2. General information on data processing

2.1. Scope of processing of personal data

As a matter of principle, we process personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website and our contents and services. The regular processing of personal data of our users only takes place with the consent of the user. An exception is made in cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the processing of data is permitted by law.

2.2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the person concerned for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the person concerned is a party, Article 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of person concerned or of another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.

2.3. Data erasure and storage duration

The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage is no longer applicable. Storage may also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other regulations to which the person responsible is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.

3. Provision of the website and creation of log files

3.1. Description and scope of data processing

Whenever you visit our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.

The following data is collected:

  1. Information about the browser type and version used
  2. The user’s operating system
  3. The Internet service provider of the user
  4. The IP address of the user
  5. Date and time of access
  6. Websites from which the user’s system accesses our website
  7. Websites that are accessed by the user’s system via our website

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

3.2. Legal basis for the data processing

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

3.3. Purpose of the data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.

The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. The data is also used to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our Information Technology Systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

These purposes also include our legitimate interest in data processing in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

3.4. Duration of storage

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.

If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. A storage beyond this is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

3.5. Objection and elimination possibility

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. There is therefore no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

6. Web analysis by Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager

6.1. Scope of processing of personal data

We also use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). This use includes the Universal Analytics operating mode. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous User ID and thus analyze a user’s activities across devices.

Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, which are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

However, in the event that IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics was extended by an IP-anonymisation (“anonymizeIp”) in order to guarantee an anonymised collection of IP addresses (so-called IP-Masking). The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google.

This website also uses Google Analytics for a cross-device analysis of visitor flows, which is performed using a user ID. You can deactivate the cross-device analysis of your usage in your customer account under “My data”, “personal data”.

https://myaccount.google.com

Purpose of the processing

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with website and Internet use.

Legal basis

The use of Google Analytics takes place on the legal basis of the existence of a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Recipients / categories of recipients

The recipient of the collected data is Google.

Transfer to third countries

The personal data will be transferred to the US under the EU-US Privacy Shield on the basis of the adequacy finding of the European Commission. You can download the certificate here.

Duration of data storage

The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user recognitions (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 36 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month.

Rights of the person concerned

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being sent to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available here.

Opt-out cookies prevent the future collection of your data when you visit this website. To prevent Universal Analytics from collecting data across multiple devices, you must opt-out on all systems in use.

Further information on terms of use and data protection can be found in the Google Analytics conditions or under Privacy Policy & Terms of Use.

Google Tag Manager

Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows marketers to manage website tags through one interface. The Tag Manager tool itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-free domain and does not collect any personal data. The tool takes care of triggering other tags, which in turn may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If disabled at the domain or cookie level, it will persist for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager. http://www.google.de/tagmanager/use-policy.html

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format.

(2) the processing is carried out using automated procedures.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to obtain that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, in so far as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.

The right to data transferability shall not apply to processing of personal data which is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

8.7. Right of objection

You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Art. 6, para. 1 lit. e or f DSGVO; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

8.9. Automated decision in individual cases including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, that has legal effect on you or significantly affects you in a similar way. This shall not apply if the decision

(1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the person responsible

(2) is authorised by Union or national legislation to which the person responsible is subject and that legislation provides for appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests; or

(3) with your express consent.

However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data in accordance with Art. 9 para. 1 DSGVO, unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g DSGVO applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.

In the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the responsible person shall take appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, which shall include at least the right to obtain the intervention of any person from the responsible person, to put forward his point of view and to contest the decision.

8.10. Right of appeal to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State in which you are resident, in your place of work or in the place where the alleged infringement occurred, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you is in breach of the DSGVO.

The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been submitted shall inform the complainant of the status and the results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Art. 78 DSGVO.
