Data protection declaration

Thank you for your interest in our company. Data protection is of particular importance for the management of MeRaum GmbH. A use of the internet pages of MeRaum GmbH is basically possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to make use of special services of our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the basic data protection regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to MeRaum GmbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, data subjects will be informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration.

MeRaum GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures as the person responsible for the processing in order to ensure the most complete possible protection of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

  1. Definitions

    The data protection declaration of MeRaum GmbH is based on the terms used by the European guideline and regulation provider in the adoption of the basic data protection regulation (DS-GVO). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand both for the public and for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.

    We use the following terms, among others, in this data protection declaration:

    a) personal data

    Personal data are all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "data subject"). Identifiable is a natural person who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by assignment to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more special characteristics that express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

    b) person concerned

    Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.

    c) Processing

    Processing means any operation or series of operations carried out with or without the aid of automated procedures in relation to personal data, such as the collection, collection, organisation, sorting, storage, adaptation or alteration, reading, retrieval, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or any other form of provision, comparison or linking, restriction, erasure or destruction.

    d) Restriction of processing

    Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of restricting their future processing.

    e) Profiling

    Profiling is any form of automated processing of personal data consisting in the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to the performance of work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or relocation of that natural person.

    f) Pseudonymization

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

    g) controller or controller

    The data controller or controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, institution or other body which alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are laid down by Union law or by the law of the Member States, the controller or the specific criteria for his appointment may be laid down in accordance with Union law or the law of the Member States.

    h) contract processors

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

    i) Recipient

    Recipient is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body to which personal data is disclosed, regardless of whether it is a third party or not. However, authorities which may receive personal data under Union law or the law of the Member States within the framework of a particular investigation mandate shall not be regarded as recipients.

    j) third parties

    A third party is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body other than the data subject, the data processor, the data processor and the persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the data processor or the data processor.

    k) Consent

    Consent shall mean any informed and unequivocal expression of will voluntarily given by the data subject in the particular case in the form of a declaration or other clear affirmative act by which the data subject indicates his or her consent to the processing of personal data concerning him or her.

  2. name and address of the controller

  4. Cookies

    The Internet pages of MeRaum GmbH use cookies. Cookies are text files which are stored on a computer system via an Internet browser.

    Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular Internet browser can be recognized and identified by its unique cookie ID.

    By using cookies, MeRaum GmbH can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without cookies.
    By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized for the user. Cookies enable us, as already mentioned, 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 his access data each time he visits the website because this is taken over by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping basket in the online shop. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping basket via a cookie.

    The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of 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 Internet site may be fully usable.

  5. collection of general data and information

    The website of MeRaum GmbH collects a series of general data and information every time a person or an automated system accesses the website. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. We may record (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrer), (4) the subwebsites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of access to the Website, (6) an Internet Protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service providers of the accessing system, and (8) other similar data and information used for security purposes in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

    When using this general data and information MeRaum GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required to (1) correctly deliver the contents of our website, (2) optimize the contents of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. These anonymously collected data and information are therefore evaluated by MeRaum GmbH statistically and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned.

  6. contact via the website

    Due to legal regulations, the website of MeRaum GmbH contains information that enables quick electronic contact with our company and direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the data controller via e-mail or a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be stored automatically. Such personal data voluntarily provided by a data subject to the controller will be stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data is not passed on to third parties.

  7. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

    The controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the time necessary to achieve the data retention purpose or to the extent provided for by the European regulator or other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.
    If the storage purpose ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Giver or another competent legislator expires, the personal data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

  8. rights of the data subject

    a) Right to confirmation

    Every data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations to require the controller to confirm whether personal data concerning him/her are being processed. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of confirmation, he or she may contact our data protection officer or another employee of the data controller at any time.

    b) Right to information

    Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations to obtain, at any time and free of charge, information from the controller concerning the personal data relating to him/her stored and a copy of that information. Furthermore, the European regulator has granted the data subject the following information:

    • the processing purposes
    • the categories of personal data to be processed
    • the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or are still being disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries or international organisations
    • if possible, the planned duration for which the personal data will be stored or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining this duration
    • the existence of a right of rectification or deletion of personal data concerning him or of a restriction on processing by the controller or of a right of opposition to such processing
    • the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority
      if the personal data is not collected from the data subject: All available information about the origin of the data
    • the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling in accordance with Article 22(1) and (4) DS-GVO and, at least in these cases, meaningful information on the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject
     

    Furthermore, the data subject has a right of access to information as to whether personal data have been transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. If this is the case, the data subject also has the right to obtain information on the appropriate guarantees in connection with the transfer.

