The following overview summarizes the types of data processed and the purposes of their processing and refers to the data subjects.
Types of data processed
Categories of data subjects
Purpose of processing
In the following, we provide the legal background of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), based on which we process personal data. Please note that in addition to the regulations of the GDPR, national data protection regulations may apply in your or our country of residence and domicile. If, in addition, more specific legal bases are applicable in individual cases, we will inform you of these in the data protection declaration. As Sonoraspace is
National data protection regulations in Germany: In addition to the data protection provisionsof the GDPR, national regulations on data protection apply in Germany. These include in particular the law on protection against misuse of data in data processing (Federal Data Protection Act – “BDSG”). In particular, the BDSG contains special regulations on the right to information, the right to deletion, the right of objection, the processing of special categories of personal data, processing for other purposes and transmission as well asautomated decision-making in individual cases including profiling. Furthermore, it regulates data processing for the purposes of the employment relationship (Section 26 BDSG), in particular with regard to the establishment, implementation or termination of employment relationships and the consent of employees. Furthermore, the data protection laws of the individual federal states may be applicable.
We take appropriate technical and organisational measures in accordance with legal requirements, taking into account the state of the art, implementation costs and the nature, scope, circumstances and purposes of the processing, as well as the different probabilities of occurrence and the extent of the threat to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, in order to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk.
These measures shall include, in particular, ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling physical and electronic access to the data as well as the access, input, disclosure, assurance of availability and segregation of data relating to them. Furthermore, we have established procedures to ensure that data subjects' rights are exercised, data is deleted and responses to data threats are made. Furthermore, we take the protection of data into account as early as the development or selection of hardware, software andprocesses in accordance with the principle of data protection, by designing technology and by using data protection-friendly default settings.
SSL encryption (https):To protect your data transmitted via our online offer, we use SSL encryption. You can recognize such encrypted connections by the prefix https:// in theaddress line of your browser.
Within thescope of our processing of data, it happens that the data is transferred to other bodies, companies, legally independent organisational units or persons or that it is disclosed to them. The recipients of this data may include, for example, payment institutions in the context of payment transactions, service providers commissioned with IT tasks or providers of services and content that are integrated into a website. In such cases, we comply with the legal requirements and in particular conclude appropriate contracts or agreements with the recipients of your data which serve to protect your data.
Commissioned data processing
The following companies have been commissioned by the operator of this website toprocess data:
Sharetribe. Oy, Bulevardi 14, 00120 Helsinki, Finland
Data processing in third countries
If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (“EEA”) or the processing takes place in the context of the use of services of third parties or the disclosure or transfer of data to other persons, bodies or companies, this is only done in accordance with the legal requirements.
Subject to express consent or contractually or legally required transfer, we process or allow the data to be processed only in third countries with a recognised level of data protection, including the US processors certified under the "Privacy Shield", or on the basis of special guarantees, such as contractual obligations through so-called standard protection clauses of the EU Commission, the existence of certifications or binding internal data protection regulations (Art. 44 to 49 GDPR, information page of the EU Commission: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection_en).
Cookies are text files that contain data from websites or domains visited and are stored by a browser on the user's computer. A cookie is primarily used to store information about a user during or after his visit within an online offer. The stored information may include, for example, the language settings on awebsite, the login status, a shopping cart or the location where a video was viewed. The term "cookies" also includes other technologies that perform the same functions as cookies (e.g., when user information is stored using pseudonymous online identifiers, also known as "user IDs").
The following cookie types and functions are distinguished:
When contacting us (e.g. via contact form, e-mail, telephone or social media), thedata of the inquiring persons will be processed to the extent that this isnecessary to answer the contact inquiries and possible requested measures.
The answering of contact enquiries within the framework of contractual or pre-contractualrelations is carried out in order to fulfil our contractual obligations or to answer (pre)contractual enquiries and otherwise on the basis of our legitimate interest in answering the enquiries.
In order to provide our online services securely and efficiently, we use the services ofone or more web hosting providers from whose servers (or servers managed by them) the online services can be accessed. For these purposes, we may use infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage and database services, and security and technical maintenance services.
The data processed within the framework of the provision of the hosting offer mayinclude all data concerning the users of our online offer, which are generatedwithin the framework of the use and communication. This regularly includes the IP address, which is necessary to be able to deliver the contents of online offers to browsers, and all entries made within our online offer or from websites.
E-mail dispatch and hosting : The web hosting services we use also include the sending, receiving and storing of e-mails. For these purposes, the addresses of the recipients andsenders as well as other information concerning the sending of e-mails (e.g.the providers involved) and the contents of the respective e-mails areprocessed. The aforementioned data may also be processed for the purpose of SPAM detection. Please note that e-mails on the Internet are generally not sentin encrypted form. As a rule, e-mails are encrypted in transit, but (unless aso-called end-to-end encryption method is used) not on the servers from which they are sent and received. We can therefore not assume any responsibility forthe transmission path of the e-mails between the sender and the reception on our server.
Collection of access data and log files : We ourselves (or our web hosting provider) collect data on every access to the server (so-called server log files). Server log files may include the address and name of the web pages and files accessed, date and time of access, data volume transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page) and, as a rule, IP addresses and the requesting provider.
The serverlog files can be used for security purposes, e.g. to avoid overloading the servers (especially in the case of abusive attacks, so-called DDoS attacks) andto ensure the load of the servers and their stability.
Content-Delivery-Network: We use a "Content DeliveryNetwork" (CDN). A CDN is a service that allows the content of an online offer, especially large media files such as graphics or program scripts, to bedelivered faster and more securely with the help of regionally distributed servers connected via the Internet.
We use software services accessible via the Internet and running on the servers oftheir providers (so-called "cloud services", also referred toas "Software as a Service") for the following purposes: document storage and management, calendar management, e-mailing, spreadsheets and presentations, exchanging documents, content and information with specific recipients or publishing web pages, forms or other content and information, and chatting and participating in audio and video conferences.
If we use the cloud services to provide other users or publicly accessible websites with forms, documents or other content, the providers may store cookies on the users' devices for web analysis purposes or to remember user settings (e.g. in the case of media control).
Notes on legal bases: If we ask for your consent to use the cloud services, the legal basis of the processing is consent. Furthermore, their use can be part of our (pre-)contractual services, provided that the use of cloud services has been agreed upon in this context. Otherwise, the users' data will be processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e., interest in efficient and secureadministration and collaboration processes)
Services used and service providers:
We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications (hereinafter"newsletters") only with the consent of the recipients or a legal permission. If the contents of the newsletter are specifically described in the context of a registration for the newsletter, they are decisive for the consent of the users. Furthermore, our newsletters contain information about our services and us.
To subscribe to our newsletters, it is basically sufficient to enter your e-mail address. However,we may ask you to enter a name for the purpose of a personal address in the newsletter, or other details if these are necessary for the purposes of the newsletter.
Double opt-in procedure: The registration for our newsletter is always done in a so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after registration you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with foreign e-mail addresses. The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of theregistration and confirmation time as well as the IP address. Changes to your data stored by the shipping service provider are also logged.
Deletionand limitation of processing: We may store the unsubscribed e-mail addresses for up to three years on the basis of our legitimate interests before we delete them in order to be able to prove a previously given consent. The processing of this data is limited to the purpose of a possibledefence against claims. An individual request for deletion is possible at anytime, provided that the former existence of a consent is confirmed at the same time. In case of obligations to permanently observe contradictions, we reserve the right to store the e-mail address in a blacklist for this purpose alone.
The logging of the registration procedure is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests for the purpose of proving that it has been carried out properly. If we commission a service provider to send e-mails, this is done on the basis ofour legitimate interests in an efficient and secure sending system.
Notes on legal bases: Newslettersare sent on the basis of the consent of the recipients according to Sec 6 para1 sentence lit. a GDPR.
Contents: Information about us, ourservices, actions and offers.
Performance measurement: Then ewsletters contain a so-called "web-beacon", i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from our server when the newsletter is opened or, if we use a mailing service provider, from their server. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information such as information on the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and the time of the retrieval, is initially collected.
This information is used for the technical improvement of our newsletter on thebasis of technical data or target groups and their reading behaviour based ontheir retrieval locations (which can be determined using the IP address) oraccess times. This analysis also includes determining whether the newsletter isopened, when it is opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons,this information can be assigned to individual newsletter recipients. However,it is neither our endeavour nor, if used, that of the dispatch service providerto observe individual users. Rather, the evaluations serve to identify thereading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to senddifferent content according to the interests of our users.
Theevaluation of the newsletter and the measurement of success are carried out,subject to the express consent of the users, on the basis of our legitimateinterests for the purpose of using a user-friendly and secure newslettersystem, which both serves our business interests and meets the expectations ofthe users.
A separaterevocation of the performance measurement is unfortunately not possible, inthis case the entire newsletter subscription must be cancelled, or must becontradicted.
Services used and service providers:
Advertising communication via email, post, fax or telephone
We process data for the purposes of advertising communication, which can take place via various channels, such as email, telephone, post or fax, in accordance with legal requirements.
The recipients have the right to revoke their consent at any time or to object to the promotional communication at any time.
After revocation or objection, we may store the data required to prove consent for up to three years on the basis of our legitimate interests before we delete it. The processing of this data is limited to the purpose of a possible defence against claims. An individual request for deletion is possible at any time, provided that the former existence of a consent is confirmed at the same time.
We process data for online marketing purposes, which may include, in particular, the marketing of advertising space or the display of advertising and other content (collectively referred to as "Content") based on the potential interests of users and the measurement of their effectiveness.
For these purposes, so-called user profiles are created and stored in a file (so-called"cookie") or similar procedures are used, by means of which the information about the user relevant for the presentation of the aforementioned contents is stored. This information may include, for example, the content viewed, web pages visited, online networks used, but also communication partners and technical information such as the browser used, the computer system used and information on usage times. If users have consented to the collection of their location data, these can also be processed.
