Please note that the US is not a secure third country within the meaning of EU data protection law. US companies are required to disclose personal data to security agencies. As the data subject, you cannot take legal action against this.

We have no influence over these processing activities.

Withdrawing Your Consent to Data Processing

Data processing often requires your express consent. You may withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawal of consent will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS PROCESSED FOR DIRECT MARKETING PURPOSES, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA CONCERNING YOU FOR SUCH MARKETING; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING TO THE EXTENT THAT IT IS RELATED TO SUCH DIRECT MARKETING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL NO LONGER BE USED FOR SUCH DIRECT MARKETING PURPOSES (OBJECTION UNDER ARTICLE 21(2) OF THE GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION).

Right to Lodge a Complaint with a Competent Supervisory Authority

In case of infringements on the General Data Protection Regulation, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, especially in the EU member state of their habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement.

Right to Data Portability

You have the right to receive in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format the data we process through automated means on the basis of your consent for the performance of a contract and to transmit this data to a third party. However, direct transmissions of your data to another controller are only possible if technically feasible.

Data Security

We use the common SSL procedure (Secure Sockets Layer) with the highest encryption level support-ed by your browser when visiting our website. This is usually a 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we will use 128-bit v3 technology. Whether a page of our web-site is transmitted in encrypted is recognised by the key or lock symbol on your browser's lower status bar.

Apart from that, we implement suitable technical and organisational measures to protect your data against random or intentional manipulation, partial or total loss, destruction or unauthorised third-party access. Our security measures are improved regularly in accordance with technological devel-opments.

  • Right to information,
  • Right to rectification or erasure,
  • Right to processing restriction,

  • If you contest the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we will normally need time for verification. For the period of this verification, you have the right to obtain restriction of processing of your personal data.
  • If your personal data is or was processed unlawfully, you have the right to obtain restriction of processing instead of erasure.
  • If your personal data is no longer needed by us, but by you for the exercise, establishment or defense of legal claims, you have the right to obtain restriction of processing instead of erasure.
  • If you object under Article 21(1) of the General Data Protection Regulation, whether our legitimate grounds override yours must be verified. Pending verification whose interests are overriding, you have the right to obtain restriction of processing of your personal data.

If processing of your personal data is restricted, this data may—with the exception of its storage—only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the EU or of an EU member state.

These tracking measures are used for need-based design and continuous optimisation of our website. We also use these tracking measures for statistical assess-ments of our website and to optimise our offer for you.

For the need-based design and continuous optimisation of our website, we also use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Ireland Ltd. ( https://www.google.com/about/ ) (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; hereafter: "Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies," text files saved onto your computer, that allow your use of the website to be analysed. The information on your website use generated by the cookie is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA where it is saved. If IP-anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within a Member state of the European Union or in another state party to the European Economic Area Agreement. Only in exceptions will your full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the US and shortened there.

Processing Agreement

We concluded a processing agreement with Google and fully implement the stringent requirements of German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

Google Ads

The website operator uses Google Ads. Google Ads is an online advertising program of Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google Ads enables us to display ads on Google’s search engine and third-party websites when the user enters certain terms into Google (keyword targeting). Furthermore, targeted ads may be displayed based on Google’s user data (e.g. location data and interests) (target group targeting). As the website operator, we may assess this data quantitatively by, e.g. analyzing which search terms lead to the display of our ads and how many ads produce certain numbers of clicks.

We use Google Ads on the basis of Article 6(1) Letter f of the General Data Protection Regulation. The website operator has a legitimate interest in effective marketing of its service products.

Google Remarketing

This website uses the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing provided by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google Remarketing analyzes your user behavior on our website (e.g. clicks on certain products) to assign a specific advertising target group and display corresponding ads to you when you visit other online offers (remarketing or retargeting).

Furthermore, advertising target groups created through Google Remarketing may be linked to Google’s cross-device functions. This enables interest-based and personalized ads adjusted to you based on your previous user and surfing behavior on one device (e.g. your cellphone) to also be displayed to you on other devices (e.g. your tablet or PC).

If you have a Google account, you may object to personalized ads at the following link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/ .

We use Google Remarketing on the basis of Article 6(1) Letter f of the General Data Protection Regulation. The website operator has a legitimate interest in effective marketing of its products. If consent was obtained, processing will be performed exclusively on the basis of Article 6(1) Letter a of the General Data Protection Regulation; consent may be withdrawn at any time.

For further information and Google’s Privacy Policy, please see: https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads?hl=en .

Google Conversion Tracking

This website uses Google Conversion Tracking provided by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google Conversion Tracking enables Google and us to recognize whether the user performed certain actions. For example, we can determine which buttons on our website were clicked how often and which products were viewed or purchased especially often. This information allows us to prepare conversion statistics. We learn the total number of users who click on our ads and which actions they performed. We do not obtain information whereby users can be personally identified. Google uses cookies or similar recognition technology for identification.

We use Google Conversion Tracking on the basis of Article 6(1) Letter f of the General Data Protection Regulation. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its advertising offer and ads. If consent was obtained (e.g. to use of cookies), processing will be performed exclusively on the basis of Article 6(1) Letter a of the General Data Protection Regulation; consent may be withdrawn at any time.

For further information about Google Conversion Tracking, please see Google’s Privacy Policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en .

Google DoubleClick

This website uses functions of Google DoubleClick provided by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, (hereinafter “DoubleClick”).

DoubleClick is used to display interest-based ads to you on Google’s entire ad network. Ads may be targeted to the viewer’s interests through DoubleClick. For example, our ads may be displayed with Google search results or on ad banners linked to DoubleClick.

