Legal bases

The processing of personal data can be based on various legal bases. If we need your data to fulfill a contract with you or to respond to inquiries from you regarding a contract, the legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. b GDPR. If we obtain your consent for certain data processing, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1. s. 1 lit. a GDPR. We carry out some data processing on the basis of our legitimate interest, always weighing your interests worthy of protection against our legitimate interests. The legal basis here is Art. 6 para. s. 1 lit. f GDPR. Insofar as the processing is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which we are subject, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. c GDPR.

Data transfer

A transfer of your personal data to third parties does not take place in principle, unless we are legally obliged to do so, or the data transfer is necessary for the implementation of the contractual relationship or you have previously expressly consented to the transfer of your data.

External service providers and partner companies, such as online payment providers only receive your data to the extent that this is necessary to process your order. In these cases, however, the scope of the transmitted data is limited to the necessary minimum. Insofar as our service providers process your personal data on our behalf, we ensure within the framework of order processing pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR that they comply with the provisions of data protection laws in the same manner. Please also note the data protection notices of the respective providers. The respective service provider is responsible for the content of third-party services, whereby we check the services for compliance with the legal requirements within the scope of reasonableness.

We attach importance to processing your data within the EU / EEA. However, it may happen that we use service providers who process data outside the EU / EEA. In these cases, we ensure that an adequate level of data protection comparable to the standards within the EU is established at the recipient prior to the transfer of your personal data. This can be achieved, for example, via EU Standard Contractual Clauses (“SCC”) or Binding Corporate Rules or special agreements to whose regulations the company may be subject.

Newsletter

General information

You can subscribe to various newsletters on our website, which we use to inform you about our company's activities, current information about our services, special offers, promotions, events and competitions. The content of the individual newsletter will be briefly described during the registration process. The legal basis for sending the respective newsletter is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR.

For the registration to our newsletters we use the so-called double-opt-in procedure. This means that after your registration, we will send you an e-mail to the e-mail address you provided, in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration, your information will be automatically deleted after 3 days.

Mandatory information for sending the newsletter is only your e-mail address. The provision of further data is voluntary: this data is used to address you personally. After your confirmation, we store your e-mail address for the purpose of sending the newsletter and until revoked. We also store your IP address current at the time of registration, the time of registration and confirmation for up to three years after registration (statute of limitations). The purpose of this procedure is to be able to prove your registration in case of doubt and, if necessary, to clarify any misuse of your personal data. The legal basis for logging the registration is our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR in proving a formerly given consent, see also Art. 7 para. 1 GDPR.

You can revoke your consent to the sending of the newsletter at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can declare the revocation by clicking on the link provided in every newsletter email or by sending an email to advertiser@gipedo.io.

Newsletter Tracking

We would like to point out that we evaluate your user behavior when sending the newsletter to determine whether and when the newsletter was opened. For this evaluation, the sent e-mails contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which are stored on our server and are loaded when the newsletter is opened. Technical information such as browser type, time of opening and IP address are transmitted. For the evaluations, we link the above data and the web beacons with your e-mail address and an individual ID. Links received in the newsletter also contain this ID and allow us to analyze your click behavior.

With the data obtained, we create a user profile in order to tailor the newsletter to your individual interests. In doing so, we record when you read our newsletters, which links you click on in them and infer your personal interests from this. We link this data to actions you have taken on our website. The legal basis for this data processing is your consent, Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit.a GDPR.

You may revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. In this case, the revocation includes the entire newsletter, as a separate revocation of the tracking is unfortunately not technically possible. To do this, simply click the unsubscribe link provided in each e-mail.

Moreover, such tracking is not possible if you have deactivated the display of images by default in your e-mail program. In this case, the newsletter will not be fully displayed to you and you may not be able to use all of its features. If you display the images manually, the tracking mentioned above will take place.

The information from the tracking is stored as long as you are subscribed to the newsletter. After unsubscribing, the data is anonymized and used for purely statistical purposes.

The data you provide for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data that has been stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this.

For more information on our newsletter hoster, see “Marketing / Hubspot".
