III. General information on data processing

1. Scope of processing personal data
In general, we only process the personal data of our users to the extent necessary to provide a functioning website with our content and services. The regular processing of personal data only takes place with the consent of the user. Exceptions include cases where prior consent cannot be technically obtained and where the processing of the data is permitted by law.

2. Legal basis for data processing
Where consent is appropriate for processing personal data, Art. 6 (1) (1) (a) GDPR serves as the legal basis to obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of their data. As for the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract of which the data subject is party, Art. 6 (1) (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual activities. When it is necessary to process personal data in order to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) (1) (c) GDPR serves as the legal basis. If vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) (1) (d) GDPR serves as the legal basis. If the processing of data is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or that of a third party, and the fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the interest of the former, Art. 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR will serve as the legal basis for the processing of data.

3. Data removal and storage duration
The personal data of the data subject will be erased or restricted as soon as the purpose of its storage has been accomplished. Additional storage may occur if this is provided for by the European or national legislator within the EU regulations, law, or other relevant regulations to which the data controller is subject. Restriction or erasure of the data also takes place when the storage period stipulated by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need to prolong the storage of the data for the purpose of concluding or fulfiling the respective contract.

IV. Rights of the data subject

  • The processing is unlawful, and you oppose the erasure of the personal data and instead request the restriction of their use instead.
  • The data controller or its representative no longer need the personal data for the purpose of processing, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims; or
  • If you have objected to the processing pursuant and it is not yet certain whether the legitimate interests of the data controller override your interests.

4. Right to erasure ("Right to be forgotten") (Art. 17 GDPR)
If you request from the data controller to delete your personal data without undue delay, they are required to do so immediately if one of the following applies:

Use of Google Tag Manager
1. Scope of processing of personal data
We use the Google Tag Manager (https://www.google.com/intl/de/tagmanager/) of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA and its representative in the Union Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, D04 E5W5, Dublin, Ireland (Hereinafter referred to as Google). With Google Tag Manager, tags from Google and third-party services can be managed and bundled and embedded on an online presence. Tags are small code elements on an online presence that are used, among other things, to measure visitor numbers and behavior, capture the impact of online advertising and social channels, use remarketing and targeting, and test and optimize online presences. When a user visits the online presence, the current tag configuration is sent to the user's browser. It contains statements about which tags are to be triggered. Google Tag Manager triggers other tags that may themselves collect data. You will find information on this in the passages on the use of the corresponding services in this data protection declaration. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. For more information about the Google Tag Manager, please visit https://www.google.com/intl/de/tagmanager/faq.html and see Google's privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en

2. Purpose of data processing
The purpose of the processing of personal data lies in the collected and clear administration as well as an efficient integration of the services of third parties.

4. Duration of storage

Notice with regard to third country transfer for certain plugins / external services

Your personal data will also be transferred to the USA. There is no adequacy decision for the USA according to Art. 45 (3) GDPR. We would like to point out that data transfer without an adequacy decision entails certain risks, which we would like to inform you about below:
Intelligence services in the USA use certain online identifiers (such as the IP address or unique identification numbers) as a starting point for monitoring individuals. In particular, it cannot be ruled out that these intelligence services have already collected information about you, with the help of which the data transmitted here can be traced back to you.
Providers of electronic communications services headquartered in the U.S. are subject to monitoring by U.S. intelligence services pursuant to 50 U.S. Code § 1881a ("FISA 702"). Accordingly, providers of electronic communications services headquartered in the U.S. have an obligation to provide personally identifiable information to U.S. authorities pursuant to 50 U.S. Code § 1881a, with no possible recourse available to you. Even encryption of data at the electronic communications service provider's data centers may not provide adequate protection because, with respect to imported data in its possession or custody or under its control, an electronic communications service provider has a direct obligation to provide access to or surrender such data. This obligation may explicitly extend to the cryptographic keys without which the data cannot be read.
The fact that this is not merely a "theoretical risk" is demonstrated by the ECJ ruling of July 16, 2020 (Case C 311/18, ,,Schrems-II").
With Google, we have concluded guarantees in the form of standard data protection clauses pursuant to Art. 46 (2) lit. c GDPR.
