  2. Processing of personal data on our website
    Personal data has to be processed to the extent described in section 2.1 to use this website.
    1. Data processing to enable website usage
      When you visit our website, we collect personal data to enable your usage of the site (usage data). This includes your IP address and data about the start and end points of your usage of the website and why you are using the website, and potentially also identification data (such as your login data if you log in to a secure area). This also includes the technical data transmitted from your browser such as its type/version, the referrer URL, monitor resolution, operating system and any device information (e.g. device type), etc. It is in our legitimate interest to process this data in order to provide our website and design it such that it meets user needs (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR). If you would like detailed information on the balancing of interests, please contact one of the people mentioned in section 1.
    2. Google Fonts
      Our website uses ‘Google Fonts’ from Google to present fonts uniformly. When you access a page, your browser loads the fonts required in your browser cache so that the texts and fonts can be displayed correctly. In this process, your IP address will be transmitted to Google’s servers, among other things. Standard fonts will be used if your browser does not support Google Fonts.
      Further information on Google Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s privacy policy
    3. Google Maps

      There is a plug-in on the contact page that shows a map from Google Maps. Google Maps is an online service that displays interactive maps, showing geographical information visually. This service shows you our location and makes it easier for you to visit us.

      To this end, a connection is established between your browser and Google’s servers – as is the case when you visit Google’s search engine page. If you are logged in on Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not want this data to be assigned to your profile on Google, you must log out before enabling the button. Google itself is responsible for its data processing. Google does not track activities on our website.

      If you do not agree to the future transmission of your data to Google when using Google Maps, it is also possible to fully disable Google Maps by turning off JavaScript on your browser. As a result, it will not be possible to use Google Maps and therefore to display maps on this website.

      Further information on using Google Maps can be found in Google Maps’ terms of use. Information on data protection at Google can be found in Google’s privacy policy.

    4. Contact Form

      We process your personal data when you use our contact form. If you contact us using the contact form provided, your information will be stored so that it can be accessed to process and respond to your query. Please note that there may be security gaps when data is transferred online. Data cannot be protected completely against third-party access.

      Depending on the nature of your query, the legal basis for this data processing will be the admissibility of processing in the scope of contract preparation, a contract or our legitimate interest in the provision of a contact form for general queries (Article 6(1)(b) or (f) GDPR).

    10. Transmission to recipients of personal data within the EEA
      We only forward the personal data described here insofar as this is necessary to perform our service or required by law in this context. For the purposes specified here, personal data is forwarded to the service providers that work for us and in particular help us to provide our services. These service providers are bound by the statutory obligation to comply with all data protection provisions, and we also impose additional contractual obligations relating to data protection on them. This includes in particular an obligation as a processor in accordance with Article 28 GDPR. We forward personal data to the following types of service providers in particular:
      - Accountants, financial institutions, tax and legal advisers,
      - IT service and infrastructure,
      - IT support and maintenance,
      - Data destruction and facility services,
      - In addition to the aforementioned types, other types of service providers may exist or be added at any time.
      Otherwise, we only transmit personal data to other recipients if we are legally permitted to do so or you have consented to this in advance. Any consent granted may be revoked at any time with effect for the future. We only pass on your data to government bodies in accordance with statutory obligations or as a result of an official order or court decision and only to the extent permitted under data protection law.
    11. Transmission to recipients of personal data in countries outside the EEA 

      We will transmit your data to recipients outside the EU insofar as required for our purposes. This is the case in particular if we have to pass on this data to recipients in such countries in the context of contract performance or on account of statutory requirements. Otherwise, we only transmit data to third countries if it is ensured that the recipient of the data has implemented an adequate level of data protection as defined by Article 45 GDPR or suitable guarantees within the meaning of Article 46(2) and (3) and no other legitimate interests preclude the data transmission. To ensure an adequate level of protection at the data recipient, we use the EU Commission’s standard contract clauses in particular to transmit personal data to third countries, unless an adequacy decision as defined by Article 45(1) GDPR has been made by the EU Commission (processor-to-processor; processor-to-processor transmission). We forward personal data to the following types of service providers in particular:

      - Web analysis,
      - Internal processing and data transmission,
      - In addition to the aforementioned types, other types of service providers may exist or be added at any time.
    12. Deletion
      We delete your personal data when it is no longer required for the aforementioned processing purposes, if there are no compelling, legitimate grounds on the part of AMF-Bruns that preclude deletion in the event of objection, or if there is no legal basis for the processing in the event of revocation. In certain cases, for example in the event of a statutory retention obligation, your personal data will initially be blocked and deleted at the end of the retention period.
      CCTV images are generally deleted after a period of no more than 72 hours. In justified individual cases, particularly for criminal investigations or to preserve evidence, recordings may be kept for longer and deleted once they have fulfilled this purpose.
      Position-related data is retained until a decision has been made and then deleted after no more than six months or, in the event of a successful application, transferred to personnel files.
    13. Your rights
      As the data subject, you have the following rights:
      - A right to confirmation as to whether your personal data has been processed by AMF-Bruns and, if this is the case, the right of access to this personal data (Article 15 GDPR), as well as
      - A right to rectification of your incorrect data (Article 16 GDPR),
      - A right to erasure (Article 17 GDPR) and
      - A right to restriction (blocking) of your data (Article 18 GDPR).

      If processing is based on Article 6(1)(e) or (f) GDPR, you may also object to the processing (Article 21 GDPR), although you must have a special reason, apart from in the case of direct advertising. You can ask for data to be transferred where you have provided it (Article 20 GDPR). The aforementioned regulations legally define whether and to which extent these rights exist in individual cases and the conditions under which they apply. If the processing is based on consent as defined by Article 6(1)(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a) GDPR, you may revoke this at any time with effect for the future (Article 7(3) GDPR). You also have the right to contact the competent data protection authority (Article 77 GDPR).
