Privacy policy

1. data protection notice for website visitors

Thank you for visiting our website. Nachfolgend möchten wir Sie über den Umgang mit Ihren Daten gem. Art. 13 Datenschutz-Grundverordnung (DSGVO) informieren.

1.1. Responsible body

The entity named in the legal notice is responsible for the data processing described below.

1.2. Usage data

When you visit our websites, so-called usage data is temporarily evaluated on our web server for statistical purposes as a log in order to improve the quality of our websites. This data set consists of

  • the name and address of the requested content,
  • the date and time of the query,
  • the amount of data transferred,
  • the access status (content transmitted, content not found), the description of the web browser used and the operating system,
  • the referral link, which indicates from which page you came to ours,
  • the IP address of the requesting computer, which is shortened so that a personal reference can no longer be established.

The aforementioned log data is only analyzed anonymously.

The legal basis for the processing of usage data is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR. The processing is carried out in the legitimate interest of providing the content of the website and ensuring a device- and browser-optimized display.

1.3. Data security

We take technical and organizational measures to protect your data from unwanted access as comprehensively as possible. We use an encryption process on our websites. Your data is transmitted from your computer to our server and vice versa via the Internet using TLS encryption. You can usually recognize this by the fact that the lock symbol in the status bar of your browser is closed and the address bar begins with https://.

1.4. Required cookies

We use cookies on our websites that are necessary for the use of our websites.

Cookies are small text files that can be stored and read on your end device. A distinction is made between session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and permanent cookies, which are stored beyond the individual session.

We do not use these necessary cookies for analysis, tracking or advertising purposes.
Some of these cookies only contain information on certain settings and are not personally identifiable. They may also be necessary to enable user guidance, security and implementation of the site.

We use these cookies on the basis of our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR.

You can set your browser so that it informs you about the placement of cookies. You can also delete them at any time via the corresponding browser setting and prevent the setting of new cookies. Please note that our web pages may then not be displayed in full and some functions may no longer be technically available.

1.5. Consent banner

We use a consent management platform (consent or cookie banner) on our websites when optional cookies are used. The processing in connection with the use of the consent management platform and the logging of the settings you have made is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR, in our legitimate interest to play out our content according to your preferences and to be able to prove your consent(s). The settings you have made, the consent you have given and some of your usage data are stored in a cookie. This means that it is retained for subsequent page requests and your consent can still be tracked. You can find further information on this under the heading “Required cookies”.

The provider of any consent management platform that may be used acts for us as a service provider strictly bound by instructions (processor). An order processing contract in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR has been agreed.

1.6. Visitor measurement

We may use web analysis tools to design our websites in line with requirements. This creates user profiles on the basis of pseudonyms. For this purpose, permanent cookies are stored on your end device and read by us. In addition, it is possible that we may retrieve recognition features for your browser or your end device (e.g. a so-called browser fingerprint or your unabridged IP address). In this way, we are able to recognize returning visitors and count them as such.

In addition, we use the following functions as part of visitor measurement:

  • We enrich the pseudonymous data with additional data provided to us by third-party providers. In this way, we are able to record the demographic characteristics of our visitors, e.g. information on age, gender and place of residence.
  • We use a recognition method that allows us to record and subsequently evaluate the mouse pointer movements of our visitors.
  • We create exploratory click paths and browsing behavior analyses using contextual data, including the usage history on other pages with cookies also activated.

Data processing is based on your consent, provided that you have given your consent via our banners. You can revoke your consent at any time. Please follow this link and make the appropriate settings via our banner.

Which third-party providers do we use in this context?

Below we list the third-party providers with whom we work in connection with visitor measurement. If the data is processed outside the EU or the EEA (in particular in the USA) in this context, we provide information on the level of data protection in the following list.

  • Provider: None
  • Maximum storage duration:
  • Adequate level of data protection:
  • Revocation of consent:

Tracking technologies from third-party providers for advertising purposes

We may use cross-device tracking technologies so that you can be shown targeted advertising on other websites based on your visit to our websites and so that we can recognize how effective our advertising measures were.

Data processing is based on your consent, provided that you have given your consent via our banner. Your consent is voluntary and can be revoked at any time.

How does tracking work?

When you visit our websites, it is possible that the third-party providers mentioned below may retrieve recognition features for your browser or your end device (e.g. a so-called browser fingerprint), evaluate your IP address, store or read recognition features on your end device (e.g. cookies) or gain access to individual tracking pixels.

The individual features can be used by third-party providers to recognize your device on other websites. We can commission the relevant third-party providers to place advertisements based on the pages you visit on our website.

What is cross-device tracking?

If you log in to the third-party provider with your own user data, the respective recognition features of different browsers and end devices can be linked with each other. If, for example, the third-party provider has created a separate feature for the laptop, desktop PC or smartphone or tablet you are using, these individual features can be assigned to each other as soon as you use a service of the third-party provider with your login data. In this way, the third-party provider can also target our advertising campaigns across different end devices.

Which third-party providers do we use in this context?

Below we list the third-party providers with whom we work for advertising purposes. If the data is processed outside the EU or the EEA (in particular in the USA) in this context, we provide information on the level of data protection in the following list.

1.8. Integration of other technical third-party content and functions

We use the technical functions and content of third-party providers listed below to display our websites.

Calling up our pages means that the content of the third-party providers is not reloaded, as the third-party content is integrated locally.

It is possible that these functions and contents may be provided by third-party providers. As a result, the third-party provider may receive the information that you have accessed our site and the usage data technically required in this context.

We have no influence on further data processing by the third-party provider.
Data processing takes place on the basis of your consent, provided that you have previously given your consent via our banner solution.

Please note that the use of third-party content and functions may result in your data being processed outside the EU or the EEA (in particular in the USA). For transfers to the USA, an adequate level of data protection is guaranteed on the basis of the adequacy decision (EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework).

We pass on your data to service providers who support us in the operation of our websites and the associated processes as part of order processing in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. These are hosting service providers, for example. Our service providers are strictly bound by our instructions and are contractually obligated accordingly.

In the following, we will name the processors with whom we work if we have not already done so in the above text of the data protection declaration. If data can be processed outside the EU or the EEA in this context, we will inform you about this in the following table.
