What Is It About?

This privacy statement complies with the legal requirements for transparency in the processing of personal data. This means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, such as your name, age, address, telephone number, date of birth, email address, IP address or user behaviour when visiting a website. Information through which we cannot establish a link to your person, (or can only do so with disproportionate effort) e.g. through anonymisation, is not considered personal data. The processing of personal data (e.g. collection, retrieval, use, storage or transmission) always requires a legal basis and a defined purpose.

Stored personal data are deleted as soon as the purpose of the processing has been fulfilled and there are no legitimate grounds for continued storage of the data. We inform you about the specific storage periods or criteria for storage in the individual processing procedures. Irrespective of this, we store your personal data in individual cases for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims and if there are statutory retention obligations.

Who Gets My Data?

We only disclose your personal data, processed on our website, to third parties if this is necessary for the fulfilment of the purpose and is covered by the legal basis in individual cases (e.g. consent or safeguarding of legitimate interests). In addition, we disclose personal data to third parties in individual cases if this serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. Possible recipients in such cases may be law enforcement agencies, lawyers, auditors, courts, etc.

 

Insofar as we use service providers for the operation of our website, who process personal data on our behalf within the scope of commissioned processing pursuant to Art. 28 DSGVO, they may be recipients of your personal data. For more information on the use of commissioned processors as well as web services, please refer to the overview of the individual processing operations.

Other cookies, however, enable us to carry out various analyses, so that we can recognise the browser you are using when you revisit our website and to transmit various information to us (non-essential cookies). Among other things, the use of cookies enables us to make our website more user-friendly and effective by tracking your use of our website and determining your preferred settings (e.g. country and language preferences).

They cannot execute programs or contain viruses.

We provide information about the respective services for which we use cookies in the individual processing procedures. You can find detailed information on the cookies used in the cookie settings or in the Consent Manager of this website.

  • Correction of incorrect or incomplete data stored by us pursuant to Art. 16 DSGVO ;
  • Deletion pursuant to Art. 17 DSGVO of the data stored by us, insofar as the processing is not necessary for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information, for the fulfilment of a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims;

You will receive your data in a structured, common and machine-readable format or we will transfer the data directly to another responsible party, insofar as this is technically feasible.
  • Objection according to Art. 21 DSGVO to the processing of your personal data, insofar as this occurs on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. e, f DSGVO and there are reasons for this which arise from your particular situation or the objection is aimed at direct advertising.

Google DoubleClick

Nature and Scope of the Processing

We have integrated components of DoubleClick by Google on our website. DoubleClick is a brand of Google, under which mainly special online marketing solutions are promoted to advertising agencies and publishers. DoubleClick by Google transfers data to the DoubleClick server with each impression as well as with clicks or other activities.

Each of these data transfers triggers a cookie request to the browser of the data subject. If the browser accepts this request, DoubleClick sets a cookie in your browser.

DoubleClick uses a cookie ID, which is required to execute the technical procedure. The cookie ID is required, for example, to display an advertisement in a browser. DoubleClick can also use the cookie ID to record which advertisements have already been displayed in a browser in order to avoid duplicate placements. Furthermore, the cookie ID enables DoubleClick to record conversions. Conversions are recorded, for example, when a DoubleClick ad has previously been displayed to a user and the user subsequently makes a purchase on the advertiser's website using the same internet browser.

A DoubleClick cookie does not contain any personal data, but may contain additional campaign identifiers. A campaign identifier serves to identify the campaigns with which you have already had contact on other websites. As part of this service, Google obtains knowledge of data that Google also uses to generate commission statements. Among other things, Google can track that you have clicked on certain links on our website. In this case, your data will be passed on to the operator of DoubleClick, Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Further information and the applicable privacy policy of DoubleClick by Google can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy.

Purpose and legal basis

We process your data with the help of the Double-Click cookie for the purpose of optimising and displaying advertisements on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG. You give your consent by setting the use of cookies (cookie banner / Consent Manager), with which you can also declare your revocation at any time with effect for the future in accordance with Art. 7 para. 3 DSGVO. The cookie is used, among other things, to place and display user-relevant advertising and to generate reports on advertising campaigns or to improve them. Furthermore, the cookie is used to avoid multiple displays of the same advertisement. Each time you call up one of the individual pages of our website on which a DoubleClick component has been integrated, your browser is automatically prompted by the respective DoubleClick component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions. There is no legal or contractual obligation to provide your data. If you do not give us your consent, it will be possible to visit our website without restriction, but not all functions may be fully available.
