PROVISION OF THE WEBSITE / LOG FILES

Each time you visit our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer. This is standard traffic data such as the time of access, the IP address, the name and version of the web browser, as well as certain cookies and other Internet data. The data is also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user. The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user's computer. For this, the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session. The data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data serves us to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context. In these purposes also lies our legitimate interest in the processing of personal data, in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in conjunction with Art. 28 GDPR (order processing agreement).

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after fourteen days at the latest. Further storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible. The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user. This website and its log files are hosted on our behalf exclusively on servers in certified data centres within Europe.

COOKIES

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored in the Internet browser or by the Internet browser on the user's computer system. Cookies neither transmit viruses nor can they run programs. We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some elements of our website require that the calling browser can be identified even after a page change. In these cookies’ information on language settings or login information can be stored. There are two different types of cookies: temporary (transient) cookies and persistent cookies. Transient cookies include session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the joint session. This enables our website to recognise your computer when you return to our website. Session cookies are temporary and are deleted when you log out or close your browser. Persistent cookies are designed to store data and are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may vary depending on the cookie. You have the option to delete these cookies at any time in the security settings of your browser.

In these purposes also lies our legitimate interest in the processing of personal data, in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. As the cookies are stored on your computer, you as a user also have full control over the use of cookies. You have the option of specifying via the security settings of your browser whether cookies are stored at all. For example, you can choose not to accept cookies from the outset or only accept them on request, or you can specify that cookies are deleted each time you close your browser. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may no longer be possible to use all the functions of the website to their full extent.

DURATION OF STORAGE / ELIMINATION

We delete or block your personal data as soon as the purpose of storage has been achieved or no longer applies. Any further storage will only take place if we are required to do so by national or European regulations. In this case, the data will be blocked or deleted when the storage period prescribed by the respective regulations has expired, unless we need your data to fulfil a contract concluded between us or if this is necessary to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If you use a contact form offered on our website or contact us by e-mail, telephone or social media and provide us with personal data, this data may be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your enquiry.

Your voluntarily provided personal data will be passed on to these service providers to carry out the mailing of the newsletters. The service providers may use your data in pseudonymised form, i.e. without assigning it to a user, to optimise or improve their own services, e.g. to technically optimise the mailing and presentation of the newsletters or for statistical purposes. However, the service providers are not authorised to write to you themselves or to pass on your data to third parties. The service providers act in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in conjunction with Art. 28 para. 3 p. 1 GDPR (order processing agreement).

SOCIAL MEDIA PLUGINS

Our website uses social media plugins from the providers listed below. You can identify which plug-in belongs to which provider by the respective logo with which the plug-in is marked. When you call up one of our pages on which a plug-in is implemented, a connection is automatically established between your browser and the provider's servers with the respective provider of the plug-in. At this point, data will be transmitted to the provider. In addition, data is transfered to the provider as a result of further interactions with the respective social plug-in (e.g. clicking the "Like me" button on Facebook, re-tweet button on Twitter). If you have an account with the provider, this data can be linked to it. To prevent such a linking of your data, you can log out of the provider's service before visiting our site.

The data collected can be saved and analysed by the provider in order to create your user profiles for the purposes of advertising and market research. You have a right of revocation against the creation of user profiles. To exercise this right, you must contact the provider of the plugin.

For what purpose and to what extent data is collected by the provider, you can refer to the respective data protection declarations of the providers, which are listed below.

We ourselves do not collect any personal data using the social media plugins or their use. We have no influence on which data an activated plugin collects and how this data is used by the provider.

FACEBOOK

Facebook is a service of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304 - USA.

The plugins are recognisable by one of the Facebook logos (white "f" on a blue tile or a "thumbs up" sign) or are marked with the addition "Facebook Social Plugin". The list and the appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here:https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=de_DE .

When you visit our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted from Facebook directly to your browser, which then integrates it into the website. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plug-in and can therefore only inform you what we do with it according to our level of knowledge: When you visit our website, Facebook obtains and saves your IP address, even if you are not a member of the social media provider Facebook. However, according to its own information, Facebook only stores an anonymised IP address in Germany. Facebook also receives information about which page of our website you have accessed. If you are a member of Facebook and logged into your account, Facebook can assign your visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the Like button or posting a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If you are not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out and save your IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymised IP address is saved in Germany. The purpose and amount of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as the related rights and settings options to protect the privacy of users, can be found in Facebook's privacy policy:http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

If you are a member of Facebook and do not want Facebook to collect data about you via this offer and link it to its membership data stored on Facebook, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. You also have the option of blocking Facebook social plugins with add-ons for your browser, for example with the "Facebook Blocker". Further settings and objections to the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads.
