What are cookies?
Cookies are items of textual information that a website transmits via the user’s Internet browser to the requesting computer. With the help of a cookie, the web server and the user’s Internet browser will be able to recognize each other later. This allows personal settings and special services to always be immediately available again at a later point.
Necessary cookies: These cookies make a significant contribution to improving online shopping and your shopping experience. Basic functions and applications such as shopping carts or electronic billing procedures are thereby optimised and their handling is facilitated. These cookies do not collect information about you that can be used for marketing or statistical analysis.
Performance cookies: Performance cookies are used to collect anonymous statistical data on how websites are used and where errors occur. They are supplemented by anonymised general data, such as visitor demographic or reach information. These cookies make a significant contribution to keeping our Internet presence as performance-oriented as possible and make it possible to detect any errors or weaknesses.
Advertising cookies: These cookies support advertisements, the content of which is relevant to the user’s interests. They are usually used by marketing networks with the consent of the operator and recognize visitors on different websites of the participating organisations. These cookies are also used for third party services and provide data. We use targeted or advertising cookies to connect to, for example, Facebook, in order to measure the effectiveness of our online and offline advertising.
Re-targeting cookies: Our websites use so-called re-targeting technologies. We use these technologies to make our Internet presence more interesting. This technology makes it possible to appeal to Internet users who are already interested in our shop and our products with advertising on the websites of our partners. We are convinced that the display of personalised advertising that appeals to the Internet user’s interests is generally more interesting to the user than advertising that has no such personal connection. The insertion of this advertising material on the pages of our partners is based on a cookie technology and an analysis of the previous usage behaviour of the user. This form of advertising occurs on an entirely pseudonymous basis. No user profiles are combined with your personal data. By using our site, you consent to the use of so-called cookies and thus to collect, store and use your usage data. Furthermore, your data will be stored in cookies beyond the end of the browser session and, for example, retrieved on your next visit to the website. You may revoke your consent at any time with future effect by refusing to accept cookies in your browser settings (http://www.criteo.com/privacy/).
You can configure your browser to store cookies only with your permission. If you only want to accept Michaelis cookies but no cookies from partners, please select «Block third-party cookies” in your browser settings. The help function of your web browser, which you can select in the menu bar, will show you how to configure your browser so as to reject new cookies and how to disable existing cookies. We recommend that you always log out completely from shared computers that accept cookies and so-called flash cookies.
The data that you enter into our website for the purpose of carrying out a hotel or restaurant reservation will be transmitted encrypted to us (via HTTPS). This data, the type and scope of which result from the corresponding input mask of the online booking engine we use, is collected, processed and used solely for the purpose of justification, execution and processing of the contractual relationship established once you make a reservation.
This website also uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. based in Mountain View, United States ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", which are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there.
The IP anonymisation provided by Google (so-called IP masking) is activated on this website (by extension of Google Analytics with the code "gat._anonymizeIp ();"), as a result of which, your IP address will be abbreviated beforehand and thus anonymised by Google within the European Union or other states that are parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there.
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use the information collected by Google Analytics to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and Internet usage to the website operator. The IP address provided by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by Google Analytics by configuring your browser software accordingly. Please note, however, that if you do this, then you may not be able to use all the features of this website fully. In addition, you can prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by clicking on the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=deDownload) and downloading and installing the available browser plugin.
Furthermore, you can prevent Google Analytics from recording your use of the website by setting an opt-out cookie that prevents the future collection of your data when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie is placed when you click on the following link: place opt-out cookie.
The operator of this website also uses Google Analytics to analyse data from AdWords and the double-click cookie for statistical purposes. If you do not want this to occur, you can disable it through the Ads Preferences Manager (http://www.google.com/settings/ads?hl=en).
When contacting us, the provider of the website, for example, via contact form or e-mail, your details will be stored for the purpose of processing the request as well as in case of follow-up questions.
The personal data that you provide us in the context of this contact request will only be used to answer your inquiry or contact request and for the associated technical administration. No transfer of data to third parties takes place.
