We have written this data protection declaration (version 02/17/2021-111643903) to explain to you by the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 what information we collect, how we use data and what decision-making options you have as a visitor to this website.
Privacy statements usually sound very technical. This version, on the other hand, aims to describe the most important things as simply and clearly as possible. As far as possible, technical terms are explained in a reader-friendly manner. In addition, we would like to convey that we only collect and use information with this website if there is a corresponding legal basis. This is certainly not possible if you give the most concise, technical explanations possible, as they are often standard on the Internet when it comes to data protection. I hope you find the following explanations interesting and informative and maybe there are one or two pieces of information that you did not know.
If you still have questions, we would like to ask you to follow the existing links and look at further information on third-party websites, or simply write us an e-mail. You will find our contact information in the imprint.
When you visit websites today, certain information is automatically created and stored, including on this website. This collected data should be collected as sparingly as possible and only with justification.
Even while you are visiting our website, our web server - the computer on which this website is stored - usually automatically saves data such as the complete Internet address (URL) of the website accessed for reasons of operational security, to create access statistics, etc (e.g. https://www.beispielwebsite.de/beispielunterseite.html/) browser and browser version (e.g. Chrome 87)the operating system used (e.g. Windows 10), the address (URL) of the previously visited page (referrer URL) (e.g. https://www.beispielquellsite.de/vondabinichkommen.html/), the hostname and the IP address of the device from which access is made (e.g. COMPUTERNAME and 194.23. 43.121), date and time in files, the so-called web server log files.
Our website uses HTTP cookies to store user-specific data.
If you want to find out which cookies have been stored in your browser, if you want to change or delete cookie settings, you can find this in your browser settings:
Personal data that you transmit to us electronically on this website, such as name, e-mail address, address or other personal information when submitting a form or comments on the blog, will be stored by us together with the time and the IP Address used only for the specified purpose, kept safe and only forwarded to our sales partners within the framework of geographical allocation.
We therefore only use your data to communicate with those visitors who expressly request contact and to process the services and products offered on this website. We only pass on your data to our sales partners, but cannot rule out that this data will be viewed in the event of illegal behavior.
We use the analysis tracking tool Google Analytics (GA) from the American company Google Inc. on our website. The company Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services in Europe. Google Analytics collects data about your actions on our website. For example, if you click on a link, this action is stored in a cookie and sent to Google Analytics. The reports we receive from Google Analytics allow us to better tailor our website and service to your needs. In the following, we will go into more detail about the tracking tool and, above all, inform you about which data is stored and how you can prevent this.
Google Analytics is a tracking tool used to analyze traffic on our website. For Google Analytics to work, a tracking code is built into the code of our website. When you visit our website, this code records various actions that you take on our website. As soon as you leave our website, this data is sent to the Google Analytics servers and stored there.
Google processes the data and we receive reports on your user behavior.
Our goal with this website is clear: We want to offer you the best possible service. The statistics and data from Google Analytics help us to achieve this goal.
The statistically evaluated data give us a clear picture of the strengths and weaknesses of our website. On the one hand, we can optimize our site so that interested people can find it more easily on Google. On the other hand, the data helps us to better understand you as a visitor. We therefore know exactly what we need to improve on our website to offer you the best possible service. The data also helps us to carry out our advertising and marketing measures more individually and cost-effectively. After all, it only makes sense to show our products and services to people who care.
Google Analytics uses a tracking code to create a random, unique ID that is linked to your browser cookie. This is how Google Analytics recognizes you as a new user. The next time you visit our site, you will be recognized as a "returning" user. All collected data is stored together with this user ID. This makes it possible to evaluate pseudonymous user profiles in the first place.
Identifiers such as cookies and app instance IDs are used to measure your interactions on our website. Interactions are any type of action you take on our website. If you also use other Google systems (such as a Google account), data generated via Google Analytics can be linked to third-party cookies. Google does not pass on Google Analytics data unless we as the website operator authorize this. Exceptions may arise if required by law.
