Your data will be processed in accordance with the legal data protection regulations. As far as we link to other websites, we have neither influence nor control on the linked contents and the data protection regulations there. We recommend checking the data protection declarations on the linked websites to determine whether and to what extent personal data is collected, processed, used or made available to third parties.

Definitions

Our data protection declaration should be simple and understandable for everyone. The data protection declaration generally uses the official terms of the Basic Data Protection Ordinance (DSGVO). The official definitions are explained in Art. 4 DSGVO.

General
Your personal data (e.g. title, name, house address, e-mail address, phone number, bank details, credit card number) are processed by us only in accordance with the provisions of German data privacy laws. The following provisions describe the type, scope and purpose of collecting, processing and utilizing personal data. This data privacy policy applies only to our web pages. If links on our pages route you to other pages, please inquire there about how your data are handled in such cases.

Data processing by visiting our website

When you visit our website, it is technically necessary that data is transmitted to our web server via your Internet browser. The following data is recorded during a running connection for communication between your Internet browser and our web server:

Browser type/ browser version
Operating system used
Referrer URL
Access status (file transferred, file not found etc.)
Page from which the file was requested
Host name of the accessing computer
IP address of the requesting computer

We collect the listed data to ensure a smooth connection establishment of the website and to enable a comfortable use of our website by the users. In addition, the log file serves the evaluation of system security and stability as well as administrative purposes. The legal basis for the temporary storage of data or log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

For reasons of technical security, in particular to prevent attempts to attack our web server, these data may be temporarily stored by us. It is not possible for us to see conclusions about individual persons on the basis of this data. After seven days at the latest, the data is made anonymous by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a reference to the individual user. These data are not evaluated in anonymous form except for statistical purposes. These data are not combined with data from other data sources.

General data processing on the website (except web analysis, advertising tracking, cookies, newsletters and social media plug-ins)

The following data processing is necessary on our website to provide you with certain services:

Web analysis with Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (Google). Google Analytics uses cookies, i.e. text files stored on your computer to enable analysis of website usage by you. Information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there. In case of activated IP anonymization on this website, however, your IP address is previously truncated 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 is a full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. On behalf this website’s owner, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports about website activities, and provide the website’s operator with further services related to website and Internet usage.

Hotjar
This website uses a web analytics service of Hotjar Ltd. (“Hotjar”). Interactions of randomly selected, individual visitors with the website are recorded anonymously. This creates a log of e.x. mouse movements and clicks with the aim to show improvement possibilities of the respective website. Hotjar uses “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of your use of the website. In order to exclude a direct relationship, IT addresses are stored and processed only anonymously. In addition, information about the operating system, browsers, incoming and outcoming links, geographical origin, as well as the resolution and type of the device are evaluated for statistical purpose.

Google Web Fonts

This site uses web fonts provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”) to uniformly display fonts. Google Web Fonts allows us to use external fonts, so-called Google Fonts. When you visit our website, the required Google Font is loaded from your web browser into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly. This is necessary so that your browser can also show an optically improved representation of our texts. If your browser does not support this feature, your computer will use a standard font for display. These web fonts are integrated by a server call, usually a Google server in the USA. This will connect to the server which page of our website you have visited. Google also stores the IP address of the browser of the visitor’s terminal device.
We use Google Web Fonts for optimization purposes, in particular to improve the use of our Internet presence for you and to make its design more user-friendly. This is also our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Google has signed and certified itself under the Privacy Shield Agreement between the European Union and the USA.
By doing so, Google undertakes to comply with the standards and regulations of European data protection law. Further information can be found in the following linked entry: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt00000000001L5AAI&status=Active

Social media plug-ins with 2-click solution
We use social media plug-ins on our website. We use the so-called two-click solution. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is initially transmitted to the providers of the plug-ins. You can recognize the provider of the plug-in by the marking on the respective plug-in or by the corresponding logo. We offer you the possibility to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only if you click on the marked field and thereby activate it, the plug-in provider receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online offer. In addition, further data, e.g. your IP address, is usually transmitted. In the case of Facebook and Xing, the IP address is anonymized immediately after collection, according to the respective provider in Germany. By activating the plug-in, personal data is transferred from you to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (for providers outside the USA usually in the USA). Since the plug-in provider collects data particularly via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies before clicking on the grayed-out box using your browser’s security settings. Through the plug-ins we offer you the possibility to interact with social networks and other users, so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
We have no influence on the data collected and data processing processes, nor are we aware of the full extent of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We also have no information about the deletion of the data collected by the respective network.

Social plug-ins from Facebook
We use social plug-ins from facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. The plug-ins can be recognized by way of the Facebook logo or the supplement “Facebook Social Plug-in”. For example, if you click on the “Like” button or leave a comment, the relevant information is transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. Furthermore, Facebook makes your likes public for your Facebook friends. If you are logged into Facebook, it can assign the invocation of our page directly to your Facebook account. Even if you are not logged in or don’t have a Facebook account, your browser sends information (e.g. which web pages you have called up, your IP address) which is then stored by Facebook. For details about handling of your personal data by Facebook and your related rights, please refer to the data privacy policy of Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php. If you do not want Facebook to map data collected about you via our Web sites to your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before you visit our web pages.
