Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data which consists in using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to evaluate aspects relating to work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or change of location of this natural person.

 

 

Pseudonymization

Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

 

 

Person in authority or person responsible for the processing

The person in authority or the person responsible for the processing is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or similar, who alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the Person in authority or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for under Union or Member State law.

General information on data processing

Scope of the processing of personal data

As a matter of principle, we collect and use personal data of our users only to the extent that this is necessary for the provision of a functional website and our content and services. The collection and use of personal data of our users is only carried out with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases where it is not possible to obtain prior consent for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

 

 

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Provided we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. 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.

Provided the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of 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 it necessary to process personal data, 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 former interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.

 

 

Data deletion and storage duration

The personal data of the person in question shall be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Storing may also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject.

Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need to continue storing the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

 

 

Technical and organizational measures

To ensure that personal data cannot be read, copied, changed or removed by unauthorized persons during electronic transmission, transport or storage on data carriers, we use a state-of-the-art encryption process in accordance with Art. 9 of the German Data Protection Act (DSGVO).1

This site uses for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests,

that you send to our system, a TLS encryption (Transport Layer Security). Data that you transmit to our system can not be read by third parties without further ado.

You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the browser address bar changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser bar.

Google Analytics

Scope of the processing of personal data

Based on our legitimate interests, we use the web analytics service Google Anayltics of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, (“Google”). The use is made to analyze the surfing behavior of our users.

Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the online offer by the user is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. By each call of one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the person responsible and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused 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 data subject, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission calculations.

By means of the cookie, personal information, for example the access time, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject, is stored. Each time the data subject visits our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, 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 pass on this personal data collected via the technical procedure to third parties.

If individual pages of our website are called up, the following data will be

Saved:

  • Two bytes of the IP address of the user’s calling system.
  • The accessed web page
  • The website from which the user has reached the accessed website (referrer)
  • The subpages that are called from the called web page
  • The time spent on the website
  • The frequency of access to the website

Google accepts the EU standard contractual clauses and thereby offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law.

Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online offer by users, to compile reports on the activities within this online offer and to provide us with other services related to the use of this online offer and the Internet. In doing so, pseudonymous usage profiles of the users can be created from the processed data.

The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser is not merged with other data from Google.

We use Google Analytics to display ads served through advertising services provided by Google and its partners only to users who have also shown an interest in our online offering or who have certain characteristics (e.g., interests in certain topics or products, as determined by the web pages visited).

), which we transmit to Google (so-called.

“Remarketing Audiences”, or “Google Analytics Audiences”). With the help of Remarketing Audiences, we also want to ensure that our ads correspond to the potential interest of users and do not have a harassing effect.

We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymization activated. This means that the IP address of the user is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

 

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

The legal basis for the processing of the users’ personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

 

Purpose of data processing

The processing of the users’ personal data enables us to analyze the surfing behavior of our users. By evaluating the data obtained, we are able to compile information about the use of the individual components of our website. This helps us to continuously improve our website and its user-friendliness. In these purposes also lies our legitimate interest in the processing of data according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

By anonymizing the IP address, the interest of users in their personal data protection is sufficiently taken into account.

 

Duration of storage

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for our recording purposes.

In our case, this is the case after 7 days.

 

Possibility of objection and removal

Cookies are stored on the user’s computer and transmitted from it to our site and Google. Therefore, you as a user also have full control over the use of cookies. By changing the settings in your Internet browser, you can disable or restrict the transmission of cookies. Cookies that have already been stored can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may no longer be possible to use all functions of the website in full.

Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; users can also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the online offer to Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading the browser plug-in available under the following link and

Install: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

This browser plugin tells Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about website visits may be transmitted to Google Analytics.

The installation of the browser plugin is considered by Google as an objection. If the information technology system of the data subject is later

deleted, formatted or reinstalled, the data subject must reinstall the browser plug-in in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the data subject or another person within his or her sphere of control, it is possible to reinstall or reactivate the browser plug-in.

You can find out more information about data use by Google, setting and objection options on the websites of

Google: https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners (“Data usage by Google when you use websites or apps of our

Partner”), http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads (“Data usage for Advertising Purposes”), http://www.google.de/settings/ads  (“Manage information that Google uses to serve ads to you”).

 

Google Re/Marketing Services

Description and scope of data processing

We use the marketing and remarketing services (in short “Google Marketing Services”) of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, (“Google”) on the basis of our legitimate interests.

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and thereby offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5A AI&status=Active).

Google’s marketing services allow us to display advertisements for and on our website in a more targeted manner in order to present users only with ads that potentially match their interests. If, for example, a user is shown ads for products he or she was interested in on other websites, this is referred to as “remarketing”. For these purposes, when our website and other websites on which Google marketing services are active are called up, a code is executed directly by Google and so-called (re)marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also known as

“Web Beacons”) are integrated into the website. With their help, an individual cookie, i.e. a small file, is stored on the user’s device (comparable technologies can also be used instead of cookies). The cookies can be set by various domains, including google.com, doubleclick.net, invitemedia.com, admeld.com, googlesyndication.com or googleadservices.com. This file records which websites the user has visited, which content he is interested in and which offers he has clicked on, as well as technical information on the browser and operating system, referring websites, time of visit and other information on the use of the online offer. The IP address of the user is also recorded, whereby we inform Google Analytics that the IP address is shortened within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area and only in exceptional cases is transferred in full to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address will not be merged with data of the user within other offers of Google. The aforementioned information may also be combined on the part of Google with such information from other sources. If

the user subsequently visits other websites, he or she can be shown ads tailored to his or her interests.

User data is processed pseudonymously as part of Google’s marketing services. This means that Google does not store and process the name or e-mail address of the user, for example, but processes the relevant data on a cookie basis within pseudonymous user profiles. I.e. from Google’s perspective, the ads are not managed and displayed for a specifically identified person, but for the cookie holder, regardless of who this cookie holder is. This does not apply if a user has expressly allowed Google to process the data without this pseudonymization. The information collected by Google marketing services about users is transmitted to Google and stored on Google’s servers in the USA.

The Google marketing services we use include.

among others, the online advertising program “Google AdWords”. In the case of

Google AdWords, each AdWords customer receives a different

“Conversion cookie”. Cookies can thus not be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained using the cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. AdWords customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to identify users personally.

We may, on the basis of the Google marketing service

“DoubleClick” embed third party advertisements. DoubleClick

uses cookies to enable Google and its partner websites to serve ads based on users’ visits to this website or other websites on the Internet.

We may, on the basis of the Google marketing service

“AdSense” embed third-party advertisements. AdSense uses cookies that enable Google and its partner websites to display ads based on users’ visits to this website or other websites on the Internet. By each call of one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the person responsible and on which a Google AdSense component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective Google AdSense component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online advertising and billing of commissions.

As part of this technical process, Google receives

Knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission calculations.

Google AdSense also uses so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in Internet pages to enable log file recording and log file analysis, whereby a statistical evaluation can be performed. By means of the embedded tracking pixel, Google can see whether and when a web page was opened by a data subject and which links were clicked by the data subject. Among other things, tracking pixels are used to evaluate the flow of visitors to a website.

For more information about Google AdSense, visit https://www.google.de/intl/de/adsense/start/.

We may also use the “Google Optimizer” service. Google Optimizer allows us to track the effects of various changes to a website (e.g. changes to the input fields, design, etc.) as part of so-called “A/B testing”. For these testing purposes, cookies are placed on users’ devices. Only pseudonymous user data is processed.

Furthermore, we may use the “Google Tag Manager” to integrate and manage Google analytics and marketing services on our website.

Google Fonts

Scope of the processing of personal data

We use the Google Fonts service of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, (“Google”) based on our legitimate interests.

Google Fonts provides an intuitive and robust directory of open source designer web fonts. With an extensive catalog, typography can be seamlessly incorporated and integrated into any design project.

The service is used to integrate fonts (web fonts) on our web pages. The integration of Google Fonts is done by a server call at Google, regularly via the URL https://fonts.google.com. The fonts come from various designers and are open source.

When users call up our online offer, a request is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored and processed there.

Technically, the fonts embedded in our Internet presence are stored on a Google server and then sent to the

Page request loaded from there. By using Google Fonts, Google’s servers send appropriate file to each user based on the technologies supported by the user’s browser.

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and thereby offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5A AI&status=Active).

The connection to Google Fonts is not authenticated. When visiting our online presence, no cookies or login information are sent to Google via the Google Fonts service. Corresponding requests to the servers of the Google Fonts service are made to resource-specific domains such as fonts.googleapis.com or fonts.gstatic.com, so that requests for fonts are basically separate from login information that is otherwise sent to domains of Google, for example google.com or google.de, and may be authenticated.

Google Fonts logs records of CSS and font file requests. Google assigns aggregate usage numbers to how popular font families are for statistical purposes and publishes these results on an Analytics page (https://fonts.google.com/analytics).

More information about the Google Fonts service can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq.

 

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

The legal basis for the processing of the users’ personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

 

Purpose of data processing

The data processing is carried out in the interest of the analysis, optimization and economic operation of the online offer in order to integrate content or service offers of third-party providers or their content and services.

We use Google Fonts to design our website independently of the fonts installed on the user’s computer, the so-called system fonts, and to ensure a consistent display image on different systems.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google can be found in the privacy policy of Google

at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

 

Duration of storage

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for our recording purposes.

Google Maps

Scope of the processing of personal data

Based on our legitimate interests, we use the Google Maps service of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, (“Google”).

Google Maps is an online map service from Google. The earth’s surface can be viewed as a street map or as an aerial or satellite image.

The service is used to integrate map data on our website. The integration of Google Maps is done by a server call at Google via an interface, the Google Maps API.

When a page of our online offer is called up in which a corresponding map section has been integrated, a request is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored and processed there. By using Google Maps, the Google servers send corresponding data to the user’s browser to display the map material.

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and thereby offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5A AI&status=Active).
