Use of cookies

The party responsible uses so-called „cookies“ to develop and optimize the online experience and online time of the customers individually. A cookie is a text file, either stored temporarily in the memory of the computer (“session” cookie) or on the hard drive (“permanent” cookie). Cookies contain information about previous accesses to the corresponding server or information about the offer accessed. Cookies are not used to run programs or to load any viruses onto your computer. The main purpose of cookies is to provide the client with an offer suited to his/her needs and to design the use of the service as comfortable as possible. The party responsible uses „session“ cookies as well as „permanent“ cookies.

Session Cookies

The party responsible mainly uses “session cookies” that are not stored onto the hard drive of the client’s computer and are deleted once the client closes the browser. Session cookies are used for login authentication and load balancing (balancing of the system load) purposes.

Permanent Cookies

Moreover, the party responsible uses permanent cookies to store personal usage settings that a client provides when using the services of the responsible body and by doing so, the party responsible personalizes and improves the services provided. The use of permanent cookies ensures that the client automatically finds his/her personal settings on every new visit of the website of the party responsible. In addition, the service providers that assigned the party responsible with the analyses of user behavior use permanent cookies to recognize returning users. These services store the data transferred by the cookie only in an anonymous form - IP addresses are not allocated to the client.

Refusal of the Use of Cookies

The user of the websites has the possibility to object to the use of cookies at any time. This generally happens through changes in the settings of the browser or through additional programs. Please check the help function of your browser for further information. If the client decides to deactivate cookies this can reduce the scope of services provided and can have negative effects on the use of the services provided by the party responsible.

Use of Analyses Programs

The party responsible conducts analyses of the clients’ behavior when he/she uses its services or has these analyses carried out. For this purpose anonymous or pseudonymous user profiles are created. The creation of these user profiles fulfills the sole purpose to improve the services of the responsible body.

As part of its web analyses the responsible body also uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizelp()”, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Therefore, the IP addresses are only processed further in abbreviated form to prevent them being directly linked to a particular individual. You can object to the data collection and storage carried out as part of this process at any time with effect for the future. To do so, please contact Google directly >>www.google.de

Google asks its users, such as the responsible body, to provide the following information in its privacy statement. The SCHEELEN® AG complies with this request of Google by the publication of the following information:

“Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer, to analyze the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to a Google server in the U.S. and stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website providers and providing other website activity and internet related services. Also, Google will transmit this information to third parties if required by law or if third parties process the information on behalf of Google. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google Inc. You may refuse the use of cookies by your individual browser settings, but we point out that in this case you might not be able to use all features of this website.
