1. Scope of processing of personal data
We only process personal data of our users to the extent necessary to ensure the functioning of our website and as required for our contents and services, e.g. when an enquiry is submitted to us using the contact form, for job applications submitted by email, optimisation of the website to tailor it to users’ needs, and for the compilation of usage statistics for marketing purposes.
To protect confidential contents such as, for example, enquiries that you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses SSL encryption. An encrypted connection can be recognised by the fact that the address bar in your browser changes from http:// to https:// and that a small padlock symbol is shown in the browser line. When this encryption is activated, the data that you submit to us cannot be read by third parties.
3. Provision of the website and creation of log files
Every time somebody visits our website our system automatically collects data and information from the visiting computer. The following data are collected when our website is visited:
The user’s IP address
Information about the browser type
Information about the version of the browser type used
The user’s operating system
The user’s internet service provider
The date and time of access
The website from which the user accessed our website
Websites accessed via our website by the user’s system
These data are stored in the log files of our system. These data are not stored together with other personal data of the user. This data processing is undertaken on the legal basis of our legitimate interests in the analysis of our website and its use in accordance with point (f) of Article 6 (1) of the GDPR, and, where applicable, on the basis of the legal consent to the storage of data within the framework of taking steps prior to entering a contract in accordance with point (b) of Article 6 of the GDPR.
Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer. These can take the form, firstly, of so-called session cookies which are deleted automatically when you leave our website. But there are also cookies which are stored permanently on your computer unless you delete them yourself. This makes it possible for us to recognise that you have already previously visited our website when you visit it again the next time, so that we can tailor our offers specifically to you. You can adjust the browser settings in your browser to prevent the installation of cookies either in general or when visiting specific websites only. However, this could mean that you may no longer be able to use all our website functions.

1. Google Analytics
This website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer to help analyse your use of the website. The information generated by these cookies about your use of this website is normally transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and stored there.
Google Analytics cookies are stored on the basis of point (f) of Article 6 (1) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of users’ behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising.
We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. This means that your IP address will be truncated by Google within the Member States of the European Union or in other states which are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transfer to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the website operator, Google will use this information to analyse how you use the website, to generate reports about your website activities and to provide further services to the website operator associated with the use of the website and of the internet. The IP address transferred from your browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the applicable setting on your browser; however, we wish to point out that this may result in the fact that you may not be able to fully utilise all functions of this website. In addition, you can refuse the transmission of data relating to your usage of the website (including your IP address) by the cookie to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available from Google at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

We have concluded a contract with Google covering contract processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities with regard to the use of Google Analytics.
This website uses the “Demographics” function of Google Analytics. This enables reports to be compiled about the age, gender and interests of the visitors to the website. This data is derived from interest-based adverts from Google and from data relating to visits from third-party providers. These data cannot be attributed to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time in the display settings in your Google account or prevent the collection of your data generally by Google Analytics, as shown in the section “Objection to data collection”.
We use plugins from the YouTube website of YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, operated by Google.
If you use any of our pages featuring a YouTube plugin component, a connection with YouTube’s servers will be established. This means that the YouTube server will receive notification about which of our pages you have visited.
When you are logged into your YouTube account, you make it possible for YouTube to attribute your surfing activity directly to your personal profile. To prevent this you need to log out of your YouTube account.
We use YouTube in the interests of the attractive presentation of our website. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of point (f) of Article 6 (1) of the GDPR.
2. Google Maps
We use an API to use the Google Maps map service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
To be able to use the functions of Google Maps it is necessary for your IP address to be stored. This information is normally transmitted to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored. We have no influence over this data transmission.
Google Maps is used in the interests of the attractive presentation of our website and to make it easier to find the locations given on our website. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of point (f) of Article 6 (1) of the GDPR.
