Data protection

The operator of these web pages takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection provisions and this privacy policy.

Collection, processing and use of your personal data
As a rule, our website may be used without providing personal data. Where personal data are collected on our website (such as your name, your address or email address), this takes place if, for example, you send us a contact request via our website because you are interested in our products or services or have any other enquiry, or you communicate these data of your own accord, e.g. to establish, formulate or amend a contractual relationship concluded between you and us.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Where we obtain the consent of data subjects for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) forms the legal basis.

When we process personal data and the processing is required to perform a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR is the legal basis. This also applies to processing which is necessary to perform precontractual measures.

If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation of our company, Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR is the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person necessitate the processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) (d) GDPR is the legal basis.

Where the data processing is required to maintain a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, basic rights and basic freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh said legitimate interest, Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR forms the legal basis for processing.

Right to object

You may at any time withdraw your consent to the storage of data, the email address and its use for the sending of direct advertising in accordance with the statutory provisions.

Data forwarding

Personal data are only forwarded to third parties to the extent that this is necessary, particularly for contract performance, or to the extent stipulated by statute.

Cookies

Some of the websites use so-called “cookies”. Cookies do not cause damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used for the purpose of making our services more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files which are placed on your computer and stored by your browser. Most of the cookies used by us are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit.

Other cookies will remain on your terminal until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser at your next visit. You can set your browser to inform you when cookies are set and allow cookies in individual cases only; you can also exclude the acceptance of cookies in particular cases or generally, and you can activate automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. If you deactivate cookies, the functionalities of this website may be restricted.

Server log files

The provider of these websites automatically collects and saves information in so-called server log files, which your browser transmits to us automatically. This information consists of the name of the website accessed, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification about successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited website), IP address and requesting provider. This data is not consolidated with other data sources. We reserve the right to examine these data at a later date if we learn of specific indications of illegal use.

Google Analytics

On the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. our interest in analyzing, optimizing and commercially operating our online services), we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie regarding your use of the online services is generally transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA.

Google will use this information on our behalf to analyze your use of our online services, compile reports about the activities within these online services, and provide us with other services related to the use of these online services and internet usage. In this context, pseudonymized user profiles of users may be created from the processed data.

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and accordingly guarantees to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymization activated. This means that your IP address will be shortened by Google within the member states of the European Union and other states participating in the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will a full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and be shortened there. The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser is not combined with other Google data.

You can prevent the setting of cookies by configuring your browser software settings accordingly; you may also prevent the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the online services from being transferred to Google and the processing of the data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

More information on data usage for advertising purposes by Google, configuration and objection options are available on the Google websites: https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites?hl=en (“How Google uses information from sites or apps that use our services”), http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads (“Data use for advertising”) and http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/ (“Control the information Google uses to show you ads”).

SSL encryption

This website uses SSL encryption for the purposes of security and to protect the transmission of confidential contents, for example enquiries you send to us as the website operators. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line in the browser changes from “http://” to “https://”, and by the padlock symbol in your browser address bar. When SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Google Maps

This website uses the Google Maps product to display interactive maps. Google Maps is a maps service of Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The Google Maps version used by us does not transmit any personal data (other than IP addresses) to Google. This information is generally transmitted to and stored by Google on a server in the United States. Google is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. This guarantees a level of protection comparable to European data protection law: (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

Google Fonts

This website uses external fonts, Google Fonts (https://www.google.com/fonts). Google Fonts is a service of Google Inc. The inclusion of Google Fonts takes place through accessing the Google server (usually in the USA). Google processes your IP address for this purpose. However, no additional cookie is set which could store personal data. Google will merely collect information about which fonts are loaded in your browser for statistical analysis.
