The parent company of Google Ireland, Google LLC, is based in California, USA. A transfer of data to the USA and access by US authorities to the data stored by Google cannot be ruled out. The USA is currently considered a third country from a data protection perspective. You do not have the same rights there as within the EU/EEA. You may not be entitled to any legal remedies against access by authorities.
Duration of storage
The data sent by us and linked to cookies are automatically deleted after 14 months. The deletion of data whose retention period has been reached occurs automatically once a month.
The legal basis for this data processing is your consent pursuant to Art.6 para.1 p.1 lit. a GDPR.
You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by accessing the cookie settings (privacy button at the bottom left of the page) and changing your selection there. The lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation remains unaffected.
In addition, you can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website to Google and the processing of this data by Google, by
a) downloading and installing the browser add-on to disable Google Analytics 4. This will install an opt-out cookie on your device. This prevents the collection by Google Analytics 4 for this website and for this browser in the future, as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.
b) disabling Google Analytics 4 by via the following link: Disable Google Analytics 4. This will set an opt-out cookie on your device. This prevents the collection by Google Analytics 4 for this website and for this browser in the future, as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.
5.5 YouTube Videos
We embed YouTube videos on some of our websites. The provider of the corresponsing plug-ins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a site with the YouTube plug-in, a connection to the servers at YouTube is established. YouTube is thereby notified of which sites you visit. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can associate your surfing history to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google ad program, then you need not be concerned about this type of cookie when viewing YouTube videos. However, YouTube also collects non-personal user information in other cookies. If you wish to prevent this, you must block cookies from being saved to your browser.
You can find additional information on data privacy at "Youtube“ in the provider's data protection notice at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en

We use script libraries and font libraries on this website, such as, for example, Google Webfonts, in order to display our content correctly and in a graphically appealing manner on all browsers (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google Webfonts are used to avoid repeat downloads to your browser's cache. If the browser does not support Google Webfonts or blocks access, the content will be displayed in standard font.
Accessing script libraries or font libraries automatically establishes a connection to the provider of the library. It is theoretically possible - though it is currently unclear whether and for what purpose - providers collect data on these libraries.
You can find the data privacy guielines for the library provider Google here: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en
5.7 Google Maps
This website uses Google Maps API in order to visually display geographic information. When using Google Maps, Google collects, processes and utilises data on use of the map function by users. You can obtain further information on data processing by Google in Google's data protection notice. There you can also make changes to your personal data privacy settings in the data protection centre.
5.8 Google Ads
Our website uses Google conversion tracking. If you link to our website via an ad delivered by Google, Google Adwords places a cookie on your computer. The cookie for conversion tracking is placed on your computer when a user clicks on an ad delivered by Google. These cookies expire at the end of 30 days and do not serve to identify you personally. If the user visits certain pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can detect that the user clicked on the ad and was routed to this site. Each Google Adwords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies therefore cannot be tracked via websites of Adwords customers. The information obtained with the aid of conversion cookies serves to compile conversion statistics for Adwords customers that have opted into conversion tracking. These customers learn the total number of users that clicked on their ad and that were routed to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not obtain any information that can be used to identify users personally. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can decline to allow the cookie from being placed on your computer -- using, for example, browser settings that deactivate the automatic placement of cookies or set your browser so that it blocks cookies from the domain "googleleadservices.com“. Please note that you should not delete opt-out cookies if you do not wish to have measurement data recorded. If you have deleted all the cookies in your browser, you will need to set the opt-out cookie again.
5.9 Payment provider
If you decide during your order process to pay using the online payment service provider PayPal, your contact data will be transferred to PayPal within the context of the order that has been initiated. PayPal is offered by PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. & Cie. S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg. Paypal assumes the function of an online payment service provider and a trustee and provides buyer protection services.

This transfer is required to process your order with the payment method selected by you, in particular to confirm your identity, to manage your payment and for customer relations.
However, please note: Personal data may also be provided by PayPal to service providers, to subcontractors or other associated companies, insofar as this is required to fulfil the contractual obligations under your order or insofar as the personal data is supposed to be processed by order.
Depending on the payment method selected via PayPal, e.g. invoice or direct debit, the personal data transferred to PayPal will be transferred by PayPal to credit rating agencies. This transfer is used to check identity and credit in relation to the order made by you. By viewing Paypal's data privacy statement at https://www.paypal.com/en/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full you can find out which credit rating agencies these are and what data by Paypal are generally used, collected, stored, and shared.

