General information on data processing
When using this website, personal data may be processed. The term "personal data" under data protection law refers to all information relating to a specific or identifiable person. The IP address can also be a personal data. An IP address is assigned to every device connected to the Internet by the Internet provider so that it can send and receive data. When you use the website, we collect information that you provide yourself. In addition, certain information about your use of the website is automatically recorded by us during your visit to the website.
We process personal data in compliance with the relevant data protection regulations, in particular the GDPR and the BDSG. We only process data on the basis of legal permission. When using this website, we only process personal data with your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 a) GDPR), to fulfill a contract to which you are a party, or at your request to carry out pre-contractual measures (Art. 6 Paragraph 1 sentence 1 b) GDPR), to fulfill a legal obligation (Art. 6 Paragraph 1 sentence 1 c) GDPR) or if the processing is necessary to safeguard our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party, if not Your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms that require the protection of personal data prevail (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 f) GDPR).
1. Duration of storage
Unless otherwise stated in the following instructions, we only store the data for as long as it is necessary to achieve the processing purpose or to fulfill our contractual or legal obligations. Such statutory retention requirements may arise in particular from commercial or tax regulations.
2. Technical service providers
Unless otherwise stated in the following information, the data is processed on the servers of technical service providers who have been commissioned by us for this purpose. These service providers process the data only after explicit instructions and are contractually obliged to guarantee sufficient technical and organizational measures for data protection.
3. Processing of server log files
When our website is used for informational purposes, general information is initially stored automatically (i.e. not via registration), which your browser transmits to our server. This includes by default: browser type / version, operating system used, page accessed, the previously visited page (referrer URL), IP address, date and time of the server request and HTTP status code.
The processing takes place to safeguard our legitimate interests and is based on the legal basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 f GDPR. This processing serves the technical administration and the security of the website. The stored data will be deleted after fourteen days if there is no justified suspicion of illegal use based on concrete indications and further examination and processing of the information is necessary for this reason.
4. Contact options and inquiries
Our website contains forms you can use to send us inquiries. We process the data you have entered here for the purpose of processing your request. All data fields marked as mandatory are required to process your request. Failure to provide it means that we cannot process your request. The provision of further data is voluntary.

The legal basis results from our legal obligation to document your consent (Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 c in conjunction with Art. 7 Paragraph 1 GDPR).
We also analyze the reading behavior and the opening rates of our newsletter. For this purpose, pseudonymized usage data is collected and processed by us, which we do not merge with your e-mail address or your IP address.

8. Google Analytics
We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization. This means that the IP address of the users will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there.
The IP address transmitted by the user's browser will not be merged with other Google data. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly.
The legal basis for data processing in connection with the Google Analytics service is Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 f) GDPR and the processing serves the legitimate interest of analyzing user behavior on our website and the possible needs-based design.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly. You can also prevent the information generated by the cookie from being recorded by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

9. Google Marketing Services
We use marketing and remarketing services from Google LLC (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”) on our website. These services enable us to display advertisements in a more targeted manner in order to present users with advertisements that are tailored to their interests. Remarketing is used to show users advertisements and products for which interest has been determined on other websites in the Google network. For these purposes, a code is executed by Google when our website is called up and so-called (re) marketing tags are integrated into the website. With their help, an individual cookie, ie a small file, is saved on the user's device (comparable technologies can also be used instead of cookies). The cookies can be set by various domains, including google.com, doubleclick.net, invitemedia.com, admeld.com, googlesyndication.com or googleadservices.com. This file records which websites users have visited, which content they are interested in and which offers have been used. In addition, technical information on the browser and operating system, referring websites, visiting time and other information on the use of the online offer are stored. The IP address of the user is also recorded, whereby we inform you within the framework of Google Analytics that the IP address will be shortened within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
All user data are only processed as pseudonymous data. This means that Google does not save any names or email addresses. All displayed advertisements are therefore not displayed specifically to a person, but to the owner of the cookie. This information is collected by Google and transmitted to servers in the USA and stored there.
The Google Marketing Services we use include the online advertising program Google AdWords. In the case of Google AdWords, each AdWords customer receives a different conversion cookie. These cookies can therefore not be tracked across the websites of different AdWords customers. The information obtained with the help of the cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The AdWords customers find out the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified.
The legal basis for using this service is Article 6, Paragraph 1, Clause 1 f GDPR. If you would like to object to interest-based advertising by Google Marketing Services, you can use the setting and opt-out options provided by Google: http://www.google.com/ads/preferences.
Google is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a suitable guarantee to comply with European data protection law ( https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).
10. Integrated services and third party content
We use services and content provided by third-party providers on our website (hereinafter collectively referred to as "content").

This data processing takes place in each case to safeguard our legitimate interests in the optimization and economic operation of our website and is based on the legal basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 f GDPR.
