General information on data processing
Scope of the processing of personal data / Encryption

The use of our website functions is generally possible without the processing of personal data. Please refer to the corresponding explanations below regarding the (personal) data technically transmitted to us by you.

We process personal data of our users only insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a functional website. The processing of personal data of our users takes place regularly only after consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases where it is not possible to obtain prior consent for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations, e.g. to fulfil our contractual obligations.

Our website uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of personal data and other confidential content (e.g. when placing orders). You can recognize an encrypted connection by the string "https://" and the lock symbol in your browser line.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, Article 6 (1) (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation (e.g. fulfilment of tax archiving obligations) to which our company is subject, Art.6 Para.1 lit.c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Article 6(1)(d) DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.

Data deletion and storage period

The personal data of the data subject shall be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. Storage may also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need to continue storing the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.

Data processing for individual types of use

Collection of personal data when visiting our websiteDescription and scope of data processing

Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer. The following data is collected:

  • The IP address of the user
  • Date and time of access
  • Websites from which the user's system accesses our website
  • Websites that are called up by the user's system via our website
  • Access status/HTTP status code
  • Data volume transferred in each case

The data is also stored in the log files of our system. A storage of this data together with other personal data of the user does not take place.

Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Purpose of the data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user's computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.

The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

retention period

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.

In the case of storage of data in log files, this is the case after 30 days at the latest. Storage beyond this period is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

Possibility of objection and removal

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

All personal data stored in the course of contacting us will be deleted in this case.

II. NewsletterDescription and scope of data processing

On our website there is the possibility to subscribe to a free newsletter. When registering for the newsletter, the data from the input mask is transmitted to us (in particular your e-mail address).

In addition, the following data is collected when you register for the newsletter:

  • IP address of the calling computer
  • Date and time of registration

For the processing of data, your consent is obtained during the registration process and reference is made to this privacy policy.

In connection with the data processing for the dispatch of newsletters, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data is used exclusively for sending the newsletter. The newsletter can be unsubscribed at any time by clicking the link at the bottom of the newsletter.

Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the processing of the data after registration to the newsletter by the user is, if the user has given his consent, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

Purpose of the data processing

The collection of the user's e-mail address is used to deliver the newsletter.

The collection of other personal data during the registration process serves to prevent misuse of the services or the e-mail address used.

retention period

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. The user's e-mail address is therefore stored as long as the subscription to the newsletter is active. The other personal data collected during the registration process is usually deleted after a period of seven days.

Possibility of objection and removal

The subscription to the newsletter can be cancelled by the user concerned at any time. For this purpose, a corresponding link can be found in each newsletter.

This also allows you to revoke your consent to the storage of personal data collected during the registration process.

Shipping service provider

The newsletter is sent using different dispatch service providers: "sendinblue", "newstroll", "mailchip", "getresponse", "CleverReach", "Emma", ActiveCampaign", "rapidmail" or Clever Elements" (hereinafter referred to as "dispatch service providers"). You can view the data protection provisions of the individual dispatch service provider here:

https://myemma.com/legal/cookie-notice

https://www.activecampaign.com/cookie-policy/

https://www.rapidmail.de/datensicherheit

https://cleverelements.com/privacy

The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described in the context of these notes, are stored on the servers of the dispatch service provider. The shipping service provider uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, according to its own information, the dispatch service provider may use this data to optimise or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimisation of the dispatch and the presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes in order to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, the dispatch service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them itself or to pass it on to third parties.

Registration data: To register for the newsletter, it is sufficient to enter your e-mail address.

Statistical collection and analyses - The newsletters contain a so-called "web beacon", i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the server of the dispatch service provider when the newsletter is opened. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information, such as information on the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and the time of the retrieval are initially collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services on the basis of the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour on the basis of their retrieval locations (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or the access times. Statistical surveys also include determining whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our intention nor that of the dispatch service provider to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.

Cancellation/revocation - You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. Your consent to the dispatch of the newsletter by the dispatch service provider and the statistical analyses will then expire at the same time. A separate cancellation of the dispatch by the dispatch service provider or the statistical analysis is unfortunately not possible. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter.

Web analysis / user-based online advertising

Web analysis through google Analytics

For the purpose of demand-oriented design and continuous optimization of our site, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Web analytics is the collection, collation and analysis of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. A web analytics service collects, among other things, data about which website a visitor came to a website from (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage of the website was accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used for the optimization of a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The use is based on Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website such as.

Browser type / version,

operating system used,

Referrer URL (the previously visited page),

Host name of the accessing computer (IP address),

Time of the server request

are transmitted to servers and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services associated with the use of the website and the Internet for the purposes of market research and the design of this website in line with requirements. This information may also be transferred to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on our behalf.

