How do we col­lect your data?

On the one hand, your data is col­lect­ed when you pro­vide it to us. This could e.g. be data you enter in a con­tact form.

Oth­er data are auto­mat­i­cal­ly record­ed by our IT sys­tems when you vis­it the web­site. These are main­ly tech­ni­cal data (e.g. web brows­er, oper­at­ing sys­tem or the time of view­ing the page). These data are col­lect­ed auto­mat­i­cal­ly as soon as you enter our website.

What do we use your data for?

2. Gen­er­al infor­ma­tion and manda­to­ry information

Data pro­tec­tion

The oper­a­tors of this web­site take the pro­tec­tion of your per­son­al data very seri­ous­ly. We treat your per­son­al data con­fi­den­tial­ly and in accor­dance with the statu­to­ry pri­va­cy reg­u­la­tions and this pri­va­cy statement.

When you use this web­site, var­i­ous per­son­al data are col­lect­ed. Per­son­al data are data with which you can be per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fied. This pri­va­cy state­ment explains which data we col­lect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what pur­pose this is done.

We would like to point out that there can be secu­ri­ty gaps when trans­mit­ting data via the inter­net (e.g. when com­mu­ni­cat­ing by e‑mail). A com­plete pro­tec­tion of data against access by third par­ties is not possible.

Note on the respon­si­ble body

The respon­si­ble body for data pro­cess­ing on this web­site is:

Kirsten Schrick Poten­tial leben Reichen­bach­straße 12 80469 Munich

Phone: 49 (0)8971 13 05 E‑mail: info@​kirsten-​schrick.de

The respon­si­ble body is the nat­ur­al or legal per­son who alone or joint­ly with oth­ers decides on the pur­pos­es and means of pro­cess­ing per­son­al data (e.g. names, e‑mail address­es, etc.).

Revo­ca­tion of your con­sent to data processing

Many data pro­cess­ing oper­a­tions are only pos­si­ble with your express con­sent. You can revoke your con­sent at any time. An e‑mail to us is suf­fi­cient to accom­plish this. The legal­i­ty of the data pro­cess­ing car­ried out before the revo­ca­tion remains unaf­fect­ed by the revocation.

The right to object to data col­lec­tion in spe­cial cas­es and to direct mail (art. 21 GDPR)

If the data pro­cess­ing is based on art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right at any time to object to the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data for rea­sons that arise 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 pri­va­cy state­ment. If you object, we will no longer process your con­cerned per­son­al data, unless we can pro­vide com­pelling legit­i­mate rea­sons for the pro­cess­ing that out­weigh your inter­ests, rights and free­doms, or the pro­cess­ing serves to assert, exer­cise or defend legal claims (objec­tion under art. 21 para. 1 GDPR)

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

Right of appeal to the com­pe­tent super­vi­so­ry authority

In the event of vio­la­tions of the GDPR, the data sub­jects have the right to lodge a com­plaint with a super­vi­so­ry author­i­ty, in par­tic­u­lar in the mem­ber state of their habit­u­al res­i­dence, their place of work or the place of the alleged vio­la­tion. The right of appeal exists with­out prej­u­dice to oth­er admin­is­tra­tive or judi­cial remedies.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data which we process auto­mat­i­cal­ly on the basis of your con­sent or in ful­fill­ment 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 respon­si­ble per­son, this will only be done if it is tech­ni­cal­ly feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption

For secu­ri­ty rea­sons and to pro­tect against the trans­mis­sion of con­fi­den­tial con­tent such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as web­site oper­a­tor, this site uses an SSL resp. TLS encryp­tion. You can rec­og­nize an encrypt­ed con­nec­tion by the URL address line of the brows­er, which will change from http: //” to https: //” and by the lock sym­bol left of the URL.

If the SSL or TLS encryp­tion is acti­vat­ed, the data you trans­mit to us can­not be read by third parties.

Infor­ma­tion, block­ing, dele­tion and correction

With­in the frame­work of the applic­a­ble legal pro­vi­sions, you have the right to obtain infor­ma­tion about your stored per­son­al data, their ori­gin and recip­i­ent and the pur­pose of the data pro­cess­ing and, if nec­es­sary, a right to cor­rect, block or delete these data, free of charge. You can con­tact us at any time at the address giv­en in the legal notice if you have any fur­ther ques­tions on the sub­ject of per­son­al data.

Right to restric­tion of processing

You have the right to request that the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data be restrict­ed. You can con­tact us at any time at the address giv­en in the legal notice. The right to restric­tion of pro­cess­ing exists in the fol­low­ing cases:

If you dis­pute the accu­ra­cy of your per­son­al data stored by us, we usu­al­ly need some time to ver­i­fy this. For the dura­tion of that ver­i­fi­ca­tion, you have the right to request that the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data be restricted.

If the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data happened/​happens unlaw­ful­ly, you can request restric­tion of the data pro­cess­ing instead of deletion.

