DATA PROTECTION

data protection
We have written this data protection declaration (version 18.12.2020-311242289) to explain to you in accordance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 what information we collect, how we use data and what choices you have as a visitor to this website.
 
Automatic data storage
When you visit websites these days, certain information is automatically created and stored, including on this website.
 
If you visit our website as it is now, our web server (computer on which this website is stored) automatically saves data such as
  • the address (URL) of the accessed website
  • Browser and browser version
  • the operating system used
  • the address (URL) of the previously visited page (referrer URL)
  • the host name and the IP address of the device from which access is made
  • Date and Time
in files (web server log files).
 
As a rule, web server log files are stored for two weeks and then automatically deleted. We do not pass on this data, but we cannot rule out that this data will be viewed in the event of illegal behavior.
 
Cookies
Our website uses HTTP cookies to save user-specific data.
In the following we explain what cookies are and why they are used so that you can better understand the following data protection declaration.
 
What exactly are cookies?
Whenever you surf the Internet, you are using a browser. Well-known browsers are, for example, Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge. Most websites save small text files in your browser. These files are called cookies.
 
One thing cannot be dismissed out of hand: Cookies are really useful little helpers. Almost all websites use cookies. More precisely, they are HTTP cookies, as there are also other cookies for other areas of application. HTTP cookies are small files that our website stores on your computer. These cookie files are automatically placed in the cookie folder, which is the “brain” of your browser. A cookie consists of a name and a value. When defining a cookie, one or more attributes must also be specified.
 
Cookies save certain user data about you, such as language or personal page settings. When you call up our site again, your browser transmits the "user-related" information back to our site. Thanks to cookies, our website knows who you are and offers you your usual standard settings. In some browsers, each cookie has its own file, in others, such as Firefox, all cookies are stored in a single file.
 
There are both first-party cookies and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are created directly from our side, third-party cookies are created by partner websites (e.g. Google Analytics). Each cookie must be evaluated individually, as each cookie stores different data. The expiry time of a cookie also varies from a few minutes to a few years. Cookies are not software programs and do not contain viruses, Trojans or other "pests". Cookies cannot access information on your PC either.
 
For example, cookie data can look like this:
  • Name: _ga
  • Expiry time: 2 years
  • Use: Differentiation of website visitors
  • Exemplary value: GA1.2.1326744211.152311242289
 
A browser should support the following minimum sizes:
  • A cookie should be able to contain at least 4096 bytes
  • At least 50 cookies should be able to be saved per domain
  • A total of at least 3000 cookies should be able to be stored
 
What types of cookies are there?
The question of which cookies we use in particular depends on the services used and is clarified in the following sections of the data protection declaration. At this point we would like to briefly discuss the different types of HTTP cookies.
 
There are 4 types of cookies:
 
Absolutely necessary cookies
These cookies are necessary to ensure the basic functions of the website. For example, these cookies are needed when a user puts a product in the shopping cart, then continues surfing on other pages and only goes to checkout later. These cookies do not delete the shopping cart, even if the user closes his browser window.
 
Functional cookies
These cookies collect information about user behavior and whether the user receives any error messages. In addition, these cookies are used to measure the loading time and the behavior of the website with different browsers.
 
Goal-oriented cookies
These cookies ensure better user-friendliness. For example, entered locations, font sizes or form data are saved.
 
Advertising cookies
These cookies are also called targeting cookies. They serve to deliver customized advertising to the user. That can be very practical, but also very annoying.
 
When you visit a website for the first time, you will usually be asked which of these types of cookies you would like to allow. And of course this decision is also saved in a cookie.
 
How can I delete cookies?
You decide for yourself how and whether you want to use cookies. Regardless of which service or website the cookies originate from, you always have the option of deleting cookies, only partially allowing them or deactivating them. For example, you can block third-party cookies but allow all other cookies.
 
If you want to find out which cookies have been stored in your browser, if you want to change or delete cookie settings, you can find this in your browser settings:
 
Chrome: Delete, activate and manage cookies in Chrome
 
Safari: manage cookies and website data with Safari
 
Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have stored on your computer
 
Internet Explorer: deleting and managing cookies
 
Microsoft Edge: Deleting and managing cookies
 
If you generally do not want cookies, you can set up your browser so that it always informs you when a cookie is to be set. In this way, you can decide for each individual cookie whether or not to allow the cookie. The procedure is different depending on the browser. It is best to search for the instructions in Google with the search term “Delete cookies Chrome” or “Deactivate cookies Chrome” in the case of a Chrome browser or replace the word “Chrome” with the name of your browser, e.g. Edge, Firefox, Safari.
 
What about my data protection?
The so-called “cookie guidelines” have existed since 2009. It states that the storage of cookies requires your consent. Within the EU countries, however, there are still very different reactions to these guidelines. In Germany, the cookie guidelines have not been implemented as national law. Instead, this guideline was largely implemented in Section 15 (3) of the Telemedia Act (TMG).
 
If you want to know more about cookies and are not afraid of technical documentation, we recommend https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6265 , the Request for Comments of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) called “HTTP State Management Mechanism”.
 
Rights according to the General Data Protection Regulation
According to the provisions of the GDPR, you have the following rights:
 
  • Right to rectification (Article 16 GDPR)
  • Right to erasure ("right to be forgotten") (Article 17 GDPR)
  • Right to restriction of processing (Article 18 GDPR)
  • Right to notification - obligation to notify in connection with the correction or deletion of personal data or the restriction of processing (Article 19 GDPR)
  • Right to data portability (Article 20 GDPR)
  • Right to object (Article 21 GDPR)
  • Right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing - including profiling (Article 22 GDPR)
 
If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or that your data protection claims have been violated in any other way, you can contact the Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (BfDI).
 
Evaluation of visitor behavior
In the following data protection declaration we inform you whether and how we evaluate data from your visit to this website. The evaluation of the collected data is usually anonymous and we cannot infer your person from your behavior on this website.
 
You can find out more about how to object to this analysis of the visit data in the following data protection declaration.
 
TLS encryption with https
We use https to transmit data securely on the Internet (data protection through technology design, Article 25 (1) GDPR) . By using TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transmission on the Internet, we can ensure the protection of confidential data. You can recognize the use of this protection of data transmission by the small lock symbol in the top left of the browser and the use of the https (instead of http) scheme as part of our Internet address.
Facebook-Pixel data protection declaration
We use the Facebook pixel from Facebook on our website. We have implemented a code for this on our website. The Facebook pixel is an excerpt from JavaScript code that loads a collection of functions with which Facebook can track your user actions, provided you have come to our website via Facebook ads. For example, if you purchase a product on our website, the Facebook pixel is triggered and saves your actions on our website in one or more cookies. These cookies enable Facebook to compare your user data (customer data such as IP address, user ID) with the data in your Facebook account. Then Facebook deletes this data again. The data collected is anonymous and cannot be viewed by us and can only be used in the context of advertisements. If you are a Facebook user yourself and are logged in, your visit to our website is automatically assigned to your Facebook user account.
 
We want to show our services and products only to those people who are really interested in them. With the help of Facebook pixels, our advertising measures can be better tailored to your wishes and interests. In this way, Facebook users (provided they have allowed personalized advertising) see appropriate advertising. Furthermore, Facebook uses the collected data for analysis purposes and its own advertisements.
 
In the following we show you the cookies that were set on a test page by integrating Facebook pixels. Please note that these are only sample cookies. Different cookies are set depending on the interaction on our website.

to exclude.
 
If you are logged in to Facebook, you can change your settings for advertisements yourself at https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen. If you are not a Facebook user, you can basically manage your usage-based online advertising at http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/. There you have the option of deactivating or activating providers.
 
If you want to learn more about Facebook's data protection, we recommend the company's own data guidelines at https://www.facebook.com/policy.php .
 
Facebook automatic
extended comparison of data protection declaration
We have also activated the automatic advanced matching as part of the Facebook pixel function. This function of the pixel enables us to send hashed e-mails, names, gender, city, state, zip code and date of birth or telephone number as additional information to Facebook, provided that you have provided this data to us. This activation enables us to adapt advertising campaigns on Facebook even more precisely to people who are interested in our services or products.
 
Embedded social media elements data protection declaration
We integrate elements of social media services on our website to display images, videos and texts.
When you visit pages that display these elements, data is transferred from your browser to the respective social media service and stored there. We have no access to this data.
The following links take you to the pages of the respective social media services where it is explained how they handle your data:
 
 
Facebook privacy policy
We use selected tools from Facebook on our website. Facebook is a social media network operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2 Ireland. With the help of these tools, we can offer you and people who are interested in our products and services the best possible offer. In the following we provide an overview of the various Facebook tools, which data is sent to Facebook and how you can delete this data.
 
What are Facebook tools?
In addition to many other products, Facebook also offers the so-called “Facebook Business Tools”. This is the official name of Facebook. But since the term is hardly known, we decided to call them just Facebook tools. These include:
 
  • Facebook pixel
  • social plug-ins (such as the "Like" or "Share" button)
  • Facebook login
  • Account Kit
  • APIs (programming interface)
  • SDKs (collection of programming tools)
  • Platform integrations
  • Plugins
  • Codes
  • Specifications
  • Documentation
  • Technologies and services
 
These tools enable Facebook to expand its services and to obtain information about user activities outside of Facebook.
 
Why do we use Facebook tools on our website?
We only want to show our services and products to people who are really interested in them. With the help of advertisements (Facebook ads) we can reach exactly these people. However, in order to be able to show the users appropriate advertising, Facebook needs information about the wishes and needs of the people. Information about user behavior (and contact details) is made available to the company on our website. As a result, Facebook collects better user data and can show interested people the right advertising about our products or services. The tools thus enable tailor-made advertising campaigns on Facebook.
 
Facebook calls data about your behavior on our website “event data”. These are also used for measurement and analysis services. In this way, Facebook can create “campaign reports” on our behalf about the impact of our advertising campaigns. Furthermore, analyzes give us a better insight into how you use our services, website or products. This enables us to optimize your user experience on our website with some of these tools. For example, you can use the social plug-ins to share content on our site directly on Facebook.
 
Which data are saved by Facebook tools?
By using individual Facebook tools, personal data (customer data) can be sent to Facebook. Depending on the tools used, customer data such as name, address, telephone number and IP address can be sent.
 
Facebook uses this information to compare the data with the data it has about you (if you are a Facebook member). So-called "hashing" takes place before customer data is transmitted to Facebook. This means that a data record of any size can be transformed into a character string. This is also used to encrypt data.
 
In addition to the contact details, "event data" are also transmitted. "Event data" means the information that we receive about you on our website. For example, which sub-pages you visit or which products you buy from us. Facebook does not share the information it receives with third parties (such as advertisers) unless the company has explicit permission or is legally obliged to do so. "Event data" can also be linked to contact details. This enables Facebook to offer better personalized advertising. After the already mentioned comparison process, Facebook will delete the contact details again.
 
In order to be able to deliver advertisements in an optimized way, Facebook only uses the event data if this has been combined with other data (which were recorded by Facebook in another way). Facebook also uses this event data for security, protection, development and research purposes. Much of this data is transferred to Facebook via cookies. Cookies are small text files that are used to store data or information in browsers. Depending on the tools used and whether you are a Facebook member, a different number of cookies will be created in your browser. In the descriptions of the individual Facebook tools, we go into more detail on individual Facebook cookies. You can also find general information about the use of Facebook cookies at https://www.facebook.com/policies/cookies.
 
How long and where will the data be stored?
In principle, Facebook stores data until it is no longer needed for its own services and Facebook products. Facebook has servers all over the world where your data is stored. However, customer data will be deleted within 48 hours after it has been compared with your own user data.
 
How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?
In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation, you have the right to information, correction, portability and deletion of your data.
The data will only be completely deleted if you completely delete your Facebook account. And this is how deleting your Facebook account works:
 
1) On the right side of Facebook, click Settings.
2) Then click on "Your Facebook information" in the left column.
3) Now click “Deactivate and Delete”.
4) Now select "Delete account" and then click on "Next and delete account"
5) Now enter your password, click on "Next" and then on "Delete account"
 
The storage of the data that Facebook receives via our site takes place, among other things, via cookies (e.g. with social plugins). You can deactivate, delete or manage individual or all cookies in your browser. Depending on which browser you are using, this works in different ways. The following instructions show how to manage cookies in your browser:
 
Chrome: Delete, activate and manage cookies in Chrome
 
Safari: manage cookies and website data with Safari
 
Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have stored on your computer
 
Internet Explorer: deleting and managing cookies
 
Microsoft Edge: Deleting and managing cookies
 
If you generally do not want cookies, you can set up your browser so that it always informs you when a cookie is to be set. In this way, you can decide for each individual cookie whether or not to allow it.
 
Facebook is an active participant in the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework, which regulates the correct and secure transfer of personal data. You can find more information on this at https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC . We hope we have brought you the most important information about the use and data processing by the Facebook tools. If you want to learn more about how Facebook uses your data, we recommend the data guidelines at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/update .
Instagram privacy policy
We have built in functions from Instagram on our website. Instagram is a social media platform operated by Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Rd, Menlo Park CA 94025, USA. Instagram has been a subsidiary of Facebook Inc. since 2012 and is a Facebook product. Embedding Instagram content on our website is called embedding. This enables us to show you content such as buttons, photos or videos from Instagram directly on our website. When you visit our website that has an Instagram function integrated, data is transmitted to Instagram, stored and processed. Instagram uses the same systems and technologies as Facebook. Your data will thus be processed across all Facebook companies.
 
In the following, we want to give you a more detailed insight into why Instagram collects data, what data it is and how you can largely control the data processing. Since Instagram belongs to Facebook Inc., we obtain our information from the Instagram guidelines on the one hand, but also from the Facebook data guidelines themselves on the other.
 
What is Instagram
Instagram is one of the most famous social media networks in the world. Instagram combines the advantages of a blog with the advantages of audiovisual platforms such as YouTube or Vimeo. You can upload photos and short videos to “Insta” (as many of the users casually call the platform), edit them with various filters and also distribute them on other social networks. And if you don't want to be active yourself, you can just follow other interesting users.
 
Why do we use Instagram on our website?
Instagram is the social media platform that has really gone through the roof in recent years. And of course we have also reacted to this boom. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible on our website. That is why a varied preparation of our content is a matter of course for us. Thanks to the embedded Instagram functions, we can enrich our content with helpful, funny or exciting content from the Instagram world. Since Instagram is a subsidiary of Facebook, the data collected can also be useful for personalized advertising on Facebook. Our advertisements are only given to people who are really interested in our products or services.
 
Instagram also uses the collected data for measurement and analysis purposes. We get summarized statistics and thus more insight into your wishes and interests. It is important to note that these reports do not personally identify you.
 
What data is stored by Instagram?
If you come across one of our pages that has Instagram functions (such as Instagram images or plug-ins) installed, your browser automatically connects to the Instagram servers. In doing so, data is sent to Instagram, stored and processed. Regardless of whether you have an Instagram account or not. This includes information about our website, about your computer, about purchases made, about advertisements that you see and how you use our offer. The date and time of your interaction with Instagram are also saved. If you have an Instagram account or are logged in, Instagram stores significantly more data about you.
 
Facebook differentiates between customer data and event data. We assume this is exactly the case with Instagram. Customer data are, for example, name, address, telephone number and IP address. It is important to mention that this customer data is only transmitted to Instagram after it has been "hashed" beforehand. Hashing means that a data record is converted into a character string. This allows you to encrypt the contact details. In addition, the above-mentioned "event data" are also transmitted. Facebook - and consequently Instagram - understands “event data” to mean data about your user behavior. It can also happen that contact data is combined with event data. The contact details collected are compared with the data that Instagram already has about you.
 
The collected data is transmitted to Facebook via small text files (cookies), which are usually set in your browser. Depending on the Instagram functions used and whether you have an Instagram account yourself, different amounts of data are stored.
 
We assume that data processing on Instagram works in the same way as on Facebook. This means: if you have an Instagram account or have visited www.instagram.com, Instagram has set at least one cookie. If this is the case, your browser sends information to Instagram via the cookie as soon as you come into contact with an Instagram function. This data will be deleted or anonymized after 90 days at the latest (after comparison). Although we have dealt intensively with data processing by Instagram, we cannot say exactly which data Instagram collects and stores exactly.
 
In the following we show you cookies that are set in your browser at least when you click on an Instagram function (such as a button or an Insta picture). In our test, we assume that you do not have an Instagram account. If you are logged in to Instagram, significantly more cookies will of course be set in your browser.
 
These cookies were used in our test:
 
Name: csrftoken

Purpose: This cookie is used by Instagram for marketing purposes.
Expiration date: after the end of the session
 
Note: We cannot claim to be complete here. Which cookies are set in the individual case depends on the embedded functions and your use of Instagram.
 
How long and where will the data be stored?
Instagram shares the information received between the Facebook companies with external partners and with people with whom you connect worldwide. The data processing takes place in compliance with our own data guidelines. For security reasons, among other things, your data is distributed on Facebook servers around the world. Most of these servers are in the USA.
 
How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?
Thanks to the General Data Protection Regulation, you have the right to information, portability, correction and deletion of your data. You can manage your data in the Instagram settings. If you want to completely erase your data on Instagram, you have to delete your Instagram account permanently.
 
And this is how the deletion of the Instagram account works:
 
First, open the Instagram app. On your profile page, go down and click on "Help Center". You are now on the company's website. On the website, click on "Manage Your Account" and then on "Delete Your Account".
 
If you delete your account entirely, Instagram will delete posts such as your photos and status updates. Information that other people have shared about you does not belong to your account and therefore will not be deleted.
 
As already mentioned above, Instagram stores your data primarily via cookies. You can manage, deactivate or delete these cookies in your browser. Management always works a little differently depending on your browser. Here we show you
the instructions for the main browsers.
 
Chrome: Delete, activate and manage cookies in Chrome
 
Safari: manage cookies and website data with Safari
 
Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have stored on your computer
 
Internet Explorer: deleting and managing cookies
 
Microsoft Edge: Deleting and managing cookies
 
You can also set up your browser so that you are always informed when a cookie is to be set. Then you can always decide individually whether you want to allow the cookie or not.
 
Instagram is a subsidiary of Facebook Inc. and Facebook is an active participant in the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework. This framework ensures correct data transfer between the USA and the European Union. You can find out more about this at https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC. We have tried to give you the most important information about data processing by Instagram. On https://help.instagram.com/519522125107875
you can take a closer look at Instagram's data guidelines.
YouTube privacy policy
We have installed YouTube videos on our website. So we can present you interesting videos directly on our site. YouTube is a video portal that has been a subsidiary of Google since 2006. The video portal is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you call up a page on our website that has embedded a YouTube video, your browser automatically connects to the YouTube or Google servers. Different data are transmitted (depending on the settings). Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all data processing in Europe.
 
In the following we want to explain in more detail which data is processed, why we have integrated YouTube videos and how you can manage or delete your data.
 
What is youtube
On YouTube, users can watch, rate, comment and upload videos for free. Over the past few years, YouTube has become one of the most important social media channels in the world. So that we can display videos on our website, YouTube provides a code excerpt that we have built into our site.
 
Why do we use YouTube videos on our website?
YouTube is the video platform with the most visitors and the best content. We strive to offer you the best possible user experience on our website. And of course interesting videos shouldn't be missing. With the help of our embedded videos, we provide you with other helpful content in addition to our texts and images. In addition, our website is easier to find on the Google search engine thanks to the embedded videos. Even if we place advertisements via Google Ads, thanks to the data collected, Google can really only show these advertisements to people who are interested in our offers.
 
Which data is saved by YouTube?
As soon as you visit one of our pages that has a YouTube video integrated, YouTube sets at least one cookie that saves your IP address and our URL. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can usually assign your interactions on our website to your profile with the help of cookies. This includes data such as session duration, bounce rate, approximate location, technical information such as browser type, screen resolution or your Internet provider. Further data can be contact details, any ratings, sharing content via social media or adding it to your favorites on YouTube.
 
If you are not signed in to a Google account or a Youtube account, Google stores data with a unique identifier that is linked to your device, browser or app. For example, your preferred language setting is retained. But a lot of interaction data cannot be saved because fewer cookies are set.
 
In the following list we show cookies that were set in a test in the browser. On the one hand, we show cookies that are set without a registered YouTube account. On the other hand, we show cookies that are set with a registered account. The list cannot claim to be complete because the user data always depends on the interactions on YouTube.

How long and where will the data be stored?
The data that YouTube receives and processes from you is stored on Google's servers. Most of these servers are in America. At https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/?hl=de you can see exactly where the Google data centers are located. Your data is distributed on the servers. This means that the data can be accessed more quickly and is better protected against manipulation.
 
Google stores the collected data for different lengths of time. You can delete some data at any time, others are automatically deleted after a limited period of time and others are saved by Google for a longer period of time. Some data (such as items from "My Activity", photos or documents, products) saved in your Google Account will be saved until you delete them.

Vimeo privacy policy
 
We also use videos from Vimeo on our website. The video portal is operated by Vimeo LLC, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA. With the help of a plug-in, we can show you interesting video material directly on our website. Certain data can be transferred from you to Vimeo. In this data protection declaration we show you what data is involved, why we use Vimeo and how you can manage or prevent your data or data transfer.
 
What is Vimeo?
Vimeo is a video platform that was founded in 2004 and has enabled streaming of videos in HD quality since 2007. Since 2015 it has also been possible to stream in 4k Ultra HD. The portal is free to use, but paid content can also be published. Compared to the market leader YouTube, Vimeo attaches priority to high-quality content in good quality. On the one hand, the portal offers a lot of artistic content such as music videos and short films, on the other hand, it also offers interesting documentaries on a wide variety of topics.
 
Why do we use Vimeo on our website?
The aim of our website is to provide you with the best possible content. As easily accessible as possible. Only when we have managed that are we satisfied with our service. The video service Vimeo supports us in achieving this goal. Vimeo offers us the opportunity to present you high quality content directly on our website. Instead of just giving you a link to an interesting video, you can watch the video right here with us. This extends our service and makes it easier for you to access interesting content. Thus, in addition to our texts and images, we also offer video content.
 
What data is stored on Vimeo?
When you visit a web page on our website that has embedded a Vimeo video, your browser connects to the Vimeo servers. This results in a data transfer. This data is collected, saved and processed on the Vimeo servers. Regardless of whether you have a Vimeo account or not, Vimeo collects data about you. This includes your IP address, technical information about your browser type, your operating system or very basic device information. Vimeo also stores information about which website you use the Vimeo service and which actions (web activities) you carry out on our website. These web activities include, for example, session duration, bounce rate or which button you clicked on our website with a built-in Vimeo function. Vimeo can track and save these actions with the help of cookies and similar technologies.
 
If you are logged in as a registered member of Vimeo, more data can usually be collected, as more cookies may already have been set in your browser. In addition, your actions on our website are linked directly to your Vimeo account. To prevent this, you have to log out of Vimeo while “surfing” our website.
 
Below we show you cookies that are set by Vimeo when you are on a website with an integrated Vimeo function. This list is by no means exhaustive and assumes that you do not have a Vimeo account.

Note: These two cookies are always set as soon as you are on a website with an embedded Vimeo video.

These are also third-party cookies such as _ga or _gat_UA-76641-8 from Google Analytics or _fbp from Facebook. Exactly which cookies are set here depends on your interaction with the video.
 
The following list shows an excerpt of the possible cookies that are set when you interact with the Vimeo video:

Vimeo uses this data, among other things, to improve its own service, to communicate with you and to set its own targeted advertising measures. Vimeo emphasizes on its website that only first-party cookies (i.e. cookies from Vimeo itself) are used for embedded videos as long as you do not interact with the video.
 
How long and where will the data be stored?
Vimeo is headquartered in White Plains, New York State (USA). However, the services are offered worldwide. The company uses computer systems, databases and servers in the USA and in other countries. Your data can therefore also be stored and processed on servers in America. The data remains stored at Vimeo until the company no longer has any economic reason to store it. Then the data will be deleted or anonymized. Vimeo complies with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and is therefore allowed to collect, use and transfer data from users in the EU to the USA.
 
How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?
You always have the option of managing cookies in your browser as you wish. For example, if you do not want Vimeo to set cookies and thus collect information about you, you can delete or deactivate cookies at any time in your browser settings. This works a little differently depending on the browser. Please note that after deactivating / deleting cookies, various functions may no longer be fully available. The following instructions show how to manage or delete cookies in your browser.

SoundCloud privacy policy
We use functions (widgets) of the social media network SoundCloud from SoundCloud Limited, Rheinsberger Str. 76/77, 10115 Berlin, Germany on our website. You can recognize the widgets by the familiar orange logo. By using functions such as playing music, data is transmitted to SoundCloud, stored and evaluated. In this data protection declaration we show you what data is involved, why we use SoundCloud and how you can manage or prevent your data or data transmission.
 
What is SoundCloud?
The social media network SoundCloud is an online music platform that is used to exchange and distribute audio files. Musicians and podcasters offer their audio files for download on SoundCloud. With SoundCloud you can also embed the audio files in other websites. And that's exactly what we did. Typical for SoundCloud are the graphical representations of the audio files in wave form and the comment bar. Registered users can listen to and comment on pieces of music or podcasts at any time.
 
Why do we use SoundCloud on our website?
Our goal is to provide you with the best possible service on our website. We don't just mean our products or services. Holistic customer service also includes how comfortable you feel on our website and how helpful our website is for you. Thanks to the embedded SoundCloud playback function, we can deliver acoustic content directly and free of charge to you. You don't have to follow any link to listen to an audio file, you can start right away from our website.
 
What data is stored on SoundCloud?
As soon as you visit one of our websites that has a widget (like or share button or playback function) installed, your browser connects to a SoundCloud server. You can transfer your data to SoundCloud, manage and save it there. For example, SoundCloud learns your IP address and which page (in this case ours) you visited and when. If you have a SoundCloud account and are logged in while you are surfing our website, the data collected will be assigned directly to your account. You can only prevent this by logging out of SoundCloud while you are on our website. In addition to the information mentioned above, data about your user behavior is also stored in the cookies. Whenever you click a button, play or pause a piece of music, for example, this information is stored in the cookies. The widget or SoundCloud is thus able to recognize you and sometimes the widget is also used to provide you with personalized content. SoundCloud not only uses its own cookies, but also third-party cookies such as Facebook or Google Analytics. These cookies enable the company to obtain more information about your behavior on external websites and on its own platform. As the website operator, we do not receive any information about your user behavior from the SoundCloud cookies. The data transfer and therefore also the information about technical devices and your behavior on the website takes place between you and SoundCloud.

SoundCloud also uses other third-party cookies such as _fbp, _ga, gid from Facebook and Google Analytics. SoundCloud uses all of the information stored in the cookies to improve its own services and to display personalized advertising.
 
How long and where will the data be stored?
In principle, the collected data remains stored with SoundCloud as long as a user account exists or it is necessary for SoundCloud to achieve the business goals. How long exactly is stored varies depending on the context and legal obligations. Even if you do not have an account and personal data has been saved, you have the right to request data deletion.
 
How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?
If you have a SoundCloud account, you can manage data processing or delete your entire account via "Settings".
