6. What Cookies does the Website Use?

Like many other websites, we also use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. Through this, we automatically receive certain data such as IP address, browser used, operating system and your connection to the internet.

As already mentioned above (under section 5), we use first-party cookies, which are mandatory for the functioning of the website. Without these functional cookies, you cannot use the website as intended. Your decision regarding the use of cookies on our website will be retained. With these cookies, no personal data will be stored.

Your consent is not required for the use of functional cookies, because their use is simply necessary for providing the website. You cannot deactivate these cookies. However, you can set your Internet browser to block these cookies or to warn you about them. However, you accept that some parts of the website may not work.

We use notice acceptance cookies. These cookies determine whether users have accepted the use of cookies on the website. The consent to these cookies never expires.

Most of the so-called session cookies we use are automatically deleted from your device when you close the internet browser. These are used, for example, to save your language setting across different pages of an internet session.

We also use temporary or permanent cookies. These remain stored on your device even after the end of the browser session when you go offline. You will be automatically recognized when you access our services again. These cookies can remain stored on your device for between one month and several years.

In general, you can deactivate the use of cookies at any time using the settings of your browser. Please consult the help functions of your Internet browser to find out how to change these settings. Please note that individual functions of our website may not operate if you have deactivated the use of cookies.

Furthermore, the website uses analytics services (e.g. from Google) (see section 6.2 Analytical / Statistical Cookies or Web Analytics Services below). Anonymous usage data is collected and analyzed, which enables us to gain information about the use of our service. This allows us to improve the website and the products and services offered.



6.1 Log Files

When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected using a cookie. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider and similar. This is exclusively information which does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.

This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the contents of websites requested by you and is mandatory when using the Internet. It is processed in particular for the following purposes:

  • Ensuring that the website can be connected without problems;
  • Ensuring a smooth use of our website;
  • Granting the shopping cart functionality;
  • Evaluation of system safety and stability; and
  • for other administrative purposes.

Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us, if necessary, in order to optimize our internet presence and the technology behind it.


6.2 Analytical / Statistical Cookies or Web Analytics Services

Analytical / statistical cookies can be used to count visits, to identify access sources, and to determine which pages are the most popular.

Web analytics tools provide statistics and graphs to learn about the use of our services. This allows us to improve the website and the service offered and to enable user-friendly operation. Data about the use of a website is transmitted to the server used for this purpose, whereby such servers may be located abroad depending on the provider.

This website uses “Google Analytics”, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA), to analyze your use of our service. Google Analytics uses cookies text files. These are stored on your device. The information is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The use of our website can thus be evaluated and further services can be provided. This allows us to improve our service and optimize your user experience.

For Google Analytics, a commonly used web analytics tool, this data is transmitted including (full or shortened) IP addresses. The identification of individual devices should be prevented, but is not under our control.

The collected data are: shortened IP address of the user, name of the accessed website, date and time of access, browser type and version, operating system of the user, referrer URL, i.e. the previously visited page, location, as well as preferred language.

Users cannot be identified personally. The collected data cannot be allocated to any user. Anonymous data is collected and processed during the website analysis. Neither your privacy nor your safe use of the website is affected.

If we should use other web analysis tools, the process of data collection is basically the same for all web analysis tools.

Google complies with the data protection provisions of the “Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield” agreement. (Information on this can be found at

If you want to prevent the collection of data generated by cookies and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google, it is entirely at your’s discretion to download and install the available browser plugin (


7.  Are Cookies Used by Third Parties?

7.1  Use of Script Libraries (Google Web Fonts)

In order to display our content correctly and in a graphically appealing manner across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts ( on this website. Google Web Fonts are transferred to your browser’s cache to avoid multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Web Fonts or prevents access, content will be displayed in a default font.

Calling up script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. It is theoretically possible – although it is currently unclear whether and for what purposes – that those operators of such libraries collect data.

The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here:


7.2 Use of Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API to visually display geographical information. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data on the use of the map functions by visitors. You can find more detailed information about data processing by Google in the Google data protection information ( There you can also change your personal data protection settings in the data protection centre.


7.3 Embedded Videos

Videos may be played on our website. For this purpose, videos – like YouTube videos – are embedded on our website.

The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection is established to servers of YouTube. This tells YouTube which pages you visit. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube can assign your surfing behaviour to you personally. You can prevent this by first logging out of your YouTube account.

If a YouTube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behaviour.

If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program, you will not have to expect such cookies when watching YouTube videos. However, YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in your browser.

Further information on data protection at “YouTube” can be found in the provider’s privacy policy.


7.4 Social Media resp. Social Plugins

Social plugins, such as Facebook and LinkedIn, are used on our website. You can recognize the plugins by the fact that they are marked with the corresponding logo.

With the help of plug-ins, we link on our website to our Facebook page as well as to our LinkedIn page of the company.

These plugins may be used to send information, which may include personal data, to the service provider and may be used by the latter. We prevent the unconscious and unintentional collection and transmission of data to the service provider by a 2-click solution. In order to activate a desired social plugin, it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. Only when the plugin is activated is the collection of information and its transmission to the service provider triggered. We ourselves do not collect any personal data via the social plugins or their use.

You are free to select the “Block third-party cookies” function in your browser settings. This means that the browser does not send cookies to the server for embedded content from other providers. At most, you have to put up with the fact that other functions of our website will no longer work properly.

We have no influence on what data an activated plugin collects and how this data is used by the provider. At present, it must be assumed that a direct connection to the provider’s services is established and at least the IP address and device-related information is collected and used. It is also possible that the service provider will attempt to store cookies on the computer used. Please refer to the data protection information of the respective service provider to find out which specific data is collected, for what purpose and to what extent it is used, your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy.

Note: If you are logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook can identify you as a visitor to a particular page.

Note to LinkedIn:, and the Pulse app are part of LinkedIn’s service offering.


7.5 Google Analytics

The Service (the Website) uses analytics services provided by Google (see above section 6.2, Analytical / Static Cookies or Web Analytics Services).


7.6 Google Ads

Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you have reached our website via an advertisement placed by Google, Google Ads will place a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not expired, we and Google will be able to recognise that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page. Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. As a result, cookies cannot be tracked across the websites of Ads customers. The information collected through the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for advertisers who have opted in to conversion tracking. The customers will know the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users.

If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can refuse to accept the cookie that is required for this purpose – for example, by changing your browser settings to generally disable the automatic placement of cookies or to set your browser to block cookies from the “” domain.

Please note that you may not delete the opt-out cookies unless you wish to record measurement data. If you have deleted all your cookies in your browser, you have to set the respective opt-out cookie again.


7.7 Advertising / Targeting Cookies

Advertising or targeting cookies are used to identify you and evaluate your usage behavior in order to provide you with offers or services. Third-party providers such as social media operators (e.g. Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter) may use targeting cookies to recognize independent users and defined target groups on your platform and deliver offers to these individuals.
