    Overview of privacy policy:
    Privacy policy:



Our website uses functions of the XING and LinkedIn networks. Every time you open one of our pages containing XING or LinkedIn functions, a connection to XING or LinkedIn servers is established. As far as we are aware, no personal data is stored. In particular, no IP addresses are stored or usage behaviour analysed.

For further information on data protection and the Share button on XING and LinkedIn, please refer to the privacy policies at:


Our website uses plugins from the YouTube site operated by Google. When you visit one of our pages that has a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited.

If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to associate your surfing behaviour directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

For more information on the handling of user data, please refer to YouTube’s privacy policy at:


This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Your rights as a data subject:

You are entitled to the following rights with regard to your personal data:

  • You may request confirmation from us as to whether we are processing personal data about you and, if so, you have a right of access to such personal data and to the information detailed in Article 15 GDPR.
  • In accordance with Article 16 GDPR, you have the right to request the immediate correction or completion of any inaccurate or incomplete personal data concerning you.
  • You have the right to demand that we delete the personal data in question without delay, provided that one of the reasons listed in Article 17 GDPR applies.
  • You have the right to request the restriction of processing if one of the conditions listed in Article 18 GDPR applies.
  • If the conditions of Article 20 GDPR are met, you have the right to request a data transfer.
  • According to Article 21 GDPR, you have the right to object to processing based on Article 6 (1)(1)(f) GDPR. Processing is then based on Article 6 (1)(1)(f) GDPR if, for example, the processing is not necessary for the performance of a contract, but is based on a weighing of interests.
  • Insofar as we process your data on the basis of consent that you have given us, you can revoke that consent at any time. The revocation does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out until then on the basis of the consent, in other words the revocation only affects the lawfulness of the processing of your personal data after it has been declared to us.
  • You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you violates the GDPR (Article 77 GDPR). You can assert this right with a supervisory authority in the member state of your place of residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement. You can find an overview of the supervisory authorities in Germany here:
