1. Google Tag Manager

We use the Google Tag Manager. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. The Google Tag Manager is a tool that allows us to integrate tracking or statistical tools and other technologies on our website. The Google Tag Manager itself does not create user profiles, does not store cookies and does not perform any independent analyses. It only serves to manage and play out the tools integrated via it. However, the Google Tag Manager records your IP address, which may also be transmitted to Google's parent company in the United States.

The use of the Google Tag Manager is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in a fast and uncomplicated integration and management of various tools on his website.

2. Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
Google Analytics enables the website operator to analyze the behavior of website visitors. In doing so, the website operator receives various usage data, such as page views, dwell time, operating systems used and the origin of the user. This data is assigned to the respective end device of the user. An assignment to a user ID does not take place.
Furthermore, we can use Google Analytics to record your mouse and scroll movements and clicks, among other things. Furthermore, Google Analytics uses various modeling approaches to supplement the data records collected and uses machine learning technologies in data analysis.
Google Analytics uses technologies that enable the recognition of the user for the purpose of analyzing user behavior (e.g. cookies or device fingerprinting). The information collected by Google about the use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
The use of this service is based on your consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG. The consent can be revoked at any time.
Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. Details can be found here:
The company has a certification according to the "EU-US Data Privacy Framework" (DPF). The DPF is an agreement between the European Union and the USA, which is intended to ensure compliance with European data protection standards for data processing in the USA. Every company certified under the DPF undertakes to comply with these data protection standards. For more information, please contact the provider at the following link:

X. Integration of external content and service providers

Integration reCAPTCHA

To protect input forms on our site, we use the service "reCAPTCHA" of the company Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4), hereinafter "Google". The use of this service makes it possible to distinguish whether the corresponding input is of human origin or misused by automated machine processing.

To our knowledge, the referrer URL, the IP address, the behavior of website visitors, information about the operating system, browser and dwell time, cookies, display instructions and scripts, the input behavior of the user, as well as mouse movements in the area of the "reCAPTCHA" checkbox are transmitted to "Google".

If you want to prevent this transmission and storage of data about you and your behavior on our website by "Google", you must log out of "Google" before you visit our site or use the reCAPTCHA plug-in.

The use of the service "reCAPTCHA" obtained information is in accordance with the Google Terms of Use:

As the site operator, we have a legitimate interest in determining whether the input is made by a human, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

The purpose of the data processing is to determine whether the input is not made by machine.

2. integration of videos via Youtube

On our website it may happen that we embed Youtube videos. To ensure that these can be viewed in a privacy-friendly manner, we have implemented the so-called "two-click solution" or user-friendly button. This means that the content of the video can only be viewed if either consent is given by you within our Consent Tool, or you consciously click on the video. In this case, a cookie is set.

The operator of the corresponding plugin is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you watch the video, a connection to YouTube servers is established. This tells Youtube which pages you are visiting. If you are logged into your Youtube account, Youtube can assign your surfing behavior to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your Youtube account beforehand.

If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google ad program, you will not have to deal with such cookies when watching Youtube videos. However, Youtube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you would like to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in the browser.
For more information on data protection at "Youtube", please refer to the provider's privacy policy at:

XI. Privacy policy for social networks

We operate profiles on the following networks. From our website, we only link to our profiles on the respective social networks:

The providers of the various platforms are primarily responsible for providing the data subject with information about the processing operations and enabling him to exercise his data protection rights. Irrespective of this, we would like to inform you herewith about our appearances on social networks. We recommend that you do not send us any sensitive data via these profiles. Please use a direct communication channel for this purpose.

All data that you enter on our social network profiles (e.g.: comments, pictures, private messages, etc.) are published by the platform operators and can be used by us.
The legal basis for this is the legitimate interest from Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Processing purposes via CPI - accounts with our visitors can be as follows: public relations, a timely information as well as interaction opportunity and contact with network users/applicants (including via LinkedIn).

Data processing by the operators of social networks
When our profiles are called up, data is processed by the operator of the platform. The form in which this happens cannot be influenced or viewed by us. However, the procedure usually depends on whether you yourself are registered with the platform. It is possible that the providers process the data outside the EU, so that we cannot guarantee a data protection-compliant procedure according to the GDPR.

You can find more information about the data processing of the individual platform providers in their privacy policy:

You can tell whether an individual page of our website is encrypted by the closed key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser. We also use appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
