Personal Data
We process personal data of our customers, potential customers, business partners and other persons who may be directly or indirectly related to our company. The data to be processed may include the following information:

Surname, first name, title
Contact details (address, telephone number, e-mail address)
Company-related information (company name, position, department)

Purpose of the data processing

We process this data for the purpose of providing our business, marketing and sales consulting and coaching services. The processing is carried out in particular for the purpose of establishing contact, preparing offers, executing contracts, invoicing and customer support.

Contact Form
If you send us inquiries through our contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provide, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent. The data entered in the contact form is therefore processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an email and ask for it. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Newsletter Marketing
If you register for our newsletter, we need your e-mail address in order to be able to send you the newsletter. Your data will be used exclusively for sending the newsletter, will not be passed on to third parties and will be processed on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke your consent at any time by using the unsubscribe link at the end of each newsletter or by sending us a corresponding message. The legality of the data processing operations that have already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation.

Cookies
We use both technically necessary cookies and cookies for analysis and marketing purposes on our website. Technically necessary cookies are required to ensure the basic functions of our website, while analysis and marketing cookies help us to understand user behavior and improve our services. The cookies we use do not contain any personal data and cannot be used to identify you personally. The information collected is used solely to improve our website functionality and to provide you with relevant content and advertising.

You have the option of accepting or rejecting the use of cookies on our website. However, rejecting cookies may restrict certain functions. You can change your cookie settings at any time in your browser settings. We do not pass on cookie data to third parties unless this is required by law or necessary to provide our services. We treat your privacy with the utmost care and take appropriate measures to protect your data from unauthorized access or misuse.

The legal basis for the use of technically necessary cookies is based on our legitimate interest in the technically flawless operation and smooth functionality of our website in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our website cannot function properly without these cookies. The use of statistics and marketing cookies requires your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent to the use of cookies at any time for the future in accordance with Art. 7 para. 3 GDPR. Consent is voluntary. If it is not given, there are no disadvantages. Further information about the cookies we actually use (in particular about their purpose and storage duration) can be found in this privacy policy and in the information about the cookies we use in our cookie banner.

Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA), to analyze usage behavior on our website. Google Analytics uses cookies to collect information about your interactions on our website. The information generated by this about your use of the website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google Analytics is only used with activated IP anonymization. This means that your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. You can prevent the collection and processing of your data by Google Analytics by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout

Further information on Google’s data protection practices can be found in Google’s privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy, https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/ or https://marketingplatform.google.com/about/analytics/terms/de/

Google Tag Manager
Our website uses Google Tag Manager. This service allows website tags to be managed via an interface. Google Tag Manager only implements tags. This means that no cookies are used and no personal data is collected. The Google Tag Manager triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. However, Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If deactivation has been carried out at domain or cookie level, it remains in place for all tracking tags, provided that these are implemented with Google Tag Manager. Here you can find out exactly where Google data centers are located: https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/
