Data protection is of particular significance to FAS GmbH. Our particular efforts to comply with the requirements of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the German data protection law in its latest version are aligned with our aim of looking after your privacy and personal sphere.
For modern businesses like FAS GmbH, the use of electronic data processing has become indispensable. We assure you that we implement utmost care in ensuring our compliance with legal requirements.
Using the webpages of FAS GmbH (Adiungo) in its basic form is possible without divulging any personal data. However, if an affected person wishes to use specialised business services via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. Should processing of personal data be required and such processing does not have legal footing, we will generally request consent of said person.
In no case will we sell or lease your personal information to third parties for marketing purposes or other uses. If you do not agree with the terms of the data protection regulation, please do not transmit personal data to us.
1. General / Definitions
This data protection declaration is based on terms in the GDPO and should be easy to read and understand for any and all persons. Hence, we would like to define various terms in advance:
a) Personal data
Personal data is all information referring to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereafter referred to as “affected person”). A natural person is considered identifiable if they can be identified directly or indirectly, particularly by allocating them to an identifier like a name, a numerical code, location data, online identification or to one or several special characteristics which express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person.
b) Affected person / party
An affected person is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by a person tasked with processing.
Processing is every task, carried out with or without aid of automated procedures, or every such row of tasks connected to personal data, such as collecting, recording, organising, sorting, saving, adapting or changing, reading out, searching for, using, disclosing through transmission, processing or another type of provision, comparing or connecting, restricting, deleting or destroying.
d) Restrictions of processing
Restriction of processing means marking saved personal data with the aim of restricting its processing in future.
Profiling is every type of automated processing of personal data, in which such personal data is used to assess particular personal aspects related to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects regarding work performance, economic position, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or change of location of this natural person.
Pseudonymisation is processing of personal data in such a way that personal data can no longer be allocated to a specific person without additional information, as long as such additional information is stored separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure said personal data cannot be allocated to an identified or identifiable natural person.
g) Responsible party
A responsible party is the natural or legal person, authority, institution or other organisation which solely or jointly with others makes decisions regarding the purposes and means of processing personal data. If the purposes and means of such processing are provided for by Union law or the laws of the member states, the responsible party and/or the specific criteria for its designation can be stipulated as per Union law and the laws of the member states.
h) Processor / data processor
A processor / data processor is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other organisation, which processes the personal data on behalf of the responsible party.
A recipient is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other organisation to which personal data is divulged, irrespective of whether this is a third party or not. Authorities, which may receive personal data within the framework of a specific evaluation contract as per Union law or the laws of the member states, are not considered recipients.
j) Third party
A third party is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other organisation apart from the affected person, responsible party, processor and the persons under the direct responsibility of the responsible party or the processor, who are authorised to process personal data.
Consent is every declaration of will or other clear confirmatory action given by the affected person for a specific case in an informed manner and with which the affected person insinuates their consent to the processing of personal data pertaining to them.

This is also valid for profiling based on these regulations.
We will no longer process personal data in case of such an objection, unless we can illustrate compelling and legitimate reasons for processing, which take precedence over the interests, rights and freedoms of the affected person, or if processing serves the assertion, execution or defence of legal claims.
Should we process personal data for direct advertising, the affected party has the right to enter an objection against processing of personal data for purposes of such advertisement.

b) processing is carried out using an automated process.
When exercising your right to data portability as per art 20 para 1 GDPO the affected party has the right to request personal data be transmitted by one responsible party directly to another responsible party, as long as this is technically feasible and the rights and freedoms of other persons are not affected.
Should an affected person wish to make use of this right to data portability, they are entitled to contact an employee of the party responsible for processing at any time.
- Automated decision in individual cases including profiling
The GDPR has granted every person affected by processing of personal data the right no to be subject to a decision exclusively based on automated processing - including profiling - which has legal effect on them or substantially affects them in a similar manner, as long as the decision is
(1) not necessary for completion or fulfilment of a contract between the affected party and the responsible party, or
(2) is permissible based on legislation of the Union or the member states which the responsible party is subject to and this legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as justified interests of the affected person, or
(3) made with express consent from the affected party.
If the decision is required for completion or fulfilment of a contract between the affected person and the responsible person or it is made with express consent from the affected person, we will take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as justified interests of the affected person.

6. Data protection for applicants
The party responsible for processing collects and processes personal data of applicants in order to carry out the application procedure. Processing can also occur via electronic means. This is particularly the case when applicants transmit related application materials via electronic means, for example e-mail or via contact forms on internet pages, to the party responsible for processing. If the party responsible for processing concludes a labour contract with an applicant, the transmitted data is saved for purposes of executing the labour contract, in accordance with legal requirements. If the party responsible for processing does no conclude a labour contract with the applicant, application materials are automatically deleted as long as such deletion does not affect any other justified interests of the party responsible for processing. Other justified interests in this sense are, for example, the burden of proof in a trial as per the General Equal Treatment Law (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz, AGG).
Processing applicant data is carried out to fulfil our (pre-)contractual obligations within the framework of the application procedure as per art 6 para 1 lit b GDPR art 6 para 1 lit f GDPR as long as data processing becomes necessary for us, e.g. within the framework of legal proceedings (in Germany § 26 of the Federal Data Protection Act, BDSG also applies).
7. Objection or withdrawal against the processing of your data
(1) Should you have consented to the processing of your data, you can withdraw such consent at any time via any communication channel. Such withdrawal will influence the legality of processing your personal data after you have informed us accordingly.
(2) As far as we base the processing of your personal data on a balancing of interests, you are entitled to enter an objection. This is the case if processing is not particularly required to fulfil a contract with you, as per our below description of functions. When entering an objection please provide the reasons why your personal data should not be processed by us. In case of a justified objection we will assess the situation and will either halt data processing and/or adjust it or illustrate to you our compelling legitimate grounds based on which we will continue processing.
(3) Of course you are entitled to object to processing of your personal data for purposes of advertising and data analysis. You can contact us regarding your objection via the address stated in number 2 (2).
8. Legal and contractual requirements for provision of personal data / requirement for conclusion of contract / consequences of non-provision / deletion
(1) We would like to inform you that provision of personal data is legally required in part. However, it can also be possible, that an affected person must provide us with personal data so that a contract can be executed. Non-provision would mean the contract cannot be concluded. Our employees are happy to assist with questions regarding individual cases.
(2) Data processed by us is deleted or restricted in its processing according to art 17 and 18 GDPR. Provided it is not explicitly stated in the framework of this data protection declaration, data we have saved is deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for its intended purpose and no statutory storage obligations contradict it. Should data not be deleted as it is required for other and lawful purposes, its processing is restricted, i.e. data is locked and not processed for other purposes. This is true for data which has to be saved e.g. for trade and taxation reasons.
As per legal requirements, data is stored specifically for 10 years according to §§ 147 para 1 of the German tax code (AO), 257 para 1 no 1 and 4, para 4 German commercial code, HGB (books, records, status reports, accounting vouchers, trading books, documentation relating to taxation etc.) and 6 years according to § 257 para 1 no 2 and 3, para 4 HGB (commercial letters).

For registration we utilise a so-called double-opt-in procedure, i.e. your registration is only complete once you confirm your registration by clicking on the link sent to you in a confirmation e-mail for this purpose, before registration. Should you not provide such confirmation within 24 hours your registration will automatically be deleted from our database. Provision of the above details is required, any further information can be provided voluntarily during use of our portal.

This data is stored as it is the only way to prevent abuse of our services and if needed this data can enable us to get to the bottom of a committed crime. As such storage of this data is required to safeguard processing by the responsible party.

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files which are saved to your computer and enable us to analyse your use of the website. The information regarding your use of this website, which is generated by cookies, is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Should IP anonymisation be activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand, within the member states of the European Union or other contracting states to the treaty regarding the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is a full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator, Google uses such information to evaluate your use of the website, to collate reports regarding website activities and to provide further services related to website use and internet use for the website operator.
(2) The IP address transmitted by your browser in the framework of Google Analytics, is amalgamated with other data from Google.

(4) This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This means the IP address is further processed in a shortened format and can no longer be connected to a particular person. Should a connection to a particular person be possible via data collected about you, this will immediately be precluded, including immediate deletion of personal data. The data we send which is connected via cookies, logins (e.g. user IDs) or advertising IDs is automatically deleted after 14 months. Deletion of data which has reached its storage term is carried out automatically once a month.

