Cookie Statement website HOBBYFIRST

v 20170831

The intention of this Cookie Statement is to inform you how Natural Granen collects your personal data using cookies and other tracking technologies when you visit our website.

Latest Cookie Statement update: 31.08.2017.

  • What are cookies and personal data?

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer (or on other devices with internet access, such as a smartphone or tablet) when you visit the HobbyFirst website. These text files store the following information: the name of the website from where the cookie originates, the ’shelf life’ of the cookie (in other words, how long the cookie will be stored on your computer/device) and a value, which usually consists of a randomly generated, unique number.

Some cookies can collect your personal data, that is, data that we know about you, as a user of the website.


  • How do we ask permission to place cookies?

When you visit the website, a banner will appear at the top of the page which informs you about the use of cookies on this website.  You can read all of the information related to these cookies in this Cookie Statement.

We do not require your permission to place cookies that are essential for providing you with a service or for performing a function you request. These are the session cookies under Section 3.1 and the permanent ‘cookie bar’ cookie under Section 3.2

In the case of the other analytical cookies, we assume your implicit consent for their use. If you continue to browse the website, we consider this action as your agreement to placing cookies on your device. If you do not want cookies on your device, read Section 4 below: ‘How can you manage or remove cookies?’

What types of cookies do we use?

Session cookies

Session cookies are temporary functional cookies that remain on your computer/device until you leave the HobbyFirst website again. These cookies are essential, because the website or the service you have requested cannot function or will not function properly without the use of these cookies. Every time you visit our website, these cookies contain a different, temporary number. The cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser.

We do not need your permission for these session cookies, because they are necessary to provide you with the various functions of our website. These cookies have a minimal impact on your privacy.

Permanent cookies

This type of cookie remains on your computer longer than a session cookie or until it is manually deleted. (The length of time the cookie remains on your device depends on the ’shelf life’ of the specific cookie and on your browser settings.) By using these types of cookies, we can recognise you the next time you visit our website. This allows the website to be specifically adapted to your preferences. For example, if you have agreed to the placement of cookies, we can remember this by means of a cookie. That means you do not have to repeat your preferences every time you visit, saving you time and making your visits to our website more enjoyable.

The Distillery cookie ensures that a video, that you have viewed on the website, remembers the point in the video you have watched to. If you come back later, the video starts playing from that point.

The ‘cookie bar’ cookie ensures that the banner with information on the use of cookies remains visible as long as necessary. Just as with the session cookies, your permission is not required for this cookie, as it is strictly necessary for communication on the use of cookies.

The analytical cookies are placed by Google Analytics and WordPress.

They collect information on how you use our website (pages visited, average duration of a visit, products clicked on, etc.).

We can use these cookies to improve the content of our website.

We need your permission to place the analytical cookies. If you continue to browse the website, we consider this action as your agreement to placing these cookies.

How can you manage or remove cookies?

Most Internet browsers are set up to automatically accept cookies. You can decline or delete cookies via the browser settings on your computer. The exact method for doing this differs from browser to browser. If necessary, consult your browser’s help function. These settings must be configured individually for each browser and for each computer/device!

The non-acceptance, removal or deletion of cookies may mean that certain functionalities of the website do not function or do not function properly. This may lead to a disappointing website experience.

Do we use other tracking technologies?

When you visit the website, we automatically collect technical data (log files) to improve the ease of use of the website.

Which personal data?

In concrete terms, we collect the IP address of your computer or other devices, the pages visited, the duration of the visit, the Internet browser you use to surf and the duration of your visit to the website.

What do we do with your data?

The processing of this information is essential for optimising our operational management. We use this technical data to improve the functionality, user-friendliness and security of our website. Based on the data collected from all our website visitors, we also look at how many visitors we have per month, when they visit, which pages are most visited and with which browsers, and whether or not problems occur during a website visit.

How long is the information stored?

We store the log files for 7 days.

Do you have any questions for us, or would you like to exercise your right to access, correct, object to, restrict or delete your information?
