Cookies and right to object in direct mail
“Cookies” are small files that are stored on users’ computers. Different information can be stored within the cookies. A cookie is primarily used to store the information about a user (or the device on which the cookie is stored) during or after his visit to an online offer. Temporary cookies, or “session cookies” or “transient cookies”, are cookies that are deleted after a user leaves an online service and closes his browser. In such a cookie, e.g. the contents of a shopping cart in an online shop or a login status are saved. The term “permanent” or “persistent” refers to cookies that remain stored even after the browser has been closed. Thus, e.g. the login status will be saved if users visit it after several days. Likewise, in such a cookie the interests of the users can be stored, which are used for range measurement or marketing purposes. A “third-party cookie” refers to cookies that are offered by providers other than the person who manages the online offer (otherwise, if it is only their cookies, this is called “first-party cookies”).
If users do not want cookies stored on their computer, they will be asked to disable the option in their browser’s system settings. Saved cookies can be deleted in the system settings of the browser. The exclusion of cookies can lead to functional restrictions of this online offer.
Deletion of data
With the following information I inform you about the contents of my newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedures as well as your right of objection. By subscribing to my newsletter, you agree to the receipt and the procedures described.
Content of the newsletter: I send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with information related to he online offer (hereinafter “newsletter”) only with the consent of the recipient or a legal permission. Insofar as the contents of a newsletter are concretely described, they are authoritative for the consent of the users. Incidentally my newsletter contains information about me.
Double opt-in and logging: Registration for my newsletter is done in a so-called double-opt-in procedure. After registration, you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with external e-mail addresses. The registration for the newsletter will be logged in order to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the login and the confirmation time, as well as the IP address. Likewise, changes to your data stored with the shipping service provider will be logged.
Credentials: To subscribe to the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide your e-mail address. Optionally, I ask you to give a name in the newsletter for personal address.
The dispatch of the newsletter and the associated performance measurement are based on a consent of the recipients according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a, Art. 7 GDPR or if a consent is not required, based on my legitimate interests according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
The logging of the registration process is based on my legitimate interests in accordance with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. My interest lies in the use of a user-friendly and secure newsletter system, which serves both my personal interests and the expectations of the users and also allows me to prove your consent.
Termination / Revocation – You may terminate the receipt of my newsletter at any time, ie. revoke your consent. A link to cancel the newsletter can be found at the end of each newsletter. I may save the submitted email addresses for up to three years based on my legitimate interests before I delete them to provide prior consent. The processing of this data is limited to the purpose of a possible defense against claims. An individual request for cancellation is possible at any time, provided that at the same time the former existence of a consent is confirmed.
Newsletter – Mailchimp
The shipping service provider may use the data of the recipients in pseudonymous form without assignment to a user to optimize or improve their own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of shipping and the presentation of newsletters or for statistical purposes. However, the shipping service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to address them themselves or to pass on the data to third parties.
Newsletter – Success Measurement
The newsletters contain a so-called “web-beacon”, i. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the server when opening the newsletter from my server, or if I use a shipping service provider. This call will initially collect technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval.
This information is used to improve the technical performance of services based on their specifications or audience and their reading habits, based on their locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times. Statistical surveys also include determining if the newsletters will be opened, when they will be opened and which links will be clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither my goal nor, if used, that of the shipping service provider to observe individual users. The evaluations serve me much more to recognize the reading habits of my users and to adapt my content to them or to send different content according to the interests of my users.
A separate revocation of the performance measurement is unfortunately not possible, in this case, the entire newsletter subscription must be terminated.
Hosting and e-mailing
The hosting services I use are designed to provide the following services: infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage and database services, e-mailing, security and technical maintenance services I use to operate this online service.
Here I, or my hosting provider, process inventory data, contact data, content data, contract data, usage data, meta and communication data of interested parties and visitors to this online offer on the basis of my legitimate interests in an efficient and secure provision of this online offer according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR in combination with Art. 28 GDPR (conclusion of contract processing contract).
Collection of access data and log files
I or my hosting provider collect on the basis of my legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR data about every access to the server on which this service is located (so-called server log files). The access data includes name of the retrieved web page, file, date and time of retrieval, amount of data transferred, message about successful retrieval, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.
Logfile information is stored for security purposes (for example, to investigate abusive or fraudulent activities) for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. Data whose further retention is required for evidential purposes shall be exempted from the cancellation until final clarification of the incident.
Google will use this information on my behalf to evaluate the use of my online offer by users, to compile reports on the activities within this online offer and to provide me with further services related to the use of this online offer and the internet usage. In doing so, pseudonymous usage profiles of the users can be created from the processed data.
I only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization. This means that the IP address of the users will be 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 sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there.
The IP address submitted by the user’s browser will not be merged with other data provided by Google. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; Users may also prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the online offer as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
The personal data of users will be deleted or anonymized after 14 months.
Online presence in social media
I maintain online presence within social networks and platforms in order to communicate with active users of these platforms. When calling the respective networks and platforms, the terms and conditions and the data processing guidelines apply to their respective operators.
Integration of third-party services and content
Within my online offer I rely on my legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and operation of my online offer in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) content or service offers from third-party providers to their content and services, such as include videos or fonts (collectively referred to as “content”).
This always presupposes that the third-party providers of this content perceive the IP address of the users, since they could not send the content to their browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. I endeavor to use only content whose respective providers use the IP address solely for the delivery of the content. Third parties may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also referred to as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. The “pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and may include, but is not limited to, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring web pages, visit time, and other information regarding the use of my online offer.
Use of Facebook social plugins
Based on my legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of my online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) f GDPR) I use social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network facebook.com, which operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). The plugins can represent interaction elements or content (eg videos, graphics or text contributions) and can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on blue tile, the terms “Like”, “Like” 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 invokes a feature of this online offering that includes such a plugin, their device establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to the device of the user and incorporated by him into the online offer. In the process, user profiles can be created from the processed data. Therefore, I have no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and informs users accordingly to our 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 in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example, press the Like button or leave a comment, the 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 find out and save their IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymous IP address is stored in Germany.
If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him via this online offer and link it to his member data stored on Facebook, he must log out of Facebook and delete his cookies before using my online offer. Other settings and inconsistencies regarding the use of data for promotional purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https: //www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads or via the US page http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU page http: / /www.youronlinechoices.com/. The settings are platform independent, i. they are adopted for all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.
