  • Twitter Privacy Policy: https://twitter.com/de/privacy

    Privacy

    We have written this Privacy Policy (version 20.05.2020-221126532) to explain to you what information we collect, how we use data and what choices you have as a visitor to this website in accordance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679.

    Unfortunately, it is in the nature of the matter that these explanations sound very technical, but we have tried to describe the most important things as simply and clearly as possible.

    Automatic data storage

    When you visit websites today, certain information is automatically created and stored, including on this website.

    If you are visiting our website as you are now, our web server (computer on which this website is stored) automatically stores data such as

 

  • the address (URL) of the website accessed

  • Browser and browser version

  • the operating system used

  • the address (URL) of the previously visited page (Referrer URL)

  • the host name and IP address of the device from which it is accessed

  • Date and time

    files (web server log files).

    Typically, Web server log files are stored for two weeks and then automatically deleted. We do not share this data, but we cannot rule out the possibility that this data will be viewed in the presence of unlawful conduct.

    Cookies

    Our website uses HTTP cookies to store user-specific data. In the following, we explain what cookies are and why you are being used to help you better understand the following privacy policy.

    What exactly are cookies?

    Whenever you browse the Internet, use a browser. Well-known browsers include Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Edge. Most websites store small text files in your browser. These files are called cookies.

    One thing cannot be dismissed: cookies are really useful helpers. Almost all websites use cookies. More specifically, they are HTTP cookies, as there are other cookies for other areas of application. HTTP cookies are small files that are stored on your computer by our website. These cookie files are automatically stored in the cookie folder, the "brain" of your browser. A cookie consists of a name and a value. When defining a cookie, one or more attributes must also be specified.

    Cookies store certain user data from you, such as language or personal page settings. When you visit our site again, your browser will return the "user-related" information to our site. Thanks to cookies, our website knows who you are and offers you the setting you are used to. In some browsers each cookie has its own file, in others, such as Firefox, all cookies are stored in a single file.

    There are both first-party cookies and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are created directly from our site, third-party cookies are created by partner websites (e.g. Google Analytics). Each cookie must be assessed individually, as each cookie stores different data. The expiration time of a cookie also varies from a few minutes to a few years. Cookies are not software programs and do not contain viruses, Trojan horses or other "pests". Cookies also cannot access information from your PC.

    For example, this is what cookie data might look like:

    Name: _ga
    Value:
     GA1.2.1326744211.152221126532-6
    Purpose:
    Differentiation of website visitorsExpiration
    date:
     after 2 years

    These minimum sizes should be supported by a browser:

 

  • At least 4096 bytes per cookie

  • At least 50 cookies per domain

  • At least 3000 cookies in total

    What types of cookies are there?

    The question of which cookies we use in particular depends on the services used and is clarified in the following sections of the privacy policy. At this point, we would like to briefly discuss the different types of HTTP cookies.

    You can distinguish between 4 types of cookies:

    Essential cookies
    These cookies are necessary to ensure basic functions of the website. For example, you need these cookies when a user puts a product in the shopping cart, then continues to surf on other pages and later goes to checkout. These cookies do not delete the shopping cart, even if the user closes his browser window.

    Useful cookies
    These cookies collect information about the user's behaviour and whether the user receives any error messages. In addition, these cookies also measure the loading time and behaviour of the website in different browsers.

    Target-oriented cookies
    These cookies improve the user experience. For example, you can save entered locations, font sizes, or form data.

    Advertising cookies
    These cookies are also called targeting cookies. They are used to provide the user with customized advertising. This can be very practical, but also very annoying.

    Usually, when you visit a website for the first time, you are asked which of these types of cookies you would like to allow. And of course, this decision is also stored in a cookie.

    How can I delete cookies?

    You decide for yourself how and whether you want to use cookies. Regardless of which service or website the cookies originate, you always have the option to delete, deactivate or only partially allow cookies. For example, you can block third-party cookies, but allow all other cookies.

    If you want to determine which cookies have been stored in your browser, if you want to change or delete cookie settings, you can find this in your browser settings:

    Chrome: Delete, enable, and manage cookies in Chrome

    Safari: Manage cookies and website data with Safari

    Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have placed on your computer

    Internet Explorer: Deleting and Managing Cookies

    Microsoft Edge: Deleting and Managing Cookies

    If you do not want cookies, you can set up your browser to always inform you when a cookie is to be set. This allows you to decide whether or not to allow the cookie for each cookie. The procedure varies depending on the browser. It is best to search the manual in Google with the search term "Delete cookies Chrome" or "Disable cookies Chrome" in the case of a Chrome browser.

    What about my privacy policy?

    The so-called "cookie guidelines" have been in place since 2009. It states that the storage of cookies requires the consent of you. However, there are still very different reactions to these directives within the EU countries. In Austria, however, this directive was implemented in Paragraph 96(3) of the Telecommunications Act (TKG).

    If you want to know more about cookies and don't shy away from technical documentation, we recommend https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6265, the Request for Comments of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) called the HTTP State Management Mechanism.

    Storage of personal data

    Personal data that you transmit to us electronically on this website, such as name, e-mail address, address or other personal information in connection with the transmission of a form or comments in the blog, will be used by us together with the time and the IP address only for the specified purpose, securely stored and not passed on to third parties.

    We therefore only use your personal data for communication with those visitors who expressly wish to contact and for the processing of the services and products offered on this website. We do not share your personal information without consent, but we cannot rule out the possibility that this data will be viewed in the presence of unlawful conduct.

    If you send us personal data by e-mail, i.e. away from this website, we cannot guarantee the secure transmission and protection of your data. We recommend that you never send confidential data unencrypted by e-mail.

    Rights under the General Data Protection Regulation

    According to the provisions of the GDPR and the Austrian Data Protection Act (DSG), you are entitled in principle to the following rights:

 

  • Right to correction (Article 16 GDPR)

  • Right to erasure ("Right to be forgotten") (Article 17 GDPR)

  • Right to restrict processing (Article 18 GDPR)

  • Right to notification - obligation to notify in connection with the rectification or deletion of personal data or the restriction of processing (Article 19 GDPR)

  • Right to data portability (Article 20 GDPR)

  • Right to object (Article 21 GDPR)

  • Right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling (Article 22 GDPR)

    If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or your data protection claims have otherwise been violated in any way, you can complain to the supervisory authority, which in Austria is the data protection authority whose website you can find under https://www.dsb.gv.at/.

    Evaluation of visitor behaviour

    In the following privacy policy, we inform you whether and how we evaluate data about your visit to this website. The analysis of the collected data is usually anonymous and we cannot insinuate your behaviour on this website as your person.

    You can find out more about the possibilities of contradicting this evaluation of the visit data in the following data protection declaration.

    TLS encryption with https

    We use https to transmit data in an interception-proof manner on the Internet (data protection through technical design Article 25 paragraph 1 GDPR). By using TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transmission over the Internet, we can ensure the protection of confidential data. You can see the use of this security of data transmission at the small lock icon at the top left of the browser and the use of the scheme https (instead of http) as part of our Internet address.

    Google Maps Privacy Policy

    We use Google Maps from Google Inc. on our website. Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services in Europe. With Google Maps, we can better show you locations and adapt our service to your needs. By using Google Maps, data is transferred to Google and stored on google servers. Here we want to go into more detail about what Google Maps is, why we use this Google service, what data is stored and how you can prevent it.

    What is Google Maps?

    Google Maps is an internet map service provided by Google. With Google Maps, you can search for exact locations of cities, landmarks, accommodations or businesses online using a PC, tablet, or app. If companies are represented on Google My Business, more information about the company is displayed next to the location. In order to indicate the way to get there, map sections of a location can be integrated into a website using HTML code. Google Maps shows the earth's surface as a road map or as an aerial or satellite image. Thanks to the Street View images and the high-quality satellite images, very accurate representations are possible.

    Why do we use Google Maps on our website?

    All our efforts on this site are aimed at providing you with a useful and meaningful time on our website. By integrating Google Maps, we can provide you with the most important information about various locations. You can see at a glance where we have our headquarters. The directions always show you the best or fastest way to us. You can access the route for routes by car, public transport, on foot or by bicycle. For us, providing Google Maps is part of our customer service.

    What data is stored by Google Maps?

    For Google Maps to offer its service in its entirety, the company must collect and store data from you. This includes, among other things, the search terms entered, your IP address and also the latitude or longitude coordinates. Use the route planner function to save the entered start address. However, this data storage happens on the websites of Google Maps. We can only inform you about this, but we cannot influence it. Since we have integrated Google Maps into our website, Google sets at least one cookie (name: NID) in your browser. This cookie stores data about your user behaviour. Google uses this data primarily to optimize its own services and to provide individual, personalized advertising for you.

    The following cookie is set due to the integration of Google Maps in your browser:

    Name: NID
    Value:
     188=h26c1Ktha7fCQTx8rXgLyATyITJ221126532-5
    Purpose:
    NID is used by Google to customize ads to suit your Google search. With the help of the cookie, Google "remembers" your most frequently entered searches or your previous interaction with ads. This way you always get tailored advertisements. The cookie contains a unique ID that Google uses to collect your personal settings for advertising purposes.
    Expiration date:
     after 6 months

    Note: We cannot guarantee completeness of the data stored. Especially when using cookies, changes can never be ruled out. In order to identify the cookie NID, a separate test page was created, where only Google Maps was included.

    How long and where is the data stored?

    Google's servers are located in data centers around the world. However, most servers are located in America. For this reason, your data is increasingly stored in the USA. Here you can read exactly where the Google data centers are located: https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/?hl=de

    Google distributes the data on various data carriers. This makes the data more retrieval and better protected against possible attempts at manipulation. Each data center also has special emergency programs. For example, if there are problems with Google hardware or a natural disaster paralyzes the servers, the data will almost certainly remain protected.

    Google stores some data for a specified period of time. For other data, Google only offers the possibility to delete it manually. Furthermore, the company also anonymizes information (such as advertising data) in server logs by deleting part of the IP address and cookie information after 9 and 18 months respectively.

    How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

    The automatic deletion feature of location and activity data, introduced in 2019, stores location and activity information for either 3 or 18 months, depending on your decision, and then deletes it. In addition, you can also manually delete this data from the history via the Google account at any time. If you want to completely prevent your location capture, you need to pause the "Web and App Activity" section in your Google Account. Click Data and Personalization, and then click the Activity Setting option. Here you can turn the activities on or off.

    In your browser, you can also disable, delete or manage individual cookies. Depending on which browser you are using, this always works a little differently. The following instructions show how to manage cookies in your browser:

    Chrome: Delete, enable, and manage cookies in Chrome

    Safari: Manage cookies and website data with Safari

    Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have placed on your computer

    Internet Explorer: Deleting and Managing Cookies

    Microsoft Edge: Deleting and Managing Cookies

    If you do not want cookies, you can set up your browser to always inform you when a cookie is to be set. This allows you to decide whether or not to allow it for each cookie.

    Google is an active participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, which regulates the correct and secure transfer of personal data. More information can be found on https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI. If you want to learn more about Google's data processing, we recommend the company's in-house privacy policy at  https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

    Google Fonts Privacy Policy

    On our website we use Google Fonts. These are the "Google fonts" of Google Inc. Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services in Europe.

    You don't need to sign in or enter a password to use Google fonts. Furthermore, no cookies are stored in your browser. The files (CSS, fonts/fonts) are requested via the Google domains fonts.googleapis.com and fonts.gstatic.com. According to Google, requests for CSS and fonts are completely separate from all other Google services. If you have a Google Account, you don't need to worry about your Google account information being submitted to Google while using Google Fonts. Google collects the use of CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and the fonts used and stores this data securely. We will take a look at exactly what the data storage looks like.

    What are Google Fonts?

    Google Fonts (formerly Google Web Fonts) is a directory with over 800 fonts that Google provides to your users for free.

    Many of these fonts are published under the SIL Open Font License, while others are released under the Apache license. Both are free software licenses.

    Why do we use Google Fonts on our website?

    With Google Fonts, we can use fonts on our own website, and we don't have to upload them to our own server. Google Fonts is an important building block to keep the quality of our website high. All Google fonts are automatically optimized for the web, saving data volume and being a major advantage for use on mobile devices. When you visit our site, the low file size ensures a fast load time. Furthermore, Google Fonts are secure web fonts. Different image synthesis systems (rendering) in different browsers, operating systems and mobile devices can lead to errors. Such errors can sometimes visually distort texts or entire websites. Thanks to the fast content delivery network (CDN), there are no cross-platform issues with Google Fonts. Google Fonts supports all popular browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera) and works reliably on most modern mobile operating systems, including Android 2.2+ and iOS 4.2+ (iPhone, iPad, iPod). So we use the Google Fonts so that we can display our entire online service as beautifully and uniformly as possible.

    What data is stored by Google?

    When you visit our website, the fonts are reloaded via a Google server. This external call transmits data to Google servers. In this way, Google also recognizes that you or Your IP address visited our website. The Google Fonts API is designed to reduce the use, storage and collection of end-user data to what is necessary for proper font delivery. By the way, API stands for "Application Programming Interface" and serves, among other things, as a data transmitter in the software area.

    Google Fonts securely stores CSS and font requests with Google and is therefore protected. The usage figures collected allow Google to determine how well each font is getting. Google publishes the results on internal analysis sites, such as Google Analytics. Google also uses data from its own web crawler to determine which websites use Google fonts. This data is published in the BigQuery database of Google Fonts. Entrepreneurs and developers use Google's BigQuery web service to explore and move large amounts of data.

    However, it should be borne in mind that every Google Font request also automatically transmits information such as language settings, IP address, version of the browser, screen resolution of the browser and name of the browser to the Google servers. Whether this data is also stored is not clearly known or is not clearly communicated by Google.

    How long and where is the data stored?

    Google stores requests for CSS assets for one day on its servers, which are mainly located outside the EU. This allows us to use the fonts using a Google style sheet. A style sheet is a style that allows you to easily and quickly change, for example, the design or font of a Web page.

    The font files are stored by Google for one year. Google's goal is to improve the loading time of websites in principle. When millions of web pages point to the same fonts, they are cached after the first visit and immediately reappear on all other websites visited later. Sometimes Google updates font files to reduce file size, increase language coverage and improve design.

    How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

    The data that Google stores for a day or a year cannot simply be deleted. The data is automatically transmitted to Google when the page is accessed. To delete this data early, you must contact Google Support on https://support.google.com/?hl=de&tid=221126532. In this case, you only prevent data storage if you do not visit our site.

    Unlike other web fonts, Google allows us unrestricted access to all fonts. So we can access a sea of fonts indefinitely and get the best out of our website. For more information about Google Fonts and other questions, visit https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq?tid=221126532. Although Google deals with data protection-related matters, it does not contain really detailed information about data storage. It is relatively difficult to get really accurate information about stored data from Google.

    You can also read which data is generally collected by Google and for which this data is used on https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

    Google Fonts Local Privacy Policy

    On our website we use Google Fonts of the company Google Inc. Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for the European area. We have integrated the Google fonts locally, i.e. on our web server, not on Google's servers. As a result, there is no connection to Google servers and therefore no data transfer or storage.

    What are Google Fonts?

    Previously, Google Fonts were also called Google Web Fonts. This is an interactive directory with over 800 fonts, which Google provides for free. With Google Fonts, you could use fonts without uploading them to your own server. However, in order to prevent any transfer of information to Google servers, we have downloaded the fonts to our server. In this way, we act in accordance with data protection and do not forward any data to Google Fonts.

    Unlike other web fonts, Google allows us unrestricted access to all fonts. So we can access a sea of fonts indefinitely and get the best out of our website. For more information about Google Fonts and other questions, please visit https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq?tid=221126532.

    Google Analytics Privacy Policy

    We use the analysis tracking tool Google Analytics (GA) of the American company Google Inc. on our website. Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services in Europe. Google Analytics collects data about your actions on our website. For example, if you click on a link, this action is stored in a cookie and sent to Google Analytics. With the reports we receive from Google Analytics, we can better adapt our website and service to your needs. In the following we will go into more detail about the tracking tool and inform you in particular about what data is stored and how you can prevent this.

    What is Google Analytics?

    Google Analytics is a tracking tool that is used to analyze the traffic of our website. For Google Analytics to work, a tracking code is built into the code of our website. When you visit our website, this code records various actions that you perform on our website. As soon as you leave our website, this data is sent to the Google Analytics servers and stored there.

    Google processes the data and we receive reports about your user behaviour. These may include, but are not many of the reports:

 

  • Target group reports: We get to know our users better through target group reports and know more precisely who is interested in our service.

  • Ad Reports: Ad reports make it easier for us to analyze and improve our online advertising.

  • Acquisition Reports: Acquisition Reports give us helpful information on how we can inspire more people to our service.

  • Behavioral Reports: Learn how you interact with our website. We can understand which way you are going on our site and which links you click on.

  • Conversion reports: Conversion is a process where you perform a desired action based on a marketing message. For example, if you become a buyer or newsletter subscriber from a pure website visitor. These reports help us learn more about how our marketing efforts get you. This is how we want to increase our conversion rate.

  • Real-time reports: Here we always find out immediately what is happening on our website. For example, we see how many users are reading this text.

    Why do we use Google Analytics on our website?

    Our goal with this website is clear: We want to offer you the best possible service. The statistics and data from Google Analytics help us achieve this goal.

    The statistically evaluated data show us a clear picture of the strengths and weaknesses of our website. On the one hand, we can optimize our site so that it is easier to find by interested people on Google. On the other hand, the data helps us to better understand you as a visitor. We therefore know very well what we need to improve on our website in order to provide you with the best possible service. The data also serves us to carry out our advertising and marketing measures more individually and cost-effectively. After all, it only makes sense to show our products and services to people who are interested in them.

    What data is stored by Google Analytics?

    Google Analytics uses a tracking code to create a random, unique ID that is associated with your browser cookie. This is how Google Analytics recognizes you as a new user. The next time you visit our site, you will be recognized as a "recurring" user. All collected data is stored together with this user ID. Thus, it is possible to evaluate pseudonymous user profiles in the first place.

    Labels such as cookies and app instance IDs measure your interactions on our website. Interactions are all kinds of actions you perform on our website. If you also use other Google systems (such as a Google account), data generated via Google Analytics can be linked to third-party cookies. Google does not share Google Analytics data unless we, as the website operator, approve it. Exceptions may occur if required by law.

    The following cookies are used by Google Analytics:

    Name: _ga
    Value:2.1326744211.152221126532-5

    Note: This list cannot claim to be complete, as Google also changes the choice of its cookies again and again.

    Here we show you an overview of the most important data collected with Google Analytics:

    Heatmaps: Google creates so-called heat maps. Heatmaps show exactly the areas you click on. This gives us information about where you are on our site.

    Session duration: Google refers to the amount of time you spend on our site without leaving the site. If you were inactive for 20 minutes, the session ends automatically.

    Bounce rate: There is talk of a bounce rate if you only view one page on our website and then leave our website again.

    Account creation: When you create an account or place an order on our website, Google Analytics collects this data.

    IP address: The IP address is only displayed in truncated form, so that a unique assignment is not possible.

    Location: The IP address can be used to determine the country and your approximate location. This process is also called IP location determination.

    Technical information: Technical information includes, but is not covered by your browser type, Internet service provider, or screen resolution.

    Source of origin: Google Analytics or we are of course also interested in which website or which advertisements you came to our site.

    Other data includes contact details, possible ratings, playing media (e.g. when you play a video through our site), sharing content via social media or adding to your favorites. The list does not claim to be complete and serves only as a general orientation of data storage by Google Analytics.

    How long and where is the data stored?

    Google has distributed your servers around the world. Most servers are located in America, so your data is mostly stored on American servers. Here you can read exactly where the Google data centers are located: https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/?hl=de

    Your data is distributed on different physical disks. This has the advantage that the data can be retrieved more quickly and is better protected against manipulation. Every Google data center has appropriate emergency programs for your data. For example, if Google's hardware fails or natural disasters paralyze servers, the risk of service interruption at Google remains low.

    Google Analytics has set a retention period of 26 months for your user data. Then your user data will be deleted. However, we have the option to choose the retention period of user data ourselves. We have five variants at our disposal:

 

  • Deletion after 14 months

  • Deletion after 26 months

  • Deletion after 38 months

  • Deletion after 50 months

  • No automatic deletion

    If the specified time period has expired, the data is deleted once a month. This retention period applies to your data, which are linked to cookies, user recognition and advertising IDs (e.g. cookies of the DoubleClick domain). Report results are based on aggregated data and are stored independently of user data. Aggregated data is a merging of individual data into a larger unit.

    How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

    Under European Union data protection law, you have the right to receive, update, delete or restrict information about your data. You use the browser add-on to disable Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, dc.js) to prevent Google Analytics from using your data. You can download and install the browser add-on under https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. Please note that this add-on only disables data collection by Google Analytics.

    If you want to disable, delete or manage cookies (regardless of Google Analytics), there is a separate guide for each browser:

    Chrome: Delete, enable, and manage cookies in Chrome

    Safari: Manage cookies and website data with Safari

    Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have placed on your computer

    Internet Explorer: Deleting and Managing Cookies

    Microsoft Edge: Deleting and Managing Cookies

More information can be found on https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&tid=221126532. We hope we have been able to introduce you to the most important information about the data processing of Google Analytics. If you want to learn more about the tracking service, we recommend these two links:  http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html and  https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.

    Google Analytics IP Anonymization

    We have implemented the IP address anonymization of Google Analytics on this website. This feature was developed by Google to enable this website to comply with the applicable data protection regulations and recommendations of local data protection authorities when they prohibit the storage of the full IP address. The anonymization or masking of the IP takes place as soon as the IP addresses arrive in the Google Analytics data collection network and before the data is stored or processed.

    For more information on IP anonymization, see https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2763052?hl=de.

    Google Analytics Reports on Demographics and Interests

    We've turned on the ad reporting features in Google Analytics. The reports on demographic characteristics and interests contain information on age, gender and interests. This allows us to get a better picture of our users without being able to assign this data to individuals. To learn more about the advertising features,visit https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/3450482?hl=de_AT&utm_id=ad.

    You can stop using your Google Account's activities and information under "Advertising Settings" on https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated via checkbox.

    Google Analytics deactivation link

    By clicking on the following deactivation link, you can prevent Google from collecting further visits to this website. Caution: Deleting cookies, using your browser's incognito/private mode, or using another browser will result in data being collected again.

