Collection and Processing of Personal Data

In principle, you can use our online offering without disclosing your identity. If we query personal data on the web presence, e.g. as part of contact forms or when you log in or register (such as name, address or e-mail address), this is principally done on a voluntary basis.

By sending this information to us, you agree that it may be used for own business purposes (dispatch of the requested mate-rials/information, processing for advertising and market research purposes), unless you objected to this option. You may withdraw with us your consent once given us at any time with effect for the future.

The legal basis for these processing operations is your consent based on point (a) of Art. 6(1) GDPR. You may withdraw with us your consent voluntarily given us at any time with effect for the future. As long as you do not withdraw your consent, we process your data for these purposes.

Forwarding of the Data

Any forwarding to third parties for commercial or non-commercial purposes will explicitly not take place without your express consent. To operate the website, we deploy a processor who, however, was obligated by contract in compliance with data protection law and must not use the data for own purposes.

Cookies

This website uses “cookies”. Cookies are text files that are stored on your computer and allow for an analysis of how you use the web presence and that automatically recognise you upon your next visit. You can prevent the installation of the cookies by setting your browser accordingly. As the case may be, this may result in you not being able to use all offerings in full.

Logging

Logs are created and processed for statistical purposes upon any access to the web presence, with the individual user re-maining anonymous:

  • referrer (website with the link you used to get on this web presence)
  • search terms (for search engines as referrer)
  • IP evaluated to determine the country of origin and provider
  • browser, operating system, installed plug-ins and screen resolution
  • time spent on the websites

This data is processed by us based on our legitimate interest under point (f) of Art. 6(1) GDPR for the following purposes:

  • to ensure smooth establishment of a connection to the web presence,
  • to ensure convenient use of our web presence,
  • to evaluate system security and stability and
  • for other administrative purposes.

We reserve the right to verify this data afterwards if we become aware of concrete indications for any unlawful use. The data is erased without delay once it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose.

Liability for Own Contents

The contents of these websites were prepared with utmost care. We may, however, not accept any warranty for the accuracy, integrity and topicality of the contents. As a service provider, we are responsible for own contents on these websites under the general laws.

Liability for Links (Contents of Third-Party Providers)

Cross-references (“links”) to the contents kept available by other providers are to be distinguished from these own contents. Since we do not have any influence on their content, the respective provider or operator of the websites is always responsible for the contents of the linked websites.

Data Subject Rights

We herewith inform you that you have the right towards us to access the relevant personal data, the right to request rectifica-tion or erasure or restriction of processing or to object to the processing as well as the right to data portability in accordance with Articles 15 et seqq. GDPR under the prerequisites defined there. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a su-pervisory authority in accordance with Article 77 GDPR if you take the view that the processing of the personal data concern-ing you violates this Regulation. Where processing is based on point (a) of Article 6(1) GDPR or point (a) of Arti-cle 9(2) GDPR (consent), you further have the right to withdraw consent at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of pro-cessing based on consent before its withdrawal.

Amendments to our Data Protection Provisions

We reserve the right to amend this privacy policy from time to time to ensure its consistent compliance with the current legal requirements or to implement changes in our services in the privacy policy, e.g. by launching new services. The new privacy policy will then apply to your next visit.

Google Maps

To simplify your journey to us, we offer you to use Google Maps to illustrate maps and to create route maps. Google Maps is provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. These websites are identified to you accordingly.

By using this service, you agree to the collection, processing and use of both the data collected in the process and the data entered by you by Google. The Terms of Service for Google Maps are available at https://www.google.com/intl/en_gb/help/terms_maps/ [external website].

Web Analysis with Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cook-ies”, i.e. text files which are stored on your computer and allow for an analysis of the use of the website by you. The infor-mation generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your shortened IP address) is transferred to a serv-er of Google in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information to analyse how you use the website, to compile reports about the website activities for the website operators and to render further services associated with the use of the website and of the Internet. If legally required, or where third parties process such data on behalf of Google, Google will also transmit this information to third parties. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data stored by Google in any case.

You may object to the use of your data by Google Analytics by installing an ‘add-on’ in your browser. To that end, you may follow the link below to the website of Google: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB [external website].

Matomo

Scope of data processing
We use the open source software tool Matomo on our website to analyze the surfing behavior of our users. When individual pages of our website are accessed, the following data is stored:

  • 3 bytes of the IP address of the user’s accessing system
  • the website accessed
  • the website from which the user accessed the website (referrer)
  • the subpages that are accessed from the accessed website
  • the time spent on the website
  • the frequency with which the website is accessed
  • The software runs exclusively on the servers of our website. This data is only stored there. The data is not passed on to third parties. The software is set so that the IP addresses are not stored in full, but the last byte of the IP address is masked (e.g. 192.168.100.xxx). In this way, it is no longer possible to assign the shortened IP address to the calling computer.

Legal basis
The legal basis for the processing of users’ personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Purpose of the data processing
The processing of this personal data enables us to analyze the surfing behavior of our users. By evaluating the data obtained, we are able to compile information about the use of the individual components of our website. This helps us to constantly improve our website and its user-friendliness. These purposes also constitute our legitimate interest in processing the data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. By anonymizing the IP address, the interest of users in the protection of their personal data is sufficiently taken into account.

Possibility of objection and removal
We offer our users the option of opting out of the analysis process on our website. To do so, you must follow the corresponding link. In this way, a cookie is set on your system which signals to our system not to store the user’s data. If you delete the corresponding cookie from your own system in the meantime, you must set the opt-out cookie again.
You can find more information on the privacy settings of the Matomo software under the following link: https://matomo.org/docs/privacy/.

You may choose to prevent this website from aggregating and analyzing the actions you take here. Doing so will protect your privacy, but will also prevent the owner from learning from your actions and creating a better experience for you and other users.

Facebook

Our website contains links to the Facebook website. The pages are operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd. (4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland). Instead of using Facebook plug-ins, we decided to only link to Facebook to ensure that personal data concerning you will not be automatically transferred to Facebook when you visit our website. This technical solution also prevents that related personal data concerning you is automatically processed by us. These links also mean that Facebook will not process your personal data until you actively click on the Facebook button. Where you have already been logged into your Facebook account when accessing our web presence, however, Facebook will already process at least information on which of our web pages you have visited at what time and with what browser using your IP address. Where legally required or to the extent that third parties process such data on behalf of Facebook, Facebook will transmit this information to third parties, e.g. US authorities, where appropriate. We do not have any influence on the nature and extent of your personal data processed by Facebook.

We will not collect personal data concerning you via Facebook until you become active and disclose your personal data on our Facebook fan page jointly controlled by Facebook and us. By indicating data on our Facebook page, you give us your consent to process this data under point (a) of Art. 6(1) GDPR.

Further information on the handling of your data can be found in the Facebook Data Policy at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy [external page].

LinkedIn 

Our website contains links to the LinkedIn website. The pages are operated by LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland. Instead of using plug-ins, we only link to LinkedIn. When you visit our website, your personal data will hence not be automatically transferred to LinkedIn. These links mean that LinkedIn will not process your personal data until you actively click on the LinkedIn button. Where legally required or to the extent that third parties process such data on behalf of LinkedIn, LinkedIn transmits this information to third parties, e.g. US authorities, where appropriate. We do not have any influence on the nature and extent of your personal data processed by LinkedIn.

Further information on the handling of your data can be found in the LinkedIn Privacy Policy at https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy [external page].

XING

This web presence contains links to the XING website. The pages are operated by XING AG, Dammtorstraße 29-32, 20354 Hamburg, Germany. Instead of using plug-ins, we only link to the XING website. When you visit our website, your personal data will hence not be automatically transferred to XING. These mere links mean that XING will not process your personal data until you actively click on the XING button. If you are logged into your XING account when accessing our web presence, however, XING processes personal data concerning you. We do not have any influence on the nature and extent of your personal data processed by XING.

Further information on the handling of your data can be found in the XING Privacy Policy at https://privacy.xing.com/en/privacy-policy [external page].

Microsoft Clarity

We work with Microsoft Clarity and Microsoft Advertising to track how you use and interact with our website using behavioral metrics, heatmaps and session replay to improve and market our products and services. Website usage data is collected using first and third-party cookies and other tracking technologies to determine the popularity of products/services and online activity.
