The Internet pages partly use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited. Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you have requested (e.g. shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services.

We maintain an online presence on YouTube to present our company and our services and to communicate with customers/interested parties. YouTube is a service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, a subsidiary of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA.
In this respect, we would like to point out that there is a possibility that user data may be processed outside the European Union, in particular in the USA. This may pose increased risks to users in that, for example, it may be more difficult to access user data at a later date. We also do not have access to this user data. The access possibility lies exclusively with YouTube.
To advertise our products and services and to communicate with interested parties or customers, we operate a company presence on the Instagram platform.
On this social media platform, we are jointly responsible with Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland.
The data protection officer of Instagram can be reached via a contact form:
We have regulated the joint responsibility in an agreement regarding the respective obligations in terms of the GDPR. This agreement, from which the mutual obligations arise, can be accessed at the following link:
The legal basis for the processing of personal data that thereby takes place and is reproduced below is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest is in the analysis, communication and sales and promotion of our products and services.
The legal basis may also be the user’s consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO vis-à-vis the platform operator. The user can revoke this consent for the future at any time by notifying the platform operator in accordance with Art. 7 (3) DSGVO.
When calling up our online presence on the Instagram platform, data of the user (e.g. personal information, IP address, etc.) is processed by Facebook Ireland Ltd. as operator of the platform in the EU.
This user data is used for statistical information about the use of our company presence on Instagram. Facebook Ireland Ltd. uses this data for market research and advertising purposes and to create profiles of users. Based on these profiles, it is possible for Facebook Ireland Ltd., for example, to advertise users within and outside of Instagram based on their interests. If the user is logged into his account on Instagram at the time of the call, Facebook Ireland Ltd. can also link the data with the respective user account.
In the event that the user contacts us via Instagram, the user’s personal data entered on this occasion will be used to process the request. The user’s data will be deleted by us, provided that the user’s inquiry has been conclusively answered and no legal retention obligations, such as in the case of subsequent contract processing, are opposed to this.
In order to process the data, Facebook Ireland Ltd. may also set cookies.
If the user does not agree to this processing, it is possible to prevent the installation of cookies by setting the browser accordingly. Cookies that have already been stored can also be deleted at any time. The settings for this depend on the respective browser. In the case of Flash cookies, processing cannot be prevented via the browser settings, but by the corresponding setting of the Flash player. If the user prevents or restricts the installation of cookies, this may mean that not all functions of Facebook can be fully used.

The Google Analytics service is used to analyze the usage behavior of our website. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our website.
Usage and user-related information, such as IP address, location, time or frequency of visits to our website, is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, we use Google Analytics with the so-called anonymization function. Through this function, Google already shortens the IP address within the EU or EEA.

Partial processing of user data takes place on Vimeo servers in the USA.
In the event that you have given your consent for this processing, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. The legal basis may also be Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the quality improvement of our Internet presence.
If you visit a page of our website in which a video is embedded, a connection to the servers of Vimeo in the USA is established to display the video. For technical reasons, it is necessary for Vimeo to process your IP address. In addition, the date and time of your visit to our website are also recorded.
If you are logged in to Vimeo at the same time as you visit one of our websites in which a Vimeo video is embedded, Vimeo may assign the information collected in this way to your personal user account there. If you wish to prevent this, you must either log out of Vimeo before visiting our website or configure your user account with Vimeo accordingly.
For the purpose of functionality and usage analysis, Vimeo uses the web analytics service Google Analytics. Google Analytics stores cookies on your end device via your Internet browser and sends information about the use of our website, in which a Vimeo video is embedded, to Google. It cannot be ruled out that Google processes this information in the USA.
If you do not agree to this processing, you have the option to prevent the installation of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your Internet browser. Details on this can be found above under the item “Cookies”.

Google Tag Manager
For our website we use the Google Tag Manager of the company Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). This tag manager is one of many helpful marketing products from Google. Through Google Tag Manager, we can centrally incorporate and manage code sections from various tracking tools that we use on our website.
WHAT IS THE GOOGLE TAG MANAGER?
WHY DO WE USE GOOGLE TAG MANAGER FOR OUR WEBSITE?
WHAT DATA IS STORED BY GOOGLE TAG MANAGER?
The tag manager itself is a domain that does not set any cookies or store any data. It acts as a mere “manager” of the implemented tags. The data is collected by the individual tags of the various web analytics tools. The data is virtually passed through to the individual tracking tools in the Google Tag Manager and is not stored.
However, the situation is quite different with the embedded tags of the various web analytics tools, such as Google Analytics. Depending on the analysis tool, various data about your web behavior is usually collected, stored and processed with the help of cookies. For this, please read our privacy texts on the individual analysis and tracking tools that we use on our website.
In the account settings of the Tag Manager, we have allowed Google to receive anonymized data from us. However, this is only about the use and usage of our Tag Manager and not your data stored via the code sections. We allow Google and others to receive selected data in anonymized form. We thus consent to the anonymous sharing of our website data. Which summarized and anonymous data is forwarded exactly, we could not find out – despite long research. 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 our own results with those of our 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 Google’s own servers. The servers are spread all over the world. Most of them are located in America. You can find out exactly where Google servers are located at https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/?hl=de.
You can find out how long the individual tracking tools store data from you in our individual privacy 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 you can 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. You can find more information about this at https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&tid=311141511. If you want to learn more about Google Tag Manager, we recommend the FAQs at https://www.google.com/intl/de/tagmanager/faq.html.