Here we show you an overview of the most important data that is collected with Google Analytics:
Heatmaps: Google creates so-called heatmaps. Heatmaps show exactly those areas that you click on. This is how we get information about where you are on our site.
Session duration: Google defines the session duration as the time you spend on our site without leaving the site. If you have been inactive for 20 minutes, the session ends automatically.
Bounce rate: A bounce is when you only view one page on our website and then leave our website again.
Account creation: If you create an account or place an order on our website, Google Analytics collects this data.
IP address: The IP address is only shown in abbreviated form so that no clear assignment is possible.
Location: The country and your approximate location can be determined via the IP address. This process is also referred to as IP location determination.
Technical information: The technical information includes, among other things, your browser type, your Internet provider or your screen resolution.
Source of origin: Google Analytics or we are of course also interested in which website or which advertisement you came to our site from.
Other data are contact details, any ratings, playing media (e.g. if you play a video on our site), sharing content via social media or adding it to your favorites. The list does not claim to be complete and only serves as a general guide to data storage by Google Analytics.
Google has distributed its servers all over the world. Most of the servers are located in America and consequently, your data is mostly stored on American servers. Here you can read exactly where the Google data centers are located: https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/?hl=de
Your data is distributed across different physical media. This has the advantage that the data can be called up more quickly and is better protected against manipulation. Every Google data center has emergency programs for your data. For example, if Google's hardware fails or natural disasters paralyze servers, the risk of a service interruption at Google remains low.
A standard storage period for your user data of 26 months is set for Google Analytics.
Google Analytics is an active participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, which regulates the correct and secure transfer of personal data. For more information, see https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&tid=111643903. We hope we were able to provide you with the most important information about data processing by Google Analytics. If you want to learn more about the tracking service, we recommend these two links: http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html and https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245 ?hl=de.
We have implemented Google Analytics IP address anonymization on this website. This function was developed by Google so that this website can comply with applicable data protection regulations and recommendations from local data protection authorities if they prohibit the storage of the full IP address. The IP is anonymized or masked as soon as the IP addresses arrive in the Google Analytics data collection network and before the data is stored or processed.
You can find more information on IP anonymization at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2763052?hl=de.
You can find out more about the data processing addendum for Google Analytics here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/3379636?hl=de&utm_id=ad
We have activated the Google signals in Google Analytics. The existing Google Analytics functions (advertising reports, remarketing, cross-device reports and reports on interests and demographic characteristics) are updated to receive aggregated and anonymous data from you, provided you have allowed personalized ads in your Google account.
The special thing about it is that it is a cross-device tracking. That means your data can be analyzed across devices. By activating Google signals, data is collected and linked to the Google account. This allows Google to recognize, for example, when you view a product on our website using a smartphone and only later buy the product using a laptop. Thanks to the activation of Google signals, we can start cross-device remarketing campaigns that would otherwise not be possible in this form. Remarketing means that we can also show you our offer on other websites.
Google Analytics also collects additional visitor data such as location, search history, YouTube history and data about your actions on our website through the Google signals. This gives us better advertising reports and more useful information about your interests and demographics from Google. This includes your age, what language you speak, where you live or what gender you belong to. There are also social criteria such as your job, your marital status or your income. All of these features help Google Analytics to define groups of people or target groups.
The reports also help us to better assess your behavior, your wishes and interests. This enables us to optimize and adapt our services and products for you. By default, this data expires after 26 months. Please note that this data collection only takes place if you have allowed personalized advertising in your Google account. This is always aggregated and anonymous data and never personal data. You can manage or delete this data in your Google account.
We only want to show our services and products to those people who are interested in them. With the help of Facebook pixels, our advertising measures can be better tailored to your wishes and interests. In this way, Facebook users (if they have allowed personalized advertising) will see appropriate advertising. Furthermore, Facebook uses the collected data for analysis purposes and its advertisements.
