Thank you very much for your interest in our association. Data protection has a particularly high priority for those responsible at IOGT Germany. The internet pages of IOGT Deutschland can be used without any indication of personal data. However, if a person concerned wishes to make use of special services provided by our association via our website, personal data may have to be processed. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.

The processing of personal data, for example the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a person concerned, is always carried out in accordance with the Basic Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to IOGT Germany. By means of this data protection declaration, our association wishes to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, this data protection declaration informs the persons concerned about their rights.

As the data controller, IOGT Germany has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete possible protection of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can in principle have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, each person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, such as telephone.

1. Definitions

IOGT Germany's data protection declaration is based on the terminology used by the European directive and ordinance giver when issuing the data protection basic regulation (DS-GVO). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our users and partners. In order to guarantee this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.

We use the following terms in this privacy policy:

  • (a) Personal data

    Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "data subject"). A natural person shall be considered identifiable if he 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 one or more specific characteristics expressing the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

  • (b) Data subject

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

  • (c) Processing

    "Processing" means any operation or set of operations which is carried out with or without the aid of automated processes and which relates to personal data, such as collection, recording, organisation, sorting, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or association, qualification, erasure or destruction.

  • (d) Limitation of processing

    Limitation 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 work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, whereabouts or movement of that natural person.

  • (f) Pseudonymisation

    Pseudonymisation means 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 provision of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures ensuring that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

  • (g) Controller or data controller

    The controller or data controller 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 laid down by Union law or by the law of the Member States, the controller or controllers may be designated in accordance with Union law or with the law of the Member States on the basis of specific criteria.

  • (h) Processors under contract

    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 a 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 course of a specific investigation task under Union law or the law of the Member States shall not be considered as recipients.

  • (j) Third parties

    Third party means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or processor.

  • (k) Consent

    Consent shall mean any voluntary, informed and unambiguous expression by the data subject of his or her will in the particular case, in the form of a statement or other unequivocal confirmatory act, indicating that he or she consents to the processing of his or her personal data.

2. Name and address of the controller

The person responsible within the meaning of the Basic Data Protection Regulation, other data protection laws applicable in the Member States of the European Union and other provisions of a data protection nature:

IOGT Germany
Adenauerallee 45
20097 Hamburg
Germany
Phone: +49-40-28407699-0
E-mail:
Website: www.guttempler.de

3. Cookies

The Internet pages of IOGT Germany use cookies. Cookies are text files which are stored on a computer system via an Internet browser.

Numerous 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 string of characters through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular Internet browser can be recognized and identified by its unique cookie ID.

By using cookies, IOGT Germany can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that 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 interests of the user. Cookies enable us, as already mentioned, 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 re-enter his access data each time he visits the website because this is taken over by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping basket in the online shop. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping basket via a cookie.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of 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, not all functions of our website may be fully usable under certain circumstances.

4. Collection of general data and information

The IOGT Germany website collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a data subject or an automated system. These general data and information are stored in the log files of the server. The following can be recorded

  1. browser types and versions used,
  2. the ope#rating system used by the accessing system,
  3. the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer),
  4. the subwebsites, which are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
  5. the date and time of access to the website,
  6. an Internet protocol address (IP address),
  7. the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and
  8. other similar data and information used to avert dangers in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information, IOGT Germany does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required in order to

  1. deliver the contents of our website correctly,
  2. optimise the content of our website and the advertising for it,
  3. ensure the long-term operability of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and
  4. to provide law enforcement authorities with the information they need to prosecute a cyber attack.

IOGT Germany therefore evaluates this anonymously collected data and information both statistically and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our association in order to ultimately ensure an optimum 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 the person concerned.

5. Registration on our website

If the data subject is a member or sponsor of IOGT Germany, he or she has the opportunity to register on the website of the data controller by providing personal data. The personal data transmitted to the data controller in this process is determined by the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject shall be collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller and for its own purposes. The controller may arrange for the data to be disclosed to one or more processors, such as a parcel service, who will also use the personal data solely for internal purposes attributable to the controller.

By registering on the website 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 also stored. This data is stored in order to prevent misuse of our services and, if necessary, to enable us to investigate criminal offences that have been committed. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary to safeguard the data controller. These data will not be passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to do so or the data is used for criminal prosecution.

The registration of the data subject by voluntarily providing personal data serves the purpose of the data controller to offer the data subject contents or services which, due to the nature of the matter, 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 database of the data controller.

The data controller shall provide any data subject at any time upon request with information as to which personal data relating to the data subject are stored. Furthermore, the data 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 retain such data. The entire staff of the data controller shall be available to the data subject as contact persons in this context.

6. Subscription to our newsletter

On the website of IOGT Germany users have the possibility to subscribe to the newsletter of our association. The personal data transmitted to the data controller when ordering the newsletter is determined by the input mask used for this purpose.

IOGT Germany informs its users and partners at regular intervals by means of a newsletter about offers of the association. In principle, the newsletter of our association 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 to receive the newsletter.

For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail in the double opt-in procedure will be sent to the e-mail address entered for the first time by a person concerned for the purpose of sending the newsletter. This confirmation e-mail is used to check whether the owner of the e-mail address has authorised the receipt of the newsletter as the person concerned.

When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) to 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 person concerned at a later point in time and therefore serves to legally safeguard the data controller.

The personal data collected as part of a newsletter registration will only be used to send our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or registration, as might be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter offering or changes to the technical conditions. The personal data collected as part 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 dispatch, can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of the revocation of the consent an appropriate left is in each new type character. It is also possible at any time to unsubscribe from the newsletter dispatch directly on the website of the data controller or to inform the data controller of this in any other way.

7. Newsletter Tracking

IOGT Germany's newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A pixel-code is a miniature graphic that is embedded in e-mails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Using the embedded pixel-code, IOGT Germany can detect whether and when an e-mail was opened by a person concerned and which links in the e-mail were accessed by that person.

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 person concerned. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Affected persons are entitled at any time to revoke the relevant separate declaration of consent submitted via the double opt-in procedure. After a revocation these personal data will be deleted by the person responsible for the processing. Unsubscribing from the receipt of the newsletter will automatically be interpreted by IOGT Germany as a revocation.

8. Contact option via the website

The website of IOGT Germany contains, due to legal regulations, information which allows a quick electronic contact to our association 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 voluntarily by a data subject to the data controller will be stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.

9. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

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

If the storage purpose no longer applies or if a storage period prescribed by the European directive and regulation giver or another competent legislator expires, the personal data shall be blocked or deleted routinely and in accordance with the statutory provisions.

10. Rights of the data subject

  • a) Right to confirmation

    Every data subject shall have the right, granted by the European directive and regulation maker, to obtain from the controller confirmation as to whether personal data relating to him or her are being processed. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of confirmation, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.

  • b) Right of access

    Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European directive and regulation maker, to obtain at any time, free of charge, from the controller, information on the personal data relating to him which have been stored and a copy of that information. Furthermore, the European Data Protection Supervisor has granted the data subject access to the following information:

    1. the processing purposes
    2. the categories of personal data processed
    3. the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries or international organisations
    4. if possible, the planned duration for which the personal data will be stored or, if that is not possible, the criteria for determining that duration
    5. the existence of a right to the rectification or erasure of personal data concerning him or her or to the limitation of the processing carried out by the controller or of a right to object to such processing
    6. the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority

    8. the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, in accordance with Article 22(1) and (4) of the basic Regulation on data protection and, at least in these cases, meaningful information on the logic involved, the scope and the intended impact of such processing on the data subject

    The data subject also has the right to know whether personal data have been transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. If this is the case, the data subject shall also have the right to obtain information on the appropriate safeguards in connection with the transfer.

    If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of access, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.

  • c) Right to rectification

    Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European directive and regulation maker, to request the rectification without delay of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her. Furthermore, the data subject shall have the right, having regard to the purposes of the processing, to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary statement.

    If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of rectification, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.

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

    Any person data subject to the processing of personal data shall have the right, granted by the European directive and regulation, to require the controller to erase without delay personal data concerning him which are subject to one of the following conditions and to the extent that the processing is not necessary:

    1. The personal data have been collected for such purposes or processed in any other way for which they are no longer necessary.
    2. The data subject shall withdraw his/her consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the basic Regulation or Article 9(2)(a) of the basic Regulation and there shall be no other legal basis for the processing.
    3. The data subject shall object to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the basic Regulation and there shall be no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing or the data subject shall object to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) of the basic Regulation.
    4. Personal data have been processed unlawfully.
    5. The deletion of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the data controller is subject.
    6. The personal data were collected in relation to information society services provided in accordance with Article 8(1) of the basic Regulation on data protection.

    If one of the above reasons applies and a data subject wishes to have personal data stored at IOGT Germany deleted, he or she can contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee of IOGT Germany shall ensure that the request for deletion is complied with immediately.

    If the personal data have been made public by IOGT Germany and if our association as the person responsible is obliged to delete the personal data pursuant to Article 17 paragraph 1 DS-GVO, IOGT Germany shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform other persons responsible for data processing who process the published personal data that the person concerned has requested the deletion of all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data from these other persons responsible for data processing, insofar as the processing is not necessary. The employee of IOGT Germany will take the necessary steps in individual cases.

