Privacy Policy

2.1 Cookie-Consent-Tool by CookiePro by OneTrust

When visiting our website for the first time, you will be shown a banner by CookiePro by OneTrust with a cookie consent text. If you provide consent here or in our cookie settings, said consent will be stored in your browser via a selection cookie. This way, we do not have to display this notice every time you visit any page. If said reference is no longer preserved in your browser (e.g. after deleting the browsing history), this notice will once again be displayed when revisiting our website. In this context, the collected data will not be passed on to the provider of CookiePro and only exist until you erase the selection cookie yourself, or until the original purpose for data storage no longer applies. Any mandatory statutory retention periods remain unaffected. CookiePro Consent technology is used to obtain the statutory consents for the use of cookies. The legal basis is Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR.

3. Website optimisation with Econda

To design our website tailored to needs and for the optimisation of this website, solutions and technologies from econda GmbH, Zimmerstr. 6, 76137 Karlsruhe, Germany, collect and store pseudonymised data and use this data to create usage profiles from pseudonyms created.

Econda anonymises the data when it is recorded by truncating the IP address, meaning that it is not possible to assign it to a specific user when used according to its intended purpose. The anonymised data remains on the econda servers and can only be accessed there by us. This aggregated data enables us to analyse visitor flows and click paths, for example, without being able to assign them to a specific user. The servers are exclusively located in Germany.

Cookies which enable a browser to be recognised again may be used for this purpose. See Section 4 in this regard. However, user profiles are not compiled with data of the person behind the pseudonym without the express permission of the visitor. IP addresses in particular are made unrecognisable immediately after the user has accessed the website, making it impossible to assign user profiles to IP addresses. Visitors to this website can object to the recording and storage of this data for the future at any time in the Cookie Settings.

The data is stored for a period of ten (10) years.

4. Security

Both we and our service providers take the necessary technical and organisational security precautions to protect personal data under our control against both accidental and intentional manipulation, loss, and destruction, as well as against access by unauthorised parties. Our data processes and security measures are continuously improved to keep up with technological advancements.

Personal data that is exchanged between you and us or other involved companies is generally transmitted via encrypted connections that correspond with the state-of-the-art.

Our employees and any commissioned service providers are – of course – bound to confidentiality.



5. Links to other Internet websites

Our website contains links to other Internet websites. We have no influence over operators of these websites complying with data protection regulations, including the GDPR. Even after carefully reviewing the content, we can not assume any liability for external links to third-party content, either. For more information on the data processing procedures on these pages, we kindly ask you to review the data protection information on the respective websites.



6. Your rights

Every natural person whose personal data we process generally (i.e. depending on the circumstances) has the following rights towards us:

  • If you have any questions about the ways in which we process your personal data, we would be happy to provide you with information about your personal data we store, free of charge and at any time (Article 15 GDPR, possibly with the restrictions under Sec. 34 German Federal Data Protection Act [Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, BDSG] applying).
  • You have the right to rectification of incorrect and completion of incomplete data (Article 16 GDPR).
  • You have a right to the blocking/restriction of processing or erasure of any of your personal data that is no longer required or was stored to comply with statutory obligations (Articles 17 and 18 GDPR).

In other words, the lawfulness of data processing up to the time of withdrawal shall remain unaffected. After withdrawing your consent, you may no longer be able to use our services.

You additionally have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority (Article 77 GDPR). We do, however, recommend you first direct your complaint to us.

7. Retention obligations

If you no longer use our services and send us an erasure request, we will erase all your personal data, with the exception of some categories of data required for us to fulfil our statutory retention obligations.

The statutory retention periods vary between six (6) and ten (10) years.
