§ 3 Personal data we collect when you visit our website

(1) When you view our website simply to obtain information, without registering or providing us with further information in any other way, we only collect the personal data your browser transfers to our server. When you view our website we collect the following items of data, which for us to display our website to you are technically necessary and ensure its stability and security (legal basis is Article 6 (1) point (f) of the GDPR):

  • IP address
  • Date and time of the request
  • Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Contents of the request (particular page)
  • Access status/HTTP status code
  • Volume of data transmitted
  • Webpage the request was referred from
  • Browser
  • Operating system and web interface
  • Browser software language and version.

These items of data are only stored for one week and then automatically deleted, with the exception of the IP address. This we save for a month, in order to investigate in retrospect in cases of a cyber-attack whether our internal systems were compromised.

(2) In addition to the data previously mentioned, when using our website cookies will be stored on your device, provided you consented to this. Cookies are small text files that are stored in a folder on your hard drive assigned by the browser you used and in which certain information is gathered (in this case as determined by us). With cookies it is not possible to execute a program or plant a virus on your device. They simply serve to make our website generally more user friendly and effective.

(3) Use of cookies:

a) This website uses the following types of cookies, whose scope and functionality are explained in the following:

  • Transient cookies (see b)
  • Persistent Cookies (see c).

b) Transient cookies are deleted automatically when your browser is closed. In particular these include session cookies. These store what is known as a session ID and this enables a series of requests from your browser to be treated as a single session. This makes it possible to recognize your device as you continue to use our website. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or when you close your browser.

c) Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a predetermined expiry date, which is determined individually for each cookie. You can remove cookies at any time by using the security configuration options of your browser.

d) You can configure your browser settings as desired and, for example, refuse to accept third-party cookies or refuse any cookie. Please note that doing so could restrict your use of our website.

e) Flash cookies used are not recorded by your browser, but instead by your Flash plugin. We also use HTML5 storage objects, which are stored on your device. These objects store data independently to the browser you use and have no automatic expiry date. If you do not want to process Flash cookies it is necessary to install an appropriate add-on, e. g. “Cookiebro” for Mozilla Firefox (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/cookiebro/) or the “Adobe Flash Cookie Killer” for Google Chrome. You can prevent the use of HTML5 storage objects by opening our website in a private window in your browser. We recommend that you routinely delete cookies and browser history manually from time to time.

 

§ 4 Additional functions and facilities of our website

(1) As well as the pure informational use of our website we offer various services that you can use if you are interested. As a rule you these require you to enter further personal data that we use to provide the respective service and for which the aforementioned principles of data protection apply.

(2) In some cases we use external service providers for processing your data. These suppliers are carefully selected and contracted by us, they are bound by our instructions and are regularly checked.

(3) In addition we may forward your personal data to third parties when promotions, competitions, contract conclusions or similar services are offered by us jointly with partners. You will obtain further information about this where you enter your personal data or below the description of the offer.

(4) When our service providers or partners are based in a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA) we will inform you of the implications of this circumstance in the description of our offer.

  

§ 5 Refusal or withdrawal of your permission for processing your data

(1) If you have given your permission for us to process your data, you can withdraw it at any time. Such a withdrawal influences whether processing of your personal data is permissible once you have notified us.

(2) If we justify the processing of your personal data by weighing interests, you can refuse processing. This is particularly the case when processing is not required to fulfil a contract with you, which we outline along with a description of the function. When exercising such a refusal, we ask you to provide reasons why you do not wish us to process your personal data as we normally do. If your refusal is justified, we will review the current situation and either cease or adjust our data processing, or will provide you with compelling and legitimate grounds for our continuing to do so.

(3) You can of course object to processing of your personal data for purposes of advertising and data analysis at any time. You can inform us of any objections you have to advertising by writing an email to: v.wodianka@schlutius-privacy.de

 

§ 6 Use of Google Analytics

(1) This website, provided you give your consent, uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses what are known as “cookies”, which are text files that are saved on your device and permit analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is normally transferred to and saved on a Google server in the USA. If this website uses IP anonymization, your IP address is truncated in advance by Google within the Member States of the European Union or other signatories of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is a full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate use of the website, to summarize reports about website activity and to provide other services associated with the usage of the website and the internet for the website operator.

(2) The IP address transferred by the browser as a part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data by Google.

(3) You can prevent cookies being saved with the appropriate setting in your browser software; however, please note that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website. Furthermore, you can prevent Google collecting and processing the data related to your use of the website recorded by the cookie (incl. your IP address), by downloading and installing a browser plugin that is available using the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

(4) This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This forces IP addresses to be abbreviated before they are processed, preventing any personal attribution. Insofar as any data could be attributed to a person, such personal data is excluded and deleted immediately.

(5) We use Google Analytics in order to analyze the usage of our website and improve it regularly. The statistics we obtain help us to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as user. For the exceptional cases when items of personal data are sent to the USA, Google has signed up to the EU-US Privacy Shield, see https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. Legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Article 6 (1) point (f) of the GDPR.