In no case will the IP address be associated with other data concerning the user. We use the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the Internet connection is shortened and anonymised by Google if access to our website takes place from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The user may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on the browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

The user can object to the creation of usage profiles at any time. For the notification of the objection, the contact data mentioned under point 14 can be used. To do this, you must download and install a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information on visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google as an objection. If the information technology system of the data subject is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later point in time, you will have to perform a new installation of the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics. Insofar as the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by you or another person attributable to your sphere of control, you have the option of reinstalling or reactivating the browser add-on. As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on this link: Opt-Out Cookie. An opt-out cookie will be set, which prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.

We continue to use Google Analytics to analyse data from Double-Click-Cookies and also AdWords for statistical purposes. If you do not wish this, you can deactivate this via the Ads Preferences Manager (http://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/?hl=de).

Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.

The processing of the users' personal data enables us to analyse the surfing behaviour of our users. By evaluating the data obtained, we are able to compile information about the use of the individual components of our website. This helps us to continuously improve our website and its user-friendliness. In these purposes also lies our legitimate interest in the processing of data according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. By anonymizing the IP address, the interest of users in the protection of their personal data is sufficiently taken into account.

Facebook Pixel, Custom Audiences and Facebook Conversion

On our website, the so-called "Facebook Pixel" of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or if you are a resident of the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook"), is used due to our legitimate interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our offer and for these purposes. These purposes are also our legitimate interest in the data processing according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and thereby offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).

With the help of the Facebook pixel, it is possible for Facebook to determine the visitors to our online offer as a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called "Facebook ads"). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display the Facebook ads placed by us only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called "Custom Audiences"). With the help of the Facebook pixel, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of users and do not have a harassing effect. With the help of the Facebook pixel, we can also track the effectiveness of the Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called "conversion").

The processing of data by Facebook takes place within the framework of Facebook's data usage policy. Accordingly, general information on the display of Facebook ads, in the data usage policy of Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php. Specific information and details about the Facebook Pixel and how it works can be found in Facebook's help section: https://www.facebook.com/business/help/651294705016616.

You can opt-out of the Facebook Pixel's collection and use of your data to display Facebook Ads. To adjust which types of ads are displayed to you within Facebook, you can visit the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions there regarding the settings for usage-based advertising: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads. The settings are platform independent, i.e. they are applied to all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.

You may also opt-out of the use of cookies for reach measurement and advertising purposes by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page (http://optout.networkadvertising.org/) and additionally the U.S. website (http://www.aboutads.info/choices) or the European website (http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/).

The legal basis for the use of this service is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence. 1 letter f DSGVO.

According to its own information, Facebook stores the date and time of the visit, the specific Internet address on which the social plugin is located, and other technical data such as the IP address, browser type and operating system for a period of 90 days in order to further optimize Facebook's services. After 90 days, the data is anonymized so that it can no longer be associated with a specific person.

Conversion measurement with the "Twitter Pixel

Functions of the Twitter service are integrated on our pages. These functions are offered by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. By using Twitter and the "Re-Tweet" function, the websites you visit are linked to your Twitter account and made known to other users. In the process, data is also transferred to Twitter. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the pages, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Twitter.

With the help of the "Twitter pixel" set on our pages, we can in particular track users' actions after they have seen or clicked on a Twitter advertisement. This procedure is used to evaluate the effectiveness of the Twitter ads for statistical and market research purposes and can help to optimize future advertising measures. The data collected is anonymous for us, so we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the users. However, the data is stored and processed by Twitter, so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Twitter can use the data for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with the Twitter privacy policy. You can enable Twitter and its partners to place advertisements on and outside of Twitter. Furthermore, a cookie may be stored on your computer for these purposes. You can find more information on this in Twitter's privacy policy at http://twitter.com/privacy.

The legal basis for the use of this service is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence. 1 letter f DSGVO. You can object to the collection by the Twitter pixel and use of your data at the following address: help.twitter.com/en/safety-and-security/twitter-do-not-track.

Twitter is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and thereby offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law (privacyshield.gov).

The right to data portability shall not apply to processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

Right of objection

You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data relating to you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) DSGVO; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The controller shall no longer process the personal data concerning you unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

If the personal data concerning you is processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.

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

You have the possibility, in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to exercise your right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.

Right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law

You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.

Automated decision in individual cases including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision

  • is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the controller,
  • is authorised by legislation of the Union or the Member States to which the controller is subject and that legislation contains adequate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or
  • with your express consent.

However, these decisions must not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Article 9(1) of the GDPR, unless Article 9(2)(a) or (g) of the GDPR applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.

With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the controller shall take reasonable steps to safeguard the rights and freedoms of, and the legitimate interests of, the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.

Right to complain to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR.

The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 GDPR.
