This data protection declaration is intended to inform the users of this website in accordance with the Federal Data Protection Act and the Telemedia Act about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the website operator Emarticon GmbH (Lucile-Grahn-Str. 30, D-81675 Munich, Germany, Tel. + 49 (0) 89 – 8563 8144, email@example.com).
The website operator takes your data protection very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with legal regulations.
Keep in mind that data transmission on the Internet can always be subject to security gaps. Full protection against access by third parties is not feasible.
The website operator or site provider collects data about access to the site and saves it as "server log files". The following data is logged in this way:
- Visited site
- Time of access
- Amount of data sent in bytes
- Source/reference from which you came to the page
- Browser used
- Operating system used
- IP address used
The data collected is only used for statistical evaluations and to improve the website. However, the website operator reserves the right to subsequently check the server log files if there are concrete indications of illegal use.
Handling of personal data
The website operator only collects, uses and passes on your personal data if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of data.
Personal data is all information that is used to identify your person and which can be traced back to you - for example your name, email address and telephone number. But data about the company, the name of your website, or which websites someone viewed are also personal data. Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by the provider if this is permitted by law or if the users consent to the data collection.
Handling contact information
If you contact the website operator through the contact options offered, your details will be saved so that they can be used to process and answer your request. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.
Dealing with comments and contributions
If you leave a contribution or comment on this website, your IP address will be saved. This is for the security of the website operator: if your text violates the law, he wants to be able to trace your identity
Integration of third-party services and content
It may happen that content from third parties, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated within this online offer. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") perceive the IP address of the users. Because without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required for the display of this content. We endeavor to only use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. However, we have no influence if the third-party providers save the IP address, for example for statistical purposes. As far as this is known to us, we inform the users about it.
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. To deactivate Google Analytics, Google provides a browser plug-in at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
The information collected by the cookie about the use of our website (including your IP address) is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been expanded to include the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" in order to ensure that IP addresses are recorded anonymously (so-called IP masking).
If anonymization is active, Google shortens IP addresses within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area, which means that no conclusions can be drawn about your identity. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google complies with the data protection provisions of the "Privacy Shield" agreement and is registered with the "Privacy Shield" program of the US Department of Commerce and uses the information collected to evaluate the use of our websites, to prepare reports for us regarding this and to provide other related services to us to provide. You can find out more at http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html.
Our website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your end device with the help of the browser. They do no harm.
If you do not want this, you can set up your browser so that it informs you about the setting of cookies and you only allow this in individual cases.
If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of our website may be restricted.
With the newsletter we inform you about us and our offers. If you would like to receive the newsletter, we need a valid email address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided or that the owner agrees to receive the newsletter. This data will only be used to send the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties. When you register for the newsletter, we save your IP address and the date of registration. This storage serves solely as proof in the event that a third party misuses an email address and registers to receive the newsletter without the knowledge of the authorized party. You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time. The revocation can be made via a link in the newsletter itself or by sending a message to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then immediately delete your data in connection with the newsletter dispatch.
Notes on the newsletter and consents
With the following information we will inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedures as well as your rights of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to receive it and the procedures described.
Content of the newsletter
We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with advertising information (hereinafter "newsletter") 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. In addition, our newsletters contain information about our products and our company (this may include, in particular, references to our services, lectures, seminars or webinars).
Double opt-in and logging
Registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in procedure. As soon as you have registered for the newsletter, we will send you a confirmation e-mail with a link 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.
Use of the shipping service provider "CleverReach"
The newsletter is sent using “CleverReach”, a newsletter mailing platform (contact: CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Schafjueckenweg 2, 26180 Rastede, GERMANY).
In addition, CleverReach protects our newsletter subscribers with a comprehensive anti-spam policy.
Statistical survey and analysis
The newsletters contain a so-called "web beacon", ie a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the CleverReach server when the newsletter is opened. As part of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval, are initially collected. This information is used to technically improve the services 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.
The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our intention nor that of CleverReach to monitor individual users. The evaluations serve us much more 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.
Online retrieval and data management
There are cases in which we direct the newsletter recipients to the CleverReach websites. For example, our newsletter contains a link with which the newsletter recipient can access the newsletter online (e.g. in the event of display problems in the e-mail program). Furthermore, newsletter recipients can subsequently correct their data, such as their e-mail address.
We use the Google reCaptcha service to determine whether a person or a computer makes a specific entry in our contact or newsletter form. Google uses the following data to check whether you are a human or a computer: IP address of the terminal device used, the website that you are visiting and on which the Captcha is integrated, the date and duration of the visit, the identification data of the device used Browser and operating system type, Google account if you are logged in to Google, mouse movements on the reCaptcha areas and tasks that require you to identify images. The legal basis for the data processing described is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f of the General Data Protection Regulation. There is a legitimate interest on our part in this data processing, to ensure the security of our website and to protect us from automated input (attacks).
Order data processing
We have concluded an order data processing agreement with the following contractual partners and implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities:
User rights: information, correction and deletion
Your data will be deleted if:
- the purpose of the collection no longer applies,
- the consent is revoked (unsubscribe from the newsletter),
- the user objects ("delete my data") and there are no legal storage obligations (taxes and accounting).
The user has the right to request information free of charge about the personal data stored about him. In addition, the user has the right to correct incorrect data, blocking and deletion of his personal data, provided that there is no legal obligation to retain it. If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or your data protection rights have otherwise been violated in any way, you can complain to the supervisory authority. In Germany, this is the Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information.
