Cookies / SessionStorage / LocalStorage

Some of the websites use so-called cookies, LocalStorage and SessionStorage. This serves to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Local Storage and SessionStorage is a technology that your browser uses to save data on your computer or mobile device. Cookies are text files that are stored and stored on a computer system via an internet browser. You can prevent the use of cookies, LocalStorage and SessionStorage by setting your browser accordingly. Numerous websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier for the cookie. It consists of a string of characters through which websites and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the websites and servers visited to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific internet browser can be recognized and identified via the unique cookie ID. Through the use of cookies, users of this website can provide more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting. Using a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized in the interests of the user. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re-enter their access data every time they visit the website, because this is done by the website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in the online shop. The online shop uses a cookie to remember the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart. The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.

Collection of general data and information

Die Internetseite erfasst mit jedem Aufruf der Internetseite durch eine betroffene Person oder ein automatisiertes System eine Reihe von allgemeinen Daten und Informationen. Diese allgemeinen Daten und Informationen werden in den Logfiles des Servers gespeichert. Erfasst werden können die (1) verwendeten Browsertypen und Versionen, (2) das vom zugreifenden System verwendete Betriebssystem, (3) die Internetseite, von welcher ein zugreifendes System auf unsere Internetseite gelangt (sogenannte Referrer), (4) die Unterwebseiten, welche über ein zugreifendes System auf unserer Internetseite angesteuert werden, (5) das Datum und die Uhrzeit eines Zugriffs auf die Internetseite, (6) eine Internet-Protokoll-Adresse (IP-Adresse), (7) der Internet-Service-Provider des zugreifenden Systems und (8) sonstige ähnliche Daten und Informationen, die der Gefahrenabwehr im Falle von Angriffen auf unsere informationstechnologischen Systeme dienen.

Bei der Nutzung dieser allgemeinen Daten und Informationen ziehen wird keine Rückschlüsse auf die betroffene Person. Diese Informationen werden vielmehr benötigt, um (1) die Inhalte unserer Internetseite korrekt auszuliefern, (2) die Inhalte unserer Internetseite sowie die Werbung für diese zu optimieren, (3) die dauerhafte Funktionsfähigkeit unserer informationstechnologischen Systeme und der Technik unserer Internetseite zu gewährleisten sowie (4) um Strafverfolgungsbehörden im Falle eines Cyberangriffes die zur Strafverfolgung notwendigen Informationen bereitzustellen. Diese anonym erhobenen Daten und Informationen werden durch uns daher einerseits statistisch und ferner mit dem Ziel ausgewertet, den Datenschutz und die Datensicherheit in unserem Unternehmen zu erhöhen, um letztlich ein optimales Schutzniveau für die von uns verarbeiteten personenbezogenen Daten sicherzustellen. Die anonymen Daten der Server-Logfiles werden getrennt von allen durch eine betroffene Person angegebenen personenbezogenen Daten gespeichert.

Registration on our website

The data subject has the option of registering on the website of the controller by providing personal data. Which personal data is transmitted to the person responsible for the processing results from the respective input mask that is used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the person responsible for processing and for their own purposes. The person responsible for processing can arrange for the data to be passed on to one or more processors, for example a parcel service provider, who also uses the personal data exclusively for internal use attributable to the person responsible for processing. By registering on the website of the person responsible for processing, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) to the person concerned, the date and time of registration are also saved. This data is stored against the background that this is the only way to prevent misuse of our services and, if necessary, to enable criminal offenses to be investigated. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary to protect the person responsible for processing. This data is generally not passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to pass it on or it is used for criminal prosecution. The registration of the data subject with the voluntary provision of personal data enables the data controller to offer the data subject content or services which, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to change the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have them completely deleted from the database of the person responsible for processing. The person responsible for processing will provide information to each person concerned at any time upon request about which personal data is stored about the person concerned. Furthermore, the person responsible for processing corrects or deletes personal data at the request or advice of the person concerned, provided that there are no statutory retention requirements. The entirety of the employees of the person responsible for the processing are available to the data subject as contact persons in this context.

Contact option via the website

Due to legal regulations, the website contains information that enables quick electronic contact to our company and direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for so-called electronic mail (e-mail address).

Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the person responsible for processing are stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data is not passed on to third parties.

Comment function in the blog on the website

We offer users the option of leaving individual comments on individual blog posts on a blog that is on the website of the controller.

The blog posts can usually be commented on by third parties. If a person concerned leaves a comment on the blog published on this website, in addition to the comments left by the person concerned, information about the time the comment was entered and the username (pseudonym) chosen by the person concerned are stored and published. In addition, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the person concerned is also logged. The IP address is stored for security reasons and in the event that the person concerned violates the rights of third parties by submitting a comment or posts illegal content. The storage of this personal data is therefore in the own interest of the person responsible for the processing, so that he can exculpate himself in the event of a violation of the law. This collected personal data will not be passed on to third parties unless such a transfer is required by law or serves the legal defense of the person responsible for the processing.

Legal basis for processing

Art. 6 Ilit. a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art 6 Ilit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are required to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, for example to fulfill tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 Ilit. c GDPR. In rare cases, it may be necessary to process personal data in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were injured and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 Ilit. d GDPR are based.

Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 Ilit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the person concerned do not prevail. We are particularly permitted to carry out such processing operations because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the person concerned is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).

Legitimate interests in the processing that are being pursued by the controller or a third party

The processing of personal data is based on Article 6 Ilit. f DS-GVO is our legitimate interest in conducting our business activities for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.
 

Duration for which the personal data are stored

 

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the period has expired, the relevant data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required to fulfill or initiate a contract.
   

Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision

We explain to you that the provision of personal data is in part required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). In order to conclude a contract, it may sometimes be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that we subsequently have to process. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data when our company concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract could not be concluded with the person concerned. Before the person concerned provides personal data, the person concerned must contact one of our employees. Our employee explains to the person concerned on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what consequences the failure to provide the personal data would have.

Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
