‘Processing’ refers to any operation, whether supported by an automatic procedure or not, or any series of such operations which is connected with personal data.

Google Analytics is used to analyse visitor behaviour on our online platforms. Google uses the data and information obtained among other things to evaluate the use of our services. The purpose of this is to compile online reports of platform activity for us, to provide other services connected with the use of our online platforms, and to help develop and enhance such services in line with consumer needs. Google Analytics installs cookies on the IT system of the data subject. IP anonymisation is activated on this website. Your IP address will therefore be shortened by Google within the Member States of the European Union and in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google may also pass this information on to third parties if required by law or if such third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Under no circumstances will Google link your IP address with other Google data. By using the online platforms you consent to Google processing the data it collects about you in the way and for the purpose described above.
The purpose of Google AdWords is to promote our online services by showing advertisements relevant to the user’s interests on the websites of third-party companies and in the hits generated by the Google search engine. A conversion cookie is installed by Google on your system. By using the online platforms you consent to Google processing the data it collects about you in the way and for the purpose described above.
The personal data gathered in connection with subscription to the newsletter is used exclusively to send out that newsletter and for marketing purposes internally within EGK. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be sent notifications by email if this is necessary to provide the newsletter service or for registration in connection with it. No personal data gathered in connection with the newsletter service is passed on to third parties. Newsletter subscribers can cancel their subscriptions at any time by clicking on the ‘unsubscribe’ link. Some of the content in the EGK newsletter contains tracking pixels. These permit a statistical evaluation of the success and effectiveness of online marketing measures. In collecting and processing personal data in connection with the dispatch of the newsletter, EGK is justified by the subscriber's consent.
The online forms on our online platforms offer you the opportunity to contact us. For example, you can request your tax statement, notify us of your new address, register for events, submit general enquiries or request a quote (this list is not exhaustive). Certain information, such as your name, address, date of birth, telephone number and email address are required to use the online forms. In such cases, we request the information that is necessary to process your enquiry
In certain areas we work together with external service providers. These receive only the data that they need to fulfil their contract with us. They are permitted to process this data in accordance with the statutory or contractual requirements, and only to the same extent as EGK itself would be permitted.
In the absence of statutory obligations or official instructions to the contrary, your personal data will be stored for as long as is necessary to provide the service which is the underlying reason for processing that data.
EGK has instituted a large number of technical and organisational measures to ensure the greatest possible protection of the data that has been recorded. Notwithstanding this, the transmission of data via the internet can fundamentally entail security vulnerabilities so absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, EGK accepts no liability whatsoever for data theft and its resulting unlawful processing. Please update regularly the security settings of the systems you use.
You have the right at any time to request written information about the personal data that is stored about you or to ask that it be amended or deleted. You can also request the correction of incorrect data. Such requests should be sent to the EGK Data Protection Officer (address given below) by regular post, accompanied by a verified copy of an official identification document. Post offices or local government offices will produce verified copies of official identification documents against presentation of the original. Should you believe that your data is being processed in a way which violates data protection law, you can also report this to our Data Protection Officer. You also have the right at any time to revoke your consent to your data being processed. This notice must be given in writing.
If you have any questions about data protection law or any enquiries about the rights to your personal data, the EGK Data Protection Officer will be pleased to assist you.
