Data privacy statement for the homepage
samedi GmbH (referred to in short as “samedi”) operates websites on the domains samedi.de and samedi.cc, in-cluding all additional associated top level, country and sub-domains (hereinafter referred to as “the websites”). samedi attaches the highest degree of importance to protecting the privacy of visitors browsing the websites; and, complies with the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Data Protection Act (TMG) in collecting, processing and using data. samedi ensures compliance with these data protection laws and is also subject to monitoring and supervision by the Berlin Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Infor-mation.
1 Contacting us
For the purposes of contact requests or similar, the visitor can voluntarily enter personal data on the samedi® web-site. This personal data is stored in an internal samedi customer database which is only accessible to samedi em-ployees. It is not passed on to third parties unless the visitor gives its express consent to this, or samedi is obliged to disclose it, for example due to a legal or official order.
2 Encryption of data transfer and communication
The transfer of data from the visitor’s computer to samedi’s server, and vice versa, data downloaded from samedi’s server to the visitor’s computer, is encrypted. For this, samedi uses the current encryption standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer, Version 3.0). This proven cryptographic procedure is used worldwide as standard for highly sensitive transactions on the internet, for example in online banking and for sensitive internet applications in the health sector. It combines a 2048 bit long public key with a symmetrical key 256 bits in length. The padlock symbol in the browser window shows whether or not the information is protected when transmitted, and which key length is supported by the browser. The authenticity of samedi’s encryption code is confirmed by the network solutions certificate. By dou-ble clicking on the key symbol at the bottom of the screen the user can find out more about the certificate.
3 Cookies and improvements to the contents through analysis of vis-its to the homepage
In order to make using our website as pleasant as possible for visitors, samedi uses so-called session cookies to recognise repeated use of the website by the same visitor. Session cookies are small units of information which are stored on the user’s computer. This can be the date and time a page is visited, the internet browser used, the number of visits, the average time spent or the number of sites viewed. This is done anonymously without the site user being personally identified. With the help of these cookies samedi can analyse which functions are used by visitors of the samedi® website and how its contents can be enhanced to precisely match visitors’ requirements.
Personal data is not stored in cookies, instead only a code is used which has no meaning outside the samedi® homepage.
4 Use of Google Analytics
The websites use Google Analytics, a web analysis service by Google Inc (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", which are text files saved on your computer, to make it possible to analyse how visitors use the site. The information generated by the cookies about customers’ use of this website, for example time, place and fre-quency of visits to the website, including IP addresses, are sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In cases of activated IP anonymisation on these websites, the visitor’s IP address will, however, first be truncated by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other countries which are contracting parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The complete IP address shall be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there only in exceptional cases. Google will use this information on behalf of the website opera-tor to analyse customers’ use of the website in order to compile reports about website activities and in order to pro-vide additional services associated with website and internet use for the website operator. The IP address transmit-ted by the customer’s browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be combined with other data by Google. The visitors can prevent the storage of cookies by appropriately adjusting their browser software. samedi, however, informs visitors that in this case, if applicable, not all of the website’s functions can be used in full. Moreover, the visitor can prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookies and related to their use of the websites (including their IP address), as well as Google’s processing of this data, by downloading the browser plug-in availa-ble under the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de) and installing it.
Further information on conditions of use and data protection can be found at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or at http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html . Please note that Google Analytics has been extended on the websites with the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” in order to guarantee the anonymised collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).
By using this website, the visitor confirms its consent to the processing of the data obtained about it by Google in the manner described above and for the aforementioned purpose.
5 Right to information and right of revocation
The visitor may receive information about its data stored by samedi free of charge and at any time, without giving any reasons. It may have the data collected by samedi blocked, corrected or deleted at any time. It may also revoke the permission given to samedi to collect and use data at any time without providing any reasons for this.