In the following, we show you the cookies that were set by integrating Facebook pixels on a test page. Please note that these are just example cookies. Depending on the interaction on our website, different cookies are set.
If you are logged in to Facebook, you can change your settings for advertisements yourself at https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen. If you are not a Facebook user, you can generally manage your usage-based online advertising at http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/. There you have the option of deactivating or activating providers.
We use selected Facebook tools on our website. Facebook is a social media network operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland. These tools allow us to offer you and people who are interested in our products and services the best possible offer. Below we provide an overview of the various Facebook tools, what data is sent to Facebook and how you can delete this data.
In principle, Facebook stores data until it is no longer required for its services and Facebook products. Facebook has servers all over the world where its data is stored. However, customer data will be deleted within 48 hours after it has been compared with your user data.
How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?
By the General Data Protection Regulation, you have the right to information, correction, transferability and deletion of your data.
The data will only be completely deleted if you completely delete your Facebook account. And this is how deleting your Facebook account works:
1) Click Settings on the right side of Facebook.
2) Then click on "Your Facebook Information" in the left column.
3) Now click “Deactivation and Deletion”.
4) Now select “Delete Account” and then click “Next and Delete Account”
5) Now enter your password, click on "Next" and then on "Delete Account"
The data that Facebook receives via our site is stored, among other things, via cookies (e.g. in the case of social plugins). You can deactivate, delete or manage individual or all cookies in your browser. Depending on which browser you use, this works in different ways.
If you generally do not want any cookies, you can set up your browser so that it always informs you when a cookie is to be set. You can decide for each cookie whether you allow it or not.
Facebook is an active participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, which regulates the correct and secure transfer of personal data. You can find more information on this at https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC. We hope we have given you the most important information about the use and data processing by the Facebook tools. If you want to learn more about how Facebook uses your data, we recommend the data guidelines at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/update.
So-called social plug-ins from the company Facebook Inc. are installed on our website. You can recognize these buttons by the classic Facebook logo, such as the "Like" button (the hand with the thumb raised) or by a clear "Facebook plug-in" label. A social plugin is a small piece of Facebook that is integrated into our site. Each plugin has its function. The most used features are the familiar “Like” and “Share” buttons.
Visit https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins for more information on how the individual plug-ins are used. On the one hand, we use the social plug-ins to offer you a better user experience on our site and, on the other hand, because Facebook can use them to optimize our advertisements.
If you have a Facebook account or have visited facebook.com before, Facebook has already set at least one cookie in your browser. In this case, your browser sends information to Facebook via this cookie as soon as you visit our site or interact with social plug-ins (e.g. the "Like" button).
The information received will be deleted or made anonymous within 90 days. According to Facebook, this data includes your IP address, which website you visited, the date, time and other information relating to your browser.
To prevent Facebook from collecting a lot of data during your visit to our website and connecting it to Facebook data, you must log out of Facebook while you are visiting the website (log out).
If you are not logged into Facebook or do not have a Facebook account, your browser will send less information to Facebook because you have fewer Facebook cookies. Nevertheless, data such as your IP address or which website you visit can be transmitted to Facebook. We would like to expressly point out that we do not know the exact content of the data. However, based on our current state of knowledge, we try to inform you as much as possible about data processing. You can also read about how Facebook uses the data in the company's data guidelines at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/update.
We have integrated Instagram functions on our website. Instagram is a social media platform operated by Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Rd, Menlo Park CA 94025, USA. Instagram has been a subsidiary of Facebook Inc. since 2012 and is one of the Facebook products. Embedding Instagram content on our website is called embedding. This enables us to show you content such as buttons, photos or videos from Instagram directly on our website. If you call up web pages on our website that have an integrated Instagram function, data will be transmitted to Instagram, stored and processed. Instagram uses the same systems and technologies as Facebook. Your data will thus be processed across all Facebook companies.
In the following, we would like to give you a more detailed insight into why Instagram collects data, what data it is and how you can largely control the data processing. Since Instagram belongs to Facebook Inc., we get our information from the Instagram guidelines on the one hand, but also the Facebook data guidelines on the other.
