Data privacy

Privacy Notice

 

  1. Introduction

We would like to use the information below to provide you "data subject" with an overview of our processing of your personal data and your rights under data protection law. It is generally possible to use our website without entering personal data. However, if you wish to make use of special services offered by our company through our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain your consent.

Personal data, such as your name, address, or email address, is always processed in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the "BigRep GmbH". The aim of this Privacy Notice is to inform you about the scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process.

As the data controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete possible protection of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can in principle have security gaps so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you are free to submit personal data on alternative ways, such as by phone or by post to us.

 

  1. Data controller

The data controller, as defined by the GDPR, is:

BigRep GmbH

Gneisenaustraße 66,

10961 Berlin, Germany

Phone: +49 30 20 84 82 60

Email: [email protected]

 

Data controller’s representative: Dr. Sven Thate, Dr. Reinhard Festag

 

  1. Data protection officer

You can reach the data protection officer under [email protected] or under our postal address with the addition “Data protection officer”.

 

  1. Legal basis for processing

Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR serves as our company’s legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.

If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, processing is based on Article 6 Paragraph 1(b) GDPR. The same applies to those processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual measures, such as in cases of queries regarding our products or services.

If our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, processing is based on Article 6 Paragraph 1(c) GDPR.

In rare cases, processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if someone visiting our business were to be injured and their name, age, health insurance data or other vital information needed to be disclosed to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Processing would then be based on Article 6 Paragraph 1(d) GDPR.

Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR. Processing operations not based on any of the above-mentioned legal bases may be carried out on the basis of Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or those of a third party, provided the interests and fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not take precedence. We are permitted to engage in such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned in European law. In this respect, the legislature took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if you are a customer of our company (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

 

  1. Disclosure of data to third parties

Your personal data will not be sent to third parties for purposes other than those listed below.

We will disclose your personal data to third parties if:

  1. you have expressly consented to this pursuant to Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1(a) GDPR,
  2. disclosure under Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1(f) GDPR is permitted to safeguard our legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not disclosing your data,
  3. in the event that there is a legal obligation to disclose your data pursuant to Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1(c) GDPR and
  4. if this is legally permissible and necessary for the performance of our contract with you pursuant to Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1(b).

 

In order to protect your data and, if necessary, to enable us to transfer data to third countries (outside the EU/EEA), we have concluded agreements on order processing based on the standard contractual clauses of the European Commission. If the standard contractual clauses are not sufficient to create an adequate level of security, your consent can serve as the legal basis for transmission to third countries in accordance with Article 49 (1) (a) GDPR. This sometimes does not apply to data transfers to third countries for which the European Commission has issued an adequacy decision in accordance with Art. 45 GDPR.

  1. Technology

6.1 SSL/TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login details or contact requests that you send to us as the website operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by your browser-s address bar reading "https://" instead of "http://" and the lock symbol in the browser bar.

We use this technology to protect your transmitted data.

 

6.2 Data collection when visiting the website

If you only use our website for informational purposes, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect the data your browser sends our server (in what is known as "server log files"). Our website collects a range of general data and information each time you access a website or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the server’s log files. It may be collected.

  1. the browser types and versions used,
  2. the operating system used by the accessing system,
  3. the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (called a referrer),
  4. the sub-pages accessed via an accessing system on our website,
  5. the date and time the website is accessed,
  6. an internet protocol address (IP address) and
  7. the accessing system's internet service provider.

 

No conclusions are drawn about you when using this general data and information. Instead, this information is needed to

  1. properly deliver our website content,
  2. to optimise the content of the website as well as to advertise it,
  3. to ensure the continued functioning of our information technology systems and our website’s technology as well as to
  4. provide the information necessary for law enforcement authorities to prosecute in the event of a cyber-attack.

This collected data and information is therefore statistically analysed and further analysed by us with the aim of increasing data protection and data security within our company to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data being processed by us. The data from the server log files is stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

The legal basis for data processing is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is based on the purposes listed above for the collection of data.

