contact form

Data transmitted via the contact form will be stored including your contact data in order to be able to process your request or to be available for follow-up questions. These data will not be passed on without your consent.

The data entered in the contact form will be processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). A revocation of your already given consent is possible at any time. An informal notification by e-mail is sufficient for the revocation. The legitimacy of the data processed up to revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Data transmitted via the contact form will be stored until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or until there is no longer any need to store the data. Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

Newsletter data

To send our newsletter we need an e-mail address from you. A verification of the given e-mail address is necessary and you have to agree to receive the newsletter. Additional data is not collected or is voluntary. The data will be used exclusively for sending the newsletter.

The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). A revocation of your already given consent is possible at any time. For the revocation, an informal notification by e-mail is sufficient or you unsubscribe via the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

Data entered to set up the subscription will be deleted in case of cancellation. If these data have been transmitted to us for other purposes and elsewhere, they will remain with us.

YouTube

For integration and display of video content, our website uses plugins from YouTube. The video portal is provided by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

When a page with integrated YouTube plugin is called up, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells YouTube which of our pages you have called up.

YouTube can directly assign your surfing behavior to your personal profile, if you are logged in to your YouTube account. By logging out you have the possibility to prevent this.

YouTube is used in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Details on the treatment of user data can be found in the YouTube privacy policy at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

Cookies

Our website uses cookies. These are small text files that your web browser stores on your end device. Cookies help us to make our website more user-friendly, effective and safer.

Some cookies are “session cookies.” Such cookies are automatically deleted after the end of your browser session. On the other hand, other cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them yourself. Such cookies help us to recognize when you return to our website.

With a modern web browser you can monitor, restrict or prevent the setting of cookies. Many web browsers can be configured so that cookies are deleted automatically when you close the program. Disabling cookies may result in limited functionality of our website.

The setting of cookies, which are necessary for electronic communication processes or the provision of certain functions desired by you (e.g. shopping basket), is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f GDPR. As operators of this website, we have a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and faultless provision of our services. If other cookies are set (e.g. for analysis functions), these will be treated separately in this data protection declaration.

Borlabs Cookie

This website uses Borlabs cookie, which sets a technically necessary cookie (borlabs cookie) to store your cookie consent.

Borlabs Cookie does not process any personal data.

The borlabs cookie stores your consent that you gave when you entered the website. If you wish to revoke these consents, simply delete the cookie in your browser. When you re-enter/reload the website, you will be asked again for your cookie consent.

Google Analytics

Our website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider of the web analysis service is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses “cookies.” These are small text files that your web browser stores on your end device and enable an analysis of website use. Information generated by cookies about your use of our website is transmitted to a Google server and stored there. Server location is usually the USA.

The setting of Google Analytics cookies is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize our website and, where applicable, advertising.

IP anonymity

We use Google Analytics in conjunction with the IP anonymity function. It ensures that Google reduces your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before sending it to the USA. There may be exceptional cases in which Google transfers the full IP address to a server in the USA and reduces it there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to create reports on website activities and to provide us with further services associated with the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

Browser Plugin

The setting of cookies by your web browser can be prevented. However, some functions of our website could be limited by this. You can also prevent the collection of data regarding your website usage, including your IP address and subsequent processing by Google. This is possible by downloading and installing the browser plugin accessible via the following: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Objection to data collection

You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent the collection of your information on future visits to our site: Disable Google Analytics.

Details on how Google Analytics handles user data can be found in the Google privacy policy: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.

Order processing

In order to fully comply with the legal data protection requirements, we have concluded a contract with Google for order processing.

Demographic characteristics at Google Analytics

Our website uses the “demographic features” function of Google Analytics. It can be used to generate reports that contain information about the age, gender and interests of visitors to the site. This data is derived from interest-based advertising by Google and from visitor data from third parties. It is not possible to assign the data to a specific person. You can disable this feature at any time. You can do this through the ad settings in your Google Account or by generally prohibiting the collection of your data by Google Analytics, as explained in the “Opting out of data collection” section.

XING Plugin

Our website uses features of the XING network. The provider is XING AG, Dammtorstraße 29-32, 20354 Hamburg, Germany.

When a page with integrated Xing functions is called up, a connection to the Xing servers is established. Personal data is not stored in this process to the best of our knowledge. IP addresses are not stored, nor is there any evaluation of user behavior.

Details on data protection and the XING Share button can be found in the XING privacy policy at:https://www.xing.com/app/share?op=data_protection.

Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking

Our website uses Google AdWords. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States.

AdWords is an online advertising program. As part of the online advertising program we work with conversion tracking. After a click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that your web browser stores on your device. Google AdWords cookies expire after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. The cookie enables Google and us to recognize that you have clicked on an ad and been directed to our site.

Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked through websites of AdWords customers. Conversion cookies are used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who use conversion tracking. AdWords customers learn how many users clicked on their ad and were redirected to pages with conversion tracking tags. However, AdWords customers do not receive any information that allows for personal identification of users. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can opt out of using the service. In this case, the conversion cookie must be deactivated in the user settings of the browser. In this way, no inclusion in the conversion tracking statistics takes place.

The storage of “conversion cookies” is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. As website operators, we have a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to improve our website and our advertising.

Details on Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking can be found in the Google data protection regulations: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.

With a modern web browser you can monitor, restrict or prevent the setting of cookies. Disabling cookies may result in limited functionality of our website.

Google Web Fonts

Our website uses Web Fonts from Google. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

By using these web fonts it is possible to present you with the presentation of our website that we desire, regardless of which fonts are locally available to you. This is done by retrieving the Google Web Fonts from a Google server in the USA and the associated transfer of your data to Google. This is your IP address and which page you have visited on our website. The use of Google Web Fonts is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in the optimal presentation and transmission of our web presence.

The company Google is certified for the us-European data protection convention “Privacy Shield”. This data protection agreement is intended to ensure compliance with the level of data protection applicable in the EU.

Details about Google Web Fonts can be found at: https://www.google.com/fonts#AboutPlace:about and further information can be found in Google’s privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy/partners?hl=de
