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 possibility of objecting to and preventing the collection of the data generated by Google Analytics for use of this website as well as the processing of this data by Google. To do this, the person must download and install a browser add-on at tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

8. Is there a data transfer to social media providers?

We are currently using the following social media plug-ins: Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Insta-gram

We use the so-called two-click solution. In other words, when you visit our site, initially no personal data is passed on to the providers of the plug-ins. The provider of the plug-in can be recognized by the marking on the box above the first letter or the logo. We give you the opportunity to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only if you click on the marked field and activate it, the plug-in provider receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online service. In addition, the items listed under 2.1. transmitted in accordance with this declaration. In the case of Facebook, according to the respective provider in Germany, the IP address is anonymized immediately after collection. By activating the plug-in, personal data will be transmitted by you to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (in the case of American US residents). Since the plug-in provider carries out the data collection, in particular via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies before clicking on the greyed box via the security settings of your browser

We have no influence on the collected data and data processing operations, nor are we aware of the full extent of data collection, the purpose of processing, the retention periods. We also have no information to delete the data collected by the plug-in provider

The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as usage profiles and uses them for purposes of advertising, market research and / or customized design of his website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for non-logged-in users) for the purpose of displaying needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You are entitled to a right of objection to the formation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this. The plug-ins allow us to interact with social networks and other users so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f General Data Protection Regulation.

The data transfer takes place regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in to the plug-in provider, your data collected from us will be assigned directly to your existing account with the plug-in provider. If you press the activated button and for example, if you link the page, the plug-in provider also stores this information in your user account and shares it with your contacts publicly. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as this will prevent you from being assigned to your profile with the plug-in provider.

For more information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the privacy statements of these providers provided below. There you will also find further information about your rights and settings options for the protection of your privacy.

9. Are data processed outside the European Union?

For the processing of your data, we also use service providers located in third countries outside the European Union.

Countries outside the European Union handle the protection of personal data differently than countries within the European Union. There is currently no decision by the EU Commission that these third countries generally provide an adequate level of protection. We have therefore taken specific measures to ensure that your data is processed as securely in the third countries as it is within the European Union. With service providers in third countries, we conclude the data protection contract (standard privacy clauses) provided by the Commission of the European Union for the processing of personal data in third countries. This provides appropriate guarantees for the protection of your data with service providers in the third country. You can request a copy of this privacy policy by using the contact details above.

10. How long is the data stored?

Basically, we only save your data for as long as we need it for the respective processing purposes. If the data is no longer required for the fulfillment of the processing purposes specified in this data protection notice, it will be deleted unless it is still necessary to retain it in order to fulfill commercial or taxation obligations. As a rule, we delete your data according to these deadlines or set the deletion period according to these criteria:

  • customer account data after termination of the user relationship;
  • data on the newsletter after the revocation of the consent;
  • data on purchases made at the online store ten years after completion of the purchase;
  • data on data collected when entering a competition two months after the end of the competition;
  • data on a customer service request, typically 25 months, no later than six years after completion of the transaction;
  • Data on an application for an advertised position six months after the application process has been completed.
