We will be happy to explain to you what rights you have and how to exercise them, as well.

What is personal data?

To put it briefly, anything whereby you, as an individual, can be identified, whether due to the information itself or in connection with other information. Examples of this include your name, e-mail address, or also a customer ID, but even the point in time at which you visit our website if that is saved together with your IP address. We constantly endeavour to gather as little personal data as possible. Simultaneously, we are informing you in this document, in depth, on your personal data, if we gather any.

Why is this document so long?

The legislative authority requires us to describe the following to you in regard to all personal data individually:

1. Controller and Corporate Data Protection Officer

2. Legal basis

We gather and process personal data based on the most up-to-date European law. You will find the entire legal basis specified below in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Depending upon the purpose for gathering the data, one or more of the legal foundations below will apply:

3. Rights of data subjects

As far as your personal data is concerned, you are the data subject. You have the following rights in regard to the processing of data by us in the scope in accordance with the respective article of the General Data Protection Regulation cited:

Notwithstanding any other legal remedy under administrative or judicial law, you are entitled to file an appeal with a supervisory authority, in particular in the EU Member State that is your place of residence, your place of work or the place of the presumed infringement if you are of the opinion that the processing of the personal data concerned infringes the GDPR.

4. Deletion of data and duration of storage

The personal data of the data subject is deleted or blocked once the purpose of the storage lapses. It may, moreover, be stored beyond that time if this has been stipulated by the European or national legislative authority in EU ordinances, laws or other regulations to which the Controller is subject. The data may also be blocked or deleted if a storage period stipulated by said standards expires, unless the necessity for further storage of the data for concluding an agreement or fulfilling an agreement exists.

II. Specific data processing

1. The gathering of data when you visit the website

a) Scope of the data processing

When you visit our website, the following data will be gathered and saved by our web server:

The IP address or the host name are only available to us in the log files in anonymised form! The other data is saved in the log files of our system. This data is not saved together with other personal data of the user. Our web pages are hosted by our hosting service provider Strato AG, which also processes this data for us.

b) Legal basis

The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR.

In that respect, the legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR lies in the functionality of our website and its availability. The processing by the hosting service provider is based on Art. 28 GDPR.

c) Purpose of the 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 PC. For this purpose, the user’s IP address needs to be stored for the duration of the session.

The data is stored in order to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data serves the purpose of enabling us to optimise the website and ensure that our IT systems are secure. The data is not evaluated for marketing purposes in this respect.

d) Duration of the storage

The log files are deleted in the system at the latest after six weeks. If it is necessary to retain the data for longer for the above-mentioned purpose, due to specific events, it is possible for it to be stored beyond that date. In any event, as already described, the user’s IP address is anonymised, so that it is no longer possible for it to be assigned to a specific user.

e) The possibility of objection and deletion

In order to operate the web site, it is absolutely necessary to gather the data to provide the website and store the data in log files. There is consequently no possibility for the user to object.

2. Google Analytics

a) Scope of the data processing

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). This software gathers information on how you use the website and creates various statistics from that. The usage data gathered in particular includes the specific selection of links, the time spent by you on individual pages and the sequence in which you used the pages on the website, as well as the frequency with which you accessed the pages. This data is gathered together with your IP address. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other data of Google.

Google Analytics uses cookies - text files stored on your computer, allowing for an analysis of the way you use the website. The information generated by the cookie on your use of this website is usually transferred to a server of Google in the USA and saved there.

We have activated the so-called IP anonymisation on this website, i.e. the IP address is first truncated by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area, prior to being transmitted on to the USA.

Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and truncated there. Google itself describes its data processing activity here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

b) Legal basis

The legal basis for the processing of the data when using the website is Art. 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR.

The legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR lies in a customer-orientated design of the website, which does justice to the user’s requirements and takes the user’s usage preferences into consideration.

The legal basis for the passing on of the data to Google is Art. 28(3) and Art. 45(3) GDPR. The service provider is certified under the Privacy Shield Framework and is therefore subject to the adequacy decision (Implementing Decision 2016/1250) of the European Commission, i.e. the level of data protection with the service provider is recognised as being equivalent to that stipulated by the GDPR, even though the service provider has its registered office in the USA.

c) Purpose of the data processing

The processing serves the purpose of analysing this website and the usage pattern of its visitors.

d) Duration of the storage

The data is already anonymised directly after being gathered. Personal data is therefore only gathered in the course of the transmission, and not permanently.

e) The possibility of objection and deletion

You may prevent the cookies from being saved, including the generation and transmission of data to Google, by limiting or prohibiting cookies being placed in your browser software. This may lead to cookies that are not connected with Google possibly also being deactivated and your not being able to use all the functions of this website in their entirety.

You can prevent the data generated by the cookie which relates to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) from being recorded, as well as from being transmitted to Google and the processing of said data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link:
