The nicest evenings usually begin with a good fire.
Making a fire first is always a good idea.

The provider (and/or their web space provider) will collect data on every access to the Offer (so-called server log files). This access data will include the following information:
name of the website called up, file, date and time of the call-up, amount of data transmitted, notification of the successful call-up, browser type and version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the last site visited before), IP address and the requesting provider.
The provider will use the log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operating, securing and optimising the Offer. However, the provider reserves the right to subsequently review the log data if there is any suspicion of any illegal use based on concrete evidence.
Handling of Personal Data (Establishing Contact)
In the event of any establishing of contact with the responsible specialist dealer (postcode search), the user's information will be forwarded to the specialist dealer for the purpose of processing the request and stored with us for statistical purposes.
When the user establishes contact with the provider (for example via contact form, catalogue order or e-mail), the user's information will be stored for the purpose of processing the request, as well as in case any follow-up questions arise.
Integration of Services and Contents of Third Parties
It may be the case that contents of third parties, such as map material of Google Maps will be integrated into this online Offer. This always requires that the providers of such contents (hereinafter referred to as "Third-Party Providers") are able to see the user's IP address. This is due to the fact that they could not send the contents to the browser of the respective user without the IP address. The IP address is thus necessary in order to display such contents. We will endeavour to only use those contents whose respective providers will use the IP address only to send the contents. However, we will not have any influence in this respect if the Third-Party Providers store the IP address, for example for statistical purposes. To the extent that this is known to us, we will inform the users accordingly.

The advertising is displayed using a cookie-based analysis of previous usage and browsing behaviour. According to the best of our knowledge, no personal data is stored when a user visits our websites.

Google AdWords / Conversion Tracking
This website uses Google AdWords Conversion Tracking, an online advertising service. The conversion tracking cookie is stored when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits specific pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can detect that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to these pages. A different cookie is stored for each AdWords customer. Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers.
The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have decided to utilise conversion tracking. The customers see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a website with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that could be used to personally identify the users. Users who do not want to allow tracking can easily disable the Google conversion tracking cookie via their Internet browser, in the “user preferences” section. These users will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