    If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to information, he or she may contact our data protection officer or another employee of the data controller at any time.

    c) Right to correction

    Any person data subject to the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations to request the immediate correction of inaccurate personal data concerning him/her. Furthermore, taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject has the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary declaration.

    If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of rectification, he may contact our data protection officer or another employee of the controller at any time.

    d) Right to cancellation (right to be forgotten)

    Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations to require the data controller to request that the personal data concerning him/her be deleted immediately, provided that one of the following reasons applies and insofar as the processing is not necessary:

    • The personal data have been collected or otherwise processed for such purposes for which they are no longer necessary.
    • The data subject withdraws his/her consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) DS-GVO or Article 9(2)(a) DS-GVO, and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
    • The data subject opposes processing under Article 21(1) DS-GVO and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for processing or the data subject opposes processing under Article 21(2) DS-GVO.
    • The personal data have been processed unlawfully.
    • The deletion of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the data controller is subject.
    • The personal data was collected in relation to information society services offered in accordance with Art. 8 para. 1 DS-GVO.
     

    If one of the above-mentioned reasons applies and a data subject wishes to have personal data stored at MeRaum GmbH deleted, he or she can contact our data protection officer or another employee of the data controller at any time. The data protection officer of MeRaum GmbH or another employee will arrange for the request for deletion to be complied with immediately.

    If the personal data have been made public by MeRaum GmbH and our company is obliged to delete the personal data in accordance with Art. 17 para. 1 DS-GVO, MeRaum GmbH takes appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform other persons responsible for data processing who process the published personal data, that the person concerned has requested the deletion of all links to this personal data or of copies or replications of this personal data from these other persons responsible for data processing, insofar as processing is not necessary. The data protection officer of MeRaum GmbH or another employee will take the necessary steps in individual cases.

    e) Right to limitation of processing

    Any person data subject to the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations to require the controller to restrict the processing if one of the following conditions is met:

    • The accuracy of the personal data is disputed by the data subject for a period that enables the data controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
    • The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses to delete the personal data and instead requests that the use of the personal data be restricted.
    • The data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data subject needs them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
    • The data subject has lodged an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 DS-GVO and it has not yet been determined whether the legitimate reasons of the data subject outweigh those of the data subject.
     

    If one of the above conditions is fulfilled and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by MeRaum GmbH, he or she can contact our data protection officer or another employee of the data controller at any time. The data protection officer of MeRaum GmbH or another employee will arrange for the processing to be restricted.

    f) Right to data transferability

    Any data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to receive personal data relating to him/her provided by the data subject to a data controller in a structured, current and machine-readable format. It shall also have the right to transmit such data to another data controller without obstruction by the controller to whom the personal data have been made available, provided that the processing is based on the consent provided for in Article 6(1)(a) DS GMO or Article 9(2)(a) DS GMO or on a contract in accordance with Article 6(1)(b) DS GMO and that the processing is carried out using automated procedures, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of public authority conferred on the data controller.

    Furthermore, in exercising his right to data transferability pursuant to Article 20(1) DS-GVO, the data subject has the right to obtain that the personal data be transferred directly by a data controller to another data controller, provided this is technically feasible and provided that the rights and freedoms of other persons are not affected thereby.

    To assert the right to data transferability, the person concerned can contact the data protection officer appointed by MeRaum GmbH or another employee at any time.

    g) Right of objection

    Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European legislator for reasons arising from their particular situation to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning them under Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DS-GVO. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

    MeRaum GmbH no longer processes personal data in the event of an objection, unless we can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing, which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

    If MeRaum GmbH processes personal data in order to carry out direct advertising, the person concerned has the right to object to the processing of the personal data at any time for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to MeRaum GmbH processing for direct advertising purposes, MeRaum GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

    Furthermore, the data subject has the right to object to the processing of personal data concerning him/her which is carried out at MeRaum GmbH for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 para. 1 DS-GVO, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, unless such processing is necessary to fulfil a task in the public interest.

    To exercise the right of objection, the person concerned can directly contact the data protection officer of MeRaum GmbH or another employee. The data subject shall also be free to exercise his right of opposition in relation to the use of information society services by means of automated procedures using technical specifications, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.

    h) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling

    Any person data subject to the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing, including profiling, which has legal effect against him or significantly affects him in a similar manner, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or (2) is admissible under Union or Member State law to which the data controller is subject and that such law contains appropriate measures to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) with the express consent of the data subject.

    If the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract between the data subject and the data controller or (2) if it is taken with the express consent of the data subject, MeRaum GmbH takes appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a data controller, to state his own position and to challenge the decision.

    If the data subject wishes to assert rights relating to automated decisions, he/she may contact our data protection officer or another employee of the controller at any time.

    i) Right to revoke consent under data protection law

    Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations to revoke consent to the processing of personal data at any time.

    If the data subject wishes to exercise his/her right to withdraw his/her consent, he/she may contact our data protection officer or another employee of the controller at any time.

  9. Data protection for applications and in the application procedure

    The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends corresponding application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example by e-mail or via a web form on the website. If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents shall be automatically deleted two months after notification of the decision of refusal, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller stand in the way of deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

  10. privacy policy regarding the use of AddThis

    The controller has integrated components of AddThis on this website. AddThis is a so-called bookmarking provider. The service enables a simplified bookmarking of websites via buttons. By moving the mouse over the AddThis component or by clicking on it, a list of bookmarking and sharing services is displayed. AddThis is used on more than 15 million websites, and the buttons are displayed over 20 billion times a year, according to the operating company.

    AddThis is operated by AddThis, Inc. 1595 Spring Hill Road, Suite 300, Vienna, VA 22182, USA.

    Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the data controller and on which an AddThis component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective AddThis component to download data from the www.addthis.com website. In the course of this technical procedure, AddThis is informed about the visit and which specific individual page of this website is used by the information technology system used by the person concerned. Furthermore, AddThis receives information about the IP address of the computer system used by the person concerned, the type of browser, the browser language, the Internet page called up before our Internet page, the date as well as the time of the visit of our Internet page assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP). AddThis uses this data to create anonymous user profiles. The data and information transmitted to AddThis in this way enable the company AddThis itself as well as the companies associated with AddThis or its partner companies to address the visitors of the website of the person responsible for the processing specifically with personalized and interest-related advertising.

    AddThis displays personalized and interest-based advertising based on a cookie set by the company. This cookie analyses the individual surfing behaviour of the computer system used by the person concerned. The cookie stores the visits to Internet pages coming from the computer system.

    The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as already described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent AddThis from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, cookies already set by AddThis can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs.

    The data subject also has the option of permanently objecting to the processing of personal data by AddThis. To do this, the person concerned must press the opt-out button under the link http://www.addthis.com/privacy/opt-out, which sets an opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie set with the objection is stored on the information technology system used by the person concerned. If the cookies are deleted on the system of the person concerned after an objection, the person concerned must call up the link again and set a new opt-out cookie.

    With the setting of the opt-out cookie, however, it is possible that the Internet pages of the data controller may no longer be fully usable by the data subject.

    AddThis' current privacy policy can be found at http://www.addthis.com/privacy/privacy-policy

  11. Adobe Analytics (Omniture) / Adobe Marketing Cloud Privacy Policy

    The controller has integrated Adobe components on this website. Adobe Analytics (Omniture) or the Adobe Marketing Cloud (hereinafter referred to as "Omniture") is a tool that enables more efficient online marketing and web analysis. Omniture is part of the Adobe Marketing Cloud. The Adobe Marketing Cloud enables real-time analysis of visitor flows on Web sites. The real-time analyses include project reports and allow an ad-hoc analysis of website visitors. Customer interactions are presented in a way that provides the controller with a better overview of the online activities of the users of this website by displaying the data in simple and interactive dashboards and converting them into reports. This enables the processor to receive information in real time and identify problems more quickly.

    The operator of these services is Adobe Systems Software Ireland Limited, 4-6 Riverwalk, Citywest Business Campus, Dublin 24, Republic of Ireland.

