We are committed to ensuring that you can rely on the protection of your personal data by our company at all times, and know how our company both uses your data and ensures its protection.

This privacy policy informs you about the processing of personal data (referred to below as the "data") by our company when you make use of the services offered by our website.

3. Contact data of our Data Protection Officer

Michael Mayer, datenschutz@pons.de

 

 

4. Processing of personal data

Your data is processed and used in compliance with the applicable statutory regulations, in particular the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (referred to below as the "GDPR").

 

4.1 Webshop orders

 

Why and on what legal basis is data processed?

When you place an order with our online shop, the data required for the establishment of a purchase contract and the processing of the order is recorded. The data includes your full name, email address, invoice address and, if necessary, the delivery address. The data is processed for the purpose of assigning the order to you as well as for the delivery of the goods and, if necessary, sending you an invoice, together with the processing of payment and clarification of possible legal claims. If you order media on concessionary terms, we also process your data in order to check if the preconditions for this are met.

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 Section 1 b) GDPR. If you wish you can create a customer account for future orders (registration). In this case your customer data is saved so that it can also be used for future orders placed with our online shop, without having to enter it once more. When you register an account you also need to set a password (access data), so that access to this account is only available to you. In accordance with Art. 6 Section 1 b) GDPR, we have the right to process the data you provide on registration, to the extent that this is necessary for the establishment or fulfilment of a contract. In addition we may process your data in accordance with Art. 6 Section 1 f) GDPR for the purpose of simplifying your future orders.

If you have provided your consent by activating the relevant checkbox we are also permitted, in accordance with Art. 6 Section 1 a) and if relevant 1 f) GDPR, to process any data which you have voluntarily provided us with when placing an order or registering an account. Such data may refer to your company/school and similar details. The processing of these voluntarily provided details is implemented so that we can get in touch with you faster in the event of delivery problems. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 Section 1 a) and if relevant 1 f) GDPR.

 

Is data passed on to other parties?

We pass on data, at least in part, to the following external processors and other recipients for the purposes described below:

Collection agencies

Data is only passed on for the collection of debts from customers who fail to pay the purchase price of goods.

for further recipients see 4.5.1 below

 

In relation to orders placed with our webshop we are jointly responsible for the processing of your data together with Stuttgarter Verlagskontor GmbH, Rotebühlstr. 77, 70178 Stuttgart (referred to below as "SVK"). SVK accepts the order, enters the relevant data into the database, sends off the goods, issues the invoice and collects the invoice amount in its own name and for its own account ("non-recourse factoring"). We therefore pass on your order data to SVK for this purpose.

The legal basis for the transfer of data to SVK is Art. 6 Section 1 f GDPR. The publishing company and SVK are affiliates within the Klett Bildungsgruppe corporation. We therefore have a legitimate interest in transferring data to SVK for internal administrative purposes, because this is the only way that SVK can collect the price of their purchases from our customers.

The publishing company and SVK have concluded an agreement covering their respective responsibilities under data protection regulations, and the main elements of this agreement can be made available to you by email on request.

Orders from Switzerland and Austria are passed on to our partners in these countries:

Switzerland: Balmer Bücherdienst AG, Kobiboden, CH-8840 Einsiedeln.

Austria: Medienlogistik Pichler - ÖBZ GmbH&Co. KG, PO Box 133, A-2355 Wiener Neudorf.

 

Do I have to enter my data?

There is no legal or contractual requirement for you to provide your data. However, for the purpose of establishing a purchase contract with us your name, address and email address are required as a minimum. Otherwise we will not be able to send the order to your address, or provide you with confirmation of your order by email. With all forms of payment except for purchases made on account the entry of payment data is necessary, because otherwise we will not be able to debit your account or credit card with the agreed price. In order to conclude a contract with us, no further details or registration are necessary.

 

When will my data be deleted at the latest?

We have the right to save data until the final fulfilment of the individual contract. In the case of purchase contracts, we can save data until the receipt of payment and for a period of up to 2 years after the goods have been delivered. If the saving of data is necessary for the purpose of compliance with our legal obligations in accordance with Art. 6 Section 1 c) GDPR, in conjunction with Germany's Commercial Code or tax regulations, we have the right to save such data until the expiry of the retention periods which the applicable laws and regulations stipulate. This can lead to a retention period of up to 7 years. Unless we have the right or obligation to retain the data for a longer period of time for the reasons which are outlined above, the data you enter when you register an account with us will either be deleted as soon as possible at your request, or at the latest four years after you place your last order.

