2. General information

Personal data are all information relating to you personally, such as name, address, email addresses and user behaviour, which thereby allow the identity of the user to be determined.

We use the personal information you provide, for example in the event of enquiries or job applications, only within our company. No data are disclosed to other parties unless we have obtained your express consent.

Instead, it serves to ensure that you can connect to the website and use it conveniently, to evaluate system security and stability, and other administrative purposes.

7. Analytics software

We use cookies to analyse the use of our website and to improve the services we offer. By using our website, you consent to the use of cookies in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

Google Analytics:

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies that are stored on your computer and enable analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is typically transmitted to a Google server in the USA and saved there.

However, by activating IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will first be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website and internet usage for the website operator.

The IP address transmitted by your browser through use of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

You can prevent cookies from being stored by making an appropriate setting in your browser software, but please note that if you do, you may not be able to make full use of all features offered on this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data that the cookie generates relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing these data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available using the following link: Browser add-on for disabling Google Analytics.

8. Social media plug-ins

We do not use any social media plug-ins.

9. Google Maps

The Google Maps service is integrated on our website so that users can view geographical information about our locations. Google Maps allows users to immediately see the location of our registered offices and locations.

Google Maps is an online map service provided by Google Inc. that makes geographical information easier for users to read using an end device. When Google Maps is used, data are transferred to Google and stored on Google servers. These data include, among others, the search terms entered, the IP address and the latitude and longitude coordinates. If you use the Google Maps route planning feature, the starting address you enter is also stored. It is important to mention here that this usage and the data entry are voluntary and are outside our sphere of influence. Embedding Google Maps means that Google sets at least one cookie in your browser, which saves data about your user behaviour. Google uses these data primarily to optimize its services and to provide personalized advertising for you.

Google’s servers are located in computing centres around the world, which means that your data may also be stored in the USA. Google stores some data for a fixed period of time and anonymizes these data in server logs by deleting part of the IP address and cookie information after 9 or 18 months. Location and activity data are saved for either 3 or 18 months, depending on your decision, and are then deleted. You can delete the history of these data yourself manually at any time via your Google account. If you want to completely prevent your location from being recorded, you must disable the “Web and app activity” section in your Google account.

You can find out more about this in Google’s Privacy Policy, where you can also see where the Google data centres are located.
