COLLECTION OF GENERAL INFORMATION DURING VISITS TO OUR WEBSITE

Nature and purpose of the processing:

When you access our website, i.e., when you do not register or otherwise submit information, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider, your IP address and the like.

In particular, they are processed for the following purposes:

  • Ensuring a smooth connection setup of the website,
  • Ensuring the smooth use of our website,
  • evaluating system security and stability, and
  • to optimize our website.

We do not use your data to draw conclusions about you personally. Information of this kind will be statistically evaluated by us, anonymously, if necessary, in order to optimize our website and the technology behind it.

Legal basis and justified interest:

The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our justified interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.

Recipient:

Recipients of the data may include technical service providers who act as contractors for the operation and maintenance of our website.

Storage period:

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose for which it was collected. For data used to provide the website, this is generally the case when the individual session has ended.

In the case of data storage in log files, this is the case after 14 days at the latest. Storage beyond this period is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are anonymized, so that allocation to the client who accessed the site is no longer possible.

Stipulated or Mandatory Provision:

The provision of the aforementioned personal data is neither legally nor contractually required. However, without the IP address, the service and functionality of our website is not guaranteed. In addition, individual features and services may not be available or may be limited. For this reason, an opt-out is prohibited.

USE OF GOOGLE ANALYTICS

Provided you have given your consent, this website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (hereinafter: “Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to analyze how users use 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. However, due to the activation of IP anonymization on these web pages, your IP address will be truncated 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 transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google.

For more information on terms of use and data protection, please visit https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html and https://policies.google.com/?hl=de.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.

The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user identifiers (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 14 months. The deletion of data for which the retention period has been reached takes place automatically once a month.

Withdrawal of Consent

You can prevent Google Analytics from tracking your use of our website by clicking on this link. This will install an opt-out cookie on your device. This will prevent the collection by Google Analytics for this website and for this browser in the future, as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.

You can also prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser software; however, please note that in this case you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: Browser Add On to disable Google Analytics

 

GOOGLE ADWORDS

Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. The company operating the Google AdWords services is Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. If you have reached our website via an ad placed by Google, Google AdWords will place a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is placed when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google.

If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across AdWords customers’ websites. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. 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 personally identify users.

You can find more information about data processing by Google in the Google privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy. There you can also change your personal privacy settings in the Privacy Center.

Withdrawal of Consent

No option for a simple opt-out or blocking of data transmission is currently offered by the provider. If you want to prevent tracking of your activities on our website, please revoke your consent for the corresponding cookie category or all technically unnecessary cookies and data transfers in the cookie consent tool. In this case, however, you may not be able to use our website at all, or only to a limited extent.

 

USE OF GOOGLE REMARKETING

This website uses the remarketing function of Google Inc. The operator of the Google Remarketing services is Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter “Google”).

The function is used to present interest-based advertisements to website visitors within the Google advertising network. A “cookie” is stored in the browser of the website visitor, which makes it possible to recognize the visitor when he or she visits websites that belong to the Google advertising network. On these pages, the visitor may be presented with advertisements that relate to content that the visitor has previously accessed on websites that use Google’s remarketing function.

You can find more information about data processing by Google in the Google privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy. There you can also change your personal privacy settings in the Privacy Center.

Withdrawal of Consent

Currently, the provider does not offer the possibility of a simple opt-out or blocking of data transfers. If you want to prevent tracking of your activities on our website, please revoke your consent for the corresponding cookie category or all technically unnecessary cookies and data transfers in the cookie consent tool. In this case, however, you may not be able to use our website at all, or only to a limited extent.

 

SSL-ENCRYPTION

To protect the security of your data during the transfer, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

 

INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR RIGHT TO OBJECT ACCORDING TO ART.21 DSGVO

Right to Object on A Case-By-Case Basis

You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) DSGVO (data processing on the basis of a balance of interests); this also applies to profiling based on this provision within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 4 DSGVO.

If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
