4. Google reCAPTCHA
We use Google reCAPTCHA to check and avoid interactions on our website through automated access, for example through so-called bots. It is a service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter referred to as “Google”.
Through the certification according to the EU-US Privacy Shield (“EU-US Privacy Shield”) https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active, Google guarantees that the EU’s data protection requirements also apply to the processing of data in the United States.
This service enables Google to determine from which website a request is being sent and from which IP address you are using the so-called reCAPTCHA input box. In addition to your IP address, Google may also collect other information that is necessary for the offer and guarantee of this service.
The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the security of our website and in the defence against unwanted, automated access in the form of spam or similar.
Google offers further information on the general handling of your user data at https://policies.google.com/privacy.

Our website uses the “Akismet” service offered by Automattic Inc., 60 29th Street # 343, San Francisco, CA 94110, USA. Use is based on our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. With the help of this service, comments from real people are distinguished from spam comments. For this purpose, all comments are sent to a server in the USA, where they are analyzed and saved for four days for comparison purposes. If a comment has been classified as spam, the data will be saved beyond this time. These details include the entered name, email address, IP address, comment content, referrer, details of the browser used and the computer system and the time of the entry.
Further information on the collection and use of data by Akismet can be found in Automattic’s data protection information: https://automattic.com/privacy/.
Users are welcome to use pseudonyms or to refrain from entering their names or email addresses. You can completely prevent the transfer of data by not using our comment system. That would be a shame, but unfortunately, we do not see any other alternatives that work just as effectively.
With the following information, we will inform you about the content of our newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedure as well as your right to object. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to the receipt and the procedures described.
Content of the newsletter: We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with advertising information (hereinafter “newsletter”) only with the consent of the recipient or a legal permission. Insofar as the content of a newsletter is specifically described, it is decisive for the consent of the user. Our newsletters also contain information about our services and us.
Double opt-in and logging: The registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after registration you will receive an email asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with someone else’s email address. The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to demonstrate the registration process in accordance with the legal requirements. This includes storing the time of registration and confirmation, as well as the IP address. Changes to your data stored by the shipping service provider are also logged.
Registration data: To register for the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide your email address. Optionally, we ask you to provide a name in order to address it personally in the newsletter.
Germany: The newsletter is sent and the success measurement associated with it is based on the consent of the recipient in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a, Art. 7 GDPR in conjunction with § 7 Para. 2 No. 3 UWG or on the basis of the legal permission acc. Section 7 (3) UWG.
The logging of the registration process is based on our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our interest is focused on the use of a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves both our business interests and the expectations of the users and also allows us to prove consent.
Cancellation/revocation – You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, ie revoke your consent. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter. Based on our legitimate interests, we can save the e-mail addresses we have removed for up to three years before we delete them in order to be able to prove a previously given consent. The processing of this data is limited to the purpose of a possible defence against claims. An individual request for cancellation is possible at any time, provided that the previous consent is confirmed.
6.1 Newsletter – shipping service provider
The newsletter is sent using the shipping service provider “MailChimp”, a newsletter delivery platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE # 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. You can view the data protection regulations of the shipping service provider here: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/. The Rocket Science Group LLC d / b / a MailChimp is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with the European data protection level (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000TO6hAAG&status=Active). The shipping service provider is based on our legitimate interests. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPRand an order processing contract in accordance with 28 para. 3 sentence 1 GDPR.
The shipping service provider can use the recipient’s data in pseudonymous form, ie without assignment to a user, to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimize the shipping and presentation of the newsletter or for statistical purposes. However, the shipping service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them themselves or to pass the data on to third parties.
6.2 Newsletter – measurement of success
The newsletter contains a so-called “web beacon”, ie a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from our server when the newsletter is opened or, if we use a shipping service provider, from their server. As part of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval, are initially collected.
This information is used to technically improve the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour based on their access locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or the access times. The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our aim nor, if used, that of the shipping service provider to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
7. Google Analytics
Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law ( https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active ).
Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online offer by users, to compile reports on the activities within this online offer and to provide us with other services related to the use of this online offer and the internet. Pseudonymous user profiles can be created from the processed data.
We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization.

