Some parts of Traum-Ferienwohnungen GmbH are also referred to below as “online services.” We mean those also, as far as a website is mentioned below or when we speak of App.
- Our services are intended for the general public and not for children. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from users who are considered to be children under their respective national laws.
§ 2 Collection and processing of personal data
- Typically, you can use online services that do not require payment or registration without providing personal information. In certain cases, however, we process the personal data listed in section 3. This basically only happens if this is necessary to provide a functional website or app as well as our content and services. Furthermore, we process personal data in connection with the use of Traum-Ferienwohnungen, if you specify these on your own, such as for example in the context of a registration, a competition, a request to us, an application or because of a different legal basis (see section 4). Unfortunately, if you do not wish this, you will not be able to take full advantage of our services.
§ 3 Categories of processed data
- As soon as you use Traum-Ferienwohnungen, our system automatically records information from the computer system of the calling computer. The following data may be collected:
- Information about the browser type and version used
- Operating system of the user
- IP address of the requesting computer
- Mobile Device ID
- Date and time of access
- Web analysis data / pseudonymous usage profiles (Cookie ID, Ad ID etc.)
- Websites from which the user accesses our website
- Websites that the user accesses through our website
- In addition, we process the following personal data if there is a contractual relationship between you and us or if you have transmitted the data to us in other ways:
- Personal data (name, address, date of birth)
- Communication data (phone number, email address)
- Contract master data (contractual relationship, product or contract interest, order history)
- Login data with password
- billing and payment data
- Comments, contributions, etc.
- Employee data (name, address and communication data, contract master and payroll data, date of birth, marital status, nationality, denomination, field of activity, social benefits, payroll tax data, social data, bank details, personnel administration and control data, access and access control data)
- applicant data (name, address and communication data, application-relevant data)
§ 4 Legal basis and purpose of the processing
- The subject of Traum-Ferienwohnungen is the marketing and relaying of holiday homes and holiday properties. We therefore publish advertisements on our portal for web portal users who want to rent a holiday property (“home owners”) and make it available to web portal users (“holidaymakers”) who wish to rent a holiday home for viewing, contacting or booking.
- We process your data solely on the basis of one or more of the possible legal foundations.
- According to the GDPR, personal data may be processed in particular on the basis of a contract or for the performance of pre-contractual measures, in the presence of consent, on the basis of a legitimate interest or law and for the protection of vital or public interests.
- For the provision of certain content or services on our websites, for example in the context of arranging a request for a holiday accommodation as a guest to a holiday home owner, a registration is required. Each user can register free of charge with the name, surname, e-mail address and a password at Traum-Ferienwohnungen, whereby your registration data will be transmitted to us. The collection and processing of this data is carried out to fulfill the contract of use or agency agreement between us and the user, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.
- When purchasing a paid service, for example, if you want to use our portal as an owner of a vacation property, we use your contract master data including contact details for contract execution and fulfillment, as is the case for processing operations, for example, for a performance of other services or performances, as well as the enforcement of legal claims or claims is necessary (Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR). The same applies to processing operations that are necessary for the execution of pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries about our products / services. In the case of paid services, such as holiday home rental companies, we process certain data because we are subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations (Article 6 para. 1 letter c GDPR).
- We will also use your e-mail address collected in the course of registration or during the contract to inform you by e-mail about our own services or goods or in general about Traum-Ferienwohnungen. The processing of the e-mail address in this case is based on our legitimate interest in the application of our goods and services (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR).
- In addition, we use your e-mail address to send you our newsletter if you have given us your prior express consent to receive a newsletter or advertising. In this case, we will process your e-mail address in order to be able to deliver the newsletter as you wish (Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR). Mandatory information for sending the newsletter is your e-mail address alone. The indication of further possible data is voluntary and will be used to address you personally. We use the so-called double opt-in method. This means that we will only send you an e-mail newsletter if you have explicitly confirmed to us that you agree to the sending of the newsletter. We will then send you a confirmation e-mail asking you to confirm by clicking on a link that you wish to receive newsletters in the future. When registering for the newsletter, we will save your IP address entered by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) as well as the date and time of registration in order to be able to trace a possible misuse of your e-mail address at a later date. You may object to the use of your e-mail address for such purposes at any time in writing to email@example.com or An der Reeperbahn 6 in 28217 Bremen with effect for the future, without costs other than the transmission costs pursuant to the basic tariffs being incurred in this regard.
- On the Internet, each device requires a unique address for transmitting data, the so-called IP address. The at least temporary storage of the IP address is technically necessary to allow delivery of the website to the computer of the user. We shorten the IP addresses before any processing and process them only anonymously. There is no storage or further processing of the unabridged IP addresses. It also allows us to display regional content on all our websites that are located in a particular region. This so-called geo-localization, ie the assignment of a website call to the place of the call, takes place exclusively on the basis of the anonymized IP address and only up to the geographical level of the federal states / regions. From the geographic information obtained in this way, in no case can a conclusion be drawn on the specific location of a user. Our servers also store your IP address for 14 days for your own security.
- We offer a commentary function on our website and occasionally in blogs, with additional personal data being stored by you. If you have given your consent to this, you can in certain cases comment and subscribe to our website. The same applies to surveys in which you participate. If you want to post a comment, you must complete the fields provided. You can also use a pseudonym here. If you do not fill out the fields, you will not be able to post a comment. We collect and process the data provided by you in order to be able to publish your comment as requested (Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR). In particular, we also need your e-mail address to contact you in case of complaints of your comment and to give you the opportunity to comment (Article 6 (1) c GDPR).
- Processing operations that are not covered by one or more of the abovementioned legal bases are processed if they are necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest and do not outweigh your interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). A legitimate interest is to be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible. Based on the processing of personal data, our legitimate interest is, in particular, to conduct our business for the benefit of all of our employees and our shareholders.
- Our legitimate interest in being able to offer you customized and personalized products, to inform you about our products, innovations and quality features as well as to constantly improve and expand our services and products (also in terms of functionality) and thereby also increase our sales, is the legal basis for the processing for the purpose of direct marketing (own advertising and advertising of third parties), usage-based online advertising, web / app analysis and advertising scoring (combining different selection criteria for appropriate advertising). For web analysis services, see point 9.
- Our legitimate interest in fraud prevention, detection, prevention or otherwise combating fraud, security or technical issues, network and information security, and the reliability of our service or products, also serve as a legal basis for the processing of certain Dates.
- Another legitimate interest is the functionality of the business processes that result in processing for internal administrative purposes (eg address management / accounting).
- Another legitimate interest is the protection of the rights, property or security of vacation rentals, our users or the public from harm, to the extent permitted or required by law.
- Should you choose the method of purchase on account when concluding a fee-based contract, we will conduct a credit check to verify your creditworthiness based on our consent or our legitimate interest in avoiding the risk of unpaid receivables.
- We also rely on our legitimate interest to exercise the freedom of expression and information when processing personal data of the data subjects involved in our reporting.
- You may object to the processing on the basis of a legitimate interest at any time (see paragraph 14).
- In the event that the data is processed for a purpose other than that specified in the data collection, a compatibility check will be carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (4) GDPR. Further processing is only permitted if the original purpose is compatible with the new purpose or permitted on the basis of a separate legal basis. Recognized compatible purposes are u. a. the assertion, exercise or defense of civil law claims unless there is overriding interest of the data subject. In this case, we will inform you about the change of purpose. If the new purpose is not compatible with the purpose stated on the survey, a new survey will be carried out on the basis of a new legal basis. Again, we will inform you about the change of purpose.
§ 5 Place of processing
- We ourselves do not transfer your personal data to countries outside the European Economic Area, except in cases where it is permitted under the GDPR. Whether third parties with whom you have your own contractual relationship (such as with Facebook, if you have a Facebook account) transfer data to countries outside the European Economic Area is beyond our knowledge and influence.
§ 6 Origin of the data
- In certain cases, we also receive data because you have consented to the transfer to us. As you know, apps are regularly made available for download from third-party sites (such as iTunes, Google, etc.).
- If, according to the applicable terms and conditions of such a provider, the Traum-Ferienwohnungen GmbH becomes your contractual partner for the acquisition of the App, we will process the data provided to us by the third party to the extent necessary for the fulfillment of the contract to enable you to use the App on your mobile device can download.
§ 7 Disclosure of your data to third parties
- We only pass on your personal data to third parties if the transmission is necessary to fulfill our contractual obligations towards you and this is apparent at or jointly with another provider (eg in case of cooperation), we will forward it to otherwise legally entitled or obligated, or you have given us a corresponding consent.
- If you, as a user / holidaymaker, would like to contact a home owner about a vacation rental in order to book a certain holiday accommodation, we will provide the home owner with the data you have entered and the text of your request. In order to ensure the security of the communication, communication takes place via the servers of Traum-Ferienwohnungen. The messages sent via our mail server system are stored and processed on our servers. All information provided by home owners or holidaymakers via the mail server system is visible to the other party. However, this does not apply to the e-mail address specified or used by the parties. This is not visible to the other party for security reasons, but is automatically replaced by us with a placeholder. We can see the communication between the home owner and the holidaymaker, but only if this is necessary to ensure the safety of the contracting parties or proper brokerage. This is e.g. the case if parties to the contract are to be protected against crimes that are carried out by phishing or sending false e-mails.
- To provide our services, selected personal data within our company may be shared with certain departments. This includes employees in the Accounting, Product Management, Marketing and IT departments.
- In certain cases, we also use external service providers or affiliates who have been instructed by us to process data for us. Such service providers are contractually obligated by us to the strict requirements of the GDPR as contract processors and may not re-use your data for any other purpose. In particular, we use the following services: payment service (s), print shops, hosting, collection / receivables management, lettershop and newsletter delivery.
- The transfer of data to processors takes place on the basis of Art. 28 (1) GDPR, alternatively based on our legitimate interest in the economic and technical advantages associated with the use of specialized contract processors, Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.
- If we are legally obliged to do so or if this is permitted under data protection law, we transmit personal data to authorities, for example the police or the public prosecutor (Article 6 (1) c GDPR). Disclosure of this information is based on our legitimate interest in combating abuse, prosecuting crimes, and securing, enforcing, and enforcing claims, and that your rights and interests do not outweigh the protection of your personal information, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
§ 8 Cookies and similar technologies
We use two types of cookies. On the one hand technically necessary cookies, without which the functionality of our website would be limited as well as optional cookies, in order to make our website more user-friendly. The user data collected through technically necessary cookies will not be used to create user profiles. The use of the analysis cookies is for the purpose of improving the quality of our website and its contents. Through the analysis cookies, we learn how the website is used and so we can constantly optimize our offer. Further information on the individual analysis services can be found in Section 9 of this Privacy Notice.
Ads are mostly provided by third parties. They may use information about your visits, possibly through your device settings, to display ads about products and services that may interest you. Concrete contact information such as your name, address, e-mail address or telephone number will not be transferred under any circumstances.
You can prevent the setting of cookies by us at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If you deactivate the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.
When using apps, a technology similar in function is used instead of the cookie.
§ 8.1 Cookie-Settings
At Traum-Ferienwohnungen we always give you the possibility to make an informed decision about the usage of cookies. We have divided the cookies which are used on our website into the following categories:
- • Functional
- • Analysis & Statistics
- • Marketing
With the exception of the tags and cookies in the category “Necessary” you can choose if they should be used on this website or not:
§ 9 Web / App Analysis Services
In order to constantly improve our content and adapt it to the interests of our users as well as to display usage-based online advertising, we use some services that collect and evaluate data on our website or in the app. Insofar as these service providers are not themselves responsible in terms of data protection law, they always process the pseudo-nymised user data in accordance with instructions based on a job processing agreement. You can deactivate the individual analysis services at any time for the future. Below you can find details about the analysis services we use:
- We have integrated Google AdWords on this site. Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to run ads on Google’s search engine as well as on the Google Network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-set keywords that display an ad on Google’s search engine results only when the search engine retrieves a keyword-related search result. On the Google Network, the ads are distributed to topic-related sites using an automated algorithm and according to pre-defined keywords. The operating company for the services of Google AdWords is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. The purpose of Google Ad-Words is to promote our website by displaying interest-based advertising on third-party websites and in the search engine results of Google’s search engine and by displaying third-party ads on our website. If an affected person reaches our website via a Google ad, a so-called conversion cookie is filed on Google’s information technology system by Google. What cookies are, has already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and is not used to identify the person affected. If the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie is used to see whether certain sub-pages, for example the shopping cart from an online shop system, have been called up on our website. The conversion cookie tells both us and Google whether an affected person who came to our site through an AdWords ad generated revenue, ie, completed a purchase or canceled. The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to provide visitor statistics for our website. These search statistics are then used by us to determine the total number of users who have been sent to us through AdWords ads, in other words, to determine the success or failure of each AdWords ad and our AdWords ads for the future to optimize. Neither our company nor any other Google AdWords advertiser receives any information from Google that could identify the data subject
- The conversion cookie stores personally identifiable information, such as the websites visited by the affected person. Each time you visit our websites, personal information, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal information is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may transfer such personal data collected through the technical process to third parties. The affected person can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the data subject.
- In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs. Furthermore, the data subject has the opportunity to object to Google’s interest-based advertising. To do this, the data subject must access the https://www.google.com/settings/ads link from each of the internet browsers they use and make the desired settings there.
- We have integrated Google Analytics (with anonymization feature). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, storage and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analytics service collects information about which web site an affected person came to a web site (so-called referrers), which subpages of the web site were accessed, or how often and for what length of time a subpage was viewed. Web analytics is used primarily to optimize a website and cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising. The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
- We use the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp” for web analysis via Google Analytics. This addendum will truncate and anonymize Google’s IP address if Google accesses our websites from a Member State of the European Union or another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze visitor flows on our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, to compile for us online reports showing the activities on our websites, and to provide other services related to the use of our website to provide.
- Google Analytics sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are, has already been explained above. By using the cookie, Google will be able to analyze the use of our website. Each time you visit any of the pages on this site operated by us and which incorporates a Google Analytics component, the Internet browser on the subject’s information technology system is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component for the purpose of online analysis to Google. In the course of this technical process, Google receives information about personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which is used, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently make commission settlements possible.
- The cookie stores personally identifiable information, such as access time, the location from which access was made and the frequency of site visits by the data subject. Each time you visit our websites, your personal information, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal information is stored by Google in the United States by Ameri-ka. Google may transfer such personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.
- The affected person can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
- We’ve integrated DoubleClick by Google components into this site. Double-Click is a brand of Google, under which mainly special online marketing solutions are marketed to advertising agencies and publishers.
- DoubleClick by Google’s operating company is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
- DoubleClick by Google transmits data to the DoubleClick server with every impression, click, or other activity. Each of these transfers triggers a co-kie request to the affected person’s browser. If the browser accepts this request, DoubleClick sets a cookie on the information technology system of the person affected. What cookies are, has already been explained above. The purpose of the cookie is to optimize and display advertising. The cookie is used, among other things, to serve and display user-relevant advertisements, as well as to generate reports on advertising campaigns or to improve them. Furthermore, the cookie is used to avoid multiple impressions of the same advertising.
- DoubleClick uses a cookie ID, which is required to complete the technical process. For example, the cookie ID is needed to display an ad in a browser. DoubleClick can also use the cookie ID to see which ads have already appeared in a browser to avoid duplication. DoubleClick also allows the cookie ID to track conversions. Conversions are captured, for example, when a user has previously shown a DoubleClick ad and then, with the same internet browser, makes a purchase on the advertiser’s site.
- A DoubleClick cookie does not contain any personally identifiable information. However, a DoubleClick cookie may contain additional campaign identifiers. A campaign identifier identifies the campaigns the user was already in contact with. Each time you visit any of the pages on this site operated by us and incorporating a DoubleClick component, the Internet browser on the affected person’s information technology system will be automatically prompted by the applicable DoubleClick component for on-line data Advertising and offsetting commissions to Google. As part of this technical process, Google will be aware of data that Google uses to create commission billing. Google can understand, among other things, that the person has clicked on certain links on our website.
- Our website also uses Google Optimize. Google Optimize analyzes the use of different variations of our website and helps us to improve the user-friendliness according to the behavior of our users on the website. Google Optimize is a tool integrated with Google Analytics.
- Hotjar offers every user the option of using a “Do Not Track header” to prevent the use of the tool Hotjar, so that no data on the visit of the respective website are recorded. This is a setting that supports all common browsers in current versions. For this, your browser sends a request to Hotjar, with the hint to disable the tracking of the respective user. If you use this website with different browsers / computers, you must set up the “Do Not Track header” for each of these browsers / computers separately. For detailed instructions with information about your browser, see: https://www.hotjar.com/opt-out
- Our website uses the conversion tool “LinkedIn Insight Tag”, a product of LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2. LinkedIn Ads stores and processes information about your user behavior on our website. For this purpose, LinkedIn Ads uses, among other things, cookies, i.e. small text files that are stored locally in the cache of your web browser on your end device and that enable an analysis of your use of our website. We use LinkedIn Ads for marketing and optimization purposes, in particular to analyze the use of our website and to continuously improve individual functions and offers as well as the user experience. You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser accordingly. In this case, you may not be able to use all the functions of our website in full. You can prevent the collection of the aforementioned information by LinkedIn, for example, by setting an opt-out cookie on one of the websites linked below: https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls , http://optout.aboutads.info/?c=2#!/ , http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/ If you delete your cookies, you must set a new opt-out cookie. LinkedIn members can control the use of their personal data for advertising purposes in their account settings, at https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/enhanced-advertising . LinkedIn has submitted to the Privacy Shield agreement and has certified itself. You can find more information here: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000L0UZAA0&status=Active More information about LinkedIn’s privacy can be found here: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy .
Microsoft Advertising (Bing Ads)
- We use the conversion and tracking tool “Bing Ads” of Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA on our website. The use is based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a DSGVO. For this purpose, Microsoft stores cookies on users’ devices in order to enable an analysis of the use of our online offer by users, as far as users have reached our online offer via a Microsoft Bing ad (so-called “conversion monitoring). In this way, Microsoft and we can recognize that someone has clicked on an ad, has been redirected to our online offer and has reached a previously determined target page (so-called “conversion page”). We only learn the total number of users who clicked on a Bing ad and were then redirected to the conversion page. No IP addresses are stored. No personal information about the user’s identity is shared. Microsoft is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and thereby offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000KzNaAAK&status=Active). If you as a user do not want to participate in the tracking process of Bing Ads, you can also deactivate the setting of a cookie required for this via browser settings or use the opt-out page of Microsoft: http://choice.microsoft.com/de-DE/opt-out . Users can find further information on data protection and the cookies used by Microsoft Bing Ads in Microsoft’s data protection declaration: https://privacy.microsoft.com/de-de/privacystatement .
- On Traum-Ferienwohnungen, Optinmonster, a web analytics service provider of Retyp, LLC, 3701 Savoy Lane, 33417 West Palm Beach, Florida, United States, collects and stores data from which pseudonymous usage profiles are generated. These usage profiles are used to analyze visitor behavior and are evaluated to improve and customize our services. Cookies can be used. You can prevent the storage of cookies by an appropriate setting of your browser software.
Facebook conversion pixel
- We use the “conversion pixel” or visitor action pixel from Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). By calling this pixel from your browser, Facebook can see whether a Facebook ad was successful, for example led to an online purchase. For this we receive exclusively statistical data from Facebook without reference to a specific person. So we can track the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes. In particular, if you are logged in to Facebook, we also refer to their privacy information https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. Please click here if you wish to revoke your consent to conversion pixels: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads#=. Alternatively, you can disable the Facebook Pixel on the Digital Advertising Alliance page at the following link: http://www.aboutads.info/choices/
- You can deactivate the remarketing functionality „Custom Audiences“ within the settings for advertisements: https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen. You have to log in to Facebook to see and change the settings. If you do not have an Facebook account, you can deactivate the advertisement of Facebook through the website of the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices.
- This website uses the Google AdSense service, through which advertising tailored to your interests can be displayed to you. We use this service to display advertisements that may be of your interest in order to make our website more interesting for you. For this purpose, statistical information about you is collected and processed by our advertising partners. These advertisements can be identified by the label “Google Ads” in the respective advertisement.
- By visiting our website, Google receives the information that you have accessed our website. For this purpose, Google uses a web beacon to place a cookie on your computer. The data mentioned under section 3 of this policy may thus be transmitted. We have no influence on the collected data, nor are we aware of the full extent of the data collection and the storage period. Your data will be transferred to the USA and will be evaluated there. If you are logged in with your Google account, your data can be directly associated with it. If you do not want the association with your Google profile, you must log out. It is possible that this data is transmitted to contractual partners of Google, to third parties and authorities. The legal basis for the processing of your data is art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.
- You can prevent the installation of Google AdSense cookies in various ways: a) by adjusting your browser software settings accordingly, in particular the rejection of third-party cookies means that you will not be shown third-party advertisements; b) by deactivating interest-based advertisements at Google via the link http://www.google.de/ads/preferences, whereby this setting will be deleted if you delete your cookies; c) by deactivating the interest-based advertisements of the providers that are part of the self-regulation campaign “About Ads” via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices, whereby this setting will be deleted if you delete your cookies; d) by permanently deactivating it in your Firefox, Internetexplorer or Google Chrome browsers via the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this service to their full extent.
§ 10 Social Networks
You can also find us in social networks of third party companies, such as Facebook or Twitter. In addition, we have integrated individual functions of these networks into our online services. However, you can only use both if you are registered and logged in to the respective social network. Please note that the usage and privacy conditions of this company apply to the use of the respective social network, over which we have no influence. However, we are happy to explain how such networks process your personal information in this context.
- We have integrated components of the company Facebook on this website. Facebook is a social network.
- A social network is an Internet-based social meeting place, an online community that typically allows users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform to exchange views and experiences, or allows the Internet community to provide personal or business information. Facebook allows social network users to create private profiles, upload photos and socialize via friend requests.
- The operating company of Facebook is Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. Persons responsible for the processing of personal data, if an affected person lives outside the US or Canada, are Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland.
- Each visit to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by us and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject automatically by the respective Facebook component causes to download a presentation of the Facebook component. An overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_US. As part of this technical process, Facebook will be aware of which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject. If the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes with each visit to our website by the data subject and during the entire duration of the respective stay on our website, which specific underside of our website the data subject visits. This information is collected through the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject activates one of the Facebook buttons integrated in our website, for example the “Like” button, or if the data subject makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and saves it personal data.
