We use the following terms in this privacy statement, among others

(a) personal data

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “data subject”). A natural person shall be considered identifiable if he can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an on-line identifier or one or more specific characteristics expressing the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

(f) pseudonymisation

Pseudonymisation means the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the provision of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures ensuring that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

(g) controller or data controller

The controller or data controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are laid down by Union law or by the law of the Member States, the controller or controllers may be designated in accordance with Union law or with the law of the Member States on the basis of certain criteria.

However, authorities which may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation mandate under Union law or the law of the Member States shall not be considered as recipients.

(j) third parties

Third party means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or processor.

(k) consent

  1. Data processing through visits to the website

When you call up our web pages, it is technically necessary for data to be transmitted to our web server via your Internet browser. The following data is recorded during an ongoing connection for communication between your Internet browser and our web server:

  • Date and time of the request
  • Name of the requested file
  • Page from which the file was requested
  • Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
  • web browser used and operating system used
  • full IP address of the requesting computer
  • transmitted data volume

We collect the listed data in order to guarantee a smooth connection establishment of the website and to enable a comfortable use of our website by the users. In addition, the log file is used to evaluate system security and stability as well as for administrative purposes. The legal basis for the temporary storage of data or log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

For reasons of technical security, in particular to prevent attempts to attack our web server, we store this data for a short period of time. It is not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual persons on the basis of this data. After seven days at the latest, the data is anonymized by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a reference to the individual user. The data is also processed anonymously for statistical purposes. These data are not stored together with other personal data of the user, a comparison with other databases or a transfer to third parties does not take place. Only within the framework of our server statistics, which we publish every two years in our activity report, is the number of page views displayed.

  1. General data processing on the website

Gathering of general data and information

Our website collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The (1) browser types and versions used can be recorded, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-sites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information used to avert dangers in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information finanztrends.info does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. This information is needed (1) to correctly deliver the content of our website, (2) to optimize the content and advertising of our website, (3) to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated by finanztrends.info both statistically and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by the person concerned.

Count per Day

This website uses Count-per-Day, a WordPress plugin that allows statistical analysis of access data. The information generated (anonymous IP address, date without time, browser type and version, origin page and address of the current page) is stored on the server of the website operator. By anonymizing the IP address, it is not possible to draw any conclusions about individual persons.

Count per day cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a justified interest in the anonymous analysis of user behaviour in order to optimise both his website and his advertising. The Count-per-Day cookies remain on your device until you delete them.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, accept cookies for certain cases or generally exclude them and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.

Accelerated Mobile Pages

We also deliver our contributions as Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP). It is therefore possible that, for example, after a Google search with your smartphone, you read our articles on the Internet and that these are not even on our servers. Instead, it is possible that the pages are delivered directly from the cache of third-party providers such as Google. You will notice that the URL from which you called this page does not contain our domain name (i.e. our Internet addresses), but, for example, the domain name of Google. Google will not change the source code of our site. We have also decided not to enable Google Analytics in the AMP version of our site. However, we would like to point out one thing: If the AMP version of the page is stored temporarily by Google or other third parties and is accessed from there, we have no influence on the data processing and handling of your IP address. We make sure that we do not collect any personal data via our AMP pages and have therefore deactivated all contact forms in the AMP version.

pushcrew

In order to inform you about the latest content on our offer, we use the software Pushcrew of the company Wingify, located in 14th Floor, KLJ Tower North, Netaji Subhash Place, Pitam Pura, Delhi 110034, India. Pushcrew enables us to reach our visitors with push notifications via native push API of different browsers. For details on the handling of your personal data by Pushcrew and your rights in this regard, please refer to Pushcrew’s data protection information at pushcrew.com/privacy-policy/. Push notifications in your browser always depend on your consent. Once you have given your consent to push notifications on our website, you can undo them in your browser settings.

