  1. What Are the Purposes of and Legal Basis for Processing Data?

We process your personal data in accordance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Federal Data Protection Act (new FDPA) as well as all other relevant laws only insofar as this is required to provide information on this website as well as our services on this website.
If you are using the website simply for information purposes, that is to say, if you are not logging in or registering to use the website or providing us with any other information, we will not collect any personal data, with the exception of the data that your browser transmits in order to enable you to visit the website. These are:

  • IP address
  • Date and time of query
  • Time zone difference in relation to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Content of request (specific page)
  • Access status/HTTP status code
  • Transferred data quantity in each case
  • Website issuing the request
  • Browser
  • Operating system and its interface
  • Language and version of the browser software.

To ensure that the website functions, this information is saved in log files. Furthermore, this data is used for the purposes of ensuring that our information-technology systems are secure and optimizing our website.
Art. 6 (1) f) of the GDPR forms the legal basis for temporarily saving data and log files. If processing operations for personal data are based on acquiring the consent of the person affected, Art. 6 (1) a) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis.
Art. 6 (1) b) of the GDPR forms the legal basis for processing personal data in order to fulfill contracts in the case that one of the contracting parties is the person concerned. The same applies to implementing pre-contractual measures that necessitate processing operations. If our company is subject to a legal obligation for which it is necessary to process personal data, Art. 6 (1) c) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis. Art. 6 (1) d) of the GDPR is the legal basis in cases where vital interests of the persons concerned or another natural person necessitate the processing of personal data. If personal data is processed in order to protect the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, the interests, basic rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned are of secondary importance. Art. 6 (1) f) of the GDPR is the legal basis for processing data in this instance. Personal data can be passed onto our IT service providers for the purposes of making this website available.

  1. Registration

It will be possible for you as a user to register on our website. For this purpose it is necessary to enter your personal data. The data entered in an input mask is transferred to our company and stored. The data will not be passed on to third parties at any time. Within the framework of the registration process, or at the time of registration, the following will be stored:

2. time of registration (date and time)
3rd sex
4. surname and forename
5. e-mail address
6th street

If the user has consented to the processing of the data, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. If registration is required for the performance of a contract to which the user is a party, or if registration data is required as part of pre-contractual measures, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO forms the legal basis for data processing.

Registration may be necessary for three reasons: Either registration by you as a user is necessary for the provision of certain content and services on our website, for the fulfilment of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

As soon as the data is no longer required for the achievement of the original purpose for which it was collected, it is deleted. Data collected during the registration process will be deleted if the registration on the website is cancelled or modified. Data stored during registration for the execution of a contract or for the execution of pre-contractual measures will be deleted if they are no longer necessary for the execution of the contract.

In order to comply with legal or contractual obligations, it may be necessary to store personal data of the contractual partner even after the conclusion of a contract.

The premature deletion of data required for the fulfilment of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures is only possible if there are no contractual or legal obligations for further storage.

 

  1. Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP ad-dress) will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. If IP anonymization is activated on this website, Google will truncate your IP address within the Member States of the European Union or in other treaty States of the European Economic Area prior to transmitting it to the US. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the website provider for the purpose of evaluating your use of the web-site, compiling reports on website activity and providing the website provider with other services relating to website activity and Internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google. You may prevent the collection for Google of the data (incl. your IP address) generated by cookies and related to your use of the website, and the processing of such data, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in that can be accessed at: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. or by using Google Analytics OptOut on the basis of a cookie. This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This means that IP addresses are processed in truncated form, thereby preventing them from being traced to a specific person. If the data acquired about you can be attributed to a personal connection, this contact will be dismissed immediately and the personal data will be deleted without delay. We use Google Analytics so that we can analyze the usage of our website and improve it on a continuous basis. Using the statistics obtained, we can improve our services and make these more interesting for you as a user. In exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has signed up to the EU-US Privacy Shield: www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for using Google Analytics is Art. 6 (1) (1) f) of the GDPR. The legal basis for processing the personal data of users is Art. 6 (1) f) of the GDPR. Processing the person-al data of users enables us to analyze the browsing behavior of our users. By analyzing the data acquired, we are able to compile information about the use of the individual components that make up our website, which helps us to improve our site and how user-friendly it is on a continuous basis. Our legitimate interest in processing data lies in these objectives in accordance with Art. 6 (1) f) of the GDPR. Anonymizing the IP address means that the user’s interest with regard to the protection of personal data is sufficiently taken into account. The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for our recording purposes.

