Scope of Application
With this data protection declaration, users receive information about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of their data by the responsible provider.
The legal framework for data protection is provided by the Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz – BDSG), the Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz – TMG) and the current DSGVO of 24 May 2016.
Collection of general information
With every access to this offer, information is automatically collected by us or the web space provider. This information, also known as server log files, is of a general nature and does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.
Among other things: Name of the website, file, date, data volume, web browser and web browser version, operating system, the domain name of your Internet provider, the so-called referrer URL (the page from which you accessed our website) and the IP address.
Without these data it would not be technically possible to deliver and display the contents of the website. In this respect, the collection of data is absolutely essential. In addition, we use the anonymous information for statistical purposes. They help us to optimize our range of products and technology. We also reserve the right to subsequently check the log files in case of suspicion of illegal use of our offer.
Provision of chargeable services
We request additional data to enable us to provide services that are subject to a charge. This applies, for example, to payment details.
To ensure the security of your data during transmission, we work with encryption methods (such as SSL) via HTTPS, which reflect the current state of the art.
If comments or other contributions are written and published on our website, we store the IP address, the user name and the time of creation. These data are collected for security reasons, since the provider can be prosecuted for illegal content (prohibited propaganda, insults, etc.), even if they were created by third parties. In such a case, the information is used to determine the identity of the author.
If you subscribe to our newsletter, we will use the information you provide exclusively for this purpose or to inform you of the circumstances relevant to this service or registration. We do not pass these data on to third parties.
A valid (valid) e-mail address is required to receive the newsletter. The date on which you order the newsletter is saved. This data serves us as proof of misuse if an external e-mail address is registered for the newsletter. In order to ensure that an e-mail address is not misused by third parties on our mailing list, we work in compliance with the law using the so-called “double opt-in” procedure. Within the framework of this procedure, the order of the newsletter, the sending of the confirmation e-mail and the receipt of the registration confirmation are recorded.
You have the possibility at any time to revoke your consent to the storage of the data, your e-mail address and their use for the newsletter dispatch. For the revocation we provide you in each newsletter and on the website a link. You also have the option of informing us of your wish to cancel using the contact options mentioned in this document.
If you contact us via the online form or by e-mail, we will store the information you provide in order to answer your inquiry and ask possible follow-up questions. You agree to be contacted by Odego GmbH.
Integration of third-party services and content
Our offer may include content, services and performances of other providers. These include maps provided by Google Maps, videos from YouTube and graphics and images from other websites. In order for this data to be called up and displayed in the user’s browser, the transmission of the IP address is absolutely necessary. The providers (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) thus perceive the IP address of the respective user.
Although we make every effort to use only third-party providers who only need the IP address to deliver content, we have no influence on whether the IP address may be stored. In this case, this process is used for statistical purposes, among other things. If we have knowledge that the IP address is stored, we point this out to our users.
