Personal data within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, for example, your civil name, address, telephone number and date of birth.
The processing of personal data can be based on various legal bases. If we need your data to fulfill a contract with you or to respond to inquiries from you regarding a contract, the legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b GDPR. If we obtain your consent for certain data processing, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1. p. 1 lit. a GDPR. We carry out some data processing on the basis of our legitimate interest, always weighing your interests worthy of protection against our legitimate interests. The legal basis here is Art. 6 para. p. 1 lit. f GDPR. Insofar as processing is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which we are subject, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. c GDPR.
Collection of personal data when visiting our website
In the case of merely informational use of the website, i.e. if you do not transmit information to us in any other way, we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. If you wish to view our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to display our website to you and to ensure its stability and security: IP address, date and time of the request, time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), content of the request (specific page), access status/HTTP status code, amount of data transferred in each case, website from which the request comes, browser, operating system, and its interface, language and version of the browser software.
The last four digits of the IP address are replaced by a zero and are therefore no longer clearly traceable to the source.
We regularly do not know who is behind an IP address. We do not combine the data listed above with other data.
The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR. Since the collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage in log files are absolutely necessary for the operation of the website and to protect against misuse, our legitimate interest in data processing prevails at this point.
You can apply to our company electronically, e.g. via e-mail or web forms. Please note that unencrypted e-mails will not be transmitted with access protection.
Your details will be used for processing your application and deciding whether to establish an employment relationship. The legal basis is § 26 para. 1 in conjunction with. Abs. 8 S.2 BDSG. Furthermore, your personal data may be processed insofar as this should be necessary for the defense of asserted legal claims against us arising from the application process. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 p.1 lit. f GDPR. The stated purposes also constitute the legitimate interest in the processing.
We would be happy to forward your application within the group of companies should you be rejected. Forwarding will only take place if you consent to it. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR. Your consent is voluntary, you can revoke it at any time with effect for the future.
If an employment relationship is established between you and us, we may process the personal data already received from you for the purposes of the employment relationship in accordance with section 26 (1) of the BDSG if this is necessary for the implementation or termination of the employment relationship or for the exercise or fulfilment of the rights and obligations of the employee representation resulting from a law or a collective agreement, a works agreement or a service agreement (collective agreement).
Your application data will not be processed beyond the described use.
Your personal data will be deleted after completion of the application procedure after 6 months at the latest, provided that no other legitimate interests on our part oppose deletion or you have not given us consent for longer storage. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
Data collection and processing contact form
When you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form, the data you provide (your e-mail address, name and telephone number, if applicable) will be stored by us in order to answer your questions and process your requests. The legal basis in this respect is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR.
Insofar as we request information via our contact form that is not necessary for contacting you, we have always marked this as optional. We use this information to specify your request and to improve the processing of your request. Any communication of this information is expressly on a voluntary basis and with your consent, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR. Insofar as this involves information on communication channels (e.g. e-mail address, telephone number), you also consent to us contacting you via this communication channel, if necessary, in order to respond to your request. You can, of course, revoke this consent at any time for the future.
Your data that we have received in the course of contacting you will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected, your request has been fully processed and no further communication with you is necessary or desired by you.
As the controller, our company has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can always have security gaps. Absolute protection cannot be guaranteed; in any case, sending unencrypted e-mails is not secure. We therefore ask you not to send sensitive data by unencrypted e-mail, but to use either encrypted communication channels (e.g. our contact form) or the postal service.

So far as you have given your consent, Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC, is used on this website. The responsible entity for users in the EU/EEA and Switzerland is Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”).
Scope of processing
We use the User ID function. With the help of the User ID, we can assign a unique, permanent ID to one or more sessions (and the activities within these sessions) and analyse user behaviour across devices.
We have activated the anonymisation of IP addresses for Google Analytics. Due to IP anonymisation, your IP address will be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
During your website visit, your user behaviour is recorded in the form of “events”. Events can be:
– Page views
– First visit to the website
– Start of session
– Your “click path”, interaction with the website
– Scrolls (whenever a user scrolls to the bottom of the page (90%))
– Clicks on external links
– Internal search queries
– interaction with videos
– ads seen / clicked on
– your approximate location (region)
– your IP address (in shortened form)
– technical information about your browser and the end devices you use (e.g. language setting, screen resolution)
– your internet service provider
– the referrer URL (via which website/advertising medium you came to this website)
Purposes of the processing
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity. The reports provided by Google Analytics are used to analyse the performance of our website [OPTIONAL] and the success of our marketing campaigns.

It cannot be ruled out that US authorities may access the data stored by Google.
Third country transfer
Insofar as data is processed outside the EU/EEA and there is no level of data protection corresponding to the European standard, we have concluded EU standard contractual clauses with the service provider to establish an appropriate level of data protection. The parent company of Google Ireland, Google LLC, is based in California, USA. A transfer of data to the USA and access by US authorities to the data stored by Google cannot be ruled out. The USA is currently considered a third country from a data protection perspective. You do not have the same rights there as within the EU/EEA. You may not have any legal remedies against access by authorities.
The data sent by us and linked to cookies are automatically deleted after two years. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month.
The legal basis for this data processing is your consent in accordance with Art.6 Para.1 S.1 lit.a GDPR.

In order to use the Google Maps functions, information, including the IP address and the address entered as part of the route function, may be transmitted to the provider’s servers. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. When you visit our website that contains Google Maps, your browser, after you have consented to this via our cookie banner, establishes a direct connection with Google’s servers, whereby the map content is sent to your browser and integrated by it.

You can prevent this by logging out of your member account before visiting our website.

As a matter of principle, your data will not be transferred to third parties unless we are legally obliged to do so, or the transfer of data is necessary for the performance of the contractual relationship, or you have previously expressly consented to the transfer of your data.
External service providers and partner companies, such as online payment providers or the shipping company commissioned with the delivery, only receive your data insofar as this is necessary to process your order. In these cases, however, the scope of the transmitted data is limited to the necessary minimum. Insofar as our service providers come into contact with your personal data, we ensure within the framework of order processing pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR that they comply with the provisions of the data protection laws in the same manner. Please also note the respective data protection notices of the providers. The respective service provider is responsible for the content of third-party services, whereby we check the services for compliance with the legal requirements within the scope of reasonableness.
We attach importance to processing your data within the EU / EEA. However, it may happen that we use service providers who process data outside the EU / EEA. In these cases, we ensure that an adequate level of data protection comparable to the standards within the EU is established at the recipient prior to the transfer of your personal data. This can be achieved, for example, via EU standard contracts or Binding Corporate Rules or special agreements to whose regulations the company may be subject.
LTG AG has taken extensive technical and operational security precautions to protect your data from unauthorised access or misuse. Our security procedures are regularly reviewed and adapted to technological progress. Our employees are regularly trained and committed to confidentiality.
a. General information
Social media have become an integral part of the internet and modern communication. In order to stay in contact with our customers and interested parties, we have also set up our own fan page on Facebook. Facebook is a service of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.
We expressly draw your attention to the fact that Facebook stores the data (e.g. IP address, preferences and personal interests, behaviour on Facebook pages, any personal information stored on Facebook, etc.) of users and uses it for business purposes.
We have no influence on the processing and further use of this data, as Facebook alone determines the processing. To what extent, where and for how long the data is stored, to what extent the data is linked and evaluated and to whom the data is passed on is currently not comprehensible to us. We also have no insight or influence with regard to deletion periods, i.e. whether and to what extent deletion periods are adhered to.
Information from Facebook itself about what information is collected can be found in Facebook’s data protection guidelines, which can be viewed here: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
If you are a Facebook member and logged into your Facebook user account, Facebook can associate your visit to our site with your user account. If you would like to prevent Facebook from linking data about your visit to our fan page with your membership data stored on Facebook, you must
– log out of Facebook before each visit to our fan page
– delete the cookies stored on your device
– and close and restart your browser.
In this way, according to Facebook, all information by which you can be identified by Facebook will be deleted.
b. Scope of data collection and storage
You do not need to be a Facebook member to view the content on our Facebook fan page. However, data is collected, stored and used by Facebook every time you visit our page. ln the moment you call up our fan page, your browser establishes a connection with a Facebook server. In doing so, data may be transferred to countries outside the European Union. In any case, regardless of whether you are registered with Facebook or not, your IP address will be transmitted and cookies will be set. If you are a Facebook member and logged into your Facebook user account, Facebook can associate your visit to our site with your user account.
