General Information

Pursuant to our statutory obligations, we would like to inform you about the collection and use of your personal data.

When you use our website, personal data about you will be collected. This may happen by you entering the data yourself, for example your e-mail address. But our system also collects your data automatically, for example whenever you visit our website. This happens irrespective of the device or the software that you use to visit our website.

All data that you enter in our app is provided voluntarily; there are no disadvantages to you if you do not provide data. But without certain data, we are unable to provide services or to conclude contracts. Whenever such information is necessary, we will point it out to you.

On this website, the user’s personal data is only collected within the framework of the existing data-protection law, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The legal terms used in the text are defined in Art. 4 of the GDPR.

The GDPR allows data processing in three cases in particular:

  • in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (a) and 7 GDPR, when you have consented to us processing your data; in this Privacy Policy and in the cases of consent pursuant to Art. 4 no. 11 GDPR, we will inform you in detail and each time for what purposes and under what circumstances your data will be processed by us;
  • in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR, when processing your personal data is necessary for negotiating, concluding or performing a contract;
  • in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, if the balancing of interests leads to the conclusion that the processing is necessary to protect our legitimate interests; this means in particular our interests to analyse, optimise and secure the offers on our website – meaning primarily the analysis of user behaviour, setting up profiles for advertisement purposes and storage of access data as well as the use of third-party providers.

 

Inventory Data

We collect inventory data as far as it is necessary to establish, negotiate or amend a contract (including one without remuneration) between us and the user. This can be: customer data (for example name, address), contact data (for example e-mail address, phone number), service data (for example services ordered, duration, payment). Upon establishing the user relationship, we will ask you for this data (for example name, address and e-mail address) and will also tell you which of the information is required to establish the user relationship.

Usage Data

We also collect usage data to allow users to use the services on our website. These may consist of: usage information (for example visited websites or parts, duration of visit, interest in services), content data (for example data, text, images, sounds, videos entered or uploaded by you), meta data (for example identity of your device, location, IP address).

We will only combine usage data if and insofar as it is necessary for billing purposes. Otherwise, we will only put together usage data pseudonymously and only insofar as you have not objected. You may send this objection to the address indicated in the “About Us” section or the responsible authority indicated in this Privacy Policy at any time.

The legal basis for this data processing are our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR in analysing the website and your use, possibly also the statutory permission to store data as part of the negotiation of a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR.

Furthermore, our provider stores information, the so-called server log files, each time the website is used; this is information which is automatically transferred by your browser. In detail, this data consists of:

  • your IP address
  • type and version of your browser
  • host name
  • time of visit
  • the page from which you came to our page
  • name of the page opened
  • exact time of usage as well as
  • the amount of data transferred


This data will only be used for statistical purposes and do not allow us to identify you as a user.

 

Advertisements

Before sending you advertisements, we will ask for your explicit consent pursuant to Art. 4 no. 11 GDPR, except in cases of advertisements for similar products to the one you already acquired. This will happen in particular when you grant us consent to mail our newsletter or when you fill out a contact form.

You may withdraw your consent at any time in accordance with the subsequent section “Consent”.

INSOFAR AS WE USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR DIRECT MARKETING, YOU MAY ALSO OBJECT TO THE USE OF YOUR DATA FOR THAT PURPOSE AT ANY TIME. THIS MAY BE DONE THROUGH ANY OF OUR MEANS OF CONTACT, PARTICULARLY BY E-MAIL TO THE E-MAIL ADDRESS LISTED IN THE “LEGAL NOTICE” SECTION WITHOUT ANY FORMAL REQUIREMENTS. WE WILL THEN NO LONGER USE YOUR DATA FOR DIRECT MARKETING.

