If you have any questions about data protection with regard to our company or our website, you can contact us using the contact details provided under “Controller”.

Security

We have taken comprehensive technical and organisational precautions to protect your personal data from unauthorised access, abuse, loss and other external disruption. To this end, we regularly review our security measures and adapt them to the latest standards.

Your rights

You have the following rights with regard to the personal data concerning you that you can assert against us:

  • Right of access: You can request access to the personal data concerning you which we process, as set forth in Art. 15 GDPR.
  • Right to rectification: If the information concerning you is not (or no longer) correct, you can request its rectification in accordance with Art. 16 GDPR. If your data is incomplete, you can request that it be completed.

If you object, we will not process your data further, unless we can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms. Processing will also continue if the processing serves to establish and exercise or defend against legal claims (Art. 21(1) GDPR). Furthermore, under Art. 21(2) GDPR you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes, which includes profiling to the extent that this is related to such direct marketing. In this privacy policy, we draw your attention to this right to object when describing each processing operation.
  • Right to withdraw your consent: If you have given your consent for processing, you have a right to withdraw that consent under Art. 7(3) GDPR.
  • Right to data portability: You have the right to receive the personal data you have given us in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format (“data portability”) and the right to transfer this data to another controller, if the prerequisites of Art. 20(1)(a), (b) GDPR are fulfilled (Art. 20 GDPR).

You can assert your rights by informing us using the contact details specified under “Controller” above.

If you believe that the processing of your personal data violates data protection law, then under Art. 77 GDPR you also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority of your choice. This also includes the data protection supervisory authority responsible for the controller:

Datatilsynet, PO Box 458 Sentrum, 0105 Oslo, Norway: https://www.datatilsynet.no/en/about-us/contact-us/how-to-complain-to-the-norwegian-dpa/

Using our website

In principle, you can use our website for purely informational purposes without disclosing your identity. When you access the individual pages of the website in this sense, this only results in access data being transferred to our web hosting service so that the website can be displayed to you. This involves the following data being processed:

  • Browser type/browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Language and version of the browser software
  • Date and time of access
  • Hostname of the accessing device
  • IP address
  • Content of the request (specific page)
  • Access status / HTTP status code
  • Websites accessed via the website
  • Referrer URL (website visited before)
  • Notification of whether the access was a success and
  • Volume of data transferred.

It is necessary for this data to be processed temporarily in order to make it technically possible for you to visit our website and to deliver the website to your device. The access data is not used to identify individual users and is not combined with other data sources. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR. We have legitimate interests in ensuring the functionality, integrity and security of the website. The access data will be erased as soon as it is no longer required for achieving the purpose of its processing. In the case of recording the data to provide the website, this is the case when you end your visit to the website.

You may object to the processing. Your right of objection exists if you have reasons arising from your particular situation. You may send us your objection using the contact details specified under “Controller” above.

Device information

In addition to the aforementioned access data, technologies are used when you use the website which store information in your device (e.g. desktop PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone) or access information which is already stored on your device. These technologies may include, for example, cookies, pixels, local storage, session storage, IndexedDB or browser fingerprinting technologies. These technologies can be used to recognise you across devices and websites.

According to Sect. 25(1) of the German Telecommunications and Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDSG), we generally require your consent for the use of these technologies. According to Sect. 25(2) TTDSG, this is only not required if the technologies either enable the transmission of a message via a public telecommunications network or if they are absolutely necessary to provide a telemedia service that you have expressly requested:

Technically necessary device information

Some elements of our website serve the sole purpose of transmitting a message (Sect. (2) No. 1 TTDSG) or are absolutely necessary to provide you with our website or individual features thereof (Sect. 25(2) No. 2 TTDSG):

  • User preferences
  • Log-in information.

The elements are erased after storage is no longer required.

You can prevent processing by adjusting your browser settings accordingly. For elements whose storage duration is not limited to the session, you can adjust your browser settings so that the elements are erased after your session has expired.

