General Information

Pursuant to our statutory obligations, we would like to inform you about the collection and use of your personal data.

When you use our website, personal data about you will be collected. This may happen by you entering the data yourself, for example your e-mail address. But our system also collects your data automatically, for example whenever you visit our website. This happens irrespective of the device or the software that you use to visit our website.

All data that you enter in our app is provided voluntarily; there are no disadvantages to you if you do not provide data. But without certain data, we are unable to provide services or to conclude contracts. Whenever such information is necessary, we will point it out to you.

On this website, the user’s personal data is only collected within the framework of the existing data-protection law, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The legal terms used in the text are defined in Art. 4 of the GDPR.

The GDPR allows data processing in three cases in particular:

  • in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (a) and 7 GDPR, when you have consented to us processing your data; in this Privacy Policy and in the cases of consent pursuant to Art. 4 no. 11 GDPR, we will inform you in detail and each time for what purposes and under what circumstances your data will be processed by us;
  • in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR, when processing your personal data is necessary for negotiating, concluding or performing a contract;
  • in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, if the balancing of interests leads to the conclusion that the processing is necessary to protect our legitimate interests; this means in particular our interests to analyse, optimise and secure the offers on our website – meaning primarily the analysis of user behaviour, setting up profiles for advertisement purposes and storage of access data as well as the use of third-party providers.

Inventory Data

We collect inventory data as far as it is necessary to establish, negotiate or amend a contract (including one without remuneration) between us and the user. This can be: customer data (for example name, address), contact data (for example e-mail address, phone number), service data (for example services ordered, duration, payment). Upon establishing the user relationship, we will ask you for this data (for example name, address and e-mail address) and will also tell you which of the information is required to establish the user relationship.

Usage Data

We also collect usage data to allow users to use the services on our website. These may consist of: usage information (for example visited websites or parts, duration of visit, interest in services), content data (for example data, text, images, sounds, videos entered or uploaded by you), meta data (for example identity of your device, location, IP address).

We will only combine usage data if and insofar as it is necessary for billing purposes. Otherwise, we will only put together usage data pseudonymously and only insofar as you have not objected. You may send this objection to the address indicated in the “About Us” section or the responsible authority indicated in this Privacy Policy at any time.

The legal basis for this data processing are our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR in analysing the website and your use, possibly also the statutory permission to store data as part of the negotiation of a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR.

Furthermore, our provider stores information, the so-called server log files, each time the website is used; this is information which is automatically transferred by your browser. In detail, this data consists of:

  • your IP address
  • type and version of your browser
  • host name
  • time of visit
  • the page from which you came to our page
  • name of the page opened
  • exact time of usage as well as
  • the amount of data transferred


This data will only be used for statistical purposes and do not allow us to identify you as a user.

Advertisements

Before sending you advertisements, we will ask for your explicit consent pursuant to Art. 4 no. 11 GDPR, except in cases of advertisements for similar products to the one you already acquired. This will happen in particular when you grant us consent to mail our newsletter or when you fill out a contact form.

You may withdraw your consent at any time in accordance with the subsequent section “Consent”.

INSOFAR AS WE USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR DIRECT MARKETING, YOU MAY ALSO OBJECT TO THE USE OF YOUR DATA FOR THAT PURPOSE AT ANY TIME. THIS MAY BE DONE THROUGH ANY OF OUR MEANS OF CONTACT, PARTICULARLY BY E-MAIL TO THE E-MAIL ADDRESS LISTED IN THE “LEGAL NOTICE” SECTION WITHOUT ANY FORMAL REQUIREMENTS. WE WILL THEN NO LONGER USE YOUR DATA FOR DIRECT MARKETING.

First Contact through Electronic Request

If you contact us in electronic form (for example by mail, fax, phone, messenger, etc.), we store and process the data which you have given us (for example name, contact information, content of the request). This is based on our legitimate interest in an effective communication with customers in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR and, as far as it concerns a request to enter into or to perform a contract, also with Article 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR.
We will only pass on this data to third parties as far as required for the performance of the contract (in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR), by the overwhelming interest in effective services (in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR) or based on your consent (in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR) or if there is another legal permission or obligation.
You may ask us at any time and without any cost to provide information about the purpose of the processing, the origin and the recipient, if any, of your data. You may also request that we correct, delete or limit the processing of your personal data. You may object against the (further) processing of your data at any time and you have a right for the data to be made transferable as well as the right to file a complaint with the competent supervisory agency.
In general, your data will only remain stored as long as required by the purpose of the respective data processing. A longer storage is an option, in particular when required in order to pursue our rights, for other legitimate interests of ours or when there is a statutory duty to keep the data longer (for example record-keeping under tax law, statute of limitations).

Consent

Whenever we ask you for your consent for the processing of your data, we will inform you in clear language and in an easily accessible way about the cases for which you will be granting your consent. Any consent that we ask you for is voluntary. Any advantage that you wish to gain by granting consent is also available without consent; simply ask us.

Regarding any consent, you have the right to revoke any consent given to us for the processing of your personal data at any time. You just need to contact us without any particular formal requirement, for example through our contact form, an e-mail to the e-mail address indicated in the “About Us” section or a link to unsubscribe (if offered by us). Your withdrawal has no effect on the legality of the data processing carried out up to that point.

Storage Period

Generally, your data will only remain stored as long as required by the purpose of the respective data processing. Storage beyond that is possible in particular if it is still required for pursuing our rights or for other legitimate interests of ours.
For your inventory data which were necessary to perform a contract (including one without remuneration), this means that we store this data until the complete performance or termination of the contractual relationship plus the limitation period (which is generally 2 or 3 years) plus an adequate extra time for potential interruptions of the limitation period.
For your usage data which was collected in the course of your use of the website, this means that we will store it only for the time still required for the proper functionality of our website and as long as we still have a legitimate interest. Statistical information will be primarily stored by us in pseudonymous form.
Beyond that, we still store your data for as long as we are required to do so by law. This concerns in particular the tax-law requirements to keep records, usually for 6 or even 10 years.

Upon opening the website, we have asked you to consent to the storing of certain cookies which will be placed while you visit our website. Based on your consent pursuant to Art 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR, our website thus uses cookies, so that our offer can be used in a better, more effective and more secure way.
Cookies are text files that are stored on your computer and which store certain data about your user behavior on our page, so that certain features or offers can be made available to you based on your previous use. These can be “session cookies”, which are automatically deleted when you leave our website. Other cookies are stored on your computer permanently until you delete them. That allows us to recognize your browser when you visit our website again and to provide you with features or offers according to your previous usage.

Your browser allows you to prevent the use of cookies in general or in specific cases. Please check the instructions for your browser to find out more about this. You can also delete cookies following these instructions which we have listed for you:

Transfer of data

Transfer to Third Parties

We dislike spam as much as you do. We will therefore not transfer your data to third parties, unless permitted by law.

Transfer of customer data may either

  • be required for the performance of a contract and in that case be permitted according to Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR, or
  • be permitted based on our legitimate interest in an effective service structure pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, or
  • covered by your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR, or
  • become necessary if we will be legitimately asked by a government or an agency to hand over your data pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (c) GDPR.


If your data are transferred to third parties, this is mentioned in this privacy policy.

Transfer to other countries, particularly USA

Our website uses external providers located outside of the EU for different features. In particular, the use of cookies, active Java scripts and other technology can lead to processing and storage of your data outside of the EU. But we will not transfer your data to a third country, unless the EU Commission has determined that there is a similar level of data protection as in the EU or unless you have provided us with your informed consent or we have agreed on the standard contractual clauses for the protection of your data with the provider. Regarding the USA, the Privacy Shield Agreement – see https://www.privacyshield.gov/welcome – has re-established sufficient data protection under certain conditions.

You will find more information about your rights in the case of each of the data transfers to the USA mentioned subsequently at https://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/document/citizens-guide_en.pdf.

Users‘ Rights

You may request us anytime to provide information about the personal data stored about you free of charge. To avoid misuse, this will require personal identification.

Deletion, Correction, Limitation

You may at any time demand from us that we correct (or complete) incorrect data as well as a limitation of the processing of data or deletion of your data. This applies in particular if the reason for processing the data is no longer valid, if a required consent has been revoked and there is no other legal basis or if our data processing is unlawful. We will then correct, block or even delete your personal data without delay as far as permitted by law.

Objection

The right to object to advertisement is governed by our text regarding consent:


Regarding any consent, you have the right to revoke any consent given to us for the processing of your personal data at any time. You just need to contact us without any particular formal requirement, for example through our contact form, an e-mail to the e-mail address indicated in the “About Us” section or a link to unsubscribe (if offered by us). Your withdrawal has no effect on the legality of the data processing carried out up to that point.

