In the case of processing operations which are not covered by any or more of the above-mentioned legal bases, the processing takes place if it is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest and does not outweigh your interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms due to a comprehensive balancing of interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). In particular, it is in our legitimate interest to conduct our business for the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.
Our legitimate interest in informing you about our company and advertised positions and in constantly improving our website and thereby also increasing our turnover is the legal basis for processing for direct marketing (own advertising and third-party advertising) and web/app analysis. For details of web analytics services, see paragraph 9.
Another legitimate interest is the functionality of company processes, which are used for internal administrative purposes. You can object to the processing on the basis of a legitimate interest at any time (see Section 13.). In the event that the data are processed for a purpose other than that stated in the data collection, a compatibility check shall be carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 4 GDPR. Further processing is only permitted if the original purpose is compatible with the new purpose or is permitted on the basis of a separate legal basis. Recognised compatible purposes include, but are not limited to, the assertion, exercise or defence of civil law claims unless the data subject has an overriding interest. In this case we will inform you about the change of purpose. If the new purpose is not compatible with the purpose stated in the survey, a new survey will be carried out on the basis of a new legal basis. Here, too, we will inform you of the change of purpose.
We have integrated Google Analytics (with anonymisation function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data on the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data on which website a data subject came to a website from (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 cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising. The Google Analytics component is operated by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
We use the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp” for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, Google shortens and anonymizes the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject when accessing our websites from a member state of the European Union or from another state 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. Google uses the data and information collected to evaluate the use of our website, among other things, to compile online reports for us that show the activities on our websites and to provide other services in connection with the use of our website.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the device of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of our website. Each time you visit one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by us and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the device of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Google, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission statements.
Cookies are used to store personal information, such as access time, the location from which access came and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject. Every time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, 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 disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as already described above, by means of an appropriate 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 Google from placing a cookie on the device of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
Google Analytics will be explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.com/intl/de_en/analytics/.
