You have explicitly given us your consent, the processing is necessary to handle a contract with you, the processing is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation, the processing is necessary to safeguard legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in the non-disclosure of your data.

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as provided for in the various storage periods provided for by law. After the respective purpose or expiry of these periods, the corresponding data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with the statutory provisions.

Collection of General Information when you visit our website
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected with a cookie. This information (server log files) includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider and similar information. This is exclusively information which does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about you as a person.

This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the contents of websites requested by you and is mandatory when using the Internet. They are processed in particular for the following purposes:

Ensuring a trouble-free connection of the website, ensuring a smooth use of our website, evaluation of system security and stability as well as for other administrative purposes.

The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest from the aforementioned purposes for data collection. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. The recipients of the data are only the responsible body and, if applicable, the contract processor.

Anonymous information of this kind may be statistically evaluated by us in order to optimize our Internet presence and the technology behind it.

Like many other websites, we also use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. This automatically provides us with certain data such as IP address, browser used, operating system and your connection to the Internet.

Cookies cannot be used to start applications or to transmit viruses to a computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can make navigation easier for you and enable the correct display of our web pages.

Under no circumstances will the data collected by us be passed on to third parties or a link to personal data established without your consent.

Of course, you can also view our website without cookies. Internet browsers are usually pre-set to accept cookies. In general, you can disable cookies entirely at any time via your browser settings (please use the help functions of your internet browser to learn how you can adjust these settings) or via your privacy settings. Please note that some features of our website may not work if you have previously disabled the use of cookies.

Facebook, Custom Audiences and Facebook marketing services
Within our online offer, the so-called “Facebook Pixel” of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or if you are a resident of the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”), is used due to our legitimate interests in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offer and for these purposes.

Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and thus offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law.

With the help of the Facebook pixel, it is possible for Facebook to determine the visitors to our online offer as a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called “Facebook ads”). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display the Facebook ads placed by us only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called “Custom Audiences”). With the help of the Facebook pixel, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and do not have a harassing effect. With the help of the Facebook pixel, we can also track the effectiveness of the Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called “conversion”).

The Facebook pixel is integrated directly by Facebook when our website is called up and can save a so-called cookie (see section “Cookies”), i.e. a small file, on your device. If you subsequently log in to Facebook or visit Facebook while logged in, your visit to our online offering will be noted in your profile. The data collected about you is anonymous for us, so it does not allow us to draw any conclusions about the identity of the user. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and can be used by Facebook and for its own market research and advertising purposes. If we should transmit data to Facebook for matching purposes, this data is encrypted locally in the browser and only then sent to Facebook via a secure https connection. This is done solely for the purpose of matching the data with the data encrypted in the same way by Facebook.

Furthermore, when using the Facebook Pixel, we use the additional function “extended matching” (data such as telephone numbers, e-mail addresses or Facebook IDs of the users) to create target groups (“Custom Audiences” or “Look Alike Audiences”) which are transmitted to Facebook (encrypted). Further information on “advanced matching”:

Also based on our legitimate interests, we use the “Custom Audiences from File” procedure of the social network Facebook, Inc. In this case, the email addresses of the newsletter recipients are uploaded to Facebook. The upload process is encrypted. The upload is used solely to determine recipients of our Facebook ads. In this way, we want to ensure that the ads are only displayed to users who are interested in our information and services.

The processing of the data by Facebook takes place within the framework of Facebook’s data usage policy. Accordingly, general guidance on the display of Facebook ads, in Facebook’s Data Use Policy: For specific information and details about the Facebook Pixel and how it works, please visit Facebook’s help section:

You can opt out of the Facebook Pixel’s collection and use of your data to serve Facebook ads. To control what types of ads are displayed to you within Facebook, you can visit the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions for usage-based advertising settings: The settings are platform independent, i.e. they are applied to all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.

If you have already agreed to the use of the Facebook pixel in the cookie settings and now wish to revoke this, you can click on the following button and deactivate the cookies in the “Advertising” category:

On the basis of your explicit consent, we will regularly send you our newsletter or comparable information by e-mail via the provider Mailerlite to your specified e-mail address.

Your e-mail address is sufficient for receiving the newsletter, but optionally you can also enter your first and last name for personalization purposes. When registering to receive our newsletter, the data provided by you will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers may also be notified by e-mail of circumstances relevant to the service or registration (e.g. changes to the newsletter offer or technical circumstances).

For an effective registration we need a valid e-mail address. In order to verify 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 to the newsletter, the sending of a confirmation e-mail and the receipt of the requested answer. Further data will not be collected. The data is used exclusively for the newsletter dispatch and stored on the server of the provider Mailerlite. The Privacy Policy of Mailerlite applies.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of your personal data and its use for the newsletter dispatch at any time. In each newsletter you will find a corresponding link. In addition, you can also unsubscribe directly at any time or inform us of your corresponding request via the contact option indicated at the top of this data protection information.

This is used to assign the request and then reply to it. The specification of further data is optional.
