When you actively provide us information due to a request
We will collect and process data you actively provided to us for instance when filling in online forms or when contacting us by other means of communication such as e-mail, telephone or mail. In case of online forms, the purpose for which you provide us with your personal data can be found on the form itself.
If you contact us via our website we store information such as:

- type of request and possible further information for the purpose of responding to your inquiry.
We do this based on your prior given consent or, as applicable, based on a legal justification. We will not use the information as a basis for contacting you further, unless you have given us your explicit consent. Your contact details will be stored for up to six months after the inquiry has been completed unless legal obligation exists to retain data for a longer duration. Details provided on online forms are collected using a secure connection to protect personal information from manipulation or unauthorized access. Please be aware that regular e-mail traffic is not secure.
When you activate Social Media Plug-ins and Activity Feeds
If you activate plug-ins or activity feeds of social media providers (such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, Instagram, and WhatsApp), your web browser will connect to the servers of the respective providers and send your specific user data. These plug-ins and activity feeds are deactivated by default. As soon as you activate such plug-ins or activity feeds, you provide your consent to transmit your data.
In addition, if you are currently logged in to a social network of one of the above mentioned providers; your activity may be linked to your user account at the same time.
a) Implementation of “Shariff”
In order to secure your privacy, we are using a tool called “Shariff”. Shariff enables you to decide whether and when to activate any plug-ins on our website and, by doing so, whether to initiate a transfer of user specific data to the provider.
b) Activating plug-ins
Only if you specifically activate a plug-in via Shariff, your browser will connect to the servers of the respective provider and a transfer of user specific data (as further referenced below) to that provider will occur. You activate a plug-in via Shariff, by clicking on one of the respective share buttons.
c) Activating activity feeds
If you activate the activity feed by clicking on the inactive mask on our website, your browser will connect to the servers of each provider and a transfer of user specific data (as further referenced below) to each provider will occur. Please note that a cookie is set automatically upon clicking on the mask and will be stored for the duration of your browsing session. During this time the mask will not be shown again.
