Data privacy statement

The protection of your personal data is very important to us. We only collect personal data about you with your knowledge and consent, and we would like to inform you about what data we may record and what purpose we are using it for.

We process your personal data only in accordance with this data privacy statement and the relevant statutory provisions, in particular the European General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter referred to as “DS-GVO”).

1. Collection, processing and use of personal data

We collect, process, and store the following data during a call of this website or individual files on the website: IP address, website from which the file was retrieved, name of the file, date and time of retrieval, amount of data transmitted and message of success of retrieval (so-called web log). We use the access data exclusively in non-personalized form for the continuous improvement of our web offer and for statistical purposes.

The processing of the data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) DS-GVO.

2. Use of cookies

ABS uses cookies to improve the presentation and navigation. A cookie is a text file sent from the web server to the browser. This file contains the URL visited, the date of the visit and an expiry date that determines the period of activity of the cookie. ABS uses cookies to determine the preferred areas of the ABS website and also to enable the user to save their personal settings so that they are available in case the page is accessed again. For the determination of the preferred visited areas of the ABS website, statistics are generated on the visits of the website.

Visitors are informed on the website via a banner about the use of cookies.

You have the choice to decide if you want to accept cookies or not. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or you can exercise your legal right to object by blocking cookies in your browser settings.

If you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use the full range of website features.

3. Google Analytics

On our website we use Google Analytics with the extension “anonymizeIp”, a web analysis service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area Google processes shortened IP addresses. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. A personal reference can thus be excluded. If the data collected about you is assigned a personal reference, it will be immediately excluded and the personal data will be deleted.

The legal basis for our use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) DS-GVO. On our behalf, Google will use the data obtained to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services related to website activity and internet usage. The purpose of the processing is the analysis and optimization of our website.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by using appropriate browser settings, for example by generally deactivating the automatic setting of cookies. In this case, certain features of this website may not be usable in a proper way.

In addition, you can prevent the collection of the data related to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as their transmission to and processing by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available from:

4. Integration of Youtube videos

On our website videos are integrated, which are stored on the video platform and can be played directly from our website.

When you visit a page on our website that incorporates a Youtube video, you will be connected to the Youtube servers in the United States. This will send data to Youtube, for example, on which page of our website the video was accessed by you. If you have a user account on Youtube and are logged in, the above mentioned information will be assigned to your user account. If you use the Youtube video embedded on our website, for example by clicking on “Play”, this information will also be assigned to your user account. You can prevent this by logging out of your user account before using our website and deleting corresponding cookies from Youtube.

5. Google Fonts

This website uses external fonts (Google fonts). Google Fonts is a service of Google Inc. (“Google”). The integration of these web fonts is done by a server call, usually a Google server in the US. This will provide information to the server on which parts of our website you have visited. Also, the IP address of the browser of the terminal of the visitor of this website is stored by Google. If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font will be used by your computer.

6. Google Maps

On this website we use the offer of Google Maps. This allows us to show you interactive maps directly on the website, allowing you to conveniently use the map feature.

By visiting the website Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the data referred to in Art. 1 para. 3 of this declaration will be transmitted. This happens regardless of whether you have a user account on Google and your log-in status to this user account. When you’re logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not wish to be associated with your profile on Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for purposes of advertising, market research and/or custom design of its website. Such an evaluation is done in particular (even for non-logged in users) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles. To exercise this right you are obliged to contact Google directly.

For more information on the purpose and scope of Google’s data collection and processing, please refer to Google’s privacy policy.

We only disclose your personal information to other companies and individuals whom we have assigned to perform individual tasks and to provide services for us. The disclosure of your personal data to these companies is limited to what is necessary to carry out their work. These companies are bound by the data protection regulations, have been carefully selected and are regularly monitored by us. In addition, we only pass on your personal data to third parties, when we are legally obliged to do so or by court order.

9. Data security

ABS uses appropriate technical and organizational security precautions to protect data against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction, or access by unauthorized persons.

Please note that data transmission over the Internet (for example, when communicating via e-mail) may have security vulnerabilities. A complete protection of the data from the access by third parties is not possible.

Please note that personal information that you publish in public areas, such as commenting on news etc., can be misused by other users.
