DATA PROTECTION




Introduction to the privacy policy: "THE FORT WORTH PRESS"

Last update: 01 January 2024

This privacy policy gives you an overview of how your data is processed. It applies to all websites, apps and other services and benefits provided by "THE FORT WORTH PRESS".

"THE FORT WORTH PRESS"
represented by: Durathor LLC
420 Throckmorton Street
Fort Worth, 76102 (TEXAS)

- legally represented by:
Durathor LLC
9421 Fontainebleau Blvd
Miami, 33178
/ United States of America
Mail: [email protected]
Commercial register: https://s3.eu-central-1.amazonaws.com/image.fwp/uploads/Court_Register_DOCUMENT_L12000105639.pdf

 Data protection originally referred to the protection of personal data from misuse. The term was equated with protection of data, protection against data or protection against "data processing". In the English-speaking world, the terms "privacy" (protection of privacy) and "data privacy" (data protection in the narrower sense) are used. In the European legal area, the term "data protection" is used in legislation.

On all websites of Durathor LLC, 9421 Fontainebleau Blvd, Miami, 33178 / United States of America, Mail: [email protected], the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union (http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_IP-18-386_de.htm), which standardises the rules for the processing of personal data by private companies and public bodies throughout the EU, will apply from 25 May 2018. The General Data Protection Regulation is part of the EU data protection reform presented by the European Commission on 25 January 2012. Any reader can find information on the GDPR here = https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datenschutz-Grundverordnung

Today, the purpose of data protection is to protect individuals from having their right to informational self-determination impaired by the handling of their personal data. Data protection stands for the idea that everyone can decide for themselves who, when, how, where and which of their personal data should be accessible. Data protection aims to prevent the so-called transparent individual. The use of the websites ofDurathor LLC, 9421 Fontainebleau Blvd, Miami, 33178 / United States of America, Mail: [email protected], regardless of the domain extension, whether com, net, info, eu, biz or whatever, is generally possible without providing personal data. Insofar as the pages of Durathor LLC, 9421 Fontainebleau Blvd, Miami, 33178 / United States of America, Mail: [email protected] personal data (such as name, address or e-mail addresses) are collected, this is always done, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis.

This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent. We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) may be subject to security vulnerabilities. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible. We hereby expressly prohibit the use of contact data published within the scope of the imprint obligation by third parties for sending unsolicited advertising and information material. The operators of the website expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam e-mails. 

The data protection regulations also apply to public bodies, organs of the administration of justice, corporations, institutions and foundations under public law, associations of public bodies and certain companies, societies or organisations controlled by them. The content and works created by the site operators on these pages are subject to copyright. Harmonised copyright law in the European Union is closely linked to the right to free movement of goods (freedom of movement of goods) and services (freedom to provide services), the fundamental freedoms of the Community Treaties. The European Union's main legislative power in the area of copyright and industrial property rights is also derived from this, as such rights can constitute an unacceptable hindrance and/or distortion of competition in the free EU internal market.

Reproduction, editing, distribution and any kind of utilisation outside the limits of copyright law require the written consent of the respective author or creator. Downloads and copies of this site are only permitted for private, non-commercial use. Insofar as the content on this site was not created by the operator, the copyrights of third parties are respected. In particular, third-party content is labelled as such. Should you nevertheless become aware of a copyright infringement, please inform us accordingly. If we become aware of any infringements, we will remove such content immediately.

  1. Privacy policy of "THE FORT WORTH PRESS":
    Durathor LLC, 9421 Fontainebleau Blvd, Miami, 33178 / United States of America, Mail: [email protected], takes data protection seriously and always endeavours to collect and use all personal data in accordance with the applicable data protection law.

"THE FORT WORTH PRESS" would like to use this data protection declaration to explain to you which data is absolutely necessary and how you could gain additional benefits by providing further, voluntary data. Your data will only be collected and stored if you have given us your consent to do so. We will be happy to inform you of any changes to the data protection provisions in writing on request. If you do not agree with the latest version, you have the option of withdrawing your consent within two weeks. During this time, the changes will have no effect on you.

  1. Personal data that we need to identify you:
     If you register for a possible future competition, the "THE FORT WORTH PRESS" community, the receipt of the e-mail newsletter or for the purchase of paid services, we will ask you for some personal details. The data that "THE FORT WORTH PRESS" collects when you access the web address will be requested.
  2. Use of your necessary data:
     Personal data is only collected if you provide this information voluntarily, for example as part of an enquiry or registration. Durathor LLC, 9421 Fontainebleau Blvd, Miami, 33178 / United States of America, Mail: [email protected], records your consent to the collection and storage of data.

"THE FORT WORTH PRESS" only sends online publications to those who have requested the information. We are unable to check whether the addressee has made the enquiry personally or whether the enquiry has been made by a third party. We always endeavour to keep the e-mail address list as up-to-date as technically possible in order to exclude incorrect or no longer valid requests as quickly as possible.

  1. Extended data collection, storage and processing:
    If you give Durathor LLC, 9421 Fontainebleau Blvd, Miami, 33178 / United States of America, Mail: [email protected] to collect, use and process further voluntary data for individual information and support, "THE FORT WORTH PRESS" will store your personal data beyond the respective current occasion and use your data for these purposes.

This consent is also logged by Durathor LLC, 9421 Fontainebleau Blvd, Miami, 33178 / United States of America, Mail: [email protected]. Some services of "THE FORT WORTH PRESS" are offered in co-operation with partner companies.

In this way, "THE FORT WORTH PRESS" is also committed internationally to the protection of personal data that is passed on to countries in which there is no data protection law or whose laws are less strict.

  1. Certification and, if necessary, creation of online invoices
    According to legal regulations, the authenticity of the origin and the integrity of the content of an invoice transmitted electronically must be guaranteed. In addition, the "Principles of Data Access and Verifiability of Digital Documents" (GDPdU) stipulate that the qualified electronic signature must be verified with regard to the integrity of the data and the signature authorisation before further processing of an electronic invoice. The result of this check must be documented. The verification of the electronic signature associated with the electronic invoice was carried out at the time specified in the verification report with the result shown in the report.

     Durathor LLC, 9421 Fontainebleau Blvd, Miami, 33178 / United States of America, Mail: [email protected], assumes no responsibility for the authenticity of this Verification Report after transmission by electronic media, storage and printing. The time information contained in the Verification Report refers to the GMT time zone and may therefore differ from the respective legally valid local time.
  2. Further information on data protection:
    Please remember that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online (e.g. in chat areas, by e-mail, in forums), this information can be collected and used by others. You could therefore receive unsolicited messages from others if you send personal information online in areas with public access.

We expressly compile the contents of these Internet pages with the greatest possible care and ensure that they are regularly updated.
However, the information is only intended to provide non-binding general information and is no substitute for detailed individual advice on the products advertised on the pages of "THE FORT WORTH PRESS".

"THE FORT WORTH PRESS" assumes no liability for the topicality, correctness and completeness of the information on these pages or for trouble-free access at all times.

  1. Finally, an explanation of Web 2.0
    After the big Internet bubble burst around the end of 2001, the Internet was thought to be an overrated hype. Investors and companies in particular retreated. No wonder, since they lost a lot of money in the process. In fact, it is still virtually impossible - at least in Germany - to obtain capital to set up an Internet-based company.

  4. General information
    The burst Internet bubble separated the wheat from the chaff and many Internet companies are now profitable or have a share value that is at or even above the level of the beginning of 2001.

Ultimately, it's all about one thing: it's no longer the programmes on the PC that count, the Internet itself will become the application. The days of local data storage are coming to an end. Mobility is the keyword, the content is on the net. Anyone who wants to has full access to the web via their mobile phone. You can read the news, download music or watch videos. It no longer matters where you are, all you need is access to the Internet. Whether by cable or wireless (WLAN or UMTS), data and content are always available, wherever you are.

"Do Not Track" requests
This website/s does not support "Do Not Track" requests by web browsers. Users can find information on whether integrated third-party services support the Do Not Track protocol in the privacy policy of the respective service.

Social bookmarking, social web and social software
One of the new and certainly most interesting Internet applications is what could be summarised as social bookmarking, social web or social software. This involves the networking of content and people. Typical examples of this are the so-called wikis, such as the online encyclopaedia Wikipedia, image sharing services such as Flickr or the social bookmarking platform del.icio.us. What all three have in common is that they are more than just online repositories for content.

