We observe European regulations on data protection and privacy law and the national provisions that arise from them in collecting, storing, and processing personal data.

 

4. Collection and processing of your personal data

 

When you visit our websites, we automatically store on an anonymized basis the name of your Internet service provider, the website from which you visit us, the Web pages you visit when you are on our site, websites you visit from our site, and the date and duration of your visit. We may analyze and interpret this information on an anonymized basis. Further personal data are not collected or stored unless you expressly permit us to do so. Our data protection information applies exclusively to the use of our websites, not to your activities on the websites of social networks or other providers that you may be able to reach using the links on our websites. Please consult these providers’ websites for information on their privacy and data protection policies.

Where permissible by law, we disclaim any and all liability for damage and/or losses arising from the use of the linked websites.

We do not store other personal data unless you communicate these data to us, for example within the scope of a contact form, a survey, a prize competition, registration, or to perform a contract, and even in these cases we do so only to the extent that we are permitted to do so based on your consent or pursuant to the applicable legal provisions (see “Legal basis for processing”).

There is no legal or contractual obligation for you to provide your personal data. However, it is possible that certain functions of our website may depend on the provision of personal data. If you do not provide personal data in these cases, this may cause certain functions to be restricted or unavailable.

 

5. Purposes of processing of personal data

 

Your personal data are used only for the purpose for which you have voluntarily provided these data to us and to protect our IT systems against attacks and other unlawful actions. Should you have communicated further personal data to us, for example within the scope of a contact form, a survey, a prize competition, registration, or to perform a contract, we process these data for the purposes mentioned, for purposes of customer management and – to the extent necessary – for purposes of executing and billing for any business transactions, in each case in the scope necessary to that end. We obligate our employees and service providers to observe the strictest confidentiality.

 

6. Legal basis for processing

 

Where you have consented to our processing of your personal data, this consent constitutes the legal basis for the processing (point (a) of Article 6(1) GDPR).

Point (b) of Article 6(1) GDPR forms the legal basis for processing of personal data for the purpose of taking steps prior to entering into a contract or performing a contract with you.

Where the processing of your personal data is necessary to fulfill our legal obligations (e.g., to store data), we are authorized to do so pursuant to point (c) of Article 6(1) GDPR.

Beyond that, we process personal data for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party in accordance with point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR. Maintaining the functionality of our IT systems, marketing our own and third-party products and services, and the legally required documentation of business contacts constitute such legitimate interests.

 

7. Disclosure of personal data to third parties

 

Except in the cases indicated separately, we share your personal data with third parties only if

·         you have consented pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) GDPR,

·         this is necessary for the performance of a contract with you pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1) GDPR, or

·         in the event that there is a statutory obligation of disclosure pursuant to point (c) of Article 6(1) GDPR.

·         this takes place for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller pursuant to point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR. Examples include:

– Reviewing and optimizing procedures for analyzing demand for purposes of directly approaching customers

– Optimization and demand-driven design of the website

– Advertising or market and opinion research, to the extent that you have not objected to the use of your data

– Safeguarding our company’s IT security and IT operations

– Preventing and investigating criminal acts

– Measures for managing the business and further developing services and products

 

If personal data are transferred to a third country outside the European Economic Area (EEA) or to an international organization, this is stated separately.

 

8. Processing of personal data for the purpose of sending newsletters

 

We are happy to keep you informed of current news on the basis of your consent (point (a) of Article 6(1) GDPR) via the specific newsletter offered on the website.

For us to send out a newsletter, you need to provide us with the required information indicated (e.g., name and e-mail address). You can also enter and submit further information voluntarily. After you have communicated your e-mail address to us, you will receive an e-mail from us at the e-mail address you provided, asking you to click a confirmation link to verify the e-mail address you provided (known as a “double opt-in” process).

We will store your data only for purposes of sending out our newsletter. We will also store your IP address and the date when you registered so we have documentation that you signed up for the newsletter in case of any doubt. To measure our newsletters’ success, we also collect information on whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened, and which links are clicked.

You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in the newsletter footer. 

 

9. Use of the contact form

 

When you contact us (e.g., via contact forms), we store your data for purposes of processing your inquiry (point (b) of Article 6(1) GDPR) and in the event that further correspondence should take place.  Otherwise, your data are erased after your matter is processed. This does not apply to data for which there are statutory or otherwise stipulated obligations of storage.

Like the use of cookies, rejection or deletion of cookies is also tied to the device used and, in addition, to the relevant browser that is used. This means you need to reject or delete cookies separately for each of your devices and, if you use multiple browsers, for each browser as well.

 

11. Use of Google Analytics

 

We use the “Google Analytics” Web analytics service on our website. The service provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This means that Google truncates (shortens) your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states that are signatories to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transferring it to the United States. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyze your use of the website, compile reports on website activity, and provide the website operator with further services associated with the use of the website and of the Internet.

We have entered into a contract for processing of data with Google.

You can object to the processing of data by Google at any time by using the opt-out plugin: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de or via the ad display settings: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated

 

12. Google Web Fonts

 

This page uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform presentation of fonts. When calling up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly. For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to Google’s servers. As a result, Google becomes aware that this website was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google WebFonts is based on Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f GDPR.

The website operator has a legitimate interest in the uniform presentation of the font image on its website. If a corresponding consent has been requested (for example, consent to the storage of cookies), the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 paragraph 1 letter A GDPR; the consent is revocable at any time.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer. For more information about Google Web Fonts, see https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and Google’s privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en

We erase your personal data as soon as the purpose for which we have collected and processed them ceases to apply.

Withdrawal of consent also does not affect the possible further processing of these data on a different legal basis, for example to meet legal obligations (see the section titled “Legal basis for processing.”
