Personal data is information that can be used to identify a person, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. The legal basis of data protection can be found in particular in Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data, on the free movement of data and on the repeal of Directive 95/46/EC (“Basic Data Protection Regulation”, DSGVO) as well as in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).

your rights

In accordance with the statutory provisions, you as the data subject have the right to receive information about your data stored by us free of charge at any time.

In addition, you can assert your rights to correction, deletion or restriction of the processing or the right of objection against us at any time. This also applies to a right to data transferability.

If your personal data is based on legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 (1) f. DSGVO, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data in accordance with Art. 21 DSGVO, provided that there are reasons for this which arise from your particular situation or the objection is directed against direct advertising.

Visit the website; server log files

The provider of the website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

Name of the accessed website, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.

as well as when using a mobile device:

Country code, language, device name, operating system name and version.

We store this data for reasons of data security in order to guarantee the stability and operational security of the website. If the IP address is stored, this is done on the basis of the legal basis Art. 6 (1) c. DSGVO or Art. 6 (1) f. DSGVO because of our legitimate interest in quality assurance.

Contact form and other contact

If you send us enquiries via the contact form or send us an e-mail or otherwise contact us, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact data, name and e-mail address provided by you there, as well as optionally the telephone number or other data provided, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. These data are processed only on the basis of your consent (legal basis Art. 6 (1) a. DSGVO) or on the basis of an initiating or existing business relationship with us (legal basis Art. 6 (1) b. DSGVO).

Automated decision making (“profiling”)

When using the offer, no profiling or automated decision-making by us takes place; however, such profiling may be carried out in individual cases by third party providers used by us, whereby we refer to this in this data protection declaration as far as possible.

Profiling means any automated processing of personal data consisting in the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to the performance of work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or relocation of that natural person. Examples of such profiling include the analysis of data (e.g. based on statistical methods) with the aim of displaying personalized advertising to the user or giving shopping tips.

The data subject shall not be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing, including profiling, which has legal effect against him or significantly affects him or her in a similar manner.

This shall not apply where the decision (i) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller, (ii) is admissible under Union or Member State law to which the data controller is subject and where such law contains appropriate measures to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject or (iii) is taken with the data subject’s express consent. In such exceptional cases, the person responsible shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the data subject, to state his own position and to challenge the decision.

cookies

Cookies are small files that enable the user’s access device (PC, smartphone, etc.) to store specific information relating to the device. They serve on the one hand the user friendliness of web pages and thus you (e.g. storage of login data). On the other hand, they are used to collect statistical data on the use of the website and to analyse it for the purpose of improving the website.

Objection: You can influence the use of cookies. Most browsers have an option with which the storage of cookies is restricted or completely prevented. However, it is pointed out that the use and especially the comfort of use are limited without cookies.

When you visit the website, so-called session cookies are used, which are automatically deleted from the user’s hard drive as soon as the browser window closes. The session cookies are required in order to assign successive page views to the respective users who access the website at the same time.

You can manage many corporate online ad cookies through the US site http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU site http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google LLC, Mountain View, CA, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on the end device used to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the offer, such as

browser type/version; operating system used; referrer URL (previously visited page); host name of the accessing computer (IP address); time of server request when using the website

are usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there, but due to the activation of IP anonymisation on the website, Google’s IP address is previously reduced within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is therefore not transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. IP anonymization is active on the website. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the website by users, to compile reports on website activities and to provide us with further services relating to the use of the offer and the Internet. Insofar as IP anonymisation is omitted, data processing is carried out on the legal basis Art. 6 (1) f. DSGVO or TMG, whereby our legitimate interests (or the legitimate interests of third parties commissioned by us) of quality assurance or statistical analysis of user behaviour are pursued.

The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. 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 the website.

Objection: You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including the IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

We also use Google Analytics to evaluate data from Adwords for statistical purposes. Objection: If you do not want this, you can disable it at http://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/?hl=en.

We would also like to point out that if Google and an existing account are integrated, automated decision making (“profiling”) (see also above) can take place there. Objection: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated

Further information can also be found in Google’s privacy policy: http://www.google.de/policies/privacy/

Google Adsense

This website also uses Google AdSense, a web service of Google LLC, Mountain View, CA, USA (“Google”), to place third-party advertising on our website. We would therefore like to point out that Google also uses cookies to be able to offer this service. These cookies are stored on your computer or device next to so-called “webbeacons” (small, invisible graphic files, also called “tracking pixels”), which can be used to evaluate information about the visit and use of our website.

The information generated by the cookies and/or web beacons is transferred to a Google server in the USA and processed there. Google may share this information with its contractors. Under no circumstances will Google associate your IP address with other data collected about you and/or your visit to our website and the use of our services.

Objection: You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser accordingly, for example by setting your browser to deactivate the automatic setting of cookies generally or specifically only block cookies from the “googleadservices.com” domain (at: https://www.google.com/ads/preferences/html/blocked-cookies.html).

Please note that with the integration of Google or an existing Google account an automated decision making (“profiling”) (see also above) can take place. Objection: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated

Measuring method IVW/INFOOnline

We use the measurement method (“SZMnG”) of INFOnline GmbH (https://www.infonline.de) (“INF”) to determine statistical parameters about the use of our services. We can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you by using the statistics obtained. For web providers who are members of the Informationsgemeinschaft zur Feststellung der Verbreitung von Werbeträgern e. V. (IVW – http://www.ivw.eu) or the studies of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Online-Forschung e. V. (AGOF – http://www.agof.de), the usage statistics are published regularly and can be viewed on the various websites. INF ensures that individual users cannot be identified at any time. Data that may be related to a specific, identifiable person will be anonymized as soon as possible. The IP addresses are shortened before any processing and only processed further within the EU in anonymised form.

The unabridged IP addresses are not stored or processed. A so-called geolocalization, i.e. the allocation of a web page call to the place of the call, takes place exclusively on the basis of the anonymized IP address and only up to the geographical level of the federal states/regions. Under no circumstances can the geographical information obtained in this way be used to draw conclusions about the specific place of residence of a user.

Objection: If you do not want to participate in the measurement, you can use the following link: http://optout.ioam.de

Further information on data protection in the measurement procedure can be found on the website of INFOnline GmbH (https://www.infonline.de), which operates the measurement procedure, the data protection website of AGOF (http://www.agof.de/datenschutz) and the data protection website of IVW (http://www.ivw.eu).

Social plugins

The website is connected via social plugins to various social networks, namely Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

The social plugins are deactivated without your intervention and therefore no data is transmitted. For example, if you want to share content, you must first click on the respective button on the website. If you are logged into your user account on the corresponding social network, an assignment with the visit of the website only takes place after activation of the button with a renewed click of the user, e.g. with the’Share’ function.

As far as the IP address (or other data) is processed, the data is processed on the legal basis Art. 6 (1) f. DSGVO or TMG, whereby our legitimate interests (or the legitimate interests of third parties commissioned by us) of quality assurance or statistical analysis of user behaviour are pursued.

Of course, you can deactivate this function at any time and manage it on the website. If you do not want the social networks to collect data about the site, you should log out of the site before visiting it. However, if you activate the corresponding button by clicking on it, cookie(s) will still be set with an identifier each time you visit the website. Therefore, this function may be used to collect data and create a profile that may be attributed to a single person. In these cases, an automated decision making (“profiling”) takes place (see also above).

Criteria for the storage period include whether the data is still current, whether the contractual relationship with us still exists or whether an inquiry has already been processed or a process has been completed or not and whether legal retention periods for the personal data concerned are relevant or not.
