Our website may use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files and do not cause any damage to your device. They are stored on your device either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (persistent cookies). Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them yourself or your web browser automatically deletes them.
In some cases, cookies from third-party companies may also be stored on your device when you enter our site (third-party cookies). These enable us or you to use certain third-party services (e.g. cookies to process payment services).
Cookies have different functions. Numerous cookies are technically necessary because certain website functions would not work without them (e.g. the shopping cart function or the display of videos). Other cookies are used to evaluate user behavior or to display advertising.
Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process (necessary cookies) or to provide certain functions you want (functional cookies, e.g. for the shopping cart function) or to optimize the website (e.g. cookies to measure the web audience). are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR, unless another legal basis is stated. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies in order to provide its services in a technically error-free and optimized manner. If consent to the storage of cookies has been requested, the cookies in question will be stored exclusively on the basis of this consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR); consent can be revoked at any time.

5. Plugins and tools
What is Vimeo?
On our website we use videos from Vimeo, a video portal operated by Vimeo LLC based at 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA. A plug-in enables us to show you interesting video material directly on our website. Certain data can be transferred from you to Vimeo. In this data protection declaration, we explain what data is involved, why we use Vimeo and how you can control the management or prevention of data transmission.
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 thereby collect information about you, you can delete or disable cookies in your browser settings. Depending on the browser, the procedure differs somewhat. Please note that after deactivating or deleting cookies, certain functions may no longer be fully available. In the “Cookies” section you will find links to instructions for the most common browsers. If you are a registered member of Vimeo, you can also manage the cookies used in the Vimeo settings.
Where and for how long is the data stored?
Vimeo is headquartered in White Plains, New York (USA), but offers its services worldwide. The company uses computer systems, databases and servers in the United States as well as in other countries. Therefore, your data may be stored and processed on servers in the US and other countries. The data is stored by Vimeo until the company no longer has any economic reason for storing it. The data is then deleted or made anonymous.
Vimeo also processes your data in the USA. We would like to point out that, according to the European Court of Justice, there is currently no adequate level of protection for the transfer of data to the USA. This can pose various risks to the lawfulness and security of data processing.
Vimeo uses so-called standard contractual clauses in accordance with Article 46 paragraphs 2 and 3 of the GDPR as the basis for data processing for recipients in third countries (outside the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, especially in the USA) or for the transfer of data to such countries. Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) are model clauses provided by the European Commission that are intended to ensure that your data complies with European data protection standards even if it is transferred to and stored in third countries (such as the USA). Through these clauses, Vimeo commits to comply with the European Union level of data protection when processing your relevant data, even if the data is stored, processed and managed in the USA. These clauses are based on an implementing decision of the European Commission. The resolution and the corresponding standard contractual clauses can be found at the following link: https://eur-lex.europa.eu/eli/dec_impl/2021/914/oj?locale=en
