The rights of data subjects

Your rights as the subject person

As a data subject, you have the following rights with respect to your your personal data. You have:

  • A right to be informed, inter alia, of the categories of data processed, the purposes of processing, duration of storage and the possible recipients, in accordance with Art. 15 DSGVO and § 34 BDSG.
  • A right to correction or deletion of inaccurate or incomplete data, in accordance with Art. 16 and 17 DSGVO and § 35 BDSG.
  • Under the conditions of Art. 18 DSGVO or § 35 para. 1 sentence 2 BDSG a right to limitation of processing.
  • A right to object to the processed of data if processing is based on legitimate interest under the conditions of Art. 21 DSGVO.
  • A right to revoke a consent given with effect for the future pursuant to Art. 7 para. 3 DSGVO.
  • A right to data transferability in a common format in accordance with Art. 20 DSGVO.
  • Pursuant to Art. 22 DSGVO, you have the right not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processingthat has legal effect on you or similarly significantly affects you. This also includes profiling within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 4 DSGVO.
  • You also have the right, pursuant to Art. 77 DSGVO, to complain to a data protection supervisory authority about the processing of your personal data by us, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, workplace or the place of the suspected infringement.

Procedure:

If you assert your rights under the DSGVO and the BDSG against us, we will process the data you transmit to us in order to fulfill your claim.

Subsequently, we store the data transmitted by you to us and the data transmitted by us to you, in return for the purpose of documentation until the expiry of the administrative offense limitation period (three years).

The legal basis for the processing and storage of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f) DSGVO (Legitimate interest in data processing). The legitimate interest arises from our obligation to comply with your request and the need to be able to exonerate ourselves in any potential penalty proceedings by proving that we have properly complied with your request.

You can object to your data being processed by us even when the processing is based on our legitimate interest at any time under the conditions of Art. 21 DSGVO. Please use the contact data given in the imprint. We would like to point out, however, that the processing of your data to prove compliance with the rights of data subjects is mandatory within the meaning of Art. 21 (1) DSGVO, as other means of proof do not exist or are not equally suitable.

Data protection measures

We secure our website and other systems – and thus also your data – against loss, destruction, access, alteration or distribution by unauthorized persons using technical and organizational measures. Your personal data will be transmitted through the internet in encrypted form. We use the TLS (Transport Layer Security) coding system.

Because the transmission of information over the internet is never completely secure, we cannot provide a 100 percent guarantee of the security of data transmitted from our website.

Methods of data processing

Sources and categories of personal data

We process your personal data to the extent necessary for the establishment, content, or modification of a contractual relationship between us and you (inventory data). Inventory data may be: Name, title, contact details (mailing address, telephone, email address), date of birth, etc.

We also process your usage data. Your usage data are generated while you are using our website and our services. Such data include your IP address, the start and end of your visit to our website, and information about content you have accessed on our website.

We collect the above-mentioned data either directly from you as you visit the website or, as far as permitted by data protection laws, from third parties or publicly accessible sources (e.g., trade and association registers, media releases or reports or the internet).

Transfer of data to countries outside the EU

All information that we receive from you or about you is generally processed on servers within the European Union. Your data will only be transferred to or processed in other countries without your express consent if this is provided for by law, and if an appropriate level of data protection is ensured in the other country. 

Transfer of data, order processing

We never pass on your personal data to third parties without authorization. However, we may disclose your data to third parties if you have consented to the disclosure of your data, if the disclosure is necessary to fulfill our legal obligations or if we are entitled or obliged to disclose your data due to statutory provisions or official or court orders. In particular, this may involve providing information for the purposes of criminal prosecution, safeguarding against danger or enforcing intellectual property rights.

We may also transfer your data to external service providers who process data on our behalf and in accordance with our instructions (contract processors) in order to streamline or assist our own data processing. Each processor shall be bound by a contract compliant with Article 28 GDPR. This means, in particular, that the processor must guarantee they will use suitable measures to ensure that your rights as a data subject are guaranteed and that the processing is carried out in accordance with the GDPR. Although we use contract processors, we remain in control of the processing of your personal data within the bounds of data protection laws.

Purpose of data processing

We always use the data only for the purpose for which the data was collected from you. We may process the data for another purpose, unless this other purpose is incompatible with the original purpose (Article (5)(1)(c) GDPR).

Storage period

Unless we state otherwise in detail, we will only store data collected from you for as long as is necessary for the purpose in question, unless statutory retention obligations prohibit its deletion.

Individual processing activities

In the following we would like to show you as transparently as possible which data we process from you on which occasion, on which basis and the purpose.

Server log files

Each time a website is accessed and each time data is retrieved from a server, general information is automatically transmitted to the server providing it. This data transfer takes place automatically and is a fundamental component of communication between devices on the Internet.

The data transferred by default includes the following information: Your IP address, product and version information about the browser used and the operating system (the user agent), the website from which your access took place (the referrer), date and time of the request (the timestamp). In addition, the http status and the amount of data transferred are recorded as part of this request.

This information is logged by the server, written to a table and temporarily stored there (the server log files). By analyzing these log files, we are able to detect and subsequently correct website errors, determine website usage at specific times and make adjustments or improvements based on this, and ensure server security by tracking the IP address from which attacks were made on our server.

Your IP address will only be stored for the time you use the website and will be deleted immediately afterwards or made partially unrecognizable by abbreviating it. The remaining data is stored for a limited period of time (usually 7 days).

The legal basis for the processing and storage of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f) DSGVO (Legitimate interest in data processing). The legitimate interest arises from the necessity for the operation and maintenance of our website, as we have explained above. You can object to your data being processed by us at any time even when the processing is based on our legitimate interest under the conditions of Art. 21 DSGVO. Please use the contact data given in the imprint. However, we would like to point out in advance that the processing of your data in server log files is mandatory within the meaning of Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO, as otherwise the website cannot be operated at all.

 

Cookies

We use "cookies" to improve the user-friendliness of our website.

What are cookies

Put very simply, a cookie is a small text file that stores data about web pages visited. Cookies can be used in many ways. For example, they can store a type of "user profile", including information like your preferred language and page settings that are required by our website to provide certain services to you. The cookie file is stored on your end device and can also help to recognize you when you visit our website again.

Cookies may also enable us to obtain information about your preferred activities on our website and thus tailor our website to your individual interests or even increase the speed of the navigation of our website.

How you can avoid cookies

You can manually delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.

You can also prevent the storage of cookies from the outset by adjusting your browser settings accordingly. However, please note that you may then not be able to use all the functions of our website to their full extent or that errors may occur in the presentation and use of the website.

Third party cookies

It is possible that third-party providers, with the help of which we design and operate our site, (see below in the section "Third Party Services"), may independently store their own cookies on your terminal device, particularly by use of plugins. If you only want to accept our own cookies, but not cookies from these third parties, you can prevent the storage of these cookies by selecting the appropriate browser setting "Block third-party cookies".

Legal basis

The legal basis for the use of cookies that are absolutely necessary for the function of the website (e.g. shopping cart cookie, session cookie) is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f) DSGVO (legitimate interest in data processing). The legitimate interest results from our need to be able to offer you a functioning website. Cookies are necessary because they are an integral part of current Internet technology and without cookies, many functions of current websites would not be available. We therefore need cookies to be able to provide you with the website at your request.

You can object to your data being processed by us at any time even when the processing is based on our legitimate interest under the conditions of Art. 21 DSGVO. Please use the contact data given in the imprint.

However, we would like to point out that the processing of your data in certain cookies is mandatory in the sense of Art. 21 Para. 1 DSGVO, as otherwise the website cannot be operated at all and we do not have the technical means to prevent the setting of cookies on certain individual terminal devices. However, you may be able to do this yourself in your browser. For more information, please refer to the manual of your browser.

