Cookies

Our sites use so-called cookies in part. Cookies do not inflict any damage on your computer and do not contain any malware. Cookies are meant to make our offers more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and that are saved by your browser. Most of the cookies used by us are so-called session cookies. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies will be saved on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies make it possible for us to recognize your browser at the next visit. You can set your browser in such a way that you will be informed about the use of cookies and allow cookies only on a case-by-case basis, exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general, as well as activate the automatic deletion of all cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be impaired.

Server Log Files

The site provider automatically collects and saves information in so-called server log files which your browser transmits automatically. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request

These data cannot be attributed to a certain person. They are not brought together with other data sources. We reserve the right to subsequently examine these data if there is concrete evidence for illegal usage.

Contact Form

If you send us requests via our contact form, your data from the request form including the contact data stated by you are saved by us in case there should arise any further questions or for the purpose of processing the request. These data will not be passed on without your written consent.

SSL Encryption

This page uses an SSL encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content like e.g. requests which you send to us as the website provider. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and that there is a lock icon in your browser line. If the SSL encryption is active, the data which you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Google Web Fonts

This page uses so-called Web Fonts provided by Google for the uniform representation of font types. When visiting a site, your browser uploads the required Web Fonts to your browser cache in order to represent texts and font types correctly.

For this purpose, the browser used by you must establish a connection with the Google servers. Due to this, Google is informed about the fact that our website has been accessed via your IP address. Using Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online content. This constitutes a justifiable interest in line with Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit f. GDPR.

If your browser does not support Web Fonts, a default font type from your computer will be used.

You will find further information about Google Web Fonts under https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s data protection declaration: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Analytical Tools and Tools of Third Party Vendors

 At the visit of our website your browsing behavior can be statistically analyzed. This particularly happens with cookies and with so-called analytical programs. The analysis of your browsing behavior usually happens anonymously; the browsing behavior cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools.

Links to other Providers

Our website also contains – clearly visible – links to the online presences of other companies. However, we take over no responsibility at all for the content and the data protection / data security conceptions of these websites.

Basic Safety Principles

In order to protect the data of our employees/customers/suppliers stored at our company from accidental or willful manipulations, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized people, we have taken respective technical and organizational measures. The security levels are regularly reviewed together with security experts and adapted to new security standards.

Objection to Advertising Emails

We herewith explicitly object to the usage of contact data published within the context of the obligation to provide an imprint to send not explicitly requested advertising and information material. The site operators explicitly preserve the right to take legal steps in case of unsolicited mailing of advertising information, e.g. via spam emails.

Processing of Data (Customer and Contract Data)

We collect, process and use personal data only insofar as they are required for the justification, content-related design or change of legal relations (inventory data). We only collect, process and use personal data about the use of our webpages (usage data) insofar as this is required to make the use of our services possible for the user or to bill them.

Data Protection Clause for the Application and Use of Google Analytics (with Anonymization Function)

The controller of this website has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the elicitation, collection and evaluation of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects data, among other things, from which website a visitor came to a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The controller responsible for processing uses the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp” for web analysis via Google Analytics. With this addition, the IP address of the data subject’s internet connection is shortened and anonymized by Google if access to the website is from a member state of the European Union or from another contracting state of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze visitor flows on our website. Google uses the collected data and information, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us that show the activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the data subject’s information technology system. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is able to analyze the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller, is accessed, and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically triggered by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission statements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject. Every time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may share this personal data collected through the technical process with third parties.

The data subject can, as already described above, prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the used internet browser and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Using such a setting of the Internet browser would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject.

In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs. Furthermore, the data subject has the option of objecting to and preventing the collection of data generated by Google Analytics relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. For this, the data subject needs to download and install a browser add-on at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on tells Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. Google considers the installation of the browser add-on to be an objection.

If the data subject’s information technology system is later deleted, formatted or reinstalled, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics. Sofern das Browser-Add-On durch die betroffene Person oder einer anderen Person, die ihrem Machtbereich zuzurechnen ist, deinstalliert oder deaktiviert wird, besteht die Möglichkeit der Neuinstallation oder der erneuten Aktivierung des Browser-Add-Ons. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the data subject or another person who is within their sphere of influence, there is the option of reinstalling or reactivating the browser add-on.
