Contents of the offer

The Wine-Agency Erben assumes no responsibility for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the Weinagentur Erben, which refer to material or immaterial damage caused by the use or non-use of the information provided or by the use of incorrect and incomplete information, are fundamentally excluded, unless the Weinagentur Erben does not prove that it was intentional or gross negligent fault. All offers are non-binding. Wine-Agency Erben expressly reserves the right to change, supplement or delete parts of the pages or the entire offer without separate announcement, or to temporarily or permanently cease publication.

Collection of data

When you access our website, we automatically collect data of a general nature. This data (server log files) includes, for example, the type of your browser, your operating system, the domain name of your Internet provider and other similar general data. This data is completely independent of people and is used to correctly display the website to you and is accessed every time you use the Internet. The absolutely anonymous data is statistically evaluated to improve our online service for you.

Links and references

In the case of direct or indirect references to third-party websites ("links") that are outside the area of ​​responsibility of the Wine-Agency Erben, a liability obligation would only come into force in the event that the Weinagentur Erben is aware of the content and it is technically possible and it would be reasonable to prevent use in the event of illegal content. The Wine-Agency Erben therefore expressly declares that at the time the links were created, the corresponding linked pages were free of illegal content. The Wine-Agency Erben has no influence on the current and future design and on the content of the linked pages. Therefore, it hereby expressly distances itself from all content of all linked / connected pages that were changed after the link was created. This statement applies to all links and references set within our own website as well as to external entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the Wine-Agency Erben. For illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular for damage resulting from the use or non-use of information provided in this way, the provider of the page to which reference is made is solely liable, not the one who merely refers to the respective publication via links.


Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics, the web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", small text files that are stored on your computer and store data about the use of our website. The data generated by the cookie about the use of our website is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored. Since IP anonymization is activated on our website, your IP address will be shortened by Google. This applies to member states of the European Union and other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. In rare cases, the full IP address may be transferred to a Google server in the USA and only shortened there. Google uses this information to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports for us on the use of the website and to collect further statistical data. Your IP address will never be merged with other data stored on Google. The use of cookies can be prohibited by a setting in your browser; however, this may affect the functionality of our website. Using a special add-on program for your browser (add-on), you can deactivate the collection of data by Google Analytics.

You can object to the collection and use of your IP address by Google Analytics at any time with future effect. You can find more information on this under the following link.

Cookie duration

Some cookies (session cookies) only remain active until the browser is closed or the user logs out. Some cookies remain after closing the browser and are available for later visits to the website by the user. They are referred to as "resident" or "persistent" cookies; the duration of their existence is determined by the server when they are created. In some cases there is a fixed deadline, in other cases the duration is otherwise limited.


The following cookies are used

Google (_ga; _gid; gat_gtag_UA...) Identification via search engine and website visits At the end of the session
Website#lang Storage of the visitor's language selection At the end of the session
MailChimp web-beacon Identification for the newsletter At the end of the session


The Wine-Agency Erben e-mails / newsletters are sent using "MailChimp", a newsletter mailing platform from the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE # 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.

The email addresses of our newsletter subscribers, as well as their other data described in the context of this information, are stored on MailChimp's servers in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. According to its own information, MailChimp can also use this data to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of the dispatch and presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes to determine from which countries the recipients come. MailChimp does not use the data of our subscribers to write to them directly or to pass them on to third parties.

MailChimp's privacy policy


Collection and analysis

The newsletters contain a so-called "web beacon", i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. As part of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval, are initially collected. This information is used to technically improve the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior based on their access locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or the access times.

The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our aim nor that of MailChimp to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our subscribers and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.

Social Media & Plugins

We use social plugins on our website. The service operator may receive information and personal data from our visitors through such plugins. Social media share functions of the following services or companies are integrated on our website:

Twitter, LinkedIn, XING, Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook

Which data such a plugin collects as soon as it is activated and how it is subsequently used is beyond our control. In some cases, direct connections to the services of the respective provider are created and the IP address and specific usage information can be recorded and used. Service providers can also try to save cookies on their computer. You can find out how these cookies work in the data protection information of the respective provider. Facebook can identify you as a visitor if you are currently logged into your Facebook account.


If you register for our newsletter, we use the registration data exclusively for the newsletter service. Registered users can be contacted by us to be informed about changes, updates or other relevant information. A valid email address must be provided when registering. The so-called "double opt-in" procedure is used to check whether the applicant and the e-mail match. You have the right to have your data deleted for the newsletter service at any time. In our newsletters you will find a link to unsubscribe. You can also unsubscribe from the website or tell us what you want via our contact page.



If you contact us via our contact forms or send us an email, the corresponding data will be saved for processing. We will not pass on this data without your specific consent.
