This is particularly the case if the data processing is necessary for the fulfillment of our contractual services (e.g. for the processing of orders and requests) and our online services or is required by law, if the users have given their consent or if it is based on our legitimate interests. Legitimate interests include the analysis, optimization, security, and economic operation of our online services.

(7) We point out that the legal basis of the consents (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a) and Art. 7 GDPR), the legal basis for the processing for the fulfilment of our services and implementation of contractual measures (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b) GDPR), the legal basis for processing to fulfil our legal obligations (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c) GDPR) and the legal basis for processing to protect our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR).

II. Security measures

(1) We take appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk in accordance with Article 32 of the GDPR, taking into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, circumstances and purposes of the processing, as well as the varying likelihood and severity of the risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons.

III. Data Dissemination to Third Parties and Third-Party Suppliers

(1) Insofar as we disclose data to other persons and companies (processors or third parties) within the scope of our processing, transmit it to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this shall only be done on the basis of legal permission. This applies, for example, if the data is transferred to third parties (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b) GDPR), if this is necessary for the performance of a contract, if you have consented (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a) and Art. 7 GDPR), a legal obligation provides for this (Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. c) GDPR) or on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR), e.g. when using agents, web hosts, etc.

(2) If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union or the European Economic Area) or if this occurs in the context of the use of third-party services or the disclosure or transfer of data to third parties, this will also only take place if the special requirements of Art. 44 et seq. GDPR are fulfilled. This means that the processing is carried out, for example, on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognised determination of a level of data protection corresponding to the EU or in compliance with officially recognised special contractual obligations (so-called “standard data protection clauses”).

(3) If we commission third parties with the processing of data in terms of a so-called ‘data-processing contract’, this will be on the basis of Art. 28 of the GDPR.

IV. Collection of access data and log files

(1) We collect data on every access to the server on which this service is located (so-called server log files) on the basis of our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR. This data is technically necessary to display the respective website to you and to ensure stability and security. The access data includes, in particular, the name of the website accessed, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, the website previously visited and the IP address.

(2) Log file information shall be saved for a maximum of seven days for security reasons (e. g. clarification of acts of misuse or fraud) and shall be erased afterwards. Data which must be retained for longer periods for the purpose of evidence are exempted from erasure until the respective incident has been cleared up definitively.

V. Provision of contractually-agreed services

(1) We process inventory, contact, contract and content data for the purpose of fulfilling our contractual obligations and services pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 lit b) GDPR. The entries marked as mandatory in online forms are required for the conclusion of the contract.


(2) User data may be stored in our customer relationship management system (CRM system). We use the HubSpot service of the service provider HubSpot, Inc., 25 First St., 2nd floor, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02141, USA for this purpose. Hubspot is an integrated software solution that we use to cover various aspects of our online marketing. These include: Contact Management (e.g. user segmentation & CRM), email marketing and contact forms.
We have concluded a commissioned processing agreement with the service providers in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. In addition, in the event of data transfer to third countries subject to data protection law, suitable guarantees exist for the protection of data subjects within the meaning of Article 46 (1) GDPR through the conclusion of standard data protection clauses and including the performance of a data transfer impact assessment pursuant to Article 46 (2) (c) GDPR. In this regard, we would like to expressly point out any risks, for example the more difficult enforcement of data subject rights under data protection law.
Further information regarding data processing by HubSpot is available in the company’s data protection information.


(3) Users who make use of our software service must register and create a user account in which they can, among other things, view the licence they have booked and their invoices.

As a matter of principle, this data is not passed on to third parties unless it is necessary to pursue our claims or there is a legal obligation to do so. The data is automatically deleted after 7 days.

(5) The registration data collected will be deleted as soon as processing is no longer necessary. This usually happens when you stop (terminate) using our offered product. However, we must observe tax and commercial retention periods. The erasure of data to provide contractually agreed services shall take place after expiry of statutory and comparable obligations. If statutory archiving obligations apply, the data shall be erased when these obligations expire (end of retention requirement acc. to commercial (6 years) or tax law (10 years)). Entries in any customer account remain there until they are deleted.

If the data is no longer required for the fulfilment of the purposes, it is regularly deleted, unless its further processing for a limited period is necessary (intervention of legal retention periods).

VII. Comments

In the login area of our software service, certain users (e.g. consultants, vets) with access to the business of a user can leave corresponding comments. In this case, also the name of the commenting user is listed, but not published, since the comment is only intended for the specific user. When collecting log file information, also the IP address of the commenting user will be stored for 7 days; see section 4 of this privacy policy.

VIII. Newsletter

(1) On our website you have the possibility to register for our topic-related newsletters and mailings. To register, it is sufficient to enter your e-mail address. In order to enable a personal address, we ask you to enter your first and/or last name. The personal data that will also be transmitted to us can be seen from the input mask used for this purpose. If the contents are specifically described in the context of a registration, they are decisive for the user’s consent. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to receive it and to the procedures described.