Data Transfer

You may request us to transfer the data stored about you in machine-readable form.

Complaint

If you feel that our data processing has violated any of your rights, you may file a complaint with the competent regulatory agency (here you find a list of the agencies).

Changes to the Privacy Policy

If and when factual or legal reasons will compel us to amend the Privacy Policy, we will update this page accordingly. This will not change the consent provided by the user.

Data Entry

Encryption of Data Entry

When you enter data on our website, whether in a contact form, during the registration process, when you log in or for payment purposes, the website, where you enter the data, is encrypted. Thus, third parties can not read what you enter. You will recognise the encryption by the lock symbol in your browser and by the URL beginning with “https“ instead of “http“.

Contact Forms

General contact form

When you fill out a contact form or when you send us an e-mail or another electronic message, your information will be stored for the processing of the request, for possible follow-up questions or for other related questions and will only be used to follow up with the request.

Your data will be transferred in an encrypted manner, preventing third parties from reading your data while it is being entered.

Basis for this storage is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR, which you grant us by filling in the contact form or by your other requests. You may revoke this consent at any time, you just need to contact us without any particular formal requirement (for example in the contact form or by e-mail). This withdrawal has no effect on the legality of the data processing that has occurred up to that point.

Your data remains stored for as long as the processing of the request requires, in particular as long as the storage is still necessary to perform the contract, to pursue our rights or for our other legitimate interests or we are compelled by law to keep your data stored (for example based on tax-law requirements to maintain files).

Shop

On our shop page, you find a contact form, through which you may request a specific offer for our services. We will ask for your e-mail address, your company name and the scope of your business, so we can prepare an offer that will serve your specific interests.

Your data will be entered in an encrypted manner, so that third parties cannot read your data while being entered.

The legal basis for this storage is our legitimate interest in communication with interested users in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR and in case of contractual requests also the storage of contractual data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR.

These data remain saved until you will terminate your access by sending an e-mail to the e-mail address listed in the "About Us" section. After that, they will remain stored in connection with the necessary performance of the contract (see the section on user/contract data).

Return Call

On our service page, you can ask for a call from one of our customer service agents.
We will ask for
– your first name, because we like to address your personally,
– your phone number, so we can call you, and
– your e-mail address, because we will e-mail you to confirm your request.

Your data will be entered in an encrypted manner, so that third parties cannot read your data while being entered.

The legal basis for this storage is our legitimate interest in communication with interested users in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR and in case of contractual requests also the storage of contractual data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR.

We will only use this data for your specific request and will save it for 6 months after the request has been completed, so we can refer to the results already achieved in the case of subsequent service requests.

Online calendar

Calendly

Based on our legitimate interest in a technologically perfect online offering and its design and optimization in an economically efficient manner pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, we use the calendar of Calendly https://calendly.com/de, a service offered by Calendly LLC, 1315 Peachtree St NE, Atlanta, GA 30309, USA, to make appointments.

Thus, the data you enter while making an appointment will be passed to Calendly. Your data will be transmitted to the USA in that process. But Calendly has subjected itself to the Privacy Shield framework. You can find more information about your rights thereunder at http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/document/citizens-guide_en.pdf .
You can find more information about the privacy policy of Calendly at https://calendly.com/de/pages/privacy. We have also entered into a contract on data processing with Calendly, according to which Calendly will only process your data according to our instructions.

In order to arrange an appointment, we ask for the data requested in the Calendly form and we collect your IP address at the time of entry. This data will not be passed to third parties by us or by Calendly and only serves statistical purposes and for arranging appointments. Data entry will be encrypted, preventing third parties from reading your data while you enter it. You will find more information about the data collected by Calendly and how they process your data in the privacy policy of Calendly .

Your data will remain stored as long as the reason for the appointment is still relevant, in particular as long as the storage is still necessary to perform the contract, to pursue our rights or for other legitimate interests of ours or as long as we are required by law to keep your data stored (for example by tax-law requirements on the keeping of records). If the appointment passes without any consequences, your data will be deleted.

Blog / Comments

Comments

If you comment something on our page, we will save your IP address to make sure that only lawful comments will be published. After reviewing and allowing the comment by us, this data will be deleted. We will also save your comment as well as the information entered together with it (for example user name or e-mail address).

