The following Privacy Statement will provide you with an overview of how Green Innovation GmbH guarantees the protection of your privacy, the type of data being collected as well as its main purpose.

IP address

The IP address is transmitted on every server request to let the server know where the response has to be sent. Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) gives you an IP address as soon as you connect to the Internet, and the ISP can retrace which IP address was assigned to which of its customers at any given time. For as long as the IP address is saved, it is theoretically possible to identify the owner of the Internet connection via the ISP. We use IP addresses in order to prevent misuse of our services, including hacking and automated requests. In any case we record your IP address only temporarily to protect your data.


The Purpose of Cookies is to allow you to use the Green Innovation’s website without any restrictions, we use what are referred to as session cookies. Session cookies are tiny parcels of information that are automatically saved to the memory of the website visitors’ computer. In a session cookie a randomly created and unique identification number is deposited, a so-called session ID. A cookie additionally contains information on its origin and its life span. These cookies are unable to save any other kind of data. Placing session cookies on your computer does not enable us to see the files on your computer. After you conclude your session, i.e. after you close your browser window, the session cookies are automatically deleted. We use analysis cookies: the extent of such data is described below. The data are only used internally and serve primarily to continuously improve our website and adapt it to suit your business or personal requirements.
