3. Processing of Personal Data

 The concept of personal data covers any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereafter: ‘data subject’). Identifiable is a natural person who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by association with an identifier such as a name, identification number, location data, online identifier or one or more specific characteristics that are an expression of the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person. This includes data that can be used to determine your identity, such as: your name, address, e-mail address or IP address. On the other hand, data that cannot be used to determine your identity, such as the browser you use, is not classified as personal data.

 

wobra GmbH collects, processes, and uses your personal data only if this is permitted by legal regulations or ordered by legislation. wobra GmbH will treat your personal data in accordance with data protection regulations.

8. Newsletter

 

In the following, we inform about the contents of our newsletter, about registration, distribution and statistical evaluation connected to the subscription as well as about your legal right to object. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to be recipient of the newsletter and agree to the process being described here.

 

1. Content of the Newsletter

We send newsletters, e-mails, and other electronic notifications with advertising information (hereafter “newsletter”) only with the consent of the recipients or a legal permission. If the contents of the newsletter are described in detail during the subscription process, then those are decisive for the consent of the user.

 

2. Double Opt-In and Storage

The registration for our newsletter follows a so-called double opt-in procedure. This means you will receive an e-mail after registration asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can login with a foreign e-mail address. The registrations for the newsletter are stored to prove that the registration was concluded in accordance with legal requirements. This includes the storage of the login and confirmation time, as well as the IP address. Changes to your data stored by MailChimp are also logged.

 

3. Use of the distribution service MailChimp

The newsletters are sent via MailChimp, a newsletter delivery platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.

The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described in this privacy policy, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletters on our behalf. Furthermore, according to its own information, MailChimp may use this data to optimise or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimisation of distribution and design of the newsletters or for economic purposes, in order to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them themselves or to pass it on to third parties. We rely on MailChimp’s reliability, IT and data security. MailChimp is certified under the US-EU Data Protection Agreement “Privacy Shield” and is thus committed to complying with EU data protection requirements. We have also concluded a “Data Processing Agreement” with MailChimp. This is a contract in which MailChimp ensures the protection of our users’ data, to process it in accordance with data protection regulations on our behalf and in particular not to pass it on to third parties. MailChimp’s privacy policy can be viewed here.

 

4. Statistics and Analysis

The newsletters contain a so-called “web beacon”, a pixel-sized file, which the MailChimp server receives when the newsletter is opened. Technical information, such as information about the browser and operating system, IP address, and time of access are collected first. This information is used to improve the service on the basis of technical data or target groups and their reading preferences based on the location and time (which can be determined from the IP address) at which they access the newsletter. Statistical surveys also include whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened, and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipient. However, it is neither our intention, nor that of MailChimp, to observe individual users. The evaluation serves to recognize the users’ reading habits and to adapt our content or to send different content in accordance with the interests of our users.

 

5. Online Access and Data Management

Sometimes we direct newsletter recipients to MailChimp’s websites. For example, our newsletters contain a link with which newsletter recipients can access the newsletter online (e.g. if the e-mail program you use does not show the content correctly). Furthermore, newsletter recipients can correct or change their data, such as e-mail addresses, retrospectively. MailChimp’s privacy policy is available on its website. In this context, we point out that the website of MailChimp and its partners and service providers (e.g. Google Analytics) use cookies and collect personal data. We have no influence on this data collection. For more information, see MailChimp’s privacy policy. We would also like to draw your attention to the possibility of objecting to the data collection for advertising purposes on the following website: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/

 

6. Cancellation/Revocation

You can cancel your subscription to our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. By revoking your consent, the data transfer to MailChimp and to statistical analysis expires at the same time. A separate revocation of consent to either the service provided by MailChimp or the statistical evaluation is unfortunately not possible. A link to cancel the newsletter can be found at the end of each newsletter.

 

7. Legal Basis and General Data Protection Regulation

In accordance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR from 25 May 2018) we inform you that consents are given to the dispatch of e-mail addresses on the basis of Article 6(1) point (a), 7 GDPR as well as Article 7 (2) No. 3, or Article 3 UWG. The use of the mail service provider MailChimp, the carrying out of the statistical surveys and analyses as well as the logging of the registration procedure, are carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests in accordance with Article6(1) point (f) GDPR. Our interest is focused on providing a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves both our business interests and meets the expectations of our users.

We would also like to point out that you can object to the processing of your personal data in accordance with the legal requirements of Article 21 GDPR at any time. The objection may be lodged especially against the processing for direct marketing purposes.

10. Social Media

 

1. We link third-party services on the »Finde das Leben« website. We do not use plug-ins.

 

 

Instagram: This website is linked on Instagram. Instagram is an audio-visual platform that allows users to share photos and videos and to share such data on other social networks.
Instagram’s services are operated by Instagram LLC, 1 Hacker Way, Building 14 First Floor, Menlo Park, CA, USA.
Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed on which an Instagram component (Insta button) has been integrated, the internet browser on the data subject’s information technology system is automatically prompted by the respective Instagram component to download a representation of the corresponding Instagram component. As part of this technical process, Instagram is informed about which specific subpage of our website is visited.

If the data subject is logged in to Instagram at the same time, Instagram recognizes which specific subpage is visited each time the person visits our website and for the entire duration of that person’s stay on our website. This information is collected and assigned by Instagram to the respective Instagram account of the data subject. When clicking on one of the Instagram buttons integrated on our website, the data and information transferred is assigned to the personal Instagram account of the data subject and stored and processed by Instagram.

Instagram always receives information through the Instagram component about the visit to our website when the data subject is logged into Instagram at the same time as accessing our website, regardless of whether the person clicks on the Instagram component or not. If the data subject does not want Instagram to receive such information, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her Instagram account before accessing our website.

For further information and to review Instagram’s current privacy policies, please visit https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388  and https://www.instagram.com/about/legal/privacy/

 

 

Spotify: On the website »Finde das Leben« we link to Spotify.

The platform is provided by Spotify AB Regeringsgatan 19, Stockholm, 111 53, Sweden.

When you visit a page with an integrated Spotify plugin, you connect to Spotify’s servers. Spotify gathers information about which of our pages you have accessed. Spotify will know your IP address even if you are not logged in to Spotify or do not have an account there. Details on how Spotify handles user data can be found in Spotify’s privacy policy at: https://www.spotify.com/de/legal/privacy-policy-update/

Spotify can directly connect your browsing behaviour with your personal profile. By logging out in advance, you have the option to prevent this.

 

 

Apple Music: On the website »Finde das Leben« we link to Apple Music.
Apple Music is designed to protect your information and enable you to choose what you share.

 

  • Apple collects information about your Apple Music activity, such as the songs you play and how long you play them, to personalise the service when you are subscribed and to compensate their partners.
  • Sync Library sends information from your music library to Apple, such as song and artist names, to identify and unlock copies of any of your songs that are also available in Apple Music.
    Apple associates your Sync Library information with you for as long as you remain subscribed and for a short time after. We retain records of the songs you play for the periods specified by applicable laws relating to financial reporting.
  • To help identify and prevent fraud, information about how you use your device, including the approximate number of phone calls or emails you send and receive, will be used to compute a device trust score when you attempt a purchase. The submissions are designed so Apple cannot learn the real values on your device. The scores are stored for a fixed time on their servers.
  • Protecting the privacy and security of your information is a priority for everyone at Apple. They work hard to collect only the data we need to make your experience better, and when we do collect data, we believe it’s important for you to know what we’re collecting and why we need it, so you can make informed choices. Apple Music, like every Apple product, is designed with these principles in mind.

 

Apple collects information about how you use Apple Music in order to tailor features to your musical tastes. These features include For You – where you see albums and playlists picked for you, Radio – which plays selections from your favourite artists and genres, and Connect – which can recommend new artists to follow or posts you’ll find interesting. They also use this information so that we can contact you about upcoming releases, new artists and other happenings on Apple Music that you may like.

If you want to connect or share with other people using Apple Music, you can create a personal profile by providing a user handle (for example, @johnappleseed), display name, and, if desired, a profile photo and other information. Apple stores this information with your account so that you can access it from any of your devices. Your user handle, display name and profile photo can appear alongside any content you post and activity that you share on Apple Music. Sharing and posting content are not currently intended for or available to Apple IDs for children.

Other people may also be able to find your Apple Music profile using the information that you’ve provided.

You can make the contents of your profile, like listening activity and playlists, available only to those you choose. However, your profile information, such as handle, display name, photo, your followers and who you are following, are always visible to everyone.

When you create a profile on Apple Music, they will recommend other Apple Music subscribers with whom you may want to connect as friends. Apple does not learn or store information from your contacts when checking for friends to recommend. Only shortened and encrypted hashes of the phone numbers and email addresses in your contacts are sent to Apple and then matching Apple Music subscribers to be recommended are determined locally on your device. Apple Music can periodically check your contacts to recommend new friends in the future; you can control this in Account Settings by disabling ‘Contacts on Apple Music’. If you do not want to be found by others based on the Apple ID contact information they may have about you in their contacts, you can change this in Account Settings by disabling ‘Allow Finding by Apple ID’.

You can also find more people to connect with on Apple Music, and be found by others, by connecting your accounts from social networks such as Facebook. When you do this, Apple Music will link your Apple Music account to your social network account and find friends on that social network who are also Apple Music subscribers. We do not retain any information about friends who are not Apple Music subscribers. If you later want to disconnect these social networks from your Apple Music account, you can do so in the settings for those connected social networks.

Information that you provide in your profile may be updated or removed by you at any time. Whenever you share online, you should think carefully about what you are making public. When you share from Apple Music to other websites or social networks, anything you share is governed by the privacy policies of those other services.

If your network operator offers Apple Music memberships, Apple may check your phone number to determine if you joined through a partner operator. If you signed up through your operator, your phone number is used to identify your account and to let the operator know that you have activated your membership. We will use the phone number associated with your membership only to verify your account at sign-in and to connect your Apple Music activity with your account.

Sync Library, which is a benefit of your Apple Music membership, allows you to have access to the songs and playlists in your library from any of your devices. This feature sends information from your music library to Apple, such as song and artist names, in order to identify and unlock copies of any of your songs that are also available in Apple Music. Any songs that can’t be found in Apple Music are uploaded to your personal Sync Library, so that you can have access to your complete collection from any of your devices. You can turn off Sync Library in Settings on your device or in Apple Music.

When you use Apple Music, we collect information about the songs and videos you play or add to your music library or playlists, and the content you love, comment or share. Information such as the account, IP address, and device, app, or car interface you used to play, where in Apple Music you were when you played it, the time you played it, and for how long, is noted and sent to Apple. We use this information to customise your Apple Music experience and to help us understand how Apple Music is being used so we may improve it. For example, this information can help us pick the music, videos and artist posts that we show you in For You, Radio and Connect. It also allows us to make other recommendations to you that reflect your tastes, pay royalties and prevent or take action against activities that are, or may be, in breach of the Apple Media Services Terms and Conditions or applicable law. You can change your e-mail preferences and opt in or out of receiving e-mails on appleid.apple.com.

We also compute a device trust score on your device when you attempt a purchase using information about how you use your device, including the approximate number of phone calls or e-mails you send and receive. The submission is designed so Apple cannot learn the underlying values on your device. The score is stored for a fixed time on our servers.
We may collect, use, transfer and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. For example, we may aggregate your non-personal information with that of other Apple Music users in order to improve the service.
All of this information is collected and used in accordance with our privacy policy which can be found at www.apple.com/uk/privacy.

 

Disclosure to third parties

When you use Apple Music to listen to broadcast radio, your device connects directly to the broadcast radio station to provide you with the requested content. When it connects, your device’s IP address will be visible to the broadcast radio station. The handling of your IP address by the broadcast radio station is governed by the privacy policies of the broadcast radio station or its provider.

We are obligated to provide some non-personal information about your use of Apple Music, including Apple Music’s broadcast radio offerings, to strategic partners associated with this service, such as record labels, so that they can measure the performance of their creative work, meet royalty and accounting requirements and improve their products and services. We also provide aggregated non-personal statistics about listening activity and user demographics, such as age and gender, to artists so that they may better understand their audiences. Additionally, we may make available certain personal information, like your network operator, to partners that work with Apple to provide our products and services or that help Apple market to customers.

iOS and iPadOS apps may request access to Apple Music and your Media Library. If you give such permission to an app, it can access information like your media library on your device, whether you are an Apple Music subscriber, your music and video play activity and your For You recommendations. A permitted app can also modify data associated with your account, such as which songs are in your library and playlists. You can disable an app’s access on your iOS or iPadOS device by going to Settings > Privacy > Media & Apple Music. If you have removed the app or granted an app access using a version of iOS prior to iOS 11 or iPadOS, you can disable its access in your Apple Music account settings.

Our online service uses the so-called “Facebook Pixel” of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or if you are resident in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”).

With the Facebook Pixel, Facebook identifies you as a visitor to our website and as part of a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called Facebook Ads). Accordingly, we use Facebook Pixel to display Facebook Ads only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our website or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined by the websites visited). This information we transmit to Facebook (so-called Custom Audiences). With the help of Facebook Pixel, we also want to ensure that ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and do not have a harassing effect. With the help of Facebook Pixel, we can further understand the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing if users have been redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called conversion).

 

Facebook’s Privacy Policy
The processing of the data by Facebook takes place within the framework of Facebook’s data policy. Accordingly, general notes on the presentation of Facebook ads can be found in the data usage policy of Facebook. For specific information and details about Facebook Pixel and how it works, see the Facebook Help section.

EU-US Privacy Shield
Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law.

Legal Basis
Legal basis for the use of Facebook Pixel as well as the storage of Conversion Cookies is based on Article6(1) point (f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in analysing user activities to optimise both our website and our ads.

Data processing contract
For the processing of data, in which Facebook acts as a data processor, we have concluded a data processing contract with Facebook in which we oblige Facebook to protect the data of our customers and not to pass it on to third parties.

Objection
Although we have legitimate interests in using Facebook Pixel and Conversion Cookies, we offer you opt-out options. You can object to the collection of your data by Facebook Pixel and the usage of your data to display Facebook ads. To set what types of ads you see within Facebook, you can go to Facebook and follow the usage-based advertising settings. The settings are platform-independent, i.e. they are applied to all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices. You can also object to the use of cookies for range measurement and advertising purposes via the deactivation page of the network advertising initiative and additionally the US website aboutads.info or the European website youronlinechoices.com. Another opt-out option can be found in our cookie statement.

In addition, you have the right to be informed whether a transfer of personal data to a third country or international organisation is taking place. If this is the case, you have the legal rights according to Article 46 GPDR to be informed about appropriate or suitable safeguards and the means by which to obtain a copy of them or information about where they have been made available.

 

 

II. Right to Rectification

 

You have the right to obtain from Wobra GmbH as controller without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning you. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject shall have the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.

 

 

III. Right to Erasure (Right to Be Forgotten)

 

a) You also have the legal right to demand that Wobra GmbH, as controller, erase your personal data immediately. Wobra GmbH, as controller, is obliged to immediately delete personal data concerning you, provided that one of the following reasons applies:

 

(1) The personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.

 

(2) You revoke your consent, on which the processing was based in accordance with Article 6(1) point (a) or Article 9(2) point (a) GDPR, and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

(4) The personal data concerning you have been processed unlawfully.

