Data protection policy

Thank you for visiting our website. In the following, we would like to inform you about the handling of your data in accordance with Art. 13 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

1. Person responsible
Verantwortlich für die nachfolgend dargestellte Datenerhebung und Verarbeitung ist die im The person responsible for data collection and processing as set out below can be found on our Imprint page.

2. Usage data
When you visit our websites, so-called usage data is temporarily evaluated on our web server for statistical purposes as a protocol in order to improve the quality of our websites. This data record consists of

  • the name and address of the requested content,
  • the date and time of the request,
  • the amount of data transferred,
  • the access status (content transferred, content not found),
  • the description of the web browser and operating system used,
  • the referral link, which indicates the page from which you came to ours,
  • the IP address of the requesting computer. The IP address is automatically anonymised, i.e. the last two triplets are randomised.

The aforementioned protocol data is only evaluated anonymously.

3. Anonymous visitor measurement
We carry out anonymous visitor measurement on our websites. For this purpose, the protocol data of the web server and the shortened IP address are evaluated. It is not possible to draw any conclusions about your person.

4. Data security
In order to protect your data from unwanted access as comprehensively as possible, we take technical and organisational measures. We use an encryption procedure on our websites. Your data is transferred from your computer to our server and vice versa via the Internet using TLS encryption. You can usually recognise this by the fact that the lock symbol is closed in the status bar of your browser and the address line begins with .

5. Cookies required
We use cookies on our websites that are necessary for the use of our websites. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your terminal device and can be read. A distinction is made between session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and permanent cookies, which are stored beyond the individual session.

We do not use these necessary cookies for analysis, tracking or advertising purposes.

These cookies partly only contain information about certain settings and are not personally identifiable. They may also be necessary to enable user guidance, security and implementation of the site.

We use these cookies on the basis of Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f GDPR.

You can set your browser to inform you about the placement of cookies and to make the use of cookies transparent for you. You can also delete cookies at any time via the corresponding browser setting and prevent the setting of new ones. Please note that our websites then may not be displayed and some functions may no longer be technically available.

6. Matomo
We use the web analysis tool "Matomo" to design our websites in line with demand. Matomo creates user profiles based on fingerprints (including the hash value of the operating system, browser, browser plugins, anonymised IP address and browser language). No cookies are set. In this way, we are able to recognise returning visitors and count them as such.

The data processing is based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR or § 15 (3) p. 1 TMG, if you have given your consent via our banner.

You can revoke your consent at any time. To do so, please follow this link and make the appropriate settings via our banner.

7. Data processing in social networks
We use so-called social networks to bring you closer to our company profile and the associated offers.

a. LinkedIn
For the operation of our LinkedIn presence at we are joint data controllers with LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland pursuant to Art. 26 GDPR.

You can access the documents underlying the joint data processing by us and LinkedIn here:
- LinkedIn's data protection declaration and explanation of the processed data:
- LinkedIn's data processing statement:
- Shared responsibility agreement on LinkedIn:
The purpose of data processing via our presence on LinkedIn is to provide information about our company, service improvement, company visibility on the network, customer relationship maintenance, user interaction and job applications.

The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in sharing our information, offers and services with users and being able to communicate with them. Insofar as we publish images of persons, this is done either on the basis of consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR, on the basis of contractual agreements pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. b GDPR or on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f GDPR in conjunction with Art. 23 (1) KunstUrhG (German law regulating art and copyright questions).

We use LinkedIn to display advertisements. For this purpose, we use so-called "insight data" provided by LinkedIn to evaluate the behaviour of our target group or users in the context of interaction with our site. Weighing up the interests of both parties, the target group-specific control of advertising represents an overriding interest of our company. The data processing in this respect is described in LinkedIn's Privacy Policy (see above). The legal basis for the use of the "Insight data" is therefore Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f GDPR. In accordance with the joint responsibility agreement concluded between LinkedIn and the participating companies, LinkedIn serves as the contact for any enquiries. Please note that LinkedIn may transfer data to unsafe third countries. The transfer to a third country takes place on the basis of Art. 49 (1) lit. a GDPR.
