3. General information on the collection and utilization of data when using our services
3.1. What comprises personal data?
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (e.g. your name, address or telephone number).
3.2. What information do we store and for which purposes?
When you access any part of our website (with the exception of the contact form – see below), data which could be used to identify you (e.g. your IP address) and other information such as the date, time and the pages accessed during the session are stored only in pseudonymized form. We do not perform any data analysis except for statistical purposes. After the statistical analysis, the pseudonymized data are deleted.
You have a right to object to the creation of these utilization profiles. If you wish to exercise this right, please notify us in writing (Section 15 Par. 3 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG)). When you submit the contact form, the current IP address of the sender is saved for security reasons.
These data are stored on servers of FMG and analyzed statistically for marketing and optimization purposes – so that you will find even better content and services in the future. It is not possible to identify individual persons with the data.
Please note: You will be required, however, to register with your data to use certain services (e.g. parking at Munich Airport). For further information, see the separate data protection statement for the service in question.

4. Which internet technologies are used?
4.1. Collection of general information
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically logged. This information (server log files) contain such data as the type of web browser, the operating system, the domain name of your internet service provider, etc. It is not possible to use any of this information to identify you. These data are needed for technical reasons for correct delivery of the website contents requested by you and are necessary when using the internet. We perform statistical analysis on anonymous information of this kind in order to optimize our website and the underlying technology.
4.2. Registration on our website
When registering to use our personalized services, some personal data are collected such as your name, address, and contact and communication data such as your telephone number and email address. If you are registered with us, you can access content and services that we offer to registered users only. Registered users can also change or delete the data provided at registration as required at any time. Of course we will also provide you with information at any time on your personal data stored by us. We will be happy to correct or delete these data on request unless statutory archiving obligations stipulate otherwise. To contact us in this regard, please use the contact information provided at the end of this Privacy Statement.
4.3. Delivery of billable services
In order to provide billable services, we request additional data, e.g. payment details. To protect the security of the data transfer, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via the HTTPS protocol.
4.4. Comment function
When users comment on the blog, the time of the comment and the user name previously selected by the website visitor are stored along with the comment itself. This is for our protection, as we can be held legally responsible for illegal contents on our website even if they are created by users.
The data provided by you when registering to subscribe to our newsletter are used exclusively for that purpose. Subscribers may also be informed by email of circumstances relevant to the service or registration (e.g. changes in the newsletter service or technical issues).
For your registration to take effect, we need a valid email address. To check that the registration is in fact coming from the owner of the email address, we employ the double opt-in process. For that purpose, we log the newsletter order, the dispatch of the confirmation email and the receipt of the requested reply. No other data are collected. These data are used exclusively for sending the newsletter and are not forwarded to third parties.
You can revoke your consent to store your personal data and subscribe to the newsletter at any time. Every newsletter contains a link for that purpose. In addition, you can unsubscribe directly on this website at any time and inform us of your request using the contact options provided at the end of this document.
4.6. Use of Google Analytics
In addition to or instead of the browser add-on, you can block tracking by Google Analytics on our web pages by clicking this link. An opt-out cookie will then be installed on your device. This will block the collection of data by Google Analytics for this website and this browser in the future and for as long as the cookie is installed in your browser.
4.6.1. Google Analytics Demographics and Interests Reporting
In addition to the standard version of Google Analytics, we also use Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting. For this purpose, Google uses a DoubleClick cookie if one is stored on your computer. Through this service, we receive reports from Google with information, for example, on which visitor groups (interests, age groups) visit our website and what interests them there. We use this information to better serve our target group. You are not personally identified in these reports.
When using our website, you consent to this use of data in the context of Google Analytics (Demographics and Interests Reporting).
You can prevent your visit from being included in our reports by opting out of Google Analytics tracking as described above.
Information on how Google uses data and how you can prevent or monitor this data use is also available in the "How Google uses data when you use our partners" sites or apps.
4.7. Use of Google DoubleClick for Publishers
This website uses DoubleClick for Publishers ("Doubleclick"), a service of Google. Doubleclick is a platform for the placement, management and optimization of ads on websites. With Doubleclick we can reach and present personalized ads to website visitors who have shown interest in certain content areas. This is made possible through an analysis of their use of our website, including other site pages, and on other websites within the Google display network (Google itself, Google Ads, and other websites). For this purpose, Google uses DoubleClick cookies, which are stored on your computer. Most cookies contain a cookie ID. This is a sequence of characters that match websites and servers to the browser where the cookie is stored. It enables the websites and servers to distinguish the browser from browsers with other cookies and identify every browser with a unique cookie ID. This ID is used exclusively for the unique identification of a web browser on a certain computer and not to identify a person. DoubleClick cookies do not contain or store any personal data of users.
You can deactivate personalized Google ads in your browser by clicking the "Turn off" link in the deactivation settings under https://www.google.de/settings/ads or, if you use the Google Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer browser, by deactivating the DoubleClick cookie by installing the browser add-on available at https://www.google.de/settings/ads.
4.8. Use of Google Remarketing
This website uses the remarketing function of Google Inc. This function serves to present interest-based adds to website users within the Google display network. A cookie is stored in the website user's browser so that the user can be recognized when accessing other websites in the Google display network. The user can be shown ads on these sites based on the contents they have viewed on websites that use the Google Remarketing function.
4.9. Use of etracker technologies
The data generated as a result are processed and saved solely in Germany by etracker on our behalf and are thus subject to strict German and European data privacy laws and standards. Etracker has been independently audited and certified in this regard and awarded the data privacy quality seal ePrivacyseal.
Data are processed in accordance with the legal provisions of Art. 6 Par. 1 (f) (legitimate interests) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR). Our legitimate interests are the optimization of our online services and our website. The privacy of our users is very important to us. Consequently, the IP address is anonymized by etracker at the earliest possible stage and the login and device IDs are converted to a unique key. This cannot be associated with an individual person, however. The data are not used by etracker for any other purposes, merged with other data or forwarded to third parties.
You can object to the data processing described above at any time to the extent that such processing involves personally identifiable data. An objection will not result in any disadvantages for you.
Further privacy information on etracker is available here.
