The following document provides information on how we collect personal data when you use our website. Personal data includes all data that can be used to personally identify you, such as your name, address, e-mail addresses, user behavior, and IP addresses.
The responsible party under Art. 4 para. 7 of the EU General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR) and other national data privacy laws of the member states and data security regulations is:
Junith Digital Agency GmbH
In general, we collect and use the personal information of our users only if necessary to provide a functional website and to provide our content and services. We typically only collect and use our users’ personal information after we have received consent to do so from the user. In some exceptional cases, we may not be able to obtain prior consent due to the circumstances of the situation, but may process your data if permitted by law.
If we obtain consent from a data subject to process personal information, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a. of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for processing such personal information.
When processing personal information necessary to fulfill an agreement to which the data subject is a contractual party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing. This also applies to processing procedures necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. If personal information must be processed to fulfill a legal obligation of our company, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make it necessary for us to process personal information, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If data processing is required to safeguard a justifiable interest of our company or a third party, and if the interests, basic rights, and basic freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the above interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.
Personal information of data subjects is deleted or blocked once the purpose of saving no longer applies. In addition, data may only be saved if specified under European or national legislation in EU ordinances, laws, or other regulations to which the responsible entity is subject. Data will be blocked or deleted when the storage term specified by law expires unless it is necessary to continue saving the data to conclude an agreement or fulfill a contract.
In some cases, we use external service providers to process your data on our website. We have carefully selected and commissioned these providers. They are bound to our instructions and are reviewed regularly. Data is never transmitted to countries outside of the EU or EEA (called third countries).
Each time you access our website, our system automatically records data and information from the requesting computer. If you simply use our website for informational purposes, we only collect the personal data your browser transmits to our servers. The following data is collected:
- Browser type and version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of accessing computer
- Time of the server inquiry
- IP address
Data is also saved in our system's log files. This does not include the user’s IP address or other data which could be used to associate the data with a specific user. This data is never saved alongside other personal information belonging to the user.
The system must temporarily store the user’s IP address to allow it to deliver the website to the user’s computer. It must save the user’s IP address for the duration of the session.
We have a legitimate interest in data processing in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR for these purposes.
Data is deleted once it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. If data is collected to provide the website, it will no longer be necessary once the specific session is ended.
Data must be collected and saved in log files to provide and operate the website. Therefore, the user has no right to object.
The purpose of using technically required cookies is to simplify use of the website for the user. We are not able to offer some functions of our website without using cookies. We must be able to recognize the browser even after the user switches to a different page in order to provide these functions.
User data collected with the technically required cookies are not used to create user profiles.
We have a justifiable interest in data processing personal information in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR for these purposes.
Cookies are saved on the user’s computer and transmitted to our page by the computer. Therefore, as a user you have full control over how cookies are used. You can change the settings in your web browser to deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies. Cookies saved in the past can be deleted at any time. This can also be done using an automatic process. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it is possible that you may not be able to use all of the functions of our website in full.
Our website includes a contact form that can be used to get in touch with us electronically. If a user uses this contact form, the data they enter on the input screen is transmitted to us and saved.
Your consent will be obtained to process the data during the transmission process, and you will be referred to this Data Privacy Declaration.
Users may also contact us through the e-mail addressed provided. If they do so, any personal information transmitted in the e-mail will be saved.
Such data is never transmitted to third parties. Data is only used to handle the conversation.
The legal basis for processing personal information is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR, if we have the user’s consent.
The legal basis for processing data transmitted when an e-mail is sent is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If the e-mail contact is sent for the purpose of concluding an agreement, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR also serves as the legal basis for processing.
We only process personal information from the input screen to process the user's contact. If a user contacts us via e-mail, this also serves as part of our legitimate interest in processing the data.
Other personal information processed during the transmission process is used to prevent misuse of the contact form and ensure the safety of our information technology systems.
Data is deleted once it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. This is the case for the personal information from the contact form input screen and personal information transmitted via e-mail once our conversation with the user is over. The conversation is over when circumstances indicate that the matter in question has been fully clarified.
Additional personal information collected during the transmission process is deleted at the latest after seven days.
Users can revoke their consent to process personal information at any time. If the user contacts us via e-mail, they can object to the saving of their personal data at any time. In such cases, we will not be able to continue our conversation with them. There are no formal requirements for objections, which should be submitted to the responsible party.
All personal information saved during the course of contacting the user will then be deleted. Applicable statutory regulations – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. “Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies,” text files saved on your computer that facilitate an analysis of your use of our website. The information provided by these cookies regarding your use of our website is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will, however, be shortened within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states in the Agreement on the European Economic Area before this transfer. Only in exceptional cases will your full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA, where it will be shortened. Google will use this information to evaluate your site usage, create reports regarding website activity, and complete additional services associated with your internet use for the website operator.
The IP addresses transferred by your browser as part of Google Analytics are not associated with other data from Google.
This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp().” Because of this, IP addresses are processed in abbreviated format and cannot be associated with any individual person. If any data collected on you is associated with a specific person, it will be immediately excluded, thereby promptly deleting the personal data.
The legal basis for processing personal information using cookies for analytic purposes is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR, if we have the user’s consent to do so.
We use Google Analytics to analyze and regularly improve use of our website. We can use the statistics generated to improve our services and make them more interesting for you, our users. Google has agreed to the EU-US Privacy Shield for the exceptional cases in which personal data are transmitted to the USA, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. Art. 6 para. 1 clause 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for using Google Analytics.
You can prohibit the storage of cookies by changing the settings in your browser software accordingly; we would, however, like to inform you that in this case you will not be able to use the full extent of all functions on our website. You can also prohibit the collection of the data created by cookies and related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) by Google and Google’s processing of this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

We have concluded an agreement for contract data processing with Google, and we fully implement the strict specifications of German data protection agencies governing the use of Google Analytics.
Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001. User conditions: http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html, Overview of data privacy:http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/learn/privacy.html, And Data Privacy Declaration: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.
Our website uses the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing in conjunction with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. The provider for this service is Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
This function allows us to link the advertising target audiences created with Google Analytics Remarketing to the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. This allows us to adjust interest-based, personalized advertising offers displayed to you based on your earlier usage and surfing behavior on your device (such as your cell phone), even on other devices (such as a tablet or PC).
If you have granted your consent, Google links your web and app browser processes to your Google account for this purpose. This makes it possible to show the same personalized advertisements on every device you use to log into your Google account.
Google Analytics records users’ Google-authenticated IDs to support this function; these are then temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and generate target audiences for cross-device advertisement displays.
You can permanently object to cross-device remarketing / targeting by deactivating personalized advertisements in your Google account. Use the following link to do so: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.
Data is summarized in your Google account only based on your consent, and you can provide this consent to Google or revoke it at any time (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). Data is also collected based on your consent, pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR for data collection procedures that cannot be associated with your Google account (for instance because you do not have a Google account or have objected to such association). The website operator has a justifiable interest in recording this data because it has an interest in completing anonymous analyses of website visitors for advertising purposes.
This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program of Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”).
We use conversion tracking as part of Google AdWords. When you click on an ad placed by Google, this saves a conversion tracking cookie. Cookies are small text files web browsers save on users’ computers. These cookies become invalid after 30 days, and cannot be used to personally identify users. If the user visits certain pages within this website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can see that the user clicked on the ad and was transferred to this page.
Every Google AdWords customer receives a unique cookie. These cookies cannot be tracked through AdWords customer websites. Information collected with conversion cookies is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have elected to use conversion tracking. Customers learn the total number of users who have clicked on their ad and were transmitted to a page equipped with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive information that can be used to personally identify the users. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can object to this use by deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie via the user settings in your web browser. Afterwards, you will no longer be included in conversion tracking statistics.
You can change your browser settings so you are informed whenever cookies are saved, and can only allow cookies in individual instances, block acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general, and activate a setting that automatically deletes cookies when you close your browser. If you choose to deactivate cookies, the functions of this website may be limited.
You can subscribe to a free newsletter on our website. When you register for the newsletter, data from the input screen is transmitted to us.
The only mandatory information required to receive the newsletter is your e-mail address. You may provide further specially marked data on a voluntary basis; this data will be used to address you personally. After you confirm your subscription, we will save your e-mail address for the purpose of sending the newsletter.
Your consent will be obtained to process the data during the transmission process, and you will be referred to this Data Privacy Declaration. We use a double opt-in process in registration for our newsletter. This means that after you subscribe, we will send an e-mail to the e-mail address provided to ask for a confirmation that you would like to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your subscription within 24 hours, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. Furthermore, we also save your IP addresses used and the time of registration and confirmation. The purpose of this process is to provide proof of your registration and to clarify any potential misuse of your personal data.
No data is transmitted to third parties in relation to data processed for sending the newsletter. Data is only used to deliver the newsletter.
The newsletter is delivered based on the user’s registration on our website.
The legal basis for processing data after the user registers for the newsletter is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR, if we have the user’s consent.
We collect the user’s e-mail address to send the newsletter. The newsletter is delivered based on the user’s registration on our website. Other personal data is collected during the registration process in order to prevent any misuse of our services or the e-mail address used.
Data is deleted once it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. The user’s e-mail address is, accordingly, saved for as long as their newsletter subscription is active. Other personal information collected during the registration process is typically deleted after seven days.
Users can cancel their newsletter subscription at any time. An unsubscribe link is included in each newsletter for this purpose. This also allows users to revoke their consent to save personal data collected during the registration process.
We have integrated YouTube videos into our online offering, which are stored at https://www.youtube.com and can be played directly from our website. These are all in “extended data protection mode” via www.youtube-nocookie.com/... This means that no data about you as a user will be transmitted to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Only when you play the videos will the data referred to in paragraph 2 be transmitted. We have no influence on this data transmission.
When you visit our website, YouTube receives information that you accessed a specific website sub-page. The data indicated under IV of this declaration is also transmitted. This data is transmitted independent of whether you are logged into a YouTube user account or whether you have no user account. If you are logged into Google, your data is associated directly with your account. If you do not want this information to be associated with your YouTube profile, you must log out before pressing the button. YouTube saves your data as a usage profile and uses it for the purposes of advertisement, market research, and/or to design its website in line with your needs. Data is analyzed in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to display advertisements in line with their needs and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the formation of such user profiles, but you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.
Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and how data is processed by YouTube is available from the Data Privacy Declaration. It also provides further information on your rights in this respect and settings you can change to protect your privacy:
1. Data processing by social networks
We maintain publicly accessible profiles on social networks. The individual social networks we use are listed below.
Generally, social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, etc. can carry out a comprehensive analysis of your user behavior whenever you visit their websites or any website with integrated social media content (such as Like buttons or advertising banners). Visiting our social media profiles triggers a large number of processing procedures which are relevant for data privacy reasons.
If you are logged into your social media account when you visit our social media profile, the operator of the social media portal can associate your visit to your user account. In some circumstances, however, your personal data may also be collected even if you are not logged in or if you do not have an account on the social media portal. This data collection may be carried out, for instance, using cookies stored on your device or by recording your IP address.
The data collected in this manner can be used by the operators of social media portals to create user profiles including your preferences and interests. This allows them to display advertisements to you based on your interests within and outside of the specific social media site. If you have an account with a social network, this interest-based advertising can be displayed on all devices that you are or were logged into.
2. Legal basis
Our social media profiles are designed to create a global online presence. We have a justifiable interest in doing so according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Analytic processes initiated by social networks may be based on deviating legal bases, which must be indicated by the operators of the social networks (such as consent in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR).
3. Storage duration
Data collected directly by us through our social media presence is deleted by our systems once the purpose for storing said data no longer applies, if you request that we delete the data, or if you revoke your consent to store the data. Stored cookies will remain on your device until you delete them. Applicable statutory regulations – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
4. Controller and asserting rights
When you visit one of our social media profiles (such as on Facebook), we are jointly responsible for the data processing procedures this visit triggers along with the operator of the social media platform. In general, you can exercise your rights (to information, rectification, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability and complaints) both towards us and towards the operator of the social media portal in question. (Such as Facebook).
Please note that, despite our joint responsibility with the social media platform operators, we cannot fully influence the data processing procedures of these social media portals. Our influence is determined primarily by the corporate policies of the provider in question.
As part of our brand communication, we maintain a corporate profile on the social network YouTube.
YouTube LLC (YouTube) processes personal data on this network.
More detailed information is available in the Data Privacy Declaration of YouTube.
YouTube also processes your personal data in the USA and has agreed to observe the EU-US-Privacy-Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

The restrictions of Sections 34 and 35 BDSG (Federal Data Protection Act) apply to the rights to information and deletion.
