Data Protection

Data protection has a high priority for the management of Prianto Limited. Therefore, we strictly adhere to the rules of data protection laws and other data protection relevant regulations according to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as well as applicable country-specific data protection regulations. Hereby we would like to give you, as a visitor of our website, an overview of the measures we have taken to protect personal data and to inform about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of their rights under this privacy policy.

Prianto Limited, as controller, has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for the processed personal data. Nevertheless, in particular Internet-based data transmissions, there might be security gaps so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed in principle. For this reason, every person concerned is free to submit personal data to us in alternative ways, for example by telephone.

Collection of general data and information

The website of the Prianto Limited collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files.

·      the browser types and versions used

·      the operating system used by the accessing system,

·      the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers),

·      the sub-websites,

·      the date and time of access to the Internet site,

·      an Internet protocol address (IP address),

·      the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and

·      any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our Information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, the Prianto Limited does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to

·      deliver the content of our website correctly,

·      optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement,

·      ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and

·      provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack.

Therefore, the Prianto Limited analyses anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and 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.

In addition, in some cases, visiting our website requires to provide additional personal data (such as name, address, company, position, e-mail address or telephone number). This is the case, for example, if you register for an event / promotion / webinar, request the postal mailing of information material or the submission of a concrete and individual offer or register as a new customer of Prianto Limited.

By registering, a business relationship comes into existence, according to which, according to the UWG §7, contact via e-mail is permitted.

At events / webinars / promotions, we protect the personal data of the participant and take all necessary measures for its security. The participant data will be collected and used for processing, support and evaluation of the offered events / webinars / promotions and for the purpose of optimizing the offer, but will not be passed on to third parties. Our manufacturer sponsors are also subject to the aforementioned provisions. By registering, the participant / manufacturer representative gives us the specific permission to pass on the corresponding data to the manufacturer sponsors, who use them for follow-up activities of the respective event / webinar / promotion, but are not allowed to pass them on to third parties. By registering, the participant authorizes Prianto to use the photos / videos taken by Prianto for media-independent use and to publish his/her name and Company.

You can always update your contact preferences by sending an e-mail to kontakt@prianto.com . Likewise, event participants agree with their registration to publish their name, position and company regarding the respective event. Order processing requires automated data processing. The reseller partner acknowledges and agrees that we may require personal data from its employees to be used or stored in automated data processing and internally by or at Prianto, Prianto subsidiaries or to transfer to suppliers. Such processing, storage and transmission is required to enable us to comply with the obligation to sell products, licenses or services to the reseller partner, as well as for commercial use based on local personal data protection laws.
Data may be used in any of the countries in which Prianto and its affiliates do business, including third countries outside the European Union.

We reserve the right, for the purpose of the credit check of the customer to obtain information from credit reporting agencies or credit insurance organizations, regarding the creditworthiness of the customer. We reserve the right to report data in the case of non-contractual settlement e.g. request for payment of a claim in the case of undisputed claim, order of execution issued, enforcement measures. The transfer of data only takes place if this is necessary to safeguard legitimate interests of Prianto and the interests of the customer that are worthy of protection are not impaired. In doing so, Prianto will comply with the relevant data protection regulations. The provision of the data referred to is necessary for the fulfillment of the contract (Art. 13 para. 2 DSGVO). Without this, the contract cannot be concluded or brokered.

 

Subscription to our newsletters

On the website of Prianto Limited, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our enterprise's newsletter. The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted, as well as when the newsletter is ordered from the controller.

Prianto Limited informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of a newsletter about enterprise offers. The data subject may only receive the enterprise’s newsletter if

·      the data subject has a valid e-mail address and

·      the data subject registers for the newsletter

A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered by a data subject for the first time for newsletter shipping, for legal reasons, in the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to prove whether the owner of the e-mail address as the data subject is authorized to receive the newsletter.

During the registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject at the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date, and it therefore serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller.

The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-mail, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in question, as this could be the case in the event of modifications to the newsletter offer, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances. There will be no transfer of personal data collected by the newsletter service to third parties. The data subject may terminate the subscription to our newsletter at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given for shipping the newsletter, may be revoked at any time.

For the purpose of revocation of consent, a corresponding link can be found in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the controller, or to communicate this to the controller in a different way.

Newsletter Tracking

The newsletter of Prianto Limited contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, Prianto Limited may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were called up by data subjects.

Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the shipping of the newsletter, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. 

Data subjects are at any time entitled to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent issued by means of the double-opt-in procedure. After a revocation, the controller will delete this personal data. Prianto Limited automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.

Contact possibility via the website

The website of Prianto Limited contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, 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 are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no transfer of this personal data to
third parties.


