More Features of our Website
Using Google Analytics
The Website uses Google Analytics, a Google Inc. (“Google”) web analytics service. The Google Analytics service uses so-called “Cookies”, text files that are stored on your electronic device and make it possible to analyze your use of the Website. The information generated by Cookies on your use of the Website is transmitted and stored by Google on its servers in the USA. If you enable IP Anonymization on this site, part of your IP address will be deleted by Google within the Member States of the European Union or the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the complete IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. On behalf of the webmaster, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the Website, to compile reports on Website activities, and to provide the webmaster with other linked services related to the use of the Website and the Internet. In this context, the IP address transferred from your browser through Google Analytics will not correlate to any other data held by Google.
This Website uses Google Analytics with the “anonymizeIp ” feature. In this way the processing of IP addresses is curtailed, the identification of persons can be ruled out. If, however, you receive a personal report from the collected data, it is immediately blocked and at the same time your personal data is deleted.
We use Google Analytics to regularly analyze and improve the use of our site. With the received statistics, we can improve our Website and make it more user-friendly. For exceptional cases where personal data is transmitted to the USA, Google complies with the EU-US Privacy Shield Legal Framework, www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for using Google Analytics is our legitimate interest in ensuring the optimization of our Website [GDPR Art. 6§1(f)].

This site uses Google Analytics to analyze the flow of visitors in relation to the cross-device analysis carried out with the user ID. You can disable cross-device analysis in the Customer account by using the “My data”, “Personal data” option.
Using Social Media Plug-ins
We are currently using the following “plug-ins” on social media: [Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Xing, t3n, Linkedln, Flattr]. We use the so-called two-click solution. When you visit our site, initially no personal data is transmitted to the Plug-ins providers. The Plug-in provider can be identified by its initial letter or logo on the checkbox/button. We give you the opportunity to contact the Plug-in provider directly via the Button. Only if you click the marked field and enable it, will the Plug-in provider receive the information that you have gone to our respective site. In the case of Facebook and Xing, according to information from their respective providers in Greece, your IP address is immediately anonymized. By activating the Plug-in, your personal data is transmitted to the respective provider and stored there (to US providers). Since the Plug-in provider is collecting data, especially through cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies through your browser security settings before clicking the relevant box.
We do not affect the data collected or the data processing process, nor do we know the full extent of the data collection, the purposes of the processing or the retention period. We also do not have any information about the deletion of data collected by the Plug-in provider.
The Plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is particularly carried out (even for not-signed-in users) in order to display on-demand advertising and to inform social media users about the activities on our Website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles after you have previously contacted the respective Plug-in providers to exercise this right. Through the plug-ins we offer you the possibility to interact with social networks and other users, so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user.The legal basis for the use of the Plug-ins is our legitimate interest in ensuring the optimum operation of our Website as provided for in Article 6§1(f) of the GDPR.
Data transfer takes place regardless of whether you have an account with the Plug-in provider and whether you are connected with them. If you are connected to the Plug-In provider, the data collected by us will be made available directly to your existing account with the Plug-In provider. If you click on the activated button and for example share the page, the Plug-in provider also saves this information in the user account and publicly announces / shares it with your contacts. We recommend logging out regularly after using a social media tool, especially before activating the button, as this will prevent your profile from being posted to the Plug-in Provider.
Embed YouTube Videos
We have embedded YouTube videos, which are stored at http://www.youtube.com and can be played directly from our site. All of this is integrated into the “Extended Data Protection Mode”, which means that unless you play videos, nothing about you as a user will be uploaded to YouTube.
