Privacy policy

We have drawn up this Privacy Policy (version 23.10.2020-311224422) to explain to you, in accordance with the requirements of General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 what information we collect, how we use data and what choices you as a visitor to this General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 Website.

Disely, it is in the nature of things that these explanations sound very technical, but we tried to describe the most important things as simply and clearly as possible when creating them.

Automatic data storage

If you visit websites today, certain information is automatically created and stored, including on this website.

If you visit our website as you are now, our web server (computer on which this website is stored) automatically stores data such as

  • the address (URL) of the website accessed
  • browser and browser version
  • the operating system used
  • the address (URL) of the previously visited page (referrer URL)
  • the host name and IP address of the device from which access is made
  • date and time

in files (web server log files).

In most cases, web server log files are stored for two weeks and then automatically deleted. We do not pass on this data, but cannot rule out the possibility that this data may be viewed in the event of unlawful conduct.

Cookies

Our website uses HTTP cookies to store user-specific data.
In the following, we explain what cookies are and why they are used so that you can better understand the following privacy policy.

What exactly are cookies?

Every when you browse the Internet, you use a browser. Well-known browsers include Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge. Most websites store small text files in your browser. These files are called cookies.

One thing cannot be dismissed out of hand: Cookies are really useful helpers. Almost all websites use cookies. More precisely, they are HTTP cookies, as there are also other cookies for other areas of application. HTTP cookies are small files that are stored on your computer by our website. These cookie files are automatically placed in the cookie folder, the "brain" of your browser. A cookie consists of a name and a value. When defining a cookie, one or more additional attributes must be specified.

cookies store certain user data about you, such as language or personal page settings. When you visit our site again, your browser transmits the "user-related" information back to our site. Thanks to cookies, our website knows who you are and offers you your usual default setting. In some browsers, each cookie has its own file, in others, such as Firefox, all cookies are stored in a single file.

There are both first-party and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are created directly by our site, third-party cookies are created by partner websites (e.B. Google Analytics). Each cookie must be evaluated individually, as each cookie stores different data. The expiration time of a cookie also varies from a few minutes to a few years. Cookies are not software programs and do not contain viruses, Trojans or other "pests". Cookies also cannot access your PC's information.

So, for example, cookie data can look like:

  • Name: _ga
  • Experience: 2 years
  • Use: Differentiation of website visitors
  • Example value: GA1.2.1326744211.152311224422

A browser should support the following minimum sizes:

  • A cookie should be able to contain at least 4096 bytes
  • At least 50 cookies should be able to be stored per domain
  • A total of at least 3000 cookies should be able to be stored

Which types of cookies are there?

The question of which cookies we use in particular depends on the services used and is clarified in the following sections of the privacy policy. At this point, we would like to briefly discuss the different types of HTTP cookies.

You can distinguish between 4 types of cookies:

Unsinsiteally necessary cookies
These cookies are necessary to ensure basic functions of the website. For example, these cookies are needed when a user places a product in the shopping cart, then continues to surf on other pages and later goes to the checkout. These cookies do not delete the shopping cart, even if the user closes his browser window.

Functional cookies
These cookies collect information about user behavior and whether the user receives any error messages. In addition, these cookies are also used to measure the loading time and the behavior of the website on different browsers.

Target-oriented cookies
These cookies ensure a better user experience. For instance entered locations, font sizes or form data are saved.

Advertising cookies
These cookies are also called targeting cookies. They serve to provide the user with individually adapted advertising. This can be very practical, but also very annoying.

Usually, when you visit a website for the first time, you will be asked which of these types of cookies you want to allow. And of course, this decision is also stored in a cookie.

How can I delete cookies?

How and whether you want to use cookies, you decide for yourself. Regardless of which service or website the cookies originate from, you always have the option of deleting cookies, only partially allowing or disabling them. For example, you can block third-party cookies but allow all other cookies.

If you want to know which cookies have been stored in your browser when you want to change or delete cookie settings, you can find this in your browser settings:

Chrome: Delete, enable and manage cookies in Chrome

Safari: Managing cookies and website data with Safari

Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have placed on your computer

Internet Explorer: Delete and manage cookies

Microsoft Edge: Delete and manage cookies

If you do not want cookies in principle, you can set up your browser so that it always informs you when a cookie is to be set. This allows you to decide for each individual cookie whether you allow the cookie or not. The procedure varies depending on the browser. It is best to search for the instructions in Google with the search term "Delete cookies Chrome" or "Disable cookies Chrome" in the case of a Chrome browser or exchange the word "Chrome" for the name of your browser, e.B. Edge, Firefox, Safari.

What about my privacy?

Since 2009, there have been the so-called "Cookie Guidelines". It states that the saving of Cookies require your consent. Within the EU countries, however, there are still very different reactions to these directives. In Germany, the Cookie Policy has not been transposed as national law. Instead, the implementation of this directive was largely carried out in § 15 (3) of the Telemedia Act (TMG).

If you want to know more about cookies and are not afraid of technical documentation, we recommend https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6265, the Request for Comments of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) called "HTTP State Management Mechanism".

Storage of personal data

Personal data that you transmit to us electronically on this website, such as name, e-mail address, address or other personal information in the context of the transmission of a form or comments in the blog, will only be used by us together with the time and the IP address for the purpose specified, stored securely and will not be passed on to third parties.

We therefore only use your personal data for communication with those visitors who expressly request contact and for the processing of the services and products offered on this website. We do not pass on your personal data without consent, but we cannot rule out the possibility that this data will be viewed in the event of unlawful conduct.

If you send us personal data by e-mail – i.e. away from this website – we cannot guarantee the secure transmission and protection of your data. We recommend that you never transmit confidential data unencrypted by e-mail.

The legal basis according to Article 6 (1) a GDPR (lawfulness of processing) is that you give us your consent to the processing of the data you have entered. You can revoke this consent at any time – an informal e-mail is sufficient, you will find our contact details in the imprint.

Rights according to the General Data Protection Regulation

In accordance with the provisions of the GDPR, you are entitled to the following rights:

  • Right to rectification (Article 16 GDPR)
  • Right to erasure ("Right to be forgotten") (Article 17 GDPR)
  • Right to restriction of processing (Article 18 GDPR)
  • Right to notification – obligation to notify in connection with the rectification or deletion of personal data or the restriction of Processing (Article 19 GDPR)
  • right to data portability (Article 20 GDPR)
  • right of objection (Article 21 GDPR)
  • right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling (Article 22 GDPR)

If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or that your data protection claims have otherwise been violated in any way, you can contact the Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (BfDI).

Evaluation of visitor behaviour

In the following data protection declaration, we inform you whether and how we evaluate data of your visit to this website. The evaluation of the collected data is usually anonymous and we cannot insite any conclusions about your person from your behaviour on this website.

You can find out more about the possibilities of objecting to this evaluation of the visit data in the following data protection declaration.

TLS encryption with https

We use https to transmit data on the Internet in a tap-proof manner (data protection through technology design Article 25 (1) GDPR). By using TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transmission on the Internet, we can ensure the protection of confidential data. You can recognize the use of this data transmission security by the small lock symbol in the upper left corner of the browser and the use of the scheme https (instead of http) as part of our Internet address.

Facebook pixel Privacy Policy

We use the Facebook pixel of Facebook on our website. For this we have implemented a code on our website. The Facebook pixel is a snippet of JavaScript code that loads a collection of functions that allow Facebook to track your user actions, provided that you have come to our website via Facebook ads. For example, if you purchase a product on our website, the Facebook pixel is triggered and stores your actions on our website in one or more cookies. These cookies enable Facebook to compare your user data (customer data such as IP address, user ID) with the data of your Facebook account. Then Facebook deletes this data again. The data collected is anonymous and not visible to us and can only be used in the context of advertising placements. If you are even Facebook users and are logged in, the visit to our website is automatically assigned to your Facebook user account.

