Privacy Policy 11/2022

  1. Definitions

Our data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European legislator in the context of the data protection regulation (DSGVO). Our data protection declaration should be legible and understandable for the general public, but also for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would first like to explain some of the terms used.

Personal Data

Personal data is any information about a specific or identifiable natural person ("data subject"). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier, or by one or more specific characteristics of the physical, physiological, genetic, mental , economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

Affected Persons/r

Any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data has been processed by the person responsible for processing is affected.

Processing

Processing is any operation or set of operations carried out on personal data, whether automatically collected, recorded, organized, structured, stored, adapted or modified, accessed, consulted, used, transmitted, disseminated or otherwise accessible made, aligned or combined, restricted, deleted or destroyed.

Profiling

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

Pseudonymization

Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be assigned to a specific person without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not assigned to a specific or identifiable natural person.

Responsible Person (=Controller)

The person responsible for processing 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; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for their nomination may be determined by Union or Member State law.

Processor

Processor is a natural or legal person, authority, authority or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the person responsible or controller.

Recipient

Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to which the personal data is passed on, regardless of whether it is a third party or not. However, authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation under Union or Member State law are not considered recipients; the processing of this data by these authorities is carried out in accordance with the applicable data protection regulations, according to the purposes of the processing.

Third Parties

Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons authorized to process personal data under the direct supervision of the controller or processor.

Consent

The consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous statement of the wishes of the data subject, through which they declare their consent to the processing of their personal data by means of a statement or a clear affirmation.

  1. General information on the collection and processing of your data

Scope of Processing

In principle, we only process the personal data of our website visitors and users to the extent that this is necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users takes place regularly only with the consent of the user. An exception applies in such cases in which it is not possible to obtain prior consent for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by statutory provisions.

Legal Basis

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR serves as the legal basis. Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data required to fulfill a contract to which the data subject is a party. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR serves as the legal basis. In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis. If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the first interest, Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing .

Storage and Deletion of your data

We delete or block personal data of the person concerned as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Deletion can also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which our company is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract.

Notice

Your consent data will be processed for the use of this website and the use of the integrated consent management platform. We use OneDrive Personal Cloud Storage from Microsoft OneDrive. The server locations are within the European Union. Due to the judgment of the ECJ of July 16, 2020 (Case C311/18), the transfer of personal data to the USA was declared unlawful on the basis of the Privacy Shield. We would like to inform you that it cannot be ruled out that the data will be transmitted to the USA and accessed there by the security authorities in accordance with 50 U.S.C. §1881(b)(4), 50 U.S.C. § 1881a (= FISA 702) could be exposed.

 

  1. Provision of the website and Creation of log files

Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer. This is e.g. information such as information about the type and version of your internet browser, the operating system of your computer or smartphone, your internet service provider, your IP address, date and time of your access, websites from which you came to us arrived, Internet pages which you visit from our side. The legal basis for temporary storage is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. We record such technical information in so-called "log files" (log files) so that our website is displayed correctly and we can determine the causes of any technical problems, for the technical optimization of our website and for the purpose of security of our computer systems and networks. Our legitimate interest in data processing in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR also lies in these purposes. The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. Typically, this technical information is deleted or made unrecognizable after seven days at the latest. The collection of the data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

 

  1. Contact requests for product information or other matters

Description and Scope of data processing

You can contact us in various ways on our website (including the contact form) and request product information. If you take advantage of this option, the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us and saved. In addition to the specific input mask data, the IP address and the date and time of the request are collected and stored. You give your consent to the processing of the data by sending it. Alternatively, you can contact us by email. In this case, the user's personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be stored. In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties, unless this is necessary to process the query (e.g. demo booking tool). In any case, the data will only be used to process the conversation.

Legal basis for Processing

The legal basis for processing the data is Article 6(1)(a) GDPR if the user has given their consent. The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an email is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f GDPR. If the e-mail contact is aimed at concluding a contract, the additional legal basis for processing is Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR.

Purpose of Data Processing

The processing of the personal data from the input mask serves us solely to process your request. If contact is made by e-mail, this is also the necessary legitimate interest in the processing of the data. The other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

Duration of storage

If you have requested product information or an offer, we reserve the right to store the data for two years in order to measure the profitability of our sales and marketing. Otherwise, we will delete the data as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is over when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the facts in question have been finally clarified. The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.

Possibility of objection and elimination

The user(s) have the option to revoke their consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by email, he/she can object to the storage of his/her personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued.

In particular, our company has to observe the storage obligations of tax law (§257 dHGB, §132 öBAO) in this context.

Possibility of objection and elimination

As a user, you have the option to close your account at any time. You can have the data stored about you changed at any time. If the data is required to fulfill a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures, the data can only be deleted prematurely if there are no contractual or legal obligations to the contrary.

2. Terms of the data protection regulation

Our data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European legislator within the framework of the Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). Our data protection declaration should be readable and understandable for the public, but also for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would first like to explain some of the terms used.

  • Personal data

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ("data subject"). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or by one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

  • Affected person

The data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data have been processed by the controller.

  • Processing

Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such data is collected, recorded, organised, structured, stored, adapted or altered, retrieved, consulted, used, made available by transmission, dissemination or otherwise, aligned or combined, restricted, erased or destroyed.

  • Profiling

Profiling shall mean any form of automated processing of personal data which consists of the use of personal data to evaluate certain aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects of that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.

  • Pseudonymisation

Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific person without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separate and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data cannot be attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

  • Controller (responsible person)

The controller shall be 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; where Union or Member State law determines the purposes and means of such processing, Union or Member State law may specify the controller or the specific criteria for their designation.

  • Processor

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

  • Recipient

A recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom the personal data are disclosed, whether or not it is a third party. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a specific investigation under Union or Member State law shall not be considered as recipients and the processing of such data by those authorities shall be carried out in accordance with the applicable data protection rules, in line with the purposes of the processing.

  • Third

Third parties are natural or legal persons, public authorities, agencies or bodies other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorised to process personal data under the direct supervision of the controller or the processor.

  • Consent 

The data subject's consent is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes by which he or she signifies, by a statement or by an unequivocal affirmative action, his or her agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

3. Data collection when visiting our website

During the mere informational use of our website, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us, we only collect data that your browser transmits to the page server (so-called "server log files"). When you call up our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to display the website to you:

  • Our visited website
  • Date and time at the time of access
  • Amount of data sent in bytes
  • Source/reference from which you reached the page
  • Browser used
  • Operating system used
  • IP address used (if applicable: in anonymised form)

The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website. The data is not passed on or used in any other way. However, we reserve the right to check the server log files retrospectively if there are concrete indications of illegal use.

We delete or block personal data of the data subject as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. Deletion may also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which our company is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a necessity for the continued storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

4. Hosting & Content Delivery Network

4.1 Magento

For the hosting of our website and the display of the page content, we use the system of the following provider: Adobe Inc., as owner of Magento, 345 Park Avenue, San Jose, CA 95110-2704, USA ("Magento").

Data will also be transferred to: Adobe Systems Software Ireland Limited, 4-6 Riverwalk, Citywest Business Campus, Dublin 24, Ireland, as the European representative of Adobe Inc.

All data collected on our website is processed on the provider's servers. We have concluded an order processing contract with the provider, which ensures the protection of our site visitors' data and prohibits unauthorised disclosure to third parties.

When data is transferred within the European Union, such as to Ireland, an adequate level of data protection is guaranteed by the applicable data protection laws of the European Union.

For the transfer of data to the USA, the provider invokes standard contractual clauses of the European Commission, which are intended to ensure compliance with the European level of data protection.

4.2 Cloudflare

We use a content delivery network of the following provider: Cloudflare Inc., 101 Townsend St. San Francisco, CA 94107, USA

This service enables us to deliver large media files such as graphics, page content or scripts more quickly via a network of regionally distributed servers. The processing is carried out to protect our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. We have concluded an order processing agreement with the provider, which ensures the protection of our site visitors' data and prohibits unauthorised disclosure to third parties.

For data transfers to the USA, the provider has signed up to the EU-US Data Privacy Framework, which ensures compliance with the European level of data protection on the basis of an adequacy decision by the European Commission.

4.3 OneDrive Personal Cloud Storage

In the course of using this website and the integrated content management platform, we process certain personal data with your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO. This data includes, for example, contact information, IP addresses, etc. We use the OneDrive personal cloud storage service from Microsoft, whose servers are localised within the European Union.

We have entered into an order processing agreement with the provider, which is set out in the document "Microsoft Products and Services Data Protection Addendum". This ensures the protection of your data and prohibits unauthorised disclosure to third parties.

Despite the local server locations, we would like to point out that it cannot be ruled out that your data will be transferred to the USA. In particular, in light of the EU Court of Justice ruling of 16 July 2020 (Case C311/18) that declared data transfers based on the Privacy Shield unlawful, your data could be subject to access by U.S. security authorities under 50 U.S.C. §1881(b)(4), 50 U.S.C. § 1881a (= FISA 702). This could mean that your data can be accessed and used without your knowledge or consent and that you may not be able to fully exercise your rights as a data subject.

You can withdraw your consent at any time. To do so, send us an email to the email address above. Please note that the revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.

As a data subject, you have the right to information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing and data portability. You also have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time on grounds relating to your particular situation.

5. Cookies

5.1 What are Cookies & Co?

Web browser cookies
A web browser cookie is a small text file sent from a website to your computer or mobile device, where it is stored by your web browser. Web browser cookies can store information such as your IP address or other identifier, your browser type and information about the content you view and interact with on the Digital Services. By storing such information, web browser cookies can store your preferences and settings for online services and analyse how you use online services.

Tracking technologies: Web Beacons/Gifs, Pixel, Page Tags, Script

Emails and mobile apps may contain small, transparent image files or lines of code to record how you interact with them. This information is used to help website and app publishers better analyse and improve their services.

5.2 Use, legal basis and purpose

We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some elements of our website require that the calling browser can be identified even after a page change. Before consent is given, 2 functional cookies are set. The "PHPSESSID" cookie is used to recognise the browser language and thus display the language of the website appropriately. After closing the browser, this cookie is deleted again. The "wBounce" cookie only contains the value "true". This value is used to recognise whether or not the user has already seen a pop-up. If he/she has already interacted with it, we do not want to show it to him/her again for a certain period of time. In addition, we set the two IAB cookies "euconsent" and "eupubconsent". These cookies store when a user does not want to be tracked. The same applies to the storage of data in the local storage. This only serves to remind us if a user has not given their consent. Otherwise, we would have to ask for this every time the page is called up. The aforementioned cookies and the storage of data in the local storage thus only enable functionalities that are intended to contribute to a positive user experience on our website. We do not set cookies with personal data without consent. 

We also use cookies on our website that enable an analysis of the user's surfing behaviour. When calling up our website, the user is informed about the use of cookies for analysis purposes and his or her consent to the processing of personal data used in this context is obtained. In this context, a reference to this data protection declaration is also made. The legal basis for the processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for analysis purposes is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO if the user has given his or her consent in this regard. The purpose of using technically necessary cookies is to simplify the use of websites for users. Some functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. For these, it is necessary that the browser is recognised even after a page change. We require cookies for the following applications: Acceptance of language settings. The user/inside data collected through technically necessary cookies are not used to create user profiles. Analysis cookies are used to improve the quality of our website and its content. Through the analysis cookies, we learn how the website is used and can thus continuously optimise our offer.

5.3 Duration

Cookies are stored on the user's computer and transmitted from it to our site. Therefore, you as a user also have full control over the use of cookies. By changing the settings in your internet browser, you can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies. Cookies that have already been saved can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may no longer be possible to use all the functions of the website to their full extent.

6. Contact

6.1 When contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail), personal data is processed - exclusively for the purpose of processing and answering your request and only to the extent necessary for this purpose.
The legal basis for processing this data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. If your contact is aimed at a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO. Your data will be deleted when the circumstances indicate that the matter concerned has been conclusively clarified and provided that there are no statutory retention obligations to the contrary.

The processing of the personal data from the input mask serves us solely to process your enquiry. In the case of contacting us by e-mail, this also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in processing the data. The other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

If you have requested product information or a quotation, we reserve the right to store the data for two years in order to measure the efficiency of our sales and marketing. Otherwise, we delete the data as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is ended when the circumstances indicate that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified. The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.

The user(s) have the option to revoke their consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by e-mail, he/she can object to the storage of his/her personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued. All personal data stored in the course of contacting us will be deleted in this case.

