4. Cookies

In addition to the aforementioned data, cookies are stored on your computer when you use our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard drive assigned to the browser you are using and through which certain information flows to us or third parties. Cookies cannot execute programmes or transfer viruses to your computer. They are used to make the website more user-friendly and effective overall. A distinction is made between different types of cookies, e.g:

4.1 Necessary cookies

Technically necessary cookies help to ensure that you can move around the website by enabling basic functions such as page navigation and access to secure areas. Without these cookies, our website would not function properly. The use cases of necessary cookies include, for example, language settings or shopping baskets. Necessary cookies are stored for the duration of your internet session.

Depending on whether the cookies are necessary for the operation of the website itself or for the service you are using, the processing is based on our legitimate interest pursuant to Section 25 (2) no. 2 TTDSG in conjunction with Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f GDPR or the fulfilment or initiation of a contractual relationship between you and us pursuant to Section 25 (2) no. 2 TTDSG in conjunction with Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. b GDPR.

4.2 Performance and statistics cookies (analytic)

Analytic cookies are used to collect information about the use of the website. These cookies register, among other things, the number of website visitors, the pages visited and the duration of each visit. The data collected is used to improve our services and to optimise the content of the website to the wishes and needs of visitors.

The legal basis for the use of these cookies is your consent in accordance with Section 25 (1) TTDSG in conjunction with Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a GDPR.

5. Social Media

5.1 LinkedIn Insight Tag

We use the LinkedIn Insight Tag. The provider of this service is LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland (hereinafter "LinkedIn"). The LinkedIn Insight tag is a small JavaScript code snippet that we have added to our website.

The LinkedIn Insight tag enables the collection of data about visits to our website, including URL, referrer URL, truncated IP address, device and browser characteristics, timestamps and page views. LinkedIn does not share any personal data with us, but only provides summarised reports on website audience and ad performance. LinkedIn also offers retargeting for website visitors so that we can use this data to display targeted advertising outside our website without identifying the user.

LinkedIn members can control the use of their personal data for advertising purposes in their account settings. To deactivate the Insight tag on our website ("opt-out"), click here.

The LinkedIn Insight Tag is used for the purpose of enabling detailed campaign reports and obtaining information about visitors to our website. As a LinkedIn Marketing Solutions customer, we use the LinkedIn Insight tag to track conversions, retarget our website visitors and gain additional information about the LinkedIn members who view our adverts.

The data is encrypted, anonymised within seven days and the anonymised data is deleted within 90 days.

5.2 Other social media

We do not use any other social network plugins on our website. We only link to our profiles on the following networks: LinkedIn, Xing, Facebook, Kununu and X (formerly Twitter). We do not collect any personal data in this respect. If you want to ensure that no data is stored by these providers in relation to your visit to our website, we recommend that you log out of them.

6. Services of the third-party provider Google

We use various services of the third-party provider Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001 ("Google") on our website

You can find Google's privacy policy at: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

There you will find further information on data processing by Google, your rights and options to protect your privacy

6.1 General information and third country transfers

We use Google's services in Basic Consent Mode. This means that we do not transmit any personal data to Google or set cookies unless you have given us your consent to do so in accordance with Section 25 (1) sentence 1 TTDSG and Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time.

To exercise your right, please deactivate the corresponding service via the "consent manager" provided on our website.

If you consent to the processing or setting of cookies as part of Google's services, you consent to both us and Google processing your data and setting cookies for the purposes stated here. Further information on the respective Google services can be found in the following paragraphs.

For the USA, the European Commission adopted its adequacy decision on 10 July 2023. Google LLC is certified under the EU-US Privacy Framework. Since Google servers are distributed worldwide and a transfer to third countries (for example to Singapore) cannot be completely ruled out, we have also concluded the EU standard contractual clauses with the provider.

6.2 Google Analytics 4 (website analysis)

We use Google Analytics 4 on our website, a web analysis service from Google that enables us to analyse your use of our website.

By default, Google Analytics sets 4 cookies when you visit the website, which are stored as small text modules on your end device and collect certain information. The scope of this information also includes your IP address, which, however, is shortened by Google by the last digits in order to prevent personal identification.

Google uses the information collected on our behalf to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity for us and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The abbreviated IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. The data collected as part of the use of Google Analytics 4 is stored for a period of two months and then deleted.

Without your consent, Google Analytics 4 will not be used during your visit to our website. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your right, please deactivate this service via the "consent manager" provided on our website. Alternatively, you can download a browser add-on HERE to deactivate Google Analytics 4.

Further legal information on Google Analytics 4 can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de&gl=de and at https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites

6.3 Use of YouTube

We also embed videos from the YouTube on our website. YouTube is operated by Google.

We use YouTube in extended data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode means that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. However, the transfer of data to YouTube partners is not necessarily excluded by the extended data protection mode. For example, YouTube establishes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network regardless of whether you watch a video.

To counter this risk, we use the so-called "two-click solution". This means that you can only watch a YouTube video when you click on it and thus actively consent to the data transfer described above.

As soon as you start a YouTube video on this website, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

Furthermore, YouTube can store various cookies on your end device after starting a video or use comparable recognition technologies (e.g. device fingerprinting). In this way, YouTube can obtain information about visitors to this website. This information is used, among other things, to record video statistics, improve user-friendliness and prevent fraud attempts.

After the start of a YouTube video, further data processing operations may be triggered over which we have no influence.

The use of YouTube is in the interest of an appealing internet presence. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR and § 25 (1) TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user's terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TTDSG. Consent can be revoked at any time.

Further information about data protection at YouTube can be found in their privacy policy at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

7. E-mail contact

7.1 If you contact us by e-mail, the data you provide (your e-mail address, possibly your name and telephone number as well as other information provided by you) will be stored by us in order to answer your enquiry. We delete this data as soon as the purpose for which it was stored no longer applies.

7.2 Data may be stored beyond that time if this has been stipulated by the European or national legislative authority in EU ordinances, laws or other regulations to which the Controller is subject. The data is also blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the regulations mentioned expires.

7.3 The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR if consent has been given. If the e-mail contact is aimed at the conclusion of a contract, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR. In all other cases, the legal basis for processing the data is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest in the processing then lies in responding to your enquiry.

8. Your rights
