We use so-called cookies on various pages in order to make visits to our site attractive and enable the use of certain functions. These are small text files that are stored on your terminal device. Some of the cookies we use are erased again after the end of the browser session, i.e. after your browser is closed (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your terminal device and enable us to recognize your browser on your next visit (persistent cookies). You can configure your browser in such a way that you will be informed when cookies are placed and are able to decide on their acceptance individually or can generally exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases. If cookies are not accepted, the functionality of our website may be limited.
In the following, you will find information on the cookies we use and the configuration option of your browser.
1. Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are necessary in order to enable operation of our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to login to the customer area or place goods into the shopping cart.
2. Analytic / performance cookies
These cookies make it possible to collect anonymized data about the user behavior of our visitors. We then analyze these in order to, for example, improve the functionality of the website and show you interesting offers.
3. Functional cookies
These cookies are used for certain functionalities, for example, to suggest better navigation flow on our website to you and to show you personalized and relevant information (e.g. “interest-based advertising”).
4. Targeting cookies
These cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links that led you to them. We will use this information to tailor our website and the advertising shown to you to your interests.
5. Third-party cookies
These cookies of some of our advertising partners help to design what is offered on the Internet and our website to better suit your interests. Therefore, cookies of partner companies are also stored on your hard disk when you visit our website. These are temporary cookies that will be erased automatically after the specified time. Cookies of partner companies are generally erased after a few days or up to 24 months, after several years as well in individual cases.

Use of SSL encryption
Dr. Grandel needs your personal data for various business transactions. For example, during the login process to your customer center, sensitive data has to be transmitted to our servers. We encrypt your personal data during the login process by using the SSL protocol (Secure Socket Layer protocol), so this data will not fall into the wrong hands. This is a tried and tested and very secure data transmission procedure on the Internet.
As a result of the use of the SSL protocol, your data is masked such that it cannot be reconstructed by a third party before it is transmitted to our server. In the context of this encryption procedure, measures are taken to ensure that your data is exclusively sent to the server from which it was requested. When the data reaches our server, it is conclusively checked to make sure it is complete and unaltered.
Use of Google (Universal) Analytics for Web analysis
This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics, a Web analysis service of Google Inc. (www.google.de). Google (Universal) Analytics uses methods that permit an analysis of your use of the website, such as so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer. The information generated about your use of this website is usually transferred to a server of Google in the USA and stored there. As a result of the activation of IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be truncated by Google beforehand within Member States of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. The anonymized IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other data of Google.
Beyond that, you may prevent Google from recording the data generated by the cookie and pertaining to your use of the website (including your IP address) and processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
As an alternative to the browser plugin, you can click on this, to prevent data collection by Google Analytics on this website in the future. This will cause an opt-out cookie to be deposited on your device. If you erase your cookies, you will have to click on the link again.
Disclaimer for the content of external linked Internet sites
If you use external links that are offered in the context of our Internet sites, this data privacy statement does not cover these links or linked websites. If we offer links, we will make every effort to ensure that they also meet our data privacy and security standards. However, we have no way of influencing compliance with the data privacy and security provisions by other providers. Therefore, please visit the Internet sites of the other providers and acquaint yourself with the data privacy statements provided there as well. At the time the links were set up, we were not aware of any violation of provisions relating to data privacy law by linked websites.
Transfer of data for the purpose of performing an agreement
In order to perform an agreement, we transfer data to the shipping company commissioned with delivery of the goods insofar as necessary to deliver the goods ordered. Depending on the payment service provider you selected in the ordering process, we transfer the payment data collected for this purpose to the bank commissioned with the payment and/or any payment service providers we may have commissioned and/or to the payment service provider selected for the purpose of payment processing. The selected payment service providers also collect some of this data themselves if you open an account with them. In this case, you must register with the payment service provider by using your login data in the ordering process. The data privacy statement of the corresponding payment service provider applies in this respect.
No transfer of personal data to third parties beyond the foregoing will take place without your consent. However, we are authorized to provide information about your data to responsible authorities in individual cases, insofar as they request your data for the purpose of exercising statutory powers (e.g. criminal prosecution). Your collected personal data will not be sold to third parties in any case.
As we take the protection of your data seriously, we protect our website and other systems by technical and organizational measures against loss, destruction, access, alteration or dissemination of your data by unauthorized persons. However, despite regular checks, full protection against all risks is not possible.
