Data Protection Declaration

1) Preamble

Welcome to our website! We place greatest value on protecting your data and safeguarding your privacy. In the following, we would like to outline which data we process when and to what purpose and on what legal basis. In this presentation we will explain how our offered services operate and how we guarantee the protection of your personal data.

According to Article 4, No. 1 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), personal data entails all information referring to an identified or identifiable natural person. A natural person is considered as identifiable if he/she can be directly or indirectly identified. Additional information on this subject is available, for example, in Article 4, No. 1 of the GDPR.

This Data Protection Declaration can be accessed at any time at https://www.einkaufserlebnis-trier.de/en/data-protection-declaration, saved, and printed.

Insofar as we cite our legitimate interest or a legitimate interest of a third party (point (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR), you are entitled to exercise your right to object according to Article 21 of the GDPR:

According to Article 21 of the GDPR, you have the right

to object at any time to the processing of your personal data. We then no longer process your personal data for direct marketing purposes or for profiling connected to such marketing.

Following an objection, we also no longer process your personal data for other purposes, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing which override your interests, rights, and freedoms, or unless the processing serves the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims (see, for example, Article 21(1) of the GDPR, „limited right to object“). In this case you must show grounds for the objection which result from your special situation.

You can also object to the processing of your personal data on grounds of your special situation which are used for scientific or historical research or for statistical purposes according to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest (see Article 21(6) of the GDPR).

We will again separately point to the right to object in the individual paragraphs (for example, with the notice: „You have the right to object“”) insofar as this right exists. You will also find additional information there for exercising your right to object.

To retain clarity in the following Data Protection Declaration, in different places we will indicate through links to information and data protection pointers which can be found on external websites (see also paragraph „Social Networks & External Links“ in this Data Protection Declaration). We endeavor to keep the links we list in this Data Protection Declaration up to date. Nevertheless, because of the constant updating of websites, it cannot be ruled out that links do not function correctly. If you become aware of such a broken link, we would be pleased if you would inform us, so that we can update the link.

4) Log Files

Every time you open our website, we gather automatized data and information from your device system and store it in so-called server log files.

8) Information on Google Services

We use different services from Google, Inc. (“Google”) on our website, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

More detailed information on Google’s individual services is available in the further Data Protection Declaration.

Because Google services are included, Google may collect information (also personal data) and processes them. Therefore, it cannot be excluded that Google also transmits the information to a server in a third country.

As stated in the Privacy Shield Certification from Google (available at https://www.privacyshield.gov/list under the search keyword “Google”), Google has pledged to observe the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework concerning the collection, use, and storage of personal data from the member states of the EU and Switzerland. Google, including Google LLC and its 100 % subsidiaries in the US, has declared through certification that it will observe the Privacy Shield principles. Further information on this subject is available at https://policies.google.com/privacy/frameworks?gl=de.

We ourselves cannot influence which data Google actually collects and processes. Google states, however, that basically it is possible the following information (also personal data) will be processed:

  • Protocol data (especially the IP address)
  • Location-specific information
  • Definitive application numbers
  • Cookies and similar technologies

If you are logged into your Google account, Google can add the processed information to your account depending on your account settings and treat it as personal data; see especially https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites?hl=de.

Google states, for example, the following:

„We may combine the information we collect among our services and across your devices for the purposes described above. For example, if you watch videos of guitar players on YouTube, you might see an ad for guitar lessons on a site that uses our ad products. Depending on your account settings, your activity on other sites and apps may be associated with your personal information in order to improve Google’s services and the ads delivered by Google.“ (https://policies.google.com/privacy)

You can prevent this data from being directly added by logging out of your Google account or by activating the appropriate account settings in your Google account. Moreover, you can prevent the installation of cookies – providing Google would set any – with appropriate settings in your browser. We would like to point out to you, however, that, in this case, you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

Here is how to delete cookies on the most common browsers:

  • Google Chrome:
  • Mozilla Firefox:
  • Apple Safari:
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer:

More detailed information is available in the Data Protection pointers from Google, which you can retrieve here:

9) Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics on our website, a web analysis service from Google, Inc. (“Google”), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies,” text files which are stored on your device and which permit an analysis of your use of the websites you visit. Google Analytics may also use so-called web beacons (invisible graphics), through which information such as user traffic on websites can be evaluated. The information created by cookies and web beacons about the use of our website (including the user’s IP address) are transmitted to a Google server, possibly in the US or another third country, and stored there. Google can transmit this information to Google contract partners.

Information on Google’s existing Privacy-Shield Certification and further relevant data on data processing by Google in the course of using Google services is available in this Data Protection Declaration under the heading „8) Information on Google Services“.

Google processes the following types of data:

  • Online labeling (including cookie identifiers)
  • IP-address
  • Device identifiers

More detailed information on the processed data is available at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en#infocollect under “Information we collect as you use our services” as well as at https://privacy.google.com/businesses/adsservices/.

