§ 11 Balance of interests

If the above-mentioned tracking softwares and plug-ins do not fulfill the European data protection standards with regard to rightful processing of Article 6 GDPR against its provisions, the following balance of interest is conducted alternatively:

The processing of data is rightful if processing thereof is necessary in order to pursue the justified interests of the person in charge or a third party as long as the interests, basic rights and freedom of the person whose personal data must be protected do not prevail. Justified interests include legal, factual, economic or ideational interests.

Purpose of data processing is the findability of the website and the analysis of user behaviours.

In order to achieve this purpose, the tracking softwares and plug-ins used are suitable.

The necessity is fixed since tracking softwares and plug-ins are necessary to achieve the purpose

They are adequate since they are reasonable for the user and the adequate data protection level is not at risk.