    Google Analytics Addendum to data processing

    We have entered into a direct customer agreement with Google to use Google Analytics by accepting the "Data Processing Addendum" in Google Analytics.

    You can find out more about the addendum to data processing for Google Analytics here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/3379636?hl=de&utm_id=ad

    Google Analytics Google Signals Privacy Policy

    We have activated the Google signals in Google Analytics. For example, existing Google Analytics features (advertising reports, remarketing, cross-device reports, and interest and demographic reports) are updated to receive aggregated and anonymized data from you, provided you've allowed personalized ads in your Google Account.

    The special thing about it is that it is cross-device tracking. This means that your data can be analyzed across devices. By activating Google signals, data is collected and linked to the Google account. Google can detect, for example, when you view a product on our website via a smartphone and only later buy the product from a laptop. Thanks to the activation of Google signals, we can launch cross-device remarketing campaigns that would otherwise not be possible in this form. Remarketing means that we can also show you our offer on other websites.

    In Google Analytics, Google Signals also collects additional visitor data such as location, search history, YouTube history and data about your actions on our website. This gives us better advertising reports and more useful information about your interests and demographics from Google. This includes your age, what language they speak, where you live or what gender you belong to. Social criteria such as your profession, marital status or income are also added. All of these features help Google Analytics define groups of people or target groups.

    The reports also help us to better assess your behaviour, your wishes and interests. This allows us to optimize and adapt our services and products for you. By default, this data expires after 26 months. Please note that this data collection will only take place if you have allowed personalized advertising in your Google Account. It is always aggregated and anonymous data and never data of individual persons. In your Google Account, you can manage or delete this data.

    Google Tag Manager Privacy Policy

    For our website we use the Google Tag Manager of the company Google Inc. Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services in Europe. This Tag Manager is one of many helpful marketing products from Google. Through Google Tag Manager, we can centrally install and manage code sections of various tracking tools that we use on our website.

    In this privacy policy, we want to explain to you more precisely what Google Tag Manager does, why we use it and how data is processed.

    What is Google Tag Manager?

    Google Tag Manager is an organizational tool that allows us to centrally integrate and manage website tags through a user interface. Tags are small sections of code that record (track) your activities on our website, for example. For this purpose, JavaScript code sections are inserted into the source code of our site. The tags often come from google-internal products such as Google Ads or Google Analytics, but tags from other companies can also be integrated and managed through the manager. Such tags perform different tasks. You can collect browser data, feed marketing tools with data, include buttons, set cookies and also track users across multiple websites.

    Why do we use Google Tag Manager for our website?

    How to say so beautifully: organization is half the rent! And of course this also applies to the maintenance of our website. In order to make our website as good as possible for you and all people who are interested in our products and services, we need various tracking tools such as Google Analytics. The data collected by these tools shows us what interests you most, where we can improve our services and which people we should still show our offers. And for this tracking to work, we need to include appropriate JavaScript codes in our website. Basically, we could integrate each section of code of the individual tracking tools separately into our source code. However, this takes a relatively long time and you easily lose track. That's why we use Google Tag Manager. We can easily install the necessary scripts and manage them from one place. In addition, the Google Tag Manager offers an easy-to-use user interface and you don't need any programming skills. So we manage to keep order in our day jungle.

    What data is stored by Google Tag Manager?

    The Tag Manager itself is a domain that does not set cookies and does not store data. It acts as a mere "manager" of the implemented tags. The data captures the individual tags of the different web analysis tools. The data is smuggled through to the individual tracking tools in the Google Tag Manager and is not stored.

    However, this is quite different with the embedded tags of the various web analysis tools, such as Google Analytics. Depending on the analysis tool, various data about your web behavior are usually collected, stored and processed with the help of cookies. For this purpose, please read our data protection texts for the individual analysis and tracking tools that we use on our website.

    In tag manager's account settings, we allowed Google to receive anonymized data from us. However, this is only the use and use of our Tag Manager and not your data, which is stored through the code sections. We enable Google and others to obtain selected data in anonymized form. We therefore agree to the anonymous disclosure of our website data. Despite a long search, we were not able to find out exactly which aggregated and anonymous data would be forwarded. In any case, Google deletes all information that could identify our website. Google combines the data with hundreds of other anonymous website data and creates user trends as part of benchmarking measures. Benchmarking compares own results with those of competitors. Processes can be optimized on the basis of the information collected.

    How long and where is the data stored?

    When Google stores data, this data is stored on its own Google servers. The servers are distributed all over the world. Most are in America. Under https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/?hl=de, you can find out exactly where the Google servers are located.

    You can find out how long the individual tracking tools store data from you in our individual data protection texts for the individual tools.

    How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

    The Google Tag Manager itself does not set cookies, but manages tags from various tracking websites. In our privacy texts for the individual tracking tools, you will find detailed information on how to delete or manage your data.

    Google is an active participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, which regulates the correct and secure transfer of personal data. More information can be found on https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&tid=221126532. If you want to learn more about Google Tag Manager, we recommend the FAQs at  https://www.google.com/intl/de/tagmanager/faq.html.

    Newsletter Privacy Policy

    When you sign up for our newsletter, you provide the above personal data and give us the right to contact you by e-mail. We use the data stored in the context of the registration for the newsletter exclusively for our newsletter and do not pass it on.

    If you unsubscribe from the newsletter - you will find the link for it at the bottom of each newsletter - we will delete all data that was saved by registering for the newsletter.

    Facebook Privacy Policy

    We use selected tools from Facebook on our website. Facebook is a social media network of Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland. With these tools, we can offer you and people who are interested in our products and services the best possible deal. Below we give an overview of the various Facebook tools, what data is sent to Facebook and how you can delete this data.

    What are Facebook tools?

    In addition to many other products, Facebook also offers the so-called "Facebook Business Tools". This is the official name of Facebook. However, since the term is hardly known, we decided to call it only Facebook tools. Among them are:

 

  • Facebook pixels

  • social plug-ins (such as the "Like" or "Share" button)

  • Facebook Login

  • Account Kit

  • APIs (programming interface)

  • SDKs (collection of programming tools)

  • Platform integrations

  • Plugins

  • Codes

  • Specifications

  • Documentation

  • Technologies and services

    Through these tools, Facebook extends services and has the ability to get information about user activities outside of Facebook.

    Why do we use Facebook tools on our website?

    We want to show our services and products only to people who are really interested in them. We can use facebook ads to reach these very people. However, in order to show users suitable advertising, Facebook needs information about people's wishes and needs. In this way, information about the user behavior (and contact details) is made available to the company on our website. As a result, Facebook collects better user data and can display the appropriate advertising about our products or services to interested people. The tools thus enable tailor-made advertising campaigns on Facebook.

    Facebook calls data about your behavior on our website "event data". These are also used for measurement and analysis services. Facebook can thus create "campaign reports" on our behalf about the impact of our advertising campaigns. Furthermore, we get a better insight into how you use our services, website or products through analyses. In this way, we optimize your user experience on our website with some of these tools. For example, you can use the social plug-ins to share content on our site directly on Facebook.

    What data is stored by Facebook tools?

    By using individual Facebook tools, personal data (customer data) can be sent to Facebook. Depending on the tools used, customer data such as name, address, telephone number and IP address can be sent.

    Facebook uses this information to match the data it has of you (if you are a Facebook member). Before customer data is transmitted to Facebook, a so-called "hashing" takes place. This means that any record is transformed into a string. This is also used to encrypt data.

    In addition to the contact details, "event data" is also transmitted. "Event Data" refers to the information we receive about you on our website. For example, which subpages you visit or which products you buy from us. Facebook does not share the information it obtains with third parties (such as advertisers), unless the company has explicit permission or is legally required to do so. "Event data" can also be connected to contact details. This allows Facebook to offer better personalized advertising. After the already mentioned reconciliation process, Facebook deletes the contact details.

    In order to deliver ads in an optimized manner, Facebook uses the event data only if it has been combined with other data (which was collected by Facebook in other ways). Facebook also uses this event data for security, protection, development and research purposes. Many of this data is transmitted to Facebook via cookies. Cookies are small text files that are used to store data or information in browsers. Depending on the tools used and whether you are a Facebook member, different number of cookies are created in your browser. In the descriptions of the individual Facebook tools we go into more detail about individual Facebook cookies. General information about the use of Facebook cookies can also be found on https://www.facebook.com/policies/cookies.

    How long and where is the data stored?

    Basically, Facebook stores data until it is no longer needed for its own services and Facebook products. Facebook has distributed servers around the world where its data is stored. However, customer data will be deleted within 48 hours after it has been matched with your own user data.

    How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

    In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation, you have the right to access, rectify, transmit and delete your data.

    A complete deletion of the data will only take place if you delete your Facebook account completely. Here's how deleting your Facebook account works:

    1) On the right side of Facebook, click Settings.

    2) Then click on "Your Facebook Information" in the left column.

    3) Now click "Deactivation and deletion".

    4) Select "Delete account" now and then click on "Delete Next and Account"

    5) Now enter your password, click "Next" and then on "Delete account"

    The storage of the data that Facebook receives via our website is carried out, among other things, by cookies (e.g. for social plugins). In your browser, you can disable, delete or manage individual or all cookies. Depending on which browser you are using, this works in different ways. The following instructions show how to manage cookies in your browser:

    Chrome: Delete, enable, and manage cookies in Chrome

    Safari: Manage cookies and website data with Safari

    Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have placed on your computer

    Internet Explorer: Deleting and Managing Cookies

    Microsoft Edge: Deleting and Managing Cookies

    If you do not want cookies, you can set up your browser to always inform you when a cookie is to be set. This allows you to decide whether or not to allow it for each cookie.

    Facebook is an active participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, which regulates the correct and secure transfer of personal data. More information can be found on https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC. We hope we have brought you the most important information about the use and data processing by the Facebook tools. If you want to learn more about how Facebook uses your data, we recommend the data policies on  https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/update.

    Facebook Social Plug-ins Privacy Policy

    Our website includes so-called social plug-ins of Facebook Inc. You can recognize these buttons by the classic Facebook logo, such as the "Like" button (the hand with a raised thumb) or a unique "Facebook plug-in" label. A social plug-in is a small part of Facebook that is integrated into our site. Each plug-in has its own function. The most commonly used functions are the well-known "Like" and "Share" buttons.

    The following social plug-ins are offered by Facebook:

 

  • "Save" button

  • Like, Share, Send and Quote

  • Page plug-in

  • Comments

  • Messenger plug-in

  • Embedded posts and video players

  • Group plug-in

    On https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins, you can learn more about how to use each plug-in. We use the social plug-ins on the one hand to offer you a better user experience on our site, on the other hand because Facebook can optimize our ads.

    If you have a Facebook account or have visited facebook.com before, Facebook has already set at least one cookie in your browser. In this case, your browser sends information to Facebook via this cookie as soon as you visit our site or interact with social plug-ins (e.g. the "Like" button).

    The information received will be deleted or anonymized within 90 days. According to Facebook, this information includes your IP address, which website you have visited, the date, time and other information concerning your browser.

    In order to prevent Facebook from collecting a lot of data during your visit to our website and connecting it to the Facebook data, you must log out (log out) of Facebook during your visit to the website.

    If you're not signed in to Facebook or don't have a Facebook account, your browser sends less information to Facebook because you have fewer Facebook cookies. However, data such as your IP address or which website you visit can be transferred to Facebook. We would like to make it clear that we do not know exactly what the exact contents of the data are. However, we try to inform you as much as possible about data processing according to our current state of knowledge. You can also find out how Facebook uses the data in the company's data guideline at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/update.

    The following cookies are set in your browser at least when you visit a website with social plug-ins from Facebook:

    Name: dpr
    Value:

If you are not a Facebook user, you can always manage your usage-based online advertising on http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/. There you have the option to deactivate or activate providers.

    If you want to learn more about Facebook's privacy, we recommend your own data policies on https://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

    Facebook Login Privacy Policy

    We have integrated the practical Facebook login on our site. This allows you to easily log in with your Facebook account without having to create another user account. If you decide to make your registration via the Facebook login, you will be redirected to the social media network Facebook. There, the registration takes place via your Facebook user data. This login procedure will provide data about you or Your user behaviour is stored and transmitted to Facebook.

    To store the data, Facebook uses various cookies. In the following we show you the most important cookies that are set in your browser or already exist when you log in to our site via the Facebook login:

    Instagram Privacy Policy

    We have built in Instagram features on our website. Instagram is a social media platform of Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Rd, Menlo Park CA 94025, USA. Instagram has been a subsidiary of Facebook Inc. since 2012 and is one of Facebook's products. Embedding is the name of embedding Instagram content on our website. This allows us to show you content such as buttons, photos or videos from Instagram directly on our website. When you visit websites of our website that have integrated an Instagram function, data is transmitted, stored and processed to Instagram. Instagram uses the same systems and technologies as Facebook. Your data is processed across all Facebook companies.

    In the following, we want to give you a more detailed insight into why Instagram collects data, what data it is, and how you can largely control data processing. Since Instagram is part of Facebook Inc., we obtain our information from the Instagram guidelines on the one hand, but also from the Facebook data policies themselves.

    What is Instagram?

    Instagram is one of the most popular social media networks in the world. Instagram combines the benefits of a blog with the benefits of audiovisual platforms such as YouTube or Vimeo. You can upload photos and short videos on "Insta" (as many of the users call the platform) and edit them with different filters and also spread them on other social networks. And if you don't want to be active yourself, you can only follow other interesting users.

    Why do we use Instagram on our website?

    Instagram is the social media platform that has really gone through the roof in recent years. And, of course, we have also responded to this boom. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible on our website. That is why a varied preparation of our contents is a matter of course for us. With embedded Instagram features, we can enrich our content with helpful, fun or exciting content from the Instagram world. Since Instagram is a subsidiary of Facebook, the data collected may also be of use to us for personalized advertising on Facebook. So our ads only get people who are really interested in our products or services.

    Instagram also uses the collected data for measurement and analysis purposes. We get summarized statistics and thus more insight about your wishes and interests. It is important to mention that these reports do not personally identify you.

    What data is stored by Instagram?

    If you come across one of our sites that have Instagram features (such as Instagram images or plug-ins), your browser will automatically connect to Instagram's servers. Data is sent, stored and processed to Instagram. Whether you have an Instagram account or not. This includes information about our website, about your computer, about purchases made, about advertisements you see and how you use our offer. It also saves the date and time of your interaction with Instagram. If you have an Instagram account or are logged in, Instagram stores significantly more data about you.

    Facebook distinguishes between customer data and event data. We assume that this is exactly the case with Instagram. Customer data includes, for example, name, address, telephone number and IP address. This customer data will not be transmitted to Instagram until you have been "hashed" before. Hashing means a record is turned into a string. This allows you to encrypt the contact details. In addition, the above-mentioned "event data" will also be transmitted. By "event data" Facebook - and therefore also Instagram - means data about your user behavior. Contact details may also be combined with event data. The contact details collected will be compared with the data Instagram already has of you.

