Privacy policy

We are very pleased about your interest in our company. The management of TWNTY Digital GmbH attaches great importance to data protection. The TWNTY Digital GmbH website can generally be used without providing any personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to take advantage of special services offered by our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data.

If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned. The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the Basic Data Protection Regulation and in compliance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to TWNTY Digital GmbH.

By means of this data protection declaration, our company wishes to inform the public about the type, scope, and purpose of the personal data collected, used, and processed by us. Furthermore affected. persons are informed about their rights by means of this data protection declaration.

TWNTY Digital GmbH, as the person responsible for processing, has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as completely as possible.

Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally 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 TWNTY Digital GmbH is based on the terms used by the European legislator for directives and regulations when the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO) was issued. Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand both for the public and for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.

We use the following terms, among others, in this Data Protection Declaration:

a) Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter 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, on-line identification, or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

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

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

d) Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with a view to limiting their processing in the future.

e) Profiling is any automated processing of personal data consisting in the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular, to analyse or predict aspects relating to the performance of work, the economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, location or movement of that natural person.

f) 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 the need for 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 person.

g) Controller or data controller shall mean the natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or any 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 national law, provision may be made for the controller or for the specific criteria for his or her designation in accordance with Union or national law.

h) 'processor' shall mean any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

i) 'recipient' shall mean any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation task under Union or national law shall not be considered as recipients.

j) Third-party shall mean 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 controller or the processor, are authorized to process the personal data.

k) Consent means any freely given, informed and unequivocal expression of the data subject's will in the specific case, in the form of a declaration or other unequivocal affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her consent to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

Responsible within the meaning of the basic data protection regulation, other data protection laws applicable in the member states of the European Union and other regulations of a data protection nature is the:

TWNTY Digital GmbH

Phone: 0341 221 79 600
E-Mail: info@twnty.de
Website: www.twnty.de

3. Cookies

The TWNTY Digital GmbH website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored and saved 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 identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters that can be used to assign Internet pages and servers to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the Internet pages and servers visited to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies.

A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified by means of the unique cookie ID. By using cookies, TWNTY Digital GmbH can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the setting of cookies. By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized in the interest of the user.

As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to 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 cart. The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies.

Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, it is possible that not all functions of our website can be fully used.

4. Collection of general data and information

The TWNTY Digital GmbH website collects a range of general data and information each time the website is called up by a data subject or automated system. These general data and information are stored in the log files of the server.

The following can be recorded: (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (the 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 Internet site, (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 avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information TWNTY Digital GmbH will not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required in order to (1) deliver the contents of our website correctly, (2) optimize the contents of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.

This anonymously collected data and information are therefore evaluated by TWNTY Digital GmbH on the one hand statistically and also with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security in our company, in order to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned.

5. Registration on our website

The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the controller by providing personal data. The personal data transmitted to the controller will be determined by the input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored solely for internal use by the data controller and for his or her own purposes.

The controller may arrange for the personal data to be transferred to one or more processors, such as a parcel service provider, which shall also use the personal data exclusively for internal use attributable to the controller. Furthermore, by registering on the controller's website, the IP address assigned to the data subject by the Internet Service Provider (ISP), the date and time of the registration are stored.

The storage of this data is carried out against the background that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services and, if necessary, to enable the clarification of criminal offenses committed. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary to protect the person responsible for the processing. As a matter of principle, this data will not be passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to do so or the passing on of the data serves criminal prosecution.

The registration of the data subject under voluntary disclosure of personal data serves the purpose of the data controller to offer the data subject content or services which, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to modify the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have them completely deleted from the data stock of the data controller.

The data controller shall at any time upon request provide any data subject with information as to which personal data relating to the data subject are stored. Furthermore, the controller shall correct or delete personal data at the request or notification of the data subject, unless this is contrary to any legal obligation to retain data. The entire staff of the data controller is available to the data subject as contact persons in this context.

6. Subscription to our newsletter

On the TWNTY Digital GmbH website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company newsletter. Which personal data is transmitted to the person responsible for processing when ordering the newsletter can be seen from the input mask used for this purpose. TWNTY Digital GmbH informs its customers and business partners at regular intervals by means of a newsletter about company offers.

The newsletter of our company can only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address first registered by a data subject for newsletter dispatch using the double-opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to check whether the owner of the e-mail address, as the data subject, has authorized the 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 this 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 therefore serves to provide legal protection for the person responsible for the processing.

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 necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or for registration, as could 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 canceled 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 revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking this consent, a corresponding link can be found in every 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.

7. Newsletter-Tracking

The newsletters of TWNTY Digital GmbH contain so-called counting pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in e-mails sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This enables a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns.

