XI. Web Analysis by Google Analytics
1. Scope of Processing of Personal Data
On our website and other websites www.fidlock.com, we use the software tool Google Analytics to analyse the browsing behaviour of our users. The software places a cookie on the user’s computer (for more on cookies see above). If individual pages of our website are accessed, the following data is stored:
Two bytes of the IP address of the user’s system used for access
• The website accessed
• The website from which the user came to the accessed website (referrer)
• The sub-pages accessed from the accessed website
• The length of stay on the website
• The frequency of visits to the website
• Information about the browser type and version used
• The user’s operating system
The websites make use of Google Analytics reports on demographic characteristics, in which data from interest-based advertising from Google and visitor data from third parties (e.g. age, gender and interests) are used. This data cannot be traced back to a specific person and can be deactivated at any time via the advert settings. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity for website operators and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if required to do so by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Under no circumstances will Google associate your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; we would like to point out to you, however, that in this case you may not be able to use all of the functions of this website in full. The software is configured in such a way that IP addresses are not saved in full as 2 bytes of the IP address are masked (e.g.: 192.168.xxx.xxx). This makes it impossible to assign the shortened IP address to the accessing computer.
2. Legal Bases for the Processing of Personal Data
The legal basis for the processing of users’ personal data is Art. 6 para. 1) lit. f) GDPR.
3. Purpose of Data Processing
By processing the personal data of users, we are able to analyse the browsing behaviour of our users. By evaluating the data obtained in this way, we are able to compile information about the use of the individual components of our website. This helps us to keep improving our websites as well as their user-friendliness. Our legitimate interest in the processing of data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR also lies in these purposes. Anonymisation of IP addresses ensures that the user’s interests, with respect to the protection of their personal data, have been given sufficient consideration.
4. Duration of Retention
After obscuring/masking the IP address, it is no longer considered to be personal data. Therefore, these masked IP addresses are not automatically erased.
5. Option to Object and Remove
You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie, related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address), and from processing of this data by clicking on the following link (Download and install the available browser plug-in from http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de). An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent future collection of your data when you visit this website. You can find more information on this
at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de or.
at http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html (general information about Google Analytics and data protection). We would like to point out that, on this website, Google Analytics has been extended by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). “

XII. Use of Facebook Remarketing
The so-called “Facebook Pixel” from the Facebook social network, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or if you are based in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”), is used within our online offer.
Processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR arising from the legitimate interest in the above-mentioned purpose.
With the help of the Facebook Pixel, Facebook is able to place the visitors to our online offer within a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called “Facebook Ads”). Accordingly, we use the Facebook Pixel to only display those Facebook Ads that we have assigned to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offers, or who possess certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products, which are based on visited webpages), which we send to Facebook (so-called “Custom Audiences”). The Facebook Pixel is also intended to ensure that our Facebook Ads correspond to the potential interests of users and are not annoying. By using the Facebook Pixel, we can also evaluate the effectiveness of Facebook Ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook Ad (so-called “conversion”). The Facebook Pixel is integrated directly by Facebook when you visit our website and can save a so-called cookie, i.e. a small file, on your device. If you then log in to Facebook or visit Facebook while logged in, the visit to our website will be recorded in your profile. The data collected about you remains anonymous to us, so we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the user. However, the data is retained and processed by Facebook meaning it is possible for an association with the respective user profile to be made. The
processing of the data by Facebook takes place within the framework of Facebook’s data usage guidelines. Accordingly, you will receive additional information on how the remarketing pixel works, as well as more general information about the display of Facebook Ads, in the data usage guidelines of
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php.
You can revoke consent for collection by the Facebook pixel and the use of your data to display Facebook ads here. To set which types of advertisements are displayed to you within Facebook, you can visit the page set up by Facebook and
follow: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads. The settings are platform-independent, i.e. they are applied to all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devicesthe instructions for configuring usage-based advertising.
You can object to the use of cookies that measure audience reach and
are intended for advertising purposes via the deactivation page
Network Advertising Initiative (http://optout.networkadvertising.org/), as well as the US website (http://www.aboutads.info/choices) or the European website (http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your- ad-choices/)..

XIII. Use of Social Media
Our website uses plugins from various social networks (“Facebook”, “Twitter”, “Instagram”, “YouTube”, “Xing”). The buttons are marked with the logo of the respective social network. When you visit our websites, the corresponding buttons are deactivated or only linked to, so that no data is sent to the social networks unless you click on the buttons. After activation, a direct connection to the respective social networks is established. If you are logged into a social network, this provider can associate your visit with your account. If you do not want this, we recommend that you log out of your account beforehand. If you are not a member of a social network, there is still the possibility that the provider will find out and save your IP address, for example. If you do not want this, you should not click the button. FIDLOCK has no influence on the purpose and scope of data collection or further processing and use of data by the social networks. Regulations on data protection and your associated rights should be available in the respective data protection declarations of the social networks.

XIV. DoubleClick
DoubleClick is a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). DoubleClick uses cookies to display advertisements of relevance to you. A pseudonymous identification number (ID) is assigned to your browser to check which
adverts were displayed in your browser and which adverts were viewed. The use of DoubleClick cookies enables Google and its partner websites to place adverts based on previous visits to our websites or those of third parties on the internet. You can permanently disable this cookie at https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin?hl=de. We have included YouTube videos in our online offering
that are stored on www.youtube.com and can be played directly from our website. We use the so-called “extended data protection mode” of the provider YouTube to embed videos. According to YouTube, no information about visitors to our website is then stored unless they watch the video. Despite the use of the extended
data protection mode, it cannot be ruled out that Google will set a DoubleClick cookie for advertising purposes. You can permanently disable this cookie at https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin?hl=de.

XV. Installation of Third-Party Programs
If additional programs such as Java Script, Flash® (Adobe), etc. are required for correct playback of the website or the media service, you must first install the respective programs yourself in your capacity as a visitor to the website or the media service. Required software is not installed automatically without consent. However, FIDLOCK GmbH reserves the right to offer the visitor such additional programs without installing them on the visitor’s computer without the visitor’s consent. FIDLOCK GmbH is not obliged to display the website correctly.

If the data controller has publicly disclosed your personal data and is then obliged to erase it in accordance with Art. 17 para. 1 GDPR, he shall take appropriate measures, also of a technical nature, to notify the data processing controller, with due consideration of the available technology and the
implementation costs, that you, the data subject, have requested them to erase all links to said personal data or copies or duplications thereof.

The right to erasure does not exist if processing is necessary
1. To exercise the right to freedom of expression and information;

5. Right to Information
If you have asserted the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing against the data controller, he is obliged to inform all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of this rectification or erasure of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves to be impossible or involves disproportionate effort. You have the right to be informed about these recipients by the data controller.
6. Right to Data Portability
You have the right to receive your personal data about you that you have provided to the data controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to transmit this data to another data controller, without hindrance from the data controller who initially received the personal data, provided that
1. The processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para.
1 lit. b) GDPR and
2. the processing is performed using automated procedures.
In exercising this right, you also have the right to have your personal data transmitted directly from one data controller to another data controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. This must not impinge the freedoms and rights of other people. The right to data portability does not apply to processing of personal data that is required to perform a task that is in the public interest or used to exercise official authority that has been assigned to the data controller.
7. Right to Object
You have the right, for reasons arising from your particular circumstances, to object at any time to the processing of your personal data, which is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e) or f) GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The data controller no longer processes your personal data unless he can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for said processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. If your personal data are processed for the purpose of direct advertising, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data
for the purposes of said advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with the aforementioned direct advertising. If you object to data processing for direct marketing purposes, your personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes. You have the option, in connection with the use of the services of the
information society – notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC – to exercise your
right to object by automated means embodying technical specifications.
8. Right to Revoke the Declaration of Consent Under Data Protection Law
You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the legality of processing performed on the basis of consent up to the point of revocation.
9. Automated Individual Decision-Making Including Profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated
processing – including profiling – which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly affects you significantly. This does not apply if the decision
1. Is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the data controller.
2. Is permitted on the basis of legal provisions of the European Union or the Member States to which the data controller is subject and these legal provisions contain appropriate measures to protect your rights and freedoms, as well as your legitimate interests or
3. Takes place with your express consent.
However, these decisions must not be based on special categories
of personal data in accordance with Art. 9 para. 1 GDPR, unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a) or g) GDPR applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests. With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the data controller shall take appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms, and your legitimate interests, including at the very least your right to seek human intervention on the part of the data controller, to express own opinions and to challenge the decision.
10. Right to Complain to a Supervisory Authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your place of residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you believe that the processing of your personal data violates the GDPR. The supervisory authority to which the complaint was lodged will inform the complainant about the status and the results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Art. 78 GDPR.
