If you contact us using the contact form on our website or by email, we will store the data you provide (first name, last name, company, email address, address) for up to six months, for the purposes of processing your enquiry and any further communications. We will not share your data without your consent.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. In accordance with the GDPR, we have concluded a corresponding data processing agreement with the provider.

COOKIES & GOOGLE ANALYTICS

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”).

Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files placed on your device, to help facilitate analysis of how you use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) is, as a rule, transmitted to and stored by Google on a server in the United States.

However, due to IP anonymisation activated on this website, your IP address is truncated by Google within member states of the European Union, or other contracting parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, before processing. IP anonymisation is activated on this website.

On behalf of the operator of this website Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. The IP address transmitted to Google by your browser as a result of use of Google Analytics will not be associated with other data held by Google. Google will not, under any circumstances, associate your IP address with other data held by Google.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above. You may also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie in relation to your use of this website (including your IP address), the transfer of such data to Google, and the processing of such data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under this link.

IP ANONYMISATION

We have activated IP anonymisation on this website. This means your IP address is truncated by Google within member states of the European Union, or other signatories of the Agreement on the European Economic Area, before processing. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

The relationship with the web analytics provider is based on adequacy decision C(2016) 4176 of the European Commission (EU-US Privacy Shield framework).

Data processing is carried out on the basis of section 96(3) TKG and Article 6(1)(a) GDPR (consent) and/or Article 6(1)(f) GDPR (legitimate interest).

Our legitimate interest in the meaning of the GDPR is improvement of our service and website. As our users’ privacy is important to us, user data are pseudonymised.

USE OF GOOGLE ADWORDS

To promote our website, we also use the Google Adwords advertising tool. As part of this, we use conversion tracking provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). If you have reached our website via an ad placed by Google, Google Adwords sets a cookie on your device. Cookies are small text files that your web browser stores on your device. These “conversion cookies” expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages on our website before the conversion cookie has expired, both we and Google can see that a specific user has clicked on an ad placed by Google and been redirected to the page.

The information collected using conversion cookies helps Google to compile visitor statistics for our website. These statistics tell us the total number of users who have clicked on our ad, and which pages on our website have subsequently been accessed by each user. However, neither we nor any other Google Adwords customers receive any information that personally identifies users.

You can prevent the installation of conversion cookies by adjusting your browser settings, for example by deactivating automatic installation of cookies in general, or specifically blocking cookies from the googleadservices.com domain.
