Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

We are very delighted that you have shown inte­rest in our enter­prise. Data protec­tion is of a parti­cu­larly high prio­rity for the manage­ment of the Dominik Paunetto Foto­grafie. The use of the Internet pages of the Dominik Paunetto Foto­grafie is possible without any indi­ca­tion of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special enter­prise services via our website, proces­sing of personal data could become necessary. If the proces­sing of personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis for such proces­sing, we gene­rally obtain consent from 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 General Data Protec­tion Regu­la­tion (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protec­tion regu­la­tions appli­cable to the Dominik Paunetto Foto­grafie. By means of this data protec­tion decla­ra­tion, our enter­prise would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Further­more, data subjects are informed, by means of this data protec­tion decla­ra­tion, of the rights to which they are entitled.

As the controller, the Dominik Paunetto Foto­grafie 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 may in principle have secu­rity gaps, so abso­lute protec­tion may not be guaran­teed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alter­na­tive means, e.g. by tele­phone.

1. Defi­ni­tions

The data protec­tion decla­ra­tion of the Dominik Paunetto Foto­grafie is based on the terms used by the European legis­lator for the adop­tion of the General Data Protec­tion Regu­la­tion (GDPR). Our data protec­tion decla­ra­tion should be legible and under­stand­able for the general public, as well as our custo­mers and busi­ness part­ners. To ensure this, we would like to first explain the termi­no­logy used.

  • b) Data subject

    Data subject is any iden­ti­fied or iden­ti­fiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by the controller respon­sible for the proces­sing.

  • d)    Restric­tion of proces­sing

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

  • e)    Profiling

    Profiling means any form of auto­mated proces­sing of personal data consis­ting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects rela­ting to a natural person, in parti­cular to analyse or predict aspects concer­ning that natural person’s perfor­mance at work, economic situa­tion, health, personal prefe­rences, inte­rests, relia­bi­lity, beha­viour, loca­tion or move­ments.

  • f)     Pseud­ony­mi­sa­tion

    Pseud­ony­mi­sa­tion is the proces­sing of personal data in such a manner 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 sepa­r­ately and is subject to tech­nical and orga­ni­sa­tional measures to ensure that the personal data are not attri­buted to an iden­ti­fied or iden­ti­fiable natural person.

  • g)    Controller or controller respon­sible for the proces­sing

    Controller or controller respon­sible for the proces­sing is the natural or legal person, public autho­rity, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, deter­mines the purposes and means of the proces­sing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such proces­sing are deter­mined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomi­na­tion may be provided for by Union or Member State law.

  • h)    Processor

  • i)      Reci­pient

    Reci­pient is a natural or legal person, public autho­rity, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disc­losed, whether a third party or not. However, public autho­ri­ties which may receive personal data in the frame­work of a parti­cular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as reci­pi­ents; the proces­sing of those data by those public autho­ri­ties shall be in compli­ance with the appli­cable data protec­tion rules according to the purposes of the proces­sing.

  • j)      Third party

    Third party is a natural or legal person, public autho­rity, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct autho­rity of the controller or processor, are autho­rised to process personal data.

  • k)    Consent

    Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and unam­bi­guous indi­ca­tion of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a state­ment or by a clear affir­ma­tive action, signi­fies agree­ment to the proces­sing of personal data rela­ting to him or her.

3. Cookies

The Internet pages of the Dominik Paunetto Foto­grafie use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many Internet sites 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 character string through which Internet pages and servers can be assi­gned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited Internet sites and servers to diffe­ren­tiate the indi­vi­dual browser of the dats subject from other Internet brow­sers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be reco­gnized and iden­ti­fied using the unique cookie ID.

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

By means of a cookie, the infor­ma­tion and offers on our website can be opti­mized with the user in mind. Cookies allow us, as previously mentioned, to reco­gnize our website users. The purpose of this reco­gni­tion is to make it easier for users to utilize our website. The website user that uses cookies, e.g. does not have to enter access data each time the website is accessed, because this is taken over by the website, and the cookie is thus stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shop­ping cart in an online shop. The online store remem­bers the arti­cles that a customer has placed in the virtual shop­ping cart via a cookie.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corre­spon­ding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus perman­ently deny the setting of cookies. Further­more, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other soft­ware programs. This is possible in all popular Internet brow­sers. If the data subject deac­tivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all func­tions of our website may be enti­rely usable.

