Privacy policy

Data protection

We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is of particular importance to the management of Nutz GmbH. Use of the Nutz GmbH website is possible without any personally identifiable information being collected about you. However, if an affected person wishes to use our company’s special services through our website, personal data processing may be required. If the processing of personal data is required and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally seek the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection provisions applicable to Nutz GmbH. By means of this privacy policy, our company aims to inform the public about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal information we collect, use and compile. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of their rights under this privacy policy.

Nutz GmbH, as the sole owner, has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the complete protection of personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can have security holes, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to submit personal data to us in alternative ways, for example by telephone.

4. Cookies

The website of Nutz GmbH uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored and saved on a computer system via an Internet browser. Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string through which internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific internet browser, in which the cookie was saved. This allows visited websites and servers to distinguish the individual’s browser from other internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular web browser can be recognized and identified by the unique cookie ID.

By using cookies, Nutz GmbH can provide users of its website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting. By means of a cookie the information and offers on our website can be optimized for the user. Cookies allow us, as already mentioned, to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to track and target the interests of our users to enhance their experience on our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies need not reenter their credentials each time they visit the website, as this is done by the website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer system.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.

5. Collection of general data and information

The website of Nutz GmbH collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by an affected person or an automated system. This general data and information is stored on the log files of the server as follows:

(1) browser types and versions used.

(2) the operating system used by the accessing system.

(3) the internet page from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrers).

(4) the sub-web pages which can be accessed.

(5) the date and time of access to the website.

(6) the Internet Protocol address (IP address).

(7) the internet service provider of the accessing system.

(8) other similar data and information used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

(2) to optimize the content of our website and to advertise it.

(3) to ensure the continued functioning of our information technology systems and the technology of our website.

(4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyberattack.

This anonymously collected data and information is statistically held by Nutz GmbH with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure the best possible level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by an affected person.

A social network can serve as a platform to exchange views and experiences, or allows the Internet community to provide personal or business information. Facebook allows social network users to create private profiles, upload photos and socialize via friend requests.
The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA.
The person responsible for the processing of personal data when an affected person
is living outside the US or Canada, is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Each visit to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated,

automatically causes a representation of the corresponding Facebook component of Facebook to download by the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned. An overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_US. As part of this technical process, Facebook receives information about which specific sub-pages of our website is visited by the person concerned.
If the data subject is simultaneously logged into Facebook, Facebook recognizes with each visit to our website by the data subject and during the entire duration of the respective stay on our website, which specific sub-pages of our website the data subject visits. This information is collected through the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the person concerned activates one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the “Like” button, or if the person concerned makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the person concerned and saves this personal data ,

Facebook always receives information via the Facebook component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the same time as accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the person clicks on the Facebook component or not. If such a transfer of this information to Facebook is not wanted by the data subject, they can prevent the transfer by logging out of their Facebook account before accessing our website. The data policy published by Facebook, which is available at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains which options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, various applications are available which make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook, for example the Facebook blocker of the provider Webgraph, which can be found at http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/ and can be procured. Such applications can be used by the data subject to suppress data transmission to Facebook.

11. Privacy Policy for use and use of Google Analytics (with anonymization feature)

The controller has integrated on this website the component Google Analytics (with anonymization function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the measurement, collection and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data on which website a user has come from (so-called referrers), which sub-pages of the website were accessed or how often and for which length of stay a sub-page was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The controller uses the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp” for web analytics via Google Analytics. By means of this addendum, the IP address of the Internet access of the data subject will be shortened and anonymised by Google if the access to our website is from a Member State of the European Union or from another State party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze visitor flows on our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, to compile for us online reports showing the activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website. Google Analytics uses a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are, has already been previously explained. By using this cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the usage of our website. Each time one of the pages of this website is accessed by the controller and a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically initiated by the respective Google Analytics component to submit data to Google for online analysis purposes. As part of this technical process, Google will be aware of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which allow, among other things, Google to track the origin of the visitors and clicks, and subsequently make commission settlements possible.

The cookie stores personally identifiable information, such as access time, the location from which access was made, and the frequency of site visits by the data subject. Each time you visit our website, your personal information, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal information is stored by Google in the United States of America.

Google may transfer such personal data collected through the technical process to third parties. The affected person can prevent the setting of cookies through our website, as shown above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
Furthermore, the data subject has the option of objecting to and preventing the collection of the data generated by Google Analytics by the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. To do this, the person must download and install a browser add-on at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about website visits may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google as a contradiction. If the data subject’s information technology system is later deleted, formatted or reinstalled, the data subject must re-install the browser add-on to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or disabled by the data subject or any other person within their sphere of control, it is possible to reinstall or reactivate the browser add-on.

Additional information and Google’s privacy policy can be found at: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/en.html. Google Analytics from this link https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/ is explained in more detail.

12. Privacy Policy on Use and Use of Google AdWords

The controller has integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to run both Google and Google Network search engine results. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-set keywords that will display an ad on Google’s search engine when the search engine retrieves a keyword-related search result. In the Google Network, ads are distributed on topical web pages using an automated algorithm and according to pre-defined keywords.

The operating company of the services of Google AdWords is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of Google AdWords is to promote our website by displaying interest-based advertising on third-party websites and in the search engine results of Google’s search engine and by displaying advertisements on our website.

If a data subject arrives on our website via a Google ad, a so-called conversion cookie will be stored on Google’s information technology system by Google. What cookies are, has already been previously explained. A conversion cookie expires after thirty days and is not used to identify the data subject. About the conversion cookie; if the cookie has not yet expired, it is traced by whether certain sub-pages, such as the shopping cart from an online shop system, were accessed on our website. The conversion cookie allows both us and Google to understand whether an affected person who came to our website via an AdWords ad, generated revenue, i.e. completed or canceled a purchase.

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to create visitor statistics for our website. These visit statistics are then used by us to determine the total number of users who have been sent to us through AdWords ads, in order to determine the success or failure of each AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads for the future.

Neither our company nor any other Google AdWords advertiser receives any information from Google that could identify the data subject.
The conversion cookie stores personally identifiable information, such as the web pages visited by the affected person. Each time you visit our website, your personal information, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, will be transferred to Google in the United States of America.

This personal information is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may transfer such personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.
The affected person can prevent the setting of cookies through our website, as shown above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the data subject has the opportunity to object to Google’s interest-based advertising. To do this, the person concerned must access the link www.google.com/settings/ads from each of the internet browsers they use and make the desired settings there.

Additional information and Google’s privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

15. Lawfulness of processing

Article 6(1a) of the DS-GVO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract of which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, in processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, processing shall be based on article 6(1b) of the DS-GVO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on article 6 (1c) of the DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be for example, if a visitor to our facility were injured and his / her name, age, health insurance or other vital information would need to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. The processing would be based on article 6 (1d) of the DS-GMO. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on article 6 (1f) of the DS-GMO, on this legal basis, processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal basises are required if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned prevail.
Such processing operations are particularly allowed to us because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this regard, it is considered that a legitimate interest has to be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).

16. Authorized interests in the processing that are being pursued by the controller or a third party

The processing of personal data based on Article 6(1f) of the DS-GVO is our legitimate interest in conducting our business for the benefit of all of our employees and our shareholders.

17. Duration for which the personal data is stored

The criteria for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, if it is no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract.

18. Legal or contractual agreements for the provision of personal data

Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision.
We clarify that the provision of personal information is in part required by law, such as tax regulations, or may result from contractual arrangements, such as details of the contractor. Occasionally it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded, that an affected person provides us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is required to provide us with personal information when our company enters into a contract with him / her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned cannot be completed. Before the data has been provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact our DPO. Our data protection officer will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract if there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what would be the consequence of the failure to provide the personal data.