With the help of the Facebook pixel, Facebook is able, on the one hand, to determine the visitors of our online offer as a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called “Facebook ads”). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to only display the Facebook ads placed by us to those Facebook users who have shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products that are based on the visited Websites determined) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called “custom audiences”). With the help of the Facebook pixel, we would also like to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and do not have a nuisance. With the help of the Facebook pixel, we can also understand the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements for statistical and market research purposes, in which we see whether users have been forwarded to our website after clicking on a Facebook advertisement (so-called “conversion”).
The Facebook pixel is currently set: Facebook pixel opt-out

If one of the above reasons applies and a data subject wishes to have personal data stored at STRONGERLAB deleted, they can contact an employee of the controller at any time. I will arrange for the request for deletion to be complied with immediately.
If the personal data has been made public by STRONGERLAB and I am responsible as a person responsible pursuant to Art. 17 Para. 1 GDPR to delete the personal data, I will take appropriate measures, including technical ones, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs for data controllers who process the published personal data, to inform that the data subject has asked these other data controllers to delete all links to this personal data or to copy or replicate this personal data, insofar as the processing is not necessary. I will arrange the necessary in individual cases.
e) Right to restriction of processing: Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulation giver to request the controller to restrict the processing if one of the following conditions is met:

f) Right to data portability: Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulation giver to the personal data concerning them, which was provided by the data subject to a responsible person, in a structured, common and machine-readable format receive. You also have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data has been provided, provided that the processing is based on consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter a GDPR or Art. 9 Para . 2 letter a GDPR or on a contract in accordance with Article 6 paragraph 1 letter b GDPR and the processing is carried out using automated processes unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task that is in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority, which has been transferred to the person responsible.
Furthermore, when exercising their right to data portability in accordance with Art. 20 Para. 1 GDPR, the data subject has the right to have the personal data transferred directly from one person responsible to another, insofar as this is technically feasible and if so this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other people.
To assert the right to data portability, the data subject can contact an employee of mine at any time.
g) Right to object: Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulation giver, for reasons that arise from their particular situation, at any time against the processing of personal data concerning them, which is based on Art. 6 para. 1 letters e or f GDPR, you have to lodge an objection.

This also applies to profile insofar as it is connected to such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to processing for direct marketing purposes, I will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the person concerned has the right, for reasons that arise from their particular situation, against the processing of personal data concerning me, which is carried out for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89 (1) GDPR to file an objection, unless such processing is necessary to fulfil a task in the public interest. To exercise the right to object, the data subject can contact any of my employees directly. The data subject is also free to exercise their right to object in connection with the use of information society services, regardless of Directive 2002/58 / EC, by means of automated procedures that use technical specifications.
h) Automated decisions in individual cases, including profiling: Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulatory authority not to be subjected to a decision based solely on automated processing – including profiling – that has a legal effect on them unfolds or similarly significantly affects, unless the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) due to Union or Member State law to which the controller is responsible subject to, is permissible and these legal provisions contain appropriate measures to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject or (3) is carried out with the express consent of the data subject.
If the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the person responsible or (2) it is made with the express consent of the data subject, I take appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms and the legitimate interests of the to protect the data subject, which includes at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the person responsible, to state their own position and to contest the decision.

17. Legal basis for processing
Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves me as the legal basis for processing operations in which I obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about my products or services. If I am subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to my company were injured and their name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third parties. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of me or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh them. Such processing operations are permitted to me in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).
18. Duration for which the personal data is stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the period has expired, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required to fulfil or initiate a contract.
19. Legal or contractual regulations for the provision of personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of the non-provision
I clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contracting party). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that a data subject provides me with personal data that must subsequently be processed by me. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide me with personal data if I conclude a contract with them. Failure to provide personal data would result in the contract not being concluded with the person concerned. Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject must contact one of my employees. My employee clarifies the person concerned 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 not providing the personal data.