Basis for this storage is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR, which you provide to us by filling in the comment field. You may revoke this consent at any time, you just need to contact us without any particular formal requirement (for example by unsubscribing, contact form or e-mail). This withdrawal has no effect on the legality of the data processing that has occurred up to that point.

Your data remains stored for as long as the comment is saved, for as long as required for us to pursue our rights or for our other legitimate interests or for as long as we are required by law to keep your data.

Newsletter

Mail Chimp

If you subscribe to the newsletter offered on our website, we will inform you in detail about the information you will receive, which of your data will be stored and what it will be used for. We will not pass on your data to third parties and we will only use it to mail the newsletter.

We will only mail you the newsletter if you have given us your prior permission. To that purpose, you will receive an e-mail from us with a link and further instructions and our request for your consent. By clicking on this link, you declare your consent to receiving the newsletter and our advertising.

Because we are legally obligated to record your permission as part of the so-called double opt-in, your order of the newsletter, the mailing of our e-mail of consent and your consent by clicking on the link will be recorded and saved with location and time as well as with your IP address.
The basis for the storage is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR, which you grant to us by registering for the newsletter. You may revoke this consent at any time, you just need to contact us without any particular formal requirement (for example through the contact form or an e-mail or the unsubscribe button in each e-mail). This withdrawal has no effect on the legality of the data processing that has occurred until that point.

For mailing the newsletter, we use (based on our legitimate interest in a technologically perfect processing of our customer information and analysis) the provider MailChimp (Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA) from the USA.
This means, your data will be exportet to the USA, but MailChimp is registered with Privacy Shield and must adhere to EU data protection rules.

In our newsletter, we will also explicitly ask you to provide your consent to transferring data to MailChimp and to the USA. You will declare that consent by clicking on the link, but you may revoke it at any time. For the handling of your data at MailChimp, we refer you to the Privacy Policy of MailChimp at: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/.
MailChimp will only use your data for mailing the newsletter and for evaluating that mailing on our behalf. In addition to that, MailChimp will only use your data to improve their own service. But MailChimp will not use the data to contact you directly or to pass on your data to third parties.

The mails used by MailChimp contains a “web beacon“, which will inform MailChimp about the opening of the newsletter and/or the clicking on a link contained therein by you. As part of that process, information regarding your browser, your location and your IP address will be transmitted to MailChimp. This information will be used to optimise our communication with you.

Our newsletter provider will also use this data for purposes of analysis and optimisation of their own service, but only in pseudonymised form (meaning that your identification is not possible). But your data will not be used by the provider to contact you directly.

Your data will remain stored for as long as you are stored in our mailing list, the storage is required to enforce our rights or it is necessary for our legitimate interest or we are required by law to keep your data.

Social Media

Social Media Plugins

General information

Social media plugins normally lead to the IP address of each visitor to a page being collected by theses services immediately and the users having their subsequent browsing history recorded. This may even happen if you do not click on the button.

To prevent this, we use the Shariff method. Thus, our social media buttons only establish the direct contact between the social network and you only once you click on the respective share button. If you are already registered with a social network, Facebook and Google+ do not require a new window for this. Twitter will show a pop-up window, in which you can still edit the text of the tweet.

Thus, you can publish our content in social networks without them being able to put together complete browsing profiles. The Shariff method is already being used by many websites in order to protect their users.

But, at the latest, when you follow the link to the social media site, your data will be broadcasted to that site. The social media site will normally store a cookie in your browser and to your account information there, especially, if you are logged into your social media account on the site. The social media site can analyse your use of the platform and your browsing habits and will use these for targeting advertisements based on your interests. That can lead to ads being shown to you when browsing in- and outside of the social media site. Please inform yourself about the use of your data on these sites and use them only, when you agree to that use of your data, that happens on that social media site, in particular, when you are not using that social media site for the first time. We have added links to all the privacy policies of the social media site for your information.

Facebook

Based on our legitimate interest in a technologically perfect online offering and its design and optimisation in an economically efficient manner pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, we use plugins of the social network of Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA. Due to the Shariff method, Facebook will only learn your IP address and your visit to our website, once you will have clicked on the button. If you confirm the plugin while being logged in at Facebook, Facebook may attribute your use to your user account.

That way, your data will be transferred to the USA, Facebook is registered with Privacy Shield and must adhere to the EU data protection rules.

