The website uses an encryption method (e.g. SSL) to protect the security of your data during transmissions. This prevents transmitted data from being read by third parties. You can recognize the encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser starts with “https://” and the lock symbol in front of it.

When processing mandates given to us, we process personal data of our clients in order to communicate, advise, defend and fulfill orders, the legal basis for this is in each case Art. 6 I 1 lit. b) DSGVO. Insofar as interested parties or clients contact us by e-mail or let us know their e-mail address, we understand this as consent to communicate by e-mail, although e-mails are only encrypted during transmission and third parties can therefore take unauthorized note of their content. Interested parties and clients may object to the use of unencrypted e-mails at any time. In the course of our activities, we also process personal data of third parties such as opponents, in particular of the natural persons representing them, in order to fulfill the purpose of the assignment, the legal basis for which is Art. 6 I 1 lit. f) DSGVO, our legitimate interest being the proper processing of the mandate. Finally, personal data is also processed by our service providers, suppliers and business partners in order to fulfill contracts or carry out pre-contractual measures, Art. 6 I 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

§ 7 Information about cookies and the cookie manager

We use cookies on our website. Some of them are essential and technically necessary, so we do not require consent for their use. Others, on the other hand, help us to improve this website and your experience. If you are under 16 and wish to give your consent to voluntary services, you must ask your parent or guardian for permission. Personal data such as your IP addresses may be processed in the process, for example for personalized ads and content or ad and content measurement.

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard drive associated with the browser you are using and through which information flows to the entity that sets the cookie. Cookies cannot execute programs or transfer viruses to your computer.

Cookies can be differentiated in terms of their scope and function into so-called transient and persistent cookies.

Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include in particular the session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which various requests of your browser can be assigned to the common session. This allows your device to be recognized when you return to our website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.

Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may differ depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.

We use as a cookie box the service of SeoGoal, Jan Graupner, Am See 6, 24791 Neu Duvenstedt. You can thus select cookies or cookie categories to which you want to consent via the displayed checkbox. You can select the cookies or cookie categories “Essential”, “Statistics” and “External Media” and revoke or adjust them at any time under Settings.

You can also configure your browser settings according to your preferences and, for example, refuse to accept so-called third-party cookies or all cookies. We would like to point out that in this case you will not be able to use all functions of this website.

An overview of the cookies used can be found in this privacy policy under § 11.

§ 8 Integration of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, however, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This means that IP addresses are processed in abbreviated form, which means that personal references can be ruled out. Insofar as the data collected about you is related to a person, this is therefore immediately excluded and the personal data is thus immediately deleted.

The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser or cookie manager, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link:

We use Google Analytics to analyze and regularly improve the use of our website. The statistics obtained allow us to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 I 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

§ 9 Integration of Google Maps

On this website we use the offer of Google Maps. This allows us to show you interactive maps directly in the website and enables you to use the map function comfortably.

By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding sub-page of our website. In addition, the data mentioned under § 4 of this declaration are transmitted. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not wish to have your data associated with your Google profile, you must log out before using this service. 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 the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right.
