2. GENERAL NOTICES AND MANDATORY INFORMATION


PRIVACY

The hosts of these websites take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your individual-related data confidentially and in accordance with legal data protection regulations as well as this privacy notice.

When you use this website, several individual-related data points are collected. Individual-related data is data, by which you may be identified personally. The present privacy notice details, which data we collect and for which purposes we use it. It also details how and to what end the collection happens.

We point out that the online transfer of data (i.e. during e-mail communication) may be subject to security breaches. Absolute protection of data from third-party access is not feasible.

 

SSL, or TSL-ENCRYPTION

For security reasons, and to protect the transfer of confidential data such as your enquiries to us as website operators, this website uses SSL, or TSL encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the browser’s address bar changing from “http://” to “https://” and by the padlock-symbol in the address bar.

Once the SSL, or TSL-encryption is activated, the data you are transmitting to us is protected from third-party access.

 

3. DATA COLLECTION THROUGH OUR WEBSITE

 

COOKIES

Our website uses cookies which are saved by the browser on your device and which contain certain settings relating to the website usage (i.e. to the current session). Cookies serve to make our service more user-friendly. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your device and which your browser saves. The majority of the cookies we use are so-called session-cookies, which are automatically deleted when the browser is closed. Other cookies stay saved on your device until you delete them, or the storage period expires. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser on your next visit.

Cookies are partly designed to simplify website processes by saving settings (i.e. by providing data which has previously been entered). In the event that individual-related data is processed through cookies implemented by us, the processing is conducted either, in accordance with Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. b DSGVO, to carry out contract services, or, in accordance with Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO, to safeguard our legitimate interest in ensuring optimum functionality of our website and the customer-friendly and effective design of the user experience on our website.

You can adjust your browser’s settings so that you are notified about the placement of cookies and either allow cookies only on a case-by-case basis, or prohibit cookies for certain sites or generally, and set your browser to automatically delete all cookies once the browser is closed. The following links refer to the individual browser type’s cookie-settings:

 

Furthermore, you can manage the cookies used by different companies or applications for advertisement purposes. Please refer to www.aboutads.info/choices/ or www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices for individual user tools.

Most browsers offer a “do-not-track”-option, by which you can specify that you do not wish to be “tracked” by certain websites. Once this function is activated, the browser will block advertisement networks, websites and applications from sending you targeted advertisements or other user-specific messages. For further information and how-to-guides for this option, please refer to the following links:

Furthermore, you can block the loading of so-called scripts. NoScript will only allow JavaScripts, Java, and other plug-ins to run for certain trustworthy domains specified by you. For information on how to edit this option, please refer to your browser providers (i.e. for Mozilla Firefox, refer to: addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/noscript/).

Please note that this website’s performance may be limited, if cookies are deactivated.

 

SERVER LOG-IN FILES

The provider of these websites automatically saves information in so-called server log-in files, which your browser automatically sends to us. They are:

  • Browser type and -version
  • Operating System
  • Referrer URL
  • Hostname of PC
  • Time of Server referral
  • IP-address

This data will not be pooled together with other data sources.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of contractual or pre-contractual obligations.

CONTACT FORM

When you send us a request via our contact form, your information, including your contact information, will be saved while we process your request and for possible follow-up questions. We will not pass your information on without your permission.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form therefore happens with your consent (Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You may revoke your permission at any time. In order to do so, an informal e-mail to us will suffice. The legality of the data processing carried out up until the time of your revocation remains unaffected.

The information you enter in the contact form will remain on our servers until you request their deletion, revoke your consent to the storing of your data or until the purpose of the storing of data ceases to exist (e.g. once your request has been processed). Binding legal obligations – such as mandated retention periods – remain valid.

Legal basis of data processing upon permission is Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a DSGVO, or Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. b DSGVO, if data processing is required in order to provide the requested services. Your information will be deleted once your user account is deleted on the website, provided that no mandated retention periods apply.

4. ANALYSIS TOOLS AND ADVERTISEMENTS

 

GOOGLE ANALYTICS

Our website uses Google Analytics, an advertisement analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so called cookies. These are text files which are saved on your computer and which enable Google to analyse your usage of the website. The information on your usage of the website generated by the cookie are usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Whenever we use Google Analytics, IP-anonymisation is activated. This means that the users’ IP address from within the European Union and other member states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area is shortened so that it may not be linked to any individual person. Google Inc., which is based in the USA, is certified in accordance with EU–US Privacy Shield, which guarantees the adherence to an EU level of privacy protection. Legal basis for processing is Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO or § 15 Abs. 3 TMG, in accordance with our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behaviour for the purposes of optimisation and marketing.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyse your usage of the website, to compile reports about the website activity and to provide other services in relation to the usage of the website and usage of the internet to the operator of this website. Your IP-address, as transmitted by your browser to Google Analytics, will not be pooled together with other information. For the terms of usage for Google Analytics and further information relating to privacy protection, please refer to the following links: www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html and www.google.de/intl/de/policies/.

You can block the storage of cookies by editing your browser options; however, we advise you that when using this option, the full range of the website’s functions may not be available to you. Furthermore, you can block the collection of data relating to the cookie as well as your usage of the website (incl. your IP-address) by Google as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in through tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Click on the following link to block the recording of data through Google Analytics by generating a so-called opt-out-cookie:

Informationen zum Umgang mit Nutzerdaten bei Google Analytics finden Sie in der Datenschutzerklärung von Google.

 

GOOGLE TAG MANAGER

This website uses Google Tag Manager. This service allows the management of website-tags via a user interface. Google Tag Manager only implements tags. No cookies are generated, and no individual-related data is collected. Google Tag Manager triggers other tags, which may collect some data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a block is set on a domain or cookie level, it will remain in place for all tracking-tags, in so far as they are implemented via Google Tags Manager. For further information about Google Tag Manager, please refer to the following link: http://www.google.de/tagmanager/use-policy.html.

 

5. PLUGINS AND TOOLS FROM THIRD PARTIES

 

GOOGLE WEB FONTS

For a consistent display of fonts, this website uses so-called web fonts provided by Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA („Google“). Google Web Fonts allows us to use external fonts, so-called Google Fonts. Upon loading our website, the necessary Google Font is downloaded by the browser to the browser cache, in order to display text and fonts correctly. This is necessary to ensure an optically improved display of our texts in the browser. If your browser does not support this function, a standard display font will be used. The integration of these web fonts is carried out through a server call; usually, a Google USA server is used. During this process, information about which site of our online presence you visited, is transmitted to the server. Furthermore, the IP-address of the browser of the device of the user is saved by Google.

We use Google Web Fonts for optimisation purposes, and especially to improve the usage of our online presence for you and to make its design more user-friendly. Herein also lies our justified concern in accordance with Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Google has submitted to the EU–US Privacy Shield accord and has been certified. Google thereby commits to upholding the standards and regulations of European privacy laws. For further information, please refer to the following link: www.privacyshield.gov/participant

For further information on privacy protection, please refer to Google’s privacy notice: www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy

For further information about Google Web Fonts, please refer to www.google.com/webfonts/, developers.google.com/fonts/faq and www.google.com/fonts.

 

GOOGLE MAPS

This webpage uses the map service Google Maps via an API. The service is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

For using the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP-adress. This information is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The operator of this web site has no influence on the transmission of this data.

The usage of Google Maps is carried out in the interest of a more appealing display of our online services and better location of the places indicated on our website. This constitutes justified concern in accordance with Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

For more information on the treatment of user data, please refer to Google’s privacy notice: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

 

NEWSLETTER MAILING

As a distribution partner, you can register to receive a newsletter with regular information about our products and services offered on the distributor’s section of our website. This sign-up requires you to input your e-mail address. For the mailing of this newsletter, we follow a so-called “double-opt-in” process. This means that we will only send you our newsletter via e-mail, once you have expressly confirmed that you agree to the sending of these newsletters. In a first step you will therefore receive an e-mail with a link which you can click to confirm that, as the owner of this e-mail address, you wish to receive newsletters in the future. With this agreement, you give us permission to use your individual-related data for the purpose of the requested newsletter mailing, in accordance with Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

The mailing of our e-mail newsletter is carried out by the technical service provider Newsletter2Go GmbH, Köpenicker Str. 126 in 10179 Berlin ("Newsletter2Go"), to whom we forward the data provided by you during the sign-up process. This forwarding is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO and serves our justified concern of a promotionally effective, secure and user-friendly newsletter system. The data submitted by you in order to receive the newsletter (i.e. e-mail address) is transmitted to Newsletter2Go and stored on Newsletter2Go servers in Germany. Newsletter2Go is prohibited from selling your data on as well as from using it for purposes other than the mailing of newsletters. Newsletter2Go is a German certified provider which was selected in accordance with General Data Protection Regulation and the Federal Data Protection Act. For further information, please refer to: https://www.newsletter2go.de/informationen-newsletter-empfaenger/

You may revoke your permission of the retention of data, your e-mail address as well as their being used in the mailing of newsletters at any time, for example by following the “unsubscribe”-link in your newsletter.

Newsletter2Go uses this information for the mailing and the statistical analysis of the newsletters on our account. To facilitate analysis, the e-mails contain so-calls web-beacons or tracking-pixels, which are one-pixel image files saved on our website. Thus, we are able to track whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links readers clicked. Using so-called conversion-tracking, we can also analyse whether, after clicking the link, a predefined action was carried out. Furthermore, technical data is recorded (i.e. retrieval time, IP-address, browser type and operating system). This data is exclusively collected in a pseudonymised way and is not connected to your individual-related data; direct personal references are therefore impossible. This data is exclusively used for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used in order to better match future newsletters to the recipients.

Our privacy protection measures are subject to constant technical improvement. We therefore ask you to regularly obtain information about our data protection measures by referring to our privacy notice.

 

ONLINE CALCULATORS

The online calculators available on the Domicil Finance GmbH website are operated by our partner EUROPACE AG. The information entered by you into the online calculators is transmitted to the EUROPACE virtual marketplace. During the financing inquiry, contact information for possible future contact may be requested (First Name, Surname, E-Mail, Telephone Number and (optionally) Date of Birth). The legal basis for data processing is our legitimate concern with the reply to your inquiry in accordance with Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO as well as possibly Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. b DSGVO, provided your inquiry follows the intention to sign an agreement.

EUROPACE is prohibited from selling your data on and from using it for other purposes than the respective purpose of the contract, i.e. selection of a product and the preparation and loan application. For further information on the EUROPACE AG data protection guidelines click hier. Your data will be deleted upon processing of your enquiry, provided that no legally mandated retention periods apply.

7. DURATION OF STORAGE OF INDIVIDUAL-RELATED DATA

Upon expiration of the respective periods, the concerned data is routinely deleted.
