1 General information on the collection of personal data and contact details of the controller
Your personal data (e.g. name, address, e-mail, telephone number, etc.) will only be processed by us in accordance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The controller for the processing of personal data is

To minimise potential security gaps, the website uses SSL or TLS encryption. Nevertheless, we would like to point out that Internet-based data transmission has security gaps and that complete protection against access by third parties is therefore impossible.
The use of our website is possible without providing personal data. Different regulations may apply to the use of individual services on our website, which are explained separately below in this case. In this respect, the following regulations inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the collection, use and processing of personal data by the controller.
For technical reasons, the following data, which your Internet browser transmits to us or to our web space provider, is recorded (so-called server log files):
– Browser type and version
– Operating system used
– Website from which you visit us (referrer URL)
– Website you visit
– Date and time of your access
– Your Internet Protocol (IP) address.
This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal data you may have provided and therefore does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about a specific person. They are evaluated for statistical purposes in order to guarantee our Internet presence, the security, stability and functionality of the website and to be able to optimise our offers.
We use so-called cookies on our website to recognise multiple use of our website by the same user/internet connection owner. Cookies are small text files that your Internet browser places and stores on your computer. They serve to optimise our Internet presence and our offers. These are mostly so-called “session cookies”, which are deleted after the end of your visit.
However, some of these cookies provide information to recognise you automatically. This recognition is based on the IP address stored in the cookies. This enables us to optimise our services and make it easier for you to access our website. This also applies in part to our partner companies/advertising partners (third-party cookies), which help to make the website more interesting. Information on third-party cookies is provided in individual sections below.

We offer you the opportunity to subscribe to our newsletter on our website. With this newsletter we inform you at regular intervals about products, news, offers/promotions, competitions, etc. To receive our newsletter, you need a valid e-mail address. We will check the e-mail address you have entered to ensure that you are actually the owner of the e-mail address provided or that the owner is authorised to receive the newsletter. This is done via an opt-in procedure in which you receive an e-mail with a confirmation link to confirm the e-mail address provided. E-mail newsletters are only sent after the confirmation link has been activated.
When you register for our newsletter, we will save your IP address and the date and time of your registration. This serves as a safeguard on our part in the event that a third party misuses your e-mail address and subscribes to our newsletter without your knowledge. We do not collect any further data.

5.2 Sending newsletters to existing customers
In the event that you have provided us with your e-mail address as part of a purchase of goods or services, we reserve the right to regularly send you information about offers that are similar to the goods or services you have purchased. This data processing is based on the legitimate interest in personalised direct advertising in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If you have previously objected to the processing of your e-mail address for this purpose, you will not be sent such newsletters. If you object to receiving this newsletter in the future, you have the right to notify us in writing to the above-mentioned contact. After receipt of the objection, the sending of this newsletter will be stopped immediately.
6 Contact possibility
On our website, we offer you the opportunity to contact us by e-mail and/or via a contact form. In this case, the information provided by the user will be stored for the purpose of processing the contact and the necessary technical administration. It will not be passed on to third parties.

