We take data protection seriously
The protection of your privacy when we process your personal data is an important concern for us. When you visit our website, our web servers automatically store the IP of your Internet service provider, the website from which you visit us, the pages which you visit when you are on our website, as well as the date and duration of the visit. This information is essential for the technical transmission of the web pages and for secure server operation. No personalised evaluation of this data is carried out.
If you send us data via the contact form, this data is stored on our servers as part of the data back-up process. Your data will be used by us only to process your request. Your data will also be dealt with in the strictest of confidence. There is no disclosure to third parties.

Personal data is data about your person. This includes your name, address and email address. You do not have to disclose any personal data in order to be able to visit our Internet site. In some cases, we need your name and address as well as further information in order to be able to offer you the requested service.
The same applies if we supply you with information material on request or if we answer your enquiries. In these cases, we will always point this out to you. Furthermore, we store only the data that you have sent to us either automatically or voluntarily.
If you use one of our services, we generally only collect the data that is necessary for us to be able to provide you with our service. We may ask you for further information, although this is only on a voluntary basis. Whenever we process personal data, we do so in order to be able to provide you with our service or to pursue our commercial objectives.
Automatically stored non-personal data
When you visit our Internet pages, we store certain information for administrative and technical reasons. These are: type and version of the browser used, date and time of access, as well as the IP address.
This data is anonymised and used only for statistical purposes or to improve our Internet and online services.
This anonymised data is then stored on secure systems – separately from personal data – and cannot be matched to any specific individuals. This means that your personal data is protected at all times.
Only the Internet protocol address is saved during this process – but no other personal data. This information, which is stored in the cookies, enables us to recognise you automatically the next time you visit our website, thereby making it easier for you to use our website.
Google Analytics with Anonymisation Function
We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereafter referred to as “Google”. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files which are saved on your computer and as a result enable you to analyse the use of the website.
The information generated by these cookies, such as the time, place and frequency of your website visit, including your IP address, is transmitted to and stored by Google in the United States.
We use Google Analytics on our website with the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp”. In this case, your IP address is shortened by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states of the European Economic Area Agreement and therefore made anonymous.
Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our site, compile reports on website activities for us and provide further services related to website and internet use. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on Google’s behalf.
According to its own information, Google will under no circumstances associate your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of the cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; we point out, however, that in this case it is possible that you will not be able to fully use all the features of our site.
If you have agreed that your web and app browser history may be linked by Google to your Google Account and that information from your Google Account may be used to personalize advertisements, Google will use your information together with Google Analytics data to create target group lists for cross-device remarketing. For this purpose, Google Analytics first collects your Google authenticated ID on our website, which is linked to your Google Account (i.e. personal data). Google Analytics will then temporarily link your ID with your Google Analytics data in order to optimize our target groups.
If you do not agree to this, you can turn it off by means of corresponding settings in the “My Account” section of your Google Account.
We have taken technical and administrative security precautions to protect your personal data against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. All of our employees and the service providers working for us are obliged to comply with the valid data protection laws.
Whenever we collect and process personal data, it is encrypted before being transmitted. This means that your data cannot be misused by third parties. Our security precautions are subject to a constant improvement process and our privacy policies are constantly being revised. Please make sure that you have the latest version.
Whistleblower platform GlobaLeaks
We use the software product GlobaLeaks from the company Whistleblowing Solutions Impresa Sociale S.r.l. to comply with the EU Whistleblower Directive. The hosting of the product is done on our own servers, thereby ensuring that no transmission of the collected data to third parties takes place. During the reporting of a hint, no personal data is stored and it is done anonymously. We store your submitted hint for 3 years after completion of all related measures. As part of IT security measures, we process log files to detect irregularities, among other things. The collected data is not combined with your hint, so that no identity loss can occur. We base ourselves on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. The collected log files are stored for 3 years – after that they are deleted.
Please contact us at any time if you would like to know which personal data we store about you or if you would like to have it corrected or deleted. Furthermore, you have the right to restrict processing of the data (Art. 18 GDPR), a right of objection to such processing (Art. 21 GDPR) and the right to data transferability (Art. 20 GDPR). In these cases, please contact us directly.
