For the uniform display of fonts, we have integrated “Google Fonts” into our website, a service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”).
When you access the website, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly. For this purpose, the browser you use must connect to Google’s servers. This enables Google to know that our website has been accessed via your IP address, whereby this data is used solely for the purpose of displaying the fonts in your browser.
To prevent misuse of the contact form, our order form and the self-test, we have integrated the “reCAPTCHA” function into our website. reCAPTCHA is a tool provided by the service provider Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”) and is used to detect bots.
The reCAPTCHA function checks whether an entry in the contact form is made by a human or an automated program. For this purpose, Google analyses (e.g. by querying image elements) the behaviour of the website visitor by collecting and evaluating certain user information (e.g. IP address, time spent on our website, mouse movements made by the website visitor on our website).
You have the possibility to object to these processing operations on the basis of our legitimate interests at any time by sending us a short message to one of the communication channels in Chapter 1.

g. Google Maps
On our website we use Google Maps (API) from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”). Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive (land) maps to visually present geographical information. By using this service, you will be shown our location and it will be easier for you to find us.
Information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) is transmitted to Google servers and stored there when you call up those sub-pages in which the Google Maps map is integrated; this information may also be transmitted to Google LLC servers in the USA. This is done regardless of whether Google provides a user account via which you are logged in or whether a user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not wish to be associated with your Google profile, you must log out before activating the button. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact Google to exercise this right.
Detailed information on data protection in connection with the use of Google Maps can be found here: https://policies.google.com/privacy.
We have also integrated “Facebook Pixel” of Facebook Inc. (“Facebook“) on our website. Similar to the way cookies work, Facebook Pixel allows us and Facebook to collect information about your user behaviour on our website, classify you into interest groups (Custom Audience) and use this information to serve ads within the Facebook network that may be of interest based on your activities on our website.
With the help of Facebook Pixel, we can also track the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether you were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (“conversion measurement”).
Subject to your consent in the cookie settings, we are jointly responsible for certain data processing operations (here: the collection of information by means of Facebook Pixel and transmission to Facebook) due to the integration of Facebook Pixel and have concluded a corresponding agreement with Facebook to this effect ( https://www.facebook.com/legal/controller_addendum). According to this agreement, you can, for example, address your data subject rights (e.g. information and deletion requests in connection with Facebook Pixel) directly to Facebook.
Please note that the joint responsibility with Facebook is limited only to the initial collection and transmission of your data in connection with the integration of Facebook Pixel. Insofar as Facebook carries out analyses for us on the basis of the Facebook Pixel data and provides us with aggregated reports, this processing is carried out by way of a commissioned data processing agreement which we have concluded with Facebook for these purposes (https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/dataprocessing).
You have the option of giving or withdrawing your consent for Facebook Pixel via our cookie settings at any time.
You can find more information on data protection at Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy
This website uses Google Ads. Google Ads is also an online advertising program of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”).
Within the framework of Google Ads, we use so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set for conversion tracking. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognise that the user has clicked on the ad and been redirected to this page. Each Google Ads client receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked through Google Ads customers’ websites. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Google Ads customers who have opted in to conversion tracking. Customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified.
You have the option of giving or revoking your consent for Google conversion tracking via our cookie settings at any time.
This website uses Google Ads Remarketing, an online advertising programme of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). In connection with Google Ads, we use the remarketing function within the Google Ads service. With the remarketing function, we can offer users of our website on other websites within the Google advertising network (in Google Search or on YouTube, so-called “Google Ads” or on other websites) advertisements based on their interests. For this purpose, the interaction of users on our website is analysed, e.g. which offers the user was interested in, in order to be able to display targeted advertising to users on other sites even after they have visited our website. For this purpose, Google – subject to your consent in our cookie settings – marks the end device used by you with a cookie so that your user behaviour can be recorded and used for targeting interest-based advertising in the above networks.
You have the option to revoke your consent to the placement of this marketing cookie in our cookie settings at any time.
On our website, we also integrate the cookie-based analysis service Twilio Segment. Twilio Segment statistics cookies allow us to measure and analyse the number of visitors, visitor flows and visitor actions on our website. This information in turn helps us to make necessary improvements to our website and improve performance.
For more information about the Segment analytics service and privacy practices, click here.
You can consent to the use of Segment and the associated integration of statistics cookies at any time or revoke our cookie settings.
In addition to the third parties named in Chapter 3.7 for the integration of cookies and third-party content and services, we have also involved external service providers in data processing who support us in the technical provision of the website and other services offered (e.g. operation and maintenance of our website; e-mail marketing).

In addition, the personal data concerning you will be passed on to public authorities and other recipients who are entitled to receive this information on the basis of statutory provisions (e.g. tax authorities, tax advisors, law enforcement agencies, legal counsel).
