We will use the personal data provided by you only for the purpose of
contract processing and the processing of your enquiries or your

obliged to do so by law.
Your data will only be processed in countries of the European Economic Area (i.e. the member states of the European Union as well as Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein).
Your data will be processed by us for as long as it is necessary to initiate or fulfil a contract or to process your request.

When using the website, we do not collect any personal data, with the exception of the data provided to us via Google Analytics, which your browser transmits and which is technically necessary to enable you to visit the website and to guarantee its stability and security (legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f DS-GVO):
We evaluate this data for statistical purposes only. A person-related
evaluation does not take place. Temporary storage of your IP address is
necessary to enable delivery of the website to your terminal. For this
the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the
session. In addition, the data serves us to optimize the website and to
ensure the security of our information technology systems. These
purposes also constitute our legitimate interest in data processing in
accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GMO.
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.

use so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on
your hard disk with the help of your browser and through which the place
that sets the cookie (here by us) receives certain information.

However, due to the activation of IP anonymisation on the website,
Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European
Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic
Area (EEA) prior to transmission. Only in exceptional cases will the
full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and
shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to
compile reports on the activities on our website for us and to provide
other services relating to website and Internet use. Our legitimate
interest in data processing also lies in these purposes. Google may also
transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or
if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. According to

use the full functionality of the website. You can prevent Google from
collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of
the website (incl. IP address) and from processing this data by Google
by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the
following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).
The plug-in “Google+” (Google Plus) is integrated on our website.
Provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA
94043, United States (“Google”).
When you visit our website, your browser establishes a direct connection to Google’s servers, which in turn transmits the content of the plug-in to your browser and integrates it into the website displayed. This will forward the information that you have visited our website to Google.
If you are logged in to Google Plus or Google via your personal account while visiting our website, Google may associate your visit to our website with this account. By interacting with plug-ins, e.g. by clicking the button or leaving a comment, this information is transmitted directly to Google and stored there. Google stores both the information that you gave +1 for a content and information about the page that you viewed when you clicked +1. Your +1 can appear in Google services, such as search results or your Google profile, or elsewhere on websites and ads, along with your profile name and photo.
Google records information about your +1 activity as it sees fit to improve Google services for you and other users. To use the Google+ button, you need a public Google profile that is visible worldwide and must contain at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name may also replace another name you used when sharing content through your Google Account. The identity of your Google profile may be displayed to users who know your email address or have other identifying information about you.
If you are a Google+ member or have logged in to Google and do not want Google to collect information about you when you visit our site and link it to your membership information stored on Google, you must log out of Google+ or Google before visiting our site.
Our website uses functions of the LinkedIn network. The provider is
LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA
(“LinkedIn”). Every time you visit one of our websites that contains
functions of LinkedIn, a connection to LinkedIn’s servers is
established. LinkedIn is informed that you have visited our website with
your IP address. If you click the “Recommend-Button” of LinkedIn and are
logged in with your account at LinkedIn, LinkedIn is able to assign your
visit to our website to you and your LinkedIn user account. We point out
that we have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted to
LinkedIn or of their use by LinkedIn.
Our website uses the social plugin of the social network facebook.com,
which is operated by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA
94304, USA (“Facebook”). This social plugin is marked with a Facebook
logo. When you visit our website, the social plugin establishes a direct
connection between your browser and Facebook’s servers. Facebook
receives the information that you have visited our website with your IP
address. If you are logged in to Facebook via your personal account
during your visit to our site, Facebook may associate your visit to our
site with your Facebook account. Please note that this information is
already exchanged when you visit our website, regardless of whether you
interact with the social plugin. By interacting with the Facebook Social
Plugin – e.g. by clicking the “I like” or “Like” buttons or leaving a
comment – this information is transmitted directly to the Facebook
network and stored there.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook and your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in Facebook’s data protection declaration, which can be accessed under the following link: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/
If you do not want Facebook to associate your visit to our site with your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our site. Even if you are not logged in to Facebook, data can still be sent to Facebook from websites with social plug-ins. If you do not want Facebook to collect data about you via social plug-ins, you can select the “Block third party cookies” function in your browser settings. Then your browser does not send cookies to the server for embedded content from other providers. With this setting, however, other cross-page functions may no longer work in addition to the social plugins.

Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA (“YouTube”). YouTube is
represented by Google Inc. based at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain
View, CA 94043, USA.
On our website we use plugins from YouTube. If you call up the Internet pages of our Internet presence provided with such a plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established and the plugin is displayed. This transfers to the YouTube server that you have visited our website or which subpages of our website you have visited. If you are logged in as a YouTube member, YouTube assigns this information to your personal YouTube account. When using the plugin, e.g. clicking the start button of a video, this information is also assigned to your YouTube user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your YouTube user account and other YouTube LLC and Google Inc. user accounts and deleting the corresponding company cookies before using our website.
