XIII. Google Analytics
On this website, the data controller has integrated the Google Analytics components (with anonymization function). Google Analytics is a web analysis service that collects, compiles and assesses data concerning the behaviour of website visitors. Amongst others, a web analysis service records data such as the website (so-called referrer) from which a user came to another website, the subpages of the website that have been visited, for how long and how often.
The operating company of the Google Analytics components is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The purpose of the Google Analytics components is to analyse the user traffic on our website. Amongst others, Google uses the data which is acquired in order to evaluate the use of our Internet sites, to compile online reports for us which state the activities on our Internet sites and to provide other services connected to the use of our Internet site.
Google Analytics sets a cookie on the IT system of the data subject. An explanation of what cookies are is provided above. By means of the setting of the cookie, Google is able to analyse the use of our Internet site. By means of each accessing of the individual pages of this Internet site which is operated by the body responsible for the processing and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the IT system of the data subject is automatically instructed by the respective Google Analytics components to transfer data to Google for the purpose of the online analysis. In the course of this technical process, Google is informed of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which enables Google amongst others to trace the origin of the visitors and clicks and to subsequently carry out commission billing.
By means of the cookie, personal information, such as the time of access, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of the visits to our Internet site by the data subject is saved. Each time our Internet sites are visited, this personal data, including your IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the USA. This personal data is saved by Google in the USA. Google may pass this personal data gathered through the technical procedure on to third parties in certain cases.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our Internet site, as set out above at any time by setting the Internet browser used accordingly and thereby permanently objecting to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google setting a cookie on the IT system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie which has already been set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
XVIII. Rights of the data subject
Should your personal data be processed, you are a data subject as defined by the GDPR and have the following rights against the controller:

(4) if you have raised an objection to the processing in accordance with Article 21 Paragraph 1 GDPR and it is not yet established whether the controller’s legitimate reasons outweigh your own reasons. Should the processing of your personal data have been restricted, this data, apart from its saving, may only be processed with your consent or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, to protect the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons connected to the public interest of the EU or a Member State.
Should the restriction thus obtained be repealed, you will be notified by the controller before the restriction is lifted.

You may claim that the controller immediately deletes your personal data in the following cases:

- c) Exceptions
The right of deletion does not apply should the processing be necessary:
(1) to exercise the right of freedom of expression and the right to information;

- Right of notification
Should you have claimed your right of rectification, deletion or restriction of the processing against the controller, he shall notify all recipients your personal data was disclosed to of this rectification, deletion or restriction, unless this proves impossible or requires disproportionate effort.

- Right of data portability
You have the right to ask for the personal data you have provided to the controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.

(1) the processing is based on your consent in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter a) GDPR or Article 9 Paragraph 2 Letter a) GDPR or based on a contract in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter b) GDPR, and
(2) the processing takes place with the assistance of automated procedures. When exercising this right of data portability, you also have the right to have your personal data transferred directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible. This does not infringe other people’s freedoms and rights.
The right of data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data which is necessary in order to fulfil a task of public interest or related to the exercise of public authority bestowed upon the controller.
- Right of objection
For reasons related to your specific situation, you have, at any time, the right to object to the processing of your personal data in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter e) or f) GDPR; this also applies to any profiling based on these provisions.
The controller shall no longer process your personal data, unless he can demonstrate legitimate compelling reasons for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the purpose of the processing is the assertion, exercising or defence of legal claims.
Should your personal data be processed in order to carry out direct advertising, you have, at any time, the right to object to the processing of your personal data for the purposes of such direct advertising; this also applies to the profiling, should it be connected to such direct advertising.
Should you object to the processing for purposes of direct advertising, your personal data will no longer be processed for such purposes.

- Automated individual decision making, including profiling
You have the right not to be subjected to a decision based exclusively on automated processing, including profiling, having legal effect on you or affecting you significantly in a similar way. This does not apply where the decision:
(1) is necessary in order to conclude or fulfil a contract between yourself and the controller;
(2) is permitted by legal regulations of the EU or of the Member State to which the controller is subject, already providing reasonable measures to protect your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, or
(3) is based on your express consent.
However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data under Article 9 Paragraph 1 GDPR, unless Article 9 Paragraph 2 Letter a) or Letter g) applies and reasonable measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms, as well as your legitimate interests.
In the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the controller shall take reasonable measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, where as a minimum this includes your right to human intervention from the controller, the right to express your opinion and to challenge the decision.
- Right to complain to a supervisory authority
Regardless of any other administrative or legal remedy, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence area, your working place or the location of the alleged breach, should you feel that the processing of your personal data breaches the GDPR. The supervisory authority to which the complaint was submitted shall keep the complainant informed of the status and results of the claim, including of the option of legal remedy before a court in accordance with Article 78 GDPR.
