1. Google Services

 

a.) Google Analytics

 

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files that are stored on your computer and which help analyse your use of the website. This is to allow cookies from Google itself (Google Analytics cookies) and so-called third-party cookies (double click cookies). 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. We wish to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended with the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" in order to ensure the anonymous collection of IP addresses (IP masking). With anonymisation active, Google IP addresses are shortened within Member States of the European Union or in other States party to the European Economic Area, which is why no conclusions as to your identity are possible. The full IP address will only be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened in exceptional cases. 

 

In the context of our use of Google Analytics, we have concluded a legally valid agreement with Google for order processing.

 

1. Legal basis for processing personal data

 

The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is § 15 Para. 3 TMG (Telemedia Act) and Art. 6 Para. 1 li. F GDPR.

 

2. Purpose of the data processing

 

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use the collected information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services associated with website and Internet use, in particular also functions for display advertising, such as Google Analytics reports on performance according to demographic characteristics and interests. Google may also transfer this information to third parties as required by law or if said third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google's analytics reports on performance in accordance with demographic characteristics and interests use information and visitor data from third parties (such as age, gender and interests) obtained through interest-based advertising from Google. Google will not under any circumstances associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. 

 

3. Duration of storage

 

Sessions and campaigns will end after a certain period of time. By default, sessions end after 30 minutes without activity and campaigns after six months. The time limit for campaigns can be up to a maximum of two years.

e.) Google Tag Manager

 

Google Tag Manager is a marketing tool from Google Inc. ("Google"), which enables a website's marketers to manage website tags via an interface. Tags are small code elements, which among other things are for measuring traffic and visitor behaviour on a website to determine the impact of online advertising and social channels, remarketing, to introduce orientation toward target groups, and for testing and optimising the website. The Tag Manager tool itself (which implements the tags) is a cookieless domain and does not collect any personal data.

The tool triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data under certain circumstances. The Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If deactivation occurs at domain or cookie level, it remains in use for all tracking tags, insofar as they are implemented with Google Tag Manager. For more information about Tag Manager data collection, please visit: http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

(4) you object to the processing in accordance with Art. 21, Para. 1, GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the responsible party outweigh your reasons.

 

Where processing of the personal data that concerns you has been restricted, such data – apart from being stored – may be processed only with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending rights or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on the grounds of an important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.

 

If the processing restriction has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the responsible party before the restriction has been lifted.

 

4. The right to deletion

 

a) Deletion obligation

You may request that the responsible party delete the personal data that concerns you immediately, and the responsible party will be obliged to delete this data immediately if one of the following reasons applies:

 

(1) the personal data that concerns you is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed;

(2) you revoke your consent to the processing pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a or Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. a GDPR and there is no other legal basis for processing; 

(3) pursuant to Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR, you object to the processing and there are no overriding justifiable reasons for the processing, or Art. 21 Para. to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 Para. 2 GDPR; 
(4) the personal data that concerns you has been processed unlawfully; 

(5) the deletion of personal data is required to comply with legal obligations according to Union law or the laws of the Member States to which the responsible party is subject; 

(6) the personal data that concerns you has been collected in connection with offered information society services pursuant to Art. 8 Para. 1, GDPR.

 

b) Passing information to third parties

If the responsible party has made the personal data that concerns you public and if the responsible party is obliged for its deletion pursuant to Art. 17, Para. 1 of the GDPR, that responsible party shall take appropriate measures, including technical means, while taking into account available technology and implementation costs, to inform the parties responsible for data processing who process the personal data, that you as the person concerned have requested deletion of all links to such personal data or of copies or replications of such personal data. 

 

c) Exceptions

The right to deletion does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary

 

(1) to exercise the right of freedom of expression and information;

(2) for the performance of a legal obligation required for processing under the law of the Union or of the Member States to which the responsible party is subject or for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred to the responsible party;

(3) for reasons of public interest in the field of public health in accordance with Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. h and i, as well as Art. 9 Para. 3, GDPR;

(4) for archiving purposes in the interest of public, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89 Para. 1 GDPR, to the extent that the law referred to in (a) is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudicial the attainment of the objectives of such processing; or

(5) to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

 

5. Right to information

If you have exercised your right to have the responsible party correct, delete or limit the processing, this party is obliged to inform all recipients to whom the personal data that concerns you has been disclosed of this correction or deletion of the data or restriction on processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

It is your right to have the responsible party inform you regarding such recipients.

 

6. The right of data portability

You have the right to obtain your personal data, which you have provided to the responsible party, in a structured, conventional and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to pass this data on to another responsible party without obstruction by the responsible party to whom the personal data was provided, insofar as

 

(1) the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a, GDPR or Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. a GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR and

(2) the processing is undertaken using automated procedures.

 

In exercising this right, you also have the right to request that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly from one responsible party to another responsible party, insofar as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.
The right to data portability shall not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the responsible party.

 

7. The right of objection

 

You have the right, for reasons arising from your specific situation, to object to the processing of personal data concerning you at any time, which is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. e or lit. f, GDPR; the same applies to profiling based on these provisions. 

 

The responsible party will no longer process the personal data that concerns you, unless the party can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing, which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

 

If the personal data that concerns you is being processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of the personal data that concerns you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing.

 

If you object to processing that is for direct marketing purposes, the personal data that concerns you will no longer be processed for these purposes.

 

You have the option of exercising your right of objection in connection with the use of Information Society services by means of automated procedures using technical specifications, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.

 

8. The right to revoke the data protection declaration of consent

You have the right at any time to revoke your data protection declaration of consent. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its revocation.

 

9. Automated decision in individual cases, including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing - including profiling - that has legal effect against you or significantly impairs you in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision 

 

(1) is necessary for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract between you and the responsible party;

(2) is permissible on the basis of legislation of the Union or the Member States, to which the responsible party is subject, and these laws contain adequate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms, as well as your legitimate interests, or

(3) is undertaken with your express consent.

 

However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9, Para. 1 GDPR, unless Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. a or g applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.

 

In the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the responsible party shall take reasonable measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the responsible party, to state his or her own position and to challenge the decision.

 

10. The right of appeal to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State where you reside, work or where the infringement is suspected, if you believe that the processing of personal data that concerns you is in contravention of GDPR. 
The supervisory authority with which the appeal has been lodged shall inform the appellant of the status and results of the appeal, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 GDPR.

 

Please contact the competent supervisory authority:
