These data cannot be assigned to specific persons. A consolidation of this data with other data sources is not carried out. We reserve the right to check this data subsequently if we become aware of concrete indications of illegal use.
If the data should nevertheless allow conclusions to be drawn about a person, we will process this data, within the framework of our legitimate interest in the smooth operation of our website, as well as in the clarification of criminal offences, on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 (1) lif f. DSGVO

If you send us enquiries via 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 this data without your consent.
We process your data on the basis of the information provided by you by filling out and sending – clicking the Submit button – your data, given your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 (1) lit. a DSGVO. Your data will be stored until the purpose of processing – communication with you – ceases to apply and will be deleted when the communication process ends.

NEWSLETTER DATA
You can subscribe to a free newsletter on our website. When you register for the newsletter, the data from the input mask will be transmitted to us. In addition, the following data is collected during registration: IP address of the calling computer, date and time of registration. For the processing of the data, your consent will be obtained during the registration process and reference will be made to this privacy policy.

The collection of the user’s e-mail address is used to deliver the newsletter. The collection of other personal data during the registration process serves to prevent misuse of the services or the e-mail address used.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose of its collection. The user’s e-mail address is therefore stored as long as the subscription to the newsletter is active.

HOTJAR
We use the Hotjar website analytics service provided by Hotjar Ltd (Level 2, St Julians Business Centre, 3, Elia Zammit Street, St Julians STJ 1000, Malta, Europe Tel: +1 (855) 464-6788) on this website. This allows movements on the website to be tracked (heat maps). For example, it is possible to see how far users scroll and which buttons are clicked on how often. Furthermore, the tool also enables feedback to be obtained directly from users of the website. In this way, we obtain valuable information to make our websites even faster and more customer-friendly.
The above analysis is based on our legitimate interests for optimisation and marketing purposes and the design of our website in accordance with the interests of our customers in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 (1) lit. f. DSGVO.
When using this tool, we pay particular attention to the protection of your personal data. Thus we can only understand which buttons you click and how far they scroll. Areas of the websites in which personal data from you or third parties are displayed are automatically hidden by Hotjar, and can therefore not be traced at any time.
Hotjar offers every user the option of preventing the use of the Hotjar tool by means of a “Do Not Track” header, so that no data about the visit to the respective website is recorded. This is a setting that all common browsers support in current versions. To do this, your browser sends a request to Hotjar to deactivate the tracking of the respective user. If you use our website with different browsers/computers, you must set up the “Do Not Track Header” separately for each of these browsers/computers.

USE OF SOCIAL MEDIA PLUGINS
We currently use the following social media plug-ins: Facebook. Twitter, LinkedIN and Xing.
We use the so-called two-click solution. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the plug-ins. You can recognize the provider of the plugin by the initial letter or the logo on the box. We give you the opportunity to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only if you click on the marked box and thereby activate it, the plug-in provider will receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online offer.
Data is also transmitted to the respective plug-in provider. These are usually: If you are not logged out, your respective user data (Facebook profile, Twitter profile, etc.), information about the browser type and version used, the user’s operating system, information about the user’s Internet service provider, the user’s IP address, date and time of access, websites from which the user’s system accesses our website, websites which are called up by the user’s system via our website.
In the case of Facebook and Xing, the IP address is anonymized immediately after it is collected, according to the respective providers in Germany. By activating the plug-in, therefore, personal data is transmitted from you to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (in the case of US providers in the USA). Since the plug-in provider collects data in particular via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies via your browser’s security settings before clicking on the grayed-out box.
We have no influence on the collected data and data processing procedures, nor are we aware of the full scope of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We also have no information on the deletion of the collected data by the plug-in provider.
The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the purpose of presenting need-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right of objection to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider in order to exercise this right. Through the plug-ins we offer you the possibility to interact with the social networks and other users, so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art.6 Abs.1 S.1 lit. f DSGVO.
The data is passed on regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, your data collected by us will be assigned directly to your account with the plug-in provider. If you click on the activated button and, for example, link to the page, the plug-in provider will also save this information in your user account and share it publicly with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as you can then avoid being assigned to your profile with the plug-in provider.
For further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the following data protection declarations of these providers. There you will also find further information on your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy.
