14. Akismet Anti-Spam Check Our online offering uses the “Akismet” service, which is offered by Automattic, Inc. 132 Hawthorne Street San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. The use is based on our legitimate interests within the meaning of Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f) GDPR. With the help of this service, comments from real people are distinguished from spam comments. For this purpose, all comment information is sent to a server in the USA, where it is analyzed and stored for four days for comparison purposes. If a comment is classified as spam, the data will be stored beyond this time. This information includes the name entered, the email address, the IP address, the comment content, the referrer, information about the browser used and the computer system and the time of the entry.

Automattic is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thereby offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000CbqcAAC&status=Active).

Further information on Akismet's collection and use of data can be found in Automattic's data protection information: https://automattic.com/privacy/.

Users are welcome to use pseudonyms or forgo entering their name or email address. You can completely prevent the transfer of data by not using our comment system. That would be a shame, but unfortunately we don't see any other alternatives that work as effectively.

15. Collection of access data and log files
15.1. Based on our legitimate interests within the meaning of Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f of the GDPR, we collect data about every access to the server on which this service is located (so-called server log files). The access data includes the name of the website accessed, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider .

15.2. Log file information is stored for security reasons (e.g. to investigate acts of abuse or fraud) for a maximum of seven days and then deleted. Data whose further storage is necessary for evidentiary purposes is excluded from deletion until the respective incident has been finally clarified.

When accessing the respective networks and platforms, the terms and conditions and data processing guidelines of their respective operators apply.

16.2. Unless otherwise stated in our data protection declaration, we process users' data if they communicate with us on social networks and platforms, e.g. write posts on our online presence or send us messages.

17.1. Cookies are information that is transmitted from our web server or third-party web servers to users' web browsers and stored there for later retrieval. Cookies can be small files or other types of information storage.

17.2. We use “session cookies”, which are only stored for the duration of the current visit to our online presence (e.g. to enable the storage of your login status or the shopping cart function and thus the use of our online offering at all). A randomly generated unique identification number is stored in a session cookie, a so-called session ID. A cookie also contains information about its origin and the storage period. These cookies cannot store any other data. Session cookies are deleted when you have finished using our online offering and, for example, log out or close the browser.

17.3. Users will be informed about the use of cookies as part of pseudonymous reach measurement in the context of this data protection declaration.

17.4. If users do not want cookies to be stored on their computer, they are asked to deactivate the corresponding option in the system settings of their browser. Saved cookies can be deleted in the browser's system settings. The exclusion of cookies can lead to functional restrictions of this online offer.

17.5. You can opt out of the use of cookies for reach measurement and advertising purposes via the Network Advertising Initiative deactivation page (http://optout.networkadvertising.org/) and also the US website (http://www.aboutads.info/choices ) or the European website (http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/).

18.Google Analytics
18.1. Based on our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offering within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. GDPR), we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google LLC (“Google”). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about users' use of the online offering is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

18.2. Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thereby offers a guarantee that it will comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

18.3. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online offering by users, to compile reports on the activities within this online offering and to provide us with other services related to the use of this online offering and internet usage. Pseudonymous user profiles can be created from the processed data.

18.4. We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymization activated. This means that the user's IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states 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.

18.5. The IP address transmitted by the user's browser is not merged with other Google data. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; Users can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to their use of the online offering and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: https://tools .google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

18.6. Further information on data usage by Google, settings and objection options can be found on the Google websites: https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners (“Use of data by Google when you use websites or apps our partners"), https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads ("use of data for advertising purposes"), https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated ("manage information that Google uses to show you advertising ").

18.7. Otherwise, the personal data will be anonymized or deleted after 14 months.

19. Google Re/Marketing Services
19.1. Based on our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offering within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. GDPR), we use the marketing and remarketing services (in short “Google Marketing Services”. ”) of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, (“Google”).

19.2. Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thereby offers a guarantee that it will comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

19.3. The Google marketing services allow us to display advertisements for and on our website in a more targeted manner in order to only show users advertisements that potentially match their interests. For example, if a user is shown ads for products that they were interested in on other websites, this is referred to as “remarketing”. For these purposes, when you visit our and other websites on which Google marketing services are active, Google directly executes a code from Google and so-called (re)marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also known as “Web “Beacons”) are integrated into the website. With their help, an individual cookie, ie a small file, is stored on the user's device (comparable technologies can also be used instead of cookies). The cookies can be set by various domains, including google.com, doubleclick.net, invitemedia.com, admeld.com, googlesyndication.com or googleadservices.com. This file records which websites the user has visited, what content they are interested in and which offers they have clicked on, as well as technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, visiting time and other information about the use of the online offer. The user's IP address is also recorded, although we inform Google Analytics that the IP address is shortened within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area and only in exceptional cases Transferred to servers by Google in the USA and shortened there. The IP address is not merged with the user's data within other Google offerings. Google may also combine the information mentioned above with such information from other sources. When the user then visits other websites, ads tailored to their interests can be shown to them.

19.4. User data is processed pseudonymously as part of Google marketing services. This means that Google does not store and process the user's name or email address, for example, but rather processes the relevant cookie-related data within pseudonymous user profiles. This means that from Google's perspective, the advertisements are not managed and displayed for a specifically identified person, but for the cookie holder, regardless of who the cookie holder is. This does not apply if a user has expressly allowed Google to process the data without this pseudonymization. The information collected by Google Marketing Services about users is transmitted to Google and stored on Google's servers in the USA.

19.5. The Google marketing services we use include the online advertising program “Google AdWords”. In the case of Google AdWords, each AdWords customer receives a different “conversion cookie”. Cookies cannot therefore be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected using the cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. AdWords customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users.

19.6. We can also use the “Google Optimizer” service. Google Optimizer allows us to use so-called “A/B testing” to understand the impact of various changes to a website (e.g. changes to input fields, design, etc.). Cookies are stored on users’ devices for these testing purposes. Only pseudonymous user data is processed.

19.7. We can also use the “Google Tag Manager” to integrate and manage Google analysis and marketing services into our website.

19.8. Further information on Google's use of data for marketing purposes can be found on the overview page: https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads, Google's data protection declaration is available at https://policies.google.com/privacy.

19.9. If you would like to object to interest-based advertising through Google marketing services, you can use the settings and opt-out options provided by Google: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated.

20. Facebook, Custom Audiences and Facebook Marketing Services
20.1. Within our online offering, due to our legitimate interests in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offering and for these purposes, the so-called “Facebook pixel” from the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025 , USA, or if you are based in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”) is used.

20.2. Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thereby offers a guarantee that it will comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).

20.3. With the help of the Facebook pixel, Facebook is able to determine the visitors to our online offering as a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called “Facebook ads”). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to only show the Facebook ads we place to those Facebook users who have shown an interest in our online offering or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products) based on the information they visit websites) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called “Custom Audiences”). With the help of the Facebook pixel, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and do not appear annoying. With the help of the Facebook pixel, we can also track the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook advertisement (so-called “conversion”).

20.4. The processing of data by Facebook takes place within the framework of Facebook's data usage policy. Accordingly, general information on the display of Facebook ads can be found in Facebook's data usage policy: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php. You can find specific information and details about the Facebook Pixel and how it works in the Facebook help section: https://www.facebook.com/business/help/651294705016616.

20.5. You can object to the collection by the Facebook pixel and the use of your data to display Facebook ads. To set which types of advertisements are shown to you within Facebook, you can visit the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions there on the settings for usage-based advertising: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads. The settings are platform-independent, meaning they are applied to all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.

20.6. You can also use cookies to measure reach and for advertising purposes via the deactivation page of the Network Advertising Initiative (http://optout.networkadvertising.org/) and also the US website (http://www.aboutads.info/ choices) or the European website (http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/).

21. Facebook Social Plugins
21.1. Based on our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offering within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. GDPR), we use social plugins (“plugins”) from the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). The plugins can display interaction elements or content (e.g. videos, graphics or text posts) and can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on a blue tile, the terms “Like”, “Like” or a “thumbs up” sign ) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

21.2. Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thereby offers a guarantee that it will comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).

21.3. When a user accesses a function of this online offering that contains such a plugin, their device establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to the user's device and integrated into the online offering. User usage profiles can be created from the processed data. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore inform users according to our level of knowledge.

21.4. By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the online offering. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to their Facebook account. When users interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the Like button or leaving a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your device directly to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out and store their IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is stored in Germany.

21.5. The purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the related rights and setting options to protect the privacy of users can be found in Facebook's data protection information: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/ .

21.6. If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about them via this online offering and link it to their member data stored on Facebook, they must log out of Facebook and delete their cookies before using our online offering. Further settings and objections to the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads or via the US website http://www.aboutads.info /choices/ or the EU site http://www.youronlinechoices.com/. The settings are platform-independent, meaning they are applied to all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.

