With this data protection declaration we inform you about our data processing methods.
2 Which cookies do we use?
Most of the cookies we use are automatically deleted from your computer or mobile device at the end of the browser session (so-called session cookies).
In addition, we also use temporary or permanent cookies. These remain stored on your computer or mobile device after the end of the browser session. When you visit one of our Internet pages again, the system automatically recognizes which entries and settings you prefer. These temporary or permanent cookies remain stored on your computer or mobile device for between one month and ten years, depending on the type of cookie, and are automatically deactivated after the programmed time has elapsed. They serve to make our Internet pages more user-friendly, effective and secure.
3 What data is stored in the cookies?
No personal data is stored in the cookies we use. The cookies we use cannot be assigned to a specific person. When a cookie is activated, it is assigned an identification number.
4 How can you prevent the storage of cookies?
Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. However, you can instruct your browser not to accept cookies or to request them before accepting a cookie from an Internet page you have visited. You can also delete cookies on your computer or mobile device by using the appropriate function of your browser.
5. We use web analysis tools
In order to constantly improve and optimize our Internet presence, we use so-called tracking technologies. Web analysis tools provide us with statistics and graphics that give us information about the use of our Internet pages. The data on the use of an Internet page is transferred to the server used for this purpose. Depending on the provider of a web analysis tool, these servers may be located abroad. The transmitted IP addresses can be used to identify the visitor company.
6. How do we use social plugins?
Our Internet pages use social plugins, e.g. from LinkedIn and YouTube. The plugins are marked with the provider's logo.
If you call up our Internet pages which contain such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with the provider's computers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly to your browser by the offering site and integrated into the Internet page by this browser. By integrating the plugins, the provider receives the information that you have accessed our website. If you are logged in with the provider at the same time, the provider can assign the visit to your profile. When you interact with the plugins, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to the provider and stored there.
If you do not want the provider to collect data about you via our website, you must log out from the provider before visiting our website. Even when logged out, the providers collect anonymous data via the social plugins and set a cookie for you. This data can be assigned to your profile if you log in to the provider at a later point in time.
If you do not want the providers to collect data about you via these cookies, you can select the "Block third-party cookies" function in your browser settings. In this case, the browser will not send cookies to the server for embedded content from other providers. With this setting, other functions of our website may no longer work.
