If we have specified your telephone number as mandatory information in a contact form, we need this in order to be able to answer your inquiry by telephone. The provision of further data may be helpful for the processing of your request, but is not mandatory (voluntary information).

Cookies are very small text files used by Internet sites that your browser stores on your computer and can send to us or, if necessary, to a third party certain information.
Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include in particular the session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which various requests of your browser can be assigned to the common session. This allows your computer to be recognized when you return to our website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.
Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified duration, which may differ depending on the cookie. Deletion, unlike transient cookies, does not occur automatically when the browser is closed. However, you can also delete the cookies at any time in the security settings of your browser.
Cookies that are absolutely necessary to provide a service expressly requested by the user ("essential cookies") are processed by us as part of our legitimate interest in providing and operating the website on the basis of Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO. Information on the designation, purpose and storage period of the cookies can be found in our cookie banner under the category "Essential".
You can set your browser so that it generally does not accept cookies or only certain cookies are stored or not stored. You can revoke any consent you may have given to the processing of data by means of cookies at any time by deleting the corresponding cookies directly via your browser settings. You can find out more about this in the help system of your browser. If your browser rejects all cookies, it is possible that not all functions of this website can be used.
In order to provide customers, partners or other interested parties with up-to-date information and to get in touch with them, we operate so-called "fan pages" on the following social networks in addition to our own website: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube. The data processing here takes place through the provider of the social media platform. Data processing outside the European Union cannot be ruled out. The provider of the platform may provide us with aggregated usage data, but we do not have access to personal data if you merely visit the fan page.
The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. In the case of consent in the form of an opt-in ("tick box", "activate button") or any other form of obtaining consent, the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO. Consent can be revoked at any time without giving reasons to the person to whom it was given, with effect for the future.

Information on the cookies used within the framework of Google Analytics can be found in our cookie banner under the category "Statistics".
This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". This means that IP addresses are processed in a shortened form in order to exclude direct personal references.
We use Google Analytics to analyze and regularly improve the use of our website. The statistics obtained allow us to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is your consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

We use the Google Ads service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland on our website. We pursue the interest to show you advertisements that are of interest to you and to make our website more interesting for you. In addition, you may be shown advertisements of our services and products when you visit the websites of third parties.
If you give your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a DSGVO, Google will set cookies on your terminal device when you visit our website or when you access our website via a third-party advertisement. You can find more information about the cookies used as part of this service in our cookie banner under the category "Marketing". Here, the success of the ads is measured on the basis of certain parameters for measuring success, such as display of the ads or clicks by users. In addition to this information, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values.
To track the success of the advertising measure, if the cookie has not yet expired, it is recognized via the identification of your browser that you clicked on an ad and were redirected to a website. A different cookie is assigned to each Google Ads customer. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across Ads customers' websites. We ourselves do not collect or process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. Based on these evaluations, we can see which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising media; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information.
LinkedIn members can control the use of their personal data for advertising purposes in their account settings. To disable the Insight tag on our website ("opt-out"), please click here.
We use rapidmail for sending newsletters. The provider is rapidmail GmbH, Wentzingerstraße 21, 79106 Freiburg, Germany. Among other things, rapidmail is used to organize and analyze the dispatch of newsletters. The data you enter for the purpose of receiving the newsletter is stored on rapidmail's servers in Germany. If you do not want any analysis by rapidmail, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message. For the purpose of analysis, the e-mails sent with rapidmail contain a so-called tracking pixel, which connects to the servers of rapidmail when the e-mail is opened. In this way, it can be determined whether a newsletter message has been opened. Furthermore, with the help of rapidmail, we can determine whether and which links in the newsletter message are clicked. Optionally, links in the e-mail can be set as tracking links, with which your clicks can be counted.
Legal basis: The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO.
Recipient: The recipient of the data is rapidmail GmbH.
Transmission to third countries: A transfer of data to third countries does not take place.
Duration: The data stored by us within the scope of your consent for the purpose of the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of rapidmail after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the member area) remain unaffected by this.
Revocation option: You have the option to revoke your consent to data processing with effect for the future at any time. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
