Cookies and right to object to direct advertising

“Cookies” are small files that are stored on users‘ computers. Different data can be stored within the cookies. A cookie is primarily used to store the information about a user (or the device on which the cookie is stored) during or after the user´s visit to an online offer. Temporary cookies, or “session cookies” or “transient cookies”, are cookies that are deleted after a user leaves an online offer and closes his browser. In such a cookie, for example, the content of a shopping basket in an online shop or a login status can be stored. The term “permanent“ or “persistent“ refers to cookies that remain stored even after the browser has been closed. For example, the login status can be saved if users visit it after several days. Likewise, in such a cookie the interests of the users can be stored, which are used for range measurement or marketing purposes. “Third-party cookies” are cookies that are offered by providers other than the person responsible for operating the online offer (otherwise, if they are only the responsible person´s cookies, they are referred to as “first-party cookies”).

We may use temporary and permanent cookies and clarify this in the context of our privacy policy.

If users do not want cookies to be stored on their computer, they will be asked to deactivate the corresponding  option in their browser’s system settings. Stored cookies can be deleted in the system settings of the browser. The exclusion of cookies can lead to functional restrictions of this online offer.

A general contradiction to the use of cookies used for online marketing purposes can be declared for many of the services, especially in the case of tracking, via the US site http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU site http://www.youronlinechoices.com/. Furthermore, the storage of cookies can be achieved by deactivating them in the browser settings. Please note that in this case not all functions of this online offer can be used.

Deletion of data

The data processed by us will be deleted or their processing restricted in accordance with articles 17 and 18 GDPR. Unless explicitly stated in this privacy policy, the data stored by us will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required for its intended purpose and the deletion does not conflict with any statutory storage obligations.

If the data are not deleted because they are necessary for other and legally permissible purposes, their processing is restricted. This means that the data is blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be retained for commercial or tax reasons.

Changes and updates to the privacy policy

We ask you to inform yourself regularly about the content of our privacy policy. We will adapt the privacy policy as soon as the changes to the data processing carried out by us make this necessary. We will notify you as soon as the changes require your participation (eg consent) or other individual notification.

Comments and contributions

If users leave comments or other contributions, their IP addresses may be stored for 7 days on the basis of our legitimate interests within the meaning of article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. This is done for our safety, if someone leaves illegal contents (insults, forbidden political propaganda, etc.) in comments and contributions.  In this case we can be prosecuted ourselves for the comment or contribution and are therefore interested in the identity of the author.

Furthermore, we reserve the right, on the basis of our legitimate interests pursuant to article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR to process user information for spam detection.

On the same legal basis, in the case of surveys, we reserve the right to store the IP addresses of users for the duration of the surveys and to use cookies in order to avoid multiple votes.

Comment subscriptions

Users may subscribe to follow-up comments with their consent in accordance with article 6 (1) lit. a GDPR. Users will receive a confirmation email to verify that they are the owner of the email address they entered. Users can unsubscribe from ongoing comment subscriptions at any time. The confirmation email will contain information on the cancellation options. For the purpose of providing proof of user consent, we store the login timestamp along with the user’s IP address and delete this information when users unsubscribe from the subscription.

You can cancel the receipt of our subscription at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. We may store the e-mail addresses we have unsubscribed for up to three years on the basis of our legitimate interests before we delete them in order to be able to prove a previously given consent. The processing of these data is limited to the purpose of a possible defence against claims. An individual application for cancellation is possible at any time, provided that at the same time the former existence of a consent is confirmed.

Contacting

When contacting us (e.g. via contact form, e-mail, telephone or via social media), the user’s details are used to process the contact enquiry and to process it in accordance with article 6 (1) lit. b. (within the framework of contractual/pre-contractual relationships), article 6 (1) lit. f. (other inquiries) GDPR.
