Some of the webpages of the law firm Hannke Bittner & Partner mbB use so-called cookies. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. These are small text files that your Internet browser stores on your computer system. Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”, which are automatically deleted after the termination of your visit to our website. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit our site. You can set your browser to inform you about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, you can exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and enable the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser.

The website of the law firm Hannke Bittner & Partner mbB collects a series of general data and information every time the website is accessed by an affected person or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server until it is automatically deleted. It is possible to capture a) the Internet protocol address (IP address) of the requesting computer,
b) the date and time of access,
c) the name and URL of the retrieved file,
d) the website from which the access takes place (referrer URL),
e) the sub-webpages, which are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
f) browser used and possibly the operating system of your computer, and
g) the Internet service provider of the accessing system.

We collect the above data in order to ensure a smooth connection of the website, to ensure the comfortable use of our website, to evaluate the security and stability of the system and for other administrative purposes. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest follows from the data collection purposes listed above. This data cannot be traced back to specific persons. This data will not be combined with data from other sources. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of specific indications of illegal use.

The above-mentioned data protection officer processes and stores personal data of the data subject only for the period required to achieve the purpose of storage or, if so required by the European directives and regulations or any other legislator in laws or regulations, which the officer is subject to. If the storage purpose is omitted or if a storage period prescribed by the European directives and regulations or any other relevant legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

The following paragraph still needs to be adjusted:
We use Google Analytics and Google Web Fonts for the purpose of the needs-oriented design, the correct presentation of our pages and their ongoing optimization. Both services are provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter “Google”.

With Google Web Fonts, your browser loads the required Web fonts into your browser cache when you visit a page to display texts and fonts correctly. To do this, the browser you use must connect to Google’s servers. As a result, Google learns that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a consistent and attractive presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font will be used by your computer.

Google Analytics generates pseudonymized usage profiles and uses cookies when you visit our site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website, such as the Internet Protocol address (IP address) of the requesting computer, the date and time of access, the website from which access is made (referrer URL), browser used and, if necessary, the operating system of your computer and the Internet service provider of the accessing system is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and Internet usage for the purposes of market research and tailor-made website design. This information may also be transferred to third parties if required by law or if third parties are ordered to process this data. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with any other data provided by Google. The IP addresses are anonymized, so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking). You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting the browser software accordingly; however, we point out that in this case not all features of this website may be fully exploited. You may also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de). As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent Google Analytics tracking by clicking https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. An opt-out cookie will be set that will prevent the future collection of your data when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.

You have the right at any time and free of charge to request information about your personal data processed by us and, if necessary, the immediate correction of incorrect personal data or completion of your personal data stored with us. Furthermore, you have the right to demand the deletion or restriction of the processing of your personal data stored by us.
