The information provided on this website is for general information purposes only and does not constitute legal, tax or other professional advice. The website contains non-political news relating to tax, social and economic law and primarily addresses the clients of our company.

Liability

The intention of the author of this website is to provide information completely and correctly to the best of the author's knowledge and belief, and to keep this information updated. Nevertheless, the author cannot accept any liability for damages that may result from the use of the information provided - even if the damage results from the use of possibly incomplete and/or erroneous information.

Any references to external websites are outside the scope of the author’s responsibility. Liability for the content of linked pages is excluded, especially as the author has no influence on the content or design of linked pages. The provider of these external websites is therefore solely liable for the contents of pages to which reference is made from the pages of this website - never, however, the person who refers to external publications and contents by means of a link. If linked pages (particularly owing to a change to the content after the link has been established) contain illegal, erroneous, incomplete, offensive or immoral information and in the event that the author of this page becomes (is made) aware of such contents on the linked pages, then the author shall cut off the link to such pages immediately.

Cookies

To enable you to make better use of our website, we use small text files known as "cookies" to track user preferences and to optimise our website accordingly. However, we do not use cookies to track individual visits to our website. Nowadays, most websites use cookies as a matter of routine. However, if you have any concerns in this regard, you can disable the use of cookies in your browser settings.

Privacy policy on the use and application of Google AdSense

The responsible for the processing has integrated Google AdSense on this website. Google AdSense is an online service that enables the placement of advertisements on third-party websites. Google AdSense is based on an algorithm which selects the advertisements displayed on third-party sites in accordance with the content of the respective third-party site. Google AdSense allows interest-related targeting of the Internet user, which is implemented by generating individual user profiles.

The operating company of the Google AdSense component is Alphabet Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of the Google AdSense component is to integrate advertisements on our website. Google-AdSense sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Alphabet Inc. is enabled to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website operated by the responsible for processing is called up, on which a Google AdSense component has been integrated, the internet browser on the data subject's information technology system is automatically caused by the respective Google AdSense component to transmit data to Alphabet Inc. for the purpose of online advertising and the invoicing of commissions. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Alphabet Inc. obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Alphabet Inc. uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission settlements.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Alphabet Inc. from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Alphabet Inc. can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programmes.

Google AdSense also uses so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in Internet pages to enable log file recording and log file analysis, whereby a statistical evaluation can be carried out. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, Alphabet Inc. may see if and when a website was opened by a data subject, and which links were clicked by the data subject. Among other things, tracking pixels are used to evaluate the flow of visitors to a website.

Via Google AdSense, personal data and information, which also includes the IP address and is necessary for the collection and billing of the advertisements displayed, are transmitted to Alphabet Inc. in the United States of America. This personal data is stored and processed in the United States of America. Alphabet Inc. may pass on this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.

Google-AdSense Google-AdSense is explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.de/intl/de/adsense/start/

Privacy policy on the use and application of Google AdWords

The responsible for the processing has integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to place ads in Google's search engine results as well as in the Google advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to specify certain keywords in advance, by means of which an ad is displayed in Google's search engine results exclusively when the user retrieves a keyword-relevant search result with the search engine. In the Google advertising network, the ads are distributed on topic-relevant websites by means of an automatic algorithm and in compliance with the previously defined keywords.

The operating company of the Google AdWords services is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our website by displaying interest-relevant advertising on the websites of third-party companies and in the search engine results of the Google search engine and to display third-party advertising on our website.

If a data subject accesses our website via a Google advertisement, a so-called conversion cookie will be stored by Google on the data subject's information technology system. What cookies are has already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and does not serve to identify the data subject. The conversion cookie is used to track whether certain sub-pages, for example the shopping basket of an online shop system, have been called up on our website, provided the cookie has not yet expired. The conversion cookie enables both us and Google to track whether a data subject who has accessed our website via an AdWords ad has generated a sale, i.e. has completed or cancelled a purchase of goods.

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie are used by Google to compile visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are in turn used by us to determine the total number of users who were referred to us via AdWords ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords ad and to optimise our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor other advertisers of Google AdWords receive information from Google by means of which the data subject could be identified.

By means of the conversion cookie, personal information, such as the websites visited by the data subject, is stored. Each time the data subject visits our website, personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, 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 share this personal data collected via the technical process with third parties.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of an appropriate setting of 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 conversion cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programmes.

Furthermore, the data subject has the option to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, the data subject must call up the link www.google.de/settings/ads from any of the internet browsers he or she uses and make the desired settings there.

Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/

Use of social media

General Information

  • Purpose of data processing:  We use social media primarily to communicate with existing and new customers and to make information about our company available to a wide range of recipients. For this purpose, we process contact and communication data in particular, as well as data necessary to measure the reach of the information we provide. In addition, the operator of the respective social medium processes personal data for tracking (e.g. creation of user profiles based on usage behaviour or interests), remarketing (e.g. targeted advertising ads by cooperation partners) and in order to provide us with statistical evaluations of the use of our service.
  • Affected persons: Basically, all profile visitors, i.e. persons who access our profiles on social media.
  • Scope of data processing: For the aforementioned purposes, we or third-party providers commissioned by us process personal data to identify the profile visitor (e.g. name, address), data necessary for contact with the profile visitor (e.g. e-mail address, telephone number), data on usage behaviour (e.g. time spent on the website, websites visited, content searched for, services used), technical data (e.g. IP addresses, devices and programmes used to call up the website), content of the profile visitor (e.g. texts, photos, videos) and, if consent is given, data on the physical location of the profile visitor.
    This personal data of the profile visitor is combined in a user profile and stored on the profile visitor's end device as a file ("cookie"). Sometimes other websites may also access these user profiles in order to use and supplement the data contained therein for the targeted selection of advertising content. Those third parties that provide social media and other data processing tools for marketing purposes may also store the data contained in the user profiles on their servers.
  • Legal basis for data processing: We process personal data on the basis of our legitimate interest in communication and direct marketing within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.
  • Data processing outside the European Union: Social media operators sometimes process data outside the European Union.
  • Data subject rights: We ask our profile visitors to assert information and other data subject rights (e.g. deletion) directly with the operators of the social media if possible, as only the operators have unrestricted access to the processed data.  Of course, we will forward data protection requests (e.g. information, correction, deletion) addressed to us to the operator of the respective social media.
    Further information on the enforcement of your data subject rights, in particular on the existing possibilities to object to data processing, can be found in the privacy policy of the operator of the respective social medium.
  • Use of cookies:  The user profiles are stored as a file ("cookie") on the end device of the profile visitor. The storage of this file requires the consent of the profile visitor, which can be withdrawn at any time.
