We use "Google Dynamic Remarketing" on our website. This is a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as "Google").
Google Dynamic Remarketing enables us to display our advertisements to you as you continue to use the Internet after visiting our website. This is done by means of cookies stored in your browser. They are used by Google to record and evaluate your usage behavior when visiting various websites. In this way, Google can determine your previous visit to our website. According to its own statements, Google does not merge data collected in the course of remarketing with any of your personal data that may be stored by Google. In particular, Google claims to apply pseudonymization for remarketing.
We use Google Dynamic Remarketing for marketing and optimization purposes, specifically to place ads that are relevant and interesting to you and to improve campaign performance reporting.
The legal basis for the use of Google DoubleClick is your consent pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR, provided that you have provided your consent the first time you accessed our website.

Google Website statistics: https://services.google.com/sitestats/en.html
Your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server on the basis of the marketing tools employed. We have no influence on the extent and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and may thus only inform you on the basis of our knowledge: Through the integration of Campaign Manager, Google is notified that you have accessed the relevant part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are logged-in to a Google service, Google can associate the visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google, or have not logged in, it is possible for the provider to obtain and store your IP address.
In addition, Campaign Manager (DoubleClick Floodlight) cookies we use enable us to understand whether you are performing any actions on our website after you have viewed or clicked (conversion tracking) on one of our display/video ads on Google or another platform via Campaign Manager. Campaign Manager uses this cookie to understand the content you have interacted with on our website in order to send you targeted advertisements at a later point in time.
You can prevent participation in this tracking process in various ways:
In addition, you can prevent Google from collecting the information generated by the cookies about your use of the website, and the processing of this information by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/142293?hl=de under “Display settings”, “Campaign Manager deactivation extension”.
Data is transmitted to the USA on the basis of your consent under Art. 6(1)(a) in conjunction with Art. 49(1)(a) GDPR.
As there is no EU Commission adequacy decision for the transfer of personal data to the USA, we have concluded standard data protection clauses with Google within the meaning of Art. 46(2)(c) GDPR.
Alternatively, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) website at https://www.networkadvertising.org.
We use Google's CDN (content delivery network) to load this library in order to increase the loading speed of our website and thus provide you with a better user experience. Chances are very high that you have already used jQuery on another Google CDN website. If this is the case, your browser can access the cached copy and it does not have to be downloaded again.
If your browser does not have a cached copy or is downloading the file from Google CDN for any other reason, data will again be transferred from your browser to Google Inc. ("Google").
The legal basis for the use of Ajax-GoogleApis jQuery is your consent pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR, provided that you have provided your consent the first time you accessed our website.
You can prevent Google-Apis from collecting and processing your data by disabling script code execution in your browser or by installing a script blocker in your browser (which can be found at www.noscript.net or www.ghostery.com).
This website uses the web analytics service Google Analytics 4, operated by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, or if you have your registered office or place of residence in the EU, Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google").
The information generated by the cookie about how you use the website will be transmitted to and processed by Google on servers in the United States and other countries. This may include transmission to Google LLC, which is based in the USA.
Google Analytics 4 uses the special function "demographic characteristics". Google Analytics 4 can use this function to create statistics that make statements about the language, interests, location, age and gender of website users in order to identify target groups for marketing activities. This is done by analysing advertising and information from third-party providers. The collected data cannot be assigned to a specific person and is deleted after being stored for a period of two months.
As an extension to Google Analytics 4, we use Google Signals on our website to generate cross-device reports. If you have activated personalised ads and your devices are linked to your Google account, Google will, subject to your consent to use Google Analytics, analyse your usage behaviour across devices and create database models, including on cross-device conversions.
We do not receive any personal data from Google, only statistics. If you would like to prevent cross-device analysis, you can deactivate the "Personalised advertising" function in the settings of your Google account.
You can find instructions on this page: https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=de
For more information on Google Signals, please see the following link: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7532985?hl=de
As an extension to Google Analytics 4, the "UserIDs" function is used on our website. If you have consented to the use of Google Analytics 4, set up an account on this website and log in with this account on different devices, your activities, including conversions, can be analysed across devices.