6.3 Encrypted payment transactions

If, after concluding a paid contract, you need to provide us with your payment details (e.g. account number for direct debit authorisation), this data is required for payment processing.

Payment transactions via the usual means of payment (Visa/MasterCard, direct debit) are carried out exclusively via an encrypted SSL or TLS connection. You can recognise an encrypted connection by your browser’s address bar reading "https://" instead of "http://" and the lock symbol in the browser bar.

We use this technology to protect your transmitted data.

 

  1. Cookies

7.1 General information about cookies

We use cookies on our website. Cookies are small files that are automatically created by your browser and stored on your IT system (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit our website.

Information generated from the specific device used is stored in cookies. This does not mean, however, that we will gain immediate knowledge of your identity.

The use of cookies helps us make it more convenient for you to use our website. For example, we use session cookies to detect whether you have already visited individual pages on our website. These are erased automatically when you leave our website.

We also use temporary cookies to optimise user-friendliness. These cookies are stored on your device for a specific period of time. If you return to our website to use our services, cookies allow us to automatically recognise that you have visited our website previously and remember the inputs and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.

We also use cookies to statistically record the use of our website and analyse it for the purpose of optimising our services. These cookies allow us to automatically recognise that you have already visited our website when you visit our website again. These cookies are automatically erased after a defined period of time.

7.2 Legal basis for the use of cookies

The data processed by cookies, which are required for the proper functioning of the website, are to safeguard our legitimate interests pursuant to Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1(f) GDPR.

For all other cookies you have given your consent to this through our opt-in cookie banner in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

7.3 Real Cookie Banner (Consent Management Tool)

We use the consent management platform "Real Cookie Banner" from devowl.io GmbH, Tannet 12, D-94539 Grafling. This service enables us to obtain and manage the consent of website users for data processing.

Real Cookie Banner collects data generated by end users who use our website. When an end user gives consent, Real Cookie Banner automatically logs the following data:

  • Browser Information
  • Date and time of access
  • Device information
  • The URL of the page visited
  • Banner Language
  • Consent ID
  • The consent status of the end user, which serves as proof of consent

Consent status is also stored in the end user's browser, allowing the website to automatically read and honor the end user's consent on all subsequent page requests and future end user sessions for up to 12 months. The consent data (consent and revocation of consent) are stored for three years. The storage period corresponds to the regular limitation period according to § 195 BGB. The data will then be deleted immediately.

The functionality of the website is not guaranteed without the processing described. There is no possibility of objection on the part of the user as long as there is a legal obligation to obtain the user's consent to certain data processing operations (Art. 7 Para. 1, 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. c DS-GVO).

Real Cookie Banner is the recipient of your personal data and works for us as a processor. Data processing takes place exclusively in the European Union.

Detailed information on the use of Real Cookie Banner can be found at: https://devowl.io/de/wordpress-real-cookie-banner/

  1. Contents of our website

8.1 Registering as a user

You have the option to register on our website by providing personal data.

The input screen used to register in each case determines what personal data is shared with us. The personal data you enter will be collected and stored exclusively for internal use by us and for our own purposes. We may arrange for data to be shared with one or more data processors, such as a parcel service, which will also use your personal data solely for internal purposes attributable to us.

When you register on our website, the IP address assigned by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and the date and time of registration are also stored. This is done only for the purpose of preventing our services from being misused. If necessary, this data may be used to clarify the situation surrounding any crimes committed. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary for our security. This data will not be disclosed to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to do so or the data is used for criminal prosecution.

Your registration, including the voluntary entry of personal data, also allows us to offer you content or services which, due to their nature, may only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to modify the personal data they provided during the registration process at any time or have it completely erased from our database.

We will provide you with information at any time on request as to what personal data is stored about you. We will also rectify or erase delete personal data at your request, unless legal retention obligations to the contrary are in place. Data subjects may contact the data protection officer named in this Privacy Notice and all other employees for this purpose.

