Data processing on our website

General Information

When you visit our website a variety of data from you will be processed, in order to analyse and improve the use of our information supply, and to detect and rectify possible weak points.

When you visit our website, information is collected and saved in so-called server log files which your browser transfers to us automatically. These are: Browser type and browser version, operating system used, referrer URL (original website, via which the user has come to our website and/or file), host name of the accessing computer, time of the server request and the IP address.

This data is processed on the servers of our internet service provider. This data will not be combined with other data sources. This processing activity is not used as a basis for automated decision making (profiling). We reserve the right to check this data afterwards, if we become aware of concrete indications of illegal use.

The legal basis for the data processing is our justified interest in weighing up all risks (see point (f) of Art. 6(1) GDPR). Our interest in this is: Increasing the public profile of our company, advertising on our account, information about our range of services and support for the initiation of business contacts through publication of suitable contact possibilities for interested parties and business partners, improvement of the user-friendliness of our range of information.

The storage period is one year.

SSL and/or TLS encryption

For security reasons and in order to protect confidential content such as orders or enquiries you send to us as website operator, this website uses SSL and/or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the address line in the browser changing from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in the browser line.

If the SSL and/or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you transfer to us cannot be accessed by third parties.

Cookies

Some of the websites use cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve the purpose of making our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer and stored by your browser.

Most of the cookies used by us are so-called “session cookies”. These are deleted automatically at the end of your visit. Other cookies are stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser during your next visit to our site.

You can set your browser to inform you when cookies are being placed and to only allow cookies on a case-by-case basis, to refuse cookies in certain cases or in general, and to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when you close the browser. Deactivating cookies may limit the full functionality of this website.

Cookies that are required for execution of the electronic communication process or for provision of certain features requested by you (e.g. shopping cart feature) are saved based on Art. 6(1) point (f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically smooth and optimised provision of their services. Where other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysis of your browsing behaviour) are stored, these are addressed separately in this data privacy notice.

  • host name of the computer used for access
  • time of the server query
  • IP address

This data is not combined with other data sources.

The data processing is based on Art. 6(1) point (f) of the GDPR, which allows the processing of data for our legitimate interests as controller.

Matomo statistics (formerly Piwik)

We use Matomo (formerly: “PIWIK”) in our internet presence. This is a piece of open-source software with which we can analyse the use of our internet presence. Here your IP address, the website(s) of our internet presence that you visit, the website from which you have changed over to our internet presence (referrer URL), the amount of time you have spent on our internet presence, and the frequency of the calling of one of our websites are processed.

Matomo saves a cookie on your terminal via your internet browser to collect this data. This cookie is valid for a week.

The legal basis is point (f) of Art. 6(1) GDPR. Our justified interest lies in the analysis and optimising of our internet presence.

However, we use Matomo with the anonymization function “Automatically Anonymize Visitor IPs”. This function shortens your IP address by two bytes, making it impossible to trace the information to you and/or to the internet connection that you use.

If you do not consent to this processing, you have the option to prevent the saving of the cookie by making a setting in your internet browser. You can find more detailed information on this above under “cookies”.

In addition to this, you have the option to end the analysis of your usage behaviour by means of the so-called opt-out. By confirming the following link, a cookie is saved on your terminal via your internet browser, which prevents further analysis. Please note, however, that you must click on the link again if you delete the cookies saved on your terminal.

Data Processing in Our Social Networks

General Information

We maintain publicly accessible profiles in social networks. You can find the social networks used by us in detail further below.

Social networks like Facebook, Twitter etc. can normally analyse your user behaviour comprehensively if you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. like buttons or advertising banners). Numerous processing procedures relevant to data protection are triggered by visiting our social media presences. Specifically:

If you are logged into your social media account and visit our social media presence, the operator of the social media portal can associate this visit with your user account. Your personal data can, under certain circumstances, also be collected even if you are not logged in or do not possess an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, the data collection takes place e.g. via cookies that are saved on your terminal or by saving your IP address.

By means of the data collected in this way, the operators of the social media portals can produce user profiles in which your preferences and interests are recorded. In this way, interest-related advertising can be displayed to you inside and outside the respective social media presence. If you possess an account with the respective social network, the interest-related advertising can be displayed on all devices on which you are or have been logged in.

Please also note that we cannot trace all processing on the social media portals. Depending on the provider, it may possibly be the case that further processing is carried out by the operators of the social media portals. You can find details on this in the conditions of use and data protection regulations of the respective social media portals.

Legal Basis

Our social media appearances are intended to ensure the most comprehensive possible presence on the internet. This is a justified interest within the meaning of point (f) of Art. 6(1) GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may possibly be based on different legal bases which are to be stated by the operators of the social networks (e.g. consent within the meaning of point (a) of Art. 6(1) GDPR).

Person Responsible and Exercising of Rights

If you visit one of our social media presences (e.g. Facebook), we, together with the operator of the social media platform, are responsible for the data processing processes triggered by this visit. You can always exercise your rights (information, rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, data portability and complaint) both towards us and towards the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. towards Facebook).

Please be aware that, despite the responsibility shared with the social media portal operators, we do not have comprehensive influence on the data processing processes of the social media portals. Our options are decisively determined by the company policy of the respective provider.

Storage Period

The data directly collected by us via the social media presence is deleted by our systems as soon as the reason for its storage no longer applies, you request that we erase it, or you withdraw your consent to its storage. Saved cookies remain on your terminal until you delete them. Compelling legal provisions - esp. retention periods - remain unaffected.

We have no influence on the storage duration of your data that is saved by the operators of the social networks for their own purposes. For details on this, please turn directly to the operators of the social networks (e.g. in their data protection statements, see below).
