Web Analysis/User Tracking

This website uses the web analysis tool “Google Analytics”. The purpose of the use is the “needs-oriented design” of this website, which is carried out on the basis of a balance of interests. Web analysis also enables us to identify and correct errors on the website, e.g. through incorrect links. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. So-called “client IDs” are used to create pseudonymous user profiles that jointly record the use of the Internet pages by desktop computers and mobile devices by a user.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, since we have activated IP anonymisation on this website and concluded a corresponding order processing agreement with Google, Google will reduce your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

Google is certified according to the so-called “Privacy Shield” (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI). Google guarantees an adequate level of data protection.

Purposes of processing personal data

We process the aforementioned data for the operation of our website and for the fulfilment of contractual obligations towards our customers or for the protection of our legitimate interests.

Data that you provide to us will not be passed on to third parties. In particular, your data will not be passed on to third parties for their advertising purposes.

We select our service providers carefully – especially with regard to data protection and data security – and take all measures required under data protection law for permissible data processing.

Safety precautions

We have implemented technical and organisational measures in accordance with Art. 32 DSGVO to ensure the security of the personal data processed by us.
To ensure the security of your data during the transmission process when you visit our website, we also use SSL/TLS encryption procedures in accordance with the current state of the art.
However, security gaps in data transmission over the Internet cannot be completely excluded. For this reason we refer to the possibility to transmit personal data to us also in alternative ways (e.g. by telephone or letter post).

Data processing outside the European Union

If personal data is processed outside the European Union or the European Economic Area, you can see this in the previous explanations.
In these cases, processing shall take place under the special conditions set out in Art. 44 ff. DSGVO. Separate guarantees therefore ensure that the level of protection during processing complies with EU rules.
For processing in the USA, this is done regularly through the recognized “Privacy Shield” program, in other cases predominantly through the use of recognized contractual obligations – the so-called standard contractual clauses.
