7. Cookies

Our website uses cookies. These are small files that are created automatically by your browser and saved on your end device (laptop, tablet, smartphone etc.) when you visit our website. Cookies do not damage your end device, nor do they contain viruses, Trojans or other malware.

The cookie stores information gathered in relation to the specific device used. However, this does not mean that we are directly aware of your identity.

Using cookies helps to make it easier and more pleasant for you to use our website. We use session cookies, for example, to detect that you have visited individual pages on our website before. They are automatically deleted when you leave our website.

To optimise user-friendliness even more, we also use temporary cookies that are saved on your device for a defined period of time. If you visit our website again to use our services, these cookies automatically detect that you have visited us before and remember the entries and settings you made, so that you do not have to do it again.

We also use cookies to gather statistical data on the use of our website and analyse it in order to optimise our services for you (see Section 5). When you visit our website again, these cookies enable us to automatically detect that you have visited us before. These cookies are automatically deleted after a defined period.

Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser to prevent any cookies from being saved on your computer or to always show notification before a new cookie is created. Deactivating cookies completely may prevent you from using some functions of our website.


8. Analysis/tracking tools

We implement the tracking measures listed below on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. We use these tracking measures in order to ensure that the website is designed in line with requirements and that it is continuously optimised. Furthermore, we use the tracking measures in order to record the use of the website statistically and for the purpose of evaluating and optimising our services for you. These interests shall be considered as justified within the meaning of the aforementioned provision.

The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corresponding tracking tools.

Google Analytics
In order to continuously optimise our website and structure it in line with demand, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter “Google”). This involves the creation of pseudonymised usage profiles and the use of cookies (see Section 8). The information on your use of this website generated by the cookie, such as

  • browser type/version,

  • operating system used,

  • referrer URL (the site visited before),

  • host name of the accessing computer (IP address),

  • time of server request,

is usually transmitted to a Google server within the EU or European Economic Area and saved there. However, saving in the USA cannot be ruled out. The information is used to analyse use of the website, compile reports on website activity and provide further services in connection with the use of the website and the internet for the purposes of market research and demand-based structure of this website. The information may also be transmitted to third parties where this is required by law or such third parties process it on our behalf. Google will never connect your IP address with other data. The IP addresses are anonymised so that they cannot be attributed (IP masking).

You can prevent the installation of cookies by making the relevant settings in your browser software. However, please note that this may mean that some functions of this website do not work in full.

You can also prevent the data on your use of the website generated by the cookie (incl. your IP address) from being collected and from being processed by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on.

As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can prevent collection by Google Analytics by clicking this link. This places an opt-out cookie that prevents your data being collected when you visit this website in future. The opt-out cookie applies only for this browser and only for our website, and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you need to reset the opt-out cookie.
You can find more information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics in the  Google Analytics Help, for example.

9. Social media links and plug-ins

Based on Art. 6 Para. 1 Clause 1 lit. f GDPR, we use links to the social networks YouTube and LinkedIn on our website in order to raise the profile of our company. The advertising purpose of this is considered a vital interest under the GDPR. The provider in each case is responsible for guaranteeing operation that complies with data protection. YouTube videos are embedded using a plug-in. In order to protect the data of visitors to our website, we integrate this plug-in under the enhanced data protection mode via

a) LinkedIn
Our website provides a link to the LinkedIn network provided by LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Each of the links to LinkedIn creates a connection to LinkedIn servers. LinkedIn receives notification that you have visited our website with your IP address. If you click the LinkedIn “Recommend” button while you are logged in to your LinkedIn account, LinkedIn can attribute your visit to our website to you and your user account. Please note that, as the website provider, we are not aware of the content of the data transmitted or its use by LinkedIn.

You can find more information on data collection and the legal and setting options you have in the LinkedIn privacy policy at

b) YouTube
Our website uses Plugins of the Website YouTube. The operator of these websites is the Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

We use Youtube in extended data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode causes that YouTube doesn’t save any information about visitors of our website, before they watch the videos. The transfer of data to partners of YouTube is not necessarily excluded by the extended data protection mode. So YouTube establishes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network even if you don’t watch the video.

When you start a YouTube video on our website a connection to YouTube will be established. Then the YouTube-Server will be informed, which of our websites you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can avoid this by logging out of your Youtube account before you watch the video.

Moreover, after starting the video YouTube can install various cookies on your end device. With these cookies YouTube can get more information about the visitors to our website. This information is used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve the user experience and prevent fraud attempts. These cookies will remain on your device until you delete them.

If necessary, further data processing operations may be triggered after the start of a YouTube video, over which we have no control.

The use of YouTube takes place in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers. This is a legitimate interest in terms of Article 6 (1)(f) GDPR.

You can find more information about data protection at YouTube in their privacy policy under: .

c) Twitter
A link of the social network Twitter is integrated on our website. The provider of this social network is Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103 U.S.A. For more information on data protection when using Twitter, please refer to the provider's privacy policy (

12. Data security

During your visit to our website, we use the common SSL (secure socket layer) process combined with the highest level of encryption your browser supports. This is usually 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. You can see whether a particular page of our website is transmitted in encrypted form by the closed key or padlock icon in the lower status bar of your browser.

We also use appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or deliberate manipulation, partial or total loss, destruction or unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological progress.
