Contact Form / Email

If you get in contact with us per contact form or email, we will save the information that you have given us for the purpose of processing the request as well as for potential follow-up questions, and redirect it to the corresponding department and also to external agents, if necessary. The processing of your data is initially carried out based upon your consent through your establishment of contact, but, if necessary, also for awareness of our rightful interests or the rightful interests of third parties or for enforcement, awareness and defence of legal claims.
The duration of the processing depends on the individual case. If business letters / business documents are created, these will be saved until the expiry of the legal retention period (normally around 10 years). Provided that the establishment of contact is made for different reasons, the storage duration may be longer or shorter.

  • Public authorities, where overriding legal requirements exist
    If necessary, our affiliates, provided they are affected
  • Providers of externally commissioned services (e.g. cloud memory suppliers, phone service providers, internet service providers, email service providers) as long as we have closed a deal with these providers, in which the protection of your data is also established by the provider.
  • Tax authorities, audit authorities and other authorities, if we are convinced that we are obligated to pass on this data (for example, because a request for a tax authority or in connection with a possible legal dispute exists)
  • External agents, that render services on our behalf (among them are external consultants, business partners and professional consultants, such as tax consultants, lawyers, accountants and bookkeepers, technical support functions and IT-consultants, that carry out development and testing work on the technological systems of our company)

Processed Data

In the following, we will describe which implemented technologies allow for your personal data to be processed

Server Logfiles

When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically being gathered. This information (server logfiles) roughly includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider and more. This is only information that cannot be traced back to you.

This information is technically necessary to correctly deliver website content requested by you and compulsively arises with the use of the internet. It is particularly processed for these purposes:

  • Guarantee of an error-free connection to the website,
  • Guarantee of error-free usage of our website,
  • Evaluation of the system security and dependability as well as
  • For further administrative purposes.

The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest in the above-mentioned purposes for data collection. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about you personally. Recipients of the data are job processors as necessary.

Anonymous information of this kind is evaluated statically by us, if required, to optimize our online presence and its underlying technology.

Cookies

As many other websites do, we also use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. Hereby we can automatically receive data (e.g. your IP address, used browsers, operating system and your internet connection). Cookies cannot be used to start programs or to transfer viruses onto a computer. With the information contained in the cookies, we can simplify navigation for you and enable the correct visual display of our websites.

Persistent/permanent cookies help our website to remember its data and settings if you access our website again later on.

Session cookies are only saved to your computer during your internet sessions and are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Normally you would save an anonymous session ID, with which you can use a website without having to sign in to every single site. Having said this, we do not collect information via your hard drive.

Opt-out cookies are simply cookies that are meant to prevent cookies from being placed on a specific website server or advertisers in the future.

Needless to say, you can generally also view our website without cookies. Internet browsers are regularly set to accept cookies. You can generally deactivate the use of cookies in your browser settings at any time. Please use your internet browser’s help feature to find out how to change these settings. Please note that individual functions of our website might not work if you have deactivated the use of cookies.

We use your own cookies to enhance the visitor friendliness of our website.

We are allowed to do so, as it serves our legitimate interest in the technically error-free and optimised conveyance of our website.

Anonymous data is passed on to third parties. Personal data is passed on to third parties.

Analysis Tools and Advertisement

Google Analytics Re-marketing

Our website uses Google analytics re-marketing functions in combination with the cross-device functions from Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA is the provider.

Hereby, the advertisement target groups are created with Google analytics re marketing, and connected with the cross-device functions from Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. This way, interest-related and personalized promotional messages that depend on your past usage and surf behaviour can be shown. So long as you have accordingly given consent, Google will connect your web history and app-browser history with your Google account for this purpose. This way, every terminal that you sign into with your Google account can be modified to have the same personalized promotional messages.

In order to support this function, Google analytics collects Google-authenticated IDs of the user, which will be temporarily linked with our Google analytics data to define and create target groups for the cross-device press advertisement.

You can permanently counter the cross device re-marketing/targeting, by deactivating personalized advertisement in your Google account. To do so, follow this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.

The summary of the collected data in our Google account occurs solely upon basis of your consent, which you can submit or revoke through Google (Art. 6 Para. 1, recital a of the GDPR). Collection of data rests upon Art. 6 Para. 1, recital f of the GDPR in the case of data collection processes that are not amalgamated in your Google account (e.g. because you do not have a Google account or have revoked the amalgamation). The legitimate interest stems from the website operator having an interest in the anonymized analysis of the website visitors for advertising purposes.

Further information and the data protection regulation can be found in Google’s data protection declaration at: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/.

Google Analytics (google-analytics.com)

Google analytics is Google Inc.’s web analysis service. The way visitors use the website is analysed with the cookies that are used.

The following data is therefore used: IP-address, search history, location-based data, obvious device ID, name, address, phone number, email address, login information, the display of advertisement, analysis data, browser information, cookie data, date/time, demographic data, type of hardware, type of software, internet service providers, display of sites, operated domains

Google uses this information to analyse the usage of the website, to compile reports on the website usage for the website operators and to deliver services in connection with website activity and internet usage.

Aggregated data is passed on to third parties Anonymous data is passed on to third parties. Personal data is passed on to third parties.

Cookies for the Google analytics function are resident cookies. The concrete storage duration of the cookie can be read in your browser. However, you should note that each re-visit pushes the expiry date back by 2 years.

Use of External Resources (Font and Script Libraries, YouTube)

In order to display our content appealingly and correctly in all browsers, we use script and font libraries from external library managers on this website. When these font libraries and script libraries are called, a connection to the manager of the library will be made automatically. This makes it theoretically possible for managers of the corresponding libraries to collect data. This data collection/processing, however, is not contracted by us.

We specifically use:

Google Webfonts (fonts.googleapis.com, gstatic.com)

Google Webfonts are transferred to avoid repeated loading in your browser’s cache. If the browser does not support Google Webfonts or inhibits access, the contents will be shown in a standard font.

You can find the privacy policy of the Google library manager here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Ajax (ajax.googleapis.com)

Ajax is a JavaSript library that enables us to carry out HTTP requests while the website is being displayed and thus modify the site without having to load it again.

You can find the privacy policy of the Google library manager here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

cloudflare

Cloudflare provides a CSS script with which our website is visually displayed the way we intend it to be. We use this library so that our site functions as quickly and efficiently as possible – from whichever device you access it.

You can find the privacy policy of the Cloudflare library manager here: https://www.cloudflare.com/security-policy/

Google Maps

This site uses Google Maps functions to display geographical information visually. The manager of the corresponding plugins is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. To use Google Maps, your IP address and data on the usage of the Google Maps functions will be transferred to Google in the United States. The use of Google Maps is in our legitimate interest in an attractive presentation of our online offerings.

Google’s privacy declaration: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

 

Embedded YouTube Videos

We embed YouTube videos into some of our websites. The manager of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a site with a YouTube video, a connection is made to YouTube servers and YouTube is informed of which sites you are visiting. YouTube can assign your surfing behaviour to you when you are logged into your Google account.
When a YouTube video is started, YouTube inserts cookies, in which information on the user behaviour is collected.

YouTube also files non-personal user information in other cookies.
