III.  Provision of the website and creation of log files

1.  What personal data do we process?
Each time you access our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer.

The following data will be collected:

– Information about the browser type
– The user’s operating system
– The Internet service provider of the user
– The IP address of the user
– Date and time of access
– Websites from which the user’s system accesses our website
– Websites accessed by the user’s system through our website

The data is also stored in the log files of our system. This does not affect the user’s IP address or other data that enables the data to be assigned to a user. These data are not stored together with other personal data of the user.

2.  On what legal basis do we process your personal data?
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

3.  Why do we use your personal data?
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.

The data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. The data is also used to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

These purposes also include our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

4.  How long is your personal data stored or when is it deleted?
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data to provide the website, this is the case when the session in question has ended.

If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. A storage going beyond this is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

5.  Can I disagree to the processing of my personal data?
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility for the user to object.


IV.  Use of cookies

The processing of the personal data from the input mask serves us exclusively for the processing of the establishment of contact. If you contact us by e-mail, this is also the necessary legitimate interest in the processing of the data.

The other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

4.  How long is your personal data stored or when is it deleted?
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected.

The user has the possibility to revoke his consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by e-mail, he can object to the storage of his personal data at any time without giving reasons in accordance with Art. 21 DS-GVO. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued.

All personal data stored in the course of contacting us will be deleted in this case.


VI.  Use of social media plug-ins

We use the so-called two-click solution. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the plug-ins. You can recognize the provider of the plug-in by the mark on the box above his initial letter or the logo. We offer you the possibility to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only if you click on the marked field and thereby activate it will the plug-in provider receive the information that you have called up the corresponding website of our online service.

1.  Privacy policy on the use and enjoyment of Facebook
On our page are plugins of the social network Facebook, provider Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA, integrated. You can recognize the Facebook plugins by the Facebook logo or the “Like” button on our page. You can find an overview of the Facebook plugins here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. When you visit our pages, the plugin establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the Facebook “Like” button while logged into your Facebook account, you can link the content of our pages to your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to associate visiting our pages with your user account. If you do not want Facebook to associate visiting our pages with your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook user account.

This data protection information applies to data processing by:

TauchService Naue GmbH
Lutz Naue
Hoher Weg 7
D-99425 Weimar


The person responsible uses the technical platform and services of Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland for the information service offered here. You use the offered functions (e.g. comment, share, rate) on your own responsibility.

What information is collected?
When you visit our Facebook page, Facebook collects various information automatically. We do not know what information Facebook ultimately collects. This information is collected regardless of whether you have a Facebook account or are logged in to your existing Facebook account at the time of your visit. You can view the information collected by Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/update?ref=old_policy: “What types of information do we collect?

Assignment of the visit of our Facebook page to your Facebook account
When you access a Facebook page, the IP address assigned to your end device is transmitted to Facebook. According to Facebook, this IP address is anonymized (for “German” IP addresses) and deleted after 90 days. In addition, Facebook stores information about its users’ end devices (e.g. as part of the “registration notification” function); Facebook may thus be able to assign IP addresses to individual users. If you are currently logged on to Facebook as a user, a cookie with your Facebook identification is stored on your terminal. This enables Facebook to track that you have visited this page and how you have used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Facebook buttons integrated into web pages enable Facebook to record your visits to these web pages and assign them to your Facebook profile. This data can be used to tailor content or advertising to your individual needs. You can find out more at: https://www.facebook.com/policies/cookies/
If you want to avoid this, you should log out of Facebook or deactivate the function “stay logged in”, delete the cookies on your device and close and restart your browser. In this way, Facebook information that directly associates your account with your visit to our site will be deleted. You can then use our Facebook page without revealing your Facebook identification. When you access the interactive features of the page (like, comment, share, news, etc.), a Facebook login screen appears. Once you have logged in, Facebook will recognize you again as a specific user.

Legal basis for data processing
Facebook states the legal basis for the data processing under https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/update?ref=old_policy “What is our legal basis for the processing of data?

How is the information collected still used?
Facebook processes the above data for the purposes described at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/update?ref=old_policy (“How do we use this information?”) and may transfer it to countries outside the European Union.

Facebook Insights
Some of the information collected by Facebook is used to provide us, as the operator of the Facebook Page, with statistical information about the use of the Facebook Page (“Facebook Insights”). Facebook provides more information about this at the following link: http://de-de.facebook.com/help/pages/insights
We only receive this statistical information anonymously and therefore assume that the use of this data is not a data processing operation that falls within the scope of the DSGVO. Nevertheless, the European Court of Justice ruled in its ruling of June 5, 2018 (ECJ C-210/16) that the operator of a Facebook page is jointly responsible for the data collected by Facebook as part of the Facebook Insights service. As we cannot currently rule out joint responsibility for the collection of data, we would like to fulfill our information obligations below as far as technically possible. We use Facebook Insights on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. By using this service, we want to ensure that our Facebook page is designed to meet your needs and is continually optimised. On the other hand, we use the service to statistically evaluate the use of our Facebook page for the purpose of optimising our services for you. These interests are to be regarded as legitimate within the meaning of the aforementioned provision.

What rights do you have?
You have the right to information, correction, transferability or deletion of your data. The exact rights can be found at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/update?ref=old_policy “How can you exercise your rights granted under DSGVO? If you assert rights against us regarding data collection in connection with Facebook Insights, we will forward your request to Facebook, as we ultimately do not have the technical possibilities and powers to fully comply with your request.

2.  Privacy Policy on the Use and Usage of YouTube
Our website uses plugins from the YouTube page operated by Google. The site is operated by YouTube,LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When using the YouTube plugin, a connection is established to YouTube’s servers. The YouTube server will be informed which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you can allow YouTube to assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

We have no influence on the data collected and data processing procedures, nor are we aware of the full scope of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We also do not have any information on the deletion of the collected data by the plug-in provider.

Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the following data protection declarations of these providers. There you will also find further information on your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy.

3.  Privacy policy on the use and application of Google+
The data controller has integrated the Google+ button as a component on this website. Google+ is a so-called social network. A social network is a social meeting point operated on the Internet, an online community that usually enables users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or enables the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Google+ enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friendship requests.

Google+ is operated by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google+ button has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data subject’s information technology system is automatically prompted by the respective Google+ button to download a display of the corresponding Google+ button from Google. As part of this technical process, Google obtains information as to which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned. More detailed information on Google+ can be found at https://developers.google.com/+/.

If the person concerned is logged into Google+ at the same time, Google recognizes which specific page of our website the person concerned is visiting each time the person concerned accesses our website and for the entire duration of that person’s visit to our website. This information is collected by the Google+ button and assigned by Google to the respective Google+ account of the person concerned.

If the person concerned activates one of the Google+ buttons integrated on our website and thus makes a Google+1 recommendation, Google assigns this information to the personal Google+ user account of the person concerned and saves this personal data. Google stores the data subject’s Google+1 recommendation and makes it publicly available in accordance with the data subject’s accepted terms and conditions. A Google+1 recommendation made by the data subject on this website will subsequently be stored and processed together with other personal data, such as the name of the Google+1 account used by the data subject and the photo stored in this account, in other Google services, such as the search engine results of the Google search engine, the Google account of the data subject or elsewhere, for example on websites or in connection with advertisements. Google is also able to link a visit to this website with other personal data stored by Google. Google also records this personal information for the purpose of improving or optimising Google’s various services.

Google receives information from the Google+ button that the data subject has visited our website whenever he or she is simultaneously logged in to Google+ when you visit our website; this happens whether or not the data subject clicks the Google+ button.

If the data subject does not want his or her personal data to be transferred to Google, he or she may prevent such transfer by logging out of his or her Google+ account before visiting our website.

Further information and the valid data protection regulations of Google can be called up under https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ Further information from Google about the Google+1 button can be found at https://developers.google.com/+/web/buttons-policy.
