How our consent banner ("cookie banner") works
You use our consent banner ("cookie banner") to specify your privacy settings for visiting our website. In doing so, you can choose whether or not to allow the use of external components. External components are content, plugins or tools, such as fonts, maps, videos or analysis tools, which are provided by third-party providers and integrated into our website. They usually serve to improve your user experience when visiting our website and to provide you with additional - sometimes multimedia - information.
By integrating an external component into the website, the provider of the external components usually gains knowledge of your IP address and the pages you have visited on our website. In addition, some external components transmit further data to the provider and may also set cookies on your computer.
On our website, we use the following external components, which we divide into two categories:
External analysis tools
The consent banner is displayed to you when you visit our website for the first time or you have not yet set your privacy preferences.
The privacy settings you define via our consent banner only apply to our website and, by default, only for the active session (browser session). Once the session has expired (usually after 24 minutes of inactivity), the consent banner will be displayed again. You can avoid the consent banner being displayed again when you start a new session by checking the option "Remember this selection for 30 days" and then making your selection using one of the two buttons.
What does the setting "Use with external components" mean?
This setting integrates the above-mentioned external components directly into the website. When you visit a page on our website that contains external media, such as a video or map, you can interact with that external media immediately and directly. Furthermore, the external analytics tools mentioned above are embedded directly into the site. These analytics tools help us understand how our site is used, what information users are interested in and what information they may be missing, as well as which of our advertising efforts are targeted and which are not. This statistical data from the analytics tools enables us to continuously improve our website, which benefits all website users.
What does the "Use without external components" setting mean?
This setting generally causes external analytics tools not to be used when you visit our website. If you visit a page on our website that has external media embedded directly into the page content, such as a video or map, then a placeholder will be displayed in place of that external media so that no data is transmitted to the provider of the external media. However, you have the option to activate each of these external media by clicking on the respective placeholder. This loads the external medium that you have activated individually and integrates it into the page. The activation by clicking on a placeholder applies once per external medium. This means that if you visit the same page again or another page that contains an external medium, the placeholder will be displayed again and you will have to activate the external medium again by clicking on it if you want to use it.
Can I change my decision or revoke my consent?
You can adjust your decision to use external components at any time by clicking on the button listed below. Furthermore, you can use this button to revoke a previously given consent to use external components at any time by selecting "Use without external components". This selection or the revocation of your consent will delete all cookies that our website has previously set. This does not include cookies set by providers of external components under their own domain. These cannot be read or deleted by us due to browser security restrictions. However, you can have these cookies deleted by functions provided by your browser (details on this can be found below as well as in the operating instructions of your browser).
In the event of a revocation, the legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as site operator.

Some of the Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Cookies can basically be divided into two categories:
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited.
Below you will find an overview of the cookies that are used on our website. Some of these cookies are used in connection with external components and analysis tools and are only used if you give your consent to the use of external components in the consent banner ("cookie banner").
Log files on privacy settings

This data is not merged with other data sources.
The collection of this data is based on Art. 7 (1) GDPR. The article stipulates a proof requirement for consents - for this purpose, the processes of the data protection settings must be recorded with the above-mentioned data.
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
This data is not merged with other data sources.
The collection of this data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimization of its website - for this purpose, the server log files must be collected.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR, if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR) if this has been requested.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.
Inquiry by e-mail, telephone or fax
If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your inquiry including all resulting personal data (name, inquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR, if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR), as we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of requests addressed to us.
The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request).

Google Analytics (with consent)
This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
To ensure data protection on this website, Google Analytics is not integrated into the page when you first enter this website. Google Analytics is only integrated into the page if you agree in the privacy settings in the so-called "cookie banner" that external components may be used (consent according to Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR).
This prevents your data from being transferred to Google Analytics when you first enter the page.
Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
The storage of Google Analytics cookies, the use of this analysis tool and the associated data processing are carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR; consent can be revoked at any time.
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This means that your IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google.
Revocation of data processing and objection to data collection
Furthermore, you can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set, which will prevent the collection of your data during future visits to this website. Please note that this opt-out cookie is only valid for 365 days, only applies to this browser and may be deleted when you delete cookies in your browser.
We have concluded an order processing agreement with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
Data stored by Google at user and event level that is linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. User ID) or advertising IDs (e.g. DoubleClick cookies, Android advertising ID) is anonymized or deleted after 14 months. For details, please see the following link:
LinkedIn Insight Tag
This website uses the Insight tag from LinkedIn. The provider of this service is LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland.
Data processing by LinkedIn Insight tag
With the help of the LinkedIn Insight tag, we receive information about visitors to our website. If a website visitor is registered with LinkedIn, we can, among other things, analyze the key professional data (e.g., career level, company size, country, location, industry and job title) of our website visitors and thus better tailor our site to the respective target groups. Furthermore, we can use LinkedIn Insight tags to measure whether visitors to our websites make a purchase or take another action (conversion measurement). Conversion measurement can also take place across devices (e.g. from PC to tablet). LinkedIn Insight-Tag also offers a retargeting function that allows us to display targeted off-site advertising to visitors to our website, whereby, according to LinkedIn, no identification of the advertising addressee takes place.
LinkedIn itself also collects so-called log files (URL, referrer URL, IP address, device and browser properties and time of access). The IP addresses are shortened or (if they are used to reach LinkedIn members across devices) hashed (pseudonymized). The direct identifiers of LinkedIn members are deleted by LinkedIn after seven days. The remaining pseudonymized data is then deleted within 180 days.
The use of LinkedIn Insight is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in effective advertising measures including social media. LinkedIn Insight tag is only integrated into the page if you agree in the privacy settings in the so-called "cookie banner" that external components may be used. If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user's terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) as defined by the TTDSG.
The consent can be revoked at any time.
Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. Details can be found here:
Object to the use of LinkedIn Insight-Tag
Object to the analysis of usage behavior as well as targeted advertising by LinkedIn under the following link:
Furthermore, you can prevent the collection of your data by LinkedIn by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set, which will prevent the collection of your data during future visits to this website. Please note that this opt-out cookie is only valid for 365 days, only applies to this browser and may be deleted when you delete cookies in your browser.
Furthermore, members of LinkedIn can control the use of their personal data for advertising purposes in the account settings. To avoid a linkage of data collected on our website by LinkedIn and your LinkedIn account, you must log out of your LinkedIn account before visiting our website.
Google Tag Manager (with consent)
This website uses Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager is a tool that can be used to integrate other tools, such as Google Analytics, into a website. The provider is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
According to Google's information, the Google Tag Manager only forwards data collected by embedded tools to them, but does not store it, does not collect any data itself and does not set any cookies.
To ensure data privacy on this website, Google Tag Manager is not embedded into the page when you first enter this website. Google Tag Manager is only integrated into the page if you agree in the privacy settings in the so-called "cookie banner" that external components may be used (consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR).
This prevents your data from being transferred to tools that are integrated via the Tag Manager when you first enter the page.
The following additional tools are integrated into the page via Google Tag Manager:
Legal basis(s) for the use of Google Tag Manager:
Appointment booking via ACUITY SCHEDULING
For the booking of (telephone) appointments, we link on our website to a service of acuityscheduling.com. The provider of this service is Squarespace Ireland Limited, Le Pole House, Ship Street Great, Dublin 8, D08N12C, Ireland. The service is provided by this provider on an external site under the domain acuityscheduling.com.
When you click on a link for (telephone) appointment scheduling, a page from acuityscheduling.com is loaded and thus a connection to the servers of acuityscheduling.com is established. In the process, user data is collected by the aforementioned provider or by acuityscheduling.com.
For more information on the handling of user data collected by acuityscheduling.com, please refer to the provider's privacy statement at:
YouTube with enhanced data protection (with consent)
This website embeds videos from the website YouTube. The operator of the pages is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
To ensure data protection on this website, YouTube videos are disabled when you first enter this website. A direct connection to YouTube's servers is only established when you activate YouTube videos on your own (consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). Activation takes place when you agree in the privacy settings in the so-called "cookie banner" that external components may be used, or you activate a single YouTube video individually by clicking on a video placeholder.
This prevents your data from being transferred to YouTube when you first enter the page.
Furthermore, we only use YouTube in extended data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode has the effect that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. However, the disclosure of data to YouTube partners is not necessarily excluded by the extended data protection mode. Thus, YouTube establishes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network - regardless of whether you watch a video.
With YouTube videos enabled, a connection to YouTube's servers is established as soon as you start a YouTube video on this website. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
Furthermore, YouTube can save various cookies on your end device after starting a video. With the help of these cookies, YouTube can obtain information about visitors to this website. This information is used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve the user experience and prevent fraud attempts. Cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them.
If necessary, further data processing operations may be triggered after the start of a YouTube video, over which we have no control.
Online communication via Klick-Tipp
If you request downloads on our site, such as whitepapers or quick checks, we use an external service from Klick-Tipp to process your request and send you the download link. The provider of this service is KLICK-TIPP LIMITED, 15 Cambridge Court, 210 Shepherd's Bush Road, London W6 7NJ, United Kingdom. The representative of KLICK-TIPP LIMITED within the meaning of Article 27 of the GDPR is Michael Kapst, Rotherstrasse 21, 10245 Berlin, GDPR-Vertreter@klick-tipp.com. We obtain this service through a main contractual relationship with Digistore24 GmbH, St.-Godehard-Straße 32, 31139 Hildesheim. Digistore24 is a reseller that procures products or services, such as Klick-Tipp, and sells them to buyers without significant further processing. With Klick-Tipp itself, we have additionally concluded an order processing in the sense of Article 28 GDPR. This ensures that we have full control over the personal data processed there and that Klick-Tipp implements our instructions in a mirror image.
We store your contact data at Klick-Tipp and process it for the above-mentioned purpose of providing downloads and related communication with you. Furthermore, we have the option at Klick-Tipp to link your personal data with so-called tags. Klick-Tipp distinguishes between two types of tags:
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified e-mail address and agree to receive the newsletter. Further data is not collected or only on a voluntary basis. For the handling of the newsletter, we use newsletter service providers, which are described below.
This website uses Sendinblue to send newsletters. The provider is Sendinblue GmbH, Köpenicker Straße 126, 10179 Berlin, Germany.
Sendinblue is a service with which, among other things, the sending of newsletters can be organized and analyzed. The data you enter for the purpose of receiving the newsletter is stored on Sendinblue's servers in Germany.
Data analysis by Sendinblue
With the help of Sendinblue, it is possible for us to analyze our newsletter campaigns. For example, we can see whether a newsletter message was opened and which links, if any, were clicked. In this way, we can determine, among other things, which links were clicked on particularly often.
In addition, we can see whether certain previously defined actions were performed after opening/clicking (conversion rate). For example, we can see whether you have made a purchase after clicking on the newsletter.
Sendinblue also allows us to subdivide ("cluster") newsletter recipients based on various categories. In doing so, newsletter recipients can be subdivided by age, gender or place of residence, for example. In this way, the newsletters can be better adapted to the respective target groups.
If you do not want Sendinblue to analyze your newsletter, you must unsubscribe. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message.
For detailed information on the Sendinblue functions, please refer to the following link:
Data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you provide to us for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from the newsletter distribution list after you unsubscribe. Data that has been stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this.
After you have unsubscribed from the newsletter distribution list, your e-mail address will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider in a blacklist, if necessary, to prevent future mailings. The data from the blacklist will only be used for this purpose and will not be merged with other data. This serves both your interest and our interest in complying with legal requirements when sending newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) f GDPR). The storage in the blacklist is not limited in time. You can object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest.
For more details, please refer to the data protection provisions of Sendinblue at:
We have concluded an order processing agreement (AVV) with the above-mentioned provider. This is a contract required by data protection law, which ensures that this provider only processes the personal data of our website visitors in accordance with our instructions and in compliance with the GDPR.
