In principle, we only collect and use personal data of our users to the extent necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services. We collect and use the personal data of our users periodically, and only with the user’s consent. An exception applies, for example, in cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for reasons of circumstance and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

  1. Legal basis for processing personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing personal data, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies as the legal basis for processing personal data.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require a processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 d) of the GDPR applies as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR applies as the legal basis for processing.

  1. Data deletion and storage duration

The data subject’s personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the responsible party is subject. Data is also blocked or deleted once a retention period prescribed by the specified standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data in order to conclude or fulfill a contract.

  1. Disclosure of data to third parties and third-party providers

Data is only passed on to third parties within the scope of legal requirements, i.e., for example, on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR, if this is necessary for contractual purposes, or on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR due to legitimate interests.

If we make use of the services of third parties, we will take appropriate legal precautions and appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect personal data. The third parties have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are bound by our instructions and are regularly checked.

Data is only transferred to third countries where the GDPR is not a directly applicable law if there is an adequate level of data protection, we have the consent of the user, or other legal permission to do so.

VIII. Use of social media plug-ins

  1. Description and scope of data processing

We currently use the following social media plug-ins: Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, eKomi

We use the ‘two-click solution’ here. In other words, when you visit our site, initially no personal data is passed on to the providers of the plug-ins. You can recognize the provider of the plug-in by the marking on the box above its initial letter or the logo. We give you the opportunity to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only if you click on the marked field and activate it will the plug-in provider receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online offer. In addition, the following data is transmitted:
(1) Information about the browser type and version used
(2) The user’s operating system
(3) The user’s Internet service provider
(4) The user’s IP address
(5) The date and time of access

In the case of Facebook, the IP address is anonymised immediately after collection, according to details provided by the relevant provider in Germany. By activating the plug-in, your personal data will be transmitted to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (with US providers in the USA). Since the plug-in provider collects data mainly via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies using your browser’s security settings before clicking on the greyed-out box.

We have no control over the collected data and the data processing operations, nor are we aware of the full scope of the data collection.

The data transfer takes place regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider or are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, your data collected from us will be assigned directly to your existing account with the plug-in provider. When you click the activated button and link the page, for example, the plug-in provider also stores this information in your user account and communicates this to your contacts in public. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, especially before activating the button, as this way you can avoid things being assigned to your profile with the plug-in provider.

​2. Legal basis for the data processing​

The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR.

  1. Purpose of the data processing

The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses these for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such evaluation is also made for users who are not logged in, to display customised advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website.

For these purposes, there is also a legitimate interest in data processing in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR.

  1. Duration of retention

The exact storage periods of the data are not known to us. We also have no information on the circumstances of the deletion of the data collected.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is enabled on this website, your IP address will first be truncated by Google within the Member States of the European Union or other parties to the agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the entire IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide the website operator with further services associated with the use of the website and the internet.

Google Analytics will not collate your IP address transmitted by your browser with other Google data.

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This shortens the processing of IP addresses and prevents direct personal identification. If the data collected about you are identifiable to you personally, they will be blocked immediately and the personal data deleted as soon as possible.

​2. Legal basis for the data processing​

The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR.

  1. Google fonts

This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google so as to be able to uniformly display fonts. When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

To do this, the browser you use must connect to Google’s servers. As a result, Google learns that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a consistent and attractive presentation of our online offerings. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font will be used by your computer.

Further information about handling user data can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s privacy policy at: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

  1. Facebook pixel

Within our website, we use the “Facebook pixel” of the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. So-called tracking pixels are integrated on our pages. When you visit our site, a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server is established via the plugin.

Among other things, Facebook thereby receives the information from your browser that our website has been called up by your device. If you are a Facebook user, this allows Facebook to associate your visit to our pages with your user account. Please note that, as the provider of this site, we have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted to Facebook or of how Facebook uses this data. We can only select which segments of Facebook users (such as age, interests) our advertising should be displayed.
By calling up the pixel from your browser, Facebook can also recognise whether a Facebook ad was successful, e.g. if it led to an online purchase. This allows us to track the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes.

In doing so, we use a method in which no data records, in particular no email addresses of our users – either encrypted or unencrypted – are transmitted to Facebook. For more information about this, please see Facebook’s privacy policy at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. Please click here if you do not want any data captured via Facebook pixels: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads#_=_. Alternatively, you can deactivate the Facebook pixel on the Digital Advertising Alliance’s website, which can be accessed at the following link: https://www.aboutads.info/choices/

We make use of the independent rating portal eKomi, which is operated by eKomi Ltd., Markgrafenstr. 11, 10969 Berlin, Germany. We would like to constantly improve ourselves and our service, which is why we decided to use such a solution. Accordingly, we are not able to individually control or influence rating invitations. A rating is requested for every order of MYDECK designer boards or accessories. Only in this way is it possible to guarantee a rating for our company and our services that is complete, independent, and which we cannot influence as a shop. The data transferred to eKomi for this purpose (title, name, email address, if available: telephone number, product name, product ID) are passed on to eKomi and are neither used by eKomi nor passed on to third parties – only the rating is transmitted to Google. You, as a customer, are free to choose whether to submit a rating. By submitting a rating/feedback, you agree to the current eKomi communication rules.

XIII. YouTube videos

To embed videos, this site uses YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, represented by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Normally, your IP address is already sent to YouTube and cookies are installed on your computer when you visit a page with embedded videos. However, we have included our YouTube videos in the enhanced privacy mode (in which case YouTube will still contact Google’s Double Click service, but Google’s privacy policy does not evaluate personal information). As a result, YouTube does not store any information about the visitors unless they watch the video. When you click on the video, your IP address will be transmitted to YouTube and YouTube will know that you have watched the video. If you are logged in to YouTube, this information will also be associated with your user account (you can prevent this by logging out of YouTube before calling up the video).

We have no knowledge of or influence over any possible collection and use of your data by YouTube that then occurs.

  1. Rights of the data subject

If your personal data is processed, you are a data subject for the purposes of the GDPR and you have the following rights vis-à-vis the data controller:

  1. The right to information

You may ask the data controller to confirm if personal data concerning you is processed by us.
If such processing is undertaken, you may request information from the data controller about the following information:
(1) the purposes for which the personal information is processed;
(2) the categories of personal data being processed;
(3) the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data relating to you have been disclosed or are still being disclosed;
(4) the planned duration of the storage of your personal data or, if specific information is not available, criteria for determining the retention period;
(5) the existence of a right to rectification or erasure of personal data concerning you, a right to restriction of processing by the data controller, or a right to object to such processing;
(6) the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;
(7) all available information on the source of the data if the personal data are not collected from the data subject;
(8) the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling according to Art. 22 para. 1 and 4 of the GDPR and – at least in these cases – meaningful information on the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject.
You have the right to request information regarding whether your personal information will be transmitted to a third-party country or an international organisation. In this respect, you can request the appropriate guarantees in accordance with Art. 46 GDPR in connection with the transmission.

  1. The right of rectification

You have a right of rectification and/or completion with respect to the responsible party if the personal data processed concerning you is incorrect or incomplete. The responsible party must make the correction immediately.

  1. The right to restriction of processing

You may request the restriction of the processing of your personal data under the following conditions:
(1) If you dispute the accuracy of your personal information for a period of time that enables the data controller to verify the accuracy of your personal information;
(2) The processing is unlawful and you refuse the deletion of the personal data and instead demand the restriction of the use of the personal data;
(3) The data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or
(4) If you object to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the data controller’s legitimate reasons for processing your data outweigh your interests.
If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, then – apart from their storage – this data may only be processed with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of an important public interest on the part of the Union or a Member State.
If the processing restriction has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the responsible party before the restriction has been lifted.

