Privacy policy

We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection has a particularly high priority for the management of No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG. A use of the internet pages of No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG is basically possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a person concerned wishes to use special services of our company via our website, it may become necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the basic data protection regulation and in compliance with the data protection regulations applicable to No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. By means of this data protection declaration, our company wishes to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, this data protection declaration informs affected persons about the rights to which they are entitled.

The No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the complete protection of personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

1. definitions

The privacy policy of No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG is based on the terminology used by the European legislator when the basic data protection regulation (DS-GVO) was issued. Our data protection declaration 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 terms used in advance.

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

a) personal data

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as “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, on-line identification, or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

(f) Pseudonymisation

Pseudonymisation 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 need for additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

(g) Controller or controller

Controller or data controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data.

However, authorities which may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation mandate under Union or national law shall not be considered as recipients.

(j) Third party

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

(k) Consent

Website: www.no-limit-custom.de

3. cookies

The internet pages of No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG use cookies. Cookies are text files which are stored on a computer system via an internet browser.

Numerous internet pages and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called Cookie-ID. A Cookie-ID is a unique identification of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters that can be used to assign Internet pages and servers to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the Internet pages and servers visited to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified by means of the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the setting of cookies.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimised in the interest of the user. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to enter his or her access data each time he or she visits the website, because this is done by the website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in the online shop. The online shop uses a cookie to remember the articles that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, it is possible that not all functions of our website can be fully used.

4. collection of general data and information

The website of No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG website collects a number of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a person concerned or by an automated system. These general data and information are stored in the log files of the server. The (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet Protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information which serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information, No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. This information is rather required to (1) deliver the contents of our website correctly, (2) optimize the contents of our website as well as the advertising for it, (3) to ensure the permanent operability of our information technology systems and the technology of our website as well as (4) to provide law enforcement agencies in the case of a cyber attack the information necessary for prosecution. This anonymously collected data and information is used by No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG therefore evaluates this anonymously collected data and information statistically and also with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company, in order to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned.

5. registration on our website

The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the controller by providing personal data. The personal data transmitted to the controller is determined by the input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored solely for internal use by the data controller and for his or her own purposes. The controller may arrange for the personal data to be transferred to one or more processors, such as a parcel service provider, which shall also use the personal data exclusively for internal use attributable to the controller.

Furthermore, by registering on the controller’s website, the IP address assigned to the data subject by the Internet Service Provider (ISP), the date and time of registration are stored. The storage of this data is carried out against the background that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services and, if necessary, to enable the clarification of criminal offences committed. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary to protect the person responsible for processing. As a matter of principle, this data will not be passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to do so or the passing on of the data serves criminal prosecution.

The registration of the data subject under voluntary disclosure of personal data serves the purpose of the data controller to offer the data subject content or services which, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to modify the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have them completely deleted from the data stock of the data controller.

The data controller shall at any time upon request provide any data subject with information as to which personal data relating to the data subject are stored. Furthermore, the controller shall correct or delete personal data at the request or notification of the data subject, unless this is contrary to any legal obligation to retain data. The entire staff of the data controller is available to the data subject as contact persons in this context.

6. possibility of contact via the website

The website of No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG contains, due to legal regulations, information that allows a quick electronic contact to our company as well as a direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the data controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject is automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted by a data subject to the controller on a voluntary basis are stored for the purposes of processing or for contacting the data subject. Such personal data shall not be disclosed to third parties.

7. routine erasure and blocking of personal data

The controller shall process and store personal data relating to the data subject only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or where provided for by the European legislator or other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.

If the purpose of storage ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directives and Regulations Giver or any other competent legislator expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with the statutory provisions.

8. rights of the data subject

(a) Right to confirmation

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of rectification, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.

(d) Right of cancellation (right to be forgotten)

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain from the controller the immediate erasure of personal data relating to him/her, if one of the following reasons applies and provided that the processing is not necessary:

The personal data have been collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which they are no longer necessary.
The data subject withdraws the consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the DPA or Article 9(2)(a) of the DPA and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
The data subject lodges an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) DPA and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or the data subject lodges an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (2) DPA.
The personal data were processed unlawfully.
The deletion of the personal data is necessary to comply with a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject.
The personal data was collected in relation to information society services offered in accordance with Article 8 (1) of the DS-GVO.
If one of the above reasons applies and a data subject requests the deletion of personal data held by No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG, the data subject may contact an employee of the data controller at any time to arrange for the deletion of personal data stored by No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. The employee of No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG will ensure that the request for deletion is complied with immediately.

If the personal data has been deleted by No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG and our company is obliged to delete the personal data as the responsible party in accordance with Art. 17 Paragraph 1 DS-GVO, No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG shall take reasonable measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform other data controllers who process the published personal data that the data subject has requested that these other data controllers delete all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data, unless the processing is necessary. The employee of No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG will arrange for the necessary in individual cases.

e) Right to limitation of processing

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain from the controller the restriction of processing if one of the following conditions is met:

the accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period of time sufficient to enable the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data
The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses to have the personal data deleted and instead requests the restriction of the use of the personal data.
The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data subject needs them in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
The data subject has lodged an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) of the DPA and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh those of the data subject.
If one of the above-mentioned conditions is met and a data subject requests the restriction of personal data held by No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG, the data subject may at any time contact an employee of the data controller. The employee of No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG will arrange for the restriction of the processing.

(f) Right to data portability

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to receive the personal data concerning him/her which have been made available to a controller by the data subject in a structured, common and machine-readable format. He or she also has the right to have this data communicated to another controller without hindrance by the controller to whom the personal data has been made available, provided that the processing is based on the consent pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 letter a DPA or Article 9 paragraph 2 letter a DPA or on a contract pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 letter b DPA and that the processing is carried out by means of automated procedures, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

Furthermore, when exercising their right to data transfer pursuant to Art. 20 Para. 1 DPA, the data subject has the right to request that personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.

In order to assert the right to data transfer, the person concerned can contact an employee of No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG at any time.

g) Right to object

Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European legislator, to object at any time, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her carried out pursuant to Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DPA. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG no longer processes personal data in the event of an objection, unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG processes personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such marketing. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG to the processing for the purpose of direct advertising, No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

In addition, the data subject has the right, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to object to the processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out by No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89 Paragraph 1 of the DS-GVO, unless such processing is necessary for the fulfilment of a task in the public interest.

In order to exercise the right of objection, the data subject may contact any employee of No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG or any other employee. The data subject is also free to exercise his/her right of objection in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures involving technical specifications.

(h) Automated case-by-case decisions including profiling

Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European legislator, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him/her or significantly affects him/her in a similar way, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is authorised by Union or national legislation to which the controller is subject and such legislation provides for adequate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) is made with the explicit consent of the data subject.

Where the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller or (2) is taken with the express consent of the data subject, No Limit Custom GmbH & Co. KG shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and the legitimate interests of the data subject, which shall include at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person from the person responsible, to express its own position and to challenge the decision.

If the data subject wishes to exercise rights relating to automated decisions, he or she may at any time consult a member of the controller’s staff.

(i) Right to withdraw consent for data protection

Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation Giver, to revoke his or her consent to the processing of personal data at any time.

If the data subject wishes to exercise his or her right to withdraw consent, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.

9. privacy policy on the use and application of Facebook

The data controller has integrated components of the company Facebook on this website. Facebook is a social network.

A social network is a social meeting place operated on the Internet, an online community that generally allows users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for exchanging opinions and experiences or it can enable the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Facebook enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friend requests, among other things.

The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc. 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. The person responsible for processing personal data if a data subject lives outside the USA or Canada is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Each time the data controller calls up one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Facebook component to download a display of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook. A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins is available at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=de_DE. As part of this technical process, Facebook is informed which specific page of our website is visited by the person concerned.

If the person concerned is logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes which specific subpage of our website the person concerned is visiting each time the person concerned calls up our website and for the entire duration of their stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the person concerned. If the person concerned clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the “Like” button, or if the person concerned makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the person concerned and stores this personal data.

