data protection

We have written this data protection declaration (version 01 /01/1970-121496965) to explain to you in accordance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 what information we collect, how we use data and what options you have as a visitor to this website .

Unfortunately, it is in the nature of things that these explanations sound very technical, but we have tried to describe the most important things as simply and clearly as possible.

Automatic data storage

When you visit websites these days, certain information is automatically created and stored, including on this website.

If you visit our website as it is now, our web server (computer on which this website is stored) automatically saves data such as

  • the address (URL) of the accessed website

  • Browser and browser version

  • the operating system used

  • the address (URL) of the previously visited page (referrer URL)

  • the host name and the IP address of the device from which access is made

  • Date and Time

in files (web server log files).

As a rule, web server log files are stored for two weeks and then automatically deleted. We do not pass on this data, but we cannot rule out that this data will be viewed in the event of illegal behavior.

Cookies

Our website uses HTTP cookies to save user-specific data.
In the following we explain what cookies are and why they are used so that you can better understand the following data protection declaration.

What exactly are cookies?

Whenever you surf the Internet, you are using a browser. Well-known browsers include Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge. Most websites save small text files in your browser. These files are called cookies.

One thing cannot be dismissed out of hand: Cookies are really useful little helpers. Almost all websites use cookies. More precisely, they are HTTP cookies, as there are also other cookies for other areas of application. HTTP cookies are small files that our website stores on your computer. These cookie files are automatically placed in the cookie folder, which is the “brain” of your browser. A cookie consists of a name and a value. When defining a cookie, one or more attributes must also be specified.

Cookies store certain user data about you, such as language or personal page settings. When you call up our site again, your browser transmits the "user-related" information back to our site. Thanks to cookies, our website knows who you are and offers you the settings that you are used to. In some browsers each cookie has its own file, in others, such as Firefox, all cookies are stored in a single file.

There are both first-party cookies and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are created directly from our side, third-party cookies are created by partner websites (e.g. Google Analytics). Each cookie must be evaluated individually, as each cookie stores different data. The expiry time of a cookie also varies from a few minutes to a few years. Cookies are not software programs and do not contain viruses, Trojans or other "pests". Cookies cannot access information on your PC either.

For example, cookie data can look like this:

Name: _ga
Value: GA1.2.1326744211.152121496965-9
Purpose: Differentiation of website visitors
Expiry date: after 2 years

A browser should be able to support these minimum sizes:

  • At least 4096 bytes per cookie

  • At least 50 cookies per domain

  • At least 3000 cookies in total

What types of cookies are there?

The question of which cookies we use in particular depends on the services used and is clarified in the following sections of the data protection declaration. At this point we would like to briefly discuss the different types of HTTP cookies.

There are 4 types of cookies:

Essential cookies
These cookies are necessary to ensure basic functions of the website. For example, these cookies are needed when a user puts a product in the shopping cart, then continues surfing on other pages and only checks out later. These cookies do not delete the shopping cart, even if the user closes his browser window.

Appropriate cookies
These cookies collect information about user behavior and whether the user receives any error messages. In addition, these cookies are used to measure the loading time and the behavior of the website with different browsers.

Goal-oriented cookies
These cookies ensure better user-friendliness. For example, entered locations, font sizes or form data are saved.

Advertising cookies
These cookies are also called targeting cookies. They serve to deliver customized advertising to the user. That can be very practical, but also very annoying.

When you visit a website for the first time, you will usually be asked which of these types of cookies you would like to allow. And of course this decision is also saved in a cookie.

Wie kann ich Cookies löschen?

Wie und ob Sie Cookies verwenden wollen, entscheiden Sie selbst. Unabhängig von welchem Service oder welcher Webseite die Cookies stammen, haben Sie immer die Möglichkeit Cookies zu löschen, zu deaktivieren oder nur teilweise zuzulassen. Zum Beispiel können Sie Cookies von Drittanbietern blockieren, aber alle anderen Cookies zulassen.

Wenn Sie feststellen möchten, welche Cookies in Ihrem Browser gespeichert wurden, wenn Sie Cookie-Einstellungen ändern oder löschen wollen, können Sie dies in Ihren Browser-Einstellungen finden:

Chrome: Cookies in Chrome löschen, aktivieren und verwalten

Safari: Verwalten von Cookies und Websitedaten mit Safari

Firefox: Cookies löschen, um Daten zu entfernen, die Websites auf Ihrem Computer abgelegt haben

Internet Explorer: Löschen und Verwalten von Cookies

Microsoft Edge: Löschen und Verwalten von Cookies

Falls Sie grundsätzlich keine Cookies haben wollen, können Sie Ihren Browser so einrichten, dass er Sie immer informiert, wenn ein Cookie gesetzt werden soll. So können Sie bei jedem einzelnen Cookie entscheiden, ob Sie das Cookie erlauben oder nicht. Die Vorgangsweise ist je nach Browser verschieden. Am besten Sie suchen die Anleitung in Google mit dem Suchbegriff “Cookies löschen Chrome” oder “Cookies deaktivieren Chrome” im Falle eines Chrome Browsers.

Wie sieht es mit meinem Datenschutz aus?

Seit 2009 gibt es die sogenannten „Cookie-Richtlinien“. Darin ist festgehalten, dass das Speichern von Cookies eine Einwilligung von Ihnen verlangt. Innerhalb der EU-Länder gibt es allerdings noch sehr unterschiedliche Reaktionen auf diese Richtlinien. In Österreich erfolgte aber die Umsetzung dieser Richtlinie in § 96 Abs. 3 des Telekommunikationsgesetzes (TKG).

Wenn Sie mehr über Cookies wissen möchten und technische Dokumentationen nicht scheuen, empfehlen wir https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6265, dem Request for Comments der Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) namens “HTTP State Management Mechanism”.

Google Analytics Datenschutzerklärung

Wir verwenden auf unserer Website das Analyse-Tracking Tool Google Analytics (GA) des amerikanischen Unternehmens Google Inc. Für den europäischen Raum ist das Unternehmen Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Irland) für alle Google-Dienste verantwortlich. Google Analytics sammelt Daten über Ihre Handlungen auf unserer Website. Wenn Sie beispielsweise einen Link anklicken, wird diese Aktion in einem Cookie gespeichert und an Google Analytics versandt. Mithilfe der Berichte, die wir von Google Analytics erhalten, können wir unsere Website und unser Service besser an Ihre Wünsche anpassen. Im Folgenden gehen wir näher auf das Tracking Tool ein und informieren Sie vor allem darüber, welche Daten gespeichert werden und wie Sie das verhindern können.

Was ist Google Analytics?

Google Analytics ist ein Trackingtool, das der Datenverkehrsanalyse unserer Website dient. Damit Google Analytics funktioniert, wird ein Tracking-Code in den Code unserer Website eingebaut. Wenn Sie unsere Website besuchen, zeichnet dieser Code verschiedene Handlungen auf, die Sie auf unserer Website ausführen. Sobald Sie unsere Website verlassen, werden diese Daten an die Google-Analytics-Server gesendet und dort gespeichert.

Google verarbeitet die Daten und wir bekommen Berichte über Ihr Userverhalten. Dabei kann es sich unter anderem um folgende Berichte handeln:

  • Zielgruppenberichte: Über Zielgruppenberichte lernen wir unsere User besser kennen und wissen genauer, wer sich für unser Service interessiert.

  • Anzeigeberichte: Durch Anzeigeberichte können wir unsere Onlinewerbung leichter analysieren und verbessern.

  • Akquisitionsberichte: Akquisitionsberichte geben uns hilfreiche Informationen darüber, wie wir mehr Menschen für unser Service begeistern können.

  • Verhaltensberichte: Hier erfahren wir, wie Sie mit unserer Website interagieren. Wir können nachvollziehen welchen Weg Sie auf unserer Seite zurücklegen und welche Links Sie anklicken.

  • Conversionsberichte: Conversion nennt man einen Vorgang, bei dem Sie aufgrund einer Marketing-Botschaft eine gewünschte Handlung ausführen. Zum Beispiel, wenn Sie von einem reinen Websitebesucher zu einem Käufer oder Newsletter-Abonnent werden. Mithilfe dieser Berichte erfahren wir mehr darüber, wie unsere Marketing-Maßnahmen bei Ihnen ankommen. So wollen wir unsere Conversionrate steigern.

  • Echtzeitberichte: Hier erfahren wir immer sofort, was gerade auf unserer Website passiert. Zum Beispiel sehen wir wie viele User gerade diesen Text lesen.

Warum verwenden wir Google Analytics auf unserer Webseite?

Unser Ziel mit dieser Website ist klar: Wir wollen Ihnen das bestmögliche Service bieten. Die Statistiken und Daten von Google Analytics helfen uns dieses Ziel zu erreichen.

Die statistisch ausgewerteten Daten zeigen uns ein klares Bild von den Stärken und Schwächen unserer Website. Einerseits können wir unsere Seite so optimieren, dass sie von interessierten Menschen auf Google leichter gefunden wird. Andererseits helfen uns die Daten, Sie als Besucher besser zu verstehen. Wir wissen somit sehr genau, was wir an unserer Website verbessern müssen, um Ihnen das bestmögliche Service zu bieten. Die Daten dienen uns auch, unsere Werbe- und Marketing-Maßnahmen individueller und kostengünstiger durchzuführen. Schließlich macht es nur Sinn, unsere Produkte und Dienstleistungen Menschen zu zeigen, die sich dafür interessieren.

Welche Daten werden von Google Analytics gespeichert?

Google Analytics erstellt mithilfe eines Tracking-Codes eine zufällige, eindeutige ID, die mit Ihrem Browser-Cookie verbunden ist. So erkennt Sie Google Analytics als neuen User. Wenn Sie das nächste Mal unsere Seite besuchen, werden Sie als „wiederkehrender“ User erkannt. Alle gesammelten Daten werden gemeinsam mit dieser User-ID gespeichert. So ist es überhaupt erst möglich pseudonyme Userprofile auszuwerten.

Durch Kennzeichnungen wie Cookies und App-Instanz-IDs werden Ihre Interaktionen auf unserer Website gemessen. Interaktionen sind alle Arten von Handlungen, die Sie auf unserer Website ausführen. Wenn Sie auch andere Google-Systeme (wie z.B. ein Google-Konto) nützen, können über Google Analytics generierte Daten mit Drittanbieter-Cookies verknüpft werden. Google gibt keine Google Analytics-Daten weiter, außer wir als Websitebetreiber genehmigen das. Zu Ausnahmen kann es kommen, wenn es gesetzlich erforderlich ist.

Name: __utmv
Wert: keine Angabe
Verwendungszweck: Das Cookie wird verwendet, um benutzerdefinierte Userdaten zu speichern. Es wird immer aktualisiert, wenn Informationen an Google Analytics gesendet werden.
Ablaufdatum: nach 2 Jahren

Anmerkung: Diese Aufzählung kann keinen Anspruch auf Vollständigkeit erheben, da Google die Wahl ihrer Cookies immer wieder auch verändert.

Hier zeigen wir Ihnen einen Überblick über die wichtigsten Daten, die mit Google Analytics erhoben werden:

Heatmaps: Google legt sogenannte Heatmaps an. Über Heatmaps sieht man genau jene Bereiche, die Sie anklicken. So bekommen wir Informationen, wo Sie auf unserer Seite „unterwegs“ sind.

Sitzungsdauer: Als Sitzungsdauer bezeichnet Google die Zeit, die Sie auf unserer Seite verbringen, ohne die Seite zu verlassen. Wenn Sie 20 Minuten inaktiv waren, endet die Sitzung automatisch.

Absprungrate (engl. Bouncerate): Von einem Absprung ist die Rede, wenn Sie auf unserer Website nur eine Seite ansehen und dann unsere Website wieder verlassen.

Kontoerstellung: Wenn Sie auf unserer Website ein Konto erstellen bzw. eine Bestellung machen, erhebt Google Analytics diese Daten.

IP-Adresse: Die IP-Adresse wird nur in gekürzter Form dargestellt, damit keine eindeutige Zuordnung möglich ist.

Standort: Über die IP-Adresse kann das Land und Ihr ungefährer Standort bestimmt werden. Diesen Vorgang bezeichnet man auch als IP- Standortbestimmung.

Technische Informationen: Zu den technischen Informationen zählen unter anderem Ihr Browsertyp, Ihr Internetanbieter oder Ihre Bildschirmauflösung.

Herkunftsquelle: Google Analytics beziehungsweise uns interessiert natürlich auch über welche Website oder welche Werbung Sie auf unsere Seite gekommen sind.

Weitere Daten sind Kontaktdaten, etwaige Bewertungen, das Abspielen von Medien (z.B., wenn Sie ein Video über unsere Seite abspielen), das Teilen von Inhalten über Social Media oder das Hinzufügen zu Ihren Favoriten. Die Aufzählung hat keinen Vollständigkeitsanspruch und dient nur zu einer allgemeinen Orientierung der Datenspeicherung durch Google Analytics.

Wie lange und wo werden die Daten gespeichert?

Google hat Ihre Server auf der ganzen Welt verteilt. Die meisten Server befinden sich in Amerika und folglich werden Ihre Daten meist auf amerikanischen Servern gespeichert. Hier können Sie genau nachlesen wo sich die Google-Rechenzentren befinden: https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/?hl=de

Ihre Daten werden auf verschiedenen physischen Datenträgern verteilt. Das hat den Vorteil, dass die Daten schneller abrufbar sind und vor Manipulation besser geschützt sind. In jedem Google-Rechenzentrum gibt es entsprechende Notfallprogramme für Ihre Daten. Wenn beispielsweise die Hardware bei Google ausfällt oder Naturkatastrophen Server lahmlegen, bleibt das Risiko einer Dienstunterbrechung bei Google dennoch gering.

Standardisiert ist bei Google Analytics eine Aufbewahrungsdauer Ihrer Userdaten von 26 Monaten eingestellt. Dann werden Ihre Userdaten gelöscht. Allerdings haben wir die Möglichkeit, die Aufbewahrungsdauer von Nutzdaten selbst zu wählen. Dafür stehen uns fünf Varianten zur Verfügung:

  • Löschung nach 14 Monaten

  • Löschung nach 26 Monaten

  • Löschung nach 38 Monaten

  • Löschung nach 50 Monaten

  • Keine automatische Löschung

Wenn der festgelegte Zeitraum abgelaufen ist, werden einmal im Monat die Daten gelöscht. Diese Aufbewahrungsdauer gilt für Ihre Daten, die mit Cookies, Usererkennung und Werbe-IDs (z.B. Cookies der DoubleClick-Domain) verknüpft sind. Berichtergebnisse basieren auf aggregierten Daten und werden unabhängig von Nutzerdaten gespeichert. Aggregierte Daten sind eine Zusammenschmelzung von Einzeldaten zu einer größeren Einheit.

Wie kann ich meine Daten löschen bzw. die Datenspeicherung verhindern?

Nach dem Datenschutzrecht der Europäischen Union haben Sie das Recht, Auskunft über Ihre Daten zu erhalten, sie zu aktualisieren, zu löschen oder einzuschränken. Mithilfe des Browser-Add-ons zur Deaktivierung von Google Analytics-JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, dc.js) verhindern Sie, dass Google Analytics Ihre Daten verwendet. Das Browser-Add-on können Sie unter https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de runterladen und installieren. Beachten Sie bitte, dass durch dieses Add-on nur die Datenerhebung durch Google Analytics deaktiviert wird.

Falls Sie grundsätzlich Cookies (unabhängig von Google Analytics) deaktivieren, löschen oder verwalten wollen, gibt es für jeden Browser eine eigene Anleitung:

Chrome: Cookies in Chrome löschen, aktivieren und verwalten

Safari: Verwalten von Cookies und Websitedaten mit Safari

Firefox: Cookies löschen, um Daten zu entfernen, die Websites auf Ihrem Computer abgelegt haben

Internet Explorer: Löschen und Verwalten von Cookies

Microsoft Edge: Löschen und Verwalten von Cookies

Google Analytics ist aktiver Teilnehmer beim EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, wodurch der korrekte und sichere Datentransfer persönlicher Daten geregelt wird. Mehr Informationen dazu finden Sie auf https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&tid=121496965. Wir hoffen wir konnten Ihnen die wichtigsten Informationen rund um die Datenverarbeitung von Google Analytics näherbringen. Wenn Sie mehr über den Tracking-Dienst erfahren wollen, empfehlen wir diese beiden Links: http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html und https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.

Google Analytics IP anonymization

We have implemented the IP address anonymization of Google Analytics on this website. This function was developed by Google so that this website can comply with the applicable data protection regulations and recommendations of the local data protection authorities if they prohibit the storage of the full IP address. The anonymization or masking of the IP takes place as soon as the IP addresses arrive in the Google Analytics data collection network and before the data is stored or processed.

You can find more information on IP anonymization at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2763052?hl=de .

Google Analytics reports on demographics and interests

We have switched on the functions for advertising reports in Google Analytics. The demographics and interests reports include age, gender and interests. This enables us to get a better picture of our users - without being able to assign this data to individual persons. You can find out more about the advertising functions at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/3450482?hl=de_AT&utm_id=ad .

You can stop using the activities and information of your Google account under “Settings for advertising” at https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated by checking the box.

Google Analytics deactivation link

If you click on the following deactivation link, you can prevent Google from recording further visits to this website. Warning: The deletion of cookies, the use of the incognito / private mode of your browser, or the use of another browser will result in data being collected again.

Deactivate Google Analytics

Google Analytics add-on for data processing

We have concluded a direct customer contract with Google for the use of Google Analytics by accepting the “data processing addendum” in Google Analytics.

You can find out more about the addition on data processing for Google Analytics here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/3379636?hl=de&utm_id=ad

Google Analytics Google Signals Privacy Policy

We have activated the Google signals in Google Analytics. The existing Google Analytics functions (advertising reports, remarketing, cross-device reports and reports on interests and demographic characteristics) are updated in order to receive summarized and anonymized data from you, provided you have allowed personalized ads in your Google account.

The special thing about it is that it is a cross-device tracking. That means your data can be analyzed across all devices. By activating Google signals, data is recorded and linked to the Google account. This enables Google to recognize, for example, when you are viewing a product on our website using a smartphone and only later buy the product using a laptop. Thanks to the activation of Google signals, we can start cross-device remarketing campaigns that would otherwise not be possible in this form. Remarketing means that we can also show you our offer on other websites.

In Google Analytics, additional visitor data such as location, search history, YouTube history and data about your actions on our website are recorded by the Google signals. This gives us better advertising reports and more useful information about your interests and demographic characteristics from Google. This includes your age, what language you speak, where you live or what gender you belong to. There are also social criteria such as your job, your marital status or your income. All of these features help Google Analytics to define groups of people or target groups.

The reports also help us to better assess your behavior, your wishes and interests. This enables us to optimize and adapt our services and products for you. By default, this data expires after 26 months. Please note that this data collection only takes place if you have allowed personalized advertising in your Google account. It is always aggregated and anonymous data and never individual data. You can manage or delete this data in your Google account.

Facebook-Pixel data protection declaration

We use the Facebook pixel from Facebook on our website. We have implemented a code for this on our website. The Facebook pixel is an excerpt from JavaScript code that loads a collection of functions with which Facebook can track your user actions, provided you have come to our website via Facebook ads. For example, when you purchase a product on our website, the Facebook pixel is triggered and saves your actions on our website in one or more cookies. These cookies enable Facebook to compare your user data (customer data such as IP address, user ID) with the data of your Facebook account. Then Facebook deletes this data again. The data collected is anonymous and cannot be viewed by us and can only be used in the context of advertising. If you are a Facebook user yourself and are logged in, your visit to our website is automatically assigned to your Facebook user account.

We only want to show our services and products to those people who are really interested in them. With the help of Facebook pixels, our advertising measures can be better tailored to your wishes and interests. In this way, Facebook users (provided they have allowed personalized advertising) see appropriate advertising. Furthermore, Facebook uses the collected data for analysis purposes and its own advertisements.

In the following, we show you the cookies that were set on a test page by integrating Facebook pixels. Please note that these are only sample cookies. Different cookies are set depending on the interaction on our website.

Expiry date: after 12 months

Note: The cookies mentioned above relate to individual user behavior. Changes to Facebook can never be ruled out, especially when using cookies.

If you are logged in to Facebook, you can change your settings for advertisements yourself at https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen . If you are not a Facebook user, you can basically manage your usage-based online advertising at http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/ . There you have the option of deactivating or activating providers.

If you want to find out more about Facebook's data protection, we recommend the company's own data guidelines at https://www.facebook.com/policy.php .

Facebook automatic extended comparison data protection declaration

As part of the Facebook pixel function, we have also activated Automatic Advanced Matching. This pixel function enables us to send hashed e-mails, names, gender, city, state, postcode and date of birth or telephone number as additional information to Facebook, provided that you have provided us with this data. This activation enables us to tailor advertising campaigns on Facebook even more precisely to people who are interested in our services or products.

Google Tag Manager privacy policy

For our website we use the Google Tag Manager from Google Inc. For the European area, Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services. This Tag Manager is one of the many helpful marketing products from Google. Using the Google Tag Manager, we can centrally integrate and manage code sections from various tracking tools that we use on our website.

In this data protection declaration we want to explain in more detail what the Google Tag Manager does, why we use it and in what form data is processed.

What is the Google Tag Manager?

The Google Tag Manager is an organization tool with which we can integrate and manage website tags centrally and via a user interface. Tags are small sections of code that, for example, record (track) your activities on our website. JavaScript code sections are used in the source code of our site for this purpose. The tags often come from Google's internal products such as Google Ads or Google Analytics, but tags from other companies can also be integrated and managed via the manager. Such tags take on different tasks. You can collect browser data, feed marketing tools with data, integrate buttons, set cookies and also track users across multiple websites.

Why do we use Google Tag Manager for our website?

As the saying goes: organization is half the battle! And of course that also applies to the maintenance of our website. In order to make our website as good as possible for you and all people who are interested in our products and services, we need various tracking tools such as Google Analytics. The data collected by these tools shows us what interests you most, where we can improve our services and which people we should show our offers. And for this tracking to work, we have to integrate the corresponding JavaScript code into our website. In principle, we could incorporate each code section of the individual tracking tools separately into our source code. However, this takes a relatively long time and it is easy to lose track of things. That's why we use the Google Tag Manager. We can easily integrate the necessary scripts and manage them from one place. In addition, the Google Tag Manager offers an easy-to-use user interface and you do not need any programming knowledge. This is how we manage to keep order in our daytime jungle.

What data is saved by Google Tag Manager?

The Tag Manager itself is a domain that does not set cookies and does not save any data. He acts as a mere "administrator" of the implemented tags. The data capture the individual tags of the various web analysis tools. The data is passed through to the individual tracking tools in Google Tag Manager and is not saved.

The situation is completely different, however, with the integrated tags of the various web analysis tools, such as Google Analytics. Depending on the analysis tool, various data about your web behavior are usually collected, saved and processed with the help of cookies. To do this, please read our data protection texts on the individual analysis and tracking tools that we use on our website.

In the Tag Manager account settings, we have allowed Google to receive anonymized data from us. However, this only concerns the use and use of our Tag Manager and not your data, which is stored via the code sections. We enable Google and others to receive selected data in anonymized form. We therefore consent to our website data being passed on anonymously. In spite of long research, we were unable to find out exactly which summarized and anonymous data are forwarded. In any case, Google will delete all information that could identify our website. Google combines the data with hundreds of other anonymous website data and creates user trends as part of benchmarking measures. Benchmarking compares your own results with those of your competitors.

Google Site Kit Privacy Policy

We have integrated the WordPress plugin Google Site Kit from the American company Google Inc. into our website. Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services for the European region. With Google Site Kit, we can quickly and easily view statistics that come from various Google products such as Google Analytics directly in our WordPress dashboard. The tool or the tools integrated in Google Site Kit collect, among other things, personal data from you. In this data protection declaration, we explain why we use Google Site Kit, how long and where data is stored and which other data protection texts are relevant for you in this context.

What is Google Site Kit?

Google Site Kit is a plug-in for the WordPress content management system. With this plugin we can view important statistics for website analysis directly in our dashboard. These are statistics that are collected by other Google products. Above all from Google Analytics. In addition to Google Analytics, the services Google Search Console, Page Speed Insight, Google AdSense, Google Optimize and Google Tag Manager can also be linked to Google Site Kit.

Why do we use Google Site Kit on our website?

As a service provider, it is our job to offer you the best possible experience on our website. You should feel comfortable on our website and find exactly what you are looking for quickly and easily. Statistical evaluations help us to get to know you better and to adapt our offer to your wishes and interests. We use various Google tools for these evaluations. Site Kit makes our work much easier in this regard because we can view and analyze the statistics of Google products in the dashboard. We no longer have to register separately for the respective tool. Site Kit therefore always offers a good overview of the most important analysis data.

What data does Google Site Kit store?

If you have actively consented to tracking tools in the cookie notice (also called script or banner), Google products such as Google Analytics will set cookies and your data, for example about your user behavior, will be sent to Google, stored and processed there. This also includes personal data such as your IP address.

For more detailed information on the individual services, we have separate text sections in this data protection declaration. For example, take a look at our privacy policy for Google Analytics. Here we go into the data collected very carefully. You will learn how long Google Analytics stores, manages and processes data, which cookies can be used and how you can prevent data storage. We also have our own data protection declarations with comprehensive information for other Google services such as Google Tag Manager or Google AdSense.

How long and where is the data stored?

We have installed a tracking code on our website that is transmitted to the Hotjar servers in Ireland (EU). This tracking code contacts the Hotjar servers and sends a script to your computer or device that you use to access our site. The script collects certain data related to your interaction with our website. This data is then sent to Hotjar's servers for processing. Hotjar has imposed a 365-day data retention period on itself. This means that all data that Hotjar has collected and is older than a year is automatically deleted.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

Hotjar does not store any of your personal data for analysis. The company even advertises with the slogan “We track behavior, not individuals” (ie “We track user behavior, but no identifiable, individual data). You always have the option to prevent your data from being collected. All you have to do is go to the “ opt-out page ” and click “Deactivate Hotjar”. Please note that deleting cookies, using the private mode of your browser or using another browser will result in data being collected again. You can also activate the “Do Not Track” button in your browser. In the Chrome browser, for example, you have to click on the three bars at the top right and go to "Settings". There you will find the option “Send a“ Do Not Track ”request with browser access” in the “Data protection” section. Now all you have to do is activate this button and Hotjar will not collect any data.

You can find more details about the data protection guideline and which data is collected by Hotjar and how it is collected at https://www.hotjar.com/legal/policies/privacy?tid=121496965 .

Newsletter privacy policy

If you subscribe to our newsletter, you transmit the above personal data and give us the right to contact you by email. We only use the data saved when registering for the newsletter for our newsletter and do not pass it on.

If you unsubscribe from the newsletter - you will find the link for this at the bottom of every newsletter - then we will delete all data that was saved when you registered for the newsletter.

MailChimp privacy policy

Like many other websites, we also use the services of the newsletter company MailChimp on our website. MailChimp is operated by The Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308 USA. Thanks to MailChimp, we can send you interesting news very easily via newsletter. With MailChimp we don't have to install anything and we can still draw on a pool of really useful functions. In the following, we will go into more detail about this email marketing service and inform you about the most important aspects of data protection.

What is MailChimp?

MailChimp is a cloud-based newsletter management service. “Cloud-based” means that we don't have to install MailChimp on our own computer or server. Instead, we use the service via an IT infrastructure - which is available via the Internet - on an external server. This way of using software is also called SaaS (Software as a Service).

With MailChimp we can choose from a wide range of different email types. Depending on what we want to achieve with our newsletter, we can carry out individual campaigns, regular campaigns, autoresponders (automatic e-mails), A / B tests, RSS campaigns (sending out in a predefined time and frequency) and follow-up campaigns .

Why do we use MailChimp on our website?

In principle, we use a newsletter service so that we can stay in contact with you. We want to tell you what's new with us or what attractive offers we currently have in our program. We always look for the simplest and best solutions for our marketing measures. And for this reason, we also decided to use Mailchimp's newsletter management service. Although the software is very easy to use, it offers a large number of helpful features. In this way we can create interesting and beautiful newsletters in just a short time. With the design templates we offer, we design each newsletter individually and thanks to the "responsive design" our content is also displayed legibly and beautifully on your smartphone (or any other mobile device).

With tools such as the A / B test or the extensive analysis options, we can see very quickly how you get our newsletters. In this way we can react if necessary and improve our offer or our services.

Another advantage is Mailchimp's "cloud system". The data is not stored and processed directly on our server. We can retrieve the data from external servers and in this way save our storage space. In addition, the maintenance effort is significantly lower.

Which data is saved by MailChimp?

The Rocket Science Group LLC (MailChimp) maintains online platforms that enable us to contact you (provided you have subscribed to our newsletter). If you become a subscriber to our newsletter via our website, confirm your membership in an email list from MailChimp by email. So that MailChimp can also prove that you have registered yourself in the "list provider", the date of entry and your IP address are saved. MailChimp also stores your email address, name, physical address and demographic information such as language or location.

This information is used to send you e-mails and to enable certain other MailChimp functions (such as evaluation of the newsletter).

MailChimp also shares information with third party service providers to provide better services. MailChimp also shares some data with third-party advertising partners in order to better understand the interests and concerns of its customers so that more relevant content and targeted advertising can be provided.

Using so-called "web beacons" (small graphics in HTML emails), MailChimp can determine whether the email has arrived, whether it has been opened and whether links have been clicked. All of this information is stored on the MailChimp servers. This gives us statistical evaluations and enables us to see exactly how well you received our newsletter. In this way we can adapt our offer much better to your wishes and improve our service.

MailChimp may also use this data to improve its own service. This can, for example, technically optimize shipping or determine the location (country) of the recipient.

The following cookies can be set by Mailchimp. This is not a complete list of cookies, but rather an exemplary selection:

Name: AVESTA_ENVIRONMENT
Value: Prod
Purpose: This cookie is necessary to make the Mailchimp services available. It is always set when a user registers for a newsletter mailing list.
Expiration date: after the session ends

Name: ak_bmsc

Purpose: The cookie is used to distinguish a person from a bot. This enables secure reports on the use of a website to be generated.
Expiry date: after 2 hours

Name: bm_sv
Value: A5A322305B4401C2451FC22FFF547486 ~ FEsKGvX8eovCwTeFTzb8 // I3ak2Au…

Purpose: We could not find out any more information about the purpose of this cookie
Expiry date: after one year

Sometimes it can happen that you open our newsletter for a better presentation via a given link. This is the case, for example, if your e-mail program does not work or the newsletter is not displayed properly. The newsletter is then displayed on a MailChimp website. MailChimp also uses cookies (small text files that save data on your browser) on its own websites. Personal data can be processed by MailChimp and its partners (e.g. Google Analytics). This data collection is the responsibility of MailChimp and we have no influence on it. In the “Cookie Statement” from MailChimp (at: https://mailchimp.com/legal/cookies/ ) you can find out exactly how and why the company uses cookies.

How long and where is the data stored?

Since MailChimp is an American company, all collected data is also stored on American servers.

In principle, the data remains permanently stored on Mailchimp's servers and is only deleted when you request it. You can have your contact deleted by us. This permanently removes all your personal data for us and anonymizes you in the Mailchimp reports. However, you can also request the deletion of your data directly from MailChimp. Then all your data will be removed there and we will receive a notification from MailChimp. After we received the email, we have 30 days to delete your contact from all connected integrations.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

You can withdraw your consent to receive our newsletter at any time within the received email by clicking on the link in the area below. If you have unsubscribed by clicking on the unsubscribe link, your data will be deleted from MailChimp.

If you get to a MailChimp website via a link in our newsletter and cookies are set in your browser, you can delete or deactivate these cookies at any time.

Deactivating or deleting works a little differently depending on the browser. The following instructions show how to manage cookies in your browser:

Chrome: Delete, activate and manage cookies in Chrome

Safari: manage cookies and website data with Safari

Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have stored on your computer

Internet Explorer: deleting and managing cookies

Microsoft Edge: Deleting and managing cookies

If you generally do not want cookies, you can set up your browser so that it always informs you when a cookie is to be set. You can decide for each individual cookie whether or not to allow it.

MailChimp is an active participant in the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework, which regulates the correct and secure transfer of personal data. You can find more information on this at https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000TO6hAAG&tid=121496965 . You can find out more about the use of cookies at MailChimp at https://mailchimp.com/legal/cookies/ , information on data protection at MailChimp (privacy) can be found at https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/ .

MailChimp order data processing contract

We have concluded a contract with MailChimp on order data processing (Data Processing Addendum). This contract serves to secure your personal data and ensures that MailChimp adheres to the applicable data protection regulations and does not pass on your personal data to third parties.

You can find more information about this contract at https://mailchimp.com/legal/data-processing-addendum/ .

Google Ads (Google AdWords) Conversion Tracking Privacy Policy

We use Google Ads (formerly Google AdWords) as an online marketing measure to advertise our products and services. We want to make more people aware of the high quality of our offers on the Internet. As part of our advertising measures through Google Ads, we use conversion tracking from Google Inc. on our website. In Europe, however, Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services. With the help of this free tracking tool, we can better adapt our advertising offer to your interests and needs. In the following article we want to go into more detail about why we use conversion tracking, which data is stored and how you can prevent this data storage.

What is Google Ads Conversion Tracking?

Google Ads (formerly Google AdWords) is the in-house online advertising system of the company Google Inc. We are convinced of the quality of our offer and want as many people as possible to get to know our website. In the online area, Google Ads offers the best platform for this. Of course, we also want to get a precise overview of the cost-benefit factor of our promotions. That's why we use the Google Ads conversion tracking tool.

But what is a conversion actually? A conversion occurs when you change from a purely interested website visitor to an active visitor. This always happens when you click on our ad and then perform another action, such as visiting our website. With the conversion tracking tool from Google, we record what happens after a user clicks on our Google Ads ad. For example, we can see whether products are being purchased, services are being used or whether users have signed up for our newsletter.

Why do we use Google Ads conversion tracking on our website?

We use Google Ads to draw attention to our offer on other websites. The aim is that our advertising campaigns really only reach those people who are interested in our offers. With the conversion tracking tool, we can see which keywords, ads, ad groups and campaigns lead to the desired customer actions. We see how many customers interact with our ads on a device and then convert. With this data we can calculate our cost-benefit factor, measure the success of individual advertising measures and consequently optimize our online marketing measures. Furthermore, with the help of the data obtained, we can make our website more interesting for you and adapt our advertising offer even more individually to your needs.

What data is saved by Google Ads conversion tracking?

We have included a conversion tracking tag or code snippet on our website in order to better analyze certain user actions. If you now click on one of our Google Ads ads, the “Conversion” cookie from a Google domain is saved on your computer (usually in the browser) or mobile device. Cookies are small text files that save information on your computer.

Here are the data from the most important cookies for Google's conversion tracking:

Name: Conversion
Value: EhMI_aySuoyv4gIVled3Ch0llweVGAEgt-mr6aXd7dYlSAGQ121496965-3
Purpose: This cookie stores every conversion that you make on our site after you have come to us via a Google Ad.
Expiry date: after 3 months

Name: _gac
Value: 1.1558695989.EAIaIQobChMIiOmEgYO04gIVj5AYCh2CBAPrEAAYASAAEgIYQfD_BwE
Purpose: This is a classic Google Analytics cookie and is used to record various actions on our website.
Expiry date: after 3 months

Note: The _gac cookie only appears in connection with Google Analytics. The above list does not claim to be complete, as Google repeatedly uses other cookies for analytical evaluation.

As soon as you complete an action on our website, Google recognizes the cookie and saves your action as a so-called conversion. As long as you are surfing our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google will recognize that you have found us through our Google Ads ad. The cookie is read out and sent back to Google Ads with the conversion data. It is also possible that other cookies are used to measure conversions. Google Ads conversion tracking can be refined and improved with the help of Google Analytics. For ads that Google shows in different places on the web, cookies with the name “__gads” or “_gac” may be set under our domain. Since September 2017, various campaign information has been saved by analytics.js with the _gac cookie. The cookie saves this data as soon as you visit one of our pages for which Google Ads automatic tagging has been set up. In contrast to cookies that are set for Google domains, Google can only read these conversion cookies when you are on our website. We do not collect or receive any personal data. We get a report from Google with statistical evaluations. For example, we find out the total number of users who clicked on our ad and we can see which advertising measures were well received.

How long and where is the data stored?

