Our company attaches great importance to the protection of personal data and respects your desire for privacy. In the following, we inform you about the collection of personal data when using our website. If you still have questions about the handling of your personal data, please contact our data protection officer.
Legal basis of our data processing
The processing of personal data can be based on various legal grounds. If we need your data to fulfil a contract with you or to respond to enquiries from you regarding a contract, the legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. b GDPR. If we obtain your consent for certain data processing, the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR. We carry out some data processing on the basis of our legitimate interest, whereby a balancing of your interests worthy of protection and our legitimate interests is always carried out. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR. Insofar as processing is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject, the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) 1 p. 1 lit. c GDPR.
Below we explain how we process personal data via our website.
Data processing during website access
During the mere informational use of the website, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us (e.g. via a contact form), we collect the following technical information (log file data):
- Operating system of the end device with which you visit our website
- Browser (type, version & language settings)
- the amount of data retrieved
- the current IP address of the end device with which you visit our website
- Date and time of access
- the URL of the previously visited website (referrer)
- the URL of the (sub)page you are accessing on the website
- the Internet service provider of the accessing system
The collection of this data is technically necessary to display our website to you and to ensure stability and security. We (and our service provider) are regularly unaware of who is behind an IP address. We do not combine the data listed above with other data.
The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f GDPR. Since the collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage in log files are absolutely necessary for the operation of the website and for protection against misuse, our legitimate interest in data processing prevails at this point.
We will be pleased to provide you with information on whether personal data relating to you is being processed; if this is the case, you have a right to information on this personal data and to the information listed in detail in Art. 15 GDPR. In addition, you have the right to rectification (Art. 16 of the GDPR), the right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR), the right to erasure (Art. 17 GDPR) and the right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR), subject to the respective legal requirements.
You have the right to object to the processing under the legal conditions (Art. 21 GDPR):
You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. e or f GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. We shall no longer process the personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If personal data are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing.
To exercise your rights above, please contact us by e-mail at email@example.com or by post at COMPIRICUS GmbH, Graf-Adolf-Platz 6, 40213 Düsseldorf. The exercise of your rights is free of charge for you.
Without prejudice to these rights and the possibility of seeking any other administrative or judicial remedy, you may at any time exercise your right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes data protection rules (Article 77 of the GDPR).
The supervisory authority responsible for us is: https://www.ldi.nrw.de/
When you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form, the data you provide (your e-mail address, name and telephone number, if applicable) will be stored by us in order to answer your questions and process your requests. The legal basis in this respect is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f GDPR.
Insofar as we request information via our contact form that is not required for contacting us, we have always marked this as optional. This information is used to specify your request and to improve the processing of your request. Any communication of this information is expressly on a voluntary basis and with your consent, Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR. Insofar as this involves information on communication channels (e.g. e-mail address, telephone number), you also consent to us contacting you via this communication channel, if necessary, in order to respond to your request. Of course, you can revoke this consent at any time for the future.
Your data, which we have received in the course of contacting you, will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected, your request has been fully processed and no further communication with you is necessary or desired by you.
As the party responsible for data protection, our company has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can always have security gaps. Absolute protection cannot be guaranteed; in any case, sending unencrypted e-mails is not secure. We therefore ask you not to send sensitive data by unencrypted e-mail, but to use either encrypted communication channels (e.g. our contact form) or the postal service.
You can subscribe to our newsletter on individual websites, which we use to inform you about our company’s activities, current information about our services, webinars, promotions, events and competitions. The content of the individual newsletter will be briefly described during the registration process. The legal basis for sending the respective newsletter is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR in conjunction with. § 7 (2) no. 3 UWG or the legal permission according to § 7 (3) UWG.
We use the so-called double-opt-in procedure to register for our newsletters. This means that after your registration, we will send you an email to the email address you provided, in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration, your information will be automatically deleted after 3 days.
