In addition to the aforementioned data, cookies are stored on your computer when you visit our Website. Cookies are small text files, which are stored on your hard drive, attached to the browser you are using. Thus, certain data will be transferred to the person storing the cookie. Cookies cannot run programmes or transfer viruses to your computer. They are used to make our Website more user-friendly and more effective. The legal basis for this data processing is Article 6 (1) 1 lit. f GDPR.

On our Website we use Google Analytics, supplemented by “anonymizeIP”, a web analysis service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereafter: “Google“). This enables IP addresses to be processed by Google in a shortened form in the European Union or in other states, party to the European Economic Area Agreement. Only in exceptional cases your full IP address will be transferred to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Personal references to you are not possible. If collected data includes personal references, this data will be immediately excluded and the personal data will be deleted.
The legal basis for our use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. f of the GDPR. Google will use collected data to assess your use of our website, compile website activity reports and provide additional services for use of the website and the Internet on our behalf.

1.3 Social Media
We do not use any so-called social media plugins. We offer you the option, however, of visiting social networks such as LinkedIN in various places on our Website. If you click on the logo of a social network, you will be redirected to our details over a link. No personal data will be transferred to the social networks before you click on the respective logo or link, which will redirect you to the website of the respective social network. The possibility that personal data are transferred to the respective social network and processed by this only arises from the point in time when you click on the respective logo on our Website and are redirected to the website of the social network. The processing of personal data in particular does not occur until you are logged into your respective social media account and post the contents of your account on the social network. In addition to this, data such as your IP address can also be processed, however, if you do not have a social media account.
We have neither influence on the collected data and data processing procedures, nor knowledge of the full extent of the data collection, the purpose of the processing or the storage periods. Nor do we have any information about the deletion of collected data by the respective social network.
1.4 Integration of YouTube videos
On our website, we have integrated YouTube videos that are stored at http://www.youtube.com and can be played directly from our Website. YouTube is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter referred to as “Google”). The video is only played if you click on the respective picture on our website. Only in that moment, the personal data set out below will be transferred. We have no influence on that data transfer.
When you visit our Website, YouTube is informed that you have accessed the relevant sub-page of our Website. The data referred to in Section 1.1 will also be transmitted. This is done regardless of whether or not you have a YouTube user account through which you are logged in. If you are logged into Google, your data will be associated directly with your account. If you prefer that your activity is not associated with your YouTube profile, you must log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the design of its Website. Such an analysis is undertaken (even for users who are not logged in) especially to provide targeted advertising and to inform other users of the social network of your activities on our Website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact YouTube if you wish to exercise this right.
