8. Rights of the person concerned
You have the following rights:
In order to constantly improve and optimize our offer we make use of so-called tracking technologies. Personal data usually will not be collected or only after anonymization or pseudonymization. We use the following applications or tools.
The relationship with the web analytics provider Google is based on the EU-US data protection agreement "Privacy Shield." US-based Google LLC is certified under the EU-US data protection agreement “Privacy Shield” and is committed to complying with EU privacy regulations.
Data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) (Consent) and/or Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) (legitimate interest) of the GDPR.
Our concern in regards to the GDPR (legitimate interest) is the improvement of our service and our website. Since the privacy of our users is important to us, the user data is anonymized or pseudonymized.
On the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR (legitimate interest), we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. With the tracking measures used, we want to ensure a design that is tailored to the needs and the on-going optimization of our website. In addition, we use the tracking measures to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our offerings.
Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online service in order to compile reports on the activities within this online service and to provide us with other services related to website activity and internet usage. This information may also be transferred to third parties if required by law, or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with any other data provided by Google.
We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymization activated. This will result in your IP address being truncated by Google prior to transmission within member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting the browser software accordingly. However, please note, that when doing so, it won’t be possible to fully use all features of the website.
You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including the IP address), as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in found at the following link:

Google AdWords Conversion Tracking
This website uses the online advertising program “Google AdWords” and as part of Google AdWords, the conversion tracking of Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). We use the Google AdWords service to bring awareness to our attractive offers through the help of advertising materials (so-called Google AdWords) on external websites. With the data obtained from these advertising campaigns, we can determine how successful each individual advertising campaign is. This helps us to pursue our goal of showing you advertisements that are of interest to you, making our website more interesting to you, and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs.
The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on a Google sponsored AdWords advertisement. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer system. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, we (as well as Google) can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked through AdWords advertisers' websites. The information gathered using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can block this usage by disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie through your Internet browser under User Preferences. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. We use Google AdWords based on our legitimate interest in targeted advertising pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
You can permanently deactivate ad specific cookies by adjusting your Browser’s software settings to block them or by downloading and installing the Browser Plug-in found at the following link: http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin?hl=en
Please note, that if you deactivate cookies, certain features of this site may not be usable or only usable to a limited extent.
We use the so-called “Facebook Pixel” of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA, to build so-called “Custom Audiences.” This serves to optimize our advertising on Facebook’s social network, to only post relevant ads, as well as to measure to the success of our Facebook advertising campaigns. With Facebook Pixel, it is possible for Facebook to identify visitors of our website as the target audience for the display of advertisement on Facebook’s social network.
Through the use of Facebook Pixel on our website, a direct connection is made to the Facebook server when visiting our website. Your visit to our website and the pages you have viewed are transmitted to the Facebook server. In addition, information and parameters are transmitted that are required for the optimization of our advertisements, the increase in relevance as well as for measuring their success. In particular, this is information about so-called “conversion-events” (ie., whether a registration or a purchase has been completed).
10. Social Networks
On the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR (legitimate interest) we place social plug-ins for the following social networks on our website
In order to increase awareness of our company. The underlying commercial purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the context of the GDPR. The responsibility for data protection compliant services is to be guaranteed by their respective provider.
Our website uses social media plug-ins from Facebook to make the user experience more personalized. For this we use the Facebook button. This is an offer from Facebook.
Facebook is a service of Facebook Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA.
When you visit a page of our website that contains such a plug-in, your browser connects directly to the Facebook servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser and integrated by the latter into the website.
By integrating the plug-in, Facebook receives the information that your Browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you don’t have a Facebook profile or are not currently logged in. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to the Facebook servers and stored there.
If you are logged in as a member of Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to your Facebook profile. When using plug-in functions (for example, pressing the "LIKE" button or leaving a comment), this information is also transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. The information will also be published on your Facebook profile and displayed to your Facebook friends.
Facebook may use this information for the purpose of advertising, market research and tailor-made Facebook pages. For this purpose, Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles, for example, to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the advertisements displayed on your Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website, and to further inform you about the use of Facebook related services.
If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to assign the data collected via our website to your Facebook profile, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.
11. Integration of services and contents of third parties
12. Data security
For security reasons, we use SSL or TLS encryption during a visit to the website. You can identify an encrypted connection by noticing the address bar of the browser changing from "http: //" to "https: //" and by the lock icon appearing in your browser bar.
13. Third countries
Data transfer to third countries takes place, but only in compliance with the statutory admissibility requirements. In particular, to fulfil our contract with you, we make certain data available to other users or third parties worldwide. For this, neither an adequacy decision pursuant to Art. 45 EU-GDPR nor an appropriate safeguard pursuant to Art. 46- EU-GDPR is required. If the transfer of the data to a third country does not serve the purpose of fulfilling our contract with you, we do not have your consent, the transfer is not required for asserting, exercising or defending any legal claim, and no other exceptions apply, we will only transfer your data to a third country if there is an adequacy decision pursuant to Art. 45 EU-GDPR, or an appropriate safeguard pursuant to Art. 46- EU-GDPR.
One of these adequacy decisions is the so-called "Privacy Shield" for the USA. For transfers to Privacy Shield certified companies, the level of data protection is generally considered appropriate i.S.v. Art. 45 EU GDPR. However, as a rule, we don’t rely on the Privacy Shield, we create appropriate safeguards pursuant to Art. 46 EU-GDPR as well as an adequate level of data protection, by completing the EU standard data protection clauses, adopted by the European Commission, with the receiving agency. Copies of the EU Standard data protection clauses can be found on the European Commission’s website: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection_en