(2) The newsletter and e-mails are sent on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 lit. a) GDPR (possibly in conjunction with § 7 Para. 2 No. 3 Unfair Competition Act – German: UWG) or, if consent is not required, on the basis of our legitimate interests in direct marketing in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR.
lit. f) GDPR in conjunction with. § 7 para. 3 of the German Unfair Competition Act (UWG), if and to the extent that this is permitted by law, e.g. in the case of advertising to existing customers.

We have concluded an order processing agreement with the service provider in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. In addition, in the event of data transfer to third countries subject to data protection law, suitable guarantees exist for the protection of data subjects within the meaning of Art. 46 (1) GDPR through the conclusion of standard data protection clauses and including the performance of a data transfer impact assessment pursuant to Art. 46 (2) (c) GDPR.

Further information regarding data processing by HubSpot is available in the company’s data protection information.


(4)

Registration for our newsletter only takes place after prior registration via form. This means that after registration you will receive an e-mail in which you will be informed of your registration and, if you have not registered yourself, you will also find a link to reject the registration. Please therefore also check your spam folder after registering, should our message have been placed there by your provider. Registrations for the newsletter are stored in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time as well as the e-mail address and, if applicable, the name and self-entered information in the form.

The registration process is recorded on the basis of our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR. The registration procedure is recorded for the purpose of proving that it has been carried out properly

(5) You can revoke your consent to receiving our newsletter or emails at any time with future effect by confirming the unsubscribe link at the end of each email.

(6) Based on our legitimate interests, we can save the e-mail addresses we have withdrawn for up to three years before we delete them in order to be able to prove a previously given consent. The processing of this data is limited to the purpose of a possible defense against claims. An individual request for cancellation is possible at any time, provided that the previous consent is confirmed. In the event of obligations to permanently observe contradictions, we reserve the right to save the email address for this purpose only in a blacklist.

IX. Newsletters and email tracking

(1) Our newsletters and mailings contain a so-called “web beacon”, that means a pixel-sized file that is retrieved when the email is opened by the server of our shipping service provider. As part of this retrieval, technical information such as information about the browser and Your system, as well as your IP address and the time of access.

(2) ) This information is used for the technical improvement of our newsletter and our mailing based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior based on their location (which can be determined using the IP address) or the access times. This analysis also includes determining whether the emails are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual recipients. However, it is neither our aim nor, if used, that of the shipping service provider to observe individual users. The evaluations rather serve us to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.

(3) For the analysis, we use the HubSpot service of the service provider HubSpot, Inc., 25 First St., 2nd floor, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02141. We have concluded an agreement on commissioned processing with the service provider in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. In addition, in the event of data transfer to third countries subject to data protection law, suitable guarantees exist for the protection of data subjects within the meaning of Art. 46 (1) GDPR through the conclusion of standard data protection clauses and including the performance of a data transfer impact assessment pursuant to Art. 46 (2) (c) GDPR. In this regard, we would like to expressly point out any risks, for example the more difficult enforcement of data subject rights under data protection law. Further information regarding data processing by HubSpot can be found in the company’s data protection information.


(4) The evaluation of the newsletter and the measurement of its success are carried out, subject to the express consent of the users within the meaning of Article 6 (1) sentence 1 a) of the Data Protection Regulation, on the basis of our legitimate interests pursuant to Article 6 (1) sentence 1 f) of the Data Protection Regulation for the purpose of using a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that both serves our business interests and meets the expectations of the users.

(5) A separate revocation of the success measurement is unfortunately not possible, in this case the entire subscription to the newsletter must be canceled or objected to.

Cookies

(1) We use cookie technology for our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your end device, as assigned accordingly by the browser that you use, which allow the entity that places the cookie (in this case, us) to then receive certain information. Cookies cannot run programs or transmit viruses to your computer. Their purpose is to make the overall web offering more user-friendly and effective.

(2) We use transient and persistent cookies. Transient cookies are automatically erased when you close your browser. These include, in particular, session cookies. These store what is referred to as the “session ID”, by which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the shared session. This will allow your end device to be recognised if you return to our website. Session cookies will be erased as soon as you close your browser. Persistent cookies are stored by your end device between browser sessions so that your interest or actions can be saved across the use of several websites.

(3) You can erase the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time. Furthermore, you can configure your browser setting according to your requirements and can, for example, decline the acceptance of third party cookies or any cookies at all. Please note that in this case, you may not be able to use all of the functions of our website.

XI. Google Analytics

(1) On the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a) GDPR and with regard to the setting of cookies pursuant to § 25 para. 1 of the German Teleservices Data Protection Act (“TTDSG”) in conjunction with Art. 4 No. 11, Art. 7 GDPR we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”). For this purpose, an order processing contract has been concluded with Google in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. In addition, in the event of data transfer to the parent company Google LLC – based in the USA – suitable guarantees exist for the protection of data subjects within the meaning of Article 46 (1) GDPR through the conclusion of standard data protection clauses in accordance with Article 46 (2) (c) GDPR. Your declaration of consent also expressly includes the possible global transfer and processing of data by other group companies of Google LLC. In this regard, we would like to expressly point out any risks, for example, the more difficult enforcement of data subject rights under data protection law.

(2) Google Analytics uses cookies or comparable technologies to process usage data (e.g. visited websites, access times) and communication data (e.g. IP addresses, device information) on our behalf in order to evaluate the use of our online service, compile reports on activities within our online service and provide other services associated with the use of our online service. It is also possible to create pseudonymous user profiles.

(3) Google Analytics is used exclusively by means of IP anonymisation. All processed personal data is deleted or completely anonymised after 14 months. We have concluded an agreement with Google for order processing in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. Further information on the use of data by Google, setting and objection options, can be found in the Google data protection declaration and in the settings for the display of advertising by Google.

(4) We use Google Analytics in order to display the advertisements placed within the advertising services of Google and its partners only to those users who have also shown an interest in our online offer or who exhibit certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited) which we transmit to Google (so-called “remarketing” or “Google Analytics Audiences”). With the help of remarketing audiences, we also want to ensure that our advertisements correspond to the potential interest of the users and are not annoying.

XII. Google-Re/Marketing-Services

(1) We use the marketing and remarketing services of Google Ireland Limited (“Google”) on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit a.) GDPR as well as with regard to the setting of cookies pursuant to § 25 para. 1 of the German Teleservices Data Protection Act (“TTDSG”) in conjunction with Art. 4 No. 11, Art. 7 of the GDPR the marketing and remarketing services (in short “Google marketing services”) of Google Ireland Limited (“Google”). For this purpose, an order processing contract has been concluded with Google in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. In addition, in the event of data transfer to the parent company Google LLC – based in the USA – suitable guarantees exist for the protection of data subjects within the meaning of Article 46 (1) GDPR through the conclusion of standard data protection clauses in accordance with Article 46 (2) (c) GDPR. Your declaration of consent also expressly includes the possible global transfer and processing of data by other group companies of Google LLC. In this regard, we would like to expressly point out any risks, for example, the more difficult enforcement of data subject rights under data protection law.

(2) The Google Marketing Services allow us to display ads for and on our website in a more targeted manner to present only ads to users which potentially correspond to their interests. If e. g. ads are displayed for products in which a user has shown interest on other webpages, this is called “remarketing”. For this purpose, a Google code is executed directly by Google when our web pages and other web pages on which Google Marketing Services are active are accessed and so-called (re)marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also referred to as “web beacons”) are embedded. With the help of these tags, an individual cookie, i.e. a small file, is saved on the user’s device (instead of cookies other comparable technologies may also be used). Cookies can be set by various domains including google.com, doubleclick.net, invitemedia.com, admeld.com, googlesyndication.com or googleadservices.com. The web pages visited by the user, the content they are interested in, the offers they clicked on as well as technical information on browser and operating system, referring web sites, duration of the visit and other information regarding the usage of the online services are stored in this file. In addition, the user’s IP address is recorded. In this regard, we inform you within the scope of Google Analytics that the IP address is abbreviated in EU member states or other states in the European Economic Area and is only transmitted as a whole to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there in exceptional cases. The IP address will not be matched with data of the user within other services provided by Google. Google may connect the above information to corresponding information from other sources. If the user subsequently visits other web pages, ads which are adjusted to their interests can be displayed.

(3) The data of the users will be processed pseudonymously within the scope of Google Marketing Services. This means that Google saves and processes e. g. not the user’s name or email address, but the relevant data based on cookies in pseudonymous user profiles. This means that from Google’s point of view, the ads are not managed and displayed for an actually identified person but for cookie owners independent of the identity of the cookie owner. This does not apply if a user has expressly allowed Google to process data without pseudonymisation. The information which Google Marketing Services has collected on the user are transmitted to Google and saved on Google servers in the USA.

(4) Google Marketing Services we use include the online advertising program “Google Ads” and others. In case of Google Ads, each Ads customer receives a different “conversion cookie”. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of Ads customers. The information which was obtained with the help of the cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who opted for conversion tracking. Ads customers receive information on the total number of users who clicked on their advertisement and were referred to a page with a conversion tracking tag. They do not, however, receive any information which can be used for the personal identification of users.

(5) Further information on data use for marketing purposes by Google can be found on the overview page: https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads. For more information on Google’s use of data, settings and opt-out options, please refer to Google’s privacy policy. If you wish to object to interest-based advertising by Google marketing services, you can use the settings and opt-out options provided by Google, see https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated.

XVII. Google Tag Manager

Google Tag Manager is a tool with which we can manage so-called website tags and thus integrate e.g. Google Analytics and other Google marketing services into our online offer. The Tag Manager itself does not create user profiles or store cookies.
