4. Data Collection on Our Website
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies.” They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device’s memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognize your browser when you next visit the site.
Server log files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in “server log files”. These are:
Browser type and browser version
Operating system used
Host name of the accessing computer
Time of the server request
These data will not be combined with data from other sources.
Collection of these data is pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 f DSGVO. The site owner has a legitimate interest in the techically error-free appearance and optimisation of his website, for which the server log files must be collected.
Should you send us questions via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your permission.
We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.
We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.
Queries via eMail, phone or fax
If you contact us via eMail, phone or fax, your query, including all relevant personal data, will be kept and processed by us in order to deal with your request. These data will not be shared without your consent.
Processing of these data is pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 b DSGVO, as long as your request is connected to the completion of a contract or contract preparation. In all other cases processing is pursuant to your approval (Art. 6 Para. 1 a DSGVO) and/or our legitimate interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 f DSGVO), as we have a justified interest in the effective treatment of requests made to us.
Data transmitted to us via contact requests remain with us until you request deletion, cancel your approval for storage or the reason for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. completion of your request). Compulsory legal requirements, especially legal retention periods, remain untouched.

6. Plugins and Tools
YouTube with extended data protection
Our website uses plugins from YouTube, which is operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
We use YouTube in extended data protection mode. This mode secures, according to YouTube, that no information about visitors to the website is stored before the video has been viewed. Transmission of data to YouTube partners is not definitely eliminated by the extended data protecion mode. Thus YouTube creates a link to Google DoubleClick independent of whether you view a video.
As soon as you start a video on our website a connectin to a YouTube sever is created. Thus the YouTube server is informed of which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged in to your YouTube account then your surfing behaviour can be directly linked to your personal profile. You can block this by logging out of your YouTube account.
Furthermore, YouTube can install various cookies on your terminal. These enable YouTube to collect information about the visitors to our website. This information can be used to generate video statistics, improve user friendliness and to protect against fraud. The cookies remain in your terminal until you delete them.
The start of a YouTube video may also launch other data processing processes over which we have no influence.
Use of YouTube is for an appropriate representation of our online offer. This represents a legitimate interest in Art. 6 Para. 1 f DSGVO.
Further information about data protection in YouTube can be found in their data protection statement at https://policies.google.com/privacy/
