8. Data protection provisions about the application and use of PIWIK and Google Analytics
8.1 Data protection provisions about the application and use of PIWIK
On this website, the controller has integrated the PIWIK component. PIWIK is an open source software tool for web analysis. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis tool collects, among other things, data about the website from which a data subject came to a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.
The software is operated on the server of the controller, the data protection sensitive log files are stored exclusively on this server.
The purpose of the PIWIK component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. The controller uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of this website in order to compile online reports that show the activities on our website.
PIWIK sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, we are enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this website, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the PIWIK component to transmit data to our server for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, we gain knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves us, among other things, to trace the origin of the visitors and clicks.
By means of the cookie, personal information, such as the access time, the place from which access was made and the frequency of visits to our website are stored. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to our server. This personal data is stored by us. We do not pass on this personal data to third parties.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent PIWIK from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by PIWIK can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs.
Furthermore, the data subject has the option of objecting to and preventing the collection of data generated by PIWIK relating to the use of this website. For this purpose, the data subject must set an opt-out cookie under the link http://piwik.org/docs/privacy/. Will the information technology
System of the data subject deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later date, the data subject must again set an opt-out cookie under http://piwik.org/docs/privacy/.
With the setting of the opt-out cookie, however, there is the possibility that the Internet pages of the controller are no longer fully usable for the data subject.
Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of PIWIK can be retrieved under http://piwik.org/docs/privacy/.

9. Legal basis of processing
Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in 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 that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Article 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and
his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would then have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this case, the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR.
Ultimately, processing operations based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that 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 a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not 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 GDPR).
10. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party
Is the processing of personal data based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.
11. Duration for which the personal data will be stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that they are no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.
12. Legal or contractual provisions for 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 non-provision
We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.B. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.B. 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 personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact our data protection officer. Our data protection officer clarifies to 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 consequences the non-provision of the personal data would have.
13. Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
