Relevant legal basis

In the following we share the legal basis of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which controls how we process personal data. Please note that in addition to the regulations of the GDPR, the national data protection requirements in your or our country of residence and domicile may apply. If a more specific legal basis is relevant in individual cases, we will inform you of this in the data protection declaration.

 

  • Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a. GDPR) - the data subject has given consent to the processing of his or her personal data for one or more specific purposes
  • Contract and pre-requests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. GDPR) - processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract
  • Legal obligation (Art. 6 para. 1  lit. c. GDPR) - processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject
  • Legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 S. 1 lit. f. GDPR) - The processing is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of the controller or a third party, not as long as the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, the personal protection Data require, predominate.

 

National data protection regulations in Germany : In addition to the data protection regulations of the General Data Protection Regulation, national data protection regulations apply in Germany. This includes the law on the protection against misuse of personal data during data processing (Federal Data Protection Act - BDSG). The BDSG contains special regulations on the right to information, the right to erasure, the right of objection, the processing of special categories of personal data, processing for other purposes and transmission as well as automated decision-making in individual cases, including profiling. It also regulates data processing for the purposes of the employment relationship (Section 26 BDSG), in particular with regard to the establishment, implementation or termination of employment relationships and the consent of employees. Furthermore, state data protection laws of the individual federal states can be applied.

 

Safety measures

We take appropriate technical and organisational measures in accordance with legal requirements, taking into account current best practices, implementation costs and the type, scope, circumstances and purposes of processing as well as the risk level and the extent of the threat to the rights and freedoms of natural persons to ensure an appropriate level of protection.

The measures include securing the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling physical and electronic access to the data. Furthermore, we have set up procedures that ensure the exercise of data subject rights, the deletion of data and reactions to the threat to the data. We promote the protection of personal data in the development or selection of hardware, software and procedures through technology design and data protection-friendly default settings.

Transmission and disclosure of personal data

As part of our processing of personal data, it may happen that the data is transmitted to other bodies, companies, legally independent organisational units or persons. The recipients of this data can include, for example, payment institutions in the context of payment transactions, service providers commissioned with IT tasks or providers of services and content that are integrated into a website. In such a case, we observe the legal requirements and in particular conclude corresponding contracts or agreements that serve to protect your data with the recipients of your data.

 

Data processing in third countries

If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA)) or data is processed by third party services or the disclosure or transfer of data to other persons, offices or companies takes place, this is only done in accordance with the legal requirements. 

Subject to express consent or contractually or legally required transfer, we only process or have the data processed in third countries with a recognised level of data protection, contractual obligation through so-called standard protection clauses of the EU Commission, if certifications or binding internal data protection regulations are available (Art. Information page of the EU Commission: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection_de ).

 

Use of cookies

Cookies are text files that contain data from websites or domains that are visited which are stored on the user's computer by a browser. A cookie is primarily used to store information about a user during or after their visit to a website. The stored information can include, for example, the language settings on a website, login status, a shopping cart or the location at which a video was viewed. The term cookies also includes other technologies that perform the same functions as cookies (e.g. if user information is stored using pseudonymous online identifiers, also known as "user IDs")

 

A distinction is made between the following cookie types and functions:

  • Temporary cookies (also: session cookies): Temporary cookies are deleted at the latest after a user has left a website and closed their browser
  • Permanent cookies: Permanent cookies are saved even after the browser is closed. For example, login status can be saved or preferred content can be displayed directly when the user visits a website again. The interests of users which are used to measure reach or for marketing purposes can also be stored in such a cookie
  • First-party cookies: First-party cookies are set by ourselves
  • Third-party cookies: Third-party cookies are mainly used by advertisers (so-called third parties) to process user information
  • Necessary (also: essential or absolutely necessary) cookies: Cookies that are absolutely necessary for the operation of a website (e.g. to save logins or other user input or for security reasons).
  • Statistics, marketing and personalisation cookies : In addition, cookies are also used for range measurement and when the interests of a user or his behaviour (e.g. viewing certain content, using functions, etc.) on individual websites in a user profile get saved. Such profiles are used to show users content that corresponds to their potential interests in example. This process is also known as "tracking", i.e. following up the potential interests of users. Insofar as we use cookies or "tracking" technologies, we will inform you separately in our data protection declaration or while obtaining consent.

