3.1 Server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

• Browser type and browser version • Operating system used • Referrer URL • Host name of the accessing computer • Time of server request • IP address

These data will not be merged with other data sources. Section 6 paragraph 1 lit. f of the data protection basic regulation serves as the legal basis, which permits the processing of data in compliance with a contract or pre-contractual measures. These access data are evaluated exclusively for the purpose of ensuring the trouble-free operation of the site and improving our service. In accordance with section 6, paragraph 1 lit. f of the data protection basic regulation this serves to safeguard our predominant legitimate interest in a correct presentation of our offer within the framework of a weighing of interests.

3.2 Contact form

If you send us enquiries through the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact data you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on these data without your consent.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is thus exclusively based on your consent (Section 6, paragraph 1 lit. a of the data protection basic regulation. You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal note by e-mail to us is sufficient.

We transmit personal data to third parties only if this is necessary within the scope of the contract processing, for example to the financial institution commissioned with the payment processing. A further transmission of the data does not take place or only if you have expressly agreed to the transmission.

The basis for data processing is Section 6, paragraph 1, lit b of the data protection basic regulation, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

3.5 Hosting services through a third-party provider

As part of processing on our behalf, a third-party provider renders us with the services of hosting and presenting the website.

• Use of Google (Universal) Analytics for web analysis Insofar as you have given your consent in accordance with section 6, paragraph 1, lit. a of the data protection basic regulations, this website uses Google (Universal) Analytics, a web analysis service of Google LLC (www.google.de) for the purpose of website analysis. Google (Universal) Analytics uses methods that enable an analysis of your use of the website, such as cookies. The automatically collected information about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. By activating the IP-anonymization on this website, the IP address is shortened before transmission within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The anonymized IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is generally not merged with other Google data. After discontinuation of the purpose and end of the use of Google Analytics by us, the data collected in this context will be deleted.

Google LLC is headquartered in the USA and is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. A current certificate can be viewed here. Based on this agreement between the USA and the European Commission, the latter has established an adequate level of data protection for companies certified under the privacy shield. You can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB. This prevents the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google. As an alternative to the browser plugin, you can click this link to prevent Google Analytics from recording data on this website in the future. In doing so, an opt-out cookie will be stored on your terminal. If you delete your cookies, you will be asked again to give your consent. • Social Media Plug-ins Use of social plugins from Facebook, Google, Twitter, Instagram. On our website, so-called social plug-ins (“plugins”) from social networks are used. If you call up a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of Facebook, Google, Twitter or Instagram. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly to your browser by the respective provider and integrated into the page. By integrating the plugins, the providers receive the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a profile or are not logged in. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a server of the respective provider (possibly in the USA) and stored there. If you are logged in to one of the services, the providers can directly assign the visit to our website to your profile in the respective social network. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the “Like” or “Share” button, the corresponding information is also sent directly to a provider’s server and stored there. The information is also published on the social network and displayed to your contacts. This serves to safeguard our legitimate interests, which predominate when weighing up the interests, in the optimum marketing of our products and services in accordance with Section 6, paragraph 1, lit f of the data protection basic regulations. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the providers as well as a contact option and your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the providers’ data protection information. http://www.facebook.com/policy.php

https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388 If you do not want the social networks to associate the data collected via our website directly with your profile in the relevant service, you must log out of the relevant service before visiting our website. You can also completely prevent the loading of the plugins with add-ons for your browser, e.g. with the script blocker “NoScript” (http://noscript.net/).

• Plugins and tools 9.1 Google Web Fonts This site uses so-called web fonts, which are provided by Google, for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

The information is also published on the social network and displayed to your contacts. This serves to safeguard our legitimate interests, which predominate when weighing up the interests, in the optimum marketing of our products and services in accordance with Section 6, paragraph 1, lit f of the data protection basic regulations. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the providers as well as a contact option and your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the providers’ data protection information. http://www.facebook.com/policy.php
