Security and protection of your personal data
We consider it our primary task to protect the confidentiality of the personal data you provide and to protect it from unauthorised access.
As a company under private law, we are subject to the provisions of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the provisions of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). We have taken technical and organisational measures to ensure that both we and our external service providers comply with data protection regulations.
The legislator requires that personal data be processed lawfully, fairly and in a manner that is comprehensible to the data subject ("lawfulness, fairness and transparency"). To ensure this, we inform you about the individual legal definitions that are also used in this data protection notice:
1. personal data
"Personal data" means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "data subject"); 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.
"Processing" means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
3. restriction of processing
"Restriction of processing" is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of restricting its future processing.
"Profiling" means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.
"Pseudonymisation" means the processing of personal data in such a manner 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 separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
6 File system
"filing system" means any structured set of personal data which are accessible according to specific criteria, whether centralised, decentralised or dispersed on a functional or geographical basis
"Controller" means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data.
"Processor" means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
"Recipient" means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular enquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.
10. third party
"Third party" means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.
Consent" of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
Lawfulness of the processing
The processing of personal data is only lawful if there is a legal basis for the processing. The legal basis for processing may be, in particular, pursuant to Article 6 (1) (a) - (f) GDPR:
The data subject has given consent to the processing of their personal data for one or more specific purposes;
processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract
processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject
processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person
processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller
processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child.
Information on the collection of personal data
In the following, we provide information about the collection of personal data when using our website. Personal data are e.g. name, address, e-mail addresses, user behaviour.
Collection of personal data when visiting our website
When using the website for information purposes only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. If you wish to view our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to display our website to you and to ensure stability and security:
- IP address
- Date and time of the enquiry
- Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
- Content of the request (specific page)
- Access status/HTTP status code
- Amount of data transferred in each case
- Website from which the request originates
- Operating system and its interface
- Language and version of the browser software
After a technical evaluation, this data is deleted immediately. This data collection serves to safeguard our legitimate interests in the correct presentation of our website offer, which predominate in the context of a balancing of interests, as well as compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation in terms of security and confidentiality in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.
Cookie consent tool
We use the cookie consent tool Cookiebot from the provider Usercentrics to obtain effective user consent for cookies and cookie-based applications that require consent.
By integrating this consent tool, users are shown a banner when they access a page in which they can give their consent for certain cookies and/or cookie-based applications by ticking a box. The tool blocks the setting of all cookies requiring consent until the respective user gives their consent by ticking the relevant box. This ensures that such cookies are only set on your end device if you have given your consent. So that the cookie consent tool can clearly assign page views to individual users and individually record, log and store the consent settings you have made for a session duration, certain user information (including the IP address) is collected when our website is accessed by the cookie consent tool, transmitted to the server of the cookie consent tool provider and stored there. This data processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in legally compliant, user-specific and user-friendly consent management for cookies and thus in a legally compliant design of our website. Another legal basis for the data processing described is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) GDPR. As the controller, we are subject to the legal obligation to make the use of technically unnecessary cookies dependent on the respective user consent.
By using our website, information (e.g. IP address) may be accessed or information (e.g. cookies) may be stored in your end devices. This access or storage may involve further processing of personal data within the meaning of the GDPR.
In cases where such access to information or such storage of information is absolutely necessary for the technically error-free provision of our services, this is done on the basis of § 25 para. 1 sentence 1, para. 2 no. 2 TTDSG.
Telecommunications Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDSG)
The legal basis for the storage and retrieval of information in the end user's terminal equipment is consent in accordance with Section 25 (1) sentence 1 TTDSG. This consent is requested when the website is accessed.
According to Section 25 (2) No. 2 TTDSG, consent is not required if the storage of information in the end user's terminal equipment or access to information already stored in the end user's terminal equipment is absolutely necessary so that the provider of a telemedia service can provide a telemedia service expressly requested by the user. You can see from the cookie settings which cookies are to be classified as absolutely necessary (often also referred to as "technically necessary cookies") and therefore fall under the exemption rule of Section 25 (2) TTDSG and therefore do not require consent.
In addition to the aforementioned data, cookies or similar technologies such as pixels (hereinafter generally referred to as "cookies") are used on your computer when you use and visit our website. Cookies are either small databases that are stored by your browser on your end device to store certain information, or image files such as pixels. The next time you visit our website with the same end device, the information stored in cookies is subsequently sent back either to our website ("first party cookie") or to another website to which the cookie belongs ("third party cookie").
