Data transfer to third parties
We would like to point out that as a result of using Google Analytics, data will be transferred when using our website.
The transfer of data to third parties complies with the legal regulations. We only pass on user data if it is necessary for contractual purposes or if there is a legitimate interest to safeguard the economic and effective operation of our business.
If we use subcontractors to supply our services, we will make sure that the relevant legal measures are in place and that the appropriate technical and organisational measures are implemented to safeguard the protection of your personal data to comply with the relevant legal requirements.
Data transfer to a third country or an international organisation
Third countries are countries where the GDPR is not immediately governing law. In principle, this applies to all countries outside the EU or the European Economic Area.
Without your consent or statutory basis, there will be no data transfer to a third country or international organisation.
How long are your personal data saved?
We adhere to the principles of data minimisation and data prevention. This means that we will save your data only as long as we need them to fulfil the purposes described above or to comply with the multiple storage durations required by law. If the purpose is obsolete or after the required storage durations have expired, your data are routinely blocked or deleted in compliance with the legal requirements.
We have developed our own company-specific concept which will safeguard this approach.

If you contact us by email or via the contact form, you agree with electronic communication. When contacting us, personal data are collected. If you contact us via contact form, you can see which data are collected on the contact form. Your data are transferred with SSL encryption.

Here is a list of the relevant legislation:
Processing to perform our contractual obligations and carrying out contractual measures

Processing to protect our legitimate interests
Art. 6 Section 1 lit. f. GDPR
We use a software for customer data administration (CRM system) or a similar software based on our legitimate interests (efficient and fast response to user queries).
The system is managed in-house by ourselves. Therefore, there is no transfer of data to third parties.
We would like to point out that it is possible that emails are read or changed without authorisation and without noticing during transfer. Furthermore, we would like to inform you that we use a software to filter out unwanted emails (spam filter). A spam filter can block emails if they are identified as spam based on certain attributes.

Google Analytics uses 'cookies', text files, which are stored on your computer and which allow an analysis of the usage of the online offering. The information about the use of the online offering produced by cookies is usually transferred to a server in the USA and is stored there. This means there is a data transfer to a third country.

If IP anonymization is activated when using our online offering, Google shortens the IP address directly in the member country of the European Union or other contracting state of the agreement concerning the European Economic Area.
Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is transferred to a server of Google in the USA and is then shortened there. We have instructed Google to use this information to analyse the use of our online offering, to prepare reports about the activities relating to the online offering and to provide further services related to the use of the online offering and internet usage to us. The IP address transferred by your browser in relation to Google Analytics will not be combined with other data from Google. You can prevent that cookies are saved by using a specific setting in your browser software. However, we would like to point out that in this case not all functions in this online offering may be used fully.
We want to make you aware that this online offering uses Google Analytics with the add-on '_anonymizeIp()' and therefore IP addresses are only processed in a shortened form so that a link to individual persons is impossible.
We also use Google Analytics reports to capture demographic attributes and interests.
