Furthermore, in the context of using services, you may possibly provide us with further data – going beyond the data required for the provision of the services (such as: industry, professional group, professional position, etc.) – on a voluntary basis, for example in corresponding form fields. This data will be used by us for the needs-based design of our offers, for product information for advertising, for customer care or for a purpose specifically and explicitly stated in the registration form.

We process your personal data at least for the duration of the business relationship. However, if we are required to store data for a longer period due to legal obligations, the time limits specified in the respective laws and regulations will be observed.

VII. Cookies

Our website uses so-called cookies in several places. These serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser and/or using add-ons to your browser, however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. Our website contains an embedded functionality (“cookie banner”), where you can independently determine the scope of the cookie use within the framework of the legal requirements and consent to the scope of use.

VIII. Automated data processing on our website

When you visit our website, certain data is automatically stored for system administration, statistical or backup purposes. This data may include the name of your Internet service provider, your IP address, the version of your browser software, the operating system of the computer used to access our site, the Internet site from which you visit us, the Internet pages you visit on our site and, if applicable, search terms you used to find our site. This automatically collected data may, under certain circumstances, allow conclusions to be drawn about a specific visitor to the website. The use of such data is exclusively anonymous. Further information can be found under “Google Analytics Legal Notice”.

IX. Google Analytics Legal Notice

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc (“Google”). Google Analytics also uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. The use of such data is exclusively anonymous. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, or by clicking on the embedded cookie banner; however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

X. Use of social media plugins and associated cookies

Social plugins (“Plugins”) of the social network LinkedIn, XING and Facebook (Meta) may be used on our website. These services are offered by the companies LinkedIn Inc, XING SE and Meta Platforms Ireland Limited (“providers”).

In order to increase the protection of your data when visiting our website, the plugins are integrated into the site by means of a so-called “2-click solution”. This integration ensures that when you call up a page of our website that contains such plugins, no connection is yet established with the servers of the providers. Only when you activate the plugins by clicking on the share buttons and thus give your consent to the data transmission, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of the providers. The content of the respective plugin is then transmitted directly to your browser by the associated provider and integrated into the page.

By integrating the plugins, the provider receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged in to LinkedIn or XING or Facebook via your user account while visiting our website, the provider can assign the visit to your user account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the “Share” button, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to the provider and stored there.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by LinkedIn or XING or Facebook, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, can be found in the privacy notices of the providers:

XI. Friendly Captcha

The Friendly Captcha service is a solution/service provided by Friendly Captcha GmbH, Am Anger 3-5, 82237 Wörthsee, Germany. Friendly Captcha is a privacy-friendly protection solution to make it more difficult for automated programs and scripts (so-called “bots”) to use our website.

For this purpose, we have integrated a script from Friendly Captcha into our website (e.g. for contact forms) so that the visitor’s device can establish a connection to the servers of Friendly Captcha in order to receive a calculation task from Friendly Captcha. The visitor’s device solves the computational problem, which requires certain system resources, and sends the calculation result to our web server. The user contacts the Friendly Captcha server via an interface and receives an answer as to whether the puzzle has been solved correctly by the end device. Depending on the outcome, we may apply security rules to requests via our website, such as processing or rejecting them.

The data will only be used for the protection against spam and bots described above.

When you visit a website that contains the Friendly Captcha widget and submit a puzzle request, the following log data is collected:

1. The Request Headers User-Agent, Origin und Referer.

2. The puzzle itself, which contains information about the account and the website key to which the puzzle refers.

3. The version of the widget.

4. A timestamp.

Friendly captcha’s service includes an anonymized counter per IP address to dynamically scale puzzle difficulty on the edge network to detect malicious users and minimize the blocking of legitimate users. This data is stored separately from the rest of the data and cannot be associated with specific websites. This service anonymizes IP addresses via one-way hashing so that they cannot be personally identified.

The use of this service alone does not ask for any personal information, such as your name, email address, and online profiles. friendlycaptcha’s end-user solution does not use cookies on its own.

The legal basis for the processing is our legitimate interests in protecting our website from abusive access by bots, i.e. spam protection and protection against attacks (e.g. mass enquiries), Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

XII. LinkedIn-Insight Tag

We use the website analytics feature LinkedIn Insight-Tag from LinkedIn IrelandUnlimited Company (Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2 Ireland; “LinkedIn”). The LinkedIn Insight tag enables the collection of data from your visit to our website, including URL, referrer URL, IP address, device and browser properties (user agent), and timestamp. IP addresses are shortened or hashed. LinkedIn does not share any personally identifiable information with us, but uses the data collected on our website for reports (in which you are not identified) about website visitors and ad performance. LinkedIn also provides retargeting for website visitors on LinkedIn, so we can use this data to display targeted ads outside of our website without identifying you. LinkedIn also uses data that does not identify you to improve the relevance of ads and reach members across devices. If you do not want this to happen, you can opt out of retargeting. For more information on privacy related to LinkedIn, please see here. The use of the LinkedIn insight tag and the associated tracking is based on your consent.