    The collected data is transmitted to Facebook via small text files (cookies), which are usually set in your browser. Depending on the Instagram features you use and whether you have an Instagram account yourself, different amount of data is stored.

    We assume that the data processing works the same with Instagram as with Facebook. This means that if you have an Instagram account or visited www.instagram.com, Instagram has set at least one cookie. If this is the case, your browser will send info to Instagram via the cookie as soon as you come into contact with an Instagram function. At the latest after 90 days (after reconciliation) this data will be deleted or anonymized. Although we've been working Instagram's data processing, we can't say exactly what data Instagram collects and stores.

    In the following we show you cookies, which are set at least in your browser when you click on an Instagram function (such as button or an Insta image). In our test, we assume that you don't have an Instagram account. If you are logged in to Instagram, of course, significantly more cookies will be set in your browser.

    These cookies were used in our test:

    Name: csrftoken
    Value:

    Purpose:
    This cookie is most likely set for security reasons to prevent forgery of requests. However, we were not able to find out more precisely.

    Purpose:
    This cookie is used for the marketing purposes of Instagram.
    Expiration date:
     after the end of the session

    Note: We cannot claim completeness here. Which cookies are set in the individual case depends on the embedded features and your use of Instagram.

    How long and where is the data stored?

    Instagram shares the information you receive between Facebook companies with external partners and with people you connect with around the world. The data processing takes place in compliance with the own data policy. Your data is distributed on Facebook servers around the world, among other things for security reasons. Most of these servers are located in the United States.

    How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

    Thanks to the General Data Protection Regulation, you have the right to information, portability, rectification and deletion of your data. In Instagram settings, you can manage your data. If you want to completely delete your data on Instagram, you need to permanently delete your Instagram account.

    Here's how to delete your Instagram account:

    First, open the Instagram app. On your profile page, go down and click on "Help section". Now you come to the company's website. On the web page, click "Manage the account" and then click "Delete your account".

    If you delete your account altogether, Instagram deletes posts such as your photos and status updates. Information shared by other people about you does not belong to your account and will therefore not be deleted.

    As mentioned above, Instagram stores your data primarily through cookies. You can manage, deactivate or delete these cookies in your browser. Depending on your browser, the management always works a bit differently. Here we show you the instructions of the most important browsers.

    Chrome: Delete, enable, and manage cookies in Chrome

    YouTube Privacy Policy

    We have built In on our website YouTube videos. So we can present you interesting videos directly on our site. YouTube is a video portal that has been a subsidiary of Google since 2006. The video portal is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page on our website that has embedded a YouTube video, your browser automatically connects to the YouTube or Google servers. Different data is transferred (depending on the settings). Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all data processing in Europe.

    In the following, we want to explain in more detail what data is being processed, why we have included YouTube videos and how you can manage or delete your data.

    What is YouTube?

    On YouTube, users can watch, rate, comment on and upload videos for free. Over the past few years, YouTube has become one of the most important social media channels in the world. In order to display videos on our website, YouTube provides a snippet of code that we have built into our site.

    Why do we use YouTube videos on our website?

    YouTube is the video platform with the most visitors and the best content. We strive to provide you with the best possible user experience on our website. And of course, interesting videos should not be missing. With our embedded videos, we provide you with other helpful content in addition to our texts and images. In addition, the embedded videos make it easier to find our website on the Google search engine. Even when we run ads through Google Ads, thanks to the data collected, Google can really only show these ads to people who are interested in our offerings.

    What data is stored by YouTube?

    Once you visit one of our sites that a YouTube video has built in, YouTube sets at least one cookie that stores your IP address and our URL. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can usually use cookies to map your interactions to your profile. This includes data such as session duration, bounce rate, approximate location, technical information such as browser type, screen resolution, or your Internet service provider. Additional data may include contact information, any reviews, sharing content via social media, or adding to your favorites on YouTube.

    If you're not signed in to a Google account or Youtube account, Google stores data with a unique identifier associated with your device, browser, or app. For example, your preferred language setting remains. But a lot of interaction data cannot be saved because fewer cookies are set.

    In the following list we show cookies that were set in a test in the browser. On the one hand, we show cookies that are set without a youTube account. On the other hand, we show cookies that are set with the account logged in. The list cannot claim completeness because the user data always depends on the interactions on YouTube.

    How long and where is the data stored?

    The data that YouTube receives and processes from you is stored on the Google servers. Most of these servers are located in America. Under https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/?hl=de, you can see exactly where Google's data centers are located. Your data is distributed across the servers. This way, the data can be retrieved more quickly and better protected against manipulation.

    Google stores the collected data for different lengths. Some data can be deleted at any time, others are automatically deleted after a limited time and others are stored by Google for a long time. Some data (such as items from My Activity, photos or documents, products) stored in your Google Account will remain stored until you delete them. Even if you're not signed in to a Google Account, you can delete some data associated with your device, browser, or app.

    How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

    Basically, you can delete data in the Google Account manually. The automatic deletion feature of location and activity data, introduced in 2019, stores information for either 3 or 18 months, depending on your decision, and then deletes it.

    Whether you have a Google account or not, you can configure your browser to delete or disable cookies. Depending on which browser you are using, this works in different ways. The following instructions show how to manage cookies in your browser:

    Chrome: Delete, enable, and manage cookies in Chrome

    Safari: Manage cookies and website data with Safari

    Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have placed on your computer

    Internet Explorer: Deleting and Managing Cookies

    Microsoft Edge: Deleting and Managing Cookies

    If you do not want cookies, you can set up your browser to always inform you when a cookie is to be set. This allows you to decide whether or not to allow it for each cookie. Since YouTube is a subsidiary of Google, there is a common privacy policy. If you would like to learn more about how your data is handled, we recommend the privacy policy under https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

    YouTube Subscribe Button Privacy Policy

    We have installed the YouTube Subscribe Button on our website. You usually recognize the button by the classic YouTube logo. The logo shows the words "Subscribe" or "YouTube" against a red background in white, and the white "Play" icon to the left. The button can also be displayed in a different design.

    Our YouTube channel always offers you funny, interesting or exciting videos. With the built-in "Subscribe" button, you can subscribe to our channel directly from our website and do not have to go to the YouTube website. We want to make it as easy as possible to access our comprehensive content. Please note that YouTube can store and process data from you.

    If you see a built-in subscription button on our site, YouTube sets at least one cookie, according to Google. This cookie stores your IP address and our URL. YouTube can also learn about your browser, your approximate location and your default language. During our test, the following four cookies were set without being logged in to YouTube:

    Note: These cookies were set after a test and cannot claim to be complete.

    If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can use cookies to store many of your actions/interactions on our website and associate them with your YouTube account. For example, YouTube gets information about how long you surf our site, what type of browser you use, what screen resolution you prefer or what actions you take.

    YouTube uses this data to improve its own services and offerings, and to provide analytics and statistics to advertisers (who use Google Ads).

    Google reCAPTCHA Privacy Policy

    Our ultimate goal is to secure and protect our website for you and for us in the best possible way. To ensure this, we use Google reCAPTCHA of Google Inc. Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services in Europe. With reCAPTCHA we can determine if you are really a human being of flesh and blood and not a robot or any other spam software. By spam, we mean any, by electronic means, unwanted information that we have unquestioned. With the classic CAPTCHAS, you usually had to solve text or image puzzles for verification. With reCAPTCHA from Google, we usually don't have to bother you with such puzzles. Here, in most cases, it is enough if you simply tick a check mark and confirm that you are not a bot. With the new Invisible reCAPTCHA version, you don't even have to tick a check mark anymore. You can find out exactly how this works and, above all, what data is used for this purpose in the course of this privacy policy.

    What is reCAPTCHA?

    reCAPTCHA is a free Captcha service from Google that protects websites from spam software and misuse by non-human visitors. This service is most commonly used when you fill out forms on the Internet. A Captcha service is a kind of automatic Turing test designed to ensure that an action is done on the Internet by a human, not a bot. In the classic Turing test (named after the computer scientist Alan Turing), a person determines the distinction between bot and human. With Captchas, this is also done by the computer or a software program. Classic captchas work with small tasks that are easy for humans to solve, but have considerable difficulties for machines. With reCAPTCHA, you don't have to actively solve any puzzles. The tool uses modern risk techniques to distinguish people from bots. Here you only have to tick the text box "I am not a robot" or with Invisible reCAPTCHA even this is no longer necessary. With reCAPTCHA, a JavaScript element is integrated into the source code and then the tool runs in the background and analyzes your user behavior. From these user actions, the software calculates a so-called captcha score. Google uses this score to calculate how likely you are to be human even before entering the captcha. reCAPTCHA or Captchas in general are used whenever bots could manipulate or abuse certain actions (such as registrations, surveys, etc.).

    Why do we use reCAPTCHA on our website?

    We just want to welcome people of flesh and blood to our side. Bots or spam software of all kinds are allowed to stay at home. That's why we put all the levers in motion to protect ourselves and offer the best possible user experience for you. For this reason, we use Google reCAPTCHA from Google. So we can be pretty sure that we will remain a "bot-free" website. By using reCAPTCHA, data is transmitted to Google to determine whether you are actually a human being. reCAPTCHA therefore serves the security of our website and subsequently also your security. For example, without reCAPTCHA, it could happen that when registering, a bot registers as many email addresses as possible in order to "spam" forums or blogs with unwanted advertising content. With reCAPTCHA we can avoid such bot attacks.

    What data is stored by reCAPTCHA?

    reCAPTCHA collects personal data from users to determine whether the actions on our website actually originate from people. This means that the IP address and other data that Google needs for the reCAPTCHA service can be sent to Google. IP addresses are almost always truncated within the Member States of the EU or other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before the data lands on a server in the USA. The IP address will not be combined with other data from Google unless you are logged in to your Google Account while using reCAPTCHA. First, the reCAPTCHA algorithm checks whether your browser already has Google cookies from other Google services (YouTube. Gmail, etc.) are placed. reCAPTCHA then sets an additional cookie in your browser and captures a snapshot of your browser window.

    The following list of collected browser and user data does not claim to be complete. Rather, they are examples of data that we believe are processed by Google.

 

  • Referrer URL (the address of the page from which the visitor comes)

  • IP address (e.g. 256.123.123.1)

  • Information about the operating system (the software that allows your computer to operate. Known operating systems are Windows, Mac OS X or Linux)

  • Cookies (small text files that store data in your browser)

  • Mouse and keyboard behavior (any action you perform with the mouse or keyboard is saved)

  • Date and language settings (which language or date you have preset on your PC is saved)

  • All Javascript objects (JavaScript is a programming language that allows web pages to adapt to the user. JavaScript objects can collect all sorts of data under one name)

  • Screen resolution (shows how many pixels the image representation consists of)

    It is undisputed that Google uses this data and analyzes it before you click on the "I am not a robot" check mark. With the Invisible reCAPTCHA version, even the ticking is omitted and the whole recognition process runs in the background. Google does not know in detail how much and what data Google stores exactly.

    The following cookies are used by reCAPTCHA: We refer to the reCAPTCHA demo version of Google under https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api2/demo. All these cookies require a unique identifier for tracking purposes. Here is a list of cookies that Google reCAPTCHA has set on the demo version:

    Expiration date:
     after 10 minutes

    Note: This list cannot claim to be exhaustive, as experience shows that Google also changes the choice of its cookies over and over again.

    How long and where is the data stored?

    By inserting reCAPTCHA, data is transferred from you to the Google server. Exactly where this data is stored is not clear, even after repeated requests. Without receiving confirmation from Google, it can be assumed that data such as mouse interaction, length of stay on the website or language settings are stored on the European or American Google servers. The IP address that your browser transmits to Google will not be merged with other Google data from other Google services. However, if you are logged in to your Google Account while using the reCAPTCHA plug-in, the data will be merged. The different data protection regulations of Google apply to this.

    How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

    If you do not want any data to be transmitted to Google about you and your behaviour, you must log out of Google and delete all Google cookies before you visit our website or use the reCAPTCHA software. As a rule, the data will be automatically transmitted to Google as soon as you visit our site. To delete this data again, you must contact Google Support on https://support.google.com/?hl=de&tid=221126532.

    Therefore, by using our website, you agree that Google LLC and its agents will automatically collect, edit and use data.

    You can learn more about reCAPTCHA on Google's web developer page on https://developers.google.com/recaptcha/. Google is going into more detail about the technical development of reCAPTCHA, but precise information about data storage and data protection-related topics is also searched in vain there. A good overview of the basic use of data at Google can be found in the in-house privacy policy on  https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

    Vimeo Privacy Policy

    We also use videos of the company Vimeo on our website. The video portal is operated by Vimeo LLC, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA. With the help of a plug-in, we can show you such interesting video material directly on our website. You may transfer certain data from you to Vimeo. In this privacy policy, we will show you what data it is, why we use Vimeo, and how you can manage or prevent your data or data transfer.

    What is Vimeo?

    Vimeo is a video platform founded in 2004 that has enabled HD-quality streaming of videos since 2007. Since 2015, it can also be streamed in 4k Ultra HD. The use of the portal is free of charge, but paid content can also be published. Compared to the market leader YouTube, Vimeo attaches great importance to high-quality content. On the one hand, the portal offers many artistic content such as music videos and short films, but on the other hand also documentaries worth knowing on a wide range of topics.

    Why do we use Vimeo on our website?

    The aim of our website is to provide you with the best possible content. As easily accessible as possible. Only when we have achieved this are we satisfied with our service. The video service Vimeo supports us to achieve this goal. Vimeo offers us the opportunity to present you high-quality content directly on our website. Instead of just giving you a link to an interesting video, you can watch the video right away. This extends our service and makes it easier for you to access interesting content. Thus, in addition to our texts and images, we also offer video content.

    What data is stored on Vimeo?

    When you visit a page on our website that has embedded a Vimeo video, your browser connects to Vimeo's servers. This leads to data transmission. This data is collected, stored and processed on the Vimeo servers. Whether you have a Vimeo account or not, Vimeo collects information about you. This includes your IP address, technical information about your browser type, your operating system, or basic device information. Furthermore, Vimeo stores information about which website you use the Vimeo service and what actions (web activities) you perform on our website. These web activities include, for example, session duration, bounce rate or which button you clicked on our website with built-in Vimeo function. Vimeo may track and store these actions using cookies and similar technologies.

    If you are logged in to Vimeo as a registered member, more data may be collected as more cookies may have already been set in your browser. In addition, your actions on our website are linked directly to your Vimeo account. To prevent this, you must log out of Vimeo while "surfing" our website.

    Below we show you cookies that are set by Vimeo when you are on a website with integrated Vimeo function. This list does not claim to be exhaustive and assumes that you do not have a Vimeo account.

    Name: player

    Expiration date:
     after 3 months

    Vimeo uses this data, among other things, to improve its own service, to communicate with you and to set its own targeted advertising measures. Vimeo emphasizes on its website that embedded videos only use first-party cookies (i.e. cookies from Vimeo itself) as long as you do not interact with the video.

