Overview of processing
The following overview summarizes the types of data processed and the purposes of their processing and refers to the data subjects.
Types of data processed:
Categories of data subjects:
purposes of processing
Relevant legal bases
Below you will find an overview of the legal bases of the GDPR on which we base the processing of personal data. Please note that in addition to the provisions of the GDPR, national data protection regulations of your or our country of residence or domicile may apply. If more specific legal bases are relevant in individual cases, we will inform you of them in the data protection declaration.
National data protection regulations in Germany: In addition to the data protection regulations of the General Data Protection Regulation, national data protection regulations apply in Germany. This includes in particular the law on the protection against misuse of personal data in data processing (Federal Data Protection Act – BDSG). In particular, the BDSG contains special regulations on the right to information, the right to erasure, the right to object, the processing of special categories of personal data, processing for other purposes and transmission, as well as automated decision-making in individual cases, including profiling. Furthermore, it regulates data processing for the purposes of the employment relationship (§ 26 BDSG), in particular with regard to the establishment, implementation or termination of employment relationships and the consent of employees. Furthermore, state data protection laws of the individual federal states may apply.
We take appropriate technical and organizational measures in accordance with the legal requirements, taking into account the state of the art, the implementation costs and the type, scope, circumstances and purposes of the processing as well as the different probabilities of occurrence and the extent of the threat to the rights and freedoms of natural persons to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk.
The measures include, in particular, securing the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling physical and electronic access to the data as well as access, input, disclosure, securing availability and their separation. Furthermore, we have set up procedures that ensure the exercise of data subject rights, the deletion of data and reactions to data threats. Furthermore, we already take the protection of personal data into account during the development or selection of hardware, software and processes in accordance with the principle of data protection, through technology design and through data protection-friendly default settings.
Shortening of the IP address: If IP addresses are processed by us or by the service providers and technologies used and the processing of a complete IP address is not necessary, the IP address will be shortened (also referred to as “IP masking”). The last two digits or the last part of the IP address after a point are removed or replaced by placeholders. The purpose of shortening the IP address is to prevent or make it much more difficult to identify a person based on their IP address.
SSL encryption (https): In order to protect your data transmitted via our online offer, we use SSL encryption. You can recognize such encrypted connections by the prefix https:// in the address line of your browser.
Transmission of personal data
As part of our processing of personal data, it may happen that the data is transmitted to other bodies, companies, legally independent organizational units or persons or that it is disclosed to them. The recipients of this data can include, for example, service providers commissioned with IT tasks or providers of services and content that are integrated into a website. In such a case, we observe the legal requirements and, in particular, conclude appropriate contracts or agreements with the recipients of your data that serve to protect your data.
Data processing in third countries
If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA)) or the processing within the framework of the use of third-party services or the disclosure or transmission of data to other persons, bodies or companies takes place, this is only done in accordance with the legal requirements.
Subject to express consent or contractually or legally required transmission, we only process or have the data processed in third countries with a recognized level of data protection, contractual obligation through so-called standard protection clauses of the EU Commission, if there are certifications or binding internal data protection regulations (Art. 44 to 49 GDPR, information page of the EU Commission: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection_de ).
Cookies are text files containing data from websites or domains visited and are stored by a browser on the user’s computer. A cookie is primarily used to store information about a user during or after their visit to an online offer. The stored information can include, for example, the language settings on a website, the login status, a shopping cart or the place where a video was viewed. The term cookies also includes other technologies that fulfill the same functions as cookies (e.g. when user information is stored using pseudonymous online identifiers, also referred to as “user IDs”).
The following cookie types and functions are distinguished:
Storage period: If we do not provide you with any explicit information on the storage period of permanent cookies (e.g. as part of a so-called cookie opt-in), please assume that the storage period can be up to two years.
We process the data of our contractual and business partners, e.g. customers and interested parties (collectively referred to as “contractual partners”) within the framework of contractual and comparable legal relationships and related measures and within the framework of communication with the contractual partners (or pre-contractual), e.g respond.
We process this data to fulfill our contractual obligations, to safeguard our rights and for the purposes of the administrative tasks associated with this information and the corporate organization. We only pass on the data of the contractual partners to third parties within the framework of the applicable law to the extent that this is necessary for the aforementioned purposes or to fulfill legal obligations or with the consent of the persons concerned (e.g. to telecommunications, transport and other auxiliary services involved as well as subcontractors, banks, tax and legal advisors, payment service providers or tax authorities). The contractual partners will be informed about other forms of processing, e.g. for marketing purposes, within the scope of this data protection declaration.
We inform the contracting parties which data is required for the aforementioned purposes before or during data collection, e.g. in online forms, by means of special markings (e.g. colours) or symbols (e.g. asterisks or similar), or personally.
We delete the data after statutory warranty and comparable obligations have expired, i.e. generally after 4 years, unless the data is stored in a customer account, e.g. for as long as it has to be kept for legal archiving reasons (e.g. for tax purposes usually 10 years). We delete data disclosed to us by the contractual partner as part of an order in accordance with the specifications of the order, generally after the end of the order.
Insofar as we use third-party providers or platforms to provide our services, the terms and conditions and data protection notices of the respective third-party providers or platforms apply in the relationship between the users and the providers.
Customer account: Contractual partners can create an account within our online offer (e.g. customer or user account, “customer account” for short). If it is necessary to register a customer account, contractual partners will be informed of this as well as of the information required for registration. Customer accounts are not public and cannot be indexed by search engines. As part of the registration and subsequent registrations and uses of the customer account, we store the IP addresses of the customers together with the access times in order to be able to prove the registration and to prevent any misuse of the customer account.
If customers have terminated their customer account, the data relating to the customer account will be deleted, subject to their retention being required for legal reasons. It is the customer’s responsibility to back up their data upon termination of the customer account.
Provision of the online offer and web hosting
In order to be able to provide our online offer securely and efficiently, we use the services of one or more web hosting providers from whose servers (or servers managed by them) the online offer can be accessed. For these purposes, we may use infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, as well as security services and technical maintenance services.
The data processed as part of the provision of the hosting offer may include all information relating to the users of our online offer that arises in the context of use and communication. This regularly includes the IP address, which is necessary in order to be able to deliver the content of online offers to browsers, and all entries made within our online offer or on websites.
E-mail dispatch and hosting: The web hosting services we use also include the dispatch, receipt and storage of e-mails. For these purposes, the addresses of the recipients and senders as well as other information regarding the e-mail dispatch (e.g. the providers involved) and the content of the respective e-mails are processed. The aforementioned data can also be processed for SPAM detection purposes. We ask you to note that e-mails are generally not sent in encrypted form on the Internet. As a rule, e-mails are encrypted during transport, but (unless a so-called end-to-end encryption method is used) not on the servers from which they are sent and received. Therefore, we cannot accept any responsibility for the transmission path of the e-mails between the sender and receipt on our server.
Collection of access data and log files: We ourselves (or our web hosting provider) collect data for every access to the server (so-called server log files). The address and name of the retrieved websites and files, date and time of retrieval, amounts of data transferred, notification of successful retrieval, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page) and, as a rule, IP Addresses and the requesting provider belong.
The server log files can be used on the one hand for security purposes, e.g. to avoid overloading the server (especially in the case of abusive attacks, so-called DDoS attacks) and on the other hand to ensure server utilization and stability.
Special notes on applications (apps)
We process the data of the users of our application insofar as this is necessary in order to be able to provide the application and its functionalities to the users, to monitor their security and to be able to develop them further. We can also contact users in compliance with legal requirements if communication is required for administration or use of the application. In addition, with regard to the processing of user data, we refer to the data protection information in this data protection declaration.
Legal bases: The processing of data, which is necessary for the provision of the functionalities of the application, serves to fulfill contractual obligations. This also applies if the provision of the functions requires user authorization (e.g. approval of device functions). If the processing of data is not necessary for the provision of the functionalities of the application, but serves the security of the application or our business interests (e.g. collection of data for the purpose of optimizing the application or security purposes), it is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests Interests. If users are expressly asked for their consent to the processing of their data, the data covered by the consent will be processed on the basis of the consent.
Commercial use: We process the data of the users of our application, registered users and any test users (hereinafter referred to as “users”) in order to be able to provide them with our contractual services and on the basis of legitimate interests to ensure the security of our application and to develop it further to be able to The required information is marked as such within the framework of the conclusion of the use, order, order or comparable contract and may include the information required for the provision of services and for any billing as well as contact information in order to be able to hold any consultations.
Storage of a pseudonymous identifier: We use a pseudonymous identifier so that we can provide the application and ensure its functionality. The identification is a mathematical value (ie no clear data such as names are used) that is assigned to a device and/or the application installed on it. This identifier is generated when this application is installed, is stored between the start of the application and its updates, and is deleted when users remove the application from the device.
Device authorizations for access to functions and data: The use of our application or its functionalities may require user authorizations to access certain functions of the devices used or to the data stored on the devices or accessible using the devices. By default, these permissions must be granted by the users and can be revoked at any time in the settings of the respective devices. The exact process for controlling app permissions may vary depending on the user’s device and software. If you need clarification, users can contact us. We would like to point out that the refusal or revocation of the respective authorizations can affect the functionality of our application.
Access to the camera and stored recordings: When using our application, image and/or video recordings (including audio recordings) of the user (and of other persons recorded by the recordings) are made by accessing the camera functions or stored recordings processed. Access to the camera functions or saved recordings requires authorization by the user, which can be revoked at any time. The processing of the image and/or video recordings only serves to provide the respective functionality of our application, according to its description to the users, or its typical and expected functionality.
Processing of location data: When using our application, the location data collected from the device used or otherwise entered by the user is processed. The use of location data requires user authorization, which can be revoked at any time. The use of the location data only serves to provide the respective functionality of our application, according to its description to the users, or its typical and expected functionality.
Location history and movement profiles: On the basis of the location data collected as part of the use of our application, a location history is created from which the geographic movements of the devices used over a period of time result (and can allow conclusions to be drawn about the movement profile of the user). The location history only serves to provide the respective functionality of our application, according to its description to the users, or its typical and expected functionality.
Obtaining applications from app stores
Our application is obtained via special online platforms operated by other service providers (so-called “app stores”). In this context, the data protection notices of the respective app stores apply in addition to our data protection notices. This applies in particular with regard to the methods used on the platforms for measuring reach and for interest-based marketing as well as any liability to pay.
Services and service providers used:
Registration, login and user account
Users can create a user account. As part of the registration, the users are informed of the required mandatory information and processed for the purpose of providing the user account on the basis of contractual fulfillment of obligations. The processed data includes in particular the login information (user name, password and an e-mail address).
When using our registration and login functions and when using the user account, we store the IP address and the time of the respective user action. The storage takes place on the basis of our legitimate interests as well as those of the users in protection against misuse and other unauthorized use. In principle, this data will not be passed on to third parties, unless it is necessary to pursue our claims or there is a legal obligation to do so.
Users can be informed by email about processes that are relevant to their user account, such as technical changes.
When contacting us (e.g. via contact form, e-mail, telephone or via social media), the details of the requesting person will be processed to the extent that this is necessary to answer the contact request and any requested measures.
The answering of contact inquiries within the framework of contractual or pre-contractual relationships takes place to fulfill our contractual obligations or to answer (pre)contractual inquiries and otherwise on the basis of the legitimate interests in answering the inquiries.
With the consent of the users, we can send the users so-called “push notifications”. These are messages that are displayed on the screens, end devices or in the browsers of the users, even if our online service is not currently being actively used.
In order to register for the push notifications, users must confirm the request from their browser or end device to receive the push notifications. This approval process is documented and saved. The storage is necessary in order to recognize whether users have consented to receiving the push notifications and to be able to prove their consent. For these purposes, a pseudonymous browser identifier (so-called “push token”) or the device ID of a terminal device is stored.
On the one hand, the push messages may be necessary for the fulfillment of contractual obligations (e.g. technical and organizational information relevant to the use of our online offer) and are otherwise, unless specifically mentioned below, sent on the basis of the user’s consent. Users can change the receipt of push messages at any time using the notification settings of their respective browsers or end devices.
Push notifications with promotional content: The push notifications we send may contain promotional information. The promotional push messages are processed on the basis of user consent. If the contents are specifically described as part of a consent to receive the advertising push messages, the descriptions are decisive for the consent of the user. Our newsletter also contains information about our services and us.
Location-dependent sending of push notifications: The push notifications we send can be displayed depending on the whereabouts of the user based on the location data transmitted by the end device used.
Analysis and success measurement: We evaluate push messages statistically and can thus recognize whether and when push messages were displayed and clicked on. This information is used to technically improve our push messages based on the technical data or the target groups and their retrieval behavior or the retrieval times. This analysis also includes determining whether the push messages are opened, when they are opened and whether users interact with their content or buttons. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual push message recipients. However, it is neither our aim nor, if used, that of the push message service provider to monitor individual users. Rather, the evaluations serve us to recognize the usage habits of our users and to adapt our push messages to them or to send different push messages according to the interests of our users.
The evaluation of the push messages and the measurement of success are based on the express consent of the user, which is given with the consent to receive the push messages. Users can object to the analysis and performance measurement by unsubscribing from the push messages. Unfortunately, a separate revocation of the analysis and performance measurement is not possible.
Newsletters and electronic notifications
We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications (hereinafter “newsletters”) only with the consent of the recipient or legal permission. If the contents of the newsletter are specifically described when registering for the newsletter, they are decisive for the consent of the user. Our newsletter also contains information about our services and us.
In order to register for our newsletters, it is generally sufficient if you enter your e-mail address. However, we may ask you to provide a name so that we can address you personally in the newsletter, or other information if this is necessary for the purposes of the newsletter.
Double opt-in procedure: Registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after registration you will receive an e-mail in which you will be asked to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with someone else’s e-mail address. The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with the legal requirements. This includes storing the time of registration and confirmation as well as the IP address. Changes to your data stored by the shipping service provider are also logged.
Deletion and restriction of processing: We can store the unsubscribed e-mail addresses for up to three years on the basis of our legitimate interests before we delete them in order to be able to prove a previously given consent. The processing of this data is limited to the purpose of a possible defense against claims. An individual request for deletion is possible at any time, provided that the previous existence of consent is confirmed at the same time. In the case of obligations to permanently observe contradictions, we reserve the right to store the e-mail address in a blacklist (so-called “blocklist”) solely for this purpose.
The registration process is logged on the basis of our legitimate interests for the purpose of proving that it was carried out properly. If we commission a service provider to send emails, this is done on the basis of our legitimate interests in an efficient and secure shipping system.
Notes on the legal basis: The newsletter is sent on the basis of the consent of the recipient or, if consent is not required, on the basis of our legitimate interests in direct marketing, if and to the extent that this is permitted by law, e.g. in the case of advertising for existing customers. If we commission a service provider to send emails, this is done on the basis of our legitimate interests. The registration process is recorded on the basis of our legitimate interests to demonstrate that it has been carried out in accordance with the law.
Contents: Information about our services, promotions, offers and topics related to motorcycles, touring and travel.
Measurement of open and click rates: The newsletters contain a so-called “web beacon”, ie a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from our server when the newsletter is opened or, if we use a shipping service provider, from their server. As part of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and the time of retrieval.
This information is used to technically improve our newsletter based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or the access times. This analysis also includes determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. This information is assigned to the individual newsletter recipients and stored in their profiles until they are deleted. The evaluations help us to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
The measurement of the opening rates and click rates as well as the storage of the measurement results in the user profiles and their further processing are based on the consent of the user.
Unfortunately, a separate revocation of the performance measurement is not possible. In this case, the entire newsletter subscription must be canceled or objected to. In this case, the stored profile information will be deleted.
Web analysis, monitoring and optimization
The web analysis (also referred to as “reach measurement”) serves to evaluate the flow of visitors to our online offer and can include behavior, interests or demographic information about the visitors, such as age or gender, as pseudonymous values. With the help of the range analysis, we can, for example, identify the time at which our online offer or its functions or content are used most frequently or invite users to reuse them. We can also understand which areas need optimization.
In addition to web analysis, we can also use test procedures, for example to test and optimize different versions of our online offering or its components.
For these purposes, so-called user profiles can be created and stored in a file (so-called “cookie”) or similar processes can be used for the same purpose. This information can include, for example, content viewed, websites visited and elements used there and technical information such as the browser used, the computer system used and information on usage times. If users have consented to the collection of their location data, this can also be processed depending on the provider.
The IP addresses of the users are also saved. However, we use an IP masking process (ie pseudonymization by shortening the IP address) to protect users. In general, no clear user data (e.g. e-mail addresses or names) are stored in the context of web analysis, A/B testing and optimization, but pseudonyms. This means that we and the providers of the software used do not know the actual identity of the users, but only the information stored in their profiles for the purposes of the respective process.
Services and service providers used:
Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA
We process personal data for online marketing purposes, which may include in particular the marketing of advertising space or the presentation of advertising and other content (collectively referred to as “content”) based on the potential interests of users and the measurement of their effectiveness.
For these purposes, so-called user profiles are created and stored in a file (so-called “cookie”) or similar processes are used, by means of which the information about the user relevant to the presentation of the aforementioned content is stored. This information can include, for example, content viewed, websites visited, online networks used, but also communication partners and technical information such as the browser used, the computer system used and information on usage times. If users have consented to the collection of their location data, this can also be processed.
The IP addresses of the users are also saved. However, we use available IP masking procedures (ie pseudonymization by shortening the IP address) to protect users. In general, no clear user data (such as e-mail addresses or names) are stored as part of the online marketing process, but pseudonyms. This means that we and the providers of the online marketing process do not know the actual identity of the users, only the information stored in their profiles.
The information in the profiles is usually stored in the cookies or by means of similar processes. These cookies can later generally also be read on other websites that use the same online marketing process and analyzed for the purpose of displaying content, as well as supplemented with further data and stored on the server of the online marketing process provider.
As an exception, plain data can be assigned to the profiles. This is the case, for example, if the users are members of a social network whose online marketing process we use and the network connects the user’s profile with the aforementioned information. We ask you to note that users can make additional agreements with the providers, e.g. by giving their consent during registration.
In principle, we only receive access to summarized information about the success of our advertisements. However, within the framework of so-called conversion measurements, we can check which of our online marketing processes have led to a so-called conversion, ie to a contract with us, for example. The conversion measurement is only used to analyze the success of our marketing measures.
Unless otherwise stated, please assume that cookies used will be stored for a period of two years.
Facebook pixel and target group formation (Custom Audiences): With the help of the Facebook pixel (or comparable functions, for the transmission of event data or contact information via interfaces in apps), Facebook is able to use the visitors of our online offer as a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called “Facebook Ads”). ) to determine. Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel so that the Facebook ads placed by us are only available to users on Facebook and within the services of the partners cooperating with Facebook (so-called “Audience Network”). https://www.facebook.com/audiencenetwork/ ) who have also shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interest in certain topics or products that can be seen from the websites visited) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called “Custom Audiences”). With the help of the Facebook pixel, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interests of users and are not annoying. With the help of the Facebook pixel, we can also understand the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called “conversion measurement”).
We are in partnership with Facebook Ireland Ltd. for the collection or receipt as part of a transmission (but not further processing) of “event data” that Facebook collects using the Facebook pixel and comparable functions (e.g. interfaces) that are carried out on our online offer or receives as part of a transmission for the following purposes, jointly responsible: a) display of content advertising information corresponding to the presumed interests of users; b) Delivery of commercial and transaction-related messages (e.g. addressing users via Facebook Messenger); c) Improving the delivery of ads and personalizing functions and content (e.g. improving the recognition of which content or advertising information presumably corresponds to the interests of users). We have concluded a special agreement with Facebook (“Supplement for those responsible”, https://www.facebook.com/legal/controller_addendum ), which regulates in particular which security measures Facebook must observe ( https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/data_security_terms) and in which Facebook has agreed to fulfill the rights of the data subject (ie users can, for example, send information or requests for deletion directly to Facebook). Note: If Facebook provides us with measurements, analyzes and reports (which are aggregated, i.e. do not contain any information on individual users and are anonymous to us), then this processing does not take place within the framework of joint responsibility, but on the basis of an order processing contract (“Data Processing Terms”). , https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/dataprocessing ), the “Data Security Terms” ( https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/data_security_terms ) and with regard to processing in the USA on the basis of Standard contractual clauses (“Facebook-EU data transfer addendum, https://www.facebook.com/legal/EU_data_transfer_addendum ). The rights of users (in particular to information, deletion, objection and complaints to the competent supervisory authority) are not affected by the agreements with Facebook restricted.
