Privacy Policy

We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection has a particularly high value for the management of the James & Mac Diving Center. A use of the internet pages of the James & Mac Diving Center is basically possible without any indication of personal data. If a person concerned would like to use special services of our company via our internet page, however, a processing of personal data could be necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such a processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always in accordance with the basic data protection regulation and in compliance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the James & Mac Diving Center. By means of this privacy policy our company wants to inform the public about the type, extent and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, this privacy policy informs affected persons about their rights.

The James & Mac Diving Center, as the person responsible for the processing, has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as completely as possible. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps, so that an absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone or by post.

1. Definitions

The privacy policy of James & Mac Diving Center is based on the terms used by the European Directive and Regulation Giver when the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO) was issued. Our privacy policy should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.

We use the following terms, among others, in this privacy policy:

  • a) Personal data

    Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as "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, on-line identification, or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

  • b) Person concerned

    Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.

    Processing is any operation or set of operations, whether or not performed by automated means, which is performed upon personal data, such as collection, recording, organisation, organisation, filing, 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 future processing.

  • e) Profiling

    Profiling is any automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to the job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, location or change of location of that natural person.

  • f) Pseudonymisation

    Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

  • g) Controller or controller responsible for processing

    Controller or data controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any 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 national law, provision may be made for the controller or for the specific criteria for his or her designation in accordance with Union or national law.

  • h) Contract processors

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

  • i) Recipient

    The recipient is any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not that person is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation mandate under Union or national law shall not be considered as recipients.

  • j) Third party

    A third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or the processor, are authorized to process the personal data.

  • k) Consent

    Consent shall mean any freely given, informed and unequivocal expression of the data subject's will in a specific case, in the form of a statement or any other unequivocal affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her consent to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

3. Cookies

The internet pages of the James & Mac Diving Center use cookies. Cookies are text files, which are stored on a computer system via an internet browser.

Many websites 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 string of characters which can be used to assign Internet pages and servers to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the Internet pages and servers visited to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified by means of the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, James & Mac Diving Center can provide more user-friendly services to the users of this website, which would not be possible without the setting of cookies.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimised in the interest of the user. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to enter his or her access data each time he or she visits the website, as this is done by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in the online shop. The online shop uses a cookie to remember the articles that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, it is possible that not all functions of our website can be fully used.

4. Collection of general data and information

The website of James & Mac Diving Center collects a number of general data and information with every visit of the website by a data subject or an automated system. These general data and information are stored in the log files of the server. The (1) used browser types and versions, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites, which are accessed by an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet Protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information which serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information, James & Mac Diving Center does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. This information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) to ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and (4) to provide law enforcement agencies in case of a cyber attack the necessary information for prosecution. These anonymously collected data and information are therefore statistically evaluated by James & Mac Diving Center on the one hand and also with the goal to increase the data protection and data security in our company, to ultimately ensure an optimal protection level for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data given by a person concerned.

5. Registration on our website

The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the controller by providing personal data. The personal data transmitted to the controller will be determined by the input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored solely for internal use by the data controller and for his or her own purposes. The controller may arrange for the personal data to be transferred to one or more processors, such as a parcel service provider, which shall also use the personal data exclusively for internal use attributable to the controller.

Furthermore, by registering on the Internet site of the data controller, the IP address assigned to the data subject by the Internet Service Provider (ISP), the date and time of registration are stored. The storage of this data is carried out against the background that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services and, if necessary, to enable the clarification of criminal offences committed. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary to protect the person responsible for processing. As a matter of principle, this data will not be passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to do so or the passing on of the data serves criminal prosecution.

The registration of the data subject with voluntary provision of personal data serves the purpose of the data controller to offer the data subject content or services which, by their very nature, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to modify the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have them completely deleted from the data stock of the data controller.

The controller shall at any time upon request provide any data subject with information as to which personal data relating to the data subject are stored. Furthermore, the controller shall correct or delete personal data at the request or notice of the data subject, unless this is contrary to any legal obligation to preserve records. The entire staff of the data controller is available to the data subject as contact persons in this context.

6. Subscription to our newsletter

On the James & Mac Diving Center website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company newsletter. Which personal data will be transmitted to the data controller when ordering the newsletter can be seen from the input mask used for this purpose.

The James & Mac Diving Center informs its customers and business partners in regular intervals by means of a newsletter about offers of the company. The newsletter of our company can only be received by the person concerned if (1) the person concerned has a valid e-mail address and (2) the person concerned registers for the newsletter. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address first registered by a data subject for newsletter dispatch using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to check whether the owner of the e-mail address, as the data subject, has authorized the receipt of the newsletter.

When registering for the newsletter, we also save the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date and therefore serves to provide legal protection for the person responsible for processing.

The personal data collected during registration for the newsletter is used exclusively for sending our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or for registration, as could be the case if there are changes to the newsletter offer or if technical conditions change. The personal data collected within the scope of the newsletter service will not be passed on to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled by the person concerned at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the person concerned has given us for the newsletter service, can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking this consent, a corresponding link can be found in every newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the data controller or to inform the data controller in another way.

7. Newsletter-tracking

The newsletters of the James & Mac Diving Center contain so-called counting pixels. A tracking pixel is a thumbnail graphic which is embedded in such e-mails which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This enables a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. By means of the embedded pixel-code, the James & Mac Diving Center can recognize if and when an e-mail was opened by a person concerned and which links in the e-mail were called by the person concerned.

Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the data controller in order to optimise the newsletter dispatch and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. This personal data is not passed on to third parties. Data subjects are entitled at any time to revoke the separate declaration of consent given in this regard via the double opt-in procedure. After revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the data controller. A cancellation of the receipt of the newsletter is automatically interpreted by James & Mac Diving Center as a revocation.

8. Possibility of contact via the website

Due to legal regulations, the website of James & Mac Diving Center contains information that allows a quick electronic contact to our company as well as a 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 data controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject is automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted by a data subject to the controller on a voluntary basis are stored for the purposes of processing or for contacting the data subject. Such personal data shall not be disclosed to third parties.

9. Comment function in the blog on the website

The James & Mac Diving Center offers users the possibility to leave individual comments on individual blog posts on a blog located on the website of the data controller. A blog is a portal maintained on a website, usually publicly accessible, where one or more persons, called bloggers or web-bloggers, can post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blog posts. The blog posts can usually be commented by third parties.

If a data subject leaves a comment in the blog published on this website, in addition to the comments left by the data subject, information on the time of the comment and the user name (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject will be stored and published. Furthermore, the IP address assigned to the person concerned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) is also logged. This storage of the IP address is done for security reasons and in the event that the person concerned violates the rights of third parties or posts illegal content by submitting a comment. The storage of this personal data is therefore in the own interest of the data controller, so that he/she can be exculpated in the event of a violation of the law. The personal data collected will not be passed on to third parties unless such a transfer is required by law or serves the legal defence of the data controller.

10. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

The controller shall process and store personal data relating to the data subject only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or where provided for by the European legislator or other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.

If the purpose of storage ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directives and Regulations or any other competent legislator expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with legal requirements.

11. Rights of the data subject

  • a) Right to confirmation

    Every data subject has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, to obtain from the controller confirmation as to whether personal data relating to him or her are being processed.

  • d) Right of cancellation (right to be forgotten)

    Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain from the controller the immediate erasure of personal data relating to him/her, where one of the following reasons applies and where the processing is not necessary

    • The personal data has been collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which it is no longer necessary.
    • The data subject withdraws the consent on which the processing was based in accordance with Article 6(1)(a) DPA or Article 9(2)(a) DPA and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
    • The data subject lodges an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) DPA and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or the data subject lodges an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) DPA.

The employee of the James & Mac Diving Center will arrange that the request for deletion is immediately complied with.

    If the personal data have been made public by the James & Mac Diving Center and our company as the responsible person is obliged to delete the personal data according to art. 17 para. 1 DS-GVO, the James & Mac Diving Center will take reasonable measures, also of a technical nature, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform other data controllers who process the published personal data, that the data subject has requested from these other data controllers the deletion of all links to these personal data or of copies or replications of these personal data, unless the processing is necessary. The employee of James & Mac Diving Center will arrange the necessary in individual cases.

  • e) Right to restrict processing

    Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to request the controller to restrict the processing if one of the following conditions is met:

    • The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period of time that allows the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
    • The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses the deletion of the personal data and instead requests the restriction of the use of the personal data.
    • The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data subject needs them in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
    • The data subject has lodged an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DPA and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh those of the data subject.

    If any of the above conditions is met and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by James & Mac Diving Center, he/she may at any time contact an employee of the data controller to this end. The employee of the James & Mac Diving Center will arrange the restriction of the processing.

  • f) Right to data portability

    Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to receive the personal data concerning him/her which have been made available to a controller by the data subject in a structured, common and machine-readable format. He or she also has the right to have this data communicated to another controller without hindrance by the controller to whom the personal data has been made available, provided that the processing is based on the consent pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 letter a DPA or Article 9 paragraph 2 letter a DPA or on a contract pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 letter b DPA and that the processing is carried out by means of automated procedures, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

    Furthermore, when exercising his or her right to data transfer, the data subject has the right, in accordance with Article 20 paragraph 1 of the DPA, to obtain that personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that it does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.

  • g) Right of appeal

This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

    The James & Mac Diving Center will no longer process personal data in case of objection, unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing that are worthy of protection, which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the person concerned, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

    If James & Mac Diving Center processes personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such marketing. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to the James & Mac Diving Center to the processing for the purpose of direct marketing, the James & Mac Diving Center will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

    In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may directly contact any employee of James & Mac Diving Center or any other employee. The data subject is also free to exercise his right of objection in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 200258 EC, by means of automated procedures involving technical specifications.

  • h) Automated case-by-case decisions including profiling

    Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has 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/her or significantly affects him/her in a similar way, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is authorised by Union or national legislation to which the controller is subject and such legislation provides for adequate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) is made with the explicit consent of the data subject.

    If the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller or (2) is made with the express consent of the data subject, James & Mac Diving Center shall take reasonable steps to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person from the controller, to put forward his point of view and to challenge the decision.

    If the data subject wishes to exercise rights relating to automated decisions, he or she may at any time consult an employee of the controller.

  • i) Right to withdraw consent under data protection law

    Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directives and Regulations to revoke consent to the processing of personal data at any time.

    If the data subject wishes to exercise his or her right to withdraw consent, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.

12. Data protection in applications and the application process

The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out by electronic means. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits relevant application documents to the controller electronically, for example by e-mail or via a web form on the website. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data is stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in accordance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents are automatically deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller conflict with deletion. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, an obligation to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz, AGG).

13. Data protection regulations for the application and use of AddThis

The data controller has integrated components of the company AddThis on this website. AddThis is a so-called bookmarking provider. The service enables a simplified bookmarking of Internet pages via buttons. By hovering over the AddThis component with the mouse or clicking on it, a list of bookmarking and sharing services is displayed. AddThis is used on more than 15 million Internet pages, and according to the operating company, the buttons are displayed more than 20 billion times a year.

The operating company of AddThis is AddThis, Inc. 1595 Spring Hill Road, Suite 300, Vienna, VA 22182, USA.

