A web analysis is mainly used for optimizing a website and for 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.

Legal basis of processing
Article 6 I lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for our company for processing operations where we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. Where 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, in the case of processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other performance or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Article 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or any other natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were injured and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information were then passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Should. The processing would then be based on Article 6 I lit. d GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is the basis for processing operations which are not covered by any of the above legal bases where the processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests of the fundamental rights and freedoms of the person concerned. We are allowed to process such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In that regard, it considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47, second sentence, GDPR).
Eligible interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party
Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR is our legitimate interest in conducting our business for the benefit of all our employees and shareholders.
Duration for which the personal data is stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After the expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer necessary for the performance of the contract or the initiation of the contract.
Legal or contractual requirements for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provisioning
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information about the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that a data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data when our company enters into a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before the data subject has provided personal data, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee shall inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract or whether it is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data. data and the consequences of non-provision of personal data.

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