Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service offered by Google Inc. (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA). Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files placed on users’ computer, to help us analyse how people use our website. We generally transmit the information that the cookie generates as to how you use this website to a Google server in the USA and store it there. We use the suffix “gat._anonymizelp” for web analysis using Google Analytics. With this suffix Google shortens and anonymises the IP address when our website is accessed from within a member state of the European Union or from within another party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will we transmit full IP addresses to a Google server in the USA and shorten them there. The IP address will not be merged with other Google data in this process. Google will evaluate this information on behalf of the website operator in order to compile reports on website activity and to provide other related services to the website operator. These cookies will be erased automatically after a period of 14 months.

This data processing for Google Analytics complies with Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR.

You can refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, if you do this, you may not be able to use all of this website’s functions fully. You can also prevent Google’s collection of data (including your IP address) generated by the cookie about your use of the website, and Google’s processing of such data, by downloading and installing a browser plug-in which is available at the following link

Google AdWords

We use Google Inc.’s remarketing and AdWords functions on our websites. This function is based on a cookie and we use it to present interest-based advertisements to visitors to our website within the framework of Google’s advertising network. These pages can then present you with advertisements relating to content that you have previously accessed on websites that use Google’s remarketing function. Google states that it does not collect any personal data during this process. Google uses the Google Signals function to implement cross-device tracking, i.e. cross-device advertising. You can deactivate these Google functions by defining the appropriate settings at if you do not want them. You can also define your privacy settings for all Google services at

Google AdWords will place a cookie on your computer if you access our website via a Google advertisement. This cookie expires after 30 days and we cannot use any information stored on it to draw any conclusions about you.

We use a conversion cookie to obtain statistical information regarding the conversion rate. This tells us how many users have come to our website from a Google ad and have placed an order within 30 days.

This data processing for Google AdWords complies with Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR.

You can object to Google’s interest-based advertising by clicking on in any of the internet browsers you use and defining the appropriate settings there.

Google Maps

Our website uses Google Maps from Google Inc. By this website, you consent to the collection, processing, and use of data collected automatically by Google Inc. and its representatives and by third parties. The terms of use for Google Maps are available under “Google Maps/Google Earth Additional Terms of Service” at

Use of YouTube videos

Alterric uses videos provided by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, which is represented by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. We have embedded them using the extended data protection mode and a two-click solution. Consequently, YouTube no longer stores any information about visitors unless they actually watch a video. If you click on a video, your IP address will be transmitted to YouTube and it will learn that you have watched the video. If you log in to YouTube, this information will also be assigned to your user account (which you can prevent by logging out of YouTube before viewing the video). We do not know, and cannot influence, how YouTube then collects and uses your data. You can learn more about YouTube’s privacy policy at

Your rights

If Alterric processes your personal data, we will inform you on request about the categories of data concerned, the purposes for which we use the data, any transferees or categories of transferees of the data, and how long we plan to keep it.

You can require us to rectify any inaccurate data and to complete any incomplete data.

If we rely on your consent to process your data, you can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. If our processing relies on a legitimate interest, you can object to data processing on grounds relating to your own particular situation (Article 21 GDPR).

You can in some circumstances require us to erase your data. This includes when we no longer need to process your data, when you have revoked a consent that you have previously given, or when you have objected to our processing your data on grounds relating to your own particular situation.

You can in some circumstances require us to restrict our processing of your data if we cannot erase it or we disagree about our obligation to erase it.

You also have a right to data portability, which means that we will provide your data to you in a machine-readable format upon request.

You can contact the competent supervisory authority if you wish to make a complaint. The German Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (Bundesbeauftragter für den Datenschutz und die Informationsfreiheit) is responsible for reviewing complaints regarding telecommunications services. The State Commissioner for Data Protection of Lower Saxony is responsible for reviewing any other complaints.

Persons to whom Alterric transfers data

Alterric will transfer your data to processors in compliance with Article 28 GDPR. Such processors will only process your data in accordance with the legal framework and Alterric’s instructions. We are responsible for how such processors process your data. Alterric may transfer your data to cooperation partners for providing services. We may do this on the basis of legal permissibility or, if applicable, your consent. We may also be obliged to transfer your data to official bodies in certain cases.

Transfers to third countries

We transfer some personal data to third countries outside the European Union, e.g. through Google, Facebook, and others in the USA. The European Court of Justice has assessed the USA as a country that, according to EU standards, has an insufficient level of data protection. The risks include that US authorities may process your data for control and monitoring purposes, and that you may not have any legal remedy. You can actively consent to this transfer using our cookie management system when you access our website, and you can revoke your consent at any time.

This data processing complies with sentence 1 (a) of Article 49(1) GDPR.

Automated individual decision-making (including profiling)

We do not use any purely automated individual decision-making procedures pursuant to Article 22 GDPR. If we decide to use such a procedure in the future, we will inform you separately if the law requires.

Security measures

Alterric uses extensive technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data against misuse, accidental or intentional manipulation, or against access by any unauthorised persons. We continually improve our security procedures in line with technological developments.