Services and service providers used:
Presence in social networks (social media)
We maintain online presences within social networks and process user data in this context in order to communicate with the users active there or to offer information about us.
We would like to point out that user data can be processed outside of the European Union. This can result in risks for the user because, for example, the enforcement of the user’s rights could be made more difficult.
Furthermore, user data is usually processed within social networks for market research and advertising purposes. For example, user profiles can be created on the basis of usage behavior and the resulting interests of users. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the networks that presumably correspond to the interests of the user. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the users’ computers, in which the usage behavior and the interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, data can also be stored in the usage profiles independently of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them).
For a detailed description of the respective forms of processing and the possibility of objection (opt-out), we refer to the data protection declarations and information provided by the operators of the respective networks.
Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of data subject rights, we would like to point out that these can be asserted most effectively with the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can take appropriate measures and provide information directly. If you still need help, you can contact us.
Facebook: We are in partnership with Facebook Ireland Ltd. responsible for the collection (but not further processing) of data from visitors to our Facebook page (so-called “fan page”). This data includes information about the types of content users view or interact with, or the actions they take (see “Things Done and Provided by You and Others” in the Facebook Data Policy: https://www.facebook.com/policy), as well as information about the devices used by the users (e.g. B. IP addresses, operating system, browser type, language settings, cookie data; see under “Device information” in the Facebook data policy statement: https://www.facebook.com/policy). As explained in the Facebook Data Policy under “How do we use this information?”, Facebook also collects and uses information to provide analytics services called “Page Insights” to site operators so that they can gain insights into how people are using their Pages and interact with the content associated with them. We have entered into a special agreement with Facebook (“Page Insights Information”, https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum), in which it is regulated in particular which security measures Facebook must observe and in which Facebook has declared its willingness to fulfill the rights of the data subject (ie users can, for example, send information or requests for deletion directly to Facebook). The rights of users (in particular to information, deletion, objection and complaints to the competent supervisory authority) are not restricted by the agreements with Facebook. For more information, see “Page Insights Information” (https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/information_about_page_insights_data ).
Services and service providers used:
Plugins and embedded functions and content
We integrate functional and content elements into our online offer that are obtained from the servers of their respective providers (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”). This can be, for example, graphics, videos or city maps (hereinafter uniformly referred to as “content”).
The integration always requires that the third-party providers of this content process the IP address of the user, since without the IP address they could not send the content to their browser. The IP address is therefore required for the display of this content or functions. We endeavor to only use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. Third-party providers can also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known 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 can also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and contain, among other things, technical information about the browser and the operating system, websites to be referred to, the time of the visit and other information on the use of our online offer and can also be linked to such information from other sources.
Services and service providers used:
Management, organization and support tools
We use services, platforms and software from other providers (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) for the purposes of organisation, administration, planning and the provision of our services. When selecting third-party providers and their services, we observe the legal requirements.
In this context, personal data can be processed and stored on the servers of third-party providers. Various data may be affected by this, which we process in accordance with this data protection declaration. This data can include, in particular, master data and contact details of users, data on transactions, contracts, other processes and their content.
If users are referred to the third-party providers or their software or platforms as part of communication, business or other relationships with us, the third-party providers can process usage data and metadata for security purposes, for service optimization or for marketing purposes. We therefore ask you to observe the data protection notices of the respective third-party providers.
deletion of data
The data processed by us will be deleted in accordance with the legal requirements as soon as your consent to processing is revoked or other permissions are no longer applicable (e.g. if the purpose of processing this data no longer applies or it is not required for the purpose).
If the data is not deleted because it is required for other, legally permissible purposes, its processing will be limited to these purposes. This means that the data will be blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be stored for commercial or tax reasons or whose storage is necessary to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person.
As part of our data protection information, we can provide users with further information on the deletion and storage of data that applies specifically to the respective processing.
We ask you to inform yourself regularly about the content of our data protection declaration. We will adapt the data protection declaration as soon as the changes in the data processing we carry out make this necessary. We will inform you as soon as the changes require your cooperation (e.g. consent) or other individual notification.
If we provide addresses and contact information of companies and organizations in this data protection declaration, please note that the addresses can change over time and ask you to check the information before contacting us.
Rights of data subjects