  1. The right to deletion (right to be forgotten)
  2. a) Obligation to delete
    You may demand the data controller delete the personal data concerning you without delay, and the data controller is obliged to delete that data without delay if one of the following reasons applies:
    (1) The personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed
    (2) You revoke your consent upon which its processing was based in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (a) or Art. 9 para. 2 (a) GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
    (3) You object to processing in accordance with Art. 21 para. 1 of the GDPR, and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for processing, or you submit an objection to processing in accordance with Art. 21 para. 2 of the GDPR.
    (4) Your personal data has been processed unlawfully.
    (5) The deletion of personal data relating to you is required in order to comply with legal obligations according to EU law or national law of the Member States to which the data controller is subject.
    (6) The personal data concerning you were provided in relation to information society services offered under Article 8 para. 1 GDPR
    b) Information to third parties
    If the data controller has made the personal data relating to you public and is obliged to delete the data in accordance with. Art. 17 para. 1 GDPR, it shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the technology available and the implementation costs, to inform data controllers who process the personal data that you, as data subject, have requested they delete the data, including all links to such personal data or copies or replications of such personal data.
    c) Exceptions
    The right to erasure does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary
    (1) to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information;
    (2) to fulfil a legal obligation which requires such processing under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject, or to perform a task that is in the public interest, or in the exercise of official authority that has been conferred on the data controller;
    (3) for reasons of public interest in the field of public health, in accordance with Art. 9 para. 2 (h) and (i), as well as Art. 9 para. 3 GDPR;
    (4) for archiving, scientific, or historical research purposes in the public interest or for statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89 para. 1 GDPR, to the extent that the law referred to in section (a) is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudice the attainment of the objectives of such processing, or
    5) to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
  3. Right to information

If you have asserted the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing to the data controller, it is obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you has been disclosed of this rectification or erasure of the data or the restriction of its processing, unless this proves to be impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. You have the right to be informed about who these recipients are.

  1. The right of data portability

You have the right to obtain your personal data that you have provided to the data controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to transfer this data to another data controller without hindrance by the data controller who was provided with the personal data, provided that (1) the processing is based on consent in accordance with Art. Art. 6 para. 1 (a) of the GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 (a) of the GDPR or on a contract in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR and
(b) the processing is carried out using automated procedures.
In exercising this right, you also have the right to bring about that the personal data relating to you are transmitted directly from one data controller to another data controller, as far as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.
The right to data portability shall not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the responsible party.

  1. The right of objection

You have the right, for reasons arising from your specific situation, to object to the processing of personal data concerning you at any time, which is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 (e) or (f) of the GDPR; the same applies to profiling based on these provisions. Data protection is very important to Berliner Platz.
The data controller will no longer process the personal data relating to you unless they can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing, which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If the personal data relating to you are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing.
If you object to processing that is for direct marketing purposes, the personal data that concerns you will no longer be processed for these purposes.
You have the option of exercising your right of objection in connection with the use of Information Society services by means of automated procedures using technical specifications, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.

  1. The right to revoke the data protection declaration of consent

You have the right at any time to revoke your data protection declaration of consent. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its revocation.

  1. Automated decision in individual cases, including profiling

You have the right not to be subjected to a decision based solely on automated processing – including profiling – that will have a legal effect on you or significantly affect you in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision
(1) is required for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the data controller,
(2) is permitted by Union or Member State legislation to which the data controller is subject, and that legislation is adequate to protect your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, or
(3) is made with your express consent.
However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 para. 1 GDPR, unless Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. a or g applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.
In the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the responsible party shall take reasonable measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the responsible party, to state his or her own position and to challenge the decision.

  1. The right of appeal to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State where you reside, work or where the infringement is suspected, if you believe that the processing of personal data that concerns you is in contravention of GDPR.
The supervisory authority with which the appeal has been filed shall inform the appellant of the status and results of the appeal, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Art. 78 GDPR.
