    Overview of processing
    The following table summarises the types of data processed and the purposes of their processing, and refers to the data subjects.

    Types of data processed
  • inventory data (e.g. names, addresses).
  • Content data (e.g. text entries, photographs, videos).
  • Contact data (e.g. e-mail, telephone numbers).
  • Meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses).
  • Usage data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times).
    Categories of data subjects
  • Employees (e.g. employees, applicants, former employees).
  • Interested parties.
  • communication partners.
  • customers.
  • Users (e.g. website visitors, users of online services).

    Purposes of processing
  • Visit action evaluation.
  • Office and organisational procedures.
  • Contact requests and communication.
  • Profiling (creation of user profiles).
  • remarketing.
  • Reach measurement (e.g. access statistics, recognition of returning visitors).
  • Tracking (e.g. interest/behaviour-related profiling, use of cookies).
    Applicable legal basis
    In the following, we provide the legal basis for the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), on the basis of which we process personal data. Please note that in addition to the regulations of the DSGVO, national data protection regulations may apply in your or our country of residence and domicile. Should more specific legal provisions apply in individual cases, we will inform you of these in the data protection declaration.
  • Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter a DSGVO) – The data subject has given his or her consent to the processing of personal data relating to him or her for one or more specific purposes.
  • Fulfilment of a contract and pre-contractual requests (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter b. FADP) – Processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken at the request of the data subject.
  • Legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f. FADP) – The processing is necessary in order to safeguard the legitimate interests of the controller or of a third party, unless the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require the protection of personal data outweigh those of the controller.

    National data protection regulations in Germany: In addition to the data protection regulations of the Basic Data Protection Regulation, national regulations on data protection apply in Germany. These include in particular the law on protection against misuse of personal data in data processing (Federal Data Protection Act – BDSG). In particular, the BDSG contains special regulations on the right to information, the right to deletion, the right of objection, the processing of special categories of personal data, processing for other purposes and transmission as well as automated decision making in individual cases including profiling. Furthermore, it regulates data processing for the purposes of the employment relationship (Section 26 BDSG), in particular with regard to the establishment, implementation or termination of employment relationships and the consent of employees. Furthermore, state data protection laws of the individual federal states may apply.
    We take appropriate technical and organisational measures in accordance with the legal requirements, taking into account the state of the art, the implementation costs and the nature, scope, circumstances and purposes of the processing, as well as the different probabilities of occurrence and the extent of the threat to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, in order to ensure a level of protection commensurate with the risk.
    These measures include, in particular, safeguarding the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling physical and electronic access to the data as well as access, input, disclosure, security of availability and segregation of data relating to them. Procedures have also been put in place to ensure that data subjects’ rights are respected, that data are deleted and that responses to data breaches are made. Furthermore, we take the protection of personal data into account as early as the development or selection of hardware, software and procedures in accordance with the principle of data protection, by designing technology and by using data protection-friendly default settings.
    SSL encryption (https): To protect your data transmitted via our online offer, we use SSL encryption. You can recognise such encrypted connections by the prefix https:// in the address line of your browser.

    Transmission and disclosure of personal data
    In the course of our processing of personal data, it may happen that the data is transferred to or disclosed to other bodies, companies, legally independent organisational units or persons. The recipients of this data may include, for example, payment institutions in the context of payment transactions, service providers commissioned with IT tasks or providers of services and content that are integrated into a website. In such cases we observe the legal requirements and in particular conclude appropriate contracts or agreements with the recipients of your data which serve to protect your data.

    Data processing in third countries
    If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA)) or if the processing takes place in the context of the use of services of third parties or the disclosure or transfer of data to other persons, bodies or companies, this will only take place in accordance with the legal requirements.
    Subject to express consent or transfer required by contract or by law, we will only process the data or have it processed in third countries with a recognised level of data protection, a contractual obligation through so-called standard protection clauses of the EU Commission, in the case of certifications or binding internal data protection regulations (Art. 44 to 49 DSGVO, information page of the EU Commission: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection_de ).
    Use of cookies
    Cookies are text files that contain data from visited websites or domains and are stored by a browser on the user’s computer. A cookie is primarily used to store information about a user during or after his visit within an online offer. The stored information can include, for example, the language settings on a website, the login status, a shopping basket or the place where a video was viewed. The term “cookies” also includes other technologies that perform the same functions as cookies (e.g. when user information is stored using pseudonymous online identifiers, also known as “user IDs”).

    The following cookie types and functions are distinguished:
  • Temporary cookies (also: session or session cookies): Temporary cookies are deleted at the latest after a user has left an online offer and closed his browser.
  • Permanent cookies: Permanent cookies remain stored even after the browser is closed. For example, the login status can be saved or preferred content can be displayed directly when the user visits a website again. Likewise, the interests of users used for reach measurement or marketing purposes can be stored in such a cookie.
  • First-party cookies: First-party cookies are set by us.
  • Third party cookies (also: third-party cookies): third-party cookies are mainly used by advertisers (so-called third parties) to process user information.
  • Necessary (also: essential or absolutely necessary) cookies: Cookies can be absolutely necessary for the operation of a website (e.g. to save logins or other user entries or for reasons of security).
  • First-party cookies: First-party cookies are set by ourselves.
  • Third party cookies (also: third party cookies): Third party cookies are mainly used by advertisers (so-called third parties) to process user information.
  • Necessary (also: essential or absolutely necessary) cookies: Cookies may be absolutely necessary for the operation of a website (e.g. to store logins or other user entries or for security reasons).
  • Statistical, marketing and personalisation cookies: Furthermore, cookies are generally also used in the context of range measurement and when the interests of a user or his behaviour (e.g. viewing certain content, using functions etc.) are stored in a user profile on individual web pages. Such profiles are used to show users e.g. content that corresponds to their potential interests. This procedure is also known as “tracking”, i.e. following the potential interests of users. If we use cookies or “tracking” technologies, we will inform you separately in our privacy policy or when you give your consent.

    Information on legal bases: The legal basis on which we process your personal data using cookies depends on whether we ask you for your consent. If this is the case and you consent to the use of cookies, the legal basis for processing your data is the declared consent. Otherwise, the data processed with the aid of cookies will be processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (e.g. in the commercial operation of our online offer and its improvement) or, if the use of cookies is necessary to fulfil our contractual obligations.

    Storage duration: Unless we provide you with explicit information on the storage duration of permanent cookies (e.g. within the framework of a so-called cookie opt-in), please assume that the storage duration can be up to two years.

    General information on revocation and objection (opt-out): Depending on whether processing is based on consent or legal permission, you have the opportunity at any time to revoke any consent given or to object to the processing of your data by cookie technologies (collectively referred to as “opt-out”). You can initially declare your objection by means of the settings of your browser, e.g. by deactivating the use of cookies (although this may also restrict the functionality of our online service). An objection to the use of cookies for online marketing purposes can also be declared by means of a variety of services, especially in the case of tracking, via the websites https://optout.aboutads.info and https://www.youronlinechoices.com/. In addition, you can receive further notices of objection in the context of the information on the service providers and cookies used.

    Processing of cookie data based on consent: Before we process or have processed data in the context of the use of cookies, we ask users for their consent, which can be revoked at any time. Before consent has not been given, we will only use cookies that are absolutely necessary for the operation of our online service.
  • Processed types of data: Usage data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times), meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses).
  • Persons concerned: Users (e.g. website visitors, users of online services).
  • Legal basis: Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter a DSGVO), legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f. DSGVO).

    Provision of the online service and web hosting
    In order to be able to provide our online offer securely and efficiently, we use the services of one or more web hosting providers from whose servers (or servers managed by them) the online offer can be accessed. For these purposes, we may use infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services as well as security and technical maintenance services.
    The data processed within the framework of the provision of the hosting offer may include all data relating to the users of our online offer, which are generated within the framework of use and communication. This regularly includes the IP address, which is necessary to be able to deliver the contents of online offers to browsers, and all entries made within our online offer or from websites.
    Collection of access data and log files: We ourselves (or our web hosting provider) collect data on every access to the server (so-called server log files). The server log files may include the address and name of the web pages and files called up, the date and time of the call-up, the amount of data transferred, notification of successful call-up, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page) and, as a rule, IP addresses and the requesting provider.
    The server log files can be used for security purposes, e.g. to avoid overloading the servers (especially in the case of abusive attacks, so-called DDoS attacks) and to ensure the capacity utilisation of the servers and their stability.
  • Processed data types: Content data (e.g. text entries, photographs, videos), usage data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times), meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses).
  • Persons concerned: Users (e.g. website visitors, users of online services).
  • Legal basis: legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f. DSGVO).
    Contact
    When contacting us (e.g. by contact form, e-mail, telephone or via social media), the data of the inquiring persons will be processed to the extent necessary to answer the contact enquiries and any requested measures.
    The answering of contact enquiries within the framework of contractual or pre-contractual relationships is carried out in order to fulfil our contractual obligations or to answer (pre)contractual enquiries and otherwise on the basis of the legitimate interest in answering the enquiries.
  • Processed data types: inventory data (e.g. names, addresses), contact data (e.g. e-mail, telephone numbers), content data (e.g. text entries, photographs, videos).
  • Persons concerned: Communication partners.
  • Purposes of processing: contact requests and communication.
  • Legal basis: Fulfilment of contract and pre-contractual enquiries (Art. 6 Paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. b. DSGVO), legitimate interests (Art. 6 Paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. f. DSGVO).

    Cloud services
    We use software services accessible via the Internet and running on the servers of their providers (so-called “cloud services”, also referred to as “Software as a Service”) for the following purposes: document storage and management, calendar management, e-mailing, spreadsheets and presentations, exchanging documents, content and information with specific recipients or publishing web pages, forms or other content and information, as well as chatting and participating in audio and video conferences.
    In this context, personal data may be processed and stored on the servers of the providers if they are part of communication processes with us or otherwise processed by us as set out in this privacy policy. This data may include, in particular, master data and contact details of users, data on procedures, contracts, other processes and their contents. The providers of the cloud services also process usage data and metadata which they use for security purposes and for service optimisation.
    If we provide forms or other documents and content for other users or publicly accessible websites with the help of the cloud services, the providers may store cookies on the users’ devices for web analysis purposes or to remember user settings (e.g. in the case of media control).
    Notes on legal bases: If we ask for consent to use the cloud services, the legal basis for processing is consent. Furthermore, their use can be a component of our (pre)contractual services, provided that the use of the cloud services has been agreed in this context. Otherwise, user data will be processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e., interest in efficient and secure administration and collaboration processes)
  • Processed data types: inventory data (e.g. names, addresses), contact data (e.g. e-mail, telephone numbers), content data (e.g. text entries, photographs, videos), usage data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times), meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses).
  • Persons concerned: Customers, employees (e.g. employees, applicants, former employees), interested parties, communication partners.
  • Purposes of processing: office and organisational procedures.
  • Legal bases: Consent (Art. 6 Paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO), fulfilment of contract and pre-contractual enquiries (Art. 6 Paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. b. DSGVO), legitimate interests (Art. 6 Paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. f. DSGVO).
    Services used and service providers:

Services used and service providers:

  • Google Cloud Services: cloud storage services; service providers: Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, parent company: Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; Website: https://cloud.google.com/; Privacy Policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy, Security Notice: https://cloud.google.com/security/privacy; Standard Contractual Clauses (ensuring a level of data protection when processing in third countries): https://cloud.google.com/terms/data-processing-terms; Additional Privacy Notice: https://cloud.google.com/terms/data-processing-terms.
    Web analysis, monitoring and optimisation
    Web analysis (also known as “reach measurement”) is used to evaluate the streams of visitors to our online offering and may include behaviour, interests or demographic information about visitors, such as age or gender, as pseudonymous values. With the help of the range analysis we can, for example, identify at what time our online offer or its functions or contents are most frequently used or invite reuse. We can also understand which areas require optimisation.
    In addition to web analysis, we can also use test procedures, e.g. to test and optimise different versions of our online offer or its components.
    For these purposes, so-called user profiles can be created and stored in a file (so-called “cookie”) or similar procedures with the same purpose can be used. This information may include, for example, content viewed, web pages visited and elements used on those pages, and technical details such as the browser used, the computer system used and information on usage times. If users have consented to the collection of their location data, this data may also be processed, depending on the provider.
    The IP addresses of users are also stored. However, we use an IP masking procedure (i.e., pseudonymisation by shortening the IP address) to protect the users. In general, no clear user data (such as e-mail addresses or names) are stored in the context of web analysis, A/B testing and optimisation, but pseudonyms. This means that we as well as the providers of the software used do not know the actual identity of the users, but only the information stored in their profiles for the purposes of the respective procedures.
    Notes on legal bases: If we ask users for their consent to use the third party providers, the legal basis for processing data is consent. Otherwise, the users’ data will be processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in efficient, economic and recipient-friendly services). In this context we would also like to draw your attention to the information on the use of cookies in this data protection declaration.
  • Persons concerned: Users (e.g. website visitors, users of online services).
  • Purposes of processing: range measurement (e.g. access statistics, recognition of returning visitors), tracking (e.g. interest/behaviour-related profiling, use of cookies), visitor action evaluation, profiling (creation of user profiles).
  • Security measures: IP-Masking (pseudonymisation of the IP address).
  • Legal basis: Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter a DSGVO), legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f. DSGVO).
    Presence in social networks (social media)
    We maintain online presences within social networks and process user data in this context in order to communicate with the users active there or to offer information about us.
    Please note that user data may be processed outside the European Union. This can result in risks for the users, because the enforcement of the users’ rights could be made more difficult.

Furthermore, user data within social networks is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. Thus, for example, user profiles can be created on the basis of user behaviour and the resulting interests of the users. The user profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements within and outside the networks that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the users’ computers, in which the usage behaviour and interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, data may also be stored in the user profiles independently of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to these).
For a detailed presentation of the respective forms of processing and the possibilities of objection (opt-out), we refer to the data protection declarations and information provided by the operators of the respective networks.
Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of data subject rights, we point out that these can be most effectively asserted with the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users in each case and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information. Should you nevertheless require assistance, you can contact us.

  • Processed data types: inventory data (e.g. names, addresses), contact data (e.g. e-mail, telephone numbers), content data (e.g. text entries, photographs, videos), usage data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times), meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses).
  • Persons concerned: Users (e.g. website visitors, users of online services).
  • Processing purposes: contact requests and communication, tracking (e.g. interest/behavioural profiling, use of cookies), remarketing.
  • Legal basis: Legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f. DSGVO).
    Services used and service providers:
  • Instagram : Social network; service provider: Instagram Inc, 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA; website: https://www.instagram.com; privacy policy: https://instagram.com/about/legal/privacy.
    Deletion of data
    The data processed by us will be deleted in accordance with the legal requirements as soon as their consent permitted for processing is revoked or other permissions cease to apply (e.g. if the purpose for which the data were processed ceases to apply or if they are not necessary for the purpose).
    Unless the data are deleted because they are required for other and legally permissible purposes, their processing is limited to these purposes. This means that the data will be blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be retained for reasons of commercial or tax law or that are required to be retained for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person.
    Further information on the deletion of personal data can also be provided in the individual data protection notes of this data protection declaration.
    Amendment and updating of the data protection declaration
    We ask you to inform yourself regularly about the content of our data protection declaration. We will adapt the data protection declaration as soon as changes in the data processing carried out by us make this necessary. We will inform you as soon as the changes make it necessary for you to take action to cooperate (e.g. to give your consent) or to receive other individual notification.
    If we provide addresses and contact information of companies and organisations in this data protection declaration, please note that the addresses may change over time and please check the information before contacting us.
    Rights of the persons concerned
    As a data subject, you are entitled to various rights under the DSGVO, which result in particular from Art. 15 to 21 DSGVO:
  • Right of objection: You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you that is carried out pursuant to Art. 6, paragraph 1, letter e or f of the DPA; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. If the personal data concerning you are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing, including profiling, insofar as it is linked to such direct marketing.
  • Right to withdraw consent: You have the right to withdraw any consent you have given at any time.
  • Right of access: You have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether or not data in question is being processed and to obtain information about such data and further information and a copy of the data in accordance with the law.
  • Right of rectification: You have the right to request the completion of data concerning you or the rectification of incorrect data concerning you, in accordance with the law.
  • Right to erasure and limitation of processing: You have the right to request, in accordance with the law, the immediate erasure of data concerning you or, alternatively, in accordance with the law, the limitation of processing of the data.
  • Right to data transferability: You have the right to obtain, in accordance with the law, data concerning you which you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request that it be transferred to another controller.
  • Complaints to the supervisory authority: you also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State in which you are habitually resident, your place of work or the place where the alleged infringement occurred, in accordance with the law, if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you is in breach of the DPA.
    Definitions of terms
    This section provides an overview of the terms used in this privacy policy. Many of the terms are taken from the law and defined above all in Art. 4 DSGVO. The legal definitions are binding. The following explanations, on the other hand, are primarily intended to help you understand them. The terms are sorted alphabetically.
  • Conversion tracking: “Conversion tracking” is a method for determining the effectiveness of marketing measures. For this purpose, a cookie is usually stored on the user’s devices within the websites on which the marketing measures are carried out and then retrieved again on the target website. For example, we can then track whether the ads we have placed on other websites have been successful).
  • IP-Masking: “IP-Masking” is a method by which the last octet, i.e. the last two numbers of an IP address, is deleted so that the IP address can no longer be used to uniquely identify a person. IP masking is therefore a means of pseudonymising processing methods, particularly in online marketing
  • Personal data: “Personal data” shall mean any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as “data subject”); an identifiable person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, a location data, an online identifier (e.g. a cookie) or one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
  • Profiling: “Profiling” is any automated processing of personal data which consists of using personal data to analyse, evaluate or predict certain personal aspects relating to a natural person (depending on the type of profiling, this may include information about age, sex, location and movement data, interaction with websites and their content, shopping behaviour, social interactions with other people) (e.g. interests in certain content or products, click behaviour on a website or location). Cookies and web beacons are often used for profiling purposes.
  • Reach measurement: Reach measurement (also known as web analytics) is used to evaluate the flow of visitors to an online offering and can include the behaviour or interests of visitors in certain information, such as the content of websites. With the help of reach analysis, website owners can, for example, identify at what time visitors visit their website and what content they are interested in. This enables them to better adapt the contents of the website to the needs of their visitors. Pseudonymous cookies and web beacons are often used for the purpose of range analysis in order to recognise returning visitors and thus obtain more precise analyses of the use of an online offer.
  • Remarketing: One speaks of “remarketing” or “retargeting”, for example, when it is noted for advertising purposes in which products a user has been interested on a website in order to remind the user of these products on other websites, e.g. in advertisements.
  • Tracking: We speak of “tracking” when the behaviour of users can be traced across several online offers. As a rule, behavioural and interest information regarding the online offers used is stored in cookies or on servers of the providers of the tracking technologies (so-called profiling). This information can then be used, for example, to display advertisements to users that are likely to correspond to their interests.
  • Responsible person: “Responsible person” means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data.
  • Processing: “processing” means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means. The term is broad and covers practically all processing of data, whether it be collection, analysis, storage, communication or deletion.
