Pri­va­cy Poli­cy

We are very delight­ed that you have shown inte­rest in our enter­pri­se. Data pro­tec­tion is of a par­ti­cu­lar­ly high prio­ri­ty for the manage­ment of the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting. The use of the Inter­net pages of the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting is pos­si­ble wit­hout any indi­ca­ti­on of per­so­nal data; howe­ver, if a data sub­ject wants to use spe­cial enter­pri­se ser­vices via our web­site, pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data could beco­me necessa­ry. If the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data is necessa­ry and the­re is no sta­tuto­ry basis for such pro­ces­sing, we gene­ral­ly obtain con­sent from the data sub­ject.

The pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or tele­pho­ne num­ber of a data sub­ject shall always be in line with the Gene­ral Data Pro­tec­tion Regu­la­ti­on (GDPR), and in accordance with the coun­try-spe­ci­fic data pro­tec­tion regu­la­ti­ons app­li­ca­ble to the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting. By means of this data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­on, our enter­pri­se would like to inform the gene­ral public of the natu­re, scope, and pur­po­se of the per­so­nal data we collect, use and pro­cess. Fur­ther­mo­re, data sub­jec­ts are infor­med, by means of this data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­on, of the rights to which they are ent­it­led.

As the con­trol­ler, the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting has imple­men­ted nume­rous tech­ni­cal and orga­ni­za­tio­nal mea­su­res to ensu­re the most com­ple­te pro­tec­tion of per­so­nal data pro­ces­sed through this web­site. Howe­ver, Inter­net-based data trans­mis­si­ons may in princip­le have secu­ri­ty gaps, so abso­lu­te pro­tec­tion may not be gua­ran­te­ed. For this rea­son, every data sub­ject is free to trans­fer per­so­nal data to us via alter­na­ti­ve means, e.g. by tele­pho­ne.

1. Defi­ni­ti­ons

The data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­on of the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting is based on the terms used by the European legis­la­tor for the adop­ti­on of the Gene­ral Data Pro­tec­tion Regu­la­ti­on (GDPR). Our data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­on should be legi­ble and under­stand­a­ble for the gene­ral public, as well as our custo­mers and busi­ness part­ners. To ensu­re this, we would like to first exp­lain the ter­mi­no­lo­gy used.

In this data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­on, we use, inter alia, the fol­lo­wing terms:

  • a) Per­so­nal data

    Per­so­nal data means any infor­ma­ti­on rela­ting to an iden­ti­fied or iden­ti­fia­ble natu­ral per­son (“data sub­ject”). An iden­ti­fia­ble natu­ral per­son is one who can be iden­ti­fied, direc­t­ly or indi­rec­t­ly, in par­ti­cu­lar by refe­rence to an iden­ti­fier such as a name, an iden­ti­fi­ca­ti­on num­ber, loca­ti­on data, an online iden­ti­fier or to one or more fac­tors spe­ci­fic to the phy­si­cal, phy­sio­lo­gi­cal, gene­tic, men­tal, eco­no­mic, cul­tu­ral or soci­al iden­ti­ty of that natu­ral per­son.

  • b) Data sub­ject

    Data sub­ject is any iden­ti­fied or iden­ti­fia­ble natu­ral per­son, who­se per­so­nal data is pro­ces­sed by the con­trol­ler respon­si­ble for the pro­ces­sing.

  • c) Pro­ces­sing

    Pro­ces­sing is any ope­ra­ti­on or set of ope­ra­ti­ons which is per­for­med on per­so­nal data or on sets of per­so­nal data, whe­ther or not by auto­ma­ted means, such as collec­tion, record­ing, orga­ni­sa­ti­on, struc­tu­ring, sto­rage, adap­tati­on or alte­ra­ti­on, retrie­val, con­sul­ta­ti­on, use, dis­clo­sure by trans­mis­si­on, dis­se­mi­na­ti­on or other­wi­se making avail­ab­le, align­ment or com­bi­na­ti­on, restric­tion, era­su­re or dest­ruc­tion.

  • d) Restric­tion of pro­ces­sing

    Restric­tion of pro­ces­sing is the mar­king of stored per­so­nal data with the aim of limi­t­ing their pro­ces­sing in the future.

  • e) Pro­filing

    Pro­filing means any form of auto­ma­ted pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data con­sis­ting of the use of per­so­nal data to eva­lua­te cer­tain per­so­nal aspec­ts rela­ting to a natu­ral per­son, in par­ti­cu­lar to ana­ly­se or pre­dict aspec­ts con­cer­ning that natu­ral person’s per­for­mance at work, eco­no­mic situa­ti­on, health, per­so­nal pre­fe­ren­ces, inte­rests, relia­bi­li­ty, beha­viour, loca­ti­on or move­ments.

  • f) Pseud­ony­mi­sa­ti­on

    Pseud­ony­mi­sa­ti­on is the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data in such a man­ner that the per­so­nal data can no lon­ger be attri­bu­t­ed to a spe­ci­fic data sub­ject wit­hout the use of addi­tio­nal infor­ma­ti­on, pro­vi­ded that such addi­tio­nal infor­ma­ti­on is kept sepa­r­ate­ly and is sub­ject to tech­ni­cal and orga­ni­sa­tio­nal mea­su­res to ensu­re that the per­so­nal data are not attri­bu­t­ed to an iden­ti­fied or iden­ti­fia­ble natu­ral per­son.

  • g) Con­trol­ler or con­trol­ler respon­si­ble for the pro­ces­sing

    Con­trol­ler or con­trol­ler respon­si­ble for the pro­ces­sing is the natu­ral or legal per­son, public aut­ho­ri­ty, agen­cy or other body which, alo­ne or joint­ly with others, deter­mi­nes the pur­po­ses and means of the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data; whe­re the pur­po­ses and means of such pro­ces­sing are deter­mi­ned by Uni­on or Mem­ber Sta­te law, the con­trol­ler or the spe­ci­fic cri­te­ria for its nomi­na­ti­on may be pro­vi­ded for by Uni­on or Mem­ber Sta­te law.

  • h) Pro­ces­sor

    Pro­ces­sor is a natu­ral or legal per­son, public aut­ho­ri­ty, agen­cy or other body which pro­ces­ses per­so­nal data on behalf of the con­trol­ler.

  • i) Reci­pi­ent

    Reci­pi­ent is a natu­ral or legal per­son, public aut­ho­ri­ty, agen­cy or ano­t­her body, to which the per­so­nal data are dis­c­lo­sed, whe­ther a third par­ty or not. Howe­ver, public aut­ho­ri­ties which may recei­ve per­so­nal data in the frame­work of a par­ti­cu­lar inqui­ry in accordance with Uni­on or Mem­ber Sta­te law shall not be regar­ded as reci­pi­ents; the pro­ces­sing of tho­se data by tho­se public aut­ho­ri­ties shall be in com­pli­an­ce with the app­li­ca­ble data pro­tec­tion rules accord­ing to the pur­po­ses of the pro­ces­sing.

  • j) Third par­ty

    Third par­ty is a natu­ral or legal per­son, public aut­ho­ri­ty, agen­cy or body other than the data sub­ject, con­trol­ler, pro­ces­sor and per­sons who, under the direct aut­ho­ri­ty of the con­trol­ler or pro­ces­sor, are aut­ho­ri­sed to pro­cess per­so­nal data.

  • k) Con­sent

    Con­sent of the data sub­ject is any free­ly given, spe­ci­fic, infor­med and unam­bi­guous indi­ca­ti­on of the data subject’s wis­hes by which he or she, by a state­ment or by a clear affir­ma­ti­ve action, signi­fies agree­ment to the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data rela­ting to him or her.

2. Name and Address of the con­trol­ler

Con­trol­ler for the pur­po­ses of the Gene­ral Data Pro­tec­tion Regu­la­ti­on (GDPR), other data pro­tec­tion laws app­li­ca­ble in Mem­ber sta­tes of the European Uni­on and other pro­vi­si­ons rela­ted to data pro­tec­tion is:

3. Coo­kies

The Inter­net pages of the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting use coo­kies. Coo­kies are text files that are stored in a com­pu­ter sys­tem via an Inter­net brow­ser.

Many Inter­net sites and ser­vers use coo­kies. Many coo­kies con­tain a so-cal­led coo­kie ID. A coo­kie ID is a uni­que iden­ti­fier of the coo­kie. It con­sists of a cha­rac­ter string through which Inter­net pages and ser­vers can be assi­gned to the spe­ci­fic Inter­net brow­ser in which the coo­kie was stored. This allows visi­ted Inter­net sites and ser­vers to dif­fe­ren­tia­te the indi­vi­du­al brow­ser of the dats sub­ject from other Inter­net brow­sers that con­tain other coo­kies. A spe­ci­fic Inter­net brow­ser can be reco­gni­zed and iden­ti­fied using the uni­que coo­kie ID.

Through the use of coo­kies, the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting can pro­vi­de the users of this web­site with more user-fri­end­ly ser­vices that would not be pos­si­ble wit­hout the coo­kie set­ting.

By means of a coo­kie, the infor­ma­ti­on and offers on our web­site can be opti­mi­zed with the user in mind. Coo­kies allow us, as pre­vious­ly men­tio­ned, to reco­gni­ze our web­site users. The pur­po­se of this reco­gni­ti­on is to make it easier for users to uti­li­ze our web­site. The web­site user that uses coo­kies, e.g. does not have to enter access data each time the web­site is acces­sed, becau­se this is taken over by the web­site, and the coo­kie is thus stored on the user’s com­pu­ter sys­tem. Ano­t­her examp­le is the coo­kie of a shop­ping cart in an online shop. The online store remem­bers the arti­cles that a custo­mer has pla­ced in the vir­tu­al shop­ping cart via a coo­kie.

The data sub­ject may, at any time, pre­vent the set­ting of coo­kies through our web­site by means of a cor­re­spon­ding set­ting of the Inter­net brow­ser used, and may thus per­man­ent­ly deny the set­ting of coo­kies. Fur­ther­mo­re, alrea­dy set coo­kies may be dele­ted at any time via an Inter­net brow­ser or other soft­ware pro­grams. This is pos­si­ble in all popu­lar Inter­net brow­sers. If the data sub­ject deac­tiva­tes the set­ting of coo­kies in the Inter­net brow­ser used, not all func­tions of our web­site may be ent­i­re­ly usable.

4. Collec­tion of gene­ral data and infor­ma­ti­on

The web­site of the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting collec­ts a series of gene­ral data and infor­ma­ti­on when a data sub­ject or auto­ma­ted sys­tem calls up the web­site. This gene­ral data and infor­ma­ti­on are stored in the ser­ver log files. Collec­ted may be (1) the brow­ser types and ver­si­ons used, (2) the ope­ra­ting sys­tem used by the acces­sing sys­tem, (3) the web­site from which an acces­sing sys­tem reaches our web­site (so-cal­led refer­rers), (4) the sub-web­sites, (5) the date and time of access to the Inter­net site, (6) an Inter­net pro­to­col address (IP address), (7) the Inter­net ser­vice pro­vi­der of the acces­sing sys­tem, and (8) any other simi­lar data and infor­ma­ti­on that may be used in the event of attacks on our infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tems.

When using the­se gene­ral data and infor­ma­ti­on, the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting does not draw any con­clu­si­ons about the data sub­ject. Rather, this infor­ma­ti­on is nee­ded to (1) deli­ver the con­tent of our web­site cor­rec­t­ly, (2) opti­mi­ze the con­tent of our web­site as well as its adver­ti­se­ment, (3) ensu­re the long-term via­bi­li­ty of our infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tems and web­site tech­no­lo­gy, and (4) pro­vi­de law enforce­ment aut­ho­ri­ties with the infor­ma­ti­on necessa­ry for cri­mi­nal pro­se­cu­ti­on in case of a cyber-attack. The­re­fo­re, the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting ana­ly­zes anony­mously collec­ted data and infor­ma­ti­on sta­tis­ti­cal­ly, with the aim of increa­sing the data pro­tec­tion and data secu­ri­ty of our enter­pri­se, and to ensu­re an opti­mal level of pro­tec­tion for the per­so­nal data we pro­cess. The anony­mous data of the ser­ver log files are stored sepa­r­ate­ly from all per­so­nal data pro­vi­ded by a data sub­ject.

