Data privacy

The operator of these webpages takes the privacy of your personal information very seriously. We treat all personal information as confidential and in line with both statutory data privacy provisions and this data privacy declaration.

The use of this website is, as a rule, possible without having to enter any personal information. Insofar as personal information (e.g. name, address or email addresses) is recorded by our website, this is done so where possible on a voluntary basis. This information will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

We would like to point out that the transfer of data via the Internet (e.g. email communication) can be prone to security gaps. It is not possible to ensure the absolute protection of your data against unauthorised access by third parties.

Cookies

These webpages use so-called cookies in certain parts. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer, and do not contain any viruses. Cookies enable us to make our service offering more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

The majority of cookies we use our so-called “session cookies”. These are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. Cookies allow us to recognise your browser upon your next visit.

You can set your browser so that you can be informed about the storage of cookies, or so that you can permit cookies on an individual basis, or so that you can prevent the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general, and so that you can activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing your browser. By deactivating cookies the functions available with this website may be restricted.

Server log files

The provider of these webpages automatically records and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transfers to us. This includes:

  • Browser type / browser version
  • Operating system in use
  • Referrer URL
  • Hostname of the accessing computer
  • Time of server query

This information cannot be attributed to specific individuals. This data shall not be aggregated with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this information retrospectively if there are specific indications of unlawful use.

Order data processing

We have concluded a contractual agreement with Google governing our order data processing, and have ensured the complete implementation of the stringent specifications set out by the German data privacy authorities in relation to the use of Google Analytics.

IP anonymisation

We use the “Activation of IP anonymisation” function on this website. This ensures that your IP address is truncated by Google when within a member state of the European Union or another contracting member state to the European Economic Area. Only under exceptional circumstances will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of this website operator, in order to evaluate the website’s use, to compile reports on website activity, and to render additional services vis-a-vis the website operator in relation to website and Internet use. Any IP address transferred by your browser as part of the Google Analytics service will not be merged with other data from Google.

Every time one of our webpages is accessed, which contains the functions provided by Xing, a connection is established to Xing’s servers.
