The following overview summarizes the types of data processed and the purposes of their processing and refers to the data subjects.
In the following, we share the legal basis of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), on the basis of which we process personal data. Please note that in addition to the provisions of the GDPR, the national data protection regulations in your or our country of residence and domicile may apply. Should more specific legal bases also apply in individual cases, we will inform you of this in the data protection declaration.
National data protection regulations in Germany: In addition to the data protection regulations of the General Data Protection Regulation, national regulations on data protection in Germany apply. This includes in particular the law on protection against misuse of personal data in data processing (Federal Data Protection Act - BDSG). The BDSG contains in particular special regulations on the right to information, the right to deletion, the right to object, the processing of special categories of personal data, the processing for other purposes and the transmission as well as automated decision-making in individual cases including profiling. Furthermore, it regulates data processing for the purposes of the employment relationship (Section 26 BDSG), in particular with regard to the establishment, implementation or termination of employment relationships and the consent of employees. State data protection laws of the individual federal states can also be applied.
We take appropriate technical and organizational measures in accordance with the legal requirements, taking into account the state of the art, the implementation costs and the type, scope, circumstances and purposes of processing, as well as the different probability of occurrence and the extent of the threat to the rights and freedoms of natural persons to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk.
The measures include, in particular, ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling the physical and electronic access to the data as well as the access, input, transfer, safeguarding of availability and their separation. Furthermore, we have set up procedures that guarantee the exercise of data subject rights, the deletion of data and reactions to the risk to the data. We also take the protection of personal data into account when developing or selecting hardware, software and processes in accordance with the principle of data protection, through technology design and through data protection-friendly default settings.
SSL encryption (https): In order to protect your data transmitted via our online offer, we use SSL encryption. You can recognize such encrypted connections by the prefix https:// in the address line of your browser.
As part of our processing of personal data, it may happen that the data is transmitted to other bodies, companies, legally independent organizational units or persons, or that it is disclosed to them. The recipients of this data can e.g. Payment institutions in the context of payment transactions, service providers commissioned with IT tasks or providers of services and content that are integrated into a website. In such a case, we observe the legal requirements and in particular conclude corresponding contracts or agreements that serve to protect your data with the recipients of your data.
If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA)) or the processing as part of the use of third-party services or the disclosure or transmission of data to other people, entities or companies takes place, this takes place only in accordance with the legal requirements.
Subject to express consent or contractually or legally required transmission, we process or leave the data only in third countries with a recognized data protection level, to which the US processors certified under the "Privacy Shield" belong, or on the basis of special guarantees, e.g. process contractual obligations through so-called standard protection clauses of the EU Commission, the presence of certifications or binding internal data protection regulations (Art. 44 to 49 GDPR, information page of the EU Commission: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection_de ).
Cookies are text files that contain data from visited websites or domains and are saved by a browser on the user's computer. The primary purpose of a cookie is to save information about a user during or after their visit within an online offer. For the stored information, e.g. the language settings on a website, the login status, a shopping cart or the place where a video was watched. The term cookies also includes other technologies that perform the same functions as cookies (e.g. if user information is saved using pseudonymous online identifiers, also known as "user IDs")
A distinction is made between the following types of cookies and functions:
Users can create a user account. As part of the registration, the users are provided with the required mandatory information and processed for the purpose of providing the user account on the basis of contractual obligations. The processed data include in particular the login information (name, password and an email address). The data entered during registration will be used for the purpose of using the user account and its purpose.
Users can learn about processes that are relevant to their user account, such as technical changes, to be informed by email. If users have terminated their user account, their data with regard to the user account will be deleted, subject to a legal retention requirement. It is the responsibility of the users to back up their data if the termination is successful before the end of the contract. We are entitled to irretrievably delete all user data stored during the contract period.
As part of the use of our registration and registration functions and the use of the user account, we save the IP address and the time of the respective user action. The storage takes place on the basis of our legitimate interests as well as those of the users in protection against abuse and other unauthorized use. In principle, this data will not be passed on to third parties unless it is necessary to pursue our claims or there is a legal obligation to do so.
"Single sign-on" or "single sign-on registration or" authentication "are procedures that allow users to register with a provider of single sign-on procedures (e.g. a social network), also with our online offer . are already registered with the single sign-on provider and confirm the single sign-on registration with a button.
Authentication takes place directly at the respective single sign-on provider. As part of such authentication, we receive a user ID with the information that the user is logged in to the respective single sign-on provider under this user ID and an ID that we cannot use for other purposes (so-called "user handle "). Whether additional data is transmitted to us depends solely on the single sign-on procedure used, on the data releases selected for authentication and also on what data users have in the privacy or other settings of the user account for the single -Sign-on provider. Depending on the single-sign-on provider and the choice of users, different data may be available, usually the e-mail address and the user name. The password entered by the sign-on procedure at the single sign-on provider is neither visible to us nor saved by us.
