1. Data Privacy in a glance
The following notes provide a simple overview of what happens to your personal data when you visit this website. Personal data is any data that can be used to identify you personally. For detailed information on the subject of data protection, please refer to the following data privacy declaration.
Data collection on this website
Who is responsible for data collection on this website?
Data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator. You can find their contact details in the imprint of this website.
How do we collect your data?
One way we collect your data is by you providing it to us. This can be, for example, data that you enter in a contact form.
Other data is collected by our IT systems automatically or with your consent when you visit the website. This is mainly technical data (e.g. Internet browser, operating system or time of page view). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter this website.
What do we use your data for?
Some of the data is collected to ensure error-free provision of the website. Other data may be used to analyze your user behaviour.
What rights do you have regarding your data?
At any time, you have the right to receive information free of charge about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data. You also have a right to request the correction or deletion of this data. If you have given your consent to data processing, you can revoke this consent at any future time. You also have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data under certain circumstances. Furthermore, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the respective supervisory authority.
For this purpose, as well as for further questions on the subject of data protection, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint.
Analysis tools and third-party tools
When visiting this website, your surfing behaviour may be statistically analyzed. This is done primarily with so-called analytics programs.
2. General notes and obligatory data protection information
The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data with confidentiality and in accordance with the legal data protection regulations as well as this data protection declaration.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
Note on the responsible party
The responsible party for data processing on this website is:
WuWIT GmbH Farmser Str. 30 31174 Schellerten Germany
Phone: +49 228 9359 6868 e-mail: Info@wuwit.com URL: wuwit.com
The responsible party is the individual or legal entity which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses or similar).
Unless a more specific storage period has been specified within this data protection declaration, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for processing the data no longer applies. If you assert a legitimate request for deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted, providing that we have no other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g. retention periods under tax or commercial law). In the latter case, the data will be deleted once these reasons no longer apply.
Note on data transfer to the USA
Among other things, tools from companies based in the USA are integrated on our website. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to the US servers of the respective companies. We would like to point out that USA is not a safe third country as defined by the EU data protection law. US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you, as a data subject, being able to take legal action against this. It can therefore not be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. intelligence services) process, evaluate and permanently store your data located on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.
Revoking your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation, remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct marketing (Art.21GDPR).
IF DATA PROCESSING IS CARRIED OUT ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6 PAR. 1 LIT. E OR F GDPR (GERMAN DATA PROTECTION REGULATION), YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA AT ANY TIME FOR REASONS ARISING FROM YOUR PARTICULAR SITUATION; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. THE RESPECTIVE LEGAL BASIS ON WHICH PROCESSING IS BASED CAN BE FOUND IN THIS DATA PROTECTION DECLARATION. IF YOU OBJECT, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA UNLESS WE CAN DEMONSTRATE COMPELLING LEGITIMATE GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING WHICH OVERRIDE YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS, OR THE PROCESSING IS FOR THE PURPOSE OF ASSERTING, EXERCISING OR DEFENDING LEGAL CLAIMS (OBJECTION UNDER ARTICLE 21(1) GDPR).
IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA ARE BEING PROCESSED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA RELATING TO YOU FOR THE PURPOSE OF SUCH MARKETING; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING INSOFAR AS IT IS RELATED TO SUCH DIRECT MARKETING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ARTICLE 21 (2) OF THE GERMAN DATA PROTECTION ACT).
The right to appeal to the relevant supervisory authority
In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects shall have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged violation. The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in performance of a contract, handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible party, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS Encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us, the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection when the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and when the lock symbol appears in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, third parties cannot read the data you transmit to us.
Information, deletion and correction
You have the right at any time, within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, to obtain free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, the right to correct or delete this data. For this purpose, as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint.
Right of restriction of processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. To do this, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:
If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the review, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If the processing of your personal data happened/is happening unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPA, a balancing of yours and our interests must be carried out. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data – apart from its storage – may only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another individual or legal entity or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
Objection to advertising e-mails
We hereby object to the use of contact data published within the scope of the imprint obligation to send unsolicited advertising and information material. The operators of the pages explicitly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam e-mails.

