4. definitions
The data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European Directive and Ordinance when adopting the General Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO). Our privacy policy should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terminology used in advance.
We use the following terms, among others, in this Privacy Policy:

a. Personal data
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

b. Person concerned
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller (our company).

c. Processing
Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organization, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

d. Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.

e. Profiling
Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data that consists of using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects relating to that natural person’s job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or change of location.

f. Pseudonymization
Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

g. Processor
Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the Controller.

h. Receiver
Recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom Personal Data is disclosed, whether or not a third party. However, authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation mandate under Union or Member State law are not considered recipients.

i. Third
Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorized to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.

j. Consent
Consent is any expression of will in the form of a declaration or other unambiguous affirmative action made voluntarily by the data subject in an informed and unambiguous manner for the specific case, by which the data subject indicates that he or she consents to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

5. legal basis of the processing
Art. 6 par. 1 lit. a DS-GVO (in conjunction with Section 15 (3) TMG) serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.
If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for a delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services.
If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which a processing of personal data is required, such as for compliance with tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR.
In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d DS-GVO are based.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO are based. Processing operations not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if you are a customer of our company (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).

6. transmission of data to third parties
Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those listed below.
We will only share your personal information with third parties if:
1). You have provided us with your personal data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO have given express consent to this,
2). the disclosure according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO to protect our legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in the non-disclosure of your data,
3). in the event that for the transfer according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. c DS-GVO a legal obligation exists, as well as
4). this is legally permissible and in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DS-GVO is necessary for the processing of contractual relationships with you.
In order to protect your data and to allow us to transfer data to third countries (outside the EU/EEA)if necessary, we have concluded commissioned processing agreements based on the European Commission’s standard contractual clauses.

7.1 SSL/TLS encryption
To ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login data or contact requests that you send to us as the operator, this site uses an SSL or SSL protocol. TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that there is a “https://” instead of a “http://” in the address line of the browser and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
We use this technology to protect your transmitted data.

4). the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
5). the date and time of an access to the website,
6). a shortened Internet Protocol address (anonymized IP address),
7). the Internet service provider of the accessing system.
When using this general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about your person. Rather, this information is needed to

2). to optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it,
3). to ensure the long-term operability of our IT systems and the technology of our website, and
4). to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyberattack.
Therefore, the data and information collected will be used for statistical purposes only and with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise so as to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.
The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the data collection purposes listed above.

We are not the original provider of these pages, but only use them within the scope of the possibilities offered to us by the respective providers.
Therefore, as a precaution, we point out that your data may also be processed outside the European Union or the European Economic Area. Use may therefore pose data protection risks for you, as it may be more difficult to protect your rights, e.g. to information, deletion, objection, etc., and processing in the social networks is often carried out directly for advertising purposes or for the analysis of user behavior by the providers, without this being able to be influenced by us. If usage profiles are created by the provider, cookies are often used or the usage behavior is directly assigned to your own member profile of the social networks (if you are logged in here).
The described processing operations of personal data are carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO on the basis of our legitimate interest and the legitimate interest of the respective provider in order to be able to communicate with you in a timely manner or to inform you about our services. If you have to give your consent to data processing as a user with the respective providers, the legal basis refers to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO in conjunction with. Art. 7 DS-GVO.
As we do not have access to the providers’ databases, we would like to point out that it is best to assert your rights (e.g. to information, correction, deletion, etc.) directly with the respective provider.

13.2 Google Analytics Remarketing
We have integrated Google Remarketing services on this website. Google Remarketing is a function of Google AdWords that enables a company to display advertisements to Internet users who have previously visited the company’s website. The integration of Google Remarketing thus allows a company to create user-related advertising and consequently to display interest-relevant advertisements to the Internet user.
The operating company of the Google Remarketing services is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
The purpose of Google Remarketing is the display of interest-relevant advertising. Google Remarketing enables us to display advertisements via the Google advertising network or to have them displayed on other websites, which are tailored to the individual needs and interests of Internet users.
Google Remarketing sets a cookie on your IT system of the data subject. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to recognize the visitor to our website when he or she subsequently visits websites that are also members of the Google advertising network. Each time you visit a website on which the Google Remarketing service has been integrated, your internet browser automatically identifies itself to Google. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as your IP address or surfing behavior, which Google uses, among other things, to display interest-relevant advertising.
By means of the cookie, personal information, for example, the Internet pages visited by you, is stored. Each time you visit our website, personal data, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may share this personal data collected through the technical process with third parties.
You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on your IT system.

14.1 Google Ads (formerly AdWords)
Our website uses the functions of Google Ads, hereby we advertise this website in Google search results, as well as on third-party websites. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). For this purpose, Google sets a cookie in the browser of your terminal device, which automatically enables interest-based advertising by means of a pseudonymous cookie ID and on the basis of the pages you visit.

14.2 Google Ads with conversion tracking
We have integrated Google Ads on this website. Google Ads is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to place ads both in Google’s search engine results and in the Google advertising network. Google Ads allows an advertiser to specify certain keywords in advance, by means of which an ad is displayed in Google’s search engine results exclusively when the user retrieves a keyword-relevant search result using the search engine. In the Google advertising network, ads are distributed on topic-relevant websites by means of an automatic algorithm and in compliance with the previously defined keywords.
The operating company of the Google Ads services is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
The purpose of Google Ads is to advertise our website by displaying interest-relevant advertisements on the websites of third-party companies and in the search engine results of the Google search engine and to display third-party advertisements on our website.
If you access our website via a Google ad, a so-called conversion cookie is stored on your IT system by Google. A conversion cookie expires after thirty days and is not used to identify you. The conversion cookie is used to track whether certain subpages, for example the shopping cart of an online store system, have been called up on our website, provided that the cookie has not yet expired. The conversion cookie allows both us and Google to track whether a user who arrived on our website via an AdWords ad generated a sale, i.e. completed or cancelled a purchase.
The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie are used by Google to compile visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are in turn used by us to determine the total number of users who were referred to us via Ads ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective Ads ad and to optimize our Ads ads for the future. Neither our company nor other advertisers of Google Ads receive information from Google by means of which you could be identified.
By means of the conversion cookie, personal information, for example the web pages visited by you, is stored. Each time you visit our website, personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection you are using, is therefore transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may share this personal data collected through the technical process with third parties.
You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie on your IT system. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Ads can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
Furthermore, you have the option to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, you must call up the link www.google.de/settings/ads from the Internet browser you are using and make the desired settings there.
These processing operations are carried out exclusively upon the granting of explicit consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
Further information and the applicable Google privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

15. plugins and other services
15.1 Google Maps
On our website, we use Google Maps (API) from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive (land) maps to visually represent geographical information. By using this service, for example, our location can be shown to you and a possible journey can be made easier.
Already when calling up those sub-pages in which the map of Google Maps is integrated, information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) is transmitted to Google servers in the USA and stored there. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists.
