Collection of general information when visiting our website

Nature and purpose of processing

When you access our website, i.e., when you do not register or otherwise submit information, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider, your IP address and the like.

In particular, they are processed for the following purposes:

Ensuring a smooth connection setup of the website,
Ensuring a smooth use of our website,
evaluating system security and stability, and
for other administrative purposes.

We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. Information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us, if necessary, in order to optimize our Internet presence and the technology behind it.

Legal basis

The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.

Recipients

Recipients of the data may be technical service providers who act as order processors for the operation and maintenance of our website.

Storage period

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose for which it was collected. This is generally the case for data used to provide the website when the respective session has ended.

Provision prescribed or required

The provision of the aforementioned personal data is neither legally nor contractually required. However, without the IP address, the service and functionality of our website cannot be guaranteed. In addition, individual services and services may not be available or may be limited. For this reason, an objection is excluded.

Peronal Data

The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to protect personal data. This purpose is achieved by implementing and complying with the relevant legal requirements, such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual. This includes, for example, name, date of birth, social security number, e-mail address, but also geodata, IP addresses or other (online) identifiers and customer numbers.

Excluded from the scope of this privacy policy is anonymous or anonymized data that is used, for example, for surveys, statistical analysis or improvements to the website by measuring user behavior and therefore cannot be attributed to any individual, natural person. This is not personal data in the sense of this declaration.

UnitedAds processes the collected and stored personal data exclusively for the purposes stated in this declaration. UnitedAds does not sell or rent out data for the purpose of generating revenue. Data may only be passed on to third parties or published with the prior written consent of the person concerned. Data is processed either by UnitedAds itself or by selected order processors. The data is always kept secret.

Links

UnitedAds uses links to various social media services (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Xing, YouTube, Instagram) and other websites on its websites. Clicking on these links will take you directly to the social media service or website.

The collection and processing of personal data on the respective third-party websites is the sole responsibility of the respective service provider. UnitedAds has no influence on this and is therefore not responsible for the data processing.

Data collection and use

UnitedAds collects, stores and processes personal data for various purposes. This data is deleted after the respective legal basis ceases to apply, unless there are legal provisions or legitimate interests to the contrary.

Website

UnitedAds websites record and collect access data from website visitors and store this in log files. The data collected includes: Name of the website accessed, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.

UnitedAds has a legitimate interest in knowing the users of its own websites in order to optimize the services offered and further increase user-friendliness. UnitedAds therefore collects this data for the purpose of statistical evaluation and continuous optimization of the websites.

In addition, UnitedAds provides various contact forms on its websites to process requests from interested parties (e.g. for a product demo). Personal data (e.g. name, e-mail address, telephone number) is also requested in this process. This data is stored by UnitedAds in secure CRM systems in order to be able to answer the inquiries correctly and to have an overview of the inquirers and interested parties for follow-up inquiries or contacts.

Newsletter

With our newsletter we keep our customers and interested parties up to date and inform them about new offers, services and events. The newsletter serves to stay in constant communication with our customers, partners and interested parties.

In order to receive this service, we require the consent of the data subjects. In the process, general contact data (name and e-mail address) are requested and stored for the purpose of sending the newsletter until revoked. The data is used exclusively for this purpose and is not passed on to third parties.

In addition, UnitedAds stores the IP address as well as the time stamp of the newsletter registration in order to check or, if necessary, prove whether an e-mail address has been used by a third party without the knowledge and consent of the authorized person.

Newsletter recipients have the right to cancel the newsletter service at any time by simply using the unsubscribe link included in the newsletter or by sending a request to the contact details below. Thereafter, no more newsletters will be sent to the specified e-mail address and the stored data will be deleted immediately.

Cookies

Cookies are small text files that a website stores on the visitor’s respective device (PC, notebook, smartphone, tablet) when the website is visited. These cookies contain information about the user himself (e.g. IP address and information about the hardware and software used) and about the website visited.

UnitedAds uses cookies to constantly improve the performance of the website and to better understand the user behavior of website visitors. UnitedAds has an interest in constantly improving and developing its websites, making them even more user-friendly, effective and secure. For this purpose, user behavior on UnitedAds websites is analyzed and this data is stored without personal reference (by anonymizing the IP address).

In the event that a user no longer wishes to use cookies, he or she can refuse the setting of cookies in the browser settings. However, this may lead to restrictions or reduced performance of individual services

Opt-Out

As an alternative to the browser’s default settings, you can reject cookies that are not required, such as those used for traffic analysis, by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie will then be set on your device, preventing further data collection.

Google Analytics

UnitedAds uses the Google Analytics analysis service from Google. In doing so, Google accesses the cookies of the users and uses them to analyze the use of the website. The cookie data is also regularly transferred to the USA and stored on Google’s own servers. This website has activated the function to anonymize IP addresses, whereby the IP address is shortened before transmission. Google uses this information for the detailed evaluation of the use of this website.

