Privacy Policy

  1. Introduction

With the following information we would like to give you as a "data subject" an overview of the processing of your personal data by us and your rights under the data protection laws. It is generally possible to use our website without entering personal data. However, if you wish to make use of special services of our company via our website, it may become necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain your consent.

The processing of personal data, such as your name, address or e-mail address, is always carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in compliance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to "dsb ebusiness GmbH". By means of this data protection declaration, we would like to inform you about the scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us.

As data controllers, we have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as completely as possible. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you are free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone or post.

  1. Definitions

The data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European legislator for directives and regulations when the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was adopted. Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.

We use the following terms, among others, in this privacy policy:

  1. Personal Data

Personal data is all information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person. A natural person is regarded as identifiable who, directly or indirectly, in particular by means of assignment to an identifier such as a name, to an identification number, to location data, to an online identifier or to one or more special features that express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person can be identified.

  1. Data Subject

Affected person is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the person responsible for processing (our company).

  1. Processing

Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

  1. Restriction of Processing

Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of restricting their future processing.

  1. Profiling

Profiling is any automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, location or change of location.

  1. Pseudonymisation

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

  1. Data Processor

Data processor is a natural or legal person, authority, institution, or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the person responsible.

  1. Recipient

The recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not that person is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the course of a specific investigation, in accordance with European Union or national law, are not considered to be recipients.

  1. Third Party

A third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the person responsible, the processor and the persons who are authorized to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the person responsible or the data processor.

 

  1. Consent

Consent is any declaration of intent voluntarily given by the person concerned in an informed manner and unequivocally in the form of a declaration or other unequivocal affirmative act with which the person concerned indicates that they consent to the processing of their personal data is.

  1. Legal Basis of the Processing

Art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR (in conjunction with sect. 15 (3) German Telemedia Act) serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.

If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a contract to which you are 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 para. 1 (b) GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are required to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services.

If our company is subject to a legal obligation which makes it necessary to process personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on art. 6 para. 1 (c) GDPR.

In rare cases, the processing of personal data might be necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our site were to be injured and his name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be disclosed to a doctor, hospital or other third party. The processing would then be based on art. 6 (1) (d) GDPR.

Ultimately, processing operations could be based on art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the above legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if you are a customer of our company (recital 47, sentence 2 GDPR).

  1. Transmission of Data to Third Parties

Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those listed below.

We only pass on your personal data to third parties if:

 

  1. you have given your express consent in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 (a) GDPR,
  2. the disclosure is permissible under art. 6 para.1 s. 1 (f) GDPR in order to safeguard our legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in not disclosing your data,
  3. in the event that there is a legal obligation to pass on the data in accordance with article 6 (1) s.1 (c) of the GDPR, and
  4. this is legally permissible and, in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 (b) GDPR, is necessary for the processing of contractual relationships with you.

In order to protect your data and, if necessary, to enable us to transfer data to third countries (outside the EU/EEA), we have concluded agreements on order processing based on the standard contractual clauses of the European Commission.

  1. Technology

7.1 SSL/TLS-Encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login data or contact requests that you send to us as the operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that in the address line of your browser there is a "https://" instead of "http://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

We use this technology to protect the data you transmit.

7.2 Data Collection when Visiting the Website

When using our website for informational purposes only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect the data that your browser sends to our server (in so-called "server log files"). Our website collects a range of general data and information every time you or an automated system access a page. These general data and information are stored in the server log files. The following can be recorded

  1. used browser types and versions,
  2. the operating system used by the accessing system,
  3. the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrer),
  4. the sub-websites, which are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
  5. the date and time of access to the website,
  6. an Internet Protocol (IP) address,
  7. the Internet service provider of the accessing system.

When using this general data and information we do not draw any conclusions about your person. This information is rather required to

  1. to deliver the contents of our website correctly,
  2. to optimise the content of our website and the advertising for it,
  3. to ensure the permanent operability of our IT systems and the technology of our website and
  4. to provide law enforcement authorities with information necessary for law enforcement purposes in the event of a cyber-attack.

The data and information collected are therefore evaluated by us on the one hand statistically and also 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 data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

Our website is hosted by Navigate IT Services GmbH, Waldstr. 41 - 43 in 76133 Karlsruhe/Germany.

The legal basis for data processing is art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the above-mentioned purposes for data collection.

 

  1. Cookies

8.1 General Information on Cookies

We use cookies on our website. These are small files that are automatically created by your browser and stored on your IT system (laptop, tablet, smartphone or similar) when you visit our site.

Information is stored in the cookie, which in each case is related to the specifically used terminal device. This does not mean, however, that we obtain direct knowledge of your identity.

The use of cookies serves on the one hand to make the use of our offer more pleasant for you. For example, we use so-called session cookies to recognise that you have already visited individual pages of our website. These are automatically deleted when you leave our site.

In addition, we also use temporary cookies to optimise user-friendliness, which are stored on your end device for a certain fixed period of time. If you visit our site again to make use of our services, we will automatically recognise that you have already been to our site and the entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.

