Insofar as personally identifiable data (such as name, postal or email addresses) is collected, this occurs, to the greatest extent possible, purely on a voluntary basis.
Unless otherwise stated within this data privacy policy, all processing of personally identifiable data occurs within the European Union.

Contracted Data Processing, Recipients

We process your personally identifiable data with the assistance of contractors who support us in providing our services (e.g. Web hosts, email newsletter services).

Your personally identifiable data will only be transmitted to industry-typical service providers, such as banks (should we need to transfer funds to you, for example), tax consultants (if you appear in our books), shipping providers (if you ask us to send something to you by post), etc.

The user can determine how the web browser treats cookies as well as which cookies are allowed or blocked by changing the settings of their web browser. Precisely where those settings are located varies according to the web browser in question. Detailed information on the subject can be found under the “Help” menu of each browser. If you choose to restrict the function of cookies, under certain circumstances you will no longer be able to avail yourself of this website’s complete functionality.

Server Log Files

In order to monitor the technical functionality and improve the operational reliability of the Web server and subject to our overriding legitimate interest (technical security measures), our website processes the following personally identifiable data in a Server Log File:

  • accessed content
  • date and time of server request
  • browser type/browser version
  • operating system used
  • IP address

This data is only stored temporarily and subsequently deleted.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited, 4 Barrow St, D04 E5W5 Dublin, Ireland (“Google”) on the basis of your consent (analysis of website use). We have entered into a data processing contract with Google for them to do so. When you access our website, the software automatically establishes a connection to the servers of Google and data is transmitted to those Google servers, some of which are located in the USA. Google Analytics also uses cookies in order to store information about website users and to analyze use of the website. Our website uses the function "IP anonymization". By doing so, if you are located within a member state of the European Union or in a signatory state of the European Economic Area, your IP address will first be truncated and thus anonymized by Google. Only in exceptional cases will your full IP address first be transmitted to a Google server in the USA, where it is then truncated. According to Google, Google will use the data collected in order to analyze website use, compile reports about website activities and provide us with additional services related to website use and Internet use in general. Furthermore, Google may under certain circumstances transmit this information to third parties, insofar as this is legally permissible or if the third party is contracted to process data on behalf of Google. Detailed information about how user data is handled by Google Analytics may be found in the privacy policies of Google and Google Analytics.
Any transmission of data to the USA is subject to the adequacy clause as laid out by the European Commission in Art. 45 par. 1 of the GDPR. Within the scope of this, companies who have earned “Privacy Shield” certification are deemed to guarantee an adequate level of data privacy. Google is certified under the “Privacy Shield”.

YouTube

This website utilizes YouTube in order to display videos. YouTube is a service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. If you use YouTube, information about your use of this website may be transmitted to Google. If you open a webpage that is part of our Internet presence and which contains a YouTube video, your browser will establish a direct connection with the servers of Google. The video will then be transmitted directly from Google to your browser and integrated into the webpage. As a consequence, we have no influence on the scope of data collected by Google in this way. Our current state of knowledge indicates that Google collects at least the following data:

  • Date and time of day of your visit to the webpage in question,
  • Internet address or URL of the webpage you have accessed,
  • IP address,
  • Selected video and any quality-settings you have applied.

We have no influence on how data is further processed or used by Google and can therefore accept no responsibility for the aforementioned.
If you do not want Google to collect, process or use information about you by means of our Internet presence, you may choose to deactivate JavaScript in your browser settings. In that case, you may potentially be unable to play videos.
The purpose and extent of data collection, as well as how that data is processed and used by Google, and your associated rights and settings options in order to protect your personal privacy, can be found in Google’s own data privacy policy (https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en).
Google LLC is an active participant in the Privacy Shield agreement (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active), thereby guaranteeing that it will, in compliance with the adequacy clause of the EU commission as stipulated in Art. 45 GDPR, comply with European data privacy laws and maintain an appropriate level of data privacy.
