Google DoubleClick
Nature and scope of processing
We have integrated components of DoubleClick by Google on our website. DoubleClick is a brand of Google, under which mainly special online marketing solutions are marketed to advertising agencies and publishers. DoubleClick by Google transfers data to the DoubleClick server with each impression as well as with clicks or other activities.
Each of these data transfers triggers a cookie request to the browser of the data subject. If the browser accepts this request, DoubleClick sets a cookie in your browser.
DoubleClick uses a cookie ID, which is required to handle the technical process. The cookie ID is required, for example, to display an advertisement in a browser. DoubleClick can also use the cookie ID to record which advertisements have already been displayed in a browser in order to avoid duplicate placements. Furthermore, the cookie ID enables DoubleClick to record conversions. Conversions are recorded, for example, if a DoubleClick ad was previously displayed to a user and the user subsequently makes a purchase on the advertiser's website using the same internet browser.

A DoubleClick cookie does not contain personal data, but may contain additional campaign identifiers. A campaign identifier serves to identify the campaigns with which you have already been in contact on other websites. As part of this service, Google obtains knowledge of data that Google also uses to generate commission statements. Among other things, Google can track that you have clicked on certain links on our website. In this case, your data is passed on to the operator of DoubleClick, Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Further information and the applicable privacy policy of DoubleClick by Google can be found at policies.google.com/privacy.


Purpose and legal basis
We process your data with the help of the Double-Click cookie for the purpose of optimizing and displaying advertising based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO and § 25 Para. 1 TTDSG. You give your consent by setting the use of cookies (cookie banner / Consent Manager), with which you can also declare your revocation at any time with effect for the future pursuant to Art. 7 para. 3 DSGVO. The cookie is used, among other things, to place and display user-relevant advertising and to create reports on advertising campaigns or to improve them. Furthermore, the cookie is used to avoid multiple displays of the same advertising. Each time you call up one of the individual pages of our website on which a DoubleClick component has been integrated, your browser is automatically prompted by the respective DoubleClick component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions. There is no legal or contractual obligation to provide your data. If you do not give us your consent, a visit to our website is possible without restriction, but not all functions may be fully available.

9.    Social media presence
In order to be able to present our company in the best possible way and to communicate with you as a user, customer or interested party and to inform you about our offered services, we make use of our presence in social networks. When using social networks, data is processed outside the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). An equivalent level of data protection as exists in the EU cannot be guaranteed in all countries outside the EU.
In this context, it may lead to risks for you as a user if the transmitted data is processed in so-called third countries with an inadequate level of data protection.
This makes it more difficult to enforce known user rights. In addition, your data may not be processed in your interest by the provider in the third country. 
We only transfer personal data to third countries for which an adequate level of protection has been confirmed or if the transfer of personal data can be ensured by contractual agreements or other suitable guarantees.
In addition to the respective provider of a social network, we also collect and process personal user data on so-called "fan pages". With this notice, we inform you about which data we collect from you on our social media sites, how we use it and how you can object to the use of the data. The respective data processing purposes and data categories   are detailed below.
The social media activities operated by us and detailed below are carried out on the basis of a balancing of interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f) DSGVO.
To achieve this, cookies are used, which record user behavior and enable profiling of the user.
A concrete list of the purposes for which the user data is processed can be found in the data protection notices of the respective providers. By making the appropriate settings in your user account, you can limit the profiling, at least to a certain extent. For the exact procedure, please read the corresponding data protection information of the respective provider.

We operates profiles on the listed platforms in order to draw attention to products and service offers and to interact with customers, interested parties and other users of the platform. In this context, the platform operators also use certain data that they have collected from users of the platform (e.g., whether a photo on a profile was marked with "Like" or commented on) to create aggregated usage statistics and make them available to the respective operators of the profile (so-called "Insights" or "Analytics"). We as profile operators also receive such usage statistics. The information that we receive as profile operators does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about individual users. The profile operator itself has no access to personal data that the platform operators process for the creation of usage statistics. The respective platform operator alone determines which data is processed for these purposes, and in what manner. As the profile operator, we can neither legally nor actually influence the processing by the platform operators.

For processing in connection with the compilation of usage statistics, we and the respective platform operator shall be deemed joint controllers within the meaning of Art. 26 DSGVO.
Where possible, joint responsibility agreements are in place with the respective platform operators.
Beyond that, data processing by us as profile operator only takes place to a very limited extent:

  • Processing of usernames and comments that are deleted due to violation of netiquette. These will be kept on file for possible proof in the event of legal disputes within the statute of limitations.
  • Processing of usernames and individual messages when you contact us via messenger service
  • Processing of user names when participating in competitions. The relevant conditions of participation apply in this regard.
  • Processing of usernames and postings in the context of inquiries and, if necessary, obtaining consent to re-post images

For these purposes, we generally only process your name, message content, comment content, and the profile information you "publicly" provide.

10.    Rights of the data subject
You have the right:

  • in accordance with Art. 15 DSGVO to request information about your personal data processed by us. In particular, you can request information about the processing purposes, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the planned  retention period, the existence of a right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or objection, the existence of a right of complaint, the origin of your data if it has not been collected by us, as well as the existence of automated decision-making including profiling and, if applicable, meaningful information about its details;
  • in accordance with Art. 16 DSGVO to immediately demand the correction of incorrect or completion of your personal data stored by us;
  • pursuant to Art. 17 DSGVO to request the deletion of your personal data stored by us, unless the processing is necessary for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims;
  • to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data in accordance with Art. 18 DSGVO, insofar as the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, the processing is unlawful, but you object to its deletion and we no longer require the data, but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or you have objected to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 DSGVO;
  • pursuant to Art. 20 DSGVO to receive your personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request the transfer to another controller (data portability);
  • to revoke your consent at any time in accordance with Art. 7 (3) DSGVO. This has the consequence that we are no longer allowed to continue the data processing based on this consent for the future and
  • to complain to an authority in accordance with Art. 77 DSGVO. As a rule, you can contact the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence or workplace or our company headquarters.

11.    Right of Withdrawal
If your personal data is processed on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO, you have the right to object the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO, provided that there are grounds for doing so that arise from your particular situation or the objection is directed against direct advertising. In the latter case, you have a general right of withdrawal, which is implemented by us without specifying a particular situation.
If you wish to exercise your right of revocation or withdrawal, simply send an e-mail to Datenschutz@ich-will-keinen-spamvarta-ag.com.

12.    Transmission of your personal data
The transmission of your personal data takes place as described below.
Personal Data is transmitted if we are entitled or obliged to disclose data due to statutory provisions and/or official or court orders. In particular, this may involve the transmission of information for the purposes of criminal prosecution, the prevention of danger or the enforcement of intellectual property rights.
Insofar as your data is passed on to service providers to the extent necessary, they will only have access to your personal data to the extent necessary to fulfill their tasks. These service providers are obliged to treat your personal data in accordance with the applicable data protection laws, in particular the DSGVO. Insofar as your personal data is processed on our behalf on the basis of order processing contracts pursuant to Art. 28 DSGVO, we ensure that the processing of personal data is carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation.
We make a point of processing your data within the EU / EEA. However, we may use service providers that process data outside the EU / EEA. In these cases, we ensure that an appropriate level of data protection comparable to the standards within the EU is established at the recipient before transferring your personal data. This can be achieved, for example, via EU standard contracts or Binding Corporate Rules or special agreements to whose regulations the company may be subject.

13.    Data security
We secure our website by technical and organizational measures against loss, destruction, access, modification or distribution of your data by unauthorized persons.
In particular, your personal data is transmitted encrypted with us. We use the SSL/TLS (Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security) coding system for this. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.

14.    Retention period for the personal data
With regard to the retention period, we delete personal data as soon as their storage/retention is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the original purpose and there are no longer any legal retention periods. The statutory retention periods form the criterion for the final duration of the retention of personal data. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted. In the case of the existence of retention periods, a restriction of the processing takes place in the form of blocking the data.

15.    References and links
When calling up Internet pages referred to within the framework of our website, information such as name, address, e-mail address, browser properties, etc. may be requested again. This privacy policy does not regulate the collection, disclosure or handling of personal data by third parties.
Third party service providers may have different and their own rules for handling the collection, processing and use of personal data. It is therefore advisable to inform yourself on the websites of third parties about their practices regarding the handling of personal data before entering personal data.
