(1) technically necessary processing of data by PLAZAMEDIA GmbH and our service providers for the operation of the website     

Cookies

We use cookies to make your visit to our website more attractive. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your terminal device and enable us to recognise your browser, among other things. Cookies enable us to improve the comfort and quality of the services provided on the website.

Cookies are also used to analyse the use of the website, in particular online advertising, in anonymised form, to store general preferences of a user in the cookie placed on the end device and to provide the respective user with special, interesting offers and services on the website based on their preferences.

Some of the cookies we use are deleted again after the end of your browser session, i.e. after you close your browser (so-called "session cookies"). Other cookies remain on your terminal device during their respective validity period (see below) and enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit.

When calling up our website, we inform users by means of an information banner about the use of cookies (technically necessary / essential cookies and tracking cookies) and have technically set up the consent required under data protection law for the setting of cookies for which consent is necessary. With the exception of technically necessary or essential cookies, consent must always be given in advance for cookies to be set on your end device. The user is also referred to this data protection declaration via the information banner.

In the following, we provide you with an overview of the cookies used, their validity period and the respective opt-out options. In addition, we would like to point out that you can adjust your cookie settings at any time and revoke your consent for the future at any time.

Technically necessary / essential cookies:

We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some elements of our website require that the calling browser can be identified even after a page change.

In the following technically necessary cookies, the closing of the cookie banner is stored:

  • Cookieconsent_status: Stores the interaction with our cookie banner (validity: 1 year).

These cookies are transmitted to us each time a page is accessed, do not contain any personal data and are therefore not used for personal identification.

Analysis - Cookies:

We use cookies on our website that allow us to analyse the surfing behaviour of our users. In this way, search terms entered, the frequency of page views or the use of website functions can be analysed. The user data collected in this way is made anonymous by a technical precaution. Therefore, it is no longer possible to allocate the data to the user calling up the website. This anonymised data is not stored together with the users' personal data.

The following analysis cookies are set on your terminal device:

  • _pk_id: Differentiation user and sessions (validity: 13 months),
  • _pk_ref: Detection Traffic Source (validity: 6 months),
  • _pk_ses: Visitor identification (validity: 30 minutes).

Analysis cookies are used to improve the quality of our website and its content. Through the analysis cookies, we learn how the website is used and can thus constantly optimise our offer to the respective user. For a description of the cookies, how they work, their purpose and the options for objecting to them, please refer to the information provided under "Matomo (Piwik)".

The legal basis for the processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies is Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR. The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for statistical or marketing purposes (tracking cookies) on the basis of your consent is Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR.

You can restrict or deactivate the use of cookies in your browser settings at any time. Furthermore, at the end of this data protection declaration, we offer you the option to change the settings made via our cookie banner at any time or to revoke your given consent for the future. It is also possible to use our offers without cookies. However, this may lead to certain restrictions in the functions and user-friendliness of our offers on the website.

 

Server protocols

During the mere informative use of the website, we only collect the personal data that your browser automatically transmits to our server on which our web pages are located (hereinafter referred to as "web server") and that are technically necessary for the purpose of displaying our website to you and ensuring its stability and security.

We have commissioned the company Hetzner Online GmbH (Industriestrasse 25, 91710 Gunzenhausen, hereinafter "Hetzner") for the hosting and technical provision of our website. We have concluded the required data protection agreement with Hetzner for commissioned processing in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. According to this agreement, Hetzner undertakes to ensure the necessary protection of your data and to process it exclusively on our behalf in accordance with the applicable data protection regulations. You can find more information about Hetzner on the website: https://hetzner.com/.  

The web server automatically recognises certain data such as

  • Proxy IP address (client IP address of the gateway)
  • Date and time of access
  • The operating system used
  • Browser type and version
  • Use protocols
  • URL of the document page the user came from
  • Choice of language
  • http status (return code) and
  • Amount of data in bytes

The data is stored on Hetzner servers hosted and certified in Germany. Hetzner uses this information for the specified purpose on our behalf as well as its own for service optimisation. Hetzner does not use the data independently or pass it on to third parties. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.

There is a legitimate interest on our part for the temporary storage of the data and the server logs. The legal basis for the data processing is therefore Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR.

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the delivery of the website to the respective end device used by the user. For this purpose, the user's IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session.

The storage of all the information listed above in log files (server logs) is additionally carried out to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimise the website and to ensure the necessary security of our information technology systems. We regularly evaluate the server logs, which are made available to us by Hetzner in anonymised form, for statistical purposes. The data has no personal reference. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

These purposes also constitute our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR.

The server logs are deleted again no later than 52 days after they have been collected by Hetzner, unless there is a suspicion of misuse or external attack or other system security error.

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in server logs is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility for the user to object.

 

(2) Processing of data by PLAZAMEDIA GmbH and our service providers for website analysis and statistical processing of user behaviour

Matomo (Piwik)

We use the software "Matomo" (www.matomo.org) on our website, a service of the provider InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand (hereinafter "Matomo") to analyse the surfing behaviour of our users. The software sets cookies on your computer, which can be used to recognise your browser. When sub-websites of our website are accessed, the following data is stored in cookies set by Matomo (see section Cookies):

  • the anonymised proxy IP address (client IP address of the gateway, shortened by the last byte,
  • the sub-website accessed and the time of access,
  • the page from which the user accessed our Interview Suite (referrer),
  • which browser with which plugins, which operating system and which screen resolution is used,
  • the length of time spent on our website,
  • the pages that are accessed from the sub-website called up.

The software is set in such a way that the IP addresses are not stored completely, but 2 bytes of the IP address are masked (e.g.: 192.168.xxx.xxx). In this way, it is no longer possible to assign the shortened IP address to the calling computer. By anonymising the IP address, we take into account the interest of users in the protection of personal data. This data is never used to personally identify the user of our website and is not merged with other data. The data collected with Matomo is stored on our servers hosted and certified in Germany at Hetzner. It is not passed on to third parties.

The data is deleted when it is no longer needed for our purposes. In our case, this is after 180 days.

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

We use the analysis and tracking technologies or third-party technologies of Matomo (Piwik) on the basis of your consent via our cookie banner (Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR):

  • For the purpose of conducting data analysis.
  • For the purpose of KPI reporting within our annual reports and to our partners.
  • For the purpose of statistically recording usage and conducting data analyses in order to optimise the usability, performance and content of our website.

For the purpose of debugging technical errors. You can revoke your consent to data processing via our cookie banner at any time for the future. By changing the settings at the end of this privacy policy, you prevent technical measures from being carried out and cookies from being set.

You can also restrict or deactivate the use of cookies in your browser settings at any time. It is also possible to use our offers without cookies. However, this may lead to certain restrictions in the functions and user-friendliness of our offers on the website.

 

(3) Processing of data by PLAZAMEDIA GmbH and our service providers to optimise our website

Our website uses the functions of the Openstreetmap Foundation, 132 Maney Hill Road, Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, B72 1JU, United Kingdom Great Britain (hereinafter "OpenStreetMaps"), in order to provide geographical information about our location for visitors to this website.