Facebook receives information via the Facebook component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the same time when he or she accesses our website; this occurs regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Facebook, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her Facebook account before accessing our website.

The data policy published by Facebook, which is available at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains which setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the person concerned. In addition, various applications are available that make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Such applications can be used by the data subject to suppress data transfer to Facebook.

10. privacy policy on the use of Google AdSense

The person responsible for processing has integrated Google AdSense on this website. Google AdSense is an online service that enables the placement of advertising on third party sites. Google AdSense is based on an algorithm which selects the advertisements displayed on third party sites according to the content of the respective third party site. Google AdSense allows an interest-related targeting of the internet user, which is implemented by generating individual user profiles.

The operating company of the Google AdSense component is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

The purpose of the Google AdSense component is the integration of advertisements on our website. Google AdSense sets a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are, has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Alphabet Inc. is able to analyze the use of our website. Each time the data controller accesses one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google AdSense component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data subject’s information technology system is automatically prompted by the respective Google AdSense component to transmit data to Alphabet Inc. for the purposes of online advertising and the billing of commissions. As part of this technical process, Alphabet Inc. obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which is used by Alphabet Inc. among other things to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission settlements.

The person concerned can prevent cookies from being set by our website, as described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used, thereby permanently opposing the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Alphabet Inc. from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Alphabet Inc. can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Google AdSense also uses so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a thumbnail graphic that is embedded in Internet pages to enable log file recording and log file analysis, which enables statistical evaluation. Alphabet Inc. can use the embedded pixel-code to identify whether and when an Internet page was opened by an affected person and which links were clicked on by the affected person. Counting pixels are used, among other things, to evaluate the flow of visitors to a website.

Through Google AdSense, personal data and information, which includes the IP address and is necessary for the collection and billing of the displayed advertisements, is transferred to Alphabet Inc. in the United States of America. This personal data is stored and processed in the United States of America. Alphabet Inc. may pass on this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.

Google AdSense is explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.de/intl/de/adsense/start/.

11. privacy policy on the use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)

The person responsible for processing has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data on which website a person concerned came to a website from (so-called referrers), which sub-pages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and to analyse the cost-benefit of internet advertising.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

The data controller uses the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp” for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is shortened and anonymised by Google if the access to our Internet pages is from a member state of the European Union or from another state that is a party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website in order to compile online reports for us which show the activities on our website and to provide further services in connection with the use of our website.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is able to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, is called up, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Google receives knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission settlements.

By means of the cookie, personal information such as the access time, the place from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned is stored. Each time our website is visited, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted 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 through the technical process to third parties.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in 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 the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the data subject has the option of objecting to the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and relating to the use of this website and to the processing of this data by Google and to prevent such processing. To do this, the person concerned must download and install a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google as a contradiction. If the data subject’s information technology system is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later date, the data subject must reinstall the Browser Add-On in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the person concerned or another person within his or her sphere of control, the browser add-on may be reinstalled or reactivated.

Further information and Google’s applicable privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail at this link https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.

12. privacy policy on the use of Google Remarketing

The data controller has integrated Google Remarketing services on this website. Google Remarketing is a function of Google AdWords that enables a company to display advertising 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 thus to display interest-relevant advertisements to the Internet user.

The operating company of the Google Remarketing services is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

The purpose of Google Remarketing is the display of interest-relevant advertising. Google Remarketing enables us to display advertisements via the Google advertising network or to have them displayed on other Internet pages which are tailored to the individual needs and interests of Internet users.

Google Remarketing places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is able to recognise the visitor to our website if he or she subsequently calls up websites that are also members of the Google advertising network. Each time a website on which the Google Remarketing service has been integrated is accessed, the Internet browser of the person concerned automatically identifies itself to Google. In the course of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address or the surfing behaviour of the user, which Google uses, among other things, to display interest-relevant advertising.

By means of the cookie, personal information, such as the websites visited by the person concerned, is stored. Whenever a user visits our website, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted 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 person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in 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 the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the person concerned has the possibility to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do so, the person concerned must call up the link www.google.de/settings/ads from each of the Internet browsers he or she uses and make the desired settings there.