Google processes your personal data on our behalf. We have therefore concluded an order processing agreement with Google in accordance with Art. 28 (3) DSGVO, in which Google undertakes to protect your personal data and not to pass it on to third parties for purposes other than those mentioned above.
The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is your consent pursuant to Section 25 (1) TTDSG as well as Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO, insofar as you give us your consent to this when you first access the page.
For data transfers to the USA, the provider has joined the EU-US Data Privacy Framework, which ensures compliance with the European level of data protection on the basis of an adequacy decision of the European Commission.
You can revoke your consent to data processing and transfer at any time without giving reasons by deleting the cookies in your browser or by clicking on the Cookiebot button at the bottom left.
The legality of data processing that has already taken place is not affected by the revocation of consent.
In order to protect input forms on our website, we use the "reCAPTCHA" service of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter "Google". By using this service, it is possible to distinguish whether a form entry is of human origin or misused by automated machine processing.
The legal basis for the use of reCAPTCHA is your consent pursuant to art. 6 para. 1. p. 1 lit. a GDPR, insofar as you have agreed when you first accessed the site.
To achieve the functionality, your referrer URL, IP address, website visitor behavior, information about operating system, browser and duration of visit, cookies, display instructions, scripts, information about the user's input behavior and mouse movements in the reCAPTCHA checkbox are transmitted to Google.
Google uses the information obtained in this way, among other things, to digitize and optimize its own various services.
The IP address transmitted as part of reCAPTCHA is not merged with other data from Google, unless you are logged into your Google account at the time of using the reCAPTCHA plug-in, i.e., at the time of visiting our website. If you wish to prevent this transmission and storage of data about you and your activity on our website by Google, you must log out of Google before accessing our site.
Google also processes data from you in the USA, among other places. We point out that according to the European Court of Justice, there is currently no adequate level of protection for the transfer of data to the USA. This may be associated with various risks to the legality and security of data processing. As a basis for data processing with recipients located in third countries (outside the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, i.e., in particular in the USA) or a data transfer there, Google uses so-called standard contractual clauses pursuant to art. 46. para. 2 and 3 GDPR.
Standard contractual terms are model templates provided by the EU Commission and are intended to ensure that your data complies with European data protection standards even if it is transferred to and stored in third countries (such as the USA).
By agreeing to these terms, Google undertakes to comply with the European level of data protection when processing your relevant data, even if the data is stored, processed, and managed in the US. These clauses are based on an implementing decision of the EU Commission. Among other sources, you can find the decision and the corresponding standard contractual clauses here: https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/?uri=CELEX:32021D0914
The Google Ads Data Processing Terms, which reference the standard contractual clauses, can be found at:
Our website uses GA Audience, a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter: GA Audience).
Google Audience thereby obtains access to the cookies generated within the use of Google AdWords and Google Analytics. In the process of the use, data, such as in particular the IP address and activities of the users, may be transmitted to a server of the company Google Inc. and stored there.
The legal basis for the application of GA Audience is your agreement in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR (EU General Data Protection Regulation), insofar you have given consent when you first accessed the site.
Since there is no EU Commission adequacy decision for the transfer of personal data to the USA, we have concluded with Google standard data protection terms within the meaning of Art. 46 (2) lit. c GDPR.
Google Inc. may transfer this information to third parties, insofar as this is required by law or insofar as processing of this data by third parties takes place.
You can also prevent the collection and forwarding of personal data (especially your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by deactivating the execution of Java Script in your browser or installing a tool such as 'NoScript'. Further, you can avoid the collection of data generated by the Google cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en)
The data is deleted as soon as the purpose of its collection has been fulfilled.
We use the marketing automation system Microsoft Dynamics 365 Cloud for Marketing of the provider Microsoft Corporation (Microsoft Deutschland GmbH, Walter-Gropius-Straße 5, 80807 Munich, Germany) - hereinafter referred to as "Microsoft" - to carry out marketing campaigns, for analysis purposes and to address customers and potential customers in a target group-specific manner. The data processing takes place within the European Union.
We use the system particularly for sending e-mail communications (e.g., in connection with the provision of downloads), for event management (e.g., management of event participants) and for the provision of landing pages and contact forms.
The use of the provider Microsoft and the system, the performance of statistical surveys and analyses, as well as the logging of the registration process for communication by e-mail, are carried out on the basis of your consent to e-mail communication via Microsoft Dynamics 365 Cloud for marketing pursuant to art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR.
Our interest is focused on providing a user-friendly and secure system that serves our business interests and meets the expectations of our users.
The components (e.g., forms) of the system integrated in our online service use "cookies", which are stored on the user's computer, and which enable an analysis of the use of the website by us.
In particular, the following information is collected:
• Client id
• The geographical location
• Type of browser
• Duration of the visit and pages viewed
Pseudonymized e-mail tracking:
The statistical surveys also include the identification of whether the newsletters were opened, when they were opened, and which links were clicked. Although this information can technically be assigned to individual newsletter recipients, an analysis of personal data is disabled and information about newsletter recipients is only evaluated pseudonymously and cannot be decoded and assigned to individual persons.
Double opt-in and logging:
The subscription to our newsletter uses a so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after registration, the user receives an e-mail in which he or she is asked to confirm the registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can register with other email addresses. The registrations for the newsletter are logged to be able to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time, as well as the IP address. Likewise, the changes to the user data stored with the shipping service provider are logged.
The user can cancel the subscription to our newsletter at any time, i.e., revoke his or her consent. The user will find a link to unsubscribe from the newsletter at the end of each newsletter. If the users have cancelled the newsletter subscription, the personal data of the users processed for its sending will be deleted.
We use the CRM system "Microsoft Dynamics 365 Cloud" of the provider Microsoft Corporation (One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA) - hereinafter referred to as "Microsoft" - as a cloud service; data processing takes place within the European Union.
Microsoft uses the data of the users exclusively for the technical processing of the inquiries and does not pass them on to third parties.
We use the system especially for the management of customers and interested parties (leads) in order to be able to process user inquiries more quickly and efficiently. The use of this system is based on our legitimate interest pursuant to article 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f. GDPR.
We use the Leadlab service provided by wiredminds GmbH, and their counting pixel technology, on our website to analyze user behavior and to optimize our site based on what we learn. In particular, the service allows us to identify which companies have visited our site. As part of this service, we do not receive any information that directly identifies you.
Cookies and tracking pixels are used in connection with the use of Leadlab to enable the statistical analysis how you use this website during your visits. Information - including personal information - about your visitor behavior is stored in this cookie and transmitted to wiredminds or collected directly by wiredminds. Information is processed by wiredminds using a pseudonym in a usage profile for purpose of analysis and is anonymized as far as possible.
The data obtained in this way will not be used to personally identify you without a separately given consent and will not be combined with personal data about you as the bearer of the pseudonym.
If IP addresses are collected, they will be made anonymous immediately after collection by deleting the last number block.
Information about data protection at wiredminds can be found on their website at https://wiredminds.de/en/privacy/.
Data processing is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interest in optimizing our online offerings, and our website, in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. wiredminds processes data on our behalf, and we have concluded a contract data processing agreement with wiredminds. This ensures that the data processing on our behalf is carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and guarantees the protection of the rights of the data subjects.

Pursuant to Art. 20 GDPR, you have the right to receive your personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format or to request its transfer to another controller;
Withdrawing your consent:
Pursuant to Art. 7(3) GDPR, you have the right to withdraw any consent you have provided to us at any time. As a result, we are no longer allowed to continue processing data based on this consent in the future.
If you wish to withdraw your consent, please use the contact details set out above or send an email to: email@example.com.
You have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) GDPR for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The controller will no longer process this personal data unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for such processing that override your interests, rights, and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims.
Where personal data concerning you is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing, which includes profiling, to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.
If you object to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes.
In the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you may exercise your right to object by automated means using technical specifications.
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply in cases where the decision is necessary for entering into, or performing, a contract between you and the controller; is authorized by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject, and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests; or is based on your express consent.
However, such decisions cannot be based on special categories of personal data referred to in Art. 9(1) GDPR, unless Art. 9(2)(a) or (g) GDPR applies and suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests are in place.
Pursuant to Art. 77 GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. As a rule, you can contact the supervisory authority at your usual place of residence or workplace or our headquarters.
