VI. GOOGLE ANALYTICS

Our website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. The provider is Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

Google Analytics uses so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device. These text files can be read from the respective websites and help to identify you when you visit a website again.

The information generated by a cookie about your use of this website is transmitted to a Google server and stored there. We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This means that your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the USA. The full IP address is only transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there in exceptional cases. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services related to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

For the exceptional cases in which personal data are transferred to the USA, Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework
The storage of Google Analytics cookies is based on your consent, Art. 6 section 1 lit. a of the GDPR.

You can prevent the use of Google Analytics at any time, either by installing the Google browser plug-in, which sets an opt-out cookie, or by selecting the appropriate setting in your browser software. Both options prevent the use of web analytics only if you use the browser on which you installed the plug-in and if you do not delete the opt-out cookie. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. Further information can be found at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=us and https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html .
You can find more information on handling user data at Google Analytics in Google’s data protection declaration: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=us.

VII. YOUTUBE

We have included YouTube videos in our online offer, which are stored on http://www.youtube.com and can be played directly from our website.
By visiting the website, YouTube receives the information that you have accessed from the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the data that is collected when you visit our website for information purposes is transmitted. This takes place regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account that you are logged into or whether there is no user account. If you are logged in at Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not want your profile to be associated with YouTube, you must log out before activating the button.

YouTube stores your data as user profiles and uses them for advertising, market research and/or the design of its website to meet your needs. Such evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide demand-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.

By integrating the YouTube video into our online presence, a connection to the Google Double-Click network is automatically established even in extended data protection mode when you call up our website. This means that cookies are not set in the browser. If, however, DoubleClick cookies are already stored in your browser, they will be transmitted as part of the request. According to the information from YouTube, a data transfer only takes place when you play the video.

Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by YouTube can be found in Google’s privacy policy. You will also find further information there on your rights and setting options to protect your privacy: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy.

Google also processes your personal data in the USA and is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

VIII. STORAGE PERIODS

We will store your personal data only for as long as is necessary to provide the services, sell our products or provide the information you have requested from us, and to manage the business relationship with you.

In addition, we are required by applicable law to retain certain personal information for periods specified by law (such as in connection with business transactions).

Your personal data will be deleted immediately if they are no longer required for the purposes mentioned.

IX. YOUR RIGHTS

According to the statutory regulations, you have the following rights as the data subject within the meaning of the GDPR:

  • The right of access to your personal data: this enables you to obtain a copy of the personal data that we process about you and to verify whether we process it lawfully;
  • The right to rectify the personal data that we process from you: this allows you to have incomplete or inaccurate data corrected;

In particular, you have a right to object if we process your data for direct marketing purposes;
  • The right to restrict the processing of your personal data: this allows you to request the suspension of the processing of your personal information, for example, if you would like us to verify its accuracy or the basis of the processing; and
  • Under certain circumstances, the right to have your personal data transmitted to another controller.

If you have given us your consent for the processing of your personal data in individual cases, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time without this affecting the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.
