8. Cookies

In addition to the data mentioned under 3., cookies are stored on your computer when you use our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard disk, assigned to the browser you are using, and through which certain information flows to the site that sets the cookies (here by us). Cookies cannot execute programs or transfer viruses to your computer. They serve to make the Internet offer altogether more user-friendly and effective.

Use of cookies:

This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and function of which are explained below:

(1) Transient cookies

Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. This includes in particular the session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the shared session. This enables the computer to be recognised when you return to our website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.

(2) Persistent cookies

Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.

(3) Browser settings

You can configure your browser settings according to your preferences and, for example, refuse to accept third-party cookies or reject all cookies. Please note that you may not be able to use all the features of this website.

(4) Anti Spam Cookies

The AntiSpam cookies used are not collected by the browser itself, but by its plug-in called Akismet. They collect information (user IP address, user agent, referrer, website URL and the comment itself) about visitors who leave comments on websites.

  1.  social media plug-ins

(1) We currently use the following social media plug-ins: Facebook, Xing and LinkedIn. We use the so-called two-click solution. If you visit our site, no personal data will be passed on to the providers of the plug-ins. You can recognize the provider of the plug-in by the initial letter or logo of the provider on the box. We give you the opportunity to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only if you click on the marked box and thereby activate it, the plug-in provider will receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online offer. In addition, the data mentioned under 3. of this declaration will be transmitted. By activating the plug-in, your personal data is transmitted to the respective provider and stored there (in the case of US providers in the USA). Since the plug-in provider collects data in particular via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies via your browser’s security settings before clicking on the greyed-out box.

(2) We have no influence on the data collected and data processing procedures, nor are we responsible for the full scope of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We also have no information about the deletion of the collected data by the plug-in provider.

(3) The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the design of its website to meet requirements. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the purpose of presenting need-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. Via the plug-ins we offer you the possibility to interact with the social networks and other users, so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 DS-GVO.

(4) The data is passed on regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, your data collected by us will be directly assigned to your account with the plug-in provider. If you click on the activated button and, for example, link the page, the plug-in provider will also store this information in your user account and publicly share it with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as this will help you avoid being assigned to your profile with the plug-in provider.

(5) Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the data protection declarations of these providers, which are provided below. There you will also find further information on your rights and settings options for protecting your privacy.
