III. Use of personal data
 
A. For mandate processing
 
For mandate processing, we collect, store and process electronically the data of all persons involved provided to us by you and which are necessary for the execution of the relevant transaction in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a and b GDPR. These data include names, contact data, address data as well as transaction-related content information about the respective facts. 
 
Service providers in countries such as the US or in the countries of the European Economic Area are subject to data protection, which generally does not protect personal data to the same extent as is the case in the Member States of the European Union. Data transfers to third countries outside the European Union / European Economic Area therefore only take place if:

1. you in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR have given us your express consent or
2. if
– the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR is required to assert, exercise or defend legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have a predominantly legitimate interest in not disclosing your data,
– the transfer pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c GDPR is a statutory obligation to which we are subject, or
– this is permitted by law and, in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b GDPR is required for the settlement of contractual relationships with you
 
and, as far as your data is processed in a country that does not have a recognized level of data protection such as the European Union, we will use contractual arrangements or other recognized tools to ensure that your personal data is adequately protected.
 
 
B. When visiting our website
 
The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. Insofar as personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our website, this is always done, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis and solely for the purpose of providing the pages, enabling information about our company or contacting us (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR).
These data will not be disclosed to third parties without your explicit consent.
 
Log Files
When accessing our web pages, access data is stored in so-called server log files. In the case of anonymization, the IP addresses are changed in such a way that the details of personal or factual circumstances can no longer be allocated to a specific or identifiable natural person, or only with a disproportional expenditure of time, cost and manpower. Pseudonymous data (clickstream data) may be automatically stored by the provider of this website, but not evaluated by us.
 
Cookies
Please note that our website uses cookies (session cookies). The use of our website is also possible without cookies.
Cookies are small text files that make it possible to store specific user-related information on the user’s device while using our website. Cookies make it possible to determine in particular the frequency of use and the number of users of the website, to analyze page usage behavior, but also to increase the security of the website and make our offer user-friendly. By using our website, you agree that cookies are used and collected, stored and used as non-personal usage data. You can also prevent third-party cookies from being set by deactivating the acceptance of third-party cookies in your internet browser.
 
Google Analytics
Privacy Policy for operation and use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)
The controlling body has integrated on this website the component Google Analytics (with anonymization function). Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data about: from which website the person concerned has come to a website (so-called referrers), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for which length of stay a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.
The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The controlling body uses the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp” for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the Internet access of the person concerned will be shortened and anonymized by Google if the access to our website is from a Member State of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze visitor flows on our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, to compile for us online reports showing the activities on our websites, and to provide other services related to the use of our website. 
Google Analytics uses a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are, has already been explained above. By using this cookie Google is enabled to analyze the usage of our website. Each time one of the pages of this website, which is operated by the controlling body and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, is accessed, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically initiated by the respective Google Analytics component to submit data to Google for online analysis purposes. As part of this technical process, Google will be aware of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which serve, among other things, Google to reconstruct the origin of the visitors and clicks, and subsequently make commission settlements possible. 
By means of the cookie, personal information, such as the access time, the place from which an access came from and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned, are stored. Each time you visit our website, your personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may transfer such personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.
The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies through our website, as shown above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the used Internet browser and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the used Internet browser would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs. Furthermore, the person concerned has the option of objecting to and preventing the collection of the data generated by Google Analytics for the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. To do this, the person concerned must download and install a browser add-on at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about website visits may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google as a contradiction. If the information technology system of the person concerned is later deleted, formatted or reinstalled, the person concerned must reinstall the browser add-on to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or disabled by the person concerned or by any other person within their sphere of control, it is possible to reinstall or reactivate the browser add-on.
 
Additional information and Google’s privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/en.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail at https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/. personal data is adequately protected.
