(1)Within the scope of our online offer, we act on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of § 6, 1f) of the German Civil  Code 7 DSGVO) content or service offers from third parties in order to integrate their content and services, such as videos or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as “content”). This always presupposes that the third-party providers of this content perceive the IP address of the user, since they would not be able to send the content to their browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. We make every effort to use only those contents whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the contents. Third party providers may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. Pixel tags can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and may contain, among other things, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring web pages, visit times and other information about the use of our online offering, as well as may be linked to such information from other sources.

7. Right of objection

You have the right, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of your personal data on the basis of § 6, 1e) or f) DSGVO; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

We will then no longer process the personal data concerning you unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

9. Automated decision in individual cases including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to any decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, that has any legal effect on you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision

(2) is permitted by the laws of the Union or of the Member States to which we are subject and those laws contain adequate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or

§12 Facebook Analytics and Facebook Ads

On our website we use the remarketing function “Custom Audiences” of Facebook Inc. (1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA; “Facebook”) and the Facebook tracking pixel.

Processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO for the legitimate interest in the above-mentioned purpose.
For reasons arising from your particular situation, you have the right at any time to object to this processing of your personal data based on Art. 6 (1) f DSGVO.
