The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this privacy policy.

When you use this website, various personal data are collected. Personal data is data with which you can be personally identified. This privacy policy explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Note from the Competent Body

The person responsible for data processing on this website is:

MindPort GmbH

Giersbergstraße 49

57072 Siegen

Phone: +49 176 7280 2757

E-Mail: info@mindport.co

It is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).

Duration of Storage

Unless a more specific storage period is specified in this privacy policy, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose of the data processing no longer applies. If you assert a legitimate request for deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted unless there are other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g. retention periods under tax or commercial law); in the latter case, the data will be deleted once these reasons no longer apply.

Note on Data Transfer to the USA and other Third Countries

Among other things, we use tools from companies based in the USA or other third countries that are not secure under data protection law. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to these third countries and processed there. We would like to point out that no level of data protection comparable to the EU can be guaranteed in these countries. For example, US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as a data subject being able to take legal action against this. It is therefore not possible for authorities (e.g. intelligence agencies) to process, evaluate and use your data on US servers for surveillance purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.

Google Analytics uses cookies that enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In the case of activation of IP anonymization on this website (see below), however, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within the Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and then shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.

The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google.

You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". This means that IP addresses are processed in abbreviated form and personal references can thus be ruled out. Insofar as the data collected about you has a personal reference, this is therefore immediately excluded and the personal data is deleted immediately.

We use Google Analytics to analyze and regularly improve our website. The statistics obtained allow us to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://privacy-shield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

Google DoubleClick

This website uses the online marketing tool DoubleClick by Google. The provider is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

DoubleClick uses cookies to serve ads that are relevant to users, to improve campaign performance reports, or to prevent a user from seeing the same ads more than once. Via a cookie ID, Google records which ads are served in which browser and can thus prevent them from being served more than once. In addition, DoubleClick can use cookie IDs to record so-called conversions that are related to ad requests. This is the case, for example, when a user sees a DoubleClick ad and later calls up the advertiser's website with the same browser and buys something there. According to Google, DoubleClick cookies do not contain any personal information.

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of DoubleClick, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on the ad from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is the possibility that the provider learns your IP address and stores it.

You can prevent participation in this tracking process in several ways:

  • by setting your browser software accordingly - the suppression of third-party cookies will result in you not receiving third-party ads
  • by disabling cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain www.googleadservices.com (https://www.google.de/settings/ads) with this setting being deleted when you delete your cookies
  • by deactivating the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the self-regulatory campaign "About Ads" via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices, whereby this setting is deleted when you delete your cookies
  • by permanently deactivating it in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browsers at the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this offer to their full extent.

The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO.

For more information about DoubleClick by Google, please visit https://www.google.de/doubleclick and http:/support.google.com/adsense/answer/2839090, and about Google's privacy practices: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy. Alternatively, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) website at http://www.networkadvertising.org. Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy shield, http://privacyshield.gov/EU-US-framework.

Google Tag Manager

This website uses the Google Tag Manager. The provider is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Through this service, website tags can be managed via an interface. The Google Tag Manager itself does not set cookies but only tags and does not collect any personal data. The service triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. However, Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at the domain or cookie level, this remains in place for all tracking tags that are implemented with Google Tag Manager.

For more information about Google Tag Manager, please refer to the Google Privacy Policy and the Google Terms of Service at the following links: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de and https://policies.google.com/terms?hl=de.

Google Ads Conversions

We use the offer of Google Adwords on this website to draw attention to our offers with the help of advertising media (so-called Google Adwords) on external websites. The provider is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

We can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are based on the data of the advertising campaigns. In this way, we pursue the interest of showing you the advertising that is of interest to you, making our website more interesting for you and achieving a fair calculation of the advertising costs.

These advertisements are delivered by Google via so-called "ad servers". For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as display of the ads or clicks by users, can be measured. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Adwords will store a cookie on your computer. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. For this cookie, the unique cookie ID, the number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), the last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values.

These cookies enable Google to recognize your internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of the website of an Adwords customer and the cookie stored on his computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. A different cookie is assigned to each Adwords customer. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across Adwords customers' websites. The Ad Server cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. We ourselves do not collect or process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. Based on these evaluations, we can see which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising tools; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information. Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of Adwords Conversion, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on the ad from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged into a Google service, there is a possibility that the provider learns your IP address and stores it.

You can prevent participation in this tracking process in several ways:

  • by setting your browser software accordingly - suppressing third-party cookies will result in you not receiving third-party advertisements
  • by disabling cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain www.googleadservices.com (https://www.google.de/settings/ads) with this setting being deleted when you delete your cookies
  • by deactivating the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the self-regulatory campaign "About Ads" via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices, whereby this setting is deleted when you delete your cookies
  • by permanently deactivating it in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browsers at the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this offer to their full extent.

The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Google Adwords Remarketing

In addition to Google Adwords Conversion, we use the Google Adwords Remarketing application. Through this application, our advertisements can be displayed to you after a visit to our website in your subsequent internet use. This is done by means of cookies stored in your browser, via which your usage behavior when visiting various websites is recorded and evaluated by Google. In this way, Google can determine your previous visit to our website. According to its own statements, Google does not combine the data collected in the context of Google Remarketing with your personal data that may be stored by Google (e.g. because you have registered for a Google service such as GMail).