The IP addresses of users are also stored. However, we use available IP masking procedures (i.e., pseudonymization by shortening the IP address) to protect theusers. In general, the online marketing procedure does not store any clear user data (such as e-mail addresses or names), but pseudonyms. This means that we as well as the providers of the online marketing procedures do not know the actualidentity of the users, but only the information stored in their profiles.
The information in the profiles is usually stored in the cookies or by similar methods. These cookies can later be read out and analysed for the purpose of presenting content and supplemented with further data and stored on the server of the online marketing procedure provider on other websites that use the same online marketing procedure.
As an exception, clear data can be assigned to the profiles. This is the case, for example, if the users are members of a social network whose online marketing methods we use and the network links the profiles of the users in the aforementioned data. Please note that users can make additional agreements with the providers, e.g. by giving their consent during registration.
As a matter of principle, we only have access to summarized information about the success of our advertisements. However, in the course of so-called conversion measurements, we can check which of our online marketing procedures have led to a so-called conversion, i.e., for example, to the conclusion of a contract withus. The conversion measurement is used solely to analyse the success of our marketing measures.
Unless otherwise stated, we ask you to assume that cookies used are stored for a period of two years.
Used services and service providers:
are usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google. We have also added the code "anonymizeIP" to Google Analytics on this website. This guarantees the masking of your IP address so that all data is collected anonymously. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially in the case of browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent Google Analytics from recording the data by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent future collection of your information when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie is valid only in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you will need to set the opt-out cookie again. Please see https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/gajs/?hl=en#disable for notes on how to integrate the opt-out cookie.
We also use Google Analytics to evaluate data from double-click cookies and AdWords for statistical purposes. If you do not want this, you can deactivate this via the Ads Preferences Manager (http://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/?hl=en).
You can find further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics in the Google Analytics Help (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en).
We maintain online presences within social networks in order to communicate with the users active there or to offer information about us.
Please note that user data may be processed outside the European Union. This may result in risks for the users, e.g. because the enforcement of the users' rights could be made more difficult. With regard to US providers that are certified under the Privacy Shield or offer comparable guarantees of a secure level of data protection, we would like to point out that they undertake to comply with the data protection standards of the EU.
Furthermore, the data of users within social networks are usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, user profiles can be created on the basis of user behaviour and the resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements within and outside the networks that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the users' computers, in which the usage behaviour and interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, data can also be stored in the user profiles independently of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platformsand are logged in to these platforms).
For a detailed presentation of the respective forms of processing and the possibilities of objection (opt-out), we refer to the data protection declarations andinformation provided by the operators of the respective networks.
Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of rights of affected persons, we would like to point out that these can most effectively be asserted with the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can take appropriate measures and provide information directly. Should you nevertheless need help, please contact us.
Services used and service providers:
We integrate functional and content elements into our online offer, which are obtained from the servers of their respective providers (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers"). These can be, for example, graphics, videos or social media buttons and contributions (hereinafter referred to uniformly as "content").
The integration always requires that the third party providers of this content process the IP address of the users, as without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to their browsers. The IP address is therefore required to display these contents or functions. We make every effort to use only such content whose respective providers use the IP address only to deliver the content. Third party providers may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as "web beacons") for statistical or marketing purposes. "Pixel tags" can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also bestored in cookies on the user's device and may contain technical information onthe browser and operating system, websites to be referred to, the time of visit and other information on the use of our online offer, as well as being linked to such information from other sources.
Services used and service providers:
We use the services, platforms and software of other providers (hereinafter referred to as "third party providers") for the purposes of organizing, managing, planning and providing our services. When selecting third-party providers and their services, we observe the legal requirements.
In this context, datamay be processed andstored on the servers of third party providers. This may affect various datawhich we process in accordance with this data protection declaration. This data may include, in particular, master data and contact details of users, data on procedures, contracts, other processes and their contents.
If users are referred to the third-partyproviders or their software or platforms in the course of communication, business or other relations with us, the third-party providers may process usage data and metadata for security, service optimization or marketing purposes. We therefore request that you observe the data protection notices of the relevant third-party providers.
The data processed by us will be deleted in accordance with the legal requirements assoon as the consents authorised for processing are revoked or other authorisations cease to apply (e.g. if the purpose for which the data wereprocessed ceases to apply or if they are not necessary for the purpose).
Unless the data are deleted because they are required for other and legally permissible purposes, their processing is limited to these purposes. This means that the data is blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be retained for reasons of commercial or tax law orwhose retention is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legalclaims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person.
We kindly ask you to inform yourself regularly about the content of our privacy statement. You will find a reference to the validity date at the beginning of the privacy statement. We will update the statement as soon as changes in the data processing carried out by us make this necessary. We will inform you as soon as the changes make it necessary for you to cooperate (e.g. to give your consent) or to receive other individual notification. Otherwise, please kindly inform yourself about the changes.
