PRIVACY POLICY

Welcome to our website. Data protection has a high priority for us. The use of our website is possible without any indication of personal data. If you as a user want to use special services of our company via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. Insofar as we cannot claim a legal basis for this, we will obtain your separate consent for this.

. The processing of personal data, this includes, for example: Name, address, e-mail address or telephone number, is carried out in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection provisions applicable to us. In the following, we will inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process, as well as about the rights to which you are entitled.

. We have implemented quite a few technical and organizational measures to keep the protection of your data as complete as possible. Nevertheless, data transmissions on the Internet can have security vulnerabilities, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. You are therefore free to transmit personal data to us in the traditional way.

. 1. first, some brief explanations of terms: The legal system assumes that a data controller, a data processor commissioned by the data controller or a third party acting on behalf of the data processor processes personal data of a data subject, anonymized or not, sometimes with the aim of creating a profile, discloses it to recipients, and may therefore require consent or be otherwise restricted.

. Personal data in this context means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are being processed by the controller.

Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organization, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.

Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data that consists of using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects relating to that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or change of location.

Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way 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 is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

Controller or controller 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 processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for under Union or Member State law.

Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

Recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not a third party. However, public authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigative task under Union or Member State law shall not be considered as recipients.

Third Party means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the Data Subject, the Controller, the Processor and the persons who, under the direct responsibility of the Controller or the Processor, are authorized to process the Personal Data.

Consent shall mean any freely given indication of the data subject's wishes in an informed and unambiguous manner for the specific case, in the form of a statement or other unambiguous affirmative act by which the data subject signifies that he or she consents to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

2. the controller within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation, other data protection laws in force in the Member States of the European Union and other provisions aimed at protecting data is:

. ARTHELPS gGmbH
. Local Court Stuttgart | HRB 748136
Management: Yasemin Lupo
E-mail: info@arthelps.de
Phone: +49 711 50 47 37 70

3. our Internet presence collects with each call by you as a data subject a number of data of the accessing system, which are stored in the log files of the server.

. These are:
- Browser type and version used
- Operating system used by the accessing system
. - Website from which an accessing system arrives at our website (so-called referrer)
- Subwebsites that are accessed on our website
. - Date and time of access to the website
. - Internet protocol address (IP address)
- Internet service provider of the accessing system
- Other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems

. However, when using these general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about you as a data subject.

. Rather, this information is needed to deliver content of our website, to optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of cyber attacks. Therefore, the anonymously collected data and information is, on the one hand, evaluated statistically and with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our system, so that an optimal level of protection can be ensured for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by you as a data subject.

. 4. our website uses cookies. These are text files that are filed and stored on a computer system via an Internet browser and contain a cookie ID, i.e. a unique identifier of the cookie consisting of a string of characters by which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific internet browser can be recognized and identified via the unique cookie ID. Without the use of cookies, the functionalities of our website could not be maintained.

. Through the use of cookies, we can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting. Otherwise, you as a user would have to enter access data before each visit to our website. The use of our range of goods would also be significantly more difficult without the use of cookies.

. As a data subject, however, you can prevent our website from setting cookies at any time by making the appropriate setting in the Internet browser you are using and thus permanently objecting to the setting of cookies. You can delete cookies that we have already set at any time via the Internet browser. Please note that thus not all functions of our website are fully usable.

. 5. our website contains - we are obliged to offer you a corresponding possibility of quick contact - a general address at which you can reach us by electronic mail (e-mail address). We also offer a contact form for this purpose. If you as a data subject contact us by e-mail or via the contact form, the personal data transmitted by you as a data subject will be stored automatically. Such personal data voluntarily transmitted by you will be stored for the purpose of processing or contacting you. There is no disclosure of this personal data to third parties.

. 6. We as the controller process and store your personal data only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or where this is provided for in regulations, directives, laws or regulations. If the storage purpose ceases to apply or if a prescribed storage period expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

. 7. Every data subject has the right to obtain confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data concerning him or her are being processed. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of confirmation, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.

. Any data subject concerned by the processing of personal data has the right to obtain from the controller, at any time and free of charge, information about the personal data stored concerning him or her, as well as a copy of such information.

