  3. Google Analytics

    If you have given your consent, this website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google LLC. The responsible service provider in the EU is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google").

    Scope of the processing

    Google Analytics uses cookies that enable an analysis of your use of our website. The information collected by the cookies about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

    We use the function 'anonymizeIP' (so-called IP-Masking): Due to the activation of IP-anonymization on this website, your IP-address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address will be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser to Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google.

    During your visit of the website, the following data is recorded:

    • the pages you call up, your "click path”
    • your user behavior (for example: clicks, time spent etc.)
    • your approximate location (region)
    • your IP address (in shortened form)
    • technical information about your browser and the devices you use (e.g. language settings, screen resolution)
    • your internet provider
    • the referrer URL (via which website/advertising medium you came to this website)

    Purposes of processing

    On behalf of the controller of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website and to compile reports on website activity. The reports provided by Google Analytics serve to analyze the performance of our website and the success of our marketing campaigns.

    Recipient

    The recipient of the data is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland as a processor. For this purpose we have concluded a data processing agreement with Google.

    Transfer to third countries

    A transfer of data to the USA cannot be excluded. The possible transfer of data to the USA may lead to the possibility that authorities in the USA will gain access to this data.

    Duration of data storage

    The data sent by us and linked to cookies is automatically deleted after 14 months. Data of which the retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month.

    You can block the collecting of data by Google Analytics:

    You can also prevent the storage of cookies by changing your browser settings. However, if you configure your browser to refuse all cookies, this may limit the functionality of this and other websites.

  4. Google reCAPTCHA

    We use "Google reCAPTCHA" on our website. This service is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). reCAPTCHA is used to check whether the data entered on our website (such as on a contact form) has been entered by a human or by an automated program. To do this, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website.

    For the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, how long the visitor has been on the website, or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis will be forwarded to Google. The reCAPTCHA analyses take place completely in the background. Website visitors are not advised that such an analysis is taking place.

    Data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its website from abusive automated crawling and spam.

    An external service provider hosts this website. The personal data collected on this website is stored on the service provider's servers. We use this external service provider to ensure a secure, fast and efficient provision of our website (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). Our external service provider will only process your data to the extent necessary to fulfil its contractual obligations with us and will follow our instructions with regard to personal data on this website.

    Data we collect may be transferred to, stored and processed in other countries or territory where one or more of our offices or service providers are based or have facilities. While other countries or territories may not have the same standards of data protection as those in your home country, we will continue to protect personal data that we transfer in line with this privacy policy.

    Whenever we transfer your personal data to service providers out of the European Union (EU)/ European Economic Area (EEA), we ensure similar protection and put in place at least one of these safeguards:

    • We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been found to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data.
    • We use contracts that use Standard Contractual Clauses for the protection of personal data .These contracts give your personal data the same protection it has in the EU/EEA.

    Duration of data storage

    Unless expressly stated in this data privacy policy, your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for storing them no longer applies, unless their further storage is necessary for evidential purposes or is opposed by statutory storage obligations.

    Obligation to provide personal data

    The provision of the aforementioned personal data is required neither statutory nor contractual. Without your personal data, however, the service and functionality of our website cannot be guaranteed. In addition, some services may not be available or may be restricted.
