We process so-called access data (in particular your IP address) for statistical evaluations for the purpose of the operation, security and technical optimisations on our website. This enables us to present our content more effectively, and to detect potential errors. We collect access data when you call up our website and save it in a log file (so-called log file):

date and time of the retrieval,
the amount of data transmitted / message about the successful retrieval,
browser type and version,

requesting provider / your IP address.
We cannot identify you based on that information. Log data is regularly deleted (after 90 days at the latest). The legal basis for this data processing can be found in our legitimate interest, within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.
4 Statistical analysis - Tracking
We use tracking technologies on our website to measure, evaluate and optimise our content. We can also identify security risks in order to protect our users and partners from fraud. The legal basis for this data processing is the consent you have given us (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR). For this purpose, we use the following products, which are made available to us via external service providers:
4.1 Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service by Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4 Ireland ("Google"). The protection of your data is important to us, therefore we have configured Google Analytics to use the configuration parameter "anonymizeIp" to shorten your IP address and process your personal usage data anonymously. All other data will only be processed pseudonymised. It is not possible for us to draw any conclusions about your identity.
The IP address transmitted by the user's browser is not merged with other data from Google. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting their browser software accordingly; or prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the online offer to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link:http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
Your data will furthermore be processed pseudonymously, as explained below. It is not possible for us to draw conclusions about your person. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our online offer, to compile reports on the activities within this offer and to provide us with further services associated with this online offer and internet use. The processed data can be used to create pseudonymous user profiles of the users.
The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is usually transferred and stored to a Google server in the USA. Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers guarantees complying with the European data protection laws (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active). The storage of cookies is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time using the following link:Privacy settings
4.2 Google Maps
We use Google Maps to show our location and to provide directions services, a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter only referred to as "Google".
Through its certification under the Privacy Shield Agreement https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active, Google guarantees that the data protection requirements of the EU are also observed when processing data in the USA.
In order to enable the display of certain fonts on our website, a connection to the Google server in the USA is established when our website is accessed. If you call up the Google Maps component integrated into our website, Google will store a cookie on your device via your internet browser.
In order to display our location and to create a route description, your settings and data are processed and might be transmitted to Google servers in the USA. Through this connection, Google can determine from which website and IP address your request and directions have been to. The storage of cookies is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

5 Social media
We are present on social medias in order to communicate with our users and to provide information about our services.
For a detailed information on the respective forms of processing and the possibilities of objection, we refer to the data protection declarations and information of the operators of the respective networks.
5.1 Facebook (fan page)
We operate a so-called "fan page" on Facebook (provided by from Facebook Ireland Ltd ("Facebook"), 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland) to provide information on topics relating to everyday work, employees and career opportunities at PROMOS. We have agreed to the conditions for the commercial use of Facebook. When you visit our site, no Facebook data is initially requested for the display of Facebook teasers and no cookies are set.
When and in what form Facebook corrects, ports, saves or deletes your personal data is known only to Facebook. We have no influence on this. Since Facebook, as the provider of the fan page and the Facebook Insights Tool, carries out the surveys and evaluations of personal data required for our statistics, it also has the possibility to establish a personal reference using this data or transfer it to the USA. However, Facebook has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield.

We also use the video portal of YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, hereinafter only referred to as "YouTube".

We use YouTube in conjunction with the Advanced Privacy Mode feature to show you videos. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.
According to YouTube, the function "Extended Privacy Mode" has the effect that the data described in more detail below is only transmitted to the YouTube server when you actually start a video.
Without this "Extended Privacy Mode", a connection to the YouTube server in the USA is established when you visit one of our internet pages on which a YouTube video is embedded. This connection is required in order to display the said video via your internet browser. YouTube will at least record and process your IP address, the date and time, and the website you visited in this process.
For the purpose of functionality as well as for the analysis of usage behaviour, YouTube permanently stores cookies via your internet browser on your device. If you do not agree with this processing, you have the possibility to prevent its storage within your browser settings.