. In addition, every data subject has the right to request information about:
- Purpose of processing
- Categories

of personal data that are processed - Recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular in the case of recipients in third countries or international organizations If possible, the planned duration for which the personal data will be stored or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining this duration

. - The existence of a right to rectification or erasure of the personal data concerning them, or to restriction of the processing by the controller or a right to object to such processing

. - Existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority

. - Any available information on the origin of the data if the personal data has not been collected from the data subject

. - The existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, and at least in these cases, meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject

. - Whether personal data have been transferred to a third country or to an international organization. (If this is the case, the data subject shall also have the right to obtain information on the appropriate safeguards in connection with the transfer)

. Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right to obtain the rectification without delay of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her. Furthermore, the data subject shall have the right, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to obtain the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary declaration.

. Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right to obtain from the controller the erasure without delay of personal data concerning him or her, where one of the following grounds applies and insofar as the processing is not necessary:

. - The personal data were collected or otherwise processed for such purposes for which they are no longer necessary

. - The data subject revokes the consent on which the processing was based and there is no other legal basis for the processing - The data subject objects to the processing and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing in the case of a direct marketing measure

- The personal data have been processed unlawfully

. - The erasure of the personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject

. - The personal data was collected in relation to information society services offered, which is made directly to a child if the child has not reached the age of sixteen or consent has not been given by or with the consent of the holder of parental responsibility over the child

. If the personal data have been made by us and our company is obliged to erase the personal data, we shall take reasonable measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the cost of implementation, to inform other data controllers who have processed the published personal data that you, as data subject, have requested from those other data controllers to erase all links to or copies or replications of the personal data, unless the processing is necessary.

. Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right to obtain from the controller the restriction of processing if one of the following conditions is met:

. - 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, the data subject objects to the erasure of the personal data and requests instead the restriction of the use of the personal data

. - The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data subject needs it for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims - The data subject has objected to the processing of personal data on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to the processing of data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller, or to such data the processing of which was necessary for the purposes of safeguarding the legitimate interests of the controller or of a third party, unless the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data are overridden, in particular where the data subject was a child, unless he or she can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override his or her interests, rights and freedoms, or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims

. Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which have been provided by the data subject to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. He or she also has the right to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance by the controller to whom the personal data have been provided, provided that the processing is based on consent under the Regulation (Art. 6, 9 DSGVO) or on contract pursuant to (Art. 6 DSGVO) and the processing is carried out with the aid of automated procedures, unless the processing is 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, when exercising your right to data portability, you as a data subject have the right to obtain that the personal data be transferred directly from us as controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible and insofar as this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.

. Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DS-GVO. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions. We 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 assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims. If we process personal data for the purposes of direct marketing, you as the data subject have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data for such marketing. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If you as the data subject object to us to the processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

. Any data subject concerned by the processing of personal data has the right 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, unless the decision is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the controller, or is permitted by legislation of the European Union or the Member States to which the controller is subject, and that legislation contains suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or has the data subject's explicit consent.

If the decision is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the controller, or if it is made with the data subject's explicit consent, we shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, which include at least the right to obtain the data subject's involvement on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and contest the decision.

. Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right to withdraw consent to the processing of personal data at any time. 8. we have integrated functionalities of the company Facebook, Inc, 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA on our website. The controller of personal data, if a data subject lives outside the USA or Canada, is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

. By each call of one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective Facebook component to download a representation of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook. A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=de_DE. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Facebook receives knowledge of which specific sub-page of our website is visited by the data subject.

. If the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes which specific sub-page of our website the data subject is visiting each time the data subject calls up our website and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject activates one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the "Like" button, or if the data subject makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and stores this personal data. Facebook always receives information via the Facebook component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is simultaneously logged into Facebook at the time of calling up our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If such transmission of this information to Facebook is not desired by the data subject, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her Facebook account before calling up our website.

. The data policy published by Facebook, which is available at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains what setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, various applications are available that make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Such applications can be used by the data subject to suppress data transmission to Facebook.

. 9. We have integrated the functionalities of Google Analytics with anonymization function on our website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service that collects, collects and evaluates data and thus analyzes the behavior of visitors to websites. This includes the referrer page, sub-pages and dwell time. The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

. We use the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this add-on, the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned is shortened and anonymized by Google if access to our Internet pages takes place 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 the flow of visitors to 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 showing the activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.

. Google Analytics sets a cookie on your computer unit. By each call of one of the individual pages of our website, the Internet browser is caused by Google Analytics to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Google obtains knowledge of personal data such as the IP address, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission settlements. By means of the cookie, personal information, e.g. access time and access location as well as the frequency of visits to our website are transmitted to Google in the USA and stored there. Google may pass on this personal data collected via the technical procedure to third parties. You can prevent cookies from being set and stored at any time by means of an appropriate setting, also with regard to the Google cookie.... In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

. You can also object to the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and related to a use of our website and the processing of this data by Google and prevent this use. For this purpose, download and install the browser add-on, which you can find here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on tells Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about website visits should be transmitted to Google Analytics; the installation of the add-on is considered by Google as an objection.

