Cookies

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that are temporarily stored on the hard drive of the user of the website/customer. If the user of the website/customer accesses the same server again, the browser of the user of the website/customer sends the previously received cookie back to the server. The server can then make use of the information received as part of this procedure in various ways. Cookies can, for example, be used to select what ads appear or they can ease navigation on a website. If the user of the website/customer would like to prevent the use of cookies, this can be done locally by making changes to the settings of the browser on the computer being used to access the website (e.g. Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, Opera or Safari).

You can set up your browser so that you are alerted to attempts to store cookies, and you can then choose to allow this once, to block cookies from some sources or to block all cookies. You can moreover elect to activate automatic deletion of all cookies whenever you close your browser. Deactivating cookies for this website may negatively impact website functionality.

Server-Log-Files

The provider of this website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files – this information is automatically passed on to us by your browser. This includes the following:

Browser type and version

Operating system being used

Referrer URL

Hostname of the accessing computer

Time of the server request

This data cannot be assigned to specific persons. This data will not be merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to subsequently check this data if we become aware of concrete indications of illegal use.

Newsletter

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, you will need to provide us with your e-mail address as well as confirmation that you are the owner of the respective e-mail address and would like to receive the newsletter. No additional data is collected, and we use this data only to send the requested information. This data is not shared with third parties.

We use Klaviyo, a service for our email marketing, on our website. The service provider is the American company Klaviyo, 125 Summer St, Boston, MA 02110, USA.

Klaviyo also processes your data in the USA, among other places. We would like to point out that, according to the European Court of Justice, there is currently no adequate level of protection for data transfer to the USA. This can pose various risks to the lawfulness and security of data processing.

As the basis for data processing for recipients based in third countries (outside the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, especially in the USA) or for data transfer there, Klaviyo uses so-called standard contractual clauses (= Article 46, Paragraphs 2 and 3 of the GDPR). Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) are templates provided by the EU Commission and are intended to ensure that your data complies with European data protection standards even if it is transferred to third countries (such as the USA) and stored there. Through these clauses, Klaviyo undertakes to comply with European data protection standards when processing your relevant data, even if the data is stored, processed and managed in the USA. These clauses are based on an implementing decision of the EU Commission. You can find the resolution and the corresponding standard contractual clauses here: https://eur-lex.europa.eu/eli/dec_impl/2021/914/oj?locale=de

IP anonymisation

This means that if you are located in a member state of the European Union or another country which is in the EEC, Google will shorten your IP address before transmission to the US. In rare cases, the full IP address is transmitted to a Google server that is located in the US and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this website in order to compile reports about website activity and to provide other website services to the operator of this website in relation to website and internet use. The IP address that is transmitted to Google will not be merged with other data from Google.

We use plugins provided by the Facebook social network on our website, i.e. Facebook Inc.

This results in the relaying of information to the Facebook servers about which of our web pages you visited. If you are a member of Facebook and you are logged into Facebook, Facebook assigns this information to your personal Facebook user account.

When you make use of a function provided by the plugin, for example if you click the “Like” button or submit a comment, this information will also be assigned to your Facebook user account if you do not log out of your Facebook account prior to using the plugin functionality.

We use a plugin provided by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, a subsidiary of the Google corporation.

When a video is accessed, data is transmitted to YouTube (i.e. Google). Cookies like the Doubleclick cookie are also requested along with the video. In order to minimise the amount of data that is transmitted to Google, we use the expanded data protection mode provided by YouTube. Moreover, we have implemented a two-click solution, wherein the videos are first loaded only after you activate them via a link. In this way, data is only transmitted if you actually watch a video and have confirmed that you consent to the transmission of data.

You can recognize when an encrypted connection is being used by checking the web address in your browser: addresses that are proceeded by “http://” are not encrypted, while web addresses that start with “https://” are encrypted – you’ll also see a lock symbol in the URL window of the browser.

When SSL encryption is activated, the data that your are transmitting cannot be accessed by third parties.
