Privacy policy

Data protection at a glance

The following notices provide a simple overview of what happens to your personal data when you visit this website. Personal data is any data by which you can be personally identified. For detailed information on the subject of data protection, please refer to our privacy policy listed below this text.

Data collection on this website

Who is responsible for data collection on this website?

The data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator. You can find his contact details in the imprint of this website.

How do we collect your data?

On the one hand, your data is collected by you providing it to us. This can be, for example, data that you enter in a contact form.

Other data is collected automatically or after your consent when you visit the website by our IT systems. This is mainly technical data (e.g. internet browser, operating system or time of page view). The collection of this data takes place automatically as soon as you enter this website.

What do we use your data for?

Part of the data is collected to ensure error-free provision of the website. Other data may be used to analyze your user behavior.

What rights do you have regarding your data?

You have the right at any time to receive information free of charge about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data. You also have a right to request the correction or deletion of this data. If you have given your consent to data processing, you can revoke this consent at any time for the future. You also have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data under certain circumstances. Furthermore, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.

For this as well as for further questions on the subject of data protection, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint.

 

Third-party analytics and tools

When visiting this website, your surfing behaviour can be statistically evaluated. This is done mainly with so-called analysis programs. Detailed information on these analysis programs can be found in the following data protection declaration.

General notes and mandatory information

Data protection

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.

When you use this website, a wide range of personal data is collected. Personal data is data that can be used to identify you personally. This privacy policy explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by E-Mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Storage period

Unless a more specific storage period has been stated within this data protection declaration, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for the data processing no longer applies. If you assert a legitimate request for deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted unless we have other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g. retention periods under tax or commercial law); in the latter case, the data will be deleted after these reasons cease to apply.

Note on data transfer to the USA

Our website includes tools from companies based in the USA. If these tools are active, your personal data may be passed on to the US servers of the respective companies. We would like to point out that the USA is not a safe third country in the sense of EU data protection law. US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as a data subject being able to take legal action against this. It can therefore not be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. intelligence services) process, evaluate and permanently store your data located on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information requirements according to Art. 13 GDPR

This information is intended for customers, interested parties, suppliers and employees. Your personal data will be processed by us for the following purposes:

  • To fulfil our contractual obligations to you (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR).
  • For the performance of pre-contractual obligations (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR).
  • To respond to enquiries (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR).
  • If you have given us your consent to process your personal data for certain purposes (for example, to receive our newsletter), the data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR).
  • For the fulfilment of legal obligations to which our company is subject (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR).
  • To the extent necessary, we also process your data to protect our legitimate interests, in particular to assert legal claims and defend ourselves in legal disputes or to ensure IT security, to consult and exchange data with credit agencies to determine creditworthiness and default risks, for direct advertising and market research insofar as you have not objected to the use of your data for this purpose, for measures to manage business and further develop services and products, for measures to optimise products and sales, for measures to manage risk, to prevent or investigate criminal offences (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR).

Categories of recipients of personal data

Within our company, only those employees have access to the data who absolutely need it to perform their tasks (need-to-know principle). Individual processes and services are carried out by carefully selected service providers who are based within the EEA and who comply with data protection regulations. If service providers commissioned by us receive access to personal data when performing your services, order processing agreements have been concluded with them in accordance with Art. 28 (3) GDPR.

Duration of data storage

The data processed by us is stored for the duration of the existence and processing of the contractual relationship and in compliance with statutory retention periods. These are, in particular, retention obligations under commercial and tax law in accordance with the German Commercial Code (HGB) and the German Fiscal Code (AO). The regular retention and documentation periods are up to ten years. If there is no contractual relationship, we process the data only as long as the specific purpose requires it.

 

Your data subject rights

As a data subject, you have the following rights with regard to the personal data concerning you:

  • Right to information about the personal data processed by us.
  • The right to rectification or deletion where such data is incorrect, not up to date or has been unlawfully collected by us.
  • Right to restriction of processing if complete deletion is not possible, e.g. because we have to comply with statutory retention obligations.
  • Right to object to processing where the data processing is based on a balance of interests (the so-called legitimate interest), as described above under "Purpose of the processing". This is the case if the processing is in particular not necessary for the performance of a contract with you. When exercising your right to object, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your data as we have done.

Of course, you can also object to the processing of your personal data for advertising purposes at any time. Please send your objection to our address given in the imprint or write us an E-Mail to the address given in the imprint.