Your data is processed in the interests of simple, convenient use of our website. This constitutes a legitimate interest as defined by Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR.

8.2 Data processing when opening a customer account and for contract execution

Pursuant to Article 6 Paragraph 1(b) GDPR, personal data is collected and processed if you provide it to us for the execution of a contract or when opening a customer account. The data collected is shown in each input form. You may erase your customer account at any time by sending a message to the data controller’s address as stated above. We store and use the data you provide to execute contracts. After complete execution of the contract or erasure of your customer account, your data will be blocked, taking into account tax and commercial retention periods, and erased once these periods have expired unless you have expressly consented to the further use of your data or we are legally permitted to further use your data, about which we will inform you below.

8.3 Data processing for order processing

The personal data we collect is disclosed to the transport company hired to deliver goods under the scope of contract execution, provided this is necessary for the delivery of the goods. We disclose your payment details to the bank commissioned as part of payment processing, provided this is necessary for payment processing. If payment service providers are used, we will explicitly inform you about this below. The legal basis for this transfer of data is Article 6 Paragraph 1(b) GDPR.

8.4 Conclusion of contracts with the online shop, retailers and dispatch of goods

We only send personal data to third parties where necessary as part of contract execution, for example to the companies entrusted with the delivery of the goods or the bank entrusted with processing payment. No data is otherwise sent unless you have expressly agreed to this. Your data will not be disclosed to third parties without your express consent, for example for advertising purposes.

The basis for data processing is Article 6 Paragraph 1(b) GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

8.5 Contact/contact form

Personal data is collected when you contact us (e.g. using our contact form or by email). If you use a contact form to get in touch with us, the contact form you use will indicate the data being collected. This data is stored and used exclusively for the purpose of responding to your query or establishing contact and the associated technical administration. The legal basis for data processing is our legitimate interest in responding to your request pursuant to Article 6 Paragraph 1(f)f GDPR. If the aim of you contacting us is to conclude a contract, processing is also legally based on Article 6 Paragraph 1(b) GDPR. Your data will be erased once we have finished processing your query. This is the case when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the relevant facts have been clarified in a conclusive manner and there are no statutory retention obligations in place that prevent its erasure.

8.6 Services/digital goods

We only send personal data to third parties where necessary as part of contract execution, for example to the bank entrusted with processing payment.

No data is otherwise sent unless you have expressly agreed to this. Your data will not be disclosed to third parties without your express consent, for example for advertising purposes.

The basis for data processing is Article 6 Paragraph 1(b) GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

8.7 Application management/job exchange

We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of carrying out the application process. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits corresponding application documents to us electronically, for example by email or via a web form on the website. If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If we do not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically erased two (2) months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of ours prevent their erasure. Other legitimate interests in this context include, for example, the duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the German Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz [AGG]).

Legal basis for the processing of the data is Article 88 GDPR, § 26 I BDSG

 

  1. Newsletters

9.1 Marketing newsletter

You can subscribe to our newsletter via our website. The input screen determines which personal data are shared with us when subscribing to the newsletter.

We use our newsletter to regularly communicate our offers to our customers and business partners. You can, therefore, only receive our company’s newsletter if

  1. you have a valid email address and
  2. have registered for the newsletter.

 

For legal reasons, as part of the double opt-in procedure a confirmation email will be sent to the email address you provided when registering for the newsletter. This confirmation email is sent to check if you are the holder of the email address and have authorised the newsletter.

When you register for the newsletter we also save the IP address used by your IT system at the time of registration, which is issued by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) as well as the date and time of registration. We must collect this data to investigate any (possible) misuse of your email address at a later stage and it is therefore lawful for the purposes of our security.

The personal data collected during registration are used solely for sending our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter may receive information via email if this is required in order to administer the newsletter service for registration purposes, which may be the case if our newsletter is amended or technical circumstances change. Personal data collected for our newsletter service are not shared with third parties. You may terminate your subscription to our newsletter at any time. You can at any time withdraw your consent to the storage of the personal data you shared during registration. A link is provided in each newsletter to allow you to withdraw your consent. It is also possible to unsubscribe from our newsletter directly through the website or to contact us in another manner.

The legal basis for data processing for the purposes of sending a newsletter is article 6, paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR.

9.2 Newsletter tracking

Our newsletters contain what are known as tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in emails sent in HTML format to enable the recording and analysis of log files. This allows for a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. The embedded tracking pixel allows the company to determine if and when an email was opened by you and what links you accessed in the email.

 

We store and analyse the personal data collected via the tracking pixel contained in the newsletters in order to optimise the sending of our newsletters and to adapt the content of future newsletters to even better suit your interests. This personal data will not be disclosed to third parties. Data subjects are entitled to revoke the relevant declaration of consent granted separately and submitted via the double opt-in procedure at any time. Once consent has been revoked, we erase this personal data. Unsubscribing from the newsletter will automatically be interpreted as revocation.

This kind of analysis is carried out in particular in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interests in displaying personalised advertising, market research and/or the design of our website commensurate to market needs.

9.3 ActiveCampaign

Our email newsletters are sent via the technical service provider ActiveCampaign, 1 N Dearborn St 5th floor, Chicago, IL 60602, USA to whom we forward the data you provided when registering for the newsletter. This disclosure is made in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR and serves our legitimate interest in the use of an effective, secure and user-friendly newsletter system. Please note that your data is usually transferred to a ActiveCampaign server in the US and stored there.

ActiveCampaign uses this information to send and statistically analyse our newsletter on our behalf. For analysis purposes, the emails sent contain what are known as web beacons or tracking pixels, which are one-pixel image files stored on our website. This allows us to see whether a newsletter email has been opened and what links have been clicked. Technical information is also recorded (e.g. date and time of access, IP address, browser type and operating system). This data is exclusively collected on a pseudonymous basis and will not be linked to your other personal data. It is not possible to use the data collected to identify you. This data is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better tailor future newsletters to the interests of recipients.

If you wish to object to the analysis of data for statistical evaluation purposes, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter.

The consent given by you can be withdrawn at any time. You can also prevent the processing at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. You can also prevent the storage of cookies by setting your web browser accordingly. Also, disabling Java Script in your web browser or installing a Java Script Blocker (such as https://noscript.net or https://www.ghostery.com) may prevent you from storing and transferring personal information. We point out that through these measures may no longer all the features of our website are available.

Furthermore, ActiveCampaign may use this data itself in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR on the basis of its own legitimate interest in designing a service commensurate with market needs and optimising the service as well as for market research purposes in order to determine, for example, the countries from which newsletter recipients come. However, ActiveCampaign does not use our newsletter recipients’ data to address them directly, nor does it disclose their data to third parties.

To protect your data in the US, we have concluded a data processing agreement ("Data Processing Agreement") with ActiveCampaign based on the standard contractual clauses of the European Commission to enable the transfer of your personal data to ActiveCampaign.

If interested, you can view the Data Processing Agreement and ActiveCampaign’s privacy policy at the following link: https://www.activecampaign.com/legal.

 

  1. Our activities in social networks

To allow us to communicate with you on social networks and inform you about our services, we run our own pages on these social networks. If you visit one of our social media pages, we and the provider of the social media network are joint controllers (Art. 26 GDPR) regarding to the processing operations triggered thereby, which concern personal data.

We are not the original provider of these pages, but only use them within the scope of the options offered to us by the respective providers

We would therefore like to point out as a precautionary measure that your data may also be processed outside of the European Union or the European Economic Area. Use of these networks may therefore involve data protection risks for you since the protection of your rights may be difficult, e.g. your rights to information, erasure, objection, etc. Processing on social networks frequently takes place directly for advertising purposes or for the analysis of user behaviour by network providers, and we have no control over this. If the provider creates user profiles, cookies are often used or user behaviour may be assigned directly to your own member profile on the respective social network (if you are logged in).

The processing operations of personal data described are carried out in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interests and the legitimate interests of the respective provider in order to communicate with you in a timely manner or to inform you about our services. If you have to grant your consent to the respective providers to process your data as a user, the legal basis for this processing is Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR in conjunction with Article 7 GDPR.

Since we have no access to these providers’ databases, we would like to point out that you would be best placed to exercise your rights (e.g. to information, rectification, erasure, etc.) directly with the respective provider. More information on the processing of your data on social networks and your options for exercising your right to object or your right of revocation (opt out) is listed below for each of the social network providers we use:

  1. Social media plugins

11.1 Shariff solution

We offer the option of using "social media buttons" on our website. We rely on the "Shariff" solution during implementation in order to protect your data. This means that these buttons on the website are only integrated as a graphic that contains a link to the corresponding website of the button provider. By clicking the graphic, you will be redirected to the services of the respective provider. Only then will your data be sent to the respective providers. If you do not click the graphic, no exchange of data will take place between you and the providers of the social media buttons. Information about the collection and use of your data on social networks is available in the terms of use of the respective providers. More information about the Shariff solution can be found here: https://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/Shariff-Social-Media-Buttons-mit-Datenschutz-2467514.html (German only).

Social media buttons are used on the basis of Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1(f) GDPR. The promotional purpose behind this is deemed a legitimate interest as defined by the GDPR.

 

  1. Web analytics

12.1 Facebook Pixel (custom audience)

This website uses "Facebook Pixel" by Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA ("Facebook"). If explicit consent is given, it may be used to track the behaviour of users after they have seen or clicked on a Facebook ad. This process is used to analyse the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements for statistical and market research purposes and can help to optimise future advertising measures.

The data collected is anonymous for us and does not give us any information about the identity of the user. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook, which means that it is possible to connect the respective user profile. Furthermore, Facebook may use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with the Facebook Data Policy (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/). You can enable Facebook and its affiliates to operate ads on and off Facebook. A cookie may also be stored on your computer for these purposes. These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

Consent to the use of Facebook Pixel may only be given by users who are older than 13 years of age. If you are under the age stated above, please ask your parent or guardian for permission.

To deactivate the use of cookies on your IT system, you can adjust your browser’s settings so that cookies can no longer be stored on your IT system in future or so that cookies that have already been stored are erased. However, disabling all cookies may mean you may no longer have access to certain functions on our website. You may also disable the use of cookies by third parties such as Facebook on the Digital Advertising Alliance website below: https://www.aboutads.info/choices/

In addition, you can disable cookies for distance measurement and advertising purposes on the following websites:

  1. http://optout.networkadvertising.org/
  2. http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/

 

Please note that this setting will also be deleted if you delete your cookies.

12.2 Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited (https://www.google.com/about/) (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; hereinafter referred to as "Google"), on our website. As part of this, pseudonymised user profiles are created and cookies (see the section on "Cookies") are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website, such as your browser

  1. browser type/version
  2. operating system
  3. referrer URL (website previously visited), host
  4. name of the accessing computer (IP address) and
  5. time of server request,

 

is transmitted to a Google server in the US and stored there. This information is used to evaluate your use of this website, to compile reports on the website activities, and to perform further services linked to website and internet use for market research purposes and to tailor the design of this website. This information may also be sent to third parties if this is legally required or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Under no circumstances will your IP address be associated with any other data. IP addresses are anonymised so that it is not possible to assign them to individuals (known as IP masking).

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, we would point out that this may result in you not being able to use all the features of this website.

These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

You can also prevent the data generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) from being sent to and processed by Google by downloading and installing the available browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).

As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent Google Analytics from capturing data by clicking on the following link: Deactivate Google Analytics. This sets an opt-out cookie that prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid on this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you erase the cookies stored for this browser, you will need to reset the opt-out cookie.

Additional information on data protection with respect to Google Analytics is available on the Google Analytics website in the help section (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en).

12.3 Google Analytics Remarketing

We have integrated services by Google Remarketing on this website. Google Remarketing is a Google Ads feature that enables a company to display advertisements to internet users who have previously visited the company's website. Integrating Google Remarketing therefore allows a company to create user-based advertisements and consequently to display advertisements of interest to that particular internet user.

Google Remarketing services are operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

The purpose of Google Remarketing is to display advertisements that are relevant to your interests. Google Remarketing allows us to display advertisements that are tailored to the individual needs and interests of internet users through the Google advertising network or on other websites.

Google Remarketing places a cookie on your IT system. Setting cookies enables Google to recognise visitors to our website who subsequently visit websites that are also members of the Google advertising network. Every time you visit a website that has integrated Google Remarketing services, your browser automatically identifies itself to Google. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as your IP address or browsing behaviour, which Google uses, among other things, to display advertisements relevant to your interests.

Cookies are used to store personal information, such as the websites you visit. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including your IP address, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through this technical process to third parties.

As stated above, you can prevent cookies being placed by our website at any time by adjusting your web browser’s settings to permanently refuse cookies. Adjusting the browser’s settings in this way would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on your IT system. In addition, a cookie already placed by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time through a web browser or other software programs.

You also have the option to object to Google's interest-based advertising. To do this, you must visit www.google.com/settings/ads from each of the web browsers you use and adjust the settings there as desired.

These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

Additional information and Google's privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

12.4 Hotjar

  1. Advertising

13.1 Google Ads (formerly AdWords)

Our website uses the functions of Google Ads, which we use to advertise this website in Google-s search results as well as on third party websites. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"). To this end, Google places a cookie on your device’s browser, which automatically uses a pseudonymous cookie ID and facilitates interest-based advertising on the basis of the websites you have visited.

These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

No further processing will take place unless you have consented to Google linking your internet and app browsing history to your Google account and using information from your Google account to personalise ads you view online. In this case, if you are logged in to Google during your visit to our website, Google will use your information in conjunction with Google Analytics data to create and define target audience lists for cross-device remarketing. Google will temporarily link your personal data with Google Analytics data in order to form target groups.

Not accepting cookies may limit the functionality of our website.

More information and the privacy policy regarding advertising and Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/.

13.2 Google AdSense

We have integrated Google AdSense on this website. Google AdSense is an online service that enables the placement of advertisements on third-party websites. Google AdSense is based on an algorithm that selects the advertisements displayed on third-party websites according to the content of the third-party site in question. Google AdSense facilitates the targeting of internet users on the basis of their interests, which is implemented by generating individual user profiles.

The Google AdSense component is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

The purpose of the Google AdSense component is to display advertisements on our website. Google AdSense places a cookie on your IT system. The placement of this cookie enables Alphabet Inc. to analyse the usage of our website. Each time someone opens an individual page of this website, which is run by us and on which a Google AdSense component is integrated, the Google AdSense component in question will trigger the browser on your IT system to automatically send data to Alphabet Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA, for online marketing purposes and to charge commission. As part of this technical process, Alphabet Inc. receives information about personal data, such as your IP address, which, among other things, enables Alphabet Inc. to track the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently charge commission.

You can prevent cookies being placed by our website at any time by adjusting your web browser’s settings to permanently refuse cookies. Adjusting the browser-s settings in this way would also prevent Alphabet Inc. from placing a cookie on your IT system. In addition, a cookie already placed by Alphabet Inc. can be deleted at any time through a web browser or other software programs.

Google AdSense also uses tracking bugs. A tracking bug is a miniature graphic embedded in websites to enable the recording of log files and analytics for subsequent statistical analysis. The embedded tracking bug allows Alphabet Inc. to determine if and when a website was opened by your IT system and what links you clicked. Among other things, tracking bugs help analyse the flow of visitors to a website.

Through Google AdSense, personal data and information, which also includes your IP address and is necessary for the collection and billing of advertisements displayed, is sent to Alphabet Inc. in the United States of America. This personal data is stored and processed in the United States of America. Alphabet Inc. may disclose personal data collected through this technical process to third parties.

