III. General Information on Data Processing

  1. Scope of the Processing of Personal Data

In general, we collect and use your personal data only where this is required to provide a functional website and handle our contracts. Once our contractual obligations have been fulfilled, we will only use your data after you have given your consent. An exception will be made in those cases where obtaining prior consent is not possible for factual reasons or the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

  1. Legal Basis for the Processing of Personal Data

To the extent that we obtain consent from the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6(1) (a) GDPR shall serve as the legal basis. Where the processing of personal data is necessary to perform a contract to which the data subject is party, Art. 6(1) (b) GDPR shall serve as the legal basis. This shall also apply to any processing operations required to implement measures prior to entering into a contract.

Where the processing of personal data is necessary to comply with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6(1) (c) GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.

Where the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, provided that this interest is not outweighed by the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, Art. 6(1) (f) GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.

  1. Data Erasure and Storage Period

Personal data of the data subject will be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. The data may be stored beyond this period if this has been provided for by the European or national legislative body in regulations or provisions pertaining to European Union law or other provisions to which the controller is subject. The data will also be blocked or erased if a storage period required by the standards specified above expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.

IV. Provision of the Website and Generation of Log Files

  1. Description and Scope of Data Processing

In general, you may visit our website without telling us who you are. We will only learn about technical data, such as the name of your internet service provider, your IP address, date and time of access, the website from which you accessed our website and the web pages you visit on our site. This information will be stored in log files on our system and evaluated for internal statistical purposes of website analysis as well as for the demand-oriented design of our web pages. The data will not be stored in combination with any other personal data, so you will remain completely anonymous. We will not create any pseudonymized user profiles.

  1. Legal Basis for Data Processing

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

  1. Purpose of Data Processing

Temporary storage of your IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to your computer. This requires storing your IP address for the duration of the session.

Log files are stored to ensure the proper functioning of our website. The data also serves us to optimize our website and ensure the security of our IT systems. The data will not be analyzed for marketing purposes in this context.

Our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6(1) (f) GDPR also lies in these purposes.

  1. Duration of Storage

The data will be erased once it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. Where the data has been collected for the purpose of providing the website, this is the case when the relevant session has ended.

Regarding the storage of data in log files, the data will be erased after seven days at the latest. Further storage is possible. In this case, the user’s IP address will be erased or alienated, so it will no longer be possible to assign the accessing client.

  1. Possibility of Objection and Elimination

For the operation of our website, it is absolutely necessary to collect the data for providing the website and store the information in log files. Therefore, the user has no possibility to object.

Only in exceptional cases will the complete IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. On our account, Google will use this information for the purposes of analyzing your use of this website, compiling reports on website activity and providing us with other services related to the use of this website and internet usage.

Our website uses Google Ads, an online advertising program provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

As part of Google Ads, we also use its conversion tracking tool. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie will be set for conversion tracking. Such cookies will be invalid after 30 days and are not meant to identify you as an individual. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie is still valid, Google and the website operator will be able to recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and has been forwarded to this page.

Every Google Ads customer gets an individual cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of Google Ads customers. The information obtained via conversion cookies serve the purpose of compiling conversion statistics for Google Ads customers who decide to use conversion tracking. Customers learn about the total number of users who have clicked on their ads and have been forwarded to a page provided with a conversion tracking tag. However, they will not receive any information allowing them to identify the user as an individual. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can object to such use by easily disabling the Google conversion tracking cookie in your web browser’s user settings. You will then not be included in any conversion tracking statistics.

“Conversion cookies” are stored based on Art. 6(1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both website and advertising services.

For more information on Google Ads and Google conversion tracking, please refer to the Google Privacy Policy.

Our website uses Google reCAPTCHA (“reCAPTCHA”), a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

The purpose of reCAPTCHA is to check whether the data on our website (e.g. in a contact form) is entered by a human instead of an automated program. Google reCAPTCHA analyzes the website visitor’s behavior based on various characteristics. Analysis will start automatically as soon as the visitor accesses our website. For evaluation purposes, reCAPTCHA analyzes different pieces of information (e.g. IP address, the time spent on our site or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis will be transmitted to Google.

The analysis is carried out entirely as a background operation. Website users will not be informed about the analysis. Data processing is based on Art. 6(1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its website from improper, automated spying as well as from spam.

  • if you contest the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period allowing the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
  • if the processing is unlawful and you decline the erasure of the personal data, requesting the restriction of its use instead;
  • if the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purpose of processing but you need the data for the establishment, exercise or defense of any legal claims;
  • if you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21(1) GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the justified reasons of the controller outweigh your reasons.

Where the processing of the personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data will, except for its storage, only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defense of any legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of substantial public interest of the European Union or of a Member State.

If the processing has been restricted according to the requirements described above, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is dropped.

  1. Right to Erasure

a. Obligation to Erase Personal Data

You have the right to demand from the controller the erasure of the personal data concerning you without delay, and the controller shall be obliged to erase such data without delay if any of the following reasons applies:

  • The personal data concerning you is no longer required for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.

If the controller has made your personal data public and is obliged to erase such data pursuant to Art. 17(1) GDPR, the controller, taking into account the technology available and the implementation cost, shall take adequate (including technical) measures to inform any controllers processing the personal data about the fact that you, the data subject, have requested them to erase any links to or copies or replications of such personal data.

c. Exceptions

The right to erasure shall not apply where the processing is required

  • for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information;
  • for compliance with a legal obligation requiring the processing under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject, or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority transferred to the controller;
  • for reasons of public interest in the public health sector pursuant to Art. 9(2) (h) and (i) GDPR as well as Art. 9(3) GDPR;
  • for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89(1) GDPR, provided that the right mentioned under point a) is likely to render impossible or seriously affect the achievement of the objectives of such processing;

  1. Right to Information

If you have asserted the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing before the controller, the controller shall be obliged to inform each recipient to whom the personal data concerning you has been disclosed about such rectification, erasure or restriction of processing of the data, unless this proves to be impossible or would involve disproportionate effort.

You have the right to be informed about these recipients by the controller.

  1. Right to Data Portability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you provided to the controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.

  • the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6(1) (a) GDPR or Art. 9(2) (a) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6(1) (b) GDPR, and
  • the data is processed using automated means.

Asserting this right, you also have the right to have the personal data concerning you transmitted directly from one controller to another controller, to the extent that this is technically feasible. This shall not affect the freedom and rights of other individuals.

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

  1. Right to Object

For reasons arising from your specific situation, you have, at any time, the right to object to the processing of the personal data concerning you, which is based on Art. 6(1) (e) or (f) GDPR.

The controller shall then no longer process the personal data concerning you, unless he has evidence of compelling legitimate reasons for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the establishment, exercise or defense of any legal claims.

If you object to the processing of personal data concerning you for direct marketing purposes, your data will no longer be processed for such purposes. In the context of using information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you may assert your right to object by automated means that make use of technical specifications.

  1. Right to Withdraw Declaration of Consent under Data Protection Law

You have the right to withdraw your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. Withdrawal of your consent shall not affect the lawfulness of the processing based on your consent before withdrawal.

The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant about the state and results of the complaint, including the option of legal remedy pursuant to Art. 78 GDPR.
