PRIVACY POLICY

last updated December 2019

We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection has a particularly high priority for the management of exoquo ug haftungsbeschränkt. A use of the internet pages of exoquo ug haftungsbeschränkt is basically possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to make use of special services of our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the basic data protection regulation and in compliance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to exoquo ug haftungsbeschränkt. By means of this data protection declaration, our company wishes to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, this data protection declaration informs affected persons about their rights.

exoquo ug haftungsbeschränkt, as the data controller, has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as completely as possible. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions may have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, such as by telephone.

 

1. Definitions

The data protection declaration of exoquo ug haftungsbeschränkt is based on the terms used by the European legislator for directives and regulations when the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO) was adopted.

To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.

We use the following terms, among others, in this privacy policy:

  1. Personal details
    Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as "data subject"). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, on-line identification, or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
  2. Affected individual
    Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.

  4. Restriction of processing
    Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.
  5. Profiling
    Profiling is any automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to the job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, location or change of location of that natural person.
  6. Pseudonymisation
    Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
  7. Controller or data controller
    Controller or data controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or national law, provision may be made for the controller or for the specific criteria for his or her designation in accordance with Union or national law.
  8. Order Processor
    Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
  9. Recipient
    The recipient is any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not that person is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation mandate under Union or national law shall not be considered as recipients.
  10. Third party
    A third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or the processor, are authorized to process the personal data.
  11. Consent
    Consent shall mean any freely given, informed and unequivocal expression of the data subject's will in a specific case, in the form of a statement or any other unequivocal affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her consent to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

46514 Schermbeck
Germany
Tel.: +49 (0)2853 899 88-94
E-Mail: [email protected]

 

3. Cookies

The websites of exoquo ug haftungsbeschränkt use cookies. Cookies are text files, which are stored on a computer system via an internet browser.

Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters that can be used to assign Internet pages and servers to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the Internet pages and servers visited to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified by means of the unique cookie ID.

By using cookies, exoquo ug haftungsbeschränkt can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services, which would not be possible without the setting of cookies.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimised in the interest of the user. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to enter his or her access data each time he or she visits the website, because this is done by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in the online shop. The online shop uses a cookie to remember the articles that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, it is possible that not all functions of our website can be fully used.

 

4. collection of general data and information

The website of exoquo ug haftungsbeschränkt collects with each visit of the website by a person concerned or an automated system a number of general data and information. These general data and information are stored in the log files of the server. The (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet Protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information which serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information, exoquo ug does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. This information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) to ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and (4) to provide law enforcement agencies in case of a cyber attack with the necessary information for prosecution. These anonymously collected data and information are therefore statistically evaluated by exoquo ug haftungsbeschränkt on the one hand and on the other hand with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company, in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned.

 

5. registration on our website

The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the controller by providing personal data. The personal data transmitted to the controller will be determined by the input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored solely for internal use by the data controller and for his or her own purposes. The controller may arrange for the personal data to be transferred to one or more processors, such as a parcel service provider, which shall also use the personal data exclusively for internal use attributable to the controller.

Furthermore, by registering on the website of the data controller, the IP address assigned to the data subject by the Internet Service Provider (ISP), the date and time of registration are stored. The storage of this data is carried out against the background that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services and, if necessary, to enable the clarification of criminal offences committed. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary to protect the person responsible for processing. As a matter of principle, this data will not be passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to do so or the passing on of the data serves criminal prosecution.

The registration of the data subject with voluntary provision of personal data serves the purpose of the data controller to offer the data subject content or services which, by their very nature, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to modify the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have them completely deleted from the data stock of the data controller.

The controller shall at any time upon request provide any data subject with information as to which personal data relating to the data subject are stored. Furthermore, the controller shall correct or delete personal data at the request or notice of the data subject, unless this is contrary to any legal obligation to preserve records. The entire staff of the data controller is available to the data subject as contact persons in this context.

 

6. subscription to our newsletter

On the website of exoquo ug haftungsbeschränkt, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to the newsletter of our company. Which personal data will be transmitted to the data controller when ordering the newsletter can be seen from the input mask used for this purpose.

exoquo ug haftungsbeschränkt informs its customers and business partners in regular intervals by means of a newsletter about offers of the company. The newsletter of our company can only be received by the person concerned if (1) the person concerned has a valid e-mail address and (2) the person concerned registers for the newsletter. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address first registered by a data subject for newsletter dispatch using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to check whether the owner of the e-mail address, as the data subject, has authorized the receipt of the newsletter.

When registering for the newsletter, we also save the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date and therefore serves to provide legal protection for the person responsible for processing.

The personal data collected during registration for the newsletter is used exclusively for sending our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or for registration, as could be the case if there are changes to the newsletter offer or if technical conditions change. The personal data collected within the scope of the newsletter service will not be passed on to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled by the person concerned at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the person concerned has given us for the newsletter service, can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking this consent, a corresponding link can be found in every newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the data controller or to inform the data controller in another way.

 

7. newsletter tracking

The newsletters of exoquo ug haftungsbeschränkt contain so-called counting pixels. A tracking pixel is a thumbnail graphic that is embedded in such e-mails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. By means of the embedded pixel-code, exoquo ug is able to recognize, with limited liability, if and when an e-mail was opened by a person concerned and which links in the e-mail were called by the person concerned.

Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the data controller in order to optimise the newsletter dispatch and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. This personal data is not passed on to third parties. Data subjects are entitled at any time to revoke the separate declaration of consent given in this regard via the double opt-in procedure. After revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the data controller. A cancellation of the receipt of the newsletter is automatically interpreted by exoquo ug haftungsbeschränkt as a revocation.

 

8. possibility of contact via the website

Due to legal regulations, the website of exoquo ug haftungsbeschränkt contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our company as well as a direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the data controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject is automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted by a data subject to the controller on a voluntary basis are stored for the purposes of processing or for contacting the data subject. Such personal data shall not be disclosed to third parties.

 

9. comment function in the blog on the website

The exoquo ug haftungsbeschränkt offers users the possibility to leave individual comments on individual blog posts on a blog located on the website of the controller. A blog is a portal on an internet page, usually publicly accessible, in which one or more persons, called bloggers or web bloggers, can post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blog posts. The blog posts can usually be commented by third parties.

If a data subject leaves a comment in the blog published on this website, in addition to the comments left by the data subject, information on the time of the comment and the user name (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject will be stored and published. Furthermore, the IP address assigned to the person concerned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) is also logged. This storage of the IP address is done for security reasons and in the event that the person concerned violates the rights of third parties or posts illegal content by submitting a comment. The storage of this personal data is therefore in the own interest of the data controller, so that he/she can be exculpated in the event of a violation of the law. The personal data collected will not be passed on to third parties, unless such a transfer is required by law or serves the legal defence of the person responsible for processing.

 

10. subscription to comments in the blog on the website

The comments made in the blog of exoquo ug haftungsbeschränkt can be subscribed to by third parties. In particular, it is possible that a commentator subscribes to the comments following his or her comment on a specific blog post.

If a data subject opts for the option to subscribe to comments, the data controller sends an automatic confirmation e-mail in order to verify, through a double opt-in procedure, that the owner of the e-mail address provided has indeed chosen this option. The option to subscribe to comments can be cancelled at any time.

 

11. routine deletion and blocking of personal data

The controller shall process and store personal data relating to the data subject only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or where provided for by the European legislator or other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.

If the purpose of storage ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directives and Regulations or any other competent legislator expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with legal requirements.

14. privacy policy on the use of Facebook

The data controller has integrated components of the company Facebook on this website. Facebook is a social network.

A social network is a social meeting place operated on the Internet, an online community that generally allows users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or it can enable the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Facebook enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friend requests, among other things.

The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc. 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. The person responsible for processing personal data if a data subject lives outside the USA or Canada is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Each time the data controller calls up one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Facebook component to download a representation of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook. For a complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins see https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=de_DE . As part of this technical process, Facebook is informed which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.

If the person concerned is logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognises which specific subpage of our website the person concerned is visiting each time the person concerned calls up our website and for the entire duration of their stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the person concerned. If the person concerned clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the "Like" button, or if the person concerned makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the person concerned and stores this personal data.

Facebook will always receive information via the Facebook component that the person concerned has visited our website if the person concerned is logged in to Facebook at the same time when he or she accesses our website; this occurs regardless of whether the person concerned clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Facebook, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her Facebook account before accessing our website.

The data policy published by Facebook, which can be found at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/ provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains which settings Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the person concerned. In addition, various applications are available that make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Such applications can be used by the data subject to suppress data transfer to Facebook.

 

15. privacy policy on the use and application of Amazon partner program features

As a participant in the Amazon Partner Program, the data controller has integrated Amazon components on this website.

BuyVIP.com against payment of a commission. The data controller may generate advertising revenue by using the Amazon components.

The operating company of these Amazon components is Amazon EU S.à.r.l, 5 Rue Plaetis, L-2338 Luxembourg, Luxembourg.

Amazon sets a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. Every time one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which an Amazon component has been integrated, is called up, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Amazon component to transmit data to Amazon for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Amazon obtains knowledge of personal data which is used by Amazon to trace the origin of orders received by Amazon and subsequently enable commission settlement. Among other things, Amazon can trace that the person concerned has clicked on a partner link on our website.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Amazon from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, cookies already set by Amazon can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs.

Further information and the applicable Amazon privacy policy can be found at https://www.amazon.de/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=3312401

 

16. privacy policy on the use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)

The person responsible for processing has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data on which website a person concerned came to a website from (so-called referrers), which sub-pages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and to analyse the cost-benefit of internet advertising.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The data controller uses the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the data subject's Internet connection is shortened by Google and made anonymous if our Internet pages are accessed from a member state of the European Union or from another state that is a party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is the analysis of visitor flows on our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website in order to compile online reports for us which show the activities on our website and to provide further services in connection with the use of our website.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is able to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, is called up, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Google receives knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission settlements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the time of access, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned. Each time our website is visited, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies.

19. legal basis of the processing

Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which makes it necessary to process personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were to be injured and his or her name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be disclosed to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this case the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).

 

20. legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

 

21. the duration for which the personal data are stored

The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.

 

22. legal or contractual provisions making the personal data available; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-supply

We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. details of the contractual partner).
Sometimes it may be necessary for the conclusion of a contract that a data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him/her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded.
Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences would be if the personal data were not provided.

 

23. existence of automated decision making

As a responsible company, we avoid automatic decision making or profiling.

 

Information

The user has the right to request information free of charge about the personal data stored about him/her. In addition, the user has the right to correct incorrect data, block and delete his personal data, provided that this does not conflict with any legal retention obligation.
