III. General

1. The extent to which personal data is processed

We collect and use the personal data of users of our homepage only to the extent that this is necessary for keeping our website, contents and services functioning properly.

Basically, we collect and use our users’ personal data only after they give their consent. An exception to this principle applies in cases where processing the data by statutory provisions is permitted or when obtaining prior consent for actual reasons is not possible.

2. Legal basis for processing personal data

The legal basis for processing personal data is basically based on:

  • Art. 6 Section 1 lit. a GDPR upon obtaining the consent of the data subject.
  • Art. 6 Section 1 lit. b GDPR for processing operations that serve to fulfil a contract to which the data subject is a party. Included here are processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.
  • Art. 6 Section 1 lit. c GDPR for processing required to fulfil a legal obligation.
  • Art. 6 Section 1 lit. d GDPR, if vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data.
  • Art. 6 Section 1 lit. f GDPR, if the processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest.

3. Data erasure and storage duration

The personal data of users will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage is no longer applicable. Additional storage may be provided for by European or national legislators through EU regulations, laws, or other regulations to which the data controller is subject. Blocking or deleting the data also takes place when a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires unless there is a need for additional storage of the data for concluding a contract or fulfilling the contract.

 

IV. Use of our website, general information

1. Description and scope of data processing

Every time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the user's computer system. The following information is collected:

  • Information about the browser type and version used
  • The user’s operating system
  • The user’s IP address
  • Date and time of access
  • Websites the user’s system accesses to get to our website
  • Websites that the user's system invokes by accessing our website

The described data are stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with any other personal user data.

2. Purpose and legal basis for data processing

Our system must temporarily store user IP addresses to allow us to deliver our website to the user's computer.

To do this, the user's IP address must be stored for the duration of the session.

Storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data is used to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. This data is not evaluated for marketing purposes in this context.

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 Section 1 lit. f GDPR.

Collecting your personal data to ensure our web presence and storing this data in log files is essential for operating our website. A contradictory possibility of the user therefore does not exist.

3. Duration of storage

Your data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for achieving the purpose of the inquiry. Your data will be deleted when the session ends if your data has been collected to ensure the site's availability.

If your data is stored in log files, it will be deleted after seven days at the latest. Further storage is possible, whereby in this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated. This means that it is then no longer possible to assign the client who has accessed our website.

 

V. General information about the use of cookies

We use cookies on our website. Cookies are text files that are stored in the Internet browser or by the Internet browser on the user’s computer system. If you display a website, this is how a cookie can be stored on your operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic string that allows the browser to be clearly when the website is accessed again.

We use cookies to make our homepage more user friendly. Some elements of our website require that the browser be identified even after a page break.

TDDDG:

The legal basis for the storage of cookies, device identifiers and similar tracking technologies or for the storage of information in the end user's terminal equipment and access to this information is the European ePrivacy Directive in conjunction with the Telecommunications Digital Services Data Protection Act (TDSDPA; in German: TDDDG).

Please note that the legal basis for the processing of personal data collected in this context then results from the GDPR. The relevant legal basis for the processing of personal data in each specific case can be found below the respective cookie or the respective processing itself.

The primary legal basis for the storage of information in the end user's terminal equipment - consequently in particular for the storage of cookies - is their consent, §25 Abs.1 S.1 TDSDPA (Ger.: TDDDG). Consent is given when visiting our website - although this does not have to be given, of course - and can be revoked at any time in the cookie settings.

According to §25 Abs.2 Nr.2 TDSDPA (Ger.: TDDDG), consent is not required if the storage of information in the end user's terminal equipment or access to information already stored in the end user's terminal equipment is absolutely necessary for the provider of a tele media service to be able to provide a tele media service expressly requested by the user. You can see from the cookie settings which cookies are to be classified as absolutely necessary (often also referred to as "technically necessary cookies") and which consequently fall under the exception of §25 Para.2 TDSDPA (Ger.: TDDDG), therefore do not require consent.

GDPR:

The following data is stored and transmitted:

(1) Language settings
(2) Log-in information

We would like to point out that some functions on our website can only be offered if cookies are enabled. This applies to the following applications:

(1) Adopting language settings
(2) Remembering keywords

We do not use user data collected by technically required cookies to create user profiles.

Cookies are stored on the user’s computer, which transmits them to our page. As a user, you therefore have control over the use of cookies. You can restrict or disable transmission of cookies by making changes to your Internet browser settings. Here you can also delete cookies that have been stored. Please note that you may not be able to use all the features on our website if you deactivate cookies.

