Data privacy

Right of information and revocation

You have the right at any time to enquire free of charge and without delay about the personal data we have collected about you. You can also revoke your consent to the use of your personal data with effect for the future. To do so, please contact the service provider indicated in the imprint.


Data protection (general)

When you access our website, general information (so-called server log files) is automatically collected. These include the web browser you use, your operating system and your internet service provider. This data does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person and is statistically evaluated by us in order to improve our website technically and in terms of content. The collection of this information is necessary in order to be able to deliver the content of the website correctly.

The use of the website is generally possible without providing personal data. Insofar as personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected, this is always done on a voluntary basis as far as possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

If a contractual relationship is to be established, the content of which is to be developed or changed, or if you make an enquiry to us, we collect and use personal data from you insofar as this is necessary for this purpose (inventory data). We collect, process and use personal data to the extent necessary to enable you to use the website (usage data). All personal data is only stored for as long as is necessary for the stated purpose (processing your enquiry or handling a contract). In doing so, we take into account retention periods under tax and commercial law. By order of the competent authorities, we must provide information about this data (inventory data) in individual cases, insofar as this is necessary for the purposes of criminal prosecution, to avert danger, to fulfil the legal tasks of the constitution protection authorities or the Military Counter-Intelligence Service or to enforce intellectual property rights.

We expressly point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. It is not possible to provide complete protection against access to data.

The use of contact data published within the framework of the imprint obligation by third parties for the purpose of sending advertising and information material not expressly requested is hereby expressly prohibited. Excepted from this are existing business relationships or if we have given our consent to do so.

The providers and all third parties mentioned on this website expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information. The same applies to the commercial use and forwarding of data.


Data protection (comment function)

In the context of the comment function of our blog, we collect personal data (e.g. name, email) in the context of your comment on an article only to the extent that you have provided it to us. When publishing a comment, the email address you provide will be stored but not published. Your name will be published.

Privacy Policy Matomo (formerly PIWIK)

This website uses "Matomo" (formerly "Piwik"), a web analytics service provided by InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand (hereinafter referred to as: "InnoCraft"). Matomo uses cookies, i.e. small text files that are stored on your terminal device and enable an analysis of your use of our website. For this analysis, the cookies are stored on your computer. The information collected in this way is stored exclusively on our server. Our website uses Matomo with the extension "AnonymizeIP". This means that IP addresses are processed in a shortened form, which means that they cannot be directly linked to a person. The IP address transmitted by your browser via Matomo is not merged with other data collected by us.

We use Matomo to analyse the use of our website and to continuously improve individual functions and offers as well as the user experience. Through the statistical evaluation of user behaviour, we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. This is also our legitimate interest in the processing of the above data by the third-party provider. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

You can prevent the evaluation by deleting existing cookies and deactivating the storage of cookies in the settings of your web browser. Please note that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected.


Privacy policy YouTube

On the pages of our website, we integrate videos from "YouTube", a social media platform of Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as "Google"). When you call up a page in which a video from YouTube is embedded, data is transmitted to a Google server and stored there. If you have a user account with Google and are registered, Google can thereby assign the visit to your user account. Google stores this data as a user profile and uses it for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or tailoring its website to meet users' needs. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the display of needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles. Please contact Google directly for this purpose.

We integrate YouTube content on the pages of our website in order to make this content directly available to you without you having to call up the content separately on YouTube. This means that you can already use functions of the YouTube social media platform on our website. This allows us to improve our offer and the user experience for you and to make it more interesting. This is also our legitimate interest in the processing of the above data by the third-party provider. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

If you wish to prevent data transfer, you cannot use the YouTube functions. Regardless of this, we recommend that you regularly log out of your user account there after using a social network, but especially before activating embedded content, as this allows you to avoid an assignment to your profile with the respective provider.
