Social media platforms

We offer you online content via various social media platforms in order to provide you with information and enter into contact with you.
We have no influence over the processing of personal data by the respective platform operator. In general, when you visit our social media offerings, the platform operator will save cookies in your browser in which your usage behaviour or interests are saved for market research and advertising purposes. Platform operators use the usage profiles created in this manner to show you personalised advertisements.

This data processing can also affect persons who are not registered as users of the respective social media platform. Your data may be processed outside the European Union. However, when selecting social media platforms, we ensure that the operators commit to complying with the EU data protection standards.
The processing of your personal data when visiting one of our social media offerings is performed on the basis of our legitimate interest in a diverse external image of our company and in using an effective means for informing and communicating with you.

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. You may also have granted a platform operator consent to process data; in this case, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

Google Analytics and Conversion Tracking

This website uses Google Analytics. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will evaluate your use of the website in order to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the internet.
Since the Hamburg Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information agreed with Google on the basis of the resolution of the Düsseldorf Circle on the data protection-compliant design of analysis procedures for measuring the range of Internet offerings, it is possible to use Google Analytics in a data protection-compliant and objection-free manner under certain conditions. It goes without saying that we comply with these conditions. In particular, we would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” in order to ensure anonymous recording of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). Your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google. Further information on terms of use and data protection can be found at https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/.

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. 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. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser add-on. If you click here, an opt-out cookie will be set, which prevents the future collection of your data when you visit this website: Disable Google Analytics.
In addition, we use Google Conversion Tracking in connection with Google Analytics. This enables us to record the behaviour of our website visitors. For example, it shows us how many PDF’s have been downloaded from our website or how often the contact form has been filled out. It also shows us how many clicks on advertisements from external sources (AdWords, LinkedIn, Xing, Bing) have led to our website.
