Collection and processing of personal data

Visiting the website of SSI is generally possible without us requiring personal data from you or setting cookies.

However, visiting websites results in servers storing various access data in an electronic log (so-called "log file") by default. This data includes, e.g., the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider, the IP address of your access, the website from which you visit us and the date and duration of the visit. As a rule, this information does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about you personally, for example the data collected during a visit to our website is only recorded anonymously by SSI and, if necessary, evaluated for statistical purposes, which only serve to optimize the web pages. Under no circumstances will data be passed on to third parties.

Our websites may contain links to websites of other providers that are not covered by this privacy policy, e.g., websites with content, information and services of third parties over which SSI has no control. The purpose and scope of the data collection as well as the further processing and use of your data is the responsibility of the respective operators. We ask you to refer to their data protection notices for more details and point out that we exclude any liability and responsibility for the data protection provisions of these third-party websites.

Why SSI collects, stores or processes data

We collect, store and process data from you on an ad hoc basis, which you generate or enter when using our website or when communicating with us, so that we can optimally coordinate our communication with you or our services for you, and in order to process your messages or requests. The basis for this is the contact information you provide to us, which may include your personal contact information such as name, email address, phone number, etc., as well as the corresponding message content.

In the case of merely informational use of the website, for example if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us, we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. If you wish to view our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to display our website to you and to ensure stability and security (legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO):

- IP address
- Date and time of the request
- Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
- Content of the request (specific page)
- Access status/HTTP status code
- Amount of data transferred in each case
- Website from which the request comes
- browser
- Operating system and its interface
- Language and version of the browser software

Use and disclosure of personal data and purpose limitation

All personal data collected by SSI will be collected, processed, and used in accordance with the applicable regulations for the protection of personal data only for the purpose of contract execution, for the protection of our own legitimate business interests, for the processing of your messages or requests as well as for the demand-oriented design of our website.

SSI maintains current technical measures to ensure data security, in particular to protect your personal data against risks during data transmissions and against third parties gaining knowledge. These measures are adapted to the current state of the art.

Declaration of agreement

By using our web pages and the offers contained in them, you agree that the personal data voluntarily submitted by you may be stored by us and processed and used in accordance with this privacy policy.

Cookies from third parties

Cookies from third parties, e.g., Google Analytics, Google Maps, YouTube, etc., may be used on our website with your consent.

Use of Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site.

The information generated by a cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity, and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.

Google Analytics is used in accordance with the conditions agreed upon by the German data protection authorities with Google.

Privacy policy overview
Privacy Policy

Use of YouTube As is the case with many websites, we also embed the "YouTube" software in our information offering on our website. The YouTube software uses cookies for data collection and statistical data analysis. YouTube uses cookies, among other things, to collect reliable video statistics, to prevent fraud and to improve the user experience. YouTube's embedded videos are used within YouTube's permitted use, which all users must accept. If you see copyrights violated, please report it directly to YouTube.

SSI uses embedded YouTube videos in extended privacy mode. This means that YouTube does not store cookies for a user who views a website with an embedded YouTube video player but does not click on the video to start playback. If the YouTube video player is clicked, YouTube may store cookies on the user's computer, but no personal cookie information is stored for playbacks of embedded videos (Source: YouTube "Enabling enhanced privacy mode for embedded videos"). For more details, please refer to YouTube's general privacy policy. We do not collect any personal data as part of the embedding of YouTube videos.

Use of Facebook Our website contains the plug-in of the social network Facebook. This is the button with the Facebook logo.

The social network is operated by the company Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (in the following "Facebook"). All data processing operations in this context are not carried out by us, but by Facebook. It is not known exactly which data processing operations Facebook carries out when and after a user calls up a fan page. Therefore, we can only provide the following information, which is based on the currently achievable state of knowledge:
When you are logged into Facebook, Facebook collects data regarding your actions, interactions and movements within its social network, which the company Facebook Inc. uses to optimize its direct marketing profile personalized for each user, for its own business purposes, and links it to your profile and your registration data provided there and other information provided within the social network by you or by others. For the purpose and scope of data collection by Facebook and for the further processing and use of your data there, as well as your rights in this regard and the settings options you must protect your privacy, we refer you to the data protection information of Facebook, over which we have no influence:

Even if you are not logged in to Facebook, Facebook Inc. stores and uses data on the operating system used, the browser version, the IP address and the place of origin derived from it.

In addition, Facebook can also recognize you as a non-logged-in or non-registered user via cookies and use the statistical data obtained from the page view when you next log in or register with Facebook for the first time to create a profile.

Use of Twitter and LinkedIn "Tailored Target Groups" and "Conversion Tracking" of Twitter and LinkedIn offer the possibility to target existing users and customers who have visited the internet offer of SSI with relevant campaigns. This is done by Twitter and LinkedIn storing anonymized user data with the help of a website tag. For this purpose, a cookie from Twitter or LinkedIn can be placed in the browser when a user visits our website.

SSI adheres to Twitter's conversion tracking and tailored audience policies when using this.

Users who wish to opt-out of interest-based advertising from Twitter may do so, for example, through an appropriate opt-out mechanism set by Twitter. Likewise, you can change your privacy settings on Twitter accordingly.

On LinkedIn, you can reject interest-based advertising. Note that opting out of such advertising does not remove ads from the pages you visit. It just means that the ads shown to you are not necessarily aligned with your personal interests.

How long does the data remain stored?

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. If applicable, we therefore only store your personal data for as long as this is necessary to achieve the purposes stated at the beginning or as stipulated by the storage periods provided by the legislator. After the respective purpose has ceased to exist or these periods have expired, the corresponding data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

About your rights to information, correction, blocking, deletion, and objection, You have the right to obtain information about your personal data stored by SSI at any time. You also have the right to correct, blocking or deletion of your personal data, unless the data storage is required by law or for the fulfillment of contractual relationships.

If you have any questions or concerns about this, please contact our data protection coordinator, who is listed under "Contact details".
You can make changes or revoke consent by notifying us accordingly with effect for the future.
To ensure that the blocking of data can be taken into account at any time, this data must be kept in a blocking file for control purposes.

Contact form

The data you enter in the contact form will be used exclusively for correspondence with you. Your data will not be passed on to third parties.

Changes to our data protection declaration

We reserve the right to occasionally adapt this data protection declaration so that it always complies with the current legal requirements or in order to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g., when introducing new services. For your renewed visit, the data protection declaration specified in each case is valid. Your rights to information, correction, blocking, deletion and objection remain unaffected by such a change.
