3. Privacy policy for the use of Twitter

The controller responsible for processing has integrated Twitter components into this website. Twitter is a multilingual, publicly accessible micro-blogging service on which users can post and share so-called tweets, i.e. short messages limited to 280 characters. These short messages can be accessed by anyone, including individuals who are have not signed up to Twitter. The tweets are also displayed to the so-called followers of the respective user. Followers are other Twitter users who follow a user's tweets. Furthermore, Twitter makes it possible to address a broad audience via hashtags, links or retweets.

Twitter is operated by Twitter, Inc, 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website is visited, which is operated by the person responsible for processing and on which a Twitter component (Twitter button) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the person's information technology system is automatically prompted by the respective Twitter component, to download a representation of the corresponding Twitter component from Twitter. Further information on the Twitter buttons can be found at https://about.twitter.com/de/resources/buttons. As part of this technical process, Twitter is informed about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned. The purpose of integrating the Twitter component is to enable our users to disseminate the content of this website, to make this website known in the digital world and to increase our visitor numbers.

If the person concerned is logged in to Twitter simultaneously, Twitter recognizes which specific subpage of our website the person concerned visits each time the person accesses our website, and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the Twitter component and assigned to the respective Twitter account of the person concerned by Twitter. If the person concerned presses one of the Twitter buttons integrated on our website, the data and information thus transmitted will be assigned to the personal Twitter user account of the person concerned, and stored and processed by Twitter.

Twitter receives information via the Twitter component that the person concerned has visited our website whenever the person concerned is logged in to Twitter at the same time as accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the person concerned clicks on the Twitter component or not. If such a transmission of this information to Twitter is not desired by the person concerned, he can prevent this transmission by logging out of his Twitter account before visiting our website.

4. Privacy policy for the use of Google+

The data controller has integrated the Google+ button as a component on this website. Google+ is a so-called social network. A social network is an Internet-based social meeting place, an online community that usually enables users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual environments. A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or enables the Internet community to make personal or company-related information available. Google+ enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friendship requests, among other things.

Google+ is operated by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website is visited, which is operated by the person responsible for processing and on which a Google+ button has been integrated, the Internet browser on the person's information technology system is automatically prompted by the respective Twitter component, to download a representation of the corresponding Twitter component from Twitter. As part of this technical process, Google is informed about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned. More detailed information about Google+ is available at https://developers.google.com/+/ .

If the person concerned is logged in to Google simultaneously, Google recognizes which specific subpage of our website the person concerned visits each time the person accesses our website, and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the Google+ button and assigned to the respective Google+ account of the person concerned by Google.

If the person concerned clicks one of the Google+ buttons integrated on our website, and thereby makes a Google+ recommendation, Google assigns this information to the personal Google+ user account of the person concerned, and stores this personal data. Google stores the Google+ recommendation of the person concerned and makes it publicly available in accordance with the conditions accepted by the person concerned. A Google+1 recommendation made by the person concerned on this website will subsequently be stored and processed together with other personal data, such as the name of the Google+ account used by the person concerned and the photo stored in this account in other Google services, such as the search engine results of the Google search engine, the Google account of the person concerned or in other places, for example on websites or in connection with advertisements. Furthermore, Google is able to link the visit to this website with other personal data stored by Google. Google also records this personal information for the purpose of improving or optimizing the various services provided by Google.

Google receives information via the Google+ button that the person concerned has visited our website whenever the person concerned is logged in to Google+ at the same time as accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the person concerned clicks on the Google+ button or not.

If the person concerned does not want their personal data to be transmitted to Google, they can prevent such a transmission by logging out of their Google+ account before visiting our website.

Further information from Google about the Google+1 button can be found at: https://developers.google.com/+/web/buttons-policy

5. Privacy policy for the use of Google Adwords

The data controller has integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to place ads in both Google's search engine results and the Google Advertising Network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-define certain keywords to display an ad in Google's search engine results only when the user uses the search engine to retrieve a keyword-relevant search result. In the Google Network, ads are distributed to thematically relevant web pages using an automatic algorithm and using the previously defined keywords.

The operator of Google AdWords services is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our website by displaying interest-relevant advertising on the websites of third parties and in the search engine results of the Google search engine and by displaying third-party advertising on our website.

If an affected person comes to our website via a Google ad, Google stores a so-called conversion cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and is not used to identify the person concerned. If the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie is used to determine whether certain subpages, such as the shopping basket of an online shop system, have been visited on our website. The conversion cookie enables both us and Google to track whether a person concerned, who came to our website via an AdWords ad, has generated revenue, i.e. whether they completed or cancelled a purchase of goods.

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to generate visit statistics for our website. We use these visit statistics to determine the total number of users who have been referred to us via AdWords ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could identify the person concerned.

The conversion cookie is used to store personal information, such as the websites visited by the person concerned. Personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is therefore transmitted to Google in the United States of America each time he or she visits our website. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time, as already described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used, and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting in the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from placing a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, it is also possible for the person concerned to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, the person concerned must go to the link http://www.google.de/settings/ads from each of the Internet browsers they use and make the desired setting changes there.

YouTube is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the data controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective YouTube component to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. More information about YouTube can be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/ . As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google are informed about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.

If the person concerned is simultaneously logged in to YouTube, YouTube recognizes which specific subpage of our website the person concerned is visiting when they open a subpage containing a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and mapped to the respective YouTube account of the person concerned.

YouTube and Google receive information via the YouTube component that the person concerned has visited our website whenever the person concerned is logged in to YouTube at the same time as visiting our website; this happens regardless of whether the person concerned clicks on a YouTube video or not. If such a transmission of this information to YouTube and Google is not desired by the person concerned, he can prevent this transmission by logging out of his YouTube account before visiting our website.

Further information on the handling, collection and processing of user data can be found in the privacy policy of YouTube and Google at:

XII. Rights of the person concerned

1. Right to information

You can ask the responsible person to confirm whether personal data concerning you will be processed by us.

If such processing has taken place, you may request the following information from the person responsible:

(1) the purposes for which the personal data is processed;

(2) the categories of personal data processed;

(3) the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data concerning you has been or will be disclosed to;

(4) the planned duration of the storage of the personal data concerning you or, if specific information on this is not available, the criteria for determining the storage period;

(5) the existence of a right to have your personal data concerning you corrected or deleted, a right to have processing restricted by the data controller or a right to object to such processing;

(6) the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;

(7) any available information on the origin of the data if the personal data was not collected from the person concerned;

(8) the existence of automated decision making including profiling in accordance with Art. 22 para. 1 and 4 DSGVO and - at least in these cases - meaningful information on the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the person concerned.

You have the right to request information as to whether the personal data concerning you will be transferred to a third country or to an international organization. In this context, you may request to be informed about the appropriate warranties in accordance with Art. 46 DSGVO in connection with the transmission.

2. Right to correction

You have a right of rectification and/or completion vis-à-vis the data controller if the personal data processed concerning you is incorrect or incomplete. The person responsible shall make the correction without delay.

3. Right to limitation of processing

Under the following conditions, you may request that the processing of personal data concerning you be restricted:

(1) if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period of time that enables the person responsible to verify the accuracy of the personal data;

(2) the processing is unlawful and you refuse to delete the personal data and instead request that the use of the personal data be restricted;

(3) the person responsible no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you do need them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or

(4) if you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the person responsible outweigh your reasons.

If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data may only be processed - apart from being stored - with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending rights or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on grounds of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State.

If the processing restriction has been restricted according to the above conditions, you will be informed by the person responsible before the restriction is lifted.

4. Right to deletion

Deletion obligation

You may request the person responsible to delete the personal data relating to you immediately. The person responsible is then obliged to delete this data immediately if one of the following reasons applies:

(1) The personal data concerning you is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.

(2) You revoke your consent, on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a or Art. 9 para 2 lit. a DSGVO, and there is no other legal basis for processing.

