Data processing through the use of our website with cookies

(1) Like many other websites, we also use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard drive and assigned to the browser you are using and through which certain information flows to the place that sets the cookie (here from us). Cookies cannot run programs or transmit viruses to your computer. They serve to make the website more user-friendly and effective overall and to enable the use of certain functions. When using these general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is required to deliver the content of our website correctly. We therefore evaluate this data and information statistically on the one hand and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. Insofar as personal data is also processed by individual cookies implemented by us, the processing takes place in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit She.

(2) This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and functionality of which are explained below:

– Transient Cookies (s.a)
– Persistent Cookies (s.b)
– Flash Cookies (s.c)

a) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include in particular the session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the joint session. This allows your computer to be recognized when you return to our website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.

b) Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period, which can vary depending on the cookie. These cookies remain on your end device and enable us or our partner companies (third-party cookies) to recognize your browser on your next visit. You can delete the cookies in the browser settings of your browser at any time.

c) The Flash cookies used are not recorded by your browser, but by your Flash plug-in. HTML5 storage objects are also stored on your end device. These objects store the required data independently of the browser you are using and do not have an automatic expiry date. If you do not wish the Flash cookies to be processed, you must install an appropriate add-on, e.g. B. “Better Privacy” for Mozilla Firefox (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/betterprivacy/) or the Adobe Flash Killer cookie for Google Chrome. You can prevent the use of HTML5 storageobjects by using private mode in your browser. We also recommend manually deleting your cookies and browser history on a regular basis.

Other functions and offers of our website

(1) In addition to the purely informational use of our website, we offer various services that you can use if you are interested. To do this, you usually have to provide additional personal data that we use to provide the respective service and for which the aforementioned data processing principles apply.

In some cases, we use external service providers to process your data. These have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are bound by our instructions and are regularly checked.

(2) We can also pass on your personal data to third parties if we work with service providers who offer you promotions, competitions or the like.

(3) Furthermore, we will inform you in the respective offer about the transfer of your data outside of the European Economic Area (EEA).

Contractual relationship

(1) We also collect personal data if you voluntarily provide it to us as part of the fulfillment and processing of the contractual relationship with us. As a rule, this is the following data: name, address, telephone number. Without your separate consent, we use the data you provide exclusively to fulfill and process the contract with us. The legal basis for this is Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR.

(2) Once the contractual relationship has been fully processed, your data will be deleted after the retention periods under tax and commercial law have expired, unless you have expressly consented to the further use of your data. At no time will your data be passed on to third parties unless this is necessary for the execution of the contract or is required by law, or unless you have given us your express consent to do so.

Contact form or email request

(1) If you send us inquiries via our contact form or via e-mail, your details will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. It is necessary to provide your name and an e-mail address. Providing a telephone number and other data is voluntary and serves to make contact easier and to be able to address you personally. This data is stored and used exclusively for the purpose of answering your request or for establishing contact and the associated technical administration. The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in answering your request in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f of the GDPR.

(2) Your data will be deleted after your request has been finally processed. This is the case if it can be inferred from the circumstances that the facts in question have been finally clarified and provided that there are no legal storage obligations to the contrary.

Newsletter

Integration of Google Maps

(1) We use the “Google Maps” component from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter “Google”) on our website to visually display geographic information. By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the technically required data: name and URL of the retrieved file, date and time of retrieval, amount of data transferred, notification of successful retrieval (HTTP response code), browser type and browser version, operating system, referrer URL (ie the previously visited page), IP Address and the requesting provider are transmitted. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether there is no user account.

(2) Google LLC based in the USA is certified for the US-European data protection agreement “Privacy Shield”, which ensures compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU. If you do not agree to the future transmission of your data to Google when using Google Maps, you also have the option of completely deactivating the Google Maps web service by switching off the JavaScript application in your browser. Google Maps and thus also the map display on this website cannot then be used.

(3) You can view Google’s terms of use at http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/terms/regional.html, the additional terms of use for Google Maps can be found at https://www.google. com/intl/de_US/help/terms_maps.html Detailed information on data protection in connection with the use of Google Maps can be found on the Google website (“Google Privacy Policy”): http://www.google.de/intl/ en/policies/privacy/

Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)

(1) In order to display our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries from Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this website. Google web fonts are transferred to your browser’s cache to avoid multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Webfonts or prevents access, content will be displayed in a standard font. The legal basis for the use of Google Webfonts is our legitimate interest in the correct graphical representation of our website in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.

(2) By calling up script libraries or font libraries, a connection to the operator of the library is automatically established. It is theoretically possible – although it is currently unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes – that operators of such libraries collect data.

The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Use of Google Analytics

(1) This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, California 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 Para 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.

(2) Since we have activated IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand 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 sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services related to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

Use of Google DoubleClick

(1) This website also uses the DoubleClick application from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, California 94043, USA (hereinafter: “Google”). DoubleClick uses cookies to serve ads relevant to users, to improve campaign performance reports, or to prevent a user from seeing the same ads multiple times. Google uses a cookie ID to record which ads are displayed in which browser and can thus prevent them from being displayed more than once. In addition, DoubleClick can use cookie IDs to record so-called conversions that are related to ad requests. This is the case, for example, when a user sees a DoubleClick ad and later uses the same browser to go to the advertiser’s website and buy something there.

The legal basis for the use of your data is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Clause 1 Letter f GDPR.

(2) Further information on DoubleClickby Google is available at https://www.google.de/doubleclick and http://support.google.com/adsense/answer/2839090, as well as on data protection at Google in general: https:// www.google. de/intl/de/policies/privacy.
