Data Processing

  1. Visiting our website

As a matter of principle, we do not identify visitors to our website. When you visit our website, we collect the following data which the browser transmits to our server and the server stores temporarily (for 90 days):

  • The IP address of your computer
  • Date and time of access
  • Name and address of the called file
  • Amount of data transmitted
  • Message whether the retrieval was successful
  • Identification data of the browser and operating system used
  • The name of your internet service provider

The processing of this data takes place in order to make the use of the website technically possible (connection establishment). In addition, the data is evaluated in anonymised and aggregated form (i.e. without the possibility of drawing conclusions about individual users) statistically for the purposes of system security, technical administration of the network infrastructure and to optimise our online offering.

  1. Processing of personal data

Otherwise, we only process personal data via this website if you provide us with this information, e.g. via our contact form or by e-mail. We usually delete this data three years after the end of contact with you.

  1. Cookies

We use so-called cookies to enable the secure use of our website. Cookies are small text files that enable our website to store information on your computer and retrieve it later (e.g. when you visit our website again later). The use of cookies makes it possible, for example, to “remember” the language in which we may present our content to you.

These files do not allow any inference to your person, but only allow to temporarily identify your computer. You can deactivate or block the storage of cookies in your browser in general or only for our site. You can find out how to do this from the help function of your browser. However, this may lead to limitations in the user-friendliness of our website.

  1. Links, in particular to our company website on LinkedIn

Our website contains links to other sites, including our presence on LinkedIn (LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, California 94043, USA). Only when the link is clicked the provider (such as LinkedIn) receives information (including personal data if applicable) about your visit. For more information, please refer to the LinkedIn privacy policy:

Recipients of personal data

    1. Enforcement of rights

In order to protect our rights or the rights of third parties, we may pass on data to rights holders, consultants and authorities.[4]

  1. External service providers for data processing

We cooperate with service providers who support us in the provision of our services. These service providers process your data on our behalf, in accordance with our instructions and under our supervision, solely for the purposes described in this privacy policy. These service providers may also be established outside the EU. We will take all necessary steps to ensure that the information you provide is adequately protected in accordance with the requirements of the European Union’s data protection legislation. Where necessary, we ensure a legally adequate level of data protection by means of EU standard contractual clauses.
