3. Explanations of the legal basis and period of storage

3.1. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

In the event that we asked for your consent for processing of your personal data Article 6 (1) sentence 1 a) GDPR is the legal basis for processing your personal data. You are entitled to withdraw any consent you have given at any time with effect for the future. 

Under Article 6 (1) sentence 1 b) GDPR, the processing of your personal data is legitimate if such processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with you or your company. This also applies to all processing operations which are relevant prior to entering into a contract.

Under Article 6 (1) sentence 1 c) GDPR, the processing of your personal data is legitimate if such processing is necessary for compliance with one of our legal obligations.

Under Article 6 (1) sentence 1 f) GDPR, the processing of your personal data is legitimate if such processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms.

3.2. Period of storage and erasure of data

Any personal data which we collect, process and store will be kept by us for as long as there is a specific purpose for such storage. Your data will be erased or their processing restricted as soon as the specific purpose for which they were stored no longer applies.

It is possible, however, that European regulations, applicable national laws or other rules may require us to store data which we have processed for a longer period of time. We will erase or restrict the processing of your data when these periods of storage have expired.

4.7. Right to object

You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you based on Article 6 (1) sentence 1 f) GDPR. picturemaxx may then no longer process the personal data relating to you unless picturemaxx demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

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 the GDPR.

6. Registration for "my-picturemaxx"

6.1. Processing by picturemaxx

In addition to downloading and installing, our "my-picturemaxx" software can only be used by registering using a form provided by us directly in "my-picturemaxx". When you register you will be required to provide certain mandatory data in addition to voluntary information; these types of data are identified separately. Such data includes but is not limited to

  • Your user name

  • Your name

  • Your address

  • Your country of origin or that of your company

  • Your e-mail address

  • Your password

 

We use, store, and process this data because this is necessary in order to establish, define the contents of, or amend the contractual relationship between you and picturemaxx as well as for claiming and settling the relevant services.

If we provide you with “my-picturemaxx” as part of a free of charge or paid test phase, we process the aforementioned data, as this is necessary for the accurate assignment of the test access and for the implementation of the established usage relationship. In addi-tion, we have a legitimate interest in promoting the sales of “my-picturemaxx” and in preventing repeated use of test phases instead of fee-based services. 
The legal basis for the aforementioned data processing in “my-picturemaxx” is article 6(1)(1)(b) and (f) GDPR. 

We delete your data insofar as it is no longer required for the stated purpose and no contractual or legal retention periods exist.

 

6.2. Disclosure to third parties

If you permit links to be made to administrators or customers via "my-picturemaxx", your user name, your first and family name, your address (including country) and your e-mail address are being displayed to this group of people for administrative purposes and for settlement in a separate protected area of "my-picturemaxx".

Only if you operate "my-picturemaxx" on your own account or you are an administrator/main contact person in your own company/organisational unit your first and your family name, your position and the e-mail address and contact data of your company/organisational unit are passed on to the partner making an offer via "my-picturemaxx" ("media provider") for the purpose of entering into a contract and agreeing the use of the researched media material. Directly after your registration we will send your data to our media providers in order to introduce you to them. For the transmission to third parties, we will ask for your prior consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time - with effect for the future. After your registration we only will forward your data exclusively to our media-providers for contract processing purposes.

Please note that some of our media providers are located in unsecure third countries (e.g. the USA and - in the case of an unregulated Brexit - in the UK, and others). By registering, you confirm that you are in agreement with this.
The processing of data as stated in “my-picturemaxx” includes Article 6(1)(1)(a), (b) and (f) GDPR and Article 49(1)(1)(a) GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time; in this case, we will process your data only insofar as there is a legal basis for this.

The processing described above serves primarily to execute the contract. Despite, the picturemaxx-network lives from the fact that the individual participants communicate with each other and learn about the existence of new members, so that picturemaxx also has a legitimate interest in data processing in cases where you have not given your consent.

We erase your data as soon as they are no longer needed for this purpose and if they are not subject to contractual or legal retention periods.

This may involve the initiation of a contract. The data are erased as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose for which they have been collected and provided that they are not subject to any legal or contractual archiving obligations. The conversation has come to an end when it is apparent from the circumstances that the matter being discussed has been finally clarified. 

If we have obtained your consent and your data are processed by us for marketing purposes, the following applies: You can withdraw your consent to picturemaxx for the processing or any other use of your personal data at any time with effect for the future. In this case, the conversation cannot be continued. All personal data which are stored when contact is made are then erased if they are not required to be retained by law and if no other legal grounds for processing the data exist.

The following data are also stored at the time you send your message:

  • Your IP address 

  • The date and time at which you have made contact

 

These additional personal data processed during the transmission operation are used to prevent the contact form from being misused and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

9.2. Transmission to affiliated international offices

In certain circumstances the data entered by you may be passed on to the picturemaxx international offices, if the thematic and regional content of your enquiry relates to the relevant office (order processing). In this case also picturemaxx remains your first point of contact and you can continue to assert your rights against picturemaxx.

In some circumstances, picturemaxx may transfer the data to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA), for example to the USA. This is just the case, if picturemaxx employees abroad are the right picturemaxx contact partners to answer your request. picturemaxx will, however, take the necessary steps to ensure that an appropriate level of data protection is maintained. If picturemaxx sends your data to the United States, for example, additional measures are taken, such as concluding EU-compliant data transmission agreements with the data importer, if this is necessary.

By sending off the contact form you declare that you agree to transmission of the data entered in the contact form to regional picturemaxx offices abroad (for example USA), if the thematic and regional content of your enquiry relates to the relevant international office. You may withdraw your consent from picturemaxx at any time with effect for the future. 

The transmission of your data is legitimate under Article 6 (1) sentence 1 a) b) and f) GDPR. If your request is related to a foreign picturemaxx office, picturemaxx has an interest in contacting the employees in the foreign offices in order to be able to process your request. We erase your data as soon as they are no longer needed to achieve their intended purpose and if they are not subject to contractual or legal retention periods.

10. Use of cookies and analysis procedures

10.1. Use of cookies and similar technologies

In addition to the data mentioned above, various types of cookies are used and stored on your computer when you use our picturemaxx website. 

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer or mobile device when you visit our website. Various types of information are provided to us by cookies placed on your devices.

In addition to cookies, some services use so-called “localStorage entries”. A localStorage entry is functionally similar to a cookie. The difference is that localStorage stores information in your browser’s cache. Insofar as services on our website use localStorage, we expressly point this out in this privacy policy.

In addition, some services also use so-called “tracking pixels”.

Some services use so-called “device and browser fingerprinting”. That involves attempting to identify website visitors based on specific settings of the respective browser / the device used to access the website.
Insofar as we obtain consent to the storage of that information in your end device, § 25 par. 1 of the German Telecommunications and Telemedia Privacy Protection Act (Telekommunikation-Telemedien-Datenschutz-Gesetz – TTDSG) is the relevant legal basis for that purpose. The same applies if the information already stored in your end device is accessed.
If the sole purpose of the storage or the access is to carry out the transfer of a message via a public telecommunications network, the legal basis is § 25 par. 2 No. 1 TTDSG.
If the storage or the access are absolutely necessary for us to be able to provide a service explicitly desired by you, § 25 par. 2 No. 2 TTDSG is the relevant legal basis.
Below we inform you about relevant legal bases in specific cases. The subsequent processing of personal data is underpinned by one of the legal bases under the GDPR specified in section 3.1.
On our digital investor portal we install the types of cookies specified below.
 

Strictly necessary cookies
For proper operation of our website and display of content, certain cookies are technically essential for us to display our website to you at all. These “strictly necessary cookies” cannot be deselected because our website cannot be offered without them.

Cookies and similar technologies for statistics and external content
We use cookies to record the use of our website statistically. You do not have to select these cookies.

Cookies and similar technologies from external services are used to expand and optimize the functionality of our website and to make it more convenient for you to use. You do not have to accept the cookies and similar technologies used for this purpose, but if you do not, you will be unable to use the extended functions. You can also adjust the cookie settings in your browser. However, this could limit the functionality of our site. The same applies to localStorage entries, which you can delete from your browser cache.

10.2. Objection / Revocation of consent

Cookies are stored on your computer. You can decide to delete the cookies from your computer at any time. Through the settings in your browser, you can determine yourself whether the transmission of information by cookies from your computer to us should be disabled, restricted or the cookies should even be deleted completely. If you disable all cookies for our website, it may no longer be possible to use all the functions of the website to their full extent. In addition, you have the option to adjust your cookie settings directly on our website: if you have given your consent to cookies and other technologies, you can revoke this at any time on our Consent Management Platform by switching the corresponding button to “Off”.

