6. Place of processing
The processing of personal data collected by means of cookies is generally carried out in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA) or in third countries for which the European Commission has determined an adequate level of data protection in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR pursuant to Article 45 (3) GDPR.
In the case of cookies from so-called third-party providers that are based in third countries such as the USA, it is not possible to guarantee a level of data protection that complies with the GDPR. In such cases, the requirements of Article 44 et seq. GDPR apply. To adapt the level of data protection to the standard of the GDPR through appropriate guarantees, so-called standard contractual clauses of the European Commission pursuant to Article 46 (2) lit c) GDPR are concluded with the providers in particular. In this context, please note that by giving your consent, there may still be risks that transmitted data may not be processed in accordance with the GDPR.
a) Technically necessary cookies and similar technologies
Technically necessary cookies are classified as cookies that must be present for the website to provide basic website functions. They are essential to access website functions, such as logging in, adding items to a shopping cart or electronic billing. They allow a user to navigate back and forth between pages without losing their previous actions from the same session. Since these cookies are necessary for the functionality of a website, website owners do not need to obtain the user's consent to place technically necessary cookies on their devices.
Data processing by means of technically necessary cookies and similar technologies is carried out - insofar as there is a corresponding underlying contractual relationship - on the basis of Article 6 (1) lit b) GDPR or on the basis of Article 6 (1) lit c) GDPR - insofar as necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation - and otherwise on the basis of our legitimate interest pursuant to Article 6 (1) lit f) GDPR. A legitimate interest results from the described purposes of use of the respective technology as well as ensuring the technical operation of our website with certain basic functionalities. The following table lists in detail the services that use technically required cookies or similar technologies.
b) Functional cookiesFunctionality cookies allow websites to remember the user's preferences and the choices they make on the website, including username, region and language. This allows the website to offer personalized features, such as local news and weather reports, when you specify your location. They are anonymous and do not track browsing activity on other websites. Functionality cookies can be first-party, third-party, persistent or session cookies. Similar to technically necessary cookies, functional cookies are used to provide services you request. These cookies can remember your preferences to improve the user experience on a website. Examples of function cookies include web chat services, user preferences, and the ability to comment on a blog you visit.
Data processing using function cookies and similar technologies is based solely on your voluntary consent pursuant to Article 6(1) lita) GDPR. If you give us your consent to this, the technologies will be used when you call up our website or when you call up an offer provided via it. You have the option here to extend your consent either to individual services or to all services in this category. You can also revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. The following table lists cookies that are technically necessary to provide these services.
c) Analytics cookies and experience cookiesAnalytics cookies are cookies that track how users navigate and interact with a website. The information collected helps the website owner to improve the website. These cookies can be set to store user data for future correspondence submitted through a form, such as contact pages or comment forms. We use user data to develop algorithms that help us make better product and content suggestions.
In this context, the data processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of your voluntary consent pursuant to Article 6 (1) lit a) GDPR. If you give us your consent to this, cookies and similar technologies may be experienced when you call up our website. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. The following table lists cookies that are technically necessary to provide these services.
d) Enhancement cookiesWith the help of these trackers, we can improve the user experience by offering advanced options to manage settings and features to interact with external networks and platforms.
In this regard, data processing is based solely on your voluntary consent pursuant to Article 6 (1) lit a) GDPR. If you give us your consent, these cookies and similar technologies will be set when you call up our website or when you call up an offer provided via our site. You have the option here to extend your consent either to individual services or to all services in this category. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. The following table lists cookies that are technically necessary to provide these services.
e) Marketing cookies and targeting cookiesCookies and similar technologies are used in marketing to provide you with interest-based content and ads as well as to provide more accurate campaign performance reports. These technologies are sometimes set by third parties (i.e., marketing and social media partners selected by us). As a result, these third-parties receive information about your use of our website and may combine this information with other data they may have received from you elsewhere.
Marketing cookies store information about websites visited by users. This data is used to display personalized advertising tailored to users' interests.
Targeting cookies extend the functionality of marketing cookies by allowing cookies to follow users when they visit other websites. Sometimes the website with the advertising cookies does not display the ads, but it can target users with ads elsewhere even after they leave the website. Examples of targeting and advertising cookies are social media cookies that are placed on websites to track users on the web and show them advertisements on social media platforms.
In this context, the data processing takes place exclusively on the basis of your voluntary consent pursuant to Article 6 (1) lit a) GDPR. If you give us your consent for this, cookies and similar technologies will be set when you call up our website or when you call up an offer provided via it, and you will also be able to experience interest-based advertising from us on other websites and social media offers. You have the option here to extend your consent either to individual services or to all services in this category. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. The following table cookies that are technically necessary to provide these services.
