Data processing in general

 

We process our users’ personal data only to the extent necessary to provide a functioning website and its contents. The processing of our users’ personal data is based on the following permission standards:

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU Data Protection Ordinance (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis.

In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for processing.

The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

 

 

provision of the website and creation of log files

 

Every time you visit our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.

The following data is collected:

The Internet Service Provider of the User
The IP address of the user
The operating system of the user
information about the type of browser and the version used
date and time of access –     Date and time of access
websites from which the user’s system reaches our website
websites that are accessed by the user’s system via our website

The data is also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user’s computer. For this the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.

The data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data serves us to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

Our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO also lies in these purposes.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended and for the storage of the data in log files after seven days at the latest. Further storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

The collection of data to provide the website and the storage of data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

 

 

use of cookies

 

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in the Internet browser or by the Internet browser on the user’s computer system. Cookies make it possible, in particular, to determine the frequency of use and number of users of the pages, to analyse the behaviour of site use, but also to make the offer more customer-friendly. Cookies remain stored at the end of a browser session and can be retrieved the next time you visit the site.

Cookies, which are necessary to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions desired by you (e.g. language settings), are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for technically error-free and optimized provision of his services. As far as other cookies (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your surfing behaviour) are stored, these will be treated separately in this data protection declaration. If you do not want cookies to be stored on your computer, you will be asked to deactivate the corresponding option in the system settings of your 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.

Cookies are stored on the user’s computer and transmitted to our site. Therefore, you as a user also have full control over the use of cookies. You can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies by changing the settings in your Internet browser. Cookies that have already been saved can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may no longer be possible to use all functions of the website in full.

 

 

Newsletter

 

You can subscribe to a free newsletter on our website. When you register for the newsletter, the information you entered in the input mask, i.e. your first and last name, the title, your company and the e-mail address, is transmitted to us.

In addition, the IP address of the calling computer and the date and time of registration are stored.

In the course of the registration process, your consent is obtained for the processing of the data and reference is made to this data protection declaration.

We use a service provider for dispatch, whom we have obliged to comply with our instructions by means of a contract for order data processing. Your data will not be passed on to third parties. The data will be used exclusively for sending the newsletter.

The legal basis for the processing of the data after registration for the newsletter by the user is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

The collection of the user’s e-mail address serves to send the newsletter. The collection of other personal data as part of the registration process serves to prevent misuse of the services or the e-mail address used.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. The user’s e-mail address will therefore be stored for as long as the subscription to the newsletter is active. The other personal data collected during the registration process will generally be deleted after a period of seven days.

The subscription to the newsletter can be cancelled by the user concerned at any time. For this purpose there is a corresponding link in every newsletter.

 

 

 

Google Analytics

 

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thereby offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

Google Analytics cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Pixlip GmbH has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising. A connection with other data processed by Google does not arise.

You can prevent cookies from being stored in your browser settings. You can also prevent Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. Otherwise your data will be regularly deleted or made anonymous after 14 months.

Alternatively to the browser add-on or within browsers on mobile devices, you can also click the following link to prevent future collection by Google Analytics within this website (the opt-out works only in this browser and only for this domain). An opt-out cookie is stored on your device. If you delete your cookies in this browser, you must click this link again:

Further information on data use by Google, setting and objection options, can be found in Google’s data protection policy (<https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads) and in the settings for the display of advertisements by Google (https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated).

 

 

Google Maps

 

 

We use the component “Google Maps” from Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter “Google”.

Each time you access the Google Maps component, Google sets a cookie to process user settings and data when you view the page that includes the Google Maps component. As a rule, this cookie is not deleted when you close your browser, but expires after a certain time, unless you delete it manually beforehand.

If you do not agree to this processing of your data, it is possible to deactivate the “Google Maps” service and thus prevent the transfer of data to Google. To do this, you must deactivate the Java script function in your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you will not be able to use “Google Maps” or only to a limited extent.
The use of “Google Maps” and the information obtained via “Google Maps” is subject to the Google Terms of Use http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/terms/regional.html as well as the additional Terms and Conditions for “Google Maps” https://www.google.com/intl/de_en/help/terms_maps.html.

 
 

Facebook Website Customer Audiences

 

We use the “Website Custom Audiences” pixel, as well as the “Conversion-Pixel” or visitor action pixel of the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. So-called tracking pixels are integrated on our pages. When you visit our pages, the pixel-code establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook receives information from your browser, among other things, that our page has been called up by your terminal device. If you are a Facebook user, Facebook can associate your visit to our pages with your account. We would like to point out that, as the provider of the pages, we have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted or of their use by Facebook. We can only choose which segments of Facebook users (such as age, interests) our advertising should be displayed. We use one of two Custom Audiences working methods in which no data records, especially no e-mail addresses of our users – neither encrypted nor unencrypted – are transmitted to Facebook. By calling up the conversion pixel from your browser, Facebook can then see whether a Facebook ad was successful, e.g. whether it led to an online purchase. We only receive statistical data from Facebook for this purpose without reference to a specific person. This enables us to measure the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes. In particular, if you are logged on to Facebook, we refer you to their privacy information https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

If you wish to object to the use of Facebook Website Custom Audiences, you can do so at https://www.facebook.com/ads/website_custom_audiences/ .

Alternatively, you can also click the following link to prevent Facebook Pixel capturing within this site in the future (the opt out works only in this browser and only for this domain). An opt-out cookie is stored on your device. If you delete your cookies in this browser, you must click this link again:

Use of Vimeo plugins

 

For the integration of videos we use the provider Vimeo. Vimeo is operated by Vimeo, LLC, headquartered at 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011.

We use plugins from the provider Vimeo. When you access the websites of our website provided with such a plugin, a connection to the Vimeo servers is established and the plugin is displayed. This will transmit to the Vimeo server which of our web pages you have visited. If you are logged in as Member at Vimeo (which is of course not necessary for viewing our video), Vimeo assigns this information to your personal user account. When using the plugin, e.g. clicking the start button of a video, this information is also assigned to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your Vimeo account and deleting the corresponding Vimeo cookies before using our website.

For more information about Vimeo’s data processing and privacy practices, please visit https://vimeo.com/privacy.

Use of LinkedIn Insight

 

We use the LinkedIn Insight Conversion Tool of LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The tool enables us to learn information about the use of our website and to present interest-based advertising on other websites. For this purpose, your browser receives a cookie with a validity of 120 days, which allows LinkedIn to recognize you when you visit a website. LinkedIN uses this information to create anonymous reports on ad activity and information about how you interact with our website.

You can deactivate the LinkedIN Insight Conversion Tool and interest-based advertising by opting out here.

Your rights

etc;

If personal data are processed by you, you are affected within the meaning of the DSGVO and you have the following rights vis-à-vis the person responsible:

1. Right to information

You can ask the person in charge to confirm whether personal data concerning you will be processed by us.

If such processing has taken place, you can request the following information from the person responsible:

(1) the purposes for which the personal data are processed;

(2) the categories of personal data being processed;

(3) the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been or are still being disclosed;

(4) the planned duration of the storage of the personal data concerning you or, if specific information on this is not possible, criteria for determining the storage period;

(5) the existence of a right to rectification or deletion of personal data concerning you, a right to limitation of processing by the controller or a right to object to such processing;

(6) the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;

(7) any available information on the origin of the data if the personal data are not collected from the data subject;

(8) the existence of automated decision-making including profiling in accordance with Art. 22 para. 1 and 4 DSGVO and – at least in these cases – meaningful information on the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject.

You have the right to request information as to whether the personal data concerning you is transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you may request to be informed of the appropriate guarantees pursuant to Art. 46 DSGVO in connection with the transmission.

2. The right to correction

You have a right of rectification and/or completion vis-à-vis the data controller if the personal data processed concerning you are incorrect or incomplete. The person responsible shall make the correction without delay.

3. Right to limitation of processing

Under the following conditions, you may request that the processing of personal data concerning you be restricted:

(1) if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period that enables the data controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;

(2) the processing is unlawful and you refuse to delete the personal data and instead request that the use of the personal data be restricted;

(3) the data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you do need them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or

(4) if you have filed an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO and it has not yet been determined whether the legitimate reasons of the person responsible outweigh your reasons.

If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data may only be processed – apart from being stored – with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending rights or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on grounds of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State.

If the processing restriction has been restricted according to the above conditions, you will be informed by the person responsible before the restriction is lifted.

4. Right to cancellation

a) Duty to delete

You may request the data controller to delete the personal data relating to you without delay and the controller is obliged to delete this data without delay if one of the following reasons applies:

(1) The personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.

(2) You revoke your consent, on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DSGVO, and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

(3) You file an objection against the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or you file an objection against the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 2 DSGVO.

(4) The personal data concerning you have been processed unlawfully.

(5) The deletion of personal data relating to you is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the data controller is subject.

(6) The personal data concerning you were collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Art. 8 para. 1 DSGVO.

b) Information to third parties

If the data controller has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged to delete it pursuant to Art. 17 para. 1 DSGVO, he shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform data processors who process the personal data that you as the data subject have requested the deletion of all links to this personal data or of copies or replications of this personal data.

c) Exceptions

The right to cancellation does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary

(1) to exercise freedom of expression and information;

(2) for the performance of a legal obligation required for processing under the law of the Union or of the Member States to which the controller is subject or for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the controller;

(3) for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to Art. 9 para. 2 lit. h and i and Art. 9 para. 3 DSGVO;

(4) for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 para. 1 DSGVO, insofar as the law referred to under a) is likely to make it impossible or seriously impair the attainment of the objectives of such processing, or

(5) to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

5. Right to information

If you have exercised your right to have the data controller correct, delete or limit the processing, he/she is obliged to inform all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of this correction or deletion of the data or restriction on processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

The person responsible shall have the right to be informed of such recipients.

6. Right to data transferability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the person responsible in a structured, common and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to pass this data on to another person in charge without obstruction by the person in charge to whom the personal data was provided, provided that

(1) processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DSGVO or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO and

(2) processing is carried out by means of automated methods.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to request that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly from one data controller to another data controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.

The right to transferability shall not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the controller.

7. Right of objection

You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you under Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DSBER; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The data controller no longer processes the personal data concerning you, unless he can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing, which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If the personal data concerning you are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of the personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing.

If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.

You have the possibility to exercise your right of objection in connection with the use of Information Society services by means of automated procedures using technical specifications, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.

8. Right to revoke the data protection declaration of consent

You have the right to revoke your data protection declaration of consent at any time. The revocation of consent shall not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.

9. Right of appeal to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State where you reside, work or suspect of infringement, if you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you is contrary to the DSGVO.

The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 DSGVO.
