In the following, we use the simplified term “we” when we refer to this website “gosign.de”.

Abstract

The protection of personal data is one of our central goals – consequently, this also applies to our website. That is why we only collect personal data that is technically unavoidable when you simply visit our website. It’s that simple. 

However, if you wish to contact us for the purpose of initiating business, you will of course provide us with personal data, which we will process exclusively for this purpose.

The details are explained below.

What data is processed?

Legal basis for data processing

In all cases where we cannot avoid collecting and processing personal data from you, for example in order to be able to offer you our website and the associated services, we do so on the basis of the following legal bases:

Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO)
– for the performance of contracts (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR
– on the basis of a balancing of interests (Art. 6(1) lit. f) GDPR)
– to comply with a legal obligation (Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR)

In connection with the respective processing, we refer to these terms so that you can classify the basis on which we process personal data.

If personal data is processed on the basis of consent processed by you, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future.

If we process data on the basis of a balancing of interests, you as the data subject have the right, taking into account the provisions of Art. 21 GDPR to objectthe processing of personal data.

Access data

When you visit our website, personal data is processed in order to display the content of the website on your device.

In order for the pages to be displayed in your browser, the IP address of the end device you are using must be processed. Further information about the browser on your device is also required.

We are also obliged under data protection law to guarantee the confidentiality and integrity of the personal data processed with our IT systems. For this purpose and in this interest, the following data is logged on the basis of a balancing of interests:

– IP address of the calling computer (for a maximum of 7 days)

– Operating system of the calling computer
– Browser version of the calling computer
– Name of the retrieved file
– Date and time of retrieval
– Amount of data transferred
– Referring URL

The IP address will be deleted from all systems used in connection with the operation of this website after a maximum of 7 days, after which we will no longer be able to establish a personal link from the remaining data.

The data is also used to identify and rectify errors on the website.

Purposes of the processing of personal data

We process the aforementioned data for the operation of our website and for the fulfillment of contractual obligations towards our customers or the protection of our legitimate interests.

Voluntary information

If you voluntarily provide us with data, e.g. in forms, and this data is not required for the fulfillment of our contractual obligations, we process this data on the legitimate assumption that the processing and use of this data is in your interest.

Cookies

We have already excluded everything that would require a cookie when designing this website. That is why we do not set any cookies in your browser, and that is why you will not see a cookie banner on our website;

The cookies that we do not set include so-called technically necessary cookies, which do not require your explicit consent. You will therefore have to do without certain convenience functions on this website. This includes the language selection you have made. You may therefore have to reset your language preference (DE/EN) from time to time because our website does not save your setting.

Analysis 

We use an analysis program called Matomo to measure the reach and success of ordinary activities to optimize our website and to measure the success of campaigns that we occasionally run. 

As the IP is displayed in Matomo in abbreviated form, we cannot establish any personal reference to our visitors in Matomo.

We also use Matomo without cookies. This means that we cannot recognize returning visitors, for example.

Personal tracking does not take place.

We operate Matomo on our own server in Germany.

Scripts

We have taken great care to ensure that our website, which runs on WordPress, does not contain any plugins or scripts that load external data in your browser.

We use a font on our website that is a Google font. This font is also not loaded from a Google server into your browser at runtime. This would allow Google to track you. We therefore keep the font on our own server.

Data processing in the EU

We operate our website on a server in Germany, which is located in the data center of Timme Hosting GmbH. We have concluded an order processing contract with this company in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR;

Data processing outside the EU

Data processing by contacting us via our contact form

Our contact form is deliberately designed to save data. You can therefore only leave us your name, your e-mail address and your telephone number for the purpose of contacting us or initiating business. 

We do not provide a free text field. This offers us a simple way of preventing spam without having to integrate external services such as ReCaptcha or similar.

If you send us your name, e-mail address and telephone number so that we can get back to you, we will store this data;

At the end of each year, we check whether it is necessary to continue storing this data.

Who receives your data and who passes it on?

The little data that you transmit to us when you visit this website will not be passed on to third parties. In particular, we do not pass it on to advertising networks.

Nevertheless, it is generally possible that our service provider Timme Hosting GmbH, which we use for the secure operation of our website, collects data about your visit that we do not collect ourselves;

We have carefully selected this hosting service provider, in particular for data protection and data security reasons, and have concluded a contract with it for order processing in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR;
