General information

The concept of personal data is defined in Article 4 No. 1 of the European Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). This includes all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, your real name, your address, your telephone number or your date of birth.

Unless otherwise stated in the following sections, no personal data is collected, processed or used when using our websites. When you visit our website, some information is transmitted, such as the IP address, type and version of the web browser used, the operating system used, the website from which you came and the time of the query.

This data cannot be used by us to identify the individual user. We only evaluate the information statistically and use it exclusively to improve the attractiveness, contents and functionalities of our websites.

 

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU Data Protection Ordinance (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis.

In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(d) DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for processing.

 

Data deletion and storage time

The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

Analytics services

Our website uses Matomo, which is a so-called web analysis service. Matomo uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. For this purpose, the usage information generated by the cookie (including your shortened IP address) is transmitted to our server and stored for seven days for usage analysis purposes, which serves to optimize our website. Your IP address will be anonymous during this process, so that you as a user remain anonymous to us. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will not be passed on to third parties. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

 

 

Matomo cookies are set on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in the anonymised analysis of user behaviour in order to optimise our website and, where applicable, our advertising.

The information stored in the Matomo cookie about the use of this website is not passed on. The setting of cookies by your web browser is preventable. However, some functions of our website may be restricted by this.

If you do not agree with the storage and evaluation of the data from your visit, then you can object to the storage and use at any time by clicking on it below. In this case, an opt-out cookie is stored in your browser, which means that Matomo does not collect any session data. Attention: If you delete your cookies, the opt-out cookie will also be deleted and you may have to activate it again.

Integration of third-party services and content

We would like to point out that third party content (including videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps or graphics from other websites) may be implemented within this online offer. The prerequisite for the use of the services is that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as "third party providers") receive the IP address of the users.

The reason for this is that without the IP address, content cannot be sent to the browser of the respective user and a presentation of the content would therefore not be possible.

We have no influence on whether and to what extent third parties store the IP address.

If we are informed of this, users will be informed.

 

Social Media

So-called social bookmarks (e.g. from Facebook, Twitter and Xing) are integrated on our website. Social Bookmarks are Internet bookmarks that allow users of such services to collect links and news messages. These are only included on our website as a link to the corresponding services. After clicking on the integrated graphic you will be forwarded to the page of the respective provider, i.e. only then will user information be transferred to the respective provider. For information on the handling of your personal data when using these websites, please refer to the respective data protection regulations of the providers.

We use the following service of:

 

YouTube

YouTube can associate your surfing behavior directly with your personal profile if you are logged into your YouTube account. You can prevent this by logging out beforehand.

The use of YouTube is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Google AdWords & Conversion Tracking

In order to draw attention to our services, we place Google Adwords ads and use Google Conversion Tracking for the purpose of personalised, interest- and location-related online advertising. The option to anonymize IP addresses is controlled by the Google Tag Manager via an internal setting that is not visible in the source of this page. This internal setting is set in such a way that the anonymisation of the IP addresses required by the Federal Data Protection Act is achieved. We have the possibility to combine our ads with certain search terms. Cookies allow us to serve ads based on a user's previous visits to our site, and when the user clicks on an ad, Google places a cookie on the user's computer. Further information on the cookie technology used can also be found in Google's notes on website statistics and in the data protection regulations, which help Google and we as customers to obtain information that a user has clicked on an ad and has been redirected to our websites. The information obtained in this way is used exclusively for statistical evaluation for ad optimization. We do not receive any information that personally identifies visitors. The statistics provided to us by Google include the total number of users who clicked on one of our ads and, if applicable, whether they were forwarded to a page of our website with a conversion tag. These statistics enable us to track which search terms have been clicked on our ad most often and which ads lead to the user contacting us via the contact form If you do not wish to do so, you can prevent the cookies required for these technologies from being saved, for example via your browser settings. In this case, your visit will not be included in the user statistics and you will also have the option of selecting the types of Google ads or disabling interest-based ads on Google using the ad settings. Alternatively, you can disable the use of cookies by third parties by using the Network Advertising Initiative's disabling tool, but we and Google will still receive statistical information about how many users visited this page and when. If you do not wish to be included in these statistics either, you can prevent this with the help of additional programs for your browser (for example with the add-on Ghostery) prevent. We use the following technology from

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing - including profiling - that has legal effect against you or significantly impairs you in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision 

  1. is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the person responsible,
  2. is admissible by law of the Union or of the Member States to which the person responsible is subject and that law contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests, or
  3. with your express consent.

However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 para. 1 DSGVO, unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g DSGVO applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.

In the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the person responsible shall take reasonable measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the person responsible, to state his own position and to challenge the decision.

 

10. Right of appeal to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State where you reside, work or suspect of infringement, if you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you is contrary to the DSGVO.
