Content and data is publicly viewable. You have choices about the information on your profile. You don’t have to provide additional information on your comment; however,information helps you to get more from our Services.

The comments and the associated data (e.g. IP address) are stored and remain on our website until the commented content has been completely deleted or the comments have to be deleted for legal reasons (e.g. insulting comments).

For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Equally, if you have consented to it, or where there we have a legal obligation to do so or on the basis of our legitimate interests (e.g. when using agents, hosting providers, tax, business and legal advisors, customer care, accounting, billing and similar services that allow us to perform our contractual obligations, administrative tasks and duties efficiently and effectively).

Analytics, Social Media and Marketing

 

Analysis tools

On the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer we use Google Analytics. The information generated about the use of the website by the user is usually transferred to Google and stored there.

 

Google will use this information on our behalf in order to evaluate the use of our website by users, to compile reports on the activities within this website and to provide us with further services associated with the use of this website and the internet. In doing so, pseudonymous user profiles of the users can be created from the processed data.

 

We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymize. This means that the IP address of the user is shortened within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server shortened there.

The IP address transmitted by the user's browser will not be merged with other data. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting their browser software accordingly; users can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and relating to their use of the online offer. 

 

There is an anonymous statistical analysis of page views without the collection of personal data and without the use of cookies.

 

Online presences in social media 

We maintain online presences in social networks and platforms on the basis of our legitimate interests within the meaning of Article 6 lit. f) GDPR and in order to communicate with customers, interested parties and users who are active there. Unless otherwise stated in this policy, we process the data of users if they communicate with us within the social networks and platforms, e.g. write articles on our online presences or send us messages.

 

Social Media Functions and Widgets

Within our online offer, functions and widgets of social networks and platforms are integrated. When you click on or use any of those functions and widgets, your browser establishes a direct connection to  the relevant social networks and platforms. The function or widget then transmits log data to  the relevant social networks and platforms. This log data may contain your IP address, the address of the visited websites, type and settings of the browser, date and time of the request, your usage of  the relevant social networks and platforms, as well as cookies. Those may also include the display of our post, the link to our profile, the possibility to interact with the posts and functions, as well as to measure users reach (so-called conversion measurement).

 

Online marketing

We process personal data for online marketing purposes, which may include, in particular, the marketing of advertising space or the display of promotional and other content (collectively, "content") based on the potential interests of users and the measurement of its effectiveness. 

 

For these purposes, so-called user profiles are created and stored in a file (so-called "cookie") or similar procedures are used, by means of which the information about the user relevant to the presentation of the aforementioned content is stored. This information may include, for example, content viewed, web sites visited, online networks used, but also communication partners and technical information such as the browser used, the device  used and information on usage times. If users have consented to the collection of their location data, this may also be processed.

 

The IP addresses of users are also stored. However, we use available IP masking procedures (i.e. pseudonym by shortening the IP address) to protect users. In general, no clear user data (such as e-mail addresses or names) is stored within the scope of the online marketing process, but pseudonyms. This means that we as well as the providers of the online marketing procedures do not know the actual identity of the users, but only the information stored in their profiles.

 

The information in the profiles is usually stored in the cookies or by means of similar procedures. These cookies can generally also be read later on other web sites that use the same online marketing procedure and analyzed for the purpose of displaying content as well as supplemented with further data and stored on the server of the online marketing procedure provider.

 

Exceptionally, clear data can be assigned to the profiles. This is the case if, for example, the users are members of a social network whose online marketing procedure we use and the network links the users' profiles with the aforementioned data. We ask you to note that users may enter into additional agreements with the providers, e.g. by giving their consent as part of the registration process.

In principle, we only receive access to summarized information about the success of our advertisements. However, within the framework of so-called conversion measurements, we can check which of our online marketing procedures have led to a so-called conversion, i.e., for example, to a conclusion of a contract with us. The conversion measurement is used solely to analyze the success of our marketing measures.

 

Unless otherwise stated, we ask you to assume that cookies used will be stored for a period of two years.

 

If we ask users for their consent to use third-party providers, the legal basis for processing data is consent. Otherwise, users' data is processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in efficient, economic and recipient-friendly services).
