If you wish to view our website, we will collect the following data; this is technically necessary for us to display our website and guarantee that it is stable and secure (the legal basis is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR in conjunction with our legitimate interest in the provision of a functional, secure web presence):

The purpose of technically necessary cookies is to enable and simplify use of the website and the features it provides. Some of the features on this website cannot be offered without cookies.
The user data collected by technically necessary cookies is not used to generate user profiles.
Provided you give us your separate consent, cookies may also be used to provide external media such as videos and maps, analyse your website use, and enable other functions.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR; the controller’s legitimate interest lies in the provision of secure, stable, efficient website features and the information which can be accessed through these.

(2) In some cases, we use external service providers to process your personal data. These have been carefully selected, are bound by our instructions and are monitored on a regular basis.

This applies in particular if the processing is not necessary for the performance of a contract we have concluded with you, as specified in each of the feature descriptions provided below. If you object to this processing, please state the reasons why we may not process your personal data as we did before. If your objection is justified, we will review the situation and either cease/adjust the data processing or inform you of our compelling legitimate grounds for continuing it.

Section 6 Usage analysis
Use of Google Analytics
(1) This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited (“Google“). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files which are stored on your computer and analyse your website use. The information generated by the cookie regarding your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will shorten your IP address in the European Union member states or in other countries that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before the transmission takes place. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to analyse your website use, generate reports on website activities, and render other services for the website operator relating to website and internet use.
(2) The IP address transmitted by your browser in connection with Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data.
(3) You can prevent the cookies from being stored by changing your browser software settings accordingly; however, please note that if you do this, you may no longer be able to use all the features on this website in full. Moreover, you can prevent Google from collecting and processing the data generated by your cookie pertaining to your website use (incl. your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
(4) This website uses Google Analytics with the “_anonymizeIp()” extension. This means that IP addresses are processed in shortened form and cannot be connected with a specific person. If any of the personal data collected can be used to identify you, this connection will immediately be blocked, with the result that the personal data will immediately be erased.
(5) We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. We can use the statistics obtained to improve our offering and make it more interesting for you as the user. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR in conjunction with your consent.
(1) Subject to your consent pursuant to the legal basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR, we use “Facebook Pixel”, provided by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or if you are based in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”) for our website.
(2) We use Facebook Pixel so that the Facebook ads placed by us are only displayed to Facebook users who have shown an interest in our website or in specific products or topics. Our aim in using Facebook Pixel is also to ensure that our ads on Facebook reflect the user’s potential interests and are not perceived as a nuisance. Facebook Pixel enables us to determine the effectiveness of our Facebook ads and to obtain statistics on the number of users who reach our website by clicking on an ad.
(3) Subject to your consent, the Facebook Pixel is automatically integrated into any web page you visit; a cookie may also be placed on your end device. If you are logged in to Facebook at that time or log in to Facebook later on, your visit to our website will be stored in your Facebook profile. The data collected is anonymised and does not allow us to determine your identity. However, Facebook itself does store and process the data, and may therefore use it for its own advertising or market research purposes through the connection with your Facebook profile. If we need to reconcile the data with Facebook, it will first be encrypted in the browser before being sent to Facebook through a secure connection.
(4) The volume and processing of the data are defined in Facebook’s Data Policy. Basic information about Facebook ads is also available at: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php. You will find further information about Facebook Pixel and how it works in Facebook’s help section: https://www.facebook.com/business/help/651294705016616.
(5) You can object to the collection of data by Facebook Pixel and the use of your data to display Facebook ads. To do this, visit the web page set up by Facebook for this purpose and follow the instructions on settings for usage-based advertising: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads. All settings are platform-independent, i.e. they apply to all end devices (e.g. mobile or desktop devices).
Section 7 Newsletter
(1) By giving your consent, you can subscribe to our newsletter (where offered), which provides information on interesting current offers. The services advertised are specified in the declaration of consent.
(2) We use the “double opt-in” procedure for subscriptions to our newsletter. This means that after you register for the newsletter, we will send an email to the email address you gave us asking you to confirm that you want us to send you the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration within 24 hours, your information will be blocked and then erased automatically after a period of one month. We will also store the IP addresses you use and the times at which you registered for the newsletter and confirmed your registration. We use this procedure so that we have proof of your subscription and can investigate any potential misuse of your personal data.
(3) The only information you need to provide when subscribing to the newsletter is your email address. The provision of other, separately marked data is voluntary; this data will be used so that we can address you personally. After you confirm your subscription, we will store your email address so that we can send you the newsletter. The legal basis is Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR.
(4) You can withdraw your consent to receiving the newsletter at any time by opting out. You can communicate your withdrawal by clicking on the link provided in each newsletter email or by sending us a message using the contact data provided above.

Other legitimate interests in this context may for example include the burden of proof in proceedings under the German General Act on Equal Treatment (Allgemeine Gleichbehandlungsgesetz, AGG) The legal basis for the processing of personal data provided by applicants is section 26 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, BDSG) in conjunction with Art. 6(1)(b), 88 GDPR. If the processing is necessary to fulfil legal requirements, the legal basis is Art. 6 (1)(c) GDPR, and if the processing is based on the data subject’s consent, the legal basis is Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR in conjunction with section 26 BDSG.
