Privacy policy

General

As the operator of this website and as a company, we come into contact with your personal data. This refers to all data that says something about you and with which you can be identified. In this privacy policy, we would like to explain in what way, for what purpose and on what legal basis we process your data.

Responsible for data processing on this website and in our company is:

Marc Weigand

General notes

SSL or TLS encryption

When you enter your data on websites, place online orders or send e-mails over the Internet, you must always be prepared for unauthorized third parties to access your data. There is no complete protection against such access. However, we do everything in our power to protect your data as best we can and to close security gaps as far as we can.

An important protection mechanism is the SSL or TLS encryption of our website, which ensures that data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties. You can recognize the encryption by the lock icon in front of the Internet address entered in your browser and by the fact that our Internet address begins with https:// and not with http://.

How long do we store your data?

At some points in this privacy policy, we inform you about how long we or the companies that process your data on our behalf will store your data. In the absence of such information, we store your data until the purpose of the data processing no longer applies, you object to the data processing or you revoke your consent to the data processing.

However, in the event of an objection or revocation, we may continue to process your data if at least one of the following conditions is met:

We have compelling legitimate grounds for continuing data processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms (only in the case of objection to data processing; if the objection is to direct marketing, we cannot provide legitimate grounds).

The data processing is necessary to assert, exercise or defend legal claims (does not apply if your objection is directed against direct marketing).

We are required by law to retain your data.

In this case, we will delete your data as soon as the requirement(s) cease to apply.

Data transfer to the USA

On our website, we also use tools from companies that transfer your data to the USA and store it there and process it if necessary. This is particularly important for you because your data does not enjoy the same protection in the USA as it does within the EU, where the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies. For example, US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as the data subject being able to take legal action against this. It is therefore possible that US authorities (e.g. intelligence services) process, evaluate and permanently store your data on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.

Your rights

Objection to data processing

IF YOU READ IN THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT THAT WE HAVE LEGITIMATE INTERESTS FOR PROCESSING YOUR DATA AND THEREFORE RELY ON ART. 6 ABS. 1 SENTENCE 1 LIT. F) DSGVO, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT UNDER ART. 21 DSGVO, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING THAT IS CARRIED OUT ON THE BASIS OF THE AFOREMENTIONED PROVISION. THE PREREQUISITE IS THAT YOU STATE REASONS FOR THE OBJECTION THAT ARISE FROM YOUR PARTICULAR SITUATION. NO REASONS ARE REQUIRED IF THE OBJECTION IS DIRECTED AGAINST THE USE OF YOUR DATA FOR DIRECT ADVERTISING.

THE CONSEQUENCE OF THE OBJECTION IS THAT WE MAY NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR DATA. THIS DOES NOT APPLY ONLY IF ONE OF THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS IS MET:

  • WE CAN DEMONSTRATE COMPELLING LEGITIMATE GROUNDS FOR PROCESSING THAT OUTWEIGH YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS.
  • THE PROCESSING SERVES THE ASSERTION, EXERCISE OR DEFENSE OF LEGAL CLAIMS.

THE EXCEPTIONS DO NOT APPLY IF YOUR OBJECTION IS DIRECTED AGAINST DIRECT ADVERTISING OR AGAINST PROFILING THAT IS CONNECTED WITH IT.

Other rights

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are based on your consent. You give this consent, for example, by checking the appropriate box on online forms before you send the form, or by allowing certain cookies when you visit our website. You may revoke your consent at any time without giving reasons (Art. 7 (3) DSGVO). From the time of revocation, we may then no longer process your data. The only exception: we are required by law to retain the data for a certain period of time. Such retention periods exist in particular in tax and commercial law.

Right to complain to the competent supervisory authority

If you believe that we are in breach of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority pursuant to Art. 77 GDPR. You may contact a supervisory authority in the Member State of your residence, place of work or the place where the alleged infringement took place. The right of complaint exists alongside administrative or judicial remedies.

Right to data portability

Data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract must be handed over to you or a third party in a common machine-readable format if you request this. We can only transfer the data to another responsible party if this is technically possible.

Right to information, deletion and correction of data

According to Art. 15 DSGVO, you have the right to receive information free of charge about which of your personal data we have stored, where the data came from, to whom we transmit the data and for what purpose it is stored. If the data is incorrect, you have the right to rectification (Art. 16 DSGVO), under the conditions of Art. 17 DSGVO you may demand that we delete the data.

