Personal data therefore also includes, for example, preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites were viewed by someone.

RESPONSIBLE FOR DATA
As "Responsible" shall mean the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data.
LEGAL BASES FOR THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA
Unless the legal basis is specifically mentioned in this data protection declaration for individual tools, we will inform you of the legal basis of our data processing in accordance with Art. 13 DSGVO - as follows
- The legal basis for obtaining consent is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a and Art. 7 DSGVO,

- If vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d FADP serves as the legal basis.
COOPERATION WITH PROCESSORS AND THIRD PARTIES
If, in the course of our processing, we disclose data to other persons and companies (processors or third parties), transfer it to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this is only done on the basis of a legal authorisation (e.g. if the data must be transferred to third parties, such as payment service providers, in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter b DSGVO for the fulfilment of the contract), if you have given your consent, if a legal obligation provides for this or on the basis of our legitimate interests (e.g. when using agents, web hosts, etc.).
If we commission third parties to process data on the basis of a so-called "contract processing agreement", this is done on the basis of Art. 28 DSGVO.
TRANSMISSION TO THIRD COUNTRIES
If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) or if this is done in the context of using the services of third parties or disclosure or transfer of data to third parties, this will only take place if it is done to fulfil our (pre-)contractual obligations, on the basis of your consent, on the basis of a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we will only process or transfer the data in a third country if the special requirements of Art. 44 ff. DSGVO. This means that the processing is carried out, for example, on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognised determination of a level of data protection corresponding to that of the EU (e.g. for the USA through the "Privacy Shield") or compliance with officially recognised special contractual obligations (so-called "standard contractual clauses").
HANDLING OF PERSONAL DATA
Personal data will only be collected, used and passed on to third parties by the provider if this is legally permitted or if you as the user agree to the processing.
Personal data - e.g. name and address - are collected by us, for example, when you purchase a product, in order to be able to send you an invoice. This and other personal data is also transferred to third parties - e.g. a financial institution - if you choose a corresponding payment method, as long as it is essential for the handling of payments and the execution of the contract.
Personal data can only be passed on to third parties if a legal or judicial authorisation is available or if we involve third parties who are obliged to maintain professional secrecy to enforce our rights.
The following are also processed - Contract data (e.g., subject matter of the contract, duration, customer category). - Payment data (e.g., bank details, payment history) of our customers, interested parties and business partners for the purpose of providing contractual services, service and customer care, marketing, advertising and market research.
PART 2: USE OF OUR WEBSITE
VISIT TO OUR WEBSITE
In principle, you can visit our website without providing any personal information. We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet cannot be fully protected against access by third parties.
The automatic collection and storage of log data by our provider of Internet services (provider) includes the following information:
-date and visit of the URL where the visitor is located
-URL that the visitor visited immediately before
-The operating system used
-IP address and hostname of the visitor
The transmission of this data to us is automatic. Your data cannot be assigned to your person.
CONTACT BY E-MAIL OR TELEPHONE
When you contact us as the provider of the website (for example by e-mail or telephone), your details will be stored on our operating system for the purpose of processing your enquiry and in the event that follow-up questions arise.
COMMENTS AND CONTRIBUTIONS
You can write comments in the blog on our website as a user. When you enter the blog comments, the IP address provided by you is immediately anonymized. However, the publication of incoming comments is subject to the approval of our administrator. This approval check is intended to prevent illegal content from being published on our pages.
As the author of comments, you are free to enter your real name or a pseudonym in the name field provided. You also have the option of not entering a name at all. Your e-mail address will not be displayed when the comment is published on our website.
The data transmitted when sending a comment, such as your e-mail address, the name you entered and, if applicable, the URL you entered and the comment you sent are permanently stored on our server, whereby only the released comment, if applicable with the name, is publicly visible on our website. The processing of this personal data is based on the consent you have previously given within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a). You are free to revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future (see part 8 of this data protection declaration).
INTEGRATION OF SERVICES AND CONTENT OF THIRD PARTIES
It can happen that within this online offer third party content, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated. This always presupposes that the providers of these contents (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") are aware of the IP address of the users. Without the IP address, they would not be able to send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore necessary for the display of this content. We endeavour to use only such content whose respective providers use the IP address only to deliver the content. However, we have no influence on this if the third-party providers store the IP address for statistical purposes, for example. As far as this becomes known to us, we will inform the users about it.
USE OF EXTERNAL LINKS
PART 3: COOKIES AND ONLINE MARKETING TOOLS
Cookies & range measurement
The viewing of this online offer is also possible under exclusion of cookies. If users do not want cookies to be stored on their computer, they are asked to deactivate the corresponding option in the system settings of their browser. Stored cookies can be deleted in the system settings of the browser. The exclusion of cookies can lead to functional restrictions of this online offer.
There is the possibility of many online ad cookies from companies through the US site http://www.aboutads.info/choices or the EU side http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/ to manage.
USE OF NEWSLETTER DISPATCH
In order to send newsletters, which inform about the topics of the Gradido Academy and our offer, we use an e-mail newsletter dispatch platform.
If you would like to subscribe to the Gradido Academy newsletter and read it regularly, then your registration with a valid e-mail address is required. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. Please use the link provided in the newsletter.
Before sending the newsletter, you must expressly confirm to us in the so-called double opt-in procedure that we may activate the newsletter service for you. For this purpose, you will receive a confirmation and authorization e-mail from us, in which we ask you to click on the link contained in this e-mail and thus confirm to us that you wish to receive our newsletter. Further data will not be collected. We use this e-mail address exclusively for the delivery of the newsletter unless you have expressly agreed to another use in the double opt-in procedure or later.
When you register for the newsletter, our newsletter dispatch system saves your IP address and the date of registration. This storage serves only as proof in the event that a third party misuses an email address and registers to receive the newsletter without the knowledge of the entitled person.
The dispatch of the newsletter is done by "Click Tip", a newsletter dispatch platform of the provider CLICK TIP LIMITED, 15 Cambridge Court, 210 Shepherd's Bush Road, London W6 7NJ, United Kingdom.
The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described in this notice, are stored on the servers of Klick-Tipp. Klick-Tipp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. In addition, Klick-Tipp may use this data according to its own information to optimise or improve its own services, e.g. for technical optimisation of the dispatch and presentation of the newsletters or for economic purposes to determine the countries from which the recipients come. However, Klick-Tipp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them itself or pass it on to third parties.
We trust in the reliability and IT and data security of Klick-Tipp. Klick-Tipp thus undertakes to comply with the EU data protection regulations. We have also concluded a contract with Klick-Tipp. This is a contract in which Klick-Tipp undertakes to protect the data of our users, to process it on our behalf in accordance with its data protection regulations and in particular not to pass it on to third parties. You can view Klick-Tipp's data protection regulations here: https://www.klick-tipp.com/datenschutzerklärung
USE OF STATIFY
In order to be able to measure the call of certain pages and their attractiveness for the user, we use the analysis tool of Statify, developed as open source by the plugin collective (https://de.wordpress.org/plugins/statify/).
Statify provides a compact overview of the number of page views and does not store or process personal data such as IP addresses. Statify statistically evaluates the most frequently visited pages by counting page impressions, not visitors. In addition, page views are only stored for a limited period of time (standard: two weeks), which can be individually adjusted.
By evaluating the number of clicks on our pages, we have the opportunity to continuously improve our online offering for users.
PART 4: INTEGRATION OF EXTERNAL SERVICES + CONTENT
USE OF YOUTUBE VIDEOS
For the integration of videos we use the provider YouTube among others. YouTube is operated by YouTube LLC with headquarters at 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube is represented by Google Inc. with headquarters at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
On some of our Internet pages we use plugins from the provider YouTube. If you call up the Internet pages of our Internet presence equipped with such a plug-in - for example our media library - a connection to the YouTube servers is established and the plug-in is displayed. This tells the YouTube server which of our Internet pages you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of YouTube, YouTube assigns this information to your personal user account. If you use the plugin, e.g. by clicking on the start button of a video, this information is also assigned to your user account. You can prevent this association by logging out of your YouTube account and other accounts of the companies YouTube LLC and Google Inc. before using our website and deleting the corresponding cookies of the companies.

