Check All AG ("Check ALL" or "We") attaches great importance to responsible and legally compliant handling of personal data. Personal data is processed exclusively on the basis of the applicable law.
You can avoid cookies at any time by following the cookie avoidance information in the respective web browser. In principle, web browsers accept cookies automatically, but offer options to block or delete them. The instructions for managing cookies on web browsers can usually be found under the help functions or in the operating instructions of the mobile device.
2. how is the data stored?
The IP data of the connection owners are stored by the website operator when visiting the websites. Under certain circumstances, data such as name and address or other personal data may also be collected. We store data only as long as required by the applicable legal requirements or the purpose of the processing. The duration of storage depends on the legal and internal regulations. If there is no longer a retention requirement, we delete or anonymize the data as part of our normal processes.
3. what online tracking techniques are used?
If we integrate a provider of an analysis tool on the website, this may also collect corresponding data. Such tools are codes that servers of us or servers of another provider transmit to the browser or your terminal device when connecting to websites and stores until the programmed expiration date.
Your behavior can thus be recorded across multiple websites and across multiple end devices. The respective provider can often also use this data for its own purposes, e.g. for personalized advertising on its own website and on other websites that it supplies with advertising. If you are registered with such providers, providers can allocate the usage data. The processing of such data is carried out by the providers under their responsibility and own data protection regulations. Insofar as these third-party providers process data, they do so either as order processors of us or as sole data controllers, depending on the type of service and data processing. We currently work together with the following providers for the aforementioned purposes:
- Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics to generate reports on the use of our website by enabling Google to track the behavior of visitors to our websites (e.g. duration, frequency of pages viewed, geographical origin of access). We also use Google Audience, another web analytics service provided by Google. Through this service, data is collected and stored, from which pseudonymized usage profiles are created. Through this technology, you can receive targeted advertising from us on other external pages of the Google Partner Network. Google Audience receives access to the cookies created in the context of the use of Google Analytics. In the course of use, data, such as in particular the IP address and activities may be transmitted to a server of the company Google LLC and stored there. Google LLC may transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or if processing of this data by third parties takes place.
The provider of Google Analytics is Google LLC, responsible for data protection is Google Ireland Ltd. We have configured Google Analytics so that the IP addresses are shortened before being forwarded to the USA, so that they cannot be traced. We also do not transmit any data to Google that can be associated with you. Google provides us with reports and evaluations based on the collected user data and in this sense is our order processor. However, Google also processes the collected data to improve its products and services. Information on the data protection of Google Analytics can be found at https://support.google.com/analytics. If you wish to prevent its use, the following measures can be taken: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout .
- Google reCAPTCHA
We use Google reCAPTCHA (hereinafter "reCAPTCHA") on our website. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google").
The purpose of reCAPTCHA is to check whether data entry on our websites (e.g. in a contact form) is made by a human or by an automated program. For this purpose, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. For the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, time spent by the website visitor on the website or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to Google. By inserting reCAPTCHA, data is transferred from them to the American and European Google servers. The IP address that your browser transmits to Google is generally not merged with other Google data from other Google services. However, if you are logged into your Google account while using the reCAPTCHA plug-in, the data will be merged. The reCAPTCHA analyses run entirely in the background. Website visitors are not made aware that an analysis is taking place. It is in the legitimate interest of Check All to protect its web offers from abusive automated spying and from SPAM.
4. how do we use social media presences?
We may operate our own presences on social networks and similar third-party platforms. If you communicate with us via such presences or comment on or redistribute content, we collect corresponding information and process you primarily for communication and marketing purposes. We have the right, but not the obligation, to check content before or after it is published and to delete content without notification (e.g. in the case of unacceptable behavior), insofar as this is technically possible, or to report it to the provider of the relevant platform. In the event of a breach of decency and conduct rules, we may also report the relevant user account to the provider of the platform for blocking or deletion.
When visiting social media sites, data (e.g. visitor behavior) may also be transmitted or collected directly by the providers and processed together with other data already known about you (e.g. for marketing and market research purposes). For more information on data processing by social network providers, please refer to the privacy policies of the respective social networks. We currently work with the following providers for the purposes mentioned:
We use the provider YouTube, among others, for the integration of videos. YouTube is operated by YouTube LLC with headquarters at 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube is represented by Google Inc. with its registered office at Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
On some of our internet pages we use plugins of the provider YouTube. When you call up the Internet pages of our website that are provided with such a plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established and the plugin is displayed. This transmits to the YouTube server which of our Internet pages you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of YouTube, YouTube assigns this information to your personal user account. When using the plugin, such as clicking on the start button of a video, this information is also assigned to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your YouTube user account and other user accounts of the companies YouTube LLC and Google Inc. before using our website and deleting the corresponding cookies of the companies.
For more information on data processing and privacy notices by YouTube, please visit https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
Plugins of the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA are integrated on our pages. You can recognize the Facebook plugins by the Facebook logo or the "Like" button on our site.
When you visit our pages, a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server is established via the plugin. Facebook thereby receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the Facebook "Like" button while logged into your Facebook account, you can link the content of our pages on your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to associate the visit to our pages with your user account. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the pages, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Facebook.
Functions of the Twitter service are integrated on our pages. These functions are offered by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. By using Twitter and the "Re-Tweet" function, the websites you visit are linked to your Twitter account and made known to other users. In the process, data such as IP address, browser type, domains called up, pages visited, mobile phone provider, device and application IDs and search terms, among other things, are transmitted to Twitter.
You can change your Twitter privacy settings in your account settings at https://twitter.com. If you have any questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our website also uses social plugins ("plugins") from Instagram, which is operated by Instagram LLC., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA ("Instagram"). The plugins are marked with an Instagram logo, for example in the form of an "Instagram camera".
When you visit our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of Instagram. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Instagram directly to your browser and integrated into the page. Through this integration, Instagram receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding website, even if you do not have an Instagram profile or are not currently logged into Instagram. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to an Instagram server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged in to Instagram, Instagram can directly assign your visit to our website to your Instagram account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the "Instagram" button, this information is also transmitted directly to an Instagram server and stored there.
If you do not want Instagram to directly assign the data collected via our website to your Instagram account, you must log out of Instagram before visiting our website. For more information, please visit https://help.instagram.com.