5. Regis­tra­ti­on on our web­site

The data sub­ject has the pos­si­bi­li­ty to regis­ter on the web­site of the con­trol­ler with the indi­ca­ti­on of per­so­nal data. Which per­so­nal data are trans­mit­ted to the con­trol­ler is deter­mi­ned by the respec­tive input mask used for the regis­tra­ti­on. The per­so­nal data ent­e­red by the data sub­ject are collec­ted and stored exclu­si­ve­ly for inter­nal use by the con­trol­ler, and for his own pur­po­ses. The con­trol­ler may request trans­fer to one or more pro­ces­sors (e.g. a par­cel ser­vice) that also uses per­so­nal data for an inter­nal pur­po­se which is attri­bu­ta­ble to the con­trol­ler.

By regis­te­ring on the web­site of the con­trol­ler, the IP address—assigned by the Inter­net ser­vice pro­vi­der (ISP) and used by the data subject—date, and time of the regis­tra­ti­on are also stored. The sto­rage of this data takes place against the back­ground that this is the only way to pre­vent the misu­se of our ser­vices, and, if necessa­ry, to make it pos­si­ble to inves­ti­ga­te com­mit­ted offen­ses. Inso­far, the sto­rage of this data is necessa­ry to secu­re the con­trol­ler. This data is not pas­sed on to third par­ties unless the­re is a sta­tuto­ry obli­ga­ti­on to pass on the data, or if the trans­fer ser­ves the aim of cri­mi­nal pro­se­cu­ti­on.

The regis­tra­ti­on of the data sub­ject, with the vol­un­ta­ry indi­ca­ti­on of per­so­nal data, is inten­ded to enab­le the con­trol­ler to offer the data sub­ject con­tents or ser­vices that may only be offe­red to regis­te­red users due to the natu­re of the mat­ter in ques­ti­on. Regis­te­red per­sons are free to chan­ge the per­so­nal data spe­ci­fied during the regis­tra­ti­on at any time, or to have them com­ple­te­ly dele­ted from the data stock of the con­trol­ler.

The data con­trol­ler shall, at any time, pro­vi­de infor­ma­ti­on upon request to each data sub­ject as to what per­so­nal data are stored about the data sub­ject. In addi­ti­on, the data con­trol­ler shall cor­rect or era­se per­so­nal data at the request or indi­ca­ti­on of the data sub­ject, inso­far as the­re are no sta­tuto­ry sto­rage obli­ga­ti­ons. The ent­i­re­ty of the controller’s employees are avail­ab­le to the data sub­ject in this respect as con­tact per­sons.

6. Sub­scrip­ti­on to our news­let­ters

On the web­site of the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting, users are given the oppor­tu­ni­ty to sub­scri­be to our enterprise’s news­let­ter. The input mask used for this pur­po­se deter­mi­nes what per­so­nal data are trans­mit­ted, as well as when the news­let­ter is orde­red from the con­trol­ler.

The Trau­mann Con­sul­ting informs its custo­mers and busi­ness part­ners regu­lar­ly by means of a news­let­ter about enter­pri­se offers. The enterprise’s news­let­ter may only be recei­ved by the data sub­ject if (1) the data sub­ject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data sub­ject regis­ters for the news­let­ter ship­ping. A con­fir­ma­ti­on e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address regis­te­red by a data sub­ject for the first time for news­let­ter ship­ping, for legal rea­sons, in the dou­ble opt-in pro­ce­du­re. This con­fir­ma­ti­on e-mail is used to pro­ve whe­ther the owner of the e-mail address as the data sub­ject is aut­ho­ri­zed to recei­ve the news­let­ter.

During the regis­tra­ti­on for the news­let­ter, we also store the IP address of the com­pu­ter sys­tem assi­gned by the Inter­net ser­vice pro­vi­der (ISP) and used by the data sub­ject at the time of the regis­tra­ti­on, as well as the date and time of the regis­tra­ti­on. The collec­tion of this data is necessa­ry in order to under­stand the (pos­si­ble) misu­se of the e-mail address of a data sub­ject at a later date, and it the­re­fo­re ser­ves the aim of the legal pro­tec­tion of the con­trol­ler.

The per­so­nal data collec­ted as part of a regis­tra­ti­on for the news­let­ter will only be used to send our news­let­ter. In addi­ti­on, sub­scri­bers to the news­let­ter may be infor­med by e-mail, as long as this is necessa­ry for the ope­ra­ti­on of the news­let­ter ser­vice or a regis­tra­ti­on in ques­ti­on, as this could be the case in the event of modi­fi­ca­ti­ons to the news­let­ter offer, or in the event of a chan­ge in tech­ni­cal cir­cum­s­tan­ces. The­re will be no trans­fer of per­so­nal data collec­ted by the news­let­ter ser­vice to third par­ties. The sub­scrip­ti­on to our news­let­ter may be ter­mi­na­ted by the data sub­ject at any time. The con­sent to the sto­rage of per­so­nal data, which the data sub­ject has given for ship­ping the news­let­ter, may be revo­ked at any time. For the pur­po­se of revo­ca­ti­on of con­sent, a cor­re­spon­ding link is found in each news­let­ter. It is also pos­si­ble to unsub­scri­be from the news­let­ter at any time direc­t­ly on the web­site of the con­trol­ler, or to com­mu­ni­ca­te this to the con­trol­ler in a dif­fe­rent way.

7. News­let­ter-Tracking

The news­let­ter of the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting con­tains so-cal­led tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a minia­tu­re gra­phic embed­ded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML for­mat to enab­le log file record­ing and ana­ly­sis. This allows a sta­tis­ti­cal ana­ly­sis of the suc­cess or fail­u­re of online mar­ke­ting cam­pai­gns. Based on the embed­ded tracking pixel, the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting may see if and when an e-mail was ope­ned by a data sub­ject, and which links in the e-mail were cal­led up by data sub­jec­ts.

Such per­so­nal data collec­ted in the tracking pixels con­tai­ned in the news­let­ters are stored and ana­ly­zed by the con­trol­ler in order to opti­mi­ze the ship­ping of the news­let­ter, as well as to adapt the con­tent of future news­let­ters even bet­ter to the inte­rests of the data sub­ject. The­se per­so­nal data will not be pas­sed on to third par­ties. Data sub­jec­ts are at any time ent­it­led to revo­ke the respec­tive sepa­ra­te decla­ra­ti­on of con­sent issued by means of the dou­ble-opt-in pro­ce­du­re. After a revo­ca­ti­on, the­se per­so­nal data will be dele­ted by the con­trol­ler. The Trau­mann Con­sul­ting auto­ma­ti­cal­ly regards a with­dra­wal from the rece­ipt of the news­let­ter as a revo­ca­ti­on.

8. Con­tact pos­si­bi­li­ty via the web­site

The web­site of the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting con­tains infor­ma­ti­on that enab­les a quick elec­tro­nic con­tact to our enter­pri­se, as well as direct com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on with us, which also inclu­des a gene­ral address of the so-cal­led elec­tro­nic mail (e-mail address). If a data sub­ject con­tac­ts the con­trol­ler by e-mail or via a con­tact form, the per­so­nal data trans­mit­ted by the data sub­ject are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly stored. Such per­so­nal data trans­mit­ted on a vol­un­ta­ry basis by a data sub­ject to the data con­trol­ler are stored for the pur­po­se of pro­ces­sing or con­tac­ting the data sub­ject. The­re is no trans­fer of this per­so­nal data to third par­ties.

9. Sub­scrip­ti­on to comments in the blog on the web­site

The comments made in the blog of the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting may be sub­scri­bed to by third par­ties. In par­ti­cu­lar, the­re is the pos­si­bi­li­ty that a com­men­ter sub­scri­bes to the comments fol­lo­wing his comments on a par­ti­cu­lar blog post.

If a data sub­ject deci­des to sub­scri­be to the opti­on, the con­trol­ler will send an auto­ma­tic con­fir­ma­ti­on e-mail to check the dou­ble opt-in pro­ce­du­re as to whe­ther the owner of the spe­ci­fied e-mail address deci­ded in favor of this opti­on. The opti­on to sub­scri­be to comments may be ter­mi­na­ted at any time.

10. Rou­ti­ne era­su­re and blo­cking of per­so­nal data

The data con­trol­ler shall pro­cess and store the per­so­nal data of the data sub­ject only for the peri­od necessa­ry to achie­ve the pur­po­se of sto­rage, or as far as this is gran­ted by the European legis­la­tor or other legis­la­tors in laws or regu­la­ti­ons to which the con­trol­ler is sub­ject to.

If the sto­rage pur­po­se is not app­li­ca­ble, or if a sto­rage peri­od pre­scri­bed by the European legis­la­tor or ano­t­her com­pe­tent legis­la­tor expi­res, the per­so­nal data are rou­ti­ne­ly blo­cked or era­sed in accordance with legal requi­re­ments.

11. Rights of the data sub­ject

  • a) Right of con­fir­ma­ti­on

    Each data sub­ject shall have the right gran­ted by the European legis­la­tor to obtain from the con­trol­ler the con­fir­ma­ti­on as to whe­ther or not per­so­nal data con­cer­ning him or her are being pro­ces­sed. If a data sub­ject wis­hes to avail him­s­elf of this right of con­fir­ma­ti­on, he or she may, at any time, con­tact any employee of the con­trol­ler.

  • b) Right of access

    Each data sub­ject shall have the right gran­ted by the European legis­la­tor to obtain from the con­trol­ler free infor­ma­ti­on about his or her per­so­nal data stored at any time and a copy of this infor­ma­ti­on. Fur­ther­mo­re, the European direc­tives and regu­la­ti­ons grant the data sub­ject access to the fol­lo­wing infor­ma­ti­on:

    • the pur­po­ses of the pro­ces­sing;
    • the cate­go­ries of per­so­nal data con­cer­ned;
    • the reci­pi­ents or cate­go­ries of reci­pi­ents to whom the per­so­nal data have been or will be dis­c­lo­sed, in par­ti­cu­lar reci­pi­ents in third coun­tries or inter­na­tio­nal orga­ni­sa­ti­ons;
    • whe­re pos­si­ble, the envi­sa­ged peri­od for which the per­so­nal data will be stored, or, if not pos­si­ble, the cri­te­ria used to deter­mi­ne that peri­od;
    • the exis­tence of the right to request from the con­trol­ler rec­tifi­ca­ti­on or era­su­re of per­so­nal data, or restric­tion of pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data con­cer­ning the data sub­ject, or to object to such pro­ces­sing;
    • the exis­tence of the right to lodge a com­p­laint with a super­vi­so­ry aut­ho­ri­ty;
    • whe­re the per­so­nal data are not collec­ted from the data sub­ject, any avail­ab­le infor­ma­ti­on as to their source;
    • the exis­tence of auto­ma­ted decisi­on-making, inclu­ding pro­filing, refer­red to in Arti­cle 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in tho­se cases, mea­ning­ful infor­ma­ti­on about the logic invol­ved, as well as the signi­fi­can­ce and envi­sa­ged con­se­quen­ces of such pro­ces­sing for the data sub­ject.

    Fur­ther­mo­re, the data sub­ject shall have a right to obtain infor­ma­ti­on as to whe­ther per­so­nal data are trans­fer­red to a third coun­try or to an inter­na­tio­nal orga­ni­sa­ti­on. Whe­re this is the case, the data sub­ject shall have the right to be infor­med of the appro­pria­te safe­guards rela­ting to the trans­fer.

    If a data sub­ject wis­hes to avail him­s­elf of this right of access, he or she may, at any time, con­tact any employee of the con­trol­ler.

  • c) Right to rec­tifi­ca­ti­on

    Each data sub­ject shall have the right gran­ted by the European legis­la­tor to obtain from the con­trol­ler wit­hout undue delay the rec­tifi­ca­ti­on of inac­cu­ra­te per­so­nal data con­cer­ning him or her. Taking into account the pur­po­ses of the pro­ces­sing, the data sub­ject shall have the right to have incom­ple­te per­so­nal data com­ple­ted, inclu­ding by means of pro­vi­ding a sup­ple­men­ta­ry state­ment.

