We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymization activated. This means that the IP address of users is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

Embedded content from other websites

Posts on this website may contain embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves exactly as if the visitor had visited the other website.

These websites may collect information about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking services, and record your interaction with that embedded content, including your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged into that website.

Our Social Media Engagement

We maintain publicly available social media profiles. Social networks (socialmedia) can generally analyze your user behavior extensively. This happens by visiting the website or a website with integrated social media content (Like button, advertising banners, etc). Thus, data protection-relevant processing operations are also triggered by visiting our social media presences.

If you visit our social media presence, the operator of this platform can assign this visit to your user account. Thus, personal data may be collected even if you are not logged in to the social media platform or do not have an account. Such data collection then takes place by recording your IP address or via cookies that are stored on your terminal device.

With this data collected in this way, the operators of the social media platforms create a user profile. Preferences and interests are stored in this profile. In this way, interest-based advertising is displayed to you inside and outside the social media presences. If you have an account on the respective social network, this interest-based advertising can be displayed on all devices on which you are or were logged in.

Please note that we cannot track all processing operations on the social media platforms. For details on their data processing procedures, please refer to the respective social media platforms.

Legal basis

Our socialmedia presences serve the purpose of ensuring the most comprehensive presence possible on the Internet (online reputation). This is a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. The analysis processes of social networks may be based on different legal bases, which are to be specified by the operator of the social networks.

Assertion of rights

Please note that despite joint responsibility with the social media platform operators, we do not have full influence on the data processing operations of these portals. This influence depends on the possibilities of the corporate policy of the respective provider.

Thus, your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability, complaint) can be asserted against us, as well as against the operator of the respective social network (eg against Facebook).

We also have no influence over the storage period of your data with the operators of the social networks. For details on this, please contact them directly, for example in their data protection statements.

YouTube and enhanced privacy

We embed videos from our YouTube channel on this website. The operator of this social media platform is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

When we embed videos, we do so in YouTube’s enhanced privacy mode. This guarantees, according to YouTube, that no information about visitors is stored on YouTube before you watch the video. Nevertheless, YouTube connects to the Google DoubleClick network even if you don’t watch the video.

As soon as you start a YouTube video on our website, a connection to YouTube’s servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

In addition, YouTube can save various cookies on your end device after starting a video. In this way, YouTube learns more about the visitors to our website. This information is used to collect video statistics, improve the user experience and prevent fraud attempts by YouTube. These cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them from your browser.

It may happen that after starting a YouTube video, data processing operations are triggered over which we have no control.

YouTube is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.
