Furthermore, based on our business interests, we store information about suppliers, organizers and other business partners, e.g. for later contact. We generally store this mostly company-related data permanently.

Business analysis and market research

Google Tag Manager

Google Tag Manager is a solution with which we can manage so-called website tags via an interface (and thus integrate e.g. Google Analytics and other Google marketing services in our online offer). The Tag Manager itself (which implements the tags) does not process any personal data of the users. With regard to the processing of users’ personal data, reference is made to the following information about Google services. Usage guidelines: https://www.google.com/intl/de/tagmanager/use-policy.html.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the online offer by the user is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online offer by users, to compile reports on the activities within this online offer and to provide us with other services related to the use of this online offer and the internet. Pseudonymous user profiles can be created from the processed data.

We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization. This means that the IP address of the user is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is only transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there in exceptional cases.

The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser is not merged with other Google data. The users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; Users can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to their use of the online offer and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http: // tools .google.com / dlpage / gaoptout? hl = en.

If we ask the user for consent (e.g. in the context of a cookie consent), the legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a. DSGVO. Otherwise, the personal data of the users are processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. GDPR).

As far as data is processed in the USA, we would like to point out that Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thereby guarantees that it will comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active) ,

You can find further information on the use of data by Google, setting and objection options in Google’s data protection declaration (https://policies.google.com/privacy) and in the settings for the display of advertisements by Google (https: // adssettings. google.com/authenticated).

The personal data of the users will be deleted or anonymized after 14 months.

Google Universal Analytics

We use Google Analytics in the form of “universal analytics”. “Universal Analytics” refers to a process by Google Analytics in which the user analysis is based on a pseudonymous user ID and a pseudonymous profile of the user is created with information from the use of different devices (so-called “cross-device tracking”).

Target group formation with Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics to display the advertisements placed by Google and its partners’ advertising services only to those users who have shown an interest in our online offer or the specific features (e.g. interests in certain topics or products based on the visited Websites determined) which we transmit to Google (so-called “remarketing” or “Google Analytics audiences”). With the help of remarketing audiences, we also want to ensure that our advertisements correspond to the potential interest of users.

Jetpack (WordPress Stats)

We use the Jetpack plugin (here the sub-function “WordPress Stats”), which integrates a tool for statistical evaluation of visitor access and from Automattic Inc., 60 29th Street # 343, San Francisco, CA 94110, USA. Jetpack uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and that enable an analysis of your use of the website.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this online offer is stored on a server in the USA. User profiles of the users can be created from the processed data, whereby these are only used for analysis and not for advertising purposes. For more information, see Automattic’s privacy policy: https://automattic.com/privacy/ and information about Jetpack cookies: https://jetpack.com/support/cookies/.

If we ask the user for consent (e.g. in the context of a cookie consent), the legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a. DSGVO. Otherwise, the personal data of the users are processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. GDPR).

Online presence in social media

We maintain online presences within social networks and platforms in order to communicate with the customers, interested parties and users active there and to be able to inform them about our services.

We would like to point out that data of users outside the European Union can be processed. This can result in risks for the user, because e.g. enforcing users’ rights could be difficult. With regard to US providers who are certified under the Privacy Shield, we would like to point out that they are committed to complying with EU data protection standards.

In addition, user data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, usage profiles are created from the usage behavior and the resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles can in turn be used to e.g. Place advertisements inside and outside of the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the users’ computers in which the usage behavior and interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, data can be stored in the usage profiles regardless of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them).

The processing of users’ personal data is based on our legitimate interests in effective information for users and communication with users in accordance with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO. If the users of the respective providers of the platforms are asked for their consent to the data processing described above, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a., Art. 7 GDPR.

For a detailed description of the respective processing and the possibilities of objection (opt-out), we refer to the information linked below by the provider.

Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we would like to point out that these can be most effectively asserted by the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can take appropriate measures and provide information directly. If you still need help, you can contact us.

Integration of services and content from third parties

We use content or service offers from third-party providers within our online offer based on our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Article 6 (1) lit. Services such as Include videos or fonts (hereinafter referred to as “content”).

This always presupposes that the third-party providers of this content perceive the IP address of the user, since without the IP address they could not send the content to their browser. The IP address is therefore required to display this content. We strive to only use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. Third-party providers can also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. The “pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information can also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and contain, among other things, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, time of visit and other information about the use of our online offer, as well as being linked to such information from other sources.

Google Fonts

We integrate the fonts (“Google Fonts”) from the provider Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. According to Google, the user data is used solely for the purpose of displaying the fonts in the user’s browser. The integration takes place on the basis of our legitimate interests in a technically safe, maintenance-free and efficient use of fonts, their uniform representation and consideration of possible licensing restrictions for their integration. Data protection declaration: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

Google ReCaptcha

We bind the function to detect bots, e.g. for entries in online forms (“ReCaptcha”) by the provider GGoogle Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Data protection declaration: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/, opt-out: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated.

Google Maps

We integrate the maps of the “Google Maps” service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. The processed data can include, in particular, IP addresses and location data of the users, which, however, are not collected without their consent (usually carried out as part of the settings of their mobile devices). The data can be processed in the USA. Data protection declaration: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/, opt-out: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated.

Use of Facebook social plugins

On the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. GDPR), we use social plugins (“plugins”) from the social network facebook.com, which operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”).
For this, e.g. Contents such as images, videos or texts and buttons belong with which users can share content of this online offer within Facebook. The list and the appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).

When a user calls up a function of this online offer that contains such a plugin, his device establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted from Facebook directly to the user’s device, which integrates it into the online offer. User profiles of the users can be created from the processed data. We therefore have no influence on the scope of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs users according to our level of knowledge.

By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has called up the corresponding page of the online offer. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to their Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the Like button or leaving a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your device directly to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out and save his IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is saved in Germany.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the related rights and setting options for protecting the privacy of users can be found in Facebook’s data protection information: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him via this online offer and link it to his member data stored on Facebook, he must log out of Facebook before using our online offer and delete his cookies. Further settings and contradictions regarding the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads or via the US website http://www.aboutads.info / choices / or the EU website http://www.youronlinechoices.com/. The settings are platform independent, i.e. they are adopted for all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.