 

First Contact through Electronic Request

If you contact us in electronic form (for example by mail, fax, phone, messenger, etc.), we store and process the data which you have given us (for example name, contact information, content of the request). This is based on our legitimate interest in an effective communication with customers in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR and, as far as it concerns a request to enter into or to perform a contract, also with Article 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR.
We will only pass on this data to third parties as far as required for the performance of the contract (in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR), by the overwhelming interest in effective services (in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR) or based on your consent (in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR) or if there is another legal permission or obligation.
You may ask us at any time and without any cost to provide information about the purpose of the processing, the origin and the recipient, if any, of your data. You may also request that we correct, delete or limit the processing of your personal data. You may object against the (further) processing of your data at any time and you have a right for the data to be made transferable as well as the right to file a complaint with the competent supervisory agency.
In general, your data will only remain stored as long as required by the purpose of the respective data processing. A longer storage is an option, in particular when required in order to pursue our rights, for other legitimate interests of ours or when there is a statutory duty to keep the data longer (for example record-keeping under tax law, statute of limitations).

Consent

Whenever we ask you for your consent for the processing of your data, we will inform you in clear language and in an easily accessible way about the cases for which you will be granting your consent. Any consent that we ask you for is voluntary. Any advantage that you wish to gain by granting consent is also available without consent; simply ask us.

Regarding any consent, you have the right to revoke any consent given to us for the processing of your personal data at any time. You just need to contact us without any particular formal requirement, for example through our contact form, an e-mail to the e-mail address indicated in the “About Us” section or a link to unsubscribe (if offered by us). Your withdrawal has no effect on the legality of the data processing carried out up to that point.

Storage Period

Generally, your data will only remain stored as long as required by the purpose of the respective data processing. Storage beyond that is possible in particular if it is still required for pursuing our rights or for other legitimate interests of ours.
For your inventory data which were necessary to perform a contract (including one without remuneration), this means that we store this data until the complete performance or termination of the contractual relationship plus the limitation period (which is generally 2 or 3 years) plus an adequate extra time for potential interruptions of the limitation period.
For your usage data which was collected in the course of your use of the website, this means that we will store it only for the time still required for the proper functionality of our website and as long as we still have a legitimate interest. Statistical information will be primarily stored by us in pseudonymous form.
Beyond that, we still store your data for as long as we are required to do so by law. This concerns in particular the tax-law requirements to keep records, usually for 6 or even 10 years.

Upon opening the website, we have asked you to consent to the storing of certain cookies which will be placed while you visit our website. Based on your consent pursuant to Art 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR, our website thus uses cookies, so that our offer can be used in a better, more effective and more secure way.
Cookies are text files that are stored on your computer and which store certain data about your user behavior on our page, so that certain features or offers can be made available to you based on your previous use. These can be “session cookies”, which are automatically deleted when you leave our website. Other cookies are stored on your computer permanently until you delete them. That allows us to recognize your browser when you visit our website again and to provide you with features or offers according to your previous usage.

Your browser allows you to prevent the use of cookies in general or in specific cases. Please check the instructions for your browser to find out more about this. You can also delete cookies following these instructions which we have listed for you:

Users‘ Rights

You may request us anytime to provide information about the personal data stored about you free of charge. To avoid misuse, this will require personal identification.

Deletion, Correction, Limitation

You may at any time demand from us that we correct (or complete) incorrect data as well as a limitation of the processing of data or deletion of your data. This applies in particular if the reason for processing the data is no longer valid, if a required consent has been revoked and there is no other legal basis or if our data processing is unlawful. We will then correct, block or even delete your personal data without delay as far as permitted by law.

Objection

The right to object to advertisement is governed by our text regarding consent:


Regarding any consent, you have the right to revoke any consent given to us for the processing of your personal data at any time. You just need to contact us without any particular formal requirement, for example through our contact form, an e-mail to the e-mail address indicated in the “About Us” section or a link to unsubscribe (if offered by us). Your withdrawal has no effect on the legality of the data processing carried out up to that point.

 

Data Transfer

You may request us to transfer the data stored about you in machine-readable form.

Complaint

If you feel that our data processing has violated any of your rights, you may file a complaint with the competent regulatory agency (here you find a list of the agencies).

Changes to the Privacy Policy

If and when factual or legal reasons will compel us to amend the Privacy Policy, we will update this page accordingly. This will not change the consent provided by the user.

