Collection of personal data for informational use | Cookies

Cookies are files with small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and stored on your computer's hard drive.

Like many sites, we use "cookies" to collect information. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.

In cookies information is stored, each resulting in connection with the specific terminal used. However, this does not mean that we are immediately aware of your identity.

On the one hand, the use of cookies serves to make the use of our offer more pleasant for you. For example, we use so-called session cookies to recognize that you have already visited individual pages on our website. These are automatically deleted after leaving our page.

In addition, to improve usability, we also use temporary cookies that are stored on your device for a specified period of time. If you visit our site again to take advantage of our services, it will automatically recognize that you have already been with us and what inputs and settings you have made, so you do not have to re-enter them.

On the other hand, we use cookies to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our offer. These cookies allow us to automatically recognize, when you visit our site again, that you have already been with us. These cookies are automatically deleted after a defined time.

We use this data only for our own purposes and to determine the profitability of our advertising campaigns. A further tracking does not take place. The evaluation carried out by us takes place anonymously based on our advertising campaigns.

The data processed by cookies are for the purposes mentioned in order to safeguard our legitimate interests as well as third parties according to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR required.

Analysis / tracking tools

The tracking measures listed below and used by us are based on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. With the tracking measures used, we want to ensure a needs-based design and the continuous optimization of our website. We additionally use the tracking measures to statistically record the use of our website and evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our offer for you. These interests are to be regarded as justified within the meaning of the aforementioned provision.

We implemented a pop-up to inform you, that our website uses tracking. If you agreed with tracking, you can still use the opt-out features described below.

The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corresponding tracking tools.

Google Analytics

Insofar as you have given your consent, this website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Use includes the Universal Analytics operating mode. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID, thus analyzing the activities of a user across devices. This privacy policy is provided by https://www.intersoft-consulting.de.

Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google beforehand within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there.

We point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by an IP anonymization to ensure an anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. For more information about Terms of Use and Privacy, see Google Terms & Conditions and  Privacy & Terms of Use.

Purposes of processing

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.

Legal basis

The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR.

Recipients / categories of recipients

The recipient of the data collected is Google.

Transmission to third countries

The personal data will be transmitted under the EU-US Privacy Shield on the basis of the adequacy decision of the European Commission in the USA. You can get the certificate here.

Duration of data storage

The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user IDs (eg user ID) or advertising IDs will be automatically deleted after 14 months. The deletion of data whose retention period has been reached is done automatically once a month.

Rights of the Affected

You can revoke your consent at any time with future effect by preventing the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to the fullest extent possible.

In addition, you may prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser add-on.

You can disable Google Analytics for display advertising and customize the ads on the Google Display Network by visiting the ad settings: www.google.com/settings/ads

Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Tag Manager. This service allows website tags to be managed through a single interface. Google Tool Manager only implements tags. This means: no cookies are used and no personal data is collected. Google Tool Manager triggers other tags, which may collect data. However, Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If deactivated at the domain or cookie level, it will remain in effect for all tracking tags as far as they are implemented with the Google Tag Manager.

Google re-targeting

This website uses Google Inc. retargeting technology ("Google"). This makes it possible to target visitors to our Internet pages specifically with personalized, interest-based advertising. The insertion of the advertising material is based on a cookie-based analysis of the previous user behavior. No personal data is stored. In the case of retargeting technology, a cookie is stored on your computer or mobile device in order to collect anonymous data about your interests and thus to adapt the advertising individually to the stored information. This will give you advertisement that most likely matches your product and information interests. You may object to the setting of advertising cookies permanently by downloading the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/html/intl/de/plugin/.
