In addition, the provider is obliged to inform all recipients to whom data has been disclosed by the provider of any rectification or deletion of data or the restriction of processing which takes place on the basis of Articles 16, 17 para. 1, 18 DSGVO. However, this obligation does not apply if such notification is impossible or involves disproportionate effort. Irrespective of this, the user has the right to information about these recipients.

Users and data subjects also have the right under Art. 21 DSGVO to object to the future processing of data concerning them, provided that the data are processed by the provider in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. In particular, an objection to data processing for the purpose of direct marketing is admissible.

III. Information on data processing

Your data processed when using our website will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies, the deletion of the data does not conflict with any legal storage obligations and no other information on individual processing methods is subsequently provided.

Server data

For technical reasons, in particular to ensure a secure and stable Internet presence, data is transmitted to us or to our web space provider via your Internet browser. With these so-called server log files, the type and version of your Internet browser, the operating system, the website from which you switched to our Internet presence (referrer URL), the website(s) of our Internet presence that you visit, the date and time of the respective access and the IP address of the Internet connection from which the use of our Internet presence is made are collected.

The data collected in this way is temporarily stored, but not together with other data from you.

This storage takes place on the legal basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality and security of our website.

The data will be deleted at the latest after seven days, as long as no further storage is necessary for evidence purposes. Otherwise, the data shall be completely or partially excluded from deletion until the final clarification of an incident.

Cookies

a) Session cookies

We use so-called cookies with our Internet presence. Cookies are small text files or other storage technologies that are stored on your terminal device by the Internet browser you use. These cookies are used to process certain information from you to an individual extent, such as your browser or location data or your IP address.

This processing makes our Internet presence more user-friendly as well as more effective and safer. The processing enables, for example, the reproduction of our Internet presence in different languages or the offer of a shopping basket function.

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b.) DSGVO, insofar as these cookies process data for contract initiation or contract execution.

If the processing does not serve the contract initiation or contract execution, our legitimate interest lies in improving the functionality of our website. The legal basis is then Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

These session cookies are deleted when you close your Internet browser.

b) Possibility of disposal

You can prevent or restrict the installation of cookies by adjusting your Internet browser settings. You can also delete cookies that have already been saved at any time. However, the steps and measures required for this depend on the specific Internet browser you are using. If you have any questions, please use the help function or documentation of your Internet browser or contact its manufacturer or support. In the case of so-called flash cookies, however, processing cannot be prevented via the browser settings. Instead, you must change the settings of your Flash Player. The steps and measures required for this also depend on the Flash Player you are actually using. If you have any questions, please also use the help function or documentation of your Flash Player or contact the manufacturer or user support.

Should you prevent or restrict the installation of cookies, this may, however, result in not all functions of our website being fully usable.

Contact enquiries/contact possibility

If you contact us via contact form or e-mail, the data you provide will be used to process your enquiry. The data provided is necessary for the processing and answering of your enquiry – without its provision we cannot answer your enquiry or can do so only to a limited extent.

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

Your data will be deleted if your request has been answered conclusively and there are no legal obligations to retain data to prevent deletion, such as for example in the case of any subsequent contract processing.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics in our Internet presence. This is a web analysis service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”.

Through the certification according to the EU-US data protection shield (“EU-US Privacy Shield”)

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

Google guarantees that the data protection requirements of the EU will also be complied with when processing data in the USA.

The Google Analytics service is used to analyse the usage behaviour of our website. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our website.

Usage and user-related information, such as IP address, location, time or frequency of the visit to our website, is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, we use Google Analytics with the so-called anonymisation function. Through this function, Google shortens the IP address already within the EU or EEA.

The data collected in this way is in turn used by Google to provide us with an evaluation of the visit to our website and the usage activities there. This data may also be used to provide other services related to the use of our website and the use of the Internet.

Google states that it does not link your IP address with other data. In addition, Google will provide you with further data protection information under

https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners

For example, information on the possibilities of preventing the use of data.

In addition, Google offers

https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

a so-called deactivation add-on together with further information. This add-on can be installed with standard Internet browsers and offers you further control over the data that Google collects when you visit our website. The add-on informs the JavaScript (ga.js) of Google Analytics that information on visits to our website should not be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, this does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analysis services. If and which other web analysis services are used by us, you will of course also find out in this data protection declaration.

Google Maps

On our website we use Google Maps to display our location and to create a route description. This service is provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”.

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

Google guarantees that the data protection regulations of the EU are also observed when processing data in the USA.

In order to enable the display of certain fonts on our website, a connection to the Google server in the USA is established when our website is accessed.

If you call up the Google Maps component integrated into our Internet presence, Google stores a cookie on your terminal device via your Internet browser. Your user settings and data are processed in order to display our location and to create a route description. We cannot rule out the possibility that Google may use servers in the USA.

The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in optimising the functionality of our website.

The connection to Google established in this way enables Google to determine which website has sent your enquiry and to which IP address the route description is to be sent.

If you do not agree with this processing, you have the option of preventing the installation of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your Internet browser. Details can be found above under “Cookies”.

In addition, the use of Google Maps and the information obtained via Google Maps is governed by the Google Terms of Use  and the Terms and Conditions for Google Maps.
