III.        General information about data processing

1.           Scope of personal data processing

We only collect and use personal data of our users insofar as this is necessary to provide a functional website as well as our content and services. The collection and use of our users’ personal data takes place routinely upon users’ consent. An exception applies in cases where it is not possible to obtain consent in advance for practical reasons, and where data processing is permitted by the statutory provisions.

2.           Legal basis for processing personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) clause 1 (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.

In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) clause (b) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to the processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) clause 1 (c) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

Insofar as the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and to the extent that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override this legitimate interest, Art. 6 (1) clause (1) (f) GDPR serves the legal basis for processing.

3.           Data erasure and storage period

The personal data of the data subject will be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage ceases to apply. In addition, such storage may take place if provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject. The data can also be blocked or erased when a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a requirement for the continued storage of the data to conclude or perform a contract.

IV.        Availability of the website and creating log files

1.           Description and scope of data processing

Whenever you visit our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the visitor’s computer system.

The following data is collected:

  • The IP address of the user
  • Date and time of access

The data is also stored in our system’s log files. The data is not stored in conjunction with the user’s other personal data.

2.           Legal basis for data processing

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

3.           Purpose of data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user’s computer. For this the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.

The data is stored in log files 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. In this context, no data is evaluated for marketing purposes.

This also constitutes our legitimate interest in data processing as per Art. 6 (1) clause 1(f) GDPR.

4.           Storage period

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer needed to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the event that data is collected in order to make the website available, this is the case once each session has ended.

If the data is stored in log files, this will happen after seven days at the latest. Storage period may be extended. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated to ensure that the calling client can no longer be traced back.

5.           Right to objection and removal

Collecting the data in order to make the website available, and saving this data in log files, is necessary in order to operate the website. The user is therefore not entitled to object to this.

X.          Use of Google AdWords

  1. Description and scope of data processing

We use the program of Google AdWords to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising materials (so-called Google AdWords) on external websites. We can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are in relation to the data from the advertising campaigns.

This advertising media is delivered by Google via Ad Servers. For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, through which certain parameters for measuring success can be measured, such as the display of advertisements or of clicks by users. If you access this website via a Google ad, Google AdWords will store a cookie on your device. These cookies usually expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. The following data is usually stored as analysis values for this cookie:

  • The unique cookie ID
  • Number of ad impressions per placement (frequency)
  • Last impression (relevant for post view conversions)
  • Opt-out data (flagging that the user does not wish to be addressed anymore)

These cookies enable Google to recognize your Internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an AdWords customer’s website and the cookie stored on their computer has not expired, both Google and the customer are able to recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page. Each AdWords customer is assigned a different cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked across the websites of AdWords customers. We do not process any personal data ourselves in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. We are able to recognize which of the advertising measures are particularly effective on the basis of the evaluations. We do not receive any further data from the use of advertising material; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of the information.

Further information about Google’s Privacy Policy can be found at: http://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy and https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html.

  1. Purpose of data processing

With the use of Google AdWords we seek to show you the advertisements that are of interest to you and want to make our website more interesting for you and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs.

This also constitutes our legitimate interest in data processing as per Art. 6 (1) clause 1(f) GDPR.

  1. Storage period / Right to objection and removal

The cookies used usually expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification.

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser is capable of establishing a direct connection to the Google server automatically. We therefore have no influence on the scope and the further use of the data which are collected by Google’s use of this tool, and therefore hereby notify you of the following, which represents the best of our knowledge: By including AdWords Conversion, Google receives the information that you have accessed the relevant section of this website or have clicked on an ad. If you are registered with a Google service, Google may associate your visit to our website with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is a possibility that the provider may obtain and store your IP address.

You can prevent participation in the tracking procedure in several ways: a) by configuring your browser software accordingly, in particular, the suppression of third-party cookies will prevent you from receiving any third-party ads; b) by disabling the cookies for conversion tracking by configuring your browser to block cookies from the domain ‘www.googleadservices.com’, https://www.google.de/settings/ads, this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies; c) by deactivating the interest-based advertisements of the providers that are part of the ‘About Ads’ self-regulatory campaign via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices, this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies; d) by permanently deactivating in your the Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browsers under the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of our website.

XI.        Integration of Google Maps

  1. Description and scope of data processing

We use Google Maps functions on this website. This allows us to display interactive maps directly on the website and enables you to conveniently use the map function.

When you visit this website, Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding sub-page of our website. In addition, the following data is transmitted:

  • IP address of the visitor’s computer
  • Date and time of request

This is done regardless of whether Google provides a user account that you are logged in to, or if there is no user account. When you’re logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not wish to be associated with your profile on Google, you must log out before clicking the link.

In addition, depending on the user’s setting, Google may even collect location data. However, this always requires your consent to the use of this information, which you may refuse denying the corresponding request with Google.

Your right to erasure does not apply where processing is required

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

(2)       the processing is carried out using automated methods.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to request that your personal data be transferred directly from one data controller to another, insofar as this is technically feasible. In doing so, other people’s freedoms or rights may not be impaired.
