We use one performance or statistics cookie:
This type of cookies collect information about how you use our website (for example, internet browsers used, number of visits, pages viewed or time spent on the website). These cookies do not store any information that allows a visitor to be personally identified. The information collected using these cookies is aggregated and is therefore anonymous.
We use the following statistical cookies:
Name:_ga (Google Analytics)
Type: Analytics cookie
Purpose: Saves an anonymous ID for every visitor to this website, so that the pages being accessed can be assigned to a user.

Duration: 2 years after visiting this website
This website has a link to the map service Google Maps. Provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
This is a link, so your data will not be forwarded to the map service operator when visiting our website.
Only when you follow the link by clicking, will you be redirected to the website of Google Maps and leave the website of Cobiax Deutschland GmbH.
If you have clicked on the link and you have been redirected to the website of the map service provider, we have no influence on the data collected, data processing operations and are not responsible for this data processing. In this respect, we are not responsible for the aforementioned case within the meaning of the GDPR. We are not aware of the full extent of the data collection, its legal basis, the purposes and the retention periods. Consequently, the information we provide here is not necessarily complete.
In order to adapt our website to the needs of our customers, visits to our website are analysed. To do this, we use your IP address, which we previously make anonymous (and possibly similar numbers that are exchanged between computers during normal Internet use). This is done with the intention of being able to carry out an analysis. Among other things, this involves the analysis of the data of the websites visited via the Cobiax Deutschland GmbH website, your browser and your computer.
Cookies are also set for this purpose. Our cookie only contains a unique number so that we can recognize you on our websites – but not on third-party websites. The stored data is evaluated exclusively for statistical purposes. The IP address is not associated with a particular person.
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. Google Analytics uses what are known as “cookies”, text files stored on your computer that allow your use of the website to be analysed. Information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) is normally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there, as soon as you have given your consent for this to happen.
IP anonymisation has been enabled on our website. Therefore, the user’s IP address is first shortened by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting parties to the European Economic Area agreement. The full IP address is only transferred to a Google server in the US and shortened there in exceptional cases, if your consent has been provided. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website on behalf of the operator of this website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services related to website and internet use. The IP-address transferred from your browser by Google Analytics is not merged with other information held by Google. The placement of cookies can be disabled by changing your browser software’s settings as appropriate. However, if the placement of cookies has been disabled, you may no longer be able to use the full functionality of this website. In addition, you can prevent Google collecting data generated by the cookie relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plugin available from the page “Browser add-on for disabling Google Analytics“.
You can prevent Google Analytics collecting data by clicking on the following link. A data element that save your choice is stored on your browser using local storage. Unlike with cookies, these do not send any data to the server from which the cookie was sent. The information only remains on your system for this purpose: Disable Google Analytics.
This site uses so-called Web Fonts for the uniform representation of fonts. Provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. When you visit our page, your browser loads the required Web Fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.
Google Web Fonts is hosted on our local servers, so your personal information for using Google Web Fonts is stored only on our local servers and is not redirected to the provider. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a consistent and attractive presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
If your browser does not support Web Fonts, a default font will be used by your computer.
Legislators have issued various retention periods and obligations. The corresponding data is routinely deleted after the expiry of these periods. Should data not be affected by the statutory retention periods and obligations, they will be deleted and made anonymous, provided that the purposes stated in this data protection declaration no longer apply. If no other provisions regarding the duration of data storage arise from this data protection declaration, the data collected by us will be stored for as long as they are necessary for the above purposes for which they were collected.
Further processing or use of your personal data will only occur if this is permitted by a legal regulation or if you have agreed to the data processing or use. If further processing takes place for a different purpose than the one for which the data was originally collected, you will be informed about the other purposes before further processing occurs and will receive the other relevant information.
We shall retain information, in particular your IP address, for a maximum of 14 days for the purpose of detecting and tracking abuse. The legal reason for this is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The data retention period of 14 days is based on our legitimate interest in maintaining the proper performance of our website and the transactions conducted via it, as well as to be able to defend against cyber-attacks and similar. We may use anonymous usage information to customise our website.

You have the right to demand the restriction of processing free of charge if the conditions are met according to Art. 18 GDPR. The restriction of processing can be required in cases where the processing is irregular and the data subject refuses the deletion of the personal data and instead demands the restriction of the use of the personal data. Furthermore, the restriction of processing might be required in the event that the data subject has objected to the processing according to Article 21(1) of the GDPR and it has not yet been confirmed whether our legitimate grounds for the processing are overriding your grounds. To demand the restriction of processing, please contact us by post or email at the addresses below.
Furthermore, you are entitled to data portability in accordance with Art. 20 GDPR.
