How do we collect your data?

On the one hand, your data is collected by you providing it to us. Other data is collected automatically by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is mainly technical data (e.g. Internet browser, operating system or time of page view). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.

 

What do we use your data for?

Some of the data is collected to ensure error-free provision of the website. Other data may be used to analyze your user behavior and to provide our services

 

Cookies

We use so-called cookies with our internet presence. Cookies are small text files or other storage technologies that are placed and stored on your end device by the Internet browser you use. These cookies are used to process certain information about you on an individual basis, such as your browser or location data or your IP address.

 

This processing makes our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. The legal basis for this processing is a contract, insofar as these cookies data are processed for the purpose of initiating or executing a contract. If the processing does not serve to initiate or execute a contract, our legitimate interest lies in improving the functionality of our website. In this case, the legal basis is our legitimate interest.

 

If you wish to learn more about cookies in general and how they work, please visit All About Cookies. If you want to read more about the cookies we use, please refer to our Cookie Policy.

 

Server data

For technical reasons, in particular to ensure a secure and stable Internet presence, data is transmitted by your Internet browser to us or to our web space provider. These so-called server log files include the type and version of your internet browser, the operating system, the website from which you accessed our website (referrer URL), the website(s) of our website that you visit, the date and time of the respective access as well as the IP address of the internet connection from which our website is used.

 

The data collected in this way is temporarily stored, but not together with other data about you. This storage takes place on the legal basis of our legitimate interest. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality and security of our website. The data is deleted again after seven days at the latest, unless further storage is required for evidence purposes. Otherwise, the data is exempt from deletion in whole or in part until the final clarification of an incident.

 

Contact forms

If you send us inquiries via our contact form, your data from the inquiry form, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

 

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

 

The data you entered in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

 

Text to Speech Demo

If you use the Text to Speech Demo available on our website, your data, will be processed by us for the purpose of providing you a demonstration of our technology and text to speech services. The processing of the data entered in the Text to Speech Demo is thus based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) and our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). You can revoke your consent at any time, however this will render your use of our Text to Speech Demo as no longer possible.

 

Direct marketing

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data in the context of direct marketing measures is either your consent or our legitimate interest in marketing and promoting our courses and services. The purpose of processing your personal data in the context of direct marketing measures is to send information, offers and, if applicable, to promote sales.

 

Your personal data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected; this is the case in particular upon receipt of the revocation or objection. You can revoke your consent at any time for the future or object to the processing of your personal data in the context of direct marketing measures at any time for the future.

 

Contractual Relationship

In order to establish or implement the contractual relationship with our customers, it is regularly necessary to process the personal master, contract, and payment data provided to us. We also process customer and prospect data for evaluation and marketing purposes. This processing is carried out on the legal basis of our legitimate interest and serves our interest in further developing our offer and informing you specifically about our offers. Further data processing may take place if you have consented or if this serves the fulfillment of a legal obligation.

 

Commercial and business services

We process data of our contractual and business partners, e.g., customers and interested parties in the context of contractual and comparable legal relationships as well as related measures and in the context of communication with contractual partners (or pre-contractual), e.g., to answer inquiries.

 

We process this data to fulfill our contractual obligations, to secure our rights and for the purposes of the administrative tasks associated with this information as well as for business organization. We only disclose the data of the contractual partners to third parties within the scope of the applicable law to the extent that this is necessary for the aforementioned purposes or for the fulfillment of legal obligations or with the consent of the contractual partners (e.g., to participating telecommunications, transport, and other auxiliary services as well as subcontractors, banks, tax and legal advisers, payment service providers or tax authorities).

 

Unless otherwise specified the purposes of processing are Contractual performance and service, contact requests and communication, office and organizational procedures, administration, and response to requests, visit action evaluation, interest-based and behavioral marketing. And, the Legal bases are Contractual performance and pre-contractual inquiries, Legal obligation, and our Legitimate interests.

 

Technical services

We process the data of our customers and clients in order to enable them to select, purchase or commission the selected services or works as well as associated activities and to pay for and deliver them or to execute or provide them. The required information is identified as such in the context of the order, purchase order or comparable contract conclusion and includes the information required for the provision of services and billing as well as contact information.

 

Unless otherwise specified the purposes of processing are Contractual performance and service, contact requests and communication, office and organizational procedures, administration, and response to requests, visit action evaluation, interest-based and behavioral marketing. And, the Legal bases are Contractual performance and pre-contractual inquiries, Legal obligation, and our Legitimate interests.

 

Data transfer to payment service providers

In order to fulfill the contract, we pass on your data to the company commissioned with the payment, insofar as this is necessary for the payment of our services. Depending on which payment method you select, we pass on the payment data collected for this purpose to the credit institution commissioned with the payment and, if applicable, to payment service providers commissioned by us or to the selected payment service provider. In some cases, the selected payment service providers also collect this data themselves. In this case, the privacy policy of the respective payment service provider applies.The legal basis for the data processing is contract.

 

Payment services

We integrate payment services from third-party companies on our services. When you make a purchase from us, your payment data (e.g. name, payment amount, account details, credit card number) is processed by the payment service provider for the purpose of payment processing. For these transactions, the respective contract and data protection provisions of the respective providers apply. The payment service providers are used on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR (contract processing) and in the interest of a smooth, convenient and secure payment process (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). Insofar as your consent is requested for certain actions, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR is the legal basis for data processing; consents can be revoked at any time for the future.

 

The data processed by the payment services include the payment data mentioned above. The information is necessary to carry out the transactions. However, the customer data entered is only processed by the payment service providers and stored by them. Furthermore, we cannot exclude that data of the payment service provider is transmitted to credit agencies. This transmission is intended, for example, to check identity and creditworthiness. In this regard, we refer to the terms and conditions and privacy policies of the respective payment service providers.

 

Encrypted payment transactions

If there is an obligation to transmit your payment data to us (e.g. account number in the case of direct debit authorization) after the conclusion of a fee-based contract, this data is required for payment processing.

 

Payment transactions via the common means of payment (Visa/MasterCard, direct debit) are made exclusively via an encrypted SSL or TLS connection. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

 

With encrypted communication, your payment data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

 

Data processing for the purpose of fraud prevention and optimization of our payment processes

Where applicable, we provide our service providers with further data, which they use together with the data necessary for the processing of the payment as our processors for the purpose of fraud prevention and optimization of our payment processes (e.g. invoicing, processing of contested payments, accounting support). This serves to protect our legitimate interests in our protection against fraud or in efficient payment management, which outweigh our interests in the context of a balancing of interests.

 

Legal defense and enforcement of our rights

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data in the context of legal defense and enforcement of our rights is our legitimate interest. The purpose of processing your personal data in the context of legal defense and enforcement of our rights is the defense against unjustified claims and the legal enforcement and assertion of claims and rights.

 

Your personal data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. The processing of your personal data in the context of legal defense and enforcement is mandatory for legal defense and enforcement of our rights. Consequently, there is no possibility for you to object.

 

Online Meetings

We may use video teleconferencing software programs to conduct our online meetings and various types of data are processed when using an online platform for meetings. The scope of the data depends on the information you provide before or during participation in an online meeting. If you contact us in electronic form, we store and process the data you have provided us with. The legal basis for this is our legitimate interest in effective customer communication in accordance with your consent and, insofar as it concerns an inquiry to enter into or fulfill a contract, also contract. You can request information about the purpose of processing, origin and, if applicable, recipients of your personal data from us free of charge at any time.

 

YouTube

We have integrated components of YouTube on this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips free of charge and other users to view, rate and comment on them, also free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete film and TV shows, but also music videos, trailers or videos made by users themselves can be accessed via the Internet portal.

 

The operating company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

 

By each call of one of the individual pages of this website, and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective YouTube component to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube.

Within the scope of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google receive knowledge of which specific sub-page of our website is visited by you.

 

If you are is logged into YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognizes which specific sub-page of our website you are visiting by calling up a sub-page that contains a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account.

 

Wix

We use the services of the homepage provider Wix.com Ltd, Namal 40, 6350671 Tel Aviv, Israel. Hereinafter referred to as "wix.com". The registered office in Europe: Wix.com Luxembourg S.a.r.l., 5 Rue Guillaume Kroll, L - 1882 Luxembourg. Wix.com collects two types of data: personal data (which can be used to uniquely identify an individual) and non-personal data (which is not used for identification purposes). Wix.com collects such information about our users and visitors, as well as users of users and others who provide it to us. Wix.com may also collect, solely for and in the interest of our users, similar data related to visitors and users of our users' web sites or services. Wix.com collects and uses data to provide our services and make them better and safer, as well as to contact our visitors, users and job applicants, and to comply with legal requirements applicable to Wix.com.

 

Wix.com may store and process personal data in the United States, Europe, Israel or other jurisdictions - either itself or through our affiliated companies and service providers. The data storage providers with whom Wix.com works are contractually obligated to protect your data. Wix.com may also collect, process and store such data in other locations, including the United States.

 

Wix may collect and process data about our users. We do so solely on behalf of and at the direction of our users. Our users are solely responsible for their users of users data, including for its legality, security and integrity. Wix has no direct relationship with users of users.

 

We may share the data of our visitors, users and their users of users with various third parties, including certain service providers, law enforcement agencies and application developers. In doing so, the data may only be shared in accordance with this policy.

 

Duration of storage and routine deletion of personal data

We process and store your personal data only for the period of time required to fulfill the purpose of storage or if this has been provided for, in laws or regulations. After the purpose has ceased to exist or has been fulfilled, your personal data will be deleted or blocked.

 

In the case of blocking, deletion will take place as soon as legal, statutory or contractual retention periods do not conflict with this, there is no reason to assume that deletion would impair your interests worthy of protection and deletion would not cause a disproportionately high expense due to the special nature of the storage.

 

Data transfer to third countries

If we use service providers in third countries, we take additional measures to ensure an adequate level of data protection for the transfer of personal data in accordance with Art. 44 of the GDPR and thus ensure that the transfer is generally permissible and that the special requirements for a transfer to a third country are met (e.g. by concluding standard contracts and additional guarantees, supplementary technical and organizational measures such as encryption or anonymization).

 

SSL encryption

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption procedures (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

 

Social Media

The data you enter on our social media pages, such as comments, videos, pictures, likes, public messages, etc. are published by the social media platform and are not used or processed by us for any other purpose at any time. We only reserve the right to delete content if this should be necessary. Where applicable, we share your content on our site if this is a function of the social media platform and communicate with you via the social media platform. The legal basis is our legitimate interest. The data processing is carried out in the interest of our public relations and communication.

 

If you wish to object to certain data processing over which we have an influence, please contact us. We will then examine your objection. If you send us a request on the social media platform, we may also refer you to other secure communication channels that guarantee confidentiality, depending on the response required. You always have the option of sending us confidential inquiries to our address stated in the imprint.

 

As already stated, where the social media platform provider gives us the opportunity, we take care to design our social media pages to be as data protection compliant as possible. With regard to statistics that the provider of the social media platform makes available to us, we can only influence these to a limited extent and cannot switch them off. However, we make sure that no additional optional statistics are made available to us.

 

Data processing by the operator of the social media platform

The operator of the social media platform uses web tracking methods. The web tracking can also take place regardless of whether you are logged in or registered with the social media platform. As already explained, we can unfortunately hardly influence the web tracking methods of the social media platform. We cannot, for example, switch this off.

 

Please be aware: It cannot be ruled out that the provider of the social media platform uses your profile and behavioural data, for example to evaluate your habits, personal relationships, preferences, etc. We have no influence on this. In this respect, we have no influence on the processing of your data by the provider of the social media platform.
