Most of the commonly used cookies are so called "session-cookies". Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain on the user's end device until they are deleted manually. Such cookies are used to remember the browser of the user upon his/her next visit.

You can adjust your browser settings in such a way, that you will be informed whenever a website tries to set cookies or even allow them only in individual cases, disable cookies entirely as well as automatically delete them upon closing your browser. When you disable cookies, the usability of websites can be limited though.

Cookies that are necessary to execute electronical communication or certain features that are in your interest (e.g. Shopping cart features) can be stored on the legal basis of Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Information about session-cookies

In addition, a cookie also contains information about it's source and the storage period. Session cookies cannot save other data.

Server-Log Files

For technical reasons, especially to provide a safe and stable internet presence, the webspace provider of this website (A2Hosting) collects and saves information automatically in so called server-log files which your internet browser transmits automatically to said webspace provider. Here is a list of such information:

- Browser type and browser version

- time and date of server request
- ip-adress

This data will be saved temporarily and we do not join such data with other data sources.

The foundation for the data processing is Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or a pre-contractual measure. It is in our interest to improve stability, functionality and safety of our web presence.

Without said provision, we will not, or only partly, be able to answer your requests. We will not give out such data without your clear consent.

The processing of data submitted through email or similar contact options therefore only takes place based on your consent (Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can withdraw a previously granted compliance at any time. A formless notice sent to our email is enough. The legitimacy of any data processing until a withdrawal remains untouched.

The data sent to us through an email or similar contact options remains with us, until you request a deletion of said data, withdraw your consent for data processing or the purpose for the data processing is not applicable anymore. (e.g. After a completed processing of your request). Mandatory legal regulations - especially storage periods - remain untouched.

5. Social Media

Our social media profiles

Data processing through social networks

We maintain publicly accessible social media profiles. Below, you can find more information about the accounts that we use.

Social networks such as Facebook or Twitter can comprehensively track and analyze your user behaviour if you visit their websites or websites that utilize social media plugins (like-buttons,etc.)

By visiting our social media profiles, a range of data processing activities will be initialized.

If you visit our social media profiles while logged into your own social media account, it is possible that the social network can track and identify your user activity and link it to your account.

It is however also possible that your personal data can be tracked without being logged into a social media account and even if you don't own an account with the particular social network.

In such a case, the data processing would likely happen through the use of cookies that are saved on your device or by tracking your IP adress.

With the utilization of your collected data, social networks can create user accounts that are based on your preferences and interests. Through this process, social networks aim to show you advertisings that are tailored based on your interests on all devices that you are logged in or used to be logged in prior to visiting the site.

Please note that we can't follow, control and/or process the data processings of social networks.

Depending on the social network, additional data processing activities may be applied by said networks. For further details, please read the terms of use and privacy policies of the social networks that you visit.

Legal Basis

We aim to provide a complete online presence through our social media accounts.

This is considered a legitimtate interest based on Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

The data processing and analyzing that is initiated by the social networks may depend on a different legal basis, that needs to be released by the social networks. (for example consent based on Art. 6 Abs 1. lit. a GDPR)

Responsible location and enforcement of titles

If you visit our social media accounts, both us and the social network are mutually responsible for the initiated data processing. You can exercise your rights (right of information, correction, deletion, limitation of processing, data transfering, right of objection) equally towards us as well as the social network in question.

Please note, that despite the mutual responsibility that we share with the social networks, we can't fully influence the data processing of the social networks. Our own capabilities are dramatically limited by the company politics of each social network.

Duration of data storage

Data that we collect directly via our social media presence will be deleted from our systems as soon as the reason for data storage is no longer applicable, you request us to delete your data or you withdraw your consent for the storage of personal data. Saved cookies will remain on the end device until you delete them. Mandatory legal obligations, particularly legal storage periods, remain unaffected.

We unfortunately have no influence or control regarding the data storage duration of the data that the social networks save themselves for their own purposes. You can visit the specific social network/s and read their privacy policies and terms of use for more information or perform additional research via the internet.