Right to restriction of processing

In certain situations, you may request us to restrict the processing of your data in accordance with Art. 18 DSGVO. The data may then – apart from storage – only be processed as follows:

  • with your consent
  • for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims
  • to protect the rights of another natural or legal person
  • for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State

The right to restrict processing exists in the following situations:

  • You have disputed the accuracy of your personal data stored by us and we need time to verify this. Here the right exists for the duration of the review.
  • The processing of your personal data is unlawful or was unlawful in the past. Here you have the right alternatively to the deletion of the data.
  • We no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims. Here you have the right alternatively to the deletion of the data.
  • You have filed an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DSGVO and now your and our interests must be weighed against each other. Here, the right exists as long as the result of the weighing has not yet been determined.

Hosting and Content Delivery Networks (CDN)

Cloudflare

What is Cloudflare? 
Content Delivery Network (CDN) with Domain Name System (DNS)

Who processes your data? 
Cloudflare Inc, 101 Townsend St., San Francisco, CA 94107, USA

Has an order processing contract been concluded with Cloudflare? 
Yes

Where can you find more information about privacy at Cloudflare? https://www.cloudflare.com/privacypolicy/

On what basis do we transfer your data to the USA? On the basis of the standard contractual clauses of the European Commission (see https://www.cloudflare.com/media/pdf/cloudflare-customer-dpa.pdf).

How do we process your data?

We use the services of Cloudflare for our website. The global content delivery network ensures that all the content we provide online reaches you quickly, even if it involves moving large amounts of data over long distances. This is made possible by the fact that Cloudflare, with all its technical capabilities and servers around the world, is interposed between our website and your browser, analyzing the traffic and filtering out malicious data before it reaches our server. In doing so, Cloudflare also comes into contact with personal data collected through our website. In addition, the company may use cookies or other technologies to recognize Internet users. The data processing by Cloudflare always serves the sole purpose of enabling fast data traffic.

On what legal basis do we process your data?

We have a legitimate interest in providing visitors to our website with the fastest and most efficient online service possible. The data processing is thus based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

Data collection on this website

Cookies use

Our website places cookies on your device. These are small text files that are used for different purposes. Some cookies are technically necessary for the website to function at all (necessary cookies). Others are needed to perform certain actions or functions on the site (functional cookies). For example, without cookies it would not be possible to take advantage of a shopping cart in an online store. Still other cookies are used to analyze user behavior or to optimize advertising measures. If we use third-party services on our website, e.g. to process payment transactions, these companies may also leave cookies on your device when you access the website (so-called third-party cookies).

How do we process your data?

Session cookies are only stored on your device for the duration of a session. As soon as you close the browser, they disappear by themselves. Permanent cookies, on the other hand, remain on your device unless you delete them yourself. This can lead, for example, to your user behavior being permanently analyzed. You can use the settings in your browser to influence how it handles cookies:

  • Do you want to be informed when cookies are set?
  • Do you want to exclude cookies in general or for certain cases?
  • Do you want cookies to be automatically deleted when you close the browser?

If you disable or do not allow cookies, the functionality of the website may be limited.

If we use cookies from other companies or for analysis purposes, we will inform you about this as part of this privacy policy. We also request your consent in this regard when you visit our website.

On what legal basis do we process your data?

We have a legitimate interest in ensuring that our online offers can be used by visitors without technical problems and that all desired functions are available to them. The storage of necessary and functional cookies on your device is therefore based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. We use all other cookies on the basis of Art. 6 (1) a) DSGVO, provided you give us your consent. You can revoke this at any time with effect for the future. If you have consented to the placement of necessary and functional cookies when requesting consent, these cookies are also stored exclusively on the basis of your consent.

Server log files

Server log files log all requests and accesses to our website and record error messages. They also include personal data, in particular your IP address. However, this is anonymized by the provider after a short time, so that we cannot assign the data to you personally. The data is automatically transmitted to our provider by your browser.

How do we process your data?

Our provider stores the server log files in order to track activity on our website and locate errors. The files contain the following data:

  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address (anonymized if necessary)

We do not combine this data with other data, but use it only for statistical analysis and to improve our website.

On what legal basis do we process your data?

We have a legitimate interest in ensuring that our website runs without errors. It is also our legitimate interest to obtain an anonymized overview of the accesses to our website. Therefore, the data processing is lawful according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

Contact form

You can send us a message via the contact form on this website.

