  1. collection and storage of personal data as well as type and purpose of their use

 

  1. a) When visiting the website

When you visit our websites, the browser on your device automatically sends information to the server on our website. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is recorded without your intervention and stored until it is automatically deleted:

IP address of the requesting computer,
Date and time of access,
Name and URL of the retrieved file,
Website from which access is made (referrer URL),
the browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer as well as the name of your access provider.

The mentioned data will be processed by us for the following purposes:

Ensuring a smooth connection of the website,
Ensuring comfortable use of our website,
evaluation of system security and stability as well as
for other administrative purposes.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest follows from the purposes listed above for data collection. Under no circumstances do we use the data collected for the purpose of drawing conclusions about you personally.

In addition, we use cookies and analysis services when you visit our website. You will find more detailed explanations under sections 4 and 5 of this data protection declaration.

If users leave comments or other contributions, your IP addresses will be stored on the basis of the legitimate interests of pro aurum within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 letter F DSGVO. This is in the interest of pro aurum in case someone leaves illegal contents in comments and contributions. In this case, pro aurum may itself be held liable for the comment or contribution and therefore has a legitimate interest in a subsequent determination of the identity of the author.

  1. b) When registering for our newsletter

If you have expressly consented according to art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO, pro aurum uses your e-mail address to send you the newsletter regularly. pro aurum informs you about offers and information about precious metals. To receive the newsletter it is sufficient to provide an e-mail address.

The registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after registration you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. 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. This confirmation is also necessary so that no one can log in with other e-mail addresses. Subscriptions to the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with legal requirements. This includes the storage of the login and confirmation time, as well as the IP address. The personal data collected when registering for the newsletter will be used exclusively for sending the pro aurum newsletter. The changes to your data stored with the shipping service provider are also logged.

pro aurum can make use of a shipping service when sending the newsletter. The terms of the contract with this service provider contain the provisions of data protection law and their observance is stipulated in the contract. Personal data collected within the scope of the newsletter service will not be passed on to third parties.

You can unsubscribe at any time, for example via a link at the end of each newsletter. Alternatively, you are welcome to send your unsubscription request at any time to info@proaurum.de by e-mail.

The newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in e-mails sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletter is stored and evaluated in order to optimise newsletter dispatch and improve the content of future newsletters. With the embedded tracking pixel, pro aurum can recognize whether and when an e-mail has been opened and which links in the e-mail have been called up. pro aurum is interested in using a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves both our business interests and the expectations of the users. Unsubscribing from receiving the newsletter automatically interprets pro aurum as a cancellation.

  1. c) When using our contact form

If you have any questions, pro aurum offers you the opportunity to contact pro aurum via a form provided on the website or by e-mail. A valid e-mail address is required so that pro aurum knows who sent the request and can respond to it. Further information can be provided voluntarily.

Data processing for the purpose of contacting pro aurum is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO on the basis of your voluntary consent.

The personal data collected by pro aurum for the use of the contact form will be deleted after your request has been processed and after the legal retention period (§ 257 HGB) has expired.

  1. d) Registration

You have the option of registering by entering personal data. Which personal data is transmitted depends on the respective input mask. The personal data entered are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the data controller and for his own purposes.

By registering, the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) to the person concerned, the date and time of registration are also stored.

  1. e) Comment function in the blog on the website

pro aurum offers users the opportunity to leave individual comments on individual blog posts on a blog located on the website of the data controller. A blog is a portal on a website, usually open to the public, in which one or more people who are called bloggers or web bloggers can post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blog posts. The blog posts can usually be commented by third parties.

If a person leaves a comment in the blog published on this website, not only the comments left by the person concerned but also details of the time of entering the comment and the user name (pseudonym) chosen by the person concerned are stored and published. Furthermore, the IP address assigned to the person concerned by the Internet service provider (ISP) is logged. This IP address is stored for security reasons and in the event that the person concerned violates the rights of third parties or posts illegal content by submitting a comment. The storage of this personal data is therefore in the personal interest of the data controller, so that he or she can exculpate himself or herself in the event of a violation of the law. The personal data collected will not be disclosed to third parties, unless such disclosure is required by law or serves the legal defence of the data controller.

  1. f) Subscription to comments in the blog on the website

The comments posted on the blog of pro aurum KG can be subscribed to by third parties. In particular, it is possible for a commentator to subscribe to the comments that follow his comment on a particular blog post.

If a data subject chooses to subscribe to comments, the controller sends an automatic confirmation email to double opt-in to verify that the owner of the specified email address has actually chosen this option. The option to subscribe to comments can be cancelled at any time.

