5. Data Collection on our Website

Cookies

The website sometimes uses what are known as cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer or contain any viruses. Cookies make our offering more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies that we use are what are known as ‘session cookies’. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit.

You can configure your browser so that you are informed of the storage of cookies and to allow cookies only in certain cases, to reject the acceptance of cookies in specific cases or in general, and to enable the automatic deletion of cookies when you close the browser. This website’s functionality may be restricted if you disable cookies.

Cookies that are required for carrying out electronic communication processes or providing certain features desired by you (e.g. shopping cart feature) are stored on the basis of point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to enable the optimal provision of its services, free from any technical defects. If other cookies (e.g. cookies used to analyse your browsing behaviour) are stored, these are addressed separately in this privacy policy.

Server log files

The website provider automatically collects and stores information in what are called server log files, which your browser transmits to us automatically. This is:

  • Browser type and
    browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the
    accessing computer
  • Time of server request
  • IP address

This data is not merged with other data sources.

The basis for the data processing is point (f) of Article 6(1) (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR, which permits data processing for the performance of a contract or to take steps prior to entering into a contract.

Contact Form

When you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details are forwarded to BIG.Cube using the GDPR-compliant API-based email delivery service provided by the German service provider sendinblue GmbH. We store the details you enter in the enquiry form, including the contact details you provide, in order to handle your enquiry and in case of any follow-up questions. We do not share this data without your consent.

The data entered in the contact form is thus processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (point (a) of Article 6(1) GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time. To do so, it is sufficient to send us an informal notification by email. The lawfulness of the data processing procedures carried out before your consent is withdrawn remains unaffected by such withdrawal.

We retain the data you have entered in the contact form until you ask us to erase it, until you withdraw your consent to its storage or until the purpose of the data storage ceases to apply (e.g. once handling of your enquiry is complete). Mandatory legal provisions — particularly retention periods — remain unaffected.

6. Analysis Tools

matomo

Our website uses Matomo (formerly Piwik), which is open-source software used for the statistical analysis of visitor access. We use Matomo cookie-free. The identification of a certain person is therefore impossible because your IP address is anonymised immediately after being processing and before being stored. The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies is point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR. (f) of Article 6(1) . Matomo is used for the purpose of improving the quality of our website and its content. We use it to learn how the website is used and it thus enables us to continuously improve our offering.

7. Integration of social media embeds

We provide social media embeds from the social media networks Instagram and YouTube on our website. Social media embeds are content from social media networks that we integrate into our website so that you do not have to leave it. It is therefore ‘embedded’. This involves the integration of posts, videos or other content from the companies Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd (4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland; however, personal data may also be processed by Meta Platforms Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA), Instagram LLC (1601 Willow Road Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA; however, Facebook is responsible for Instagram under data protection law, see above) and YouTube LLC (901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA; however, Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House Barrow Street Dublin 4, D04E5W5, Ireland, is responsible for data protection and personal data may also be processed by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) on our website.

You can recognise the social media embeds by the relevant company logo next to an image, a post or other content that is clearly external. After activating these social media embeds, you can view the content from the relevant network that we have integrated into our website.

Before you click on the relevant ‘Display content’ button (‘activation button’), the privacy-friendly activation solution that we use prevents your personal data, such as your IP address, from being transmitted to the relevant social media network. Unless you click on the activation button in order to view content, you will not be visible to the operator of the relevant social media network

We use this privacy-friendly alternative (activation solution) to prevent social media networks from tracking and storing Internet activity without the user’s active input.

By clicking the activation button, you declare your consent to your personal data being collected by the relevant network. The relevant social media network is responsible for the data collection and processing that it then carries out, including the use of cookies and similar technologies. As a minimum, you should expect the following: Information on which of our sites you have visited and your IP address will be transmitted to the social media network, even if you do not have a profile/account with the relevant network or are not currently signed in. If you are a member of the social media networks and are signed in, the network attributes the information to your personal user account. We do not receive any of this information.

We therefore recommend that you read the relevant network’s privacy policy before clicking the activation button:

8. Data Sharing

If we share your personal data, particularly within the context of the data processing described above, we have described this accordingly in this privacy policy. Generally, we also share your personal data as follows:

Processor

All personal data processed within the context of this website is processed by us or by our service providers. If necessary, we transmit your personal data to external service providers such as IT service providers and providers of website optimisation services, advertising agencies or analysis service providers to enable us to provide our services to you. We have selected these service providers carefully and concluded data processing agreements with them.

Third parties (known as recipients)

Contract partners

We share your personal data with other controllers that process the personal data for your own purposes when this is required for processing a contract or rendering a service. Our contract partners can only use the data transmitted in this way for the purpose for which it was transmitted.

Your personal data is shared for these purposes in order to perform a contract (point (b) of Article 6(1) GDPR) or on the grounds of our legitimate interests in organising our business efficiently (point (f) (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR).

Credit checks

In justifiable cases (e.g. direct debit procedures), we share data concerning your address and credit history with credit services companies for the purpose of credit checks. The service provider is only given access to the personal data that is required to carry out the relevant activity. The legal basis for this is point (f) of Article 6(1) (legitimate interest).

Legal obligation or enforcement of legal claims

Besides this, we only share your personal data with third parties if and to the extent that this is required or permitted by law, in order to enforce legal claims or in order to investigate or prevent suspected or actual unlawful activities. In such cases, we will inform you of the relevant data transfer, if and to the extent that this is required by law.

Website service providers

Some features of our website require the processing of your personal data by service providers, for which they are also responsible (e.g. in the case of social media interactions (see also the information on social plug-ins in Section 5 in this regard) and for website optimisation in the case of some services). Our contract partners can only use the data transmitted in this way for the purpose for which it was transmitted.

Your personal data is shared for these purposes on the basis of our legitimate interest in providing you with the relevant function. If your consent is required for sharing data with website service providers, we will inform you separately beforehand.

Transfer to third countries
If and when we transfer your personal data to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) or commission processors in such countries (e.g. in the USA), we implement the standards and security mechanisms required by law. We achieve this by agreeing what are known as EU standard contractual clauses, for example. Please contact us as described in Section 2 to find out more about the specific security mechanisms that we use.

Right to rectification and completion

As a data subject, you have the right to obtain without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, you have the right to have incomplete personal data completed.

Right to erasure (‘right to be forgotten’)

As a data subject, you have the right to obtain erasure of your personal data if necessary. For example, that is the case if your personal data is no longer required for the original purposes, if you have withdrawn your declaration of consent under data protection law or if the personal data has been processed unlawfully.

Right to restriction of processing

As a data subject, you have the right to obtain restriction of processing in the legally prescribed cases.

Right to data portability

As a data subject, you have the right to receive the personal data concerning you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format in the legally prescribed cases.

As a data subject, you have the right to object to the processing of specific data concerning you for reasons relating to your particular situation at any time. In the event of direct marketing, you, as a data subject, have the right to object to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing at any time; this also includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.

Right to withdraw your declaration of consent under data protection law

You have the right to revoke your consent to the processing of personal data at any time with effect for the future. The lawfulness of the processing carried out prior to withdrawal remains unaffected by this, however.

Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement if you consider the processing of personal data relating to you to infringe the GDPR.
