Data Protection Policy

Notice on Data Processing

Data protection is very important to our company. It goes without saying that we observe the relevant statutory provisions on data protection and in particular the Basic Data Protection Ordinance (hereinafter: DSGVO) in all data processing procedures (e.g., collection, processing and transmission). The following declaration provides you with an overview of what type of personal data is collected, how this data is used and (if at all) passed on, on what legal basis this is done, what security measures we take to protect your data, and what rights you have as a data subject.

III. General Information on Data Processing

1. Scope of the Processing of Personal Data

We process personal data of our users only to the extent that this is necessary to provide a functional website as well as our contents and services. The processing of our users' personal data is only carried out regularly with the user's consent. An exception applies in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for justifiable reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

2. Legal Basis for the Processing of Personal Data

Below, we announce the legal basis for data processing. Insofar as the processing of personal data is based on the consent of the data subject, Art. 6(1) letter a DSGVO serves as the legal basis. In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, the legal basis is Art. 6(1) letter b DSGVO. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6(1) letter c DSGVO serves as the legal basis. If processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-named interest, the legal basis for processing lies in Art. 6(1) letter f DSGVO.

3. Deletion of Data and Duration of Storage

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the Data Controller is subject. The 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 fulfilment of a contract.

IV. Provision of the Website and Creation of Logfiles

1. Description and Scope of Data Processing

Every time you visit our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing 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 reaches our website
(7) websites accessed by the user's system via our website
(8) subsites accessed by the user's system on our website

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

2. Legal Basis for Data Processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6(1) letter f DSGVO.

3. Purpose of 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 the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.

The data is stored in logfiles to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data serves 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.

Our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6(1) letter f DSGVO is also based on these purposes.

4. Duration of Storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve 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 logfiles, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Further storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an attribution to the accessing client is no longer possible.

5. Possibility of Objection and Removal

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in logfiles is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

V. Use of Cookies

1. Description and Scope of Data Processing

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in the internet browser or by the internet browser on the user's computer system. If a user visits a website, a cookie may be stored on the user's operating system.

This cookie contains a typical character string that enables a unique identification of the browser when the website is called up again. We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some elements contained herein require that the accessing browser can be identified even after a page change.

The following data can be stored and transmitted in the cookies:

(1) language settings
(2) log-in information

We also use cookies on our website which enable an analysis of the user's surfing behaviour. In this way, the following data can be transmitted:

(1) entered search terms
(2) frequency of page views
(3) use of website functions

Appropriate technical precautions are taken to pseudonymise the user data collected in this way so that it is no longer possible to attribute the data to the user calling up the website. In particular, the data will not be stored together with other personal data of the users of our website.

When you visit our website, an information banner informs you about the use of cookies and refers you to this data protection statement. In this context, it is also pointed out that there is an option of deletion in this respect.

2. Legal Basis for Data Processing

The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies is Art. 6(1) letter f DSGVO.

For the processing of personal data using cookies used for analytical purposes, the legal basis involves the presence of the user's consent in this regard in Art. 6(1) letter a DSGVO.

3. Purpose of Data Processing

The purpose of using technically necessary cookies is to simplify the use of internet pages for users. Some functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. In this case it is necessary for the browser to be recognised even after a page change.

We need cookies for the following applications:

(1) accepting language settings
(2) remembering search terms

The analysis cookies are used to improve the quality of our website and its content. Through the analysis cookies we learn how the website is used and can thus continuously optimise our offer.

For these purposes, our legitimate interest is also based on the processing of personal data in accordance with Art. 6(1) letter f DSGVO.

4. Duration of Storage, Possibility of Objection and Removal

Cookies are stored on the user's computer and transmitted from there to our website. As a user, you therefore have full control over the use of cookies. You can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies at any time by changing the settings in your internet browser. It is also possible at any time to delete cookies that have already been saved. This can also be done automatically. However, if cookies for our website are deactivated, it is possible that not all functions of our website can be used to their full capacity.

5. The following additional information is provided on the individual analysis services:

We also use the following analysis tools:

Google Analytics

Our website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. Provider of the web analysis service is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses "cookies", the technical significance of which has already been explained. Information generated by cookies about your use of our website is transmitted to a Google server and stored there. Server location is usually the USA.

