Wenn Sie unsere Website betrachten möchten, erheben wir die folgenden Daten, die für uns technisch erforderlich sind, um Ihnen unsere Website anzuzeigen und die Stabilität und Sicherheit zu gewährleisten (Rechtsgrundlage ist Art. 6 Abs. 1 S. 1 lit. f DS-GVO):
- IP adress
- Date and time of your request
- Contents of the request (concrete page)
- Access status/HTTP status code
- amount of data transferred in each case
- Website from which the request originates browser
- Operating system and its interface
- Language and version of the browser software.
(4) In addition, we also use temporary cookies to optimise user-friendliness, which are stored on your end device for a specific period of time. If you visit our site again to make use of our services, it is automatically recognized that you have already been with us and which inputs and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.
(6) The data processed by cookies are necessary for the purposes mentioned to safeguard our legitimate interests and those of third parties pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
(7) Most browsers automatically accept cookies. However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or a message always appears before a new cookie is created. Complete deactivation of cookies may, however, prevent you from using all the functions of our website.
§ 4 Use of Google Analytics
(1) This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA where it will be shortened. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.
(2) The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
(4) As an alternative to the browser add-on, in particular for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent your information from being collected in the future when you visit this site. The opt-out cookie applies only to this browser and only to our website and is placed on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you will need to set the opt-out cookie again.
(5) This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This shortens the processing of IP addresses, thus excluding the possibility of personal references. If the data collected about you is related to a person, this is excluded immediately and the personal data is deleted immediately.
(6) We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. The statistics obtained allow us to improve our services and make them more interesting for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.
(6) Third party information: Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001.
(7) Further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics can be found in the Google Analytics Help (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de).
§ 5 Social Media Plug-ins
(1) We are currently using the following social media plug-ins: [Facebook, Twitter, Xing]. We use the so-called two-click solution. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the plug-ins. You can recognize the provider of the plug-in by the mark on the box above his initial letter or the logo. We offer you the possibility to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only if you click on the marked field and thereby activate it will the plug-in provider receive the information that you have called up the corresponding website of our online service. In addition, the data mentioned under § 3 of this declaration will be transmitted. In the case of Facebook and Xing, the IP address is made anonymous immediately after collection, according to information provided by the respective providers in Germany. When the plug-in is activated, personal data is transferred from you to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (in the case of US providers in the USA). Since the plug-in provider collects data in particular via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies via your browser’s security settings before clicking on the grayed-out box.
(2) We have no influence on the collected data and data processing procedures, nor are we aware of the full scope of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We also do not have any information on the deletion of the collected data by the plug-in provider.
(3) The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses these for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) to display demand-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. Through the plug-ins, we offer you the opportunity to interact with social networks and other users so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.
(4) The data transfer takes place regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, your data collected by us will be assigned directly to your existing account with the plug-in provider. If you press the activated button and, for example, link the page, the plug-in provider also stores this information in your user account and communicates it publicly to your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as this allows you to avoid being assigned to your profile by the plug-in provider.
(5) Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the following data protection declarations of these providers. There you will also find further information on your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy.

§ 6 Google+ Plug-in
Our website uses so-called social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network Google+, which is operated by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). For example, the plugins can be recognized by buttons with the character “+1” on a white or colored background. An overview of the Google plugins and their appearance can be found here: https://developers.google.com/+/plugins. If you call up a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Google’s servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Google directly to your browser and integrated into the page. Through the integration, Google receives the information that your browser has called the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a profile on Google+ or are not currently logged in to Google+. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged in at Google+, Google can assign the visit of our website directly to your Google+ profile. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the “+1” button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Google server and stored there. The information is also published on Google+ and displayed to your contacts there. The data processing operations described are carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit.f DSGVO on the basis of Google’s legitimate interests in the display of personalised advertising in order to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website and to tailor the service to meet your needs. If you do not want Google to associate the data collected via our website directly with your profile on Google+, you must log out of Google+ before visiting our website. You can also opt out of the Google+ plugin loading process and thus the data processing operations described above by using future add-ons for your browser, such as the “NoScript” script blocker (http://noscript.net/). Google LLC, based in the United States, is certified for the U.S. Privacy Shield Agreement, which ensures compliance with EU data protection standards. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google as well as your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy can be found in Google’s data protection information: https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

§ 13 General information
We also take internal company data protection very seriously.
The relevant legal regulations require that personal data be processed in such a way that the rights of the persons affected by the processing to confidentiality and integrity of their data are guaranteed. These rules prohibit the unauthorized or unlawful processing of personal data or the intentional or unintentional breach of the security of the processing in a manner that results in destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access. Our employees have therefore been obliged by us to secrecy and in particular to comply with the provisions of data protection law to maintain confidentiality in accordance with Art. 5 Para. 1 f, Art. 32 Para. 4 Data Protection Basic Regulation (DS-GVO).
Accordingly, employees are prohibited from processing or using personal data without authorisation or from making such data accessible to third parties in any form whatsoever.

A given consent can be revoked at any time. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent given to us before the DSGVO came into force, i.e. before 25 May 2018. The revocation of a consent only takes effect for the future and does not affect the legality of the data processed until the revocation.

Service providers and vicarious agents employed by us may also receive data for these purposes. These are companies in the categories IT services, logistics, printing services, telecommunications, consulting as well as sales and marketing.

5. How long will my data be stored?
We process and store your personal data as long as this is necessary for the fulfilment of our contractual and legal obligations. It should be noted that our business relationship is a continuing obligation, which is intended to last for years.
If the data are no longer required for the fulfilment of contractual or legal obligations, they are regularly deleted, unless their – temporary – further processing is necessary for the following purposes:
- Fulfilment of commercial and tax retention obligations, which may result, for example, from: Commercial Code (HGB), Tax Code (AO), Money Laundering Act (GwG). The time limits specified there for storage and documentation are usually two to ten years.
