Web fonts are used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the sense of Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. f GDPR.

9. Social Media Plugins

Social plugins from the providers listed below are used on our websites. You can recognize the plugins by the fact that they are marked with the corresponding logo.

Via these plugins, information which may also include personal data might be sent to the service provider and may be used by him if required.  We prevent the unconscious and unintentional collection and transfer of data to the service provider by a 2-click solution. To activate a desired social plugin, it first has to be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. Only this activation of the plugin will trigger the collection of information and its transfer to the service provider. We do not collect any personal data ourselves by means of the social plugins or via their use.

We have no influence on which data an activated plugin collects and how this data will be used by the provider. Currently, it must be assumed that a direct connection to the provider’s services will be established and that at least the IP address and device-related information will be collected and used. There is also the possibility that the service providers try to store cookies on the used computer. Please refer to the data privacy information of the respective service provider to find out which specific data is collected and how it is used.

11. Visitor Statistics

Our system-based visitor analysis tool does not store raw data and evaluate it later: The necessary evaluations are executed immediately. Therefore the finished statistical data is stored with the exception of the IP address. Thus, the goal of data avoidance and data minimization is achieved in the best possible way.

11.1 IP-Address
Only the IP address is used to recognize different visitors, no JavaScript, no cookies.

11.2 Browser Agent and Referrer
The browser agent and the referrer are read for additional statistics. Both readouts are stored independently and separately from the IP address and can therefore also not be associated. (pure count)

11.3 Data Storage
The IP address of the visitor is not stored. With the exception of the detection of bots/crawlers/spiders, the IP address is also not used for further analysis purposes. A pseudonym in the form of a hash value is generated from the IP address and other internal data. This hash value is not associated with any other statistical evaluation.

11.4 Browser Agent and Referrer
For the browser agent, the combinations of browser, language, operating system are stored with a count. For the referrer, the URL with count and time stamp of the last occurrence is stored without establishing a connection to the IP address or to the browser agent.

12. TLS Encryption (https://)

We protect the transmission of your data with a secure (AES 256 bit) TLS connection. TLS (Transport Layer Security) is a security technology ensuring that your personal data is transferred securely over the internet and cannot be viewed by third parties. You can recognize TLS encryption by the fact that the URL starts with “https” instead of “http”. The following data is encrypted: Personal data (name, address and other information transmitted via the contact forms).

13. Your Rights, Information

You have the right to obtain information about your personal data stored by us at any time. You also have the right to have your personal data corrected, blocked or, apart from the mandatory data storage for business processing, deleted. Please contact our data protection officer for this purpose. You will find the contact details at the very bottom.

To ensure that a block on data can be respected at any time, this data must be stored in a blocking file for control purposes. You can also request the deletion of data unless there is a legal archiving obligation. If such an obligation exists, we will block your data upon request.

You can make changes or withdraw consent with effect for the future by notifying us accordingly.

For any questions with regard to the collection, processing or use of your personal data or if you would like to request information about or correct, block or delete data, please contact us by e-mail at:
