Data processing when visiting our website

1. Logfiles

When the website is visited, we collect what is referred to as access data and store this in a logfile. This access data also includes your IP address. In addition, the name of the website that you visited, the file accessed, the date and time of access, the volume of data transferred and notification of successful access, the browser type and version, the operating system, what is referred to as the referrer URL (the previously visited page) and the requesting provider are stored in the logfile. We collect such technical information only for the purposes of securing our technical infrastructure and so that you can view the website correctly (Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR).

The logfiles, and thus the IP address contained therein, are automatically deleted no later than ten days after collection. Users are neither legally nor contractually required to provide the aforementioned personal data. However, without the data, in some circumstances the service and the functionality of our website cannot be guaranteed or individual services may be unavailable or limited.

2. Cookies

a) Subject matter and purpose of the data processing

When a user visits our websites, cookies are stored on the user’s end device (laptop, tablet, smartphone or PC). These cookies have different functions. The cookies referred to as “essential cookies” are absolutely essential in order to provide the basic functions of the website. The data processing performed using these cookies is based on Article 6( 1)( f) of the GDPR. Preference cookies are needed to store certain user settings (e.g. language, cookie settings) that provide more convenient surfing and optimal use of our website. The data processing performed using these cookies is also carried out on the basis of Article 6( 1)( f) of the GDPR. As such, we consider the conflicting interests to be balanced, as no tracking is performed nor is user behaviour analysed using these cookies.

Statistics cookies analyse user and visitor behaviour on our website. These cookies can be used to create profiles (usually anonymous) in order to optimize our offers and services and to adapt them to the preferences of our visitors and talents. Marketing cookies allow us to display customized advertisements on our websites or those of third parties, which are (automatically) selected based on the preferences and browsing behaviour of visitors. The use of these cookies requires your prior consent and is therefore based on Article 6( 1)(a) of the GDPR.

b) Overview of the cookies, storage period and deletion

You can find details about the cookies used on the website, the providers of these cookies, and the specific purpose that the cookies are used for in the privacy settings. You can use these settings to revoke your consent to the data processing at any time; such revocation does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent up to that point. Users are neither legally nor contractually required to provide the aforementioned personal data.

3. Consent tool

We use “Cookiebot”, a tool from the company Cybot A/S (Cybot), Havnegade 39, 1058 Copenhagen, Denmark to manage the cookies used on our website and to enable our visitors to consent to the use of cookies or to cancel the storage of them. If you give your consent to the use of individual cookies, the (anonymised) visitor IP address, the date and time of consent; the user agent of the browser, our URL and an anonymous, random and encrypted key are transmitted to Cybot. The encrypted key and the cookie status are stored on your end device in order to establish the corresponding cookie status when you visit the site in the future. The legal basis for this data processing is Article 6( 1)( c) of the GDPR, as we are legally obliged, inter alia, to obtain your consent for certain cookies and must give you the option to easily delete the cookies.

4. Web analysis tools (statistics)

Our website uses what are referred to as tracking or web analysis tools, which enable us to analyse the user behaviour of visitors to our website and to optimise our offers accordingly. With the help of these tools and the cookies used in the process, it is possible, for example, to analyse how and from where visitors come to our site, which areas of a website are visited particularly often and how often and for how long which sub-pages and categories are viewed. In addition, we can determine what search terms and websites the user has entered and analyse which information or offers are most in demand. The aim is to be able to use the knowledge gained in this way to organise our offers and our website in a user-friendly manner and to gear our offers more specifically to our customers, visitors and interested parties. The legal basis in this respect is Article 6( 1)( a) of the GDPR. You can also revoke your consent to the data processing at any time; such revocation does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent up to that point.

For web and user analysis, we work with professional service providers who compile user statistics on our behalf (and with your consent). The basis of this contractual relationship is, inter alia, the obligation of the providers to have taken special precautions to protect your data and to process all personal data only in accordance with our instructions (Article 28 of the GDPR, or on the basis of what are referred to as the EU Standard Contractual Clauses).

The details of the providers involved in this processing can be found in your privacy settings.

5. Remarketing tools (marketing)

We also use what are referred to as remarketing tools on our website. These tools allow us to display or have displayed on our websites customized advertisements that are (automatically) selected using visitor preferences. In technical terms, advertising tracking is usually performed using advertising IDs. Here cookies, among other things, are used by the providers of advertising networks to create profiles of users and advertising is displayed on the basis of these cookie profiles when a website is accessed. These types of remarketing offers thus enables users to be presented with interesting offers. In many cases, tracking is also carried out via what are referred to as browser fingerprints. Here, information such as the individual settings for screen resolution, colour depth, time zone and plug-ins installed are used to recognise users or groups of users.

Using remarketing tools, we can target our offer more specifically at our customers, visitors and interested parties and also earn money from displaying the advertisements. In addition, we can use user behaviour to determine which areas of our website may be of particular interest to visitors so that we can insert advertising in a targeted manner. Due to the use of the cookies required, the legal basis is Article 6 ( 1)( a) of the GDPR, which is why we also obtain your consent in advance here.

The details of the providers involved in this processing can be found in your privacy settings.
