3. Kind of data we collect and process

We collect different categories of personal data from you. Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person; a natural person is regarded as identifiable, which can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by association with an identifier such as a name. Personal information includes, for example, information such as your name, address, telephone number and date of birth (if indicated). Statistical information that cannot be directly or indirectly linked to you – such as the popularity of individual websites or the number of users of a page – is not personal information. There are directly and indirectly collected data. In both cases, data is collected only to the extent necessary; the data will be processed exclusively for the purposes mentioned under point 2. Whether you want to provide us with data that, while optimizing the use of our services for you, but are not necessary is in your decision. Corresponding data fields are marked as ‘voluntary’.

 

Data collected directly include:

  • Mail address, name, company and phone number as part of our contact form to get in direct communication with you
  • Applicant details for our online application procedure
  • Data, which you send us actively and consciously while using our services,
  • Further data, provided by you voluntarily, e.g. through completing data fields, tagged as ‚optional‘.

In addition, while using our services data are collected indirectly, among them:

  • Technical connection data, e.g. pages viewed on our website, your IP address, date and time of access device used for the access, browser configuration data.

Minors:

Our website is not directed to minors and we do not knowingly collect personal data of minors.

 

The transfer of personal data from persons less than 16 years old is permitted only under the condition the guardian himself has given his permission or agreed to the consent of the minor.  According to Art. 8 (2) GDPR the contact details of the guardian should be sent to us, so we can make sure of consent or permission of the guardian. These data as well as data of the minor will be processed according to this data protection declaration.

 

In case a minor less than 16 years old has sent personal data to us without permission of the guardian or approval of the consent of the minor, we will delete the data immediately.

 

 

4. Who has access to your data and to whom we transmit your data

 

a) Access of data

Access to your personal data stored by us is limited to our employees, and the service providers commissioned by us, who must deal with these personal data because of their task.

 

If third parties have access to your data, we have obtained the permission from you or there is a legal basis for this.

 

We also use service providers to provide services and to process your data. As far as special provisions apply to these, we have these listed below for each service for you. The service providers process the data exclusively on the instructions of us and have been obliged to comply with the applicable data protection regulations. All processors have been selected carefully and will only have access to your data required for the provision of the services to the extent and for the period required, or to the extent to which you have consented to the processing and use of the data.

 

b) Data transfer within the business group

Exchange of data within our business group takes places exclusively within the European Union /EEA and serves exclusively internal administrative purposes. The definition of business group includes associated companies within the meaning of Art. 4 (19) GDPR.

 

c) Data transfer to third countries and legal basis

The servers of some of the service providers we use are located in the US and other countries outside the European Union. Companies in these countries are subject to a data protection law that generally does not protect personal data to the same extent as in the Member States of the European Union. If your information is processed in a country that does not have a recognized level of data protection, such as the European Union, we will use contractual or other recognized means to ensure that your personal data are protected appropriately. We particularly point it out to you in the context of the individual services.

 

If a transfer of personal data takes place in third countries, this is done based on the adequacy decision of the EU Commission on the EU-US Privacy Shield pursuant to Art. 45 GDPR or the EU Standard Contract 2010 pursuant to Art. 46 (2) (c) GDPR in conjunction with the decision of the European Commission dated 05.02.2010 (2010/87 / EU) or based on your consent in accordance with Art. 49 (1) (a) GDPR.

 

d) Data transfer to law enforcements and criminal investigation authorities

In exceptional cases we deliver personal data to law enforcements and criminal investigation authorities, due to corresponding legal obligations, e.g. from the criminal procedure code, fiscal code, money-laundering act or state police laws.

5. Storage period

We will store your personal data in accordance with the provisions of the law or your consent.
Key criteria for the storage period include:

We are storing personal data until the purposes for their collection ceases to be relevant (e.g. at termination of a contract or with last activity in case there is no continuing obligation or in case of withdrawal of your consent for data processing).

Data are stored beyond this only if

  • Statutory storage obligations exist (e.g. commercial code and fiscal code);
  • the data are still required for the assertion and exercise of legal claims or for defense against legal claims, for example due to technological and forensic requirements to ward off attacks on our web servers and their prosecution;
  • the cancellation would be contrary to the legitimate interest of the persons concerned;
  • another exception pursuant to Art. 17 (3) GDPR applies.

6. Rights of the data subject

7. Use of our website – Profiling, Cookies and Web Tracking

 

a) Cookies and opt-out options in general

We use so-called cookies in some areas of our website, for example, in order to recognize the preferences of the visitors and to be able to optimally design the website accordingly. This allows easier navigation and a high degree of user-friendliness of a website. Cookies also help us identify particularly popular areas of our website. Cookies are small files that are stored on the hard disk of a visitor. They allow to keep information for a certain period of time and to identify the visitor’s computer. For better user guidance and individual performance, we use permanent cookies.

 

We also use so-called session cookies, which are deleted automatically when you close your browser. You can adjust your browser to inform you about the placement of cookies. So, the use of cookies becomes transparent for you. This is done to verify the authorization of actions and the authentication of the requesting user of our services on the legal basis of Art. 6 (1) (c) in conjunction with Art. 32 and Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is to secure our web server, for example to defend against attacks, and to ensure the functionality of our services.

 

We do not set technically necessary cookies until you have given your consent explicitly, which you can, of course, withdraw at any time.

 

As part of our cookie information on our website, you have agreed to the following statement:

 

This website uses tracking cookies or tracking software to assist you, i.a. to provide the full functionality of our website and thus a better online experience. For further information on the cookies and web tracking methods used and the consent you have given, please see our privacy policy. However, technically unnecessary cookies or our tracking software are not activated until you have given us your consent.

 

If you exclude the use of cookies completely, you cannot use individual functions of our website – including the possibility of cookie-based opt-out of tracking. Please allow opt-out cookies from those services where you would like to stop tracking.

 

Please also keep in mind that deleting all cookies will result in opt-out cookies being deleted as well. You may have to reset this if necessary. Cookies are also browser-bound, i.e. they must always be set separately for each browser you use on each device you use. The necessary links can be found below in the description of the respective service.

b)Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google beforehand within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. One way to object to web analytics through Google Analytics is to set an opt-out cookie that instructs Google not to store or use your information for web analytics purposes. Please note that with this solution, the web analysis will only be made as long as the opt-out cookie is saved by the browser. If you want to set the opt-out cookie now, please click

You can also prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website completely. In addition, you may prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading the browser plug-in available under the following link and install.

This service is governed by Google’s privacy policy (https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/policies/privacy/), supplemented by the separate privacy policy for Google Maps (https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/help/terms_maps.html).

 

You can prevent the execution of Google Maps by selectively preventing the execution of the Java Script code used by using a Java Script Blocker; Alternatively, however, you can disable the execution of Java Script in your browser settings completely.
