Privacy Statement

Thank you for your interest in our websites. We take the protection of your personal data very seriously and would like to inform you about how we process this data. This privacy statement applies to all data we collect through our websites and the applications enabling their use. We strictly adhere to all data protection regulations.

We reserve the right to amend this privacy statement if the operation of our website requires it. Therefore, please regularly check our website for the current version of our privacy statement.

Personal Data

According to Section 3(1) of the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG)), personal data is the individual disclosure of personal or factual circumstances of a specified or specifiable natural person. This includes one’s name, and home or email address.

Collection, Processing and Use of Your Data

In general, you may use our websites and applications without providing personal data. Only technical information, such as the name of your browser, the site from which you are visiting us, your operating system, or the date and number of your visits is saved. This anonymous data does not allow us to identify you personally and is only collected by us to improve our service to you.

We only collect, process and use personal data with your express permission or where this is permitted by law. Collected data will not be forwarded to third parties without your express permission, unless we are legally required to do so.

If you would like to use the contents of our websites through one of the applications we offer, the intermediary networking platform will ask you to enter your name and your email and home address. By providing this information, you agree to have this data saved for the duration of your use of the application. DEARSOUVENIR will not use this data for commercial purposes, but will only save it due to a commitment to the intermediary networking platform. DEARSOUVENIR will delete this data immediately once the application is closed. For more information about the intermediary networking platform’s use of your data, please also see the intermediary’s privacy statement.

You may revoke your permission at any time. We collect, process and use personal data only insofar as it is necessary for the operation of our websites and applications, e.g., to process your contact requests. We delete such data afterwards, unless we are required by law to save it. If you contact us (e.g. via contact form or email), your data will be saved to process your request.

Cookies

To provide you with the optimal service and ensure the use of certain functions, some of our sites use so-called cookies. These are small text files which are saved on your computer. Upon completion of your browsing session, most of the cookies we use (session cookies) will be deleted from your hard disk. By contrast, so-called persistent cookies will remain on your computer and allow us to identify you at your next visit.

Our partners and affiliates are not permitted to collect, process, or use personal data on cookies from our websites. You can prevent cookies from being saved onto your computer through your browser settings. However, this may limit the functionality of our service.

Right to Information and Other Rights

You may request information free of charge at any time about the data DEARSOUVENIR saves about you. You may even have a legal claim to correct, block, or delete your data.

Data Security

Our employees are bound by secrecy and must adhere to all data protection regulations.

Use of Facebook Plugins (Like Button)

Our websites integrate plugins of the social network Facebook, 1601 Willow Road. Menlo Park, California 94025, USA. You may recognize Facebook plugins by their Facebook logo or their “Like Button” on our website. You can find more information about the Facebook plugins here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

When you visit our websites, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Facebook server through the plugin. This way, Facebook will be notified of you visiting our website with your IP address. If you click on the Facebook “Like Button” while logged into your Facebook account, you can link our website content to your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to determine which of their accounts visited our website. Please note that, as website providers, we receive no information about the content of the transferred data or its use by Facebook. More information about Facebook’s data policy can be found at https://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

If you do not want Facebook to record your visits to our websites, please log out of your Facebook account before visiting one of our websites.

Use of Google Analytics

DEARSOUVENIR uses Google Analytics, a Web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies,” text files which are saved onto your computer and allow an analysis of your use of our websites. The information generated by these cookies about your use of our websites is usually transferred to a Google server in the United States where it is saved. Should you anonymize your IP address on a website, your IP address will be shortened by Google to a location within the member states of the European Union or the states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

Only in rare cases will the complete IP address be transferred to a Google server in the United States and be shortened there. On behalf of the operator of our website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our website, compile reports about website activities, and perform further services related to the website and Internet usage for the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser through Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data.

You can prevent cookies from being saved onto your computer through your browser settings. However, please note that you may not be able to use all functions on our website. You may also prevent Google’s collection and processing of the data generated by the cookie about your use of a website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the following browser plugin: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Twitter functions are integrated into our websites. These functions are provided by Twitter Inc., Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

By clicking on the Pinterest “Pin It” button while logged in to your Pinterest account, you can link and share the pictures and contents of our website onto your Pinterest profile. This allows Pinterest to determine which of their accounts visited our website.
