§ 4 Additional functions and services of our website

(1) In addition to offering information on our website, we may offer other services that you can use if you are interested. This will usually require you to enter further personal data which we use to provide the relevant service and to which the above data processing principles apply.

(2) In some cases, we use third-party service providers to process your data. They have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are bound by our instructions, and are regularly inspected.

(3) If our service providers or partners are based in a country outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA), we will notify you of the consequences of this in the description of the service.

 

§ 5 Objection or revocation of consent for the processing of your data

(1) If you have given your consent to the processing of your data, you can revoke it at any time. Once you have notified us of your revocation, it will affect the permissibility of the processing of your personal data.

(2) Insofar as we base the processing of your personal data on the balance of interests, you may object to the processing. This is the case if the processing is not necessary, in particular, for the performance of a contract with you. We indicate this in the description of the functions in each case. When you exercise an objection, we will ask you on what grounds you would like us to stop processing your personal data. If your objection is justified, we will examine the merits of the case and either stop or amend the data processing or inform you of compelling legitimate grounds on the basis of which we will continue the processing.

(3) To object or to revoke your consent, please send an email to the address given in § 1(2) above.

§ 6 Web tracking using Google Analytics

(1) This website uses Google Analytics, a web tracking service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). We use this tool in order to analyse your user interactions on websites and in apps, to improve our offer through the statistics and reports obtained, and to make our offer more relevant for you as a user.

(2) We track the interactions between you and our website primarily by means of cookies, device/browser data, IP addresses, and website or app activity. Google Analytics also tracks your IP addresses in order to ensure the security of the service and to provide us, as the website operator, with information on the country, region or location from which the user originates (IP location determination). For your protection, we use the IP masking function, i.e. Google truncates the IP addresses by the last octet within the EU/EEA.

(3) Google acts as a processor and we have concluded a contract with Google for this purpose. The information generated by the cookies about your use of this website, and the IP addresses (generally truncated), are generally transferred to a Google server in the US and stored there. For these cases, Google states it has imposed a standard on itself equivalent to the former EU-US Privacy Shield and has pledged to comply with applicable data protection laws when transferring data internationally. We have also agreed standard contractual clauses with Google pursuant to Art. 45 (2) GDPR, the purpose of which is to ensure compliance with an adequate level of data protection in the third country.

(4) The legal basis for the collection and further processing of your personal data (which takes place for a maximum of 14 months) is that you have given your consent (Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 point a GDPR). You may revoke your consent at any time. Until the revocation, the permissibility of the processing is not affected. In Android or iOS apps, you can reset the advertising ID in the settings. The easiest way to revoke your consent is to use our Consent Manager or to install Google’s browser add-on, which is available here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB.

(5) Further information on the scope of services provided by Google Analytics is available at https://marketingplatform.google.com/about/analytics/terms/us/. For information on data processing when you use Google Analytics, see: support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en&sjid=5278958814842481378-EU. General information on data processing, which according to Google also applies to Google Analytics, can be found in Google’s privacy policy at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

 

§ 7 Profiling

 

We do not use automated decision-making, including profiling, in accordance with Art. 22(1) and (4) GDPR.

§ 8 Voluntary provision of personal data

The provision of the above-mentioned personal data is always voluntary. However, for technical reasons you cannot use our website without an IP address.

(1) We reserve the right to amend this data protection notice with future effect when we amend our website or if required to do so due to technical or statutory changes.

(2) This is the current version of the data protection notice as of October 2023.