4. Collec­tion of general data and infor­ma­tion

The website of the Dominik Paunetto Foto­grafie collects a series of general data and infor­ma­tion when a data subject or auto­mated system calls up the website. This general data and infor­ma­tion are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the opera­ting system used by the acces­sing system, (3) the website from which an acces­sing system reaches our website (so-called refer­rers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the acces­sing system, and (8) any other similar data and infor­ma­tion that may be used in the event of attacks on our infor­ma­tion tech­no­logy systems.

When using these general data and infor­ma­tion, the Dominik Paunetto Foto­grafie does not draw any conclu­sions about the data subject. Rather, this infor­ma­tion is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) opti­mize the content of our website as well as its adver­ti­se­ment, (3) ensure the long-term viabi­lity of our infor­ma­tion tech­no­logy systems and website tech­no­logy, and (4) provide law enforce­ment autho­ri­ties with the infor­ma­tion necessary for criminal prose­cu­tion in case of a cyber-attack. There­fore, the Dominik Paunetto Foto­grafie analyzes anony­mously collected data and infor­ma­tion statis­ti­cally, with the aim of increa­sing the data protec­tion and data secu­rity of our enter­prise, and to ensure an optimal level of protec­tion for the personal data we process. The anony­mous data of the server log files are stored sepa­r­ately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

5. Contact possi­bi­lity via the website

The website of the Dominik Paunetto Foto­grafie contains infor­ma­tion that enables a quick elec­tronic contact to 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 via a contact form, the personal data trans­mitted by the data subject are auto­ma­ti­cally stored. Such personal data trans­mitted on a volun­tary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purpose of proces­sing or contac­ting the data subject. There is no transfer of this personal data to third parties.

6. Comments func­tion in the blog on the website

The Dominik Paunetto Foto­grafie offers users the possi­bi­lity to leave indi­vi­dual comments on indi­vi­dual blog contri­bu­tions on a blog, which is on the website of the controller. A blog is a web-based, publicly-acces­sible portal, through which one or more people called blog­gers or web-blog­gers may post arti­cles or write down thoughts in so-called blog­posts. Blog­posts may usually be commented by third parties.

If a data subject leaves a comment on the blog published on this website, the comments made by the data subject are also stored and published, as well as infor­ma­tion on the date of the commen­tary and on the user’s (pseud­onym) chosen by the data subject. In addi­tion, the IP address assi­gned by the Internet service provider (ISP) to the data subject is also logged. This storage of the IP address takes place for secu­rity reasons, and in case the data subject violates the rights of third parties, or posts illegal content through a given comment. The storage of these personal data is, there­fore, in the own inte­rest of the data controller, so that he can excul­pate in the event of an infrin­ge­ment. This collected personal data will not be passed to third parties, unless such a transfer is required by law or serves the aim of the defense of the data controller.

7. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legis­lator or other legis­la­tors in laws or regu­la­tions to which the controller is subject to.

If the storage purpose is not appli­cable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legis­lator or another compe­tent legis­lator expires, the personal data are routi­nely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requi­re­ments.

8. Rights of the data subject

An employees of the Dominik Paunetto Foto­grafie will arrange the necessary measures in indi­vi­dual cases.

  • e) Right of restric­tion of proces­sing

    Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legis­lator to obtain from the controller restric­tion of proces­sing where one of the follo­wing applies:

    • The accu­racy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period enab­ling the controller to verify the accu­racy of the personal data.
    • The proces­sing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests instead the restric­tion of their use instead.

    In order to exer­cise the right to object, the data subject may contact any employee of the Dominik Paunetto Foto­grafie. In addi­tion, the data subject is free in the context of the use of infor­ma­tion society services, and notwi­th­stan­ding Direc­tive 2002/58/EC, to use his or her right to object by auto­mated means using tech­nical speci­fi­ca­tions.

  • h) Auto­mated indi­vi­dual decision-making, inclu­ding profiling

    Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legis­lator not to be subject to a decision based solely on auto­mated proces­sing, inclu­ding profiling, which produces legal effects concer­ning him or her, or simi­larly signi­fi­cantly affects him or her, as long as the decision (1) is not is necessary for ente­ring into, or the perfor­mance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) is not autho­rised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safe­guard the data subject’s rights and free­doms and legi­ti­mate inte­rests, or (3) is not based on the data subject’s explicit consent.

