1. Terminology

Data privacy is a complex subject. We have listed a number of term definitions to simplify the understanding of this data privacy statement.

In accordance with art. 28 of the basic data privacy regulation (DS-GVO) (previously “Order data processing” is a service which processes person-related data on behalf and under the direction of the above mentioned responsible person by a service provider (order processor as per GDPR). We establish a special contract with the service provider and ensure additional measures to protect your person related data before such an order is awarded to a service provider.

Cookies” are small text files, which are stored on the terminal (e.g. computer or smart phone) used by you and which store certain settings and data for the exchange with our system through your browser. A cookie includes normally the name of the website visited from which the cookie data has been sent, information about the age of the cookie and an alphanumerical identification attribute. Cookies permit the identification of the user device and make possible pre-settings immediately available.

Third-party is an individual or a legal entity or body – except the affected person, the responsible person, the order processor and the persons – which are authorized under the direct responsibility of the responsible person to process the person-related data, see art. 4 No, 10 GDPR. For example, a third-party is not a service provider that receives person-related data as part of an order processing in accordance with art. 28 GDPR.

IP addresses are number sequences that can be allocated to individual IT devices or a group. Similar to postal addresses, the IP is used to be able to allocate data to the correct recipient.

“Responsible person” in accordance with art. 4 No. 7 GDPR is each person or body, who/which solely or jointly with others decides about the purposes and means of the processing of person-related data. (here: website operator).

2. Responsible person

6. Integration of third-party services and content

6.1 General information
As part of the online offering, it can happen that the offerings of third-parties, such as videos by Vimeo, maps by Google Maps or graphics by other websites, are integrated. This always assumes that the providers of these contents (hereafter called “third-party provider”) utilize the IP address of the users. The third-party providers normally need the IP address to send the content to the browser of the respective user. Therefore, the IP to address is required for the presentation of these contents. We make an effort to only use those contents whose provider use the IP address only for the delivery of the contents. However, we have no influence if the third-party providers store the IP address, for example, for statistical purposes. If we know about it, then we will inform you.

6.2 Usage of Matomo (formerly Piwik)
The web analysis service “Matomo” will be used on this website if you gave your general agreement as part of the cookie banner. Web analysis services acquire, collect, and evaluate data about the behavior of visitors on websites. Appropriate cookies will be stored on your computer for this purpose. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website, for example, visited sub-pages and access time, including your meta data such as the IP address and device information, will be transferred to our server and stored. You can find the storage duration of the individual cookies in the cookie guideline under item 3.1.1.

To protect the site visitors, we have configured Matomo in such a way that your IP address is only acquired as a shortened version (so-called IP masking). Therefore, we process your personal usage data anonymized. A reference to your person as part of the web analysis is not possible.

The legal basis for the use of Matomo is your approval in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. A web analysis of your visit does not take place if you did not agree to the use of tracking cookies as part of the cookie banner.

You can also cancel your agreement at any time effective for the future by preventing the storage of the cookies through appropriate settings in your browser software as referenced under 3.1.4, or by actuating the following button that deletes the previously made cookie settings and that enables you to decide which cookies you want to accept:

This is where you can reset your cookie settings.

6.3 Usage of Google Maps
We integrated maps of the “Google Maps” service by the provider Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (in short “Google”)) on our website to be able to show you how you can reach us.

Appropriate map contents will be called up in this connection from the Google servers if you gave your agreement as part of the cookie banner or during the further use of our website. It is possible that Google records and stores, among others, your IP address when calling external servers. A processing of personal data outside the area of the European Union (EU) cannot be excluded (the parent company is Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). It is also possible, that cookies are installed on your computer. Google LLC is certified in accordance with the privacy shield agreement and therefore it is obligated to adhere to the EU data protection standards: (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

However, please note that it is possible that you cannot completely use all functions on our website.

6.4 Usage of Google fonts
To present fonts uniformly, we use on our website so-called “web fonts” by Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (in short “Google“).

When calling up our Internet pages, your browser uploads the required web fonts into your browser cache to be able to present texts and font types correctly. This assumes that your IP address is processed. The contents can normally not be sent to the browser of the respective user without knowing the IP address.

We use Google Fonts in “offline” mode to protect the site visitors. We therefore have stored the Google Fonts locally on our web server and this means that a transfer of the IP address to Google does not take place.

The use of Google Fonts is based on our interest in a uniform and appealing presentation of our website. This represents a justified interest in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 lit. GDPR

6.5 Usage of Vimeo
On our website, we integrate videos through the “Vimeo” platform, a service of Vimeo Inc. (Legal Department, 555 West 18th Street New York, New York 10011, USA (in short Vimeo“)).

Appropriate videos will be called up in this connection from Vimeo if you gave your agreement as part of the cookie banner or during the further use of our website. A connection to the Vimeo servers in the US will in this case be established. It is possible that Vimeo records and stores, among others, your IP address when calling up external Vimeo servers in the US. It is also possible, that Vimeo installs cookies on your computer. Vimeo is certified in accordance with the privacy shield agreement and therefore it is obligated to adhere to the EU data protection standards: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt00000008V77AAE&status=Active.

The legal basis for the use of Vimeo is your approval in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can cancel your agreement at any time effective for the future by preventing the storage of the cookies through appropriate settings in your browser software as referenced under 3.1.4, or by actuating the following button that deletes the previously made cookie settings and that enables you to decide which cookies you want to accept:

This is where you can reset your cookie settings.

However, please note that is possible that you cannot completely use all functions on our website.

The established cookie settings will be deleted after 24 hour if you do not delete them earlier.

Additional information about the acquisition and use of your data by Vimeo as well as your respective rights can be found in the Vimeo data privacy statement under https://vimeo.com/privacy.

The processing of personal data as part of the usage of social media services also includes the processing purposes for market research, advertising as well as the acquisition of statistical data. Based on the usage behavior, the social media providers can establish usage profiles (Tracking) and can use these, among others, for the transmission of interest-based advertising and can provide statistical data for the usage of the offering to the operating company of a social media channel. Cookies of the social media service provider will normally be placed and stored on the devices of the user for the acquisition of the user behavior and for the generation and storage of usage profiles. If you have an account with a social media service and if you are registered/logged in there, then the usage data can be stored independent of the device used by you.

The processing of your personal user data and the data of the statistical analysis of the usage is performed based on our justified interests (as per art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) for effective information about the users and the communication with the users.

Additional information about the scope of the processing of personal data by social media providers for the processing purposes, the deletion and deadlines, the legal basis of the processing as well as your rights and the possibility to establish specific settings (opt out) can be found in the data protection information of the respective social media service providers shown below.

If you want to receive information about the processing of your personal data in connection with social media services or if you want to enforce your rights of an affected person in this connection, then we suggest that this is most effectively possible if you address your interest directly to the respective service provider. If you want to assert your information request or other rights through us, then we will be pleased to transmit your request to the service provider, because the service provider has access to the respective user data and can initiate measures in accordance with your usage rights.

The processing of personal data outside the area of the European Union (EU) cannot be excluded when using social media services. As a matter of principle, the processing of personal data outside the EU includes risks with respect to the enforcement of the rights of affected persons and the observing of the general protection objectives of the data protection. The providers of social media services used by us generally process personal data in the US, which means outside the EU. If the providers based in the US are certified in accordance with the EU-US privacy shield, then they have obligated themselves to adhere to the EU data protection standards.
