1. Data processing when visiting our website

In the merely informative use of our website, ie if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only process the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. If you wish to view our website, we collect the following data which is technically necessary for us to inform you about our website and to ensure its stability and security (legal basis is Article 6 (1) of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR “)):

    • Date and time of the request
    • Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)

    • each transferred amount of data
    • Website from which the request comes
    • browser
    • Operating system and its interface
    • Language and version of the browser software

The data is stored for a period of 7 days and then automatically deleted.

If we commission third parties to process data on the basis of a so-called “contract processing contract”, this is done on the basis of Art. 28 GDPR.

Furthermore, we use cookies and tracking tools for our website. The exact procedures that are used and how your data is used will be explained in more detail in the following Sections.

2. Data processing when contacting us

When you contact us by e-mail or through our online contact form, we will collect the information you have provided to answer your questions. We delete the data that arises in this context after the storage is no longer required, or limit the processing if there are statutory retention requirements.

In addition, data will only be stored for as long as this is required for the performance of contractual or legal obligations.

The legal basis for this data processing via the online contact form is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future. The lawfulness of the processing of your data until the revocation remains unaffected.

3. Use of social plug-ins

We use the social media plug-ins from Facebook (“Like-Button”), LinkedIn, Xing, Instagram and Twitter. Through the plug-ins we offer you the opportunity to interact with the social networks and other users. This allows us to improve the website and make it more interesting. The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

When using the social plug-ins, we use the so-called two-click solution: If you visit the website, initially no personal data will be passed on to the providers of the plug-ins. Only if you click on the marked field of the plug-in, the plug-in provider will get your IP address and the information that you are calling the website. In the case of Facebook, according to the respective providers in Germany, the IP address is anonymized immediately after collection.

We have no influence on the data processing operations of the plug-in providers. We also have no information to delete the data collected by the plug-in provider.

The data transfer occurs regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and/ or logged in. If you are logged into the plug-in provider, your data collected from us will be assigned directly to your existing account with the plug-in provider. If you press the activated button, for example, if you link the page, the plug-in provider also stores this information in your user account and shares it publicly with your contacts. We recommend logging out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as this will prevent you from being assigned to your profile with the plug-in provider.

For more information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the privacy statements of these providers provided below. There you will also find further information about your rights and settings options for the protection of your privacy:

8. Data protection regulations for the use and use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

The controller has integrated the component Google Analytics (with anonymization function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data on which website an affected person has come to a website (so-called referrers), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for which length of stay a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The controller uses the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp” for web analytics via Google Analytics. This addendum will shorten and anonymise the IP address of the data subject of the person concerned if Google accesses our website from a Member State of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze visitor flows on our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, to compile for us online reports showing the activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.

Google Analytics uses a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are, has already been explained above. By using this cookie Google is enabled to analyze the usage of our website. Each time one of the pages of this website is accessed by the controller and a Google Analytics component has been integrated into it, the internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically initiated by the respective Google Analytics component To submit data to Google for the purposes of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google receives information about personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently make commission settlements possible.

The cookie stores personally identifiable information, such as access time, the location from which access was made and the frequency of site visits by the data subject. Each time you visit our website, your personal information, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal information is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may transfer this personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.

The affected person can prevent the setting of cookies through our website, as shown above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the data subject has the possibility of objecting to and preventing the collection of the data generated by Google Analytics for the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. To do this, the person must download and install a browser add-on at This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about website visits may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google as a contradiction. If the data subject’s information technology system is later deleted, formatted or reinstalled, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on to disable Google Analytics. Provided

If the browser add-on is being uninstalled or disabled by the data subject or any other person within their sphere of control, it is possible to reinstall or re-enable the browser add-on.
