When do we process per­sonal data?
We process the per­sonal data which you actively trans­mit to us by online sub­mis­sion. Fur­ther­more, we auto­mat­i­cally process per­sonal data based on your use of our web­site. Your data may there­fore be processed, in par­tic­u­lar, in the fol­low­ing cases:

  • Visit of our web­site;
  • Sub­scrip­tion to the email newslet­ter;
  • Con­tact­ing us;
  • Analy­sis of which vis­i­tors access our web­site and how they use it;
  • Defence against attacks on our tech­ni­cal infra­struc­ture;

For details, please read the fol­low­ing expla­na­tions.

Visit of our web­site
When you access our web­site, the com­pany com­mis­sioned by us to oper­ate the web­site processes and stores tech­ni­cal infor­ma­tion about the ter­mi­nal you use (oper­at­ing sys­tem, screen res­o­lu­tion and other, non-​personal fea­tures) and the browser (ver­sion, lan­guage set­tings), and par­tic­u­larly also the pub­lic IP address of the com­puter you use to access our web­site, as well as the date and time of access. The IP address is a dis­tinct, numer­i­cal address under which your ter­mi­nal sends and/​or requests data to or from the inter­net. We and our ser­vice provider do not nor­mally know the iden­tity of the per­son behind the IP address, unless you dis­close data to us dur­ing your use of the web­site which enable us to iden­tify you. Users may also be iden­ti­fied if legal pro­ceed­ings have to be taken against them (e.g. where our web­site is attacked) and we learn of their iden­tity in the con­text of the inves­ti­ga­tions. You there­fore do not nor­mally need to worry about us being able to allo­cate your IP address to you per­son­ally.
Our ser­vice provider uses the processed data in non-​personal form for sta­tis­ti­cal pur­poses, in order to enable us to under­stand which ter­mi­nals and which set­tings are used to visit our web­site and to opti­mise the web­site where nec­es­sary. The sta­tis­tics do not con­tain per­sonal data. The legal basis for the pro­duc­tion of sta­tis­tics is Arti­cle 6 (1) f) GDPR.
Your IP address is also used to enable you tech­ni­cally to access and use our web­site and for the detec­tion and defence against attacks on our ser­vice provider or our web­site. Unfor­tu­nately, attacks with the aim of caus­ing dam­age to web­site oper­a­tors or their users do occur (e.g. denial of access, spy­ing on data, dis­sem­i­nat­ing mal­ware (e.g. viruses) or other illicit pur­poses). Such attacks would com­pro­mise the proper func­tion­ing of the data cen­tre of the com­pany com­mis­sioned by us, the use of our web­site and/​or its func­tion­al­i­ties, and the secu­rity of vis­i­tors to our web­site. IP addresses and the time of access are processed for the pur­pose of defend­ing against such attacks. Via our ser­vice provider, we use this pro­cess­ing to pur­sue our legit­i­mate inter­est to secure the func­tion­ing of our web­site and defend against ille­gal attacks against us and the vis­i­tors to our web­site. The legal basis for pro­cess­ing is Arti­cle 6 (1) f) GDPR.
The stored IP data are deleted (by way of anonymi­sa­tion) when they are no longer needed for the detec­tion or defence against an attack.

Con­tact requests /​Chat
When you send us a mes­sage through one of the con­tact­ing options offered we use the data you sub­mit to us to process your enquiry. The legal basis for this is our legit­i­mate inter­est to respond to your enquiry pur­suant to Arti­cle 6 (1) f) GDPR. If your enquiry relates to the con­clu­sion of a con­tract with us, a fur­ther legal basis for the pro­cess­ing is Arti­cle 6 (1) b) GDPR. The data are deleted once your enquiry has been dealt with. Where we are under a statu­tory oblig­a­tion to retain the data for longer, they will be deleted fol­low­ing expiry of the applic­a­ble reten­tion period.

If you reg­is­ter for our email newslet­ter, your data will be used for the pur­pose of cre­at­ing and send­ing the newslet­ter and for ver­i­fy­ing the reg­is­tra­tion for our newslet­ter until you revoke your con­sent. The legal basis for pro­cess­ing is Arti­cle 6 (1) a) GDPR. We use the plat­form of an exter­nal ser­vice provider for our newslet­ter, to which we dis­close your per­sonal data to the nec­es­sary extent within the scope of a third-​party data pro­cess­ing agree­ment.
In order for newslet­ters to be sent to you, you must click on the con­fir­ma­tion link in the ver­i­fi­ca­tion email which we will send you fol­low­ing reg­is­tra­tion, in order to ver­ify your con­sent. When you click on the appro­pri­ate link, we process the pub­lic ID of the com­puter from which the link is accessed, together with the date and time of the click. We process these data to be able to prove that you have con­firmed your request to receive the newslet­ter.
The legal basis for pro­cess­ing is Arti­cle 6 (1) f) GDPR. Our legit­i­mate inter­est in this case lies in the com­pli­ance with our oblig­a­tion to pro­duce proof of the sub­scrip­tion you have taken out.
You may revoke your con­sent at any time by unsub­scrib­ing from the newslet­ter. A link for this pur­pose can be found at the bot­tom of each newslet­ter.
We will delete your data once you unsub­scribe from the newslet­ter. The data which we require to prove that you con­sented to the send­ing of the newslet­ter will be deleted fol­low­ing expiry of the lim­i­ta­tion period applic­a­ble to such oblig­a­tions for pro­duce proof.

Google Ana­lyt­ics
In the con­text of a third-​party data pro­cess­ing agree­ment, we use Google Ana­lyt­ics, a ser­vice pro­vided by Google Ire­land Lim­ited, https://​www​.google​.de/​c​o​n​t​a​c​t​/​i​m​p​r​e​s​s​u​m​.html. Google as the third-​party data proces­sor uses a “cookie” for this pur­pose. A cookie is a small text file which is stored on your com­puter by your browser. By way of this cookie, Google will obtain infor­ma­tion about which web­site you have accessed and, in addi­tion, par­tic­u­larly the fol­low­ing infor­ma­tion: browser type/​version, oper­at­ing sys­tem used, tech­ni­cal infor­ma­tion about the oper­at­ing sys­tem and the browser, and the pub­lic IP address of the com­puter used by you. We use Google Ana­lyt­ics in a man­ner which means that your IP address is only used in anonymised for­mat. Accord­ing to infor­ma­tion from Google, this anonymi­sa­tion takes place in the Euro­pean Union or a mem­ber state of the EEA. Only in excep­tional cases will a full IP address be trans­mit­ted to a Google server in the USA and be short­ened there. Accord­ing to Google, anonymi­sa­tion takes place before the first time that an IP address is stored on a per­ma­nent data car­rier. For details, please refer to the Google pri­vacy pol­icy, avail­able at https://​sup​port​.google​.com/​a​n​a​l​y​t​i​c​s​/​a​n​s​w​e​r​/​6004245​?​hl=en
Google Ana­lyt­ics allows us to cre­ate user sta­tis­tics about our web­site in non-​personalised form and to col­lect demo­graphic data about vis­i­tors and their usage behav­iour. Fur­ther­more, sta­tis­tics are pro­duced which help us to under­stand how users find our web­site, in order to improve our search engine opti­mi­sa­tion and our adver­tis­ing cam­paigns. This pro­cess­ing serves our legit­i­mate inter­est to improve our web­site and adver­tis­ing cam­paigns. The legal basis for pro­cess­ing is Arti­cle 6 (1) f) GDPR.
The pseu­do­ny­mous data are deleted after PERIOD.
At http://​tools​.google​.com/​d​l​p​a​g​e​/​g​a​o​p​t​o​u​t​?​hl=de, Google pro­vides infor­ma­tion about how to object to the use of Google Ana­lyt­ics.
PLEASE NOTE: As the option above does not work on all ter­mi­nals, an addi­tional option must be inserted on your web­site to enable an opt-​out cookie to be set. Accord­ing to the infor­ma­tion avail­able to me, the instruc­tions on this web­site https://​blog​.mar​ket​ing​-fac​tory​.de/​d​a​t​e​n​s​c​h​u​t​z​/​g​o​o​g​l​e​-​a​n​a​l​y​t​i​c​s​-​o​p​t​-out/ should work, but def­i­nitely get your web­site tech­nol­ogy depart­ment to check whether this is the cor­rect and func­tion­ing imple­men­ta­tion for your pur­poses! Accord­ing the instruc­tions, this text would then be used in the pri­vacy pol­icy:

Alter­na­tively to the browser add-​on or, on mobile devices, within browsers, please click on this link to pre­vent any future col­lec­tion by Google Ana­lyt­ics on this web­site

If you delete the cook­ies in this browser you will need to click on this link again.


We use a web ana­lyt­ics ser­vice on our web­site for mar­ket­ing and opti­miza­tion pur­poses; this ser­vice is pro­vided by Inspect­let Inc with reg­is­tered office in Cal­i­for­nia, USA (“Inspect­Let”). Inspect­let uses “cook­ies”, which are text files that are stored on your com­puter to ana­lyze your use of the web­site (e.g. which con­tent is clicked on the web­site). Inspect­let will process the data col­lected by the cookie on our behalf in order to ana­lyze user behav­ior on our web­site and to pro­vide us with reports on the use of our web­site. Per­sonal data col­lected by Inspect­let may be trans­mit­ted to an Inspect­let server in the USA.

Inspect­let is GDPR com­pli­ant and there­fore offers a guar­an­tee that it com­plies with Euro­pean data pro­tec­tion leg­is­la­tion (https://​docs​.inspect​let​.com/​h​c​/​e​n​-​u​s​/​a​r​t​i​c​l​e​s​/​360002994432​-​P​r​i​v​a​c​y​-​I​m​p​a​c​t​-​A​s​s​e​s​s​m​e​n​t​-​u​n​d​e​r​-GDPR). Addi­tional infor­ma­tion on data pri­vacy by Inspect­let is avail­able on Inspectlet’s web­site at https://​www​.inspect​let​.com/​l​e​g​a​l​#​p​r​ivacy.

You can object to the col­lec­tion, pro­cess­ing and record­ing of your per­sonal data by the Inspect­let ana­lyt­ics ser­vice at any time by fol­low­ing the instruc­tions at http://​www​.inspect​let​.com/​o​ptout. This will result in an opt-​out cookie being stored on your device. If you delete the cook­ies from your device, it will there­fore be nec­es­sary to fol­low the instruc­tions under the afore­men­tioned link again in order to con­tinue to deac­ti­vate Inspect­let.

We use Inspect­let to ana­lyze use of the web­site and in order to con­tin­u­ously improve our web­site and make it more user friendly. This opti­miza­tion also requires sta­tis­ti­cal infor­ma­tion on the use of the web­site. The basis for using Inspect­let is Arti­cle 6 (1) first sen­tence lit. f) GDPR. Our legit­i­mate inter­est in this con­text is the con­tin­u­ous improve­ment and devel­op­ment of our web­site.

Use of cook­ies and com­pa­ra­ble tech­nolo­gies
We use cook­ies to oper­ate our web­site, which ensure the tech­ni­cal func­tion­ing of our web­site and allow us to under­stand how vis­i­tors use the web­site.
A cookie is a small text file which is stored on your ter­mi­nal by your browser when you access our web­site. If you visit our web­site again at a later time we are able to read these cook­ies again. Cook­ies are stored for vary­ing lengths of time. You have the option at any time to con­fig­ure in your browser which cook­ies you would like your browser to accept; how­ever, this may result in our web­site mal­func­tion­ing. You may also delete cook­ies your­self at any time. If you do not do this we may spec­ify when the cookie is set how long we wish the cookie to remain on your com­puter. Here we dis­tin­guish between so-​called ses­sion cook­ies and per­sis­tent cook­ies. Ses­sion cook­ies are deleted by your browser when you leave our web­site or close the browser. Per­sis­tent cook­ies are stored for the period of time spec­i­fied by us when the cookie is set.
We use cook­ies for the fol­low­ing pur­poses:

  • Tech­ni­cally required cook­ies, which are strictly nec­es­sary to use the func­tions of our web­site. With­out these cook­ies, cer­tain func­tions can­not be pro­vided.
  • Func­tional cook­ies, which are used to enable the tech­ni­cal imple­men­ta­tion of cer­tain func­tions you wish to use.
  • Analy­sis cook­ies, which serve the pur­pose of analysing use of our web­site. Please read the infor­ma­tion about Google Ana­lyt­ics for details.

Most browsers used by our users allow you to con­fig­ure which type of cookie should be saved and enable the dele­tion of (spe­cific) cook­ies. If you limit the set­ting of cook­ies on par­tic­u­lar web­sites or reject any cook­ies from third-​party web­sites you may not be able to use our web­site to the full extent. Infor­ma­tion about cookie set­tings in the most com­mon browsers can be found here:
