3. DATA COLLECTION ON OUR WEBSITE

Cookies

If the contact form is used to contact the operator of this website, a technically necessary HTTP-Cookie „wbk_sid“ will be put on the website visitor’s operating system. This cookie contains a long combination of digits and letters („ID“). The cookie serves to identify the website visitor in case of a call for dispatch of login-data or contact information to differentiate him from abusive website visitors (like SPAM-Bots). If the website visitor closes the browser, this cookie will be deleted automatically from his operating system. The cookie is therefor valid only while visiting this website (Session-Cookie). 

Server log files

The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in "server log files". These are:

Browser type and browser version

Operating system used

Referrer URL

Host name of the accessing computer

Time of the server request

IP address

These data will not be combined with data from other sources. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.

Contact form

Should you send us questions via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your permission. Your data will only be collected in the operator’s email program connected to the contact form. Your data will be deleted after 30 days.

We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.

4. PLUGINS AND TOOLS

YouTube

Our website uses plug-ins of the YouTube platform, which is being operated by Google Ireland Limited („Google“), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

After you have started to play a video, YouTube will be able to place various cookies on your device. With the assistance of these cookies, YouTube will be able to obtain information about our website visitor. Among other things, this information will be used to generate video statistics with the aim of improving the user friendliness of the site and to prevent attempts to commit fraud. These cookies will stay on your device until you delete them.

Under certain circumstances, additional data processing transactions may be triggered after you have started to play a YouTube video, which are beyond our control.

5. ONLINE MARKETING AND AFFILIATE PROGRAMS

Amazon

The operators of this website participate in the Amazon EU partners’ programme. Amazon integrates ads and links to the German Amazon website -  Amazon.de - into our website, which allows us to generate earnings in the form of advertising cost reimbursements. Amazon uses cookies for this programme to be able to determine the source of orders placed. This allows Amazon to determine that you have clicked the partner link on our website.

The archiving of „Amazon cookies“ is based on Art. 6 lit. f GDPR. Based on the aforementioned regulation, the website operator has a legitimate interest to do this since the determination of the website operator’s affiliate earnings is contingent upon the placement of cookies.
