Privacy

I am very pleased about your interest in my website. Data protection has a particularly high priority for me. The use of my website is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special services of my enterprise via my website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, I will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to my websites. By means of this data protection declaration, I would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by me. Furthermore, data subjects are informed about their rights by means of this privacy policy.

As the controller, I have implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can always have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to me by alternative means, for example by telephone.

Definitions

The data protection declaration of my website is based on the terms used by the European Directive and Ordinance when issuing the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). My privacy policy should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for my customers and business partners. To ensure this, I would like to explain in advance the terminology used.

I use the following terms, among others, in this Privacy Policy:

Personal data

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

Person concerned

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

Processing

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

Restriction of processing

Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.

Profiling

Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data that consists of using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects relating to that natural person’s job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or change of location.

Pseudonymization

Pseudonymization 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 such additional information is kept separate and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

Controller or person responsible for the processing

The controller or 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 determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for under Union or Member State law.

Data processor

Auftragsverarbeiter ist eine natürliche oder juristische Person, Behörde, Einrichtung oder andere Stelle, die personenbezogene Daten im Auftrag des Verantwortlichen verarbeitet.

Recipient

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

Third party

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

Consent

Consent shall mean any freely given indication of the data subject’s wishes for the specific case in an informed and unambiguous manner in the form of a statement or any other unambiguous affirmative act by which the data subject indicates that he or she consents to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

Name and address of the controller

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

Collection of general data and information

My website collects a series of general data and information with each call of the website by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following data may be collected: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that 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 that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on my information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, I do not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed (1) to deliver the contents of my website correctly, (2) to optimize the contents of my website and the advertising for these, (3) to ensure the long-term functionality of my information technology systems and the technology of my website, and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. Therefore, the anonymously collected data and information is, on the one hand, statistically analyzed by me and, on the other hand, it is evaluated with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security, so that ultimately an optimal level of protection is ensured for the personal data I process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.

Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

Der für die Verarbeitung Verantwortliche verarbeitet und speichert personenbezogene Daten der betroffenen Person nur für den Zeitraum, der zur Erreichung des Speicherungszwecks erforderlich ist oder sofern dies durch den Europäischen Richtlinien- und Verordnungsgeber oder einen anderen Gesetzgeber in Gesetzen oder Vorschriften, welchen der für die Verarbeitung Verantwortliche unterliegt, vorgesehen wurde.

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

Rights of the data subject

Right to confirmation

Each data subject shall have the right, granted by the European Directive and the Regulation, to obtain confirmation from the controller as to whether or not personal data concerning him or her are being processed. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right, he or she may, at any time, contact me.

Right to information

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to obtain at any time from the controller, free of charge, information about the personal data stored about him or her and a copy of that information. Furthermore, the European Directive and Regulation has granted the data subject access to the following information:

  • the purposes of processing
  • the categories of personal data processed
  • the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular in the case of recipients in third countries or international organizations
  • if possible, the planned duration for which the personal data will be stored or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining this duration
  • the existence of a right to obtain the rectification or erasure of personal data concerning him or her, or to obtain the restriction of processing by the controller, or a right to object to such processing
  • the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority
  • if the personal data are not collected from the data subject: Any available information about the origin of the data
  • The existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, pursuant to Article 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR and – at least in these cases – meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the scope and intended effects

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

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to information, he or she may contact me at any time.

Right to rectification

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to request the immediate rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her. Furthermore, the data subject has the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data – also by means of a supplementary declaration – taking into account the purposes of the processing.

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

Right to erasure (right to be forgotten)

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, to obtain from the controller the erasure without delay of personal data concerning him or her, where one of the following reasons applies and insofar as the processing is not necessary:

  • The personal data were collected or otherwise processed for such purposes for which they are no longer necessary.
  • The data subject revokes the consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR or Art. 9(2)(a) GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
  • The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) GDPR.
  • The personal data have been processed unlawfully.
  • The erasure of the personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
  • The personal data has been collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Article 8(1) of the GDPR.

If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to arrange for the deletion of personal data stored by me, he or she may, at any time, contact me. I will then arrange for the deletion request to be complied with immediately.

If the personal data have been made public by me and I am obliged as a data controller pursuant to Article 17 (1) of the Data Protection Regulation to delete the personal data, I shall implement reasonable measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the cost of implementation, in order to inform other data controllers which process the published personal data that the data subject has requested from those other data controllers to delete all links to or copies or replications of the personal data, unless the processing is necessary. I will arrange the necessary in individual cases.

Right to restriction of processing

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, to obtain from the controller the restriction of processing if one of the following conditions is met:

  • The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
  • The processing is unlawful, the data subject objects to the erasure of the personal data and requests instead 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 it for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
  • The data subject has objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) of the GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.

If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by me, he or she may, at any time, contact me. I will arrange the restriction of the processing.

Right to data portability

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which have been provided by the data subject to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. He or she also has the right to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data have been provided, provided that the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR or Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR and the processing is carried out by automated means, 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 portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, 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 adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other individuals.

To assert the right to data portability, the data subject may contact me at any time.

Right to object

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to object at any time, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

Ich verarbeite die personenbezogenen Daten im Falle des Widerspruchs nicht mehr, es sei denn, ich kann zwingende schutzwürdige Gründe für die Verarbeitung nachweisen, die den Interessen, Rechten und Freiheiten der betroffenen Person überwiegen, oder die Verarbeitung dient der Geltendmachung, Ausübung oder Verteidigung von Rechtsansprüchen.

If I process personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data for such marketing. This also applies to the profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to me to the processing for direct marketing purposes, I will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out by me for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the Data Protection Regulation, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.

To exercise the right to object, the data subject may contact me directly. The data subject is also free, in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to exercise his/her right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.

Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling

Any data subject concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right, granted by the European Directive and the Regulation, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him or her, unless the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is permitted by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject, and that law contains suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is based on the data subject’s explicit consent.

If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or (2) it is made with the data subject’s explicit consent, I shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, which include at least the right to obtain the data subject’s involvement on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.

If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated decisions, he or she may, at any time, contact me.

Right to revoke consent under data protection law

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to withdraw consent to the processing of personal data at any time.

If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw consent, he or she may, at any time, contact me.

Privacy policy on the use and application of Shariff

I have integrated the Shariff component on this website. The Shariff component provides social media buttons that are privacy compliant. Shariff was developed for the German computer magazine c’t and is published via GitHub, Inc.

Entwickler der Komponente ist GitHub, Inc. 88 Colin P. Kelly Junior Street, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA.

Usually, the button solutions provided by the social networks already transmit personal data to the respective social network when a user visits a website in which a social media button has been integrated. By using the Shariff component, personal data is only transmitted to social networks when the visitor to a website actively clicks one of the social media buttons. Further information on the Shariff component is provided by the computer magazine c’t at http://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/Datenschutz-und-Social-Media-Der-c-t-Shariff-ist-im-Einsatz-2470103.html. The purpose of using the Shariff component is to protect the personal data of visitors to our website and at the same time to enable us to integrate a button solution for social networks on this website.

Further information and the applicable privacy policy of GitHub can be found at https://help.github.com/articles/github-privacy-policy/.

Legal basis of processing

Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR dient mir als Rechtsgrundlage für Verarbeitungsvorgänge, bei denen wir eine Einwilligung für einen bestimmten Verarbeitungszweck einholen. Ist die Verarbeitung personenbezogener Daten zur Erfüllung eines Vertrags, dessen Vertragspartei die betroffene Person ist, erforderlich, wie dies beispielsweise bei Verarbeitungsvorgängen der Fall ist, die für eine Lieferung von Waren oder die Erbringung einer sonstigen Leistung oder Gegenleistung notwendig sind, so beruht die Verarbeitung auf Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. Gleiches gilt für solche Verarbeitungsvorgänge die zur Durchführung vorvertraglicher Maßnahmen erforderlich sind, etwa in Fällen von Anfragen zur unser

Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves me as the 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 a delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If my company is subject to a legal obligation by which a processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR.
Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. 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 protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were 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 GDPR).

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 GDPR, my legitimate interest is the conduct of my business for the benefit of my well-being.

Duration for which the personal data are stored

The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective statutory 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.

Legal or contractual requirements to provide the personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision

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

Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide me with personal data that must subsequently be processed by me. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide me with personal data if my company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded.

Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject must contact me. I 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 of not providing the personal data would be.

Privacy policy on the use and application of Matomo

I have integrated the Matomo component on this website. Matomo is an open source software tool for web analysis. Web analysis is the collection, compilation and evaluation of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis tool collects data about the website from which a data subject came to a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is predominantly used for the optimization of a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.

The software is operated on my server, the data protection sensitive log files are stored exclusively on this server.

The purpose of the Matomo component is to analyze the flow of visitors to our website. Among other things, I use the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of this website in order to compile online reports showing the activities on my web pages.

Matomo does not set any cookies in the actual sense on the information technology system of the data subject. Only a session cookie is used to determine whether visitors to my website have made use of the following opt-out option.

Furthermore, the data subject has the possibility to object to the collection of data generated by Matomo and related to the use of this website and to prevent such collection. To do this, the data subject must either set “Do Not Track” in your browser or take the following path.

In addition, there is namely the possibility to prevent the collection by Matomo by setting an opt-out cookie:

Further information and the applicable privacy policy of Matomo can be found at https://matomo.org/privacy/.
