  1. the scope of processing of personal data

In order to ensure the functionality of our website and the provision of our contents and services, it is necessary that we collect and use personal data of our users.

Personal data is stored and processed exclusively on servers in the European Union.

All data is encrypted using the SSL procedure.

Data processing is based on the legal provisions of Art 6 Paragraph 1 lit a (consent) and/or f (justified interest) of the DSGVO. If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.

Any use beyond this shall only take place with the express consent of the customer. In detail, data is collected and processed as follows.

Log file data is automatically collected on our server when you visit our website and stored in an internal log file, which is transmitted to us via your browser. This involves the following data:

  • Type and version of the browser you use,
  • Type and version of the operating system you use,
  • URL of the page from which you reached us,
  • Search words you used to find our site,
  • Date and time of access to our website,
  • Names of the subpages you have called up.

We collect and process these data in an anonymous form, i.e. they cannot be assigned to a specific person. The purpose of the data collection and processing is the evaluation for internal system-related and statistical purposes. Furthermore, for the purpose of technical security, in particular to defend against attempts to attack our web server; furthermore, for abuse control in case of suspicion and to clarify the suspicion of a criminally relevant use. The IP address is only evaluated in the event of attacks on our network infrastructure.

We use your e-mail address to complete a registration process on our pages via a confirmation e-mail and to send you confirmation e-mails about the orders you have placed. The legal basis for processing the data is Art 6 Paragraph 1 lit b (necessary for the fulfilment of the contract) of the DSGVO.

Payment data – Account or credit card data are used for the processing of orders with costs. The legal basis for processing the data is Art 6 Paragraph 1 lit b (necessary for the fulfilment of the contract) of the DSGVO.

If the newsletter of our company is subscribed to, the data in the respective input mask is transmitted to the person responsible for processing.

When subscribing to the newsletter, the user’s IP address and the date and time of registration are stored. This serves to prevent misuse of the services or the e-mail address of the person concerned. The data will not be passed on to third parties. An exception is made if there is a legal obligation to pass on data.

The data is used exclusively for sending the newsletter. The subscription to the newsletter can be cancelled by the person concerned at any time. Similarly, the consent to the storage of personal data can be revoked at any time. For this purpose there is a corresponding link in every newsletter.

The legal basis for the processing of the data after registration for the newsletter by the user is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO if the user has given his consent. The legal basis for sending the newsletter as a result of the sale of goods or services is Art. 7 Para. 3 UWG.

If you have consented to the use of your e-mail address for receiving our newsletter and sending offers, you have submitted the following declaration of consent to us.

“By ticking this box, you confirm that you have read and agree to our terms of use for the storage of data transmitted via this form”.

We have recorded your declaration of consent. 

If you use the contact form on our website, which can be used for electronic contact or contact us via our e-mail address, the personal data you transmit will be stored automatically. The storage is solely for the purpose of processing or contacting the person concerned. The data will not be passed on to third parties. The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO if the user has given his consent.

The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6, Paragraph 1, letter f of the DSGVO. If the e-mail contact is aimed at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for processing is Art. 6 para. 1 letter b DSGVO.

III Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the persons concerned for processing of personal data, Art. 6 paragraph serves as a basis. 1 lit. a EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data which is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 paragraph 1 letter b DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to the processing operations required to implement pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.

  1. Recipients of the data or categories of recipients

Once your data has been entered and transmitted, it is sent directly via an encrypted connection to the server of the external service provider One.com Group AB, organisation number 559205-2400 Hyllie Stationstorg 2, 215 32 Malmö, Sweden.

Recipients of the data are public bodies that receive data on the basis of legal regulations (e.g. social insurance agencies, tax authorities), internal bodies involved in the execution of the respective business processes (personnel administration, accounting, banking institutes/payment service providers, accounting, customer service, marketing, sales), in the case of shipping products to the transport company/forwarding agent commissioned by us, contractual partners, business partners to the extent required or permitted by legal regulations.

Data will not be transferred to third parties, with the exception of the transfer of credit card data to the processing company for the purpose of debiting the purchase price, to the transport company/forwarding company commissioned by us for the delivery of the goods and to our tax advisor for the fulfilment of our tax obligations.

After entering and transmitting your data, it is transferred directly via an encrypted connection to the server of an external service provider.

  1. Routine deletion and storage of personal data

We process and store personal data of the person concerned only for the period of time required to achieve the purpose of storage or if this has been provided for by the European Directive and Regulation Giver or another legislator in laws or regulations to which the person responsible for processing is subject.

If the purpose of storage ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Giver or any other competent legislator expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with the statutory provisions.

In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the relevant session is ended.

In the case of a newsletter subscription, this is the case as long as the subscription is active.

  1. your rights as a user

If your personal data is processed, you are the data subject within the meaning of the DSGVO and you are entitled to the following rights vis-à-vis the person responsible:

  • Right of access to information
  1. You can request confirmation from the person responsible as to whether personal data concerning you is being processed by us. If such processing has taken place, you can request information from the data controller on the following:
  2. the purposes for which the personal data are processed;
  3. the categories of personal data which are processed;
  4. the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been or will be disclosed;
  5. the planned duration of storage of the personal data relating to you or, if it is not possible to give specific details, criteria for determining the duration of storage;
  6. the existence of a right of rectification or erasure of personal data concerning you, a right to have the processing limited by the controller or a right to object to such processing;
  7. the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;
  8. any available information concerning the origin of the data when the personal data are not collected from the data subject;
  9. the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, in accordance with Article 22(1) and (4) of the DPA and, at least in these cases, meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope and intended impact of such processing on the data subject.

You have the right to obtain information as to whether the personal data concerning you are being transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you may request to be informed of the appropriate safeguards in accordance with Article 46 of the DPA in connection with the transfer.

  • Right of rectification

You have the right to ask the data controller to correct and/or complete any personal data processed concerning you if it is incorrect or incomplete. The data controller must make the correction without delay.

  • Right to restrict processing

Under the following conditions, you may request that the processing of personal data concerning you be restricted:

  1. if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period of time that allows the person responsible to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
  2. if the processing is unlawful and you object to the deletion of the personal data and request instead the restriction of the use of the personal data;
  3. the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you need it for the purposes of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims; or
  4. if you have lodged an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DSGVO and it has not yet been established whether the legitimate reasons given by the controller outweigh your reasons.

If the processing of personal data relating to you has been restricted, such data, apart from being stored, may be processed only with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on grounds of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State.

If the restriction on processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.

  • Right of cancellation

You have the right to ask the data controller to delete the personal data concerning you immediately, and the data controller is obliged to delete such data immediately if one of the following reasons applies:

  1. The personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
  2. You revoke your consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a or Art. 9 (2) lit. a DSGVO and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
  3. You object to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 (1) DSGVO and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or you object to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 (2) DSGVO.
  4. The personal data concerning you have been processed unlawfully.
  5. The deletion of personal data concerning you is necessary to comply with a legal obligation under Union or national law to which the controller is subject.
  6. The personal data concerning you have been collected in relation to the information society services offered in accordance with Art. 8 para. 1 DSGVO.

If the controller has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged to delete them in accordance with Article 17 paragraph 1 of the DS-GVO, he/she will take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account available technology and implementation costs, to inform data controllers who process the personal data that you, as a data subject, have requested them to delete all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data.

The right of cancellation does not apply if the processing is necessary

  1. on the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information;
  2. to comply with a legal obligation requiring processing under Union or national law to which the controller is subject or to carry out a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
  3. for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to Article 9 (2) (h) and (i) and Article 9 (3) DSGVO;
  4. for archiving, scientific or historical research purposes in the public interest or for statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89 (1) of the DS-GVO, where the right referred to in paragraph 1 is likely to make it impossible or seriously hamper the achievement of the purposes of such processing, or
  5. to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
  • Right to information

If you have asserted the right to rectify, erase or limit the processing vis-à-vis the controller, the controller is obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of this rectification, erasure or limitation of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

You have the right to be informed of these recipients by the data controller.

  • Right to data transferability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the data controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You also have the right to have this data communicated to another controller without interference from the controller to whom the personal data has been communicated, provided that

  1. the processing is based on a consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) DS-GVO or Article 9(2)(a) DS-GVO or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) DS-GVO and
  2. the processing is carried out using automated procedures.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to obtain that the personal data concerning you be communicated directly from one controller to another controller, as far as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.

The right to data transferability does not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

  • Right of objection

You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data relating to you which is carried out pursuant to Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DPA; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The controller will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless he can demonstrate compelling legitimate reasons for processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or unless the processing is for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.

If the personal data concerning you are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing, including profiling, insofar as it is linked to such direct marketing.

If you object to processing for the purposes of direct marketing, your personal data will no longer be processed for those purposes.

In the context of the use of Information Society services, and without prejudice to Directive 2002/58/EC, you have the possibility of exercising your right of objection by means of automated procedures involving technical specifications.

  • Right to withdraw the declaration of consent under data protection law

You have the right to revoke your data protection declaration of consent at any time. Revocation of your consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing that has taken place on the basis of your consent until revocation.

  • Automated decision in individual cases including profiling

They have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning them or significantly affects them in a similar way. This does not apply if the decision

  1. is necessary for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract between you and the person responsible
  2. is authorised by Union law or by the law of the Member States to which the person responsible is subject and that law provides for appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests; or
  3. with your express consent.

However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 (1) DSGVO, unless Art. 9 (2) lit. a or g applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.

  • With regard to the cases referred to in 1. and 3. above, the controller shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, which shall include at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person from the controller, to express his point of view and to challenge the decision.
  • Right of appeal to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State in which you are resident, your place of work or the place where the alleged infringement occurred, if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you is in breach of the DS Block Exemption Regulation.

The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged will inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 of the DSGVO.

VII. possibility of information, objection, correction and removal

You have the possibility at any time to revoke your consent to the processing of your personal data with effect for the future and to have your personal data deleted or amended. If the data is required for the fulfilment of the contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, the data can only be deleted prematurely if there are no contractual or legal obligations that prevent deletion.

Requests for information, correction and deletion as well as the revocation or objection regarding the further use of the data of any consents given to us can be declared informally as follows:

VIII. Information on cookies

We use so-called “cookies” for our websites. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. By setting cookies, our web server can recognise your browser, your individual settings in our web pages and, if necessary, parts of the registration data in encrypted form, thus making it easier for you to use our pages and enabling automatic login.

The purpose of using technically necessary cookies is to simplify the use of websites for users. Some functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. This requires that the browser is recognised even after a change of page. The user data collected by technically necessary cookies is not used to create user profiles.

Cookies are stored on the user’s computer and are transmitted by the user to our site. Therefore you as a user have full control over the use of cookies. Your browser settings allow you to refuse cookies, delete cookies from your computer, block cookies or be prompted before a cookie is set. The cookies we set are deleted from your computer after each session. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may not be possible to use all the functions of the website to their full extent.

We require cookies for the following applications.

Session cookies

We use so-called cookies with our internet presence. Cookies are small text files or other storage technologies that are stored on your terminal device by the Internet browser you use. Through these cookies, certain information about you, such as your browser or location data or your IP address, is processed to an individual extent.

This processing makes our Internet presence more user-friendly, effective and secure, as the processing enables, for example, the reproduction of our Internet presence in different languages or the offer of a shopping basket function.

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b.) DSGVO, insofar as these cookies process data for the purpose of contract initiation or contract implementation.

