What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
When you contact us – online or offline – in connection with a request for information and/or marketing material, to order a product or service, to provide you with support, we collect information necessary to fulfill your request and provide you with our services as requested by you. For instance, we collect your name and contact information, details about your request and your agreement with us and any satisfaction survey information. We retain such information for administrative purposes and in connection with our relationship with you.
We may process personal data relating to you if one of the following applies:
- you have given your consent for one or more specific purposes.
- the provision of personal data is necessary for the performance of an agreement with you, your company or a third party, and/or for any pre-contractual obligations or any requests thereof;
- processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject;
- processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party.
In any case, we will gladly help you to clarify the specific legal basis that applies to a specific processing.
Contacting employees of our customers, partners and suppliers
In our relationship with clients, partners and suppliers, they also provide us with business contact information (such as name, business contact details, position or title of their employees, contractors, advisors and authorized users) for purposes of providing services, provision of support, invoicing and management of the services or the relationship. When you provide us with your business contact information (such as by handing over a business card) we may use this to communicate with you.

Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies,” text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of your use of the website
Use of our own “cookies”
This website uses its own “cookies” to increase user-friendliness (“cookies” are text files sent by the web server to the user’s browser and stored there for later retrieval). Our own “cookies” never store any personal information. You can prevent the use of “cookies” in general if you set your browser to disallow the storage of “cookies.”

Google Web Fonts
Our website uses plugins from YouTube, which is operated by Google. If you visit one of our pages featuring a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. Here the YouTube server is informed about which of our pages you have visited. If you’re logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube allows you to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account. YouTube is used to help make our website appealing. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
