Nature and purpose of processing:

When you access our web­site, i.e., when you do not regis­ter or other­wi­se sub­mit infor­ma­ti­on, infor­ma­ti­on of a gene­ral natu­re is auto­ma­ti­cal­ly collec­ted. This infor­ma­ti­on (ser­ver log files) inclu­des, for examp­le, the type of web brow­ser, the ope­ra­ting sys­tem used, the domain name of your Inter­net ser­vice pro­vi­der, your IP address and the like.

In par­ti­cu­lar, they are pro­ces­sed for the fol­lowing purposes:

  • Ensu­ring a smooth con­nec­tion set­up of the website,
  • Ensu­ring a smooth use of our website,
  • eva­lua­ting sys­tem secu­ri­ty and sta­bi­li­ty, and
  • for other admi­nis­tra­ti­ve purposes.

We do not use your data to draw con­clu­si­ons about your per­son. Infor­ma­ti­on of this kind is sta­tis­ti­cal­ly eva­lua­ted by us, if necessa­ry, in order to opti­mi­ze our web­site and the tech­no­lo­gy behind it.

Legal basis:

The pro­ces­sing is car­ri­ed out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in impro­ving the sta­bi­li­ty and func­tio­n­a­li­ty of our website.

Recipients:

Reci­pi­ents of the data may be tech­ni­cal ser­vice pro­vi­ders who act as order pro­ces­sors for the ope­ra­ti­on and main­ten­an­ce of our website.

Storage period:

The data is dele­ted as soon as it is no lon­ger requi­red for the pur­po­se for which it was collec­ted. This is gene­ral­ly the case for data used to pro­vi­de the web­site when the respec­ti­ve ses­si­on has ended.

Provision prescribed or required:

The pro­vi­si­on of the afo­re­men­tio­ned per­so­nal data is not requi­red by law or con­tract. Howe­ver, without the IP address, the ser­vice and func­tio­n­a­li­ty of our web­site is not gua­ran­te­ed. In addi­ti­on, indi­vi­du­al ser­vices and ser­vices may not be avail­ab­le or may be limi­ted. For this rea­son, an objec­tion is excluded.

This is used for the assign­ment of the request and the sub­se­quent respon­se to the same. The pro­vi­si­on of fur­ther data is optional.

By pro­vi­ding the con­ta­ct form, we would like to enab­le you to con­ta­ct us in an uncom­pli­ca­ted man­ner. The infor­ma­ti­on you pro­vi­de will be stored for the pur­po­se of pro­ces­sing the request and for pos­si­ble fol­low-up questions.

If you con­ta­ct us to request a quo­te, the data ent­e­red in the con­ta­ct form will be pro­ces­sed for the imple­men­ta­ti­on of pre-con­trac­tu­al mea­su­res (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO).

The pro­vi­si­on of your per­so­nal data is vol­un­ta­ry. Howe­ver, we can only pro­cess your request if you pro­vi­de us with your name, e-mail address and the rea­son for the request.

 

Use of Google Analytics

Nature and purpose of processing:

This web­site uses Goog­le Ana­ly­tics, a web ana­ly­tics ser­vice pro­vi­ded by Goog­le LLC, 1600 Amphi­theat­re Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043 USA (her­ein­af­ter: “Goog­le”). Goog­le Ana­ly­tics uses “coo­kies”, which are text files pla­ced on your com­pu­ter, to help the web­site ana­ly­ze how users use the site. The infor­ma­ti­on gene­ra­ted by the coo­kie about your use of this web­site is usual­ly trans­mit­ted to a Goog­le ser­ver in the USA and stored the­re. Howe­ver, due to the acti­va­ti­on of IP anony­miz­a­ti­on on the­se web pages, your IP address will be trun­ca­ted befo­re­hand by Goog­le wit­hin mem­ber sta­tes of the Euro­pean Uni­on or in other con­trac­ting sta­tes of 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 shor­ten­ed the­re. On behalf of the ope­ra­tor of this web­site, Goog­le will use this infor­ma­ti­on for the pur­po­se of eva­lua­ting your use of the web­site, com­pi­ling reports on web­site acti­vi­ty and pro­vi­ding other ser­vices rela­ting to web­site acti­vi­ty and inter­net usa­ge to the web­site ope­ra­tor. The IP address trans­mit­ted by your brow­ser as part of Goog­le Ana­ly­tics will not be mer­ged with other data from Google.

The pur­po­ses of data pro­ces­sing are to eva­lua­te the use of the web­site and to com­pi­le reports on web­site acti­vi­ties. Based on the use of the web­site and the Inter­net, other rela­ted ser­vices shall then be provided.

Legal basis:

The pro­ces­sing of data is based on the con­sent of the user (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO).

Recipient:

The reci­pi­ent of the data is Goog­le as an order pro­ces­sor. For this pur­po­se, we have con­clu­ded the cor­re­spon­ding order pro­ces­sing agree­ment with Google.

Storage period:

The data is dele­ted as soon as it is no lon­ger requi­red for our record­ing purposes.

Third-country transfer:

Goog­le pro­ces­ses your data in the USA and has sub­mit­ted to the EU_US Pri­va­cy Shield https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

Provision mandatory or required:

The pro­vi­si­on of your per­so­nal data is vol­un­ta­ry, based sole­ly on your con­sent. If you pre­vent access, this may result in func­tio­n­al restric­tions on the website.

Revocation of consent:

You may refu­se the use of coo­kies by selec­ting the appro­pria­te set­tings on your brow­ser, howe­ver plea­se note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full func­tio­n­a­li­ty of this web­site. You can also pre­vent the collec­tion of data gene­ra­ted by the coo­kie and rela­ted to your use of the web­site (inclu­ding your IP address) to Goog­le and the pro­ces­sing of this data by Goog­le by down­loading and instal­ling the brow­ser plugin avail­ab­le at the fol­lowing link: Brow­ser Add On to dis­able Goog­le Analytics.

In addi­ti­on or as an alter­na­ti­ve to the brow­ser add-on, you can pre­vent tracking by Goog­le Ana­ly­tics on our pages by cli­cking this link. This will install an opt-out coo­kie on your device. This will pre­vent the collec­tion by Goog­le Ana­ly­tics for this web­site and for this brow­ser in the future, as long as the coo­kie remains instal­led in your browser.

Profiling:

The Goog­le Ana­ly­tics tracking tool can be used to eva­lua­te the beha­vi­or of visi­tors to the web­site and ana­ly­ze their inte­rests. For this pur­po­se, we crea­te a pseud­ony­mous user profile.

 

Use of script libraries (Google Web Fonts)

Nature and purpose of processing:

In order to dis­play our con­tent cor­rect­ly and gra­phi­cal­ly appe­aling across brow­sers, we use “Goog­le Web Fonts” of Goog­le LLC (1600 Amphi­theat­re Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043, USA; her­ein­af­ter “Goog­le”) on this web­site to dis­play fonts.

Legal basis:

The legal basis for the inte­gra­ti­on of Goog­le Web­fonts and the asso­cia­ted data trans­fer to Goog­le is your con­sent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO).

Recipients:

Cal­ling up script libra­ries or font libra­ries auto­ma­ti­cal­ly trig­gers a con­nec­tion to the ope­ra­tor of the libra­ry. It is theo­re­ti­cal­ly pos­si­ble - alt­hough cur­r­ent­ly also unclear whe­ther and, if so, for what pur­po­ses - that the ope­ra­tor collects Goog­le data in this case.

Storage period:

We do not collect any per­so­nal data through the inte­gra­ti­on of Goog­le Web Fonts.

Fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on on Goog­le Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s pri­va­cy poli­cy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

Revocation of consent:

The Java­Script pro­gramming lan­guage is regu­lar­ly used to dis­play the con­tent. You can the­re­fo­re object to data pro­ces­sing by deac­ti­vat­ing the exe­cu­ti­on of Java­Script in your brow­ser or instal­ling a Java­Script blo­cker. Plea­se note that this may result in func­tio­n­al restric­tions on the website.
