3.    General information on data processing

3.1.    Scope of processing of personal data

As a rule, we only process the personal data of our users to the extent that this is necessary to provide a functioning website and our content and services. The processing of our users' personal data takes place regularly and only with the user's consent. An exception applies in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for real reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

3.2.    Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 letter a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.
Art. 6 para. 1 letter b GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to implement pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 letter c GDPR serves as the legal basis. In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6 para. 1 letter d GDPR serves as the legal basis.
 
If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company, a company affiliated with our company within the meaning of Section 15 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG), or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and basic freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the interest first mentioned, Art. 6 para. 1 letter f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

3.3.    Data deletion and storage period

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by European or national legislators in EU regulations, laws or other provisions 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 there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

4.    Provision of the website and creation of log files

4.1.    Description and scope of data processing

Every time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer.
The following data are collected:

(1)    Information about the browser type and version used
(2)    The user's operating system
(3)    The user's Internet service provider

The data are also stored in the log files of our system. These data are not stored together with the user's other personal data.

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 letter f GDPR.

4.2.    Purpose of 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 computer. For this purpose, the user's IP address must be stored for the duration of the session.

The data are stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimize our website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

4.3.    Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. If the data are collected to make the website available, this is the case when the respective session is over.

If the data are stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Storage beyond this is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or anonymised, so that an assignment to the accessing client is no longer possible.

4.4.    Possibility of objection and elimination

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

6.    Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). Use includes the "Universal Analytics" operating mode. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus analyze a user's activities across devices.
Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are stored on your computer to help the website analyze how you use the site. 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, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, Google will previously shorten your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity and provide other services relating to website and Internet use to the website operator. These purposes also include our legitimate interest in the use of Google Analytics. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 letter a GDPR. The data transmitted by us and linked with cookies, user identification (e.g., user ID) or advertising IDs will be automatically deleted after 14 months. Data for which the storage period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month. For more information on terms of use and data protection, please
 
visit https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html, https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or https://policies.google.com/?hl=en.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and prevent Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en browser add-on. Opt-out cookies prevent future collection of your data when you visit this website. To prevent Universal Analytics from collecting data across different devices, you must opt-out on all systems used. If you click here, the opt-out cookie is set: <a href="javascript:gaOptout()"><strong>Disable Google Analytics</strong></a></p>. Please note that IP anonymization is enabled for this site, which means that Google Analytics has replaced the code with "anonymizeIp" to ensure that IP addresses are collected anonymously (so-called IP masking).