plista GmbH

Our websites are supported by a fully automatic recommendation technology from plista GmbH, Torstraße 33, 10119 Berlin. We use this technology to improve the usability of our websites by recommending articles and ads to you, our visitors, that are tailored to your individual interests (so-called usage-based advertising). In order to be able to play out use-based advertisements, plista collects information about the usage behaviour of website visitors (so-called usage data) by means of cookies on all websites of the plista partner network and combines these with a random identification sign assigned by plista (so-called cookie ID) to form pseudonymous usage profiles. You can find more information about this and plista’s data protection at www.plista.com/de/about/privacy/. Of course you are free at any time to deactivate use-based advertising of plista by declaring your opt-out at www.plista.com/de/about/opt-out/

Registration on our website

The data subject shall have the possibility to register on the website of the controller by providing personal data. The personal data transmitted to the data controller is determined by the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject shall be collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the data controller and for its own purposes. The controller may arrange for the data to be disclosed to one or more processors, such as a parcel service provider, who will also use the personal data solely for internal purposes attributable to the controller.

By registering on the website of the data controller, the IP address assigned to the data subject by the Internet service provider (ISP), the date and time of registration are also stored. The storage of these data takes place against the background that only so the abuse of our services can be prevented, and these data make if necessary possible to clear up committed crimes. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary to safeguard the data controller. This data will not be passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to do so or unless the data is used for criminal prosecution.

The registration of the data subject by voluntarily providing personal data serves the purpose of the data controller to offer the data subject contents or services which, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to modify the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have them completely deleted from the database of the data controller.

The data controller shall provide any data subject at any time upon request with information as to which personal data relating to the data subject are stored. Furthermore, the data controller shall correct or delete personal data at the request or notice of the data subject, provided that this does not conflict with any statutory storage obligations. A data protection officer named in this privacy statement and the entire staff of the controller shall be available to the data subject as contact persons in this context.

Orders via our website

You can either place orders as a guest via our website without registering, or register as a customer in our shop for future orders. A registration has the advantage for you that in case of a future order you can log in to our shop directly with your e-mail address and your password without having to enter your contact data again. Your personal data will be entered into an input mask and transmitted to us and stored. If you place an order via our website, we first collect the following data both in the case of a guest order and in the case of registration in the shop: Salutation, first name, surname, a valid e-mail address, address, telephone number (landline and/or mobile)

This data is collected in order to identify you as our customer; to process, fulfil and process your order; to correspond with you; to invoice you; to process any liability claims you may have and to assert any claims against you; to ensure the technical administration of our website; to administer our customer data.

As part of the ordering process, your consent to the processing of this data will be obtained. The data processing takes place on your order and/or registration and is necessary according to art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b DSGVO for the mentioned purposes for the appropriate processing of your order and for the mutual fulfilment of obligations from the purchase contract. The personal data collected by us for the processing of your order will be stored until the expiry of the statutory storage obligation and deleted thereafter, unless we are obliged to store them for a longer period of time in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c DSGVO due to tax and commercial law storage and documentation obligations (from HGB, StGB or AO) or you have consented to storage going beyond this in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO.

Contact possibility via the website

The website of finanztrends.info contains, due to legal regulations, information that allows a quick electronic contact to our company as well as a direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject shall be automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted voluntarily by a data subject to the controller are stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.

Comment function in the blog on the website

finanztrends.info offers users the possibility to leave individual comments on individual blog entries on a blog located on the website of the data controller. A blog is a portal that is maintained on a website, usually open to the public, in which one or more people called bloggers or web bloggers can post articles or write thoughts in so-called blog posts. The blog posts can usually be commented on by third parties.

If a data subject leaves a comment in the blog published on this website, in addition to the comments left by the data subject, information about the time of the comment entry and the user name (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject will also be stored and published. Furthermore, the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) to the person concerned is logged. The IP address is stored for security reasons and in the event that the person concerned violates the rights of third parties by submitting a comment or posts illegal content. The storage of these personal data therefore takes place in the own interest of the data controller, so that in the event of a violation of the law, the data controller could exculpate himself. This collected personal data will not be passed on to third parties unless such a passing on is prescribed by law or serves the legal defence of the controller.

