All matters relating to data protection are very important to us, therefore you will find information on your personal data protection below.
This data protection declaration informs users about the nature, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by dig.id GmbH on this website.
What data is automatically stored by our hoster?
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. The access data includes:
- Name of the website accessed
- Date and time of access
- Amount of data transferred
- Message about successful retrieval
- Browser type and version, as well as the user’s operating system
- Referrer URL (the URL referring to our website, e.g. Google search)
- IP address and the requesting provider.
The provider uses the log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of the operation, security and optimisation of the offer. However, the provider reserves the right to check the log data retrospectively if there is a justified suspicion of unlawful use on the basis of concrete indications.
Handling of personal data
Personal data is information with the help of which a person can be identified, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, email address or telephone number. But also data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites were viewed by someone count as personal data. Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by the provider if this is permitted by law or if the user consents to the collection of the data.
Protection of your personal data
We have taken technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data from loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. Our security measures are continuously revised and optimised in line with technological developments.
When you use a service on our website, your personal data is transmitted to us. To prevent this data from falling into the wrong hands, we encrypt it using the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) procedure. The SSL procedure is currently the most common and safest data transmission procedure on the Internet.
Function of the SSL procedure
The SSL (Secure Socket Layer) procedure protects data that a customer sends to a company’s server via the Internet. SSL provides a threefold protection:
- Your input to be transmitted is encrypted.
- It is ensured that the form is only sent back to the server from which it was opened.
- It is checked whether the data reaches its respective recipient completely and unchanged.
SSL is always used when you see a small (usually green) lock on your screen either at the bottom left in the status bar of your browser or next to the URL line in the upper part of the browser.
What is stored when I contact you?
When contacting us via our contact form, the user’s details are stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event that follow-up questions arise. We do not pass on this data without the user’s consent.
What is the newsletter data used for?
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. No further data will be collected. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties. You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time.
Integration of third-party services and content
It may happen that third-party content, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, are integrated within this online offer. This always requires that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) are aware of the IP address of the user. Without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore necessary for the presentation of this content. We endeavour to only use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. However, we have no influence if the third-party providers store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. Insofar as this is known to us, we inform the users about this.
Use of social plugins from Facebook
Handling of cookies and storage on your computer
In order to make your visit to the website more attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, the website uses so-called cookies on various pages. These are small text files that are stored on your end device (e.g. mobile phone, tablet, PC). Some of the cookies used are deleted at the end of the browser session, i.e. after you close your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your terminal device and make it possible to recognise your browser the next time you visit (so-called persistent cookies such as the storage of your login data on request). You can set your browser so that you are informed when cookies are set and can decide yourself whether to accept them or generally exclude their acceptance. We hereby inform you that the functionality and user comfort may be limited without cookies. You can find more information here: http://www.allaboutcookies.org/ge/cookies-verwalten/
Use of Google Analytics
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
Use of web fonts
External fonts, Google Fonts, are used on these Internet pages. Google Fonts is a service of Google Inc (“Google”). These web fonts are integrated by means of a server call, usually a Google server in the USA. This transmits to the server which of our Internet pages you have visited. The IP address of the browser of the end device of the visitor to these Internet pages is also stored by Google. You can find more detailed information in Google’s data protection information, which you can access here: www.google.com/policies/privacy/.
Use of data for a specific purpose
We adhere to the principle of purpose-related data use and collect, process and store your personal data only for the purposes for which you have provided it to us. Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent, unless this is necessary for the provision of the service or the execution of the contract. Your personal data will also only be passed on to state institutions and authorities entitled to receive information within the scope of the statutory duty to provide information or if we are obliged to provide information by a court decision.
Internal company data protection is also very important to us. Our employees and the service companies commissioned by us have been obliged by us to maintain confidentiality and to comply with the provisions of data protection law.
Right of information and revocation
You can obtain information about the data we have stored about you free of charge at any time without having to give a reason. You can have your data collected by us blocked, corrected or deleted at any time and object to anonymised or pseudonymised data collection and storage for the purpose of optimising our website. You can also revoke your consent to the collection and use of your data at any time without giving reasons. To do so, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be happy to answer any further questions you may have about our information on data protection and the processing of your personal data. Please note that data protection regulations and data protection practices, e.g. at Google, can change constantly. It is therefore advisable and necessary to keep up to date with changes in the legal provisions and the practices of companies, e.g. Google.
