For this purpose general information will be documented, for example when specific content in our range is accessed or which web pages are visited most often.


For this purpose we insert so-called “cookies“ (little text files containing configuration information). The inserted cookies serve the purpose of ascertaining in particular the frequency of website use and the number of users. This is how we learn which areas of our website and other websites our users have visited.

The data stored on these visits cannot, however, be traced back to the user. All the anonymous data collected will not be matched to your personal data in accordance with clause 3 of this Privacy Policy and deleted immediately after the statistical evaluation has been completed.

However, our website is generally open to users, whose browsers do not accept cookies.


Our websites also contain plug-ins to the social network Facebook. These plug-ins are exclusively operated by Facebook. The plug-ins are made visible on our website via the so-called “gefällt mir” button or the Facebook logo. When you visit a sub-page on our website which contains such a plug-in, your browser establishes a link with Facebooks’ servers, thereby transmitting the data contained in the plug-in to your browser, which then integrates this into the page you are currently viewing. The information about your visit to our website is therefore automatically transmitted to Facebook.

Your active interaction with these plug-ins, for example by clicking on the “gefällt mir” button or by making a comment, means that this data is transmitted directly to Facebook and also stored there. If you wish to prevent such a transmission of data, you must log-out of your Facebook account before visiting the Canyon website.

Information on the extent and purpose of data collection via Facebook as well as the processing and use of your personal data can be viewed on the Privacy Policy page on Facebook at http://de-de.facebook.com/privacy/explanation.php.