Through the stored and returned information, the respective website recognises that you have already accessed and visited it with the browser of your end device. We use this information to optimise the design and display of the website according to your preferences. Only the cookie itself is identified on your end device. Any further storage of personal data only takes place with your express consent or if this is absolutely necessary in order to be able to use the service offered and accessed by you accordingly.
This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and function of which are explained below:
- Strictly necessary cookies (type a)
- Functional and performance cookies (type b)
- Cookies requiring consent (type c)
Strictly necessary cookies (type a)
Strictly necessary cookies guarantee functions without which you cannot use our websites as intended. These cookies are used exclusively by us and are therefore first party cookies. This means that all information stored in the cookies is sent back to our website.
Strictly necessary cookies are used, for example, to ensure that you as a registered user always remain logged in when accessing various subpages of our website and therefore do not have to re-enter your login details each time you access a new page.
The use of strictly necessary cookies on our website is possible without your consent. For this reason, strictly necessary cookies cannot be deactivated or activated individually. However, you have the option of generally deactivating cookies in your browser at any time (see below).
Functional and performance cookies (type b)
Functional cookies enable our website to save information already entered (such as registered name or language selection) and to offer you improved and more personalised functions based on this. These cookies only collect and store anonymised information so that they cannot track your movements on other websites.
Performance cookies collect information about how our websites are used in order to improve their attractiveness, content and functionality. These cookies help us, for example, to determine whether and which subpages of our website are visited and what content users are particularly interested in. In particular, we record the number of visits to a page, the number of subpages accessed, the time spent on our website, the order of the pages visited, which search terms led you to us, the country, region and, if applicable, the city from which the access is made, as well as the proportion of mobile devices that access our websites. We also record movements, "clicks" and scrolling with the computer mouse in order to understand which areas of our website are of particular interest to users. As a result, we can tailor the content of our website more specifically to the needs of our users and optimise our offering. The IP address of your computer transmitted for technical reasons is automatically anonymised and does not allow us to draw any conclusions about the individual user.
You can object to the use of functional and performance cookies at any time by adjusting your cookie settings accordingly.
Legal basis: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR
Cookies requiring consent (type c)
Cookies that are neither absolutely necessary (type a) nor functional or performance cookies (type b) are only used after you have given your consent.
We also reserve the right to use information that we have obtained by means of cookies from an anonymised analysis of the usage behaviour of visitors to our websites in order to display specific advertising for certain of our products on our own websites. We believe that you as a user benefit from this because we display advertising or content that we assume, based on your surfing behaviour, matches your interests and you are therefore shown less random advertising or certain content that may be of less interest to you.
Marketing cookies originate from external advertising companies (third-party cookies) and are used to collect information about the websites visited by the user in order to create targeted advertising for the user.
Legal basis: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR
Opt-out for marketing cookies
You can also manage cookies used for online advertising via the tools developed in many countries as part of self-regulatory programmes, such as the US-based https://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU-based http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices.
Legal basis: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR
Management and deletion of all cookies
In addition, you can set your Internet browser to generally prevent cookies from being stored on your end device or to ask you each time whether you agree to the setting of cookies. Once cookies have been set, you can also delete them at any time. You can find out how all this works in detail in the help function of your browser.
The cookies and third-party requests described above are placed on your device by the following services through our website
We use a content delivery network (CDN) from Cloudflare, Inc, 101 Townsend Street, San Francisco, California 94107, USA ("Cloudflare") to integrate scripts and libraries on our website. With a content delivery network, the content of our website is stored on the server of the service, which distributes this content to you or your browser via a network of regional servers when the website is accessed. The purpose of this is to better ward off attacks, such as DDoS attacks, on our website and, in the case of large script and data volumes, to make the content of our pages available to you quickly and in an optimised manner.
Since the data traffic of our website runs via Cloudflare servers, your IP address is also transmitted to Cloudflare. The provider has signed the standard contractual clauses of the prevailing EU data protection regulations:
Legal basis: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR
Google Analytics 4 (GA4)
This website uses Google Analytics 4, a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google"), which can be used to analyse the use of websites.
When using Google Analytics 4, so-called "cookies" are used. Cookies are databases that are stored on your end device and enable your use of a website to be analysed. The information collected by cookies about your use of the website (including the IP address transmitted by your device, shortened by the last digits, see below) is usually transmitted to a Google server, where it is stored and processed. This may also result in information being transmitted to the servers of Google LLC, based in the USA, where it is processed further. GA4 also offers server-side tracking, which enables us to pseudonymise user data on our own server and only then transmit it to Google.
When using Google Analytics 4, the IP address transmitted by your end device when using the website is automatically collected and processed only in a pseudonymised manner, so that the information collected cannot be directly linked to a person. This automatic pseudonymisation takes place by Google truncating the IP address transmitted by your device within member states of the European Union (EU) or other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA).
Google uses this and other information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on your website activities and usage behaviour and to provide us with other services relating to your use of the website and the Internet. The abbreviated IP address transmitted by your device as part of Google Analytics 4 will not be merged with other Google data. The data collected as part of the use of Google Analytics 4 is stored for 2 months and then deleted.
Google Analytics 4 enables us to recognise the so-called "demographic characteristics" of a user via browser fingerprints. This enables us to analyse cross-device information about the age, gender and interests of website users on the basis of an analysis of interest-based advertising and with the help of third-party information. This makes it possible to determine and differentiate between user groups of the website for the purpose of target group-optimised marketing measures. However, data collected via the "demographic characteristics" cannot be assigned to a specific person and therefore not to you personally. This data collected via the "demographic characteristics" function is stored for two months and then deleted.
All processing described above, in particular the setting of Google Analytics cookies for the storage and reading of information on the end device you use to access the website, will only take place if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR. Without your consent, Google Analytics 4 will not be used during your use of the website. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your revocation, please deactivate this service using the "cookie consent tool" provided on the website.
We have concluded a so-called order processing contract with Google for our use of Google Analytics 4, which obliges Google to protect the data of our website users and not to pass it on to third parties.
The provider has certified itself for the Trans Atlantic Data Privacy Framework in order to ensure compliance with the European level of data protection even in the event of a data transfer from the EU or the EEA to the USA and possible further processing there. You can view the certification under the following link: https://www.dataprivacyframework.gov/s/participant-search
Further legal information on Google Analytics 4 can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de&gl=de and at https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites.
We have integrated videos from the provider YouTube, Google Ireland Limited Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland, into our online offering, which are stored on http://www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from our website. These are all integrated in "extended data protection mode", i.e. no data about you as a user is transferred to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Only when you play the videos will the data mentioned in the next paragraph be transmitted. We have no influence on this data transfer. The purpose of the processing is for marketing purposes.
When you visit the website, YouTube receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. This occurs regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not wish your data to be associated with your YouTube profile, you must log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or customising its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide customised advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.
The provider has been certified for the Trans-Atlantic Data Privacy Framework (TADPF, DPF for short) in order to guarantee the prevailing level of data protection in the EU. You can find detailed information at https://www.dataprivacyframework.gov/s/participant-search
Application and use of Vimeo
The provider for video hosting on Vimeo is: Vimeo Inc, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA. Videos can be played automatically when you access one of our pages. This establishes a connection to the Vimeo servers. The Vimeo server is informed which of our pages you have visited. Vimeo also obtains your IP address. This also applies if you are not logged in to Vimeo or do not have a Vimeo account. The information collected by Vimeo is transmitted to the Vimeo server in the USA. If you are logged into your Vimeo account, you enable Vimeo to assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your Vimeo account.
In order to establish an adequate level of security, your consent in accordance with Art. 49 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR can serve as the legal basis for the transfer to third countries.
To protect your rights and personal data, we have integrated Vimeo with a so-called two-click solution, which only transmits data to Vimeo after you have explicitly activated the video function.
The legal basis here is Art. 6 para. 1 lit.a) GDPR.
This website uses Google AdSense, a web advertising service Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google"). Google AdSense uses so-called cookies, i.e. databases that are stored on your computer and enable your use of the website to be analysed. In addition, Google AdSense also uses so-called "web beacons" (small invisible graphics) to collect information, through the use of which simple actions such as visitor traffic on the website can be recorded, collected and analysed. The information generated by the cookie and/or web beacon (including your IP address) about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server and stored there. This may also involve transmission to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.
Google uses the information obtained in this way to evaluate your usage behaviour with regard to the AdSense ads. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google AdSense will not be merged with other Google data. The information collected by Google may be transferred to third parties if this is required by law and/or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. In addition, the hashed and thus encrypted e-mail address of the user is transmitted to Google.