Our Internet pages utilize the so-called “Cookies”. Cookies are small text files and do not cause any damage to your terminal device. They are stored either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies) on your end device. Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them yourself or until your web browser automatically deletes them.
In some cases, cookies from third-party companies may also be stored on your terminal device when you enter our site (third-party cookies). These enable us, or you to use certain services from the third-party company (e.g. cookies for processing payment services).
Cookies have various functions. Many cookies are technically necessary, as certain website functions would not work without them (e.g. the shopping cart function or the display of videos). Other cookies are used to evaluate user behaviour or to display advertising.
Cookies that are necessary to carry out the electronic communication process (necessary cookies) or to provide certain functions that you have requested (functional cookies, e.g. for the shopping cart function) or to optimize the website (e.g. cookies to measure the web audience) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR, unless another legal basis is specified. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. If consent to the storage of cookies has been requested, the storage of the cookies in question is based exclusively on this consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). The consent can be revoked at any time.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser.

In case cookies are used by third party companies or for analysis purposes, we will inform you separately about this within the scope of this data protection declaration and, if necessary, request your consent.
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so- called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
Browser type and browser version, operating system used, Referrer URL
Host name of the accessing computer, time of the server request, IP address
This data is not merged with other data sources.
The collection of this data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimization of its website – for this purpose, the server log files must be collected.
If you send us inquiries via a contact form, your data from this form, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
If your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, the processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR) if this has been requested.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
Inquiry by e-mail, telephone or fax
If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your inquiry including all resulting personal data (name, inquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
If your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, the processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests sent to us (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR) if this has been requested.
The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular legal retention periods – remain unaffected.
4. Social Media
On our website, we use social plug-ins from the social media network LinkedIn, of LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The social plug-ins may be feeds, sharing content or linking to our LinkedIn page. The social plug-ins are clearly marked with the familiar LinkedIn logo and allow, for example sharing interesting content directly via our website. LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company Wilton Place in Dublin is responsible for data processing for the European Economic Area and Switzerland.
What is LinkedIn?
LinkedIn is the largest social network for business contacts. Unlike Facebook for example, the company focuses exclusively on building business contacts. Companies can present services and products on the platform and establish business relationships. Many people also use LinkedIn to look for jobs or to find suitable employees for their own company. In Germany alone, the network has over 11 million members. In Austria, there are about 1.3 million.
Why do we use LinkedIn on our website?
We know how busy you are. That’s why you can’t follow all social media channels individually; even if it would be worth it, like in our case. After all, we keep posting interesting news or reports that are worth sharing. That’s why we’ve made a feature on our website to share interesting content directly on LinkedIn, or to link directly to our LinkedIn page. We consider built-in social plug-ins as an extended service on our website. The data that LinkedIn collects also helps us show possible advertising measures only to people who are interested in our offers.
What data does LinkedIn store?
LinkedIn does not store personal data through the mere integration of the social plug-ins. LinkedIn calls this data generated by plug-ins passive impressions. However, when you click on a social plug-in to share our content, for example, the platform stores personal data as so-called “active impressions”. And this is regardless of whether you have a LinkedIn account or not. If you are logged in, the collected data is assigned to your account.
When you interact with our plug-ins, your browser establishes a direct connection to LinkedIn’s servers. This way, the company logs various usage data. In addition to your IP address, this can be for example login data, device information or info about your Internet or mobile provider. If you access LinkedIn services via your smartphone, then your location can also be determined (after you have allowed that). LinkedIn may also share this data in “hashed” form with third-party advertisers. Hashing means turning a dataset into a string of characters. This can be used to encrypt the data in such a way that individuals can no longer be identified.
Most data about your user behavior is stored in cookies. These are small text files that are usually set in your browser. Furthermore, LinkedIn can also use web beacons, pixel tags, display tags and other device identifiers.
How long and where is the data stored?
