Which data is collected in the case of a contact form can be seen from the respective

your request or for establishing contact and for the associated technical administration.
The legal basis for processing data is our legitimate interest in responding to your

a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) point b GDPR. Your

comment, information on the time of writing the comment and the name of the

your IP address is logged and stored. This IP address is stored for security reasons, in

6) Online Marketing
This website uses the services provided by Hubspot, a software-based marketing service of HubSpot Ireland Ltd., 2nd Floor 30 North Wall Quay, Dublin 1, Ireland (“Hubspot”).
With the help of Hubspot, various customer service and customer management services can be digitally synchronized and processed via a central user interface. HubSpot enables the generation of leads, centralized e-mail, and newsletter marketing, contact management through the classification of user groups with the help of CRM, and the administration of contact forms.
All processing described above, in particular the reading of information on the end device used, is only carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point a GPDR. Without this consent, sales tracking will not be used during your visit to the website.
You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your revocation, please deactivate this service in the “Cookie Consent Tool” provided on the website.
Other legal provisions for data processing that apply in the context of specific HubSpot services (such as the need for express consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a DSGVO when sending newsletters) remain unaffected.
We have concluded an order processing contract with HubSpot, which obliges HubSpot to protect the data of our customers and not to disclose them to third parties.
7) Site Functionalities
On this website we also use the reCAPTCHA function of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon
House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”). This function is mainly used
to distinguish whether an entry is made by a natural person or misused by automatic
and automated processing. The service includes the sending of the IP address and
possibly other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. The use of
Google reCAPTCHA may also result in the transmission of personal data to the servers of
Google LLC. in the USA and is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point f GDPR, on
the basis of our legitimate interest in determining the individual willingness of actions on
the Internet and avoiding misuse and spam.
8) Tools and Miscellaneous
This website uses a so-called “cookie consent tool” to obtain effective user consent
for cookies and cookie-based applications that require consent. The “cookie consent
tool” is displayed to users in the form of an interactive user interface when they access the page, on which consent for certain cookies and/or cookie-based applications can be
given by ticking the appropriate box. Using the tool, all cookies/services requiring
consent are only loaded if the respective user provides the corresponding consent by
ticking the corresponding box. This ensures that such cookies are only set on the
respective end device of the user if consent has been granted.
The tool sets technically necessary cookies to save your cookie preferences. Personal
user data is generally not processed.
If, in individual cases, personal data (such as the IP address) is processed for the
purpose of storing, assigning or logging cookie settings, this is done in accordance with
Art. 6 (1) point GDPR based on our legitimate interest in legally compliant, user-specific
and user-friendly consent management for cookies and thus in a legally compliant
design of our website.
Further legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) point c GDPR. As the responsible party,
we are subject to the legal obligation to make the use of technically unnecessary
cookies dependent on the respective user consent.
Further information on the operator and the setting options of the cookie consent tool
can be found directly in the corresponding user interface on our website.
