Thank you for your interest in my law firm.
Data protection is particularly important to me.

7. Data protection regulations for the application and use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)
The person responsible for processing has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data about the website from which a person concerned came to a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.
The person responsible for processing uses the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp” for the web analysis via Google Analytics. With this addition, the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned is shortened and anonymized by Google if our website is accessed from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze visitor flows on our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us that show the activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is able to analyze the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the person responsible for processing and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically activated by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google gains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission statements.
The cookie is used to store personal information, such as access time, the location from which access was made and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.
The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
Further information and Google's applicable data protection regulations can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.
8. Data protection regulations for the deployment and use of Jetpack for WordPress
The person responsible for processing has integrated Jetpack on this website. Jetpack is a WordPress plug-in that offers additional functions to the operator of a website built on WordPress. Jetpack allows the website operator, among other things, to get an overview of the visitors to the site. It is also possible to increase the number of visitors by displaying related articles and publications or by being able to share content on the site. In addition, security features are built into Jetpack, so that a website using Jetpack is better protected against brute force attacks. Jetpack also optimizes and speeds up the loading of the images integrated into the website.
The operating company of the Jetpack plugin for WordPress is Aut O'Mattic A8C Ireland Ltd., Business Centre, No.1 Lower Mayor Street, International Financial Services Centre, Dublin 1, Ireland.
Jetpack sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the person responsible for processing and on which a jetpack component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective jetpack component to collect data for analysis purposes to be sent to Automattic. As part of this technical process, Automattic gains knowledge of data that is subsequently used to create an overview of website visits. The data obtained in this way is used to analyze the behavior of the person concerned who accessed the website of the person responsible for processing and is evaluated with the aim of optimizing the website. The data collected via the Jetpack component will not be used to identify the data subject without first obtaining a separate express consent from the data subject. Quantcast also becomes aware of the data. Quantcast uses the data for the same purposes as Automattic.
The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Automattic/Quantcast from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, cookies already set by Automattic can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
Furthermore, the data subject has the option of objecting to and preventing the collection of the data generated by the Jetpack cookie relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Automattic/Quantcast. To do this, the person concerned must press the opt-out button under the link https://www.quantcast.com/opt-out/, which sets an opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie set with the objection is stored on the information technology system used by the person concerned. If the cookies on the data subject's system are deleted after an objection, 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, there is the possibility that the website of the person responsible for processing can no longer be fully used by the person concerned.
9. Payment method: data protection regulations for PayPal as a payment method
The person responsible for processing has integrated PayPal components on this website. PayPal is an online payment service provider. Payments are processed via so-called PayPal accounts, which represent virtual private or business accounts. PayPal also offers the option of processing virtual payments via credit cards if a user does not have a PayPal account. A PayPal account is managed via an email address, which is why there is no classic account number. PayPal makes it possible to trigger online payments to third parties or to receive payments. PayPal also assumes trustee functions and offers buyer protection services.
PayPal's European operating company is PayPal (Europe) S.à.rl et Cie, SCA, 22-24 Boulevard Royal L-2449, Luxembourg.
If the data subject selects "PayPal" as the payment option during the ordering process in our online shop, the data of the data subject is automatically transmitted to PayPal. By selecting this payment option, the data subject agrees to the transfer of personal data required for payment processing.
The personal data transmitted to PayPal is usually first name, last name, address, email address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number or other data required for payment processing. Personal data related to the respective order are also required to process the purchase contract.
The transmission of the data is intended for payment processing and fraud prevention. The person responsible for processing will transmit personal data to PayPal in particular if there is a legitimate interest in the transmission. The personal data exchanged between PayPal and the person responsible for processing may be transmitted by PayPal to credit agencies. The purpose of this transmission is to check identity and creditworthiness.
PayPal may pass on the personal data to affiliated companies and service providers or subcontractors insofar as this is necessary to fulfill the contractual obligations or the data is to be processed in the order.
The data subject has the option of withdrawing their consent to the handling of personal data from PayPal at any time. A revocation does not affect personal data that must be processed, used or transmitted for (contractual) payment processing.
PayPal's applicable data protection regulations can be found at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full.
10. Legal Basis for Processing
Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company 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 to fulfill a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data could become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or 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 I lit. d GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not prevail. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).
11. Legitimate interests in processing pursued by the controller or a third party
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is conducting our business for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.
12. Duration for which the personal data will be stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline has expired, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that they are no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract.
13. Statutory or contractual requirements for providing the personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a person concerned makes personal data available to us, which must then be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide the personal data would mean 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 one of our employees. Our employee clarifies to the data subject on a case-by-case basis 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 what the consequences would be if the personal data were not provided.
14. Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
This data protection declaration is based on a version created by the data protection declaration generator of the DGD Deutsche Gesellschaft für Datenschutz GmbH, known as External data protection officer Freising operates in cooperation with the Data Protection Lawyer Christian Solmecke was created.
