Privacy Policy FOOD SERVICE


We take the protection of the personal data of our users very seriously and adhere strictly to the rules of the applicable national and European data protection laws. Similarly, the data collected is protected to the best of our ability by technical and organisational measures in our IT security policy.


This statement is intended to give you an overview of how we guarantee this protection and what kind of data is collected for what purpose.

1. Name and contact details of the person responsible for processing and contact details of the data protection officer

Name and contact details of the person responsible for data protection: Deutscher Fachverlag GmbH, Mainzer Landstr. 251, 60326 Frankfurt am Main.

If you have any questions that this data protection declaration could not answer, or if you would like more detailed information on any point, please contact us at any time at sabine.neuf@dfv.de or by post (Deutscher Fachverlag GmbH, foodservice, Mainzer Landstr. 251, 60326 Frankfurt am Main).

You can contact the company data protection officer at: datenschutz@dfv.de or by post at Deutscher Fachverlag GmbH, company data protection officer, Mainzer Landstr. 251, 60326 Frankfurt am Main.

2. Automatic data processing on this Internet site
When you call up our Internet site, information which your browser transmits to us is automatically stored in our so-called "server log files". These are:

- IP address of the accessing computer,
- time of the server request,
- browser type/ -version,*
- operating system used,*
- referrer URL (the previously visited page).*

*The data is only stored by us if your browser sends us this data.

The server log files can be used for security purposes, e.g. to avoid overloading the servers, and to ensure the capacity utilisation of the servers and their stability. The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is also necessary to enable the website to be delivered to your computer. These purposes also constitute our legitimate interest in data processing. The legal basis for the temporary storage of this data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose of their collection. As the collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files are absolutely necessary for the operation of the website, you therefore have no possibility to object.

3. Contacting

When you contact us (e.g. by contact form, e-mail, telephone or via social media), we process your data for the purpose of processing the contact request and its handling. If you have given us your consent for this, the legal basis for the processing of this data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. Otherwise, the legal basis for the processing of this data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, in particular in the event that you send us your data by e-mail. Insofar as you wish to work towards the conclusion of a contract by contacting us, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO represents an additional legal basis.

If we maintain a contact form on our website, the data you enter in the input mask will be transmitted to us and stored: Name, e-mail address. The data will be used exclusively to answer your enquiries. This is also our legitimate interest in processing your personal data. Unless this is explicitly stated in the contact form, the data will not be passed on to third parties. In addition, we record your IP address and the time of dispatch.

Your details may also be temporarily stored in a customer relationship management system ("CRM system") or comparable enquiry organisation.

Subject to statutory retention periods, the data will be deleted as soon as we have finally processed your inquiry.

4. Services requiring registration - Newsletter, Whitepaper

4.1 General

If you wish to use the offers and services (personalised or chargeable) offered on the website, we may need further information from you in order to provide these services and for billing purposes.

This includes in particular your name, your (valid) e-mail address as well as further information (address, telephone number, etc.), which allows us to check that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided, for example, or that the owner of the e-mail address agrees to receive the services in question, in order to provide the services requested by you accordingly and ultimately to be able to bill you properly. The entry of a valid e-mail address is required so that we can prevent abusive registrations - for example, for newsletters. Accordingly, we use the so-called "Double-Opt-In-Procedure", in which you will receive a so-called e-mail confirming your registration after entering your e-mail address on our websites and you have to verify your e-mail address by clicking on a corresponding link. Furthermore, you may be able to provide us with further data - beyond the data required for the provision of services (e.g.: industry, professional group, age, etc.) - on a voluntary basis, for example in the corresponding form fields, during the registration/login process.

The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO, if you have given your consent. If the registration serves the fulfilment of a contract or the implementation of pre-contractual measures, the legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO.

Data processing is also carried out on the basis of our justified economic interest in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO for the purpose of ensuring smooth and easy processing of your order, efficient handling of any queries, tailoring our offers to suit your needs, product information for advertising purposes and customer care.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose of their processing. Even after the end of the contract, there may be a contractual or legal requirement to store personal data of the contractual partner. In this case there is no right to deletion, but possibly to restriction of data processing.

You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent or object to further receipt. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter either at the end of each newsletter or can otherwise use one of the contact options listed above.

4.2 Webinars

You have the opportunity to register for webinars on our website. When you register for a webinar, we collect certain data to enable you to participate in the webinar.

The provision of a webinar involves a high level of economic expenditure. For this reason, you can only obtain the participation in a webinar in return for the provision of various personal data in connection with an advertising consent. Please refer to the registration form and the scope of the declaration of consent that you provide when registering for the webinar in question for the specific types of data that must be provided.

In this context we also process your data for advertising purposes. The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO, if you have given your consent. The provision of your data is not required by law or contract. Failure to provide it will result in your not being able to participate in the webinar.

Under certain circumstances, we may also transfer your data to advertising partners for use for promotional purposes. If and to whom such a transfer takes place, please refer to the scope of the declaration of consent you give when registering for the webinar.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose of their processing, at the latest, however, after revocation of your consent, unless this is opposed by a legitimate interest in further storage.

For the provision of the webinars, we use LogMeIn, Inc., 333 Summer Street, Boston, MA 02210 USA, as a processor to record the registration and to host the webinar.

LogMeIn's Privacy Policy: https://www.logmeininc.com/de/legal/privacy

5. Online Store

We operate an online store on our website (for "FS+", e-papers and subscriptions). As part of an order process, we process your data for the purpose of providing contractual services, billing, product delivery and customer service.

5.1 Order process

We offer you the opportunity to place your order as a guest.

You must enter your data completely anew for each order. If you order our products via guest access, we will collect your first and last name, your valid e-mail address, your address and industry affiliation and, depending on the payment option you have chosen, your bank details.

5.2 Processing purpose, storage period

This data is processed for the purpose of identifying you as our contractual partner and for processing your order. The data processing is carried out in response to your order and is required in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b DSGVO for the aforementioned purposes for the fulfilment of the order and the pre-contractual measures.

The personal data collected by us for the order will be stored until the expiry of the statutory warranty period and automatically deleted thereafter, unless we are obliged to store the data for a longer period of time in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. c DSGVO due to tax and commercial law storage and documentation obligations or you have consented to storage beyond this in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

Furthermore, during the ordering process you can voluntarily provide further data - beyond the data required to complete the order (e.g.: company, telephone number or similar).

6.1 cookies

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in the Internet browser or by the Internet browser on the computer system. If you call up a website, a cookie may be stored on your operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic string of characters that enables the browser to be uniquely identified when you return to the website.

We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. These cookies help to make a website usable by enabling basic functions such as page navigation and access to secure areas of the website.

The legal basis for the use of technically necessary cookies for purposes of contract fulfilment is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, otherwise Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The purpose of use in these cases is to simplify the use of websites for you. Some functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. For these, it is necessary that the browser is recognised even after a page change. Herein lies our legitimate interest in data processing.

By changing the settings in your Internet browser, you can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies. Already stored cookies can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies for our website are deactivated, it is possible that not all functions of the website can be used to their full extent.

6.2 Legal basis and purpose of storage for the following services

We also use services on our website that enable an analysis of your surfing behaviour. The legal basis for the processing of personal data by the services listed below is, if you have given us your consent, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. For some data processing, however, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO forms the legal basis. This serves the purpose of improving the quality of our website and its contents. This enables us to find out how the website is used and thus to constantly optimise our offer. These purposes also include our legitimate interest in processing personal data. The specific legal basis for the respective data processing can be found in the cookie settings on the website. The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected.

You can change your data protection settings or withdraw your consent at any time by clicking on the "Cookie settings" link.

6.3 Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Analytics uses cookies that enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

By using the function "_anonymizeIp()", the last two digits of the IP address are not transmitted to Google Analytics, so the user cannot be identified.

On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities for us and to provide further services related to website and internet use. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf.

Privacy Policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy

Opt-Out: You may object to the collection of data by using a Google browser plugin. You can also prevent the storage of cookies on your computer by adjusting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent.

6.4 Google Doubleclick

We use the online marketing process Google "Doubleclick" on our website, which is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. This service allows us to place ads on the Google advertising network, including in search results, videos and web pages. These ads are displayed to you in real-time and are based on your potential interests. This allows us to better target ads within our online offering. For the "remarketing" that takes place in this way, code is executed immediately by Google when you visit our and other websites on which the Google advertising network is active, and invisible (re)marketing tags are incorporated into the website. (Re)marketing tags are invisible graphics or code, also known as "web beacons". This places an individual cookie on your device. This records which websites you have visited, what content you are interested in and which offers you have clicked on. Furthermore, the cookie contains technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, visiting time and other information about the use of our website.

Furthermore, your IP address is also recorded. This is, however, shortened within the EU and the EEA and only in exceptional cases is it transmitted in full to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google may also combine the above-mentioned information with information from other sources, so that ads tailored to your interests can be displayed when you visit other websites.