Each time the data subject calls up one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which an AddThis component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective AddThis component to download data from the website www.addthis.com. Within the framework of this technical procedure, AddThis is informed about the visit and which specific individual page of this website is used by the information technology system used by the data subject. Furthermore, AddThis is informed about the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the computer system used by the person concerned, the browser type, the browser language, the Internet page called up before our Internet page, the date and time of the visit to our Internet page. AddThis uses this data to create anonymous user profiles. The data and information transferred to AddThis in this way enables AddThis itself and the companies affiliated with AddThis or its partner companies to specifically address visitors to the Internet pages of the person responsible for processing with personalised and interest-related advertising.

AddThis displays personalised and interest-related advertising on the basis of a cookie set by the company. This cookie analyses the individual surfing behaviour of the computer system used by the person concerned. The cookie stores the visits to Internet sites that originate from the computer system.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent AddThis from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. Moreover, AddThis can delete cookies already set by AddThis at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs.

The data subject also has the opportunity to permanently object to the processing of personal data by AddThis. To do so, the data subject must press the opt-out button under the link http:/www.addthis.comprivacyopt-out, which sets an opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie set with the objection is stored on the information technology system used by the data subject. If the cookies are deleted on the data subject's system after an objection, the data subject must call up the link again and set a new opt-out cookie.

However, once the opt-out cookie has been set, it is possible that the data subject may no longer be able to fully access the Internet pages of the controller.

The valid data protection regulations of AddThis can be found under http:/www.addthis.comprivacyprivacy-policy.

14. Privacy policy on the use of Facebook

The data controller has integrated components of the company Facebook on this website. Facebook is a social network.

A social network is a social meeting place operated on the Internet, an online community that generally allows users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or it can enable the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Facebook enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friend requests, among other things.

The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc. 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. The person responsible for processing personal data if a data subject lives outside the USA or Canada is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Each time the data controller calls up one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Facebook component to download a representation of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook. A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be called up at https:/developers.facebook.comdocsplugins?locale=en_DE. As part of this technical process, Facebook is informed which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.

If the person concerned is logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes which specific subpage of our website the person concerned is visiting each time the person concerned calls up our website and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the person concerned. If the person concerned clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the "Like" button, or if the person concerned makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the person concerned and stores this personal data.

Facebook will always receive information via the Facebook component that the person concerned has visited our website if the person concerned is logged in to Facebook at the same time when he or she accesses our website; this occurs regardless of whether the person concerned clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Facebook, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her Facebook account before accessing our website.

The data policy published by Facebook, which is available at https:/en-en.facebook.comaboutprivacy, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains which settings Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the person concerned. In addition, various applications are available that make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Such applications can be used by the data subject to suppress data transfer to Facebook.

15. Privacy policy on the use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)

The person responsible for processing has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data on which website a person concerned came to a website from (so-called referrers), which sub-pages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and to analyse the cost-benefit of internet advertising.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The data controller uses the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the data subject's Internet connection is shortened by Google and made anonymous if our Internet pages are accessed from a member state of the European Union or from another state that is a party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is the analysis of visitor flows on our website.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is able to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, is called up, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Google receives knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission settlements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the time of access, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned. Each time our website is visited, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the data subject has the opportunity to object to and prevent the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. To do this, the person concerned must download and install a browser add-on under the link https:/tools.google.comdlpagegaoptout. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the Browser-Add-On is considered by Google as contradiction. If the data subject's information technology system is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later date, the data subject must reinstall the Browser Add-On in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the person concerned or another person within his or her sphere of control, the browser add-on may be reinstalled or reactivated.

19. Legal basis of the processing

Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as a 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 a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which makes it necessary to process personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were to be injured and his or her name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be disclosed to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this case the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject prevail. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).

20. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

21. The duration for which the personal data are stored

The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfillment or initiation of the contract.

22. Legal or contractual provisions making the personal data available; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of nonprovision

We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him/her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before the person concerned makes personal data available, the person concerned must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis 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 what the consequences would be if the personal data were not provided.

23. Existence of automated decision making

As a responsible company, we avoid automatic decision making or profiling.