We only want to show our services and products to those people who are really interested in them. With the help of Facebook pixels, our advertising measures can be better tailored to your wishes and interests. In this way, Facebook users (if they have allowed personalized advertising) get to see suitable advertising. Furthermore, Facebook uses the collected data for analysis purposes and its own advertisements.

In the following, we show you those cookies that were set by integrating Facebook pixels on a test page. Please note that these are only example cookies. Depending on the interaction on our website, different cookies are set.

If you are not a Facebook user, you can generally manage your usage-based online advertising on http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/. There you have the possibility to deactivate or activate providers.

If you want to know more about Facebook's privacy, we recommend the company's own data policies on https://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

Facebook Automatic Advanced Matching Privacy Policy

We have also activated Automatic Advanced Matching as part of the Facebook pixel function. This feature of the pixel allows us to send hashed emails, name, gender, city, state, zip code, and date of birth or phone number to Facebook as additional information, provided that you have provided us with this information. This activation allows us to tailor advertising campaigns on Facebook even more precisely to people who are interested in our services or products.

Google Tag Manager Privacy Policy

For our website we use the Google Tag Manager of the company Google Inc. For the European region, Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services. This Tag Manager is one of Google's many helpful marketing products. Google Tag Manager allows us to centrally integrate and manage code sections of various tracking tools that we use on our website.

In this privacy policy, we want to explain to you in more detail what Google Tag Manager does, why we use it and in what form data is processed.

What is Google Tag Manager?

The Google Tag Manager is an organizational tool that allows us to integrate and manage website tags centrally and via a user interface. Tags are small sections of code that, for example, your Record (track) activities on our website. For this purpose, JavaScript code sections are inserted into the source code of our site. The tags often come from google-internal products such as Google Ads or Google Analytics, but tags from other companies can also be integrated and managed via the manager. Such tags perform different tasks. You can collect browser data, feed marketing tools with data, integrate buttons, set cookies and also track users across multiple websites.

Why do we use Google Tag Manager for our website?

What they say: Organization is half the battle! And of course, this also applies to the maintenance of our website. In order to make our website as good as possible for you and all people who are interested in our products and services, we need various tracking tools such as Google Analytics. The data collected by these tools shows us what you are most interested in, where we can improve our services and to which people we should still show our offers. And for this tracking to work, we have to integrate corresponding JavaScript codes into our website. Basically, we could integrate each code section of the individual tracking tools separately into our source code. However, this requires a relatively long time and it is easy to lose track. That's why we use Google Tag Manager. We can easily integrate the necessary scripts and manage them from one place. In addition, the Google Tag Manager offers an easy-to-use user interface and you do not need any programming knowledge. This is how we manage to keep order in our day jungle.

What data is stored by Google Tag Manager?

The Tag Manager itself is a domain that does not set cookies and does not store any data. He acts as a mere "administrator" of the implemented tags. The data is recorded by the individual tags of the different web analysis tools. In Google Tag Manager, the data is virtually smuggled through to the individual tracking tools and is not stored.

, however, the situation is very different with the integrated tags of the various web analysis 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. To do so, please read our data protection 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 the use and use of our Tag Manager and not your data, which is referred to via the code sections. can be saved. We enable Google and others to receive selected data in anonymous form. We therefore agree to the anonymous disclosure 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 your own results with those of your competitors. Based on the information collected, processes can be optimized.

How long and where is the data stored?

If Google stores data, this data is stored on its own Google servers. The servers are spread all over the world. Most of them are located in America. Under https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/?hl=de you can read exactly where the Google servers are located.

How long the individual tracking tools store your data can be found in our individual data protection 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 data protection texts for the individual tracking tools, you will find detailed information on how to 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. More information can be found on https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&tid=311224422. If you want to know more about Google Tag Manager, we recommend the FAQs at https://www.google.com/intl/de/tagmanager/faq.html.