Your data is processed pseudonymously within the Google advertising network. No personal data such as e-mail addresses, company names or telephone numbers are stored. However, if you have expressly allowed Google to process your data without using a pseudonym, you are specifically identifiable to Google. The information collected by Google about your use of this website is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Privacy Policy :
https://policies.google.com/privacy
Opt-Out: You can prevent participation in this online marketing procedure in various ways, but we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent:
a) by deactivating cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to accept cookies from the domain www.googleadservices.com domain, https://www.google.de/settings/ads
b) via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices
c) by permanently deactivating them in your Firefox, Internetexplorer or Google Chrome browser under the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin,

6.5 Google Maps

Our website uses Google Maps to display interactive maps. Google Maps is a map service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. By using Google Maps, information about the use of this website, including your IP address, can be transmitted to Google in the USA. If you call up a website of our Internet presence that contains Google Maps, your browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of Google. The map content is transmitted by Google directly to your browser and integrated by it into the website.

Privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy
Opt-Out: If you do not agree to this processing of your data, you have the option of deactivating the Google Maps service and thus preventing the transfer of data to Google. To do this, you must deactivate the Java Script function in your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you will not be able to use Google Maps and possibly other components, or only to a limited extent.

6.6 Google Fonts

We use "Google Fonts" on our website, a service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Fonts allows us to use external fonts. To do this, the required Google font is loaded from your web browser into the browser cache when you visit our website. This is necessary so that your browser can display our texts in a visually improved way. If your browser does not support this function, a standard font from your computer is used for display. These fonts are integrated by a server call, usually a Google server in the USA. This tells the server which of our websites you have visited. The IP address of the browser of your end device is also saved by Google.

Further information on data protection can be found in Google's data protection declaration: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de&gl=de

Opt-Out: You can set your browser so that the fonts are not loaded from the Google servers (e.g. by installing add-ons such as NoScript or Ghostery for Firefox.) If your browser does not support the Google fonts or if you prevent access to the Google servers, the text will be displayed in the default font of the system.

Further information on Google Web Fonts can be found at https://fonts.google.com/,

6.7 Use of the measurement procedure of INFOnline GmbH

Our website uses the measurement procedure ("SZMnG") of INFOnline GmbH(https://www.INFOnline.de) to determine statistical parameters on the use of our offers. The aim of the usage measurement is to statistically determine the number of visits to our website, the number of website visitors and their surfing behaviour - on the basis of a uniform standard procedure - and thus to obtain values that are comparable throughout the market.

For all digital services that are members of the Informationsgemeinschaft zur Feststellung der Verbreitung von Werbeträgern e.V. (IVW - http://www.ivw.eu) or participating in the studies of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Online-Forschung e.V. (AGOF - http://www.agof.de), the usage statistics are regularly updated by AGOF and the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Media-Analyse e.V. (agma - http://www.agma-mmc.de) and published with the performance value "Unique User" as well as by the IVW with the performance values "Page Impression" and "Visits". These ranges and statistics can be viewed on the respective websites.

6.7.1 Legal basis for processing

The measurement by means of the SZMnG measurement procedure by INFOnline GmbH is carried out with justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

The purpose of the processing of personal data is the compilation of statistics and the creation of user categories. The statistics serve the purpose of being able to trace and document the use of our offer. The user categories form the basis for the alignment of advertising material or advertising measures in line with the interests of the user. In order to market this website, it is essential to measure usage in order to ensure comparability with other market participants. Our legitimate interest results from the economic usability of the knowledge resulting from the statistics and user categories and the market value of our website - also in direct comparison with websites of third parties - which can be determined by means of the statistics.

Furthermore, we have a legitimate interest in making the pseudonymised data available to INFOnline, AGOF and IVW for the purpose of market research (AGOF, agma) and for statistical purposes (INFOnline, IVW). Furthermore, we have a legitimate interest in making the pseudonymised data available to INFOnline for the further development and provision of advertising material in line with our interests.

6.7.2 Type of data

INFOnline GmbH collects the following data, which, according to the EU-DSGVO, are personal data:
  • IP address: On the Internet, every device needs a unique address, the so-called IP address, to transmit data. Due to the way the Internet works, it is technically necessary to store the IP address, at least for a short time. The IP addresses are shortened by 1 byte before any processing and are only processed further in an anonymised form. There is no storage or further processing of the unabridged IP addresses.
  • A randomly generated client identifier: To recognize computer systems, the range processing uses alternatively either a third party cookie, a first party cookie, a "local storage object" or a signature, which is created from various automatically transmitted information of your browser. This identifier is unique to a browser as long as the cookie or local storage object is not deleted. A measurement of the data and subsequent assignment to the respective client identifier is therefore also possible when you call up other websites that also use the measurement method ("SZMnG") of INFOnline GmbH.

The validity of the cookie is limited to a maximum of 1 year.

6.7.3 Use of data

The INFOnline GmbH measurement system used on this website determines usage data. This is done in order to collect the performance values of page impressions, visits and clients and to form further key figures from this (e.g. qualified clients). Furthermore, the measured data is used as follows:
  • A so-called geolocalisation, i.e. the allocation of a website call to the place of the call, is carried out exclusively on the basis of the anonymised IP address and only up to the geographical level of the federal states/regions. Under no circumstances can any conclusion be drawn from the geographical information obtained in this way as to the actual location of a user.
  • The usage data of a technical client (e.g. a browser on a device) are merged across websites and stored in a database. This information is used for the technical estimation of age and gender socioinformation and is passed on to the service providers of AGOF for further coverage processing. Within the scope of the AGOF study, social characteristics are technically estimated on the basis of a random sample which can be assigned to the following categories: Age, gender, nationality, professional activity, marital status, general household data, household income, place of residence, Internet use, online interests, place of use, user type.

6.7.4 Data storage period

The complete IP address is not stored by INFOnline GmbH. The abbreviated IP address is stored for a maximum of 60 days. The usage data in connection with the unique identifier is stored for a maximum of 6 months.

6.7.5 Passing on of data

The IP address as well as the abbreviated IP address will not be passed on. For the preparation of the AGOF study, data with client identifiers will be forwarded to the following AGOF service providers:


6.7.6 Right of objection


If you do not wish to participate in the measurement, you can object under the following link: https://optout.ioam.de

To guarantee exclusion from the measurement, it is technically necessary to set a cookie. If you delete the cookies in your browser, it will be necessary to repeat the opt-out process under the above link.

Further information on data protection in the measurement procedure can be found on the website of INFOnline GmbH(https://www.infonline.de), which operates the measurement procedure, the data protection website of AGOF(http://www.agof.de/datenschutz) and the data protection website of IVW(http://www.ivw.eu).

6.13 VG Wort

We use "session cookies" from VG Wort, Untere Weidenstraße 5, 81543 Munich, to measure access to texts in order to determine the probability of copying. Session cookies are small units of information that a provider stores in the main memory of the visitor's computer. A randomly generated unique identification number, a so-called session ID, is stored in a session cookie. In addition, a cookie contains information about its origin and the period of storage. Session cookies cannot store any other data. These measurements are carried out by Kantar GmbH, Landsberger Straße 284, 80687 Munich, Germany, according to the "Scalable Central Measurement Method" (SZM). They help to determine the copying probability of individual texts for the remuneration of legal claims of authors and publishers. Many of our pages are equipped with JavaScript calls, which we use to report accesses to the Verwertungsgesellschaft Wort (VG Wort). In this way, we enable our authors to participate in the distributions of VG Wort, which ensure the statutory remuneration for the use of copyrighted works in accordance with § 53 UrhG. In this context, our website and our mobile web offer use Kantar GmbH's "Scalable Central Measurement Method" (SZM) for the determination of statistical parameters to determine the copy probability of texts. Anonymous measured values are collected in the process. The access count measurement uses alternatively a session cookie or a signature, which is created from various automatically transmitted information of your browser, to recognize computer systems. IP addresses are automatically truncated by the last three digits immediately at the time of recording and are encrypted one-way using state-of-the-art encryption. The procedure was developed in strict compliance with data protection regulations. The sole aim of the procedure is to determine the copying probability of individual texts. You will not receive any advertising via the system.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data by the services described above is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The exclusive purpose is the recording of royalty-relevant uses of our websites for the purpose of distribution to the authors of works on the pages used by VG Wort. These purposes also include our legitimate interest in the processing of personal data.

6.14 YouTube

Videos from the "YouTube" platform of the provider Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, are integrated on our website.

In doing so, we use the "extended privacy mode" option provided by YouTube. When you visit a page that has embedded YouTube video, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited. According to YouTube, in "enhanced privacy mode", your data - in particular device-specific information including the IP address - is only transmitted to the YouTube server in the USA if you actively click on the video.

If you are logged into YouTube at the same time, this information is associated with your YouTube member account. You can prevent this by logging out of your member account before visiting our website.

There you can log in with your usage data. Through this, your user account on Facebook is linked to our service. To our knowledge, Facebook receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you have a user account on Facebook and are registered, Facebook can assign the visit to your user account. Even if you are not registered with Facebook or have not logged in, it is possible that Facebook will find out and store your IP address and, if necessary, other identifying features.

