The website contains services that optimize user-friendliness and measure the reach of the website. Your access data (see section 2) is recorded and with the help of cookies (see section 3), the usage behavior is evaluated. In principle, personal identification is not required for web tracking, so that when your access data is entered, the stored IP address is either not used or is used exclusively shortened (shortened by the last octet) and pseudonymous user profiles are created. In principle, these are not merged with other data and you have the possibility of withdrawal at any time. The creation of personal user profiles takes place exclusively in exceptional cases and provided that you have given your consent.
The legal basis for collecting and analyzing pseudonym usage profiles follows from Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR / Section 15(3) German Telemedia Act (TMG). We have a legitimate interest in optimizing the user-friendliness of our website and performing marketing reach measurements.
The data collected and evaluated when using the web tracking services is usually stored until you object to their use.
4.8 EXTERNAL SERVICES AND CONTENT ON OUR WEBSITE
We integrate external services and content on our website. If you use one of these services or you are shown the content of third parties, communication data is exchanged between you and the provider of that service or content for technical purposes.
That provider may use your data for their own purpose. To the best of our knowledge and belief, we have configured the services or content of third-party providers who are known to use data for their own purposes so that communication for purposes other than rendering their content or services on our website is prevented or communication does not come about unless you actively decide to use the service. However, since we have no control over the data collected by third parties and its processing by them we are unable to make any binding statements pertaining to the purpose and scope of the processing of your data.
Within our company those who need access to your information for the purposes described in section 4 will be given access to it. Service providers contracted by us may also be given access to your information (“contract data processors”, e.g. data centers, mailing services for newsletters, web tracking). They are bound by our directives and must provide for data security and the confidential treatment of your information under the contract data processing agreements we have concluded with them.
No sharing of information with other recipients such as advertising partners, providers of social media services or credit institutions (“third parties”) takes place.
6. IS MY PERSONAL DATA PROCESSED OUTSIDE OF THE EU OR EEA (‘TRANSFER TO A THIRD COUNTRY’)?
The use of Google Analytics as described in section 3.3. above causes personal data to be transferred to a third country since the data centers of Google Inc. are located outside of the European Union and the European Economic Area (“EU or EEA”). Such transfers of personal data to third countries may result in your personal information being transmitted to a country which does not provide for the same standard of data protection as the EU or EEA. For this case, respective EU Standard Contractual Clauses have been signed. You can request a copy of these safeguards by contacting the addresses indicated in section 1 above.
7. WHAT DATA PRIVACY RIGHTS DO I HAVE?
You have the right to request access to your personal data that is currently stored by us. If this data is incorrect or not up to date, you have the right to request rectification. You also have the right to have your personal data erased and/or its processing restricted as provided for in Art. 17 and Art. 18 GDPR. You also have the right to request a copy of the personal data provided by you in a structured, commonly-used, machine-readable format (right to data portability).
If you have given your consent to the processing of your personal information for specific purposes, you can withdraw that consent at any time for the future. Your notice of revocation is to be addressed to us by writing to the contact address indicated in section 1.
Pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR, you also have the right for reasons relating to your specific situation to raise an objection to the processing of your data that is done on the basis of Art. 6 para.1 lit.f GDPR. You also have the right to lodge an objection to the processing of your personal information for direct marketing purposes. The same applies to automated processes involving the use of individual cookies, unless they are required for providing the functionality of our website.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent data protection authority. The authority responsible for us is:
Commission nationale pour la protection des données
1, avenue du Rock’n’Roll
Telefon: +352 26 10 60-1
You also have the right to contact the data protection authority at your place of residence and request support in pursuing your matter.

10. HOW WE PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
We take technical and organizational measures to protect your personal data and keep it confidential. We take extensive technical and organizational security measures, which are regularly reviewed and adapted to technological progress, to prevent manipulation or loss or misuse of your personal data. This includes, among other things, the use of recognized encryption methods (SSL or TLS). However, we would like to point out that, due to the structure of the Internet, it is possible that the rules of data protection and the above-mentioned security measures are not observed by other persons or institutions that are not in our area of responsibility. In particular, data disclosed in unencrypted form – e.g. if this is done by e-mail – can be read by third parties. We have no technical influence on this. It is the user’s responsibility to protect the data he or she provides against misuse by encrypting it or in any other way.
