The processing of personal data requires a legal basis, which we would like to present to you below.
For the processing of personal data for which we obtain the consent of the data subject, Article 6 paragraph 1 letter a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shall serve as the legal basis.
For the processing of personal data which is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract, where its party to the contract is the data subject, Article 6 paragraph 1 letter b of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shall serve as the legal basis. This includes processing operations necessary to perform pre-contractual measures.
If the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation, which our company is subject to, Article 6 paragraph 1 letter c of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shall serve as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not prevail over the first interest stated, then Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f GDPR shall serve as the legal basis for processing. The legitimate interest of our company is in the conduct of our business activities as well as in the analysis, optimisation and maintenance of the security of our online offer.


II. Log files, hosting

Data the further retention of which is required for evidentiary purposes shall be exempted from the deletion until the final clarification of the respective incident.

We make use of hosting services. These serve to provide infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, security and technical maintenance services to maintain the operation of this online offer.

a. Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics as a website analysis service. Google Analytics uses so-called “Cookies”, text files, which are stored on your computer and make it possible to analyse your use of the website. The information produced by the cookie concerning your use of this website (including your IP address) shall be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there. 

We would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the "_anonymizeIp()" extension and therefore IP addresses will be shortened before transfer by Google within the European Union or in other contractual states of the agreement on the European Economic Area to rule out direct personal references. Only in exceptional cases will the complete IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and abbreviated there.
By order of the provider, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website to compile reports concerning the website activities for the website operators and to render additional services linked with the use of the website and the Internet. Google shall also transfer this information to third parties if necessary, if this is statutorily stipulated or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google will under no circumstances link your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of the cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however we draw your attention to the fact that you may not be able to use all the functions of this website in that case.

b. Google AdWords and Conversation Tracking

This website uses "Google Adwords" and the conversion tracking as part of Google Adwords. When you click on an ad placed by Google, so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer, are set. The cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for the purpose of personal identification. This will permit Google and us to recognise that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. The conversation cookies are used to generate conversation statistics for AdWords customers. These customers are provided with the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. Personal identification is also not possible for these customers. You can opt-out by disabling the Google conversion tracking cookie in your Internet browser. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

YouTube uses cookies, among other things to record reliable video statistics, prevent fraud, and improve usability. The information produced by the cookie concerning your use of this website (including your IP address) will also be transmitted to YouTube servers in the United States and stored there.  Your IP address cannot be assigned to your account unless you have logged in or are permanently logged in to YouTube or another Google service before the page view. If you want to prevent such transmission of data you must log out from your YouTube account and your other Google accounts.
Through the YouTube cookies we receive statistical values to retrieve individual videos embedded in the website without reference to the respective user.
YouTube's embedded videos are used within the scope of the permitted use by YouTube, which all users must accept. If you detect copyright infringement, please report it directly to YouTube.

We draw your attention to the fact that we as the provider of the website do not receive any notification of the content of the transmitted data as well as its use by YouTube.