For the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of 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://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/

6.18 Soundcloud

Our podcasts are stored and played on the platform "Soundcloud", offered by SoundCloud Limited, Rheinsberger Str. 76/77, 10115 Berlin, Germany. For this purpose we integrate so-called Soundcloud widgets into our website. These are playback software with which users can play the podcasts. Soundcloud can measure which podcasts are listened to and to what extent and process this information pseudonymously for statistical and business management purposes. For this purpose, cookies may be stored in the users' browsers and processed for the purpose of creating user profiles, e.g. for the purpose of issuing advertisements which correspond to the potential interests of the users. In the case of users who are registered with Soundcloud, Soundcloud may assign the audio information to their profiles.

6.19 Vimeo

Our website incorporates plug-ins from the Vimeo video portal of Vimeo, Inc. 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA. Each time you access a page that offers one or more Vimeo video clips, a direct connection is established between your browser and a Vimeo server in the USA. Information about your visit and your IP address is stored. Through interactions with the Vimeo plugins (e.g. clicking the start button), this information is also transmitted to Vimeo and stored there.

Privacy policy: https://vimeo.com/privacy
Opt-Out: You can prevent Vimeo from loading by changing your browser settings (disabling JavaScript and iFrames). If you have a Vimeo user account and do not want Vimeo to collect information about you through this website and link it to your membership information stored at Vimeo, you must log out of Vimeo before visiting this website.

6.20 Instagram plug-ins and content

We bind functional and content elements (e.g., images, videos, or text and buttons) from Instagram Inc, 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA (parent company: Facebook, 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA or if you are located in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland). These functional and content elements are obtained from Instagram's servers.

The display of this content and functionality requires Instagram to process the IP address of users in order to send the content to the browser.

Instagram may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as "web beacons") for statistical or marketing purposes. The "pixel tags" can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user's device and may contain technical information about the browser and operating system, the websites to be linked, the time of visit and other details about the use of our online offer, as well as being linked to such information from other sources.

6.21 Push notifications

You can register to receive so-called push notifications. For this purpose, we use the "CleverPush" offer, which is operated by CleverPush GmbH, Nagelsweg 22, 20097 Hamburg, Germany ("CleverPush").

Through our push notifications, you will regularly receive information about current news from the gastronomy industry, exclusive content such as interviews or analyses, information about new issues and much more.

To subscribe to the push notifications, you need to confirm your browser or terminal device's request to receive the notifications. This process is documented and stored by CleverPush. For this purpose, the time of login and a push token or device ID is stored. This data serves on the one hand to be able to send you the push notifications and on the other hand as proof of your registration. The legal basis for this processing is your consent and thus Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

CleverPush also evaluates our push notifications statistically. CleverPush can thus detect whether and when our push notifications were displayed and clicked on. This allows us to determine which push notifications are of interest to recipients, in order to match future messages to the presumed interests of all recipients and thus increase interest in our offer. In addition, we store the main topic (e.g. business, sports, etc.) next to the push token or device ID. We also use this information to send push notifications to the corresponding subscribers who are in their presumed interests. The legal basis for the processing is in each case Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. A push token or device ID is only assigned to a specific person if we should be legally obliged to do so, to defend against claims against us if this is required as evidence, and to prosecute any violations of the law.

You can revoke your consent to the storage and use of your personal data to receive our push notifications at any time with effect for the future. Furthermore, you can object to the use of personal data as described above at any time on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Please revoke your consent for this purpose. You can revoke your consent in the setting provided for this purpose for receiving push notifications in the settings of your device or browser.

Your data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose for which they were collected. Your data will therefore be stored for as long as your subscription to our push notifications is active.

To speed up the retrieval of content (e.g. images) and to defend against attacks, CleverPush uses the offers of cloudflare.com, an offer of Cloudflare, Inc., 101 Townsend Street Suite 200, San Francisco, CA 94107 USA, as part of an order processing.

CleverPush does not store any data on the Cloudflare servers that contain personal data, but only general content such as texts or images. When you access this content, the device you are using connects to Cloudflare and the IP address of the device you are using is processed.

On our platform we also offer you the possibility to communicate the contents of our pages via social media. The following options are offered:
  • Twitter
  • Facebook

The respective buttons with the symbols of the providers merely represent links to the pages of the external service providers. A data collection or transfer only takes place after you have clicked on the corresponding link and are on the respective website or have registered with the respective service. In this context, the exchange of data between us and the respective service provider is limited to the extent necessary for this communication option to function.

If you have given us your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 letter a or Art. 9 para. 2 letter a DSGVO, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time. The revocation does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.

You also have the right to complain to the supervisory authority responsible for us (The Hessian Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information, Gustav-Stresemann-Ring 1, 65189 Wiesbaden).

In these cases you are obliged to provide the personal data. Otherwise, the conclusion of contracts may not be possible.