  1. Use of Social Media Plug-Ins

We currently use the following social media plug-ins: Facebook, Instagram. As part of using these plug-ins, we adopt the ‘two-click’ solution. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is passed onto the provider of these plug-ins. You can identify the provider of the plug-in via the marking on the box above the initial letters of the company name or the logo. We give you the option to communicate directly with the plug-in provider via the button. Only when you click on the marked field and thereby activate it does the plug-in provider receive the information that you have called up the respective web page of our website. In addition, the data referred to under No. 2 of this statement is transferred. In the case of Facebook and Instagram, the IP address is anonymized immediately after it is obtained in Germany according to the information provided by the respective providers. When the plug-in is activated, personal data is transferred from you to the respective plug-in provider and then saved by the respective provider (in the USA in the case of US providers). As the plug-in provider obtains data primarily via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies via your browser’s security settings before clicking on the grayed-out box. We do not have any influence on the data obtained or the data processing procedures and neither are we aware of the full extent of the data obtained, the purposes of processing the data and the periods for which the data is stored. We also do not have any information on the plug-in providers’ procedures for deleting the data obtained. The plug-in provider saves this data as a usage profile and uses this for the purposes of advertising, con-ducting market research and/or designing its website in line with users’ needs. This data (including the data of users who are not logged in) is analyzed in particular for the purposes of displaying appropriate advertisements and informing other users of the social network of your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of this user profile; you need to contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. Through plug-ins, we give you the option of interacting with social networks and other users, so that we can improve our website and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for using plug-ins is Art. 6 (1) (1) f) of the GDPR. Data is passed on irrespective of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged into this account. If you are logged into the plug-in provider’s site, the personal data we have obtained from you is directly allocated to your existing account with the plug-in provider. If you press the activated button and link to the page, for example, the plug-in provider also saves this information in your user account and publicly shares it with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network and especially before activating the button as doing so means that you can avoid data being allocated to your profile by the plug-in provider. You can find more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and data processing by the plug-in providers in the providers’ privacy statements provided below. These statements will also provide you with further information on your rights regarding this matter and how you can adjust your settings to protect your privacy.

  1. Facebook Custom Audiences

The website also uses the remarketing function “Custom Audiences” of Facebook Inc. (“Facebook”). This enables users of the website to be presented with interest-related advertisements (“Facebook Ads”) when they visit the social network Facebook or other websites that also use the process. In this way, we pursue the interest in displaying advertisements that are of interest to you in order to make our website more interesting for you.

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Facebook server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Facebook through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of Facebook Custom Audiences, Facebook receives the information that you have called up the corresponding website of our Internet presence or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Facebook service, Facebook can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Facebook or have not logged in, there is a possibility that the provider will find out and store your IP address and other identifying features.

Deactivation of the “Facebook Custom Audiences” function is possible for logged in users at https://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=ads#_möglich.

The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DS-GVO.

  1. Facebook and Data Protection

Please note that you use this Facebook page and its functions at your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of the interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating). Alternatively, you can also access the information offered via this page on our website at www.biovegane.com.

When you visit our Facebook page, Facebook records, among other things, your IP address and other information that is available on your PC in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, as the operator of the Facebook pages, with statistical information about the use of the Facebook page. Facebook provides more information on this at the following link: http://de-de.facebook.com/help/pages/insights.

The data collected about you in this context will be processed by Facebook Ltd. and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union. Facebook describes in general terms what information Facebook receives and how this information is used in its data use guidelines. There you will also find information about how to contact Facebook and about the settings for advertisements. The data use guidelines are available at the following link:  http://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy, the complete Facebook data guidelines can be found here: https://de-de.facebook.com/full_data_use_policy

In what way Facebook uses the data from visits to Facebook pages for its own purposes, to what extent activities on the Facebook page are assigned to individual users, how long Facebook stores this data and whether data from a visit to the Facebook page is passed on to third parties is not conclusively and clearly stated by Facebook and is not known to us.

When accessing a Facebook Page, the IP address assigned to your device is transmitted to Facebook. According to information from Facebook, this IP address is anonymized (for “German” IP addresses) and deleted after 90 days. Facebook also stores information about the end devices of its users (e.g. as part of the “login notification” function); if necessary, Facebook is thus able to assign IP addresses to individual users.

If you are currently logged in to Facebook as a user, a cookie containing your Facebook ID is stored on your device. This enables Facebook to track that you have visited this page and how you have used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Using Facebook buttons integrated into websites, Facebook is able to record your visits to these websites and assign them to your Facebook profile. This data can be used to offer content or advertising tailored to you

If you want to avoid this, you should log out of Facebook or disable the “stay logged in” function, delete the cookies on your device, close and restart your browser. This will delete Facebook information that can be used to identify you immediately. This allows you to use our Facebook page without revealing your Facebook identification. When you access interactive features of the site (Like, Comment, Share, Messages, etc.), a Facebook login screen appears. Once you have logged in, you will again be recognizable to Facebook as a specific user. For information on how to manage or delete existing information about you, please visit the following Facebook support pages: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy# As the provider of the information service, we do not collect and process any other data from your use of our service. You will find the current version of this data protection declaration under “Data protection” on our Facebook page. If you have any questions regarding our information service, you can contact us at info@biovegane.com. Further information about Facebook and other social networks and how you can protect your data can also be found on youngdata.de.

 

  1. Use of social media

We maintain publicly accessible profiles in social networks. Social networks such as Facebook, Google+ etc. are usually able to comprehensively analyse your user behaviour when you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. like buttons or advertising banners). By visiting our social media sites, numerous data protection-relevant processing procedures are triggered. [Specification of the respective processing operations]. If you are logged in to your social media account and visit our social media presence, the operator of the social media portal can assign this visit to your user account. Under certain circumstances, however, your personal data may also be collected if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, data is collected, for example, by recording your IP address or via cookies that are stored on your end device. Operators of social media portals can use the data thus collected to create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. If you have an account with the respective social network, interest-based advertising can be displayed on all devices on which you are or were logged in. Depending on the provider, further processing may therefore be carried out by the operators of the social media portals. You can find details on this in the terms of use and data protection regulations of the respective social media portals.
