Privacy Policy for this website

Basic Information

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came into force on May 25, 2018, is a European Union regulation that standardises and unifies the rules for the processing of personal data by private companies and public bodies in the EU. Its intention is to ensure the protection of personal data within the EU as a whole. We at Clippic take the protection of your personal data very seriously and your privacy is of the utmost importance to us. We process your personal data in accordance with the applicable statutory data protection requirements for the purposes listed below. Personal data in the sense of the information on data protection provided here is all information that relates to your person. This refers in particular to the contract data we are required to collect by law or according to contractual agreement. This primarily concerns information about the customer’s person (e.g. username, email address, name and first name and address) and information stored in your profile. Since new technologies and the enhancement of this website can lead to amendments to this Privacy Policy, we recommend that you read this Privacy Policy again at regular intervals. Definitions of the terms used (e.g. “Personal Data” or “Processing”) can be found in Art. 4 GDPR.

Who is responsible for collecting data on this website?

Data is collected on this website by the website operator. You can find their contact details in the Legal Notice on this website.

Access data and data collection

In the first instance, we collect your data in situations where you provide it to us. For example, this could be the data you enter in a contact form. Our IT systems also collect other data automatically when you visit our website. Some of the data is collected to make sure that the website functions without error. Other data may be used to analyse your user behaviour. You will be given detailed information on how your data is used on this page.

Owing to our legitimate interest (cf. Art. 6. (1) (f) GDPR), we, the website operator or provider, collect data on access to this website and save it in the form of “server log files” on the website server. We log the following data in this manner:

  • Web page visited
  • The time of day when access took place
  • The volume of data sent in bytes
  • Source/link which sent you to the page
  • The browser used
  • The operating system used
  • Anonymised IP address

These server log files are stored for a maximum of 30 days and then deleted. The data is stored for security reasons, e.g. to be able to clarify instances of misuse. If data needs to be saved as grounds for proof, it is excluded from deletion until the incident has been finally clarified.

Right to object to data collection in special cases and against direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

If data processing takes place based on Art. 6. (1) (e) or (f) GDPR, you have the right at any time to object against your personal data being processed for reasons that arise from your personal circumstances; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. You can find the respective legal basis upon which processing is based in this Privacy Policy. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can establish compelling legitimate grounds to do so that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or its processing for purposes of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims (objection according to Art. 21 (1) GDPR).

If your personal data is processed for direct advertising purposes, you are entitled to submit an objection at any time against its processing for the purpose of such advertising; This also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will no longer be used for direct marketing purposes (objection according to Art. 21. (2) GDPR).

SSL and TLS encryption

This website uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transfer of sensitive content, such as orders or enquiries you send to us as the website operator. You can recognise such a connection when the address line in your browser changes from “http://” to “https://”.

If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, data you submit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Audience measurement & cookies

This website uses cookies for pseudonymised audience measurement, which either our server or the server from third parties transfer to the user’s browser. Cookies are small files which are stored on your device. Your browser accesses these files. The use of cookies increases the usability and security of this website. You can object to the use of these files in this case if you do not want audience measurement cookies to be stored on your device:

https://www.clippic.app/cookie-richtlinien/

Popular browsers offer setting options for preventing the use of cookies. Note: if you make the corresponding settings, there is no guarantee that you will be able to access all the features of this website without restriction.

Cookies used to perform the electronic communications process or to provide certain functions you wish to use are saved subject to Art. 6. (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies to ensure the error-free technical and optimised provision of its services.

Collecting and processing personal data

The website operator only collects, uses and discloses your personal data if it is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of data. Personal information includes all information that serves to identify your person and which can be traced back to you – for example, your name, email address and phone number. You can visit our website without providing any information about your person. However, in order to improve our online service, we store your access data on this website (without personal reference). This data includes, for example, the file you requested or the name of your Internet provider. Anonymising the data makes it impossible to draw conclusions about your person.

Handling contact details

If you contact us as the website operator using the various options available for establishing contact, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and respond to your enquiry. This data is not disclosed to third parties without your consent.

Handling comments and posts

Your IP address is saved if you leave a post or comment on this website. This is based on our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6. (1) (f) GDPR and serves to protect us as the website operator: this is because if your post breaches applicable law, we can be prosecuted for it, which is why we have an interest in the identity of the posting or contributing author.