Subscribe to comments in the blog on the website

The comments posted on the finanztrends.info blog can be subscribed to by third parties. In particular, it is possible for a commentator to subscribe to the comments following his comment on a particular blog post.

If a data subject chooses the option to subscribe to comments, the data controller shall send an automatic confirmation email to the double opt-in process to verify that the owner of the specified email address has actually opted for this option. The option to subscribe to comments can be cancelled at any time.

Privacy policy for applications and in the application process

The data controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This shall in particular be the case where an applicant sends the relevant application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example by e-mail or via a web form on the website. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transferred data shall be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in accordance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude a contract of employment with the candidate, the application file shall be automatically deleted two months after notification of the refusal decision, unless deletion conflicts with any other legitimate interests of the controller. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, the duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz – AGG).

  1. Newsletter

Subscription to our newsletter

The website finanztrends.info offers users the opportunity to subscribe to our company’s newsletter. Which personal data is transferred to the person responsible for processing when ordering the newsletter results from the input mask used for this purpose.

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on our website with regular information on our offers and products, we need your e-mail address as the mandatory information. We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to send the newsletter. This means that we will not send you our newsletter by e-mail until you have expressly confirmed that you agree to receive newsletters. In the first step, you will receive an e-mail with a link that you can use to confirm that you wish to receive newsletters in the future as the owner of the e-mail address in question. With the confirmation you give us your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO that we may use your personal data for the purpose of sending the newsletter.

When you register for the newsletter, we store the e-mail address required for sending the newsletter, the IP address you used to register for the newsletter and the date and time of registration in order to track any possible misuse at a later point in time.

You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time via the link included in each newsletter or by sending an e-mail to the above-mentioned responsible person. After you have unsubscribed, your e-mail address will be deleted immediately from our newsletter distribution list unless you have expressly consented to the continued use of the data collected or the continued processing is otherwise legally permissible.

Newsletter Tracking

The newsletters of finanztrends.info contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a thumbnail image embedded in emails sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns to be carried out. Based on the embedded pixel, finanztrends.info can recognize if and when an e-mail was opened by an affected person and which links in the e-mail were accessed by the affected person.

Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the data controller in order to optimise the newsletter dispatch and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the person concerned. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Affected persons are entitled at any time to revoke the relevant separate declaration of consent submitted via the double opt-in procedure. After revocation, this personal data will be deleted by the data controller. If you unsubscribe from the newsletter, finanztrends.info automatically interprets this as a revocation.

Use of the mail service provider “MailChimp”

The newsletter is sent via “MailChimp”, a newsletter distribution platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.

The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described in the context of this notice, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, MailChimp can use this data according to its own information for the optimization or improvement of its own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of the dispatch and display of the newsletter or for economic purposes, to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them or pass them on to third parties.

We rely on the reliability and IT and data security of MailChimp. MailChimp is certified under the US-EU data protection agreement “Privacy Shield” and is thus committed to complying with EU data protection regulations. In addition, we have concluded a data processing agreement with MailChimp. This is a contract in which MailChimp undertakes to protect the data of our users, to process them on our behalf in accordance with their data protection regulations and, in particular, not to pass them on to third parties. The privacy policy of MailChimp can be viewed here: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/ .

Use of the email marketing provider Episerver (formerly Optivo)

We use Episerver Campaign (formerly optivo® broadmail), an email marketing software from Episerver GmbH, Wallstraße 16, 10179 Berlin. The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described in this notice, are located on Episerver’s servers in data centers in Germany and are subject to the German Data Protection Act. Episerver uses this information to send and evaluate newsletters on our behalf. In addition, Episerver may use this data to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimize the dispatch and display of newsletters. However, Episerver does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them itself or pass the data on to third parties. Data security has always been a top priority at Episerver. The comprehensive and valid security concept for their Omnichannel and email marketing cloud Episerver Campaign is ISO 27001 certified. Further information can be found at https://www.episerver.de/produkte/plattform/episerver-campaign/sicherheit/.

  1. Web analysis and advertising tracking

Google Analytics

The data controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data about the behavior of visitors to Internet sites. A web analysis service collects data on, among other things, from which website a person concerned has accessed a website (so-called referrers), which subpages of the website have been accessed or how often and for how long a subpage has been viewed. A web analysis is mainly used for the optimization of a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising. The user and event data are automatically deleted after 50 months.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The data controller uses the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp” for the web analysis via Google Analytics. This addition is used by Google to shorten and anonymise the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned if access to our Internet pages is from a Member State of the European Union or from another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us showing the activities on our website and to provide other services in connection with the use of our website.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is able to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission statements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may share this personal information collected through the technical process with third parties.

Contradiction against data collection (Google Analytics)

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, it is possible for the person concerned to object to and prevent the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. For this purpose, the person concerned must download and install a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout . This browser add-on tells Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about visits to Internet pages may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google as a contradiction. If the data subject’s information technology system is later deleted, formatted or reinstalled, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the person concerned or by another person within his/her sphere of control, the browser add-on can be reinstalled or reactivated.

Further information and Google’s applicable privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html Google Analytics is explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.com/intl/de_en/analytics/.

Google AdSense

The person responsible for the processing has integrated Google AdSense on this website. Google AdSense is an online service that enables the placement of advertisements on third-party sites. Google AdSense is based on an algorithm that selects the advertisements displayed on third party sites according to the content of the respective third party site. Google AdSense allows an interest-related targeting of the Internet user, which is implemented by generating individual user profiles.

The operating company of the Google AdSense component is Alphabet Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of the Google AdSense component is to include advertisements on our website. Google AdSense places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. The setting of cookies enables Alphabet Inc. to analyse the use of our website. Each time you access one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google AdSense component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google AdSense component to transmit data to Alphabet Inc. for the purpose of online advertising and billing commissions. As part of this technical process, Alphabet Inc. gains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Alphabet Inc. uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission statements to be prepared.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Alphabet Inc. from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Alphabet Inc. can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Google AdSense also uses so-called tracking pixels. A counting pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in web pages to enable log file recording and analysis, which can be used for statistical analysis. Using the embedded pixel-code, Alphabet Inc. can recognize if and when a website was opened by an affected person and which links were clicked by the affected person. Zählpixel serve among other things to evaluate the visitor flow of a website.

Through Google AdSense, personal data and information, including IP address and necessary for the collection and billing of advertisements displayed, is transferred to Alphabet Inc. in the United States of America. This personal data is stored and processed in the United States of America. Alphabet Inc. may share this personal information collected through the technical process with third parties.

Google AdSense is explained under this link https://www.google.de/intl/de/adsense/start/ in more detail.

Google Remarketing

The data controller has integrated Google Remarketing services into this website. Google Remarketing is a Google AdWords feature that enables a company to display advertisements to Internet users who have previously been on the company’s website. The integration of Google Remarketing therefore allows a company to create user-related advertisements and consequently to display advertisements of interest to the Internet user.

Google Remarketing services are operated by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of Google Remarketing is to display advertisements that are relevant to your interests. Google Remarketing allows us to display advertisements through the Google advertising network or on other websites that are tailored to the individual needs and interests of Internet users.

Google Remarketing places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. The setting of cookies enables Google to recognize visitors to our website who subsequently visit websites that are also members of the Google advertising network. Each time a website is accessed on which the Google Remarketing service has been integrated, the Internet browser of the person concerned automatically identifies itself to Google. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address or the surfing behaviour of the user, which Google uses, among other things, to display advertisements relevant to the interests of the user.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the Internet pages visited by the person concerned. Accordingly, each time you visit our website, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may share this personal information collected through the technical process with third parties.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the person concerned has the opportunity to object to the interest-related advertising by Google. To do this, the person concerned must access the link www.google.de/settings/ads from any of the Internet browsers they use and make the desired settings there.

