The Data Controller ensures that personal data are processed in full compliance with the Regulations, in paper and/or electronic format, also with the aid of automated procedures. The processing may also be carried out by means of automated tools designed to store, manage and transmit the data.

The data collected and processed will be protected with physical and logical methods such as to minimise the risks of unauthorised access, dissemination, loss and destruction of data, pursuant to Articles 25 and 32 of the Regulation.

In particular, the User's data will be stored on the Swiss company Exoscale and on Amazon's servers, which guarantees compliance with high-security storage requirements.

The processing of the data will last no longer than is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which they were collected.

Pursuant to art. 7 paragraph 3 of the Regulations, the interested party will have the right at any time and in an easy and fast way to revoke consent to the processing and request the cancellation of their personal data, by sending a communication to the Data Controller.

COLLECTION OF NAVIGATION DATA

The computer systems and the technical and software procedures underlying the operation of the Website and the App acquire, in the course of their normal operation, certain personal data whose transmission is implicit in the access and operation mechanisms and protocols in use on the Internet.

Every time the User connects to the Website and the App and every time he calls up or requests content, access data is stored on our systems in the form of tabular or linear data files.

This category of data includes, for example, IP addresses, the domain names of the computers used by the Users who connect to the Website and the App, the request from the User's browser in the form of URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses, the date and time of the request to the server, the method used to submit the request to the server, the amount of data transmitted, the numerical code indicating the status of the response given by the server and other parameters relating to the User's operating system and computer environment.

This data may be used by the Data Controller in order to obtain anonymous statistical information on the use of the Site and the App in order to identify the pages preferred by the Users and thus provide increasingly adequate content and to check that they are functioning correctly. They may also be used, subject to the explicit consent of the User, to send communications and reminders (e.g. requests for telephone contact).

Upon request of the Authority, the data could be used to ascertain responsibility in case of hypothetical computer crimes against the Site and App or its Users.

These are cookies deposited by Batmaid Germany GmbH on your terminal equipment to guarantee you a good browsing experience on the Site and to optimise and personalise our services according to your needs.

Cookies deposited by our partners

These are most often referred to as third party cookies. These are cookies deposited by third-party companies (such as advertising agencies or partners) to identify your centres of interest through the products and services consulted or purchased on our site and to personalise the advertising offer that is sent to you on or off our site.

By way of illustration, when you browse our site, Google may install cookies from our site to identify your browser and device for marketing or behavioural analysis purposes.

We ensure that all of our partners process your personal data in accordance with applicable laws and regulations and we are committed to implementing appropriate technical and organisational measures to best protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your data.

TYPES OF COOKIES USED

There are different types of cookies, however, the batmaid.de. website uses the following:

Functional: We use these cookies to recognise the User on our website and to remember preferences previously selected by the User. These may include the User's language preference and geographical location. A combination of first party and third party cookies are used. Cookies allow for smooth navigation between pages and improve your overall experience. For example, cookies remember that the User is logged in and avoid the need to re-enter contact information.

Analytical: Cookies are also used for analytical purposes but remain anonymous. Batmaid can cite an example of the use of cookies for audience measurement and statistics relating to television campaigns. The Realytics cookie is committed to respecting the data collected and does not collect any personal or sensitive data and can be deactivated from the Realytics deactivation page at the following address: https://www.realytics.io/optout/.

SessionCam: Batmaid uses SessionCam to analyse how users interact with websites and the content on them. Mouse movements, mouse clicks, page scrolling, text entered in search boxes and forms on the website may be recorded for statistical reporting purposes and to improve the usability of the website. The data compiled is for internal use only and does not involve any sensitive personal information.

Trustpilot: Batmaid may contact the User by email to invite him/her to review any services and/or products received in order to collect feedback and improve services. Batmaid uses an external company, Trustpilot A/S ("Trustpilot"), to collect User feedback, which means that Batmaid will share the name, email address and reference number of the User with Trustpilot for this purpose. If the User wants to read more about how Trustpilot processes the User's data, the User can consult their privacy policy at: https://de.legal.trustpilot.com/for-reviewers/end-user-privacy-terms. 

Social plugins: The Website uses social plugins, for example from Facebook, Twitter or Google+. The plugins are marked with the provider's logo and may be, for example, a "Like" button or a Google+ button or a Twitter button. When the user calls up the website containing such a plugin, the user's browser establishes a direct connection with the provider's computers. The content of the plugin is transmitted from the provider's website directly to the User's browser, which integrates it into the website. By integrating the plugins, the provider receives information that the User has called up our website. If the User is simultaneously connected to the provider, the provider can assign the visit to the profile. If the user interacts with the plugins, for example by activating the "Like" button or making a comment, the relevant information is transmitted from the user's browser directly to the provider and stored there. If the User does not want the Provider to collect data about him via the website, the User must log out of the Provider's website before visiting the batmaid.co.uk website. Even if the User is logged out, the Provider collects anonymised data through social plug-ins and sets cookies for the User. If the User subsequently logs in to the provider, this data can be assigned to the User's profile. If an ID is provided via a social login service, e.g. Facebook Connect, the data is exchanged between the provider and the website. In the case of Facebook Connect, this can be, for example, the data from the user's public Facebook profile. By using such login services, the user consents to the transfer of the data. 

The user should consult the provider's data protection notices for the purpose and scope of data collection and further processing of the user's data by the provider, as well as the respective rights and setting options to protect his or her privacy. Facebook Ireland Ltd. or Facebook Inc: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/ Google Inc: http://www.google.com/intl/de/privacy/plusone/ Twitter Inc: http://twitter.com/privacy

If the User does not want the provider to collect data about him through these cookies, the User can select the "block cookies from third-party providers" function in his browser settings. Thus, if there is content embedded by other providers, the browser will not send any cookies to the server. It is possible that with this setting, other functions of the website will no longer function.

COOKIE MANAGEMENT

The User can set his or her own non-acceptance of cookies. However, in some cases, some functions of the website may not function accordingly
