Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google LLC. (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter “Google”), for the purposes of aligning the design of our website with user needs and continuously optimizing our pages. In this context, pseudonymous profiles are created and cookies are used (see Section 8). The information the cookie generates concerning your use of the website, such as

This information is used to analyse website usage, to compile reports on website activities, and to perform other services associated with website and internet usage for the purposes of market research and aligning the design of these web pages with user needs. This information may also be transferred to third parties where a legal obligation to do so exists or where third parties are commissioned to process these data. Under no circumstances is your IP amalgamated with other Google data. IP addresses are anonymized, ensuring that they cannot be allocated to users (IP masking).

10. Social media plugins

On the basis of Article 6, Paragraph 1, Sentence 1, Point f of the GDPR, we use the social media plugins of social network LinkedIn to raise the profile of our company on this site. The promotional purposes for doing so are to be considered as a legitimate interest within the scope of the GDPR. Each respective provider is responsible for ensuring their services comply with data protection regulations. Our integration of these plugins occurs via the two clicks method so as to protect visitors to our website in the best possible way.

a) LinkedIn

Social media plugins of LinkedIn Ireland (U.C., Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland) are embedded in our website to ensure it is used in a more personalised way. We use the “share” button for this purpose. The plugins are denoted by a LinkedIn logo, for example in the form of an “in” inside a box. This is a service offered by LinkedIn. If you visit a page on our website that contains one of these plugins, your browser establishes a direct connection with LinkedIn’s servers. The content of the plugin is directly transmitted from LinkedIn to your browser and embedded in the website.

Through the integration of plugins, LinkedIn is informed that your browser has accessed the relevant page of our website, even if you do not have a LinkedIn account or are not logged into LinkedIn. This information (including your IP address, proxy server, browser, add-ons, device ID and functions of your internet provider or mobile phone operator incl. location detection) is directly transmitted from your browser to LinkedIn servers both inside and outside the United States, where they are also stored.

If you are logged into LinkedIn, your accessing our website can be directly traced back to your LinkedIn account by LinkedIn. If you interact with the plugins, for example by using the “share” button, this information is also directly transmitted to a LinkedIn server where it is stored. The information will also be published on LinkedIn and displayed to your LinkedIn contacts.

LinkedIn can use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and the needs-based design of LinkedIn pages. To this end, LinkedIn creates profiles concerning usage, interests and relationships, for example to evaluate your use of our website with respect to the advertisements displayed to you on LinkedIn, to inform other LinkedIn users about your activities on our website and to provide additional services related to the use of LinkedIn.

If you do not want LinkedIn to assign the data collected via our website to your LinkedIn account, you must log out of LinkedIn before visiting our website. Please read LinkedIn’s Data Policy (https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy) to learn about the purpose and extent of data collection, the further processing and use of the data by LinkedIn, as well as your rights and settings options for protecting your privacy.
