For marketing purposes, our websites use so-called conversion and retargeting tags (“Facebook pixels”) of the social network Facebook, a service of Facebook Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA (“Facebook”). We use Facebook pixels to analyse the overall usage of our websites and to track the effectiveness of Facebook advertising (“conversion”). In addition, we use Facebook pixels to play out individualized advertising messages to you based on your interest in our products (“retargeting”). Facebook therefore processes data that the service collects via cookies, web beacons and comparable storage technologies on our websites.

The data collected in this context can be transferred from Facebook to a server in the USA for evaluation and stored there. In the event that personal data is transferred to the USA, Facebook has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield.

2.13 Social Media Facebook fan page

 

We are jointly responsible for operating a fan page on the social network Facebook Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California, 94025, USA (“Facebook”), which enables us to communicate with interested parties and followers and to inform them about our products and services.

Facebook may provide us with statistics on the use of our fan page (e.g. information about numbers, name, interactions, such as likes or comments, and aggregate demographic and other information or statistics about our company and the offer on our fan page to help us learn about interactions with our site) by Facebook/fan page users. For more information on the nature and scope of these statistics, please see the Facebook page insights and the respective responsibilities in the Facebook page insights addendum. The legal basis for this data processing is our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (b) GDPR and 6 (1) sentence 1 (b) GDPR, as described above.

We have no influence on data that is processed by Facebook on our own responsibility in accordance with the terms of use of Facebook. However, we would like to point out that when you visit the fan page, data about your usage behaviour is transferred from Facebook and from the fan page to Facebook. Facebook itself processes the above information to compile more detailed statistics and for its own market research and advertising purposes over which we have no control. For more information, please see Facebook’s Privacy Policy. In the event that personal information is transferred to the United States, Facebook has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield.

If personal data of users are available to us when operating the fan page, users are entitled to the rights stated in this Privacy Policy. Should users also wish to enforce their rights vis-à-vis Facebook, the simplest option is for users to contact Facebook directly. Facebook is aware both of the details regarding the technical operation of the platform and the associated data processing, as well as the specific purpose for this data processing, and can implement appropriate measures upon request should users assert their rights. We are happy to assist users in asserting their rights wherever possible and will forward user requests to Facebook.

 

Facebook Connect

Our website affords you the opportunity to log into the website using your existing Facebook profile data. To this end, we use Facebook Connect, a service provided by Facebook Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California, 94025, USA (“Facebook”). As soon as you have logged in with Facebook Connect, additional registration is not necessary.

If you wish to use this feature you will first be forwarded to Facebook. There you will be prompted to log in with your username and password. It goes without saying that we have no knowledge of your login details. If you are already logged into Facebook then this step will be skipped. Your email address and your public profile information (in particular your name, profile image, date of birth, gender, language and country, friends list and your ‘likes’) are then transferred to us when you confirm the procedure using the “Log in with Facebook” button. In the event that personal data is transmitted to the USA, Facebook has subscribed to the EU- US Privacy Shield. The legal basis for this is Art. 6(1) (1) (b) GDPR.

2.14 Web Fonts

For a visually enhanced display, our website uses web fonts provided by Adobe Typekit (Adobe Systems Software Ireland Limited, 4-6 Riverwalk, Citywest Business Campus, Dublin 24, Ireland). In order that the web fonts we embed can be integrated and displayed in your browser, when calling up the contact page your web browser must establish a connection with an Adobe server, which may also be located in the USA.

In the case whereby person data is transmitted to the USA, Adobe has subscribed to the EU-US Privacy Shield. Adobe thus receives the information that the contact page of our website was called up from the IP address of your device. The legal basis is Art. 6(1) (1) (f) GDPR, based on our legitimate interest in the integration of visually improved web fonts.

More detailed information on this can be found in the Adobe privacy policy.

 

2.15 Further data processing for marketing purposes

 

We also use data that we collect from our corporate customers (Business-to-Business / B2B) for our own marketing purposes.

We also use various service providers for the said marketing purposes, (e.g. Salesforce Corporation), to whom we only transfer data following careful selection and while ensuring an appropriate level of data protection is in place. Using this form of direct advertising, we pursue our legitimate interest in the advertisement of our products and services. The legal basis in this respect is Art. 6(1) (f) GDPR.

 

  • Google Tag Manager

Our website uses Google Tag Manager, a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). The Tag Manager is used to manage tracking tools and other services, so-called website tags. A tag is an element that is stored in the source text of our website, for example to record predefined usage data. The Google Tag Manager doesn’t require the use of cookies. The Google Tag Manager ensures that the usage data required by our partners (cf. the described data processing operations) is forwarded to them. Some of the data is processed on a Google server in the USA. In the event that personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield. The legal basis is Article 6(1)(1)(f) of the GDPR, based on our legitimate interest in the integration and management of several tags on our website in an uncomplicated manner.

As a rule, data collected by us will only be forwarded if:

  • You have issued your express consent in accordance with Art. 6(1) (1) (a) GDPR;

 

  • The forwarding is required in accordance with Art. 6(1) (1) (f) GDPR, in order to enforce, exercise or defend against legal claims and provided there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in preventing the forwarding of your data;

 

  • We are legally obliged in accordance with Art. 6(1)

In addition to the service providers mentioned in this data protection declaration, this may include, in particular, data centres that host our website and databases, IT service providers that maintain our system and supply and logistics service providers. Insofar as we forward data to our service providers, these service providers may only use the data for the fulfilment of their duties. The service providers are carefully selected and assigned by us. They are contractually bound to follow our instructions, they have suitable technological and organisational means by which to protect the rights of the concerned persons and are regularly inspected by us.

 

  1. Integration of the content and services of third parties

It may be the case that content from third parties, for example videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites may be integrated within our website. This always requires that the providers of this content (“third-party providers”) know your IP address. For without your IP address they cannot send the content to your browser. The IP address is therefore required in order to display this content. The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6(1) (b), f DSGVO.

We endeavour only to use content whereby the respective provider only uses the IP address in order to distribute the content. However, we have no influence over the situation if the third-party provider stores the IP address, for statistical purposes for example.

 

Google Maps

Our website uses the map service Google Maps from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland (“Google”). In order that the Google map material we use can be integrated and displayed in your web browser, when calling up the contact page your web browser must establish a connection with a Google server, which may also be located in the USA.

In the event that personal data is transmitted to the USA, Google has subscribed to the EU-US Privacy Shield. Google thus receives the information that the contact page of our website was called up from the IP address of your device. The legal basis is Art. 6(1) (1) (f) GDPR, based on our legitimate interest in the integration of a map service as a means of establishing contact.

If you call up the Google Maps service on our website while logged into your Google profile, Google can also link this event with your Google profile. If you do not want this assignment to your Google profile, you must log out of Google before calling up our contact page. Google stores your data and uses it for the purposes of advertisement, market research and the personalised display of Google Maps. You can raise an objection with Google with regard to this data collection.

More detailed information on this can be found in the Google Privacy Policy and the Additional Conditions of Use for Google Maps.

  1. Storage duration

As a general rule, we only store personal data for as long as is required for the fulfilment of the contractual or statutory obligations for which we collected the data.

For the purpose of providing evidence, we are required to retain contract data for a further three years from the end of the year in which business relations with you come to an end. Any claims shall lapse after the statutory standard limitation period, and no sooner than at this time.

  1. Data Security

We use current technical measures to guarantee data security, in particular for the protection of your personal data against risks during data transfer and against disclosure to third parties. These will be adjusted accordingly in line with the state of the art. In order to secure the personal data that you provide on our website, we use Transport Layer Security (TLS), which encrypts the information that you enter.
