PRIVACY POLICY

This privacy policy is subject to change without
notice. last updated on January, 10th 2019.

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 Loss MEALS. The use of the Internet pages of the Loss MEALS 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 Loss
MEALS. 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 Loss MEALS 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 Loss MEALS 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 public, as well as our
customers and business partners. To ensure this, we 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

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

situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour,
location or movements.

  • F)    
    PSEUDONYMISATION

Pseudonymization 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 organizational
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 with others, determines the purposes and means of
the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such

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.

3. COOKIES

The Internet pages of the Loss MEALS use cookies.
Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet
browser.

Many Internet sites and servers use cookies. Many
cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of
the cookie. It consists of a character string through which Internet pages and
servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie
was stored. This allows visited Internet sites and servers to differentiate the
individual browser of the dats subject from other Internet browsers that
contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and
identified using the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, the Loss MEALS can provide
the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be
possible without the cookie setting.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on
our website can be optimized with the user in mind. Cookies allow us, as
previously mentioned, to recognize our website users. The purpose of this
recognition is to make it easier for users to utilize our website. The website
user that uses cookies, e.g. does not have to enter access data each time the
website is accessed, because this is taken over by the website, and the cookie
is thus stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of
a shopping cart in an online shop. The online store remembers the articles that
a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting
of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the
Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies.
Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet
browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet
browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the
Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.

4. COLLECTION OF GENERAL DATA AND INFORMATION

The website of the Loss MEALS 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 Loss
MEALS 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 Loss
MEALS  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.

5. SUBSCRIPTION TO OUR NEWSLETTERS

On the website of the Loss MEALS, 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 Loss MEALS 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.

6. NEWSLETTER-TRACKING

The newsletter of the Loss MEALS 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 Loss MEALS 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 Loss MEALS automatically regards a
withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.

7. CONTACT POSSIBILITY VIA THE WEBSITE

The website of the Loss MEALS 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.

8. COMMENTS FUNCTION IN THE BLOG ON THE WEBSITE

The Loss MEALS offers users the possibility to leave
individual comments on individual blog contributions on a blog, which is on the
website of the controller. A blog is a web-based, publicly-accessible portal,
through which one or more people called bloggers or web-bloggers may post
articles or write down thoughts in so-called blogposts. Blogposts may usually
be commented by third parties.

If a data subject leaves a comment on the blog
published on this website, the comments made by the data subject are also
stored and published, as well as information on the date of the commentary and
on the user’s (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject. In addition, the IP
address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) to the data subject is
also logged. This storage of the IP address takes place for security reasons,
and in case the data subject violates the rights of third parties, or posts
illegal content through a given comment. The storage of these personal data is,
therefore, in the own interest of the data controller, so that he can exculpate
in the event of an infringement. This collected personal data will not be
passed to third parties, unless such a transfer is required by law or serves
the aim of the defense of the data controller.

9. SUBSCRIPTION TO COMMENTS IN THE BLOG ON THE WEBSITE

The comments made in the blog of the Loss MEALS may be
subscribed to by third parties. In particular, there is the possibility that a
commenter subscribes to the comments following his comments on a particular
blog post.

If a data subject decides to subscribe to the option,
the controller will send an automatic confirmation e-mail to check the double
opt-in procedure as to whether the owner of the specified e-mail address
decided in favor of this option. The option to subscribe to comments may be
terminated at any time.

10. 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.

11. RIGHTS OF THE DATA SUBJECT

    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

MEALS, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller. An
employee of Loss MEALS 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. Employees of the
Loss MEALS 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 defense
      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 Loss MEALS, he or she may at any time contact any employee
of the controller. The employee of the Loss MEALS 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 personal data transmitted directly from one controller to
another, where technically feasible and when doing so does not adversely affect
the rights and freedoms of others.

data subject may at any time contact any employee of the Loss MEALS.

  • G)
    RIGHT TO OBJECT

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the
European legislator 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 Loss MEALS 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 Loss MEALS processes personal data for direct
marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time
to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing. This
applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.
If the data subject objects to the Loss MEALS to the processing for direct
marketing purposes, the Loss MEALS  will
no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

In addition, the data subject has the right, on
grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to processing of
personal data concerning him or her by the Loss MEALS  for scientific or historical research
purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR,

automated means using technical specifications.

  • H) AUTOMATED INDIVIDUAL
    DECISION-MAKING, 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 necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract
between the data 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

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 Loss MEALS  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 of the controller, to
express his or her point of view and contest the decision.

If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights
concerning automated individual decision-making, he or she may, at any time,
contact any employee of the Loss MEALS.

  • I) RIGHT TO WITHDRAW DATA
    PROTECTION CONSENT

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the
European legislator to withdraw his or her consent to processing of his or her

withdraw the consent, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the Loss
MEALS.

12. DATA PROTECTION PROVISIONS ABOUT THE APPLICATION
AND USE OF ADDTHIS

On this website, the data controller has integrated components
of the enterprise AddThis. AddThis is a so-called bookmarking provider. The
service allows for simplified bookmarking of Internet pages via buttons. By
clicking on the AddThis component with the mouse, or by clicking on it, a list
of bookmarking and sharing services is displayed. AddThis is used on over 15
million websites, and the buttons are displayed, according to the information
of the operating enterprise, over 20 billion times a year.

The operating company of AddThis is AddThis, Inc. 1595
Spring Hill Road, Suite 300, Vienna, VA 22182, United States.

By calling up one of the individual pages of the
website, which is operated by the controller, and on which an AddThis component
has been integrated, the Internet browser of the data subject is automatically
prompted by the respective AddThis component to download data from the website
www.addthis.com. Within the framework of this technical procedure, AddThis is
informed of the visit and the specific individual page of this website that was
used by the data subject with the help of information technology. In addition,
AddThis is informed about the IP address of the computer system assigned by the
Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject, the browser type
and language, the web page accessed before our website, the date and the time
of the visit to our website. AddThis uses this data to create anonymous user
profiles. The data and information transmitted to AddThis in this way will
enable the enterprise AddThis, as well as affiliates or their
partner-enterprises, to contact visitors of the web pages of the controller
with personalized and interest-based advertising.

AddThis displays personalized and interest-based
advertising on the basis of a cookie set by the enterprise. This cookie
analyzes the individual surfing behavior of the computer system used by the
data subject. The cookie saves the computer-based outgoing visits to Internet
pages.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting
of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the
Internet browser used, and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such a
setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent AddThis from setting a
cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. Cookies may
also be deleted by AddThis at any time via an Internet browser or other
software programs.

The data subject also has the possibility of objecting
permanently to the processing of personal data by AddThis. For this purpose,
the data subject must click on the opt-out button under the link
http://www.addthis.com/privacy/opt-out, which sets an opt-out cookie. The
opt-out cookie used for this purpose is placed on the information technology
system used by the data subject. If the data subject deletes the cookies from
his system, then the data subject must call up the link again and set a new
opt-out cookie.

With the setting of the opt-out cookie, however, the
possibility exists that the websites of the controller are not fully usable
anymore by the data subject.

The applicable data protection provisions of AddThis
may be accessed under http://www.addthis.com/privacy/privacy-policy.

13. 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.

14. DATA PROTECTION PROVISIONS ABOUT THE APPLICATION
AND USE OF GOOGLE ADSENSE

On this website, the controller has integrated Google
AdSense. Google AdSense is an online service which allows the placement of
advertising on third-party sites. Google AdSense is based on an algorithm that
selects advertisements displayed on third-party sites to match with the content
of the respective third-party site. Google AdSense allows an interest-based
targeting of the Internet user, which is implemented by means of generating individual
user profiles.

The operating company of Google’s AdSense component is
Alphabet Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United
States.

