3. Scope and legal basis of processing of personal data

We generally collect and use our users’ personal data only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website as well as our content and services. Our users’ personal data are regularly collected and used, but only with the user’s consent. An exception applies to cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for practical reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

The following data are collected:

  • Information about the browser type and version used
  • The user’s operating system
  • The user’s internet service provider
  • The user’s IP address
  • Date and time of access
  • Websites from which the user's system is accessing our website
  • Websites that are accessed by the user's system through our website
  • The log files contain IP addresses or other data that can be attributed to a user. This could be the case, for example, if the link to the website from which the user accesses the website or the link to the website which the user switches to contains personal data.

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

    4.2 Legal basis for data processing

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

    4.3 Purpose of data processing

    The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the provision of the website to the user’s computer. To do this, the user's IP address must be stored for the duration of the session.

    Storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data are used to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. No data are analysed for marketing purposes in this context.

    Our legitimate interest in data processing also lies in these purposes pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1(f) GDPR.]

    5. Contact form and email contact

    5.1 Description and scope of data processing

    A contact form is provided on our website, which can be used to engage in electronic contact. If a user avails themselves of this option, the data entered in the input mask are transmitted to us and stored. These data include:

  • Last name
  • Email address
  • Telephone number
  • Message
  • The following data are also stored at the time the message is sent:

  • The user’s IP address
  • Date and time of registration

    You may also contact us via the email address provided. In this case, the user’s personal data transmitted with the email are stored.

    No data are forwarded to third parties in this regard. These data are used exclusively for processing the conversation.

    5.2 Legal basis for data processing

    The legal basis for the processing of data upon obtaining the user’s consent is Art. 6 Para. 1(a) GDPR.

    The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted when sending an email is Art. 6 Para. 1(f) GDPR. If the aim of the contact via email is to conclude a contract, processing shall also be legally based on Art. 6 Para. 1(b) GDPR.

    5.3 Purpose of data processing

    We only process the personal data from the input mask in order to process the contact. In the case of contact via email, this also includes the required legitimate interest in processing the data.

    The other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent abuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

    5.4 Period of storage

    Data are erased once they are no longer necessary for the purpose for which they were collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by email, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended.

    If the deletion of any data is not permitted for statutory reasons, to exercise a legal claim or by commercial or tax law, in particular by statutory retention periods, the data will be blocked instead of deleted.

    6. Use of cookies

    This website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are filed and stored on a computer system through an internet browser.

    Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique code identifying the cookie. It consists of a string through which websites and servers can be assigned to the specific web browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows websites and servers that have been visited to distinguish the individual's browser from other web browsers that contain other cookies. A particular web browser can be recognised and identified by the unique cookie ID.

    The use of cookies allows users of this website to be provided with more user-friendly services, which would not be possible without the cookie.

    Cookies are used to optimise the information and services offered to the user on our website. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognise users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, users of a website that uses cookies need not re-enter their log-in data each time they visit the website as this is done by the website and the cookie is stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie used in a shopping cart in an online shop. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.

    The data subject can prevent cookies being placed by our website at any time by adjusting their web browser’s settings to permanently refuse cookies. Furthermore, cookies already placed can be deleted at any time through a web browser or other software programs. This is possible in all current web browsers. If the data subject disables cookies in their web browser, they may not be able to make use of all of the functions of our website in some cases.

    6.1 Description and scope of data processing

    Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in or by the internet browser on the user's computer system. When a user visits a website, a cookie may be stored on the user's operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic string that allows the browser to be uniquely identified when the website is later reopened.

    We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some elements of our website require that the accessing browser be identified, even after switching to a different website.

    The following data are therefore stored and transmitted in the cookies:

  • Language settings
  • Items in a shopping cart
  • Log-in information
  • In addition, we use cookies on our website that enable users’ browsing behaviour to be analysed.

    Here, the following data may be transmitted:

  • Search terms entered
  • Frequency of site visits
  • Use of website features
  • When accessing our website, users are informed about the use of cookies for analysis purposes and their consent is obtained to process the personal data used in this context. Users are also linked to this Privacy Policy.

    6.2 Legal basis for data processing

    The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies that are technically necessary is Art. 6 Para. 1(f) GDPR.

    The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for analysis purposes after obtaining the user’s consent in this regard is Art. 6 Para. 1(a) GDPR.

    6.3 Purpose of data processing

    The purpose of using cookies that are technically necessary is to facilitate the use of websites for the users concerned. Some features of our website may not be available without the use of cookies. To access these features, we must be able to recognise the user’s browser even after they switch to another website.

    We need cookies for the following applications:

  • Shopping cart
  • To recognise language settings
  • To recognise search terms
  • The user data collected through technically necessary cookies are not used to create user profiles.

    Analysis cookies are used for the purpose of improving the quality of our website and its content. Analysis cookies enable us to learn how the website is used so that we can continue to optimise our services.

    These purposes pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1(f) GDPR] also reflect our legitimate interest in processing personal data.

    6.4 Period of storage, option to object and remove

    Cookies are stored on the user’s computer and sent to us from there. This means that, as a user, you have full control over the use of cookies. By changing your browser’s settings, you can disable or restrict the transmission of cookies. Cookies that have already been saved can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically.

    9. Plug-ins and Tools

    9.1 Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)

    The processing controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) into this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the surveying, collection and analysis of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data on the website from which a person has accessed a website (called a referrer), which sub-pages of the website were accessed or how often and for what length of time a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics is primarily used to optimise a website and provide a cost-benefit analysis of web advertising.

    The company operating Google Analytics components is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

    The controller uses the “_gat._anonymizeIp” add-on for web analytics via Google Analytics. This add-on allows the data subject’s IP address for their internet connection to be truncated and anonymised by Google if they access our website from a Member State of the European Union or from another country which is a signatory 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. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us that show activity on our website and to provide other services related to the use of our website.

    Google Analytics places a cookie on the data subject’s information technology system. Cookies have already been explained above. The placement of this cookie enables Google to analyse the usage of our website. Each time someone opens an individual page of this website which is run by the controller responsible for processing and on which a Google Analytics component is integrated, the Google Analytics component in question will trigger the browser on the data subject’s information technology system to automatically send data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google receives information about personal data, such as the data subject’s IP address, which, among other things, enables Google to track the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently charge commission.

    The cookie stores personally identifiable information, such as the time of access, the location from which access was made and the frequency of site visits by the data subject. Each time someone visits our website, these personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, are transferred to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through this technical process to third parties.

    As mentioned above, the data subject can prevent the cookies being placed by our website at any time by adjusting their web browser’s settings to permanently refuse cookies. Adjusting the browser’s settings in this way would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the data subject’s information technology system. In addition, a cookie already placed by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time through a web browser or other software programs.

    Furthermore, the data subject has the option of objecting to and preventing the collection of the data generated by Google Analytics relating to the use of this website and the processing of these data by Google. To do this, the data subject must download and install a browser add-on at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data or information about website visits may be transmitted to Google Analytics. From Google’s point of view, the installation of this browser add-on constitutes an objection. If the data subject's information technology system is later deleted, formatted or reinstalled, the data subject must re-install the browser add-on in order to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or disabled by the data subject or any other person authorised to do so within the data subject’s sphere of control, it is possible to reinstall or reactivate the browser add-on.

    The use of Google Analaytics is in the interest of convenient and easy use of our website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. (f) GDPR.

    Additional information and Google's privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/gb/policies/privacy/

    and at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail at https://www.google.com/intl/en_gb/analytics/.

    9.2 Privacy policy for the use of Google AdWords

    The processing controller has integrated Google AdWords into this website. Google AdWords is an internet advertising service that allows advertisers to run adverts in both Google and Google advertising network search engine results. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to predefine keywords that will display an ad on Google's search engine results only when the search engine retrieves a keyword-related search result. On the Google Network, ads are distributed to relevant websites using an automated algorithm and according to predefined keywords.

    The company operating the Google AdWords services is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

    The purpose of Google AdWords is to promote our website by displaying interest-based advertising on third-party websites and in the search engine results of Google's search engine and by displaying third-party ads on our website.

    If the data subject arrives on our website via a Google advert, what is known as a conversion cookie will be stored on the data subject’s information technology system by Google. Cookies have already been explained above. A conversion cookie expires after 30 days and is not used to identify the data subject. Provided the cookie has not expired, the conversion cookie is used to trace whether certain sub-pages, such as the shopping cart of an online shop system, were accessed on our website. The conversion cookie tells us and Google whether any revenues was generated by a data subject who arrived on our website via an AdWords ad, i.e. if they completed or cancelled a purchase.

    The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to provide visitor statistics for our website. We then use these visitor statistics to determine the total number of users who have been directed to us through AdWords ads in order to determine the success or failure of each AdWords ad and to optimise our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor any other Google AdWords advertisers receive any information from Google that could identify the data subject.

    The conversion cookie stores personally identifiable information, such as the web pages visited by the data subject. Each time someone visits our website, these personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, are transferred to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through this technical process to third parties.

    As mentioned above, the data subject can prevent the cookies being placed by our website at any time by adjusting their web browser’s settings to permanently refuse cookies. Adjusting the browser’s settings in this way would also prevent Google from placing a conversion cookie on the data subject’s information technology system. In addition, a cookie already placed by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time through a web browser or other software programs.

    Furthermore, the data subject has the option to object to Google's interest-based advertising. To do this, the data subject must visit www.google.com/settings/ads from each of the web browsers they use and change the settings there as desired.

    The use of GoogleAdWords is in the interest of convenient and easy use of our website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. (f) GDPR.

    Additional information and Google's privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/gb/policies/privacy/.

    9.3 Privacy policy for the use of YouTube

    The processing controller has integrated YouTube components into this website. YouTube is an online video portal that allows video publishers to freely place video clips and allows other to view, rate and comment on videos free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos. Both full film and television broadcasts as well as music videos, trailers and user-generated videos are available via the online portal.

    YouTube is operated by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

    Each time a visitor opens an individual page of the website run by the controller responsible for processing and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) is integrated, the YouTube component in question will trigger the browser on the data subject’s information technology system to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Additional information on YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/. As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google receive information about the specific sub-page of our website visited by the data subject.

    If the data subject is logged onto YouTube at the same time as they visit our website, YouTube identifies the specific sub-page of our website visited by the data subject when a sub-page containing a YouTube video is accessed. This information is collected through YouTube and Google and assigned to the appropriate YouTube account of the data subject.

    If the data subject is logged onto YouTube when they access our website, YouTube and Google always receive a notification through the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website. This happens regardless of whether or not the data subject clicks on a YouTube video. If the data subject does not want this information transferred to YouTube and Google, they can prevent this by logging out of their YouTube account before visiting our website.

    The use of YouTube-components is in the interest of convenient and easy use of our website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. (f) GDPR.

    YouTube's privacy policy, available at https://www.google.com/intl/gb/policies/privacy/, provides information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.

    9.4 Google Tag Manager

    This website uses Google Tag Manager, a cookie-free domain that does not collect personally identifiable information.

    Through this tool, "site tags" (i.e., keywords that are incorporated into HTML elements) can be implemented and managed through a user interface. By using the Google Tag Manager, we can automatically understand which button, link or which personalized image you have actively clicked on and can then record which content of our website is particularly interesting for you.

    The tool also triggers other tags, which may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If you've opted out at the domain or cookie level, it will remain in effect for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.

    The use of Google tag Manager is in the interest of convenient and easy use of our website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. (f) GDPR.

    9.5 DoubleClick

    On this website, the controller has integrated components of DoubleClick by Google. DoubleClick is a trademark of Google, under which predominantly special online marketing solutions are marketed to advertising agencies and publishers.

    The operating company of DoubleClick by Google is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, UNITED STATES.

    DoubleClick by Google transmits data to the DoubleClick server with each impression, clicks, or other activity. Each of these data transfers triggers a cookie request to the data subject's browser. If the browser accepts this request, DoubleClick uses a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. The purpose of the cookie is the optimization and display of advertising. The cookie is used, inter alia, to display and place user-relevant advertising as well as to create or improve reports on advertising campaigns. Furthermore, the cookie serves to avoid multiple display of the same advertisement.

    DoubleClick uses a cookie ID that is required to execute the technical process. For example, the cookie ID is required to display an advertisement in a browser. DoubleClick may also use the Cookie ID to record which advertisements have already been displayed in a browser in order to avoid duplications. It is also possible for DoubleClick to track conversions through the cookie ID. For instance, conversions are captured, when a user has previously been shown a DoubleClick advertising ad, and he or she subsequently makes a purchase on the advertiser's website using the same Internet browser.

    A cookie from DoubleClick does not contain any personal data. However, a DoubleClick cookie may contain additional campaign IDs. A campaign ID is used to identify campaigns that the user has already been in contact with.

    With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a DoubleClick component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective DoubleClick component to send data for the purpose of online advertising and billing of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, Google gains knowledge of any data that Google may use to create commission calculations. Google may, inter alia, understand that the data subject has clicked on certain links on our website.

    The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.

    The use of DoubleClick is in the interest of convenient and easy use of our website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. (f) GDPR.
