The specific nature of the data processing depends on whether you are just visiting our website or whether, for example, you use the contact form provided there.

The following personal data is collected on our website:

a. When accessing our website

When you access our website https://www.jg-ffm.de/en, the browser you are using automatically sends information from your device to our website server. This information is stored temporarily in a so-called log file. The following information is collected without any action on your part and is stored until it is automatically deleted:

  • IP address of the requesting device,
  • Date and time of access,
  • Name and URL of the retrieved file,
  • Website from which you access our site (referrer URL),
  • Browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your device as well as the name of your access provider.

We process the above data for the following purposes:

  • To guarantee a smooth connection to our website,
  • To ensure that our website is easy to use,
  • To analyse the system security and stability, and
  • For other administrative purposes.

The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 section 1f GDPR. Our legitimate interest results from the aforementioned purposes of data collection. We do not use the collected data to draw conclusions about you.

b. When using our contact form and in email contact

For questions of any kind, we offer you the opportunity to contact us via a form on our website. To allow us to answer your inquiry, you will need to enter a valid email address along with your name. Any other details you provide are optional.

You can also contact us via the email addresses we provide on our website. In this case we will store the personal data transmitted with the email.

The processing of data for the purpose of contact with us is based on your freely given consent as per Art. 6 section 1a GDPR.

The legal basis for the processing of the data transferred in the course of sending an email is Art. 6 section 1f GDPR.

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was collected. Personal data from the input mask of the contact form and from the email will be deleted when the respective conversation with the website user or their inquiry is completed, i.e. when it is clear from the circumstances that the issue in question has been conclusively clarified.

The processing of this data is based on your freely given consent as per Art. 6 section 1a GDPR. You can withdraw this consent at any time by sending us an email to this effect or clicking the "Unsubscribe" link in the newsletter email.

5. Google Analytics

On our website we use the Google Analytics service from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, also called "Google" below, to analyse the browsing behaviour of our users.

Google Analytics uses cookies to analyse the use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is normally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google abbreviates your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other countries party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to its transfer. Only in exceptional cases will the complete IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website and compile reports on the website activity, and to provide the website operator with other services associated with use of the website and the internet.

The following data is stored when you access individual pages of our website:

  • Two bytes of the IP address of the requesting system
  • The accessed individual pages of our website
  • Website from which you access our website (referrer URL)
  • Subpages opened from the accessed web page
  • Time spent on the website
  • How often the web page was accessed

Processing the aforementioned personal data allows us to analyse the browsing behaviour of visitors to our website. By evaluating this data we can compile information on the use of the individual components of our website, which helps us to continually improve the site and make it more user-friendly.

You can prevent the storage of cookies via the settings in your browser software; however, please be aware that this may result in not all functions of this website being fully available to you.

Furthermore, you can prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) for Google and the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Further information on terms of service and data privacy can be found at:
https://marketingplatform.google.com/about/analytics/terms/gb/ and https://policies.google.com/?hl=en&gl=de.

We would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the "anonymizeIp" extension to ensure anonymised collection of IP addresses (IP masking).

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the our analytics purposes.

6. Facebook plugin

Our website uses social plugins ("plugins") of the social network facebook.com ("Facebook"), which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.

If you open a page on our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. Facebook transfers the contents of the plugin straight to your browser, which integrates them into the website.

The integration of the plugins indicates to Facebook that you have opened the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can then match the visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, e.g. by clicking the “Like” button or leaving a comment, your browser sends the corresponding information straight to Facebook, where it is stored. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your rights in this regard and possible settings to protect your privacy are outlined in Facebook’s Data Policy.

If this button is active, i.e. the original Twitter button is visible instead of the placeholder graphic, your browser will establish a direct connection to the Twitter servers. Twitter transfers the contents of the plugin straight to your browser, which integrates them into the website. The integration of the plugin indicates to Twitter that you have opened the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into Twitter at the time, Twitter can match the visit to your Twitter account. If you interact with the plugin by clicking the “Tweet” button, your browser sends the corresponding information straight to Twitter, where it is stored. If you are not registered with Twitter or you have logged out of Twitter before you visit our website, Twitter may still be able to find out your IP address and store it. Further details of how Twitter collects and uses your data, on your rights in this regard and possible settings to protect your privacy can be found in Twitter’s Privacy Policy.

If you do not want Twitter to collect data about you via our website and link it to your data stored by Twitter, simply do not activate the corresponding button.
