If a user - hereinafter referred to as the person concerned - wishes to make use of special offers from PCCell GmbH, it may be necessary to process personal data.

Use of Cookies

Description and extent of data processing

The PCCell GmbH website uses cookies. Cookies are text files which are stored on a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular Internet browser can be recognized and identified by its unique cookie ID.

Purpose of data processing

By using cookies, PCCell GmbH can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the setting of cookies.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimised in the interests of the user. Cookies enable us, as already mentioned, to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re-enter his access data each time he visits the website because this is taken over by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable under certain circumstances.

The legal foundation for processing the data using technically necessary cookies is Art. 6 Cl. 1 (f) of GDPR.

The legal foundation for processing the data using cookies for analytics purposes with relevant consent from the user is Art. 6 Cl. 1 (a) of GDPR.

Type of data stored

Each time a person accesses the content of our website at the above-mentioned Internet address, a series of general information and data is collected on the basis of transmission technology. This information and data is stored in so-called server log files. This data can be collected:

  1. the type of Internet browser used by the person concerned;
  2. the operating system installed on the computer from which the data subject accesses it;
  3. the website from which the data subject controlled the computer he or she used to access our website (so-called "referrer URL");
  4. the sub-pages that the data subject accesses within our website using the system he or she controls;
  5. the date and time at which the data subject accessed our website;
  6. the Internet protocol address (IP address) assigned to the Internet connection used by the person concerned to access the content of our Internet site;
  7. the Internet Service Provider (ISP) that provided the Internet connection through which the contents of our Internet offering were accessed.

Purpose of data processing

PCCell GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned from this general information. The information mentioned is required in order

  1. to deliver the contents of our Internet offer correctly;
  2. to optimise the contents of our website and the advertising for it;
  3. to guarantee the long-term functionality of the IT systems we use and of our Internet offering, and
  4. to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack.

In order to achieve these purposes, the above-mentioned information is evaluated anonymously for PCCell GmbH statistically and, in addition, with the aim of guaranteeing data protection and data security for the persons concerned and establishing an optimum level of protection. If server log files remain stored for the aforementioned purposes until the evaluation is completed, they are not merged with other information actively provided by the person concerned, but stored separately from it.

Due to legal obligations, information is available on the PCCell GmbH website which enables rapid electronic contact and direct communication with us. Furthermore, a contact form allows you to contact us. However, its use is not obligatory. If a person concerned contacts us via one of these channels, the personal data transmitted by the person concerned will be processed and stored for the purpose of processing the request that forms the basis of the contact.

Duration of storage

PCCell GmbH processes and stores personal data only for the period of time required to achieve the processing purpose and within which an obligation to store the data is required by a statutory provision to which PCCell GmbH is bound. As soon as the storage purpose ceases to apply or the retention period has expired, the personal data will be routinely deleted in accordance with the legal requirements or further processing of the data concerned will be restricted.

h. information on the existence of automated decision making, including profiling, in accordance with Art. 22 Cl. (1) and Art. 22 Cl. (4) of the General Regulation on Data Protection and, where such automated decision making is provided for, meaningful information on the logic, scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject;

3. the right to obtain from the controller the rectification of data relating to the data subject which are inaccurate, including the right to request the completion of any incomplete personal data, taking into account the purposes of the processing, if necessary by means of a supplementary statement

7. the right to object at any time, on the basis of the particular personal situation of the data subject, to the processing of personal data concerning him by the controller on the basis of the rules laid down in Art. 6 Cl. 1 (e) of the GDPR. This includes opposition to possible profiling.

PCCell GmbH will no longer process the relevant personal data after an objection has been filed, unless compelling interests worthy of protection can be proven for the processing which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the person concerned or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend claims.

Where personal data are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to such processing. This also includes profiling in connection with such direct marketing. If the person concerned makes use of the right of objection, PCCell GmbH will no longer process the personal data attributable to this person for these purposes.

Furthermore, the data subject has the right to object to the processing of personal data relating to him for purposes of scientific or historical research within the meaning of Art. 89 Cl. 1 of the GDPRs due to his particular personal situation. No further processing of the personal data concerned will take place unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest.

8. the right of the data controller not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects or is similarly substantially prejudicial to the data subject, but to the decision of the controller

b. is authorised by legislation of the European Union or of a Member State to which the controller is subject and which lays down appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and the legitimate interests of the data subject; or

c. with the express consent of the data subject.

PCCell GmbH will take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject in cases where the processing of personal data in question is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between PCCell GmbH and the data subject or is based on the consent of the data subject. This includes at least the right of a data subject to intervene in the decision-making process on the part of the data controller and the right to present the data subject's own point of view to the data controller.

