Privacy Policy

General notice and mandatory information

The following information is intended to inform you about the nature, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal information on our website.

Data Collection And Reporting

The following information is intended to inform you about the nature, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal information on our website.

Data collection and logging

By using our website, you consent to the collection, processing and use of data as described below. Our website can generally be visited without registration. In the process, data such as pages accessed or the name of the file accessed, date and time are stored for statistical purposes without this data being directly related to your person. Personal data, in particular name, address or e-mail address are collected as far as possible on a voluntary basis. No data will be passed on to third parties without your consent.

If personal data is required to use special offers on our website, this data will be stored on servers within the scope of the EU-DSGVO and processed for the purpose of the offer or anonymously for statistical purposes. If necessary, the data will be forwarded to the responsible company within our group of companies. The data will not be forwarded to other third parties without your consent.

You provide us with the personal data voluntarily for the use of the specific service and you thereby agree to the present scope of use.

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Some data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. A revocation of your already given consent is possible at any time. An informal communication by e-mail is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or to third parties. The data will be provided in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible party, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.

Right to information, correction, blocking, deletion

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, the origin of the data, their recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data. In this regard, and also for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time via the contact options listed in the imprint.

SSL or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content that you send to us as site operator, our website uses SSL or TLS encryption. This means that data you transmit via this website cannot be read by third parties. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the "https://" address line of your browser and the lock symbol in the browser line.

Data collection and logging (server log files)

In server log files, the provider of the website automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address

There is no merging of this data with other data sources. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

For reasons of technical security, in particular to defend against attempted attacks on our web server, we store this data for a short period of time. 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 anonymized by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a link to the individual user, even with the aid of additional information. The data is also processed anonymously for statistical purposes; it is not compared with other data or passed on to third parties, even in part.

Contact form

Data transmitted via contact form will be stored, including your contact data, in order to be able to process your inquiry or to be available for follow-up questions. This data will not be passed on without your consent.

The data is provided to us by you on a voluntary basis to process your request. The processing of the data entered in the contact form is based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). A revocation of your already given consent is possible at any time. An informal communication by e-mail is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Data transmitted via the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or there is no longer any need to store it. Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

Cookies

Our website uses cookies. These are small text files that your web browser stores on your terminal device. Cookies help us to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure.

Some cookies are "session cookies." Such cookies are deleted by themselves after the end of your browser session. In contrast, other cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them yourself. Such cookies help us to recognize you when you return to our website.

With a modern web browser, you can monitor, restrict or prevent the setting of cookies. Many web browsers can be configured to automatically delete cookies when you close the program. Disabling cookies may result in limited functionality of our website.

The setting of cookies, which are necessary for the exercise of electronic communication processes or the provision of certain functions desired by you (e.g. shopping cart), is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and smooth provision of our services. Insofar as the setting of other cookies (e.g. for analysis functions) takes place, these are treated separately in this data protection declaration.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics on our website. This is a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter only referred to as "Google".

Scope of processing

Google Analytics uses cookies that enable an analysis of your use of our websites. The information collected by means of the cookies about your use of this website (usage and user-related information, such as IP address, location, time or frequency of visits to our website) is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, we use Google Analytics with the so-called anonymization function. Through this function, Google already shortens the IP address within the EU or EEA. Google states not to connect your IP address with other data. In addition, Google provides further data protection information for you at https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners, e.g. on the options for preventing data use. In addition, Google offers a so-called deactivation add-on at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de along with further information on this. This add-on can be installed with standard Internet browsers and offers you further control over the data that Google collects when you visit our website. The add-on tells the JavaScript (ga.js) of Google Analytics that information about the visit to our website should not be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, this does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analytics services. If and which other web analytics services are used by us, you will of course also find out in this privacy policy.

Purposes of processing

On our behalf, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website and compiling reports on website activity. The reports provided by Google Analytics are used to analyze the performance of our website and the success of our marketing campaigns.

Recipient

The recipient of the data is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland as an order processor. We have concluded an order processing agreement with Google for this purpose. Google LLC, based in California, USA, and, if applicable, US authorities may access the data stored by Google.

Transmission to third countries

A transfer of data to the USA cannot be ruled out.

Storage period

The data sent by us and linked to cookies are automatically deleted after 12 months. The deletion of data whose retention period has been reached takes place automatically once a month.

Legal basis

The Google Analytics service is used to analyze the usage behavior of our website. The legal basis is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG).