11. Use of Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API, a map service operated by Google Inc., (“Google”). Google can be contacted at Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. That service enables us to display interactive maps to you directly in the website and enables you to con-veniently use the maps function.

 

If you visit the picturemaxx website, Google is informed that you have accessed the relevant subpage of our website. The following data is also passed on to Google:

  • Your IP address;

  • The date and time of the enquiry;

  • The content of the request (specific page);

  • Data on your location;

  • Access status/HTTP status code

  • Website from which the request originated;

  • Your browser type;

  • Your operating system and its interface

  • The language setting and version of the browser software.

 

This occurs irrespective of whether Google provides a user account via which you are logged in or if there is no existing user account. If you are logged into Google, your data will be directly ascribed to your account. If you do not want such ascription to your Google profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses it for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or needs-based design of its website. Such utilisation occurs, in particular (even for users who are not logged in), for the provision of needs-based, customer-oriented advertising and in order to inform other users of the Google network about your activities on our website. You are entitled to a right of objection to the creation of these user profiles; in order to exercise that right you must contact Google directly.

 

With regard to this processing, our cooperation with Google occurs on the basis of a joint controller agreement in accordance with Article 26 GDPR. You can find that agreement via the following link: https://privacy.google.com/intl/de/businesses/mapscontrollerterms/

 

You have the possibility of easily deactivating the Google Maps service and thus preventing the data transfer to Google: For that purpose, deactivate JavaScript in your browser. However, please note that, if you do so, you will not be able to use the map display function.

 

Data transfer to the USA and other third countries may occur. Google and its affiliates are certified in accordance with the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework. The data transmission to the United States of America therefore occurs on the basis of the relevant adequacy decision of the European Commission in accordance with Article 45(3) GDPR. We have also concluded standard contractual clauses with Google in order to ensure a European level of data protection.

 

We use Google Maps API so that we can offer you a maps function. This is justified under § 25 par. 1 TTDSG and Article 6(1) point a) GDPR insofar as you have granted us consent in advance. You may withdraw that consent at any time with effect for the future as described above in section 10.2. If you do so, you will no longer to be able to use the Google Maps service.

 

You can obtain further information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and processing thereof by Google in Google’s privacy policy. There you will also find further information on your rights in this respect and setting options for the protection of your privacy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en

Types of data:

For registration for our webinars we use GoToWebinar’s registration function. Upon registration the following data is collected from you:

  • Your name;

  • Your e-mail address;

  • Your function and position (optional);

  • Company (optional).

 

The further data processed by GoTo in connection with webinars is detailed below. Note: We have no direct influence on the collection and processing of that data by GoTo,

for example the duration of the session, the connections created, the hardware, equipment and devices used, IP addresses, location, language settings, the operating system used, unique device identifiers and other diagnostic data.

According to it’s own information, GoTo processes that data for the following purposes: To provide, operate and improve the services. The recorded location-related data is processed for the purpose of the provision, operation and support of the service as well as for the purpose of preventing fraud and monitoring security.

Further data processing during webinars:

In order to participate in a webinar you can either log in to GoToWebinar as a guest or register. If you are a registered user of GoToWebinar, GoTo is the sole controller with regard to the registration data.

If you log in as a guest, for us and the participants in the respective webinar only the data that you provide in the course of logging in as a guest (i.e. at least your user name) is visible. If you participate via chat, audio or video, we also record your content in that context. That data is visible for other participants in the webinar.

We have configured GoToWebinar such that the audio and video of the participants is deactivated as a standard setting. You may activate audio and video yourself if you wish.

 

Legal bases:

As a rule, the processing of your data by us as the controller for the purpose of carrying out webinars occurs on the basis of Article 6(1) point f) GDPR. Our legitimate interests lie in effectively carrying out webinars for interested, voluntary participants.

 

Location of the data processing:

As a service provider, GoTo is given access to the processed data (unless it is end-to-end encrypted).

Those purposes are detailed in GoTo’s privacy policy : https://www.goto.com/de/company/legal/privacy/international

 

Data storage period:
