They are used, for example, to enable you to use the shopping cart function across multiple pages.

These cookies are stored on your hard drive and delete themselves after the specified time. Their lifespan is between 1 month and 10 years. This allows us to present our offer to you in a more user-friendly, effective and secure manner and, for example, to display information on the site that is specifically tailored to your interests.

We use Google Maps (API) on our website. Google Maps belongs to Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive (land) maps to visually display geographical information. If you use this service, our location will be displayed to you and a possible approach will be facilitated.
Already when calling up those sub-pages in which the map of Google Maps is integrated, information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) is transmitted to Google servers in the USA and stored there. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not want the assignment with your profile at Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit.f DSGVO on the basis of Google's legitimate interests in the insertion of personalized advertising, market research and/or needs-based design of its website. You have a right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right.

Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
To protect your data, we maintain technical and organizational security measures in accordance with Art. 32 DSGVO, which we constantly adapt to the state of the art.
We also do not guarantee that our offer will be available at certain times; disruptions, interruptions or failures cannot be ruled out. The servers we use are carefully secured on a regular basis.

If and to the extent that we involve third parties in the performance of contracts (such as logistics service providers), they will only receive personal data to the extent that the transfer is necessary for the corresponding service.
In the event that we outsource certain parts of data processing ("commissioned processing"), we contractually oblige commissioned processors to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of data protection laws and to ensure the protection of the rights of the data subject.
A data transfer to entities or persons outside the EU outside the case mentioned in this statement in number 4 does not take place and is not planned.
