The IP address of the browser of the visitor’s terminal device is stored by Adobe. For more information, please refer to Typekit’s privacy policy, which you can access here: http://www.adobe.com/privacy/typekit.html

Sec. 7 Google Maps
The website uses Google Maps API to display geographical information visually, i.e. to show you a map or city map section. Provider is Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google participates in the EU-US Privacy Shield agreement. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data about the use of the Maps functions by visitors to the websites. You can read more information about data processing by Google under the following link: Privacy policy of Google. There it is possible to make settings in the data protection center so that the data can be used according to your wishes. You can find the Google Maps Terms of Use under “Google Maps Terms of Use“.

Sec. 7a Google Tag Manager

This website uses the Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows marketers to manage website tags through a single interface. The Tool Tag Manager is a cookie-free domain and does not collect any personal data. The tool triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If deactivation has been made at the domain or cookie level, it will remain in effect for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.

Sec. 7b Social Plugin: Facebook, Two-Click Solution

Our website uses social plugins of the platform facebook.com (“Facebook”). This is operated by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.
When you visit a website that has a Facebook plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook’s servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated. As website operators, we have no influence on the amount of data Facebook collects. Here’s what happens after Facebook announces it:
Facebook receives the information that you have called up the corresponding page. If you are logged in, Facebook can assign the visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the “Like button” or writing a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly to Facebook and stored there. If you do not want this, please log out there before use. If you are not a Facebook user, it is still possible for Facebook to obtain and store your IP address.
For more information, see Facebook’s privacy policy, which you can find here: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/update
Using add-ons for your browser you can block the Facebook plugins, in Firefox e.g. with the “Facebook Blocker”: https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/facebook-blocker/.

To enhance the security of your data when visiting our website, the plug-ins are integrated into the site using the “2-click solution.” This integration ensures that, when you request a page on our website that contains such plug-ins, no connection to Facebook servers is made. Your browser will only establish a direct connection with Facebook servers when you activate the plug-ins and grant consent to transmission of your data. The contents of the respective plug-ins are transmitted directly to your browser, and are integrated into the site. By integrating the plug-ins, Facebook receives the information that your browser has requested the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not hold a Facebook account or are not logged in. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a Facebook server in the USA, where it is saved. When you interact with the plug-ins, for example by pressing the “Like” button, the corresponding information is also sent directly to and saved on a Facebook server. This information will also be published on Facebook and displayed to your contacts.

Sec. 8 Storage period of personal data

Unless stated to the contrary, the criterion decisive for our stipulating of storage periods is the respective statutory safekeeping period. Data are deleted after such period has expired, provided they are no longer needed for contract performance or contract initiation.

Sec. 9 Legal or contractual rules on the provision of personal data

The provision of personal data is partly prescribed by law, e.g. tax regulations, or may be the result of contractual arrangements (e.g. statements concerning a contractual party). When signing a contract it may sometimes be necessary for data subjects to place their personal data at our disposal which, at a later stage, need to be processed by our company. For example, the data subject may be under obligation to make personal data available to us when our company signs a contract with them. A consequence of non-provision of personal data would be that no contract might be signed with the data subject. Data subjects must contact a member of our staff prior to such person making personal data available. In every individual case, our employee will advise data subjects if the provision of personal data is legally or contractually prescribed or required for signing a contract. He will also inform on possibly existing obligations to provide personal data and possible consequences of not providing personal data.

Sec. 10 Automated decision-making

There will be no automated decision-making or profiling.

Sec. 11 Legal basis of data processing

Art. 6 (I) lit. a GDPR is our legal basis for processing procedures that require us to obtain consent for specific processing purposes, especially registrations with newsletters. In the event that processing of personal data is required for contract compliance involving the data subject as the contractual partner, the processing of data is based on art. 6 (I) lit. b GDPR. As an example, this is the case with processing procedures that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the performance of a service or return service. The same legal basis also covers processing procedures needed to carry out pre-contractual measures, e.g. upon queries concerning our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, e.g. compliance with tax-related duties, processing shall be based on art. 6 (I) lit. c GDPR.

Sec. 12 Legal basis as per art. 6 (I) lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interests in processing

Processing procedures may ultimately be based on art. 6 (I) lit. f GDPR. Processing procedures not captured by any of the legal principles stated in Sec.14 rest on this legal basis, if the processing is required to protect a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, providing the interest, fundamental rights and freedoms of data subjects do not prevail. A legitimate interest could be assumed, if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible (Recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).
If the processing of any personal data takes place on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest will be the performance of our business activity.

Sec. 13 Further information

The customer is aware that, in light of the current state of technology, no full data protection can yet be guaranteed in data transmissions via internet. As a result, and in terms of security of any data posted on the internet, the client takes full responsibility. For this reason, data subjects are at liberty to transmit their data to us via alternative options, e.g. per telephone.
