General Information about Data Processing

Scope of Personal Data Processing

We process personal data of our users only to the extent necessary for providing a functional website as well as our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users is generally carried out only with the user’s consent. An exception applies in cases where obtaining prior consent is not possible for factual reasons and the processing of data is permitted by legal regulations.


Legal Basis for Processing Personal Data

To the extent that we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing personal data, Article 6(1)(a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

For the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6(1)(b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

If the processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6(1)(c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests, fundamental rights, and freedoms of the data subject, Article 6(1)(f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.


Data Erasure and Storage Duration

The personal data of the data subject will be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Storage may also occur if this is provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws, or other provisions to which the data controller is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a necessity for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract.

Web Analytics through Matomo (Formerly known as PIWIK)
The Scope of Personal Data Processing

We use the open-source software tool Matomo (formerly PIWIK) on our website for analyzing user browsing behavior. The software sets a cookie on the user’s computer (for cookies, please refer to the information provided above). When individual pages of our website are accessed, the following data is stored:

 The first two bytes of the user’s IP address

 The accessed webpage
 The website from which the user arrived at the accessed webpage (Referrer)
 The subpages accessed from the accessed webpage

 The duration of the visit on the webpage
 The frequency of webpage visits
The software exclusively runs on our website’s servers. Storage of user’s personally identifiable information only occurs there. Data is not shared with third parties.

 

The software is configured in a way that IP addresses are not stored in their entirety; instead, the last 2 bytes of the IP address are masked (e.g., 192.168.xxx.xxx). This approach prevents association of the truncated IP address with the accessing machine.

 Legal basis for processing personal data

The legal basis for processing users’ personal data is Article 6(1)(f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).


Purpose of Data Processing

The processing of users’ personal data enables us to analyze the browsing behavior of our users. Through the evaluation of the collected data, we are able to compile information about the usage of individual components of our website. This aids us in continuously enhancing the functionality and user-friendliness of our website. These purposes also align with our legitimate interest in processing data according to Article 6(1)(f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The anonymization of the IP address adequately addresses users’ interest in the protection of their personal data.


The Duration of Storage

The Data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer needed for our recording purposes.


Option to Object and Rectify

Cookies are stored on the user’s computer and transmitted to our site from there. As a result, you, as the user, have full control over the use of cookies. By adjusting settings in your internet browser, you can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies. Already stored cookies can be deleted at any time, including through automated processes. If cookies are disabled for our website, certain functions of the website may not be fully accessible.

You have the right to request information as to whether the personal data concerning you is transferred to a third country or to an international organization. In this context, you can request to be informed about the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Article 46 of the GDPR in connection with the transfer.


Right to Rectification

If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, except for storage, these data may only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or a Member State.

If the restriction of processing has been obtained under the conditions mentioned above, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.


Right to Erasure
Obligation to erase

(1) The personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
(2) You withdraw the consent on which the processing pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR was based, and there is no other legal ground for the processing.

Exceptions
The right to erasure does not apply to the extent that processing is necessary:
(1) for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information;
(2) for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing under the law of the Union or of the Member States to which the controller is subject or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;

(3) for reasons of public interest in the area of public health in accordance with Article 9(2)(h) and (i) and Article 9(3) of the GDPR;
(4) for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes, or statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89(1) of the GDPR, to the extent that the right referred to in section a) is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing, or

(5) for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims.


Right to Notification
If you have exercised the right to rectification, erasure, or restriction of processing vis-à-vis the controller, the controller is obliged to communicate such rectification, erasure, or restriction of processing to each recipient to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort.

You have the right to be informed about these recipients from the controller.


Right to Data Ortability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to the controller, in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, where:

(1) 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
(2) the processing is carried out by automated means.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data concerning you transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible. This right shall not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

 

The right to data portability does not apply to processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.


Right to Object
You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you which is based on Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions.

The controller shall no longer process the personal data concerning you, unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights, and freedoms, or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims.

If the personal data concerning you are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.

If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for such purposes.

You have the possibility to exercise your right to object by automated means using technical specifications in the context of the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.


Right to Withdraw Consent
You have the right to withdraw your consent to data protection at any time. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.


Automated Decision-Making in Individual Cases, including Profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision:

(1) is necessary for entering into or performance of a contract between you and the controller,

(2) is authorized by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or

(3) is based on your explicit consent.

However, these decisions shall not be based on special categories of personal data referred to in Article 9(1) of the GDPR, unless Article 9(2)(a) or (g) of the GDPR applies and suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests are in place.

With regard to cases mentioned in (1) and (3), the controller shall implement appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express your point of view, and to contest the decision.


Right to lodge a Complaint with a Supervisory Authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, your place of work, or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes the GDPR.

 

The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant on the progress and the outcome of the complaint including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Article 78 of the GDPR.