. Information and privacy policies of Google 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 detail under this link https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.

10. We have integrated services from Instagram on our website. Instagram allows its users to share photos and videos and also make such data available to other social networks. The operating company of the Instagram services is Instagram LLC, 1 Hacker Way, Building 14 First Floor, Menlo Park, CA, USA.

. By each call of one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by us and linked to Instagram, Instagram receives knowledge of which specific sub-page of our website is visited by you as a data subject. If you are logged in to Instagram at the same time, Instagram recognizes which specific sub-page you are visiting with each call to our website. This information is collected by the Instagram component and assigned by Instagram to the respective Instagram account, i.e. yours. If you click on one of the Instagram buttons integrated into our website, the data and information thus transmitted will be assigned to your personal Instagram user account and stored and processed by Instagram.

. Instagram always receives information via the Instagram component that you, as a data subject, have visited our website if you are simultaneously logged into Instagram at the time of calling up our website; this takes place regardless of whether you, as a data subject, click on the Instagram component or not. If you as the data subject do not want this information to be transmitted to Instagram, you can prevent this transmission by logging out of your Instagram account before accessing our website. Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Instagram can be found at https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388 and https://www.instagram.com/about/legal/privacy/.

11 We have integrated functionalities of Twitter on our website. You can recommend content from our website to your followers on Twitter. These short messages can be accessed by anyone, including people who are not registered with Twitter. However, the tweets are also displayed to the so-called followers of the respective user. Followers are other Twitter users who follow the tweets of a user. Furthermore, Twitter makes it possible to address a broad audience via hashtags, links or retweets. The operating company of Twitter is Twitter, Inc, 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

. If you are logged into Twitter with your account, visit content on our website that contains such a plugin and click on the Tweet button, Twitter generates a Tweet under your account that is announced to your followers and contains the title of the page content and an automatically generated short address. By each call of one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Twitter component (Twitter button) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective Twitter component to download a representation of the corresponding Twitter component from Twitter. Further information on the Twitter buttons can be found at https://about.twitter.com/de/resources/buttons.

. Twitter always receives information via the Twitter component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is simultaneously logged into Twitter at the time of calling up our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Twitter component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Twitter, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her Twitter account before accessing our website. However, the scope of the data transmitted to Twitter in this way is not transparent and cannot be assessed by us as the provider of this website. Information on this can be found in the privacy policy of Twitter: link (http://twitter.com/privacy). Because of the non-transparent data protection policy, please use the privacy settings, which you can change in the account settings at http://twitter.com/account/settings, particularly circumspectly.

12. As a rule, we must obtain consent for a specific processing purpose before we implement it. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations necessary for a supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, such processing serves the performance of a contract and does not require consent. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which the processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, we are also not required by law to collect your consent. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect your vital interests or those of another natural person. Finally, the processing of data may also be necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is in a contractual relationship with the party processing data.

. The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the performance of the contract or the initiation of the contract. As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling. This website has no interest in storing your data beyond the described, technically and organizationally necessary use of the data. As a user of our offer, you have a right to information about such personal data that we have stored about you. If this data is incorrect, you can request its correction, blocking and deletion.

. 13. You can use our contact form to contact us electronically. In doing so, the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us and stored. These are your name, your e-mail address, the subject and the message text.

. When sending the message, the following data is also stored:
- IP address of the user
- Date and time

The processing of all data takes place in order to be able to communicate with you and therefore to fulfill your request as well as to be able to carry out the contractual relationship with you as well as in our legitimate interest in being able to communicate with you after contact has been made. Alternatively, it is possible to contact us via the e-mail address provided by us. In this case, the user's personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be stored. However, the data will not be passed on to third parties under any circumstances. The data will be used exclusively for the processing of communication with you.

. 14. We use the provider MailChimp to send our newsletter. MailChimp is an offer of The Rocket Science Group, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA (in short: "Rocket"). The e-mail address stored during registration is transmitted to Rocket and stored by Rocket. The data entered during registration will not be transmitted to other third parties. By confirming your registration for the newsletter, you also agree to the data processing and tracking. In doing so, we only statistically record which links the subscribers have clicked in the newsletter. However, these analyses are only group-related and are not used by us for individual evaluation.
