In the following, we inform you about the handling of your personal data in our company and give you an overview of what happens to your personal data when, for example, you
- visit one of our websites,
- get in touch with us,
- Order a newsletter
- or become a customer with us.
What is personal data
Personal data is any information relating to a natural person. This can be, for example:
- IP address of your computer when visiting a website
- Postal address
- Mail address
- Telephone number
Collection, processing, storage and deletion of personal data
The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 DSGVO, which, among other things, permits the processing of personal data if the data subject has given his/her consent (para. 1a) or if the data are necessary for the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures (para. 1b) or for the protection of legitimate interests (para. 1f).
In order to provide our services, we generally need some of your personal data. This applies to processing individual enquiries, booking events, sending information or offers, ordering newsletters and placing and processing orders.
We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration. Personal electronic data is stored in access-protected databases and directories, non-electronic data is kept in locked files. As a matter of principle, we pay attention to transparency and data minimisation.
The transmission of electronic data by e-mail is not encrypted unless encryption has been agreed in advance between sender and recipient.
We store your personal data insofar as it is necessary for the provision of the service or the execution of the contract and in order to be able to keep you up to date. For this purpose, it may be necessary in individual cases to pass on your personal data to third parties that we use to provide our services or to process the contract. These may include, for example, transport companies, lettershops, credit institutions commissioned to process payments, external consultants and experts or other service partners.
Your data will not be passed on beyond this, for example for advertising purposes for third parties.
After the complete processing of the transaction or contract and after the expiry of the periods stipulated by tax and commercial law, your data will be deleted unless you have become a customer or have expressly consented to any further use - e.g. when subscribing to a newsletter.
If you want to become a customer of ours or are already a customer, we store your data in order to be able to inform you by e-mail, post or telephone about the latest news, new products or services. We do not send information by fax.
The office responsible for data processing on this website is:
Dr. Klinkner & Partner GmbH
Phone: +49 (0) 681 / 982 10 - 0
The use of this contact data published by Dr. Klinkner & Partner GmbH within the scope of its legal obligations for the purpose of sending unsolicited advertising - both by post and by e-mail or fax - is hereby prohibited.
Visit the websites
When you merely visit our websites, we do not collect any personal data, with the exception of the data that your internet browser transmits to enable you to visit the website. Such usage data, which your internet browser sends and which are automatically stored by our IT systems, are e.g.
- IP address,
- Date and time of the page view,
- Content of the request (specific web page)
- Operating system,
Some of this data is collected to ensure error-free provision of the website, e.g. to enable compatibility with different browsers. Other data may be used, for example, for statistical analysis of user behaviour.
This data is not merged with other data sources.
On our websites, you also have the option of contacting us, e.g. via a contact or registration form. The data you transmit to us in this process is automatically stored.
Data is collected on our analytik.de website to enable us to provide our advertising customers with evidence of the effectiveness of their campaigns. No personal data is collected during normal viewing of the website, only when an advertisement is clicked on, the time and technical information is stored. This data can be made available to our advertising customers.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of all data against access by third parties is not possible.
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are e.g.:
- Browser type and version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address
This data is not merged with other data sources.
Third-party analysis tools and tools
When visiting our websites, your surfing behaviour can be statistically evaluated. This is done primarily with cookies and so-called analysis programs. The analysis of your surfing behaviour is anonymous - the surfing behaviour cannot be traced back to you.
Some of our websites use so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". These are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of the websites may be limited.
Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you have requested (e.g. filling out forms) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1f) DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of its services.
Ordering and cancelling newsletters
You have the possibility to subscribe to our free newsletter. We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to register for a newsletter.
This means that after registration by providing your e-mail address, we send you a confirmation e-mail to the e-mail address you provided, in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. This ensures that no third party has used your data. If you confirm your wish to receive the newsletter, we will store your e-mail address until you unsubscribe.
The storage serves the sole purpose of being able to send you the newsletter. Furthermore, we store your IP addresses and the times of registration and confirmation in order to prevent misuse of your personal data.
The only mandatory information for sending a newsletter is your e-mail address. The provision of further, separately marked information such as first name and surname is voluntary and will only be used to personalise the newsletter. This data will also be completely deleted upon revocation. Data that has been stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this.
You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time with effect for the future. You can declare your revocation by clicking on the link provided in every newsletter e-mail ("Unsubscribe Newsletter"), by e-mail (see above) or by sending a message (e.g. fax or letter) to Dr. Klinkner & Partner GmbH (address see above).
The legality of data processing operations that have already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation.
Newsletter service provider dialogue1
We use the service of dialogue1 GmbH, Katharinenstraße 33, 20457 Hamburg, Germany for sending and evaluating our newsletter. For more information about the company and the functions provided, please see the following link: https://dialogue1.de/.
The data you enter for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us and on dialogue1's servers in Germany until you unsubscribe from the newsletter.
After you unsubscribe from the newsletter, this data will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of dialogue1. Data that has been stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this.
With the help of dialogue1, we are able to analyse our newsletter campaigns. For example, we can see whether a newsletter message was opened and which links were clicked on. In this way, we can determine, among other things, which links were clicked on particularly often.
If you do not want dialogue1 to analyse your data, you will unfortunately have to unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide an unsubscribe link in every newsletter. You can also unsubscribe directly on the website.
Revocation of your consent to data processing
You can revoke an already granted consent at any time. An informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient for this purpose. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Information, blocking, deletion
You have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data. For this purpose as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint.
Right to data transmission
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.
Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of violations of data protection law, the person concerned has the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority for data protection issues is the State Data Protection Commissioner of the federal state in which the company has its registered office.
In our case, this is the Independent Data Protection Centre Saarland, Fritz-Dobisch-Straße 12,
66111 Saarbrücken, email@example.com, http://www.datenschutz.saarland.de).
PLUG-INS, TOOLS AND PARTNER PROGRAMMES
Some of our websites use plugins from the YouTube site operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited.
If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
YouTube is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1f) DSGVO.
Google Web Fonts
Some of our websites use so-called web fonts provided by Google 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.
For this purpose, the browser you use must connect to Google's servers. This informs Google that our website has been accessed via your IP address. Google Web Fonts are used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1f) DSGVO.
Some of our websites use the Maps service provided by Google to display web descriptions or map sections.
For this purpose, 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. This service is used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1f) DSGVO.
