III. General information on Data processing
1. The purpose of processing personal data
We only collect and use our users’ personal data of insofar as this is necessary to provide a functional website as well as our contents and services. The collection and use of our users’ personal data takes place regularly and only with the user's consent. An exception applies in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for real reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.
2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU Data Protection Ordinance (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data. In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis. In the event of the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person requiring the processing of personal data, article 6(1)(d) GDPR serves as the legal basis. If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.
IV. Data erasure and storage time
The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

(2) the legislation of the Union or of the Member States to which the person responsible is subject is admissible and that legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests; or

VIII. Data protection provisions for the use of Google / Youtube
1. Data protection provisions on the application and use of Google Analytics
Schwarzer has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) on its website and on some of the mobile applications we offer. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis makes reference to the survey, collection and evaluation of data about the behavior of visitors of Internet pages. Among other information, a web analysis service collects data on the website from which a data subject came (the so-called referrer), what sub-pages the data subject visited, how often the data subject accessed each sub-page and how long the data subject spent viewing each sub-page. Web analytics are mainly used for website optimization purposes and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising. The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy , Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. We use the addition “_ gat ._ anonymizeIp ” for web analysis via Google Analytics. The IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned is then shortened and anonymized by Google if our Internet pages are accessed from a member state of the European Union or from another signatory 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 that show the activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website. Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. The type of this cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed by the person responsible for processing and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically triggered by the respective Google Analytics component in order to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google gains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which is used, among other things, to trace the origin of the visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission accounting.
