You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority about our processing of your personal data (Art. 77 GDPR).

Use of the website, access data

In principle, you can use our website for purely informational purposes without disclosing your identity. When you access the individual pages of the website in this sense, this only results in access data being transferred to our web hosting service so that the website can be displayed to you. This is the following data:

• browser type/browser version,

• operating system used,

• language and version of the browser software,

• hostname of the accessing device,

• IP address,

• website from which the request comes,

• content of the request (specific page),

• date and time of the server request,

• access status/HTTP status code,

• referrer URL (website visited before),

• volume of data transferred,

• time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

Temporary processing of the IP address by the system is necessary to make it technically possible to deliver the website to your device. This requires processing of your IP address for the duration of the session. The legal basis of such processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR.

The access data is not used to identify individual users and is not combined with other data sources. The access data is deleted when it is no longer required for achieving the purpose of its processing. In the case of recording the data to provide the website, this is the case when you end your visit to the website.

IP addresses are stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data serves us to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. No evaluation of the data for marketing purposes takes place in this context either. In principle, data is deleted after seven days at the latest; further processing is possible in individual cases. In this case, the IP address is deleted or so transformed that an assignment of the retrieving client is no longer possible.

The recording of data for the provision of the website and the processing of data in log files is an absolute necessity for the operation of the website. You may object to the processing. Your right of objection exists if you have reasons arising from your particular situation, unless we can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or, moreover, the processing serves to establish and exercise or defend against legal claims (Art. 21(1) GDPR). You can send us your objection to the contact data provided under ‘Responsible provider’. In the event that your objection is justified, we will examine the situation and either stop or adjust the data processing or point out to you the compelling legitimate reasons on the basis of which we will continue processing.

Cookies

In addition to the aforementioned access data, so-called cookies are stored in the internet browser of the device you use to access the website. These are small text files with a sequence of numbers that are stored locally in the cache of the browser used. Cookies do not become part of the device system and cannot execute programs. They serve to make our website user-friendly. The use of cookies may be technically necessary or may occur for other purposes (e.g. analysis/evaluation of website usage).

a) Technically necessary cookies

Some elements of our website require that the retrieving browser can be identified even after a page change. This involves processing the following data in the cookies:

The user data collected by technically necessary cookies is not processed to create user profiles. We also use session cookies, which store a session ID that can be used to assign various requests from your browser to the shared session. Session cookies are required for using the website. In particular, they enable us to recognise the device used when you return to the website. If you have an account with us, we use this cookie to recognise you on subsequent visits to the website; otherwise you would have to log in again each time you visited. The legal basis of this processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR. We use session cookies to make using our website more attractive and effective. Session cookies are deleted as soon as you log out or close your browser.

Most browsers are preset to automatically accept cookies. You can object to the processing of your data by cookies. Your right of objection exists if you have reasons arising from your particular situation, unless we can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or, moreover, the processing serves to establish and exercise or defend against legal claims (Art. 21(1) GDPR). In the event that your objection is justified, we will examine the situation and either stop or adjust the data processing or point out to you the compelling legitimate reasons on the basis of which we will continue processing.

You can disable or restrict the transfer of cookies by changing the settings in your internet browser. Cookies that have already been saved can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies are disabled for our website, it may no longer be possible to use the full functionality of the website.

b) Technically non-essential cookies

In addition, we also use cookies on the website which enable an analysis of users’ surfing behaviour. For example, this involves processing the following data in the cookies:

These cookies are used to make using the website more efficient and attractive. The legal basis of this processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR. The technically non-essential cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period, which may vary depending on the cookie.

You can object to the processing of your data by cookies. Your right of objection exists if you have reasons arising from your particular situation, unless we can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or, moreover, the processing serves to establish and exercise or defend against legal claims (Art. 21(1) GDPR). If you do not wish to use cookies, you have the option of changing your browser settings in order to generally or selectively block the placement of cookies or remove stored cookies. You can also have the corresponding information displayed before a cookie is placed. If you change the browser settings for the use of cookies or disable cookies, the functionality of this website may be restricted.

Where we integrate cookies from third-party providers into our website, we point this out to you separately below.

c) Flash cookies

HTML5 storage objects are also used, which are stored on the device you use (“Flash cookies”). These process the required data independently of the browser and do not have an automatic expiry date. The legal basis of this processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR. These cookies are used to make using the website more efficient and attractive.

You can object to the processing of your data by cookies. Your right of objection exists if you have reasons arising from your particular situation, unless we can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or, moreover, the processing serves to establish and exercise or defend against legal claims (Art. 21(1) GDPR). The transfer of Flash cookies cannot be prevented by adjusting your browser settings, but by changing your Flash Player settings. If you do not wish for Flash cookies to be used, please install an appropriate add-on in the browser you use, e. g. “Better Privacy” for Mozilla Firefox (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/betterprivacy/).

You can also prevent the use of Flash cookies by opening your browser in ‘private mode’. Furthermore, you can regularly delete cookies and your browser history manually.

d) Cookie banner notice

When you visit the website, an information banner notifies you about the use of cookies for analysis purposes and refers you to this privacy policy. In this context, information is also provided about how the storage of cookies can be prevented by adjusting your browser settings.

Contacting our company

When contacting our company, e.g. by email, we will process the personal data provided by you so that we can respond to your enquiry.

In order for us to process enquiries submitted via the contact form on the website, it is essential that you provide a name or pseudonym and a valid email address. At the moment when you submit the message to us, the following data will also be processed:

The legal basis of the processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR and Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(b) GDPR, if the contact is made with the intention of concluding a contract. If it is necessary to enter your data in order to conclude a contract, it may be impossible to conclude or execute the contract or to process the request if the data is not made available.

Processing the personal data from the form allows us alone to process the contact you make with us. Where you contact us by email, this also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in the processing of the data.

The data will not be transmitted to third parties in this context. The data is only processed in order to process the conversation. As soon as processing is no longer necessary, we delete the data generated in this context or, if statutory retention obligations apply, restrict processing of the data.

You have the possibility to object to the processing of your personal data for contact requests at any time. You can send us your objection to the contact data provided under ‘Responsible provider’. Your right of objection exists if you have reasons arising from your particular situation, unless we can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or, moreover, the processing serves to establish and exercise or defend against legal claims (Art. 21(1) GDPR). In particular, you have a right of objection if processing is not necessary to fulfil a contract with you, which is described by us in the previous description of the functions. In such a case, it may not be possible to continue processing the request. In the event that your objection is justified, we will examine the situation and either stop or adjust the data processing or point out to you the compelling legitimate reasons on the basis of which we will continue processing.

Processing and transmission of personal data for contractual purposes

We process your personal data if and to the extent necessary for the initiation, creation, execution and/or termination of a legal transaction with our company. The legal basis from this results from Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(b) GDPR. If the data processing is necessary for the conclusion of a contract, the conclusion of the contract, the execution and/or the termination of a legal transaction with our company may be impossible if the data is not made available.

Once the purpose has been achieved (e.g. contract processing), the personal data will be blocked for further processing or erased, unless we are entitled to retain the data for a longer period and process it as required in the respective context on the basis of a consent granted by you (e.g. consent to the processing of your email address for sending promotional emails), a contractual agreement, a statutory authorisation (e.g. authorisation to send direct advertising) or on the basis of justified interests (e.g. retention for asserting claims).

Your personal data will be passed on if

Your personal data will not be transmitted to other persons, companies or bodies unless you have effectively consented to such transmission. The legal basis of the processing is then Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(a) GDPR.

Processing and transmission of personal data in the online ordering system

If you wish to submit an order or booking in our online shop, it is necessary for the initiation and conclusion of the contract that you provide personal data such as your name, your address and your email address. The mandatory data required for order and contract processing is marked as such; further information is provided voluntarily. We process your data for order processing; in particular, we will forward payment data to your chosen payment service provider or our main bankThe provision of your data is necessary for the conclusion of the contract. If your data is not provided the conclusion of the contract is impossible. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(b) GDPR. To prevent unauthorised third parties from accessing your personal data, the order process on the website is encrypted using SSL/TLS technology.

You can voluntarily create a customer account in which we store your data for future visits to the website. When you create a customer account, the data you enter is processed. Once you have successfully logged in, you are free to edit or delete all other data, including your customer account.

