4. Data security

In order to develop the measures required by Article 32 DGPR and to achieve a level of protection which is reasonable in relation to the risk, we have implemented an information security standard at our company.

II. Data processing broken down

In this section of the data protection declaration, we will inform you in detail of the processing of personal data within the framework of our services. For better understanding, we will break this information down according to specified functions of our services. During normal use of the services, various functions and by extension various processing may follow each other or take place at the same time.

1.  General information concerning data processing

Applies to all processing stated below, unless otherwise provided for:

a.    No provision obligation

There is neither a contractual nor a legal obligation to provide the personal data. You are not obliged to provide data.

b.    Consequences of failure to provide data

In case of necessary data (data which is identified as mandatory information), failure to provide the data will mean that the service concerned cannot be provided. Otherwise, failure to provide the data means that our services cannot be provided in the same form and to the same level of quality.

c.     Consent

In various cases, you have the option of issuing us with your consent to further processing in connection with the processing set out below (if applicable for part of the data). In such a case, we will inform you separately in connection with the submission of the respective declaration of consent of all procedures and extension of the consent, and of the purposes we pursue in connection with this processing.

d.    Forwarding on of personal data to third countries

Should we transfer data to third countries, ie countries outside of the European Union, the transfer takes place exclusively in compliance with the lawfulness requirements set by legislation.
The lawfulness requirements are set out in Articles 44-49 GDPR.

e.    Hosting by external service providers 

In individual cases, our data processing takes place by using so-called hosting providers, which provide us with storage space and processing capacities in their computer centres and also process personal data on our behalf in accordance with our instructions. These service providers process data either exclusively in the EU, or we have guaranteed a reasonable level of data protection with the assistance of the EU standard data protection clauses.

f.      Transfer to state authorities

We transfer personal data to state authorities (including criminal prosecution authorities), should this be necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject (legal basis: Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter c) GDPR) or should this be necessary in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims (legal basis: Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f) GDPR).

g.     Duration of the saving

We only save your data for as long as we require it for the respective purposes of the processing. Should the data no longer be necessary in order to fulfil contractual or legal obligations, it is deleted regularly, unless temporary storage of it continues to be necessary. Reasons for this can be as follows:

  • Fulfilment of retention obligations under commercial law and tax laws
  • Gaining of evidence for legal disputes within the framework of the statutory limitation period regulations

It is also possible for us to continue to save your data if you have issued your express consent to this.

4.  Tracking

Below, we will describe how your personal data is processed with the assistance of tracking technologies in order to analyse and optimise our services, as well as for advertising purposes.

The description of the tracking process also includes information as to how you can prevent or object to the data processing. Please bear in mind that the so-called "opt out" ie the rejection of the processing, is generally saved via cookies. Should you use our services via a new end device or in a different browser or should you have deleted the cookies which were set by this browser, you need to declare the rejection again.

The tracking procedure described only processes personal data in the form of pseudonyms No connection to a concrete, identifiable natural person, ie combination of the data with information concerning the holder of the pseudonym takes place.
a.  Tracking in order to analyse and optimise our services and their use, as well as to measure the success of advertising campaigns and to optimise the display of adverts

(1)            Purposes of the processing 

The analysis of the user behaviour by means of tracking helps us check the effectiveness of our services, to optimise them and tailor them to the needs of the users, as well as to correct errors. Also, it serves the purpose of creating numerical values of the use of our services (breadth, use intensity, surfing behaviour of the users) in statistical terms, on the basis of unified standard procedures, and therefore allow values which are comparable across the market to be received.

The tracking in order to measure the success of advertising campaigns serves the purpose of optimising our adverts for the future and also to enable advertisers to optimise their adverts accordingly. The tracking in order to optimise the display of advertising has the purpose of displaying adverts to users which are tailored to their interests, which increases the success of the advertising and by means of this, the revenues generated from it. 

(2)            Legal basis of the processing

In case of services which enable the behaviour of affected persons on the Internet to be traced and when creating user profiles, informed consent under the GDPR is required.

II. Glossary

Order processor:
 A natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the responsible body.

Browser: Computer program for displaying websites (for example Chrome, Firefox, Safari).

Cookies: In in connection with the World Wide Web, a cookie is a small text file which is stored locally on the computer of the user when visiting a website. This file saves data concerning the behaviour of the user. Should the browser be opened and the relevant website be accessed again, the cookie is used and informs the web server of the surfing behaviour of the user with the assistance of the data which has been saved.
In this case, cookies are not biscuits, rather information which a website saves locally on the computer of the website visitor in a small text file. This can concern settings which have already been carried out by the user on a site, but can also include information which the website has collected independently from the user itself. Later, these text files which are stored locally can be read once again by the same web server which created them. Most browsers accept cookies automatically. You can administer cookies with the help of the browser functions (usually under "options" or "settings"). By means of these, the saving of cookies can be de-activated, made dependent on your consent or otherwise restricted. You can also delete cookies at any time.

Third countries: Country which is not bound by the legal requirements of the GDPR (country outside of the EEA).

Personal data: All information which relates to an identified or identifiable natural person. A natural person is considered identifiable if he or she can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by means of assignment to a label, such as a name, number, location data, online profile or one or more special characteristics which express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychiatric, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person.

Pixel: Pixels are also called number pixels, tracking pixels, web beacons or web bugs. These are small, invisible graphics in HTML emails or on websites. Should a document be opened, this small picture is then loaded by a server on the Internet, whereby the downloading is registered there. By means of this, the operator of the server can see if or when an email was opened or a website was visited. This function is usually carried out by accessing a small program (JavaScript). By means of this, certain types of information on your computer system can be recognised and passed on, such as the content of cookies, time and date of the site access, as well as a description of the site which contains the number pixel.

Profiling: Any type of automated processing of personal data which means that this personal data is used in order to evaluate certain personal aspects which relate to a natural person, in particular in order to analyse or forecast the work performance, economic position, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, place of residence or change of location of this natural person.

Services: Our services to which this data protection declaration applies (see area of applicability).

Tracking: The collection and evaluation of data in relation to the behaviour of visitors to our services.
Tracking technology: Tracking can take place both via activity protocols (logfiles) saved on our web servers and by means of data gathering from your end device via pixels, cookies and similar tracking technology.

Processing: Any process or succession of processes carried out in connection with personal data with or without the assistance of automated procedures, such as the gathering, recording, organisation, filing, saving, adjustment or alteration, reading, retrieval, use, disclosure by transfer, distribution or other form of provision, comparison or connection, restriction, deletion or destruction.