  • Right of revocation if you have given us consent to process your data. You can assert your revocation at any time without giving reasons to our company. To do so, please contact us at the address given in the imprint.
  • In addition, you have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority about the processing of your personal data by our company.

If you have any questions regarding data protection, please contact us by E-Mail at the address given in the imprint.

Who gets my data?

We only pass on your personal data that we process on our website to third parties if this is necessary for the fulfilment of the purposes and is covered by the legal basis in the individual case (e.g. consent or safeguarding legitimate interests). In addition, we pass on personal data to third parties in individual cases if this serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. Possible recipients may then be, for example, law enforcement agencies, lawyers, auditors, courts, etc.

Insofar as we use service providers for the operation of our website who process personal data on our behalf within the scope of commissioned processing pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR, they may be recipients of your personal data. For more information on the use of processors and web services, please refer to the overview of the individual processing operations.

 

Do you use cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are sent by us to the browser of your end device when you visit our website and stored there. As an alternative to the use of cookies, information can also be stored in the local storage of your browser. Some functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies or local storage (technically necessary cookies). Other cookies, however, enable us to perform various analyses, so that we are able, for example, to recognise the browser you are using when you visit our website again and to transmit various information to us (non-essential cookies). With the help of cookies, we can, among other things, make our website more user-friendly and effective for you, for example by tracking your use of our website and determining your preferred settings (e.g. country and language settings). If third parties process information via cookies, they collect the information directly from your browser. Cookies do not cause any damage to your end device. They cannot execute programs or contain viruses.

We provide information about the respective services for which we use cookies in the individual processing operations. Detailed information on the cookies used can be found in the cookie settings or in the Consent Manager of this website.

Your rights

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)

If data processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (e) or (f) GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time on grounds relating to your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this privacy policy. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data concerned unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims (objection under Article 21(1) GDPR).

If your personal data is processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for the purpose of direct marketing (objection pursuant to Art. 21 (2) GDPR).

Right of appeal ­to the competent supervisory authority

In the event of breaches of the GDPR, data subjects shall have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged breach. The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible party, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.

Information, deletion and correction

You have, within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, a right to correction or deletion of this data. For this purpose as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint.

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. To do this, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the review, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data was/is unlawful, you may request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
  • If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or enforce legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
  • If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR, a balancing of your and our interests must be carried out. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, such data may - apart from being stored - only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

How is my data processed in detail?

In the following, we inform you about the individual processing operations, the scope and purpose of the data processing, the legal basis, the obligation to provide your data and the respective storage period. An automated decision in individual cases, including profiling, does not take place.

 

 

Provision of the website

In the following, we inform you about the individual processing operations, the scope and purpose of the data processing, the legal basis, the obligation to provide your data and the respective storage period. An automated decision in individual cases, including profiling, does not take place.

 

External hosting

This website is hosted by an external service provider (hoster). The personal data collected on this website is stored on the hoster's servers. This may include IP addresses, contact requests, meta and communication data, contract data, contact data, names, website accesses and other data generated via a website.

The hoster is used for the purpose of fulfilling contracts with our potential and existing customers (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR) and in the interest of a secure, fast and efficient provision of our online offer by a professional provider (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR).

Our hoster will only process your data to the extent that this is necessary for the fulfilment of its service obligations and will follow our instructions with regard to this data.

We use the following hoster:

Websmart GmbH & Co. KG
Fürst-Leopold-Platz 1
46284 Dorsten

Conclusion of a contract on order processing

To ensure data protection-compliant processing, we have concluded a contract on order processing with our hoster.

Type and scope of processing

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

  • (Anonymized) IP address
  • Date and time of the call of our web page
  • Time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Content of the request (concrete page)
  • Access status / HTTP status code
  • Data volume transferred in each case
  • Web page from which the request comes
  • Browser
  • Operating system used and its interface
  • Language and version of the browser software

This data is not merged with other data sources.

The collection of this data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimisation of his website - for this purpose, the server log files must be collected.

 

Contact form

If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR) if this has been requested.

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

 

Inquiry by E-Mail, telephone or fax

If you contact us by E-Mail, telephone or fax, your enquiry including all personal data arising from it (name, enquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR) if this has been requested.

The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after processing your request has been completed). Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular statutory retention periods - remain unaffected.

 

Contact form for applicants

Handling of applicant data

We offer you the opportunity to apply to us (e.g. by E-Mail, post or via the online application form). In the following, we inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected during the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data will be carried out in accordance with applicable data protection law and all other statutory provisions and that your data will be treated in strict confidence.

