III. General Information about Data Processing
1. Scope of the Processing of Personal Data
As a matter of principle, we only collect and use personal data of users of our website, if this is necessary to provide a functional website, our contents and services.
2. 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 (1) (a) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data. Should we process personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations which 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 (1) (c) GDPR serves as the legal basis. In case the processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or those of a third party, and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the aforementioned interest, Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.
3. Data Erasure and Storage Time
The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data, for instance, for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.
IV. Provision of the Website and Creation of Log Files
Every time you visit our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer. In this process, the following data are collected:
(1) Information about the browser type and the version used
(2) The operating system of the user
(3) The IP address of the user
(4) Date and time of access
(5) Websites from which the user's system is brought to our website
(6) Websites accessed by the user's system via our website.
The data is also stored in the log files of our system. Such data are not stored together with other personal data of the user. The legal basis for the storage of data and log files is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the delivery of the website to the user's computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.
The data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data serve us to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. Our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR lies in these purposes. In doing so, we do not evaluate the data for marketing purposes.
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. If we collect the data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Further storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. As a consequence, the user has no right of objection in this regard.
In order to make your visit to our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on various pages. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your terminal. Some of the cookies we use are deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing your browser (so-called transient cookies). Other cookies remain on the terminal and enable us or our partner companies to recognize your browser when you revisit our website (persistent cookies).
Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. These include, in particular the so-called session cookies. Session cookies store a session ID by means of which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the shared session. This allows your computer to be recognized when you return to our website. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or close your browser.
Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period, which differs depending on the cookie. You can delete cookies at any time in the security settings of your browser. The legal basis for the processing of personal data by means of cookies is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

IX. Google reCAPTCHA
To ensure data security during the transmission of data, we use the service reCAPTCHA provided by the company Google LLC/Alphabet Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). This allows us to check whether data has been entered by a natural person or by automated processing. The legal basis for the use of reCAPTCHA is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Data security constitutes our legitimate interest. Google reCAPTCHA requires the transmission of the user's IP address and the time spent on the website to Google, and, as the case may be, other data required by Google for the provision of the reCAPTCHA service. For this service, other data protection regulations of Google LLC/Alphabet Inc. apply, which you can find here.

The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with any other Google data.

XI. Use of Google Adwords Conversion
We use the offer provided by Google Adwords to draw attention to our attractive offers by means of advertising materials (so-called Google Adwords) placed on external websites. In relation to the data of the advertising campaigns, we can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are. We are interested in showing you advertisements which are of interest to you, to make our website more interesting for you, and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs. These advertising media are delivered by Google via so-called "Ad Servers". For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, by means of which certain parameters for the measurement of success, such as the insertion of ads or clicks by users, can be measured. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Adwords stores a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually expire after 30 days and are not intended to identify you in person. In general, the unique cookie ID, the number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), the last impression (relevant for post-view conversions), and opt-out information (indication that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values for this cookie.
These cookies enable Google to recognize your Internet browser. In case a user visits certain pages of an Adwords customer's website and the cookie stored on his/her computer has not expired, Google and the customer are able to recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. A different cookie is assigned to each Adwords customer. Therefore, cookies cannot be traced via the websites of Adwords customers. We do not collect and process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. On the basis of these evaluations, we are able to recognize which of the used advertising measures are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of advertising material; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information.
Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server. We have no influence on the extent and the further use of the data which are collected in the course of the use of this tool by Google; therefore, we would like to inform you according to our knowledge: By means of the integration of AdWords conversion, Google receives the information that you called the respective part of our Internet appearance or clicked on one of our advertisements. If you are registered with a Google service, Google may associate your visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider may obtain and store your IP address.
You can prevent your participation in this tracking process in various ways: a) by setting your browser software accordingly, in particular, if you suppress third-party cookies, you will not receive any ads from third-party providers; b) by deactivating cookies for conversion tracking; in order to do so, you need to set your browser so that cookies are blocked by the domain "www.googleadservices.com", https://www.google.de/settings/ads; whereas this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies; c) by deactivating the interest-based ads of the providers, which are part of the "about ads" self-regulation campaign, via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices; whereas this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies; d) by permanently deactivating them in your browsers Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome by means of the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. Please note that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this offer to their full extent.
Legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 (1) 1st sentence (b) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the marketing of our offers and services.

In addition, the data specified under item IV. of this data protection declaration will be transmitted. This takes place regardless of whether or not Google provides a user account that you are logged in to. If you are logged in to Google, your information will be directly associated with your account. If you do not wish to be associated with your profile on Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as user profile and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research, and/or demand-oriented design of its website. This constitutes the legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR which serves as the legal basis for the evaluation. In particular, such evaluation is carried out (even for users not logged in to Google) to provide demand-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereas you must contact Google to exercise this right.
Google also processes your personal data in the USA and has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield.
