Privacy Policy

We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is of particular importance to the management of BigMove AG. The use of the Internet pages of BigMove AG is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to use special services of our company via our website, processing of personal data may be necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. In addition, data subjects are informed about their rights by means of this data protection declaration. As the controller, BigMove AG has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of the personal data processed via this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security vulnerabilities, so absolute protection cannot be guaranteed.

4. Cookies

The websites of BigMove AG use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored and stored on a computer system via an internet browser.
Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string by which websites and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows the websites and servers visited to distinguish the individual browser of the data subject from other internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified by the unique cookie ID. By using cookies, BigMove AG can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting. By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized in the sense of the user. Cookies allow us to recognize the users of our website, as mentioned above. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re-enter his access data every time he visits the website, because this is taken over by the website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in the online shop. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie. The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.

5. Collection of general data and information

The website of BigMove AG collects a series of general data and information with each call-up of the website by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The browser types and versions used (1) can be recorded, (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, which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (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 other data (8) other data , which are designed to prevent attacks on our information technology systems. When using this general data and information, BigMove AG does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) correctly deliver the contents of our website, (2) to optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) to ensure the long-term 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 cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated statistically by BigMove AG on the one hand and further with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company, in order to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

6. Registration on our website

The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the controller with personal data. The personal data transmitted to the controller is determined by the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject will be collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller and for his own purposes. The controller may arrange for the transfer to one or more processors, such as a parcel service provider, who also uses the personal data exclusively for internal use attributable to the controller. By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) to the data subject, the date and time of registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place against the background that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services and to enable this data to be investigated if necessary. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary to secure the controller. In principle, this data will not be passed on to third parties, provided that there is no legal obligation to pass it on or if the disclosure serves the purpose of law enforcement. The registration of the data subject with the voluntary disclosure of personal data serves the controller to offer the data subject content or services which, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to change the personal data provided at the time of registration or to have them completely deleted from the data set of the controller. The controller shall provide each data subject with information on which personal data about the data subject is stored at any time upon request. Furthermore, the controller corrects or deletes personal data upon request or notice of the data subject, insofar as this is not precluded by legal retention obligations. In this context, the entire tying of the employees of the controller are available to the data subject as a contact person.

7. Subscription to our newsletter

On the BigMove AG website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company’s newsletter. Which personal data is transmitted to the controller when ordering the newsletter is determined by the input mask used for this purpose. BigMove AG regularly informs its customers and business partners about the company’s offers by means of a newsletter. The newsletter of our company can only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter sending. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address entered for the first time by a data subject in the sending of the newsletter using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to verify that the owner of the e-mail address, as the data subject, has authorized the receipt of the newsletter. When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system used by the data subject at the time of registration by the Internet service provider (ISP) as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date and therefore serves the legal protection of the controller. The personal data collected in the context of a subscription to the newsletter will only be used for sending our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by e-mail, if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or for a related registration, as could be the case in case of changes to the newsletter offer or changes in technical circumstances. The personal data collected within the framework of the newsletter service will not be passed on to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled by the data subject at any time. Consent to the storage of personal data that the data subject has given us for sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking consent, there is a corresponding link in each newsletter. Furthermore, it is possible to unsubscribe from the sending of the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the controller or to inform the controller of this in any other way.
Using MailChimp
Our newsletter is sent via MailChimp, a newsletter delivery platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described in the context of this notice, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletters on our behalf. Furthermore, According to its own information, MailChimp may use this data to optimize or improve its own services, e.B. for the technical optimization of the shipping and presentation of the newsletters or for economic purposes, in order to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write them themselves or to pass them on to third parties. We use MailChimp to improve our online offerings, for example by receiving information about whether our newsletter has been opened or which links have found the interest of our users. The appropriate level of data protection is ensured by the fact that MailChimp is certified according to the EU-US Privacy Shield and we have concluded a data protection agreement with the company. The legal basis for the processing of your data is your consent, Art. 6 I 1 a GDPR, which you can revoke at any time by unsubscribing from our newsletter. For this purpose, each newsletter contains an unsubscribe link.
MailChimp’s privacy policy can be found here: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy
Statistical survey and analysis
The newsletters contain a so-called “web-beacon”, i.e. a pixel-sized file, which is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. 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 collected first. This information is used to improve the technical requirements of the Services on the basis of the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour on the basis of the polling locations (which can be determined by means of the IP address) or the access times. 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 not our intention 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.

8. Newsletter-Tracking

The newsletters of BigMove AG contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a thumbnail graphic embedded in emails sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns to be carried out. Using the embedded tracking pixel, BigMove AG can detect if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject and which links in the e-mail were accessed by the data subject. Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the controller in order to optimize the sending of the newsletter and to better adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Affected persons are entitled at any time to revoke the relevant separate declaration of consent made via the double opt-in procedure. After a revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the controller. BigMove AG automatically interprets a cancellation of the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.

9. Possibility of contact via the website

The website of BigMove AG contains information based on legal regulations, which enables a quick electronic contact to our company as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the controller shall be stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.

The controller has integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to display ads in both Google’s search engine results and google’s advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-determine specific keywords that display an ad in Google’s search engine results only when the user uses the search engine to retrieve a keyword-relevant search result. In the Google advertising network, the ads are distributed on topic-relevant websites using an automatic algorithm and in compliance with the previously defined keywords. The operator of the services of Google AdWords is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland. The purpose of Google AdWords is to promote our website by displaying interest-relevant advertising on the websites of third-party companies and in the search engine results of the search engine Google and to display third-party advertising on our website. If a data subject arrives at our website via a Google ad, a so-called conversion cookie is stored on the information technology system of the data subject by Google. What cookies are has already been explained above. A conversion cookie expires after thirty days and is not used to identify the data subject. If the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie is used to track whether certain subpages, such as the shopping cart from an online shop system, have been accessed on our website. The conversion cookie allows both us and Google to understand whether a data subject who has entered our website via an AdWords ad generated revenue, i.e. completed or cancelled a purchase of goods. The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie are used by Google to compile visit statistics for our website. In turn, we use these visit statistics to determine the total number of users who have been taught to us through AdWords ads, to determine the success or failure of each AdWords ad, and to optimize our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could identify the data subject. The conversion cookie is used to store personal information, such as the websites visited by the data subject. Every time you visit our website, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties. The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already shown above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs. Furthermore, the data subject has the possibility to object to the interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, the data subject must call www.google.de/settings/ads from the link and make the desired settings from each of the Internet browsers he uses.

21. Legal basis for processing
Article 6 I lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for our company for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. Where 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, in the case of processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing shall be based on Article 6 I lit.b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing shall be based on Article 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 our company were to be injured and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third parties. The processing would then be based on Article 6 I lit. d GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is based on processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases where the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We are allowed to do this kind of processing, in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In that regard, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be presumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).

22. Eligible interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party
Based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest in carrying out our business for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR.

23. Duration for which the personal data will be stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After the expiry of the period, the relevant data will be routinely deleted, provided that they are no longer necessary for the performance of the contract or initiation of the contract.

24. Legal or contractual provisions 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 non-provisioning
We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations.B) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.B. information about the contractual partner). In some ways, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before providing personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee clarifies 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 what consequences the non-provision of the personal data would have.

25. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling. This data protection declaration was prepared by the data protection declaration generator of DGD Deutsche Gesellschaft für Datenschutz GmbH, which operates as External Data Protection Officer Hamburg, in cooperation with the data protection lawyer Christian Solmecke.
