1. General information and principles of data processing

We are pleased that you are visiting our website. The protection of your privacy and the protection of your data, the so-called personal data, is an important concern to us. 
In accordance with Article 4(1) GDPR, personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as first and last name, address, telephone number, email address, but also an IP address. 

Data that cannot be linked to your person, for example through anonymization, is not personal data. Processing of personal data (e.g. collection, storage, readout, retrieval, use, transmission, deletion or destruction) pursuant to Article 4(2) GDPR always requires a legal basis or a consent. Processed personal data must be deleted as soon as the purpose of their processing has been achieved, and there are no longer any legally prescribed retention obligations.

Here you will find information on the handling of your personal data upon visiting our website. In order to provide the functions and services of our website, it is necessary for us to collect your personal data. 

In the following, we explain the type and scope, purpose, legal basis and storage period of the respective data processing.

This data protection policy only applies to this particular website. It does not apply for other websites which are merely referenced via hyperlink. We cannot assume responsibility for the confidential handling of your personal data on these third-party websites, since we do not have any influence in the data protection compliance by these companies. Please inform yourself on the handling of personal data by these companies directly on their websites.

4. Provision and use of the website / server log files 

a) Type and extent of data processing 
When you access our website (i.e. when you merely view it without registering and without otherwise providing us with information), we process the following personal data, which your browser automatically transmits to our server:

  • Amount of transferred data 
  • Web address from which the page or file was accessed or the requested function was initiated (referrer URL)
  • IP-address 
  • Browser
  • Language and version of the browser software
  • Operating system

d) Storage period 
The aforementioned data will be recorded for the duration of the communication process. 
To guarantee IT security, the IP-address will be saved for an additional short period of time of no more than seven calendar days. 

e) Right of objection
If your personal data is processed in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) GDPR you have a right of objection in accordance with Article 21 GDPR.

5. Adobe TypeKit WebFonts

The integration of these web fonts is carried out through a server call, usually one of Adobe in the United States. According to Adobe this sends the following data to the server:

  • Fonts served
  • Web Project ID
  • Web Project JavaScript version (string)
  • Web Project type (string "configurable" or "dynamic")
  • Embed type (whether you are using the JavaScript or CSS embed code)

  • Service providing the fonts (e.g., Adobe Fonts)
  • Server serving the fonts (e.g., Adobe Fonts servers or Enterprise CDN)
  • Hostname of page loading the fonts

We would like to point out that the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) has doubts about the adequacy of the level of data protection in the USA. In particular, there is a risk that personal data may be processed by government authorities for control and monitoring purposes, possibly also without any legal remedy.

The purpose of using Adobe Typekit Web Fonts is the uniform presentation of fonts.

The legal basis is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is a uniform presentation across all devices as well as improved loading times and a lower administrative effort.

d) Storage period
The stored data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer needed for our purposes.

e) Right of objection
You have the right to object to such processing. You have a right of objection pursuant to Article 21 GDPR. However, we have compelling reasons worthy of protection for processing the data, because without processing of these data we can not ensure data security of the website.
