  • 1 Warning note on contentThe
    free and freely accessible content of this website was created with the greatest possible care. However, the provider of this website does not guarantee the accuracy and timeliness of the free and freely accessible journalistic guides and news. Contributions marked by name reflect the opinion of the respective author and not always the opinion of the provider. No contractual relationship is established between the user and the provider solely by calling up the free and freely accessible content; in this respect, the provider’s will to legally bind is lacking.

    § 2 External LinksThis
    website contains links to third-party websites (“external links”). These websites are subject to the liability of the respective operators. When the external links were first established, the provider checked the external content for possible violations of the law. At that time, no violations of the law were apparent. The provider has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design and content of the linked pages. The inclusion of external links does not mean that the provider adopts the content behind the reference or link as his own. A constant control of the external links is not reasonable for the provider without concrete evidence of legal violations. However, if we become aware of any legal infringements, such external links will be deleted immediately.

    § 3 Copyright and ancillary copyrightsThe
     content published on this website is subject to German copyright and ancillary copyrights. Any use not permitted by German copyright and ancillary copyright law requires the prior written consent of the provider or the respective copyright holder. This applies in particular to duplication, editing, translation, storage, processing or reproduction of content in databases or other electronic media and systems.

     special conditions for individual uses of this website deviate from the aforementioned paragraphs, this will be expressly pointed out at the appropriate point. In this case, the special terms of use shall apply in each individual case.

     the website, customers, suppliers, interested parties, applicants, employees, employees of customers or suppliers,

The data subjects are collectively referred to as “users”.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

In the following we inform you about the legal basis of the processing of personal data:

  1. If we have obtained your consent for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
  2. If the processing is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, which take place at your request, Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
  3. If the processing is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject (e.g. legal storage obligations), Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. c) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
  4. If the processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. d) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
  5. If the processing is necessary to protect our or the legitimate interests of a third party and your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms do not prevail in this respect, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) DS-GVO is the legal basis.

Disclosure of personal data to third parties and contract processors

Without your consent we do not pass on any data to third parties. Should this nevertheless be the case, then the passing on takes place on the basis of the aforementioned legal bases, e.g. with the passing on of data to online payment providers for the fulfilment of the contract or due to a court order or due to a legal obligation to hand over the data for the purpose of criminal prosecution, for danger defence or for the enforcement of the rights to intellectual property. 
We also use contract processors (external service providers, e.g. for the web hosting of our websites and databases) to process your data. If data are passed on to processors within the framework of an agreement on order processing, this is always done in accordance with Art. 28 DS-GVO. We carefully select our contract processors, check them regularly and have been granted the right to issue instructions with regard to the data. In addition, the contract processors must have taken appropriate technical and organisational measures and comply with the data protection regulations in accordance with BDSG n.F. and DS-GVO.

Transfer of data to third countries

The adoption of the European Data Protection Basic Regulation (DS-GVO) created a uniform basis for data protection in Europe. Your data will therefore mainly be processed by companies for which DS-GVO applies. Should the processing take place by services of third parties outside the European Union or the European Economic Area, these third parties must satisfy the special conditions of Art. 44 et seq. of the European Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. DS-GVO. This means that the processing takes place on the basis of special guarantees, such as the official recognition by the EU Commission of a level of data protection equivalent to that of the EU or the observance of officially recognised specific contractual obligations, the so-called “standard contractual clauses”. For US companies, submission to the so-called “Privacy Shield”, the data protection agreement between the EU and the USA, fulfils these requirements.

Deletion of data and storage duration

Unless otherwise expressly stated in this data protection declaration, your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for which it was stored no longer applies, unless its further storage is necessary for the purposes of proof or statutory storage obligations stand in the way of this. This includes, for example, obligations under commercial law to retain business letters in accordance with § 257 (1) HGB (6 years) as well as obligations under tax law to retain documents in accordance with § 147 (1) AO (10 years). If the prescribed retention period expires, your data will be blocked or deleted, unless storage is still necessary for the conclusion of a contract or for the fulfilment of the contract.

Existence of an automated decision making process

We do not use automatic decision making or profiling.

Provision of our website and creation of logfiles

  1. If you only use our website for information purposes (i.e. no registration and no other transmission of information), we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. If you wish to view our website, we collect the following data: – IP address;
    – Internet service provider of the user;
     – date and time of the request;
     – browser type;

     – content of the request;
     – time zone;
     – access status/HTTP status code;
     – data volume;
     – websites from which the request comes;
     – operating system. 
    These data will not be stored together with other personal data of yours.
  2. These data serve the purpose of the user-friendly, functional and safe delivery of our website to you with functions and contents as well as their optimization and statistical evaluation.
  3. The legal basis for this is our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S.1 lit. f) DS-GVO, which also lies in the above purposes.
  4. For security reasons, we store this data in server log files for a storage period of 6 months days. After expiry of this period, these will be automatically deleted, unless we need their storage for evidence purposes in the event of attacks on the server infrastructure or other legal violations.

cookies

  1. We use so-called cookies when you visit our website. Cookies are small text files that your Internet browser stores on your computer. When you visit our website again, these cookies provide information to automatically recognize you. The information obtained in this way serves the purpose of technically and economically optimising our web offers and enabling you to access our website more easily and securely. When you access our website, we will inform you about the use of cookies for the aforementioned purposes and how you can object to them or prevent their storage (“opt-out”) by means of a reference to our data protection declaration. Our website uses session cookies, persistent cookies and third party cookies:

    – Session cookies: We use so-called cookies to recognize multiple use of an offer by the same user (e.g. if you have logged in to determine your login status). When you visit our site again, these cookies provide information to automatically recognize you. The information obtained in this way is used to optimise our offers and make it easier for you to access our website. When you close your browser or log out, the session cookies are deleted.

    – Persistent cookies: These are automatically deleted after a specified period, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete cookies at any time in the security settings of your browser.

    – Third-party cookies: Depending on your preferences, you can configure your browser settings to refuse, for example, acceptance of third-party cookies or all cookies. However, we would like to point out at this point that you may not be able to use all the functions of this website. You can read more about these cookies in the respective privacy statements of the third party providers.

  2. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. lit. b) DS-GVO, if the cookies are set to initiate the contract, e.g. for orders, and otherwise we have a legitimate interest in the effective functionality of the website, so that in this case Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
  3. Objection and “Opt-Out”: You can generally prevent cookies from being saved on your hard drive by selecting “do not accept cookies” in your browser settings. However, this may result in a functional limitation of our offers. You may opt out of the use of third party cookies for advertising purposes by opting out of this American website (https://optout.aboutads.info) or this European website (http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/).

Processing of contracts

  1. We process inventory data (e.g. company, title/academic degree, names and addresses as well as contact data of users, e-mail), contract data (e.g. services used, names of contact persons) and payment data (e.g. bank details, payment history) for the purpose of fulfilling our contractual obligations (knowledge of who is the contractual partner; justification, content design and processing of the contract; checking the plausibility of the data) and services (e.g. contacting customer service) in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit b) DS-GVO. The entries marked as mandatory in online forms are required for the conclusion of the contract.
  2. This data will not be passed on to third parties unless it is necessary to pursue our claims (e.g. transfer to a lawyer for collection) or to fulfil the contract (e.g. transfer of data to a payment provider) or unless there is a legal obligation to do so pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. c) DS-GVO.
  3. We may also process the information you provide in order to inform you about other interesting products in our portfolio or to send you e-mails with technical information.
  4. The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. This is the case for the inventory and contract data when the data is no longer required for the performance of the contract and no claims can be asserted from the contract because they are statute-barred (warranty: two years / standard limitation period: three years). We are obliged by commercial and tax law to store your address, payment and order data for a period of ten years. However, when the contract is terminated after three years, we restrict the processing, i.e. your data will only be used to comply with legal obligations. Information in the user account remains until its deletion.

