Data & Privacy

Table of contents

Version: 31.03.2019


1)  Preamble

Welcome to our website! We place the utmost importance on protecting your data and keeping your privacy. We would like to describe in the following what data we process when, and the purpose and legal basis of the processing. The aim is to explain how we work on the services we offer and how we guarantee the protection of your personal data whilst doing so.

Personal data mean all information covered by art. 4 section 1 GDPR which relate to an identified or identifiable natural person. A natural person is regarded as identifiable if they can be identified either directly or indirectly. Further information is available in art. 4 section 1 GDPR.

This privacy policy may be called up, stored and printed out at any time at http://www.walterscheid.com/datenschutz abgerufen, abgespeichert und ausgedruckt werden.

 

If we invoke our legitimate interest or the legitimate interest of a third party as the legal basis for processing personal data (art. 6 para. 1 letter f) GDPR), you are entitled to object under art. 21 GDPR:

Under art. 21 GDPR you have the right

to object to the processing of personal data at any time. We will then no longer process the personal data for the purpose of direct marketing or profiling associated with this.

After an objection, we will then not process your personal data for other purposes, unless we can prove compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or if the processing is being used to pursue, exercise or defend legal claims (cf. art. 21 para. 1 GDPR, the "restricted right to object"). In this case, you have to set out the reasons for the objection that relate to your particular situation.

You may also object to the processing of your personal data undertaken for the purposes of scientific or historic research or for statistical purposes for reasons arising from your particular situation under art. 89 para. 1 GDPR unless processing is necessary to fulfil a task which is in the public interest (cf. art. 21 para. 6 GDPR).

 

We will again draw your attention to your right to object separately in individual sections (e.g. by stating: "You have the right to object"), if this right exists. You will also find further information on exercising your right to object there. To ensure that the following privacy policy is easy to understand, we will refer at various points to links to information and data protection notices available on external websites (cf. also section "Social networks & External links" in this privacy policy). We take great care to ensure that we keep the links included in this privacy policy up-to-date. Due to the constant updating of the websites, we therefore cannot exclude the possibility that the links do not work correctly. Should you notice such a link, we would be grateful if you inform us, so that we can update the current link.

6) Information on Google services

On our website we use various services provided by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

You can find out more information on specific individual Google services which we use on this website in the privacy policy below.

Under certain circumstances, Google may collect and process information (including personal data) due to the inclusion of Google services. We cannot exclude the possibility that Google may also transmit this information to a server in a third country.

Google’s Privacy Shield certificate (see https://www.privacyshield.gov/list under the search term “Google”) states that Google has given an undertaking to comply with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework in respect of the collection, use and storage of personal data from EU member states/Switzerland. Google, including Google LLC and its 100% subsidiaries in the USA, has declared through certification that it abides by the principles of the Privacy Shield. You can find further information on this at https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/frameworks/.

We ourselves cannot influence which data Google actually collects and processes. However, Google states that the information processed (including personal data) may include the following:

  • Protocol data (particularly the IP address)
  • Location related information
  • Unique application numbers
  • Cookies and similar technologies

You can find information on the types of cookies used by Google at https://policies.google.com/technologies/types.

If you are signed into your Google account, Google may add the processed information to your account, depending on your account settings, and treat it as personal data. Amongst other details, Google states as follows:

"If you are not signed into a Google account, we store the data we have collected with unique identifiers linked to the browser, app or device which you are using. This enables us to guarantee that, for example, your language settings are retained in all browser sessions.

7) Google Analytics

On our website we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files which are stored on your device and which make it possible to analyse use of the websites you visit. Google Analytics may also use so-called web beacons (invisible graphics). These web beacons enable information such as visitor traffic on websites to be analysed. The information produced by cookies and web beacons on the use of our website (including the user’s IP address) is transmitted to a Google server, possibly in the USA or other third countries, and stored there. This information may be passed on by Google to its contractual partners.

Information on Google’s existing Privacy Shield certification and other relevant data on Google’s data processing within the framework of the use of Google services can be found in this privacy policy under section "6) Information on Google Services“.

The following types of data are processed by Google:

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

In addition, you can find more detailed information about the information processed at https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/#infocollect under "Data we receive as a result of your use of our services" and at https://privacy.google.com/businesses/adsservices/

We only use Google Analytics with IP-anonymisation (anonymise IP) activated. This means that your IP address will be shortened by Google within EU member states or in other countries which are party to agreements governing the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

We have furthermore entered into an agreement for contract processing with Google for the use of Google Analytics (art. 28 GDPR). Google processes the data on our behalf to analyse your use of the website, compile reports for us on website activities and to provide us with further services associated with use of the website and the internet. Google may under certain circumstances transmit this information to a third party if required by law to do so, or if a third party is processing this data on Google’s behalf.

By using Google Analytics we are pursuing the aim of analysing user behaviour on our website so that we can react to it. This enables us to continuously improve our offer.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data described here is art. 6 para 1 letter f) GDPR. The required legitimate interest in doing so lies in the great benefit which the functions described above have for our offer. Statistical analysis of user behaviour makes it possible for us in particular to react to and optimise our offer to suit users’ needs.

ImWithin the framework of contract processing, Google is entitled to engage sub-contractors. A list of these sub-contractors can be found at https://privacy.google.com/businesses/subprocessors/[A15]

Right to object

You have the right to object. For this purpose you can prevent Google processing your data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link:

https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en 

You can also prevent data being collected by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is applied which prevents data being collected in future when visiting this website: Deactivate Google Analytics. Deactivate Google Analytics

You can further prevent the collection of data using web beacons by downloading and installing the add-on available under the following link for the respective browser:

The provision of personal data is neither required by law nor by contract and is also not necessary for the conclusion of a contract. Neither are you obliged to provide the personal data. The consequence of not providing the personal data could, however, result in you not being able to use, or not fully use, our website.


8) Use of Google Maps

We use Google Maps on our website. Google Maps is a service provided by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

The Google Maps plug-in is included by embedding the service on our website using what are known as “iFrames”. When loading these iFrames, under certain circumstances Google may collect and process information (including personal data). We cannot exclude the possibility that Google may also transmit this information to a server in a third country.

Information on Google’s existing Privacy Shield certification and other relevant data on Google’s data processing within the framework of the use of Google services can be found in this privacy policy under section "6) Information on Google services".

We do not ourselves collect any data when you use Google Maps through our website.

By including Google Maps we are pursuing the aim of showing you our address and making further information available to you for your journey. By including Google Maps we are also able to present locations to you so that you are not restricted to individual map pages and can look up distances etc. for yourself.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data described here is art. 6 para 1 letter f) GDPR. The required legitimate interest in doing so lies in the great benefit which Google Maps offers. Including Google Maps means that we do not need, for instance, to provide diagrams of access routes to the respective locations, therefore making it possible for every user to plan their journey independently. Google also has a legitimate interest in the collected (personal) data to improve its own services.

Right to object

You have the right to object. You can send or inform us of your objection at any time (e.g. by email to gdpr@walterscheid.com). 

The provision of personal data is neither required by law nor by contract and is also not necessary for the conclusion of a contract. Neither are you obliged to provide the personal data. The consequence of not providing the personal data could, however, result in you not being able to use, or not fully use, our website.

You can find out further information about Google’s data protection notices by downloading them here: www.google.com/policies/privacy/

9) Google Tag Manager

We use Google Tag Manager on our website. Google Tag Manager is a service provided by Google LLC ("Google"), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Tag Manager enables us to organise and include various codes and services simply on our website. To do this, Google Tag Manager implements the tags or “releases” the integrated tags. When releasing a tag, under certain circumstances, Google may collect and process information (including personal data). We cannot exclude the possibility that Google may also transmit this information to a server in a third country.

Information on Google’s existing Privacy Shield certification and other relevant data on Google’s data processing within the framework of the use of Google services can be found in this privacy policy under section "6) Information on Google Services".

The following personal data in particular is processed by Google Tag Manager:

  • Online identifiers (including cookie identifiers)
  • IP address

In addition, you can find more detailed information on Google Tag Manager on the websites https://www.google.de/tagmanager/use-policy.html and https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/index.html under "Data we receive as a result of your use of our services".

We have furthermore entered into an agreement for contract processing with Google for the use of Google Tag Manager (art. 28 GDPR). Google processes the data on our behalf in order to release the stored tags and display the services on our website. Google may under certain circumstances transmit this information to a third party if required by law to do so, or if a third party is processing this data on Google’s behalf.

If you have deactivated individual tracking services (e.g. by implementing an opt-out cookie), this deactivation remains in place for all relevant tracking tags integrated by Google Tag Manager.

By including Google Tag Manager we are pursuing the aim of being able to provide a simplified and understandable integration of various services. The inclusion of Google Tag Manager also optimises the loading time of the various services.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data described here is art. 6 para 1 letter f) GDPR. Our required legitimate interest in this lies in the great benefit which the inclusion of various services through Google Tag Manager provides. By including Google Tag Manager we reduce our maintenance costs, the loading time for the website and the workload on the server and traffic. Google also has a legitimate interest in the collected (personal) data to improve its own services.

Right to object

You have the right to object.

You have the option of prohibiting the sending of all tags from Google Tag Manager. To do so, you only need to click on Google Tag Manager deaktivieren to store the Google Tag Manager deactivation cookie in your browser. However, we would like to point out that deactivation may result in you not being able to use our website or not being able to use it to its full extent.

The information processed is only stored as long as necessary for the intended purpose or for the period required by law.

