The data you have entered in the contact form remains with us until you request deletion, you revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for the data storage becomes null and void (e.g. after processing your inquiry has been completed). Mandatory legal regulations – particularly retention periods – remain unaffected.

The disclosure of data to YouTube partners is, however, not necessarily excluded by the extended data protection mode. The YouTube server connects to the Google DoubleClick network – no matter whether you view a video or not.

If you are logged in with your YouTube account you enable YouTube to allocate your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
Furthermore, YouTube can store various cookies on your terminal device after starting a video. Using these cookies YouTube can receive information about visitors to our website. This information is used, among others, to gather data video statistics, to improve user-friendliness and to prevent attempted fraud. The cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them.
After starting a YouTube video, possibly further data processing operations may be triggered which are beyond our control.
The use of YouTube is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This is a justified interest in the terms of Article 1 lit. f GDPR.

6. Analysis tools and advertising
Matomo (formerly Piwik)
This website uses the open source web analysis service Matomo. Matomo uses technologies that enable cross-site recognition of the user to analyze user behavior (e.g. cookies or device fingerprinting). The information collected by Matomo about the use of this website is stored on our server. The IP address is anonymized before it is saved.
This analysis tool is used on the basis of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the anonymous analysis of user behavior in order to optimize both its website and its advertising. If a corresponding consent was requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), the processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter 6 Paragraph 1 Letter a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.
The information recorded by Matomo about the use of this website will not be passed on to third parties.
The storage of Google Analytics cookies is based on Article 6 Section 1 lit. f GDPR. The website provider has a justified interest in the analysis of the user behaviour to optimise both its website and its advertising.
We have activated the function IP anonymisation on this website. Thereby your IP address is abbreviated by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to this agreement beyond the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address is transmitted to the USA and abbreviated there. By order of the provider of this website Goole will use this information to analyse your use of the website, to gather reports on the website activities and to provide the website provider further services connected to website utilisation and web utilisation. In the scope of Google Analytics the IP address transmitted from your browser is not merged with other Google data.
You can prevent storage of the cookies with the corresponding setting of your browser software; however, we wish to inform your that in this case you may possibly not be able to utilise the full functions of this website. Furthermore, you can prevent the capture and transmission of the data generated by the cookie and the reference to your utilisation of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Contract data processing
We have concluded an agreement with Google on contract data processing and fully implement the strict specifications of the German Data Protection Authorities when using Google Analytics.
Demographics of Google Analytics
This website uses the function “Demographics” of Google Analytics. Thereby reports can be created which contain statements on age, gender and interests of the visitor to the site. The origin of this data is interest-related advertising of Google and visitor data of third party providers. This data cannot be allocated to a certain person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the display setting in your Google account or generally prohibit the capture of your data by Google Analytics as drawn up under the point “Objection to Data Collection”.
Google Analytics remarketing
Our websites use the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing in connection with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA is the provider.
This function enables the link between the advertising target groups created with Google Analytics Remarketing with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. Hereby the interest-related, personalised advertising messages which were adapted to you on a terminal device (e.g. mobile phone) in dependence with your former utilisation and surfing behaviour can now also be displayed on another terminal device (e.g. tablet or PC).
If you have granted your corresponding consent, Google links your web and app browser history to your Google account. By this means the same personalised advertising messages can be switched to any terminal device on which you register with your Google account.
To support this function Google Analytics enters Google-authenticated IDs of the users that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create target groups for cross-device advertising.
You can object to cross device Remarketing/Targeting permanently by deactivating your personalised advertising in your Google account; in this connection follow this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.
The summary of the data collected in your Google account occurs exclusively based on your consent which you submit to Google or which you can revoke (Article 6 Section 1 lit. a GDPR). The data collection processes which are not amalgamated in your Google account (e.g. because you do not have a Google account or have objected to the amalgamation) the collection of the data is based on Article 6 Section 1 lit. f GDPR. The justified interest results from the website operator being interested in the anonymised analyses of the website visitor for advertising purposes.
You find further information and the date protection regulations in the Data Protection Notice of Google under: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/.
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website we require an email address and information which enables us to verify that you are the holder of the email address and consent to receiving the newsletter.

The processing of the data entered in the newsletter registration form follows exclusively based on your consent (Article 6 Section 1 lit. a GDPR). The consent to store the data, the email address and their utilisation to transmit the newsletter can be revoked at any time, for instance by using the “Deregistration” link in the newsletter. The legitimacy of the data processing operations carried out prior to deregistration remains unaffected by the revocation.
