Collection of general information when visiting our website
Nature and purpose of processing:
When you access our website, i.e., when you do not register or otherwise submit information, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider, your IP address and the like.
In particular, they are processed for the following purposes:
• Ensuring a smooth connection setup of the website,
• Ensuring a smooth use of our website,
• Evaluation of system security and stability as well as
• For other administrative purposes.
We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. Information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us, if necessary, in order to optimize our Internet presence and the technology behind it.
The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.
Recipients of the data may be technical service providers who act as order processors for the operation and maintenance of our website.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose for which it was collected. This is generally the case for data used to provide the website when the respective session has ended.
Provision prescribed or required:
The provision of the aforementioned personal data is neither legally nor contractually required. However, without the IP address, the service and functionality of our website is not guaranteed. In addition, individual services and services may not be available or may be limited. For this reason, an objection is excluded.
On the legal grounds of Art. 6 subs. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR we are using the tracking measures listed below. By using those tracking measures, we want to safeguard a needs-based design and the continuous optimization of our website. On the other hand, we use the tracking measures to statistically record the use of our website and evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our services for you. These interests shall be regarded as justified within the meaning of the aforementioned regulation.
The respective data processing purposes and data categories shall be derived from the corresponding tracking tools.
For the purpose of customizing and continually optimizing our website, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (https://www.google.com/intl/en/about/) (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, hereafter “Google”). In this context, pseudonymised usage profiles are created and cookies (see no. 4) are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as
• browser type / version,
• used operating system,
• referrer URL (the previously visited page),
• host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
• time of server request,
are transmitted to a Google server in the US and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage for the purposes of market research and needs-based website design. This information may also be transferred to third parties if required by law or if third parties process this data in the order. Under no circumstances will your IP address be connected to any other data provided by Google. The IP addresses are anonymized, so that an individual assignment is not possible (IP masking).
You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting the browser software accordingly; however, we point out that in this case not all features of this website may be used to their full extend.
In addition, you may prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).
As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie will be set that will prevent the future collection of your data when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.
For more information on privacy matters related to Google Analytics, see the Google Analytics Help Center (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de).
Nature and purpose of processing:
On this website, we use the offer of Google Maps. Google Maps is operated by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter “Google”). This allows us to display interactive maps directly on the website and enables you to use the map function conveniently.
Detailed instructions on managing your own data in connection with Google products can be found here.
The legal basis for the integration of Google Maps and the associated data transfer to Google is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO).
By visiting the website, Google receives information that you have called up the corresponding sub-page of our website. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether there is no user account. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account.
If you do not want the assignment in your profile at Google, you must log out of Google before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this.
We do not collect any personal data, through the integration of Google Maps.
Revocation of consent:
Provision mandatory or required:
The provision of your personal data is voluntary, based solely on your
consent. If you disable access, this may result in functional restrictions on the website.
The controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, compilation, and evaluation of data about 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 referrers), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used for the optimization of a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The controller uses the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp” for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this additive, the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is shortened and anonymized by Google if access to our Internet pages is 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 analyze the flow of visitors to our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us showing the activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.
Google Analytics sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. By each call of one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system 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 Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission calculations.
By means of the cookie, personal information, such as the access time, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject, is stored. Each time the data subject visits 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 this personal data collected via the technical procedure to third parties.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time 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 setting a cookie on the information technology system 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.
If you are interested in working for our law firm, you have the option of applying to us by mail, e-mail or through our website.
In this case, we process the information that we receive from you voluntarily as part of the application process, such as your cover letter, your resume and your references, as well as other information voluntarily provided about your qualifications, work experience and skills.
Your data will be processed to carry out the application process and, if your application is successful, to implement and terminate the employment relationship. In the event of an unsuccessful application, we will continue to process your data for up to six months after sending the rejection in order to defend ourselves against any legal claims. In the event of a successful application, your data will be deleted in accordance with the regulations applicable to personnel files.
The legal basis for data processing in the application process and for the implementation and termination of the employment relationship is Section 26 (1) sentence 1 BDSG as well as Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR and, in the case of your explicit consent, Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR. The legal basis for data processing in the event of a rejection is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.
With the exception of any notification of a severe disability, no special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 GDPR are required for our application process and we request that you refrain from transmitting any such data that is not required from the outset. In the case of a severe disability, the processing serves the exercise of rights and/or the fulfillment of legal obligations under labor and social law. In this case, the legal basis for data processing is Art. 9 (2) b GDPR, §§ 26 (3) BDSG, 164 SGB IX.
You have the right:
• to request access to your personal data processed by us pursuant to Art. 15 GDPR. In particular, you may request information about the processing purposes, the categories of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been disclosed, the planned retention period, the right of rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or opposition, the existence of a right to complain, the source of your data, if not collected by us, and the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, and, where appropriate, meaningful information about its details;
• to demand without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data or the completion of your personal data stored by us pursuant to Art. 16 GDPR;
• to demand without undue delay the erasure of your personal data held by us, in accordance with Art. 17 GDPR, unless the processing is necessary for exercising the right to freedom of expression and information, for the compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of the public interest or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims;
• to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data in accordance with Art. 18 GDPR, as far as the accuracy of the data is contested by you, the processing is unlawful, but you oppose to its erasure, we no longer need the data, but you require the data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or you have objected to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR;
• to receive your personal data provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request the transfer to another controller without hinderance pursuant to Art. 20 GDPR;
• pursuant to Art. 7 subs. 3 GDPR, to withdraw your once given consent to us at any time. As a result, we are not allowed to continue the data processing based on this consent for the future and
• to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority in accordance with Art. 77 GDPR. As a rule, you can contact the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence or work or our company headquarters.
If your personal data is processed based on legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 subs. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR, you have the right to object against the processing of your personal data at any time in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR, provided that there are reasons for this action related to your particular situation or the objection is directed against direct marketing. In the latter case, you have a general right of objection, which is implemented by us without specifying any particular situation.
If you would like to exercise your right to withdraw or object, please send an e-mail to the company data protection officer mentioned above under firstname.lastname@example.org.
We use the Transport Layer Security method on our website, more commonly known as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), as a hybrid encryption protocol for secure data transmission over the Internet, coupled with the highest level of security supported by your browser. In general, this is a 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we will use 128-bit v3 technology, instead. Whether a single (sub-) page of our website is encrypted is indicated by the closed representation of the key or lock symbol in the status bar of your browser.
In addition, we use appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or total loss, destruction or unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in compliance with technological developments.
