II. Scope of Personal Data Processing

Basically, we only process personal data of our users if this is necessary to provide a website as well as our contents and services. The processing of our users' personal data is either permitted by law or only with the user's consent.

III. Legal Basis for the Processing of Personal Data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis. In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art.  6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing. 

IV. Erasure of Data and Duration of Storage

The personal data of the data subject will be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Data may be stored for a longer period if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the data controller is subject.

V. Rights of the Data Subject

If your personal data is processed, you are a data subject within the meaning of the GDPR and you have the following rights vis-à-vis the data controller:

1. Right of Access

You can ask the data controller to confirm whether personal data concerning you will be processed by us. If such processing has taken place, you can request the following information from the data controller:

(1)    the purposes for which the personal data is processed;
(2)    the categories of personal data processed;
(3)    the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been or are still being disclosed;
(4)    the planned duration of the storage of the personal data concerning you or, if specific information on this is not possible, criteria for determining the duration of storage;

(6)    the existence of a right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority;
(7)    any available information as to the source of data if the personal data is not collected from the data subject;
(8)    the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling in accordance with Art.  22(1) and (4) GDPR and - at least in these cases - meaningful information on the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject.

You have the right to request information as to whether the personal data concerning you is transferred to a third country or to an international organization. In this context, you may request to be informed of the appropriate guarantees pursuant to Art. 46 GDPR in connection with the transmission.

2. Right to Rectification

You have a right of rectification and/or completion vis-à-vis the data controller if the personal data processed concerning you is incorrect or incomplete. The data controller shall make the correction without delay.

3. Right to Restriction of Processing

Under the following conditions, you may request that the processing of personal data concerning you be restricted:

(1)    if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period of time that enables the data controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
(2)    if the processing is unlawful and you refuse to erase the personal data and instead request that the use of the personal data be restricted;
(3)    if the data controller no longer needs the personal data for data processing purposes, but you do need them to establish, exercise or defend legal claims, or
(4)    if you have filed an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR and it has not yet been determined whether the legitimate reasons of the data controller outweigh your reasons.

If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data may only be processed - apart from being stored - with your consent or for the purpose of establishing, exercising or defending rights or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on grounds of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State.

If processing has been restricted according to the above-mentioned conditions, you will be informed by the data controller before the restriction is lifted.

4. Right to Erasure

a)    Deletion Duty
You may request the data controller to erase the personal data relating to you without delay and the data controller is obliged to erase this data without delay if one of the following reasons applies:

(1)    The personal data concerning you is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
(2)    You revoke your consent, on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR, and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
(3)    You file an objection against the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or you file an objection against the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 2 GDPR.
(4)    The personal data concerning you have been processed unlawfully.
(5)    The deletion of personal data concerning you is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the data controller is subject.
(6)    The personal data concerning you have been collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Art. 8 para. 1 GDPR.

(b) Information to Third Parties
If the data controller has made your personal data public and is obliged to erase it pursuant to Art. 17 para. 1 GDPR, he/she shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform data controllers who process the personal data that you as the data subject have requested the deletion of all links to this personal data or of copies or replications of this personal data.

(c) Exceptions
The right to erasure does not exist insofar as processing is necessary

(1)    to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information;
(2)    for the performance of a legal obligation required for processing under the law of the Union or of the Member States to which the data controller is subject or for the performance of a task in public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the data controller;
(3)    for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to Art. 9 para. 2 lit. h and i and Art. 9 para. 3 GDPR;
(4)    for archiving purposes in public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 para. 1 GDPR, insofar as the law referred to under a) is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the attainment of the objectives of such processing, or
(5)    for establishing, exercising or defending legal claims.

5. Right to Data Portability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the data controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to pass this data on to another data controller without hindrance by the data controller to whom the personal data was provided, provided that

(1)    processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR and
(2)    processing is carried out using automated methods.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to request that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly from one data controller to another data controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.

The right to data portability shall not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task in public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the data controller.

6. Right of Objection

You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f of the GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The data controller no longer processes the personal data concerning you, unless he/she can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing, which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.

If the personal data concerning you is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of the personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing.

If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.

You have the possibility to exercise your right of objection in connection with the use of Information Society services by means of automated procedures using technical specifications, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.

7. Right to Revoke the Data Privacy Declaration of Consent

You have the right to revoke your Data Privacy Declaration of Consent at any time. The revocation of consent shall not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of consent until revocation.

8. Right to Lodge a Complaint with a Supervisory Authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State where you reside, work or suspect infringement, if you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you is contrary to the GDPR.

The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Art. 78 GDPR.

IX. Web analysis by Matomo (formerly PIWIK)

1. Scope of Processing Personal Data

On our website we use the open source software tool Matomo (formerly PIWIK) to analyze the surfing behavior of our users. The software places a cookie on the user's computer (see above for cookies). If individual pages of our website are accessed, the following data is stored:

(1)    Two bytes of the IP address of the user's calling system
(2)    The web page called up
(3)    The website from which the user has accessed the website called up (referrer)
(4)    The subpages that are accessed from the website called up
(5)    The time spent on the website
(6)    The frequency of visiting the website

Thereby, the software runs exclusively on the servers of our website. The personal data of users is only stored there. The data shall not be passed on to third parties.

The software is adjusted so that the IP addresses are not completely stored, but 2 bytes of the IP address are masked (e.g.: 192.168.xxx.xxx). In this way it is no longer possible to assign the shortened IP address to the calling computer.

2. Legal Basis for the Processing of Personal Data

The legal basis for processing users' personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest lies in the analysis of surfing behavior and further development of the services provided (see 3.).

3. The Purpose of Data Processing

The processing of users' personal data enables us to analyze the surfing behavior of our users. We are in a position to compile information about the use of the individual components of our website by evaluating the data obtained. This helps us to continuously improve our website and its user-friendliness. For these purposes, it is also in our legitimate interest to process the data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. By anonymizing the IP address, users' interest in protecting their personal data is sufficiently taken into account.

4. Duration of Storage

The anonymized data will be erased as soon as they are no longer needed for our recording purposes.

5. Possibility of Objection and Elimination

Cookies are stored on the user's computer and transmitted from there to our site. Therefore, you as a user have full control over the use of cookies. You can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies by changing the settings in your Internet browser. Cookies that have already been saved can be erased at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may no longer be possible to use all functions of the website in full.

We offer our users on our website the possibility of an opt-out from the analysis procedure. To do this, you must follow the corresponding link.

In this way, another cookie is placed on your system, which signals to our system not to store the user's data. If the user erases the corresponding cookie from his own system in the meantime, he must set the opt-out cookie again.More information about the privacy settings of the Matomo software can be found under the following link: https://matomo.org/docs/privacy/.
