Data security
We employ advanced technologies to ensure data security, and specifically to protect your personal data from risks in transmission and disclosure to third parties. These technologies are regularly updated to reflect the state of the art.

Collection of personal data upon informational use
If you visit this website for informational purposes only, i.e., without becoming a registered user, signing up or otherwise transmitting data to us, we will not collect any personal data except those sent by your browser to enable you to visit the site. These are the following:

– IP address

– Contents of the query (specific webpage)

– Access status/HTTP status code

– Quantity of data communicated in each case

– Website from which the query originates

– Browser

– Language and browser software version

We will store these data, with full IP-addresses potentially attributable to a specific person, on our web server for reasons of technical security only, and particularly to defend against intrusion attempts, for a period not exceeding 14 days whereupon they will be anonymized / deleted.

Convenience functions
For an optimal viewing experience of our website (e.g., adaptation to different screen sizes, display of menus, contact form input control) we use design techniques such as JavaScript and CSS (cascading style sheets). You can deactivate the use of these techniques in your browser settings.

Cookies are small text files stored on your hard disk in association with the browser you are using, thereby causing certain information to pass to the site that places the cookie (in this case, ourselves). Cookies cannot execute programs nor transmit viruses to your computer. They are intended to make internet service more user-friendly and effective on the whole.

  1. a) This website uses cookies as follows:

– Transient cookies (temporary use)

– Persistent cookies (limited-time use)

  1. b) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. Session cookies specifically belong to this group. These store what is known as a session ID whereby various queries made by your browser can be assigned to the shared session. This way, your computer can be recognized when you return to the website.
  2. c) Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a predetermined duration, which may vary according to the cookie. You can delete these cookies anytime via the security settings of your browser.
  3. d) You can configure your browser as you wish and, e.g., refuse the acceptance of cookies.

Please note, however, that you may then not be able to use the full functionalities of this website.

This stored information is stored separately from any further data that may be transmitted to us. In particular, cookie data will not be linked to your other data (e.g., as part of contact requests or on-line job applications).

Use of web analysis services
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics also uses “cookies” (see the “Cookies” section in this privacy statement), which are placed on your computer to enable an analysis of how you use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, if the IP anonymization feature is activated on this website, Google will shorten your IP address beforehand in European Union member states or in other signatory states to the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the U.S.A. and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of schwartz GmbH to evaluate website traffic and to compile reports on website activity. Google will not associate the IP address transmitted by your browser under Google Analytics with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by choosing the appropriate settings in your browser (see the “Cookies” section in this privacy statement). You may also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) at Google, as well as the use of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in made available under the following link:
By way of alternative to this browser add-on, specifically for browsers on mobile terminal equipment, you may prevent the collection of data by Google Analytics by clicking on this link:  An opt-out cookie will then be placed in your computer which prevents any further collection of your data as you visit this website. The opt-out cookie is effective only in this browser and for our website and will be written to your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser you may have to set the opt-out cookie again. This website uses Google Analytics with the extension „_anonymizeIp()“. Accordingly, IP addresses will be processed in a shortened form so that any direct identifiability of persons can be excluded. Google Analytics is used subject to the preconditions agreed between the German Data Protection Authorities and Google.
