GTP Schäfer uses so-called “cookies“. Cookies are small text files which store website settings when the website is used, e.g. in the web browser of the user. The cookies are intended to render the use of the website easier. GTP Schäfer only uses so-called session ID cookies and, for the purposes of the white paper download, a “no-survey-main” cookie.
The session ID cookies are only stored in the user’s web browser for the duration of the relevant session and are deleted automatically when the browser is closed. The “no-survey-main” cookie is deleted after 14 days. Every user is free to set his/her browser to prevent the installation of cookies. However, in this case, the user might be prevented from using all features and functions of the website without restrictions.
b) Google Analytics
Google, acting on instruction and on behalf of GTP Schäfer, uses this information to analyse how you use the website, compile reports on the website activities and render further services to GTP Schäfer relating to the use of the website and the use of the Internet. The IP address which is transferred by the user’s browser in the context of Google Analytics is not combined or pooled with other data of Google. The user can set his/her browser software to prevent the storage of cookies.
The user can also prevent the collection and transfer to Google of the data generated by the cookie about the use of the website (including the user’s IP address) as well as 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.

c) Google Font
On our website, we use Google Fonts which is a service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). Google Fonts is used without authentication and no cookies are sent to the Google Fonts API. If the user has a Google account, none of his/her Google account data will be transmitted to Google while Google Fonts is being used. Google only records the use of CSS and the fonts used and securely stores this data. We use Google Web Fonts to ensure uniform and attractive presentation of our online services. This is a legitimate interest in terms of Art. 6 subs. 1 f) GDPR. For such purpose, the browser used by the user must connect to the Google servers. That is how Google is informed that our website was accessed from the user’s IP address.
If your browser does not support Web Fonts, your computer will use a standard font.
Information about which data is collected by Google and for which purposes the data is used is made available to the user at: https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/
On our website, we use fonts which are provided by MyFonts Inc., 600 Unicorn Park Drive, Woburn, MA 01801, USA. When a user accesses the website, also data from a MyFonts server may be retrieved which at least enables MyFonts to become aware of the user’s IP address. Thereby, MyFonts is informed, among other things, that the user has retrieved the font via our website and also obtains cognizance of some technical information relating to the browser because almost every web browser automatically transmits this data to the server in any case of retrieval. MyFonts requires the transmitted information, especially the IP address, to make the retrieved contents available. Further information on data protection in the context of MyFonts is available under the following link:
Videos from the video portal platform “Vimeo” are embedded in our website. The provider is Vimeo, LLC, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA. Every time the user clicks a video, a direct connection is established between the user’s browser and a server of Vimeo in the USA. On this occasion, information about the user’s visit to the website and the user’s IP address is stored there.
If the user has a Vimeo user account and does not want Vimeo to collect data relating to him/her via our website and combine such data with his/her membership data stored by Vimeo, the user must log out of Vimeo before he/she clicks the video on our website.
Further information on data processing and data protection by Vimeo is available at: https://vimeo.com/privacy.
