(4) Coo­kies

We use coo­kies on our web­site. Coo­kies are small files which are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly crea­ted by your brow­ser and stored on your device (lap­top, tablet, smart­phone or the like), coo­kies cau­se no harm to your device, do not con­tain viru­s­es, troyans or other mal­wa­re. Coo­kies do not cau­se any harm to your end device, do not con­tain viru­s­es, tro­jans, or other mal­wa­re. In the coo­kie, infor­ma­ti­on is stored which ari­ses from the con­text with the spe­ci­fi­cal­ly used device from time to time. Howe­ver, this does not pro­vi­de us with imme­dia­te know­ledge of your identity.

On the one hand, the use of coo­kies ser­ves to make our offer more con­ve­ni­ent for you. We the­r­e­fo­re use so cal­led ses­si­on coo­kies to iden­ti­fy that you have alre­a­dy visi­ted indi­vi­du­al pages of our web­site. They are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly era­sed when you lea­ve our website.

To opti­mi­ze user-fri­end­li­ne­ss, we fur­ther­mo­re use tem­po­ra­ry coo­kies which are stored on your device for a par­ti­cu­lar defi­ned peri­od. If you revi­sit our site to use our ser­vices, it is auto­ma­ti­cal­ly reco­gni­zed that you have alre­a­dy visi­ted us and which ent­ries and set­tings you have made, so you do not have to make the same ent­ries again.

On the other hand, we use coo­kies to record sta­tis­tics of the use of our web­site and to ana­ly­ze them in order to opti­mi­ze our offer for you (see item 5). The­se coo­kies enable us to auto­ma­ti­cal­ly iden­ti­fy that you have alre­a­dy visi­ted us when you revi­sit our web­site. The­se coo­kies are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly era­sed after a defi­ned peri­od from time to time. The data pro­ces­sed by coo­kies is neces­sa­ry for the afo­re­men­tio­ned pur­po­ses, and for guar­ding our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests and tho­se of third par­ties in accordance with Art. 6 para­graph 1 sen­tence 1 point (f) GDPR. Most brow­sers accept coo­kies auto­ma­ti­cal­ly. You can, howe­ver, con­fi­gu­re your brow­ser in a way that it does not store any coo­kies on your com­pu­ter, or that a prompt is always dis­play­ed befo­re a new coo­kie is crea­ted. If you deac­ti­va­te coo­kies com­ple­te­ly, you may, howe­ver, not be able to use all func­tions of our website.

(5) Ana­ly­sis tools: Track­ing tools

The track­ing mea­su­res used by us which are lis­ted below are imple­men­ted in accordance with Art. 6 para­graph 1 sen­tence 1 (f) GDPR. The track­ing mea­su­res used by us ser­ve to ensu­re a needs-based orga­niza­ti­on and con­ti­nuous opti­miza­ti­on of our web­site. On the other hand, we use track­ing mea­su­res to record sta­tis­tics of the use of our web­site and to ana­ly­ze them in order to opti­mi­ze our offer for you. The­se inte­rests are to be regard­ed as legi­ti­ma­te within the mea­ning of the afo­re­men­tio­ned pro­vi­si­on. The respec­ti­ve data cate­go­ries and pur­po­ses of data hand­ling is indi­ca­ted by the respec­ti­ve track­ing tools.

(6) Goog­le Analytics

For the pur­po­se of needs-based orga­niza­ti­on and con­ti­nuous opti­miza­ti­on of our web­site, we use Goog­le Ana­ly­tics, a web ana­ly­sis ser­vice by Goog­le Inc. ( intl/de/about/) (1600 Amphi­theat­re Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043, USA; her­ein­af­ter refer­red to as “Goog­le”). In this con­text, pseud­ony­mi­zed usa­ge pro­files are crea­ted and coo­kies (see item 4) are used. Infor­ma­ti­on on your usa­ge of the web­site crea­ted by the coo­kie, such as

  • brow­ser type/version,
  • ope­ra­ti­on sys­tem used,
  • refer­rer URL (the web­site you visi­ted before),
  • host name of the acces­sing com­pu­ter (IP address),
  • time of the ser­ver request,

is sent to a Goog­le ser­ver in the USA, whe­re it is stored. The infor­ma­ti­on is used to ana­ly­ze the use of the web­site to com­pi­le reports on web­site acti­vi­ty and to pro­vi­de fur­ther ser­vices con­nec­ted to web­site and inter­net usa­ge for mar­ket rese­arch pur­po­ses and needs-based orga­niza­ti­on of the­se web­sites. This infor­ma­ti­on may also be han­ded to third par­ties whe­re this is legal­ly requi­red, or whe­re third par­ties pro­cess this data on behalf of Goog­le. Goog­le will in no case con­nect your IP address with other data retrie­ved by Goog­le. The IP addres­ses are anony­mi­zed so that the user can­not be iden­ti­fied (IP masking).

