What is saved when you visit our website?

When you access our web pages, our web server temporarily records the domain names and/or IP addresses of the requesting computers, the file requests of the clients (file name and URL), the http response code and the website from which you are visiting us. From this data, which is stored in a technical log file (log file), it is not possible to trace which user has retrieved data. No other methods to identify users or to understand users’ access behaviour are used. Evaluation of the saved data is only carried out for statistical purposes without reference to individual persons.

Handling of personal data

Personal data such as your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address is only collected if you have voluntarily provided the relevant information on the web page in question. This applies to registrations for certain information services, newsletters, enquiries, surveys and more. The data collected in this way (master data) is used by us exclusively to provide the service being used or for the required purpose. Your data is used for the purpose of consulting, advertising and market research only with your consent. It is not passed on to third parties unless you have expressly consented to this or we are legally required to do so. You can revoke your consent at any time in writing or electronically for the future.

Duration of the storage of personal data

We save the data collected by us only for as long as is necessary and permissible for the respective agreed purpose and in compliance with the applicable law. Unless legal regulations require further processing (particularly the retention of data) or you have given your consent for us to do so, the data will be deleted at the end of the subsequent calendar year if the basis for the further saving of your master data no longer applies (for example following termination of an information service).

Data privacy information relating to the use of social media

1 General information

(1) We maintain publicly accessible profiles on various social networks (social media channels). Personal data (such as name, age, address, photos, e-mail addresses and IP addresses) is collected, used and stored when you visit and use these channels.

(2) The organisation responsible for this data processing (data controller) is always Tele Columbus AG, Kaiserin-Augusta-Allee 108, 10553 Berlin, Germany, telephone: +49 30/25 777 777, fax: +49 30/25 777 300, e-mail: kundenservice@pyur.com (“we”).

c/o Tele Columbus Group
Messe-Allee 2, 04356 Leipzig, Germany

(4) When you visit our social media channels, personal data is collected, used and stored by us and by the operators of the respective social network, even if you do not have a profile on the respective social network or are not a registered user.

(5) The individual data processing operations and the nature and extent of the data processed vary according to the operator of the social network. To a large extent, we are neither aware of these processes nor can we influence them. Any information we have about these processes comes from the respective operators themselves. The processing may change from time to time.

(6) The same applies to the transmission of this data to third parties. Special justification is required if the operator of the respective social network transfers personal data to countries outside the scope General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (third countries), in particular to the United States of America (US). The previously applicable EU-US Privacy Shield resolution adopted by the European Commission (Privacy Shield) was declared invalid by the European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruling of 16 July 2020. Since then, the transfer of data to the US can only be legally based on the agreement of standard contractual clauses (SCCs), which are currently being revised by the EU Commission.

(7) For the processing of data in the context of a Facebook fan page, the ECJ decided on 5 June 2018 that joint responsibility applies on the part of Facebook and the owner of the Facebook fan page according to Article 26 GDPR. Such joint responsibility with the operator of the respective social network may also exist with other networks.

(8) You are neither legally nor contractually obliged to provide us or the respective operators with your personal data. However, such data may be required for the use of specific functionalities or all functionalities of our social media channels.