The provision of personal data is neither required by law nor by contract and is also not necessary for the conclusion of a contract. Neither are you obliged to provide the personal data. The consequence of not providing the personal data could, however, result in you not being able to use, or not fully use, our website.


10) Use of jQuery

We use jQuery on our website. JQuery is a free Javascript library/framework under the MIT licence, which is offered by the JS Foundation, Inc., Attn: Privacy Office, 1 Letterman Drive, San Francisco, CA 94129, legal@JS.Foundation.

We integrate jQuery via the JS Foundation server. The library is then made available by the JS Foundation, and uploaded to our website by a corresponding command so that our website can use the library.

Integration of the libraries takes place via an interface (“API”) to jQuery. Under certain circumstances, the JS Foundation may collect and process information (including personal data) due to the inclusion of the libraries.

The JS Foundation states that the following information may be processed (including personal data):

  • Website visits/retrievals
  • Duration of website visits/retrievals
  • Landing and exit pages
  • Location
  • IP address
  • Browser technology

The jQuery Foundation also states that this data may be forwarded to other parties.

Detailed information is available at: https://js.foundation/about/governance/privacy-policy

The JS Foundation may install cookies on your device for the use of jQuery.

Find out more about how to delete cookies in the most common browsers and how to change cookie settings etc. here:

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

By including jQuery we are pursuing the aim of integrating the libraries necessary for optimum functioning of the website so that these may be used.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data described here is art. 6 para 1 letter f) GDPR. The required legitimate interest in doing so lies in the great benefit which the inclusion of jQuery offers. By including the library via the JS Foundation, we reduce our maintenance costs and loading time for the website. jQuery also has a legitimate interest in the collected (personal) data to improve its own services.

Right to object

You have the right to object. You can send or inform us of your objection at any time (e.g. by email to gdpr@walterscheid.com). 


11) Use of YouTube

We use videos from YouTube on our website. YouTube is a service of YouTube LLC (‘YouTube’), 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA and is provided by this company. YouTube LLC is a subsidiary of Google LLC (‘Google’), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

YouTube is included by embedding the service on our website using a so called “iFrames”. When loading this iFrames, under certain circumstances, YouTube/Google may collect and process information (including personal data). We cannot exclude the possibility that YouTube or Google may also transmit this information to a server in a third country.

Information on Google’s existing Privacy Shield certification and other relevant data on Google’s data processing within the framework of the use of Google services can be found in this privacy policy under section "6) Information on Google services".

We use YouTube in what is known as “expanded data protection mode”. According to information provided by Google, a video can be played in this mode without user behaviour being collected by cookies. We do not collect any data ourselves when you watch a YouTube video with us.

By including YouTube we are pursuing the aim of being able to present you with various videos on our website so that you can view these directly on our website.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data described here is art. 6 para 1 letter f) GDPR. The required legitimate interest in doing so lies in the great benefit which YouTube offers. By including external videos we reduce the load on our servers and can use the corresponding resources in other ways. This can, for instance, improve the stability of our servers. YouTube/Google also has a legitimate interest in the collected (personal) data to improve its own services.

Right to object

You have the right to object. You can send or inform us of your objection at any time (e.g. by email to gdpr@walterscheid.com).

You can also change your cookie settings (e.g. delete cookies, block cookies, etc.). Further information is available under 5) Cookies.

The provision of personal data is neither required by law nor by contract and is also not necessary for the conclusion of a contract. Neither are you obliged to provide the personal data. The consequence of not providing the personal data could, however, result in you not being able to use content on our website.


12) Use of MyFonts

a) MyFonts Fonts

We use external fonts from MyFonts on our website. “MyFonts” is a service provided by MyFonts Inc., 500 Unicorn Park Drive, Woburn, MA 01801, USA. MyFonts Inc. is owned by the company Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc., 600 Unicorn Park Drive, Woburn, Massachusetts 01801, USA.

Integration of the fonts takes place via an interface (“API”). Under certain circumstances, “MyFonts” may collect and process information (including personal data) due to the inclusion of the fonts. We cannot exclude the possibility that “MyFonts” may also transmit this information to a server in a third country.

We do not ourselves collect any data within the context of making fonts available.

By inclusion of fonts we are pursuing the aim of being able to display uniform font types on your device.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data described here is art. 6 para 1 letter f) GDPR. The required legitimate interest in doing so lies in the great benefit which the inclusion of font types offers. The possibility of uniform presentation means that we can keep design costs lower than if we had to react to the font standards of various operating systems/browsers with our own graphically adapted websites. MyFonts also has a legitimate interest in the collected (personal) data to improve its own services.

Right to object

You have the right to object. You can send or inform us of your objection at any time (e.g. by email to gdpr@walterscheid.com). 

The provision of personal data is neither required by law nor by contract and is also not necessary for the conclusion of a contract. Neither are you obliged to provide the personal data. The consequence of not providing the personal data could, however, result in you not being able to use, or not fully use, our website and the display on the website changing.
