These data are absolutely independent of persons and are used to display the web pages correctly to you and are retrieved each time you use the Internet. The absolutely anonymous data is statistically evaluated in order to improve our service for you.

Registered users have the option to change or delete all personal data provided at any time. They can also ask us at any time for the data stored about them. If there is no legal time limit for keeping the data, it can be changed or deleted. To do so, please contact us via our contact page.

The use of the latest technology and encryption methods ensures that your data is fully protected.

Blog comments

When you sign up for our newsletter, we use the registration data exclusively for the newsletter service. Registered users may be contacted by us to be informed about changes, updates or other relevant information.

When registering, a valid e-mail address must be provided. The so-called “double-opt-in” procedure is used to check whether the registrant and e-mail match.

Deletion or blocking of data

Your personal data will be stored only as long as it is absolutely necessary to provide the specified services and it is required by law. After these periods have expired, users’ personal data will be regularly blocked or deleted.

Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics, the web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, small text files that are stored on your computer and store data about the use of our website. The data generated by the cookie about the use of our website is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored. Since IP anonymization is activated on our websites, your IP address will be shortened by Google. This applies to member states of the European Union and other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. In rare cases, it may happen that the full IP address is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and only shortened there. Google uses this information to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports for us on the use of the website and to collect other statistical data. Your IP address will never be merged with other data stored on Google. The use of cookies can be prohibited by a setting in your browser; however, this may impair the function of our website under certain circumstances. You can deactivate the collection of data by Google Analytics by means of a special add-on program for your browser (Add On).

Social Plugins

We use social plugins from the providers listed below on our website. Plugins are marked with the corresponding logo.

The service provider may receive information and personal data of our visitors through such plugins. A 2-click solution installed by us prevents the non-obvious collection and transmission of data to the service provider. Only when a social plugin is activated by you via click, the collection of information and its sending to the service provider is triggered.

What data such a plugin collects once activated and how it is subsequently used is beyond our control. In some cases, direct connections to the respective provider’s services are created and the IP address and specific usage information may be collected and used in the process. Service providers may also attempt to store cookies on your computer. You can find out how these cookies work in the privacy notices of the relevant provider. Facebook can identify you as a visitor if you are currently logged into your Facebook account.

Social media buttons of the following companies are integrated on our website:

Facebook

Instagram

Cookies

Our website uses “cookies.” Cookies are text files that are transferred from the server of a website to your computer. Certain data such as IP address, browser, operating system and internet connection are transferred in the process.

Cookies do not launch programs or transmit viruses. The information collected by cookies is used to facilitate your navigation and to optimize the display of our web pages.

Data collected by us will never be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.

The use of cookies can be prevented via settings in your browser. You will find information on how to change these settings in the explanations for your Internet browser. Individual functions of our website may not function properly if the use of cookies is deactivated.

Scalable central measurement

We use the “Scalable Central Measurement Procedure” (SZM) from INFOnline GmbH http://www.infonline.de) to collect statistical data on the use of our services.

This procedure collects anonymous measurement values. SZM range measurement uses either a cookie with the identifier “ioam.de”, “ivwbox.de”, a LocalStorage object or a signature created from various transmitted information from your web browser to recognize computer systems. IP addresses are used in anonymized form.

Data protection is always taken into account when measuring reach. This statistically determines the intensity of use and the number of users of a website. Individual users are not recognized in the process, and their identity always remains protected. The system does not send any advertising.

Web offerings that belong to the Informationsgemeinschaft zur Feststellung der Verbreitung von Werbeträgern e.V. (IVW – http://www.ivw.eu) or participate in the study “internet facts” of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Online-Forschung e.V. (AGOF – www.agof.de), the usage statistics are published monthly by AGOF and the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Media-Analyse e.V. (ag.ma – www.agma-mmc.de), as well as IVW, and can be viewed at http://www.agof.de, http://www.agma-mmc.de and http://www.ivw.eu, click here. IVW regularly reviews the SZM procedure to ensure that it is used in compliance with the rules and data protection regulations, and also publishes the measurement data.

The website of INFOnline GmbH https://www.infonline.de), the data protection website of AGOF (http://www.agof.de/datenschutz) and the data protection website of IVW (http://www.ivw.eu) provide detailed information on the SZM procedure.

If you do not agree with the data processing by SZM, you can make this known by clicking on the following links: http://optout.ioam.de and http://optout.ivwbox.de.

Google AdWords

Our website uses Google conversion tracking. If you have reached our website by clicking on a Google ad, Google Adwords stores a conversion tracking cookie on your computer. After 30 days these cookies lose their validity, website visitors are not identified. Within the 30 day span, we and Google can determine that the user initially clicked on the ad to land on our site. Google AdWords cookies are customer-specific and cannot be tracked through AdWords customers’ websites. The information collected with conversion cookies is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who use conversion tracking. This tells customers how many users have used an ad to visit their site. Personal data of the users is not transmitted.

Those who do not wish to participate in tracking can specify this in the browser settings. The automatic setting of cookies can be generally deactivated or you can set your browser so that googleleadservices.com cookies are always blocked.

Opt-out cookies must not be deleted if you wish to refuse the recording of measurement data. If you delete the cookies in your browser, all opt-out cookies must be reset.

Information, correction, blocking, deletion and objection.

You can request information about your data stored by us at any time. These can also be corrected, blocked or, if the prescribed periods of data storage for business processing have expired, deleted. Our data protection officer will help you with any relevant questions. You will find his contact details below.

Blocked data is kept in a special blocking file for control purposes. If the legal archiving obligation has expired, you can also request the deletion of the data. Within the archiving obligation, we can block your data upon request.

Changes or revocation of consent can be made by notifying us. This is also possible for future actions.

Change of the data protection regulations

Our privacy policy may be amended at irregular intervals to comply with current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services, e.g. when new offers are added. The new privacy policy will then automatically apply to your next visit.
