8. Data protection regulations on the use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

The person responsible for processing has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection and evaluation of data on the behavior of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service gathers data about the website from which a person came to a website (the so-called referrer). Google Analytics tracks which sub-pages the user visits or how often, and for how long a sub-page gets viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The data controller uses the addition "_gat.anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. The IP address of the Internet connection of the affected person is shortened and made anonymous by Google. It applies when our internet pages are accessed from member states of the European Union or from other countries that are a part of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website to compile online reports for us. These show the activities on our website and provide further services in connection with our website.

Among other things, Google Analytics places cookies on the information technology system of the affected person. The cookies used have been named and explained above. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, the internet browser transmits data to Google for online analysis.

In the course of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as IP addresses. Google uses this to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission settlements. Due to the use of cookies, personal information gets processed. These include access time, location originated, and the frequency of visits to our website. Above all, the IP address gets transmitted and stored by Google in the United States of America.

Google may pass on this personal data to third parties. The transmission gets prevented by changing the cookies settings on our internet browser as explained above. It also implies that Google receives information on the information technology system from the affected person. The user can delete cookies set by Google Analytics via the internet browser or other software programs at any time. Furthermore, the affected person has the right to object to the data collection and processing by Google Analytics.

Therefore, the affected person must download and install a browser add-on under the link tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on prevents the processing of data and any other information concerning website visits. Reinstallation of the browser add-on is necessary when the information technology system gets deleted, uninstalled, or formatted. Only this deactivates Google Analytics from processing one's data.

9. Legal basis of the processing

§ 6 Ia of DS-GVO serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the conclusion of a contract the processing relies on § 6 Ib DS-GVO. It is the case when the affected person is part of the contract. Furthermore, it is necessary for the supply of goods or another service. It also applies to the implementation of pre-contractual measures, including inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation that makes it necessary to process personal data, for example, to fulfill tax obligations, the processing relies on § 6 Ic DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the affected person.

In extraordinary cases, a visitor's name, age, health insurance details, or other vital information gets disclosed to a doctor, hospital, or another third party. It only applies when he injures himself during his visit to our company. The processing relies on § 6 Id DS-GVO. If the processing operations are not covered by the legal bases named above, they get to be considered safeguards to the interest of our company or of a third party. Fundamental rights and freedoms of the affected person do not prevail. The European legislators exclusively allow the processing operations. The European legislators obtain the view that legitimate interest is assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible (Recital 47 Sentence 2 DS-GVO).

10. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party

The processing of personal data relies on § 6 If of DS-GVO. Our legitimate interest is to execute our business activities in close relation to the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

11. Timeframe for stored personal data

The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After this, the data will gets deleted unless there are requirements for the fulfillment or initiation of a contract.

12. Legal or contractual provisions which require to make the personal data available; the necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the affected person to provide the personal data; possible consequences of not providing it

We inform you that providing personal data is partly required by law (tax regulations). It can also result from contractual liabilities (information on the contractual partner). It is necessary for the conclusion of the contract that the contract partner provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. If the affected person does not provide personal data, we cannot conclude a contract. Nevertheless, the affected person must consult one of our employees before the personal data gets transferred. Our employee will inform the affected person on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required for the reasons named above (law, the conclusion of a contract, consequences of not providing personal data, etc.).

13. The existence of automated decision-making

As a conscientious company, we avoid automatic decision making or profiling.

14. Integration of Google Maps

(1) On this website we use Google Maps. It allows us to display interactive maps directly on the website. Additionally, it enables you to use the map function conveniently.

(2) Google receives the information you have called up due to visiting the corresponding subpage of our website. Also, the data mentioned under § 3 of this declaration is transmitted. It occurs regardless of whether one uses his/her Google account, or no user account exists. If you use your Google account, your data gets assigned to this account. If you do not wish to get your information transmitted, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as user profiles and uses them for advertising, market research, and/or the needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation gets executed to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. It also applies to users who do not use their Google account. If you want to object to this policy, you would have to contact Google itself.

(3) For further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the provider's privacy policy. You will also find further information on your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy: www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy. Google also processes your data in the USA and has submitted it to the EU-US Privacy Shield, www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