You can pre­vent the instal­la­ti­on of coo­kies by making respec­ti­ve adjus­t­ments to your brow­ser soft­ware; howe­ver, plea­se note that in this case you may not be able to use all func­tions of the web­site to their full ext­ent. You can fur­ther­mo­re pre­vent the coll­ec­tion of the data crea­ted by the coo­kie and rela­ted to your use of the web­site (inclu­ding your IP address) and its pro­ces­sing by Goog­le by down­loa­ding and instal­ling the brow­ser add-on available under ( As an alter­na­ti­ve to the brow­ser add-on, espe­ci­al­ly for brow­sers on mobi­le devices, coll­ec­tion by Goog­le Ana­ly­tics can also be pre­ven­ted by cli­cking on this link. The web­site will set an opt-out coo­kie on your com­pu­ter, which will pre­vent any fur­ther data coll­ec­tion when you visit the web­site. The opt-out coo­kie only appli­es to this very brow­ser and only to our web­site and is stored on your device. If you dele­te the coo­kies in this brow­ser, you have to set the opt-out coo­kie again. For fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on on data pro­tec­tion in con­nec­tion with Goog­le Ana­ly­tics, plea­se refer to the Goog­le Ana­ly­tics Help (

(7) Goog­le Web Fonts

To dis­play fonts, this web­site par­ti­al­ly uses so-cal­led Web Fonts which are pro­vi­ded by Goog­le. When you open a page, your brow­ser will load the requi­red web fonts in your brow­ser cache. The down­loa­ded fonts are then used for font display.

For this pur­po­se, the brow­ser soft­ware used by you must estab­lish a con­nec­tion to Google’s ser­vers. In doing so, Goog­le will get to know your IP and that you have ope­ned our web­site. Goog­le Web Fonts are used in the inte­rest of a uni­form and appe­al­ing lay­out of our online offers. This is con­side­red a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest within the mea­ning of Art. 6 para­graph 1 (f) DSGVO.

If your brow­ser does not sup­port web fonts, this web­site will be dis­play­ed in your computer’s default font.

For fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on about Goog­le Web Fonts, plea­se refer to the Goog­le Fonts FAQ and to Google’s Pri­va­cy poli­cy.

(8) Social Media Icons

On this web­site, social media icons of Face­book, Goog­le+, Twit­ter, and XING (her­ein­af­ter refer­red to as: “social net­works”) are gra­phi­cal­ly embedded. The gra­phics are mark­ed by the logo of the cor­re­spon­ding social network.

Due to the gra­phi­cal incor­po­ra­ti­on of icons, ope­ning our web­site does not direct­ly result in a direct, fast con­nec­tion to the ser­vers of the respec­ti­ve social net­work. The icon con­tent is not direct­ly trans­mit­ted from the social net­work to your brow­ser so that your brow­ser does not incor­po­ra­te it direct­ly into the website.

By cli­cking on an icon, you are redi­rec­ted to the PLANTA pro­fi­le in the respec­ti­ve social net­work. We have no influence on the amount of data the respec­ti­ve social net­work coll­ects, pro­ces­ses, or uses when you visit our PLANTA pro­fi­le. To learn more about the pur­po­se and ext­ent of data coll­ec­tion, the pro­ces­sing and use of your data by the respec­ti­ve social net­work, as well as your rights and set­ting opti­ons for the pro­tec­tion of your pri­va­cy, plea­se refer to the pri­va­cy poli­cy state­ment of the respec­ti­ve social net­work. For the Face­book pri­va­cy poli­cy state­ment, see Face­book Data Use Poli­cy, for Twit­ter, see Twit­ter Pri­va­cy Poli­cy, for XING, see XING Pri­va­cy Poli­cy and for Lin­ke­dIn, see Lin­ke­dIn Pri­va­cy Poli­cy.
