The website operator takes your data protection very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with legal regulations. As new technologies and the continuous development of this website may result in changes to this data protection declaration, we recommend to read the data protection declaration at regular intervals.

Definitions of the terms used (e.g. "personal data" or "processing") can be found in Art. 4 GDPR.

Reach measurement & cookies

This website uses cookies for pseudonymised reach measurement, which are transmitted to the user's browser either from our server or the server of third parties. Cookies are small files that are stored on your end device. Your browser accesses these files. The use of cookies increases the user-friendliness and security of this website.

If you do not want cookies to be stored on your end device for range measurement, you can object to the use of these files when accessing the website.
Common browsers offer the setting option not to accept cookies. Note: You may not be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions, if you make the respective opt-out settings.

Collection and processing of personal data

The website operator only collects, uses and passes on your personal data if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of data. Personal data is any information that is used to identify you and which can be traced back to you, such as your name, e-mail address and telephone number.

You can also visit this website without providing any personal information. However, in order to improve our online services, we store your access data to this website (without personal reference). These access data include, for example, the file you requested or the name of your Internet provider. By anonymizing the data, it is not possible to draw conclusions about your person.

Handling of contact data

If you contact us as a website operator through the contact options offered, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and respond to your enquiry. These data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics Service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files stored on your end device, to help the Website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the Cookies will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the USA.

Google LLC complies with European data protection law and is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

IP anonymization is used on this website, which means that Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address of users for Member States of the EU and the European Economic Area and in the other signatory states to the agreement. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. This truncation/anonymization eliminates the personal reference to your IP address. The user's IP address transmitted by the browser is not combined with other data stored by Google.

As part of the agreement on order processing, which we as website operator have concluded with Google Inc., Google uses the information collected to evaluate the use of the website and website activity and to provide services related to the use of the Internet.

The data collected by Google on our behalf is used to evaluate the use of our online services by individual users, e.g. to create reports on the activity on the website in order to improve our online services. You have the option of preventing cookies from being stored on your end device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. You may not be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if your browser does not allow cookies.
Furthermore, you can use a browser plug-in to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to and used by Google Inc. The following link leads you to the corresponding plugin: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout;

Rights of the user

As a user, you have the right to request information on the personal data that has been stored about you at any time upon a free-of-charge basis.

If applicable, you may also assert your right to data portability. If you assume that your data has been processed unlawfully, you have the right to complain to the competent supervisory authority.

Deletion of data

Unless your request conflicts with a legal obligation to store data (e.g. data retention), you have a right to have your data deleted. Data stored by us will be deleted if it is no longer required for its intended use and there are no legal retention periods. If deletion is not possible because the data is required for legal purposes, data processing will be restricted. In this case, the data will be blocked and not processed for other purposes.

Users of this website may exercise their right of objection and object to the processing of their personal data at any time.
