In accordance with Art. 13 GDPR, I will inform you of the legal basis for my data processing. For users from the scope of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), i.e. the EU and the EEC, the following applies, unless the legal basis is mentioned in the data protection declaration:

Cooperation with contract processors, jointly responsible persons and third parties
If I disclose data to other persons and companies (contract processors, jointly responsible persons or third parties) within the scope of my processing, transmit them to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this is only done on the basis of legal permission (e.g. if the data is transmitted to third parties, such as payment service providers to fulfill the contract), users have consented, a legal obligation provides for this or on the basis of my legitimate interests (e.g. when using agents, web hosts, etc.).
Transfers to third countries
Sofern ich Daten in einem Drittland (d.h. außerhalb der Europäischen Union (EU), des Europäischen Wirtschaftsraums (EWR) oder der Schweizer Eidgenossenschaft) verarbeite oder dies im Rahmen der Inanspruchnahme von Diensten Dritter oder Offenlegung, bzw. Übermittlung von Daten an andere Personen oder Unternehmen geschieht, erfolgt dies nur, wenn es zur Erfüllung meiner (vor)vertraglichen Pflichten, auf Grundlage eurer Einwilligung, aufgrund einer rechtlichen Verpflichtung oder auf Grundlage meines berechtigten Interessen geschieht. Vorbehaltlich ausdrücklicher Einwilligung oder vertraglich erforderlicher Übermittlung, verarbeite oder lasse ich die Daten nur in Drittländern mit einem anerkannten Datenschutzniveau, zu denen die unter dem “Privacy-Shield” zertifizierten US-Verarbeiter gehören oder auf Grundlage besonderer Garantien, wie z.B. vertraglicher Verpflichtung durch sogenannte Standardschutzklauseln der EU-Kommission, dem Vorliegen von Zertifizierungen oder verbindlichen internen Datenschutzvorschriften verarbeiten (Art. 44 bis 49 DSGVO, information page of the EU Commission).

You can object to the future processing of the data concerning you at any time in accordance with the legal requirements. The objection can in particular be made against processing for direct marketing purposes.
Cookies and right to object to direct mail
“Cookies” are small files that are stored on the users’ computers. Various information can be stored within the cookies. A cookie is primarily used to store information about a user (or the device on which the cookie is stored) during or after their visit to an online offer. Temporary cookies, or “session cookies” or “transient cookies”, are cookies that are deleted after a user leaves an online offer and closes his browser. The contents of a shopping cart in an online shop or a login status can be saved in such a cookie. Cookies are referred to as “permanent” or “persistent” and remain stored even after the browser is closed. For example, the login status can be saved if users visit it after several days. The interests of users can also be stored in such a cookie, which are used for range measurement or marketing purposes. “Third-party cookies” are cookies that are offered by providers other than the person responsible for operating the online offer (otherwise, if it is only their cookies, they are referred to as “first-party cookies”).
If users do not want cookies to be stored on their computer, they are asked to deactivate the corresponding option in the system settings of their browser. Saved cookies can be deleted in the system settings of the browser. The exclusion of cookies can lead to functional restrictions of this online offer.
Deletion of data
The data processed by me will be deleted or restricted in their processing in accordance with the legal requirements. Unless expressly stated in this data protection declaration, the data stored by us will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for their intended purpose and the deletion does not conflict with any statutory retention requirements.
If the data are not deleted because they are required for other legally permissible purposes, their processing will be restricted. This means that the data are blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be kept for commercial or tax reasons.
Business related processing
Additionally I process
– Contract data (e.g., subject of the contract, term, customer category).
– Payment data (e.g., bank details, payment history)
from my customers, prospects and business partners for the purpose of providing contractual services, service and customer care, marketing, advertising and market research.
Participation in affiliate partner programs
Within my online offer, I use customary tracking measures based on my legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer) in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f GDPR, insofar as these are necessary for the operation of the affiliate system. In the following I explain the technical background to the users.
The services offered by my contractual partners can also be advertised and linked on other websites (so-called affiliate links or after-buy systems, e.g. if links or third-party services are offered after a contract has been concluded). The operators of the respective websites receive a commission if users follow the affiliate links and then take advantage of the offers.
In summary, it is necessary for my online offer that I can track whether users who are interested in affiliate links and / or the offers available from us then take advantage of the offers at the instigation of the affiliate links or my online platform. For this purpose, the affiliate links and my offers are supplemented by certain values that can be part of the link or otherwise, e.g. in a cookie. The values include, in particular, the starting website (referrer), time, an online identifier for the operator of the website on which the affiliate link was located, an online identifier for the respective offer, an online identifier for the user, and tracking specific values such as advertising material ID, partner ID and categorizations.
The online user IDs used by me are pseudonymous values. This means that the online IDs themselves do not contain any personal data such as names or e-mail addresses. They only help me to determine whether the same user who clicked on an affiliate link or was interested in an offer through my online offer took up the offer, i.e. concluded a contract with the provider, for example. However, the online ID is personal to the extent that the partner company and I have the online ID together with other user data. This is the only way for the partner company to tell me whether the user has taken advantage of the offer and whether we can, for example, pay out the bonus.
