Privacy Policy

The operator of these pages takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the legal data protection regulations and this data protection declaration. The use of our website is usually possible without providing personal data. As far as personal data (e. g. name, address or e-mail addresses) are collected on our pages, this is always done on a voluntary basis for the purpose of processing your request. The processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken at your request (Article 6 paragraph 1b GDPR). Data is only stored as long as the business relationship with you requires. An automatic collection of your data does not take place. Data collected with your consent will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent. We would like to point out that the data transmission on the Internet (e. g. communication via e-mail) may have security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible. Data that is generated through the use of our mail page (e. g. server logfiles), are deleted after the access is completed. Conclusions on personal data are not possible. We have created organizational and technical possibilities to ensure that the provisions of data protection are observed internally or by commissioned external service providers.

Use of Cookies, Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc. ("Google"), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
The use includes the "Universal Analytics" mode of operation. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across several devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus to analyze the activities of a user across all devices.
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 generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to 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 where it will be shortened. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended to include IP anonymisation in order to guarantee anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. You can find more information on terms of use and data protection at respectively.

Purposes of processing: On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.

Legal basis: The basis for the use of Google Analytics is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S.1 lit. a GDPR.

Recipients / categories of recipients: The recipient of the collected data is Google.

Transmission to third countries: The personal data is transferred to the USA under the EU-US Privacy Shield on the basis of the adequacy decision of the European Commission. You can download the certificate here.    

Duration of data storage: The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 14 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month.    

Rights affected: You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by preventing the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to the full extent.   

Objection to data collection: You can also prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser add-on. Opt-out cookies prevent the future collection of your data when you visit this website.

Use of Google AdWords

We use the Google AdWords service. This is an online advertising program of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). We use the remarketing function within the Google AdWords service. The remarketing feature allows us to serve you ads on other sites within the Google advertising network based on your interests. For this purpose your surfing behaviour on our website is analysed, e. g. what offers you have looked at. This enables us to provide you with information on our website after your visit on the online search engine Google itself, so-called "Google Ads" and display personalized advertising on other websites. Google stores a cookie in your browser when you visit Google services or websites in the Google advertising network. A cookie is used to uniquely identify your web browser and not to identify you personally. The legal basis for this data processing is Article 6 paragraph 1f GDPR. You can deactivate the use of cookies by Google and thus revoke the consent you gave us for the use of the Google AdWords / Google Remarketing service by following the link below and downloading and installing the plug-in provided there:
