II. General information on data processing

1. Scope of personal data processing

As a rule, we collect and utilise our users’ personal data only if this is required to provide a functional website as well as our content and services. Personal data of our users are regularly gathered and used only on a statutory basis. One exception applies in cases in which there is no apparent statutory basis and processing of the data can only be legitimised by means of consent.

2. Legal basis for processing of personal data

If we obtain consent for processing of personal data from the data subject, point (a) of Article 6 (1) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.
In the event of processing of personal data that is required for fulfilment of a contract to which the data subject is party, point (b) of Article 6 (1) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing measures that are required in order to perform pre-contractual actions.

If processing of personal data is required in order to fulfil a legal obligation that is incumbent upon our company, point (c) of Article 6 (1) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person necessitate the processing of personal data, point (d) of Article 6 (1) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If processing is required in order to uphold a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and 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.

3. Erasure of data and period stored

The personal data of the data subject are erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Storage can additionally be carried out if the European or national legislature has made provisions for this in Union regulations, acts or other rules to which the controller is subject. Blocking or erasure of the data is also carried out if a storage period specified by the aforementioned standards expires, unless it is necessary to continue storing the data in order to conclude or fulfil a contract.

III. Provision of the website and creation of log files

1. Description and scope of data processing

Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically records data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer.
The following data are gathered here:Information on the browser type and the version used
(1) The user’s operating system
(2) The user’s IP address
(3) The data and time of access
(4) Websites from which the user’s system reaches our website
(5) Websites that are accessed by the user’s system via our website

The data are also stored in the log files of our system. These data are not stored together with other personal data of the user.

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for temporary storage of the data and log files is point (f) of Article 6 (1) GDPR.

3. Purpose of data processing

Temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary in order to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. To this end, the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session.

Storage in log files is carried out in order to ensure that the website works properly. In addition, we use the data to help us optimise the website and to ensure the security of our IT systems. No evaluation of the data for marketing purposes is performed in connection with this.

These purposes also account for our legitimate interest in data processing as per point (f) of Article 6 (1) GDPR.

4. Period saved

The data are erased as soon as they are no longer needed to fulfil the purpose for which they were gathered. In the event of data recording for provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session is ended.

In the event of data storage in log files, this is the case after no more than 365 days.
IP addresses are fully logged for a maximum of 24 hours. Thereafter, anonymisation is performed by erasing the last octet so that it is no longer possible to associate with the accessing client.

5. Option of objection and rectification

Data recording to provide the website and storage of data in log files are absolutely essential to operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

IV. Web analysis by means of Google Analytics

1. Description and scope of personal data processing

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, text files that are stored on your computer and enable analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie regarding your use of this website is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google shortens your IP address beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other countries that are signatories to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is only sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases.

Further information on conditions of use, data processing measures and data protection can be found at www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html and at support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=.

Please note that on the Google Analytics website, the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” has been added in order to ensure anonymised collection of IP addresses (IP masking).

Our website uses Google conversion tracking. If you have reached our website via an advertisement delivered by Google, a cookie is deposited on your computer by Google AdWords. The cookie for conversion tracking is deposited if a user clicks on an advert delivered by Google. These cookies become invalid after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits specific pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can detect that the user has clicked on the advert and been forwarded to this page. Every Google AdWords customer receives another cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained by means of the conversion cookies is used in preparing conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The customers find out the total number of users who have clicked on their advert and been forwarded to a site provided with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified.

If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can reject the depositing of a cookie that is required for this – for instance via a browser setting that deactivates all automatic depositing of cookies, or by configuring your browser in such a way that cookies from the domain “googleleadservices.com“ are blocked.

We use the remarketing technology of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google“). Via this technology, users who have already visited our web pages and online services and are interested in the offering are addressed again by means of targeted advertising on the pages of the Google Partners network. The advertising is displayed through the use of cookies – these are small text files that are stored on the user’s computer. By means of the text files, user behaviour while visiting the site can be analysed, and can subsequently be used for targeted product recommendations and interest-based advertising.

DoubleClick by Google is a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). DoubleClick by Google uses cookies to present you with adverts relevant to you. A pseudonymous identification number (ID) is assigned to your browser here in order to check which adverts have been displayed in your browser and which adverts have been accessed. The cookies do not contain any personal information. Use of the DoubleClick cookies only enables Google and its partner websites to deliver adverts on the basis of previous visits to our website or other websites on the internet. The information generated by the cookies is transmitted to a server in the USA by Google for evaluation and stored there. Google complies with the data protection regulations of the US Privacy Shield agreement and is registered with the Privacy Shield programme of the US Department of Commerce. The data are only transmitted to third parties by Google on the basis of statutory regulations or in the context of order data processing. Google will never combine your data with other data gathered by Google.

By using our web pages, you declare your consent to the processing by Google of the data gathered about you, and to the aforementioned manner of data processing as well as the stated purpose. You can prevent storage of cookies by configuring your browser software accordingly; however, please note that in this case, you may not be able to use all functions of our website to their full extent.

On our website, we give our users the opportunity to opt out of the analysis process. To do this, you must follow the relevant link. In this way, a further cookie is deposited on their system, telling our system not to store the user’s data. If the user erases the corresponding cookie from their own system in the meantime, they must deposit the opt-out cookie again.

In addition, to prevent the data generated by the Google Analytics cookie and relating to use of the website (including your IP address) from being sent to Google and prevent Google from processing these data, you can download and install the browser plug-in available via the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl.
