Processing your data

Any personal information you have sent to us, e.g. via our contact form or newsletter registration (e.g. your name and contact data) is only processed for correspondence with you and solely for the purpose for which the data was provided.
We assure you that we will not pass on your personal information to third parties, unless we are obliged to do so legally or you have expressly given your consent. To the extent that we use the services of third parties to implement and handle processing processes, the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act and the Telemedia Act are complied with.

We will not forward your personal data to third parties unless

  • we have explicitly indicated this in the respective data processing description,
  • you have given your express consent to do this pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR,
  • passing on your data is necessary in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not forwarding your data,
  • there is a legal obligation for passing on data pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR and
  • if this is necessary in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR for the performance of a contract.

Furthermore, in performing our services we use external providers, who we have chosen carefully and commissioned in writing. They are bound by our instructions and are regularly monitored by us. If necessary, we have concluded contract processing agreements with them pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR. These include service providers for web hosting, sending e-mails, maintenance and servicing of our IT systems, etc. The service providers will not pass this data on to third parties.

Data processing from a visit to our website

When you call up our web pages, it is technically necessary for data to be transmitted to our web server via your Internet browser. The following data are recorded during an ongoing connection for communication between your internet browser and our web server:

  • The visited domain
  • Date and time of request
  • Website from which the file was requested
  • Access status (file transmitted, file not found, etc.)
  • Used web browser and operating system
  • IP address of requesting computer
  • Transmitted data volume

We collect the listed data in order to guarantee a smooth website connection set-up and to ensure that our website is comfortable to use. The log file also serves to evaluate system security and stability as well as administrative purposes. The legal basis for the temporary storage of data or log files is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

Newsletter

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on our website with regular information on our services and products, you must provide us with your e-mail address. We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to send the newsletter. This means that we will not send our newsletter to you by e-mail until you have expressly confirmed that you agree to receive it. In the first step, you will receive an e-mail with a link that you can use to confirm that as the owner of the corresponding e-mail address, you wish to receive newsletters in future. By confirming this, you give us your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR that we may use your personal data for the purpose of sending you the desired newsletter.

When you register for the newsletter, we not only save the e-mail address required for sending the newsletter, but also the IP address via which you registered for the newsletter as well as the date and time of registration and confirmation, in order to trace any misuse at a later point in time.

You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time via the link included in the newsletter or by sending an e-mail to the data officer mentioned above. After you have successfully unsubscribed, your e-mail address will be deleted from our newsletter distribution list immediately, as long as you have not given your express consent for the collected data to be used further or it is otherwise legally permissible to continue processing the data.

Storage period

Personal data made available to us on our website are stored only until the purpose for which they were provided has been fulfilled. To the extent that storage periods are regulated by commercial or tax law, the storage period for certain data may be considerably longer.

Links to other websites

Insofar as we refer or link to third parties' websites from our domain, we can assume no warranty or liability for the accuracy or completeness of the content or the data security of these websites. As we have no control over third parties' compliance with data protection regulations, you should separately review the privacy policies provided by them.

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies - text files that are stored on your computer and make it possible to analyze your use of the website. The information generated by these cookies on your use of this website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there. If the IP anonymization* function is activated on this website, however, your IP address will be abbreviated in advance by Google within the member states of the European Union and in other countries that have signed the treaty on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is transmitted to a server of Google in the United States and abbreviated there only in exceptional cases. Google uses this information on behalf of the operator of this website to analyze your usage of the website, to compile reports on website activities for us and to render further services associated with the usage of the website and the Internet. The IP address transmitted from your browser by Google Analytics is not merged with other data held by Google. You can prevent the storage of cookies by changing the settings on your browser software; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use all functions of this website in full. In addition, you can prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie relating to your use of this website (including your IP address) as well as processing this data by downloading the available browser plug-in and installing it.

* We have extended Google Analytics on our website with the code "anonymizeIp" to anonymize any collected IP addresses.

Google Web Fonts

This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google") to display fonts in a uniform way. Google Web Fonts allows us to use external fonts, so-called Google Fonts. When you visit our website, your web browser loads the required Google font into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly. This is necessary so that your browser can also display our texts in a visually improved form. If your browser does not support this function, a standard font is used by your computer to display the content. These web fonts are integrated via a server call, usually a Google server in the USA. This transmits the page of our website that you have visited to the server. Google also stores the IP address of the browser of the visitor's terminal device.

We use Google Web Fonts for optimization purposes, in particular to improve the use of our Internet presence for you and to make it more user-friendly. This also constitutes our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

Google has signed and is certified in accordance with the Privacy Shield agreement between the European Union and the United States. This means that Google is committed to complying with the standards and regulations of European data protection law.