 

4.2 Advertising

In rare cases we also use your data to send you advertising by post or email for our products, provided that you have been a customer for three years, have provided us with your postal or email address, and have not refused your consent to such advertising (with regard to your right of refusal, please see 5.4). The processing of your data is implemented on the basis of Art. 6 Section 1 f) GDPR. We have a legitimate business interest in sending advertising by post or email to our customer base.

 

4.3 Making contact

Any data you enter on our contact form or communicate to us by email or otherwise will be processed so that we can deal with and reply to your enquiry. If desired, it will also be processed for the purpose of sending a copy of your enquiry to your own email address.

In accordance with Art. 6 Section 1 a) GDPR, we can process the data you have entered on our contact form, provided that you have given your consent to this by clicking on the "Send message" button. If you enter sensitive information in the "Message" field which contains specific categories of data (e.g. your origins, political opinions, religion, medical data), you also give your consent to the processing of such data. If you send us the data by email or in some other form, the legal basis will be Art. 6 Section 1 f) and if relevant 1 b) GDPR.

The data concerned will be deleted at the latest 24 months after the receipt of your enquiry, unless we are entitled or obliged to save it for a longer period on the basis of legal requirements in conjunction with Art. 6 Section 1 c) GDPR. This may lead to a maximum retention period of seven years.

We provide your contact enquiry to the external processors stated under 4.1 and 4.6.1, and if appropriate also to the following recipients:

Prospero GmbH                                            Müllerstrasse 27, 80469 Munich

Telemarkt GmbH & Co. KG                          Zinkmattenstraße 6a, 79108 Freiburg.

 

 4.4 Job Applications

If you apply to us for a job, your data will - on the basis of Art. 6 Section P. 1 a) and Art. 88 GDPR in conjunction with § 26 Section 1 P. 1 of the Federal Data Protection Act / GDPR - be processed for the purpose of making a decision on the establishment of an employment relationship with you. For the purpose of dealing with the application, the data will be stored by us for a period of six months from the conclusion of the application process, after which it will be deleted. If you take up employment with us on the conclusion of the application process, the processing of your data beyond this time is permitted in accordance with the above legal basis for the purpose of establishing and implementing an employment relationship.

You are not required to provide your personal data either contractually or in legal terms. However, an online application is not possible without the provision and saving of data. If you voluntarily provide us with special categories of data, including details of your origins, political, religious or ideological convictions, membership of a trade union, medical condition or sexual orientation, you also provide your consent to the processing of this data. Such processing will only take place to the extent that is absolutely necessary for the above-mentioned purposes. You are expressly requested not to communicate such data to us.

 

4.5 Newsletter

If you have subscribed to a newsletter distributed by our publishing company, we will process your email address for the purpose of sending you our newsletter on a regular basis. When you subscribe to the newsletter you will receive from us an email with a link for the purpose of verifying your email address.

The legal basis for sending you the newsletter is your consent, which you provide us with on subscribing to the newsletter (Art. 6 Section 1 a) GDPR). The provision of data on your part is not mandatory, but your email address is required for the distribution of the newsletter. The entry of your name, title and place of residence is voluntary and serves the purpose of enabling us to address you in person and inform you about events in your area. Any data you have provided us with as part of your subscription to the newsletter will be deleted as soon as you unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can unsubscribe at any time by, for example, clicking on the relevant link at the foot of each newsletter (on the withdrawal of your consent, please see 5.5). When you cancel your subscription to the newsletter you will also no longer receive any promotional emails as described in Section 4.2.

4.6.4 Web analysis by Google Analytics

On our website we use the Google Analytics service. This is an analytical service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (Google). Google uses cookies (see 4.6.2 above). The information generated by the cookie about your use of our website is as a rule transmitted to Google in the USA, and processed there. The same applies to your anonymised IP address. In addition, Google Analytics analyses the data contained in the log files, the Internet address of the website which you accessed before your visit to our website (referrer URL), and the search term with which you found our website via a search engine.

Google processes the data on our behalf in order to evaluate the use of our website and compile reports on the activities on our website. Google uses the data contained in the log files, for example, in order to compile statistics on the frequency with which our website is accessed. In this process pseudonymised user profiles of visitors can be created on the basis of the processed data.

We only apply Google Analytics with activated IP anonymisation. This means that within the member states of the European Union or in the European Economic Area your IP address is truncated by Google. Only in exceptional cases will be the full IP address be transmitted to Google in the USA and then truncated there.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser as described above. You can also prevent the processing of data generated by the cookie by downloading and installing the plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. With effect for our website an opt-out cookie is set in the browser which you are currently using. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you will need to click on this link again. If you use several devices or browsers, you must click on this link for each individual device in each individual browser.

For the exceptional cases in which Google transmits data to the USA, Google has subjected itself to the "EU-US Privacy Shield". The European Commission has decided in its adequacy decision (EU) 2016/1250 that this will ensure an adequate level of data protection.

The data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 Section 1 f) GDPR and - if you are a Google customer – where applicable on the basis of Art. 6 Section 1 Section a) or b) GDPR. We have a legitimate economic interest in using the evaluation of the above statistics to adapt our website to the needs of visitors and to use these statistics for internal market research. The provision of this data is not mandatory and is not necessary for the purpose of concluding a contract with us

For further information about Google Analytics please see the following Google website: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.

 

4.6.5 Web analysis by the "scalable central measurement system"

We use the "scalable central measurement system" (referred to below as the "SZM") provided by INFOnline GmbH, Brühler Straße 9, 53119 Bonn, Germany. The SZM sets cookies on our behalf (see 4.6.2 above). The purpose of the SZM is to obtain statistics on the use of our website so that we can prove to our advertising partners the amount of traffic on our website, i.e. the number of visitors and the intensity of their use of our website. We can also use the SZM to determine which groups of people visit our website so that we can tailor the advertising on our website more closely to their interests. IP addresses are truncated before being transmitted to INFOnline, so that individual visitors to our website cannot be identified. Further information on the SZM can be found at https://www.infonline.de.

 

The data is processed in accordance with Art. 6 Section 1 f) GDPR on the basis of the interests mentioned under 4.6.2. In addition, we have an interest in showing visitors to our website advertising which will be suited to their interests, and to sell advertising space on our website to advertising partners.

 

For the purpose of market research and the display of interest-oriented advertising, the statistical data determined by the SZM is transmitted in anonymised form to the following organisations: Informationgemeinschaft zur Feststellung der Verbreitung von Werbeträgern e.V. (IVW), Arbeitsgemeinschaft Online-Forschung e.V. and Arbeitsgemeinschaft Media-Analyse e.V..

 

The provision of your data for the SZM is on a voluntary basis. However, as a rule browsers automatically accept cookies. If you wish you can reject the SZM measurement by setting an opt-out cookie. If you wish to set an opt-out cookie, please click here. If you delete your cookies you need to click on this link once more. If you use several devices or browsers, you need to click on this link once more for each individual device in each individual browser. As described in 4.6.2 above you can also prevent the setting of cookies and accordingly the use of the SZM by making the appropriate setting in your browser.

 

The truncated IP addresses are saved for a maximum of 60 days, and the data recorded by the SZM for a maximum of six months.

 

4.6.6 Web analysis with Hotjar

"Hotjar" is an analytical software programme. We use Hotjar in order to identify possibilities for improving our website, diagnosing technical problems, analysing user trends and optimising the website in general.

Cookies

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are sent when visiting a website and stored in the user's browser. If the corresponding website is called up again, the user's browser sends back the contents of the cookies and thus enables recognition of the user. Certain cookies are automatically deleted at the end of the browser session (so-called session cookies), others are stored for a specified time or permanently in the user's browser and then delete themselves independently (so-called temporary or permanent cookies).

What data is stored in the cookies?

No personal data is stored in cookies, only an online identification.

How can you prevent the use of cookies or delete cookies?

You can deactivate the storage of cookies via your browser settings and delete cookies already stored in your browser at any time (see section on Technical information). Please note, however, that without cookies our website may not function or may only function to a limited extent.

We use analysis cookies to record and statistically evaluate the usage behaviour (e.g. clicked advertising banners, sub-pages visited, search queries made) by our users.

Advertising cookies

Third-party advertising cookies

We also allow other companies to collect information from our users by means of advertising cookies. This enables us and third parties to display interest-based advertising to users of our online offering based on an analysis of their usage behaviour (e.g. clicked advertising banners, sub-pages visited, search queries made) in total and not limited to our online offer.

Yieldlove delivers advertising banners on behalf of its customers. All our banners use cookies. We place these banners on third-party websites, such as a news pages, with the help of third-party providers.

The collected user information includes user agent, device, HTTP referrer and IP address. This data will not be kept for longer than 7 days.

Yieldlove takes reasonable steps to protect all information we process from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, alteration or disclosure. We take physical, electronic and procedural security measures to protect the data we process. This restricts access to this information to authorised employees.

For the cookies placed by our third-party providers for advertising purposes, we refer to the disclaimers they have made available on their own websites. Please note that we can only refer to these disclaimers as they change regularly and Yieldlove has no influence on them.

For the purpose of the processing of your data by Facebook and your rights in this respect, please see the Facebook privacy policy: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php. We have no influence on the processing of data by Facebook. If you object to such an exchange of data between Facebook and ourselves, you should avoid registering with us via your Facebook account.

4.6.12 Special data protection provisions relating to the "PONS ONLINE DICTIONARY"

In addition to the remaining terms of our privacy policy, the following applies to our "PONS ONLINE DICTIONARY":

 

If you register with the "PONS ONLINE DICTIONARY" service, the processing of your data enables you to create your user account and your profile (so-called "visiting card"), so that other registered users can find out more about you and get in touch with you, the creation of personal vocabulary lists and the identification of your posts with the user name you select when you register.

 

In accordance with Art. 6 Section 1 b GDPR, the legal basis for this – if you have entered data in input fields which are not designated as mandatory – is your consent (Art. 6 Section 1 a GDPR). If and when you delete your user account, your data will also be deleted immediately. The data will be deleted at the latest if you have not signed in for a period of four years, unless the posts are relevant for copyright purposes. In this case the applicable periods will be determined by copyright legislation.

 

In addition to those mentioned above, additional recipients of the data will be all other registered users of the "PONS ONLINE DICTIONARY", who can view the data in your "visiting card" and your posts.

 

The processing of your data is not a requirement. The "PONS ONLINE DICTIONARY" can also be used without the provision of additional data. However, to register with the "PONS ONLINE DICTIONARY" the minimum requirement is the entry of your email address and user name, so that we can send you confirmation of your registration and you can log in later with your user name. You can select a pseudonym as your user name. All other information you provide is on a voluntary basis. However, if you do not register, many functions of the "PONS ONLINE DICTIONARY" will not be available to you (e.g. changing or adding dictionary entries, access to forums, the sharing of posts and sharing personal vocabulary lists).

 

 

5. Rights of data subjects

If your data is processed by us you are a 'data subject' as defined by the GDPR, and you have the following rights in relation to the responsible party. You can assert all of these rights by sending an email to kundenservice@pons.de or to one of the addresses indicated in Sections 2 and 3.

 

5.1 The right to information and data transferability

In accordance with Art. 15 GDPR you have the right to require us to provide you with information:

In accordance with Art. 21 GDPR you have the right to receive the data you have transmitted to us on the basis of your consent or a contract, provided that the processing of the data was automated. If you wish and if it is technically possible, we will also transmit this data to a third party at your request.

 

5.2 The right to correction

If the data relating to you is incorrect or incomplete, you have the right to demand that your data should be corrected and if relevant completed by the responsible party (Art. 16 GDPR).

 

5.3 The right to the deletion or blocking of data

You have the right to demand that we delete your data in accordance with Art. 17 GDP or block it in accordance with Art. 18 GDPR. If you delete your customer account with our publishing company we will delete your data, unless we have the right to save it for the fulfilment of contracts which have not yet been completed, for the assertion of legal claims, or in compliance with statutory obligations.

 

5.4 The right of objection

To the extent that we process data exclusively for the purpose of safeguarding our interests on the basis of Art. 6 Section 1 f) GDPR you have the right to object to the processing of your data for reasons arising from your individual situation. If you make such an objection, we will no longer process the relevant data, unless we can prove that such processing is essential for the protection of those of our interests which take precedence over your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the processing is for the purpose of asserting legal claims.

 

In addition you can at any time object to the processing of your data for advertising purposes without incurring any other charges than the transmission cost at basic rates. You can at any time and free of charge object to being sent advertising emails, for example by clicking on the relevant unsubscribe link at the foot of an advertising email. Such an objection will also mean that you will no longer receive newsletters in accordance with 4.5.

 

5.5 The right to withdraw consent

If you have given your consent to the processing/use of your data, you can withdraw this consent at any time by sending an email to kundenservice@pons.de. Such withdrawal will not affect the legality of the processing of your data prior to the withdrawal of your consent. We will then delete your data, unless we have the statutory right or obligation to retain and process it.

 

5.6 The right to complain to the regulatory authorities

You have the right to register a complaint with the regulatory authorities, in particular with the State Office for Data Protection and Freedom of Information, Königstrasse 10a, D-70173 Stuttgart.

 

 

6. Links

If our website contains links to other websites which are not operated by us, we are not responsible for the compliance with data protection regulations on the part of such websites.

 

 

7. Security

Personal data which is exchanged between you and our publishing company via our websites is in principle transmitted in encrypted form. In addition we take technical and organisational security precautions to protect the data which you have entrusted to us against manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. Please note, however, that in the case of email communications we are unable to guarantee full data security, which means that it is advisable to send confidential information by post.
