1.1. We are pleased that you visit our website and thank you for your interest. In the following, we wish to tell you how we handle your personal data when you use our website. Personal data are all data by which you can be personally identified.

The controller responsible for the processing of personal data is the natural or legal person which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data.

 

2. Storage of access data in server log files

You can visit our websites without providing your personal data. We only store access data, including (for example) the name of the requested file, the date and time of access, the transferred data quantity and the requesting provider, in so-called server log files. These data are analyzed exclusively for the purpose of ensuring the fault-free operation of the website and improving our offering and do not allow us to identify you personally.

 

3. Cookies

So-called “cookies” are used in some areas of the website so that we can personalize the service we provide to you. Cookies are identifiers that a web server can send to your computer in order to identify it for the duration of the visit. Most browsers are set to automatically accept cookies. However, you can also deactivate the storage of cookies or set your browser so that you are informed whenever cookies are placed. If cookies are not only stored for the duration of each session and automatically deleted afterwards, but are meant to be stored on your computer for a longer period of time, you will be informed of the placement of such cookies. Please note, however, that you may not be able to fully use all the functions of this website in that case.

If some of the cookies implemented by us also process personal data, the processing is performed either to perform the contract in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit.lit. b GDPR or to pursue our legitimate interest in the best possible functioning of the website and in the customer-friendly and effective management of the website visit, in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.

Please note that you can set your browser so that you are informed whenever cookies are placed and can decide to accept them on a case-by-case basis or refuse to accept cookies in certain cases or generally. Each browser manages cookies settings in a different way. This is described in the help menu of every browser, which tells you how you can change your cookie settings.

Please note that the functionality of our website may be limited if you do not accept cookies.

 

4. Use of social media: social plug-ins

So-called social plug-ins (“plug-ins”) of the social network LinkedIn, which is operated by LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, are used on our website.
The plug-ins are marked with a LinkedIn logo or the phrase “social plug-in of LinkedIn” or “LinkedIn social plug-in.” A summary of LinkedIn plug-ins and their appearance can be found here: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy

When you visit a page of our website that contains such a plug-in, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of LinkedIn. The contents of the plug-in are transmitted directly to your browser and integrated into the page by LinkedIn. As a result of this integration, LinkedIn receives the information that your browser has visited the corresponding page of our website even if you do not have a LinkedIn profile or are not logged into LinkedIn at the moment. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted from your browser directly to a server of LinkedIn in the United States and stored there.

If you are logged into LinkedIn, LinkedIn can link the visit to our website directly with your LinkedIn profile. When you interact with the plug-ins, this information is also transmitted directly to a server of LinkedIn and stored there. This information is also published on your LinkedIn profile. 

The data processing processes described herein are performed on the basis of LinkIn’s legitimate interest in placing personalized advertisements, informing other users of the social network about your activities on our website, and designing the service to meet the needs of users, in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.
If you do not want LinkedIn to link the data collected on our website directly with your LinkedIn profile, you must log out from LinkedIn before visiting our website. You can also object to the loading of LinkedIn plug-ins and consequently the data processing processes described above in the future by using add-ons for your browser, including (for example) the script blocker “NoScript” (http://noscript.net/).

LinkedIn Corporation, which is based in the United States, is certified under the US-European data protection agreement “Privacy Shield,” which ensures compliance with the level of data protection applicable in the EU.

For information about the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by LinkedIn, your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy, please refer to LinkedIn’s data protection policy:

5. Web analytics services 

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies,” text files stored on your computer, which make it possible to analyze your use of the website. The information about your use of this website (including the truncated IP address) generated by the cookie is usually transmitted to a server of Google in the United States and stored there.

This website uses Google Analytics exclusively with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”, which ensures the anonymization of the IP address by means of truncation and makes it impossible to identify you personally. As a result of this extension, your IP address is first truncated by Google in the member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a server of Google in the United States and truncated there. In these exceptional cases, the processing is performed on the basis of our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behavior for optimization and marketing reasons, in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.

Google will use this information on our behalf to analyze your use of the website, to compile reports of website activities and provide other services to us related to website usage and Internet usage. The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics from your browser is not commingled with other data of Google.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by changing the corresponding setting of your browser software; please note, however, that you may not be able to fully use all the functions of our website if you do this. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and pertaining to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link:
http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

As an alternative to the browser plug-in or when using browsers on mobile devices, please click on the following link to place an opt-out cookie that will prevent the collection of data by Google Analytics on this website in the future (this opt-out cookie only works in this browser and only for this domain; if you delete your cookies in this browser, you will need to click on this link again): Deactivate Google Analytics.

Google LLC, which is based in the United States, is certified under the US-European data protection agreement “Privacy Shield”, which ensures compliance with the level of data protection applicable in the EU.

7. Duration of storage of personal data 

The duration of storage of personal data depends on the applicable statutory retention period (e.g. retention periods required by commercial law and tax law). Upon the expiration of the retention period, the corresponding data are routinely erased if they are no longer necessary for contract performance or contract initiation and/or we no longer have a legitimate interest in continuing to store the data.

 

8. Data protection and websites of third parties 

The website may contain hyperlinks to and from the websites of third parties.