For the dispatch of our newsletter we use “Cleverreach “
CleverReach® GmbH & Co. KG
The only mandatory data for sending the newsletter is your e-mail address. The provision of further data is voluntary: this data is used to be able to address you personally. After your confirmation, we store your e-mail address for the purpose of sending the newsletter and until revoked. We also store your IP address current at the time of registration, the time of registration and the confirmation for up to three years after registration (limitation period). The purpose of this procedure is to be able to prove your registration in case of doubt and, if necessary, to clarify any misuse of your personal data. The legal basis for logging the registration is our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f GDPR in proving that consent was previously given, see also Art. 7 (1) GDPR.
You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter and unsubscribe at any time. You can declare the revocation by clicking on the link provided in every newsletter email or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would like to point out that we evaluate your user behaviour when sending the newsletter in order to determine whether and when the newsletter was opened. For this evaluation, the emails sent contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels that are stored on our server and loaded when the newsletter is opened. Technical information such as browser type, time of opening and IP address is transmitted. For analysis purposes, we link the above data and the web beacons with your email address and an individual ID. Links received in the newsletter also contain this ID and enable us to analyse your click behaviour.
The data is processed pseudonymously, i.e. the IDs are not directly linked to your other personal data, a direct personal reference is excluded. The legal basis for this data processing is your consent, Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR.
You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. In this case, the revocation includes the entire newsletter, as a separate revocation of the tracking is unfortunately not technically possible. To do so, simply click the unsubscribe link provided in each email.
Moreover, such tracking is not possible if you have deactivated the display of images by default in your e-mail programme. In this case, the newsletter will not be displayed in full and you may not be able to use all the functions. If you display the images manually, the above-mentioned tracking takes place.
The tracking information is stored for as long as you are subscribed to the newsletter. After unsubscribing, the data is anonymised and used for purely statistical purposes.
The data you provide us with for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this.
We make white papers available to you on our website. In order to receive these, we need your e-mail address, which you can enter in a form.
The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. b GDPR, because we can only provide you with our contractual service (the download of the whitepaper) by e-mail.
Please note that when you register to receive the whitepaper, you also register for our newsletter. The provision of your data for the purpose of advertising takes place in return for the receipt of the whitepaper. In this respect, the legal basis for the processing within the scope of the newsletter is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. b GDPR.
You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time free of charge with effect for the future by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the end of the newsletter or by sending us an email to email@example.com.
As part of our whitepaper offering, we use the service LamaPoll, Lamano GmbH & Co. KG, Frankfurter Allee 69, 10247 Berlin, to collect and process your email address. With LamaPoll, we have taken data protection precautions to protect your personal data.
We base the use of LamaPoll on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR, which you can revoke at any time with effect for the future.
You can apply to our company electronically, e.g. via e-mail or web form. Please note that unencrypted e-mails will not be transmitted without access protection.
Your details will be used for processing your application and deciding on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis is § 26 (1) in conjunction with § 26 (8) sentence 2 BDSG. Furthermore, your personal data may be processed if this is necessary to defend legal claims asserted against us from the application process. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest in the processing also lies in the stated purposes.
Insofar as an employment relationship arises between you and us, we may further process the personal data already received from you for the purposes of the employment relationship in accordance with § 26(1) of the BDSG if this is necessary for the performance or termination of the employment relationship or for the exercise or fulfilment of the rights and obligations of the employee representation resulting from a law or a collective agreement, a works agreement or a service agreement (collective agreement).
Your application data will not be processed beyond the described use.
Your personal data will be deleted after completion of the application procedure after 6 months at the latest, provided that no other legitimate interests on our part oppose deletion or you have not given us consent for longer storage. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
What are cookies?
Cookies are data that are stored on your computer by a website you visit and enable your browser to be reassigned. Cookies transmit information to the entity that sets the cookie. Cookies can store various information, such as your language setting, the duration of your visit to our website or the entries you have made there. This prevents you, for example, from having to re-enter required form data each time you use the site. The information stored in cookies can also be used to recognise preferences and to tailor content according to areas of interest.
There are different types of cookies: Session cookies are sets of data that are only temporarily held in the working memory and are deleted when you close your browser. Permanent or persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a predefined period of time, which may differ depending on the cookie. With this type of cookie, the information can also be stored in text files on your computer. However, you can also delete these cookies at any time via your browser settings.
First-party cookies are set by the website you are currently visiting. Only that website is allowed to read information from these cookies. Third-party cookies are set by organisations that do not operate the website you are visiting. These cookies are used by marketing companies, for example.
The legal basis for possible processing of personal data by means of cookies and their storage period may vary. Insofar as you have given us your consent, the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR (if applicable in conjunction with § 25 (1) TTDSG). If the data processing is based on our overriding legitimate interests, the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f GDPR (if applicable in conjunction with § 25 (2) no. 2 TTDSG). The stated purpose then corresponds to our legitimate interest.
You can find more information about the cookies used on the website – in particular the cookie names, the providers, the purposes and the storage period here.
With regard to cookies requiring consent (i.e. all cookies for which we ask you for consent in the cookie banner), you can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by clicking here or by clicking on the cookie banner at the end of the website under “Cookie settings” and changing your decision.
Usercentrics Consent Management
- Device information
- Browser information
- IP address (anonymised)
- Opt-in and opt-out data
- Date and time of the visit
- URLs of the website
- Page path of the website
- Geographical location
The purpose of data processing is to comply with legal obligations and to store consent. The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f GDPR. The data is processed in the EU (the consent database is located in Belgium) and the consent data (consent and withdrawal of consent) is stored for three years.
For the purpose of analysing and optimising our websites, we use various services, which are described below. We use these services to analyse how many users visit our site, which information is most in demand or how users find the offer. We also collect data on which internet page a user came to our website from (so-called referrer), which sub-pages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a sub-page was viewed. This helps us to design our offers in a user-friendly way, to find errors and to improve our offers.
The legal basis for this data processing is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a, 7 GDPR in conjunction with. § 25 (1) TTDSG.
If you have given your consent, this website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC. The responsible party for users in the EU/EEA and Switzerland is Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”).
Scope of the processing
In Google Analytics 4, the anonymisation of IP addresses is activated by default. Due to IP anonymisation, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
During your visit to the website, your user behaviour is recorded in the form of “events”. Events can be:
- Page impressions
- First visit to the website
- Start of the session
- Your “click path”, interaction with the website
- Scrolls (whenever a user scrolls to the end of the page (90%))
- Clicks on external links
- internal queries
- Interaction with videos
- Ads seen / clicked
It also records:
- Your approximate location (region)
- Your IP address (in shortened form)
- Technical information about your browser and the end devices you use (e.g. language setting, screen resolution)
- Your internet provider
- the referrer URL (via which website/advertising medium you came to this website)
Purposes of the processing
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your (pseudonymous) use of the website and compiling reports on website activity. The reports provided by Google Analytics are used to analyse the performance of our website and the success of our marketing campaigns.
Recipients of the data are/could be
Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (as processor according to Art. 28 GDPR)
Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA
Alphabet Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA
It cannot be ruled out that US authorities will access the data stored by Google.
Third country transfer
Insofar as data is processed outside the EU/EEA and there is no level of data protection corresponding to the European standard, we have concluded EU standard contractual clauses with the service provider to establish an appropriate level of data protection. The parent company of Google Ireland, Google LLC, is based in California, USA. A transfer of data to the USA and access by US authorities to the data stored by Google cannot be ruled out. The USA is currently considered a third country from a data protection perspective. You do not have the same rights there as within the EU/EEA. You may not have any legal remedies against access by authorities.
The data sent by us and linked to cookies are automatically deleted after 14 months. The deletion of data whose retention period has been reached takes place automatically once a month.
The legal basis for this data processing is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR in conjunction with. § 25 (1) TTDSG.
You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by accessing the cookie settings here and changing your selection there. The lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation remains unaffected.
Alternatively, you can prevent the storage of cookies from the outset by configuring your browser software accordingly. However, if you configure your browser to reject all cookies, this may restrict functionalities on this and other websites. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google and the processing of this data by Google by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser.

DoubleClick by Google
When you access a page that uses DoubleClick and for which the DoubleClick script is permitted, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. As the website operator, we have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool. We inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of DoubleClick, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider may obtain and store your IP address.
Where data is processed outside the EEA, where there is no level of data protection equivalent to the European standard, we have concluded EU standard contractual clauses with the service provider to establish a secure level of data protection.
For more information on DoubleClick by Google, please visit https://www.google.de/doubleclick and on Google privacy in general: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy. Alternatively, you can visit the website of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) at https://www.networkadvertising.org.
. The collection and storage of data only takes place after explicit consent according to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR in conjunction with. § 25 (1) TTDSG. This can be revoked at any time with effect for the future.
Google Tag Manager
For reasons of transparency, we would like to point out that we use the Google Tag Manager of the provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The responsible party for users in the EU/EEA and Switzerland is Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.
Google Tag Manager makes it easy for us to integrate and manage our tags. Tags are small code elements that are used, among other things, to measure traffic and visitor behaviour, to record the impact of online advertising and social channels, to set up remarketing and targeting, and to test and optimise websites. We use the Tag Manager for the Google Analytics service. If you have deactivated it, this deactivation will be taken into account by the Google Tag Manager. For more information on the Google Tag Manager, see: https://www.google.com/intl/de/tagmanager/use-policy.html.
The legal basis is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR in conjunction with. § 25 (1) TTDSG, which you can revoke at any time with effect for the future.
Analysis by wiredminds
Our website uses the tracking pixel technology of wiredminds GmbH (www.wiredminds.de) to analyse visitor behaviour. Wiredminds allows us to recognise which companies have visited our site. In doing so, we do not receive any information that directly identifies you.
With Wiredminds, a visitor’s IP address is matched against a whitelist of IP addresses that can only be assigned to companies. The processing is done solely for the purpose of collecting company-relevant information such as the company name. IP addresses of natural persons are not assigned to a profile and are not stored. The IP address is not stored in LeadLab under any circumstances.
WiredMinds GmbH uses this information to create pseudonymised usage profiles relating to visitor behaviour on our website. The data obtained in this way is not used to personally identify visitors to our website.
The legal basis is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR in conjunction with. § 25 (1) TTDSG, which you can revoke at any time with effect for the future.
Information on data protection at wiredminds can be found on their website: https://www.wiredminds.de/datenschutz/.
LinkedIn Insight Tag
We use the LinkedIn Conversion Tracking (Insight Tag) service of LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland as part of the evaluation of our online advertising.
For this purpose, we define target groups of users in the LinkedIn Campaign Manager on the basis of certain characteristics, who are subsequently shown advertisements within the LinkedIn network. The users are selected by LinkedIn based on the profile information they provide, as well as other data provided when using LinkedIn. If a user clicks on an advertisement and subsequently arrives on our website, LinkedIn receives the information that the user has clicked on the advertising banner via the conversion tag integrated on our website.
The LinkedIn tag thus enables the collection of visited web pages, including the URL, referrer ID, IP address, device and browser properties and timestamp. The IP addresses are shortened or (in the case of cross-device use) hashed by LinkedIn.
Members’ direct identifiers are removed within 7 days to pseudonymise the data. The remaining pseudonymous data is then deleted within 180 days.
The LinkedIn pixel allows us to show personalised ads outside of our website without identifying individual members. Data that does not identify you is also used to improve ad relevance and reach LinkedIn members across devices. LinkedIn members can control the use of their personal data for advertising purposes through their account settings. LinkedIn refers to the following link to customise advertising preferences: https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/advertising/actions-that-showed-interest.
We process this data to evaluate our advertising campaigns. The legal basis for the processing is your voluntary consent within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR in conjunction with. § 25 (1) TTDSG. Without your consent via our Consent Tool, no data will be processed for LinkedIn Conversion Tracking. Once you have given your consent, you can revoke it at any time with future effect by changing your selection in the cookie settings.
Further information on LinkedIn Conversion Tracking can be found at: https://business.linkedin.com/de-de/marketing-solutions/conversion-tracking#get-started.
Further information on data processing and storage duration can be found at https://www.linkedin.com/help/linkedin/answer/65521?lang=de.
Google Web Fonts
This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly. We have opted for the offline variant, in which the Google Fonts are stored locally on our web server. The fonts can then be managed – using CSS – as with any other font family. The IP address and other data are not transmitted to Google.
Google Web Fonts are used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers with regard to efficiency and cost-saving considerations. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font from your computer will be used.
We use the Google Translate translation plug-in of the advertising programme of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The responsible party for users in the EU/EEA and Switzerland is Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.