    Omniture places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned (cookies have already been explained in advance; this can be read above). Server settings ensure that tracking records sent to Adobe's data center are anonymized prior to geolocalization. Anonymization is implemented by replacing the last part of the IP address. The person responsible for processing has made settings on the server side on the basis of which the IP address of the person concerned is anonymised independently of one another for geolocalisation and range measurement prior to processing. Adobe will use the data and information collected via our website to evaluate the user behaviour of the data subject on behalf of the data controller. Adobe will also use the information to generate reports on user activity on our behalf and to provide other services to our company in connection with the use of our website. Adobe does not combine the IP address of the person concerned with other personal data.
    The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as already described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Omniture from placing a cookie on the person's information technology system. In addition, the cookies already set by Omniture can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs.

    Furthermore, the data subject has the possibility to object to and prevent the collection of data generated by the Adobe cookie and related to the use of this website as well as the processing of this data by Adobe. To do this, the person concerned must press the unsubscribe button under the link http://www.adobe.com/de/privacy/opt-out.html, which sets an opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie set with the objection is stored on the information technology system used by the person concerned. If the cookies are deleted on the system of the person concerned after an objection, the person concerned must call up the link again and set a new opt-out cookie.

    With the setting of the opt-out cookie, however, it is possible that the Internet pages of the data controller may no longer be fully usable by the data subject.

  12. Data protection regulations on the use and application of econda

    The controller has integrated components of the company econda on this website. Econda is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to Internet sites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data on the website from which a person concerned has accessed a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website have been accessed or how often and for how long a subpage has been viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

    The operating company of econda is econda GmbH, Eisenlohrstr. 43, 76135 Karlsruhe, Germany.

    Econda places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the data controller and on which an econda component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically caused by the respective econda component to transmit data to econda for marketing and optimisation purposes. Within the scope of this technical procedure, econda is informed about data that is subsequently used to create pseudonymous user profiles. The user profiles obtained in this way serve to analyse the behaviour of the data subject who has accessed the website of the data controller and are evaluated with the aim of improving and optimising the website. The data collected via the econda component will not be used to identify the data subject without the prior, separate and explicit consent of the data subject. This data is not combined with personal data or with other data containing the same pseudonym.

    The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as already described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent econda from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, cookies already set by econda can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs.

    Furthermore, the data subject has the possibility to object to the collection of data generated by the econda cookie related to the use of this website and to the processing of this data by econda and to prevent such collection. To do this, the person concerned must press the submit button under the http://www.econda.de/econda/unternehmen/datenschutz/widerspruchscookie/ link, which sets the opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie set with the objection is stored on the information technology system used by the person concerned. If the cookies are deleted on the system of the person concerned after an objection, the person concerned must call up the link again and set a new opt-out cookie.

    With the setting of the opt-out cookie, however, it is possible that the Internet pages of the data controller may no longer be fully usable by the data subject.

  13. Data protection regulations on the use and application of etracker

    The person responsible for processing has integrated components of the company etracker on this website. Etracker is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to Internet sites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data on the website from which a person concerned has accessed a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website have been accessed or how often and for how long a subpage has been viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

    etracker is operated by etracker GmbH, Erste Brunnenstraße 1, 20459 Hamburg, Germany.

    Etracker places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. Whenever one of the individual pages of this Internet site is called up, which is operated by the person responsible for processing and on which an etracker component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the person's information technology system is automatically prompted by the respective etracker component to transmit data to etracker for marketing and optimization purposes. In the course of this technical procedure, etracker is informed about data that is subsequently used to create pseudonymous user profiles. The user profiles obtained in this way serve to analyse the behaviour of the data subject who has accessed the website of the data controller and are evaluated with the aim of improving and optimising the website. The data collected via the etracker component will not be used to identify the data subject without the prior, separate and express consent of the data subject. This data is not combined with personal data or with other data containing the same pseudonym.

    The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as already described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent etracker from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, cookies already set by etracker can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

    Furthermore, the person concerned has the option of objecting to and preventing the recording of data generated by the etracker cookie and relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by etracker. To do this, the person concerned must press the cookie-set button under the link http://www.etracker.de/privacy?et=V23Jbb, which sets an opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie set with the objection is stored on the information technology system used by the person concerned. If the cookies are deleted on the system of the person concerned after an objection, the person concerned must call up the link again and set a new opt-out cookie.