How do we process your data?

We store your message and the information from the form to be able to process your request including follow-up questions. This also applies to the contact details provided. We do not pass on the data to other persons without your consent.

How long do we store your data?

We delete your data as soon as one of the following occurs:

  • Your request has been finalized.
  • You request us to delete the data.
  • You revoke your consent to storage.

This does not apply only if we are required by law to retain the data.

On what legal basis do we process your data?

If your request is related to our contractual relationship or serves the implementation of pre-contractual measures, we process your data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO. In all other cases, it is our legitimate interest to effectively process requests directed to us. The legal basis for data processing is therefore Art. 6 (1) f) DSGVO. If you have consented to the storage of your data, Art. 6 (1) a) DSGVO is the legal basis. In this case, you can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future.

Request by e-mail, phone or fax

You can send us a message by e-mail or fax or call us.

How do we process your data?

We store your message as well as your self-made contact details or the transmitted phone number to be able to process your request including follow-up questions. Without your consent, we do not pass on the data to other persons.

How long do we store your data?

We delete your data as soon as one of the following occurs:

  • Your request has been finalized.
  • You request us to delete the data.
  • You revoke your consent to storage.

This does not apply only if we are required by law to retain the data.

On what legal basis do we process your data?

If your request is related to our contractual relationship or serves the implementation of pre-contractual measures, we process your data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO. In all other cases, it is our legitimate interest to effectively process requests directed to us. The legal basis for data processing is therefore Art. 6 (1) f) DSGVO. If you have consented to the storage of your data, Art. 6 (1) a) DSGVO is the legal basis. In this case, you can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future.

Social media plugins

Use of social media plugins

Regular use

We use social media plugins on our website. You can recognize them by the logos of the social networks. Thanks to the plugins, you can easily share the content on our website on social networks. The list at the end of this section shows which plugins we use in detail. Here you will also find the networks’ information relevant to data protection.

How do we process your data?

Due to the embedded plugins, a connection to the servers of the social networks is established when you visit our website. This happens even if you do not share any content. In this way, the offering companies learn that the website was visited via your IP address. If you are logged into your account on a social network when you visit our website, the transmitted data can also be assigned to your personal profile. If you do not want this, you must log out of your account before you continue surfing the Internet.

Except for Xing, all networks store the IP address. Further personal data may be added. As a rule, your data is transferred to servers in the USA. If this is the case, you can find out the basis on which this happens in each case from the information on the networks given below.

On what legal basis do we process your data?

It is important for the success of our company to be present in social networks. It is therefore our legitimate interest to use the social media plugins to ensure that the content of our website or our offers can be easily shared. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

If you have consented to data processing, we process your data exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 (1) a) DSGVO. You can revoke your consent at any time. From the time of revocation, we may no longer process your data.

It does, however, record your IP address and transmit it to Google servers in the USA.

On what legal basis do we process your data?

We have a legitimate interest in a fast and uncomplicated integration and management of various tools on our website. The use of Google Tag Manager is therefore lawful according to Art. 6 (1) f) DSGVO.

How do we process your data?

We are always interested in optimizing our web offering for visitors to our website and placing advertising in the best possible way. Google Analytics, a tool that analyzes the behavior of users and thus provides us with the necessary database for adjustments, helps us to do this. The tool provides us with information about the origin of our visitors, their page views and the time they spend on the pages, as well as the operating system they use.

Standard processing

To collect the data, Google Analytics uses cookies, device fingerprinting or other technologies to recognize users. The data is transmitted to Google servers in the USA and, with the help of the IP address that is also collected, is summarized in a profile that can be assigned to you or your device.

You can prevent Google from processing your data by installing a browser plugin provided by Google itself: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

How long do we store your data?

According to its own information, Google deletes or anonymizes data stored at user and event level that is linked to cookies, user identifiers (e.g. user IDs) or advertising IDs after 50 months (cf. https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7667196?hl=de).

On what legal basis do we process your data?

As website operator, we have a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior for the purpose of optimizing our website and the advertising placed there. The data processing is therefore lawful according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. In the event that you have consented, for example, to the storage of cookies or have otherwise consented to data processing by Google Analytics, only Art. 6 (1) a) DSGVO is the legal basis. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future.

How do we process your data?

We are always interested in optimizing our web offer for users and placing advertising optimally. For this purpose, we also use Google’s conversion tracking. With its help, we can record whether and how often visitors have clicked on certain buttons on our website and which products were viewed and purchased particularly frequently (conversion statistics) . In the course of data collection and storage, we do not receive any information with which we can personally identify individual visitors. Google itself uses cookies or comparable recognition technologies for identification.

On what legal basis do we process your data?

As website operator, we have a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior for the purpose of optimizing our website and the advertising placed there. The data processing is therefore lawful according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. In the event that you have consented, for example, to the storage of cookies or have otherwise consented to data processing by Google Conversion Tracking, only Art. 6 (1) a) DSGVO is the legal basis.

Plugins and tools

YouTube (with enhanced privacy)

What is YouTube? 
Video platform

Who processes your data? 
Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland

Where can you find more information about YouTube privacy? https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de

How do we process your data?

You can watch YouTube videos on our website. Google, as the provider of YouTube, collects and stores certain information about you. However, since we use YouTube in extended data protection mode, this only happens when you start a video. Specifically, the following happens in this case:

  1. Google’s servers are informed which of our pages were visited from your device. If you are logged into your YouTube account while surfing, Google can assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. If you do not want this, you must log out of your YouTube account before you continue surfing the Internet.
  2. Google receives information about visitors to our website via cookies, device fingerprinting or similar recognition technologies. On this basis, the company then creates video statistics, makes its application more attractive to users and prevents fraud attempts.
  3. If necessary, your data may also be processed beyond this. However, we are not aware of the details. We can also not influence the processing.

Even if you do not start a YouTube video on our website, Google will establish a connection to its DoubleClick network and possibly also to other partners. The extended privacy mode therefore does not mean that Google does not process any data from you at all when you visit our website.

On what legal basis do we process your data?

With the integration of YouTube videos, we would like to make our website and our services and offers more appealing. This is our legitimate interest as a company and therefore lawful according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

If you have consented to data processing, we process your data exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 (1) a) DSGVO. You can revoke your consent at any time. From the time of revocation, we may no longer process your data.

Wordfence

Has an order processing contract been concluded with Wordfence? Yes

Where can you find more information about privacy at Wordfence? https://www.wordfence.com/help/general-data-protection-regulation/

On what basis do we transfer your data to the USA? 
On the basis of standard contractual clauses of the European Commission (cf. https://www.wordfence.com/help/general-data-protection-regulation/)

How do we process your data?

To protect our website from malicious traffic, we use the Wordfence plugin. It identifies and blocks data that has malicious code or content, and checks core files, themes, and plugins for malware, bad URLs, backdoors, SEO spam, malicious redirects, and code injections. In order for these measures to be carried out, our website is permanently connected to Defiant Inc. servers in the USA. On these, accesses to our website are compared with the data that Wordfence has stored in its database and, if necessary, blocked.

On what legal basis do we process your data?

As a website operator, we have a legitimate interest in protecting ourselves from malicious data traffic. The data processing is therefore lawful according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

If you have consented to data processing, we process your data exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 (1) a) DSGVO. You can revoke your consent at any time. From the time of revocation, we may no longer process your data.

Spotify

What is Spotify? 
Audio streaming service

Who processes your data? 
Spotify AB, Birger Jarlsgatan 61, 113 56 Stockholm, Sweden

Where can you find more information about Spotify privacy?
https://www.spotify.com/de/legal/privacy-policy/

How do we process your data?

We use Spotify plugins on our website. You can recognize them by the green logo. When you visit our website, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Spotify server. Spotify thus learns that a device with your IP address has visited our website. If you are logged into your Spotify account when you click the Spotify button on our website, Spotify can assign the visit to our website to your personal profile. If you do not want this, you must log out of your Spotify account before you continue surfing the Internet.

Spotify also uses cookies from Google Analytics, a tool for collecting and analyzing user behavior on the Internet from the US company Google LLC. You must therefore assume that your data will be passed on to Google. We have no influence on this.

On what legal basis do we process your data?

With the integration of Spotify plugins, we would like to make our website also acoustically an experience for the visitors. This is our legitimate interest as a company and therefore lawful according to Art. 6 (1) lit. f) DSGVO.

If you have consented to data processing, we process your data exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 (1) a) DSGVO. You can revoke your consent at any time. From the time of revocation, we may no longer process your data.
