7. Use of Google Analytics

We rely on our legitimate interests (for example: interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer) as defined in Art. 6 Section. 1 lit. f. DSGVO through the use of Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC ("Google"). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookies about the use of the online offer by the users are usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

8. Social Plugins

Our website uses social plugins from various social networks such as "facebook.com". The plugin is recognizable by the respective logo.

If you use a website with corresponding social plugins, your browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of the respective operator of that plugin/logo (for example: facebook.com). The content of the plugin is transmitted by the service provider directly to your browser and integrated by the provider in the website. Please note that data processing by Facebook takes place outside of the European Union. In addition, we have no influence on the extent of the data collected through the use of social plugins and therefore inform you according to our knowledge:

Through the integration of social plugins, the providers receive the information that you have accessed in the corresponding website of our website. If you are logged in to a service like Facebook, this provider can assign the visit to your account. If you interact with the plugin, e.g. press the Facebook "Like" button or leave a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to the respective service provider and stored there. If you are not a member of a social network, there is still the possibility that the provider learns and stores your IP address. The purpose and scope of the data collection by the further processing and use of the data by the service provider as well as your related rights and the privacy policy can be accessed below.

The Facebook social network is operated by Facebook Inc.,: 1601 S. California Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94304 USA. European office: Facebook Ireland Limited: Hanover Reach, 5-7 Hanover Quay, Dublin 2 Ireland



You can prevent the inclusion of social plugins, but also the use of software for website analysis by using appropriate software, such as the program "Ghostery".

In addition, a "logout" with the respective social network prevents the respective network from assigning the data collected by accessing our Internet service to your profile.

9. How do we protect you from abuse?

In order to protect against misuse, the IP address of your computer is transmitted to us and stored for 7 days. It is strictly protected against access by third parties. This allows us to clarify orders under false identities, orders for damage to third parties and detect fraud attempts. This data can be shared with law enforcement agencies.

10. No liability for websites or services of third parties

In the design and operation of our offers, we cooperate with various partners who offer websites and Internet services. This may be accessible through links from our website. The use of these third party services is outside of our responsibility.