Google Analytics

Based on our legitimate interests in analysing and optimising our online service in the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, this website use the Google Analytics service offered by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). The service (Google Analytics) uses cookies which are text files that are stored on your device. The information collected by the cookie is usually sent to a Google server in the USA for analysis and stored there.

Google LLC complies with European data protection law and is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement:

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active/

IP anonymisation is used on this website. The user’s IP address is truncated within the member states of the European Union and European Economic Area and the other contracting states to the agreement. Only in individual cases is the IP address transferred in the first instance to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Truncation here eliminates any personal reference to your IP address. The user’s IP address the browser transfers is not combined with other data that Google stores.

Within the framework of the commissioned data agreement which we as website operator have concluded with Google Inc., the latter uses the information collected to prepare an evaluation of website use and activity and provide services associated with Internet use.

The data Google collects on our behalf is used to evaluate individual users’ use of our online service, for example, to prepare reports on activity on the website to improve our online service.

The option is available to you to prevent cookies being stored on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. If your browser does not allow cookies, there is no guarantee that you will be able to access all the functions of this website without restriction.

You can also use a browser plug-in to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) being sent to and used by Google Inc. Clicking on the following link takes you to the corresponding plugin:

https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

Alternatively, by clicking on the link below, you prevent Google Analytics from collecting data about you on this website. By clicking on the link above you can download an opt-out cookie. Your browser must therefore generally allow cookies to be saved for this purpose. If you regularly delete your cookies, you will need to click on the link again every time you visit this website.

(1) (f) GDPR), this website uses the Facebook social plugin, which is operated by Facebook Inc. (1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA).

Contact Form

If you use our contact form to send us enquiries, we store the information you provide in the form along with the contact details you enter to precipitate processing your enquiry and handling any follow-up questions. We do not disclose this data without your consent.

As a result, the data entered in the contact form is processed subject to your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can revoke your consent to this at any time. To do so, simply send us an informal email. The legality of the data processing operations we perform up to the point of you revoking your consent remains unaffected by the act of revocation.

The data you have entered in the contact form remains in our possession until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to its storage or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after your enquiry has been processed in full). Mandatory statutory provisions – especially retention periods – remain unaffected by this.

Enquiries by email or phone

If you contact us by email or phone, we will store and process your enquiry, including all personal data resulting from it (name, enquiry), for the purpose of processing your enquiry. We do not disclose this data without your consent.

Processing your data takes place subject to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR if your enquiry relates to the fulfilment of a contract or it is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, processing take place based on your consent (Art. 6. (1) (a) GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6. (1) (f) GDPR), since we have a legitimate interest in effectively processing enquiries directed at us.

The data transferred to us in the enquiry form remains in our possession until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to its storage or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after your enquiry has been processed in full). This takes place without prejudice to mandatory statutory provisions and, especially, retention periods.

User Rights

As a user, you have the right to receive free information about the personal data we have stored on your person. You also have the right to correct incorrect data, restrict its processing and have your personal data deleted. You can also exercise your right to data portability if this applies to you. If you are under the assumption that your data has been processed illegally, you can lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.

Data Deletion

As long as your wish does not clash with a legal obligation to store data (e.g. data retention), you have the right to have your data deleted. Data we store will be deleted if it is no longer required for its intended purpose and no legal retention periods apply. Data processing is restricted if deletion cannot take place because it is required for admissible legal purposes. In this case, the data is blocked and is not processed for other purposes.

Right to object

Users of this website can exercise their right to complain and object to their personal data being processed at any time. Please contact the following email address if you want information on the personal data stored on your person or you want it corrected, blocked or deleted, or if you have any questions regarding the collection, processing or use of your personal data or if you want to revoke your consent: head@clippic.app

Privacy Policy for the Application

1. General

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came into force on May 25, 2018, is a European Union regulation that standardises unifies the rules for the processing of personal data by private companies and public bodies in the EU. Its intention is ensure the protection of personal data within the EU as a whole. We at Clippic take the protection of your personal data very seriously and your privacy is of the utmost importance to us. We process your personal data in accordance with the applicable statutory data protection requirements for the purposes listed below. Personal data in the sense of the information on data protection provided here is all information that relates to your person. This refers in particular to the contract data we are obliged to collect by law or according to contractual agreement. This primarily concerns information about the customer’s person (e.g. username, email address, name and first name and address) and information stored in your profile.

2. Data Controller

The Data Controller responsible for processing your personal data is tabs vs spaces UG (limited liability), Jonas Palme (owner), Wittener Straße 123 D-44803 Bochum.

3. Processing purposes and recipients

3.1 Execution of the agreement

We or service providers we commission process your personal data to fulfil the agreement we have concluded with you. We also transfer your personal data to third parties (e.g. the IT service providers we commission) to fulfil the agreement, contact you for tutoring and send you messages etc. The legal basis for processing and providing your personal data is therefore its processing for the purpose of fulfilling and executing the agreement. Without this we cannot offer and render the services of Clippic.

3.2 Advertising and tailored offers

We also use your personal data to send you product information about products offered by Clippic in the realm of value-added photo products and products/services relating to photography in general. This processing takes place if a legitimate interest exists to do so unless your legitimate interests outweigh the balance of interests (balancing of interests). The legal basis is formed by a legitimate interest. The legitimate interest for our company is offering you tailored products and improving our services and products. We will only contact you with advertising otherwise if you have granted us separate consent or if a legal basis exists as justification.

3.3 Credit Report

Insofar as contractually agreed in individual cases, we reserve the right to obtain credit information on you. This can take place when the agreement is concluded, before an agreement is renewed, when the agreement is amended, when circumstances that impair your creditworthiness become known or in note form. We may transfer your name and address to Creditreform GmbH, Radlkoferstraße 2, D-81373 Munich for this purpose. We can refuse to enter into a contractual relationship with you if negative information comes back about aspects of your creditworthiness. The legal basis for processing here is a balance of interests. Our legitimate interest lies in the preparation and analysis of tracking statistics. We reserve the right to use other business information instead of the business information stated. In this case, we will make sure that it offers at least the same guarantee of data protection compliance as the aforementioned information.

3.4 Other recipients and purposes

We may have carefully selected and commissioned service providers, and, in particular, IT service providers perform or undertake some of the aforementioned processes and services, who in some cases may be based outside the EU/EEA (third country). In these cases, a transfer of data to third countries takes place. Data protection agreements for establishing an appropriate level of data protection are contractually agreed with the service providers. These include standard EU contracts: if service providers do not work for us within the framework of a commissioning agreement, the legal basis for transferring the data is formed by the services of third parties being required for the optimised and efficient fulfilment of the contract with you or for fulfilling our contractual obligations. We weigh up your interests before any transfer of your customer data takes place to third parties. Here, our legitimate interest in evaluating the acceptance of our products or determining the satisfaction of our customers is weighed against your interest in the responsible handling of your data.

4. Duration of the storage of your data and its deletion

We delete your personal data once the contractual relationship with you has ended (e.g. by deleting your profile in the Clippic App), once all mutual claims are met and any statutory retention requirements or legal justifications for storing your personal data no longer apply. We may use your email for a maximum of 24 months after the contractual relationship has been terminated. The legal basis for processing here is a balance of interests. Our legitimate interest is to convince you of our products and our service by means of promotional mail.

5. Legal basis for processing

Art. 6 (1) (a) EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as legal basis insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing personal data.

Art. 6 (1) (b) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as legal basis for processing the personal data required for fulfilling a contract to which the data subject is party. This also applies to the processing operations required for performing pre-contractual actions.

Art. 6 (1) (c) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as a legal basis insofar as processing personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject.

Art. 6 (1) (d) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as a legal basis in the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data.

Art. 6 (1) (f) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as a legal basis if processing is required to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest. Our company’s legitimate interest lies in conducting our business.

6. Your Rights

6.1 Information, correction, deletion etc.

We are happy to inform you about whether and which of your personal data we have stored on your person and who we may have disclosed it to. You can also assert the following additional rights in accordance with the statutory provisions,: correction, deletion, restriction on processing (blocking for certain purposes) and the transfer of data protection.

6.2 Right to object to direct advertising etc.

If we process data based on a balancing of interests (cf. Sec. 3.2 to 3.3), you are entitled to submit an objection at any time to us against this form of processing for reasons resulting from your personal circumstances. You particularly have the right to object to processing for purposes of advertising.

6.3 Right to revoke

If you have granted us separate consent to process your personal data, you can revoke this consent at any time. The legality of processing your data up to the point of revocation remains unaffected by an act of revocation.

6.4 Questions or complaints
