III. General information about data processing

1. Scope of processing of personal data
We fundamentally only collect and use personal data of our clients as far as this is necessary to fulfill our orders. After fulfilling our contractual responsibilities we will only process data after receiving consent. An exception in such cases would be when obtaining prior consent is not possible for practical reasons or the processing of the data is allowed anyway by law.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the person to processing procedures of personal data, Art. 6 Para. 1. a) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data that is necessary for the fulfillment of a contract whose contractual partner is the person concerned, Art. 6 Para. 1 b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processes that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation of our company, Art. 6 Para. 1 c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to uphold a valid interest of our company or of a third party and if the interests, basic rights and fundamental freedoms of the affected person do not outweigh those of the former, then Art. 6 Para. 1 f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

3. Data deletion and storage duration
The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the reason for storage no longer exists. Storage con be maintained if this is foreseen by the European or national legislative authority in Union regulations, laws or other provisions applying to the responsible person. Blocking or deletion of the data will also occur when a prescribed period stated in the standards mentioned expires, unless the necessity exists to continue storage in order to conclude or to fulfill a contract.

VIII. Transmission of personal data to third parties

1. Facebook Plugins (Like & Share Button)
Plugins of the social media networks Facebook, (Provider: Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA) are integrated into our pages. The Facebook plugins can be recognized by the Facebook logo or the “Like Button” on our pages. You can find an overview of the Facebook plugins here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. When you visit our pages, a direct connection will be established between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook thereby receives the information together with your IP address that you have visited our pages. If you click on the Facebook “Like Button” while you are logged into your Facebook account, the content of our pages can be linked to your Facebook profile. In this way, Facebook can relate the visit to our pages to your user account. We hereby advise you that we, as provider of our pages, receive no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data nor of its use by Facebook. Further information on this can be found in the data protection statement of Facebook at: https://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php. If you do not want Facebook to be able to relate your visit to our pages to your Facebook user account, log out of your Facebook user account.

2. Google+ Plugin
Our pages use functions of Google+. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Collection and transmission of information: with the help of Google+ buttons, you can publish the information worldwide. Via the Google+ buttons, you and other users can receive personalized content from Google and our partners. Google stores not only the information that you gave a +1 for specific content but also information about the page that you were viewing when you clicked on +1. Your +1 together with your profile name and your photo in Google services, can be superimposed as a reference, such as in your search results or your Google profile or at other places on websites and in advertisements in the Internet.

Google records information about your +1 activities to improve Google services for you and others. To be able to use the Google+ buttons, you need a public Google profile, which is viewable worldwide, that must at least contain the name chosen for the profile. This name will be used in all Google services. In some cases, this name can also replace another name that you have used when sharing content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be shown to users who know your email address or possess other identifying information about you.

Use of the collected information: apart from the usage purposes mentioned above, the information supplied by you will be used according to the applicable Google data protection regulations. Google may publish compiled statistics about the +1 activities of users and/or give these to users and partners, such as the publishers, advertisers or subscribers of related websites.

3. YouTube
Our website uses plugins from the YouTube website operated by Google. The provider of the pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. A connection will be established to the YouTube servers if you visit one of our pages that contains a YouTube plugin. The YouTube server will be informed thereby of which pages you have visited.

If you are logged into your YouTube account, you make it possible for YouTube to associate your surfing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

The use of YouTube occurs in the interest of providing an attractive presentation of our online services. This represents a justified interest in the sense of Art. 6 Para. 1 f) GDPR. Further information on the handling of user data can be found in the data protection statement of YouTube at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

IX. Website analysis services

1. Google Analytics
This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer that permit an analysis of your usage of the website. The information collected by the cookie about your usage of this website is generally transmitted to a server belonging to Google in the USA and stored there. The storage of Google Analytics cookies occurs on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 f) GDPR. The website operator has a justified interest in the analysis of user behavior to optimize his internet presence as well as his advertising.

a. IP anonymizing
We have activated the function of IP anonymizing on this website. This ensures that Google shortens your IP address within the member states of the European Union or in other members states of the agreement of the Economic Community before transmission to the USA. Only under exceptional circumstances will the complete IP address be transmitted to one of Google’s servers in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate the usage of the website, to generate reports about website activity and to provide related services about website usage and Internet usage for the website operator. The IP address transferred by your browser in conjunction with Google Analytics will not be brought together with other data of Google.

b. Browser Plugin
You can prevent the storing of cookies through a corresponding setting on your browser software; we advise you, however, that in this case you will not be able to take full advantage of all the features of our website. You can also additionally prevent the collection of data by the cookie and the data related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) by Google as well as its processing by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

c. Prohibition of data collection
You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. An opt-out cookie will be saved that prevents the collection of your data during future visits to this website. More information on the handling of user data by Google Analytics can be found in the Google data protections statement here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.

d. Contract data processing
We have concluded a contract with Google for contract data processing and completely implement the strict regulations of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

e. Demographic features of Google Analytics
This website uses the “demographic features” function of Google Analytics. This enables reports to be created that provide information about the age, gender and interests of our website visitors. This data originates from interest-related advertising from Google as well as from visitor data provided by third parties. This data cannot be related to a particular person. You can disable this function at any time via the settings of your Google account or generally prohibit your data from being displayed by Google Analytics, as in paragraph c. above “Prohibition of data collection”.

X. Advertisements and marketing services

1. Google Analytics Remarketing
Our websites use the Google Analytics Remarketing function in connection with the device-independent functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

This function enables the coupling of the target advertising groups created by Google Analytics Remarketing with the device-independent functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. In this way, interest-related, personalized advertising messages can be shown on one of your other devices (e.g. Tablet or PC), in response to your earlier usage and surfing behavior on another device (e.g. mobile phone).

If you granted the appropriate permission, Google will link your web and app browser history with your Google account for this purpose. This enables the same personalized advertising messages to be shown on any device in which you log into your Google account.

To support this function, Google Analytics collects the google-authenticated IDs of the user that is temporarily connected to our Google Analytics data in order to define and create the target groups for device-independent advertising. You can permanently prohibit device-independent remarketing/targeting by deactivating personalized advertising in your Google account; follow this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.

The collation of the data collected in your Google account occurs exclusively on the basis of your consent that you grant to Google or can withdraw at any time (Art. 6 Para. 1 a) GDPR). The collection of data that is not brought together with your Google account (e.g. because you don’t have a Google account or you have prohibited the collation) takes place acc. Art. 6 Para. 1 f) GDPR. The justified interest is given because the website operator has an interest in the anonymized analysis of website visitors for advertising purposes.

Further information and the data protection regulations can be found in Google’s data protection statement at: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/.

2. Google AdWords and Google Conversion tracking
This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).

With Google AdWords we use the so-called Conversion-Tracking function. If you click on an advertisement placed by Google, a cookie will be set for the Conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that your Internet browser stores on the visitor’s computer. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and do not serve to identify the visitor personally. If the visitor calls up certain pages on the website and the cookie has not yet expired, both Google and we can recognize that the visitor has clicked on the advertisement and been forwarded to this page.

Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained with the help of the conversion cookies serves to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers that have decided to use conversion tracking. The customers are informed of the total number of users that have clicked on the advertisement and were forwarded to a page with a conversion tracking tag. They do not, however, receive any information with which visitors can be personally identified. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can prohibit this usage by simply deactivate the cookie for Google conversion tracking via the corresponding setting in your Internet browser. You will then no longer be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

The storage of “conversion cookies” occurs on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 f) GDPR. The website operator has a justified interest in the analysis of visitor behavior to optimize both his Internet presence and his advertising.

More information on Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking can be found in the data protection statement of Google: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.

You can set your browser so that you will be informed about the setting of cookies and only allow the acceptance of cookies in individual cases, or generally prohibit them, as well as activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. The functionality of this website can be affected if cookies are deactivated.

3. Google reCAPTCHA
We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereinafter “reCAPTCHA”) on our websites. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

reCAPTCHA is used to check whether the data that is entered on our websites (e.g. in a contact form) is done by people or an automated program. reCAPTCHA analyses the behavior of a web visitor according to various criteria. This analysis begins automatically as soon as the visitor enters the website. For the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, duration of the website visit or the mouse movements of the user). The collected data from the analysis is forwarded to Google.

The reCAPTCHA analyses run completely in the background. Website visitors are not advised of that an analysis is running. The data processing occurs on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 f) GDPR. The website operator has a justified interest in protecting his Internet presence against improper automated espionage and against SPAM.

Further information on Google reCAPTCHA as well as the data protection statement of Google can be found under the following links: https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and https://www.google.com/recaptcha/intro/android.html.

4. Facebook Pixel
Our website uses Pixel from Facebook for conversion measurement. The provider is Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”).

This allows an analysis of the website visitor after he/she has has been forwarded by a click on a Facebook advertisement on the website of the provider. This enables the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements to be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and future advertising campaigns to be optimized.

The collected data is anonymized for us as operator of this website, and we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the visitor.