Google Translate offers a computer-assisted, automated translation. Translation errors can therefore not be excluded, so that deviations between the original text and computer-generated translations are possible. We therefore do not guarantee the accuracy, reliability or timeliness of the information translated by this system and accept no liability for any damage incurred. It may also not be possible to translate some applications, files or elements (including graphics, photos or PDFs). Google Translate is used in the interest of easy accessibility and accessibility of our online offers for international visitors.
Our plug-in places a cookie in your browser cache. When you visit our website again, this will take over your last preferred language setting for our website. To view our website in the original language again, you must either revoke Google Translate via our cookie settings or delete your browser cache.
To use the functions of Google Translate, it is necessary to save your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
We have no influence on this data transmission. Insofar as data is processed outside the EEA, where there is no level of data protection equivalent to the European standard, Google states that it uses standard contractual clauses.
The collection and storage of data only takes place after explicit consent according to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR in conjunction with. § 25 (1) TTDSG. This consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future.
To protect against attacks, harmful bots and to improve performance, we use the services of our technology partner CloudFlare Inc, 101 Townsend St, San Francisco, CA 94107 USA. All data to and from this server is transmitted through Cloudflare’s CDN (“Content Delivery Network”). Cloudflare provides internet security services and distributed DNS services (domain name servers) that act as reverse proxies for websites.
Cloudflare collects statistical data about visits to this website. The access data includes: Name of the accessed website, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider. Cloudflare uses the log data for statistical evaluations for the purpose of the operation, security and optimisation of its own offer.
When a customer account is deleted, the data is deleted from the servers. In addition, you have the option to purge data from the cache at any time. Log files are kept for up to 7 days.
Further information on data processing by the provider, in particular on data protection and data security, can be found at: https://www.cloudflare.com/security-policy/
The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR in conjunction with. § 25 (1) TTDSG. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future.

Social bookmarks are internet bookmarks with which the users of such a service can collect links and news reports. These are only embedded on our website as a link to the corresponding services. After clicking on the embedded graphic, you will be redirected to the page of the respective provider, i.e. only then will user information be transmitted to the respective provider. For information on the handling of your personal data when using these websites, please refer to the respective data protection provisions of the providers, which we have linked to you.
We use services from YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, a subsidiary of Google Inc, Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, on our website. For users who are habitually resident in the European Economic Area or Switzerland, Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland is the data controller for your data.
To protect your personal data, we use the extended data protection option provided by YouTube. When you call up a page in which a YouTube video is embedded, a connection is established to the YouTube servers and the content is displayed on the website by informing your browser. According to YouTube’s information, however, data is only transmitted to the YouTube server in “extended data protection mode” when you actively start the video. If you are logged in to YouTube at this time, the information about the videos you have viewed will be assigned to your YouTube member account. You can prevent this by logging out of your member account before visiting our website. Insofar as data is processed outside the European Economic Area / the EU, where there is no level of data protection equivalent to the European standard, Google states that it uses standard contractual clauses.
Further information on YouTube’s data protection is provided by Google at the following link: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/
We have taken extensive technical and operational precautions to protect your data from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. Our security procedures are regularly reviewed and adapted to technological progress.
As a matter of principle, your personal data will not be transferred to third parties unless we are legally obliged to do so, or the transfer of data is necessary for the performance of the contractual relationship, or you have previously given your express consent to the transfer of your data.
External service providers and partner companies such as IT service providers only receive your data if this is necessary. In these cases, however, the scope of the transmitted data is limited to the necessary minimum. Insofar as our service providers process your personal data on our behalf, we ensure within the framework of commissioned processing pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR that they comply with the provisions of the data protection laws in the same manner. Please also note the data protection information of the respective providers. The respective service provider is responsible for the content of third-party services, whereby we check the services for compliance with the legal requirements within the scope of reasonableness.
We make a point of processing your data within the EU / EEA. However, we may use service providers who process data outside the EU / EEA. In these cases, we ensure that an adequate level of data protection comparable to the standards within the EU is established at the recipient before transferring your personal data. This can be achieved, for example, via EU standard contracts or Binding Corporate Rules or special agreements to whose regulations the company can submit.