Technically non-essential device information

Our website also uses elements that are not technically necessary. We only use these technologies with your consent in accordance with legal requirements. Information about the individual technologies and features can be found in our “Settings” as well as in the following information, which is sorted according to the individual features:

 

“Complianz” consent management platform

To make it easier for us to ask for your consent to the use of cookies or other tracking technologies so that we can process your device information and personal data when you visit our website, we use the consent tool “Complianz”. Complianz gives you the opportunity to accept or decline the processing of your device information and personal data using cookies or other tracking technologies for the purposes listed in Complianz. Such processing purposes may include the integration of external elements, integration of streamed content, statistical analysis, reach measurement, personalised product recommendations, or personalised advertising. You can use Complianz to grant or refuse your consent for all processing purposes, or to grant or refuse your consent for individual purposes or third-party providers. You can change your settings again later on. The purpose of integrating Complianz is to allow users of our website to decide whether to allow cookies and similar technologies, and to offer them the opportunity to change settings that they have already made when they continue to use our website. When Complianz is used, we process personal data as well as information from the devices used. Your data will also be sent to Complianz (Complianz B.V. Kalmarweg 14-5 9723 JG (NL).

 The information about the settings you have made is also stored on your device. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(c) GDPR in conjunction with Art. 7(1) GDPR, insofar as the processing serves to fulfil the legally standardised obligations to provide evidence for the granting of consent. Otherwise, Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR is the relevant legal basis. Our legitimate interests in this processing lie in the storage of users’ settings and preferences with regard to the use of cookies and the evaluation of consent rates. Your user settings will then be saved again for this period, unless you delete the information about your user settings yourself beforehand in your device settings.

You may object to the processing, insofar as processing is based on Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR. Your right of objection exists if you have reasons arising from your particular situation. You may send us your objection using the contact details specified under “Controller” above.

 
 

Contacting our company

When you contact our company, e.g. by email or using the contact form on the website, we will process the personal data you provide so that we can respond to your request. In order for us to process enquiries submitted via the contact form, it is essential that you provide a first and last name, a valid email address, telephone number and country and, if applicable, details from the configurator, and energy storage usage data. Indicating your company is optional. At the time the message is sent to us, your IP address and the date and time of registration will be processed. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR and Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(b) GDPR, if the contact is made with the intention of concluding a contract. If the request is aimed at concluding a contract, it is necessary for you to provide your data. If you do not provide your data, it will not be possible to conclude/execute a contract and process the request. The other data processed during the submission process serves to prevent any misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. As soon as processing is no longer necessary, we erase the data generated here – usually two years after the end of the communication – or, if statutory retention obligations apply, restrict processing of the data.

You may object to the processing. Your right of objection exists if you have reasons arising from your particular situation. You may send us your objection using the contact details specified under “Controller” above.

 

Application process

As part of the application process, we process your contact details such as your name, address, email address, telephone number(s), data from your application documents, in particular certificates, CV, cover letter, date of birth and gender, and, if applicable, special categories of personal data such as marital status and degree of disability. The purpose of this processing is to check your suitability for a position in our company and to conduct the application process. In the case of an (unsolicited) application by email, we also process metadata from your email, such as the date and time, in order to conduct the application process. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(b) GDPR in conjunction with Sect. 26(1) of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), insofar as the data processing is necessary for hiring you and for carrying out the employment relationship. If we process special categories of personal data, the legal basis is Art. 9(2)(b) GDPR in conjunction with Sect. 26(3) BDSG. The provision of your data is necessary and obligatory in order to conclude and execute the contract. You will not be able to apply for a job with us if you do not provide your data. We will store your data for as long as necessary in connection with the employment relationship. As a rule, we will erase your personal data as soon as it is no longer required for the purposes mentioned above and unless otherwise required by law. In particular, we store personal data for as long as we need it to establish legal claims or to defend against claims. Accordingly, in the event of a rejection we erase the data of applicants six months after sending the rejection notification. The legal basis for the processing for legal enforcement purposes is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(b) GDPR in conjunction with Sect. 26(1) BDSG. If we process special categories of personal data, in particular data concerning disabilities, the legal basis is Art. 9(2)(b) GDPR in conjunction with Sect. 26(3) BDSG or Art. 9(2)(f) GDPR. Further details are available in the data protection information for applicants on the careers portal. If you accept a job offer, we will store your data for the subsequent employment relationship within our employee data management system. Further details are available in the data protection information for employees.

