1. Scope of processing of personal data
We process personal data of our users in principle only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users is regularly carried out only with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases where prior obtaining of consent is not possible for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.
Type of data processed:
2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
If we obtain consent from the data subject for the processing operations of personal data, Article 6 (1) lit a EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) serves as the legal basis. When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures. Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis. In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make processing of personal data necessary, Art. 6 (1) lit. d DSGVO serves as the legal basis. If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the former interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.
3. Data erasure and storage period
The personal data of the data subject will be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Storage may take place beyond this if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject. Blocking or deletion of data will also take place if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.
Whenever our website is called up, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer. The provider of the site collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
1. Legal basis for data processing
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para 1 lit. f DSGVO.
Purpose of data processing
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the user’s IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session. The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimize the website and to ensure or the security of our information technology systems. In these purposes also lies our legitimate interest in data processing according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO.
2. Duration of storage
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose of their collection. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session is ended.
3. Possibility of objection and removal
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

We maintain online presences within social platforms in order to communicate with customers, interested parties and users active there and to be able to inform them about our services there. When calling up the respective networks and platforms, the terms and conditions and data processing policies of their respective operators apply.
We use plugins of the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA on our pages based on our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO). You can recognize the Facebook plugins by the Facebook logo or the “Like button” (“Like”) on our site. You can find an overview of the Facebook plugins here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and thereby offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).
When a user calls up a function of this online offering that contains such a plugin, his or her device establishes a direct connection with Facebook’s servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to the user’s device and integrated by it into the online offer. In the process, usage profiles of the users can be created from the processed data. We therefore have no influence on the scope of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore inform the users according to our level of knowledge.
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the online offer. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, e.g. press the Like button or post a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your device directly to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will learn and store his or her IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is stored in Germany.
If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him via this online offer and link it to his membership data stored with Facebook, he must log out of Facebook and delete his cookies before using our online offer. Further settings and objections to the use of data for advertising purposes, are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.faceboo.com/settings?tab=ads or via the US site http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU site http://www.youronlinechoices.com/ . The settings are platform-independent, i.e. they are applied to all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.
Functions of the Instagram service are integrated on this website. These functions are offered by Instagram Inc, 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA integrated. If you are logged into your Instagram account, you can link the content of our pages to your Instagram profile by clicking on the Instagram button. This allows Instagram to associate the visit to our pages with your user account. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the pages, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Instagram.
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc (“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. The storage of Google Analytics cookies is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both its advertising offer and its advertising.
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This means that your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the USA. 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 is not merged with other data from Google.
We use the component “”Google Maps”” on our site. “”Google Maps”” is a service of the company Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter “Google”.
For each individual call of this component, a cookie is set by Google to process user settings and data when displaying the page on which the component “Google Maps” is integrated. This cookie is usually not deleted by closing the browser, but expires after a certain time, unless it is manually deleted by you before.
If you do not agree with this processing of your data, it is possible to disable the service of “Google Maps” and in this way to prevent the transfer of data to Google. To do this, you must deactivate the Java Script function in your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you will not be able to use “Google Maps” or will only be able to use it to a limited extent.
as well as the additional terms and conditions for “Google Maps”

You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set that will prevent the collection of your data during future visits to this website: Disable Google Analytics
Commissioned data processing
We have concluded a contract with Google for commissioned data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
On this website, we use the reCAPTCHA function of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). This function is primarily used to distinguish whether an entry is made by a natural person or is misused by machine and automated processing. The service includes the sending of the IP address and possibly other data required by Google for the service of reCAPTCHA to Google and is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in determining the individual willfulness of actions on the Internet and the prevention of abuse and spam.
Google LLC, based in the USA, is certified for the US-European data protection agreement “Privacy Shield”, which ensures compliance with the level of data protection applicable in the EU.
This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to the website operator cannot be read by third parties.
