§ 1 Information about the collection of personal data

1. Below you will find information about the collection of personal data during use of our website. Personal data is any data that relates to you personally, e.g. name, address, email address, usage behaviour

2. The processing of your personal data will always comply with the provisions of the EU GDPR, and all other relevant data protection provisions. The legal bases for the data processing derive, in particular, from Art. 6 EU GDPR and in Germany in the online sphere especially from the TDDDG [Telecommunications Telemedia Data Protection Act, abbreviated in German to TDDDG]).

3. The responsible party according to Art. 4 Para. 7 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is Witzenmann GmbH, Östliche Karl-Friedrich-Straße 134, 75175 Pforzheim, Email: (see our Legal Company Notice). You can contact our data protection commissioner at:

4. When you make contact with us via email or a contact form, we will save the data you communicate to us (e.g. your email address, name and telephone number if applicable) so that we can answer your questions. The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR. We delete data generated in this regard after it is no longer required or limit its processing if there are legal retention obligations.

5. If we make use of commissioned service providers for specific functions on our website or would like to use your data for commercial purposes, we inform you about the details of these particular processes below. In doing so we also cite the defined storage period criteria.

§ 2 Your rights

  • right to information,
  • right to erasure or deletion,
  • right to restrictions on processing,
  • right to object to processing,
  • right to data transferability.

To assert these rights, please contact or by post at Witzenmann GmbH, Östliche Karl-Friedrich-Straße 134, 75175 Pforzheim.

2. You also have the right to complain about our processing of your personal data to a data protection oversight authority.

Rights of objection

In connection with rights of objection, please note the following:

If we process your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object to this data processing at any time without providing any reasons. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is connected with direct advertising.

If you object to processing for the purpose of direct marketing, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes. The objection is free of charge and can be made without formalities, if possible to:

In the event that we process your data to protect legitimate interests, you may object to this processing at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

We will then no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling reasons, deemed worthy of protection, for the processing, which take precedence over your interests, rights and freedoms or when the processing is performed to assert, exercise or defend against legal claims.

§ 3 Collection of personal data when visiting our website

1. When the website is being used for purely informational purposes, meaning that you do not register or transmit any other information to us, we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. If you would like to view our website, we collect the following data, which for technical reasons we require to be able to show our website to you and to guarantee its stability and security (the legal basis for this is Art. 6 Para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR):

  • IP address,
  • date and time of the request,
  • time zone difference compared to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT),
  • content of the request (specific page),
  • access status/http-Statuscode,
  • amount of data transferred in each case,
  • website the request comes from,
  • browser,
  • operating system and its UI,
  • language and version of the browser software.

2. In addition to the data mentioned previously, cookies will be saved on your computer during use of our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored in a categorised form by the browser you use. The site that sets the cookie (in this case us) gets specific information from it. Cookies cannot run any programs or transfer viruses to your computer. They are used to make the Internet presentation as a whole more user-friendly and more efficient.

3. Use of cookies:
This website uses so-called cookies. They are used to make our website more user-friendly, efficient and secure. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your end device and are stored by your browser (locally). Cookies contain only pseudonymous, and for the most part even anonymous, data. Some cookies remain for the duration of a browser session (so-called session cookies), other are stored for the long term (so-called persistent cookies, e.g. consent settings). The latter are deleted automatically after the indicated time in each case (generally 6 months). As well as our own cookies, some cookies controlled by third parties are used. These cookies use the information contained in the cookies to, for example, show content to you or record pages you have visited.

On the grounds of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f EU GDPR) we place technically necessary cookies that are absolutely required to operate the website and ensure its functional capability. Furthermore, without your consent, we place cookies whose sole purpose is the storage of or access to information stored in the end device for the transfer of messages or when they are absolutely necessary to provide the service you have expressly requested, § 25 para. 2 TDDDG.

With your consent, other cookies are used that enable us or third parties to analyse how our services are used. This allows us to create content that meets the needs of our users. In addition, cookies make it possible for us to measure the effectiveness of a specific advertisement and to arrange for its placement according to users' topical interests. The legal basis for this is your express consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a EU GDPR, § 25 para. 1 TDDDG [Telecommunications Telemedia Data Protection Act]).

You can withdraw your consent with future effect and change the cookie settings at any time through our consent banner. Note that changes must be made separately for every end device.

Privacy settings

If you maintain accounts with third-party service providers used by us and are logged in there, your data may be linked with the account in question. You can prevent such an association being made by not issuing, or withdrawing, your consent to the cookies concerned, or logging out of the respective third-party service providers in advance.

Most browsers accept cookies automatically. You can also deactivate, restrict or delete cookies manually through the settings in your browser or use software to do so. If you disable cookie placement, comprehensive use of our website is not possible or only possible with restrictions.

Please also take note of our statement in the section for the particular service that makes use of cookies.

§ 4 Consent Management

Our website uses the Consent Manager "UserCentrics" from Usercentrics GmbH, Sendlinger Straße 7, 80331 Munich, Germany. UserCentrics is a technical solution we use to obtain your consent to specific, consent-dependent forms of data processing (e.g. analysis, tracking, etc.). Using UserCentrics allows us to inform you about the cookies and tools used. By using UserCentrics, you are able to select which cookies and tools you definitively want to permit or reject. This allows you to make an informed decision about handing over your data and allows us to use cookies and tools in a way that is transparent, documented and compliant with data protection laws.

UserCentrics processes your personal data to record your decision about the authorisation of cookies and tools as well as the display of pop-ups by User Centrics and to store this for the next time you visit our website. This includes the corresponding cookie with your (consent) decision as well as additional usage data, e.g. IP address, domain names, query time, server data (e.g. data transfer types, server status, etc.), country, browser and operating system.

You can find additional information and UserCentrics' privacy declaration at: https://usercentrics.com/privacy-policy/

§ 5 Additional functions and offers on our website

1. Alongside the purely informational use of our website, we offer various services that you may make use of if you are interested. For this purpose you generally need to indicate personal data that we use for the performance of the particular service and for which the previously cited data processing principles apply.

2. We sometimes use external service providers to process your data. We select and commission these service providers with care. They are bound to our instructions and monitored regularly. Contracts prescribed by data protection law have been concluded with the service providers used.

3. In addition, we may pass on your personal data to third parties if contracts are concluded or similar services are offered by us in conjunction with partners. You will receive more detailed information when entering your personal data or below the description of the offer.

4. If our service providers or partners are based outside of the European Economic Area (EEA), we shall inform you about the consequences of this circumstance in the offer description.

§ 6 Contact via contact form

1. When you make contact with us via our contact form, your details will be processed for the purpose of handling your contact inquiry.

2. The legal basis for the processing of the data via our contact form is Art. 6 Para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b) GDPR.

3. As soon as you have contacted us via the contact form, the data you have indicated and the contact inquiry will automatically be stored in our Customer Relationship Management System ("CRM System").

4. The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. This is the case when the particular conversation with you is over and the matter has been conclusively cleared up. If your contact with us via our contact form results in a contractual relationship with us, we save the data you have provided until the contractual relationship has ended and no claims arising on this basis can be asserted anymore. In the case of any legal archiving obligations, the data is deleted once the retention duties per commercial and tax law (AO, HGB) have expired.

5. If you contact us by email, we will process the data you have transmitted in order to process your specific request. Even in this case, the above sections apply accordingly.

§ 7 Tracking and analysis services Google Analytics

We use the Google Analytics tracking tool from Google Ireland Limited on our website. Thus, your interactions with our website as a user will be recorded and evaluated systematically.

As a result, the following data of yours will be stored:
• The first three bytes of your IP address
• A Google Analytics ID assigned to you
• The accessed website
• The referrer (the website from which you came to the accessed website)
• The additional sub-pages accessed
• The time spent on the website
• The frequency of accessing the website
• Browser type used
• Language settings used
• Device and operating system used

Your personal data will be processed based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) GDPR, § 25 para. 1 TDDDG. You can revoke your consent at any time by interacting with the privacy button. The purpose of processing your personal data by the Google Analytics service is to analyse the interaction of our website visitors with our website. By evaluating the data obtained here, we can optimise our offer and increase user-friendliness. We delete or anonymise the data collected by Google Analytics as soon as it is no longer required for our purposes. This is the case after 14 days at the latest.

