IV.        Hosting and Content Delivery Networks (CDN)

This website is hosted by an external service provider (host). Personal data collected on this website are stored on the servers of the host. These may include, but are not limited to, IP addresses, contact requests, metadata and communications, contract information, contact information, names, web page access, and other data generated through a web site.

The host is used for the purpose of fulfilling the contract with our potential and existing customers (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR) and in the interest of secure, fast, and efficient provision of our online services by a professional provider (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR).

We are using the following host:

AWS Deutschland

 

V. Use of third-party plug-ins (for example, social media plug-ins or online map service plug-ins)

The website includes so-called third-party plug-ins that allow you to use third-party functionalities offered on the website. The plug-ins are integrated on the website via a so-called “2-click solution”. With this solution, the respective plug-in is not activated directly when the website is called, but only when you activate the activation button for the respective plug-in.

If you activate a third-party plug-in, you use a functionality offered by the provider of the respective plug-in on its own responsibility, which is only optically embedded in the presentation of our website. When activating the respective plug-in, the provider of the respective plug-in may possibly receive personal data from you. In addition, when the plug-in is activated, the provider of the particular plug-in may use cookies or similar technologies. We have no knowledge of the specific purposes, content and storage duration as well as the need for consent of the cookies or similar technologies used by the provider of the plug-in. Specific information on this can be found in the additional information provided by the respective third-party provider (see below).

Below you will find more detailed information:

1. Processing of personal data by providers of third-party plug-ins

The 2-click solution ensures that your Internet browser initially does not connect to servers of the provider of the respective plug-in when the website is accessed. When the website is called up, the provider of the respective plug-in cannot collect any personal data from you via the respective plug-in. The respective plug-in is activated only when you activate the button provided for activating the respective plug-in. As a result of the activation, a connection is made to servers of the provider of the respective plug-in. This allows the provider of the respective activated plug-in to collect personal data from you. Activation of the respective plug-in is technically comparable to clicking on a link to an external website, with the difference that the content called up does not appear in a new window / tab of your Internet browser but optically embedded in our website. The data exchange initiated by you through the activation and use of the plug-in takes place exclusively between your Internet browser and the servers of the provider of the respective plug-in. If you activate a third-party plug-in, you are therefore using a functionality offered by the provider of the respective plug-in, which is optically embedded in the presentation of our website.

When activating the respective plug-in, the provider of the respective plug-in (comparable to calling an external website via a link) can receive in particular your IP address as well as the address (URL) of the website from which you are activating. In addition, the provider of the respective activated plug-in can receive information from any cookies of the respective provider stored in your internet browser. The provider of the respective plug-in can thus at least receive the information that our website was called up under the IP address assigned to you at the time of the call by activating the respective plug-in. If you are registered as a user with the respective third-party provider, the provider of the respective plug-in can generally also assign the received data to your user account. We point out that we have no knowledge of the data collected specifically by the provider of the respective plug-in. In addition, we have no knowledge of the specific purpose of processing the data collected by the provider of the respective plug-in or other details of the data processing of the respective provider. In particular, we do not know whether the respective provider processes the data collected solely for the purpose of providing the functionality of the respective plug-in (eg for the sharing of specific content or the submission of comments) or, for any other purpose (eg Formation of user profiles or for the personalization of advertising).

 

2. Information about the social media plug-ins used

Any time one of our sites/pages that contains functions of XING is accessed, a connection with XING’s servers is established. As far as we know, this does not result in the archiving of any personal data. In particular, the service does not store any IP addresses or analyze user patterns.

Data are stored and analyzed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the highest possible visibility on social media. If a respective declaration of consent has been obtained, the data will be processed exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a DGDPR. Any such consent may be revoked at any time.

3. Information about the other third-party plug-ins used

YouTube with expanded data protection integration

Our website embeds videos of the website YouTube. The website operator is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

We use YouTube in the expanded data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode ensures that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. Nevertheless, this does not necessarily mean that the sharing of data with YouTube partners can be ruled out as a result of the expanded data protection mode. For instance, regardless of whether you are watching a video, YouTube will always establish a connection with the Google DoubleClick network.

As soon as you start to play a YouTube video on this website, a connection to YouTube’s servers will be established. As a result, the YouTube server will be notified, which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account while you visit our site, you enable YouTube to directly allocate your browsing patterns to your personal profile. You have the option to prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

Furthermore, after you have started to play a video, YouTube will be able to place various cookies on your device or comparable technologies for recognition (e.g. device fingerprinting). In this way YouTube will be able to obtain information about this website’s visitors. Among other things, this information will be used to generate video statistics with the aim of improving the user friendliness of the site and to prevent attempts to commit fraud.

Under certain circumstances, additional data processing transactions may be triggered after you have started to play a YouTube video, which are beyond our control.

The use of YouTube is based on our interest in presenting our online content in an appealing manner. Pursuant to Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR, this is a legitimate interest. If a corresponding agreement has been requested, the processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the agreement can be revoked at any time.

For more information on how YouTube handles user data, please consult the YouTube Data Privacy Policy under: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

Google Web Fonts

To ensure that fonts used on this website are uniform, this website uses so-called Web Fonts provided by Google. When you access a page on our website, your browser will load the required web fonts into your browser cache to correctly display text and fonts.

To do this, the browser you use will have to establish a connection with Google’s servers. As a result, Google will learn that your IP address was used to access this website. The use of Google Web Fonts is based on Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in a uniform presentation of the font on the operator’s website. If a respective declaration of consent has been obtained (e.g., consent to the archiving of cookies), the data will be processed exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR. Any such consent may be revoked at any time.

If your browser should not support Web Fonts, a standard font installed on your computer will be used.

For more information on Google Web Fonts, please follow this link: https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and consult Google’s Data Privacy Declaration under: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.
