User data collected in this way will be pseudonymised by means of technical procedures. This makes it impossible to associate data with a visiting user. Data are not stored with other personal data of users.
For each visit to our website, our system automatically collects data and information about the computer system of the visiting computer.
The following data are collected:
These data will only be stored in the webserver logfiles (“access log”). It is impossible to associate the data with a particular user. There is no storage of these data together with other personal data of the user.
To increase efficiency, on our website we use the services of Google Analytics, a Web analysis service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “Cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and enable analysis of your use of the website. Information about your use of the website (including your IP address) that is created by means of the cookie is transmitted to a server in the US and stored there. To protect the interests of users regarding protection of their personal data, this is done by anonymising the data, meaning that your IP address will be unrecognisable when passed on to Google.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by means of a corresponding setting on your browser software; however, we draw your attention to the fact that, in this case, you might not be able to use all of the functions of this website to the full extent. Furthermore, you can prevent transmission of data created by the cookie and referring to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google as well as the processing of these data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
The following data are collected during the registration process:
This website uses social plug-ins (“plug-ins”) of the facebook.com social network, operated by Facebook Inc., CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plug-ins can be recognised by the Facebook logo (white “f” on blue background or a “thumbs-up” sign), or are labelled with the endorsement “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list of and appearance of Facebook social plug-ins can be viewed here: developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins.
If you access a website that is part of our Internet presence and contains such a plug-in, your browser makes a direct connection to Facebook servers. The plug-in content is passed by Facebook directly to your browser, which embeds it in the website. We therefore have no influence over the scope of data collected by Facebook with the aid of this plug-in and consequently offer the information below according to our state of knowledge
As a result of integration of the plug-ins, Facebook receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our Internet presence. If you are logged into Facebook, it is possible for Facebook to link your visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plug-ins, for example by clicking the Like button or adding a comment, the corresponding information is passed from your browser directly to Facebook and stored there. If you are not a Facebook member, it is nevertheless possible that Facebook determines and stores your IP address.
For details of the purpose and scope of data collection and subsequent processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your rights in this connection and options for settings to protect your privacy, please consult Facebook’s data protection information on: www.facebook.com/policy.php.
If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to collect data about you via our Internet presence and link them with your membership data stored at Facebook, you have to log out of Facebook before visiting our Internet presence.
It is also possible to block Facebook social plug-ins using add-ons for your browser, with Facebook Blocker for example.
It is possible to subscribe to our newsletter on our website. Before you regularly receive our newsletters, we will send you a confirmation e-mail (double opt-in).
In connection with data processing for the despatch of newsletters, the data you provide are passed on to our newsletter provider “Mailchimp”, operated by The Rocket Science Group, LLC with headquarters in Atlanta, USA. In this context, we have concluded a processing contract in accordance with Art 28 GDPR. Your data are used exclusively for dispatching newsletters.
Use of Bloomreach Engagement/Exponea
We use the Bloomreach Engagement/Exponea service to send and manage our newsletters; we have concluded an order processing agreement with this provider.
Our newsletters sent with Bloomreach Engagement/Exponea allow us to analyse the behaviour of newsletter recipients. Among other things, this allows us to analyse how many recipients have opened the newsletter message and how often a certain link in the newsletter has been clicked. With the help of so-called conversion tracking, we can also analyse whether a predefined action (e.g. purchase of a product on our website) has taken place after clicking the link in the newsletter.
The legal basis for this data processing is your consent pursuant to Article 6 (1) a) of the GDPR.
Insofar as we are entitled to process your personal data for a specific purpose on the basis of your consent, we will delete this data immediately if you withdraw your consent.
Subject to your consent, this website also uses “Custom Audiences from customer lists” of Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA.
Using these, Facebook can target our advertisements at newsletter subscribers who are registered with Facebook. As a result we are able to run targeted advertising for people who have already expressed their interest in our products or our company. These data are passed to Facebook hashed and encrypted. Facebook compares the hash values on the customer list with the hash values of its own stored user data. Facebook then checks the matching data for instances of persons who have not yet liked our Facebook page and delivers our adverts to these Facebook users. You can get more information about the collection and use of the data, the purpose and scope of data collection and further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as your options for settings to protect your privacy and rights, from Facebook’s data protection guidelines, accessible via https://www.facebook.com/ads/website_custom_audiences/ and https://www.facebook.com/privacy/explanation among other links.

We include third-party content and services in our online provision on the basis of our justified interests (i.e. interests in the analysis, optimisation and commercial operation of our online provision in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR), in order to include their content and services, such as maps and fonts (hereafter summarised as “content”). This always requires that the third-party-providers of this content have access to the users’ IP addresses, because without the IP addresses they would not be able to send the content to the users’ browsers. So the IP address is necessary in order to display this content. We take care only to use content whose corresponding providers use the IP address solely for the delivery of content. Furthermore, third-party providers can use so-called pixel-tags (invisible graphics, also called “web beacons”) for statistical marketing purposes. “Pixel-tags” can be used to collect information such as visitor traffic to the pages of a particular website. Such pseudonymous information can also be stored in cookies on users’ devices, containing technical information such as browser and operating system, referring websites, time of visit and other data about use of our online provision, which are also linked to such information from other sources.
The following description offers an overview of third-party providers and their content, along with links to their data protection declarations, which contain further information about the processing of data and possibilities to object (so-called “opt-out”) mentioned to some extent already:
