Definition of personal data

In principle, our data protection declaration should be simple and understandable for everyone. For this reason, our data protection declaration generally uses the official terms of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The official definitions are explained in Art. 4 GDPR.

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:

  • Visited domain
  • The date and time of the request
  • Page from which the file was requested
  • Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
  • The web browser, system language, operating system, and device type used
  • IP address of the requesting computer
  • The amount of data transferred

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

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 draw 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. The data is not evaluated in anonymous form except for statistical purposes. The data is not combined with data from other data sources.

Contact form and contact by e-mail

If you send us enquiries via contact form or e-mail, your details from the enquiry form or e-mail, including the contact data you have provided there, will be stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. You are required to provide an e-mail-address to contact us. Your name and telephone number are optional. Under no circumstances will we pass on this data without your consent. The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR and, if applicable, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, provided that your request is aimed at concluding a contract. Your data will be deleted after final processing of your inquiry, provided that there are no legal storage obligations that require the contrary. You can object to the processing of your personal data at any time in the case of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, an internet analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies” and web beacons. The information generated in relation to the use of this website is transferred by default to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We use Google Analytics only with IP anonymization enabled. This means that Google will reduce the IP-address of users within Member States of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, in order to make a connection to any personal information impossible. Google Inc., based in the USA, is certified for the US-European data protection agreement “Privacy Shield”, which guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU. Processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR and § 15 Para. 3 TMG respectively on the basis of our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behavior for optimization and marketing purposes.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyze your use of the website and to generate reports on website activity. Google also uses this information to provide other services related to the use of the website and the internet to the website operator. The IP-address sent by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data. The terms of use of Google Analytics and information on data protection can be accessed via the following links:

http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html and at http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/.

You can prevent cookies from being saved by adjusting the settings of your browser software accordingly. However, we must point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website without restrictions. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and analyzing your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Google Web Fonts

For uniform representation of fonts, this page uses web fonts provided by Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA („Google LLC“).When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts (so called Google Fonts) into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly. For this purpose, your browser has to establish a direct connection to Google LLC servers. Google LLC thus becomes aware that our web page was accessed via your IP-address. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our website. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer. Google LLC is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield agreement. By doing so, Google LLC commits to comply with the standards and regulations of the European data protection legislation.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called session cookies, which are automatically deleted after closing the browser. Other cookies remain stored on your end-device until you delete them or until the storage period expires. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit our website.

In some cases, cookies are used to simplify website processes by saving settings (e.g. the provision of already selected options). If personal data is also processed by individual cookies implemented by us, the processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR either for the execution of the contract or in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR to safeguard our legitimate interests in the best possible functionality of the website and a customer-friendly and effective design of the page visit.
