1.2 We take great efforts to protect your personal data and respect your rights to privacy when we process and use this information. The purpose of this policy is to inform you about the collection of personal data when you use this website. By personal data we mean any data that can be used to identify an individual, for example name, address, email and user behaviour.
2. Automated data collection and processing by the browser
2.1 As on every website, our server automatically and temporarily collects data in the server logfiles that are sent by the browser, unless you have deactivated this function. If you wish to view our website, we collect the following data which is necessary for technical purposes, both to enable you to view our website and to guarantee stability and security (legal basis is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR):
- IP address of the computer accessing our website
- client’s file request
- http response code
- the website from which you are visiting our site (referrer URL)
- the time of the server request
- browser type and version
- operating system of the computer accessing our website
The server logfiles are not evaluated with reference to specific individuals. The provider cannot associate this data with a specific named individual at any point. The data will not be combined with other data sources.
According to the information provided by Google, Google will not associate the IP address obtained from your browser using Google Analytics with any other data held by Google.
You can change your browser software settings to prevent the storage of cookies. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the data generated by the cookie relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) being transmitted to and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser add-on available under the following link.
You can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. This places an opt-out cookie on your browser that prevents the collection of your data during future visits to the website from this device:» Click here to opt out of Google Analytics.
This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This means IP addresses are processed in their short form only and therefore cannot be directly linked to an individual. If the data collected reveals your personal identity, it will be excluded – and the personal data deleted – immediately.
We use Google Analytics so that we can analyse the use of our website and improve it on an ongoing basis. The statistical data generated enables us to improve our offering and make it more interesting for you as a user. In exceptional cases where personal data is sent to the USA, Google is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (f) GDPR.
2.3 This website uses Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager is a tool that enables marketers to manage website tags via an interface. The Tag Manager itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-less domain and does not collect personal data. The tool activates other tags which may in some cases collect data, but Google Tag Manager does not access this data. In the event of deactivation at domain or cookie level, the deactivation remains effective for all tracking tags implemented using Google Tag Manager.
When you visit our website, Google receives information that you have accessed our website. This information is collected via a web beacon that places a cookie on your computer. The data referred to under section 2.1 of this policy is transmitted. We have no influence over the data collected, nor do we know how much data is collected or how long it is stored for. Your data is sent to the USA and analysed there. If you are logged into your Google account, this data may be directly associated with your account. If you do not wish your data to be associated with your Google profile, you need to log out. It is possible that this data will be shared with Google’s contract partners and with third parties and government agencies. The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (f) GDPR. This website does not display third-party advertisements via Google Tag Manager.
2.4 We use a webfont from myfonts.com on our website. Under the terms of the licence, page-view tracking is carried out. This counts the number of visitors to our website for statistical purposes and sends the information to MyFonts. The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (f) GDPR.
Further information on data protection at MyFonts can be found HERE.
