Cookies

We use cookies on our website, both for the proper functioning of our website and for analytical purposes. In the following, we explain which cookies are used and for what purpose they are used. If you need more detailed information about cookies, please read our cookie statement.

Google Analytics

APH Group uses Google Analytics to gain insight into how visitors use the website. We use this data to optimise our website. With the help of Google Analytics cookies, pseudo-anonymous personal data of visitors is stored in Google Analytics. Pseudo-anonymous data cannot be traced back to a specific person. This data includes:

  • Location
  • Operating system
  • Browser
  • Type of device (tablet, mobile or desktop)
  • Pages viewed
  • How the visitor has entered the website
  • The duration of the visit on the website
  • IP adress

However, an IP address, for example, is not visible and cannot be traced back to a specific person. In Google's privacy statement you can find information about the security of your personal data. APH Group has a data processing contract with Google Analytics to ensure the same level of security and confidentiality of your data.

Microsoft Clarity

We use Microsoft Clarity to gain insight into how the website is used and to optimise it for usage. Clarity is used to store pseudo-anonymous personal data of visitors in Microsoft Clarity. Pseudo-anonymous data is the record of visits. Clarity records interactions such as mouse movements, clicks, scrolls, etc. that a user performs on our website. The data is stored for a maximum of one year. Information about the security of your personal data can be found in Microsoft's privacy policy.

Google reCAPTCHA

On this website, we also use the reCAPTCHA function of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google"). This function is primarily used to distinguish whether an entry is made by a natural person or is abused by machine and automated processing. The service includes the sending of the IP address and, if applicable, further data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google and is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR based on our legitimate interest in determining individual personal responsibility on the Internet and the prevention of abuse and spam. The use of Google reCAPTCHA may also involve the transmission of personal data to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.

Further information on Google reCAPTCHA and Google's privacy policy can be found at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

Note on data transfer to the USA

Our website includes links to companies based in the USA. If you make use of these links and click on them, personal data may be passed on to the US servers of the respective companies. We would like to point out that the USA is not a safe third country in the sense of EU data protection law. US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as a data subject being able to take legal action against this. It can, therefore, not be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. intelligence agencies) process, evaluate and permanently store your data located on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.

Twitter ('X')

Functions of the Twitter service are integrated on our pages. These functions are offered by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. By using Twitter and the "Re-Tweet" function, the websites you visit are linked to your Twitter account and made known to other users. Data is also transferred to Twitter in the process. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the pages, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Twitter. You can find more information on this in Twitter's privacy policy at: https://twitter.com/en/privacy.

Facebook

This website uses the following social media plugin:

"Facebook I-Like" or "Facebook Like", operated by: Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, United States.

This social media plugin is software developed and provided by the aforementioned social media service, which enables the automated exchange of data between the website and the social media service. Among other things, data can be dynamically transferred from the aforementioned social media service to the website.

At the same time, data of the users of this website can also be transferred to the social media service, including the IP address. You can recognise the use of such social media plugins by the specially marked buttons. Personal data may already be exchanged with the respective social media service when the website is displayed or loaded. In these cases, users have the option of rejecting this data exchange by changing the settings of their user account on the website of the aforementioned social media service.

You can recognise the use of the Facebook plugin on the website by the Facebook symbol (white "f" on blue tile or "thumbs up symbol") on a corresponding button. By clicking on this button, you consent to the use of this plugin and thus also to the transfer of personal data to the aforementioned social media service. We have no influence on the type and scope of the data transferred in this process or on its further processing. According to our current knowledge, the aforementioned social media service is informed about your IP address and the website using the plugin. If you are logged in to the aforementioned social media service platform at the same time, the information can be directly assigned to your user profile. If you wish to avoid such a collection of profile information, you should log out of the aforementioned social media service platform.

You can obtain further information from Facebook on how to use the corresponding plugin and the corresponding social media service at: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. Further information from Facebook on the so-called data usage guidelines can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy.

The processing of your data when you contact or interact with our site or its content is carried out by us on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) AVG. Our legitimate interest is to comply with your request.

YouTube

Our website uses plugins from the YouTube site operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited.

If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

For this purpose, the data collected on our website via the TikTok Pixel is transmitted to TikTok. Some of this data is information stored in the device you are using. In addition, the TikTok Pixel also uses cookies to store information on the device you are using.

Data from children under 16 years

Our website and/or service do not intend to collect personal data about visitors who are younger than 16 years old, unless they have the permission of parents or guardians. We cannot check if a visitor is older than 16. We, therefore, advise parents to be involved in the online activities of their children, to prevent the collection of personal data about children without parental consent. If you are convinced that we have collected personal data about a minor without permission, please contact us via the contact details at the bottom of this privacy statement.
