The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

IV. On several pages, we use cookies to make our website more attractive and to allow the use of certain functions. Cookies are small files that are saved on your data carrier. Most of the cookies we use are deleted at the end of the browser session from your hard drive (so-called session cookies). Other cookies are permanent, which are stored on your data carrier for a longer period of time or, in some cases, permanently (so called temporary/permanent cookies). These cookies are used to welcome you with your username and to show your orders and to avoid re-entering your password or to fill out forms with your data. Our partner companies are not allowed to process or use data via cookies.

V. Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) provided by the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are identifiable by a Facebook logo or the notice “Facebook Social Plugin”. For a full list of all social plugins and their appearance please see developers.facebook.com/plugins.
When you visit a page of our website that contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook servers. Facebook directly transfers the plugin content to your browser which embeds the latter into the website, enabling Facebook to receive information about your having accessed the respective page of our website. For this purpose, the internet address of the visited site (your IP address included) is transferred to a USA-based Facebook server where the data are stored. This occurs even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not logged into Facebook at the time.
If you are logged into Facebook, your visit can be assigned to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking “Like”, or entering a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by it. The information can also be published on Facebook, and shown to your Facebook friends.
If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to connect the data concerning your visit to our website with your member data already stored by Facebook, please log off Facebook before entering our website. You can also block Facebook social Plugins by using add-ons for your browser, like the “Facebook Blocker”.
For information on the purpose and scope of data collection by Facebook and how it is processed and used, as well as your rights in this respect and settings options for protecting your privacy please visit Facebook’s privacy policy.

VI. Use of Twitter plugins (eg ‘Tweet’ button)
Our website includes so-called social plug-ins of the micro-blogging service Twitter, which are operated by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA (“Twitter”). The plug-ins are identified by a Twitter logo, for example, in the form of a blue “Twitter bird”. If you want further information about Twitter, the plug-ins and their purpose please visit: https://twitter.com/about/resources/buttons
When you access a page on our website which contains such a plug-in, your browser connects directly with Twitter’s servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted directly by Twitter to your browser and included on the page. By this inclusion of the plug-ins, Twitter receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you don’t have a Twitter profile or are not presently logged in to Twitter. This information (including your IP address), is transmitted by your browser directly to a Twitter server in the USA and then stored.
If you are logged in to Twitter, your visit to our website can be directly assigned to your Twitter account. If you interact with the plug-ins, for example, activate the “Twitter” button, the corresponding information is also directly transmitted to a Twitter server and stored. The information is also published in your Twitter account and is shown to your contacts.
For information on the purpose and scope of the collection of data and the subsequent processing and use of the data by Twitter, as well as your corresponding rights and setting options for controlling privacy, please refer to the data protection instructions of Twitter: https://twitter.com/privacy
