Use of cookies:

 LivingCarpets uses so-called cookies on various pages. These are small text files that are stored on the customer's device.

These data do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about the person visiting the website. The data collected are only used for statistical evaluations and to improve the website.

Use of Google Analytics for web analysis:

This website uses the “Google Analytics” service offered by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) to analyze website usage by users. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, small text files that are stored on the user's computer and that enable an analysis of the website's use by the visitor.

 The information generated by cookies about the use of the website is usually transferred to and stored on a Google server in the USA. Your IP address is recorded, but pseudonymized immediately (e.g. by deleting the last 8 bits). This means that only a rough localization is possible.

 The relationship with the web analysis provider is based on the "Privacy Shield" agreement. The data processing takes place on the basis of the legal provisions of § 96 Abs 3 TKG as well as Art 6 Abs 1 lit a (consent) and / or f (legitimate interest) of the DSG-VO. Our concern within the meaning of the GDPR (legitimate interest) is the improvement of our offer and our website. Since the privacy of our users is important to us, the user data is pseudonymized. By using this website, you consent to the processing of the data collected about you by Google in the manner described above and for the purpose set out above.

The visitor to the website can prevent the storage of cookies by setting the browser software accordingly. LivingCarpets would like to point out, however, that in this case not all functions of the website can be used. In addition, the collection of the data generated by cookies and related to the use of the website (including the IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google can be prevented by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the link below: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
