1. General use of the website
1.1. Access dataWe collect information about you when you use this website. We automatically record information about your usage behaviour and your interaction with us and record data about your computer or mobile device. We collect, store and use data concerning every visit to this website (so-called server log files). The access data includes the name and URL of the file retrieved, the date and time of retrieval, the data volume transferred, report on successful retrieval (HTTP response code), browser type and browser version, operating system, referrer URL (i.e. the last visited website), IP address and the requesting provider. We use this log data without assigning it to your person and without creating a profile for statistical analyses for the purpose of the operation, security and optimisation of our website, for the anonymous recording of the number of visitors to our website (traffic) and the scale and nature of use of our website and services, to measure the number of clicks obtained by cooperation partners. On the basis of this information, we can provide personalised and location-related content and analyse the data traffic, to find and rectify errors and improve our services. We reserve the right to check the log data retroactively if there are clear grounds for justified suspicion of illegal use. We store IP addresses for a limited period in the log files, if this is necessary for security purposes or for the provision of a service. We also store IP addresses if we suspect a criminal act relating to the use of our website. We also store the data of your last visit in some cases (e.g. registration, login, clicking of links etc.).
1.2 E-mail contactIf you contact us (e.g. by contact form or e-mail), we store your details in order to reply to your enquiry and any follow-up questions. We delete the data in this context after the storage is no longer required. We only store additional personal data if you give your consent to this or if this is permitted by law without special consent.
1.4 Integration of services and contents of third parties
We use the function "activation of IP anonymization" on this website. As a result, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide us with other services related to website activity and internet usage.
The IP address provided by Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You can prevent the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use all the features of this website You may also prevent data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) being collected and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Type kit fonts of AdobeOn the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. DSGVO), we use external type kit fonts of the provider Adobe Systems Software Ireland Limited, 4 -6 Riverwalk, Citywest Business Campus, Dublin 24, Republic of Ireland. Adobe is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, which provides a guarantee to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000TNo9AAG&status=Active).
1.5 Online presence in Social MediaWe maintain online presence within social networks and platforms in order to communicate with customers, prospects and users active there and to inform them about our services. We point out that data of the users outside the area of the European Union can be processed. This may result in risks for the users because e.g. enforcement of user rights could be made more difficult. With respect to US providers certified under the Privacy Shield, we point out that they are committed to respecting EU privacy standards.
Furthermore, the data of the users are usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. Thus, e.g. user profiles are created from the user behavior and the resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles can in turn be used to e.g. Place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that are presumably in line with users' interests. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the computers of the users, in which the user behavior and the interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, in the usage profiles, data can also be stored independently of the used devices (in particular if the users are members of the respective platforms and logged in to them).
The processing of the personal data of users is based on our legitimate interests in an effective information of users and communication with users in accordance with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO. If the users are asked by the respective providers for a consent to the data processing (that is, explain their agreement, for example, by ticking a check box or confirming a button), the legal basis of the processing is Art. 6 para. a., Art. 7 GDPR.
For a detailed description of the relative processing and the possibilities of opt-out, we refer to the following linked information of the provider. Also in the case of requests for information and the enforcement of user rights, we point out that these can be claimed most effectively from the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information. If you still need help, then you can contact us.
