We also provide a voluntary rating system for wines. If you use this function, we also collect and store your IP address to ensure smooth functionality. This, too, relates solely to information that does not enable you to be identified personally (i.e. not your name, address or e-mail address etc.).
This information is required for technical purposes so we can correctly deliver the website content you request and is essential for use of the Internet. It is processed for the following purposes in particular:
The basis for the processing of your personal data is our legitimate interest in data collection for the above purposes. We will not use your data to identify you personally. The only recipients of the data are the controller and any data processors that may be deployed.
We may use anonymous information of this type for statistical analysis to optimise our Internet offering and the technology behind it.
We comply with the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We will only store your personal data for such time as is necessary to achieve the purposes set out here or as provided for by the various storage periods set down in the legislation. After the respective purpose lapses or these periods expire, the corresponding data will be routinely blocked or erased in accordance with the statutory stipulations.
Like many other websites, we also use what are known as “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are transferred to your hard drive by a website server. This provides us with automatically specified data such as IP address, browser used, operating system and your connection to the Internet.
Cookies cannot be used to launch programs or transfer viruses to a computer. We can use the information contained in the cookies to make it easier for you to navigate the website and to display our web pages correctly.
Under no circumstances is the data we collect using cookies passed to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.

We embed YouTube videos on some of our web pages. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection to YouTube’s servers is created. YouTube will be informed about the pages you visit. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can attribute your surfing behaviour to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.
If you have deactivated the saving of cookies for the Google Ads program, you will also prevent such cookies being set when watching YouTube videos. However, YouTube stores also non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you need to block the saving of cookies in the browser.