To display interest-based ads to users, DoubleClick must recognize and assign visited websites, clicks and other user behavior information to the viewer. To do this, DoubleClick uses cookies or similar recognition technologies (e.g. device fingerprinting). The information collected thereby is summarized into a pseudonymous user profile to display interest-based ads to the user.

We use Google DoubleClick in the interest of targeted marketing measures. This represents a legitimate interest under Article 6(1) Letter f of the General Data Protection Regulation. If consent was obtained (e.g. to use of cookies), processing will be performed exclusively on the basis of Article 6(1) Letter a of the General Data Protection Regulation; consent may be withdrawn at any time.

For further information and options for objecting to ads displayed by Google please see the following links: https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads and https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated .

Facebook Pixel

This website uses a Facebook pixel to measure the conversion of visitor actions. This service is provided by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland. However, according to Facebook, the data collected thereby is also transmitted to the US and other third countries.

This enables the behavior of website visitors to be tracked after they are forwarded to the operator’s website by clicking on Facebook ads. This allows the effectiveness of Facebook ads to be assessed for statistical market research purposes and optimized for future marketing measures.

The collected data is anonymous to us as the website operator and cannot be used by us to identify users. However, this data is stored and processed by Facebook in a manner that enables assignments to user profiles and Facebook to use this data for its own marketing purposes in accordance with the Facebook Data Policy. This allows Facebook to display ads on and outside of Facebook. We, the website operator, have no influence over this use of this data.

We use the Facebook pixel on the basis of Article 6(1) Letter f of the General Data Protection Regulation. The website operator has a legitimate interest in effective marketing measures, including through use of social media. If consent was obtained (e.g. to use of cookies), processing will be performed exclusively on the basis of Article 6(1) Letter a of the General Data Protection Regulation; consent may be withdrawn at any time.

Data transmissions to the US are based on the standard contract clauses of the European Commission. For further details, please see: https://www.facebook.com/legal/EU_data_transfer_addendum and https://www.facebook.com/help/566994660333381 .

LinkedIn Insight Tag

This website uses LinkedIn’s Insight Tag provided by LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Data Processing Using LinkedIn’s Insight Tag

The LinkedIn Insight Tag provides information to us about the visitors of our website. If a website visitor is also registered on LinkedIn, we may analyze the visitor’s key professional data (e.g. career level, business size, country, location, industry and occupation) to adjust our website better to these target groups. Furthermore, LinkedIn Insight Tags allows us to measure whether visitors to our website make purchases or perform other activities (conversion measurement). Conversion measurement may also be conducted across devices (e.g. from PCs to tablets). LinkedIn Insight Tag also offers a retargeting function through which we can display targeted ads to visitors of our website outside of our website. Persons to whom ads are displayed are not identified, according to LinkedIn.

LinkedIn also collects so-called logfiles (URL, referrer URL, IP address, device and browser features and time of access). IP addresses are shortened or (if used to target LinkedIn across devices) hashed (pseudonymized). Direct identifiers of LinkedIn members are erased by LinkedIn after 7 days. The remaining pseudonymized data is erased after 180 days.

The data collected by LinkedIn cannot be assigned to individuals by us, the website operator. LinkedIn stores the personal data collected about website visitors on servers in the US and uses this data for its own marketing measure. For further details, please see LinkedIn’s Privacy Policy at https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy#choices-oblig .

Legal Basis

We use LinkedIn Insight on the basis of Article 6(1) Letter f of the General Data Protection Regulation.

OUR SOCIAL MEDIA PRESENCES

Data processing through social networks

We maintain publicly accessible profiles on social networks. The individual social net-works we use can be found below.

Social networks such as Facebook, Twitter etc. can generally analyse your user behaviour comprehensively if you visit their website or a website with integrated social media con-tent (e.g. Like buttons or banner ads). When you visit our social media pages, numerous data protection-relevant processing operations are triggered.

Specifically, if you are logged in to your social media account and visit our social media page, the operator of the social media portal can assign this visit to your user account. Under certain circumstances, your personal data may also be recorded if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, this data is collected, for example, via cookies stored on your device or by recording your IP address.

Using the data collected in this way, the operators of the social media portals can create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. This way you can be pre-sented with interest-based advertising both inside and outside of your respective social media presence. If you have an account with the respective social network, interest-based advertising can be displayed on any device on which you are logged in or have logged in.

Please also note that we cannot retrace all processing operations on the social media por-tals. Depending on the provider, additional processing operations may therefore be car-ried out by the operators of the social media portals. Details can be found in the terms of use and privacy policy of the respective social media portals.

Legal basis

Our social media presences should ensure the widest possible presence on the Internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The analysis pro-cesses initiated by the social networks may be based on divergent legal bases to be speci-fied by the operators of the social networks (e.g. consent within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR).

Responsibility and assertion of rights

If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g. Facebook), we, together with the operator of the social media platform, are responsible for the data processing operations trig-gered during this visit. You can in principle protect your rights (access, rectification, eras-ure, restriction of processing, data portability and complaint) vis-à-vis us as well as vis-à-vis the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. Facebook).

Please note that despite the shared responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full influence on the data processing operations of the social media por-tals. Our options are determined by the company policy of the respective provider.

Storage time

The data collected directly from us via the social media presence will be deleted from our systems as soon as the purpose for their storage lapses, you ask us to erase it, you revoke your consent to the storage or the purpose for the data storage lapses. Stored cookies remain on your device until you delete them. Mandatory statutory provisions - in particu-lar, retention periods - remain unaffected.

We have no control over the storage duration of your data that are stored by the social network operators for their own purposes. For details, please refer directly to the infor-mation provided by the social network operators (e.g. in their privacy policy, see below).