Google Analytics cookies are set on the basis of Art. 6(1) letter f DSGVO. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise our website and, where applicable, our advertising.

IP anonymisation

We use Google Analytics in conjunction with IP anonymisation. It ensures that Google shortens your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the USA. There may be exceptional cases where Google may pass the full IP address to a server in the USA and shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to create reports on website activity and to provide us with other services relating to website and internet use. The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

Browser plug-in

The setting of cookies by your web browser is preventable. However, some functions of our website may be restricted by that prevention. You may also opt out of the collection of information about your use of the website, including your IP address and subsequent processing by Google. This is possible by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en .

Objection to data collection

You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is then set which prevents the collection of your data on future visits to our website: Disable Google Analytics.

Details on how Google Analytics handles user data can be found in Google's privacy policy: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en .

Order processing

To fully comply with legal data protection requirements, we have concluded an order processing agreement with Google.

Demographic Features by Google Analytics

Our website uses the "demographic features" function of Google Analytics. It can be used to create reports that contain information on the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-related advertising by Google and from visitor data from third-party providers. It is not possible to attribute the data to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time. You can do this through the ad settings in your Google Account or by generally prohibiting Google Analytics from collecting your information, as explained in "Opt-out of data collection".

Google AdSense

Our website uses Google AdSense. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google AdSense serves the integration of advertisements and sets cookies. Cookies are small text files, as already described above. Google AdSense also uses "web beacons". Web beacons are invisible graphics that enable an analysis of visitor traffic on our website.

Information generated by cookies and web beacons is transmitted to and stored by Google on servers. Server location is the USA. Google may share this information with third parties. However, Google will not merge your IP address with other data stored regarding you.

AdSense cookies are stored in accordance with Art. 6(1) letter f DSGVO. We as website operators have a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise our website and our advertising.

With a modern web browser you can monitor, restrict and prevent the setting of cookies. Deactivation of cookies may result in limited functionality of our website. By using our website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking

Our website uses Google AdWords. Provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States.

AdWords is an online advertising program. As part of the online advertising program, we work with conversion tracking. After a click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files, as already described above. Google AdWords cookies expire after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. The cookie enables Google and us to recognise that you clicked on an ad and were redirected to our website.

Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies are not trackable through AdWords customer websites. Conversion cookies are used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who use conversion tracking. Adwords customers can see how many users clicked on their ad and were redirected to pages with a conversion tracking tag. However, AdWords customers do not receive any information that enables personal identification of users. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can object to its use. In this case the conversion cookie must be deactivated in the user settings of the browser. When this is done no inclusion in the conversion tracking statistics takes place.

Conversion cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6(1) letter f DSGVO. We as website operators have a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise our website and our advertising.

Details on Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking can be found in Google's privacy policy: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/ .

You can use a modern web browser to monitor, restrict or prevent the setting of cookies. Deactivation of cookies may result in limited functionality of our website.

(1) to exercise freedom of expression and information;

You have the right to be informed by the Data Controller about such recipients.

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the Data Controller and to receive it in a structured, standard and machine-readable format.

(1) processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6(1) letter a DSGVO or Art. 9(2) letter a DSGVO or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6(1) letter b DSGVO and
(2) processing is carried out by means of automated methods.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to request that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly from one Data Controller to another Data Controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons may not be affected by this.

The right to transferability shall not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the Data Controller.

7. Right of Objection

You have the right to object at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation to the processing of your personal data in accordance with Art. 6(1) letter e or f DSGVO.

The Data Controller will no longer process the personal data concerning you, unless he can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing, which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If the personal data concerning you is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of the personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising.

If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.

You have the option to exercise your right of objection in connection with the use of Information Society services by means of automated procedures using technical specifications, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.

8. Right to Revocation of the Data Protection Declaration of Consent

You have the right to revoke your data protection declaration of consent at any time. The revocation of consent shall not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.

9. Right of Appeal to a Supervisory Authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State where you reside or work or in the location where the infringement is suspected to have taken place, if you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you is contrary to the DSGVO.

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