We are delighted by your interest in our company. Data protection is of great importance to LEVETO GmbH. The use of the Internet pages of LEVETO GmbH is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special services of our enterprise via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to LEVETO GmbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use, and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration.

As the controller, LEVETO GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions can always be vulnerable to security risks, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

1. Definitions

The data protection declaration of LEVETO GmbH is based on the terms used by the European Directive and Ordinance when issuing the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.

Among others, we use the following terms in this privacy policy:

a) Personal data

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "data subject"). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier, or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural, or social identity of that natural person.

d) Restriction of processing

Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.

e) Profiling

Profiling is any form of automated processing of personal data that involves the use of such data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular, to analyze or predict aspects concerning their performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location, or movements.

f) Pseudonymization

Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

g) Controller or data controller

The controller, or data controller, is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body that, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. If the purposes and means of this processing are determined by Union law or the law of the Member States, the controller, or the specific criteria for its nomination, may be provided for by Union law or the law of the Member States.

A recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not a third party. However, public authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation mandate under Union or Member State law shall not be considered recipients.

j) Third

Third-party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor, and the persons authorized to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.

k) Consent

3. Cookies

The internet pages of LEVETO GmbH use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored on a computer system through an Internet browser.

Numerous websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters by which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified via the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, LEVETO GmbH can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

By using a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized for the user's benefit. Cookies allow us, as mentioned before, to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to enter their access data again each time they visit the website, as this is taken care of by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.

You can find all the information around the cookies used at: Cookie Policy

4. Collection of general data and information

The website of LEVETO GmbH collects a series of general data and information with each call-up of the website by a data subject or automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following data may be collected: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (the so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, LEVETO GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed (1) to deliver the contents of our website correctly, (2) to optimize the contents of our website and the advertising for these, (3) to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. Therefore, LEVETO GmbH analyzes anonymously collected data and information on one hand, and on the other hand, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise so that we can ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.

5. Registration on our website

The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the data controller by providing personal data. The personal data transmitted to the data controller is determined by the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject is collected and stored solely for internal use by the data controller and for its own purposes. The data controller may arrange for the transfer of data to one or more data processors, such as a specialized company, which also uses personal data exclusively for internal use attributable to the data controller.

By registering on the website of the data controller, the IP address assigned by the internet service provider (ISP) to the data subject, as well as the date and time of registration, are also stored. The storage of this data is done with the aim of preventing misuse of our services and, if necessary, enabling the investigation of committed offenses. Therefore, the storage of this data is necessary to protect the data controller. Generally, this data is not disclosed to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to do so or the disclosure serves law enforcement purposes.

The registration of the data subject by voluntarily providing personal data serves the purpose of the controller to offer the data subject content or services which, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to modify the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have it completely deleted from the data stock of the controller.

The controller shall provide any data subject at any time, upon request, with information about what personal data is stored about the data subject. Furthermore, the controller shall correct or delete personal data at the request or indication of the data subject, provided that this does not conflict with any statutory retention obligations. The entire staff of the controller shall be available to the data subject as contact persons in this context.

6. Contact possibility via the website

Based on statutory provisions, the website of LEVETO GmbH contains data that enable quick electronic contact with our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or by using a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be stored automatically. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the controller will be stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. No disclosure of this personal data to third parties will take place.

7. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

The controller shall process and store personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or where provided for by the European Directive and Regulation or other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.

If the purpose of storage no longer applies or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation or another competent legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

8. Rights of the data subject

a) Right to confirmation

Every data subject has the right, granted by the European Directive and the Regulation, to obtain confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data concerning them are being processed. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right, they may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.

b) Right to information

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to obtain at any time from the controller, free of charge, information about the personal data stored about him or her and a copy of that information. Furthermore, the European Directive and Regulation has granted the data subject access to the following information:

  • the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, pursuant to Article 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR, and, at least in those cases, meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and the envisaged consequences of such processing for the data subject.

Furthermore, the data subject shall have the right to obtain information as to whether personal data have been transferred to a third country or to an international organization. If this is the case, the data subject also has the right to obtain information about the appropriate safeguards in connection with the transfer.

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of access, they may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.

c) Right to rectification

Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to demand the immediate rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning them. Furthermore, the data subject has the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data - also by means of a supplementary declaration - taking into account the purposes of the processing.

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to rectify, they may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.

d) Right to erasure (right to be forgotten)

Any person whose personal data is being processed has the right, granted by the European legislator, to request the immediate deletion of their personal data from the data controller, if one of the following reasons applies and provided that the processing is not necessary:

  • Personal data were collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which they are no longer necessary.
  • The data subject revokes the consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) of the GDPR or Art. 9(2)(a) of the GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
  • The data subject objects, pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR, to the processing, and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects, pursuant to Article 21(2) of the GDPR, to the processing.
  • The personal data has been processed unlawfully.
  • The deletion of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
  • The personal data was collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Art. 8 (1) of the GDPR.

If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to arrange for the deletion of personal data stored by LEVETO GmbH, they may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller. The employee of LEVETO GmbH shall arrange for the erasure request to be complied with immediately.

If personal data has been disclosed by LEVETO GmbH and our company, as the data controller under Article 17(1) of the GDPR, is obliged to delete the personal data, LEVETO GmbH will take reasonable measures, including technical measures, taking into account available technology and implementation costs, to inform other data controllers processing the disclosed personal data that the data subject has requested the erasure of all links to, or copies or replications of, that personal data. This will be done by the employee of LEVETO GmbH on a case-by-case basis.

e) Right to restriction of processing

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, to obtain from the controller the restriction of processing if one of the following conditions is met:

  • If the accuracy of personal data is contested by the data subject, it will be disputed for a period that allows the data controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
  • The processing is unlawful, the data subject objects to the erasure of the personal data and requests instead the restriction of the use of the personal data.
  • The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but the data subject needs it for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
  • The data subject has objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.

If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by LEVETO GmbH, they may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller. The employee of LEVETO GmbH will arrange the restriction of the processing.

f) Right to data portability

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, to receive the personal data concerning them, which has been provided by the data subject to a controller, in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format. They also have the right to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data have been provided, provided that the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR or Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR and the processing is carried out by automated means unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

Furthermore, when exercising his or her right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject shall have the right to obtain that the personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, to the extent that this is technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other individuals.

To exercise the right to data portability, the data subject can contact an employee of LEVETO GmbH at any time.

g) Right of objection

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to object at any time, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The LEVETO GmbH shall no longer process the personal data in the event of an objection unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights, and freedoms of the data subject, or for the assertion, exercise, or defense of legal claims.

If LEVETO GmbH processes personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data processed for such marketing. This also applies to the profiling, as it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to the processing for direct marketing purposes, LEVETO GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to their particular situation, to object to the processing of personal data concerning them which is carried out by the LEVETO GmbH for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.

In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may directly contact any employee of LEVETO GmbH or another employee. The data subject is also free to exercise their right to object in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.

h) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling

Any data subject concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right, granted by the European Directive and the Regulation, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning them or similarly significantly affects them, unless the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is permitted by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and that law contains suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is based on the data subject's explicit consent.

If the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or (2) it is based on the explicit consent of the data subject, the LEVETO GmbH will take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the data controller, to express their own point of view, and to contest the decision.

If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated decisions, they may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.

i) Right to revoke consent under data protection law

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to withdraw consent to the processing of personal data at any time.

If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw the consent, they may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.

9. Data protection during applications and the application process

The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application procedure. The processing may also take place electronically. This is the case, in particular, when an applicant submits relevant application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example, by e-mail or via a web form located on the website. If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller conflict with such deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

10. Privacy policy on the use and application of Facebook

The controller has integrated components of the Facebook company on this website. Facebook is a social network.

A social network is an online platform where users can interact and communicate with each other in a virtual space. It serves as a social meeting point and an online community on the Internet. Social networks provide users with the ability to exchange opinions, experiences, and information either personally or related to businesses. Facebook, for example, allows users to create personal profiles, upload photos, and connect with others through friend requests.

The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. If a data subject lives outside the USA or Canada, the controller of personal data is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Each time an individual page of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) is integrated, is accessed, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Facebook component to download a display of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook. A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=de_DE. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Facebook receives knowledge of which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes which specific subpage of our website the data subject is visiting each time the data subject calls up our website and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject activates one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the "Like" button, or if the data subject makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and stores this personal data.

Facebook always receives information via the Facebook component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged into Facebook at the same time as calling up our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Facebook, they can prevent the transmission by logging out of their Facebook account before accessing our website.

The data policy published by Facebook, which is available at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing, and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains which setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, various applications are available that make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Such applications can be used by the data subject to suppress data transmission to Facebook.

For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by Facebook, as well as about related rights and settings options to protect your privacy, please refer to Facebook's privacy policy, which is available at https://www.facebook.com/ads/website_custom_audiences/ and https://www.facebook.com/privacy/explanation. If you wish to object to the use of Facebook, use this link to opt out at https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads.

12. Privacy policy on the use and application of Google AdSense

The controller has integrated Google AdSense on this website. Google AdSense is an online service that enables the placement of advertisements on third-party sites. Google AdSense is based on an algorithm that selects the advertisements displayed on third-party sites to match the content of the respective third-party site. Google AdSense allows an interest-based targeting of Internet users, which is implemented by generating individual user profiles.

The operating company of the Google AdSense component is Alphabet Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of the Google AdSense component is the integration of advertisements on our website. Google-AdSense sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Alphabet Inc. is enabled to analyze the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website operated by the data controller is called up, on which a Google AdSense component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data subject's information technology system is automatically triggered by the respective Google AdSense component to transmit data to Alphabet Inc. for the purpose of online advertising and commission accounting. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Alphabet Inc. obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Alphabet Inc. uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission settlements.

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

Google AdSense also uses so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in Internet pages to enable log file recording and log file analysis, whereby a statistical evaluation can be performed. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, the Alphabet Inc. may see if and when a website was opened by a data subject, and which links were clicked by the data subject. Among other things, tracking pixels are used to evaluate the flow of visitors to a website.

Via Google AdSense, personal data and information, which also includes the IP address and is necessary for the collection and billing of the displayed advertisements, is transferred to Alphabet Inc. in the United States of America. This personal data is stored and processed in the United States of America. Alphabet Inc. may disclose this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.

Google AdSense is explained in more detail at this link: https://www.google.de/intl/de/adsense/start/

13. Privacy policy on the use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

The data controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, compilation, and analysis of data about the behavior of website users. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data on which website an individual came to a website from (so-called referrers), which subpages of the website were accessed, or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is predominantly used for the optimization of a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The data controller uses the addition "_gat" for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is shortened and anonymized by Google if access to our Internet pages takes place from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us showing the activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.

Google Analytics sets a cookie on the information technology system of the user. What cookies are has already been explained above. By enabling cookies, Google is able to analyze the use of our website. By each call of one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the internet browser automatically transmits data to Google for the purpose of online analysis on the information technology system of the subject. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission calculations.

Personal information, such as access time, the location from which an access originated, and the frequency of visits to our website by the individual concerned, is stored using cookies. Each time the data subject visits our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected via the technical procedure to third parties.

An individual can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as described above, at any time by adjusting the settings of the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such browser settings would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the individual's information technology system. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the individual has the option to object to the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and related to the use of this website as well as to the processing of this data by Google and to prevent it. For this purpose, the user must download and install a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information regarding visits to Internet pages may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google as an objection. If the user's information technology system is deleted, formatted, or reinstalled at a later point in time, the individual must reinstall the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the user themself or another person within the user's control, it is possible to reinstall or reactivate the browser add-on.

Further information and the applicable Google privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail at this link: https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.

14. Privacy policy on the use and application of Google Remarketing

The controller has integrated Google Remarketing services on this website. Google Remarketing is a function of Google AdWords that allows a company to display advertisements to Internet users who have previously visited the company's website. The integration of Google Remarketing thus allows a company to create user-related advertising and consequently to display interest-relevant advertisements to the Internet user.

The operating company of the Google Remarketing services is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of Google Remarketing is to display interest-based advertising. Google Remarketing allows us to show advertisements across the Google advertising network or on other websites that are tailored to the individual needs and interests of Internet users.