Notes on legal basis: The legal basis on which we process your personal data with the help of cookies depends on whether we ask for your consent. If this is the case and you consent to the use of cookies, the legal basis for processing your data is the declared consent. Otherwise, the data processed with the help of cookies will be processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (e.g. in the commercial operation of our online offer and its improvement) or, if the use of cookies is necessary, in order to fulfil our contractual obligations.

Storage duration If we do not provide you with any explicit information on the storage duration of permanent cookies (e.g. in the context of a so-called cookie opt- in), please assume that the storage duration can be up to two years.

General information on revocation and objection (opt- out): Depending on whether processing is based on consent or legal permission, you have the option at any time to revoke your consent or to object to the processing of your data using cookie technologies (collectively referred to as "opt- out"). You can register your objection using the settings of your browser, e.g. by deactivating the use of cookies (which can also limit the functionality of our online offer). An objection to the use of cookies for the purposes of online marketing can also be made by a variety of services, especially in the case of tracking, through the websites https://optout.aboutads.info and https://www.youronlinechoices.com/. In addition, you can receive further objection notices in the context of the information on the service providers and cookies used.

Processing of cookie data on the basis of consent : Before we process or have data processed from the use of cookies, we ask the users for consent that can be revoked at any time. If consent has not been given, cookies may be used that are absolutely necessary for the operation of our online offer.

  • Processed data types: usage data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times), meta / communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses)
  • Affected persons: users (e.g. website visitors, users of online services)
  • Legal basis: (Art. 6. para. 1 lit. a. GDPR), authorised interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR)

 

Commercial and business services

We process data from our contractual and business partners, e.g. customers and interested parties (collectively referred to as "contractual partners") in the context of contractual and comparable legal relationships as well as related measures and in the context of communication with the contractual partners (or pre-contractual), e.g. to answer inquiries.

We process this data to fulfil our contractual obligations, to secure our rights and for the purposes of the administrative tasks associated with this information as well as the business organisation. We only pass on the data of the contractual partners to third parties within the scope of applicable law to the extent that this is necessary for the aforementioned purposes or to fulfil legal obligations or with the consent of the persons concerned (e.g. to telecommunications, transport and other auxiliary services involved as well Subcontractors, banks, tax and legal advisors, payment service providers or tax authorities). The contractual partners will be informed about other forms of processing, e.g. for marketing purposes, within the scope of this data protection declaration.

We inform the contractual partners which data is required for the aforementioned purposes before or as part of the data collection, e.g. in online forms, by special labelling (e.g. colours) or symbols (e.g. asterisks or similar), or personally.

We delete the data after the expiry of statutory warranty and comparable obligations, i.e. generally after 4 years, unless the data is stored in a customer account which is kept as long as required for legal reasons (e.g. for Tax purposes usually 10 years). We delete data disclosed to us by the contractual partner in the context of an order in accordance with the specifications of the order, generally after the end of the order.

Insofar as we use third-party providers or platforms to provide our services, the terms and conditions and data protection notices of the respective third-party providers or platforms apply in the relationship between the users and the providers.

Customer account : Contractual partners can create an account within our online offer (e.g. customer or user account, "customer account" for short). If the registration of a customer account is required, contractual partners will be informed of this as well as the information required for registration. The customer accounts are not public and cannot be indexed by search engines. As part of the registration as well as subsequent logins and uses of the customer account, we save the IP addresses of the customers along with the access times in order to be able to prove the registration and prevent any misuse of the customer account.

If customers have cancelled their customer account, the data relating to the customer account will be deleted, subject to their retention being required for legal reasons. It is the responsibility of the customer to save their data if the customer account is terminated.

Shop : We process the data of our customers in order to enable them to select, purchase or order the selected products, goods and related services, as well as their payment and delivery or execution. We use the services of banks and payment service providers to process payment transactions. The information required is marked as such in the context of the order or comparable purchase process and includes the information required for delivery or provision and billing as well as contact information in order to be able to hold any consultation.