Newsletter Privacy Policy

If you subscribe to our newsletter, you submit the above personal data and give us the right to contact you by e-mail. We use the data stored as part of the registration for the newsletter exclusively for our newsletter and do not pass it on.

Sould you unsubscribe from the newsletter – you will find the link for it in each Newsletter at the bottom – then we delete all data stored with the registration for the newsletter.

Google Ads (Google AdWords) Conversion Tracking Privacy Policy

We use Google Ads (formerly Google AdWords) as an online marketing measure to promote our products and services. In this way, we want to make more people aware of the high quality of our offers on the Internet. As part of our advertising measures through Google Ads, we use conversion tracking from Google Inc. on our website. In Europe, however, Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services. With the help of this free tracking tool, we can better tailor our advertising offer to your interests and needs. In the following article, we want to go into more detail about why we use conversion tracking, what data is stored and how you prevent this data storage.

What is Google Ads Conversion Tracking?

Google Ads (formerly Google AdWords) is the in-house online advertising system of Google Inc. We are convinced of the quality of our offer and want as many people as possible to get to know our website. In the online sector, Google Ads offers the best platform for this. Of course, we also want to gain a precise overview of the cost-benefit factor of our promotions. That's why we use The Conversion Tracking Tool of Google Ads.

But what is a conversion? A conversion occurs when you go from a purely interested website visitor to an acting visitor. This happens whenever you click on our ad and then perform another action, such as visiting our website. With Google's conversion tracking tool, we record what happens after a user clicks on our Google Ads ad. For example, we can see whether products are purchased, services are used or whether users have subscribed to our newsletter.

Why do we use Google Ads conversion tracking on our website?

We use Google Ads to draw attention to our offer on other websites as well. The aim is that our advertising campaigns really only reach those people who are interested in our offers. With the conversion tracking tool, we see which keywords, ads, ad groups and campaigns lead to the desired customer actions. We see how many customers interact with our ads on a device and then convert. Through this data, we can use our cost-benefit factor , measure the success of individual advertising measures and consequently optimize our online marketing measures. We can also use the data obtained to make our website more interesting for you and to adapt our advertising offer even more individually to your needs.

What data is stored in Google Ads Conversion Tracking?

We have integrated a conversion tracking tag or code snippet on our website in order to better analyze certain user actions. If you now click on one of our Google Ads ads, the cookie "Conversion" from a Google domain is stored on your computer (usually in the browser) or mobile device. Cookies are small text files that store information on your computer.

Here the data of the most important cookies for conversion tracking from Google:

Name: Conversion
Wert: EhMI_aySuoyv4gIVled3Ch0llweVGAEgt-mr6aXd7dYlSAGQ311224422-3
Intended use: This cookie stores every conversion you make on our site after you have come to us via a Google Ad.
Expiration date: after 3 months

Name: _gac
Value: 1.1558695989.EAIaIQobChMIiOmEgYO04gIVj5AYCh2CBAPrEAAYASAAEgIYQfD_BwE
The purpose: This is a classic Google Analytics cookie and is used to record various actions on our website.
Expiration date: after 3 months

Notification: The _gac cookie only appears in conjunction with Google Analytics. The above list does not claim to be complete, as Google repeatedly uses other cookies for analytical evaluation.

As soon as you complete an action on our website, Google recognizes the cookie and stores your action as a so-called conversion. As long as you are browsing our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google recognize that you have found us via our Google Ads ad. The cookie is read out and sent back to Google Ads with the conversion data. It is also possible that other cookies are used to measure conversions. The conversion tracking of Google Ads can be refined and improved with the help of Google Analytics. For ads that Google displays in different places on the web, cookies called "__gads" or "_gac" may be placed under our domain. Since September 2017, various campaign information has been stored by analytics.js with the _gac cookie. The cookie stores this data as soon as you Visit one of our pages for which Google Ads auto-tagging has been set up. Unlike cookies that are set for Google domains, Google can only read these conversion cookies when you are on our website. We do not collect or receive any personal data. We get a report from Google with statistical evaluations. For example, we learn the total number of users who clicked on our ad and we see which advertising measures were well received.

How long and where is the data stored?

At this point, we would like to point out that we have no influence on how Google uses the collected data. According to Google, the data is encrypted and stored on secure servers. In most cases, conversion cookies expire after 30 days and do not transmit any personal data. The cookies called "Conversion" and "_gac" (which is used in conjunction with Google Analytics) have an expiration date of 3 months.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

You have the option of not participating in Google Ads conversion tracking. If you deactivate the Google Conversion Tracking cookie via your browser, you are blocking conversion tracking. In this case, you will not be included in the statistics of the tracking tool. You can change the cookie settings in your browser at any time. With each browser, this works a little differently. Here are the instructions on how to manage cookies in your browser:

Chrome: Delete, enable and manage cookies in Chrome

Safari: Managing cookies and website data with Safari

Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have placed on your computer

Internet Explorer: Delete and manage cookies

Microsoft Edge: Delete and manage cookies

If you do not want cookies in principle, you can set up your browser so that it always informs you when a cookie is to be set. This allows you to decide for each individual cookie whether you allow the cookie or not. Downloading and installing this browser plug-in on https://support.google.com/ads/answer/7395996 will also disable all "advertising cookies". Keep in mind that by disabling these cookies, you are not preventing the advertisements, but only the personalized advertising.

By certification for the American-European data protection agreement "Privacy Shield", the American company Google LLC must comply with the data protection laws applicable in the EU. If you would like to learn more about data protection at Google, we recommend Google's general privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

Edged-in Social Media Elements Privacy Policy

We integrate elements of social media services on our website to display images, videos and texts.
By visiting pages that represent these elements, data is transmitted from your browser to the respective social media service and stored there. We do not have access to this data.
The following links will take you to the pages of the respective social media services where it is explained how they handle your data:

Facebook Privacy Policy

We use selected Facebook tools on our website. Facebook is a social media network of Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland. With the help of these tools, we can offer you and people who are interested in our products and services the best possible offer. In the following we give an overview of the different Facebook tools, what data is sent to Facebook and how you can delete this data.

What are Facebook tools?

In addition to many other products, Facebook also offers the so-called "Facebook Business Tools". This is the official name of Facebook. However, since the term is hardly known, we have decided to call them only Facebook tools. These include:

  • Facebook pixel
  • social plug-ins (such as .B the "Like" or "Share" button)
  • Facebook Login
  • Account Kit
  • APIs (programming interface)
  • SDKs (collection of programming tools)
  • platform integrations
  • plugins
  • codes
  • specifications
  • documentations
  • technologies and services

Through these tools, Facebook extends services and has the ability to obtain information about user activity outside of Facebook.

Why do we use Facebook tools on our website?

We only want to show our services and products to people who are really interested in them. With the help of advertisements (Facebook ads), we can reach exactly these people. In order for users to be shown suitable advertising, however, Facebook needs information about people's wishes and needs. Thus, the company is provided with information about user behavior (and contact data) on our website. As a result, Facebook collects better user data and can show interested people the appropriate advertising about our products or services. The tools thus enable tailor-made advertising campaigns on Facebook.

data about your behavior on our website, Facebook calls "event data". These are also used for measurement and analysis services. Facebook can thus create "campaign reports" on our behalf about the impact of our advertising campaigns. Furthermore, analyses give us a better insight into how you use our services, website or products. As a result, we use some of these tools to optimize your user experience on our website. For example, you can use the social plug-ins to share content on our site directly on Facebook.

What data is stored by Facebook tools?

By using individual Facebook tools, personal data (customer data) can be sent to Facebook. Depending on the tools used, customer data such as name, address, telephone number and IP address can be sent.

Facebook uses this information to match the data with the data it has about you (if you are a Facebook member). Before Customer data is transmitted to Facebook, a so-called "hashing" takes place. This means that an arbitrarily large data set is transformed into a string. This is also used to encrypt data.