6.2 Trusted Shops

For rating reminders we use the services of the following provider: Trusted Shops AG, Subbelrather Str. 15c, 50823 Cologne, Germany

Exclusively on the basis of your express consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO, we transmit your e-mail address and, if applicable, other customer data to the provider so that the provider can contact you by e-mail with an evaluation reminder.

You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future vis-à-vis us or the provider.

A special contract for order processing is not required, as Trusted Shops is based in Germany. Nevertheless, we have made agreements with Trusted Shops to ensure the data protection of our visitors and to prevent the unauthorised disclosure of data to third parties.

7. Data processing when opening a customer account

In accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, personal data will continue to be collected and processed to the extent necessary in each case if you provide us with this data when opening a customer account. The data required for opening an account can be found in the input mask of the corresponding form on our website.

Registration is necessary for the fulfilment of the customer or partner contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

Deletion of your customer account is possible at any time and can be done by sending a message to the above address of the person responsible. After deletion of your customer account, your data will be deleted, provided that all contracts concluded via it have been fully processed, no legal retention periods are opposed and no legitimate interest on our part in the continued storage exists.

8. Use of customer data for direct marketing

8.1 Subscribe to our e-mail newsletter

If you subscribe to our e-mail newsletter, we will send you information about our offers on a regular basis. The only mandatory data for sending the newsletter is your e-mail address. The provision of further data is voluntary and is used to address you personally. For sending the newsletter, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure, which ensures that you will only receive newsletters if you have expressly confirmed your consent to receive the newsletter by clicking on a verification link sent to the specified e-mail address.

By activating the confirmation link, you give us your consent for the use of your personal data in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

12. Retargeting/ Remarketing and Conversion Tracking

12.1 Google Ads Remarketing

This website uses retargeting technology from the following provider: Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

For this purpose, Google sets a cookie in the browser of your terminal device, which automatically enables interest-based advertising by means of a pseudonymous cookie ID and on the basis of the pages you have visited. Further data processing will only take place if you have consented to Google linking your internet and app browsing history to your Google Account and using information from your Google Account to personalise the ads you see on the web. In this case, if you are logged into Google while visiting our website, Google will use your data together with Google Analytics data to create and define target group lists for cross-device remarketing. For this purpose, your personal data will be temporarily linked by Google with Google Analytics data in order to form target groups. The use of Google Ads Remarketing may also involve the transmission of personal data to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.

All of the processing described above, in particular the setting of cookies for the reading of information on the end device used, will only be carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. Without this consent, retargeting technology will not be used during your visit to the website.

12.2 Google Ads Conversion Tracking

This website uses the online advertising programme "Google Ads" and, within the framework of Google Ads, the conversion tracking of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google"). We use Google Ads to draw attention to our attractive offers on external websites with the help of advertising media (so-called Google Adwords). We can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns. In this way, we pursue the aim of displaying advertising that is of interest to you, making our website more interesting for you and achieving a fair calculation of the advertising costs incurred.

The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your terminal device. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognise that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be tracked across Google Ads clients' websites. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Google Ads customers who have opted in to conversion tracking. Clients learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users. The use of Google Ads may also result in the transmission of personal data to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.

Details on the processing triggered by Google Ads Conversion Tracking and on Google's handling of data from websites can be found here: https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites

All processing described above, in particular the setting of cookies for reading out information on the end device used, is only carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO.

12.3 Facebook Pixel for the creation of Custom Audiences

Within our online offer, we use the "Facebook Pixel" service of the following provider: Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Quare, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook").

When a user clicks on an advertisement placed by us on Facebook, a parameter is added to the URL of our linked page with the help of "Facebook Pixel". This URL parameter is then entered into the user's browser after the redirection by a cookie that our linked page sets itself.

On the one hand, this enables Facebook to determine the visitors to our online offer as the target group for the display of advertisements (so-called "Facebook ads"). Accordingly, we use the service to display the Facebook ads placed by us only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited), which we transmit to Facebook (so-called "Custom Audiences").

On the other hand, "Facebook Pixel" can be used to track whether users have been redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad and which execution actions they take there (so-called "conversion tracking").

The data collected is anonymous for us, so it does not allow us to draw any conclusions about the identity of the user. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes.

All processing described above, in particular the setting of cookies for reading out information on the end device used, is only carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deactivating this service in the "Cookie Consent Tool" provided on the website.

We have concluded an order processing contract with the provider, which ensures the protection of our site visitors' data and prohibits unauthorised disclosure to third parties.

The information generated by Facebook is usually transmitted to a Facebook server and stored there; in this context, it may also be transmitted to servers of Meta Platforms Inc. in the USA.

For data transfers to the USA, the provider has signed up to the EU-US Data Privacy Framework, which ensures compliance with the European level of data protection on the basis of an adequacy decision by the European Commission.

13. Page functionalities

13.1 Youtube

To improve our online presence, components from YouTube ("YouTube plugin") are integrated on our website. YouTube is an internet video portal where video clips can be viewed, rated, commented on and uploaded free of charge. The processing of personal data when using YouTube is carried out by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, as the responsible party. Further information on YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/.

When you visit a website that contains a YouTube video, the corresponding video is loaded from YouTube. By visiting our website, YouTube receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the above-mentioned basic data such as IP address and time stamp are transmitted. We have no influence on this data transmission. The legal basis for the display of the videos is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO, i.e. the integration only takes place after your consent.

This takes place regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account via which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not want your data to be associated with your YouTube profile, you must log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or designing its website in line with requirements. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.

The information collected is stored on Google servers, including in the USA. According to its own information, the provider has committed to the former EU-US Privacy Shield and has promised to comply with applicable data protection laws when transferring data internationally. Insofar as data is processed outside the EU/EEA and there is no level of data protection corresponding to the European standard, we have concluded EU standard contractual clauses with the service provider to establish an appropriate level of data protection. The parent company of Google Ireland, Google LLC, is based in California, USA. A transfer of data to the USA and access by US authorities to the data stored by Google cannot be ruled out.

The USA is currently considered a third country from a data protection perspective. You do not have the same rights there as within the EU/EEA. You may not have any legal remedies against access by authorities.

Further information on the use of user data can be found in YouTube's privacy settings at https://www.youtube.com/intl/ALL_at/howyoutubeworks/user-settings/privacy/, in the "Privacy basics in YouTube apps" in the YouTube help at https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/10364219?hl=de and in Google's privacy policy at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de&gl=de.

If the playback of embedded videos is started via the plugin, the provider also uses cookies to collect information about user behaviour, create playback statistics and prevent abusive behaviour.

If you are logged into a user account with the provider during your visit to the site, your data will be directly assigned to your account when you click on a video. If you do not want this to be assigned to your account, you must log out before clicking the play button.

All of the aforementioned processing, in particular the setting of cookies for reading out information on the end device used, only takes place if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deactivating this service via the "Cookie Consent Tool" provided on the website.

No information other than that mentioned above, which is already transmitted to Google via the functionality of ReCaptcha, is processed in this case.

The service checks whether an input is made by a natural person or abusively by machine and automated processing, and blocks spam, DDoS attacks and similar automated malicious access. To ensure that an action is performed by a human being and not by an automated bot, Cloudflare Turnstile collects the IP address of the end device used, recognition data of the browser and operating system type used, as well as the date and duration of the visit, and transmits these to servers of the provider for evaluation.

14. Tools and miscellaneous

Cookie consent tool

This website uses a so-called "cookie consent tool" to obtain effective user consent for cookies and cookie-based applications that require consent. The "cookie consent tool" is displayed to users in the form of an interactive user interface when they access the page, on which consent for certain cookies and/or cookie-based applications can be given by ticking the appropriate box. Through the use of the tool, all cookies/services requiring consent are only loaded if the respective user gives the corresponding consent by ticking the corresponding box. This ensures that such cookies are only set on the respective end device of the user if consent has been granted.

The tool sets technically necessary cookies to save your cookie preferences. Personal user data is not processed in this process.

If, in individual cases, personal data (such as the IP address) is processed for the purpose of storing, assigning or logging cookie settings, this is done in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in legally compliant, user-specific and user-friendly consent management for cookies and thus in a legally compliant design of our website.

Further legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO. As the responsible party, we are subject to the legal obligation to make the use of technically unnecessary cookies dependent on the respective user consent.

To the extent necessary, we have concluded an order processing agreement with the provider, which ensures the protection of our site visitors' data and prohibits unauthorised disclosure to third parties.
