The processing of your data in the context of this website

Why Do We Retain Personal Data?
We retain Personal Data to fulfill our legal or regulatory obligations and for our business purposes. We may retain your Personal Data for longer periods of time, otherwise required by law, if it is in our legitimate business interest and it is not prohibited by law.

We will continue to use and disclose such Personal Data in accordance with this Privacy Statement.
Legal basis for processing personal information
Our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.
However, we will normally collect personal information from you only (a) where we need the personal information to perform a contract with you; (b) where the processing is in our legitimate interest and not overridden by your rights; or (c) where we have your consent to do so. We have a legitimate interest in operating our Services and communicating with you as necessary to provide these Services, for example, when responding to your inquiry, improving our platform, undertaking marketing, or for the purposes of detecting or preventing illegal activities.

External Technical Support Services
Technical support services are needed because website operators cannot program everything themselves these days. Thus external services are used to enrich websites or even make them possible.
The lawfulness of processing (i.e. the integration of the following technical support services) results from Art. 6, par. 1, lit. (f) GDPR and the legitimate interest pursued by the website operator (controller) to provide a rich, appealing, functional and secure web site.
The controller (website operator) has entered into some partnerships that enable earning an income by placing advertising on the pages of this website. The following affiliate partners are integrating program codes into the pages of this website so that your web browser also communicates directly with affiliates – regardless of whether you click on an ad link.
The lawfulness of the processing (i.e. the involvement of advertising partners) results from Art. 6, par. 1 lit. (f) GDPR and the legitimate interest of the website operator (controller) to refinance the costs of this website and to earn an income from his work. Without the income from advertising, this website could not be made available to the general public, free of charge.
On this website, the controller has integrated Google AdSense. Google AdSense is an online service which allows the placement of advertisement on third party sites. Google AdSense is based on an algorithm that selects advertisements displayed on third party sites to match with the content of the respective third party site.
The operating company of Google AdSense component is:
1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The purpose of Google AdSense component is the integration of advertisements on this website. Google AdSense places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Alphabet Inc. is enabled to analyze the use of this website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google AdSense component is integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject, will automatically submit data through the Google AdSense component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Alphabet Inc. During the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise Alphabet Inc. gains knowledge of Personal Data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Alphabet Inc., inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently create commission settlements.
The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through this website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser would also prevent Alphabet Inc. from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. Additionally, cookies already in use by Alphabet Inc. may be deleted at any time via the web browser.
Furthermore, Google AdSense also uses so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in web pages to enable a log file recording and log file analysis through which a statistical analysis may be performed. Based on the embedded tracking pixels, Alphabet Inc. is able to determine if and when a website was opened by a data subject, and which links were clicked on by the data subject. Tracking pixels serves, inter alia, to analyze the flow of visitors on a website.
Through Google AdSense, personal data and information – this also includes the IP address, and is necessary for the collection and accounting of the displayed advertisements — is transmitted to Alphabet Inc. in the United States of America. These personal data will be stored and processed in the United States of America. The Alphabet Inc. may disclose the collected personal data through this technical procedure to third parties.
Google AdSense is also able to perform an interest-based targeting of the Internet user (personalized advertising, profiling), which is implemented by generating individual user profiles. In its AdSense settings, the controller has turned off personalized advertising for European Economic Area (EEA) users for this website. As a data subject, you will not receive personalized advertising within this website, but advertisement based on the content of this website.
