Thank you for your interest in our company. The protection of your personal data is of paramount concern for us. We therefore want to inform you comprehensively about the information we collect on our websites, the purpose we use it for, who we might make it available to and what rights you have (Art. 12 and 13 of the General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR).
Our personal privacy measures are guided by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR, VO EU 2016/679), effective 2018-05-25, and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). With the simple citation of a regulation enclosed in parentheses, we want to express which standard is used to justify the data processing, and if personal data are processed during this process.

Generally, it is not required that you provide personally identifiable information to visit our website. Technically, however, the IP address transmitted from your system is necessary to transfer the data from our website to you. Beyond the freely accessible area of our website – to process your registration, for example – we need your personal data, as appropriate, in order to be able to personally respond to you.
We need a legal basis to process your data. Art. 6 GDPR presents a non-exclusive list of legal bases. Per Art. 6 GDPR, processing is permitted when:
When you visit our website, we receive your complete IP address from your EDP. Only with this IP address are we able to transmit the data of our website to you so that the website displays for you (Art. 6 (1)(b) and (f) GDPR). Beyond the processing for transmission of the called up data, the full IP address is stored for only two days in order to be in a position to initiate defensive measures against attacks on our IT, such as a block of IP addresses as well as possible criminal prosecution (Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR).
We store the date and time of the page view and the page from which you called up our page. We do not save other personal data, unless you log in.
If the programming of our website prompts your browser to load data from servers operated by third parties, we are not, as such, involved in these data transmissions. Our third-party providers have requested we inform you of the following:
We use this information to analyze visits to the website in order to compile reports about the website activities for us so that we better understand how our site is used and where we can improve it (Art. 6 (1)(b) and (f) GDPR). Pseudonymous usage profiles can thereby be created from the processed data. Google will also transfer this information in some cases, when legally mandated or to the extent that third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google will not associate your IP address with other Google data under any circumstances.
You can find further information on data usage for advertising purposes through Google, setting options and ways to object on the Google websites: https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners/ (“How Google uses data when you use our partners' sites or apps”), http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads (“Data usage for advertising purposes”), http://www.google.de/settings/ads (“Control the information Google uses to show you ads”) and http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/ (“Make the ads you see more useful to you”).
You have a right to object and you can prevent the installation and storage of the cookie for Google Analytics through a corresponding setting in your browser. Details to blocking cookies can be found under “Help” on your browser. In addition, you can prevent collection, for Google, of the data that is generated by the cookie and related to your use of the online offering as well as the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the Link browser plug-in of Google available at the following link http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent the collection of your data when visiting this website in the future. With this browser plug-in, the collection and storage of data for Google Analytics can also be objected to at any time with future effect.
We also use Google Optimize. Google Optimize is a Google service (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; “Google“). We use the Google Optimize service to enhance the attractiveness, content and functionality of our website by statistically evaluating a percentage of our users and their changes in use habits as a response to new functions and contents we introduce. Google Optimize is a sub-service of Google Analytics (see Section “Google Analytics”). In addition, you can prevent collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website − your IP address in particular – as well as the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the Google browser plug-in available at this Link : www.tools.google.com
As an AdWords customer, we also use “Google Conversion Tracking,” an analysis service offered by Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; ”Google“). Google AdWords uses it to set a cookie (“conversion cookie“) on your computer if you have reached our website through a Google ad. These cookies lose their validity after thirty days and are not used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages of ours and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognize that someone has clicked on the ad and was thus redirected to our page. Each AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies therefore cannot be used to identify you or your path on the Internet on successive visits at different websites. The information obtained using the conversion cookie serves to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have decided to use conversion tracking. We consequently receive usage statistics about those users who reach our website through a Google ad and can thereby track how successful each of our promotional ads is and how suitable for you they have been for your search topic (Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR).
