In order to improve the quality of our web pages, we store data on the individual access to our site for statistical purposes. This data record consists of

  • the page from which the file was requested,
  • the name of the file,
  • the date and time of the query,
  • of the amount of data transferred,
  • the access status (file transferred, file not found),

Cookies

We use cookies on our websites. Cookies are small text files that can be stored and read on your end device. A distinction is made between session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and permanent cookies, which are stored beyond the individual session. Cookies can contain data that makes it possible to recognize the device used. In some cases, however, cookies only contain information on certain settings that cannot be related to a specific person.

We use session cookies on our websites. Processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO and in the interest of optimising user guidance.

You can set your browser so that it informs you about the placement of cookies. This makes the use of cookies transparent for you. You can also delete cookies at any time via the corresponding browser setting and prevent the setting of new cookies. Please note that our web pages may then not be optimally displayed and some functions may no longer be technically available.

Google Analytics

We also use permanent cookies on our websites. You will find more information on this in the next paragraph on Google Analytics.

In order to design our website according to your needs, we create pseudonymous user profiles with the help of Google Analytics. Google Analytics uses permanent cookies which are stored on your terminal and can be read by us. In this way, we are able to recognise returning visitors and count them as such. Data processing is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO or § 15 Para. 3 TMG and in the interest of finding out how often our websites have been accessed by different users.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, since we have activated IP anonymisation on this website, Google will first shorten your IP address within member states of the European Union. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and only shortened there. According to Art. 45 para. 1 DSGVO, Google's participation in the Privacy Shield represents an appropriate level of data protection. With Google Inc. (USA) has also concluded a contract for order processing. Google will therefore only use all information strictly for the purpose of evaluating your use of our website and compiling reports on website activity.

You can object to the processing by Google Analytics at any time. Please use one of the following options:

1.) You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

2.) In addition, you can prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link.

3.) You can additionally prevent Google Analytics from collecting this data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set which permanently prevents the future collection of your data when you visit this website:

Your rights as a user

When processing your personal data, the DSGVO grants you as a website user certain rights:

1.) Right to information (Art. 15 DSGVO):

You have the right to request confirmation as to whether personal data relating to you are being processed; if this is the case, you have the right to access this personal data and the information specified in Art. 15 DSGVO.

2.) Right to rectification and cancellation (Art. 16 and 17 DSGVO):
You have the right to demand the immediate correction of incorrect personal data concerning you and, if necessary, the completion of incomplete personal data.

They also have the right to demand that personal data relating to them be deleted immediately if one of the reasons specified in Art. 17 DSGVO applies, e.g. if the data is no longer required for the purposes pursued.

3.) Right to limitation of processing (Art. 18 DSGVO):
You have the right to demand the restriction of the processing if one of the conditions listed in Art. 18 DSGVO is met, e.g. if you have lodged an objection against the processing for the duration of any examination.

4.) Right to data transferability (Art. 20 DSGVO):
In certain cases, which are listed in detail in Art. 20 DSGVO, you have the right to receive the personal data concerning you in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request the transfer of this data to a third party.

5.) Right of objection (Art. 21 DSGVO):
If data is collected on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f (data processing to safeguard legitimate interests), you have the right to object to the processing at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. We will then no longer process the personal data unless there are verifiable compelling reasons for the processing worthy of protection which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the person concerned, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

6.) Right of appeal to a supervisory authority
According to Art. 77 DSGVO, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you are of the opinion that the processing of the data concerning you violates data protection provisions. The right of appeal can be asserted in particular with a supervisory authority in the member state of your residence, your place of work or the place of the presumed infringement.

Embedded YouTube videos

On some subpages, we embed YouTube videos on our website. When calling the respective sub-page, however, only a preview image is displayed, which we store locally on our web server. A connection to YouTube does not take place. Just a click on the preview image of the video will cause content to be reloaded from YouTube. In this framework, YouTube will also receive your IP address, which is technically required to retrieve the content. In principle, we have no influence on the further processing by YouTube.
