3.3 Web-tracking

Services that optimize user-friendliness and measure the reach of the website are built into the website. Your access data (see Section 2) is recorded. Personal identification is generally not necessary for web-tracking, so that when your access data is recorded, the stored IP address is either not used or only used in truncated form, and pseudonymous user profiles are created. This data is not merged with other data and you have the possibility of revocation at any time. Personal user profiles are only created in exceptional cases and only if you have given your consent. The web-tracking services are usually offered by service providers who process the data in accordance with the controller’s instructions only and not for their own purposes, as so-called processors. This is ensured by means of contracts for processing. If the service providers process your data outside of the European Union or the European Economic Area (hereinafter referred to as “EU or EEA”), a so-called third country transfer takes place. This is permissible if you have given your consent, triple A code GmbH has given guarantees for a level of data protection that meets European standards, or the EU Commission has classified the relevant third country as a safe third country. The third country transfer of the relevant service is identified below. The individual web-tracking services of the website are described in more detail below.

The pseudonymous user profile is evaluated after transmission in order to optimize user-friendliness. The data is not merged with any other Google data. Through the use of Google Analytics, a third country transfer takes place. However, with its certification in accordance with the EU-US Privacy Shield, Google ensures that the third country transfer meets the European data protection standards.

6. Will my data be processed outside the EU or the EEA (third country transfer)?

If the service providers and/or third parties outside of the EU or the EEA which are specified under Section 5 process your data for the purposes of Section 3, this may result in your data being transferred to a country where no data protection standard commensurate with that of the EU or the EEA can be guaranteed. However, such a data protection standard can be ensured with an appropriate guarantee. Suitable guarantees are, for example, standard contractual clauses provided by the EU Commission. By way of exception, guarantees may be dispensed with if you give your consent or if the transfer of data to a third country is necessary to achieve your purpose with triple A code GmbH. Also, the EU Commission has recognised certain third countries as safe third countries, so that here too appropriate guarantees on the part of triple A code GmbH can be dispensed with. The following service providers process your data outside of the EU or the EEA: Web-tracking services are provided by service providers which have their computer centres in a third country or which can access the computer centres within the European Union or the EEA from a branch in a third country. With certification in line with the EU-US Privacy Shield, the services ensure that the third country transfer meets the European data protection standards. For the dispatch of newsletters, service providers are employed which have their computer centres in a third country or which can access the computer centres within the European Union or the EEA from a branch in a third country.

For the handling of customer enquiries, service providers are employed which have their computer centres in a third country or which can access the computer centres within the European Union or the EEA from a branch in a third country. With certification in line with the EU-US Privacy Shield, the services ensure that the third country transfer meets the European data protection standards.
