3. Personal Data

“Personal data” shall include all information based on which individuals are identifiable, that is, information which can be traced back to individuals.

5. Contact

The provision of your personal data on this website is not mandatory – neither legally nor contractually. You are not obliged to specify any personal data on this website, unless we point this out in individual cases within the scope of this privacy statement. Nevertheless, the provision and functions of this website and the ordering process require the processing of your individual-related data.

6. Cookies

Cookies are small text files which the relevant browser stores on the device when accessing our Website. This way, individual Website services can “recognize” you and “learn” which settings you selected. Cookies enhance website user-friendliness (such as by saving log-on data), but they also help to collect statistical website usage data and we use such data for analysis and advertisement purposes. Some cookies will be automatically deleted from your device once you leave the website (“session cookies”); others are stored for definite periods of less than two years (“persistent cookies”). We also use third-party cookies managed by third parties to provide certain services. They can influence the use of cookies. Most browsers have an option for totally or partially preventing cookies from being stored. However, we point out that this may restrict website usage and user-friendliness.

7. Automatic Access Data/Server Logfiles Collection

With each website access we automatically collect a series of technical data which must be deemed personal data, and which include
• the user’s IP address
• the name of the accessed website and/or file
• date and time of access
• transferred quantity of data
• successful access notification
• browser type and the user’s operating system version, including the MAC address
• referrer URL (the website accessed before).
These data will not be combined with other personal data which you actively provide on the website. Server logfiles containing the above data will be automatically deleted after 30 days. We reserve the right to save them for longer if there is reason to believe that unauthorized accesses (hacking attempts or DoS attacks) occurred.

8. What is an IP Address?

Each device (such as smartphones, tablet/desktop computers) connected to the internet is assigned an IP address which depends on the internet access through which your device is connected. This may be an IP address assigned by your internet provider if you connect through your Wi-Fi network at home, but it may as well be an IP address assigned by your mobile communications provider or that from public or private Wi-Fi networks or other internet accesses. In its most common version (IPv4), IP addresses consist of four groups of digits separated by full stops. Mostly, private users use alternating IP addresses since providers assign them only for a limited time (“dynamic IP addresses”). Permanently assigned IP addresses (“static IP addresses”) theoretically enable clear user data allocation through this feature. Except for prosecuting unauthorized accesses, we do not use such data on a person-related basis, but we analyze them in an anonymous way to see which of our websites are accessed most each day and similar things.

9. Ways of contacting us on our website

The website contains information deriving from legal obligations which allow quick electronical access to our company which also comprises a general e-mail address. As soon as you are contacting the person responsible via e-mail or web-interface, your submitted, personal data is being saved automatically. This information, submitted on a voluntary basis, is stored for the purpose of processing your data or contacting you. There is no transfer of individual-related data to third parties.
The details given within the process of contacting us are being processed on the basis of art. 6, section 1, as well as DSGVO. This permission allows the processing of personal information within the scope of “legitimate interest” of the responsible, as long as your fundamental rights and freedoms or interests prevail. Our justified interest consists in the processing of making contact. You can disagree with this data handling at any time, subject to the condition that there are reasons for your special situation which speak against the data processing in an e-mail to the address mentioned above.
The personal data given within the scope of making contact will be deleted as soon as the request involved has been solved entirely and any concrete future contacting is not expected.

10. Ordering process

We have prepared a request form for you to order the MiFID-Recorder through our web page. All the personal details entered into the query form will be transferred to us and stored on our database when placing your order. The transmission will be SSL-encrypted.

Additionally, the company, VAT-n° and address of the ordering enterprise needs to be provided. Furthermore, besides your IP-address also the specific time of your order entry will be stored. Within the scope of this dispatch we are referring to this data protection regulation. For your own safety we are using the Double-Opt-In procedure for the verification of your indicated e-mail address. When sending the form, the details communicated by you will solely be processed in order to deal with your request. These details are needed to get in touch with you and to carry out the ordering process initiated by you with regard to a conclusion of the contract. There will be no transfer of this data to a third party. The legal grounds for this processing are stated in art. 6, section 1 lit. b) DSGVO (= German privacy agreement, for the purpose of the contract negotiations and implementation of the contract. The data submitted are being deleted as soon as they are no longer mandatory for the attainment of purpose. At the conclusion of a contract the data will be stored and processed for contract implementation throughout the duration of the contractual relationship. In this case, after contract termination, there will be at first limited remaining processing of your personal details. They will only be processed with your approval on a case-by-case basis, otherwise solely stored in compliance with legal obligations – particularly retention requirements from commercial and fiscal law, up to 10 years. After expiration of these time limits, the data will be deleted irreversibly.

12. Implementation and utilization of Google AdWords

We use the “Google AdWords” online advertisement tool and, in the context of Google AdWords, conversion tracking tools. Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States; “Google”).
If you click on any advertisements displayed by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is installed on your computer.
These cookies become invalid after 30 days, they do not contain personal data and serve no personal identification purposes. If you visit certain pages on our Website and if the cookie is still valid, Google and we recognize that you clicked on the advertisement and were transferred to our Website.
Each Google AdWords customer is assigned another cookie so that is it impossible to trace cookies back through websites from AdWords customers. Data collected through conversion cookies have the purpose of creating conversion statistics for AdWords customers who opted for the conversion tracking service. The customers get to know the total number of users who clicked on the advertisement and who were transferred to pages having a conversion tracking tag. However, they receive no information through which they can identify any users.
The processing of individual-related data through GoogleAdWord is grounded on the German data protection regulation, art 6, section 1. This permits the processing of individual related data within the scope of “legitimate interest” of the parties responsible, as far as your fundamental rights and freedoms do not predominate.
Our legitimate interest consists in the personalized display of targeted promotion and the statistical analysis of the promotion’s efficiency (e.g. by tracing the number of clicks on banner ads has led to a purchase on our website).
If you do not want to participate in this tracking service, you may reject their usage by preventing cookie installation based on your browser settings (option for deactivation).
If you do so, you will not be included in conversion tracking statistics. For more information and the Google Data Protection Declaration, please refer to http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/ and http://www.google.de/policies/privacy/

13. Implementation and use of Google Remarketing

The party responsible has implemented Google Remarketing Services on this website. Google Remarketing enables companies to insert web-ads after web-users have visited the web-page of the relevant company. The implementation of Google Remarketing allows a company to create user-related advertising and to subsequently show it according to the interests of the respective internet-user.
Operating company of Google Remarketing: Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The purpose of Google Remarketing is the inclusion of interest-specific advertising. Google Remarketing makes it possible to show web-ads over the Google-network or on other webpages which are customized to the user’s needs and interests.
Google Remarketing stores a cookie on your device. Cookies have been explained before. With the use of a cookie Google can recognize visitors of our webpage if the user accesses webpages which are also members of the Google-web-ad-network.
With every website being called up which is linked to the services of Google Remarketing your browser automatically identifies with Google. Within the scope of this technical procedure Google collects knowledge regarding individual-related data, such as the IP-address or the user’s browsing behavior which Google mainly uses for interest-related advertising.
The processing of individual-related data through Google Remarketing is based on the German data protection regulation, art. 6, section 1. This general permission allows the processing of individual-related data within the scope of legitimate interest of the parties responsible, as long as your basic rights and freedoms or interests do not prevail. Our justified interest consists in the personalized display of targeted advertising.
You can prevent at any time the setting of cookies through our webpage, as shown above, by making a corresponding amendment on your web browser and therefore disagree with the setting of cookies permanently. Such a browser setting also prevents Google from storing cookies on your electronic device. Additionally, cookies already set can be deleted via your internet browser or other software programs.

14. Duration of Data Storage

We store personal data only so long as this is necessary for rendering requested or agreed services, unless the law provides otherwise. Data retention periods to which we are subject result from accounting provisions (sec. 257 HGB [German Commercial Code]) and tax provisions (sec. 147 AO [German Tax Code] and sec. 14b UStG [German Value-Added Tax Code]). Under these provisions, business communication, contracts and accounting entries must be stored for up to ten years. Provided that we no longer require such data for service provision purposes, they will be deleted which means that such data may then only be used for accounting and tax purposes.
