Cookies


When you visit our Services, we may collect information about your usage so we can provide the Services to you. Such information may be collected via cookies or local storage technologies ("Cookies").

Cookies are text files, stored on a computer via an Internet browser. Servers may also use cookies, and probably most Internet sites do. A lot of cookies contain a cookie ID, which is a unique identifier, typically a string of characters, that uniquely identifies the cookie. The idea of a cookie is that Internet pages and servers can differentiate individual browsers of Data Subjects. Therefore, a cookie can identify a specific Internet browser via a cookie ID.

Cookies allow us to provide better Services to you, such as optimizing the information and offers on our Services for your own benefit. While cookies can be very helpful, we strive to minimize the use of cookies as much as possible.

It is possible to prevent the setting of cookies by configuring the Internet browser which is used to access our Services. This will then permanently reject any cookies. Via the Internet browser's settings, or via other software, it is also possible to delete any cookies that have been set in the past. However, deactivating the use of cookies may result in a less pleasing user experience.

Information We May Collect

To combat cybercrimes and document potential attacks against our Services, our Services may collect a series of general data and information when a Data Subject or system requests our Services. Such general data and information are stored in server log files. Specifically, our Services may collect Internet browser types and versions, the kind of operating system, the referring website from which an accessing system is contacting our Services, the sub-websites, the date and time of access to the Service, an IP address, the Internet service provider of the system accessing our Services, and any other similar data and/or information that may be used in the event of attacks on our Services.

We do not use the above mentioned general data and information to draw conclusions about the Data Subject. Instead, this data, aside from helping to combat cybercrimes and document potential attacks against our Services, is necessary to deliver our Services correctly, optimize the content and functions of our Services, as well as any potential advertisement, ensure the viability of our Services over the long-term, and provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal investigation and prosecution in case of a cyber-attack against our Services. To enhance data protection and data security, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process, we analyze anonymously collected data and information statistically. The server log files are stored separately from all Personal Data. Also, we aim to keep the collection of data at the bare minimum necessary to deliver our Services, which means that in some instances no data may be collected at all. To further limit the collection of data, we also strive to make our Services work offline as much as possible.

Our Services may ask you for permission to collect health-related information, which is never transmitted anywhere and kept private and offline on your device. In fact, most health-related information our Services may request is used only temporarily to provide the Service to you, such as temporarily overlaying your heart rate history on a graph. After closing the graph, the data is discarded.

Routine Erasure and Blocking of Personal Data

The Controller shall process and store the Data Subject's Personal Data only for the period absolutely necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, and only as far as granted by the European GDPR legislator or any other legislators in laws or regulations applicable to the Controller.

If the storage purpose is not or no longer applicable, and/or if a storage period expires, the Personal Data is routinely blocked or erased in accordance with any applicable legal requirements.

If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant by the Controller, the application documents shall be automatically erased two months after notification of the refusal decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the Controller are opposed to the erasure. Other legitimate interest in this relation is, e.g. a burden of proof in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

Data Protection Provisions about the Application and Use of Facebook

On its Services, the Controller may have integrated components of the enterprise Facebook. Facebook is a social network.

A social network is a place for social meetings on the Internet, an online community, which usually allows users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network may serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences, or enable the Internet community to provide personal or business-related information. Facebook allows social network users to include the creation of private profiles, upload photos, and network through friend requests.

The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, United States. If a person lives outside of the United States or Canada, the Controller is the Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet website, which is operated by the Controller and into which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-ins) was integrated, the web browser on the information technology system of the Data Subject is automatically prompted to download display of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook through the Facebook component. An overview of all the Facebook Plug-ins may be accessed under https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. During the course of this technical procedure, Facebook is made aware of what specific sub-site of our website was visited by the Data Subject.

If the Data Subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook, Facebook detects with every call-up to our website by the Data Subject—and for the entire duration of their stay on our Internet site—which specific sub-site of our Internet page was visited by the Data Subject. This information is collected through the Facebook component and associated with the respective Facebook account of the Data Subject. If the Data Subject clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated into our website, e.g. the "Like" button, or if the Data Subject submits a comment, then Facebook matches this information with the personal Facebook user account of the Data Subject and stores the Personal Data.

Facebook always receives, through the Facebook component, information about a visit to our website by the Data Subject, whenever the Data Subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook during the time of the call-up to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the Data Subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If such a transmission of information to Facebook is not desirable for the Data Subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their Facebook account before a call-up to our website is made.

The data protection guideline published by Facebook, which is available at https://facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, Processing and use of Personal Data by Facebook. In addition, it is explained there what setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the Data Subject. In addition, different configuration options are made available to allow the elimination of data transmission to Facebook. These applications may be used by the Data Subject to eliminate a data transmission to Facebook.

Data Protection Provisions about Google Web Fonts

For excellent representation of fonts, our Services may use web fonts kindly provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043. When you open a web page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache, so it can display texts correctly. When your browser requests one of our Services, such as a Website, that utilizes Google Web Fonts, your browser makes a direct connection with Google's servers. This means that Google becomes aware that our Website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is in line with the kind of Services we provide, which is superior high quality, visually pleasing Applications. Also, allowing Google to host the heavyweight web fonts for us means that we save money on internet bandwith, which allows us to be a low cost provider of Services to you. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.

Data Protection Provisions About the Application and Use of Google AdSense

On its Services, the Controller may have integrated Google AdSense. Google AdSense is an online service which allows the placement of advertising on third-party sites. Google AdSense is based on an algorithm that selects advertisements displayed on third-party sites to match with the content of the respective third-party site. Google AdSense allows an interest-based targeting of the Internet user, which is implemented by means of generating individual user profiles.

The operating company of Google's AdSense component is Alphabet Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.

