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 necessary to provide a functional website and our contents and services. The collection and use of personal data of our users is regularly only carried out with the consent of the user. An exception is made in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDRP serves as the legal basis. When processing personal data which is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDRP serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation (statutory provisions) to which our company is subject (e.g. federal registration laws), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDRP serves as the legal basis. If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDRP serves as the legal basis for the processing.

Data deletion and storage duration

The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other regulations to which the person responsible is subject.

Analysis and tracking tools

Google Analytics

Our offer uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on the user’s computer and which enable an analysis of the use of the website by the user. The information generated by the cookies about the use of this website by the users is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, the IP address of the users of Google will be shortened beforehand 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 transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. IP anonymisation is active on this website.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the website by users, to compile reports on website activity and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with website and internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.

Users can prevent the storage of cookies by means of a corresponding setting in their browser software; however, this offer points out to users that in this case they may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. Furthermore, users can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the website (including their IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. As an alternative to the browser add-on or within browsers on mobile devices, please click on this link to prevent Google Analytics from recording data within this website in the future. An opt-out cookie will be placed on your device. If you delete your cookies, you must click this link again.

Google Services

Google DoubleClick

We have integrated components from DoubleClick by Google on our website. DoubleClick is a brand of Google, under which mainly special online marketing solutions are marketed to advertising agencies and publishers. DoubleClick by Google transfers data to the DoubleClick server with every impression, click or other activity.

Each of these data transfers triggers a cookie request to the browser of the person concerned. If the browser accepts this request, DoubleClick sets a cookie in your browser.

DoubleClick uses a cookie ID, which is required to complete the technical process. The cookie ID is required, for example, to display an advertisement in a browser. DoubleClick can also use the cookie ID to record which advertisements have already been displayed in a browser in order to avoid duplication. The cookie ID also enables DoubleClick to track conversions. For example, conversions are recorded if a user has previously seen a DoubleClick ad and subsequently makes a purchase on the advertiser’s website using the same Internet browser.

A DoubleClick cookie does not contain any personal information, but may contain additional campaign identifiers. A campaign identifier is used to identify the campaigns you have already been in contact with on other websites. As part of this service, Google will obtain knowledge of data which will also be used by Google to generate commission statements. Among other things, Google can track that you have clicked on certain links on our website. In this case your data will be passed on to the operator of DoubleClick, Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Further information and DoubleClick by Google’s applicable privacy policy can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy.

We process your data with the help of the Double-Click cookie for the purpose of optimising and displaying advertising based on your consent. You give your consent by adjusting the settings for the use of cookies (cookie banner / Consent Manager), with which you can also declare your revocation at any time with effect for the future in accordance with Art. 7 Para. 3 GDRP. Among other things, the cookie is used to place and display user-relevant advertisements and to create reports on advertising campaigns or to improve them. Furthermore, the cookie serves to avoid multiple displays of the same advertisement. Each time you visit a single page on our website that has a DoubleClick component embedded, your browser is automatically prompted by the DoubleClick component to submit data to Google for the purposes of online advertising and commissions. There is no legal or contractual obligation to provide your data. If you do not give us your consent, a visit to our website is possible without restriction, but not all functions may be available in full.

The actual storage period of the processed data cannot be influenced by us, but is determined by Google Ireland Limited. For more information, please see the Google DoubleClick privacy policy.

This website uses Google Maps API, a map service of Google Inc. (“Google”), for the display of an interactive map and for the creation of route maps. Google Maps is operated by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

By using Google Maps, information about your use of this website (including your IP address) can be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google may transfer the information obtained through Maps to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.

Under no circumstances will Google link your IP address to other Google data. It is nevertheless technically possible that Google could identify at least individual users on the basis of the data received. It would be possible that personal data and personality profiles of users of the website could be processed by Google for other purposes over which we have and can have no influence.

The legal basis for the use of Google Maps is our legitimate interest in data processing.

The purpose of the use of Google Maps is to show the user our location on the website and to enable him to find different ways of getting there using the services of Google Maps.

You have the possibility to deactivate the service of Google Maps and thus prevent the data transfer to Google by deactivating JavaScript in your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you will not be able to use the map display on our website.

As soon as you as a logged in Facebook user actively use the Facebook plugin, e.g. by clicking on the “Facebook” logo or using the comment function, this data is transferred to your Facebook account and published. You can only avoid this by logging out of your Facebook account first.
