Data protection is a matter of very high importance for FOLLOW-ME! Technology GmbH. Use of our website is generally possible without the need to provide personal data. Personal data is only processed to the extent necessary for the ability to provide a functioning website and the content and services offered through it. The processing of personal data of our users normally only takes place with the user’s prior consent. An exception to this exists in cases where it is not possible to obtain consent in advance due to reasons of fact and where processing of the data is permitted under the provisions of law.
Our content and services are not intended for persons under the age of 16 and are not aimed at them. We therefore do not knowingly collect data of or relating to persons under the age of 16.
We are guided by the principles of data avoidance and data minimisation. The personal data of a data subject are deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer exists. Storage may also take place in cases where it is permitted by European or national legislatures in the form of EU regulations, laws or other legal provisions by which the data controller is bound. Data are also blocked or deleted in cases where a storage period specified under any of the aforesaid laws or regulations expires, except where continued storage of the data is necessary for the entry into or performance of a contract.
In the case of use of our services, you may be requested to provide personal information (i.e. personal data). Provision of such data is voluntary. Your personal data will in this case only be stored and processed on the strength of your consent and in conformity with the data protection regulations in the version in force at the time. You may withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future. To do so, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The “data controller” within the meaning of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (abbreviated in the following as the “GDPR”), other data protection laws in force in the Member States of the European Union and other regulations with data protection character is FOLLOW-ME! Technology GmbH, Regerstrasse 27, 81541 Munich, telephone: +49 89 452 170 60, email: email@example.com.
Provision of the website and generation of log files
Each time our website is visited, our system automatically records data and information from the computer system of the computer from which the visit was initiated. In this process, information is collected (1) on the type and version of browser used, (2) the user’s operating system, (3) the user’s IP address, (4) the data and time of access, (5) websites from which the user’s system came to our website, and (6) websites which are accessed by the user’s system through our website. The data are likewise stored in the log files of our system. Not included in this storage are the user’s IP address or other data which would allow the data to be attributed to a specific user. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.
The legal basis for temporary storage is Article 6(1) (f) GDPR.
Temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary in order to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. To this end, the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session. Additionally, the log files are stored for the purpose of statistical evaluation for improving the content of our website. These purposes also constitute a legitimate interest on our part in processing the data pursuant to under Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.
The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer needed for achieving the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of collection of the data for provision of the website, this is the case when the session concerned is terminated.
Collection of the data for provision of the website and storage of the data in log files is essential for operation of the website. The user therefore has no possibility to file an objection.
Contract performance / Inquiries
On the FOLLOW-ME! Technology GmbH website, personal data are collected and used for the purpose of contract performance and handling of inquiries. The data concerned comprises contact information such as name, firm’s name and address, as well as relevant product information, in particular the licence number and telephone number of the buyer. The data provided by you are transmitted by email to our FOLLOW-ME! employees.
The data collected in this context are processed by us solely for the purpose of performance of the contract and the implementation of any pre-contractual measures. Without these data, we are not able to enter into a contract with you.
We do not normally transmit data to any third parties with the exception of the transport/shipping enterprise commissioned by us to deliver the goods and our tax accountant for the purpose of fulfilment of our obligations under tax law. If your declaration of consent relating to the aforementioned purposes also includes the transmission of your data to affiliated enterprises of FOLLOW-ME! Technology GmbH as defined in §§ 15 ff. AktG [German Stock Corporation Act] or to other third parties named in the declaration of consent, your data may be passed on to them.
Processing and use of your data for other purposes, in particular for consultancy, advertising or market research purposes, will only take place with your express consent.
The legal basis for the processing of such personal data is Article 6(1)(b) GDPR. Processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with you or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures which are triggered through your inquiry. An additional legal basis is Article 6(1)(c) GDPR insofar as we are required on statutory grounds to preserve and process the data concerned. In the event that you have issued your consent, processing will take place on the strength of Article 6(1)(a) GDPR.
The collected data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose for which they were collected. In the event of conclusion of a contract, all data deriving from the contractual relationship will be stored until expiry of the preservation period specified under commercial and tax law. The following data, namely name, address, goods purchased and purchase date will be additionally stored until expiry of the product liability period (10 years from the product being placed on the market). If the ordering process is aborted, the data stored by us will be deleted immediately.
If data processing is performed on the basis of your consent, you may object to further processing at any time.
On visiting our website, users are informed by an information banner that cookies are used for the purpose of analysis, and a reference is provided to this data protection policy statement. Attention is drawn at the same time to the possibility of preventing the storage of cookies and how this can be done the relevant browser settings.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.
You have the possibility to subscribe for our free Newsletter through our website. To this end, we need your email address and your consent to receive the Newsletter. To enable us to supply you with targeted information, we also collect and process information that is provided voluntarily, such as your first name, surname (last name), email, address and telephone number. Traffic data (e.g. the opening behaviour of recipients of the Newsletter) are also collected and processed. Additionally at the time of registration, (1) the date of consent and (2) the IP address of the computer used are collected and stored. As soon as you have registered for the Newsletter, we will send you an email confirmation, with a link to confirm the registration. The Newsletter will only be sent to you once we have received this confirmation.
Every Newsletter contains a so-called tracking pixel, which is retrieved by the server on opening the Newsletter. This allows a statistical evaluation of the recipient’s opening behaviour to be conducted, i.e. to determine if and when an email has been opened by the recipient and what links offered in the email have been contacted by the recipient.
In connection with the data processing for the dispatch of Newsletters, the data is transmitted to the US firm of Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA, which operates “MailChimp”, a newsletter mailing platform. MailChimp takes care of distribution of the Newsletter to the instructions of the data controller. To this end, the data collected are also sent to a MailChimp server in the USA. The data are thereby used solely in connection with sending of the Newsletter and evaluation of it. MailChimp uses this data for the purpose of optimising or improving its own services, e.g. for technical improvement of sending and presentation of the Newsletter, or for economic purposes, e.g. establishing which countries the recipients of the Newsletter are from. However, MailChimp does not use the subscribers’ data in order to write to them itself, nor does it pass this data on to third parties.
Further information on data protection at MailChimp can be found at https://MailChimp.com/legal/privacy. MailChimp has adopted the rules of the “EU-U.S. Privacy Shield” (see https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000TO6hAAG). Further information on this is available at https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
The legal basis for the processing of data after registration for the Newsletter by the user is, if consent has been given by the user, Article 6(1)(a) GDPR and § 7 Para. 2 No. 3 and Para. 3 UWG [German Prohibition of Unfair Competition Act]. As part of the registration procedure for the Newsletter, consent to processing of the data is obtained from the user, with attention being thereby drawn to this Data Protection Policy Statement. Insofar as the data are required for purposes of technical optimisation and improving dispatch and presentation, the legal basis is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.
Use of the email address and the further data of the user collected through the contact form have the purpose of enabling the Newsletter to be sent to you and providing you with targeted information. The personal data processed in connection with use of the tracking pixel are stored and evaluated by us for the purpose of optimising distribution of the Newsletter and bringing the content of future Newsletters even more closely into line with the interests of the recipients. Targeted observation or profiling of individual recipients is not conducted as part of this process. The collection of other personal data in connection with the registration or deregistration process has the purpose of preventing misuse of the services or the email addresses used.
The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer needed for the purpose for which they were collected. The data collected in the course of registration for the Newsletter will remain stored until the user deregisters, i.e. unsubscribes the Newsletter. The other personal data collected in the course of the registration process (IP address of the computer from which the request came) are normally deleted after a period of seven days.
The Newsletter subscription can be cancelled at any time. This can be done by using the “Unsubscribe” button provided in the FOLLOW-ME! Newsletter or by sending in a notice of cancellation by email to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. By doing this, you withdraw your consent.
Rights of the data subject
If any of your personal data is processed, you are the “data subject” as defined in the GDPR, and you are entitled to the following rights against us in our capacity as the “data controller”:
Every data subject has the right under Article 15 GDPR to be informed of data, under Article 16 GDPR the right to rectification of data, under Article 17 GDPR the right to erasure/deletion of data, under Article 18 GDPR the right to restriction of processing of data, under Article 20 GDPR the right to portability of data, and under Article 21 GDPR the right to object to the processing of data. With regard to the right to be informed and the right to demand erasure/deletion, the restrictions provided for in §§ 34 and 35 BDSG [German Federal Data Protection Act] apply. You additionally have a right under Article 77 GDPR in conjunction with § 19 BDSG to complain to the responsible data protection supervisory authority.
Consent to the processing of personal data can be withdrawn at any time by notification to us. Please note that your notice of withdrawal is only effective for the future and leaves the data processing done up to that time unaffected.