The purpose of Google’s AdSense component is the
integration of advertisements on our website. Google AdSense places a cookie on
the information technology system of the data subject. The definition of
cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Alphabet Inc. is
enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the
individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and
into which a Google AdSense component is integrated, the Internet browser on the
information technology system of the data subject will automatically submit
data through the Google AdSense component for the purpose of online advertising
and the settlement of commissions to Alphabet Inc. During the course of this
technical procedure, the enterprise Alphabet Inc. gains knowledge of personal
data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Alphabet Inc.,
inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently
create commission settlements.

The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the
setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding
adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of
cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent
Alphabet Inc. from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the
data subject. Additionally, cookies already in use by Alphabet Inc. may be
deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, Google AdSense also uses so-called
tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in
web pages to enable a log file recording and a log file analysis through which
a statistical analysis may be performed. Based on the embedded tracking pixels,
Alphabet Inc. is able to determine if and when a website was opened by a data
subject, and which links were clicked on by the data subject. Tracking pixels
serve, inter alia, to analyze the flow of visitors on a website.

Through Google AdSense, personal data and
information—which also includes the IP address, and is necessary for the
collection and accounting of the displayed advertisements—is transmitted to
Alphabet Inc. in the United States of America. These personal data will be
stored and processed in the United States of America. The Alphabet Inc. may
disclose the collected personal data through this technical procedure to third
parties.

Google AdSense is further explained under the
following link https://www.google.com/intl/en/adsense/start/.

15. DATA PROTECTION PROVISIONS ABOUT THE APPLICATION
AND USE OF GOOGLE ANALYTICS (WITH ANONYMIZATION FUNCTION)

On this website, the controller has integrated the
component of Google Analytics (with the anonymizer function). Google Analytics
is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and
analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis
service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has
come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and
for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the
optimization of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of
Internet advertising.

The operator of the Google Analytics component is
Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United
States.

For the web analytics through Google Analytics the
controller uses the application “_gat. _anonymizeIp”. By means of this
application the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is
abridged by Google and anonymized when accessing our websites from a Member
State of the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on
the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to
analyze the traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and
information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide
online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other
services concerning the use of our Internet site for us.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the information
technology system of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained
above. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of
our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet
site, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google Analytics
component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology
system of the data subject will automatically submit data through the Google
Analytics component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of
commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, the
enterprise Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP
address of the data subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the
origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently create commission settlements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such
as the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the
frequency of visits of our website by the data subject. With each visit to our
Internet site, such personal data, including the IP address of the Internet
access used by the data subject, will be transmitted to Google in the United
States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United
States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the
technical procedure to third parties.

The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the
setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding
adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of
cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent
Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the information technology system of
the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may
be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.

In addition, the data subject has the possibility of
objecting to a collection of data that are generated by Google Analytics, which
is related to the use of this website, as well as the processing of this data
by Google and the chance to preclude any such. For this purpose, the data
subject must download a browser add-on under the link
https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and install it. This browser add-on
tells Google Analytics through a JavaScript, that any data and information
about the visits of Internet pages may not be transmitted to Google Analytics.
The installation of the browser add-ons is considered an objection by Google.
If the information technology system of the data subject is later deleted,
formatted, or newly installed, then the data subject must reinstall the browser
add-ons to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on was uninstalled by
the data subject or any other person who is attributable to their sphere of
competence, or is disabled, it is possible to execute the reinstallation or
reactivation of the browser add-ons.

Further information and the applicable data protection
provisions of Google may be retrieved under
https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and under
http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Google Analytics is further
explained under the following Link https://www.google.com/analytics/.

16. DATA PROTECTION PROVISIONS ABOUT THE APPLICATION
AND USE OF GOOGLE REMARKETING

On this website, the controller has integrated Google
Remarketing services. Google Remarketing is a feature of Google AdWords, which
allows an enterprise to display advertising to Internet users who have
previously resided on the enterprise’s Internet site. The integration of Google
Remarketing therefore allows an enterprise to create user-based advertising and
thus shows relevant advertisements to interested Internet users.

