1. Data protection at a glance

General information

The following notes provide a simple overview of what happens to your personal data when you visit our website. Personal data means all data that you can be personally identified with. You can find more information on data protection in our privacy policy below.

Data collection on our website

Who is responsible for data collection on this website?

 

The company named in the imprint is responsible.

 

How do we collect your data?

On the one hand, your data is collected by you communicating it to us. This may, for example, involve data that you enter in a contact form.

Other data is automatically collected by our IT systems when you visit the website. These are mainly technical data (e.g. Internet browser, operating system or time of the page call). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.

What do we use your data for?

Part of the data is collected to ensure that the website is error-free. Other data can be used to analyse your user behaviour in order to optimise our website. We use the data that you specifically provide to us, for example in the contact form, to process your respective request.

Why may we process your data?

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures. The legal basis for the optimisation of the website results from Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

What rights do you have with regard to your data?

(1) You have the right at any time and free of charge to obtain information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data. If you have given your consent to the use of data, you can withdraw it at any time. You also have the right to demand the correction, blocking or deletion of this data.

(2) You have the right to obtain your data we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible party, this will only be done to the extent that this is technically feasible.

(3) In the event of breaches of data protection law, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. A list of the supervisory authorities and their contact details can be found at the following link: www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html

Analysis tools and third-party tools

When you visit our website, your surfing behaviour can be statistically evaluated. This is done primarily with cookies and so-called analysis programs. The analysis of your surfing behaviour is usually anonymous; the surfing behaviour cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools. Detailed information on this can be found in the following privacy statement.

You can object to this analysis. You will find information about the possibilities of objection under the item “What rights do you have with regard to your data?”.

2. General information and mandatory information

Data protection

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and according to the legal data protection regulations as well as this data protection explanation. We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can be subject to security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Objection to advertising mails

We hereby object to the use of contact data published within the scope of the imprint obligation to send unsolicited advertising and information material. The operators of this website explicitly reserve the right to take legal action against unsolicited mailing or e-mailing of spam and other similar advertising materials.

External links

Our website offers you external links within our partner references. This data protection declaration does not extend to the pages of the external providers; the data protection declarations of the respective providers apply there. However, we always endeavour to ensure that the respective providers comply with the data protection standards.

4. Affected rights

Note on your rights

As a subject of data processing, you have the following rights under the Basic Data Protection Ordinance (hereinafter also referred to as "Data Subject Rights"):

Information rights (according to Article 15 DSGVO)

You have the right to request information as to whether we process personal data about you or not. If we process personal data from you, you have the right to know,

why we process your data

what types of personal data we process

what types of recipients receive or are to receive your personal data

how long we store your data; if it is not possible to specify the storage period, we must inform you how the storage period is to be determined (e.g. after expiry of statutory storage periods)

that you have the right to rectify and delete data concerning you, including the right to limit the processing and/or the possibility of objecting

that you have the right to appeal to a supervisory authority

where your data originate, if we should not have collected it directly from you

if your data will be used for an automatic decision and, if so, to know what the logic of the decision is and what consequences the automated decision-making may have for you

that, if data about you is transferred to a country outside the European Union, you are entitled to information as to whether it is so and, if it is so, on the basis of which guarantees an adequate level of protection is ensured for the data recipient

that you have the right to request a copy of your personal data. Data copies are always made available in electronic form. The first copy is free of charge; a reasonable fee may be charged for further copies. A copy can only be made available if the rights of other persons are not affected by this.

Right to rectify data (according to Article 16 DSGVO)

You have the right to ask us to rectify your data if it is incorrect and/or incomplete. This right also includes the right to complete data by means of additional declarations or notes. Corrections and/or additions must be made without undue delay.

Right to delete your personal data (according to article 17 DSGVO)

You have the right to ask us to delete your personal data if

personal data is no longer required for the purposes they were collected and processed for;

the data processing takes place on the basis of a consent given by you and you have withdrawn the consent.

 (However, this does not apply if

- another legal permission for the data processing exists;

- you have objected to data processing  the legal permission of which is in the so-called "legitimate interest" (as defined in Article 6(1)(e) or (f));

- there are legitimate and prior reasons for further processing.)

 ■you have objected to data processing for the purpose of direct marketing;

your personal data have been unlawfully processed;

a child's data has been collected for information society services (=electronic service) on the basis of consent (pursuant to Art. 8 para. 1 DSGVO).

 The right to have your personal data deleted does not exist if

the right to freedom of expression and information is contrary to the request for deletion;

the processing of personal data is required

-for the fulfilment of a legal obligation (e.g. legal storage obligations),

-to perform public tasks and interests in accordance with applicable law (including "public health") or

-for archiving and/or research purposes

personal data is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.

The deletion must take place immediately (without culpable hesitation). If personal data has been made public by us (e.g. on the Internet), we must ensure within the framework of what is technically possible and reasonable that other data processors are also informed of the request for deletion, including the deletion of links, copies and/or replications.

Right to limit data processing (Art. 18 DSGVO)

You have the right to limit the processing of your personal data in the following cases:

If you have contested the accuracy of your personal data, you may request that we not use your data for any other purpose for the duration of the accuracy check and thus restrict its processing.

In instances of unlawful data processing you can demand the restriction of data use instead of data deletion.

If you need your personal data to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, but we no longer need your personal data, you can demand that we restrict processing to the purposes of legal prosecution.

If you have lodged an objection against data processing (Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO) and it is not yet clear whether our interests in processing outweigh your interests, you may demand that your data not be used for other purposes for the duration of the audit and that their processing is thus restricted.

Personal data the processing of which has been restricted at your request, subject to storage, may only be processed

with your consent,

to assert, exercise or defense legal claims,

to protect rights of other natural or legal persons, or

for reasons of important public interest.

Should a processing restriction be lifted, you will be informed in advance.

Right to data transfer (Art. 20 DSGVO)

You have the right to request the data which you have made available to us from us in a common electronic format (e.g. as a PDF or Excel document). You may also request us to transfer this data directly to another company (designated by you), provided that this is technically possible. The prerequisite for you having this right is that the processing is carried out on the basis of a consent or for the execution of a contract and with the aid of automated procedures. The exercise of the right to data transferability must not impair the rights and freedoms of other persons. If you make use of the right to data transfer, you still have the right to data deletion in accordance with Article 17 DSGVO.

Right to object to certain data processing operations (Art. 21 DSGVO)

If your data is processed for the performance of tasks in the public interest or for the performance of legitimate interests, you may object to this processing. You must explain to us the reasons resulting from your particular situation for your objection. These can be, for example, special family circumstances or secrecy interests worthy of protection.

In the event of an objection, we must refrain from any further processing of your data for the aforementioned purposes, unless,

there are compelling and legitimate reasons for processing which override its interests, rights and freedoms, or

the processing is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

You can object to the use of your personal data for direct marketing at any time; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected with direct marketing. In the event of an objection, we may no longer use your data for direct marketing. Direct marketing and/or profiling will under no circumstances be initiated or carried out by us.

Prohibition of automated decisions/profiling (Art. 22 DSGVO)

Decisions made by us, which have a legal consequence for you or significantly affect you, must not be based exclusively on automated processing of personal data. This also includes profiling.

This prohibition does not apply insofar as the automated decision

is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract with you is necessary,

is permitted by law if that law contains reasonable measures to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or

takes place with your explicit consent.

Decisions based exclusively on automated processing of special categories of personal data (= sensitive data) are only permissible if they are based on your explicit consent or if there is a considerable public interest in the processing and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.

Exercise of data subject rights

In order to exercise the rights of data subjects, please contact the authorities mentioned under point 1. Queries submitted electronically will generally be answered electronically. The information, notifications and measures to be made available under the DSGVO, including "the exercise of data subjects' rights, are generally provided free of charge. Only in the case of manifestly unfounded or excessive applications are we entitled to charge an appropriate fee for the processing or to refrain from taking action (Art. 12 para. 5 DSGVO).

