We generally only process our users’ personal data insofar as it is necessary for providing a functional website as well as our content and services. The processing of our users’ personal data is only carried out on a regular basis after consent is given by the user. An exception applies in cases where it is not possible to acquire prior consent for practical reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal information, Article 6 (1) (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shall serve as the legal basis.

In the processing of personal data necessary for the fulfilment of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR shall serve as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the person concerned or of another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6 (1) (d) GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the aforementioned interest, Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR shall serve as the legal basis for the processing.

3. Data deletion and storage time
The data subject’s personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. In addition, the data may be stored if the European or national legislator has provided for this in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless further storage of the data is required for the conclusion of a contract or the performance of the contract.

X. Web Analysis by Google Analytics

1. Umfang der Verarbeitung personenbezogener Daten
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and which allow analysis to be carried out of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymization on these web pages, Google’s IP address will be shortened in advance within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting States of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide further website and Internet use services to the website operator. The IP address submitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
The legal basis for the processing of the user’s personal data is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR (DSGVO).

3. Purpose of data processing
The processing of the user’s personal data allows us to carry out an analysis of the surfing behaviour of our users. We are able to compile information about the use of the individual components of our website by evaluating the data we collect. This helps us to constantly improve our website and its user-friendliness. For these purposes, we also have a legitimate interest in the processing of data in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR (DSGVO). By anonymizing the IP address, the interest of the users in their protection of personal data is duly taken into account.

4. Duration of storage
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for our recording purposes.

In our case, this happens after 26 months.

XI. Use of web fonts

External fonts, ie. Google fonts, are used on these internet pages. Google Fonts is a service of Google Inc. (“Google”). The integration of these web fonts is carried out by a server call, usually by a server from Google in the USA.

XII. Integration of third party services and content

It is possible that we may integrate third party content into our website, such as YouTube videos, GoogleMaps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. This always assumes that the providers of this content detect your IP address, since without the IP address the contents would not be able to be sent to your browser. The IP address is therefore required to display this content. We endeavour to only use content where the respective providers use the IP address solely for the delivery of the content.

This site uses in particular YouTube videos from the third-party provider Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google’s privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/, opt-out options for Google’s data usage can be found at: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/. Whenever possible, YouTube videos will be used in enhanced privacy mode, which will not transfer user data to YouTube until the videos are viewed.

(1) is necessary for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract between you and the Controller,
(2) is permissible on the basis of legislation of the Union or of the Member States to which the Controller is subject, and if this legislation provides for appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests or
(3) is made with your express consent.

However, these decisions may not be based on specific categories of personal data in accordance with Article 9 (1) GDPR (DSGVO), unless Article 9 (2) (a) or (g) GDPR applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.

With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the Controller shall take appropriate measures to uphold your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the Controller, to state their own position and challenge the decision.
