  • further administrative purposes.

 

The legal basis for the data processing is Art.6 Abs.1 S.1 lit.f DSGVO. The legitimate interest follows from the data collection purposes listed above. In no case do I use the data collected for the purpose of drawing conclusions about you. In addition, I use cookies and analysis services when visiting the website. Further explanations can be found below.

For questions of any kind, I offer you the opportunity to contact me via a form provided on the website. It is necessary to provide a name and a valid e-mail address so that I know who the request came from and to answer it. Further information can be provided voluntarily. The processing of data for the purpose of contacting me takes place in accordance with Art. 6 (1) S.1 lit. a GDPR based on your voluntarily granted consent.

Transfers to third countries  

 

If data is processed in a third country (ie outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)), or in the context of the use of third party services or disclosure, or transmission of data to third parties, this will only be done if it is to fulfill my (pre) contractual obligations, on the basis of your consent, on the basis of a legal obligation or on the basis of legitimate interests. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, I process or let the data in a third country only in the presence of the special conditions of Art. 44 et seq. GDPR. That the processing is e.g. on the basis of specific guarantees, such as the officially recognized level of data protection (eg for the US through the Privacy Shield) or compliance with officially recognized special contractual obligations (so-called “standard contractual clauses”).

 

Collaboration with processors and third parties  

 

If, as part of the processing, I disclose data to other persons and companies (processors or third parties), transmit them to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this will only be done on the basis of a legal permission (eg if the data are transmitted to third parties, as to payment service providers, pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR to fulfill the contract), you have consented to a legal obligation or on the basis of my legitimate interests (eg the use of agents, webhosters, etc.). If we commission third parties to process data on the basis of a so-called “contract processing contract”, this is done on the basis of Art. 28 GDPR.

Here we, or our hosting provider, process inventory data, contact data, content data, contract data, usage data, meta and communication data of customers, interested parties and visitors to this online offer on the basis of our legitimate interests in an efficient and secure provision of this online offer acc.

Cookies  

 

I use cookies on my website. These are small files that your browser automatically creates and that are stored on your device (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit my site. Cookies do not harm your device, do not contain viruses, Trojans or other malicious software. The cookie stores information, depending on the specific device used. However, this does not mean that I am immediately aware of your identity.

 

On the one hand, the use of cookies serves to make the use of my offer more pleasant for you. For example, we use so-called session cookies to recognise that you have already visited individual pages on our website. These are automatically deleted after leaving the page. In addition, to improve usability, I use temporary cookies that are stored on your device for a specified period of time. If you visit my site again to use my services, it automatically detects that you have already been with me and what inputs and settings you have made, so that you do not have to enter them again.

 

On the other hand, cookies are used to statistically record the use of the website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing my offer for you. These cookies make it possible to automatically recognize when you visit my site again that you were already with me. These cookies are automatically deleted after a defined time. The data processed by cookies are required for the purposes mentioned to safeguard my legitimate interests as well as those of third parties according to Art. 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR. Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or a hint appears before a new cookie is created. However, disabling cookies completely may mean that you can not use all features of my website. 

 

Tools for Analysis 

 

Tracking Tools  

 

The tracking measures listed below and implemented by me are carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR. With the tracking measures I want to ensure a needs-based design and the continuous optimization of my website. On the other hand, I use the tracking measures to statistically record the use of my website and to evaluate for the purpose of optimizing my offer for you. These interests are to be regarded as justified within the meaning of the aforementioned provision. The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corresponding tracking tools. 

 

Google Analytics  

 

For the purpose of customizing and continually optimizing our pages, I use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (https://www.google.com/intl/en/about/) (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, hereafter “Google”). In this context, pseudonymised usage profiles are created and cookies are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as

 

  • Browser type / version,

  • used operating system,

  • Referrer URL (the previously visited page),

  • Host name of the accessing computer (IP address),

  • Time of server request,

 

are transmitted to a Google server in the US and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage for the purposes of market research and tailor-made website design. This information may also be transferred to third parties if required by law or if third parties process this data in the order. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with any other data provided by Google. The IP addresses are anonymized, so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking).  

 

You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting the browser software accordingly. However, I would point out that in this case not all features of this website may be fully exploited. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https: //tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).  

 

As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie will be set that will prevent the future collection of your data when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for my website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again. For more information about privacy related to Google Analytics, see the Google Analytics Help Center (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en). 

 

Facebook pixels  

 

On this website, we use the Facebook Pixel of Facebook, a social media network of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. The code implemented on this page can evaluate the behavior of visitors who have come to this website from a Facebook ad. This can be used to improve Facebook ads and this information is collected and stored by Facebook. The collected data is not visible to us but can only be used within the scope of advertising advertisements. The use of the Facebook pixel code also sets cookies.

 

By using the Facebook pixel, the visit to this website Facebook is communicated, so that visitors get to see matching ads on Facebook. If you have a Facebook account and are logged in, the visit to this website will be associated with your Facebook user account.

 

You can change your ad settings on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen if you’re signed in to Facebook. More information about Facebook’s data policy can be found at https://www.facebook.com/policy.php

 

Google Adwords Conversion Tracking  

 

In order to statistically record the use of my website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our website, we also use Google Conversion Tracking. Google Adwords sets a cookie on your computer if you have reached our website via a Google ad. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of the Adwords customer’s website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Every Adwords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can not be tracked via the websites of Adwords customers. The information gathered using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Adwords customers hear the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users. If you do not want to participate in the tracking process, you can also refuse the required setting of a cookie – for example, via a browser setting that generally disables the automatic setting of cookies. Google’s privacy policy on conversion tracking can be found here (https://services.google.com/sitestats/en.html).

In addition, the controller is obliged to inform all recipients to whom it discloses data of any such corrections, deletions, or restrictions placed on processing the same per Art. 16, 17 Para. 1, 18 GDPR. However, this obligation does not apply if such notification is impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. Nevertheless, users have a right to information about these recipients.

Integration of services and contents of third parties

 

On the basis of my legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of my online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 letter f. GDPR) I use content or services from third-party providers on my website, such as videos or fonts (collectively referred to as “content”).

 

This presupposes that the third-party providers of the content perceive the IP address of the users, as it is required for the presentation of the content. I strive to use only content whose respective providers use the IP address only to deliver the content.

 

Third parties may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also referred to as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. The “pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and may include, but is not limited to, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring web pages, visit time, and other information regarding the use of our online offer.

 

Data Security

 

I use appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unauthorized access by third parties. My security measures are constantly being improved in line with technological developments.
