ii)                          Lead Forensics

The Lead Forensics software tool from Lead Forensics, Building 3000, Lakeside, North Harbour, Portsmouth, PO6 3EN, UK, is active on our website. This software does not use cookies, but only collects your IP address when you visit our website. This IP address is then transmitted to Lead Forensics and compared with their own data.

Lead Forensics collects, processes and stores information about companies and decision makers. These are limited to first name, surname, e-mail address, social profile (limited to LinkedIN) and business IP address. Other business-related data may also be processed, such as company name, function, sales and business address. Once the data has been reconciled, Lead Forensics anonymizes the IP address.

Our legitimate interest lies in the data processing described above. The data processing is justified according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Google Fonts

We use Google Fonts on our website. This enables the display of fonts. Google Fonts is a service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California, 94043, USA ("Google"). The integration of these web fonts takes place via a server call, usually via a Google server in the USA. This may result in the following being transmitted to the server and stored by Google:

- Name of the browser used
- Browser version
- Website from which the request was initiated
- Operating system of the user
- Screen resolution of the user
- IP address of the user

Language settings of the browser or operating system used by the user

Google ensures that the collection and storage of personal data in connection with the use of Google Fonts is reduced to a minimum. In particular, Google Fonts does not use cookies. Your data collected through the use of Google Fonts will not be merged with other Google data (such as from the use of Google Mail).

The font files themselves are temporarily stored by Google for one year: Because millions of websites refer to the same fonts, they are cached after you visit the first website and appear immediately on all other websites you visit later. According to Google's own statements, this means that website visitors only send very few queries to Google. Google states that you see only one CSS request per font family, per day, per browser. Google uses the data on font usage in anonymous form to create statistical evaluations of the popularity of certain fonts on the Internet. For more information, please see the FAQ and Google's privacy policy, which can be found here:

The use of Google Fonts is intended to make it easier for you to read our website and to make it graphically more pleasant for you and is therefore based on our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield,

Integration of YouTube videos

We have included YouTube videos in our online offering, which are stored at and can be played directly from our website. YouTube is another Google service. YouTube videos are all integrated in the "extended data protection mode", i.e. no data about the users is transferred to YouTube if they do not play the videos.  Only when a user plays the videos will the following data be transmitted. We have no influence on this data transfer.

By visiting the website, YouTube receives the information that the user has accessed the corresponding subpage of our online service when playing a video. In addition, further information about the use of this online service (including the user's IP address) will be transmitted to a YouTube server in the USA and stored there. This occurs regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account that the user is logged on to or whether there is no user account. If the user is logged in to YouTube, his data will be assigned directly to his account. If a user does not wish his profile to be assigned to YouTube, he must log out before activating the button. YouTube stores data as user profiles and uses them for advertising, market research and/or for designing its website according to requirements. Such evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) for the purpose of providing demand-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about the activities of the user on our online service. The user has the right to object to the creation of these user profiles and must contact YouTube to exercise this right.

Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by YouTube is contained in the Privacy Policy, as well as further information on rights and setting options to protect privacy:

YouTube also processes your personal data in the USA and has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield,
