2) Data collection when visiting our website
When you use our website for information purposes only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us, we only collect the data that your browser transmits to our server (so-called "server log files"). When you access our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to display the website to you:

3) Hosting (Webflow)
Within the framework of our legitimate interest in a technically flawless online offer and its economically efficient design and optimisation pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, we have created this website with the website system Webflow of Webflow Inc, 398 11th Street, 2nd Floor, San Francisco, California, 94103, USA.
Our website system enables us to create our website and keep it ready for retrieval in the worldwide hosting network of our website system provider. Our website system provider collects usage data in the same way as any other hoster. This is identified and non-identifiable data when you visit our website. This data is either made available to our website system provider or collected automatically through the use of services ("non-personal data"). On the basis of such non-personal data, it is not possible for our website system to trace the origin of the data. The Non-Personal Information is technical and usage information, such as the browsing and clickstream behaviour of visitors and users of Services and Scrolls, as well as non-identifying information about the user's or visitor's device used, operating system, browser, screen resolution, language and keyboard settings, ISP, referring/exit pages, date/time stamp, etc.
As a hoster, however, our website system provider also collects data that can identify a person with manageable effort ("personal data"). In principle, this personal data is all data that you enter when using the website. This may include contact details (for example, email address or telephone number), billing details (name, billing address, payment method and bank details), browser or user session details (IP address, geographical location and/or unique terminal identifier), details of related third party accounts (such as the email address or username for a related PayPal, Google or Facebook account), scanned identification documents provided to us (for example, ID, driving licence, passport or official company registration documents), and any other personal data.
This will transfer your data to the USA. We have entered into a contract with our website system provider in accordance with the standard contractual clauses, in which our provider guarantees protection of your data in accordance with the requirements of the GDPR.
Our website system provider takes physical, electronic and procedural security measures to protect personal data. Among other things, Webflow only provides encrypted access to our website.
4) Content Delivery Network
On our website we use the Content Delivery Network ("CDN") "AWSCloudFront" of the service provider "Amazon" (Amazon EU S.a. r.l., 38 avenue John F.Kennedy, L-1855 Luxembourg).
A content delivery network is an online service that is used in particular to deliver large media files (such as graphics, page content or scripts) through a network of regionally distributed servers connected via the Internet. The use of Amazon's Content Delivery Network helps us to optimise the loading speeds of our website.
The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in the secure and efficient provision and improvement of the stability and functionality of our website.

8) Use of customer data for direct advertising
8.1 Subscription to our e-mail newsletter
If you register for our e-mail newsletter, we will send you information about our offers on a regular basis. Only your e-mail address is required for sending the newsletter. The provision of further data is voluntary and will be used to address you personally. We use the so-called double opt-in procedure for sending the newsletter. This means that we will only send you an e-mail newsletter if you have expressly confirmed that you agree to receive the newsletter. We will then send you a confirmation e-mail asking you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter in future by clicking on an appropriate link.
By activating the confirmation link, you give us your consent for the use of your personal data in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. When you register for the newsletter, we store your IP address entered by your Internet service provider (ISP) as well as the date and time of registration in order to be able to trace any possible misuse of your e-mail address at a later date. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time via the link provided in the newsletter or by sending a message to the responsible person mentioned above. After unsubscribing, your e-mail address will be deleted from our newsletter distribution list immediately, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use your data for other purposes that are permitted by law and about which we inform you in this declaration.

The data processing is carried out solely on the basis of our legitimate interest in personalised direct advertising in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If you have initially objected to the use of your e-mail address for this purpose, we will not send you any e-mails. You are entitled to object to the use of your e-mail address for the aforementioned advertising purpose at any time with effect for the future by notifying the responsible person named at the beginning. You will only be charged transmission costs according to the basic rates. After receipt of your objection, the use of your e-mail address for advertising purposes will cease immediately.
8.3 Newsletter dispatch via ActiveCampaign
Our email newsletters are sent via the technical service providerActiveCampaign, LLC, 150 N. Michigan Ave Suite 1230, Chicago, IL, US, USA ("ActiveCampaign"). Michigan Ave Suite 1230, Chicago, IL, US, USA ("ActiveCampaign"), to whom we pass on the data you provided when registering for the newsletter.

The data you provide for the purpose of receiving the newsletter (e.g. email address) will be stored on ActiveCampaign servers in the USA.
ActiveCampaign uses this information to send and statistically analyse the newsletter on our behalf. For the evaluation, the emails sent contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which are single-pixel image files that are stored on our website. This makes it possible to determine whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links have been clicked on. With the help of so-called conversion tracking, it can also be analysed whether a predefined action (e.g. purchase of a product on our website) has taken place after clicking on the link in the newsletter. In addition, technical information is collected (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system). The data is collected exclusively in pseudonymous form and is not linked to your other personal data; direct personal reference is excluded. This data is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients.
If you wish to object to the data analysis for statistical evaluation purposes, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter.
We have entered into a Data Processing Agreement with ActiveCampaign under which we require ActiveCampaign to protect our customers' data and not to disclose it to third parties.

11.1 Facebook Pixel for the creation of Custom Audiences (with Cookie Consent Tool)Within our online offer, the so-called "Facebook Pixel" of the social network Facebook is used, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 GrandCanal Quare, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook").
If a user clicks on an advertisement placed by us and displayed on Facebook, an addition is added to the URL of our linked page by Facebook Pixel. If our site allows data to be shared with Facebook via pixels, this URL parameter is written to the user's browser via a cookie that our linked site sets itself. This cookie is then read by Facebook Pixel and enables the data to be forwarded to Facebook.
With the help of the Facebook pixel, it is possible for Facebook to determine the visitors to our online offer as a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called "Facebook ads"). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel in order to display the Facebook ads that are not switched on only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products that are determined on the basis of the websites visited), which we transmit to Facebook (so-called "Custom Audiences"). With the help of the Facebook pixel, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and are not annoying. This also allows us to evaluate the effectiveness of the Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by tracking whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called "conversion").
The data collected is anonymous for us, i.e. it does not allow us to draw any conclusions about the identity of the user. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook, so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with the Facebook data usage policy (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/). The data may enable Facebook and its partners to serve ads on and off Facebook.
The data processing associated with the use of the Facebook Pixel is only carried out with your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. aDSGVO. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your revocation, remove the checkmark next to the setting for the "Facebook Pixel" in the "Cookie Consent Tool" integrated on the website.

Google uses the information obtained in this way to evaluate your usage behaviour with regard to the AdSense ads. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google AdSense will not be merged with other Google data. The information collected by Google may be transferred to third parties if this is required by law and/or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.
The processing of data described above is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO for the purpose of targeting the user with advertising by advertising third parties whose advertisements are displayed on this website on the basis of the evaluated user behaviour. This processing also serves our financial interest in exploiting the economic potential of our website by displaying personalised third-party advertising content against payment.

Google(Universal) Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site.
