The entity responsible for processing your personal data in the sense of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is:
For more information on the terms used, such as “personal data” or their “processing”, please refer to Article 4 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The term “users” includes all categories of data subjects. They include my business partners, customers, interested parties and other visitors to my online offer.
Processing of Personal data on the mindfulnessa.com website
The personal data of users processed within the scope of this online offer includes inventory data (e.g. names and addresses of customers), contract data (e.g. services used and payment information), usage data (e.g. the websites visited on my online offer, interest in my services ) and content data (e.g. entries in the contact or newsletter form).
The purpose of the processing includes the provision of the online offer, its functions and content, answering contact requests and communication with users, security measures and range measurement as well as marketing.
I process users’ personal data only in compliance with the relevant data protection regulations. This means that the users’ data is only processed with legal permission.
This means, in particular, if the data processing is necessary or legally required for the provision of my contractual services (for example, processing of orders) and online services, the user’s consent is given. In addition, the users’ consent is also given on the basis of my legitimate interests (for example, interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation and security of the online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. of the GDPR, in particular in measuring reach, creating profiles for advertising and marketing purposes and collecting access data and using third-party services).
I point out that the legal basis for the consents is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a. and Art. 7 GDPR, the legal basis for the processing for the fulfilment of our services and implementation of contractual measures is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. GDPR, the legal basis for processing to fulfil our legal obligations is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c. GDPR, and the legal basis for processing to protect our legitimate interests is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR.
I take organizational, contractual and technical security measures in accordance with the state of the art to ensure that the provisions of data protection laws are complied with and thus to protect the data processed by me against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against access by unauthorized persons. The security measures include in particular the encrypted transmission of data between your browser and my server.
Transfer of data to third parties and third party providers
Data is only passed on to third parties within the framework of legal requirements. I only pass on users’ data to third parties if, for example, this is necessary for contractual purposes on the basis of Art. 6 (1) b) GDPR or on the basis of legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR. GDPR in the economic and effective operation of my business.
If I use subcontractors to provide my services, I take appropriate legal precautions and corresponding technical and organizational measures to ensure the protection of personal data in accordance with the relevant legal provisions.
Contact with me
If you contact me using the form on the website or by e-mail, the data you provide will be stored for a maximum of six months for the purpose of processing your enquiry and in case of follow-up questions. Of course, I will not pass on this data without your consent. However, it is also possible to use my website without providing personal data. As far as personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail address) is collected on my pages (e.g. newsletter or free promotional material), this is always done on a voluntary basis, as far as possible. This data will of course not be passed on to third parties without express consent.
I would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
When contacting me (via contact form or email), the user’s details are processed for the purpose of handling the contact request and its processing in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
Collection of access data and log files
I collect data on every access to my website on the basis of my legitimate interests as defined in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR, I collect data on every access to the server on which this service is located (so-called server log files). The access data includes the name of the website accessed, 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.
Log file information is stored for security reasons (e.g. for the clarification of abuse or fraud) for a maximum of seven days and then deleted. Data whose further storage is required for evidentiary purposes is exempt from deletion until the respective incident has been finally clarified.
This site only sets the cookies that are indispensable for the operation of this website. I do not collect statistics about website visitors.
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your device by your browser. They do not cause any damage. Cookies are used to make the website user-friendly. Some cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. They make it possible to recognise your browser on your next visit. If you do not wish this, you can set up your browser so that it informs you about the setting of cookies and only allows this in individual cases (for example, Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Internet Explorer). Stored cookies can be deleted in the system settings of the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of my website may be limited.
You have the possibility to subscribe to my newsletter via my website. For this I need your e-mail address and the declaration that you agree to receive the newsletter. The registration for the newsletter is done in a so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that you will receive an e-mail after registration in which you are asked to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can register with other email addresses.
The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time, as well as the IP address. Changes to your stored data in the newsletter software are also logged.
You can cancel the receipt of my newsletter at any time with one click, i.e. revoke your consent. At the same time, your consent to the dispatch of the newsletter by the dispatch service provider and the statistical analyses will expire. A separate cancellation of the dispatch by the dispatch service provider or the statistical analysis is unfortunately not possible. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter. If users have only subscribed to the newsletter and cancelled this subscription, their personal data will be deleted.
The newsletter is sent using “MailChimp”, a newsletter sending platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. The email addresses of the newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described in this notice, are stored on MailChimp’s servers in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on my behalf. Furthermore, according to its own information, MailChimp may use this data to optimise or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimisation of the dispatch and the presentation of the newsletters or for economic purposes to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of my newsletter recipients to write to them itself or to pass it on to third parties.
The newsletters contain a so-called “web-beacon”, i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information, such as information on the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and the time of the retrieval are initially collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services based on the technical data or the target groups and reading behaviour based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or the access times.
Statistical surveys also include determining whether 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 intention nor that of MailChimp to observe individual users. The analyses are much more used to recognise the reading habits of the users and to adapt the content to them or to send different content according to the interests of the users.
The use of the mailing service provider, the performance of the statistical surveys and analyses as well as the logging of the registration process are based on my legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. My interest is in the use of a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves both my business interests and the expectations of users.
Integration of services and contents of third parties
I use content or service providers within my online offer on the basis of my legitimate interests (the interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offer in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR) to integrate content or services offered by third-party providers, such as videos or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as “content”).
This always requires that the third-party providers of this content are aware of the IP address of the user, as without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to the user’s browser. The IP address is therefore necessary for the display of this content. I endeavour to only use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content.
Third-party providers may also use so-called “pixel tags” (invisible graphics, also known as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. These pixel tags can be used to analyse information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and may contain, among other things, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, time of visit and other information about the use of our website, as well as being linked to such information from other sources.
Deletion of data
The data stored by me will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required for its intended purpose and there are no legal obligations to retain the data. If the user’s data is not deleted because it is required for other and legally permissible purposes, its processing will be restricted. This means that the data is blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to user data that must be retained for reasons of commercial or tax law.