    If the decision (1) is necessary for ente­ring into, or the perfor­mance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) it is based on the data subject’s explicit consent, the Dominik Paunetto Foto­grafie shall imple­ment suitable measures to safe­guard the data subject’s rights and free­doms and legi­ti­mate inte­rests, at least the right to obtain human inter­ven­tion on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and contest the decision.

9. Data protec­tion provi­sions about the appli­ca­tion and use of Adobe Analy­tics (Omni­ture) / Adobe marke­ting cloud

On this website, the controller has inte­grated compon­ents of the enter­prise Adobe. Adobe Analy­tics (Omni­ture) and Adobe Marke­ting Cloud (hereinafter referred to as „Omni­ture“) is an instru­ment that allows for more effi­cient online marke­ting and web analysis. Omni­ture is part of Adobe Marke­ting Cloud. Adobe Marke­ting Cloud enables real-time analysis of visitor flows on Internet sites. The real-time analysis includes project reports and allows an ad-hoc analysis of site visi­tors. Customer inter­ac­tions are presented in such a way as to give the controller a better over­view of users‘ online activi­ties of this website by displaying the data in simple and inter­ac­tive dash­boards and conver­ting them into reports. This enables the controller to obtain infor­ma­tion in real-time and to iden­tify problems that occur more quickly.

The opera­ting company for these services is Adobe Systems Soft­ware Ireland Limited, 4-6 River­walk, City­west Busi­ness Campus, Dublin 24, Repu­blic of Ireland.

Omni­ture sets a cookie on the infor­ma­tion tech­no­logy system of the data subject (cookies have already been explained in advance, which may be read above). The controller ensures that the tracking data trans­ferred to the Adobe data center is anony­mized prior to geolo­ca­tion. The anony­mi­za­tion is imple­mented by repla­cing the last part of the IP address. The controller has made server-sided settings, which are used to anony­mize the IP address of the data subject prior to proces­sing for geolo­ca­tion and range measu­rement. Adobe will use the data and infor­ma­tion obtained via our website to analyze the user beha­vior of the data subject on behalf of the controller. Adobe will also use the data to create reports on user activity on our behalf, as well as provide other services to our enter­prise related to the use of our website. The IP address of the data subject is not merged with other personal data by Adobe.

As stated above, the data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corre­spon­ding setting of the Internet browser used, and thus perman­ently deny the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Omni­ture from setting a cookie on the infor­ma­tion tech­no­logy system of the data subject. Cookies may also be deleted by Omni­ture at any time via an Internet browser or other soft­ware programs.

The data subject also has the possi­bi­lity of objec­ting to and preven­ting the collec­tion of data gene­rated by the Adobe cookie on the use of this website and the proces­sing of this data by Adobe. For this purpose, the data subject must click on the opt-out button under the link http://www.adobe.com/de/privacy/opt-out.html, which sets an opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie used for this purpose is placed on the infor­ma­tion tech­no­logy system used by the data subject. If the data subject deletes the cookies from his system, then the data subject must call up the link again and set a new opt-out cookie.

With the setting of the opt-out cookie, however, the possi­bi­lity exists that the websites of the controller are not fully usable anymore by the data subject.

The appli­cable data protec­tion provi­sions of Adobe may be accessed under http://www.adobe.com/privacy.html.

10. Data protec­tion provi­sions about the appli­ca­tion and use of Face­book

On this website, the controller has inte­grated compon­ents of the enter­prise Face­book. Face­book is a social network.

A social network is a place for social meetings on the Internet, an online commu­nity, which usually allows users to commu­ni­cate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network may serve as a plat­form for the exchange of opinions and expe­ri­ences, or enable the Internet commu­nity to provide personal or busi­ness-related infor­ma­tion. Face­book allows social network users to include the crea­tion of private profiles, upload photos, and network through friend requests.

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

With each call-up to one of the indi­vi­dual pages of this Internet website, which is operated by the controller and into which a Face­book compo­nent (Face­book plug-ins) was inte­grated, the web browser on the infor­ma­tion tech­no­logy system of the data subject is auto­ma­ti­cally prompted to down­load display of the corre­spon­ding Face­book compo­nent from Face­book through the Face­book compo­nent. An over­view of all the Face­book Plug-ins may be accessed under https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. During the course of this tech­nical proce­dure, Face­book is made aware of what specific sub-site of our website was visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Face­book, Face­book detects with every call-up to our website by the data subject—and for the entire dura­tion of their stay on our Internet site—which specific sub-site of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This infor­ma­tion is collected through the Face­book compo­nent and asso­ciated with the respec­tive Face­book account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Face­book buttons inte­grated into our website, e.g. the „Like“ button, or if the data subject submits a comment, then Face­book matches this infor­ma­tion with the personal Face­book user account of the data subject and stores the personal data.

Face­book always receives, through the Face­book compo­nent, infor­ma­tion about a visit to our website by the data subject, whenever the data subject is logged in at the same time on Face­book during the time of the call-up to our website. This occurs regard­less of whether the data subject clicks on the Face­book compo­nent or not. If such a trans­mis­sion of infor­ma­tion to Face­book is not desi­rable for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their Face­book account before a call-up to our website is made.

These appli­ca­tions may be used by the data subject to elimi­nate a data trans­mis­sion to Face­book.

11. Data protec­tion provi­sions about the appli­ca­tion and use of Google AdSense

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

The opera­ting company of Google’s AdSense compo­nent is Alphabet Inc., 1600 Amphi­theatre Pkwy, Moun­tain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.

The purpose of Google’s AdSense compo­nent is the inte­gra­tion of adver­ti­se­ments on our website. Google AdSense places a cookie on the infor­ma­tion tech­no­logy system of the data subject. The defi­ni­tion of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Alphabet Inc. is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the indi­vi­dual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google AdSense compo­nent is inte­grated, the Internet browser on the infor­ma­tion tech­no­logy system of the data subject will auto­ma­ti­cally submit data through the Google AdSense compo­nent for the purpose of online adver­ti­sing and the sett­le­ment of commis­sions to Alphabet Inc. During the course of this tech­nical proce­dure, the enter­prise Alphabet Inc. gains know­ledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Alphabet Inc., inter alia, to under­stand the origin of visi­tors and clicks and subse­quently create commis­sion sett­le­ments.

The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corre­spon­ding adjust­ment of the web browser used and thus perman­ently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjust­ment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Alphabet Inc. from setting a cookie on the infor­ma­tion tech­no­logy system of the data subject. Addi­tio­nally, cookies already in use by Alphabet Inc. may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other soft­ware programs.

Further­more, Google AdSense also uses so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a minia­ture graphic that is embedded in web pages to enable a log file recording and a log file analysis through which a statis­tical analysis may be performed. Based on the embedded tracking pixels, Alphabet Inc. is able to deter­mine if and when a website was opened by a data subject, and which links were clicked on by the data subject. Tracking pixels serve, inter alia, to analyze the flow of visi­tors on a website.

Through Google AdSense, personal data and information—which also includes the IP address, and is necessary for the collec­tion and accoun­ting of the displayed advertisements—is trans­mitted to Alphabet Inc. in the United States of America. These personal data will be stored and processed in the United States of America. The Alphabet Inc. may disc­lose the collected personal data through this tech­nical proce­dure to third parties.

Google AdSense is further explained under the follo­wing link https://www.google.com/intl/en/adsense/start/.

12. Data protec­tion provi­sions about the appli­ca­tion and use of Google Analy­tics (with anony­mi­za­tion func­tion)

On this website, the controller has inte­grated the compo­nent of Google Analy­tics (with the anony­mizer func­tion). Google Analy­tics is a web analy­tics service. Web analy­tics is the collec­tion, gathe­ring, and analysis of data about the beha­vior of visi­tors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what dura­tion a sub-page was viewed. Web analy­tics are mainly used for the opti­mi­za­tion of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet adver­ti­sing.

The operator of the Google Analy­tics compo­nent is Google Inc., 1600 Amphi­theatre Pkwy, Moun­tain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.

For the web analy­tics through Google Analy­tics the controller uses the appli­ca­tion „_gat. _anonymizeIp“. By means of this appli­ca­tion the IP address of the Internet connec­tion of the data subject is abridged by Google and anony­mised when acces­sing our websites from a Member State of the European Union or another Contrac­ting State to the Agree­ment on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analy­tics compo­nent is to analyze the traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and infor­ma­tion, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide online reports, which show the activi­ties on our websites, and to provide other services concer­ning the use of our Internet site for us.

Google Analy­tics places a cookie on the infor­ma­tion tech­no­logy system of the data subject. The defi­ni­tion of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the indi­vi­dual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google Analy­tics compo­nent was inte­grated, the Internet browser on the infor­ma­tion tech­no­logy system of the data subject will auto­ma­ti­cally submit data through the Google Analy­tics compo­nent for the purpose of online adver­ti­sing and the sett­le­ment of commis­sions to Google. During the course of this tech­nical proce­dure, the enter­prise Google gains know­ledge of personal infor­ma­tion, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to under­stand the origin of visi­tors and clicks, and subse­quently create commis­sion sett­le­ments.

The cookie is used to store personal infor­ma­tion, such as the access time, the loca­tion from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website by the data subject. With each visit to our Internet site, such personal data, inclu­ding the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, will be trans­mitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the tech­nical proce­dure to third parties.

The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corre­spon­ding adjust­ment of the web browser used and thus perman­ently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjust­ment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google Analy­tics from setting a cookie on the infor­ma­tion tech­no­logy system of the data subject. In addi­tion, cookies already in use by Google Analy­tics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other soft­ware programs.

In addi­tion, the data subject has the possi­bi­lity of objec­ting to a collec­tion of data that are gene­rated by Google Analy­tics, which is related to the use of this website, as well as the proces­sing of this data by Google and the chance to preclude any such. For this purpose, the data subject must down­load a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and install it. This browser add-on tells Google Analy­tics through a Java­Script, that any data and infor­ma­tion about the visits of Internet pages may not be trans­mitted to Google Analy­tics. The instal­la­tion of the browser add-ons is consi­dered an objec­tion by Google. If the infor­ma­tion tech­no­logy system of the data subject is later deleted, formatted, or newly installed, then the data subject must reinstall the browser add-ons to disable Google Analy­tics. If the browser add-on was unin­stalled by the data subject or any other person who is attri­bu­table to their sphere of compe­tence, or is disabled, it is possible to execute the reinstal­la­tion or reac­tiva­tion of the browser add-ons.

Further infor­ma­tion and the appli­cable data protec­tion provi­sions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and under http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html.

13. Data protec­tion provi­sions about the appli­ca­tion and use of Google Remar­ke­ting

On this website, the controller has inte­grated Google Remar­ke­ting services. Google Remar­ke­ting is a feature of Google AdWords, which allows an enter­prise to display adver­ti­sing to Internet users who have previously resided on the enterprise’s Internet site. The inte­gra­tion of Google Remar­ke­ting there­fore allows an enter­prise to create user-based adver­ti­sing and thus shows rele­vant adver­ti­se­ments to inte­rested Internet users.

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

The purpose of Google Remar­ke­ting is the inser­tion of inte­rest-rele­vant adver­ti­sing. Google Remar­ke­ting allows us to display ads on the Google network or on other websites, which are based on indi­vi­dual needs and matched to the inte­rests of Internet users.

Google Remar­ke­ting sets a cookie on the infor­ma­tion tech­no­logy system of the data subject. The defi­ni­tion of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Google enables a reco­gni­tion of the visitor of our website if he calls up conse­cu­tive web pages, which are also a member of the Google adver­ti­sing network. With each call-up to an Internet site on which the service has been inte­grated by Google Remar­ke­ting, the web browser of the data subject iden­ti­fies auto­ma­ti­cally with Google. During the course of this tech­nical proce­dure, Google receives personal infor­ma­tion, such as the IP address or the surfing beha­viour of the user, which Google uses, inter alia, for the inser­tion of inte­rest rele­vant adver­ti­sing.

The cookie is used to store personal infor­ma­tion, e.g. the Internet pages visited by the data subject. Each time we visit our Internet pages, personal data, inclu­ding the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, is trans­mitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the tech­nical proce­dure to third parties.

The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corre­spon­ding adjust­ment of the web browser used and thus perman­ently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjust­ment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the infor­ma­tion tech­no­logy system of the data subject. In addi­tion, cookies already in use by Google may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other soft­ware programs.

In addi­tion, the data subject has the possi­bi­lity of objec­ting to the inte­rest-based adver­ti­sing by Google. For this purpose, the data subject must call up the link to www.google.de/settings/ads and make the desired settings on each Internet browser used by the data subject.

14. Data protec­tion provi­sions about the appli­ca­tion and use of Google+

On this website, the controller has inte­grated the Google+ button as a compo­nent. Google+ is a so-called social network. A social network is a social meeting place on the Internet, an online commu­nity, which usually allows users to commu­ni­cate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network may serve as a plat­form for the exchange of opinions and expe­ri­ences, or enable the Internet commu­nity to provide personal or busi­ness-related infor­ma­tion. Google+ allows users of the social network to include the crea­tion of private profiles, upload photos and network through friend requests.

The opera­ting company of Google+ is Google Inc., 1600 Amphi­theatre Pkwy, Moun­tain View, CA 94043-1351, UNITED STATES.

With each call-up to one of the indi­vi­dual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Google+ button has been inte­grated, the Internet browser on the infor­ma­tion tech­no­logy system of the data subject auto­ma­ti­cally down­loads a display of the corre­spon­ding Google+ button of Google through the respec­tive Google+ button compo­nent. During the course of this tech­nical proce­dure, Google is made aware of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject. More detailed infor­ma­tion about Google+ is avail­able under https://developers.google.com/+/.

If the data subject is logged in at the same time to Google+, Google reco­gnizes with each call-up to our website by the data subject and for the entire dura­tion of his or her stay on our Internet site, which specific sub-pages of our Internet page were visited by the data subject. This infor­ma­tion is collected through the Google+ button and Google matches this with the respec­tive Google+ account asso­ciated with the data subject.

If the data subject clicks on the Google+ button inte­grated on our website and thus gives a Google+ 1 recom­men­da­tion, then Google assigns this infor­ma­tion to the personal Google+ user account of the data subject and stores the personal data. Google stores the Google+ 1 recom­men­da­tion of the data subject, making it publicly avail­able in accordance with the terms and condi­tions accepted by the data subject in this regard. Subse­quently, a Google+ 1 recom­men­da­tion given by the data subject on this website toge­ther with other personal data, such as the Google+ account name used by the data subject and the stored photo, is stored and processed on other Google services, such as search-engine results of the Google search engine, the Google account of the data subject or in other places, e.g. on Internet pages, or in rela­tion to adver­ti­se­ments. Google is also able to link the visit to this website with other personal data stored on Google. Google further records this personal infor­ma­tion with the purpose of impro­ving or opti­mi­zing the various Google services.

Through the Google+ button, Google receives infor­ma­tion that the data subject visited our website, if the data subject at the time of the call-up to our website is logged in to Google+. This occurs regard­less of whether the data subject clicks or doesn’t click on the Google+ button.

If the data subject does not wish to transmit personal data to Google, he or she may prevent such trans­mis­sion by logging out of his Google+ account before calling up our website.

Further infor­ma­tion and the data protec­tion provi­sions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/. More refe­rences from Google about the Google+ 1 button may be obtained under https://developers.google.com/+/web/buttons-policy.

15. Data protec­tion provi­sions about the appli­ca­tion and use of Google-AdWords

On this website, the controller has inte­grated Google AdWords. Google AdWords is a service for Internet adver­ti­sing that allows the adver­tiser to place ads in Google search engine results and the Google adver­ti­sing network. Google AdWords allows an adver­tiser to pre-define specific keywords with the help of which an ad on Google’s search results only then displayed, when the user utilizes the search engine to retrieve a keyword-rele­vant search result. In the Google Adver­ti­sing Network, the ads are distri­buted on rele­vant web pages using an auto­matic algo­rithm, taking into account the previously defined keywords.

The opera­ting company of Google AdWords is Google Inc., 1600 Amphi­theatre Pkwy, Moun­tain View, CA 94043-1351, UNITED STATES.

The purpose of Google AdWords is the promo­tion of our website by the inclu­sion of rele­vant adver­ti­sing on the websites of third parties and in the search engine results of the search engine Google and an inser­tion of third-party adver­ti­sing on our website.

If a data subject reaches our website via a Google ad, a conver­sion cookie is filed on the infor­ma­tion tech­no­logy system of the data subject through Google. The defi­ni­tion of cookies is explained above. A conver­sion cookie loses its vali­dity after 30 days and is not used to iden­tify the data subject. If the cookie has not expired, the conver­sion cookie is used to check whether certain sub-pages, e.g, the shop­ping cart from an online shop system, were called up on our website. Through the conver­sion cookie, both Google and the controller can under­stand whether a person who reached an AdWords ad on our website gene­rated sales, that is, executed or canceled a sale of goods.

