Privacy Policy



We are very delighted that you have shown interest in our enterprise. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of the Web Raider. The use of the Internet pages of the Web Raider is

possible without any indication of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of

personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent from the data subject.



The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance

with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the Web Raider. By means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and

purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.



As the controller, the Web Raider has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may not be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alternative means, e.g. by telephone.



1. Definitions


The data protection declaration of the Web Raider is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration

should be legible and understandable for the general public, as well as our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to first explain the terminology used.

In this data protection declaration, we use, inter alia, the following terms:



a)    Personal data


Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“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.


b) Data subject


Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.


c)    Processing


Processing is 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.


d)    Restriction of processing


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


e)    Profiling


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.


f)     Pseudonymisation


Pseudonymisation is 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.


g)    Controller or controller responsible for the processing


Controller or controller responsible for the processing is the 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; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.


h)    Processor


Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.


i)      Recipient

Recipient is 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 inquiry 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.


j)      Third party


Third party is 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.


k)    Consent


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.




2. Name and Address of the controller


Controller for the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), other data protection laws applicable in Member states of the European Union and other provisions related to data protection is:




Web Raider

Gertrudis Straße 12

45141 Essen

Germany

Phone: +4920151193984

Email: arrrrr@web-raider.com

Website: www.web-raider.com



3. Cookies


The Internet pages of the Web Raider use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.



Many Internet sites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which Internet pages and

servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited Internet sites and servers to differentiate the individual browser of the dats subject from other

Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.



Through the use of cookies, the Web Raider can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.



By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized with the user in mind. Cookies allow us, as previously mentioned, to recognize our website users. The purpose of this

recognition is to make it easier for users to utilize our website. The website user that uses cookies, e.g. does not have to enter access data each time the website is accessed, because this is taken over by the

website, and the cookie is thus stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in an online shop. The online store remembers the articles that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.



The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies.

Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting

of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.



4. Collection of general data and information


The website of the Web Raider collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log

files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and

information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.



When using these general data and information, the Web Raider does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website

correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law

enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, the Web Raider analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with

the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and 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 all personal data provided by a data subject.



5. Registration on our website


The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the controller with the indication of personal data. Which personal data are transmitted to the controller is determined by the respective input

mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller, and for his own purposes. The controller may request

transfer to one or more processors (e.g. a parcel service) that also uses personal data for an internal purpose which is attributable to the controller.



By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address—assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject—date, and time of the registration are also stored. The

storage of this data takes place against the background that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services, and, if necessary, to make it possible to investigate committed offenses. Insofar, the storage

of this data is necessary to secure the controller. This data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a statutory obligation to pass on the data, or if the transfer serves the aim of criminal prosecution.




The registration of the data subject, with the voluntary indication of personal data, is intended to enable the controller to offer the data subject contents or services that may only be offered to registered

users due to the nature of the matter in question. Registered persons are free to change the personal data specified during the registration at any time, or to have them completely deleted from the data stock of the controller.



The data controller shall, at any time, provide information upon request to each data subject as to what personal data are stored about the data subject. In addition, the data controller shall correct or

erase personal data at the request or indication of the data subject, insofar as there are no statutory storage obligations. The entirety of the controller’s employees are available to the data subject in this

respect as contact persons.


6. Subscription to our newsletters


On the website of the Web Raider, users are given the opportunity to

subscribe to our enterprise's newsletter. The input mask used for this

purpose determines what personal data are transmitted, as well as when

the newsletter is ordered from the controller.



The Web Raider informs its customers and business partners regularly

by means of a newsletter about enterprise offers. The enterprise's

newsletter may only be received by the data subject if (1) the data

subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject registers

for the newsletter shipping. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the

e-mail address registered by a data subject for the first time for

newsletter shipping, for legal reasons, in the double opt-in procedure.

This confirmation e-mail is used to prove whether the owner of the

e-mail address as the data subject is authorized to receive the

newsletter.




During the registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP

address of the computer system assigned by the Internet service provider

(ISP) and used by the data subject at the time of the registration, as

well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this

data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the

e-mail address of a data subject at a later date, and it therefore

serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller.



The personal data collected as part of a registration for the

newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. In addition,

subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-mail, as long as this

is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a

registration in question, as this could be the case in the event of

modifications to the newsletter offer, or in the event of a change in

technical circumstances. There will be no transfer of personal data

collected by the newsletter service to third parties. The subscription

to our newsletter may be terminated by the data subject at any time. The

consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has

given for shipping the newsletter, may be revoked at any time. For the

purpose of revocation of consent, a corresponding link is found in each

newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at

any time directly on the website of the controller, or to communicate

this to the controller in a different way.



7. Newsletter-Tracking


The newsletter of the Web Raider contains so-called tracking pixels. A

tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which

are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This

allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online

marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, the Web

Raider may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and

which links in the e-mail were called up by data subjects.



Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the

newsletters are stored and analyzed by the controller in order to

optimize the shipping of the newsletter, as well as to adapt the content

of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject.

These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Data

subjects are at any time entitled to revoke the respective separate

declaration of consent issued by means of the double-opt-in procedure.

After a revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the

controller. The Web Raider automatically regards a withdrawal from the

receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.



8. Contact possibility via the website


The website of the Web Raider contains information that enables a

quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct

communication with us, which also includes a general address of the

so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts

the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data

transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored. Such personal

data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data

controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the

data subject. There is no transfer of this personal data to third

parties.



9. Comments function in the blog on the website


The Web Raider offers users the possibility to leave individual

comments on individual blog contributions on a blog, which is on the

website of the controller. A blog is a web-based, publicly-accessible

portal, through which one or more people called bloggers or web-bloggers

may post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blogposts.

Blogposts may usually be commented by third parties.



If a data subject leaves a comment on the blog published on this

website, the comments made by the data subject are also stored and

published, as well as information on the date of the commentary and on

the user's (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject. In addition, the IP

address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) to the data

subject is also logged. This storage of the IP address takes place for

security reasons, and in case the data subject violates the rights of

third parties, or posts illegal content through a given comment. The

storage of these personal data is, therefore, in the own interest of the

data controller, so that he can exculpate in the event of an

infringement. This collected personal data will not be passed to third

parties, unless such a transfer is required by law or serves the aim of

the defense of the data controller.



10. Subscription to comments in the blog on the website



The comments made in the blog of the Web Raider may be subscribed to by

third parties. In particular, there is the possibility that a commenter

subscribes to the comments following his comments on a particular blog

post.



If a data subject decides to subscribe to the option, the controller

will send an automatic confirmation e-mail to check the double opt-in

procedure as to whether the owner of the specified e-mail address

decided in favor of this option. The option to subscribe to comments may

be terminated at any time.



11. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data


The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the

data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of

storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legislator or

other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller is

subject to.



If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period

prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator

expires, the personal data are routinely blocked or erased in accordance

with legal requirements.



12. Rights of the data subject


a) Right of confirmation


Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European

subject.


Furthermore, the data subject shall have a right to obtain

information as to whether personal data are transferred to a third

country or to an international organisation. Where this is the case, the

data subject shall have the right to be informed of the appropriate

safeguards relating to the transfer.



If a data subject wishes to avail himself of this right of access, he

or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.


c) Right to rectification


Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European

legislator to obtain from the controller without undue delay the

rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her. Taking

into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject shall have

the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by

means of providing a supplementary statement.



If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to rectification, he

or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.


d) Right to erasure (Right to be forgotten)


Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European

legislator to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data

concerning him or her without undue delay, and the controller shall have

the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of

the following grounds applies, as long as the processing is not

necessary:



The personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.

The data subject withdraws consent to which the processing is based

according to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, or point (a) of

Article 9(2) of the GDPR, and where there is no other legal ground for

the processing.

The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1)

of the GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the

processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to

Article 21(2) of the GDPR.

The personal data have been unlawfully processed.

The personal data must be erased for compliance with a legal

obligation in Union or Member State law to which the controller is

subject.

The personal data have been collected in relation to the offer of

information society services referred to in Article 8(1) of the GDPR.


If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a data subject

wishes to request the erasure of personal data stored by the Web Raider,

he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller. An

employee of Web Raider shall promptly ensure that the erasure request is

complied with immediately.



Where the controller has made personal data public and is obliged

pursuant to Article 17(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

other controllers processing the personal data that the data subject has

requested erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or

replication of, those personal data, as far as processing is not

required. An employees of the Web Raider will arrange the necessary

measures in individual cases.


e) Right of restriction of processing


Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European

legislator to obtain from the controller restriction of processing where

one of the following applies:



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.

The processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure

of the personal data and requests instead the restriction of their use

instead.

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.

The data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article

21(1) of the GDPR pending the verification whether the legitimate

grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.


If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject

wishes to request the restriction of the processing of personal data

stored by the Web Raider, he or she may at any time contact any employee

of the controller. The employee of the Web Raider will arrange the

restriction of the processing.


f) Right to data portability


Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European

legislator, to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which

was provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and

machine-readable format. He or she shall have the right to transmit

those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller

to which the personal data have been provided, as long as the processing

is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR

or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, or on a contract pursuant to

point (b) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, and the processing is carried out

by automated means, as long as the processing is not necessary for the

performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the

exercise of official authority vested in the controller.



Furthermore, in exercising his or her right to data portability

pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject shall have the

right to have personal data transmitted directly from one controller to

another, where technically feasible and when doing so does not adversely

affect the rights and freedoms of others.



In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact any employee of the Web Raider.




g) Right to object

This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.



The Web Raider shall no longer process the personal data in the event

of the objection, unless we can demonstrate 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.



If the Web Raider processes personal data for direct marketing

purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to

processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing.

This applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such

direct marketing. If the data subject objects to the Web Raider to the

processing for direct marketing purposes, the Web Raider will no longer

process the personal data for these purposes.



In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to

his or her particular situation, to object to processing of personal

data concerning him or her by the Web Raider for scientific or

historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to

Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless the processing is necessary for the

performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.



In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may

contact any employee of the Web Raider. In addition, the data subject is

free in the context of the use of information society services, and

notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to use his or her right to object

by automated means using technical specifications.


h) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling


Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European

legislator not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated

processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning

him or her, or similarly significantly affects him or her, as long as

the decision (1) is not is necessary for entering into, or the

performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data

controller, or (2) is not authorised by Union or Member State law to

which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable

measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and

legitimate interests, or (3) is not based on the data subject's explicit

consent.



If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the

performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data

controller, or (2) it is based on the data subject's explicit consent,

the Web Raider shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data

subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the

right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to

express his or her point of view and contest the decision.



If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning

automated individual decision-making, he or she may, at any time,

contact any employee of the Web Raider.



i) Right to withdraw data protection consent


Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European

legislator to withdraw his or her consent to processing of his or her

personal data at any time.



If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw the

consent, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the Web

Raider.




13. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google AdSense


On this website, the controller has integrated Google AdSense. Google

AdSense is an online service which allows the placement of advertising

on third-party sites. Google AdSense is based on an algorithm that

selects advertisements displayed on third-party sites to match with the

content of the respective third-party site. Google AdSense allows an

interest-based targeting of the Internet user, which is implemented by

means of generating individual user profiles.



The operating company of Google's AdSense component is Google Ireland

Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.



The purpose of Google's AdSense component is the integration of

advertisements on our website. Google AdSense places a cookie on the

information technology system of the data subject. The definition of

cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Alphabet

Inc. is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to

one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by

the controller and into which a Google AdSense component is integrated,

the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data

subject will automatically submit data through the Google AdSense

component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of

commissions to Alphabet Inc. During the course of this technical

procedure, the enterprise Alphabet Inc. gains knowledge of personal

data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Alphabet

Inc., inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks and

subsequently create commission settlements.




The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies

through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment

of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of

cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also

prevent Alphabet Inc. from setting a cookie on the information

technology system of the data subject. Additionally, cookies already in

use by Alphabet Inc. may be deleted at any time via a web browser or

other software programs.



Furthermore, Google AdSense also uses so-called tracking pixels. A

tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in web pages to

enable a log file recording and a log file analysis through which a

statistical analysis may be performed. Based on the embedded tracking

pixels, Alphabet Inc. is able to determine if and when a website was

opened by a data subject, and which links were clicked on by the data

subject. Tracking pixels serve, inter alia, to analyze the flow of

visitors on a website.



Through Google AdSense, personal data and information—which also

includes the IP address, and is necessary for the collection and

accounting of the displayed advertisements—is transmitted to Alphabet

Inc. in the United States of America. These personal data will be stored

and processed in the United States of America. The Alphabet Inc. may

disclose the collected personal data through this technical procedure to

third parties.



Google AdSense is further explained under the following link https://www.google.com/intl/en/adsense/start/.



14. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)


On this website, the controller has integrated the component of

Google Analytics (with the anonymizer function). Google Analytics is a

web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and

analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web

analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which

a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were

visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web

analytics are mainly used for the optimization of a website and in order

to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.



The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Ireland

Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.



For the web analytics through Google Analytics the controller uses

the application "_gat. _anonymizeIp". By means of this application the

IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is abridged by

Google and anonymised when accessing our websites from a Member State

of the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on

the European Economic Area.



The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the

traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and information,

inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide online

reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other

services concerning the use of our Internet site for us.



Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system

of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. With

the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our

website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this

Internet site, which is operated by the controller and into which a

Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the

information technology system of the data subject will automatically

submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of

online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Google. During

the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise Google gains

knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the data

subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of

visitors and clicks, and subsequently create commission settlements.



The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access

time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of

visits of our website by the data subject. With each visit to our

Internet site, such personal data, including the IP address of the

Internet access used by the data subject, will be transmitted to Google

in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by

Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal

data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.




The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies

through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment

of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of

cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also

prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the information

technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in

use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or

other software programs.



In addition, the data subject has the possibility of objecting to a

collection of data that are generated by Google Analytics, which is

related to the use of this website, as well as the processing of this

data by Google and the chance to preclude any such. For this purpose,

the data subject must download a browser add-on under the link

https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and install it. This browser

add-on tells Google Analytics through a JavaScript, that any data and

information about the visits of Internet pages may not be transmitted to

Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-ons is considered

an objection by Google. If the information technology system of the

data subject is later deleted, formatted, or newly installed, then the

data subject must reinstall the browser add-ons to disable Google

Analytics. If the browser add-on was uninstalled by the data subject or

any other person who is attributable to their sphere of competence, or

is disabled, it is possible to execute the reinstallation or

reactivation of the browser add-ons.



Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of

15. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google Remarketing


On this website, the controller has integrated Google Remarketing

services. Google Remarketing is a feature of Google AdWords, which

allows an enterprise to display advertising to Internet users who have

previously resided on the enterprise's Internet site. The integration of

Google Remarketing therefore allows an enterprise to create user-based

advertising and thus shows relevant advertisements to interested

Internet users.



The operating company of the Google Remarketing services is the

Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5,

Ireland.



The purpose of Google Remarketing is the insertion of

interest-relevant advertising. Google Remarketing allows us to display

ads on the Google network or on other websites, which are based on

individual needs and matched to the interests of Internet users.



Google Remarketing sets a cookie on the information technology system

of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. With

the setting of the cookie, Google enables a recognition of the visitor

of our website if he calls up consecutive web pages, which are also a

member of the Google advertising network. With each call-up to an

Internet site on which the service has been integrated by Google

Remarketing, the web browser of the data subject identifies

automatically with Google. During the course of this technical

procedure, Google receives personal information, such as the IP address

or the surfing behaviour of the user, which Google uses, inter alia, for

the insertion of interest relevant advertising.



The cookie is used to store personal information, e.g. the Internet

pages visited by the data subject. Each time we visit our Internet

pages, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access

used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States

of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United

States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through

the technical procedure to third parties.



The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies

through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment

of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of

cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also

prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology

system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by

Google may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software

programs.



In addition, the data subject has the possibility of objecting to the

interest-based advertising by Google. For this purpose, the data

subject must call up the link to www.google.de/settings/ads and make the

desired settings on each Internet browser used by the data subject.

Google may be retrieved under

https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.



16. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google-AdWords



On this website, the controller has integrated Google AdWords. Google

AdWords is a service for Internet advertising that allows the

advertiser to place ads in Google search engine results and the Google

advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-define

specific keywords with the help of which an ad on Google's search

results only then displayed, when the user utilizes the search engine to

retrieve a keyword-relevant search result. In the Google Advertising

Network, the ads are distributed on relevant web pages using an

automatic algorithm, taking into account the previously defined

keywords.



The operating company of Google AdWords is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.



The purpose of Google AdWords is the promotion of our website by the

inclusion of relevant advertising on the websites of third parties and

in the search engine results of the search engine Google and an

insertion of third-party advertising on our website.



If a data subject reaches our website via a Google ad, a conversion

cookie is filed on the information technology system of the data subject

through Google. The definition of cookies is explained above. A

conversion cookie loses its validity after 30 days and is not used to

identify the data subject. If the cookie has not expired, the conversion

cookie is used to check whether certain sub-pages, e.g, the shopping

cart from an online shop system, were called up on our website. Through

the conversion cookie, both Google and the controller can understand

whether a person who reached an AdWords ad on our website generated

sales, that is, executed or canceled a sale of goods.



The data and information collected through the use of the conversion

cookie is used by Google to create visit statistics for our website.

These visit statistics are used in order to determine the total number

of users who have been served through AdWords ads to ascertain the

success or failure of each AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads in

the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers

receive information from Google that could identify the data subject.



The conversion cookie stores personal information, e.g. the Internet

pages visited by the data subject. Each time we visit our Internet

pages, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access

used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States

of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United

States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through

the technical procedure to third parties.



The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies by

our website, as stated above, by means of a corresponding setting of the

Internet browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies.

Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google

from placing a conversion cookie on the information technology system of

the data subject. In addition, a cookie set by Google AdWords may be

deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.



The data subject has a possibility of objecting to the interest based

advertisement of Google. Therefore, the data subject must access from

each of the browsers in use the link www.google.de/settings/ads and set

the desired settings.

Google may be retrieved under

17. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Twitter


On this website, the controller has integrated components of Twitter.

Twitter is a multilingual, publicly-accessible microblogging service on

which users may publish and spread so-called ‘tweets,’ e.g. short

messages, which are limited to 280 characters. These short messages are

available for everyone, including those who are not logged on to

Twitter. The tweets are also displayed to so-called followers of the

respective user. Followers are other Twitter users who follow a user's

tweets. Furthermore, Twitter allows you to address a wide audience via

hashtags, links or retweets.



The operating company of Twitter is Twitter International Company,

One Cumberland Place, Fenian Street Dublin 2, D02 AX07, Ireland.



With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet

site, which is operated by the controller and on which a Twitter

component (Twitter button) was integrated, the Internet browser on the

information technology system of the data subject is automatically

prompted to download a display of the corresponding Twitter component of

Twitter. Further information about the Twitter buttons is available

under https://about.twitter.com/de/resources/buttons. During the course

of this technical procedure, Twitter gains knowledge of what specific

sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject. The purpose of

the integration of the Twitter component is a retransmission of the

contents of this website to allow our users to introduce this web page

to the digital world and increase our visitor numbers.



If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Twitter, Twitter

detects with every call-up to our website by the data subject and for

the entire duration of their stay on our Internet site which specific

sub-page of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This

information is collected through the Twitter component and associated

with the respective Twitter account of the data subject. If the data

subject clicks on one of the Twitter buttons integrated on our website,

then Twitter assigns this information to the personal Twitter user

account of the data subject and stores the personal data.



Twitter receives information via the Twitter component that the data

subject has visited our website, provided that the data subject is

logged in on Twitter at the time of the call-up to our website. This

occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on the Twitter component

or not. If such a transmission of information to Twitter is not

desirable for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by

logging off from their Twitter account before a call-up to our website

is made.



The applicable data protection provisions of Twitter may be accessed under https://twitter.com/privacy?lang=en.



18. Data protection provisions about the application and use of YouTube


On this website, the controller has integrated components of YouTube.

YouTube is an Internet video portal that enables video publishers to

set video clips and other users free of charge, which also provides free

viewing, review and commenting on them. YouTube allows you to publish

all kinds of videos, so you can access both full movies and TV

broadcasts, as well as music videos, trailers, and videos made by users

via the Internet portal.



The operating company of YouTube is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.



With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet

site, which is operated by the controller and on which a YouTube

component (YouTube video) was integrated, the Internet browser on the

information technology system of the data subject is automatically

prompted to download a display of the corresponding YouTube component.

Further information about YouTube may be obtained under

https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/en/. During the course of this

technical procedure, YouTube and Google gain knowledge of what specific

sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject.



If the data subject is logged in on YouTube, YouTube recognizes with

each call-up to a sub-page that contains a YouTube video, which specific

sub-page of our Internet site was visited by the data subject. This

information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the

respective YouTube account of the data subject.



YouTube and Google will receive information through the YouTube

component that the data subject has visited our website, if the data

subject at the time of the call to our website is logged in on YouTube;

this occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on a YouTube video

or not. If such a transmission of this information to YouTube and Google

is not desirable for the data subject, the delivery may be prevented if

the data subject logs off from their own YouTube account before a

call-up to our website is made.



YouTube's data protection provisions, available at

https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/, provide information

about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and

Google.



19. Payment Method: Data protection provisions about the use of PayPal as a payment processor


On this website, the controller has integrated components of PayPal.

PayPal is an online payment service provider. Payments are processed via

so-called PayPal accounts, which represent virtual private or business

accounts. PayPal is also able to process virtual payments through credit

cards when a user does not have a PayPal account. A PayPal account is

managed via an e-mail address, which is why there are no classic account

numbers. PayPal makes it possible to trigger online payments to third

parties or to receive payments. PayPal also accepts trustee functions

and offers buyer protection services.



The European operating company of PayPal is PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal L-2449, Luxemburg.



If the data subject chooses "PayPal" as the payment option in the

online shop during the ordering process, we automatically transmit the

data of the data subject to PayPal. By selecting this payment option,

the data subject agrees to the transfer of personal data required for

payment processing.



The personal data transmitted to PayPal is usually first name, last

name, address, email address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone

number, or other data necessary for payment processing. The processing

of the purchase contract also requires such personal data, which are in

connection with the respective order.



The transmission of the data is aimed at payment processing and fraud

prevention. The controller will transfer personal data to PayPal, in

particular, if a legitimate interest in the transmission is given. The

personal data exchanged between PayPal and the controller for the

processing of the data will be transmitted by PayPal to economic credit

agencies. This transmission is intended for identity and

creditworthiness checks.



PayPal will, if necessary, pass on personal data to affiliates and

service providers or subcontractors to the extent that this is necessary

to fulfill contractual obligations or for data to be processed in the

order.



The data subject has the possibility to revoke consent for the

handling of personal data at any time from PayPal. A revocation shall

not have any effect on personal data which must be processed, used or

transmitted in accordance with (contractual) payment processing.



The applicable data protection provisions of PayPal may be retrieved

under https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full.



20. Legal basis for the processing


Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing

operations for 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 the data subject is party, as is the

case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the

supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based

on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing

operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual

measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products

or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which

processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of

tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR.

In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to

protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural

person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured

in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital

information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other

third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d

GDPR.

Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f

GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not

covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is

necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our

company 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. Such processing operations

are particularly permissible because they have been specifically

mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate

interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the

controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).



21. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party


Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f

GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of

the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.



22. Period for which the personal data will be stored


The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data

is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that

period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no

longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation

of a contract.



23. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual

requirement; Requirement necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation

of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences

of failure to provide such data


We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by

law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual

provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner).


Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data

subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be

processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us

with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her.

The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that

the contract with the data subject could not be concluded.


Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject

must contact any employee. The employee clarifies to the data subject

whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or

contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether

there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences

of non-provision of the personal data.



24. Existence of automated decision-making


As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.



Developed by the specialists for LegalTech at Willing & Able that also developed the system for sign online. The legal texts contained in our privacy policy generator have been provided and published by Prof. Dr. h.c. Heiko Jonny Maniero from the German Association for Data Protection and Christian Solmecke from WBS law.
