3. Cookies

This website uses cookies. Cookies are text files which are placed and stored on a computer system via a web browser. Cookies enable websites and servers to distinguish the individual browsers of data subjects from other browsers. This website uses Javascript: We use „Google Fonts“ for technical needs.

By using cookies and useful Javascript, we are able to improve the user-friendliness of this website and provide services which you would not be able to provide without cookies. The user of the website which uses cookies does not, for example, have to enter his or her access data every time they visit the website as these data are taken from the website and the cookies stored on the user’s computer system.

The settings of web browsers can be changed to prevent cookies being set by any websites. Cookies which have already been set can be erased again. This is possible in all standard web browsers. In some cases the functions on the website may be restricted as a result.

4. Purpose of data collection and possible transfer of data

We only collect personal data if you provide them to us when making an inquiry, for example. Data are entered in the areas as follows:

In contact forms
The contact form can be used to send inquiries to us directly. The website also includes information which we are required to provide by law (e.g., in the imprint) which enables you to make contact with us quickly by electronic means (e.g., via e-mail address). If someone makes contact by e-mail or by using a contact form, the data transferred by that person is stored automatically. Data transferred for the purpose of making contact are stored in order to handle inquiries from or make contact with the data subject. Unless this is necessary for handling purposes, these personal data are not passed on to third parties outside the Group companies.

Via our own e-mail service
As well as the contact information in, for example, the imprint, the e-mail address and telephone numbers of specific departments are also provided on our website. In this way we want to enable you to make contact with our company quickly and simply. Most e-mails will be sent to general mailboxes. You should therefore be aware that any messages you send may be seen by several different people.

5. Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”; these are text files which are stored on your computer to analyze the way you use the website. The information about the way you use this website created by the cookie is usually sent to and stored on a Google server in the USA. If the IP anonymization is activated on this website, Google will first truncate your IP address in Member States of the European Union or in other state parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

Only in exceptional circumstances will the full IP address be sent to and truncated on a Google server in the USA. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator to evaluate the way you use the website, to collate reports on website activities, and to provide the website operator other services related to website and Internet use. The IP address sent by Google Analytics from your browser is not combined with other data held by Google.

You can change your browser settings to prevent cookies from being stored; however, we draw your attention to the fact that, in these circumstances, you may find that you are unable to make full use of functions on the website. You can also prevent Google from collecting or processing the data generated by cookies and relating to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

More information is available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de or at https://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html (general information on Google Analytics and data protection). We draw your attention to the fact that Google Analytics is supplemented by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” on this website to guarantee the anonymized collection of IP addresses (so-called IP-masking).

Furthermore, Facebook makes your likes public for your Facebook friends. If you are logged into Facebook, it can assign the invocation of our page directly to your Facebook account. Even if you are not logged in or don’t have a Facebook account, your browser sends information (e.g. which web pages you have called up, your IP address) which is then stored by Facebook.

10. Privacy note for the use of Instagram

Our website also uses so-called social plugins („plugins“) operated by Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA („Instagram“). The plugins are marked with an Instagram logo, for example in the form of an „Instagram camera“.

When you visit a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser connects directly to Instagram’s servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Instagram directly to your browser and integrated into the page. Through this integration, Instagram receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have an Instagram profile or are currently not logged in to Instagram. This information (including your IP address) is sent from your browser directly to an Instagram server in the US and stored there. If you’re logged in to Instagram, Instagram can instantly associate your visit to our website with your Instagram account. If you interact with the plugins, for example, press the „Instagram“ button, this information is also transmitted directly to an Instagram server and stored there. The information will also be posted on your Instagram account and displayed there to your contacts.

Please log out if you do not want data to be transferred. For more information, please see the privacy policy (https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388) of Instagram.

If our company is subject to a legal obligation which makes it necessary to process personal data, such as for the purpose of meeting tax obligations, such processing is based on Art. 6 (I) c) GDPR. If the processing of personal data is not based on any of the lawful grounds referred to above, we only process data for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company (improving the performance of our business activities). We consistently ensure that such processing does not impair the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection and which override our legitimate interests.