22. Jetpack (WordPress Stats)
22.1. Based on our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offering within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. GDPR), we use the Jetpack plugin (here the sub-function “Wordpress Stats”), which is a Tool for statistical evaluation of visitor access and from Automattic, Inc. 132 Hawthorne Street San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. Jetpack uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and that enable your use of the website to be analyzed.

22.2. Automattic is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thereby offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000CbqcAAC&status=Active).

22.3. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this online offering is stored on a server in the USA. User profiles can be created from the processed data, which are only used for analysis and not for advertising purposes. For more information, please see Automattic's privacy policy: automattic.com and information about Jetpack cookies: jetpack.com.

23. Newsletters
23.1. With the following information we inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, shipping and statistical evaluation procedures as well as your rights to object. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to its receipt and the procedures described.

23.2. Content of the newsletter: We only send newsletters, emails and other electronic notifications with promotional information (hereinafter “newsletter”) with the consent of the recipient or legal permission. If the contents are specifically described when registering for the newsletter, they are decisive for the user's consent. Our newsletters also contain information about our products, offers, promotions and our company.

23.3. Double opt-in and logging: Registration for our newsletter takes place using a so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after you register you will receive an email asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can log in with someone else's email address. Registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to provide evidence of the registration process in accordance with legal requirements. This includes storing the registration and confirmation times as well as the IP address. Changes to your data stored by the shipping service provider are also logged.

23.4. Shipping service provider: The newsletter is sent using “MailChimp”, a newsletter delivery platform from the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. You can view the shipping service provider’s privacy policy here: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/. The Rocket Science Group LLC d/b/a MailChimp is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thereby offers a guarantee of compliance with the European data protection level (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000TO6hAAG&status=Active).

23.5. Furthermore, the shipping service provider can, according to its own information, use this data in pseudonymous form, i.e. without assigning it to a user, to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimize the shipping and presentation of the newsletter or for statistical purposes in order to determine which countries the recipients come from. However, the shipping service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them themselves or to pass them on to third parties.

23.6. Registration data: To register for the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide your email address. Optionally, we ask you to provide a name so that you can be addressed personally in the newsletter.

23.7. Measuring success – The newsletters contain a so-called “web beacon”, ie a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the shipping service provider’s server when the newsletter is opened. As part of this retrieval, technical information is initially collected, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and the time of retrieval. This information is used to technically improve the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior based on their access locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times. The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our intention nor that of the shipping service provider to monitor individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.

23.8. Germany: The sending of the newsletter and the measurement of success are based on the consent of the recipient in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a, Art. 7 GDPR in conjunction with Section 7 Para § 7 Paragraph 3 UWG.

23.9. The registration process is logged on the basis of our legitimate interests in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f of the GDPR and serves to provide proof of consent to receive the newsletter.

10/23 Termination/Revocation – Newsletter recipients can terminate receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke their consent. You will find a link to unsubscribe from the newsletter at the end of each newsletter. This means that your consent to the performance measurement expires at the same time. Unfortunately, it is not possible to revoke the success measurement separately; in this case, the entire newsletter subscription must be canceled. When you unsubscribe from the newsletter, the personal data will be deleted unless their retention is legally required or justified, in which case their processing will only be limited to these exceptional purposes. In particular, we can store unsubscribed email addresses for up to three years based on our legitimate interests before deleting them for the purpose of sending newsletters in order to be able to prove that consent was previously given. The processing of this data is limited to the purpose of possible defense against claims. An individual request for deletion is possible at any time, provided that the previous existence of consent is confirmed at the same time.

24. Integration of third-party services and content
24.1.

GDPR) in order to improve their content and To integrate services such as videos or fonts (hereinafter referred to as “content”). This always assumes that the third party providers of this content are aware of the user's IP address, as without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to their browser.

The “pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information can also be stored in cookies on the user's device and can contain, among other things, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, visiting time and other information about the use of our online offering, as well as can be linked to such information from other sources.

Data protection for applications and the application process We process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application process for a position in our company or with one of our customers as part of an RPO (recruitment outsourcing process). Processing can also take place electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits relevant application documents to us electronically, for example by email or via a web form on the website. If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with legal regulations. If our customer concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the data will be deleted within the legally valid period. If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant, the application documents will also be deleted within the legally valid deadline.
