COLLECTION OF GENERAL INFORMATION WHEN YOU VISIT OUR WEBSITE
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected by means of a cookie. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and the like. This is exclusively information that does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.
This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the content of web pages requested by you and is mandatory when using the Internet. In particular, they are processed for the following purposes:
- Ensuring a smooth connection setup of the website,
- Ensuring the smooth use of our website,
- evaluating system security and stability, and
- for other administrative purposes.
The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest from the aforementioned data collection purposes. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. Anonymous information of this kind may be statistically analyzed by us in order to optimize our website and the technology behind it.
To manage the cookies and similar technologies used (tracking pixels, web beacons, etc.) and related consents, we use the consent tool “Real Cookie Banner”. Details on how “Real Cookie Banner” works can be found at https://devowl.io/de/rcb/datenverarbeitung/.
Legal bases for the processing of personal data in this context are Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DS-GVO and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. Our legitimate interest is the management of the cookies and similar technologies used and the related consents.
The provision of the personal data is neither contractually required nor necessary for the conclusion of a contract. You are not obliged to provide the personal data. If you do not provide the personal data, we will not be able to manage your consents.
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.
If you contact us by e-mail or contact form regarding questions of any kind, you give us your voluntary consent for the purpose of contacting you. For this purpose, it is necessary to provide a valid e-mail address. This serves the assignment of the request and the subsequent response to the same. The provision of further data is optional. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and for possible follow-up questions. After completion of your request, personal data will be deleted automatically.
E-Mail-Newsletter – Anmeldung, Bezug, Erfolgs- und Reichweitenmessung
On our websites, you have the option to subscribe to free promotional e-mails and to register for our e-mail newsletter, among other things. Only your e-mail address will be processed. In addition, the following technical usage data is collected during registration:
- Date and time of subscription to the newsletter.
The collection of other data as part of the registration process serves to prevent misuse of the services or the e-mail address provided during registration.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. Accordingly, the data collected for sending e-mails will be stored as long as the subscription to the promotional e-mails is active, i.e. until you unsubscribe. An exception to this is your e-mail address, which we add to our block list after unsubscribing from promotional e-mails. In this case, the processing of the e-mail address is justified via Art. 6 (1) lit. f DS-GVO and the legitimate interest in this processing lies in the protection of your interest in not receiving any further promotional e-mails from us. Therefore, your email address will not be deleted, but its processing will be restricted in accordance with Art. 18 DS-GVO.
USE OF GOOGLE ANALYTICS
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited (hereinafter: Google). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. 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, due to the activation of IP anonymization on these web pages, your IP address will be truncated 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 transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information 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. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google.
The purposes of data processing are to evaluate the use of the website and to compile reports on activities on the website. Based on the use of the website and the Internet, other related services shall then be provided. The processing is based on the legitimate interest of the website operator.
In addition or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prevent tracking by Google Analytics on our pages. In doing so, an opt-out cookie will be installed on your device. This will prevent the collection by Google Analytics for this website and for this browser in the future, as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.
USE OF SCRIPT LIBRARIES (GOOGLE WEBFONTS)
In order to display our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Webfonts on this website. Google Web Fonts are transferred to your browser’s cache to avoid multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Web Fonts or prevents access, content is displayed in a standard font.
Calling up script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible – but currently also unclear whether and for what purposes – that operators of such libraries collect data.
USE OF GOOGLE MAPS
EMBEDDED YOUTUBE VIDEOS
We embed YouTube videos on some of our websites. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection to YouTube servers is established. This tells Youtube which pages you are visiting. If you are logged into your Youtube account, Youtube can assign your surfing behavior to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your Youtube account beforehand.
If you have deactivated the saving of cookies for the Google Ad program, you will not have to deal with such cookies when watching Youtube videos. However, Youtube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you would like to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in the browser.
We have integrated the social media buttons of the following companies on our website: Facebook Ireland Limited, LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, YouTube LLC, XING SE, Twitter International Company.
