On behalf of the operator of this website, Google uses this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website and Internet usage to the website operator.

You can also prevent Google from collecting and processing the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the appropriate browser plug-in.
b) When using a contact form
If you send us enquiries, your details from the enquiry form as well as the contact data provided by you are stored by us for the purpose of processing your enquiry and possible follow-up questions. We do not pass this data on to third parties without your consent.
Your data is processed on the basis of your consent. You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal notification by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Your data remains with us until you request erasure, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your enquiry has been processed). Legal retention periods remain unaffected.
c) Data processing for the delivery of newsletters and mailings
If you subscribe to a newsletter or mailing offered on the website, the data provided in the newsletter or mailing registration is used for sending the newsletter, unless you consent to further use. You agree that we may also transfer this personal data to other Arbonia Group companies and that other Arbonia Group companies may process this data for the same purpose and send you newsletters on the entire range of services offered by Arbonia Group companies. We do not pass on your personal data to third parties outside the Arbonia Group companies.
The processing takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent. You can revoke your consent to the storage of data, e-mail address and their use to send the newsletter at any time by using the unsubscribe option provided in the newsletter.

Data stored by us for another purpose or another consent (e.g. e-mail addresses for another newsletter, or for further functions on the webpage) remain unaffected by this.
We may cooperate with other Arbonia Group companies and other third-party data processors (e.g. IT service providers). Any transfer of personal data is carried out in accordance with the applicable data protection laws, and appropriate contractual, technical and organisational measures exist.
3. Disclosure of personal data and data processing by third parties
In principle, we use personal data exclusively for internal business purposes. For this purpose, however, we may also transfer personal data to other Arbonia Group companies, and other Arbonia Group companies may also process this data for the same purpose. We do not pass on your personal data to third parties outside the Arbonia Group companies unless this is necessary for the fulfilment of the contract, legally permissible or you have consented.
However, we may enter into agreements with other companies or persons (“processors”) to delegate to them the performance of certain tasks on our behalf. It may be necessary for us to grant processors access to personal data. Our processors are obligated to maintain the confidentiality of the personal data transferred and may not use the information for purposes other than those specified by us.
Any such transfer of personal data is carried out in accordance with applicable data protection laws and we ensure that appropriate contractual, technical and organisational measures are in place.
4. Third-party services or content on our website
The respective provider of the services or content may also collect further data and process these for its own purposes. To the best of our knowledge, we have configured the services and content of providers who process data for their own purposes in such a way that communication is either blocked for purposes other than the presentation of the services or content on our website, or that personal data is only collected if you have decided to use the respective service. However, because we have no control over data collected and processed by third parties, we are unable to provide binding information about the extent and purpose of such processing of your data by the respective third-party providers.
a) Website links
Our website uses functions of Google Maps and Youtube to increase the functionality of our website.
Notes on Google Maps
Our website uses functions of the map service Google Maps. To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to store your IP address. This information may be transferred to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. We have no influence on this data transfer.
The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers and an easy retrievability of the places indicated by us on the website. This represents a legitimate interest.
Notes on Youtube
Our website uses functions of the YouTube website operated by Google. When you visit one of our web pages equipped with a YouTube plug-in, a connection is established to YouTube’s servers. The YouTube server receives the information which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you can allow YouTube to directly assign your surfing behaviour to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account. We point out that we have no knowledge of the content of the transferred data and their use by Youtube.
YouTube is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest.
c) Social plug-ins
In addition, our website uses functions of so-called social plug-ins (“buttons”). Social media such as Facebook allow users of these social media platforms to create links on their social media profiles to store them or share them with their social media contacts.
When you visit our website, the social media buttons are disabled by default. Without your intervention, no data is sent to the respective social networks. Before you can use these buttons, you must activate them by clicking on them. They remain active until you deactivate them again.
After their activation, a direct connection to the server of the respective social network is established. The content of the button is then transmitted directly from the social network to your browser and integrated into the website by it. Once a button is activated, the social network can retrieve data whether or not you interact with the button. If you are logged in to a social network, the network can assign your visit to the website to your user account.
If you are a social network user and do not want it to combine data from your visit to our website with your user data, you must log out of the respective social network before activating the buttons.
We have no influence on the extent of the data collected by the social networks via their buttons. The data usage guidelines of social networks provide information about the purpose and extent of the data they collect, how that data is processed and used, the rights you have, and the settings you can use to protect your privacy. For further information on the scope and purpose of such a collection and processing of your data, please refer to the data protection information of the providers, whose services and / or content we make responsible for the protection of your data in this context.
Notes on Facebook plug-ins (Like & Share button)
Our website uses functions of the social network Facebook. You can recognise the Facebook plug-ins by the Facebook logo or the “Like” button on our page. When you visit our pages and are logged in to Facebook, the plug-in establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the Facebook “Like” button while logged in to your Facebook account, you can link the content of our pages to your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to assign the visit of our pages to your user account. You can prevent this by logging out of your Facebook account. We would like to point out that we have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data and its use by Facebook.
5. Deletion of personal data
As a matter of principle, your data is deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the intended purpose or if you revoke your consent or object to their use for legitimate reasons. Beyond this point in time, data is only stored if this is necessary in accordance with a statutory provision to which we are subject (e.g. tax and commercial law regulations) or if data is required to substantiate, exercise or defend legal claims.
All information you provide to us is stored on servers within the European Union, the EEA and Switzerland. We attach particular importance to ensuring that an appropriate level of data protection is guaranteed in the respective country.
We use appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved and adapted in line with technological developments.
However, we would like to point out that data transfer over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can be subject to security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