In principle, LinkedIn retains your personal data for as long as the company considers it necessary to provide its own services. However, LinkedIn deletes your personal data when you delete your account. In some exceptional cases, LinkedIn retains some data in aggregate and anonymous form even after you delete your account. Once you delete your account, other people will not be able
to see your data within one day. LinkedIn generally deletes data within 30 days. However, LinkedIn retains data if it is necessary due to legal obligation. Data that can no longer be assigned to individuals remain stored even after the account is closed. The data is stored on various servers in America and probably also in Europe.
How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?
You have the right to access and also delete your personal data at any time. In your LinkedIn account, you can manage, change and delete your data. In addition, you can also request a copy of your personal data from LinkedIn.
To access account data in your LinkedIn profile:
At LinkedIn, click on your profile icon and select the “Settings and Privacy” section. Now click on “Privacy” and then in the “How LinkedIn uses your data” section click on “Change”. In just a short time, you can download selected data about your web activity and account history.
LinkedIn is an active participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. This framework ensures proper data transfer between the U.S. and the European Union. Visit https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000L0UZAA0 to learn more. We have tried to bring you closer to the most important information about LinkedIn’s data processing. At https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy you can learn even more about the data processing of the social media network LinkedIn.
What is Xing?
Xing is a social network with its headquarters in Hamburg, Germany. The company specializes in managing professional contacts. This means that, unlike other networks, Xing is primarily about professional networking. The platform is often used for job searches or to find employees for one’s own company. In addition, Xing offers interesting content on various professional topics. The global counterpart is the American company LinkedIn.
Why do we use Xing on our website?
There is now a flood of social media channels and we are well aware that your time is very precious. Not every company’s social media channel can be scrutinized closely. That’s why we want to make your life as easy as possible, so
you can share or follow interesting content directly from our website on Xing. With such “social plug-ins” we expand our service on our website. In addition, the data collected by Xing helps us to carry out targeted advertising measures on the platform. This means that our service is only shown to people who are really interested in it.
What data does Xing store?
Xing offers the share button, the follow button and the login button as plug-ins for websites. As soon as you open a page where a social plug-in from Xing is built in, your browser connects to servers in a data center used by Xing. In the case of the share button, no data is stored – according to Xing – that could infer a direct reference to a person. In particular, Xing does not store your IP address. Furthermore, no cookies are set in connection with the share button. Thus, no evaluation of your user behavior takes place. You can obtain more information about this at https://www.xing.com/app/share%3Fop%3Ddata_protection.
Cookies are only set in your browser for the other Xing plug-ins when you interact with the plug-in or click on it. In this case, personal data such as your IP address, browser data, date and time of your page view on Xing may be stored. If you have a XING account and are logged in, collected data will be assigned to your personal account and the data stored in it.
As soon as you are logged in or become a member of Xing, further personal data will definitely be collected, processed and stored. Xing also discloses personal data to third parties if this is necessary for the fulfillment of its own business purposes, if you have given your consent, or if there is a legal obligation.
How long and where is the data stored?
Xing stores the data on various servers in various data centers. The company stores this data until you delete the data or until a user account is deleted. Of course, this only affects users who are already Xing members.
How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?
You have the right to access and also delete your personal data at any time. Even if you are not a Xing member, you can use your browser to prevent possible data processing or manage it according to your wishes. Most data is stored via cookies.
You can also basically set up your browser so that you are always informed when a cookie is to be set. Then you can always decide individually whether you want to allow the cookie or not.
We have tried to provide you with the most important information about data processing by Xing. You can learn even more about the data processing of the social media network Xing at https://privacy.xing.com/de/datenschutzerklaerung.
Facebook plugins (Like & Share button).
Plugins of the social network Facebook are integrated on this website. The provider of this service is Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland. However, according to Facebook, the data collected is also transferred to the USA and other third countries.
You can recognize the Facebook plugins from the Facebook logo or the “Like button” (“Like”) on this website. You can find an overview of the Facebook plugins here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=de_DE..
If you do not want Facebook to be able to associate your visit to this website with your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook user account.
The use of Facebook plugins is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in ensuring the greatest possible visibility in social media. If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is based exclusively on Art. 6 (1) a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.
Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. Details can be found here:
