Datasheet

 

Introduction and overview
We have written this data protection declaration (version 06/18/2021-111765426) in order to explain to you in accordance with the provisions of
the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 and applicable national laws, which personal data (data for short) we as the person

responsible – and that of processors commissioned by us (e.g. providers) – process, will process in the future and what legal options you have.

The terms used are to be understood as gender-neutral.

 

In short: We inform you comprehensively about data that we process about you. Privacy statements usually sound very technical and use legal

jargon. This data protection declaration, on the other hand, is intended to describe the most important things as simply and transparently as possible.
As far as transparency is conducive, technical terms are explained in a reader-friendly way, links to further information are provided and graphics are
used. We are thus informing you in clear and simple language that we only process personal data in the course of our business activities if there is a
corresponding legal basis. This is certainly not possible if you make the most concise, unclear and legal-technical statements possible, as they are

often standard on the Internet when it comes to data protection. I hope that you find the following explanations interesting and informative and that you

may find some information that you did not already know. If you still have questions, we would like to ask you to contact the responsible person named below or in the imprint, to follow the links provided and to look at further information on third-party websites. Our contact details can of course also be

found in the imprint.

 

scope of application

This data protection declaration applies to all personal data processed by us in the company and to all personal data that companies commissioned by

us (processors) process. By personal data we mean information within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 1 GDPR such as a person’s name, e-mail address and postal address. The processing of personal data ensures that we can offer and bill our services and products, whether online or offline. The scope of this privacy policy includes:

 

  ° All online presences (websites, online shops) that we operate

  ° Social media appearances and e-mail communication

  ° mobile apps for smartphones and other devices

 

In short: The data protection declaration applies to all areas in which personal data is processed in a structured manner in the company via the

channels mentioned. If we enter into legal relationships with you outside of these channels, we will inform you separately if necessary.

 

legal bases

In the following data protection declaration, we provide you with transparent information on the legal principles and regulations, i.e. the legal basis

of the General Data Protection Regulation, which enable us to process personal data. As far as EU law is concerned, we refer to REGULATION (EU) 2016/679 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of April 27, 2016. You can of course read this EU General Data Protection
Regulation online on EUR-Lex, the gateway to the EU -Legal, see https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/DE/TXT/?uri=celex%3A32016R0679.

 

We only process your data if at least one of the following conditions applies:

 

1. Consent (Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR): You have given us your consent to process data for a specific purpose. An example would be the

    storage of the data you have entered on a contact form.

2. Contract (Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. b GDPR): In order to fulfill a contract or pre-contractual obligations with you, we process your data. if For

    example, if we conclude a sales contract with you, we need personal information in advance.

3. Legal obligation (Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit.c GDPR): If we are subject to a legal obligation, we process your data. For example we are legally

    obliged to keep invoices for bookkeeping. These usually contain personal data.

4. Legitimate interests (Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR): In the case of legitimate interests that do not restrict your fundamental rights, we reserve

    the processing of personal data. For example, we need to process certain data to keep our website secure and economically efficient to be able

    to operate. This processing is therefore a legitimate interest. Other conditions such as the perception of recordings in the public interest and the

    exercise of official authority and the protection of vital interests Other conditions such as the perception of recordings in the public interest and

    the exercise of public authority as well as the protection of vital interests do not usually apply to us. If such a legal basis should be relevant, it will

    be shown in the appropriate place.

 

In addition to the EU regulation, national laws also apply:

 ° In Austria, this is the federal law for the protection of natural persons when processing personal data (data protection law), DSG for short.

 ° In Germany, the Federal Data Protection Act, BDSG for short, applies.

