4.    Data collection on our website

Cookies

Some of our web pages use cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies help make our website more user-friendly, efficient, and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called „session cookies“. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device‘s memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognize your browser when you next visit the site.
You can configure your browser to inform you about the use of cookies so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject a cookie. Alternatively, your browser can be configured to automatically accept cookies under certain conditions or to always reject them, or to automatically delete cookies when closing your browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website. Cookies which are necessary to allow electronic communications are stored pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1, letter f of DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to ensure an optimized service provided free of technical errors. If other cookies (such as those used to analyze your surfing behavior) are also stored, they will be treated separately in this privacy policy.

Server log files

The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in „server log files“.
These are:
•    Browser type and browser version
•    Operating system used
•    Referrer URL
•    Host name of the accessing computer
•    Time of the server request
•    IP address
These data will not be combined with data from other sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.

Contact form

Should you send us questions via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your permission.
We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.
We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.

Leaving comments on our blog

If you use the comment function on our blog, the time at which you created the comment and your email address will be stored along with your comment, as well as your username, unless you are posting anonymously. You will be notified by e-mail when a new response to your comment has been received. Your e-mail address will be deleted after two years.

Storage of the IP address

Our comment function stores the IP addresses of those users who post comments. Although we do check comments on our site before they go live, we need this information to be able to pursue action for illegal or slanderous content.

How long comments are stored

The comments and the associated data (e.g. IP address) are stored and remain on our website until the content commented upon has been completely deleted or the comments are required to be removed for legal reasons (slander, etc.).

Legal basis

The comments are stored based on your consent per Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time with future effect. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

5.    Analytics and advertising

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called „cookies“. These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
Google Analytics cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising.

IP anonymization
We have activated the IP anonymization feature on this website. Your IP address will be shortened by Google within the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States.

Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services regarding website activity and Internet usage for the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.

Browser plugin
You can prevent these cookies being stored by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. However, we wish to point out that doing so may mean you will not be able to enjoy the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the data generated by cookies about your use of the website (incl. your IP address) from being passed to Google, and the processing of these data by Google, by down- loading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Objecting to the collection of data

You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent your data from being collected on future visits to this site: Disable Google Analytics.

Purpose and categories of personal data:

We process the following personal data from you:

 

o    User name

This data comes from direct collection, which means that we have received this data from you (by you leaving a comment or a like). Your data is used for the purpose of contacting you (support, replies to private messages, and enquiries about products).

Processing of personal data of Meta:

In its decision of 5 June 2018, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruled that the operator of a Facebook page is jointly responsible with Facebook for the processing of personal data. This is still the case after the change to Meta Ltd.

 

To our knowledge, Meta processes user data for the purposes of:

Meta uses cookies to store and process this data. If a user has a profile with a Meta programme, storage and analysis takes place across devices. You can find more information on Meta's data processing here: www.facebook.com/about/privacy

-    Shop views and clicks
-    Clicks on route planner
-    Clicks on telephone numbers
-    Language

 

Since Meta is constantly changing and developing, the availability and provision of data also changes, so we would like to refer once again to Meta's data protection declaration (https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy).

 

We use this collected data to make our posts more interesting for users, for example to optimise scheduling. We may identify subscribers and fans of the webpage, view their publicly visible profile and shared content, in accordance with meta-terms of use to which each user has agreed when creating their profiles.

 

Storage period of the data:

You have the option to delete your data at any time. We, as operators of the fan pages, do not delete any personal data.

 

Meta's retention and storage of personal data is defined in their privacy notice as follows: “We retain data until it is no longer needed to provide our services and Meta products, or until your account is deleted, whichever comes first.”

 

Recipient of the data:

Within Naturata AG, your personal data is received by those departments or employees who are responsible for our Meta programmes. As our web pages are a public website, any registered user can view your comments and/or "like" statements as well as your publicly accessible profile; we have no influence on this, nor on the storage of these, for example via screenshot.

 

You can view the recipients of the data at Meta directly in Meta's data protection notice (see de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy).

Rights of the persons concerned:

You have the right to information about the personal data we process about you. In the case of a request for information that is not made in writing, we ask for your understanding that we may then require evidence from you that proves that you are the person you claim to be.