The purpose of Google's AdSense component is the integration of advertisements on our website. Google AdSense places a cookie on the information technology system of the Data Subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Alphabet Inc. is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the Controller and into which a Google AdSense component is integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the Data Subject will automatically submit data through the Google AdSense component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Alphabet Inc. During the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise Alphabet Inc. gains knowledge of Personal Data, such as the IP address of the Data Subject, which serves Alphabet Inc., inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently create commission settlements.

The Data Subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Alphabet Inc. from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the Data Subject. Additionally, cookies already in use by Alphabet Inc. may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, Google AdSense also uses so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in web pages to enable a log file recording and a log file analysis through which a statistical analysis may be performed. Based on the embedded tracking pixels, Alphabet Inc. is able to determine if and when a website was opened by a Data Subject, and which links were clicked on by the Data Subject. Tracking pixels serve, inter alia, to analyze the flow of visitors on a website.

Through Google AdSense, Personal Data and information—which also includes the IP address, and is necessary for the collection and accounting of the displayed advertisements—is transmitted to Alphabet Inc. in the United States of America. These Personal Data will be stored and processed in the United States of America. The Alphabet Inc. may disclose the collected Personal Data through this technical procedure to third parties.

Google AdSense is further explained under the following link https://www.google.com/intl/en/adsense/start/.

Data Protection Provisions About the Application and use of Google Analytics (with Anonymization Function)

On its Services, the Controller may have integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the anonymizer function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimization of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.

For the web analytics through Google Analytics the Controller uses the application "_gat. _anonymizeIp". By means of this application the IP address of the Internet connection of the Data Subject is abridged by Google and anonymised when accessing our websites from a Member State of the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services concerning the use of our Internet site for us.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the Data Subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the Controller and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the Data Subject will automatically submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the Data Subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently create commission settlements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website by the Data Subject. With each visit to our Internet site, such Personal Data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the Data Subject, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These Personal Data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these Personal Data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.

The Data Subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the Data Subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.

In addition, the Data Subject has the possibility of objecting to a collection of data that are generated by Google Analytics, which is related to the use of this website, as well as the Processing of this data by Google and the chance to preclude any such. For this purpose, the Data Subject must download a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and install it. This browser add-on tells Google Analytics through a JavaScript, that any data and information about the visits of Internet pages may not be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-ons is considered an objection by Google. If the information technology system of the Data Subject is later deleted, formatted, or newly installed, then the Data Subject must reinstall the browser add-ons to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on was uninstalled by the Data Subject or any other person who is attributable to their sphere of competence, or is disabled, it is possible to execute the reinstallation or reactivation of the browser add-ons.

Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and under http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Google Analytics is further explained under the following Link https://www.google.com/analytics/.

Data Protection Provisions About the Application and use of Twitter

In its Services, the Controller may have integrated components of Twitter. Twitter is a multilingual, publicly-accessible microblogging service on which users may publish and spread so-called ‘tweets,’ e.g. short messages, which are limited to 280 characters. These short messages are available for everyone, including those who are not logged on to Twitter. The tweets are also displayed to so-called followers of the respective user. Followers are other Twitter users who follow a user's tweets. Furthermore, Twitter allows you to address a wide audience via hashtags, links or retweets.

The operating company of Twitter is Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, United States.

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site or Service, which is operated by the Controller and on which a Twitter component (Twitter button) was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the Data Subject is automatically prompted to download a display of the corresponding Twitter component of Twitter. Further information about the Twitter buttons is available under https://about.twitter.com/de/resources/buttons. During the course of this technical procedure, Twitter gains knowledge of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the Data Subject. The purpose of the integration of the Twitter component is a retransmission of the contents of this website to allow our users to introduce this web page to the digital world and increase our visitor numbers.

If the Data Subject is logged in at the same time on Twitter, Twitter detects with every call-up to our website by the Data Subject and for the entire duration of their stay on our Internet site which specific sub-page of our Internet page was visited by the Data Subject. This information is collected through the Twitter component and associated with the respective Twitter account of the Data Subject. If the Data Subject clicks on one of the Twitter buttons integrated on our website, then Twitter assigns this information to the personal Twitter user account of the Data Subject and stores the Personal Data.

Twitter receives information via the Twitter component that the Data Subject has visited our website, provided that the Data Subject is logged in on Twitter at the time of the call-up to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on the Twitter component or not. If such a transmission of information to Twitter is not desirable for the Data Subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their Twitter account before a call-up to our website is made.

The applicable data protection provisions of Twitter may be accessed under https://twitter.com/privacy?lang=en.

Legal basis for the Processing

Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for Processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific Processing purpose. If the Processing of Personal Data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the Data Subject is party, as is the case, for example, when Processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the Processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such Processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which Processing of Personal Data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the Processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the Processing of Personal Data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the Data Subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the Processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, Processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for Processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if Processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the Data Subject which require protection of Personal Data. Such Processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the Data Subject is a client of the Controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

The Legitimate Interests Pursued by the Controller or by a Third Party

Where the Processing of Personal Data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.

Period For Which the Personal Data Will Be Stored

The criteria used to determine the period of storage of Personal Data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.

Provision of Personal Data as Statutory or Contractual Requirement; Requirement Necessary to Enter Into a Contract; Obligation of the Data Subject to Provide the Personal Data; Possible Consequences of Failure to Provide Such Data

We clarify that the provision of Personal Data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the Data Subject provides us with Personal Data, which must subsequently be processed by us. The Data Subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with Personal Data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the Personal Data would have the consequence that the contract with the Data Subject could not be concluded. Before Personal Data is provided by the Data Subject, the Data Subject must contact any employee. The employee clarifies to the Data Subject whether the provision of the Personal Data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the Personal Data and the consequences of non-provision of the Personal Data.

Non-Existence of Automated Decision-Making

We do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
