Purposes of data processing by the controller and third parties

We process your personal data only for the purposes stated in this data protection declaration. Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties for purposes other than those stated. We will only pass on your personal data to third parties, if:

the processing is required for the assertion of legitimate interests, and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in not disclosing your data.

Collection of general information when visiting our website

When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected by means of a cookie. This information (server log files) includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider and similar information. This exclusively consists of information which does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.

This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the content you have requested from websites and is mandatory when using the internet. It is processed in particular for the following purposes:

The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest from the aforementioned purposes for data collection. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. The only recipients of the data are the controller and, if applicable, the processor.

Anonymous information of this kind may be statistically evaluated by us in order to optimise our website and the technology on which it is based.

Cookies

Like many other websites, we also use “cookies“. Cookies are small text files that are transferred by a website server to your hard drive. This automatically gives us certain data, such as the IP address, the browser used, operating system and your connection to the internet.

Cookies cannot be used to launch programs or to transfer viruses to a computer. On the basis of the information contained in cookies, we can make your navigation simpler and enable the correct display of our web pages.

Under no circumstances will the data collected by us be disclosed to third parties or a link to your personal data be established without your consent.

Of course, you can generally view our website without cookies. Web browsers are generally set so that they accept cookies. You can deactivate the use of cookies at any time via the settings of your browser. Please use the help features of your internet browser to find out how you can change these settings. Please note, however, that certain functions of our website may not work if you have disabled the use of cookies.

SSL encryption

To protect the security of your data when it is transferred, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (such as SSL) via HTTPS.

Contact form

If you contact us by email or with our contact form with questions of any kind, you provide us with your voluntary consent for the purpose of establishing contact. In this respect, the provision of a valid email address is required. This serves the purpose of the allocation of the enquiry and its subsequent response. The provision of further data is optional. The information that you provide will be saved for the purposes of processing your enquiry and for possible subsequent questions. Once the enquiry you made has been resolved, your personal data will be automatically erased.

Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)

To be able to correctly display our content on an attractive graphical basis in a variety of web browsers, on this website we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google Webfonts will be transferred to your browser’s cache in order to avoid repeated loading. If your browser does not support Google Webfonts or does not allow access, the content will be displayed in a standard font.

Accessing script libraries or font libraries automatically creates a connection with the operator of the respective library. In such cases, it is theoretically possible that the operators of such libraries could collect data – although it is currently unclear as to whether they this will take place and for what purpose.

The data protection guidelines of the library operator Google are available here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Data protection provisions on the application and use of Facebook

The controller who is responsible for the processing has integrated components of the company Facebook into this website. Facebook is a social network.

A social network is a place for social meetings on the internet; an online community which generally allows users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network may serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or enable the internet community to provide personal or business-related information. Facebook allows the users of its social network to create private profiles, to upload photos, and to network through friend requests.

The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. If a data subject lives outside of the United States or Canada, the controller who is responsible for the processing of the personal data is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Through each visit to one of the individual pages of this website which is operated by the controller who is responsible for the processing and into which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-ins) has been integrated, the web browser on the information technology system of the data subject will be automatically prompted to download a display of the corresponding Facebook component of Facebook through the Facebook component. An overview of all the Facebook plugins can be accessed under https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=de_DE. During the course of this technical procedure, Facebook is made aware of the specific sub-page of our website that was visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged into Facebook at the same time, every time the data subject accesses our website and for the entire duration of their stay on our website, Facebook is able to see which specific sub-pages of our website that the data subject visits. This information will be collected by the Facebook component and assigned to the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Facebook buttons that has been integrated in our website such as the “Like” button, or if the data subject submits a comment, Facebook will match this information with the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and store this personal data.

Through the Facebook component, Facebook will always receive notification of any visit made to our website by the data subject if the data subject is simultaneously logged into Facebook when they access our website; this will occur regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the data subject does not want such a transfer of information to Facebook to take place, he or she may prevent this transfer by logging out of their Facebook account before they access our website.

The data protection guidelines published by Facebook, which are available at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. They also provide information on the setting options that Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, different configuration options are available that can prevent data from being transferred to Facebook. These applications can be used by the data subject to prevent data from being transferred to Facebook.

Changes to our data protection provisions

We reserve the right to amend this privacy notice to ensure its consistent compliance with the current legal requirements or in order to implement changes to our services in the privacy notice, with the introduction of new services, for example. The new privacy notice will then apply on your next visit.
