- Purpose of Data Processing
Data processing is performed with the purpose of maintaining the integrity of our website. In particular, it enables swift error localization and related troubleshooting, while also allowing us to monitor traffic and, if necessary, make adjustments and improvements.
Art 6(1) lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for data processing operations. Where the processing of personal data is concerned, our legitimate interest is to administer the necessary data security measures and maintain our web presence pursuant to Art 6(1) lit. f GDPR.
We assure you that your personal data (with the exception of the IP address) will only be stored for a short time and that it will be impossible to identify a person using this data because the attendant IP address will be deleted or, at the very least, anonymized. Your computer’s IP address will only be stored for the duration of time that you use the website. Following this period of time, it will be deleted or abridged and thereby rendered anonymous. It may be necessary to store data for a longer period of time in cases where hacking or similar attacks are concerned in order to ensure the continued functionality and security of our web presence.
Your data will not be transmitted to third parties.

Purpose of Data Processing
We use the "Google Analytics" and "Hubspot Marketing" tracking tools to collect information about traffic on our website. The following cookies are used in their standard configuration and stored for a period of 30 days: _ga, _gat. These cookies are designed by Google Analytics and they make it possible to monitor traffic on the website and improve the user experience. By means of these cookies, Google collects data about the traffic on our website that can be used to compile reports and improve our website. The service collects anonymous data, including number of visitors, the website from which a user has come (the so-called referrer) and which sub-pages have been visited.
Google Analytics is a web analytics service operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. This service uses so-called “cookies” (see above). As a rule, the information that the cookies generate about your use of this website will be transmitted to a Google server in the US where it will also be stored. By activating IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be abridged by Google and anonymized when accessing our website from a Member State of the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will only be transmitted to a Google server in the US or other third party and subsequently abridged there in specific cases.
Google uses the collected information to evaluate the use of our website and to provide reports on the activity on our website as well as to provide other relevant online services that concern us and how we use our website. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the Google Analytics framework will not be merged with other data collected by Google. The storage of data in cookies used by Google Analytics can be prevented by changing the corresponding settings in your browser; however, if you choose to do so, you will not be able to fully utilize all of the functions on our website. You can object to the collection of data generated by Google Analytics cookies (including your IP address), which is related to the use of this website, as well as the processing and transmission of this data by Google. To do so, the data subject must download and install a browser plugin available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
Once again, our legitimate interest pursuant to Art 6(1) lit. f GDPR regarding online service offerings and, if necessary, receipt/revocation of consent serves as the legal basis for data processing operations.
Revocation of Consent
You can exercise your right to object and revoke your consent at any time without providing a reason by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. In cases where data processing is based solely on your consent and we are not legally obliged to preserve the data, the data in question will be irrevocably deleted following receipt of your revocation.
Your data will not be transmitted to third parties (excluding the circumstances detailed above).
C) YOUTUBE PLUGIN
D) FACEBOOK WEBSITE CUSTOM AUDIENCE
Our website also uses the retargeting technology "Website Custom Audience" developed by Facebook, the social network, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94394, US ("Facebook"). The re-targeting technology allows us to advertise relevant offers and promotions via the Facebook Audience Network that correspond to the interests of our website users who have demonstrated an interest in us and are also Facebook members.
For this purpose, so-called Facebook retargeting pixels are integrated into our website, which enable Facebook to classify visitors to our website under a pseudonym and use this anonymous data as the basis for our ads on Facebook. In doing so, your personal data will neither be obtained from you nor stored and you will therefore remain unidentifiable for us on Facebook. Furthermore, Facebook will not link the information collected by the retargeting pixel with the data saved in your Facebook user profile.
More information on data protection and privacy-related settings are available at https://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=ads and https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy. You can adjust your Facebook Custom Audiences user settings at https://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=ads and http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement.
E) FACEBOOK FORMS

F) DATA PRIVACY NOTICE SOCIAL MEDIA
