Data protection and privacy

Thank you for your interest in Agantty GmbH. Data protection is of particular importance for the management of Agantty GmbH. The use of Agantty GmbH’s Internet pages is generally possible without the disclosure of any personal data. If data collection becomes necessary and there is no legal basis for processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subjects.
The use of personal data, such as the name, address or e-mail address of the persons concerned, is always in accordance with the basic data protection regulation and in compliance with the specific data protection regulations applicable to Agantty GmbH. With this data protection declaration we would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data processed by us. Furthermore, data subjects are informed about their rights by means of this data protection declaration.
Agantty GmbH, as the person responsible for processing, has implemented comprehensive technical and organisational measures to ensure the best possible protection of the processed personal data. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can contain security gaps, so that complete protection cannot be guaranteed. Therefore, every person concerned is free to transfer any personal data to us by alternative means, e.g. by post or telephone.

1. terms used

The data protection declaration of Agantty GmbH uses the terms used in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our privacy policy should be easy to read and understand for all parties involved, therefore a brief explanation of the terms used below:

A legitimate interest would be, for example, an obligation to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz, AGG).

9. use of Facebook

Agantty GmbH has integrated components of Facebook on this website. Facebook is a social network for the exchange of pictures, contributions and communication.
The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland, is responsible for the processing of personal data if a data subject lives outside the United States or Canada.

A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_DE. As part of this process, Facebook will be informed about which specific subpage of our site is visited by you if you are logged in to Facebook at the same time. This applies for the entire duration of your visit to our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and associated with your Facebook account through Facebook. If you click on one of the Facebook buttons integrated into our site, such as the “Like” button, or leave a comment, Facebook assigns this information to your Facebook account and stores it.
This happens regardless of whether you click on the Facebook component or not. You can prevent this collection and transmission to Facebook by logging out of Facebook before visiting our website.

10. use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

We have integrated the component Google Analytics (with anonymization function) on this page. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis involves the collection, collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of website visitors. Among other things, the web analysis service collects data about which website it came from (referrer), which subpages of the website it accesses or how often and for how long it looks at a subpage. We use this to optimize the site and to analyse the cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.
The Google Analytics component is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
We use the addition “_gat. _anonymizeIp”for the web analysis via Google Analytics. This will reduce the IP address of your Internet connection by Google and thus make it anonymous if you access our site from the EU or another country party to the European Economic Area Agreement.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse visitor flows on our site. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website in order to compile online reports for us that show the activities on our website and to provide other services related to the use of our website.
Google Analytics places a cookie on your computer. By setting the cookie, Google will be able to analyse the use of our site. Each time you access one of the individual pages of this site, your Internet browser is prompted by the Google Analytics component to submit data to Google. As part of this procedure, Google receives information about personal data, such as your IP address, which is used by Google, among other things, to trace the origin of the visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission payments.
The cookie is used to store your personal information, such as the access time, the place from which you accessed our site and the frequency of visits to our site by you. Whenever you visit our website, these personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, are transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected via the technical procedure to third parties.
As already shown above, you can prevent a cookie and thus also the setting of cookies from permanently contradicting at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used. This browser setting would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on your computer. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the browser.
Furthermore, they have the possibility to object to the collection of the data generated by Google Analytics relating to the use of this site as well as the processing of this data by Google and to prevent it. To do this you need to download and install a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout This browser add-on tells Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data or information about visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is regarded by Google as a contradiction.
Further information and Google’s privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html Google Analytics is explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.com/intl/de_en/analytics/.

13. use of Google+

We have integrated the Google+ button as a component on this website. Google+ is a so-called social network. A social network is an Internet-based social meeting place, an online community that usually enables users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or enables the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Google+ enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friendship requests, among other things.

Each time you access one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by us and on which a Google+ button has been integrated, the Internet browser on your computer is automatically prompted by the respective Google+ button to download a representation of the corresponding Google+ button from Google. As part of this technical process, Google is informed about which specific subpage of our website it is visiting. More detailed information about Google+ is available at https://developers.google.com/+/.
If you are logged in to Google+ at the same time, every time you visit our website and for the entire duration of your stay on our website, Google will recognize which specific subpage of our website you are visiting. This information is collected by the Google+ button and assigned by Google to the respective Google+ account of the person concerned.
If you click one of the Google+ buttons integrated on our website and make a Google+1 recommendation, Google assigns this information to your personal Google+ user account and stores this personal data. Google stores your Google+1 recommendation and makes it publicly available in accordance with the conditions you have accepted in this regard.

14. subscription to our newsletter

On the Agantty GmbH website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company’s newsletter. The personal data transmitted to us when ordering the newsletter is determined by the input mask used for this purpose.
We inform you at regular intervals by means of a newsletter about news and offers of the company. You can only receive our newsletter if you have a valid e-mail address and register to receive it. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail in the double opt-in procedure will be sent to the e-mail address you have entered for the newsletter dispatch for the first time. This confirmation e-mail serves to check whether the owner of the e-mail address has authorized the receipt of the newsletter as the person concerned.
When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) of the computer system used by them at the time of registration as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a person concerned at a later point in time and therefore serves our legal protection.
The personal data collected when registering for the newsletter will be used exclusively for sending our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or for registration, as could be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter offer or changes in the technical conditions. The personal data collected in the context of the newsletter service will not be passed on to third parties. You can cancel your subscription to our newsletter at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data which you have given us for the newsletter dispatch can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking your consent, you will find a corresponding link in every newsletter. It is also possible at any time to unsubscribe directly from the newsletter dispatch on the website of the controller or to inform the controller in any other way.

15. Legal basis

Art. 6 para. 1 letter a GDPR serves Agantty GmbH as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain your consent for the respective processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which they are party, as is the case, for example, with regard to processing operations necessary for the provision of a service or consideration, the processing shall be based on Article 6 (1)(b) of the GDPR. This also applies to pre-contractual measures, e. g. inquiries about our services. For the fulfilment of tax obligations, processing is based on Article 6 (1)(c) of the GDPR. If a visitor to our premises were injured, his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this case, the processing would be based on Article 6 (1)(d) of the GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6 (1)(f) of the GDPR. This applies in cases in which Agantty GmbH or a third party is concerned with the protection of a legitimate interest, provided that their interests, fundamental rights and freedoms do not predominate. See also recital 47 sentence 2 of the GDPR.

16. legitimate interests

If the processing of data, as mentioned above, is based on Art. 6 para. 1 letter f of the GDPR, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of our employees and shareholders.

17. duration of storage

Our criteria for the storage duration of data are the respective legal retention periods. After the expiry of this period, your data will be deleted or blocked routinely, as long as it is not necessary for the fulfilment or initiation of a contract.

18. provision of personal data

We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law or may result from contractual regulations. Sometimes it may be necessary to provide us with personal data in order to conclude a contract, which will then be processed by us. Failure to deliver would mean that the contract could not be concluded with you. Before any personal data is provided by you, you must contact our data protection officer. Our data protection officer will then inform you whether the provision of data is required by law or contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the data and what consequences it would have if the data were not made available.

19. automated decisions

We refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
