Analytics: procedure to statistically measure the scope of an online service, which includes information on how long users visit a particular website, on the device and system software used, on language settings, on origin, region, location and activities of the user. It comprises a statistical analysis.
Browser: computer program for the rendering of websites (e. g. Chrome, Firefox, Safari)
Cookies: text files stored on the user’s computer by a web server through the used browser. The stored cookie information may contain a cookie ID that allows recognition; it may also contain information on application status or on websites previously visited by the user. The browser sends the cookie information to the web server when the website is revisited later. Most browsers accept cookies automatically. Cookies can be administered through the browser functions (mainly via “options“ or “settings”).

2. ata processing in detail
In this section of the data privacy statement, we would like to inform the reader in detail about the processing of personal data in the context of our services. For greater clarity and to facilitate reading, we subdivide the information according to the different functions of our services. During the regular usage of the services, various functions and thus various ways of processing can be effective consecutively or simultaneously.
2.1 Provision of the website and of log files
2.1.1. Description and scope of data processing
Whenever our website is accessed, our system, i.e. the web server, initiates the automated collection of information on the user’s computer or device.
The following data are collected in this context:
information on the type of browser and the applied version
the operating system of the user’s device
the screen resolution of the used display
the user’s internet service provider
the user’s IP address
date and time of access
the previously visited website from which the user accesses our website
2.1.2 Legal basis of data processing
The legal basis of the temporary storage of these data and the log files is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR
(our legitimate interest as the responsible provider of the website).
2.1.3 Purpose of data processing
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is indispensable for securely operating the website. As a consequence, the user does not have any possibility to object. An analysis of the data, however, is not carried out in this context.
2.1.4 Duration of data storage
The data mentioned above are deleted as soon as they are no longer required to gain the end of their collection. With reference to the collection of data for the provision of the website, the data are deleted when the respective session has been terminated.
2.2 Email contact and chat window
2.2.1 Description and scope of data processing
We can be contacted via our chat window and the email address provided. In this case, the user’s personal data transferred with the inquiry are stored until the user’s request has completely been processed.
2.2.2 Legal basis of data processing
The legal basis of processing data transmitted in a contact request is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR
(our legitimate interest as the responsible provider of the website).
If the request aims at the conclusion of a contract, Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR is an additional legal basis of data processing (contract initiation).
2.2.3 Purpose of data processing
The processing of personal data acquired through the contact initiation exclusively serves the handling of the inquiry.
2.2.4 Duration of data storage
The data mentioned above are deleted as soon as they are no longer required to gain the end of their collection. This is the case when it becomes obvious that the respective issue has been clarified finally and data storage is not required anymore for potential inquiries of the person concerned.
2.2.5 Possibility to object
The user has the possibility to object to data processing at any time. In this case, however, the conversation cannot be continued. The objection is to be addressed to
All personal data stored through the contact initiation will be deleted in this case.
Below we describe how your personal data are processed, supported by analysis technologies, to analyze and improve our services.
The description of the analysis procedure also contains information on how you can prevent data processing or object to it. Please notice that the so-called “Opt-out”, i.e. the refusal of data processing, is generally stored via cookies. Consequently, you have to declare your refusal again and carry out “Opt-out” manually again if you use our services on a new device or access them via a different browser or if you have deleted cookies set previously by your browser.
The applied analysis procedure processes personal data only as pseudonymous data. Thus, a connection to a concrete, identified natural person, i.e. a relation between collected data and information about the carrier of the pseudonym, is not established.
With the support of this analysis procedure and information directly transferred, as for example cookie ID or abbreviated IP address, further information is attributed to the pseudonym. Typically, this is technical information on the device applied in order to gather information on the user’s behavior in the internet, his interests and his location.
2.3.1 Description and scope of data processing
On our website, we apply the analysis tool of the provider Matomo. In Matomo, the user’s interactions are primarily gathered and analyzed systematically with the support of cookies. If individual pages of our website are visited, the following data are stored:
three bytes of the IP address of the user’s system (anonymous IP address)
the website visited
the website from which the user has been directed to the respective page of our website
the screen resolution of the used display
the subpages opened from the website visited
the period of time the user visits the website
the frequency of visiting the website
The software has been adjusted in a way that the IP address is not saved completely, but the last 8-bit byte of the IP address is masked (e.g. 251.4.71.xxx). Thus, establishing a connection between the abbreviated IP address and the user’s computer or device is not possible any longer.
2.3.2 Legal basis of data processing
The legal basis of processing the user’s personal data is Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR (consent).
2.3.3 Purpose of data processing
Processing personal data with the support of Matomo allows us to statistically analyze our users’ browsing habits. Thus, we are enabled to gather information on how single components of our website are used. This helps us to continuously improve our website, its user-friendliness and our product range.
2.3.4 Duration of data storage
Stored data are deleted as soon as they are no longer required for our purposes. In our case, the deletion is carried out after 14 months.
2.3.5 Possibility to object
In order to enable the deactivation of the statistical recording of your visiting behavior, we offer an “Opt-out” by default. As soon as this option is activated and the respective cookie has been set, no further recording of your visiting behavior by Matomo will take place.
2.4 Our activities in social networks
2.4.1 Description of data privacy risks when using social networking platforms
To be able to communicate with you in social networks and to inform about our services, we are active on several social networking sites.
We are not the original provider (responsible) of these sites, but we merely use them in the scope of the opportunities offered by the respective provider. For reasons of precaution, we would like to point out that your data may also be processed outside the European Union or the European economic region. Using social networking platforms can thus bear data privacy risks because protecting your rights, e.g. the right to access, deletion, objection etc., might be impeded and because data processing in social networks is often carried out by providers for advertising purposes or to analyze user behavior without us being able to influence these processes. If usage profiles are created by the provider, cookies are often applied or the usage behavior is related directly to your member profile of the social networking platforms (if you are logged in).
2.4.2 Legal basis of data processing
The data processing procedures described above are carried out pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest and the legitimate interest of the respective provider in order to be able to communicate with you in an up-to-date way and to inform you about our services. If you as a user have to agree to data processing with the respective provider, the legal basis refers to Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR in conjunction with Art. 7 GDPR.
As we do not have access to data sets of providers, we would like to point out that your rights (e.g. to access, rectification, deletion, etc.) are best asserted with the respective provider. Further information on the processing of your data in social networks can be found below:
