§ 3 Coll­ec­tion of per­so­nal data when you are visi­ting our website

(1) In the case of mere infor­ma­tio­nal use of the web­site, i.e. if you do not regis­ter or other­wi­se trans­mit infor­ma­ti­on to us, we only coll­ect the per­so­nal data that your brow­ser trans­mits to our ser­ver. If you wish to view our web­site, we coll­ect the fol­lo­wing data, which is tech­ni­cal­ly neces­sa­ry for us to dis­play our web­site to you and ensu­re its sta­bi­li­ty and secu­ri­ty (the legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) 1 f) GDPR): – IP address – date and time of the request – time zone dif­fe­rence to Green­wich Mean Time (GMT) – con­tent of the request (spe­ci­fic page) – access status/HTTP sta­tus code – amount of data trans­fer­red in each case – web­site from which the request comes – brow­ser – ope­ra­ting sys­tem and its inter­face – lan­guage and ver­si­on of the brow­ser software.

(2) In addi­ti­on to the afo­re­men­tio­ned data, coo­kies are stored on your com­pu­ter when you use our web­site. Coo­kies are small text files that are stored on your hard dri­ve and allo­ca­ted to the brow­ser used by you and which pro­vi­de the par­ty set­ting the coo­kie (in this case, us) with cer­tain infor­ma­ti­on. Coo­kies can­not exe­cu­te pro­gram­mes or trans­fer viru­s­es to your com­pu­ter. They help to make the inter­net pre­sen­ta­ti­on as a who­le more user-fri­end­ly and effective.

(3) Use of coo­kies: a) This web­site uses the fol­lo­wing types of coo­kies, the scope and func­tion­a­li­ty of which are explai­ned her­ein­af­ter: – Tran­si­ent coo­kies (see b) – Per­sis­tent coo­kies (see c). b) Tran­si­ent coo­kies are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted when you clo­se the brow­ser. The­se include, in par­ti­cu­lar, ses­si­on coo­kies. The­se store a so-cal­led ses­si­on ID, by which various requests from your brow­ser can be assi­gned to the joint ses­si­on. This enables us to reco­g­ni­se your com­pu­ter when you come back to our web­site. The ses­si­on coo­kies are dele­ted when you log out or clo­se the brow­ser. c) Per­sis­tent coo­kies are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted after a spe­ci­fied peri­od of time, which may dif­fer depen­ding on the coo­kie. You can dele­te the coo­kies in the secu­ri­ty set­tings of your brow­ser at any time. d) You can con­fi­gu­re your brow­ser set­tings accor­ding to your wis­hes and, for exam­p­le, refu­se to accept third-par­ty coo­kies or all coo­kies. Plea­se note that, in this case, you may not be able to use all func­tions of this website.

§ 4 Newsletter

(1) You may con­sent to the sub­scrip­ti­on of our news­let­ter, by which we inform you about our cur­rent inte­res­t­ing ser­vices and offers. The adver­ti­sed goods and ser­vices are spe­ci­fied in the decla­ra­ti­on of consent.

(2) We use the so-cal­led dou­ble-opt-in pro­ce­du­re for the news­let­ter regis­tra­ti­on. This means that after your regis­tra­ti­on, we will send you an email to the email address you have pro­vi­ded, in which we ask you to con­firm that you wish to recei­ve the news­let­ter. If you do not con­firm your regis­tra­ti­on within 24 hours, your infor­ma­ti­on will be blo­cked and auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted after one month. In addi­ti­on, we store your IP addres­ses and the times of regis­tra­ti­on and con­fir­ma­ti­on. The pur­po­se of this pro­ce­du­re is to pro­ve your regis­tra­ti­on and, if neces­sa­ry, cla­ri­fy a pos­si­ble misu­se of your per­so­nal data.

(3) Only your email address is neces­s­a­ri­ly requi­red for sen­ding the news­let­ter. The pro­vi­si­on of fur­ther, spe­ci­fi­cal­ly mark­ed data is vol­un­t­a­ry and such data will be used to address you per­so­nal­ly. After your con­fir­ma­ti­on, we will store your e‑mail address for the pur­po­se of sen­ding you the news­let­ter. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) 1 a) GDPR.

(4) You can revo­ke your con­sent to recei­ving the news­let­ter at any time and unsub­scri­be from the news­let­ter. You can decla­re the revo­ca­ti­on by cli­cking the link pro­vi­ded in every news­let­ter email or by sen­ding a mes­sa­ge to the cont­act data pro­vi­ded in the legal information.

§ 5 Use of Goog­le Analytics

(1) This web­site uses Goog­le Ana­ly­tics, a web ana­ly­tics ser­vice pro­vi­ded by Goog­le, Inc („Goog­le“). Goog­le Ana­ly­tics uses „coo­kies“, which are text files pla­ced on your com­pu­ter to help ana­ly­se how you use the web­site. 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, in the event that IP anony­mi­sa­ti­on is acti­va­ted on this web­site, Goog­le will trun­ca­te your IP address before­hand within mem­ber sta­tes of the Euro­pean Uni­on or in other con­trac­ting sta­tes to the Agree­ment on the Euro­pean Eco­no­mic Area. Only in excep­tio­nal cases will the full IP address be trans­mit­ted to a Goog­le ser­ver in the USA and trun­ca­ted the­re. On behalf of the ope­ra­tor of this web­site, Goog­le will use this infor­ma­ti­on for the pur­po­se of ana­ly­sing your use of the web­site, com­pi­ling reports on the web­site acti­vi­ties and pro­vi­ding other ser­vices rela­ting to the use of the web­site and inter­net usa­ge to the web­site operator.

(2) The IP address trans­mit­ted by your brow­ser as part of Goog­le Ana­ly­tics will not be mer­ged with other Goog­le data.

(3) You may refu­se the use of coo­kies by sel­ec­ting the appro­pria­te set­tings in your brow­ser soft­ware; howe­ver, plea­se note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full func­tion­a­li­ty of this web­site. You can also pre­vent the coll­ec­tion of data gene­ra­ted by the coo­kie to ana­ly­se your use of the web­site (inclu­ding your IP address) by Goog­le and the pro­ces­sing of this data by Goog­le by down­loa­ding and instal­ling the brow­ser plug-in available at the fol­lo­wing link:

(4) This web­site uses Goog­le Ana­ly­tics with the exten­si­on „_anonymizeIp()“. This means that IP addres­ses are pro­ces­sed in trun­ca­ted form so that any per­so­nal iden­ti­fi­ca­ti­on is excluded. This means that, if any data coll­ec­ted from you is rela­ted to you per­so­nal­ly, any per­so­nal refe­rence or iden­ti­fi­ca­ti­on will be auto­ma­ti­cal­ly excluded and the per­so­nal data is dele­ted immediately.

(5) We use Goog­le Ana­ly­tics to ana­ly­se and regu­lar­ly impro­ve the use of our web­site. The sta­tis­tics obtai­ned enable us to impro­ve our ser­vice offer and make it more inte­res­t­ing for you as a user. For excep­tio­nal cases in which per­so­nal data is trans­fer­red to the USA, Goog­le has agreed to join and com­ply with the EU-US Pri­va­cy Shield, The legal basis for the use of Goog­le Ana­ly­tics is Art. 6 (1) 1 f) GDPR. Rechts­grund­la­ge für die Nut­zung von Goog­le Ana­ly­tics ist Art. 6 Abs. 1 S. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.