    If a data sub­ject wis­hes to exer­ci­se this right to rec­tifi­ca­ti­on, he or she may, at any time, con­tact any employee of the con­trol­ler.

  • d) Right to era­su­re (Right to be for­got­ten)

    Each data sub­ject shall have the right gran­ted by the European legis­la­tor to obtain from the con­trol­ler the era­su­re of per­so­nal data con­cer­ning him or her wit­hout undue delay, and the con­trol­ler shall have the obli­ga­ti­on to era­se per­so­nal data wit­hout undue delay whe­re one of the fol­lo­wing grounds app­lies, as long as the pro­ces­sing is not necessa­ry:

    • The per­so­nal data are no lon­ger necessa­ry in rela­ti­on to the pur­po­ses for which they were collec­ted or other­wi­se pro­ces­sed.
    • The data sub­ject with­draws con­sent to which the pro­ces­sing is based accord­ing to point (a) of Arti­cle 6(1) of the GDPR, or point (a) of Arti­cle 9(2) of the GDPR, and whe­re the­re is no other legal ground for the pro­ces­sing.
    • The data sub­ject objec­ts to the pro­ces­sing pur­suant to Arti­cle 21(1) of the GDPR and the­re are no over­ri­ding legi­ti­ma­te grounds for the pro­ces­sing, or the data sub­ject objec­ts to the pro­ces­sing pur­suant to Arti­cle 21(2) of the GDPR.
    • The per­so­nal data have been unlaw­ful­ly pro­ces­sed.
    • The per­so­nal data must be era­sed for com­pli­an­ce with a legal obli­ga­ti­on in Uni­on or Mem­ber Sta­te law to which the con­trol­ler is sub­ject.
    • The per­so­nal data have been collec­ted in rela­ti­on to the offer of infor­ma­ti­on socie­ty ser­vices refer­red to in Arti­cle 8(1) of the GDPR.

    If one of the afo­re­men­tio­ned rea­sons app­lies, and a data sub­ject wis­hes to request the era­su­re of per­so­nal data stored by the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting, he or she may, at any time, con­tact any employee of the con­trol­ler. An employee of Trau­mann Con­sul­ting shall prompt­ly ensu­re that the era­su­re request is com­plied with imme­dia­te­ly.

    Whe­re the con­trol­ler has made per­so­nal data public and is obli­ged pur­suant to Arti­cle 17(1) to era­se the per­so­nal data, the con­trol­ler, taking account of avail­ab­le tech­no­lo­gy and the cost of imple­men­ta­ti­on, shall take rea­son­ab­le steps, inclu­ding tech­ni­cal mea­su­res, to inform other con­trol­lers pro­ces­sing the per­so­nal data that the data sub­ject has requested era­su­re by such con­trol­lers of any links to, or copy or repli­ca­ti­on of, tho­se per­so­nal data, as far as pro­ces­sing is not requi­red. An employees of the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting will arran­ge the necessa­ry mea­su­res in indi­vi­du­al cases.

  • e) Right of restric­tion of pro­ces­sing

    Each data sub­ject shall have the right gran­ted by the European legis­la­tor to obtain from the con­trol­ler restric­tion of pro­ces­sing whe­re one of the fol­lo­wing app­lies:

    • The accu­ra­cy of the per­so­nal data is con­tested by the data sub­ject, for a peri­od enab­ling the con­trol­ler to veri­fy the accu­ra­cy of the per­so­nal data.
    • The pro­ces­sing is unlaw­ful and the data sub­ject oppo­ses the era­su­re of the per­so­nal data and requests ins­tead the restric­tion of their use ins­tead.
    • The con­trol­ler no lon­ger needs the per­so­nal data for the pur­po­ses of the pro­ces­sing, but they are requi­red by the data sub­ject for the estab­lish­ment, exer­ci­se or defence of legal claims.
    • The data sub­ject has objec­ted to pro­ces­sing pur­suant to Arti­cle 21(1) of the GDPR pen­ding the veri­fi­ca­ti­on whe­ther the legi­ti­ma­te grounds of the con­trol­ler over­ri­de tho­se of the data sub­ject.

    If one of the afo­re­men­tio­ned con­di­ti­ons is met, and a data sub­ject wis­hes to request the restric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data stored by the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting, he or she may at any time con­tact any employee of the con­trol­ler. The employee of the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting will arran­ge the restric­tion of the pro­ces­sing.

  • f) Right to data por­ta­bi­li­ty

    Each data sub­ject shall have the right gran­ted by the European legis­la­tor, to recei­ve the per­so­nal data con­cer­ning him or her, which was pro­vi­ded to a con­trol­ler, in a struc­tu­red, com­mon­ly used and machi­ne-read­a­ble for­mat. He or she shall have the right to trans­mit tho­se data to ano­t­her con­trol­ler wit­hout hin­dran­ce from the con­trol­ler to which the per­so­nal data have been pro­vi­ded, as long as the pro­ces­sing is based on con­sent pur­suant to point (a) of Arti­cle 6(1) of the GDPR or point (a) of Arti­cle 9(2) of the GDPR, or on a con­tract pur­suant to point (b) of Arti­cle 6(1) of the GDPR, and the pro­ces­sing is car­ri­ed out by auto­ma­ted means, as long as the pro­ces­sing is not necessa­ry for the per­for­mance of a task car­ri­ed out in the public inte­rest or in the exer­ci­se of offi­ci­al aut­ho­ri­ty vested in the con­trol­ler.

    Fur­ther­mo­re, in exer­cis­ing his or her right to data por­ta­bi­li­ty pur­suant to Arti­cle 20(1) of the GDPR, the data sub­ject shall have the right to have per­so­nal data trans­mit­ted direc­t­ly from one con­trol­ler to ano­t­her, whe­re tech­ni­cal­ly fea­si­ble and when doing so does not adver­se­ly affect the rights and free­doms of others.

    In order to assert the right to data por­ta­bi­li­ty, the data sub­ject may at any time con­tact any employee of the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting.

  • g) Right to object

    Each data sub­ject shall have the right gran­ted by the European legis­la­tor to object, on grounds rela­ting to his or her par­ti­cu­lar situa­ti­on, at any time, to pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data con­cer­ning him or her, which is based on point (e) or (f) of Arti­cle 6(1) of the GDPR. This also app­lies to pro­filing based on the­se pro­vi­si­ons.

    The Trau­mann Con­sul­ting shall no lon­ger pro­cess the per­so­nal data in the event of the objec­tion, unless we can demons­tra­te 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.

    If the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting pro­ces­ses per­so­nal data for direct mar­ke­ting pur­po­ses, the data sub­ject shall have the right to object at any time to pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data con­cer­ning him or her for such mar­ke­ting. This app­lies to pro­filing to the extent that it is rela­ted to such direct mar­ke­ting. If the data sub­ject objec­ts to the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting to the pro­ces­sing for direct mar­ke­ting pur­po­ses, the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting will no lon­ger pro­cess the per­so­nal data for the­se pur­po­ses.

    In addi­ti­on, the data sub­ject has the right, on grounds rela­ting to his or her par­ti­cu­lar situa­ti­on, to object to pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data con­cer­ning him or her by the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting for sci­en­ti­fic or his­to­ri­cal rese­arch pur­po­ses, or for sta­tis­ti­cal pur­po­ses pur­suant to Arti­cle 89(1) of the GDPR, unless the pro­ces­sing is necessa­ry for the per­for­mance of a task car­ri­ed out for rea­sons of public inte­rest.

    In order to exer­ci­se the right to object, the data sub­ject may con­tact any employee of the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting. In addi­ti­on, the data sub­ject is free in the con­text of the use of infor­ma­ti­on socie­ty ser­vices, and not­wi­th­stan­ding Direc­tive 2002/58/EC, to use his or her right to object by auto­ma­ted means using tech­ni­cal spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­ons.

  • h) Auto­ma­ted indi­vi­du­al decisi­on-making, inclu­ding pro­filing

    Each data sub­ject shall have the right gran­ted by the European legis­la­tor not to be sub­ject to a decisi­on based sole­ly on auto­ma­ted pro­ces­sing, inclu­ding pro­filing, which pro­du­ces legal effec­ts con­cer­ning him or her, or simi­lar­ly signi­fi­cant­ly affec­ts him or her, as long as the decisi­on (1) is not is necessa­ry for ent­e­ring into, or the per­for­mance of, a con­tract bet­ween the data sub­ject and a data con­trol­ler, or (2) is not aut­ho­ri­sed by Uni­on or Mem­ber Sta­te law to which the con­trol­ler is sub­ject and which also lays down sui­ta­ble mea­su­res to safe­guard the data subject’s rights and free­doms and legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests, or (3) is not based on the data subject’s expli­cit con­sent.

    If the decisi­on (1) is necessa­ry for ent­e­ring into, or the per­for­mance of, a con­tract bet­ween the data sub­ject and a data con­trol­ler, or (2) it is based on the data subject’s expli­cit con­sent, the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting shall imple­ment sui­ta­ble mea­su­res to safe­guard the data subject’s rights and free­doms and legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests, at least the right to obtain human inter­ven­ti­on on the part of the con­trol­ler, to express his or her point of view and con­test the decisi­on.

    If the data sub­ject wis­hes to exer­ci­se the rights con­cer­ning auto­ma­ted indi­vi­du­al decisi­on-making, he or she may, at any time, con­tact any employee of the Trau­mann Con­sul­ting.

  • i) Right to with­draw data pro­tec­tion con­sent

    Each data sub­ject shall have the right gran­ted by the European legis­la­tor to with­draw his or her con­sent to pro­ces­sing of his or her per­so­nal data at any time.

12. Data Pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons about the app­li­ca­ti­on and use of AddThis

On this web­site, the data con­trol­ler has inte­gra­ted com­pon­ents of the enter­pri­se AddThis. AddThis is a so-cal­led book­mar­king pro­vi­der. The ser­vice allows for sim­pli­fied book­mar­king of Inter­net pages via but­tons. By cli­cking on the AddThis com­po­nent with the mou­se, or by cli­cking on it, a list of book­mar­king and sharing ser­vices is dis­play­ed. AddThis is used on over 15 mil­li­on web­sites, and the but­tons are dis­play­ed, accord­ing to the infor­ma­ti­on of the ope­ra­ting enter­pri­se, over 20 bil­li­on times a year.

The ope­ra­ting com­pa­ny of AddThis is Ora­cle Cor­po­ra­ti­on, 10 Van de Graaff Dri­ve, Bur­ling­ton, MA 01803, USA.

By cal­ling up one of the indi­vi­du­al pages of the web­site, which is ope­ra­ted by the con­trol­ler, and on which an AddThis com­po­nent has been inte­gra­ted, the Inter­net brow­ser of the data sub­ject is auto­ma­ti­cal­ly promp­ted by the respec­tive AddThis com­po­nent to down­load data from the web­site www.addthis.com. Wit­hin the frame­work of this tech­ni­cal pro­ce­du­re, AddThis is infor­med of the visit and the spe­ci­fic indi­vi­du­al page of this web­site that was used by the data sub­ject with the help of infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy. In addi­ti­on, AddThis is infor­med about the IP address of the com­pu­ter sys­tem assi­gned by the Inter­net ser­vice pro­vi­der (ISP) and used by the data sub­ject, the brow­ser type and lan­guage, the web page acces­sed befo­re our web­site, the date and the time of the visit to our web­site. AddThis uses this data to crea­te anony­mous user pro­files. The data and infor­ma­ti­on trans­mit­ted to AddThis in this way will enab­le the enter­pri­se AddThis, as well as affi­lia­tes or their part­ner-enter­pri­ses, to con­tact visi­tors of the web pages of the con­trol­ler with per­so­na­li­zed and inte­rest-based adver­ti­sing.

AddThis dis­plays per­so­na­li­zed and inte­rest-based adver­ti­sing on the basis of a coo­kie set by the enter­pri­se. This coo­kie ana­ly­zes the indi­vi­du­al sur­fing beha­vi­or of the com­pu­ter sys­tem used by the data sub­ject. The coo­kie saves the com­pu­ter-based out­go­ing visits to Inter­net pages.

The data sub­ject may, at any time, pre­vent the set­ting of coo­kies through our web­site by means of a cor­re­spon­ding set­ting of the Inter­net brow­ser used, and thus per­man­ent­ly deny the set­ting of coo­kies. Such a set­ting of the Inter­net brow­ser used would also pre­vent AddThis from set­ting a coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject. Coo­kies may also be dele­ted by AddThis at any time via an Inter­net brow­ser or other soft­ware pro­grams.

The data sub­ject also has the pos­si­bi­li­ty of objec­ting per­man­ent­ly to the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data by AddThis. For this pur­po­se, the data sub­ject must click on the opt-out but­ton under the link http://www.addthis.com/privacy/opt-out, which sets an opt-out coo­kie. The opt-out coo­kie used for this pur­po­se is pla­ced on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem used by the data sub­ject. If the data sub­ject dele­tes the coo­kies from his sys­tem, then the data sub­ject must call up the link again and set a new opt-out coo­kie.

With the set­ting of the opt-out coo­kie, howe­ver, the pos­si­bi­li­ty exists that the web­sites of the con­trol­ler are not ful­ly usable any­mo­re by the data sub­ject.

13. Data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons about the app­li­ca­ti­on and use of Ado­be Ana­ly­tics (Omni­tu­re) / Ado­be mar­ke­ting cloud

On this web­site, the con­trol­ler has inte­gra­ted com­pon­ents of the enter­pri­se Ado­be. Ado­be Ana­ly­tics (Omni­tu­re) and Ado­be Mar­ke­ting Cloud (her­einaf­ter refer­red to as “Omni­tu­re”) is an instru­ment that allows for more effi­ci­ent online mar­ke­ting and web ana­ly­sis. Omni­tu­re is part of Ado­be Mar­ke­ting Cloud. Ado­be Mar­ke­ting Cloud enab­les real-time ana­ly­sis of visi­tor flows on Inter­net sites. The real-time ana­ly­sis inclu­des pro­ject reports and allows an ad-hoc ana­ly­sis of site visi­tors. Custo­mer inter­ac­tions are pre­sen­ted in such a way as to give the con­trol­ler a bet­ter over­view of users’ online activi­ties of this web­site by dis­play­ing the data in simp­le and inter­ac­tive dash­boards and con­ver­ting them into reports. This enab­les the con­trol­ler to obtain infor­ma­ti­on in real-time and to iden­ti­fy pro­blems that occur more quick­ly.

The ope­ra­ting com­pa­ny for the­se ser­vices is Ado­be Sys­tems Soft­ware Ire­land Limi­ted, 4–6 River­walk, City­west Busi­ness Cam­pus, Dub­lin 24, Ire­land.

Omni­tu­re sets a coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject (coo­kies have alrea­dy been exp­lai­ned in advan­ce, which may be read above). The con­trol­ler ensu­res that the tracking data trans­fer­red to the Ado­be data cen­ter is anony­mi­zed pri­or to geo­lo­ca­ti­on. The anony­mi­za­ti­on is imple­men­ted by repla­cing the last part of the IP address. The con­trol­ler has made ser­ver-sided set­tings, which are used to anony­mi­ze the IP address of the data sub­ject pri­or to pro­ces­sing for geo­lo­ca­ti­on and ran­ge mea­su­rement. Ado­be will use the data and infor­ma­ti­on obtai­ned via our web­site to ana­ly­ze the user beha­vi­or of the data sub­ject on behalf of the con­trol­ler. Ado­be will also use the data to crea­te reports on user activi­ty on our behalf, as well as pro­vi­de other ser­vices to our enter­pri­se rela­ted to the use of our web­site. The IP address of the data sub­ject is not mer­ged with other per­so­nal data by Ado­be.

As sta­ted above, the data sub­ject may, at any time, pre­vent the set­ting of coo­kies through our web­site by means of a cor­re­spon­ding set­ting of the Inter­net brow­ser used, and thus per­man­ent­ly deny the set­ting of coo­kies. Such a set­ting of the Inter­net brow­ser used would also pre­vent Omni­tu­re from set­ting a coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject. Coo­kies may also be dele­ted by Omni­tu­re at any time via an Inter­net brow­ser or other soft­ware pro­grams.

The data sub­ject also has the pos­si­bi­li­ty of objec­ting to and pre­ven­ting the collec­tion of data gene­ra­ted by the Ado­be coo­kie on the use of this web­site and the pro­ces­sing of this data by Ado­be. For this pur­po­se, the data sub­ject must click on the opt-out but­ton under the link http://www.adobe.com/de/privacy/opt-out.html, which sets an opt-out coo­kie. The opt-out coo­kie used for this pur­po­se is pla­ced on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem used by the data sub­ject. If the data sub­ject dele­tes the coo­kies from his sys­tem, then the data sub­ject must call up the link again and set a new opt-out coo­kie.

With the set­ting of the opt-out coo­kie, howe­ver, the pos­si­bi­li­ty exists that the web­sites of the con­trol­ler are not ful­ly usable any­mo­re by the data sub­ject.

14. Data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons about the app­li­ca­ti­on and use of Econ­da

On this web­site, the con­trol­ler has inte­gra­ted com­pon­ents of the enter­pri­se Econ­da. Econ­da is a web ana­ly­tics ser­vice. Web ana­ly­tics is the collec­tion, gathe­ring and ana­ly­sis of data about the beha­vi­or of visi­tors of the web­sites. A web ana­ly­sis ser­vice cap­tures, among other things, data per­tai­ning to which web­site a per­son has arri­ved on via ano­t­her web­site (the so-cal­led refer­rer), which sub-site of the web­site was visi­ted, or how often and for what dura­ti­on a sub-site was view­ed. Web ana­ly­tics are main­ly used for the opti­mi­za­ti­on of a web­site in order to car­ry out a cost-bene­fit ana­ly­sis of Inter­net adver­ti­sing.

The ope­ra­ting com­pa­ny of Econ­da is econ­da GmbH, Zim­mer­stra­ße 6, 76137 Karls­ru­he, Ger­ma­ny.

Econ­da sets a coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject. The defi­ni­ti­on of coo­kies is exp­lai­ned above. With each call up to one of the indi­vi­du­al pages of this Inter­net site, which is ope­ra­ted by the con­trol­ler and on which an Econ­da com­po­nent was inte­gra­ted, the Inter­net brow­ser on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject is auto­ma­ti­cal­ly promp­ted to trans­mit data for mar­ke­ting and opti­mi­sa­ti­on pur­po­ses to Econ­da through the Econ­da com­po­nent. During the cour­se of this tech­ni­cal pro­ce­du­re, Econ­da obtains data that is used to crea­te pseud­ony­mous user pro­files. The user pro­files crea­ted in such a way are used to ana­ly­ze the beha­vi­or of the data sub­ject who has acces­sed the web­site of the con­trol­ler and are eva­lua­ted with the aim of impro­ving and opti­mi­zing the web­site. The data collec­ted via the Econ­da com­po­nent is not used to iden­ti­fy the data sub­ject wit­hout first obtai­ning sepa­ra­te and expli­cit con­sent from the data sub­ject. The­se data will not be mer­ged with per­so­nal data or with other data that con­tain the same pseud­onym.

The data sub­ject may, as sta­ted above, pre­vent the set­ting of coo­kies through our web­site at any time by means of a cor­re­spon­ding adjust­ment of the Inter­net brow­ser used, and thus per­man­ent­ly deny the set­ting of coo­kies. Such an adjust­ment to the Inter­net brow­ser used would also pre­vent Econ­da from set­ting a coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject. In addi­ti­on, coo­kies alrea­dy set by Econ­da may be dele­ted at any time via a web brow­ser or other soft­ware pro­grams.

In addi­ti­on, the data sub­ject has the pos­si­bi­li­ty of objec­ting to a collec­tion of data rela­ting to a use of this Inter­net site that are gene­ra­ted by the Econ­da coo­kie as well as the pro­ces­sing of the­se data by Econ­da and the chan­ce to pre­clu­de any such. For this pur­po­se, the data sub­ject must press the ‘sub­mit’ but­ton under the link http://www.econda.com/econda/enterprise/data-protection/revocation-of-data-storage/, which sets the opt-out coo­kie. The opt-out coo­kie used for this pur­po­se is pla­ced on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem used by the data sub­ject. If the coo­kies are dele­ted from the sys­tem of the data sub­ject, then the data sub­ject must call up the link again and set a new opt-out coo­kie.

With the set­ting of the opt-out coo­kie, howe­ver, the pos­si­bi­li­ty exists that the web­sites of the con­trol­ler are not ful­ly usable any­mo­re by the data sub­ject.

15. Data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons about the app­li­ca­ti­on and use of Etra­cker

On this web­site, the con­trol­ler has inte­gra­ted com­pon­ents of the enter­pri­se Etra­cker. Etra­cker is a Web ana­ly­tics ser­vice. Web ana­ly­tics is the collec­tion, gathe­ring and ana­ly­sis of data about the beha­vi­or of visi­tors to web­sites. A web ana­ly­sis ser­vice cap­tures, among other things, data about from which web­site a per­son has arri­ved on ano­t­her web­site (the so-cal­led refer­rer), which sub-sites of the web­site were visi­ted or how often and for what dura­ti­on a sub-site was view­ed. Web ana­ly­tics are main­ly used for the opti­mi­za­ti­on of a web­site and in order to car­ry out a cost-bene­fit ana­ly­sis of Inter­net adver­ti­sing.

The ope­ra­ting com­pa­ny of Etra­cker is etra­cker GmbH, Ers­te Brun­nen­stra­ße 1, 20459 Ham­burg, Ger­ma­ny.

Etra­cker sets a coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject. The defi­ni­ti­on of coo­kies is exp­lai­ned above. With each call-up to one of the indi­vi­du­al pages of this Inter­net site, which is ope­ra­ted by the con­trol­ler and into which an Etra­cker com­po­nent was inte­gra­ted, the Inter­net brow­ser on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject is auto­ma­ti­cal­ly promp­ted to trans­mit data for mar­ke­ting and opti­mi­sa­ti­on pur­po­ses to Etra­cker through the Etra­cker com­po­nent. During the cour­se of this tech­ni­cal pro­ce­du­re Etra­cker recei­ves data that is used to crea­te pseud­ony­mous user pro­files. The user pro­files crea­ted in such a way are used for the ana­ly­sis of the beha­viour of the data sub­ject, which has acces­sed Inter­net page of the con­trol­ler and are eva­lua­ted with the aim of impro­ving and opti­mi­zing the web­site. The data collec­ted through the Etra­cker com­po­nent is not used wit­hout first obtai­ning of a sepa­ra­te and expli­cit con­sent of the data sub­ject to iden­ti­fy the data sub­ject. This data is not mer­ged with per­so­nal data or other data which con­tain the same pseud­onym.

The data sub­ject may, as sta­ted above, at any time pre­vent the set­ting of coo­kies through our web­site by means of a cor­re­spon­ding adjust­ment of the Inter­net brow­ser used and, per­man­ent­ly deny the set­ting of coo­kies. Such an adjust­ment to the Inter­net brow­ser used would also pre­vent Etra­cker from set­ting a coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject. In addi­ti­on, coo­kies alrea­dy set by Etra­cker may be dele­ted at any time via a Web brow­ser or other soft­ware pro­grams.

In addi­ti­on, the data sub­ject has the pos­si­bi­li­ty of objec­ting to a collec­tion of data rela­ting to a use of this Inter­net site that are gene­ra­ted by the Etra­cker coo­kie as well as the pro­ces­sing of the­se data by Etra­cker and the chan­ce to pre­clu­de such. For this pur­po­se, the data sub­ject must press the ‘coo­kie-set’ but­ton under the link http://www.etracker.de/privacy?sid=58e31c864e66848984dfc79b8f6b51a9&id=privacy&ð=V23Jbb&languageId=2, which sets an opt-out coo­kie. The opt-out coo­kie used for this pur­po­se is pla­ced on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem used by the data sub­ject. If the coo­kies are dele­ted from the sys­tem of the data sub­ject, then the data sub­ject must call up the link again and set a new opt-out coo­kie.

With the set­ting of the opt-out coo­kie, howe­ver, the pos­si­bi­li­ty exists that the web­sites of the con­trol­ler are not ful­ly usable any­mo­re by the data sub­ject.

16. Data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons about the app­li­ca­ti­on and use of Goog­le AdSen­se

On this web­site, the con­trol­ler has inte­gra­ted Goog­le AdSen­se. Goog­le AdSen­se is an online ser­vice which allows the pla­ce­ment of adver­ti­sing on third-par­ty sites. Goog­le AdSen­se is based on an algo­rithm that selec­ts adver­ti­se­ments dis­play­ed on third-par­ty sites to match with the con­tent of the respec­tive third-par­ty site. Goog­le AdSen­se allows an inte­rest-based tar­ge­ting of the Inter­net user, which is imple­men­ted by means of gene­ra­ting indi­vi­du­al user pro­files.

The ope­ra­ting com­pa­ny of Google’s AdSen­se com­po­nent is Goog­le Ire­land Limi­ted, Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dub­lin, D04 E5W5, Ire­land.

The pur­po­se of Google’s AdSen­se com­po­nent is the inte­gra­ti­on of adver­ti­se­ments on our web­site. Goog­le AdSen­se pla­ces a coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject. The defi­ni­ti­on of coo­kies is exp­lai­ned above. With the set­ting of the coo­kie, Alpha­bet Inc. is enab­led to ana­ly­ze the use of our web­site. With each call-up to one of the indi­vi­du­al pages of this Inter­net site, which is ope­ra­ted by the con­trol­ler and into which a Goog­le AdSen­se com­po­nent is inte­gra­ted, the Inter­net brow­ser on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject will auto­ma­ti­cal­ly sub­mit data through the Goog­le AdSen­se com­po­nent for the pur­po­se of online adver­ti­sing and the sett­le­ment of com­mis­si­ons to Alpha­bet Inc. During the cour­se of this tech­ni­cal pro­ce­du­re, the enter­pri­se Alpha­bet Inc. gains know­ledge of per­so­nal data, such as the IP address of the data sub­ject, which ser­ves Alpha­bet Inc., inter alia, to under­stand the ori­gin of visi­tors and clicks and sub­se­quent­ly crea­te com­mis­si­on sett­le­ments.

The data sub­ject may, as sta­ted above, pre­vent the set­ting of coo­kies through our web­site at any time by means of a cor­re­spon­ding adjust­ment of the web brow­ser used and thus per­man­ent­ly deny the set­ting of coo­kies. Such an adjust­ment to the Inter­net brow­ser used would also pre­vent Alpha­bet Inc. from set­ting a coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject. Addi­tio­nal­ly, coo­kies alrea­dy in use by Alpha­bet Inc. may be dele­ted at any time via a web brow­ser or other soft­ware pro­grams.

Fur­ther­mo­re, Goog­le AdSen­se also uses so-cal­led tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a minia­tu­re gra­phic that is embed­ded in web pages to enab­le a log file record­ing and a log file ana­ly­sis through which a sta­tis­ti­cal ana­ly­sis may be per­for­med. Based on the embed­ded tracking pixels, Alpha­bet Inc. is able to deter­mi­ne if and when a web­site was ope­ned by a data sub­ject, and which links were cli­cked on by the data sub­ject. Tracking pixels ser­ve, inter alia, to ana­ly­ze the flow of visi­tors on a web­site.

Through Goog­le AdSen­se, per­so­nal data and information—which also inclu­des the IP address, and is necessa­ry for the collec­tion and accoun­ting of the dis­play­ed advertisements—is trans­mit­ted to Alpha­bet Inc. in the United Sta­tes of Ame­ri­ca. The­se per­so­nal data will be stored and pro­ces­sed in the United Sta­tes of Ame­ri­ca. The Alpha­bet Inc. may dis­c­lo­se the collec­ted per­so­nal data through this tech­ni­cal pro­ce­du­re to third par­ties.

17. Data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons about the app­li­ca­ti­on and use of Goog­le Ana­ly­tics (with anony­mi­za­ti­on func­tion)

On this web­site, the con­trol­ler has inte­gra­ted the com­po­nent of Goog­le Ana­ly­tics (with the anony­mi­zer func­tion). Goog­le Ana­ly­tics is a web ana­ly­tics ser­vice. Web ana­ly­tics is the collec­tion, gathe­ring, and ana­ly­sis of data about the beha­vi­or of visi­tors to web­sites. A web ana­ly­sis ser­vice collec­ts, inter alia, data about the web­site from which a per­son has come (the so-cal­led refer­rer), which sub-pages were visi­ted, or how often and for what dura­ti­on a sub-page was view­ed. Web ana­ly­tics are main­ly used for the opti­mi­za­ti­on of a web­site and in order to car­ry out a cost-bene­fit ana­ly­sis of Inter­net adver­ti­sing.

The ope­ra­tor of the Goog­le Ana­ly­tics com­po­nent is Goog­le Ire­land Limi­ted, Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dub­lin, D04 E5W5, Ire­land.

For the web ana­ly­tics through Goog­le Ana­ly­tics the con­trol­ler uses the app­li­ca­ti­on “_gat. _anonymizeIp”. By means of this app­li­ca­ti­on the IP address of the Inter­net con­nec­tion of the data sub­ject is abrid­ged by Goog­le and anony­mi­sed when acces­sing our web­sites from a Mem­ber Sta­te of the European Uni­on or ano­t­her Con­trac­ting Sta­te to the Agree­ment on the European Eco­no­mic Area.

The pur­po­se of the Goog­le Ana­ly­tics com­po­nent is to ana­ly­ze the traf­fic on our web­site. Goog­le uses the collec­ted data and infor­ma­ti­on, inter alia, to eva­lua­te the use of our web­site and to pro­vi­de online reports, which show the activi­ties on our web­sites, and to pro­vi­de other ser­vices con­cer­ning the use of our Inter­net site for us.

Goog­le Ana­ly­tics pla­ces a coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject. The defi­ni­ti­on of coo­kies is exp­lai­ned above. With the set­ting of the coo­kie, Goog­le is enab­led to ana­ly­ze the use of our web­site. With each call-up to one of the indi­vi­du­al pages of this Inter­net site, which is ope­ra­ted by the con­trol­ler and into which a Goog­le Ana­ly­tics com­po­nent was inte­gra­ted, the Inter­net brow­ser on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject will auto­ma­ti­cal­ly sub­mit data through the Goog­le Ana­ly­tics com­po­nent for the pur­po­se of online adver­ti­sing and the sett­le­ment of com­mis­si­ons to Goog­le. During the cour­se of this tech­ni­cal pro­ce­du­re, the enter­pri­se Goog­le gains know­ledge of per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on, such as the IP address of the data sub­ject, which ser­ves Goog­le, inter alia, to under­stand the ori­gin of visi­tors and clicks, and sub­se­quent­ly crea­te com­mis­si­on sett­le­ments.

The coo­kie is used to store per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on, such as the access time, the loca­ti­on from which the access was made, and the fre­quen­cy of visits of our web­site by the data sub­ject. With each visit to our Inter­net site, such per­so­nal data, inclu­ding the IP address of the Inter­net access used by the data sub­ject, will be trans­mit­ted to Goog­le in the United Sta­tes of Ame­ri­ca. The­se per­so­nal data are stored by Goog­le in the United Sta­tes of Ame­ri­ca. Goog­le may pass the­se per­so­nal data collec­ted through the tech­ni­cal pro­ce­du­re to third par­ties.

The data sub­ject may, as sta­ted above, pre­vent the set­ting of coo­kies through our web­site at any time by means of a cor­re­spon­ding adjust­ment of the web brow­ser used and thus per­man­ent­ly deny the set­ting of coo­kies. Such an adjust­ment to the Inter­net brow­ser used would also pre­vent Goog­le Ana­ly­tics from set­ting a coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject. In addi­ti­on, coo­kies alrea­dy in use by Goog­le Ana­ly­tics may be dele­ted at any time via a web brow­ser or other soft­ware pro­grams.

In addi­ti­on, the data sub­ject has the pos­si­bi­li­ty of objec­ting to a collec­tion of data that are gene­ra­ted by Goog­le Ana­ly­tics, which is rela­ted to the use of this web­site, as well as the pro­ces­sing of this data by Goog­le and the chan­ce to pre­clu­de any such. For this pur­po­se, the data sub­ject must down­load a brow­ser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and install it. This brow­ser add-on tells Goog­le Ana­ly­tics through a Java­Script, that any data and infor­ma­ti­on about the visits of Inter­net pages may not be trans­mit­ted to Goog­le Ana­ly­tics. The instal­la­ti­on of the brow­ser add-ons is con­si­de­red an objec­tion by Goog­le. If the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject is later dele­ted, for­mat­ted, or new­ly instal­led, then the data sub­ject must reinstall the brow­ser add-ons to dis­able Goog­le Ana­ly­tics. If the brow­ser add-on was unin­stal­led by the data sub­ject or any other per­son who is attri­bu­ta­ble to their sphe­re of com­pe­tence, or is dis­ab­led, it is pos­si­ble to exe­cu­te the reinstal­la­ti­on or reac­tiva­ti­on of the brow­ser add-ons.

Fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on and the app­li­ca­ble data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons of Goog­le may be retrie­ved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and under http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Goog­le Ana­ly­tics is fur­ther exp­lai­ned under the fol­lo­wing Link https://www.google.com/analytics/.

18. Data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons about the app­li­ca­ti­on and use of Goog­le Remar­ke­ting

On this web­site, the con­trol­ler has inte­gra­ted Goog­le Remar­ke­ting ser­vices. Goog­le Remar­ke­ting is a fea­ture of Goog­le AdWords, which allows an enter­pri­se to dis­play adver­ti­sing to Inter­net users who have pre­vious­ly resi­ded on the enterprise’s Inter­net site. The inte­gra­ti­on of Goog­le Remar­ke­ting the­re­fo­re allows an enter­pri­se to crea­te user-based adver­ti­sing and thus shows rele­vant adver­ti­se­ments to inte­rested Inter­net users.

The ope­ra­ting com­pa­ny of the Goog­le Remar­ke­ting ser­vices is the Goog­le Ire­land Limi­ted, Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dub­lin, D04 E5W5, Ire­land.

The pur­po­se of Goog­le Remar­ke­ting is the inser­ti­on of inte­rest-rele­vant adver­ti­sing. Goog­le Remar­ke­ting allows us to dis­play ads on the Goog­le net­work or on other web­sites, which are based on indi­vi­du­al needs and matched to the inte­rests of Inter­net users.

Goog­le Remar­ke­ting sets a coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject. The defi­ni­ti­on of coo­kies is exp­lai­ned above. With the set­ting of the coo­kie, Goog­le enab­les a reco­gni­ti­on of the visi­tor of our web­site if he calls up con­se­cu­ti­ve web pages, which are also a mem­ber of the Goog­le adver­ti­sing net­work. With each call-up to an Inter­net site on which the ser­vice has been inte­gra­ted by Goog­le Remar­ke­ting, the web brow­ser of the data sub­ject iden­ti­fies auto­ma­ti­cal­ly with Goog­le. During the cour­se of this tech­ni­cal pro­ce­du­re, Goog­le recei­ves per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on, such as the IP address or the sur­fing beha­viour of the user, which Goog­le uses, inter alia, for the inser­ti­on of inte­rest rele­vant adver­ti­sing.

The coo­kie is used to store per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on, e.g. the Inter­net pages visi­ted by the data sub­ject. Each time we visit our Inter­net pages, per­so­nal data, inclu­ding the IP address of the Inter­net access used by the data sub­ject, is trans­mit­ted to Goog­le in the United Sta­tes of Ame­ri­ca. The­se per­so­nal data are stored by Goog­le in the United Sta­tes of Ame­ri­ca. Goog­le may pass the­se per­so­nal data collec­ted through the tech­ni­cal pro­ce­du­re to third par­ties.

The data sub­ject may, as sta­ted above, pre­vent the set­ting of coo­kies through our web­site at any time by means of a cor­re­spon­ding adjust­ment of the web brow­ser used and thus per­man­ent­ly deny the set­ting of coo­kies. Such an adjust­ment to the Inter­net brow­ser used would also pre­vent Goog­le from set­ting a coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject. In addi­ti­on, coo­kies alrea­dy in use by Goog­le may be dele­ted at any time via a web brow­ser or other soft­ware pro­grams.

In addi­ti­on, the data sub­ject has the pos­si­bi­li­ty of objec­ting to the inte­rest-based adver­ti­sing by Goog­le. For this pur­po­se, the data sub­ject must call up the link to www.google.de/settings/ads and make the desi­red set­tings on each Inter­net brow­ser used by the data sub­ject.

19. Data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons about the app­li­ca­ti­on and use of Goog­le+

On this web­site, the con­trol­ler has inte­gra­ted the Goog­le+ but­ton as a com­po­nent. Goog­le+ is a so-cal­led soci­al net­work. A soci­al net­work is a soci­al mee­ting place on the Inter­net, an online com­mu­ni­ty, which usual­ly allows users to com­mu­ni­ca­te with each other and inter­act in a vir­tu­al space. A soci­al net­work may ser­ve as a plat­form for the exchan­ge of opi­ni­ons and expe­ri­en­ces, or enab­le the Inter­net com­mu­ni­ty to pro­vi­de per­so­nal or busi­ness-rela­ted infor­ma­ti­on. Goog­le+ allows users of the soci­al net­work to inclu­de the crea­ti­on of pri­va­te pro­files, upload pho­tos and net­work through fri­end requests.

The ope­ra­ting com­pa­ny of Goog­le+ is Goog­le Ire­land Limi­ted, Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dub­lin, D04 E5W5, Ire­land.

With each call-up to one of the indi­vi­du­al pages of this web­site, which is ope­ra­ted by the con­trol­ler and on which a Goog­le+ but­ton has been inte­gra­ted, the Inter­net brow­ser on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject auto­ma­ti­cal­ly down­loads a dis­play of the cor­re­spon­ding Goog­le+ but­ton of Goog­le through the respec­tive Goog­le+ but­ton com­po­nent. During the cour­se of this tech­ni­cal pro­ce­du­re, Goog­le is made awa­re of what spe­ci­fic sub-page of our web­site was visi­ted by the data sub­ject. More detail­ed infor­ma­ti­on about Goog­le+ is avail­ab­le under https://developers.google.com/+/.

If the data sub­ject is log­ged in at the same time to Goog­le+, Goog­le reco­gni­zes with each call-up to our web­site by the data sub­ject and for the ent­i­re dura­ti­on of his or her stay on our Inter­net site, which spe­ci­fic sub-pages of our Inter­net page were visi­ted by the data sub­ject. This infor­ma­ti­on is collec­ted through the Goog­le+ but­ton and Goog­le matches this with the respec­tive Goog­le+ account asso­cia­ted with the data sub­ject.

If the data sub­ject clicks on the Goog­le+ but­ton inte­gra­ted on our web­site and thus gives a Goog­le+ 1 recom­men­da­ti­on, then Goog­le assigns this infor­ma­ti­on to the per­so­nal Goog­le+ user account of the data sub­ject and stores the per­so­nal data. Goog­le stores the Goog­le+ 1 recom­men­da­ti­on of the data sub­ject, making it publicly avail­ab­le in accordance with the terms and con­di­ti­ons accep­ted by the data sub­ject in this regard. Sub­se­quent­ly, a Goog­le+ 1 recom­men­da­ti­on given by the data sub­ject on this web­site tog­e­ther with other per­so­nal data, such as the Goog­le+ account name used by the data sub­ject and the stored pho­to, is stored and pro­ces­sed on other Goog­le ser­vices, such as search-engi­ne results of the Goog­le search engi­ne, the Goog­le account of the data sub­ject or in other pla­ces, e.g. on Inter­net pages, or in rela­ti­on to adver­ti­se­ments. Goog­le is also able to link the visit to this web­site with other per­so­nal data stored on Goog­le. Goog­le fur­ther records this per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on with the pur­po­se of impro­ving or opti­mi­zing the various Goog­le ser­vices.

Through the Goog­le+ but­ton, Goog­le recei­ves infor­ma­ti­on that the data sub­ject visi­ted our web­site, if the data sub­ject at the time of the call-up to our web­site is log­ged in to Goog­le+. This occurs regard­less of whe­ther the data sub­ject clicks or doesn’t click on the Goog­le+ but­ton.

If the data sub­ject does not wish to trans­mit per­so­nal data to Goog­le, he or she may pre­vent such trans­mis­si­on by log­ging out of his Goog­le+ account befo­re cal­ling up our web­site.

Fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on and the data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons of Goog­le may be retrie­ved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/. More refe­ren­ces from Goog­le about the Goog­le+ 1 but­ton may be obtai­ned under https://developers.google.com/+/web/buttons-policy.

20. Data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons about the app­li­ca­ti­on and use of Goog­le-AdWords

On this web­site, the con­trol­ler has inte­gra­ted Goog­le AdWords. Goog­le AdWords is a ser­vice for Inter­net adver­ti­sing that allows the adver­ti­ser to place ads in Goog­le search engi­ne results and the Goog­le adver­ti­sing net­work. Goog­le AdWords allows an adver­ti­ser to pre-defi­ne spe­ci­fic key­words with the help of which an ad on Google’s search results only then dis­play­ed, when the user uti­li­zes the search engi­ne to retrie­ve a key­word-rele­vant search result. In the Goog­le Adver­ti­sing Net­work, the ads are dis­tri­bu­t­ed on rele­vant web pages using an auto­ma­tic algo­rithm, taking into account the pre­vious­ly defi­ned key­words.

The ope­ra­ting com­pa­ny of Goog­le AdWords is Goog­le Ire­land Limi­ted, Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dub­lin, D04 E5W5, Ire­land.

The pur­po­se of Goog­le AdWords is the pro­mo­ti­on of our web­site by the inclu­si­on of rele­vant adver­ti­sing on the web­sites of third par­ties and in the search engi­ne results of the search engi­ne Goog­le and an inser­ti­on of third-par­ty adver­ti­sing on our web­site.

If a data sub­ject reaches our web­site via a Goog­le ad, a con­ver­si­on coo­kie is filed on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject through Goog­le. The defi­ni­ti­on of coo­kies is exp­lai­ned above. A con­ver­si­on coo­kie loses its vali­di­ty after 30 days and is not used to iden­ti­fy the data sub­ject. If the coo­kie has not expi­red, the con­ver­si­on coo­kie is used to check whe­ther cer­tain sub-pages, e.g, the shop­ping cart from an online shop sys­tem, were cal­led up on our web­site. Through the con­ver­si­on coo­kie, both Goog­le and the con­trol­ler can under­stand whe­ther a per­son who reached an AdWords ad on our web­site gene­ra­ted sales, that is, exe­cu­t­ed or can­ce­led a sale of goods.

The data and infor­ma­ti­on collec­ted through the use of the con­ver­si­on coo­kie is used by Goog­le to crea­te visit sta­tis­tics for our web­site. The­se visit sta­tis­tics are used in order to deter­mi­ne the total num­ber of users who have been ser­ved through AdWords ads to ascer­tain the suc­cess or fail­u­re of each AdWords ad and to opti­mi­ze our AdWords ads in the future. Neit­her our com­pa­ny nor other Goog­le AdWords adver­ti­sers recei­ve infor­ma­ti­on from Goog­le that could iden­ti­fy the data sub­ject.

The con­ver­si­on coo­kie stores per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on, e.g. the Inter­net pages visi­ted by the data sub­ject. Each time we visit our Inter­net pages, per­so­nal data, inclu­ding the IP address of the Inter­net access used by the data sub­ject, is trans­mit­ted to Goog­le in the United Sta­tes of Ame­ri­ca. The­se per­so­nal data are stored by Goog­le in the United Sta­tes of Ame­ri­ca. Goog­le may pass the­se per­so­nal data collec­ted through the tech­ni­cal pro­ce­du­re to third par­ties.

The data sub­ject may, at any time, pre­vent the set­ting of coo­kies by our web­site, as sta­ted above, by means of a cor­re­spon­ding set­ting of the Inter­net brow­ser used and thus per­man­ent­ly deny the set­ting of coo­kies. Such a set­ting of the Inter­net brow­ser used would also pre­vent Goog­le from pla­cing a con­ver­si­on coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject. In addi­ti­on, a coo­kie set by Goog­le AdWords may be dele­ted at any time via the Inter­net brow­ser or other soft­ware pro­grams.

The data sub­ject has a pos­si­bi­li­ty of objec­ting to the inte­rest based adver­ti­se­ment of Goog­le. The­re­fo­re, the data sub­ject must access from each of the brow­sers in use the link www.google.de/settings/ads and set the desi­red set­tings.

Fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on and the app­li­ca­ble data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons of Goog­le may be retrie­ved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

21. Data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons about the app­li­ca­ti­on and use of Jet­pack for Word­Press

On this web­site, the con­trol­ler has inte­gra­ted Jet­pack. Jet­pack is a Word­Press plug-in, which pro­vi­des addi­tio­nal fea­tures to the ope­ra­tor of a web­site based on Word­Press. Jet­pack allows the Inter­net site ope­ra­tor, inter alia, an over­view of the visi­tors of the site. By dis­play­ing rela­ted posts and publi­ca­ti­ons, or the abi­li­ty to sha­re con­tent on the page, it is also pos­si­ble to increa­se visi­tor num­bers. In addi­ti­on, secu­ri­ty fea­tures are inte­gra­ted into Jet­pack, so a Jet­pack-using site is bet­ter pro­tec­ted against bru­te-force attacks. Jet­pack also opti­mi­zes and acce­le­ra­tes the loa­ding of images on the web­site.

The ope­ra­ting com­pa­ny of Jet­pack Plug-Ins for Word­Press is the Aut O’Mattic A8C Ire­land Ltd., Busi­ness Cent­re, No.1 Lower Mayor Street, Inter­na­tio­nal Finan­ci­al Ser­vices Cent­re, Dub­lin 1, Ire­land.

Jet­pack sets a coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem used by the data sub­ject. The defi­ni­ti­on of coo­kies is exp­lai­ned above. With each call-up to one of the indi­vi­du­al pages of this Inter­net site, which is ope­ra­ted by the con­trol­ler and on which a Jet­pack com­po­nent was inte­gra­ted, the Inter­net brow­ser on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject is auto­ma­ti­cal­ly promp­ted to sub­mit data through the Jet­pack com­po­nent for ana­ly­sis pur­po­ses to Auto­mat­tic. During the cour­se of this tech­ni­cal pro­ce­du­re Auto­mat­tic recei­ves data that is used to crea­te an over­view of web­site visits. The data obtai­ned in this way ser­ves the ana­ly­sis of the beha­viour of the data sub­ject, which has access to the Inter­net page of the con­trol­ler and is ana­ly­zed with the aim to opti­mi­ze the web­site. The data collec­ted through the Jet­pack com­po­nent is not used to iden­ti­fy the data sub­ject wit­hout a pri­or obtai­ning of a sepa­ra­te express con­sent of the data sub­ject. The data comes also to the noti­ce of Quant­cast. Quant­cast uses the data for the same pur­po­ses as Auto­mat­tic.

The data sub­ject can, as sta­ted above, pre­vent the set­ting of coo­kies through our web­site at any time by means of a cor­re­spon­ding adjust­ment of the web brow­ser used and thus per­man­ent­ly deny the set­ting of coo­kies. Such an adjust­ment to the Inter­net brow­ser used would also pre­vent Automattic/Quantcast from set­ting a coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject. In addi­ti­on, coo­kies alrea­dy in use by Automattic/Quantcast may be dele­ted at any time via a web brow­ser or other soft­ware pro­grams.

In addi­ti­on, the data sub­ject has the pos­si­bi­li­ty of objec­ting to a collec­tion of data rela­ting to a use of this Inter­net site that are gene­ra­ted by the Jet­pack coo­kie as well as the pro­ces­sing of the­se data by Automattic/Quantcast and the chan­ce to pre­clu­de any such. For this pur­po­se, the data sub­ject must press the ‘opt-out’ but­ton under the link https://www.quantcast.com/opt-out/ which sets an opt-out coo­kie. The opt-out coo­kie set with this pur­po­se is pla­ced on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem used by the data sub­ject. If the coo­kies are dele­ted on the sys­tem of the data sub­ject, then the data sub­ject must call up the link again and set a new opt-out coo­kie.

With the set­ting of the opt-out coo­kie, howe­ver, the pos­si­bi­li­ty exists that the web­sites of the con­trol­ler are not ful­ly usable any­mo­re by the data sub­ject.

With each call-up to one of the indi­vi­du­al pages of this Inter­net site, which is ope­ra­ted by the con­trol­ler and on which a Lin­kedIn com­po­nent (Lin­kedIn plug-in) was inte­gra­ted, the Inter­net brow­ser on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject is auto­ma­ti­cal­ly promp­ted to the down­load of a dis­play of the cor­re­spon­ding Lin­kedIn com­po­nent of Lin­kedIn. Fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on about the Lin­kedIn plug-in may be acces­sed under https://developer.linkedin.com/plugins. During the cour­se of this tech­ni­cal pro­ce­du­re, Lin­kedIn gains know­ledge of what spe­ci­fic sub-page of our web­site was visi­ted by the data sub­ject.

If the data sub­ject is log­ged in at the same time on Lin­kedIn, Lin­kedIn detec­ts with every call-up to our web­site by the data subject—and for the ent­i­re dura­ti­on of their stay on our Inter­net site—which spe­ci­fic sub-page of our Inter­net page was visi­ted by the data sub­ject. This infor­ma­ti­on is collec­ted through the Lin­kedIn com­po­nent and asso­cia­ted with the respec­tive Lin­kedIn account of the data sub­ject. If the data sub­ject clicks on one of the Lin­kedIn but­tons inte­gra­ted on our web­site, then Lin­kedIn assigns this infor­ma­ti­on to the per­so­nal Lin­kedIn user account of the data sub­ject and stores the per­so­nal data.

Lin­kedIn recei­ves infor­ma­ti­on via the Lin­kedIn com­po­nent that the data sub­ject has visi­ted our web­site, pro­vi­ded that the data sub­ject is log­ged in at Lin­kedIn at the time of the call-up to our web­site. This occurs regard­less of whe­ther the per­son clicks on the Lin­kedIn but­ton or not. If such a trans­mis­si­on of infor­ma­ti­on to Lin­kedIn is not desi­ra­ble for the data sub­ject, then he or she may pre­vent this by log­ging off from their Lin­kedIn account befo­re a call-up to our web­site is made.

23. Data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons about the app­li­ca­ti­on and use of Matomo

On this web­site, the con­trol­ler has inte­gra­ted the Matomo com­po­nent. Matomo is an open-source soft­ware tool for web ana­ly­sis. Web ana­ly­sis is the collec­tion, gathe­ring and eva­lua­ti­on of data on the beha­vi­or of visi­tors from Inter­net sites. A web ana­ly­sis tool collec­ts, inter alia, data on the web­site from which a data sub­ject came to a web­site (so-cal­led refer­rer), which pages of the web­site were acces­sed or how often and for which peri­od of time a sub-page was view­ed. A web ana­ly­sis is main­ly used for the opti­mi­za­ti­on of a web­site and the cost-bene­fit ana­ly­sis of Inter­net adver­ti­sing.

The soft­ware is ope­ra­ted on the ser­ver of the con­trol­ler, the data pro­tec­tion-sen­si­ti­ve log files are stored exclu­si­ve­ly on this ser­ver.

The pur­po­se of the Matomo com­po­nent is the ana­ly­sis of the visi­tor flows on our web­site. The con­trol­ler uses the obtai­ned data and infor­ma­ti­on, inter alia, to eva­lua­te the use of this web­site in order to com­pi­le online reports, which show the activi­ties on our Inter­net pages.

Matomo sets a coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject. The defi­ni­ti­on of coo­kies is exp­lai­ned above. With the set­ting of the coo­kie, an ana­ly­sis of the use of our web­site is enab­led. With each call-up to one of the indi­vi­du­al pages of this web­site, the Inter­net brow­ser on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject is auto­ma­ti­cal­ly through the Matomo com­po­nent promp­ted to sub­mit data for the pur­po­se of online ana­ly­sis to our ser­ver. During the cour­se of this tech­ni­cal pro­ce­du­re, we obtain know­ledge about per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on, such as the IP address of the data sub­ject, which ser­ves to under­stand the ori­gin of visi­tors and clicks.

The coo­kie is used to store per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on, such as the access time, the loca­ti­on from which access was made, and the fre­quen­cy of visits to our web­site. With each visit of our Inter­net pages, the­se per­so­nal data, inclu­ding the IP address of the Inter­net access used by the data sub­ject, are trans­fer­red to our ser­ver. The­se per­so­nal data will be stored by us. We do not for­ward this per­so­nal data to third par­ties.

The data sub­ject may, as sta­ted above, pre­vent the set­ting of coo­kies through our web­site at any time by means of a cor­re­spon­ding adjust­ment of the web brow­ser used and thus per­man­ent­ly deny the set­ting of coo­kies. Such an adjust­ment to the used Inter­net brow­ser would also pre­vent Matomo from set­ting a coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject. In addi­ti­on, coo­kies alrea­dy in use by Matomo may be dele­ted at any time via a web brow­ser or other soft­ware pro­grams.

In addi­ti­on, the data sub­ject has the pos­si­bi­li­ty of objec­ting to a collec­tion of data rela­ting to a use of this Inter­net site that are gene­ra­ted by Matomo as well as the pro­ces­sing of the­se data by Matomo and the chan­ce to pre­clu­de any such. For this, the data sub­ject must set a “Do Not Track” opti­on in the brow­ser.

With each set­ting of the opt-out coo­kie, howe­ver, the­re is the pos­si­bi­li­ty that the web­sites of the con­trol­ler are no lon­ger ful­ly usable for the data sub­ject.

Webtrekk allows the site ope­ra­tor to collect data on the use of the web­site, as well as indi­vi­dua­li­ze mar­ke­ting activi­ties.

The ope­ra­ting com­pa­ny of Webtrekk is Webtrekk GmbH, Robert-Koch-Platz 4, 10115 Ber­lin, Ger­ma­ny.

With each call-up to one of the indi­vi­du­al pages of this Inter­net site, which is ope­ra­ted by the con­trol­ler, Webtrekk collec­ts data for mar­ke­ting and opti­mi­sa­ti­on pur­po­ses and stores them. The pseud­ony­mi­zed user pro­files are used for the pur­po­se of ana­ly­zing visi­tor beha­vi­or and enab­ling an impro­ve­ment of our Inter­net offer. The data collec­ted via the Webtrekk com­po­nent are not used to iden­ti­fy the data sub­ject wit­hout first obtai­ning a sepa­ra­te and expli­cit con­sent from the data sub­ject. The­se data will not be mer­ged with per­so­nal data or with other data which con­tains the same pseud­onym.

Webtrekk sets a coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject. The defi­ni­ti­on of coo­kies is exp­lai­ned above. Webtrekk uses the data collec­ted from our web­site and infor­ma­ti­on on behalf of the con­trol­ler to ana­ly­ze user beha­viour of the data sub­ject, who has visi­ted our web­site. In addi­ti­on, Webtrekk uses the data to crea­te reports on user activi­ties on our behalf and pro­vi­de other ser­vices for our enter­pri­se, which are in rela­ti­on to the usa­ge of our web­site. The IP address of the data sub­ject is not mer­ged by Webtrekk with other per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on.

The data sub­ject may, as sta­ted above, pre­vent the set­ting of coo­kies through our web­site at any time by means of a cor­re­spon­ding adjust­ment of the web brow­ser used and thus per­man­ent­ly deny the set­ting of coo­kies. Such an adjust­ment to the used Inter­net brow­ser would also pre­vent Webtrekk from set­ting a coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject. In addi­ti­on, coo­kies alrea­dy in use by Webtrekk may be dele­ted at any time via a web brow­ser or other soft­ware pro­grams.

In addi­ti­on, the data sub­ject has the pos­si­bi­li­ty of objec­ting to a collec­tion of data that are gene­ra­ted by the Webtrekk coo­kie, rela­ting to a use of this Inter­net site, as well as the pro­ces­sing of the­se data by Webtrekk and the chan­ce to pre­clu­de any such.

This infor­ma­ti­on is collec­ted by You­Tube and Goog­le and assi­gned to the respec­tive You­Tube account of the data sub­ject.

You­Tube and Goog­le will recei­ve infor­ma­ti­on through the You­Tube com­po­nent that the data sub­ject has visi­ted our web­site, if the data sub­ject at the time of the call to our web­site is log­ged in on You­Tube; this occurs regard­less of whe­ther the per­son clicks on a You­Tube video or not. If such a trans­mis­si­on of this infor­ma­ti­on to You­Tube and Goog­le is not desi­ra­ble for the data sub­ject, the deli­very may be pre­ven­ted if the data sub­ject logs off from their own You­Tube account befo­re a call-up to our web­site is made.

29. Data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons about the app­li­ca­ti­on and use of the scala­b­le and cen­tral mea­su­ring sys­tem of the INFOn­line GmbH

On this web­site, the data con­trol­ler has inte­gra­ted a tracking pixel for real-time mea­su­rement. A tracking pixel is a minia­tu­re gra­phic embed­ded in Inter­net pages to enab­le log file record­ing and log file ana­ly­sis to sub­se­quent­ly per­form a sta­tis­ti­cal ana­ly­sis. The inte­gra­ted tracking pixels are used for the Scala­b­le Cen­tral Mea­su­rement Sys­tem (SZMS) of INFOn­line GmbH.

The Scala­b­le Cen­tral Mea­su­rement Sys­tem is ope­ra­ted by INFOn­line GmbH, Forum Bonn Nord, Brüh­ler Str. 9, 53119 Bonn, Ger­ma­ny.

The Scala­b­le Cen­tral Mea­su­rement Sys­tem is used to deter­mi­ne sta­tis­ti­cal rati­os, that is, the realm ran­ge mea­su­rement. The embed­ded tracking pixel is used to deter­mi­ne if, when and by how many users (inclu­ding the dataa sub­ject) our web­site was ope­ned and what con­tent was retrie­ved.

The data obtai­ned by means of the Scala­b­le Cen­tral Mea­su­rement Sys­tem are collec­ted anony­mously. In order to detect the access num­bers, a so-cal­led ses­si­on coo­kie is set up for the pur­po­se of the reco­gni­ti­on of the web­site users, e.g. a signa­tu­re is made which con­sists of various auto­ma­ti­cal­ly-trans­mit­ted infor­ma­ti­on, or uses alter­na­ti­ve methods. The IP address of the Inter­net used by the data sub­ject is collec­ted and pro­ces­sed in an anony­mous form only. The data sub­ject is not iden­ti­fied at any time.

The data sub­ject may, as sta­ted above, pre­vent the set­ting of coo­kies through our web­site at any time by means of a cor­re­spon­ding adjust­ment of the web brow­ser used and thus per­man­ent­ly deny the set­ting of coo­kies. Such an adjust­ment to the Inter­net brow­ser used would also pre­vent INFOn­line from set­ting a coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject. In addi­ti­on, coo­kies alrea­dy in use by INFOn­line may be dele­ted at any time via a web brow­ser or other soft­ware pro­grams.

In addi­ti­on, the data sub­ject has the pos­si­bi­li­ty of objec­ting to the collec­tion of data rela­ting to a use of this site that are gene­ra­ted by INFOn­line and the chan­ce to pre­clu­de any such. For this pur­po­se, the data sub­ject must press the ‘opt-out’ but­ton under the link http://optout.ioam.de which uses an opt-out coo­kie. If the coo­kies are dele­ted on the sys­tem of the data sub­ject, then the data sub­ject must call up the link again and set a new opt-out coo­kie.

With the set­ting of the opt-out coo­kie, howe­ver, the pos­si­bi­li­ty exists that the web­sites of the con­trol­ler are not ful­ly usable any­mo­re by the data sub­ject. The app­li­ca­ble data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons of INFOn­line may be acces­sed at https://www.infonline.de/datenschutz/.

