Collection of general information when visiting our website

Nature and purpose of the processing:

When you access our website, i.e. when you do not register or otherwise submit information, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider, your IP address and similar.

They are processed in particular for the following purposes:

  • Ensuring that the website can be connected without problems,
  • Ensuring a smooth use of our website,
  • evaluation of system safety and stability, and
  • for other administrative purposes.

We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. Information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us, if necessary, in order to optimise our Internet presence and the technology behind it.

Legal basis:

The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.

Recipient:

Recipients of the data may be technical service providers who act as contract processors for the operation and maintenance of our website.

Storage period:

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose of collection. This is generally the case for the data used to provide the website, when the respective session has ended.

Provision prescribed or necessary:

The provision of the aforementioned personal data is not required by law or contract. Without the IP address, however, the service and functionality of our website cannot be guaranteed. In addition, individual services may not be available or may be restricted. For this reason an objection is excluded.

Cookies

Nature and purpose of the processing:

Like many other websites, we also use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your end device (laptop, tablet, smartphone or similar) when you visit our website.

This enables us to obtain certain data such as IP address, browser used and operating system.

Cookies cannot be used to start programs or transfer viruses to a computer. We can use the information contained in cookies to make navigation easier for you and to enable our web pages to be displayed correctly.

Under no circumstances will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.

Of course, you can always view our website without cookies. Internet browsers are regularly set to accept cookies. In general, you can deactivate the use of cookies at any time via the settings of your browser. Please use the help functions of your Internet browser to find out how to change these settings. Please note that individual functions of our website may not work if you have deactivated the use of cookies.

You will be asked to agree to the use of cookies the first time you visit this website. By default, cookies are not activated without your consent (opt-in procedure). You can change your settings at any time by accessing the relevant settings page via the corresponding link at the bottom of the website.

Use of Google Analytics

Nature and purpose of the processing:

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (hereinafter: “Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymisation on these websites, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states which are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with website and internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.

The purposes of data processing are to evaluate the use of the website and to compile reports on activities on the website. On the basis of the use of the website and the Internet, further associated services are then to be provided.

Legal basis:

The processing of data is based on the user’s consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO).

Recipient:

Recipient of the data is Google as a commissioned processor. We have concluded the corresponding contract with Google for this purpose.

Storage period:

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for our recording purposes.

Transfer to third countries:

Google processes your data in the USA and has submitted to the EU_US Privacy Shield https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

Provision is mandatory or necessary:

The provision of your personal data is voluntary, solely based on your consent. If you prevent access, this may result in functional restrictions on the website.

Revocation of consent:

By default, no Google Analytics cookies are activated without your consent (opt-in procedure). You have several options to prevent the use of Google Analytics.
On the one hand, you can prevent tracking by Google Analytics on our pages by deactivating the use of third-party cookies in the cookie banner under “Settings” when you first visit the website. This means that the corresponding cookie will not be installed in your browser. This will prevent Google Analytics from recording data for this website and for this browser in future as long as you do not change the settings.
In addition or as an alternative, you can prevent tracking by Google Analytics on our pages by clicking this link: [google_analytics_optout]Disable Google Analytics[/google_analytics_optout]. This will install an opt-out cookie on your device. This will prevent Google Analytics from recording data for this website and for this browser in future as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.
In addition, you can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: Browser Add On to deactivate Google Analytics.

Profiling:

The tracking tool Google Analytics can be used to evaluate the behaviour of visitors to the website and to analyse their interests. For this purpose we create a pseudonymous user profile.

Contact form:

Nature and purpose of the processing:

The data you enter will be stored for the purpose of individual communication with you. For this purpose, it is necessary to provide a valid e-mail address and your name. This serves to assign the enquiry and to subsequently answer it. The specification of further data is optional.

Legal basis:

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is based on a legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO).

By providing the contact form, we would like to make it easy for you to contact us. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your enquiry and for possible follow-up questions.

If you contact us to request an offer, the data entered in the contact form will be processed for the purpose of implementing pre-contractual measures (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO).

Recipient:

Recipients of the data may be contract processors.

Storage period:

Data will be deleted at the latest 6 months after processing the enquiry.

If a contractual relationship is established, we are subject to the statutory retention periods under the German Commercial Code (HGB) and delete your data after these periods have expired.

Provision prescribed or necessary:

The provision of your personal data is voluntary. However, we can only process your enquiry if you provide us with your name, your e-mail address and the reason for the enquiry.

Use of Google reCaptcha

Nature and purpose of the processing:

We use the Google service reCaptcha to determine whether a person or a computer makes a certain entry in our contact or newsletter form.

Google uses the following data to check whether you are a human being or a computer: IP address of the terminal device used, the website you visit with us and on which the captcha is integrated, the date and duration of the visit, the identification data of the type of browser and operating system used, Google account if you are logged in with Google, mouse movements on the reCaptcha areas and tasks in which you have to identify images.

The legal basis for the described data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 letter f DSGVO. There is a legitimate interest on our part in this data processing, to guarantee the security of our website and to protect us from automated entries (attacks).

Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)

Nature and purpose of the processing:

In order to display our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use “Google Web Fonts” from Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter “Google”) on this website to display fonts.

The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

The fonts used are stored on the website operator’s own servers and retrieved from there. There is therefore no access to external servers and thus no associated data transfer.

Social plugins

Nature and purpose of the processing:

Social plugins from the providers listed below are used on our websites. You can recognise the plugins by the fact that they are marked with the corresponding logo.

These plugins may be used to send information, which may include personal data, to the service provider and may be used by the latter. We prevent the unconscious and unintentional collection and transmission of data to the service provider by a 2-click solution. In order to activate a desired social plugin, it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. Only when the plugin is activated is the collection of information and its transmission to the service provider triggered. We ourselves do not collect any personal data via the social plugins or their use.

We have no influence on what data an activated plugin collects and how this data is used by the service provider. At present, it must be assumed that a direct connection to the provider’s services will be established and at least the IP address and device-related information will be recorded and used. It is also possible that the service provider will attempt to store cookies on the computer used. Please refer to the data protection information of the respective service provider to find out which specific data is collected and how it is used. Note: If you are logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook can identify you as a visitor to a particular page.

We have included content from the following companies on our website:
Twitter (https://twitter.com/)

SSL Encryption

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption procedures (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

Changes to our data protection regulations

We reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration so that it always meets the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection declaration then applies to your renewed visit.
