Cookies & Social-Media
Cookies are small text files that are sent when a website is visited and stored in the browser of the user device. If the corresponding website is called up again, the browser sends back the content of the cookies and thus enables recognition of the user device. Certain cookies are automatically deleted at the end of the browser session (so-called session cookies), others are stored for a specified time or permanently in the browser of the user device and then delete themselves automatically (so-called temporary or permanent cookies).
As a rule, cookies do not store any data that makes you directly identifiable as a person (e.g., no names, e-mail addresses or IP addresses). Instead, cookies typically contain a code (so-called identifier) as well as information on the storage period and possibly also certain technical features (e.g. security functions).
We use technically necessary cookies on our website. The use of technically necessary cookies and similar technologies is absolutely necessary in order to provide the website you have accessed properly and securely with the functionalities typical for this service.
These technologies are used, for example, to enable basic website functions or to provide you with multimedia content that meets the technical requirements of your terminal device.

Cookie name: cec-user-choosed-cookie-options
Cookie name: cec-function
Insofar as the data processed with the help of the technically necessary cookies used by us are to be regarded as personal in individual cases, the legitimate interest (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR) of CECONOMY AG in the operation of the website constitutes the legal basis for the processing of this data.
You cannot object to the use of technically necessary cookies. Without these cookies, our website cannot function. You can deactivate the use of technically necessary cookies only via the browser settings. Please note that in this case, the full functionality of the website may no longer be available to you.
We currently use the following social media plug-ins:
Social media plug-ins will only be loaded if you have previously activated the function by giving your consent. Via the plug-ins, we offer you the opportunity to interact with social networks and other users. The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 Para. 1 P. 1 lit. a GDPR, i.e. the integration only takes place after your consent.
The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as usage profiles and uses them for purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the display of tailored advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. The data transfer takes place regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in to the plug-in provider, your data collected from us will be directly assigned to your account with the plug-in provider. If you click the activated button and link to the page, for example, the plug-in provider also saves this information in your user account and shares it publicly with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as this allows you to avoid an assignment to your profile with the plug-in provider.
The information collected is stored on servers of the providers, in the case of international providers also outside Europe. For these cases, the provider has, according to its own information, imposed a standard on itself that corresponds to the former EU-US Privacy Shield and has promised to comply with applicable data protection laws in the international transfer of data. We have also agreed so-called standard data protection clauses with the providers, the purpose of which is to ensure compliance with an appropriate level of data protection in the third country.
The revocation of your consent is possible at any time without affecting the permissibility of the processing until the revocation. The easiest way to revoke your consent is via our consent manager or via the functions of the social media providers.
For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the data protection declarations of these providers provided below. There you will also receive further information about your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy. Addresses of the respective plug-in providers and URL of the respective privacy notices.
