Privacy Policy

We are delighted that you are visiting our Website and appreciate your interest! As the protection of your private sphere when you use our Website is important to us, please note the information below on the treatment of your data:

1) Basic principles of the treatment of personal data

You can visit our Website without giving information about your person. Whenever you access our Website, data on use are transmitted by the Internet browser and stored in protocol files known as “server logfiles”: these data include the date and time of the access, the name of the page accessed, the volume of data transmitted, and the provider accessing the Website. These data cannot be associated with a specific person and are used solely to ensure that our Website operates smoothly and to improve our service.

Personal data are gathered if you communicate them to us voluntarily in the performance of a contract, e.g. when booking a table, placing an advance order or opening a customer account. Which data are gathered is evident from the particular input forms. You can cancel your customer account at any time by sending a message to the contact address stated below. We store and use the data communicated by you to perform the contract. After the full performance of the contract or deletion of your customer account your data are blocked in compliance with retention periods under tax law and commercial law, and are deleted at the end of these periods, unless you have explicitly consented to further use of your data or we have reserved a statutorily permitted further use of data, which we inform you about below.

Personal data are gathered when you contact us (e.g. with a contact form or by e-mail); which data are gathered in the event of a contact form is evident from the particular contact form. These data are stored and used solely to answer your request or to establish contact and for the associated technical administration. Your data are deleted after the complete processing of your enquiry, provided this is your wish and there are no statutory duties of retention preventing this deletion.

Furthermore, personal data are gathered when you register for our e-mail Newsletter. We use these data for our own advertising purposes in the form of our e-mail Newsletter, provided you have consented explicitly as follows: "I agree to your regularly sending me information on the following product range by e-mail: gift ideas, wine & spirits, chocolates & biscuits, coffee & tea and delicacies. I can revoke my consent vis-à-vis you at any time."

You can unsubscribe from the Newsletter at any time via the pertinent link in the Newsletter or by sending us a message to this effect. Once you have unregistered, your e-mail address is deleted promptly from our Newsletter mailing list.

We reserve the right to store your first name and last name, your postal address and – insofar as we have received these additional data from you under the contractual relationship – your title, academic degree, the year of your birth and your professional, sectoral or business title in lists compiled for our own advertising purposes, and to use those data to send you interesting offers and information on our products by post. You can refuse the storage and use of your data for this purpose at any time by sending a message to the contact address stated below.

 

2) Cookies

To make the visit to our Website attractive and enable the use of certain functions, we use what are called “cookies” on various pages. These are small text files placed on your device. Some of the cookies we use are deleted at the end of the browser session, i.e. once your browser is closed (“session cookies“). Other cookies remain on your device and enable us or our partner companies to recognize your browser on the next visit (persistent cookies). You can adjust your browser so that you can be informed of the setting of cookies and decide in each case on accepting them or accepting cookies for specific cases or exclude them in general. Not accepting cookies may limit the functionality of our Website.

 

3) The use of social plugins

On our Website we use social plugins ("plugins") of the social network Facebook operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The plugins feature a Facebook logo or the add-on "Soziales Plug-in von Facebook" or "Facebook Social Plugin". You can find an overview of Facebook plugins and what they look like here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins

When you access a page on our Website that contains such a plugin, your browser makes a direct link with the Facebook servers. The plugin’s content is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser and integrated in the page. This integration gives Facebook the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page on our Website, even if you do not have a Facebook profile or are not currently logged into Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is sent by your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA, where it is stored.

If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can associate the visit to our Website directly with your Facebook profile. If you interact with the plugins, e.g. click the "Like" button or post a comment, this information is likewise sent directly to a Facebook server, where it is stored. The information is also published on your Facebook profile and shown to your Facebook friends.

For the scope and purpose of the data collection and the further processing of the data by Facebook, as well as your rights in this respect and setting options to protect your private sphere, please refer to Facebook’s privacy policy: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php
If you do not wish Facebook to associate the data gathered via our Website directly with your Facebook profile, you have to log out of Facebook before visiting our Website. You can prevent any loading of Facebook plugins including add-ons for your browser, e.g. using the "Facebook Blocker" (http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/).

 

4) The use of YouTube videos

This Website uses the YouTube embedding function to show and play YouTube videos. This entails using the extended data protection mode, which according to the YouTube provider does not start storing user information until the video is/videos are played. If a user starts to play embedded YouTube videos, the “YouTube” provider uses cookies to gather information on user behaviour. According to “YouTube“, this information is used inter alia to draw up video statistics, to improve user-friendliness and to prevent improper conduct. Irrespective of whether the embedded videos are played, each time this Website is accessed a link to the Google network “DoubleClick” is established, and this can trigger off further data processing without our influence.
You can find more information on data protection with “YouTube” in the provider’s privacy policy at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/

 

5) The use of Google AdWords conversion tracking

This Website uses the online advertising program "Google AdWords" and Google AdWords conversion tracking. The cookie for conversion tracking is set when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. Cookies are small text files placed on your computer system. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user accesses certain pages on this Website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we realize that the user clicked on the ad and was forwarded to this page. Each Google AdWords client is given a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be tracked via AdWords clients’ Websites. The information gathered by means of conversion cookies is used to draw up conversion statistics for AdWords clients who opted for conversion tracking. The clients learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were forwarded to a page featuring a conversion tracking tag. They do not, however, receive any information that allows users to be identified in person. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can refuse this use by simply deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie via your Internet browser’s user settings. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