    With the setting of the opt-out cookie, however, it is possible that the Internet pages of the data controller may no longer be fully usable by the data subject.

    The data controller has integrated components of Facebook on this website. Facebook is a social network.

    A social network is an Internet-based social meeting place, an online community that usually enables users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or enables the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Facebook enables social network users to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friendship requests, among other things.

    Facebook is operated by Facebook, Inc, 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. The person responsible for the processing of personal data if a data subject lives outside the USA or Canada is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

    Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the person's information technology system is automatically prompted by the respective Facebook component to download a representation of the corresponding Facebook component of Facebook. An overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_DE.
    As part of this technical process, Facebook is informed about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.

    If the person concerned is logged on to Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes which specific subpage of our website the person concerned visits with every visit to our website by the person concerned and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the person concerned. If the person concerned clicks one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the "Like" button, or the person concerned makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the person concerned and stores this personal data.

    Facebook receives information via the Facebook component that the person concerned has visited our website whenever the person concerned is logged on to Facebook at the same time as accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the person concerned clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the person concerned does not want this information to be transmitted to Facebook, they can prevent it from being transmitted by logging out of their Facebook account before calling up our website.
    The data policy published by Facebook, which is available at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains what setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the person concerned. In addition, various applications are available that make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Such applications can be used by the person concerned to suppress data transmission to Facebook.

  15. Privacy Policy for the use of Google AdSense

    The data controller has integrated Google AdSense on this website. Google AdSense is an online service that enables the placement of advertising on third party sites. Google AdSense is based on an algorithm that selects the ads displayed on third party sites according to the content of the respective third party site. Google AdSense allows interest-based targeting of the Internet user, which is implemented by generating individual user profiles.

    The Google AdSense component is operated by Alphabet Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

    The purpose of the Google AdSense component is to include ads on our site. Google AdSense places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Alphabet Inc. is able to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google AdSense component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google AdSense component to transmit data to Alphabet Inc. for the purpose of online advertising and billing of commissions. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Alphabet Inc. receives knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which serve Alphabet Inc. among other things to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission statements.

    The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as already described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Alphabet Inc. from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Alphabet Inc. can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

    Google AdSense also uses so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in Internet pages to enable log file recording and analysis, allowing statistical evaluation. The embedded pixel-code enables Alphabet Inc. to recognize whether and when an Internet page was opened by an affected person and which links were clicked on by the affected person. Tracking pixels are used, among other things, to evaluate the visitor flow of an Internet page.

    Google AdSense transfers personal data and information, including the IP address, to Alphabet Inc. in the United States of America in order to collect and bill the advertisements displayed. This personal data is stored and processed in the United States of America. Alphabet Inc. may disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.

    Google AdSense will be explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.de/intl/de/adsense/start/

  16. Privacy policy for the use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)

    The data controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to Internet sites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data on the website from which a person concerned has accessed a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website have been accessed or how often and for how long a subpage has been viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

    The Google Analytics component is operated by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

    The data controller uses the suffix "_gat._anonymizeIp" for the web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, Google shortens and anonymizes the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned when accessing our Internet pages from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

    The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information collected to evaluate the use of our website, among other things, to compile online reports for us that show the activities on our website and to provide other services in connection with the use of our website.

    Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which serves Google, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission statements.

    Cookies are used to store personal information, such as access time, the location from which access came and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned. Whenever you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.

    The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as already described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

    Furthermore, it is possible for the person concerned to object to and prevent the collection of data generated by Google Analytics relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. To do this, the person concerned must download and install a browser add-on from the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information on visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered a contradiction by Google. If the person's information technology system is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later time, the person concerned must reinstall the browser add-on to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the person concerned or another person within their control, it is possible to reinstall or reactivate the browser add-on.

    Further information and Google's current privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html Google Analytics will be explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.com/intl/de_en/analytics/.

  17. Privacy Policy for Use and Usage of Google Remarketing

    The data controller has integrated Google Remarketing services into this website. Google Remarketing is a feature of Google AdWords that allows a company to display advertisements to Internet users who have previously visited the company's website. The integration of Google Remarketing therefore allows a company to create user-related advertisements and consequently to display interest-relevant advertisements to the Internet user.

    The operator of Google Remarketing services is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

    The purpose of Google Remarketing is to display interest-relevant advertising. Google Remarketing allows us to display advertisements on the Google Advertising Network or on other websites that are tailored to the individual needs and interests of Internet users.
    Google Remarketing places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google will be able to recognize the visitor to our website when he or she subsequently visits websites that are also members of the Google advertising network. Every time a website on which the Google Remarketing service has been integrated, the person's Internet browser automatically identifies itself with Google. As part of this technical procedure, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address or the user's surfing behaviour, which Google uses, among other things, to display interest-relevant advertising.

    The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the web pages visited by the person concerned. Personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is therefore transferred to Google in the United States of America each time he or she visits our Internet pages. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.

    The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as already described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

    Furthermore, the person concerned has the possibility to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, the person concerned must access the www.google.de/settings/ads link from each of the Internet browsers they use and make the required settings there.

    Further information and Google's current privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/

  18. Privacy policy for the use of Google+

    The data controller has integrated the Google+ button as a component on this website. Google+ is a so-called social network. A social network is an Internet-based social meeting place, an online community that usually enables users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or enables the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Google+ enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friendship requests, among other things.

    Google+ is operated by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

    Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the person responsible for processing and on which a Google+ button has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google+ button to download a representation of the corresponding Google+ button from Google. As part of this technical procedure, Google is informed about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned. More detailed information about Google+ is available at https://developers.google.com/+/.

    If the person concerned is logged in to Google+ at the same time, every time the person concerned visits our website and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website, Google recognises which specific subpage of our website the person concerned visits. This information is collected by the Google+ button and assigned by Google to the respective Google+ account of the person concerned.

    If the person concerned clicks one of the Google+ buttons integrated on our website and thereby makes a Google+1 recommendation, Google assigns this information to the personal Google+ user account of the person concerned and stores this personal data. Google stores the Google+1 recommendation of the person concerned and makes it publicly available in accordance with the conditions accepted by the person concerned. A Google+1 recommendation made by the person concerned on this website will subsequently be stored and processed together with other personal data, such as the name of the Google+1 account used by the person concerned and the photo stored in this account in other Google services, such as the search engine results of the Google search engine, the Google account of the person concerned or in other places, such as on websites or in connection with advertisements. Furthermore, Google is able to link the visit to this website with other personal data stored by Google. Google also records this personal information for the purpose of improving or optimising the various services provided by Google.

    The Google+ button will always inform Google that the person concerned has visited our website if the person concerned is logged in to Google+ at the same time as accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the person concerned clicks the Google+ button or not. If the person concerned does not want his or her personal data to be transmitted to Google, he or she can prevent such transmission by logging out of his or her Google+ account before calling up our website.

    Further information and Google's current privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ Further information from Google about the Google+1 button can be found at https://developers.google.com/+/web/buttons-policy.

  19. Privacy policy for the use of Google AdWords

    The data controller has integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to place ads in both Google's search engine results and the Google Advertising Network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-define certain keywords to display an ad in Google's search engine results only when the user uses the search engine to retrieve a keyword-relevant search result. On the Google Network, ads are distributed to thematically relevant websites using an automatic algorithm and using the previously defined keywords.

    The operator of Google AdWords services is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

    The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our website by displaying interest-relevant advertising on the websites of third parties and in the search engine results of the Google search engine and by displaying third-party advertising on our website.

    If a person concerned reaches our website via a Google ad, a so-called conversion cookie is stored on the information technology system of the person concerned by Google. What cookies are has already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and is not used to identify the person concerned. If the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie is used to determine whether certain sub-pages, such as the shopping basket of an online shop system, have been called up on our website. The conversion cookie enables both us and Google to track whether a person who has accessed our website via an AdWords ad has generated revenue, i.e. has completed or cancelled a purchase of goods.

    The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to generate visit statistics for our website. We use these visit statistics to determine the total number of users who have been referred to us via AdWords ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could identify the person concerned.
    The conversion cookie is used to store personal information, such as the websites visited by the person concerned. Personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is therefore transferred to Google in the United States of America each time he or she visits our Internet pages. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.

    The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as already described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

    Furthermore, the person concerned has the possibility to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, the person concerned must access the www.google.de/settings/ads link from each of the Internet browsers they use and make the required settings there.

    Further information and Google's current privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/

  20. Privacy Policy for the use of Jetpack for WordPress

    The person responsible for processing has integrated Jetpack on this website. Jetpack is a WordPress plug-in which offers the operator of a website based on WordPress additional functions. Jetpack allows the website operator, among other things, an overview of the visitors to the site. The display of related articles and publications or the possibility of sharing content on the site also makes it possible to increase the number of visitors. In addition, security functions are integrated into Jetpack, so that a website using Jetpack is better protected against brute force attacks. Jetpack also optimizes and accelerates the loading of images integrated on the website.

    The Jetpack plug-in for WordPress is operated by Automattic Inc, 132 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. The operating company uses the tracking technology of Quantcast Inc. 201 Third Street, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

    Jetpack places a cookie on the person's information technology system. What cookies are has already been explained above. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the person responsible for processing and on which a jetpack component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically caused by the respective jetpack component to transmit data to Automattic for analysis purposes. As part of this technical process, Automattic is informed about the data that is subsequently used to create an overview of Internet site visits. The data collected in this way are used to analyse the behaviour of the data subject who has accessed the data controller's website and are evaluated with the aim of optimising the website. The data collected via the Jetpack component will not be used to identify the data subject without the prior express consent of the data subject. The data is also made available to Quantcast. Quantcast uses the data for the same purposes as Automattic.

    The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as already described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Automattic/Quantcast from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, cookies already set by Automattic can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

    Furthermore, the person concerned has the possibility to object to the collection of data generated by the Jetpack cookie and related to the use of this website as well as the processing of this data by Automattic/Quantcast and to prevent such collection. To do this, the person concerned must press the opt-out button under the link https://www.quantcast.com/opt-out/, which sets an opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie set with the objection is stored on the information technology system used by the person concerned. If the cookies are deleted on the system of the person concerned after an objection, the person concerned must call up the link again and set a new opt-out cookie.

    With the setting of the opt-out cookie, however, it is possible that the Internet pages of the data controller may no longer be fully usable by the data subject.

  25. Data Protection Regulations on the Use and Application of the Scalable Central Measuring Procedure of INFOnline GmbH

    The person responsible for processing has integrated a tracking pixel for range measurement on this website. A pixel-code is a miniature graphic embedded in Internet pages to enable log file recording and analysis for subsequent statistical evaluation. The integrated tracking pixels are used by INFOnline GmbH's Scalable Central Measurement Method (SZM).

    The scalable central measuring method is operated by INFOnline GmbH, Forum Bonn Nord, Brühler Str. 9, 53119 Bonn, Germany.

    The scalable central measurement method is used to determine statistical key figures, i.e. the range of coverage measurement. The embedded pixel-code shows whether, when and by how many users (including the person concerned) have opened our website and what content has been accessed. 

    The data obtained by means of the scalable central measuring method are collected anonymously. For the purpose of recognizing the users of a website, a so-called session cookie is set, i.e. a signature is created which is composed of various automatically transmitted information or uses alternative methods. The IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned is only collected and processed in anonymous form. The person concerned is not identified at any time.

    The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as already described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent INFOnline from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, cookies already set by INFOnline can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs.
    Furthermore, the data subject has the option of objecting to and preventing INFOnline from recording data generated by INFOnline in connection with the use of this website and the processing of such data by INFOnline. To do this, the person concerned must press the opt-out button under the link http://optout.ioam.de, which sets an opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie set with the objection is stored on the information technology system used by the person concerned. If the cookies are deleted on the system of the person concerned after an objection, the person concerned must call up the link again and set a new opt-out cookie.

  30. legal basis of the processing

    Art. 6 I lit. a 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 performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case for example with processing operations necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing processes that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, a hospital or other third parties. The processing would then be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if 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 data subject do not prevail. Such processing procedures are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the person concerned is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47, second sentence, DS-GVO).

  31. legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party

    If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, it is in our legitimate interest to conduct our business for the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

  32. Duration for which the personal data is stored

    The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After the expiry of this period, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.

  33. 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 failure to provide them

    We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). In some cases, it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded if a data subject provides us with personal data which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company enters into a contract with him/her. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Prior to the provision of personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact our data protection officer. Our data protection officer will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract or required 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.

  34. existence of automated decision making

    As a responsible company, we do without automatic decision-making or profiling.