Google AdSense is explained in more detail at https://www.google.de/adsense/start/.

These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

13.3 Google Ads with conversion tracking

We have integrated Google Ads on this website. Google Ads is an internet advertising service that allows advertisers to run adverts in both Google and Google advertising network search engine results. Google Ads allows an advertiser to predefine keywords that will display an ad on Google's search engine results only when the search engine retrieves a keyword-related search result. On the Google Network, ads are distributed to relevant websites using an automated algorithm and according to predefined keywords.

Google Ads is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

The purpose of Google Ads is to promote our website by displaying interest-based advertising on third-party websites and in the search engine results of Google's search engine and by displaying third-party ads on our website.

If you arrive on our website via a Google advert, what is known as a conversion cookie will be stored on your IT system by Google. A conversion cookie expires after 30 days and is not used to identify you. Provided the cookie has not expired, the conversion cookie is used to trace whether certain sub-pages, such as the shopping cart of an online shop system, were accessed on our website. The conversion cookie tells us and Google whether any revenues was generated by a user who arrived on our website via an Ads ad, i.e. if they completed or cancelled a purchase.

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to provide visitor statistics for our website. We then use these visitor statistics to determine the total number of users who have been directed to us through Ads ads in order to determine the success or failure of each Ads ad and to optimise our Ads ads for the future. Neither our company nor any other Google Ads advertisers receive any information from Google that could identify you.

Conversion cookies are used to store personal information, such as the websites you visit. Each time someone visits our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection you are using, is sent to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through this technical process to third parties.

You can prevent cookies being placed by our website at any time by adjusting your web browser’s settings to permanently refuse cookies. Adjusting the browser’s settings in this way would also prevent Google from placing a conversion cookie on your IT system. In addition, a cookie already placed by Google Ads can be deleted at any time through a web browser or other software programs.

You also have the option to object to Google's interest-based advertising. To do this, you must visit www.google.com/settings/ads from each of the web browsers you use and adjust the settings there as desired.

These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

According to Google a DoubleClick cookie does not contain any personally identifiable information. However, a DoubleClick cookie may contain additional campaign identifiers. A campaign identifier is used to identify the campaigns with which you have already been in contact.

 

Each time someone opens an individual page of this website, which is run by us and on which a DoubleClick component is integrated, the DoubleClick component in question will trigger the browser on your IT system to send data to Google for online marketing purposes and for the purpose of charging commission. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of data that is subsequently used to charge commission. Among other things, Google can verify that you have clicked on a specific link on our website.

When using "Zoom", different types of data are processed. The scope of the data also depends on what information you provide before or when you participate in an "online meeting". The following personal data may be the subject of processing:

  • User information such as first name, last name, phone number (optional), email address (optional), password (if "single sign-on" is not used), profile picture (optional).
  • Meeting metadata such as topic, description (optional), participant IP addresses, device/hardware information.

In particular, this includes the purpose of providing, optimizing and securing the service. The participation information you provide will be used for the purpose of identification in the "online meeting". "Zoom" is a service provided by a provider based in the United States. Processing of the personal data also takes place in a third country (outside the EU and the EEA). As protective measures, we have concluded the EU standard contractual clauses (Art. 46 Para. 2 and 3 DS-GVO) and made our zoom configuration in such a way that only data centers in the EU or in other secure Third countries (e.g. by adequacy decision according to Art. 45 DS-GVO) are used. However, we cannot rule out the possibility of data being routed via Internet servers located outside the EU/EEA, which can be the case in particular if participants in "online meetings" are in a third country. However, the data is encrypted during transport over the Internet and thus protected against unauthorized access by third parties.

To the extent that "Zoom" processes personal data in connection with "Zoom's" legitimate business operations, "Zoom" is an independent data controller for that use and as such is responsible for compliance with applicable laws and obligations of a data controller.