  • e) Right to limitation of processing

    Any person data subject to the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European directive and regulation, to request the controller to limit the processing if one of the following conditions is met:

    1. The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a period of time which allows the data controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
    2. 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.
    3. The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but the data subject needs them for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
    4. The data subject has objected to the processing under Article 21(1) DSGVO and it is not yet clear whether the controller's legitimate reasons outweigh those of the data subject.

    If one of the above conditions is met and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored at IOGT Germany, he or she can contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee of IOGT Germany shall arrange for the processing to be restricted.

  • f) Right to data transferability

    Any data subject involved in the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European directive and regulation, to obtain personal data concerning him or her which have been provided by the data subject to a controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. It shall also have the right to communicate such data to another controller without being hindered by the controller to whom the personal data have been disclosed, provided that the processing is based on the consent referred to in Article 6(1)(a) DSGVO or Article 9(2)(a) DSGVO or on a contract referred to in Article 6(1)(b) DSGVO and that the processing is carried out by automated means, provided that the processing is not 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, in exercising his right to data transferability pursuant to Article 20(1) DSGVO, the data subject shall have the right to obtain that the personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller to the extent that this is technically feasible and provided that this does not infringe the rights and freedoms of other persons.

    In order to assert the right to data transferability, the person concerned may contact an employee of IOGT Germany at any time.

  • g) Right of appeal

    Any person data subject to the processing of personal data shall have the right, granted by the European directive and regulation maker, to object at any time, on grounds relating to his particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him carried out pursuant to Article 6(1)(e) or (f) DSGVO. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

    IOGT Germany will no longer process the personal data in the event of objection unless we can prove compelling reasons for the processing worthy of protection which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the person concerned, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

    In addition, the data subject has the right to object to the processing of personal data concerning him by IOGT Germany for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) DSGVO on grounds arising from his particular situation, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest.

    In order to exercise the right to object, the person concerned may contact any employee of IOGT Germany or another employee directly. The data subject is also free to exercise his right of objection in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.

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

    Any person data subject to the processing of personal data shall have the right, granted by the European directive and regulation, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects upon him or her or significantly affects him or her in a similar manner, provided that the decision

    1. is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the person responsible, or
    2. is authorised by legislation of the Union or of the Member States to which the person responsible is subject and that legislation contains adequate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and the legitimate interests of the data subject, or
    3. with the express consent of the data subject.

    Is the decision

    1. necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the person responsible, or
    2. it shall be carried out with the express consent of the data subject,

    IOGT Germany shall take appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the person concerned, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the person responsible, to state his or her own position and to challenge the decision.

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

  • i) Right to revoke consent under data protection law

    Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European directive and regulation maker, 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 do so by contacting an employee of the controller.

11. Privacy Policy on the Use and Usage of Facebook

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

A social network is an Internet-based social meeting place, an online community that usually enables 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 enables the Internet community to provide personal or association-related information. Facebook enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friendship requests.

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

Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, 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 person concerned 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 found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_GB. As part of this technical process, Facebook obtains information about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.

If the person concerned is logged into Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes which specific page of our website the person concerned is visiting each time the person visits our website and for the entire duration of that person's 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 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 receives information through the Facebook component that the individual concerned has visited our website whenever the individual concerned is logged into Facebook at the same time as accessing our website, regardless of whether the individual concerned clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transferred to Facebook in this way, he or she can prevent the transfer by logging out of his or her Facebook account before accessing our website.

Facebook's published data policy, which is available at https://facebook.com/about/privacy/, 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 transmission to Facebook.

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

The data controller 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 Internet pages. A web analysis service collects data on, among other things, from which website a person concerned came to a website (so-called referrers), which subpages 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 costs and benefits 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 the web analysis via Google Analytics. This addition is used by Google to shorten and anonymise the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned if access to our Internet pages is from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us showing the activities on our website and to provide other services in connection with the use of our website.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. When the cookie is set, Google is able to analyse the use of our website. Each time you access 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, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission statements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned. Each time you visit our website, 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 share this personal data collected through the technical process with third parties.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as described above, by means of an appropriate setting of 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, it is possible for the person concerned 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. For this purpose, the person concerned must download and install a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout . This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information on visits to Internet pages may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered a contradiction by Google. If the data subject's information technology system is later deleted, formatted or reinstalled, 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 by another person within his/her sphere of control, the browser add-on may be reinstalled or reactivated.

Further information and Google's applicable privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/policies/privacy/ and http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/ Google Analytics is explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.com/intl/analytics/.

13. Privacy policy regarding the use of Google AdWords

The person responsible for the processing has integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to place ads both in Google's search engine results and in the Google advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-define keywords that will be used to display an ad in Google's search engine results only when the user uses the search engine to retrieve a keyword relevant search result. In the Google advertising network, the ads are distributed to topic-relevant Internet pages using an automatic algorithm and taking into account the previously defined keywords.

If a person concerned reaches our website via a Google advertisement, a so-called conversion cookie is stored on the information technology system of the person concerned by Google. What cookies are has already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and does not serve to identify the person concerned. If the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie is used to track whether certain subpages, such as the shopping cart of an online shop system, have been accessed on our website. The conversion cookie enables both we and Google to track whether a person who came to our website via an AdWords ad generated a turnover, i.e. completed or cancelled a purchase.

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to compile visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are in turn used by us to determine the total number of users who were referred to us via AdWords ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords ad and to optimise our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our association nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could be used to identify the person concerned.

The conversion cookie is used to store personal information, such as the Internet pages visited by the person concerned. Accordingly, each time you visit our website, 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 disclose personal data collected through this technical process to third parties.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as described above, by means of an appropriate setting of 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 conversion cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned.

15. Privacy policy on the use and enjoyment of Twitter

The data controller has integrated Twitter components into this website. Twitter is a multilingual, publicly accessible microblogging service on which users can publish and distribute so-called tweets, i.e. short messages limited to 280 characters. These short messages can be accessed by anyone, including those not registered on Twitter. However, the tweets are also displayed to the so-called followers of the respective user. Followers are other Twitter users who follow a user's tweets. Furthermore, Twitter makes it possible to address a broad audience via hashtags, links or retweets.

The operating company of Twitter is Twitter, Inc. 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

Each time one of the individual pages of this Internet site is accessed, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Twitter component (Twitter button) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Twitter component to download a representation of the corresponding Twitter component from Twitter. Further information on the Twitter buttons can be found at https://about.twitter.com/resources/buttons . As part of this technical process, Twitter obtains information about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned. The purpose of integrating the Twitter component is to enable our users to disseminate the content of this website, to make this website known in the digital world and to increase our visitor numbers.

If the person concerned is logged in to Twitter at the same time, Twitter recognizes which specific page of our website the person concerned is visiting each time the person concerned accesses our website and for the entire duration of that person's stay on our website. This information is collected by the Twitter component and assigned by Twitter to the respective Twitter account of the person concerned. If the person concerned clicks on one of the Twitter buttons integrated into our website, the data and information transmitted will be assigned to the personal Twitter user account of the person concerned and stored and processed by Twitter.

Twitter will always receive information via the Twitter component that the person concerned has visited our website if the person concerned is logged in to Twitter at the same time as accessing our website, regardless of whether the person concerned clicks on the Twitter component or not. If the data subject does not wish to transmit this information to Twitter in this way, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her Twitter account before accessing our website.

The current Twitter privacy policy can be found at https://twitter.com/privacy?lang=en.

16. Privacy Policy on the Use and Usage of YouTube

The data controller has integrated YouTube components into this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that enables video publishers to post video clips and other users to view, rate and comment on them free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete film and television programmes, but also music videos, trailers or videos made by users themselves can be accessed via the Internet portal.

The operating company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Each time a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated into one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the data controller, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective YouTube component to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Further information on YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/. As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google obtain information about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.

If the person concerned is logged into YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognizes which specific subpage of our website the person concerned is visiting by calling up a subpage containing a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the person concerned.

YouTube and Google will receive information through the YouTube component that the person concerned has visited our website whenever that person is logged into YouTube at the same time as accessing our website, regardless of whether that person clicks on a YouTube video or not. If the data subject does not want YouTube and Google to receive such information, they may prevent the transmission by logging out of their YouTube account before visiting our website.

The data protection regulations published by YouTube, which are available at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/, provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.

17. Legal basis for the processing

Article 6 I letter a DSGVO serves our association as a legal basis for processing operations in 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 that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 I letter b DSGVO. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services. If our association is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Article 6 I letter c DSGVO. 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 business were injured and his name, age, health insurance information or other vital information would have to be disclosed to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Article 6 I d DSGVO.

Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Article 6 I(f) DSGVO. Processing operations that 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 association or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not predominate. Such processing operations are permitted to us 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 data controller (recital 47 sentence 2 DSGVO).

18. 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 letter f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is the conduct of our business for the benefit of all our employees and shareholders.

19. Duration for which the personal data will be stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After this period has expired, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted unless they are no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.

20. Legal or contractual provisions relating to the provision of personal data; the need to conclude a contract; the obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; the possible consequences of not providing the personal data

We will inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner).

Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a person concerned makes personal data available to us which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our association concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract could not be concluded with the data subject.

Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject 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 a contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of not providing the personal data.

21. Existence of an automated decision-making process

As a responsible association, we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
