We use the SSL protocol (Secure Socket Layer) on the website in conjunction with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser. Typically, this is 256 bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256 bit encryption, we instead use 128 bit v3 technology. You can tell whether individual pages of our website are transmitted in an encrypted manner because you will see the image of a key or lock symbol in your browser's bottom status bar.

Furthermore, we use suitable technical or organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction, and against unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously revised in response to technological development.

8. Tracking-Tools

We use the following tracking measures in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR. We use these tracking measures to design our website based around user needs and ensure ongoing optimization.

These are legitimate interests according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

8.1 Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics on our website. This is a web analysis service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google.”

Through certification under the EU-US Privacy Shield

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

Google guarantees that it complies with the data privacy provisions of the EU, even when data are processed in the USA.

The Google Analytics service is used to analyze user behavior on our website. The legal basis for doing so is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in analyzing, optimizing and in the economical operation of our website.

Usage and user-specific information, such as your IP address and the place, time or frequency with which you visit our website, are transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

 

However, we use Google Analytics with the anonymization function. With this function, Google shortens your IP address within the EU or EEA.

Google then uses the data collected to provide us with an analysis of visitors to our website and their user activities here. These data can also be used to provide further services related to the use of our website and use of the internet.

Google states that it does not combine your IP address with other data. In addition, Google provides further data privacy information at

https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners

for instance on your options for preventing the use of your data.

In addition, Google offers a deactivation add-on at

https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

with further information on the add-on. This add-on can be installed with common web browsers, and offers you further options to control the data Google records when you access our website. The add-on tells the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js) that information on your visit to our website should not be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, this does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analytics services. Of course, this Data Privacy Declaration also indicates whether we use further web analytics services, and which services these are.

8.2 Google Maps

We use Google Maps on our website to represent our location and generate directions. This is a service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google.”

Through certification under the EU-US Privacy Shield

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

Google guarantees that it complies with the data privacy provisions of the EU, even when data are processed in the USA.

When you access our website, a connection is formed to the Google server in the USA to make it possible to display certain fonts on our website.

If you access the Google Maps component integrated into our website, Google saves a cookie on your device via your web browser. Your user settings and data are processed to display our location and generate directions. We cannot exclude the possibility that Google may use servers in the USA.

The legal basis for doing so is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in optimizing the functionality of our website.

Through the connection created to Google, Google can identify the website from which your inquiry was sent and to which IP address the directions should be delivered.

If you do not agree to this processing, you can prevent cookies from being installed by changing the settings on your web browser. Further details are provided under the point “Cookies” above.

In addition, Google Maps and the information collected through Google Maps are used according to the Google Terms of Use https://policies.google.com/terms?gl=DE&hl=de and the Terms and Conditions for Google Maps

https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/help/terms_maps.html.

In addition, Google offers further information at

9. Social Media Plug-Ins

We use social plug-ins to social networks on our website based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The underlying advertising purpose is considered being in our legitimate interest under the GDPR. The respective provider must ensure that its operations conform to data privacy requirements. We integrate these plug-ins using the two-click method to provide the best possible protection for visitors to our website.

9.1 LinkedIn

We use components of the network LinkedIn on our website. LinkedIn is a service of the LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“LinkedIn”). Each time you access a page of our website which contains such components, the component causes your browser to download an icon displaying the LinkedIn component.

This process informs LinkedIn which specific page of our website you are currently visiting. If you click the LinkedIn “Recommend” button while you are logged into your LinkedIn account, you can link the content of our pages to your LinkedIn profile. This allows LinkedIn to associate your visit to our website with your LinkedIn user account.

We can neither influence the data LinkedIn collects nor the scope of this data collected by LinkedIn. We also have no knowledge of the content of data transmitted to LinkedIn. Details on data collection by LinkedIn and on your rights and settings are provided in the LinkedIn data privacy notices. These notices are available at

http://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy.

9.2 Twitter

Our website operates social plug-ins from the microblogging service Twitter, which is operated by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA (“Twitter”). These plug-ins are indicated by a Twitter logo, for instance in the form of a blue “Twitter bird.” You can find an overview of the Twitter Plug-ins and what they look like here: https://about.twitter.com/en_us/company/brand-resources.html.

If you access another website that includes one of these plug-ins, your browser creates a direct connection to the Twitter servers. The content of this plug-in is transferred directly from Twitter to your browser and linked to the page. Through this link, Twitter receives the information that your browser has accessed our website, even if you don’t have a Twitter profile or aren’t logged into Twitter at the time.

This information (including your IP address) is transferred from your browser directly to a Twitter server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged into Twitter, Twitter can associate your visit to our website directly with your Twitter account. When you interact with the plug-ins, for instance by clicking the “Tweet” button, this information is also transferred directly to a Twitter server and saved there. This information is published outside of your Twitter account and displayed to your contacts there.

Please see the Twitter Data Privacy Policy for questions regarding the purpose and extent of this data collection and the further processing and use of data by Twitter, as well as on your rights and setting options in this regard to protect your privacy: https://twitter.com/privacy.

If you do not want Twitter to associate data collected through our website directly with your Twitter account, you must log out of Twitter before visiting our website. You can also entirely block Twitter plug-ins from loading with browser add-ons, for instance with the “NoScript” script blocker (http://noscript.net/).
