Personal data is any data that can be related to your person, such as your name, address, e-mail address and telephone number.

The information on our websites can generally be used without providing personal data. This, however, does not include the data that is automatically transmitted by your browser to allow you to use these pages. This includes: 

  • Time of the server request
  • IP-address
  • The course of your visit
This data cannot be attributed to specific persons. We do not consolidate this data with other data sources. We do, however, reserve the right to subsequently check this data if we receive specific indications suggesting illegal use. The storage period of this information corresponds to the legal regulations.


Our websites sometimes use cookies that are saved on your computer. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain any viruses. They only collect data that is automatically transmitted by your browser. We collect this data in an anonymous form and only use it to make our offerings more user-friendly, effective and safer.

Most of the cookies we use are referred to as session cookies. They are automatically deleted after you leave our site. We also use permanent cookies to collect information about computers that repeatedly access our website. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser during your next visit. The permanent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period that may vary depending on the cookie. You can also delete these cookies in your browser yourself.  

You can configure your browser so that you are notified if cookies are set and only allow cookies in individual cases. You can refuse to accept cookies for specific cases or in general as well as activate the automatic deletion of the cookies when you close your browser.

You can also use the offerings of our websites without cookies. We cannot, however, ensure that you can use all the functions of this website.

Using our contact form, call back, partner section

In addition to the use of our websites for information purposes only, we also offer additional services that you may use. To do this, you have to regularly enter additional personal data that we use to provide the respective service. If additional voluntary entries are possible, they are marked accordingly.

If you send us requests or inquiries using our contact form, the callback form or the partner area, your information, including the contact details you provide, e.g. your name, your e-mail address and your telephone number, is saved.

We only save personal data that has been sent to use via our websites as long as necessary to serve the purposes for which it was provided.

Passing data onto third parties

We do not disclose your data without your consent. We may pass along your personal data to a third party if it is necessary to conclude contracts that are offered in collaboration with a third-party provider. In this case, we will provide you with separate notification indicating that we have shared your personal data with the third party.

Piwik use

This website uses the open source Piwik web analytics service. Piwik uses cookies to analyze the use of our website. To do this, the information generated by the cookies about how this website is used is saved on our server. The IP address is rendered anonymous before storage. The IP address acquired using Piwik is not consolidated with other data we have collected.

The saved information is not passed on to third parties. If you do not want your data to be saved or used by Piwik, you can deactivate the storage and use as follows:

In this case, an opt-out cookie is saved in your browser that prevents Piwik from saving your usage data. If you delete your cookies, this also deletes the Piwik opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie must be activated again when you visit our page again.

Using social media plug-ins

We use the following social media plug-ins on our websites:

  • LinkedIn
  • Xing

Here, we use a 2-click solution. This means that when you visit our website, no personal data is transmitted to the plug-in providers, which you can recognize by the marking on the respective field with the provider logo. Personal data is only automatically transmitted to the plug-in provider after you have clicked the provider's plug-in and saved there – in America, if it is a US provider. We have no influence on the collected data and the data processing. We also are not aware of the full extent of the data collection, the data usage by the plug-in provider or the storage periods. Since the plug-in provider collects the data, in particular via cookies, we recommend deleting all cookies before clicking a provider's logo.

If you activate a social media plug-in, the plug-in provider receives the information that you have called up the corresponding page of our website. In addition, the data specified under 2. of this Data Privacy Statement above is also transmitted to the provider. If you activate Xing, however, the data is only collected anonymously according to the information supplied by the provider in Germany. This is the case, regardless whether you have an account with this plug-in provider and are logged in there.

If you are logged into the plug-in provider, this data is directly associated with your account. If you click the activated button and e.g. link the page, the plug-in provider also saves this information to your user account and publicly shares it with your contacts. If you do not want the data to be assigned to your profile with the plug-in provider, you have to log out of the provider before activating the button.

The plug-in provider saves the collected data as usage profiles and uses them for advertising, market research or designing its website. The data is analyzed, in particular, – also for users who are not logged in – to display demand-driven advertisements and to notify other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right to object to the creation of these user profiles. If you would like to exercise this right, you have to contact the respective plug-in provider.

You can obtain additional information about the data collection and processing as well as the protection of your personal rights by the respective plug-in provider in the data privacy statements of these providers. We are providing you with the contact details of the respective provider as well as their data protection policies below:

LinkedIn Coporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA;

Data protection

We take comprehensive technical measures to ensure data protection, in particular, the protection of your personal data during the data transmission and to protect it against becoming known by third parties. We update these measures from time to time to reflect the state-of-the-art.  

As a precautionary measure, we would like to point out that we never request confidential data, such as account or customer numbers, pin numbers or passwords by e-mail, telephone or SMS texts or ask you to return or specify this data or directly enter access data.

Objection to advertising mails

We hereby object to the use of the contact data published within the scope of the obligation under German law to provide publication details for transmitting advertising and information materials that we have not expressly requested. We expressly reserve the right to take legal actions in case of the transmission of unsolicited advertising material, e.g. as spam mail.