All processing described above, in particular the reading of information on the end device used via cookies and/or web beacons, will only be carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. Without this consent, Google AdSense will not be used during your visit to our website.
You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deactivating this service in the "cookie consent tool" provided on the website.
The provider has been certified for the Trans-Atlantic Data Privacy Framework (TADPF, DPF for short) in order to guarantee the prevailing level of data protection in the EU. You can find detailed information at https://www.dataprivacyframework.gov/s/participant-search
If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, the data you provide (your e-mail address, possibly your name and telephone number) will be stored by us in order to answer your questions. We delete the data collected in this context after storage is no longer necessary, e.g. when your enquiry has been dealt with. Otherwise, processing will be restricted if there are statutory retention obligations. If a contract is initiated as a result of contacting us, we process the data as described above.
The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) or b) GDPR.
This website uses Brevo software to send newsletters. The provider is Sendinblue GmbH, Köpenicker Str. 126, 10179 Berlin. The newsletter contains news, offers and other information about our company. By subscribing to the newsletter, you will receive personalised information about our products and services in accordance with your consent. We evaluate your purchase and click behaviour on our websites and within the newsletter in order to compile information that is relevant to you.
We use the so-called double opt-in procedure for the registration process. Once you have registered, you will receive an e-mail in which you must click on a link to confirm your registration. In this way, we prevent unauthorised third parties from registering using your e-mail address. We log the registration process in order to be able to prove the process in accordance with legal requirements. The IP address of the accessing end device, date and time of registration are stored. The data you provide will be stored for as long as the subscription to the newsletter is active.
The newsletter is usually sent out once a month ("regularly"). In individual cases (e.g. special promotions), weekly contact may also occur.
The data is forwarded to a customer management platform to which service providers may also have access to support and implement the newsletter. The service provider is located in a third country (countries outside the European Economic Area). So-called standard contractual clauses in accordance with Art. 46 GDPR have been concluded with this service provider as suitable guarantees or the provider has signed the standard contractual clauses of the prevailing EU data protection regulations (https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/publications/standard-contractual-clauses-controllers-and-processors).
This collected data is automatically deleted after 24 months if you no longer respond to the newsletter, e.g. open it (inactivity). If you no longer wish to receive the newsletter, you can cancel your subscription at any time and unsubscribe accordingly. To do this, click on the link contained in each newsletter, you will then be guided through the cancellation process, or send us your cancellation by e-mail.
Legal basis: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR
Duration of processing
We only process your data for as long as is necessary to fulfil our contract or applicable legal provisions and to maintain our relationship with you. We will inform you about the specific storage period of the data in the respective description of the individual data processing. If you do not find any specific information on the storage period there, it is not possible for us to specify one because it depends on various individual factors (e.g. the term of the contract, assertion of claims, etc.). In these cases, we base the duration of storage on the principle of data minimisation and proportionality.
Business documents are stored for a maximum of 6 and 10 years in accordance with the provisions of the German Commercial Code and the German Fiscal Code.
As long as you do not object or revoke your consent, we will use your data to maintain and intensify our trusting business relationship for our mutual benefit.
If you wish your data to be deleted, we will delete your data immediately, provided that there are no legal obligations to retain it.
The following social networks are integrated on our website
Facebook fan page
We have integrated a component of the Facebook service on our website, which is a link to our Facebook fan page. We use the technical platform of Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (hereinafter: Facebook) for the information service offered here.
According to the ECJ, there is joint responsibility within the meaning of Art. 26 GDPR between Facebook and the operator of a Facebook fan page for the personal data processed via the Facebook fan page. For this reason, we have concluded an agreement with Facebook on joint responsibility.
When you access a Facebook fan page, the IP address of your end device is transmitted to Facebook. According to Facebook, this IP address is anonymised and deleted after 90 days, at least if it is a German IP address. In addition, Facebook stores further information about the end devices of its users, e.g. the Internet browser used. This may enable Facebook to assign IP addresses to individual users. If you are logged into your Facebook account while visiting our fan page, a cookie with your Facebook ID will be stored on your device. This cookie enables Facebook to recognise that you have visited our fan page and how you have used it. Facebook uses this information to present you with customised content or advertising. If you do not want this, you should log out of your Facebook account or deactivate the "stay logged in" function. We also recommend deleting the cookies on your device and closing and restarting your browser. This process deletes Facebook information that Facebook can use to establish a link to you. However, if you wish to use the interactive functions of our fan page, you will have to log in to Facebook again using your Facebook login information. This also enables Facebook to establish a link to you again. Facebook does not conclusively and clearly state how it uses the data from visits to Facebook pages for its own purposes, to what extent activities on the Facebook page are assigned to individual users, how long Facebook stores this data and whether data from a visit to the Facebook page is passed on to third parties, and we are not aware of this. In this respect, we can only refer you as a user of our fan page to Facebook's information on data protection. The data collected about you in this context is processed by Facebook and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union.
What information Facebook receives and how it is used is described by Facebook in general terms in its data usage guidelines. There you will also find information on how to contact Facebook and the settings options for adverts. The data usage guidelines are available at the following link: http://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy. Objection options (so-called opt-out) can be set here: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads and here http://www.youronlinechoices.com
The provider has signed the standard contractual clauses of the prevailing EU data protection regulations (https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/publications/standard-contractual-clauses-controllers-and-processors
Facebook Insight function
As part of the so-called "Insights" function, Facebook offers the operators of fan pages a variety of statistical data. We use this data, which is available in aggregated form, to make posts and activities on the fan page more attractive to users, e.g. to plan the content and timing of posts.
Facebook provides more information on this at the following link: https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum .
If you no longer wish the data processing described here to take place in the future, please remove the link between your user profile and our fan page by using the "No longer like this page" and/or "No longer subscribe to this page" functions.
Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR serves as the legal basis
We maintain a page on the Instagram platform, which can be accessed via a link on our website. The provider of the platform is Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, Hanover Reach, 5-7 Hanover Quay, Dublin 2, Ireland.
When you visit our Instagram page, Instagram collects, among other things, your IP address and other information that is stored on your PC in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, as the operator of the Instagram pages, with statistical information about the use of the Instagram page.
Instagram does not conclusively and clearly state how Instagram uses the data from visits to Instagram pages for its own purposes, to what extent activities on the Instagram page are assigned to individual users, how long Instagram stores this data and whether data from a visit to the Instagram page is passed on to third parties, and we are not aware of this.
When you access an Instagram page, the IP address assigned to your device is transmitted to Instagram. According to Instagram, this IP address is anonymised (for "German" IP addresses) and deleted after 90 days. Instagram also stores information about the end devices of its users (for example, as part of the "login notification" function); Instagram may thus be able to assign IP addresses to individual users.
If you are currently logged in to Instagram as a user, a cookie with your Instagram ID is stored on your device. This enables Instagram to understand that you have visited this page and how you have used it. This also applies to all other Instagram pages.
As the provider of the information service, we do not collect and process any other data
no data from your use of our service.
Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
X (formerly Twitter)
We have integrated a component of X on our website. X is a multilingual, publicly accessible microblogging service on which users can publish and disseminate so-called tweets, i.e. short messages limited to 280 characters. These short messages can be accessed by anyone, including people who are not registered with X. However, the tweets are also displayed to the so-called followers of the respective user. Followers are other X users who follow a user's tweets. X also enables a broad audience to be addressed via hashtags, links or retweets.
The operating company of X is X Corp, 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103 U.S.A. Twitter International Unlimited Company, One Cumberland Place, Fenian Street Dublin 2, D02 AX07 IRELAND is responsible for the processing of personal data for persons living in the EU/EEA.
With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which an X component (X button) was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to the download of a display of the corresponding X component of X. This occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on the X button or not. Further information about the X buttons can be found at https://about.twitter.com/de/resources/buttons. As part of this technical process, X receives information about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject. The purpose of integrating the X component is to enable our users to redistribute the content of this website, to publicise this website in the digital world and to increase our visitor numbers.
If the data subject is logged in at the same time on X, X recognises which specific sub-page of our website the data subject is visiting each time the data subject accesses our website and for the entire duration of their stay on our website. This information is collected by the X component and assigned by X to the respective X account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the X buttons integrated on our website, the data and information transmitted with it is assigned to the personal X user account of the data subject and stored and processed by X.
X always receives information via the X component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged in to X at the same time as accessing our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the X component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to X in this way, they can prevent the transmission by logging out of their X account before accessing our website.
Legal basis: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.
We have integrated a link to the LinkedIn portal on our website. The professional network "LinkedIn" is operated by LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland.
We maintain our own company page on LinkedIn. This serves as an active and up-to-date means of addressing potential employees in a professional environment. We also share information about our company on this page and present ourselves to the outside world in this way.
Together with LinkedIn, we are responsible for the operation of the site and therefore have a so-called "joint responsibility" towards the user. We have concluded a corresponding agreement with LinkedIn. This regulates the respective responsibilities for the fulfilment of the obligations pursuant to Art. 26 GDPR.
In this context, user data may be processed on systems outside the European Union. LinkedIn has undertaken to comply with the data protection requirements of the EU. Data is only transferred to systems outside the EU if the requirements of Art. 44 et seq. GDPR are complied with. You can find out more at: www.linkedin.com/help/linkedin/answer/62533.
For detailed information on the processing and use of data by us and by LinkedIn, as well as a contact option and your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy, please refer to LinkedIn's data protection information: https://de.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy?trk=hb_ft_priv
Legal basis: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.
Rights of the data subject
1. revocation of consent
If the processing of personal data is based on consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
2. right to information
If personal data is processed, you can request information about this personal data and the following information at any time:
(a) the purposes of the processing;
b) the categories of personal data being processed
c) the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries or international organisations
d) where possible, the envisaged period for which the personal data will be stored, or, if not possible, the criteria used to determine that period
e) the existence of a right to rectification or erasure of personal data concerning you or to restriction of processing by the controller or a right to object to such processing
f) the existence of a right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
g) where the personal data are not collected from the data subject, any available information as to their source
h) the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, referred to in Article 22(1) and (4) GDPR and, at least in those cases, meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and the envisaged consequences of such processing for the data subject.
i) If personal data are transferred to a third country or to an international organisation, you have the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Article 46 GDPR in connection with the transfer. We will provide you with a copy of the personal data that is the subject of the processing. We may charge a reasonable fee based on administrative costs for any further copies you request as an individual. If you make the request electronically, the information shall be provided in a commonly used electronic format, unless otherwise specified. The right to receive a copy in accordance with Article 20 must not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
3. right to rectification and completion
You have the right to obtain from us without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning you. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, you have the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.
4. right to erasure ("right to be forgotten")
You have the right to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning you without undue delay and we are obliged to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies:
(a) The personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
b) The data subject withdraws consent on which the processing is based according to point (a) of Article 6(1), or point (a) of Article 9(2) GDPR, and where there is no other legal ground for the processing.
c) The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) GDPR.
d) The personal data have been processed unlawfully.
e) The deletion of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject.
Where the controller has made the personal data public and is obliged pursuant to paragraph 1 to erase the personal data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform controllers which are processing the personal data that the data subject has requested the erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data.
The right to erasure ("right to be forgotten") does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary
For exercising the right of freedom of expression and information;
for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller
for reasons of public interest in the area of public health in accordance with Article 9(2)(h) and (i) and Article 9(3) GDPR
for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89(1) GDPR in so far as the right referred to in paragraph 1 is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing; or
for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
5. right to restriction of processing
You have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data if one of the following conditions is met:
(a) the accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
b) the processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests the restriction of their use instead
c) the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; or
d) the data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.
Where processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, such personal data shall, with the exception of storage, only be processed with the data subject's consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.
6. right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and you have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, where
(a) the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a) or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) GDPR; and
b) the processing is carried out by automated means.
When exercising the right to data portability pursuant to para. 1, you have the right to obtain that the personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. The exercise of the right to data portability does not affect the right to erasure ("right to be forgotten"). This right does not apply to processing that is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
7. right to object
You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning you which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions. The controller shall no longer process the personal data unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
Where personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.
In the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you may exercise your right to object by automated means using technical specifications.
You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1), unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.
You can exercise your right to object at any time by contacting the respective controller.
8. right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement if the data subject considers that the processing of personal data relating to him or her infringes this Regulation. A list of the supervisory authorities can be found at: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Service/Anschriften/anschriften_table.html
9. right to an effective judicial remedy
Without prejudice to any available administrative or extrajudicial remedy, including the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority pursuant to Article 77 GDPR, you have the right to an effective judicial remedy if you consider that your rights under this Regulation have been infringed as a result of the processing of your personal data in non-compliance with this Regulation.
