In some cases, we need your name and address as well as further information to be able to offer you the service you require.

The same applies if we supply you with informative material on request or if we answer your enquiries. We will always notify you in such cases. Otherwise, we only save data that you have automatically or voluntarily submitted to us.

The legal basis for the use of cookies is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR or, for necessary cookies, our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interests are in maintaining the functionality and security of the website, protection against misuse and improving our service.

Of course, you can also visit our website without accepting cookies. If you do not want your computer to be recognised the next time you visit, you can also refuse the use of cookies by changing the settings in your browser to “refuse cookies”. The respective procedure can be found in the settings of your browser. If you reject the use of cookies, however, there may be restrictions on the use of some areas of our website.

Withdraw or change your cookie consent and get more information about the functional duration of the individual cookies.

Google

Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Tag Manager. The Tag Manager does not collect personal data. The tool activates other tags, which may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If you have made a deactivation at the domain or cookie level, it will continue to persist for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager. You can find Google’s privacy policy for this tool at: https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/tag-manager/

Google Analytics with anonymisation functionality Part

On our website, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service by Google Ireland Limited hereinafter referred to as “Google”. Google Analytics uses so-called “Cookies”, which are text files that are saved on your computer that enable an analysis of your use of the website.

The information generated by these cookies, such as time, location and frequency of your visits to the website, including IP address, are transmitted to Google and saved there.

On our website, we use Google Analytics with the “_gat._anonymizeIp” tag. Through this, your IP address will already be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other member states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google Inc. server in the USA and anonymised there.

Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your usage of our website, compiling reports on website activities for us, and carrying out further services relating to website activity and Internet usage. Google may also pass this information on to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.

Google will not, according to its own account, associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

For more information on the use of cookies and your consent withdrawal options on our website, please refer to the “Cookies” section.

Google also offers an opt-out add-on for the most popular browsers, which gives you more control over what information Google collects about the websites you visit. The add-on indicates to the JavaScript (ga.js) of Google Analytics that no information about the website visit should be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analytics services we may use. For further information on installing the browser Add-On, please click on the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB

If you visit our website from a mobile device (smartphone or tablet), you will need to click this link instead to prevent Google Analytics from tracking you within this site in the future. This is also possible as an alternative to the above browser Add-On. By clicking the link, an opt-out cookie is set in your browser and is valid only for this browser and this domain. If you delete the cookies in this browser, the opt-out cookie will also be deleted, so you will have to click the link again.

If you’ve agreed that Google may link your web and app browsing history to your Google Account and use information from your Google Account to personalise ads, Google will use your information in conjunction with Google Analytics data to create target audience lists for remarketing purposes across multiple devices. Google Analytics will first collect your Google-authenticated ID on our website, which is linked to your Google account (i.e. personal data). Google Analytics will then temporarily associate your ID with your Google Analytics data to optimise our target audiences.

If you do not agree, you can turn it off via the corresponding settings in the “My Account” section of your Google Account.

Google Doubleclick

Doubleclick by Google is a service by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). Doubleclick by Google uses cookies to show you advertisements that are relevant to you. A pseudonymous identification number (ID) is assigned to your browser in order to check which ads were displayed in your browser and which ads were accessed. The cookies contain no personal information. The use of DoubleClick cookies only allows Google and its affiliates to display ads based on previous visits to our or other websites. The information generated by the cookies is transferred by Google to a server in the United States for evaluation and is stored there.

Google will transfer data to third parties only on the basis of statutory requirements or as part of contract data processing. Under no circumstances will Google combine your data with other data collected by Google.

For more information about the use of cookies on our site, please see the section "Cookies".

In addition, you can prevent Google from collecting and processing the data generated by the cookies, as well as the data related to your use of the webpages, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link under the item DoubleClick deactivation extension. Alternatively, you can disable Doubleclick cookies with this opt-out.

Google Web Fonts

Google Web Fonts are used to improve the visual presentation of various items of information on our website. (https://fonts.google.com/). The web fonts are transferred to the browser’s cache when the site is accessed so that they can be used for the display. If the browser does not support Google Web Fonts or does not allow access, the text will be displayed in the default font. When the site is accessed, no cookies are stored for the website visitor. Data transmitted in connection with the site access is sent to resource-specific domains such as fonts.googleapis.com or fonts.gstatic.com. It will not be associated with data that may be collected or used in connection with the parallel use of authenticated Google services such as Gmail. You can set your browser so that the fonts are not loaded by the Google servers (e.g. by installing add-ons like NoScript or Ghostery for Firefox). If your browser does not support Google Fonts or if you block access to the Google servers, the text will be displayed in the default font of the system.

Vimeo

Vimeo-Plugins

We use the provider Vimeo for the integration of videos, among others things. Vimeo is operated by Vimeo, LLC headquartered at 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011.

On some of our webpages, we use plugins of the provider Vimeo. If you access the webpages of our website with such a plugin – for example, our media library – a connection to the Vimeo servers will be established, and the plugin will be displayed. By doing so, the Vimeo server will be informed which of our webpages you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of Vimeo, Vimeo will assign this information to your personal user account. When using the plugin, e.g., clicking the start button of a video, this information is also assigned to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your Vimeo user account before using our website and deleting the corresponding cookies from Vimeo.

Further information on data processing and privacy at Vimeo can be found at https://vimeo.com/privacy.

For more information on the use of cookies on our website, please refer to the “Cookies” section.

YouTube

YouTube in Privacy-Enhanced Mode

We use the YouTube embedding function to display and play videos from the provider YouTube (hereinafter “YouTube”), which belongs to Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter “Google”).

The privacy-enhanced mode is used here, in which, according to the provider, the storage of user information is only triggered when the video(s) is/are played. If the playback of embedded YouTube videos is started, the provider uses YouTube cookies or comparable recognition technologies to collect information about user behaviour. According to information from YouTube, these are used for purposes including the collection of video statistics, the improvement of user-friendliness and the prevention of abusive behaviour. The YouTube server is informed about which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account when you click on a video. If you do not want your data to be assigned to your YouTube profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as user profiles which it then evaluates. Such an evaluation is carried out according to Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR on the basis of Google's legitimate interests in the display of personalised advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles. You must contact YouTube to exercise this right.

You can object to YouTube’s analysis of user behaviour and targeted advertising by clicking on the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

Facebook fanpage

We operate a Facebook page (“fanpage”) on Facebook, a service provided by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Facebook collects and uses data to provide analysis services (“Page Insights”) to page operators in order to offer them insights into how people interact with their pages and the content associated with them. This data includes information about the types of content users view or interact with, or the actions they take, as well as information about the devices users use, such as IP addresses, the operating system, browser type, language settings and cookie data.

We are jointly responsible with Facebook Ireland Ltd. for the collection and processing of data from visitors to our fanpage. The legal basis is our legitimate interest in this information for advertising purposes, Art. 6 (1)(1)(f) GDPR. That is why we have entered into a shared responsibility agreement with Facebook in relation to the processing of your data in accordance with Art. 26 GDPR. The agreement with Facebook also stipulates in particular which security measures Facebook must observe and that Facebook must comply with the rights of data subjects.

You can demand that we delete your data if we process it unlawfully or if the processing disproportionately interferes with your justifiable protection interests. Please note that there may be reasons that prevent an immediate erasure, e.g., in the case of legally stipulated retention obligations.

Irrespective of the exercise of your right to deletion, we will delete your data immediately and completely, insofar as there is no contractual or statutory obligation to retain data in this respect.

Processing

Right to restrict processing:

You can ask us to restrict the processing of your data if

Objection

Right to object:

If we process your data for legitimate reasons, you may object to such processing at any time.

Appeal

Right to appeal:

If you are of the opinion that we have violated German or European data protection law when processing your data, please contact us so that we can clarify any questions you may have.
