Privacy Policy

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.

The processing of personal data, for example the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a person concerned, is always carried out in accordance with the Basic Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to back-for-good.de. By means of this privacy policy, our company wishes to inform the public about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration.

back-for-good.de, as the data controller, has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete possible protection of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can in principle have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone. Definitions of Terms

  • f) Pseudonymization

    Pseudonymisation means the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the provision of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures designed to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

  • g) Person responsible or person responsible for the processing

    If one of the above reasons applies and a person concerned wishes to have personal data stored at back-for-good.de deleted, he or she can contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee of back-for-good.de will arrange for the deletion request to be complied with immediately.

    If back-for-good.de has made the personal data public and our company, as the person responsible, is obliged to delete the personal data pursuant to Art. 17 Para. 1 DS-GVO, back-for-good.de will do so.de, taking into account the available technology and implementation costs, reasonable measures, including technical measures, to inform other data controllers who process the personal data disclosed, that the data subject has requested these other data controllers to delete all links to these personal data or copies or replications of these personal data, insofar as the processing is not necessary.

    • The data subject has lodged an objection against the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 DS-GVO and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the data controller outweigh those of the data subject.

    If one of the above conditions is met and a person concerned wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored at back-for-good.de, he or she can contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee of back-for-good.de will initiate the restriction of the processing.

  • f) Right to data transferability

    Any data subject involved in the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European directive and regulation, to obtain personal data concerning him or her which have been provided by the data subject to a controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. It shall also have the right to communicate such data to another controller without interference from the controller to whom the personal data have been provided, provided that the processing is based on the consent referred to in Article 6(1)(a) DS Block Exemption Regulation or Article 9(2)(a) DS Block Exemption Regulation or on a contract referred to in Article 6(1)(b) DS Block Exemption Regulation and that the processing is carried out by automated means, provided that the processing is not necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

Privacy policy for the use of Jetpack for WordPress

The data controller has integrated Jetpack into this website. Jetpack is a WordPress plug-in which offers additional functions to the operator of a website based on WordPress. Jetpack allows the website operator, among other things, an overview of the visitors to the site. The display of related articles and publications or the possibility to share content on the site can also increase the number of visitors. In addition, security features are built into Jetpack so that a web page using Jetpack is better protected against brute force attacks. Jetpack also optimizes and accelerates the loading of the images integrated on the website.

The operating company of the jetpack plug-in for WordPress is Automattic Inc. 132 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. The operating company uses the tracking technology of Quantcast Inc. 201 Third Street, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

Jetpack places a cookie on the data subject’s information technology system. What cookies are has already been explained above. Each time one of the individual pages of this Internet site is accessed, operated by the data controller and on which a Jetpack component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data subject’s information technology system is automatically prompted by the respective Jetpack component to transmit data to Automattic for analysis purposes. As part of this technical process, Automattic obtains knowledge of data that is subsequently used to create an overview of Internet site visits. The data thus obtained shall be used to analyse the behaviour of the data subject who has accessed the website of the data controller and shall be evaluated with a view to optimising the website. The data collected through the Jetpack component will not be used to identify the data subject without the prior express consent of the data subject. The data will also be made known to Quantcast. Quantcast uses the data for the same purposes as Automattic.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Automattic/Quantcast from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, cookies already set by Automattic can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the person concerned has the possibility to object to and prevent the collection of data generated by the Jetpack cookie and related to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Automattic/Quantcast. To do this, the person concerned must press the opt-out button under the link https://www.quantcast.com/opt-out/, which sets an opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie set with the objection is stored on the information technology system used by the person concerned. If the cookies on the system of the person concerned are deleted after an objection, the person concerned must call up the link again and set a new opt-out cookie.

With the setting of the opt-out cookie, however, it is possible that the Internet pages of the data controller may no longer be fully usable by the data subject.

Automattic’s current data protection regulations can be found at https://automattic.com/privacy/ . Quantcast’s applicable privacy policy is available at https://www.quantcast.com/privacy/

 

Data protection regulations for the use of Shariff

The data controller has integrated the Shariff component on this website. The Shariff component provides social media buttons that comply with data protection regulations. Shariff was developed for the German computer magazine c’t and is published by GitHub, Inc.

Developer of the component is GitHub, Inc. 88 Colin P. Kelly Junior Street, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA.

Usually, the button solutions provided by the social networks already transfer personal data to the respective social network when a user visits a website in which a social media button has been integrated. By using the Shariff component, personal data is only transmitted to social networks if the visitor to a website actively presses one of the social media buttons. Further information on the Shariff component can be found in the computer magazine c’t at http://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/Datenschutz-und-Social-Media-Der-c-t-Shariff-ist-im-Einsatz-2470103.html . The use of the Shariff component has the purpose of protecting the personal data of visitors to our website and at the same time enabling us to integrate a button solution for social networks on this website.

Further information and the valid data protection regulations of GitHub can be called up under https://help.github.com/articles/github-privacy-policy/

Use of Web Fonts

External fonts, Google Fonts, are used on these Internet pages. Google Fonts is a service of Google Inc. “(“Google”). The integration of these Web Fonts takes place by a server call, usually a server of Google in the USA. This will tell the server which of our Internet pages you have visited. The IP address of the browser of the terminal device of the visitor to these Internet pages is also stored by Google. For more information, please refer to Google’s privacy policy, which can be found here:
www.google.com/fonts#AboutPlace:about
www.google.com/policies/privacy/

The use of these web fonts is due to increased design and performance interest according to Article 6 1 f DSGVO.

Legal basis of the processing

Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations in 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 a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, such as in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our business was injured and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. 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 a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not predominate. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it 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 DS Block Exemption Regulation).

Any legitimate interest in the processing that is being pursued by the controller or a third party

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is the conduct of our business for the benefit of all our employees and shareholders.

Duration for which the personal data is stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After expiry of this period, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted unless they are no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.

Legal or contractual provisions governing the provision of personal data; necessary for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-availability

.
We will inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner).
Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a person concerned makes personal data available to us which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data when our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract could not be concluded with the data subject.
Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee informs the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of a contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what consequences the non-availability of the personal data would have.

Existence of automated decision making

As a responsible company, we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
