4. COOKIES

The internet pages partly use so-called cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and stored by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the application of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, activate the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally exclude and enable the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

5. COLLECTION OF GENERAL DATA AND INFORMATION

The BARK CLOTH website collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by an affected person or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the internet page from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (6) an Internet Protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information, BARK CLOTH makes no conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required (1) to correctly deliver the contents of our website, (2) to optimize the content of our website and to advertise it, (3) to ensure the continued functioning of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and ( 4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyberattack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore statistically and further evaluated by BARK CLOTH with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure the best possible level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by an affected person.

6. SUBSCRIPTION TO A NEWSLETTER

On the website of BARK CLOTH the users are occasionally given the opportunity to subscribe to a newsletter of our company (but not in the course of the year 2018). Which personal data is transmitted to the data controller when the newsletter is ordered results from the input mask used for this purpose.

BARK CLOTH informs its customers and business partners at irregular intervals by means of a newsletter about offers of the company. The newsletter of our company can only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid email address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address entered by an affected person for the first time for newsletter mailing using the double-opt-in procedure. This confirmation email is used to check whether the owner of the e-mail address as the affected person, authorized receipt of the newsletter.

When subscribing to the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration, as assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP). The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of an affected person's e-mail address at a later date and therefore serves as legal safeguards for the controller.

The personal data collected in the context of registering for the newsletter will be used exclusively to send our newsletter. Subscribers to the newsletter may also be notified by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or registration, as might be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter or technical changes. There will be no transfer of the personal data collected as part of the newsletter service to third parties. Subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by the person concerned at any time. The consent to store personal data, which the data subject has given us for the newsletter dispatch can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking the consent, there is a corresponding link in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time, directly on the controller's website, or to inform the controller in a different way.

7. NEWSLETTER TRACKING

The newsletters of BARK CLOTH contain so-called counting pixels. A counting pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in such emails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded pixel, BARK CLOTH can detect if and when an e-mail was opened by an affected person and which links in the e-mail were called by the person concerned.

Such personal data collected via the counting pixels contained in the newsletters will be stored and evaluated by the controller in order to optimize the delivery of newsletters and to better adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the data subject. This personal data will not be disclosed to third parties. Affected persons are at any time entitled to revoke the separate declaration of consent made via the double-opt-in procedure. After revocation, this personal data will be deleted by the controller. A cancellation of the receipt of the newsletter BARK CLOTH is automatically interpreted as a revocation.

8. CONTACT VIA THE WEBSITE

BARK CLOTH's website contains information which is required by law to enable a quick electronic contact to our company as well us direct communicate with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If an affected person contacts the controller by e-mail or through a contact form, the personal data provided by the data subject will be automatically stored for the purposes of processing and / or contacting the data subject. There is no disclosure of this personal data to third parties.

9. ROUTINE DELETION AND BLOCKING OF PERSONAL DATA

The controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of the storage or if this is provided for by the European directives or regulations or by any other legislator in laws or regulations which the controller is subject to.

The BARK CLOTH employee will arrange for the necessary in individual cases.

If one of the above conditions is met and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by BARK CLOTH, they may, at any time, contact an employee of the controller. The employee of BARK CLOTH will cause the restriction of processing.

                   f) Right to data portability

Any person affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right conferred by the European Directives and Regulations to obtain the personal data concerning him / her provided to a controller by the data subject in a structured, common and machine-readable format. He / she also has the right to transfer this data to another person responsible without hindrance by the controller to whom the personal data was provided, provided that the processing is based on the consent pursuant to Article 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR or Article 9 (1) (b) 2 (a) of the GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR and processing by means of automated processes, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task of public interest or in the exercise of public authority, which has been assigned to the responsible person.

Furthermore, in exercising their right to data portability under Article 20 (1) of the GDPR, the data subject has the right to obtain that the personal data is transmitted directly from one controller to another, insofar as this is technically feasible and if this does not affect the rights and freedoms of others.

To assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact a BARK CLOTH employee.

                   g) Right to objection

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right conferred by the European directive and regulatory authority at any time, for reasons arising from its particular situation, against the processing of personal data relating to it pursuant to Article 6 (1) (e) or f DS-GVO takes an objection. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

BARK CLOTH will no longer process personal data in the event of an objection, unless we can prove compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing is for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.

If BARK CLOTH processes personal data in order to operate direct mail, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to the profiling, as far as it is associated with such direct mail.

The data subject is also free, in the context of the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58 / EC, to exercise his right of objection by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.

                   h) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right, as granted by the European directive and the regulatory authority, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has a legal effect on it or, in a similar manner, significantly affects it; unless the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is permitted by Union or Member State legislation to which the controller is subject, and that legislation provides for appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject; or (3) with the express consent of the data subject.

If the decision (1) is required for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller or (2) it takes place with the express consent of the data subject, BARK CLOTH shall take reasonable measures to protect the rights and freedoms and the legitimate interests  of the person concerned, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the controller, to express his / her own position and to challenge the decision.

If the data subject wishes to claim automated decision-making rights, they can contact an employee of the controller at any time.

                   i) Right to revoke a data protection consent

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European directive and regulatory authority, to revoke consent to the processing of personal data at any time.

If the data subject wishes to assert their right to withdraw consent, they may, at any time, contact an employee of the controller.

11.DATA PROTECTION DURING APPLICATIONS AND APPLICATION PROCEDURE

The controller collects and processes the personal data of candidates for the purpose of processing the application process. The processing can also be done electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits corresponding application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example by e-mail or via a web form available on the website. If the controller concludes a contract of employment with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purposes of the employment relationship in accordance with the law. If no employment contract is concluded with the candidate by the controller, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after the announcement of the rejection decision, unless deletion precludes other legitimate interests of the controller. Other legitimate interest in this sense is for example a burden of proof in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

12. LEGAL BASIS OF PROCESSING

Art. 6 I lit. A DS-GMO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract of which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, in processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, processing shall be based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GMO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GMO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our premises were injured and his or her name, age, health insurance or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GMO. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GMO. On this legal basis, processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are required if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned prevail. Such processing operations are particularly allowed to us because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In that regard, it is considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47, second sentence, DS-BER).

13. LEGITIMATE INTERESTS IN PROCESSING THAT ARE BEING PURSUED BY THE CONTROLLER OR A THIRD PARTY

Is the processing of personal data based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GMO, so is our legitimate interest conducting our business for the benefit of all of our employees and our shareholders.

14. DURATION FOR WHICH PERSONAL DATA IS STORED

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, if is is no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract.

15. LEGAL OR CONTRACTUAL PROVISIONS FOR THE PROVISION OF PERSONAL DATA; NECESSITY FOR THE CONCLUSION OF THE CONTRACT; OBLIGATION OF THE DATA SUBJECT TO PROVIDE PERSONAL DATA; POSSIBLE CONSEQUENCES OF NON-PROVISION

We clarify that the provision of personal information is in part required by law (such as tax regulations) or may result from contractual arrangements (such as details of the contractor). Occasionally it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded, that an affected person provides us with personal data, which must we must subsequently process. For example, the data subject is required to provide us with personal information when our company enters into a contract with him / her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be closed. Prior to any personal data being provided by the person concerned, the person concerned must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the individual on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.

16. EXISTENCE OF AUTOMATED DECISION-MAKING

As a responsible company that is aware of its privacy concerns, we do not rely on automated decision making or profiling.

17. CHANGE OF OUR PRIVACY POLICY

We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy from time to time to ensure that it complies with current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the Privacy Policy, for example, when introducing new services. Your new visit will be subject to the new privacy policy.