The collection and use of your data which is then possibly carried out by Facebook is beyond our knowledge or control. You will find further information in Facebook’s privacy policy at http://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php.

Regarding the general approach to cookies and their deactivation, we refer you to our general information in this Privacy Policy.

Ste. 200 Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. With the Shariff method, LinkedIn will only learn of your IP address and your visit to our website once you have clicked on the button. If you confirm the plugin while being logged into LinkedIn, LinkedIn may attribute your use to your user account.

The data collected by Linkedin may be transferred by Linkedin to countries outside of the EU, in particular to the USA. LinkedIn is registered with Privacy Shield and must adhere to EU data protection rules.

We have neither knowledge of, nor any influence on the possible collection and processing of your data by LinkedIn.

One Cumberland Place, Fenian Street, Dublin 2, D02 AX07 IRELAND. Due to the Shariff method, Twitter will only learn your IP address and your visit to our website once you will have reconfirmed the retweet button.

That way, your data may be transferred to the USA, Twitter is registered with Privacy Shield and must adhere to the EU data protection rules.

The collection and use of your data which is then possibly carried out by Twitter is beyond our knowledge or control. You may find more information in Twitter’s privacy policy at https://twitter.com/privacy?lang=en.

Xing

Based on our legitimate interest in a technologically perfect online offering and its design and optimisation in an economically efficient manner pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, we use the Xing share plugin of the social network Xing, XING AG, Dammtorstrasse 30, 20354 Hamburg, Germany.

Website Analysis

Matomo

Based on our legitimate interest in a technologically perfect online offering and its design and optimisation in an economically efficient manner pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, we use the open-source programme Matomo, a web analysis tool.

To optimise the offered website, Matomo will place cookies. Cookies are text files which are stored on your computer and which transmit information about the use of the page, including the user's shortened IP address, to the provider.

Our Social Media Fan Page(s) - General Information

Beside our website, we also use fan page(s) on social media platforms. Above, we have already informed you about the data processing on our website and we have in particular made sure that the fact alone that you access our website is not yet forwarded to the social media platform. Following the ECJ ruling dated 5 June 2018 about social media presences, we want to inform you about the data processing during your visit to our social media fan page(s):

On the basis of our legitimate interest in a timely customer communication pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR as well as for advertising and public relations purposes, we present ourselves and our offers on social media fan page(s).

Our social media fan page(s) usually can be accessed online independently of you having a user account with the relevant platform or not. But in either case, your data will be processed by the social media platform.

Each time the social media platform is accessed, your IP address will be collected and stored. Usually, a cookie will also be placed on your page, which will save your visit and further data about your visit to the social media platform.

If you are logged in with the social media platform, your visit will also be spotted by a cookie or through other technological means and will be attributed to your user account. Thus, the social media platform is usually able to analyse your user behaviour. In this process, a user profile with your interests is generated, which the social media platform will use to provide you with a user experience tailored to your interests, in particular advertisement tailored to your interests within and outside of the social media platform – even across different devices, if applicable. Your data may also be used for market research. For the details, we refer you to the following privacy policies of the social media platform(s) used by us.

We can usually also use the data of the social media platform in order to allow you to use our fan page in accordance with your interests or to approach you with advertising.

When you interact with our fan page and if you are logged in with the relevant social media platform, according to the social media page's terms of use, we can usually also recognise your user profile and see your content.
If you do not want this, we point you to our explanations about cookies above, with general information about cookies and their deactivation. There, we have laid out in general terms how you can prevent or limit cookies being stored on your devices. Further information about the respective social media platform can be found hereinafter.

According to the aforementioned ECJ ruling dated 5 June 2018, we are always jointly responsible for our social media fan page(s) together with the relevant social media platform. This means that you may also exercise your general rights, which we have listed in detail above under the heading “Users' Rights”, against us. To that purpose, we refer you to our contact details at the beginning of this Privacy Policy. Please keep in mind, though, that we have no conclusive knowledge of the exact scope of the processing of your data by the social media platform and have even less influence on it. Therefore, we kindly ask you to contact the relevant social media platform in the first place regarding your rights.

We generally leave your data on the social media platform and do not import it onto our server. But if that should occur, our general information regarding the storage period will apply.

Further information about the processing of your data and the storage period on the social media platform can be found in the respective privacy policy of the social media platform, which we have listed hereinafter.