Users can create a user account. As part of the registration, the mandatory information is communicated to the users and processed for the purpose of providing the user account on the basis of contractual obligations. The processed data includes the login information (name, password and an email address). The data entered during registration will be used for the purpose of maintaining the user account.

Users can be informed by email about processes that are relevant to their user account, such as technical changes.

Single sign-on registration

"Single sign-on" or "single sign-on registration‚ÄĚ or" authentication" are processes that allow users to register with a provider of single sign-on processes (e.g. a social network), also to register with our online offer. Condition of single sign -On -Authentication is that the users are registered with the respective single sign -on provider and enter the required access data in the online form provided, or are already registered with the single sign -on provider and confirm on registration via the appropriate button. 

The authentication takes place directly with the respective single sign -on provider. As part of such authentication, we receive a user ID with the information that the user is logged in to the respective single sign -on provider under this user ID and an ID that cannot be used for other purposes (so-called "user handle") Whether additional data is transmitted to us depends solely on the single sign -on procedure used, the selected data releases as part of the authentication and also on which data users in the privacy or other settings of the user account for single - Sign -On provider. Depending on the single sign -on provider and the choice of user, different data can be used, usually the email address and the username. The password entered in the sign -on procedure with the single sign -on provider is neither visible to us, nor is it stored by us.

Users are asked to note that the information we store can be automatically compared with their user account with the single sign -on provider, but this is not always possible or actually takes place. If, for example, the users' email addresses change, they have to change them manually in their user account with us.

If agreed with the users, we can use the single sign -on registration within the framework of or before the fulfilment of the contract, insofar as the users have been asked to do so, process it within the framework of a consent and otherwise set it on the basis of the legitimate interests on our part and the Interests of users in an effective and secure login system.

Should users ever decide that they no longer want to use the link to their user account with the single sign -on provider for the single sign -on procedure, they must cancel this connection within their user account with the single sign -on provider. If users want to delete their data with us, they have to cancel their registration with us.

Facebook Single Sign -On : We work with Facebook Ireland Ltd. for the collection or receipt as part of a transmission (but not the further processing) of "event data" that Facebook collects using the Facebook single sign -on registration process that is carried out on our online offer or as part of a Transmission for the following purposes: a) Display of content advertising information that corresponds to the presumed interests of the users; b) Delivery of commercial and transaction-related messages (e.g. addressing users via Facebook Messenger); c) Improving the delivery of advertisements and personalising functions and content (e.g. improving the recognition of which content or advertising information presumably corresponds to the interests of the users). We have concluded a special agreement with Facebook ("Addition for those responsible", https://www.facebook.com/legal/controller_addendum ), which regulates in particular which security measures Facebook must observe ( https: //www.facebook. com / legal / terms / data_security_terms ) and in which Facebook has agreed to fulfil the rights of the data subject (i.e. users can, for example, send information or deletion requests directly to Facebook).

Push messages

With the consent of the user, we can send so-called "push notifications" to the users. These are messages that are displayed on the screens, devices or in the browsers of the users, even when our online service is not actively used.

In order to register for the push notifications, users must confirm the query on their browser or device to receive the push notifications. This approval process is documented and saved. The storage is necessary in order to recognise whether users have agreed to receive the push messages and to be able to prove their consent. For this purpose, a pseudonymous browser identifier (so-called "push token") or the device ID of a device is saved.

Push notifications may be required to fulfil contractual obligations (e.g. technical and organisational information relevant to the use of our online offer ) and are otherwise, unless specifically mentioned below, sent on the basis of the consent of the user. Users can change the receipt of push messages at any time using the notification settings of their respective browser or device.

Push messages with advertising content :

The push notifications we send can contain promotional information. The promotional push messages are processed based on the consent of the user.

Analysis and success measurement :

We evaluate push messages statistically and can thus recognise whether and when push messages were displayed and clicked. This information is used to technically improve our push messages based on the technical data or the target groups and their retrieval behaviour or retrieval times. This analysis also includes determining whether the push messages are opened, when they are opened and whether users interact with their content or buttons. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual push message recipients. However, it is neither our aim nor, if used, that of the shipping service provider to observe individual users.

Used services and service providers:

Newsletters and electronic notifications

We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with advertising information (hereinafter "newsletter") only with the consent of the recipient or a legal permission. Insofar as the contents of a newsletter are concretely described, they are authoritative for the consent of the users. Incidentally, our newsletters contain information about Spinarena and its programs and events, as well as programs and events relevant to our target groups.

In order to register for our newsletters, it is generally sufficient to provide your email address. However, we can ask you to provide a name for the purpose of addressing you personally in the newsletter, or to provide further information if this is necessary for the purposes of the newsletter.

Double- Opt -In-process: The subscription to our newsletter is a double- Opt -In process. In other words, after registering you will receive an email asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with someone else's email address. The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with the legal requirements. This includes storing the time of registration and confirmation as well as the IP address. Changes to your data stored by the shipping service provider are also logged.

Deletion and restriction of processing: We can save the unsubscribed email addresses for up to three years on the basis of our legitimate interests (in order to be able to prove a previously given consent) before we delete them. The processing of this data is limited to the purpose of a possible defence against claims. An individual request for deletion is possible at any time, provided that the previous existence of consent is confirmed at the same time. In the event of obligations to permanently observe contradictions, we reserve the right to store the email address in a block list for this purpose alone.

The logging of the registration process takes place on the basis of our legitimate interests for the purpose of proving that it has proceeded properly. If we commission a service provider to send emails, this is done on the basis of our legitimate interests in an efficient and secure mailing system.

Notes on legal bases: The newsletter is sent on the basis of the recipient's consent or, if consent is not required, on the basis of our legitimate interests in direct marketing, if and to the extent that this is permitted by law, e.g. in the case of advertising to existing customers. Insofar as we commission a service provider to send emails, this is done on the basis of our legitimate interests. The registration process is recorded based on our legitimate interests to prove that it was carried out in accordance with the law.

Analysis and success measurement : The newsletters contain a so-called "web beacon ", i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from our server when the newsletter is opened or, if we use a shipping service provider, from its server. Technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and the time of access, is collected.

This information is used to improve our newsletter on the basis of the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or the access times. This analysis also includes determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our endeavour nor, if used, that of the shipping service provider to observe individual users. Rather, the evaluations help us to recognise the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.

The evaluation of the newsletter and the measurement of success take place, subject to the express consent of the user, on the basis of our legitimate interests for the purpose of using a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves both our business interests and the expectations of the users.

A separate revocation of the performance measurement is unfortunately not possible, in this case the entire newsletter subscription must be cancelled.

Requirement for the use of free services : Consent to the sending of mailings can be made dependent as a condition for the use of free services (e.g. access to certain content or participation in certain campaigns). If users want to use the free service without registering for the newsletter, we ask you to contact us.

Advertising communication via email, post, fax or telephone

We process personal data for the purposes of advertising communication, which can take place via various channels, such as email, telephone, post or fax, in accordance with legal requirements.

The recipients have the right to revoke their consent at any time or to object to advertising communication at any time.

After revocation or objection, we can store the data required to prove consent for up to three years on the basis of our legitimate interests before we delete them. The processing of this data is limited to the purpose of a possible defence against claims. An individual request for deletion is possible at any time, provided that the former existence of a consent is confirmed at the same time.

Sweepstakes and competitions

We process personal data of the participants in sweepstakes and competitions only in compliance with the relevant data protection regulations, insofar as the processing is contractually required for the provision, implementation and handling of the sweepstakes, the participants have consented to the processing or the processing serves our legitimate interests (e.g. in the Security of the competition or the protection of our interests against misuse through the possible collection of IP addresses when submitting competition entries).

If contributions by the participants are published as part of the competition (e.g. in the context of a vote or presentation of the competition contributions or the winners or reporting on the competition), we point out that the names of the participants can also be published in this context. Participants can object to this at any time.

If the competition takes place within an online platform or a social network (e.g. Facebook or Instagram, hereinafter referred to as "online platform"), the usage and data protection provisions of the respective platforms also apply. In these cases, we point out that we are responsible for the information provided by the participants in the context of the competition and inquiries regarding the competition are to be directed to us.

The data of the participants will be deleted as soon as the competition is over and the data is no longer required to inform the winners. In principle, the data of the participants will be deleted no later than 6 months after the end of the competition. The winners' data can be retained for longer, for example to answer questions about the prizes or to be able to fulfil the prizes. In this case, the retention period depends on the type of profit and is, for example, up to three years for items or services, in order to be able to process warranty cases. Furthermore, the data of the participants can be stored for a longer time, for example in the form of reporting on the competition in online and offline media.

If data was also collected for other purposes within the framework of the competition, its processing and retention period are based on the data protection information for this use (e.g. in the case of registering for the newsletter as part of a competition).

  • Processed data types: inventory data (e.g. names, addresses), content data (e.g. entries in online forms).
  • Affected persons: Contest and competition participants.
  • Purposes of processing: Carrying out sweepstakes and competitions.

The polls and surveys carried out by us (hereinafter "surveys") are evaluated anonymously. Personal data are only processed to the extent that this is necessary for the provision and technical implementation of the surveys (e.g. processing of the IP address in order to display the survey in the user's browser or to allow the survey to be resumed using a temporary cookie (session cookie) enable) or users have consented.

Notes on legal bases: If we ask the participants for consent to the processing of their data, this is the legal basis for the processing, otherwise the processing of the participants' data is based on our legitimate interests in carrying out an objective survey.

  • Processed data types: contact data (e.g. e-mail, telephone numbers), content data (e.g. entries in online forms), usage data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times), meta / communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses).

  • Legal basis: (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a. GDPR), authorised interests (Art 6 para.1 lit. f. GDPR)

 

Web analysis, monitoring and optimisation

Web analysis (also known as "range measurement") is used to evaluate the flow of visitors to our online offer and can include behaviour, interests or demographic information about visitors, such as age or gender, as pseudonymous values. With the help of the range analysis, we can, for example, recognise at which time our online offer or its functions or content are used most often or invite you to reuse. We can also understand which areas need optimisation.

In addition to web analysis, we can also use test procedures, for example, to test and optimise different versions of our online offer or its components.

For these purposes’ user profiles can be created and stored in a file (so-called "cookie") or similar processes can be used for the same purpose. This information can include, for example, the content viewed, websites visited and the elements and technical information used there, such as the browser used, the computer system used and information on usage times. If users have consented to their location data being collected, this can also be processed, depending on the provider.

The IP addresses of the users are also saved. However, we use an IP masking process (i.e. pseudonymisation by shortening the IP address) to protect users. In general, in the context of web analysis, A / B testing and optimisation, no clear user data (such as e-mail addresses or names) are stored, but pseudonyms. This means that we and the providers of the software used do not know the actual identity of the users, but only the information stored in their profiles for the purposes of the respective procedures.

Notes on legal basis: If we ask users for their consent to the use of third-party providers, the legal basis for processing data is consent. Otherwise, user data will be processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in efficient, economical and recipient-friendly services). In this context, we would like to draw your attention to the information on the use of cookies in this data protection declaration.

Advertising / Online marketing

We process personal data for online marketing purposes, which can include, in particular, the marketing of advertising space or the presentation of advertising and other content (collectively referred to as "content") based on the potential interests of users and the measurement of their effectiveness. 

For these purposes, so-called user profiles are created and stored in a file (so-called "cookie") or similar processes are used, by means of which the user information relevant to the presentation of the aforementioned content is saved. This information can include content viewed, websites visited, online networks used, but also communication partners and technical information such as the browser used, the computer system used and information on usage times. If users have consented to their location data being collected, these can also be processed.

The IP addresses of the users are also saved. However, we use available IP masking processes (i.e., pseudonymisation by shortening the IP address) to protect users. In general, no clear user data (such as e-mail addresses or names) are stored in the online marketing process, but pseudonyms. In other words, neither we nor the providers of online marketing processes 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 processes. These cookies can later generally also be read out on other websites that use the same online marketing process, analysed for the purpose of displaying content and supplemented with additional data and stored on the server of the online marketing process provider.