 

VI. Data transfer outside the EU

The GDPR ensures an equally high level of data protection within the European Union. When selecting our service providers, we therefore rely on European partners wherever possible if your personal data is to be processed. Only in exceptional cases will we have data processed outside the European Union in the context of using third-party services. We will only allow your data to be processed in a third country if the special requirements of Art. 44 et seq. DSGVO are fulfilled. This means that your data may then only be processed based on special guarantees, such as the officially recognized determination by the EU Commission of a level of data protection corresponding to the EU or the observance of officially recognized special contractual obligations, the so-called "standard data protection clauses".

 

VII. Your rights/rights of the data subject

According to the EU General Data Protection Regulation, as an affected party you have the following rights:

  • Your personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
  • The processing is based on a consent according to Art. 6 Section 1 lit. a or Art. 9 Section 2 lit. a GDPR protected and you revoke the consent. Another condition is that there is no other legal basis for the processing.
  • You object to the processing (Art. 21 Section 1 GDPR) and there are no legitimate reasons for the processing. Another possibility is that you have a protest against the processing pursuant to Art. 21 Section 2 GDPR.
  • The processing of your personal data is unlawful.
  • Deleting personal data concerning you is required to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the data controller is subject.
  • The personal data concerning you were collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Art. 8 Section 1 GDPR.

If we have made personal data concerning you public and we are obligated to delete them according to Art. 17 Section 1 of the GDPR, then we shall take appropriate measures, while also taking the available technology, implementation costs and the available technology into account, to inform data controllers who process the personal data that you, as the data subject, have requested the deletion of all links to such personal data or of copies or replications of such personal data.

We would like to point out that the right to delete does not exist to the extent that processing is required:

  • to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information
  • to fulfil a legal obligation required by the law of the Union or of the Member States to which the controller is subject, or to carry out a task of public interest or to exercise the official authority conferred on the controller
  • for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to Art. 9 Section 2 lit. h and i and Art. 9 (3) GDPR
  • for archival purposes of public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 Section 1 GDPR, to the extent that the law referred to in Section (a) is likely to render impossible or seriously affect the achievement of the objectives of that processing, or
  • to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

5. Right to notification

If you have asserted the right to rectify, delete or restrict the processing, we are obligated to notify all recipients to whom your personal data have been disclosed of this correction or deletion of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves to be impossible or is associated with a disproportionate amount of effort. You also have the right to be informed about these recipients.

6. Right to data portability

According to the GDPR, you also have the right to obtain the personal data provided to us and to receive it in a structured, understandable and machine-readable format. Furthermore, you have the right to transfer this data to another data controller without hindrance by the data controller for providing the personal data, provided that

  • the processing is based on consent as defined in Art. 6 Section 1 lit. a GDPR or Art. 9 Section 2 lit. a GDPR or on a contract acc. Art. 6 Section 1 lit. b GDPR
  • and the processing is done using automated procedures.

Finally, where technically feasible and without harm to the freedoms and rights of others and as part of exercising the right of data transferability, you have the right to obtain that personal data related to you that has been transmitted directly from one controller to another.

The right to data portability does not apply to processing that personal data necessary for performing a task in the public interest or for exercising the official authority that has been delegated to the data controller.

7. Right to revoke the declaration of consent

You have the right to revoke your data protection declaration at any time. Please note that revoking consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out based on the consent until the revocation goes into effect.

8. Right to objection

The data controller will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless he can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and liberties, or the processing is for enforcing, exercising, or defending legal claims.

If the personal data related to you are processed for advertising purposes, then you have the right to object at any time to your personal data being processed for such advertising. This also applies to profiling, as far as it is associated with such direct marketing. Your personal data will no longer be processed for direct marketing purposes if you object to your data being used for such purposes.

You also have the option of discussing the use of information society services (despite Directive 2002/58/EC).

Exercise your right to object by using automated procedures that use technical specifications.

9. Automated decision on an individual basis, including profiling

Under the EU General Data Protection Regulation, you remain entitled not to be subjected to a decision based solely on automated processing - including profiling - which would have legal effect or would affect you in a similar manner. An exception to this principle, however, is when the decision

  • is required for concluding or fulfilling a contract between you and the data controller,
  • and is permissible based on Union or Member State legislation to which the controller is subject, and that legislation contains adequate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or
  • is with your express consent.

If the processing is carried out in accordance with the cases mentioned in Section 1 and 3, then the data controller shall take appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests. This includes at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the data controller to state his own position and to contest the decision.

The ruling under (1) – (3) may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 Section 1 GDPR, unless Art. 9 Section 2 lit. a or g and reasonable measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.

