In principle, we collect and use the personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services. The collection and use of the personal data of our users takes place regularly only with the consent of the user. An exception applies to cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and processing of the data is permitted by law.
1.1 Legal Basis for the processing of your data:
- Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

- If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.
1.2 Legitimate interests may include, in particular:

An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context. Our legitimate interest also lies in the data processing for these purposes. The data will be deleted as soon as their storage is longer necessary for the purpose for which they were collected. This is the case when data are collected for the provision of the website and the respective session has been ended. Furthermore, we reserve the right to check the files if, on the basis of concrete evidence, there is legitimate suspicion of unlawful use or a specific attack on the web pages. In this case, our legitimate interest is processing for the purposes of investigating and prosecuting such attacks and illegal uses.

The other personal data processed during the sending process serves to prevent misuse of the contact forms and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose for which they were collected. This is the case for the personal data from the input mask of the contact forms and those sent by e-mail when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation ends when it is clear from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified. The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.

19. Google Ads Conversion/Google Dynamic Remarketing
We use the offer of Google Ad to draw attention to our services by means of advertising material (so-called Google Ads) on external websites. In relation to the data of the advertising campaigns, we can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are. In this way we pursue the interest to show you advertising that is of interest to you, to make our website more interesting for you and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs.
These advertising materials are delivered by Google via so-called “Ad Servers”. For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, through which certain parameters can be measured to measure success, such as the display of ads or clicks by users. If you reach our website via a Google ad, Google Ads will store a cookie in your PC. These cookies usually expire after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. The unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be contacted) are usually stored as analysis values for this cookie.
These cookies enable Google to recognize your internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an ads client’s website and the cookie stored on their computer has not expired, Google and the client can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page. A different cookie is assigned to each ad client. Cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of ad clients. We ourselves do not collect and process any personal data in the advertising measures mentioned above. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. By means of these evaluations we can recognize which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising material, in particular we cannot identify the users on the basis of this information.
Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of Ads Conversion, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider will find out and save your IP address.
You can prevent this tracking procedure in various ways:
a) by adjusting your browser software accordingly, in particular the suppression of third-party cookies means that you will not receive advertisements from third-party providers;
b) by disabling cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain “googleadservices.com“, https://www.google.de/settings/ads, although this setting will be deleted if you delete your cookies;
c) by deactivating the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the self-regulation campaign “About Ads” via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices, whereby this setting will be deleted if you delete your cookies;
d) by permanently deactivating them in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browsers via the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this offer to their full extent.

Besides Adwords Conversion we use the application Google Remarketing. This is a procedure with which we would like to address you again. This application enables us to display our advertisements on your further internet use after you have visited our website. This is done by means of cookies stored in your browser, which are used by Google to record and evaluate your usage behaviour when visiting various websites. This enables Google to determine your previous visit to our website. According to Google, a combination of the data collected in the course of remarketing with your personal data, which may be stored by Google, does not take place. In particular, according to Google, pseudonymisation is used in remarketing.

28. Integration of Twitter Plugins
Some of our websites use plugins and services from Twitter Inc, 795 Folsom St, Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA, and are connected by buttons or links with “Twitter” or “Follow” or an image with a blue bird. This makes it possible to share a post or page on Twitter or to follow an account or topic on Twitter. When you call up a web page of this website that contains such a button, your browser establishes a connection with the servers of Twitter in order to transmit the content of the button to your browser. Clicking the button or activating the plugin constitutes your consent within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.

29. Integration of XING Button
30. Integration of LinkedIn Button
On some of our websites, we use plugins of the social network LinkedIn, operated by LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“LinkedIn”). The plugin is recognisable by the LinkedIn logo or a corresponding “Recommend” label on the button. When you visit our websites, a connection is created between your browser and LinkedIn via the plugin. LinkedIn receives the information that you have visited our site through your IP address. If you click the LinkedIn button while you are logged in to LinkedIn, you can link the content of our pages on your LinkedIn profile. This enables LinkedIn to assign the visit to our website to your profile. Clicking the button or activating the plugin constitutes your consent within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.
As the provider of the websites, we have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by LinkedIn. In cases where data is transferred to the USA, this is done on the basis of standard contractual clauses.

The mapping tool “Open Street Maps” is implemented on our website via an API interface. This is an open source street map from the OpenStreetMap Foundation, St John’s Innovation Centre, Cowley Road, Cambridge, CB4 0WS, United Kingdom. In order to provide the OpenStreetMap, it is necessary to store your IP address. Your IP address is transmitted to the OpenStreetMap servers and processed there. Tracking and analysis procedures may also be carried out by OpenStreetMap for the purpose of error analysis. We have no influence on this or on the transmission of your data.
OpenStreetMap is used in the interest of making it easier to find our place of business. The legal basis for the provision of this service is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.