Instagram is one of the most well-known social media networks worldwide. Instagram combines the advantages of a blog with the advantages of audiovisual platforms such as YouTube or Vimeo. You can upload photos and short videos to “Insta” (as many users casually call the platform), edit them with various filters and also share them on other social networks. And if you don't want to be active yourself, you can just follow other interesting users.
Instagram is the social media platform that has taken off in recent years. And of course, we also reacted to this boom. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible on our website. Therefore, a varied preparation of our content is a matter of course for us. The embedded Instagram functions allow us to enrich our content with helpful, funny or exciting content from the Instagram world. Since Instagram is a subsidiary of Facebook, the data collected can also be useful for personalized advertising on Facebook. In this way, our advertisements only get to people who are interested in our products or services.
Instagram also uses the collected data for measurement and analysis purposes. We get summarized statistics and thus more insight into your wishes and interests. It is important to note that these reports do not personally identify you.
When you come across one of our pages that has Instagram features (such as Instagram images or plugins) built in, your browser automatically connects to Instagram's servers. Data is sent to Instagram, stored and processed. This is regardless of whether you have an Instagram account or not. This includes information about our website, about your computer, about purchases made, advertisements that you see and how you use our offer. Furthermore, the date and time of your interaction with Instagram are also saved. If you have an Instagram account or are logged in, Instagram stores significantly more data about you.
Facebook distinguishes between customer data and event data. We assume that this is the case with Instagram as well. Customer data are, for example, name, address, telephone number and IP address. This customer data will only be transmitted to Instagram if it has been "hashed" beforehand. Hashing means converting a record into a string. This allows you to encrypt the contact data. In addition, the “event data” mentioned above are also transmitted. Facebook – and consequently also Instagram – understands “event data” to be data about your user behavior. It can also happen that contact data is combined with event data. The contact data collected will be compared with the data that Instagram already has from you.
The collected data is transmitted to Facebook via small text files (cookies), which are usually set in your browser. Depending on the Instagram functions used and whether you have an Instagram account yourself, different amounts of data are stored.
We assume that data processing works the same on Instagram as on Facebook. This means: that if you have an Instagram account or have visited www.instagram.com, Instagram has set at least one cookie. If this is the case, your browser sends information to Instagram via the cookie as soon as you come into contact with an Instagram function. This data will be deleted or made anonymous again after 90 days at the latest (after comparison). Although we have dealt intensively with Instagram's data processing, we cannot say exactly what data Instagram collects and stores.
In the following, we show you cookies that are set in your browser at least when you click on an Instagram function (such as a button or an Insta image). In our test, we assume that you do not have an Instagram account. Of course, if you are logged in to Instagram, significantly more cookies will be set in your browser.
Instagram shares the information it receives between the Facebook companies with external partners and with people you connect with around the world. Data processing is carried out in compliance with our data policy. For security reasons, among other things, your data is distributed across the world on Facebook servers. Most of these servers are located in the USA.
Thanks to the General Data Protection Regulation, you have the right to information, transferability, correction and deletion of your data. You can manage your data in the Instagram settings. If you want to completely erase your data on Instagram, you need to permanently delete your Instagram account.
And this is how the Instagram account deletion works:
First, open the Instagram app. On your profile page, go down and click on "Help Center". You are now on the company's website. On the webpage, click "Manage Account" and then click "Delete Your Account".
If you delete your account entirely, Instagram will delete posts such as your photos and status updates. Information that other people have shared about you is not part of your account and consequently will not be deleted.
As already mentioned above, Instagram stores your data primarily via cookies. You can manage, deactivate or delete these cookies in your browser. Management always works a bit differently depending on your browser. Here we show you the instructions for the most important browsers.
You can also basically set up your browser so that you are always informed when a cookie is to be set. Then you can always decide individually whether you want to allow the cookie or not.