Comments function in the blog on the website

The Prianto Limited offers users the possibility to leave individual comments on individual blog contributions on a blog, which is on the website of the controller. A blog is a web based, publicly accessible portal, through which one or more people called bloggers or web bloggers may post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blogposts. Third parties may usually comment blogposts.

If a data subject leaves a comment on the blog published on this website, the comments made by the data subject are also stored and published, as well as information on the date of the commentary and on the user's (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject.

In addition, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) to the data subject is also logged. This storage of the IP address takes place for security reasons, and in case the data subject violates the rights of third parties, or posts illegal content through a given comment. The storage of these personal data is, therefore, in the own interest of the data controller, so that he can exculpate in the event of an infringement. This collected personal data will not be passed to third parties, unless such a transfer is required by law or serves the aim of the defense of the data controller.


Subscription to comments in the blog on the website

Third parties may subscribe to the comments made in the blog of Prianto Limited. In particular, there is the possibility that a commenter subscribes to the comments following his comments on a particular blog post.

If a data subject decides to subscribe to the option, the controller will send an automatic confirmation e-mail to check the double opt-in procedure as to whether the owner of the specified e-mail address decided in favour of this option. The option to subscribe to comments may be terminated at any time.

Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

We base the protection of your personal data on the three pillars:
1. Full transparency of what happens to your data and when and how you handle it
2. Data economy, meaning minimization of the amount of required data
3. Strict purpose limitation for the use of the data provided by you

In no case will collected data be sold or passed on to third parties, except the latter is required for the performance of the contract or the provision of services. A transmission to authorities or state institutions with information right only takes place, if these are subject to a legal obligation to provide information or judicially. In such cases, the transmission is generally limited to the minimum extent required.

After the purpose of the data retention is abolished (and after expiration of possibly relevant tax and commercial retention periods) all stored personal data is deleted immediately, if at that time no explicit agreement to a further data use exists.

Basically, you can assert your legal rights according to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) free of form and charge:

Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google Analytics
On this website, the controller has integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the anonymizer function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website, from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimization of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.

For the web, analytics through Google Analytics the controller uses the application "_gat.anonymizelp". By means of this application, the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is abridged by Google and anonymised when accessing our websites from a Member State of the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services concerning the use of our Internet site for us.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will automatically submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently create commission settlements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website by the data subject.

With each visit to our Internet site, such personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.

The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.

In addition, the data subject has the possibility of objecting to a collection of data that are generated by Google Analytics, which is related to the use of this website, as well as the processing of this data by Google and the chance to preclude any such. For this purpose, the data subject must download a browser add-on under the link tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and install it. This browser add-on tells Google Analytics through a JavaScript, that any data and information about the visits of Internet pages may not be transmitted to Google Analytics. Google considers the installation of the browser add-ons. If the information technology system of the data subject is later deleted, formatted, or newly installed, then the data subject must reinstall the browser add-ons to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on was uninstalled by the data subject or any other person who is attributable to their sphere of competence, or is disabled, it is possible to execute the reinstallation or reactivation of the browser add-ons.

Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and under www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Google Analytics is further explained under the following Link https://www.google.com/analytics/.

You can prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent future collection of your information when you visit this site: 

 

Data protection provisions about the application and use of Facebook
On this website, the controller has integrated components of the enterprise Facebook. Facebook is a social network.

A social network is a place for social meetings on the Internet, an online community, which usually allows users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network may serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences, or enable the Internet community to provide personal or business-related information. Facebook allows social network users to include the creation of private profiles, upload photos, and network through friend requests.

The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, United States. If a person lives outside of the United States or Canada, the controller is the Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

The plugins are marked with a Facebook logo or the addition "Facebook Social Plugin".

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet website, which is operated by the controller and into which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-ins) was integrated, the web browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to download display of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook through the Facebook component. An overview of all the Facebook Plug-ins may be accessed under developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. During the course of this technical procedure, Facebook is made aware of what specific sub-site of our website was visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook, Facebook detects with every call-up to our website by the data subject—and for the entire duration of their stay on our Internet site—which specific sub-site of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This information is collected through the Facebook component and associated with the respective Facebook account of the data subject.

Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could identify the data subject.

The conversion cookie stores personal information, e.g. the Internet pages visited by the data subject. Each time we visit our Internet pages, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. Google in the United States of America stores these personal data. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as stated above, by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from placing a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie set by Google AdWords may be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

The data subject has a possibility of objecting to the interest based advertisement of Google. Therefore, the data subject must access from each of the browsers in use the link www.google.de/settings/ads and set the desired settings.

(Version 1.0)

Legal basis for the processing
Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations, which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because the European legislator has specifically mentioned them. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party
Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favour of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.

Period for which the personal data will be stored
The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.

Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; Requirement necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide such data

We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact our Data Protection Officer. Our Data Protection Officer clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.

Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
