2) Data collection when visiting our website
During the mere informational use of our website, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us, we only collect data that your browser transmits to our server (so-called 'server log files'). When you access our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to display the website to you:

The data is not passed on or used in any other way. However, we reserve the right to subsequently check the server log files should concrete indications point to illegal use.
If personal data is also processed by individual cookies used by us, the processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO either for the performance of the contract, in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO in the case of consent given, or in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO to protect our legitimate interests in the best possible functionality of the website as well as a customer-friendly and effective design of the site visit.

In the context of contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail), personal data is processed - exclusively for the purpose of processing and responding to your request and only to the extent necessary for this purpose. The legal basis for processing this data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. If your contact is aimed at a contract, the additional legal basis for processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO. Your data will be deleted when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified and provided that there are no statutory retention obligations to the contrary.
5) Web analytics services
Google Analytics 4
This website uses Google Analytics 4, a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ('Google'), which can be used to analyze the use of websites.
When using Google Analytics 4, so-called 'cookies' are used by default. Cookies are text files that are stored on your terminal device and enable an analysis of your use of a website. The information collected by cookies about your use of the website (including the IP address transmitted by your terminal device, shortened by the last digits, see below) is usually transmitted to a Google server and stored and processed there. This may also result in the transmission of information to the servers of the company Google LLC, which is based in the USA, and further processing of the information there.
When using Google Analytics 4, the IP address transmitted by your terminal device during your use of the website is always collected and processed by default and automatically only in an anonymized manner, so that a direct personal reference of the collected information is excluded. This automatic anonymization takes place by shortening the IP address transmitted by your terminal device by Google within Member States of the European Union (EU) or other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA) by the last digits.
On our behalf, Google uses this and other information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports (reports) on your website activities or usage behavior and to provide us with other services related to your website usage and internet usage. In this context, the IP address transmitted and shortened by your terminal device within the scope of Google Analytics 4 will not be merged with other data from Google. The data collected as part of the use of Google Analytics 4 will be retained for 2 months and then deleted.
Google Analytics 4 also enables the creation of statistics with statements about the age, gender and interests of website users on the basis of an evaluation of interest-based advertising and with the involvement of third-party information via a special function, the so-called 'demographic characteristics'. This makes it possible to determine and distinguish user groups of the website for the purpose of targeting marketing measures. However, data collected via the 'demographic characteristics' cannot be assigned to a specific person and thus also not to you personally. This data collected via the 'demographic characteristics' function is retained for two months and then deleted.
All processing described above, in particular the setting of Google Analytics cookies for the storage and reading of information on the terminal device used by you for the use of the website, will only take place if you have given us your express consent for this in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO. Without your consent, Google Analytics 4 will not be used during your use of the website. You can revoke your consent once given at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your revocation, please deactivate this service via the 'Cookie Consent Tool' provided on the website.
In connection with this website, the function 'UserIDs' is also used as an extension of Google Analytics 4. By assigning individual UserIDs, we can have Google generate cross-device reports (so-called 'cross-device tracking'). This means that your usage behavior can also be analyzed across devices if you have given your corresponding consent to the use of Google Analytics 4 in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO, if you have set up a personal account by registering on this website and are logged into your personal account on different end devices with your relevant login data. The data collected in this way shows, among other things, on which end device you clicked on an ad for the first time and on which end device the related conversion took place.
We have concluded a so-called order processing agreement with Google for our use of Google Analytics 4, by which Google is obligated to protect the data of our website users and not to pass it on to third parties.
To ensure compliance with the European level of data protection also in the event of any transfer of data from the EU or EEA to the USA and possible further processing there, Google invokes the so-called standard contractual clauses of the European Commission, which we have contractually agreed with Google.
Further legal information on Google Analytics 4, including a copy of the aforementioned standard contractual clauses, can be found athttps://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de&gl=de and at https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites

7) Duration of retention of personal data
The duration of the storage of personal data shall be measured on the basis of the respective legal basis, the purpose of processing and - if relevant - additionally on the basis of the respective statutory retention period (e.g. retention periods under commercial and tax law).
In the case of processing of personal data on the basis of explicit consent pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) DSGVO, this data shall be stored until the data subject revokes his/her consent.
If legal retention periods exist for data that is processed within the scope of legal or quasi-legal obligations on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO, this data will be routinely deleted after the retention periods have expired, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfillment or initiation of a contract and/or there is no continued legitimate interest on our part in its storage.
In the case of processing of personal data on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) DSGVO, such data shall be stored until the data subject exercises his or her right to object pursuant to Art. 21(1) DSGVO, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.
Where personal data are processed for the purposes of direct marketing on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, such data shall be stored until the data subject exercises his or her right to object in accordance with Article 21(2) of the GDPR.
Unless otherwise stated in the other information in this statement about specific processing situations, stored personal data are otherwise deleted when they are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
