2.1. Legal Basis

a) Whenever you visit our website, personal data may be processed. Any such processing of your personal data shall only occur inasfar as this is permitted by law (legal basis). In accordance with article 6, section 1 of the GDPR this is the case, when
  • you have given us your consent or
  • processing is necessary for the performance of the contract we have concluded with your or
  • in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract or

b) The personal data collected from you will be deleted as soon as the purpose for their collection has ceased to exist (see section 14).

2.2. What Is "Personal Data"?

a) The definition of personal data is set out in article 4 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Accordingly, personal data are data that can be attributed to you using proportionate means. Information that cannot be attributed to an identified or identifiable person using proportionate means are anonymous data and as such not personal. An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

b) Additionally, when you visit our website further data will be processed for technical reasons. In the first place, this concerns technical information such as the IP address allocated by your internet access provider to your computer for your internet connection or information about the internet website from where you have accessed our online offers or the type and version of the internet browser you use. Such information will also include your login data, your operating system, download errors, the duration of your visits on certain pages and all telephone numbers used to connect our customer service hotline. In particular cases, these technical information can be personal data. However, we usually use technical information only inasfar this is necessary for technical reasons to operate and protect our website from attacks and fraud as set out in article 6, section 1f of the GDPR.

2.3. What Does “Processing” Mean?

The definition of processing, too, arises from article 4 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This includes all processes and procedures related to the handling of the data. The term “processing” includes the mere collection or recording of data, but also their organisation, arrangement, storage, adaption or alteration. It also compasses other forms of data handling such as the actual use, transfer or disclosure thereof. Finally, even the restriction, deleting or erasing of data is a form of processing.

3. Data Security

The security of your personal data ranks very high on our list of priorities. Therefore, we use technical and operational means to protect your data stored with us. Thus, we ensure that the provisions of the data protection laws are adhered to and that any loss or misuse of data by third parties is effectively prevented. In particular, we oblige those members of our staff who process personal data to maintain data secrecy.

4. SSL Encryption

Our website uses secure SSL encryption for the transfer of personal data or our users’ personal contents. Please makes sure that for the relevant activities SSL encryption is enabled in your computer system. It is easy to see if your system is using encryption: The title in your browser address bar changes from „http://“ to „https://“. SSL encrypted data cannot be read out by third parties. Therefore, do not transfer confidential information unless SSL encryption has been enabled. If in doubt, please contact us.

c) When we effect such a transfer of data to Third Countries, however, we make sure that the transfer is done in accordance with this Privacy Statement. In addition, we make sure that the relevant Third Party receiver of the data guarantees an appropriate level of data protection for you and other persons concerned or that otherwise a legal permission has been provided.

11.4. Shariff für Social Sharing (Teilen von Inhalten auf Facebook, Twitter und Google+)

Mit Shariff können Sie Social Media nutzen, ohne Ihre Privatsphäre unnötig aufs Spiel zu setzen. Das c’t-Projekt Shariff ersetzt die üblichen Share-Buttons der Social Networks und schützt Ihr Surf-Verhalten vor neugierigen Blicken. Dennoch reicht ein einziger Klick auf den Button, um Informationen mit anderen zu teilen. Sie müssen hierfür nichts weiter unternehmen – der Webmaster hat sich bereits um alles gekümmert.

Die üblichen Social-Media-Buttons übertragen die User-Daten bei jedem Seitenaufruf an Facebook & Co. und geben den sozialen Netzwerken genaue Auskunft über Ihr Surfverhalten (User Tracking). Dazu müssen Sie weder eingeloggt noch Mitglied des Netzwerks sein. Dagegen stellt ein Shariff-Button den direkten Kontakt zwischen Social Network und Besucher erst dann her, wenn letzterer aktiv auf den Share-Button klickt.

Damit verhindert Shariff, dass Sie auf jeder besuchten Seite eine digitale Spur hinterlassen, und verbessert den Datenschutz. Dann können Sie nach Gutdünken liken, +1en oder tweeten – mehr Informationen erhält das soziale Netzwerk nicht.

Die Anzeige der “Likes” kommt dank Shariff vom Betreiber der Seite mit den Knöpfen. Weil Shariff vom Webmaster eingebunden wird, müssen Sie als Besucher nichts weiter tun. Weitere Informationen finden sich bei c’t.

Wir haben auf unserer Website die Social-Media-Buttons folgender Unternehmen eingebunden: Facebook, Twitter, Google+
