If the processing does not serve to initiate or process a contract, our legitimate interest lies in improving the functionality of our website. The legal basis is then Article 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.

With closing your internet browser, these session cookies are deleted.

b) Third-party Cookies

Our website may also use cookies from partner companies with whom we work for the purpose of advertising, analysis or the functionalities of our website.

Please refer to the following information for details on this, in particular on the purposes and legal basis for processing such third-party cookies.

If you register for our free newsletter, the data you have requested for this purpose, i.e. your e-mail address and – optionally – your name and address, will be transmitted to us. At the same time, we save the IP address of the Internet connection from which you access our website, as well as the date and time of your registration. As part of the further registration process, we will obtain your consent to the sending of the newsletter, describe the content in detail and refer to this data protection declaration. We use the data collected in this way exclusively for sending the newsletter and will not passed them on to any third parties.

Contact requests / Contact possibility

If you contact us via the contact form or email, the data you provide will be used to process your request. The specification of the data is necessary for processing and answering your request – without this provision we cannot answer your request, or at most only to a limited extent.

The legal basis for this is Article 6 (1) (b) DSGVO.

Your data will be deleted if your request has been finally answered and the deletion does not conflict with any statutory retention requirements, e.g. in the event of a subsequent contract processing.

Social media Linking via graphic or text link

We also advertise presences on the social networks listed below on our website. The integration takes place via a linked graphic of the respective network. The use of this linked graphic prevents that when a website that has a social media application is called up, a connection is automatically established to the respective server of the social network in order to display a graphic of the respective network itself. The user is only forwarded to the service of the respective social network by clicking on the corresponding graphic.

After the user has been forwarded, information about the user is recorded by the respective network. It cannot be ruled out that the data collected in this way will be processed in the USA.

These are initially data such as the IP address, date, time and page visited. If the user is logged into his user account of the respective network during this time, the network operator can, if necessary, assign the information collected from the specific visit of the user to the user’s personal account. If the user interacts via a “share” button on the respective network, this information can be saved in the user’s personal user account and, if necessary, published. If the user wants to prevent the information collected from being directly assigned to his user account, he must log out before clicking on the graphic. It is also possible to configure the respective user account accordingly.

Usage and user-related information, such as IP address, location, time or frequency of visits to our website, are transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, we use Google Analytics with the so-called anonymization function. With this function, Google shortens the IP address within the EU or the EEA.

a so-called deactivation add-on along with further information on this. This add-on can be installed with common internet browsers and offers you further control over the data that Google collects when you visit our website. The add-on informs the JavaScript (ga.js) of Google Analytics that information about visiting our website should not be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, this does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analysis services.