Careers portal via Personio

We use the careers portal provided by Personio (Personio GmbH, Rundfunkplatz 4, 80335 Munich, contact: datenschutz@personio.de; hereinafter referred to as “Personio”) for talent acquisition and for the application process. The purposes of the processing are providing a simple form for applicants and digitally organising and implementing job advertisements and recruitment. You can enter the personal data required for your application in the Personio form. When submitting your application via the careers portal, your data from the form and in particular your IP address will also be processed by Personio. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in using the external service provider in order to optimise our digital application process. For further information about the protection of your data and how long Personio stores your data, please refer to: https://www.personio.com/privacy-policy/. In addition, you will find details of further aspects of data processing in connection with your application and processing by Personio in the data protection information for applicants on the careers portal.

You may object to the processing, insofar as it is based on Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR. Your right of objection exists if you have reasons arising from your particular situation. You may send us your objection using the contact details specified under “Controller”.

Processing for contractual purposes

We process your personal data if and to the extent necessary for the initiation, creation, execution and/or termination of a legal transaction with our company. The legal basis for this results from Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(b) GDPR. It is necessary for you to provide your data in order to conclude the contract and you are contractually obliged to provide your data. If you do not provide your data, it will not be possible to conclude and/or execute a contract. Once the purpose has been achieved (e.g. contract processing), the personal data will be blocked for further processing or erased, unless we are entitled to keep processing the data on the basis of a consent granted by you (e.g. consent to the processing of your email address for sending promotional emails), a contractual agreement, a statutory authorisation (e.g. authorisation to send direct marketing) or on the basis of justified interests (e.g. retention for asserting claims).

Your personal data will be passed on to third parties if

  • It is necessary for the creation, execution or termination of legal transactions with our company (e.g. when transmitting data to a payment service provider/a shipping company to process a contract with you), in accordance with Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(b) GDPR), or
  • A subcontractor or party we use to perform our obligations, which we use exclusively within the framework of providing the offers or services requested by you, needs this data (unless you are expressly informed otherwise, such auxiliary parties are only entitled to process the data insofar as this is necessary for the provision of the offer or service), or
  • There is an enforceable official order (Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(c) GDPR), or
  • There is an enforceable court order (Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(c) GDPR), or
  • We are legally obliged to do so (Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(c) GDPR), or
  • The processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person (Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(d) GDPR), or
  • This is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority (Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(e) GDPR), or
  • We can cite our overriding legitimate interests, or those of a third party, in the disclosure (Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR).

Your personal data will not be transmitted to other persons, companies or bodies unless you have effectively consented to such transmission. The legal basis for the processing is then Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(a) GDPR. In this privacy policy, we draw your attention to the respective recipients when describing each processing operation.

Email marketing

Advertising to existing customers

We reserve the right to use the email address you provide when ordering in accordance with the statutory provisions in order to send you the following content by email at the time of or after your order, unless you have already objected to this processing of your email address:

  • Technical information about thermal battery technologies and the EnergyNest storage technology
  • Invitations to events organised by our company to present our products
  • Requests for individual customer advice.

The legal basis of the data processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interests in the processing described lie in enhancing and optimising our services, conducting direct marketing and ensuring customer satisfaction. We will erase your data when you stop using the service, but no later than three years after termination of the contract.

We would like to point out that you can object to receiving direct marketing and to the processing of the data for direct marketing purposes at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. Here you have a general right of objection without giving reasons (Art. 21(2) GDPR). To do this, click on the unsubscribe link in the relevant email or send us your objection to the contact details provided under “Controller”.  

Newsletter

You have the possibility to subscribe to our email newsletter on the website, which we use to inform you regularly about the following content:

  • Offers and information about our products, especially the thermal battery technology as well as the EnergyNest storage technology as well as CO2 reduction possibilities, studies from different sectors, new legal requirements for the industry
  • Technical information about thermal battery technologies and the EnergyNest storage technology
  • Invitations to events organised by our company to present our products
  • Requests for individual customer advice.