(3) You file an objection against the data processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or file an objection pursuant to Art. 21 para. 2 DSGVO.

(4) The personal data concerning you has been processed unlawfully.

(5) The deletion of personal data concerning you is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the data controller is subject.

(6) The personal data concerning you have been collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Art. 8 para. 1 DSGVO.

Information to third parties

If the person responsible has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged to delete them pursuant to Art. 17 para. 1 DSGVO, he shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform those responsible for data processing who process the personal data, that you as the person concerned have requested the deletion of all links to this personal data or of copies or replications of this personal data.

Exceptions

Right to erasure does not exist as long as processing is necessary

(1) to exercise the liberty to freedom of expression and information;

(2) to fulfil a legal obligation that requires processing according to the law of the union or of the member states, to which the responsible person is subject to, or to exercise a duty for public benefit or in the exercise of public authority, which has been delegated to the person responsible;

(3) for reasons of public interest in the field of public health, in accordance with Art. 9, paragraph 2, lit. h and i, as well as Art. 9, paragraph 3 GDPR;

(4) for archival purposes in public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes, according to Art. 89, section 1 GDPR, as far as the law referred to in section (a) is likely to render reaching the targets of this processing impossible, or seriously affect them, or

(5) to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

5. Right to information

If you exercise the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing towards the person responsible, he/she is obliged to communicate this correction or deletion of data or restriction of processing to all recipients to whom your personal data has been disclosed, unless this proves to be impossible or involves disproportionate efforts.

With respect to the person responsible, you have the right to be informed about these recipients.

6. Right to data portability

You have the right to receive personal data that you have provided to the person responsible, in a structured, common and machine-readable format. In addition, you also have the right to transfer this data to another person to whom you had provided the personal data, without hindrance from the person responsible, provided that

(1) the processing upon consent according to Art. 6, section 1, lit. a GDPR or Art. 9, section 2, lit. a GDPR or on a contract according to Art. 6, section 1, lit. b GDPR and

(2) the processing is done using automated procedures.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to transfer your personal data directly from one person responsible to another, insofar as this is technically feasible. Freedom and rights of other persons may not be affected.

The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data which is necessary for performing a task, which is in public interest, or in exercising public authority, which has been delegated to the person responsible.

7. Right to data portability

For reasons arising from your particular situation, you have the right to take objection against processing of your personal data at any time, on the basis of Art. 6, section 1, lit. e or f GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The controller will no longer process personal data concerning you, unless he demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for processing, that outweigh your interests, rights and freedom, or the processing is intended to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If the personal data relating to you is processed for direct advertising purposes, you have the right to object at any time against the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising.

If you object to processing for direct advertising purposes, your personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.

Regardless of policy 2002/58/EG, you have the option, in the context of the use of information society services, to exercise your right to object through automated procedures that use technical specifications.

8. Right to revoke data protection consent

You have the right to revoke your data protection consent at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the legality of processing carried out on the basis of the consent, until revocation.

9. Automated decision on an individual basis, including profiling

You have the right not to be subjected to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, that will have a legal effect or that will affect you in a similar manner. This does not apply, if the decision

(1) is required for the conclusion or completion of a contract between you and the person responsible,

(2) is permissible due to the statutory provisions of the union or of the member states, to which the person responsible is subject to, and these statutory provisions contain appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedom, as well as your legitimate interests, or

(3) has been taken with your explicit consent.

However, these decisions may not apply to specific categories of personal data, according to Art. 9, section 1 GDPR, as long as Art. 9, section 2, lit. a or g GDPR does not apply and reasonable measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedom as well as your legitimate interests.

With respect to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the person responsible shall take appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedom and legitimate interests, including at least the right to influence a person by the person responsible, to express his/her own point of view and challenge the decision.

10. Right to complain to an inspecting authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial appeal, you have the right to complain to an inspecting authority, in particular in the member state of the place of residence, employment or the place of alleged infringement, if you believe that the processing of your personal data is against the GDPR.

The inspecting authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial appeal by type. 78 GDPR.
