Cookies and right to object in direct mail
“Cookies” are small files that are stored on users’ computers. Different information can be stored within the cookies. A cookie is primarily used to store the information about a user (or the device on which the cookie is stored) during or after his visit to an online offer. Temporary cookies, or “session cookies” or “transient cookies”, are cookies that are deleted after a user leaves an online service and closes his browser. In such a cookie, e.g. the contents of a shopping cart in an online shop or a login status are saved. The term “permanent” or “persistent” refers to cookies that remain stored even after the browser has been closed. Thus, e.g. the login status will be saved if users visit it after several days. Likewise, in such a cookie the interests of the users can be stored, which are used for range measurement or marketing purposes. A “third-party cookie” refers to cookies that are offered by providers other than the person who manages the online offer (otherwise, if it is only their cookies, this is called “first-party cookies”).
If users do not want cookies stored on their computer, they will be asked to disable the option in their browser’s system settings. Saved cookies can be deleted in the system settings of the browser. The exclusion of cookies can lead to functional restrictions of this online presence.
Deletion of data
According to legal requirements in Germany, the storage takes place in particular for 10 years according to §§ 147 Abs. 1 AO, 257 Abs. 1 Nr. 1 and 4, Abs. 4 HGB (books, records, management reports, accounting documents, trading books, relevant for taxation Documents, etc.) and 6 years in accordance with § 257 (1) no. 2 and 3, para. 4 HGB (commercial letters).
Getting in contact
When contacting me (for example, by contact form, e-mail, telephone or via social media) the information provided by the user for processing the contact request and its processing acc. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. (in the context of contractual / pre-contractual relationships), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. (other requests) DSGVO processed. User information can be stored in a Customer Relationship Management System (“CRM System”) or comparable request organization.
I delete the requests, if they are no longer required. I check the requirement every two years; Furthermore, the legal archiving obligations apply.
Collection of access data and log files
On the basis of my legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO Data on every access to the server on which this service is located (so-called server log files). The access data includes name of the retrieved web page, file, date and time of retrieval, amount of data transferred, message about successful retrieval, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider ,
Logfile information is stored for security purposes (for example, to investigate abusive or fraudulent activities) for a maximum of 14 days and then deleted. Data whose further retention is required for evidential purposes shall be exempted from the cancellation until final clarification of the incident.
Range measurement with Matomo
As part of Matomo’s range analysis, the following data is processed on the basis of my legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of my online presence within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. DSGVO): the browser type you are using and the browser version, the operating system you are using, your country of origin, the date and time of the server request, the number of visits, how long you have spent on the site, and the external links you have activated. The IP address of the users is anonymized before being saved.
Users can object to the anonymized data collection by the program Matomo at any time with effect for the future by clicking on the link below. In this case, a so-called opt-out cookie is stored in your browser, with the result that Matomo no longer collects session data. If users delete their cookies, however, this means that the opt-out cookie is also deleted and must therefore be reactivated by the users.
The logs with the data of the users will be deleted after 6 months at the latest.
Online presence in social media
I maintain online presences within social networks and platforms in order to communicate with interested users and users and to inform them about my interests.
I would point out that data from users outside the European Union can be processed. This may result in risks for the users because e.g. enforcement of user rights could be made more difficult. As for US providers certified under the Privacy Shield, I note that they are committed to respecting EU privacy standards.
Furthermore, the data of the users are usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. Thus, e.g. user profiles are created from the user behavior and the resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles can in turn be used to e.g. Place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that are allegedly in line with users’ interests. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the computers of the users, in which the user behavior and the interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, in the usage profiles, data can also be stored independently of the devices used by the users (in particular if the users are members of the respective platforms and logged in to them).
The processing of the personal data of users is based on my legitimate interests in an effective information of users and communication with users in accordance with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO. If the users are asked by the respective providers for a consent to the data processing (that is, they declare their agreement, for example, by ticking a check box or confirming a button), the legal basis of the processing is Art. 6 para. a., Art. 7 GDPR.
For a detailed description of the respective processing and the possibilities of contradiction (opt-out), I refer to the following linked information from the provider.
Also in the case of request for information and the assertion of user rights, I point out that these can be most effectively asserted by the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information. If you still need help, then you can contact me.

Integration of services and contents of third parties
On the basis of my legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. DSGVO), I make use of content or services offered by third-party providers in order to provide their content and services such as include videos or fonts (collectively referred to as “content”).
This always presupposes that the third-party providers of this content perceive the IP address of the users, since they could not send the content to their browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. I strive to use only those content whose respective providers use the IP address only to deliver the content. Third parties may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also referred to as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. The “pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and may include, but is not limited to, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring web pages, visit time, and other information regarding the use of my online presence.
