Unfortunately, it is in the nature of things that these explanations sound very technical. However, we tried to describe the most important things as simple and clear as possible during the creation.
Automatic data storage
When you visit websites today, certain information is created and stored automatically, including on this website.
If you visit our website as you are now, our web server (the computer on which this website is stored) automatically stores data such as
- the address (URL) of the website being accessed
- Browser and browser version
- the operating system used
- the address (URL) of the previously visited page (Referrer URL)
- the host name and IP address of the device from which it is accessed
- Date and time
files (web server log files).
As a rule, web server log files are stored for two weeks and then deleted automatically. We do not share this data, but we cannot rule out the possibility that such data may be viewed in the presence of unlawful conduct.
Our website uses HTTP cookies to store user-specific data.
What exactly are cookies?
Whenever you browse the Internet, use a browser. Known browsers include Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Edge. Most web pages store small text files in your browser. These files are called cookies.
Eines ist nicht von der Hand zu weisen: Cookies sind echt nützliche Helferlein. Fast alle Webseiten verwenden Cookies. Genauer gesprochen sind es HTTP-Cookies, da es auch noch anderer Cookies für andere Anwendungsbereiche gibt. HTTP-Cookies sind kleine Dateien, die von unserer Website auf Ihrem Computer gespeichert werden. Diese Cookie-Dateien werden automatisch im Cookie-Ordner, quasi dem „Hirn“ Ihres Browsers, untergebracht. Ein Cookie besteht aus einem Namen und einem Wert. Bei der Definition eines Cookies müssen zusätzlich ein oder mehrere Attribute angegeben werden.
Cookies speichern gewisse Nutzerdaten von Ihnen, wie beispielsweise Sprache oder persönliche Seiteneinstellungen. Wenn Sie unsere Seite wieder aufrufen, übermittelt Ihr Browser die „userbezogenen“ Informationen an unsere Seite zurück. Dank der Cookies weiß unsere Website, wer Sie sind und bietet Ihnen Ihre gewohnte Standardeinstellung. In einigen Browsern hat jedes Cookie eine eigene Datei, in anderen wie beispielsweise Firefox sind alle Cookies in einer einzigen Datei gespeichert.
Es gibt sowohl Erstanbieter Cookies als auch Drittanbieter-Cookies. Erstanbieter-Cookies werden direkt von unserer Seite erstellt, Drittanbieter-Cookies werden von Partner-Webseiten (z.B. Google Analytics) erstellt. Jedes Cookie ist individuell zu bewerten, da jedes Cookie andere Daten speichert. Auch die Ablaufzeit eines Cookies variiert von ein paar Minuten bis hin zu ein paar Jahren. Cookies sind keine Software-Programme und enthalten keine Viren, Trojaner oder andere „Schädlinge“. Cookies können auch nicht auf Informationen Ihres PCs zugreifen.
For example, cookie data may look like this:
- Name: _ga
- Expiration time: 2 Years
- Usage: Differentiation of website visitors
- Beispielhafter Wert: GA1.2.1326744211.152211102272
A browser should support the following minimum sizes:
- A cookie should contain at least 4096 bytes
- At least 50 cookies should be stored per domain
- A total of at least 3,000 cookies should be stored
What types of cookies are there?
There are 4 types of cookies:
These cookies are necessary to ensure basic functions of the website. For example, these cookies are needed if a user puts a product in the shopping cart, then continues to surf on other pages and later goes to the checkout. These cookies do not delete the shopping cart, even if the user closes his browser window.
These cookies collect information about the user’s behaviour and whether the user receives any error messages. These cookies are also used to measure the loading time and behavior of the website in different browsers.
These cookies improve the user experience. For example, entered locations, font sizes, or form data are saved.
These cookies are also called targeting cookies. They are used to provide the user with individually adapted advertising. This can be very practical, but also very annoying.
Usually, when you visit a website for the first time, you are asked which of these types of cookies you want to allow. And of course, this decision is also stored in a cookie.
How can I delete cookies?
Wie und ob Sie Cookies verwenden wollen, entscheiden Sie selbst. Unabhängig von welchem Service oder welcher Website die Cookies stammen, haben Sie immer die Möglichkeit Cookies zu löschen, nur teilweise zuzulassen oder zu deaktivieren. Zum Beispiel können Sie Cookies von Drittanbietern blockieren, aber alle anderen Cookies zulassen.
If you want to determine which cookies have been stored in your browser, if you want to change or delete cookie settings, you can find this in your browser settings:
If you do not want to have cookies, you can set up your browser to always inform you when a cookie is to be set. This allows you to decide whether or not to allow the cookie for each cookie. The procedure varies depending on the browser. It is best to search the instructions in Google with the search term “Delete cookies Chrome” or “Disable cookies Chrome” in the case of a Chrome browser or exchange the word “Chrome” for the name of your browser, e.g. Edge, Firefox, Safari.
The so-called “cookie guidelines” have been in place since 2009. It states that the storage of cookies requires the consent of the website visitor (i.e. you). However, there are still very different reactions to these directives within EU countries. In Austria, however, this directive was transposed into Paragraph 96(4) of the Directive. 3 of the Telecommunications Act (TKG).
If you want to know more about cookies and don’t shy away from technical documentation, we recommend https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6265, the Request for Comments of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) called “HTTP State Management Mechanism”.
