In principle, you can use our online services in the form of this website without submitting any personal information, e.g., should you wish to find out about our company or products and services by viewing the corresponding pages.

 

The provider of this website automatically collects and stores information in so-called “server log files”, which your browser automatically transmits and are required in order to display our website. These include, for example:

– Your device’s browser type/version

– Your device’s operating system

– The date and time of the server request

– The website from which you accessed our site

– Your IP address

 

This data is not assigned to specific persons and is not merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to use this data if we become aware of specific indications of illegal use of our website or an attack on our systems.

 

Should you make personal data available to us within the scope of establishing contact (e.g., by sending an e-mail, registering for newsletters), this information will only be processed by us if such processing is permitted by the statutory provisions.

Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR serves as a legal basis for the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party. This also applies to the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

In certain cases, we are subject to legal obligations when processing personal data, for which Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data for which we obtain the data subject’s consent, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If we carry out data processing to protect our legitimate interests, we use Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR as the legal basis.

 

We process and store personal data for a specific purpose if this is necessary to fulfill our contractual and legal obligations (including statutory storage obligations) and to safeguard our legitimate interests. In addition, any disclosure of personal data to third parties only takes place within the scope of the aforementioned legal bases.

If the data is no longer required for the purposes mentioned above, it will be deleted.

Exceptions to this may exist on the basis of:

– voluntary consent

– consideration of the time limits for lodging appeals

– the statutory provisions on the statute of limitations relating to the preservation of evidence

 

Our employees are bound to secrecy and compliance with the provisions of the current data protection legislation. The access to personal data by our employees is limited to those employees who need the respective data due to their professional tasks.

In some cases, we also use external service providers to process personal data, which are contractually commissioned in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR.

 

We use the necessary technical and organizational security measures to protect personal data against loss, accidental or intentional manipulation, access by unauthorized third parties and/or destruction.

 

This website uses SSL encryption for security reasons. An encrypted connection can be recognized by the character string “https://” and the padlock symbol in your browser line.

However, we wish to point out that data transmission by e-mail is not secure due to the possibility of security gaps. Complete protection of the transmitted data against access by third parties is therefore not possible.

The mandatory information for sending the newsletter is your e-mail address, country, zip code and language. The submission of additional data is voluntary and is used to address you personally.

We use cookies on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in optimizing both the stability and security of the website and our advertising.

The use of cookies – taking into account the user’s interests – is necessary to achieve these goals. No analysis related to individual persons is carried out using the information we obtain during your visit to this website.

 

 

We also use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google LLC (“Google”), to analyze access to our homepage so that we can constantly optimize our website for you.

Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer, to help analyze how users use the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) is transmitted to a Google server in the US and stored there.

However, by enabling IP anonymization on this website, Google will truncate your IP address within European Union Member States beforehand. This truncation eliminates any personal reference based on your IP address. Only in individual cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there.

 

Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity for website operators and to provide other services associated with website activity and internet usage. In addition, Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Google has signed up to the EU_US Privacy Shield. By using this site, you agree to allow Google to process data about you in the manner described above and for the purposes set out above. You can prevent this data from being processed by Google by downloading and installing the appropriate browser plug-in to deactivate Google Analytics: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

This data can be used to create user profiles under a pseudonym. So-called “tracking scripts” are used for this purpose, which serve to collect company-related data.

This means that YouTube does not store any information about your website visit unless you are playing a video. When you click on a video, the corresponding information is sent to YouTube. We have no control over the collection and use of data by YouTube. If you are additionally logged in to YouTube, this information will also be assigned to your user account. You can prevent this by logging out of YouTube before watching a video.