The data and infor­ma­tion collected through the use of the conver­sion cookie is used by Google to create visit statis­tics for our website. These visit statis­tics are used in order to deter­mine the total number of users who have been served through AdWords ads to ascer­tain the success or failure of each AdWords ad and to opti­mize our AdWords ads in the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords adver­ti­sers receive infor­ma­tion from Google that could iden­tify the data subject.

The conver­sion cookie stores personal infor­ma­tion, e.g. the Internet pages visited by the data subject. Each time we visit our Internet pages, personal data, inclu­ding the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, is trans­mitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the tech­nical proce­dure to third parties.

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

The data subject has a possi­bi­lity of objec­ting to the inte­rest based adver­ti­se­ment of Google. There­fore, the data subject must access from each of the brow­sers in use the link www.google.de/settings/ads and set the desired settings.

YouTube allows you to publish all kinds of videos, so you can access both full movies and TV broad­casts, as well as music videos, trai­lers, and videos made by users via the Internet portal.

The opera­ting company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, UNITED STATES. The YouTube, LLC is a subsi­diary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphi­theatre Pkwy, Moun­tain View, CA 94043-1351, UNITED STATES.

With each call-up to one of the indi­vi­dual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which a YouTube compo­nent (YouTube video) was inte­grated, the Internet browser on the infor­ma­tion tech­no­logy system of the data subject is auto­ma­ti­cally prompted to down­load a display of the corre­spon­ding YouTube compo­nent. Further infor­ma­tion about YouTube may be obtained under https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/en/. During the course of this tech­nical proce­dure, YouTube and Google gain know­ledge of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in on YouTube, YouTube reco­gnizes with each call-up to a sub-page that contains a YouTube video, which specific sub-page of our Internet site was visited by the data subject. This infor­ma­tion is collected by YouTube and Google and assi­gned to the respec­tive YouTube account of the data subject.

YouTube and Google will receive infor­ma­tion through the YouTube compo­nent that the data subject has visited our website, if the data subject at the time of the call to our website is logged in on YouTube; this occurs regard­less of whether the person clicks on a YouTube video or not. If such a trans­mis­sion of this infor­ma­tion to YouTube and Google is not desi­rable for the data subject, the deli­very may be prevented if the data subject logs off from their own YouTube account before a call-up to our website is made.

YouTube’s data protec­tion provi­sions, avail­able at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/, provide infor­ma­tion about the collec­tion, proces­sing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.

21. Legal basis for the proces­sing

Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for proces­sing opera­tions for 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 party, as is the case, for example, when proces­sing opera­tions are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the proces­sing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such proces­sing opera­tions which are necessary for carrying out pre-contrac­tual measures, for example in the case of inqui­ries concer­ning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obli­ga­tion by which proces­sing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfill­ment of tax obli­ga­tions, the proces­sing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the proces­sing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital inte­rests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital infor­ma­tion would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the proces­sing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, proces­sing opera­tions could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for proces­sing opera­tions which are not covered by any of the above­men­tioned legal grounds, if 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 or funda­mental rights and free­doms of the data subject which require protec­tion of personal data. Such proces­sing opera­tions are parti­cu­larly permis­sible because they have been speci­fi­cally mentioned by the European legis­lator. He consi­dered that a legi­ti­mate inte­rest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

22. The legi­ti­mate inte­rests pursued by the controller or by a third party

Where the proces­sing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legi­ti­mate inte­rest is to carry out our busi­ness in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the share­hol­ders.

23. Period for which the personal data will be stored

The criteria used to deter­mine the period of storage of personal data is the respec­tive statutory reten­tion period. After expi­ra­tion of that period, the corre­spon­ding data is routi­nely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfill­ment of the contract or the initia­tion of a contract.

24. Provi­sion of personal data as statutory or contrac­tual requi­re­ment; Requi­re­ment necessary to enter into a contract; Obli­ga­tion of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible conse­quences of failure to provide such data

We clarify that the provi­sion of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regu­la­tions) or can also result from contrac­tual provi­sions (e.g. infor­ma­tion on the contrac­tual partner). Some­times it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which must subse­quently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provi­sion of the personal data would have the conse­quence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact any employee. The employee clari­fies to the data subject 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 the conse­quences of non-provi­sion of the personal data.

25. Exis­tence of auto­mated decision-making

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