A web analyze is basically used for optimizing a website, and for the cost benefit analysis of internet advertising.

The person concerned may prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as described above, at any time by means of respectively adjusting the used web browser, and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such adjustment of the used web browser would also prevent, that Google sets a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. Moreover, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted, anytime, via the web browser or other software programs.
The person concerned also has the option to object to the collection of data caused by Google Analytics, referred to the use of this website as well as to object to the processing of these data by Google, and to prevent such processing.

In case that the information technology system of the person concerned is deleted, formatted or re-installed at a later date, the person concerned has to re-install the browser-add on, in order to deactivate Google Analytics. Provided that the browser-add-on is de-installed or de-activated by the person concerned or another person belonging to his/her sphere of control, the browser-add-on can be reinstalled or reactivated.

In case that the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a contract, of which the person concerned is a contract party, as this is the case, for example, with the processing operations, required for delivery of goods or provision of other services or return services, the processing is based on art. 6 I letter b DS-GVO (GDPR). The same applies for such processing operations required for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, such as in cases of inquiries on our products or services. In case that our company is subject to a legal obligation that requires processing of personal data, such as to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on art. 6 I letter c DS-GVO (GDPR). In rare cases the processing of personal data could be necessary to protect vital interests of the person concerned or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company, and thereupon, we would have to transmit the visitor’s name, age, health insurance data or other vital information to a doctor, a hospital or other Third Parties. In this case the processing would be based on art. 6 I letter d DS-GVO (GDPR). Ultimately, these processing operations could be based on art. 6 I letter f DS-GVO (GDPR). This legal foundation is the basis of processing operations, which are not covered by one of the aforementioned legal foundations, if the processing is required to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a Third Party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedom of the person concerned prevail. Such processing operations are particularly allowed because they were especially mentioned by the European law giver. They took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed, in case that the person concerned is a customer of the party responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO ).

16. Legitimate interests in the processing, which are pursued by the party responsible or a Third Party.

If the processing of personal data is based on article 6 I letter f DS-GVO (GDPR) it is our legitimate interest to carry out our business in the favor of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

17. Period, for which the personal data are stored

The criterion for the period of storing personal data is the respective legal retention period. After expiration of this period the respective data are routinely deleted, unless they are required to fulfil the contract or for contract initiation.

18. Legal or contractual regulations for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the person concerned to provide personal data; possible consequences of non-provision

We clarify, that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (for ex. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (for ex. information about the contracting party). Occasionally, it might be required for the conclusion of a contract, that a person concerned provides personal data, which have to be processed by our company subsequently. The person concerned, for example, is obliged to provide us with personal data in case of concluding a contract with our company. If the personal data are not provided a contract with the person concerned could not be concluded. Before providing personal data the person concerned has to contact one of our employees. Our employee will clarify, on individual cases, with the person concerned, whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract, or is necessary for the conclusion of contract, whether there is an obligation to provide personal data, and what are the consequences of non-provisioning personal data.

19. Existing of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.

However, the recorded data are only used for statistical evaluation for the purpose of operation, safety, and optimization of the contents.

Deviations can result due to possible registration and login to our password-protected area. Here, page calls and downloads are assigned to the userʻs account, as these data represent a justified interest for proof of special requests for content (e.g. when registering for an event or similar).

In case of unusual page calls (e.g. non-existent pages or parameters), additional logfile information (incl. non-anonymized IP address) is saved for safety reasons (e.g. to investigate malicious attacks, misuse, or fraudulent activities) for the maximum duration of one month, after which the data are deleted. Data that must be stored as evidence for a longer period, i.e. until final clarification of the incident, are excluded from deletion after one month.