Scope and purpose of data collection

If you send us an application, we process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes taken during interviews, etc.) to the extent that this is necessary to decide whether to establish an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG-neu according to German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR (general contract initiation) and - if you have given your consent - Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. The consent can be revoked at any time. Your personal data will only be passed on within our company to persons who are involved in processing your application.

If the application is successful, the data submitted by you will be stored in our data processing systems on the basis of § 26 BDSG-neu and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship.

Data retention period

If we are unable to make you a job offer, if you reject a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to retain the data you have provided on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) for up to 6 months from the termination of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of the application). The data will then be deleted and the physical application documents destroyed. This storage serves in particular as evidence in the event of a legal dispute. If it is evident that the data will be required after the expiry of the 6-month period (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), the data will only be deleted when the purpose for further storage no longer applies.

A longer storage can also take place if you have given a corresponding consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) or if legal storage obligations oppose the deletion.

Inclusion in the applicant pool

If we do not make you a job offer, it may be possible to include you in our applicant pool. If you are accepted, all documents and details from your application will be transferred to the applicant pool so that we can contact you in the event of suitable vacancies.

Inclusion in the applicant pool takes place exclusively on the basis of your explicit consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). The provision of consent is voluntary and is not related to the current application process. The person concerned can revoke his/her consent at any time. In this case, the data will be irrevocably deleted from the applicant pool, unless there are legal reasons for retention.

The data from the applicant pool will be irrevocably deleted no later than two years after consent has been given.

Prescreen

The data transmitted as part of your application will be transferred via TLS encryption and stored in a database. This database is operated by Prescreen International GmbH, Mariahilfer Straße 17, 1060 Vienna, Austria, which offers personnel administration and applicant management software. In this context, Prescreen is our processor according to Art. 28 GDPR. The basis for the processing here is a contract for commissioned processing between us as the controller and Prescreen. You can find more information on data processing by Prescreen at https://prescreen.io/de/datenschutzerklaerung/.

 

Newsletter

Newsletter data

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an E-Mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified E-Mail address and agree to receive the newsletter. Further data will not be collected or will only be collected on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.

The processing of the data entered in the newsletter registration form is based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the E-Mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data you provide for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from the newsletter distribution list after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data that has been stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this.

After you have unsubscribed from the newsletter distribution list, your E-Mail address will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider in a blacklist, if necessary, in order to prevent future mailings. The data from the blacklist will only be used for this purpose and will not be merged with other data. This serves both your interest and our interest in complying with the legal requirements for sending newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) f GDPR). The storage in the blacklist is not limited in time. You can object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest.

MailChimp

This website uses the services of MailChimp for sending newsletters. The provider is Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.

MailChimp is a service with which, among other things, the sending of newsletters can be organized and analyzed. If you enter data for the purpose of receiving newsletters (e.g. E-Mail address), this data will be stored on MailChimp's servers in the USA.

With the help of MailChimp, we can analyze our newsletter campaigns. When you open an E-Mail sent with MailChimp, a file contained in the E-Mail (so-called web beacon) connects to MailChimp's servers in the USA. This makes it possible to determine whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links, if any, have been clicked on. In addition, technical information is recorded (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system). This information cannot be assigned to the respective newsletter recipient. It is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients.

If you do not want any analysis by MailChimp, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message.

The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data you provide for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from the newsletter distribution list after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data that has been stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this.

The data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. Details can be found here: https://mailchimp.com/eu-us-data-transfer-statement/ and https://mailchimp.com/legal/data-processing-addendum/#Annex_C_-_Standard_Contractual_Clauses.

After you have unsubscribed from the newsletter distribution list, your E-Mail address will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider in a blacklist, if necessary, in order to prevent future mailings. The data from the blacklist will only be used for this purpose and will not be merged with other data. This serves both your interest and our interest in complying with the legal requirements for sending newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) f GDPR). The storage in the blacklist is not limited in time. You can object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest.

For more details, please see MailChimp's privacy policy at: https://mailchimp.com/legal/terms/.

Conclusion of a data processing agreement

We have concluded a so-called "data processing agreement" with MailChimp, in which we oblige MailChimp to protect our customers' data and not to pass it on to third parties.

 

Presence on social media platforms

Data processing through social networks

We maintain publicly accessible profiles on social networks. The social networks used by us in detail can be found below.

