Subject of Data Protection and Definition of Terms
According to Article 4 (1) of the GDPR, the subject of data protection is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, so‐called personal data. According to Article 4 (2) of the GDPR, processing means any operation related to personal data, such as collection, recording, organization, arrangement, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
Purpose and Legal Basis for the Processing of Personal Data
Peter Greven GmbH & Co. KG processes your personal data in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a-f GDPR exclusively on the basis of your prior consent given to us, for the performance of a contract or for the implementation of pre‐contractual measures taken at your request, for the fulfilment of a legal obligation and for the protection of a legitimate interest.
If the processing of your personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest,unless otherwise stated, is the performance of our business activities.
Only such data is stored that is required for the fulfilment and maintenance of the above‐mentioned purposes.
Data Deletion and Storage Period
The personal data will only be stored until the purpose of the storage no longer applies or you have revoked your consent. If you have provided us with personal data, we will only use it to respond to your inquiries, to process contracts concluded with us and for technical administration. Your personal data will only be passed on or transmitted to third parties if this is necessary for the purpose of processing the contract, if this is necessary for billing purposes, or if you have given your prior consent. In addition, storage may take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the responsible party is subject. If the purpose of storage no longer applies, if you revoke your consent or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation or another competent legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.
You have the right to revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. The deletion of stored personal data takes place if you revoke your consent to storage, if their knowledge is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of the purpose pursued with the storage or if their storage is inadmissible for other legal reasons.
If your data is no longer required for the aforementioned purposes, it will be deleted. If you wish to revoke your consent and have your data deleted, please send an e‐mail to email@example.com or to firstname.lastname@example.org. If data must be retained for legal reasons, it will be blocked. The data will then no longer be available for further use.

Where the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data may be processed, with the exception of their storage, only with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or a Member State.

Furthermore, when exercising your right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(2) of the GDPR, you have the right to have the personal data transferred directly from us to another controller, to the extent that this is technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.
The right to data portability does not apply to processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller (Article 20(3) GDPR).
(7) In accordance with Art. 7(3) GDPR, you have the right to revoke your consent to the processing of personal data at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.
Pursuant to Article 22(1) of the GDPR, you have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing ‐ including profiling ‐ which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you, where the decision is

The respective function descriptions, any recipients of the data, information on possible transfers to a third country and the storage period can be found in the following notes on the individual processing processes provided with third‐party cookies, plugins or other third‐party elements.
(1) Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics on our website, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google Analytics"). In this context, pseudonymized usage profiles are created and cookies are used. The information generated about your use of this website is usually transmitted 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 the use of the website and the Internet for the purposes of market research and demand‐oriented design of these Internet pages.
In no case will your IP address be merged with other data from Google. By activating IP anonymization on our website using "anonymizeIp", the IP address is shortened before transmission within the Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area (so‐called IP masking), so that an assignment is not possible. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The anonymized IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google.
Further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics can be found, for example, in the Google Analytics help https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en) and at https://marketingplatform.google.com/about/analytics/terms/gb/ or at https://policies.google.com/?hl=en&gl=de.
We have concluded the standard contractual clauses with Google in order to counteract the possible lack of or limited legal protection options and the lower level of data protection in the USA in contrast to the EU.
We also use Google Analytics to evaluate data from AdWords and the Double Click cookie for statistical purposes. If you do not wish this, you can deactivate it if necessary.
(2) Google Tag Manager
We use the Google Tag Manager of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google Tag Manager") on our website. This tool allows us to centrally install and manage code sections from Google Analytics. Google Tag Manger itself does not set any cookies and only collects certain aggregated data for tag triggering, which, according to its own information, does not contain IP addresses or other personal data.
For more information on data protection in connection with Google Tag Manager, please visit https://support.google.com/tagmanager/answer/9323295?hl=en.
We embed videos of the social network youtube.com on our website, which is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA ("YouTube"). YouTube LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043‐1351, USA. We use YouTube videos to improve the external presentation of our website and to inform visitors to our website about our company and products.
We use the two‐click method when using YouTube, so that videos on our website are initially displayed only in the form of an image with a "play" icon, which does not establish a connection to YouTube's servers until you click on the image and thereby call up the YouTube video. With another click, you can play the video. Only when you call up the YouTube video is a connection to the YouTube servers established. As part of this technical process, YouTube receives knowledge of which specific subpage of our website you are visiting.
If you use the videos, the corresponding information ‐ e.g. pressing the play button ‐ is transmitted from your browser to YouTube, linked to your user account and stored.
If you are logged in with your personal Google account while visiting our website, YouTube can associate your visit and the specific subpages of our website that you visit with your account. If you do not have a Google account, it is still possible that YouTube stores your IP address.
If you do not wish such processing, you must log out of your Google account and delete your cookies before visiting our website.
(4) Google Maps
This website uses the Google Maps service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google Maps") to illustrate our location.
By using Google Maps, information about the use of this website, including your IP address and the (start) address entered as part of the route planner function, may be transmitted to Google in the USA. When you call up a web page of our website that contains Google Maps, your browser establishes a direct connection with Google's servers, provided that you have consented to the use of Google Maps. Until you consent to the use of Google Maps, the service will not be loaded and no connection to Google's servers will be established.
The map content is transmitted by Google directly to your browser, which then integrates it into the website. Therefore, we have no influence on the scope of the data collected by Google in this way. According to our knowledge, this is at least the following data:
- Date and time of the visit to the website in question,
- Internet address or URL of the accessed web page,
- IP address, (start) address entered as part of route planning.
We have no influence on the further processing and use of the data by Google and therefore cannot assume any responsibility for this.
