4. Collection and Processing of Personal Data

To enable this, data regarding your IP address, the date and time of your retrieval and the type of your operating system are stored and used for a maximum of 30 days. We reserve the right to store such data for a limited period of time in order to protect our legitimate interests and, in the event of unauthorised access or attempts to cause us deliberate damage, to initiate the tracing of personal data (Art. 6 para. 1(f) GDPR). Such data will be stored or transmitted by us for this purpose only and for no other purpose, without us informing you in advance and asking for your permission.
Cookies can usually be disabled or removed by using tools provided in most commercial browsers. The settings must be defined and individually set for each browser you use. For this purpose, the various browsers provide different functions and options. anonyme

Types of Cookies:
In order to explain the most common types of cookies to you in more detail, we have explained them below for your understanding:
Session cookies allow users and the changes they have made within a website to be recognised. They allow the website to track their movements across individual pages so that data that has already been entered/stored does not have to be entered/stored again, for example shopping carts used by online shops. The respective session cookie stores the chosen items in the shopping cart so that it contains the correct items when paying at the checkout. Session cookies are deleted when logging out or lose their validity once the session has expired automatically.
Persistent or Protocol Cookies:
A persistent or protocol cookie stores user information and settings on the user’s computer for the period of time defined by the respective cookie’s expiration date. This speeds up your access and makes it more convenient, for instance because you do not need to adjust your language settings or re-enter your login data every time. Such cookie is automatically deleted once the expiration of its storage period is reached.
Third-party cookies usually have no influence on the use of the site, as they do not originate from the operator of the website. For example, they serve the purpose of collecting data for advertising, custom content and web statistics and passing it on to the respective third party provider.
Tracking cookies are special text files that provide the opportunity to collect data about the behaviour of an Internet user. This is intended to provide information about the user’s main interests, for example, in order to be able to place customised promotions. Tracking cookies are therefore set not only when logging in, but automatically when visiting the website.
4.1.3 Using our contact forms
Our website provides contact forms, allowing you to get in touch with us for various purposes. To ensure a secure transfer of your data, we use a state-of-the-art encrypted connection that is protected by SSL certificate. By clicking on the “Submit Form” button you agree to transmit the data entered in the input mask to us. We store your name and e-mail address and, where appropriate, any other information you provide in order to be able to contact you and answer your enquiry in the best possible way. By doing this, on the one hand we can offer you the service you expect from us, and on the other hand we have the opportunity to continuously improve ourselves (Art. 6 para. 1(f) GDPR).
Our website also provides forms that can be used to send us your application. In addition to the information mentioned above, further information is required, which is necessary to take the measures required for your enquiry (Art. 6 para. 1(f) GDPR). Such information includes, among other others:
- Contact details

- Language skills
Your data will only be processed to evaluate your application and stored to be recognised in the event of any renewed application.
4.1.4 Tracking Tools
Our website uses functions of various web analysis services from other companies such as Google Inc. Below, we explain in more detail which services are involved and which data are analysed.
Use of Google Analytics with Anonymisation Function
If you want to decide on your own which data Google may collect regarding the website you visit, you can download a deactivation add-on for your Internet browser. However, such an add-on does not prevent data from being transmitted to us or other web analysis services used by us. For more information about using and installing the add-on, please visit:https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
4.1.5 Shariff solution by c’t
Our website uses the so-called “Shariff solution” for sharing our content. In this way, we protect your privacy and prevent the unwanted transfer of data about your surfing habits through social media plug-ins such as Facebook, Google or Twitter. Social media plug-ins are usually integrated into websites via so-called “iframes”. As a result, personal data such as the IP address or locally stored cookies is already communicated to the social media services when loading the site. “Shariff” replaces social media plug-ins with simple HTML links and a script retrieves how often a site has already been shared or tweeted. Instead of your IP address, only our server address is communicated to the social media services. Only if you actively click on a plug-in, your above mentioned personal data will be transmitted by your consent. For more information on the “Shariff solution” by c’t, please visit: https://github.com/heiseonline/shariff.
4.1.6 Social-Media Plugins
All information about the different plug-ins given below only applies provided that the Shariff solution by c’t is not used. Our website uses this solution so that no information is communicated to social media services without your consent.
Our website uses various social media plug-ins to expand and link our own Internet presence via social networks.
In the following, we will explain in more detail which plug-ins are involved.
Our website contains plugins of the social network “Facebook”, which belongs to Facebook Inc.1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA, hereinafter referred to as “Facebook“. Facebook plug-ins can be identified by one of the Facebook logos (white „f“ on a blue background, terms such as “Like”, “Gefällt mir”, “Share”, “Teilen”, “Follow”, “Folgen” or a “Thumbs up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin”. For any relevant information about the appearance and functions of the plug-ins, please visit: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins.
From the moment you access our site, the stored plug-in establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook servers. We as website operators have no influence on which and to what extent such plug-in transmits data to Facebook. According to Facebook, this is data about your visit to our site (e.g. IP address, date and time). However, once you click on one of the plug-ins, additional data are transmitted that can associate you directly with your Facebook account (if you have such an account and are logged in to it). Facebook processes such data to provide you with a personalised user experience on our website and to upgrade its own products. For more information, please visit: https://www.facebook.com/help/186325668085084.
Our website contains functions (plug-ins) of the microblogging service Twitter, which are provided by Twitter Inc, 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA, hereinafter referred to as “Twitter”. Such plug-ins are identifiable by one of the Twitter logos (white bird profile on a light blue background, or the other way around, and the addition “tweet”). When visiting our website, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Twitter servers. So-called “log data” are sent to Twitter via this connection, even if you do not have a Twitter account. According to Twitter, this may be your IP address, browser type, operating system or information about the websites you visit. Your web activity is not associated with your name, email address, phone number or your Twitter username. Twitter deletes, obfuscates or aggregates your log data after a maximum of 30 days. According to Twitter, all data collected by Twitter are used to personalise, evaluate and enhance its own services.
ou can define your personalisation settings under https://twitter.com/personalization.
You can change your Twitter privacy settings in your account settings under https://twitter.com/login?redirect_after_login=%2Faccount%2Fsettings.
This website incorporates plug-ins from the LinkedIn social network of LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, hereinafter referred to as “LinkedIn”. You can typically identify them by the LinkedIn logo (the letters “in” in white on a blue background) and added text such as “share” or “teilen”. All information about the appearance of the LinkedIn plug-ins is provided under the following link: https://developer.linkedin.com/plugins.
Our website uses the features of the XING network. The supplier is XING AG, Dammtorstraße 29-32,20354 Hamburg, Germany. Each time you access one of our pages that contains Xing's features, you will be connected to Xing's servers. To the best of our knowledge, personal data will not be stored.
