2. Processing of personal data during use of our website
2.1. Every time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from your computer system. These data are stored in the log files of our system. The aforementioned data are not stored together with other personal data. We collect the following data:
• Information regarding the browser type and version used

• Your IP address
• Date and time of access
• Websites from which your system accesses our website
• Websites accessed by your system via our website
2.2. Our system must temporarily store the IP address to permit delivery of a website to your computer. For this purpose, your IP address must be stored for the duration of the respective use of the website. Storage in log files thus serves the website’s functionality. We also use these data to improve our website and secure our information-technology systems. The data are not used for marketing purposes in this context. The legal basis for temporary storage of data and of log files is Art. 6 (1) (f) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter: ‘GDPR’).
2.3. The data are stored until the purpose for their collection has been achieved. If data are required to provide the website, then there is no further need to store them once the respective session has come to an end. Your data are then automatically deleted. If the data have been stored in log files, this will be undertaken after seven days’ time at the latest. If the aforementioned data remain in storage, however, your IP address will be deleted or altered to prevent any assignment of the Internet connection calling up the site. Collection of data for provision of the website and the storage of data in log files are absolutely necessary for operation of the website.
2.4. If we evaluate your usage behaviour on our website beyond this, we use your data exclusively in anonymised or pseudonymised form to improve the operability of the website and the usage experience for our visitors. ‘Pseudonymised’ means that characteristics that permit association with a unique individual are removed and replaced by a new value. Anyone who is not privy to this value will not be in a position to draw conclusions about the individual to whom your individual data apply. For details, please refer to Section 3 of this Privacy Statement.

3.11. On our website, we use cookies by Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter: ‘Google’). As a rule, the information the cookie generates about your use of the online offer is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The following applies for Google Analytics:
• Commissioned by us, Google will use this information to analyse use of our online offer, to compile reports about activities within this online offer, and to provide us with additional services relating to use of this online offer and Internet usage. The data processed can be used to generate pseudonymous usage profiles.

Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will not merge the IP address transmitted by your browser with other data.

3.12. Our website also uses Google AdWords, an online advertising tool by Google, for so-called ‘remarketing’. This allows for customised advertising based on your browsing habits on other websites in the Google Display Network (Google, so-called ‘Google Ads’ and other websites). Your browsing behaviour on our website will be analysed to permit us to present you with advertising that suits your interests during visits to other websites as well.

Our website uses the "Custom Audiences Pixel" from Facebook Inc,1 Hacker Way, 94025 Menlo Park, USA or, if you are an EU resident, Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook"). Custom Audiences Pixel aims to present interest-based advertising to visitors to our website when they access the Facebook social network. For this purpose, a Facebook pixel has been incorporated into our website. This pixel establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers when you visit our website. Information that you have visited our website is transmitted to a Facebook server and Facebook assigns this information to your personal Facebook user account.

4. Social networks
4.1. Our websites contain simple links to the following social networks (hereinafter: ‘social networks’):
• Facebook (operator: Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA)
• Instagram: (operator: Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA)
• YouTube (operator: Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA)
4.2. Data are exchanged with the above-mentioned social media operators only if the corresponding symbol button is clicked (e.g. the ‘f’ icon for Facebook or the camera icon for Instagram). Clicking such a symbol button opens a page of the corresponding social media operator in a pop-up window. There, you may publish information about our products in compliance with the rules of the respective social media operator.
4.3. If you click on a link to a social network, it creates a connection to the servers of the social networks. We have no influence on the scope of the data that the respective social network collects.
4.4. If you are already logged in to a social network during your visit to our web pages, the operator of this social network may conceivably be able to associate the visit with your personal account as soon as you click on the link to the social network.
4.5. If you are not a member of a social network, there is still a possibility that the social networks will receive and store your IP address after the link has been clicked, along with information on the browser and operating system you are using. For the scope and purpose of data collection, the processing and use of the data by social networks, and information about rights and settings for the protection of your privacy, please consult the privacy policies of the respective social network. These can be found at the following addresses:
• Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php
• Instagram: https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388
• YouTube: http://www.google.com/intl/de/privacy/
4.6. If you are a member of a social network and would like to limit the collection of data via our websites as well as the merging of your user data with the data stored on your social network, you should log out of the social network before visiting our websites. We encourage the use of appropriate add-ons for the browser you use (e.g. the so-called ‘Facebook Blocker’). We cannot accept any liability for the effectiveness of such solutions, however.

5. Contact
5.1. You are welcome to contact us via e-mail.
5.2. In case of contact, you may object to the storage of your personal data at any time. To do so, please simply send a message to the contact data shown above. In these cases, however, processing of your message will not be possible.
5.3. The basis in law for the processing of your data in this connection is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, as there is a legitimate interest in doing so on our part. If contact is made via form or e-mail in connection with conclusion of a contract, then Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR provides an additional legal basis for processing.
5.4. We process personal data from e-mails exclusively for purposes of dealing with your contact with us. To this extent, the data are not transferred on to third parties. We delete your data as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. For personal data from the input screen of the contact form, and for data that has been transmitted via e-mail, this case occurs if the respective correspondence with you has been completed. The correspondence is deemed to have been completed if it is evident from the circumstances that the matter at hand has been conclusively resolved.
5.5. If the data are required for performance of a contract or for carrying out pre-contractual measures, the data may be deleted prematurely only as permitted by contractual or legal obligations. The storage periods that apply here must be determined individually for the respective contracts and contracting parties.

We work with service providers whom we have commissioned for the processing of certain data. This is done exclusively consistently with the applicable privacy law. Specifically, we have concluded with our service providers – where required by law – agreements on data processing by commission that comply with the requirements of Art. 28 GDPR and that instruct the service providers in the proper handling of these data. By means of careful selection and regular control, we ensure that our service providers take all organisational and technical steps required to protect your data.
