Data protection

Thank you for visiting our website. Protecting your personal data is a major concern to us. In the following, we will explain how we use your personal data:

Processing and using your personal data

The term personal data refers to any information that can be used to identify you, such as your name or your email address. We apply the principle of data reduction and data minimisation. Personal data is only used to the extent required and for legally authorised purposes.

We process your personal data where it is necessary for the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

For communication purposes we exclusively use personal data used by you in the context of general communication.

Apart from that, we process your personal data only with your previous consent and/or in the case of a prevailing legitimate interest.

External service providers we partner with on our website, if any, are selected with the greatest possible care. They are bound in regards to nature and extent of data processing tasks and to comply with our data protection standards.

Automatically generated data

Log file information is automatically collected when visiting our website. Such information includes browser type and version, the operating system used, the so-called referrer URL (i.e. the previously visited website, if you have accessed our website through a hyperlink), and date and time of accessing the webpage. This data cannot be assigned to certain persons. We do not link it with other data sources. Your system’s IP address will not be stored.

The data collected is exclusively used for the anonymous analysis of user behaviour, aiming to improve our website. No individual user behaviour will be analysed.

Cookies

Our website uses so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your end device by the browser. They do not cause any damage and do not allow for your identification. We use cookies in order to ensure that our offer is user-friendly.

We use persistent cookies.

Persistent cookies allow for recognition of your browser when visiting our website again. Persistent cookies are stored on your end device and will be deleted automatically after a certain period of time. You may also delete them yourself.

We use cookies of Google Analytics and Vimeo. For further details see the following separate section.

We do not store third party cookies which could allow tracing your user behaviour across several independent websites.

You can set your browser to notify you when a cookie is set or to allow cookies only in individual cases. Please see your web browser menu bar for further support.

If you disable cookies, your use of our website may be limited.

Training offers

You may book or request trainings via our website. For this, we collect your name, the company name, company address, email address, phone number, country, and name, email address and phone number of further participants. Your data will be retained for the duration of the business relation. It will be deleted three years from the last contact at the latest.

Web analysis

Improving our offer and our website (legitimate interest) is a major concern to us. We value our users’ privacy and, therefore, we pseudonymize your user data.

Piwik

On this website data are collected and stored for marketing and optimisation purposes using Piwik (www.piwik.org), an open-source software enabling visits to the website to be analysed statically. All visitor data is stored using an anonymous user ID and can be used to aggregate a usage profile. Cookies may be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are stored in the visitor’s local browser cache. It is possible to use these cookies to recognize a visitor’s browser. Data collected using Piwik will be stored on a server in Germany. These data will not be used to determine the personal identity of a website visitor, and will not be compiled with personal data relating to the person referred to by the pseudonym, unless agreed to separately by the person concerned. For this purpose, the IP address will be anonymised before it is stored.
