Collection of personal data when you visit our website

For technical reasons, we require the following data to provide access to our website and to ensure stability and security (the legal basis for this is Art. 6(1) sentence 1 point f GDPR):

(2) In addition, cookies are stored on your computer when you visit our website. Cookies are small text files stored on your computer by your web browser. They transmit certain information from your computer to the website you are visiting (in this case our website). Cookies cannot run programs or transmit viruses to your computer. They serve to make the website more user-friendly and effective overall.
a) This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and functions of which are explained below:
– Transient cookies (see b)
– Persistent cookies (see c).
b) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. They include in particular session cookies. These store a session ID by which multiple queries from your browser are assigned to the general session. This enables your computer to be recognized again when you return to our website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.
c) Permanent cookies are automatically deleted after a given time, which can be different for each cookie. You can delete cookies at any time in your browser’s security settings.
d) You can configure your browser settings as you wish. For example, you may refuse to accept third-party cookies or all cookies. Please note that if you do so, you might not be able to use all of this website’s functions.
Use of Google Analytics
(2) The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with any other data held by Google.
(3) You may refuse the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. However, please note that if you do so, you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing these data by downloading and installing the browser add-on available here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
(4) This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This means that IP addresses are further processed in a shortened form so that personal identification is ruled out. As far as the data collected about you are personal, the identification is excluded and the personal data will be deleted immediately.
(5) We use Google Analytics to analyze and regularly improve use of our website. The statistics obtained from this allow us to optimize our content and to make it more interesting for you. In the exceptional cases where personal data are transmitted to the US, Google is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield: https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is provided by Art. 6(1) sentence 1 point f GDPR.
On our website we use links to the social networks Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram in a way that does not establish any direct connection between your browser and the server of the social network in question. The symbols of the relevant social networks appearing on our websites are simple links to our own pages on these networks. Responsibility for ensuring operation in compliance with data protection regulations rests with the individual network providers.
(1) You can sign up to receive our “Join #TeamMichael” newsletter, which contains interesting current offers. The products and services advertised are shown in the declaration of consent.
(2) We use the double-opt-in procedure for our mailing list: After you sign up, we send an email to the address you provide, asking you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. We also store your IP address and the time you sign up and confirm. This procedure enables us to trace your registration and to resolve any misuse of your personal data.
(3) Only your email address is required to sign up for the newsletter. After receiving confirmation from you, we will save your email address for the purpose of sending you the newsletter. The legal basis for this is Art. 6(1) sentence 1 point a GDPR.
(4) We use the newsletter software Newsletter2Go. Your data will be transmitted to Newsletter2Go GmbH. Newsletter2Go is not permitted to sell your data or to use them for purposes other than sending newsletters. Newsletter2Go is a certified service provider based in Germany that was selected in accordance with the requirements of the GDPR and the German Federal Data Protection Act. Further information is available at: https://www.newsletter2go.com/information-for-newsletter-recipients/
(5) You can unsubscribe from the newsletter and revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time. You can do this in three ways: (1) click on the ‘unsubscribe’ link in any newsletter email; (2) send an email to email@example.com; (3) contact the address shown in the legal notice.
(6) We will evaluate your user behavior when we send the newsletter. The emails we send contain web beacons or tracking pixels: images of 1×1 pixel in size that are embedded in our website. For the evaluation, we link the data mentioned in § 3 and the web beacons with your email address and an individual ID. Links embedded in the newsletter also contain this ID. With the collected data we create a user profile that enables us to tailor the newsletter to your interests. We do this by storing information on when and from where you read the newsletter and which links you click on. We then link this to information on how you use our website.
Tracking is not possible if you have selected the “block images” option in your email program. In that case, you will not see the images in the newsletter and may not be able to use all of the functions. If you manually select “show images”, we will track as described above.
We use tracking to analyze and regularly improve use of our newsletter. The statistics obtained from this allow us to optimize our content and to make it more interesting for you. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is provided by Art. 6(1) sentence 1 point f GDPR.
(1) We use Google Fonts on our website. These are fonts provided by Google to ensure that our website is displayed as uniformly as possible on different devices. A connection to Google’s servers in the US is established when you visit our website for the first time and at regular intervals thereafter. This enables Google to identify the website and IP address from which the Google Fonts are accessed and to identify the IP address from which each website is accessed.
(2) The Google Fonts are supplied by Google LLC. The contact details contained in § 4(6) of this data protection notice also apply to Google LLC.
(4) The legal basis for the use of the Google Fonts is provided by Art. 6(1) sentence 1 point f GDPR. Our legitimate interest is based on displaying our website as uniformly as possible on different devices and thereby efficient web design.
Right of objection and revocation
(1) If your personal data are being processed on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6(1) sentence 1 point f GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR on grounds relating to your particular situation.
(2) You have a general right to object to direct marketing.
(3) To object or to revoke your consent, please send an email to the address given in § 1(2) above.
We do not use automated decision-making, including profiling, in accordance with Art. 22(1) and (4) GDPR.
Voluntary provision of personal data
The provision of the above-mentioned personal data is always voluntary. However, for technical reasons you cannot use our website without an IP address. The same applies to our newsletter, which we cannot send to you unless you provide your email address.
Right of amendment
(1) We reserve the right to amend this data protection notice with future effect when we amend our website or if required to do so due to technical or statutory changes.
(2) This is the current version of the data protection notice as of August 2019.
