Processing your data

Any personal information you have sent to us, e.g. via our contact form or newsletter registration (e.g. your name and contact data) is only processed for correspondence with you and solely for the purpose for which the data was provided.
We assure you that we will not pass on your personal information to third parties, unless we are obliged to do so legally or you have expressly given your consent. To the extent that we use the services of third parties to implement and handle processing processes, the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act and the Telemedia Act are complied with.

We will not forward your personal data to third parties unless

  • you have given your express consent to do this pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR,
  • passing on your data is necessary in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not forwarding your data,

Furthermore, in performing our services we use external providers, who we have chosen carefully and commissioned in writing. They are bound by our instructions and are regularly monitored by us. If necessary, we have concluded contract processing agreements with them pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR. These include service providers for web hosting, sending e-mails, maintenance and servicing of our IT systems, etc. The service providers will not pass this data on to third parties.

  • Date and time of request

Data processing by submitting application documents on our website

In the linked document, we hereby inform you about the processing of personal data provided by you as part of the application process as well as any personal data collected by us and your rights in this regard. 

 

Blog   

In our blog, where we publish various posts on topics related to our activities, you can make public comments. Your comment will be published with your specified username at the post. The specification of user name and e-mail address is required, all other information is voluntary. If you submit a comment, we will continue to store your IP address. The storage is necessary for us to be able to defend ourselves against liability claims in cases of possible publication of illegal content. We need your e-mail address to contact you in the event that a third party objects to your comment as unlawful.

Registration and participation in the blog is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) EU DSGVO and is voluntary. In addition, you have the option to enter a private website. Here you can link details about yourself, your interests or your personal environment with your user name. When doing so and when formulating your comments, please observe our blog rules and the note on the content of third-party websites.

Please note that you cannot change or delete a comment once it has been written. If you wish to do so, please write a short e-mail to marketing@fischer-information.com. The editors reserve the right to delete those contributions that violate netiquette, are not conducive to a dialogue or do not relate to the contributions. There is no right to publication. Each user is responsible for the contributions published by him.  

Retrieving profile pictures from Gravatar

We use the service Gravatar of Automattic Inc., 60 29th Street #343, San Francisco, CA 94110, USA, within our blog.

Gravatar is a service where users can register and store profile pictures and their e-mail addresses. If users leave posts or comments on other online presences (especially blogs) with the respective email address, their profile pictures can thus be displayed next to the posts or comments. For this purpose, the email address provided by the users is transmitted to Gravatar in encrypted form for the purpose of checking whether a profile is stored for it. This is the sole purpose of transmitting the email address and it will not be used for any other purpose, but will be deleted afterwards.

Gravatar is used on the basis of our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO, as we use Gravatar to offer post and comment authors the opportunity to personalize their posts with a profile picture.

By displaying the images, Gravatar obtains the IP address of the users, as this is necessary for a communication between a browser and an online service. More information on the collection and use of data by Gravatar can be found in Automattic's privacy policy: https://automattic.com/privacy/

If users do not want a user image associated with their email address on Gravatar to appear in the comments, they should use an email address that is not on file with Gravatar to comment. We also point out that it is also possible to use an anonymous email address if users do not want their own email address to be sent to Gravatar. Users can completely prevent the transmission of data by not using our commenting system.                         

   

Online Feedback

We use the online customer feedback tool Mopinion to carry out and record customer feedback. Read more about their privacy policies here.

 

Contact form and contact by e-mail

If you send us inquiries via contact form or e-mail, your data from the inquiry form or your e-mail, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored by us for processing the inquiry and for the case of follow-up questions. Under no circumstances will we pass on this data without your consent. The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO and, if applicable, Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO if your request is aimed at concluding a contract. Your data will be deleted after final processing of your request, provided that there are no legal obligations to retain data. In the case of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, you can object to the processing of your personal data at any time with effect for the future.

 

Newsletter

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on our website with regular information on our services and products, you must provide us with your e-mail address. We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to send the newsletter. This means that we will not send our newsletter to you by e-mail until you have expressly confirmed that you agree to receive it. In the first step, you will receive an e-mail with a link that you can use to confirm that as the owner of the corresponding e-mail address, you wish to receive newsletters in future. By confirming this, you give us your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR that we may use your personal data for the purpose of sending you the desired newsletter.

When you register for the newsletter, we not only save the e-mail address required for sending the newsletter, but also the IP address via which you registered for the newsletter as well as the date and time of registration and confirmation, in order to trace any misuse at a later point in time.

You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time via the link included in the newsletter or by sending an e-mail to the data officer mentioned above. After you have successfully unsubscribed, your e-mail address will be deleted from our newsletter distribution list immediately, as long as you have not given your express consent for the collected data to be used further or it is otherwise legally permissible to continue processing the data.

We use the service of Inxmail GmbH, Wentzigerstr. 17, 79106 Freiburg, Germany, to send our newsletters; website: https://www.inxmail.de; privacy policy: https://www.inxmail.de/datenschutz 

Our newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels for the purpose of statistical analysis. Tracking pixels are miniature graphics that are embedded in emails sent in HTML format. By means of the embedded tracking pixel, we can recognize whether and when a newsletter e-mail has been opened. The data processing is based on the legal provisions of Art. 6 (1) f (legitimate interest) of the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). Our concern in terms of the DSGVO (legitimate interest) is to optimize the newsletter dispatch. The collected data is evaluated anonymously and not stored.

Our site uses the provider YouTube LLC , 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, represented by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, for the integration of videos. Normally, when you call up a page with embedded videos, your IP address is already sent to YouTube and cookies are installed on your computer. However, we have embedded our YouTube videos with the extended data protection mode (in this case, YouTube still contacts Google's Double Klick service, but personal data is not evaluated in the process, according to Google's privacy policy). This means that YouTube no longer stores information about visitors unless they watch the video. If you click on the video, your IP address is transmitted to Google and Google learns that you have viewed the video. If you are logged in to Google, this information is also assigned to your user account (you can only prevent this by logging out of Google before viewing the video).
