a) General information regarding cookies

We use cookies on our Firm’s website. These are small files that your browser automatically creates and they do not cause any damage to your end device (laptop, tablet, smartphone or similar), and in particular do not contain any viruses, trojans or other malicious software.

 

Information is stored in the cookie that comes about in each case in connection with the specific end device used. However, this does not mean that we thereby receive direct knowledge of your identity.

b) Analysis Tool: Google Analytics

For the purposes of designing our Firm’s website in line with demand and its continuous optimisation we use the analysis tool “Google Analytics”. This is a web analysis tool from Google Inc. (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (in the following called “Google” for short).

 

In this connection user profiles are created with pseudonyms and cookies (see the above paragraph a) of this privacy policy) are used. It is not possible to work out your identify from that. The information generated by the cookie regarding your use of our website such as

 

  • Browser type/version,
  • Operating system used,
  • Referrer URL (the website visited beforehand),
  • The host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
  • Time of the server request,

The information is used in order to evaluate the use of our website, to put together reports about the website activities and to perform further services associated with the use of the website and the internet usage for the purposes of market research and designing our Firm’s website in line with demand. This information is also transferred to third parties if necessary, to the extent that this is required by law or to the extent that third persons are contracted to process the data. Your IP address is never put together with other data by Google. The IP addresses are anonymised so that it is not possible to allocate them (IP masking).

 

You can prevent the installation of the cookies by adjusting the settings on the browser software used by you. However, we refer to the fact that in this event it may be that not all functions of our Firm’s website can be used to the full extent.

c) Usage of Script-Libraries (Google Webfonts)

For uniform representation of fonts, this page uses web fonts provided by Google. When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.

 

When you call up a page of our website that contains a social plugin, your browser makes a direct connection with Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that our web page was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our website. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.

 

If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.

 

Further information about handling user data, can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s privacy policy at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

 

d) Usage of Google Maps

This site uses the Google Maps map service via an API. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

 

To use Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP address. This information is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transfer.

 

The use of Google Maps is in the interest of making our website appealing and to facilitate the location of places specified by us on the website. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.

 

Further information about handling user data, can be found in the data protection declaration of Google at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

 

e) Embedding of YouTube Videos

Our website uses plugins from YouTube, which is operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

 

If you visit one of our pages featuring a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. Here the YouTube server is informed about which of our pages you have visited.

 

If you’re logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube allows you to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

 

YouTube is used to help make our website appealing. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.

 

Further information about handling user data, can be found in the data protection declaration of YouTube under https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

 

f) Newsletter

If you would like to receive our newsletter, we require a valid email address as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified email address and that you agree to receive this newsletter. No additional data is collected or is only collected on a voluntary basis. We only use this data to send the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.

 

We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO. You can revoke consent to the storage of your data and email address as well as their use for sending the newsletter at any time, e.g. through the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter.

7. Data security

During a visit to our website we use the common SSL process (Secure Socket Layer) together with the highest level of encryption in each case that is supported by your browser.

You can tell whether any particular page of our Internet site has been transmitted with encryption by the closed key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser.

 

Otherwise, we use suitable technical and organisational security measures to protect your data from accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continually improved in accordance with technological developments.
