3. Personal data being collected when you visit our website
(1) When you use the website for the sole purpose of getting information, in other words, if you do not register or transmit any other information, we will only collect those personal data that your browser sends to our server. If you want to view our website, we will collect the following data, which are technically necessary for us to display our website on your device and to ensure its stability and security (legal basis: Art. 6 (1) 1st sentence letter f GDPR).
– IP address;
– date and time of the request;
– time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT);
– content of the request (the specific site);
– access status/HTTP status code;
– the volume of data transmitted at a time;
– the requesting website;
– operating system and user interface;
– browser software language and version.
(2) In addition to the above, cookies will be stored on your computer if you use our website. Cookies are small text files that are correlated with your browser and stored, and which are used to relate certain information to the service placing the cookie (in this case: us). Cookies cannot execute programmes or infect your computer with viruses. Their purpose is to make the online experience more user-friendly and effective.
(3) Cookie use:
a) This website uses the following types of cookies, the extent and function of which are explained below:
– temporary cookies (see b);
– permanent cookies (see c).
b) Temporary cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. This includes session cookies in particular. These store your so-called session ID which can be used to correlate the requests coming from your browser to one and the same session. This helps us recognise your computer when you come back to our website. Session cookies are deleted when you log off or close the browser.
c) Permanent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified space of time, which may vary depending on the specific cookie. They can be deleted at any time via your browser's security settings.
d) You can configure your browser settings as you see fit, for example, by refusing third-party cookies, or even all cookies. Please note that you may not be able to use the full functionality of the website in such cases.
(1) This website uses the web analysis service Matomo to help us analyse how our website is used and improve it regularly. The resulting statistics allow us to optimise our offering and enhance the user experience. The legal basis for the use of Matomo is Art. 6 (1) 1st sentence letter F GDPR.
(2) Cookies (see 3. above for details) will be stored on your computer to enable the analysis. The controller stores the data thus collected exclusively on its server in [Germany]. You can disable the analysis by deleting existing cookies and by preventing cookies being stored. If you disable the storage of cookies, you should note that you may not be able to use the full functionality of the website. Cookie storage can be disabled via the browser settings. The use of Matomo can be disabled by unticking the following box to activate the opt-out plug-in: [MatomoiFrame].
(3) This website uses Matomo with the extension "AnonymizeIP", which will truncate IP addresses before they are processed so that they cannot be correlated to any specific person. (2) The IP address transmitted by your browser through Matomo will not be collated with other data we collect.
(4) Matomo is an open-source project. Information of the third-party provider on data privacy can be found on https://matomo.org/privacy-policy/.
(1) At this time, we use the following social media plug-ins: [Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Xing, T3N, LinkedIn, Flattr]. In this, we rely on what is called the two-click solution. In other words, personal data will initially not normally be shared with the plug-in provider when you visit our website. You will know the plug-in provider by the marking in the box above its initials or logo. You have the option to communicate directly with the plug-in provider by clicking the button. The plug-in provider will only get the information that you accessed the particular website of our online offering if you click the marked box. In addition, the data described under 3. above will be transmitted. In the case of Facebook and Xing, the IP address is anonymised immediately, according to information from the respective providers in Germany. This means that, by enabling the plug-in, your personal data will be transmitted to the corresponding plug-in provider, where they are stored (i.e., in the United States for US providers). Given that the plug-in provider mostly relies on cookies for the collection of data, we recommend you to delete all cookies via your browser's security settings before you click the greyed-out box.
(2) We have no influence on the data or data-processing operations, and neither are we aware of the full extent of the data being collected, the processing purposes or the retention periods. Also, we have no information on the deletion of the data by the plug-in provider.
(3) The plug-in provider stores your personal data in the form of user profiles, which it uses for the purpose of advertising, market research, and/or customisation of its website. In particular, this evaluation (even for users who are not logged in) is done to deliver customised advertising and alert other users of the social network to your activities on our website. You have the right to object to such user profiles being generated. To assert this right you should turn to the respective plug-in provider. We use plug-ins so that you can interact with social networks and other users, allowing us to optimise our offering and enhance the user experience. The legal basis for the use of plug-ins is Art. 6 (1) 1st sentence letter F GDPR.
(4) The sharing of data is independent of whether or not you maintain an account with the plug-in provider, as well as your log-in status. When you are logged in with the plug-in provider, the data we collect will be associated directly with your account maintained by the plug-in provider. As soon as you click the enabled button and, for example, link the page, the plug-in provider stores this information in your user account, too and shares it publicly with your contacts. We recommend you to generally log out of your social networks, especially if you want to enable the button. This will help you avoid any association with the profile maintained by the plug-in provider.
(5) The data privacy statements of these providers give you additional information with respect to the purpose and scope of the data being collected and processed by the plug-in provider. They also explain your pertinent rights and possible settings you can make to protect your privacy.
