This Data Protection Statement uses the terms defined in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

“Personal data” is defined as any information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “data subject”); a natural person is regarded as identifiable if they can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by means of assignment to an identifier such as a name, to a code, to location data, to an online identifier or to one or more special features which are an expression of the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person.

“Processing” is defined as any process performed with or without the aid of automated processes, or any such series of operations relating to personal data such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alternation, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure through transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

“Restriction of processing” means the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting is processing in the future.

“Profiling” is defined as any automated processing of personal data consisting in the use of this personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular with a view to analysing or predicting aspects relating to the performance of work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, location or movement of that natural person.

“Pseudonymisation” means the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data cannot be traced back to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

“File system” is any structured set of personal data which is accessible according to specific criteria, irrespective of whether this set is managed in a centralised, decentralised way or ordered according to functional or geographical aspects.

“Controller” is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by European Union or national laws of the Member States, provision may be made for the controller and/or the specific criteria for his or her designation in accordance with European Union or national law.

“Processor” is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

“Recipient” is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body to whom data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. Authorities which may receive personal data in the context of a specific assignment according to the European Union or national laws of the Member States, however, shall not be considered as recipients; the processing of such data by those authorities shall be carried out in accordance with the applicable data protection regulations.

“Third party” is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or the processor, are authorised to process the data.

“Consent” means any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

A cookie is a text file containing an identification number which, when the website is used, is transmitted to the user's computer together with the other data actually requested, and stored there. The file is kept there for later access and serves to authenticate the user. As cookies are only simple files and not executable programs, they do not pose any danger to the computer. Depending on the settings selected by the user in their Internet browser, the browser automatically accepts cookies. However, this setting can be changed and the storage of cookies can be deactivated or set so that the user is notified as soon as a cookie is set. If the use of cookies is deactivated, however, some functions of the website may not be available or only available to a limited extent. You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by adjusting the settings in your Internet browser accordingly and thereby permanently reject the setting of cookies. Cookies that are already active can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. We sometimes work together with advertising partners who help us to make our Internet offer more interesting for you. For this purpose, cookies from partner companies are also stored on your hard drive when you visit our website (cookies from third parties). If we cooperate with the aforementioned advertising partners, you will be informed individually and separately about the use of such cookies and the scope of the information collected in each case within the following paragraphs.

A distinction is made between the following types of cookies:

First-party cookies: First-party cookies are transmitted by the platform you are currently visiting.

Third-party cookies: Third-party cookies are cookies that are transmitted by a provider other than the provider of the platform the user is visiting. If a user calls up a platform and another entity transfers a cookie through this platform, this is a third party cookie.

Essential Cookies: These cookies are necessary for you to navigate the platform and use its features, such as access to secure areas of the platform. Without these, certain services cannot be provided, such as the display of content customised for your computer or device.

Performance cookies: These cookies collect information on how visitors use the platform, e.g. which pages are visited most frequently and whether they receive error messages from websites. However, these cookies do not collect information about the identity of the visitor. All information collected by these cookies is merged and is therefore anonymous. They are only used to optimise the platform.

They can also be used to save your settings regarding text size, font and other customisable parts of the website. They can likewise be used to provide services you request, such as viewing a video or commenting on a blog. The information collected by these cookies can be made anonymous. Your browsing activities cannot be tracked on other platforms.

Social media cookies: These cookies are used when you click a button on the platform to share information on social media. The social network records this action and may use it for marketing or advertising purposes.
