  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • IP address

There is no merging of this data with other data sources. The basis for data processing is Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR, which allows the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Cookies


Our website uses cookies. These are small text files that your web browser saves on your device. Cookies help us to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer.

Some cookies are "session cookies." Such cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your browser session. However, other cookies remain on your device until you delete them yourself. Such cookies help us to recognize you when you return to our website.

With a modern web browser you can monitor, restrict or prevent the setting of cookies. Many web browsers can be configured in such a way that cookies are automatically deleted when the program is closed. Deactivating cookies can limit the functionality of our website.

The setting of cookies, which are necessary to carry out electronic communication processes or to provide certain functions you wish to use (e.g. shopping cart), is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f GDPR. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and smooth provision of our services. If other cookies are set (e.g. for analysis functions), these will be treated separately in this data protection declaration.

Third party


Cloudflare

We use Cloudflare from Cloudflare, Inc. (101 Townsend St., San Francisco, CA 94107, USA) on this website to make our website faster and safer. Cloudflare uses cookies and processes user data. Cloudflare, Inc. is an American company that offers a content delivery network and various security services. These services are located between the user and our hosting provider. We will try to explain in more detail below what all this means.

What is Cloudflare?

A content delivery network (CDN), as provided by Cloudflare, is nothing more than a network of connected servers. Cloudflare has distributed such servers all over the world to bring websites to your screen faster. Simply put, Cloudflare makes copies of our website and places them on their own servers. When you visit our website now, a load balancing system ensures that most of our website is delivered by the server that can display our website to you the fastest. A CDN significantly shortens the data transfer route to your browser. Thus, the content of our website is delivered to you by Cloudflare not only from our hosting server, but from servers from all over the world. The use of Cloudflare is particularly helpful for users from abroad, since here the page can be delivered from a server nearby. In addition to the fast delivery of websites, Cloudflare also offers various security services, such as DDoS protection or the web application firewall.

Why we use Cloudflare on our website?

Of course we want to offer you the best possible service with our website. Cloudflare helps us to make our website faster and safer. Cloudflare offers us both web optimization and security services such as DDoS protection and web firewall. This also includes a reverse proxy and the content distribution network (CDN). Cloudflare blocks threats and limits abusive bots and crawlers that are wasting our bandwidth and server resources. By storing our website on local data centers and blocking spam software, Cloudflare enables us to reduce our bandwidth usage by around 60%. Providing content via a data center in your area and doing some web optimizations there reduces the average loading time of a website by around half. With the setting “I'm Under Attack Mode” (“I'm under attack” mode), according to Cloudflare, further attacks can be weakened by displaying a JavaScript arithmetic task that must be solved before a user can access a website. Overall, this makes our website much more powerful and less susceptible to spam or other attacks.

What data is stored by Cloudflare?

Cloudflare generally only forwards data that is controlled by website operators. The content is not determined by Cloudflare, but always by the website operator himself. In addition, Cloudflare may collect certain information about the use of our website and process data that is sent by us or for which Cloudflare has received instructions. In most cases, Cloudflare receives data such as IP address, contact and log information, security fingerprints and performance data for websites. & Nbsp; Log data helps Cloudflare, for example, to identify new threats. In this way, Cloudflare can guarantee a high level of security protection for our website. Cloudflare processes this data as part of the services in compliance with the applicable laws. This of course also includes the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

For security reasons, Cloudflare also uses a cookie. The cookie (__cfduid) is used to identify individual users behind a shared IP address and to apply security settings for each individual user. This cookie becomes very useful, for example, if you use our website from a location with a number of infected computers. However, if your computer is trustworthy, we can recognize this by means of the cookie. In this way, you can surf our website unhindered and worry-free, despite infected PCs in your environment. It is also important to know that this cookie does not store any personal data. This cookie is essential for the Cloudflare security functions and cannot be deactivated.

Name: __cfduid
Value: d798bf7df9c1ad5b7583eda5cc5e78331617443260-3
Usage: Security settings for each individual visitor
Expiry Date: after a year

Cloudflare also works with third party providers. They may only process personal data under the instruction of Cloudflare and in accordance with the data protection guidelines and other confidentiality and security measures. Without our explicit consent, Cloudflare does not pass on any personal data.

How long and where is the data stored?

Cloudflare stores your information primarily in the US and the European Economic Area. Cloudflare can transmit and access the information described above from all over the world. In general, Cloudflare stores user-level data for Free, Pro and Business versions of domains for less than 24 hours. For enterprise domains that have activated Cloudflare Logs (formerly Enterprise LogShare or ELS), the data can be stored for up to 7 days. However, if IP addresses trigger security warnings on Cloudflare, there may be exceptions to the storage duration listed above.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

Cloudflare only stores data logs for as long as necessary, and in most cases this data is deleted within 24 hours. Cloudflare also does not store any personal data, such as your IP address. However, there is information that Cloudflare stores indefinitely as part of its permanent logs in order to improve the overall performance of Cloudflare Resolver and to identify any security risks. You can click on which permanent logs are saved https://www.cloudflare.com/application/privacypolicy/. All data that Cloudflare collects (temporarily or permanently) is cleaned of all personal data. All permanent logs are also anonymized by Cloudflare.

In their privacy policy, Cloudflare states that they are not responsible for the content they receive. For example, if you ask Cloudflare whether you can update or delete your content, Cloudflare generally refers to us as the website operator. You can also completely prevent the entire collection and processing of your data by Cloudflare by deactivating the execution of script code in your browser or by integrating a script blocker into your browser.

Please note that when you use this tool, your data can also be stored and processed outside the EU. Most third countries (including the USA) are not considered secure under current European data protection law. Data to insecure third countries may not simply be transferred, stored and processed there unless there are suitable guarantees (such as EU standard contractual clauses) between us and the non-European service provider.

Google Analytics

Our website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider of the web analysis service is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses "cookies." These are small text files that your web browser saves on your device and that enable website usage to be analyzed. Information generated by cookies about your use of our website is transmitted to a Google server and stored there. The server location is usually the USA.

Google Analytics cookies are set on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f GDPR. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize our website and, if necessary, advertising.

IP anonymization

We use Google Analytics in conjunction with the IP anonymization function. It ensures that Google shortens your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the USA. There may be exceptional cases in which Google transmits the full IP address to a server in the USA and abbreviates it there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

Browser plugin

The setting of cookies by your web browser can be prevented. However, this could limit some functions of our website. You can also prevent the collection of data relating to your website usage including your IP address and subsequent processing by Google. You can do this by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Objection to data collection

You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set which prevents the collection of your data on future visits to our website: Deactivate Google Analytics.

You can find details on how user data is handled by Google Analytics in Google's data protection declaration: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.

Order processing

In order to fully comply with the statutory data protection requirements, we have concluded an order processing contract with Google.

Demographic characteristics in Google Analytics

Our website uses the “demographic characteristics” function of Google Analytics. It can be used to create reports that contain statements on the age, gender and interests of the site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as from visitor data from third-party providers. It is not possible to assign the data to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time. You can do this via the ad settings in your Google account or by generally prohibiting the collection of your data by Google Analytics, as explained under “Objection to data collection”.
