1. Automated data collection and processing

As with all websites, our server automatically and temporarily collects and stores information in the server log files transmitted by the browser, unless this is disabled by you (legal basis is article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR). This includes, for example, the IP address of the requesting computer, the http response code, the website from which you are viewing our content, the time of the server request as well as the browser type, browser version and operating system used by the requesting computer.

A person-related evaluation of the server log files is not carried out. This data can never be associated with specific persons by the provider. This data is not merged with data from other sources.

2. Collection and processing of data provided voluntarily

If you provide us with personal data by e-mail or via our website (e.g. name, e-mail address, telephone number, address), this is generally on a voluntary basis. This information will be used to process your requests and will only be processed for the purpose for which you provided it. In addition, for example for the purpose of sending you promotional material, we will only collect, process or use your data within the legal framework of provisions or with your express consent (article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR). To the extent that your consent is declared electronically within the context of our website, we observe the statutory obligations to provide information and record your consent by means of suitable technical systems.
We assure you that we will not pass on your personal data to third parties unless we are legally obliged to do so or you have given your express prior consent. To the extent that we make use of the services of third parties for the execution and handling of processing procedures, the provisions of the GDPR and the Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, BDSG) are complied with.

3. Retention period

Personal data provided to us via our website will only be stored until such time as the purpose for which they were entrusted to us has been fulfilled. Where commercial and tax retention periods have to be observed, the storage period for certain data can be up to 10 years.

4. Cookies

The website uses cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in your browser's cache. The cookies are used in particular to identify the internet browser. Cookies are used for session control and statistical evaluation. These cookies do not contain any personal data. You can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on the hard disk or cookies that have already been stored are deleted. Please follow the instructions of your browser's help function regarding the blocking and deletion of cookies. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

5. Google Ads

We use "Google Ads" on our website, a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as "Google"). Google Ads is used by us for marketing and optimisation purposes, in particular to display ads that are relevant and interesting to you.

If you have given us your consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR, we can use Google Ads to draw attention to our attractive offers by using advertising material on external websites. This enables us to determine how successful individual advertising measures are.

These advertising media is delivered by Google via so-called "AdServers". We use AdServer cookies for this purpose, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as the display of the ads or clicks by users, can be measured.

If you reach our website via a Google ad, Google Ads will store a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually expire after 30 days. They are not intended to identify you personally. The following information is usually stored as analysis values for this cookie: Unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions), opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be contacted). These cookies enable Google to recognize your web browser. If a user visits certain pages of an ad client's website and the cookie stored on their computer has not expired, Google and the client will be able to tell that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page. A different cookie is associated with each ad client. As a result, cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of ad clients. We ourselves do not collect and process any personal data in the advertising measures mentioned above. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. By means of these evaluations we can recognize which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising material, in particular we cannot identify the users on the basis of this information.

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of Google Ads. To the best of our knowledge, Google receives the information that you have called up the relevant part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you have a user account with Google and are registered, Google can assign the visit to your user account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is a possibility that Google will find out and save your IP address.

Since a transfer of personal data to the U.S. takes place, further appropriate safeguards are required to ensure the level of data protection under the GDPR. To guarantee this, we have concluded standard contractual clauses with the provider in accordance with Art. 46 Para. 2 lit. c GDPR. These oblige the recipient of the data in the U.S. to process the data according to the level of protection in Europe. In cases in which this cannot be guaranteed even by this contractual extension, we endeavour to obtain additional regulations and commitments from the recipient in the U.S.

Further information on data use by Google, on setting and objection options as well as on data protection can be found on the following Google websites:

You can prevent the installation of cookies by deleting existing cookies and deactivating the storage of cookies in the settings of your web browser. Please note that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of our website to their full extent. You can also prevent the storage of cookies by setting your web browser to block cookies from the domain "www.googleadservices.com" (https://www.google.de/settings/ads). We would like to point out that this setting will be deleted if you delete your cookies. In addition, you can deactivate interest-related advertisements by clicking on the link http://optout.aboutads.info. Please note that this setting will also be deleted if you delete your cookies.

6. Google Ads Remarketing

Our website uses Google Ads Remarketing. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Provided you have given us your consent, this tool enables the advertising target groups created with Google Ads Remarketing to be linked with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. The legal basis is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR. This means, interest-related, personalised advertising messages that have been adapted to you depending on your previous usage and surfing behaviour on one end device (e.g. mobile phone) can also be displayed on another of your end devices (e.g. tablet or PC).

If you have given your consent, Google will link your web and app browsing history to your Google account for this purpose. In this way, the same personalised advertising messages can be displayed on every end device on which you log in with your Google account.

To support this feature, Google Analytics collects authenticated IDs of users that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create audiences for cross-device ad targeting.

You can permanently opt out of cross-device remarketing/targeting by disabling personalised advertising in your Google Account; follow this link: https://adssettings.google.com/   

As there is a transfer of personal data to the USA, further protection mechanisms are required to ensure the level of data protection of the GDPR. To ensure this, we have agreed standard data protection clauses with the provider in accordance with Art. 46 (2) lit. c GDPR. These oblige the recipient of the data in the USA to process the data in accordance with the level of protection in Europe. In cases where this cannot be ensured even through this contractual extension, we endeavour to obtain additional regulations and commitments from the recipient in the USA.
