IV. Do we transfer data to the USA?

We offer some services that involve or may involve the transfer of data to the USA. However, in order to use these services – unless there is another justification, such as the fulfillment of contractual obligations – it is necessary that you consent to the use of your data collected via these services, if necessary also in the USA (Art 49 (1)(a) DSGVO). We record this consent – depending on the service – via our cookie banner or separately by means of a corresponding declaration of consent directly before the use of a service offered.

Your consent is required because, according to recent official and court decisions and the case law of the ECJs, the USA is not certified as having an adequate level of data protection in the processing of personal data (C-311/18, Schrems II). These decisions by authorities and courts critically demonstrate that access by US authorities (FISA 0702) is not comprehensively restricted by law, does not require approval by an independent authority, and no relevant legal remedies are available to data subjects in the event of such interventions.

Apart from the contracts concluded with US service providers, we have no direct influence on access by US authorities to personal data transferred to service providers in the USA when using the services. Even if we assume that our service providers take the necessary steps to ensure the promised level of protection in accordance with the contractual agreements concluded with us, access by US authorities to data processed in the USA is still conceivable.

We therefore request your consent to the processing of data in the USA before using such services.


V. Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphi-theatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your usage of this website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information on our behalf for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to website operators. We only use Google Analytics with active IP anonymization. This means that the IP address of the user is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

We use Google Analytics to analyze and regularly improve the use of our website. For more information on Google’s terms of use and Google’s privacy policy, please visit https://google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or https://policies.google.com/?hl=de.


VI. Facebook fan page

We have a Facebook fan page at https://www.facebook.com/LeitnerLeitner. The aim of this fan page is to share information about our company’s activities, to implement marketing strategies, and to provide an additional channel for communicating with us.

In this regard, we and Facebook, operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland, which provides us with this service, are “joint controllers”. In principle, you can select the personal data Facebook shares with us in your settings. If you do not want Facebook to share this data with us, all the insights we receive regarding your use of our fan page and your personal data will be anonymized.

For this purpose, we have concluded a so-called Joint Controller Arrangement  (Article 26 EU GDPR) with Facebook, which sets out the respective rights and obligations of us and Facebook. You can find these at https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum. In this regard, we also kindly ask you to read Facebook’s Data Policy at https://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

Under the Joint Controller Arrangement entered into between Facebook and us, Facebook undertakes to be the first port of call for data subjects with regard to the processing of insights data and to fulfil its associated responsibilities and obligations.

You can therefore assert your rights as a data subject against both us, as set out in Section C. 3. of this Privacy Policy, and against Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland.
