3 General Information

Pursuant to our statutory obligations, we would like to inform you about the collection and use of your personal data.

When you use our website, personal data about you will be collected. This may happen by you entering the data yourself, for example your e-mail address. But our system also collects your data automatically, for example whenever you visit our website. This happens irrespective of the device or the software that you use to visit our website.

All data that you enter in our app is provided voluntarily; there are no disadvantages to you if you do not provide data. But without certain data, we are unable to provide services or to conclude contracts. Whenever such information is necessary, we will point it out to you.

On this website, the user’s personal data is only collected within the framework of the existing data-protection law, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The legal terms used in the text are defined in Art. 4 of the GDPR.

The GDPR allows data processing in three cases in particular:

  • in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (a) and 7 GDPR, when you have consented to us processing your data; in this Privacy Policy and in the cases of consent pursuant to Art. 4 no. 11 GDPR, we will inform you in detail and each time for what purposes and under what circumstances your data will be processed by us;
  • in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR, when processing your personal data is necessary for negotiating, concluding or performing a contract;
  • in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, if the balancing of interests leads to the conclusion that the processing is necessary to protect our legitimate interests; this means in particular our interests to analyse, optimise and secure the offers on our website – meaning primarily the analysis of user behaviour, setting up profiles for advertisement purposes and storage of access data as well as the use of third-party providers.

 

3.1 Inventory Data

We collect inventory data as far as it is necessary to establish, negotiate or amend a contract (including one without remuneration) between us and the user. This can be: customer data (for example name, address), contact data (for example e-mail address, phone number), service data (for example services ordered, duration, payment). Upon establishing the user relationship, we will ask you for this data (for example name, address and e-mail address) and will also tell you which of the information is required to establish the user relationship.

3.2 Usage Data

We also collect usage data to allow users to use the services on our website. These may consist of: usage information (for example visited websites or parts, duration of visit, interest in services), content data (for example data, text, images, sounds, videos entered or uploaded by you), meta data (for example identity of your device, location, IP address).

We will only combine usage data if and insofar as it is necessary for billing purposes. Otherwise, we will only put together usage data pseudonymously and only insofar as you have not objected. You may send this objection to the address indicated in the “About Us” section or the responsible authority indicated in this Privacy Policy at any time.

The legal basis for this data processing are our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR in analysing the website and your use, possibly also the statutory permission to store data as part of the negotiation of a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR.

4 Hoster

4.1 ALL-INKL.COM

Our Website is presented in the Internet by a service provider. We use the service of ALL-INKL.COM, Neue Medien Münnich, Owner: René Münnich, Hauptstraße 68, D-02742 Friedersdorf. We have concluded a data processing agreement with our provider. With this contract, our provider is obliged to process the data according to our instructions. You can find more information on data processing at our provider in his privacy policy at https://all-inkl.com/datenschutzinformationen/. The legal basis for this data processing is on the one hand our legitimate interest in a technologically perfect online offering and its design and optimization in an economically efficient manner pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, and, on the other hand, our contractual or pre-contractual legal relationship in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR.
Furthermore, our provider stores information, the so-called server log files, each time the website is used; this is information which is automatically transferred by your browser. In detail, this data consists of:

  • your IP address
  • type and version of your browser
  • host name
  • time of visit
  • the page from which you came to our page
  • name of the page opened
  • exact time of usage as well as
  • the amount of data transferred

This data will only be used for statistical purposes and do not allow us to identify you as a user.“

5 Advertisements

Before sending you advertisements, we will ask for your explicit consent pursuant to Art. 4 no. 11 GDPR, except in cases of advertisements for similar products to the one you already acquired. This will happen in particular when you grant us consent to mail our newsletter or when you fill out a contact form.

You may withdraw your consent at any time in accordance with the subsequent section “Consent”.

INSOFAR AS WE USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR DIRECT MARKETING, YOU MAY ALSO OBJECT TO THE USE OF YOUR DATA FOR THAT PURPOSE AT ANY TIME. THIS MAY BE DONE THROUGH ANY OF OUR MEANS OF CONTACT, PARTICULARLY BY E-MAIL TO THE E-MAIL ADDRESS LISTED IN THE “LEGAL NOTICE” SECTION WITHOUT ANY FORMAL REQUIREMENTS. WE WILL THEN NO LONGER USE YOUR DATA FOR DIRECT MARKETING.

 

6 First Contact through Electronic Request

If you contact us in electronic form (for example by mail, fax, phone, messenger, etc.), we store and process the data which you have given us (for example name, contact information, content of the request). This is based on our legitimate interest in an effective communication with customers in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR and, as far as it concerns a request to enter into or to perform a contract, also with Article 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR.
We will only pass on this data to third parties as far as required for the performance of the contract (in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR), by the overwhelming interest in effective services (in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR) or based on your consent (in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR) or if there is another legal permission or obligation.
You may ask us at any time and without any cost to provide information about the purpose of the processing, the origin and the recipient, if any, of your data. You may also request that we correct, delete or limit the processing of your personal data. You may object against the (further) processing of your data at any time and you have a right for the data to be made transferable as well as the right to file a complaint with the competent supervisory agency.
In general, your data will only remain stored as long as required by the purpose of the respective data processing. A longer storage is an option, in particular when required in order to pursue our rights, for other legitimate interests of ours or when there is a statutory duty to keep the data longer (for example record-keeping under tax law, statute of limitations).

7 Consent

Whenever we ask you for your consent for the processing of your data, we will inform you in clear language and in an easily accessible way about the cases for which you will be granting your consent. Any consent that we ask you for is voluntary. Any advantage that you wish to gain by granting consent is also available without consent; simply ask us.

Regarding any consent, you have the right to revoke any consent given to us for the processing of your personal data at any time. You just need to contact us without any particular formal requirement, for example through our contact form, an e-mail to the e-mail address indicated in the “About Us” section or a link to unsubscribe (if offered by us). Your withdrawal has no effect on the legality of the data processing carried out up to that point.

8 Storage Period

Generally, your data will only remain stored as long as required by the purpose of the respective data processing. Storage beyond that is possible in particular if it is still required for pursuing our rights or for other legitimate interests of ours.
For your inventory data which were necessary to perform a contract (including one without remuneration), this means that we store this data until the complete performance or termination of the contractual relationship plus the limitation period (which is generally 2 or 3 years) plus an adequate extra time for potential interruptions of the limitation period.
For your usage data which was collected in the course of your use of the website, this means that we will store it only for the time still required for the proper functionality of our website and as long as we still have a legitimate interest. Statistical information will be primarily stored by us in pseudonymous form.
Beyond that, we still store your data for as long as we are required to do so by law. This concerns in particular the tax-law requirements to keep records, usually for 6 or even 10 years.

Upon opening the website, we have asked you to consent to the storing of certain cookies which will be placed while you visit our website. Based on your consent pursuant to Art 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR, our website thus uses cookies, so that our offer can be used in a better, more effective and more secure way.

These can be “session cookies”, which are automatically deleted when you leave our website. Other cookies are stored on your computer permanently until you delete them. That allows us to recognize your browser when you visit our website again and to provide you with features or offers according to your previous usage.

Your browser allows you to prevent the use of cookies in general or in specific cases. Please check the instructions for your browser to find out more about this. You can also delete cookies following these instructions which we have listed for you:

If you want to withdraw your consent, simply delete the cookie in your browser. For information on deleting cookies, we refer you to the chapter “cookies” in this privacy policy. If you re-enter/reload our website, you will be asked for your consent to place cookies again.

10 Transfer of data

10.1 Transfer to other countries, particularly USA

Our website uses external providers located outside of the EU for different features. In particular, the use of cookies, active Java scripts and other technology can lead to processing and storage of your data outside of the EU. But we will not transfer your data to a third country, unless the EU Commission has determined that there is a similar level of data protection as in the EU or unless you have provided us with your informed consent or we have agreed on the standard contractual clauses for the protection of your data with the provider.

11 Users‘ Rights

You may request us anytime to provide information about the personal data stored about you free of charge. To avoid misuse, this will require personal identification.

11.1 Deletion, Correction, Limitation

You may at any time demand from us that we correct (or complete) incorrect data as well as a limitation of the processing of data or deletion of your data. This applies in particular if the reason for processing the data is no longer valid, if a required consent has been revoked and there is no other legal basis or if our data processing is unlawful. We will then correct, block or even delete your personal data without delay as far as permitted by law.

11.2 Objection

The right to object to advertisement is governed by our text regarding consent:

Regarding any consent, you have the right to revoke any consent given to us for the processing of your personal data at any time.

13 Data Entry

13.1 Encryption of Data Entry

When you enter data on our website, whether in a contact form, during the registration process, when you log in or for payment purposes, the website, where you enter the data, is encrypted.

Your data will be transferred in an encrypted manner, preventing third parties from reading your data while it is being entered.

Basis for this storage is the safeguarding of our legitimate interests in regard to communication with interested users pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR and in the case of inquiries prior to entering into a contract also the performance of a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para (b) GDPR.

Your data remains stored for as long as the processing of the request requires, in particular as long as the storage is still necessary to perform the contract, to pursue our rights or for our other legitimate interests or we are compelled by law to keep your data stored (for example based on tax-law requirements to maintain files).

Your data will remain stored for as long as you remain registered, particularly as long as the storage is still required to perform the contract, to pursue our rights or for our other legitimate interests or for as long as we are required by law to store your data (for example pursuant to tax-law requirements to store documents).

14 Blog / Comments

14.1 Comments

If you comment something on our page, we will save your IP address to make sure that only lawful comments will be published. After reviewing and allowing the comment by us, this data will be deleted. We will also save your comment as well as the information entered together with it (for example user name or e-mail address).

Basis for this storage is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR, which you provide to us by filling in the comment field. You may revoke this consent at any time, you just need to contact us without any particular formal requirement (for example by unsubscribing, contact form or e-mail).

14.2 Gravatar

With the standard settings, WordPress also uses Gravatar to attribute an avatar to you. In that process, your IP address is transmitted. For reasons of data protection, we have deactivated the Gravatar feature.

15 Newsletter

15.1 Mail Chimp

If you subscribe to the newsletter offered on our website, we will inform you in detail about the information you will receive, which of your data will be stored and what it will be used for. We will not pass on your data to third parties and we will only use it to mail the newsletter.

We will only mail you the newsletter if you have given us your prior permission. To that purpose, you will receive an e-mail from us with a link and further instructions and our request for your consent. By clicking on this link, you declare your consent to receiving the newsletter and our advertising.

Because we are legally obligated to record your permission as part of the so-called double opt-in, your order of the newsletter, the mailing of our e-mail of consent and your consent by clicking on the link will be recorded and saved with location and time as well as with your IP address.
The basis for the storage is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR, which you grant to us by registering for the newsletter. You may revoke this consent at any time, you just need to contact us without any particular formal requirement (for example through the contact form or an e-mail or the unsubscribe button in each e-mail). This withdrawal has no effect on the legality of the data processing that has occurred until that point.

For mailing the newsletter, we use (based on our legitimate interest in a technologically perfect processing of our customer information and analysis) the provider MailChimp (Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA) from the USA.
This means, your data will be exportet to the USA. We have concluded a data processing agreement including the EU standard contractual clauses with our newsletter provider, in which he guarantees to protect your data in compliance with the GDPR and manage your data solely as ordered by us.

In our newsletter, we will also explicitly ask you to provide your consent to transferring data to MailChimp and to the USA. You will declare that consent by clicking on the link, but you may revoke it at any time. For the handling of your data at MailChimp, we refer you to the Privacy Policy of MailChimp at: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/.
MailChimp will only use your data for mailing the newsletter and for evaluating that mailing on our behalf. In addition to that, MailChimp will only use your data to improve their own service. But MailChimp will not use the data to contact you directly or to pass on your data to third parties.

The mails used by MailChimp contains a “web beacon“, which will inform MailChimp about the opening of the newsletter and/or the clicking on a link contained therein by you. As part of that process, information regarding your browser, your location and your IP address will be transmitted to MailChimp. This information will be used to optimise our communication with you.

Our newsletter provider will also use this data for purposes of analysis and optimisation of their own service, but only in pseudonymised form (meaning that your identification is not possible). But your data will not be used by the provider to contact you directly.

Your data will remain stored for as long as you are stored in our mailing list, the storage is required to enforce our rights or it is necessary for our legitimate interest or we are required by law to keep your data.

The Cookies contain data about technical specifications of your system, the websites visited, the interests shown and which ads were clicked.
At the same time we have a „Conversion Cookie“. With it Google shows us anonymize statstics without personal data. It is just about how often our ads were clicked.
