When you contact us for example by telephone, email, completing the contact form available on our website, comments or messages on our online social media accounts, we process the personal data that you provide and, in particular, your name, address, email address, telephone number for the purposes of processing and responding to the contact query.

(1) 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”).
(2) Scope of processing Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, text files that are stored on your computer and that allow your use of the website to be analyzed. The information about your use of this website generated by the cookie is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We use the “demographic characteristics” function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be generated that contain information about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data originates from interest-based advertising by Google as well as visitor data from third parties. This data cannot be assigned to any particular person. We use the function “anonymizeIP” (so-called IP-Masking). Activation of IP anonymization on this website means that your IP address will first be abbreviated by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other signatory states of the agreement through the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional circumstances will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. The IP address transferred by your browser within the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google. Among other data, the following pieces of information are collected during your website visit:
- The pages that you call up, i.e. your “click path”
- Achievement of “website goals” (conversions, e.g. newsletter subscriptions, downloads, sales)
- Your user behavior (e.g. clicks, dwell time, bounce rate)
- Your approximate location (region)
- Your IP address (in abbreviated form)
- Technical information about your browser and the device used by you (e.g. language setting, screen resolution)
- Your Internet service provider
- The referrer URL (the website or advertising medium via which you arrived at this website)
(3) Purpose of the data processing Google uses this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our website by users, to compile reports about activities within this website and to provide us with further services related to the use of this website and Internet usage.
(4) Recipient The recipient of the data and processor of the order is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. We have signed an order processing agreement for this purpose with Google. Google LLC, with headquarters in California, USA, and, where appropriate, US authorities may access the data stored by Google.
(5) Transfer to third countries A transfer of data in the USA cannot be ruled out.
(6) Storage period The data sent by us and linked to cookies will be deleted automatically after 14 months. Data that has reached the end of its storage limit is automatically deleted once a month. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google as well as the processing of such data by Google by a. not consenting to the setting of the cookie or b. downloading and installing the browser add-on here to deactivate Google Analytics. You can also prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly. However, if you configure your browser to refuse all cookies, this may lead to limited functionality on this and other websites.

We use “Google Web Fonts” from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland on our website. This allows us to use external fonts. Use in offline mode means that no data is transferred to Google as a third-party supplier.
This data protection declaration shall only apply to our own Internet presence. The web pages forming this presence may contain links to the web pages of third parties (e.g. social media). Our data protection declaration shall not extend to these web pages. We recommend that when you leave our web presence, you carefully read the data protection guidelines of every web page that gathers personal data.
We maintain online social media presences in order to communicate with customers, interested parties and users who are active there and to be able to inform them about our services. The terms of business and data protection guidelines of the relevant operator shall apply to interactions via such networks or platforms.
Unless something to the contrary is stated in our data protection declaration, we process the data of users provided that they communicate with us via social media, for example, post on our online presences or send us messages.

(1) We have also integrated YouTube videos of the third-party supplier Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, in our online offer.

These videos are all covered by the “expanded data protection mode”, which means that no information about you as the user will be transferred to YouTube if you do not play the videos or have not previously given your consent for this. Only once you have given consent will the data specified in the following be transferred. We have no control over the resulting data transfers.
(2) Visiting the website provides YouTube with the information that you have accessed the relevant page on our website. In addition, the data detailed in § 3 of this policy is made available to them.

If you do not want your YouTube profile to be associated in this way, you must first log out before activating the button. This also establishes a connection with the Google DoubleClick network. If you start the video this might result in further data processing actions.
(3) YouTube stores your data as a user profile and uses it for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the tailored management of its website. Such analysis is completed (even for users who are not logged in) to deliver targeted advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of such user profiles by contacting YouTube.
(4) The legal basis for the playing of YouTube videos is the granting of your consent in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
We use the LinkedIn Sales Navigator of LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company to directly address and actively get in touch with contacts.

The website uses the tracking and remarketing function "Facebook Pixel" of Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Meta"). Users of the website can thus be shown interest-based advertisements when visiting the social network "Facebook" as well as websites that also use the procedure (including "Instagram"). In this way, we pursue the interest of displaying relevant advertising to you in order to make your visit to our website more interesting and use the data for marketing and targeting purposes. The pixel represents an analysis tool through which user behavior is tracked and linked to user data on Facebook. It is logged when certain actions are taken on our website. Such actions are, for example, adding an item to the shopping cart or completing a purchase. We do not have any influence on the other processing of the data that is collected by Facebook due to the use of the function. Due to the use of the function, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook server. This is not pseudonymized or anonymous user data. According to our knowledge, Facebook receives the information that you have accessed the subpage of our website or clicked on the ad. Facebook can assign this information to your account if you are registered with Facebook. If you are not registered or logged in, it is still possible that Facebook processes the IP address and other identifiers. For logged-in users, it is possible to deactivate the function at https://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=ads#_.
