2. General information and mandatory information

Data protection

The oper­a­tors of this web­site take the pro­tec­tion of your per­son­al data very seri­ous­ly. We treat your per­son­al data as con­fi­den­tial and in accor­dance with the statu­to­ry data pro­tec­tion reg­u­la­tions and this pri­va­cy policy.

If you use this web­site, var­i­ous pieces of per­son­al data will be col­lect­ed. Personal infor­ma­tion is any data with which you could be per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fied. This pri­va­cy pol­i­cy explains what infor­ma­tion we col­lect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what pur­pose this happens.

Please note that data trans­mit­ted via the inter­net (e.g. via email com­mu­ni­ca­tion) may be sub­ject to secu­ri­ty breach­es. Complete pro­tec­tion of your data from third-par­ty access is not possible.

Notice concerning the party responsible for this website

The respon­si­ble par­ty is the nat­ur­al or legal per­son who alone or joint­ly with oth­ers decides on the pur­pos­es and means of pro­cess­ing per­son­al data (names, email address­es, etc.).

Revocation of your consent to the processing of your data

Many data pro­cess­ing oper­a­tions are only pos­si­ble with your express con­sent. You may revoke your con­sent at any time with future effect. An infor­mal email mak­ing this request is suf­fi­cient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legal­ly processed.

Right to data portability

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryp­tion for secu­ri­ty rea­sons and for the pro­tec­tion of the trans­mis­sion of con­fi­den­tial con­tent, such as the inquiries you send to us as the site oper­a­tor. You can rec­og­nize an encrypt­ed con­nec­tion in your browser’s address line when it changes from “http://” to “https://” and the lock icon is dis­played in your browser’s address bar.

The web­site oper­a­tor reserves the right to take spe­cif­ic legal action if unso­licit­ed adver­tis­ing mate­r­i­al, such as email spam, is received.

3. Data collection on our website

Cookies

Some of our web pages use cook­ies. Cookies do not harm your com­put­er and do not con­tain any virus­es. Cookies help make our web­site more user-friend­ly, effi­cient, and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your com­put­er and saved by your browser.

Most of the cook­ies we use are so-called “ses­sion cook­ies.” They are auto­mat­i­cal­ly delet­ed after your vis­it. Other cook­ies remain in your device’s mem­o­ry until you delete them. These cook­ies make it pos­si­ble to rec­og­nize your brows­er when you next vis­it the site.

You can con­fig­ure your brows­er to inform you about the use of cook­ies so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject a cook­ie. Alternatively, your brows­er can be con­fig­ured to auto­mat­i­cal­ly accept cook­ies under cer­tain con­di­tions or to always reject them, or to auto­mat­i­cal­ly delete cook­ies when clos­ing your brows­er. Disabling cook­ies may lim­it the func­tion­al­i­ty of this website.

Cookies which are nec­es­sary to allow elec­tron­ic com­mu­ni­ca­tions or to pro­vide cer­tain func­tions you wish to use (such as the shop­ping cart) are stored pur­suant to Art. 6 para­graph 1, let­ter f of DSGVO. The web­site oper­a­tor has a legit­i­mate inter­est in the stor­age of cook­ies to ensure an opti­mized ser­vice pro­vid­ed free of tech­ni­cal errors. If oth­er cook­ies (such as those used to ana­lyze your surf­ing behav­ior) are also stored, they will be treat­ed sep­a­rate­ly in this pri­va­cy policy.

Server log files

The web­site provider auto­mat­i­cal­ly col­lects and stores infor­ma­tion that your brows­er auto­mat­i­cal­ly trans­mits to us in “serv­er log files”. These are:

  • Browser type and brows­er version
  • Operating sys­tem used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the access­ing computer
  • Time of the serv­er request
  • IP address
  • These data will not be com­bined with data from oth­er sources.

The basis for data pro­cess­ing is Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO, which allows the pro­cess­ing of data to ful­fill a con­tract or for mea­sures pre­lim­i­nary to a contract.

