The details are set out below in the long version of our promise.
Incidentally, by GDPR we mean the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union.

II Concrete information on the collection of personal data
1. Visiting the website
1.a) Purpose of the collection and processing of data
To keep a technical eye on what is happening on our website, we store some data (see list under ‘Details >’). This helps us, for example, to detect faults and overloads. It also gives us an indication of how to further develop our website.
The data cannot be linked to you.
Every time a user accesses a page from our website or calls up a file stored on our website, access data relating to this process are stored in a log file. Each dataset consists of:
(1) the page from which the file was requested,
(2) the name of the file,
(3) the date and time of the request,
(4) the amount of data transmitted,
(5) the access status (file transmitted, file not found, etc.),
(6) a description of the type of operating system and web browser used,
(7) the client IP address.
e use this data in order to operate our website, in particular to determine the utilisation of the website and website malfunctions, and to make adjustments or improvements. The client IP address is used for the purpose of transmitting the data requested; when no longer technically required, the client IP address will be rendered anonymous by deleting the last block of numbers (IPv4) or the last octet (IPv6).
1.b) Duration of retention
The data mentioned in 1.a) are stored every time our website is accessed. They will be deleted when we no longer need them‒ within ten weeks at the latest.
1.c) Legal basis
The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation allows us to process data in this way.
The legal basis for the temporary storage of the aforementioned data is Article 6(1)(f) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter referred to as “GDPR”). The legitimate interest is to make available our website. In accordance with Section 25(2)(2) of the Telecommunications Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDSG), your consent to these processing operations is not necessary because we would not be able to make this “telemedia service” (= the Wiethe website) available to you without these processing operations.
1.d) Possibility of objection and removal
You can let us know that you do not agree to the storage of data.
2.a) Purpose of the collection and use of data
When you visit our website, small data packages are stored on your web browser (or on the device you use to visit our website). They are called cookies. With the help of these cookies, our website can tell that this web browser has already visited the page before. Any settings that may have been made can then be made again automatically (e.g. the selected language). Cookies also help us to adapt the pages to your preferences and to speed up the display of the page.
In order to make it technically possible to visit our website, we transmit so-called cookies to the data subject’s end device. Cookies are small text files that enable the data subject’s end device to be identified, usually by recording the name of the domain from which the cookie data were sent, information on the age of the cookie and an alphanumeric identifier. Saving the cookie on the end device used – without interfering with the operating system – enables the end device to be recognised and allows us to make immediately available any possible presettings. We use this information to adapt our website and the services offered to your needs and to enable you to access our website more quickly.
2.b) Duration of retention
You can delete our cookies from your browser/device at any time. Besides that, the cookies will also be deleted automatically after different lengths of time.
The different cookies are stored for different lengths of time; however, the maximum period is two years. Cookies are stored on your local end device, not on our server, which is why the actual deletion period depends on how your browser software is configured. Please refer to the operating instructions of your browser software to find out how to delete – either ad hoc or automatically – cookies that we have set.
2.c) Legal basis
The General Data Protection Regulation allows us to set cookies.
The storage of the aforementioned data is based in part on your consent (in accordance with Section 25(1) TTDSG and Article 6(1)(a) GDPR), namely in the case of cookies that are set in order to be able to optimise the quality of our website through analysis. Cookies are also set to enable users to visit our website; in particular, a number of functionalities on our website cannot be used without cookies, since, in the absence of cookies, the user would not be recognised when changing to a different page, and language settings would be lost, for instance. The legal basis for setting these cookies is our legitimate interest in making our website available to you for your use (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR). Without these cookies, we would not be able to offer you this website (Section 25(2)(2) TTDSG).
2.d) Possibility of objection and removal
You can delete cookies yourself at any time in the browser. In addition, cookies can be rejected in the privacy settings.
3. Direct marketing
3.a) Purpose of the collection and use of data
When you buy something from us (goods or services), we receive your contact details. We will use these details to send you advertising for other products. You can object to this at any time if you want us to stop sending you advertising.
We will use the data received from the data subject in connection with the sale of goods or services in order to undertake direct marketing for our offerings. In the case of an email address, this will only take place for our own similar goods or services and where the data subject has not objected to its use, which is pointed out (inter alia hereby) during data collection; in addition, with every use, reference is made to the continued possibility of opting out.
3.b) Duration of retention
We will delete your contact details from our advertising database the moment you request us to do so. We will also delete them if more than 12 months have passed between two advertising mails.
3.c) Legal basis
The General Data Protection Regulation allows us to use contact details for advertising.

6. Google Analytics
6.a) Purpose of the collection and use of data
By using the Google Analytics service, we get an insight into the use of our website. Google is a company based in the USA. In order to create the necessary statistics, the IP address you used to visit our website is stored. However, the IP address will be processed in anonymous form. Cookies are also used (see also 2.a) to facilitate such analysis. In other words, both we and Google process this information in anonymous form.
6.b) Duration of retention
Your full IP address will only be used for the duration of a fraction of a second, i.e. for the purpose of anonymising it. The raw data for statistics will be deleted after 14 months.
Once the data are no longer needed to achieve the purpose, they will be deleted, which is the case when the anonymisation, which takes place within the European Union, has been completed. This takes less than one second.
The data sent by us and that are linked to cookies, user identifications (e.g. user IDs) or advertising IDs will be deleted automatically after 14 months. Data that have reached their storage period are deleted automatically once a month.
6.c) Legal basis
The General Data Protection Regulation allows us to analyse visits.
6.d) Possibility of objection and removal
You can prevent cookies from being set and data from being shared with Google in your browser/device or in our website’s privacy settings. But it could be that some convenient functionalities will then no longer work. A browser plug-in can even be used to prevent data being shared with Google: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
The data subject can prevent cookies from being saved by changing the appropriate setting in the browser software; we point out to the data subject, however, that this may mean that he or she will not be able to use the full functionality of this website. The data subject can also prevent the data generated by the cookie relating to the use of the website (including the IP address) from being recorded and used by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available from this link [http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de].
7.a) Purpose of the collection and use of data
We use the statistics service WiredMinds to gain an insight into the use of our website. To do this, the IP address you used to visit our website, among other things, is stored. However, the IP address is shortened, and can no longer be linked to you. In other words, both we and WiredMinds process this anonymous information.
7.b) Duration of retention
Your full IP address will only be used for a fraction of a second, i.e. for the purpose of anonymising it.
7.c) Legal basis
The General Data Protection Regulation and the German Telemedia Act allow us to analyse visits in this way.