  3. The legal bases are Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b) and f) DS-GVO.
  4. We do not review your comments before publishing them. In the event of complaints from third parties, we reserve the right to delete your comments.

  5. The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for achieving the purpose for which they were collected or the execution of the contract because the contract was terminated.

You can read the forum without registration and in case of registration you can publish contributions and topics under pseudonym. There is no obligation to use a clear name. After registration via the online form in the forum, you will receive a confirmation email to verify your data, with which you can confirm your registration with a mouse click (“double opt-in procedure”). With the activation of your account by the responsible person, the free forum usage contract comes into effect (conclusion of contract). If you do not confirm your registration by mouse click, your registration will be deleted within 6 months hours.
  2. If we have activated your account, we store all activities in the forum, in particular your public topics and contributions, your profile data, your private messages, your signature, your account pinboard and your reputation, in order to operate the forum, in addition to your registration data, until you unsubscribe.

We store your e-mail address and name for the purpose of contacting you if third parties should legally object to your contents.
  3. The legal bases are Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b) and f) DS-GVO.
  4. If your forum account is deleted, your forum contributions and topics remain visible for all readers and can be found via search engines and are marked with “guest”.

After the deletion of the account an allocation and deletion of the contributions is no longer possible.

The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of a contact request or e-mail, letter or fax is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f) DS-GVO. The person responsible has a justified interest in the processing and storage of the data in order to be able to answer user enquiries, to preserve evidence for reasons of liability and to be able to comply with his legal obligation to store business letters.

We store requests from users who have an account or contract with us for a period of two years after termination of the contract. In the case of statutory archiving obligations, deletion takes place after their expiration: end of commercial (6 years) and tax (10 years) retention obligation.

Newsletter

  1. You can subscribe to our newsletter with your voluntary consent by entering your e-mail address. Only this one is obligatory.

After your registration with your e-mail, you will receive an e-mail from us confirming your registration with a confirmation link. If you click on this confirmation link, your e-mail will be included in the newsletter distribution list and saved for the purpose of sending e-mails. If you do not click on the confirmation link within 48 hours, your login data will be blocked and automatically deleted after 30 days.

For the evaluations we link the web beacons with your e-mail address and an individual ID. Links received in the newsletter also contain this ID. The data is collected exclusively under a pseudonym, so the IDs are not linked to your other personal data, a direct personal reference is excluded. With these data we can determine if and when you opened the newsletter and which links were clicked in the newsletter. This serves the purpose of optimising and statistically evaluating our newsletter.
  6. We use the above data to create a user profile in order to identify the reading habits and interests of our users and thus individualise the newsletter.

Use of the Scalable Central Measurement Method (SZM)

  1. Our website uses the measurement method (“SZMnG”) of INFOnline GmbH (https://www.INFOnline.de) to determine statistical parameters about the use of our services. The aim of the usage measurement is to statistically determine the number of visits to our website, the number of website visitors and their surfing behaviour – on the basis of a uniform standard procedure – and thus to obtain market-wide comparable values.
  2. For all digital offers made by members of the Informationsgemeinschaft zur Feststellung der Verbreitung von Werbeträgern e.V. (Information Association for the Determination of the Distribution of Advertising Media), the following applies (IVW – http://www.ivw.eu) or the studies of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Online-Forschung e.V. (Working Group for Online Research). (AGOF – http://www.agof.de), the usage statistics are regularly compiled by AGOF and the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Media-Analyse e.V. (Media Analysis Working Group). (agma – http://www.agma-mmc.de) and published with the performance value “Unique User” as well as by the IVW with the performance values “Page Impression” and “Visits”. These ranges and statistics can be viewed on the respective websites.
  3. The measurement by INFOnline GmbH using the measurement method SZMnG is carried out with legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DS-GVO.
  4. The purpose of processing personal data is to compile statistics and create user categories. The statistics serve to trace and document the use of our offer. The user categories form the basis for an interest-oriented orientation of advertising media or advertising measures. In order to market this website, it is essential to measure its usage in order to ensure comparability with other market participants. Our justified interest results from the economic usability of the knowledge resulting from the statistics and user categories and the market value of our website – also in direct comparison with websites of third parties – which can be determined on the basis of the statistics.
  5. In addition, we have a legitimate interest in making the pseudonymised data available to INFOnline, AGOF and IVW for market research (AGOF, agma) and statistical purposes (INFOnline, IVW). Furthermore, we have a legitimate interest in making the pseudonymised data available to INFOnline for the further development and provision of advertising media in line with our interests.
  6. INFOnline GmbH collects the following data, which according to EU-DS-GVO have a personal reference:

    – IP address: The at least short-term storage of the IP address is technically necessary due to the functioning of the Internet. The IP addresses are shortened by 1 byte before any processing and only processed anonymously. There is no storage or further processing of the unabridged IP addresses.

    – A randomly generated client identifier: For the recognition of computer systems, range processing alternatively uses either a cookie with the identifier “ioam.de”, a “local storage object” or a signature that is created from various automatically transmitted information of your browser. This identifier is unique to a browser as long as the cookie or local storage object is not deleted. A measurement of the data and subsequent assignment to the respective client identifier is therefore also possible if you call up other websites that also use the INFOnline GmbH measurement method (“SZMnG”). The validity of the cookie is limited to a maximum of 1 year.

    – A device identifier when using apps: The range measurement uses unique identifiers of the end device or a signature that is created from various automatically transmitted information of your device to recognize devices. A measurement of the data and subsequent assignment to the respective identifier may also be possible if you call up other applications that also use the INFOnline GmbH measurement method (“SZMnG”). The following unique device identifiers can be transmitted to INFOnline GmbH as a hash: Advertising Identifier, Installation ID, Android ID, Vendor ID.

  7. The INFOnline GmbH measurement method used on this website collects usage data. This is done in order to collect the performance values of page impressions, visits and clients and to form further key figures (e.g. qualified clients). In addition, the measured data are used as follows:

    – A so-called geolocalization, i.e. the assignment of a website call to the location of the call, takes place exclusively on the basis of the anonymous IP address and only up to the geographical level of the federal states / regions. In no case can the geographical information thus obtained be used to draw conclusions about the actual whereabouts of a user.

    – The usage data of a technical client (e.g. a browser on a device) is merged across websites and stored in a database. This information is used for the technical assessment of the socioinformation on age and gender and transferred to AGOF’s service providers for further coverage processing. The AGOF study uses a random sample to technically assess socio-characteristics that can be assigned to the following categories: Age, gender, nationality, occupation, marital status, general household information, household income, place of residence, Internet use, online interests, place of use, user type.

  8. The complete IP address is not stored by INFOnline GmbH. The shortened IP address is stored for a maximum of 60 days. The usage data in conjunction with the unique identifier are stored for a maximum of 6 months.
  9. The IP address and the shortened IP address are not passed on. For the preparation of the AGOF study, data with client identifiers are passed on to the following AGOF service providers:

    – Kantar Deutschland GmbH (https://www.tns-infratest.com/)
    – Ankordata GmbH & Co. KG (http://www.ankordata.de/homepage/) –
    Interrogare GmbH (https://www.interrogare.de/)

  10. If you do not wish to participate in the measurement, you can object by clicking on the following link: https://optout.ioam.de. 
    In order to guarantee an exclusion from the measurement, it is technically necessary to set a cookie. If you should delete the cookies in your browser, it is necessary to repeat the opt-out process under the above link. With apps, you can contradict the measurement by deactivating it under “Settings”.
  11. Further information on data protection in the measurement process can be found on the website of INFOnline GmbH (https://www.infonline.de), which operates the measurement process, the data protection website of AGOF (http://www.agof.de/datenschutz) and the data protection website of IVW(http://www.ivw.eu).