To ensure the required level of protection, Google is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. In addition, UnitedAds has entered into corresponding agreements with Google to ensure an appropriate level of data protection. UnitedAds does not perform user profiling and therefore the IP address stored by means of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google products or services.

Opt-Out

To prevent the collection and processing of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website by Google, you can simply download and install a browser add-on at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Google Ads

This website uses the „Google AdWords Conversion Tracking“ function of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States („Google“). Google AdWords Conversion Tracking uses so-called „cookies“, text files that are stored on your computer and allow an analysis of your use of the website when you have clicked on a Google ad. The cookies are valid for a maximum of 90 days. Personal data is not stored in the process. As long as the cookie is valid, Google and we as the website operator can recognize that you have clicked on an ad and have reached a certain target page (e.g. order confirmation page, newsletter registration). These cookies cannot be tracked across multiple websites by different AdWords participants. Through the cookie, conversion statistics are created in „Google AdWords“. In these statistics, the number of users who clicked on one of our ads is recorded. In addition, it is counted how many users have reached a target page that has been tagged with a „conversion tag“. However, the statistics do not contain any data with which you can be identified.

You can prevent cookies from being stored on your hard drive by selecting „Do not accept cookies“ in your browser settings (in MS Internet Explorer under „Tools > Internet Options > Privacy > Setting“; in Firefox under „Tools > Settings > Privacy > Cookies“); however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above. For more information on how Google uses conversion data and Google’s privacy policy, please visit: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/93148?ctx=tltp, http://www.google.de/policies/privacy/

Live Chat

This website uses live chat software. Live Chat uses Cockies to provide you with real-time communication. Data provided in this process is not used to personally identify the visitor. Also, no personal data is shared with third parties.

Data transmission and transfer

UnitedAds has a strong interest in protecting all data (especially personal data) from unauthorized access and processing it in accordance with legal requirements. In addition to its own infrastructure and systems, UnitedAds also uses various software providers and tools (e.g. Google, Stripe, PayPal) that enable secure and collaborative processing of data.

Data may also be stored or processed outside the territory of the European Union, in particular in the United States, and UnitedAds ensures that all third-party providers have adequate safeguards in place to ensure the required level of data protection. Most major and international software providers (such as Google and others) are certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. Compliance with the requirements of the EU-US Privacy Shield corresponds to the level of data protection in the European Union that permits data transfers to these companies.

UnitedAds has concluded corresponding data processing agreements with all processors without self-certification in accordance with Art. 28 (3) GDPR.

Data processing agreement

Data processing contracts must be concluded if personal data is processed by a third party (processor) on behalf of the controller. The processor thereby guarantees compliance with the applicable data protection provisions. The order processor may only process personal data within the framework, scope and purpose specified in the agreement. In these cases, UnitedAds remains responsible for the processing activities and the protection of the rights of the data subjects.

UnitedAds has concluded a contract with all processors and therefore works exclusively with such processors and partners who provide sufficient guarantees that appropriate technical and organizational measures will ensure that the processing is carried out in compliance with data protection and thus the required level of protection is guaranteed.

Data protection measures

In order to adequately protect personal data, UnitedAds has taken appropriate technical and organizational measures. These measures ensure that personal data is not used, processed, copied, modified, deleted or published or used without authorization.

Various measures have been taken, such as the definition of a company-wide and cross-divisional rights and deletion concept, control and monitoring of access to data, extensive backup and restore options. Additional security is provided by comprehensive anti-virus programs and firewalls. These measures ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the systems and data. In addition, organizational measures such as training and extended confidentiality agreements for UnitedAds employees, the dual control principle, and newly developed processes have been taken to ensure a risk-adequate level of protection.

Rights of the data subjects

Persons affected by the data processing are entitled to the information rights of UnitedAds. Such requests should be sent to the contact details below and will be processed and answered by UnitedAds without delay, but no later than 30 days. However, these rights shall be available to the data subject without restriction if excessive use is made of these rights (e.g. through frequent requests). UnitedAds reserves the right to charge the associated processing costs at no additional cost. The data subject will be informed of this separately if necessary.

The data subject has a right to

Information: The data subject may request information about which personal data about him or her is stored or processed by UnitedAds.
Deletion: The data subject may request the deletion of his/her personal data. UnitedAds will comply with this request if the legal basis for the data processing no longer applies and there are no other legal grounds (e.g. statutory retention obligations, legitimate interests) to the contrary.
Correction: If personal data is incomplete or incorrect, the data subject may request that this data be corrected.
Data portability: The data subject may request the transfer of his/her personal data to a third party in a structured, machine-readable format.
Objection to data processing: if personal data are processed for legitimate interest, the data subject may object to such processing. The controller must then examine and demonstrate whether its legitimate interest in processing outweighs the data subject’s interest in confidentiality.
Revocation of consent given: Upon receipt of a revocation, unitedAds will immediately cease processing all personal data concerned, provided that this is based exclusively on consent and that no other legal basis exists.

The data subject shall make all requests in writing.
