General information about data processing

Description and scope of personal data processing

Our website can be visited without registration. Data such as the pages visited or the name of the retrieved file, date and time are stored on the server for statistical purposes, without directly relating this data to you.  Insofar as there is an option to enter personal data on our website (for instance, in our contact form), this data is entered on a voluntary basis. The required mandatory information is clearly marked and required for the respective service and its personalization.

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing their personal data, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data necessary for the performance of a contract on which the data subject is a party, Art. 6, Para. 1 lit. b of the GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out precontractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfill a legal obligation that applies to our company, Art. 6, Para. 1 lit. c of the GDPR serves as the legal basis.

Data deletion and storage duration

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for storage expires. It may be stored for longer than this period if provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the data controller is subject. Blocking or deletion of the data also takes place when a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned regulations expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract.

Website provision and log file creation

Description and scope of data processing

Every 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. Name of retrieved file
  2. Date and time of retrieval
  3. Transferred data amount, message about successful retrieval
  4. Web browser and requested domain

The IP addresses of requesting computers are also logged. Further personal data is only collected if the website user and/or customer voluntarily provides it, such as through an inquiry or registration or to conclude a contract or through their browser settings. The data is also stored in our system’s log files. This data is not stored together with other personal data pertaining to the user.

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. To do this, the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session. Storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. The data is also used to optimize the website and ensure the security of our IT systems. The data is not evaluated for marketing purposes in this context. The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR.

Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose of its collection. In the case of data collection for the provision of the website, this happens when the respective session has ended or, in the case of data storage in log files, after a maximum of seven days. Longer storage periods are possible. In this case, the user’s IP addresses will be deleted or encrypted to prevent them from being assigned to the respective user.

Right of objection and deletion

The collection of data for website provision and the storage of data in log files is necessary for website operation. The user does not have any right of opposition.

Use of Cookies

Contact

Description and scope of data processing

A contact form is available on our website, which can be used for electronic contact. If the user uses this facility, the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us and saved. This data is:

  1. Title
  2. Name, surname
  3. Telephone and fax numbers
  4. E-mail address and website
  5. Company and company address

When the message is sent, the following data is also stored:

  1. The IP address of the user
  2. Date and time of registration

In order to process the data, you consent is obtained as part of the sending process and reference is made to this privacy policy. Alternatively, contact can also be made via e-mail or telephone. In this case, the user’s personal data provided via e-mail or telephone will be stored. There is no disclosure of data to third parties in this context. The data will be used solely to process the conversation and any business contacts that may result in order to fulfill a contract or perform pre-contractual measures.

Purpose of data processing

The processing of the personal data from the input mask is used only to process the contact. In the case of contact via e-mail, this also constitutes the required legitimate interest in the data processing. Other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

The legal basis for the processing of data with the consent of the user is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a of the GDPR. The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR. If the e-mail contact aims to conclude a contract, the additional legal basis for processing Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b of the GDPR is still valid.

Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose of its collection. If other business transactions arise from the contact, (contract, pre-contractual measures), the data required for the execution of the contract will continue to be stored. The duration of storage then results from the contractual or legal requirements (e.g. legal retention period). Such contract data is therefore kept by us for ten years.

Right of objection and deletion

The user has the right to revoke their consent to the processing of their personal data at any time. Revocation should be e-mailed in writing to the above mentioned E-Mail adresses. If the user contacts us by e-mail, they may object to the storage of their personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued. The same applies to contact made by telephone. In this case, all personal data stored in relation to the contact will be deleted.

Purpose of data processing

The processing of personal data from the input mask serves us solely for the processing and invoicing of the registration for participation in the event. In the case of contact by e-mail, this also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in processing the data. The other personal data processed during the submission process serve to prevent misuse of the registration and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO if the user has given his consent. The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted while sending an e-mail is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. If the e-mail contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO still valid. 

Duration of storage

If the registration results in further business processes (contract, pre-contractual measures), the data required for the execution of the contract will continue to be stored. The duration of storage then results from the contractual or legal requirements (e.g., legal retention period). Such contractual data is therefore regularly stored by us for ten years. The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. 

Possibility of objection and removal

The user has the possibility to revoke his consent to the processing of personal data at any time. The revocation must be made in writing by e-mail to the address: service@cleancontrolling.de. If the user contacts us by e-mail, he can object to the storage of his personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued. The same applies to contact by telephone. All personal data stored during registration will be deleted in this case.

Use of Google AdWords and conversion measurement

Description, scope and purpose of the data processing

Our website uses Google AdWords, a service provided by Google LLC (“Google”). This application is an online advertising program designed to place ads on the Google advertising network (e.g. in search results, videos, on websites, etc.) in order to display them to users who are believed to have an interest in them. This enables ads to be more targeted and only show users ads that potentially match their interests.

For this purpose, an individual cookie is generated on the device of the user, which records which websites the user visited, what content they are interested in and what offers they clicked, in addition to technical information about the browser and operating system, referring web pages, visiting time and other information on the use of the online offer.

Furthermore, we receive an individual "conversion cookie". The information obtained through the cookie is used by Google to generate conversion statistics for us. However, we only receive information on the anonymous total number of users who clicked on our ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not receive information that personally identifies users.
