We are pleased with your visit to our Website. Subsequently, we would like to inform you about the processing of your data in accordance with Art. 13 General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The person responsible for the data collection and processing described below is the employee named in the imprint (https://www.nextpractice.de/en/imprint).
Storing the IP address for security purposes
We store the IP address transmitted by your web browser for a strictly earmarked period of seven days in order to be able to detect, limit and eliminate attacks on our web pages. After this period has expired, we delete or make the IP address anonymous. The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) clause 1 (f) GDPR.
Usage of data
When you visit our websites, so-called usage data is temporarily stored on our web server for statistical purposes as a protocol in order to improve the quality of our websites. The data set comprises:
- the web page from which the file was requested,
- file name,
- query date and time,
- the amount of data transferred,
- access status (file transferred, file not found etc.),
- description of the browser type used,
- IP-Address of the requesting computer, truncated to prevent personal reference.
The log data mentioned are only stored anonymously.
We transmit your data during order processing in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR to service providers (e.g., hosting service providers) who support us in operating our websites and the associated processes. Our service providers are bound by strict instructions and contractual obligations. We use the following service providers:
Hosting service providers
Web analytics providers
In some cases, we transfer personal data to a third country outside the EU. We ensure an appropriate level of data protection at all times.
In the case of Google (Google Analytics, DoubleClick (USA)), an appropriate level of data protection is ensured by the corresponding participation in the Privacy Shield Agreement (Art. 45 (1) GDPR)
Your data are not shared with third parties within the meaning of Art. 4 (10) GDPR.
We use session cookies and permanent cookies on our websites. Processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) clause 1 (f) GDPR and in the interest of optimising or enabling user guidance and adapting the presentation of our website.
You can configure your browser to inform you of cookie placement. This will help clarify their use. You can also delete cookies at any time using the corresponding browser setting and prevent the setting of new cookies. Please note that our web pages may not be dis-played optimally and some of its features may no longer be technically available.
We use Google Remarketing technologies
We use Google’s cross-device remarketing technologies to be able to display targeted advertising on other websites based on your visit to our websites. Data processing is based on Art. 6 (1) clause 1 (a) of the GDPR.
How does remarketing work?
When you visit our websites, Google may retrieve recognition features for your browser or terminal device (e.g., a so-called browser fingerprint), evaluate your IP address or store a recognition feature in the form of a small text file on your terminal device (e.g. a so-called third party cookie). Google may also link and store your visit to our website with one or more of these recognition features in order to display our advertising on other pages on the Internet.
The recognition features described above are designed as pseudonyms and can be used by Google to recognise your terminal device on other Internet pages. For example, when you visit a page that participates in Google’s display advertising network (advertising on Google’s behalf), Google can recognise your device and browser using the features listed above.
We can also provide our websites with so-called ‘remarketing tags’. This means that we can include keywords in our Internet pages that contain statements about the content of the page displayed (such as product or service categories). The keywords we use do not contain any personal or sensitive information. Google maintains and stores these keywords for the above recognition features. So when you visit a page that we’ve tagged with a specific product category, Google stores that keyword and assigns it to your recognition characteristics.
We can thereby commission Google to place advertisements on other websites based on the pages visited by us. If you visit another website that participates in Google’s display advertising network, Google can use the recognition features and the keywords stored for these recognition features to determine whether and, if so, which of our ads should be displayed to you.

What does cross-device remarketing mean?
If you sign in to Google services with your own credentials or use one or more of your own Google accounts, Google may link the recognition features of different browsers and devices. So if Google has created a unique identifier for the laptop, desktop PC or smartphone or tablet you are using, these identifiers can be associated once you use or have used a Google service with your sign-in information. In this way, Google can also play our advertising campaigns on terminal devices in a targeted manner. Google will only do this, however, if you have agreed to this data processing in the past.
You have the option of implementing settings for advertising
You can object to this form of advertising at any time. To do so, please visit https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922 and disable personalised advertising. Please note that these settings may not affect all devices and browsers. Further information is also available at https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922.
As a rule, the cookie-generated data regarding your use of this website will be forwarded to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, because we have activated IP anonymisation on our websites, your IP address will first be truncated by Google within Member States of the European Union. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA (an appropriate level of data protection pursuant to Art. 45 (1) GDPR through Google’s participation in the Privacy Shield) and only truncated there. We have concluded a contract for order processing in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR with Google Inc. (USA). Google will therefore only use all information for strictly intended purposes in order to evaluate the use of our websites for us and compile reports on website activities.
You can object to the processing at any time. Please use one of the following options:
You can prevent cookies from being stored by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser; however, please note that by doing so, you may not be able to enjoy the full functionality of this website.

You may request that your inaccurate personal data be rectified and the incomplete per-sonal data be completed without undue delay, where necessary.
You may also request that your personal data be erased without undue delay if one of the reasons listed in Article 17 GDPR applies in particular, if the data are no longer required for the intended purpose, for example.
- The right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR)
You may request a restriction on processing where one of the conditions listed in Article 18 GDPR applies, e.g., if you have objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR pending the verification whether our legitimate interests override yours.

In certain cases, set out in Article 20 GDPR, you are entitled to receive your personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format or to request the transmis-sion of the data to a third party.

If data are collected on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) (data processing to protect legitimate interests), you are entitled to object to processing at any time on the grounds that arise from your particular situation. We shall no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing which override your inter-ests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
- The right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
In accordance with Article 77 of the GDPR, you may appeal to a supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection regulations.
