d) Cookies

We use cookies on our website. These are small files that your browser automatically creates and that are stored on your device (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit our website. Cookies do not harm your device and do not contain viruses, Trojans or other kinds of malware.

Cookies store information that arises in connection with the specific device used. However, this does not mean that we receive information about your identity directly.

Cookies help to make using our website a more pleasant experience for you. For example, we use "session cookies" to recognise that you have already visited individual pages on our website. These are deleted automatically after you leave our website.

We also employ temporary cookies with a view to optimising user-friendliness; these are stored on your device for a specifically defined period of time. If you visit our site again to use our services, they will automatically recognise that you have visited before and will determine the details you provided and settings you specified so that you do not have to input these again.

We also use cookies to collect statistical data on the use of our website and to analyse this data in order to enhance our offer for you (see Section 5). When you visit our website again, these cookies allow us to recognise automatically that you have been here before. These cookies are automatically deleted after a specifically defined period of time.

The data processed by cookies is required for the aforementioned purposes in order to protect our legitimate interests and those of third parties pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR.

Most browsers automatically accept cookies. However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or a message always appears before a new cookie is created. However, the complete deactivation of cookies can prevent you from using all the features of our website.

e) Analysis tools

a) Tracking tools

The tracking tools listed below and used by us are based on Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR. We use these tracking measures to improve the design of our website in line with user needs and to optimise it on an ongoing basis. We also use these tracking measures to collect statistical data on how our website is used and to analyse this data for the purposes of optimising the website for you. These interests are deemed to be legitimate within the meaning of the aforementioned provision.

Details of the data processing purposes and data categories

of the individual tracking tools are described below. 

i) Matomo (formerly Piwik)

This website uses the open-source web analysis service Matomo. Matomo uses cookies. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website is stored on our server. The IP address is anonymised before it is stored.

Matomo cookies remain on your device until you delete them.

Matomo cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the anonymised analysis of user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising.

The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website will not be passed on to third parties. You may prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; please note, however, that if you do this you may not be able to use all the features of this website.

If you do not agree to the storage and use of your data, you can deactivate such storage and use here. In this case, an opt-out cookie is stored in your browser which prevents Matomo from storing usage data. If you delete your cookies, the Matomo opt-out cookie will also be deleted. The opt-out must be reactivated the next time you visit our site.

ii) Google Fonts

In order to present our content correctly and with visually appealing graphics across all browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this website. Google Webfonts are transferred to your browser's cache to avoid multiple downloads. If your browser does not support Google Webfonts or does not allow access, the content will be displayed in a standard font.

Accessing script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is therefore theoretically possible for operators of such libraries to collect data; it is, however currently unclear whether this is the case and, if so, for what purposes.

You can find the data privacy policy of the library operator Google here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

iii) Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API to provide visual geo-location information. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data about the use of map functions by visitors. For more information about Google's data processing, please see Google's Privacy Policy (http://www.google.com/privacypolicy.html). You can also change your personal data privacy settings there in the Google Safety Center.

You can find detailed instructions on how to manage your data when using Google products here (http://www.dataliberation.org/).

iv) jQuery Cycle Plugin

External code of the JavaScript framework “jQuery”, supplied by the third-party provider jQuery Foundation

f) Social media plugins

We use social media plug-ins from the social networks YouTube and Vimeo in order to make our company better known pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR. The underlying commercial purpose is deemed to be a legitimate interest within the meaning of the GDPR. Responsibility for operation compliant with data privacy regulations rests with the respective providers. We integrate these plugins by means of the "two-click" method to provide visitors to our website with the best-possible protection.

a) YouTube

We embed YouTube videos on some of our web pages. The operator of the relevant plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection to YouTube's servers is established. YouTube is then informed which pages you visit. When you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can assign your surfing behaviour to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.

When a YouTube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behaviour.

If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program, this will also deactivate such cookies when viewing YouTube videos. However, YouTube stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the saving of cookies in your browser.

Further information on data privacy at "YouTube" can be found in the provider's data privacy statement at:  https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ 

b) Vimeo

Our website uses plugins from the video portal Vimeo. The provider is Vimeo Inc., 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.

When you visit one of our pages with a Vimeo plugin, a connection to the Vimeo servers is established. The Vimeo server is notified about which of our pages you have visited. In addition, Vimeo receives your IP address. This applies even if you are not logged in to Vimeo or do not have a Vimeo account. The information collected by Vimeo is transferred to the Vimeo server in the USA. 

When you are logged in to your Vimeo account, you allow Vimeo to assign your browsing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your Vimeo account beforehand.

Further information on its handling of user data can be found in the Vimeo privacy statement at: https://vimeo.com/privacy.

g) Rights of data subjects 

You have the right:

in accordance with Art. 15 of the GDPR, to request information about your personal data processed by us.

in accordance with Art. 77 of the GDPR, to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. In such cases you can normally lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority at your habitual residence or place of work or at the location of our company's registered office.

h) Right to object

If your personal data is processed based on legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR,

you have the right, in accordance with Art. 21 of the GDPR, to file an objection against the processing of your personal data

provided that there are grounds for this arising from your particular situation or the objection is made against direct marketing. In the latter case, you have a general right of objection which shall be implemented by us without you needing to specify a particular situation.

If you would like to exercise your right of revocation or objection, please send an e-mail to info@klaus-witzel.de.

i) Data security

During a website visit, we use the established SSL (Secure Socket Layer) procedure in combination with the highest encryption level supported by your browser, usually 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology

instead. You can see whether an individual page of our website is transmitted in

encrypted form by the closed key or lock symbol on the bottom status bar of your browser.

In addition, we use suitable technical and organisational security measures to protect your data from accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are improved on an ongoing basis in line with technological progress.
