In view of the discussion as to the use of analysis tools with complete IP addresses we wish to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the add-on “_anonymizelp()” and therefore IP addresses are processed in an abbreviated form only to prevent direct reference to an individual.

Furthermore, we wish to point out that Google has provided a browser add-on for disabling Google Analytics. The browser add-on for disabling Google Analytics provides the website user with greater control which data of websites will be collected by Google Analytics. The add-on informs JavaScript (ga.js) of Google Analytics that no information about the website access shall be transferred to Google Analytics.

Add-on: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

13. Legal basis of processing

Art 6 I lit. a GDPR shall be the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent to a certain purpose of the processing. If processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as for instance with processing operations for the supply of goods or rendering services or return services, processing shall be based on Art 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same shall be applicable for processing operations necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures, such as inquiries as to our products and services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which prompts the processing of personal data, such as compliance with tax obligations, processing shall be based on Art 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases the processing of personal data might be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case if a visitor is injured in our company and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be forwarded to a physician, hospital or another third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. Finally processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations not covered by any of the aforementioned legal grounds are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a vital interest of our company or a third party, unless interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject prevail. We are entitled to such processing operations because they are explicitly mentioned by the European legislator. In this regard the latter’s opinion was that a legitimate interest could be assumed, if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).

14. 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 GDPR, our legitimate interest will be the performance of our business activities in favor of the welfare of our staff members and our shareholders.

15. Storage period of personal data

The criterion for the storage period of personal data shall be the respective legal retention period. Upon expiry of the period the respective data shall be routinely deleted, provided that they are no longer necessary for the performance of the contract or contract initiation.

16. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of a contract; obligation of the data subject to provide personal data; possible consequences of a non-provision

We inform you that the provision of personal data partially is prescribed by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may be a result of contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). From time to time it may be necessary for the conclusion of a contract that a data subject provides us with personal data which subsequently must be processed by us. The data subject shall be obliged to provide personal data, if our company enters into a contract with him or her. The non-provision of personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject cannot be concluded. Prior to the provision of personal data by the data subject the latter must contact our data protection officer. Our data protection officer informs the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is prescribed by law or contract or necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide personal data and what consequences would have to be expected if personal data are not provided.

17. Automated decision-making

As a responsible company we waive automated decision-making or profiling.
