The term ‘User’ includes all visitors to our Online Offering. The terms used, such as User, are to be understood as gender-neutral.
2 Basic information on data processing
We process personal data of Users only in compliance with the relevant data protection provisions in accordance with the principles of data economy and data avoidance. This means that the User’s data will only be processed if a legal permission exists, in particular if the data is necessary for the provision of our contractual services and online services, or is required by law, or if consent has been given.
We take organizational, contractual and technical security measures in accordance with the state of the art to ensure that the provisions of data protection laws are complied with and thus to protect the data processed by us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against access by unauthorized persons.
If content, tools or other means from other providers (hereinafter jointly referred to as Third Party Providers) are used within the scope of this data protection policy and their named registered office is abroad, it is to be assumed that a transfer of data to the countries in which the Third Party Providers are based takes place. The transfer of data to third countries takes place either on the basis of a legal permission, user consent or special contractual clauses that ensure a legally required security of the data.
- Processing of Personal Data
The personal data, in addition to the uses expressly mentioned in this Data Protection Policy, are processed for the following purposes based on legal permissions or consent of the Users: The provision, execution, maintenance, optimization and security of our services, services and user services; the provision of effective customer service and technical support.
We transmit Users’ data to third parties only if this is necessary for billing purposes (e.g. to a payment service provider) or for other purposes if these are necessary to fulfil our contractual obligations to Users (e.g. communication of addresses to suppliers).
When contacting us (via contact form or email), the User’s details will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and in case follow-up questions arise.
Personal data is deleted if it has fulfilled its intended purpose and there are no storage obligations that prevent its deletion.
- Collection of Access Data
We collect data about each access to the server on which this service is located (so-called server log files). The access data includes the name of the website accessed, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the User’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.
We use the log data without attribution to the person of the User or other profiling in accordance with legal requirements only for statistical analysis for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of our online offer. However, we reserve the right to check the log data retrospectively if there is a justified suspicion of unlawful use on the basis of concrete indications.
- Collection of Visitor Data
This website is hosted by WordPress. WordPress collects personal data when you visit this website. This includes:
- Information about your browser, network and device.
- Web pages you visited before coming to this website
- Your IP address
WordPress needs the data to operate this website and to protect and improve its platform and services. Squarespace analyzes the data in a depersonalized form.
This website uses font files from Google Fonts and Adobe Fonts. In order for you to view this website correctly, servers that store the font files may receive personal information about you. This includes:
- Information about your browser, network or device.
- Your IP address
- Cookies, Reach Measurement
The viewing of this Online Offer is also possible under exclusion of cookies. If users do not want cookies to be stored on their computer, they are asked to deactivate the corresponding option in the system settings of their browser. Stored cookies can be deleted in the system settings of the browser. The exclusion of cookies can lead to functional restrictions of this online offer.
It is possible to manage many online ad cookies from companies via the US site (accessible at http://www.aboutads.info/choices) or the EU site (accessible at http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/).
- Google Analytics
Google will use this information on our behalf for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. In doing so, pseudonymous user profiles can be created from the processed data.
We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymization activated. 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 of 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.
The IP address transmitted by the User’s browser is not merged with other data from Google. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; Users can also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the online offer to Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
For more information about Google’s use of data for advertising purposes, settings and opt-out options, please visit Google’s websites:
- https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners (data use by Google when you use our partners’ websites or apps),
- http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads (data use for advertising purposes),
- http://www.google.de/settings/ads (manage information Google uses to show you ads)
- http://www.google.com/ads/preferences” (determine which ads Google shows you).
- Google Re/Marketing Services
We use the marketing and remarketing services (Google marketing services for short) of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, (Google).
The Google marketing services allow us to display advertisements for and on our website in a more targeted manner in order to present Users only with ads that potentially match their interests. If, for example, Users are shown ads for products they were interested in on other websites, this is referred to as remarketing. For these purposes, when our website and other websites on which Google marketing services are active are called up, a code is executed directly by Google and so-called (re)marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also known as web beacons) are integrated into the website. With their help, an individual cookie, i.e. a small file, is stored on the user’s device (similar technologies can be used instead of cookies). The cookies can be set by various domains, including google.com, doubleclick.net, invitemedia.com, admeld.com, googlesyndication.com or googleadservices.com. This file records which websites the user has visited, which content he is interested in and which offers he has clicked on, as well as technical information on the browser and operating system, referring websites, time of visit and other information on the use of the online offer. The IP address of the User is also recorded, whereby we inform Google Analytics that the IP address is shortened within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area and only in exceptional cases is transferred in full to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address is not merged with user data within other Google offerings. This aforementioned information may also be combined with such information from other sources. If the user subsequently visits other websites, he or she may be shown ads tailored to his or her interests.
User data is processed pseudonymously as part of Google’s marketing services. I.e. Google does not store and process e.g. the name or email address of the users, but processes the relevant data cookie-related within pseudonymous user profiles. I.e. from Google’s perspective, the ads are not managed and displayed for a specifically identified person, but for the cookie holder, regardless of who this cookie holder is. This does not apply if a User has expressly allowed Google to process the data without this pseudonymization. The information collected by DoubleClick about users is transmitted to Google and stored on Google’s servers in the USA.
The Google marketing services we use include the online advertising program Google AdWords. In the case of Google AdWords, each AdWords customer receives a different conversion cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained using the cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The AdWords customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users.
Another Google marketing service we use is Google Tag Manager, which allows other Google analytics and marketing services to be integrated into our website (e.g. AdWords, DoubleClick or Google Analytics).
If you wish to object to the collection by Google marketing services, you can use the settings and opt-out options provided by Google: http://www.google.com/ads/preferences .
11 Facebook Social Plugins
Our online offer uses social plugins (plugins) of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (Facebook). The plugins are recognizable by one of the Facebook logos (white f on blue tile, the terms Like, Like me or a thumbs up sign) or are marked with the addition Facebook Social Plugin. The list and appearance of Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/ .
When a User calls up a function of this online offer that contains such a plugin, his or her device establishes a direct connection with Facebook’s servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to the User’s device and integrated by the latter into the online offer. In the process, usage profiles of the Users can be created from the processed data. We therefore have no influence on the scope of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore inform users according to our level of knowledge.
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a User has accessed the corresponding page of the Online Offer. If the User is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. If Users interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the Like button or posting a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your device directly to Facebook and stored there. If a User is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will learn and store his or her IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is stored in Germany.
If a User is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him/her via this online offer and link it to his/her membership data stored with Facebook, he/she must log out of Facebook and delete his/her cookies before using our Online Offer. Further settings and objections to the use of data for advertising purposes, are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads or via the US site http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU site http://www.youronlinechoices.com/ . The settings are platform-independent, i.e. they are adopted for all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.
- Integration of third-party services and content
It may happen that content or services from third-party providers, such as city maps or fonts from other websites, are integrated within our Online Offer. The integration of content from third-party providers always requires that the third-party providers perceive the IP address of the User, as without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to the User’s browser. The IP address is thus required for the display of this content. Furthermore, the providers of the third-party content can set their own cookies and process the users’ data for their own purposes. In doing so, user profiles can be created from the processed data. We will use this content as sparingly as possible and in a data-avoiding manner and select reliable third-party providers with regard to data security.
The following presentation provides an overview of third-party providers and their content, along with links to their privacy statements, which contain further information on the processing of data and, in part already mentioned here, opt-out options:
- Rights of Users and Deletion of Data
Users have the right, upon request and free of charge, to receive information about the personal data that we have stored about them.
In addition, Users have the right to correct inaccurate data, revoke consent, block and delete their personal data, as well as the right to file a complaint with the competent supervisory authority in the event that unlawful data processing is assumed.
The data stored by us will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for their intended purpose and the deletion does not conflict with any statutory retention obligations.
14 Changes to the data protection declaration
We reserve the right to change the data protection declaration in order to adapt it to changed legal situations, or in the event of changes to the service as well as data processing. However, this only applies with regard to declarations on data processing. Insofar as user consents are required or components of the data protection declaration contain provisions of the contractual relationship with the Users, the changes will only be made with the consent of the Users.
Users are requested to inform themselves regularly about the content of the data protection declaration.
