3. Collection via technical tools and features
3.1 Functional purposes
When you use our Website for purely informational purposes, we collect and use the access data that your web browser automatically sends. The data is saved in a so-called log file on the web server. The data relates to the file request by the client, the date and time of the page request, the success or otherwise of the page request, the quantity of data transferred, the web browser type and version you are using, your operating system, the IP address assigned to you by your internet service provider, and the website from which you visited our Website. We require this data for the technical operation of our Website on the web server. The short-term storage of log files is also expedient to investigate attempted attacks on the web server or any potential misuse. We therefore have a legitimate interest in this data processing, namely providing our service to you on the basis of these technical and organisational requirements (Lawfulness of Processing, GDPR Art. 6, No. 1f). We delete the data once it is no longer needed for this purpose.
The following advertising cookies are used on our Website: Cookies are text files saved in your browser when you visit our Website, gathering information on your use of our Website.

3.2.2 SZMnG from INFOnline
Our website uses the “SZMnG” measuring process from INFOnline GmbH (https://www.INFOnline.de), based in Magdeburg, Germany, to determine statistical indicators on the usage of our website.
The following personal data are collected as part of the usage of SZMnG:
· IP address: IP addresses are shortened by 1 byte before any processing and are only used in an anonymised form.
· Randomly generated client identifier: Reach Measurement recognises computer systems using either a cookie identified as “ioam.de”, a “local storage object”, or a signature automatically generated by various data transmitted by your browser. This identifier uniquely identifies your browser as long as the cookie or local storage object is not deleted. Measurement of the data and subsequent allocation to the respective client identifier is therefore also possible even when you visit other websites that also use SZMnG. The validity of the cookie is limited to a maximum of 1 year.
The use of SZMnG is based on our legitimate interest in determining usage of our offering from the statistics produced, in particular the number of visits to our website, the number of website visitors, and their surfing behaviour, as measured by a common standard procedure, thereby obtaining comparable market-wide values. For all digital offerings which are members of the German Audit Bureau of Circulation (IVW – http://www.ivw.eu) or participate in studies conducted by the Working Group for Online Media Research (AGOF – http://www.agof.de), usage statistics are regularly turned into reach figures by AGOF and agma (http://www.agma-mmc.de) and published as “Unique User” performance indicators, and as “Page Impressions” and “Visits” performance indicators by IVW. These reach figures and statistics can be seen on the respective websites. The user categories form the basis for interest-based advertising focus and advertising measures and for a comparison of the commercial relevance and effectiveness of our website and the advertising media deployed; this can also be compared with third-party websites. Further, we have a legitimate interest in making pseudonymous data available to INFOnline, AGOF and IVW for the purposes of market research (AGOF, agma) and for statistical purposes (INFOnline, IVW). We also have a legitimate interest in making pseudonymous data available to INFOnline for the enhancement and provision of interest-based advertising.
The IP address and shortened IP address are not passed on. Data with client identifiers are passed on to the following AGOF service providers for AGOF studies:
· Kantar Deutschland GmbH (https://www.tns-infratest.com/)
· Ankordata GmbH & Co. KG (http://www.ankordata.de/homepage/)
· Interrogare GmbH (https://www.interrogare.de/)
The INFOnline GmbH measurement process used on this website determines usage data. This is done in order to record Page Impressions, Visits, Clients and other key indicators (e.g. qualified clients). The data so measured are used as follows:
· A so-called geolocalisation, i.e. the assignment of a website visit to a location, is carried out exclusively on the basis of the anonymised IP address and only to the geographical level of state or region. The geographical information so acquired can not, under any circumstances, be used to infer the exact location of a user.
· The usage data for a technical client (e.g. a browser on a device) are collated across multiple websites and stored in a database. This information is only used for technical evaluation of social information (age and gender) and transferred to AGOF’s service providers for further reach processing. Within the framework of AGOF studies, social characteristics are technically estimated based on a random sample, for allocation to the following categories: age, gender, nationality, work activity, family status, general information on household.
The complete IP address is not stored as part of the use of SZMnG. The shortened IP address is stored for a maximum of 60 days. Usage data in association with the unique identifer are stored for a maximum of 6 months.
The legal basis for the data processing as described is GDPR Art. 6 No. 1f. You may object to this data processing at any time. You may do so, for example, by visiting the website https://optout.ioam.de. You need to set a cookie in order to guarantee exclusion from the measurement. If you delete this cookie from your browser, you will need to repeat the opt-out process by visiting the linked web page again. Further information on data protection in the measurement process is available on the website of INFOnline GmbH (https://www.infonline.de), provider of the service, the data protection website of AGOF (http://www.agof.de/datenschutz-allgemein/?lang=en) and the data protection website of IVW (http://www.ivw.eu).
INFOnline GmbH processes data from our website as part of the usage of SZMnG exclusively on our behalf, in line with our instructions, and in compliance with applicable data protection law. To ensure that this is the case, we have concluded an order processing agreement with INFOnline GmbH, in accordance with GDPR Art. 28 No. 2.
3.2.3 Social media plug-ins
Social media netowrk plug-ins may be used on our website, enabling you to recommend the content of our website to friends and acquaintances. The plug-ins also enable you to interact with your contacts on the relevant social networks, evaluating our contents so that we can improve our web presence and make it more interesting for you as user. This constitutes or legitimate interest. The legal basis for the usage of the plug-ins is GDPR Art. 6 No. 1f.
Where plug-ins are used, they are, as a rule, identified with the logo of the respective service provider. When you load the page, in order to provide you with as much control of your data as possible, we display greyed-out images of the various functions rather than the actual social plug-ins. The exchange of data is only activated when you click the checkbox next to a symbol, thereby loading the respective plug-in. YouTube videos are also integrated in “Privacy-Enhanced Mode”, which means that your data, as a YouTube user, are not transferred until you actually play such a video. Only when you play the videos does the data exchange described take place. By clicking a plug-in or playing a video, you cause your web browser to establish a connection to the servers of the social network in question and send usage data to the provider of this social media network. In this case, data obtained when you retrieve a web page (cf. point 3.1) are transferred to the social media operator, in addition to the information that you have retrieved the page.
We have no influence on the data gathered and data processing carried out, and we are not aware of the complete scope of data collection, the scope of data processing, nor the periods for which data are stored. Further, we do not have any information on the deletion of data collected by the plug-in providers. The plug-in providers store data collected that relate to you as user profiles and use these for the purpose of advertising, market research and/or needs-driven website presentation and design. This analysis is used, in particular, to present needs-driven advertising and to inform other users of the social networks of your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the generation of these user profiles; to make use of this right, you must contact the respective plug-in providers. Data collection takes place regardless of whether or not you have an account with the plug-in providers and regardless of whether or not you are logged in to such an account. If you are logged in to a plug-in provider, your data as collected by the plug-in will be directly linked to your existing user account at the respective plug-in provider. If you activate the button and, for example, link the page, the plug-in provider stores this information in your user account and shares it with your contacts and, where appropriate, with the general public. We advise you to regularly log out of social networks once you have used them, but especially before activating a button, as this enables you to avoid the linkage of your visit to your profile with the plug-in provider.
Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by the plug-in provider, on your rights as the affected person, and on settings available to protect your privacy is available in data protection policies of the following social plug-in providers:

4. Passing on of data
In addition to the passing on of data for technical reasons, we also have to pass on some data to third parties in association with the usage of tools on our Website; this is done in strict compliance with applicable data protection legislation.
The maintenance and design of our online presence, in both technical and content terms, may make it necessary for external service providers to gain access to personal data (especially IT service providers). In such cases, personal data is treated exclusively in line with our express instructions and on the basis of an agreement on order processing, in accordance with GDPR Art. 28. In this agreement, the service provider guarantees to provide service to us in accordance with applicable data protection legislation. Should this result in the passing on of data to a service provider outside of Europe, we guarantee compliance with an appropriate data protection level in accordance with the provisions of GDPR Art. 45ff. The legislative framework expressly identifies the use of professional service providers as necessary for our legitimate interest in providing our services to you professionally and economically (Lawfulness of Processing, GDPR Art. 6, No. 1f). In such cases, we remain responsible for the protection of your data.
Furthermore, we reserve the right to reveal your personal data when we are demonstrably legally obliged to do so or when regulatory authorities and/or law enforcement agencies make a legally correct demand that we do so.
5. Data security
We have taken technical and organisation measures, in the sense of GDPR Art. 32, to protect your data from loss and unauthorised third-party access. We continually evaluate and improve these security measures in line with technological development.
6. Rights of affected persons (information on stored data, correction of data, revocation, blocking, deletion, limitation, transferability) and contact persons
You may obtain information on the scope, origin and recipients of stored data and the purpose of data storage at any time (GDPR Art. 15). You may require the correction of inaccurate data at any time (GDPR Art. 16). You are also entitled to receive a copy of all personal data related to you in a common structured machine-readable format (GDPR Art. 20). You may disallow or revoke the use of your personal data for the future (GDPR Art. 21) and require the partial or complete deletion (GDPR At. 17), processing limitation or blockage (GDPR Art. 18) of your data. We will examine such a request and comply, insofar as no other legal basis for ongoing data processing exists. You shall be informed of the outcome. Furthermore, you are entitled to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, e.g. with the Hamburg Data Protection and Information Freedom Compliance Officers, Klosterwall 6, 20095 Hamburg, if you are of the opinion that the processing of personal data affecting you violates the provisions of the GDPR. As a rule, you are not required to observe a specific format in the exercise of your rights as an affected person. You may, for example, send us an email via firstname.lastname@example.org.
