Privacy Policy
We are very delighted that you have shown interest in our enterprise. Data protection is
of a particularly high priority for the management of the NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES
LIMITED. The use of the Internet pages of the NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED is
possible without any indication of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use
special enterprise services via our website, processing of personal data could become
necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis
for such processing, we generally obtain consent from the data subject.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or
telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data
Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data
protection regulations applicable to the NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED. By
means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise would like to inform the general
public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and
process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this data protection
declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.
As the controller, the NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED has implemented numerous
technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of
personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data
transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may not be
guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via
alternative means, e.g. by telephone.
1. Definitions
The data protection declaration of the NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED is based
on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data
Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be legible and
understandable for the general public, as well as our customers and business partners.
To ensure this, we would like to first explain the terminology used.
In this data protection declaration, we use, inter alia, the following terms:
a) Personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural
person (“data subject”). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified,
directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an
identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors
specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social
identity of that natural person.
b) Data subject
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is
processed by the controller responsible for the processing.
c) Processing
Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal
data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as
collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration,
retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise
making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of
limiting their processing in the future.
e) Profiling
Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of
the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural
person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person's
performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests,
reliability, behaviour, location or movements.
f) Pseudonymisation
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the
personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use
of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept
separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that
the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
g) Controller or controller responsible for the processing
Controller or controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal
person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others,
determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the
purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State
law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by
Union or Member State law.
h) Processor
Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which
processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
i) Recipient
Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to
which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However,
public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular
inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as
recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in
compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of
the processing.
j) Third party
Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than
the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority
of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.
k) Consent
Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and
unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes by which he or she, by a
statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of
personal data relating to him or her.
2. Name and Address of the controller
Controller for the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), other data
protection laws applicable in Member states of the European Union and other provisions
related to data protection is:
NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED

3. Cookies
The Internet pages of the NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED use cookies. Cookies
are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.
Many Internet sites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID.
A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through
which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in
which the cookie was stored. This allows visited Internet sites and servers to differentiate
the individual browser of the dats subject from other Internet browsers that contain
other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified using the
unique cookie ID.
Through the use of cookies, the NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED can provide the
users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without
the cookie setting.
By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized with
the user in mind. Cookies allow us, as previously mentioned, to recognize our website
users. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to utilize our website.
The website user that uses cookies, e.g. does not have to enter access data each time
the website is accessed, because this is taken over by the website, and the cookie is thus
stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart
in an online shop. The online store remembers the articles that a customer has placed in
the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.
The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by
means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus
permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be
deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible
in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in
the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.
4. Collection of general data and information
The website of the NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED collects a series of general
data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This
general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the
browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing
system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called
referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6)
an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the
accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in
the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, the NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES
LIMITED does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information
is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of
our website as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our
information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law
enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case
of a cyber-attack. Therefore, the NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED analyzes
anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the
data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of
protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files
are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
5. Registration on our website
The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the controller with the
indication of personal data. Which personal data are transmitted to the controller is
determined by the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data
entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the
controller, and for his own purposes. The controller may request transfer to one or more
processors (e.g. a parcel service) that also uses personal data for an internal purpose
which is attributable to the controller.
By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address—assigned by the Internet
service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject—date, and time of the registration
are also stored. The storage of this data takes place against the background that this is
the only way to prevent the misuse of our services, and, if necessary, to make it possible
to investigate committed offenses. Insofar, the storage of this data is necessary to secure
the controller. This data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a statutory
obligation to pass on the data, or if the transfer serves the aim of criminal prosecution.
The registration of the data subject, with the voluntary indication of personal data, is
intended to enable the controller to offer the data subject contents or services that may
only be offered to registered users due to the nature of the matter in question.
Registered persons are free to change the personal data specified during the registration
at any time, or to have them completely deleted from the data stock of the controller.
The data controller shall, at any time, provide information upon request to each data
subject as to what personal data are stored about the data subject. In addition, the data
controller shall correct or erase personal data at the request or indication of the data
subject, insofar as there are no statutory storage obligations. The entirety of the
controller’s employees are available to the data subject in this respect as contact
persons.
6. Subscription to our newsletters
On the website of the NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED, users are given the
opportunity to subscribe to our enterprise's newsletter. The input mask used for this
purpose determines what personal data are transmitted, as well as when the newsletter
is ordered from the controller.
The NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED informs its customers and business partners
regularly by means of a newsletter about enterprise offers. The enterprise's newsletter
may only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail
address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter shipping. A confirmation e-
mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered by a data subject for the first time for
newsletter shipping, for legal reasons, in the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation
e-mail is used to prove whether the owner of the e-mail address as the data subject is
authorized to receive the newsletter.
