What information do we collect?
In general, we do not collect any personal information about you when you visit our website. In order to improve our online presence and recognise trends, however, non-personal usage data such as your IP address, the sites visited, the browser used, the date/time, etc. is analysed using Google Analytics in an anonymised manner. However, as a result, no conclusions may be drawn as to you as an individual.
In some cases, we will ask you to voluntarily provide data, such as your name, address, email address etc. This is for the purpose of improving our customer services.
In general, we only use your personal data to improve our service (e.g., for inquiries, customer management, etc.). For this purpose, it may be necessary for us to store your personal data, process it and provide it to our entire company in order to:
- respond better to your queries and individual needs;
- improve our products and services;
- keep you well informed about our offers and news;
- send e-mail newsletters; and
- optimise our customer service.
We do not sell or exchange your personal data, or pass it on to third parties.
How do we protect your data?
We take suitable precautions to protect your personal data, making use of corresponding security technologies for this purpose. We only store your personal data for as long as it appears necessary for its purpose. You have the right to have your data modified or erased.
Like many other website operators, we also use so-called cookies in some cases when you visit our website. In certain cases, your browser will inform you before cookies are stored by displaying an alert on your screen. If such an alert is not shown, you can configure your browser to display this message. If you do not wish to benefit from personal cookies, you can block their use. Please be aware, however, that you will then be unable to use certain services. In general, cookies allow us to adapt our website to your interests, for example, or store your password so that you do not have to enter it again each time.
In order to better understand visits to our website, we work with third-party providers who help us analyse the data. However, these third-party providers are not allowed to use the collected information, except to improve our services and help our company better understand the website visitors.
Do we use Google Analytics?
Yes, if you have given consent, this website utilizes Google Analytics 4, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC.
The responsible entity
for users in the EU/EEA and Switzerland is Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”).
Scope of data processing
We use the User ID function. With the help of the User ID, we can assign a unique, permanent ID to one or more sessions (and the activities within these sessions) and analyze user behavior across devices.
We also use Google Signals. This allows Google Analytics to collect additional information about users who have enabled personalized ads (interests and demographics), enabling us to deliver ads to these users in cross-device remarketing campaigns.
By default, Google Analytics 4 has IP address-anonymization enabled. Due to IP anonymization, your IP address will be truncated by Google within EU member states or in other states party to the agreement within the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. According to Google, the IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
During your website visit, your user behavior is recorded in the form of “events”. Events can be:
• Page views
• First visit to the website
• Start of session
• Your “click path”, or interaction with the website
• Scrolls (whenever a user scrolls to the bottom of the page (90%))
• Clicks on external links
• Internal search queries
• Interaction with videos
• File downloads
• Viewed or clicked ads
• Language settings
• Your approximate location (region)
• Your IP address (in shortened form)
• Technical information about your browser and the end devices you use (e.g. language settings, screen resolution)
• Your internet service provider
• The referrer URL (via which website/advertising medium you came to this website)
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity. The reports provided by Google Analytics are used to analyze the performance of our website and the success of our marketing campaigns.
• Recipients of the data are/may be:
• Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (as processor according to Art. 28 DSGVO).
• Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA
• Alphabet Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA
It cannot be ruled out that US authorities may access the data stored by Google.
Third country transfer
Insofar as data is processed outside the EU/EEA and there is no level of data protection corresponding to the European standard, we have concluded EU-standard contractual clauses with the service provider to establish an appropriate level of data protection. The parent company of Google Ireland, Google LLC, is based in California, USA. A transfer of data to the USA and access by US authorities to the data stored by Google cannot be ruled out. The USA is currently considered a third country from a data protection perspective. You do not have the same rights there as within the EU/EEA. You may not be entitled to any legal recourse against access by authorities.
The data sent by us and linked to cookies is automatically deleted after 14 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month.
The legal basis for this data processing is your consent, pursuant to Art.6 para.1 p.1 lit.a DSGVO.
Retraction or revocation of consent
You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by adjusting your and changing your selection there. The lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation remains unaffected.
You can also prevent the storage of cookies from the outset by setting your browser software accordingly. However, if you configure your browser to reject all cookies, this may result in restricted functioning on this and other websites. In addition, you can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google, by:
