Application and use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)
The person responsible for processing has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data about which website a person concerned came to a website from (so-called referrers), which sub-pages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize an internet page and for cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.
The data controller uses the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned is shortened by Google and made anonymous if the access to our Internet pages is from a member state of the European Union or from another state that is a party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website in order to compile online reports for us which show the activities on our website and to provide further services in connection with the use of our website.
Google Analytics sets a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the person responsible for processing and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, is called up, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. In the course of this technical process, Google receives knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission settlements.
By means of the cookie, personal information such as the access time, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned is stored. Each time our website is visited, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.
The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
The data controller has integrated components of LinkedIn Corporation on this website. LinkedIn is an Internet-based social network that allows users to connect with existing business contacts and to make new business contacts. Over 400 million registered users use LinkedIn in more than 200 countries. This makes LinkedIn currently the largest platform for business contacts and one of the most visited websites in the world.
Each time a LinkedIn component (LinkedIn plug-in) is installed on our website, this component causes the browser used by the individual to download an appropriate representation of the LinkedIn component. Further information about LinkedIn plug-ins can be found at https://linkedin.com/developer. This technical process allows LinkedIn to know which specific page of our website is visited by the data subject.
If the person is logged on to LinkedIn, LinkedIn will know which specific page of our website the person is visiting each time the person visits our website, and for the duration of the person's visit. This information is collected by the LinkedIn component and assigned by LinkedIn to the LinkedIn account of the person concerned. If the person concerned clicks on a LinkedIn button integrated on our website, LinkedIn assigns this information to the personal LinkedIn user account of the person concerned and stores this personal data.
LinkedIn receives information via the LinkedIn component that the person concerned has visited our website if the person concerned is logged in to LinkedIn at the same time when he or she accesses our website; this occurs regardless of whether the person concerned clicks on the LinkedIn component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be sent to LinkedIn, he or she can prevent it from being sent by logging out of his or her LinkedIn account before accessing our website.
The data controller has integrated the SnapEngage component on this website. This is a live support helpdesk software, which enables the establishment of direct communication in real time (so-called live chat) with visitors to his own website.
Developer of the component is SnapEngage, at 1722 14th St., Suite 220, Boulder, CO 80302, USA with office in Berlin/Germany
With each individual call of our website, which is equipped with this component, data is collected by this component with the purpose of operating the live chat system and analysing the operation of the system. Further information can be found at https://snapengage.com/privacy-policy.
This component sets a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. The SnapEngage cookie can be used to create pseudonymous user profiles. Such pseudonymised usage profiles can be used by the data controller to analyse visitor behaviour and to analyse and maintain the proper operation of the live chat system. The analysis also serves to improve our offer. The data collected via this component will not be used to identify the data subject without the prior explicit consent of the data subject. This data is not combined with personal data or with other data containing the same pseudonym.
The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent this component from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by the SnapEngage component can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
The applicable data protection regulations of SnapEngage LLC can be found at
https://www.snapengage.com/privacy-policy/ can be called up.
The data controller has integrated components of Xing on this website. Xing is an Internet-based social network that enables users to connect with existing business contacts and to make new business contacts. Individual users can create a personal profile of themselves on Xing. Companies can, for example, create company profiles or publish job offers on Xing.
Xing is operated by New Work SE (former XING SE), Dammtorstraße 30, 20354 Hamburg, Germany.
Each time a user accesses one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Xing component (Xing plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Xing component to download a representation of the corresponding Xing component from Xing. Further information on the Xing plug-ins can be found at https://dev.xing.com/plugins. As part of this technical process, Xing obtains information about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject.
If the person concerned is logged on to Xing at the same time, Xing recognizes which specific subpage of our website the person concerned is visiting each time the person concerned calls up our website and for the entire duration of their stay on our website. This information is collected by the Xing component and assigned by Xing to the respective Xing account of the person concerned. If the person concerned clicks one of the Xing buttons integrated on our website, for example the "Share" button, Xing assigns this information to the personal Xing user account of the person concerned and stores this personal data.
Xing always receives information via the Xing component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged on to Xing at the same time as accessing our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Xing component or not. If the data subject does not wish this information to be transmitted to Xing, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her Xing account before accessing our website.
The data protection regulations published by Xing, which can be accessed at https://www.xing.com/privacy, provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Xing. Xing has also published data protection information for the XING Share button at
Data protection regulations on the use and application of YouTube
The data controller has integrated YouTube components into this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips for free and other users to view, rate and comment on them, also free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete film and television programmes, but also music videos, trailers or videos created by users themselves can be accessed via the Internet portal.
YouTube is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.
Each time the data subject accesses any of the individual pages of this website operated by the data controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data subject's information technology system is automatically prompted by the relevant YouTube component to download a representation of the relevant YouTube component from YouTube. Further information on YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/. As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google are informed which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject.
If the person concerned is logged in to YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognizes which specific page of our website the person concerned is visiting by calling up a page containing a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the person concerned.
YouTube and Google receive information through the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website whenever the data subject is logged on to YouTube at the same time as he or she visits our website, regardless of whether or not the data subject clicks on a YouTube video. If the data subject does not want this information to be sent to YouTube and Google, he or she can prevent it from being sent by logging out of his or her YouTube account before visiting our website.
