The use of our site is possible without providing personal data. For the use of individual services on our site, different regulations may apply, which in this case will be explained separately below. Your personal data (e.g. name, address, e-mail, telephone number, etc.) will only be processed by us in accordance with the provisions of German data protection law and any other applicable legislation. Data is considered personal if it can be clearly assigned to a specific natural person. The legal basis for data protection can be found in the EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (EU-DSGVO), in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and in the Telemedia Act (TMG). The following regulations inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the collection, use and processing of personal data by the provider.
a) When visiting the website
When you call up our website, information is automatically sent to the server of our website by the browser used on your end device. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is recorded without your intervention and stored until it is automatically deleted:
- IP address of the requesting computer
- Date and time of access
- Name and URL of the retrieved file
- Website from which the access takes place (referrer URL)

The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest follows from the above-mentioned purposes for data collection. Under no circumstances do we use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person.
You can visit our website without providing any personal information. Every time you access our website, usage data is transmitted by your Internet browser and stored in log files (server log files). These stored data include, for example, the name of the page called up, the date and time of the call, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider. This data is used exclusively to ensure the trouble-free operation of our website and to improve our offer. It is not possible to assign this data to a specific person.
b) When registering for our newsletter
If you have expressly consented in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO, we will use your e-mail address to send you our newsletter regularly for advertising purposes. To receive the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide an e-mail address. We will check the e-mail address you have entered to ensure that you are actually the owner of the e-mail address provided or that the owner has authorised the receipt of the newsletter.
The data collected in this way will be used exclusively for receiving our newsletter. It will not be passed on to third parties. A comparison of the data collected in this way with data that may be collected by other components of our site is also not carried out.
It is possible to unsubscribe at any time, for example via a link at the end of each newsletter. Alternatively, you can send your unsubscribe request at any time by e-mail to email@example.com.
We use the following instrument for this: Use of MailChimp
With regard to the use of your personal data to receive our newsletter, you will be asked for your consent at the appropriate point as follows:
“I have taken note of the data protection declaration, in particular I agree that the data processing will be carried out by a service provider in the USA”.
With the newsletter we inform you about our offers at regular intervals. To receive our newsletter, you need a valid e-mail address. With your registration to our newsletter we will save your IP address and the date and time of your registration. This serves as a safeguard for us in the event that a third party misuses your e-mail address and subscribes to our newsletter without your knowledge.

- Analysis tools and tracking tools
The analysis and tracking measures listed below and used by us are carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO. With the tracking measures used, we want to ensure that our website is designed to meet the needs of our customers and is continuously optimized.

These interests are to be regarded as justified in the sense of the aforementioned regulation.
The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be taken from the corresponding tracking tools.
a) Google Analytics
For the purpose of designing and continuously optimizing our pages according to your needs, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (https://www.google.de/intl/en/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter “Google”). In this context, pseudonymized user profiles are created and cookies (see section 4 below) are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as
- Browser type/version
- Operating system used
- Referrer-URL (the previously visited page)
- Host name of the accessing computer (IP address)

is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services associated with the use of the website and the Internet for the purposes of market research and demand-oriented design of these Internet pages. This information may also be transferred to third parties where required by law or where third parties process this data on our behalf. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other data from Google. The IP addresses are made anonymous, so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking).
You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https:// tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en). An opt-out cookie is set to prevent the future collection of your data when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie is valid only in this browser and only for our website and is placed on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you will have to set the opt-out cookie again.
In addition or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prevent tracking by Google Analytics on our pages by clicking on this link. This will install an opt-out cookie on your device. This will prevent Google Analytics from tracking this website and this browser in the future as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.
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=en).
- Social media plug-ins
We use social plugins from the social networks Facebook and Instagram on our website on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO Social Plugins to make our company better known. The underlying advertising purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the meaning of the DSGVO. The responsibility for data protection compliant operation is to be guaranteed by their respective providers. The integration of these plug-ins by us is carried out by means of the so-called two-click method in order to protect visitors to our website in the best possible way.
Our website uses features of the LinkedIn network. The provider is LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Each time you access one of our pages that contains LinkedIn features, a connection to LinkedIn’s servers is established. LinkedIn is notified that you have visited our sites using your IP address. When you click on the LinkedIn “Recommend” button and are logged into your LinkedIn account, LinkedIn is able to associate your visit to our site with you and your account. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of these pages, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by LinkedIn.
The use of the LinkedIn plugin is based on art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the widest possible visibility in the social media.
Our website uses functions of the network XING. The provider is XING AG, Dammtorstraße 29-32, 20354 Hamburg, Germany.
Each time one of our pages containing XING functions is called up, a connection to XING servers is established. To the best of our knowledge, no personal data is stored. In particular, neither IP addresses are stored, nor the usage behavior is evaluated.
The use of the XING plugin is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the widest possible visibility in the social media.
