Data protection

As a user of our website, you will receive all necessary information in this data protection declaration on how, to what extent and for what purpose we or third-party providers collect and use data from you. Your data is collected and used strictly in accordance with the legal requirements, in particular the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (new). We feel particularly committed to the confidentiality of your personal data and therefore work strictly within the limits set by the legal requirements. This personal data is collected on a voluntary basis if we can. We also only pass this data on to third parties with your express consent. We ensure a high level of security with particularly confidential data such as payment transactions or with regard to your inquiries to us by using SSL encryption. At this point, however, we would not like to fail to point out the general dangers of Internet use, over which we have no influence. Without further precautions, your data is not secure, especially when it comes to e-mail, and it may be possible for third parties to collect it.

Purpose of data processing

When using our website, the following data is stored for organizational and technical reasons: the names of the pages you have visited, the browser you are using and your operating system, date and time of access, search engines used, names of downloaded files and your IP address.

We evaluate this technical data anonymously and only for statistical purposes in order to be able to continuously optimize our website and make our website even more attractive. This data is stored separately from other personal information on secure systems. No conclusions are drawn about individual persons.

Processing of personal data

We process personal data in the context of data avoidance and data economy only to the extent and for as long as it is necessary for the use of our website or as required by law. We take the protection of your personal data seriously and strictly adhere to the relevant legal regulations and this data protection declaration when collecting and processing personal data. If the purpose of the data collection no longer applies or the end of the statutory storage period has been reached, the collected data will be blocked or deleted. Our website can be used regularly without passing on personal data. When we collect personal data – for example your name, your address or your e-mail address – this data collection is voluntary. This data will not be made known to third parties without your express consent. Please note that data on the Internet is generally not always transmitted securely. Protection during data exchange cannot be guaranteed, particularly in e-mail traffic.

The data collected is not used for automated individual decision-making, profiling or scoring.

Your rights as a data subject

You will receive information at any time free of charge about the personal data we have stored about you as well as the origin, the recipient and the purpose of the data processing. You also have the right to request the correction, blocking or deletion of your data. This does not apply to data that is stored due to legal regulations or required for proper business transactions. So that a data lock can be implemented at any time, data is kept in a lock file for control purposes. If data is not covered by a statutory archiving obligation, we will delete your data at your request. If the archiving obligation applies, we will block your data. For all questions and concerns regarding the correction, blocking or deletion of personal data, please contact our data protection officer using the contact details in this data protection declaration or the address given in the legal notice.

If you do not see your rights fully protected when handling your personal data, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority responsible for you.

We use cookies on our website. These small text files are stored on your PC by our server. They support the display of our website and help you to move around our website. Cookies collect data about your IP address to your browser, your operating system and your internet connection. We do not combine this information with personal data and do not pass it on to third parties. Under no circumstances are cookies used by us to bring malicious or espionage programs onto your computer. You can also use our website without the use of cookies, which means that some presentations and functions of our offer may only work to a limited extent. If you want to deactivate cookies, you can do this via special settings in your browser. Please use its help function to make the appropriate changes. You can manage online ad cookies via the following links: for the USA for Europe

Collection of access data

The delivery and presentation of the content via our website technically requires the collection of certain data. When you access our website, these so-called server log files are recorded by us or the provider of the web space. These log files do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about you and your person. The corresponding information consists of the Name of the website, the file, the current date, the amount of data, the web browser and its version, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet provider, the referrer URL as the page from which you switched to our site, as well as the corresponding IP address . We use this data to display and deliver our content and for statistical purposes. The information supports the provision and constant improvement of our offer. We also reserve the right to check the mentioned data retrospectively if there is any suspicion of illegal use of our offer.

Collection of application data

The system saves the personal data that an applicant provides via our application portal (operated by Softgarden) for a maximum of 6 months. The completion of the application process is decisive for the beginning of the storage period. If the applicant is asked to take part in online test procedures on the Hogrefe platform in the further course of the process, the same rule applies here for the storage of the data – Surname, first name, email address, gender, date of birth (a maximum of 6 months from the completion of the application process). Applications that reach us by e-mail are forwarded directly to our application portal (see above). The applicant’s e-mail and all attachments are deleted immediately, which means that no personal data of applicants exist or remain in our systems. Below you will find links to Softgarden and Hogrefe’s data protection regulations:



Third Party Content and Services

The offer on our website may also include content, services and performances from other providers that complement our offer. Examples of such offers are maps from Google Maps, YouTube videos or third-party graphics. Calling up these services from third parties regularly requires your IP address to be transmitted. This enables these providers to perceive your user IP address and also to save it. We try very hard to only include third-party providers who use IP addresses solely to deliver the content. However, we have no influence on which third party provider may save the IP address. This storage can, for example, serve statistical purposes. If we become aware of storage processes by third-party providers, we will inform our users of this fact immediately. In this context, please also note the special data protection declarations for individual third-party providers and service providers whose services we use on our website.

You can also find them in this data protection declaration.

Google AdWords

We use Google AdWords, an online advertising program from Google Inc. Conversion tracking is also used here.

If you visit our website as a user and the cookie is still working, we and Google will recognize that you clicked on the corresponding ad and were forwarded to our site. A different cookie is assigned to each Google AdWords customer. This means that cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of the AdWords customers. Conversion statistics for AdWords customers are created with the data obtained through conversion cookies. As customers, we find out the total number of users who reacted to our ad and were then redirected to a website that was tagged with a conversion tracking tag. During this process, we do not receive any information with which we could personally identify you as a user. If you reject the tracking process, the Google conversion tracking cookie can be deactivated via your internet browser. If necessary, use the help function of the browser for further information.
