With every visit on a single page on this website which is operated by the controller and on which a component of Facebook is integrated (Facebook plug-in), the internet browser on the information technological system of the data subject is prompted by the according to the Facebook component to download a representation of the according to Facebook component from Facebook. A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_US. Within this technical procedure receives Facebook the information on which explicit subpage on our website is visited by the data subject.
As far as the data subject is logged in on Facebook simultaneously, Facebook detects with every visit on our website and the complete duration of the stay on our website, which explicit sub-website has been visited by the data subject. This information is collected through the component of Facebook and linked to the referring Facebook account of the data subject. If a data subject presses one of the integrated Facebook buttons on our website, for example, the “Like” button or the data subjects writes a comment, Facebook will associate this information to the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and saves this personal data.

If such a transfer of information to Facebook is not intended by the data subject, the data subject can stop the transfer by means of logging out on Facebook before the visit of our website.
12. Data protection regulations for the application and use of Google Analytics (with function for anonymization)
The controller has integrated components from Google Analytics (with function for anonymization) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the uprising, collection, and evaluation of data about the behavior of visitors of websites. The web analysis service captures inter alia data about from which website the data subject is coming (the so-called referrer), which subpages of the website are visited, or how often and for how long the subpage was visited. A web analysis is generally used for the improvement of a website and for cost-benefit analysis of websites.
The company of Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043 – 1351, USA.
The controller uses for the web analysis via Google Analysis the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp”. Via this addition, the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is shortened and anonymized by Google if the access on our website occurs from a member state of the European Union or from a contractual state of the convention about the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is the analysis of streams of visitors on our website. Google uses the gained data and information to evaluate the usage of our website, to compile online reports which show the activities on our websites, and to deliver further available services in relation to the usage of our website.
Google Analytics sets a Cookie on the information technological system of the data subject. The subject Cookie has already been explained above. By setting this Cookie, Google is enabled to do this analysis of our website. Through every visit of the subpages of this website which is operated by the controller and where the Google Analytics component was integrated, the internet browser on the information technological system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the particular Google Analytics component to transfer data for the purpose of the online analysis to Google. Within this technological procedure, Google acquires knowledge about the personal data like the IP address of the data subject which serves Google to retrace the location of the visitor, the number of visits and klicks and as a result, to enable commission invoices.
With these Cookies, personal data, for example, the time of access, the location from where access originated, and the frequency of visits on our website by the data subject are saved. Through every visit on our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the used internet connection of the data subject, is transferred to and saved by Google in the United States of America. Google might give the personal data which is gained through the technical procedures possibly to a third party.
The data subject can prevent the setting of Cookies by our website at any time, via a particular configuration of the used internet browser like explained above and in this way, disagree to this permanently. Such configuration of the used internet browser would also prevent that Google sets a Cookie on the information technological system of the data subject. Additionally, it is possible to erase an already set Cookie by the internet browser or another software program at any time.
13. Data protection regulations for the application of YouTube
The controller has integrated components from YouTube. YouTube is an Internet video portal that enables video-publisher the upload videos clips and other users the viewing, valuation, and commenting for free. YouTube allows the publication of all kinds of videos which is why there are complete movie and tv shows, music videos, trailers as well as self-made videos from users available at the internet portal.

With each visit on a subpage of this website which is operated by the controller and has integrated a YouTube component (YouTube-video), the internet browser on the information technological system of the data subject is prompted automatically by the particular YouTube component to download a representation of the according to YouTube component by YouTube. Further information about YouTube can be called upon https://www.youtube.com/intl/en-GB/yt/about/. Within this technical procedure, YouTube and Google acquire knowledge on which explicit subpages of our website are visited by the data subject.
As far as the data subject is logged in on YouTube simultaneously, YouTube will recognize what explicit subpage of our website the data subject has visited with each visit of a subpage that contains a YouTube video. This information will be collected by YouTube and Google and will be associated with the particular YouTube account of the data subject.
YouTube and Google receive information every time that the data subject has visited our website via the YouTube component if the data subject is logged in on YouTube simultaneously to the visit our website and this happens independently on if the data subject opens a YouTube video or not. If such transfer of information to YouTube and Google is not intended by the data subject, this transfer can be prevented by logging out of YouTube before visiting our website.
14. Legal basis of processing
Art.6 I lit. a (GDPR) serves our company as the legal basis for processing acts for which we obtain approval for a particular purpose of processing. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfillment of a contract, in which the contracting party is the data subject, this is the case with some processing acts which are necessary for the delivery of commodities or service,0 s for example, then this processing refers to art. 6 I lit. b (GDPR). The same applies to processes that are necessarily needed for the provision of precontractual measures, like in cases of inquiries for our products and services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation, due to this a processing of personal data is necessary, as for example the fulfillment of tax duties, the processing is based on art. 6 I lit. c (GDPR). In rare cases, the processing of personal data could be necessary to protect the vital interests of data subjects or other natural persons. Such a case could be for example if a visitor in our company gets injured and his or her name, age, data of health insurance, or other vital information must be transferred to a doctor, hospital, or other third parties. Then the processing refers to art. 6 I lit. d (GDPR). Finally, the procedures could refer to art. 6 I lit. f (GDPR). On this legal basis, procedures are based which are not included by the legal bases beforehand if the processing is necessary for the protection of a justified interest from our company or a third party, as far as the interest, fundamental rights, and fundamental freedoms of the data subject are not prevailing. Such procedures are specially allowed because they were specially mentioned by the European legislator. He represents the conception insofar, that a justified interest could be accepted if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47 sentence 2 (GDPR)).
15. Justified interests in processing which are pursued by the controller or by a third party
Referring the processing on personal data art. 6 I (GPDR), it is our justified interest to execute our business operations in favor of the welfare of all our employees and our shareholder.
16. Duration of storage of personal data
The criteria of the duration for the storage of personal data is the particular legal retention obligation. After the expiry of the obligation, the relevant data is going to be erased routinely, as far as there are not necessary for any performance of a contract or a contract initiation.
17. Legal or contractual regulations for provisioning personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of data subject to provide personal data; potential consequences of non-provision
We clarify to you that the provision of personal data is partially prescribed by law (for example tax regulations) or result from contractual arrangements (for example data of the contracting party). Sometimes it might be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject allocates us personal data which must be processed in our company in consequence. The data subject is obliged to provide us personal data, f.e. when our company terminates a contract with him or her. The non-provision of personal data would have the consequences that a contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before the provision of personal data through the data subject, the data subject has to contact one of our employees. Our employee will clarify to the data subject individually if the provision of the personal data is legally or contractually obligated or necessary for the conclusion of a contract if there is an obligation in order to provide the personal data and which consequences a non-provision of personal data would have.
18. Existing of an automated decision-making
As a conscientious company, we waive automated decision-making or profiling.
