II. General Information on Data Processing
1. The Scope of Processing Personal Data
As a matter of principle, we collect and use personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website, our contents and services.
The collection and use of personal data of our users is only carried out with the consent of the user. An exception is made in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.
2. Legal Basis for the Processing of Personal Data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.
In the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6 paragraph 1 letter b FADP serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations which are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.
If vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d FADP serves as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.
3. Deleting and Storing Data
The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU ordinances, laws or other regulations to which the person responsible is subject. Data will also be deleted when a storage period prescribed by the above-mentioned standards expires, unless there is a need to continue storing the data for the purpose of concluding or fulfilling a contract.

The data is also stored in the log files of our system, this data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.
2. Legal Basis for the Data Processing
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
3. Purpose of the Data Processing
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the user’s IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session. The storage in log files is there to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data allows us to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. Use of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.
This purpose also includes our legitimate interest in data processing in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
4. Duration of Storage
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this data is deleted when the respective session has ended. In the case of storage of the data in log files, the data is deleted after seven days at the latest. Storage beyond this period is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.
5. Objection and Removal of Data
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. There is therefore no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

V. Analytical Tools and Advertising
1. Google Analytics
Subject to your consent, this website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

- Browser type/version
- The operating system used
- Referral URL (Page used to access the website)

We have activated an IP anonymization function on this website. This means that your IP address will be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the USA.
Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.

VI. Plug Ins and Tools
1. Google Web Fonts
This site uses so-called web fonts, which are provided by Google, for the uniform display of fonts. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
When you visit a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.
We have set up the tool for you in such a way that the browser you use does not need to connect to Google’s servers. The required WebFonts are loaded directly from our server. Google therefore does not know that our website has been accessed via your IP address because of this tool.
Google Web Fonts are used in this form in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our online services. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font is used by your computer.
2. Adobe Typekit Fonts
Adobe Typekit is a service or software from Adobe Systems Incorporated, 601 Townsend St., San Francisco, CA 94103 USA. On the Adobe website, which is accessible from Germany, the subsidiary Adobe Systems Software Ireland Limited, 4-6 Riverwalk, Citywest Business Campus, Dublin 24, Republic of Ireland is also shown as responsible for Europe.
We use other external fonts from Adobe on our website. The integration of Adobe fonts is done via a font database from Adobe Typekit.
Adobe may collect and process information (including personal data) through the integration of the fonts. Adobe may also transfer the information to a server in a third country.
As evidenced by the Adobe Systems Incorporated Privacy Shield Certification (available at https://www.privacyshield.gov/list under the search term “Adobe Systems Incorporated”), Adobe is committed to complying with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from EU member states and Switzerland, respectively. Adobe has declared by certification that it complies with the Privacy Shield Principles.
We cannot influence what data Adobe actually collects and processes. However, Adobe states that it is able to process the following information in particular (including personal data):
- Provided fonts
- ID of the record
- Type of record (string “configurable” or “dynamic”)
- Account ID (identifies the customer the record is from)
- Service that provides the fonts (for example, Typekit or Edge Web Fonts)
- Application that requests the fonts (for example, Adobe Muse)
- Server that provides the fonts (for example, Typekit server or Enterprise CDN)
- Host name of the page on which the fonts are loaded
- The time it takes the web browser to download the fonts
- The time from downloading the fonts with the web browser to applying the fonts
- Whether an ad blocker is installed to determine if the ad blocker is interfering with the proper tracking of page views
You can find detailed information from the following links https://www.adobe.com/de/privacy/policies/typekit.html and https://www.adobe.com/de/privacy/policy.html.
If you are signed in to your Adobe account, Adobe can add the processed information to your account.
You can prevent this information from being added directly by logging out of your Adobe account. Furthermore, you can prevent the installation of cookies – insofar as they are set by Adobe – by changing the appropriate settings in your browser; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent.
By integrating Adobe Typekit we pursue the purpose of being able to display uniform fonts on your device.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data described here is Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f) DSGVO.
Our legitimate interest in this lies in the great benefit that a uniform representation of the typefaces offers. By the possibility of a uniform representation we keep the design effort lower than if we had to react to font standards of different operating systems or browsers with our own graphically adapted websites. Adobe also has a legitimate interest in the (personal) data collected in order to improve its own services.
3. Google Maps
Our website uses the map service Google Maps via an API. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Scope of Data Processing
To use the functions of Google Maps it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. As evidenced by Google’s Privacy Shield certification (which can be found at https://www.privacyshield.gov/list under the search term “Google”), Google is committed to complying with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework published by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework regarding the collection, use and storage of personal information from EU member states and Switzerland, respectively. Google, including Google LLC and its wholly owned subsidiaries in the U.S., has declared by certification that it complies with the Privacy Shield Principles. You can find more information about this at https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/frameworks/.
