First: We comply with data protection laws and the European General Data Protection Regulation and protect your privacy as best we can.

Visiting our website

When you are visiting our website, SSL or TLS encryption is used to protect the transmission of incoming and outgoing requests. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser begins with “https://” and by the lock symbol in the browser line. If you just want to look around our website, no personal data will be collected, except of the data that your browser transmits to enable you to visit the website, first and foremost:

  • Name of the accessed website (e.g. the website that has just been accessed)
  • Date and time of retrieval (e.g. 11:45 on 25.05.2018)
  • amount of data transferred (e.g. 2427 bytes)
  • Message about successful retrieval (e.g. the information whether there was an error when calling up the page)
  • Browser type and version (e.g. the browser Firefox 60.0.1 used)
  • das Betriebssystem des Nutzendes (z.B. MacOS 10.13.4)
  • Referrer URL (the previously visited page)
  • IP address and the requesting provider (e.g. 95.91.215.example or 2a02:8109:9440:1198:bdb1:551f:example)
  • Status codes (e.g. status code 200: Request successfully processed)

The most interesting thing for you as a visitor to our website is the IP address, as this is data that can theoretically be traced back to you as a person. As a protective measure in favor of your privacy, all data will therefore be deleted from the website after your visit. The purpose of the temporary storage of the data at the beginning is to ensure the connection as well as accessibility and correct presentation of our website. The IP address and the technical data already mentioned are required to display the website, to avoid display problems with visitors and to correct error messages. The legal basis is our so-called legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR.

SSL encryption

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as the requests you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is activated, the data that you transmit, e.g. via the contact form, cannot be read by third parties.

Collection, processing, and disclosure of personal data when commissioned

When commissioning our service, we collect and process personal data only to the extent necessary to fulfill and process the order as well as to process the request. The provision of the data is necessary for the conclusion of the contract or for the execution of the order. Failure to provide this provision means that no contract can be concluded. The processing takes place based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR and is necessary for the performance of the contract with you. Your data will only be passed on if there is a legal obligation and within the framework of contractually regulated processes. In all cases, we strictly observe the legal requirements. The scope of data transmission is limited to a minimum.

Types of data processed

  • Inventory data (e.g., personal master data, names or addresses).
  • Contact details (e.g., e-mail, telephone numbers).
  • Content data (e.g., text input, photographs, videos).
  • Usage data (e.g., websites visited, interest in content, access times).

When contacting us (e.g. by e-mail, telephone, contact form or via social media), the information provided by the users, including all resulting personal data (name, e-mail address), will be processed to process the contact request and its processing in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. (in the context of contractual/pre-contractual relationships), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR (other inquiries). The information provided by users can be stored in a system-supported environment (“CRM system”) or comparable applications (billing). We delete the requests if they are no longer necessary. The necessity is regularly reviewed. Furthermore, the statutory archiving or storage obligations apply. Requests that have no relevance or do not need to be stored will be deleted. This also applies to unwanted applications and advertising.

Awareness measures – technical and organisational measures

In accordance with the legal requirements, considering the state of the art, the implementation costs and the nature, scope, circumstances, and purposes of the processing as well as the different probability of occurrence and severity of the risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, we take appropriate technical and organizational measures (TOM) to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk.

The measures include ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data by controlling physical access to the data, as well as access, input, disclosure, ensuring availability and its separation. Furthermore, procedures have been put in place to ensure the exercise of data subject rights, deletion of data and reaction to data endangerment. Furthermore, we consider the protection of personal data already during the development or selection of hardware, software, and procedures, in accordance with the principle of data protection through technology design and data protection-friendly default settings. Our online offer and the information compiled here. System and process GoBD conformity is also considered.

Cooperation with processors, joint responsibilities and third parties

If, as part of our processing, we disclose data to other persons and companies (processors, joint controllers or third parties), transmit them to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this will only be done based on legal permission.
We make sure that cooperation with contracting parties and service providers is either regulated by an order processing contract or that a declaration of commitment to confidentiality and compliance with data and business secrecy has been concluded. With joint responsibility, we make sure that our business contacts are also committed to data protection.

Transfers to third countries

If data is processed in a third country (i.e. countries outside the European Union) or if this is done in the context of the use of services of third parties (software, applications, etc.), this will only take place if it is necessary for the fulfilment of our (pre)contractual obligations, or if we have given our consent. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we process or have the data processed in a third country only if the legal requirements have been met. This means that the processing takes place, for example, based on special guarantees, or compliance with officially recognized, special, contractual obligations. For providers from so-called third countries for which there is no agreement with the EU, it is necessary to observe and comply with the standard contractual clauses defined by the EU-DSK. Accordingly, we refer the contracting parties to compliance with these clauses. For our part, no data is actively transferred to third countries.

When you actively access one of our videos, a connection to YouTube’s servers is established. The YouTube server is informed which of our pages you have visited.

If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

Vimeo Video Platform

Our website embeds videos of Vimeo operated by Vimeo LLC, 555 West 18th Street, New York 10011 (“Vimeo”). The plugins are marked with a Vimeo logo, for example in the form of the letter “V” or the lettering “vimeo”.

When you visit a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Vimeo’s servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Vimeo directly to your browser and integrated into the page. Through this integration, Vimeo receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Vimeo profile or are not currently logged in to Vimeo.

This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a Vimeo server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged in to Vimeo, Vimeo can directly associate your visit to our website with your Vimeo account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the “Vimeo” button, this information is also transmitted directly to an Instagram server and stored there.

The information will also be published on your Vimeo account and displayed there to your contacts.

If you do not want Vimeo to associate the data collected via our website directly with your Vimeo account, you must log out of Vimeo before visiting our website. Further information can be found in Vimeo’s privacy policy (https://vimeo.com/privacy).

Objection to advertising e-mails

The use of our contact data published within the scope of the imprint obligation for the purpose of sending unsolicited advertising and information materials is hereby rejected. As the operator of the pages offered, we expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam e-mails.

Changes and updates to the Privacy Policy

Please inform yourself regularly about the content of this data protection information. This is because these are updated as soon as changes to the data processing carried out by us make this necessary or as required by law.

For reasons of better readability, we have dispensed with the simultaneous use of female and male forms of language and in some cases used the generic masculine. All personal designations apply equally to all genders.
