3. Data security

3.1 Data security
All data on our website is protected by technical and organisational measures against loss, destruction, access, alteration and distribution.

3.2 Sessions and Cookies
We may use cookies or server-side sessions in which data can be stored to operate the website. Cookies are files that are stored on your hard drive by a website in order to automatically recognize this computer the next time you visit the website and thus adapt the use of the website to you. Some of the cookies used are deleted after the end of the browser session. These are so-called session cookies. Other cookies remain on your end device and enable the browser to be recognised during a subsequent visit to our website (permanent cookies). You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and decide individually whether to accept them or whether to exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general. Please note that you may not be able to use some functions of this website if cookies are deactivated. We ensure that no personal data from sessions or through cookies is transferred and that cookies are only used if this is technically necessary for the website. Thus, the assessment shows that no overriding interests on your part conflict (Art. 6 I S. 1 f DSGVO).

Your usage profile can be used, for example, to place advertisements that presumably correspond to your interests.

We process the personal data exclusively for communication with you via the social media platform selected by you and for the optimisation of our online presence and make sure that no interests on your part are affected which outweigh this justified interest on our part (Art. 6 I S. 1 f DSGVO).

Third-party services

6.1 Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google and operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”), and collects and stores via this web analytics service data from which user profiles are created using pseudonyms. The user profiles created in this way are used to evaluate visitor behaviour in order to design and improve the services presented on this website in line with requirements. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are small text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google in advance within member states of the European Union or in other signatory 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 where it will be shortened. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. Even the user profiles under a pseudonym are not merged with the personal data of the user without the express and separately declared consent of the user. Thus, the assessment shows that no overriding interests on your part conflict (Art. 6 I S. 1 f DSGVO). You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en). 
You can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent the collection of your information on future visits to this website: You can view Google’s privacy policy at http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ . For more information about the terms of use and privacy policy, please visit http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code “anonymizeIp” in order to guarantee an anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

6.2 Social media links and social sharing
We have our own social media pages with the third-party providers that can be reached via links from this website. By using the links, you can access the respective websites of the third party providers (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Google+) and also share our content. No data transfer takes place when you access our website. To avoid unnecessary data transfer, we recommend that you log out of the respective third-party provider yourself before using a corresponding link, so that usage profiles cannot be created by the third-party provider through the use of the link.

6.3 Use of Vimeo
This website and the integrated offers contain so-called embeddings of videos on Vimeo. These allow the connection to Vimeo and the videos stored there. Vimeo is operated by Vimeo, Inc. 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011. No interests of the users are affected which outweigh this technical necessity of integrating the videos (Art. 6 I S. 1 f DSGVO). For the purpose and scope of data collection and use by Vimeo as well as your rights and settings to protect your privacy as a Vimeo customer, please refer to Vimeo’s privacy policy. These can be found at: https://vimeo.com/privacy

6.4 Use of MailChimp
Our e-mail communication is handled via “MailChimp”, a platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. Your e-mail address and other data described in this notice will be stored on MailChimp’s servers in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate e-mails on our behalf. Furthermore, according to its own information, MailChimp can use this data to optimise or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimisation of the dispatch and presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes in order to determine from which countries the recipients come. MailChimp does not use the data of our mail recipients in order to write to them or pass them on to third parties. MailChimp is certified under the US-EU data protection agreement “Privacy Shield” and thus undertakes to comply with EU data protection regulations. In addition, we have concluded a data processing agreement with MailChimp. This is a contract in which MailChimp undertakes to protect the data of our users, to process it on our behalf in accordance with their data protection regulations and, in particular, not to pass it on to third parties. Thus, the weighing up results in the fact that no overriding interests on your part are opposed (Art. 6 I S. 1 f DSGVO). You can view the data protection regulations of MailChimp at https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/

6.5 Use of Google Remarketing
This website uses the remarketing function of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). This feature is used to present interest-based advertisements to website visitors within the Google advertising network. A “cookie” is stored in the visitor’s browser, which allows the user to be identified pseudonymously when the visitor visits websites that are part of Google’s advertising network. On these pages, advertisements can be presented to the visitor which refer to contents which the visitor has previously called up on websites which use the remarketing function of Google. According to its own information, Google does not collect any personal data during this process. Thus, the assessment shows that there are no overriding interests on your part (Art. 6 I S. 1 f DSGVO). However, if you do not want Google’s remarketing function to work, you can always deactivate it by making the appropriate settings at http://www.google.com/settings/ads . Alternatively, you can deactivate the use of cookies for interest-related advertising via the advertising network initiative by following the instructions under http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.

6.6 Use of Google ReCAPTCHA
This website uses the reCAPTCHA service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). This function is used to distinguish between input by a human being and misuse by automated, machine processing. The query includes sending the IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. For this purpose your input will be transmitted to Google and used there. However, your IP address will be shortened by Google in advance within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of 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 reCaptcha is not merged with other Google data. The processing thus serves to avoid the misuse of this website and is ultimately anonymous, so that the weighing of interests shows that no overriding interests on your part stand in the way of processing (Art. 6 I S. 1 f DSGVO). It asserts Google’s data protection guidelines, which can be found at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

6.7 Google Web Fonts
We use web fonts from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”) to provide you with a consistent font on our website. These are automatically stored in your browser cache when you visit one of our pages in order to enable the desired display. If your browser does not support the web fonts used, a standard font of your computer may be used. Here no interests of the users are concerned, which outweigh this technical necessity (art. 6 I S. 1 f DSGVO). You can view Google’s privacy policy here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/ Further information on Google Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq 

6.8 Using Facebook Remarketing Pixels
We use the remarketing function “Custom Audiences” of Facebook Inc, 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The entity responsible for processing the information collected by Facebook is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. This feature enables us to target visitors to this Facebook website with targeted advertising. For this purpose, personalized and interest-based Facebook ads are placed when the pages are visited by Facebook. The function is enabled on our website by a remarketing pixel from Facebook, which is implemented on the page. When you visit our website, the pixel is used to establish a direct connection to the Facebook server if you have agreed to set the pixel or have activated the plugin. The Facebook server thus transmits which of our Internet pages the user has visited. Facebook assigns this information to your personal Facebook user account. For more information about Facebook’s collection and use of this information, your rights in this regard, and how Facebook can protect your privacy, please see Facebook’s privacy policy at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/ .

If you do not want Facebook to associate the collected information directly with your Facebook user account, you can edit the remarketing function “Custom Audiences” in your account settings at: https://www.facebook.com/login.php?next=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fsettings%2F%3Ftab%3Dads#_=_. You must be logged in to Facebook to do this.
