4. Use and application of tracking, analysis tools and social plugins
The data controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection, storage, and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to Internet sites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data on the website from which a specific person has accessed a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website have been accessed or how often and for how long a subpage has been viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and for a cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
The Google Analytics component is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The data controller uses the suffix “_gat._anonymizeIp” for the web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this suffix, Google shortens and anonymises the IP address of the internet connection of the person concerned when accessing our internet pages from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information collected to evaluate the use of our website, among other things, to compile online reports for us that show the activities on our website and to provide other services in connection with the use of our website.
Google Analytics inserts a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the affected person is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which serves Google, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission settlements.
Cookies are used to store personal information, such as access time, the location from which the access came, and the frequency of visits to our website by the person in question. Whenever you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection you have used, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.
The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as already described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the internet browser used would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.
You can prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent future collection of your data when you visit this website: Disable Google Analytics
6. Deletion, blocking and duration of the storage of personal data
We process and store your personal data only for the period of time required to achieve the respective storage purpose or as provided for by law.
After discontinuation of a storage purpose or after expiry of the storage period provided for by law, the personal data are routinely blocked or deleted for further processing in accordance with the statutory provisions.
7. Data protection rights of the data subject
If you have any questions about your personal data, you can contact us in writing at any time. You have the following rights under GDPR:
7.1 The right to information (subitem Art. 15 GDPR)
You have the right at any time to receive information about which categories and information on your personal data are processed by us for which purpose, for how long, and according to which criteria these data are stored and whether an automated decision making including profiling is applied in this context. You also have the right to know which recipients or categories of recipients your data have been or are still being disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries or international organisations. In this case you also have the right to be informed about appropriate guarantees in connection with the transmission of your personal data.
In addition to the right of appeal to the supervisory authority and the right to information about the origin of your data, you have the right to have your personal data deleted, corrected and limited or to object to the processing of your personal data.
In all the above cases, you have the right to request a free copy of your personal data processed by us from the data processor. We are entitled to charge an appropriate administration fee for all further copies that you request or that go beyond the data subject’s right to information.
7.2 The right to correction (Art. 16 GDPR)
You have the right to request the immediate correction of your incorrect personal data and, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to request the completion of incomplete personal data also by means of a supplementary declaration.
If you wish to exercise your right to rectification, you can contact our data protection officer or the data controller at any time.
7.3 The right to cancellation (Art. 17 GDPR)
You have the right to demand the immediate deletion of your data (“right to be forgotten”) especially if the storage of the data is no longer necessary, if you revoke your consent to data processing, if your data were processed unlawfully or were collected unlawfully and if there is a legal obligation to delete under EU or national law.
However, the right to be forgotten shall not apply if there is a predominant right to freedom of expression or information, if data storage is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation (e.g. storage obligations), if archiving purposes prevent deletion or if storage serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
7.4 The right to restriction (Art. 18 GDPR)
You have the right to request that the controller restrict the processing of your data if you dispute the accuracy of the data, if the processing is unlawful, if you refuse to delete your personal data and instead request that processing be restricted, if the requirements for the purpose of processing cease to apply or if you have objected to the processing in accordance with Article 21(1), as long as it is not yet clear whether there are any legitimate reasons on our part which outweigh yours.
7.5 The right to data transferability (Art. 20 GDPR)
You have the right to the transferability of your personal data, which you have provided to our company in the form of a standard format, so that you can have your personal data forwarded to another responsible person without hindrance, provided, for example, that you have given your consent and the processing is carried out using an automated procedure.
7.6 The right of objection (Art. 21 GDPR)
You have the right to object at any time to the collection, processing or use of your personal data for the purposes of direct advertising or market and opinion research as well as general business data processing, unless we can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms.
Furthermore, you cannot exercise your right of objection if a legal provision provides for the collection, processing or use of the data or obliges the collection, processing or use.
7.7 Right of appeal to the data protection supervisory authority (Art. 77 GDPR in connection with Art. 19 of the German Data Protection Act [BDSG])
You are granted the right to complain to the competent supervisory authority if you believe there has been an infringement in the processing of your personal data.
7.8 Right to revoke consent under data protection law (Art. 7 paragraph 3 GDPR)
You can revoke your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time and without giving reasons. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent given to us prior to the effective date of the EU General Data Protection Regulation.
8. Legal basis of the processing
In processing personal data for which we obtain the consent of the data subject, Art. 6 paragraph 1, sentence 1 a) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.
In processing personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1 b) (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. This regulation also covers processing operations that are necessary to carry out 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 paragraph 1, sentence 1 c) (GDPR) 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 former interest, Art. 6 paragraph 1, sentence 1 f) (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for processing. The legitimate interest of our company lies in the performance of our business activities and in the analysis, optimisation and maintenance of the security of our online offer.
9. Transfer of data to third parties
We generally do not sell or rent user data. A transmission to third parties beyond the scope described in this data protection declaration only takes place if this is necessary for processing the respective requested service.
We only transfer data if there is a legal obligation to do so. This is the case if state institutions (e.g. law enforcement authorities) request information in writing or in the event of a court order.
A transfer of personal data to so-called third countries outside the EU/EEA area does not take place.
10. Legal or contractual regulations for the provision of personal data and possible consequences of failure to provide such data
We hereby point out that in certain cases (e.g. tax regulations) the provision of personal data is prescribed by law or may result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). For example, for a contract to be concluded, it may be necessary for the person/contractual partner concerned to make his/her personal data available so that we can process his/her request (e.g. order) at all. There is an obligation to provide personal data, especially when concluding contracts. If in this case no personal data are provided, the contract cannot be concluded with the data subject. Before the data subject provides personal data, he or she may contact our data protection officer or the data controller. The data protection officer or the controller shall then inform the data subject whether the provision of personal data required is required by law or by contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract and whether the data subject’s concerns give rise to an obligation to provide the personal data or what consequences the failure to provide the data requested will have for the data subject.
11. Existence of automated decision making
As a responsible company, we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling in our business relationships.
