Social Networks

We use social plug-ins from various social networks on our website. These plug-ins are functions of the respective social networks via which you are able, for example, to share the contents from our website with your contacts in the social networks or recommend the content to others. The social plug-ins can be recognized by the logo of the respective social networks.

  • Facebook: Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94302, USA
  • Google: Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA
  • Twitter: Twitter Inc., Folsom St., Ste. 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA

  • Xing: XING SE, Dammtorstrasse 30, 20354 Hamburg, Germany
  • Instagram: Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Rd., Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA

All social plug-ins are deactivated on our website as a default setting so that no data will be transmitted to the providers of the social networks by calling up our website. If you activate an initially deactivated social plug-in and use the functionality of the corresponding social networks, you explicitly give your consent that data will be transferred to the operator of the social network from this point onward. We have no influence on the extent of the data captured in this way by the providers of the social networks.

According to our knowledge, if the following data is transmitted:

  • IP Address
  • User identification if you are registered with the corresponding social network
  • Previously visited page(s) (referrer) if you have followed a link
  • Type and settings of browser
  • Installed plug-ins such as Adobe® Flash® or Adobe® Reader®
  • URL of the page on which the social plugin is integrated
  • The date and time of the visit

  • Site related information
  • Cookies

Through incorporation of the social plug-ins, the operators of the social networks receive the information that you have retrieved respective pages of our internet presence. If you are simultaneously logged into one of the social networks, the operator will be able to allocate the pages called up to your account with the respective social network. If, in addition to this, you interact with the social plug-ins, e.g. click on the “Like” button for Facebook, the corresponding information will be transmitted to the respective social network.

Even if you are not a member of the social network(s) named, there is a possibility that they will detect and save your IP address via the social plug-in. Our privacy policy does not apply to your activities on social networking sites that you access through links on our site. Please consult the data protection policies of the social networks for details of the purpose and extent of the data processing, acquisition and use by the social networks and on your rights and setting options in this respect.

Furthermore, you may also be able to stop data transmission to social networks by technical means. To do this, adjust the security settings in the web browser you are using. Please refer to the “Help” section in your web browser.

Facebook Pixel, Custom Audiences and Facebook Remarketing

Our online information contains the so-called "Facebook pixel" from the social network Facebook – which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or if you are a resident of the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook"). We use the Facebook pixel for our legitimate interests and for the purpose of analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online information.

Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and thereby offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law. With the help of the Facebook pixel, it is possible for Facebook to determine the visitors to our online pages as a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called "Facebook ads"). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display the Facebook ads placed by us only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online information or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called "Custom Audiences"). With the help of the Facebook pixel, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and do not have a harassing effect.

With the help of the Facebook pixel, we can also track the effectiveness of the Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called "conversion"). The processing of the data by Facebook takes place within the framework of Facebook's data use policy. Accordingly, general information on the display of Facebook ads, in Facebook's data usage policy. Specific information and details on the Facebook pixel and how it works can be found in Facebook's help section.

You can object to the collection and use of your data by the Facebook pixel to display Facebook ads. To adjust which types of ads are displayed to you within Facebook, you can go to the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions there on the settings for usage-based advertising. The settings are platform independent, i.e. they are applied to all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices. You can also opt out of the use of cookies for reach measurement and advertising purposes via the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page.

LinkedIn Insight Tag and LinkedIn Ads

We use the conversion tracking technology and the retargeting function of LinkedIn Corporation on our website. LinkedIn is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and thereby offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law.

In other words: This website uses the Insight Tag from LinkedIn. The provider of this service is LinkedIn.

We use the conversion tracking technology and the retargeting function of LinkedIn Corporation. With the aid of this technology, visitors to this website can be served personalized ads on LinkedIn. Furthermore, the possibility arises to create anonymous reports on the performance of the ads as well as information on website interaction (conversion measurement). For this purpose, the LinkedIn Insight Tag is embedded on this website, which establishes a connection to the LinkedIn server if you visit this website and are logged into your LinkedIn account at the same time.

The LinkedIn Insight Tag also provides a retargeting feature that allows us to display targeted off-site advertising to visitors to our website, which LinkedIn states does not identify the ad recipient.

In other words: The data collected by LinkedIn cannot be assigned to specific individuals by us as the website operator.

See LinkedIn's privacy policy for more information about data collection and use, as well as your privacy options and rights.

If you are logged in to LinkedIn, you can deactivate the data collection at any time by going into your settings and modifying your options. You can also object to the analysis of usage behavior as well as targeted advertising by going to your settings in LinkedIn. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.

The data processing is justified in each case according to Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR, because we have a legitimate interest in displaying personalized advertising to you and evaluating the use of our website.
If a corresponding consent has been requested (e.g. consent to store cookies), the processing is based exclusively on Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.
Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission.

The following categories of cookies are used on our website:

Session cookies

To facilitate browsing on our website, we make use of what are known as session cookies. Their purpose is to enable our server to recognize you or your computer/browser as the same visitor despite a possible interim change in IP address. These session cookies enable several connected requests from a user to be allocated to one session. The session cookie is only valid until the end of a session. It is automatically deleted when you close the browser.

Long-term cookies

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, which are stored on your computer, to help analyze your use of a website.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by servers operated by Google in the United States. Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield.

We employ Google Analytics exclusively with the extension “anonymizeIp” for IP anonymization, which ensures that your IP address is truncated prior to transmission by Google within the European Union / European  Economic Area in order to prevent it being linked to a particular individual. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there.

Google will use this information on our behalf for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website to compile reports on website activity for us and to provide us with other services relating to website activity and Internet usage. The IP address transferred by your browser to Google Analytics will not be combined with other data from Google.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings for your browser. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

Google Maps

Furthermore, our web presence also uses Google Maps on a number of subpages to display interactive maps and create route maps.

Google Maps is a cartographic service from Google. Using Google Maps may lead to information on the use of this website, including your IP address and the (starting) address used within the scope of the route planning function being transferred to Google. Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield.

If you call up a website from our Internet presence that contains Google Maps, your browser will establish a direction connection with the Google servers. Google will transfer the map contents directly to your browser and incorporate them into the website. Consequently, we have no influence on the scope of the data captured by Google via this method.

According to our knowledge, this involves at least the following data:

  • Date and time of the visit to the web page concerned.
  • Internet address or URL of the web page retrieved
  • IP address
  • The (starting) address entered during the route planning operation

We have no influence on the further processing and use of the data by Google and cannot assume responsibility for this.

You can find information on the purpose and extent of data acquisition as well as how the data is processed and used by Google, together with your rights and optional settings to protect your private sphere, in the data protection notes of Google.

Additionally, we use this information for site optimization, fraud/security purposes, and advertising. For more information about how Microsoft collects and uses your data visit the Microsoft Privacy Statement page.

Hyperlinks to external websites

Our website contains hyperlinks to websites of other providers. When clicking on these links, you will be transferred from our website directly to the website of other providers. The change in the URL amongst other factors will help you to recognize this.

We cannot accept any responsibility for the confidential handling of your data by these providers on such external websites, as we have no influence on whether these other providers adhere to the data protection provisions.
