This data is collected and processed in order to display the website, to ensure and improve stability and for security reasons. The legal basis for this processing is art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). The collection of this data as well as the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. There is therefore no possibility for the user to object.

3.2. Use of cookies

In addition, cookies are used when you visit our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer by us or by another website (more detailed information can be found in the description of our analysis procedures below) and through which specific information flows to the respective website setting the cookie. Cookies are always assigned to the browser. By using cookies, it is not possible to run programs or transfer viruses to your PC.

You can configure your browser settings according to your wishes and, for example, refuse the acceptance of third party cookies or all cookies. However, this may result in you not being able to use all functions of our website. You are also free to delete all cookies at any time using your browser settings.

3.2.1 Use of technically necessary cookies

We use technically necessary cookies to make our website more user-friendly and effective. The legal basis for this data processing is art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR. The use of these cookies is intended to facilitate your use of our website. Some functions of our website do not function without the use of these cookies and could therefore not be offered. Our legitimate interest in the processing of cookies arises from the aforementioned purposes. The cookies are deleted after the end of the session (e.g. logging out, reloading or closing the browser) or after a specified period.

3.2.2. Use of Borlabs Cookie

Our website uses Borlabs Cookie Content technology. Provider of this technology is Borlabs - Benjamin A. Bornschein, Georg-Wilhelm-Str. 17, 21107 Hamburg. A technically necessary cookie is set in order to obtain your consent to store certain cookies in your browser, as required by law, and to document this consent in accordance with data protection regulations. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c DS-GVO. This data is not passed on to the provider of Borlabs Cookie. Borlabs Cookies does not process any personal data. The collected data is stored until you request us to delete it or until you delete the cookies yourself or until the purpose for which the data is stored no longer applies.

The Borlabs cookie itself is valid for one year. For details of how Borlabs Cookie handles data, please visit https://de.borlabs.io/kb/welche-daten-speichert-borlabs-cookie/.

3.3. Use of Social Plug-Ins

On our website we use so-called social plugins of social networks like LinkedIn, Xing and Twitter. When you visit our website, these social plugins are deactivated by default. This means that without activating the social plugins on your part, no data is sent to the respective social networks. To activate the social plugins, you must first click on them. The Social Plugin remains activated until you deactivate it again by clicking on it again or by deleting your cookies. As soon as you have activated the respective social plugin, a direct connection is established with the server of the respective social network, whereby the content of the plugin is transmitted to your browser and integrated by it into the displayed website. Through activation, the information that you have visited our website is transmitted to the operator of the respective social network. The social network can assign your website visit to your account. This applies regardless of whether you actually use the social plugin after activation. Through interaction with plug-ins, e.g. by leaving a comment, this corresponding information is transmitted directly to the social networks and stored there. The legal basis for data collection and data transfer to the respective social network is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 a) DSGVO), which you give by activating the respective social plugin.

We would like to point out that we have no influence on the scope of the data collected by the social networks using the plug-ins. The scope and the data processing purposes pursued by the social networks as well as your relevant rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the data protection notes of the respective social networks. You can find them here:

Right of Objection Art. 21 GDPR

If we process your data on the basis of legitimate interests (art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR) or to perform a public task (art. 6 para. 1 e) GDPR) and if reasons against this processing arise from your particular situation, you have the right to object to this processing in accordance with art. 21 para. 1 GDPR. In the event of an objection, we will no longer process your data for these purposes, unless we can prove compelling grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

You have the right of objection - without restriction - pursuant to art. 21 para. 2 and 3 GDPR against any kind of processing for direct advertising purposes.

You can address your objection to us at any time requiring no particular form. For the best possible processing, please use the contact data named under point 1.

If we process your data on the basis of a consent given by you, you have the right to revoke your consent at any time.

For more information on how you can explain your revocation in detail, please refer to the previous information or the information in the respective consent. Please address your revocation to the contact data named under point 1.

Here your revocation - if technically possible - is implemented directly centrally or you will find an explanation how you can implement the revocation yourself, since a central implementation by us is not possible for some technical procedures.

If you believe that the processing of your personal data violates applicable law, you can complain to a data protection supervisory authority at any time in accordance with art. 77 GDPR. This is without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.

11. Do I have to provide the data or is the provision of data necessary for the conclusion of the contract?

With the exception of the technically necessary data for displaying our website, any provision of data by you is voluntary. Should this be different in exceptional cases, this is explicitly mentioned in the appropriate section of this declaration.

12. Will my data be used for automated decision making? And if so, how is this done and what are the consequences for me?

No, automated decision making does not take place.

13. Can this information be changed? And if so, how do I find out about this?

As our data processing is subject to change, we will also adjust our data protection information from time to time. We will inform you of any changes in good time. You will find the current version of these data protection regulations here.