 

(5) The deletion of the personal data concerning you is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which Wobra GmbH is also subject to.

b) When Wobra GmbH, as controller, has made the personal data concerning you public and Wobra GmbH is obliged to delete it in accordance with Article 17(1) GDPR, it shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, in order to inform data controllers who process the personal data that you, as data subject, have demanded their erasure and thus all links to such data or requested personal data must be deleted

 

c) The right to erasure does not exist if the processing is necessary

 

(1) to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information;

 

(2) to fulfil a legal obligation required by the law of the European Union or the Member States to which the controller is subject, or to carry out a task which is in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority delegated to the controller;

(5) to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

 

 

IV. Right to Restrict Processing

 

You have the right to require Wobra GmbH to restrict processing under the following conditions:

 

(1) the accuracy of the personal data concerning you has been disputed by you for a period that enables Wobra GmbH, as controller, to verify the accuracy of the personal data;

 

(2) the processing is unlawful, and you object to the erasure of your personal data and require instead the restriction of the use of your personal data;

 

(3) Wobra GmbH no longer needs the personal data as controller for the purposes of the processing, but you need them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims;

 

(4) You have objected to the processing in accordance with Article 21 (1) GDPR, but it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of Wobra GmbH as controller outweigh your reasons. If the processing of the personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data may be processed, except for its storage, only with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
A data subject who has obtained restriction of processing shall be informed by wobra GmbH as the controller before the restriction of processing is lifted.

 

 

V. Notification Obligation

 

Wobra GmbH shall communicate any rectification or erasure of personal data or restriction of processing to each recipient to whom the personal data have been disclosed unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort. Wobra GmbH shall inform you about those recipients if at your request.

 

 

VI. Right to Data Portability

 

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to a Wobra GmbH, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from Wobra GmbH to which the personal data have been provided, where:

 

(1) the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) or point (a) of Article 9(2) or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1); and

 

(2) the processing is carried out by automated means.

 

In exercising your right to data portability pursuant to paragraph 1, you have the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible. This right shall not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
The right to data portability shall not apply to processing necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in Wobra GmbH.

 

 

VII. Right of Objection

 

You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning you which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1), including profiling based on those provisions.

 

Wobra GmbH shall no longer process the personal data unless we as the controller demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

 

Where personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.

 

Where you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data shall no longer be processed for such purposes.

 

In the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you may exercise your right to object by automated means using technical specifications.

 

 

VIII. Right to Revoke the Declaration of Consent Under Data Protection Law

 

You also have the right to revoke your consent to the processing of personal data at any time. In the event of such revocation, the legality of the data processing carried out up to the time of revocation shall not be affected.

 

IX. Automated Individual Decision Making, Including Profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you.

This does not apply if the decision:

 

(1) is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between the you and Wobra GmbH as controller;

 

(2) is authorised by European Union or Member State law to which Wobra GmbH is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests; or

 

(3) is based on your explicit consent.

 

These decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data referred to in Article 9(1), unless point (a) or (g) of Article 9(2) applies and suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests are in place.

 

X. Right to Lodge a Complaint with a Supervisory Authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes GDPR.

 

The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged shall inform you on the progress and the outcome of the complaint including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Article 78.

 

 

16. Data security

 

Wobra GmbH takes technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data against loss, manipulation or unauthorized access by third parties. The technical procedures used in this process are further developed in line with technological progress and continuously adapted to the state of the art.

 

Your personal data will be transmitted encrypted. This applies when you contact us via the contact form. Wobra GmbH uses the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encoding system. However, we would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet, as in the case of communication via e-mail, may have security gaps. Further, we would like to point out that full, absolute protection cannot be guaranteed.

 

 

17. Transfer of Data to Third Parties & No Data Transfer to Non-EU Countries

 

The personal data collected, stored, and used by Wobra GmbH will not be passed on to third parties.

 

If and to the extent that we have a binding legal contract with third parties, these will receive personal data to the extent that the contract can be fulfilled.

 

In case personal data is processed by third parties on behalf of Wobra GmbH (commissioned data processing), we ensure that the processor meets the requirements of data protection regulations and your rights as a data subject.

 

A transfer of personal data to third parties outside the EU does not take place except in the cases mentioned in this Privacy Policy.