Revocation option

As an alternative to the aforementioned deactivation add-on, please click this https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de to prevent the collection by Google Analytics within this website in the future. This will place an opt-out cookie on your device. If you delete your cookies, you must click this link again.

Google Tag Manager

We have concluded an order processing agreement with Google. The Google Tag Manager is an auxiliary service and only processes personal data itself for technically necessary purposes. The Google Tag Manager takes care of loading other components, which in turn may collect data. The Google Tag Manager does not access this data.

Google Maps

This site uses the map service Google Maps. The provider is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We have no influence on this data transmission. If Google Maps is activated, Google may use Google Fonts for the purpose of uniform display of fonts. When calling up Google Maps, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers and an easy location of the places indicated by us on the website. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user's terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TTDSG. The consent can be revoked at any time.

In addition, the use of Google Maps and the information obtained via Google Maps is subject to the Google Terms of Use https://policies.google.com/terms?gl=DE&hl=de and the Terms and Conditions for Google Maps https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/help/terms_maps.html

In addition, Google offers a website at

https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated

https://policies.google.com/privacy

offers further information.

Cookiebot

We use the consent management service Cookiebot, provided by Usercentrics A/S, Havnegade 39, 1058 Copenhagen, Denmark (Usercentrics). This allows us to obtain and manage consent from website users for data processing. The processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation (Article 7 (1) DSGVO) to which we are subject (Article 6 (1) p. 1 lit. c DSGVO). For this purpose, the following data is processed with the help of cookies:

Your IP address (the last three digits are set to '0'). Date and time of consent. Browser information URL from which the consent was sent. An anonymous, random and encrypted key Your end-user consent status, as proof of consent.

The key and consent status are stored in the browser for 12 months using the "CookieConsent" cookie. This preserves your cookie preference for subsequent page requests. With the help of the key, their consent can be proven and tracked.

The functionality of the website is not guaranteed without the processing.

Usercentrics is a recipient of your personal data and acts as a processor for us.

The processing takes place in the European Union. You can find more information about objection and removal options vis-à-vis Usercentrics at: https://www.cookiebot.com/de/privacy-policy/

Your personal data will be deleted consecutively after 12 months or immediately after the termination of the contract between us and Usercentrics.

Fonts

This site uses so-called web fonts for the uniform display of fonts. These are installed locally on our servers and do not establish connections to other servers.

Note on data transfer to the USA and other third countries

Among other things, we use tools from companies based in the USA or other third countries that are not secure under data protection law. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to these third countries and processed there. We would like to point out that no level of data protection comparable to that in the EU can be guaranteed in these countries. For example, US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as a data subject being able to take legal action against this. It can therefore not be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. intelligence services) process, evaluate and permanently store your data located on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.

IP anonymization

We use Google Analytics in conjunction with the IP anonymization function. It ensures that Google truncates your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transmission to the USA. There may be exceptional cases in which Google transfers the full IP address to a server in the USA and shortens it there. On our behalf, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing us with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

Browser Plugin

The setting of cookies by your web browser can be prevented. However, some functions of our website may be restricted as a result. Likewise, you can prevent the collection of data relating to your website usage, including your IP address, together with subsequent processing by Google. This is possible by downloading and installing the browser plugin accessible via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

Objection to data collection

You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set that will prevent the collection of your data during future visits to our website: Disable Google Analytics.

For details on how Google Analytics handles user data, please see Google's privacy policy:

https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de

Order processing

To fully comply with the legal data protection requirements, we have concluded an order processing agreement with Google. Demographic characteristics with Google Analytics. Our website uses the "demographic characteristics" feature of Google Analytics. It can be used to create reports that contain statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as visitor data from third-party providers. It is not possible to assign the data to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time. This is possible via the ad settings in your Google account or by generally prohibiting the collection of your data by Google Analytics, as explained in the item "Objection to data collection".

Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. Details can be found here: https://privacy.google.com/businesses/gdprcontrollerterms/ and https://privacy.google.com/businesses/gdprcontrollerterms/sccs/

More information on the handling of user data can be found in Google's privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de

Leadinfo

We use the lead generation service provided by Leadinfo B.V., Rotterdam, The Netherlands, which recognizes
visits of companies to our website based on IP-addresses and shows us related publicly available information,
such as company names or addresses. In addition, Leadinfo places two first-party cookies for providing
