  • Date and time of website access,
  • Name and URL of the retrieved file,
  • Website from which our site was accessed (referral URL),

  • Further administrative purposes.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data is Art. 6 (1), sentence 1, lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest is derived from the above-listed purposes for data collection. We generally do not use collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person. However, we reserve the right to do so if required to investigate improper page access.

§ 5 Newsletter
(1) With your consent, you can subscribe to our newsletter, with which we inform you about our current interesting offers. The goods and services purchased are named in the declaration of consent.
(2) To register for our newsletter, we use the so-called double-opt-in process. This means that after you register, we send an email to the email address you gave asking for confirmation that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration within [24 hours], your information is locked and automatically deleted after a month. In addition, we save the IP addresses you used and the times of registration and confirmation.

When exercising the right of revocation, we ask you to cite the reasons why we should not process your personal information as we have previously done. In the case of a justified revocation, we will examine the situation and either stop or adjust the data processing or convey to you our protection-worthy and necessary reasons for continuing the processing.

§ 7 Use of Analytics
(1) This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information about your use of this website generated by the cookie is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will first be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or other contracting member states of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the complete IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information in order to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports about website activities and to provide further services connected with website use and internet use for the website operator.
(2) The IP address transmitted from your browser within Google Analytics is not connected with other data from Google.
(3) You can prevent the storage of cookies by configuring your browser software accordingly; please note, however, that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. In addition, you can prevent the capture of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) for Google and the processing of these data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
(4) This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This ensures that IP addresses are further processed in shortened form, which excludes the possibility of personal association. Any personal connection to the data collected about you will therefore be immediately excluded and the personal data will be immediately deleted.
(5) We use Google Analytics in order to analyse use of our website and regularly improve it. We use the statistics obtained to improve our products and make them more interesting to you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data are transmitted to the USA, Google has committed itself to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.
(6) Information about the third-party provider: Google LLC 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043; Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001. Terms of use: https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/html; overview of data protection: https://privacy.google.com/businesses/compliance/#?modal_active=none, and the Data Protection Statement: https://policies.google.com/privacy.

§ 8 Use of social media plug-ins
(1) We currently use the following social media links: Matomo, Twitter, XING, LinkedIn, YouTube.
(2) We have no influence on the data captured or the data processing procedures, nor do we know the entire scope of data collection, the purpose of processing or the retention periods. We also have no information about the deletion of the collected data by the linked provider.
(3) You can find more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by the plug-in provider in their data protection statements, which we give below. You can also find further information there on your rights in this regard and the setting options to protect your privacy.
(4) Matomo (formerly Piwik)
This site uses the Open Source web analytics service Matomo. Matomo uses so-called "cookies.” These are text files that are saved on your computer and allow for an analysis of your use of the website. For this purpose, the information generated by the cookie about the use of this website will be stored on our server. The IP address is anonymized prior to storage.
Matomo cookies will remain on your terminal device until you delete them.
Matomo cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1), lit. f GDPR. The operator of this website has a legitimate interest in the anonymized analysis of user behavior in order to optimize both, the services offered on its website as well as its advertising.
The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website will not be shared with third parties. You may prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser software; however, please be advised that in this case, you might not be able to use all functions of this website to the full extent.
If you do not agree to the storage and use of your data, you can disable the storage and use here. In this case, an opt-out cookie will be stored in your browser that prevents Matomo from saving user data. If you delete your cookies, the Matomo opt-out cookie will be deleted as well, and the opt-out must be reactivated when you return to our website.
(5) Integration of YouTube videos
Our online content may include YouTube videos, which are stored on YouTube and can be played directly from our website. YouTube is another service from Google. YouTube videos are all included in the "Advanced Data Protection Mode", i.e. no user data are transmitted to YouTube if users do not play the videos. The data listed below is transmitted only when a user plays the videos. We have no influence on this data transfer.
When the website is visited and a video is played, YouTube receives the information that the user has accessed the corresponding sub-page of our online offerings. In addition, further information about the use of these online offerings (including the user's IP address) will be transmitted to a YouTube server in San Bruno, California, USA and stored there. (The physical address for YouTube is: 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066.) This occurs regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account into which the user is logged or whether no user account exists. If the user is logged into YouTube, the user data will be directly associated with the user account. If a user does not want YouTube to associate the video with his or her profile, he or she must therefore log out prior to clicking the button. YouTube stores data as usage profiles and utilizes them for purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-based design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) for the delivery of targeted advertising and to inform other users of the social network about the activities of the user with regard to our online offerings. Users have the right to object to the generation of these profiles, whereby, for the exercise thereof, they will have to contact YouTube.
Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by YouTube can be found in the privacy policy, along with additional information about rights and setting options for privacy protection: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.
YouTube will also process your personal data in the United States and is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield: https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
