1. Recording and processing of data in connection with access over the Internet

When you visit our website, our Web server makes a temporary record of each access and stores it in a log file. The following data are recorded, and stored until an automatic deletion date:

 

  • IP address of the requesting processor
  • Date and time of access
  • id and URL of the downloaded file
  • Volume of data transmitted
  • Indication whether download was successful
  • Data identifying the browser software and operating system
  • Website from which our site was accessed
  • id of your Internet service provider

 

The purpose of recording these data is to allow use of the website (connection setup), for system security, for technical administration of the network infrastructure and in order to optimize our Internet service. The IP address is only evaluated in the event of fraudulent access to the network infrastructure of the taskit GmbH.

Apart from the special cases cited above, we do not process personal data without first obtaining your explicit consent to do so. Pseudonymous user profiles can be created as stated under web analysis (see 6.).

 

2. Orders

If you order igoods via our website, we will use the address data provided only for the purpose of processing your order.

 

3. Use and transfer of personal data

All use of your personal data is confined to the purposes stated above, and is only undertaken to the extent necessary for these. Your data is not disclosed to third parties. Personal data will not be transferred to government bodies or public authorities except in order to comply with mandatory national legislation or if the transfer of such data should be necessary in order to take legal action in cases of fraudulent access to our network infrastructure. Personal data will not be transferred for any other purpose.

 

4. Consent to use data in other contexts

The use of certain services on our website such as newsletter may require prior registration and involves a more substantial processing of personal data, such as longer-term storage of e-mail addresses, user IDs and passwords. We use such data only insofar as it has been sent to us by you in person and you have given us your express prior consent for this use. For example, we request your consent separately in the following cases:

 

4.1 Newsletter

In order to register for a newsletter service provided by the taskit GmbH, we need at least your e-mail address so that we know where to send the newsletter. All other information you supply is on a voluntary basis, and will be only if you give your consent, for example to contact you directly or clear up questions concerning your e-mail address.

As a general rule, we employ the double opt-in method for the registration. In other words, after you have registered for the service and informed us of your e-mail address, you will receive an e-mail in return from us, containing a link that you must use to confirm your registration. Your registration and confirmation will be recorded. The newsletter will not be sent until this has been done. This procedure is used to ensure that only you yourself can register with the newsletter service under the specified e-mail address. You must confirm your registration as soon as possible after receiving our e-mail, otherwise your registration and e-mail address will be erased from our database. Until we receive your confirmation, our newsletter service will refuse to accept any other registration requests using this e-mail address.

You can cancel subscriptions to our newsletter at any time. To do so, either send us an e-mail or follow the link at the end of the newsletter.

 

5. Cookies

We don’t normally use cookies on our website, but in certain exceptional cases we may use cookies which place technical session-control data in your browser’s memory. These data are automatically erased at the latest when you close your browser. If, exceptionally, one of our applications requires the storage of personal data in a cookie, for instance a user ID, we will point out you to it.

Of course, it is perfectly possible to consult our website without the use of cookies. Please note, however, that most browsers are programmed to accept cookies in their default configuration. You can prevent this by changing the appropriate setting in the browser options. If you set the browser to refuse all cookies, this may restrict your use of certain functions on our website.

 

6. Webanalysis

Personal user profiles are not created. However, section 15 (3) of the Telemedia Act (TMG) permits the use of user profiles under a pseudonym for the purpose of advertising, market research and the structuring of offers in line with the user’s needs provided that the user does not object to this.

We also use web analysis services on our web pages from Google Analytics, which carry out the web analysis on our behalf as contract processors. This service has been checked by the supervisory authorities and/or experts and meet all requirements under German and European data protection laws.
Using the technologies of this provider, data is collected and stored on our website. From this data, user profiles are produced under a pseudonym for marketing and optimization purposes, for which cookies may be used. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the cache memory of the site visitor’s web browser. The cookies enable the web browser to be recognized. Furthermore, your user behavior can be measured via a JavaScript code and data collected in this connection can be sent directly to the provider’s servers via an HTML connection. Without your express consent, the data collected using the tracking technologies will not be used to personally identify you and will not be combined with the personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym. No cross-website analysis will be carried out either.

If you wish to technically stop the tracking, you can deactivate JavaScript and cookies in your web browser. Consent for the collection and storage of data can also be refused with effect for the future at any time. Please follow this link to refuse the service provided by Google Analytics: www.tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

 

7. Security

The taskit GmbH implements technical and organizational security measures to safeguard stored personal data against inadvertent or deliberate manipulation, loss or destruction and against access by unauthorized persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological progress.

 

8. Links to websites operated by others

Our Web pages may contain links to other providers’ web pages. We would like to point out that this statement of data protection conditions applies exclusively to the web pages managed by the taskit GmbH. We have no way of influencing the practices of other providers with respect to data protection, nor do we carry out any checks to ensure that they conform with the relevant legislation.

 

9. Right to information and contact data

You have a legal right to inspect any stored data concerning your person, and also the right to demand their correction or deletion, and to withdraw your consent for their further use.

In some cases, if you are a registered user of certain services provided by the taskit GmbH, we offer you the possibility of inspecting these data online, and even of deleting or modifying the data yourself, via a user account.

If you wish to obtain information on your personal data, or want us to correct or erase such data, or if you have any other questions concerning the use of personal data held by us, please contact:
