Privacy Policy

Scope

This privacy statement is intended to inform users of this website about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data in accordance with the German Federal Data Protection Act, the Telemedia Act and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) by the website operator

(hereinafter also referred to as “SHS”).

SHS takes your privacy very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially in accordance with the statutory provisions. Please consider that data transmission via the internet can always be subject to security vulnerabilities. Full protection against access by third parties is not feasible. SHS does not process personal data with a lack of legal basis or consent. This may result in your not being able to use the website to its full extent. Consent is requested when visiting the Website.

Access data

SHS collects data about access to the site and stores it in the form of server log files. The following data is recorded in this way:

  • Visited website
  • Time at the moment of access
  • Volume of data sent in bytes
  • Source/reference from which you arrived at the site
  • Browser used
  • Operating system used
  • IP address used

The data collected is used only for statistical purposes and to improve the website. However, the website operator reserves the right to subsequently check the server log files if there are concrete indications of illegal use.

Processing of personal data

SHS collects, uses and discloses your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of such data. Personal data includes any information such as your name, e-mail address and telephone number, which serves to determine who you are and which can be traced back to you.

Processing of contact data

If you contact the website operator using the contact options offered, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and respond to your inquiry. Such data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.

Google Analytics

This website uses the Google Analytics service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) to help analyze how users interact with the website. The service uses so-called cookies, which are text files that are stored on your device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. IP anonymization is used on this website. The IP addresses of users within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area are truncated. This truncation serves to remove the possibility of tracing your IP address back to you. Within the framework of the data processing agreement, which the website operator has concluded with Google Inc., it will use the information it collects to evaluate website usage and activity and provide services related to internet usage. You can prevent cookies from being stored on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. It is not guaranteed that you will be able to access all the features of this website without restrictions if your browser does not allow Cookies. You can also use a browser plugin to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being passed on to Google Inc. and used by Google Inc.  Use the following link to download this plugin: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. For further information pertaining to the use of data by Google Inc., visit https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de

Use of Piwik

This website uses the open source software Piwik for the statistical evaluation of visitor access. Piwik uses so-called cookies, which are text files placed on your computer to help analyze how users interact with the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is stored on a server. The IP address is anonymized immediately after processing and before it is stored. You have the option of preventing the installation of cookies by changing the settings of your browser software. Please consider that some functions of this website may no longer be available if such settings are made.
You can decide whether a unique web analysis cookie may be stored in your browser to enable the website operator to collect and analyze various statistical data.

Use of script libraries (Google Fonts)

In order to present our content correctly and in a graphically appealing way across all browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Fonts (https://fonts.google.com/) on this website. Google Fonts are transferred to your browser’s cache to avoid multiple loading. If your browser does not support Google Fonts or does not allow access, content will be displayed in a default font. Displaying script or font libraries automatically initiates a connection to the library operator. It is theoretically possible – but currently also unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes – for the operators of such libraries to collect data. The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Use of Google Maps

This website uses the Google Maps API to visually display geographical information. When Google Maps is used, Google also collects, processes and uses data on how site visitors use of the map features. For more information about data processing by Google, please refer to Google’s privacy policy. You can also change your own privacy settings in the privacy center. For detailed instructions on how to manage your own data in combination with Google products, please visit https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

Newsletter subscription

SHS offers you a newsletter to inform you of current events and offers. If you would like to subscribe to the newsletter, you must provide a valid email address.

The use of social media plugins

This website uses LinkedIn Social Plugins, which is operated by the LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company (1000 W. Maude Avenue, Sunnyvale, CA 94085, USA). You can recognize the plugins by the Linkedin logo or by the term “Follow” in the LinkedIn colors (blue and white). The plugin establishes a direct connection between your browser and the LinkedIn servers. The website operator has no influence on the nature and extent of the data, which the plugin transmits to the LinkedIn servers. The plugin informs LinkedIn that you have visited this website as a user. In this case, your IP address may be stored. If you are logged into your LinkedIn account while visiting this site, the information will be linked to that account. If you use the features of the plugin, for example by sharing a post, the corresponding information will also be sent to LinkedIn.

Users’ rights to information, correction and deletion

As a user, you will receive free information about which personal data about you has been stored at your request. Unless your request conflicts with a legal obligation to store data (e.g. data retention), you have a right to correct any incorrect data and to block or delete your personal data.
