We use our LinkedIn page to inform and communicate with you as a user and interested party of our offer or as a potential employee/applicant. In accordance with LinkedIn’s terms of use, which each user has agreed to as part of creating a LinkedIn profile, we may identify subscribers to the page and view their profiles and other shared information from them. For example, your LinkedIn name and their profile picture are visible to us (and other LinkedIn users) when you visit our site or comment on posts by us. We therefore only collect the personal data that has become an obvious part of our LinkedIn page through corresponding cooperation on your part. We have no interest in collecting and further processing your individual personal data for marketing purposes. Accordingly, we use the data at most to adapt and improve our offer.

LinkedIn uses cookies, i.e. small text files that are stored on the various end devices of the users, to store and further process this information.

You can subscribe to various newsletters on some of our websites or as part of promotions such as competitions, with which we inform you about the activities of our company, current information about our services, special offers, promotions and events.

What data is stored on Vimeo?

When you call up a website on our website that has a Vimeo video embedded, your browser connects to the Vimeo servers. This results in a data transmission. This data is collected, stored and processed on the Vimeo servers. Regardless of whether you have a Vimeo account or not, Vimeo collects data about you. This includes your IP address, technical information about your browser type, operating system or very basic device information. Furthermore, Vimeo stores information about which website you use the Vimeo service and which actions (web activities) you perform on our website. These web activities include, for example, session duration, bounce rate or which button you clicked on our website with a built-in Vimeo function. Vimeo can track and store these actions using cookies and similar technologies.

If you are logged in to Vimeo as a registered member, more data may be collected as more cookies may have already been set in your browser. In addition, your actions on our website will be directly linked to your Vimeo account. To prevent this, you must log out of Vimeo while on our website.

Below we show you cookies that are set by Vimeo when you are on a website with an integrated Vimeo function. We assume that you do not have a Vimeo account.

The following list shows a sample of possible cookies that are set when you interact with the Vimeo video:

Vimeo uses this data to improve its own service. The legal basis for this is Article 6 s. 1 f GDPR. If your data is used, for example, to set up our own targeted advertising measures, this is done on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 s. 1 a GDPR.

How long and where is the data stored?

Vimeo has its headquarters in White Plains in the state of New York (USA). However, the services are offered worldwide. The company uses computer systems, databases and servers in the USA and also in other countries. Your data can therefore also be stored and processed on servers in America. The data remains stored by Vimeo until the company no longer has an economic reason for storing it. Then the data is deleted or anonymised.
In order to ensure an appropriate level of data protection when transferring data to the USA, we have concluded EU standard contractual clauses with the provider of Vimeo in the so-called “controller to controller” variant. As further protective measures, we always integrate videos from Vimeo in the “Do Not Track” variant, so that personal data is only transmitted to Vimeo in a minimal way.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

You always have the option to manage cookies in your browser according to your wishes. For example, if you do not want Vimeo to set cookies and thus collect information about you, you can delete or disable cookies in your browser settings at any time. Please note that after deactivating/deleting cookies, various functions may no longer be available to the full extent.
If you are a registered Vimeo member, you can also manage the cookies used in the settings on Vimeo.

YouTube (extended privacy mode)

We use services from YouTube, LLC 901 Cherry Ave, 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, a Google Inc. company, Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, on our website. Here, we use the option of extended data protection provided by YouTube to protect your personal data. When you call up a page in which a YouTube video is embedded, a connection is established to the YouTube servers and the content is displayed on the website by informing your browser. According to YouTube’s information, however, data is only transmitted to the YouTube server in “extended data protection mode” when you actively start the video. If you are logged in to YouTube at this time, the information about the videos you have viewed will be assigned to your member account with YouTube. You can prevent this by logging out of your member account before visiting our website. Insofar as data is processed outside the European Economic Area / the EU, where there is no level of data protection equivalent to the European standard, Google states that it uses standard contractual clauses.

Further information on YouTube’s data protection is provided by Google under the following link:
