Article 3 Legal bases in general

The legal basis for the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. This also applies to processing procedures that are necessary to perform pre-contractual measures.

 

If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights, and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail over the first interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as legal basis for processing. This is especially the case when we use tracking to optimize the website.

 

Insofar as the processing of personal data is required for the compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

 

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

 

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as legal basis.

Google Analytics

 

  • This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In case of activation of the IP anonymization, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is transmitted to a server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the website operator Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and Internet usage to the website operator.
  • The IP address transmitted by your browser through Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
  • You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the Internet pages (including your IP address) and from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
  • This website uses Google Analytics with the “_anonymizeIp()” extension. IP addresses are thus processed truncated so that a personal reference can be ruled out.