MyFonts Counter
On our website we use the MyFonts Counter, a web analysis service from MyFonts Inc., 500 Unicorn Park Drive, Woburn, MA 01801, USA. Due to the license terms, page view tracking is carried out by counting the number of visits to the website for statistical purposes and transmitting it to MyFonts. MyFonts only collects anonymised data. The data may be passed on by activating Java Script code in your browser. MyFonts Counter is used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest as defined in Art. 6 para. 1(1) lit. f GDPR, § 25 para. 1 TDDDG. In order to completely prevent the execution of JavaScript code from MyFonts, you can also install a JavaScript blocker (e.g. www.noscript.net). We delete or anonymise the data collected by MyFonts Counter as soon as it is no longer required for our purposes. This is currently the case after 30 days. Further information on MyFonts Counter can be found in the data protection information of MyFonts at https://www.myfonts.com/a/font/legal/website-use-privacy-policy

Google Tag Manager
This website uses the Google Tag Manager. This service allows website tags to be managed via an interface. The Google Tool Manager only implements tags. This means: No cookies are used and no personal data is recorded. The Google Tool Manager triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. However, the Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been carried out at the domain or cookie level, it will remain in effect for all tracking tags, provided that they are implemented with the Google Tag Manager.

Google Maps
We use Google Maps (API) from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google") on our website. To ensure data protection, Google Maps is deactivated when you enter this website for the first time. This prevents your data from being transferred to Google the first time you
enter the site. A direct connection to the Google servers is only established if you activate Google Maps yourself (consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) GDPR), § 25 para. 1 TDDDG. You can revoke your consent at any time by interacting with the privacy button. After activation, Google Maps will save your IP address. This is then generally sent to a Google server in the USA and saved there. You can find more information on handling user data in Google's privacy policy: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

Google Ads Conversion-Tracking
We use the online advertising programme "Google Ads" and in the scope of this, Conversion Tracking (visit action evaluation). The Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service of Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google"). If your general place of residence is in the European Economic Area or Switzerland, Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland) is the company responsible for your data.
Please note that this service may transfer data outside the European Union and the European Economic Area and to a country that does not provide an adequate level of data protection. If the data is transferred to the US, there is a risk that your data may be processed by US authorities for control and monitoring purposes without you potentially having any appeal options. However, we take the possible and necessary measures under data protection law in accordance with Art. 44 et seq. EU-DS-GVO to establish the level of data protection in the third country.
The information obtained with the help of the Conversion Cookie is used to create Conversion Statistics. In doing so, this informs us of the total number of users who clicked on one of our ads and were redirected to a page tagged with a Conversion Tracking Tag. When you click on an ad placed by Google, cookies for Conversion Tracking are stored on your computer. These cookies have a limited validity, contain personal data, but however, are not used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and ourselves are able to recognise that you have clicked on the ad and have been redirected to this page. Each Google Ads client receives a different cookie.
The cookies are stored for 12 months and then deleted.
The processing is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 p. 1 lit. a EU-DS-GVO, § 25 para. 1 TDDDG.
You can revoke your consent for the future at any time. For this purpose, simply open our Consent Banner and deselect the relevant cookie(s). Please note that the change in the Consent Banner settings must be made individually for each end device.

LinkedIn Pixel / LinkedIn Insight Tag
On the basis of your consent, we use "LinkedIn Pixel" of LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company (Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland) on our website pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 p. 1 lit. a EU-DS-GVO, § 25 Para. 1 TDDDG.
In the event of consent being granted, personalised advertisements on LinkedIn may be played to visitors to this website. Moreover, there is a possibility to create reports on the performance of the advertisements as well as information on website interaction. For this purpose, the LinkedIn Insight Pixel is integrated on this website, which establishes a connection to the LinkedIn server. If you visit this website and are logged into your LinkedIn account at the same time, the visit data of our website can be assigned to your LinkedIn account.
This procedure is used to evaluate the effectiveness of LinkedIn ads for statistical and market research purposes and can help to optimise future advertising measures. We can operate a so-called Retargeting via the Insight Pixel. This means that we receive information on whether our advertising is effective and meets the interest of users. In this way, we are able to display targeted advertising outside of our own website without personally identifying you as a website visitor. We do not evaluate the surfing behaviour of individual users.
We do not have any influence on the storage and processing of the data by LinkedIn itself. LinkedIn uses the data for its own advertising purposes.
Moreover, the LinkedIn Insight Pixel also collects the following data from the use of our website: IP address, device information, browser information, timestamp, referrer URL. As a result, this provides LinkedIn with the opportunity to assign your data to a specific profile and to insert suitable advertising measures there.
When collecting data, we rely on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 p. 1 lit. a EU-DS-GVO§ 25 Para. 1 TDDDG, for the corresponding data processing.
You can revoke your consent with effect for the future at any time. For this purpose, simply open our Consent Banner and deselect the relevant consent. Please note that the change in the Consent Banner settings must be made individually for each end device.
Privacy settigs
If you withdraw your consent, your data will no longer be used for this purpose and will be deleted, provided that there are no statutory retention periods to the contrary. Without revocation, the storage period of the data is 180 days. Then the data is deleted automatically.
In some cases, LinkedIn also processes data in third countries outside the EU/EEA, such as the USA. Respective contractual regulations and guarantees ensure compliance with the European level of data protection for data transfer and processing in third countries. Data processing or storage in third countries can also take place on the basis of your consent (Art. 49 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR). This will be pointed out to you separately when obtaining your consent, along with the possibility of withdrawing your consent.
To prevent the data from being linked to your LinkedIn account - even if you have given your consent - you must log out of your LinkedIn account before accessing our pages marked with LinkedIn. Please note that this must be carried out separately for each end device. If you have any questions about the processing of your data by LinkedIn, please contact LinkedIn directly.
If you are logged in to LinkedIn, you can also deactivate the data collection at any time using the following link: https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/enhanced-advertising
For more information about privacy at LinkedIn, please visit: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy.

Meta Pixel
This website uses the so-called "Meta Pixel" of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Meta Platforms Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or if you are a resident of the EU, Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (hereinafter also "Facebook").
The data processing is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a EU-DS-GVO, as far as cookies are also used § 25 Para. 1 TDDDG.
You can revoke your consent for the future at any time. For this purpose, simply open our Consent Banner and deselect the corresponding settings. Please note that the change in the Consent Banner settings must be made individually for each end device.
Privacy settigs
Meta Platforms Inc. may transfer personal data to the USA. Respective contractual regulations and guarantees ensure compliance with the European level of data protection for data transfer and processing in third countries. Data processing or storage in third countries can also take place on the basis of your consent (Art. 49 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR). This will be pointed out to you separately when obtaining your consent, along with the possibility of withdrawing your consent.
Using Meta Pixel, it is possible for Facebook to determine the visitors to our online offer as a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called "Facebook Ads"). Accordingly, we use Meta Pixel to display the Facebook Ads placed by us only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offers or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited) that we transmit to Facebook. Using Facebook Pixel, we also want to ensure that our Facebook Ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and do not have a harassing effect. A cookie may be stored on the computer of the user for these purposes. Meta Pixel can be used to track user behaviour across multiple pages after a Facebook Ad has been viewed or clicked on. In this context, we also use so-called Cross-Device Tracking, which enables cross-device processing of visitor data for marketing purposes.
This procedure is used to evaluate the effectiveness of Facebook Ads for statistical and market research purposes and can help to optimise future advertising measures.
Usage Data, Location Data, Meta and Communication Data (e.g. IP addresses and device information) are collected.
If you do not wish to receive interest-based advertising, you also have the option of deactivating Facebook's use of cookies for these purposes in your browser settings. However, this may limit the functions of our website. We therefore also recommend the option to object under https://www.youronlinechoices.euror http://optout.aboutads.info.

§ 8 LinkedIn Sales Navigator

We use the LinkedIn Sales Navigator function of LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company (Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland). This enables us to search for corresponding profiles of LinkedIn users based on certain criteria, such as interests, professional background, place of work specified in the profile, etc., and to contact these users on this basis. The Sales Navigator includes a messaging function that we can use to contact you via the profiles of our employees on LinkedIn. Messages that we exchange with you via this function on LinkedIn are stored by us for the duration of your use of the Sales Navigator. The communication that takes place in this way is not publicly visible to other users on LinkedIn. The legal basis for the data processing described is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest lies in establishing contact and creating a network of people who may be interested in the products and services of Witzenmann GmbH.

If you do not wish to be contacted in this way by Witzemann GmbH, you can object to this type of data processing at any time. Please send this objection to datenschutz@atarax.de or by post to Witzenmann GmbH, Östliche Karl-Friedrich-Straße 134, 75175 Pforzheim.

Information on the LinkedIn Sales Navigator and its functions can be found here: https://business.linkedin.com/de-de/sales-solutions/sales-navigator

LinkedIn's privacy policy with further information on data processing can be found here: https://de.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy"

§ Section 9 Newsletter (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; Section 25 para. 1 TDDDG)

You can subscribe to a free newsletter on our website. The email address you provide when registering for the newsletter and your name will be used to send you the personalised newsletter.

The principle of data minimisation and data avoidance is observed here, as only the email address (or name for personalised newsletters) is marked as a mandatory field. For technical reasons and for legal protection, your IP address is also processed when you order the newsletter.

We use the so-called double opt-in procedure for sending newsletters by e-mail. This means that you will only receive advertising by e-mail if you have previously expressly confirmed that we should activate the newsletter service. We do this by sending you a notification e-mail and asking you to confirm that you wish to receive our newsletter at this e-mail address by clicking on a link contained in this e-mail.

You can of course unsubscribe at any time using the unsubscribe option provided in the newsletter and thus revoke your consent. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly via our website.

We use the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Cloud tool for marketing from the provider Microsoft (Microsoft Ireland Operations Limited, One Microsoft Place, South County Business Park, Leopardstown, Dublin 18, Ireland) to carry out marketing campaigns, for analysis purposes and to address customers and potential customers in a target group-specific manner.

Our newsletters contain cookies or tracking pixels for this purpose and enable us to analyse whether the emails have been opened. The legal basis for this is your consent to the sending of the newsletter (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR, § 25 para.1 TDDDG). In addition, the cookie or tracking pixel enables the analysis of click behaviour. The data collected in this way is sent to Microsoft's servers and stored there. We use this data for statistical purposes and for the individual optimisation of our newsletter. Further information on how Microsoft Dynamics 365 works can be found in Microsoft's privacy policy, available at: https://privacy.microsoft.com/de-de/privacystatement.

§ 10 YouTube embeds

We have included videos from the YouTube platform on our website (embeds). Data is always transferred to the server of the corresponding platform. These processing operations are based on your consent, which you can revoke at any time:

Privacy settings

Embedding on YouTube is carried out using the technical process known as framing. Framing involves the mere insertion of an HTML link provided by YouTube into the code of a website to create a playback frame on the third-party website and thus enable the video stored on YouTube servers to be played.

We use the framing codes generated by YouTube in the so-called "extended data protection mode". According to the YouTube platform, the cookie activity and the resulting data collection is only linked to the use of the playback function of the video itself. Against this background, data collection through the mere use of the website with framed content is prevented.

In order to be able to play the YouTube content, we require your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR), which you can give - if you have not already given it as part of your privacy settings - via the button in the respective section of the video. Please note that your IP address will be transmitted to YouTube (YouTube, LLC 901 Cherry Ave. San Bruno, CA 94066 USA) and that the provider will set cookies in your browser. This is a data transfer to an insecure third country, so in this case there is a risk that your data may be processed by US authorities for control and monitoring purposes without you having any legal recourse. However, we take the possible measures required under data protection law in accordance with Art. 44 et seq. GDPR to establish the level of data protection in the third country.

For your convenience, we remember your consent for XX days via a so-called local storage object, which we store in your browser.

§ 11 Download of Flexperte software

Our design software Flexperte is offered for download on our website. To download the software, you must fill in our Flexperte form. Enter your contact data in this form. We will save this data to make the download possible for you. After ordering via the Flexperte form, you will receive an email at the email address you have indicated. This email contains a link that takes you directly to the download of the Flexperte software when you click on it. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 1 Para.1 lit. b) GDPR. We use your details for commercial purposes only if you have explicitly given your consent to the use of your data for marketing purposes during the ordering process (The legal basis for this is Art 6 Para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR). This consent can be revoked at any time.

§ 12 Data processing via our social media pages

On our website you will find links to the social media services of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn and Xing. You can recognize links to the websites of the social media services by the respective company logo. If you follow these links, you will reach the corporate website of Witzenmann GmbH at the respective social media service. When you click on a link to a social media service, a connection to the servers of the social media service is established. This transmits to the social media service server that you have visited our website. In addition, further data is transmitted to the provider of the social media service.
These are for example:

  • Address of the website on which the activated link is located
  • Date and time when the website was accessed or the link was activated
  • Information about the browser and operating system used
  • IP address

If you are already logged into the relevant social media service at the time the link is activated, the provider of the social media service may be able to determine your user name and possibly even your real name from the data transmitted and assign this information for your personal user account to the social media service. You can eliminate this possibility of assignment to your personal user account by logging out from your user account beforehand. The servers of the social media services are located in the USA and in other countries outside the European Union. Therefore, data can also be processed by the provider of the social media service in countries outside the European Union. Please note that companies in these countries are subject to data protection laws that generally do not protect personal data to the same extent as is the case in the member states of the European Union. Please note that we have no influence regarding the scope, type and purpose of data processing by the provider of the social media service. You can find more information about the use of your data by the social media services integrated on our website in the data protection guideline of the respective social media service. Below you will find the most important information on data protection law in relation to our websites.

Name and address of those responsible for the company

Apart from Witzenmann GmbH, those responsible for the corporate presence as defined in the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) as well other data protection regulations, include

  • Meta (Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland)
  • YouTube (Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland)
  • LinkedIn (LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland)
  • Kununu (XING kununu Prescreen GmbH; Schottenring 2-6, 1010 Vienna, Austria)
  • Xing (New Work SE Dammtorstraße 30 20354 Hamburg Germany)
  • Instagram Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd.,, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland)

However, you use these platforms and their functions at your own risk. This applies in particular to the use of the interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating).
We would also like to point out that your data can be processed outside of the European Union.
We ourselves maintain the fan pages in order to communicate with the visitors of these pages and thereby to inform them about our offers.
We also collect data for statistical purposes in order to be able to develop and optimise the content and to make our offer more attractive. The data required for this (e.g. total number of page views, page activities and data provided by visitors, interactions) is processed by the social networks and made available to us. We have no influence with regards to its generation and display. In addition, your personal data will be processed by the social media providers for market research and advertising purposes. Thus, it is possible that usage profiles, for example, are created based on your usage behaviour and the resulting interests. This, among other things, allows advertisements to be placed inside and outside the platforms that match your interests. For this purpose, cookies are usually stored on your computer. Regardless of this, data that is not collected directly on your end devices can also be saved in your usage profiles. The storage and analysis also takes place across devices. This applies in particular, but not exclusively, if you are registered as a member and logged into the respective platforms. In addition, we do not collect or process any personal data. The processing of your personal data by Witzenmann GmbH is based on our legitimate interests in effective information and communication in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f. EU GDPR.If you are asked for your consent to data processing, i.e. if you give your consent by confirming a button or the like (opt-in), the legal basis for processing is Art. 6, para. 1 lit. a), Art. 7 GDPR, § 25 para. 1 TDDDG.

Your rights/possibility to appeal

If you are a member of a social network and do not want the network to collect data about you via our website and link it to your stored member data in the respective network, you have to · log out of the respective network before visiting our fan page, · delete the cookies on the device and · quit and restart your browser. Please note that this process must be carried out separately for each end device. After logging in again, however, you can be recognized again by the network as a specific user. For a detailed description of the respective processing and the possibilities of objection (opt-out), we refer to the information linked below:

Overall, you have the following rights with regard to the processing of your personal data:
  • The right to information (Art. 15 EU-DS-GVO),
  • The right to delete (Art. 17 EU-DS-GVO),
  • The right to rectification (Art. 16 EU-DS-GVO),
  • The right to data transferability (Art. 20 EU-DSGVO),
  • The right to restrict data processing (Art. 18 EU-DS-GVO),
  • The right to object to data processing (Art. 21 EU-DS-GVO).

You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority. However, since Witzenmann GmbH does not have full access to your personal data, you should contact the social media provider directly when making a claim, because they each have access to the personal data of their users and can take appropriate measures and provide information. Should you still need help, we will of course try to support you. Please contact .

§ 13 Revocation or objection to the processing of your data

1. If you have given consent to the processing of your personal data, you can revoke it at any time. A revocation of this type affects the admissibility of the processing of your personal data, after you have indicated it to us.

2. If the processing of your personal data is based on the balancing of interests, you can lodge an objection against the processing. This is particularly the case when the processing is not necessary for fulfillment of a contract with you, which in each case will be shown by us in the particular description of the function. When such an objection is expressed, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we are doing. If a justified objection is made, we examine the situation and will either stop or adjust the data processing or show you the compelling legitimate grounds on which we shall continue the processing.

3. Of course you can object to the processing of your personal data for advertising and data analysis purposes at any time. You can inform us about your objection to advertising using the contact information below: Witzenmann GmbH, Östliche Karl-Friedrich-Straße 134, 75175 Pforzheim, Email: .

§ 14 Links to other providers

Our website also contains - clearly recognisable - links to the websites of other companies. If there are links to websites of other providers, we have no influence on their contents. Therefore, no guarantee or liability can be assumed for this content. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the content of these pages. The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations and recognisable legal violations at the time they were linked. No illegal content was found at the time when the link was created. However, permanent monitoring of the content of the linked pages is not reasonable without specific evidence of an infringement. Upon notification of infringements, such links will be removed immediately.