Users are asked to note that the information they store with us can be automatically compared with their user account with the single sign-on provider, but this is not always possible or actually takes place. E.g. change the email addresses of the users, you have to change them manually in your user account with us.
If agreed with the user, we can use the single sign-on registration as part of or before the fulfillment of the contract, insofar as the user has been requested to do so, within the scope of consent and otherwise set it on the basis of the legitimate interests of us and Interests of the users in an effective and secure registration system.
Should users decide to no longer want to use their single account sign-on provider connection for the single sign-on procedure, they must remove this connection within their single sign-on provider account. If users want to delete their data from us, they must cancel their registration with us.
Services and service providers used:
When contacting us (e.g. via contact form, e-mail, telephone or via social media), the details of the inquiring persons are processed, insofar as this is necessary to answer the contact inquiries and any measures requested.
The answering of the contact inquiries within the framework of contractual or pre-contractual relationships takes place in order to fulfill our contractual obligations or to answer (pre) contractual inquiries and, moreover, on the basis of the legitimate interests in answering the inquiries.
In order to be able to provide our online offer securely and efficiently, we use the services of one or more web hosting providers, from whose servers (or servers managed by them) the online offer can be accessed. For these purposes, we can use infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services as well as security and technical maintenance services.
The data processed as part of the provision of the hosting offer can include all information relating to the users of our online offer, which is incurred in the context of use and communication. This regularly includes the IP address that is necessary to be able to deliver the content of online offers to browsers, and all entries made within our online offer or websites.
Emailing and hosting: The web hosting services we use also include the sending, receiving and storage of emails. For these purposes, the addresses of the recipients and senders as well as other information regarding the sending of e-mails (e.g. the providers involved) and the content of the respective e-mails are processed. The aforementioned data can also be processed for the purpose of detecting SPAM. We ask you to note that e-mails are generally not sent encrypted on the Internet. As a rule, e-mails are encrypted during transport, but (unless an end-to-end encryption process is used) not on the servers from which they are sent and received. We can therefore not accept any responsibility for the transmission path of the emails between the sender and the receipt on our server.
Collection of access data and log files: We ourselves (or our web hosting provider) collect data on every access to the server (so-called server log files). The server log files can include the address and name of the websites and files accessed, the date and time of access, the amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page) and, as a rule, IP Addresses and the requesting provider belong.
The server log files can be used on the one hand for security purposes, e.g. to avoid overloading the server (in particular in the event of abusive attacks, so-called DDoS attacks) and on the other hand to ensure the utilization of the servers and their stability.
We maintain online presences within social networks and process user data in this context in order to communicate with the users active there or to offer information about us.
We would like to point out that data of users outside the European Union can be processed. This can result in risks for the user, because e.g. enforcing users' rights could be difficult. With regard to US providers who are certified under the Privacy Shield or offer comparable guarantees of a secure level of data protection, we would like to point out that they are committed to complying with EU data protection standards.
Furthermore, the data of users within social networks are usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, user profiles are created on the basis of user behavior and the resulting interests of users. The usage profiles can in turn be used to e.g. Place advertisements inside and outside the networks that are believed to correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the users' computers in which the usage behavior and interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, data can be stored in the usage profiles regardless of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them).
For a detailed description of the respective processing forms and the possibilities of objection (opt-out), we refer to the data protection declarations and information from the operators of the respective networks.
Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of data subject rights, we would like to point out that these can be most effectively asserted by the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can take appropriate measures and provide information directly. If you still need help, you can contact us.
Services and service providers used:
We integrate functional and content elements into our online offer, which are obtained from the servers of their respective providers (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers"). These can be, for example, graphics, videos or social media buttons and contributions (hereinafter: uniformly referred to as "content").
The integration always presupposes that the third-party providers of this content process the IP address of the users, since without the IP address they could not send the content to their browser. The IP address is therefore required to display this content or functions. We strive to only use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. Third-party providers can also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as "web beacons") for statistical or marketing purposes. The "pixel tags" can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information can also be stored in cookies on the user's device and contain, among other things, technical information about the browser and the operating system, referring websites, the time of visit and other information on the use of our online offer, as well as being linked to such information from other sources.
Services and service providers used:
The data processed by us will be deleted in accordance with the legal requirements as soon as their consent for processing is revoked or other permits no longer apply (e.g. if the purpose of processing this data has ceased to apply or if it is not necessary for the purpose).
If the data is not deleted because it is required for other and legally permissible purposes, its processing is restricted to these purposes. This means that the data is blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies e.g. for data that must be kept for commercial or tax law reasons or whose storage is necessary to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person.
Further information on the deletion of personal data can also be given in the context of the individual data protection information in this data protection declaration.
We ask you to inform yourself regularly about the content of our data protection declaration. We will adapt the data protection declaration as soon as the changes to the data processing carried out by us make this necessary. We will inform you as soon as the changes make it necessary to act on your part (e.g. consent) or other individual notification.
If we provide addresses and contact information of companies and organizations in this data protection declaration, please note that the addresses can change over time and ask you to check the information before contacting us.
