Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Tag Manager, a service that enables the management of website tags via an interface. Google Tag Manager merely places tags. This means that no cookies are used and that no personal data is collected. However, Google Tag Manager prompts other tags that may collect data, but Google Tag Manager does not access this data. In the event of deactivation at domain or cookie level, this will apply to all tracking tags if these have been placed by Google Tag Manager.

Google Analytics

On our website, we use Google Analytics, a Web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (‘Google’). Google Analytics uses ‘cookies’, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how you use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your truncated IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and Internet usage to the website provider. Google may also share this data with third parties insofar as it is legally obligated to do so or if these third parties process the data on behalf of Google.

Furthermore, we are responsible together with Google for the processing of your personal data in connection with the use of Google Analytics. For these purposes, we have concluded a joint control agreement with Google in respect of data processed in this regard. The material content of this agreement can be read here: https://business.safety.google/gdprcontrollerterms/

Google Ads

Google Ads Conversion

We use Google Ads Conversion – a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (‘Google’) – in order to promote our attractive products and services using advertising materials (Google Ads) on external websites. We are therefore able to calculate the success rate of individual advertising materials in relation to the data for our advertising campaigns. As such, we are pursuing the interest of showing you advertising that is of interest to you, making our website more interesting for you and achieving fair pricing for advertising costs.

These advertising materials are supplied by Google via ad servers. To this end, Google Ads uses ‘cookies’, text files that are stored on your device and that can be evaluated using certain success measurement criteria, such as the display of ads or user click-throughs. If you access our website via a Google Ad, Google Ads will store a cookie on your device. Generally speaking, these cookies expire after 30 days and are not designed to identify you personally.

Usually, this cookie stores the following analysis values: the unique cookie ID, the number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), the last page impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information. The information generated by the cookies may be transmitted to a third country. Standard contractual clauses pursuant to Article 46 of the GDPR have been concluded as appropriate guarantees.

Data is processed on the basis of consent granted by you (Article 6 [1a] of the GDPR).

Google Ads Remarketing

We use the remarketing function within the Google Ads service. This function allows us to present users of our website with adverts based on their interests on other websites within the Google advertising network (‘Google Ads’, on Google search pages or on YouTube). For this purpose, user interaction on our website is analysed (e.g. the services in which the user was interested) in order to be able to display targeted advertising to users on other websites once they have visited our website. To this end, Google stores cookies on the devices of users who visit certain Google services or websites within the Google Display Network. The visits of these users are recorded using the cookies. The cookies are designed to uniquely identify a Web browser on a particular device and not to identify a person. These cookies usually expire after 180 days. The information generated by the cookies may be transmitted to a third country. Standard contractual clauses pursuant to Article 46 of the GDPR have been concluded as appropriate guarantees.

Data is processed on the basis of consent granted by you (Article 6 [1a] of the GDPR).

For more information on the processing of data by Google, please refer to the Google privacy policies at http://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy and https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html .

If you wish to opt out of Web analytics, you can deactivate Google Ads remarketing at any time using a browser add-on that can be downloaded here: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin

Responsibility

The legal basis for data processing lies in our legitimate interest in ensuring the needs-oriented design of our website (Article 6 [1f] of the GDPR). The transmission of data to Google is based on our legitimate interest in offering you the map function of Google Maps on our website.

The processed information may be transmitted to a third country (usually Google servers in the United States). Standard contractual clauses pursuant to Article 46 of the GDPR have been concluded as appropriate guarantees.

We are responsible together with Google for the processing of your personal data in connection with the transmission of data to Google Maps. For these purposes, we have concluded a joint control agreement with Google in respect of data processed in this regard. The material content of this agreement can be read here: https://business.safety.google/gdprcontrollerterms

Sharing of data

Irrespective of the circumstances set out in Section 5, your personal data will only be shared without your express prior consent in the following cases:

  • If it is necessary to do so in order to investigate unlawful use of our services or for the purpose of legal prosecution, personal data will be passed on to law enforcement authorities or, if applicable, harmed third parties. We shall only do so, however, if there are specific indications of misuse/unlawful activity. Data may also be shared if this aids the enforcement of terms of use or other agreements. We are also legally obligated to share information with certain public bodies on request. These are law enforcement agencies, agencies that pursue fines in administrative mattes and the financial authorities.

    The sharing of this data is based on our legitimate interest in the combating of misuse, law enforcement and the establishment, assertion and defence of claims and on the fact that your rights and interests regarding the protection of your personal data do not override our interests, Article 6 (1f) of the GDPR.
  • In order to provide our services, we are reliant on contractually engaged third-party companies and external contractors (‘data processors’). In such cases, personal data is shared with these data processors so that they can process it further. We select these data processors carefully and audit them on a regular basis in order to ensure that your privacy is respected. The data processors may only use the data for the purposes stated by us and are also contractually obligated by us to handle your data solely in accordance with this Privacy Policy and German data protection legislation.

    The sharing of data with processors is based on Article 28 (1) of the GDPR.
  • As part of the ongoing development of our business, the structure of Datalogue GmbH may change by means of an alteration to the legal form or through the establishment, acquisition or sale of subsidiaries, business units or other entities. In the event of such transactions, customer details will be passed on as part of the transfer of the business unit concerned. Any time personal data is passed on in the manner described above, we shall ensure that this is done in accordance with this Privacy Policy and applicable data protection legislation.

    Any sharing of personal data is justified by the fact that we have a legitimate interest in adapting our company’s legal form to reflect economic and legal circumstances where necessary and on the fact that your rights and interests concerning the protection of your personal data do not override our interests, Article 6 (1f) of the GDPR.

The deletion of your data

We will delete or anonymise your data as soon as it is no longer required for the purposes for which we have collected or used it in accordance with the provisions above. Generally speaking, we store your personal data for the duration of our communication with you via our contact form.

Upon completion of this communication, the data will be deleted insofar as this data is not required for a longer period due to statutory retention periods, law enforcement or the establishment, assertion or enforcement of legal claims. In such instances, we will retain the data for up to four years in accordance with the usual limitation period; during this time, its processing will be restricted. The data will then not be available for any other use.

In order to assert your right to restriction of processing, please contact us at the addresses stated above.
