Please note your right of objection with regard to processing data for the purpose of direct marketing or for personal reasons (see section on rights of the data subject).

Who will receive your personal data and for what reason?

Disclosure of data to third parties

Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties by us if this is necessary to fulfil the contract, if we or the third party have a justified interest in passing it on or if you have consented to this. If data are transmitted to third parties, this is explained in these provisions on data protection. In the case of transmission on the basis of consent, the explanation can also be given at the point at which consent is obtained.

In addition, data may be transferred to third parties if we are required to do so by law or by an enforceable official or court order.

Providers of services

We reserve the right to use service providers for the purpose of collecting and/or processing data. Service providers receive from us only the personal data that they require for their specific activities. For example, your e-mail address can be passed on to a service provider so that said provider of services can send you a newsletter you have ordered. Providers of services may also be asked to provide server capacity. As a rule, service providers are integrated as so-called contract processors who may only process the personal data of the users of this online service in accordance with our instructions.

Insofar as service providers are not already named in these data protection provisions (e. g. in the area of web analysis), the following categories of service providers are involved:

Webhosting (provision of servers, EEA) IT service providers (video player, Germany)

When do we give data to countries outside the European Economic Area?

Transferring data to non-EEA countries

We also pass on personal data to third parties and/or contract processors who have their registered office in non-EEA countries. In this case, before disclosure, we will ensure that the recipient either has an adequate level of data protection (e. g. by self-certifying the recipient for the EU-US-Privacy Shield in conjunction with the Commission's adequacy decision under Art. 45 GDPR or the agreement of so-called EU standard contractual clauses of the European Commission with the recipient pursuant to Art. 46 GDPR ) 46 GDPR) or the express consent of our users.

This concerns third parties or contract processors in the following countries: USA, Switzerland

We can provide you with an overview of the recipients in third countries and a copy of the specifically agreed regulations to ensure the appropriate level of data protection. Please use the information in the section Kontakt for this purpose.

For how long do we store your data?

Duration of storage and retention periods

We will store your data for as long as is necessary to provide our online service and the associated services or for as long as we have a justified interest in further storage In all other cases, we will delete your personal data with the exception of data that we are required to maintain for contractual or legal (e.g. B. tax or commercial) retention periods (e.g. invoices). Contractual retention periods may also result from contracts with third parties (e.g. holders of copyright and related rights)

Data that is subject to a retention period will be blocked until the expiry of this period.

Log files

Each time you use the Internet, certain information is automatically transmitted by your Internet browser and stored by us in so-called log files.

The log files are stored by us for 7 to 10 days exclusively for the purpose of determining disruptions and for security reasons. B. (e.g. for the clarification of attack attempts); subsequently they are deleted. Log files for which extended storage is required for evidence purposes are excluded from deletion until the respective incident has been finally clarified; they may be passed on to investigating authorities in individual cases.

In particular, the following information is stored in the log files:

  • IP address (Internet protocol address) of the device from which the online service is accessed;
  • Internet address of the website from which the online service was accessed (so-called origin or referrer URL);
  • name of the service provider through which the online service is accessed;

Cookies

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are sent when a website is visited and stored in the user's browser. If the corresponding website is called up again, the user's browser sends back the contents of the cookies and thus enables the user to be recognised again. Certain cookies are automatically deleted after the end of the browser session (so-called session cookies); others are stored for a specified time or permanently in the user's browser and then delete themselves automatically (so-called temporary or permanent cookies).

What data is stored in the cookies?

Cookies do not store any personal data, only an online identifier.

How can you prevent the use of cookies or how can you delete cookies?

You can deactivate the storage of cookies via your browser settings and delete cookies already stored in your browser at any time (see Technical information). Please note, however, that this online service may not function properly without cookies.

Please also note that objections to the creation of user profiles are sometimes implemented with the help of a so-called "opt-out cookie". Should you delete all cookies, an objection may therefore no longer be applicable and must be lodged again by you.

What type of cookies do we use?

Essential cookies

Specific cookies are considered essential to the secure provision of our online service. They include, for example,

  • cookies used for the identification or authentication of our users;
  • Cookies that temporarily store certain user inputs (e.g. contents of a shopping basket or an online form);
  • Cookies that store certain user preferences (such as search or language settings);
  • Cookies that store data to ensure uninterrupted playback of video and audio content.

Analysis cookies

We use analysis cookies to record and statistically evaluate our users' usage behaviour B. (e.g. clicked advertising banners, visited subpages, search queries). For further information, please refer to the section relating to web analytics:

Tracking cookies relating to social plugins

The integration of social plugins regularly results in the storage of cookies by the providers of plugins.

Advertising cookies

We also use cookies for advertising purposes. The profiles on usage behaviour, simply referred to as "usage profiles" (e.g. B. clicked advertising banners, visited subpages, search queries) created with the aid of these cookies are used by us to display advertising or offers tailored to your interests ("interest-based advertising"). For further information, please refer to the section on interest-based advertising

Third-party advertising cookies

We also allow other companies to collect information from our users using advertising cookies ("usage profiles"). This enables us and third parties to display interest-based advertising to users of our online services based on an analysis of their usage patterns (e. g. clicked advertising banners, visited sub-pages, search queries made) as a whole and not limited to our online services.

Opt-out option

Further information about cookies is provided by the consumer interest portal meine-cookies.org. Using the following link to this portal, you can also view the status of activation with regard to tools from different providers and object to the collection or evaluation of your data by these tools: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/ch-de/praferenzmanagement

A central objection option for various tools, in particular those of US providers, can also be found at the following link: optout.networkadvertising.org

Web analysis

Web analysis

We need statistical information about the use of our online service in order to make it more user-friendly, measure reach and conduct market research. For this purpose, we use the following web analysis tools. The usage profiles created by the tools using analysis cookies or by evaluating the log files are not merged with personal data.

The tools either do not use users' IP addresses at all or shorten them immediately after collection.

For each tool you will find information about the respective provider and how you can object to the collection and processing of data by the tool.

In the case of tools that implement the objection using opt-out cookies, it should be noted that the opt-out function is device- or browser-related and fundamentally only applies to the terminal device or browser currently being used. If you use multiple mobile devices or browsers, you must set the opt-out on each individual mobile device and in each browser used.

In addition, you can also prevent the creation of user profiles by generally deactivating the use of cookies.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). We use Google Analytics with the additional function offered by Google to anonymise IP addresses: here the IP address of Google is usually already shortened within the EU and only in exceptional cases in the USA; in each case it is only stored in its shortened form.

You can object to the collection or evaluation of your data by this tool by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Tag Manager. This service allows website tags to be managed via an interface. Google Tag Manager only implements tags. This means that no cookies are used and no personal data is collected. Google Tool Manager triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. However, Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If deactivation has been made at the domain or cookie level, it will remain in place for all tracking tags as long as they are implemented with Google Tag Manager.

For more information about Google Tag Manager, please refer to: google.de/tagmanager/faq.html as well as google.de/tagmanager/use-policy.html

SZM reach measurement

Our website uses the measurement method ("SZMnG") of https://www.INFOnline.deINFOnline GmbH for the purpose of determining statistical parameters relating to the use of our services. The aim of usage measurement is to statistically determine the number of visits to our website, the number of website visitors and their surfing behaviour - on the basis of a uniform standard procedure - and thus to obtain data that is comparable at a cross-market level. As regards digital services provided by entities that are members of Informationsgemeinschaft zur Feststellung der Verbreitung von Werbeträgern e.V. http://www.ivw.eu or participate in studies of Arbeitsgemeinschaft Online-Forschung e.V. http://www.agof.de, all usage statistics are regularly processed by AGOF and Arbeitsgemeinschaft Media-Analyse e.V. http://www.agma-mmc.de to create reach data; this is published using the performance indicator "Unique User"; it is also published by IVW using the performance indicators "Page Impression" and "Visits". These reach data and statistics can be viewed at the respective websites.

Legal basis for processing

Measurement by means of the SZMnG method applied by INFOnline GmbH is conducted on the basis of a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR. The purpose of processing personal data is to compile statistics and create user categories. The statistics serve to trace and document the use of our service. The user categories form the basis for an interest-driven alignment of advertising media or advertising measures. In order to market this website, it is essential that we measure its usage in order to ensure comparability with other market participants. Our legitimate interest results from the economic usability of the knowledge resulting from the statistics and user categories and the market value of our website - also in direct comparison with websites of third parties - which can be determined on the basis of the statistics. In addition, we have a legitimate interest in making the pseudonymised data available to INFOnline, AGOF and IVW for market research (AGOF, agma) and statistical purposes (INFOnline, IVW). Furthermore, we have a legitimate interest in making the pseudonymised data available to INFOnline for the further development and provision of advertising media in line with our interests.

Type of data

INFOnline GmbH collects the following data that according to EU GDPR are personal in nature:

  • IP address: on the Internet, every device needs a unique address to transmit data, the so-called IP address. Due to the way the Internet functions, storing the IP address, at least for a short period of time, is necessary in technical terms. The IP addresses are shortened by 1 byte prior to any form of processing and are subsequently processed solely in an anonymised format. The unabridged IP addresses are neither stored nor processed.

  • Randomly generated client identifier: For the recognition of computer systems, reach processing uses either a cookie with the identifier "ioam.de", a "local storage object" or a signature that is created from browser information automatically transmitted from your system. This identifier is unique to a browser as long as the cookie or local storage object are not deleted. Measurement of the data and subsequent assignment to the respective client identifier are therefore also possible if you call up other websites that also use the INFOnline GmbH measurement method ("SZMnG").

The validity of the cookie is limited to a maximum of 1 year.

Use of data

The INFOnline GmbH measurement method used on this website collects usage data. This is done in order to collect details relating to page impressions, visits and clients and to determine further key performance indicators (e.g. qualified clients). In addition, the data measured are used as follows:

  • So-called geolocalisation, i.e. the assignment of a website visit to the location of the visit, takes place exclusively on the basis of the anonymous IP address and only up to the geographical level of the federal states/regions. Under no circumstances can the geographical information thus obtained be used to draw conclusions about the actual whereabouts of a user.

  • The usage data of a technical client (e.g. a browser on a device) is merged across websites and stored in a database. This information is used for the technical assessment of the socio-information relating to age and gender and is transferred to AGOF's service providers for further reach-specific processing. The AGOF analysis uses a random sample to technically assess socio-characteristics that can be assigned to the following categories: age, gender, nationality, occupation, marital status, general household information, household income, place of residence, Internet use, online interests, place of use, user type.

Duration of data storage

INFOnline GmbH does not store the complete IP address. The shortened IP address is stored for a maximum of 60 days. Usage data in conjunction with the unique identifier are stored for a maximum of 6 months.

Transfer of data

The IP address and the shortened IP address are not passed on. For the preparation of the AGOF analysis, data with client identifiers are passed on to the following AGOF service providers:

Rights of data subject

The data subject has the following rights:

  • Right of access (Art. 15 GDPR)
  • Right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR)
  • Right to object (Art. 21 GDPR)
  • Right to erasure (Art. 17 GDPR)
  • Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18f. GDPR)
  • Right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR) As regards queries of this nature, please contact mailto:datenschutz@wetter.dedatenschutz@wetter.com. Please note that we must ensure that such queries relate specifically to the person concerned.

Right of objection

If you do not wish to participate in such measurement, you can object using the following link: https://optout.ioam.dehttps://optout.ioam.de
To guarantee exclusion from such measurement, it is necessary for technical reasons to set a cookie. If you delete the cookies in your browser, it is necessary to repeat the opt-out process under the above link. The data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection authority. Further information on data protection in respect of the measurement process can be found on the website of INFOnline GmbH https://www.infonline.de/, which operates the measurement process, the data protection website of AGOF http://www.agof.de/datenschutz and the data protection website of IVW http://www.ivw.eu.

Recording and evaluation of usage behaviour for interest-based advertising (also by third parties)

Recording and evaluation of usage behaviour for interest-based advertising (also by third parties)

We would like to provide advertisements or special offers tailored to user interests ("interest-based advertising") and limit the frequency with which certain advertisements are displayed. For this purpose, we use the following tools.

The usage profiles created by the tools using advertising cookies or advertising cookies of third parties, so-called web beacons (invisible graphics, also called pixels or tracking pixels), or comparable technologies are not merged with personal data.

The tools are used by vendors to display interest-based advertising to our users in our online offerings and third-party offerings, and to control how often users view certain ads. The person/entity responsible for the processing of data in connection with the tools is the respective provider, unless we have indicated otherwise. The providers of the tools may also pass on information to third parties for the aforementioned purposes.

The tools either do not process users' IP addresses at all or shorten them immediately after collection.

The person/entity responsible for the processing of data in connection with the tools is the respective provider, unless we have indicated otherwise. The providers of the tools may also pass on information to third parties for the aforementioned purposes.

You will find information about the provider of each tool and how you can object to the collection of data using this tool. Please note that your objection does not deactivate advertising. Your objection only means that no interest-based advertising based on your usage behaviour can be displayed to you.

For tools that work with opt-out cookies, it should be noted that the opt-out function is device- or browser-related and only applies to the device or browser currently being used. If you use multiple mobile devices or browsers, you must set the opt-out on each individual mobile device and in each browser used.

In addition, you can also prevent the creation of user profiles in general by deactivating the use of cookies .

Further information on interest-based advertising is available on the consumer portal http://www.meine-cookies.org. Using the following link to this portal, you can also view the status of activation with regard to tools from different providers and object to the collection or processing of your data by means of these tools: http://www.meine-cookies.org/cookies_verwalten/‌praeferenzmanager-beta.html.

A central objection option for various tools, in particular those of US providers, can also be found at the following link: http://optout.networkadvertising.org/#/

Furthermore, we or our marketers allow SevenOneMedia https://www.sevenonemedia.de to set cookies for third parties, such as media agencies, in order to analyse the use of online advertising and to present you with special advertising of interest to you based on your preferences. In addition, media agencies are to be enabled to address the target group of their advertisers as precisely as possible and without substantial wastage.

In this context, for example, anonymous user statistics are compiled and the data is used for market research purposes. It is not possible to deduce the identity of a person.
