    (4) Third-party-cookies

    Haewa’s websites use third-party services which may set their own cookies, including YouTube, GoogleMaps and the service AddThis, for recommending pages in social networks. These functions are separately marked and are deactivated when loading pages.

    By using this site you signify your assent to the terms of data protection of the respective provider. häwa GmbH shall not be liable for contents or the processing of your data carried out through a third party. The sole responsibility lies with the third party. Haewa GmbH cannot be held responsible for any damage incurred.

    (5) Tracking with Google Analytics

    This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
    Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
    Google Analytics cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) EC-GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising.
    We have activated the function IP anonymization on this website. As a result, your IP address will be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. The full IP address will be sent only in exceptional cases to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website. The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
    You can prevent these cookies being stored by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. However, we wish to point out that doing so may mean you will not be able to enjoy the full functionality of this website. In addition, you may prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by cookies and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB.
    You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent your data from being collected on future visits to this site.
    For more information about how Google Analytics handles user data, see Google’s privacy policy: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.
    We have entered into an agreement with Google for the outsourcing of our data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

    This website uses the “demographic features” function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be created that contain information on the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-related advertising by Google and from visitor data of Third-party vendors. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can use these features at any time using the ad settings in your Google Account, or by turning off capture of your data by Google Analytics as described under “Objection to data collection generally forbidden.

    (6) Google Tag Manager

    Google Tag Manager does not analyze any data itself and does not collect any personal data. It is an addition to Google Analytics, which can share information about user interactions with Google Analytics and, at the same time reduces the need for administrative maintenance on the pages.

    § § 6 Linking to social media platforms

    (1) On our website we link to our social media profiles on "Facebook“,"Xing" and “LinkedIn“. We use the so-called two-click solution. This means that when you visit our site, initially no personal data will be passed on to the providers of the plug-ins. If you follow the respective link, data will be transmitted to the operator of the respective platform. You can identify the provider of the plug-in via the marking on the box above its initial letter or logo. We offer you the opportunity to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. By clicking on the marked field you activate the function and the plug-in provider receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online service. Furthermore, the data mentioned under § 3 of this declaration will be transmitted. As for Facebook and Xing, according to the respective providers in Germany, the IP address is anonymized immediately after collection. By activating the plug-ins, you will transmit your personal data to the respective plug-in provider who will store them (US providers store the data in the USA). Since the plug-in provider performs the data collection, in particular via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies before clicking on the greyed-out box via the security settings of your browser.

    (2) We have no influence on the collected data and data processing operations and we neither know the full extent of data collection, nor the purpose of the processing, nor the storage periods. We also have no information about the deletion of the data collected by the plug-in provider.


    (3) The plug-in provider will store your personal data as user profiles and will use them for advertising, market research and/or customized design of his website. This evaluation (also for users that are not logged in) mainly serves to provide customized advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles. In order to exercise this right, you must contact the respective plug-in provider. We offer you via the plug-ins the opportunity to interact with the social networks or other users to improve our offer and to make it more interesting for you as user. The use of the plug-ins is based on art.  6 para. 1 sentence. 1 lit. f GDPR.

    (4) The data are transmitted irrespective of whether the third-party provider provides a user account to which you are logged in, or whether there is no user account. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, the data will be directly allocated to your account. If you click on the activated button and for example, link the page, the plug-in provider stores also this information in your user account and shares it publicly with his contacts. If you do not wish this to be allocated to your profile with the plug-in provider, you need to log out before activating the button.


    (5) For further information on the purpose and extent of the data collection and the processing of data by the plug-in provider please refer to the privacy statements of these providers linked below.
