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 Etoile chaville. The use of the
Internet pages of the Etoile chaville 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 Etoile chaville. 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 Etoile
chaville 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 Etoile chaville 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

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

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

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

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.

3. Collection of general data and information

The website of the Etoile chaville
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 Etoile chaville 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 Etoile chaville 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.

4. Subscription to our newsletters

On the website of the Etoile
chaville, 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 Etoile chaville 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.

5. Newsletter-Tracking

The newsletter of the Etoile
chaville 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 Etoile chaville 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 Etoile chaville
automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a
revocation.

6. Contact possibility via the website

The website of the Etoile
chaville 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.

7. 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.

8. 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

contact any employee of the controller.

  • b) Right of access

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator

      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

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 data subject objects to the processing
      pursuant to Article 21(2) of the GDPR.
    • 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 Etoile chaville, he or she
may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller. An employee of Etoile
chaville 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 Etoile chaville 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 from the controller restriction of processing where one of the
following applies:

    • The accuracy of the personal data is
      contested by the data subject, for a 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
Etoile chaville, he or she may at any time contact any employee of the
controller. The employee of the Etoile chaville 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

to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time,
to processing of personal data concerning him or her, which is based on point
(e) or (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on
these provisions.

The Etoile chaville 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 Etoile chaville processes personal data for direct marketing
purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to

    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

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 Etoile chaville 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

9. 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.

10. 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/+/web/buttons-policy.

11. Data protection provisions about the
application and use of Instagram

On this website, the controller
has integrated components of the service Instagram. Instagram is a service that
may be qualified as an audiovisual platform, which allows users to share photos
and videos, as well as disseminate such data in other social networks.

The operating company of the
services offered by Instagram is Instagram LLC, 1 Hacker Way, Building 14 First
Floor, Menlo Park, CA, UNITED STATES.

With each call-up to one of the
individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and
on which an Instagram component (Insta button) was integrated, the Internet
browser on the information technology system of the data subject is
automatically prompted to the download of a display of the corresponding
Instagram component of Instagram. During the course of this technical
procedure, Instagram becomes aware of what specific sub-page of our website was
visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in
at the same time on Instagram, Instagram 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-page of our Internet page was visited by the
data subject. This information is collected through the Instagram component and
is associated with the respective Instagram account of the data subject. If the
data subject clicks on one of the Instagram buttons integrated on our website,
then Instagram matches this information with the personal Instagram user
account of the data subject and stores the personal data.

Instagram receives information
via the Instagram component that the data subject has visited our website
provided that the data subject is logged in at Instagram at the time of the
call to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on the
Instagram button or not. If such a transmission of information to Instagram is
not desirable for the data subject, then he or she can prevent this by logging
off from their Instagram account before a call-up to our website is made.

Further information and the
applicable data protection provisions of Instagram may be retrieved under
https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388 and
https://www.instagram.com/about/legal/privacy/.

12. Data protection provisions about the
application and use of LinkedIn

The controller has integrated
components of the LinkedIn Corporation on this website. LinkedIn is a web-based
social network that enables users with existing business contacts to connect
and to make new business contacts. Over 400 million registered people in more
than 200 countries use LinkedIn. Thus, LinkedIn is currently the largest
platform for business contacts and one of the most visited websites in the
world.

The operating company of LinkedIn
is LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court Mountain View, CA 94043, UNITED STATES.
For privacy matters outside of the UNITED STATES LinkedIn Ireland, Privacy
Policy Issues, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, is responsible.

With each call-up to one of the
individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and
on which a LinkedIn component (LinkedIn plug-in) was integrated, the Internet
browser on the information technology system of the data subject is
automatically prompted to the download of a display of the corresponding
LinkedIn component of LinkedIn. Further information about the LinkedIn plug-in
may be accessed under https://developer.linkedin.com/plugins. During the course
of this technical procedure, LinkedIn gains knowledge of what specific sub-page
of our website was visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in
at the same time on LinkedIn, LinkedIn 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-page of our Internet page was visited by the
data subject. This information is collected through the LinkedIn component and
associated with the respective LinkedIn account of the data subject. If the
data subject clicks on one of the LinkedIn buttons integrated on our website,
then LinkedIn assigns this information to the personal LinkedIn user account of
the data subject and stores the personal data.

LinkedIn receives information via
the LinkedIn component that the data subject has visited our website, provided
that the data subject is logged in at LinkedIn at the time of the call-up to
our website. This occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on the
LinkedIn button or not. If such a transmission of information to LinkedIn is
not desirable for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging
off from their LinkedIn account before a call-up to our website is made.

LinkedIn provides under

13. Data protection provisions about the application
and use of Tumblr

On this website, the controller
has integrated components of Tumblr. Tumblr is a platform that allows users to
create and run a blog. A blog is a web-based, generally publicly-accessible
portal on which one or more people called bloggers or web bloggers may post
articles or write down thoughts in so-called blogposts. For example, in a
Tumblr blog the user can publish text, images, links, and videos, and spread
them in the digital space. Furthermore, Tumblr users may import content from
other websites into their own blog.

The operating company of Tumblr
is Tumblr, Inc., 35 East 21st St, Ground Floor, New York, NY 10010, UNITED
STATES.

Through each call to one of the
individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and
on which a Tumblr component (Tumblr button) has been integrated, the Internet
browser on the information technology system of the data subject causes
automatically the download of a display of the corresponding Tumblr component
of Tumblr. Learn more about the Tumblr-buttons that are available under
https://www.tumblr.com/buttons. During the course of this technical procedure,
Tumblr becomes aware of what concrete sub-page of our website was visited by
the data subject. The purpose of the integration of the Tumblr component is a
retransmission of the contents of this website to allow our users to introduce
this web page to the digital world and to increase our visitor numbers.

If the data subject is logged in
at Tumblr, Tumblr 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-page of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This
information is collected through the Tumblr component and associated with the
respective Tumblr account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on
one of the Tumblr buttons, integrated on our website, then Tumblr assigns this
information to the personal Tumblr user account of the data subject and stores
the personal data.

Tumblr receives information via
the Tumblr component that the data subject has visited our website, provided
that the data subject is logged in at Tumblr at the time of the call-up to our
website. This occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on the Tumblr
component or not. If such a transfer of information to Tumblr is not desirable
for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their
Tumblr account before a call-up to our website is made.

15. Data protection provisions about the
application and use of YouTube

On this website, the controller
has integrated components of YouTube. YouTube is an Internet video portal that
enables video publishers to set video clips and other users free of charge,
which also provides free viewing, review and commenting on them. YouTube allows
you to publish all kinds of videos, so you can access both full movies and TV
broadcasts, as well as music videos, trailers, and videos made by users via the
Internet portal.

The operating company of YouTube
is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, UNITED STATES. The
YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain
View, CA 94043-1351, UNITED STATES.

With each call-up to one of the
individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and
on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) was integrated, the Internet
browser on the information technology system of the data subject is
automatically prompted to download a display of the corresponding YouTube
component. Further information about YouTube may be obtained under
https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/en/. During the course of this technical
procedure, YouTube and Google gain knowledge of what specific sub-page of our
website was visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in
on YouTube, YouTube recognizes with each call-up to a sub-page that contains a
YouTube video, which specific sub-page of our Internet site was visited by the
data subject. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned
to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.

YouTube and Google will receive
information through the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our
website, if the data subject at the time of the call to our website is logged
in on YouTube; this occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on a YouTube
video or not. If such a transmission of this information to YouTube and Google
is not desirable for the data subject, the delivery may be prevented if the
data subject logs off from their own YouTube account before a call-up to our
website is made.

YouTube’s data protection
provisions, available at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/,
provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data
by YouTube and Google.

16. 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).

17. 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.

18. 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.

19. 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.

20. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we do
not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
