How We Collect and Use Personal Information
When you access our Site, we collect and store visitor information, the name of your internet provider, the internet protocol address (IP address) of your computer, date and time of your access to the Site and the internet address of the website that led you to our Site. We use this information based on our legitimate interest to track your visit and improve our Site.
For some information and services available through the Site, you may be asked to supply your name and an e-mail address. We may also obtain such information through other channels, for example where we have received your business card. Providing such information is entirely voluntary. If you do provide such information, we may use it to manage our relationship with you and, if you give us your consent by checking the relevant box when the information is provided, we may use it to send you information and to market our services. We will therefore send you marketing communications where you have consented to receive such marketing communications, or where we have a legitimate interest to do so. Through the use of tracking pixels, we may see whether and when an e-mail from us was opened and which links in the e-mail were activated. We may use such information based on our legitimate interest to enhance the usability of the Site and to ensure it is relevant and meets your needs, and to comply with our legal obligations.
How We May Share Personal Information
We may use social plug-ins of various social networks, for example LinkedIn, Twitter or Google. These plug-ins are functions of the respective social network through which you can share content of our Site with your social media contacts, for instance, or recommend this content to others. Social plug-ins can be identified by the logo of the respective social network.
Via the integrated social plug-ins, the social network operators, which are usually located in the United States of America, will be informed that you have called up the respective pages of our Site. If you are logged into any of the social networks at the same time, the operator will be able to match the relevant call-ups with your account at the respective social network. Moreover, if you interact with social plug-ins, the relevant information will be forwarded to the respective social network. For details on the purpose and scope of data processing, collection and use by the social networks we are using, and on your rights and optional settings in this context, please refer to the social networks’ statements on data protection to be found on the respective websites.
We use appropriate technical and organisational safeguards to protect personal information from loss, misuse or alteration. However, it is impossible to guarantee absolute security of personal information. Also, you should keep in mind that data transmitted through an open network such as the internet or an email service can be accessed openly. We cannot guarantee the confidentiality of messages or materials sent through such open networks. When you share personal information through an open network, you should be aware that third parties may access this information and collect and use it for their purposes.
