2. Cookies

a)
We use cookies on our website. These are small files that are automatically created by your browser and stored on your end device (laptop, tablet, smartphone or similar) when you visit our website. Cookies do not cause any damage to your end device, nor do they contain any viruses, Trojans or other malware.

The cookie stores information that arises in connection with the specific end device used. However, this does not mean that we gain direct knowledge of your identity.

We are using the following cookies:

  • Technically necessary cookies
  • Other temporary cookies (e.g. cookies for analysis purposes or third-party cookies)

Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or a notice is always displayed before a new cookie is created. However, the complete deactivation of cookies may mean that you may not be able to use all the functions of our website.

b)
The use of cookies on the one hand serves to make the use of our website more pleasant for you.

We use cookies on our website that are absolutely necessary to navigate the website, use basic functions and ensure the security of the website; they do not collect information about you for marketing purposes, nor do they store which web pages you have visited ("technically necessary cookies").

In addition, we also use other temporary cookies which are stored on your end device for a certain fixed period of time in order to optimize our user-friendliness. If you visit our website again to use our services, the system automatically recognizes that you have already visited our website and which entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.

In terms of their function, a distinction is again made with regard to cookies that are not technically necessary:

  • Analytics cookies: Analytics cookies collect information that helps us understand how our visitors use our website so that we can improve the user experience. We use analytics cookies from Google Analytics (Section 5 of this policy) and Hotjar (Section 6 of this policy). For more information about cookies, please see the aforementioned sections.

c)
The data processed by the technically necessary cookies are required for the aforementioned purposes to protect our legitimate interests as well as those of third parties pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f GDPR. These purposes also include our legitimate interest in processing the collected data.

The legal basis for the use of cookies that are not technically necessary and for the transfer of data to the respective third-party service providers is provided by Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR on the basis of the consent obtained from you.

d)
Technically necessary cookies are automatically deleted at the end of the session. Information about the storage period of non-technically necessary cookies is provided directly in the cookie banner or by the providers of the cookies described in more detail below.

You may prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser software; however, please note that if you do so, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can delete already stored cookies at any time in the security settings of your browser.

3. Embedded YouTube videos

a)
We have embedded YouTube videos in our online offer, which are stored on http://www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from our website. YouTube is a service of Google Ireland Ltd. The videos are all embedded in "extended data protection mode", i.e. no data about you as a user is transmitted to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Initially, only a preview image loaded from our website's server is displayed.

Only when you play the videos will the data mentioned under III.1 in particular be transferred. We have no control over this data transmission. The data transfer takes place regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account via which you are logged in or whether there is no user account. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account.

b)
We use such YouTube plug-ins on our website in order to make our company better known through them.

YouTube stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an analysis is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide tailored advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website.

c)/d)
The legal basis for the use of the plug-in is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f GDPR. The underlying advertising purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the meaning of the GDPR.

If you do not want YouTube to associate the video with your profile, you must log out of YouTube before starting the video.

You also have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.

For more information on data processing, in particular also on the legal basis and storage period by YouTube, please refer to the provider's privacy policy. There you will also find further information about your rights and setting options to protect your privacy: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

You can find the privacy policy of the third-party provider here: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

4. Contact forms

a)
There are several contact forms on our website that can be used to contact us electronically, as well as a call-back service if you would like us to contact you by telephone. If you use this option, the data entered in the online form will be transmitted to us and stored.

The required fields for contacting us electronically or by telephone are marked with an asterisk (*). This is your e-mail address. If you provide us with additional data ( last name, first name, etc.), this is done voluntarily.

b)
The data is processed to allow you to contact us and to process your request, to prevent misuse of the contact form or the call-back service and to ensure the security of our IT systems.

c)
The legal basis for the processing of the required fields is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f GDPR. The aforementioned purpose also constitutes the legitimate interest in processing the data. If the e-mail or call-back request is aimed at concluding a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. b GDPR.

The legal basis for the processing of the data you have voluntarily provided to us is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a GDPR.

d)
The data is erased as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. For the personal data entered in the contact form or the call-back service, this is the case when the respective communication with you has ended. The communication is deemed to have ended when the circumstances indicate that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified. If a contract is concluded, the data will also be stored until the expiry of the statutory retention periods (6 years after the end of the year in which the contract was terminated) and then deleted, unless we are obliged to store the data for a longer period due to documentation obligations under tax and commercial law (the German Commercial Code (HGB), the German Criminal Code (StGB) or the German Tax Code (AO)) or if you have consented to a longer storage period in accordance with Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a GDPR.

In addition, you have the option to revoke your consent to the processing of the voluntarily provided personal data at any time. To do so, simply contact us via the contact information mentioned in Section I. In such a case, the communication cannot be continued. The lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the date of revocation is not affected.

5. Google Analytics

a)
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Ltd. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer in order to help the website analyse your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, in the event that IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". This means that IP addresses are processed in abbreviated form, and personal references can thus be ruled out. Insofar as the data collected about you is personally identifiable, this is immediately excluded and the personal data is deleted immediately.

The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

b)
We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. The statistics obtained allow us to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user.

c)
The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a GDPR. Prior to the use of Google Analytics, we obtain your consent for the processing of the data and refer you to this privacy policy.

d)
The data will be stored for a maximum of two years.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent.

You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser add-on available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent the data collection by Google Analytics by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie will be installed, which prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must re-set the opt-out cookie.

IV. Cooperation with processors and third parties

In some cases, we use external service providers (processors) to process your data. These have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are bound by instructions and are regularly monitored. They are external service providers who support us from a technical point of view (web hosters, programmers) or in the dispatch of the newsletter/magazine. This is done on the basis of order processing contracts according to Art. 28 GDPR.

Otherwise, we will only pass on your data to third parties if:

  • you have given your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a GDPR,
  • the transfer is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f GDPR and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in the non-disclosure of your data,
  • there is a legal obligation for the transfer according to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. c GDPR, or
  • this is legally permissible and necessary for the fulfilment of a contract with you in accordance with Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. b GDPR.

We only commission service providers in a third country if the special requirements of Art. 44 et seq. GDPR are fulfilled.

V. Rights of the data subject

You have the right:

  • to request information about your personal data processed by us in accordance with Art. 15 GDPR. In particular, you can request information about the processing purposes, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the existence of a right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or objection, the existence of a right to lodge a complaint, the origin of your data if it has not been collected by us, as well as the existence of automated decision-making including profiling and, if applicable, meaningful information about its details;
  • to demand the rectification of inaccurate or incomplete personal data stored by us without delay in accordance with Art. 16 GDPR;                                                                  
  • to demand the erasure of your personal data stored by us in accordance with Art. 17 GDPR, unless the processing is necessary to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information, to comply with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims;
  • to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data in accordance with Art. 18 GDPR, insofar as the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, the processing is unlawful, but you object to its erasure and we no longer require the data, but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or you have objected to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR;
  • to receive the personal data you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request that it be transferred to another controller in accordance with Art. 20 GDPR;
  • to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority pursuant to Art. 77 GDPR. As a rule, you can contact the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence or place of work or the place of the alleged infringement for this purpose.
VI. Right to object

Insofar as your personal data are processed on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data pursuant to Article 21 GDPR, insofar as there are grounds for doing so that arise from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. We will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.

Of course, you can object to the processing of your personal data for the purposes of advertising and data analysis at any time. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising.

VII. Right to revoke consent under data protection law

In accordance with Art. 7 (3) GDPR, you have the right to revoke the consent you have given us at any time. This means that we may no longer continue the data processing based on this consent in the future. The lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the date of revocation is not affected by this.
