    The use of our website is normally possible without providing personal data.

    To the extent that personal data is collected on our pages (e.g. name, postal address or email addresses), this always takes place on a voluntary basis, insofar as possible.

    We also collect navigation information. This is the data on your computer relating to your visit to our website, particularly your IP address, your location, the browser that you used, referral source, duration of your visit and pages visited by you.

    In addition to the other types of use that are listed in this data privacy statement, we use your personal data to improve your use of the browser with personalization of websites and for improvement of the registration service.

    By filling out a registration form on our website, you agree to receive emails from CENIT.

    The emails contain information about new products and offers.

    We do not provide third parties with your personal data that we process for the delivery of emails. You can unsubscribe from these emails at any time with effect for the future.

    This data is not given to third parties without your express consent.


    Area of validity

    The legal principles of data protection are defined in the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Broadcast Media Act (TMG).


    Access data / server log files

    The provider (and/or their webspace provider) collects data each time the offering is accessed (so-called server log files). The access data includes:

    • the name of the visited website, file, date and time of the visit, quantity of data transmitted, notification of a successful visit, browser type and version, operating system of the user, referrer URL (previously visited site), IP address and the inquiring provider.

    The provider uses the log data exclusively for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of the offering. The provider reserves the right to review the log data retroactively if there is a justifiable suspicion of illegal use based on concrete indications.


    Handling of personal data

    Personal data is information which can help identify a person. In other words, it is information that can be traced back to a person. This includes the person's name, email address and telephone number. Personal data also includes information about preferences, hobbies, memberships or websites which have been visited.

    Personal data is only collected, used and shared by the provider if permitted by law or the user has given their consent to the data collection.



    When making contact with the provider (via a contact form or email, etc.), the user's information is saved for the purpose of handling the inquiry or in case there are follow-up questions.



    We inform you about ourselves and our offerings with the newsletter.

    If you would like to receive the newsletter, we require a valid email address and information that enables us to check to ensure that you are the owner of the specified email address and/or its owner agrees to receive the newsletter. No additional data is collected. This data is used to send the newsletter and is not shared with third parties.

    When you register for the newsletter, we save your IP address and the date of registration. This takes place solely for verification in the event that a third party misuses an email address and registers for the newsletter without the knowledge of the entitled party.

    Your consent to the storage of data, the email address and use thereof to send the newsletter can be revoked at any time. This can take place via a link in the newsletters, in your profile area or by sending a message via the contact options indicated above.


    Integration of services and third-party content

    It is possible that third-party content, such as videos on YouTube, map material of Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, is integrated within this online offering. In this case, it is always assumed that the providers of said content (referred to hereinafter as "third-party providers") notice the IP addresses of the users. Without the IP address, the content cannot be sent to the browser of the user. Therefore, the IP address is necessary for the presentation of this content. We strive to only use content from providers who only use the IP address for the delivery of content. However, we have no influence on whether the third-party providers store IP addresses for statistical purpose, etc. We explain this to the user, insofar as we know.



    Cookies are small files that make it possible to store specific device-related information on the access device of the user (PC, smart phone, etc.). They are used to improve user-friendliness of websites (e.g. saving of login data). They also collect statistical data about use of the website and can be analyzed for the purpose of improving the offering. Users can influence the use of cookies. Most browsers have an option with which the storage of cookies can be limited or blocked altogether. However, it should be taken into consideration that the use of websites and, in particular, convenience, can be limited without cookies.

    Google Analytics

    This offering uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on the computers of the users and which enable an analysis of the use of the website by them. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by the users is normally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

    However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, the IP addresses of the users are truncated beforehand within Member States of the European Union or in other Treaty States party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is only transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there in exceptional cases. IP anonymization is activated on this website. Google uses this information on behalf of the operator of this website in order to evaluate the use of the website by the users in order to compile reports on the website activity and in order to provide the website operator additional services related to the website use and internet use.

    The IP address communicated by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not combined with other data by Google. Users can prevent the storage of cookies with an appropriate setting in their browser software; however, it should be taken into that it may not be possible to use all functions of this website to the full extent. Users can also prevent collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the website (including their IP addresses) by Google and the processing of said data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

    Using Facebook Social Plugins

    This site uses social plugins ("plugins") of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook"). The plugins can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos (white "f" on green tile) or are marked with the addition "Facebook Social Plugin". The list and appearance of Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

    When a user accesses a website on this site that contains such a plugin, his browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook's servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the website. The provider therefore has no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs users according to their level of knowledge.

    By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives information that a user has called up the corresponding page of the offer. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. When users interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the Like button or making a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to obtain and store their IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is stored in Germany.

    The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as the relevant rights and setting options for the protection of users' privacy, can be found in Facebook's data protection information: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

    If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to use this offer to collect data about him or her and link it to his or her membership data stored on Facebook, he or she must log out of Facebook before visiting the website. Further settings and objections to the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads.



    This site uses the buttons of the Twitter service. These buttons are provided by Twitter Inc, 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. They can be recognized by terms such as "Twitter" or "sequence", combined with a white "t" on green tile. With the help of the buttons it is possible to share a post or page of this offer on Twitter or to follow the provider on Twitter.

    When a user accesses a website on this website that contains such a button, his browser establishes a direct connection to Twitter's servers. The content of the Twitter button is transmitted directly from Twitter to the user's browser. The provider therefore has no influence on the amount of data Twitter collects with the help of this plugin and informs users according to their level of knowledge. After this only the IP address of the user the URL of the respective web page is transmitted with the purchase of the Buttons, but not for other purposes, than the representation of the Buttons, used. Further information can be found in Twitter's privacy policy at http://twitter.com/privacy.



    On our site we use components of the LinkedIn network. LinkedIn is a service of LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Every time you visit our website, which is equipped with such a component, this component causes the browser you use to download a corresponding representation of the LinkedIn component.

    This process informs LinkedIn which specific page of our website is currently being visited. If you click the LinkedIn "Recommend-Button" while logged into your LinkedIn account, you can link the contents of our pages on your LinkedIn profile. This enables LinkedIn to assign the visit of our pages to your LinkedIn user account.

    We have no influence on the data LinkedIn collects through this, nor on the extent of the data collected by LinkedIn. We also have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted to LinkedIn. Details regarding the collection of data by LinkedIn as well as your rights and setting options can be found in LinkedIn's privacy policy.
