II. Sources and data for the processing of personal data

We process personal data that we receive from you in the course of your internet or social media use or that you have transmitted to us via one of our contact forms. 

Data is stored in server log files, which are collected and automatically stored by the provider and mostly transmitted to us by your browser. These are:

  • Information about the browser type and version used
  • The operating system of the user
  • The user's Internet service provider
  • Referrer URL
  • Name of the requested file
  • The amount of data transferred
  • The IP address of the user
  • Date and time of access
  • Websites from which the user's system accesses our website
  • Websites that are accessed by the user's system via our website

Furthermore, we may process other data comparable to the above categories. 

We collect the listed data to ensure a smooth dial-up of the website and to enable a comfortable use of our website by the users. In addition, the log file is used to evaluate system security and stability as well as for administrative purposes. The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data or the log files is our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

Currently, we also offer the following social media channels:

In the context of social media use, we may retrieve statistical data concerning website usage from the respective social media company. This may include information on page views and activities; views of individual articles, videos, services (e.g. route planner), etc.; comments, shared content, responses, usage rates: Men and women, origin related to country and city, language. The legal basis for the retrieval of data during social media use is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

III. Purpose of the processing and legal basis

We process personal data in accordance with the provisions of the European Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG)

1. Within the framework of the weighing of interests in the event of conflicting interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR and Art. 49 para. 1 p. 2 GDPR)

The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data is our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR). We collect the data listed above to ensure a smooth dial-up of the website and to enable a comfortable use of our website by the users. In addition, the log file is used to evaluate system security and stability as well as for administrative purposes. In addition, we store your data for reasons of technical security, in particular to defend against attempted attacks on our web server. 
Examples in this context:

  • Testing and optimization of procedures for needs analysis and direct customer approach;
  • Advertising or market and opinion research, e.g. by using cookies, insofar as you have not objected to the use of your data;
  • Assertion of legal claims and defense in legal disputes;
  • Ensuring IT security and IT operations;
  • Measures for business management and further development of services and other offers.
  • Sporadic evaluation of data for research purposes in anonymized form

In particular, so-called usage profiles are created by the social media companies by means of your usage behavior and used for the placement of advertisements. Cookies are usually stored on your computer for this purpose.

2. Within the framework of the weighing of interests in the case of similar interests (Art. 49 para. 1 lit. c) GDPR)

If the balance of interests shows that both the responsible and the data subject have an interest in the transfer of data to a third country, the data transfer is based on Art. 49 para. 1 lit. c) GDPR.

3. Within the scope of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR and Art. 49 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR)

Insofar as you have given us consent to process personal data for certain purposes (e.g. transfer of data to third parties, evaluation of data for marketing purposes), the lawfulness of this processing is based on your consent. Consent given can be revoked at any time. 

Please note that the revocation is only effective for the future. Processing that took place before the revocation is not affected.

If you have given consent to the social media companies to process certain data, the processing is carried out on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.

4. Due to legal requirements, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) GDPR or in the public interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e) GDPR.

In addition, we are subject to various legal obligations, i.e. legal requirements (e.g. commercial law, tax laws, etc.). Insofar as data is processed in this regard, this is done exclusively on the basis of these regulations. 

In particular, the Infection Protection Act or similar national and international regulations to which we are bound due to the current Covid 19 pandemic may be considered as such legal basis.

IV. Passing on of data

Within the company, those departments receive your data that need it to fulfill our contractual and legal obligations. Processors used by us (Art. 28 GDPR) may also receive data for these purposes. These are companies in the categories of IT services, telecommunications, consulting and advisory services, and sales and marketing.

With regard to the transfer of data to recipients outside the company, it should be noted that we will only transfer your data if this is permitted or required by law, you have consented or we are authorized to provide information. Under these conditions, recipients of personal data may be, for example:

  • Public agencies and institutions (e.g. public prosecutor's office, police, supervisory authorities) in the event of a legal or official obligation.

Other data recipients may be those bodies for which you have given us your consent to transfer data.

1. Google Analytics

On our homepage we use the web analytics service Google Analytics of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website and internet use. The legal basis is the consent given by you pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.

For this service, a cookie is set on your computer and the usage data stored in the process is forwarded to Google and transferred to a server, which is usually located in the USA, and stored there. 

Google uses this information to evaluate the use of our online offer and, in particular, to create user statistics with pseudonymized usage profiles. Google Analytics is only used with IP anonymization activated, which means that the IP address of users is truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. A transmission of the full IP address to a Google server in the USA can nevertheless not be excluded. Users can prevent storage of cookies by refusing to give their consent or by adjusting their browser software accordingly. Furthermore, you can prevent the transmission of the data stored by the cookie to Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

The Google marketing services allow us to display advertisements for and on our website in a more targeted manner in order to present users only ads that potentially match their interests.

User data is processed pseudonymously as part of Google's marketing services. This means that Google does not store and process the name or email address of the user, for example, but processes the relevant data on a cookie basis within pseudonymous user profiles. This does not apply if a user has expressly allowed Google to process the data without this pseudonymization. 

We may integrate third-party advertisements based on the Google marketing service Google Ads or "DoubleClick". The tool uses cookies that allow Google and its partner websites to serve ads based on users' visits to this website or other websites on the Internet.

    You have the right to complain to a supervisory authority in accordance with Article 77 GDPR. As a rule, you can contact the supervisory authority of the federal state of our registered office or, if applicable, that of your usual place of residence or workplace for this purpose.
  • Right of withdrawal:
    Right to revoke consent given in accordance with Art. 7 para. 3 GDPR: You have the right to revoke consent to the processing of data once given at any time with effect for the future.

XXIII. Right of objection

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 para. lit. e) GDPR (data processing in the public interest) and Article 6 para. 1 lit. f), 49 para. 1 lit. c), para. 2 of the General Data Protection Regulation (data processing on the basis of a balance of interests); this also applies to profiling based on this provision within the meaning of Article 4 No. 4 GDPR. 

If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we 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. 

In individual cases, we process your personal data to conduct direct marketing. You have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purposes of such advertising; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct advertising.

If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes.

The objection can be made form-free and should preferably be addressed to:

XXIV. Obligation to provide data

In the context of Internet or social media use, you only have to provide the personal data that is required for use or that we are legally obligated to collect. Without this provided data, a meaningful use may be limited or impossible.

XXV. External links

Insofar as links are provided to other websites, we have neither influence nor control over the linked content and the data protection provisions there. We recommend that you check the data protection declarations of linked websites when you access them in order to determine whether and to what extent personal data is collected, processed, used or made available to third parties.

XXVI. Automated decision-making in individual cases

Fully automated decision-making pursuant to Art. 22 GDPR does not take place. If we use these procedures in individual cases, we will inform you about this separately, provided this is required by law.

XXVII. Data use for profiling (scoring)

We do not process your data with the aim of evaluating certain personal aspects (profiling). In the context of data collection by tracking services, your data will be used to evaluate your usage behavior and possibly to create movement profiles.

XXVIII. Other

At this point, we would like to inform you about other options for protecting your rights, setting options and protecting your privacy with social media companies.
