Data acquisition on our website
The provider of the pages automatically acquires and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Browser type and version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address (is anonymised after 7 days)
This data is not merged with other data sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 section 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
The web pages sometimes use so-called cookies for web analysis. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our web presence more user-friendly, effective and secure. 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 end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser the next time you visit us.
You can set your browser to inform you about the setting of cookies and to allow cookies only in individual cases, to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you provide there, will be stored by us 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 processing of data entered in the contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 section 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. To do so, informal notification by email to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out up to the time of revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent for storage, or the purpose for which the data was stored no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
Alternatively, it is possible to contact us by email. In this case the personal data of the user transmitted with the email will be stored. No data is passed on to third parties in relation to this. The data is used exclusively for processing the conversation.
In the case of an email, the required legitimate interest in processing the data exists in accordance with the legal basis of Art. 6 section 1 lit. f GDPR. If the email contact is aimed at the conclusion of a contract, Art. 6 section 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis for further processing.
The data transmitted to us by email will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent for storage, or the purpose for which the data was stored no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and that enable an analysis of your use of the website. 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.
The storage of Google Analytics cookies takes place on the basis of Art. 6 section 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behaviour in order to optimise both their website and their advertising.
We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. This means that your IP address will be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated 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 the website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.
Objection to data acquisition
You can prevent the acquisition of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent the acquisition of your data on future visits to this website: Disable Google Analytics.
Contract data processing
We have concluded a contract with Google for contract data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
Demographics in Google Analytics
This website uses the “demographics” function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be generated that contain information regarding the age, gender and interests of the website visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising by Google, as well as from visitor data from third parties. This data cannot be attributed to any specific person. You can disable this feature at any time by changing the ad settings in your Google Account, or generally prohibit Google Analytics from collecting your information as described in the section “Objection to data acquisition”.
Plugins and tools
Google web fonts
This site uses so-called web fonts, which are provided by Google, for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.
For this purpose, the browser you use must connect to Google’s servers. This enables Google to know that our website has been accessed via your IP address. We use Google web fonts in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our online presence. This represents a legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 section 1 lit. f GDPR.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font is used by your computer.
Creditor information system
The data controller has integrated the CIS (creditor information system) component in this website. CIS is a web system that provides creditors in insolvency proceedings with round-the-clock information on insolvency proceedings and offers the possibility of supporting creditors in preparations for lodging claims and electronically transferring the logged data to the responsible insolvency administrator. CIS is used to provide creditors with a comprehensive information service.
The CIS operating company is STP Portal GmbH, Lorenzstraße 29, 76135 Karlsruhe, Germany.
CIS sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. Setting the cookie facilitates user-related use of CIS. This is necessary, for example, in order to log in using the CIS PIN. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our web presence more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. The cookies used are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. You can set your browser to inform you about the setting of cookies and to allow cookies only in individual cases, to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of CIS will be limited.
Rights of data subjects
Revoking your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke any consent already given at any time. To do so, informal notification by email to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out up to the time of revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
If your personal data are processed on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 section 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR. If you wish to exercise your right of objection, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. When exercising your right of objection, please explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have done. We will then examine the situation and discontinue or adapt the data processing or show you our compelling reasons for continuing the processing which are worthy of protection.
Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of violations of data protection law, the data subject has a right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority in matters of data protection law is the state data protection commissioner of the federal state in which our company is based. A list of the data protection commissioners and their contact details can be found at the following link: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
Information, blocking, deletion
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to obtain information free of charge at any time about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to correct, block or delete this data. For this purpose and for any further questions regarding personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address provided in the legal notice.