By means of the embedded pixel-code, TWNTY Digital GmbH can identify whether and when an e-mail was opened by a person concerned and which links contained in the e-mail were called up by the person concerned. Such personal data collected via the embedded tracking pixels in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the data controller in order to optimise the newsletter dispatch and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject.

This personal data is not passed on to third parties. Data subjects are entitled at any time to revoke the separate declaration of consent given in this regard via the double-opt-in procedure. After a revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the data controller. TWNTY Digital GmbH automatically interprets a cancellation of receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.

8. Contact possibility via the website

Due to legal regulations, the TWNTY Digital GmbH website contains information that enables rapid electronic contact with our company and direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for so-called electronic mail (e-mail address).

If a data subject contacts the data controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject is automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted by a data subject to the controller on a voluntary basis are stored for the purposes of processing or for contacting the data subject. Such personal data shall not be disclosed to third parties.

9. Subscription to comments in the blog on the website

Comments submitted in the TWNTY Digital GmbH blog can be subscribed to by third parties. In particular, it is possible for a commentator to subscribe to the comments following his or her comment on a particular blog entry.

If a data subject chooses the option of subscribing to comments, the data controller sends an automatic confirmation e-mail in order to check in a double opt-in procedure whether the owner of the e-mail address provided has actually chosen this option. The option to subscribe to comments can be canceled at any time.

10. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

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

If the purpose of storage ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directives and Regulations Giver or any other competent legislator expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with the statutory provisions.

11. Rights of the data subject

a) Right to obtain confirmation

Every data subject has the right, granted by the European legislator, to obtain from the controller confirmation as to whether personal data relating to him or she are being processed. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of confirmation, he or she may at any time contact any employee of the controller.

b) Right of access

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right to obtain from the controller, at any time and free of charge, information on personal data relating to him or her which are stored and a copy thereof. The European Data Protection Supervisor has also granted the data subject access to the following information: the purposes of the 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 organisations, if possible, the envisaged duration for which the personal data will be kept or, if that is not possible, the criteria for determining that duration the existence of a right of rectification or erasure of the personal data relating to him or her or of a restriction on processing by the controller or a right of objection 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 all available information on the origin of the data the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, in accordance with Article 22(1) and (4) of the DPA and, at least in these cases, meaningful information on the logic involved and the scope and intended impact of such processing on the data subject. If this is the case, the data subject shall also have the right to obtain information on the appropriate safeguards relating to the transfer. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of access, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.

c) Right of rectification

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right to obtain the rectification without delay of inaccurate personal data relating to him/her, as granted by the European legislator. The data subject shall also have the right to obtain the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary declaration, having regard to the purposes of the processing.

d) Right to erasure (right to be forgotten)

Any person affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right to obtain from the controller the immediate erasure of personal data relating to him or her for any of the following reasons, unless the processing is necessary: the personal data were collected for purposes for which they are no longer necessary or they were processed in any other way. The data subject withdraws the consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the DPA or Article 9(2)(a) of the DPA and there is no other legal basis for the processing. The data subject lodges an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) DPA and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or the data subject lodges an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (2) DPA. The personal data were processed unlawfully. The deletion of personal data is necessary to comply with a legal obligation under Union or national law to which the controller is subject. The personal data were collected in relation to information society services offered, in accordance with Article 8(1) of the DS-GVO. If any of the above reasons apply and a data subject wishes to request the deletion of personal data stored by TWNTY Digital GmbH, he/she may contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee of TWNTY Digital GmbH will ensure that the request for deletion is complied with immediately. If the personal data has been made public by TWNTY Digital GmbH and our company as the responsible party is obliged to delete the personal data in accordance with Art. 17 Para. 1 DS-GVO, TWNTY Digital GmbH will take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform other data controllers who process the published personal data that the data subject has requested that these other data controllers delete all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data, unless the processing is necessary. The employee of TWNTY Digital GmbH will take the necessary steps in each individual case.

e) Right to restrict processing

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation Giver, to demand that the data controller restrict the processing if one of the following conditions is met: the accuracy of the personal data is disputed by the data subject, for a period of time that allows the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data. The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses to have the personal data deleted and instead requests 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 them in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. The data subject has lodged an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) of the DPA and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh those of the data subject. If one of the above-mentioned conditions is met and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by TWNTY Digital GmbH, he or she may contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee of TWNTY Digital GmbH will arrange for the restriction of the processing.

f) Right to data transferability

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to receive the personal data concerning him/her which has been made available to a controller by the data subject in a structured, common and machine-readable format. He or she also has the right to have this data communicated to another controller without hindrance by the controller to whom the personal data has been made available, provided that the processing is based on the consent pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 letter a DPA or Article 9 paragraph 2 letter a DPA or on a contract pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 letter b DPA and that the processing is carried out by means of automated procedures 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 their right to data transfer pursuant to Art. 20 Para. 1 DPA, the data subject has the right to request that personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other persons. In order to assert the right to data transferability, the data subject may at any time contact an employee of TWNTY Digital GmbH.

g) Right of objection

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European legislator, to object at any time, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her carried out pursuant to Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DPA. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions. In the event of an objection, TWNTY Digital GmbH will no longer process the personal data unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing that are worthy of protection and outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. If TWNTY Digital GmbH processes personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such marketing. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct mail. If the data subject objects to TWNTY Digital GmbH processing for the purposes of direct marketing, TWNTY Digital GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes. In addition, the data subject has the right to object, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her that is carried out at TWNTY Digital GmbH for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89 Paragraph 1 DS-GVO, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest. In order to exercise the right of objection, the data subject may directly contact any employee of TWNTY Digital GmbH or any other employee. The data subject is also free to exercise his/her right of objection in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures involving technical specifications.

h) Automated decisions in individual cases, including profiling

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or significantly affects him or her in a similar way, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is authorised by Union or national legislation to which the controller is subject and such legislation provides for adequate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) is made with the explicit consent of the data subject. Where the decision is (1) necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller or (2) with the explicit consent of the data subject, TWNTY Digital GmbH shall take reasonable steps to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person from the controller, to put forward its point of view and to challenge the decision. If the data subject wishes to exercise rights relating to automated decisions, he or she may at any time consult a member of the staff of the controller.

i) Right to revoke a consent under data protection law

Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation Giver to revoke a consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the data subject wishes to exercise his or her right to withdraw consent, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.

j) Data protection in applications and in the application procedure

The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure.

The processing may also be carried out by electronic means. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits relevant application documents to the controller electronically, for example by e-mail or via a web form on the website. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data is stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in accordance with the statutory provisions.

If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents are automatically deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller conflict with the deletion. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, an obligation to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz, AGG).

k) data protection regulations on the use and application of Facebook

The data controller has integrated components of the company Facebook on this website. Facebook is a 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 exchanging opinions and experiences or it can enable 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 Canada 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 integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Facebook component to download a display of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook.

A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins is available at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=de_DE.

As part of this technical process, Facebook is informed on which specific page of our website is visited by the person concerned. If the person concerned is logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes 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 account of the person concerned.

If the person concerned clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the "Like" button, or if the person concerned makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the person concerned and stores this personal data. Facebook receives information via the Facebook component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the same time when he or she accesses our website; this occurs regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not.

If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Facebook, 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 is available at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing, and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains which settings Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the person concerned.

In addition, various applications are available that make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Such applications can be used by the data subject to suppress data transfer to Facebook.

l) data protection regulations on the use of Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)

The data controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on this website.

Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data on which website a person concerned came to a website from (so-called referrers), which sub-pages of the website were accessed, or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and to analyse the cost-benefit of internet advertising.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. The data controller uses the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the data subject's Internet connection is shortened and made anonymous by Google if our Internet pages are accessed from a member state of the European Union or from another state that is a 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 able to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, is called up, 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 procedure, Google receives knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission settlements. By means of the cookie, personal information such as the access time, the place from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned is stored.

Each time our website is visited, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.

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 Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. Furthermore, 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 and prevent the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. To do this, the person concerned must download and install a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google as a contradiction.

If the data subject's information technology system is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later date, the data subject must reinstall the Browser Add-On in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the person concerned or another person within 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/.

12. Privacy policy on the deployment and use 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 allows an advertiser to set pre-defined keywords that will display an ad in Google's search engine results only when the user uses the search engine to retrieve a keyword-related search result. In the Google advertising network, the ads are distributed to topic-relevant web pages by means of an automatic algorithm and in accordance with the previously defined keywords.

The operating company of the Google AdWords services is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our website by displaying advertisements relevant to our interests on the websites of third-party companies and in the search engine results of the Google search engine, and to display third-party advertisements on our website. If a person concerned reaches our website via a Google advertisement, a so-called conversion cookie is stored on the information technology system of the person concerned by Google.

What cookies are has already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and does not serve to identify the data subject. If the cookie has not expired, the conversion cookie is used to determine whether certain sub-pages, such as the shopping cart from an online shop system, have been accessed on our website. The conversion cookie enables us and Google to track whether a person who has reached our website via 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 were referred to us via AdWords ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive any 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 a person visits our website, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America.
