Without such provision, we will not be able to comply with your data subject rights.

4.4 Web tracking  

The website includes services that optimize the user experience and measure the reach of the website. For this purpose, your access data is recorded in accordance with section 2 and usage behavior is evaluated with the aid of cookies in accordance with section 3. Personal identification is generally not required for web tracking. The IP address contained in your access data is either not used or only used in abbreviated form, and thus only pseudonymous usage profiles are created. As a matter of principle, these are not merged with other data and you have the option of revoking this at any time. Personal usage profiles are only created in exceptional cases and if you have given your consent.  

The web tracking services are regularly provided by service providers who process the usage profiles according to our instructions and not for their own purposes. This is ensured by means of contracts for order processing. If the service providers are established outside the European Union or the European Economic Area (hereinafter referred to as "EU / EEA"), a so-called third country transfer takes place. This is permissible if you have consented to it, we have created a guarantee for a level of data protection appropriate to the European standard or the EU Commission has classified the respective third country as a safe third country. The third country transfer of the respective service is marked below. Further information on the recipients of your data and the third country transfer can be found in section 6 and section 7. 

 

4.4.1 Google Analytics  

The website uses the Google Analytics service. The provider of Google Analytics is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter referred to as "Google"). Google Analytics creates a pseudonymous usage profile in order to optimize the user-friendliness of the website. The pseudonymity is ensured by the fact that before your data is transmitted to Google, the IP address is shortened and it is not possible to draw conclusions about your person. The pseudonymous usage profile is evaluated after transmission for the purpose of optimizing user-friendliness. A combination with other data from Google does not take place. By means of an order processing contract, we ensure that Google only processes the data according to our instructions.  

You can find more information on data processing at Google Analytics in Google's privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de. 

 

5. Who receives my data?  

We provide access to your data to those departments that need it to fulfill the purposes outlined in section 4. Service providers employed by us may also receive access to your data (so-called "order processors"). Contracts for order processing ensure that these service providers are bound by instructions, data security and confidential handling of your data. 

 

6. Is my data processed in a third country?  

Insofar as the service providers and / or third parties mentioned in section 4 and section 5 are established outside the EU / EEA, this may result in your data being transferred to a country where no level of data protection appropriate to the EU / EEA can be guaranteed. However, such a level of data protection can be ensured with an appropriate guarantee. Standard contractual clauses provided by the EU Commission can be considered as an appropriate guarantee. Any guarantees may be waived by way of exception if you consent or the third country transfer is necessary for the fulfillment of our contractual relationship. The EU Commission has also recognized certain third countries as safe third countries, so that appropriate guarantees on the part of the company can also be waived at this point.  

Through the use of Google services in web tracking and online advertising, a third country transfer takes place. In principle, Google stores the data within the EU. Only in exceptional cases, for example due to technical maintenance, can Google access the data from the USA. 

 

7. What data protection rights do I have?  

  

You have the right to obtain information about the personal data we have stored about you at any time. If data about your person is incorrect or no longer up to date, you have the right to request that it be corrected. You also have the right to request the deletion or restriction of the processing of your data in accordance with Art. 17 or Art. 18 DSGVO. You may furthermore have the right to have the data you have provided handed over to you in a common and machine-readable format (so-called "right to data portability").  

If you have given your consent to the processing of personal data for certain purposes, you may revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future. The revocation is to be addressed to the company at the contact address mentioned under item 1.  

In accordance with Art. 21 DSGVO, the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of your data carried out on the legal basis of Art. 6 (1) f DSGVO. You also have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing.
