Basic facts concerning data processing
The protection of your personal data is a particular concern to us. Therefore we only process your data on the basis of the legal regulations (General Data Protection Regulation GDPR). With this data protection statement we make you aware of the most important aspects of data processing in the scope of our website.
This data protection declaration informs you about type, extent and purpose of the personal data processing within the range of our online offering and the websites, functions and contents (hereinafter commonly referred to as “online offering” or “website”) connected to that. The validity of the data protection declaration does not depend on the domains, systems, platforms and devices (e. g. desktop or mobile) used for the performance of the online offering.
Collection, processing and utilisation of personal data
Concerning the used terms (e. g. “personal data” or its “processing”) we refer to the definition in article 4 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The personal data processed in the scope of this online offering includes usage data (e. g. the visited websites of our online offering, interest in our products) and content data (e. g. input in our contact form).
The term “user” includes all types of persons who are affected by data processing. These include our business partners, customers, interested persons and other visitors of our website.
We only process your personal data in compliance with the relevant data protection provisions. This means that your data will only be processed if a legal permission is provided. This means especially if the data processing is necessary or rather legally required for the fulfillment of our contractual services (e. g. processing of requests) as well as for our online services, if a permission from you exists or because of our legitimate interests (this means interest in the analysis, optimisation, the profitable operation and the safety of our online offering; article 6, section 1 lit. f. GDPR), especially concerning the range measurement, the creation of profiles for advertisement and marketing purposes as well as the collection of accession data and the utilisation of the services from third-party providers.
We refer to the following legal bases:
Legal basis for consents: Art. 6, section 1 lit. a. and Art. 7 GDPR
Legal basis for the data processing to fulfil our services and to execute contractual measures: Art. 6, section 1 lit. 1 lit. b. GDPR
Legal basis for the data processing to fulfil our legal obligations: Art. 6, 1 lit. c. GDPR
Legal basis for the data processing to protect our legitimate interests: Art. 6, 1 lit. f. GDPR
We execute organisational, contractual and technical safety measures, which are state-of-the-art, to ensure that the provisions of the data protection laws are fulfilled and also to protect the data processed by us from accidently or purposely caused manipulations, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons.

Collection of access data and log files
We collect data of every access to the server, on which this website is located, (so-called server log files) on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6, section 1 lit. f GDPR). This access data includes the name of the requested website as well as file, date and time of the website request, the amount of transferred data, the alert about the successful request, type and version of the browser, your operating system, the referral URL (the website you have visited before if our website has been accessed by a link) and your IP-address.
Log file information is stored due to safety reasons (e. g. for the identification of misuse or fraudulent acts) for up to three months and will be deleted afterwards.
Data, whose storage is necessary for evidence purposes, is excluded from deletion until the relevant incident has been completely solved.
Cookies and range measurement
Cookies are pieces of information, which are transferred from our webserver or from third parties’ webservers to your web browser and are stored there for future access. Cookies can be small files or other kinds of information storage.
We use “session-cookies”, which are only stored for the duration of your current visit to our online presence. A randomly generated unique identification number, a so-called session-ID, is put into a session-cookie. Additionally a cookie contains information about origin and storage period limitation. These cookies are not able to record other data. Session-cookies will be deleted after you have terminated the utilisation of our online offering and e. g. close the browser.
This data protection declaration informs you about the utilisation of cookies in the scope of pseudonymous range measurement.
If you do not want cookies to be stored in your computer system, we ask you to deactivate the corresponding option in the system settings of your browser. Stored cookies can be deleted in the system settings of your browser. The exclusion of cookies can reduce the functions of our website for you. You can object to the utilisation of cookies, which serve for the purposes of range measurements and advertising, via the deactivation website of the initiative concerning network advertising (http://optout.networkadvertising.org/) and also the US-American website (http://www.aboutads.info/choices) or the European website (http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/).

Google is certified in accordance with the privacy-shield-agreement and thus provides a guarantee to comply with the European law on data protection. (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).
Operating principle of Google Analytics:
Google will utilise this information on our behalf to analyse your usage of our website, to create reports about your activity in the framework of this online offering and to execute other services for us in connection with the utilisation of this website and the internet. In the course of this the processed data from your utilisation can be used for pseudonymous utilisation profiles.
Anonymisation of your data:
We only use Google Analytics with an activated IP-anonymisation. This means that your IP-address willed be shortened by Google within the member states of the European Union or within other contractual countries to the agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases your full IP-address will be sent to the server of Google in the USA and shortened there. The IP-address, which your browser transfers, will not be merged with other data of Google.
You can prevent the storage of the cookies by a corresponding setting within your browser software; furthermore you can prevent the transfer of the data, which has been created by the cookie and is based on your utilisation of our website, to Google as well as the processing of this data by Google if you download and install the browser plug in, which can be downloaded by using the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Integration of third-party services and contents:
It is possible that content of third parties (e. g. map material of Google Maps, fonts …) is integrated within our website. This requires that the providers of that contents (“third-party providers”) read your IP-address. The content cannot be sent to your browser without the IP-address. Hence your IP-address is necessary for the presentation of the contents.
We endeavour to only use such contents, whose corresponding providers only utilise your IP-address for the delivery of the contents.
Third-party providers can use so-called pixel-tags (invisible graphics, which are also called “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. By using “pixel-tags” information like visitor traffic on the pages of this website can be analysed. The pseudonymous information can be stored in your device via cookies and can contain amongst others technical information concerning your browser and your operating system, linking websites, visiting time as well as other information about the utilisation of our online offering. This information can also be merged with such information from other sources.
Hereinafter we have listed an overview of third-party providers, their contents, the link to their corresponding data protection declaration (contains further information about the processing of your data) and, partly already mentioned herein, ways to make an objection (“opt-out”):
