This notice explains how we process your personal data.
Collection and processing of personal data
You may use our website without disclosing your identity. Where we ask for personal data (such as name, address or email address) on the website, for example in the context of contact forms or during login/registration, this information is provided voluntarily. We use this information for our own business purposes (for example, to send the requested materials/information).
If you have any questions, you may contact us using a form provided on our website. The data marked as mandatory is required to allow us to classify and respond to the enquiry. Further information may be provided voluntarily. Data processing for the purpose of contacting us is realised in accordance with Art. 6(1) clause 1a GDPR subject to your voluntary consent.
The personal data collected by us on the contact form will be deleted once your enquiry has been dealt with and upon expiry of the retention requirements imposed by tax and commercial law.
You may withdraw, with future effect, any consent you have given us, for example, for the purpose of receiving a newsletter or other interesting information from our company, at any time without giving a reason. Please use the above contact form or alternative means of contact for this purpose, as detailed in the newsletter.

Disclosure of the data
Your data will not be disclosed to third parties, for commercial or non-commercial purposes, without your express consent. We will only disclose your personal information to third parties if permitted by law [such as on the basis of Article 6 GDPR] and/or required by law.

Web analytics with Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer and allow analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookies regarding your use of this website (including your truncated IP address) will be transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities for the website operators and to provide further services related to website use and Internet use. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.

Our website uses Pardot Services, an analysis tool from salesforce.com [external page] Inc., The Landmark, 1 Market Street, San Francisco, CA 94105, USA. Pardot Services sets a maximum of two cookies. These are text files that are stored on your computer and allow an analysis of the use of the website. The cookies set are a “Visitor Cookie” and a “Pardot App Session Cookie”. Via the “visitor cookie” an identification number is generated, by means of which the browser of the website visitor is recognized. The identification number is a generated number code that has no meaning outside of Pardot Services. The “Pardot App Session Cookie” is only set when a customer logs in as a user in the Pardot app. All cookies receive only the generated number code. We also use Pardot when registering for our e-mail service. Emails sent via Pardot use tracking technologies. We use this data to find out which topics are of interest to you by tracking whether our emails are opened and which links you click. We then use this information to improve the emails we send to you and the services we provide. We store and process the collected data as part of data processing at our data processor Salesforce. Salesforce stores personal information primarily in the United States. If you want to prevent the tracking by Pardot, you can adjust your browser settings, or by an appropriate extension of your browser. However, this may result in some limitations in the features and usability of our offering.