 

If other regional or national laws apply, we will inform you about them in the following sections. Contact details of the person responsible If you have

any questions about data protection, you will find the contact details of the person or body responsible below:

storage duration

The fact that we only store personal data for as long as is absolutely necessary for the provision of our services and products is a general criterion

for us. This means that we delete personal data as soon as the reason for the data processing no longer exists. In some cases, we are legally obliged

to store certain data even after the original purpose has ceased to exist, for example for accounting purposes. If you wish your data to be deleted or

revoke your consent to data processing, the data will be deleted as quickly as possible and provided there is no obligation to store it We will inform

you below about the specific duration of the respective data processing, provided that we have further information on this.

web hosting

 

Web Hosting Summary

Affected: Visitors to the website

Purpose: professional hosting of  the website and security of operation

Processed data: IP address, time of website visit, browser used and other data.

More details can be found below or at the respective used web hosting provider.

Duration of storage: depends on the respective provider, but usually 2 weeks Legal basis:

Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f GDPR (legitimate interests)

 

What is web hosting?

When you visit websites today, certain information – including personal data – is automatically created and stored, including on this website. This data should be processed as sparingly as possible and only with justification. By the way, by website we mean the entirety of all web pages on a domain, i.e. everything from the start page (homepage) to the very last subpage (like this one). By domain we mean, for example, example.de or example.com.

When you want to view a website on a screen, you use a program called a web browser. You probably know a few web browsers by name: Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, and Apple Safari.

This web browser needs to connect to another computer where the website’s code is stored: the web server. The operation of a web server is a complicated and time-consuming task, which is why this is usually taken on by professional providers, the providers. These offer web hosting and thus ensure reliable and error-free storage of website data.

Personal data may be processed when the browser on your computer (desktop, laptop, smartphone) connects and during data transfer to and from the web server. On the one hand, your computer stores data, on the other hand, the web server also has to store data for a period of time in order to ensure proper operation.

As an illustration:

 



Your browser (e.g. Chrome) on

your computer, with which you

visit our website visit over the

internet.

      

 

        The Internet


Web server at our provider, of our website avaiable provides and data about your visit save for a while.

 

Why do we process personal data?

 

The purposes of data processing are:

 

1. Professional website hosting and operation security

2. to maintain operational and IT security

3. Anonymous evaluation of access behavior to improve our offer and, if necessary, for criminal prosecution or the pursuit of claims

 

Which data are processed?

 

Even while you are visiting our website, our web server, which is the computer on which this website is stored, usually automatically saves data such as

 

° the complete internet address (URL) of the accessed website (e.g. https://www.beispielwebsite.de/beispielunterseite.html?tid=111765426)

° Browser and browser version (e.g. Chrome 87)

° the operating system used (e.g. Windows 10)

° the address (URL) of the previously visited page (referrer URL) (e.g. https://www.beispielquellsite.de/vondabinichkommen.html/)

° the hostname and IP address of the device from which access is being made (e.g. COMPUTERNAME and 194.23.43.121)

° Date and time

° in files, the so-called web server log files

 

 

How long is data stored?

 

As a rule, the above data is stored for two weeks and then automatically deleted. We do not pass on this data, but we cannot rule out that this data will be viewed by authorities in the event of illegal behavior.

 

In short: your visit is logged by our provider (company that runs our website on special computers (servers)), but we do not pass on your data without your consent!

 

legal basis

 

The lawfulness of the processing of personal data in the context of web hosting results from Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR (protection of legitimate interests), because the use of professional hosting with a provider is necessary to make the company safe and user-friendly on the Internet present and to be able to pursue attacks and claims from this if necessary.

 

cookies

 

Cookies summary

Affected: Visitors to the website

Purpose: depending on the cookie in question. More details can be found below or from the manufacturer of the software that sets the cookie.

Processed data: Depending on the cookie used. More details can be found below or from the manufacturer of the software that sets the cookie.

What are cookies?

Our website uses HTTP cookies to store user-specific data. In the following we explain what cookies are and why they are used so that you can better understand the following data protection declaration.

 

Whenever you surf the Internet, you use a browser. Well-known browsers include Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge. Most websites store small text files in your browser. These files are called cookies.

 

One thing cannot be denied: Cookies are really useful little helpers. Almost all websites use cookies. More precisely, they are HTTP cookies, as there are other cookies for other areas of application. HTTP cookies are small files that are stored on your computer by our website. These cookie files are automatically stored in the cookie folder, which is basically the “brain” of your browser. A cookie consists of a name and a value. When defining a cookie, one or more attributes must also be specified.

 

Cookies store certain user data from you, such as language or personal page settings. When you visit our site again, your browser transmits the “user-related” information back to our site. Thanks to cookies, our website knows who you are and offers you the settings you are used to. In some browsers each cookie has its own file, in others such as Firefox all cookies are stored in a single file.

 

The graphic below shows a possible interaction between a web browser such as B. Chrome and the web server. The web browser requests a website and receives a cookie from the server, which the browser uses again as soon as another page is requested.

 

 

                           

 

                                       browsers such as e.g

                                       Chrome or Firefox with

        Web server of the website

There are both first-party cookies and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are created directly by our site, third-party cookies are created by partner

websites (e.g. Google Analytics). Each cookie must be evaluated individually, since each cookie stores different data. The expiry time of a cookie also varies

from a few minutes to a few years. Cookies are not software programs and do not contain viruses, Trojans or other “pests”. Cookies also cannot access

information on your PC.

For example, cookie data can look like this:

Name: _ga Value: GA1.2.1326744211.152111765426-9 Purpose: Differentiation of website visitors Expiration date: after 2 years

A browser should be able to support these minimum sizes:

° At least 4096 bytes per cookie

° At least 50 cookies per domain

° At least 3000 cookies in total

What types of cookies are there?

The question of which cookies we use in particular depends on the services used and is clarified in the following sections of the data protection declaration.

At this point we would like to briefly discuss the different types of HTTP cookies. There are 4 types of cookies:

Essential cookies These cookies are necessary to ensure basic functions of the website. For example, these cookies are needed if a user puts a product in the

shopping cart, then continues surfing on other pages and only goes to the checkout later. These cookies do not delete the shopping cart, even if the user closes

their browser window.

Functional cookies These cookies collect information about user behavior and whether the user receives any error messages. In addition, these cookies are also

used to measure the loading time and behavior of the website in different browsers.

Targeting cookies These cookies ensure a better user experience. For example, entered locations, font sizes or form data are saved.

Advertising cookies These cookies are also called targeting cookies. They are used to provide the user with individually tailored advertising. This can be very

useful, but also very annoying.

Usually, when you visit a website for the first time, you will be asked which of these types of cookies you would like to allow. And of course this decision is also

stored in a cookie. If you want to know more about cookies and are not afraid of technical documentation, we recommend https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6265,

the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Request for Comments called “HTTP State Management Mechanism”.

Purpose of processing via cookies The purpose ultimately depends on the respective cookie. More details can be found below or from the manufacturer of the

software that sets the cookie.

Which data are processed? Cookies are little helpers for many different tasks. Unfortunately, it is not possible to generalize which data is stored in cookies, but

we will inform you about the processed or stored data in the following data protection declaration.

Storage duration of cookies The storage period depends on the respective cookie and is specified below. Some cookies are deleted after less than an hour, others

can remain stored on a computer for several years.

You can also influence the storage period yourself. You can manually delete all cookies at any time via your browser (see also “Right of objection” below).

Furthermore, cookies that are based on consent will be deleted at the latest after you withdraw your consent, whereby the legality of storage remains unaffected

until then.

Right to object – how can I delete cookies? You decide for yourself how and whether you want to use cookies. Regardless of which service or website the cookies

come from, you always have the option of deleting or deactivating cookies or only partially allowing them. For example, you can block third-party cookies but allow

all other cookies.

If you want to find out which cookies have been stored in your browser, if you want to change or delete cookie settings, you can find this in your browser settings:

Chrome: Delete, enable and manage cookies in Chrome

Safari: Managing Cookies and Website Data with Safari

Firefox: Clear cookies to remove data websites have placed on your computer

Internet Explorer: Delete and manage cookies

Microsoft Edge: Deleting and managing cookies

If you generally do not want any cookies, you can set up your browser so that it always informs you when a cookie is to be set. You can decide for each individual

cookie whether you allow the cookie or not. The procedure differs depending on the browser. It is best to search for the instructions in Google with the search term

“Delete cookies Chrome” or “Deactivate cookies Chrome” in the case of a Chrome browser.

legal basis The so-called “Cookie Guidelines” have been in place since 2009. It states that the storage of cookies requires your consent (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR). Within

the EU countries, however, there are still very different reactions to these directives. In Austria, however, this directive was implemented in Section 96 (3) of the

Telecommunications Act (TKG). In Germany, the cookie guidelines have not been implemented as national law. Instead, this guideline was largely implemented in

Section 15 (3) of the Telemedia Act (TMG).

For absolutely necessary cookies, even if no consent has been given. there are legitimate interests (Article 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR), which in most cases are of an economic

nature. We want to provide visitors to our website with a pleasant user experience and certain cookies are often strictly necessary for this.

If cookies that are not absolutely necessary are used, this will only happen with your consent. In this respect, the legal basis is Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR.

In the following sections you will be informed in more detail about the use of cookies if the software used uses cookies.

What is Google Analytics?

We use the analysis tracking tool Google Analytics (GA) from the American company Google Inc. on our website. The company Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services in Europe. Google Analytics collects data about your actions on our website. For example, if you click on a link, this action is stored in a cookie and sent to Google Analytics. The reports we receive from Google Analytics allow us to better tailor our website and service to your needs. In the following we will go into more detail about
the tracking tool and, above all, inform you about which data is stored and how you can prevent this.

The reports we receive from Google Analytics allow us to better tailor our website and service to your needs. In the following we will go into more detail about the tracking tool and, above all, inform you about which data is stored and how you can prevent this.

Google processes the data and we receive reports on your user behavior. These reports may include the following:

° Target group reports: With target group reports, we get to know our users better and know more precisely who is interested in our service.
° Ad reports: Ad reports make it easier for us to analyze and improve our online advertising.
° Acquisition Reports: Acquisition reports provide us with helpful information on how to attract more people to our service.
° Behavioral reports: Here we learn how you interact with our website. We can understand which way you are on our side back and which
   links you click on.
° Conversion reports: Conversion is a process in which you carry out a desired action based on a marketing message. To the Example when
   you change from a pure website visitor to a buyer or newsletter subscriber. We learn more from these reports about how our marketing   
   measures are received by you. This is how we want to increase our conversion rate.
° Real-time reports: Here we always know immediately what is happening on our website. For example, we can see how many users are
   currently reading this text.

Why do we use Google Analytics on our website?

Our goal with this website is clear: We want to offer you the best possible service. The statistics and data from Google Analytics help us to achieve this goal.

The statistically evaluated data give us a clear picture of the strengths and weaknesses of our website. On the one hand, we can optimize
our site so that interested people can find it more easily on Google. On the other hand, the data helps us to better understand you as a visitor.
We therefore know exactly what we need to improve on our website in order to offer you the best possible service. The data also helps us to
carry out our advertising and marketing measures more individually and cost-effectively. After all, it only makes sense to show our products and services to people who care.

What data is stored by Google Analytics?

Google Analytics uses a tracking code to create a random, unique ID that is linked to your browser cookie. This is how Google Analytics recognizes you as a new user. The next time you visit our site, you will be recognized as a “returning” user. All collected data is stored together with this user ID. This makes it possible to evaluate pseudonymous user profiles in the first place. In order to be able to analyze our website with Google Analytics, a property ID must be included in the tracking code. The data is then stored in the corresponding property. For each newly created property, the Google Analytics 4 property is the default. Alternatively, you can also create the Universal Analytics property.

Depending on the property used, data is stored for different lengths of time.

Identifiers such as cookies and app instance IDs are used to measure your interactions on our website. Interactions are any type of action you take on our website.

If you also use other Google systems (such as a Google account), data generated via Google Analytics can be linked to third-party cookies. Google does not pass on

Google Analytics data unless we as the website operator authorize this. Exceptions may arise if required by law.

The following cookies are used by Google Analytics:

Name: _ga

Value: 2.1326744211.152111765426-5

Purpose: By default, analytics.js uses the _ga cookie to store the user ID. Basically, it serves to differentiate between website visitors.

Name: __utmv

Value: not specified

Purpose: The cookie is used to store user-defined user data. It is always updated when information is sent to Google Analytics.

Expiry date: after 2 years

Note: This list cannot claim to be complete, since Google is constantly changing the choice of its cookies. Here we show you an overview of the most important data that is collected with Google Analytics:

Heatmaps: Google creates so-called heatmaps. Heatmaps show exactly those areas that you click on. This is how we get information about where you are on our site.

Session duration: Google defines the session duration as the time you spend on our site without leaving the site. If you have been inactive for 20 minutes, the session ends automatically.

Bounce rate: A bounce is when you only view one page on our website and then leave our website again.

Account creation: If you create an account or place an order on our website, Google Analytics collects this data.

IP address: The IP address is only shown in abbreviated form so that no clear assignment is possible.

Location: The country and your approximate location can be determined via the IP address. This process is also referred to as IP location determination.

Technical information: The technical information includes, among other things, your browser type, your Internet provider or your screen resolution.

Source of origin: Google Analytics or we are of course also interested in which website or which advertisement you came to our site from.

Other data are contact details, any ratings, playing media (e.g. if you play a video on our site), sharing content via social media or adding it
to your favorites.

The list does not claim to be complete and only serves as a general guide to data storage by Google Analytics.

How long and where is the data stored?

Google has distributed their servers all over the world. Most of the servers are located in America and consequently

your data is mostly stored on American servers. Here you can read exactly where the Google data centers are located:

https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/?hl=de

Your data is distributed across different physical media. This has the advantage that the data can be called up more quickly and is better
protected against manipulation. Every Google data center has emergency programs for your data. For example, if Google’s hardware fails or natural disasters paralyze servers,

the risk of a service interruption at Google remains low.

The retention period of the data depends on the properties used. When using the newer Google Analytics 4 properties, the retention period
for your user data is fixed at 14 months. For other so-called event data, we have the option of choosing a retention period of 2 months or 14 months.

With Universal Analytics properties, Google Analytics has a standardized retention period of 26 months for your user data. Then your user
data will be deleted.

However, we have the option of choosing the retention period for user data ourselves. We have five options available for this:

Deletion after 14 months
Deletion after 26 months
Deletion after 38 months
Deletion after 50 months

No automatic deletion There is also the option that data will only be deleted if you no longer visit our website within the period we have
chosen. In this case, the retention period will be reset each time you visit our website again within the specified period.

When the specified period has expired, the data will be deleted once a month. This retention period applies to your data associated with
cookies, user recognition and advertising IDs (e.g. cookies from the DoubleClick domain). Report results are based on aggregated data
and are stored independently of user data. Aggregated data is a merging of individual data into a larger unit.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage? Under European Union data protection law, you have the right to access, update, delete
or restrict your data. You can prevent Google Analytics from using your data by using the browser add-on to disable Google Analytics
JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, dc.js). You can download and install the browser add-on from https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. Please note that this add-on only disables data collectionby Google Analytics.

If you generally want to deactivate, delete or manage cookies (regardless of Google Analytics), there are separate instructions for each browser:

Chrome: Delete, enable and manage cookies in Chrome
Safari: Managing Cookies and Website Data with Safari
Firefox: Clear cookies to remove data websites have placed on your computer
Internet Explorer: Delete and manage cookies
Microsoft Edge: Deleting and managing cookies
Please note that when using this tool, your data may also be stored and processed outside the EU.
Most third countries (including the USA) are not considered

secure under current European data protection law. Data may not simply be transferred to unsafe third countries, stored there and processed unless there are suitable guarantees (such as EU standard contractual clauses) between us and the non-European service provider.

legal basis The use of Google Analytics requires your consent, which we have obtained with our cookie popup. According to Article 6
Paragraph 1 lit.

