Basic information

This privacy policy is intended to inform the users of this website about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the website operator AKIOMA Software GmbH. The website operator takes your data protection very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the legal regulations. As new technologies and the constant further development of this website may result in changes to this data protection declaration, we recommend that you read the data protection declaration again at regular intervals. Definitions of the terms used (e.g. "personal data" or "processing") can be found in Art. 4 DSGVO.

Accessed Data

We, the website operator or page provider, collect data about access to the website on the basis of our legitimate interest (see Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO) and store these data as „server log files“ on the server of the website. The following data is logged in this way:

  • Visited Website
  • Time at the moment of access
  • Amount of sent data in bytes
  • Source/reference from which you reached the page
  • Used Browser
  • Used Operating System
  • Your IP Address

The server log files are stored for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. The data is stored for security reasons, e.g. to be able to clarify cases of abuse. If data has to be kept for reasons of evidence, it is excluded from deletion until the incident is finally clarified.

Analytics & Cookies

This website uses cookies for pseudonymous range measurement, which are transferred to the user's browser either from our server or the server of a third party. Cookies are small files which are stored on your end device and accessed by your browser. The use of cookies increases the user-friendliness and security of this website.

With the use of cookies, we collect information about how visitors use our website and our products and services, which pages visitors visit most often and whether they receive error messages. You are not identifiable as an individual based on the information collected by these cookies. All information collected by these cookies is consolidated and made anonymous. They are used solely to optimise the functionality of the website, products and services.

Accepting cookies is not a prerequisite for visiting our websites. Common browsers offer the setting option not to accept cookies. Note: We cannot guarantee that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if you make the appropriate settings.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". These store a so-called session ID, which can be used to assign various requests from your browser to the shared session. This enables us to recognise your computer when you return to our website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.

Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser.

Collecting and processing of personal data

The website operator collects, uses and passes on your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of data. Personal data is defined as all information which serves to determine your person and which can be traced back to you - such as your name, e-mail address and telephone number. You can also visit this website without providing any personal information. However, to improve our online service, we store (without personal reference) your access data to this website. This access data includes, for example, the file you requested or the name of your Internet provider. By making the data anonymous, it is not possible to identify you as a person.

As a matter of principle, we collect and use users' personal data only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services. The collection and use of users' personal data is regularly only carried out with the users' consent. An exception is made in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.
In the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 letter b FADP serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations which are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.
In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d DSGVO serves as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1 letter f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing. Legitimate interests of our company are in particular the provision of a functioning website, the presentation and communication of our contents and services as well as the economic interests to achieve our company's purpose.

The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU ordinances, laws or other regulations to which the person responsible is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted when a storage period prescribed by the above-mentioned standards expires, unless there is a need to continue storing the data for the purpose of concluding or fulfilling a contract.

If you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form, the data you provide (your e-mail address, your name and your telephone number, if applicable) will be stored by us in order to answer your questions and/or to send you an offer, if applicable. We delete the data arising in this connection after storage is no longer necessary or restrict processing if there are legal storage obligations.

The processing of personal data from your details within an e-mail serves us to process your contact request. The legal basis for this purpose may therefore be your consent, Art. 6 Para. 1 letter a) DS-GVO, the fulfilment of a contract, the implementation of pre-contractual measures (e.g. soliciting offers), Art. 6 Para. 1 letter b) DS-GVO. In addition, depending on the reason for your contact request, a legitimate interest for us in processing may exist, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DS-GVO.

Handling the contact data

If you contact us as a website operator through the contact options offered, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and answer your inquiry. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.

Google Analytics

This website uses on the basis of our legitimate interests to optimise and analyse our online offer in the sense of article 6 paragraph 1 lit. f. DSGVO the service "Google Analytics", which is provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). The service (Google Analytics) uses "cookies" - text files which are stored on your end device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google LLC complies with European data protection law and is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement.

IP anonymisation is used on this website. The IP address of the users is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area and in the other contracting states of the agreement. Only in individual cases is the IP address initially transferred in full to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Through this shortening, the personal reference of your IP address is omitted. 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 commissioned data, which we have concluded as website operator with Google Inc., the latter uses the information collected to create an evaluation of website use and website activity and provides services associated with Internet use.

The data collected by Google on our behalf is used to evaluate the use of our online offer by individual users, e.g. to create reports on the activity on the website in order to improve our online offer.

You have the option of preventing the storage of cookies on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. It cannot be guaranteed that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if your browser does not allow cookies.

Furthermore, you can use a browser plugins to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to Google Inc. and used by Google Inc. The following link will take you to the corresponding plugin: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

Here you will find further information on the use of data by Google Inc:

Use of Social Media

Embedding of YouTube Videos

a) We have integrated YouTube videos into our online offering, which are stored at https://www.youtube.com and can be played directly from our website. These are all integrated in "extended privacy mode", which means that no data about you as a user is transferred to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Only when you play the videos will the data mentioned in paragraph b) be transferred. We have no influence on this data transfer.

b) When you visit the site, YouTube receives information that you have visited the appropriate subpage of our site. In addition, the data mentioned in point V. of this declaration is transmitted. This occurs regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in at Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not want the assignment with your profile on YouTube, you have to log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as user profiles and uses them for the purpose of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) for the purpose of providing need-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.

c) For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by YouTube, please see the Privacy Policy. There you will also find further information about your rights and setting options to protect your privacy:  https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en&gl=en. Google also processes your personal data in the USA and has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield,  https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

a) On this website we use the services of Google Maps. This allows us to display interactive maps directly on the website and enables you to use the map function conveniently.

b) By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the data mentioned in point V. of this declaration will be transmitted. This happens regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in at Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not want the assignment with your profile at Google, you have to log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide need-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website.

Online presence on social media

We maintain online presences within social networks and platforms in order to be able to communicate with the customers, interested parties and users active there and to inform them about our services. When accessing the respective networks and platforms, the terms and conditions and data processing guidelines of their respective operators apply.

Unless otherwise stated in our data protection notice, we process the data of users if they communicate with us within social networks and platforms, e.g. write articles on our online presences or send us messages.

Newsletter

Personal data is collected when you register for our e-mail newsletter. This data is used by us for our own advertising purposes in the form of our e-mail newsletter, provided you have given your express consent. We use the so-called double-opt-in procedure to register for our newsletter. This means that after your registration, we will send you an e-mail to the e-mail address provided, in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter.

For this purpose, we store your IP address and the time of registration and confirmation. The purpose of this procedure is to be able to prove your registration and, if necessary, to clarify a possible misuse of your personal data.

For the transmission of the newsletter, we require only your e-mail address. Other data, especially your name, will be used to address you personally. After your confirmation we will save your e-mail address and name for the purpose of sending the newsletter. We use these data exclusively for sending the requested information.
The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO.

You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time via the link provided for this purpose in the newsletter or by sending us a corresponding message, without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. After you have cancelled your subscription, your e-mail address will be deleted from our newsletter distribution list immediately.

User Rights

As a user, you have the right to receive, upon request, free information about what personal data has been stored about you. You also have the right to have incorrect data corrected and to have your personal data processed or deleted. If applicable, you can also exercise your right to data portability. If you suspect that your data has been processed unlawfully, you can issue a complaint to the relevant supervisory authority.

Data Deletion

Unless your request conflicts with a legal obligation to retain data (e.g. data retention), you have the right to have your data deleted. Data stored by us will be deleted if they are no longer required for their intended purpose and if there are no legal retention periods. If deletion cannot be carried out because the data is required for permissible legal purposes, data processing will be restricted. In this case the data will be blocked and not processed for other purposes.

The right to object

Users of this website may exercise their right to object and object to the processing of their personal data at any time. If you wish to correct, block, delete or obtain information about your personal data stored, or if you have questions regarding the collection, processing or use of your personal data, or if you wish to revoke consents granted, please contact the following e-mail address: info@akioma.de