Social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, etc. can generally analyse your user behaviour comprehensively when you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. like buttons or advertising banners). Visiting our social media presences triggers numerous processing operations relevant to data protection. In detail:

If you are logged into your social media account and visit our social media presence, the operator of the social media portal can assign this visit to your user account. However, your personal data may also be collected under certain circumstances if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, this data collection takes place, for example, via cookies that are stored on your terminal device or by recording your IP address.

With the help of the data collected in this way, the operators of the social media portals can create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. In this way, you can be shown interest-based advertising inside and outside the respective social media presence. If you have an account with the respective social network, the interest-based advertising can be displayed on all devices on which you are or were logged in.

Please also note that we cannot track all processing operations on the social media portals. Depending on the provider, further processing procedures may therefore be carried out by the operators of the social media portals. For details, please refer to the terms of use and data protection provisions of the respective social media portals.

Legal basis

Our social media presences are intended to ensure the most comprehensive presence possible on the Internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may be based on different legal bases, which are to be specified by the operators of the social networks (e.g. consent within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR).

Responsible party and assertion of rights

If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g. Facebook), we are jointly responsible with the operator of the social media platform for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. In principle, you can assert your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability and complaint) both against us and against the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. against Facebook).

Please note that despite the joint responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full influence on the data processing operations of the social media portals. Our options are largely determined by the corporate policy of the respective provider.

Storage period

The data collected directly by us via the social media presence will be deleted from our systems as soon as the purpose for storing it no longer applies, you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies. Stored cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them. Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

We have no influence on the storage period of your data, which is stored by the operators of the social networks for their own purposes. For details, please contact the operators of the social networks directly (e.g. in their privacy policy, see below).

Facebook page

We have a profile on Facebook. The provider of this service is Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. According to Facebook, the data collected is also transferred to the USA and other third countries.

We have entered into a Joint Processing Agreement (Controller Addendum) with Facebook. This agreement specifies which data processing operations we or Facebook are responsible for when you visit our Facebook page. You can view this agreement at the following link: https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum.

You can adjust your advertising settings independently in your user account. To do so, click on the following link and log in: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads.

For details, please refer to Facebook's privacy policy (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/) and terms and conditions: https://de-de.facebook.com/terms.

LinkedIn page

We have a profile on LinkedIn. The provider is LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland. LinkedIn uses advertising cookies.

If you would like to disable LinkedIn advertising cookies, please use the following link: https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls/retargeting-opt-out.

For details on how they handle your personal data, please see LinkedIn's privacy policy: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy.

Google Analytics

Type and scope of processing

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google Analytics enables the website operator to analyse the behaviour of website visitors. In doing so, the website operator receives various usage data, such as page views, length of stay, operating systems used and the origin of the user. This data may be summarised by Google in a profile that is assigned to the respective user or their end device.

Google Analytics uses technologies that enable the recognition of the user for the purpose of analysing user behaviour (e.g. cookies or device fingerprinting). The information collected by Google about the use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Purpose and legal basis

The use of this analysis tool is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising. If a corresponding consent has been requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time. Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. Details can be found here: https://privacy.google.com/businesses/controllerterms/mccs/.

IP anonymization

We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This means that your IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

Browser Plugin

You can prevent the collection and processing of your data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

For more information on how Google Analytics handles user data, please see Google's privacy policy: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.

For details, please see the following link: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7667196?hl=de.

 

Google DoubleClick

Nature and scope of processing

We have integrated components of DoubleClick by Google on our website. DoubleClick is a brand of Google, under which mainly special online marketing solutions are marketed to advertising agencies and publishers. DoubleClick by Google transmits data to the DoubleClick server with each impression as well as with clicks or other activities.

Each of these data transfers triggers a cookie request to the browser of the data subject. If the browser accepts this request, DoubleClick sets a cookie in your browser.

DoubleClick uses a cookie ID that is required for the technical process. The cookie ID is needed, for example, to display an ad in a browser. DoubleClick can also use the cookie ID to record which advertisements have already been displayed in a browser in order to avoid duplicate placements. Furthermore, the cookie ID enables DoubleClick to record conversions. Conversions are recorded, for example, when a DoubleClick ad has previously been displayed to a user and the user subsequently makes a purchase on the advertiser's website using the same internet browser.

A DoubleClick cookie does not contain any personal data, but may contain additional campaign identifiers. A campaign identifier serves to identify the campaigns with which you have already been in contact on other websites. As part of this service, Google learns about data that Google also uses to generate commission statements. Among other things, Google can track that you have clicked on certain links on our website. In this case, your data will be passed on to the operator of DoubleClick, Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Further information and the applicable privacy policy of DoubleClick by Google can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy.

