Data protection declaration

We are very pleased about your interest in our company. LevelApp's management attaches great importance to data protection. It is possible to use the LevelApp website without providing any personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to take advantage of special services offered by our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.

.

The processing of personal data, for example the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always in accordance with the basic data protection regulation and in compliance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to LevelApp. By means of this privacy policy, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, this data protection declaration informs affected persons about their rights.

As the data controller, LevelApp has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

1. definitions

LevelApp's privacy policy is based on the terms used by the European Directive and Regulation Giver when the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO) was issued. Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. In order to ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.

  • f) Pseudonymisation

    Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the need for additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

  • (g) controller or data controller

    responsible person or controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union law or by the law of the Member States, the controller or the specific criteria for his or her designation may be laid down by Union law or by the law of the Member States.

However, authorities which may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation mandate under Union or national law shall not be considered as recipients.

    .
  • j) Third

    third party means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or the processor, are authorized to process the personal data.

3. Cookies

The LevelApp web pages use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored on a computer system via an Internet browser.

.

Numerous websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters that can be used to assign Internet pages and servers to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the Internet pages and servers visited to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified by the unique cookie ID.

.

Through the use of cookies, LevelApp can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the setting of cookies.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimised in the interest of the user. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognise the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to enter his or her access data each time he or she visits the website, because this is done by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in the online shop. The online shop remembers the articles that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.

.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, it is possible that not all functions of our website can be used to their full extent.

4. collection of general data and information

LevelApp's website collects a number of general data and information every time a data subject or automated system accesses the website. This general data and information is stored in the server's log files. The following can be recorded: (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information which serve to prevent danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information, LevelApp does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. This information is rather required to (1) deliver the contents of our website correctly, (2) optimize the contents of our website as well as the advertising for it, (3) ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) to provide law enforcement agencies with the information necessary for prosecution in the case of a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated by LevelApp both statistically and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company, in order to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data in the server log files is stored separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned.

.

5. contact possibility via the internet site

Due to legal regulations, the LevelApp website contains information that enables quick electronic contact with our company as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the data controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject is automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted voluntarily by a data subject to the controller are stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data is not disclosed to third parties.

6. routine deletion and blocking of personal data

The controller shall process and store personal data relating to the data subject only for the time necessary to achieve the purpose for which the data are stored or where provided for by the European Directives and Regulations or by any other law or regulation to which the controller is subject.

    Remotely, the data subject has the right to be informed whether personal data have been transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. If this is the case, the data subject shall also have the right to obtain information on the appropriate safeguards in connection with the transfer.

    .

    If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of access, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.

  • c) Right of rectification

    Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European legislator, to request the immediate rectification of incorrect personal data concerning him.

    If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of rectification, he or she may at any time contact a member of the staff of the controller.

  • d) Right of cancellation (right to be forgotten)

    Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain from the controller the immediate erasure of personal data relating to him/her, where one of the following reasons applies and where the processing is not necessary:

    • The personal data has been collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which it is no longer necessary.
    • The data subject withdraws the consent on which the processing was based under Article 6(1)(a) of the DPA or Article 9(2)(a) of the DPA, and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
    • The data subject lodges an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the Block Exemption Regulation and there are no legitimate legitimate grounds for processing, or the data subject lodges an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) of the Block Exemption Regulation.
    • The personal data were processed unlawfully.
    • The deletion of personal data is necessary to comply with a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject.
    • The personal data was collected in relation to the information society services offered in accordance with Art. 8 Paragraph 1 of the DS-GVO.

    If one of the above reasons applies and a data subject wishes to have personal data stored at LevelApp deleted, he/she can contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The LevelApp employee will ensure that the request for deletion is complied with immediately.

    If personal data has been made public by LevelApp and our company as the responsible party is obliged to delete the personal data in accordance with Art. 17 Para. 1 of the DS-GVO, LevelApp will take reasonable measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and implementation costs, to inform other data controllers who process the published personal data that the data subject has requested that these other data controllers delete all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data, unless the processing is necessary. The LevelApp employee will take the necessary steps in individual cases.

