This general data and information is stored in the server's log files. What can be recorded are the (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites which are accessible via an accessing system on our website is controlled, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that serves to protect against threats in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, Weberei Pahl GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject.

5. Subscription to our newsletter
On the Weberei Pahl GmbH website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company's newsletter. Which personal data is transmitted to the person responsible for processing when ordering the newsletter is determined by the input mask used for this purpose.
Weberei Pahl GmbH regularly informs its customers and business partners about company offers by means of a newsletter. In principle, our company's newsletter can only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid email address and (2) the data subject registers to receive the newsletter. For legal reasons, a confirmation email will be sent using the double opt-in procedure to the email address entered by a data subject for the first time to receive the newsletter. This confirmation email is used to check whether the owner of the email address as the data subject has authorized receipt of the newsletter.
When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the computer system used by the data subject at the time of registration as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later point in time and therefore serves to provide legal protection for the person responsible for processing.
The personal data collected when registering for the newsletter is used exclusively to send our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by email if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a related registration, as could be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter offer or a change in technical circumstances. The personal data collected as part of the newsletter service will not be passed on to third parties. The data subject can cancel the subscription to our newsletter at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data that the data subject has given us for sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time.

It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the controller or to communicate this to the controller in another way.

The Weberei Pahl GmbH newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A web beacon is a miniature graphic that is embedded in emails sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns to be carried out. Using the embedded tracking pixel, Weberei Pahl GmbH can determine whether and when an email was opened by a data subject and which links in the email were accessed by the data subject. Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the person responsible for processing in order to optimize the newsletter dispatch and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Affected persons are entitled at any time to revoke the relevant separate declaration of consent issued via the double opt-in procedure. After revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the person responsible for processing. Weberei Pahl GmbH automatically interprets unsubscribing from receiving the newsletter as a revocation.

16. Data protection regulations on the application and use of YouTube

The person responsible for processing has integrated components from YouTube on this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips free of charge and allows other users to view, rate and comment on them free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete films and television programs, as well as music videos, trailers or videos made by users can be accessed via the Internet portal. YouTube's operating company is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. Each time you access one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data subject's information technology system is automatically activated by the respective YouTube component prompted to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Further information about YouTube can be found at www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/ .

17. Legal basis for processing

Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as to fulfill tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance details or other vital information would then have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the above-mentioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he was of the opinion that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

18. Legitimate interests in processing pursued by the controller or a third party
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

19. Duration for which the personal data will be stored

The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline has expired, the relevant data will be routinely deleted unless it is no longer required to fulfill the contract or initiate a contract.

20. Legal or contractual requirements for the provision of personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision
We would like to clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). In order to conclude a contract, it may sometimes be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company enters into a contract with them. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be concluded. Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what consequences the non-provision of the personal data would have.
