1. Usage data

Every time you access a page and retrieve a file, this process automatically saves general data to a log file. The storage is exclusively system-related and is purely for statistical purposes or to report criminal offences in exceptional circumstances.

GRENKE uses this data to improve their websites and to present content tailored to your interests on various sites on the internet and on multiple devices. As part of this process, usage data is not merged with personal information. Should you decide to provide us with personal information, this information will be backed up securely during the entry process. The same applies to the storage in our system. For security reasons, GRENKE stores your IP address. This can be accessed in case of a legitimate interest.

GRENKE does not save your browser history. A transfer of data to third parties or any other evaluation does not take place, unless there is a legal obligation to do so.

In detail, the following data record is saved for each access:

  • Device used
  • Name of the accessed file
  • Date and time of access
  • Time zone
  • Transferred data volume
  • Report as to whether the access was successful

2. Use of cookies

In order to make your visit to the GRENKE websites more pleasant and to enable the use of certain functions, GRENKE uses so-called cookies on various sites. These are small text files that are stored on your device. Some of the cookies GRENKE uses are deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your device and allow GRENKE or GRENKE's affiliates to recognise your browser on your next visit (so-called persistent cookies).

Cookies cannot access other files on your computer or identify your email address.

Like most websites you visit, GRENKE websites also use cookies to improve the user experience on both one-time and repeated website visits. This allows you to quickly and easily switch between sites, save your configurations, and use third-party tools (such as YouTube videos) on the website.

Cookies are either placed on the GRENKE website (first party cookies) or on other websites whose content appears on the GRENKE website (third-party cookies). These third-party providers (such as Facebook) may set cookies if you are logged in to their pages and visit the GRENKE website. GRENKE has no influence on the cookie settings of these websites. Please visit the third-party websites for more information on their use of cookies.

The essential, functional and statistical cookies are stored for the optimisation and needs-based design of the GRENKE website.

Cookies are stored for marketing purposes on the basis of the user's consent. These cookies are therefore only set if the user agrees to the storage by issuing their consent to the cookie notification on the website.

The setting you choose on the first visit in response to the cookie notification will be saved. The selected settings can be adjusted in the privacy settings at any time.

4. Use of Eloqua

GRENKE uses the Eloqua service to collect statistical data about the use of the GRENKE website, to send GRENKE newsletters and to optimize GRENKE's services accordingly. The Eloqua servers of the supplier ORACLE Nederland B.V., Hertogswetering 163, 3543 AS Utrecht, P.O. Box 40387, 3504 AD Utrecht, Netherlands are located in the EU.

If you have consented to the use of cookies for marketing purposes, Eloqua will use cookies that are stored on your computer and that enable an analysis of the use of the website (hereinafter referred to as usage behavior). If you have already used a website that uses Eloqua, you may already have an Eloqua cookie. Even if this cookie is set on other websites, the information from your visit to the GRENKE websites is only visible to us and is not shared with Oracle or any other users of the Eloqua system. It is also not possible for us to use this cookie to record or view information about your visits to any other websites.

If you enter personal information (e.g. in the contact form) during your visit to the website, this information will be processed with the usage behaviour in order to offer you content on the website and in our newsletter that is geared to your interests, as well as to be able to send you news and information about our company or our range of services based on your personal information, which are geared to your individual interests.

5. Integration of social media plug-ins

GRENKE currently uses the following social media plug-ins: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn.

When you visit a page that contains such a plug-in, the browser will connect to the social media providers' servers and provide the information that you have accessed the corresponding sub-page of the GRENKE website. In addition, the data referred to in paragraph 1 of this Cookie Policy will be transmitted, whereby in the case of Facebook, according to the respective providers in Germany, only an anonymous IP is recorded. This happens regardless of whether you have an account with this plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in to the plug-in provider, this data will be assigned directly to your account. If you click the button, the plug-in provider also stores this information in your user account and informs your contacts publicly. If you do not want your profile to be linked with the plug-in provider, you must log out before clicking the button. 

The plug-in provider stores this data as usage profiles and uses it for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or tailored website design. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for non-logged-in users) to present needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on the GRENKE website. You have a right to object to the formation of these user profiles; you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise them.

For more information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the privacy statements of these providers, which can be found below. You will also find further information about your rights and settings options to protect your privacy here.
