Our website may be used without entering personal information. Different rules may apply to certain services on our site, however, and are explained separately below. We collect personal information from you (e.g. name, address, email address, telephone number, etc.) in accordance with the provisions of German data protection statutes. Information is considered personal if it can be associated exclusively to a specific natural person. The legal framework for data protection may be found in the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG). The provisions below serve to provide information as to the manner, extent and purpose for collecting, using and processing personal information by the provider.

Please be aware that data transfer via the internet is subject to security risks and, therefore, complete protection against third-party access to transferred data cannot be ensured.

Cookies

Our website makes use of so-called cookies in order to recognize repeat use of our website by the same user/internet connection subscriber. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser downloads and stores on your computer. They are used to improve our website and services. In most cases these are so-called “session cookies” that are deleted once you leave our website.

To an extent, however, these cookies also pass along information used to automatically recognize you. Recognition occurs through an IP address saved to the cookies. The information thereby obtained is used to improve our services and to expedite your access to the website.

You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser software accordingly. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of our website.

Use of Google Analytics with anonymization

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google“. Google Analytics employs so-called “cookies“, text files that are stored to your computer in order to facilitate an analysis of your use of the site.

The information generated by these cookies, such as time, place and frequency of your visits to our site, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google’s location in the US and stored there.

We use Google Analytics with an IP anonymization feature on our website. In doing so, Google abbreviates and thereby anonymizes your IP address before transferring it from member states of the European Union or signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

Google will use this information to evaluate your usage of our site, to compile reports on website activity for us, and to provide other services related to website- and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or to the extent this data is processed by third parties on Google´s behalf.

Google states that it will in never associate your IP address with other data held by Google. You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser software accordingly. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of our website.

Google also offers a disabling option for the most common browsers, thus providing you with greater control over the data which is collected and processed by Google. If you enable this option, no information regarding your website visit is transmitted to Google Analytics. However, the activation does not prevent the transmission of information to us or to any other web analytics services we may use. For more information about the disabling option provided by Google, and how to enable this option, visit https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

LinkedIn

Together with the operator of the social network LinkedIn (LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland), we are a joint controller within the meaning of the GDPR. A joint responsibility agreement has been concluded with LinkedIn, setting out provisions, among other things, on the conditions for using the LinkedIn page. The LinkedIn terms of use, as well as the other terms, conditions and guidelines listed at the end of these terms of use, are authoritative. The processing of the information is designed, among other things, to allow LinkedIn to improve its system of advertising that it distributes via its network. On the other hand, it is intended to enable us, as the operator of the LinkedIn page, to obtain statistics that LinkedIn compiles based on visits to our LinkedIn page. We use this information to manage the marketing of our activities. For example, it allows us to learn about the profiles of visitors who like our LinkedIn page or use applications on the page so that we can provide them with more relevant content and develop features that may be of greater interest to them. In addition, to help us understand how we can use our LinkedIn page to better achieve our goals, we have demographic and geographical analyses performed and made available to us based on the information collected. We can use this information to display targeted interest-based advertisements without having any direct knowledge of the visitor’s identity. If visitors use LinkedIn on several devices, the collection and analysis process can also span more than one device if they are registered visitors who are logged in to their own profile. The visitor statistics created are transmitted to us exclusively in anonymised form. We do not have access to the underlying data. We use LinkedIn to present ourselves to LinkedIn users and other interested persons who visit our LinkedIn page and, where appropriate, to communicate with them. The processing of users’ personal data is based on our legitimate interests in optimising the presentation of our company (Article 6(1f) GDPR). It is possible that some of the information collected may also be processed outside the European Union by LinkedIn Corporation based in the US. Standard contractual clauses have been concluded with LinkedIn for this purpose. We do not pass on any personal data ourselves. LinkedIn users can influence the extent to which their user behaviour can be recorded when they visit our LinkedIn page by configuring the settings for advertising preferences. LinkedIn offers additional options in the LinkedIn account settings. The processing of information using the cookie used by LinkedIn can also be prevented by disabling cookies from third-party providers or from LinkedIn in your own browser settings. The agreements concluded with LinkedIn, also on shared responsibility, largely stipulate that requests for information are made, and further rights by data subjects asserted, directly with LinkedIn, as this is the process that makes the most sense. This is because, as the provider of the social network and the option of including LinkedIn pages there, LinkedIn alone has direct access to the necessary information and can also take any necessary measures and provide information immediately. Should our support be required, however, we can be contacted at any time. Further information on our contact details, the rights that data subjects have vis-à-vis us and how we process personal data in other respects can be found here in the data privacy statement.

Information/Cancellation/Deletion

On the basis of the Federal Data Protection Act, you may contact us at no cost if you have questions relating to the collection, processing or use of your personal information, if you wish to request the correction, blocking or deletion of the same, or if you wish to cancel explicitly granted consent. Please note that you have the right to have incorrect data corrected or to have personal data deleted, where such claim is not barred by any legal obligation to retain this data.
