Privacy Policy

Overview

The protection of personal data and the responsible handling of information that you entrust to us is an important and special concern of ours. With this data privacy policy, we inform you about how, to what extent and for what purposes we process personal data during

 

  • the use of our website (see 2.)
  • the participation in events of the P+P Training GmbH (see 3.)

 

Finally, you will find general information in sections 1 and 4 to 6, that applies to both types of data processing.

 

1. Responsible party

Party responsible in terms of data protection law: P+P Training GmbH, Färbergraben 18, 80331 Munich, info@pptraining.de [https://www.pptraining.de/en/imprint]

 

2. Website: Processing of your personal data

2.1 Use of the website, access data

In principle, you can use our website for purely informational purposes without disclosing your identity. When you call up the individual pages of the website in this sense, only the access data is transmitted to our provider so that the website can be displayed to you. This is the following data:

 

  • Browser type/ browser version,
  • Operating system used,
  • Language and version of the browser software,
  • Host name of the accessing end device,
  • IP address,
  • Website from which the request comes,
  • Content of the request (specific page),
  • Date and time of the server request,
  • Access status/HTTP status code,
  • Referrer URL (the previously visited page),
  • Amount of data transferred,
  • Time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

 

The temporary processing of this data is necessary to technically enable the processing of a website visit and delivery of the website to your end device. The access data is not used to identify individual users and is not merged with other data sources. Further storage in log files takes place in order to ensure the functionality of the website and the security of the information technology systems. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interests lie in ensuring the functionality of the website and the integrity and security of the website. Storing access data in log files, in particular the IP address, for a longer period of time enables us to detect and ward off misuse. This includes, for example, the defense against requests that overload the service or any bot use. The access data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose of its processing. In the case of collection of data to provide the website, this is the case when you end your visit to the website. The data is generally deleted after seven days at the latest; processing beyond this time period is possible in individual cases. In this case, the IP address is deleted or disguised in such a way that assignment to the visiting client is no longer possible.

 

You can object to the processing. Your right to object exists for reasons arising from your particular situation. You can send us your objection via using the contact details listed in the "Responsible party" section.

 

2.2 Cookies

In addition to the aforementioned access data, so-called cookies are stored in the Internet browser of the end device you are using when you use the website. These are small text files with a sequence of numbers that are stored locally in the cache of the browser used. Cookies do not become part of the end device and cannot execute any programs. They are used to make our website user-friendly. The use of cookies may be necessary for technichal or other purposes (e.g. analysis / evaluation of website usage).

 

2.2.1 Technically necessary cookies

Some elements of our website require that the retrieving browser can be identified even after a page change. For example, language settings are processed in the cookies.

 

The user data collected by technically necessary cookies are not processed to create user profiles. If we use cookies that are not necessary, we will inform you of this separately within the framework of this data privacy policy. We also use so-called "session cookies", which store a session ID that can be used to assign various requests from your browser to the joint session. Session cookies are necessary for the use of the website. In particular, they allow us to recognize the end device used when you return to the website. The session cookies are deleted as soon as you log out or close the browser. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interests in the processing are to provide the aforementioned special functionalities and thereby make the use of the website more attractive and effective.

 

You may object to the processing. Your right to object exists for reasons arising from your particular situation. In addition, you can also prevent data processing based on cookies as follows: by deactivating or restricting or deleting cookies in the settings of your browser software or by opening the browser you are using in "private mode".

 

2.2.2 Cookie management

In order to request consent on our website for the processing of your end device information and personal data by means of cookies or other tracking technologies, we use the consent tool "Usercentrics". With the help of "Usercentrics", you may consent to or refuse the processing of your terminal device information and personal data by means of cookies or other tracking technologies for the purposes listed in "Usercentrics". Such processing purposes may include, for example, the integration of external elements, integration of streaming content, statistical analysis, reach measurement and personalized advertising. You can use "Usercentrics" to give or refuse your consent for all processing purposes or you can give or refuse your consent for individual purposes or individual third-party providers. You may also change the settings you have made afterwards. The purpose of the integration of "Usercentrics" is to leave the decision about setting cookies and similar functionalities to the users of our website and, in the course of further use of our website, to allow the user to change settings already made. In utilizing "Usercentrics", we will process personal data, as well as information on the end devices used. In the process, your data is also sent to Usercentrics (Usercentrics GmbH, Sendlinger Strasse 7, 80331 Munich, Germany). The information on the settings you have made will also be stored in your end device.

 

The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. c) GDPR in conjunction with. Art. 7 (1) GDPR, insofar as the processing serves to fulfill the legally standardized obligations to provide evidence for the granting of consent. Otherwise, Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f) DSGVO is the relevant legal basis. Our legitimate interests for processing lie in the storage of user settings and preferences in relation to the use of cookies and the evaluation of consent rates. Twelve months after the user settings have been made, the user is asked again for consent. The user settings made will then be stored again for this period, unless you yourself delete the information about your user settings in the end device capacities provided for this purpose beforehand.

 

You may object to the processing insofar as the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f) GDPR Your right to object exists for reasons arising from your particular situation. You can send us your objection using the contact details listed in the "Responsible party" section.

To receive the newsletter, you must provide a valid email address. To register for our email newsletter, there is a double opt-in process.

2.4 Services for statistics and analysis and marketing purposes (Google Analytics)

In order to optimally adapt our website to user interests, we use "Google Analytics", a web analysis service from "Google" (Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001). "Google Analytics" uses so-called "cookies" (see the section "Cookies" above), which are stored on your terminal device. With the help of cookies, "Google" processes the information generated about the use of our website by your end device - e.g., that you have called up a particular web page - and processes, among other things, the data mentioned in the section "Use of our website", in particular your IP address, browser information, the website previously visited and the date and time of the server request, for the purpose of statistical analysis of website use. For this purpose, it can also be determined whether different end devices belong to you or your household. This website uses "Google Analytics" with the extension "anonymizeIp()". This means that IP addresses are processed in a shortened form to make it much more difficult to relate them to individuals. According to "Google", your IP address will be shortened beforehand within member states of the European Union. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a "Google" server in the USA and shortened there. On our behalf, "Google" will process this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for us and - where separately indicated - providing us with other services relating to website activity. The IP address transmitted by your browser for these purposes will not be merged with other data from "Google". The legal basis for the processing is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a) GDPR. "Google" also processes the data in part in the USA. There is no adequacy decision from the EU Commission for data transfer to the USA; the legal basis for the transfer to the USA is your consent according to Art. 49 (1) p. 1 lit. a) GDPR. Your data in connected with "Google Analytics" will be deleted after fourteen months at the latest. Further information on data protection at "Google" can be found here

 

You may revoke your consent to processing and third country transfer at any time by pushing back the slider in the "Advanced settings" of the consent tool. In this case, the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of consent until revocation is not affected by the revocation.

 

2.5. Integration of: YouTube videos                       

We use plug-ins of the video platform "YouTube.de" or "YouTube.com" on the website, a service of YouTube LLC (headquarters at 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA; hereinafter "YouTube"), for which "Google" (Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001) is the responsible party within the meaning of data protection law. With the integration we aim to include visual content ("videos"), which we have published on "Youtube.de" or "Youtube.com", also on our website. When using the streaming function, information is also processed that is stored on your end device (e.g., IP address). The videos are embedded in "extended data protection mode", which means that no data about you as a user is transmitted to "YouTube" if you do not play the videos. While playing videos on our website, "YouTube" receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, some of the data mentioned in the section "Use of the website" is transmitted to "Google". This occurs regardless of whether "YouTube" provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to "Google", your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not want the assignment to your "YouTube" profile, you must log out before activating the button. "YouTube" stores your data as usage profiles and processes them independently of an existing user account with "Google" for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or needs-based design of its website. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a) GDPR . Google also processes the data in part in the USA. There is no EU Commission adequacy decision for data transfer to the USA; the legal basis for the transfer to the USA is your consent pursuant to Art. 49 (1) p. 1 lit. a) GDPR . You can find the storage period for your data in the following descriptions of the individual third-party services. For more information on the purpose and scope of processing by "YouTube" and the storage period at "YouTube", please refer to the privacy policy.

2.6 Google Maps

This website uses "Google’s" "Google Maps" service (Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001) for the purpose of displaying maps or map sections and thus enables you to conveniently use the map function on the website. By visiting the website, "Google" receives the information that you have called up the corresponding sub-page of our website. In addition, some of the data mentioned in the section "Use of our website" and "Cookies" are transmitted to "Google". This occurs regardless of whether "Google" provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to "Google", your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not want the assignment to your "Google" profile, you must log out before activating the button.