As an exception, clear data can be assigned to the profiles. This is the case if the users are, for example, members of a social network whose online marketing process we use and the network connects the profiles of the users with the aforementioned information. We ask you to note that users can make additional agreements with the providers, e.g. by giving their consent during registration.

In principle, we only get access to summarised information about the success of our advertisements. However, within the scope of so-called conversion measurements, we can check which of our online marketing processes have led to a so-called conversion, i.e., for example, to a contract with us. The conversion measurement is used solely to analyse the success of our marketing measures.

Unless otherwise stated, assume that the cookies used will be stored for a period of two years.

Notes on legal basis: If we ask users for their consent to the use of third-party providers, the legal basis for processing data is consent. Otherwise, user data will be processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in efficient, economical and recipient-friendly services). In this context, we would like to draw your attention to the information on the use of cookies in this data protection declaration.

Facebook pixels and target group formation (Custom Audiences ) :

With the help of the Facebook pixel (or comparable functions for the transmission of event data or contact information using interfaces in apps), Facebook is able to target the visitors of our online offer as a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called "Facebook ads" ) to be determined. Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to only send the Facebook ads to those users on Facebook and within the services of the partners cooperating with Facebook (so-called " Audience Network" https://www.facebook.com/audiencenetwork/) ) who have also shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interest in certain topics or products that can be seen from the websites visited) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called "Custom Audiences "). We also want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of the user and are not annoying. With the help of the Facebook pixel we can also understand the effectiveness of the Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes.

We maintain an online presence within social networks and process user data in this context in order to communicate with the users active there or to offer information about us.

We would like to point out that user data can be processed outside of the European Union. This can result in risks for the user because it could make it more difficult to enforce the users' rights, for example.

In addition, user data is usually processed within social networks for market research and advertising purposes. For example, usage profiles can be created on the basis of user behaviour and the interests of the user resulting from this. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the networks that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the users' computers, in which the usage behaviour and the interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, data can be stored in the usage profiles regardless of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them).

For a detailed description of the respective forms of processing and the possibilities of objection ( opt- out), we refer to the data protection declarations and information provided by the operators of the respective networks.

In the case of requests for information and the assertion of rights of data subjects, we point out that these can be most effectively asserted with the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can take appropriate measures and provide information. If you still need help, you can contact us.

Facebook : We work with Facebook Ireland Ltd. who are responsible for the collection (but not the further processing) of data from visitors to our Facebook page (so-called "fan page"). This data includes information about the types of content users view or interact with, or the actions they take (see ‚ÄúThings You and Others Do and Provide‚ÄĚ in the Facebook Data Policy: https: // www.facebook.com/policy ), as well as information about the devices used by the users (e.g. IP addresses, operating system, browser type, language settings, cookie data; see under "Device information" in the Facebook data policy declaration: https://www.facebook.com/policy ). As explained in the Facebook data guideline under "How do we use this information?", Facebook also collects and uses information to provide analysis services, so-called "Page Insights ", for website operators so that they can obtain information about how people use their pages and interact with the content associated with them. We have concluded a special agreement with Facebook ("Information on Page Insights ", https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum ), which regulates in particular which security measures Facebook must observe and which Facebook itself has agreed to fulfil the rights of the data subject (i.e. users can, for example, send information or deletion requests directly to Facebook). The rights of users (in particular to information, deletion, objection and complaint to the competent supervisory authority) are not restricted by the agreements with Facebook.

Plugins and embedded functions as well as content

We incorporate functional and content elements into our online offering that are obtained from the servers of their respective providers (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers"). These can be graphics, videos or social media buttons and articles (hereinafter uniformly referred to as "content").

The integration always presupposes that the third-party providers of this content process the IP address of the user, since without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to their browser. The IP address is therefore required for the display of this content or functions. We strive to use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. Third-party providers can also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as "web beacons") for statistical or marketing purposes. The "pixel tags" can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information can also be stored in cookies on the user's device and contain, among other things, technical information on the browser and operating system, the websites to be referred to, the time of visit and other information on the use of our online offer, as well as being linked to such information from other sources.
