VI. 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 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. In the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, however, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to 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 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 data from Google.
This website also uses Google Analytics for a cross-device analysis of visitor flows, which is carried out via a user ID. You can deactivate the cross-device analysis of your usage in your customer account under "My Data", "Personal Data".
1. data transfer outside the EU
The GDPR ensures an equally high level of data protection within the European Union. When selecting our service providers, we therefore rely on European partners wherever possible when your personal data is to be processed. Only in exceptional cases will we have data processed outside the European Union in the context of using third-party services. We will only allow your data to be processed in a third country if the special requirements of Art. 44 et seq. DSGVO are fulfilled. This means that the processing of your data may then only take place on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognized determination by the EU Commission of a level of data protection corresponding to the EU or the observance of officially recognized special contractual obligations, the so-called "standard data protection clauses".
VII. Use of Google Fonts
We integrate the fonts ("Google Fonts") of the provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, on the basis of our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1) f DSGVO. The aim is the optimization and economic operation of our homepage.

After you have registered for an e-mail newsletter, we store your e-mail address until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. The storage serves the sole purpose of being able to send you the newsletter. Furthermore, we store your IP addresses and the times of registration and confirmation to prevent misuse of your personal data.
The only mandatory information for sending the newsletter is the e-mail address. The provision of further, separately marked, information is voluntary and will only be used to personalize the newsletter.
We would like to point out that we evaluate your user behavior when sending the newsletter. For this evaluation, the e-mails sent contain so-called web beacons, also called tracking pixels. These are single-pixel image files that link to our website and thus enable us to evaluate your user behavior. This is done by collecting the data mentioned in IV as well as web beacons that are assigned to your e-mail address and linked to a separate ID.
IX. Social Media
1. social media platforms
Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA)
LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland
2. social media presence
We maintain fan pages within various social networks and platforms with the aim of communicating with customers, interested parties and users active there and informing them about our services there.
We would like to point out that your personal data may be processed outside the European Union in the process, so that risks may arise for you in this regard (for example, when enforcing your rights under European / German law).
User data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, usage profiles can be created from the usage behavior and resulting interests of the users. These usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements within and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the users' computers, in which the usage behavior and interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, data may also be stored in the usage profiles regardless of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them).
The processing of the users' personal data is based on our legitimate interests in effectively informing users and communicating with users pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f. DSGVO. If users are asked by the respective providers for consent to data processing (i.e. declare their consent e.g. by ticking a checkbox or confirming a button), the legal basis of the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a. DSGVO.
For more information about the processing of your personal data and your objection options, please refer to the links of the respective provider listed below. The assertion of information and other rights of the data subjects can also be made against the providers, then only they have direct access to the data of the users and have the corresponding information. Of course, we are available to answer any queries and provide support if you need assistance.
3. integration of YouTube videos
We have integrated YouTube videos into our online offer, which are stored on http://www.youtube.com and can be played directly from our website. These are all integrated in "extended data protection mode", which means that no data about you as a user is transmitted to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Only when you play the videos will the data mentioned in paragraph 2 be transmitted. We have no influence on this data transmission.
By visiting the website, YouTube receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding sub-page of our website. This occurs regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not want the assignment with your profile at YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide 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 YouTube to exercise this right.
The legal basis for the use of YouTube is our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f, which is to provide our users with the most extensive and appealing user experience possible.
X. LinkedIn Insight Tag for Analytics & LinkedIn Ads
We use the conversion tracking technology and the retargeting function of LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA on our website with your consent. With the help of this technology, visitors to our website can be shown personalized advertisements on LinkedIn. Furthermore, it is possible to create anonymous reports on the performance of the advertisements as well as information on website interaction. For this purpose, the LinkedIn Insight tag is embedded on this website, which establishes a connection to the LinkedIn server if you visit this website and are logged into your LinkedIn account at the same time. 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 LinkedIn. The information collected by the LinkedIn Insight tag about your use of our website is encrypted. The cookie is stored in the LinkedIn member's browser until the member deletes the cookie or the cookie expires (the expiration date is rolling six months after the member's browser has loaded the Insight tag for the last time).
The data processing is based on your consent and thus on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. You can object to the collection and use of your data for the display of LinkedIn Ads at any time or revoke your consent, e.g. by changing your cookie settings on our site accordingly.