Web 2.0 and 3.0 - Exciting and highly dangerous at the same time
Nothing illustrates the beauty and the danger of web 2.0 as succinctly as the EPIC 2015 video from the Museum of Media History. See also HERE - It must also be emphasised at this point that intelligence services, investigative bodies and other interested parties are increasingly using Web 2.0 for their own purposes - so users should always be warned that the Internet has long since ceased to be a legal vacuum and that the transparent citizen is not an invention.

3. cookies
The Internet pages of Durathor LLC, 9421 Fontainebleau Blvd, Miami, 33178 / United States of America, Mail: [email protected] use cookies. Cookies are text files that are placed and stored on a computer system via an Internet browser.

Numerous websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier for the cookie. It consists of a character string that allows websites and servers to be assigned to the specific internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the websites and servers visited to distinguish the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific internet browser can be recognised and identified via the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, Durathor LLC, 9421 Fontainebleau Blvd, Miami, 33178 / United States of America, Mail: [email protected], can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

Cookies can be used to optimise the information and offers on our website for the benefit of the user. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognise 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 re-enter their access data each time they visit the website because this is taken over by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie for a shopping basket in an online shop. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping basket via a cookie.

The data subject 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 Internet browser or other software programmes. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.

When using these general data and information, Durathor LLC, 9421 Fontainebleau Blvd, Miami, 33178 / United States of America, Mail: [email protected], does not draw any conclusions about the data subject.

Rather, this information is required in order to:
(1) deliver the content of our website correctly
(2) optimise the content 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.

5. registration on our website
The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the controller by providing personal data. Which personal data is transmitted to the controller is determined by the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject is collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller and for the controller's own purposes. The controller may arrange for the data to be passed on to one or more processors, such as a parcel service provider, who will also use the personal data exclusively for internal use attributable to the controller.

By registering on the controller's website, the IP address assigned by the data subject's Internet service provider (ISP), the date and time of registration are also stored. This data is stored against the background that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services and, if necessary, to enable criminal offences to be investigated. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary to safeguard the controller. This data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to pass it on or the passing on serves the purpose of criminal prosecution.

The registration of the data subject with voluntary provision of personal data serves the 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 change the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have it completely deleted from the controller's database.

The controller shall provide any data subject at any time upon request with information about which personal data relating to the data subject is stored.

Data protection provisions about the application and use of Adobe Analytics (Omniture) / Adobe Marketing Cloud
On this website, the controller has integrated components of the enterprise Adobe. Adobe Analytics (Omniture) or the Adobe Marketing Cloud (hereinafter referred to as "Omniture") is a tool that enables more efficient online marketing and web analytics. Omniture is part of the Adobe Marketing Cloud. The Adobe Marketing Cloud enables real-time analyses of visitor flows on websites. The real-time analyses include project reports and allow ad-hoc analyses of website visitors. Customer interactions are presented in a way that provides the controller with a better overview of the online activities of the users of this website by displaying the data in simple and interactive dashboards and converting them into reports. This enables the data controller to receive information in real time and to recognise any problems more quickly. The operating company of these services is Adobe Systems Software Ireland Limited, 4-6 Riverwalk, Citywest Business Campus, Dublin 24, Republic of Ireland.

Omniture places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject (cookies have already been explained in advance; this can be read above). The controller ensures through a server setting that the tracking data records transmitted to the Adobe data centre are anonymised before geolocalisation. Anonymisation is implemented by replacing the last part of the IP address.

The controller has made settings on the server side that anonymise the IP address of the data subject independently of each other before processing for geolocalisation and reach measurement. Adobe will use the data and information obtained via our website on behalf of the controller to evaluate the user behaviour of the data subject. Adobe will also use the data to compile reports on user activity on our behalf and to provide other services for our company in connection with the use of our website. The IP address of the data subject is not merged with other personal data by Adobe.

The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Omniture from placing a cookie on the data subject's IT system. In addition, cookies already set by Omniture can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programmes.

Furthermore, the data subject has the option of objecting to and preventing the collection of data generated by the Adobe cookie relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Adobe. To do this, the data subject 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 data subject. If the cookies on the data subject's system are deleted after an objection, the data subject must call up the link again and set a new opt-out cookie. With the setting of the opt-out cookie, however, there is the possibility that the Internet pages of the controller are no longer fully usable for the data subject. The applicable data protection provisions of Adobe may be accessed under http://www.adobe.com/de/privacy.html.

As part of this technical process, econda gains knowledge of data that is subsequently used to create pseudonymised user profiles.

The user profiles obtained in this way are used to analyse the behaviour of the data subject who has accessed the controller's website and are evaluated with the aim of improving and optimising the website. The data collected via the econda component will not be used to identify the data subject without the prior separate and explicit consent of the data subject. This data is not merged with personal data or with other data containing the same pseudonym.

The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our 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 used would also prevent econda from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already set by econda can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programmes.

Furthermore, the data subject has the option of objecting to and preventing the collection of data generated by the econda cookie and relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by econda. To do this, the data subject must press the send button under the link http://www.econda.de/econda/unternehmen/datenschutz/widerspruchscookie/, which sets the opt-out cookie.

14. data protection provisions about the application and use of Facebook
On this website, the controller has integrated components of the enterprise Facebook. Facebook is a social network.

A social network is a social meeting place operated on the Internet, an online community that generally 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 enable the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Facebook enables social network users 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. If a data subject lives outside the USA or Canada, the controller for the processing of personal data is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to download a display of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook through the Facebook component. A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be accessed at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=de_DE. During the course of this technical procedure, Facebook is made aware of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook, Facebook recognises which specific sub-page of our website the data subject is visiting each time the data subject accesses 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 data subject.

17. data protection provisions about the application and use of functions of Verwertungsgesellschaft WORT (VG WORT)
The controller has integrated tracking pixels on this website. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in Internet pages to enable log file recording and log file analysis, whereby a statistical evaluation can be carried out. The integrated tracking pixels serve the Scalable Central Measurement Method (SZM) of the collecting society WORT (VG-Wort). The Scalable Central Measurement Method is operated by INFOnline GmbH, Forum Bonn Nord, Brühler Str. 9, 53119 Bonn. The Scalable Central Measurement Method is used to determine statistical key figures with which the copy probability of texts is calculated. The embedded tracking pixel enables the collecting society WORT to recognise whether, when and by how many users (including the data subject) our website was opened and what content was accessed.

The data obtained using the Scalable Central Measurement Method is collected anonymously. In order to record the access figures for the purpose of recognising the users of a website, either a so-called session cookie is set, i.e. a signature is created which is made up of various automatically transmitted information, or alternative methods are used. The IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject is only collected and processed in anonymised form. The data subject is not identified at any time.

The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent INFOnline from placing a cookie on the data subject's information technology system. In addition, cookies already set by INFOnline can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programmes.

Furthermore, the data subject has the option of objecting to and preventing the collection of data generated by INFOnline relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by INFOnline. To do this, the data subject must press the opt-out button under the link http://optout.ioam.de, which sets an opt-out cookie.

With the setting of the opt-out cookie, however, there is the possibility that the Internet pages of the controller are no longer fully usable for the data subject. The applicable data protection provisions of INFOnline may be accessed under https://www.infonline.de/datenschutz/.

18. data protection provisions about the application and use of Google AdSense
The controller has integrated Google AdSense on this website. Google AdSense is an online service that enables advertising to be placed on third-party websites. Google AdSense is based on an algorithm that selects the adverts displayed on third-party sites to match the content of the respective third-party site. Google AdSense allows interest-based targeting of Internet users, which is realised by generating individual user profiles.

The operating company of the Google AdSense component is Alphabet Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. The purpose of the Google AdSense component is the integration of adverts on our website. Google AdSense places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Alphabet Inc. is enabled to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the controller and on which a Google AdSense component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Google AdSense component to transmit data to Alphabet Inc. for the purpose of online advertising and billing of commissions. During the course of this technical procedure, Alphabet Inc. gains knowledge of personal information, 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 our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Alphabet Inc. from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Alphabet Inc. can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programmes.

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 allows statistical evaluation to be carried out. Using the embedded tracking pixel, Alphabet Inc. can recognise whether and when a website was opened by a data subject and which links were clicked on by the data subject. Tracking pixels are used, among other things, to analyse the flow of visitors to a website.

Through Google AdSense, personal data and information, which also includes the IP address and is necessary for the collection and billing of the displayed adverts, is transferred to Alphabet Inc. in the United States of America. This personal data is stored and processed in the United States of America. Alphabet Inc. may pass on this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties. Google AdSense is explained in more detail at this link https://www.google.de/intl/de/adsense/start/.

19. data protection provisions about the application and use of Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)
On this website, the controller has integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the anonymizer function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection, gathering and evaluation of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data about the website from which a data subject came to a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. Web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and for the cost-benefit analysis 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._anonymiseIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. This addition is used by Google to shorten and anonymise the IP address of the data subject's Internet connection if our website is accessed from a member 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 analyse the use of our website, to compile online reports for us that show the activities on our website, and to provide other services in connection with the use of our website.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the data subject's IT system. 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 accessed, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. During the course of this technical procedure, Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently create commission settlements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which access was made and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject. Each time our website is visited, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, 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 data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the data subject's IT system. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programmes.

Furthermore, the data subject has the option of objecting to and preventing the collection of data generated by Google Analytics relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. To do this, the data subject must download and install a browser add-on from 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 recognised by Google as an objection.

If the data subject's IT 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 data subject or another person who is attributable to their sphere of control, it is possible to reinstall or reactivate the browser add-on. Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and under 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/.

20. data protection provisions about the application and use of Google Remarketing
The controller has integrated Google Remarketing services on this website. Google Remarketing is a function of Google AdWords that enables a company to display adverts to Internet users who have previously visited the company's website. The integration of Google Remarketing therefore allows a company to create user-related adverts and consequently to display adverts relevant to the interests of the Internet user. The operating company of the Google Remarketing services is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of Google Remarketing is to display adverts relevant to your interests. Google Remarketing enables us to display adverts via the Google advertising network or on other websites that are tailored to the individual needs and interests of internet users.

Google Remarketing places a cookie on the data subject's IT system. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is able to recognise the visitor to our website when they subsequently visit websites that are also members of the Google advertising network.
 Each time a website on which the Google Remarketing service has been integrated is accessed, the data subject's internet browser automatically identifies itself to Google. As part of this technical process, Google receives knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address or the surfing behaviour of the user, which Google uses, among other things, to display interest-relevant advertising.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the websites visited by the data subject. Each time our website is visited, personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is therefore 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 data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the data subject's IT system. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programmes.

Furthermore, the data subject has the option of objecting to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, the data subject must call up the link www.google.de/settings/ads from each of the Internet browsers they use and make the desired settings there. Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

21. data protection provisions about the application and use of Google+
On this website, the controller has integrated the Google+ button as a component. Google+ is a so-called social network. A social network is a social meeting place operated on the Internet, an online community that generally 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 enable the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Google+ enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friend requests, among other things.

The operating company of Google+ is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google+ button has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Google+ button to download a representation of the corresponding Google+ button from Google. As part of this technical process, Google receives information about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject. More detailed information about Google+ is available at https://developers.google.com/+/.

If the data subject is logged in to Google+ at the same time, Google recognises which specific sub-page of our website the data subject is visiting each time the data subject accesses our website and for the entire duration of their stay on our website. This information is collected by the Google+ button and assigned by Google to the respective Google+ account of the data subject.

If the data subject clicks on one of the Google+ buttons integrated on our website and thereby makes a Google+1 recommendation, Google assigns this information to the personal Google+ user account of the data subject and stores this personal data. Google stores the data subject's Google+1 recommendation and makes it publicly available in accordance with the terms and conditions accepted by the data subject in this regard. A Google+1 recommendation made by the data subject on this website is subsequently stored and processed together with other personal data, such as the name of the Google+1 account used by the data subject and the photo stored in this account in other Google services, for example the search engine results of the Google search engine, the Google account of the data subject or in other places, for example on websites or in connection with advertisements. Google is also able to link the visit to this website with other personal data stored by Google. Google also records this personal information for the purpose of improving or optimising the various Google services.

Google always receives information via the Google+ button that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged in to Google+ at the same time as accessing our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Google+ button or not. If the data subject does not want personal data to be transmitted to Google, they can prevent such transmission by logging out of their Google+ account before accessing our website.

Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/. Further information from Google about the Google+1 button can be found at https://developers.google.com/+/web/buttons-policy.

22. data protection provisions about the application and use of Google AdWords
The controller has integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an internet advertising service that allows advertisers to place adverts in Google's search engine results as well as in the Google advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to specify certain keywords in advance, which are used to display an advert in Google's search engine results only when the user uses the search engine to retrieve a keyword-relevant search result. In the Google advertising network, the adverts are distributed to relevant websites using an automatic algorithm and taking into account 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 interest-relevant adverts on the websites of third-party companies and in the search engine results of the Google search engine and by displaying third-party adverts on our website. If a data subject reaches our website via a Google advert, a so-called conversion cookie is stored on the data subject's IT system by Google. What cookies are has already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and is not used to identify the data subject. If the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie is used to track whether certain sub-pages, such as the shopping basket from an online shop system, have been accessed on our website. The conversion cookie enables both us and Google to track whether a data subject who has reached our website via an AdWords ad has generated sales, i.e. completed or cancelled a purchase.

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to compile 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 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 data subject.

The conversion cookie is used to store personal information, such as the websites visited by the data subject. Each time our website is visited, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, 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 data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from placing a conversion cookie on the data subject's IT system. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programmes.

Furthermore, the data subject has the option of objecting to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, the data subject must call up the link www.google.de/settings/ads from each of the Internet browsers they use and make the desired settings there. Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

Web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising. The software is operated on the server of the controller, and the data protection-sensitive log files are stored exclusively on this server. The purpose of the Matomo component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. The data controller uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to analyse the use of this website in order to compile online reports that show the activities on our website.

Matomo places a cookie on the data subject's IT system. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, we are able to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, the Internet browser on the data subject's IT system is automatically prompted by the Matomo component to transmit data to our server for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, we obtain knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which serves us, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks.

Cookies are used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which access was made and the frequency of visits to our website. Each time our website is visited, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to our server. This personal data is stored by us. We do not pass this personal data on to third parties.

The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Matomo from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Matomo can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programmes.

Furthermore, the data subject has the option of objecting to and preventing the collection of data generated by Matomo relating to the use of this website. To do this, the data subject must set "Do Not Track" in their browser. However, if the opt-out cookie is set, it is possible that the data subject will no longer be able to use the controller's website to its full extent. Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Matomo may be retrieved under https://matomo.org/privacy/.

29. data protection provisions about the application and use of SlideShare
The controller has integrated SlideShare components on this website. LinkedIn SlideShare is a file hosting service that enables the sharing and archiving of presentations and other documents such as PDF files, videos and webinars. The file hosting service allows users to upload media content in all common formats, whereby the documents can either be made publicly accessible or marked as private. The operating company of SlideShare is LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. LinkedIn Ireland, Privacy Policy Issues, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, is responsible for data protection matters outside the USA.

LinkedIn SlideShare provides so-called embed codes for the media content stored there (presentations, PDF files, videos, photos, etc.). Embed codes are programme codes that are embedded in websites with the aim of displaying external content on your own website. Embed codes make it possible to display content on your own website without storing it on your own server and possibly infringing the reproduction rights of the respective author of the content. A further advantage of using an embed code is that the respective operator of a website does not use their own storage space and their own server is relieved as a result. An embed code can be integrated at any point on another website so that external content can also be inserted within your own text. The purpose of using LinkedIn SlideShare is to reduce the load on our server and to avoid copyright infringements when using third-party content at the same time.

Each time you visit our website, which is equipped with a SlideShare component (embed codes), this component causes the browser you are using to download the corresponding embedded data from SlideShare. As part of this technical process, LinkedIn receives information about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.

If the data subject is logged in to SlideShare at the same time, SlideShare recognises which specific sub-page the data subject is visiting each time the data subject accesses our website and for the entire duration of their stay on our website. This information is collected by SlideShare and assigned by LinkedIn to the respective SlideShare account of the data subject.

LinkedIn always receives information via the SlideShare component that the person concerned has visited our website if the person concerned is logged in to SlideShare at the same time as accessing our website; this takes place regardless of whether the person concerned clicks on the integrated media data or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to LinkedIn, they can prevent the transmission by logging out of their SlideShare account before accessing our website. LinkedIn also uses partners such as Quantcast, Google Analytics, BlueKai, DoubleClick, Nielsen, Comscore, Eloqua and Lotame, which can set cookies. Such cookies can be rejected at https://www.linkedin.com/legal/cookie-policy The applicable data protection provisions of LinkedIn may be retrieved under https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy

51. legal basis for processing
Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company as the 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 data subject is party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the performance 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 requires the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR.

 In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and their name, age, health insurance details or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. The processing would then be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and 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 legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

52. legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or by a third party
Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favour of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

53. duration for which the personal data is stored The
criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. Once this period has expired, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of a contract.

54. legal or contractual provisions for 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-provision
We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded for a data subject to provide us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us.

 For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact 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.

55. existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automated decision-making or profiling.
