3.1 Hosting

The hosting services used by us serve the provision of the following services: Infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, security services as well as technical maintenance services which we use for the purpose of operating the website.

In doing so, we or our hosting provider process inventory data, contact data, content data, contract data, usage data, meta data and communication data of customers, interested parties and visitors to this website on the basis of our legitimate interests in the efficient and secure provision of our website in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 f) DSGVO in conjunction with Art. 28 DSGVO.

3.2 Access data

We collect information about you when you use this website. We automatically collect information about your usage patterns and your interaction with us, and we register information about your computer or mobile device. We collect, store and use data about each access to our website (so-called server log files). This includes access data:

 

  • Name and URL of the retrieved file
  • Date and time of the retrieval
  • transmitted data volume
  • message of successful retrieval (HTTP response code)
  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system
  • Referer URL (i.e. the previously visited page)
  • Websites that are accessed by the user’s system through our Web site
  • Internet service provider of the user
  • IP-address and the requesting provider

 

We use this protocol data without allocation to your person or other profiling for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operating, security and optimisation of our website, but also for anonymous recording of the number of visitors to our website (traffic) and for the scope and type of use of our website and services, as well as for billing purposes to measure the number of clicks received from cooperation partners. This information enables us to provide personalized and location-based content and analyze traffic, troubleshoot and correct errors, and improve our services.

This is also our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 f) DSGVO.

We reserve the right to subsequently check the log data if there is a justified suspicion of illegal use on the basis of concrete indications. We store IP addresses in the log files for a limited period of time if this is necessary for security purposes or for the provision of services or the billing of a service, e.g. if you use one of our offers. After the order process has been aborted or after payment has been received, we delete the IP address if it is no longer required for security purposes. We also store IP addresses if we have the concrete suspicion of a criminal offence in connection with the use of our website. We also store the date of your last visit as part of your account (e.g. when registering, logging in, clicking links, etc.).

3.3 Cookies

We use so-called session cookies to optimize our website. A session cookie is a small text file that is sent by the respective servers when you visit a website and stored temporarily on your hard drive. This file as such contains a so-called session ID, which can be used to assign various requests from your browser to the joint session. This enables your computer to be recognised when you return to our website. These cookies are deleted when you close your browser.

To a small extent, we also use persistent cookies (also small text files that are stored on your end device) that remain on your end device and enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit. These cookies are stored on your hard disk and are deleted automatically after the specified time. Their lifespan is 1 month to 10 years. This enables us to present our services to you in a more user-friendly, effective and secure manner and, for example, to display information on the site that is specifically tailored to your interests.

Our legitimate interest in the use of cookies pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 f) DSGVO is to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure.

The following data and information are stored in the cookies:

 

  • Log-in information
  • Language settings
  • Entered search terms
  • Information about the number of visits to our website and the use of individual functions of our website.

When the cookie is activated, it is assigned an identification number and your personal data is not assigned to this identification number. Your name, IP address or similar information that would allow the cookie to be associated with you will not be placed in the cookie. On the basis of cookie technology, we only receive pseudonymised information, such as which pages of our website have been visited, which videos have been viewed, etc. We do not use cookies to identify you.

You can set your browser so that you are informed in advance when cookies are set and can decide on a case-by-case basis whether you wish to exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general, or whether cookies should be prevented completely. This can severely restrict the functionality of the website.

3.4 Data to fulfill our contractual obligations

We process personal data which we require to fulfil our contractual obligations, such as name, address, e-mail address, products ordered (e.g. Vidlis), invoice and payment data. The collection of this data is necessary for the conclusion of the contract.

The data will be deleted after the warranty periods and statutory retention periods have expired. Data linked to a user account (see below) will in any case be retained for the duration of the account’s management.

The legal basis for the processing of this data is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 b) DSGVO, because this data is required so that we can fulfil our contractual obligations towards you.

3.5 User account

You can create a user account on our website. If you wish to do so, we need the personal data requested at login. When you log in later, only your email or user name and the password you have chosen will be required.

For the new registration we collect master data (e.g. name, address), communication data (e.g. e-mail address) and access data (user name and password).

In order to ensure your proper registration and to prevent unauthorized registrations by third parties, you will receive an activation link by e-mail after your registration to activate your account. Only after successful registration do we permanently store the data you have transmitted in our system.

Once you have created a user account, you can have it deleted by us at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs. A message in text form to the contact data mentioned under number 1 (e.g. e-mail, fax, letter) is sufficient for this. We will then delete your stored personal data unless we need to store it for the processing of orders or due to legal storage obligations.

The legal basis for processing this data is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 a) DSGVO.

3.6 Newsletter

To register for the newsletter, the data requested during the registration process is required. The registration for the newsletter will be logged. After registration, you will receive a message at the specified email address asking you to confirm your registration (“double opt-in”). This is necessary to prevent third parties from registering with your email address.

You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time and thus cancel the newsletter.

We store the registration data as long as they are needed for the dispatch of the newsletter. We store the logging of the registration and the dispatch address as long as there was an interest in the proof of the originally given consent, as a rule these are the limitation periods for civil claims, therefore a maximum of three years.

The legal basis for sending the newsletter is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 a) in conjunction with Art. 7 DSGVO in conjunction with § 7 Para. 2 No. 3 UWG. Legal basis for the logging of the registration is our legitimate interest in the proof that the dispatch was made with your consent.

You can cancel the registration at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs. A notification in text form to the contact data mentioned under point 1 (e.g. e-mail, fax, letter) is sufficient for this. Of course, you will also find a unsubscribe link in every newsletter.

3.7 Video recommendations

We regularly send you video recommendations by e-mail, independent of the newsletter. In this way, we send you information about new videos on Vidli.me that you might be interested in based on your last visits to us. We strictly adhere to the legal requirements. You can object to this at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs. A message in text form to the contact data mentioned under point 1 (e.g. e-mail, fax, letter) is sufficient for this. Of course, you will also find a unsubscribe link in every e-mail.

The legal basis for this is the legal permission according to Art. 6 Abs. 1 S. 1 f) DSGVO iVm § 7 Abs. 3 UWG.

3.8 E-mail contact

If you contact us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail), we will process your details to process the enquiry and in the event that follow-up questions arise.

If the data processing is carried out to carry out pre-contractual measures, which take place at your request, or, if you are already our customer, to carry out the contract, the legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 b) DSGVO.

We only process further personal data if you consent to this (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 a) DSGVO) or if we have a legitimate interest in processing your data (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 f) DSGVO). A legitimate interest lies, for example, in replying to your e-mail.

Your personal data will be transmitted encrypted. This applies to your orders and also to the customer login. We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) coding system, but point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.

To secure your data, we maintain technical and organisational security measures in accordance with Art. 32 DSGVO, which we continually adapt to the state of the art.

Furthermore, we do not guarantee that our services will be available at certain times; disruptions, interruptions or failures cannot be ruled out.

8 Data passed on to third parties, no data transferred to non-EU countries

In principle, we use your personal data only within our company.

If and to the extent that we involve third parties in the performance of contracts (such as logistics service providers), these personal data will only be provided to the extent that the transmission is necessary for the corresponding service.

In the event that we outsource certain parts of the data processing (“order processing”), we contractually oblige order processors to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of the data protection laws and to guarantee the protection of the rights of the person concerned.
No data will be transmitted to entities or persons outside the EU outside the case referred to in this declaration in paragraph 4 and this is not planned.
