3. Collection of data and general information

The website of the Third Pole a.s.b.l. collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or an automated system calls up the website. These general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected can be (1) the types of Internet browsers and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an Internet Protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of an attack on our computer systems.

 

By using this general data and information, Le Troisième Pôle a.s.b.l. does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is used to (1) correctly deliver the content of our website, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertising, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our computer systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. Of which, The Third Pole a.s.b.l. analyzes anonymously collected data and information in a statistical way, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data from the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by the data subject.

 

4. Registration on our website

The data subject has the opportunity to register on the website of the controller by entering personal data. The personal data to be transmitted to the controller is determined by the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller for its own purposes. The controller may request the transfer to one or more processors (e.g. a parcel service) which also use personal data for an internal purpose attributable to the controller.

 

When registering on the website of the controller, the IP address - assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) and used by the data subject - the date and time of registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place in the context that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services and, if necessary, to enable the investigation of offences committed. To this extent, the storage of these data is necessary to secure the data controller. This data is not passed on to third parties, unless there is a legal obligation to pass on this data or if the passing on serves the purpose of criminal proceedings. 

 

The registration of the person concerned by the voluntary indication of personal data is intended to enable the controller to offer the person concerned content or services that can only be offered to registered users due to the nature of the subject in question. Registered persons may, at any time, without constraint, change the personal data specified during registration or delete them completely from the data stock of the data controller.

 

The data controller must, at any time, provide each data subject with information on the personal data stored on the data subject upon request. In addition, the data controller must correct or erase personal data at the request or indication of the data subject, provided that there is no legal obligation to retain them. All employees of the controller are available to the data subject as contact persons.

The newsletter of the enterprise can be received by the data subject only if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address, and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter. A confirmation e-mail will be sent for the first time to the e-mail address registered by the data subject, for legal reasons, during the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail serves to prove whether the owner of the e-mail address is authorised as a data subject to receive the newsletter.

 

During the registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) and used by the data subject during registration, as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the data subject's e-mail address at a later date, thus serving the purpose of legal protection of the controller.

 

The personal data collected within the framework of the newsletter registration will only be used to send our newsletter. In addition, newsletter subscribers may be informed via e-mail as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or for a registration in question, for example in the case of changes to the newsletter offer or in the case of a change in technical circumstances. Personal data will not be passed on by the newsletter service to third parties. The registration for our newsletter can be terminated by the data subject at any time. The consent of the data subject to the storage of personal data for the purpose of sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking consent, a corresponding link is included in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe to the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the controller or to communicate it to the controller in a different way.

Based on the integrated tracking pixel, The Third Pole a.s.b.l. can see if and when an e-mail was opened by the data subject and which links in the e-mail were opened by the data subject.

 

These personal data collected by the tracking pixels in the newsletter are stored and analysed by the controller to optimise the sending of the newsletters, as well as to better adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the data subject. This personal data is not passed on to third parties. Data subjects have the right to revoke their separate declaration of consent at any time by means of the double opt-in procedure. After the revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the controller. The Third Pole a.s.b.l. automatically regards the withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.

A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or allow the Internet community to provide personal or professional information. Facebook allows users of social networks to include the creation of private profiles, upload photos and create networks via friend requests.

 

The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc. at 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, United States. For persons living outside the United States, the data controller is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

 

When calling up one of the individual pages of this website which is operated by the controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data subject's computer system is automatically prompted by the Facebook component to download the Facebook component display. An overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. During this technical procedure, Facebook recognises the specific sub-sites of our website that the data subject has visited.

 

If the person concerned is also logged on to Facebook, Facebook detects which specific sub-site of our website the person concerned has visited by calling up our website - and for the duration of their visit to our website. This information is collected via the Facebook component and linked to the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated into our website, e.g. the "Like" button, or if the data subject submits a comment, Facebook links this information to the data subject's personal Facebook account and stores the personal data.

 

Facebook always receives information about the data subject's visit to our website via the Facebook component, whenever the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the same time as he or she is visiting our website. This occurs irrespective of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the data subject does not want such a transfer of information to Facebook, he or she can prevent this by logging out of the Facebook account before the call to our website.

12. Data protection provisions for the application and use of Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)

On this website, the controller has integrated components of Google Analytics (with anonymization function). Google Analytics is a web analysis service which collects and analyses data about the behaviour of visitors to the website. A web analysis service captures, among other things, relevant data on which website a person arrived via another website (the so-called referrer), which sub-site of the website was visited or how often and for how long this sub-site was viewed. Web analysis is mainly used for website optimisation in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

 

The operating company of the component is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

 

For the web analysis via Google Analytics the controller uses the application "_gat. _anonymizeIp". With this application, the IP address of the data subject's Internet connection is abbreviated by Google and anonymised when accessing our websites from a Member State of the European Union or another state that is party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

 

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and information, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide online reports, which show the activities of our websites, and to provide other services related to the use of our website for us.

 

Google Analytics places a cookie on the data subject's computer system. The definition of cookies is explained above. In this way, Google can analyse the use of our website. By calling up one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the computer system of the data subject will automatically submit data via the Google Analytics component for online advertising and commission payments to Google. Within the framework of this technical procedure, the Google company is informed about personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which enables Google, among other things, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks and thus to create commission payments.

 

The cookie is used to store personal data such as the time of access, the location from which the access was made and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject. On each visit to our website, such personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the USA. This personal data is stored by Google in the USA. Google may disclose the personal data collected through this technical procedure to third parties.

 

As stated above, the data subject can prevent the placement of cookies via our website at any time by making a corresponding setting on the Internet browser used and thereby permanently disabling the cookie setting. Such a setting in the Internet browser used prevents Google Analytics from placing a cookie on the data subject's computer system. Cookies that have already been used by Google Analytics can also be deleted at any time using a web browser or other software.

 

The data subject also has the opportunity to object to the collection of the data generated about his or her use of this website by Google Analytics and the processing of such data by Google, and the chance to prevent such processing.  For this purpose, the person must download a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and install it. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that all data and information about the visits to the website will not be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is regarded as an objection to Google. If the data subject's computer system is subsequently deleted, formatted or newly installed, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-ons to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on has been uninstalled by the data subject or by another competent person or has been deactivated, it is possible to carry out the reinstallation or reactivation of the browser add-ons.

During this technical procedure, Instagram of the specific individual sub-sites of this website that the data subject has visited.

 

If the data subject is at the same time logged in on Instagram, Instagram detects by calling up our website by the data subject - and for the duration of their visit to our website - which specific subsite of our website was visited by the data subject. This information is collected via the Instagram component, and associated with the respective Google+ account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the integrated Instagram buttons on our website, Instagram associates this information with the data subject's personal Instagram user account and records the personal data.

 

Instagram receives the information via the Instagram component that the data subject has visited our website, if the data subject is at the same time logged in on Instagram. This occurs regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Instagram button or not. If such a transmission of information to Instagram is not desired by the data subject, the data subject can prevent it by logging out of his/her Instagram account before calling up our website.

If the data subject is at the same time logged on to YouTube, YouTube detects by calling up our website by the data subject - and for the duration of their visit to our website - which specific sub-site of our website was visited by the data subject. This information is collected via the YouTube component and linked to the respective YouTube account of the data subject

 

YouTube and Google receive information via the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website, if the data subject is at the same time logged in to YouTube. This occurs irrespective of whether the data subject clicks on a YouTube video or not. If the data subject does not want the information to be transmitted to Youtube and Google, he or she can prevent such transmission by logging out of his or her Youtube account before calling up our website.

 

YouTube's applicable data protection regulations, which can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/, provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.

 

15. Legal basis for processing

Article 6(1)(a) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for the specific purpose of processing. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, for example where processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or for any other service, the processing is based on Article (1) (b) GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of requests for our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation to process personal data, e.g. for compliance with tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR.In some cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if the visitor was injured in our company and his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or third party. This processing is then based on Article 6(1)(d) GDPR.Finally, processing operations can be based on Article 6(1)(f). This legal basis is used for processing operations that are not covered by any of the above-mentioned articles, if the processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except in the case where the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject override such interests which require the protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permitted as they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject was a customer of the controller (Recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).

 

16. Legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party.Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) (f) GDPR, our legitimate interest is to perform our activities for the benefit of all our employees and shareholders.

 

17. Period for which personal data is retained

The criteria used to determine the retention period is the respective legal retention period. After the expiry of this period, the data is systematically deleted, as long as it is no longer required for the execution of the contract or the opening of a contract.
