Collection of general information when you visit our

website

 

Nature and purpose of the processing:

 

When you access our website, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide information, general information is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider, your IP address and similar information. This is exclusively information which does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person. They are processed in particular for the following purposes:

 

·         Ensuring a trouble-free connection of the website,

·         Ensuring a smooth use of our website,

·         evaluation of system security and stability as well as

·         for other administrative purposes.

 

We do not use your data to draw conclusions about you personally. Information of this kind

may be statistically evaluated by us in order to optimize our Internet presence and the

technology behind it.

Legal basis:

 

Processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.

 

Receiver:

 

The recipients of the data may be technical service providers who act as contract processors for the operation and maintenance of our website.

 

Storage time:

 

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose of collection. This is generally the case for the data used to provide the website when the respective session is over.

 

Provision mandatory or required:

 

The provision of the aforementioned personal data is neither required by law nor by contract. Without the IP address, however, the service and functionality of our website cannot be guaranteed. In addition, some services may not be available or may be restricted. For this reason an objection is excluded.

 

 

Newsletter

 

Nature and purpose of the processing:

 

Your data will only be used to send you the newsletter you have subscribed to by e-mail. Your name is given in order to address you personally in the newsletter and to identify you if you wish to exercise your rights as a person concerned. To receive the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide your e-mail address. When registering to receive our newsletter, the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose.

 

Subscribers may also be notified by e-mail of circumstances relevant to the service or registration (e.g. changes to the newsletter offer or technical circumstances). For an effective registration we need a valid e-mail address. In order to verify that a registration is actually made by the owner of an e-mail address, we use the „double opt-in“ procedure. For this purpose we log the order of the newsletter, the sending of a confirmation e-mail and the receipt of the requested answer. Further data will not be collected. The data will be used exclusively for sending the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.

 

Legal basis:

 

On the basis of your explicit consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR), we will regularly send you our newsletter or comparable information by e-mail to your specified e-mail address. You can revoke your consent to the storage of your personal data and their use for the newsletter dispatch at any time with effect for the future. In each newsletter you will find a corresponding link. You can also unsubscribe directly from this website at any time or inform us of your revocation using the contact option given at the end of this data protection information.

 

Receiver:

 

The recipients of the data may be contractors.

 

Storage time:

 

The data will only be processed in this context as long as the corresponding consent is available. They are then deleted.

 

Provision mandatory or required:

 

The provision of your personal data is voluntary, solely on the basis of your consent. Unfortunately, we cannot send you our newsletter without your existing consent.

 

 

Contact form

 

Nature and purpose of the processing:

 

The data you enter will be stored for the purpose of individual communication with you. To do this, a valid e-mail address and your name are required. This is used to assign the request and then reply to it. The specification of further data is optional.

 

Legal basis:

 

The data entered in the contact form is processed on the basis of a legitimate interest (Art 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR). By providing the contact form, we would like to make it easy for you to contact us. Your data will be stored for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for possible follow-up questions. If you contact us to request a quotation, the data entered in the contact form will be processed to carry out pre-contractual measures (Art 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR).

The recipients of the data may be contractors.

Provision mandatory or required:

 

The provision of your personal data is voluntary. However, we can only process your request if you provide us with your name, your e-mail address and the reason for the request.

 

 

Use of Google Analytics

 

Nature and purpose of the processing:

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (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 this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymisation on these websites, your IP address will previously be reduced 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 and shortened there. 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 activities and to provide the website operator with further services associated with website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. The purposes of data processing are to evaluate the use of the website and to compile reports on activities on the website. Other related services will then be provided based on the use of the website and the Internet.

 

Legal basis:

 

The data is processed on the basis of the user’s consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR).

 

Receiver:

 

The recipient of the data is Google as a contract processor. We have concluded the corresponding order processing contract with Google for this purpose.

 

Storage time:

 

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for our recording purposes.

 

Third country transfer:

 

Google processes your data in the USA and has submitted to the EU_US Privacy Shield https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. In addition, we have concluded standard data protection clauses with Google for the use of Google Analytics.

 

Provision mandatory or required:

 

The provision of your personal data is voluntary, solely on the basis of your consent. If you prevent access, this may result in functional restrictions on the website.

 

Revocation of consent:

 

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: Browser Add On to disable Google Analytics. In addition or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prevent tracking by Google Analytics on our pages by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie is installed on your device. This will prevent Google Analytics from collecting data for this website and for this browser in future as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.

 

Profiling:

 

With the help of the tracking tool Google Analytics the behaviour of the visitors of the website can be evaluated and the interests can be analysed. For this purpose we create a pseudonymous user profile.

 

 

Social Plugins

 

Nature and purpose of the processing:

 

Social plugins from the providers listed below are used on our websites. You can recognize the plugins by the fact that they are marked with the corresponding logo. These plugins may be used to send information, which may include personal data, to the service provider and may be used by him. We prevent the unconscious and unwanted collection and transmission of data to the service provider through a 2-click solution. To activate a desired social plugin, it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. Only this activation of the plugin triggers the collection of information and its transmission to the service provider. We do not collect any personal data ourselves using the social plugins or about their use. We have no influence on which data an activated plugin collects and how it is used by the provider. At present, it must be assumed that a direct connection to the provider’s services will be expanded and that at least the IP address and device-related information will be recorded and used. It is also possible that the service providers try to save cookies on the computer used. Please refer to the data protection information of the respective service provider to find out which specific data is collected and how it is used. Note: If you are logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook can identify you as a visitor to a specific page. We have integrated the social media buttons of the following companies on our website:

 

·         www.facebook.com

·         www.twitter.com

·         www.linkedin.com

 

 

SSL Encoding

 

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

 

 

Changes to our data protection regulations

 

We reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration so that it always complies with current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection declaration will then apply for your next visit.