30. Data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons about the app­li­ca­ti­on and use of Adcell

On this web­site, the con­trol­ler has inte­gra­ted com­pon­ents of AdCell. AdCell is a Ger­man affi­lia­te net­work, which offers affi­lia­te mar­ke­ting. Affi­lia­te mar­ke­ting is an Inter­net-based sales form that enab­les com­mer­ci­al ope­ra­tors of Inter­net sites, the so-cal­led mer­chants or adver­ti­sers, to place adver­ti­sing that is usual­ly paid via click or sale com­mis­si­ons on third-par­ty web­sites, e.g. sales part­ners, also cal­led affi­lia­tes or publishers. The mer­chant pro­vi­des, through the affi­lia­te net­work, an adver­ti­sing medi­um, e.g. an adver­ti­sing ban­ner or other sui­ta­ble means of Inter­net adver­ti­sing, which is sub­se­quent­ly inte­gra­ted by an affi­lia­te on their own Inter­net pages or pro­mo­ted via other chan­nels, such as key­word adver­ti­sing or e-mar­ke­ting.

The ope­ra­ting com­pa­ny of AdCell is First­lead GmbH, Rosen­fel­der St. 15–16, 10315 Ber­lin, Ger­ma­ny.

AdCell sets a coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject. The defi­ni­ti­on of coo­kies is exp­lai­ned above. The tracking coo­kie of AdCell stores no per­so­nal data. Only the iden­ti­fi­ca­ti­on num­ber of the affi­lia­te, that is, the part­ner media­ting the poten­ti­al custo­mer, as well as the ordi­nal num­ber of the visi­tor of a web­site and the cli­cked adver­ti­sing medi­um are stored. The pur­po­se of sto­ring this data is the pro­ces­sing of com­mis­si­on pay­ments bet­ween a mer­chant and affi­lia­te, which are pro­ces­sed via the affi­lia­te net­work, that is AdCell.

The data sub­ject may, as sta­ted above, pre­vent the set­ting of coo­kies through our web­site at any time by means of a cor­re­spon­ding adjust­ment of the web brow­ser use and thus per­man­ent­ly deny the set­ting of coo­kies. Such an adjust­ment to the Inter­net brow­ser used would also pre­vent AdCell from set­ting a coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject. In addi­ti­on, coo­kies alrea­dy in use by AdCell may be dele­ted at any time via a web brow­ser or other soft­ware pro­grams.

32. Data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons about the app­li­ca­ti­on and use of ADI­TI­ON

On this web­site, the con­trol­ler has inte­gra­ted com­pon­ents of ADI­TI­ON. ADI­TI­ON is a pro­vi­der of data-based digi­tal mar­ke­ting that pro­vi­des an adver­ti­sing plat­form tar­ge­ting adver­ti­sers and online mar­ke­ting agen­ci­es.

The ope­ra­ting com­pa­ny of ADI­TI­ON is ADI­TI­ON tech­no­lo­gies AG, Ost­stra­ße 55, 40211 Düs­sel­dorf, Ger­ma­ny.

The pur­po­se of ADI­TI­ON is the inser­ti­on of digi­tal adver­ti­sing media. ADI­TI­ON uses a coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject. The defi­ni­ti­on of coo­kies has alrea­dy been exp­lai­ned above. ADI­TI­ON does not store per­so­nal data in the coo­kie. All infor­ma­ti­on stored in the coo­kie is of a tech­ni­cal natu­re and enab­les con­trol­ler, inter alia, to under­stand how fre­quent­ly cer­tain adver­ti­se­ments are dis­play­ed.

The data sub­ject may, as sta­ted above, pre­vent the set­ting of coo­kies through our web­site at any time by means of a cor­re­spon­ding adjust­ment of the web brow­ser used and thus per­man­ent­ly deny the set­ting of coo­kies. Such an adjust­ment to the Inter­net brow­ser used would also pre­vent ADI­TI­ON from set­ting a coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject. In addi­ti­on, coo­kies alrea­dy in use by ADI­TI­ON may be dele­ted at any time via a web brow­ser or other soft­ware pro­grams.

In addi­ti­on, the data sub­ject has the pos­si­bi­li­ty of objec­ting to a collec­tion of data rela­ting to a use of this Inter­net site that are gene­ra­ted by the ADI­TI­ON coo­kie as well as the pro­ces­sing of the­se data by ADI­TI­ON and the chan­ce to pre­clu­de any such. For this pur­po­se, the data sub­ject must click a link under https://www.adition.com/kontakt/datenschutz/, which sets an opt-out coo­kie. The opt-out coo­kie is pla­ced on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem used by the data sub­ject. If the data sub­ject dele­tes the coo­kies on his sys­tem, then the data sub­ject must call up the link again and set a new opt-out coo­kie.

With the set­ting of the opt-out coo­kie, howe­ver, the pos­si­bi­li­ty exists that the web­sites of the con­trol­ler are not ent­i­re­ly usable any­mo­re by the data sub­ject.

33. Data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons about the app­li­ca­ti­on and use of AdJug

On this web­site, the con­trol­ler has inte­gra­ted com­pon­ents of AdJug. AdJug is an adver­ti­sing exchan­ge plat­form that pro­vi­des online adver­ti­sing (ban­ner adver­ti­sing).

The ope­ra­ting com­pa­ny of AdJug is AdJug Ltd. 5th Floor Glen House, 200–208 Tot­ten­ham Court Road, Lon­don, W1T7PL, United King­dom.

AdJug sets a coo­kie. Fur­ther­mo­re, with each call-up to a sin­gle page of this Inter­net site, which is ope­ra­ted by the con­trol­ler and on which an AdJug com­po­nent was inte­gra­ted, the Inter­net brow­ser on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject is auto­ma­ti­cal­ly promp­ted to sub­mit data through the cor­re­spon­ding AdJug com­po­nent for the pur­po­se of dis­play­ing adver­ti­se­ments deli­ve­r­ed by AdJug. In this tech­ni­cal pro­ce­du­re, AdJug gains infor­ma­ti­on that our web­site was acces­sed by the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem used by the data sub­ject. The data trans­mit­ted wit­hin the frame­work of the tech­ni­cal pro­ce­du­re of AdJug ser­ve for bil­ling pur­po­ses in rela­ti­on to the dis­play­ed adver­ti­sing.

The data sub­ject may, as sta­ted above, pre­vent the set­ting of coo­kies through our web­site at any time by means of a cor­re­spon­ding adjust­ment of the web brow­ser used and thus per­man­ent­ly deny the set­ting of coo­kies. Such an adjust­ment to the Inter­net brow­ser used would also pre­vent AdJug from set­ting a coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject. In addi­ti­on, coo­kies alrea­dy in use by AdJug may be dele­ted at any time via a web brow­ser or other soft­ware pro­grams.

In addi­ti­on, the data sub­ject has the pos­si­bi­li­ty of objec­ting to a collec­tion of data rela­ting to a use of this Inter­net site that are gene­ra­ted by the AdJug coo­kie as well as the pro­ces­sing of the­se data by AdJug and the chan­ce to pre­clu­de any such. For this pur­po­se, the data sub­ject must press the con­su­mer coo­kie opt-out link under http://www.de.adjug.com/datenschutz.html, which sets an opt-out coo­kie. The opt-out coo­kie, set for this pur­po­se, is pla­ced on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem used by the data sub­ject. If the coo­kies on the sys­tem of the data sub­ject are dele­ted, the data sub­ject must call-up the link again and set a new opt-out coo­kie.

With the set­ting of the opt-out coo­kie, howe­ver, the pos­si­bi­li­ty exists that the web­sites of the con­trol­ler are not ent­i­re­ly usable any­mo­re by the data sub­ject.

The app­li­ca­ble data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons of AdJug may be acces­sed under http://www.adjug.com/info/privacy.asp.

34. Legal basis for the pro­ces­sing

Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR ser­ves as the legal basis for pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons for which we obtain con­sent for a spe­ci­fic pro­ces­sing pur­po­se. If the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data is necessa­ry for the per­for­mance of a con­tract to which the data sub­ject is par­ty, as is the case, for examp­le, when pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons are necessa­ry for the sup­ply of goods or to pro­vi­de any other ser­vice, the pro­ces­sing is based on Arti­cle 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same app­lies to such pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons which are necessa­ry for car­ry­ing out pre-con­trac­tu­al mea­su­res, for examp­le in the case of inqui­ries con­cer­ning our pro­duc­ts or ser­vices. Is our com­pa­ny sub­ject to a legal obli­ga­ti­on by which pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data is requi­red, such as for the ful­fill­ment of tax obli­ga­ti­ons, the pro­ces­sing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR.
In rare cases, the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data may be necessa­ry to pro­tect the vital inte­rests of the data sub­ject or of ano­t­her natu­ral per­son. This would be the case, for examp­le, if a visi­tor were inju­red in our com­pa­ny and his name, age, health insuran­ce data or other vital infor­ma­ti­on would have to be pas­sed on to a doc­tor, hos­pi­tal or other third par­ty. Then the pro­ces­sing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR.
Final­ly, pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons could be based on Arti­cle 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons which are not cove­r­ed by any of the above­men­tio­ned legal grounds, if pro­ces­sing is necessa­ry for the pur­po­ses of the legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests pur­sued by our com­pa­ny or by a third par­ty, except whe­re such inte­rests are over­rid­den by the inte­rests or fun­da­men­tal rights and free­doms of the data sub­ject which requi­re pro­tec­tion of per­so­nal data. Such pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons are par­ti­cu­lar­ly per­mis­si­ble becau­se they have been spe­ci­fi­cal­ly men­tio­ned by the European legis­la­tor. He con­si­de­red that a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest could be assu­med if the data sub­ject is a cli­ent of the con­trol­ler (Reci­tal 47 Sen­tence 2 GDPR).

35. The legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests pur­sued by the con­trol­ler or by a third par­ty

Whe­re the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data is based on Arti­cle 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest is to car­ry out our busi­ness in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the share­hol­ders.

36. Peri­od for which the per­so­nal data will be stored

The cri­te­ria used to deter­mi­ne the peri­od of sto­rage of per­so­nal data is the respec­tive sta­tuto­ry reten­ti­on peri­od. After expi­ra­ti­on of that peri­od, the cor­re­spon­ding data is rou­ti­ne­ly dele­ted, as long as it is no lon­ger necessa­ry for the ful­fill­ment of the con­tract or the initia­ti­on of a con­tract.

37. Pro­vi­si­on of per­so­nal data as sta­tuto­ry or con­trac­tu­al requi­re­ment; Requi­re­ment necessa­ry to enter into a con­tract; Obli­ga­ti­on of the data sub­ject to pro­vi­de the per­so­nal data; pos­si­ble con­se­quen­ces of fail­u­re to pro­vi­de such data

We cla­ri­fy that the pro­vi­si­on of per­so­nal data is part­ly requi­red by law (e.g. tax regu­la­ti­ons) or can also result from con­trac­tu­al pro­vi­si­ons (e.g. infor­ma­ti­on on the con­trac­tu­al part­ner).

Some­ti­mes it may be necessa­ry to con­clu­de a con­tract that the data sub­ject pro­vi­des us with per­so­nal data, which must sub­se­quent­ly be pro­ces­sed by us. The data sub­ject is, for examp­le, obli­ged to pro­vi­de us with per­so­nal data when our com­pa­ny signs a con­tract with him or her. The non-pro­vi­si­on of the per­so­nal data would have the con­se­quence that the con­tract with the data sub­ject could not be con­clu­ded.

Befo­re per­so­nal data is pro­vi­ded by the data sub­ject, the data sub­ject must con­tact any employee. The employee cla­ri­fies to the data sub­ject whe­ther the pro­vi­si­on of the per­so­nal data is requi­red by law or con­tract or is necessa­ry for the con­clu­si­on of the con­tract, whe­ther the­re is an obli­ga­ti­on to pro­vi­de the per­so­nal data and the con­se­quen­ces of non-pro­vi­si­on of the per­so­nal data.

38. Exis­tence of auto­ma­ted decisi­on-making

As a respon­si­ble com­pa­ny, we do not use auto­ma­tic decisi­on-making or pro­filing.

This Pri­va­cy Poli­cy has been gene­ra­ted by the Pri­va­cy Poli­cy Gene­ra­tor of the DGD — Your Exter­nal DPO that was deve­lo­ped in coope­ra­ti­on with Ger­man Lawy­ers from WIL­DE BEU­GER SOL­ME­CKE, Colo­gne.