As soon as storage is no longer necessary, we delete the data generated in this context or, if statutory retention obligations apply, restrict processing of the data. Due to mandatory commercial and tax regulations, we are obliged to keep your address, payment and order data for a period of ten years. After two years after termination of the contract, we will restrict the processing and reduce the processing to compliance with our existing legal obligations.

Registration/password-protected area on the website

If you wish to use the password-protected area of our website, you must register by providing the following information:

  • email address,
  • name.
  • IP address,
  • date/time of registration.
  • shared name/username,
  • email address.
  • IP address,
  • Date/time of post.
  • IP address,
  • date/time of registration for the newsletter,

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required for achieving the purpose of its processing. This is the case for the data collected during the registration process if the registration on the website is cancelled or modified.

The following functions are available to you in the password-protected area:

  • Edit your profile data,
  • view past orders/bookings.

If you use the password-protected area of the website, e.g. to edit your profile data or to view orders and bookings made, we also process the data about your person required for the initiation or fulfilment of the contract, in particular address data and information about the payment method. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(b) GDPR. The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required for achieving the purpose of its processing or as soon as there are no legitimate interests preventing its erasure. Due to mandatory commercial and tax regulations, we are obliged to keep your address, payment and order data for a period of ten years. After two years after termination of the contract, we will restrict the processing and reduce the processing to compliance with our existing legal obligations. The data processing is necessary for the conclusion or initiation of the contract. If your data is not provided, you may not be able to use the password-protected area and the conclusion or execution of the contract may be impossible.

If you provided further data voluntarily (e.g. about interests, preferences, wish list), we process your data which is not necessary for the initiation or fulfilment of a contract, for as long as you use the password-protected area and if you do not delete it yourself beforehand. Our aim in this respect is to optimise the use of the website for you as a user. The legal basis for this is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR.

You can object to the processing of the information provided by you voluntarily. Your right of objection exists if you have reasons arising from your particular situation, unless we can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or, moreover, the processing serves to establish and exercise or defend against legal claims (Art. 21(1) GDPR).

You can manage, change or delete your voluntary information yourself at any time in the password-protected area. You are free to take measures in accordance with the ‘Your rights’ section, although if you do have any complaints we request that you first contact our company.

Registering for events

On the website, you can register as a guest or speaker for events organised by our company or events our company will attend. The basis for processing your data for participation in events invitations is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(b) GDPR. The processing is necessary for the creation, execution or termination of legal transactions with our company (e.g. also when transmitting data to a payment service provider/a shipping company to process a contract with you).

In the registration form you are required to specify your name, your company and your email address. The purpose of the processing is to foster contacts in the IT sector and to improve our corporate image and our public relations work. If you have expressed your interest in a personal appointment, your data will also be processed for preparing and carrying out the appointment. The provision of your data is necessary for the conclusion of the contract. If your data is not provided, the conclusion of the contract is impossible.

Your data will be passed on to third parties (e.g. payment service provider, shipping company and the organiser) for the purpose of payment processing, dispatch of event documents and registering the event with the organiser. A deliberate transfer of your personal data to a so-called third country is not planned.

As soon as processing is no longer necessary, we delete the data generated in this context or, if statutory retention obligations apply, restrict processing of the data.

Comment feature

You can leave comments/posts on the website.

When you post, we process the following personal data:

You do not have to enter a real name and are free to use the feature pseudonymously.

Furthermore, the following data is processed at the time of posting:

When your post is published, the email address you provided will not be published, only the name/pseudonym you shared. Your post will not be checked by us before publication. We reserve the right to remove posts at any time if they are found to be unlawful.

If necessary, we process your email address and your name/pseudonym in order to be able to determine whether the content shared in the post is genuine. Furthermore, we would like to be able to contact you if someone else objects to your post on the website, and to defend ourselves against complaints or claims that may be brought against us as a result of your post.

For this purpose, we also process your IP address. We delete the IP address after 1 week. We will process your email address as long as the post continues to exist on the website or we are involved with the post in the context of a legal dispute.

If you or we delete your post, we process the email address, the name provided and other voluntary information up to the expiry of the statutory limitation periods for the aforementioned reasons of prevention and defence, but restrict the processing of this data after 6 months.

We do not pass the data on to third parties, unless we are obliged to do so by law or by official or judicial order or transmission is necessary for the enforcement of our legitimate interests. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR.

