If you make contact with us proactively via email, we shall collect your personal data (name, email address, message text) only to the extent
provided by you. The purpose of the data processing is to handle and respond to your contact request.

If the initial contact occurs for other reasons, this data processing takes place on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR for the purposes of our
overriding, legitimate interest in handling and responding to your request. In this case, on grounds relating to your particular situation,
you have the right to object at any time to this processing of personal data concerning you and carried out on the basis of Article

periods, unless you have agreed to further processing and use.

concerns an agreement already concluded between you and us, this data processing takes place on the basis of Article 6(1)(b) GDPR.
If the initial contact occurs for other reasons, this data processing takes place on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR for the purposes of our

Advertising tracking
Use of Google Ads conversion tracking
Our website uses the online marketing program "Google Ads", including conversion tracking (evaluation of user actions). Google conversion
tracking is a service operated by Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google").
If you are ordinarily resident in the European Economic Area or Switzerland, Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin
4, Ireland) is the controller responsible for your data. Google Ireland Limited is therefore the company affiliated with Google responsible for
processing your data and for compliance with the applicable data protection legislation.
If you click on adverts placed by Google, a cookie is placed on your computer for conversion tracking. These cookies have limited validity,
do not contain any personal data and thus cannot be used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages on our website and the
cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognise that you have clicked on the advert and were forwarded to this page. Every
Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. It is therefore not possible to track cookies relating to the websites of Ads customers.
The information collected using the conversion cookie serves the purpose of producing conversion statistics. This allows us to find out the
total number of users who have clicked on our adverts and were forwarded to a page equipped with a conversion tracking tag. However,
they do not receive any information with which could be used to personally identify users.
Your data may be transmitted to the USA.
The data processing, particularly the placing of cookies, is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR due to our overriding legitimate
interest in addressing visitors to the website with targeted, interest-related advertising. On grounds relating to your particular situation,
you have the right to object at any time to this processing of personal data concerning you and carried out in accordance with
Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.
You can deactivate personalised advertising in Google’s advertising settings. Instructions for this can be found at
https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=de.
Alternatively, you can prevent the use of cookies by third parties by calling up the Network Advertising Initiative deactivation page at
https://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ and following the further opt-out instructions specified there.
You then won’t be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

actively login that a direct connection to the social network is set up. By logging in, you give your permission for the transfer of your data to
the respective social media provider. At this time, information such as your IP address and which websites you have visited is transmitted.
Should you be connected simultaneously with one or more of your social network accounts, the information collected is also assigned to
your corresponding profiles. Therefore, you can only prevent this assignment by logging yourself out before visiting our website and before
activating the button for your social media accounts. The social networks listed below are integrated with the “Shariff” function. You can find
more detailed information on the scope and purpose of collection and use of the data, your associated rights and options for protecting