Further information and Google’s applicable privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

13. privacy policy on the use and deployment of Google+

The data controller has integrated the Google+ button as a component on this website. Google+ is a so-called social network. A social network is a social meeting place operated on the Internet, an online community that generally allows users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or enables the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Google+ enables social network users to create private profiles, upload photos, and network through friend requests, among other things.

The operating company of Google+ is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

Each time the data subject accesses one of the individual pages of this website operated by the data controller and on which a Google+ button has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Google+ button to download a representation of the corresponding Google+ button from Google. As part of this technical process, Google is informed which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject. More detailed information about Google+ is available at https://developers.google.com/+/.

If the data subject is logged on to Google+ at the same time, Google recognizes which specific subpage of our website the data subject is visiting each time the data subject calls up our website and for the entire duration of the respective visit to our website. This information is collected by the Google+ button and assigned by Google to the respective Google+ account of the person concerned.

If the data subject clicks on one of the Google+ buttons integrated on our website and thus submits a Google+1 recommendation, Google will assign this information to the data subject’s personal Google+ user account and store this personal data. Google will store the data subject’s Google+1 recommendation and make it publicly available in accordance with the terms and conditions accepted by the data subject. A Google+1 recommendation made by the data subject on this website will subsequently be stored and processed together with other personal data, such as the name of the Google+1 account used by the data subject and the photo stored in that account, in other Google services, such as Google search engine results, the data subject’s Google Account or other places, such as on websites or in connection with advertisements. Furthermore, Google is able to link the visit to this website with other personal data stored by Google. Google also records this personal information for the purpose of improving or optimizing the various services provided by Google.

Google will always receive information via the Google+ button that the person concerned has visited our website if the person concerned is logged in to Google+ at the same time as accessing our website; this takes place regardless of whether the person concerned clicks on the Google+ button or not.

If the data subject does not want his/her personal data to be transferred to Google, he/she can prevent such transfer by logging out of his/her Google+ account before visiting our website.

14. privacy policy on the use of Google AdWords

The data controller has integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an internet advertising service that allows advertisers to display ads in Google’s search engine results as well as in the Google advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to set pre-defined keywords that will display an ad in Google’s search engine results only when the user uses the search engine to retrieve a keyword-related search result. In the Google advertising network, the ads are distributed to topic-relevant web pages by means of an automatic algorithm and in accordance with the previously defined keywords.

The operating company of the Google AdWords services is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our website by displaying advertisements relevant to our interests on the websites of third party companies and in the search engine results of the Google search engine and by displaying third-party advertisements on our website.

If a person concerned reaches our website via a Google advertisement, a so-called conversion cookie is stored on the information technology system of the person concerned by Google. What cookies are has already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and does not serve to identify the data subject. If the cookie has not expired, the conversion cookie is used to determine whether certain sub-pages, such as the shopping cart from an online shop system, have been accessed on our website. The conversion cookie enables us and Google to track whether a person who has reached our website via an AdWords ad generated sales, i.e. whether he or she has completed or abandoned a purchase.

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to create 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 Google AdWords advertisers receive any information from Google that could be used to identify the person concerned.

The conversion cookie is used to store personal information, such as the websites visited by the person concerned. Whenever a person visits our website, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted 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 person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in 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 the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the data subject has the opportunity to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do so, the person concerned must call up the link www.google.de/settings/ads from each of the Internet browsers he or she uses and make the desired settings there.

24. legal basis of the processing

Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations for 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 necessary for the supply of goods or provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which makes it necessary to process personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were to be injured and his or her name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be disclosed to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this case the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO.
Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject prevail. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been 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 (Recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).

 

25. legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

26 Duration for which personal data are stored

The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.

27. legal or contractual provisions on the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of not providing the data

We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner).
Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him/her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded.
Before the person concerned makes personal data available, the person concerned must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the data subject 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 would be if the personal data were not provided.

28. existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we avoid automatic decision making or profiling.