Data Entry

Encryption of Data Entry

When you enter data on our website, whether in a contact form, during the registration process, when you log in or for payment purposes, the website, where you enter the data, is encrypted. Thus, third parties can not read what you enter. You will recognise the encryption by the lock symbol in your browser and by the URL beginning with “https“ instead of “http“.

Contact Forms

General contact form

When you fill out a contact form or when you send us an e-mail or another electronic message, your information will be stored for the processing of the request, for possible follow-up questions or for other related questions and will only be used to follow up with the request.

Your data will be transferred in an encrypted manner, preventing third parties from reading your data while it is being entered.

Basis for this storage is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR, which you grant us by filling in the contact form or by your other requests. You may revoke this consent at any time, you just need to contact us without any particular formal requirement (for example in the contact form or by e-mail). This withdrawal has no effect on the legality of the data processing that has occurred up to that point.

Your data remains stored for as long as the processing of the request requires, in particular as long as the storage is still necessary to perform the contract, to pursue our rights or for our other legitimate interests or we are compelled by law to keep your data stored (for example based on tax-law requirements to maintain files).

Further information can be found in LinkedIn's privacy policy at: https://www.LinkedIn.com/legal/privacy-policy?_l=de_DE.

Social Media Videos

Vimeo (Two Klick)

Based on our legitimate interest in a technologically perfect online offering and its design and optimisation in an economically efficient manner pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR we use Vimeo, a service provided by Vimeo, Inc., 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011 in order to embed videos.
To protect your data, we have installed a two-click solution. That way, Vimeo won't learn about your visit once you access our website, but only once you actually click the button. If you confirm the plugin while being logged in at Vimeo, Vimeo may attribute your use to your user account.

That way, your data will be transferred to the USA, but Vimeo is registered with Privacy Shield and must adhere to the EU data protection rules.

The collection and use of your data which is possibly carried out by Vimeo after clicking on the link is beyond our knowledge or control. You may find further information in Vimeo's privacy policy at

Google

Google Analytics

Based on our legitimate interest in a technologically perfect online offering and its design and optimisation in an economically efficient manner pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, we use the Google Analytics tool provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland. This allows to analyse the use of websites and to put together pseudonymous profiles of users based on the data. In order to do this, Google applies different technologies, among them also storing cookies on your computer. These store information about the use of our page, which we will use to improve our offers.

The data collected by Google may be transferred by Google to countries outside of the EU, in particular to the USA. Google has subjected itself to the Privacy Shield Framework

We have taken additional precautions to ensure the appropriate protection of your data as far as possible. Before transferring it to Google, we anonymize your IP address. This is achieved by activating the Anonymizelp() feature in the tracking code of Google Analytics.

We have also concluded a contract with Google about the processing of data, according to which Google will not combine your data with other data collected by Google in order to find out your identity.

If this should not be sufficient for you, you can also use the link http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout

To protect your data, we have installed a two-click solution. That way, Google won't learn about your visit once you access our website, but only once you actually use Google Maps.

By using Google Maps, particularly through active Java scripts, information about your use of this website (including your IP address) may be transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and can be stored there. Google has subjected itself to the Privacy Shield framework. Further information about the use of your data by Google can be found in the privacy policy of Google at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ .

If you don't want your data to be transmitted, you can deactivate the execution of Java scripts in your browser or install a blocker, which will prevent the execution of Java scripts (e.g. https://noscript.net). But we do want to point out that this may impede the use of our or other websites.

HubSpot offers the following features:
Hosting
CMS (Content Management System)
Contact Forms
Newsletter Software
Tracking and Analysis
CRM (Customer Relation Management)
Chat Software
Of these, we use the following features:

HubSpot Hosting / CMS / CMR

Based on our legitimate interest in a technologically perfect online offering and its design and optimization in an economically efficient manner, we use HubSpot for hosting our website. As any other hosting service, HubSpot collects usage data. These are identified and non-identifiable data on the occasion of you accessing our website. These will either be made available to HubSpot or automatically collected when you use HubSpot services (“non-personal data”).

