Different personal data is collected when you use this website. Personal data is all data with which you can be personally identified. This Privacy Policy explains which data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how it happens and for what purpose.

We would like to point out that online data transfers (e.g. email communication) may be subject to security vulnerabilities. It is not possible to completely protect data from being accessed by third parties.

Revoking your consent to data processing

Many data processing processes are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke your already given consent at any time. Simply notify us by email. The legality of the data processing completed prior to the revocation remains unaffected.

Right to object to data processing in special cases, as well as to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)

If the data processing is based on Art. 6(1)(e) or (f) of the GDPR, you have the right to revoke your consent to the processing of your personal data, for whatever reasons may arise, at any time; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. You can find the respective legal basis for the processing within this Privacy Policy.

If you revoke your consent, we will no longer process your personal data, unless we can show compelling, legitimate grounds for the processing, which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the processing serves the establishment, exercising or defence of legal claims (revocation in compliance with Art. 21(1) of the GDPR).

If your personal data is processed for the purposes of direct marketing, you have the right to revoke your consent to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of this kind of marketing at any time; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is in conjunction with this kind of direct marketing. If you revoke your consent, your personal data will then no longer be used for the purposes of direct marketing (revocation in compliance with Art. 21(2) of the GDPR).

Right of complaint to the responsible supervisory authority

In the case of infringement of the GDPR, the data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular the one located in the member state of their habitual home, their place of work or the place where the alleged infringement occurred. The right of complaint exists without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.

Right to data portability

You have the right to request that we provide you or a third party with the data, which we automatically collect based on your consent or to fulfil a contract, in a commonly used, machine-readable format. Insofar as you request the direct transfer of the data to a different controller, this is only possible if it is technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses an SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transfer of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you may send to us, the site operators. You can identify an encrypted connection by the address window in the browser changing from “http://” to “https://” and by a padlock appearing in your browser bar.

When the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, blocking, deletion and correction

The applicable legal regulations give you a permanent right of information regarding the personal data that is stored, its origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing, as well as a right of correction, blocking or erasure of this data. You can contact us at any time regarding this and other questions concerning personal data. Please use the address provided in the Legal Notice section.

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data. Please contact us at any time using the address provided in the Legal Notice if you have any questions regarding this. The right to restriction of processing arises in the following cases:

• If you contest the accuracy of your personal data that we have stored, we generally need time to check the data. During this period, you have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data.
• If the processing of your personal data occurred or is occurring unlawfully, you can demand the restriction of data processing rather than erasure.
• If we no longer need your personal data, but you need the data to exercise, defend or establish legal claims, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data rather than its erasure.
• If you have revoked your consent in compliance with Art. 21(1) of the GDPR, there must be a balancing of your and our interests. Until it has been established whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data – aside from its storage – may only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of substantial public interest to the European Union or a member state.

 

3. Data collection on our website

Cookies

Server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically shares with us. This information is:

• Browser type and browser version 
 • Operating system in use 
 • Referrer URL
• Host name of the computer accessing the page
• Time of the server request
 • IP address

This data is not combined with data from other sources.

This data is collated on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in presenting his/her website in a technically faultless manner and in optimising his/her website – the server log files must be collected for this purpose.

Contact form

If you send us an enquiry via the contact form, the information that you provide on the enquiry form, including the contact details that you provide, are saved for the purposes of processing the enquiry and in case there are follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your express permission.

As such, the processing of the information provided via the contact form is solely based on your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) of the GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. Simply notify us by email. The legality of the data processing completed prior to the revocation remains unaffected.

The information provided in the contact form remains stored by us until you request its erasure, revoke your consent to it being stored or the purpose of the data storage no longer applies (e.g. once your enquiry has been dealt with). Mandatory legal regulations – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

Enquiries via email, telephone or fax

If you contact us via email, telephone or fax, your enquiry, including all of the personal data (name, enquiry) resulting from this, will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your enquiry. We will not pass on this data without your express permission.

