Data Pol­i­cy

A. Sum­ma­ry

iRights.Lab GmbH oper­ates this online ser­vice at www.irights-lab.de in obser­vance of the applic­a­ble data pro­tec­tion rules. The web­space is pro­vid­ed for us by ALL-INKL.COM – Neue Medi­en Mün­nich, Haupt­straße 68, 02742 Frieder­s­dorf.

In the course of the use of this online ser­vice, it may be the case that var­i­ous pieces of per­son­al data are used for the fol­low­ing pur­pos­es:

  • Con­veyance of data
  • Improv­ing the online ser­vice
  • Newslet­ter sub­scrip­tion

Data will be processed depend­ing on the use, be that:

  • data sent to us by your brows­er, such as your IP address when you dask for online con­tent (HTTP request);
  • data we have saved into your re-iden­ti­fi­ca­tion file (HTTP cook­ie);
  • your email address (only in the con­text of newslet­ter func­tion);
  • your brows­er data will be made avail­able upon request to third par­ties where we use their ser­vices or con­tent direct­ly as a part of our ser­vice.

B. Data pro­cess­ing site

The site where data is processed in rela­tion to this online activ­i­ty is iRights.Lab GmbH, Schützen­straße 8, 10117 Berlin.

We will ensure that the applic­a­ble data pro­tec­tion rules aris­ing from the Ger­man Tele­ser­vices Act, the Inter­state Broad­cast­ing Agree­ment, the Fed­er­al Data Pro­tec­tion Act, and other data pro­tec­tion reg­u­la­tions are fol­lowed. The pro­tec­tion of per­son­al data is impor­tant to us.

In what fol­lows we aim to inform you of what data is gath­ered and saved and for what it is used for. In gen­er­al, per­son­al data is only used on this web­site for tech­ni­cal­ly nec­es­sary process­es. The data thus gen­er­at­ed is not under any cir­cum­stances sold or passed on to third par­ties. You always have the right to infor­ma­tion regard­ing data relat­ing to your­self which is saved, where it comes from, who receives it and the pur­pose of its reten­tion.

C. Con­veyance of online con­tent

In order to con­vey to you the web page you have called up, typ­i­cal­ly the fol­low­ing infor­ma­tion will be send by your brows­er (as part of what is called an HTTP request):

  • Your IP address, i.e. a series of fig­ures that iden­ti­fy your computer’s cur­rent inter­net con­nec­tion;
  • the web­site you have called up;
  • infor­ma­tion on the brows­er and oper­at­ing sys­tem that you are using, such as its name and ver­sion;
  • some­times the page from which you have come to our site (refer­rer infor­ma­tion).

Your IP address is need­ed for the con­veyance of the con­tent which you have called up.

D. Improv­ing our ser­vice with the use of vis­i­tor sta­tis­tics

In order to improve our online ser­vice, we some­times eval­u­ate how the site is used.

To do this, we cre­ate vis­i­tor sta­tis­tics using the Piwik appli­ca­tion. This appli­ca­tion has your brows­er save two iden­ti­fi­ca­tion num­bers (HTTP cook­ies) in order to dis­tin­guish dif­fer­ent kinds of users. In this con­nec­tion, your IP address is involved in the eval­u­a­tion, but it is short­ened in such a way that it is not pos­si­ble to ascribe it to you.

If you do not agree to hav­ing your site views includ­ed in the sta­tis­tics, you have sev­er­al options:

  • You can delete the HTTP cook­ies in your brows­er.
  • In many mod­ern browsers you can select set­tings that sig­nal to the page oper­a­tor that you do not want to be involved in such sta­tis­tics (so-called “do not track”). We will respect this set­ting.
  • Final­ly, you can also select a set­ting with­in our offer which will ensure that your site view­ing is not record­ed. For this, Piwik will save an opt-out cook­ie on your device which is valid for two years (“piwik_​ignore”), in order to pre­vent record­ing.

E. Newslet­ter sub­scrip­tion

Using our web­site, you can ask to be sub­scribed to our newslet­ter, so that you are kept abreast of new devel­op­ments. In order to process your sub­scrip­tion, we need to process your per­son­al data in an auto­mat­ed way. Your data will only be used to assist in send­ing out the newslet­ter, and only as agreed by you.
