II.   general information on data processing

1.      scope of processing

We only collect and use the personal data of our users to the extent that this is necessary to provide a functional website as well as our content and services. Therefore, we only process those personal data that you, as a user of the website and/or as a customer, provide to us through information, for example in the context of a request or registration or for the conclusion of a contract.

 

2.      Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for data processing is

  • your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a GDPR. We only collect and use the data of our users with the user’s consent. An exception applies in cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the processing of data is permitted by law.
  • the initiation and fulfilment of contracts pursuant to Art. 6 (1) b GDPR. To process your request to your complete satisfaction or to get in contact with you, we require your data.
  • the fulfilment of a legal obligation of our company pursuant to Art. 6 (1) c GDPR by passing on user data to authorities, such as the tax office, the health insurance provider or other public bodies.
  • the protection of a legitimate interest of our company pursuant to Art. 6 (1) f GDPR. These generally include marketing and advertising measures. As prospective customers and customers of our services, we would like to keep you up to date about news and promotions for our services or activities. These activities are subject to a balancing of interests and are not expected to affect the fundamental rights and freedoms of users.

 

3.      Data erasure and storage duration

Your personal data will be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which we as the controller are subject. The data will also be blocked or erased if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

 

IIi.  TRANSFER OF PERSONAL DATA

If you as a user of our website and/or customer have made your data available to us, we will only use these to respond to your requests, to process contracts and for technical administration.

Your data will only be passed on or transmitted by us to third parties if this is necessary for the purpose of contract processing or for billing purposes, or if you as a user of the website and/or customer have given your prior consent. As a user of the website and/or customer you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future.

 

Iv.  PROVISION OF THE WEBSITE AND CREATION OF LOG FILES

1.     description and scope of data processing

Every time you visit our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the visiting computer.

The following data are collected:

  • Information about the browser type and version used
  • The user’s operating system
  • The user’s Internet service provider
  • The user’s IP address
  • Date and time of access
  • Websites from which the user’s system accesses our website
  • Websites visited by the user’s system via our website

 

2.     legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 (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 user’s IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session.

Your IP address is stored in log files to ensure the correct functioning of the website. In addition, the data help us to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our IT systems. The data are not analysed for marketing purposes in this context.

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

4.     duration of storage/ objection and elimination option

The data will be erased as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the session in question has ended.

If the data are stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Storage beyond this is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are erased or pseudonymised, so that it is no longer possible to allocate the visiting client.

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is essential for the operation of the website. Consequently, it is not possible for the user to object.

vi.  web analysis services- google analytics

1.     scope of processing

We use Google Analytics from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA to analyse your surfing behaviour. These analysis services use “cookies”, which are text files that are stored on your computer and allow an analysis of the way in which you use this website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to the servers of the web analysis services (Google: in the USA) and stored there. These analysis services will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity for the website operators and provide other services related to the use of the website and the Internet.

  • The website visited
  • The website from which the user accessed the website visited (referrer)
  • The subpages accessed from the website visited

Please note that the code “anonymizelp” has been added to Google Analytics on this website, to ensure the anonymous collection of IP addresses (IP masking).

2.     legal basis for processing personal data

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) f GDPR.

3.     purpose of data processing

The processing of users’ personal data enables us to analyse the surfing behaviour of our users. Evaluating the data obtained allows us 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. These purposes are where our legitimate interest in processing the data pursuant to Art. 6 (1) f lies. By anonymising the IP address, users’ interest in the protection of their personal data is sufficiently taken into account.

4.    duration of storage

Data will be erased as soon as they are no longer needed for our recording purposes. In our case, this is after 7 days.

This can also be done automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may no longer be possible to use all features of the website in full.

You can change the settings of your browser software to prevent cookies being stored. However, we must point out that doing so may mean that you can no longer use all features of our website in full. Furthermore, you can prevent the collection of the data created by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of these data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link

We offer the users of our website the option of opting out from the analysis process. To do this, follow this link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

The purposes and categories of personal data being processed, including the recipients or categories of recipients to whom your data have been or will be disclosed and the planned duration of the storage of your data.

Under the following conditions, you may request that the processing of your data be restricted:

  • if you dispute the accuracy of your data for a period of time that enables us to check the accuracy of your data;
  • if the processing is unlawful and you reject the erasure of your data and instead request that the use of your data be restricted;
  • if we no longer need your data for the processing purposes, but you need them to establish, exercise or defend legal claims, or
  • if you have lodged an objection to the processing and it has not yet been determined whether our legitimate reasons override your reasons.

Where the processing of your data has been restricted, such data may only be processed – apart from being stored – with your consent or for the purpose of establishing, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person.

If the processing restriction has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be notified by us before the restriction is lifted.

We are obliged to erase your data without delay if one of the following reasons applies:

5.     right to object

You have the right to lodge an objection to the processing of your data at any time.

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

6.     Right to withdraw the data protection declaration of consent

You have the right to withdraw your data protection declaration of consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent will not affect the legality of processing carried out on the basis of consent before withdrawal.
