Usage data

When you visit our websites, our web server temporarily evaluates so-called usage data for statistical purposes in order to improve the quality of our website. This data consists of the following data categories:

  • the name and address of the requested content,
  • the date and time of the query,
  • the amount of data transferred,
  • the access status (content transferred, content not found),
  • the description of the used web browser and operating system used,
  • the referral link, which indicates from which page you reached ours,

The legal basis for the processing of usage data is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The processing is based on the legitimate interest of providing the contents of the website and ensuring a device- and browser-optimised display.

In addition, we store the complete IP address transmitted by your web browser with strict purpose limitation for a period of seven days in the legitimate interest of being able to detect, limit and eliminate attacks on our websites. We delete or anonymize the IP address when this period has expired.The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

​In order to protect your data as comprehensively as possible from unwanted access, we implement technical and organisational measures. These measures include encryption procedures on our websites. Your data is transferred from your computer to our server and vice versa via the internet using TLS encryption. You can usually recognize this by the fact that the lock symbol in the status bar of your browser is closed and the address line begins with https://.

We use cookies on our websites, which are necessary for using our websites.

Cookies are small text files that can be stored on and extracted from your device. There is a difference between session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and permanent cookies, which are stored for more than the duration of the session.

We do not use these necessary cookies for analysis, tracking or advertising purposes.

In some cases, these cookies only contain information on certain settings and are not linked to a person. They may also be necessary to enable user guidance, security and operating of the site.

The legal basis for using these cookies is our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

You can set your browser to inform you about the use of cookies. You can also delete cookies or prevent the setting of new cookies at any time by using the appropriate browser settings. Please note that if you delete certain cookies, our websites may not be displayed correctly and some functions may no longer be available.

We use a consent management platform (consent or cookie banner) on our websites. The processing in connection with the use of the consent management platform and the logging of the settings you have made is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR, in our legitimate interest to display our content according to your preferences and to be able to prove the consent(s) you have given. The settings you have made, the consent you have given and parts of your usage data are stored in a cookie. This means that it is retained for subsequent page requests and your consent can still be tracked. You can find further information on this under the heading “Necessary cookies”.

Unless we have already informed you in detail about the storage period, we delete personal data when they are no longer required for the aforementioned processing purposes and no legitimate interests or other (legal) reasons for storage prevent deletion.

We use the web analysis tool “Google Analytics” for the user-oriented design of our websites. Google Analytics creates user profiles on the basis of pseudonyms. For this purpose, permanent cookies are stored on your end device and read by us. In this way, we are able to recognize returning visitors and count them as such. The data collected is stored for a maximum period of 2 months.

As part of the Google Analytics service, Google Ireland Limited supports us as a processor in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. Data processing may also be carried out by Google outside the EU or the EEA (in particular in the USA). With regard to Google, an adequate level of data protection is guaranteed on the basis of the adequacy decision (EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework). Google also undertakes to conclude standard contractual clauses with other sub-processors.

Data processing takes place on the basis of your consent, provided that you have given your consent via our banner. You can withdraw your consent at any time. To do so, please follow this link and make the appropriate settings via our banner.

We share your data with service providers that support us in the operation of our websites and the associated processes as part of data processing on behalf of the controller pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR. These are, for example, hosting service providers. Our service providers are strictly bounded by our instructions and are contractually obligated accordingly.

In the following, we will name the processors with whom we work, if we have not already done so in the above text of the data protection declaration. If data may be processed outside the EU or the EEA in this context, we inform you about this in the following table.

Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR)

Right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR)

In certain cases, which are listed in detail in Art. 20 GDPR, you have the right to receive your personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format or to request the transfer of this data to a third party.
