Therefore, compliance with the legal requirements for data protection has a particularly high priority for us.
On principle, it is possible to use the SKZ websites without supplying any personal information. However, if a data subject wishes to make use of specific services of our company via our website, processing of personal data may become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, the data subject generally has to consent to us processing their data.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and the applicable national data protection regulations. In this privacy notice, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data that we collect, use and process. This privacy notice will also inform data subjects of their rights.
The SKZ as the data controller has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures in order to ensure that all personal data processed via this website is protected as comprehensively as possible. Nevertheless, internet-based transferral of data is in principle subject to security vulnerabilities, so absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

The responsibility rests with the respective operators of external sites. At the time of creating the external links, no violations were found. Permanent monitoring of external content for legal violations without concrete evidence cannot be reasonably expected from us.

14 Data protection provisions concerning the application and use of Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)
The data controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is surveying, collecting and analysing data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data on the website from which a data subject has accessed a website ("referrer"), which sub-pages of the website have been accessed or how often and for how long a sub-page has been viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and for cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.
Operating company of Google Analytics component is the Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.
The data controller uses the suffix "gat.anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. Using this addition, Google shortens and anonymises the IP address of the data subject when accessing our Internet pages from a Member State of the European Union or from another signatory state to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports showing us the activities on our websites, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the person in question. Cookies have already been explained above. The placement of this cookie enables Google to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which is used by Google, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission settlements.
Cookies are used to store personal information, such as the time of access, the location from which access came and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject. Whenever you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose such personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.
The data subject can prevent cookies being set by our website at any time, as already described above, by using an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and therefore permanently object to cookies being set. Setting the Internet browser used in this way would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already placed by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programmes.
Furthermore, it is possible for the data subject to object to and prevent the collection of data generated by Google Analytics relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. To do this, the data subject must download and install a browser add-on via the link tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout

16 Data protection provisions on the use and application of Facebook
The controller has integrated components of the company Facebook on this website. Facebook is a social network.
A social network is a social meeting place operated on the Internet, an online community that generally enables users to communicate and interact with each other in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for exchanging opinions and experiences or enables the internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Among other things, Facebook allows users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friend requests.
The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. If a data subject lives outside the USA or Canada, the controller of personal data is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.
By each call of one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective Facebook component to download a representation of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook.
A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Facebook receives information about which specific sub-page of our website is visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognises which specific sub-page of our website the data subject is visiting each time the data subject calls up our website and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject activates one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the "Like" button, or if the data subject posts a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and stores this personal data.
Facebook always receives information via the Facebook component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged into Facebook at the same time as calling up our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Facebook, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her Facebook account before accessing our website.
The data policy published by Facebook, which can be accessed at de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains which setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, various applications are available that make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Such applications can be used by the data subject to suppress data transmission to Facebook.
17 Data protection provisions on the use and application of LinkedIn
The controller has integrated components of the LinkedIn Corporation on this website. LinkedIn is an Internet-based social network that allows users to connect with existing business contacts and to make new business contacts. Over 400 million registered people use LinkedIn in more than 200 countries. This makes LinkedIn currently the largest platform for business contacts and one of the most visited websites in the world.
With each individual call-up of our website that is equipped with a LinkedIn component (LinkedIn plug-in), this component causes the browser used by the person concerned to download a corresponding representation of the component from LinkedIn. Further information on LinkedIn plug-ins can be found at developer.linkedin.com/plugins. As part of this technical procedure, LinkedIn receives information about which specific sub-page of our website is visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged in to LinkedIn at the same time, LinkedIn recognises which specific sub-page of our website the data subject is visiting with each call-up of our website by the data subject and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the LinkedIn component and assigned by LinkedIn to the respective LinkedIn account of the data subject. If the data subject activates a LinkedIn button integrated on our website, LinkedIn assigns this information to the personal LinkedIn user account of the data subject and stores this personal data.
LinkedIn always receives information via the LinkedIn component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is simultaneously logged into LinkedIn at the time of calling up our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the LinkedIn component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to LinkedIn, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her LinkedIn account before accessing our website.
18 Data protection provisions on the use and application of Xing
The controller has integrated components of Xing on this website. Xing is an Internet-based social network that allows users to connect with existing business contacts and to make new business contacts. Individual users can create a personal profile of themselves on Xing. Companies can, for example, create company profiles or publish job offers on Xing.
The operating company of Xing is XING SE, Dammtorstraße 30, 20354 Hamburg, Germany.
Each time one of the individual pages of this website operated by the controller is called up and on which a Xing component (Xing plug-in) has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Xing component to download a representation of the corresponding Xing component from Xing. Further information on the Xing plug-ins can be found at dev.xing.com/plugins. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Xing receives information about which specific sub-page of our website is visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged in to Xing at the same time, Xing recognises which specific sub-page of our website the data subject is visiting each time the data subject calls up our website and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the Xing component and assigned by Xing to the respective Xing account of the data subject. If the data subject activates one of the Xing buttons integrated on our website, for example the "Share" button, Xing assigns this information to the personal Xing user account of the data subject and stores this personal data.
Xing always receives information via the Xing component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is simultaneously logged into Xing at the time of calling up our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Xing component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Xing, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her Xing account before accessing our website.
The data protection provisions published by Xing, which can be accessed at www.xing.com/privacy, provide information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by Xing. Furthermore, Xing has published data protection information for the XING Share button at www.xing.com/app/share;
19 Duration for which the personal data will be stored
The criterion for the duration for which the personal data will be stored is the statutory retention period in question. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted if it is no longer required to fulfil the contract or for initiating a contract.
20 Legal or contractual provisions to provide the personal data
We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). In some cases, it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded if a data subject provides us with personal data which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company enters into a contract with him/her. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Prior to the provision of personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contractually or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and about what consequences failure to provide the personal data would have.
