Cookies are small files which are stored on your data carrier and which store certain settings and data for exchanging with our system through your browser. Cookies cannot execute programmes or transmit viruses to your computer. They serve to make the internet offer overall user friendly and more effective.
Basically there are two different types of cookies, the so-called session cookies which are deleted as soon as your browser is closed (end of session) and temporary/permanent cookies which are stored for a longer time or indefinitely on your data carrier. This storage helps us to design our website and makes your use easier by for example storing certain input for you so that you do not have to keep repeating them.
Most of the cookies we use are session cookies and are automatically deleted from your hard disk at the end of a browser session. In addition we also use permanent cookies which remain on your hard disk. During the next visit it will be automatically recognised that you have already visited us and which input and settings you prefer. These cookies are stored on your hard disk and delete themselves after a specified time.
The cookies used by us cannot be assigned to a certain person and thus also not to you. An identification number is assigned to the cookie when it is activated. It is not possible at any time to assign your personal data to this identification number and it is not done. Storage of your name or similar data which would allow the cookie to be assigned to you is not made.
You can delete cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time and configure your browser settings according to your wishes (e.g. accepting cookies from third parties or rejecting all cookies). How you can reject new cookies or delete cookies already received is usually displayed in the menu bar of your web browser via the help function. However, we would like to make you aware that you may then not be able to use all the functions of our online offers.
6. Analysis and Advertising Measures
To improve our website we use different technologies to analyse user behaviour and to assess the associated data. Data collected includes in particular the IP address of the end device, the date and time of access, the identification number of a cookie, the device identification of mobile end devices and also technical data on the browser and the operating system. However, the data collected will only be stored under a pseudonym so that no direct conclusions about the persons is possible. This data will also be processed for marketing purposes so that individual advertising messages can be played to you. The legal basis for data processing is article 6 section 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR being based on the legitimate interest of Alnavit advertising the products and analysis of user behaviour to improve and further develop the website. In the following section we would like to clarify to you this technology and the suppliers used for this.
Below you will find objection options for our analysis and advertising measures. Alternatively you can reject these by appropriate settings on the http://preferences-mgr.truste.com/, a site with a number of objection options of advertisers. The website of TRUSTe, Inc, 835 Market Street, San Francisco, CA 94103-1905, USA („TRUSTe“) allows you to deactivate all advertisements at once using the opt-out cookie or alternatively to carry out settings for each provider.

7. Social Plugins
Facebook is a social network of Facebook Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California, 94025, USA („Facebook”). Facebook functions are labelled with the Facebook logo. Further information can be added depending on the type of function (e.g. "share", "recommend“). Facebook is subject to EU-US Privacy Shield in the case that personal data is transmitted to the USA. The legal basis is article 6 section 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR being based on our legitimate interest of attracting attention to our activities in social networks, we inform you of our content via social networks and thus increase our coverage.
If you visit an Alnavit website which contains a Facebook button and you click the Facebook button, a direct link with the Facebook server is established and the button to the respective function is loaded from there. At the same time the information is transmitted to Facebook that a corresponding internet site of Alnavit was accessed. Except you visit a site on which we use a Facebook plug-in with the aid of which the current Facebook activities of Alnavit on our online offers are shown. In this case a direct link with the Facebook server is established from your browser or the application.
If you are logged in at the same time as Facebook user to Facebook then it also possible to assign a page visit to your profile on Facebook. If you click an integrated Facebook button (or you are already logged in), you can open for example the "shared" or "recommended" information on Facebook in your profile and your chronicle/timeline in short form. Facebook can, if necessary, collect and store further use data. In this way Facebook user profiles can be made which go beyond that which you disclose on Facebook. You can deactivate advertisements on the basis of social actions in the advertising preferences of Facebook.
Alnavit does not find out at any time which Facebook buttons you used when, but receives from Facebook exclusively summarised non-personal statistics about the use of the Alnavit fan pages on Facebook and summarised statistics for use of the Facebook buttons.
Further information can be found in the Data Protection Declaration of Facebook.
Our online offer uses Google Web Fonts for uniform presentation of fonts, a service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland („Google“). When accessing a page your browser loads the required web fonts in your browser cache in order to display text and fonts correctly. If your browser does not support Web Fonts, a standard font from your computer is used.
For this purpose the browser you use must establish a connection to the Google server. Through this, Google receives information that our website was accessed through your IP address. The server to which a connection was established to can be located in the US. In the case that personal data is transmitted to the USA Google is subject to EU-US Privacy Shield. We use Google Web Fonts in the interests of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online presence. The legal basis for data processing is article 6 section 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR being based on the legitimate interests. Further information can be found in the frequent questions and in the Data Protection Declaration of Google.