  • e) Right to limit processing

    Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European legislator, to obtain from the controller the restriction of the processing if one of the following conditions is met:

    .
    • The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period of time that allows the person responsible to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
    • The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses to have his personal data deleted and instead requests that the use of his personal data be restricted.
    • The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data subject needs them in order to exercise or defend his rights.
    • The data subject has lodged an objection to the processing in accordance with Article 21 (1) of the DPA and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh those of the data subject.

    If one of the above conditions is met and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored at LevelApp, he/she can contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee of LevelApp will arrange for the restriction of the processing.

  • f) Right to data transferability

    Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to receive the personal data concerning him/her which have been made available to a controller by the data subject in a structured, common and machine-readable format. He/she also has the right to have these data communicated to another controller without hindrance by the controller to whom the personal data have been made available, provided that the processing is based on the consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter a DPA or Art. 9 para. 2 letter a DPA or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter b DPA, and provided that the processing is carried out with the aid of automated procedures, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

    .

    furthermore, when exercising their right to data transferability in accordance with Art. 20 Paragraph 1 of the DS-GVO, the data subject has the right to obtain that personal data be transferred directly from one person responsible to another, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.

  • (g) Right of appeal

    Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European legislator, to object at any time, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her carried out pursuant to Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DPA. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

    In the event of an objection, LevelApp will no longer process the personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling reasons for processing that are worthy of protection and outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or unless the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

    If LevelApp processes personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such marketing. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is connected with such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to LevelApp processing for the purposes of direct marketing, LevelApp will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

    In addition, the data subject has the right to object, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data relating to him or her carried out at LevelApp for the purposes of scientific or historical research or for statistical purposes, in accordance with Art. 89, paragraph 1, of the DPA, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.

    .

    To exercise the right to object, the data subject may contact any LevelApp employee or any other employee directly. The data subject is also free to exercise his or her right of objection in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures involving technical specifications.

    .
  • h) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling

    Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, as granted by the European Directives and Regulations, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or significantly affects him or her in a similar way, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is authorised by Union or national legislation to which the controller is subject and that such legislation provides for adequate safeguards of the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) is taken with the explicit consent of the data subject.

    If the decision is (1) necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller or (2) with the explicit consent of the data subject, LevelApp will take reasonable measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person from the data controller, to present his or her point of view and to challenge the decision.

    If the data subject wishes to exercise rights relating to automated decisions, he or she may at any time contact a member of staff of the controller.

  • i) Right of revocation of a data protection consent

    Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right to withdraw his or her consent to the processing of personal data at any time, as granted by the European Directive and Regulation Giver.

Each time a user accesses one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the IT system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Facebook component to download a representation of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook. A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins is available at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=de_DE. As part of this technical process, Facebook is informed which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.

.

If the person concerned is logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes which specific page of our website the person concerned is visiting with every visit to our website by the person concerned and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the person concerned. If the person concerned clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the "Like" button, or if the person concerned makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the person concerned and stores this personal data.

.

Facebook will always receive information via the Facebook component that the person concerned has visited our website if the person concerned is logged in to Facebook at the same time as he or she is accessing our website; this takes place regardless of whether the person concerned clicks on the Facebook component or not.

9. privacy policy on the use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)

The data controller has integrated the component Google Analytics (with anonymization function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data about which website a person concerned came to a website from (so-called referrers), which sub-pages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize an internet page and for the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

The data controller uses the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned is shortened and anonymised by Google if the access to our Internet pages is from a member state of the European Union or from another state that is a party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

Each time our website is visited, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

.

Farthermore, the data subject has the possibility to object to the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and related to the use of this website as well as to the processing of this data by Google and to prevent such a collection.

12 Legal basis of the processing

Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which makes it necessary to process personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company was injured and his or her name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be disclosed to a doctor, hospital or other third party. The processing would then be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the above legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).

13. legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f of the DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

14. duration for which the personal data is stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfilment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.

.

15. legal or contractual provisions making the personal data available; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of not providing the data

We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a person concerned provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him/her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be concluded. Before the person concerned makes personal data available, he or she must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences would be if the personal data were not provided.