On the other hand, we use cookies to record the use of our website statistically and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our offer for you. These cookies enable us to automatically recognise that you have already been on our website when you visit it again. These cookies are automatically deleted after a defined time.

 

8.2 Legal Basis for the Use of Cookies

The data processed by cookies, which are required for the proper functioning of the website, are thus necessary to safeguard our legitimate interests and those of third parties in accordance with art. 6 Para. 1 s. 1 (f) of the GDPR.

For all other cookies, you have given your consent to this via our opt-in cookie banner in accordance with art. 6 Para. 1 (a) GDPR.

 

 

  1. Our Activities in Social Networks

In order to be able to communicate with you in social networks and to inform you about our services, we are represented there with our own pages. If you visit one of our social media sites, we are jointly responsible with the provider of the respective social media platform for the processing operations triggered by this, which involve personal data, in accordance with art. 26 GDPR.

We are not the original provider of these sites, but only use them within the scope of the possibilities offered to us by the respective providers.

Therefore, as a precautionary measure we would like to point out that your data may also be processed outside the European Union or the European Economic Area. Any use may therefore involve data protection risks for you, as it may be more difficult to safeguard your rights, e.g. to information, deletion, objection, etc., and processing in the social networks is often carried out directly by the providers for advertising purposes or to analyse user behaviour, without this being able to be influenced by us. If the provider creates user profiles, cookies are often used, or the user behaviour is directly assigned to your own member profile of the social networks (if you are logged in here).

In accordance with art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, the described processing of personal data is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interest and the legitimate interest of the respective provider, in order to be able to communicate with you in a contemporary manner or to inform you about our services. If you have to give your consent to data processing as a user with the respective providers, the legal basis refers to art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR in conjunction with art. 7 GDPR.

As we do not have access to the providers' databases, we would like to point out that it is best to apply your rights (e.g. to information, correction, deletion, etc.) directly to the respective provider. Further information on the processing of your data in the social networks and the possibility to make use of your right of objection or revocation (so-called opt-out) is listed below with the respective provider of social networks we use:

  1. Web Analysis

10.1 Google Analytics

On our websites we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Ireland Limited (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/) (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; hereinafter "Google"). In this context, pseudonymised user profiles are created and cookies (see item "Cookies") are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as

  1. browser type/version,
  2. the operating system used,
  3. referrer URL (the previously visited page),
  4. host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
  5. time of the server request,

are transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services associated with the use of the website and the Internet for the purposes of market research and the design of these Internet pages in line with requirements. This information may also be transferred to third parties if required by law or if third parties process this data on our behalf. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other Google data. The IP addresses are made anonymous, so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking).

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

These processing operations will only be carried out if you have given your express consent in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR.

You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).

As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially in the case of browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link: Deactivate Google Analytics. An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent the future collection of your data when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.

Further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics can be found, for example, in the Google Analytics help (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de).

 

10.2 Matomo

We have integrated the Matomo component of the supplier InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand, on this website. Matomo is a software tool for web analysis, i.e. for the ascertainment, collection, and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, data is collected about the website from which a person concerned came to a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. This is used to optimise the website and for cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The software is operated on the server of the person responsible for processing; the log files which are sensitive in terms of data protection are stored exclusively on this server.

Matomo sets a cookie on your IT system. The setting of the cookie enables us to analyse the use of our website. Every time you call up one of the individual pages of this website, the Internet browser on your IT system is automatically prompted by the Matomo component to transmit data to our server for the purpose of online analysis. In the course of this technical process we obtain knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which serves us, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks.

By means of the cookie, personal information such as the access time, the place from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website is stored. Whenever you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection you are using, is transferred to our server. This personal data is stored by us. We do not pass on this personal data to third parties.

You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding 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 Matomo from setting a cookie on your IT system. In addition, a cookie already set by Matomo can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programmes.

Furthermore, you have the possibility to object to the collection of data generated by Matomo and relating to the use of this website and to prevent such collection. For this you have to set an opt-out cookie. If your IT system is deleted, formatted, or reinstalled at a later date, the person concerned must set an opt-out cookie again. However, with the setting of the opt-out cookie there is a possibility that our Internet pages may no longer be fully usable for you.

These processing operations will only be carried out if you have given your express consent in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR.

Further information and the applicable data protection regulations of Matomo can be found at https://matomo.org/privacy/.

 

  1. Advertising

11.1 Google Conversion-Tracking

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to create visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are in turn used by us to determine the total number of users who have been referred to us. Neither our company nor other advertising customers of Google Ads receive information from Google that could be used to identify you.

The conversion cookie is used to store personal information, for example the websites you visit. Whenever you visit our website, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection you are using, 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 pass on this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.

You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding 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 conversion cookie on your IT system. In addition, an already set cookie can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

These processing operations are only carried out if you have given your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR.

The operating company of the services of Google Ads is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Further information and Google's applicable privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

 

  1. Plugins and Other Services

12.1 Google WebFonts

Our website uses so-called web fonts provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

To do this, the browser you use must connect to Google's servers. This enables Google to know that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our website.

These processing operations are only carried out if you have given your express consent in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR.

Further information on Google Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in the Google data protection declaration: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/
