Nature and purpose of the processing: For the delivery of our newsletter, we collect personal data which are transmitted to us via an input mask. For an effective registration we need a valid e-mail address. In order to check that a registration is actually made by the owner of an e-mail address, we use the “double opt-in” procedure. For this purpose, we log the registration for the newsletter, the sending of a confirmation e-mail and the receipt of the answer requested herewith. No further data is collected.
Legal basis: On the basis of your expressly granted consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO), we will send you our newsletter or comparable information regularly by e-mail to the e-mail address you have provided. You can revoke your consent to the storage of your personal data and its use for sending the newsletter at any time with effect for the future. You will find a corresponding link in every newsletter. You can also unsubscribe directly on this website at any time or inform us of your revocation using the contact option at the end of this data protection notice.

Storage period: The data will only be processed in this context as long as the corresponding consent has been obtained. Afterwards they will be deleted.
Provision prescribed or necessary: The provision of your personal data is voluntary, based solely on your consent. Unfortunately, we cannot send you our newsletter without existing consent.
Revocation of consent: You can revoke your consent to the storage of your personal data and its use for sending the newsletter at any time with effect for the future. The cancellation can be requested via the link contained in every e-mail or by contacting the data protection officer or the person responsible for data protection listed below.
Nature and purpose of the processing: The data you enter will be stored for the purpose of individual communication with you. For this purpose, it is necessary to provide a valid e-mail address and your name. This serves to assign the enquiry and to subsequently answer it. The specification of further data is optional.
Legal basis: The processing of the data entered in the contact form is based on a legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). By providing the contact form, we would like to make it easy for you to contact us. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your enquiry and for possible follow-up questions.
If you contact us to request an offer, the data entered in the contact form will be processed for the purpose of implementing pre-contractual measures (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO).
Recipient: Recipients of the data may be contract processors.
Storage period: Data will be deleted at the latest 6 months after processing the enquiry. If a contractual relationship is established, we are subject to the statutory retention periods under the German Commercial Code (HGB) and delete your data after these periods have expired.
Provision prescribed or necessary: The provision of your personal data is voluntary. However, we can only process your enquiry if you provide us with your name, your e-mail address and the reason for the enquiry.
Use of Matomo
If you have given your consent, this website uses Matomo (formerly Piwik), an open source software for statistical evaluation of visitor access. The provider of the Matomo software is InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand.
Matomo sets a cookie (a text file) on your end device with which your browser can be recognised. If subpages of our website are called up, the following information is stored:
- the IP address of the user, shortened by the last two bytes (anonymised)
- the called subpage and time of the call
- the page from which the user reached our website (referrer)
- which browser is used with which plugins, which operating system and which screen resolution
- the time spent on the website
- the pages that are accessed from the called subpage
Matomo is used for the purpose of improving the quality of our website and its contents. This enables us to find out how the website is used and to constantly optimise our offer.
By anonymising the IP address by six digits, we take into account the interest of the website visitor in the protection of personal data. The data will not be used to personally identify the website user and will not be merged with other data. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is not passed on to third parties.
Revocation of consent: You can revoke your consent to the storage and evaluation of your data by Matomo at any time using the link below. A so-called opt-out cookie will then be stored on your device, which is valid for two years. It has the consequence that Matomo does not collect any session data. However, please note that the opt-out cookie will be deleted if you delete all cookies.
For more information about the privacy settings of the Matomo software, please refer to the following link: https://matomo.org/docs/privacy/.
Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)
In order to display our content correctly and in a graphically appealing manner across browsers, we use “Google Web Fonts” from Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter “Google”) to display fonts on this website.
On our website we use social plugins from the providers listed below. You can recognise the plugins by the fact that they are marked with the corresponding logo. These plugins may be used to send information, which may also include personal data, to the service provider and may be used by the latter. We prevent the unconscious and unintentional collection and transmission of data to the service provider by a 2-click solution. In order to activate a desired social plugin, it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. Only when the plugin is activated is the collection of information and its transmission to the service provider triggered. We ourselves do not collect any personal data via the social plugins or their use.
We have no influence on what data an activated plugin collects and how this data is used by the service provider. At present, it must be assumed that a direct connection to the provider’s services will be established and at least the IP address and device-related information will be recorded and used. It is also possible that the service provider will attempt to store cookies on the computer used. Please refer to the data protection information of the respective service provider to find out which specific data is collected and how it is used. Note: If you are logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook can identify you as a visitor to a particular page.
We have integrated the social media buttons of the following companies on our website:
- Twitter (https://twitter.com/)
- LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/)
- Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/)
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption procedures (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.
Information about your right of objection according to Art. 21 DSGVO
Right of objection on a case-by-case basis
You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data relating to you, which is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 paragraph 1 letter f DSGVO (data processing based on a weighing of interests); this also applies to profiling based on this provision within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 4 DSGVO. If you lodge an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling reasons for processing which are worthy of protection and which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or unless the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
We reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration so that it always meets the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection declaration then applies to your renewed visit.
