Thank you for your interest in our company. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for Anker Schroeder ASDO GmbH. The use of the Internet pages of the Anker Schroeder ASDO GmbH is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special services of our enterprise via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If processing of personal data is necessary and if there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the Anker Schroeder ASDO GmbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration.
As the controller, the Anker Schroeder ASDO GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can always be subject to security vulnerabilities, so that 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.

9. data protection provisions on the use and application of Getty Images images
The controller has integrated components of the company Getty Images on this website. Getty Images is an American picture agency. A picture agency is a company that offers pictures and other picture material on the market. Picture agencies usually market photographs, illustrations and film material. Various customers, in particular website operators, editorial departments of print and TV media and advertising agencies, license the images they use via a picture agency.
The operating company of the Getty Images components is Getty Images International, Ist Floor, The Herbert Building, The Park, Carrickmines, Dublin 18, Ireland.
Getty Images permits the (possibly free) embedding of stock images. Embedding is the incorporation or integration of specific third-party content, for example text, video or image data, which is provided by a third-party website and then appears on the user's own website. A so-called embedding code is used for embedding. An embedding code is an HTML code that is integrated into an Internet page by an Internet page operator. If an embedding code has been integrated by an Internet site operator, the external content of the other Internet site is displayed immediately by default as soon as an Internet site is visited. To display the external content, the external content is loaded directly from the other website. Getty Images provides further information on embedding content under the link http://www.gettyimages.de/resources/embed.
Through the technical implementation of the embedding code, which enables the display of the images from Getty Images, the IP address of the internet connection through which the data subject accesses our website is transmitted to Getty Images. Furthermore, Getty Images records our website, the browser type used, the browser language, the time and the length of the access. In addition, Getty Images may collect navigation information, i.e. information about which of our sub-pages the data subject has visited and which links have been clicked on, as well as other inter-actions that the data subject has carried out when visiting our website. This data may be stored and analysed by Getty Images.
Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Getty Images can be found at http://www.gettyimages.de/enterprise/privacy-policy.

The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers and an easy location of the places indicated by us on the website. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
11. data protection provisions on the use and application of Google Fonts
This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Park-way, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

Google Web Fonts are used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer.
This site uses Google Analytics to analyse website usage. The data obtained from this is used to optimise our website and advertising measures.
Google Analytics is provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google processes website usage data on our behalf and is contractually obliged to take measures to ensure the security and confidentiality of the data processed.
During your visit to the website, the following data is recorded, among others:
· Pages viewed
· The achievement of "website goals
· Your behaviour on the pages (for example, length of stay, clicks, scroll hooks)
· Your approximate location (country and city)

13. Legal basis of the processing
Art. 6 1 lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 1 lit. b DS-GVO.
The same applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which the processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 1 lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and his or her name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In that case, the processing would be based on Art. 6 1 lit. d DS-GVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 1 lit. f DS-GVO. This is the legal basis for processing operations that are not covered by any of the above.
The processing operations are covered by the aforementioned legal bases if the processing is necessary for the protection of a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, the legislator took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47, sentence 2 of the GDPR).
14. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 1 lit. f of the GDPR, our legitimate interest is to conduct our business for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.
15. Duration for which personal data is stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of this period, the relevant data will be routinely deleted if it is no longer required for the performance or initiation of the contract.
16. legal or contractual regulations for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the person concerned to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision
We would like to 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). Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before providing personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact us. Anker Schroeder ASDO GmbH will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or by contract, or whether it is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be. 17.
17. existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automated decision-making or profiling.
