Legal Notice


Our top offers


This is an information page as part of our legal notice. Owing to the large number of technical features in our websites, they cannot be used properly without cookies.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file that stores Internet settings. Virtually every website uses cookie technology. The cookie is downloaded by your Internet browser the first time you visit a website. The next time you visit this website using the same device, the cookie and the information stored in it is either sent back to the website that generated it (first party cookie) or sent to another website to which it belongs (third party cookie). As a result, the website recognizes that it has already been accessed with this browser and, in some cases, varies the content displayed.

Like most websites on the Internet, our websites need cookies in order to offer convenient, innovative functions. There are cookies without consent and cookies that require consent.

Some cookies are very useful as they can improve the user experience when a website is visited again. If you use the same device and browser as before, cookies remember your preferences, share how you use a page and tailor the offers you see so that they are more relevant to your personal interests and needs.

Cookies can be divided into four categories depending on their function and purpose: strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies, cookies for marketing purposes.

Cookies not requiring consent on this website

Strictly necessary cookies allow functions without which you would not be able to use this website as intended. These cookies are used exclusively by SOCCA! and are therefore so-called first party cookies. They are stored on your computer only during the current browser session. Strictly necessary cookies ensure for example that when you call up website functions you are shown a version whose bandwidth-related data volume corresponds to that of the Internet connection you are using.

Such cookies also ensure functionality during a change from http to https, for example when switching pages, and thus compliance with increased security requirements for data transmission.

Last but not least, such cookies also store your decision regarding the use of cookies on our website. Your consent is not required for use of strictly necessary cookies.

Strictly necessary cookies cannot be disabled via the function on this page but you can disable all cookies in your browser at any time.

Cookies requiring consent on this website

Cookies, which by legal definition are not strictly necessary to use the website, still perform important tasks. Without these cookies, functions that allow comfortable browsing on our website such as pre-completed forms are no longer available. Settings you have changed, for example language selection, cannot be saved and must therefore be queried again on each page. Furthermore, we cannot offer you individual products and services without these cookies.

Third party content is also integrated into the website. This includes Facebook services or YouTube videos. These third-party providers can theoretically place cookies on your computer while you are visiting our website and thereby receive for example the information that you have accessed a SOCCA Group website. Please visit the websites of the third party providers for further information regarding their use of cookies. If you have chosen not to give or to revoke your consent to the use of cookies requiring your consent, only those functions of our website whose use we can guarantee without these cookies will be made available to you. Areas of our website where it is technically possible to integrate third-party content and thus set third-party cookies will not be available to you in this case. If this is the case, you will be notified accordingly. If you still want to use the content of the website, this will only be possible if you consent to the use of cookies that require your consent. To do this, please use the consent function provided at the relevant point on our website.


Cookies can be divided into four categories depending on their function and purpose: strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies, cookies for marketing purposes.

Strictly necessary cookies

Strictly necessary cookies are needed to navigate a site and use its features. Without these cookies, certain functions cannot be guaranteed. For example, there is no guarantee that actions taken during a visit (e.g. text input) will be preserved, even when navigating between individual pages.

Performance cookies

Performance cookies collect information about how a website is used – such as which pages a visitor views most often and whether they receive error messages from websites. These cookies store no information that would allow the user to be identified. The information collected is aggregated and therefore anonymous. These cookies are used exclusively to improve the performance of a website and thus the user experience.

Functional cookies

Functional cookies allow a website to store information that has already been provided (such as user name, language selection or your location) and to provide users with improved, more personalized functions. For example, a website could offer local price-relevant tax information if it uses a cookie to store the region where the user is currently located. Functional cookies also allow requested functions such as video playback. They collect anonymized information and cannot track your movements on other websites.

Cookies for marketing purposes

Cookies for marketing purposes are used to show ads that are more targeted to the user, relevant and adapted to his interests. They are also used to limit how often an ad appears and to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They register whether or not you visited a website. This information can be shared with third parties, e.g. advertisers. Cookies to improve the targeting of specific groups and advertising are often linked to third-party site functions.

Use of cookies on SOCCA! Group websites

Like most websites that you visit, the SOCCA! Group websites use cookies to improve the user experience whether you visit the website once or on numerous occasions.  This allows you to switch between pages quickly and easily, save your favourites, communicate with others via social networks like Facebook or Google+ and use GoogleMaps services. Cookies are set either by our own website (first party cookies) or by other websites whose content appears on our website (third party cookies). For example, our website features “Share” buttons that allow users to share content with their friends on social networks such as Facebook and Twitter. These third party providers can set cookies if you have logged in to their sites and then visit our website. The SOCCA! Group has no influence over the cookie settings of these websites. Please visit the websites of the third party providers for further information regarding their use of cookies.

Managing and deleting cookies

Using the button at the top, you can conveniently reject or agree to cookies requiring your consent.

You can also block and delete cookies by changing your browser settings. In order to manage cookies, most browsers allow you to accept or reject all cookies or to accept only certain types of cookies. You will find details of the procedures for managing and deleting cookies in your browser’s help function.

If you restrict the use of cookies in any way, you will not be able to use all the interactive features of our website.

Use of social plug-ins

The SOCCA! Group website uses so-called social plug-ins (“Plug-ins”) from the Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Instagram social networks. These Plug-ins are marked with the logo of the particular social network.

If you access the website, your browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of these social networks. The content of the Plug-in is transferred from the relevant social network direct to your browser and incorporated into the website.

When Plug-ins are incorporated, Facebook for example receives the information that you have accessed the relevant page on the SOCCA! Group website. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can link your visit to your Facebook account. Please note that this information is exchanged when you visit the website, regardless of whether you interact with the Plug-ins. If you interact with the Plug-ins, e.g. by clicking on the "Like" button, the relevant information is transferred from your browser straight to Facebook and saved there. Information regarding the purpose and scope of data collection, the further processing and use of data by social networks as well as your rights and the settings options available to protect your privacy can be found in the data protection policies of the social networks.

If you do not want the integrated social networks to collect data about you via our website, you must log out of the social networks before visiting the website. If you would like to prevent information being shared with the aforementioned social networks during your visit to the website, you can also do this by opting out of cookies using the button above.
