Google Analytics

In order to tailor our Website to your needs and for continuous optimization of the site, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland ( Pseudonymized user profiles are created and cookies used in this context.

  • browser type/version,
  • operating system used,
  • referrer URL (previously visited site),
  • hostname of the accessing computer (IP address),
  • time of server request,

is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information is used to analyze use of the Website. This information may also be sent to third parties, insofar as this is a statutory requirement. Your IP address is never combined with other Google data. IP addresses are rendered anonymous to prevent attribution (IP masking).

The transfer of personal data to the USA will only take place with your express prior consent. The legal basis for the storage of cookies and further analysis of the data over a period of two months is the consent that is granted (point (a) of Article 6 (1) GDPR). You can withdraw your consent at any time in the cookie settings.

Showing videos (YouTube)

In several places on our Website, we have embedded videos which are provided by a third party. This concerns videos from the “YouTube” platform. YouTube is a service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland (

The video content is visualized exclusively through the provider’s use of “enhanced data protection mode”. As a result, only by clicking on a video can a cookie be stored on your computer to collect data for YouTube, and this data may be collected and processed further. We have no influence over this data collection and processing.

Google Retargeting/Remarketing

On this website, we use the remarketing function or “similar audiences” function of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ( The purpose of this function is to present you, as a visitor to our website, with interest-based advertising as part of the Google network. When you visit the website, your browser stores cookies, which are small text files, on your computer; these make it possible to recognize you when you access websites that belong to the Google advertising network. On these websites you can then be presented with advertisements based on content you have previously accessed on websites that use the Google remarketing function.  According to its own statements, Google does not combine the data collected as part of remarketing with any of your personal data that may be stored by Google. In particular, according to Google, pseudonymization is used for remarketing. Your data will also be processed by Google in the USA. Your data will only be transferred to the USA with your express consent.

The use of the remarketing function or “similar target groups” function is based on the consent you have given. The legal basis is point (a) of Article 6 (1) GDPR. You can withdraw your consent at any time in the cookies settings.

Use of Google AdWords conversion tracking

We use Google AdWords – another offer from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, to draw attention to our attractive offers by means of advertising materials (so-called Google AdWords) on external websites. These advertising materials are delivered by Google via so-called “ad servers.” Ad Server cookies are used to evaluate performance parameters such as ad impressions, clicks and conversions. This allows us to determine how successful the individual advertising measures are in relation to the data from the advertising campaigns. If you access our website via a Google ad, a cookie is stored on your PC by Google AdWords. These cookies generally lose their validity after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. The following analysis values are generally stored for this cookie, whereby the data is also processed by Google in the USA:

  • Unique cookie ID
  • Number of ad impressions per placement (frequency)
  • Last impression (relevant for post-view conversions)
  • Opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wants to be addressed)

These cookies allow Google to recognize your Internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an AdWords customer's website and the cookie stored on their computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and has been forwarded to this page. Each AdWords customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. We do not collect or process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations made available by Google. Based on these evaluations, we can identify which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of advertising materials; in particular we cannot identify users based on this information. Your data will only be transferred to the USA after granting of your express consent. The legal basis for the storage of cookies by Google is the consent that is granted (point (a) of Article 6 (1) GDPR). You can withdraw your consent at any time in the cookies settings.

Google reCAPTCHA

We integrate into our website a function for recognizing bots, e.g. when users enter data into online forms (“reCAPTCHA”); this function is provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Integration of the Trusted Shops Trustbadge

The Trusted Shops Trustbadge is integrated into this website to display our Trusted Shops quality mark and any collected reviews, as well as to offer Trusted Shops products to shoppers once they have placed an order.

The Trustbadge and the services advertised with it are an offering from Trusted Shops GmbH, Subbelrather Str. 15C, 50823 Cologne, Germany.

When the Trustbadge is accessed, the web server automatically stores a server log file which also contains your IP address, date and time of access, transferred data volume and the requesting provider (access data), and documents the access. Individual elements of access data are stored in a security database for the analysis of security anomalies. The log files are automatically deleted no later than 90 days after they are created.

Further personal data are transferred to Trusted Shops GmbH if you decide to use Trusted Shops products after completing an order, or if you have already registered for use. The contractual agreement concluded between you and Trusted Shops shall apply. Personal data are automatically collected from the order data for this purpose. A neutral parameter – an email address hashed using the cryptological one-way function – is used to automatically verify whether you as a buyer are already registered to use a product. Before it is transmitted, the email address is converted into this hash value that cannot be decoded by Trusted Shops. After checking for a match, the parameter is automatically deleted.

This is necessary for the fulfillment of our and Trusted Shops’ overriding legitimate interests in the provision of the buyer protection linked to the specific order and the transactional review services in accordance with point f) of the first sentence of Article 6(1) GDPR. Further details, including about lodging objections, can be found in the Trusted Shops privacy policy linked above and in the Trustbadge.
