Access data/ server log files
We (respectively our webspace provider) collect data about every access to our website (so-called server log files). These access data include:
Name of the accessed website, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.
We use the log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of the operation, security and optimization of the website. However, we reserve the right to subsequently check the protocol data if, based on concrete evidence, there is a justified suspicion of illegal use. These log files are stored for a period of two weeks to detect and document attacks against our website. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.
Handling of personal data
Personal data is information with the help of which a person can be determined, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, email address or telephone number. But also data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites were viewed by someone else are considered personal data.
Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by us if this is permitted by law or if the users agree to the data collection.
When contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail), the user’s details are stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in the event that follow-up questions arise. We store this information for verification purposes for a period of up to two years. Legal basis for data processing Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.
In the case of an application, the data voluntarily submitted to us by the applicant will be processed for the purpose of carrying out and handling the application process. Recipients of the data are exclusively the persons involved in the application process at our company. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Par. 1 letter b DS-GVO.
If an application is rejected, the data will be stored for 6 months after the application process is completed. This storage period results from the possible assertion of claims under the AGG. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.
Comments and contributions
If you leave comments in the blog or other posts, your IP addresses are stored. This is done for our security in case someone writes illegal content in comments and posts (insults, prohibited political propaganda, etc.). In this case we can be prosecuted ourselves for the comment or post and are therefore interested in the identity of the author. Legal basis for data processing Art. 6 Par. 1 letter f DS-GVO.
You can subscribe to the follow-up comments. You will receive a confirmation email to verify that you are the owner of the email address you entered. You can unsubscribe current comment subscriptions at any time. The confirmation email will contain instructions to do so. Legal basis for data processing Art. 6 Par. 1 letter f DS-GVO.
Integration of third-party services and content
It may happen that within our website third party content, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated. This always presupposes that the providers of such content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) are aware of the IP address of the users. Without the IP address, they would not be able to send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required to display this content. We make every effort to use only such content whose respective providers use the IP address only to deliver the content. However, we have no influence on this if the third-party providers store the IP address for statistical purposes, for example. As far as this is known to us, we will inform you about it. The legal basis for the integration of this service is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.
When you visit our website, one or more cookies are stored on your computer. A cookie is a small file containing a specific character string that uniquely identifies your browser. Cookies help us to improve the comfort and quality of our service, for example by storing user settings. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses.
It is also possible to use our website without cookies. You can deactivate the storage of cookies in your browser, restrict it to certain websites or set your browser to notify you before a cookie is stored. You can delete the cookies from your computer’s hard drive at any time using the data protection functions of your browser. In this case, the functions and user-friendliness of our website could be restricted.
Every user of this website can object to the collection and storage of data by cookies at any time for the future here.
Data processing in third countries
If we process data in a third country (i.e., outside the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA)) or if the processing takes place in the context of the use of services of third parties or the disclosure or transfer of data to other persons, bodies or companies, we are currently working to fully comply with the legal requirements again.
Subject to express consent or contractual or legally required transfer, we endeavor to have data processed only in third countries with a recognized level of data protection, contractual obligations through so-called standard protection clauses of the EU Commission, in the presence of certifications or binding internal data protection regulations (Art. 44 to 49 DSGVO, information page of the EU Commission: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection_de ).
Use of Facebook Social Plugins
We use social plugins (“Plugins”) of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on blue tile or a “thumbs up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and appearance of the Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When a user calls up a website that contains such a plugin, his browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser, which integrates it into the website. We therefore have no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore inform the users according to our knowledge:
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has called up the corresponding page of the offer. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his or her Facebook account. When users interact with the plugins, for example, by pressing the Like button or posting a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from their browser to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to find out his or her IP address and store it. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is stored in Germany.
The legal basis for the use of the plugin is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as the relevant rights and setting options to protect the privacy of users, can be found in the Facebook data protection information: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.
If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him or her and link it to his or her membership data stored on Facebook, he or she must log out of Facebook before visiting the website.
It is also possible to block Facebook social plug-ins with add-ons for your browser, for example with the “Facebook Blocker”.
We use the buttons of the Twitter service. These buttons are provided by Twitter Inc, 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. They are recognizable by terms such as “Twitter” or “follow” associated with a stylized blue bird. Using the buttons, it is possible to share a post or page on Twitter or follow us on Twitter.
When a user accesses our website that contains such a button, his or her browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of Twitter. The content of the Twitter buttons is transmitted by Twitter directly to the user’s browser. We therefore have no influence on the extent of the data that Twitter collects with the help of this plugin and inform the users according to their level of knowledge. According to this, only the IP address of the user, the URL of the respective website is transmitted when the button is obtained, but it is not used for any other purpose than to display the button.
The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. For the purpose, duration and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of your data, as well as your rights in this regard and possible settings to protect your privacy, please refer to the data protection information of Twitter: https://twitter.com/privacy?lang=de

We offer you the possibility to subscribe to our newsletter on our website. If you have given us separate consent to inform you by e-mail about our company’s own products and services, the corresponding processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO.
If we process your personal data on the basis of your consent, you can revoke your consent at any time without this affecting the lawfulness of the processing that has taken place to date. If consent is revoked, we will cease the corresponding data processing.

