      Personal data is transferred to third countries via the cookies and tracking tools used on www.feld-m.de. The necessary contractual agreements exist with the respective service providers.

    6. 1.6. Duration of storage

      We principally erase personal data collected on www.feld-m.de once it is no longer required for the processing purpose or on completion of any legal verification and retention period.
      If the data are no longer required for the performance of contractual or legal obligations, these are regularly erased unless their temporary processing is necessary for the following purposes:

      • Preservation of evidence in the context of the statutory statute of limitations. According to Section 195 ff of the German Civil Code (BGB), these limitation periods can be up to 30 years, whereby the standard period of limitation is 3 years.
    7. 1.7. Rights of the data subject

      If personal data relating to you is processed, you are considered to be a data subject within the meaning of the GDPR and you have the following rights in respect to the controller:

      1. 1.7.1. Right of access

        You have the right to obtain from the controller confirmation as to whether or not personal data relating to you is processed by us.

        You may request the restriction of the processing of your personal data relating to you under the following conditions:

        1. (1) You contest the accuracy of the personal data relating to you, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;

        4. (4) You have objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override your reasons.

        If the processing of personal data relating to you has been restricted, this data – with the exception of storage – may only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.

        If you have obtained restriction of processing in accordance with the above conditions, you will be notified by the controller before the restriction of processing is lifted.

      4. 1.7.4. Right to erasure

        1. a) Erasure obligation

          You can demand that the controller deletes your personal data relating to you without undue delay, and the controller shall have the obligation to erase this data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies:

          1. (1) The personal data relating to you are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
          2. (2) You withdraw consent on which the processing is based according to point (a) of Article 6(1), or point (a) of Article 9(2) GDPR, and there is no other legal ground for the processing.
          3. (3) You object to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR, and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) GDPR.
          4. (4) The personal data relating to you have been processed unlawfully.
          5. (5) The erasure of the personal data relating to you is required to fulfil a legal obligation under Union or Member State law, to which the controller is subject.

        2. b) Information to third parties

          Where the controller has made the personal data public and is obligated to erase the personal data pursuant to Article 17(1) GDPR, the controller, taking available technology and the cost of implementation into account, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform controllers which are processing the personal data that you, as the data subject, have requested the erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data.

        3. c) Exceptions

          The right to erasure does not apply to the extent that the processing is necessary

          1. (1) for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information;
          2. (2) for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in exercising official authority vested in the controller;
          3. (3) for reasons of public interest in the area of public health in accordance with points (h) and (i) of Article 9(2) as well as Article 9(3) GDPR;
          4. (4) for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89(1) of the GDPR, in so far as the law referred to in subparagraph a) is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing, or
          5. (5) for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
      5. 1.7.5. Right to be informed

        If you have exercised your right to obtain from the controller the rectification, erasure or restriction of processing, it is obliged to notify all recipients to whom your personal data have been disclosed about the rectification or erasure of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves to be impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

        You have the right to be informed by the controller about these recipients.

      6. 1.7.6. Right to data portability

        You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to the controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data have been provided, provided that

        1. (1) the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) GDPR or point (a) of Article 9(2) GDPR or is based on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1) GDPR; and
        2. (2) the processing is carried out by automated means.

        In exercising this right you also have the right to have the personal data concerning you transmitted directly from one controller to another, provided that this is technically feasible. These rights should not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

        The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in exercising official authority vested in the controller.

      7. 1.7.7. Right to object

        You have the right at any time, for reasons that arise from your particular situation, to object to the processing of personal data concerning you which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions. The controller will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

        If the personal data concerning you is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.

        If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.

        In the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you may exercise your right to object by automated means using technical specifications.

      8. 1.7.8. Right to revoke your declaration of consent concerning data privacy

        If the processing of your personal data is based on your consent, you may revoke your consent to processing at any time with future effect. The relevant data will then be blocked or erased immediately in accordance with legal storage periods.

        The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.

        You can carry out your revocation in the same way as your consent. Alternatively you can send your revocation of consent, stating your full name and email address, to the following postal or email address:

        Feld M GmbH
        – Datenschutz –
        Sandstraße 33
        80335 München
        Phone +49 (0) 89 / 60807600
        datenschutz@feld-m.de
      9. 1.7.9. Exclusion right in automated decisions on a case-by-case basis, including profiling

        You have the right not to be subjected to a decision based solely on automated processing – including profiling – that will have legal effect or similarly affect you in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision

        1. (1) is required for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the controller,
        2. (2) is permitted by Union or Member State legislation to which the controller is subject, and where such legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or
        3. (3) is made with your express consent.

        However, these decisions must not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Article 9(1) GDPR, unless point (a) or (g) of Article 9(2) GDPR applies and reasonable measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.

        With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the controller shall implement suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.

      10. 1.7.10. Right to complain to a supervisory authority

        Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, place of work or place of alleged infringement, if you believe that the processing of the personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR.

        The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been submitted shall inform the complainant of the status and results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy in accordance with Article 78 of the GDPR.

  2. 2. Provision of the website and creation of log files

    1. 2.1. Description and scope of the data processing

      Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer.

      The following data is collected in this regard:

      1. 1. Browser type and browser version
      2. 2. Operating system used
      3. 3. Referrer URL
      4. 4. Subsites
      5. 5. Host name of the computer accessing the site
      6. 6. Time of the server request
      7. 7. IP address
      8. 8. Language
      9. 9. Device type

      This data will not be merged with other data sources.

      The data is also stored in our system’s log files. This data is not stored together with the user’s other personal data.

    2. 2.2. Purpose of the data processing

      The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. To achieve this, the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session.

      Data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data is used to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

    3. 2.3. Legal basis for data processing

      The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Article 6(1) point (f) GDPR. The legitimate interest of the website operator lies in the trouble-free provision of the website and the associated website services for users.

    4. 2.4. Duration of storage

      The data will be erased as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of its collection. In the case of collecting the data for providing the website, this is the case when the respective session is completed.

      The data is erased after 14 days. The service provider uses script-based deletion.

    5. 2.5. Means of objection and termination

      The collection of data for providing the website and the storage of data in log files is absolutely imperative for operating the website. Users therefore do not have any possibility to object.

  3. 3. Use of cookies

    FELD M owned Internet pages use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored on computer systems via an Internet browser.

    Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows the visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish each data subject’s individual browser from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular web browser can be recognised and identified by the unique cookie ID.

    The use of cookies enables FELD M GmbH to provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not otherwise be possible without setting the cookies.

    The cookies enable the information and services provided by our website to be optimised in the interests of users. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognise the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, users of websites that use cookies do not have to keep re-entering their access data each time they visit the websites, as this is done by the websites and the cookies stored on the users’ respective computer systems. Another example is the cookie used for shopping baskets in online shops. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.

    The data subject can prevent our website from setting cookies at any time by accordingly adjusting the settings on the Internet browser used and thus permanently disabling the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time using an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all standard Internet browsers. However, not all the functions on our website may be fully usable if the data subject disables the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used.

  4. 4. Web analysis by Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)

    1. 4.1. Description and scope of the data processing

      Google Analytics (with an anonymisation function) is integrated on our website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis refers to the capturing, collection and analysis of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data about the website from which a data subject came to our website (so-called referrers), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often, and for how long the subpage was viewed. We use web analytics primarily for optimising our website and for conducting cost-benefit analyses of the internet advertising.

      We use Google Analytics as part of the Google marketing platform. In the application, Google Analytics also includes advertising functions (Double Click, remarketing). In addition, a user-based analysis is possible, with which user profiles can be formed.

      The operator for the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

      The controller uses the application “_gat._anonymizeIp” for web analytics through Google Analytics. By means of this application, the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is abridged by Google and anonymised when accessing our website from a Member State of the European Union or from another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

      Google Analytics sets a cookie on the data subject’s information technology system. An explanation of what cookies are has already been provided above. Setting this cookie enables Google to analyse the usage of our website. Each time one of the webpages is accessed on this website, which is operated by the controller and in which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data subject’s information technology system is automatically initiated by the respective Google Analytics component to submit data to Google for online analysis purposes. As part of this technical process, Google is provided with personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which among other things help Google to track the origin of the visitors and clicks, and subsequently enable the settlement of commissions.

      The cookie stores personal information, such as the access time, the location from where the access was made, and the frequency with which our website is visited by the data subject. Each time you visit our website, your personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may transfer such personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.

    2. 4.2. Purpose of the data processing

      The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse visitor flows on our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, to compile for us online reports showing the activities on our websites, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.

      Google Analytics’ advertising capabilities enable its customers to create a remarketing audience based on specific behavioral, demographic, and interest data and to share these lists with Google Ads, use demographic and interest data in analytics reports, and create segments based on demographic and interest data. The purpose of the processing is to specifically address the user as part of a target group and also to display personalized content based on the processed personal data.

    3. 4.3. Legal basis for data processing

      The legal basis for the web analysis by Google Analytics is Article 6(1) point (a) GDPR.

    4. 4.4. Duration of storage

      The data stored by tracking is erased as soon as it is no longer needed for the stated purposes. In our case data is erased after 26 months.