USE OF VIMEO VIDEOS
For the integration of videos we use the provider Vimeo, among others. Vimeo is operated by Vimeo, LLC with headquarters at 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011.
On some of our Internet pages we use plugins from the provider Vimeo. When you access the Internet pages of our website that are equipped with such a plug-in - for example, our media library - a connection to the Vimeo servers is established and the plug-in is displayed. This tells the Vimeo server which of our Internet pages you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of Vimeo, Vimeo assigns this information to your personal user account. When you use the plugin, such as when you click on the start button of a video, this information is also assigned to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your Vimeo user account before using our website and deleting the corresponding cookies from Vimeo.
Further information on data processing and information on data protection by Vimeo can be found at https://vimeo.com/privacy.
PART 5: SOCIAL MEDIA SHARING BUTTONS
ONLINE PRESENCE IN SOCIAL MEDIA
We maintain online presences within social networks and platforms in order to be able to communicate with the customers, interested parties and users active there and to inform them about our services.

USE OF SHARING FUNCTION FOR SOCIAL NETWORKS (SHARIFF)

By clicking on the corresponding graphic, you will be redirected to the services of the respective network. The Shariff button establishes direct contact between the social network and our visitors only when the visitor actively clicks on the share button. Only then will your data be transmitted to the respective social network. If the Shariff Button is not clicked, however, no exchange of data between you and the social networks takes place. You can find more information about the c't project "Shariff" at https://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/Shariff-Social-Media-Buttons-mit-Datenschutz-2467514.html

PART 7: SAFETY
SYSTEM AND INFORMATION SECURITY
We secure our website and other systems by technical and organizational measures against loss, destruction, access, modification or distribution of the stored data by unauthorized persons. However, despite controls, complete protection against all dangers is not possible. The connection to the internet and the technical possibilities resulting from it alone do not guarantee that contents and the flow of information cannot be viewed and recorded by third parties.
ENCRYPTION BY SSL
For security reasons we use SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption for our website. This protects transmitted data and prevents it from being read by third parties. You can recognize a successful encryption by the fact that the protocol designation in the status bar of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and that a closed lock symbol is visible there.
PART 8: RIGHTS CONCERNED
DELETION OF DATA
The data processed by us will be deleted or restricted in their processing in accordance with articles 17 and 18 DSGVO. Unless expressly stated in this data protection declaration, the data stored by us will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for their intended purpose and the deletion does not conflict with any statutory storage obligations. If the data are not deleted because they are required for other and legally permissible purposes, their processing will be restricted. This means that the data is blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be retained for commercial or tax law reasons.
According to legal requirements in Germany, the storage is for 6 years according to § 257 para. 1 HGB (commercial books, inventories, opening balance sheets, annual financial statements, commercial letters, accounting vouchers, etc.) and for 10 years according to § 147 para. 1 AO (books, records, management reports, accounting vouchers, commercial and business letters, documents relevant for taxation, etc.).
