2   Collection and storage of personal data and the nature and purpose of its use

2.1  When visiting the website

When you access our website www.playfit.de, the browser on your device automatically sends information to our website's server. This information is saved in what is known as a log file.  The following information is recorded without your intervention and is stored until it is automatically deleted:

  • IP address (Internet Protocol address) of the computer making the request,
  • date and time of access,
  • name and URL of the file accessed,
  • website from which access is made (referrer URL),
  • the browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer and the name of your access provider.

The aforementioned data will be processed by us for the following purposes:

  • Ensuring a smooth connection to the website,
  • ensuring our website can be used comfortably,
  • evaluation of system safety and stability, and
  • for other administrative purposes.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the data collection purposes listed above. Under no circumstances do we use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person. We also use cookies and analysis services when you visit our website. More detailed explanations can be found under Items 8 and 9 of this privacy policy.

2.2  Contact possibilities via the website

The playfit GmbH website contains information (postal address, telephone number, fax number and e-mail address), which also enables our company to be contacted electronically and allows direct communication with us. If you contact playfit GmbH by e-mail, the personal data you send us will be stored. Data processing for the purpose of contacting playfit GmbH is carried out in accordance with Art. 6(1)(a) of the GDPR on the basis of your voluntarily given consent.

 

3   Transfer of data

Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those listed below. We only pass on your personal data to third parties if:

  • – you have given your express consent pursuant to Art. 6(1)(A) of the GDPR,
  • – the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6(1)(A) of the GDPR is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in not disclosing your data,
  • – in the event that there is a legal obligation to pass on data in accordance with Art. 6(1)(C) of the GDPR,
  • – or if it is legally permissible and is required in accordance with Art. 6(1)(B) of the GDPR for the processing of contractual relationships with you.

 

4   Legal basis of processing

Art. 6(1)(A) of the GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6(1)(B) of the GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary in order to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example when enquiring about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which makes it necessary to process personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1)(C) of the GDPR. Finally, processing operations may be based on Art. 6(1)(F) of the GDPR: Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, unless this conflicts with the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject. Processing operations such as this are permitted to us in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, they took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the person concerned is a customer of the person responsible (Recital 47, Sentence 2 of the GDPR).

 

5   Duration of storage of personal data

The duration of the storage of personal data is determined by the respective legal retention period (e.g. commercial and tax law retention periods). After the deadline has expired, the corresponding data is routinely deleted if it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract and/or we have no justified interest in further storage.

 

6   Rights of data subjects

  • to request information about your personal data processed by us in accordance with Art. 15 of the GDPR.

9. Analysis tools

Tracking tools

The tracking measures listed below and used by us are carried out on the basis of Art. 6(1)(F) of the GDPR. With the tracking measures we use, we want to ensure that our website is designed to meet your needs and is continuously optimised. On the other hand, we use tracking measures to record statistically how our website is used and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our service for you. These interests are to be regarded as legitimate within the meaning of the aforementioned provision. The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corresponding tracking tools.

9.1 Google Analytics

For the purpose of designing and continuously optimising our website to meet your needs, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service by Google Inc. (https://www.google.de/ intl/en/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter "Google"). In this context, pseudonymised user profiles are created and cookies (see Item 4) are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as

  • Browser type/version,
  • Operating system
  • Referrer URL (the previously visited page),
  • Host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
  • Time of the server request,

are transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the way the website is used, to compile reports on website activity and to provide further services associated with the use of the website and the internet for the purpose of market research and designing this website to meet requirements. This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on our behalf. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other data from Google. The IP addresses are made anonymous such that they cannot be assigned to users (IP masking).

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie which relates to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).

As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent Google Analytics from recording the data by clicking on https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent your data being collected when you visit this website in future. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.

Further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics can be found in the Google Analytics Help area (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de).

9.2 Google Adwords Conversion Tracking

In order to record the use of our website statistically and evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our website for you, we also use Google Conversion Tracking. Google Adwords will set a cookie (see Item 4) on your computer if you have reached our website via a Google advertisement.

These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages on the Adwords client's website and the cookie has not expired, Google and the client will be able to tell that the user clicked on the ad and was directed to that page.

Every Adwords customer receives a different cookie. This means that cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of Adwords clients. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Adwords customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page containing a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to identify users personally.

If you do not wish to take part in the tracking procedure, you can also prevent the necessary cookie from being set, for example by setting your browser so that cookies in general are not created automatically. You

can also disable cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain "www.googleadservices.com".

Google's privacy policy on conversion tracking can be found here (https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html)

9.3  Use and application of Google Remarketing

Services by Google Remarketing are integrated into our website. Google Remarketing is a function of Google AdWords which enables a company to display advertising to internet users who have previously visited their website. Accordingly, integrating Google Remarketing allows a company to create user-relevant advertising and to display advertisements related to users’ interests. The company operating the Google Remarketing services is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of Google Remarketing is to display advertisements relevant to users’ interests. Google Remarketing enables us to display advertisements via the Google advertising network that are tailored to the individual needs and interests of internet users, or to have them displayed on other websites.

Google Remarketing places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is able to recognise visitors to our website if they subsequently visit other websites that are also members of the Google advertising network. Each time a website into which the Google Remarketing service has been integrated is accessed, the internet browser of the person concerned automatically identifies itself to Google. In the course of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data such as the IP address or the surfing behaviour of the user, which Google uses among other things to display advertisements relevant to users’ interests.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the websites visited by the person concerned. Accordingly, whenever you visit our website, personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected via this technical process to third parties.

The person concerned can prevent our website from setting cookies, as already described above, at any time, by means of a corresponding setting in their internet browser and thus permanently prevent cookies from being set. Such an internet browser setting would also prevent Google from placing 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.

Furthermore, the data subject has the option to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, the data subject must access the following link on each of the browsers they use www.google.de/settings/ads and select the relevant settings.

Further information and Google's applicable privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

 

10  Use and application of YouTube

Our website uses plugins from the site YouTube operated by Google. The website is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

When you visit one of our webpages which features the YouTube plug-in, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited.

If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

YouTube is used in the interest of presenting our online services in an attractive way. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6(1)(F) of the GDPR.

For more information on the handling of user data, please refer to the YouTube privacy policy at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

 

11   Data protection

When you visit our website, we use the common SSL (Secure Socket Layer) procedure in conjunction with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser. This is generally 256-bit SSL encryption (TLS 1.2). You can tell whether a specific page on our website is transmitted in encrypted form by looking for the closed padlock in the browser or status bar and by the character sequence “https://” in the URL bar of your browser.

We also use suitable technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or deliberate manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or unauthorised access by third parties. We are continuously improving the security measures we use in line with technological developments.
