What is it about?

This privacy policy meets the legal requirements for transparency in the processing of personal data. This is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as your name, age, address, telephone number, date of birth, email address, IP address or user behavior when visiting a website. Information for which we cannot (or can only with a disproportionate effort) establish a reference to your person, e.g. by anonymization, is not personal data. The processing of personal data (e.g. collection, retrieval, use, storage or transmission) always requires a legal basis and a defined purpose.
Stored personal data will be deleted as soon as the purpose of the processing has been achieved and there are no legitimate grounds for further storage of the data. We will inform you about the specific storage periods or criteria for storage in the individual processing operations. Irrespective of this, we store your personal data in individual cases for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims and if there are statutory retention obligations.
The following data protection notices apply to you if you have concluded a contract or similar with us. They contain information on how your personal data is processed by FIT AG and its affiliated companies in accordance with Section 15ff of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG) (FIT) and what contact options are available for issues relating to data protection.

Who receives my data?

We only share your personal data that we process on our website with third parties if this is necessary for the fulfillment of the purposes and is covered by the legal basis in the individual case (e.g. consent or safeguarding legitimate interests).
Insofar as we use service providers for the operation of our website who process personal data on our behalf within the scope of commissioned processing pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR, they may be recipients of your personal data.
To the extent permitted by law or contractually agreed with you, we share personal data with companies in our group as well as external service providers:

  • Group companies to execute your contract and for reporting purposes.
  • Sales partners and service providers for targeted approach, conclusion and execution of the contract as well as for commission processing.
  • Credit institutions and payment service providers for settlements as well as processing of payments.
  • IT service provider to maintain our IT infrastructure.
  • Public authorities in justified cases (e.g. social insurance carriers, financial authorities, police, public prosecutor's office, supervisory authorities).

How is my data processed in detail?

In the following, we inform you about the individual processing operations, the scope and purpose of the data processing, the legal basis, the obligation to provide your data and the respective storage period. An automated decision in individual cases, including profiling, does not take place.

Provision of the website

When you call up and use our website, we collect the personal data that your browser automatically transmits to our server. The following information is stored temporarily in a so-called log file:

  • IP address of the requesting computer
  • Date and time of access
  • Name and URL of the retrieved file
  • Website from which the access is made (referrer URL)
  • Browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer
  • and the name of your access provider.

The processing is carried out to protect our overriding legitimate interest to display our website and ensure security and stability based on Art. 6 para. lit. f GDPR. The collection of data and storage in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. There is no right to object to the processing due to the exception under Art. 21 (1) GDPR. Insofar as the further storage of log files is required by law, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR. There is no legal or contractual obligation to provide the data, however, calling up our website is not technically possible without providing the data. The aforementioned data is stored for the duration of the website display and for technical reasons beyond that for a maximum of 360 days..

Are cookies used?

Cookies are small text files that are sent by us to the browser of your end device during your visit to our website and stored there. As an alternative to the use of cookies, information can also be stored in the local storage of your browser. Some functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies or local storage (technically necessary cookies). Other cookies, on the other hand, enable us to perform various analyses, so that we are able, for example, to recognize the browser you are using when you visit our website again and to transmit various information to us (non-essential cookies). With the help of cookies, we can, among other things, make our website more user-friendly and effective for you, for example by tracking your use of our website and determining your preferred settings (e.g. country and language settings). If third parties process information via cookies, they collect the information directly from your browser. Cookies do not cause any damage to your end device. They cannot execute programs or contain viruses. We provide information about the respective services for which we use cookies in the individual processing procedures. You can find detailed information about the cookies used in the cookie settings or in the Consent Manager of this website.

Google Tag Manager

This website uses the Google Tag Manager. Through this service, website tags can be managed through an interface. The Google Tool Manager only implements tags. This means that no cookies are used and no personal data is collected. The Google Tool Manager triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. However, the Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at domain or cookie level, it remains in place for all tracking tags, insofar as these are implemented with the Google Tag Manager.

Google Double Click

We have integrated components of Double Click by Google on our website. Double Click is a brand of Google, under which mainly special online marketing solutions are marketed to advertising agencies and publishers. Double Click by Google transfers data to the Double Click server with each impression as well as with clicks or other activities.
Each of these data transfers triggers a cookie request to the browser of the data subject. If the browser accepts this request, Double Click sets a cookie in your browser.
Double Click uses a cookie ID, which is required to process the technical procedure. The cookie ID is required, for example, to display an advertisement in a browser. Double Click can also use the cookie ID to record which advertisements have already been displayed in a browser in order to avoid duplicate placements. Furthermore, the cookie ID enables Double Click to record conversions. Conversions are recorded, for example, if a Double Click ad was previously displayed to a user and the user subsequently makes a purchase on the advertiser's website using the same Internet browser.
A Double Click cookie does not contain any personal data, but may contain additional campaign identifiers. A campaign identifier serves to identify the campaigns with which you have already been in contact on other websites. As part of this service, Google obtains knowledge of data that Google also uses to generate commission statements. Among other things, Google can track that you have clicked on certain links on our website. In this case, your data is passed on to the operator of Double Click, Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Further information and the applicable privacy policy of Double Click by Google can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy.

We process your data with the help of the Double Click cookie for the purpose of optimizing and displaying advertising based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR. You give your consent through your setting for the use of cookies (cookie banner / Consent Manager), with which you can also declare your revocation at any time with effect for the future pursuant to Art. 7 (3) GDPR. The cookie is used, among other things, to place and display user-relevant advertising and to create reports on advertising campaigns or to improve them. Furthermore, the cookie is used to avoid multiple displays of the same advertising. Each time you call up one of the individual pages of our website on which a Double Click component has been integrated, your browser is automatically prompted by the respective Double Click component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions. There is no legal or contractual obligation to provide your data. If you do not give us your consent, a visit to our website is possible without restriction, but not all functions may be fully available.
The specific storage period of the processed data cannot be influenced by us, but is determined by Google Ireland Limited. Further information can be found in the privacy policy for Google Double Click: https://policies.google.com/privacy.
