Please do not hesitate to contact our Data Protection Officer in case of questions about processing of your personal data:

Data Protection Officer
You may contact us through forms or via email. We will process your data in order to reply to you. Therein also lies our legitimate interest for data processing. Legal basis for this processing activity is our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR).
When accessing our website, we will process data in server log files. This data derives from your terminal equipment and may include personal data. In particular, we process the following data:
- The operating system of your terminal equipment
- The browser used by you
- The name of your provider
- Your IP address
- Data and time of access
- Accesses pages and search terms (if applicable)
- The website that referred you to our website (referrer)
This processing activity is necessary to ensure the operation of our website, to optimise the content and deliverability of our website, and to provide the necessary information to public bodies in case of a cyber attack. Therein also lies our legitimate interest for data processing. Legal basis for this processing activity is our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR). We regularly delete this data after 14 days, in case of misuse after administrative or legal proceedings are finished.
For the purpose of "analytics and personalisation - tracking", we work with technology providers (as data processors) with whom a transfer of your personal data to the United States cannot be ruled out.
Likewise, for the purpose of "(Re-)Marketing / data sharing with third parties", we work with partners with whom a transfer of your personal data to the United States cannot be ruled out.
Where possible, we instruct our technology providers to process your personal data in data centres within the European Union.
However, in the case of technology providers or partners who also have an establishment in the United States or are located there with other companies of their group of companies, we cannot rule out the possibility of US security services gaining access to your personal data. This may occur, for example, via remote access or a legally binding instruction to our technology provider or partner. In particular, this may expose you to the risk that US security services may access your personal data without specific cause and on a large scale basis, and that you may not be able to take effective legal action against that in the United States.
Providing our website
Our legitimate interest for these processing activities lies in the uninterrupted usability of our website and in ensuring that user interactions are actually linked to an authenticated user. Legal basis for this processing activity is our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR.
Analytics and personalisation - Tracking
We use the following products for analytics and personalisation:
(Re-)Marketing / data sharing with third parties
In addition, we group the users of our website in so-called audiences. Audiences are user groups that are put together by us according to certain criteria (e.g. all users who have accessed a category of recipes). If the users of an audience are also users of our marketing partners, we can individually address these users with advertisements (re-marketing) through our marketing partner’s platform.. Information that our marketing partner has about his users in one of our audiences can also be used by him to suggest similar user groups to us for advertising.
To this end, we inform our marketing partners that you have visited our website and whether you have visited pages defined by us or have carried out other actions (e.g. registered an account). Our marketing partners may also use this information for their own purposes, for example to further personalise your profile on their own platform. Legal basis for this processing activity is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 a) GDPR . You may withdraw or change your consent for future processing at any time by changing your tracking settings. Additionally, you may change your browser settings regarding cookies and similar technologies. Our marketing partners are separate controllers for the data processing that they carry out for their own purposes. The marketing partner also provides you with data protection information.
We use the following products for (re-)marketing and share data with the following third parties
If processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 a) GDPR) you may withdraw your consent for future processing at any time. You may reach us through the contact data that is provided in the "Controller" section or use options for withdrawal of consent that are described in the context of a specific processing activity.
If processing is based on our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR) you have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data that concerns you. This also extends to profiling. Where we process personal data for marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data that concerns you for such marketing. This also extends to profiling that is related to such direct marketing.
With regard to personal data that concerns you, you may also use the following rights:
● Right to access (Art. 15 GDPR)
● Right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR)
● Right to erasure (‘right to be forgotten’) (Art. 17 GDPR)
● Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR)
● Right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR)
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority (Art. 77 GDPR).
Automated individual decision-making, including profiling, does not take place.
