Data protection declaration

Thank you very much for your interest in our holiday home Marta. Data protection has a particularly high value for Holiday HOUSE Marta – Family Kuhn. A use of the internet pages of Holiday HOUSE Marta – Family Kuhn is basically possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a per-son concerned wishes to use special services of our company via our internet site, it may be neces-sary to process personal data. 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 Holiday HOUSE Marta – Family Kuhn. By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. In addition, this data protection declaration is intended to inform affect-ed persons of the rights to which they are entitled.

Holiday HOUSE Marta – Family Kuhn, as the person responsible for processing, has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as completely as possible. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmis-sions may have security gaps, so that 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.

1. Definitions

The data protection declaration of Holiday HOUSE Marta – Family Kuhn is based on the terms used by the European guidelines and ordinances when the basic data protection regulation (DS-GVO) was issued.

    Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (here-inafter 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, an online identifier, or one or more factors specific to the physical, physio-logical, 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 pro-cessed by the controller.

  • d) Restriction of processing

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

  • 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 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 per-son.

  • g) controller or controller responsible for processing

    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 per-sonal data.

However, authorities which may re-ceive personal data in the course of a specific investigation, in accordance with Union law or the law of the Member States, shall not be considered as recipients.

  • j) Third party

    A third party is any 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 con-troller or the processor, are entitled to process the personal data.

3. Cookies

The internet pages of Holiday HOUSE Marta – Family Kuhn use cookies. Cookies are text files which are filed and stored on a computer system via an internet browser.

Numerous internet pages and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called Cookie-ID. A cookie ID is a unique identification of the cookie. It consists of a sequence of lines through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the Internet pages and servers visited to distinguish the individual brows-er of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular Internet browser can be recognised and identified by means of the unique cookie ID.

By using cookies, Holiday HOUSE Marta – Family Kuhn can provide the users of this internet site with more user-friendly services, 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 recognise the users of our website. The pur-pose 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 basket.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding 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 Inter-net 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 Internet pages can be used to their full extent.

In addition to this, you can deactivate the cookies set at any time using the following checkboxes:

4. Collection of general data and information

The website of Holiday HOUSE Marta – Family Kuhn collects a number of general data and infor-mation every time the website is accessed by a person concerned or by an automated system. These general data and information are stored in the log files of the server. The (1) 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 which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access to the in-ternet page, (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 prevent danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using these general data and information Holiday HOUSE Marta – Family Kuhn does not draw conclusions about the person concerned. This information is rather required to (1) deliver the con-tents of our website correctly, (2) optimise the contents of our website and the advertising for it, (3) 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 sta-tistically evaluated by Holiday HOUSE Marta – Family Kuhn on the one hand and on the other hand with the aim to increase data protection and data security in our company in order to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the serv-er log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned.

5. Subscription to our newsletter

On the website of Holiday HOUSE Marta – Family Kuhn, users are given the opportunity to sub-scribe to the newsletter of our company. Which personal data is transmitted to the data controller when ordering the newsletter is determined by the input mask used for this purpose.
Holiday HOUSE Marta – Family Kuhn informs its customers and business partners at regular inter-vals by means of a newsletter about offers from 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 to receive the newsletter. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered for the first time by a person concerned for the purpose of receiving the newsletter using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail serves to check whether the owner of the e-mail address, as the person concerned, has authorised 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 these 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 there-fore serves the legal protection of the data controller.

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 nec-essary for the operation of the newsletter service or for registration, as might 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 re-voked at any time. For the purpose of revoking the consent, a corresponding link is included in eve-ry 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.

6. Newsletter tracking

The newsletter of Holiday HOUSE Marta – Family Kuhn contains so-called counting pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic which is embedded in such e-mails which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. By means of the embedded pixel-code, Holiday HOUSE Mar-ta – Family Kuhn can recognise whether and when an e-mail was opened by a person concerned and which links in the e-mail were called up 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 con-tent of future newsletters even better to the interests of the person concerned. This personal data is not passed on to third parties. Data subjects are entitled at any time to revoke the separate dec-laration of consent given in this regard using the double opt-in procedure. After revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the person responsible for processing. A cancellation of the receipt of the newsletter is automatically interpreted by Holiday HOUSE Marta – Family Kuhn as a revoca-tion.

7. Contact possibility via the internet page

Due to legal regulations, the website of Holiday HOUSE Marta – Family Kuhn contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our company as well as a direct communication with us, which also includes a general adress of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a person concerned contacts the person responsible for processing by e-mail or using a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the person concerned is automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis from a data subject to the data controller are stored for purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. These personal data are not disclosed to third parties.

8. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

The data controller processes and stores personal data of the data subject only for the time neces-sary to achieve the purpose of storage or if provided for by the European Directive and Regulation or by any other law or regulation to which the data controller is subject.