At this point we want to point out that we have no influence on how Google uses the collected data. According to Google, the data is encrypted and stored on secure servers. In most cases, conversion cookies expire after 30 days and do not transmit any personal data. The cookies with the name "Conversion" and "_gac" (which is used in connection with Google Analytics) have an expiration date of 3 months.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

You have the option not to participate in Google Ads conversion tracking. If you deactivate the Google conversion tracking cookie via your browser, you block conversion tracking. In this case you will not be included in the statistics of the tracking tool. You can change the cookie settings in your browser at any time. This works a little differently for each browser. Here you will find instructions on how to manage cookies in your browser:

Chrome: Delete, activate and manage cookies in Chrome

Safari: manage cookies and website data with Safari

Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have stored on your computer

Internet Explorer: deleting and managing cookies

Microsoft Edge: Deleting and managing cookies

If you generally do not want cookies, you can set up your browser so that it always informs you when a cookie is to be set. In this way, you can decide for each individual cookie whether or not to allow the cookie. By downloading and installing this browser plug-in at https://support.google.com/ads/answer/7395996 , all "advertising cookies" are also deactivated. Please note that by deactivating these cookies you will not prevent the advertisements, only the personalized advertisements.

Through the certification for the American-European data protection agreement “Privacy Shield”, the American group Google LLC must comply with the data protection laws applicable in the EU. If you would like to find out more about data protection at Google, we recommend the general data protection declaration from Google: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de .

Embedded social media elements data protection declaration

We integrate elements of social media services on our website in order to display images, videos and texts.
When you visit pages that display these elements, data is transferred from your browser to the respective social media service and stored there. We have no access to this data.
The following links take you to the pages of the respective social media services where it is explained how they handle your data:

Facebook privacy policy

We use selected Facebook tools on our website. Facebook is a social media network operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2 Ireland. With the help of these tools we can offer you and people who are interested in our products and services the best possible offer. In the following we provide an overview of the various Facebook tools, which data is sent to Facebook and how you can delete this data.

What are Facebook tools?

In addition to many other products, Facebook also offers the so-called “Facebook Business Tools”. This is the official name of Facebook. But since the term is hardly known, we decided to just call them Facebook tools. These include:

  • Facebook pixel

  • social plug-ins (such as the "Like" or "Share" button)

  • Facebook login

  • Account Kit

  • APIs (programming interface)

  • SDKs (collection of programming tools)

  • Platform integrations

  • Plugins

  • Codes

  • Specifications

  • Documentation

  • Technologies and services

These tools enable Facebook to expand its services and to receive information about user activities outside of Facebook.

Why do we use Facebook tools on our website?

We only want to show our services and products to people who are really interested in them. With the help of advertisements (Facebook ads) we can reach exactly these people. However, in order to be able to show users appropriate advertising, Facebook needs information about people's wishes and needs. Information about user behavior (and contact details) is made available to the company on our website. As a result, Facebook collects better user data and can show interested people the right advertising about our products or services. The tools thus enable customized advertising campaigns on Facebook.

Facebook calls data about your behavior on our website “event data”. These are also used for measurement and analysis services. In this way, Facebook can create “campaign reports” on our behalf about the impact of our advertising campaigns. Furthermore, analyzes give us a better insight into how you use our services, website or products. Thereby we optimize your user experience on our website with some of these tools. For example, you can use the social plug-ins to share content on our site directly on Facebook.

Which data are saved by Facebook tools?

By using individual Facebook tools, personal data (customer data) can be sent to Facebook. Depending on the tools used, customer data such as name, address, telephone number and IP address can be sent.

Facebook uses this information to compare the data with the data it has about you (if you are a Facebook member). So-called “hashing” takes place before customer data is transmitted to Facebook. This means that any large data set is transformed into a character string. This is also used to encrypt data.

In addition to the contact details, "event data" are also transmitted. “Event data” means the information that we receive about you on our website. For example, which subpages you visit or which products you buy from us. Facebook does not share the information it receives with third parties (such as advertisers) unless the company has explicit permission or is legally obliged to do so. "Event data" can also be linked to contact details. This enables Facebook to offer better personalized advertising. After the above-mentioned comparison process, Facebook will delete the contact details again.

In order to be able to deliver advertisements in an optimized way, Facebook only uses the event data if this has been combined with other data (which were recorded by Facebook in another way). Facebook also uses this event data for security, protection, development and research purposes. Much of this data is transferred to Facebook via cookies. Cookies are small text files that are used to store data or information in browsers. Depending on the tools used and whether you are a Facebook member, a different number of cookies will be created in your browser. In the descriptions of the individual Facebook tools, we go into more detail on individual Facebook cookies. You can also find general information about the use of Facebook cookies at https://www.facebook.com/policies/cookies .

How long and where is the data stored?

In principle, Facebook saves data until it is no longer required for its own services and Facebook products. Facebook has servers all over the world where its data is stored. However, customer data will be deleted within 48 hours after it has been compared with your own user data.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

According to the General Data Protection Regulation, you have the right to information, correction, portability and deletion of your data.

The data will only be completely deleted if you completely delete your Facebook account. And this is how deleting your Facebook account works:

1) On the right side of Facebook, click Settings.

2) Then click in the left column on "Your Facebook information".

3) Now click “Deactivate and Delete”.

4) Now select "Delete account" and then click on "Next and delete account"

5) Now enter your password, click on "Next" and then on "Delete account"

The storage of the data that Facebook receives via our site takes place, among other things, via cookies (e.g. with social plugins). You can deactivate, delete or manage individual or all cookies in your browser. Depending on which browser you are using, this works in different ways. The following instructions show how to manage cookies in your browser:

Chrome: Delete, activate and manage cookies in Chrome

Safari: manage cookies and website data with Safari

Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have stored on your computer

Internet Explorer: deleting and managing cookies

Microsoft Edge: Deleting and managing cookies

If you generally do not want cookies, you can set up your browser so that it always informs you when a cookie is to be set. You can decide for each individual cookie whether or not to allow it.

Facebook is an active participant in the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework, which regulates the correct and secure transfer of personal data. You can find more information on this at https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC . We hope we have brought you the most important information about the use and data processing by the Facebook tools. If you want to learn more about how Facebook uses your data, we recommend the data guidelines at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/update .

Facebook social plug-ins privacy policy

So-called social plug-ins from Facebook Inc. are installed on our website. You can recognize these buttons by the classic Facebook logo, such as the “Like” button (the hand with a raised thumb) or a clear “Facebook plug-in” label. A social plug-in is a small part of Facebook that is integrated into our page. Each plug-in has its own function. The most used functions are the familiar “Like” and “Share” buttons.

The following social plug-ins are offered by Facebook:

  • “Save” button

  • "Like" button, share, send and quote

  • Page plug-in

  • Comments

  • Messenger plug-in

  • Embedded posts and video players

  • Group plug-in

At https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins you can find more information on how the individual plug-ins are used. We use the social plug-ins on the one hand to offer you a better user experience on our site, on the other hand because Facebook can optimize our advertisements.

If you have a Facebook account or have visited facebook.com before, Facebook has already set at least one cookie in your browser. In this case, your browser sends information to Facebook via this cookie as soon as you visit our site or interact with social plug-ins (e.g. the "Like" button).

The information received will be deleted or anonymized within 90 days. According to Facebook, this data includes your IP address, which website you visited, the date, time and other information relating to your browser.

In order to prevent Facebook from collecting a lot of data during your visit to our website and connecting it to the Facebook data, you must log out of Facebook while visiting the website.

