We use the offerings of Google Fonts on this website. The larger selection of fonts allows us to offer you a visually appealing website.

By visiting the website, Google receives information about which page or subpage of our website you have accessed. Additionally, the data specified in section 3 of this Privacy Policy is also transmitted. This happens regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or if no user account exists. If you are logged into Google, your data is directly assigned to your account. If you do not want this to be assigned to your profile by Google, you must log out before accessing our website. Google stores your data as usage profiles and utilizes it for purposes of advertising, market research and/or other needs-based design of its website.

5. Newsletter

With your consent you can subscribe to our newsletter, which we use to inform you about our current interesting offerings. The advertised goods and/or services are named in the declaration of consent.

We use the so-called double opt-in procedure for the registration to our newsletter. This means that after your registration, we will send an e-mail to the specified e-mail address in which we ask you to confirm that you would like the newsletter to be sent. If you do not confirm your registration within 24 hours, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. In addition, we store your used IP addresses and the time of registration and confirmation. The purpose of the procedure is to be able to prove your registration and, if necessary, to clarify a possible misuse of your personal data.

The only mandatory information for sending the newsletter is your e-mail address. The indication of additional, separately marked data is voluntary and is used to be able to address you personally.After your confirmation we will save your data for the purpose of sending you the newsletter.

For the analysis, we link the data specified in section 3 and the web beacon with your e-mail address and an individual ID. The data is collected in strictly pseudonymous form. Thus, the IDs are not linked to your other personal data so any direct reference to your person can be excluded.

You may object to this tracking at any time by clicking on the separate link provided in each e-mail or by contacting us in any other way. The information will be saved as long as you are subscribed to the newsletter. If you unsubscribe, we will only store the data statistically and anonymously.

6. Web Analytics

Use of Google Analytics

The website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, LLC. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and allow an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We have activated IP anonymization on this website. Therefore, your IP address will first be truncated by Google within Member States of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the complete IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of analyzing your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity, and providing the website operator with other services relating to website activity and Internet usage.

Google will not associate the IP address transmitted by your browser with any other data held by Google.

You may prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate setting in your browser software. However, we advise that if you do this, you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent the data generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) being sent to Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

This website uses Google Analytics with the “_anonymizeIp()” extension. This means that IP addresses are truncated before being processed and so cannot be associated with any individual person. In the event of a personal association to you of any data collected, such association shall be excluded without delay and the personal data shall be deleted immediately.

We use Google Analytics to analyze and regularly enhance the use of our website. The resulting statistics allow us to improve our offerings and make them more interesting for you, the user. For the exceptions where personal data is transmitted to the USA, Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is art. 6 (1) (1) f) GDPR.

This happens regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or if no user account exists. If you are logged into Google, your data is directly assigned to your account. If you do not want this to be assigned to your profile by Google, you must log out before accessing a page with an embedded map.

8. Online advertising

DoubleClick by Google

This website also uses the online marketing tool DoubleClick by Google. DoubleClick uses cookies to show advertisements that are relevant to the user, to improve reporting on campaign performance, and to avoid showing ads the user has already seen. Using a cookie ID, Google tracks which advertisements are shown in which browser and so can prevent them from being shown repeatedly. Moreover, DoubleClick can use cookie IDs to track conversions relating to advertisement requests. This is the case, for instance, when a user sees a DoubleClick advertisement and then later uses the same browser to visit the website of the advertiser and buys something there. According to Google, DoubleClick cookies contain no personal information.

Based on the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence over the scope and the further use of data that is collected by Google by using this tool and we therefore inform you according to our information status: By incorporating DoubleClick, Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding part of our website or clicked on one of our advertisements. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can associate the visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or you have not logged in, the provider may come to know and store your IP address.

You can prevent your participation in this tracking process in different ways: a) by setting your browser software accordingly, in particular rejecting third party cookies means that you will not receive any advertisements from third-party providers; b) by disabling interest-related advertisements at Google via http://www.google.com/ads/preferences, whereby this setting is deleted when you delete your cookies; c) by disabling the interest-related advertisements from the providers who are part of the self-regulated “About Ads” campaign via http://www.aboutads.info/choices, whereby this setting is deleted when you delete your cookies; d) by permanently disabling ad personalization in your Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Google Chrome browsers via http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. Please note that, in this case, you may not be able to use all functions of this website.

The legal basis for the processing of your data is art. 6 (1) (1) f) GDPR. Additional information about DoubleClick by Google can be found at https://www.google.com/doubleclick and http://support.google.com/adsense/answer/2839090, as well as Google’s Privacy Policy in general: https://www.google.com/intl/us/policies/privacy.

10. Facebook Page Privacy Policy

In order to communicate with Facebook users and advertise our services and/or products on the platform, we run a/several Facebook page(s). The following privacy policy applies to this/these Facebook page(s). Facebook can be contacted at Facebook Inc., 1601 S California Ave, Palo Alto, California 94304, USA.

When you access a Facebook page, your personal data is also processed outside of the European Economic Area. This may make the enforcement of user rights more difficult. Facebook has voluntarily made itself subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield and undertaken to guarantee certain user rights: https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

The data collected when you access a Facebook page is generally used for advertising and market research purposes. The legal basis for this is art. 6 (1) (1) f) GDPR. We also receive anonymized statistics about user behavior on the Facebook page. When any such Facebook page is accessed, Facebook regularly creates what are known as user profiles which are then used for interest-based advertising. Facebook uses cookies for this in order to recognize users. These cookies are stored beyond the end of the actual usage. It may also be the case that user profiles are recorded and stored across several used end devices. This is especially the case with logged-in Facebook members.

You can find further information on Facebook’s data processing procedures, as well as the option to opt out of advertising, on the following pages:

Privacy policy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/

Advertising opt-out https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads and http://www.youronlinechoices.com.

The processing of data on Facebook pages is also carried out on the basis of an agreement on the joint processing of personal data concluded between ourselves and Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum).

Information about us and our Data Protection Officer, as well as pertaining to your rights, can be found in our privacy policy above.

We recommend you issue requests for information and exercise your user rights in direct relation to Facebook, as only Facebook has access to user data and is therefore able to take measures and share information. Your right to contact us directly is unaffected.
