Here we, or our hosting provider, process inventory data, contact data, content data, contract data, usage data, meta and communication data of customers, interested parties and visitors to this online offer on the basis of our legitimate interests in an efficient and secure provision of this online offer acc. Art. 6 para. 1 lit . f GDPR iVm . Art. 28 GDPR (conclusion of contract processing contract).

Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online offer by users, to compile reports on the activities within this online offering and to provide us with further services related to the use of this online offer and the internet usage. In this case, pseudonymous user profiles of the processed data can be created.
We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization. This means that the IP address of the users is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there.
Jetpack ( WordPress Stats )
We use the plugin Jetpack (here the subfunction “WordPress Stats “), which integrates a tool for the statistical evaluation of visitor accesses and from Automattic Inc., 60 29th Street # 343, San Francisco, CA 94110, USA. Jetpack uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you.
Online presence in social media
We maintain online presence within social networks and platforms in order to communicate with customers, prospects and users active there and to inform them about our services.
We point out that data of the users outside the area of the European Union can be processed. This can result in risks for the users, because for example the enforcement of the rights of the users could be made more difficult. As for US providers certified under the Privacy Shield, we point out that they are committed to upholding the EU’s privacy standards.
Furthermore, the data of the users are usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, user profiles can be created from the user behavior and resulting user interests. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that are supposedly in line with the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the computers of the users, in which the user behavior and the interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, in the usage profiles, data can also be stored independently of the devices used by the users (in particular if the users are members of the respective platforms and logged in to them).
The processing of personal data of users is based on our legitimate interests in an effective information of users and communication with users in accordance with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit . f. DSGVO. If the user will be asked by the respective party platforms to consent to the above-described data processing, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 § 1. Lit . a., Art. 7 GDPR.
For a detailed description of the respective processing and the possibilities of contradiction ( opt- out), we refer to the following linked information of the provider.
Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be claimed most effectively from the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information. If you still need help, then you can contact us.
Integration of services and contents of third parties
Within our online offer based on our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. DSGVO), we make use of third-party content or service offerings to provide their content and services such as videos or fonts (collectively referred to as “content”).
This always presupposes that the third-party providers of this content perceive the IP address of the users, since they could not send the content to their browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. We endeavor to use only content whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the content. Third parties may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also referred to as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. The “pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information, such as visitor traffic, on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and may include, but is not limited to, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring web pages, time of visit, and other information regarding the use of our online offer.