  1. passing on of data

Your personal data will not be transmitted to third parties for purposes other than those listed below, unless stated under 1 b) above.

We will only pass on your personal data to third parties if:

you have given your express consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO,

the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f DSGVO is necessary to assert, exercise or defend legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in not disclosing your data,

in the event that a legal obligation exists for the transfer pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c DSGVO, and

this is legally permissible and is necessary for the processing of contractual relationships with you pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b DSGVO.

The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corresponding tracking tools.

 

  1. I) Google Analytics1

For the purpose of demand-oriented design and continuous optimization of our pages, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (www.google.de/intl/de/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter „Google“). In this context, pseudonymised user profiles are created and cookies (see point 4) are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as

Browser type/version,
the operating system used,
Referrer URL (the previously visited page),
Host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
Time of the server request,

are transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services associated with the use of the website and the Internet for the purposes of market research and demand-oriented design of these Internet pages. This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of the company. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other data from Google. The IP addresses are anonymized so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking).

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).

As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by clicking on the opt-out link at the bottom of this page. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent future collection of your data when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.

Further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics can be found in the Google Analytics Help (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en).

  1. II) Google Adwords Conversion Tracking

We also use Google Conversion Tracking to statistically record and evaluate the use of our website for the purpose of optimising it for you. Google Adwords will set a cookie (see paragraph 4) on your computer if you have accessed our website via a Google ad.

These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of the Adwords customer’s website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page.

Each Adwords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be traced via the websites of Adwords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Adwords customers see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive any information that personally identifies users.

If you do not wish to participate in the tracking process, you can also reject the setting of a cookie required for this – for example using a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies. You can also deactivate cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the „www.googleadservices.com“ domain. Google’s privacy policy for conversion tracking can be found here (https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html)

III). Privacy policy for the use of Google +1

Collection and disclosure of information:

The Google +1 button allows you to publish information worldwide. The Google +1 button gives you and other users personalized content from Google and our partners. Google stores both the information that you have given +1 for a content and information about the page that you viewed when you clicked +1. Your +1 can appear in Google services, such as search results or your Google profile, or elsewhere on websites and ads, along with your profile name and photo.

Google records information about your +1 activity to improve Google services for you and others. To use the Google +1 button, you need a public Google profile that is visible worldwide and must contain at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name may also replace another name you used when sharing content through your Google Account. The identity of your Google profile may be displayed to users who know your email address or have other identifying information about you.

Use of Information Collected:

In addition to the uses described above, the information you provide will be used in accordance with the applicable Google Privacy Policy. Google may publish aggregated statistics about users‘ +1 activity or share them with users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers or related websites.

IV). Privacy policy for the use of Google AdWords

Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to place ads in both Google’s search engine results and the Google Advertising Network. On the Google Network, ads are distributed to thematically relevant websites using an automatic algorithm and using the previously defined keywords.

The operator of Google AdWords services is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our website by displaying interest-relevant advertising on the websites of third parties and in the search engine results of the Google search engine and by displaying third-party advertising on our website.

If you access our website via a Google ad, Google will place a so-called conversion cookie on your information technology system. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and is not used to identify the person concerned.

If the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie is used to determine whether certain sub-pages, for example shopping baskets from an online shop system, have been called up on our website. The conversion cookie enables both us and Google to track whether a person who has accessed our website via an AdWords ad has generated revenue, i.e. has completed or cancelled a purchase of goods.

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to generate visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are used by us to determine the total number of users who have been referred to us via AdWords ads. Neither per aurum nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could identify the person concerned.

By means of the conversion cookie, personal information, such as the pages visited, is stored. Personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is therefore transferred to Google in the United States of America each time he or she visits our Internet pages. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.

You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, it is possible to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, access www.google.de/settings/ads from any Internet browser used and make the required settings there.

Further information and Google’s current privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/

  1. V) Privacy policy for the use of Google AdSense

Social Media Plug-ins

pro aurum uses social plug-ins of the social networks Facebook, Twitter, XING and YouTube on the website on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO to make the company better known. The underlying advertising purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the meaning of the DSGVO. Responsibility for data protection-compliant operation must be guaranteed by the respective provider. The integration of these plug-ins by us takes place in the way of the so-called two-click method around visitors of our web page in the best possible way to protect.

  1. a) Facebook

Our website uses social media plugins from Facebook to personalize their use. For this we use the „LIKE“ or „PART“-button. This is an offer from Facebook.

