3.1 Web analytics with Google Analytics

Due to our legitimate interests, this website uses for the optimization and analysis of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO the “Google Analytics” service offered by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). The service (Google Analytics) uses “cookies” – text files that are stored on your device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the US and stored there.

The IP address of the users is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area and in the other contracting states of the agreement. Only in individual cases, the IP address is first transferred unabridged to the United States to a Google server and shortened there. This reduction eliminates the personal reference of your IP address. The user’s IP address provided by the browser will not be combined with other data stored by Google.

As part of the agreement for the contract data agreement, which we have established as a website operator with Google Inc., it uses the information collected to compile an evaluation of website activity and website activity, and provides services related to the use of the internet.

The information collected by Google on our behalf will be used to evaluate the use of our online offering by individual users, e.g. to report on activity on the site to improve our online offering.

We’ve signed a contract data processing agreement with Google. Your Google Analytics user data is kept for a period of 26 months.


3.4 Cookie settings in the browser

You have the option to prevent the storage of cookies on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. There is no guarantee that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if your browser does not allow cookies.


3.5 Browser-Plugin

Furthermore, you can use a browser plug-in to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to Google Inc. and used by Google Inc. The following link leads you to the corresponding plugin: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

We also advertise presences on our website on the social networks listed below. The integration takes place via a linked graphic of the respective network. The use of this linked graphic prevents the call to a website that has a social media application from automatically connecting to the respective server of the social network in order to display a graphic of the respective network itself. Only by clicking on the corresponding graphic is the user forwarded to the service of the respective social network.

After the forwarding of the user, information about the user is recorded by the respective network. It can not be ruled out that processing of the data collected in this way takes place in the USA.

These are initially data such as IP address, date, time and page visited. If the user is meanwhile logged into his user account of the respective network, the network operator may possibly assign the collected information of the specific visit of the user to the personal account of the user. If the user interacts via a “share” button of the respective network, this information can be stored in the user’s personal user account and possibly published. If the user wants to prevent the collected information from being directly assigned to his user account, he must log out before clicking on the graphic. It is also possible to configure the respective user account accordingly.


The following social networks are integrated in our site by linking:

Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If the user has been deactivated at the domain or cookie level, this will remain the same for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.


5.2 Google Maps

To help us find our way around, we’ve integrated Google Maps maps from Google LLC into our website via an API.

The security of the transmission is ensured by so-called standard contractual clauses, which guarantee that the processing of personal data is subject to a level of security that corresponds to that of the DSGVO. If the standard contractual clauses are not sufficient to establish an adequate level of security, your consent pursuant to Art. 49 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO can serve as a legal basis for the transfer to third countries.

We use the HubSpot service to also provide online forms. For this purpose we forward your data to HubSpot, which processes the data exclusively on our behalf. See privacy policy of “HubSpot”.

The security of the transfer is regularly assured by so-called standard contractual clauses, which ensure that the processing of personal data is subject to a level of security equivalent to that provided for in the DSGVO. If the standard contractual clauses are not sufficient to establish an adequate level of security, your acknowledgement of the data protection declaration in the contact forms is deemed to constitute consent within the meaning of Art. 49 para. 1 lit.a DSGVO, which justifies a data transfer to unsafe third countries.
