We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. This Privacy Policy explains users the nature, scope and purpose of collection and use of personal data on our websites, and The location responsible for data processing is FECHNER Rechtsanwälte PartmbB.

The use of our websites is usually possible without providing personal data. Personal data is information with which a person may be identifiable.

Personal data is also not forwarded to third parties without your explicit consent.

Access data/server log files
With every visit to one of our websites and every downloaded file data of this process are stored in a log file (so called access data / server log files). This data includes the page, the name of the file, date and time of the request, the amount of data transferred, the access status that has been requested from the file (file transferred, file not found, etc.) as well as a description of the type of browser used and the requesting provider. These data are not personal data, so we can not trace which user has accessed which data. The otherwise often usual storage of the IP address of the user about the end of the use process, we deliberately avoid. The creation of personal user profiles is excluded with this. The stored data is used exclusively for statistical purposes with us.

Our websites are using cookies. Cookies are small files that make it possible to access your device (PC, smartphone, etc.) to store specific information, relating to the device. They are firtsly used to serve the usability of our sites and thus you. Secondly, they serve you by capturing the statistical data of website use and analysing so as to improve the sites. However, you can influence the use of cookies. Most browsers have an option with which the storage of cookies can be limited or completely prevented. We point out, however, that the user convenience of our websites may be restricted without cookies.

While contacting us (eg via email), your information is saved in order to process your request and in case follow up questions arise.

On our websites we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA - from now on "Google". Google Analytics uses cookies which are stored on your terminal device and which enable an analysis of your usage behaviour. Cookies are text files in which information is stored and which can be read out.

On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate the use of our services by you and other users and to provide us with corresponding analysis reports and to provide us with further services associated with the use of the website and the Internet. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is § 15 (3) TMG and Art. 6 (1) lit. f DS-GVO. The sessions and campaigns are terminated after a certain time and the data deleted. Sessions end after 30 minutes without activity and campaigns after six months.

The information generated by Google Analytics is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google and its subsidiaries are certified under the EU-US Privacy-Shield.
The IP anonymisation procedure activated by us (code extension "anonymizeIp") shortens Google's recorded IP addresses within the European Union before data is transmitted to the USA (so-called IP masking). Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The (shortened) IP address transmitted by your device as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. A transfer of data by Google to third parties only takes place due to legal regulations or within the scope of a data processing agreement.
