Analysis services for websites, tracking

On our website we use the website analysis service for websites from:

Google Analytics

To tailor our website to your needs, we create pseudonymous usage profiles using Google Analytics. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and which enable your use of this website to be analyzed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of our website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Since we have activated IP anonymization on our website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and only shortened there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this website for us, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. For example, we use Google Analytics to evaluate clicks from Google AdWords for purely statistical purposes. You can find information about Google's use of data at and at

The legal basis for the use of the analysis tools is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 Letter f) GDPR. Website analysis is in the legitimate interest of our company and serves to statistically record page usage in order to continually improve our website and the range of services we offer.

Social network plugins (Social Plugins)

Plugins from the following social networks are integrated into our website:


Our website uses functions of the XING network. The provider is XING AG, Dammtorstraße 29-32, 20354 Hamburg, Germany.

Every time you access one of our pages that contains XING functions, a connection is established to XING servers. To our knowledge, personal data is not stored. In particular, no IP addresses are stored or usage behavior is evaluated.

Further information about data protection and the XING Share button can be found in the XING data protection declaration at:

The legal basis for the use of social plugins is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 Letter f) GDPR. A legitimate interest of our company and the purpose of using social network plugins is to make our offering known to a broad audience. The social networks are responsible for handling their users’ data in accordance with data protection regulations.

Your rights as a data subject

If your personal data is processed when you visit our website, you as the “data subject” within the meaning of the GDPR have the following rights:

Use of Google Maps

Our website uses the Google Maps API. By using Google Maps, information about your use of this website (including your IP address) may be transmitted to a Google server (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, California, 94043) in the USA and stored there.

Google may transfer the information obtained through Maps to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. However, your IP address will under no circumstances be associated with other Google data. However, we must point out that it would be technically possible for Google to identify individual users based on the data received.

We also have no influence on whether your personal data and personality profiles are processed by Google for other purposes. If you want to avoid this at all costs, you can deactivate the Google Maps service and thus prevent data transfer to Google. To do this, you simply need to deactivate JavaScript in your browser. In this case, no data will be transferred, but you will no longer be able to use the map display on our website.

The Google privacy policy can be found at

The use of Google Maps represents a service for you so that you can accurately identify our location and, if necessary, better plan your visit to us. The use of Google Maps is therefore based on our legitimate interests in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

You dispute the accuracy of the personal data. In this case, the restriction can be requested for the period of time that enables us to check the accuracy of the data.

Restriction of processing means that the personal data will only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest. Before we lift the restriction, we have a duty to inform you about it.

You can object to the processing of your personal data for direct advertising purposes at any time. This also applies to profiling that is associated with such direct advertising. After exercising this right of objection, we will no longer use the relevant personal data for direct advertising purposes.

You have the option of informing us of your objection informally by telephone, email, or to our company's postal address listed at the beginning of this data protection declaration.

Withdrawal of consent

You have the right to revoke your consent at any time with future effect. The revocation of consent can be communicated informally by telephone, email or to our postal address.