      4.5. Means of objection and termination

      DAs described above, the data subject can prevent our website from setting cookies at any time by accordingly adjusting the settings on the Internet browser used and thus permanently disabling the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment of the Internet browser settings would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the data subject’s information technology system. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

      Furthermore, you can prevent Google from logging the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address), as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).

      As an alternative to installing the browser plugin, especially on Internet browsers on mobile devices, you can prevent your data from being collected by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link:

      Google Analytics status:

      This stores a so-called opt-out cookie on your device which prevents the future collection of your data by Google Analytics when visiting this website.

      Please note that if you delete cookies in your browser settings, the opt-out cookie from Google Analytics could also be deleted, which would then have to be re-enabled by you.

      Further information and Google’s currently applicable Privacy Policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html Google Analytics is explained in more detail at https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/

  5. 5. Consent Management with Usercentrics

    1. 5.1. Description and scope of the data processing

      We use the Usercentrics Consent Management Platform as a consent management tool for the analytics activities on our website.

      The Usercentrics Consent Management Platform collects log file and consent data using JavaScript. This JavaScript makes it possible to inform the user about his consent to certain tags on our website and to obtain, manage and document these.

      We process the following data:

      1. (1) Consent data and associated data (anonymous logbook data (Consent ID, Processor ID, Controller ID), consent status, timestamp)
      2. (2) Device data or data of the devices used (e.g. shortened IP addresses (IP v4, IP v6), device information, timestamp)
      3. (3) User data (e.g. email, ID, browser information, SettingIDs, changelog)

      The consentID (contains the above-mentioned data), the consent status incl. time stamp are stored in the local storage of your browser and simultaneously on the cloud servers used. Further processing will only take place if you make a request for information or revoke your consent. In this case, the responsible party (FELD M) is provided with the corresponding information in a compact data format in an easily readable text form for the purpose of data exchange (JSON file).

      We create statistics regarding the consent status – given or not given. To this point no user informaction is saved. Only the frequency and location of clicks are saved.

      Personal data is stored on a Google Cloud Server located in the EU (Brussels, Frankfurt/Main).

    2. 5.2. Purpose of the data processing

      The purpose of data processing is to analyse and manage the consents granted in order to comply with our obligation to comply with GDPR-compliant consent management. The use of Usercentrics serves the purpose of proving consent given and consent not given as well as their administration.

      The concrete processing purposes of the personal data mentioned under 5.1 are:

      1. (1) Obtaining and providing consent
      2. (2) Provide evidence of which device you used to give your consent, and at what time
      3. (3) Legitimization of access to the settings and documentation of changes
    3. 5.3. Legal basis for data processing

      The legal basis for the management of your consent to process your personal data is 6(1) point (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the legally secure documentation and verifiability of consents, the control of marketing measures on the basis of the consent given and the optimisation of consent quotas.

    4. 5.4. Duration of storage

      The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer needed. The associated cookie has a duration of 60 days.

      The withdrawal document of a previously given consent shall be kept for a period of three years. The storage is based on our accountability pursuant to 5(2) GDPR. This obliges us to comply with the processing of personal data in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation.

      Furthermore, the storage duration does not exceed the regular statute of limitations according to § 195 BGB of three years. This limitation period begins at the end of the year in which the claim arose (§ 199 BGB). Consequently, the three-year limitation period begins at the end of 31.12. and ends three years later on 31.12., midnight.

    5. 5.5. Means of objection and elimination

      The function can be switched on and off in our “privacy settings” by selecting the checkbox.

  6. 6. Contact form

    1. 6.1. Description and scope of the data processing

      If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored in order to process the enquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We will not share this information without your consent. The only mandatory fields are your first and last name, your company and your professional email address. The data is required to send you the associated documents in a personalised way.

      The information you provide in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (for example, after your enquiry has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – especially retention periods – remain unaffected.

    2. 6.2. Purpose of the data processing

      The personal data from the input mask is processed for the sole purpose of dealing with your enquiries. In the case of contact by email, we have a legitimate interest in processing the data since we as a company always strive to deal with your inquiries.

      The other personal data processed during the sending process are used to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

    3. 6.3. Legal basis for data processing

      The legal basis for processing the data when contacting us via the contact form for requesting further details about the Link Manager or TV2WEB offerings is the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures pursuant to Article 6(1) point (b) GDPR.

    4. 6.4. Duration of storage

      The data will be erased as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of its collection. For personal data entered in the input mask in the contact form and personal data sent by email, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is ended when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the relevant facts have been finally clarified.

      The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be erased at the latest after a period of 14 days.

    5. 6.5. Means of objection and termination

      Users can terminate the contractual or pre-contractual relationships at any time. If users contact us by email, they can object to the storage of their personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued.

      All personal data stored for contact purposes will be erased in this case.

  7. 7. Applications
