3. data collec­tion on our website
Cookies

The Inter­net pages part­ly use so-cal­led coo­kies. Coo­kies do not dama­ge your com­pu­ter and do not con­tain viru­ses. Coo­kies ser­ve to make our offer more user-friend­ly, more effec­ti­ve and safer. Coo­kies are small text files that are stored on your com­pu­ter and saved by your browser.

Most of the coo­kies we use are so-cal­led “ses­si­on coo­kies”. They are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted at the end of your visit. Other coo­kies remain stored on your end device until you dele­te them. The­se coo­kies enab­le us to reco­gni­ze your brow­ser during your next visit.

You can set your brow­ser so that you are infor­med about the set­ting of coo­kies and allow coo­kies only in indi­vi­du­al cases, exclu­de the accep­t­ance of coo­kies for cer­tain cases or in gene­ral and acti­va­te the auto­ma­tic dele­ti­on of coo­kies when clo­sing the brow­ser. If you deac­ti­va­te coo­kies, the func­tio­n­a­li­ty of this web­site may be limited.

Coo­kies that are requi­red to car­ry out the elec­tro­nic com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on pro­cess or to pro­vi­de cer­tain func­tions that you have reques­ted (e.g. shop­ping bas­ket func­tion) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the sto­rage of coo­kies for the tech­ni­cal­ly error-free and opti­mi­zed pro­vi­si­on of his ser­vices. Inso­far as other coo­kies (e.g. coo­kies to ana­ly­ze your sur­fing beha­vi­or) are stored, they are trea­ted sepa­r­ate­ly in this pri­va­cy policy.
Ser­ver log files

The pro­vi­der of the pages auto­ma­ti­cal­ly collects and stores infor­ma­ti­on in so-cal­led ser­ver log files, which your brow­ser auto­ma­ti­cal­ly trans­mits to us. The­se are:

Brow­ser type and brow­ser version
Ope­ra­ting sys­tem used
Refer­rer URL
Host­na­me of the acces­sing computer
Time of the ser­ver request
IP address

This data is not mer­ged with other data sources.

The basis for data pro­ces­sing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, which per­mits the pro­ces­sing of data for the ful­film­ent of a con­tract or pre-con­trac­tu­al measures.
Con­ta­ct form

If you send us inqui­ries via the con­ta­ct form, your details from the inqui­ry form, inclu­ding the con­ta­ct data you pro­vi­de the­re, will be stored by us for the pur­po­se of pro­ces­sing the inqui­ry and in the event of fol­low-up ques­ti­ons. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

The pro­ces­sing of the data ent­e­red in the con­ta­ct form is thus exclu­si­ve­ly based on your con­sent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revo­ke this con­sent at any time. For this pur­po­se, an infor­mal com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on by e‑mail to us is suf­fi­ci­ent. The lega­li­ty of the data pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons car­ri­ed out up to the point of revo­ca­ti­on remains unaf­fec­ted by the revocation.

The data ent­e­red by you in the con­ta­ct form will remain with us until you request us to dele­te it, revo­ke your con­sent for sto­rage or the pur­po­se for which the data was stored no lon­ger app­lies (e.g. after your request has been pro­ces­sed). Man­da­to­ry legal pro­vi­si­ons — in par­ti­cu­lar reten­ti­on peri­ods — remain unaffected.
Regis­tra­ti­on on this website

You can regis­ter on our web­site to use addi­tio­nal fea­tures on the site. We will use the data ent­e­red for this pur­po­se only for the pur­po­se of using the respec­ti­ve offer or ser­vice for which you have regis­tered. The man­da­to­ry data reques­ted during regis­tra­ti­on must be pro­vi­ded in full. Other­wi­se we will refu­se the registration.

In the event of important chan­ges, for examp­le in the scope of the offer or tech­ni­cal­ly necessa­ry chan­ges, we will use the e‑mail address pro­vi­ded during regis­tra­ti­on to inform you in this way.

The data ent­e­red during regis­tra­ti­on will be pro­ces­sed on the basis of your con­sent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revo­ke any con­sent you have given at any time. All you need to do is send us an infor­mal mes­sa­ge by e‑mail. The lega­li­ty of the data pro­ces­sing alrea­dy car­ri­ed out remains unaf­fec­ted by the revocation.

The data collec­ted during regis­tra­ti­on is stored by us for as long as you are regis­tered on our web­site and is then dele­ted. Legal reten­ti­on peri­ods remain unaffected.
Regis­tra­ti­on with Face­book Connect

4. social media
Share con­tent via plugins (Face­book, Google+1, Twit­ter & Co.)

The con­tent on our pages can be shared in social net­works such as Face­book, Twit­ter or Goog­le+ in com­pli­an­ce with data pro­tec­tion regu­la­ti­ons. This site uses the eRecht24 Safe Sharing Tool for this pur­po­se.

An auto­ma­tic trans­fer of user data to the ope­ra­tors of the­se plat­forms does not occur through this tool. If the user is log­ged in to one of the social net­works, an infor­ma­ti­on win­dow appears when using the social but­tons of Face­book, Google+1, Twit­ter & Co. in which the user can con­firm the text befo­re sen­ding it.

Our users can share the con­tents of this page in social net­works in com­pli­an­ce with data pro­tec­tion regu­la­ti­ons without having to crea­te com­ple­te sur­fing pro­files by the ope­ra­tors of the networks.

This allows reports to be gene­ra­ted that con­tain infor­ma­ti­on about the age, gen­der and inte­rests of the site visi­tors. This data comes from inte­rest-based adver­ti­sing by Goog­le as well as from visi­tor data from third par­ties. This data can­not be assi­gned to a spe­ci­fic per­son. You can dis­able this fea­ture at any time in the ad set­tings in your Goog­le Account or gene­ral­ly pro­hi­bit the collec­tion of your data by Goog­le Ana­ly­tics as descri­bed in the “Opting out of data collec­tion” section.
etracker

Our web­site uses the ana­ly­sis ser­vice etra­cker. The pro­vi­der is etra­cker GmbH, Ers­te Brun­nen­stra­ße 1, 20459 Ham­burg, Ger­ma­ny. User pro­files can be crea­ted from the data under a pseud­onym. Coo­kies can be used for this pur­po­se. Coo­kies are small text files that are stored local­ly in the cache of your Inter­net brow­ser. The coo­kies make it pos­si­ble to reco­gni­ze your brow­ser again. The data collec­ted using etra­cker tech­no­lo­gies will not be used to per­so­nal­ly iden­ti­fy visi­tors to our web­site without the sepa­r­ate­ly gran­ted con­sent of the per­son con­cer­ned and will not be mer­ged with per­so­nal data about the bea­rer of the pseudonym.

etra­cker coo­kies remain on your end device until you dele­te them.

The sto­rage of etra­cker coo­kies is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the anony­mi­zed ana­ly­sis of user beha­vi­or in order to opti­mi­ze both his web­site and his advertising.

You can object to the collec­tion and sto­rage of data at any time with effect for the future. In order to object to the future collec­tion and sto­rage of your visi­tor data, you can obtain an opt-out coo­kie from etra­cker by cli­cking on the fol­lowing link. This will ensu­re that no visi­tor data from your brow­ser will be collec­ted and stored by etra­cker in the future: https://www.etracker.de/privacy?et=V23Jbb.

This will set an opt-out coo­kie with the name “cnt­coo­kie” from etra­cker. Plea­se do not dele­te this coo­kie as long as you wish to main­tain your opt-out. Fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on can be found in the etra­cker data pro­tec­tion poli­cy: https://www.etracker.com/de/datenschutz.html.

Goog­le AdSense

This web­site uses Goog­le AdSen­se, a ser­vice for the inte­gra­ti­on of adver­ti­se­ments of Goog­le Inc. (“Goog­le”). Pro­vi­der is Goog­le Inc, 1600 Amphi­theat­re Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043, USA.

Goog­le AdSen­se uses so-cal­led “coo­kies”, text files which are stored on your com­pu­ter and which enab­le an ana­ly­sis of the use of the web­site. Goog­le AdSen­se also uses so-cal­led web beacons (invi­si­ble gra­phics). Through the­se web beacons, infor­ma­ti­on such as visi­tor traf­fic on the­se pages can be evaluated.

The infor­ma­ti­on gene­ra­ted by coo­kies and web beacons about the use of this web­site (inclu­ding your IP address) and the deli­very of adver­ti­sing for­mats are trans­fer­red to a Goog­le ser­ver in the USA and stored the­re. This infor­ma­ti­on may be pas­sed on by Goog­le to con­trac­tu­al part­ners of Goog­le. Howe­ver, Goog­le will not mer­ge your IP address with other data stored by you.

The sto­rage of AdSen­se coo­kies is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the ana­ly­sis of user beha­vi­or in order to opti­mi­ze both his web­site and his advertising.

By using this web­site, you agree to the pro­ces­sing of the data collec­ted about you by Goog­le in the man­ner and for the pur­po­se descri­bed above.

Goog­le Ana­ly­tics Remarketing

Our web­sites use the func­tions of Goog­le Ana­ly­tics Remar­ke­ting in con­junc­tion with the cross-device func­tions of Goog­le AdWords and Goog­le Dou­ble­Click. The pro­vi­der is Goog­le Inc, 1600 Amphi­theat­re Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043, USA.

This fea­ture allows adver­ti­sing audi­en­ces crea­ted with Goog­le Ana­ly­tics Remar­ke­ting to be lin­ked to the cross-device capa­bi­li­ties of Goog­le AdWords and Goog­le Dou­ble­Click. In this way, inte­rest-based, per­so­na­li­zed adver­ti­sing messages that have been cus­to­mi­zed for you on one end device (e.g. cell pho­ne) can also be dis­play­ed on ano­t­her of your end devices (e.g. tablet or PC) depen­ding on your pre­vious usa­ge and sur­fing beha­vi­or on that device.

If you have given your con­sent, Goog­le will link your web and app brow­sing histo­ry to your Goog­le Account for this pur­po­se. In this way, the same per­so­na­li­zed adver­ti­sing messages can be dis­play­ed on any device you sign in with your Goog­le Account.

To sup­port this fea­ture, Goog­le Ana­ly­tics collects Goog­le-authen­ti­ca­ted user IDs that are tem­pora­ri­ly lin­ked to our Goog­le Ana­ly­tics data to defi­ne and crea­te audi­en­ces for cross-device advertising.

You can opt-out of cross-device remarketing/targeting per­ma­nent­ly by deac­ti­vat­ing per­so­na­li­zed adver­ti­sing in your Goog­le Account, fol­lowing this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.

The aggre­ga­ti­on of the collec­ted data in your Goog­le Account is based sole­ly on your con­sent, which you can give or with­draw to Goog­le (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). For data collec­tion pro­ces­ses that are not mer­ged into your Goog­le Account (e.g. becau­se you do not have a Goog­le Account or have objec­ted to the mer­ging), the collec­tion of data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest ari­ses from the fact that the web­site ope­ra­tor has an inte­rest in the anony­mi­zed ana­ly­sis of web­site visi­tors for adver­ti­sing purposes.

Fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on and the data pro­tec­tion regu­la­ti­ons can be found in the Goog­le data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­on at: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/.

Goog­le AdWords and Goog­le Con­ver­si­on Tracking

This web­site uses Goog­le AdWords. AdWords is an online adver­ti­sing pro­gram of Goog­le Inc, 1600 Amphi­theat­re Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043, United Sta­tes (“Goog­le”).

In the con­text of Goog­le AdWords we use the so-cal­led con­ver­si­on tracking. When you click on an ad pla­ced by Goog­le, a coo­kie is set for con­ver­si­on tracking. Coo­kies are small text files that the Inter­net brow­ser stores on the user’s com­pu­ter. The­se coo­kies expi­re after 30 days and are not used to per­so­nal­ly iden­ti­fy users. If the user visits cer­tain pages of this web­site and the coo­kie has not expi­red, Goog­le and we can reco­gni­ze that the user cli­cked on the ad and was redi­rec­ted to that page.

Each Goog­le AdWords cus­to­mer recei­ves a dif­fe­rent coo­kie. The coo­kies can­not be tra­cked through the web­sites of AdWords cus­to­mers. The infor­ma­ti­on collec­ted through the con­ver­si­on coo­kie is used to com­pi­le con­ver­si­on sta­tis­tics for AdWords cus­to­mers who have opted in to con­ver­si­on tracking. Cus­to­mers are told the total num­ber of users who cli­cked on their ad and were redi­rec­ted to a page with a con­ver­si­on tracking tag. Howe­ver, they do not recei­ve infor­ma­ti­on that per­so­nal­ly iden­ti­fies users. If you do not wish to par­ti­ci­pa­te in tracking, you can opt-out of this use by slight­ly dis­ab­ling the Goog­le con­ver­si­on tracking coo­kie on your web brow­ser under User Pre­fe­ren­ces. You will then not be inclu­ded in the con­ver­si­on tracking statistics.

The sto­rage of “con­ver­si­on coo­kies” is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the ana­ly­sis of user beha­vi­or in order to opti­mi­ze both his web­site and his advertising.

More infor­ma­ti­on on Goog­le AdWords and Goog­le Con­ver­si­on Tracking can be found in the Goog­le data pro­tec­tion regu­la­ti­ons: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.

You can set your brow­ser to inform you when coo­kies are set and to allow coo­kies only in indi­vi­du­al cases, to exclu­de the accep­t­ance of coo­kies for cer­tain cases or in gene­ral, and to acti­va­te the auto­ma­tic dele­ti­on of coo­kies when the brow­ser is clo­sed. If you deac­ti­va­te coo­kies, the func­tio­n­a­li­ty of this web­site may be limited.
Goog­le reCAPTCHA

We use “Goog­le reCAP­T­CHA” (her­ein­af­ter “reCAP­T­CHA”) on our web­sites. The pro­vi­der is Goog­le Inc, 1600 Amphi­theat­re Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043, USA (“Goog­le”).

The pur­po­se of reCAP­T­CHA is to check whe­ther the data input on our web­sites (e.g. in a con­ta­ct form) is done by a human being or by an auto­ma­ted pro­gram. For this pur­po­se, reCAP­T­CHA ana­ly­zes the beha­vi­or of the web­site visi­tor based on various cha­rac­te­ris­tics. This ana­ly­sis starts auto­ma­ti­cal­ly as soon as the web­site visi­tor enters the web­site. For ana­ly­sis pur­po­ses, reCAP­T­CHA eva­lua­tes various infor­ma­ti­on (e.g. IP address, time spent on the web­site or mou­se move­ments made by the user). The data collec­ted during the ana­ly­sis is for­war­ded to Google.

The reCAP­T­CHA ana­ly­ses run com­ple­te­ly in the back­ground. Web­site visi­tors are not noti­fied that an ana­ly­sis is taking place.

The data pro­ces­sing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in pro­tec­ting his web offers from abu­si­ve auto­ma­ted spy­ing and from SPAM.

Fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on about Goog­le reCAP­T­CHA and the Goog­le pri­va­cy poli­cy can be found at the fol­lowing links: https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and https://www.google.com/recaptcha/intro/android.html.

 

Face­book Pixel

Our web­site uses the visi­tor action pixel of Face­book, Face­book Inc., 1601 S. Cali­for­nia Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Face­book”) to mea­su­re conversion.

This allows us to track the beha­vi­or of site visi­tors after they have cli­cked on a Face­book ad to be direc­ted to the provider’s web­site. This allows the effec­ti­ve­ness of the Face­book Ads to be eva­lua­ted for sta­tis­ti­cal and mar­ket rese­arch pur­po­ses and to opti­mi­ze future adver­ti­sing efforts.

The collec­ted data is anony­mous to us as the ope­ra­tor of this web­site, we can­not draw any con­clu­si­ons about the iden­ti­ty of the users. Howe­ver, the data is stored and pro­ces­sed by Face­book so that a con­nec­tion to the respec­ti­ve user pro­fi­le is pos­si­ble and Face­book can use the data for its own adver­ti­sing pur­po­ses, in accordance with the Face­book Data Usa­ge Poli­cy. This allows Face­book to enab­le the pla­ce­ment of adver­ti­se­ments on pages of Face­book and out­side of Face­book. This use of the data can­not be influ­en­ced by us as a site operator.

You can find fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on on the pro­tec­tion of your pri­va­cy in the Face­book data pro­tec­tion infor­ma­ti­on: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

You can also dis­able the remar­ke­ting fea­ture “Cus­tom Audi­en­ces” in the Adver­ti­sing Set­tings sec­tion of https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen. You must be log­ged in to Face­book to do this.

If you do not have a Face­book account, you can dis­able usa­ge-based adver­ti­sing from Face­book on the Euro­pean Inter­ac­ti­ve Digi­tal Adver­ti­sing Alli­an­ce web­site: https://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/.

6th News­let­ter
News­let­ter data

If you would like to recei­ve the news­let­ter offe­red on the web­site, we need an e‑mail address from you as well as infor­ma­ti­on that allows us to veri­fy that you are the owner of the e‑mail address pro­vi­ded and that you agree to recei­ve the news­let­ter. Fur­ther data will not be collec­ted or only on a vol­un­ta­ry basis. We use the­se data exclu­si­ve­ly for sen­ding the reques­ted infor­ma­ti­on and do not pass them on to third parties.

The pro­ces­sing of the data ent­e­red in the news­let­ter regis­tra­ti­on form is based exclu­si­ve­ly on your con­sent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revo­ke your con­sent to the sto­rage of the data, the e‑mail address as well as its use for sen­ding the news­let­ter at any time, e.g. via the “unsub­scri­be” link in the news­let­ter. The lega­li­ty of the data pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons alrea­dy car­ri­ed out remains unaf­fec­ted by the revocation.

The data you have pro­vi­ded us with for the pur­po­se of sub­scrib­ing to the news­let­ter will be stored by us until you unsub­scri­be from the news­let­ter and dele­ted after you have can­cel­led your sub­scrip­ti­on. Data that has been stored by us for other pur­po­ses (e.g. e‑mail addres­ses for the mem­ber area) remains unaffected.
MailChimp

This web­site uses the ser­vices of Mail­Chimp for sen­ding news­let­ters. Pro­vi­der is the Rocket Sci­ence Group LLC, 675 Pon­ce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlan­ta, GA 30308, USA.

Mail­Chimp is a ser­vice that can be used to orga­ni­ze and ana­ly­ze the sen­ding of news­let­ters. If you enter data for the pur­po­se of recei­ving news­let­ters (e.g. e‑mail address), this data is stored on the ser­vers of Mail­Chimp in the USA.

Mail­Chimp is cer­ti­fied accord­ing to the “EU-US-Pri­va­cy-Shield”. The “Pri­va­cy-Shield” is an agree­ment bet­ween the Euro­pean Uni­on (EU) and the USA, which is inten­ded to ensu­re com­pli­an­ce with Euro­pean data pro­tec­tion stan­dards in the USA.

With the help of Mail­Chimp we can ana­ly­ze our news­let­ter cam­pai­gns. When you open an e‑mail sent with Mail­Chimp, a file con­tai­ned in the e‑mail (so-cal­led web-beacon) con­nects to the ser­vers of Mail­Chimp in the USA. This way it can be deter­mi­ned whe­ther a news­let­ter mes­sa­ge was ope­ned and which links were cli­cked on, if any. Fur­ther­mo­re, tech­ni­cal infor­ma­ti­on is collec­ted (e.g. time of retrie­val, IP address, brow­ser type and ope­ra­ting sys­tem). This infor­ma­ti­on can­not be assi­gned to the respec­ti­ve news­let­ter reci­pi­ent. It is used exclu­si­ve­ly for sta­tis­ti­cal ana­ly­sis of news­let­ter cam­pai­gns. The results of the­se ana­ly­ses can be used to bet­ter adapt future news­let­ters to the inte­rests of the recipients.

If you do not want to recei­ve ana­ly­sis by Mail­Chimp, you must unsub­scri­be from the news­let­ter. For this pur­po­se we pro­vi­de a link in every news­let­ter mes­sa­ge. You can also unsub­scri­be direct­ly on the website.

The data pro­ces­sing is based on your con­sent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revo­ke this con­sent at any time by unsub­scrib­ing the news­let­ter. The lega­li­ty of the data pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons that have alrea­dy taken place remains unaf­fec­ted by the revocation.

The data that you pro­vi­de us with for the pur­po­se of sub­scrib­ing to the news­let­ter will be stored by us until you unsub­scri­be from the news­let­ter and will be dele­ted from our ser­vers as well as from the ser­vers of Mail­Chimp after the can­cel­la­ti­on of the news­let­ter. Data which is stored for other pur­po­ses (e.g. e‑mail addres­ses for the mem­ber area) remains unaffected.

You can find more details in the pri­va­cy poli­cy of Mail­Chimp at: https://mailchimp.com/legal/terms/.

Con­clu­si­on of a Data-Processing-Agreement

We have signed a so-cal­led “Data-Pro­ces­sing-Agree­ment” with Mail­Chimp, in which we com­mit Mail­Chimp to pro­tect the data of our cus­to­mers and not to pass them on to third par­ties. This agree­ment can be view­ed under the fol­lowing link: https://mailchimp.com/legal/forms/data-processing-agreement/sample-agreement/.
