2. Collection and processing of personal data
As a rule, you can use online services that do not require payment or registration without providing personal information. In certain cases, however, we process the personal data listed in section 3. This is basically only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services. Furthermore, we process personal data in connection with the use of APX, if you give them to you, eg. For example, in the context of a registration, a competition, a request to us, an application or the conclusion of a subscription or because of a different legal basis (see section 4).

- Websites that the user accesses through our website
In addition, we process the following personal data if there is a contractual relationship between you and us or if you have transmitted the data to us in other ways: applicant data (name, address and communication data, application-relevant data).
4. Legal basis and purpose of the processing
We process your data solely on the basis of one or more of the possible legal foundations.
According to the GDPR, personal data may be processed in particular on the basis of a contract or for the performance of pre-contractual measures, in the presence of consent, on the basis of a legitimate interest or law and for the protection of vital or public interests.
In addition, we use your e-mail address to send you our newsletter if you have given us your prior express consent to receive a newsletter or advertising. In this case, we process your e-mail address in order to be able to deliver the newsletter as you wish (Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO). You may object to the use of your e-mail address for such purposes at any time in writing or in writing to email@example.com or Besselstraße 14 in 10969 Berlin with effect for the future without any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs.
On the Internet, each device for transmitting data needs a unique address, the so-called IP address. The at least temporary storage of the IP address is technically necessary to allow delivery of the website to the computer of the user. We shorten the IP addresses before any processing and process them only anonymously. There is no storage or further processing of the unabridged IP addresses. It also allows us to display regional content on all our websites that are accessed from a specific region. This so-called geo-localization, ie the assignment of a website call to the place of the call, takes place exclusively on the basis of the anonymized IP address and only up to the geographical level of the federal states / regions. In no case can a conclusion be drawn on the specific location of a user from the geographic information obtained in this way. Our servers also store your IP address for 14 days for your own security.
In the case of processing operations that are not covered by one or more of the aforementioned legal bases, the processing is carried out if it is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest and does not outweigh your interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms (Art. 6 (1) f DSGVO). A legitimate interest is to be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible. Based on the processing of personal data, our legitimate interest is, in particular, to conduct our business for the benefit of all of our employees and our shareholders.
Another legitimate interest is the functionality of the business processes that result in processing for internal administrative purposes (eg, address management/account).
You can object to the processing on the basis of a legitimate interest at any time (see section 13).
In the event that the data is processed for a purpose other than that specified in the data collection, a compatibility check will be carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (4) GDPR. Further processing is only permitted if the original purpose is compatible with the new purpose or permitted on the basis of a separate legal basis. Recognized compatible purposes are u. a. the assertion, exercise or defense of civil law claims unless there is overriding interest of the data subject. In this case, we will inform you about the change of purpose. If the new purpose is incompatible with the purpose stated in the survey, a new survey will be carried out on the basis of a new legal basis. Again, we will inform you about the change of purpose.
5. Place of processing
We ourselves do not transfer your personal data to countries outside the European Economic Area, except in cases where it is permitted under the GDPR. Whether third parties, with whom you have your own contractual relationship (such as with Facebook, if you have a Facebook account) transfer data to countries outside the European Economic Area, is beyond our knowledge and influence.
6. Origin of the data
In certain cases, we also receive data because you have consented to the transmission to us.
7. Disclosure of your data to third parties
We only transfer your personal data to third parties if the transmission is necessary in order to fulfill our contractual obligations to you and this can be seen at or together with another provider (eg in case of cooperation), we will pass it on in any other way legally entitled or obligated, or you have given us a corresponding consent.
To provide our services, selected personal information within our company may be shared with certain departments. This includes employees in the Accounting, Product Management, Marketing and IT departments.
In certain cases, we also use external service providers or affiliates who have been instructed by us to process data for us. Such service providers are contractually obligated by us according to the strict requirements of the DSGVO as a processor and may not re-use your data for any other purpose. Our contract processors provide the following services in particular for us: hosting, sending out newsletters and web / app analysis.
The transfer of data to processors takes place on the basis of Art. 28 (1) GDPR, alternatively based on our legitimate interest in the economic and technical advantages associated with the use of specialized contract processors, Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.
If we are legally obliged to do so or if this is permitted under data protection law, we transfer personal data to authorities, for example the police or the public prosecutor (Article 6 (1) (c) DSGVO). The disclosure of this data is based on our legitimate interest in the fight against abuse, the prosecution of crimes and the protection, assertion and enforcement of claims and that your rights and interests in the protection of your personal data do not predominate, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. , f DSGVO.

We have integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an internet advertising service that allows advertisers to run ads both on Google’s search engine and on the Google Network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-define keywords that will display an ad on Google’s search engine results only when the search engine retrieves a keyword-related search result. On the Google Network, ads are distributed to topic-related sites using an automated algorithm and according to pre-defined keywords. The operating company of Google AdWords Services is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. The purpose of Google AdWords is to promote our website by displaying interest-based advertising on third-party websites and in the search engine results of Google’s search engine and by displaying advertisements on our website. If an affected person reaches our website via a Google ad, a so-called conversion cookie is filed on Google’s information technology system by Google. What cookies are, has already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and is not used to identify the person concerned. If the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie will track whether certain sub-pages, for example, the shopping cart of an online shop system, were called on our website. The conversion cookie tells both us and Google whether an affected person who came to our website via an AdWords ad generated revenue, ie, completed or canceled a purchase.
The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to provide visitor statistics for our website.

The purpose of the cookie is to optimize and display advertising. The cookie is used, among other things, to serve and display user-relevant advertisements, as well as to generate reports on advertising campaigns or to improve them.

DoubleClick uses a cookie ID, which is required to complete the technical process. For example, the cookie ID is needed to display an ad in a browser. DoubleClick can also use the cookie ID to see which ads have already appeared in a browser to avoid duplication. It’s also possible for DoubleClick to track conversions with the cookie ID. For example, conversions are tracked when a user has previously seen a DoubleClick ad and then, with the same internet browser, makes a purchase on the advertiser’s site.
