When you call up our website, it is technically necessary for data to be transmitted to our web server via your Internet browser. The following data is recorded during an ongoing connection for communication between your internet browser and our web server:
– Date and time of the request
– Name of the requested file
– Page from which the file was requested
– access status
– Web browser and operating system used
– (Complete) IP address of the requesting computer
– Transferred amount of data
We collect the listed data in order to guarantee a smooth connection establishment of the website and to enable a comfortable use of our website by the users. The log file also serves to evaluate system security and stability as well as administrative purposes. The legal basis for the temporary storage of data or log files is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. For reasons of technical security, in particular to prevent attempts to attack our web server, we store this data temporarily. Based on this data, it is not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual persons. After 7 days at the latest, the data is anonymised by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a reference to the individual user.

If this feature is enabled, the browser will tell ad networks, websites and applications that you do not want to be tracked for behavior-based advertising and the like.

Contact form and contact by e-mail
If you send us enquiries by contact form or e-mail, your details from the enquiry form or your e-mail, including the first and last name you indicated there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. The indication of an e-mail address is necessary for the contact indication, the indication of your name as well as your telephone number is voluntary. Under no circumstances will we pass on this data without your consent. The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO and, if applicable, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, insofar as your request is aimed at the conclusion of a contract. Your data will be deleted after your request has been processed, unless there are legal obligations to retain it. In the case of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, you may object to the processing of your personal data at any time.
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on our website with regular information on our offers and products, we need your e-mail address as the mandatory information. Additional data is provided in order to address you personally in the newsletter and/or to identify you if you wish to exercise your rights as a data subject.
We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to send the newsletter. This means that we will only send you our newsletter by e-mail after you have expressly confirmed that you consent to the sending of newsletters. In the first step, you will receive an e-mail with a link that you can use to confirm that you wish to receive newsletters in future as the owner of the corresponding e-mail address. By confirming this, you give us your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO that we may use your personal data for the purpose of sending the desired newsletter.
When you register for the newsletter, in addition to the e-mail address required for sending the newsletter, we store the IP address used to register for the newsletter as well as the date and time of registration and confirmation so that we can track any possible misuse at a later date.
You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time via the link included in each newsletter or by sending an e-mail to the above-mentioned person in charge. After you have unsubscribed, your e-mail address will be deleted immediately from our newsletter distribution list unless you have expressly consented to the continued use of the data collected or the continued processing is otherwise legally permissible.
Our e-mail newsletters are sent via the technical service provider The Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE Suite 5000, 30308 and Atlanta (“Mailchimp”), to whom we forward the data you provided when you subscribed to our newsletter. This disclosure takes place in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO and serves our legitimate interest in the use of an effective, secure and user-friendly newsletter system. The data you enter for newsletter subscription (e.g. e-mail address) is stored on Mailchimp’s servers in the USA.
Mailchimp uses this information to send and statistically evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. For evaluation purposes, the e-mails sent contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which represent one-pixel image files stored on our website. This enables us to determine whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links have been clicked. With the help of so-called conversion tracking, it can also be analysed whether a predefined action (e.g. purchase of a product on our website) has taken place after clicking on the link in the newsletter. Technical information is also recorded (e.g. time of access, IP address, browser type and operating system). The data is collected exclusively under a pseudonym and is not linked to your other personal data, a direct personal reference is excluded. This data is used exclusively for statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients.
If you wish to object to the data analysis for statistical evaluation purposes, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter.
We have concluded an order processing contract with Mailchimp in which we oblige Mailchimp to protect the data of our customers and not to pass it on to third parties.
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. We use Google Analytics only with activated IP anonymization. This means that the IP address of the user is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area, whereby a personal reference can be excluded. Google is certified for the US-European data protection agreement “Privacy Shield”, which guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.
Processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO or § 15 Para. 3 TMG on the basis of our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behaviour for optimisation and marketing purposes.
A click on the following link prevents the collection by Google Analytics by setting a so-called opt-out cookie:

Google Analytics Remarketing/DoubleClick
Our website uses the features of Google Analytics Remarketing in conjunction with the cross-device features of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
This feature allows Google Analytics Remarketing to link the ad target groups created with Google Analytics Remarketing to the cross-device features of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. In this way, interest-based, personalised advertising messages that have been adapted to you depending on your previous usage and surfing behaviour on one device (e.g. mobile phone) can also be displayed on another of your devices (e.g. tablet or PC).
If you have given your consent, Google will link your web and app browser history to your Google Account for this purpose. In this way, the same personalized advertising messages can be displayed on every device on which you log in with your Google Account.
To support this feature, Google Analytics collects users’ authenticated IDs that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data in order to define and create target audiences for cross-device advertising.
You can permanently opt out of cross-device remarketing/targeting by opting out of personalized advertising in your Google Account by following this link: https://adssettings.google.com/
In the case of data collection processes that are not merged into your Google Account (e.g. because you do not have a Google Account or have objected to the merging), the data collection is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The legitimate interest arises from the fact that the website operator has an interest in the anonymous analysis of website visitors for advertising purposes.
The information collected about users may be transmitted to Google and stored on Google’s servers in the United States. Google is certified for the us-european data protection agreement “Privacy Shield”, which guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.
Further information and the data protection regulations can be found in Google’s data protection declaration at: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/
Our website uses plugins from the YouTube page operated by Google. The website is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plug-in, a connection is established to YouTube’s servers. This will tell the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited.
If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you can allow YouTube to associate your surfing behaviour directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
Data Transfer and Receiver
A transfer of your personal data to third parties does not take place, except
In addition, we use external service providers for the processing of our services, whom we have carefully selected and commissioned in writing.

These are service providers for web hosting, sending e-mails, maintenance and servicing of our IT systems, etc. The service providers will not pass this data on to third parties.
Duration of storage of personal data

After expiry of the respective period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted. If data is required for contract fulfilment or contract initiation or if we have a justified interest in further storage, the data will be deleted if you are no longer required for these purposes or if you make use of your right of revocation or objection.

This data is used to place advertisements within and outside the platform that presumably correspond to your interests. In addition, data may also be stored in the user profiles independently of the devices you use. This is regularly the case if you are a member of the respective platforms and logged in to them.