When you access a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the website.

By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not currently logged on to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.

If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can directly associate your visit to our website with your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the „LIKE“ or „SHARE“ button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on Facebook and displayed to your Facebook friends.

Facebook may use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and demand-oriented design of Facebook pages. To this end, Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles, e.g. to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the advertisements displayed to you on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide other services associated with the use of Facebook.

If you do not want Facebook to associate the information collected through our website with your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the data protection information (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/) of Facebook.

When you visit our pages, the plug-in establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook 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 contents 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, as the provider of the pages, we have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted or of their use by Facebook. For more information, please see Facebook’s Privacy Policy at http://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php.

Twitter receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the Twitter „tweet button“ while logged into your Twitter account, you can link the contents of our pages on your Twitter profile. This allows Twitter to associate the visit of our pages with your user account. We would like to point out that, as the provider of the pages, we are not aware of the content of the data transmitted or how it is used by Twitter.

If you do not want Twitter to associate your visit to our pages, please log out of your Twitter account.

The plug-ins are marked with an Instagram logo, for example in the form of an „Instagram camera“.

When you access a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Instagram’s servers. Instagram transfers the content of the plugin directly to your browser and integrates it into the page. This integration informs Instagram that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have an Instagram profile or are not currently logged in to Instagram.

This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to an Instagram server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged in to Instagram, Instagram can immediately associate your visit to our website with your Instagram account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the „Instagram“ button, this information is also transmitted directly to an Instagram server and stored there.

Xing is operated by XING AG, Dammtorstraße 30, 20354 Hamburg, Germany.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the controller and on which a Xing component (Xing plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Xing component to download a representation of the corresponding Xing component from Xing.

This information is collected by the Xing component and assigned to the respective Xing account of the person concerned by Xing. If the person concerned presses one of the Xing buttons integrated on our website, for example the „Share“ button, Xing assigns this information to the personal Xing user account of the person concerned and stores this personal data.

Xing receives information via the Xing component that the person concerned has visited our website whenever the person concerned is logged in to Xing at the same time as accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the person concerned clicks on the Xing component or not.

7 PayPal Privacy Policy as a payment method

PayPal is an online payment service provider. Payments are processed via so-called PayPal accounts, which are virtual private or business accounts. In addition, PayPal offers the option of processing virtual payments via credit cards if a user does not have a PayPal account. A PayPal account is managed via an email address, which is why there is no classic account number. PayPal makes it possible to initiate online payments to third parties or to receive payments. PayPal also acts as a trustee and provides buyer protection services.

The purpose of data transmission is to process payments and prevent fraud. The controller will provide PayPal with personal data, especially if there is a legitimate interest in the transfer. Personal data exchanged between PayPal and the controller may be transferred by PayPal to credit reference agencies. The purpose of this transmission is to verify identity and creditworthiness.

PayPal may pass on personal data to affiliated companies and service providers or subcontractors if this is necessary to fulfil contractual obligations or if the data is to be processed on behalf of PayPal.

The person concerned has the option to revoke his/her consent to the handling of personal data with PayPal at any time. A revocation does not affect personal data that must be processed, used or transmitted for contractual payment processing.

in accordance with Art. 18 DSGVO, to restrict the processing of your personal data if you dispute the accuracy of the data, if the processing is unlawful but you refuse to delete the data and we no longer need the data, but if you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or if you have filed an objection to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 DSGVO;

  1. deletion of data

pro aurum deletes the data after expiration of the legal storage obligations § 257 Abs.1 Handelsgesetzbuch (HGB), § 147 Abgabenordnung (AO). If the data are not subject to the aforementioned regulations, they will be deleted if storage is no longer necessary for their intended purpose.

Data protection for applications

We process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is especially the case if you send us your application documents electronically. If an employment relationship is established, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions.

If no employment contract is concluded, the application documents will be deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that there are no other legitimate interests of pro aurum in the way of deletion. Another legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

  1. right of objection

If your personal data are processed on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f DSGVO, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO, provided that there are reasons for this which arise from your particular situation or the objection is directed against direct advertising. In the latter case, you have a general right of objection, which we will implement without specifying a particular situation.

If you wish to exercise your right of revocation or objection, simply send an e-mail to info@proaurum.de.

12 Data security

We use the most common SSL (Secure Socket Layer) method in connection with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser. Usually this is a 256 bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. Whether a single page of our website is transmitted in encrypted form is indicated by the closed display of the key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser.

We also use suitable technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
