Storage of the IP address

We store the IP address transmitted by your web browser for a strictly limited period of seven (7) days in the interest of detecting, limiting and eliminating attacks on our website. Once this period has expired, we delete or anonymize the IP address. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR.

 

Usage Data

When you visit our website, so-called usage data is being stored temporarily on our web server for statistical purposes as a protocol in order to improve the quality of our website. This record consists of

  • the page, from which the file has been requested,
  • the name of the file,
  • the date and time of the query,
  • the amount of data transferred,
  • the access status (file transmitted, file not found),
  • a description of the type of browser being used,
  • the IP address of the requesting computer, which is shortened in such a way that no reidentification of any persona data is possible.

The mentioned usage data will only be stored anonymously.

 

Processors

We transfer your data within an order of processing in accordance to Art. 28 GDPR to service providers, which support us in operating our website and the associated processes. Our service providers are strictly bound by instructions and contractually bound to us. We use the following service providers: Plan@ – Luruper Hauptstra├če 50a – 22547 Hamburg.

We sometimes transfer personal data to a third country outside the EU. In each case, we have taken care to ensure an appropriate level of data protection:

In the case of Google Analytics (USA), an appropriate level of data protection follows from the corresponding participation in the Privacy Shield Agreement (Art. 45 para. 1 GDPR).

 

Cookies

We use cookies on our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored and read in your end device. A distinction is made between session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and permanent cookies, which are stored beyond the individual session. Cookies may contain data that make it possible to recognize the device being used. However, in some cases cookies only contain information on certain settings which are not personal data.

We use both permanent and session cookies on our website. The data is processed in accordance to Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR and in the interest of optimizing or providing user guidance and improving the presentation of our website.

Please be aware that you can set your browser to inform you when cookies are being stored or used on the website you are visiting. Thus, any use of cookies is transparent to you. You also have the options to delete cookies at any time via the corresponding browser configuration and to prevent any usage of new cookies. In case you refuse the usage of cookies, please note that our website may not be displayed optimally and some functions are then no longer available.

 

Contact Form

When you use the contact form the personal data you provide is stored as long as needed to reply to your message and will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose of your request.

 

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics to create pseudonymous user profiles for improving and designing our website on demand. Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files placed on your end device and can be read by us. In this way, we are able to recognize and count returning visitors. This data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR.

The information generated by the cookies about your usage of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google Inc. on their servers in the United States. We have activated IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be truncated within the area of member states of the European Union. Only in exceptional cases the whole IP address is being transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there (an adequate level of data protection is ensured according to Art. 45 para. 1 GDPR because Google Inc. is a participant in the Privacy Shield Agreement). We have also concluded a contract with Google Inc. (USA) for order processing in accordance to Art. 28 GDPR. Google will therefore solely use collected data for the purposes intended, which are to evaluate the use of the website and to compile reports on website activities.

You can withdraw your consent to the processing at any time. Please use one of the following options:

You may refuse the usage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you proceed accordingly you may not be able to benefit from the full functionality of this website.

As an alternative to opting-out from being tracked by Google Analytics, you can also click the following link.

An opt-out cookie will be stored, which means that no web analysis will take place as long as the opt-out cookie is stored by your browser. To withdraw your consent to the processing of your data by Google Analytics click here: opt-out

 

Data security

In order to protect your data from unwanted access as comprehensively as possible, we take technical and organizational measures. We use an encryption procedure on our pages. Your data is transferred from your computer to our server and vice versa via the internet using TLS encryption. You can recognize this by the fact that the lock symbol in the status bar of your browser is closed and the address line begins with https://.

 

Your rights as a user

When processing your personal data, the GDPR grants you certain rights:

  1. Right of information (Art. 15 GDPR):

You have the right to request confirmation as to whether personal data relating to you are being processed; if this is the case, you have the right to access this personal data and the information specified in Art. 15 GDPR.

 

  1. Right of correction and deletion (Art. 16 and 17 GDPR):

You have the right to demand the immediate correction of incorrect personal data concerning you and, if necessary, the completion of incomplete personal data.

You also have the right to demand that personal data relating to you will be deleted immediately, if one of the reasons listed in Art. 17 GDPR applies, e.g. if the data is no longer required for the purposes pursued.

 

  1. Right of limiting the processing (Art. 18 GDPR):

You have the right to demand the restriction of the processing, if one of the conditions listed in Art. 18 GDPR are met, e.g. if you have lodged a complaint against the processing pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR or for the duration of any examination as to whether our legitimate interests outweigh your interests as a data subject.

 

  1. Right to data transferability (Art. 20 GDPR):

In certain cases, which are listed in detail in Art. 20 GDPR, you have the right to receive the personal data concerning you in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request the transfer of this data to a third party.

 

  1. Right of objection (Art. 21 GDPR): 

If data is collected on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR (data processing for the protection of legitimate interests) or on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. e GDPR (data processing for the protection of public interest or in exercise of official authority), you have the right to object to the processing at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. We will then no longer process the personal data unless there are compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing, which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

 

  1. Right of appeal to a supervisory authority

According to Art. 77 GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you are of the opinion that the processing of the data concerning you violates data protection regulations. The right of appeal may, in particular, be exercised with a supervisory authority in the member state of your residence, at your place of work or at the place where the alleged infringement has been committed.
