3. Use of Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”).

The information generated by the Cookie about your use of the website will normally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States of America. In case of activation of the IP anonymization on this website, Google will first truncate the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the website provider Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. Google will not associate your IP address, transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics, with any other data held by Google.

You may refuse storage of Cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser software. However, in such case you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

4. Use of Google Web Fonts

Our website uses so-called Web Fonts for uniform imaging of fonts, provided by Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA („Google“).

Google Web Fonts enable us to use external fonts, so-called Google Fonts.
When our website is accessed, the required Google Font will be downloaded from your web browser to your browser cache, in order to show texts and fonts correctly.
This is necessary for your browser to show  a visually improved depiction of the texts.
In case your web browser will not support this function, a standard font from your computer will be used for imaging.

Google Fonts is integrated by a server access, usually a server of Google in the USA. Hereby information is transmitted to the server, which subpage of our website you have visited.
Also the IP-address of the browser of the visitor’s terminal will be stored by Google.

We use Google Web Fonts for the purpose of optimisation, in particular to optimise use of our website and to design it more user-friendly.

Privacy Shield between EU and USA, as well as between Switzerland and the USA:
Google has enrolled to observe the agreement of Privacy Shield between EU and the USA, as well as to the Privacy Shield between Switzerland and the USA, published  by the US Department of Commerce, concerning collection, use, and processing of personal data from the member states of the EU and Switzerland.

5. Use of Google reCAPTCHA

Our website uses “Google reCAPTCHA” (in the following called “reCAPTCHA”). Service provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

ReCAPTCHA is to examine whether data input on our websites (in our contact forms or product enquiries) is made by a human or a bot. For this purpose reCAPTCHA analyses the activity of the visitor on our website, using a number of characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the visitor enters the website. For analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates information (e.g. IP-adress, duration of the visit on our website, or mouse movements made by the user). The data registered during analysis are forwarded to Google.

The reCAPTCHA analyses are running completely in the background. Website visitors are not informed about an analysis taking place.

Data processing is based on Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a justified interest in protection of its web offers against incorrect automated disclosure and SPAM.

Further information on Google reCAPTCHA and the Data Privacy Policy of Google can be found under the links:
https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en and https://www.google.com/recaptcha/intro/android.html

6. Use of Google Maps

Our website uses the map service Google Maps,  which allows the display of interactive maps and the use of the map feature directly on our website. The Google Maps service uses persistent cookies. When visiting the page on our website that uses Google Maps, Google will receive a notification that you have accessed the page. In addition, the information listed under Section III. 1 will be transmitted to Google. This takes place regardless of whether you are logged in to a Google user account. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned to your user account. If you do not want the data to be assigned to your account, you will need to log out before accessing the map feature. Google stores your data as a user profile and utilises it for advertising, market research and/or to provide personalised services on their website. More specifically, such analysis is carried out (even for users who are not logged in) to provide targeted advertising and to provide other social network users with information about your activities on this website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles. This right can be exercised directly with Google.

For more information regarding the purpose and extent to which Google collects, processes and uses data  as well as your rights in this regard and the settings available to protect your privacy, please see Google's privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en. Google also processes your information in the USA and does so within the framework of the EU-US Privacy Shield: https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

7. YouTube

Our website includes external links to the online service YouTube.

The operating company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, UNITED STATES. The YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, UNITED STATES.

If the data subject is logged in on YouTube, YouTube recognizes with each call-up to a sub-page that contains a YouTube video, which specific sub-page of our Internet site was visited by the data subject. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.

YouTube and Google will receive information through the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website, if the data subject at the time of the call to our website is logged in on YouTube; this occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on a YouTube video or not. If such a transmission of this information to YouTube and Google is not desirable for the data subject, the delivery may be prevented if the data subject logs off from their own YouTube account before a call-up to our website is made.

YouTube's data protection provisions, available at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/, provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.

8. Instagram

Our website includes external links to the online service Instagram.
This service is offered by Instagram Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA.
When you are logged into your Instagram account, you can link the contents of our profile to your Instagram profile by a click on the Instagram button.

This way, Instagram can link the visit to our website to your user account.
As the provider of this website, we point out that we have no information about contents of the data transmitted and their use by Instagram.

Further information on this subject can be found in the Data Protection Declaration of Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/about/legal/privacy/

9. E-Mail and Contact Form

Information you send to us via e-mail or via our contact form is transferred to us through our provider by e-mail and deleted immediately after reply, as far as there are no legal obligations to retain data.

Unencrypted information you send to us by e-mail may possibly be legible by a third party during transmission. Usually we are not able to examine your identity and do not know who is behind an e-mail address. For this reason a legally secure communication by e-mail is not guaranteed.

We use filters against unwanted advertising  (“SPAM-filter“) which in rare cases automatically, by error, also classify and delete regular e-mails as unwanted advertising. E-mails containing damaging programmes (“virusses“) are also automatically deleted by us.

10. Links to External Websites

In order to be able to offer you a wide range of information, we have included links to other websites. As soon as you click such a link, we no longer have any influence on the collection, storage, or processing of possibly personal data transmitted by clicking the link (such as the IP address or URL of the page that contains the link), as the behaviour of third parties is beyond our control. Therefore, we are not responsible for the processing of personal data by third parties.

11. SSL Encryption

Our website uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as a site operator, through our contact form. An encrypted connection is indicated when the browser's address line changes from "http: //" to "https: //" and by the lock icon in your browser line.

When the SSL encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us are not possible to be read by third parties.

12. Data Collection in Strict Compliance with Laws

When collecting, saving and processing personal data, we follow the instructions of the German Data Protection Law, the Telemedia Act, and other relevant regulations for the protection of personal data. All client data will be stored and processed under strict observance of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR).
