The GSD Verpackungen Gerhard Schürholz GmbH has implemented – acting as the controller responsible for the processing – various different technical and organizational measures to ensure a protection of the personal data processed via this website as completely as possible. Nevertheless, web-based data transfer may generally have security loopholes, so that an absolute protection cannot be guaranteed.

Another legitimate interest would be, inter alia, an obligation of providing evidence in proceedings in accordance with the AGG (German Act of Equal Treatment).
10. Data protection regulations on the use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)
The controller has integrated on its website the component Google Analytics (with anonymization function). Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, compiling and analysis of data on the behaviour of users of websites. A web analysis service collects data, inter alia, from which website a data subject had accessed a website (so-called Referrer), which sub-sites of the website have been accessed or how frequently and for which period of time a sub-site had been looked at. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
The company operating the Google Analytic component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. The operating body is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Irland.
The controller uses the supplement „_gat._anonymizeIp“ for the web analysis via Google Analytics. When using the supplement, the IP address of the internet connection of the data subject will be cut and anonymized, if the access is effected to our website from a Member State of the European Union or from another State as a member of the Treaty on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is the analysis of the user flows on our website. Google uses, inter alia, the data and information collected to analyse the use of our website, to compile for us online reports showing the activities on our website and to render additional services in connection with the use of our website.
Google Analytics will set a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. We have already explained above the nature of cookies. The setting of a cookie will enable Google to carry out an analysis of the use of our website. Any time the individual pages of this website are called, which is operated by the controller and on which a Google Analytics component had been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will be automatically instructed by the Google Analytics component to transfer data for the purpose of an online analysis to Google. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Google will obtain knowledge about personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which will allow to Google, inter alia, to trace the origin of the users and clicks and to enable the subsequent commission settlements.
The cookies are used to store personal data and information, for example access time, place, from which the website has been accessed and the frequency of the visits of our website by the data subject. With each visit of our website, these personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data will be stored by Google in the United States of America. Under certain circumstances, Google will pass on these personal data collected via technical procedures to third parties.
The data subject may, as explained above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by way of a relevant setting of the internet browser used and may thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the internet browser used would also prevent, that Google would set a cookie onto the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, any cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or another software program.
In addition, the data subject has the option to object to a collection of the data generated by Google Analytics with respect to the use of this website as well as to the processing of such data through Google and to prevent such processing. For this purpose, the data subject has to download and install a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout . This browser add-on will inform Google Analytics via Java Script, that it is not allowed to transmit data and information to Google Analytics with respect to the visits of websites. The installation of the browser add-on is regarded by Google as an objection. If the information technology system of the data subject will be deleted, formatted or newly installed at a later date, the data subject has to install the browser add-ons again to deactivate Google Analytics. Insofar as the browser add-on will be deinstalled or deactivated by the data subject or by another person attributed to the sphere of influence of the data subject, it is possible to newly install or activate the browser add-ons.
Further information and the valid data protection regulations of Google can be called under https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and under http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html . Google Analytics will be explained in detail under this link https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/ .
You will be able to prevent the collection of your data through Google Analytics by clicking onto the following link. This way, an Opt-Out cookie will be set preventing the collection of your data with respect to any future visits of this website:
11. Data protection regulations on the use and application of YouTube
The controller has integrated on its website components of YouTube. YouTube is an internet video portal enabling video publishers the cost-free posting of video clips and the cost-free viewing, evaluation and commenting of such video clips through others. YouTube allows the publishing of all kinds of videos, thus complete movies and televisions broadcasts as well as music videos, trailers or videos generated by users themselves can be called via the internet portal.
The company operating YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube LLC is a daughter company of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. The operating body is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Irland.
With each call of one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) had been integrated, the internet browser of the information technology system of the data subject will be automatically instructed by the respective YouTube component to download a representation of the respective YouTube component from YouTube. Further information on YouTube can be obtained under https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/ . Within the scope of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google will be informed, which concrete sub-site of our website is visited by the data subject.
Insofar as the data subject is logged in with YouTube at the same time, YouTube will identify, which concrete sub-site of our website is visited by the data subject, namely as soon as the sub-site is called containing a YouTube video. These data are collected by YouTube and Google and will be assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.
YouTube and Google will receive an information via the YouTube component any time the data subject will visit our website, if the data subject will be logged in with YouTube at the same time as calling our website; this will happen irrespective of whether the data subject will click onto a YouTube video or not. If the data subject does not want such a transmission of this information to YouTube and Google, the data subject will be able to prevent this by way of logging out of his/her YouTube account before calling our website.
The privacy statement published by YouTube, which can be called under https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ , explain in detail the collection, processing and use of personal data through YouTube and Google.
12. Legal basis of processing
Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR is used by our company as the legal basis for processing procedures, for which we obtain a consent for a specific purpose of processing. If the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a contract, where the data subject is a party to the contract, such as for processing procedures required for the delivery of goods or the rendering of another performance or counter-performance, such processing will be based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same is applicable for those processing procedures required to perform pre-contractual measures, such as in case of inquiries for our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing will be based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor would be injured on our premises and if – as a consequence – name, age, health insurance data or other vitally important information would have to be submitted to a doctor, a hospital or other third parties. In such a case, the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR.
Finally, processing procedures may be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Any processing procedures not covered by any of the legal bases mentioned above would be performed on that legal basis, if the processing will be required to protect a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, unless the interests, basic rights and basic freedoms of the data subject will override such interest. Such processing procedures are, in particular, allowed to us, because these have been particularly mentioned by the European Legislator. The legislator has expressed the opinion, that a legitimate interest could be assumed, if the data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47, sent. 2 GDPR).
13. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by controller or by a third party
If the processing of personal data is based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business activities to the benefit of the well-being of all of our employees and our shareholders.
14. Duration of retention of personal data
The criterion for the duration of the retention of personal data is the relevant statutory period of retention. Upon the expiration of the period, the respective data will be routinely deleted, unless such data are required for the contract fulfilment or contract initiation.
15. Statutory or contractual regulations for the provision of personal data; requirement for the contract conclusion; obligation of the data subject to provide personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide data
We would like to advise you, that the provision of personal data is sometimes obligatory (e.g. tax regulations) or may result from contractual provisions (e.g. data on contractual partner). In some cases, it may be necessary to conclude a contract, that a data subject will provide to us personal data, which have to be subsequently processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide personal data to us, if our company is going to conclude a contract with such data subject. The failure to provide personal data would have the consequence, that it would not be possible to conclude the contract with the data subject. Before providing personal data through the data subject, the data subject shall contact one of our employees. Our employee will advise the data subject in the individual case, whether the provision of personal data is required by law or under the contract or required for the conclusion of the contract, whether an obligation exists to provide the personal data and which consequences the failure to provide the personal data would have
16. Existence of an automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we refrain from an automatic decision-making or a profiling.
17. SSL encryption
This website uses an SSL encryption in order to secure and protect the transmission of confidential contents, such as inquiries addressed to us as the operator of the website. You will recognize an encrypted connection, because the address line of the browser will change from http:// to https:// and a lock symbol will be shown in your browser line.
If the SSL encryption is activated, the data transmitted by you to us cannot be read by third parties.
18. Server logfiles
The provider of the websites automatically collects and stores data in so-called server logfiles automatically transferred to us by your browser. These data are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing processor
- Time of the server request
These data cannot be assigned to specific persons. These data will not be merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to subsequently check these data in case of concrete indications for an illegal use.
19. Google Maps
This website uses the product Google Maps of Google Inc. When using this website, you herewith agree to the collection, editing as well as use of the data automatically collected through Google Inc, through their representatives and third parties.
The company operating the Google Maps component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. The operating body is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Irland.
This privacy statement has been generated by the privacy statement generator of the DGD Deutsche Gesellschaft für Datenschutz GmbH and has been subsequently individualized.
20. Online Presence in Social Media
We provide online presences in social media, in order to be able to communicate with and inform interested persons and users about us. The data of users may be processed in this case through the service provider outside the territory of the European Union. This may result in risks for the users, because this may cause difficulties in the enforcement of rights of the users, for example.
In general, the data of the users may be processed by the service provider for market research and advertising. This way, the interests of users resulting from the usage behaviour, for example, may be used to place advertisements inside and outside the platforms, which may match the interests of the users. For this purpose, cookies will mainly be stored on the computers of the users. In addition, also data may be stored in the usage profiles irrespective of the equipment used (in particular, if the users are members of the relevant platforms and are logged in).
We inform you in the following section about our processing of your Personal Data within the scope of the online presences provided by us. The European Court of Justice has confirmed the joint responsibility of the service provider and the website operator in its judgement of June 5, 2018.The social media website visited by you offers to you the opportunity to react to our articles, to post comments, to provide an own user post and to submit to us private messages with your personal concern. The data stated by you in this connection and possibly accessible by us (e.g. user name, photos, possibly interests, contact data) will be exclusively used by us for the purposes of customer and interest communication.
