Privacy Policy

CUBE GmbH (“CUBE”/”We”) takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz) coming into force on May 25, 2018.

 

I. General information on data processing

The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data; apart from the collection of data for the provision of the website (the storage of the data in logfiles is mandatory for the operation of the website). Insofar as personal data (e. g. name, address or e-mail addresses or other data) are collected on our website, this is always done on a voluntary basis as far as possible. These data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent. This privacy policy shall inform you on how we collect, process and use your personal data in connection with our services as well as the legal basis for the processing of personal data and the purpose of the data processing.

 

1. Scope of the processing of personal data

CUBE collects, processes and uses the personal data of its users only insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a functional website as well as its content and services. The collection and use of our users’ personal data is regularly only carried out with the user’s prior consent. An exception shall apply in cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and where the processing of data is permitted by legal regulations.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as CUBE obtains the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data. Article 6 para. lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party. This shall also apply to processing operations necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. Insofar as a processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which CUB is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as a legal basis. In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person necessitate the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis. If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the party concerned do not outweigh the first mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

3. Data erasure and storage duration

The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.
For this purpose, the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session.
Our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR also lies in these purposes.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.

In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or changed, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

5. Possibility of opposition and elimination

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in logfiles is mandatory for the operation of the website.
Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

6. Measures of security

We will of course make every effort to store your personal data in such a way that they are not accessible to third parties by using all technical and organisational means. However, full data security cannot be guaranteed when communicating by email, so we recommend that you send confidential information by post.

Further, this site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests you send to us as the site operator. An encrypted connection can be recognized by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is enabled, the information you provide to us cannot be read by third parties.

VII. Rights of the person concerned

We make sure that every user of our website has the rights regarding his personal data as laid down in Artt. 12 to 22 GDPR. This particularly includes the right to demand information at any time about which data is stored about him or her and for what purpose this storage takes place.

VIII. Integration of third-party services and content

Insofar as we integrate third party content on our website the possibility to consume such content via our website presupposes that your IP address is transmitted to the providers of such content (“third party providers”). Otherwise, this content could not be sent to your browser. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. We make every effort to use only those contents whose respective providers use the IP address solely for sending the integrated contents. If a third party provider stores your IP address for other purposes, e. g. for statistical purposes, we have no influence on it and cannot provide you with any information in this regard due to a lack of knowledge.

If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can associate your visit with your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking on the Like button or by making a comment, the corresponding information is sent directly from your device to Facebook and stored there. If you are not a Facebook member, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out your IP address and save it.
According to Facebook, only one anonymous IP address is stored in Germany. The scope and purpose of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as the rights and options for privacy protection in this respect, can be found in Facebook’s privacy policy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy.
