Google Analytics

  • Scope of personal data processing
    Our site uses the web tracking service provided by the company Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as “Google Analytics”). As part of its web tracking Google Analytics uses cookies, which are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of our website and your internet use (referred to as “tracking”).

In using our website data such as your IP address and your user activity will be transmitted to servers of the company Google Ireland Limited and processed and saved outside of the European Union, e.g. in the USA.
    The EU Commission has determined that an appropriate degree of data protection may exist in the USA if the company processing the data has signed up to the US-EU Privacy Shield Framework thus ensuring the reliable transfer of data to the USA. By enabling IP anonymisation within the Google Analytics tracking code of this website, your IP address will be anonymised by Google Analytics before transmission. This website uses a Google Analytics tracking code that has been given the extension Operator gat._anonymizeIP(); to enable anonymous recording of IP addresses only (referred to as IP masking).
  • Legal basis for processing personal data
    Article 6(1)(a) GDPR (consent), either during the process of registering with Google (opening a Google account and accepting the privacy notices in place there) or, if you have not yet registered with Google, by means of explicit consent granted by entering our website.
    Google will use this information on our behalf to analyse your visit to this website, compile reports about your website activities and to provide us with other services associated with website use and internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of the Google Analytics service will not be conflated with other data held by Google Ireland Limited.
  • Storage duration
    Google will store the data required for the provision of web tracking as long as is necessary to fulfil the web service booked. Data will be recorded and stored anonymously. If, however, a personal connection does in fact exist, the data recorded will be deleted immediately, insofar as no statutory retention periods apply. Erasure takes place upon expiry of the retention obligation in any case.
  • Right to object and erasure
    You can prevent personal data from being recorded and forwarded to Google (in particular your IP address) and processed by Google by disabling the running of script code in your browser, installing a script blocker in your browser (you can find this at https://www.noscript.net or https://www.ghostery.com/) or enabling the “Do not track” setting in your browser. You can also prevent the data generated by the Google cookie in relation to your use of the website from being recorded (including your IP address), sent to, and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).

  • Scope of personal data processing
    We use cookies on the some of the pages of our website to enable the use of certain functions of our website. “Cookies” are small text files that can be stored on your computer by your browser. These text files contain a characteristic character string that enables your browser to be uniquely identified upon revisiting our website. The process of storing a cookie file is also referred to as “setting a cookie”.
  • Legal basis for processing personal data
    Article 6(1)(f) GDPR (justified interest). Our legitimate interest consists in preserving the full functionality of our website, improving user-friendliness and enabling a more custom customer approach. We can only identify individual site visitors using cookies if the site visitor has already provided us with personal data beforehand on the basis of separate consent.
  • Purpose of data processing
    Our website uses cookies to preserve the full functionality of our website and to improve user-friendliness. Cookie technology also enables us to recognise individual visitors using pseudonyms, e.g. an individual optional ID, allowing us to offer more individualised services.
  • Storage duration
    Our cookies are stored until they are deleted from your browser or, if it is a session cookie, until the session has expired.
  • Right to object and erasure
    You can configure your browser yourself to reject all cookies. You can then decide on a case by case basis whether or not to accept cookies or to accept cookies generally.

7. Data security and privacy, communication via e-mail

Technical and organisational measures are used when collecting, saving and processing your personal data so as to prevent it from becoming accessible to third parties. Where unencrypted communication takes place via e-mail, we cannot guarantee that data will be fully secure during transmission to our IT systems, therefore it is advisable to use encrypted communication or the post to send highly-confidential information.

8. Revocation of consent – data requests and change requests – erasing and blocking data

You have a right to free information about your stored personal data at reasonable intervals and the right to correct, block or delete your data at any time.

9. Right to data portability

You are entitled to receive any data relating to your person that you have transmitted to us in a standard, structured, and machine-readable format. You can also request that we transmit this data to a third party immediately at your first instruction insofar as the processing is based on consent in accordance with Article 6(1)(a) GDPR or Article 9 (2)(a) GDPR or under a contract within the meaning of Article 6(1)(b) GDPR and the data is processed by us as part of automated data processing.
When exercising this right to data portability you also have the right to have the personal data relating to you transmitted directly to another data controller provided this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other people may not be compromised by this.
The right to data portability does not apply to any processing of personal data which is required for the performance of a task that is carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

10. Right of appeal with a supervisory authority under Article 77(1) GDPR

If you suspect us of having unlawfully processed your data, you can of course seek a judicial clarification of the issue.
