III. Information on data processing
The data processed when using our website will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies, the deletion of the data is not opposed by any legal storage obligations and no other information on individual processing methods is subsequently provided.

These cookies are used to process certain information from you an individualised extent, such as your browser or location data or your IP address. This processing makes our internet presence more user-friendly, more effective and safer, as the processing makes it possible, for example, to reproduce our Internet presence in different languages or to offer a shopping basket function.

Linking social media via graphics or text link we also advertise on our website presences on the social networks listed below. The integration takes place via a linked graphic of the respective network. The use of this linked graphic prevents the automatic establishment of a connection to the respective server of the social network when calling up a website that has a social media application, in order to display a graphic of the respective network itself.

These are initially data such as IP address, date, time and page visited. If the user is logged in to the user account of the respective network, the network operator may assign the information collected from the user’s visit to the user’s personal account.
If the user interacts via a “share” button of the respective network, this information can be stored in the personal user account of the user and, if necessary, published. If the user wants to prevent the collected information from being directly assigned to his or her user account, they must log out before clicking on the graphic.