We use Google Analytics on our website, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site.
The information generated by these cookies, such as the time, place and frequency of your website visit, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google in the USA and stored there.
We use Google Analytics with an IP anonymisation function on our website. In this case, your IP address will already be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area and thus anonymised.
Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website activity for us and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.
Furthermore, Google offers a deactivation option for the most common browsers, which gives you more control over which data is collected and processed by Google. If you activate this option, no information about the website visit will be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, activation does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analysis services we may use. For more information on the deactivation option provided by Google and how to activate this option, please click on the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
Alternatively, you can click on the following link to set an “opt-out cookie”. This means that Google Analytics will not collect and process data in the future. Please note that this opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for this domain. As soon as you delete the cookies in your browser, click this link again
8 Use of Google Maps
We use the “Google Maps” component of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”, on our website.
Each time the “Google Maps” component is called up, Google sets a cookie to process user settings and data when the page on which the “Google Maps” component is integrated is displayed. As a rule, this cookie is not deleted when you close the browser, but expires after a certain period of time unless you delete it manually beforehand.
If you do not agree with this processing of your data, you have the option of deactivating the “Google Maps” service and thus preventing the transfer of data to Google. To do this, you must deactivate the Java Script function in your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you will not be able to use “Google Maps” or only to a limited extent.
and the additional terms and conditions for “Google Maps”
9 Online Marketing
9.1 Use of Google AdWords
We also use the Google advertising tool “Google Adwords” to advertise our website. As part of this, we use the “Conversion Tracking” analysis service of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter “Google”, on our website. If you have reached our website via a Google advert, a cookie will be stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser stores on your computer. These so-called “conversion cookies” lose their validity after 30 days and are not used to identify you personally. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognise that you as a user have clicked on one of our ads placed on Google and have been redirected to our site.
The information collected with the help of “conversion cookies” is used by Google to compile visit statistics for our website. These statistics tell us the total number of users who have clicked on our advert and also which pages of our website were subsequently accessed by the respective user. However, we or other advertisers via “Google Adwords” do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified.
You can prevent the installation of “conversion cookies” by setting your browser accordingly, for example by using a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies or specifically blocks only cookies from the domain “googleadservices.com”. Alternatively, you can permanently deactivate cookies for ad preferences by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin?hl=de
10 Remarketing/retargeting/recommendation advertising
10.1 Facebook Pixel
We use the “Facebook pixel” of Facebook Inc, 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA (“Facebook”) on our website. This is a survey of user behaviour after the user has seen or clicked on a Facebook ad. The background to this process is to evaluate the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes in order to optimise future advertising measures.
The data collected is anonymous to the company and does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about the identity of the user. Facebook stores and processes the data to enable a connection to the respective user profile and that Facebook can subsequently use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with the Facebook Data Usage Policy (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/). There is an option to allow Facebook and its partners to place adverts on and off Facebook. A cookie may be stored on your computer for these purposes.
The aforementioned processing operations are only carried out if express consent has been granted in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. Consent to the use of the Facebook pixel may only be given by users who are at least 14 years old. If you are younger than the specified minimum age, please ask your parent or guardian for permission.
Alternatively, you can click on the following link to set an “opt-out cookie”. This means that Facebook will not collect and process your data in future. Please note that this opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for this domain. As soon as you delete the cookies in your browser, click this link again
10.2 Google Remarketing
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and enable your use of the website to be analysed. This makes it possible to recognise our visitors as soon as they access websites within the Google advertising network. In this way, adverts can be presented within the Google advertising network that relate to content that the visitor has previously accessed on websites in the Google advertising network that also use Google’s remarketing function. According to Google, it does not collect any personal data. You can deactivate this function by making the appropriate settings at http://www.google.com/settings/ads.
11 Use of reCAPTCHA
To protect input forms on our website, we use the “reCAPTCHA” service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”. By using this service, it is possible to differentiate whether the corresponding input is of human origin or is abusive due to automated machine processing.
To our knowledge, the referrer URL, the IP address, the behaviour of website visitors, information about the operating system, browser and length of stay, cookies, display instructions and scripts, the user’s input behaviour and mouse movements in the “reCAPTCHA” checkbox area are transmitted to “Google”.
Among other things, Google uses the information obtained in this way to digitise books and other printed materials and to optimise services such as Google Street View and Google Maps (e.g. house number and street name recognition).
The IP address transmitted as part of “reCAPTCHA” will not be merged with other Google data unless you are logged into your Google account at the time you use the “reCAPTCHA” plug-in. If you want to prevent this transmission and storage of data about you and your behaviour on our website by “Google”, you must log out of “Google” before you visit our site or use the reCAPTCHA plug-in.
12 Use of social share buttons with “Shariff”
We use the c’t project “Shariff” on our website. “Shariff” replaces the usual share buttons of social networks and thus protects surfing behaviour
“Shariff” only integrates these social network share buttons on our website as a graphic that contains a link to the corresponding social network. By clicking on the corresponding graphic you will be forwarded to the services of the respective network. The Shariff button only establishes direct contact between the social network and our visitors when the visitor actively clicks on the share button. Only then will your data be transmitted to the respective social network. However, if the Shariff button is not clicked, no exchange takes place between you and the social networks. Further information about the c’t project “Shariff” can be found at http://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/Shariff-Social-Media-Buttons-mit-Datenschutz-2467514.html
13 Publication of job adverts / online job applications
Your application data will be collected and processed electronically by us for the purpose of handling the application process. If your application is followed by the conclusion of an employment contract, we may store the data you have submitted in your personnel file for the purpose of the usual organisational and administrative process in compliance with the relevant legal regulations.
If your job application is rejected, the data you have submitted will be deleted automatically two months after notification of the rejection. This does not apply if longer storage is necessary due to legal requirements (for example, the burden of proof under the General Equal Treatment Act) or if you have expressly consented to longer storage in our database of interested parties.
You can contact us free of charge if you have any questions about the collection, processing or use of your personal data and its correction, blocking, deletion or revocation of a given consent. We would like to point out that you have the right to have incorrect data corrected or personal data deleted if this claim does not conflict with any legal obligation to retain data.
