Introduction and terms

1. Introduction

With the operation of our website https://www.enternature.de (hereinafter referred to as “website”) we process personal data. These will be treated confidentially by us and processed in accordance with the applicable laws – in particular the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG-neu). With our data protection regulations we would like to inform you which personal data we collect from you, for which purposes and on which legal basis we use it and if necessary to whom we disclose it. In addition, we will explain to you what rights you have to protect and enforce your privacy.

2. Terms

2.1 Personal Data

“Personal data” means all information relating to an identified or identifiable person (Art. 4 No. 1 DPA). Details of an identified person can be for example the name or the e-mail address. Personal data is also data where the identity is not immediately apparent, but can be determined by combining one’s own or external information and thus finding out who it is. A person becomes identifiable, for example, by providing their address or bank details, date of birth or user name, IP addresses and/or location data. Relevant here is all information that in any way allows an inference to a person.

2.2 Processing

Art. 4 No. 2 FADP defines “processing” as any operation involving personal data. This concerns in particular the collection, recording, organisation, arrangement, storage, adaptation or modification, reading, retrieval, use, disclosure, transmission, dissemination or any other form of provision, comparison or combination, restriction, deletion or destruction of personal data.

9. Social networks

9.1 Description of processing

Certain subpages of our website contain so-called social plugins, which are offered by the external social networks Facebook. When you visit a page that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of the social network. The content of the respective social plugin is transmitted by the social network directly to your browser and displayed in our website. To prevent this, we use the so-called two-click solution. We have integrated the social plugins on our website in such a way that the connection of the social plugins to the servers of the social networks is interrupted by default. If you want to communicate directly with a social network via the social plugin on our website and enable a data exchange, you have to click on the desired social plugin and activate it.

After activating a social plugin, we no longer have any influence on the amount of data that the respective social network collects. We will therefore inform you according to our level of knowledge.

By activating a social plugin, your IP address is transmitted to the respective social network in connection with the address of our website. If you are logged in to the social network when you visit our website, this information will be assigned to your user account there. If you interact with an activated social plugin, e.g. by means of the social plugin “share”, “liken” or “retweet”, this information is also transmitted directly to the respective social network and also stored there in your user account.

Our profiles within the social networks also represent data processing. If you are logged in to the respective social network when you visit such a profile, this information will be assigned to your user account there. When you interact with our profile, such as “share,” “like,” or “retweet,” this information is also stored in your user account. Through the so-called “insights” of our Facebook page we have the possibility to obtain statistical data. These statistics are provided by Facebook. The “Insights function” is not re-hireable. We cannot decide to turn this feature on or off. It is available to all Facebook fan page operators, whether they use Insights or not. We are provided with data for a selectable period of time and for the following groups of people: fans, subscribers, people reached and interacting. These are the following categories of personal data: total number of page views, “likes” including origin, page activities, post interactions, reach, contribution reach (divided into organic, viral and paid interactions), comments, shared content, responses, and demographic evaluations, i.e. country of origin, gender, and age. Due to the Facebook Terms of Use – which each user must have agreed to use in order to use Facebook – we are able to identify subscribers and fans of our Site and view their profiles.

The social networks with which you communicate store your data using pseudonyms as user profiles and use it for advertising purposes and for market research. For example, you may see advertisements within the social network and on other websites by third parties that correspond to your presumed interests. For this purpose, cookies are usually used, which the social network places on your terminal device. Further information on cookies can be found in clause 9. You have the right to object to the formation of these user profiles, which you must contact the social networks directly for the exercise of.

9.2 Purpose

We maintain profiles on the aforementioned social networks for the purpose of contemporary and supportive public relations and corporate communication with customers and interested parties.

We use the “Facebook Insights” function to make our posts on our Facebook fan page more attractive to our visitors. For example, we can use preferred visitor visits for time-optimized planning of our contributions.

9.3 Legal basis

The processing is necessary to safeguard the overriding legitimate interests of the controller (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). Our legitimate interest lies in the purpose specified in clause 10.6. If you are asked by us for your consent within the framework of a cookie banner or cookie consent tool, the legal basis is In Art. 1 lit. a GDPR. Such consent is voluntary. If you are asked for consent by the respective operator of a social network, the legal basis is In art. 1 lit. a GDPR. The data processing is carried out with regard to our Facebook fan page on the basis of an agreement on joint responsibility under Article 26 GDPR between us and Facebook, which you can view here: https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum.

9.4 Recipients and transfers to third countries

By activating a social plugin, your data is transmitted to one of the following social networks.

  • Facebook: Facebook Inc., 1601 S California Ave, Palo Alto, California 94304.
