The con­trol­ler deci­des (alo­ne or tog­e­ther with others) about the pur­po­ses and means for the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data (e.g. names, con­tact details, etc.).


With­drawing your con­sent to data pro­ces­sing

Some data pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons can only be under­ta­ken with your express con­sent. You may with­draw your gran­ted con­sent at any time. The­re are no form requi­re­ments for with­drawing your con­sent and a simp­le email is suf­fi­ci­ent. The with­dra­wal of con­sent does not affect the legi­ti­ma­cy of the data pro­ces­sing which occur­red pri­or to the with­dra­wal.


Right to lodge a com­p­laint with a super­vi­so­ry aut­ho­ri­ty

As the data sub­ject, you have the right to lodge a com­p­laint with the com­pe­tent super­vi­so­ry aut­ho­ri­ty in the event of a vio­la­ti­on of data pro­tec­tion law. The com­pe­tent super­vi­so­ry aut­ho­ri­ty for mat­ters of data pro­tec­tion is the sta­te data pro­tec­tion com­mis­sio­ner (Lan­des­da­ten­schutz­be­auf­trag­ter) of the Ger­man sta­te in which our com­pa­ny has its regis­te­red office. Plea­se click the fol­lo­wing link for a list of the data pro­tec­tion com­mis­sio­ners and their con­tact details: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.


Right to data por­ta­bi­li­ty

You have the right to demand that data which are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly pro­ces­sed based on your con­sent or in the ful­filment of a con­tract are pro­vi­ded to you or to third par­ties in a machi­ne-read­a­ble for­mat. If you request that the data is pro­vi­ded direc­t­ly to ano­t­her con­trol­ler, this will only be done whe­re tech­ni­cal­ly fea­si­ble.


Right of access, rec­tifi­ca­ti­on, blo­cking, era­su­re

Under the app­li­ca­ble legal pro­vi­si­ons, you have the right to demand, at any time, access to your stored per­so­nal data (free of char­ge) and infor­ma­ti­on about their ori­gin and reci­pi­ent and the pur­po­se of the data pro­ces­sing; you also have the right (whe­re appro­pria­te) to demand rec­tifi­ca­ti­on, blo­cking or era­su­re of the­se data. With regard to this or if you have other ques­ti­ons on the mat­ter of per­so­nal data, you may con­tact us at any time. You can find our con­tact details in the legal noti­ce sec­tion (Imprint).


SSL/TLS encryp­ti­on

For secu­ri­ty rea­sons and in order to pro­tect con­fi­den­ti­al con­tent that you sub­mit to us as the web­site ope­ra­tor, our web­site uses SSL/TLS encryp­ti­on. This is done to pre­vent third par­ties from rea­ding the data you trans­mit to this web­site. If your con­nec­tion is encryp­ted, your browser’s address bar will dis­play “https://” and the brow­ser sta­tus bar will show a pad­lock sym­bol.


Ser­ver log files

The web­site pro­vi­der uses ser­ver log files to collect and store infor­ma­ti­on which is auto­ma­ti­cal­ly trans­mit­ted to us by your brow­ser. The­se are:

  • Brow­ser type and brow­ser ver­si­on
  • Your ope­ra­ting sys­tem
  • Refer­rer URL
  • Host­na­me of the acces­sing com­pu­ter
  • Time of the ser­ver request
  • IP address

The­se data are not com­bi­ned with data from other data sources. The data pro­ces­sing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which allows the pro­ces­sing of data for the per­for­mance of a con­tract or to take steps pri­or to ent­e­ring into a con­tract.


Con­tact form

Data sub­mit­ted through con­tact forms are stored tog­e­ther with your con­tact details for the pur­po­se of pro­ces­sing your inqui­ry and to be rea­dy for any sub­se­quent ques­ti­ons. The­se data will not be pas­sed on except with your con­sent.

The data you enter in the con­tact form are pro­ces­sed exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of your con­sent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You may with­draw your gran­ted con­sent at any time. The­re are no form requi­re­ments for with­drawing your con­sent and a simp­le email is suf­fi­ci­ent. The with­dra­wal of con­sent does not affect the legi­ti­ma­cy of the data pro­ces­sing which occur­red pri­or to the with­dra­wal.

Data sub­mit­ted via the con­tact form remain with us until you request the era­su­re, with­draw your con­sent to their sto­rage or the­re is no lon­ger any need for sto­ring the data. This has no effect on man­dato­ry pro­vi­si­ons of the law, in par­ti­cu­lar with regard to sta­tuto­ry reten­ti­on peri­ods.


You­Tube

Our web­site uses You­Tube plugins to inte­gra­te and dis­play video con­tent. The video por­tal is ope­ra­ted by You­Tube, LLC, 901 Cher­ry Ave., San Bru­no, CA 94066, USA.

Cal­ling up a web­page which inclu­des an inte­gra­ted You­Tube plugin will estab­lish a con­nec­tion to the ser­vers of You­Tube. You­Tube will the­re­fo­re learn which of our web­pages you have visi­ted.

If you are log­ged into your You­Tube account, You­Tube will be enab­led to attri­bu­te your sur­fing activi­ties direc­t­ly to your per­so­nal pro­fi­le. You can avo­id this by first log­ging out from your account.

The use of You­Tube ser­ves to impro­ve the attrac­tiveness of our online pre­sence. This con­sti­tu­tes a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest wit­hin the mea­ning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

For details on the hand­ling of user data, plea­se refer to the You­Tube pri­va­cy poli­cy under: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en&gl=en.


Coo­kies

This web­site uses coo­kies. Coo­kies are small text files which are stored on your device (computer/smartphone/tablet) by your web brow­ser. Coo­kies help us to make our web­site more user-fri­end­ly, more effec­tive and more secu­re.

Some coo­kies are cal­led “ses­si­on coo­kies”. Ses­si­on coo­kies are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted once the brow­ser ses­si­on is con­clu­ded. Other coo­kies howe­ver remain on your device until you dele­te them yours­elf. The­se coo­kies help us to reco­gnise you when you return to our web­site.

Modern web brow­sers allow you to moni­tor, restrict or pre­vent the pla­cing of coo­kies. Many web brow­sers can be con­fi­gu­red to dele­te coo­kies auto­ma­ti­cal­ly once the pro­gram­me is clo­sed. Deac­tivat­ing coo­kies can have the con­se­quence of limi­t­ing the func­tio­n­a­li­ty of our web­site.

Coo­kies which are requi­red to car­ry out elec­tro­nic com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on or to pro­vi­de cer­tain func­tions you request (e.g. shop­ping cart) are pla­ced in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. As the ope­ra­tor of this web­site, we have a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in sto­ring coo­kies to enab­le us to opti­mi­se the pro­vi­si­on of our ser­vices and to eli­mi­na­te any tech­ni­cal mal­func­tions. The pla­ce­ment of other coo­kies (e.g. for ana­ly­ti­cal pur­po­ses) is regu­la­ted sepa­r­ate­ly in this data pri­va­cy state­ment.


Use of script libra­ries (Goog­le Web Fonts)

We use script and font libra­ries on this web­site to ensu­re the cor­rect and aes­the­ti­cal­ly plea­sing pre­sen­ta­ti­on of our con­tent by the various dif­fe­rent brow­sers, such as Goog­le Web Fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). In order to avo­id repeated­ly having to re-load data, Goog­le Web Fonts will be loa­ded into the cache of your brow­ser. If your brow­ser does not sup­port Goog­le Web Fonts or if it pre­vents this access, the con­tents will be shown in the stan­dard font.

Cal­ling up script or font libra­ries will auto­ma­ti­cal­ly estab­lish a con­nec­tion to the ope­ra­tor of the libra­ry. It is theo­re­ti­cal­ly pos­si­ble – though cur­r­ent­ly unclear whe­ther or not this would hap­pen and for which pur­po­ses – that the ope­ra­tors of the­se libra­ries collect data.

For the data pri­va­cy poli­cy of the libra­ry ope­ra­tor Goog­le, plea­se visit: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/


Use of Ado­be Typekit

We use Ado­be Typekit for the visu­al design of our web­site. Typekit is a ser­vice pro­vi­ded by Ado­be Sys­tems Soft­ware Ire­land Ltd., which grants us access to a font libra­ry. In order to inte­gra­te the fonts used by us, your brow­ser has to estab­lish a con­nec­tion to the Ado­be ser­ver in the USA and down­load the font requi­red for our web­site. This will tell Ado­be that our web­site has been acces­sed from your IP address. For fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on on Ado­be Typekit, plea­se refer to the Ado­be pri­va­cy noti­ce: www.adobe.com/privacy/typekit.html


Use of Goog­le Maps

This web­site uses the Goog­le Maps API for the visu­al dis­play of geo­gra­phi­cal infor­ma­ti­on. When using Goog­le maps, Goog­le also collec­ts, pro­ces­ses and uses data rela­ting to the use of the map func­tions by the visi­tors. For fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on on Google’s data pro­ces­sing prac­tices, plea­se refer to the Goog­le pri­va­cy poli­cy. Under this link, you will also be able to access and chan­ge your per­so­nal data pri­va­cy set­tings.

Goog­le Ana­ly­tics

Our web­site uses func­tions of the web ana­ly­tics pro­vi­der Goog­le Ana­ly­tics. The web ana­ly­tics ser­vices are pro­vi­ded by Goog­le LLC 1600 Amphi­thea­t­re Park­way Moun­tain View, CA 94043, USA.

Goog­le Ana­ly­tics uses “coo­kies”. Coo­kies are small web files stored by your web brow­ser on your device (com­pu­ter, smart­pho­ne, tablet) to enab­le your use of web­sites. The infor­ma­ti­on gene­ra­ted by the coo­kie about your use of our web­site is trans­fer­red to and stored on a Goog­le ser­ver. The­se ser­vers are gene­ral­ly loca­ted in the USA.

Goog­le Ana­ly­tics coo­kies are pla­ced in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. As the ope­ra­tor of this web­site, we have a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in ana­ly­sing user beha­viour in order to opti­mi­se our web­site and also (if app­li­ca­ble) our adver­ti­sing.

IP anony­mi­za­ti­on

We use Goog­le Ana­ly­tics in com­bi­na­ti­on with the IP anony­mi­za­ti­on func­tion. It ensu­res that, if you are loca­ted in a Mem­ber Sta­te of the European Uni­on or any other sta­te par­ty to the Agree­ment on the European Eco­no­mic Area, Goog­le will trun­ca­te your IP address befo­re it is trans­fer­red to the USA. The­re may be excep­tio­nal cases whe­re Goog­le will send the full IP address to a US ser­ver and trun­ca­te it the­re. Goog­le will use this infor­ma­ti­on at our behest in order to ana­ly­se your use of the web­site, pre­pa­re reports about web­site activi­ties and to pro­vi­de us with other ser­vices rela­ting to web­site and Inter­net use. The IP address trans­fer­red by Goog­le Ana­ly­tics is not com­bi­ned with other Goog­le data.

Brow­ser Plugin

You can pre­vent your brow­ser from pla­cing coo­kies, but this may limit some of the func­tio­n­a­li­ty of our web­site. You can also pre­vent the collec­tion of data rela­ting to your web­site use (inclu­ding your IP address) and the sub­se­quent pro­ces­sing by Goog­le, by down­loa­ding and instal­ling the brow­ser plugin avail­ab­le under the fol­lo­wing link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Objec­ting to the collec­tion of data

You can pre­vent Goog­le Ana­ly­tics from collec­ting your data by cli­cking the fol­lo­wing link. This will cau­se the pla­ce­ment of an opt-out coo­kie which will pre­vent the collec­tion of your data during future visits to our web­site: Deac­tiva­te Goog­le Ana­ly­tics.

Com­mis­sio­ned data pro­ces­sing

In order to ful­ly com­ply with the sta­tuto­ry data pro­tec­tion requi­re­ments, we have con­clu­ded a data pro­ces­sor agree­ment with Goog­le.

Demo­gra­phics and Goog­le Ana­ly­tics

Our web­site uses the Goog­le Ana­ly­tics “Demo­gra­phics” fea­ture. It enab­les the crea­ti­on of reports con­tai­ning infor­ma­ti­on on the age, gen­der and inte­rests of the page users. The­se data ori­gi­na­te from Google’s inte­rest-spe­ci­fic adver­ti­sing and user data pro­vi­ded by third-par­ty pro­vi­ders. It is impos­si­ble to attri­bu­te the­se data to a spe­ci­fic per­son. You can deac­tiva­te this func­tion at any time. You can do this through the set­tings in your Goog­le account or by issuing a blan­ket objec­tion to the use of your data by Goog­le Ana­ly­tics as descri­bed under “Objec­ting to the collec­tion of data”.


Chan­ges to our data pri­va­cy pro­vi­si­ons
