IV. General Provisions on Data Processing

1. Scope of Processing of Personal Data

We process personal data of our users only insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a functional website.

2. Data Erasure and Storage Duration

The personal data of the data subject are deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage ceases to apply. Data may furthermore be stored if provided for by the European or national legislators in Union directives, laws or other regulations to which the Controller is subject. The data are blocked or deleted also on expiry of a storage period prescribed in the above-mentioned standards unless the continued storage of the data is necessary for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

V. Provision of the Website and Compilation of Log Files

Every time our Internet website is called up, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.

1. Description and Scope of Data Processing

The use of our homepage does not involve any collection of personal data, except the temporary storage of the IP address, without which use of the homepage is not possible.

2. Legal Basis for Data Processing

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

3. Purpose of Data Processing

The data are stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data help us to optimise the website and to safeguard the security of our IT systems. The data are not evaluated for marketing purposes in this context.

4. Duration of Storage

The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the achievement of 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 respective session is terminated.

The temporary storage does not allow any identification of personal data.

5. Right of Objection and Right to Erasure

Collection of the data for provision of the website and storage of the data in log files is essential for the operation of the Internet website. The user therefore has no right to oppose such collection and storage.

VI. Use of Cookies

1. Description and Scope of Data Processing

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in the user’s Internet browser or on the user’s computer system by the Internet browser. If a user calls up a website, a cookie can be stored on the user’s operating system. This cookie contains a distinctive character string that allows unambiguous identification of the browser when the website is called up again.

We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some elements of our Internet website require the calling browser to be identified even after switching to a different website.

2. Legal Basis for Data Processing

The legal basis for the processing of personal data with the use of cookies is Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR.

3. Purpose of Data Processing

The purpose of using technically necessary cookies is to simplify the use of the website for the user. Certain functions of our Internet website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. For these functions it is necessary that the browser can still be identified even after switching to a different website.

The user data collected by technically necessary cookies are not used to create user profiles.

These purposes also found our legitimate interest in the processing of the personal data in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR.

4. Duration of Storage, Right of Objection and Right to Erasure

Cookies are stored on the user’s computer and transmitted by the computer to our website. You as user therefore have complete control over the use of cookies. You can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies by changing the settings in your Internet browser. Cookies already stored can be deleted at any time. This process can also be automated. If cookies are deactivated for our website, you may no longer be able to make full use of all the functions of the website.

VII. Google Analytics

This website uses the service “Google Analytics” provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) for the analysis of website usage by users. The service uses “cookies” – text files that are stored on your device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

IP anonymisation is used on this website. Within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area, the users’ IP address is abridged (shortened). This shortening eliminates the personal reference to your IP address. Within the framework of the agreement on contracted data processing that the website operators have concluded with Google Inc., the latter uses the information collected to create an evaluation of the website use and website activity and provides services associated with the Internet use.

You have the option of preventing the storage of the cookie on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. We cannot guarantee that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if your browser does not allow cookies.

Furthermore, you can use a browser plug-in to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) being sent to Google Inc. and being used by Google Inc.

The corresponding plug-in can be found under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

Further information on the use of data by Google Inc. can be found here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de

If the data are not deleted because they are required for other legally permitted purposes, their processing will be restricted, i.e. the data will be blocked and not processed for any other purposes. This applies e.g. to data that have to be retained for commercial and tax law reasons.

4. Right to Restriction of Processing (Art. 18 GDPR)

(1)            If you contest the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;

(2)            The processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of the personal data and request the restriction of their use instead;

(3)            The Controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you require these data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or

(4)            If you have objected to processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR pending verification as to whether the legitimate grounds of the Controller override your grounds.

If processing of the personal data concerning you has been restricted, these data shall – with the exception of storage – only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.

If processing has been restricted under the above conditions, you shall be informed by the Controller before the restriction of processing is lifted.

5. Right to Notification (Art. 19 GDPR)

If you have exercised your right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing vis à vis the Controller, the Controller shall be obliged to communicate this rectification or erasure of personal data or restriction of processing to all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort.

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

6. Right to Data Portability (Art. 20 GDPR)

(2)        Processing is carried out by automated means.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data concerning you transmitted directly from one Controller to another, where technically feasible. This right shall not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.

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

The controller shall no longer process the personal data relating to you unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

8. Right to Revoke Consent under Data Protection Law

You have the right to revoke your consent under data protection law at any time. This revocation of consent shall not prejudice the lawfulness of processing carried out up to the time of your revocation.

9. Right of Complaint to a Supervisory Authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes the GDPR.

The supervisory authority with whom the complaint was lodged shall inform the complainant on the progress and the outcome of the complaint including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Art. 78 GDPR.
