2. collection and storage of data when visiting our website

When you access our website, the browser used on your terminal device automatically sends information to the server of our website. This information is temporarily stored in so-called server log files. The following information is collected:

– Name and URL of the website visited
– Referrer URL
– Date and time of access
– IP address
– Web browser and the operating system used on your terminal device
– domain name

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO. This data does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person. We do not combine this data with personal data. However, we reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of specific indications of unlawful use.

The collection of this data is absolutely necessary to ensure a smooth connection of the website as well as the comfortable use, delivery and presentation of the contents of our website. We also use this data for the evaluation of system security and stability as well as for statistical p

3. personal data, use and transmission to third parties

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes in particular the name, address, e-mail address, telephone number and gender.

We only collect, process and use your personal data if you consent to the data collection, processing and use or if there is another legal basis in accordance with the GDPR.

We use the data you provide to process the contract and your enquiries, to send you information, advertising material and invitations to our events if you have given your consent, and to receive our newsletter if you have given your separate consent. Your data will not be used for any other purposes. An exception to this is the use for statistical purposes, provided that the data made available to us is anonymised.

Your data will only be passed on to third parties if there is a legal obligation to do so, if this is necessary for the processing of the contract (e.g. to the transport company commissioned with the delivery and to the credit company commissioned with the processing of payments) or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims, provided that this is necessary and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in not having your data passed on. Your data will only be forwarded on the basis of the DSGVO. Some third parties that are necessary for the processing of the contract are based outside the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany or process your personal data outside this territory. The level of protection in other countries may not correspond to that of Germany. However, we only transfer your personal data to countries for which the EU Commission has decided that they have an adequate level of data protection or we take measures to ensure that all recipients have an adequate level of data protection, for which we conclude standard contractual clauses.

4. duration of data storage and deletion

We will not store data for the purpose of processing contracts for longer than is necessary to fulfil our contractual or legal obligations and to defend against liability claims. We will only store personal data that you have provided to us for the purpose of receiving our newsletter, information and advertising material or for invitations to our events until you revoke your consent for this use of your data. If the purpose of storage no longer applies or if a legally prescribed storage period expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted.

5. data security

Your personal data is protected by appropriate organisational and technical precautions to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed.

6. cookies

Our website uses cookies to make our services more user-friendly, effective and secure. A cookie is a small text file that we transfer via our web server to the cookie file of the browser on the hard drive of your computer. Cookies do not cause any damage to your end device, do not contain viruses, Trojans or other malware. This enables our website to recognise you as a user when a connection is established between our web server and your browser. Cookies help us to determine the frequency of use and the number of users of our web pages. The content of the cookies we use is limited to an identification number that does not allow any personal reference to the user. The main purpose of a cookie is the (re)recognition of visitors to the website.

Session cookies are used on our website to optimise user-friendliness. These are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave our website and are automatically deleted at the end of your visit.

Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser in such a way that you are informed about the setting of cookies and decide individually about their acceptance or exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally as well as delete cookies that have already been set. If you deactivate cookies, however, the functionality of our website may be limited.

Cookies may have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed.

7. social media-plugins

7.1 Facebook

Social plugins from Facebook are used on our website. This is an offer from Facebook. The integrations can be recognised by the Facebook logo or the terms “Like”, “Like” and “Share”.

When you call up a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser, which then integrates it into the website. Through this integration, Facebook receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not currently logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a Facebook server and stored there. We have no influence on the nature and extent of the data that the plugin transmits to the servers of Facebook Inc.

If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can directly assign your visit to our website to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the “Like” or “Share” button or posting a comment, this information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on your Facebook profile and displayed to your Facebook friends.

Facebook may use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and the needs-based design of Facebook pages. For this purpose, Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles, e.g. to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the advertisements displayed to you on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide other services associated with the use of Facebook.

If you do not want Facebook to assign the data collected via our website to your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. For the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to Facebook’s privacy policy at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

8 google maps

Our site uses Google Maps API. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google collects, processes and uses data on the use of the map function when using Google Maps. More information on the handling of user data can be found in Google’s privacy policy: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/. There you can also adjust your personal settings in the data protection centre. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transmission.

Google Maps is used in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers and to make it easy to find the places we indicate on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

9. newsletter and Contact form

If you have registered for our newsletter, we will use your e-mail address to send you our newsletter on a regular basis. This data will not be passed on to third parties. A valid e-mail address is required to receive the newsletter. The date on which you subscribed to the newsletter is also stored. We work with the double opt-in procedure.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of data for the receipt of our newsletter at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter. For the revocation, you can use the link attached in each newsletter or inform us of your wish to unsubscribe by e-mail to datenschutz@herold.at.

For questions of any kind, you have the option of contacting us via a contact form provided on the website or by e-mail. In doing so, you are required to provide a valid e-mail address, your name and, if applicable, the company name as well as your telephone number so that we know who the enquiry is from, for any queries and in order to be able to answer your enquiry. The data you provide will be stored by us for six months for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent. If you fill out the contact form, HEROLD Medien Data GmbH will receive access to your data as a processor. The data processing for the purpose of contacting us is carried out according to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO on the basis of your voluntarily given consent.