If we no longer need your per­son­al data, but you need them to exer­cise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request that the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data be restrict­ed instead of being deleted.

In case of your objec­tion under art. 21 para. 1 GDPR, your inter­ests have to be weighed against ours. As long as it is not yet clear whose inter­ests pre­vail, you have the right to request that the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data be restricted.

If you have restrict­ed the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data, these data may — apart from their stor­age — only be processed with your con­sent or for the estab­lish­ment, exer­cise or defense of legal claims or to pro­tect the rights of anoth­er nat­ur­al or legal per­son or for rea­sons of impor­tant pub­lic inter­est on the part of the Euro­pean Union or a mem­ber state.

Objec­tion to adver­tis­ing e‑mails

We here­by object to the use of con­tact data as pub­lished in the con­text of the imprint oblig­a­tion for the pur­pose of send­ing unso­licit­ed adver­tis­ing and relat­ed infor­ma­tion mate­ri­als. The oper­a­tors of the pages express­ly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unso­licit­ed send­ing of adver­tis­ing mate­ri­als, such as spam e‑mails.

3. Data col­lec­tion on our website

Cook­ies

Some inter­net pages make use of so-called cook­ies. Cook­ies do not dam­age your com­put­er and do not con­tain virus­es. Cook­ies serve to make our offer more user-friend­ly, more effec­tive and safer. Cook­ies are small text files that are stored on your com­put­er and saved by your browser.

Most of the cook­ies we use are so-called ses­sion cook­ies. They are auto­mat­i­cal­ly delet­ed at the end of your vis­it. Oth­er cook­ies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cook­ies enable us to rec­og­nize your brows­er the next time you visit.

You can con­fig­ure your brows­er so that you are informed about the set­ting of cook­ies and only allow cook­ies in indi­vid­ual cas­es, exclude the accep­tance of cook­ies in cer­tain sit­u­a­tions or in gen­er­al, and acti­vate the auto­mat­ic dele­tion of cook­ies when you close the brows­er. If cook­ies are deac­ti­vat­ed, the func­tion­al­i­ty of this web­site may be limited.

Cook­ies that are required to car­ry out the elec­tron­ic com­mu­ni­ca­tion process or to pro­vide cer­tain func­tions that you wish to use (e. g. the shop­ping cart func­tion­al­i­ty) are saved in accor­dance with art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The web­site oper­a­tor has a legit­i­mate inter­est in the stor­age of cook­ies for a tech­ni­cal­ly error-free and opti­mized pro­vi­sion of its ser­vices. As far as oth­er cook­ies (e.g. cook­ies for ana­lyz­ing your surf­ing behav­ior) are stored, these are treat­ed sep­a­rate­ly in this pri­va­cy statement.

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. This infor­ma­tion comprises:

Brows­er type and brows­er version

Oper­at­ing sys­tem used

Refer­rer URL

Host name of the access­ing computer

Time of the serv­er request

IP address

These data will not be merged with oth­er data sources.

These data are col­lect­ed in accor­dance with art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The web­site oper­a­tor has a legit­i­mate inter­est in the tech­ni­cal­ly error-free dis­play and opti­miza­tion of his web­site — the serv­er log files must be cap­tured for this.

Con­tact form

If you send us inquiries using the con­tact form, your details from the inquiry form, includ­ing the con­tact details you entered in it, will be stored by us for the pur­pose of pro­cess­ing the inquiry and in case of fol­low-up ques­tions. We do not pass on these data with­out your consent.

The pro­cess­ing of the data entered in the con­tact form takes place exclu­sive­ly on the basis of your con­sent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this con­sent at any time. An e‑mail to us is suf­fi­cient to accom­plish this. The legal­i­ty of the data pro­cess­ing oper­a­tions car­ried out before the revo­ca­tion remains unaf­fect­ed by the revocation.

The data you enter in the con­tact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete them, revoke your con­sent to stor­age or when the data stor­age pur­pose no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Manda­to­ry legal pro­vi­sions — in par­tic­u­lar reten­tion peri­ods — remain unaffected.

Inquiries by e‑mail, phone or fax

If you con­tact us by e‑mail, tele­phone or fax, your request includ­ing all per­son­al data derived from it (name, request) will be stored and processed by us for the pur­pose of pro­cess­ing your request. We do not pass on these data with­out your consent.

These data are processed in accor­dance with art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is relat­ed to the per­for­mance of a con­tract or nec­es­sary for the exe­cu­tion of pre-con­trac­tu­al mea­sures. In all oth­er cas­es, the pro­cess­ing is based on your con­sent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) and/​or on our legit­i­mate inter­ests (art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR), as we have a legit­i­mate inter­est in effec­tive­ly pro­cess­ing the inquiries sent to us.

The data you send to us via con­tact requests will remain with us until you ask us to delete them, revoke your con­sent to stor­age or when the data stor­age pur­pose no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Manda­to­ry statu­to­ry pro­vi­sions — in par­tic­u­lar statu­to­ry reten­tion peri­ods — remain unaffected.

4. Plu­g­ins and tools

YouTube

Our web­site uses plu­g­ins from YouTube, oper­at­ed by Google. The oper­a­tor of the web­site is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cher­ry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

If you vis­it one of our pages fit­ted with a YouTube plug-in, a con­nec­tion to the YouTube servers will be estab­lished. The YouTube serv­er is informed which of our pages you have visited.

Fur­ther­more, YouTube can save var­i­ous cook­ies on your device. Aid­ed by these cook­ies, YouTube can receive infor­ma­tion about vis­i­tors to our web­site. This infor­ma­tion is used, among oth­er things, to col­lect video sta­tis­tics, improve usabil­i­ty and pre­vent fraud attempts. The cook­ies remain on your device until you delete them.

If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to relate your surf­ing behav­ior direct­ly to your per­son­al pro­file. You can pre­vent this by log­ging out of your YouTube account.

YouTube is used for the pur­pose of an appeal­ing pre­sen­ta­tion of our online offers. This rep­re­sents a legit­i­mate inter­est with­in the mean­ing of art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Fur­ther infor­ma­tion on han­dling user data can be found in YouTube’s pri­va­cy state­ment at: https://​poli​cies​.google​.com/​p​r​i​v​a​c​y​?​hl=de.

Google reCAPTCHA

We use Google reCAPTCHA” (here­inafter called reCAPTCHA”) on our web­sites. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphithe­ater Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

The pur­pose of reCAPTCHA is to check whether the data input on our web­sites (e.g. in a con­tact form) is from a per­son or from an auto­mat­ed pro­gram. To do this, reCAPTCHA ana­lyzes the behav­ior of the web­site vis­i­tor on the basis of var­i­ous char­ac­ter­is­tics. This analy­sis begins auto­mat­i­cal­ly as soon as the web­site vis­i­tor enters the web­site. For the analy­sis, reCAPTCHA eval­u­ates var­i­ous data (e.g. IP address, vis­i­tor’s length of stay on the web­site or mouse move­ments made by the user). The data col­lect­ed dur­ing the analy­sis are for­ward­ed to Google.

The reCAPTCHA analy­ses run entire­ly in the back­ground. Web­site vis­i­tors are not informed that an analy­sis is tak­ing place.

The data pro­cess­ing takes place in accor­dance with art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The web­site oper­a­tor has a legit­i­mate inter­est in pro­tect­ing his web offer­ings from abu­sive auto­mat­ed spy­ing and SPAM.

For more infor­ma­tion on Google reCAPTCHA and Google’s pri­va­cy pol­i­cy, see the fol­low­ing links: https://​poli​cies​.google​.com/pr…;and https://​www​.google​.com/​r​e​c​a​p​t​c​h​a​/​i​n​t​r​o​/​a​n​d​r​o​i​d​.html.

Vimeo

We have also inte­grat­ed videos from the provider Vimeo LLC with head­quar­ters at 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011.

Some of our web­sites con­tain videos from Vimeo. If you call up such a video via our web­site, a con­nec­tion to the Vimeo servers is estab­lished. This will trans­mit to the Vimeo serv­er which of our web­sites you have vis­it­ed. If you are logged in as a mem­ber of Vimeo, Vimeo will relate this infor­ma­tion to your per­son­al user account. When you click the start but­ton of a video, this infor­ma­tion can also be assigned to an exist­ing user account. You can pre­vent this assign­ment by log­ging out of your Vimeo user account before using our web­site and delet­ing the rel­e­vant Vimeo cookies.

We use this ser­vice with­in our online offer on the basis of a legit­i­mate inter­est — the analy­sis, opti­miza­tion and eco­nom­ic oper­a­tion of our online offer. The legal basis is art. 6 para. 1 lit. f.) GDPR.

Fur­ther infor­ma­tion on data pro­cess­ing and data pro­tec­tion by Vimeo can be found at https://​vimeo​.com/​p​r​ivacy.

Vimeo also calls up the Google Ana­lyt­ics track­er via an iFrame in which the video is called up. This is Vimeo’s own track­ing, to which we have no access. You can pre­vent track­ing by Google Ana­lyt­ics by using the deac­ti­va­tion tools that Google offers for some web browsers. In addi­tion, users can pre­vent the cap­ture and trans­mis­sion of data through Google Ana­lyt­ics that are relat­ed to their use of the web­site (incl. your IP address) to Google and the pro­cess­ing of these data via Google by down­load­ing and installing the brows­er plug-in avail­able under the fol­low­ing link: http://​tools​.google​.com/​d​l​p​a​g​e​/​g​a​o​p​t​o​u​t​?​hl=de.
