Privacy Policy

 

General Aspects

We, as the operators of this website, take the protection of your personal data very seriously.

We keep your personal data confidential and handle them according to the legal data protection regulations as well as this privacy policy.

When using this website, various types of personal data are collected from you. In the regulations below, you can find relevant information about the nature, extent and purpose of the collection, use and processing of personal data by the provider.

We will only process your personal data (e.g. name, address, email address, telephone number and the like) in accordance with the provisions of German data protection law. Data are deemed personal where they can be unambiguously assigned to a specific natural person. The legal bases of data protection can be found in the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz – BDSG), the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the German Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz – TMG).

For definitions of the terms used herein and relevant under data protection law, including but not limited to those like “personal data” or “processing”, please refer to Art. 4 GDPR.

Please note that security gaps may exist when transferring data via the Internet; therefore, complete protection against access by third parties may not be guaranteed. Unencrypted e-mails in particular are generally not protected against access by third parties.

 

Who controls the data collection?

The website’s operator bears the responsibility for collection and processing of personal data. Please refer to the end of this data protection policy for its contact information.

 

Why and how are the data collected?

Some of the data is collected to ensure the error-free provision of the website. In accordance with Art. 6(1) point (f) GDPR, this is in our legitimate interest. 

If you provide us with data, including but not limited to doing so by means of a contact form, they are collected by us. Lawfulness is established by Art. 6(1) point (b) GDPR.

Furthermore, we automatically collect data on access to our website using our IT systems due to our legitimate interest according to Art. 6(1) point (f) GDPR and store them as “server log files” on the website’s server. The following data are logged:

  • website visited
  • time of access
  • amount of sent data in bytes
  • source/link from which you entered the website
  • browser used
  • operating system used
  • IP address used

The server log files will be retained for a maximum period of 6 weeks at most and are erased afterwards. The data are stored for security reasons, e.g. to be able to investigate instances of abuse. If any data must be retained for evidence purposes, they are exempt of being erased until the incident has been finally resolved.

 

Your rights – right to access, withdrawal, erasure, etc.

You are entitled to be granted access to your personal data stored by us, to information regarding their origin, recipients and the purpose of the data processing free of charge at any time. Furthermore, you are entitled to rectification, blocking and erasure of such data.

If you have any further questions regarding the topic of data protection in our company, you may contact us using the contact information provided in the imprint and also provided on this page below

 

Your right of withdrawal

You may withdraw your consent to the data processing procedures, including but not limited to processing and storage of your data, at any time. An informal e-mail to contact@popppy.com is sufficient to declare your withdrawal.

Your withdrawal of consent will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

 

Right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority

If you are of the opinion that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes on applicable data protection regulations, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. The supervisory authority competent in this regard is the respective State Data Protection Officer of the federal state in which the company has its registered office.

Please refer to the following link for the contact information of the competent State Data Protection Officer:

Your right to data portability

You or a third party have the right to be provided with the data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or for the fulfilment of a contract, in a commonly used, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another Controller, this will only be performed insofar as it is technically feasible.

Google Analytics

Based on our legitimate interest in optimisation and analysis of our website in accordance with Art. 6(1) point (f) GDPR, this website uses the “Google Analytics” service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). The service (Google Analytics) uses “cookies”, i.e. text files that the website stores on your terminal device. Information collected through cookies is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google LLC is compliant with the European data protection law and is certified within the scope of the Privacy Shield Framework: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

IP anonymisation is applicable for this website. Within the Member States of the European Union and the European Economic Area and the other parties to the framework agreement, the IP address of the users is abbreviated. In exceptional cases only, the IP address is first transmitted to the USA to a Google server without being abbreviated and is then abbreviated there. This abbreviation eliminates the personal reference of your IP address. The user’s IP address transmitted by the browser is not combined with other data stored by Google.

Within the framework of the agreement on order-related data processing that we, as the operators of the website, have entered into with Google Inc., Google Inc. will produce an analysis of website utilisation and website activity based on the information collected and provide appropriate services in connection with the use of the internet.

The data collected by Google on our behalf enable us to analyse the use of our online presence by individual users, e.g. to prepare reports about activity on our website, to improve our online presence.

You have the option of preventing cookies from being saved on your device by making appropriate settings in your browser. It is not ensured that you are given full and unlimited access to all functions of this website if your browser does not allow cookies.

Moreover, you can use a browser plug-in which prevents the information collected through cookies (including IP address) from being sent to and used by Google Inc. You can access the appropriate plug-in through the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB

Alternatively, you prevent collection of your personal data by Google Analytics within this website by clicking on this link: “Click here to lock out Google”. By clicking the link above, you download an “opt-out cookie”. Consequently, your browser needs to generally allow saving of cookies. If you delete your cookies on a regular basis, you need to re-open the link every time you visit this website.

Google Maps

Based on our legitimate interest to optimise functionality of our website as defined in Art. 6(1) point (f) GDPR, this website uses Google Maps to indicate our location and provide directions. This service is provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to only as “Google”.

By holding a certificate according to the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework (“EU-US Privacy Shield”)

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

Google warrants that the EU data protection requirements are also observed while processing data in the USA.

If you access the Google Maps component incorporated in our online presence, Google uses your web browser to store a cookie on your terminal device. Your user settings and data are processed to display our location and provide directions. We cannot rule out that Google uses servers in the USA for such purpose.

Using the connection to Google established by this, Google is able to determine which website was used to send your query and the IP address to which the directions will be sent.

If you do not agree to such data processing, you have the option to prevent installation of the cookies by applying the appropriate settings in your web browser. For more information on this, please refer to the “Cookies” section above.

Furthermore, the use of Google Maps and the information obtained via Google Maps is governed by the Google Terms of Service https://policies.google.com/terms?gl=EN&hl=en-GB.