In addition to consent, there is a legitimate interest on our part in analyzing the behavior of website visitors and thus improving our offer
technically and economically. With the help of Google Analytics, we can identify errors on the website, identify attacks and improve profitability. The legal basis for this is

Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR (legitimate interests). However, we only use Google Analytics if you have given your consent.

We would like to point out that, according to the European Court of Justice, there is currently no adequate level of protection for data transfer to the USA.

The data processing is essentially done by Google. This can mean that data may not be processed and stored anonymously. In addition, US government authorities may have access to individual data. It may also happen that this data is linked to data from other Google services
where you have a user account.

We hope we were able to give you an understanding of the most important information about data processing by Google Analytics. If you want
to learn more about the tracking service, we recommend these two links:

Why do we use a cookie management tool?

Our goal is to offer you the best possible transparency in the area of data protection. We are also legally obliged to do so. We want to inform you as well

as possible about all tools and all cookies that can store and process data from you. It is also your right to decide which cookies you accept and which you

do not. In order to grant you this right, we first need to know exactly which cookies landed on our website in the first place. Thanks to a cookie management

tool, which regularly scans the website for all existing cookies, we know about all cookies and can provide you with information about them in accordance

with the GDPR. You can then accept or reject cookies via the consent system.

 

Which data are processed?

As part of our cookie management tool, you can manage each individual cookie yourself and have complete control over the storage and processing of your

data. The declaration of your consent will be saved so that we do not have to ask you each time you visit our website and we can also prove your consent if

required by law. This is stored either in an opt-in cookie or on a server. Depending on the provider of the cookie management tool, the storage period of

your cookie consent varies. This data (e.g. pseudonymous user ID, time of consent, detailed information on the cookie categories or tools, browser, device

information) is usually stored for up to two years.

 

Duration of data processing

We will inform you below about the duration of data processing if we have further information on this. In general, we only process personal data for as long

as is absolutely necessary for the provision of our services and products. Data stored in cookies are stored for different lengths of time. Some cookies are

already deleted after leaving the website, others can be stored in your browser for several years. The exact duration of the data processing depends on the

tool used, in most cases you should be prepared for a storage period of several years. In the respective data protection declarations of the individual

providers you will usually receive precise information about the duration of the data processing.

 

Right to object

You also have the right and the opportunity to revoke your consent to the use of cookies at any time. This works either via our cookie management tool or via

other opt-out functions. For example, you can also prevent data collection by cookies by managing, deactivating or deleting the cookies in your browser.

Information on special cookie management tools, if available, can be found in the following sections.

 

legal basis

If you agree to cookies, your personal data will be processed and stored via these cookies. If we are allowed to use cookies with your consent

(Article 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR), this consent is also the legal basis for the use of cookies or the processing of your data. In order to be able to manage the

consent to cookies and to enable you to give your consent, a cookie consent management platform software is used. The use of this software enables us

to operate the website in an efficient, legally compliant manner, which represents a legitimate interest (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR).

What is YouTube?

We have embedded YouTube videos on our website. This allows us to present you with interesting videos directly on our site. YouTube is a video portal that

has been a subsidiary of Google since 2006. The video portal is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If you call up a page

on our website that has an embedded YouTube video, your browser automatically connects to the YouTube or Google servers. Various data are transmitted

(depending on the settings). Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all data processing in Europe. In the

following we would like to explain to you in more detail which data is processed, why we have integrated YouTube videos and how you can manage or

delete your data. On YouTube, users can view videos, rate them, comment on them and upload them themselves free of charge. Over the past few years,

YouTube has become one of the most important social media channels worldwide. In order for us to be able to display videos on our website, YouTube

provides a code snippet that we have embedded on our site.

Why do we use YouTube videos on our website?

YouTube is the video platform with the most visitors and the best content. We strive to offer you the best

possible user experience on our website. And of course interesting videos should not be missing. With the help of our embedded videos, we provide you with

additional helpful content in addition to our texts and images. In addition, our website can be found more easily on the Google search engine thanks to the

embedded videos. Even if we place advertisements via Google Ads, thanks to the data collected, Google can really only show these advertisements to people

who are interested in our offers.

Which data is stored by YouTube?

As soon as you visit one of our pages that has a YouTube video installed, YouTube sets at least one cookie that stores your

IP address and our URL. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can mostly use cookies to associate your interactions on our website with your

profile. This includes data such as session duration, bounce rate, approximate location, technical information such as browser type, screen resolution or your

Internet provider. Other data can be contact details, any ratings, sharing content via social media or adding it to your favorites on YouTube.

If you are not signed into a Google account or a Youtube account, Google stores data with a unique identifier associated with your device, browser or app.

For example, your preferred language setting is retained. But a lot of interaction data cannot be saved because fewer cookies are set.

In the following list we show cookies that were set in a test in the browser. On the one hand, we show cookies that are set without a registered YouTube

account. On the other hand, we show cookies that are set with a logged-in account. The list cannot claim to be complete because the user data always

depends on the interactions on YouTube.

How long and where is the data stored?

The data that YouTube receives from you and processes is stored on the Google servers. Most of these servers are located in America. At https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/?hl=de you can see exactly where the Google data centers are located. Your data is distributed on the servers. This means that the data can be called up more quickly and is better protected against manipulation. Google stores the collected data for different lengths of time. You can delete some data at any time, others are automatically deleted after a limited period of time and others are stored by Google for a longer period of time. Some data (such as My Activity items, photos or documents, products) stored in your Google Account will remain stored until you delete it. Even if you’re not signed into a Google Account, you can delete some data associated with your device, browser, or app.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage? In principle, you can delete data in the Google account manually. With the automatic deletion of location and activity data introduced in 2019, information is stored for either 3 or 18 months and then deleted, depending on your decision. Regardless of whether you have a Google account or not, you can configure your browser in such a way that Google cookies are deleted or deactivated. Depending on which browser you use, this works in different ways. The following instructions show how to manage cookies in your browser:

Chrome: Delete, enable and manage cookies in Chrome

Safari: Managing Cookies and Website Data with Safari

Firefox: Clear cookies to remove data websites have placed on your computer

Internet Explorer: Delete and manage cookies

Microsoft Edge: Deleting and managing cookies

If you generally do not want any cookies, you can set up your browser so that it always informs you when a cookie is to be set. You can decide for each individual cookie whether you allow it or not. Since YouTube is a subsidiary of Google, there is a common privacy policy. If you want to find out more about how your data is handled, we recommend the data protection declaration at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

legal basis

If you have agreed that your data can be processed and stored by integrated YouTube elements, this consent is the legal basis for data processing (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR). In principle, your data will also be stored and processed on the basis of our legitimate interest (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR) in quick and effective communication with you or other customers and business partners. However, we only use the integrated YouTube elements if you have given your consent. YouTube also sets cookies in your browser to store data. We therefore recommend that you read our privacy statement on cookies carefully and consult the privacy statement or cookie policy of the relevant service provider.

Google Fonts Privacy Policy

Google Fonts Privacy Policy Summary

Affected: Visitors to the website

Purpose: Optimization of our service

Data processed: Data such as IP address and CSS and font requests More details can be found below in this data protection declaration.

Storage period: Font files are stored by Google for one year

Legal basis: Article 6 paragraph 1 letter a GDPR (consent), Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f GDPR (legitimate interests)

What are Google Fonts?

We use Google Fonts on our website. These are the “Google fonts” from Google Inc. The company Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow

Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services in Europe. You do not need to register or enter a password to use Google fonts. Furthermore,

no cookies are stored in your browser. The files (CSS, typefaces/fonts) are requested via the Google domains fonts.googleapis.com and fonts.gstatic.com.

According to Google, requests for CSS and fonts are completely separate from all other Google services. If you have a Google account, you don’t have to

worry about your Google account data being transmitted to Google while using Google Fonts. Google records the use of CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and

the fonts used and stores this data securely. How the data storage looks exactly, we will look at in detail. Google Fonts (formerly Google Web Fonts) is a

directory of over 800 fonts that Google makes available to its users for free. Many of these fonts are released under the SIL Open Font License, while others

have been released under the Apache License. Both are free software licenses.

Why do we use Google Fonts on our website?

With Google Fonts we can use fonts on our own website and do not have to upload them to our own server.

Google Fonts is an important component in keeping the quality of our website high. All Google fonts are automatically optimized for the web and this saves

data volume and is a great advantage especially for use with mobile devices. When you visit our site, the small file size ensures fast loading time.

Furthermore, Google Fonts are secure web fonts. Different image synthesis systems (rendering) in different browsers, operating systems and mobile devices

can lead to errors. Such errors can partially distort texts or entire websites. Thanks to the fast Content Delivery Network (CDN), there are no cross-platform

problems with Google Fonts. Google Fonts supports all major browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera) and works reliably on most

modern mobile operating systems, including Android 2.2+ and iOS 4.2+ (iPhone, iPad, iPod). So we use Google Fonts so that we can present our entire online

service as beautifully and uniformly as possible.

Which data is stored by Google?

When you visit our website, the fonts are reloaded via a Google server. This external call transmits data to the Google servers.

In this way, Google also recognizes that you or your IP address is visiting our website. The Google Fonts API was designed to reduce the use, storage and

collection of end-user data to what is necessary for proper font delivery. Incidentally, API stands for “Application Programming Interface” and serves, among

other things, as a data transmitter in the software sector. Google Fonts securely stores CSS and font requests on Google and is therefore protected. The

collected usage figures allow Google to determine how well the individual fonts are received. Google publishes the results on internal analysis pages, such as

Google Analytics. Google also uses data from its own web crawler to determine which websites use Google fonts. This data is published in the Google Fonts

BigQuery database. Entrepreneurs and developers use the Google web service BigQuery to examine and move large amounts of data. It should be noted,

however, that every Google Font request also automatically transmits information such as language settings, IP address, browser version, browser screen

resolution and browser name to the Google servers. Whether this data is also stored cannot be clearly determined or is not clearly communicated by Google.

How long and where is the data stored?

Google stores requests for CSS assets for one day on its servers, which are mainly located outside the EU. This enables us to use the fonts using a Google style sheet. A style sheet is a template that you can use to quickly and easily change the design or font of a website, for example. The font files are stored by Google for one year. Google is thus pursuing the goal of fundamentally improving the loading time of websites. When millions of websites refer to the same fonts, they are cached after the first visit and immediately reappear on all other websites visited later. Sometimes Google updates font files to reduce file size, increase language coverage, and improve design.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

The data that Google stores for a day or a year cannot simply be deleted. The data is automatically transmitted to Google when the page is accessed. In order to be able to delete this data prematurely, you must contact Google Support at https://support.google.com/?hl=de&tid=111765426. In this case, you only prevent data storage if you do not visit our site. Unlike other web fonts, Google allows us unlimited access to all fonts. So we have unlimited access to a sea of fonts and thus get the best out of our website. You can find more about Google Fonts and other questions at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq?tid=111765426. Although Google addresses data protection issues there, it does not contain really detailed information about data storage. It is relatively difficult to get really precise information about stored data from Google.

legal basis

If you have consented to the use of Google Fonts, the legal basis for the corresponding data processing is this consent. According to Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit.

We also have a legitimate interest in using Google Font to optimize our online service. The corresponding legal basis for this is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR (legitimate interests). However, we only use Google Fonts if you have given your consent.

You can also find out which data is generally collected by Google and what this data is used for
