Notwithstanding the above, the user has a right to information about these recipients.

In particular, an objection to data processing for the purpose of direct advertising is permitted.

 

II. Rights of users and data subjects

Your data processed during the use of our website will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage ceases to apply, the deletion of the data does not conflict with any statutory retention obligations and no other information is provided below regarding individual processing procedures.

 

Server data

For technical reasons, in particular to ensure a secure and stable Internet presence, data is transmitted by your Internet browser to us or to our web space provider. These so-called server log files are used to collect, among other things, the type and version of your Internet browser, the operating system, the website from which you accessed our website (referrer URL), the website(s) of our website that you visit, the date and time of the respective access, as well as the IP address of the Internet connection from which the use of our website takes place.

The data collected in this way is stored temporarily, but not together with other data about you.

This storage takes place on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality and security of our website.

The data is deleted again after seven days at the latest, unless further storage is required for evidence purposes. Otherwise, the data is exempt from deletion in whole or in part until final clarification of an incident.

This processing makes our website more user-friendly, effective and secure, as the processing enables, for example, the reproduction of our website in different languages.

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit b.) DSGVO, insofar as these cookies data are processed for contract initiation or contract execution.

If the processing does not serve the purpose of initiating or executing a contract, our legitimate interest lies in improving the functionality of our website. In this case, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

The steps and measures required for this also depend on the specific Flash player you use. If you have any questions, please also use the help function or documentation of your Flash player or contact the manufacturer or user support.

However, if you prevent or restrict the installation of cookies, this may mean that not all functions of our website can be fully used.

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

Your data will be deleted if your inquiry has been conclusively answered and the deletion does not conflict with any statutory retention obligations, such as in the case of any subsequent contract processing.

If an application is rejected, we automatically delete the data provided to us two months after notification of the rejection. However, the deletion does not take place if the data requires longer storage of up to four months or until the conclusion of legal proceedings due to legal provisions, e.g. due to the obligation to provide evidence according to the AGG.

In this case, the legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO and § 24 Para. 1 No. 2 BDSG. Our legitimate interest lies in the legal defense or enforcement.

If you expressly consent to a longer storage of your data, e.g. for your inclusion in a database of applicants or interested parties, the data will be further processed based on your consent.

Usage and user-related information, such as IP address, location, time or frequency of visits to our website, is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, we use Google Analytics with the so-called anonymization function. Through this function, Google already shortens the IP address within the EU or EEA.

The data collected in this way is in turn used by Google to provide us with an evaluation of the visit to our website and the usage activities there. This data may also be used to provide other services related to the use of our website and the use of the Internet.

Google states that it will not associate your IP address with any other data. In addition, Google keeps a record of your IP address at

Google provides you with further information on data protection law, including information on how to prevent the use of your data.

In addition, Google offers a website at

https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

offers a so-called deactivation add-on together with further information on this. This add-on can be installed with the most common Internet browsers and offers you further control over the data that Google collects when you visit our website. The add-on tells the JavaScript (ga.js) of Google Analytics that information about the visit to our website should not be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, this does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analytics services. If and which other web analytics services are used by us, you will of course also find out in this privacy policy.

Through the connection to Google established in this way, Google can determine from which website your request was sent and to which IP address the directions are to be transmitted.

If you do not agree to this processing, you have the option of preventing the installation of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your Internet browser. Details on this can be found above under the item “Cookies”.

Online presences in social media

We maintain online presences within social networks and platforms in order to communicate with interested parties and users active there and to be able to inform them about my intentions and goals. When calling up the respective networks and platforms, the terms and conditions and data processing policies of their respective operators apply.

Unless otherwise stated in the privacy policy, we process the data of users insofar as they communicate with us within the social networks and platforms, e.g. write posts on our online presences or send us messages.

 

Integration of YouTube videos or content

We also use videos on this website. Videos make content easier to understand. For this purpose, we may use external providers such as YouTube. In addition, we may occasionally include other videos from external sites. Third-party providers are also used here. For technical reasons, the integration of videos results in calls to the servers of the respective providers, such as YouTube. For the associated use of data from your browser or terminal device, we refer to the privacy notices of the respective providers.

Further information on YouTube’s data protection is provided by Google under the following link: https://www.youtube.com/t/privacy_at_youtube.

 

External links

We have no influence on the content and design of these pages of other providers. The guarantees of this data protection declaration therefore naturally do not apply.
