5. Plugins und Tools

Google Web Fonts

This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to Google’s servers. This informs Google that your IP address has been used to access this website. The use of Google WebFonts is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the uniform presentation of the typeface on his website. If a corresponding consent has been requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. A DSGVO; the consent can be revoked at any time.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font from your computer will be used.

6. General information on our presence in social networks

In order to present our company in the best possible way and to communicate with you as a user, customer or interested party and to be able to inform you about our offered services, we make use of our presence in social networks.

You can find us on the following platforms or social networks:

  • Facebook
  • Instagram
  • LinkedIn

When using social networks, data is processed outside the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). An equivalent level of data protection as exists in the EU cannot be guaranteed in all countries outside the EU.
In this context, it may lead to risks for you as a user if the transferred data is processed in so-called third countries with a non-adequate level of data protection.

This makes it more difficult to enforce known user rights. In addition, your data may not be processed in your interest by the provider in the third country.
If providers from the USA have certified themselves under the so-called Privacy Shield Agreement (an agreement on data protection between the USA and the EU), these providers are required to comply with the data protection standards of the EU. This does not ensure compliance with EU data protection standards.

The processing purposes pursued by the social networks usually differ from ours. Thus, it mostly happens that the data collected from you in social networks is processed for purposes of market research, advertising and creation of user profiles for personalized advertising.

To realize this, cookies are used, which record user behavior and enable profiling of the user. A concrete list of the processing purposes of the user data can be found in the data protection notices of the respective providers. By making the appropriate settings in your user account, you can limit the profiling, at least to a certain extent. For the exact procedure, please read the corresponding data protection information of the respective provider.