The legal basis for the use of cookies that are absolutely necessary for the function of the website (e.g. shopping cart cookie, session cookie) is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f) DSGVO (legitimate interest in data processing). We ask you to agree to the use of unnecessary cookies the first time you access the website by means of a displayed information text. You can withdraw your consent at any time by deleting all cookies in your browser. How this works in your browser, can be found in the browser instructions.

 

Web Storage

What is web storage

Web storage is a technique for web applications that stores data in a web browser. Web storage can be seen as a simplified further development of cookies, but differs in a number of ways.

Unlike cookies, which can be accessed by both server and client, web storage is completely controlled by the client. This means that data is not transferred to the server every time the website is called up. The access is exclusively local via scripts on the website. In concrete terms, this means that access by third parties to the stored information via the website is excluded. Only you and we can access the locally stored data.

Legal basis

The legal basis for the use of cookies that are absolutely necessary for the function of the website (e.g. shopping cart cookie, session cookie) is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f) DSGVO (legitimate interest in data processing). The legitimate interest results from our need to be able to offer you a functioning website. Cookies are necessary because they are an integral part of current Internet technology and without cookies many functions of current websites would not be available. We therefore need cookies to be able to provide you with the website at your request.

You can object to your data being processed by us at any time, even when the processing is based on our legitimate interest under the conditions of Art. 21 DSGVO. Please use the contact data given in the imprint.

However, we would like to point out that the processing of your data in certain cookies is mandatory in the sense of Art. 21 Para. 1 DSGVO, as otherwise the website cannot be operated at all and we do not have the technical means to prevent the setting of cookies on certain individual terminal devices. However, you may be able to do this yourself in your browser. For more information, please refer to your browser manual.

Third-party services

To simplify our data processing and to extend the functional scope of our website, we use services/resources from third parties, for example plug-ins, external content, software or other external service providers (services). Personal data may also be transmitted to the service provider. In order to protect your data, we have, if necessary, contractually obliged the service providers pursuant to Art. 28 DSGVO to process your data only in accordance with our instructions.

We expressly point out that we are, as a rule, only responsible for data collection and transmission by the service in the sense of the DSGVO, but not for any processing by the respective service provider that may occur at a later date.

In detail we use the following services:

Google services

Our website uses the following services provided by Google Ireland Limited ("Google EU"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. This company represents in the EU the company Google LLC ('Google US'), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The company Google US meets the requirements of the "EU-US Privacy Shield" (in German: EU-US-Datenschutzschild). The Privacy Shield Agreement governs the protection of personal data transferred from a member state of the European Union to the USA. It shall ensure that the data transmitted is also subject to a level of data protection there that is comparable to that in the European Union. You can download the list of certified companies here: https://www.privacyshield.gov/list.

By using the services, data is transmitted to Google EU and possibly from Google EU to Google US. The Google Group may process the data transmitted in order to create anonymous user profiles for statistical purposes. If you also have a Google Account and are logged in to it, Google can associate the information you submit with your account - even across devices. We have no influence on this data processing. Google EU is therefore responsible for this data processing.

You can find more information on the handling of user data in the Google privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy.

You can manage your Google advertising settings on the following web page: https://adssettings.google.com/?hl=de (This setting is deleted when you delete your cookies)

We use:

Google Analytics

Our website uses the service "Google Analytics" from Google. Google Analytics uses cookies (see above under "Cookies") to enable us to analyze the use of the website by website visitors. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by the user is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Among other things, the following can be transmitted: Your IP address, product and version information about the browser and operating system used (so-called user agent), the website from which you accessed the site (so-called referrer), date and time of the request and possibly your Internet service provider.

On our website, IP anonymization has been activated so that your transmitted IP address is shortened and thus partly made unrecognizable, i.e. anonymized, before it is transferred outside the scope of the DSGVO. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address first be transferred to a Google server in the USA and immediately shortened there.

Google will use the transmitted information on our behalf to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with further services related to website and Internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google.

For more information on terms of use and privacy at Google Analytics, please visit http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or under https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites?hl=de

You can prevent the data generated by the cookie and related to the use of the website (including IP address) from being transmitted to Google or processed by Google by downloading the browser plugin available under the following link and installing it in your browser. The current link is: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

You can also prevent the setting of cookies altogether (see above "How to avoid cookies").

The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter a) DSGVO (consent of the person concerned). We ask you to agree to the use of the service when you access the website for the first time by means of a displayed information text. You can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future by deleting all cookies in your browser. How this works in your browser, can be found in the browser instructions.

Google Fonts

Oue webseite uses the external font service „Google Fonts“ from Google. This service enables us to present our website in a uniform and attractive way, even with very differently configured user end devices, by loading fonts from an external server instead of from the user's end device. For this purpose, the required fonts are usually requested from a Google server in the USA. As a result of this request, the following information, among others, is transmitted to the Google server and stored there: Your IP address, product and version information about the browser and operating system used (so-called user agent), the website from which you accessed the site (so-called referrer), date and time of the request and possibly your Internet service provider.

The legal basis for the processing and storage of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f) DSGVO (Legitimate interest in data processing). The justified interest results from our need for an attractive and uniform presentation of our online offerings. You can object to your data being processed by us at any time even when the processing is based on our legitimate interest under the conditions of Art. 21 DSGVO. Please use the contact data given in the imprint.

Google Tag Manager

Our website uses the service „Google Tag Manager“ from Google. This service does not itself process any personal data. However, the Google Tag Manager will trigger scripts that are required by other services to collect data. Google Tag Manager cannot access this data.

YouTube

Our website uses the video service "YouTube" from Google. YouTube is used to integrate videos at various points in our website. When videos are played, the following information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there for several months: Your IP address, product and version information about the browser and operating system used (so-called user agent), the website from which you accessed the site (so-called referrer), date and time of the request and possibly your Internet service provider. YouTube uses this information, among other things, to gather statistics and to improve the service.

This service uses your browser's web storage. See the „Web Storage” section above for more information.

The legal basis for the processing and storage of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f) DSGVO (Legitimate interest in data processing). The justified interest results from our need for an appealing presentation of our online offerings and the easy retrieval of the locations indicated on our homepage. You can object to your data being processed by us at any time even when the processing is based on our legitimate interest under the conditions of Art. 21 DSGVO. Please use the contact data given in the imprint.

Content delivery networks

Our website uses the Content Delivery Networks (CDN). A CDN is a network of powerful servers that temporarily cache content at different locations around the world. A CDN essentially has two tasks: it should provide content in the shortest possible time and it should lighten the load on the web host by sharing the data traffic.

CDNs communicate two types of content: Static and dynamic content. All website visitors receive static content in the same form, such as video content from streaming services or code frameworks (e.g. Javascript, jQuery). Dynamic content is initially adapted to the user and only created at the moment of the request. This includes content that is personalized and delivered via web applications such as email or online shops. To use the latter, information about the website visitor must first be transmitted to the CDN. Personal data may also be communicated by you.

Whenever the application is called up, general information is automatically communicated to the server by your browser (the server log files). For further information see above under "Server log files“.

The legal basis for the use of CDNs and the transmission of your data to them is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f) DSGVO (legitimate interest in data processing), unless otherwise stipulated for the respective service. The justified interest results from our need for a technically faultless and fast rendering of our website and the relieving of our IT infrastructure. You can object to your data being processed by us at any time even when the processing is based on our legitimate interest under the conditions of Art. 21 DSGVO. Please use the contact data given in the imprint.

We use:

Akamai CDN

Our website uses the CDN service "Akamai" from Akamai Technologies, Inc. ("Akamai"), 150 Broadway, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02142, USA. The company Google US meets the requirements of the "EU-US Privacy Shield" (in German: EU-US-Datenschutzschild). The Privacy Shield Agreement governs the protection of personal data transferred from a member state of the European Union to the USA. It shall ensure that the data transmitted are also subject to a level of data protection in the US that is comparable to that in the European Union. You can download the list of certified companies here: https://www.privacyshield.gov/list.

For more information about Akamai's privacy practices, please visit: https://www.akamai.com/de/de/privacy-policies.

Analysis Tools

We use certain services that record data from website visitors and make it available to us for analysis. We use this data for the use-oriented improvement of our website, our services and offerings. In particular, the following information on visitor behavior may be collected: Your IP address, product and version information about the browser used and the operating system (so-called user agent), the website from which your access took place (so-called referrer), date and time of the request and possibly your Internet service provider, approximate origin (country and city), language, clicks on contents and viewing time.

The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter a) DSGVO (consent of the person concerned). We ask you to agree to the use of the service when you first access the website by means of a displayed information text.  You can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future by deleting all cookies in your browser. How this works in your browser, can be found in the browser instructions.

Media services

We use certain services to fill and supplement our website with digital content. We usually use the integration functions of external platforms for this purpose.

For further information see above under „Server log files“.

The legal basis for the use of media services is generally Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f) DSGVO (legitimate interest in data processing), unless otherwise stated for the particular service. The legitimate interest results from our need to be able to offer you a functioning website. You can object to your data being processed by us at any time even when the processing is based on our legitimate interest under the conditions of Art. 21 DSGVO. Please use the contact data given in the imprint.

Advertising services

We use services on our website that help us to promote sales and popularity of our offerings. These services can, for example:

  • record the surfing behavior of our website visitors and provide corresponding advertisements based on this information
  • collect statistical information about the interaction with advertisements on our website, which we may use to optimize our advertising expenditure, or
  • show an average of other customers' opinions about our company (so-called ratings/testimonials).

The services may in particular collect the following data: Origin (country and city), language, operating system, end device (PC, tablet PC or smartphone), browser and all add-ons used, referrer (source through which the user came), clicks on advertising banners, viewing time, actions after clicking on advertising banners. This data or parts of it may also be transmitted to the respective service provider to allow the use of the service.

For example, the data collected is automatically processed in order to display appropriate advertising based on your supposed preferences, for the purposes of market research or to design our website to meet your needs. This constitutes an automated decision making or profiling process according to Art. 4 No. 4; Art. 22 DSGVO. This automated processing is permissible pursuant to Art. 22 para. 2 no. 2 DSGVO on the basis of Section 15 para. 3 TMG. You have the right to object to this type of data processing at any time. Please use the contact data given in the imprint.

The legal basis for the use of advertising services is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter a) DSGVO (consent of the person concerned). We ask you to agree to the use of the service when you first access the website by means of a displayed information text. You can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future by deleting all cookies in your browser. How this works in your browser, can be found in the browser instructions.

Social Media Fan Pages

In addition to our website, we maintain an online presence on social platforms in order to communicate with customers, interested parties, and users active there, and to inform them about our services.

If you visit our presence on a social platform, your data will generally be processed by the respective provider of the platform for our market research and advertising purposes. The provider can also process the data for its own purposes. User profiles can be created on the basis of your usage behavior and the resulting interests. These usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place inside and outside the platforms advertisements that presumably correspond to your interests. For these purposes, cookies (see above) are usually stored on your device, where your usage behavior and your interests are stored. In particular, if you are a member of the respective platforms and are logged in to them, additional data can be stored independently in the user profiles. For a detailed representation of the respective data processing and the objection possibilities, we refer to the following linked data of the providers, since only these know the exact procedures of their data processing.

We would like to point out that your data can also be processed outside the European Union. This can result in risks. For example, processing outside the EU could make it more difficult to enforce your rights.

Our legal basis for the use of an online presence and the associated data processing is generally Article (6)(1)(1)(f) GDPR (legitimate interest in data processing). Our legitimate interest comes from our need to present ourselves to the visitors and users of social networks and to bring comments of all kinds into the media and opinion market. You can object to the processing of your data on the basis of our legitimate interest at any time under the conditions of Article 21 GDPR. Please use the contact data given in our legal information.