3. Oveleon Contao Cookiebar
(1) Our website uses the cookie consent technology Oveleon Contao Cookiebar to obtain your consent to store certain cookies in your browser and to document this consent in a data protection compliant manner. The provider of this technology is Oveleon GbR, Mr. Fabian Ekert, Auestraße 1, 51379 Leverkusen.
(2) When you enter our website, a cookie is stored in your browser, in which the consents you have given or the revocation of these consents are stored.
(3) The collected data will be stored until you request us to delete it or until you delete the corresponding cookie yourself or until the purpose for storing the data no longer applies. Mandatory legal retention periods remain unaffected. Details on data processing by Oveleon GbR can be found at https://www.oveleon.de/datenschutz.html.
(1) With your consent, you can subscribe to our newsletter, with which we inform you about our current interesting offers. The advertised goods and services are named in the declaration of consent.
(2) For the registration to our newsletter we use the so-called double-opt-in procedure. This means that after your registration, we will send you an e-mail to the e-mail address you provided, in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration within 24 hours, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. In addition, we store in each case your IP addresses used, the computer system used and the times of registration and confirmation. The purpose of this procedure is to be able to prove your registration and, if necessary, to clarify any possible misuse of your personal data.
(3) The personal data collected during registration for the newsletter is used exclusively for sending our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by e-mail 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 changes in the technical circumstances. No personal data collected as part of the newsletter service will be passed on to third parties.
(4) The only mandatory information for sending the newsletter is your e-mail address. The provision of further, separately marked data is voluntary and will be used to address you personally. After your confirmation, we store your e-mail address for the purpose of sending the newsletter. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO.
(5) You can revoke your consent to the sending of the newsletter at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can send the revocation to us by any means of communication, for example by clicking on the link provided in each newsletter email, by email to email@example.com or by sending a message to the contact details provided in the imprint.
(6) We would like to point out that we evaluate your user behaviour when sending the newsletter. For this evaluation, the emails sent contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which are single-pixel image files stored on our website. For the evaluations, we link the data mentioned in section 4 and the web beacons with your e-mail address and an individual ID. You can object to this tracking at any time by clicking on the separate link provided in each email or by informing us via any other contact channel. The information will be stored for as long as you are subscribed to the newsletter. After unsubscribing, we store the data purely statistically and anonymously. Moreover, such tracking is not possible if you have deactivated the display of images by default in your e-mail program. In this case, the newsletter will not be fully displayed to you and you may not be able to use all functions. If you display the images manually, the above-mentioned tracking will take place.
(7) Newsletter - Mailchimp
The dispatch service provider may use the data of the recipients in pseudonymous form, i.e. without assignment to a user, to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimize the dispatch and presentation of the newsletters or for statistical purposes. However, the dispatch service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them itself or to pass the data on to third parties.
1. Use of social media plug-ins/links
(1) We currently use the following social media plug-ins/links: Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn.
When you visit our site, initially no personal data is passed on to the providers of the plug-ins/links. You can recognize the provider of the plug-in/link by the mark on the box above its initial letter or logo. We open the possibility for you to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in/link via the button. Only if you click on the marked box and thereby activate it, the plug-in provider receives the information that you have called up the corresponding website of our online offer. In addition, the data mentioned under item 4 of this declaration is transmitted. In the case of Facebook, according to the respective providers in Germany, the IP address is anonymized immediately after collection. By activating the plug-in/link, personal data is therefore transmitted from you to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (in the case of US providers, in the USA). Since the plug-in/link provider collects the data in particular via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies via your browser's security settings before clicking on the grayed-out box.
(2) We have neither influence on the collected data and data processing operations, nor are we aware of the full extent of the data collection, the purposes of the processing, the storage periods. We also have no information on the deletion of the collected data by the plug-in/link provider.
(3) The plug-in/link provider stores the data collected about you as usage profiles and uses them for purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the display of needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in/link provider to exercise this right. Via the plug-ins, we offer you the opportunity to interact with the social networks and other users so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.
(4) The data transfer takes place regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in/link provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in to the plug-in/link provider, your data collected by us will be directly assigned to your account with the plug-in/link provider. If you click the activated button and, for example, link to the page, the plug-in/link provider also saves this information in your user account and shares it publicly with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as this allows you to avoid an assignment to your profile with the plug-in/link provider.
(5) For further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plug-in/link provider, please refer to the data protection declarations of these providers communicated below. There you will also receive further information on your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy.

1. Use of Google AdSense
(1) This website uses the online advertising service Google AdSense, through which you can be presented with advertising tailored to your interests. We thereby pursue the interest of showing you advertising that might be of interest to you in order to make our website more interesting for you. For this purpose, statistical information about you is collected and processed by our advertising partners. These advertisements are recognizable by the reference "Google ads" in the respective advertisement.
(2) By visiting our website, Google receives the information that you have called up our website. For this purpose, Google uses a web beacon to set a cookie on your computer. The data mentioned under point 4 of this declaration is transmitted. We have no influence on the data collected, nor are we aware of the full extent of the data collection and the storage period. Your data will be transferred to the USA and evaluated there. If you are logged in with your Google account, your data can be directly assigned to it. If you do not want the assignment with your Google profile, you must log out. It is possible that this data will be passed on to third parties and authorities to contractual partners of Google. The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. This website does not place third-party ads via Google AdSense.
(3) You can prevent the installation of cookies from Google AdSense in various ways: a) by adjusting your browser software accordingly, in particular the suppression of third-party cookies will result in you not receiving ads from third-party providers; b) by deactivating interest-based ads on Google via the link https://www.google. de/ads/preferences, which setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies; c) by disabling the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the self-regulatory campaign "About Ads" via the link https://www.aboutads.info/choices, which setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies; d) by permanently disabling them in your Firefox, Internetexplorer or Google Chrome browsers at the link https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this offer to their full extent.
2. Use of Google Ads Conversion
(1) We use the offer of Google Ads to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising media (so-called Google Ads) on external websites. In relation to the data of the advertising campaigns, we can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are. In this way, we pursue the interest of displaying advertising that is of interest to you, making our website more interesting for you and achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs.
(2) These advertising materials are delivered by Google via so-called "ad servers". For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as display of the ads or clicks by users, can be measured. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Ads will store a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. For this cookie, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values.
(3) These cookies enable Google to recognize your internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of the website of an Ads customer and the cookie stored on his computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. A different cookie is assigned to each Ads customer. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across Ads customers' websites. We ourselves do not collect or process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. Based on these evaluations, we can see which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising media; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information.
(4) Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of Ads Conversion, Google receives the information that you have called up the relevant part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is a possibility that the provider may obtain and store your IP address.
(5) You can prevent participation in this tracking process in various ways: a) by making the appropriate settings in your browser software, in particular the suppression of third-party cookies will result in you not receiving ads from third-party providers; b) by disabling cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain "www.googleadservices.com", https://www.google. de/settings/ads, deleting this setting when you delete your cookies; c) by disabling the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the self-regulatory campaign "About Ads" via the link https://www.aboutads.info/choices, deleting this setting when you delete your cookies; d) by permanently disabling them in your Firefox, Internetexplorer or Google Chrome browsers at the link https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this offer in full.
(6) The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. Further information on data protection at Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy and https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html. Alternatively, you can visit the website of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) at https://www.networkadvertising.org.
In addition to Ads Conversion, we use the Google Remarketing application. This is a procedure with which we would like to address you again. Through this application, our advertisements can be displayed to you during your further internet use after visiting our website. This is done by means of cookies stored in your browser, which Google uses to record and evaluate your usage behavior when you visit various websites. In this way, Google can determine your previous visit to our website. According to its own statements, Google does not combine the data collected in the course of remarketing with your personal data, which may be stored by Google. In particular, according to Google, pseudonymization is used in remarketing.
4. Google Ads "Lead Form Extensions".
(1) Lead form extensions allow us to capture leads, i.e. contact requests, directly via our Google Ads. We hereby give our prospects and potential customers a simple option to contact us directly.
(2) The following personal data may be collected in this process: Name, email address, phone number and zip code. The leads generated in this way are stored by Google for a maximum of 30 days.
(3) In addition, there are two tracking options for the lead extension. If the prospective customer clicks on the CTA button, a micro conversion is generated. If he sends the completed lead form, the actual lead conversion results. Through this tracking function, the performance of the lead extension can be analyzed and thus the extension can be continuously optimized.
(4) This service is used in accordance with Art. 6 (1) f) DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest. This is that interested parties who search for our company on Google can contact us directly via the ad.
5. DoubleClick by Google
(2) Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with Google's server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of DoubleClick, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is a possibility that the provider may obtain and store your IP address.
