Our website uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that are sent from our web server to your browser and stored on your terminal device. They serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure.

You can prevent the use of cookies by setting your browser accordingly. However, you may then not be able to use all the functions of our website.

2.4 Contacting

If you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form on our website, the information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your request and for possible follow-up questions.

  1. Sharing your data

Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties if this is necessary for the processing of the contractual relationship or for the provision of the service. In these cases, however, the scope of the data transmitted is limited to the minimum required.

We reserve the right to change this privacy policy at any time in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations. Changes will be effective as soon as we publish them on our website. Please check this privacy policy periodically to stay informed of changes.

If the changes to the Privacy Policy are material and impact the way we process your personal data, we will notify you before the changes take effect.

  1. Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies that enable an analysis of your use of the website. 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.

We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code “anonymizeIp” to ensure anonymized collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). Your IP address will therefore be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area and thus anonymized. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser software. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link:

  1. Social media plugins

Our website uses social media plugins from various social networks, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. These plugins are usually identified by the respective logo of the corresponding social network.

When you call up a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of the respective social network. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly to your browser and integrated into the page. By integrating the plugins, the social networks receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website.

If you are logged into one of the social networks, the social network can assign the visit to your account. If you interact with the plugins, e.g. by clicking the “Like” button or by submitting a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to the social network and stored there.

If you do not want social networks to assign the data collected via our website directly to your profile, you must log out of the corresponding social network before visiting our website.

  1. Rights of the user

You have the right to request information about what personal data is stored about you at any time. Likewise, you have the right to correct incorrect data as well as to restrict processing or delete your personal data.

Furthermore, you have the right to revoke your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time. Please note that the revocation only takes effect for the future and the lawfulness of the processing up to the time of the revocation remains unaffected.

In addition, you have the right to data portability, i.e. you can receive your personal data in a structured, common and machine-readable format and transfer this data to another responsible party without hindrance from us.

To exercise your rights or if you have any questions about data protection, you can contact us at any time. The contact details can be found at the beginning of this privacy policy.

  1. Right of complaint to the supervisory authority

You have the right to complain to a supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of your personal data violates data protection regulations. The supervisory authority responsible for us is the data protection officer(s) of the federal state in which our company is based.

We reserve the right to change this privacy policy at any time in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations. You can always find the latest version on our website. If the changes to the privacy policy are material, we will notify you separately.
