We maintain an online presence on social media networks and platforms in order to communicate with customers, interested parties and users that are active on these social media networks and platforms and to inform these customers, interested parties and users of our products and services.
We expressly state that user data may be processed outside the European Union. Such processing may entail risks for users, e.g. by making it more difficult to enforce users‘ rights. With respect to US providers certified under the Privacy Shield, we expressly state that such providers are committed to complying with EU privacy standards.
Moreover as a rule, user data is processed for purposes of market research and advertising. For example, user profiles can be created on the basis of user behaviour and the resulting interests of the users. The user profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that are presumed to correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies, in which the user’s usage behaviour and interests are saved, are usually stored on the user’s computer. Moreover, data can be stored in the user profiles independently of the devices deployed by the users (particularly if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged into these platforms).
Processing of users‘ personal data occurs on the basis of our legitimate interests in the effective informing of and communicating with users in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. If the users are asked by the respective providers for their consent to the data processing (i.e. declare their consent e.g. by ticking a check box or confirming via a button), the legal basis for processing is Article (6)(1)(a), Article 7 GDPR.
For a detailed presentation of the respective processing and the possibilities of objection (Opt-Out), we refer to the linked information of the providers, cited below.
Also in the case of requests for information and for assertion of user rights, we expressly state that requests for information and assertion of user rights can most effectively be enforced with the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and only the providers can directly take appropriate measures and provide information. If you still need help, please do not hesitate to contact us.
The data controller has integrated components of the Instagram service on this website. Instagram is a service that qualifies as an audiovisual platform that enables users to share photos and videos and also to disseminate such data on other social networks.
The operating company of Instagram’s services is Instagram LLC, 1 Hacker Way, Building 14, First Floor, Menlo Park, CA, USA.
Each time one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which an Instagram component (Insta button) has been integrated, is accessed, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject (data subject) is automatically prompted by the respective Instagram component to download a representation of the corresponding Instagram component. As part of this technical process, Instagram obtains knowledge of which specific page of our website is being visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is concurrently logged in to Instagram, then Instagram will recognize which specific page the data subject is visiting each time the person visits our website and for the entire duration of that person’s stay on our website. This information is collected by the Instagram component and mapped by Instagram to the Instagram account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks one of the Instagram buttons integrated into our website, the data and information transmitted will be assigned to the personal Instagram user account of the data subject and stored and processed by Instagram.
Instagram receives information from the Instagram component that the data subject has visited our site, whenever the data subject is logged into Instagram at the same time as the data subject is visiting our site, regardless of whether or not they click the Instagram component. If the data subject does not want Instagram to receive such information, the data subject can prevent the transmission by logging out of his/her Instagram account before accessing our website.

Vimeo, to which we have no access. You can prevent Google Analytics from tracking you by using the opt-out tools that Google provides for some Internet browsers. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by Google Analytics and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and prevent Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link:
We use Social Plugins („Plugins“) of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland („Facebook“), on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. our interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offering as defined in Article 6(1)(f) GDPR).
This may include, for example, content such as images, videos or texts and buttons, with which users can share content from this online offering within Facebook. The list and appearance of the Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAACtatus=Active).
When a user accesses a function of this online service that contains such a plugin, the user’s device establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to the user’s device and integrated into the online offering by the content of the plugin. User profiles can be created from the processed data. Thus we have no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook collects with the aid of this plugin and we therefore inform the user according to our present state of knowledge.
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the respective page of the online offering. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his or her Facebook account. When users interact with the plugins, e.g. by clicking the Like button or commenting, the respective information is transferred directly from your device to Facebook and stored at Facebook. If a user is not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to know and store the user’s IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymised IP address is stored in Germany.
If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect information about him or her via this online service and link it to his or her Facebook member data, he or she must log out of Facebook and delete cookies before using our online service. Additional settings and objections to the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads or via the US website http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU website http://www.youronlinechoices.com/. The settings are platform-independent, i.e. they will be applied for all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.
Functions and content of the Twitter service offered by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA, can be integrated into our online offer. This may include, for example, content such as images, videos or texts and buttons with which users can share content from this online service within Twitter.
The controller has integrated YouTube components into this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips and other users to view, rate and comment on them free of charge. YouTube allows publication of all types of videos; this is why complete film and television productions, as well as music videos, trailers or videos made by users themselves can be accessed via the Internet portal.
The operating company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
Each time one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, is accessed, the Internet browser on the data subject’s IT system is automatically prompted by the respective YouTube component to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Additional information concerning YouTube is provided at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/. As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google obtain information about which specific subpage of our website is being visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged into YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognizes which specific subpage of our website the data subject is visiting at access to a subpage containing a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.
YouTube and Google receive information through the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website, whenever that person is logged into YouTube at the same time as accessing our website, regardless of whether that person clicks on a YouTube video or not. If such transmission of this information to YouTube and Google is not intended by the data subject, the data subject may prevent such transmission by logging out of his/her YouTube account before accessing our website.
The data privacy policies published by YouTube, which are available at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/, provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.
We, the website operator, have integrated the component, Google Analytics (with anonymisation function), on our website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection and evaluation of data concerning the behaviour of visitors to Internet sites. A web analysis service collects data concerning, for instance, the website from which a data subject has accessed a different website (so-called referrers), what subpages of the website have been accessed or how often and for how long a subpage has been viewed. Web analysis is mainly used for optimization of a website and for cost/benefit analysis of Internet advertising.
The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
On this website we use the extension „_gat._anonymizeIp“ for web analysis via Google Analytics. This extension is used by Google to shorten and anonymise the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject, if access to our Internet pages is from a Member State of the European Union or from another State party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us showing the activities on our website and to provide other services in conjunction with the use of our website.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. By placing the cookie, Google is able to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, is accessed, the Internet browser on the data subject’s IT system is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for purposes of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Google uses, for instance, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission billings.
The cookie is used to store personal information, such as access time, the location from which an access originated, and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in Ireland. This personal data is stored by Google in Ireland. Under certain circumstances Google shares this personal information, which is collected through the technical process, with third parties.
The data subject can prevent the placing of cookies through our website at any time, as described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the placement of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already placed by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