Google Remarketing sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to recognize the visitor to our website when the visitor subsequently visits websites that are also members of the Google advertising network. Each time a website is accessed on which the Google Remarketing service has been integrated, the Internet browser of the person concerned automatically identifies itself to Google. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address or the user's surfing behavior, which Google uses, among other things, to display interest-relevant advertising.

Personal information, such as the websites visited by the individual concerned, is stored using cookies. Each time the data subject visits our website, personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected via the technical procedure to third parties.

An individual can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as described above, at any time by adjusting the settings of the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such browser settings would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the individual's information technology system. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the data subject has the option to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, the data subject must call up the link: www.google.de/settings/ads from any of the internet browsers they use and make the desired settings there.

15. Privacy policy on the use and application of Google AdWords

The controller has integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to place ads in Google's search engine results as well as in the Google advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to specify certain keywords in advance, by means of which an ad is displayed in Google's search engine results exclusively when the user retrieves a keyword-relevant search result using the search engine. In the Google advertising network, the ads are distributed to topic-relevant websites by means of an automatic algorithm and in compliance with the previously defined keywords.

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

The purpose of Google AdWords is to promote our website by displaying interest-based advertisements on third-party websites and in the search engine results of Google, as well as displaying third-party advertisements on our website.

If a data subject accesses our website via a Google ad, a so-called conversion cookie is stored by Google on the data subject's information technology system. What cookies are has already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and is not used to identify the data subject. The conversion cookie is used to track whether certain subpages, for example, the shopping cart from an online store system, have been called up on our website, provided that the cookie has not yet expired. Through the conversion cookie, both we and Google can track whether a data subject who has accessed our website via an AdWords ad has generated a sale, i.e. has completed or cancelled a purchase of goods.

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie are used by Google to create visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are in turn used by us to determine the total number of users who were 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 advertisers of Google AdWords receive information from Google by means of which the data subject could be identified.

Personal information, such as the websites visited by the individual concerned, is stored using conversion cookies. Each time the data subject visits our website, personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected via the technical procedure to third parties.

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

Furthermore, the data subject has the option to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, the data subject must call up the link: www.google.de/settings/ads from any of the internet browsers they use and make the desired settings there.

Further information and the applicable Google privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

The legal basis for the use of this service is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f of the GDPR. If you wish to object to interest-based advertising by Google marketing services, you can use the settings and opt-out options provided by Google: http://www.google.com/ads/preferences.

16. Privacy policy on the use and application of Google Fonts

This website uses Google Fonts from Google Inc. Google Fonts is used to display text and fonts provided by Google. So that these fonts can be provided for a large number of pages, they are provided by Google on their servers when the page is called up. When using Google Fonts, the user's IP address is transmitted to Google's servers when the page is called up and the information on the fonts used is transferred. This may result in a data transfer to Google's servers in the USA. The information about the fonts is stored in the browser's cache.

We integrate Google Fonts to make our website more appealing and visually consistent. The legal basis for the data collection is Art 6 I 1 f) of the GDPR. Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

17. Adobe Typekit web fonts

For the uniform display of certain fonts on our website, we use so-called web fonts from Adobe Typekit. The provider of these web fonts is Adobe Systems Incorporated, 345 Park Avenue, San Jose, CA 95110-2704, USA (also referred to as "Adobe").

When you call up our web pages, your browser loads the required fonts directly from Adobe so that they can be displayed completely and correctly on your end device. In doing so, your browser establishes a connection to Adobe's servers in the USA. Adobe thereby obtains knowledge of your IP address as soon as our website is accessed. According to Adobe, no cookies are stored for the provision of the fonts.

Adobe has certification under the applicable EU-US Privacy Shield.

18. Legal basis of the processing

Article 6 I lit. a of the GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 I lit. b of the GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c of the GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result, their name, age, health insurance data, or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital, or another third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d of the GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f of the GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights, and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47 sentence 2 of the GDPR).

19. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f of the GDPR, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

20. Duration for which the personal data are stored

The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfillment or initiation of the contract.

21. Legal or contractual requirements to provide the personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision

We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before providing personal data, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will explain to the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be.

22. Existence of automated decision making

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
