Privacy policy

Privacy Policy
We are very delighted that you have shown interest in our enter­prise. Data protec­tion is of a partic­u­larly high priority for the manage­ment of the Mogli. The use of the Internet pages of the Mogli is possible without any indi­ca­tion of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special enter­prise services via our website, processing of personal data could become neces­sary. If the processing of personal data is neces­sary and there is no statu­tory basis for such processing, we gener­ally obtain consent from the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e‑mail address, or tele­phone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protec­tion Regu­la­tion (GDPR), and in accor­dance with the country-specific data protec­tion regu­la­tions applic­able to the Mogli. By means of this data protec­tion decla­ra­tion, our enter­prise would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Further­more, data subjects are informed, by means of this data protec­tion decla­ra­tion, of the rights to which they are entitled.

As the controller, the Mogli has imple­mented numerous tech­nical and orga­ni­za­tional measures to ensure the most complete protec­tion of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data trans­mis­sions may in prin­ciple have secu­rity gaps, so absolute protec­tion may not be guar­an­teed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alter­na­tive means, e.g. by telephone.

1. Definitions

The data protec­tion decla­ra­tion of the Mogli is based on the terms used by the Euro­pean legis­lator for the adop­tion of the General Data Protec­tion Regu­la­tion (GDPR). Our data protec­tion decla­ra­tion should be legible and under­stand­able for the general public, as well as our customers and busi­ness part­ners. To ensure this, we would like to first explain the termi­nology used.

In this data protec­tion decla­ra­tion, we use, inter alia, the following terms:

  • a) Personal data
    Personal data means any infor­ma­tion relating to an iden­ti­fied or iden­ti­fi­able natural person (“data subject”). An iden­ti­fi­able natural person is one who can be iden­ti­fied, directly or indi­rectly, in partic­ular by refer­ence to an iden­ti­fier such as a name, an iden­ti­fi­ca­tion number, loca­tion data, an online iden­ti­fier or to one or more factors specific to the phys­ical, phys­i­o­log­ical, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social iden­tity of that natural person.
  • b) Data subject
    Data subject is any iden­ti­fied or iden­ti­fi­able natural person, whose personal data is processed by the controller respon­sible for the processing.
  • c) Processing
    Processing is any oper­a­tion or set of oper­a­tions which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by auto­mated means, such as collec­tion, recording, organ­i­sa­tion, struc­turing, storage, adap­ta­tion or alter­ation, retrieval, consul­ta­tion, use, disclo­sure by trans­mis­sion, dissem­i­na­tion or other­wise making avail­able, align­ment or combi­na­tion, restric­tion, erasure or destruction.
  • d) Restric­tion of processing
    Restric­tion of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.
  • e) Profiling
    Profiling means any form of auto­mated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to eval­uate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in partic­ular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s perfor­mance at work, economic situ­a­tion, health, personal pref­er­ences, inter­ests, reli­a­bility, behav­iour, loca­tion or movements.
  • f) Pseu­do­nymi­sa­tion
    Pseu­do­nymi­sa­tion is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attrib­uted to a specific data subject without the use of addi­tional infor­ma­tion, provided that such addi­tional infor­ma­tion is kept sepa­rately and is subject to tech­nical and organ­i­sa­tional measures to ensure that the personal data are not attrib­uted to an iden­ti­fied or iden­ti­fi­able natural person.
  • g) Controller or controller respon­sible for the processing
    Controller or controller respon­sible for the processing 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 deter­mined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomi­na­tion may be provided for by Union or Member State law.
  • h) Processor
    Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
  • i) Recip­ient
    Recip­ient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public author­i­ties which may receive personal data in the frame­work of a partic­ular inquiry in accor­dance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recip­i­ents; the processing of those data by those public author­i­ties shall be in compli­ance with the applic­able data protec­tion rules according to the purposes of the processing.
  • j) Third party
    Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are autho­rised to process personal data.
  • k) Consent
    Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and unam­biguous indi­ca­tion of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a state­ment or by a clear affir­ma­tive action, signi­fies agree­ment to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

2. Name and Address of the controller

3. Cookies
The Internet pages of the Mogli use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many Internet sites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique iden­ti­fier of the cookie. It consists of a char­acter string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited Internet sites and servers to differ­en­tiate the indi­vidual browser of the dats subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recog­nized and iden­ti­fied using the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, the Mogli can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

By means of a cookie, the infor­ma­tion and offers on our website can be opti­mized with the user in mind. Cookies allow us, as previ­ously mentioned, to recog­nize our website users. The purpose of this recog­ni­tion is to make it easier for users to utilize our website. The website user that uses cookies, e.g. does not have to enter access data each time the website is accessed, because this is taken over by the website, and the cookie is thus stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shop­ping cart in an online shop. The online store remem­bers the arti­cles that a customer has placed in the virtual shop­ping cart via a cookie.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corre­sponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus perma­nently deny the setting of cookies. Further­more, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other soft­ware programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deac­ti­vates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all func­tions of our website may be entirely usable.

4. Collec­tion of general data and information

The website of the Mogli collects a series of general data and infor­ma­tion when a data subject or auto­mated system calls up the website. This general data and infor­ma­tion are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the oper­ating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called refer­rers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and infor­ma­tion that may be used in the event of attacks on our infor­ma­tion tech­nology systems.

When using these general data and infor­ma­tion, the Mogli does not draw any conclu­sions about the data subject. Rather, this infor­ma­tion is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) opti­mize the content of our website as well as its adver­tise­ment, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our infor­ma­tion tech­nology systems and website tech­nology, and (4) provide law enforce­ment author­i­ties with the infor­ma­tion neces­sary for crim­inal pros­e­cu­tion in case of a cyber-attack. There­fore, the Mogli analyzes anony­mously collected data and infor­ma­tion statis­ti­cally, with the aim of increasing the data protec­tion and data secu­rity of our enter­prise, and to ensure an optimal level of protec­tion for the personal data we process. The anony­mous data of the server log files are stored sepa­rately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

5. Regis­tra­tion on our website

The data subject has the possi­bility to register on the website of the controller with the indi­ca­tion of personal data. Which personal data are trans­mitted to the controller is deter­mined by the respec­tive input mask used for the regis­tra­tion. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclu­sively for internal use by the controller, and for his own purposes. The controller may request transfer to one or more proces­sors (e.g. a parcel service) that also uses personal data for an internal purpose which is attrib­ut­able to the controller.

By regis­tering on the website of the controller, the IP address—assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject—date, and time of the regis­tra­tion are also stored. The storage of this data takes place against the back­ground that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services, and, if neces­sary, to make it possible to inves­ti­gate committed offenses. Insofar, the storage of this data is neces­sary to secure the controller. This data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a statu­tory oblig­a­tion to pass on the data, or if the transfer serves the aim of crim­inal prosecution.

The regis­tra­tion of the data subject, with the volun­tary indi­ca­tion of personal data, is intended to enable the controller to offer the data subject contents or services that may only be offered to regis­tered users due to the nature of the matter in ques­tion. Regis­tered persons are free to change the personal data spec­i­fied during the regis­tra­tion at any time, or to have them completely deleted from the data stock of the controller.

The data controller shall, at any time, provide infor­ma­tion upon request to each data subject as to what personal data are stored about the data subject. In addi­tion, the data controller shall correct or erase personal data at the request or indi­ca­tion of the data subject, insofar as there are no statu­tory storage oblig­a­tions. The entirety of the controller’s employees are avail­able to the data subject in this respect as contact persons.

6. Contact possi­bility via the website

The website of the Mogli contains infor­ma­tion that enables a quick elec­tronic contact to our enter­prise, as well as 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 are auto­mat­i­cally stored. Such personal data trans­mitted on a volun­tary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no transfer of this personal data to third parties.

7. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period neces­sary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the Euro­pean legis­lator or other legis­la­tors in laws or regu­la­tions to which the controller is subject to.

If the storage purpose is not applic­able, or if a storage period prescribed by the Euro­pean legis­lator or another compe­tent legis­lator expires, the personal data are routinely blocked or erased in accor­dance with legal requirements.
8. Rights of the data subject

  • a) Right of confirmation
    Each data subject shall have the right granted by the Euro­pean legis­lator to obtain from the controller the confir­ma­tion as to whether or not personal data concerning him or her are being processed.

    Further­more, the data subject shall have a right to obtain infor­ma­tion as to whether personal data are trans­ferred to a third country or to an inter­na­tional organ­i­sa­tion. Where this is the case, the data subject shall have the right to be informed of the appro­priate safe­guards relating to the transfer.

    If a data subject wishes to avail himself of this right of access, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
    c) Right to rectification
    Each data subject shall have the right granted by the Euro­pean legis­lator to obtain from the controller without undue delay the recti­fi­ca­tion of inac­cu­rate personal data concerning him or her. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject shall have the right to have incom­plete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supple­men­tary statement.If a data subject wishes to exer­cise this right to recti­fi­ca­tion, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.

  • d) Right to erasure (Right to be forgotten)
    Each data subject shall have the right granted by the Euro­pean legis­lator to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning him or her without undue delay, and the controller shall have the oblig­a­tion to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies, as long as the processing is not necessary:
    • The personal data are no longer neces­sary in rela­tion to the purposes for which they were collected or other­wise processed.
    • The data subject with­draws consent to which the processing is based according to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, and where there is no other legal ground for the processing.
    • The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR and there are no over­riding legit­i­mate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) of the GDPR.
    • The personal data have been unlaw­fully processed.
    • The personal data must be erased for compli­ance with a legal oblig­a­tion in Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
    • The personal data have been collected in rela­tion to the offer of infor­ma­tion society services referred to in Article 8(1) of the GDPR.

    If one of the afore­men­tioned reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to request the erasure of personal data stored by the Mogli, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller. An employee of Mogli shall promptly ensure that the erasure request is complied with immediately.

    Where the controller has made personal data public and is obliged pursuant to Article 17(1) to erase the personal data, the controller, taking account of avail­able tech­nology and the cost of imple­men­ta­tion, shall take reason­able steps, including tech­nical measures, to inform other controllers processing the personal data that the data subject has requested erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or repli­ca­tion of, those personal data, as far as processing is not required. An employees of the Mogli will arrange the neces­sary measures in indi­vidual cases.

  • e) Right of restric­tion of processing
    Each data subject shall have the right granted by the Euro­pean legis­lator to obtain from the controller restric­tion of processing where one of the following applies:
    • The accu­racy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accu­racy of the personal data.
    • The processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests instead the restric­tion of their use instead.
    • The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the data subject for the estab­lish­ment, exer­cise or defence of legal claims.
    • The data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR pending the veri­fi­ca­tion whether the legit­i­mate grounds of the controller over­ride those of the data subject.

    If one of the afore­men­tioned condi­tions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restric­tion of the processing of personal data stored by the Mogli, he or she may at any time contact any employee of the controller. The employee of the Mogli will arrange the restric­tion of the processing.

  • f) Right to data portability
    Each data subject shall have the right granted by the Euro­pean legis­lator, to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which was provided to a controller, in a struc­tured, commonly used and machine-read­able format. He or she shall have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, as long as the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, and the processing is carried out by auto­mated means, as long as the processing is not neces­sary for the perfor­mance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exer­cise of offi­cial authority vested in the controller.Furthermore, in exer­cising his or her right to data porta­bility pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject shall have the right to have personal data trans­mitted directly from one controller to another, where tech­ni­cally feasible and when doing so does not adversely affect the rights and free­doms of others.In order to assert the right to data porta­bility, the data subject may at any time contact any employee of the Mogli.
  • g) Right to object
    Each data subject shall have the right granted by the Euro­pean legis­lator to object, on grounds relating to his or her partic­ular situ­a­tion, at any time, to processing of personal data concerning him or her, which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.The Mogli shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objec­tion, unless we can demon­strate compelling legit­i­mate grounds for the processing which over­ride the inter­ests, rights and free­doms of the data subject, or for the estab­lish­ment, exer­cise or defence of legal claims.If the Mogli processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing. This applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to the Mogli to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the Mogli will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.In addi­tion, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her partic­ular situ­a­tion, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her by the Mogli for scien­tific or histor­ical research purposes, or for statis­tical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless the processing is neces­sary for the perfor­mance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.In order to exer­cise the right to object, the data subject may contact any employee of the Mogli. In addi­tion, the data subject is free in the context of the use of infor­ma­tion society services, and notwith­standing Direc­tive 2002/58/EC, to use his or her right to object by auto­mated means using tech­nical specifications.
  • h) Auto­mated indi­vidual deci­sion-making, including profiling
    Each data subject shall have the right granted by the Euro­pean legis­lator not to be subject to a deci­sion based solely on auto­mated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her, or simi­larly signif­i­cantly affects him or her, as long as the deci­sion (1) is not is neces­sary for entering into, or the perfor­mance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) is not autho­rised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suit­able measures to safe­guard the data subject’s rights and free­doms and legit­i­mate inter­ests, or (3) is not based on the data subject’s explicit consent.If the deci­sion (1) is neces­sary for entering into, or the perfor­mance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) it is based on the data subject’s explicit consent, the Mogli shall imple­ment suit­able measures to safe­guard the data subject’s rights and free­doms and legit­i­mate inter­ests, at least the right to obtain human inter­ven­tion on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and contest the decision.If the data subject wishes to exer­cise the rights concerning auto­mated indi­vidual deci­sion-making, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the Mogli.
  • i) Right to with­draw data protec­tion consent
    Each data subject shall have the right granted by the Euro­pean legis­lator to with­draw his or her consent to processing of his or her personal data at any time.If the data subject wishes to exer­cise the right to with­draw the consent, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the Mogli.

