2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the person concerned for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a EU data protection basic regulation (DSGVO) as legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person make the processing of personal data necessary, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. d DSGVO as legal basis.

VII. Webanalyse

1. Scope of processing of personal data

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. („Google“). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the online offer by the user is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online services by users, to compile reports on activities within this online service and to provide us with other services associated with the use of this online service and the Internet. Pseudonymous user profiles of the users can be created from the processed data.

We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymization enabled. This means that the IP address of the user is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser is not merged with other Google data.

Users may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on their browser, however please note that if the opportunity for the input of personal or business data (email addresses, name, addresses) is given, the input of these data takes place voluntarily: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Further information on the use of data for advertising purposes by Google, setting and objection possibilities can be found on the websites of Google: https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners/

(“Google’s use of data when you use the websites or apps of our partners”), http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads (“Use of data for advertising purposes”), http://www.google.de/settings/ads (“Manage information Google uses to display advertisements to you”) and http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/ (“Determine what advertising Google displays to you”)

The software places a cookie on the user’s computer (for cookies, see above). If individual pages of our website are accessed, the following data is stored:

(1) Two bytes of the IP address of the calling system of the user
(2) The website accessed
(3) Die Website, von der der Nutzer auf die aufgerufene Webseite gelangt ist (Referrer)
(4) The subpages accessed from the accessed web page
(5) The time spent on the website
(6) The frequency of the website visit

The software runs exclusively on the servers of our website. A storage of the personal data of the users takes place only there. The data will not be passed on to third parties.

The software is set so that the IP addresses are not stored completely, 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 the processing of users’ personal data is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

3. Purpose of the data processing

The processing of users’ personal data enables us to analyse the surfing behaviour of our users. By evaluating the data collected, we are able to compile information about the use of the individual components of our website. This helps us to constantly improve our website and its usability. In these purposes also our justified interest lies in the processing of the data after art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO. By anonymizing the IP address, the interest of users in the protection of their personal data is sufficiently taken into account.

4. Duration of storage

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for our recording purposes. In our case this is the case after 6 months.

5. Possibility of opposition and removal

Cookies are stored on the user’s computer and transmitted to our site by the user. Therefore, you as a user also have full control over the use of cookies.

On our website we offer our users the possibility of an opt-out from the analysis procedure. For this you must follow the appropriate link. In this way, another cookie is placed on your system, which signals our system not to store the user’s data. If the user deletes the corresponding cookie from his own system in the meantime, he must set the opt-out cookie again.
