This includes the following: Content of the request (specific page), date and time of the request, quantity of data, web browser and web browser version, operating system, the domain name of your Internet provider, the referrer URL (the page from which you access our site), access status and the IP address.
Lawful basis is Article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, point (f) GDPR. Without this data, it would not be technically possible to deliver and display the contents of this website. In this respect, the collection of data is absolutely necessary. In addition, we use anonymous information for statistical purposes. This helps us to optimize our website and technology. Furthermore, we reserve the right to subsequently inspect log files if we suspect illegal use of our website.
The legal basis for technically essential cookies is Article 6 (1) sentence 1 (f) GDPR, and also Article 6 (1) sentence 1 (b) GDPR when entering into contracts through the website. Technically non-essential analytical cookies are only used on the basis of your consent pursuant to Article 6 (1) sentence 1 (a) GDPR. You can change your browser settings to reflect your preferences, for example to accept third-party cookies or to refuse all cookies. However, in this case we inform you that you may not be able to use all features of this website You may withdraw your consent to technically non-essential cookies at any time with future effect by clicking here.
Use of web analysis systems
Following your consent, our websites use the data-minimizing web analysis service Matomo to statistically analyze visitor access. The information obtained through this service is used to analyze the use of our website and our reach. Lawful basis is Article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, point (a) GDPR. To carry out this analysis, the usage information generated by the cookie (including your anonymized IP address) is transferred to our server and stored for the purpose of later analysis and optimization of our website content. Your IP address is anonymized before being transferred to our server, so that you as a user remain anonymous to us. Information concerning how our visitors use our website will only be transferred within the BAUER Group or to processors engaged on our behalf. It will not, however, be transferred to third parties unless we are legally obligated to do so in exceptional cases. In addition, these cookies are automatically deleted 12 months after you granted consent if and as long as there are no statutory retention obligations.
If you contact us via an online form or by e-mail, we will store the information you have provided so that we can respond to your inquiry and ask any follow-up questions. Lawful basis is Art. 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, point (a) GDPR unless establishing contact is justified for fulfillment of a contract in accordance with lawful basis is Article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, point (b) GDPR. We also forward your inquiry to the appropriate departments within our Group of companies where necessary to respond to your request. We delete the data collected for this purpose once storage is no longer required, or restrict processing if we are required by law to retain the data.
We encourage communication via social media and place social media links (e.g. YouTube, Facebook, Xing) on our website. When you visit our site, initially no personal information is passed on to the social media providers. The provider of the plug-in can be identified by its initial letter or logo on the icon. We allow you to access the provider’s website via the stored link. In accessing their website, you leave our site and your data is processed by the social media under their own privacy policies. For more information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and the processing of data by the social media provider, please refer to the privacy policies of these providers on their websites. These privacy policies also provide further information about your rights and settings options for the protection of your privacy.
Embedded YouTube videos
When you visit the website, YouTube is informed that you have opened the corresponding page on our website. In addition, the personal information that your browser sends to our server is forwarded to YouTube. This happens regardless of whether you are logged into a user account provided by YouTube or do not have a user account. YouTube stores your data as usage profiles and uses it for purposes of advertising, market research and/or tailored website design. This analysis, which even applies to anonymous users, is primarily used for placing custom ads and informing other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, but you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.
Integration of Google Maps
We use Google Maps on this website. This allows us to display interactive maps directly on the website and allows you to easily use the map feature. The map service is not loaded until you have agreed to cookies for marketing purposes in the cookie banner or given your consent on the subpage where the map service is provided. The lawful basis for this is Article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, point (a) GDPR. The content is not loaded for website visitors until consent has been given, so Google receives the information that you have requested on the subpage of our website. In addition, the personal information that your browser sends to our server is forwarded to Google. This happens regardless of whether you are logged into a user account provided by Google or do not have a user account. When you are logged in to Google, your data is associated directly with your account. If you do not wish to be associated with your profile on Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses it for purposes of advertising, market research and/or tailored website design. This analysis, which even applies to anonymous users, is primarily used for placing custom ads and informing other users of the social network about your activities on our website.
We take technical and organizational security precautions to protect your data from unauthorized access. In addition to securing the operating environment, we use encryption in some areas (online application, customer account, contact form). The information you provide is then transmitted in encrypted form using the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol to prevent misuse of your data by third parties. You can tell that a page is secure if the status bar of your browser has a closed padlock icon and the address bar has "https" in the prefix.