Amazon affiliate program
On the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. GDPR), we are a participant in the Amazon EU partner program, which was designed to provide a medium for websites the placement of advertisements and links to Amazon.de advertising cost reimbursement can be earned (so-called affiliate system). That means, as an Amazon partner, we earn from qualified purchases.
Further information on the use of data by Amazon and the possibility of objection can be found in the company’s data protection declaration: https://www.amazon.de/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=201909010.
Note: Amazon and the Amazon logo are trademarks of Amazon.com, Inc. or one of its affiliates.
Comments and contributions
If users leave comments or other contributions, their IP addresses can be stored for 7 days on the basis of our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. This is done for our safety if someone leaves illegal content in comments and contributions (insults, prohibited political propaganda, etc.). In this case we can be prosecuted for the comment or contribution ourselves and are therefore interested in the identity of the author.
Furthermore, we reserve the right to process user information for the purpose of spam detection on the basis of our legitimate interests in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
The information about the person communicated in the context of the comments and contributions, any contact and website information as well as the content will be stored permanently by us until the user objects.
The follow-up comments can be subscribed to by users with their consent in accordance with Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR. The users receive a confirmation email to check whether they are the owner of the email address entered. Users can unsubscribe from ongoing comment subscriptions at any time. The confirmation email will contain information on the cancellation options. For the purpose of proving the consent of the user, we save the time of registration along with the IP address of the user and delete this information when users unsubscribe from the subscription.
You can cancel the receipt of our subscription at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. On the basis of our legitimate interests, we can save the e-mail addresses that have been deleted for up to three years before we delete them in order to be able to prove a previously given consent. The processing of this data is limited to the purpose of a possible defense against claims. An individual request for deletion is possible at any time, provided that the previous existence of consent is confirmed at the same time.
Akismet Anti-Spam Check
Our online offer uses the “Akismet” service offered by Automattic Inc., 60 29th Street # 343, San Francisco, CA 94110, USA. The use takes place on the basis of our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f) GDPR. With the help of this service, comments from real people are distinguished from spam comments. For this purpose, all comments are sent to a server in the USA, where they are analyzed and stored for four days for comparison purposes. If a comment has been classified as spam, the data will be saved beyond this period. This information includes the name entered, the email address, the IP address, the comment content, the referrer, information on the browser used and the computer system and the time of the entry.
Further information on the collection and use of data by Akismet can be found in Automattic’s data protection information: https://automattic.com/privacy/.
Users are welcome to use pseudonyms or refrain from entering their name or email address. You can completely prevent the transmission of the data by not using our comment system. That would be a shame, but unfortunately we don’t see any other alternatives that work just as effectively.
Bei der Kontaktaufnahme mit uns (z.B. per Kontaktformular, E-Mail, Telefon oder via sozialer Medien) werden die Angaben des Nutzers zur Bearbeitung der Kontaktanfrage und deren Abwicklung gem. Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. b. (im Rahmen vertraglicher-/vorvertraglicher Beziehungen), Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f. (andere Anfragen) DSGVO verarbeitet.. Die Angaben der Nutzer können in einem Customer-Relationship-Management System (“CRM System”) oder vergleichbarer Anfragenorganisation gespeichert werden.
We delete the inquiries if they are no longer required. We review the requirement every two years; The statutory archiving obligations also apply.
Hosting and e-mailing
The hosting services we use serve to provide the following services: Infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, sending e-mails, security services and technical maintenance services that we use for the purpose of operating this online offer.
We, or our hosting provider, process inventory data, contact data, content data, contract data, usage data, meta and communication data from customers, interested parties and visitors to this online offer based on our legitimate interests in an efficient and secure provision of this online offer in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f GDPR in conjunction with Art. 28 GDPR (conclusion of an order processing contract).
Collection of access data and log files
We, or our hosting provider, collect data on every access to the server on which this service is located (so-called server log files) on the basis of our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. The access data includes the name of the accessed website, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.
For security reasons (e.g. to investigate acts of abuse or fraud), log file information is stored for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. Data, the further storage of which is necessary for evidence purposes, are excluded from deletion until the respective incident has been finally clarified.
Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online offer by users, to compile reports on the activities within this online offer and to provide us with other services related to the use of this online offer and the internet. In doing so, pseudonymous user profiles can be created from the processed data.
We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization. This means that the IP address of the user is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is only transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases.
The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser will not be merged with other Google data. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; Users can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to their use of the online offer and from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de..
As an alternative to the browser add-on or within browsers on mobile devices, please click [google_analytics_optout] here Deactivate Google Analytics [/ google_analytics_optout] in order to prevent future collection by Google Analytics on this website: Analytics opt-out. An opt-out cookie will be stored on your device. If you delete your cookies, you will have to click this link again.
If we ask the user for consent (e.g. in the context of a cookie consent), the legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. GDPR. Otherwise, the personal data of the users are processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f. GDPR).
As far as data is processed in the USA, we point out that Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thereby guarantees to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).
The personal data of users are deleted or anonymized after 2 months.
Google Universal Analytics
We use Google Analytics in the form of “Universal Analytics“. “Universal Analytics” refers to a process by Google Analytics in which the user analysis is carried out on the basis of a pseudonymous user ID and a pseudonymous profile of the user is created with information from the use of different devices (so-called “cross-device tracking”) .
Online presence in social media
We maintain an online presence within social networks and platforms in order to be able to communicate with the customers, interested parties and users active there and to inform them about our services.
We would like to point out that user data can be processed outside of the European Union. This can result in risks for the user because, for example, the enforcement of user rights could be made more difficult. With regard to US providers who are certified under the Privacy Shield, we would like to point out that they undertake to comply with the data protection standards of the EU.
In addition, user data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, user profiles can be created from user behavior and the resulting interests of the user. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the user’s computer, in which the usage behavior and the interests of the user are stored. Furthermore, data can be stored in the usage profiles regardless of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them).
The processing of the personal data of the users takes place on the basis of our legitimate interests in an effective information of the users and communication with the users according to Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f. GDPR. If the users are asked by the respective providers of the platforms for their consent to the data processing described above, the legal basis for processing is Article 6 (1) (a), Article 7 GDPR.
For a detailed description of the respective processing and the possibilities of objection (opt-out), we refer to the following linked information from the provider.
Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be most effectively asserted with the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can take appropriate measures and provide information. If you still need help, you can contact us.

Use of Facebook social plugins
Wir nutzen auf Grundlage unserer berechtigten Interessen (d.h. Interesse an der Analyse, Optimierung und wirtschaftlichem Betrieb unseres Onlineangebotes im Sinne des Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f. DSGVO) Social Plugins (“Plugins”) des sozialen Netzwerkes facebook.com, welches von der Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Irland betrieben wird (“Facebook”).
This can include, for example, content such as images, videos or texts and buttons with which users can share content from this online offer within Facebook. The list and the appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection lawhttps://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).
When a user calls up a function of this online offer that contains such a plugin, his device establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted from Facebook directly to the user’s device, which integrates it into the online offer. In doing so, user profiles can be created from the processed data. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs users according to our level of knowledge.
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the online offer. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to their Facebook account. When users interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the Like button or making a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your device to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out his IP address and save it.
According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is saved in Germany. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the related rights and setting options to protect the privacy of users can be found in Facebook’s data protection information: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him via this online offer and link it to his member data stored on Facebook, he must log out of Facebook before using our online offer and delete his cookies. Further settings and contradictions to the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads or via the US website https://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU site https://www.youronlinechoices.com/. The settings are platform-independent, i.e. they are adopted for all devices such as desktop computers or mobile devices.

Shariff sharing functions
Wir verwenden die datenschutzsicheren „Shariff“-Schaltflächen. „Shariff“ wurde entwickelt, um mehr Privatsphäre im Netz zu ermöglichen und die üblichen “Share”-Buttons der sozialen Netzwerke zu ersetzen. Dabei stellt nicht der Browser der Nutzer, sondern der Server auf dem sich dieses Onlineangebot befindet, eine Verbindung mit dem Server der jeweiligen Social-Media-Plattformen her und fragt z.B. die Anzahl von Likes, etc. ab. Der Nutzer bleibt hierbei anonym. Mehr Informationen zum Shariff-Projekt finden Sie bei den Entwicklern von dem Magazin c’t: www.ct.de.
Cookies and reports on access figures
I use "session cookies" of VG Wort, Munich, to measure accesses to texts in order to record the copy probability. Session cookies are small information units that a provider stores in the RAM of the visitor's computer. A randomly generated unique identification number, a so-called session ID, is stored in a session cookie. In addition, a cookie contains information about its origin and the storage period. Session cookies cannot store any other data. These measurements are performed by INFOnline GmbH in accordance with the Scalable Central Measurement Method (SZM). They help to determine the copy probability of individual texts for the purpose of compensating authors and publishers for legal claims. I do not collect personal data via cookies.
A use of my offers is also possible without cookies. Most browsers are set to automatically accept cookies. However, you can disable the storage of cookies or set your browser to notify you when cookies are sent.
Use of the Scalable Central Measurement Procedure
My website and my mobile Web offering use the "Scalable Central Measurement Method" (SZM) from INFOnline GmbH (https://www.infonline.de) to determine statistical characteristic values for determining the copy probability of texts.
Anonymous measurement values are collected in the process. The access count measurement alternatively uses a session cookie or a signature created from various automatically transmitted information from your browser to recognize computer systems. IP addresses are only processed in anonymized form.
The procedure was developed in compliance with data protection. The sole aim of the procedure is to determine the copying probability of individual texts.
At no time are individual users identified. Your identity always remains protected. You will not receive any advertising via the system.
