If we process personal data in context of the usage of our website, or if we use contracted service providers for individual functions, offers or services of our website with reference to data processing, or if we want to use your data for advertising purposes, we will inform you in detail below about the respective processes, in particular what data is processed in this context. In doing so, we will also state the intended storage period or, in any case, the defined criteria for the storage period, as well as the relevant legal basis for the respective processing.
I. Name and address of the person responsible

II. . Collection and storage of personal data and the nature, purpose, legal basis and duration of its usage
§ 1 When visiting the website
In the case of merely informative use of the website, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us, we only collect the personal access data in so-called server log files that your browser transmits to our server. The following data is collected as part of the server log files:
- IP Address
- Date and time of your request
- Time-zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
- Content of request (specific page)
- Access Status/HTTP status code
- Data volume transferred in each case
- Website from where the request originated
- Operating system and its interface
- Language and browser software version
This data is evaluated exclusively to ensure trouble-free operation of the site regarding stability and security and to improve our offer and is subsequently discarded. The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p.1 lit. f GDPR (DSGVO). Our legitimate interest results from the aforementioned purposes for data collection.
The data is also stored in the log files of our system. Areas not affected by this are the IP addresses of the user or other data that allows the data to be assigned to a user. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely essential for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility for the user to object.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to reach the purpose for which it was collected. This is the case when the respective session has ended, when data is collected for the provision of the website.
§ 2 When using our website’s additional services, functions and offers
In addition to the purely informational use of our website, we offer functions that you can use if you are interested. This usually requires you to provide further personal data, which we use to deliver the respective service and to which the aforementioned data processing principles apply. The functions are described in more detail below.
When you contact us via our enquiry form or submit a general enquiry, the data you voluntarily provide (your email address, name, as well as company information) will be stored by us in order to answer your question. It is necessary to provide your email address, name and company. The reply will be sent via email.
The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a and b) of the GDPR (DSGVO) based on your consent, given voluntarily, and/or in order to respond to your enquiry.
We delete the data accruing in this context after the completion of the enquiry you have made or restrict the processing if there are legal obligations to retain the data.
III. Usage of cookies
§ 1 Scope of data processing
In order to make the visit to our website user-friendly and effective and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on various pages. These are small text files that are stored on your device and save certain settings and data for exchange with our system via your browser. Certain information flows through the cookies to the entity that sets the cookie (in this case us). Cookies cannot execute programs or transmit viruses to your computer.
Cookies do not contain any personal data and can therefore not be directly assigned to any user. Please note that certain cookies are already set as soon as you enter our website. This website uses the following types of cookies:
- Necessary/functional cookies: These cookies are necessary to enable the operation of our website.
- Transient cookies: These are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include, in particular, session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the joint session. This enables your computer to be recognised when you return to our website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.
- Persistent cookies: These are automatically deleted after a predefined period of time, which may differ depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies at any time in the security settings of your browser.
For more information on Analytical Cookies, see IV.
IV. Usage of analytical tools
Web analysis services are used on our website for the purposes of needs-based design and advertising.
We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. This means that your IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of 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, will not be merged with other Google data.
Alternatively, to the browser plugin you can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the link, especially with mobile device browsers. An opt-out cookie will be set that prevents the collection of your data during future visits to 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.
Order data processing
We have concluded an order data processing contract with Google and implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
We use Google Analytics to analyse and continuously improve the use of our website. The statistics obtained enable us to improve our offer 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 submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR (DSGVO). Our legitimate interest results from the aforementioned purposes.
Third-party provider information: Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001. User conditions: http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html, Overview of data protection: http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/learn/privacy.html, as well as the data protection declaration: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.
b. MyFonts Counter
On this website we use MyFonts Counter, a web analytics service provided by MyFonts Inc, 500 Unicorn Park Drive, Woburn, MA 01801, USA. Due to the terms of the licence, page-view tracking is carried out, where the number of visits to the website is counted for statistical purposes and transmitted to MyFonts. MyFonts only collects anonymised data. If necessary, the data is passed on by activating Java Script code in your browser. To prevent the execution of Java Script code from MyFonts completely, you can install a Java Script blocker (e.g. www.noscript.net). You can find further information about MyFonts Counter in the MyFonts data protection information at http://www.myfonts.com/info/terms-and-conditions/#Privacy.
V. Linking to our social media presences
Our website contains links to our social media presences:
When you visit our site, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the social network. Only if you click on the link and thereby reach our page on the corresponding social network, the provider of the social network receives the information that you have accessed the appropriate website from our online offer. In addition, the data mentioned under III. §1 of this declaration is transmitted. In the case of Facebook, according to the respective providers in Germany, the IP address is anonymised immediately after collection. By clicking on the link, your personal data is thus transmitted to the respective provider of the social network and stored there (in the case of US providers, in the USA). Since the provider collects the data particularly via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies via your browser’s security settings before clicking on the link.
