8. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google Analytics (withanonymization function)

On this website, the controller has integrated the component of Google Analytics (with theanonymizer function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection,gathering, and analysis of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. A web analysis servicecollects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer),which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Webanalytics are mainly used for the optimization of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefitanalysis of Internet advertising.

The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy,Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.

For the web analytics through Google Analytics the controller uses the application “_gat._anonymizeIp”. By means of this application the IP address of the Internet connection of the datasubject is abridged by Google and anonymised when accessing our websites from a Member Stateof the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European EconomicArea.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the traffic on our website. Googleuses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provideonline reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services concerningthe use of our Internet site for us.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. Thedefinition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled toanalyse the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internetsite, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google Analytics component wasintegrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject willautomatically submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of onlineadvertising and the settlement of commissions to Google. During the course of this technicalprocedure, the enterprise Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP addressof the data subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks,and subsequently create commission settlements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from whichthe access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website by the data subject. With each visitto our Internet site, such personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by thedata subject, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal dataare stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal datacollected through the technical procedure to third parties.

The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at anytime by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently denythe setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent GoogleAnalytics from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. Inaddition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browseror other software programs.

In addition, the data subject has the possibility of objecting to a collection of data that are generatedby Google Analytics, which is related to the use of this website, as well as the processing of thisdata by Google and the chance to preclude any such. For this purpose, the data subject mustdownload a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and install it.This browser add-on tells Google Analytics through a JavaScript, that any data and informationabout the visits of Internet pages may not be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation ofthe browser add-ons is considered an objection by Google. If the information technology systemof the data subject is later deleted, formatted, or newly installed, then the data subject must reinstallthe browser add-ons to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on was uninstalled by thedata subject or any other person who is attributable to their sphere of competence, or is disabled,it is possible to execute the reinstallation or reactivation of the browser add-ons.Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrievedunder https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and underhttp://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Google Analytics is further explained under thefollowing Link https://www.google.com/analytics/.

9. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google-AdWords

On this website, the controller has integrated Google AdWords. Google AdWords is a service forInternet advertising that allows the advertiser to place ads in Google search engine results and theGoogle advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-define specifickeywords with the help of which an ad on Google’s search results only then displayed, when theuser utilizes the search engine to retrieve a keyword-relevant search result. In the GoogleAdvertising Network, the ads are distributed on relevant web pages using an automatic algorithm,taking into account the previously defined keywords.

The operating company of Google AdWords is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, MountainView, CA 94043-1351, UNITED STATES.

The purpose of Google AdWords is the promotion of our website by the inclusion of relevantadvertising on the websites of third parties and in the search engine results of the search engineGoogle and an insertion of third-party advertising on our website.

If a data subject reaches our website via a Google ad, a conversion cookie is filed on theinformation technology system of the data subject through Google. The definition of cookies isexplained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after 30 days and is not used to identifythe data subject. If the cookie has not expired, the conversion cookie is used to check whethercertain sub-pages, e.g., the shopping cart from an online shop system, were called up on ourwebsite. Through the conversion cookie, both Google and the controller can understand whethera person who reached an AdWords ad on our website generated sales, that is, executed or cancelleda sale of goods.

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google tocreate visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are used in order to determine the totalnumber of users who have been served through AdWords ads to ascertain the success or failure ofeach AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads in the future. Neither our company nor otherGoogle AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could identify the data subject.The conversion cookie stores personal information, e.g. the Internet pages visited by the datasubject. Each time we visit our Internet pages, personal data, including the IP address of theInternet access used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America.These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass thesepersonal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as stated above,by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently deny thesetting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google fromplacing a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition,a cookie set by Google AdWords may be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or othersoftware programs.

The data subject has a possibility of objecting to the interest based advertisement of Google.Therefore, the data subject must access from each of the browsers in use the linkwww.google.de/settings/ads and set the desired settings.Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrievedunder https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

10. Legal basis for the processing

Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtainconsent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for theperformance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, whenprocessing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, theprocessing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operationswhich are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiriesconcerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by whichprocessing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processingis based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessaryto protect the vital interests of the data subject or of 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 orother vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Thenthe processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations could bebased on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are notcovered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposesof the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interestsare overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject whichrequire protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissiblebecause they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that alegitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47Sentence 2 GDPR).

11. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party

Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate interestis to carry out our business in favour of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.

12. Period for which the personal data will be stored

The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutoryretention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, aslong as it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.

13. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; Requirement necessary toenter into a contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possibleconsequences of failure to provide such data

We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or canalso result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes itmay be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, whichmust subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us withpersonal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of thepersonal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not beconcluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact anyemployee. The employee clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the personal data isrequired by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is anobligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.

14. Existence of automated decision-making

>As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
