8. Privacy policy on the use and enjoyment of Facebook

The data controller has integrated Facebook components on this website. Facebook is a social network.

A social network is an Internet-based social meeting place, an online community that usually enables users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or enables the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Facebook enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friend requests, among other things.

The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc. 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. If a data subject lives outside the USA or Canada, the person responsible for processing personal data is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Facebook component to download a representation of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook. A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. As part of this technical process, Facebook obtains information about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.

If the person concerned is logged into Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes which specific page of our website the person concerned is visiting each time the person visits our website and for the entire duration of that person’s stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the person concerned. If the data subject clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated into our website, such as the “Like” button, or if the data subject comments, Facebook assigns this information to the data subject’s personal Facebook user account and stores this personal data.

Facebook receives information through the Facebook component that the individual concerned has visited our website whenever the individual concerned is logged into Facebook at the same time as accessing our website, regardless of whether the individual concerned clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the person concerned does not want this information to be transmitted to Facebook in this way, they can prevent it from being transmitted by logging out of their Facebook account before accessing our website.

Facebook’s published data policy, which is available at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains which settings Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the person concerned. In addition, different applications are available that allow to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Such applications may be used by the data subject in order to suppress the transmission of information to Facebook.

9. Privacy policy regarding the use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

The data controller has integrated the component Google Analytics (with anonymisation function) on this website.) Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data about the behavior of visitors to Internet sites. A web analysis service collects data on, among other things, from which website a person concerned has accessed a website (so-called referrers), 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 for the optimization of a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The data controller uses the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp” for the web analysis via Google Analytics. This addition is used by Google to shorten and anonymise the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned if access to our Internet pages is from a Member State of the European Union or from another Contracting State 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 obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us showing the activities on our website and to provide other services in connection with the use of our website.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. The definition of cookies is explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is able to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed 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 person concerned 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 Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission statements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may share this personal information collected through the technical process with third parties.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as 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 setting 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.

Furthermore, it is possible for the person concerned to object to and prevent the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. For this purpose, the person concerned must download and install a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout . This browser add-on tells Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about visits to Internet pages may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google as a contradiction. If the data subject’s information technology system is later deleted, formatted or reinstalled, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the person concerned or by another person within his/her sphere of control, the browser add-on can be reinstalled or reactivated.

Further information and Google’s applicable privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html Google Analytics is explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.com/intl/de_en/analytics/.

If an affected person reaches our website via a Google advertisement, Google will place a so-called conversion cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. The definition of cookies is explained above. A conversion cookie will expire after thirty days and will not be used to identify the person concerned. The conversion cookie, if the cookie has not expired, is used to determine whether certain sub-pages, such as the shopping cart from an online shop system, have been called up on our website. The conversion cookie allows both us and Google to understand whether an affected person who has reached our website via an AdWords ad has generated a sales order, i.e., has completed or canceled a purchase.

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie are used by Google to create visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are used by us in turn to determine the total number of users who have been sent to us through AdWords ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of each AdWords ad and to view our AdWords ads for the Future. Neither our company nor any other advertisers of Google AdWords will receive information from Google that could be used to identify the person concerned.

Mittels des Conversion-Cookies werden personenbezogene Informationen, beispielsweise die durch die betroffene Person besuchten Internetseiten, gespeichert. Each time you visit our web pages, personal information, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may share this personal information collected through the technical process with third parties.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as 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 setting a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the person concerned has the opportunity to object to the interest-related advertising by Google. To do this, the person concerned must access the link www.google.com/settings/ads from any of the Internet browsers they use and make the desired settings there.

Where the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, such as in the case of processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or for the rendering of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 I lit. Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, such as in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our business were injured and his name, age, health insurance information or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not predominate. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the person concerned is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).

14. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or by a third party

Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR is our legitimate interest is to conduct our business for the benefit of all our employees and shareholders.

15. The duration for which the personal data will be stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal preservation period. After expiry of this period, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted unless they are no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.

16. Legal or contractual provisions relating to the provision of personal data; the need to conclude a contract; the obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; the possible consequences of not providing the personal data

We will inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a person concerned makes personal data available to us which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data when our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract could not be concluded with the data subject. Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee informs the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of a contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what consequences the non-availability of the personal data would have.

17. Existence of an automated decision-making process

As a responsible company, we dispense with automatic decision-making or profiling.