You have the right to revoke your consent with effect for the future at any time. In this case, your personal data will be deleted immediately.
Your personal data will also be deleted without your revocation once we have processed your request or if you revoke your herewith granted consent for storage. Your personal data will also be deleted if the storage of the data is impermissible for other legal reasons.
You can inform yourself about the data stored about your person at any time.
Integration of third-party services and content (e.g., YouTube and Google Maps)
The content of third parties, such as videos from YouTube and map material from Google Maps (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers"), is embedded in our website. In order to use this content, the transmission of the IP address of the user to the respective third-party provider is technically necessary. The reason for this is that without the IP address, the third-party providers could not send the content embedded in the website to the browser of the respective user. We have no control over whether a third party provider stores the IP address for statistical purposes, for example, or uses it in some other way.
Use of Facebook social plugins
This website uses social plugins (hereafter referred to as "plugins") of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94304, United States (hereinafter referred to as "Facebook"). The plugins are recognizable by one of the Facebook logos (a white "f" on a blue tile or a "thumbs up" symbol) or are marked with the additional text "Facebook Social Plugin". The list and appearance of Facebook social plugins can be viewed here https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
Whenever a user visits a page on this website that contains this plug-in, the user’s browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to the user's browser, which embeds it into the website. The provider therefore has no influence on the quantity of data that Facebook collects using this plugin. According to the current state of knowledge of the provider, Facebook proceeds as follows:
Once the plugin is embedded, Facebook receives a notification that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the provider's website. If the user is logged into Facebook, then Facebook can attribute the visit to the user’s Facebook account. When users interact with the plugins, for example press the so-called «like button” or leave a comment, the corresponding information from the user's browser is transmitted directly to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, then it is still possible that Facebook will find out and save their IP address. According to Facebook, in Germany only an anonymised IP address is stored.
If a user is a member of Facebook and does not want Facebook to collect data about him or her via the provider's website and to associate it with his or her member data that is stored on Facebook, then the user must log out of Facebook before visiting the website.
It is also possible to block Facebook social plugins with add-ons for the user's browser, for example with the "Facebook Blocker".
+1 button from Google+
This website uses the "+1" button on the Google Plus social network operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google"). The button is recognizable by the sign "+1" on a white or coloured background.
Whenever a user views a page on this website that contains this button, the browser establishes a direct connection to Google's servers. The content of the "+1" button is transmitted by Google directly to the user's browser, which embeds it in the website. The provider therefore has no influence on the amount of data that Google collects with the button. According to Google, no personal information is collected if the user does not click on the "+1" button. Google only collects and processes personally identifiable information, such as the IP address, of logged-in Google+ members.
Users can find out more about the purpose and scope of data collection and how Google further processes and uses the data, as well as privacy settings in Google's privacy information regarding the "+1" button at http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners and in the FAQs at http://www.google.com/button/.
Use of Instagram social plugins
This website uses Instagram plugins operated by Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, United States («Instagram”). The plugins are marked with an Instagram logo, for example in the form of the «Instagram camera”.
Whenever a user views a page on this website that contains this button, the browser establishes a direct connection to Instagram's servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Instagram directly to the user's browser and embedded into the website. In this way, Instagram receives a notification that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have an Instagram profile or are currently not logged into Instagram. This information (including your IP address) is sent from your browser directly to an Instagram server in the US and stored there.
If you are logged into Instagram, Instagram can instantly associate your visit to our website with your Instagram account. If you interact with the plugins, for example, by clicking on the "Instagram" button, then this information is also transmitted directly to an Instagram server and stored there. The information will also be posted on your Instagram account and displayed there to your contacts.
If you do not want Instagram to directly map the data collected through our website to your Instagram account, then you must first log out of Instagram before visiting our website. You can also completely prevent Instagram plugins from loading using add-ons for your browser, for example with the script blocker "NoScript" (http://noscript.net/).
Minors may not submit personal information to us without the consent of a guardian. In general, we do not collect, process and use any knowingly obtained personal data of minors on or in association with our website.