    10. Privacy policy on the use and application of Adobe Analytics (Omniture) / Adobe Marketing Cloud

    The data controller has integrated components of the Adobe company on this website. Adobe Ana-lytics (Omniture) or the Adobe Marketing Cloud (hereafter referred to as “Omniture”) is a tool that enables more efficient online marketing and web analysis. Omniture is a part of the Adobe Market-ing Cloud. The Adobe Marketing Cloud enables real-time analysis of visitor flows to websites. The real-time analyses include project reports and allow for ad hoc analysis of website visitors. Custom-er interactions are presented in such a way that the data controller has a better overview of the online activities of the users of the website by displaying the data in simple and interactive dash-boards and converting them into reports. This enables the data controller to obtain information in real time and thus to identify problems more quickly.

    The company operating these services is Adobe Systems Software Ireland Limited, 4-6 River-walk, Citywest Business Campus, Dublin 24, Ireland.

    Omniture places a cookie on the data subject’s information technology system (cookies have been explained in advance, see above). The data controller ensures, by means of a server setting, that the tracking data transmitted to the Adobe data centre are made anonymous prior to geolocalisa-tion. The anonymisation is implemented by replacing the last part of the IP address. The data con-troller has made server-side settings that allow the IP address of the data subject to be anony-mised independently of each other prior to processing for geolocalisation and range measurement. On behalf of the data controller, Adobe will use the data and information obtained via our website to evaluate the user behaviour of the data subject. Furthermore, Adobe will use the data to create reports on user activities on our behalf and to provide further services for our company in connec-tion with the use of our website. Adobe does not combine the IP address of the person concerned with other personal data.

    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 Omniture from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, the cookies already set by Omniture can be deleted at any time via an in-ternet browser or other software programs.

    Furthermore, the data subject has the possibility of opposing and preventing the collection of data generated by the Adobe cookie and relating to a use of this website, as well as the processing of such data by Adobe. To do so, the person concerned must press the unsubscribe button under the link http://www.adobe.com/de/privacy/opt-out.html, which sets an opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie set with the objection is stored on the information technology system used by the person concerned. If the cookies are deleted on the data subject’s system after an opposition, the data subject must access the link again and set a new opt-out cookie.

    However, with the setting of the opt-out cookie there is a possibility that the data subject may no longer be able to use the full functionality of the data controller’s website.

    Adobe’s current privacy policy can be found at http://www.adobe.com/de/privacy.html

    11. Data protection provisions on the use and application of Facebook

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

    A social network is a social meeting place operated on the Internet, an online community that gen-erally 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 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 Can-ada, 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 website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrat-ed, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is auto-matically prompted by the relevant Facebook component to download a representation of the relevant Facebook component from Facebook. A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=de_DE. In the course of this technical process, Facebook is informed which specific subpage of our website is visited by the per-son concerned.

    If the person concerned is logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook will recognise 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 their stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook ac-count of the person concerned. If the person concerned presses one of the Facebook buttons in-tegrated on our website, for example the “Like” button, or if the person concerned makes a com-ment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the person con-cerned 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 takes place regardless of whether the person concerned clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the person concerned does not wish this information to be transmitted to Facebook in this way, 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 can be accessed at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains which setting options 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.

    12. Privacy policy on the use and application of Google AdSense

    The data controller has integrated Google AdSense on this website. Google AdSense is an online service that enables the placement of advertising on third party sites. Google AdSense is based on an algorithm which selects the advertisements displayed on third party sites according to the con-tent of the respective third party site. Google AdSen-se allows an interest-based targeting of the internet user, which is implemented by generating individual user profiles.

    The operating company of the Google AdSense component is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

    The purpose of the Google AdSense component is the integration of advertisements on our web-site. Google-AdSense sets a cookie on the information technology system of the person con-cerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Alphabet Inc. is able to analyse the use of our website. Each time the data controller accesses one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google AdSense component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data subject’s information technolo-gy system is automatically prompted by the respective Google AdSense component to transmit data to Alphabet Inc. for the purposes of online advertising and the billing of commissions. As part of this technical process, Alphabet Inc. obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which serves Alphabet Inc. among other things to trace the origin of visi-tors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission invoicing.

    The person concerned can prevent cookies from being set by our website, as 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 setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Al-phabet Inc. from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Alphabet Inc. can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

    Google AdSense also uses so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in Internet pages to enable log file recording and log file analysis, which enables statisti-cal evaluation. The embedded pixel-code enables Alphabet Inc. to recognise whether and when an Internet page was opened by a person concerned and which links were clicked on by the person concerned. Counting pixels are used, among other things, to evaluate the flow of visitors to a web-site.

    Through Google AdSense, personal data and information, which includes the IP address and is nec-essary for the collection and billing of the displayed advertisements, is transferred to Alphabet Inc. in the United States of America. This personal data is stored and processed in the United States of America. Under certain circumstances, Alphabet Inc. may pass on this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.

    Google AdSense is explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.de/intl/de/adsense/start/.

    13. Data protection regulations to the application and use of Google Analytics (with Anonymisation function)

    The person responsible for processing has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anon-ymisation 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 about the website from which a person concerned 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 mainly used to optimise an internet page and for cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.

    The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

    The data controller uses the suffix “_gat._anonymizeIp” for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the internet connection of the person concerned is short-ened and made anonymous by Google if the access to our internet pages takes place from a mem-ber 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. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website in order to compile online reports for us which show the activities on our website and to provide further 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. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the person responsible for processing and on which a Google Analytics com-ponent 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. Within the scope of this technical proce-dure, Google receives knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person con-cerned, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subse-quently to enable commission calculations.

    By means of the cookie, personal information such as the access time, the location from which ac-cess was made and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned is stored. Whenever our website is visited, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet con-nection 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 via the technical process to third parties.

    The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as 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 the collection of data generated by Google Analy-tics and relating to the use of this website, as well as to the processing of this data by Google, and to prevent such processing. For this purpose, the person concerned must download and install a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This brows-er add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information on visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google to be an objection. If the information technology system of the person concerned is delet-ed, formatted or reinstalled at a later date, the person concerned must re-install 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 attributable to his or 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.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail at this link https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.

    14. Data protection regulations on the use and application of Google AdWords

    The data controller has integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an internet advertising service that allows advertisers to display ads in Google’s search engine results as well as in the Google advertising network. Google AdWords enables an advertiser to specify pre-determined keywords by means of which an advertisement is only displayed in Google’s search engine results if the user calls up a keyword relevant search result with the search engine. In the Google advertising network, the advertisements are distributed to relevant internet pages by means of an automatic algorithm and in compliance with the previously determined keywords.

    The company operating the Google AdWords services is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

    The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our website by displaying interest-relevant adver-tising on the websites of third parties and in the search engine results of the Google search engine and by displaying third-party advertising on our website.

    If a person concerned reaches our website via a Google advertisement, a so-called version 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 expired, the conversion cookie is used to determine whether certain sub-pages, for example the shopping basket from an online shop system, have been called up on our website. The conversion cookie enables us and Google to track whether a person who has reached our website via an AdWords ad generated sales, i.e. whether he or she has completed or abandoned a purchase.

    The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to create visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are in turn used by us to determine the total number of users who have been 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 company 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 websites visited by the person concerned. Whenever our website is visited, 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 via the technical process to third parties.

    The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as 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 conversion cookie on the information technology system of the person con-cerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

    Furthermore, the person concerned has the opportunity to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do so, the person concerned must access www.google.de/settings/ads from any of the Internet browsers he or she uses and make the desired settings there.

    Further information and Google’s applicable privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

    15. Privacy policy on the use and application of Instagram

    The data controller has integrated components of the Instagram service on this website. Instagram is a service that qualifies as an audiovisual platform and allows users to share photos and videos and also to disseminate such data in other social networks.

    The operating company of the Instagram service is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Squar-e, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland.

    Each time the data controller accesses any of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which an Instagram component (Insta Button) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automati-cally prompted by the relevant Instagram component to download a representation of the relevant Instagram component. In the course of this technical process, Instagram is informed which specific page of our website is visited by the person concerned.

    If the person concerned is logged on to Instagram at the same time, Instagram recognises which specific page the person concerned is visiting each time the person concerned calls up our website and for the entire duration of their stay on our website. This information is collected by the Insta-gram component and assigned by Instagram to the respective Instagram account of the person concerned. If the person concerned clicks on one of the Instagram buttons integrated on our web-site, the data and information transferred with it is assigned to the personal Instagram user account of the person concerned and stored and processed by Instagram.

    Instagram will receive information through the Instagram component that the data subject has visited our website whenever the data subject is logged on to Instagram at the same time as ac-cessing our website, whether or not the data subject clicks on the Instagram component. If the data subject does not wish this information to be sent to Instagram, he/she can prevent it from being sent by logging out of his/her Instagram account before accessing our website.

    16. Privacy policy on the use and application of Jetpack for WordPress

    The data controller has integrated Jetpack on this website. Jetpack is a WordPress plug-in which offers additional functions to the operator of a website based on WordPress. Among other things, Jetpack allows the website operator to obtain an overview of the visitors to the site. By displaying related articles and publications or the possibility of sharing content on the site, it is also possible to increase the number of visitors. Furthermore, security functions are integrated into Jetpack, so that a website using Jetpack is better protected against brute force attacks. Jetpack also optimises and speeds up the loading of images integrated into the website.

    The Jetpack plug-in for WordPress is operated by Aut O’Mattic A8C Ireland Ltd, Business Centre, No.1 Lower Mayor Street, International Financial Services Centre, Dublin 1, Ireland.

    Jetpack places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has been explained above. Each time a user accesses any of the pages of this website operated by the data controller and on which a Jetpack component has been integrated, the Inter-net browser on the data subject’s IT system is automatically prompted by the Jetpack component to transmit data to Automattic for analysis. As part of this technical process, Automattic obtains knowledge of data which is subsequently used to create an overview of the visits to the website. The data obtained in this way is used to analyse the behaviour of the data subject who has ac-cessed the website of the person responsible for the processing and is evaluated with the aim of optimising the website. The data collected via the Jetpack component will not be used to identify the data subject without the prior explicit consent of the data subject. The data is also brought to Quantcast’s attention. Quantcast uses the data for the same purposes as Automattic.

    The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as 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 setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Au-tomattic/Quantcast from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person con-cerned. Furthermore, cookies already set by Automattic can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.

    Furthermore, the person concerned has the possibility to object to and prevent the collection of data generated by the Jetpack cookie and relating to the use of this website, as well as the pro-cessing of such data by Automattic/Quantcast. To do so, the person concerned must press the opt-out button at the link https://www.quantcast.com/opt-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 opposition, the data subject must access the link again and set a new opt-out cookie.

    However, with the setting of the opt-out cookie there is a possibility that the data subject may no longer be able to use the full functionality of the data controller’s website.

    Automattic’s current privacy policy can be found at https://automattic.com/privacy/. Quant-cast’s applicable privacy policy is available at https://www.quantcast.com/privacy/.

    17. Privacy policy on the use and application of Pinterest

    The data controller has integrated components of Pinterest Inc. on this website. Pinterest is a so-called 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. Pinterest enables the users of the social network to publish collections of pictures and individual images and descriptions on virtual pinboards (so-called pinning), which can then be shared by other users (so-called repinning) or commented on.

    The operating company of Pinterest is Pinterest Europe Ltd, Palmerston House, 2nd Floor, Fe-nian Street, Dublin 2, Ireland.

    Each time a user accesses one of the pages of this website, operated by the Data Controller and which contains a Pinterest component (Pinterest plug-in), the browser on the computer system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the Pinterest component to download a repre-sentation of the corresponding Pinterest component from Pinterest. More information on Pinter-est is available at https://pinterest.com/. This technical process enables Pinterest to know which specific page of our website is visited by the person concerned.

    If the person concerned is also logged on to Pinterest, Pinterest will know which specific page of our website is visited by the person concerned each time he/she visits our website and for the en-tire duration of his/her stay on our website. This information is collected by the Pinterest compo-nent and assigned by Pinterest to the relevant Pinterest account of the person concerned. If the person concerned presses a Pinterest button integrated on our website, Pinterest assigns this in-formation to the personal Pinterest user account of the person concerned and stores this personal data.

    The Pinterest component informs Pinterest that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged on to Pinterest at the same time as accessing our website, regardless of whether or not the data subject clicks on the Pinterest component. If the data subject does not wish to re-ceive this information from Pinterest, he/she can prevent it from being sent by logging out of his/her Pinterest account before accessing our website.

    The Privacy Policy published by Pinterest, which can be consulted at https://about.pinterest.com/privacy-policy, provides information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by Pinterest.

    18. Privacy policy on the use and application of YouTube

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

    YouTube is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

    Each time a user accesses one of the pages of this website operated by the data controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the IT system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the relevant YouTube component to download a representation of the relevant YouTube component from YouTube. Further infor-mation on YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/. In the course of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google are informed which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.

    If the person concerned is logged on to YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognises which spe-cific 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 receive information via the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website whenever the data subject is logged on to YouTube at the same time as he or she visits our website, regardless of whether or not the data subject clicks on a YouTube video. If the data subject does not wish this information to be sent to YouTube and Google, he or she can prevent this by logging out of his or her YouTube account before visiting our website.

    The data protection provisions published by YouTube, which can be accessed at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/, provide information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.

    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 person concerned is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations required for the delivery of goods or the 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 for the implementation of 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 person concerned or of 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.

    Ultimately, 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, pro-vided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not 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 legit-imate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible (Recital 47, sentence 2 DS-GVO).

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

    21. Duration for which personal data are stored

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

  • 22. Legal or contractual provisions on the provision of personal data;Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-supply

  • 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 person concerned provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person con-cerned 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 to us, the person concerned must con-tact 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.
