Terms used

Per­sonal data” means any infor­ma­tion relat­ing to an iden­ti­fied or iden­ti­fi­able nat­ural per­son (here­inafter “data sub­ject”); a nat­ural per­son who can be iden­ti­fied, directly or indi­rectly, in par­tic­u­lar by ref­er­ence to an iden­ti­fier such as a name, an iden­ti­fi­ca­tion num­ber, loca­tion data, online iden­ti­fier (e.g. a cookie) or to one or more spe­cific char­ac­ter­is­tics which express the phys­i­cal, phys­i­o­log­i­cal, genetic, men­tal, eco­nomic, cul­tural or social iden­tity of that nat­ural per­son, is regarded as iden­ti­fi­able.

Pro­cess­ing” means any oper­a­tion car­ried out with or with­out the aid of auto­mated processes, or set of oper­a­tions, involv­ing per­sonal data. The term is broad and cov­ers prac­ti­cally every han­dling of data.

Pseu­do­nymi­sa­tion” means the pro­cess­ing of per­sonal data in such a way that the per­sonal data can no longer be attrib­uted to a spe­cific data sub­ject with­out the pro­vi­sion of addi­tional infor­ma­tion, pro­vided that such addi­tional infor­ma­tion is kept sep­a­rately and is sub­ject to tech­ni­cal and organ­i­sa­tional mea­sures ensur­ing that the per­sonal data are not attrib­uted to an iden­ti­fied or iden­ti­fi­able nat­ural per­son.

Pro­fil­ing” means any auto­mated pro­cess­ing of per­sonal data con­sist­ing of the use of such per­sonal data to eval­u­ate cer­tain per­sonal aspects relat­ing to a nat­ural per­son, in par­tic­u­lar to analyse or pre­dict aspects relat­ing to the work per­for­mance, eco­nomic sit­u­a­tion, health, per­sonal pref­er­ences, inter­ests, reli­a­bil­ity, con­duct, where­abouts or move­ments of that nat­ural per­son.

The “con­troller” is the nat­ural or legal per­son, pub­lic author­ity, agency or other body which alone or jointly with oth­ers deter­mines the pur­poses and means of the pro­cess­ing of per­sonal data.

Proces­sor” means a nat­ural or legal per­son, pub­lic author­ity, agency or other body which processes per­sonal data on behalf of the con­troller.


Applic­a­ble legal bases

In accor­dance with Art. 13 GDPR we inform you about the legal basis of our data pro­cess­ing. If the legal basis is not men­tioned in the data pro­tec­tion dec­la­ra­tion, the fol­low­ing applies: The legal basis for obtain­ing con­sent is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a and Art. 7 GDPR, the legal basis for pro­cess­ing in order to ful­fil our ser­vices and carry out con­trac­tual mea­sures as well as answer inquiries is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, the legal basis for pro­cess­ing in order to ful­fil our legal oblig­a­tions is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR, and the legal basis for pro­cess­ing in order to safe­guard our legit­i­mate inter­ests is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. In the event that vital inter­ests of the data sub­ject or another nat­ural per­son make pro­cess­ing of per­sonal data nec­es­sary, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.


Secu­rity mea­sures

In accor­dance with Art. 32 GDPR, we take appro­pri­ate tech­ni­cal and organ­i­sa­tional mea­sures to ensure a level of pro­tec­tion appro­pri­ate to the risk, tak­ing into account the state of the art, the imple­men­ta­tion costs and the nature, extent, cir­cum­stances and pur­poses of the pro­cess­ing as well as the dif­fer­ent prob­a­bil­ity of occur­rence and sever­ity of the risk to the rights and free­doms of nat­ural per­sons.

Such mea­sures shall include, in par­tic­u­lar, ensur­ing the con­fi­den­tial­ity, integrity and avail­abil­ity of data by con­trol­ling phys­i­cal access to, access to, inputting, dis­clo­sure, secur­ing and sep­a­ra­tion of data. In addi­tion, we have estab­lished pro­ce­dures to ensure the exer­cise of data sub­jects’ rights, the dele­tion of data and the response to data threats. Fur­ther­more, we take the pro­tec­tion of per­sonal data into account as early as the devel­op­ment or selec­tion of hard­ware, soft­ware and processes, in accor­dance with the prin­ci­ple of data pro­tec­tion through tech­nol­ogy design and data pro­tec­tion-friendly default set­tings (Art. 25 GDPR).


Coop­er­a­tion with con­tract proces­sors and third par­ties

Inso­far as we dis­close data to other per­sons and com­pa­nies (con­tract proces­sors or third par­ties) within the scope of our pro­cess­ing, trans­fer them to them or oth­er­wise grant them access to the data, this shall only take place on the basis of legal per­mis­sion (e.g. if a trans­fer of the data to third par­ties, such as pay­ment ser­vice providers, pur­suant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR is nec­es­sary for the per­for­mance of the con­tract), if you have con­sented to this, if a legal oblig­a­tion pro­vides for this or on the basis of our legit­i­mate inter­ests (e.g. when using agents, web hosts, etc.).

If we com­mis­sion third par­ties with the pro­cess­ing of data on the basis of a so-called “order pro­cess­ing con­tract”, this is done on the basis of Art. 28 GDPR.


Trans­fers to third coun­tries

If we process data in a third coun­try (i.e. out­side the Euro­pean Union (EU) or the Euro­pean Eco­nomic Area (EEA)) or if this is done in the con­text of the use of third-party ser­vices or dis­clo­sure or trans­fer of data to third par­ties, this will only occur if it is done to ful­fil our (pre)contractual oblig­a­tions, on the basis of your con­sent, a legal oblig­a­tion or on the basis of our legit­i­mate inter­ests. Sub­ject to legal or con­trac­tual per­mis­sions, we process or allow the data to be processed in a third coun­try only if the spe­cial require­ments of Art. 44 ff. of the Ger­man Data Pro­tec­tion Act are met. GDPR. This means that the pro­cess­ing takes place, for exam­ple, on the basis of spe­cial guar­an­tees, such as the offi­cially recog­nised deter­mi­na­tion of a data pro­tec­tion level cor­re­spond­ing to the EU (e.g. for the USA by the “Pri­vacy Shield”) or com­pli­ance with offi­cially recog­nised spe­cial con­trac­tual oblig­a­tions (so-called “stan­dard con­trac­tual clauses”).


Rights of data sub­jects

You have the right to request con­fir­ma­tion as to whether the data in ques­tion will be processed and to be informed of this data and to receive fur­ther infor­ma­tion and a copy of the data in accor­dance with Art. 15 GDPR.

You have accord­ingly. In accor­dance with Art. 16 GDPR, you have the right to request the com­ple­tion of data con­cern­ing you or the rec­ti­fi­ca­tion of incor­rect data con­cern­ing you.

Pur­suant to Art. 17 GDPR, you have the right to demand that the data con­cerned be deleted imme­di­ately or, alter­na­tively, to demand that the pro­cess­ing of the data be restricted pur­suant to Art. 18 GDPR.

You have the right to demand that the data con­cern­ing you which you have pro­vided to us be received in accor­dance with Art. 20 GDPR and that it be trans­ferred to other respon­si­ble par­ties.

Pur­suant to Art. 77 GDPR, you also have the right to file a com­plaint with the com­pe­tent super­vi­sory author­ity.


Right of with­drawal

They have the right to revoke con­sents granted pur­suant to Art. 7 para. 3 GDPR with effect for the future.


Right of objec­tion

You may object at any time to the future pro­cess­ing of the data con­cern­ing you in accor­dance with Art. 21 GDPR. In par­tic­u­lar, you may object to the pro­cess­ing of your data for the pur­poses of direct mar­ket­ing.


Cook­ies and right of objec­tion for direct appli­ca­tions

Cook­ies” are small files that are stored on the user’s com­puter. Dif­fer­ent data can be stored within the cook­ies. A cookie is pri­mar­ily used to store infor­ma­tion about a user (or the device on which the cookie is stored) dur­ing or after the user’s visit to an online ser­vice. Tem­po­rary cook­ies, or “ses­sion cook­ies” or “tran­sient cook­ies”, are cook­ies that are deleted after a user leaves an online offer and closes his browser. The con­tent of a shop­ping bas­ket in an online shop or a login sta­tus, for exam­ple, can be stored in such a cookie. Cook­ies are referred to as “per­ma­nent” or “per­sis­tent” and remain stored even after the browser is closed. For exam­ple, the login sta­tus can be saved if users visit it after sev­eral days. The inter­ests of the users who are used for range mea­sure­ment or mar­ket­ing pur­poses can also be stored in such a cookie. Third party cook­ies” are cook­ies that are offered by providers other than the per­son respon­si­ble for oper­at­ing the online ser­vice (oth­er­wise, if they are only the latter’s cook­ies, they are referred to as “first party cook­ies”).

We may use tem­po­rary and per­ma­nent cook­ies and explain this in our pri­vacy pol­icy.

If users do not wish cook­ies to be stored on their com­puter, they are asked to deac­ti­vate the cor­re­spond­ing option in the sys­tem set­tings of their browser. Stored cook­ies can be deleted in the sys­tem set­tings of your browser. The exclu­sion of cook­ies can lead to func­tional restric­tions of this online offer.

A gen­eral objec­tion to the use of cook­ies for online mar­ket­ing pur­poses can be raised for a large num­ber of ser­vices, espe­cially in the case of track­ing, via the US web­site http://​www​.aboutads​.info/​c​h​o​i​c​es/ or the EU web­site http://​www​.youron​line​choices​.com/. In addi­tion, cook­ies can be saved by deac­ti­vat­ing them in the browser set­tings. Please note that in this case not all func­tions of this online offer can be used.


Dele­tion of data

The data processed by us will be deleted or their pro­cess­ing restricted in accor­dance with Art. 17 and 18 GDPR. Unless expressly stated in this data pro­tec­tion dec­la­ra­tion, the data stored by us will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for their intended pur­pose and there are no legal oblig­a­tions to retain them. If the data are not deleted because they are required for other and legally per­mis­si­ble pur­poses, their pro­cess­ing will be restricted. This means that the data will be blocked and not processed for other pur­poses. This applies, for exam­ple, to data that must be stored for com­mer­cial or tax rea­sons.

Accord­ing to legal require­ments in Ger­many, data is stored for 10 years in accor­dance with §§ 147 para. 1 AO, 257 para. 1 nos. 1 and 4, para. 4 HGB (Ger­man Com­mer­cial Code) (books, records, man­age­ment reports, account­ing records, com­mer­cial books, doc­u­ments rel­e­vant for tax­a­tion, etc.) and 6 years in accor­dance with § 257 para. 1 nos. 2 and 3, para. 4 HGB (Ger­man Com­mer­cial Code) (com­mer­cial let­ters).

In accor­dance with legal require­ments in Aus­tria, the doc­u­ments are kept in par­tic­u­lar for 7 years in accor­dance with § 132 para. 1 BAO (account­ing doc­u­ments, receipts/invoices, accounts, receipts, busi­ness papers, list of income and expenses, etc.), for 22 years in con­nec­tion with real estate and for 10 years for doc­u­ments in con­nec­tion with elec­tron­i­cally pro­vided ser­vices, telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions, radio and tele­vi­sion ser­vices which are pro­vided to non-entre­pre­neurs in EU mem­ber states and for which the Mini-One-Stop-Shop (MOSS) is used.


