5. Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, which provides a guarantee to comply with European data protection law ( https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We have activated the IP anonymization feature on this website. Your IP address will be shortened by Google within the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services regarding website activity and Internet usage for the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google. You can prevent these cookies being stored by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. However, we wish to point out that doing so may mean you will not be able to enjoy the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the data generated by cookies about your use of the website (incl. your IP address) from being passed to Google, and the processing of these data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de). We point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code “gat._anonymizeIp ();” in order to ensure an anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP-Masking). You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent your data from being collected on future visits to this site: Disable Google Analytics. This procedure is particularly recommended when accessing our site via mobile devices.

We support the use of the aforementioned analysis tool on Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR: the processing is performed to analyze the user behavior and is therefore necessary to safeguard our legitimate interests.

6. Use of Google Marketing Services

We use the Google Inc. Marketing and Remarketing Services (“Google Marketing Services”), 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, (“Google”). Google Marketing Services allows us to better target advertisements for and on our website so that we only present ads to users that potentially match their interests. E.g.: It is called remarketing if users are also shown ads for products they are interested in on other websites. The information generated by the cookie or the tags about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. For these purposes, when Google and our other websites that are running Google Marketing Services are activated, Google runs a code and so-called (re-) marketing tags are added and incorporated into the website. The IP address of the users is also recorded, whereby in the context of Google Analytics the IP address is shortened within member states of the European Union or other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The data of the users are pseudonymised processed in the context of the Google marketing services. That means Google stores and processes e.g. not the name or e-mail address of the users, but processes the relevant data cookie-related within pseudonymous user profiles. From the perspective of Google, the ads are not managed and displayed to a specifically identifiable person, but to the cookie owner, regardless of who that cookie owner is. This does not apply if users have explicitly allowed Google to process their data without this pseudonymization. (The information collected about the users by Google Marketing Services is transmitted to Google and stored on Google’s servers in the United States. Among the Google marketing services we use is u.a. the online advertising program “Google AdWords”. In the case of Google AdWords, each advertiser receives a different “conversion cookie”. Cookies can not be tracked through AdWords advertisers’ websites. The information collected through the cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Advertisers will see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users.) Among the Google marketing services we use is amongst others the online advertising program “Google AdWords”. In the case of Google AdWords, each advertiser receives a different “conversion cookie”. Cookies cannot be tracked through AdWords advertisers’ websites. The information collected through the cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Advertisers will see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users. We embed third-party ads based on Google’s DoubleClick marketing service. DoubleClick uses cookies, which allow Google and its affiliate websites to serve ads based on users’ visits to this site or other sites on the Internet. Another Google marketing service we use is the Google Tag Manager, which allows additional Google analytics and marketing services to be integrated into our website (e.g. AdWords, DoubleClick, or Google Analytics). For more information about Google’s data usage for marketing, see their overview page: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads, Google’s Privacy Policy is available at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy. If you wish to opt-out of Google Marketing Services, you may take advantage of Google’s settings and opt-out options: http://www.google.com/ads/preferences. We base the use of the aforementioned marketing services on Article 6 (1) (a) DSGVO.

7. Use of Linkedin Ads and Analytics

We use the Linkedin Ads and Linkedin Analyttics marketing services provided by LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which a LinkedIn component (LinkedIn plug-in) was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to the download of a display of the corresponding LinkedIn component of LinkedIn. Further information about the LinkedIn plug-in may be accessed under https://developer.linkedin.com/plugins. During the course of this technical procedure, LinkedIn gains knowledge of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject. If the data subject is logged in at the same time on LinkedIn, LinkedIn 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 LinkedIn component and associated with the respective LinkedIn account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the LinkedIn buttons integrated on our website, then LinkedIn assigns this information to the personal LinkedIn user account of the data subject and stores the personal data. LinkedIn receives information via the LinkedIn component that the data subject has visited our website, provided that the data subject is logged in at LinkedIn at the time of the call-up to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on the LinkedIn button or not. If such a transmission of information to LinkedIn is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their LinkedIn account before a call-up to our website is made. LinkedIn provides under https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls the possibility to opt out of targeting such targeted ads. The applicable privacy policy for LinkedIn is available under https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy. The LinkedIn Cookie Policy is available under https://www.linkedin.com/legal/cookie-policy. We support the use of the above-mentioned analysis tool on Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR: the processing takes place according to the needs of our website and is therefore necessary to safeguard our legitimate interests.

