III. General Information

The protection of your personal data is very important to us. We process your data primarily to provide a working and easy-to-use website. Your data will always be processed in accordance with the relevant legal regulations.

IV. Content Delivery and Logfiles

Every time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from your computer system. We collect the following data:

  • information about the browser type and version used
  • your operating system
  • your IP address
  • date and time of access
  • websites from which your system reaches our website
  • websites accessed from your system through our website

This data is stored in the log files of our system. There is no storage of the aforementioned data together with other personal data.

It is necessary that our system temporarily stores your IP address so that the website can be delivered to your computer. The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. The legitimate interest lies in the fact that we can improve the functionality and optimization of the website as well as secure our IT systems. Furthermore temporary storage is used for error detection and error prevention. The data will not be used for marketing purposes in this context.

The data is stored until it is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed. If data is required to deliver the website, the necessity ends when the session ends. Your data will be deleted automatically at the end of the session. If stored in our log files, the data will be erased after seven days at the latest. If the data is stored longer than this, your IP address will be deleted or alienated so it cannot be traced back to you or your internet connection.

The hosting of our website is carried out on our behalf by processors which are acting under our authority. They implement appropriate technical and organizational measures in such a manner that processing will meet the requirements of the GDPR and ensure the protection of your rights.

V. Font “Avenir”

For the headings on our website we use the font “Avenir” provided by the company Monotype GmbH, Horexstraße 30, 61352 Bad Homburg, Berlin branch: Bergmannstraße 102, 10961 Berlin. This ensures that the website looks the same for all visitors, regardless of which device and which browser is used.

For this purpose, your personal data will only be processed by us to deliver the website with all headlines to you and personal data will not be transmitted to a third party. Monotype GmbH tracks the number of views of the fonts on our website as well as our data for contractual purposes.

If cookies are generally disabled, you may not able to use all features on our website.

When you visit our website, you will be informed about the above mentioned use of cookies and referred to a Privacy Policy by a cookie consent banner. We ask for your consent to the use of cookies, which you declare by clicking on the "Accept" button. The legal basis for the processing for all types of cookies is therefore Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.

The following sections to no. 1 ("Functional cookies") and to no. 2 ("Analytical Cookies") are meant to explain in detail what types of cookies we use and what data is processed.

Legal basis for the use of technically necessary cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. The website would not be fully usable without placing these cookies and a large number of services could not be offered. The user data collected by functional cookies is not used to create user profiles.

Functional cookies cannot be manually deactivated via our website. However, you have the option of using your browser settings to specify that cookies should generally be rejected. Please note that in this case some functions of the website will not be available.

Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis and optimization of our website. However, we use Matomo with the anonymization feature "Automatically Anonymize Visitor IPs". This anonymization feature shortens your IP address by two bytes so that it is not possible to assign it to you or to the internet connection you are using.

If you do not agree to this processing you have the option of preventing the storage of the cookie by setting it in your internet browser. You will find more detailed information on this under "Cookies" above.

In addition, you have the option of terminating the analysis of your user behavior by opting out.

III. General Information

Fan pages are user accounts that can be set up on Facebook by individuals or businesses. We use the platform maintained by Facebook to present ourselves to you and other users of this social net-work and site visitors, as well as to introduce comments of all kinds to the media and opinion market.

The current version of this Privacy Policy is available under "Data protection" on our Facebook page.

IV. Data processing by Wirtgen

If you have a Facebook account, are logged in and choose to follow our page, you will be shown to use as a "follower". We therefore process the personal data contained in your profile name and your profile picture.

We process the same data if you mark, comment on or share a post with "Like", even if you do not follow our page.

We also process the same data if you send us a message using the contact function. We also process the data that you voluntarily transmit to us in your messages.

In addition, the "Facebook Insight" feature, an indispensable Facebook service, provides us with anonymized statistical information about the users of these pages. These data are collected with the help of so-called "cookies", which Facebook stores on your system. Each of these cookies contains a unique user code that is active for two years and may also be linked to your profile on the platform.

The legal basis for this processing by us in these cases is our legitimate interest pursuant to Article 6 (1) point (f) GDPR. For more information about data processing by Facebook and cookies used by Facebook refer to Section V.

There is no further evaluation of your data by us. We store your data for as long as you follow our page. If you no longer follow our page, we will stop processing your data.

We erase data from messages once the correspondence with you is finished. This is the case where it is apparent from the circumstances that the facts in question have been finally clarified.

V. Data processing by Facebook

When you visit our Facebook page, Facebook collects your IP address and other information stored on your PC in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, as the operator of the Facebook pages, with anonymous statistical information about the use of the Facebook page. More information about this is available on Facebook using the following link:

https://www.facebook.com/help/pages/insights.

The data collected about you in this context is processed by Facebook Ltd. and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union. In its data use guidelines, Facebook describes in general terms the information it receives and how it is used. It also includes information on how to contact Facebook and on setting options for advertisements. The data usage guidelines are available at the following link:

https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy

For the complete Facebook data guidelines go to:

https://www.facebook.com/full_data_use_policy

Facebook does not conclusively and clearly disclose and we do not know how Facebook uses the data from visits to Facebook pages for its own purposes, to what extent activities on the Facebook page are assigned to individual users, how long Facebook stores such data and whether data from a visit to the Facebook page are passed on to third parties. Similarly, we also do not know to what extent your data are used for other Facebook products (Instagram, Messenger and other Facebook products and features).

When accessing a Facebook page, the IP address assigned to your terminal is transmitted to Face-book. According to Facebook, this IP address is anonymized (for "German" IP addresses) and will be deleted after 90 days. In addition, Facebook stores information about its users' terminals (e.g. as part of the "registration notification" function). Facebook therefore may be able to attribute IP addresses to individual users.

If you are currently logged on to Facebook as a user, there is a cookie with your Facebook identification on your terminal. This enables Facebook to understand that you have visited this page and how you have used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Facebook buttons embedded in web pages allow Facebook to track your visits to these web pages and attribute them to your Facebook profile. This data can be used to offer personalized content or advertising.

If you would like to prevent this, you should log out of Facebook or deactivate the function "stay logged in", delete the cookies on your device and close and restart your browser. In this way, Face-book information will be deleted that may be used to directly identify you. This enables you to use our Facebook page without disclosing your Facebook ID. When you access interactive features of the page (like, comment, share, news, etc.), a Facebook login screen will appear. If you log in, Facebook again can recognize you as a specific user.

For information on how to manage or delete existing information about you, go to the following Facebook support pages:

Both Wirtgen and Twitter therefore are Controllers within the meaning of the GDPR.

III. General Information

Twitter profiles are user accounts that can be set up on Twitter by individuals or businesses. We use the platform maintained by Twitter to present ourselves to you and other users of this social network and site visitors, as well as to introduce comments of all kinds to the media and opinion market.

The current version of this Privacy Policy is available under "Data protection" on our Twitter page.

IV. Data processing by Wirtgen

If you have a Twitter account, are logged in and choose to follow our page, you will be shown to us as a "follower". We therefore process the personal data contained in your profile name and your profile picture.

We process the same data if you mark, comment on or share a post with "Like", even if you do not follow our page.

We also process the same data if you send us a message using the contact function. We also pro-cess the data that you voluntarily transmit to us in your messages.

In addition, Twitter provides us with anonymous statistical data on the users of our pages. These data are collected with the help of so-called "cookies", and "pixels" which Twitter stores on your system or incorporates in web sites. These tools allow Twitter to identify your browser with a unique user code, which may also be linked to your profile on the platform.

The legal basis for this processing by us in these cases is our legitimate interest pursuant to Article 6 (1) point (f) GDPR.

For more information about data processing by Twitter and cookies used by Twitter refer to Section V.

There is no further evaluation of your data by us. We store your data for as long as you follow our page. If you no longer follow our page, we will stop processing your data.

We erase data from messages once the correspondence with you is finished. This is the case where it is apparent from the circumstances that the facts in question have been finally clarified.

V. Data processing by Twitter

When you view Twitter content or Twitter products, Twitter records your visit, including the respective page, IP address, browser type, operating system, and cookie information. Twitter uses this infor-mation to improve products and services, for example through personalized suggestions and personalized ads. You can read about what information Twitter collects and how it is protected in the Privacy Policy and in the article on the use of Twitter cookies:

Privacy Policy: https://twitter.com/de/privacy

Use of cookies: https://help.twitter.com/en/rules-and-policies/twitter-cookies

To protect your privacy, Twitter never associates your browser history with your name, email address, phone number or Twitter username, and deletes, obscures or aggregates the data after a maximum of 30 days, as explained in Twitter's Privacy Policy. The browser history is not stored for sites that have this collection disabled (as described below), or that have specific domains, such as .mil and .gov. You and the operators of the websites you visit can also decide for yourself whether Twitter can store the data and how they may be used.

To control whether Twitter stores information about other websites where you view Twitter content, you can change the "Track where you see Twitter content across the web" setting in your "Personali-zation and Data" settings. If you have deactivated this setting or if you are in the European Union or EFTA countries, Twitter does not store or use these website visits. If you have previously saved your browser history, your Twitter usage may still be personalized based on this information.

If you do not want Twitter to serve you customized, interest-based ads within and outside the Twitter offering, there are several ways to disable this feature:

• In Twitter settings, call up the "Personalization and Data" settings and select the "Personalized ads" setting.

• If you are using a mobile device, you can activate the "Limit Ad Tracking" (iOS) or "Opt out of Ads Personalization" (Android) setting on your device.

To control personalization across devices on Twitter, visit your Personalization and data settings and adjust the "Personalize across all your devices" setting. This will control whether Twitter links your account to browsers or devices other than the ones you use to log into Twitter (or if you’re logged out, whether Twitter links the browser or device you’re currently using to any other browsers or devices).

If you are on the web, you can also opt out of Google Analytics by installing Google’s opt-out browser add-on. You can opt out of interest-based Google ads using Google’s Ads Settings.

To control cookies, you can modify your settings in most web browsers to accept or deny cookies or to request your permission each time a site attempts to set a cookie. Although cookies are not required for some parts of our services, Twitter and the Periscope app may not work properly if you disable cookies entirely. For example, you cannot log into twitter.com or pscp.tv if you've disabled all cookie use.

Für Cookies können Sie die Einstellungen in den meisten Browsern so anpassen, dass entweder alle Cookies akzeptiert oder abgelehnt werden oder dass Sie jedes Mal gefragt werden, wenn eine Website einen Cookie auf Ihrem Computer ablegen möchte. Obwohl Cookies nicht für alle Twitter-Dienste notwendig sind, kann es passieren, dass Twitter und die App Periscope nicht einwandfrei laufen, wenn Sie alle Cookies komplett deaktivieren. Sie können sich zum Beispiel nicht bei twitter.com oder pscp.tv anmelden, wenn Sie die Verwendung aller Cookies deaktiviert haben.
