This means that the processing is necessary to protect our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. f DSGVO, i.e. to carry out our business activities.

Since the collection of data for the provision of our website and the storage of data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of our website, there is no possibility for you to object.

2. Cookies

We use so-called “cookies” on our website. These are small files that are automatically created by your browser and stored on your computer system when you visit our site. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer system and do not contain viruses, trojans or other malware.

The data collected in this way is pseudonymized through technical precautions. It is therefore not possible to trace the data back to you. The data is not stored together with other personal data.

Most browsers automatically accept cookies. However, to prevent this, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer system or a message always appears before a new cookie is created.

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 data from Google. The IP addresses are made anonymous, so that they cannot be traced.

  1. Transfer of Special Order Data to Third Countries

In order to fulfill our contractual obligations it may be necessary, depending on the subject matter of the contract, that we pass on some personal data to subcontractors in countries outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA).

This is done exclusively on the basis of your explicit consent obtained beforehand for the purpose of executing the order. This only affects the link to your publicly available profile on a social network specified in the order together with information that is absolutely necessary for the execution of the order (depending on the order content, the desired number of likes, fans, plays, views, followers, subscribers). This information may be passed on to subcontractors in one or more of the countries listed below: United States of America (USA), Brazil, India, Russia, China (Hong Kong), Macedonia, Thailand.

We would like to point out that for the states mentioned above, there is neither a decision of the European Commission on an adequate level of data protection nor sufficient guarantees to establish an adequate level of data protection. Accordingly, there is an increased risk that the data mentioned in the section above – and only this data – will be processed in contravention of the basic principles and requirements of data protection law within the European Union and the European Economic Area.

Other or more extensive personal data will not be passed on in this or any other context to countries outside the EU or EEA on the basis of consent obtained from you. With regard to data transfers in other contexts, we refer to Section F. or the explanations in the other sections of this Privacy Policy.

The legal basis for processing this data abroad is your consent, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. You have the possibility to revoke your consent to the processing of your data at any time. To do so, please use the above-mentioned contact options. In the event of a revocation, all your personal data transmitted for this purpose will be deleted.

5. Use of Email Address for the Purpose of Direct Advertising

If a contract is concluded via our online store, we use the email address you provide in connection with the order to send you electronic direct mail.

Technically, the electronic transmission of advertising is carried out in accordance with the explanations in this privacy policy in section “I. NEWSLETTER”.

Notwithstanding section “I. NEWSLETTER”, the processing of data in this context is for the purpose of advertising our products to relevant existing customers (those who have already purchased similar products from us). Our legitimate interest here is the execution of our business activities and the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, § 7 para. 3 UWG.

You may object to this data processing at any time (see section “J. RIGHT OF OBJECTION”). In addition, every email from our direct marketing department contains a link to exercise your right of objection.

F. Processing in Third Countries in General

Unless otherwise stated above, your personal data will be processed in countries outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA) exclusively on the basis of the legal requirements pursuant to Art. 44 DSGVO. This is exclusively the case either on the basis of an adequacy decision of the European Commission (Art. 45 DSGVO) and/or on the basis of appropriate guarantees (Art. 46 DSGVO).

G. General Storage Time

In general, personal data is stored exclusively for as long as it is necessary to fulfill the purpose of data collection or to comply with the respective legal retention period. After the purpose has ceased to apply or the period has expired, the data will be deleted.

H. Rights of Data Subjects

As far as we have processed your personal data, you are a data subject in terms of the DSGVO and you have the following rights against us:

Art. 18 DSGVO – You can demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data if the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, if the processing is unlawful but you refuse to delete it and we no longer need the data, but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or if you have lodged an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO.

Art. 20 DSGVO – You may receive the personal data you have provided in a structured, common and machine-readable format or request that it be transferred to another responsible party.

I. NEWSLETTER

We offer a newsletter service in which we inform the recipients about our services (newsletter subscription). To receive this newsletter, you must register for it on our site. The data entered by you during the registration process will be transmitted to us and will only be used to send the newsletter.

This involves:

  • (1) The e-mail address you provided
  • (2) The IP address of the computer system you are using
  • (3) Date and time of registration

We need your email address to send you the newsletter. The remaining information is required to prevent misuse of our e-mail address and the e-mail address you have provided.

The voluntary details enable us to provide you with more targeted information about our services. However, this information is not required for sending the newsletter.

For shipping we use “MailChimp”, a service of the Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. The above mentioned data will be transferred to this company as part of the order processing according to art. 28 para. 3 p. 1 DSGVO, i.e. the company will not use this data to contact you directly or to pass the data on to third parties.

When using services of Rocket Science Group, LLC, data transfer takes place to countries outside the European Union or the European Economic Area. An adequate level of data protection is guaranteed by the use of standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission in the sense of Art. 46 para. 2 lit. c) DSGVO.

We analyze the reading behavior of our newsletter mailings and can calculate the opening rate and click rate. We are able to attribute this behavior to individual newsletter recipients. This is done with the purpose of making our newsletter even more interesting and adapt it to the needs of our interested parties.

Before sending your registration to receive our newsletter, your consent will be obtained and reference will be made to this data protection declaration (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO).

A termination of the subscription and thus an objection and removal possibility of the data processing is possible at any time. For this purpose, each email of our newsletter contains a corresponding link for cancellation.

J. Right of Objection

If your personal data is processed on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1, sentence 1, lit. f) DSGVO, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO, if there are reasons for doing so arising from your particular situation or if the objection is directed against direct marketing. In the latter case, you have a general right of objection, which will be implemented by us without specifying a special situation.

If you wish to make use of your right of revocation or objection, simply send an email to contact@socialmediadaily.com
