Google Analytics

This website uses features provided by the online analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and allow us to analyse how you are using our website. The information generated by cookies about your use of the website is generally sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. IP addresses are anonymised before being processed.

reCAPTCHA

To protect your requests sent via an online form, we use the reCAPTCHA service provided by Google Inc. (Google). This check is used to distinguish whether a human has input the data or whether the website is being misused by an automated, machine-based process. 

The check includes sending your IP address to Google. If necessary, additional data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service may also be sent. For this purpose, the information you enter is transmitted to Google, where it will be used further. However, Google shortens your IP address within member states of the European Union or other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before use. Only in exceptional cases will a complete IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google uses this information on behalf of the operator of this website in order to evaluate your use of the website. The IP address transmitted by your browser for the purposes of reCAPTCHA is not consolidated with other data by Google. Processing of this data is subject to the Google-specific privacy policy. For more information about the Google privacy policy, please visit: https://policies.google.com/privacy


Google Maps

This site uses Google Maps via an API. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. In order to use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is generally sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this website cannot influence the transmission of this data.

For more information on how Google processes your user data, please refer to Google's privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy


SSL encryption

This website uses SSL encryption for security purposes and in order to ensure that confidential information is transmitted securely, for example the requests sent to us as a website operator. You can identify an encrypted connection as the web address starts with "https://" rather than "http://" and a padlock symbol is displayed in the address bar. In principle, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties if SSL encryption is enabled.


Processing data (customer and contract data)

We collect, process and use personal data only where this is required for the purposes of establishing, forming the content of or modifying a contract or legal relationship (existing data). If personal data is processed, it will be stored by us only as long as justified for the purpose of processing that data. We cannot stipulate a specific timeframe for which the data will be stored, as, for example, the time taken to execute and fulfil a contact can vary. As subsequent claims may arise from a contract in the future (e.g. in the event of defects), your data will be stored until the right of recourse for any possible subsequent claims has elapsed. 

We only collect, process and use personal data when you make use of our website (usage data) to the extent necessary to enable you to use the service or for invoicing.


Transmitting data upon the conclusion of a contract for services and digital content

We transmit personal data to third parties only if this is necessary in the context of executing the contract, for example to the credit institution responsible for processing payment.

We will not transmit your data any further unless you have expressly consented to this. We will not pass on your data to third parties, for example for the purposes of advertising, without your express consent.


Further information
We value your trust. Therefore, we are always happy to answer any questions you have regarding the processing of your personal data. If you have any questions which are not answered by this privacy policy or if you wish to receive more detailed information regarding one of the points herein, please do not hesitate to contact us or our Data Protection Officer:
