The protection of your personal data is very important to us, which is why we address this topic with great care. In the following segments, we would therefore like to inform you about how we handle your personal data. For example, if we collect, process or use personal data on this website, we do so in accordance with the provisions of German and European data protection law. You may use this data privacy information for each case in which personal data is collected to learn more about the type, scope and purpose of the respective collection and use.
Please note that despite all due care, the transmission of data over the Internet is always subject to risks due to possible security vulnerabilities. Therefore, absolute data protection is not possible.
Datavard collects data about each session on this website (so-called server log files). The session data includes the names of the requested websites and files, the date and time of the request, the transferred data volume, the notification of successful request, the browser type and version, the user’s operating system, the referrer URL (the previously visited page), the IP address and the requesting provider.
The processing is carried out pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit f) GDPR based on our legitimate interest in improving the operation, security and optimization of our website.
To the extent that individual cookies implemented by us also process your personal data, the processing is carried out pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit f) GDPR for the purposes of pursuing our legitimate interests in the best possible functionality and a customer-friendly and effective design of our website for your visit. If processing exceeds the extent required for the use of our website, such processing is based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit a) GDPR.
Contact form and e-mail contact
When you contact us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail), we may collect our personal data. In the case of data collection via the contact form on our website, the data concerned can be seen from the respective contact form. This data is collected and used exclusively for the purpose of responding to your request or for contacting you. We will delete the data you have given us as soon as we have responded to your contact request and the matter is resolved. This is the case if it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter in question has been finally resolved and we are not subjected to legal obligation to retain respective data.
The legal basis for the processing of your data is our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit f) GDPR in responding to your request. If your contact enquiry is made in connection with the conclusion of a contract, the legal basis for our processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit b) GDRP.
For the special cases in which personal data is transferred to Google to the USA, Google has subjected itself to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. This provides ample assurance within the meaning of the GDPR that your data will be processed under conditions providing a data protection standard equivalent to the one applied in the EU for similar processing.
The following Google services on our websites are used in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit f) GDPR based on our legitimate interest to a statistical analysis of user behavior for the purpose of optimization and marketing reasons. Insofar as cookies are used in this context, they are processed based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit a) GDPR.
a) Google Analytics
Google utilizes this information to evaluate the use of the website by users in order to compile reports on website activities and to provide the website operator with further services associated with the use of the website and of the Internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser as used in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
Users may reject cookies by selecting the respective settings in their browser software; in this case, however, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. Users may also choose to decline the collection of data generated by the cookie and relating to their use of the website (including their IP address) and its processing by Google through the download and installation of the browser plug-in available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

b) Google Fonts
We are using embedded fonts (“Google Fonts”) provided by Google on our website. When you visit our website, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly. For this purpose, your browser connects to Google’s servers. As a result, Google learns that our website has been accessed via your IP address.
c) Google AdWords Remarketing
d) Google AdWords Conversion Tracking
This website also uses Google’s conversion tracking technology. Google AdWords stores a unique cookie on your computer when you are directed to our website via Google ads. If you access certain areas of our website and the cookie on your computer has not yet expired, we may see that you have been redirected to those areas after clicking on a particular ad. The information collected using conversion cookies enables us to generate conversion statistics. This allows us to determine the total number of users who clicked on our ads and were therefore directed to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not receive any information that could be used to identify individual users. If you wish to deactivate the tracking process, you can reject the relevant cookie (e.g. by deactivating the automatic generation of cookies in your browser settings). You can also disable the conversion tracking cookies by instructing your browser to block cookies from the domain “www.googleadservices.com”.
We do not use social media plug-ins on our website, but only simple link buttons to our presence on the corresponding social networks and platforms. Data processing in the social networks and platforms is wholly independent of our website, which is why we have no control over the data processing that may take place by clicking on the link.
The use of HubSpot on our websites is based on our legitimate interest in statistical analysis of user behavior for optimization and marketing purposes in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit f) GDPR.
