We automatically collect and store in our server log files information that your browser transmits to us. These are:
• Browser type/version
• Operating system used
• Referrer URL (the website previously visited)
• Host name of the accessing computer (IP address)
• Time of the server inquiry.
We cannot attribute this data to particular persons. A combination of this data with other data sources does not occur, the data is deleted after a statistical evaluation for the purpose of operation and security.
We collect your personal data if you provide us with your consent to do so. The data entered by you in our contact form (first name, last name, e-mail address, phone number) for processing your request or for initiating a commercial transaction is stored as long as it is necessary for processing. Afterwards, the data is deleted. No other storage or processing takes place.
The extent we use our contact form to request information that is not required to establish contact, we have always marked it as optional. These details serve us to further specify your inquiry and to improve the processing of your request. Providing this information takes place expressly on a voluntary basis and with your consent. If this involves information on communication channels (e.g. phone number), you also agree that we may contact you via this communication channel in order to respond to your request.
You can of course revoke your declarations of consent at any time in the future.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, within Member States of the European Union or in other countries that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, Google will shorten your IP address beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet use.
The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
Use of Social Plugins (Facebook, Xing, YouTube, LinkedIn, Twitter)
This website uses social plugins (“plugins”). These are integrated on our website as a link to the services. If you access our website via a plugin, a direct connection to the servers of the social media services is established. By using the plugins, each provider receives the information that you have called up the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged in to the corresponding service, it can also link the visit to your user account if necessary. If you use the plugins, this information is transmitted from your browser to the provider and stored there.
