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 green­tech GmbH & Cie. KG. The use of the Internet pages of the green­tech GmbH & Cie. KG 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 green­tech GmbH & Cie. KG. 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 green­tech GmbH & Cie. KG 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 green­tech GmbH & Cie. KG 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.

In this data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­on, we use, inter alia, the fol­lo­wing terms:

a)    Personal data

Personal data means any infor­ma­ti­on relating to an iden­ti­fied or iden­ti­fia­ble natural person (“data subject”). An iden­ti­fia­ble natural person is one who can be iden­ti­fied, directly or indi­rec­t­ly, in par­ti­cu­lar by refe­rence to an iden­ti­fier such as a name, an iden­ti­fi­ca­ti­on number, location data, an online iden­ti­fier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, phy­sio­lo­gi­cal, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

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

c)    Pro­ces­sing

Pro­ces­sing is any ope­ra­ti­on or set of ope­ra­ti­ons which is per­for­med on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by auto­ma­ted means, such as collec­tion, record­ing, orga­ni­sa­ti­on, struc­tu­ring, storage, adap­tati­on or alte­ra­ti­on, retrie­val, con­sul­ta­ti­on, use, dis­clo­sure by trans­mis­si­on, dis­se­mi­na­ti­on or other­wi­se making avail­ab­le, align­ment or com­bi­na­ti­on, restric­tion, erasure or dest­ruc­tion.

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

Pro­ces­sor is a natural or legal person, public aut­ho­ri­ty, agency or other body which pro­ces­ses personal data on behalf of the con­trol­ler.

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.

  1. Cookies

The Internet pages of the green­tech GmbH & Cie. KG 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 green­tech GmbH & Cie. KG 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.

 

  1. Collec­tion of general data and infor­ma­ti­on

The website of the green­tech GmbH & Cie. KG 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 green­tech GmbH & Cie. KG 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 green­tech GmbH & Cie. KG 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.

 

  1. Contact pos­si­bi­li­ty via the website

The website of the green­tech GmbH & Cie. KG 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.

 

  1. 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.

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.

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.

  1. Data pro­tec­tion for app­li­ca­ti­ons and the app­li­ca­ti­on pro­ce­du­res

The data con­trol­ler shall collect and process the personal data of app­li­cants for the purpose of the pro­ces­sing of the app­li­ca­ti­on pro­ce­du­re. The pro­ces­sing may also be carried out elec­tro­ni­cal­ly. This is the case, in par­ti­cu­lar, if an app­li­cant submits cor­re­spon­ding app­li­ca­ti­on docu­ments by e-mail or by means of a web form on the website to the con­trol­ler. If the data con­trol­ler con­clu­des an employ­ment contract with an app­li­cant, the sub­mit­ted data will be stored for the purpose of pro­ces­sing the employ­ment rela­ti­ons­hip in com­pli­an­ce with legal requi­re­ments. If no employ­ment contract is con­clu­ded with the app­li­cant by the con­trol­ler, the app­li­ca­ti­on docu­ments shall be auto­ma­ti­cal­ly erased two months after noti­fi­ca­ti­on of the refusal decision, provided that no other legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests of the con­trol­ler are opposed to the erasure. Other legi­ti­ma­te interest in this relation is, e.g. a burden of proof in a pro­ce­du­re under the General Equal Tre­at­ment Act (AGG).

 

  1. 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.

The data pro­tec­tion gui­de­li­ne published by Facebook, which is avail­ab­le at https://facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides infor­ma­ti­on about the collec­tion, pro­ces­sing and use of personal data by Facebook. In addition, it is exp­lai­ned there what setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, dif­fe­rent con­fi­gu­ra­ti­on options are made avail­ab­le to allow the eli­mi­na­ti­on of data trans­mis­si­on to Facebook. These app­li­ca­ti­ons may be used by the data subject to eli­mi­na­te a data trans­mis­si­on to Facebook.

 

  1. 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. Google Ana­ly­tics is further exp­lai­ned under the fol­lo­wing Link https://www.google.com/analytics/.

 

  1. 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.

 

  1. 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.

  1. 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).

 

  1. 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.

 

  1. 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.

 

  1. 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.

 

  1. Exis­tence of auto­ma­ted decision-making

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