III. General Information about Data Processing

According to Art. 4(1) GDPR, personal data is every piece of information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. A natural person who can be directly or indirectly identified is considered identifiable. Further information on this can be found in Art. 4(1) GDPR.

This Privacy Policy can be accessed, saved and printed out at any time at https://www.ifb-group.com/datenschutz/.

If we claim our legitimate interest or a legitimate interest of a third party (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) as the basis for the lawfulness of the processing of personal data, you have the right to object in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR:

According to 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 purposes of direct marketing or related profiling.

We will not process your personal data for other purposes following an objection either, unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection that outweigh your interests, rights and freedom, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims (see, for example, Art. 21(1) GDPR, so-called "limited right of objection"). In this case, you must explain the reasons for the objection that arise from your particular situation.

For reasons arising from your particular situation, you may also object to the processing of your personal data for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89(1) GDPR, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest (see Art. 21(6) GDPR).

We will also draw your attention to the right of objection separately in the individual sections (e.g. by stating: "You have a right of objection"), provided this right exists. There you will also find further information on exercising your right of objection.
In order to keep the following Privacy Policy clear, we refer to information and data protection notices on external websites (see also the section "Data protection for social media" in this Privacy Policy) by providing links at various points. We make every effort to keep the links listed in this Privacy Policy up to date. However, due to the constant updating of the websites, it cannot be excluded that links may not function correctly. Should you encounter such a link, we would be pleased if you could inform us so that we can update the current link

IV. Provision of the Website and Creation of Log Files

1. Description and Scope of Data Processing

Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer.
The following data is collected:

  1. Information about the browser type and version used
  2. The user's operating system
  3. The user's internet service provider
  4. The user's IP address
  5. Date and time of access
  6. Websites from which the user's system accesses our website
  7. Websites that are called up by the user's system via our website

This data is also stored in the log files of our system. This data will not be stored together with other personal data of the user.

2. Legal Basis for Data Processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in presenting you with a website optimized for your browser and in enabling communication between our server and your terminal device. The latter requires in particular the processing of your IP address.

3. Purpose of 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 allows us to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An analysis 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 it is no longer required for the purpose of its collection. 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 14 days at the latest. In order to restore the website in the event of technical incidents, back-ups of the website are made and stored in the cloud by the provider 1&1. The back-ups of the website also include the log files of the website. Storage beyond this is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or anonymized so that it is no longer possible to assign the calling client.

The recipient of the data is our server host provider, who works for us in the context of order processing.

5. Possibility of Objection and Deletion

Right of Objection
You have a right of objection. You can inform us of your objection at any time (e.g. by e-mail to datenschutz@ifb-group.com).
The provision of personal data is not required by law or contract and is not necessary for the conclusion of a contract. You are also not obliged to provide the personal data. However, failure to provide it would mean that we would not be able to provide you with a newsletter.

By using the CleverReach service, we analyze the success and effectiveness of our newsletter (campaigns). In doing so, we especially analyze whether you open a newsletter or how you otherwise handle the newsletter.
For this purpose, CleverReach sets and stores cookies for statistical surveys and for building interest profiles. Furthermore, web beacons can be sent within the newsletter. These are small graphics that are not visible. When such a graphic is loaded, Cleverreach can determine whether the e-mail has arrived, whether it has been opened and whether links have been clicked on. All this information is stored on Cleverreach's servers, not on this website.

2. Legal Basis for Data Processing

By registering for the newsletter, you expressly consent to the processing of your personal data (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR).

In a first step, you enter the mandatory data (e.g. e-mail address) and agree to the processing of your personal data by checking the box provided for this purpose. The registration form will be provided by CleverReach, so that your data will be transferred directly to CleverReach. In a second step, you will automatically receive an e-mail with a confirmation or activation link, which you must also confirm or activate. In this way, we ensure that the e-mail address entered on our website is yours. If the confirmation or activation link is not used, the corresponding e-mail address will not receive any further e-mails from us.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data, which is necessary for the technical provision of the newsletter to you, as well as for the processing of cookie and measurement data is your consent according to Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR.

The legal basis for the processing of further personal data is our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in being able to prove that you have given your consent. Furthermore, we have a legitimate interest in preventing or being able to prove misuse of our newsletter.

3. Purpose of Data Processing

The purpose of collecting and processing the user's e-mail address is to be able to send the newsletter. The collection and processing of further personal data during the registration process serves the purpose of preventing misuse of our newsletter or the e-mail address used. Furthermore, the processing described above serves the purpose of enabling us to prove that you have given your consent.

The processing of cookie and measurement data pursues the purpose of being able to track the success and range of our newsletter.

4. Duration of Storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose of its collection. Your registration data will therefore only be stored for as long as your subscription to the newsletter is active.

For more information about each specific Google service that we use on this website, please see the Privacy Policy below.

By integrating Google services, Google may collect and process information (including personal data). It cannot be excluded that Google may also transfer the information to a server in a third country.

The transfer to the USA depends on the function in which personal data is transferred. As the controller, we can transfer data to Google in the USA for further use. The transfer can be based on the following so-called standard contractual clauses:

  • Commission Decision of June 15, 2001 on standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to third countries in accordance with Directive 95/46/EC (2001/497/EC)
  • Commission Decision of December 27, 2004 amending the Decision 2001/497/EC as regards the introduction of alternative standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to third countries (2004/915/EC)

If Google acts as our processor in the USA, the transmission to the USA is based on the

  • Commission Decision of February 5, 2010 on standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to processors established in third countries in accordance with Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (2010/87/EU).

We cannot influence which data Google actually collects and processes. However, Google states that in principle the following information (including personal data) can be processed:

"If you are not logged into a Google Account, we store the information we collect with unique identifiers that are linked to the browser, app or device you use. This enables us to ensure, for example, that your language settings are retained in all browser sessions. If you are signed into a Google Account, we also collect information that we store on your Google Account and consider personal data."(https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/index.html)

You can prevent this information from being added directly by signing out of your Google Account or by using the appropriate account settings in your Google Account.

Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files which are stored on your device and which enable an analysis of the use of the websites you visit. Google Analytics may also use so-called web beacons (invisible graphics). These web beacons can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on websites. The information generated by cookies and web beacons about the use of our website (including the IP address of the user) is transferred to a Google server, possibly in the USA or other third countries, and stored there. This information may be passed on by Google to contractual partners of Google.

Information on the standard contractual clause and the transfer to the USA from us to Google and other relevant data for data processing by Google in the context of the use of Google services can be found in this Privacy Policy under the section "VIII. Information about Google Services".

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

Furthermore, we have concluded a contract with Google for the use of Google Analytics for order processing (Art. 28 GDPR). Google processes the data on our behalf in order to analyze your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities for us and to provide us with further services related to website and internet use. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf.

The transfer to Google in the USA is based on the Commission Decision of February 5, 2010 on standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to processors established in third countries under Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council.

By integrating Google Analytics, we pursue the purpose of analyzing the user behavior on our website and to be able to react to it. This enables us to continuously improve our website.

The purpose of processing the data collected during the declaration of consent is to record your consent.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data within the scope of the measurement procedure described here is your explicit consent in accordance with Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR.

The legal basis for the processing of the data processed within the scope of obtaining consent is our legitimate interest according to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in being able to prove that you have given your consent to the measurement procedure (Art. 7(1) GDPR).

The person responsible for the processing has integrated components of YouTube on this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips free of charge and other users to view, rate and comment on them, also free of charge.

2. Legal Basis for the Data Processing

The legal basis for the processing of personal data described here is Art. 6 section 1 lit. f, GDPR. Our necessary legitimate interest is the great benefit that YouTube offers. By integrating external videos, we reduce the load on our servers and can use corresponding resources elsewhere. This can, among other things, increase the stability of our servers. YouTube and Google also have a legitimate interest in the collected (personal) data to improve their own services.

3. Purpose of Data Processing

YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete movies and TV shows, but also music videos, trailers or videos made by users themselves can be accessed via the Internet portal.
The operating company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is an affiliated company of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

By each visit of one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the responsible for the processing of data and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the affected person is automatically caused by the respective YouTube component to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Further information on YouTube can be found at www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/. Within the scope of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google receive knowledge of which specific sub-page of our website is visited by the affected person.

If the affected person is logged into YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognizes which specific sub-page of our website the affected person is visiting when a sub-page containing a YouTube video is accessed. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the affected person.

YouTube and Google always receive information via the YouTube component that the affected person has visited our website if the affected person is simultaneously logged into YouTube at the time of accessing our website; this takes place regardless of whether the affected person clicks on a YouTube video or not.
