Purposes for which personal data are processed, as well as legal basis

Personal data are collected and utilized by us only in accordance with German and European data protection law.

Website

Our website can be used without providing personal information. As far as you can enter personal data on our pages (for example via a contact form), this is always done on a voluntary basis, as far as possible. These data will not be disclosed to third parties, unless you expressly request it. When visiting the website, personal data are collected for technical reasons. We use these data only for the technical improvement of the site, as well as to analyze, track and prevent technical problems, attacks, and similar problems.

Demo

The demo can be used without providing personal data.

Registration as a prospective customer

If you register as an interested party for Helio, your data will be included in the mailing list, which will be used regularly to send information about Helio, for example about the state of development. More information can be found below under "Newsletter". 
If appropriate, we will also contact you personally with individual information, for example in order to receive a test access.
The data will not be used for any other purpose.

If you voluntarily give us further personal information for example by using a web form or by contacting us directly, we will use it solely for the purpose intended.

The legal basis for data processing is always your consent, the performance of a contract or other legal transaction, a legal obligation or the existence of legitimate interests.

Legitimate interests pursued by the person responsible or a third party

If the legal basis for the data processing is a legitimate interest, this is usually the safeguarding of operational processes as well as the security and technical improvement of the website and the tools used. Specifically, in the case of technical problems or attacks, we only use the data to analyze, track and prevent further problems or attacks.

Recipient

All personal data are only processed internally. A transfer to external service providers is only effected if this is absolutely necessary for contractual, legal or technological reasons. Further information is available under the individual tools below.

Third country / International organization

Data transfer to a third country or to an international organization does not take place, unless tools from external service providers are used and data transfer cannot be prevented. In as far as we transfer data to a third country or process them there in this context, this is done in compliance with the provisions of the GDPR. In particular, we place great value on a recognized level of privacy, e.g. through the "EU-US Privacy Shield", recognized certifications and contractual obligations. Further information is available under the individual tools below.

Storage duration / criteria

All personal data will be deleted immediately when the purpose of their collection no longer applies, unless there are legal or contractual archiving obligations or other legitimate interests.

Your rights

According to the GDPR you are entitled to information about your personal data that we have stored. Furthermore you may also be entitled to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, opposition to processing, and data portability. You can assert these claims at any time by using the contact details above.

Right of revocation

If you have given us consent to process your personal data, you can revoke it with effect for the future at any time. The lawfulness of the processing until revocation remains unaffected.

Right of appeal

If you believe that the processing of your personal data is in violation of the GDPR, you have a right of appeal to a regulatory authority.

Profiling

No profiling takes place with us.

Services of other providers

On our side, the services of other providers, e.g. Vimeo, are integrated. These may use cookies without our having any influence or being able to expressly point to them. The most common browsers allow you to define the handling of cookies in the browser settings. You will find information on the procedure in the help function of your browser. If you do not wish any data transfer to the respective provider, do not select the service, e.g. the stored video.

Newsletter, MailChimp

We send out newsletters and similar electronic notifications only with your consent or on the basis of a legal permission, for example advertising for existing customers. In addition to the e-mail address, we use your name to address you personally. If you provide us with further information, we use it to tailor the electronic notification to your personal interests.
The newsletter will be sent via "MailChimp", a newsletter distribution platform owned by the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE # 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. MailChimp is certified under the US-EU data protection agreement "Privacy Shield", and is committed to complying with EU privacy regulations. The e-mail addresses and other information provided by the newsletter recipients during registration are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletters on our behalf, but not to write to the recipients themselves or to pass their data on to third parties. A corresponding contract ("Data Processing Agreement") has been concluded.

Web beacon

The newsletters contain a so-called "web beacon", this means a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. In the course of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and the time of the retrieval are collected. This information is used to improve the technical performance of the services on the basis of their specifications or target groups and their reading behavior, based on their locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or 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 desire nor that of MailChimp to monitor individual users. The evaluations are rather used 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.

Online retrieval and data management

There are cases where we direct the newsletter recipients to the websites of MailChimp. For example, our newsletters contain a link that allows newsletter recipients to retrieve newsletters online (for example, in the event of display problems in the e-mail program. Furthermore, newsletter recipients can subsequently correct their data, such as the e-mail address. Similarly, the data protection policy of MailChimp is only available on their page. In this context, we point out that cookies are used on the websites of MailChimp and thus personal data are processed by MailChimp, their partners and the service providers used (such as Google Analytics). We have no influence on this data collection. For more information, please refer to the Privacy Policy of MailChimp. (The Privacy Policy of MailChimp can be found here: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy). In addition, we would like to draw your attention to the possibility of objecting to the collection of data for advertising purposes on the websites http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ and http://www.youronlinechoices.com/ (for the European area).

Termination and revocation

You can terminate the receipt of our newsletter at any time, meaning revoke your consent. At the same time, your consent to it being sent via MailChimp and the statistical analyses expires. Unfortunately, a separate revocation of the dispatch via MailChimp or the statistical evaluation is not possible. A link for cancelling the newsletter can be found at the end of each newsletter.
