The scope of personal data processing

We generally only process the personal data of our users to the extent necessary to provide a functioning website as well as to the extent necessary for our content and services. The personal data of our users is generally only processed after the user has given consent. An exception is made on those cases in which obtaining prior consent is not feasible for practical reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

Legal basis for processing personal data

If we obtain the consent of a data subject to process his/her personal data, the legal basis for such processing is article 6, paragraph 1(a) EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The legal basis for processing personal data that must be processed in fulfillment of a contract to which the data subject is a contractual party is article 6, paragraph 1(b) GDPR. This also applies for processing that is required in order to carry out measures prior to entering into a contract.

If processing personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, the legal basis is article 6, paragraph 1(c) GDPR.

If the processing is necessary for the purposes of safeguarding the legitimate interests pursued by the company and the interests, fundamental rights, and freedoms of the data subject do not override the aforementioned interest, article 6, paragraph 1(f) GDPR is the legal basis. 

Collection of general information

General information is collected each time you access our website. This information (server log files) includes, for example, your web browser, the domain name of your Internet service provider, your operating system, and similar information. Such information does not allow us to personally identify you. However, the collection of this information is necessary for technical reasons in order to provide the content of our website correctly. This information becomes available every time you use the Internet.

Server log files

We collect and automatically save information in so-called server log files that your browser automatically sends to us. This information includes:

• Browser type and browser version

• Operating system being used

• Referrer URL

• Host name of the accessing computer

• Time of the server query

• IP address

We do not combine this data with other data sources. 

The basis for the data processing is article 6, paragraph 1(b) GDPR, which permits the processing of data in fulfillment of a contract or to carry out measures prior to entering into a contract.

Cookies

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files stored in the user’s Internet browser or by the Internet browser on the user’s computer system. If a user accesses a website, a cookie may be stored on the user’s operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic string of characters that make it possible to clearly identify the user’s browser each time he/she accesses the website.

Cookies cannot be used to start programs or transmit viruses to a computer. Cookies and the information they contain make it easier for you to navigate our website and help to correctly display website content.

Under no circumstances is the collected data shared with third parties. Without your consent, we will not establish a link with personal data.

Comment function

When users leave comments on our blog posts, the date and time they wrote the comment as well as the username they have selected will be displayed in addition to the comment itself. This is for our security, as we may be prosecuted for unlawful content, even if such content was posted by one of our users.

Comments and the associated data (e.g. IP address) remain on our website until the content for which the comment was left is completely deleted or the comment must be deleted for legal reasons. The basis for saving your comments is your consent (article 6, paragraph 1(a) GDPR). You may revoke your consent at any time by sending us an e-mail stating this wish; doing so does not require use of a form. The lawfulness of any data processing that has already occurred remains unaffected by the revocation.

Newsletter2Go

We use Newsletter2Go to send newsletters. Newsletter2Go is a service of Newsletter2Go GmbH, Nürnberger Strasse 8, 10787 Berlin, Germany. The data you enter in order to subscribe to a newsletter is saved on the servers of Newsletter2Go in Germany.

With the help of Newsletter2Go, we can analyze our newsletter campaigns. For example, we can tell whether a message containing a newsletter was opened. In this way, we can identify important and less important links. We can also see whether certain actions were carried out after the newsletter was opened.

If you do not want Newsletter2Go to carry out these analyses, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. There is an unsubscribe link in the message containing the newsletter. You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on our website.

Detailed information about how Newsletter2Go works can be found at the following link: https://www.newsletter2go.de/features/newsletter-software/.

Your data is processed on the basis of your consent to receive the newsletter (article 6, paragraph 1(a) GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. The lawfulness of any data processing that has already occurred remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data we store about you in order to provide you with the newsletter is retained by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter; after you unsubscribe, it is deleted from our servers and the servers of Newsletter2Go. Other data remains unaffected.

Further details about the data protection provisions at Newsletter2Go can be found at https://www.newsletter2go.de/features/datenschutz-2/.

We have contractually obligated Newsletter2Go to handle the data of our customers carefully and not to disclose such data to third parties. This contract can be viewed at https://www.newsletter2go.de/docs/datenschutz/ADV_Muster_Newsletter2Go_GmbH_latest_Form.pdf?x48278.

The data entered in our contact form is processed solely on the basis of your consent (article 6, paragraph 1(a) GDPR). You may revoke this consent at any time by sending us an e-mail stating this wish; doing so does not require use of a form. To do this, send an e-mail revoking the consent to info@berlintxl.de. The lawfulness of any data processing that has already occurred remains unaffected until the revocation goes into effect.

The data you submit in the contact form remains with us until you revoke your consent to have it stored, you request that we delete it, or the purpose for which the data was stored no longer applies. Mandatory statutory provisions – for example, statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.

Google Analytics uses cookies (text files) that are stored on your computer and that make it possible to analyze your use of the website. The information gained from cookies is generally transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there. Because we have activated IP anonymization on our websites, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states that are party to the European Economic Area before the data is transmitted to the United States. It will only be transmitted to the United States in full and shortened there in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information in order to assess your use of the website, to compile reports about website activities, and to provide other services related to the use of the website and the use of the Internet to the operator of the website. The IP address transmitted from your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be combined with other data from Google.

You can use the corresponding settings in your browser software to prevent the storage of cookies; note that in this case, you may not be able to fully use all of the functions of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting data (including your IP address) related to your use of the website produced as a result of the cookie as well as Google’s processing of this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: 

Browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics.

In addition to or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can also prevent Google Analytics from tracking you on our website by installing an opt-out cookie on your device. To do so, please click here. This will prevent Google Analytics from collecting data for this website and for this browser in the future as long as the cookie remains installed on your browser. More information about the use of user data at Google Analytics can be found in the Google privacy policy: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.

Google Maps

This website uses an interface to connect to the Google Maps map service. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States of America. Doing so requires the storage of your IP address. This information is generally transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there. We have no control over the transmission of this data.

Google Maps is used because of the need to display our website in an attractive manner and to make it easy to find the locations we indicate. This represents a legitimate interest pursuant to article 6, paragraph 1(f) GDPR.

This represents a legitimate interest pursuant to article 6, paragraph 1(f) GDPR.

In order to display the fonts, your browser connects to Google’s servers. As a result, Google is informed that our website has been accessed with your IP address.

Right to data portability

You are entitled to have data that we process on the basis of your consent transferred to a third party. The data will be transferred in a standard and machine-readable format. If you want to have your data transferred directly to another controller, this must be technically feasible.

Changes to our data protection provisions

We reserve the right to modify these data protection provisions from time to time so that they meet the latest legal requirements at all times, or in order to implement changes to our services in our data privacy statement, for example, if new services are introduced.

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Some data processing procedures can only be carried out with your express consent.