During the registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer
system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject at
the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the registration. The
collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-
mail address of a data subject at a later date, and it therefore serves the aim of the legal
protection of the controller.
The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will only be used
to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-
mail, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a
registration in question, as this could be the case in the event of modifications to the
newsletter offer, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances. There will be no
transfer of personal data collected by the newsletter service to third parties. The
subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by the data subject at any time. The
consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given for shipping
the newsletter, may be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revocation of consent, a
corresponding link is found in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the
newsletter at any time directly on the website of the controller, or to communicate this to
the controller in a different way.
7. Newsletter-Tracking
The newsletter of the NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED contains so-called tracking
pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which are sent
in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis
of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking
pixel, the NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED may see if and when an e-mail was
opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were called up by data subjects.
Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are
stored and analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the shipping of the newsletter,
as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the
data subject. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Data subjects
are at any time entitled to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent issued
by means of the double-opt-in procedure. After a revocation, these personal data will be
deleted by the controller. The NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED automatically
regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.
8. Contact possibility via the website
The website of the NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED contains information that
enables a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with
us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail
address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the
personal data transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored. Such personal
data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored
for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no transfer of this
personal data to third parties.
9. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data
The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for
the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the
European legislator or other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller is
subject to.
If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European
legislator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data are routinely blocked
or erased in accordance with legal requirements.
10. Rights of the data subject
a) Right of confirmation
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain
from the controller the confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning
him or her are being processed. If a data subject wishes to avail himself of this
right of confirmation, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the
controller.
b) Right of access
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain
from the controller free information about his or her personal data stored at any

information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and
envisaged consequences of such processing for the data subject.
Furthermore, the data subject shall have a right to obtain information as to
whether personal data are transferred to a third country or to an international
organisation. Where this is the case, the data subject shall have the right to be
informed of the appropriate safeguards relating to the transfer.
If a data subject wishes to avail himself of this right of access, he or she may, at
any time, contact any employee of the controller.
c) Right to rectification
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain
from the controller without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal
data concerning him or her. Taking into account the purposes of the processing,
the data subject shall have the right to have incomplete personal data completed,
including by means of providing a supplementary statement.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to rectification, he or she may, at any
time, contact any employee of the controller.
d) Right to erasure (Right to be forgotten)
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain
from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning him or her without
undue delay, and the controller shall have the obligation to erase personal data
without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies, as long as the
processing is not necessary:
The personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for
which they were collected or otherwise processed.
The data subject withdraws consent to which the processing is based
according to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, or point (a) of Article 9(2)
of the GDPR, and where there is no other legal ground for the processing.
The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the
GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or

The personal data have been unlawfully processed.
The personal data must be erased for compliance with a legal obligation in
Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
The personal data have been collected in relation to the offer of information
society services referred to in Article 8(1) of the GDPR.
If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to request
the erasure of personal data stored by the NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED,
he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller. An employee
of NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED shall promptly ensure that the erasure
request is complied with immediately.
Where the controller has made personal data public and is obliged pursuant to
Article 17(1) to erase the personal data, the controller, taking account of available
technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including
technical measures, to inform other controllers processing the personal data that
the data subject has requested erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy
or replication of, those personal data, as far as processing is not required. An
employees of the NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED will arrange the
necessary measures in individual cases.
e) Right of restriction of processing
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain

period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
The processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the
personal data and requests instead the restriction of their use instead.
The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the
processing, but they are required by the data subject for the establishment,
exercise or defence of legal claims.
The data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the
GDPR pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the
controller override those of the data subject.
If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to
request the restriction of the processing of personal data stored by the
NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED, he or she may at any time contact any
employee of the controller. The employee of the NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES
LIMITED will arrange the restriction of the processing.
f) Right to data portability
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator, to
receive the personal data concerning him or her, which was provided to a
controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. He or
she shall have the right to transmit those data to another controller without
hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, as
long as the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) of
the GDPR or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, or on a contract pursuant to
point (b) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, and the processing is carried out by
automated means, as long as the processing is not necessary for the performance
of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority
vested in the controller.
Furthermore, in exercising his or her right to data portability pursuant to Article
20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject shall have the right to have personal data
transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible and
when doing so does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

6(1) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED shall no longer process the personal
data in the event of the objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling
legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and
freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal
claims.
If the NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED processes personal data for direct
marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to
processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing. This applies
to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If the data
subject objects to the NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED to the processing for
direct marketing purposes, the NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED will no
longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her
particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her
by the NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED for scientific or historical research
purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless
the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of
public interest.
In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may contact any
employee of the NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED. In addition, the data
subject is free in the context of the use of information society services, and
notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to use his or her right to object by
automated means using technical specifications.
h) Automated individual decision-making, including
profiling
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator not to be
subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling,
which produces legal effects concerning him or her, or similarly significantly affects
him or her, as long as the decision (1) is not is necessary for entering into, or the
performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) is
not authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and
which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and
freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is not based on the data subject's explicit
consent.
If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract
between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) it is based on the data
subject's explicit consent, the NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED shall
implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms
and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part
of the controller, to express his or her point of view and contest the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated individual
decision-making, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the
NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED.
i) Right to withdraw data protection consent
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to
withdraw his or her consent to processing of his or her personal data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw the consent, he or she
may, at any time, contact any employee of the NEUROTRADE TECHNOLOGIES
LIMITED.
11. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Facebook
On this website, the controller has integrated components of the enterprise Facebook.
Facebook is a social network.
A social network is a place for social meetings on the Internet, an online community,
which usually allows users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual
space. A social network may serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and
experiences, or enable the Internet community to provide personal or business-related
information. Facebook allows social network users to include the creation of private
profiles, upload photos, and network through friend requests.
The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA
94025, United States. If a person lives outside of the United States or Canada, the
controller is the Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour,
Dublin 2, Ireland.
With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet website, which is
operated by the controller and into which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-ins) was
integrated, the web browser on the information technology system of the data subject is
automatically prompted to download display of the corresponding Facebook component
from Facebook through the Facebook component. An overview of all the Facebook Plug-
ins may be accessed under https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. During the
course of this technical procedure, Facebook is made aware of what specific sub-site of
our website was visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook, Facebook detects with
every call-up to our website by the data subject—and for the entire duration of their stay
on our Internet site—which specific sub-site of our Internet page was visited by the data
subject. This information is collected through the Facebook component and associated
with the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on
one of the Facebook buttons integrated into our website, e.g. the "Like" button, or if the
data subject submits a comment, then Facebook matches this information with the
personal Facebook user account of the data subject and stores the personal data.
Facebook always receives, through the Facebook component, information about a visit to
our website by the data subject, whenever the data subject is logged in at the same time
on Facebook during the time of the call-up to our website. This occurs regardless of
whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If such a
transmission of information to Facebook is not desirable for the data subject, then he or
she may prevent this by logging off from their Facebook account before a call-up to our
website is made.
The data protection guideline published by Facebook, which is available at
https://facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection,
processing and use of personal data by Facebook. In addition, it is explained there what
setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition,
different configuration options are made available to allow the elimination of data
transmission to Facebook. These applications may be used by the data subject to
eliminate a data transmission to Facebook.
12. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google Analytics
(with anonymization function)
On this website, the controller has integrated the component of Google Analytics (with
the anonymizer function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is
the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites.
A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person
has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for
what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the
optimization of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet
advertising.
The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy,
Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.
For the web analytics through Google Analytics the controller uses the application "_gat.
_anonymizeIp". By means of this application the IP address of the Internet connection of
the data subject is abridged by Google and anonymised when accessing our websites
from a Member State of the European Union or another Contracting State to the
Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the traffic on our website.
Google uses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our
website and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to
provide other services concerning the use of our Internet site for us.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data
subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie,
Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the
individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and into which a
Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information
technology system of the data subject will automatically submit data through the Google
Analytics component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of
commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise
Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the data
subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks,
and subsequently create commission settlements.
The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location
from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website by the data
subject. With each visit to our Internet site, such personal data, including the IP address
of the Internet access used by the data subject, will be transmitted to Google in the
United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States
of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical
procedure to third parties.
The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our
website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used
and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet
browser used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the
information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by
Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software
programs.
In addition, the data subject has the possibility of objecting to a collection of data that
are generated by Google Analytics, which is related to the use of this website, as well as
the processing of this data by Google and the chance to preclude any such. For this
purpose, the data subject must download a browser add-on under the link
https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and install it. This browser add-on tells Google
Analytics through a JavaScript, that any data and information about the visits of Internet
pages may not be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-
ons is considered an objection by Google. If the information technology system of the
data subject is later deleted, formatted, or newly installed, then the data subject must
reinstall the browser add-ons to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on was
uninstalled by the data subject or any other person who is attributable to their sphere of
competence, or is disabled, it is possible to execute the reinstallation or reactivation of
the browser add-ons.
Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be
retrieved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and under
http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Google Analytics is further explained
under the following Link https://www.google.com/analytics/.
13. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google+
On this website, the controller has integrated the Google+ button as a component.
Google+ is a so-called social network. A social network is a social meeting place on the
Internet, an online community, which usually allows users to communicate with each
other and interact in a virtual space. A social network may serve as a platform for the
exchange of opinions and experiences, or enable the Internet community to provide
personal or business-related information. Google+ allows users of the social network to
include the creation of private profiles, upload photos and network through friend
requests.
The operating company of Google+ is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain
View, CA 94043-1351, UNITED STATES.
With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the
controller and on which a Google+ button has been integrated, the Internet browser on
the information technology system of the data subject automatically downloads a display
of the corresponding Google+ button of Google through the respective Google+ button
component. During the course of this technical procedure, Google is made aware of what
specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject. More detailed
information about Google+ is available under https://developers.google.com/+/.
If the data subject is logged in at the same time to Google+, Google recognizes with
each call-up to our website by the data subject and for the entire duration of his or her
stay on our Internet site, which specific sub-pages of our Internet page were visited by
the data subject. This information is collected through the Google+ button and Google
matches this with the respective Google+ account associated with the data subject.
If the data subject clicks on the Google+ button integrated on our website and thus gives
a Google+ 1 recommendation, then Google assigns this information to the personal
Google+ user account of the data subject and stores the personal data. Google stores the
Google+ 1 recommendation of the data subject, making it publicly available in
accordance with the terms and conditions accepted by the data subject in this regard.
Subsequently, a Google+ 1 recommendation given by the data subject on this website
together with other personal data, such as the Google+ account name used by the data
subject and the stored photo, is stored and processed on other Google services, such as
search-engine results of the Google search engine, the Google account of the data
subject or in other places, e.g. on Internet pages, or in relation to advertisements.
Google is also able to link the visit to this website with other personal data stored on
Google. Google further records this personal information with the purpose of improving
or optimizing the various Google services.
Through the Google+ button, Google receives information that the data subject visited
our website, if the data subject at the time of the call-up to our website is logged in to
Google+. This occurs regardless of whether the data subject clicks or doesn’t click on the
Google+ button.
If the data subject does not wish to transmit personal data to Google, he or she may
prevent such transmission by logging out of his Google+ account before calling up our
website.
Further information and the data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under
https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/. More references from Google about
the Google+ 1 button may be obtained under https://developers.google.com/

14. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google-AdWords
On this website, the controller has integrated Google AdWords. Google AdWords is a
service for Internet advertising that allows the advertiser to place ads in Google search
engine results and the Google advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser
to pre-define specific keywords with the help of which an ad on Google's search results
only then displayed, when the user utilizes the search engine to retrieve a keyword-
relevant search result. In the Google Advertising Network, the ads are distributed on
relevant web pages using an automatic algorithm, taking into account the previously
defined keywords.
The operating company of Google AdWords is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy,
Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, UNITED STATES.
The purpose of Google AdWords is the promotion of our website by the inclusion of
relevant advertising on the websites of third parties and in the search engine results of
the search engine Google and an insertion of third-party advertising on our website.
If a data subject reaches our website via a Google ad, a conversion cookie is filed on the
information technology system of the data subject through Google. The definition of
cookies is explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after 30 days and is not
used to identify the data subject. If the cookie has not expired, the conversion cookie is
used to check whether certain sub-pages, e.g, the shopping cart from an online shop
system, were called up on our website. Through the conversion cookie, both Google and
the controller can understand whether a person who reached an AdWords ad on our
website generated sales, that is, executed or canceled a sale of goods.
The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by
Google to create visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are used in order to
determine the total number of users who have been served through AdWords ads to
ascertain the success or failure of each AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads in
the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive
information from Google that could identify the data subject.
The conversion cookie stores personal information, e.g. the Internet pages visited by the
data subject. Each time we visit our Internet pages, personal data, including the IP
address of the Internet access used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the
United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States
of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical
procedure to third parties.
The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as
stated above, by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus
permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used
would also prevent Google from placing a conversion cookie on the information
technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie set by Google AdWords may
be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
The data subject has a possibility of objecting to the interest based advertisement of
Google. Therefore, the data subject must access from each of the browsers in use the
link www.google.de/settings/ads and set the desired settings.
Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be
retrieved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.
19. Legal basis for the processing
Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we
obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is
necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the
case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or
to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The
same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-
contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or
services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal
data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on
Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to
protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be
the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health
insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital
or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally,
processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used
for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal
grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued
by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the
interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection
of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they
have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a
legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller
(Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).
20. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party
Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate
interest is to carry out our business in favor of the well-being of all our employees and
the shareholders.
21. Period for which the personal data will be stored
The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective
statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is
routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or
the initiation of a contract.
22. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement;
Requirement necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation of the data
subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to
provide such data
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax
regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the
contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data
subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us.
The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our
company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the personal data would
have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded.
Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact any
employee. The employee clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the
personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the
contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the
consequences of non-provision of the personal data.
23. Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