For more information and to review Google’s current privacy policy, please visit https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/

Google-AdWords

The person responsible for the processing has integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to serve ads both in Google’s search engine results and on the Google advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-define keywords that will be used to display an ad in Google’s search engine results only when the user uses the search engine to retrieve a keyword relevant search result. In the Google advertising network, the ads are distributed to relevant Internet sites using an automatic algorithm and in accordance with the keywords defined beforehand.

The company operating the Google AdWords services is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of Google AdWords is to promote our website by displaying advertisements of interest on the websites of third parties and in the search results of the Google search engine and by displaying third-party advertisements on our website.

If a person concerned reaches our website via a Google advertisement, a so-called conversion cookie is stored on the information technology system of the person concerned by Google. What cookies are has already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and does not serve to identify the person concerned. If the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie is used to track whether certain subpages, such as the shopping cart of an online shop system, have been accessed on our website. Through the conversion cookie, both we and Google can track whether a person who came to our website via an AdWords ad generated a turnover, i.e. completed or cancelled a purchase of goods.

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to compile visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are in turn used by us to determine the total number of users who were referred to us via AdWords ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords ad and to optimise our AdWords ads for the future.

The operating company of SlideShare is LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. For privacy matters outside the United States, LinkedIn Ireland, Privacy Policy Issues, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, is responsible.

LinkedIn SlideShare provides so-called embed codes for the media content stored there (presentations, PDF files, videos, photos, etc.). Embed codes are program codes that are embedded in Internet pages with the aim of displaying external content on their own Internet pages. Embed codes make it possible to reproduce content on one’s own website without storing it on one’s own server and in doing so possibly violate the reproduction right of the respective author of the content. A further advantage of using an embed code is that the respective operator of an Internet page does not use its own storage space and its own server is thus relieved. An embed code can be integrated at any point on another website, so that external content can also be inserted within one’s own text. The purpose of the use of LinkedIn SlideShare is to relieve our server as well as to avoid copyright infringements when using third-party content at the same time.

Each time you visit our website, which is equipped with a SlideShare component (Embed Codes), this component causes the browser you are using to download embedded data from SlideShare. As part of this technical process, LinkedIn obtains information as to which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.

If the person concerned is logged in to SlideShare at the same time, SlideShare recognizes which specific subpage the person concerned is visiting each time the person concerned accesses our website and for the entire duration of that person’s stay on our website. This information is collected by SlideShare and assigned by LinkedIn to the respective SlideShare account of the person concerned.

LinkedIn always receives information via the SlideShare component that the person concerned has visited our website if the person concerned is logged in to SlideShare at the same time as accessing our website; this takes place regardless of whether the person concerned clicks on the integrated media data or not. If the person concerned does not want LinkedIn to receive this information, they can prevent the transmission by logging out of their SlideShare account before accessing our website.

LinkedIn also uses partners such as Quantcast, Google Analytics, BlueKai, DoubleClick, Nielsen, Comscore, Eloqua and Lotame who can set cookies. Such cookies can be rejected at https://www.linkedin.com/legal/cookie-policy . LinkedIn’s current privacy policy can be found at https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy .

Payment method: Privacy policy of PayPal as payment method

The data controller has integrated PayPal components into this website. PayPal is an online payment service provider. Payments are processed via so-called PayPal accounts, which are virtual private or business accounts. In addition, PayPal offers the option of processing virtual payments via credit cards if a user does not have a PayPal account. A PayPal account is managed via an e-mail address, which is why there is no classic account number. PayPal makes it possible to trigger online payments to third parties or to receive payments. PayPal also acts as a trustee and offers buyer protection services.

The European operating company of PayPal is PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. & Cie. S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, 2449 Luxembourg, Luxembourg.

If the person concerned selects “PayPal” as a payment option during the ordering process in our online shop, the data of the person concerned is automatically transferred to PayPal. By selecting this payment option, the data subject consents to the transmission of personal data necessary for the processing of the payment.

The personal data transmitted to PayPal is usually first name, surname, address, email address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number or other data necessary for payment processing. Personal data related to the respective order are also necessary for the processing of the purchase contract.

The purpose of data transmission is to process payments and prevent fraud. The person responsible for the processing will transfer personal data to PayPal in particular if there is a justified interest in the transfer. Personal data exchanged between PayPal and the data controller may be transferred by PayPal to credit reference agencies. The purpose of this transmission is to check identity and creditworthiness.

PayPal may share the personal information with affiliated companies and service providers or subcontractors to the extent necessary to fulfill its contractual obligations or to process the information on behalf of PayPal.

The person concerned has the possibility to revoke their consent to the handling of personal data at any time vis-à-vis PayPal. A revocation does not affect personal data which must be processed, used or transmitted for (contractual) payment processing.

Personal information submitted to Amazon Services Europe or collected by Amazon Services Europe is primarily controlled by Amazon EU S.à r.l. and Amazon Services Europe S.à r.l. as data controllers, both located at 5, Rue Plaetis L-2338, Luxembourg, and secondarily by Amazon.de GmbH, Marcel-Breuer-Str. 12, 80807 Munich, Germany, as data processors.

Amazon Services Europe follows the same information processing practices as Amazon.co.uk; the information collected by Amazon is subject to Amazon.co.uk’s privacy policy. By accessing the services.amazon.co.uk website, you acknowledge and agree to the practices described in Amazon.co.uk’s Privacy Policy.

Legal basis of the processing

Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, such as in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our business was injured and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not predominate. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the person concerned is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 DS Block Exemption Regulation).

  1. Data transfer and receiver

A transfer of your personal data to third parties does not take place, except

– if we have explicitly pointed this out in the description of the respective data processing.

– if you have given your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO,

– the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not disclosing your data,

– in the event that there is a legal obligation to pass on data pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. c DSGVO, and

– to the extent required by Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b DSGVO for the execution of contractual relationships with you.

In addition, we use external service providers for the processing of our services, whom we have carefully selected and commissioned in writing. They are bound by our instructions and are regularly monitored by us. With which we have concluded contract processing agreements pursuant to Art. 28 DSGVO, if necessary. These are service providers for web hosting, sending e-mails as well as maintenance and servicing of our IT systems, etc. The service providers will not pass this data on to third parties. legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or by a third party

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is the conduct of our business for the benefit of all our employees and shareholders. Data transfer to third countries We partially transfer personal data to a third country outside the EU. In each case, we have ensured an appropriate level of data protection and concluded an order data processing agreement with the service providers: In the case of Google Analytics (USA) and MailChimp (USA), Shopify Inc. (USA) and Episerver (EU/USA), an appropriate level of data protection follows in addition to the AV contracts from the corresponding participation in the Privacy Shield Agreement (Art. 45 para. 1 DSGVO). The Privacy Shield is a data protection framework agreement developed by the US Department of Commerce and the European Commission. The Framework Agreement aims to meet data protection requirements for the transfer of personal data from the European Union to the United States.

  1. Duration of storage of personal data

The duration of the storage of personal data is determined by the relevant statutory retention periods (e.g. from commercial law and tax law). After expiration of the respective period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted. If data is required for contract fulfilment or contract initiation or if we have a justified interest in further storage, the data will be deleted if you are no longer required for these purposes or if you make use of your right of revocation or objection.

  1. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

The controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period of time necessary to achieve the storage purpose or where provided for by the European directive and regulation maker or another legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.

We will inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a person concerned makes personal data available to us which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data when our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract could not be concluded with the data subject. Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee informs the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of a contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what consequences the non-availability of the personal data would have.
