Various personal data is collected when you use this website.  Personal data is any data which may be used to personally identify you. This privacy statement explains which data we collect, and what we use it for. It also outlines how and why this happens.

Revoking your consent to data processing
Many data-processing operations may only be performed with your express consent. You may revoke your consent at any time by advising us informally by email. This will not affect the legitimacy of any data processing that has occurred prior to the revocation. Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority: In the event of privacy breaches, the data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with a competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority for privacy matters is the state data protection officer for the German state in which our company is based. A list of data protection officers and their contact details is available at: www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html. Right to data portability You have the right to receive data we have automatically processed based on your consent or as part of a contract, or have this sent to a third party in a commonly used and machine-readable format. If you request for the data to be sent directly to another controller, this shall only be done where technically feasible.
SSL/TLS encryption
This page uses SSL/TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect transmissions of confidential content, such as orders or requests you send us, as the site operators. You can tell an encrypted connection by the fact that the browser’s address bar will change from ‘http://’ to ‘https://’ and contain a padlock symbol. If SSL/TLS encryption is enabled, the data you send us cannot be read by third parties. Encrypted payment transactions made on this website If, once a fee-based contract has been signed, you are obliged to send us your payment details (e.g. account number for direct debit authorisation), this data will be required in order to process the payment. Payment transactions using conventional means of payment (Visa/MasterCard, direct debit) are only ever performed via an encrypted SSL/TLS connection. You can tell an encrypted connection by the fact that the browser’s address bar will change from ‘http://’ to ‘https://’ and contain a padlock symbol. Encrypted communication means the payment details you send us cannot be read by third parties. Access, blocking and erasure In accordance with the legal regulations, you have the right to access information, free of charge, regarding your stored personal data, its origins and recipients, and the purpose of the data-processing, and, if applicable, the right to rectify, block or erase this data, at any time.
You are welcome to contact us at any time using the address stated in the Legal Info/Credits if you have any questions about this or other private-related issues. Ban on promotional emails Using the contact details published as part of the mandatory legal info to send unsolicited advertising or information material is prohibited. The site operators reserve the right to expressly take legal action in the event unsolicited promotional information, e.g. in the form of spam emails, is sent.

3. Data recording on our website

Cookies
Some websites use cookies. These cookies do not harm your computer, nor do they contain any viruses. They are used to make our site safer, more effective, and more user-friendly. Cookies are small text files which are placed on your computer and are saved by your browser. Most of the cookies we use are ‘session cookies’, which are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain saved on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser the next time you visit. You can configure your browser settings so that you are notified whenever cookies are installed and only allow cookies in specific cases, or so that cookie installation is prevented in general or for specific cases, or so that cookies are automatically deleted when the browser is closed. Disabling cookies may limit the use of this website’s function. Cookies required in order to execute electronic communication processes or provide specific functions requested by you (e.g. shopping-basket function) are installed based on Art. 6 Para. 1 f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in installing cookies to ensure it can provide optimised, technically flawless services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies to analyse your browsing behaviour) are installed, these are treated separately in this privacy statement. Server log files The site operator automatically collects and saves information in server log files, which your browser automatically sends us.
These are: Browser type and version / operating system used / referrer URL / host name of accessing computer / time of server request / IP address
This data is not combined with other data sources. The data-processing is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 f GDPR, which permits data-processing for the purpose of fulfilling a contract or pre-contractual measures. Contact form If you send us requests using the contact form, the data you provide in the form, including your contact details, will be stored by us so that we can process the request and address any follow-up queries. We do not share this data without your consent. The data entered in the contact form is thus processed exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 a GDPR).
You may revoke this consent at any time by advising us informally by email. This will not affect the legitimacy of the data-processing operations which have occurred prior to the revocation. The data you have entered in the contact form shall remain stored by us until you request its erasure, revoke your consent to the storage, or the reason for the data storage ceases to apply (e.g. once the processing of your enquiry is complete). This does not affect mandatory legal provisions, particularly storage periods.

4. Social media

LinkedIn plugin
Our website uses the functions of the LinkedIn network, run by LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Every time one of our pages containing LinkedIn functions is accessed, a connection to LinkedIn servers is established. LinkedIn is notified that you have visited our website using your IP address. If you click the LinkedIn ‘Recommend’ button and are logged into your LinkedIn account, LinkedIn can match your website visit to you and your user account. Please note that, as the site operators, we are not privy to the content of the transmitted data or how it is used by LinkedIn. Further information on this is available in LinkedIn’s privacy policy: www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy.

5. Analysis tools and advertising

Google Analytics
This website uses the functions of web analysis service Google Analytics, run by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses ‘cookies’ – text files stored on your computer, and which enable your website usage to be analysed. The information generated by the cookie in relation to your use of this website is generally sent to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored. Google Analytics cookies are stored based on Art. 6 Para. 1 f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing usage to optimise both its website and its advertising. IP anonymisation We have enabled the IP anonymisation function on this website. This sees Google shorten your IP address within the European Union or European Economic Area before sending it to the USA. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the USA and then shortened. Google will use this information on behalf of this website’s operator to analyse your website usage, compile reports on website activities, and render additional services for the website operator in relation to website usage and Internet usage. The IP address sent by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data. Browser plugins You may prevent cookies from being stored by configuring your browser software settings accordingly. Please note, however, that this may mean you are unable to use all functions of this website to their full extent. You may also prevent Google from recording and processing the data generated by the cookie in relation to your website usage (incl. your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. Objection to data processing You may prevent your data from being recorded by Google Analytics by clicking the following link. This will install an opt-out cookie that prevents your data from being recorded during future visits to this website: Disable Google Analytics. For more information on what Google Analytics does with user data is available in Google’s privacy policy: support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245. Order-data processing We have signed an order-data-processing contract with Google, and fully uphold the strict regulations established by the German data protection authorities in relation to using Google Analytics. Demographics in Google Analytics This website uses Google Analytics’ ‘Demographics’ function, which enables reports to be compiled on the site visitors’ ages, sex and interests. This data comes from interest-based Google advertising and visitor data from third-party providers. It cannot be matched with specific people. You may disable this function or generally prevent Google Analytics from recording you data (as described under ‘Objection to data processing’) at any time using the display settings in your Google account.

6. Plugins and tools

YouTube
Our website uses plugins for the Google-operated site, YouTube, which is run by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page on our website that contains a YouTube plugin,  a connection will be established with the YouTube servers. This will inform the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you allow YouTube to match your browsing behaviour directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account. YouTube is used in the interests of presenting our website attractively. This is a legitimate interest as defined by Art. 6 Para. 1 f GDPR. Further information on how user data is handled is available in YouTube’s privacy policy at: www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.
Google Web Fonts
This site uses Web Fonts provided by Google to ensure consistent font usage. When you visit a page, your browser downloads the necessary Web Fonts to your browser cache in order to correctly display texts and fonts. This requires your browser to establish a connection with the Google servers, which in turn informs Google that you have visited our website using your IP address. Google Web Fonts is used in the interests of presenting our website consistently and attractively. This is a legitimate interest as defined by Art. 6 Para. 1 f GDPR.  If your browser does not support Web Fonts, your computer will use a standard font. Further information on Google Web Fonts is available at developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s privacy policy: www.google.com/policies/privacy/. Google Maps This site uses the map service Google Maps via an API. The service is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. In order to use the Google Maps functions, your IP address needs to be stored. This information is generally sent to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored. This site’s operator has no control over this data transmission. Google Maps is used in the interests of presenting our website attractively and making it easier to find the locations mentioned on the website. This is a legitimate interest as defined by Art. 6 Para. 1 f GDPR. Further information on how user data is handled is available in Google’s privacy policy: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

Google Firebase

We use the developer platform ‘Google Firebase’ and its associated functions and services, run by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.  Google Firebase is a platform for developers of applications (‘apps’ for short) for mobile devices and websites. Google Firebase provides a number of functions, which can be found on the following overview page: https://firebase.google.com/products/. The functions encompass, among other things, the storage of apps, including the app users’ personal data, e.g. content created by them or information relating to their interaction with the apps (known as ‘cloud computing’). Google Firebase also provides interfaces which permit interaction between the app users and other services, e.g. authentication using services such as Facebook or Twitter or an email-password combination. User interaction may be analysed using the ‘Firebase Analytics’ analysis service. Firebase Analytics is designed to record how users interact with an app. This involves recording events, such as the first time the app is opened, uninstallations, updates, crashes or app usage frequency. The events can also be used to record other user interests, e.g. in specific application functions or specific subject areas, in turn resulting in the creation of user profiles, which may, for example, be used as the basis for displaying advertising tailored to users. Google Firebase and the users’ personal data it processes may additionally be used in conjunction with other Google services, such as Google Analytics and Google marketing services (in this case, device-based information, such as ‘Android Advertising ID’ and ‘Advertising Identifier for iOS’, is processed in order to identify users’ mobile devices). If we ask users for their consent (e.g. as part of a cookie consent), the legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 a GDPR. Otherwise, users’ personal data is processed based on our legitimate interests (e.g. interest in analysing, optimising and profitably operating our website as established in Art. 6 Para. 1 f GDPR). Insofar as data is processed in the USA, we wish to advise that Google is certified under the Privacy Shield framework, meaning it promises to comply with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active). Google’s privacy policy is available at https://policies.google.com/privacy. Further information on how Google uses data for marketing purposes is available on the overview page: https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads?hl=de. If users wish to prevent interest-based advertising generated by Google marketing services, they may use Google’s settings and opt-out options: https://adssettings.google.com/
