  3. General information on data processing
    1. Scope of personal data processing
      We only process personal data of our users if this is necessary to provide a functional website as well as our content and services. Collection and utilisation of our users' personal data is only undertaken periodically with the user's consent. An exception applies in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for legal or circumstantial reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.
    2. Legal basis for processing personal data
      Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 Para. 1 (a) EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as legal basis.
      In processing personal data necessary for performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR applies as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures.
      Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c GDPR applies as the legal basis.
      In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require a processing of personal data, Art. 6 1 lit. d GDPR applies as the legal basis. If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR applies as the legal basis for processing.
    3. Data Erasure and Storage Duration
      The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the data controller is subject. Blocking or erasure of data will be carried out even if a storage deadline prescribed by the above-mentioned standards expires, unless data storage is a necessity for concluding or performing a contract.

The services allow us to combine our ads with certain search terms or to place ads for previous visitors in which, for example, services that visitors have viewed on our website are advertised.

        For interest-related offers, an analysis of online user behaviour is necessary. Google uses cookies to perform this analysis.

The statistics provided by Google include the total number of users who clicked on one of our ads and, if applicable, whether they were forwarded to a page of our website with a conversion tag. Based on these statistics, we can trace the search terms for which our advertisement was clicked particularly often and which advertisements lead to contact by the user via the contact form or via telephone. With respect to telephone contact by prospects or customers, the statistics provided by Google include the start time, end time, status (missed or received), duration (seconds), caller area code, telephone charges and call type.
