2. Collection and processing of your personal data when using our website

Technical provision of the website, hosting

When accessing content on our website, data is temporarily stored via so-called log files, which may allow identification. The following data is collected:

The temporary storage is necessary for the retrieval and the course of a website visit to enable the delivery of the website. Furthermore, the log data is stored to ensure the functionality of the website and the security of the information technology systems. Your IP address will be shortened as quickly as possible so that identification is no longer possible.

The legal basis for the temporary storage is Art. 6 (1) lit. b) GDPR. The legal basis for the further storage of the shortened IP address is our legitimate interest in protecting our information technology systems (in particular in the event of abusive attacks) in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR. No personal evaluation of your data, in particular for marketing purposes, will take place without prior consent.

As soon as your data is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected, your data is deleted. In the case of the provision of the website, this is given when the respective session has ended. In general the log data is only kept accessible for administrators.

For the technical provision and operation of our website, we use the hosting provider Hetzner Online GmbH, Industriestrasse 25, 91710 Gunzenhausen, Germany. For this purpose, Hetzner processes meta and communication data on our behalf and based on our legitimate interests in an efficient and secure provision of our website according to Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR. For this purpose, we have concluded an order processing agreement with Hetzner pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR.

Parent company: Google LLC 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). Google Fonts is an interactive directory of more than 800 fonts provided by Google LLC free to use.

As an important component, Google Fonts serves to keep the quality of our website high. By using Google Fonts, we can use fonts without having to upload them to our own server. The Google fonts are automatically optimized for the web, which saves data volume and thus ensures faster loading times.

Google Fonts is supported by all major browsers and works reliably on most modern mobile operating systems.

The legal basis for the use of Google Fonts is our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR. Legitimate interest is understood to be both legal and economic or ideal interests recognized by the legal system. Our legitimate interest in this case is to present our website in an aesthetically pleasing, consistent and secure manner as possible.

When using Google Fonts, no cookies are stored in your browser. The font files are requested through the Google domains and, which Google says are separated from all other Google services, including your Google account if you have one.

Google records the use of so-called CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and the fonts used and stores this data securely. Google stores requests for CSS assets for one day on your servers, which are mainly located outside the EU. Insofar as Google Ireland Limited transfers personal data to the US parent company Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, Google guarantees by means of standard contractual clauses to maintain the EU level of data protection. Google thus pursues the goal of fundamentally improving the loading time of websites by having the fonts already in the cache when millions of websites refer to the same fonts.

In addition, each Google Fonts request also automatically transmits information such as IP address, language settings, screen resolution, browser name and version to Google servers to ensure correct graphical display.

2.3 Google Adsense

This website uses Google AdSense, a service for integrating advertisements from Google Inc. ("Google"). The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

This function allows you to link the advertising target groups created with Google Analytics Remarketing to the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. This way interest-based, personalized advertising messages that have been customized for you based on your previous usage and surfing behavior on one device (e.g. mobile phone) can also be displayed on other of your devices (e.g. tablet or PC).

If you have given your consent, Google will link your web and app browsing history with your Google account. This means that the same personalized advertising messages can be displayed on any device on which you log in to your Google account, the same personalized advertising messages can be displayed.

To support this function, Google Analytics records Google-authenticated IDs of users that temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create target groups for cross-device ad targeting.

You can permanently opt out of cross-device remarketing/targeting by deactivate personalized advertising in your Google account; to do this, follow this link:

The summary of the data collected in your Google account is based solely on your consent, which you can give or revoke at Google (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). In data collection processes that are not merged into your Google account (e.g. because you do not have a Google account or have objected to the merging) the collection of data is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The legitimate interest arises from the fact that the website operator has an has an interest in the anonymized analysis of website visitors for advertising purposes.