You can object to the processing of the information you provide. Your right of objection exists if you have reasons arising from your particular situation, unless we can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or, moreover, the processing serves to establish and exercise or defend against legal claims (Art. 21(1) GDPR). You can delete your post yourself at any time. You are free to take measures in accordance with the ‘Your rights’ section, although if you do have any complaints we request that you first contact our company.

The legal basis of the processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR. We perform this processing for customer care and to enhance our services. We delete your data when you cancel your newsletter subscription, but no later than two years after termination of the contract.

We would like to point out that you can object to receiving direct advertising at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. Here you have a general right of objection without giving reasons (Art. 21(2) GDPR). To do this, click on the unsubscribe link in the newsletter or send us your objection to the contact data provided under ‘Responsible provider’.

You have the possibility to subscribe on the website to our email newsletter or website push notifications, which we use to inform you regularly about the following content:

In order to receive the newsletter, you need to give us the following personal data:

To subscribe to our email newsletter, please use the double opt-in process. Once you have entered the data marked as mandatory, we will send you an email to the email address you have provided, in which we ask you to expressly confirm your subscription to the newsletter (by clicking on a confirmation link). This is how we ensure that you really want to receive our email newsletter. If no confirmation takes place within 24 hours, we block the information transferred to us and delete it automatically after one month at the latest.

If you wish to register for website push notifications, you first need to agree to receive push notifications from the website in your web browser and confirm your registration.

Furthermore, the following data is processed at the time of subscription:

We process your IP address, the time of registration for the newsletter and for receiving website push notifications as well as the time of your confirmation in order to document your newsletter registration and to prevent abuse of your personal data. The legal basis of the processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPRWe process this data until two years after termination of the contract. If registration for the newsletter takes place and it is unrelated to the conclusion of a contract, we process this data until two years after termination of the usage. We delete this data when the newsletter subscription ends.

After your confirmation, we will process the email address and name/pseudonym of the recipient concerned for the purpose of sending our email newsletter and the website push notifications. The legal basis of the processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(a) GDPR. We delete this data when you unsubscribe from the newsletter.

You can withdraw your consent to the processing of your email address for receiving the newsletter at any time, either by sending us a message (see the contact details under ‘Responsible provider’) or by clicking directly on the unsubscribe link in the newsletter. This does not affect the lawfulness of processing that has occurred based on the consent up until the point of your withdrawal (Art. 13(2)(c) GDPR).

We would like to point out that we analyse your user behaviour in relation to the sending of our newsletter. For this analysis, the emails sent out contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which display single-pixel image files that are embedded in our website. For analysis purposes, we link the data mentioned under ‘Access data’ and the web beacons with your email address and an individual ID. Links received in the newsletter also contain this ID.

We use the data collected in this way to create a user profile in order to tailor the newsletter to your individual interests. Here we record when you read our newsletters, which links you click on in them and draw conclusions about your personal interests. We link this data to actions you perform on our website. The information is processed for as long as you have subscribed to the newsletter. Once you unsubscribe, we process the data for purely statistical purposes and anonymously.

Our intention here is to analyse the use of and to optimise the email advertising we send you. The legal basis of the processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR.

You can object to this tracking at any time by clicking on the separate unsubscribe link provided in each newsletter or by informing us using the contact details provided under ‘Responsible provider’.As regards objecting to data processing for direct marketing purposes, you have a general right of objection without giving reasons (Art. 21(2)GDPR). You can also prevent tracking by disabling the display of images in your email client by default. This will mean that the newsletter will not be displayed completely and you may not be able to use all functions. If you choose to display the images manually, the above tracking will take place.

HubSpot email marketing service

To send out newsletters, we use the HubSpot email marketing service, provided by the company HubSpot Inc., which is headquartered at 1801, 25 First St, 2nd Floor, Cambridge, Massachusetts, 02141, USA, web: https://www.hubspot.com; hereinafter referred to as HubSpot. HubSpot is a service which allows the organisation and analysis of newsletter mailing. The data you enter to subscribe to the newsletter (e.g. email address) will be stored on HubSpot’s servers in the USA. HubSpot has subjected itself to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. You can view HubSpot’s certification at https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000TN8pAAG

The newsletters we send out with HubSpot enable us to analyse the behaviour of newsletter recipients. Among other things, it is possible to analyse how many recipients have opened the newsletter message and how often each link was clicked on in the newsletter. With the help of what’s known as conversion tracking, it can also be analysed whether a pre-defined action (e.g. purchase of a product on our website) took place after the newsletter link was clicked on.

The analysis of the information mentioned serves to recognise the reading habits of the recipients so as to better adapt and distribute our newsletter content accordingly. The legal basis of the processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR. We process this data until two years after termination of the contract. If registration for the newsletter takes place and it is unrelated to the conclusion of a contract, we process this data until two years after termination of the usage. We erase this data when the newsletter subscription ends. We have no knowledge of how long HubSpot stores data and have no way of influencing this. For further information about the protection of your data and your privacy, please refer to: https://legal.hubspot.com/privacy-policy?_ga=2.20881147.2130845781.1527015808-1451404429.1527015808.

You have a general right of objectionto data processing for direct marketing purposes and are not required to give reasons (Art. 21(2) GDPR). You can object tot he processing of data for HubSpot at any time by activating the unsubscribe link at the end of emails sent by HubSpot or by informing us using the contact details provided under `Responsible provider´. This will simultaneously end the processing of data for you being sent the newsletter and for statistical analysis. It is not possible to object tot he distribution via HubSpot or the statistical evaluation separately.

Payment service providers (PSPs)

PayPal

On our website we give you the option of paying via PayPal. This payment service is provided by PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter referred to as “PayPal”).

If you choose to pay via PayPal, the payment details you enter will be transferred to PayPal. The transfer of your data to PayPal is performed on the basis of Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(b) GDPR (processing for the performance of a contract). If the date is not provided, it may be impossible to conclude or execute a contract. We have no knowledge of how long PayPal stores data and have no way of influencing this.

PayPal Plus

If you select the payment method “Direct debit via PayPal PLUS” or “Credit card via PayPal PLUS” when making your booking, then in order to process your payment we will forward the personal data we collect to PayPal (Europe) S.àr.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter referred to as “PayPal”). The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(b) GDPR. The provision of your data is necessary for the conclusion of the contract. If the data is not provided, the conclusion or execution of the contract may be impossible.

PayPal will create an invoice based on the transmitted data and perform an identity and credit check if necessary. PayPal has a legitimate interest here in the transmission of the buyer’s personal data and processes this information in order to obtain information from credit reference agencies for purposes of identity and credit checks, Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR.

These may be the entities specified at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/third-parties-list?locale.x=de_DE and https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/third-parties-list?locale.x=de_DE.

The credit check uses mathematical and statistical methods to calculate a rating with regard to the probability of non-payment (this is known as calculating a scoring value). PayPal uses the calculated scoring value as the basis for its decision whether to provide the respective payment methods. A scoring value is calculated according to recognised scientific methods.

In addition to your address data, information about past payment behaviour and probability values on expected future payment behaviour are also included. We have no knowledge of how long PayPal stores data and have no way of influencing this.

You can contact PayPal via the following contact form: https://www.paypal.com/de/selfhelp/contact/email/privacy. For more information about how PayPal processes your data, please refer to https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full?locale.x=de_DE#r7.

You can object to this processing at any time.

You can send us your objection to the contact data provided under ‘Responsible provider’. However, PayPal remains entitled to process and pass on the customer data if this is necessary for contractual payment processing (Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(b) GDPR) or is required by law or an official or court order (Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(c) GDPR).

In addition, we may pass on your information if this is necessary to protect our rights, as well as the rights of our affiliates, our cooperation partners, our employees and/or users of our website. Under no circumstances will we sell or rent your data to third parties. Such a transmission of your data would be based on Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR.

As soon as storage is no longer necessary, we delete the data generated in this context or, if statutory retention obligations apply, restrict processing of the data.

You have the possibility to object to the processing of your data at any time. Your right of objection exists if you have reasons arising from your particular situation, unless we can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or, moreover, the processing serves to establish and exercise or defend against legal claims (Art. 21(1) GDPR). In particular, you have a right of objection if processing is not necessary to fulfil a contract with you, which is described by us in the previous description of the functions. You can send us your objection to the contact data provided under ‘Responsible provider’. In the event that your objection is justified, we will examine the situation and either stop or adjust the data processing or point out to you the compelling legitimate reasons on the basis of which we will continue processing.

