Google Universal Analytics

Insofar as you have given your consent according to art. 6 (1) 1 lit. a) GDPR, this website uses Google (Universal) Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google for website analytics. Google Analytics is an offer from Google Ireland Limited, a company incorporated and operated under Irish law with its registered office at Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (www.google.co.uk). Google (Universal) Analytics uses methods, like, e.g. cookies, that enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information collected automatically by cookies about your use of this website is as a rule transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the United States. At the same time, as IP anonymisation is enabled on this website, the IP address will be shortened before being transmitted within the area of member states of the European Union or other parties to the agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address will be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Generally, Google does not associate the anonymised IP address, transmitted from your browser through Google Analytics, with any other data held by Google.

Where information is transmitted to and stored by Google on servers located in the United States, the US company Google LLC is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. You will see the up-to-date certificate here.

You may revoke your consent at any time with future effect by downloading and installing the browser plugin that is available at the following link:

Online Marketing

Google Ads remarketing

We use Google Ads to advertise our website in Google search results and on third-party websites. As far as you have given your consent according to art. 6 (1) 1 lit. a) GDPR for every visit of the website the so-called remarketing cookie of Google is set by Google, which allows the automatic displaying of interest-based advertising using a pseudonymous cookie ID and information about your website visits. After the purpose of use has ceased to exist, and the use of Ads Remarketing has ended from our side, the data collected in this context will be deleted.

Any data processing that goes beyond that scope takes place only if you have allowed Google to associate your web and app browsing history with your Google account and to use information from your Google account to personalise ads that you see across the web. If in such a case, you visit our website while being signed in to Google, Google will use your data together with Google Analytics data to build and define audience lists for cross-device remarketing. For this purpose, Google will temporarily join your data with Google Analytics data to build audiences.

Google reCAPTCHA

To protect against misuse of our web forms and spam, we use the Google reCAPTCHA service. Google reCAPTCHA is an offer from Google Ireland Limited, a company incorporated and operated under Irish law with its registered office at Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (www.google.co.uk). By checking a manual entry, this service prevents automated software (so-called bots) from carrying out abusive activities on the website. In accordance with art. 6 (1) 1 lit. f) GDPR, this serves to protect our legitimate interests in the protection of our website from misuse as well as in a trouble-free presentation of our online presence that are overriding in the balancing of interests.

Google reCAPTCHA uses a code integrated into the website, a so-called JavaScript, as part of the verification methods that enable an analysis of your use of the website, such as cookies. The automatically collected information about your use of this website including your IP address is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In addition, other cookies stored by Google services in your browser are evaluated by Google reCAPTCHA.

No personal data is read out or saved from the input fields of the respective form.

A current certificate can be viewed here. As a result of this agreement between the US and the European Commission, the latter has established an adequate level of data protection for companies certified under the Privacy Shield.

You can prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the JavaScript or the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by preventing the execution of JavaScripten or the setting of cookies in your browser settings.

This serves to protect our legitimate interests in a uniform presentation of the contents on our website in accordance with art. 6 (1) 1 lit. f) GDPR.

Social Media

Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn

Our website uses so-called social network plugins (“plugins”).

If you call a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser will establish a direct link to the servers of Facebook, Google, Twitter or Instagram. Then, the content of the plugin will be transferred by the relevant provider directly to your browser and integrated within the page you are viewing. This allows the providers to obtain information that you viewed the page of our website in your browser, also if you do not have an account with the relevant provider or are currently not signed in. This information (including your IP address) will be sent from your browser directly to the relevant provider’s server (which may be in the USA) and stored there. If you have signed in to your social network account, the providers will be able to directly attribute your visit to our website to your social network account. If you interact with the plugins, e.g. click the ‘Like’ or ‘Share’ button, this information will also be sent directly to the provider’s server and stored there. In addition, the information will be published on the social network page, and your contacts will be able to see it. This serves the protection of our legitimate interests in the optimal marketing of our website according to art. 6 (1) 1 lit. f) GDPR that are overriding in the process of balancing of interests.

To find out more about the purpose and scope of the collection, further processing and use of the data by the providers on their websites, and to learn about the available contact options and your rights in this respect and how you can customise your browser to better protect your privacy, please see the data privacy policies of the providers:

Instagram: https://help.instagram.com/519522125107875

LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy

If you do not want the social networks to attribute the data collected through our website directly to your social network account, you must sign out of the relevant account before visiting our website. You may also use add-ons for your browser, e.g. the “NoScript” script blocker, to stop plugins.

Our online presence on Facebook, Instagram & LinkedIn

Our presence on social networks and platforms serves a better, active communication with our customers and interested parties. We inform you there about our services and current news.

When you visit our profiles on social media, your data may be automatically collected and stored for market research and advertising purposes. So-called usage profiles are created from these data using pseudonyms. These can be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to your interests. For this purpose, cookies are usually used on your terminal. The visitor behaviour and the interests of the users are stored in these cookies. This serves in accordance with art. 6 (1) 1 lit. f) GDPR to protect our legitimate interest in an optimised presentation of our offer and effective communication with customers and interested parties that are overriding in the balancing of interests. If you are asked by the respective social media platform operators for a consent into the data processing, e.g. with the help of a checkbox, the legal basis of data processing is art. 6 (1) 1 lit. a) GDPR.

If the aforementioned social media platforms are headquartered in the USA, the following applies: The European Commission has adopted a decision on appropriateness for the USA. This goes back to the EU-US Privacy Shield. A current certificate for the respective company can be viewed here.
