Privacy Policy

As of: January 2021

General inforamtion

Deutsche Telekom AG attaches great importance to the protection of your personal data. It is important to us to inform you about what personal data is collected, how it is used and what options you have in this regard.

Deutsche Telekom is the service provider of the website www.medienabersicher.de/en/ and therefore also the responsible party for data collection.

1. What data is collected, how is it used and how long is it stored?

a) Technical characteristics: When you visit our web pages, the web server temporarily records the domain name or IP- address of your computer, the client's file request (file name and URL), the http response code and the web page from which you visit us.

The logged data is used exclusively for data security purposes, in particular to defend against attempted attacks on our web server (Art. 6 para. 1f DSGVO). They are neither used for the creation of individual user profiles nor passed on to third parties and are deleted after 7 days at the latest. We reserve the right to statistically evaluate anonymized data records.

b) Contact form / e-mail contact:
Contact forms are available on our website, which can be used for electronic contact. If a user takes advantage of this option, the data entered in the input mask is transmitted to us and stored. These data are:
(1) Salutation
(2) Name, first name
(3) e-mail address

At the time the message is sent, the following data is also stored:
(1) Date and time of contact.

For the processing of the data, your consent is obtained during the sending process and reference is made to this privacy policy.

Alternatively, it is possible to contact us via the e-mail address provided. In this case, the user's personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be stored.

The data processing is carried out by a third party selected and monitored by the responsible party in compliance with the legal provisions by way of commissioned data management. By sending the message, the data subject simultaneously declares his/her consent to the transfer of the aforementioned data to the third party named by the operator of this website (= commissioned data manager). The data will be used exclusively for the processing of the conversation.

Purpose of data processing

The processing of personal data from the input masks serves us solely to process the contact. In the case of contact by e-mail, this also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in processing the data.

The other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

Duration of storage
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended and tracking of the respective request is no longer necessary. The conversation is ended when it is clear from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified.

Follow-up is no longer necessary if the conversation took place so long ago that it can be assumed that it is no longer necessary to refer to its content.

Conversations are usually deleted after 24 months if there is no legal obligation to keep records.

c) Ordering system

(3) Postal code, city

(4) e-mail address

(5) Institution

The data processing is carried out by a third party selected and supervised by the responsible party in compliance with the legal provisions by way of commissioned data management. When ordering materials, the data subject simultaneously declares his or her consent to the forwarding of the aforementioned data to ensure shipment.

Purpose of data processing

The information provided by the user is necessary for the processing of the ordering process and the delivery of the order. This includes:

(1) storage of specific compilations of materials.

(2) Organization and implementation of the ordering process

(3) Possibility of contacting and making inquiries regarding the order

(4) E-mail address, telephone number

(5) Institution

This website contains buttons from social media networks (such as Facebook, Google, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Xing or LinkedIn) that you can use to recommend Deutsche Telekom AG offers to your friends and acquaintances.

To ensure that you have full data control, the buttons used only establish direct contact between the respective social network and the visitor when you actively click on the button (one-click solution).

Explanations and definitions
We want you to enjoy using our websites and making use of our products and services. We have an economic interest in this. In order for you to find the products that interest you and for us to be able to design our websites in a user-friendly way, we analyze your usage behavior anonymously or pseudonymously. Within the framework of the legal regulations, we, or companies commissioned by us within the framework of order processing, create usage profiles. It is not possible to draw any direct conclusions about you. In the following, we inform you in general about the different purposes. Via the cookie query that appears when you visit our websites, you have the option of agreeing to or rejecting the use of cookies. Cookies that are required to provide the web service (see explanation above under 1.) cannot be rejected.

a) Necessary cookies
These cookies are necessary for you to navigate through the pages and use essential functions. They enable basic functions, such as order processing in the online store and access to secure areas of the website.

Web analysis through Matomo
We use the open source software tool Matomo (formerly PIWIK) on our website to analyze the surfing behavior of our users. The software sets a cookie on the user's computer (for cookies, see already above). If individual pages of our website are called up, the following data is stored:

(1) Two bytes of the IP address of the user's calling system.
(2) The web page called up
(3) The URL of the website from which the user accessed the accessed website
(4) The subpages accessed from the accessed web page
(5) The time spent on the web page
(6) The frequency with which the web page is accessed
(7) System information of the user

The software runs exclusively on a server in a German data center that is operated specifically for data protection-compliant web analysis. Storage of the users' personal data only takes place there. Data processing is carried out by a third party selected and monitored by the responsible party in compliance with the statutory provisions by way of commissioned data management.

The software is set in such a way that the IP addresses are not stored in full, but 2 bytes of the IP address are masked (ex: 192.168.xxx.xxx). In this way, it is no longer possible to assign the shortened IP address to the calling computer.

The processing of the users' personal data enables us to analyze the surfing behavior of our users. By evaluating the data obtained, we are able to compile information about the use of the individual components of our website. This helps us to continuously improve our website and its user-friendliness. In these purposes also lies our legitimate interest in processing the data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. By anonymizing the IP address, the interest of users in their personal data protection is sufficiently taken into account.

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for our recording purposes. In our case, this is the case after termination of the service offered via the website (i.e., closing the Internet offer).

For more information on the privacy settings of the Matomo software, please see the following link: https://matomo.org/docs/privacy/

c) Services from other companies (independent third-party providers)

On our websites, we have integrated third-party services that provide their services on their own responsibility. When you visit our pages, data is collected using cookies or similar technologies and transmitted to the respective third party. Partly for Telekom's own purposes. The legal basis for these cookies is Art. 6 (1a) DSGVO. To what extent, for what purposes and on what legal basis further processing for the third party provider's own purposes takes place, please refer to the data protection information of the third party provider. You can find the information on the own-responsible third-party providers below.

Facebook
Social media plugins from Facebook are used on our website to make their use more personal. For this purpose, we use the "LIKE" or "SHARE" button. This is an offer from Facebook.

When you call up a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with Facebook's servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser, which then integrates it into the website.

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

If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can directly assign your visit to our website to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking 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 the Facebook pages. For this purpose, 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 assign the data collected via our website to your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.

For the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to Facebook's privacy policy (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/).

Twitter
On our websites, plugins of the short message network of Twitter Inc. (Twitter) are integrated. You can recognize the Twitter plugins (tweet button) by the Twitter logo on our site. An overview of tweet buttons can be found here (https://https://about.twitter.com).

When you call up a page of our website that contains such a plugin, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Twitter server. Twitter thereby 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 content of our pages on your Twitter profile. This allows Twitter to associate the visit to our pages with your user account. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the pages, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Twitter.

If you do not want Twitter to be able to associate the visit to our pages, please log out of your Twitter user account. For more information, please refer to the privacy policy of Twitter (https://twitter.com/privacy).

YouTube
We have integrated YouTube components 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, which is operated by the controller 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. Further information on YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/. Within the scope of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google receive knowledge of which specific sub-page of our website is visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged into YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognizes which specific sub-page of our website the data subject is 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 of the data subject.

YouTube and Google always receive information via the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is simultaneously logged into YouTube at the time of calling up our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on a YouTube video or not.

If you do not want YouTube to assign the data collected via our website directly to your Google account, you must log out of YouTube before visiting our website. The privacy policy published by YouTube, which is available at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.

Vimeo
We use player plug-ins of the video streaming service Vimeo Pro on our website on the basis of Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

On the website, no user data is transmitted to Vimeo without prior consent. Vimeo can only access user data (including the URL of the current page and the IP address of the user) if the user has actively consented to the data transfer.

The data processing is carried out by a third party selected and monitored by the responsible party in compliance with the legal provisions by way of commissioned data management. The legal basis for the processing of the users' personal data is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.
We have integrated components of Vimeo on this website. Vimeo is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips and other users to view them free of charge.

When visiting the teachtoday.de website, a so-called two-click solution is used to play videos via a player plug-in from Vimeo. When the website is first accessed, no data is transmitted to Vimeo. Only after the user has consented to the opt-in procedure on teachtoday.de by clicking on the appropriate button will data (including the URL of the current page and the user's IP address) be transmitted to Vimeo immediately and for each subsequent visit. The user can decide for himself whether he consents to the activation of the videos and thus to the transfer of data. The user can revoke this consent at any time and prevent further data transmission to Vimeo by clicking on the corresponding button on the website (opt-in procedure).

By default, only deactivated images from Vimeo are embedded on the website, which do not establish an automated connection with the servers of Vimeo. Thus, the operator does not receive any data from the user when the websites are called up. Only when the user releases the playback of the videos by clicking on "Permanent Activation" does he give consent for data to be transmitted to Vimeo. In order to save the setting requested by the user, the teachtoday.de website sets a cookie that saves the parameters. No personal data is stored when these cookies are set, they only contain anonymized data for browser customization. Subsequently, the videos are active and can be played by the user. If the user wants to deactivate the automatic loading of the Vimeo videos, he must remove the consent check mark he has set. This will also update the cookie settings.

The privacy policy published by Vimeo, which is available at https://vimeo.com/privacy, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Vimeo.
The operating company of Vimeo is Vimeo, Inc, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.

Cookie Settings: You can revisit your cookie settings (1) at any time to manage your preferences.
YouTube and Google always receive information via the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged into YouTube at the same time as calling up our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on a YouTube video or not.

If you do not want YouTube to assign the data collected via our website directly to your Google account, you must log out of YouTube before visiting our website. The privacy policy published by YouTube, which is available at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.
