The data protection declaration of Shirtigo GmbH is based on the terms used by the European Directive and Regulation Enactor when issuing the Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). Our privacy policy should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terminology used in advance.

We use the following terms, among others, in this data protection declaration:

a) Personal data

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "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, an online identifier 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

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

c) Processing

Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organization, filing, 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

Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.

e) Profiling

Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data that consists of using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects relating to that natural person's job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or change of location.

f) Pseudonymization

Pseudonymization 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 use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

g) Controller or person responsible for processing.

The controller or person responsible for processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or 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 Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for under Union or Member State law.

Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the Controller.

i) Recipient

Recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not a third party. However, public authorities that may receive Personal Data in the context of a specific investigative task under Union or Member State law shall not be considered as recipients.

j) Third Party

Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorized to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.

k) Consent

Consent is any expression of will given voluntarily by the data subject for the specific case in an informed manner and unambiguously, in the form of a statement or other unambiguous affirmative act by which the data subject indicates that he or she consents to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

4. Data protection compact

When and how do we collect data?

Personal data is transmitted to us exclusively by means of cookies when visiting our Internet pages or through direct input by the user in forms on our site. By calling up and/or using our Internet pages, we collect, for example, pseudonymized data such as

  • the browser type,
  • the sub-pages visited on our Internet site,
  • the operating system or
  • the anonymized IP address.

When registering or making a purchase on our Internet pages, it may be necessary to provide personal data such as

  • name, first name, title
  • payment data
  • contact data (e-mail, telephone)
  • address and order data.

What are the personal data processed and used for?

All personal data collected by us is collected and used exclusively for a specific purpose. Therefore, the following reasons for processing are merely a list. More detailed information on why we collect or need to collect which data can be found in the explanations of this privacy policy.

  • Provision of tools, products & services
  • Fulfillment of legal requirements and sales contracts
  • Processing and delivery of orders
  • Payment processing
  • Processing of relevant inquiries about our tools, products & services
  • Marketing and analysis purposes
  • Informing about orders, products, services and offers
  • Optimizing the usability of our website
  • Improving the shopping experience
  • Conducting our business activities
  • Prevention of misuse of our websites
  • Security mechanisms

What rights do you have?

At any time you have the right to free

  • information,
  • correction,
  • blocking,
  • revocation and
  • deletion

of your stored data. You will find a detailed description of the data subject rights in this privacy policy.

How can I object to the use of data and exercise my rights?

To exercise your right to object or otherwise exercise your rights, you may contact any employee of Shirtigo GmbH. You are also free to exercise your right to object to individual data collection processes by means of automated procedures (opt-out) using technical specifications.

How long will personal data be stored and when will it be deleted?

We generally delete your personal data as soon as the purpose for which it was collected no longer applies. In order to comply with commercial/tax and other legal requirements, it may be necessary to block your personal data for further processing.

How does Shirtigo GmbH protect personal data?

As the controller, the Shirtigo GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can always be vulnerable to security risks, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

The website uses the industry standard SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) to encrypt the data transfer. This ensures the confidentiality of your personal information over the Internet. By using the SSL process, your data is alienated in such a way that a third party cannot reconstruct it. It also ensures that your data is only sent to the server from which it was requested.

5. rights of the data subject according to Art. 12 - 23 DSGVO

The exact wording of your rights can be found in Chapter 3 of the GDPR: https://dsgvo-gesetz.de/kapitel-3/

a) Right to confirmation

Every data subject has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to obtain confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data concerning him or her 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 to information

You may request confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data concerning you are being processed by us.