Admin­is­tra­tion, finan­cial account­ing, office organ­i­sa­tion, con­tact man­age­ment

We process data in the con­text of admin­is­tra­tive tasks as well as the organ­i­sa­tion of our busi­ness, finan­cial account­ing and com­pli­ance with legal oblig­a­tions, such as archiv­ing. Here we process the same data that we process within the scope of pro­vid­ing our con­trac­tual ser­vices. The pro­cess­ing bases are Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c. GDPR, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR. Cus­tomers, inter­ested par­ties, busi­ness part­ners and web­site vis­i­tors are affected by the pro­cess­ing. The pur­pose and our inter­est in the pro­cess­ing lies in the admin­is­tra­tion, finan­cial account­ing, office orga­ni­za­tion, archiv­ing of data, i.e. tasks which serve the main­te­nance of our busi­ness activ­i­ties, per­for­mance of our tasks and pro­vi­sion of our ser­vices. The dele­tion of the data with regard to con­trac­tual ser­vices and con­trac­tual com­mu­ni­ca­tion cor­re­sponds to the data spec­i­fied in these pro­cess­ing activ­i­ties.

We dis­close or trans­mit data to the finan­cial admin­is­tra­tion, con­sul­tants, such as tax con­sul­tants or audi­tors, as well as other fee offices and pay­ment ser­vice providers.

Fur­ther­more, on the basis of our busi­ness inter­ests, we store infor­ma­tion on sup­pli­ers, organ­is­ers and other busi­ness part­ners, e.g. for the pur­pose of estab­lish­ing con­tact at a later date. This data, which is mainly com­pany-related, is stored per­ma­nently.


Data pro­tec­tion infor­ma­tion in the appli­ca­tion process

We process the appli­cant data only for the pur­pose and within the frame­work of the appli­ca­tion pro­ce­dure in accor­dance with the legal require­ments. The pro­cess­ing of the appli­cant data is car­ried out to ful­fil our (pre)contractual oblig­a­tions within the scope of the appli­ca­tion pro­ce­dure in the sense of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b. GDPR Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR inso­far as data pro­cess­ing becomes nec­es­sary for us, e.g. within the frame­work of legal pro­ceed­ings (in Ger­many, § 26 BDSG addi­tion­ally applies).

The appli­ca­tion pro­ce­dure requires that appli­cants pro­vide us with the appli­cant data. If we offer an online form, the nec­es­sary appli­cant data is marked, oth­er­wise it results from the job descrip­tions and basi­cally includes the per­sonal details, postal and con­tact addresses and the doc­u­ments belong­ing to the appli­ca­tion, such as cover let­ter, cur­ricu­lum vitae and cer­tifi­cates. In addi­tion, appli­cants may vol­un­tar­ily pro­vide us with addi­tional infor­ma­tion.

By sub­mit­ting their appli­ca­tion to us, appli­cants con­sent to the pro­cess­ing of their data for the pur­poses of the appli­ca­tion pro­ce­dure in accor­dance with the type and scope set out in this data pro­tec­tion dec­la­ra­tion.

If spe­cial cat­e­gories of per­sonal data within the mean­ing of Art. 9 Para. 1 GDPR are vol­un­tar­ily pro­vided as part of the appli­ca­tion process, they will also be processed in accor­dance with Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. b GDPR (e.g. health data, such as severely dis­abled sta­tus or eth­nic ori­gin). Inso­far as spe­cial cat­e­gories of per­sonal data within the mean­ing of Art. 9 para. 1 GDPR are requested from appli­cants as part of the appli­ca­tion pro­ce­dure, their pro­cess­ing will also be car­ried out in accor­dance with Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR (e.g. health data if they are required for the exer­cise of a pro­fes­sion).

If pro­vided, appli­cants can sub­mit their appli­ca­tions via an online form on our web­site. The data will be trans­mit­ted to us encrypted accord­ing to the state of the art.
Appli­cants can also send us their appli­ca­tions by e-mail. Please note, how­ever, that e-mails are gen­er­ally not sent in encrypted form and the appli­cants them­selves must ensure that they are encrypted. We there­fore can­not assume any respon­si­bil­ity for the trans­mis­sion path of the appli­ca­tion between the sender and the recep­tion on our server and there­fore rec­om­mend using an online form or postal dis­patch. Instead of apply­ing using the online form and e-mail, appli­cants still have the option of send­ing their appli­ca­tion by post.

In the event of a suc­cess­ful appli­ca­tion, the data pro­vided by the appli­cants can be fur­ther processed by us for the pur­poses of the employ­ment rela­tion­ship. Oth­er­wise, if the appli­ca­tion for a job offer is not suc­cess­ful, the applicant’s data will be deleted. Appli­cant data will also be deleted if an appli­ca­tion is with­drawn, which appli­cants are enti­tled to do at any time.

Sub­ject to jus­ti­fied revo­ca­tion by the appli­cants, the data will be deleted after a period of six months so that we can answer any fol­low-up ques­tions regard­ing the appli­ca­tion and meet our oblig­a­tions to pro­vide evi­dence under the Equal Treat­ment Act. Invoices for any reim­burse­ment of travel expenses will be archived in accor­dance with the pro­vi­sions of tax law.


Tal­ent pool

As part of the appli­ca­tion process, we offer appli­cants the oppor­tu­nity to be included in our “tal­ent pool” for a period of two years on the basis of con­sent as defined in Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b. and Art. 7 GDPR.

The appli­ca­tion doc­u­ments in the tal­ent pool will be processed solely within the frame­work of future job adver­tise­ments and the employee search and will be destroyed at the lat­est after expiry of the dead­line. Appli­cants are informed that their con­sent to inclu­sion in the tal­ent pool is vol­un­tary, has no influ­ence on the cur­rent appli­ca­tion pro­ce­dure and that they can revoke this con­sent at any time for the future and declare objec­tions within the mean­ing of Art. 21 GDPR.


Con­tact­ing

When con­tact­ing us (e.g. via con­tact form, e-mail, tele­phone or via social media), the user’s details will be processed for the pur­pose of pro­cess­ing the con­tact enquiry and pro­cess­ing it in accor­dance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR. User data can be stored in a cus­tomer rela­tion­ship man­age­ment sys­tem (“CRM sys­tem”) or a com­pa­ra­ble enquiry organ­i­sa­tion.

We delete the enquiries if they are no longer nec­es­sary. We check the neces­sity every two years; fur­ther­more, the statu­tory archiv­ing oblig­a­tions apply.


Newslet­ter

With the fol­low­ing infor­ma­tion we inform you about the con­tents of our newslet­ter as well as the reg­is­tra­tion, dis­patch and sta­tis­ti­cal eval­u­a­tion pro­ce­dures and your rights of objec­tion. By sub­scrib­ing to our newslet­ter, you declare your agree­ment with the receipt and the described pro­ce­dures.

Con­tent of the newslet­ter: We send newslet­ters, e-mails and other elec­tronic noti­fi­ca­tions con­tain­ing adver­tis­ing infor­ma­tion (here­inafter referred to as “newslet­ter”) only with the con­sent of the recip­i­ent or legal per­mis­sion. If the con­tents of the newslet­ter are specif­i­cally described within the scope of reg­is­tra­tion, they are deci­sive for the con­sent of the user. In addi­tion, our newslet­ters con­tain infor­ma­tion about our ser­vices and us.

Dou­ble-Opt-In and log­ging: The reg­is­tra­tion to our newslet­ter takes place in a so-called Dou­ble-Opt-In pro­ce­dure. I.e. after reg­is­tra­tion you will receive an e-mail in which you will be asked to con­firm your reg­is­tra­tion. This con­fir­ma­tion is nec­es­sary so that nobody can reg­is­ter with exter­nal e-mail addresses. The reg­is­tra­tions for the newslet­ter are logged in order to be able to prove the reg­is­tra­tion process accord­ing to the legal require­ments. This includes the stor­age of the reg­is­tra­tion and con­fir­ma­tion time, as well as the IP address. Like­wise the changes of your data stored with the Ver­sand­di­en­stleis­ter are logged.

Reg­is­tra­tion data: To sub­scribe to the newslet­ter, it is suf­fi­cient to enter your e-mail address. Option­ally, we ask you to enter a name in the newslet­ter for the pur­pose of address­ing you per­son­ally.

The dis­patch of the newslet­ter and the per­for­mance mea­sure­ment asso­ci­ated with it are based on the con­sent of the recip­i­ents in accor­dance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a, Art. 7 GDPR in con­junc­tion with § 7 Para. 2 No. 3 UWG or, if con­sent is not required, on our legit­i­mate inter­ests in direct mar­ket­ing in accor­dance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lt. f. GDPR in con­nec­tion with § 7 Abs. 3 UWG.

The reg­is­tra­tion pro­ce­dure is recorded on the basis of our legit­i­mate inter­ests pur­suant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our inter­est is directed towards the use of a user-friendly and secure newslet­ter sys­tem that serves our busi­ness inter­ests as well as the expec­ta­tions of the users and fur­ther­more allows us to pro­vide evi­dence of con­sent.

Cancellation/revocation — You can can­cel the receipt of our newslet­ter at any time, i.e. revoke your con­sent. You will find a link to can­cel the newslet­ter at the end of each newslet­ter. We may store the unsub­scribed e-mail addresses for up to three years on the basis of our legit­i­mate inter­ests before delet­ing them in order to be able to pro­vide evi­dence of a pre­vi­ously given con­sent. The pro­cess­ing of this data is lim­ited to the pur­pose of a pos­si­ble defence against claims. An indi­vid­ual request for dele­tion is pos­si­ble at any time, pro­vided that the for­mer exis­tence of a con­sent is con­firmed at the same time.


Newslet­ter – Clev­er­Reach

The newslet­ter will be sent by Clev­er­Reach GmbH & Co. KG, Müh­len­str. 43, 26180 Rast­ede, Ger­many. You can view the data pro­tec­tion reg­u­la­tions of the ship­ping ser­vice provider here: https://​www​.clev​er​reach​.com/​e​n​/​p​r​i​v​a​c​y​-​p​o​l​i​cy/. The ship­ping ser­vice provider is used on the basis of our legit­i­mate inter­ests pur­suant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR and an order pro­cess­ing con­tract pur­suant to Art. 28 para. 3 sen­tence 1 GDPR.

The dis­patch ser­vice provider can use the data of the recip­i­ents in pseu­do­ny­mous form, i.e. with­out allo­ca­tion to a user, to opti­mise or improve its own ser­vices, e.g. for tech­ni­cal opti­mi­sa­tion of dis­patch and pre­sen­ta­tion of the newslet­ter or for sta­tis­ti­cal pur­poses. How­ever, the dis­patch ser­vice provider does not use the data of our newslet­ter recip­i­ents to write to them itself or to pass the data on to third par­ties.


Newslet­ter — Suc­cess Mea­sure­ment

The newslet­ters con­tain a so-called “web-bea­con”, i.e. a file the size of a pixel, which is retrieved from our server when the newslet­ter is opened or, if we use a dis­patch ser­vice provider, from its server. Within the scope of this retrieval, tech­ni­cal infor­ma­tion such as infor­ma­tion about the browser and your sys­tem, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval are first col­lected.

This infor­ma­tion is used to tech­ni­cally improve the ser­vices on the basis of tech­ni­cal data or tar­get groups and their read­ing behav­iour on the basis of their retrieval loca­tions (which can be deter­mined with the help of the IP address) or access times. The sta­tis­ti­cal sur­veys also include deter­min­ing whether the newslet­ters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For tech­ni­cal rea­sons, this infor­ma­tion can be assigned to the indi­vid­ual newslet­ter recip­i­ents. It is, how­ever, nei­ther our endeav­our nor, if used, that of the dis­patch ser­vice provider to observe indi­vid­ual users. The eval­u­a­tions serve us much more to rec­og­nize the read­ing habits of our users and to adapt our con­tents to them or to send dif­fer­ent con­tents accord­ing to the inter­ests of our users.

Tar­get group for­ma­tion with Google Ana­lyt­ics

We use Google Ana­lyt­ics to dis­play ads placed by Google and its part­ners within our adver­tis­ing ser­vices only to users who have shown an inter­est in our online ser­vices or who have spe­cific char­ac­ter­is­tics (e.g. inter­ests in spe­cific top­ics or prod­ucts deter­mined on the basis of the web­sites vis­ited) that we trans­mit to Google (so-called “remar­ket­ing” or “Google Ana­lyt­ics Audi­ences”). With the help of remar­ket­ing audi­ences, we also want to ensure that our ads match the poten­tial inter­est of users.


Google AdWords and Con­ver­sion Mea­sure­ment

On the basis of our legit­i­mate inter­ests (i.e. inter­est in the analy­sis, opti­mi­sa­tion and eco­nomic oper­a­tion of our online offer in the sense of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. of the Ger­man Civil Code), we make use of the infor­ma­tion pro­vided on this web­site. GDPR) the ser­vices of Google LLC, 1600 Amphithe­atre Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043, USA, (“Google”).

Google is cer­ti­fied under the Pri­vacy Shield Agree­ment and thus offers a guar­an­tee of com­pli­ance with Euro­pean data pro­tec­tion law (https://​www​.pri​va​cyshield​.gov/​p​a​r​t​i​c​i​p​a​n​t​?​i​d​=​a​2​z​t​0​0​0​0​0​0​0​0​1​L​5​A​A​I​&​s​t​a​t​u​s​=​A​c​t​ive).

We use the Google “AdWords” online mar­ket­ing process to place ads on the Google adver­tis­ing net­work (e.g., in search results, videos, web­sites, etc.) so that they are dis­played to users who have a sus­pected inter­est in the ads. This allows us to dis­play ads for and within our online offer­ings in a more tar­geted man­ner in order to present users only with ads that poten­tially match their inter­ests. If, for exam­ple, a user is shown ads for prod­ucts in which he or she is inter­ested in other online offers, this is referred to as “remar­ket­ing”. For these pur­poses, when our and other web­sites on which the Google Adver­tis­ing Net­work is active are called up, a Google code is exe­cuted directly by Google and so-called (re)marketing tags (invis­i­ble graph­ics or code, also referred to as “web bea­cons”) are inte­grated into the web­site. With their help, an indi­vid­ual cookie, i.e. a small file, is stored on the user’s device (com­pa­ra­ble tech­nolo­gies can also be used instead of cook­ies). This file records which web­sites the user vis­its, what con­tent he is inter­ested in and what offers the user has clicked, as well as tech­ni­cal infor­ma­tion on the browser and oper­at­ing sys­tem, refer­ring web­sites, visit times and other infor­ma­tion on the use of the online ser­vice.

Fur­ther­more, we receive an indi­vid­ual “con­ver­sion cookie”. The infor­ma­tion obtained with the help of the cookie is used by Google to com­pile con­ver­sion sta­tis­tics for us. How­ever, we only know the anony­mous total num­ber of users who clicked on our ad and were redi­rected to a page with a con­ver­sion track­ing tag. How­ever, we do not receive any per­son­ally iden­ti­fi­able infor­ma­tion.

User infor­ma­tion is processed pseu­do­ny­mously within the Google Adver­tis­ing Net­work. This means, for exam­ple, that Google does not store and process the user’s name or e-mail address, but processes the rel­e­vant data cookie-related within pseu­do­ny­mous user pro­files. This means that, from Google’s point of view, the ads are not admin­is­tered and dis­played for a specif­i­cally iden­ti­fied per­son, but for the cookie holder, regard­less of who this cookie holder is. This does not apply if a user has expressly per­mit­ted Google to process the data with­out this pseu­do­nymi­sa­tion. The infor­ma­tion col­lected about users is trans­mit­ted to Google and stored on Google’s servers in the United States.

Online pres­ences in social media

We main­tain online pres­ences within social net­works and plat­forms in order to be able to com­mu­ni­cate with cus­tomers, inter­ested par­ties and users active there and to inform them about our ser­vices. When call­ing up the respec­tive net­works and plat­forms, the terms and con­di­tions and data pro­cess­ing guide­lines of their respec­tive oper­a­tors apply.

Inte­gra­tion of third-party ser­vices and con­tent

Within the scope of our online offer, we act on the basis of our legit­i­mate inter­ests (i.e. inter­est in the analy­sis, opti­mi­sa­tion and eco­nomic oper­a­tion of our online offer within the mean­ing of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. of the Ger­man Civil Code). GDPR) con­tent or ser­vice offers from third par­ties in order to inte­grate their con­tent and ser­vices, such as videos or fonts (here­inafter uni­formly referred to as “con­tent”).

This always pre­sup­poses that the third-party providers of this con­tent per­ceive the IP address of the user, since they would not be able to send the con­tent to their browser with­out the IP address. The IP address is there­fore required for the pre­sen­ta­tion of this con­tent. We make every effort to use only those con­tents whose respec­tive providers only use the IP address to deliver the con­tents. Third party providers may also use so-called pixel tags (invis­i­ble graph­ics, also known as “web bea­cons”) for sta­tis­ti­cal or mar­ket­ing pur­poses. Pixel tags” can be used to eval­u­ate infor­ma­tion such as vis­i­tor traf­fic on the pages of this web­site. The pseu­do­ny­mous infor­ma­tion may also be stored in cook­ies on the user’s device and may con­tain, among other things, tech­ni­cal infor­ma­tion about the browser and oper­at­ing sys­tem, refer­ring web pages, visit times and other infor­ma­tion about the use of our online ser­vices, as well as may be linked to such infor­ma­tion from other sources.

We use the Google “Dou­bleclick” online mar­ket­ing process to place ads on the Google adver­tis­ing net­work (e.g., in search results, videos, web­sites, etc.). Dou­ble Click is char­ac­ter­ized by the fact that ads are dis­played in real time based on users’ sus­pected inter­ests. This allows us to dis­play ads for and within our online offer­ing in a more tar­geted man­ner to present users only with ads that poten­tially match their inter­ests. If, for exam­ple, a user is shown ads for prod­ucts in which he or she is inter­ested in other online offers, this is referred to as “remar­ket­ing”. For these pur­poses, when our and other web­sites on which the Google Adver­tis­ing Net­work is active are called up, Google exe­cutes a code directly from Google and so-called (re)marketing tags (invis­i­ble graph­ics or code, also known as “web bea­cons”) are inte­grated into the web­site.

The IP address of the user is also recorded, whereby this is short­ened within mem­ber states of the Euro­pean Union or in other sig­na­tory states to the Agree­ment on the Euro­pean Eco­nomic Area and only in excep­tional cases is it com­pletely trans­mit­ted to a Google server in the USA and short­ened there. Google may also link the above infor­ma­tion to such infor­ma­tion from other sources. If the user sub­se­quently vis­its other web­sites, ads tai­lored to the user’s pro­file may be dis­played accord­ing to the user’s pre­sumed inter­ests.

User data is processed pseu­do­ny­mously within the Google adver­tis­ing net­work.

When a user calls up a func­tion of this online ser­vice that con­tains such a plu­gin, his device estab­lishes a direct con­nec­tion with Facebook’s servers. The con­tent of the plu­gin is trans­mit­ted directly from Face­book to the user’s device and inte­grated into the online ser­vice by the user. User pro­files can be cre­ated from the processed data. We there­fore have no influ­ence on the extent of the data that Face­book col­lects with the help of this plu­gin and there­fore inform the user accord­ing to our state of knowl­edge.

By inte­grat­ing the plu­g­ins, Face­book receives the infor­ma­tion that a user has called up the cor­re­spond­ing page of the online offer.

Shar­iff Shar­ing Func­tions

We use the pri­vacy-secure “Shar­iff” but­tons. “Shar­iff” is designed to pro­vide more pri­vacy on the web and to replace the usual “share” but­tons on social net­works. It is not the user’s browser, but the server on which this online ser­vice is located, which estab­lishes a con­nec­tion with the server of the respec­tive social media plat­forms and queries, for exam­ple, the num­ber of likes, etc.. The user remains anony­mous. More infor­ma­tion about the Shar­iff project can be found at the devel­op­ers of the mag­a­zine c’t: www​.ct​.de.
