1. GENERAL INFORMATION
The concept of personal data is defined in the German Federal Data Protection Act. According to this legislation, this term refers to the particulars of personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable individual person. This includes, for example, your real name, address, telephone number, or date of birth.
Unless otherwise indicated in the following sections, as a general rule no personal data is collected, processed, or used when you use our website.
This data privacy statement extends to personal and non-personal data as well as to collected reports for statistical analysis.
1.1. VISITING OUR WEBSITE ANONYMOUSLY
As a general rule, you can use our website without sharing your identity with us. However, when you view our website, some information will still be transmitted, such as the IP address, type and version of the web browser being used, the operating system being used, the website of origin, and the time of the query.
We cannot use this data to identify individual users. This information will be used purely for statistical analysis and exclusively employed to improve the attractiveness, content, and functionality of our website.
1.2 COLLECTION, PROCESSING, AND USE OF PERSONAL DATA
The personal data transmitted to us in this manner will be used exclusively for the designated purpose. If we request information in our contact form that is not required for establishing contact with the user, we always designate these fields as optional.
The disclosure of your personal data is optional.
2. APPLICATION FOR EMPLOYMENT
You can also submit an electronic application for employment at our company. Needless to say, we will use the information you provide solely to process your application and will not share it with third parties. Please be aware that unencrypted e-mails are not access-protected.
3. DATA TRANSMISSION
As a general rule, your data will not be transmitted to third parties unless we are legally obligated to do so, or the transfer of the data is necessary in order to fulfill the contract, or you have expressly given your prior consent for the transfer of your data. External service providers and partner companies will receive your data only if this is necessary for the performance of the contract. In these cases, the scope of the transmitted data is limited to the necessary minimum. If our service providers come into contact with your personal data, we guarantee that they will comply with the regulations of the data protection laws in the same way. Please also note the respective data privacy statements of the providers. The relevant service provider is responsible for the content of external services, although we will implement a review of the services provided, within reasonable limits, to ensure that the legal requirements are being met.
If you do not consent to the storage and analysis of the data from your visit, you can subsequently opt out of the storage and usage of this data at any time at the click of a mouse. In this case, a so-called opt-out cookie is stored in your browser, ensuring that Piwik is unable to collect any session data. Warning: When you delete your cookies, the opt-out cookie will also be deleted as a result, and you may need to activate it again.
Here, you can decide whether or not to allow a unique web analytics cookie to be stored in your browser, in order to enable the website operator to gather and analyze various statistical data. If you do not wish to allow these cookies, click the following link to store the Piwik deactivation cookie in your browser.
4.2 GOOGLE ADWORDS AND CONVERSION TRACKING
In order to draw attention to our services, we advertise via Google AdWords, and as part of this we use Google Conversion Tracking and Google Tag Manager to create personalized, interest-oriented, and location-specific online advertisements. The option of anonymizing IP addresses in Google Tag Manager is regulated through an internal setting that is not visible in the page source. This internal setting is set in such a way that the level of IP address anonymity meets the requirements of the German Federal Data Protection Act.
The ads appear after searches are made on websites in the Google Display Network. We have the opportunity to combine our ads with specific search keywords. With the help of cookies, we are able to create ads based on the user’s previous visits to our website.
This technology allows Google, as well as us, the client, to know when a user clicked on an ad and was transferred to our website. The information obtained as a result is used exclusively to improve advertising through statistical analysis. We do not obtain any information that makes it possible for visitors to be personally identified. The statistics provided to us by Google include the total number of users who clicked on our ads, and, if possible, whether these users were redirected to a conversion-tagged page of our website. With the aid of these statistics, we can track which search keywords result in the most clicks on our ads, and which ads lead to the user making contact via the contact form.
If you do not want this, you can, for example, adjust the settings on your browser to prevent the storage of the cookie required for this technology. In this case, your visit will not be included in the user statistics.
Nevertheless, both we and Google will still receive the statistical information as to how many users visited this website and when they visited it. If you do not wish to be included even in these statistics, you can prevent this by using additional programs for your browser (such as the add-on Ghostery).
5. YOUR RIGHTS
Upon request, we will provide you with written notice, in accordance with the applicable law, informing you whether or not your personal data is being stored by us and, if so, which data is being stored. You can also contact us, free of charge, if you have any questions regarding the collection, processing, or use of your personal data, as well as the amendment, blocking, or deletion thereof, or if you wish to revoke consent that you have previously given. We will respond to all reasonable inquiries free of charge and as quickly as possible, in accordance with the applicable law. In addition, please note that you have the right to correct inaccurate data or delete personal data, provided that this claim is not precluded by a statutory retention obligation.
We take all necessary technical and organizational precautions to prevent unauthorized access to your personal data.
Your personal data is accessible only by employees who need to have access to your data in order to handle your affairs. Our employees are obligated to maintain secrecy and to comply with data protection regulations.

This data privacy statement does not extend to external links provided on our website. Every time a link is included on our website, we endeavor to ensure that the third-party provider also complies with the provisions of data protection law. However, we have no say in whether or not the third-party provider continues to comply with the provisions of data protection law. Therefore, please read the data privacy statement on the third-party provider’s website.

These plugins normally collect your data by default and transmit this data to the servers of the respective providers. In order to guarantee the protection of your privacy, we have taken technical measures to ensure that your data cannot be collected without your consent by the providers of the respective plugins. When a page with integrated plugins is viewed, they will initially be deactivated. The plugins are only activated when the respective symbol is clicked on. By clicking on this symbol, you give your consent for your data to be transmitted to the respective provider.
After they have been activated, the plugins also collect personal data, such as your IP address, and send it to the servers of the respective providers, where it is then stored. In addition, activated social plugins set a cookie with a unique identifier when the web page in question is viewed. As a result, the providers can also create profiles of your user behavior. This occurs even if you are not a member of the social network of the respective provider. If you are a member of the provider’s social network, and if you are logged into the social network at the time you visit this website, your data and information pertaining to your visit to this website can be linked to your profile on the social network. We have no say regarding the exact scope of the data pertaining to you that the respective provider collects. Additional information regarding the scope, type, and purpose of data processing, and regarding the rights and setting options to protect your data privacy, can be found in the data privacy statements of the respective social network providers.