In order to receive the newsletter, you need to give us a valid email address. We process the email address for the purpose of sending our email newsletter and for as long as you have subscribed to the newsletter. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(a) GDPR.

You can withdraw your consent to the processing of your email address for the purpose of sending you the newsletter at any time, either by clicking directly on the unsubscribe link in the newsletter or by sending us a message using the contact details provided under “Controller”. This will not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent prior to the withdrawal.

In order to document your newsletter registration and to prevent abuse of your personal data, we use what is known as a double opt-in procedure for email newsletter registrations. Once you have entered the data marked as mandatory, we will send you an email to the email address you have provided, in which we ask you to expressly confirm your subscription to the newsletter by clicking on a confirmation link. We process the date and time of your registration for the newsletter and the time of your confirmation. This is how we ensure that you really want to receive our email newsletter. We are legally obliged to be able to demonstrate that you have consented to the processing of your personal data in connection with registering for the newsletter (Art. 7(1) GDPR). Due to this legal obligation, this data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(c) GDPR. You are not obliged to provide your personal data during the registration process. However, if you do not provide the required personal data, we may not be able to process your subscription or process it in full. If you do not confirm your newsletter subscription within 24 hours, we will erase your data after one month at the latest. Once you confirm your registration, we will process your data for as long as you have subscribed to the newsletter.

We will also process the aforementioned data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(c) GDPR and Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR. In these cases, we have a legitimate interest in the assertion or defence of claims.

You may object to the processing. Your right of objection exists if you have reasons arising from your particular situation. You may send us your objection using the contact details specified under “Controller” above. 

We also statistically evaluate newsletter opening rates, the number of clicks on links in newsletters and the reading time, and measure the reach of our newsletters. For this purpose, user behaviour on our websites and within the newsletters we send out is evaluated on the basis of device-specific information (e.g. email client used and software settings). For this analysis, the emails sent out contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which constitute single-pixel image files that are also embedded on our website. For the purpose of measuring reach, we measure the number of visitors who have reached our websites by clicking on links and who perform certain actions there, such as redeeming vouchers and purchasing products via the online shop. Depending on specific reading behaviour, we also form target groups to whom we then send newsletter content tailored to the identified user interest. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(a) GDPR. We will erase your data if you unsubscribe from the newsletter.

You can withdraw your consent at any time, either by sending us a message (see the contact details under “Controller”) or by clicking directly on the unsubscribe link in the newsletter. This will not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent prior to the withdrawal.

 
 

CleverReach email marketing service

We use the email marketing service CleverReach, which is provided by CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG (CRASH Building Schafjückenweg 2, 26180 Rastede, Germany, hereinafter referred to as “CleverReach”). If you have subscribed to the newsletter, the data provided when registering as well as the data processed when you use our newsletters are processed on CleverReach servers. CleverReach acts as our processor and is contractually limited in its authority to use your personal data for purposes other than to provide services to us in accordance with the applicable data processing agreement. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest in using an external email marketing service lies in the optimisation and more targeted control and monitoring of our newsletter content. For more information about how long CleverReach stores your data and the scope of this data processing, please refer to: https://www.cleverreach.com/de-de/datenschutz/

You may object to the processing, insofar as it is based on Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR. Your right of objection exists if you have reasons arising from your particular situation. You may send us your objection using the contact details specified under “Controller”.

Hosting

We use external hosting services provided by https://www.hetzner.com (Hetzner Online GmbH, Industriestr. 25, 91710 Gunzenhausen, Germany), which serve to provide the following services: infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage resources and database services, security and technical maintenance services. For these purposes, all of the data required for the operation and use of our website – including the access data mentioned under “Using our website” – is processed. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR. By using external hosting services, our aim is to make providing our website efficient and secure.

You may object to the processing. Your right of objection exists if you have reasons arising from your particular situation. You may send us your objection using the contact details specified under “Controller” above.

Content delivery network

Cloudflare

In addition, we use the services of the content delivery network (hereinafter referred to as “CDN”) of Cloudflare, Inc. (101 Townsend St., San Francisco, CA 94107, US; hereinafter referred to as “Cloudflare”) on our website for the purpose of allowing our website to be displayed more quickly. When you visit the website, the CDN caches a library on your device in order to avoid reloading the content. During this process, your IP address is transmitted to the provider in the US. Cloudflare processes your data in the US. No EU Commission adequacy decision exists for data transfers to the US. We have concluded so-called standard contractual clauses with Cloudflare in order to commit Cloudflare to an appropriate level of data protection. A copy is of course available on request. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR. By using Cloudflare, we are pursuing our legitimate interest in faster website retrieval as well as a more effective and improved presentation of our website. For further information about the protection of your data and how long Cloudflare stores your data, please refer to: https://www.cloudflare.com/en-gb/privacypolicy/

You may object to the processing, insofar as it is based on Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR. Your right of objection exists if you have reasons arising from your particular situation. You may send us your objection using the contact details specified under “Controller”.  

 

Integration of third-party content

The website integrates third-party content, such as videos, from other websites. This integration always requires that the providers of this content (“third-party providers”) perceive the IP addresses of users. This is because without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to the browser of the respective user. As such, the IP address is required to display this content. In the following, we inform you about the services from external providers currently in use on our website, about the related processing in each case, and about how you can object or withdraw your consent.

 

Google reCAPTCHA

We use Google reCAPTCHA on our website. This service is provided by Google (Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland and Google, LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, US; hereinafter referred to as “Google” and “reCAPTCHA”). reCAPTCHA is used to check whether data entered on the website (e.g. in a contact form) is provided by a person or by an automated program. To do this, reCAPTCHA analyses various aspects of the way in which the visitor to the website behaves. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the user accesses the website. For the purpose of this analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, time spent by the visitor on the website or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to Google. Google also processes your personal data in the US. No EU Commission adequacy decision exists for data transfers to the US. We have concluded so-called standard contractual clauses with Google in order to commit Google to an appropriate level of data protection. A copy is of course available on request. This data processing occurs on the basis of Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in protecting our website from abusive automated spying and unsolicited email advertising (spam). For more information about reCAPTCHA and how long the data is stored, please refer to Google’s privacy statement: https://policies.google.com/privacy

You may object to the processing, insofar as it is based on Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR. Your right of objection exists if you have reasons arising from your particular situation. You may send us your objection using the contact details specified under “Controller”.  

 

Google Tag Manager

Our website uses Google Tag Manager, which is provided by Google (Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; hereinafter referred to as “Google” and “Google Tag Manager”). Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows website tags and other elements to be managed through a single interface. Firstly, when you visit the website with Google Tag Manager, an HTTP request is sent to Google. As a result, device information and personal data – such as your IP address and information about your browser settings – are transmitted to Google. We use Google Tag Manager to facilitate electronic communications by providing information to third-party providers, including through programming interfaces. Google Tag Manager implements the respective tracking codes of the third-party providers without us having to go to the effort of changing the source code of the website ourselves. Instead, integration is performed by a container that places what is known as placeholder code in the source code. Google Tag Manager also enables the exchange of users’ data parameters in a certain order, in particular by ordering and systematising the data packets. In isolated cases, your data will also be transferred to the US. No EU Commission adequacy decision exists for data transfers to the US. We have concluded so-called standard contractual clauses with Google in order to commit Google to an appropriate level of data protection. A copy is of course available on request. The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR. We have legitimate interests in the processing for the purposes of facilitating and carrying out electronic communication by identifying communication endpoints, control options, exchanging data elements in a defined order, and identifying transmission errors. Google Tag Manager does not initiate data storage. For further information about privacy at Google, please refer to: http://www.google.de/intl/en/policies/privacy

You may object to the processing, insofar as it is based on Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(f) GDPR. Your right of objection exists if you have reasons arising from your particular situation. You may send us your objection using the contact details specified under “Controller”. You can prevent the processing by deleting the browser history and other website data in your browser settings or by opening your browser in “private mode”.

On the other hand, Google Tag Manager integrates tags from third-party providers for example, such as tracking codes or tracking pixels, on our website. The tool triggers other tags, which in turn record your data; our privacy policy explains this separately in each case. Google Tag Manager itself does not evaluate the device information and personal data of users collected by the tags. Rather, your data is forwarded to the specific third-party service for the purposes specified in our consent management tool. We have configured Google Tag Manager to work with our consent management tool in such a way that triggering certain third-party services in Google Tag Manager depends on the selections you make in our consent management tool, so that only those tags from third-party providers trigger data processing for which you have given consent. The use of Google Tag Manager is subject to your consent for the specific third-party service. The legal basis of this processing is your consent under Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(a) GDPR. Google also processes the data in part in the US. No EU Commission adequacy decision exists for data transfers to the US. The legal basis for the transfer to the US is your consent pursuant to Art. 49(1) Sentence 1(a) GDPR. We have also concluded so-called standard contractual clauses with Google in order to commit Google to an appropriate level of data protection. A copy is of course available on request. The following descriptions of the individual third-party services specify how long your data will be stored in each case. For further information about privacy at Google, please refer to: http://www.google.de/intl/en/policies/privacy

You can withdraw your consent to the processing and transfers to third countries at any time by moving the slider back for the specific third-party provider in the consent tool “Settings”. Please note that this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing before your withdrawal.

LinkedIn feed

We have integrated the feed of the social network LinkedIn (Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland; hereinafter referred to as “LinkedIn”) on our website. By embedding the LinkedIn feed, we pursue the purpose of including posts, articles, images and videos that we or other users have published on LinkedIn on this website. This informs LinkedIn that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, some of the data mentioned under “Using our website” is transmitted to LinkedIn. This occurs regardless of whether LinkedIn provides a user account that you are logged in with or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to LinkedIn, your data will be directly associated with your account. If you do not wish for this data to be associated with your LinkedIn profile, you must log out before activating the button. LinkedIn will process your data for purposes of advertising, market research and/or the demand-oriented design of its platform. The legal basis of this processing of your data is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(a) GDPR. LinkedIn processes the data in part on its servers in the US. No EU Commission adequacy decision exists for data transfers to the US. The legal basis for the transfer to the US is your consent pursuant to Art. 49(1) Sentence 1(a) GDPR. We have also concluded so-called standard contractual clauses with LinkedIn in order to commit LinkedIn to an appropriate level of data protection. A copy is of course available on request. For further information about the protection of your data and how long LinkedIn stores your data, please refer to: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy and https://www.linkedin.com/legal/cookie_policy

You can withdraw your consent to the processing and transfers to third countries at any time by moving the slider back in the consent tool Settings. Please note that this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing before your withdrawal.

YouTube videos

Our website uses plug-ins from the video platform YouTube.de or YouTube.com, a service provided by YouTube LLC (head office at 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, US; hereinafter referred to as “YouTube”), for which Google (Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland and Google, LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, US; hereinafter referred to as “Google”) is the controller within the meaning of data protection law. We use this processing of data by the plug-ins to pursue the purpose of integrating visual content (videos) on the website that we have published on YouTube.de or YouTube.com. The videos are all embedded in “extended privacy mode”, which means that no data about you as a user will be transferred to YouTube if you do not play the videos. When videos are played on our website, YouTube receives the information that you have retrieved the corresponding page of our website. In addition, some of the data mentioned under “Using our website” is transmitted to Google. This occurs regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account that you are logged in with or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly associated with your account. If you do not wish for this data to be associated with your YouTube profile, you must log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as user profiles and processes it, regardless of whether you have a Google account, for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the demand-oriented design of its website. The legal basis for this processing is your consent under Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(a) GDPR. Google also processes the data in part in the US. No EU Commission adequacy decision exists for data transfers to the US. The legal basis for the transfer to the US is your consent pursuant to Art. 49(1) Sentence 1(a) GDPR. We have also concluded so-called standard contractual clauses with Google in order to commit Google to an appropriate level of data protection. A copy is of course available on request. For more information about the purpose and scope of data processing by YouTube and how long YouTube or Google stores such data, please refer to Google’s privacy information at: https://policies.google.com/privacy

You can withdraw your consent to the processing and transfers to third countries at any time by moving the slider back for the specific third-party provider in the consent tool “Settings”. Please note that this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing before your withdrawal.

Services for statistical, analysis and marketing purposes

We use services from third parties for statistical, analysis and marketing purposes. This enables us to offer you a user-friendly, optimised experience when visiting the website. The third-party providers use cookies, pixels, browser fingerprinting or other tracking technologies to control their services. In the following, we inform you about the services from external providers currently in use on our website, about the related processing in each case, and about how you can withdraw your consent.

Google Analytics

In order to tailor our website perfectly to user interests, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service from Google (Google Ireland , Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland and Google, LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, US; hereinafter referred to as “Google” and “Google Analytics”). Google Analytics uses cookies (see “Cookies” above), which are stored on your device. Google uses the cookies to process the information generated about the use of our website by your device – e.g. the fact that you have visited a certain page – and process, among other things, the data mentioned under “Using our website”, in particular your IP address, browser information, the website visited before and the date and time of the server request, for the purpose of statistical analysis of how people use our website. For this purpose, it is also possible to determine whether different devices belong to you or to your household. This website uses Google Analytics with the “anonymizeIp()” extension. This shortens IP addresses before they are processed, in order to make it much more difficult to identify individuals. According to Google, your IP address is shortened within member states of the European Union or contracting states of the European Economic Area before being transmitted to Google in the US. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google will process this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of this website, compiling reports for us on website activity, and – where we point this out separately – providing us with other services relating to website usage. If a user is registered with a Google service, Google can associate the visit with the user’s account and create and evaluate user profiles across applications. The legal basis of this processing is your consent under Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(a) GDPR. Google also processes the data in part in the US. No EU Commission adequacy decision exists for data transfers to the US. The legal basis for the transfer to the US is your consent pursuant to Art. 49(1) Sentence 1(a) GDPR. We have also concluded so-called standard contractual clauses with Google in order to commit Google to an appropriate level of data protection. A copy is of course available on request. Your data processed in connection with Google Analytics will be erased after 14 months at the latest. For further information about privacy at Google, please refer to: http://www.google.de/intl/en/policies/privacy

You can withdraw your consent to the processing and transfers to third countries at any time by moving the slider back in the consent tool “Settings”. Please note that this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing before your withdrawal.

Google Ads Conversion

We use Google Ads, which is a service provided by Google (Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland and Google, LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, US; hereinafter referred to as “Google” and “Google Ads”), in order to use ads (formerly known as “Google AdWords”) to draw attention to our attractive services on external websites. In relation to the data of the advertising campaigns, we can determine how successful the individual advertising activities are. These ads are delivered by Google via so-called ad servers. For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, which can be used to measure certain parameters for reach measurement, such as the display of ads or clicks by users. If you reach our website via a Google ad, Google Ads stores a cookie on your device. Google uses the cookies to process the information generated by your device about interactions with our ads (retrieval of a particular web page or clicking on an ad), and the data mentioned under “Using our website” – in particular the IP address, browser information, the website visited before and the date and time of the server request – for the purpose of analysing and visualising the reach measurement of our ads. For this purpose, it is also possible to determine whether different devices belong to you or to your household. Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can associate the visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider will obtain and process your IP address. We only receive statistical analyses from Google for the purpose of measuring the success of our ads. The legal basis of this processing is your consent under Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(a) GDPR. Google also processes the data in part in the US. No EU Commission adequacy decision exists for data transfers to the US. The legal basis for the transfer to the US is your consent pursuant to Art. 49(1) Sentence 1(a) GDPR. We have also concluded so-called standard contractual clauses with Google in order to commit Google to an appropriate level of data protection. A copy is of course available on request. The maximum storage period with Google is 24 months. For further information about the protection of your data and how long Google stores your data, please refer to: https://policies.google.com/privacy

You can withdraw your consent to the processing and transfers to third countries at any time by moving the slider back in the consent tool “Settings”. Please note that this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing before your withdrawal.