Purpose and legal basis

Google DoubleClick is used in the interest of targeted advertising measures. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. If a corresponding consent has been requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 (1) a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

Storage period

The specific storage period of the processed data cannot be influenced by us, but is determined by Google Ireland Limited. For further information on how to object to the advertisements displayed by Google, please refer to the following links: https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads and https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated.

 

Google Fonts

Type and scope of processing

This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

For this purpose, the browser you use must connect to Google's servers. This enables Google to know that this website has been accessed via your IP address. If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer.

Purpose and legal basis

The use of Google WebFonts is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the uniform presentation of the typeface on his website. If a corresponding consent has been requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

For further information on the collection, processing and use of your personal data when visiting our website and on your rights in this regard, please refer to our privacy policy.

  • A. What are cookies?
    Cookies are small text files that are sent to your browser by our web server when you visit our website and are stored by the browser on your computer or mobile device for a certain period of time and kept for later retrieval. In addition to the technical functionality of the website, cookies also serve to determine the frequency of use and number of users as well as to analyse the behaviour of our website use and to make our website presence more user-friendly overall.
  • B. How do we use cookies?
    We may store cookies on your device if they are technically necessary for the operation of this website (so-called "necessary cookies").
    For all other cookie types, we require your consent. This applies, for example, to cookies that enable an analysis of surfing behaviour. Other cookies originating from third-party providers may also be used for your tracking by the third-party provider when you go to other websites that use services of this third party.

    By making the appropriate settings in your browser, you can determine yourself whether cookies may be set and retrieved by us. If you do not wish this, you can deactivate the storage of cookies in your browser, restrict the setting of cookies to selected websites or make settings in your browser so that you are automatically notified as soon as a cookie is to be set.

II. Third-party cookies

If you give your consent, we use the third-party cookies described below, some of which are for marketing, tracking and analysis purposes.

If data is transferred to third countries in which the GDPR does not apply without an adequacy decision by the EU Commission pursuant to Art. 45 (3) GDPR (= countries without an adequate level of data protection) or without appropriate guarantees pursuant to Art. 46 GDPR (= guarantee that the data of the data subjects are nevertheless protected and that they can effectively enforce their rights), we refer to the exceptions of Art. 49 GDPR. If the use of the respective services is necessary because there are currently no comparable services for e.g. video solutions and the presentation of our services serves the purpose of initiating a contract, Art. 49 (1) lit. b) GDPR is the legal basis. In addition, various services, in particular also tools integrated via cookies, are only integrated after the express consent of the data subject within the meaning of Art. 49 (1) a) GDPR. This is usually done by activating the corresponding services in the cookie banner. We would like to point out that this data transfer to such a third country may be associated with a risk for the data subject that he or she can neither influence the processing or storage of his or her personal data, nor can he or she enforce his or her rights as a data subject regarding this data processing as guaranteed in the GDPR.

Google Analytics

  1. Our website uses Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
  2. Google Analytics sets cookies to enable an analysis of your use of our website. Google points out to operate servers all over the world, especially in the United States of America. We can therefore not exclude that the information generated by cookies is transferred to a server outside the EU and stored there, such as Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 (USA). Google guarantees in any case to comply with European data protection law. Insofar as Google transfers data to third countries without an adequacy decision by the EU Commission, Google refers to the use of standard contractual clauses to ensure adequate protection of EU citizens' data.

    The Google Analytics cookie is only activated if you agree to this via opt-in in the cookie banner. When using Google Analytics, this is therefore done on the basis of your express consent and information about the risks associated with any transfer to third countries. In this regard, we would like to point out the risks that exist according to our information (no guarantee of completeness): US authorities can gain access to cloud storage for law enforcement purposes on the basis of the Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986 (ECPA) without judicial review. In addition, US intelligence agencies can access cloud storage for counterterrorism purposes based on the USA PATRIOT Act.
    Insofar as data is transferred to other third countries without an adequacy decision by the EU Commission, we would like to point out that this data transfer may be associated with a risk for you that you can neither influence the processing or storage of your personal data nor enforce your rights as a data subject with regard to this data processing as guaranteed in the GDPR.
  3. We would like to point out that our website has extended Google Analytics by the code "anonymizeIp" in order to ensure anonymized collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). By activating IP anonymization on our website, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA). Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