If the processing does not serve the purpose of contract initiation or contract processing, our legitimate interest lies in the improvement of the functionality of our Internet presence. The legal basis is then Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

These session cookies are deleted when you close your Internet browser.

Third party cookies

Where appropriate, our website may also use cookies from partner companies with whom we cooperate for the purposes of advertising, analysis or the functionalities of our website.

For details on this, in particular on the purposes and legal basis for processing such third-party cookies, please refer to the following information.

Disposal option

You can prevent or restrict the installation of cookies by adjusting your Internet browser settings. You can also delete already stored cookies at any time. However, the steps and measures required for this depend on the Internet browser you are actually using. If you have any questions, please use the help function or documentation of your Internet browser or contact its manufacturer or support. In the case of so-called flash cookies, however, processing cannot be prevented by the browser settings. Instead, you must change the settings of your Flash player. The steps and measures required for this also depend on the Flash Player you are actually using. If you have any questions, please also use the help function or documentation of your Flash Player or contact the manufacturer or user support.

If you prevent or restrict the installation of cookies, this may, however, mean that not all functions of our website can be used to their full extent..

Contract execution

The data transmitted by you to use our range of goods and/or services will be processed by us for the purpose of processing the contract and is required in this respect. Conclusion and processing of the contract are not possible without providing your data.

The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

We delete the data when the contract has been completely processed, but in doing so we must observe the retention periods under tax and commercial law.

Within the scope of contract processing, we will pass on your data to the transport company commissioned with the delivery of goods or to the financial service provider, insofar as the passing on of data is necessary for the delivery of goods or for payment purposes.

The legal basis for the passing on of data is then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

Customer account / registration function

If you create a customer account with us via our website, we will collect and store the data you enter during registration (e.g. your name, your address or your e-mail address) exclusively for pre-contractual services, for the fulfilment of the contract or for the purpose of customer care (e.g. to provide you with an overview of your previous orders with us or to offer you the so-called notepad function). At the same time, we then save the IP address and the date of your registration together with the time. Of course, this data will not be passed on to third parties.

Within the scope of the further registration process, your consent to this processing will be obtained and reference will be made to this data protection declaration. The data collected by us in the process will be used exclusively for the provision of the customer account.

Insofar as you consent to this processing, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO is the legal basis for the processing.

If the opening of the customer account also serves the purpose of pre-contractual measures or the fulfilment of the contract, the legal basis for this processing is also Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

You may revoke the consent granted to us to open and maintain the customer account at any time with effect for the future pursuant to Art. 7 para. 3 DSGVO. All you have to do is inform us of your revocation.

The data collected in this respect will be deleted as soon as processing is no longer necessary. However, we must observe the storage periods under tax and commercial law.

Newsletter

If you register for our free newsletter, the data requested by you for this purpose, i.e. your e-mail address and – optionally – your name and address, will be transmitted to us. At the same time, we save the IP address of the Internet connection from which you access our website as well as the date and time of your registration. During the further registration process, we will obtain your consent to send you the newsletter, describe the content specifically and refer you to this data protection declaration. We use the data collected in the process exclusively for sending the newsletter – they will therefore not be passed on to third parties.

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO.

You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time with effect for the future in accordance with Art. 7 para. 3 DSGVO. To do so, you must simply inform us of your revocation or click on the unsubscribe link contained in every newsletter.

Contact enquiries / Contact possibility

If you contact us via contact form or e-mail, the data you provide will be used to process your request. The provision of the data is necessary for processing and answering your enquiry – without the provision of this data, we cannot answer your enquiry or can only answer it to a limited extent.

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

Your data will be deleted if your enquiry has been finally answered and if there are no legal obligations to retain data, e.g. in the case of a possible subsequent processing of a contract..

User contributions, comments and ratings

We offer you the opportunity to publish questions, answers, opinions or evaluations, hereinafter only “contributions”, on our Internet pages. If you make use of this offer, we will process and publish your contribution, the date and time of submission and the pseudonym you may use.

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future in accordance with Art. 7 para. 3 DSGVO. All you have to do is inform us of your revocation.

In addition, we also process your IP and e-mail address. The IP address is processed because we have a legitimate interest in initiating or supporting further steps if your contribution infringes the rights of third parties and/or is otherwise illegal.

The legal basis in this case is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in any necessary legal defence.

Subscription of articles

If you publish articles on our website, we also offer you the option of subscribing to any subsequent articles by third parties. In order to be able to inform you about these subsequent contributions by e-mail, we process your e-mail address.

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. You can revoke your consent to this subscription at any time with effect for the future in accordance with Art. 7 para. 3 DSGVO. To do so, you must simply inform us of your revocation or click on the unsubscribe link contained in the respective e-mail.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics in our Internet presence. This is a web analysis service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter only referred to as “Google”.

Through the certification according to the EU-US Privacy Shield

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

guarantees Google that the EU’s data protection requirements will be respected even when processing data in the US.

The Google Analytics service is used to analyse the usage behaviour of our website. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our website.

Usage and user-related information, such as IP address, place, time or frequency of the visit to our website, is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, we use Google Analytics with the so-called anonymisation function. With this function Google shortens the IP address already within the EU or EEA.

The data collected in this way is in turn used by Google to provide us with an evaluation of the visit to our website and the usage activities there. This data can also be used to provide further services related to the use of our website and the use of the Internet.

Google states that it will not link your IP address to other data. Furthermore, Google keeps a record of your IP address under

https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners

will provide you with further information on data protection law, for example on the possibilities of preventing the use of data.

In addition, Google also offers under the following link

https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

a so-called deactivation add-on together with further information on this. This add-on can be installed with the most common Internet browsers and offers you further control options over the data that Google collects when you call up our website. The add-on informs the JavaScript (ga.js) of Google Analytics that information about your visit to our website should not be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, this does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analysis services. Whether and which other web analysis services are used by us is of course also explained in this data protection declaration.

Google Fonts

In our internet presence we use Google Fonts to display external fonts. This is a service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google” only.

Through certification according to the EU-US Privacy Shield

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

guarantees Google that the EU’s data protection requirements will be respected even when processing data in the US.

To enable the display of certain fonts on our website, a connection to the Google server in the USA is established when our website is called up.

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the optimisation and economic operation of our internet presence.

The connection to Google established when you access our website enables Google to determine the website from which your enquiry has been sent and the IP address to which the representation of the font is to be sent.

Google offers under

https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated

https://policies.google.com/privacy

further information, in particular on how to prevent the use of data.

„Facebook“-Social-Plug-in

  • In our internet presence we use the plugin of the social network Facebook. Facebook is an internet service of facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. In the EU, this service is in turn operated by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland, hereinafter both referred to as “Facebook”.
  • Through certification under the EU-US Privacy Shield

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active

guarantees Facebook that the EU’s data protection rules will be respected even when processing data in the US.

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in improving the quality of our Internet presence.

Further information about the possible plug-ins and their respective functions can be found on Facebook at

https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/

ready for you.

If the plug-in is stored on one of the pages of our website that you visit, your Internet browser will download a representation of the plug-in from the Facebook servers in the USA. For technical reasons, it is necessary for Facebook to process your IP address. In addition, the date and time of your visit to our website are also recorded.

If you are logged in to Facebook while visiting one of our Internet pages equipped with the plug-in, the information collected by the plug-in during your specific visit will be recognised by Facebook. Facebook may assign the information collected in this way to your personal user account there. For example, if you use the “Like” button on Facebook, this information is stored in your Facebook user account and, if applicable, published on the Facebook platform. If you wish to prevent this, you must either log out of Facebook before visiting our website or prevent the loading of the Facebook plug-in from being blocked by using an add-on for your internet browser.

Facebook keeps further information about the collection and use of data as well as your rights and protection options in this regard in the sections on

https://www.facebook.com/policy.php

„Twitter“-Social-Plug-in

We use the Twitter social network plug-in on our website. Twitter is an internet service of Twitter Inc, 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA, hereinafter only referred to as “Twitter”.

Through certification according to the EU-US Privacy Shield

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000TORzAAO&status=Active

guarantees Twitter that EU data protection rules will be respected even when processing data in the US.

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in improving the quality of our Internet presence.

If the plug-in is stored on one of the pages of our Internet presence that you visit, your Internet browser will download a representation of the plug-in from the servers of Twitter in the USA. For technical reasons, it is necessary for Twitter to process your IP address. In addition, the date and time of your visit to our website are also recorded.

If you are logged on to Twitter while visiting one of our websites equipped with the plug-in, the information collected by the plug-in during your specific visit will be recognised by Twitter. Twitter may assign the information collected in this way to your personal user account there. For example, if you use the so-called “share” button on Twitter, this information will be stored in your Twitter user account and published on the Twitter platform. If you wish to prevent this, you must either log out of Twitter before visiting our website or make the appropriate settings in your Twitter user account.

Twitter keeps further information about the collection and use of data as well as your rights and protection options in this regard in the sections on

Pixel of the collecting society WORT (VG WORT)

In our Internet presence we use the so-called counting pixel of VG WORT of the provider INFOnline GmbH, Forum Bonn Nord, Brühler Str. 9, 53119 Bonn, in the form of the so-called SZM (Scalable Central Measurement Method).

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the optimisation and economic operation of our website and in the consideration of copyright interests with regard to the contents of our website.

The counting pixel is a graphic which is placed in our internet presence and which determines statistical key figures. This makes it possible to calculate the probability of texts being copied based on the number of hits and the specific content of our website. This data is collected anonymously. In order to be able to record the number of accesses and your possible recurring visit, either a so-called session cookie is stored on your terminal device by your Internet browser or a signature is used, which is generated from various information of your Internet browser (e.g. user agent, screen resolution, etc.). However, your IP address is only processed in anonymised form. You are not identifiable as an individual user at any time.

If you do not agree with this processing, you have the option of preventing the storage of the cookie by means of a setting in your Internet browser. You will find more detailed information on this under “Cookies” above. You also have the option of terminating the SZM measurement by means of the so-called opt-out. By confirming the link

a cookie is stored on your terminal device via your internet browser, which prevents further analysis. Please note, however, that you will have to click the above link again if you delete the cookies stored on your terminal device.

YouTube

We use YouTube in our Internet presence. This is a video portal of YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, hereinafter only referred to as “YouTube”.

YouTube is a subsidiary of Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter only referred to as “Google”.

Through certification according to the EU-US Privacy Shield

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

guarantees Google, and with it its subsidiary YouTube, that the EU’s data protection requirements will also be complied with when processing data in the USA.

We use YouTube in conjunction with the “Enhanced Privacy Mode” feature to show you videos. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in improving the quality of our Internet presence. According to YouTube, the function “Extended Privacy Mode” has the effect that the data described in more detail below is only transmitted to the YouTube server when you actually start a video.

Without this “Extended Privacy Mode”, a connection to the YouTube server in the USA is established as soon as you call up one of our Internet pages on which a YouTube video is embedded.

This connection is required in order to display the respective video on our website via your internet browser. In the course of this, YouTube will at least record and process your IP address, the date and time as well as the website you visit. In addition, a connection to the “DoubleClick” advertising network of Google is established.

If you are logged into YouTube at the same time, YouTube will assign the connection information to your YouTube account. If you wish to prevent this, you must either log out of YouTube before visiting our website or make the appropriate settings in your YouTube user account.

For the purpose of functionality as well as for the analysis of usage behaviour, YouTube permanently stores cookies via your internet browser on your end device. If you do not agree to this processing, you have the possibility to prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your internet browser settings. You will find more detailed information on this under “Cookies” above.
