4. General Information On Data Processing
Personal data processing scope
As a matter of principle, we process the personal data of our users only insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a functional website as well as our content and services. The processing of our users’ personal data is regularly carried out only with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases where obtaining prior consent is not possible for factual reasons and the data processing is permitted by legal regulations.
Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, Article 6 (1) (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures. Insofar as personal processing data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis. If vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make processing of personal data necessary, Art. 6 (1) lit. d DSGVO serves as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights, and freedoms of the data subject do not override the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 (1) f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.
Data deletion and storage period
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Storage may also occur if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws, or other provisions to which the controller is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned above expires unless there is a need for further data storage for the conclusion or performance of a contract.
5. Access data
We, the website operator or page provider, collect data about access to the website based on our legitimate interests (see Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO) and store them as "server log files" on the website server. The following data is logged in this way:
Time at the time of access
Amount of data sent in bytes
Source/reference from which you came to the site
Operating system used
IP address used
The server log files are stored for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. The data is stored for security reasons, e.g., to be able to clarify cases of abuse. If data must be retained for evidentiary reasons, it is exempt from deletion until the incident has been finally clarified.
6. Reach measurement & cookies
Common browsers offer the setting option not to allow cookies. Note: It is not guaranteed that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if you make the appropriate settings.
You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on Download Page.
Collection and processing of personal data
The website operator collects, uses, and discloses your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of such data. Personal data is any information that can be used to identify you and can be traced back to you - for example, your name, e-mail address, and telephone number.
You can also visit this website without providing any personal information. However, to improve our online services, we store (without personal reference) your access data to this website. This access data includes, for example, the file you requested or the name of your Internet provider. By anonymizing the data, it is not possible to conclude your person.
7. Handling of contact data
If you contact us as the website operator through the contact options offered (e.g., by form on the website or by e-mail), your information will be stored so that it can be used to process and respond to your request.
8. Dealing with comments and contributions
Your IP address will be stored if you leave a post or comment on this website. This is done based on our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO and serves our security as website operator: If your comment violates applicable law, we can be prosecuted for it, which is why we have an interest in the identity of the comment or post author.
9. Google Analytics
Due to our legitimate interests, this website uses the "Google Analytics" service to optimize and analyze our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO is the "Google Analytics" service offered by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). The service (Google Analytics) uses "cookies" - text files that are stored on your terminal device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
Google LLC is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement: Privacy Shield.
IP anonymization is used on this website. The user's IP address is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area and in the other contracting states of the agreement. Only in individual cases is the IP address initially transmitted unabbreviated to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. This shortening eliminates the personal reference of your IP address. The user's IP address transmitted by the browser is not combined with other data stored by Google.
As part of the agreement on the order data agreement, which we as website operators have concluded with Google Inc., the latter uses the information collected to evaluate website use and website activity and provides services associated with internet use.
The data collected by Google on our behalf is used to evaluate the use of our online offering by individual users, e.g., to create reports on website activity to improve our online offering.
You have the option of preventing cookies from being stored on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. It is not guaranteed that you can access all functions of this website without restrictions if your browser does not allow cookies.
Furthermore, you can use a browser plugin to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to and used by Google Inc. The following link will take you to the corresponding plugin: Download-Seite für das Browser-Add-on zur Deaktivierung von Google Analytics.
