Cookies contain information which is generated in connection with the specific device used, but this does not mean that we gain direct knowledge of your identity as a result.
One reason cookies are used is to make use of our website more convenient for you. To this end, we use “session cookies” to allow us to recognize that you have already visited certain pages in our website. These cookies are automatically deleted when you leave our site.
If you select “preference cookies” or choose “Accept all” in your cookie settings, we will also place temporary cookies designed to optimize user-friendliness, which will be stored on your device for a certain period of time. If you visit our site again to take advantage of our services, the website will automatically recognize that you have visited us before, as well as your settings and selections, so that you don’t have to enter them again.
If you select “statistics cookies” or choose “Accept all” in your cookie settings, we will place cookies which are designed to record use of our website for statistical purposes and to analyze website use for the purpose of optimizing our offerings for you (see No. 7 below). If you visit our website again, these cookies allow us to automatically recognize that you have been here before. They are automatically deleted after a certain period of time.
The data processed using cookies is necessary for the aforementioned purposes for the protection of our legitimate interests as well as for those of third parties in accordance with Article 6(1) Sentence 1(f) of the GDPR.
You can configure your browser not to store cookies on your computer or so that a message appears before a new cookie is created. But if you completely deactivate cookies, you may not be able to use all of the functions of our website.
6. Use of CIS (Creditor Information System)
The controller has integrated the CIS (creditor information system) component on this website. CIS is a web system which provides creditors with round-the-clock information about insolvency proceedings and helps creditors file proof of debt and transmit the collected data electronically to the competent insolvency administrator. CIS is used to provide a comprehensive information service for creditors.
CIS is operated by STP Portal GmbH, Lorenzstraße 29, 76135 Karlsruhe, Germany.
CIS places a cookie on the data subject’s IT system. Placement of the cookie allows the user to use CIS, and is necessary e.g. to log in using the CIS PIN. Cookies cause no damage to your computer and contain no viruses. Cookies serve to make our offerings more user-friendly, more effective and more secure. Cookies are small text files which are placed on your computer and stored by your browser. The cookies used are “session cookies” and are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. You can configure your browser to notify you when cookies are placed and allow cookies only in a single case, to block cookies in certain cases or in general, or to automatically delete cookies when you close the browser. CIS functions will be limited if cookies are deactivated.
7. Analytics Tools
If you select “statistics” cookies or choose “Accept all” in your cookie settings, we will take the tracking measures cited below based on Article 6(1) Sentence 1(f) of the GDPR. These tracking measures are designed to customize and continually optimize our website. We also use tracking measures in order to keep a statistical record of use of our website and to analyze this use for the purpose of optimizing our offerings for you. These interests are to be regarded as legitimate interests in terms of the GDPR.
The individual purposes of data processing and data categories are evident from the relevant tracking tools.
We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service of Google Inc. (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; im Folgenden „Google“) in order to customize and continually optimize our website. This involves use of pseudonymized user profiles and cookies (see No. 5 above). The information about your use of this website which is generated by the cookie, such as
- your browser type/version;
- the operating system used;
- the referrer URL (the previous page);
- the host name of the accessing computer (IP address); and
- the time of the server request;
will be transferred to a Google server in the US and stored there. The information will be used in order to analyze use of the website, compile reports about website activity and provide other services associated with website and internet use for purposes of market research and customization of this website. This information may also be transferred to third parties if required by law or if those third parties are acting as processors. Under no circumstances will your IP address be combined with other Google data. The IP addresses will be anonymized so as to prevent matching (IP masking).
You can prevent the placement of statistics cookies (Google Analytics) by making the relevant selection in your browser software settings, but we would point out that, if you do so, you may not be able to take full advantage of all of this website’s functions.
You can also block collection of the data generated by the cookie relating to your use of the website (including your IP address), as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).
As an alternative to the browser add-on, particularly for browsers on mobile devices, you can also block data collection by Google Analytics by clicking this link. This places an opt-out cookie which prevents collection of your data on future visits to this website. The opt-out cookie applies only in this browser and for our website only, and is placed on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you will have to place the opt-out cookie again.
More information about data privacy in connection with Google Analytics can be found e.g. in Google Analytics Help (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de).

- under Article 18 of the GDPR, to request the restriction of processing of your personal data if you dispute the accuracy of the data, if the processing is unlawful but you oppose erasure, if we no longer need the data but you need the data for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims, or if you object to processing in accordance with Article 21 of the GDPR;

In the latter case, you have a general right to object, which we will honor even if you do not specify your particular situation.
If you would like to exercise your right to object or withdraw consent, you need only send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
10. Data Security
We employ the commonly used SSL (secure socket layer) method for website visits with the highest level of encryption your browser will support, typically 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we will use 128-bit v3 technology instead. You can tell whether any given page of our website is being transferred in encrypted fashion by whether the key or lock icon on the status bar on the bottom of your browser is presented in the closed position.
We also take suitable technical and organizational security measures to protect your data from intentional or accidental manipulation, complete or partial loss or destruction and unauthorized third-party access. Our security measures are continually improved as the technology develops.
