Data protection statement

1. General

1.1 What is personal data?

Personal data is information that discloses or can disclose the identity of the user. We adhere to the principle of data avoidance. As far as possible, we do not collect personal data.

1.2 Dealing with personal data

Personal data is used solely for the purpose of establishing the contract, structuring its content, implementing or processing the contractual relationship (Art. 6 I S. 1 b GDPR).

In addition, personal data will only be processed if we have received your consent to do so (Art. 6 I S. 1 a GDPR) or if it concerns data whose processing is necessary for our legitimate interests and if the assessment shows that there are no overriding interests, fundamental rights or fundamental freedoms on your part (Art. 6 I S. 1 f GDPR).

We may use contract processors to process your personal data but will not pass on your personal data to third parties.

The necessary payment data will only be passed on to the bank commissioned with the payment and, if applicable, to the commissioned and selected payment service provider for the processing of payments.
Your personal data will only be processed within the EU, unless otherwise stated below.

1.3 Usage data

When you visit the website, general technical information is collected. This includes the IP address used, time of day, duration of the visit, browser type and, if applicable, the page of origin. This usage data is registered in a log file for technical reasons and can be used and stored for the purpose of statistical evaluation of this website. This usage data is not linked to your other personal data.

1.4 Duration of storage

After the end of the purpose for which the data was collected, we only store your personal data for as long as this is necessary due to legal (in particular tax) regulations.

2. Your rights

2.1 Information

You can request information from us as to whether we process your personal data and, if so, you have a right to information about this personal data and the further information specified in Art. 15 GDPR.

2.2 Right to correction

You have the right to rectify the incorrect personal data concerning you and may request the completion of incomplete personal data in accordance with Art. 16 GDPR.

2.3 Right to cancellation

You have the right to demand that we delete your personal data immediately. We are obliged to delete them immediately, in particular if one of the following reasons applies:

  • Your personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
  • You revoke your consent on which the processing of your data was based and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
  • Your data have been processed unlawfully.

The right to deletion does not exist insofar as your personal data is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of our legal claims.

2.4 Right to limitation of processing

You have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data if

  • you dispute the accuracy of the data and we therefore verify the accuracy,
  • the processing is unlawful and you refuse to delete it and instead request the restriction of its use
  • we no longer need the data, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims,
  • you have objected to the processing of your data and it is not yet clear whether our legitimate reasons outweigh your reasons.

2.5 Right to Data Transferability

You have the right to receive the personal data relating to you that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format and you have the right to communicate this data to another responsible person without our interference, provided that the processing is based on a consent or a contract and the processing is carried out by us using automated procedures.

2.6 Right of revocation

If the processing of your personal data is based on a consent, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time.

2.7 General and right of appeal

The exercise of your aforementioned rights is generally free of charge for you. If you have any complaints, you have the right to contact the supervisory authority responsible for us, the state data protection officer, directly.

5. Third-party services

5.1 Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service by Google Inc., operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland („Google“) and raises and saves data through this web analysis service from which user profiles are created through the use of pseudonyms. The user profiles created this way serve the analysis of the visitor’s behavior to create and improve a customized offer on this website. Google Analytics uses so-called “Cookies”, small text files which are saved on your computer, and which allow you an analysis of the website’s use. The information generated through the cookie about your use of the website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and saved there. In case of the website’s IP anonymization activation, your IP address, however, is shortened within the member countries of the European Union or in other Member States of the Agreement of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptions, the full IP address is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of this website’s provider, Google will use this information to analyze your use of the website, to compose reports about website activities and to procure further services, in conjunction with the use of this website and the use of the Internet, for the website provider. The IP address transmitted in your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data collected by Google. Even user profiles used under a pseudonym are not merged with the personally-related data about the user without express and separately-stated permission from the user. You can prohibit the storage of cookies through the appropriate setting of your browser software. However, we want to advise you, that in this case not all functions of this website may be fully functional and usable. Furthermore, you may prevent data collection through cookies related to your use of this website (incl. your IP address) and transmission to Google as well as data processing by Google by downloading and installing the available browser plug-in, available at the following link [ http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de ].
Google’s Data Protection Policy can be viewed at http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/. Further information about the User Terms and Data Protection, you can find at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html, or at http://www.google.com/intl/en/analytics/privacyoverview.html. We advise you that Google Analytics is expanded on this website by the code “anonymizelp” to guarantee an anonymized raising of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

5.2 Social media links

We have our own social media pages with the third-party providers that can be reached via links from this website. By using the links you will reach the respective websites of the third party providers (e.g. Facebook, Twitter). In order to avoid unnecessary data transfer, we recommend that you log out of the respective third-party provider yourself before using a corresponding link, so that usage profiles cannot be created by the third-party provider through the use of the link.

5.3 LinkedIn Analytics and LinkedIn Ads

We use LinkedIn conversion tracking and LinkedIn retargeting, operated by LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland.
This technology allows LinkedIn to serve ads to users of our website based on their interests. It also provides the ability to generate anonymous reports on the performance of the ads and information about how users interact with this site. For this purpose, our website includes the LinkedIn Insight Tag, which connects to the LinkedIn server when you visit this website and are logged into your LinkedIn account.

We use the LinkedIn Insight Tag conversion tool, operated by LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland. This tool creates a cookie in your web browser, which allows the collection of information such as IP address, device and browser characteristics and page events (e.g., page views). This data is encrypted, anonymized within seven days and the anonymized data is deleted within 90 days. LinkedIn does not share any personally identifiable information with us but provides anonymized reports on website audience and display performance. In addition, LinkedIn offers retargeting through the Insight Tag. We may use this data to display targeted advertising outside of our website without identifying you as a website visitor.