Non-personal data does not allow HubSpot to find out the origin of the data. Non-personal data are technical information and usage information, for example the browsing and click stream behavior of visitors and users of services, session heat maps and scrolls as well as non-identifiable data about the user's or visitor's used device, operating system, browser, screen resolution, language and keyboard settings, internet provider, referral and exit pages, date/time stamp, etc.

As a hosting service, HubSpot also collects data that can identify a person with manageable effort (“personal data”). This personal data generally consists of all data that you enter when using the website. These can be contact data (for example e-mail address or phone number), invoice data (name, billing address, payment method and bank connection), data regarding a browser or user session (IP address, geographic location and/or unique identification of the user's device), data regarding connected accounts of third parties (for example e-mail address or user name for a connected PayPal, Google or Facebook account), scanned identity papers sent to us (for example ID card, driving license, passport or company registration documents), and any other personal data.

HubSpot also undertakes physical, electronic and procedural security measures to protect your personal data. HubSpot has more information about this here: https://legal.hubspot.com/data-privacy?__hstc=230861184.05b1c26761c5da0b5d0ce9ba8c0bc3af.1496406325284.1496406325284.1496406325284.1&__hssc=230861184.1.1496406325285&__hsfp=80863953

Based on contractual data, we use HubSpot for our Customer Relation Management System. Here, we store all data, which you have conveyed to us when entering into a contract, in particular your name, your contact information, payment information and products purchased, if applicable. We will keep this data stored as long as required for the performance of the contract (in particular the warranty period) or as long as we are required by law to keep your data stored (for example the data required for taxation).

HubSpot Contact Form

Based on our legitimate interest in efficient communication with our customers and based on contractual data, we also use HubSpot for contact forms on our website. HubSpot receives all data that you enter in our forms and also collects usage data. For more details, we refer you to our general information about contact forms.

HubSpot Newsletter

Based on our legitimate interest in efficient communication with our customers, we use HubSpot for our newsletter and for sending e-mails. If you subscribe to the newsletter offered on our page, we will instruct you in detail about the information you will receive, which of your data will be stored and for what the data will be used. We will not pass on your data to third parties and will only use it to mail the newsletter.

We will only send you the newsletter if you have given us your consent before. To that purpose, we will send you an e-mail with a link and more information, and we will ask for your consent. By clicking on that link, you will consent to receiving the newsletter and advertisement from us.

The legal basis for the storage is your consent in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR, which you have given us when you registered for the newsletter. You may withdraw this consent at any time without any further formal requirements (for example through the contact form or by e-mail or by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link included in each e-mail). This withdrawal of consent has no effect on the legality of the data processing carried out up to that point.

As we are required by law to record your consent with the so-called double opt-in, your subscription of the newsletter, the mailing of our consent-seeking e-mail and your consent by clicking on the link as well as the location, time and your IP address will be recorded and stored.

The data used by HubSpot include a “web-beacon”, which informs HubSpot when you open the newsletter and/or click on a link therein. As part of that procedure, HubSpot will receive information about your browser, your location and your IP address. This information will be used to optimize our communication with you.

Our newsletter provider also uses this data, but only in pseudonymous form (without allowing your identification) for purposes of analysis and to optimize their services. They will never use your data to contact you.

Your data will remain stored as long as you are on our e-mailing list, as long as required to pursue our rights, for other legitimate interests of ours or as long as we are required by law to keep your data stored.

HubSpot Tracking

Based on our legitimate interest in a technologically perfect online offering and its design and optimization in an economically efficient manner, we use HubSpot to analyze our website.

HubSpot uses certain technologies for analysis, especially cookies, which will be stored on your computer. These store information about the use of our page, which we use to improve our offers. The data will be collected by HubSpot pseudonymously and will not be aggregated with other personal data about you. We are not able to use it to identify you as a visitor of our website.

If you want to deactivate the tracking through HubSpot, please click here: Opt Out.

HubSpot Chat

Based on our legitimate interest in communicating with our customers in an economic and efficient manner, we use HubSpot for the live chat on our page. Once the HubSpot chat is opened, HubSpot will at first and temporarily collect the IP address in order to determine the country where the chat originates from. This allows us to offer customer service tailored to the visitor's requirements. The IP address is collected for that purpose alone and will not be stored by HubSpot permanently.

If you do not want the data to be transmitted to HubSpot, you can prevent HubSpot from placing cookies by changing the settings in your browser. We refer you to our general information about cookies in this privacy policy.

HubSpot also stores the communication from the chats. That way, you don't need to make long explanations in your request. If you don't want to use this feature, you can let us know through any of the means of contact listed above. We will then immediately delete any stored chats. We will also delete them after your request will have been taken care of, unless we need to keep it to pursue our rights or unless the chat led to the negotiation or conclusion of a contract, in which case we may (have to) store this data as contractual data.

Various

Zapier

Based on our legitimate interest in a technologically perfect online offering and its design and optimisation in an economically efficient manner pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, we use Zapier, a service provided by Zapier Inc., 548 Market St #62411, San Francisco, California 94104, USA, in order to integrate different databases and tools. In the course of this, your customer information (but not your payment information) will be transmitted to Zapier.

Thus, your data is forwarded to the USA, but Zapier is registered with Privacy Shield and obligated to respect the EU data protection rules.

For the handling of your data at Zapier, we refer you to the Privacy Policy of Zapier at https://zapier.com/privacy/.

Our Social Media Fan Page(s) - General Information

Beside our website, we also use fan page(s) on social media platforms. Above, we have already informed you about the data processing on our website and we have in particular made sure that the fact alone that you access our website is not yet forwarded to the social media platform. Following the ECJ ruling dated 5 June 2018 about social media presences, we want to inform you about the data processing during your visit to our social media fan page(s):

On the basis of our legitimate interest in a timely customer communication pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR as well as for advertising and public relations purposes, we present ourselves and our offers on social media fan page(s).

Our social media fan page(s) usually can be accessed online independently of you having a user account with the relevant platform or not. But in either case, your data will be processed by the social media platform.

Each time the social media platform is accessed, your IP address will be collected and stored. Usually, a cookie will also be placed on your page, which will save your visit and further data about your visit to the social media platform.

If you are logged in with the social media platform, your visit will also be spotted by a cookie or through other technological means and will be attributed to your user account. Thus, the social media platform is usually able to analyse your user behaviour. In this process, a user profile with your interests is generated, which the social media platform will use to provide you with a user experience tailored to your interests, in particular advertisement tailored to your interests within and outside of the social media platform – even across different devices, if applicable. Your data may also be used for market research. For the details, we refer you to the following privacy policies of the social media platform(s) used by us.

We can usually also use the data of the social media platform in order to allow you to use our fan page in accordance with your interests or to approach you with advertising.

When you interact with our fan page and if you are logged in with the relevant social media platform, according to the social media page's terms of use, we can usually also recognise your user profile and see your content.
If you do not want this, we point you to our explanations about cookies above, with general information about cookies and their deactivation. There, we have laid out in general terms how you can prevent or limit cookies being stored on your devices. Further information about the respective social media platform can be found hereinafter.

According to the aforementioned ECJ ruling dated 5 June 2018, we are always jointly responsible for our social media fan page(s) together with the relevant social media platform. This means that you may also exercise your general rights, which we have listed in detail above under the heading “Users' Rights”, against us. To that purpose, we refer you to our contact details at the beginning of this Privacy Policy. Please keep in mind, though, that we have no conclusive knowledge of the exact scope of the processing of your data by the social media platform and have even less influence on it. Therefore, we kindly ask you to contact the relevant social media platform in the first place regarding your rights.

We generally leave your data on the social media platform and do not import it onto our server. But if that should occur, our general information regarding the storage period will apply.

Further information about the processing of your data and the storage period on the social media platform can be found in the respective privacy policy of the social media platform, which we have listed hereinafter.
