2.       Collection and Use of Personal Data While Using Our Website 

2.1.    You can visit our website without actively providing us with disclosures about your identity. In this case, we will only gather the personal data transmitted by your browser to our server. This data will be anonymised or gathered using pseudonyms in order to deliver the contents of the website to the user’s computer and in order to perform an evaluation for the purposes of optimising and monitoring the functionality of our web presence while ensuring the security of our information technology systems (Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter f) GDPR).

2.2.    Our log files contain disclosures about the date and time of retrieval of our website, browser type, version and settings, your operating system and Internet service provider, about the websites used by you to get to our website or which called up by you via our website, as well as the quantity of data transmitted.

2.3.    Your IP address will likewise be gathered on a case-by-case basis, i.e. an address allocated by your Internet service provider to your computer once to connect to the Internet. This IP address enables communication on the Internet. Your Internet service provider can retrace the IP address allocated to you at a given point in time. Since the full IP address allows at least to establish an indirect relation to an identifiable person on this account, we will exclusively gather your IP address in an abbreviated (anonymised) form to ensure that establishing any relation to an identifiable person by us will be excluded, and we will store it separately from any personal data. As a rule, the log file data will be deleted after 14 days at the latest.

2.4.    Collection of such data to provide the website and to store the data in log files will be absolutely necessary to ensure operation of the website. Any possibility to object does not exist in this context.

3.1.    Our website uses cookies to collect your data exclusively while using pseudonyms. Cookies are small data packages generated by a web server and placed on the hard drive of your computer while your computer is communicating with the web server.

3.2.    We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”), with which we have entered into a contract data processing agreement. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, i.e. text files which can be stored on your computer. Such files contain a characteristic sequence of numbers enabling unambiguous identification of any browser once our website is called up again, unless the cookie has been deleted by you or its period of validity has expired in the meantime. The cookie will lose its validity after 30 days and will no longer transmit any information to us to enable use to personally identify you.

As a general rule, the information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will be transferred to a server of Google in the United States and will be stored there. Please note that our website uses the “anonymizeIp()” (IP anonymisation) extension. As a result, Google will abbreviate your IP address within the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area by the last octet for IPv4 addresses and by the last 80 bits in the memory for IPv6 addresses before any storage and transmission takes place to ensure that any direct relation to an identifiable person will be excluded. The entire IP address will be transmitted to a server of Google in the United States and abbreviated there only in exceptional cases. Further technical information about how the IP address will be anonymised can be found at the following link (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2763052?hl=en).

3.4.    Google will use this information on our behalf (Art. 28 GDPR) to evaluate your use of the website for us, to compile reports about the website activities for us and to provide us with further services associated with the use of the website and the use of the Internet (Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter f) GDPR). The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics will not be amalgamated with any other data of Google.

3.5.    You can prevent cookies from being stored by setting your browser accordingly; in this case, however, some functions of this website might be impaired, as the case may be. You can also delete cookies yourself. You can prevent Google from gathering and processing the data generated by the cookie by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available for common browsers at the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en). In addition, you can place a <a href=“javascript:gaOptout()“>Disable Google Analytics</a> opt-out cookie which will then prevent any future gathering of your data while visiting this website.

If you do not confirm your newsletter subscription immediately, we will delete your disclosures.

5.3.    Your e-mail address will be the sole mandatory disclosure for sending the newsletter. Indication of any further data is optional and will be used in order to address you in person.

5.4.    Your e-mail address will be stored by us as long as your newsletter subscription is in use or until to object to such use. To ensure fulfilment of this responsibility, we will cooperate with our partner companies [https://www.peek-cloppenburg.de/partnerunternehmen], to which we may pass on your data for advertising purposes based on your consent.