In addition to the contact data, "event data" is also transmitted. "Event Data" refers to the information we receive about you on our website. For example, which subpages you visit or which products you buy from us. Facebook does not share the information it receives with third parties (such as advertisers) unless the company has explicit permission or is legally required to do so. "Event data" can also be linked to contact data. This allows Facebook to offer better personalized advertising. After the already mentioned reconciliation process, Facebook deletes the contact data again.

In order to be able to deliver advertisements in an optimized way, Facebook only uses the event data if it has been combined with other data (which has been collected by Facebook in other ways). Facebook also uses this event data for security, protection, development and research purposes. Much of this data is transmitted to Facebook via cookies. Cookies are small text files that are used to store data or information in browsers. Depending on the tools used and whether you are a Facebook member, a different number of cookies are created in your browser. In the descriptions of the individual Facebook tools, we go into more detail about individual Facebook cookies. General information about the use of Facebook cookies can also be found on https://www.facebook.com/policies/cookies.

How long and where is the data stored?

Basively, Facebook stores data until it is no longer needed for its own services and Facebook products. Facebook has servers all over the world where your data is stored. However, customer data will be deleted within 48 hours after it has been compared with your own user data.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation, you have the right to information, correction, portability and deletion of your data.

A complete deletion of the data will only take place if you completely delete your Facebook account. Here's how deleting your Facebook account works:

1) Click Settings on the right side of Facebook.

2) Then click on "Your Facebook information" in the left column.

3) Now click "Deactivation and Deletion".

4) Now select "Account" delete" and then click on "Continue and delete account"

5) Now enter your password, click on "Next" and then on "Delete account"

The data that Facebook receives via our site is stored, among other things, via cookies (e.B. for social plugins). In your browser you can deactivate, delete or manage individual or all cookies. Depending on which browser you use, this works in different ways. The following instructions show how to manage cookies in your browser:

Chrome: Delete, enable and manage cookies in Chrome

Safari: Managing cookies and website data with Safari

Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have placed on your computer

Internet Explorer: Delete and manage cookies

Microsoft Edge: Delete and manage cookies

If you do not want cookies in principle, you can set up your browser so that it always informs you when a cookie is to be set. This allows you to decide for each individual cookie whether you allow it or not.

Facebook is an active participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, which regulates the correct and secure transfer of personal data. More information can be found on https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC. We hope we have provided you with the most important information about the use and data processing by the Facebook tools. If you want to know more about how Facebook uses your data, we recommend that you follow the data policy on https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/update.

Facebook Social Plug-ins Privacy Policy

On our website, so-called social plug-ins of the company Facebook Inc. are installed. You can recognize these buttons by the classic Facebook logo, such as the "Like" button (the hand with raised thumbs) or a unique "Facebook plug-in" marking. A social plug-in is a small part of Facebook that is integrated into our site. Each plug-in has its own function. The most commonly used functions are the well-known "Like" and "Share" buttons.

The following social plug-ins are offered by Facebook:

  • "Save" button
  • "Like" button, Share, send and quote
  • Page plug-in
  • Comments
  • Messenger plug-in
  • Embed posts and video players
  • Group plug-in

On https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins for more information on how to use each plug-in. We use the social plug-ins on the one hand to offer you a better user experience on our site, on the other hand because Facebook can optimize our advertisements.

If you have a Facebook account or have visited facebook.com before, Facebook has already set at least one cookie in your browser. In this case, your browser sends information to Facebook via this cookie as soon as you visit our site or interact with social plug-ins (e.B.dem "Like" button).

The information received will be deleted or anonymized within 90 days. According to Facebook, this data includes your IP address, which website you have visited, the date, time and other information concerning your browser.

To prevent Facebook from collecting a lot of data during your visit to our website and connecting it to the Facebook data, you must log out of Facebook during your visit to the website.

In case you are not logged in to Facebook or do not have a Facebook account, your browser sends less information to Facebook because you have fewer Facebook cookies. Nevertheless, data such as your IP address or which website you visit may be transmitted to Facebook. We would also like to expressly point out that we do not know exactly about the exact contents of the data. However, according to our current state of knowledge, we try to inform you as much as possible about the data processing. You can also find out how Facebook uses the data in the company's data policy at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/update.

The following cookies are set in your browser at least when you visit a website with social plug-ins from Facebook visit:

Name: dpr
Wert: no indication
The purpose of use: This cookie is used to make the social plug-ins work on our website.

    Instagram Privacy Policy

    We have integrated Instagram functions on our website. Instagram is a social media platform of the company Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Rd, Menlo Park CA 94025, UNITED STATES. Instagram has been a subsidiary of Facebook Inc. since 2012 and is one of the Facebook products. Embedding Instagram content on our website is called embedding. This allows us to show you content such as buttons, photos or videos from Instagram directly on our website. When you visit websites of our website that have integrated an Instagram function, data is transmitted to Instagram, stored and processed. Instagram uses the same systems and technologies as Facebook. Your data will thus be processed across all Facebook companies.

    In the following, we want to give you a more detailed insight into why Instagram collects data, what data it is and how you can largely control data processing. Since Instagram is part of Facebook Inc., we obtain our information from the Instagram guidelines on the one hand, but also from the Facebook data guidelines themselves on the other.

    What is Instagram?

    Instagram is one of the most famous social media networks worldwide. Instagram combines the advantages of a blog with the advantages of audiovisual platforms such as YouTube or Vimeo. You can upload photos and short videos on "Insta" (as many of the users casually call the platform), edit them with various filters and also distribute them on other social networks. And if you don't want to be active yourself, you can only follow other interesting users.

    Why do we use Instagram on our website?

    Instagram is the social media platform that has really gone through the roof in recent years. And of course we have also reacted to this boom. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible on our website. That's why a varied preparation of our content is a matter of course for us. Through the embedded Instagram functions, we can enrich our content with helpful, funny or exciting content from the Instagram world. Since Instagram is a subsidiary of Facebook, the data collected can also be used for personalized advertising on Facebook. So our ads only get people who are really interested in our products or services.

    Instagram also uses the collected data for measurement and analysis purposes. We get summarized statistics and thus more insight into your wishes and interests. It is important to mention that these reports do not identify you personally.

    What data is stored by Instagram?

    If you come across one of our pages that have Instagram functions (such as Instagram images or plug-ins) built in, your browser will automatically connected to Instagram's servers. Data is sent, stored and processed to Instagram. Regardless of whether you have an Instagram account or not. This includes information about our website, about your computer, about purchases made, about advertisements you see and how you use our offer. Furthermore, the date and time of your interaction with Instagram are also stored. If you have an Instagram account or are logged in, Instagram stores significantly more data about you.

    Facebook distinguishes between customer data and event data. We assume that this is exactly the case with Instagram. Customer data are, for example, name, address, telephone number and IP address. It is important to mention that this customer data will only be transmitted to Instagram if you have been "hashed" before. Hashing means that a record is turned into a string. This allows you to encrypt the contact data. In addition, the above-mentioned "event data" will also be transmitted. By "event data", Facebook – and consequently Instagram – understands data about your user behaviour. It can also happen that contact data is combined with event data. The contact data collected will be compared with the data that Instagram has already provided about you.

    Thr the collected data is transmitted to Facebook via small text files (cookies), which are usually set in your browser. Depending on the Instagram functions used and whether you have an Instagram account yourself, different amounts of data are stored.

    We assume that data processing on Instagram works the same as on Facebook. This means that if you have an Instagram account or have visited www.instagram.com, Instagram has at least set a cookie. If this is the case, your browser sends information to Instagram via the cookie as soon as you come into contact with an Instagram function. At the latest after 90 days (after comparison) this data will be deleted or anonymized again. Although we have dealt intensively with the data processing of Instagram, we can not say exactly what data Instagram collects and stores exactly.

    In the following, we show you cookies that are set in your browser at least when you click on an Instagram function (such as .B button or an Insta image). In our test, we assume that you don't have an Instagram account. Of course, if you are logged in to Instagram, significantly more cookies will be set in your browser.

    How long and where is the data stored?

    Instagram shares the information it receives between facebook companies with external partners and with people you connect with worldwide. The data processing takes place in compliance with your own data policy. Your data is distributed on Facebook servers around the world, among other things for security reasons. Most of these servers are located in the UNITED States.

    How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

    Thanks to the General Data Protection Regulation, you have the right to information, portability, correction and deletion of your data. In instagram settings, you can manage your data. If you want to completely erase your data on Instagram, you need to delete your Instagram account permanently.

    And here's how Instagram account deletion works:

    Open the Instagram app first. On your profile page, go down and click on "Help Center". Now you come to the company's website. On the website, click on "Manage your account" and then on "Your account" delete".

    If you delete your account altogether, Instagram deletes posts such as your photos and status updates. Information that other people have shared about you does not belong to your account and will therefore not be deleted.

    As mentioned above, Instagram stores your data primarily through cookies. You can manage, deactivate or delete these cookies in your browser. Depending on your browser, the management always works a bit differently. Here we show you the instructions of the most important browsers.

    Chrome: Delete, enable and manage cookies in Chrome

    Safari: Manage cookies and website data with Safari

    Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites on your Computer

    Internet Explorer: Deleting and Managing Cookies

    Microsoft Edge: Deleting and Managing Cookies

    You can also set up your browser so that you are always informed when a cookie is to be set. Then you can always decide individually whether you want to allow the cookie or not.

    Instagram is a subsidiary of Facebook Inc. and Facebook is an active participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. This framework ensures correct data transfer between the USA and the European Union. You can find out more about it at https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC . We have tried to bring you closer to the most important information about data processing by Instagram. On https://help.instagram.com/519522125107875
    you can take a closer look at Instagram's data policies.

    YouTube Privacy Policy

    We have included YouTube videos on our website. So we can present you interesting videos directly on our site. YouTube is a video portal that has been a subsidiary of Google since 2006. The video portal is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page on our website that has embedded a YouTube video, your browser automatically connects to the youTube or Google servers. Depending on the settings, different data is transmitted. Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all data processing in Europe.

    In the following, we would like to explain in more detail which data is processed, why we have integrated YouTube videos and how you can manage or delete your data.

    What is YouTube?

    On YouTube, users can watch, rate, comment on and upload videos for free. Over the past few years, YouTube has become one of the most important social media channels worldwide. In order for us to be able to display videos on our website, YouTube provides a code snippet that we have integrated on our site.

    Why do we use YouTube videos on our website?

    YouTube is the video platform with the most visitors and the best content. We strive to provide you with the best possible user experience on our website. And of course, interesting videos should not be missing. With the help of our embedded videos, we provide you with other helpful content in addition to our texts and images. In addition, our website is easier to find on the Google search engine through the embedded videos. Even though we run ads through Google Ads, thanks to the data we collect, Google can really only show these ads to people who are interested in our offerings.

    What data is stored by YouTube?

    As soon as you visit one of our pages that has a YouTube video installed, YouTube at least sets a cookie that stores your IP address and our URL. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube can usually assign your interactions on our website to your profile using cookies. This includes data such as session duration, bounce rate, approximate location, technical information such as browser type, screen resolution, or your Internet service provider. Other data may include contact details, any reviews, sharing content via social media or adding to your favorites on YouTube.

    If you're not signed in to a Google Account or YouTube account, Google stores data with a unique identifier associated with your device, browser, or app. For example, your preferred language setting is retained. But a lot of interaction data can't because fewer cookies are set.

    In the following list we show cookies that have been set in a test in the browser. On the one hand, we show cookies that are set without a registered YouTube account. On the other hand, we show cookies that are set with a logged in account. The list cannot claim to be complete, because the user data always depends on the interactions on YouTube.
