The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Adobe Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
Google will use this information on behalf of the website operator to evaluate website use, compile reports on website activity and provide the website operator with other services relating to website activity and internet use. The legitimate interest in data processing lies in the optimisation of this website, the analysis of the use of the website and the adaptation of the content.

To protect your personal data against unauthorised access and misuse, we take appropriate technical and organisational safety precautions such as issuing directives, providing training, IT and network security solutions, access monitoring and restrictions, pseudonymisation and controls.
In the course of our business relationship, you must provide us with the personal data required to enter into and conduct a business relationship, and to perform the related contractual obligations (as a rule, you do not have a statutory obligation to provide us with data). Without this data, we will generally not be in a position to conclude a contract with you (or with the body or person you represent) or to execute it.

You have the right to obtain information about the processing of your personal data.
A request for information is generally free of charge. A fee may be charged where the request entails a particularly extensive amount of work, the request for access to information is excessive or notorious, unless there is a legitimate interest.
In order to exercise these rights, you must provide unambiguous proof of identity (e.g. by means of a copy of an ID document). To assert your rights, you can contact us at the address indicated in section 2.
Right to rectification
You have the right to request the rectification of inaccurate or incomplete personal data about you.
Right to erasure
You have the right to request the erasure of your data under certain circumstances. Under this right, you may, for example, request the erasure of your data, provided this data is no longer required for the purposes for which it was collected. You can also request erasure if we process your data on the basis of your consent and you withdraw that consent.
Right of withdrawal
At all times, you have the right to withdraw your consent with effect for the future. Please send your notice of withdrawal to: [email protected].
Furthermore, every data subject has the right to assert their claims in a court of law or to file a complaint with the responsible data protection authority.