We use Microsoft “Bookings” service for online scheduling. For scheduling, it is mandatory to enter the name and the e-mail address. Optionally, the telephone number, address and notes also be entered. The use of the service is voluntary and based on the user’s consent within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (a) DSGVO.
With the “booking” of an appointment request, the data is transferred to the Microsoft Cloud. The data is then processed within the framework of the Microsoft 365 cloud service in Microsoft data centres in the EU. It has been contractually agreed with Microsoft that the data will not leave the EU area and will not be evaluated, read or processed in any other way by Microsoft. The order processing contract we have concluded with Microsoft Ireland contains the EU data protection clauses, Microsoft’s data centre operation is certified in accordance with the ISO 27018 data protection guidelines, and all data is machine-encrypted. The use of Microsoft 365 is compliant with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) under the condition of voluntariness.
At this point, we would like to point out that there are currently no DSGVO-compliant data protection guarantees for the use of Microsoft 365, as the ECJ has declared the EU-US Privacy Shield invalid as suitable data protection guarantees in a ruling of 16.7.2020. You can find more information and a statement from Microsoft at https://news.microsoft.com/de-de/stellungnahme-zum-urteil-des-eugh-was-wir-unseren-kunden-zum-grenzueberschreitenden-datentransfer-bestaetigen-koennen/.
Your data will be automatically deleted after the deadline, unless you exercise your right to delete beforehand. You have the right to delete the data entered in the scheduling process at any time by sending an informal e-mail to the user concerned. Further information on your rights can be found in the section “Your rights as a user” in our data protection declaration.

Here we would like to inform you about the handling of your data in accordance with Art. 13 of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO).
Holisticon AG operates the social media services:
You can find our contact details in our imprint.
Next to Holisticon AG there is always the service provider of the social media platform. Without this service provider the social media offer in its respective form would not be possible. In this respect, the provider of the platform is also a further responsible party who carries out data processing, on which we have only limited influence. At the points where we can exert influence and parameterize the data processing, we work within the framework of the possibilities available to us to ensure that the service provider of the social media platform handles the data in a manner that is in compliance with data protection laws. In many cases, however, we cannot influence the data processing by the service provider of the social media platform and have no knowledge of exactly which data is processed by the service provider.
With the current legal situation in mind, we are currently working to fully comply with the legal requirements again. You will find details on this in privacy.
Processing of your data by Holisticon AG
The data you upload to our social media offering – such as comments, videos, pictures, likes, public messages, etc. – is used to provide you with the best possible service. – are published by the service provider of the social media platform and are not used or processed by us at any time for other purposes. We only reserve the right to delete content if this should be necessary. In some cases we share your content on our offer if this is a function of the respective social media platform and communicate with you via the social media platform. The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. The data processing is carried out in the interest of our public relations and communication. In addition, you may also have given your consent to the platform operator for data processing, in which case the legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO.
If you would like to object to a specific data processing – over which we have influence – please use the contact data given in the imprint. We will then examine your objection immediately.
If you send us an inquiry via the social media platform, we may also refer you to other, more secure communication channels, depending on the answer required. Please note that you always have the option of sending us confidential inquiries to our address given in the imprint.
It is a matter of great concern to us, whenever the respective service provider of the social media platform gives us the opportunity to do so, to make our social media offers as data protection compliant as possible. Therefore, we do not use demographic, interest, behavioral or location-based target group definitions for advertising, which the respective provider of the social media platform may provide us with.
As far as the respective platform provides us with statistics, we can only influence them to a limited extent and cannot always deactivate them. However, it is of great concern to us that no additional optional statistics are made available to us.
Data processing by the service provider of the social media platform
The operator of the social media platform uses web tracking methods. Web tracking can also be carried out independently of whether a user is logged on to the respective social media platform or registered at all. As already explained, Holisticon AG can only have a very limited influence on the web tracking procedures of the social media platforms. Often Holisticon AG cannot deactivate them.
Therefore, please note: It cannot be excluded that the service provider of the social media platform may use your personal data, for example to evaluate your habits, personal relationships, preferences, etc. In this respect, we regularly have no influence on the processing of your data by the provider of the social media platform.