10. google webfonts

In order to display the content of our website correctly and in a graphically appealing manner across all browsers, we use Google Web Fonts (script libraries) from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). The required web fonts are loaded into your browser cache when you call up a page in order to display texts and fonts correctly. If your browser does not support Google web fonts or prevents access, content is displayed in a standard font. By integrating the web fonts, a connection to the library’s server is established. In the process, data (website visited, IP address) is transmitted to and stored by Google. Further information on Google Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s privacy policy at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

11. Your rights as a data subject

If you wish to exercise one or more of the rights listed below, you can contact one of our employees at any time.

11.1 Right of access (Art. 15 GDPR)

You have the right to obtain from us, at any time and free of charge, information about the personal data stored about you and a copy of this information. You also have the right to information about the purposes of processing, the categories of personal data, the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular in the case of recipients in third countries or international organisations, if possible the planned storage period or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining this period, the existence of a right to rectification or erasure of the personal data concerning you or to restriction of processing by the controller or a right to object to such processing, the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority if the personal data are not collected from the data subject, any available information about the origin of the data, the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, and – at least in these cases – meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject. In addition, as a data subject, you have the right to be informed whether personal data have been transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. If this is the case, you have the right to obtain information about the appropriate safeguards in connection with the transfer.

11.2 Right of rectification (Art. 16 GDPR))

You have the right to request that inaccurate personal data concerning you be rectified without delay. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, you may request the completion of incomplete personal data.

11.3 Right to erasure (right to be forgotten) (Art. 17 and 19 GDPR)

You have the right to request that we erase personal data concerning you without delay, provided that one of the following reasons applies and to the extent that the processing is not necessary for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims:

– The personal data have been collected or otherwise processed for such purposes for which they are no longer necessary.

– You withdraw your consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) DSGVO or Art. 9(2)(a) DSGVO and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

– You object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21(1) DSGVO and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21(2) DSGVO.

– The personal data have been processed unlawfully.

– The erasure of the personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which we are subject.

– The personal data has been collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Article 8(1) of the GDPR.

If the personal data have been made public by us and our company as controller is obliged to erase the personal data pursuant to Article 17(1) DSGVO, we shall take reasonable measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the cost of implementation, to inform other data controllers which process the personal data published that you have requested the erasure of such personal data, unless the processing is necessary. Our data protection officer or another member of our staff will arrange the necessary.


11.4 Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 DSGVO)

You have the right to demand that we restrict processing insofar as you dispute the accuracy of the personal data, the processing is unlawful, but you object to the erasure of the personal data and we no longer require the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DSGVO.

11.5 Right to data portability (Art. 20 DSGVO)

You have the right to obtain the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format or to request that it be transferred to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible and insofar as this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.

11.6 Right of objection (Art. 21 DSGVO)

You have the right to object to the processing of personal data concerning you at any time on grounds relating to your particular situation. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions. We will no longer process the personal data in the event of an objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. If we process personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such marketing. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to direct advertising. If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes. In addition, you have the right to object on grounds relating to your particular situation to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out by us for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) DSGVO, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.

11.7 Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling (Art. 22 DSGVO)

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, unless the decision (i) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between us, or (ii) is authorised by Union or Member State law to which we are subject and that law contains adequate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (iii) is based on your explicit consent.

Where the decision is either necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and us or is made with your express consent, we will take reasonable steps to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of one of our persons, to express your point of view and to contest the decision.

11.8 Right to revoke consent under data protection law (Art. 7 (3) DSGVO)

You have the right to revoke your consent at any time. This has the consequence that we may not continue the data processing, which was based on this consent, for the future. An informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

11.9 Right of appeal (Art. 77 GDPR)

You have the right to complain to a supervisory authority. As a rule, you can contact the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence or workplace or our registered office for this purpose:
Bavarian State Office for Data Protection Supervision, Postfach 606, 91511 Ansbach.

12. up-to-dateness and amendment of the privacy policy

This data protection declaration is currently valid and was updated in May 2018. We reserve the right to change this data protection declaration as a result of the further development of our website and offers on it or due to changes in official or legal requirements.

13. Use of reCAPTCHA

To protect input forms on our site, we use the “reCAPTCHA” service from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter “Google”. By using this service, it can be distinguished whether the corresponding input is of human origin or whether it has been misused by automated machine processing.

To our knowledge, the referrer URL, the IP address, the behavior of the website visitors, information about the operating system, browser and length of stay, cookies, display instructions and scripts, the user’s input behavior and mouse movements in the “reCAPTCHA” checkbox area are sent to “Google ” transfer.

Google uses the information obtained in this way, among other things, to digitize books and other printed matter and to optimize services such as Google Street View and Google Maps (e.g. house number and street name recognition).

The IP address transmitted as part of “reCAPTCHA” will not be merged with other Google data unless you are logged into your Google account at the time you use the “reCAPTCHA” plug-in.

If you want to prevent this transmission and storage of data about you and your behavior on our website by “Google”, you must log out of “Google” before you visit our site or use the reCAPTCHA plug-in.

The use of the “reCAPTCHA” service takes place according to the Google Terms of Use:
