This also includes the IP address of your requesting terminal device. It is temporarily stored in a so-called log file and automatically deleted after 4 weeks.
The IP address is processed for technical and administrative purposes of connection set-up and stability, in order to guarantee the security and functioning of our website and to be able to track any illegal attacks on the website, if required.
The legal basis for the processing of the IP address is point (f) of the first sentence of Article 6(1) GDPR. Our legitimate interest ensues from the said security interest and the necessity of the unobstructed provision of our website.
We cannot draw any direct conclusions about your identity from the processing of the IP address or other information in the log file.

Cookies contain information pertaining to the specific device which accessed our website. However, this does not provide us with direct knowledge of your identity.
One reason for us to use cookies is making the use of our website more convenient for you. We use session cookies to recognize that you have already visited certain pages of our website.
We also use temporary cookies to optimize the user-friendliness of our website. Your device stores these cookies temporarily for a specific time. The next time you visit our website, our server will recognize your device as prior visitor and remember your settings and preferences. You will not have to enter these parameters again. We furthermore use cookies to gather data for our website statistics. This helps us evaluate and optimize our web offering (see Section 6). These cookies allow us to automatically recognize repeat visits from your device. They will be deleted automatically after a specific time.

6. Social Plug-ins

We use social plug-ins (media buttons) on our website. These are small buttons. Click on them to place the content of our website under your profile in social network sites.
If you click on such a button, a link will be established between our website and the social network to which you subscribe. Aside from the respective content, the social network provider will receive other personal information. This includes the information that you are visiting our website right now.
For integrating the social media button we use the Shariff Solution. This solution developed by Heise and c’t prevents your device from creating a link to the social network merely because you visit a website featuring a social plug-in button without clicking on it. This means that a link is established only if you click on the social plug-in button.
We integrate the following social plug-in on our website:

a) Twitter International Company: share on Twitter

Some information is transferred to the US parent company Twitter Inc., headquartered in the USA. This company complies with the data protection regulations of the US Privacy Shield and is registered with the US Privacy Shield Program of the US Department of Commerce.
Please find more information on Twitter’s data protection in Twitter’s Data Protection Statement .

b) LinkedIn Corporation: Sharing on LinkedIn

Information is partly transmitted to the parent company LinkedIn Corporation, headquartered in the USA. This company complies with the data protection regulations of the U.S. Privacy Shield and is registered with the U.S. Privacy Shield Program of the U.S. Department of Commerce. Further information on data protection on LinkedIn can be found in the company’s privacy policy .

7. YouTube

Integration using the Shariff variant

We integrate components (videos) of YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA (hereinafter “YouTube”), a company of Google Inc., Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View CA 94043, USA, (hereinafter “Google”) in our websites. The implementation is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR; our legitimate interest in that case is the smooth integration of the videos and the attractive design of our website.
Our websites use a solution that prevents the establishment of a connection to Google simply because you visit a site with an integrated video, without activating the video. This means that information is transmitted to YouTube only if you actually click to view the video.
Google complies with the Data Protection Regulations of the U.S. Privacy Shield and is registered with the U.S. Privacy Shield Program of the U.S. Department of Trade.
Further information on data protection in connection with YouTube can be found in Google’s privacy policy .
