Google Analytics (with anonymization function)
On this website we use the web analysis service Google Analytics (with anonymization function) of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the use of our website by visitors. Google as our contract processor, provides us with reports according to Article 28 of the GDPR. With the reports we can display and evaluate the activities on our website.
A Google Analytics cookie is stored on the device you visit our website with. By accessing individual pages of this website, the Google Analytics component automatically transfers the Internet browsers data on your device to Google for online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google receives information about your personal data, information about the browser type/version, operating system used, the page you have previously visited, the host name of the accessing device, IP address and the time of the request, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks. However, this data is not merged with any other data about you. In addition, we use the function whereby Google automatically shortens the IP address of your Internet connection and thus makes it anonymous when you access our website from a member state of the European Union or from another signatory state to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. If, in exceptional cases, data is processed outside the EEA, where there is no data protection level that meets the European standard, this is done based on the EU-US Privacy Shield: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AA

We are interested in providing the most convenient and optimized offer on our website and to operate economically by integrating social plugins and the analyses that are thus possible at the same time.
After activating the plugin, a direct connection to the system of the respective social plugin provider is established via your Internet browser. The content of the social plugin is then transmitted directly to your Internet browser and integrated into our website. At the same time the social plugin transmits the information to the respective social plugin provider that you have called the corresponding page of our Internet presence. This applies regardless of whether you have created a profile with the social plugin provider or logged in or then actively use a social plugin (e. g. by clicking the “I like” button or by making a comment).
With the active use of a social plugin, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your Internet browser to the respective social plugin provider and stored there. As soon as you are logged in at the same time at one of the social plugin providers, they can assign your visit to our website to your account created there. We have no influence on the type and extent of the data collected and transmitted. Details on the scope and purpose of data collection, processing and use can be found in the data protection information of the social plug-in providers. There you can see your rights and setting options to protect your privacy.
If you do not agree to a social plugin provider assigning the data collected through our website to your account, we would ask you to log out of your account with the respective social plugin provider before activating the social plugin.

- Your personal data has been processed unlawfully;
- The deletion of your personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which we are subject.
Please note that your right to cancellation may be restricted by law. These include the restrictions listed in Article 17 of the GDPR and § 35 Federal Data Protection Act of the Republic of Germany (in the version applicable from 25 May 2018).
You have the right to request a restriction of the processes of your personal data if one of the following conditions is met:
- You deny the accuracy of your personal data for a period that enables us to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
- The processing is unlawful, and you refuse to delete the personal data and instead request that the use of your personal data be restricted;
- We no longer need your personal data for the purposes of processing, but you do need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims;
- You have filed an objection against the processing if it is not yet clear whether our justified reasons outweigh yours.
- If you have obtained a restriction on processing as set out above, we will notify you before the restriction is lifted.
- Right of Revocation for Consent
You can revoke your consent given to us at any time with effect for the future. This revocation can take place in the form of an informal message to the above-mentioned contact addresses. This also applies to consents that you have given us before the validity of the GDPR (i.e. before 25 May 2018). If you revoke your consent, the legality of the data processing carried out up to then will not be affected. As a rule, the consequence of a revocation is that you can no longer use our service, in the context of which we have asked you for your consent or can no longer use it in full.
- Right to Data Transferability
You have the right to receive personal data that concerns you and that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format and to transmit this data to others. For details and restrictions, see Article 20 of the GDPR. Exercising this right does not affect your right to cancellation.
- The Right to Appeal to the Supervisory Authority
If you believe that the processing of your data by us violates applicable data protection law, you have the right of complaint to one of the competent supervisory authorities, i.e. the Hamburg Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information or the respective supervisory authority in the member state of your place of residence, your workplace or the place of presumed data protection violation.
- Right to Objection under Article 21 of the GDPR
Article 21 of the GDPR gives you the right to object to the processing of your data at any time for reasons arising from your situation, if we base this processing on legitimate interests in accordance with article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, letter f, of the GDPR. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data, except in two cases:
- We can prove compelling grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms;
- Processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
Even if we process your personal data for direct advertising (e.g. in the context of our
newsletter), you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your data for such advertising. If you object to the processing of your data for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer use your personal data for this purpose.
