Privacy policy

Since 25.05.2018 a new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been in force, which is meant to guarantee your fundamental rights and freedoms with regard to the protection of your personal data.

Personal data is data that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person. A natural person is deemed to be identifiable if they can be directly or indirectly identified by being ascribed to an identifier such as a name or the like.

Controller

We are the controlling website operator in the meaning of the above-mentioned legislation:

hide[m]
Rosenheimer Straße 44
81669 Munich
Germany
+49 172 8111704
info@hide-m.com

Provision of the website

Each time you access our website the system automatically records data and information from your computer system.

During this process our web server temporarily stores each access to / retrieval of a file on our website, whereupon the following data (some of which is not personal data) is recorded and stored until it is automatically erased:

  • IP address of the requesting computer,
  • date and time of the access,
  • name and URL of the file called up,
  • a report as to whether the access was successful,
  • identification data of the browser used,
  • the website from which the access occurred.

The purpose of the storage

That data, some of which is not personal data, is processed solely for the purpose of enabling use of the website (establishing a connection), ensuring system security and optimising our Internet service. Without that storage in the log files our website could not be displayed on your computer. It is not possible for us to ascribe the recorded data to a particular natural person (non-personal data), unless the link to your website from which you arrive on our website contains personal data. The non-personal data is not stored together with the personal data.

Furthermore, on no account will that data be analysed for marketing purposes / disclosed to third parties.

Legal basis

Pursuant to Article 6(1) point (f) GDPR, that processing is temporarily permissible in the interests of the maintenance of our website.

Data storage period

Pursuant to Article 5(1) point (e) GDPR, data may not be stored longer than is necessary. All the data will be erased immediately after you leave the website (also in the case of possible inferences regarding personal data). It will therefore only be stored for the duration of your use of the website.

The user’s rights

We refer generally to our description of your rights as a user. Only in this specific case do we additionally refer to the:

right of objection

Since the data is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website, there is no right of objection under Article 21 GDPR and therefore also no right to erasure.

Newsletter

If you are interested you may also register on our website for our free newsletter. In the registration process there is a separate field where you can enter your e-mail address. You then tick the “sign in” box and go to “send”.
Stored data
In this context the personal data entered by you will be used:

  • e-mail address

In connection with the process of submitting the request for the provision of the newsletter, the following data (some of which is not personal data) will also be stored:

  • IP address of the requesting computer,
  • date and time of the access,
  • name and URL of the file called up,
  • a report as to whether the request was successful,
  • identification data of the browser used,
  • the website from which the access occurred.

The purpose of the storage

With the newsletter we can inform you of current offers and also promptly inform you of changes and additions to our product range, as well as providing new purchases impulses and strengthening our relationship with our customers. To enable the newsletter to be mailed uniformly, the personal data is required, specifically the e-mail address or mailing address for mailing by post. In addition, the data (some of which is not personal data) is stored in order to ensure that the registration for the newsletter originates from you.

Data storage period

All the personal data for the mailing of the newsletter will be stored by us. You may unsubscribe from the newsletter, whereupon the data will no longer be used. If the matter has been legally concluded, the data will then be finally erased.
The data (in some cases non-personal) which is additionally collected will, if you order the newsletter, be erased when the session ends, and no later than after approximately seven days.

Legal basis

On the basis of the registration on the website you also have the possibility of registering for the newsletter, as provided for in Article 7 par. III of the German Unfair Competition Act (Gesetz gegen den unlauteren Wettbewerb).
The right to process the data for this purpose arises from the consent under Article 6(1) point (a) GDPR.
Double opt-in procedure for newsletter mailing
For the mailing of the newsletter we use the double opt-in procedure. That means we will only send you the newsletter if you confirm your registration after the provision of your e-mail address via an email sent by us and a link contained in it (e-mail registration followed by further confirmation after receiving an e-mail). This is intended to ensure that only you yourself can register with the newsletter service as the user of the specified e-mail address. You must issue your confirmation promptly after we send you our e-mail, otherwise your registration and e-mail address will be erased from our database.

The user’s rights

We refer generally to our description of your rights as a user. Only in this specific case do we additionally refer to the:

right to rectification/erasure/restriction of the processing and withdrawal of consent

However, you may cancel your subscription for our newsletter at any time with effect for the future (right to erasure). To do so, you can either send us an e-mail or tick the “sign out” box. With regard to the right to erasure of the data for the past we refer to in the point “Data storage period”.

E-mail contact

You can send us an e-mail at any time. You will find a clickable e-mail address for that purpose in our site legal notice. However, the e-mail will be sent via another tool, for example your e-mail client. Because we have no influence over it, with regard to data protection we must refer you to the policy and declarations of your e-mail client.

However, if we receive an e-mail from you we will store the e-mail data, such as:

  • e-mail address, and
  • the information contained in the e-mail.

The purpose of the data storage

The data will be stored so that we can comprehensively process your e-mail in line with customer requirements and fulfil our legal obligations. The data that we receive from you will not be passed on to any third parties.

Legal basis

The legal basis for the processing of data in the course of the transmission of an e-mail is Article 6(1) points (c) and (f) GDPR. If a contract is then concluded Article 6(1) point (b) GDPR also applies.

Data storage period

The data that we receive through your e-mail will be erased once the purpose has been achieved and in accordance with the legal regulations.

In any event the purpose is communication, which ends when the circumstances indicate that the issue in question has been conclusively clarified.

If a contract has been concluded or other disputes exist, the data will be stored until the process has been legally completed, taking legal regulations into account.

However, we may be legally required to archive your e-mail for a longer period.

The user’s rights

We refer generally to our description of your rights as a user. Only in this specific case do we additionally refer to the:

right of objection

Links to websites of other providers

Our website may contain links to webpages of other websites or providers. Please note that this privacy policy applies exclusively for our website www.hide-m.com. We have no influence or control as to whether other providers comply with the applicable data protection laws. As soon as we learn of a violation of provisions of law by those third-party websites we shall immediately remove the link.

Vimeo plug-in

Our website uses plug-ins of the video provider Vimeo Inc., 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.

With regard to the collection of the data by Vimeo two basic cases must be distinguished.
If you access our website, information on your use of this website (such as your IP address) will be transferred by vimeo to vimeo servers in the USA and stored there. This occurs irrespective of whether vimeo provides you with a user account through which you are logged on. Vimeo shall then only have that data.

If you are logged into vimeo at the time, for example because you have opened an account with vimeo, vimeo will directly ascribe your data to your account. To prevent this it is best to log out of vimeo before using our website.