This data is processed on the basis of Art. 6(1)(b) of the GDPR, insofar as your enquiry is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is required to perform pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) of the GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR), as we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of enquiries directed at us.

The information that you provide to us in the contact form remains with us until you request its erasure, revoke your consent to it being stored or the purpose of the data storage no longer applies (e.g. once your enquiry has been dealt with). Mandatory legal regulations – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.

 

4. Analysis tools and advertising

Matomo (formerly Piwik)

This website utilises the open source web analysis service Matomo. Matomo uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files, which are saved on your computer and allow for an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website is saved on our server. The IP address is made anonymous prior to the information being saved. 

Matomo cookies remain saved on your device until you delete them.

The storing of Matomo cookies and the use of this analysis tool are based on Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the anonymised analysis of user behaviour, in order to both optimise his/her website and marketing.

The information generated by the cookies about your use of this website is not passed on to third parties. You can prevent the saving of cookies through a setting on your web browser software. However, we would like to point out that if you turn off cookies, you will not be able to use all of the functions of this website to their full extent.

If you do not agree to the saving and use of your data, you can deactivate the saving and usage here. In this case, an opt-out cookie will be stored in your browser, which prevents Matomo from saving user data. If you delete your cookies, the Matomo opt-out cookie will also be deleted. You will need to reactivate the opt-out on your next visit to our website.

 

5. Plugins and tools

YouTube with extended data protection

Our website uses plugins from the YouTube website. This website is operated by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
We use YouTube in the extended data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode means that YouTube does not save any information about visitors to this website before they view the video. On the other hand, the extended data protection mode does not prevent data being passed on to YouTube partners. Thus, for example, YouTube connects to the Google DoubleClick network – regardless of whether you watch a video.

As soon as you start a YouTube video on our website, a connection is established with the YouTube servers. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you are giving YouTube permission to assign your browsing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
Furthermore, once you have started watching a video, YouTube can store various cookies on your device. YouTube can use these cookies to obtain information about visitors to our website. This information is used, amongst other things, to record video statistics, to improve user-friendliness and to prevent fraud. The cookies remain saved on your device until you delete them.
In certain cases, additional data processing processes may be triggered once you start watching a YouTube video upon which we have no influence.
The use of YouTube is based on an interest in presenting our online services in an attractive way. This represents a legitimate interest in compliance with Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR.
For more information about data protection at YouTube, please see the provider’s Privacy Policy at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

Google Web Fonts

In order to create a uniform presentation of fonts, this website uses so-called Web Fonts provided by Google. Google Fonts are installed locally. No contact is made with Google’s servers.

Google Maps (with consent)

This site uses the Google Maps service via an API. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

In order to guarantee data protection on our website, Google Maps is deactivated the first time you visit our website. A direct connection to the Google servers is only established if you activate Google Maps yourself (consent in accordance with Art. 6(1)(a) of the GDPR).

This prevents your data being sent to Google the first time you enter the website.

Once activated, Google Maps will save your IP address. This is then generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and saved there. Once Google Maps has been activated, the owner of this website has no influence on this transfer of data.

For more information on the handling of user data, please see Google’s Privacy Policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

 

6. Social media, tools and third-party content

Online presence in social media

We maintain an online presence on social networks and platforms in order to communicate with customers, interested parties and users there and to be able to inform them about our services. When the different networks and platforms are accessed, the terms and conditions and privacy policies of the respective operators apply.

We use the social media management tool Falcon.io from provider Falcon.io ApS, H.C. Andersens boulevard 27, 1st floor, 1553 Copenhagen V, Denmark, with the functions Publish, Engage, Listen, Audience and Measure, on the basis of our legitimate interest in line with Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR and a data processing agreement in line with Art. 28(3)(1) of the GDPR. It allows us to publish network, platform and channel-specific content, to process user reactions, to search the social networks and platforms for mentions and to analyse all interactions with us and our measures. Each of your interactions with our online presence within social networks and platforms results in your data that is stored in the relevant user profiles being saved. This includes name, gender, profile picture, profile URL, handle/username. Furthermore, the time that you interact with our online presence is also recorded.
