So-called “social plug-ins” are used on our website to raise awareness of our company pursuant to Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. We currently use plug-ins from Facebook and Pinterest. Data, including personal data, may be sent via these plug-ins to service providers in the USA and potentially used by these service providers.
bulthaup does not collect any personal data via the social plug-ins or any personal data about the use of plug-ins. A program prevents data from being transmitted to the service provider in the USA without the user’s knowledge. This solution ensures that for the moment, no personal data is transferred to the provider of the social plug-in when you visit bulthaup’s websites. Data can only be transmitted to the service provider and stored there if you click on one of the social plug-ins.
The service provider then receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding sub-page of our website. This happens regardless of whether you have an account with the service provider and whether you are logged in. If you are logged in to the service provider this will be directly assigned to your account. If you click on one of the social plug-ins and, for example, link this website, the service provider will also store this information in your user account and publicly share this association.
If you do not wish this assignment to your profile with the service provider you must log out before clicking on one of the social plug-ins.

a) Facebook Inc., 1601 S California Ave, Palo Alto, California 94304, USA

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider of this service is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
Google Analytics enables the website operator to analyze the behavior patterns of website visitors.

Our websites also use the functions of Google Analytics remarketing in conjunction with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. These are provided by Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, California 94043, USA.
This function enables advertising target groups created by Google Analytics remarketing to be linked with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. Accordingly, interest-related and personalized adverts are shown, which have been adapted in accordance with your previous usage behavior and surfing habits on one device (e.g. cellphone) and also shown on another of your devices (e.g. tablet or PC).
If you have provided the appropriate consent, Google will link your web and app browser histories with your Google account. This allows every device which you log in to with your Google account to have the same personalized adverts shown.
To support this function, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated user IDs, which are temporarily linked to your Google Analytics data to define and create target groups for cross-device advertising.
You can permanently object to cross-device remarketing/targeting by deactivating personalized advertising in your Google account. Please visit the following to do so: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.
A potential summary of the data collected in your Google account is only carried out on the basis of your consent, which you can provide to or withdraw from Google (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR).
This website uses the open source web analytics service Matomo.
With the help of Matomo, we are able to collect and analyse data about the use of our website by website visitors. This enables us to find out, among other things, when which page views were made and from which region they came. We also collect various log files (e.g. IP address, referrer, browsers and operating systems used) and can measure whether our website visitors perform certain actions (e.g. clicks, purchases, etc.).
The use of this analysis tool is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising. If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user's terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) as defined by the TTDSG. The consent can be revoked at any time.
We use IP anonymisation for the analysis with Matomo. This means that your IP address is shortened before analysis so that it can no longer be clearly assigned to you.
We have configured Matomo in such a way that it does not save any cookies in your browser.
We host Matomo exclusively on our own servers so that all analysis data remains with us and is not passed on.