You can revoke your consent to processing and third-country transfer at any time by moving the slider back in the "Advanced settings" of the consent tool. In this case, the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of consent until revocation is not affected by the revocation.

 

2.7 Google reCAPTCHA

We use the "reCAPTCHA" service from "Google" (Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001) on our website. The purpose of "reCAPTCHA" is to check whether the data input on the website (e.g., in a contact form) is done by a human or an automated program. For this purpose, "reCAPTCHA" analyzes the behavior of the visitor to the website based on various characteristics. This analysis begins automatically as soon as the user accesses the website. For the purpose of the analysis, "reCAPTCHA" evaluates various information (e.g., IP address, time spent on the website by the website visitor or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to "Google". The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a) GDPR . Google also processes the data in part in the USA. There is no EU Commission adequacy decision for data transfer to the USA; the legal basis for the transfer to the USA is your consent pursuant to Art. 49 (1) p. 1 lit. a) GDPR . For further information on the purpose and scope of processing by the plug-in provider and the storage period for "Google Maps", please visit http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

 

You can revoke your consent to the processing and the third-country transfer at any time by moving the slider back in the "Advanced settings" of the consent tool. In doing so, the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of consent until revocation is not affected by the revocation.

 

Please note that you will not be able to use some functions of our website (e.g., newsletter registration) without consenting to the use of reCAPTCHA. If you do not wish to give consent for the use of reCAPTCHA, please contact us for these purposes by another means, e.g., by email.

 

2.8 Google Tag Manager

We use the "Google Tag Manager" from "Google" (Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001) on our website. "Google Tag Manager" is a solution that allows website tags and other third-party elements to be managed through one interface.  

 

First, when the website is accessed with Google Tag Manager, an http request (Request) is sent to Google. This transmits end device information and personal data such as your IP address and information about your browser settings to Google. We use the Google Tag Manager for the purpose of facilitating electronic communication by transferring information to third-party providers via programming interfaces, among other things. In the Google Tag Manager, the respective tracking codes of the third-party providers are implemented without us having to make any elaborate changes to the source code of the website ourselves. Instead, the integration is carried out by a container that puts a so-called "placeholder" code in the source code. In addition, Google Tag Manager allows us to exchange user data parameters in a specific order, in particular by organizing and systemizing the data packets. Your data is also occasionally transmitted to the USA. So-called "standard contractual clauses" have been concluded with Google to ensure compliance with an appropriate level of data protection. Upon request, we will provide you with a copy of the standard contractual clauses. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) GDPR . Our legitimate interests in the processing lie in the facilitation and execution of electronic communication by identification of communication endpoints, control options to exchange data elements in a specified order, and identification of transmission errors. Google Tag Manager does not initiate any data storage. Further information on data protection at "Google" can be found at: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

 

You may object to the processing insofar as the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Your right to object exists for reasons arising from your particular situation. You can prevent processing by deleting the history and website data in the settings of your browser software or by opening the browser you are using in "private mode". 

 

On the other hand, third-party tags such as tracking codes or even counting pixels are installed on our website by Google Tag Manager, for example. The tool triggers other tags, which in turn collect your data; we will inform you of this separately within the scope of this privacy policy. Evaluation of the end device information and personal data of the users collected by the tags does not take place through the Google Tag Manager itself. Rather, your data is forwarded to the respective third-party service for the purposes stated in our consent management tool. We have aligned Google Tag Manager with our consent management tool in such a way that triggering of certain third-party services in Google Tag Manager is dependent upon your selection in our consent management tool, so that only those third-party tags trigger data processing for which you have given consent. The use of Google Tag Manager is covered by the consent for the respective third-party service. The legal basis for the processing is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a) GDPR. Google also partially processes the data in the USA. There is no EU Commission adequacy decision for data transfer to the USA; the legal basis for transfer to the USA is your consent according to Art. 49 (1) p. 1 lit. a) GDPR. The storage period of your data can be found in the following descriptions of the individual third-party services. Further information on data protection at "Google" can be found at: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

 

You may revoke your consent to processing and third-country transfer at any time by pushing back the slider in the "Advanced settings" of the Consent Tool for the respective third-party provider. In doing so, the lawfulness of processing carried out on the basis of consent until revocation is not affected by the revocation.