9. Data protec­tion provi­sions about the appli­ca­tion and use of Facebook
On this website, the controller has inte­grated compo­nents of the enter­prise Face­book. Face­book is a social network.

A social network is a place for social meet­ings on the Internet, an online commu­nity, which usually allows users to commu­ni­cate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network may serve as a plat­form for the exchange of opin­ions and expe­ri­ences, or enable the Internet commu­nity to provide personal or busi­ness-related infor­ma­tion. Face­book allows social network users to include the creation of private profiles, upload photos, and network through friend requests.

The oper­ating company of Face­book is Face­book, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, United States. If a person lives outside of the United States or Canada, the controller is the Face­book Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

With each call-up to one of the indi­vidual pages of this Internet website, which is oper­ated by the controller and into which a Face­book compo­nent (Face­book plug-ins) was inte­grated, the web browser on the infor­ma­tion tech­nology system of the data subject is auto­mat­i­cally prompted to down­load display of the corre­sponding Face­book compo­nent from Face­book through the Face­book compo­nent. An overview of all the Face­book Plug-ins may be accessed under https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. During the course of this tech­nical proce­dure, Face­book is made aware of what specific sub-site of our website was visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Face­book, Face­book detects with every call-up to our website by the data subject—and for the entire dura­tion of their stay on our Internet site—which specific sub-site of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This infor­ma­tion is collected through the Face­book compo­nent and asso­ci­ated with the respec­tive Face­book account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Face­book buttons inte­grated into our website, e.g. the “Like” button, or if the data subject submits a comment, then Face­book matches this infor­ma­tion with the personal Face­book user account of the data subject and stores the personal data.

Face­book always receives, through the Face­book compo­nent, infor­ma­tion about a visit to our website by the data subject, when­ever the data subject is logged in at the same time on Face­book during the time of the call-up to our website. This occurs regard­less of whether the data subject clicks on the Face­book compo­nent or not. If such a trans­mis­sion of infor­ma­tion to Face­book is not desir­able for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their Face­book account before a call-up to our website is made.

The data protec­tion guide­line published by Face­book, which is avail­able at https://facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides infor­ma­tion about the collec­tion, processing and use of personal data by Face­book. In addi­tion, it is explained there what setting options Face­book offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addi­tion, different config­u­ra­tion options are made avail­able to allow the elim­i­na­tion of data trans­mis­sion to Face­book. These appli­ca­tions may be used by the data subject to elim­i­nate a data trans­mis­sion to Facebook.

10. Data protec­tion provi­sions about the appli­ca­tion and use of Google Analytics (with anonymiza­tion function)

On this website, the controller has inte­grated the compo­nent of Google Analytics (with the anonymizer func­tion). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collec­tion, gath­ering, and analysis of data about the behavior of visi­tors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what dura­tion a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the opti­miza­tion of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The oper­ator of the Google Analytics compo­nent is Google Inc., 1600 Amphithe­atre Pkwy, Moun­tain View, CA 94043–1351, United States.

For the web analytics through Google Analytics the controller uses the appli­ca­tion “_gat. _anonymizeIp”. By means of this appli­ca­tion the IP address of the Internet connec­tion of the data subject is abridged by Google and anonymised when accessing our websites from a Member State of the Euro­pean Union or another Contracting State to the Agree­ment on the Euro­pean Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics compo­nent is to analyze the traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and infor­ma­tion, inter alia, to eval­uate the use of our website and to provide online reports, which show the activ­i­ties on our websites, and to provide other services concerning the use of our Internet site for us.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the infor­ma­tion tech­nology system of the data subject. The defi­n­i­tion of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the indi­vidual pages of this Internet site, which is oper­ated by the controller and into which a Google Analytics compo­nent was inte­grated, the Internet browser on the infor­ma­tion tech­nology system of the data subject will auto­mat­i­cally submit data through the Google Analytics compo­nent for the purpose of online adver­tising and the settle­ment of commis­sions to Google. During the course of this tech­nical proce­dure, the enter­prise Google gains knowl­edge of personal infor­ma­tion, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to under­stand the origin of visi­tors and clicks, and subse­quently create commis­sion settlements.

The cookie is used to store personal infor­ma­tion, such as the access time, the loca­tion from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website by the data subject. With each visit to our Internet site, such personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, will be trans­mitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the tech­nical proce­dure to third parties.

The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corre­sponding adjust­ment of the web browser used and thus perma­nently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjust­ment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the infor­ma­tion tech­nology system of the data subject.

11. Data protec­tion provi­sions about the appli­ca­tion and use of Instagram

On this website, the controller has inte­grated compo­nents of the service Insta­gram. Insta­gram is a service that may be qual­i­fied as an audio­vi­sual plat­form, which allows users to share photos and videos, as well as dissem­i­nate such data in other social networks.

The oper­ating company of the services offered by Insta­gram is Insta­gram LLC, 1 Hacker Way, Building 14 First Floor, Menlo Park, CA, UNITED STATES.

With each call-up to one of the indi­vidual pages of this Internet site, which is oper­ated by the controller and on which an Insta­gram compo­nent (Insta button) was inte­grated, the Internet browser on the infor­ma­tion tech­nology system of the data subject is auto­mat­i­cally prompted to the down­load of a display of the corre­sponding Insta­gram compo­nent of Insta­gram. During the course of this tech­nical proce­dure, Insta­gram becomes aware of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Insta­gram, Insta­gram detects with every call-up to our website by the data subject—and for the entire dura­tion of their stay on our Internet site—which specific sub-page of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This infor­ma­tion is collected through the Insta­gram compo­nent and is asso­ci­ated with the respec­tive Insta­gram account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Insta­gram buttons inte­grated on our website, then Insta­gram matches this infor­ma­tion with the personal Insta­gram user account of the data subject and stores the personal data.

Insta­gram receives infor­ma­tion via the Insta­gram compo­nent that the data subject has visited our website provided that the data subject is logged in at Insta­gram at the time of the call to our website. This occurs regard­less of whether the person clicks on the Insta­gram button or not. If such a trans­mis­sion of infor­ma­tion to Insta­gram is not desir­able for the data subject, then he or she can prevent this by logging off from their Insta­gram account before a call-up to our website is made.

Further infor­ma­tion and the applic­able data protec­tion provi­sions of Insta­gram may be retrieved under https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388 and https://www.instagram.com/about/legal/privacy/.

12. Data protec­tion provi­sions about the appli­ca­tion and use of YouTube

On this website, the controller has inte­grated compo­nents of YouTube. YouTube is an Internet video portal that enables video publishers to set video clips and other users free of charge, which also provides free viewing, review and commenting on them. YouTube allows you to publish all kinds of videos, so you can access both full movies and TV broad­casts, as well as music videos, trailers, and videos made by users via the Internet portal.

The oper­ating company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, UNITED STATES. The YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphithe­atre Pkwy, Moun­tain View, CA 94043–1351, UNITED STATES.

With each call-up to one of the indi­vidual pages of this Internet site, which is oper­ated by the controller and on which a YouTube compo­nent (YouTube video) was inte­grated, the Internet browser on the infor­ma­tion tech­nology system of the data subject is auto­mat­i­cally prompted to down­load a display of the corre­sponding YouTube compo­nent. Further infor­ma­tion about YouTube may be obtained under https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/en/. During the course of this tech­nical proce­dure, YouTube and Google gain knowl­edge of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in on YouTube, YouTube recog­nizes with each call-up to a sub-page that contains a YouTube video, which specific sub-page of our Internet site was visited by the data subject. This infor­ma­tion is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respec­tive YouTube account of the data subject.

YouTube and Google will receive infor­ma­tion through the YouTube compo­nent that the data subject has visited our website, if the data subject at the time of the call to our website is logged in on YouTube; this occurs regard­less of whether the person clicks on a YouTube video or not. If such a trans­mis­sion of this infor­ma­tion to YouTube and Google is not desir­able for the data subject, the delivery may be prevented if the data subject logs off from their own YouTube account before a call-up to our website is made.

YouTube’s data protec­tion provi­sions, avail­able at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/, provide infor­ma­tion about the collec­tion, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.

13. Payment Method: Data protec­tion provi­sions about the use of PayPal as a payment processor

On this website, the controller has inte­grated compo­nents of PayPal. PayPal is an online payment service provider. Payments are processed via so-called PayPal accounts, which repre­sent virtual private or busi­ness accounts. PayPal is also able to process virtual payments through credit cards when a user does not have a PayPal account. A PayPal account is managed via an e‑mail address, which is why there are no classic account numbers. PayPal makes it possible to trigger online payments to third parties or to receive payments. PayPal also accepts trustee func­tions 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 data subject chooses “PayPal” as the payment option in the online shop during the ordering process, we auto­mat­i­cally transmit the data of the data subject to PayPal. By selecting this payment option, the data subject agrees to the transfer of personal data required for payment processing.

The personal data trans­mitted to PayPal is usually first name, last name, address, email address, IP address, tele­phone number, mobile phone number, or other data neces­sary for payment processing. The processing of the purchase contract also requires such personal data, which are in connec­tion with the respec­tive order.

The trans­mis­sion of the data is aimed at payment processing and fraud preven­tion. The controller will transfer personal data to PayPal, in partic­ular, if a legit­i­mate interest in the trans­mis­sion is given. The personal data exchanged between PayPal and the controller for the processing of the data will be trans­mitted by PayPal to economic credit agen­cies. This trans­mis­sion is intended for iden­tity and cred­it­wor­thi­ness checks.

PayPal will, if neces­sary, pass on personal data to affil­i­ates and service providers or subcon­trac­tors to the extent that this is neces­sary to fulfill contrac­tual oblig­a­tions or for data to be processed in the order.

The data subject has the possi­bility to revoke consent for the handling of personal data at any time from PayPal. A revo­ca­tion shall not have any effect on personal data which must be processed, used or trans­mitted in accor­dance with (contrac­tual) payment processing.

The applic­able data protec­tion provi­sions of PayPal may be retrieved under https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full.

14. Legal basis for the processing

Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing oper­a­tions for 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 party, as is the case, for example, when processing oper­a­tions are neces­sary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing oper­a­tions which are neces­sary for carrying out pre-contrac­tual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our prod­ucts or services. Is our company subject to a legal oblig­a­tion by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfill­ment of tax oblig­a­tions, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be neces­sary to protect the vital inter­ests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company 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(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing oper­a­tions could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing oper­a­tions which are not covered by any of the above­men­tioned legal grounds, if processing is neces­sary for the purposes of the legit­i­mate inter­ests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such inter­ests are over­ridden by the inter­ests or funda­mental rights and free­doms of the data subject which require protec­tion of personal data. Such processing oper­a­tions are partic­u­larly permis­sible because they have been specif­i­cally mentioned by the Euro­pean legis­lator. He consid­ered that a legit­i­mate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

15. The legit­i­mate inter­ests pursued by the controller or by a third party
Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legit­i­mate interest is to carry out our busi­ness in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.

16. Period for which the personal data will be stored
The criteria used to deter­mine the period of storage of personal data is the respec­tive statu­tory reten­tion period. After expi­ra­tion of that period, the corre­sponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer neces­sary for the fulfill­ment of the contract or the initi­a­tion of a contract.

17. Provi­sion of personal data as statu­tory or contrac­tual require­ment; Require­ment neces­sary to enter into a contract; Oblig­a­tion of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible conse­quences of failure to provide such data
We clarify that the provi­sion of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regu­la­tions) or can also result from contrac­tual provi­sions (e.g. infor­ma­tion on the contrac­tual partner). Some­times it may be neces­sary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which must subse­quently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provi­sion of the personal data would have the conse­quence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact any employee. The employee clar­i­fies to the data subject whether the provi­sion of the personal data is required by law or contract or is neces­sary for the conclu­sion of the contract, whether there is an oblig­a­tion to provide the personal data and the conse­quences of non-provi­sion of the personal data.

18. Exis­tence of auto­mated decision-making
As a respon­sible company, we do not use auto­matic deci­sion-making or profiling.
