Description and extent of data processing
Our website allows subscribing to a newsletter free of charge. It informs you regularly about new products, events, fairs and other FIDLOCK related news. Therefore, the data from the input screen will be transmitted to us.
The following data will be collected:
- E-mail address (required specification)
- First and last name (optional specification)
- Company name (optional specification)
- Region and accordingly time zone (optional specification)
Additionally, the following Data will be collected during the registration: Date and time of the registration.
For statistical purposes, for the recognition of reading habits and the personalization of the content, it will be recorded if and at what time the Newsletter is opened and which links are clicked.
To process the data, your consent will be obtained during the registration procedure by a so-called double-opt-in-process and this privacy statement will be referred to. The double-opt-in-process means that you will receive an e-mail after the registration, asking you to confirm your subscription. This confirmation is required to verify whether the owner of an e-mail address was the one who registered for the newsletter.
We use the Google service reCaptcha to determine whether a person or a computer makes a specific entry in our contact or newsletter form. Google uses the following information to determine if you are a human being or a computer: IP address of the terminal device you are using, the website you are visiting and on which the captcha is integrated, the date and duration of the visit, the identification data of the browser and operating system type used, Google account if you are logged in to Google, mouse movements on the reCaptcha areas and tasks for which you must identify images. The legal basis for the described data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. There is a legitimate interest on our part in this data processing to ensure the security of our website and to protect us from automated input (attacks).
Legal foundation of data processing
The legal foundation for the data processing after the registration for our newsletter and after receiving the user’s consent is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f General Data Protection Regulation.
Purpose of date processing
The user’s e-mail address is collected for the sole purpose of sending the newsletter.
The collection of other personal data during the registration process prevents the misuse of the services or the used e-mail address.
For statistical purposes, for the recognition of reading habits and the personalization of the content, it will also be recorded if and at what time the Newsletter is opened, and which links are clicked.
The data (e.g. opening- and click-rates) will be erased as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose they were collected. The other data collected during the registration process will be deleted a week after unsubscribing and/or the revoking one’s consent, provided legal regulations or other justified interests don’t conflict with the deletion according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. In such a case, the processing of the data will be limited to the purpose of fending off claims. The same applies to personal data collected during the registration process of users who started the double-opt-in-process without completing it. Deletion of the data can be individually requested any time if previous consent is confirmed concurrently.
Possibility of objection and rectification
The subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled by the user at any time. For this purpose, each newsletter contains a corresponding link. This also enables the revocation of consent for the storage of collected personal data during the registration process. Moreover, cancelling the subscription, the revocation of consent, as well as the objection of storage are possible by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org .
