8. Cookies

"Cookies" are small text files that are stored by the visited website on your terminal device (e.g. smartphone, laptop, ...). A distinction is made between permanent ("persistent") and temporary ("transient") cookies. The temporary cookies (also called session cookies) are deleted directly after leaving a website and/or closing the browser. The permanent cookies remain stored on the end device for a longer period even after closing the browser. If a permanent cookie contains an indication of the lifetime, the cookie is automatically deleted by the browser after this lifetime.

A distinction is also made between first-party cookies and third-party cookies. The first-party cookies come from the website itself, whereas the third-party cookies are set by third parties that are integrated into the website (e.g. embedded tweets or YouTube videos). Cookies serve different purposes. In addition to saving e.g. view settings, cookies can also be used for tracking or analytical purposes (see also section 11 Analysis Data of this DSE).

9. Social Media Plug-ins

Within the internet presence of Christoph Miethke GmbH & Co. KG it can happen that contents of third parties are used (so-called plugins). These may occur in the form of YouTube videos, RSS feeds or graphics from other sites or through social media buttons such as the share button on Facebook. If you are on the website of Christoph Miethke GmbH & Co. KG, on which third-party content is integrated, a connection may be established with the respective social network. This enables the content of the buttons to be transmitted to your browser and integrated into the website by it. This means that the respective provider always receives the information that you have accessed the Christoph Miethke website. It is irrelevant whether you are a member of a social network or not. Furthermore, information is automatically collected by the social network, regardless of whether you actually act with the integrated content. 

The following data can be transmitted: IP address, browser information and operating systems, screen resolution, installed browser plug-ins (e.g. Adobe Flash Player), origin of the visitor (if you followed a link) and the URL of the current page.

When you are logged into one of the social networks while using the website of Christoph Miethke GmbH & Co. KG, the information about the call of the website may be linked to your member data and stored. If you are a member of a social network and do not wish to receive this information, you must log out of the social network before visiting the Christoph Miethke website.

If you use one of the plugins (e.g. by commenting or using the share button), the respective provider can assign your call to the website directly to your profile. This data is transmitted directly to the social network and stored there. Furthermore, the corresponding information is published in the respective social networks and displayed to your contacts.

Christoph Miethke GmbH & Co. KG has no influence on the extent of the data collected by the social networks. Please refer to the data protection regulations of the respective social network for the type, scope and purpose of data collection, information on the further processing of the data as well as your related rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy. You also have the option of blocking social media plug-ins by add-ons in your browser and thus preventing data transmission.

The providers of social media plug-ins are certified by PrivacyShield and thus have a data protection level comparable to that of the EU:

The data protection regulations of the respective providers can be found in the following links:

10. Analytics Services

We create visitor statistics using the application Matomo (formerly Piwik). This application causes your browser to store two identification numbers (HTTP cookies) in order to distinguish between different users. In this context, your IP address is included in the evaluation, but immediately shortened so that it can no longer be allocated to you. If you do not agree to your page views being included in the statistics, you have several options:

  • You can delete HTTP cookies in your browser.
  • In many modern browsers, you can set your browser to signal the site operators not to include them in such statistics (so-called "do-not-track"). We adhere to this guideline.