We use Google Analytics only with activated IP anonymization (“anonymize IP”). Through this principle, Google shortens your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other contract states of the agreement across the European Economic Area. The complete IP address is transmitted to a Google server in the US only in exceptional cases and shortened there.

Moreover, we have closed a contract with Google for using Google Analytics for processing (Article 28 GDPR). We commission Google to process the data to evaluate your use of our website, to collect reports for us on the website activities, and to perform services for us concerned with website use and Internet use. Google may transmit this information to third parties, provided this is legally prescribed or provided third parties process these data as commissioned by Google.

We include Google Analytics because we wish to analyze user behavior on our website and to be able to react appropriately on this use. In that manner we can continually improve our offer.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data described here is Article 6, § 1 lit. f) of the GDPR. Our necessary legitimate interest lies in the great advantage of having the functions for our offer as described above. The statistical evaluation of user behavior enables us to react in particular in our own interests and to optimize our offer.

Google is entitled to commission subprocessors within the framework of the processing. A list of these subprocessors is available at https://privacy.google.com/businesses/subprocessors/.

Right to object

You have a right to object. You can prevent Google from processing your data by downloading and installing a browser plug-in available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

You can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set which will prevent future collection of your data when you open this website: deactivate Google Analytics

Furthermore, you can prevent the collection of data by web beacons by downloading and installing the add-on for the respective browser available at the following link:

https://adblockplus.org/

In addition, you can prevent the installation of cookies with appropriate settings in your browser; we would like to point out to you, however, that you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

How you can delete cookies in the most common browsers and alter the cookie settings, among other things, is given in the following:

  • Google Chrome:
  • Mozilla Firefox:
  • Apple Safari:
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer:

The processed information will be stored for 14 months and deleted automatically after the expiry of the storage term.

Further information on data collecting practices in connection with Google Analytics is available in the Data Protection Declaration at Google: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en

Pointers to privacy settings at Google are available at https://privacy.google.com/intl/en/take-control.html?categories_activeEl=sign-in

Providing personal data is not prescribed by law or by contract, nor is it required for a contract closing. You are also not obliged to provide personal data. If you do not provide personal data, however, you will not be able to use our website or use it to its full extent.


10) Use of Google Maps

We use Google maps on our website. Google Maps is a service of Google, Inc. ("Google"), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

The inclusion of the Google Maps plug-in is achieved by embedding the service on our website using a so-called “iFrame.” When this iFrame is loaded, Google may collect information (also personal data) and processes them. Therefore, it cannot be excluded that Google also transmits the information to a server in a third country.

Information on Google’s existing Privacy Shield Certification and additional relevant data on data processing by Google when using Google services is available in this Data Protection Declaration under paragraph „8) Information on Google Services“.

We do not collect data when you use Google Maps on our website.

We include Google Maps because we wish to be able to display our address to you as well as to make additional information available for your route to the venue. Including Google Maps also permits us to present venues to you without limiting you to single map segments and allowing you to research distances independently, for example.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data described here is point (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR. Our necessary legitimate interest for this processing lies in the great advantage offered by Google Maps. Including the maps means that we do not need to display the route to the respective venues using route sketches or the like but that every user can plan their route independently. Furthermore, Google has a legitimate interest in collected (personal) data to improve its own services.

Right to object

You have a right to object. You can send us your objection at any time or inform us otherwise, for example, by email at datenschutz@einkaufen-trier.de.

Providing personal data is not prescribed by law or by contract, nor is it required for a contract closing. You are also not obliged to provide personal data. If you do not provide personal data, however, under certain circumstances you may not be able to use our website or use it to its full extent.

More detailed information is available in the Data Protection pointers from Google, which you can retrieve here: https://policies.google.com/privacy

Pointers to Google’s privacy settings are available at https://privacy.google.com/take-control.html?categories_activeEl=sign-in

12) Social Networks & External Links

Along with this website, we also maintain an online presence in different social media which you can reach on our website by clicking on the appropriate button. If you visit such a presence, personal data may be transmitted to the host of the social network. It is possible that, in addition to storing specific data you have entered into this social medium, other data are also processed by the host of the social network.

Moreover, the host of the social network may process the most important data of the computer system from which you visited the network – for example, your IP address, the processor used, and the browser version, including plug-ins.

Provided you are logged into your personal user account of the respective network during your visit to such a website, this network can assign the visit to this account.

13) Data Security

We secure our website and our other systems through technical and organizational measures against loss, destruction, access, alteration, or dissemination of your data by unauthorized persons. Despite routine checks, complete protection against all risks is, however, not possible.


14) Alteration of the Data Protection Declaration

  • Right to data portability (Article 20 of the GDPR)

For questions of this kind, please contact datenschutz@einkaufen-trier.de. Please note that, in the case of such questions, we must ensure that the inquirer is actually the person in question.

Regardless of other administrative or judicial redress, you have the right to enter a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority.