9. the right to revoke at any time the prior consent under data protection law to the processing of personal data relating to the data subject granted to the controller.

Google Maps

On this website, maps are integrated using the interface provided by the operator of the Google Maps service. The operator of the "Google Maps" service is Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

In order to use the functions of the "Google Maps" service, it is necessary to transfer the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned to Google, otherwise the integrated maps cannot be delivered. The maps are integrated to provide an appealing presentation of the online and offline offerings as well as to make it easy to find our business premises. It is therefore in the legitimate interest of the service provider within the meaning of Art. 6 Cl. 1 (f) GDPR. Further information on the handling of personal data by Google and your rights as a data subject to be asserted against this provider can be found under

Google Analytics

PCCell GmbH has integrated the service "Google Analytics" with the anonymization function "Anonymize IP" into its Internet offer provided here. The function of Google Analytics requires that javascript is activated on the computer system used.

Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data about the behavior of visitors to Internet sites. A web analysis service collects data on, among other things, from which website a person concerned came to a website (so-called referrers), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and to analyse the costs and benefits of Internet advertising.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The data controller uses the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for the web analysis via Google Analytics. This addition is used by Google to shorten and anonymise the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned if our Internet pages are accessed from a member state of the European Union or from another state part to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us showing the activities on our website and to provide other services in connection with the use of our website.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. When the cookie is set, Google is able to analyse the use of our website. Each time you access one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission statements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may share this personal data collected through the technical process with third parties.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may share this personal data collected through the technical process with third parties.

Furthermore, it is possible for the person concerned to object to and prevent the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. For this purpose, the person concerned must download and install a browser add-on under the link

https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout

This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via javascript that no data and information on visits to Internet pages may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is regarded by Google as an objection. If the data subject's information technology system is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later date, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the person concerned or by another person within his/her sphere of control, the browser add-on may be reinstalled or reactivated.

Google AdWords

The person responsible for the processing has integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to place ads both in Google's search engine results and in the Google advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-define keywords that will be used to display an ad in Google's search engine results only when the user uses the search engine to retrieve a keyword relevant search result. In the Google advertising network, the ads are distributed to topic-relevant Internet pages using an automatic algorithm and taking into account the previously defined keywords.

The operating company of the Google AdWords services is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of Google AdWords is to promote our website by displaying advertisements of interest on third-party websites and in the search engine results of Google and by displaying third-party advertisements on our website.

If a person concerned reaches our website via a Google advertisement, a so-called conversion cookie is stored on the information technology system of the person concerned by Google. What cookies are has already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and does not serve to identify the person concerned. If the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie is used to track whether certain subpages, such as the shopping cart of an online shop system, have been accessed on our website. The conversion cookie enables both we and Google to track whether a person who came to our website via an AdWords ad generated a turnover, i.e. completed or cancelled a purchase.

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to compile visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are in turn used by us to determine the total number of users who were referred to us via AdWords ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords ad and to optimise our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could be used to identify the person concerned.

The conversion cookie is used to store personal information, such as the Internet pages visited by the person concerned. Accordingly, each time you visit our website, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through this technical process to third parties.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as described above, at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data is the provision in Art. 6 Cl. 1 (a) of the GDPR, insofar as PCCell GmbH requests the consent of the person concerned.

If the processing of personal data attributable to the data subject is necessary for the initiation, performance or termination of a contract with the controller, the lawfulness of the processing shall be determined in accordance with the rules laid down in Art. 6 Cl. 1 (b) of the GDPR.

To the extent that the data controller is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, the lawfulness of the processing shall be determined in accordance with the provision in Art. 6 Cl. 1 (c) of the GDPR.

In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This is the case, for example, when the data controller becomes aware of an injury to a data subject and medical assistance needs to be obtained from the data controller. In such and comparable cases, the processing of personal data is based on the provision in Art. 6 Cl. 1 (d) of the GDPR.

Finally, PCCell GmbH is permitted to process personal data pursuant to Art. 6 Cl. 1 (f) of the GDPR in so far as it is necessary to safeguard its legitimate interests and those of a third party and the fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject with regard to the confidentiality of personal data attributable to it do not prevail. A legitimate interest on the part of the person responsible for data processing exists in particular if the purpose of the processing is to carry out business activities for the benefit of our employees and shareholders.

PCCell GmbH hereby expressly declares that the provision of personal data is partly legally obligatory. This is the case, for example, in the area of tax law, but also with regard to contractual provisions. A contract can only be concluded with the person responsible for data processing if the necessary information on the contractual partner as the person concerned is provided in full. In case of questions regarding the basis and the necessity, the person responsible for data processing can be reached via the above-mentioned communication channels for queries.
