Scale of processing of personal data

We generally only process personal data of our users only as far as this is necessary to provide a functional website or our contents and services. Processing of personal data of our users shall usually only take with the user’s consent. A derogation shall apply in such cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and where processing of the data is permitted by the law.

Legal basis relating to processing of personal data

As far as we collect the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, point (a) of Article 6(1) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

For legal processing of personal data that is necessary to perform a contract of which the data subject is a party, point (b) of Article 6(1) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to perform pre-contractual measures.

As far as processing of personal data is necessary to perform a legal obligation that our company is subject to, point (c) of Article 6(1) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If any vital interests of the data subject or any other natural person require processing of personal data, point (d) of Article 6(1) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to maintain a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not override the former interest, point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

Data erasure and duration of storage

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Storage may further take place when this is stipulated by the European or national legislator in regulations under Union law, laws or other rules that the controller is subject to. Blocking or erasure of the data shall also take pace if a storage period required by the standards named expires, except if further storage of the data is required for conclusion of a contract or performance of a contract.

 Provisions on data protection for the purpose and use of Google Analytics

(with IP anonymisation function)

Description and scale of processing activities

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics is an internet analysis service. Data from visitors of the pages on the internet are collected and evaluated for the purpose of analysis. Inter alia, the following data will be collected:

  • From which website a data subject reached our website (referrers)
  • which subpages of the website are accessed
  • how often and for how long a subpage has been viewed.

Google Analytics uses “cookies”. For an explanation on cookies, see the correspondingly named section in this data protection statement. The information produced by the cookie regarding your use of this website is usually transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and stored there.

By calling up our website on which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the web browser of the data subject will automatically be caused to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. In the course of this, Google will obtain knowledge of personal data, such as the internet protocol address of the data subject, which serve, inter alia, to enable Google to track the origin of visitors and their clicks, and to permit any subsequent settlements of commission fees.

The cookie is used to store personal data, such as the access time, place from which an access took place and frequency of visits to our website by the data subject. On every visit to our websites, these personal data, including the internet protocol address of the internet connection used by the data subject, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on such personal data collected with technical procedures to third parties under certain circumstances.

IP anonymisation

We activated the function IP anonymisation on this website. This way, your internet protocol address will be abbreviated first by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the convention on the European Economic Area before transfer to the USA. Only in exceptions will your full internet protocol address be transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and abbreviated there. On behalf of the provider of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, in order to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services connected to website use and internet use towards the website operator. The internet protocol address transmitted by your browser within the context of Google Analytics will not be combined with any other Data of Google.

 

 

Purpose of processing activities

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is analysis of the visitor flows on our website. Google uses the data and information gained, inter alia, to evaluate use of our website, in order to compile online reports for us that indicate the activities on our websites and in order to render further services connected to use of our website. The data or analysis of the data shall be used mostly to optimise the website and for cost-benefits analysis of internet advertising.

Legal basis for processing activities

Google Analytics cookies are stored based on point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysis of the user behaviour in order to optimise both its web offer and its advertisement.

Processing and duration of storage

The data subject may prevent setting of cookies by our website as already presented above, at any time, by making the corresponding setting in the web browser used and thereby permanently object to setting of cookies. This setting of the web browser used would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the information-technology system of the data subject. Furthermore, a cookie already set by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via the web browser or other software programs.

Right to object and removal option

Browser Plug-In

You may prevent storage of the cookies by making the corresponding settings in your browser software; however, note that you may be unable to fully use all functions of the website in such a case. You may furthermore prevent recording of the data generated by the cookie and referring to your use of the website (incl. your internet protocol address) by Google and processing of these personal data by Google by downloading and installing the following browser plug-in: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information concerning the visitors of websites must be transmitted to Google Analytics. Google will assess installation of the browser add-on as an objection.

For further information and the applicable provisions on data protection of Google, see https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/, and https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.
