Provider and Responsible Body as defined by the Data Protection Act:
SHE Informationstechnologie AG
The legal framework for data protection is set by the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the German Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG) as well as the Telemediengesetz (TMG).
Integration of Services and Contracts of Third Parties
Our website may include content, services and services of other providers. These are, for example, maps provided by Google Maps, videos from YouTube as well as graphics and images from other websites. In order for these data to be accessed and displayed in the user’s browser, the transmission of the IP address is absolutely necessary. The providers (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) thus perceive the IP address of the re-spective user.
Although we strive to only use third-party vendors who only need the IP address to deliv-er content, we have no control over whether the IP address may be stored. This process is used in the case, among others, of statistical purposes. Provided that we are aware that the IP address will be stored, we will inform our users.
If you contact us (e.g. via web form, e-mail, telephone or social media), your contact de-tails will be stored to process the request.
Optionally, you may agree to the storage of your contact details beyond the processing of the request in order to receive future information on further services or invitations to events from us.
The transfer of your data to our website is encrypted. Further processing takes place in a “Customer Relationship Management System.”
Cookies fulfill two main tasks. They help us to facilitate navigation through our website and enable the correct presentation of the website. They are not used to inject viruses or launch programs.
Users have the opportunity to access our website without cookies. To do this, the appro-priate settings must be changed in the browser. Please refer to the help function of your browser for how to deactivate cookies. However, we would like to point out that this may affect some features of this site and reduce its convenience.
Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies,” text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of your use of our website. The information generated by the cookies about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymization on our website, your IP address will be shortened by Google beforehand within member states of the Eu-ropean Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in certain cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other ser-vices related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator provided. The IP address provided by Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You can prevent the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software. We point out, however, that in this case you may not have full usage of the website’s functionality.
In addition, you may prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cook-ies and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as the pro-cessing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in availa-ble under the following link: Browser Add On for Disabling Google Analytics .
Use of Piwik
This website uses Piwik, an open-source software that collects and stores data. This in-formation is for marketing and optimization purposes. Piwik creates a pseudonym from the data usage profiles. For this purpose, the software stores cookies (text files) on your computer, which allow us to analyze your use of our website. Your IP address will be anonymized immediately after processing and before storage. The data is stored on our server in Germany.
If you do not want Piwik to save cookies, you have the option of disabling the installation of cookies via your browser settings (information can be found in the help function of your browser). In this case, you may not be able to use all features of the website.
Use of YouTube
Social Media Plug-Ins
We integrate plug-ins on the social networks of Facebook, Google+, Xing, LinkedIn and Twitter on our websites. You can recognize these plug-ins by the logos of social networks or the button labels such as “Like”, “Share”, “Comment” and “Tweet.”
By using the “Shariff” software of the Heise magazine publisher, the social media plug-ins only become active when you click on the corresponding button.
After clicking on one of these buttons, your browser establishes a direct connection to a server of the social network. This server may be located outside of the European Union. We have no influence on the type and extent of data collected, stored and processed by the social network. We can only inform you according to our knowledge.
The social network receives the information about your visit at the according page on our website when you click on the respective button. This also applies to users who are not registered with the social network. In this case, it is possible for the social network to store the IP address of your browser.
If you are a member of the respective social network and logged in with it, the click of the button and the visit of our website can be clearly assigned to your user account at the social network. Under certain circumstances, additional data will be transmitted to the social network.
The server log files are anonymized data that is collected when you access our website. This information does not allow any conclusions to be drawn personally, while for technical reasons, it is indispensable for the delivery and presentation of our content. Also this data serves the purpose of statistics and of improving our website content.
Typical log files contain the date and time of the access, the amount of data, the browser used for access and its version, the operating system used, the domain name of the provider, the page from which you came to our website (referrer URL) and your IP address. Log files also allow for an accurate examination in case of suspected illegal use of our website.
Personal data is stored according to the principles of data avoidance and data economy only as long as necessary or required by law (legal storage period). If the purpose of the information collected is omitted or the storage period ends, we block or delete the data.
Your rights to information, correction, locking, deletion and objection
You have the right, free of charge, to ask for information about the personal data stored by us and/or to request a correction, blocking or deletion. Exceptions: we need to store the data for the transaction or the data are subject to the legal storage obligation.
To be able to consider a data lock at any time, it is necessary to keep the data in a lock file for control purposes. If there is no statutory archiving obligation, you can also demand the deletion of the data. Otherwise we will block the data if you so wish.
