a. When you use our website or our contact form
The provision of this website requires the processing of personal data, such as your IP address. This processing is necessary for the retrieval of the content displayed on this website (including its functions) and due to IT security measures.
You also have the option of contacting us via our contact form. For this purpose, we collect the personal data that you enter in the contact form.
(1) Legal basis
The processing of your personal data to provide this website and to communicate via this website is based on our overriding legitimate interest. In order to provide this website, it is technically necessary for us to process certain personal data (e.g. the IP address). For your communication with us, it is necessary that we handle your respective personal data.
(2) Balancing of interests
Within the framework of the necessary balancing of interests, we have in each case weighed up your interest in confidentiality against our interests in providing this website and contacting you. In each case, your interest in confidentiality takes a back seat. Otherwise, we would not be able to provide you with this website or respond to your contact request.
(3) Recipient categories
We use service providers to provide our website. We transmit personal data to these service providers for this purpose. These service providers are contractually obliged by us to exercise the same care in handling personal data as we do ourselves.
In the process, personal data may be transferred to third countries or international organisations. For your protection and the protection of your personal data, appropriate safeguards are provided for such data transfers in accordance with and in compliance with the legal requirements.
To the extent that these transfers are not based on a legal basis or are made to a country for which there is no adequacy decision adopted by the EU Commission, we use the EU standard contractual clauses.
Information on EU standard contractual clauses can be found on the websites of the European Union.

You can register for our newsletter on our website by giving the corresponding consent. For this purpose, we collect the personal data that you enter in the registration form.

For this purpose, we handle the personal data that you provide to us in each case or which is provided to us by the respective platform operator about you, insofar as it is provided to us. You can control the privacy settings yourself within the framework of a social media platform.
(1) Legal basis
We process your personal data within the scope of our social media offerings based on our overriding legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) f) DSGVO. For the provision of our social media offers, it is technically necessary that we process certain personal data (e.g. the IP address; personal data that you have provided to the respective platform operator or to us).
Within the framework of the necessary balancing of interests, we have weighed up your interest in confidentiality and our interests in the provision of our social media offerings in each case. Your interest in confidentiality takes a back seat. Otherwise, we would not be able to offer you our social media services.
(2) Recipient categories

We use the provider YouTube for the integration of videos. YouTube is operated by YouTube LLC with its headquarters at 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube is represented by Google.
We use plugins from the provider YouTube on some of our websites. When you call up the web pages provided with such a plugin, a connection is established to the YouTube servers and the plugin is displayed. This transmits to the YouTube server which of our web pages you have visited. If you are logged in as a YouTube member, YouTube assigns this information to your personal user account. When using the plugin, such as clicking on the start button of a video, this information is also assigned to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your YouTube user account as well as other user accounts of the companies YouTube LLC and Google and deleting the corresponding cookies of the companies before using our websites.

The legal basis is our legitimate interest in conjunction with a statutory provision (Section 7 (3) UWG).
(2) Recipient categories
We use service providers for our email marketing. We transmit personal data to these service providers for this purpose. These service providers are contractually obliged by us to exercise the same care in handling personal data as we do ourselves.
So-called "cookies" are used on our websites. Cookies are data records that are stored by a web server on the end device (e.g. computer, smartphone, tablet) of the user.
These are sent back either to our website ("first party cookie") or to another website to which the cookie belongs ("third party cookie") when our website is called up again with the same end device.
Through the stored and returned information (e.g. internet browser and operating system used; domain name of the website from which you came; average time spent on the site, pages viewed), the respective website recognises that you have already accessed and visited it with the browser of your end device. When you access our websites, information is automatically collected in anonymous form. This enables us to provide the user with a more effective and generally better use of our web pages over time by improving the content and making it easier to use.
The statistical data obtained helps us to improve the performance and attractiveness of our websites. We use this information so that we can provide you with services and information that are more specifically tailored to your needs. Any storage of personal data over and above the above-mentioned information will only take place with your express consent. Among other things, this is the case when you create a customer account, conclude a contract, contact us or participate in a competition. Your personal data will only be used to process your request.
Switching off the cookie function in your browser does not restrict the use of our websites and the services offered.
The legal basis for this is in each case our overriding legitimate interest. Within the framework of the necessary balancing of interests, we have in each case weighed up your interest in confidentiality and our interest in providing this website (including its functions). In each case, your interest in confidentiality takes a back seat.
(1) Use of tracking cookies for advertising purposes
This website works with external performance advertising networks to display and optimise its own advertisements. As part of the tracking services, cookies are stored for the documentation of transactions on end devices of users who visit or use websites or other online offers of its customers. These cookies serve the sole purpose of correctly assigning the success of an advertising medium and the corresponding billing within the advertising network. Personal data is not collected, processed or used. Only the information about when a certain advertising medium was clicked on by an end device is placed in a cookie. The external partners used are listed below with a link to their data protection information.
(2) DoubleClick by Google
"DoubleClick" is a service provided by Google.
For DoubleClick, cookies are used to present you with advertisements that are relevant to you. In the process, a pseudonymous identification number (ID) is assigned to your browser in order to check which ads were displayed in your browser and which ads were called up. The cookies do not contain any personal information. The use of the "DoubleClick" cookies only enables Google and its partner websites to serve ads based on previous visits to our website or other websites on the Internet. The information generated by the cookies is transferred by Google to a server in the USA for evaluation and stored there. A transfer of data by Google to third parties only takes place on the basis of legal regulations or within the framework of commissioned data processing. Under no circumstances will Google combine your data with other data collected by Google.
You can also deactivate DoubleClick via the following options: https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=de

(3) Use of Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google") on our websites. Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, by activating IP anonymisation, Google will truncate your IP address beforehand within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on our behalf for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to us. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set, which will prevent the collection of your data during future visits to this website:
We continue to use Google Analytics to analyse data from Double-Click-Cookie and also AdWords for statistical purposes. If you do not wish this to happen, you can do this via the Ads Preferences Manager

The provider of Honeybadger is Honeybadger Industries LLC, 11410 NE 124th Street #246, Kirkland, WA 98034, USA. You can find more information about this tool here.

(5) Google Tag Manager:
This website uses Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows marketers to manage website tags through one interface. The tool itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-less domain and does not store any personal data. The tool takes care of triggering other tags, which in turn may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at the domain or cookie level, this remains in place for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.
Google Tag Manager is operated by Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. So-called standard contractual clauses pursuant to Art. 46 DSGVO have been concluded with this service provider as suitable guarantees.

We use the Google Search Console to monitor our website technically for errors. The Google Search Console is a free service that allows us to monitor and manage our presence in the Google search index. There we get access to data and information that Google has about our website. No user or tracking data is transmitted from our side to Google. We only receive data from Google about our web presence.
We delete your personal data when the respective purpose of storage ceases to apply and no statutory provision requires retention.