If there are justified doubts as to your identity, we may request additional information from you for the purpose of identification. If we are unable to identify you, we are entitled to refuse to process your request. If we are unable to identify you, we will inform you separately as far as possible (see Art. 12 para. 6 and Art. 11 DSGVO).

Requests for information are usually processed immediately (within one month) upon receipt. The time limit may be extended by a further two months if this is necessary in view of the complexity and/or number of requests; in the event of an extension of the time limit, we will inform you of the reasons for the delay within one month upon receipt of your request. If we do not act on a request, we will inform you immediately within one month upon receipt of the reasons for the delay and inform you of the possibility of lodging a complaint with a supervisory authority or of taking legal action. (Art. 12 para. 3; 4 DSGVO).

Please note that you can only exercise your rights of data subjects within the framework of restrictions and limitations provided by the Union or the member states (Art. 23 DSGVO).

5. The use of Google Analytics on this website

We would like to use the "Google Analytics" service in the "Universal" variant on this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, registration number: 368047, with its registered office at Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as "Google").

The use of this analysis service requires your prior consent. You can give your consent in the Consent banner (by clicking on "Allow cookies"). To revoke your consent with effect for the future, you can call up the Consent banner again and click on "Decline". If you give your consent, the "Google Ads" service will also be activated.

By means of Google Analytics, we can learn more about you as a visitor to the website and how you interact with it. This means that we need to collect data for this purpose. This can be, for example, the following:

 

  • The content (sub-pages) of our website that you have viewed,
  • the duration of your visit to our website,
  • the search terms that you used to find our website,
  • the website from which you arrived at our website,
  • the browser and version you are using,
  • your demographic characteristics, e.g. your language and location settings,
  • which IT system (PC / smartphone, ...) you are using
  • and much more.

To collect the data, Google Analytics uses cookies. These are small units of information that are stored on your computer as script files or small databases, depending on your browser. The following cookies are used:

CookieScopePurposeStorage duration
_ga1st PartyContains a randomly generated user ID. This ID allows Google Analytics to recognize returning users on this website and merge data from previous visits.2 Years
_gid1st PartyContains a randomly generated user ID. This ID allows Google Analytics to recognize returning users on this website and merge data from previous visits.24 Hours
_gat1st PartyCertain data is only sent to Google Analytics a maximum of once per minute. The cookie has a lifetime of one minute. As long as it is set, certain data transfers are prevented.1 Minute

When you visit our website, only from your active and voluntary consent to the processing of your personal data, according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO, the legal requirement for the use of Google Analytics on this website and the storage of cookies on your terminal device is created.

If you have given your consent, Google will use the information obtained on our behalf for the purpose of evaluating the use of our online offer by users, compiling reports on the activities within this online offer and providing us with other services relating to the use of this online offer and internet usage. In doing so, pseudonymous usage profiles of the users can be created from the processed data. 

With these privacy-friendly settings, we use Google Analytics:

  • In Page Analysis, Advanced Link Mapping "OFF".
  • Demographic characteristics "OFF
  • Remarketing "OFF"
  • User analytics "Enable measured value users in reports" "OFF".
  • Data retention: 14 months (lowest value).
  • Reset on new activity "ON
  • Additional function "anonymizeIp" is activated
    This means the IP address of users will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. According to Google, the IP address transmitted by the user's browser will not be merged with other Google data.

For more information on data usage by Google, setting and objection options, please refer to the privacy policy of Google https://policies.google.com/privacy

 

Please take into account:
If you have consented, your data will also be transmitted to the USA and stored there. When personal data is transferred, there are risks under data protection law for the person whose data is transferred to the USA. U.S. authorities (especially intelligence services) are entitled to review rights (especially according to Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA 702) and Executive Order 12 333), without EU citizens being able to defend themselves. These U.S. legal bases allow data access for electronic communications services to non-U.S. citizens even without a court order and legal protection.

As far as judicial protection is concerned, EU citizens do not have the same legal possibilities (remedies) as US citizens to oppose the processing of personal data by US authorities. The United States carries out mass data processing without providing protection equivalent in substance to that guaranteed by Articles 7 (respect for private and family life) and 8 (protection of personal data) of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights. Since 2018, the Cloud Act has also existed, which allows U.S. authorities to access stored data of U.S. companies (and also their subsidiaries in Europe) that is not stored in the United States.

The use of Google Ads on this website

We would like to use the service "Google Ads" (formerly Google AdWords) on our website for marketing and optimization purposes. In particular, to place relevant and interesting ads for you, to improve campaign performance reports and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs. The provider of the service is Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as "Google").

The use of this service requires your prior consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a DSGVO. You can give your consent in the Consent banner (by clicking on "Allow cookies"). To revoke your consent with effect for the future, you can call up the Consent banner again via the "Allow cookies" button and click on "Decline". If you give your consent, the "Google Analytics" service will also be activated.

Google Ads enables us to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising media on external websites. This allows us to determine how successful individual advertising measures are. These advertising media are delivered by Google via so-called "AdServers". For this purpose, we use so-called AdServer cookies, which can be used to measure certain parameters for measuring success, such as the display of ads or clicks by users.

We ourselves do not collect or process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. Based on these evaluations, we can see which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising media; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information.

If you have a user account with Google and are registered, Google can assign the visit to your user account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that Google will obtain and store your IP address.

For more information on data usage by Google, on setting and objection options and on data protection, please visit the following Google websites:

Please take into account:
If you have consented, your data will also be transmitted to the USA and stored there. When personal data is transferred, there are risks under data protection law for the person whose data is transferred to the USA. U.S. authorities (especially intelligence services) are entitled to review rights (especially according to Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA 702) and Executive Order 12 333), without EU citizens being able to defend themselves. These U.S. legal bases allow data access for electronic communications services to non-U.S. citizens even without a court order and legal protection.

6. social media platforms
We maintain online presences on various social media platforms. If we have included links to our social media platforms on our website, these are pure links and not so-called (consent-requiring) plugins. You will be redirected to the websites of the respective social media platforms when you click on the links. However, we, as users of the various social media platforms, have no influence on the processing of your data by the providers of the social media platforms. It cannot be ruled out that the providers of the social media platforms use your data for their own purposes and/or pass it on to third parties. This may concern your habits, personal relationships, preferences and other aspects. We would also like to point out that some platforms may also process your data outside the European Union, which could make it more difficult or impede the enforcement of your rights. Only access our social media platforms if you are aware of these implications and are willing to accept the risks mentioned. Please refer to the individual data protection notice (or privacy policy) for each social media platform for the legal basis(s) for the processing of your personal data and the addressee for the assertion of your data subject rights. 6.1 Use of Meta Products (Facebook, Meta Business Manager, Instagram)

Facebook
We maintain a company page (fan page) on Facebook. As part of our website, a hyperlink to Facebook is indicated by a logo at the bottom of the website. After clicking on the logo, the Facebook website opens in a new tab of the browser. The following information also serves as data protection information for our online presence there. The joint responsible parties for the operation of the Fanpage site within the meaning of the DSGVO and other data protection regulations are: Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd. 4 Grand Canal Square Grand Canal Harbour Dublin 2 Ireland and Depenbrock GmbH & Co. Administration KG Blumenhorst 6 32351 Stemwede The following data will be transmitted, among others: For visitors who are not logged in/registered with Facebook: IP address: Facebook automatically determines the IP address of the user when a fan page is called up. Cookies: When you visit our fan page, technically necessary cookies are automatically set by Facebook on your IT system. We are currently only aware of the so-called datr cookie. According to Facebook, it is used to identify the web browser that establishes the connection to the Facebook page and plays a key role in protecting the social network from "malicious activities". The datr cookie is valid for two years, but can be deleted via the browser settings. For visitors who are registered and logged in to Facebook: IP address: Facebook also determines the IP address of the user for logged-in visitors (see above). Cookies: In this case, Facebook also sets a datr cookie (see above). If you are a Facebook member and are logged in with your Facebook profile at the same time as visiting our fan page, the c_user cookie is also set. Facebook links your visit to the company page with your personal user account. This enables Facebook to track your user behaviour. The use of cookies for meta products is beyond our control. The aforementioned cookies in their number and their description indicate our current state of knowledge in this regard. Please use Facebook's Consent Management System to set or change your privacy settings.

