3. Cookies

Our site uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files which are used by our website to make your visit quicker and easier; they enable access to secure areas of our website.

Depending on where a cookie originated from, you can differentiate between a first-party and third-party cookie:

First Party Cookies Cookies created and locally stored by website operators for processing controllers or a processor commissioned by the controller. Only the operator can access these cookies.
Third Party Cookies Cookies created, set and accessed by third-party suppliers; these are not used as processors for website users.

Depending on the period of validity, you can also differentiate between transient and persistent cookies:

Transient Cookies Cookies which are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include session cookies.

Depending on their property and purpose of use, user permission may be required for use of certain cookies. You can also differentiate between cookies which require obligatory user permission:

Cookies (Consent Not Required) Cookies necessary so that the website provider can provide their service (“Essential Cookies”)
Cookies (Consent Required) Cookies that are used for all other purposes than those mentioned above („non-essential cookies“).

If user permission is required, then we only use precisely these cookies if you previously granted permission to do so. A “cookie banner” appears when you access our website, where you can click a button to grant your permission for using cookies.

Necessary cookies cannot be deactivated via this website's cookie banner. However, you can manage and deactivate these cookies in your general browser at any time.

4. Third Party

We use various third party services to provide our services and continuously improve; personal data must be processed for this purpose. For example, our website uses tracking technology so that we can measure, assess and continuously improve. We can also identify and avert fraud and security risks to protect our users and partners.

4.1 Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4. Ireland (“Google”).

Google Analytics uses cookies for analyzing how you use the website. Google uses this information on our behalf to evaluate how the user uses our online offer, to compile reports about activities carried out within this online offer and to deliver information about the use of this online offer and internet use of linked services. Pseudonym user profiles may be created from the processed data.

Your data protection is our top priority, this is why we have employed a configuration parameter “anonymizeIP” alongside Google Analytics. The code records your IP address as truncated. Your personal usage data is kept anonymous in Google Analytics. Google will truncate the user’s IP address within European Union member states or in other contracting states in the European Economic Area. The user’s IP address communicated via the browser will not be associated with other data held by Google.

Information about how you use our online offer created by the cookie is normally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Data processing is carried out based on your consent, in accordance with Art. 6, Par. 1 (a) of the GDPR, if you’ve given your consent for our banner to be used. You can retract your consent at any time. To do so, please follow this link and make the necessary changes to the settings for use of this banner. Data transfer to a third country takes place based on Art. 49 Par. 1 (a) of the GDPR.

You can find more information about Google’s data use, setting options and appeal options under Google’s privacy policy, as well as settings for Google advertisements. You can find more information about terms of use of Google Analytics and data protection law here.

4.2 HubSpot

We use services provided by the software HubSpot. HubSpot is an American software company with a branch in Ireland (HubSpot European Headquarters, Ground Floor, Two Dockland Central, Guild Street, Dublin 1, Ireland).

HubSpot is a service platform. The service used is an integrated software solution for managing customer data and various aspects of our online marketing. This includes analysis of the landing pages and reporting. “Web beacons” are used for this and cookies are stored on your device used.

This enables e.g. the following personal data to be collected.

  • IP address
  • Geographical location
  • Type of browser
  • Duration of the visit
  • Accessed pages

The recorded information and website content is stored on our software partner HubSpot’s servers in Ireland. We use HubSpot for analyzing use of our website. This enables us to continuously improve our website and make it user-friendly. We also use information to determine which services we provide are of interest to our customers and newsletter subscribers and to contact them for these advertising purposes. We also use this information to improve website use for you.

We only use your IP address in truncated form. HubSpot truncate the user’s IP address within European Union member states or in other contracting states in the European Economic Area. Full IP addresses are rarely sent to a HubSpot server in the USA and truncated there.

Cookies have a typical service life of 13 months. We delete all personal data collected via HubSpot as soon as the purpose the data was collected for has been obtained, as long as this does not infringe any legal requirements.

Information about how you use our online offer created by the cookie is normally also transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.Data processing is carried out based on your consent, in accordance with Art. 6, Par. 1 (a) of the GDPR, if you’ve given your consent for our banner to be used. You can retract your consent at any time. To do so, please follow this link and make the necessary changes to the settings for use of this banner. Data transfer to a third country takes place based on Art. 49 Par. 1 (a) of the GDPR.

5. Social Plug-Ins

We use social plug-ins from various providers of social networks. Social plug-ins enable website content to be distributed via social networks. You can find social plug-ins from various internet services on this website. The details page contains information about these individual plug-ins and examples of their use and integration.

5.1 Google Web Fonts

Our website uses web fonts provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”) to ensure standardized font display.

When a site is accessed, your browser loads the necessary web fonts into your browser cache so that text and fonts can be correctly displayed. Your browser must connect to the Google servers for this purpose; personal data may need to be sent to the Google LLC servers in USA for this.

It is not possible to ensure an adequate level of data protection in view of Google LLC and data processing being carried out in the USA. Authorities may be able to access the data for security and monitoring purposes without the need to inform you or you being able to appeal this. We cannot influence to what extent Google will process your data for their own purposes or link it with your other user profiles.

This is why we have integrated Google fonts locally on our web server and not on the Google servers. There is no connection to the Google servers and therefore no data communication and no data is stored. Legal grounds for processing the data is in our legitimate interest for the purpose of Art. 6 Par. 1 (f) of the GDPR.

You can revoke processing of this data at any time using the settings in your browser or certain browser extensions. Please note that this may produce some functional limitations to the website. You can find further information about Google Web Fonts here and in Google’s privacy policy.

This service manages website tags via an interface. Google Tag Manager only implements tags. That means: No cookies are used and no personal data is collected. Google Tag Manager triggers other tags which, in turn, collect data.

Tag Manager is run in your browser, i.e. at the very least, stored as information in your device’s storage.

Data processing is therefore carried out based on your consent, in accordance with Art. 6, Par. 1 (a) of the GDPR, if you’ve given your consent for our banner to be used. You can retract your consent at any time. To do so, please follow this link and make the necessary changes to the settings for use of this banner. Data transfer to a third country takes place based on Art. 49 Par. 1 (a) of the GDPR.

You can find additional information about handling of user data in the Google Tag Manager Use Policy.
