- Data privacy regulations for the implementation and use of Google-ad words
The responsible person for processing data has integrated Google-ad words on this webpage. Google-ad words is a service for internet advertising, which allows advertisers to operate adverts both in searching engines by Google as well as in Google advertising networks. Google-ad words allows advertisers to determine pre-selected key words, by which an advert is only shown in Google’s search engines when the user triggers a key word relevant search result via the searching engine. In the Google advertising network, adverts are divided between webpages relevant to certain topics via automated algorithms and under consideration of prior selected keywords.
Operating company of the services of Google AdWords is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The purpose of Google AdWords is the application of my website via the masking of interest relevant advertising on the websites of third companies and on the search engine results of the searching engine Google and the masking of foreign advertising on my website.
Reaches a concerned person my website via a Google advertisement, a so-called conversion-cookie will be placed by Google on the information technological system of the concerned person. Earlier, it is explained what cookies are. A conversion cookie looses validation after a period of 30 days and does not fulfill the purpose of identifying a person. Via the conversion cookie, preconditioned the cookie is not out of date yet, it is tested if certain sub-pages can be triggered on my webpage, for example the shopping basket of an online shop system. With the conversion cookie, me and Google can follow if a concerned person, who has reached my webpage via an AdWords advertisement, has generated sales, in other words, if a person has bought articles or canceled the shopping process.
The collected data and information via the use of conversion-cookies are used by Google in order to generate visitor statistics for my website. In turn, these visitor statistics are used by me in order to determine the complete number of users who were mediated to me by AdWords advertisements; in general to determine success or failure of particular AdWords advertisements and to optimize my AdWords advertisements for the future. Nor my company neither other advertising customers of Google-AdWords receive information from Google, by which the concerned person could be identified.
With conversion-cookies, personalized information, for example the websites visited by the specific person, are saved. Consequently, with each visit of my webpages personalized data, including the IP address of the internet access used by the concerned person, are saved by the United States of America by Google. Possibly, Google transfers these personalized data collected via technical procedures to third parties.
The concerned person can prevent the setting of cookies at any time via my website as shown above with the help of an according placement of the internet browser in use and in this way object permanently to the setting of cookies. Such a placement of the used internet browser could also prevent the setting of a conversion-cookie on the informational technological system of the respective person. In addition, a set cookie by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.
Furthermore, the concerned person has the possibility to contradict the advertisement based on interests via Google. In order to do this, the concerned person is to trigger the link www.google.de/settings/ads from each of the used internet browsers and conduct the desired placements there.
Further information and the prevailing data privacy regulations by Google are available here: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
- Social media, analyzing tools and tools from third-party providers, log-fields
Upon visiting my website, your surfing habits can be statistically analyzed. This is mostly done with cookies and so-called analyzing programs. The analysis of your surfing habits is mostly anonymous; the surfing habits cannot be traced back to you. You can contradict this analysis or you can prevent it by not using certain tools.
- Use of Google analytics with anonymous function
On my website, I use an advertisement analyzing service by the company Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, in the following called “Google.” Google analytics uses so-called “cookies,” text data saved on your computer, which enables an analysis of the use of the website by you. Engendered information via these cookies, for example time, place and frequency of our website visits, including your IP address, are transferred to Google in the US and saved by them. On my website I use Google-analytics with an IP anonymous function. Your IP address is in this case already shortened by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other contract states of the treaty on the European economic region and thereby made anonymous.
Google will use this information in order to analyze the use of my webpage, to compile reports on the website activities for me, and to provide further services connected to the use of the website and the internet. Also, Google will transmit the information in certain cases to third parties, provided enforced by law or in case third parties process these data for Google. However, according to Google, they will not at all connect your IP address with other data by Google. You can prevent the installation of cookies by a certain setting of your browser software; however I point to the fact that not all of the functions of my website will be working in full effect in this case. Furthermore, Google provides a deactivation option for frequently used browsers, which gives you more control over which data are collected and processed by Google. If you activate this option, no information about your website visit is transmitted to Google Analytics. However, the activation does not prevent the transfer of information to me or other advertisement analytic services used by me. Further information on the deactivation options provided by Google as well as on the activation of this option will be provided via the following link
In order to show the connection with social media networks of Facebook, Twitter and G+, logfiles (s, .o.) are transferred to the internet service Strato.
- Contact form
If you would like to send me requests via the contact form, your requests from the request form including your provided contact data are saved for reasons of handling the request and in case of consequent questions. I will not transfer these data to third parties without your consent.
The processing of data inserted in the contact form is solely being made with your consent (article 6 paragraph 1 letter a DSGVO). You can contradict this consent at all times. In order to do this, an informal e-mail is sufficient. The rightful processing of your data until the contradiction is untouched by the contradiction. Your submitted data via the contact form will stay with me until you ask me for deletion, contradict your consent for filing, or the purpose of data filing is invalid (for example after fulfilled processing of your request). Compelling legal agreements, especially time frames for storage, will be untouched by this.
If you get in touch with me via e-mail, your data for fulfilling your request is being saved as well as in the case of consequent questions. In this lies my rightful interest according to article 6 paragraph 1 page 1 f) DSGVO.
- Legal foundation for processing
Article 6 I letter a DS-GVO serves my company as a legal foundation for processing purposes, in which I ask for consent for a specific process. Is the processing of personalized data necessary for the fulfillment of a contract, in which the contracting party is the concerned person (e.g. in processing cases in which the supply of goods or the provision of other services or equivalent services are necessary), the processing is based on article 6 I, letter b DS-GVO. The same applies to processing purposes, which are necessary for fulfillment of pre-contract measures, for example in cases of requests regarding my products or other services. Underlies my company a lawful obligation, by which a personalized data processing becomes necessary (e.g. the fulfillment of tax-related duties), the processing is based on article 6 I letter c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data is necessary to protect vital interests of the concerned person or other individuals. For example, a visitor in my company is being hurt and consequently, his/her name, address, data of health insurance or other vital information have to be conferred to a doctor, hospital or other third parties. Then the processing of data would be based on article 6 I letter d DS-GVO. Lastly, processing activities can only be based on article 6 I letter f DS-GVO. Processing activities are based on this statutory source, which are not covered by the above stated lawful basics, and if the data processing serves to protect justified interests of my company or a third party, in case these interests do not outweigh basic rights and basic liberties of the concerned. Such processing activities are permitted to me, because they are mentioned by the European legislative authority in particular. In this respect, perception of the existence of a lawful interest is perceived by the European legislative authority, when the concerned person is a customer of the responsible person (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).
- Time period for filing of personalized data
The criterion for the period of the filing of personal data is the respective legal period of safekeeping. After completion of the period, respective data are routinely deleted if they are not needed anymore for contract completion or contract initiation.
- Legal or contractual regulations for providing personalized data; requirement for contract completion; commitment of the concerned person to provide personal data; possible consequences by not providing personal data
Hereby, I explain to you that providing of personal data are partly instructed by law (for instance tax rules), or they result from regulations in a contract (for example information on your contracting party). Occasionally it might be necessary for contract completion that a concerned person provides me with personal data, which are consequently processed by. For example, the concerned person is to provide me with personal data in case my company completes a contract with him/her. Non-provision of personal data leads the non-completion of a contract with the concerned person. Prior to providing me with personal data by the concerned person, the concerned person needs to contact me.
- Existence of an automated decision making process
As a responsible company, I renounce an automatic decision making process or a profiling.
- Payment provider PayPal
On my website, I provide payments via PayPal among others. Provider of this payment service is PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (in the following “PayPal”).
If you choose payment via PayPal, your stated data of payment will be transferred to PayPal.
The transfer of your data to PayPal is being made on the basics of article 6 paragraph 1 letter a DSGVO (agreement) and article 6 paragraph 1 letter b DSGVO (processing for fulfillment of contract). You have the possibility of contradicting your consent for data processing at any time. A contradiction does not have any consequences for the effectiveness of past data procedures.