8. Use of Gravatar

We use the Gravatar service of Automattic Inc., 60 29th Street # 343, San Francisco, CA 94110, USA, within our online offering and specifically on the blog. Gravatar is a service that allows users to log in and submit profile pictures and their email addresses. If users with the respective e-mail address on other online sites (especially in blogs) leave posts or comments, their profile pictures can be displayed next to the posts or comments. For this purpose, the e-mail address communicated by the user to Gravatar is transmitted in encrypted form in order to check whether a profile has been stored. This is the sole purpose of sending the e-mail address and it will not be used for any other purpose, but will be deleted afterwards. By displaying the images, Gravatar gets to know the IP address of the users, as this is necessary for communication between a browser and an online service. For more information about Gravatar’s collection and use of data, see the Automattic Privacy Notice: https://automattic.com/privacy/. If users do not want a user picture linked to their email address on Gravatar to appear in the comments, they should use a non-Gravatar email address to comment. We also point out that it is also possible to use an anonymous or even no e-mail address if the users do not want their own e-mail address to be sent to Gravatar. Users can completely prevent the transfer of data by not using our commenting system. We support the use of the above-mentioned analysis tool on Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR: the processing takes place according to the needs of our website and is therefore necessary to safeguard our legitimate interests.

9. Use of Facebook Connect

By using Facbook Connect from Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland we also offer the possibility of easier registration with Facebook for our services. You can use your existing Facebook user account for this purpose. By clicking the “Log in with Facebook” link, you can use this registration method via our online portal. To do this, you need to already have a Facebook account or have access to Facebook. If you would like to register for one of our services using your Facebook account, the first step in the registration process will immediately redirect you to Facebook. Facebook will then ask you to log in or to register. Under no circumstances will we receive your personal access data (user name and password). In a second step, you will connect your Facebook profile with the service for which you would like to register. At this point, you will be told what data from your Facebook profile will be transmitted to us. This information is usually your “public information” on Facebook and information which you have made available to the public or authorized for the application in question. Information of this type generally includes your name, profile picture and cover photo, your gender, your networks, your username (Facebook URL), and your user ID number (Facebook ID). We will also use the email address you have saved with Facebook in order to contact you outside of Facebook. You can see an overview of information in your profile that is available to the public via the General Account Settings menu of your Facebook profile (https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=applications). The legal basis for data collection and storage is your consent, within the meaning of Art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter a GDPR. If you would like to remove the connection between Facebook Connect and our service, please log in to Facebook and make the required changes to your profile. We will then no longer have the right to use information from your Facebook profile.

10. Use of Intercom

We use the service “Intercom” of the provider Intercom Inc., 98 Battery Street, Suite 402, San Francisco, CA 94111, USA, to send our messages by email and live chat and to evaluate the use of our website by users. We transmit a limited amount of your data (such as email address and date of registration) to Intercom and use Intercom for statistical analysis of your use of our website. Intercom analyses the use of our website and tracks our customer relationships with the aim of improving our services for you. We also use Intercom to send messages via email and live chat on our website. Further information on data protection at Intercom can be found at http://docs.intercom.io/privacy. The terms of use of Intercom can be found at http://docs.intercom.io/terms. You can object to data processing at any time in the live chat by saying “I disagree with the processing of my data”. We rely on the use of the above-mentioned analysis tool on Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR: the processing takes place according to the needs of our website and is therefore necessary to safeguard our legitimate interests.

11. Data Retention/Storage Time

The stored data will be deleted as soon as they revoke any consent or if the data is no longer necessary for their intended purpose and the deletion does not conflict with any legitimate interests or statutory retention requirements. If the data is not deleted because it is required for other or legitimate purposes, its processing will be restricted. The data will be blocked and are not processed for other purposes. This applies for data of users who must be kept for commercial or tax reasons. According to legal requirements, storage takes place for 6 years in accordance with § 257 (1) HGB (for example commercial letters, accounting documents, etc.) and for 10 years in accordance with § 147 (1) AO (for example commercial and business letters, tax-relevant documents).

If the applicant data contain “special types of personal data” according to Art. 9 GDPR (e.g. ethnic origin, severe disability), this consent also refers to this data.

A given consent can be revoked at any time. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent, which were given to us before the validity of the GDPR, i.e. before May 25, 2018.

If the data is no longer required for the fulfillment of contractual or legal obligations, these are regularly deleted, unless their temporary processing is necessary for the preservation of evidence within the framework of the statutory limitation provisions.