Instagram is a subsidiary of Facebook Inc. and Facebook is an active participant in the EU- U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. This framework ensures correct data transmission between the USA and the European Union. Learn more at https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC. We have tried to give you the most important information about data processing by Instagram. You can learn more about Instagram's data policies at https://help.instagram.com/519522125107875.
On our website, we use social plug-ins from the social media network LinkedIn, the company LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The social plug- ins can be feeds, content sharing or linking to our LinkedIn page. The social plug-ins are marked with the well-known LinkedIn logo and allow, for example, interesting content to be shared directly via our website. LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company Wilton Place in Dublin is responsible for data processing in the European Economic Area and Switzerland.
By embedding such plug-ins, data can be sent to LinkedIn, stored and processed there. In this data protection declaration, we want to inform you what data is involved, how the network uses this data and how you can manage or prevent data storage.
LinkedIn is the largest social network for business contacts. Unlike Facebook, for example, the company focuses exclusively on establishing business contacts. Companies can present services and products on the platform and establish business relationships. Many people also use LinkedIn to look for a job or to find suitable employees for their own company. In Germany alone, the network has over 11 million members. In Austria, there are about 1.3 million.
We know how busy you are. You can't track all social media channels individually. Even if, as in our case, it would be worth it. Because we keep posting interesting news or reports that are worth spreading. That is why we have created the possibility on our website to share interesting content directly on LinkedIn or to refer directly to our LinkedIn page. We consider built-in social plug-ins as an extended service on our website. The data that LinkedIn collects also helps us to only show possible advertising measures to people who are interested in our offer.
LinkedIn does not store any personal data simply by integrating the social plug-ins. LinkedIn calls this data generated by plug-ins passive impressions. However, if you click on a social plug-in, for example to share our content, the platform saves personal data as so-called "active impressions". This is regardless of whether you have a LinkedIn account or not. If you are logged in, the data collected will be assigned to your account.
Your browser establishes a direct connection to the LinkedIn servers when you interact with our plug-ins. The company logs various usage data. In addition to your IP address, this can be, for example, registration data, device information or information about your Internet or mobile phone provider. If you call up LinkedIn services via your smartphone, your location can also be determined (after you have allowed this). LinkedIn may also share this data in "hashed" form with third-party advertisers. Hashing means turning a record into a string. This allows the data to be encrypted in such a way that people can no longer be identified.
Most data about your user behavior is stored in cookies. These are small text files that are usually placed in your browser. However, LinkedIn may also use web beacons, pixel tags, display tags and other device identifiers.
Various tests also show which cookies are set when a user interacts with a social plug-in. The data found cannot claim to be complete and is only used as an example.
In principle, LinkedIn retains your data for as long as the company deems it necessary to offer its services. However, LinkedIn will delete your data when you delete your account. In some exceptional cases, LinkedIn retains some data in aggregated and anonymous form even after you delete your account. Once you delete your account, other people will no longer be able to see your data within a day. LinkedIn generally deletes the data within 30 days. However, LinkedIn retains data if it is necessary for legal reasons. Data that can no longer be assigned to a person will remain stored even after the account has been closed. The data is stored on various servers in America and probably also in Europe.
How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?
You have the right to access and delete your data at any time. You can manage, change and delete your data in your LinkedIn account. You can also request a copy of your data from LinkedIn.
To access account information on your LinkedIn profile:
Click on your profile icon on LinkedIn and select the “Settings and data protection” section. Now click on "Privacy" and then in the section "How LinkedIn uses your data" on "Change". In just a short time you can download selected data about your web activity and your account history.
You also have the option in your browser to prevent data processing via LinkedIn. As mentioned above, LinkedIn stores most of the data via cookies that are set in your browser. You can manage, disable or delete these cookies. Depending on which browser you have, the administration works a little differently. The instructions for the most common browsers can be found here:
You can also basically set up your browser in such a way that you are always informed when a cookie is to be set. Then you can always decide individually whether you want to allow the cookie or not.
