Cookies cannot run any programs or place viruses on your computer. The purpose of cookies is to make the Internet service more user friendly and more effective as a whole.
This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and functions of which will be explained below:
a) Temporary cookies are automatically deleted once you close the browser. These include the session cookies in particular. These save a so-called session ID, by means of which various requests of your browser can be assigned to the joint session. By means of this process, your computer can be recognised once again if you return to our website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.
b) Permanent cookies are automatically deleted after a prescribed period of time, which can vary depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.

Further functions and services of our website
Alongside the use of our website solely for information purposes, we provide various services which you can use if interested. For these services, it is generally necessary for you to provide additional personal data, which we use to provide the respective service and for which the principles relating to data processing stated above apply.
In part, we also use external service providers to process your data. These were carefully selected and engaged by us, are bound by our instructions and are regularly monitored.

Information on the transfer of data to the USA
Among other things tools of companies based in the USA are integrated into our website. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to the US servers of the company in question. Please note that the USA is not a secure third country in the meaning of EU data protection laws. US companies are obliged to surrender personal data to security authorities, without you as the data subject being able to take action against this procedure through the courts. It therefore cannot be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. intelligence services) may process and evaluate your data located on US servers and store it for long periods of time for the purposes of surveillance. We have no influence on these processing activities.
Our social media appearances
Data processing through social networks
We maintain publicly available profiles in social networks. The individual social networks we use can be found below.
Social networks such as Facebook, Twitter etc. can generally analyze your user behavior comprehensively if you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. like buttons or banner ads). When you visit our social media pages, numerous data protection-relevant processing operations are triggered. In detail:
If you are logged in to your social media account and visit our social media page, the operator of the social media portal can assign this visit to your user account. Under certain circumstances, your personal data may also be recorded if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, this data is collected, for example, via cookies stored on your device or by recording your IP address.
Our social media appearances should ensure the widest possible presence on the Internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may be based on divergent legal bases to be specified by the operators of the social networks (e.g. consent within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR).
Responsibility and assertion of rights
If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g., Facebook), we, together with the operator of the social media platform, are responsible for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. You can in principle protect your rights (information, correction, deletion, limitation of processing, data portability and complaint) vis-à-vis us as well as vis-à-vis the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. Facebook).
Please note that despite the shared responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full influence on the data processing operations of the social media portals. Our options are determined by the company policy of the respective provider.
The data collected directly from us via the social media presence will be deleted from our systems as soon as the purpose for their storage lapses, you ask us to delete it, you revoke your consent to the storage or the purpose for the data storage lapses. Stored cookies remain on your device until you delete them. Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular, retention periods - remain unaffected.
Individual social networks
We have a profile on Instagram. The provider is Instagram Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA.
Data transmission to the US is based on the Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) of the European Commission. Details can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/legal/EU_data_transfer_addendum, https://help.instagram.com/519522125107875 and https://de-de.facebook.com/help/566994660333381.
Objection to the processing of your data or revocation of consent
Should you have issued your consent to the processing of your data, you can revoke this at any time. Such a revocation affects the lawfulness of the processing of your personal data once you have issued it to us. The lawfulness of the data processing which took place prior to the issuing of the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Should we base the processing of your personal data on a balancing of interests, you can raise an objection to the processing. This is the case in particular if the processing is not necessary in order to fulfil a contract with you, which will be set out by us in the following description of the respective functions. When exercising such a right of revocation, we would kindly request you state the reasons why we should no longer process your personal data. In case of a justified objection by you, we will check the facts and will either suspend or adjust the data processing or inform you of our mandatory protectable reasons why we will continue the processing.
