The plugins also collect personal data such as your IP address and send it to the servers of the provider, where it is stored. In addition, activated social plugins set a cookie with a unique identifier when the website is accessed. In this way, the providers can also create profiles about your usage behaviour. This happens even if you are not a member of the social network of the provider. If you are a member of the social network of the respective provider and you are logged into the social network during your visit to this website, your data and information may be linked to your profile on the social network. We have no influence on the exact extent of the data collected from you by the respective provider.

8) Utilisation of analysis services
Google Tag Manager
This website uses Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager is a solution with which the marketer can manage the website tags over an interface. Google Tag Manager itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-free domain and does not record any personal data. The tool ensures the activation of other tags, which for their part may record data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation was carried out on domain or cookie level, this continues to exist for all existing tracking tags which are implemented with Google Tag Manager.
Google Analytics web analysis service
This website uses Google Analytics. By order of the operator of this website, Google will evaluate your use of the website in order to compile reports about website activities and to provide further services connected with website use and Internet use, with respect to the website operator.
Since the co-ordination of the Hamburg representative for data protection and freedom of information with Google, on the basis of the decision of Duesseldorf District relating to the structuring of analysis processes for range measurement in case of Internet offers consistent with data protection, a use of Google Analytics consistent with data protection and complaint-free is possible under certain conditions. We respect these prerequisites of course. In particular, we point out that, on this website, Google Analytics was extended by the code “gat._anonymizeIp(); in order to guarantee an anonymised recording of IP addresses (so-called IP-Masking). Your IP address is shortened by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other treaty states of the Agreement on the European Economic Region. In exceptional cases only, the full IP address is transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address sent by Google Analytics within the framework of your browser is not combined with other data of Google. Please find further information on conditions of use and data protection at https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/.
Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files which are stored on your computer. The information about your use of this website generated by the cookie is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. You can prevent the storage of cookies through a corresponding adjustment of your browser software; however, we point out that possibly you will be not be able to use all functions of this website fully in this case. In addition, you can prevent the recording of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) by Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, where you download and install the Browser-Add-on. If you click here, an Opt-Out cookie is set, which prevents the future recording of your data during any visit to this website: Deactivate Google Analytics.
In addition, we use Google Conversion Tracking in association with Google Analytics. This enables us to record the characteristics of our website visitors. For example, it is indicated to us how many PDF’s on our website are downloaded or how often the contact form was filled out. Like,wise it is indicated to us how many clicks on advertisements from external sources (AdWords, LinkedIn, Xing, Bing) were made on our website.
9) On which legal basis is the data processed
a) Meeting contractual and pre-contractual obligations
Using our website, there exists the possibility to acquire products and/or services or initially any other information possibly to be provided with an individual offer regarding them. In case of use of these functions, you are requested to specify further information. The legal basis for this data processing is the meeting of contractual or pre-contractual obligations, in accordance with Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
b) Granting of consent
Different functions of this website are only usable if you have first given us your consent. Included in these functions are e.g. the ordering of our newsletters. At certain points you are correspondingly informed of the data processing, the purposes of data processing and your rights, in particular your right to withdraw your consent at any time. In case of consent being given, the legal grounds for the data processing is Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a) GDPR.
c) Legitimate interests
In addition, we process partly person-related data in our entitled interests in case of use of this website. Within the framework of the weighting of interests according to Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR, we have considered and weighted our interest in the appropriation and your interest in a processing of your personal data consistent with data protection. Since this data is sometimes required technically in order to enable the appropriation of our service and also to guarantee stability and security, in particular protection against misuse, we came to the conclusion – in case of the data protection, a guarantee based the state of the art of the technology- that this data can be processed, where your interest in a processing consistent with data protection is considered to an adequate extent.
10) Transfer of data
A forwarding of your personal data to third parties for any objectives other than those listed does not occur.
We pass on your personal data to third parties only if:
- you have given your explicit consent to this
- the transfer is required for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims and no basis exists for the assumption that you have a majority interest worthy of being protected in the non-transfer of your data,
- For the case where a legal obligation exists for the forwarding, as well as
- where this is legally admissible and required for the handling of contractual relationships with you.
In case of data communication outside of the European Union, the high European data-protection level basically does not exist. With any transfer, it can be that there currently exists no adequacy decision of the EU Commission, as specified by Art. 45 Sect. 1, 3 GDPR. This means that, to date, the EU Commission has not positively determined that the national data protection level corresponds to the data protection level of the European Union based on the GDPR, therefore we have obtained suitable guarantees as designated above.
Possible risks which cannot be completely excluded in connection with data communication are in particular:
- your personal data could possibly be processed over and above the actual purpose.
- in addition, there exists the possibility that you cannot exercise and enforce your data-protection rights sustainably, such as for example your right to information, to correction, deletion or data portability.
- there also possibly exists a high probability that an incorrect data processing can result and the protection of the personal data does not correspond quantitatively and qualitatively fully to the requirements of the GDPR.
For the continuous improvement of our website, for advertising purposes and in order to enable certain functions of this website to be offered to you, we are instructed with the employment of processors.
All processors are obliged here to process the data only for the service provision actually defined by us. All processors were selected by us carefully and sufficient technical and organisational measures were put in place in order to guarantee data protection.
11) Teaching data subject rights
Every person affected has the right of access according to Art. 15 GDPR, the right to rectification according to Art. 16 GDPR, the right to erasure according to Article 17 GDPR, the right to restriction of processing according to GDPR Art. 18, the right to object from Art. 21 GDPR, as well as the right to data portability from Art. 20 GDPR. In case of the right
to of access and the right to erasure, restrictions apply pursuant to § 34 and 35 BDSG.
Advice on the possibility to lodge a complaint
Furthermore, you have the right to complain to the responsible data-protection supervisory authority about the processing of your personal data by us.
Advice on the withdrawal with consent
You can withdraw any consent to the processing of personal data at any time with respect to us. This also applies for the revocation of consent declarations which have been made before the validity of the basic data protection regulation (before 25th May 2018) with respect to us. Please note that the withdrawal effects the future. Any processing implemented prior to the withdrawal is not affected by this.
Right in case of a data processing for the purpose of direct advertising
In accordance with Art. 21 Sect. 2 GDPR, you have the right to make an objection at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you. In case of your objection to processing for purposes of direct advertising, we will not process your personal data for these objectives any longer. Please note that the objection comes into effect for the future only. Any processing implemented prior to the objection is not affected by this.
Note on right to objection in case of weighting of interests
As far as we base the processing of your personal data on a weighting of interests, you can make an objection to the processing. In case of the exercise of such an objection, we request that you explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as described. In case of your reasonable objection, we check the state of affairs and will either cease or adapt the data processing, or explain to you our compelling reasons worth being protected.

Our websites can include links to websites of other providers. We refer to the fact that this data protection declaration applies for the websites of www.frankfurt-school.de solely.