To our knowledge, Facebook currently processes users' data for the following purposes:
-> advertising, analysis, creation of personalised advertising
-> Creation of user profiles
-> market research
-> to improve their own products
-> to develop new products

When you access our Facebook fan page, Facebook automatically stores information in a log file that your browser transmits to Facebook. We expressly point out that we have no knowledge of the scope and content of the data collected by Facebook, nor of its processing and use or, if applicable, transmission to third parties by Facebook. Furthermore, Meta provides the operators of a Facebook fan page with the "Facebook Insights" tool, with which statistical information (= non-personal data) about the use of their pages can be retrieved. This includes, for example, the total number of page views and "likes", page activities, post interactions, video views, post reach, comments, shared content, replies, proportion of men and women, origin in terms of country and city, language and possibly other information.
If you have a Facebook account and do not want Facebook to collect data about you from our Fanpage and link it to your account data stored on Facebook, you must:
-> log out of Facebook before visiting our Fanpage,
-> then delete the cookies on your device
-> and close and restart your browser.
In this way, all Facebook information by which you can be identified will be deleted, according to Facebook. You can assert your data protection rights under the GDPR primarily with Meta Platforms Ireland Limited or also with us. In accordance with the ECJ ruling, the Fanpage is operated under a joint responsibility pursuant to Article 26 of the GDPR between Facebook and us (cf. Page Controller Addendum) at www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum). You must be logged in to Facebook in order to see the contents of the link. The primary responsibility under the GDPR for the processing of Insights Data lies with Meta and Meta complies with all obligations under the GDPR with regard to the processing of Insights Data. More information on Insights data can be found at the following link. (https://de-de.facebook.com/legal/terms/information_about_page_insights_data). Only Meta makes and implements decisions regarding the processing of Insights Data. We do not make any decisions regarding the processing of Insights data and all other information resulting from Art. 13 GDPR, including legal basis, identity of the controller and storage period of cookies on user devices. To the best of our current knowledge, Insights data is normally anonymised and aggregated into statistics so that no natural person can be identified. We do not require a legal basis to process this type of data. In exceptional cases, however, it may happen that a person is directly or indirectly identifiable. In this case, our processing of the insights data provided to us by Meta is carried out in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) of the DSGVO (based on our overriding legitimate interest). The purpose of the processing is to make our Facebook fan page more attractive for our users.

Meta Business Manager
We use the Meta Business Manager to create advertising, newsletter and applicant campaigns for the Facebook and Instagram websites. With campaigns, we can direct your interest to certain products and services of ours. Through your interaction with our newsletter campaign, you can sign up for our email newsletter. If we include required fields / details in the registration form (such as your email address) and this information is already available on Facebook, then this data is automatically provided by Facebook. You can, of course, change the content / information in the fields. Please note that Facebook may then store this information in addition to the data already available about you there. You will then receive an e-mail for the purpose of confirming your e-mail address according to the double opt procedure. The provision of your data is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a of the DSGVO. You can revoke your consent for the future and unsubscribe at any time. You will find a link for this in every email newsletter. If you interact with our campaign for applicants, data that may already be stored on Facebook will also be transferred to us. However, some fields will also request information that Facebook does not yet have. Please note that Facebook may store this additional information to the data already held by Facebook. The lawfulness for us to process your data is based on Art. 88 DSGVO (data processing in the employee context) in conjunction with Section 26 of the BDSG (for purposes of the employee relationship).

Instagram
We operate a public profile on Instagram, also called a feed. Within our website, a hyperlink to Instagram is indicated by a logo at the bottom of the website. After clicking on the logo, the Instagram website opens in a new tab of the browser. The following information also serves as data protection information for our online presence there. On Instagram, we share photos and videos to make you aware of current trends, products and services from us. Instagram is a product of Meta. We have no influence on the means and purposes of the processing of personal data by Meta, insofar as this is collected in connection with a visit to the Instagram website and our Instagram profile. Only the
Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd.
4 Grand Canal Square
Grand Canal Harbour
Dublin 2
Ireland

is to be named as the responsible party here. The Instagram privacy policy can be found at the following link www.facebook.com/help/instagram/519522125107875. In the event that we process your personal data, this is done on the basis of our legitimate interest (Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO), as we assume that your fundamental rights to the protection of your personal data do not prevail here.
Please also note:
Your data may also be transferred to the USA. When personal data is transferred, there are risks from a data protection perspective for the person whose data is transferred to the USA. US authorities (especially intelligence services) are entitled to review rights (especially according to Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA 702) and Executive Order 12 333) without EU citizens being able to defend themselves. These US legal bases allow data access to electronic communications services of non-US citizens even without a court order and legal protection. As far as judicial protection is concerned, EU citizens do not have the same legal possibilities (remedies) as US citizens to oppose the processing of personal data by US authorities. The United States carries out mass data processing without providing protection equivalent in substance to that guaranteed by Articles 7 (respect for private and family life) and 8 (protection of personal data) of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights. Since 2018, the Cloud Act has also existed, which allows US authorities to access stored data of American companies (and also their subsidiaries in Europe) that is not stored in the USA. Information on data protection at Meta and other products offered by Meta can be found at www.facebook.com/policy in Meta's data policy.

We have no influence on the means and purposes of the processing of personal data by YouTube (= Google), insofar as this data is collected in connection with a visit to the YouTube website and our YouTube channel. We would like to point out that you use YouTube and its functions on your own responsibility. In the event that we process your personal data, this is done on the basis of our legitimate interest (Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO), as we assume that your fundamental rights to the protection of your personal data do not prevail here. You can find Google's privacy policy under the following link: policies.google.com/privacy. If you have a Google account, Google may use the data collected when you visit our YouTube channel to play personalised advertising. If you do not wish this to happen, please adjust the "Advertising settings" in your account. Please also note: Your data may also be transferred to the USA. When personal data is transferred, there are risks from a data protection perspective for the person whose data is transferred to the USA. US authorities (especially intelligence services) are entitled to review rights (especially according to Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA 702) and Executive Order 12 333) without EU citizens being able to defend themselves.

We use the "LinkedIn" platform for the purpose of presenting our company there and drawing your attention to current trends, products and services from us via posts and videos. The following information also serves as data protection information for our online presence there. The services for the EU are provided by LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland. The headquarters of LinkedIn Inc. is located in Sunnyvale, California, USA. The company belongs to Microsoft. A hyperlink to LinkedIn is integrated into our website and identified by a logo. Clicking on the logo opens the LinkedIn website. When you access LinkedIn services, LinkedIn may receive personal data from you. Details on this can be found in LinkedIn's privacy policy at the following link: www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy LinkedIn's cookie policy can be found at the following link: www.linkedin.com/legal/cookie-policy As part of maintaining our basic company profile, we have limited access to statistical analyses from LinkedIn, e.g. on the number of page views of our online presence. LinkedIn provides this data in aggregated and anonymised form for certain periods of time, but does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about identifiable visitors to our company page. We have no influence on the means and purposes of the processing of personal data by LinkedIn, insofar as this is collected in connection with a visit to the LinkedIn website and our LinkedIn online presence. We would like to point out that you use LinkedIn and its functions on your own responsibility.

According to LinkedIn, the data centres for your members (who, like us, are registered with LinkedIn and have an account) are located in the USA. The USA is considered a third country without an adequacy decision, which therefore does not guarantee a level of data protection equivalent to the EU. The LinkedIn services require data to be transferred from the European Union (EU) to the United States of America (USA) and back. This also affects you as a visitor, insofar as you use services and certain functions of LinkedIn, e.g. when you make a comment on a post by us. The data transfer to the USA is based on standard contractual clauses. Information from LinkedIn on this can be found under the following links: www.linkedin.com/help/linkedin/answer/62533 de.linkedin.com/legal/l/dpa The LinkedIn user agreement (applies to members and visitors) can be found at the following link: https://de.linkedin.com/legal/user-agreement.
