DATA PROTECTION DECLARATION
1. Information on the processing of personal data
We are pleased to welcome you to our website and grateful for your interest. In the following document, we will inform you about the handling of your personal data when using our services (app and website). Personal data is any data that can be used to identify you personally.
The data controller for the use of our services within the context of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is Tapster Media GmbH, Neuer Wall, 20354 Hamburg, Germany, Tel.:040 3496167-27, E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. The responsible party has appointed a data protection officer: ECOVIS Grieger Mallison Rechtsanwälte PartG mbB | Rechtsanwalt Axel Keller / Senior Associate Karsten Neumann | Am Campus 1 – 11, 18182 Rostock-Bentwisch | Tel.:0381 – 649 210 eMail: email@example.com | www.ecovis.com/datenschutzberater
The respective provider is responsible for the use of your registration and usage data on the APP download platform. This provider is solely responsible for the processing of data in the registration and payment process.
Our services use SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of personal data and other confidential content (e.g. orders or enquiries to the person responsible). Encrypted connections are denoted by the string “https://” and the lock symbol in your browser line. If these are missing, please stop using the website immediately and inform us. These are probably so-called phising pages.
2. Data collection when using our services
During the mere informational use of our website, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us, we only collect data that your browser transmits to our server (so-called “server log files”). When you visit our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary in order for us to display the website to you:
-Our visited webpages
-Date and time at the point of access
-Quantity of data sent in bytes
-Source/reference used to access the page
-Operating system used
-IP address used (if applicable: in anonymised form)
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. The data is not passed on or used in any other way. However, we reserve the right to check the server log files retrospectively if there are concrete indications of illegal use.
- When using our APP:
To use the app, you have to register at www.livelystory.com/shop. The data required for the login is stored on the server of www.livelystory.com.
When logging into the lively story app, the login data are matched with those on the server and the user’s purchased books are retrieved.
No data is stored in the app.
In order to make visiting our website more attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on various pages. These are small text files that are stored on your device. Some of the cookies we use are deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e. after you close your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your end device and enable us or our partner companies (third-party cookies) to recognise your browser on your next visit (persistent cookies). If cookies are set, they collect and process certain user information such as browser and location data and IP address values to an individual extent. Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may differ depending on the cookie.
In part, the cookies serve to simplify the ordering process by storing settings (e.g. remembering the contents of a virtual shopping basket for a later visit to the website). If personal data is also processed by individual cookies implemented by us, the processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO either for the execution of the contract or in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO to protect our legitimate interests in the best possible functionality of the website as well as a customer-friendly and effective design of the page visit.
We may work with advertising partners who help us to make our website more interesting for you. For this purpose, cookies from partner companies are also stored on your hard drive when you visit our website (third-party cookies). If we cooperate with aforementioned advertising partners, you will be informed individually and separately about the use of such cookies and the scope of the information collected in each case within the following paragraphs.
For billing purposes, we track whether the user was redirected from one of our partner shops (e.g. Weltbild Online). This data is only used for internal billing purposes and is not passed on.
Please note that you can set your browser in such a way that you are informed about the setting of cookies and can decide individually whether to accept them or can exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general. Each browser differs in the way it manages cookie settings. This is described in the help menu of each browser, which explains how you can change your cookie settings. You can find these for the respective browsers under the following links:
-Internet Explorer: https://support.microsoft.com/de-de/help/17442/windows-internet-explorer-delete-manage-cookies
Personal data is collected when contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail). In the case of a contact form, the data collected is limited to the information requested in the respective contact form. This data is stored and used exclusively for the purpose of answering your request or for contacting you and the associated technical administration. The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If your contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO. Your data will be deleted after the final processing of your request; this is the case if it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter concerned has been conclusively clarified and provided that there are no statutory retention obligations to the contrary.
5. Data processing when opening a customer account and for contract processing
Pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DGSVO, personal data will continue to be collected and processed if you provide it to us for the performance of a contract or when opening a customer account. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. Deletion of your customer account is possible at any time and can be done by sending a message to the above address of the person responsible. We store and use the data provided by you for the purpose of processing the contract. After the completed processing of the contract or deletion of your customer account, your data will be blocked with regard to tax and commercial law retention periods and deleted after the expiry of these periods, unless you have expressly consented to a further use of your data or a legally-permitted further use of data has been reserved on our part, about which we inform you accordingly below.
6. Use of single sign-on procedures
On our website, you can log in to create a customer account or register using the social plugin “Google+ Sign-In” of the social network Google+ , which is operated by Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google+”), within the scope of the so-called single sign-on technology, if you have a Google+ profile. You can recognise the social plugins of “Google+ Sign-In” or “Register with Google” on our website by a red button with the Google+ logo and the inscription “Google Sign-In” or “Register with Google” or “Sign in with Google” or “Register with G”.
When you open a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Google+ servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Google+ directly to your browser and integrated into the page. Through this integration, Google+ receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Google+ profile or are not currently logged into Google+. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a Google+ server in the USA and stored there. These data processing operations are carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO on the basis of Google’s legitimate interest in displaying personalised advertising based on browsing behaviour.
By using this Google+ button on our website, you also have the option of logging in or registering on our website using your Google+ user data. Only if you give your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO prior to the registration process on the basis of a corresponding notice about the exchange of data with Google, will we receive the general and publicly accessible information stored in your profile when you use the Google+ button from Google+, depending on your personal data protection settings on Google+. This information includes the user ID, name, profile picture, age and gender.
The consent given can be revoked at any time by sending a message to the responsible person named at the beginning of this declaration.
If you do not want Google+ to directly assign the data collected via our website to your Google+ profile, you must log out of Google+ before visiting our website. You can also completely prevent the loading of Google+ plugins with add-ons for your browser, e.g. with “Adblock Plus” (https://adblockplus.org/de/).
The legal basis for the transfer of your data to the USA is Art. (1) a – if you consent to the transfer knowing the risks – Art. 49 (1) b and c – if the data processing is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract.
7. Use of your data for direct marketing
Subscribe to our newsletter
If you register for our e-mail newsletter, we will regularly send you information about our offers. Only your e-mail address is required for sending the newsletter. The provision of any other data is voluntary and will be used to address you personally. We use the so-called double opt-in procedure for sending the newsletter. This means that we will only send you an e-mail newsletter if you have expressly confirmed that you consent to the sending of newsletters. We will then send you a confirmation e-mail asking you to confirm that you wish to receive future newsletters by clicking on an appropriate link.
By activating the confirmation link, you give us your consent for the use of your personal data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. When you register for the newsletter, we store your IP address entered by your internet service provider (ISP) as well as the date and time of registration in order to be able to trace any possible misuse of your email address at a later date. The data collected by us when you register for the newsletter is used exclusively for the purpose of addressing you in an advertising manner by way of the newsletter. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time via the link provided for this purpose in the newsletter or by sending a corresponding message to the responsible person named at the beginning. After unsubscribing, your e-mail address will be deleted from our newsletter distribution list immediately, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use your data in a way that goes beyond this and is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this declaration.
- Sending the newsletter to existing customers
If you have provided us with your e-mail address when purchasing products, we reserve the right to regularly send you offers by e-mail for similar products to those you have already purchased from our range. In accordance with Section 7 (3) of the German Unfair Competition Act (UWG), we do not need to obtain your separate consent for this. In this respect, the data processing is carried out solely on the basis of our legitimate interest in personalised direct advertising in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If you have initially objected to the use of your email address for this purpose, we will not send you any emails. You are entitled to object to the use of your e-mail address for the aforementioned advertising purpose at any time with effect for the future by notifying the responsible person named at the beginning. This will only incur transmission costs for you according to the basic rates. After receipt of your objection, the use of your e-mail address for advertising purposes will cease immediately.
