    The controller has integrated YouTube components on this website.  YouTube is an internet video portal that allows video publishers to freely watch video clips and other users for free viewing, rating and commenting.  YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, so that both complete film and television broadcasts, but also music videos, trailers or user-made videos via the Internet portal are available.

     

    The operating company of YouTube is the Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

     

    Each visit to one of the pages of this website operated by the controller and incorporating a YouTube component (YouTube video) automatically causes the Internet browser on the subject’s information technology system to be represented by the respective YouTube component to download an illustration of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube.  More information about YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/en/.  As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google will be aware of which specific bottom of our site the person is visiting.

     

    If the person is logged in to YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognizes by calling a sub-page that contains a YouTube video, which specific bottom of our website the affected person visits.  This information will be collected by YouTube and Google and associated with the affected person’s YouTube account.

     

    YouTube and Google will always receive information through the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is simultaneously logged into YouTube at the time of access to our website;  this happens regardless of whether the person clicks on a YouTube video or not.  If such information is not intended to be passed on to YouTube and Google by the person concerned, the latter may prevent the transmission from logging out of their YouTube account before calling our website.

     

    YouTube’s privacy policy, available at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/, identifies the collection, processing, and use of personally identifiable information by YouTube and Google.

     

    Legal basis of processing

    Art. 6 I lit.  A DS-GMO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose.  If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract of which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, in processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing shall be:  Art. 6 I lit.  b DS-GMO.  The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries about our products or services.  If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit.  c DS-GMO.  In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.  This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our premises were injured and his or her name, age, health insurance 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 I lit.  d DS GMOs are based.  Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit.  f DS GMOs are based.  Processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned prevail.  Such processing operations are particularly permitted because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator.  In that regard, it considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47, second sentence, DS-BER).

     

    Qualified interests in the processing being pursued by the controller or a third party

    Is the processing of personal data based on Article 6 I lit.  f DS-GMO is our legitimate interest in conducting our business for the benefit of all of our employees and our shareholders.

     

    Duration for which the personal data is stored

    The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period.  After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, if they are no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract.

     

    Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data;  Necessity for the conclusion of the contract;  Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data;  possible consequences of non-provision

    We clarify that the provision of personal information is in part required by law (such as tax regulations) or may result from contractual arrangements (such as details of the contractor).  Occasionally it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that an affected person provides us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us.  For example, the data subject is required to provide us with personal information when our company concludes a contract with her.  Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be closed.  Prior to any personal data being provided by the person concerned, the person concerned must contact one of our employees.  Our employee will inform the individual on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and what would be the consequence of the failure to provide the personal data.

     

    open-related data.

     

    Existence of automated decision-making

    As a responsible company, we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
