We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of concrete evidence of illegal use. The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve its purpose, at the latest however after 50 months.
This website uses "cookies". Cookies are text files that are created by the browser and saved on your terminal device (computer, tablet, smartphone, or similar device) when you visit our website. Cookies do not cause any damage to your terminal device and do not contain any viruses, Trojans, or other malware. Information for the use of our website is saved in the cookies.

1.2.3. Liability for Own Content

2. Incorporation of External Content
In order to be able to provide visitors to our website with all the information about our products and services, we are sometimes obliged to incorporate content from other providers on our website. We shall provide an explanation of this in the following.
We use different plug-ins from other service providers on our website. A plug-in is a software component which enables us to show external content on our own website. We shall provide you with an explanation of this in the following.
2.1.1. Google Maps
On the About us page, you can see the entrance area of our headquarters in Hamburg, Germany, in a 360° tour. This visualization is enabled by a Google Maps plug-in on the legal basis of our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR.
Google Maps is used to show maps and to create directions which make it easier for you to visit us. Google Maps is operated by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. You are notified of use accordingly. When you access a website in which Google Maps is embedded, a connection is established to Google's servers and your IP and browser data transferred to Google. By using this service, you also agree to the processing of the data you enter in the course of this by Google. You can find the usage terms and conditions for Google Maps at https://www.google.cn/intl/en-GB_ALL/help/terms_maps/.
2.2. Social Media Links
On our website, a distinction is to be made between our own content and the links to content made available by other providers. We do not have any influence over their content. The respective provider or operator is always responsible for the content of the linked website.
Our website has links to the Facebook website. The operator of the website is Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. Instead of Facebook plug-ins, we decided to only link to Facebook so that when you visit our website your personal data is not automatically transferred to Facebook. This technical solution also prevents us automatically collecting your personal data in this regard. Through the links, Facebook will also only process your personal data when you actively click on the Facebook button and are also logged into your Facebook account at the same time. We do not have any influence on the type and scope of your personal data that Facebook processes. You can find further information on how your data is handled in Facebook's Data Policy at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy.
Our website has links to the Instagram website. The operator of the website is Instagram Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA. We only link to the Instagram website, instead of integrating an Instagram plug-in.
This means that when you visit our website, your personal data will not be automatically transferred to Instagram. Through the links, Instagram will only process your personal data when you actively click on the Instagram button and are also logged into your Instagram account at the same time. We do not have any influence on the type and scope of your personal data that Instagram processes. You can find further information on how your data is handled in Instagram's Data Policy at https://www.facebook.com/help/instagram/155833707900388.
For the purpose of the appropriate presentation of our advertisements, in accordance with Art. 6(1)(1)(a) GDPR, we record the behavior of our website visitors on and outside of our website using pixels from third-party providers. We shall provide an explanation of this in the following.
3.1. Facebook Marketing Pixel
Using the Facebook pixel, we process information regarding the activities of website visitors outside of Facebook. This includes information about the device of the website visitor, the websites visited, purchases made, adverts that the website user has seen, as well as information on how the user uses our website. This happens irrespective of whether you have a Facebook account or are logged into Facebook.
If you have agreed to the processing of your personal data through the use of the Facebook marketing pixel, and you would like to withdraw your consent at a later point in time, you can do this by deactivating the Facebook Marketing function at https://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=ads# when you are logged in as a Facebook user. You can find information on how you can generally deactivate interest-based online advertising from Facebook and other companies participating in the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance (if, for example, you do not have a Facebook account) at: https://www.youronlinechoices.com/.
You can find further information on data processing by Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
3.2. LinkedIn Insight Tag
The data is encrypted, anonymized within seven days, and deleted within 90 days. LinkedIn does not forward this personal data to us, the operator of this website. LinkedIn only provides compiled reports about the website target group and the performance of the advertisements. LinkedIn also provides retargeting for website visitors so that our advertising can be shown to you on websites you visit.
If you have consented to the processing of your personal data through the use of the LinkedIn Insight Tag and you would like to withdraw your consent at a later point in time, you can do this by changing your browser settings. We explain how you can do this in our Cookie Declaration. LinkedIn members can alternatively also control the use of their personal data for advertising purposes using their account settings. Here, follow this link to the LinkedIn site: https://www.linkedin.com/start/join.
4. Data Security
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (for example when communicating via e-mail) may have security issues. It is not possible to completely protect your data from being accessed by third parties. Despite this, we do our best to protect your personal data as best as possible. We take the following measures accordingly.
4.1. SSL Certificate
We have integrated a standard SSL certificate on our website. SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer and is the most widely used cryptographic protocol for encrypting personal data. In this way, we can ensure that your personal data is transferred via this secure SSL connection. You can recognize the SSL connection from the padlock symbol and the "s" attached to http (i.e. https) in the address bar of your browser.
4.2. Forwarding of Data
Your data is categorically not forwarded to third parties for commercial or non-commercial purposes without your express consent. We only forward your personal data to third parties when this is legally permitted (for example on the basis of Article 6 GDPR) and/or necessary. Sometimes we use service providers as part of order processing in accordance with Article 28 GDPR; the website is hosted and maintained by F7 Media GmbH in this way. We remain completely responsible for data processing here.
We would also like to point out that for the purposes mentioned above, we may also forward your personal data onto other companies within our Group (please see Subsidiaries page). Data transfer takes place on the basis of a legitimate interest in order to be able to provide you with a comprehensive service offer.
