with only one exception: a transfer takes place when there is a legal obligation to public bodies, such as law enforcement authorities or tax consultants. In addition, a transfer to third parties will only take place if this is necessary for the above-mentioned purposes and legally permitted or if you have given your prior consent. Furthermore, we are obliged to transmit data to official recipients in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 c GDPR in the event of prescribed reliability checks. In the case of employment of applicants from third countries, data is transferred to the central foreign and specialist placement service.
Categories of recipients of personal data are: technical operators of the website, the data controller for the website within the meaning of the GDPR, affiliated group companies, processors within the meaning of Art. 28 GDPR.
Duration of storage
The storage period of your personal data depends on the legal retention periods or the existence of any consent you may have given.
Right to information
You have extensive rights with regard to the processing of your personal data. It is particularly important to us to familiarise you with these rights. Right to information: you have the right to information about the data stored with us, in particular, for what purpose the processing takes place and how long the data is stored (Article 15 GDPR).
Right to rectify inaccurate data: you have the right to demand that we rectify any personal data concerning you without delay if it is inaccurate (Article 16 GDPR).
Right of deletion: you have the right to request that we delete your personal data. These conditions stipulate that you can request the deletion of your data if, for example, we no longer need the personal data for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed, if we should process the data unlawfully or if you have legitimately objected to the processing or if there is a statutory obligation to delete them (Article 17 GDPR).
Right to limitation of processing: you have the right to request a limitation of the processing of your data. This right exists in particular for the duration of the review if you have disputed the accuracy of the data concerning you and in the event that you request limited processing instead of deletion in the case of an existing right to deletion. Furthermore, the processing will be restricted if the data is no longer required for the purposes pursued by us, but you need the data to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or if the successful exercise of an objection between us and you is disputed (Article 18 GDPR).
Right to data transfer: you have the right to receive from us the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to us, in a structured, common, machine-readable format (Article 20 GDPR), insofar as it has not already been deleted.
Right of objection: you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation (Article 21 GDPR). We will stop processing your personal data unless we can prove compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If you wish to object to the processing of your personal data, please contact us in writing at
Ernst Klimmer GmbH
or by email to
Right of appeal to a supervisory authority
If you are of the opinion that the processing of your personal data violates the General Data Protection Regulation, please contact the Data Protection Officer mentioned above or the competent data protection supervisory authority.
We maintain online presences within social networks and platforms in order to be able to communicate with customers, interested parties and users there and to inform them about our services.
We would like to point out that user data may be processed outside the European Union. This can result in risks for users, as it could, for example, make it more difficult to enforce the rights of users. With regard to US providers that are certified under the Privacy Shield, we would like to point out that by doing so they commit themselves to comply with EU data protection standards. In addition, user data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, user profiles can be created on the basis of user behaviour and the resulting interests of users. The user profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the user’s computer in which the user’s usage behaviour and interests are stored. Furthermore, data can also be stored in the user profiles independently of the devices used by the users (in particular if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them). The processing of the personal data of users takes place on the basis of our legitimate interests in effective information of the users and communication with the users in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter f. GDPR. If the users are asked by the respective providers for their consent to data processing (i.e. declare their consent e.g. by ticking a checkbox or confirming a button), the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter a., Art. 7 GDPR. For a detailed description of the respective processing operations and the opt-out options, please refer to the following linked information provided by the providers. Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be asserted most effectively directly to the providers. Only the providers have access to the users’ data and can directly take appropriate measures and give information. Should you nevertheless need help, you can contact us.
Data protection provisions regarding the application and use of Instagram
On this website, the data controller has integrated components of the service Instagram. Instagram is a service that may be classified as an audiovisual platform, which allows users to share photos and videos, as well as to disseminate such data in other social networks. The operating company of the services offered by Instagram is Instagram LLC, 1 Hacker Way, Building 14 First Floor, Menlo Park, CA, USA.
With each visit to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which an Instagram component (Insta button) was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to download a representation of the corresponding Instagram component from Instagram. During the course of this technical procedure, Instagram becomes aware of which specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Instagram, Instagram detects with every visit to our website by the data subject – and for the entire duration of their stay on our website – which specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject. This information is collected through the Instagram component and is associated with the respective Instagram account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Instagram buttons integrated on our website, then Instagram matches this data and information with the personal Instagram user account of the data subject and stores the personal data.
Instagram receives information via the Instagram component that the data subject has visited our website, provided that the data subject is logged in at Instagram at the time of the visit to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Instagram button or not. If such a transmission of information to Instagram is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she can prevent this by logging off from their Instagram account before accessing our website.
Data protection provisions regarding the application and use of Google Analytics (with anonymiser function)
On our website, we, the website operator, have integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the anonymiser function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. A web analytics service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimisation of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.
The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
For the web analytics through Google Analytics, we use the application „_gat._anonymizeIp“. By means of this application the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is abridged by Google and anonymised when accessing our websites from a Member State of the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services concerning the use of our website for us.
Google Analytics stores a cookie in the information technology system of the data subject. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of our website. With each visit to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will automatically submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of online analysis to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the data subject, which enables Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently to create commission settlements.
The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject. With each visit to our Internet site, such personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, will be transmitted to Google in Ireland. This personal data is stored by Google in Ireland. Google may pass the personal data collected through this technical procedure to third parties under certain circumstances.
The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of their web browser and thus permanently prevent the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser being used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.
In addition, the data subject has the possibility of objecting to – and preventing – the collection of the data generated by Google Analytics, which is related to the use of this website, as well as the processing of this data by Google. For this purpose, the data subject must download and install a browser add-on via this link:
Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is further explained under the following link https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.
Campaign Manager (formerly DoubleClick by Google)
Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected through the use of this tool by Google and therefore inform you to the best of our knowledge: by integrating Campaign Manager, Google is informed that you have accessed the corresponding part of our website or clicked on one of our ads. If you are registered with a service provided by Google, Google may associate the visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is a chance that the provider will find and store your IP address.
In addition, the Campaign Manager (DoubleClick Floodlight) cookies we use enable us to understand whether you are performing certain actions on our website after you have viewed or clicked one of our display / video ads on Google or on another platform through Campaign Manager (conversion tracking). Campaign Manager uses this cookie to understand the content that you have interacted with on our websites so that we can later send you targeted advertising.
You can prevent participation in this tracking process in several ways: a) by setting your browser software accordingly, in particular, the suppression of third-party cookies will prevent you from receiving any third-party advertisements; b) by disabling the cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain www.googleadservices.com https://www.google.de/settings/ads,, which will be deleted if you delete your cookies; c) by deactivating the interest-based advertisements of the providers that are part of the „About Ads“ self-regulation campaign via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices,, this setting will be deleted if you delete your cookies; d) by permanently disabling cookies in your browsers (Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome) via the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin, e) by means of appropriate cookie settings. We advise that in this case you may not be able to fully use all features of this online service.
