Data Protection Policy


Scope

According to the Federal Data Protection Act and Telemedia Act, this data protection declaration is intended to inform the users of this website about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the website operator Emarticon GmbH (Lucile-Grahn-Str. 30, D-81675 Munich, Germany, Tel. + 49 (0) 89 - 8563 8144, info@emarticon.net).

The website operator takes your data protection very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with legal regulations.

Remember that data transmission over the Internet can generally be subject to security gaps. Full protection against unauthorized access is not possible.

Access data

The website operator or site provider collects data about access to the site and saves it as "server log files". The following data is logged in this way:

  • Visited website

  • Time at the time of access

  • Amount of data sent in bytes

  • Source / reference from which you came to the page

  • Browser used

  • Operating system used

  • Used IP address


The data collected are only used for statistical evaluations and to improve the website. However, the website operator reserves the right to retrospectively check the server log files if there are concrete indications of illegal use.

Handling of personal data

The website operator collects, uses and transfers your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the data being collected.

Personal data is all information that is used to identify your person and which can be traced back to you - for example your name, your e-mail address and telephone number. But also data about the company, the name of your website, or which websites were viewed by someone count as personal data. Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by the provider if this is permitted by law or the users consent to the data collection.

Handling of contact details

If you contact the website operator through the contact options offered, your details will be saved so that they can be used to process and answer your request. These data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.

Dealing with comments and contributions

If you leave a post or comment on this website, your IP address will be saved. This is for the security of the website operator: If your text violates the law, he wants to be able to trace your identity

Integration of services and content from third parties

It may happen that third party content, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, is integrated into this online offer. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) perceive the IP address of the user. Because without the IP address, you could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required to display this content. We strive to only use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. However, we have no control over whether the third-party provider uses the IP address e.g. save for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we will inform users about it.

Data protection declaration for Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. To deactivate Google Analytics, Google provides a browser plug-in at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Google Analytics uses cookies. These are small text files that make it possible to save specific, user-related information on the user's device. These enable an analysis of the use of our website by Google.

The information collected by the cookie about the use of our website (including your IP address) is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We would like to point out that Google Analytics has been expanded to include the code "gat._anonymizeIp ();" on this website in order to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).


If anonymization is active, Google shortens IP addresses within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area, which is why no conclusions about your identity are possible. The full IP address is only transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. Google observes the data protection provisions of the “Privacy Shield” agreement and is registered with the “Privacy Shield” program of the US Department of Commerce and uses the information collected to evaluate the use of our websites, to write reports for us on this and to provide us with other related services to provide.

Cookies

Our website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your device with the help of the browser. They do no harm.

We use cookies to make our offer user-friendly. Some cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. They enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit.

If you do not want this, you can set up your browser so that it informs you about the setting of cookies and that you only allow this in individual cases. Deactivating cookies may restrict the functionality of our website.

Newsletter

 

With the newsletter we inform you about us and our offers. If you would like to receive the newsletter, we need a valid email address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided or that the owner agrees to receive the newsletter. These data will only be used to send the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties. When you register for the newsletter, we save your IP address and the date of registration. This storage serves solely as evidence in the event that a third party misuses an email address and registers to receive the newsletter without the knowledge of the authorized person. You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the email address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time.

The revocation can be made via a link in the newsletter itself or by sending a message to the following e-mail address: info@emarticon.net.

We will then immediately delete your data in connection with the sending of the newsletter.

 

Notes on the newsletter and consents

 

With the following information we will inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedures as well as your right of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you declare that you agree to the receipt and the procedures described.

Content of the newsletter

We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with advertising information (hereinafter "newsletter") only with the consent of the recipient or with legal permission. If the content of the newsletter is specifically described when registering for the newsletter, it is decisive for the consent of the user. Incidentally, our newsletters contain information about our products and our company (this may include information about our services, lectures, seminars or webinars).

Double opt-in and logging

The registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in procedure. As soon as you have registered for the newsletter, we will send you a confirmation email with a link to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with someone else's email address.

The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the time of registration and confirmation, as well as the IP address.

Use of the mail service provider "CleverReach"

 

The newsletter is sent via „CleverReach“ a newsletter dispatch platform (contact: CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Schafjueckenweg 2, 26180 Rastede, GERMANY).

 

The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described in the context of these notes, are stored on CleverReach's servers. We trust in the reliability and the IT and data security of CleverReach. You can read the CleverReach data protection regulations here.

CleverReach also protects our newsletter subscribers with an extensive Anti-Spam Policy.

 

Statistical survey and analysis

 

The newsletters contain a so-called "web beacon", i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the CleverReach server when the newsletter is opened. 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 retrieval, are initially collected. This information is used to technically improve the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or the access times.

The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our aim nor that of CleverReach to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more 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.

Online access and data management

There are cases in which we direct the newsletter recipients to the CleverReach website. E.g. Our newsletters contain a link with which the newsletter recipients can access the newsletter online (e.g. if there are display problems in the e-mail program). Furthermore, newsletter recipients can use their data, such as correct the email address afterwards.

In this context, we pointed out that cookies are used on the CleverReach websites and that personal data are processed by CleverReach, its partners and service providers (e.g. Google Analytics). We have no influence on this data collection.

 

Further information can be found in the CleverReach data protection declaration. We also point out the possibility of objection to the data collection for advertising purposes on the websites https://www.aboutads.info/choices/ and https://www.youronlinechoices.com/ (EU scope).

 

Captcha

We use the Google reCaptcha service to determine whether a person or a computer makes a certain entry in our contact or newsletter form. Google uses the following data to check whether you are a person or a computer: IP address of the device used, the website that you visit with us and on which the captcha is integrated, the date and duration of the visit, the identification data of the device used Browser and operating system type, Google account if you are logged in to Google, mouse movements on the reCaptcha areas and tasks in which you have to identify images. The legal basis for the data processing described is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f of the General Data Protection Regulation. There is a legitimate interest on our part in this data processing, to ensure the security of our website and to protect us from automated entries (attacks).

Order data processing

 

We have concluded an agreement on order data processing with the following contractual partners and implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities:

• Google

• Clever Reach

 

User rights: information, correction and deletion

Your data will be deleted when:

• the purpose of the survey no longer applies,

• the consent is revoked (newsletter unsubscribe),

• there is an objection by the user ("delete my data") and none

 

Conflict with statutory storage obligations (taxes and accounting)

The user has the right to request information free of charge about the personal data that has been stored about him. In addition, the user has the right to correct inaccurate data, block and delete his personal data, as long as there is no statutory retention requirement. If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or your data protection claims have been violated in any other way, you can complain to the supervisory authority. In Germany, this is the Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information.