10. Right to complain to a supervisory authority

Finally, if you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you is contrary to the GDPR, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in the Member State of its place of residence, employment or the location of the alleged infringement.

XIV. Social Media

1. Social media presence

We maintain fan pages within various social networks and platforms for communicating with customers, prospects and users who are active there and for informing them about our services.

We would like to point out that your personal data may be processed outside the European Union, which may pose risks to you (e.g., in enforcing your rights under European/German law). Please note that some US providers are certified under the Privacy Shield and are committed to respecting EU privacy standards.

These users’ data are usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. Thus, for example, user profiles are created based on the user’s behaviour and interests. These usage profiles can in turn be used to do such things as place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that are allegedly in line with users' interests. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the user’s computer where the user’s behaviour and the user’s interests are stored. Furthermore, in the usage profiles, data can also be stored independently of the devices that the users use (this is especially true if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them).

Processing personal user data is based on our legitimate interests in an effective user information and communication with users in accordance with. Art. 6 Section 1 lit. f. GDPR. The legal basis for processing user info is Art. 6 Section a., Art. 7 GDPR, and this entails the respective providers asking users to consent to data processing (that is, that they declare their agreement, for example, by ticking a check box or clicking on a button to confirm).

Additional information about processing your personal data as well as your revocation options can be found under the links for the respective providers listed below. The assertion of information and further rights of the data subjects can likewise take place opposite the offerors, who then have only the direct access to the data of the users and have appropriate information. Of course, we are available for questions and support if you need help.

A supplementary agreement is concluded with some social media platforms when operating a fan page. According to this agreement, data subject rights can usually be asserted both with the social media platform and with us. However, the primary responsibility under the GDPR for the processing of insights data lies with the social media platform and it fulfils all obligations under the GDPR with regard to the processing of insights data. In this context, the social media platform provides the essence of the page insights supplement to the data subjects. We, as the operator of the Fanpage, do not make any decisions regarding the processing of Insights data and all other information resulting from Art. 13 DSGVO, such as the legal basis, the identity of the responsible party and the storage period of cookies on user terminals.

XVI. Online Advertising

1. Use of Google Ads

We use "Google Ads" (formerly Google AdWords) on our website, a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as "Google"). Google Ads enables us to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising media on external websites. This enables us to determine how successful individual advertising measures are. These advertising media are delivered by Google via so-called "AdServers". For this purpose, we use so-called AdServer cookies, which can be used to measure certain parameters for measuring success, such as display of the ads or clicks by users. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Ads will store a cookie on your PC. . The following information is usually stored as analysis values for this cookie: unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions), opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed). These cookies enable Google to recognize your web browser. If a user visits certain pages of an Ads customer's website and the cookie stored on their computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page. A different cookie is assigned to each Ads customer. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across Ads customers' websites. We ourselves do not collect or process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. Based on these evaluations, we can see which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective.

2. DoubleClick by Google

This website also uses the online marketing tool DoubleClick by Google. DoubleClick uses cookies to serve ads that are relevant to users, to improve campaign performance reports, or to prevent a user from seeing the same ads multiple times. Google uses a cookie ID to determine which ads are running in which browser and can prevent them from being displayed multiple times. In addition, DoubleClick uses cookie IDs to track conversions related to ad requests. This can occur, for example, if a user sees a DoubleClick ad and later goes to the advertiser's website with the same browser and buys something there. According to Google, DoubleClick cookies do not contain personally identifiable information.

Your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server because of the marketing tools used. We have no control over the extent and the later use of the data that is collected through Google’s use of this tool and we will therefore inform you according to our level of knowledge. By integrating DoubleClick, Google receives the information that you have accessed the relevant part of our website or have clicked on an ad from us. If you are registered with a service provided by Google, then Google may associate the visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is a possibility that the provider will find out and store your IP address.

You can prevent participation in this tracking process several different ways:

  1. by setting your browser software; accordingly, suppressing third-party cookies will prevent you from receiving any third-party advertisements
  2. by deactivating cookies for conversion tracking by adjusting your browser settings so that cookies from the domain called “https://ads.google.com/” are then blocked, https://www.google.de/settings/ads, whereby this setting will be deleted once you delete your cookies
  3. by disabling interest-based ads from providers that are part of the About Ads self-regulatory campaign by clicking on http://www.aboutads.info/choices, which will be deleted when you delete your cookies
  4. through permanent deactivation in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browsers under the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to fully utilize all the features of this offer.

The legal basis for processing your data is Art. Art. 6 Section 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR.
