The collected data will be stored by us as long as this is necessary for the execution of the contracts entered into with us or you have not exercised your right to delete or your right to transfer data to another company.
For example, we use so-called session cookies to recognize that you have already visited individual sub-pages of our website. Thus, if you have registered, your password is stored for the duration of your visit to our website and the change of subpages, so that you do not have to re-enter it each time. These session cookies are automatically deleted after you leave our website.
We use temporary cookies to optimize the user experience, which are stored on your terminal device for a certain specified period of time. If you visit our site again to use our services, it is automatically recognized that you have already been with us and which entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.
Java script is used in the provision of our Internet offer. If you do not wish to use this utility or active content for security reasons, you should deactivate the corresponding setting in your browser.
6. online marketing/ analysis tools
The tracking measures we use are carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO, § 15 para. 3 TMG. With the tracking measures used, we want to ensure a needs-based design and the ongoing optimization of our website. On the other hand, we use the tracking measures to statistically record the use of our website and for the purpose of evaluating and optimizing our Internet presence. These interests are to be regarded as legitimate within the meaning of the aforementioned provision.
For the purpose of demand-oriented design and ongoing optimization of our websites, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter "Google"). In this context, pseudonymized usage profiles are created and cookies (see also under Section 5) are set. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website, such as browser type/version, operating system used, referrer URL (the previously visited page), host name of the accessing computer (IP address) and the time of the server request are transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website and internet usage for the purposes of market research and demand-oriented design of these websites. Our legitimate interest in data processing also lies in these purposes. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is § 15 para. 3 TMG in conjunction with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on our behalf. In no case will your IP address be merged with other data from Google. The IP addresses are anonymized so that an assignment is not possible (so-called IP masking).
The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 14 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month.
You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link: Click here to disable Google Analytics. An opt-out cookie will be set that prevents future collection of your data when visiting this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.
Google AdWords / Conversion Tracking:
We also use the online advertising program "Google AdWords" within the framework of Google AdWords the conversion tracking. Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service provided by Google. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie for conversion tracking is stored on your terminal device. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days, do not contain any personal data and are therefore not used for personal identification. If you visit certain web pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that you clicked on the ad and were redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Thus, there is no way that cookies can be tracked across websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted in to conversion tracking. This tells customers the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified. Our legitimate interest in data processing also lies in these purposes. The legal basis for the use of Google AdWords/conversion tracking is Section 15 (3) TMG in conjunction with Article 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.
Our website uses the "G+1" button of the social network Google+ provided by Google. You can recognize the Google+ plugin by the sign "Google+" or the addition "G+1". When you click on the plugin, a connection to the Google Plus servers is created. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Google directly to your browser and integrated by it into the website. Through this, the information that you have visited our website is forwarded to Google+.
We would like to point out that we, as the provider of our website, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Google+. According to Google, no personal data is collected without a click on the plugin. While you are logged into the Google+ account, data, including the IP address, is collected and processed. If you wish to prevent such data transfer, you must log out of your Google+ account before visiting our website.
For the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google+, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to the privacy notices of Google and Google+: developers.google.com/+/web/buttons-policy.
Google Fonts / Web Fonts:
Our website uses social plugins ("Plugins") of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc, 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA ("Facebook"). When you open our website with the plugin, it establishes a direct connection with Facebook's servers via your browser. This transmits to Facebook the information that you have accessed the page.
If you are logged in with your Facebook account, the visit to our website can be directly assigned to your profile by clicking on the plugin. Even if you do not have a profile, it cannot be ruled out that your IP address will be stored by Facebook.
If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to collect data about you via our online offer and link it to your membership data stored on Facebook, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website and delete the corresponding Facebook cookies. Likewise, it is possible to block Facebook social plugins with add-ons for the browser, for example with the "Facebook Blocker".
Plugins of the social network Instagram (Instagram Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA) are integrated on our website. You can recognize the Instagram plugin by the "Instagram button" on our website. If you click the Instagram button while you are logged into your Instagram account, you can link the content of our web pages on your Instagram profile. This allows Instagram to associate the visit to our pages with your user account.
To prevent YouTube from collecting data when you visit our website, log out of YouTube before visiting. To prevent YouTube from generally accessing your data via websites, you can exclude YouTube plugins by using an add-on for your browser (e.g. www.youtube.com/user/disconnecters).
We strive to take all necessary technical and organizational security measures to store your personal data in such a way that they are not accessible to third parties or the public. If you wish to contact us by e-mail, we would like to point out that the confidentiality of the information transmitted cannot be fully guaranteed when using this method of communication. We therefore recommend that you send us confidential information exclusively by post.
