2. Mandatory Information

Data privacy

We, the Christian Maier GmbH & Co. KG, take the protection of your personal data very seriously and therefore adhere to applicable laws and regulations on data protection. The following points will give you an overview of how we ensure this protection and what data we process for this purpose when you visit our website.
If the opportunity for the input of personal or business data is given, the input of these data takes place voluntarily. By disclosing the data, the user declares his consent to the internal processing and storage of the data by the publisher and/or its subsidiaries.

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet may be subject to security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

The responsible body is a natural or legal person who alone or together with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data.

Revocation of your consent to data processing

You can revoke your consent to the collection and use of your personal data given to us at any time free of charge and without giving reasons for the future. In addition, you have the right to have data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to third parties (data transferability). It is provided in a machine-readable format.
Many data processing processes are only possible with express consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal message, for example in the form of an e-mail. The legality of the data processing up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right of objection against data collection in special cases and against direct advertising (Art. 21 DSGVO)

If data processing is based on Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DSGVO, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this data protection declaration. If you file an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims (objection pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO).

If your personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will no longer be used for the purpose of direct marketing (objection pursuant to Art. 21 para. 2 DSGVO).

Right to data transferability

You have the right to have data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another person responsible, this will only take place if this is technically feasible.

Website Encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the address line of the browser, which changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in the browser line. If SSL or TLS encryption is active, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, blocking, deletion

You will receive information about your stored personal data and its origin free of charge at any time and without giving reasons. You will also receive information about the recipients to whom data (if applicable) is passed on and the purpose of data processing. Furthermore, you have the right to have incorrect data corrected and personal data that is no longer required deleted, unless other statutory provisions provide for an obligation to retain such data. In these cases, you have the right to restrict data processing (blocking). If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at the address given in the imprint.

Objection against advertising mails

Contact data published within the scope of the imprint obligation may not be used for the transmission of unsolicited advertising and information material. Hereby the operators of the sides reserve themselves expressly legal steps in case of the unsolicited forwarding of advertising information (e.g. by Spam E-Mail).

3. Data collection on our website

Cookies

In order for this site to function properly, we place small files, so-called cookies, on your device. This is not unusual and is standard on most large websites.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website leaves on your computer, tablet or smartphone when you visit it. This allows the page to remember certain entries and settings (e.g. login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a certain period of time. This means you do not need to make your preferred settings each time you visit and navigate the site.

How do we use cookies?

On our pages we use cookies to store your personal data.

– your screen display preferences, e.g. contrast and font size
– your decision to use (or not to use) cookies on this website.

Embedded videos on our pages also use cookies to generate anonymous statistics about the previously visited pages and the selected videos. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both his website and his advertising.

Accepting cookies is not absolutely necessary for the use of the portal, but it makes surfing more pleasant. You may block or delete cookies, but this may affect some features of this portal. The information collected using cookies is not used to identify you. The data is completely under our control. In addition, cookies are used exclusively for the purposes stated here.

Control over cookies

You can control and/or delete cookies at will. How to find out here: aboutcookies.org. You can delete all cookies stored on your computer and set most browsers so that the storage of cookies is prevented. However, you may have to make some settings manually each time you visit a page and accept the impairment of some functions.

Server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are browser type and browser version, operating system used, referrer URL, host name of the accessing computer, time of the server request and IP address. These data are not combined with other data sources. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour for technical and statistical purposes.

In order to further optimize our website and our offers, these files are created. We also reserve the right to use this data in the event of system abuse to determine the cause or trigger of the abuse.

Contact form

If you send us enquiries using the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
The data entered in the contact form is therefore processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal e-mail. The legality of the data processing processes carried out up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete, your consent for storage revoked or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

4. Analysis tools and advertising

Google Analytics – General

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of 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 transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google Analytics cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both his website and his advertising. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. You can find more information in Google’s privacy policy: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.

Google Analytics – IP Anonymization

However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. 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 to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

Google Analytics – Browser Plug-In

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, 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 Google from collecting data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).

You can prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on the link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent future collection of your data when you visit this website: Disable Google Analytics. Opt-out cookies are cookies created by websites in your browser folders to block the same website from creating additional cookies in the future. The opt-out cookie informs the website that it should not install third party cookies or other cookies in your browser.

Google Analytics – Objection against data collection

For more information on terms of use and data protection, please visit https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by a part of the code to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses.

Google Analytics – Order data processing

We have concluded a contract with Google for commissioned data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities for the use of Google Analytics.

Google Analytics – Demographic Features

This website uses the “demographic features” function of Google Analytics. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Due to technical and statistical purposes, the website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing the demographic characteristics of website visitors. Google Analytics'”demographic features” feature allows you to generate reports that include information about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-related advertising by Google and from visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can disable this feature at any time from your Google Account ad preferences or opt-out of Google Analytics collecting your information as described in the “Opt-out of data collection” section.

Google Analytics – Remarketing

Our websites use the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing in connection with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

This function enables the target groups created with Google Analytics Remarketing to be linked with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. In this way, interest-related, personalized advertising messages that were adapted to you depending on your previous usage and surfing behavior on one device (e.g. mobile phone) can also be displayed on another of your devices (e.g. tablet or PC). Once you give your permission, Google will link your web and app browsing history to your Google Account for that purpose. This way, the same personalized advertising messages can be delivered to every device you sign in to with your Google Account. To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google authenticated user IDs that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create cross-device ad targeting.

You can permanently object to cross-device remarketing/targeting by disabling personalized advertising in your Google Account by following this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.

The summary of the data collected in your Google Account is based solely on your consent, which you can submit or revoke to Google (Art. 6 par. 1 lit. a DSGVO). For data collection operations that are not merged into your Google Account, the collection of data is based on Article 6(1)(f) of the DSGVO. The legitimate interest arises from the fact that the website operator has an interest in anonymous analysis of website visitors for advertising purposes. Further information and the data protection regulations can be found in Google’s data protection declaration at: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/.

Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking

This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).
In the context of Google AdWords we use the so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad served by Google, a cookie is set for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that the Internet browser places on the user’s computer. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive any information that personally identifies users. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can object to this use by easily deactivating the Google Conversion Tracking cookie via your Internet browser under User Settings. They are then not included in the conversion tracking statistics.

Conversion cookies” are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both his website and his advertising. For more information on Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking, please see Google’s privacy policy: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.

YouTube

Our website uses plug-ins from the YouTube page operated by Google. This website is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit one of our YouTube plugged in pages, a connection to YouTube’s servers is established. The YouTube server is informed which of our pages you have visited.

The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

If you do not want or your browser does not support Google Web Fonts, a default font will be used by your computer. As a result, the display of our homepage may change.
