5. Objection or revocation against the processing of your data
- If you have given your consent to the processing of your data, you can revoke this at any time. Such a revocation influences the permissibility of processing your personal data after you have given it to us.
- Insofar as we base the processing of your personal data on the balancing of interests, you may object to the processing. This is the case if processing is not required especially to fulfil a contract with you, which we describe in the following description of the functions. When exercising such objection, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we would otherwise have done. In the event of your justified objection, we will examine the situation and either stop or adjust the processing of your data or point out to you our compelling reasons justifying protection, on the basis of which we will continue the processing.

9. Analysis tools
- Tracking Tool
The tracking measures listed below and used by us are carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 letter f DS-GVO. The tracking measures we use are intended to ensure that our website is designed to meet requirements and is continually optimized. Secondly, we use tracking measures to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our services for you. These interests are to be regarded as legitimate in terms of the aforementioned regulation.
The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be obtained from the corresponding tracking tools.
- Google Analytics
For the purpose of designing and continuously optimizing our website, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter “Google”). In this context, anonymized user profiles are created and cookies (see point 4) are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as
- browser type/ version,
- the operating system used,
- referrer URL (the previously visited page),
- host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
- time of the server request,
is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports about website activities and to provide further services associated with the use of the website and the Internet for the purposes of market research and demand-oriented design of these Internet pages. This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of the company. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other Google data. The IP addresses are anonymized so that an identification is not possible (IP masking).
You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).

- Google Adwords Conversion Tracking
We also use Google Conversion Tracking to statistically record and evaluate the use of our website for the purpose of optimizing it for you. Google Adwords will set a cookie (see paragraph 8) on your computer if you have accessed our website via a Google ad.
These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of the Adwords customer's website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page.
Each Adwords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be traced through the websites of Adwords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Adwords customers see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that personally identifies users.

The collected data, which may also contain personal data, is transmitted to wiredminds or collected directly by wiredminds. wiredminds may use information left behind by visits to the websites to create anonymous user profiles. The data obtained in this way will not be used to personally identify the visitor to this website without the express consent of the person concerned and will not be combined with personal data about the holder of the pseudonym. If IP addresses are recorded, they are made anonymous immediately by deleting the last numeric block.

If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. You can tell whether a particular page of our website is transmitted in encrypted form by the closed display of the key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser.
We also use suitable technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.

In these instances, we agree the contracts that are required for order processing.