We have no influence on the collected data and data processing procedures, nor are we aware of the full extent of the data collection, the purposes of the processing and the storage periods. We also have no information on the deletion of the collected data by the provider of the social network.
The provider of the social network stores the data collected about you as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out particularly (also for users who are not logged in) for the display of needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the person responsible for data protection from the respective provider of the social network, in order to exercise this right. Via the links, we offer you the opportunity to interact with the social networks and other users so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR (DSGVO). Our legitimate interest is derived from the aforementioned purposes.
The data transfer takes place regardless of whether you have an account with the provider of the social network and are logged in. If you are logged in, the data we collect is directly assigned to your account with the respective provider. If you click on the link and, for example, link to the page, the plug-in provider also saves this information in your user account and shares it publicly with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, but especially before clicking on the link, as this will prevent it from being assigned to your profile with the provider.
For further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the provider of the social network, please refer to the data protection declarations of these providers provided below. There, you will also receive further information on your rights in this respect and setting options for protecting your personal privacy.
Addresses of the respective plug-in providers and URL with their privacy notices:
Facebook Inc, 1601 S California Ave, Palo Alto, California 94304, USA; http://www.facebook.com/policy.php; further information on data collection: http://www.facebook.com/help/186325668085084, http://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/ your-info-on-other#applications and http://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/your-info# everyoneinfo. Facebook has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
VI. Integration of Google reCaptcha and Google Fonts/MyFonts
We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereinafter “reCAPTCHA”) on our websites. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). The purpose of reCAPTCHA is to check whether data entry on our websites (e.g. in a contact form) is made by a human or by an automated program. For this purpose, reCAPTCHA analyses the behaviour of the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis begins automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. For the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, time spent by the website visitor on the website or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to Google.
However, due to the IP anonymisation on this website (cf. section IV), your IP address will be shortened 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 to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of reCaptcha will not be merged with other Google data.
The data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR (DSGVO). We have a legitimate interest in protecting our website from abusive, automated spying and SPAM.
b) Google Fonts
Google web fonts (http://www.google.com/webfonts/) are used to improve the visual presentation of various information on this website. The web fonts are installed locally on this website. A connection to Google servers does not take place.
Information on the data protection conditions of Google Web Fonts can be found at: https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq#Privacy
General information on data protection is available in the Google Privacy Center at: http://www.google.com/intl/de-DE/privacy/
To display the fonts on our website, we use web fonts from “myfonts.com”, a font service provided by MyFonts lnc. (“myfonts.com”), 600 Unicorn Park Drive, Woburn, MA 01801, USA. MyFonts provides licensed fonts that can be embedded on Internet pages. For billing and licence control purposes, a so-called tracking pixel/web beacon from MyFonts has been stored on our website. This can be used, for example, to transmit the IP address or technical data of the website visitor’s end device to MyFonts. Further information on data protection at MyFonts can be found at the following link: https://www.myfonts.com/legal/privacy-policy
Use of Google Adwords Conversion
We use the Google Adwords service to draw attention to our attractive offers on external websites with the help of advertising media (so-called Google Adwords). We can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns. In doing so, we pursue the interest of showing you advertising that is of interest to you, of making our website more interesting for you, and of achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs.
These advertisements are delivered by Google via so-called “ad servers”. For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, which can be used to measure certain parameters for measuring success, such as the display of ads or clicks by users. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Adwords will store a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. The unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values for this cookie.
These cookies allow Google to recognise your internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an Adwords’ client’s website and the cookie stored on their computer has not yet expired, Google and the client will be able to detect that the user has clicked on the ad and been redirected to that page. A different cookie is assigned to each Adwords’ customer. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of Adwords’ customers. We ourselves do not collect and process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. Based on these evaluations, we can see which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising media, in particular we cannot identify the users based on this information.
Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with Google’s server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected through the use of this tool by Google and therefore inform you according to the level of our knowledge: Through the integration of AdWords Conversion, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on one of our advertisements. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider will find out your IP address, store it and link it to other data.
You can prevent participation in this tracking process in various ways:
a) by appropriately setting your browser software, in particular the suppression of third-party cookies means that you do not receive advertisements from third-party providers;
b) by disabling cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain “www.googleadservices.com”, https://www.google.de/settings/ads, whereby the setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies;
c) by deactivating the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the self-regulation campaign “About Ads” via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices, whereby this setting is deleted when you delete your cookies;
d) by permanently deactivating it in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browsers under the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. Please note that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent.
The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR (DSGVO). Our legitimate interest results from the aforementioned purposes.
You can find more information about data protection at Google here:
Google Inc., 1600, Amphitheater Parkway, Mountainview, California, 94043, USA; http://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy and https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html. Alternatively, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) website at http://www.networkadvertising.org. Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
