    Plugins and Tools

    Vimeo without tracking (Do-Not-Track)

    This website uses plugins from the video portal Vimeo.

    The provider is Vimeo Inc.,
    555 West 18th Street, New
    York, New York 10011, USA.

    When you visit one of our pages equipped with Vimeo videos, a connection to the Vimeo servers is established. The Vimeo server is then informed which of our pages you have visited. Vimeo also obtains your IP address. However, we have set Vimeo in such a way that Vimeo does not track your user activities and will not set any cookies.

    The use of Vimeo is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers.

    This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Insofar as a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO; the consent can be revoked at any time.

    Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission as well as, according to Vimeo's statement on "legitimate business interests". Details can be found here:
