In principle, we only process personal data of our users where it is necessary for the deployment of an operational website or for the proper functioning of our content and services. The regular processing of personal data of our users takes place only with the consent of the user. An exception applies to cases in which prior consent is not possible due to practical reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

1.4     Legal basis
Provided the data subject has given consent to the processing of his or her personal data, Article 6(1a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as a legal basis.
In the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, Article 6(1b) of the GDPR serves as a legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual obligations.
As far as processing of personal data is required to comply with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject, Article 6(1c) of the GDPR serves as a legal basis.
If the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6(1d) of the GDPR serves as a legal basis.
If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights, and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail over the first interest, Article 6(1f) of the GDPR serves as a legal basis.

1.5     Data Deletion and Storage Duration
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data storage may follow in accordance with the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws, or other regulations to which the controller is subject. Blocking or deletion of the data also takes place when a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for conclusion of a contract or fulfillment of the contract.

5    Web analysis

5.1     Scope of data processing
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google"). The use includes the operating mode "Universal Analytics". This makes it possible to assign data, sessions, and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID, thus analyzing the activities of a user across devices.
Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
However, in the event of activation of IP encryption on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

The legal basis for the processing of a user´s personal data is in accordance with Article 6(1f) of the GDPR.

5.3     Purpose of processing
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.
The processing of users' personal data enables us to analyze the browsing behavior of our users. By analyzing the obtained data, we can compile information about the use of the individual components of our website. This helps us to constantly improve our website and its user-friendliness.
For these purposes, our legitimate interest in the processing of the data using Google Analytics is in accordance with § 15 para. 3 TMG or Article 6(1f) of the GDPR.
The anonymisation of the IP address sufficiently considers the interest of users in their protection of personal data.

6    Social Media Plugins

6.1     Scope of data processing
On our website, so-called social plugins ("plugins") of the social networks Facebook and Google+ and the microblogging service Twitter are used. These services are provided by the companies Facebook Inc., Google Inc., and Twitter Inc. ("Provider").
Facebook is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). An overview of the plugins of Facebook and their appearance can be found here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins
Google+ is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). For an overview of Google's plugins and how they look, please visit: https://developers.google.com/+/web/
Twitter is operated by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA ("Twitter"). An overview of the Twitter buttons and their appearance can be found here: https://about.twitter.com/en_us/company/brand-resources.html
To increase the protection of your data when visiting our website, the plugins are integrated into the site by means of a so-called "2-click solution". This integration ensures that when you visit a page of our website that contains such plugins, no connection with the servers of Facebook, Google and Twitter is made. Only when you activate the plugins and thus give your consent to the data transmission, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of Google, Facebook, or Twitter. The content of the respective plugin is then transmitted directly to your browser by the associated provider and integrated into the page. By integrating the plugins, the providers receive the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a profile with the corresponding provider or are currently not logged in. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a server of the respective provider in the USA and stored there.
This means, we have no influence or current knowledge over the extent of the data which Facebook, Google and Twitter obtains with the help of this plugin.

6.2     Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the processing of a user´s personal data is in accordance with Article 6(1f) of the GDPR.

Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/

6.4     Duration of data storage
Please refer to the corresponding privacy policies of Facebook, Google, and Twitter.

6.5     Options for contesting and appealing
If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him via this online content and link it to his member data stored on Facebook, he must log out of Facebook and delete his cookies before using our website. Other settings and inconsistencies regarding the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads or via the US-American site http://www.aboutads.info / choices / or the EU page http://www.youronlinechoices.com/. The settings are platform independent, i.e. they are adopted for all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.
If you do not want Facebook to directly assign the data collected via our website to your Facebook profile, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. You can completely prevent the loading of Facebook plugins even with add-ons for your browser, e.g.
for Mozilla Firefox:
