Cookies” are small files that are stored on the user’s computer. Different information can be stored within the cookies. A cookie is primarily used to store information about a user (or the device on which the cookie is stored) during or after his visit to an online offer. Temporary cookies, or “session cookies” or “transient cookies”, are cookies that are deleted after a user leaves an online offer and closes his browser. In such a cookie, for example, the contents of a shopping cart in an online shop or a login jam can be stored. Cookies are described as “permanent” or “persistent” if they remain stored even after the browser is closed. For example, the login status can be saved if the user visits it after several days. Likewise, the interests of the users can be stored in such a cookie, which are used for range measurement or marketing purposes. Third-party cookies” are cookies that are offered by providers other than the person responsible for operating the online service (otherwise, if they are only the cookies of this person, they are called “first-party cookies”).

We may use temporary and permanent cookies and provide information about this in our privacy policy.

If users do not want cookies to be stored on their computer, they are asked to deactivate the corresponding option in the system settings of their browser. Stored cookies can be deleted in the system settings of the browser. The exclusion of cookies can lead to functional limitations of this online offer.

If the data are not deleted because they are required for other and legally permissible purposes, their processing will be restricted. This means that the data is blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be retained for commercial or tax law reasons.

Range measurement with Google Analytics

On the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO) we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google LLC (“Google”). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the website by the user is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google is certified under the Privacy-Shield-Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with the European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online offer by users, to compile reports on the activities within this online offer and to provide us with further services associated with the use of this online offer and the use of the Internet. The processed data can be used to create pseudonymous user profiles of the users.

We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymisation. This means that the IP address of the user is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser is not merged with other Google data. Users may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on their browser software. Furthermore, users may refuse the transfer of data generated by the cookie and relating to their use of the website to Google and prevent Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

online presence in social media

We maintain online presences within social networks and platforms in order to be able to communicate with the customers, interested parties and users active there and to inform them about our services. When calling up the respective networks and platforms, the terms and conditions and data processing guidelines of their respective operators apply.

Unless otherwise stated in our privacy policy, we process the data of users who communicate with us within the social networks and platforms, e.g. write articles on our online presences or send us messages.

Integration of services and contents of third parties

We set within our online offer on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO), we use content or service offers from third parties in order to integrate their content and services, such as videos or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as “content”).

This always presupposes that the third-party providers of such content are aware of the IP address of the users, as without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to their browsers. The IP address is therefore required to display this content. We make every effort to use only such content whose respective providers use the IP address only to deliver the content. Third party providers may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. Pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and may contain technical information on the browser and operating system, referring web pages, visiting time and other details on the use of our online offer, as well as being linked to such information from other sources.

Youtube

We integrate the videos from the “YouTube” platform of the provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Privacy policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/, Opt-Out: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated.

If users are members of the Instagram platform, Instagram may associate the access to the above content and features with the user’s profile.

Chatting on LiveZilla

We use components from LiveZilla GmbH, Ekkehardstrasse 10, 78224 Singen on our site. Each time our site is accessed, this component collects and stores data for web analysis and for the operation of the live chat system, from which user profiles can then be created by using cookies under a pseudonym. These user profiles can be used to analyse visitor behaviour and to operate the live chat system and can be evaluated to improve and tailor our Internet offering to meet the needs of our customers.

Integration of services and content from OUTTRA

We use the component OUTTRA from 81 MEDIA GmbH, Ziegelbrennerstr. 5, 73074 Stuttgart, Germany, for the function of retrieving the availability of goods. To display this function, the component must query the IP address of the visitor. The component initially uses the IP address solely to send the browser or visitor the appropriate information. The IP address is therefore required for the display of this function.
When clicking on an offer, the user is redirected to the respective shop. The IP address is saved. After 24 hours this IP address is anonymized.

In order to display the availability of the product selected by the visitor via the “Local Offers” function, GEO coordination or a postcode entered by the visitor is transmitted to the OUTTRA server and processed.

For the “Notification” function, the visitor enters his e-mail address in the system, which is processed by OUTTRA. This function works according to the double opt-in procedure. It is possible to unsubscribe at any time via any of the notification e-mails. The e-mail address will be deleted in the process.

Hi! It’s me, the Harlerunner.

This is where Thomas Pier writes about running and (much more than just the necessary) equipment. I don't run particularly fast or far. But I like to share my experiences as an ambitious recreational runner, curious early-adopter and as my own trainer.

I am happy about every digital contacting - but even more so about every kilometer run together.
