I. Information about us as responsible parties
II. Information on data processing
Your data processed during the use of our website will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies, the deletion of the data does not conflict with any legal storage obligations and no other information is subsequently provided on individual processing procedures.
For technical reasons, in particular to ensure a secure and stable Internet presence, data is collected, among other things, on the type and version of your Internet browser, the operating system, the website from which you switched to our Internet presence (referrer URL), the website(s) of our Internet presence that you visit, the date and time of the respective access and the IP address of the Internet connection from which our Internet presence is used.

This website uses social media plugins (e.g. LinkedIn, XING). When visiting websites containing such plugins, your browser connects to the computers of the social media provider. The provider is informed that you have visited this website. If you are logged on to the provider at the same time, the provider can assign the visit to your profile. If you do not want the provider to collect data about you via this website, you must log out of the provider before visiting this website. Even when you are logged out, the providers collect anonymous data via the social media plugins and can also set cookies. This data can be assigned to your profile the next time you log in to the provider. You can prevent the storage of cookies and web beacons etc. by adjusting the settings in your web browser. By using this website without adjusting your browser settings, you consent to the processing of data collected via the social media plugins by the providers. Information on the purpose and scope of data collection can be found in the providers' privacy notices.
a) Session cookies/session cookies
We use so-called cookies with our Internet presence. Cookies are small text files or other storage technologies that are stored on your terminal device by the Internet browser you use. Through these cookies, certain information from you, such as your browser or location data or your IP address, is processed to an individual extent. This processing makes our website more user-friendly, more effective and more secure, as the processing enables, for example, the reproduction of our website in different languages or the offer of a shopping basket function. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b.) DSGVO, insofar as these cookies process data for the initiation or execution of contracts. If the processing does not serve the purpose of contract initiation or contract processing, our legitimate interest lies in the improvement of the functionality of our Internet presence. The legal basis is then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.
These session cookies are deleted when you close your Internet browser.

In the case of so-called Flash cookies, however, processing cannot be prevented by the browser settings. Instead, you must change the settings of your Flash player. The steps and measures required for this also depend on the Flash Player you are using. If you have any questions, please also use the help function or documentation of your Flash Player or contact the manufacturer or user support.
Should you prevent or restrict the installation of cookies, this may, however, mean that not all functions of our website can be used to their full extent.

If the plug-in is stored on one of the pages of our website that you visit, your Internet browser will download a representation of the plug-in from the Facebook servers in the USA. For technical reasons, it is necessary for Facebook to process your IP address. In addition, however, the date and time of your visit to our website are also recorded. If you are logged in to Facebook while visiting one of our Internet pages equipped with the plug-in, the information collected by the plug-in on your specific visit will be recognized by Facebook. Facebook may assign the information collected in this way to your personal user account there. For example, if you use the "Like" button on Facebook, this information is stored in your Facebook user account and may be published on the Facebook website. If you wish to prevent this, you must either log out of Facebook before visiting our website or prevent the loading of the Facebook plug-in from being blocked by using an add-on for your Internet browser.

Google AdWords with conversion tracking
In our internet presence we use the advertising component Google AdWords and the so-called conversion tracking. This is a service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter only referred to as "Google". Through certification under the EU-US Privacy Shield, Google guarantees that the data protection requirements of the EU are also complied with when processing data in the USA. We use conversion tracking to advertise our services in a targeted manner. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our website. If you click on an advertisement placed by Google, the conversion tracking we use stores a cookie on your end device. These so-called conversion cookies lose their validity after 30 days and do not serve for your personal identification. If the cookie is still valid and you visit a particular page of our website, both we and Google can evaluate that you clicked on one of our ads placed with Google and that you were then redirected to our website. Google uses the information collected in this way to compile statistics about your visit to our website. It also provides us with information about the number of users who clicked on our ad(s) and the pages of our website that were subsequently called up. However, neither we nor third parties who also use Google AdWords are put in a position to identify you in this way. You can also prevent or restrict the installation of cookies by means of the appropriate settings in your Internet browser. At the same time you can delete already stored cookies at any time. However, the steps and measures required for this depend on the Internet browser you are using. If you have any questions, please use the help function or documentation of your Internet browser or contact its manufacturer or support. Google also offers further information on this topic and in particular on the possibilities of preventing the use of data at https://services.google.com/sitestats/en.html , http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/ and http://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.
Google Remarketing or "similar target groups" component of Google
Addthis Bookmarking Service
In the case of direct or indirect references to external Internet pages ("links"), which are outside the area of responsibility of the website operator, a liability obligation would only come into force if the provider is aware of the contents and it would be technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent use in the case of illegal contents. The provider therefore expressly declares that at the time the links were created, the linked pages were free of illegal content. The provider has no influence on the current and future design and content of the linked pages. Therefore, the website operator hereby expressly distances himself from all contents of all linked pages that were changed after the link was set. This statement applies to all links and references set within the own internet offer as well as to external entries. For illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and in particular for damages resulting from the use or non-use of such information, the provider of the page to which reference is made shall be solely liable, not the person who merely refers to the respective publication via links.
The use of a contact form, the delivery of an e-mail or the establishment of contact by telephone does not constitute a contractual relationship. Contacting by e-mail or contact form (alone) is not suitable for current deadlines of any kind and for urgent matters. Your data will be treated confidentially and can be forwarded to partners for processing. The data transmitted or made available by you will be used and processed exclusively in connection with your contact. By contacting us (contact form, e-mail or telephone) you agree to the processing of your data. Information provided free of charge by e-mail or telephone is provided without complete knowledge of the file and is not binding, solely on the basis of the information provided, without any claim to completeness or accuracy. The transmission of the entered data via a contact form from your computer to the server is encrypted. The data entered in the contact form is not stored on your computer (no cookie or similar). Despite encryption, absolute security is not possible. The server forwards your data entered in the contact form by e-mail for processing. These e-mails are not encrypted. The use of e-mails is not technically secure; it may happen that e-mails are not delivered. When transmitting e-mails, they may leave the national borders, even if both sender and recipient are in Germany. The confidentiality of e-mails cannot be guaranteed if encryption is missing or insufficient. Unencrypted e-mails are therefore not suitable for sending confidential information. By using the contact form or sending an e-mail, you agree to communication via e-mail in full knowledge of the risks described.
Should any provision of this disclaimer be or become invalid, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of the disclaimer. The invalid provision shall be replaced by a valid provision which comes as close as possible to the purpose of the invalid provision. The same applies to any loopholes.
The website operator reserves the right to change the content of the website and these terms at any time. You are therefore invited to read these terms and conditions each time you visit the website.
