Use of cookies


(1) In addition to the data mentioned above, cookies are stored on your computer when you use our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard disk assigned to the browser you use and through which certain information flows to the place that sets the cookie. Cookies cannot run programs or transmit viruses to your computer. They are used to make the website more user-friendly and effective overall.

(2) This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and function of which are explained below:

-        Transient cookies (see a.)

-        Persistent cookies (see b.).

a. Transient cookies are automatically erased when you close the browser. This particularly includes session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which different requests of your browser can be assigned to a joint session. This allows your computer to be recognised if you are returning to our website. The session cookies are erased when you log out or close the browser.

b. Persistent cookies are automatically erased after a certain period of time, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can erase the cookies at any time in the security settings of your browser.

c.  You can configure your browser settings the way you wish and e. g.

refuse the acceptance of third-party cookies or all cookies. So-called “third party cookies” are cookies placed on your computer by a third party, and not by the actual website that you are visiting. Please note that by deactivating the cookies, you may not be able to use all of the functions of this website.

Cookies that are required to perform the electronic communication process or to

provide certain functions you would like are stored on the basis of point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the error-free and optimised provision of our services.

 

Other functions and offers of our website

To do so, you generally have to provide other personal data, which we use to provide the service and to which the data protection principles above apply. The legal basis for this processing is point (b) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR.

 (2) In some cases, we use external service providers to process your data. They have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are bound by our instructions and are inspected on a regular basis.

(3) Furthermore, we may pass on your personal data to third parties if campaigns, competitions, contracts or other services are offered by us together with partners. You will receive more information on this when you enter your personal data or below in the description of the offer. The legal basis for this processing is point (a) and (b) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR.

Furthermore, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority.

 

Right to lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you shall have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes the GDPR.

The supervisory authority that receives the complaint shall inform the complainant about the status and the results of the complaint including the option of a judicial remedy pursuant to Art. 78 GDPR.

In addition to the powers above, you generally have the right to revoke your consent for processing and using your data at any time with future effect. In order to exercise this right, you can contact us at any time under the address given above.

We will then completely erase your data unless there is a legal storage or retention obligation. In this case, the data will be blocked, unless there is a legal basis for data processing.

 

Use of Google Analytics


(1) This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files which are stored on your computer to help analyse your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will truncate your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information on behalf of the website operator for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports about website activity and providing the website operator with other services associated with website use and internet use.

(2) The IP address transmitted by your browser within the context of Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data.

(3) You can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings of your browser software; however, please note that if you do so, you may not be able to use all of the functions on this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) and from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

(4) This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. As a result, IP addresses are processed in truncated form, which excludes them from being directly linked to a particular individual. If personal data can identify you personally, they will be excluded and erased immediately.

(5) We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. We can use these statistics to improve our website and to make it more interesting for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data are transmitted to the USA, Google is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield, www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for using Google Analytics is point (f) of Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 GDPR.

(6) Information of the third-party provider: Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001. Terms of use:

www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html, overview of data protection: www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/learn/privacy.html, as well as the privacy policy: www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

(7) This website also uses Google Analytics for the cross-device analysis of visitor flows, which is performed using a user ID. You can deactivate the cross-device analysis of your use in your customer account under “My data”, “Personal data”.

 

Use of social media plugins


(1) We currently use the following social media plugins: [Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Xing, T3N, LinkedIn, Flattr]. Here, we use the so-called two-click solution. This means that when you visit our website, no personal data are initially transmitted to the plug-in providers. You can identify the plug-in provider by the marking on the box above the initial letter or the logo. We give you the opportunity to communicate with the plug-in provider by clicking on the button. Only if you click on the marked field and activate it, the plug-in provider will receive the information that you have accessed the website of our online service. The data specified under section 3 of this privacy policy will also be transmitted. For Facebook and Xing, the IP address is anonymised immediately after collection according to both providers in Germany. By activating the plug-in, personal data will be transmitted by you to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (with US providers in the USA). Since the plug-in provider collects data, particularly via cookies, we recommend that you erase all cookies in the security settings of your browser before clicking on the greyed-out box.

(2) We have no influence on the collected data and data processing operations, nor are we aware of the full extent of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We also have no information about the erasure of collected data by the plug-in provider.

(3) The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as a user profile and uses it for the purposes of marketing, market research and/or tailoring its website according to your needs. This analysis is performed (including for users who are not logged in) particularly to show you needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the formation of this user profile; to exercise this right, please contact the respective plug-in provider. The plug-ins allow you to interact with the social networks and other users so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of plug-ins is point (f) of Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 GDPR.

(4) Data are transferred regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, your data collected by us will be assigned to your account with the plug-in provider. If you click on the activated button and e. g. link the page, the plug-in provider also stores this information in your user account and shares it publicly with your contacts. We recommend regularly logging out after using a social network, particularly before activating the button, as this will prevent you being assigned to your profile with the plug-in provider.

(5) More information about the purpose and scope of data collection and their processing by the plug-in provider can be found in privacy policies of these providers given below. Here, you will also find more information about your rights and setting options to protect your privacy.
