The following notes provide a simple overview of what happens to your personal information when you visit our website. Personal information is any information that personally identifies you. For detailed information on the subject of data protection, please refer to our data protection declaration listed below this text.
Data collection on our website
The data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator. Their contact data can be found in the imprint of this website.
On the one hand, your data will be collected by you communicating it to us. This may involve data that you enter in a contact form. Other data is automatically collected by our IT systems when you visit the website. These are mainly technical data (e.g. Internet browser, operating system or time of the page call). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.
Collection of personal data
In order to advise our customers appropriately, we require the voluntary provision of personal data such as name, telephone number, e-mail address, contact and other relevant information. For the same reasons, we may request documents that may contain such information.
Use of Personal Information
The personal data provided to us by our customers is primarily used for communication purposes. This information is also used for the internal purposes of the law firm, for reviewing and processing the matter entrusted to us, or for statistical analysis of the cases we handle.
We only store this data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected (or for directly related purposes) or as prescribed by law.
All the above provisions apply without prejudice to any exceptions which may arise from the legislation on the protection of the privacy of individuals and the use of personal data.
Some Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser during your next visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, accept cookies for certain cases or generally exclude them and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. You can deactivate the option "Cookies" in your web browser; please note, however, that this may affect your use of our website.
Use of analysis services (Google Analytics)
We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as "Google") (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/), for the purpose of tailoring our website to meet your needs and continually improving it.
We use Google Analytics. Our aim is to ensure that our website is designed to meet needs and is continually optimised. On the other hand, we use the tracking measures in order to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for you for the purpose of optimising our offer. These interests are to be regarded as justified within the meaning of the aforementioned provision.
Google Analytics anonymously monitors IP addresses and collects website statistics, such as the number of page views, the number of visitors, the length of stay on our website, browser types and general entry and exit points to and from the website.
The above information may also be transferred to third parties where required to do so by law or where such third parties process the information on our behalf. Under no circumstances will the IP address transmitted by your browser be merged with other Google data. The IP addresses are anonymised so that an allocation is not possible (IP masking). Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity and provide us with other services relating to website activity and internet usage.
Google Analytics collects all information and makes it available to us so that we can better understand how our website is used; no individual visitors are identified. Google Analytics systems have established themselves as a recognized standard for measuring website traffic between large websites.
The reports we receive from Google Analytics may include the following features:
- Analysis of our paid digital advertising on other websites. This allows us to better understand ad views and helps us optimize and customize our advertising.
- Analysis of the use of our website in terms of age, gender and general interests of visitors. This anonymous information helps us understand navigation behaviour to help us with our marketing and to provide visitors with a better experience when visiting our website.
- Integrate our advertising and website analysis. This allows us to customize our advertising to display the right type of offers when using the Internet outside our website.
Processing, updating, correction and deletion of personal data.
You may request access to and correction of any personal information you have submitted to our company. You may also ask us to remove your personal information from our systems. Please note that it may take up to 15 business days to process your request.