4. Social media

Twitter plugin

Functions of the Twitter ser­vice have been inte­grat­ed into our web­site and app. These fea­tures are offered by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. When you use Twitter and the “Retweet” func­tion, the web­sites you vis­it are con­nect­ed to your Twitter account and made known to oth­er users. In doing so, data will also be trans­ferred to Twitter. We would like to point out that, as the provider of these pages, we have no knowl­edge of the con­tent of the data trans­mit­ted or how it will be used by Twitter. For more infor­ma­tion on Twitter’s pri­va­cy pol­i­cy, please go to https://twitter.com/privacy.

Google Analytics

This web­site uses Google Analytics, a web ana­lyt­ics ser­vice. It is oper­at­ed by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses so-called “cook­ies”. These are text files that are stored on your com­put­er and that allow an analy­sis of the use of the web­site by you. 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.

Google Analytics cook­ies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The web­site oper­a­tor has a legit­i­mate inter­est in ana­lyz­ing user behav­ior to opti­mize both its web­site and its advertising.

IP anonymiza­tion

We have acti­vat­ed the IP anonymiza­tion fea­ture on this web­site. Your IP address will be short­ened by Google with­in the European Union or oth­er par­ties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area pri­or to trans­mis­sion to the United States. Only in excep­tion­al cas­es is the full IP address sent to a Google serv­er in the US and short­ened there. Google will use this infor­ma­tion on behalf of the oper­a­tor of this web­site to eval­u­ate your use of the web­site, to com­pile reports on web­site activ­i­ty, and to pro­vide oth­er ser­vices regard­ing web­site activ­i­ty and Internet usage for the web­site oper­a­tor. The IP address trans­mit­ted by your brows­er as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any oth­er data held by Google.

Browser plu­g­in

You can pre­vent these cook­ies being stored by select­ing the appro­pri­ate set­tings in your brows­er. However, we wish to point out that doing so may mean you will not be able to enjoy the full func­tion­al­i­ty of this web­site. You can also pre­vent the data gen­er­at­ed by cook­ies about your use of the web­site (incl. your IP address) from being passed to Google, and the pro­cess­ing of these data by Google, by down­load­ing and installing the brows­er plu­g­in avail­able at the fol­low­ing link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Objecting to the col­lec­tion of data

You can pre­vent the col­lec­tion of your data by Google Analytics by click­ing on the fol­low­ing link. An opt-out cook­ie will be set to pre­vent your data from being col­lect­ed on future vis­its to this site: Disable Google Analytics.

Outsourced data processing

We have entered into an agree­ment with Google for the out­sourc­ing of our data pro­cess­ing and ful­ly imple­ment the strict require­ments of the German data pro­tec­tion author­i­ties when using Google Analytics.

Demographic data col­lec­tion by Google Analytics

This web­site uses Google Analytics’ demo­graph­ic fea­tures. This allows reports to be gen­er­at­ed con­tain­ing state­ments about the age, gen­der, and inter­ests of site vis­i­tors. This data comes from inter­est-based adver­tis­ing from Google and third-par­ty vis­i­tor data. This col­lect­ed data can­not be attrib­uted to any spe­cif­ic indi­vid­ual per­son. You can dis­able this fea­ture at any time by adjust­ing the ads set­tings in your Google account or you can for­bid the col­lec­tion of your data by Google Analytics as described in the sec­tion “Refusal of data collection”.

Google Web Fonts

For uni­form rep­re­sen­ta­tion of fonts, this page uses web fonts pro­vid­ed by Google. When you open a page, your brows­er loads the required web fonts into your brows­er cache to dis­play texts and fonts correctly.

When you call up a page of our web­site that con­tains a social plu­g­in, your brows­er makes a direct con­nec­tion with Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that our web page was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the inter­est of a uni­form and attrac­tive pre­sen­ta­tion of our web­site. This con­sti­tutes a jus­ti­fied inter­est pur­suant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.

If your brows­er does not sup­port web fonts, a stan­dard font is used by your computer.

Further infor­ma­tion about han­dling user data, can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s pri­va­cy pol­i­cy at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.
