2. Processing of data
Personal data is information about your identity. This includes, for example, information such as name, address, telephone number, e-mail address.

In general, you can visit our website without leaving any personal data, e.g. if you just want to find out more about our products and call up the relevant pages. The accesses made to our homepage and each time a file stored on the homepage is called up are logged. The storage serves internal system-related and statistical purposes. The following are logged: browser type / version, operating system used, referrer URL (the previously visited page), host name of the accessing computer (IP address), time of the server request. However, no personal data is transmitted on your part and this information is stored separately from any personal data that may be transmitted. Additionally, the IP addresses of the requesting computers are logged.

In certain cases, however, we need your name and address as well as other information so that we can provide the requested services. This additional personal data is only recorded and stored if you provide this information voluntarily, for example in the context of an inquiry, registration, application as an employee or potential supplier or when placing orders and processing them.

3. Purposes and legal bases
If you provide us with personal data, we will only use it to answer your inquiries (the legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a, b or f GDPR) and to process projects (the legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a, b or f GDPR), in relation to advertising measures towards you (the legal basis for this is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR), in order to provide you with access to certain information or offers or to use information and communication systems (The legal basis here is Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. a, b or f GDPR) and within the framework of legal requirements (the legal basis here is Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. c GDPR).
In those cases in which Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit.
We will only collect, process and use the personal data you provide online for the purposes that have been communicated to you. Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties or otherwise transmitted if this is necessary for the purpose of carrying out the activities mentioned here, e.g. if service providers are involved or if you have previously consented to the disclosure. These third parties are not allowed to use the data for any other purpose.
Of course, we respect it if you do not want to give us your personal data to support our customer relationship (especially for direct marketing or for market research purposes).
We only disclose personal data about customers or suppliers if we are legally obliged to do so (the legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c GDPR), or if we are obliged to do so by a court decision (the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c or f GDPR) or if the disclosure is necessary to enforce or protect our general terms and conditions or other agreements (the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c or f GDPR). This applies accordingly with regard to the processing of the data.
The data is not disclosed for economic purposes.
Our employees and the service companies commissioned by us are bound by us to secrecy and to comply with the provisions of the current data protection laws. Access to personal data by our employees is limited to those employees who need the respective data due to their professional tasks

7. Cookies
a) General
In order to make visiting our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on various pages. These are small text files that are stored on your device. Some of the cookies we use are deleted again after the end of the browser session, i.e. after you close your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your device and enable us or our partner companies to recognize your browser on your next visit (persistent cookies). We use cookies to personalize content and advertisements and to analyze access to our website. We also share information about your use of our website with our partners for social media, advertising and analysis. You can find details on this, for example, at: http://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners/.
b) Legal basis
The legal basis for the use of cookies is your consent. We only use one or more cookies if you have consented to the use of cookies in the cookie pop-up that appears when you visit our website. The legal basis is then Art. 6 Paragraph 6 1 lit. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future.

8. Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).
Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and enable your use of the website to be analyzed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use the stored information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity for the website operator and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage.
Google may also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Under no circumstances will Google associate your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. By using this website, you consent to the processing of the data collected about you by Google in the manner described above and for the purpose set out above.
You can object to the data collection at any time with effect for the future by using the deactivation add-on for browsers from Google Analytics at tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Deactivate Google Analytics
We would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp ()”. As a result, IP addresses are only stored in anonymized form; direct personal reference in connection with the stored data is therefore excluded.

9. Google Tag Manager
This website uses the Google Tag Manager. This service allows website tags to be managed via an interface. The Google Tool Manager only implements tags. This means: no cookies are used and no personal data is recorded. The Google Tool Manager triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. However, the Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been carried out at the domain or cookie level, it will remain in effect for all tracking tags, insofar as they are implemented with the Google Tag Manager.

10. Facebook
We use the “Website Custom Audiences” pixel of the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA, on our website. Here, the so-called Facebook pixels are integrated on our pages. The integration of the Facebook pixel enables us to place and optimize targeted campaigns and to measure the reach of our marketing measures. This represents a legitimate interest in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. As a result, Facebook receives the information that our website has been visited from your IP address.
If you are a Facebook member, Facebook can link this information to your Facebook profile and use it for the targeted display of Facebook ads, provided you have not objected to this in the data protection settings of your Facebook profile.
We would like to point out that, as the provider of this website, we have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or their use by Facebook. We can only select which segments of Facebook users (such as age, interests) our advertising should be displayed. We use one of two Custom Audiences working methods in which no data records, in particular no e-mail addresses of our users – neither encrypted nor unencrypted – are transmitted to Facebook. You can find more information on this in Facebook’s data protection declaration at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