If you are not logged in to Facebook or do not have a Facebook account, your browser sends less information to Facebook because you have fewer Facebook cookies. Nevertheless, data such as your IP address or which website you visit can be transmitted to Facebook. We would like to expressly point out that we do not have precise information about the exact content of the data. However, we try to inform you as much as possible about data processing based on our current state of knowledge. You can also read how Facebook uses the data in the company's data policy at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/update .

The following cookies are set in your browser at least when you visit a website with social plug-ins from Facebook:

Name: dpr
Value: not specified
Purpose: This cookie is used so that the social plug-ins work on our website.
Expiration date: after the session ends

Name: fr
Value: 0jieyh4121496965c2GnlufEJ9..Bde09j… 1.0.Bde09j
Purpose: The cookie is also necessary for the plug-ins to function properly.
Expiry date: after 3 months

Note: These cookies were set after a test, even if you are not a Facebook member.

If you are logged in to Facebook, you can change your settings for advertisements yourself at https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen . If you are not a Facebook user, you can basically manage your usage-based online advertising at http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/ . There you have the option of deactivating or activating providers.

If you want to find out more about Facebook's data protection, we recommend the company's own data guidelines at https://www.facebook.com/policy.php .

Facebook login privacy policy

We have integrated the practical Facebook login on our site. You can easily log in to us with your Facebook account without having to create another user account. If you decide to register using the Facebook login, you will be redirected to the social media network Facebook. There you log in using your Facebook user data. This login process saves data about you or your user behavior and transmits it to Facebook.

In order to save the data, Facebook uses various cookies. In the following we show you the most important cookies that are set in your browser or already exist when you log in to our site via Facebook:

  • a stored e-mail address

  • Friends lists

  • Button information (e.g. "Like" button)

  • Birthday date

  • language

  • place of residence

In return, we provide Facebook with information about your activities on our website. This includes information about the end device you are using, which subpages you visit on our site or which products you have purchased from us.

By using Facebook login, you consent to data processing. You can revoke this agreement at any time. If you want to find out more information about data processing by Facebook, we recommend the Facebook data protection declaration at https://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php .

Instagram privacy policy

We have installed Instagram functions on our website. Instagram is a social media platform operated by Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Rd, Menlo Park CA 94025, USA. Instagram has been a subsidiary of Facebook Inc. since 2012 and is a Facebook product. Embedding Instagram content on our website is called embedding. This enables us to show you content such as buttons, photos or videos from Instagram directly on our website. When you visit our website that has an Instagram function integrated, data is transmitted to Instagram, stored and processed. Instagram uses the same systems and technologies as Facebook. Your data will thus be processed across all Facebook companies.

In the following, we want to give you a more detailed insight into why Instagram collects data, what data it is and how you can largely control the data processing. Since Instagram belongs to Facebook Inc., we obtain our information from the Instagram guidelines on the one hand, but also from the Facebook data guidelines themselves on the other.

What is Instagram

Instagram is one of the most famous social media networks worldwide. Instagram combines the advantages of a blog with the advantages of audiovisual platforms such as YouTube or Vimeo. You can upload photos and short videos to “Insta” (as many of the users casually call the platform), edit them with various filters and also distribute them on other social networks. And if you don't want to be active yourself, you can just follow other interesting users.

Why do we use Instagram on our website?

Instagram is the social media platform that has really gone through the roof in recent years. And of course we have reacted to this boom too. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible on our website. That is why a varied preparation of our content is a matter of course for us. Thanks to the embedded Instagram functions, we can enrich our content with helpful, funny or exciting content from the Instagram world. Since Instagram is a subsidiary of Facebook, the data collected can also be used for personalized advertising on Facebook. Our advertisements only get to people who are really interested in our products or services.

Instagram also uses the collected data for measurement and analysis purposes. We get summarized statistics and thus more insight into your wishes and interests. It is important to note that these reports do not personally identify you.

What data does Instagram store?

If you come across one of our pages that has Instagram functions (such as Instagram images or plug-ins) installed, your browser automatically connects to the Instagram servers. In doing so, data is sent to Instagram, stored and processed. Regardless of whether you have an Instagram account or not. This includes information about our website, about your computer, about purchases made, about advertisements that you see and how you use our offer. The date and time of your interaction with Instagram are also saved. If you have an Instagram account or are logged in, Instagram saves significantly more data about you.

Facebook differentiates between customer data and event data. We assume this is exactly the case with Instagram. Customer data are, for example, name, address, telephone number and IP address. This customer data will only be transmitted to Instagram if it has been "hashed" beforehand. Hashing means that a data record is converted into a character string. This allows you to encrypt the contact details. In addition, the above-mentioned "event data" are also transmitted. Facebook - and consequently Instagram - understands “event data” to mean data about your user behavior. It can also happen that contact data is combined with event data. The contact details collected are compared with the data Instagram already has about you.

The collected data is transmitted to Facebook via small text files (cookies), which are usually set in your browser. Depending on the Instagram functions used and whether you have an Instagram account yourself, different amounts of data are stored.

We assume that data processing on Instagram works the same as on Facebook. This means: if you have an Instagram account or have visited www.instagram.com , Instagram has set at least one cookie. If this is the case, your browser sends information to Instagram via the cookie as soon as you come into contact with an Instagram function. After 90 days at the latest (after reconciliation), this data will be deleted or anonymized. Although we have dealt intensively with data processing by Instagram, we cannot say exactly which data Instagram collects and stores.

In the following we show you cookies that are set in your browser at least when you click on an Instagram function (such as a button or an Insta picture). Our test assumes that you do not have an Instagram account. If you are logged in to Instagram, significantly more cookies will of course be set in your browser.

These cookies were used in our test:

Expiration date: after the end of the session

Note: We cannot claim to be complete here. Which cookies are set in the individual case depends on the embedded functions and your use of Instagram.

How long and where is the data stored?

Instagram shares the information received between the Facebook companies with external partners and with people with whom you connect worldwide. The data processing takes place in compliance with our own data guidelines. For security reasons, among other things, your data is distributed on Facebook servers around the world. Most of these servers are in the USA.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

Thanks to the General Data Protection Regulation, you have the right to information, portability, correction and deletion of your data. You can manage your data in the Instagram settings. If you want to completely erase your data on Instagram, you have to delete your Instagram account permanently.

And this is how the deletion of the Instagram account works:

First, open the Instagram app. On your profile page, go down and click on "Help Center". You are now on the company's website. On the website, click on "Manage Your Account" and then on "Delete Your Account".

If you delete your account entirely, Instagram will delete posts such as your photos and status updates. Information that other people have shared about you does not belong to your account and therefore will not be deleted.

As already mentioned above, Instagram stores your data primarily via cookies. You can manage, deactivate or delete these cookies in your browser. Management always works a little differently depending on your browser. Here we show you the instructions for the most important browsers.

Chrome: Delete, activate and manage cookies in Chrome

Safari: manage cookies and website data with Safari

Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have stored on your computer

Internet Explorer: deleting and managing cookies

Microsoft Edge: Deleting and managing cookies

You can also set up your browser so that you are always informed when a cookie is to be set. Then you can always decide individually whether you want to allow the cookie or not.

Instagram is a subsidiary of Facebook Inc. and Facebook is an active participant in the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework. This framework ensures correct data transfer between the USA and the European Union. You can find out more about this at https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC . We have tried to give you the most important information about data processing by Instagram. On https://help.instagram.com/519522125107875

Google reCAPTCHA privacy policy

Our primary goal is to secure and protect our website for you and for us in the best possible way. To ensure this, we use Google reCAPTCHA from Google Inc. For the European area, Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services. With reCAPTCHA we can determine whether you are really a flesh and blood human and not a robot or other spam software. We understand spam to be any unsolicited information that comes to us electronically. With the classic CAPTCHAS you mostly had to solve text or picture puzzles to check. With reCAPTCHA from Google, we usually don't have to bother you with such puzzles. In most cases, it is sufficient to simply tick the box and confirm that you are not a bot. With the new Invisible reCAPTCHA version you don't even have to check the box anymore. How this works exactly and, above all, which data is used for it, you will find out in the course of this data protection declaration.

What is reCAPTCHA?

reCAPTCHA is a free captcha service from Google that protects websites from spam software and misuse by non-human visitors. The most common use of this service is when filling out forms on the Internet. A captcha service is a type of automatic Turing test that is designed to ensure that an action on the Internet is carried out by a human and not by a bot. In the classic Turing test (named after the computer scientist Alan Turing), a person determines the difference between bot and human. With captchas, this is also done by the computer or a software program. Classic captchas work with small tasks that are easy for humans to solve, but are very difficult for machines. With reCAPTCHA, you no longer have to actively solve puzzles. The tool uses modern risk techniques to distinguish people from bots. Here you only have to tick the text field "I am not a robot" or with Invisible reCAPTCHA even that is no longer necessary. With reCAPTCHA, a JavaScript element is integrated into the source text and then the tool runs in the background and analyzes your user behavior. From these user actions, the software calculates a so-called captcha score. Google uses this score to calculate the probability that you are human before entering the captcha. reCAPTCHA or captchas in general are always used when bots could manipulate or abuse certain actions (such as registrations, surveys, etc.).

Why do we use reCAPTCHA on our website?

We only want to welcome people of flesh and blood on our side. Bots or spam software of all kinds can safely stay at home. That is why we are doing all we can to protect ourselves and offer you the best possible user-friendliness. For this reason we use Google reCAPTCHA from Google. So we can be pretty sure that we will remain a “bot-free” website. By using reCAPTCHA, data is transmitted to Google in order to determine whether you are really human. reCAPTCHA therefore serves the security of our website and consequently also your security. For example, without reCAPTCHA, it could happen that a bot registers as many email addresses as possible in order to "spam" on forums or blogs with unwanted advertising content. With reCAPTCHA we can avoid such bot attacks.

What data is stored by reCAPTCHA?

reCAPTCHA collects personal data from users in order to determine whether the actions on our website really come from people. The IP address and other data that Google needs for the reCAPTCHA service can therefore be sent to Google. IP addresses are almost always shortened beforehand within the member states of the EU or other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before the data ends up on a server in the USA. The IP address will not be combined with other Google data unless you are logged in to your Google account while using reCAPTCHA. First, the reCAPTCHA algorithm checks whether Google cookies from other Google services (YouTube, Gmail, etc.) have already been placed on your browser. ReCAPTCHA then sets an additional cookie in your browser and takes a snapshot of your browser window.

The following list of collected browser and user data does not claim to be complete. Rather, they are examples of data that, to our knowledge, are processed by Google.

  • Referrer URL (the address of the page from which the visitor comes)

  • IP address (e.g. 256.123.123.1)

  • Information about the operating system (the software that enables your computer to operate. Known operating systems are Windows, Mac OS X or Linux)

  • Cookies (small text files that save data in your browser)

  • Mouse and keyboard behavior (every action you perform with the mouse or keyboard is saved)

  • Date and language settings (which language or which date you have preset on your PC is saved)

  • All Javascript objects (JavaScript is a programming language that enables websites to adapt to the user. JavaScript objects can collect all possible data under one name)

  • Screen resolution (shows how many pixels the picture consists of)

It is undisputed that Google uses and analyzes this data even before you click on the tick “I am not a robot”. With the Invisible reCAPTCHA version, there is even no ticking and the entire recognition process runs in the background. How much and which data Google stores exactly cannot be learned from Google in detail.

The following cookies are used by reCAPTCHA: Here we refer to the reCAPTCHA demo version from Google at https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api2/demo . All of these cookies require a unique identifier for tracking purposes. Here is a list of cookies that Google reCAPTCHA has set on the demo version:

Expiry date: after 10 minutes

Note: This list cannot claim to be complete, as experience has shown that Google changes the choice of cookies again and again.

How long and where is the data stored?

By inserting reCAPTCHA, your data will be transferred to the Google server. Where exactly this data is stored, Google does not clearly state, even after repeated inquiries. Without having received a confirmation from Google, it can be assumed that data such as mouse interaction, time spent on the website or language settings on the European or American Google Servers. The IP address that your browser transmits to Google is generally not merged with other Google data from other Google services. However, if you are logged into your Google account while using the reCAPTCHA plug-in, the data will be merged. The differing data protection regulations of Google apply for this.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

If you do not want any data about you or your behavior to be transmitted to Google, you must completely log out of Google and delete all Google cookies before you visit our website or use the reCAPTCHA software. In principle, the data is automatically transmitted to Google as soon as you visit our website. To delete this data again, you must contact Google support at https://support.google.com/?hl=de&tid=121496965 .

So when you use our website, you agree that Google LLC and its representatives automatically collect, process and use data.

You can find out a little more about reCAPTCHA on Google's web developer page at https://developers.google.com/recaptcha/ . Google goes into the technical development of the reCAPTCHA in more detail here, but you will look in vain for precise information about data storage and data protection issues. A good overview of the basic use of data by Google can be found in the in-house data protection declaration at https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/ .

Custom Google Search Privacy Policy

We have integrated the Google plug-in for user-defined searches on our website. Google is the largest and best-known search engine worldwide and is operated by the US company Google Inc. Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for the European area. The custom Google search can transfer data from you to Google. In this data protection declaration we inform you why we use this plug-in, which data is processed and how you can manage or prevent this data transfer.

What is Google Custom Search?

The plug-in for custom Google search is a Google search bar directly on our website. The search takes place like on www.google.com , only the search results focus on our content and products or on a limited search circle.

Why do we use custom Google search on our website?

A website with a lot of interesting content often becomes so big that you might lose track of it. Over time, we have also accumulated a lot of valuable material and, as part of our service, we want you to find our content as quickly and easily as possible. Custom Google Search makes finding interesting content a breeze. The built-in Google plug-in improves the overall quality of our website and makes searching easier for you.

What data is saved by the custom Google search?

The custom Google search will only transfer data from you to Google if you actively use the Google search built into our website. This means that only when you enter a search term in the search bar and then confirm this term (eg click on “Enter”) your IP address will be sent to Google, saved and processed in addition to the search term. Based on the cookies set (such as 1P_JAR), it can be assumed that Google will also receive data on website usage. If you are looking for content during your visit to our website using the built-in Google search function and are logged into your Google account at the same time, Google can also assign the data collected to your Google account. As the website operator, we have no influence on what Google does with the data collected or how Google processes the data.

The following cookies are set in your browser if you use the custom Google search and are not signed in with a Google account:

Name: 1P_JAR

Note: This list cannot claim to be complete, as Google changes the choice of their cookies again and again.

How long and where is the data stored?

The Google servers are distributed all over the world. Since Google is an American company, most of the data is stored on American servers. At https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/?hl=de you can see exactly where the Google servers are.
Your data is distributed on various physical data carriers. This means that the data can be accessed more quickly and better protected against possible manipulation. Google also has emergency programs for your data. If, for example, there are internal technical problems at Google and the servers no longer function as a result, th