If such processing is taking place, you may request information from the controller about the following:

You have the right to request information about whether personal data concerning you is transferred to a third country or to an international organization. In this context, you may request to be informed about the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Art. 46 DSGVO in connection with the transfer.

c) Right to rectification

You have a right to rectification and/or completion vis-à-vis the controller, insofar as the processed personal data concerning you are inaccurate or incomplete. The controller shall carry out the rectification without undue delay.

d) Right to erasure (right to be forgotten)

You may request the controller to erase the personal data concerning you without undue delay, and the controller is obliged to erase such data without undue delay, if one of the following reasons applies:

(1) The personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
(2) You revoke your consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) or Art. 9(2)(a) DSGVO and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
(3) You object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DSGVO and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (2) DSGVO.
(4) The personal data concerning you have been processed unlawfully.
(5) The erasure of the personal data concerning you is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
(6) The personal data concerning you has been collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Article 8(1) DSGVO.

If the controller has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged to erase it pursuant to Article 17(1) of the GDPR, it shall take reasonable measures, including technical measures, having regard to the available technology and the cost of implementation, to inform data controllers which process the personal data that you, as the data subject, have requested that they erase all links to or copies or replications of such personal data.

The right to erasure does not exist to the extent that the processing is necessary to.

(1) for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information;
(2) for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject, or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
(3) for reasons of public interest in the area of public health pursuant to Article 9(2)(h) and (i) and Article 9(3) of the GDPR;
(4) for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes, or statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89(1) DSGVO, insofar as the right referred to in section a) is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudice the achievement of the purposes of such processing; or
(5) for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.

e) Right to restrict processing.

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to obtain from the controller the restriction of processing.

You may request the restriction of the processing of personal data concerning you under the following conditions:

(2) the processing is unlawful and you object to the erasure of the personal data and request instead the restriction of the use of the personal data;
(3) the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you need it for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; or
(4) if you have objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the controller's legitimate grounds override your grounds.

If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data may - apart from being stored - only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or a Member State.

If the restriction of processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.

f) Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data was provided, provided that.

(1) the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) DSGVO or Art. 9(2)(a) DSGVO or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6(1)(b) DSGVO and

(2) the processing is carried out with the help of automated procedures.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to obtain that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.

The right to data portability does not apply to processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

g) Right to object

You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) DSGVO; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. In this context, we ask you to explain the reasons on the basis of which you object to the processing of your personal data by us.

The controller will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.

If the personal data concerning you is processed for the purposes of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to processing of the personal data concerning you for the purposes of such marketing; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.

If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.

The data subject is also free, in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to exercise his/her right to object by means of automated procedures (opt-out) using technical specifications.

h) Automatisierte Entscheidungen im Einzelfall einschließlich Profiling

Any data subject concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him or her, unless the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is permitted by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and that law contains suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is made with the data subject's explicit consent.

If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or (2) it is made with the data subject's explicit consent, the Shirtigo GmbH shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, which include at least the right to obtain the data subject's involvement on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and contest the decision.

If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated decisions, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.

However, as a responsible company, we do not use automated decision-making or profiling.

i) Right to complain to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, workplace or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR.

The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been submitted shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Article 78 GDPR.

The supervisory authority of Shirtigo GmbH is the:

State Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information of North Rhine-Westphalia.

Helga Block
PO Box 20 04 44
40102 Düsseldorf

Kavalleriestraße 2-4

6. Legal basis of processing

Your data will be stored and processed by us in compliance with the relevant legal provisions, in particular in compliance with the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG) as well as the General Data Protection Regulation (EU DSGVO).

Art. 6 I lit. a DSGVO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in 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 a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for a delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DSGVO. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services or deposit of the information in the user account.

Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DSGVO.

Finally, processing operations could also/or be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DSGVO. 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 protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were 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 - i.e. us (Recital 47, Sentence 2 DSGVO).

Personal data processing for marketing purposes is carried out on the basis of the legal provisions of Section 96 (3) TKG as well as Art 6 (1) lit a (consent) and/or f (legitimate interest) of the DSGVO. Our concern in terms of the DSGVO (legitimate interest) is the improvement of our offer and our website to permanently improve your shopping experience and to make it customer-friendly and individual for you. The evaluation and analysis of the pseudonymized data collected from you helps us to do this. Furthermore, our legitimate interest is to conduct our business for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders. However, whenever data processing is based on legitimate interest, the data subject - i.e. you - will also be given the right to object (opt-out).

7. Transfer of data to third parties

We do not transfer your personal data to third parties for purposes other than those listed below. We will only pass on your personal data to third parties if:

  • you have given your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO,
  • the disclosure is permitted under Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO to protect our legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in the non-disclosure of your data,
  • in the event that there is a legal obligation for the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. c DSGVO, as well as
  • this is legally permissible and necessary for the processing of contractual relationships according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DSGVO.

8. Duration for which the personal data is stored and routine deletion and blocking of personal data

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Storage may take place beyond this if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. Blocking or deletion of the data will also take place if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a necessity for further storage of the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.

9. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of a 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 sometimes required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner in the case of an order). Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for you as the data subject to provide us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, you are obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with you. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract could not be concluded. Before providing personal data, you must contact our contact person for data protection. Our contact person will clarify 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 of not providing the personal data would be.

10. Existence of automated decision-making

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

11. Collection, processing and use of general data and information

If you call up our Internet pages without sending us information directly, e.g. by means of a contact form or registration, we only collect such personal data that your web browser transmits to our server in order to enable the display of our Internet presence and to ensure stability and security. The following general data and information is collected in this context, for example:

  • Information about the browser type and the language and version used.
  • The operating system of the user
  • The user's Internet service provider
  • The Internet protocol address (IP address) of the user
  • The date and time of access to the website
  • Websites that are accessed by the user's system via our website
  • Other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, Shirtigo GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the visitor. This information is rather required in order to

  • to deliver the contents of our website correctly,
  • to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website.
  • To provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.

This anonymously collected data and information is ultimately evaluated by us with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and ultimately ensuring an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. These purposes also include our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. The general data and information are stored in log files on our servers separately from any personal data provided by you. A storage of your IP address or other data, which enables a personal allocation of the data to you, does not take place.

Furthermore, the data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. No other evaluation of this data takes place. Consequently, there is no possibility for the user to object.

12. Collection, processing and use of personal data by cookies

What are cookies?

Our Internet pages use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored on a computer system via an Internet browser and through which certain information flows to us as the person responsible for setting the cookie.

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 by which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This makes it possible to distinguish visited Internet pages and servers, as well as the individual browser from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified via the unique cookie ID. The user data collected in this way is pseudonymized by technical precautions. Therefore, an assignment of the data to the calling user is no longer possible. The data is not stored together with other personal data of the users. The user data collected by technically necessary cookies are not used to create user profiles.

Are cookies dangerous?

Through the use of cookies, we can provide the users of this website with services that would not be possible without the cookie setting. By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized in terms of the user. Cookies enable us, as already mentioned, to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website and to make it as comfortable as possible. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re-enter his or her access data each time he or she visits the website, because this is handled by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in an online store. The online store uses a cookie to remember the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart. Cookies can further be used for anonymized analysis of the use of a website and its functions by its users. The information thus generated is transferred to the provider's server and stored there. The analyzed data are the basis for aligning our websites according to the wishes of our visitors and customers and to improve their content and functions.In these purposes also lies our legitimate interest in the processing of personal data according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

18.3 Use and application of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google") 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection, compilation and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data on which website a data subject came to a website from (so-called referrers), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is predominantly used for the optimization of a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising. The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the flow of visitors to our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us showing the activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website. For example, we continue to use Google Analytics to analyze data from Google AdWords for statistical purposes. If you do not wish this to happen, you can deactivate this via the Ads Preferences Manager (http://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/?hl=de).

Google Analytics sets a cookie on the information technology system of you as the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. Each time you call up one of the individual pages of this website on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. By means of the cookie, personal information, for example the access time, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website are stored.

We use the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this additive, the IP address of the Internet connection of you as the data subject is shortened and anonymized by Google if access to our Internet pages is from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. This guarantees the masking of your IP address so that all data is collected anonymously. The anonymized IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google.

The processing of users' personal data enables us to analyze the surfing behavior of our users. By evaluating the data obtained, we are able to compile information about the use of the individual components of our website. This helps us to continuously improve our website and its user-friendliness. In these purposes also lies our legitimate interest in processing the data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. By anonymizing the IP address, the interest of users in their personal data protection is sufficiently taken into account.

Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address, is transferred 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 is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for our recording purposes. In our case, this is the case after 24 months.

In order to oblige Google to process the transmitted personal data in accordance with our instructions and to comply with the applicable data protection regulations, we have concluded an order processing agreement with Google. In addition, Google has submitted to the Privacy Shield agreement concluded between the European Union and the USA and has certified itself. In this way, Google undertakes to comply with the standards and regulations of European data protection law. You can find more information in the entry linked below: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of an appropriate setting of 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 you - the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. This browser add-on tells Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about website visits may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google as an objection. If the information technology system is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later time, the browser add-on must be reinstalled in order to deactivate Google Analytics. Provided that the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated, there is the option of reinstalling or reactivating the browser add-on.

Alternatively, we offer users on our website the option of opting out of the analysis process. To do this, you must follow this link. An opt-out cookie with a validity of 180 days will be set, which prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete all cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.

18.4 Use and application of Google AdWords conversion tracking

We have integrated Google AdWords on this website. The operating company of the Google AdWords services is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to place ads both in Google's search engine results and in the Google advertising network. Google AdWords enables an advertiser to specify certain keywords in advance, by means of which an ad is displayed in Google's search engine results exclusively when the user retrieves a keyword-relevant search result using the search engine. In the Google advertising network, the ads are distributed on topic-relevant websites by means of an automatic algorithm and in compliance with the previously defined keywords. The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our website by displaying interest-relevant advertising on the websites of third-party companies and in the search engine results of the Google search engine.

If you, as a data subject, access our website via a Google ad, a so-called conversion cookie will be stored on your information technology system by Google. What cookies are has already been explained above. The conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and is not used to identify you. If the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie is used to track whether certain sub-pages, for example the shopping cart from an online store system, were called up on our website. Through the conversion cookie, both we and Google can track whether a data subject who arrived at our website via an AdWords ad generated a sale, i.e. completed or cancelled a purchase of goods. The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie are 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 optimize our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor other advertisers of Google AdWords receive information from Google by means of which the data subject could be identified.

We use the conversion tracking of Google AdWords for marketing and optimization purposes, in particular to place relevant and interesting ads for you on Google and the Google partner network and thus improve our offer. This is also our legitimate interest in processing the above data in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.

Mittels des Conversion-Cookies werden personenbezogene Informationen, beispielsweise Ihre besuchten Internetseiten, gespeichert. Bei jedem Besuch unserer Internetseiten werden demnach personenbezogene Daten, einschließlich der IP-Adresse an Google in den Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika übertragen. Diese personenbezogenen Daten werden durch Google in den Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika gespeichert. Google hat sich dem zwischen der Europäischen Union und den USA geschlossenen Privacy-Shield-Abkommen unterworfen und zertifiziert. Dadurch verpflichtet sich Google, die Standards und Vorschriften des europäischen Datenschutzrechts einzuhalten. Nähere Informationen können Sie dem nachfolgend verlinkten Eintrag entnehmen: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website and by the domain " googleadservices.com", as already described above, at any time by means of an appropriate setting of 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 conversion cookie on the information technology system of you the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs. Furthermore, it is possible to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, you must call up the link www.google.de/settings/ads and make the desired settings there.

Alternatively, we offer users on our website the option of opting out of the analysis process. To do this, you must follow this link . An opt-out cookie with a validity of 180 days will be set, which prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete all cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.

18.5 Use and application of Google Remarketing

We have integrated Google Remarketing services on this website. The operating company of the Google Remarketing services is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Google Remarketing is a function of Google AdWords that enables a company to display advertisements to Internet users who have previously visited the company's website. The integration of Google Remarketing thus allows a company to create user-related advertising and consequently to display interest-relevant advertisements to the Internet user.

The purpose of Google Remarketing is to display interest-relevant advertising. Google Remarketing enables us to display advertisements via the Google advertising network or to have them displayed on other Internet pages that are tailored to the individual needs and interests of Internet users. To do this, Google AdWords must first form target groups based on the visitors recorded with the cookies, to whom an advertisement can then be played out in the Google advertising network. Furthermore, with the help of these target groups, "similar target groups" can be formed in Google AdWords, which have similar characteristics to the visitors.

Google Remarketing sets a cookie on the information technology system of you the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to recognize the visitor to our website when the visitor subsequently calls up websites that are also members of the Google advertising network. Each time a website is accessed on which the Google Remarketing service has been integrated, the internet browser automatically identifies itself to Google. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address or the user's surfing behavior, which Google uses, among other things, to display interest-relevant advertising.

We use Google Remarketing for marketing and optimization purposes, in particular to display relevant and interesting ads for you in the Google partner network and thus to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you. This is also our legitimate interest in processing the above data in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.

Every time you visit our website, personal data, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google has submitted to and certified the Privacy Shield Agreement concluded between the European Union and the USA. Google thereby undertakes to comply with the standards and regulations of European data protection law. You can find more information in the entry linked https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of an appropriate setting of 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. In addition, a cookie already set by Google can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs. If you do not wish to use Google's remarketing function, you can also deactivate it in principle by making the appropriate settings at http://www.google.com/settings/ads. Alternatively, you can deactivate the use of cookies for interest-based advertising via the advertising network initiative by following the instructions at http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.

Alternatively, we offer users the option of opting out of the analytics process on our website. To do so, you must follow this link. An opt-out cookie with a validity of 180 days will be set, which will prevent the future collection of your data when visiting this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete all cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.

Microsoft Clarity analyzes the user behavior of our website. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. We have a legitimate interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our website.

In the course of the analysis, usage and user-related information such as IP address, location, time and website visits are transmitted to a Microsoft server in the USA and stored. However, we use the service with an anonymization function so that Microsoft already shortens the IP address within the EU or EEA.

18.7 Deployment and use of Facebook Tracking Pixel

We have integrated components of the company Facebook on this website. Facebook is a social network. The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc, 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. If you live outside the USA or Canada, the controller of personal data is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

We use a "visitor action pixel" within our website, called the "Facebook pixel". Thereby, so-called tracking pixels are integrated on our pages. With its help, we can track the actions of users after they have seen or clicked on a Facebook ad. This allows us to record the effectiveness of the Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes. In addition, the use of the pixel makes it possible to create anonymous target groups ("Custom Audience") on Facebook, to which interest-based ads can be played as part of remarketing activities on Facebook. The pixel is used without "Advanced Matching". No CRM data is used to create Custom Audiences.

The collected data is anonymous for us as the operator of this website, we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the users. However, this data is stored and processed by Facebook. Facebook can link this data to your Facebook account and also use it for its own advertising purposes. They can enable Facebook as well as its partners to place advertisements on and off Facebook.

We use Facebook Pixel for marketing and optimization purposes, in particular to place relevant and interesting ads for you on Facebook and thus to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you. This is also our legitimate interest in processing the above data according to Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.

Each time you visit our website, personal data, including the IP address, is transmitted to Facebook in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Facebook in the United States of America. In addition, Facebook has submitted to the Privacy Shield agreement concluded between the European Union and the USA and has certified itself. In this way, Facebook undertakes to comply with the standards and regulations of European data protection law. You can find more information in the entry linked https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active.

The data policy published by Facebook, which can be accessed at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains which setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of data subjects. In addition, various applications are available that make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Such applications can be used to suppress data transmission to Facebook. The "Custom Audiences" remarketing function can be deactivated at https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen. This requires logging in to Facebook. Usage-based advertising from Facebook can also be deactivated on the website of the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/.

19. data protection during applications and in application processes

We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application process. The processing may also take place electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits relevant application documents to us electronically, for example by e-mail. If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant, the application documents will be deleted nine months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests prevent deletion. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
