  1. The browser types and versions used
  2. The operating system used by the accessing system

These anonymously collected data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a website user.

Understanding the use of cookies

Our Internet pages use cookies. Cookies are text files which are stored on your computer's hard drive by a website during your visit. We use both session cookies (which become invalid when you close your web browser) and persistent cookies, which remain on your computer until you delete them.

Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular Internet browser can be recognized and identified by its unique cookie ID. The use of cookies enables us to provide users of our website more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the setting of cookies. Visitors of our websites can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by preventing the corresponding settings of the Internet browser used and thereby permanently contradicting the setting of cookies.

In addition, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This possibility is given in all common Internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable under certain circumstances.

Web Analysis and Website Optimization

If your consent given, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service (tracking tool) of Google Ireland Limited (registration number 368047) on this website. With this technology it is possible for us to maintain and expand our website. By using reports, we are able to measure and evaluate our website and optimise our content. In order to protect our users and partners, we can also identify and avert fraud and security risks.

Google Analytics uses so called cookies, which are text files placed on your computer enabling the website to analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookies about your use of our website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Since the protection of your data is important to us, we have extended Google Analytics by the configuration parameter “anonymizeIp”. Your IP address is only abbreviated by the code. We therefore process your personal usage data anonymously. It is not possible for us to draw any conclusions about your person.

On mandate of our company, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, in order to compile reports on website activities and to provide us with other services relating to website activity and Internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. Further information on how Google processes your data when you visit websites can be found at  https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/ or https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245

The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit a DSGVO. The recipient of the collected data is Google. The personal data is transferred to the USA under the EU-US Privacy Shield based on the European Commission's adequacy decision.

The data and linked  cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs sent by us are automatically deleted after 14 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month.

You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by preventing the storage of cookies through a corresponding setting in your browser software; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to the full extent. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout? Opt-out cookies prevent the future collection of your data when you visit this website. To prevent Universal Analytics from collecting your information across multiple devices, you must opt-out on all systems you use.

Your statutory rights of access, rectification, cancellation and limitation of processing

At appropriate intervals you have the right to receive free information about the data stored about you and about how we collect, process and store this data (Art. 15 DSGVO). If this data concerning you is incorrect or incomplete, you may request correction or amendment in accordance with Art. 16 DSGVO.

According to Art. 17 DSGVO, you have the right to request the deletion of your data in certain situations. For example, you can demand deletion if the data is no longer required for the intended purpose or if processed unlawfully, or if you have withdrawn your previously given consent or declared an objection to the processing. However, we can only delete your personal data if there is no legal obligation to store it or if there is no overriding right to store it.

Under the terms of Art. 18 DSGVO, you may also request the restriction of data processing.

Your right to revoke consents

Some data processing operations are only possible with your expressed consent. You can revoke your consent at any time (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e DSGVO). This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent that you gave us before the DSGVO came into force, i.e. before 28 May 2018.

An informal notification to the accountable department is adequate for the revocation.

Please note that a revocation is only effective for the future. Processing that took place before the revocation is not affected.

Your right to data transferability

Pursuant to Art. 20 DSGVO, in certain cases you have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract, in a structured, common and machine-readable format. At the same time, you have the right to transfer this data to another responsible person or, if technically feasible, to have it transferred by us.

Right of complaint to the relevant supervisory authority

If you are of the opinion that the processing of your data violates the DSGVO or other data protection rights, you can contact a data protection supervisory authority. The supervisory authority responsible for us is the State Commissioner for Data Protection of Lower Saxony. However, you may also address your complaint to any other data protection supervisory authority. The following link provides a list of the data protection officers and their contact details:

SSL - or TLS - encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content that you send to us as site operator, our website uses SSL or TLS encryption. This means that data that you transmit via this website cannot be read by third parties. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the "https://" address line of your browser and by the lock symbol in the navigation bar.

Amendments to our Privacy Policy and Disclaimer

We reserve the right to amend this data protection declaration from time to time so that it always complies with current legal requirements or in order to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. Your renewed visit will then be subject to the new data protection declaration.

This disclaimer is to be regarded as part of the internet publication. If individual formulations or parts of this text do not or no longer completely correspond to the current legal position, the remaining parts of this declaration remain unaffected. Furthermore, our General Terms and Conditions shall apply when a legal transaction is concluded.
