The conversation has been ended when the circumstances suggest that the facts of the case in question have been finally resolved.

The personal data, which is also gathered during the sending procedure, is deleted after a period of seven days, at the very latest.

DATA TRANSFER TO THIRD PARTIES

Our website also contains third-party services (for example: Google Analytics, Google reCAPTCHA, Google Maps API). If you give your consent as part of our cookie banner, we will transfer data to the respective provider (e.g. your IP address) to the extent necessary.

If you consent to the activation of these services by as part of our cookie banner, it cannot be ruled out that personal data may be transferred to providers in countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) which, from the point of view of the European Union („EU“), do not guarantee an „adequate level of protection“ for the processing of personal data in accordance with EU standards. Possible risks that cannot currently be ruled out are in particular:

– Your personal data could possibly be disclosed by the third-party service providers to other third parties beyond the actual purpose, e.g. Use your data for advertising purposes.

– You may not be able to assert or enforce your rights to information against the third-party providers in the long term.

– There may be a higher probability that incorrect data processing may occur because the technical and organizational measures taken by third-party providers to protect personal data do not fully comply with the requirements of the GDPR in terms of quantity and quality.

– The risk of data transfer to the USA lies in the relatively easy access to data by US authorities, as well as in the fact that EU citizens would not have effective legal remedies against the far-reaching access powers of US authorities to personal data.

Please take this fact into account before giving your consent and thus enabling the transmission of your data.

For more information, please refer to our cookie banner.

The same applies to the social media profiles operated by us when you visit our pages with the respective social media provider (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn).

GOOGLE ADSERVICES AND GOOGLE ADWORDS CONVERSION

This website uses functions of the service „Google Ads“ (formerly Google AdWords), a service of Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as „Google“). Google Ads enables us to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising media on external websites. This enables us to determine how successful individual advertising measures are. These advertising media are delivered by Google via so-called „AdServers“. For this purpose, we use so-called AdServer cookies, which can be used to measure certain parameters for measuring success, such as display of the ads or clicks by users. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Ads will store a cookie on your PC.

These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days. They are not intended to identify you personally. The following information is usually stored as analysis values for this cookie: unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions), opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed). These cookies allow Google to recognize your web browser. If a user visits certain pages of an Ads customer’s website and the cookie stored on their computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page. A different cookie is assigned to each Ads customer. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across Ads customers‘ websites. We ourselves do not collect and process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. Based on these evaluations, we can see which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising tools; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information. Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with Google’s server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of Google Ads. According to our knowledge, Google receives the information that you have called up the relevant part of our website or clicked on an ad from us. If you have a user account with Google and are registered, Google can assign the visit to your user account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is the possibility that Google learns your IP address and stores it.

The legal basis for the processing is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR. If you do not want Google Ads to collect and process the aforementioned data, you can refuse your consent or revoke it at any time with effect for the future.

In the context of processing by Google Ads, data may be transmitted to the USA. The following recipients may be, among others, Google LLC. and Alphabet Inc. The security of the transmission is secured via so-called standard contractual clauses, which ensure that the processing of personal data is subject to a level of security that corresponds to that of the GDPR.

For more information about data processing by Google, please refer to Google’s privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

GOOGLE FONTS

We use the Google Fonts service on our website. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland. The service allows us to use external fonts.

When you visit our site, your browser loads the required fonts directly from a Google server into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly. This transmits to the server which of our Internet pages you have visited. Your IP address is also stored by Google.

The legal basis for the use of Google Fonts is consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR.

ONETRUST CMP

On our website, we use the cookie management platform called OneTrust to obtain your consent to the storage of certain cookies in your browser and to document this in accordance with data protection regulations. The provider is OneTrust Technology Limited (hereinafter „OneTrust“), 82 St John St, Farringdon, London EC1M 4JN, United Kingdom (UK).

By incorporating a JavaScript code, a banner is displayed to users when the page is accessed, which gives the user the opportunity to give or reject his consent to the setting of cookies for individual purposes or individual functions of our website. In doing so, the tool blocks the setting of all cookies requiring consent until the respective user gives appropriate consent. This ensures that cookies requiring consent are only set on the user’s respective device if there is an existing legal basis.

In order for OneTrust to be able to individually record or log the consent settings made by the user, the following user information is collected by the tool when our website is accessed:

IP address (only temporarily to display the correct banner depending on the access location);

  • The respective consent settings of the user, whereby we cannot trace which natural person is behind the user.
  • OneTrust is used to obtain the legally required consent for the use of cookies. The legal basis is Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR.

We have concluded a contract for order processing with OneTrust. This is a contract required by data protection law, which ensures that One Trust processes the personal data of our website visitors only in accordance with our instructions and in compliance with the GDPR. We would like to point out that your data may be transferred to the USA.

The collected data will be stored until you request us to delete it or delete the OneTrust cookie yourself or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies. Mandatory statutory retention periods remain unaffected. Details on the data processing of OneTrust cookies can be found in the OneTrust privacy policy at

https://www.onetrust.com/privacy/.
