III. General information on data processing

1. Scope of the processing of personal data

As a matter of principle, we process personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website and our contents and services. The processing of personal data of our users regularly only takes place with the user's consent. An exception is made in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

As far as we obtain the consent of the person concerned for processing of personal data, Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. a of the EU Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis. When processing personal data which is necessary for the execution of a contract to which the concerned person is a party, Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. b DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations which are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. Where processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis. If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.

3. Data deletion and storage duration

The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the person responsible is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted when a storage period prescribed by the above-mentioned standards expires, unless there is a need to continue storing the data for the purpose of concluding or fulfilling a contract.

4. Information disclosure

A transmission of your personal data to third parties for other purposes than those listed below does not take place.

We only pass on your personal data to third parties if:

  • you have given your express consent pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO,

  • the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in not disclosing your data,

  • in the event that there is a legal obligation for disclosure under Art. 6 paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. c DSGVO, and

  • this is legally permissible and required under Art. 6 paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. b DSGVO for the processing of contractual relationships with you.

IV. Provision of the website and creation of log files

1. Description and scope of data processing

Whenever you access our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer, which is also stored in the log files of our system. The following information is recorded without your intervention and stored until it is automatically deleted:

  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system used
  • Website from which you visit us (referrer URL)
  • Website that you visit
  • Date and time of your access
  • Your Internet Protocol (IP) address
  • „Internet Service Provider“

This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.

2. Legal basis for the data processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. f DSGVO.

3. Purpose of the data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user's computer. For this purpose, the user's IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session. The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data serves us to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session is ended. In the case of storage of the data in log files, this is the case after three months at the latest. Storage beyond this period is possible.

5. Possibility of objection and removal

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. There is therefore no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

V. Use of cookies

1. Description and scope of data processing

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in the web browser or by the web browser on the user's computer system. If a user calls up a website, a cookie may be stored on the user's operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic string of characters that enables the browser to be uniquely identified when the website is called up again.

VI. Newsletter

1. Description and scope of data processing

On our website there is the possibility to subscribe to a free newsletter. When registering for the newsletter, the data from the entry template will be transmitted to us. For the processing of the data, your consent will be obtained during the registration process and reference will be made to this data protection declaration.

2. Legal basis for the data processing

The legal basis for the processing of data after registration for the newsletter by the user is Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. a DSGVO if the user has given his consent.

3. Purpose of the data processing

The collection of the user's e-mail address serves the purpose of sending the newsletter.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose for which they were collected. The user's e-mail address is therefore stored for as long as the subscription to the newsletter is active.

5. Possibility of objection and removal

The subscription to the newsletter can be cancelled by the user concerned at any time. For this purpose there is a corresponding link in every newsletter.

6. Use of MailChimp

Information about the newsletter and consent
With the following information, we would like to inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedure and your rights of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to receive it and to the described procedures.

Content of the newsletter
We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications containing advertising information (hereinafter "newsletters") only with the consent of the recipients or with a legal permission. If, in the course of registering for the newsletter, its contents are specifically described, they are decisive for the consent of the users. Furthermore our newsletter contains information about developments in the field of standardization, news in the field of technology, current industry projects as well as news around ITEK.

Double-Opt-In and logging
The registration to our newsletter is done in a so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after registration you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with foreign e-mail addresses.
The newsletter registrations are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time as well as the IP address. Changes to your data stored with MailChimp are also logged.

Use of the dispatch service provider "MailChimp
The newsletters are sent via "MailChimp", a newsletter dispatch platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.
The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described in this notice, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore MailChimp may use this data according to its own information to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for technical optimization of sending and presentation of newsletters or for economic purposes to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to contact them itself or pass them on to third parties.
We trust in the reliability and the IT- and data security of MailChimp. MailChimp is certified under the US-EU data protection agreement "Privacy Shield" and therefore commits itself to comply with the EU data protection regulations. Furthermore, we have concluded a "Data-Processing-Agreement" with MailChimp. This is a contract in which MailChimp commits itself to protect the data of our users, to process it according to its data protection regulations on our behalf and especially not to pass it on to third parties. The privacy policy of MailChimp can be viewed here.

Registration data
To subscribe to the newsletter, it is sufficient to enter your e-mail address.
Optionally we ask you to enter your first and last name. This information is only used to personalize the newsletter.


Statistical survey and analyses
The newsletters contain a so-called "web-beacon", i.e. a pixel-sized file which is retrieved from the server of MailChimp when the newsletter is opened. In the context of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval are collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined by means of the IP address) or the access times.


Statistical surveys also include determining whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our nor MailChimp's intention to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our contents to them or to send different contents according to the interests of our users.


Online access and data management
There are cases where we direct the newsletter recipients to the web pages of MailChimp. E.g. our newsletters contain a link with which the newsletter recipients can retrieve the newsletters online (e.g. in case of display problems in the email program). Furthermore, newsletter recipients can correct their data, e.g. the e-mail address, afterwards. Also the privacy policy of MailChimp is only available on their site.
In this context we would like to point out that on the websites of MailChimp cookies are used and therefore personal data is processed by MailChimp, its partners and used service providers (e.g. Google Analytics). We have no influence on this data collection. Further information can be found in the privacy policy of MailChimp. We would also like to draw your attention to the possibility to object to the collection of data for advertising purposes on the websites www.aboutads.info/choices and www.youronlinechoices.com (for the European area).

VII. Contact form and e-mail contact

1. Description and scope of data processing

On our website there is a contact form which can be used for electronic contact. If a user takes advantage of this possibility, the data entered in the input mask is transmitted to us and stored. These data are:

  • Name
  • E-Mail
  • Message

For the processing of the data, your consent will be obtained during the sending process and reference will be made to this data protection declaration. In this case the personal data of the user transmitted with the e-mail will be stored.

In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data will be used exclusively for processing the conversation.

2. Legal basis for the data processing

The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. a DSGVO if the user has given his consent. The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. f DSGVO. If the e-mail contact is aimed at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for processing is Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. b DSGVO.

3. Purpose of the data processing

The processing of the personal data from the data  template serves us only for the processing of the establishment of contact. In the case of contacting us by e-mail, this is also the necessary legitimate interest in the processing of the data.

The other personal data processed during the sending process serves to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose for which they were collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation ends when it can be concluded from the circumstances that the matter in question has been finally clarified.

The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.

5. Possibility of objection and removal

The user has the possibility to revoke his consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by e-mail, he can object to the storage of his personal data at any time. In such a case the conversation cannot be continued.

VIII. Analysis and tracking tools

The tracking measures listed below and used by us are carried out on the basis of Art. 6 paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. With the tracking measures we use, we want to ensure that our website is designed to meet the needs of our customers and is continuously optimized. On the other hand, we use the tracking measures to record the use of our website statistically and evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our offer for you. These interests are to be regarded as justified in the sense of the aforementioned regulation.

The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be taken from the corresponding tracking tools.

  1. Google Analytics

For the purpose of designing our pages to meet your needs and continuously optimizing them, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; in the following "Google"). In this context, pseudonymized user profiles are created and cookies (see section 4) are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as

  • Browser type/version,

  • used operating system,

  • Referrer URL (the previously visited page),

  • Host name of the accessing computer (IP address),

  • Time of the server request,

are transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services associated with the use of the website and the Internet for the purposes of market research and the design of these web pages in line with requirements. This information may also be transferred to third parties if required by law or if third parties process this data on our behalf. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other Google data. The IP addresses are made anonymous, so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking).

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).

As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent future collection of your data when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you will need to set the opt-out cookie again.

Further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics can be found in the Google Analytics help (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de).

2. Google Adwords Conversion Tracking

In order to record the use of our website statistically and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our website for you, we also use Google Conversion Tracking. Google Adwords sets a cookie (see section 4) on your computer if you have reached our website via a Google ad.

These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of the AdWords client's website and the cookie has not expired, Google and the client will be able to tell that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page.

Every Adwords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked through the websites of Adwords clients. The information collected through the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for Adwords clients who have opted for conversion tracking. Adwords advertisers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users.

If you do not wish to participate in the tracking process, you can also refuse the necessary setting of a cookie - for example, by changing your browser settings to generally disable the automatic setting of cookies. You can also disable cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain  „www.googleadservices.com“. Google's privacy policy on conversion tracking can be found here (https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html).

3. LinkedIn

The LinkedIn Insight tag allows us to collect information about visits to your website, including URL, referrer URL, IP address, device and browser properties (user agent), and timestamps. This data is encrypted, IP addresses are truncated and the direct IDs of members are removed within seven days to make the data pseudonymous. This remaining pseudonymous data is then deleted within 90 days.

LinkedIn does not share any personally identifiable information with the site owner, but only provides aggregate reports about the site's audience and ad performance. LinkedIn also provides retargeting for website visitors, allowing the website owner to use this data to display targeted advertising outside of their website without identifying the member. LinkedIn members can control the use of their personal information for advertising purposes in their account settings. 
For more information, please see the LinkedIn Privacy Policy at: www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy

 

4. Facebook pixel

The Facebook pixel stores a cookie on your device when you visit ours. If you are logged in to Facebook at the same time or log in to Facebook afterwards, your visit to this Wirecard website will be recorded in your Facebook profile. The personal data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and the data can be used for market research and advertising purposes.

Hier kann das Facebook-Tracking deaktiviert werden.

The processing of the data by Facebook takes place within the framework of Facebook's Data Use Policy. More information and details about the Facebook pixel and how it works can be found in Facebooks help section.

IX. Social Media Plug-ins

We use social plug-ins from the social networks Facebook, Xing, Twitter and Instagram on our website on the basis of Art. 6 paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO to increase awareness of our company. The underlying advertising purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the meaning of the DSGVO. The responsibility for data protection compliant operation is to be guaranteed by their respective providers. The integration of these plug-ins by us takes place by means of the so-called two-click method in order to protect visitors to our website in the best possible way.

1. Facebook

On our website, social media plugins from Facebook are used to make their use more personal. For this we use the "LIKE" or "SHARE" button. This is an offer from Facebook.

If you call up a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser, which integrates it into the website.

Through the integration of the plugin, Facebook receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not currently logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.

If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign your visit to our website directly to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the "LIKE" or "SHARE" button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on Facebook and displayed to your Facebook friends.

Facebook may use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and the design of Facebook pages to meet the needs of the market. For this purpose, Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles, e.g. to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the advertisements displayed on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide other services associated with the use of Facebook.

If you do not want Facebook to assign the data collected via our website to your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.

For the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by Facebook, as well as your rights and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to the privacy policy of Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/).

2. Xing

Our website also uses plugins from Xing. The social network "Xing" is operated by Xing AG, Dammtorstraße 30, 20354 Hamburg, DE; http://www.xing.com/privacy. Within the framework of the website, this plugin is identified by the Xing logo. If you call up a page on our website that contains such a plugin, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Xing server. Xing thus contains the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you maintain a user account with this provider and are logged in, the retrieved data is assigned to this account. If you do not wish to have such an assignment, you must log out of Xing before you visit the website.

Further details can be found in the Privacy policy of Xing.

3. Twitter

On our website you will find plugins of the short news network of Twitter Inc. (Twitter) are integrated. You can recognize the Twitter plugins (tweet button) by the Twitter logo on our site. You can find an overview of tweet buttons here (https://about.twitter.com/resources/buttons).

When you access a page on our website that contains such a plugin, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Twitter server. Twitter thereby receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click on the Twitter "tweet button" while you are logged in to your Twitter account, you can link the contents of our pages on your Twitter profile. This allows Twitter to associate your visit to our pages with your user account. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the pages, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Twitter.

If you do not want Twitter to be able to track visits to our site, please log out of your Twitter account.

For further information, please refer to the privacy policy of Twitter ((https://twitter.com/privacy).

4. Instagram

Our site also uses social plug-ins ("Plug-ins") from Instagram, which is operated by Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA ("Instagram").

The plugins are marked with an Instagram logo, for example in the form of an "Instagram Camera".

When you access a page on our website that contains such a plug-in, your browser will establish a direct connection to Instagram's servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Instagram directly to your browser and integrated into the page. This integration informs Instagram that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have an Instagram profile or are not currently logged in to Instagram.

This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to an Instagram server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged in to Instagram, Instagram can directly attribute your visit to our website to your Instagram account. When you interact with the plug-ins, for example by clicking the "Instagram" button, this information is also transmitted directly to an Instagram server and stored there.

The information is also published to your Instagram account and displayed to your contacts.

If you do not want Instagram to associate the information collected through our website directly with your Instagram account, you must log out of Instagram before visiting our website.

For more information, please see the Privacy Policy of Instagram (https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388)