Cloudflare provides a globally distributed content delivery network with DNS. The technical transfer of information between your browser and our website is routed via the Cloudflare network. Cloudflare is thus able to analyse the data traffic between users and our websites; for example, to speed up the loading time of our pages or to detect and ward off attacks on our services.
In addition, Cloudflare may store cookies on your computer for optimisation and analysis. This safeguards our legitimate interests in the security, performance and reliability of our advertising offer in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. We have concluded a corresponding contract processing agreement with Cloudflare on the basis of the GDPR. The data is generally processed in Germany or other states in the European Union. Insofar as processing is carried out in third countries in certain cases, processing is only carried out if the adequacy of the level of data protection in the third country has been asserted by the EU Commission in accordance with Article 45 GDPR, on the basis of the EU standard contractual clauses or if an adequate level of data protection is ensured by the data recipient in another way. Cloudflare collects statistical data about your visit to this website. Access data includes:
- IP address
- Date and time of the request
- Content of the request (specific page)
- Access status/HTTP status code
- Amount of data transferred in each case

5.11 Gruppe Nymphenburg Consult AG for the purposes of quality control and service provided by iSC GmbH
iSC wants to constantly improve the quality of its services and is therefore also reliant on checking the quality of its services in the context of its order processing. To this end, iSC GmbH exclusively commissioned Gruppe Nymphenburg Consult AG, Arnulfstraße 58, 80335 München to carry out product and service-related surveys among its customers. If you have given your consent in this respect as part of data collection, you may be contacted for this purpose exclusively by this service provider. Grupper Nymphenburg Consult AG is contractually obliged not to provide to third parties the customer data collected by iSC GmbH and transferred exclusively for this purpose and to maintain data privacy.
5.12 Genesys Cloud
You can use our online chat service free of charge and in real-time through our website. Cookies are set for such purpose by the chat service operator, LivePerson Netherlands B.V., which allow the usage of the website to be analysed. In the framework of the legal regulations, LivePerson Netherlands B.V. creates usage profiles under a pseudonym. It is not possible to draw any conclusion as to your identity in this case. The profile data is not linked to any additional information concerning your person. Telekom uses the services of the company, LivePerson Netherlands B.V., in order to collect statistical data concerning the use of this application and to optimise our offering accordingly.
For quality assurance purposes, the chat record is stored with the date and time, your e-mail address (if you have provided one or were logged in as a customer), your telephone number (if you have provided one or were logged in as a customer) and your name only if you have consented to such storage. You may also revoke your consent during the chat.
If you make an order via our order chat, the data requested in the chat record (name, address, e-mail address and bank details) will be stored in our customer database. The chat record will be stored as documentation for the customer contact. Content of the service and order chat will be stored for up to 30 days and will then be irrevocably erased.
5.13 Friendly Captcha
iSC uses the "Friendly Captcha" service to prevent fraudulent activity and to protect you as an end user from becoming a potential victim of cybercrime.
The solution of the crypto puzzle is used to track whether the website / webshop is being used fraudulently or through automated machine processing, e.g. using bots, and to confirm the visitors are real people. The service is used in forms (contact forms, prize draw forms, registration and login forms, etc.) and in the order process.
To provide the service, Friendly Captcha stores the following data:
- the User Agent, Origin and Referer request headers.
- The puzzle itself, which contains information about the Friendly Captcha account and the identifier of the website to which the puzzle relates.
- The version of the Friendly Captcha service being used.
- Timestamp (Date / Time) that the puzzle was requested and solved.
Friendly Captcha stores an anonymised counter for each IP address to enable dynamic scaling of the puzzle complexity in the edge network, in order to detect malicious/automated use and minimise the banning of real people. The IP addresses are anonymised by one-way hashing, and thus are not personally identifiable. The use of Friendly Captcha does not involve the storage of personal data such as your name, email address, online profile, etc.
No cookies are set when using Friendly Captcha.
Provider of the service:
Friendly Captcha GmbH, Wörthsee, Deutschland
In accordance with article 6, section 1(f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), iSC GmbH and its subsidiaries have a legitimate interest in the use of Friendly Captcha, as the service helps to prevent potentially fraudulent activity on our website / webshop which could put iSC infrastructure at risk.
5.14 Matomo (self-hosted)
Description of Service
This is an open source web analytics service. Matomo is providing the technology. However, Matomo is not processing any data as the data is not being transferred to Matomo due to the self-hosting solution. Self-hosting means that iSC GmbH hosts the web analytics service Matomo on its own servers and thus has sole sovereignty over the analytics data.
This list represents the purposes of the data collection and processing.
- Event tracking
We use Matomo without any tracking cookies - instead we rely on cookieless tracking. Cookieless tracking is an alternative form of tracking that uses methods such as counting unique IP addresses or browser fingerprinting to identify users instead of cookies.
This list represents all (personal) data that is collected by or through the use of this service.
- Time of users previous visit
- Screen resolution
- Files clicked or downloaded
- Links to outside domain clicked
- Page speed
- Page URL
- Number of users visits
- Anonymized user IP
- User agent
- Browser informationen
- Time zone
- Time of users first visit
- Date and time of visit
- Page title
- Referrer URL
- Usage data
- Device information
- Geographic location
- Anonymized order ID
We use IP anonymization for the analysis with Matomo. In this case, your IP address is shortened before analysis so that it can no longer be clearly assigned to you. The same applies to the order ID, which is also anonymized when the shopping functionality is available on the website.
In the following the required legal basis for the processing of data is listed.
- Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR
- §25 para. 2 no. 2 TTDSG
Location of Processing
This is the primary location where the collected data is being processed. If the data is also processed in other countries, you are informed separately.
- European Union
If you do not agree to the storage and use of your data, you can deactivate the data processing here. In this case, an opt-out cookie will be stored in your browser, which prevents Matomo from storing usage data. If you delete your cookies, this will have the effect that the Matomo opt-out cookie will also be deleted. The opt-out must then be reactivated when you visit our site again.
6. Transfer of data