The operating company of the Google Remarketing
services is the Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA
94043-1351, United States.

The purpose of Google Remarketing is the insertion of
interest-relevant advertising. Google Remarketing allows us to display ads on
the Google network or on other websites, which are based on individual needs
and matched to the interests of Internet users.

Google Remarketing sets a cookie on the information
technology system of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained
above. With the setting of the cookie, Google enables a recognition of the
visitor of our website if he calls up consecutive web pages, which are also a
member of the Google advertising network. With each call-up to an Internet site
on which the service has been integrated by Google Remarketing, the web browser
of the data subject identifies automatically with Google. During the course of
this technical procedure, Google receives personal information, such as the IP
address or the surfing behavior of the user, which Google uses, inter alia, for
the insertion of interest relevant advertising.

The cookie is used to store personal information, e.g.
the Internet pages visited by the data subject. Each time we visit our Internet
pages, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by
the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America.
These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America.
Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure
to third parties.

The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the
setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding
adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of
cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent
Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data
subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google may be deleted at any
time via a web browser or other software programs.

In addition, the data subject has the possibility of
objecting to the interest-based advertising by Google. For this purpose, the
data subject must call up the link to www.google.de/settings/ads and make the
desired settings on each Internet browser used by the data subject.

Further information and the actual data protection
provisions of Google may be retrieved under
https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

17. DATA PROTECTION PROVISIONS ABOUT THE APPLICATION
AND USE OF GOOGLE-ADWORDS

On this website, the controller has integrated Google
AdWords. Google AdWords is a service for Internet advertising that allows the
advertiser to place ads in Google search engine results and the Google
advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-define specific
keywords with the help of which an ad on Google’s search results only then
displayed, when the user utilizes the search engine to retrieve a keyword-relevant
search result. In the Google Advertising Network, the ads are distributed on
relevant web pages using an automatic algorithm, taking into account the
previously defined keywords.

The operating company of Google AdWords is Google
Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, UNITED STATES.

The purpose of Google AdWords is the promotion of our
website by the inclusion of relevant advertising on the websites of third
parties and in the search engine results of the search engine Google and an insertion
of third-party advertising on our website.

If a data subject reaches our website via a Google ad,
a conversion cookie is filed on the information technology system of the data
subject through Google. The definition of cookies is explained above. A
conversion cookie loses its validity after 30 days and is not used to identify
the data subject. If the cookie has not expired, the conversion cookie is used
to check whether certain sub-pages, e.g, the shopping cart from an online shop
system, were called up on our website. Through the conversion cookie, both
Google and the controller can understand whether a person who reached an
AdWords ad on our website generated sales, that is, executed or canceled a sale
of goods.

The data and information collected through the use of
the conversion cookie is used by Google to create visit statistics for our
website. These visit statistics are used in order to determine the total number
of users who have been served through AdWords ads to ascertain the success or
failure of each AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads in the future.
Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information
from Google that could identify the data subject.

The conversion cookie stores personal information,
e.g. the Internet pages visited by the data subject. Each time we visit our
Internet pages, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access
used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of
America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of
America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical
procedure to third parties.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting
of cookies by our website, as stated above, by means of a corresponding setting
of the Internet browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies.
Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from
placing a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the data subject.
In addition, a cookie set by Google AdWords may be deleted at any time via the
Internet browser or other software programs.

The data subject has a possibility of objecting to the
interest-based advertisement of Google. Therefore, the data subject must access
from each of the browsers in use the link www.google.de/settings/ads and set
the desired settings.

Further information and the applicable data protection
provisions of Google may be retrieved under
https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

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.

22. 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).

23. 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.

24. 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.

25. 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.

26. EXISTENCE OF AUTOMATED DECISION-MAKING

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