Hosting

We use external hosting services for the provision of the following services: infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage resources and database services, security and technical maintenance services. This involves processing all data necessary for the operation and use of our website.

We use external hosting services to run this website. By using external hosting services, we aim to make the provision of our website efficient and secure. The legal basis of the processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR.

The recording of data for the provision and use of the website and the processing of data using external web hosting services is an absolute necessity for the operation of the website. You may object to the processing. Your right of objection exists if you have reasons arising from your particular situation, unless we can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or, moreover, the processing serves to establish and exercise or defend against legal claims (Art. 21(1) GDPR). You can send us your objection to the contact data provided under ‘Responsible provider’. In the event that your objection is justified, we will examine the situation and either stop or adjust the data processing or point out to you the compelling legitimate reasons on the basis of which we will continue processing.

Integration of third-party content

The website integrates third-party content such as videos, maps, RSS feeds and graphics from other websites. This integration always requires that the providers of this content (“third-party providers”) perceive the IP addresses of users. This is because without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to the browser of the respective user. As such, the IP address is required to display this content.

We endeavour to only use content from third-party providers who process the IP address solely for delivering the content. We do however have no influence over whether the third-party providers process the IP addresses, e.g. for statistical purposes. If we are aware of such activity, we inform you of this in the following.

Some of the third parties may process data outside the European Union.

You can object by installing a JavaScript blocker such as the browser plug-in NoScript (www.noscript.net) or disabling JavaScript in your browser. Your right of objection exists if you have reasons arising from your particular situation, unless we can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or, moreover, the processing serves to establish and exercise or defend against legal claims (Art. 21(1) GDPR). This may however result in functional restrictions on the website.

Google Fonts

We use web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. When you retrieve a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to Google’s servers. By doing so, Google becomes aware that our website has been accessed via your IP address. Our use of Google Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and visually appealing presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR. We have no knowledge of how long Google stores data and have no way of influencing this. For more information about Google Fonts, please refer to https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and Google’s privacy policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

You can object to the processing by changing your browser settings in such a way that the browser does not support web fonts – although then your device will use a default font. Your right of objection exists if you have reasons arising from your particular situation, unless we can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or, moreover, the processing serves to establish and exercise or defend against legal claims (Art. 21(1) GDPR).

YouTube videos

Our website uses plug-ins from the video platform YouTube.de/YouTube.com, a service whose provider – represented by Google – is YouTube LLC (headquartered at 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA; “YouTube”). The plug-ins allow us to embed visual content (“videos”) on this website that we have published on Youtube.de/Youtube.com.

The videos are all embedded in ‘extended privacy mode’, which means that no data about you as a user will be transferred to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Only when you play the videos is the following data transferred. We have no influence on this data transfer.

By visiting the website, YouTube receives the information that you have retrieved the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the data mentioned under ‘Access data’ is submitted. This occurs regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account that you are logged in with or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly associated with your account. If you do not wish for this data to be associated with your YouTube profile, you must log out before activating the button.

YouTube stores your data as usage profiles and processes it for purposes of advertising, market research and/or the demand-oriented design of its website. Such analysis takes place in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide demand-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. YouTube, as part of Google, also processes your personal data in the USA and has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. You can view Google's certification at https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active.

The legal basis of the processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR. The processing serves to make our website more attractive and to offer you additional services.

Services for statistical, analysis and marketing purposes

We use services from third parties for statistical, analysis and marketing purposes. This enables us to offer you a user-friendly, optimised experience when visiting the website. The third-party providers use cookies to control their services (see ‘Cookies’ above). Unless otherwise explained below, this does not involve the processing of personal data.

Some of the third-party providers offer users the option of directly objecting to the use of the respective feature, e.g. by placing an opt-out cookie.

If you activate such an opt-out cookie, the third-party provider will no longer process data about your usage behaviour in the future. It is also possible to merely object individually to a partial selection of external services. If you change the browser or device used or delete all cookies, you will be required to set the opt-out cookie again.

Furthermore, you can also object directly to the use of cookies via the opt-out platform of the organisation Bundesverband Digitale Wirtschaft e.V. (BVDW) at http://www.meine-cookies.org/cookies_verwalten/praeferenzmanager.html or via the deactivation page of the Network Advertising Initiative at http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. Your right of objection exists if you have reasons arising from your particular situation, unless we can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or, moreover, the processing serves to establish and exercise or defend against legal claims (Art. 21(1) GDPR). More information about usage-based advertising and opt-out options can also be viewed via the following link: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/.

In the following, we inform you about the services from external providers currently in use on our website, about the purpose and scope of the respective processing in each case, and about how you can object.

Google Analytics

In order to tailor our website perfectly to your interests, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service from Google. Google Analytics uses ‘cookies’ (see ‘Cookies’ above), which are stored on your device to enable the analysis of how you use the website. The information generated in this way about your use of this website is transferred to and stored by Google on a server in the USA.

However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, then within European Union Member States or in other member states of the European Economic Area Google will shorten your IP address before transferring it. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of this website, compiling reports for us on website activity, and providing us with other services relating to website usage and internet usage.

Google will not associate your browser’s IP address transmitted for Google Analytics purposes with any other data held by Google.

This website uses Google Analytics with the “_anonymizeIp()” extension. As a result, IP addresses are further processed in abbreviated form, meaning that any association with individual persons can be ruled out. As far as the data collected about you relates to you personally, that relation is therefore excluded immediately and the personal data thus erased without delay.

We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. The statistics help us to improve our website and make it more interesting for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has subjected itself to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. You can view Google's certification at https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active. The legal basis of the processing by Google Analytics is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR. The Analytics cookies are deleted after 14 months at the latest.

For more information about the third-party provider Google, please refer to:

http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html, http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/learn/privacy.html, http://www.google.de/intl/en/policies/privacy.

You have the right to object. You can prevent the storage of cookies using the corresponding settings in your browser software; however, we would like to point out that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. Your right of objection exists if you have reasons arising from your particular situation, unless we can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or, moreover, the processing serves to establish and exercise or defend against legal claims (Art. 21(1) GDPR). Furthermore, you can prevent the recording of data generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) and its processing by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Social network plug-ins

Social network plug-ins are integrated into our website. These are provided by the following providers:

The plug-ins can be recognised on our website by the aforementioned lettering or, in some cases, by small stylised symbols.

We offer you the possibility to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only if you click on the marked field and thereby activate it does the plug-in provider receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. In addition, the data mentioned under ‘Access data’ is transmitted.

In the case of Facebook and XING, according to the respective providers’ own information, IP addresses in Germany are anonymised immediately after their collection. By activating the plug-in, personal data about you is therefore transferred to the respective plug-in provider and processed there (in the USA in the case of US providers). Since the plug-in provider collects data via cookies in particular, we recommend that before clicking on the greyed-out box you delete all cookies using your browser’s security settings.

We have no influence on the data collected and processing procedures, and nor are we aware of the full scope of data processing, the purposes of processing, or the storage periods. We also have no information about the erasure of the data collected by the plug-in provider.

The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as usage profiles and processes this for purposes of advertising, market research and/or the demand-oriented design of its website. Such analysis takes place in particular (including for users who are not logged in) to display demand-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website.

The legal basis of the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR. Through the plug-ins we offer you the possibility to interact with social networks and other users, so that we can improve our website and make it more interesting for you as a user.

You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles. Your right of objection exists if you have reasons arising from your particular situation, unless we can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or, moreover, the processing serves to establish and exercise or defend against legal claims (Art. 21(1) GDPR). There are also various ways in which you can prevent the creation of user profiles and thus make use of your right to object:

  • by setting your browser software accordingly; in particular, disabling third-party cookies means that you will not receive any ads from third-party providers;
  • by disabling interest-based ads from providers who are part of the “About Ads” self-regulation initiative via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices; please note that this setting will be erased if you erase your cookies.

The data is transferred regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, the data about you collected by us will be directly assigned to your existing account with that plug-in provider. If you click or tap on the activated button and, for example, share a link to the page, the plug-in provider will also store this information in your user account and share it publicly with your contacts.

After using a social network, we recommend that you log out regularly, especially however before activating the button, as in this way you can avoid being assigned to your profile with the respective plug-in provider.
