Purposes of data processing by the party responsible and third parties
We shall process your personal data only for the purposes stated in this data protection declaration. Your personal data shall not be provided to third parties for purposes other than those stated herein. We shall transmit your personal data to third parties only if:
you have given your explicit consent,
- the processing is necessary to execute a contract with you,
- the processing is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation,
the processing is necessary for the protection of legitimate interests and there is no reason to believe that these legitimate interests are outweighed by your protection-worthy interest in the non-forwarding of your data.
Deletion or blocking of data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We shall therefore save your personal data only as long as this is necessary to achieve the purposes stated herein or as required by the various legal storage periods. After the respective purposes no longer apply or after these storage periods expire, the corresponding data shall be blocked or deleted routinely and in accordance with the legal provisions.
Collection of general information when visiting our website
When you access our website, general information shall automatically be collected through a cookie. This information (server log files) shall include, e.g., the web browser type, operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and similar. This shall exclusively be information that shall not allow you to be identified personally.
This information shall be required technically to correctly provide the website contents requested by you and must be collected when you use the Internet. It shall be processed especially for the following purposes:
Ensuring error-free connectivity to the website,
- Ensuring smooth use of our website,
- Assessment of system security and stability as well as
- for other administrative purposes.
The processing of your personal data shall be based on our legitimate interest from the above-stated purposes for data collection. We shall not use your data to identify you personally. Only the party responsible and, if necessary, order processors shall receive this data.
We may assess anonymous information of this kind statistically to optimise our Internet presence and the required technology.
Like many other websites, we too use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server onto your hard disk. We thus automatically receive certain data such as IP address, the browser used, the operating system and your Internet connection.
Cookies cannot be used to start programmes or transfer viruses onto a computer. The information contained in cookies enables us to make the navigation easier for you and to display our pages correctly.
We shall never forward the data recorded by us to third parties or a link with personal data shall never be established without your consent.
To protect your data during transmissions, we use HTTPS encryption processes (e.g., SSL) in accordance with the latest state of technology.
If you contact us about questions of any kind by e-mail or through the contact form, you voluntarily consent to have us contact you. This shall require specification of a valid e-mail address. This shall serve for categorisation of your request and our reply. Additional information may be provided optionally. Any information provided by you shall be saved to process your request and for any follow-up questions. After your request is completed, your personal data shall be automatically deleted.
Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (hereinafter referred to as: Google). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies,” i.e. text files saved onto your computer that allow your usage of the website to be analysed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored at this location. Since IP-anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address shall first be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states that are party to the European Economic Area Agreement. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address shall be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google shall use this information to assess your use of this website, to compile reports about the website activities and to perform other services related to the use of the website and the Internet for the website operator. Google shall not merge the IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics with other data.
The purposes of data processing are to assess the use of the website and to compile reports about website activities. This allows other related services to be provided on the basis of the use of the website and of the Internet. This processing is based on the legitimate interest of the website operator.
You can prevent the cookie storage through corresponding browser settings. However, please note that you may not be able to use all functions of this website fully in this case. Furthermore, you can prevent the collection of the cookie-generated data (including your IP address) about your use of the website by Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in provided under the following link: Browser add-on for deactivating Google Analytics..
In addition or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prevent the tracking by Google Analytics on our website by clicking the link by clicking the link. This shall install an opt-out cookie on your device. This shall block the collection by Google Analytics for this website and for this browser in future as long as the cookie is installed in your browser.
Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)
To display our contents correctly and in a visually appealing manner on any browser, we use script and font libraries, such as Google Webfonts on this website (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google Webfonts are transmitted to your browser’s cache to prevent repeated loading. If the browser does not support or blocks the access to Google Webfonts, the contents shall be displayed in a standard font.
Use of script or font libraries automatically establishes a connection to the operator of the library. When doing so, it is theoretically possible that the operator of the respective library may collect data – but it is currently unclear whether and, if applicable, for which purposes the operator shall do so.
Use of Adobe Typekit
We use Adobe Typekit for the visual design of our website. Typekit is a service of Adobe Systems Software Ireland Ltd., which grants us an access to a font library. For integrating the fonts used by us, your browser must establish a connection with an Adobe server in the USA and download the font that is required for our website. Adobe thus receives the information that our website was called up from your IP address. More information about Adobe Typekit can be found in the privacy notice of Adobe at: www.adobe.com/privacy/typekit.html
Use of Google Maps
This website uses Google Maps API to visually represent geographic information. When using Google Maps, Google shall also collect, process and use data about use of the map functions by users. More information about the data processing by Google can be found in: Google’s privacy notice . There, you can also change your personal data protection settings in the data protection centre.
Detailed instructions on managing your data in connection with Google productscan be found here.
Embedded YouTube videos
We embed Youtube videos on some of our web pages. Operator of the corresponding plug-in is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plug-in, a connection is established with Youtube servers. Youtube is thereby informed as to which pages you are visiting. If you have logged into your Youtube account, Youtube can personally assign your surfing behaviour to you. You can prevent this by first logging out from your Youtube account.
If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google-Ad programme, you should also not expect such cookies when watching Youtube videos. But Youtube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in the browser.
More information on the data protection of “Youtube” can be found in the provider’s data protection declaration at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/
Our website uses Google Conversion-Tracking. If you have reached our website via an ad placed by Google, Google Adwords shall store a cookie on your computer. The cookie for conversion tracking is placed when a user clicks an ad placed by Google. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and do not serve for personal identification. When a user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can see that the user clicked the ad and was referred to this page. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information gathered with the help of conversion cookies serves to prepare conversion statistics for AdWords customers, who have decided to use conversion tracking. The customers are informed of the total number of users who clicked their ad and were referred to a page equipped with a conversion tracking tag. However, they receive no information that could identify users personally.
If you do not wish to participate in the tracking, you can reject the placement of the necessary cookie – for instance, by choosing the browser setting that deactivates the automatic placement of cookies in general, or you can set your browser to block cookies from the domain “googleleadservices.com” .
Please note that you should not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not wish for any measuring data to be recorded. If you have deleted all cookies in the browser, you must replace the respective opt-out cookie.
