Privacy Policy

1. Data protection at a glance

General notices

The following notices provide a simple overview of what happens to your personal data when you visit my website. "Personal data" means all data which identifies you personally. Further information on data protection can be found in the privacy policy below this text.

Data collection on my website

Who is responsible for collecting data on this website?

The website operator is responsible for collecting data on this website. Her contact details can be found on the legal notice page of this website.

How do I collect your data?

One way in which I collect your data is when you provide me with such data. This can, for example, be data which you provide by e-mail.

Other data are automatically collected by my IT systems when you visit the website. These data are primarily technical data (e.g. Internet browser, operating system or time when the page was accessed). These data are collected automatically as soon as you access my website.

What do I use your data for?

Some of the data are collected in order to ensure that the website works properly. Other data can be used to analyse your user behaviour.

Which rights do you have regarding your data?

You have the right to be informed, free of charge, about the source and recipients of the data saved about your person at any time as well as about the purpose of data processing. You also have the right to ask for these data to be rectified, restricted or erased. Please contact me at the address provided on the legal notice page at any time should you have any further questions regarding data protection. You also have a right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.

Analysis tools and third-party tools

When you visit my website your online behaviour can be statistically evaluated. This is done primarily using cookies and through the use of what are known as "analytics programs". The analysis of your online behaviour usually takes place anonymously; your online behaviour cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis or prevent it taking place by not using certain tools. Detailed information on this can be found in the following Privacy Policy.

You can object to this analysis. I will inform you about the ways in which you can object in the Privacy Policy.

2. General notices and mandatory information

Data protection

The operator of this website takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. I treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection provisions as well as this Privacy Policy.

When you use this website, various personal data are collected. "Personal data" means data which identifies you personally. This Privacy Policy explains which data I collect and what I use them for. It also explains how I do this and the purposes for which I do this.

I wish to point out that transmitting data on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can be subject to security vulnerabilities. It is not possible to completely protect the data from access by third parties.

Responsible body

The responsible body for the data processing on this website is:

Karen Rückert
Legal Translations
Otto-Hahn-Str. 43
D - 73249 Wernau
Telephone: 07153 5721278
E-mail: info@legal-translations-rueckert.com

The responsible body is the natural or legal person who, alone or together with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing of personal data (e.g. name, e-mail addresses, etc.).

Withdrawal of your consent to data processing

Many data processing procedures are only possible with your express consent. You can withdraw any consent you have already granted at any time. An informal e-mail is sufficient for this purpose. The data processing which took place before you exercised your right to withdraw consent remains lawful.

Right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory body

In the event of personal data breaches, the data subject also has a right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. The responsible supervisory authority for data protection matters is the data protection officer of the federal state in which the company is established. A list of the data protection officers and their contact details is available here: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.

Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data, which I automatically process on the basis of your consent or for the purpose of performing a contract, in a commonly used and machine-readable format or to have these data transmitted to a third party. If you ask to have the data transmitted directly to another controller, this request will only be granted where technically feasible.

Information, restriction, erasure

In the framework of the applicable statutory provisions you have the right, at any time, to information, free of charge, about the personal data saved about you, the source of such data and the recipients as well as the purpose of data processing and, where appropriate, a right to rectification, restriction or erasure of these data. Please contact me at the address provided on the legal notice page at any time should you have any further questions regarding personal data.

Objection to marketing e-mails

Use of the contact details published in the framework of the duty to provide a legal notice for the transmission of unsolicited advertising and information materials is hereby expressly excluded. The operator of the website expressly reserves the right to take legal action where advertising information, such as spam e-mails, is sent which has not been requested.

3. Data collection on my website

Cookies

Some of the webpages use what are known as "cookies". Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make my website more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer by your browser.

Most of the cookies I use are what are known as "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies make it possible for me to recognise your browser on your next visit.

You can change the settings in your browser in such a way that you are informed before cookies are set and only allow cookies in individual cases, that cookies are excluded for certain cases or in general and that cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. When cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.

Cookies which are required for the purpose of implementing electronic communication procedures or for the purpose of providing certain functions you request are saved on the basis of point f of Art. 6(1) GDPR. The website operator has a justified interest in saving cookies in order to ensure that her website does not contain technical errors and runs in an optimal manner. Where other cookies (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your online behaviour) are stored, these are dealt with separately in this Privacy Policy.

Server log files

The website operator automatically collects and saves information in what are known as "server log files" which your browser automatically sends to me. These are:

the browser type and version

the operating system used

the referrer URL

the hostname of the computer requesting access

the time of the server request

the IP address.

These data are not amalgamated with other sources of data.

The basis for the data processing is point b of Art. 6(1) GDPR which permits the processing of data for the purpose of performance of an agreement or a pre-contractual measure.

Processing of data (client and contract data)

I collect, process and use personal data only to the extent that this is necessary for the purpose of establishing, thrashing out the content of or making changes to the legal relationship (basic data). The basis for this is point b of Art. 6(1) GDPR which permits the processing of data for the purpose of performance of an agreement or a pre-contractual measure. I only collect, process and use personal data about the use of my webpages (usage data) where this is necessary for use of the service by the user or for invoicing purposes.

The customer data collected are deleted after the end of the agreement or after the end of the business relationship. The statutory retention periods remain unaffected.

Transmission of data at the time of conclusion of an agreement for services and digital content

I only transmit personal data to third parties if this is necessary in the framework of performance of the agreement.

The data are not transmitted in any other manner or only where you have expressly granted your consent to transmission. I do not pass on your data to third parties, for marketing purposes for example, without your express consent.

The basis for the data processing is point b of Art. 6(1) GDPR which permits the processing of data for the purpose of performance of an agreement or a pre-contractual measure.

4. Analysis tools and advertising

Matomo (formerly Piwik)

This website uses the Open Source website analytics service Matomo. Matomo uses "cookies". These are text files saved on your computer which make it possible to analyse how you use the website. For this purposes, the information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is stored on my server. The IP address is anonymised before it is saved.

Matomo cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them.

The Matomo cookies are saved on the basis of point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing the user behaviour in an anonymised manner in order to optimise her website and her marketing.

The information about your use of the website generated by the cookie is not passed on to third parties. You can prevent the cookies being stored by choosing corresponding settings in your browser software; however, I wish to point out that, in this case, you may not be able to use all of the functions of this website in their entirety.

If you do not want your data to be saved and used, you can deactivate storage and use here. In this case an opt-out cookie will be stored in your browser which prevents Matomo from saving the user data. If you delete your cookies, this also leads to deletion of the Matomo opt-out cookie. The opt-out must then be reactivated when you visit my website again.