    How long and where is the data stored?

    Vimeo is headquartered in White Plains, New York. However, the services are offered worldwide. The company uses computer systems, databases and servers in the United States and other countries. Your data can thus also be stored and processed on servers in America. The data will remain stored at Vimeo until the company no longer has any economic reason for storage. Then the data is deleted or anonymized. Vimeo complies with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and is therefore allowed to collect, use and transfer data from USERS from the EU to the USA.

    How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

    You always have the option to manage cookies in your browser according to your wishes. For example, if you do not want Vimeo to set cookies and collect information about you, you can delete or disable cookies at any time in your browser settings. Depending on the browser, this works a bit differently. Please note that after disabling/deleting cookies, various functions may no longer be fully available. The following instructions show how to manage or delete cookies in your browser.

    Chrome: Delete, enable, and manage cookies in Chrome

    Safari: Manage cookies and website data with Safari

    Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have placed on your computer

    Internet Explorer: Deleting and Managing Cookies

    Microsoft Edge: Deleting and Managing Cookies

    If you are a registered Vimeo member, you can also manage the cookies used in the Vimeo settings.

    Vimeo is an active participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, which regulates the correct and secure transfer of personal data. More information can be found on https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt00000008V77AAE&status=Active. You can find out more about the use of cookies at Vimeo on  https://vimeo.com/cookie_policy, information on data protection atVimeo can be found on https://vimeo.com/privacy. 

    SoundCloud Privacy Policy

    We use functions (widgets) of the social media network SoundCloud of the company SoundCloud Limited, Rheinsberger Str. 76/77, 10115 Berlin, Germany on our website. You can recognize the widgets by the well-known orange logo. By using functions such as playing music, data is transmitted, stored and evaluated to SoundCloud. In this Privacy Statement, we'll show you what your data is, why we use SoundCloud, and how you can manage or prevent your data or data transfer.

    What is SoundCloud?

    The SoundCloud social media network is an online music platform that is used to exchange and distribute audio files. On SoundCloud, musicians or podcasters offer their audio files for download. You can also use SoundCloud to integrate the audio files into other websites. And that's exactly what we did. Typical of SoundCloud are the graphic representations of the audio files in waveform and the comment bar. In this way, registered users can listen to and comment on music or podcasts at any time.

    Why do we use SoundCloud on our website?

    Our goal is to provide you with the best possible service on our website. By this we do not only mean our products or services. Overall customer service also includes how comfortable you feel on our website and how helpful our website is for you. Thanks to the embedded SoundCloud play-off function, we can deliver acoustic content directly and freely to your home. You don't have to follow any link to listen to an audio file first, but you can start right away from our website.

    What data is stored on SoundCloud?

    Once you visit one of our websites that has a widget (like or share button or play function) built in, your browser connects to a SoundCloud server. You can transfer, manage, and store data from you to SoundCloud. For example, SoundCloud will know your IP address and which page (in this case ours) you have visited when. If you have a SoundCloud account and are signed in while you browse our website, the collected data will be assigned directly to your account/account. You can only prevent this by unsubscribe from SoundCloud during your stay on our website. In addition to the above information, the cookies also store data about your user behaviour. For example, whenever you click a button, play a piece of music or pause, this information is stored in the cookies. The widget or SoundCloud is thus able to recognize you and sometimes the widget is also used to provide you with personalized content. SoundCloud uses not only its own cookies, but also third-party cookies such as Facebook or Google Analytics. These cookies are used to provide the company with more information about your behaviour on external websites and its own platform. As a website operator, we do not receive any information about your user behaviour through the cookies used by SoundCloud. The data transfer and therefore also the information about technical devices and your behavior on the website takes place between you and SoundCloud.

    In principle, the collected data remains stored on SoundCloud as long as a user account exists or it is necessary for SoundCloud to achieve the business goals. How long exactly is stored changes depending on the context and the legal obligations. Even if you do not have an account and personal data has been stored, you have the right to request the data deletion.

    How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

    If you have a SoundCloud account, you can use Settings to manage data processing or Delete your entire account. You can also manage, delete or disable cookies in your browser exactly according to your requirements. The approach always depends on your browser you are using.

    Custom Google Search Privacy Statement

    We have integrated the Google plug-in for custom search on our website. Google is the largest and most well-known search engine in the world and is operated by the US company Google Inc. Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for the European area. Custom Google Search allows you to transfer data to Google. In this privacy policy, we inform you why we use this plug-in, what data is processed and how you can manage or prevent this data transfer.

    What is custom Google Search?

    The plug-in for custom Google Search is a Google search bar directly on our website. The search takes place as on www.google.com, only the search results focus on our content and products or on a restricted search circle.

    Why do we use custom Google Search on our website?

    A website with a lot of interesting content often gets so big that you may lose track. Over time, we have also accumulated a lot of valuable material and as part of our service we want you to find our content as quickly and easily as possible. Custom Google search turns finding interesting content into a breeze. The built-in Google plug-in improves the overall quality of our website and makes it easier for you to search.

    What data is stored by the custom Google Search?

    The custom Google search only transmits data from you to Google if you actively use the Google search built into our website. This means that only when you enter a search term in the search bar and then confirm this term (e.g. click on "Enter") will your IP address be sent to Google, stored and processed there. Based on the cookies set (e.g. 1P_JAR), it can be assumed that Google also receives data on website usage. If you search for content during your visit to our website, via the built-in Google search function, and are logged in to your Google Account at the same time, Google can also assign the collected data to your Google Account. As a website operator, we have no influence on what Google does with the data collected or how Google processes the data.

    The following cookies are set in your browser if you are using the custom Google Search and are not signed in with a Google Account:

    Name: 1P_JAR
    Value:
     2020-01-27-13221126532-5Purpose: This cookie
    collects
    statistics on website usage and measures conversions. For example, a conversion occurs when a user becomes a buyer. The cookie is also used to show users relevant advertisements.
    Expiration date:
     after one month

    Name: CONSENT
    Value:
     WP.282f52221126532-9
    Purpose:
    The cookie stores the status of a user's consent to use different Google services. CONSENT is also used for security to check users and protect user data from unauthorized attacks.
    Expiration date:
     after 18 years

    Name: NID
    Value:
     196=pwIo3B5fHr-8
    Purpose:
    NID is used by Google to customize ads to suit your Google search. With the help of the cookie, Google "remembers" your entered searches or your previous interaction with ads. This way you always get tailored advertisements.
    Expiration date:
     after 6 months

    Note: This list cannot claim to be complete, as Google also changes the choice of its cookies again and again.

    How long and where is the data stored?

    Google's servers are distributed all over the world. Because Google is an American company, most of the data is stored on American servers. Under https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/?hl=de, you can see exactly where the Google servers are. Your data is distributed on different physical disks. This makes the data more retrieval and better protected against possible manipulation. Google also has appropriate emergency programs for your data. For example, if Google has internal technical problems and servers no longer work, the risk of service interruption and data loss remains low. Depending on the data involved, Google stores it for different lengths of time. Some data can be deleted by you, others are automatically deleted or anonymized by Google. However, there is also data that Google stores for longer if this is necessary for legal or business reasons.

    How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

    Under European Union data protection law, you have the right to receive, update, delete or restrict information about your data. There is some data that you can delete at any time. If you have a Google account, you can delete data about your web activity there, or choose to delete it after a certain amount of time. In your browser you also have the possibility to deactivate, delete or manage cookies according to your wishes and preferences. Here you will find instructions on the most important browsers:

    Chrome: Delete, enable, and manage cookies in Chrome

    Safari: Manage cookies and website data with Safari

    Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have placed on your computer