LinkedIn Ads (retargeting)

Our website also uses the analysis and retargeting features of LinkedIn Ads, which is provided by LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company (Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland; hereinafter referred to as “LinkedIn”). In particular, LinkedIn uses cookies, tracking pixels and fingerprinting methods to process the information generated about how your device uses our website, in order to record specific user behaviour on our website. This also involves processing information that is stored on users’ devices, e.g. in particular IP addresses, browser information, login data, information about the operating system used and other data mentioned under “Using our website”. This enables us to target users of our website and users of LinkedIn who belong to a comparable target group with interest-based ads when they visit the LinkedIn social network (“LinkedIn Ads”). Thanks to the LinkedIn tracking technologies used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the LinkedIn servers. If you are registered with a LinkedIn service, LinkedIn can associate the information recorded with your user account. Even if you do not have a LinkedIn user account or have not logged in, it is possible that LinkedIn will obtain and process your IP address in particular and other identifying information. We do not personally identify any of the users involved here. We have the option of performing such retargeting for up to 24 months after you visit our website. The legal basis of this processing of your data is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(a) GDPR. LinkedIn processes the data in part on its servers in the US. No EU Commission adequacy decision exists for data transfers to the US. The legal basis for the transfer to the US is your consent pursuant to Art. 49(1) Sentence 1(a) GDPR. We have also concluded so-called standard contractual clauses with LinkedIn in order to commit LinkedIn to an appropriate level of data protection. A copy is of course available on request. For further information about the protection of your data and how long LinkedIn stores your data, please refer to: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy and https://www.linkedin.com/legal/cookie_policy

You can withdraw your consent to the processing and transfers to third countries at any time by moving the slider back in the consent tool “Settings”. Please note that this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing before your withdrawal.

LinkedIn Ads (conversion tracking)

Our website uses the features of LinkedIn Ads, provided by LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company (Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland; hereinafter referred to as “LinkedIn”). If you access our website via an ad from LinkedIn, LinkedIn will place a cookie on your device or in your browser in order to measure the reach of our ads, to make it possible to measure the success of an ad and to continuously improve our ads. LinkedIn uses the cookies to process the information generated by your device about interactions with our ads (e.g. retrieval of a particular web page or click on an ad) as well as, in part, the data mentioned under “Using our website”, such as your IP address, device and browser information, referrer URL as well as timestamps for the purpose of analysing the reach and success of our ads, whereby LinkedIn shortens IP addresses. By using the conversion tracking features of LinkedIn, we can in particular determine the extent to which the ads we have placed have influenced relevant actions on our website. For this purpose, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the LinkedIn server. If you are logged in with a LinkedIn service, LinkedIn can associate the information recorded with your user account, in particular information about your visit to our website. The direct identifiers of registered users processed in this context are removed by LinkedIn within seven days and the remaining data is then erased within 180 days. Even if you do not have a LinkedIn user account or have not logged in, it is possible that LinkedIn will obtain and process your IP address in particular and other identifying information. As part of the evaluation, LinkedIn does not share any personal data with us, but only transmits statistical evaluations to us to measure the success of our ads. This means that we learn in the form of statistics to what extent our ads served on LinkedIn are successful and have led to relevant actions on our website. In the process, we also obtain statistical analyses of which groups of people (e.g. with a certain job title, or from a certain company or industry, etc.) have carried out actions. Based on this, we can specify our target groups and improve the targeting of our ads. The legal basis of this processing of your data is Art. 6(1) Sentence 1(a) GDPR. LinkedIn processes the data in part on its servers in the US. No EU Commission adequacy decision exists for data transfers to the US. The legal basis for the transfer to the US is your consent pursuant to Art. 49(1) Sentence 1(a) GDPR. We have also concluded so-called standard contractual clauses with LinkedIn in order to commit LinkedIn to an appropriate level of data protection. A copy is of course available on request. For further information about the protection of your data and how long LinkedIn stores your data, please refer to: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy and https://www.linkedin.com/legal/cookie_policy

You can withdraw your consent to the processing and transfers to third countries at any time by moving the slider back in the consent tool “Settings”. Please note that this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing before your withdrawal.
