Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in our company. We want you to surf through our pages in a pleasant way and not experience any unpleasant surprises.
On our website, you can enter your personal data on the “Contact” page. This data will only be stored for the purpose of processing and documenting your enquiry. This data will only be passed on if this is necessary to process your enquiry. This data will not be passed on to third parties for advertising purposes.
In addition, our internet service provider collects data in so-called log files during your visit. We receive the name of your internet service provider, your IP address, the internet page from which you came to our website, the internet pages you visit on our website and the date, time and duration of your visit. This data is only used for statistical purposes. We do not establish a personal reference.
Use of buttons with links to social networks
On our website, we use buttons with links to our appearances on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Xing and LinkedIn. These buttons do not transmit any data to the aforementioned social networks. Only when you click on the buttons do you leave our website and are redirected to our websites on the social networks you have clicked on. You are then no longer on our website, but on the websites of the clicked social networks. Depending on your settings in your browser or in the social network, personal data about you will be collected there. The conditions for this can be found in the data protection declarations of the social networks clicked on, for which we cannot accept any responsibility.
We have refrained from using Facebook “Like” buttons on our website, as these would already collect data about you if you have not yet clicked on these buttons. If you would like to express your liking for us using this technique, we would be happy to do so. To do so, simply click on our button with the link to Facebook. You will then find a “Like me” button on our Facebook fan page.
We refrain from integrating social media scripts for data protection reasons, as the social services use tracking methods in the background. Of course, we are happy if you like our posts on our blog and want to share them on social media. For this purpose, we have included share buttons for Twitter, Facebook and Google+ after the posts. When you click on the buttons, you will receive a notice that the social media will load analysis scripts in the background to record user behaviour. Only if you agree to this, corresponding scripts will be uploaded and the amount shared.
Use of Google Analytics
This 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 analyse 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.
We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” in order to ensure anonymised collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). However, this means that your IP address is 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.
In addition, you can prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) by Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).
You can prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on the green button “Analytics settings”. You can then choose whether to allow, deactivate or allow Google Analytics once. If you deactivate Google Analytics there, an opt-out cookie will be set that prevents future collection of your data when visiting this website.
The legal basis for data processing on this website is the EU General Data Protection Regulation. The data will only be stored for as long as is necessary for the above-mentioned purposes or as required by law.
The supervisory authorities are the state data protection commissioners. There you can complain about us if you suspect irregularities in our data protection. You can also contact our external data protection officer directly.
In accordance with the applicable data protection law, we will be happy to inform you on request whether and which personal data we have stored about you. Please contact our data protection officer directly.
