These cookies are set as so-called first-party cookies ("own cookies") or third-party cookies ("third-party cookies")
>First-party cookies are set by the website you are currently visiting and are not made available by browsers across domains.
A third-party cookie, on the other hand, is set by a third party, i.e. not by the actual website you are currently on.
The cookies are further divided into technically necessary and technically not necessary cookies.
On our website both technically necessary cookies and technically not necessary cookies are set according to the following paragraphs.
Technically necessary cookies
Technically necessary cookies are mandatory for the operation of our website and, for example, make certain functions possible for you in the first place.
These technically necessary cookies, which are only required and set for the individual necessary online session, are automatically deleted after leaving our website.
The legal basis for the use of these technically necessary cookies is Art. 6 Par. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
Technically not necessary cookies
If you have given your consent, we use so-called technically not necessary cookies on our website.
The technically not necessary cookies are mainly used to evaluate the use of the website as well as user behaviour, to compile reports on the activities of the visitors on the website and to provide further services connected with the use of the website.
The cookies used by us that are not technically necessary are explained in our cookie banner with regard to their function, duration and possible third party recipients of the data
If certain third party providers used by us set cookies within the scope of the service provided for us, this is additionally pointed out separately in our data protection declaration.
You can withdraw your consent at any time. Furthermore, you have the possibility to configure the setting of cookies at any time.
Java-Applets and Java-Script are used for the provision of our internet offer.
If you do not wish to use these auxiliary programs or active contents for security reasons, you should deactivate the corresponding setting of your browser.
6. google reCAPTCHA
In order to protect your requests via contact form, we use the service reCAPTCHA from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google").
The query serves to distinguish whether the input is made by a human being or abusively by automated, machine processing.
The query includes the sending of the IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google and is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in determining individual responsibility on the Internet and the avoidance of spam and abuse.
This data is processed by Google within the European Union and, if applicable, also in the USA.
For data processing in the U.S., Google has certified itself under the U.S./E.U. Privacy Shield Agreement and is thus committed to complying with European data protection regulations.
7. online marketing/ analysis measures
If you have given your consent, we use Matomo (formerly Piwik) for web analysis, a service of InnoCraft Ltd., 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand, NZBN 6106769.
We have additionally configured Matomo so that your IP address is only recorded in abbreviated form.
We therefore process your personal usage data anonymously. A conclusion on your person is not possible for us.
You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. The revocation is e.g. possible in the following by mouse click.
By clicking on the box below, a so-called opt-out cookie is stored in your browser, which means that Matomo no longer collects any session data.
8. integration of YouTube
Videos about YouTube LLC , 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, represented by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, are included on our website.
The videos are stored at www.youtube.com and can be played directly from our website. Our website thus enables you to connect to YouTube. Normally, when you visit a website with embedded videos, your IP address is sent to YouTube and cookies are installed on your computer.
However, we have embedded the YouTube videos on our website with the "extended privacy mode". YouTube itself provides this extended data protection mode and ensures that no cookies are initially stored on your end device.
However, when you access the website in question in "extended data protection mode", a connection to the "DoubleClick" network of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, is established and your IP address is transmitted.
In particular, this informs us that you have visited our website. However, this data cannot be assigned to you specifically, unless you have registered or are still registered with YouTube or another Google service before visiting the website. When you click to start playing an embedded video, YouTube's enhanced privacy mode only stores cookies on your device that do not contain any personally identifiable information unless you are currently signed in to a Google service.
These cookies can be prevented by appropriate browser settings and extensions. We have no knowledge of or influence on the possible collection and use of your data by YouTube.
9. links to our internet presence in social networks
On our website we have included links to our websites in the social networks (Twitter, LinkedIN and Youtube)
We would like to point out that these are only links that lead to our website in the mentioned networks, they are not so-called plugins with which you could, for example, "share" or "link" information on our website in the networks.
As far as we are aware, it is technically not possible for social networks to collect personal data on our website via the mere links.
For the purpose and scope of data collection after forwarding, please refer to the data protection information of the respective network.
We would like to point out that data of our website visitors may also be processed outside the European Union. This can result in risks for the users, because the enforcement of the users' rights could be made more difficult. With regard to US providers certified under the Privacy Shield, we would like to point out that they have undertaken to comply with the data protection standards of the EU.
It is possible that user data may be processed by third parties for market research and advertising purposes. For example, user profiles can be created from the user behaviour and the resulting interests of the users. The user profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements within and outside of the social networks that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the users' computers, in which the usage behaviour and interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, data can also be stored in the user profiles independently of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective social network and are logged in to it).
For a detailed presentation of the respective processing we refer to the following linked information of the respective providers. Also in the case of requests for information or the assertion of your rights as a data subject, we would like to point out that these can be asserted most effectively with social networks. Only these have access to the data of their users and can take appropriate measures and provide information directly. Should you nevertheless require assistance, please contact us.
10. data security
We make every effort to take all necessary technical and organisational security measures to store your personal data in such a way that they are not accessible to third parties or the public.
If you wish to contact us by e-mail, we would like to point out that the confidentiality of the transmitted information cannot be completely guaranteed with this method of communication.
We therefore recommend that you send us confidential information exclusively by post.
