Use of the website
The present data protection declaration applies to the use of this website and the associated collection and processing of (personal) data.
Collection of personal data
Each time you access our website, your terminal device transmits the following information to enable you to visit the website:
- IP address
- Date and time of the request
- Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
- Content of the request (specific page)
- Access status/HTTP status code
- Amount of data transferred in each case
- Website from which the request comes
- Browser and browser settings
- Operating system and its interface
- Language and version of the browser software
The IP address of your computer is only stored for the time of your use of the website and then deleted or made anonymous by shortening it, unless longer storage is necessary to ensure the functionality or security of the website (e.g. in the event of Internet attacks). The remaining data is stored for a limited period of time, whereby it is no longer possible to establish a personal reference from this data, as the associated IP address is deleted or anonymised. We use this data for the operation of our website, in particular to detect and eliminate website errors, to determine the utilisation of the website and to make adjustments or improvements.
Personal data (name, address, e-mail address, etc.) that you voluntarily disclose to us, e.g. by registering for a newsletter, contacting us or applying for membership, is stored by us for the purpose of providing the associated services (e.g. sending newsletters, managing membership) and for the duration of the usage or membership relationship, unless a longer storage period is required for the purposes of fulfilling a contractual obligation or for asserting or defending legal claims.
You can revoke your consent at any time without giving reasons, please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Personal data that you submit electronically on this website, such as your name, e-mail address, address or other personal details, will only be used by us for the purpose stated, kept secure and not passed on to third parties.
When you use our website, so-called “cookies” are stored on your terminal device. Cookies are small files that enable this website to store specific, user-related information on the visitor’s computer while our website is being visited. Cookies help us to determine the frequency of use and the number of users of our website, as well as to design our offers for you comfortably and efficiently. We use session cookies, which are only temporarily stored for the duration of your use of our website, and permanent cookies to record information about visitors who repeatedly access our website. The purpose of using these cookies is to be able to offer an optimal user experience as well as to recognise visitors and to be able to present a website that is as attractive as possible and interesting content in the event of repeated use. The content of a permanent cookie is limited to an identification number. Name, IP address etc. are not stored. Individual profiling of your usage behaviour does not take place. It is also possible to use our offers without cookies
If you do not wish to use browser cookies, you can set your browser so that it does not accept cookies. If you prevent the storage of cookies, we would like to point out that you may not be able to use our website to its full extent.
Use of social media
Our website offers you the opportunity to share links to our content on social media platforms by means of so-called “social bookmarks”, whereby initially no personal data is transmitted to these providers. Only when you click on one of the social media symbols will personal data be transmitted: When you call up the website of the respective social media provider, data is automatically transmitted to the respective service provider and stored there (including in the case of US providers in the USA). We have no influence on the collected data and data processing procedures, nor are we aware of the full extent of the data collection, the purposes and the storage periods.
For more information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by the respective social media service, please refer to the data protection declarations of these providers. There you will also receive further information on your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy.
Integration of third-party technologies
Third-party services and libraries are integrated into our website, in particular from jQuery.com and Google (e.g. web fonts, maps), in order to optimise loading speeds and page display. This involves calling up resources of these providers from external servers (and thus also the transmission of data such as the IP address), which may be located outside the European Union. We have no influence on the data collected and data processing procedures, nor are we aware of the full extent of the data collection, the purposes and the storage periods. Further information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by these third parties can be found in the respective data protection declarations of these providers. There you will also receive further information on your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy.
Registration for our newsletter and unsubscription (objection)
bit Management GmbH regularly sends out newsletters. If you have expressly consented in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO, we will use your e-mail address to send you our newsletter on a regular basis. To receive the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide an e-mail address. You can unsubscribe at any time, for example via a link at the end of each newsletter. Alternatively, you can also send your unsubscribe request at any time by e-mail to email@example.com.
We maintain up-to-date technical measures to ensure data security, in particular to protect your personal data from risks during data transmission and from third parties gaining knowledge. In particular, our website uses encrypted transmission via SSL (Secure Socket Layer) or TLS (Transport Layer Security).
Collection of general information
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider and similar. This is exclusively information that does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person. This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the contents of web pages requested by you and is compulsory when using the Internet. Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us in order to optimise our Internet presence and the technology behind it.
Provision of chargeable services
For the provision of chargeable services, we request additional data, such as payment details.
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption procedures (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.
If you contact us by e-mail or contact form, the information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and for possible follow-up questions.
If you contact us via feedback form, the information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry as well as for possible follow-up questions. The following fields are used: Feedback, name/company, telephone, mail, selection fields opinion, text.
Deletion or blocking of data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as stipulated by the various storage periods provided for by law. After the respective purpose has ceased to exist or these periods have expired, the corresponding data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (hereinafter: Google). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymisation on these websites, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
In addition or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prevent tracking by Google Analytics on our pages by clicking on the following link (Stop tracking). This will install an opt-out cookie on your device. This will prevent the collection by Google Analytics for this website and for this browser in the future, as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.
Use of Google Maps
Detailed instructions on how to manage your own data in connection with Google products can be found at the following link: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/3024190
Embedded YouTube videos
We embed YouTube videos on some of our websites. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection to YouTube servers is established. This tells Youtube which pages you are visiting. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can assign your surfing behaviour to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your Youtube account first.
If you have deactivated the saving of cookies for the Google Ad programme, you will not have to expect any such cookies when watching Youtube videos. However, Youtube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you wish to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in your browser.
Further information on data protection at “Youtube” can be found in the provider’s data protection declaration at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
We have integrated the social media buttons of the following companies on our website:
Facebook Inc. (1601 S. California Ave – Palo Alto – CA 94304 – USA)
Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you have reached our website via an ad placed by Google, a cookie will be set on your computer by Google AdWords. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognise that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across AdWords customers’ websites. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged 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, you can reject the setting of a cookie required for this – for example, by means of a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies or by setting your browser in such a way that cookies from the domain “googleleadservices.com” are blocked.
Please note that you may not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not want any measurement data to be recorded. If you have deleted all your cookies in the browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.
Your rights to information, correction, blocking, deletion and objection
You have the right to obtain information about your personal data stored by us at any time. You also have the right to have your personal data corrected, blocked or, apart from the mandatory data storage for business processing, deleted. Please contact our data protection officer for this purpose. You will find the contact details at the bottom of this page.
To ensure that a blocking of data can be taken into account at any time, this data must be kept in a blocking file for control purposes. You can also request the deletion of data, unless there is a legal archiving obligation. If such an obligation exists, we will block your data upon request.
You can make changes or revoke consent by notifying us accordingly with effect for the future.
Changes to our data protection policy
We reserve the right to amend this data protection declaration from time to time so that it always complies with the current legal requirements or in order to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services.
