You are visiting our website. We appreciate your interest in our company and the information and services offered here. With this data protection declaration, we would like to explain to you how we handle personal data.

Below, we are describing the legal situation under EU law, in particular Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and the Council of 2016-04-27 as implemented by Germany as Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG). These laws always apply to your interaction with cronologic GmbH & Co. KG. However, when you are located outside the EU for third party interactions, the situation might be different. Please contact the other party involved to obtain additional information.

We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidential and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration. This data protection declaration explains which data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done. We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email or accessing a web page) can have security gaps.

For transmissions originating at your side, the protection of data is governed by the software you are using and how you configured it. We do not take responsibility for the correctness and security of these transmissions.

We are committed to keeping your Personal Information secure on our Services. We limit our storage of your Personal Information to the amount of time necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we collected the Personal Information, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting obligations, or to resolve disputes.

Your Rights

With respect to your personal data, you have certain rights that are described below. They can be exercised by contacting the data protection officer of the party storing the data and the party that you sent the data to.

Right to withdraw consent. 
You have the right to withdraw your consent to storing your data at any time. However, the withdrawal of your consent will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before your withdrawal.

Right of access to and rectification of your Personal Information.
You have a right to request a copy of your Personal Information. You will receive a copy without undue delay subject to some fee associated with the gathering of the information (as permitted by law). Your request might be limited or denied if providing you with a copy could adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others. You may also request to correct or update any inaccurate Personal Information.

Right to erasure (or, “The right to be forgotten”).
You have the right to request erasure of your Personal Information that: 
(a) is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed; 
(b) was collected in relation to processing that you previously consented to, but no longer consent to; or 
(c) was collected in relation to processing activities to which you object, and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for our processing. Your right to erasure is subject to limitations by relevant Data Protection Laws.

Right to restriction of processing.
You have the right to restrict processing of your Personal Information where one of the following applies:

1. You contest the accuracy of your Personal Information. In such instances, processing will be restricted during the period necessary to verify the accuracy of your Personal Information.

2. The processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of your Personal Information and request the restriction of its use instead.

3. Your Personal Information is not longer needed for the purposes of the processing, but it is required by you to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims.

4. You have objected to processing, pending the verification of whether the legitimate grounds for  processing override your rights.

Restricted Personal Information shall only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest. We will inform you if the restriction is lifted.

• Notification of erasure, rectification, and restriction. We will communicate any rectification or erasure of your Personal Information or restriction of processing to each recipient to whom your Personal Information has been disclosed, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort. We will inform you about those recipients if you request this information. If we have made your Personal Information public and we are required to erase the Personal Information, we will, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform other parties that are processing your Personal Information that you have requested the erasure of any links to, or copy or replication of your Personal Information.

• Right to object to processing. Where the processing of your Personal Information is based on consent, contract, or legitimate interests, you may restrict or object, at any time, to the processing of your Personal Information as permitted by applicable law. Processing of your Personal Information may continue if it is necessary for the defense of legal claims, or for any other exceptions permitted by applicable law.

• Automated individual decision-making, including profiling. You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing of your Personal Information, including profiling, which produces legal or similarly significant effects on you. There may be exceptions or limitations to this right as defined under relevant Data Protection Laws.

• Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of violations of the GDPR, the data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged violation. The right of appeal exists without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.

Your rights to your Personal Information are not without limits. Access may be denied when:

• Denial of access is required or authorized by law

• Granting access would have a negative impact on other's privacy

• Doing so protects our rights and properties, or

• Where the request is frivolous or vexatious

Browsing the Website

Hoster „Webflow“

Our website is stored on servers of our hoster, Webflow. We use the "Webflow" service. The provider is Webflow, San Francisco HQ, United States, 398 11th St, San Francisco (hereinafter "Webflow").

Webflow provides its own Privacy Policy which governs the interactions where you provide information directly to Webflow’s servers.
For personal data that we provide to Webflow for storage, we entered into a contract for data processing in compliance with §11 BDSG. This contract is binding Webflow to follow similar rules for data processing as are set out in this policy. You can obtain a copy of this contract by contacting our data protection officer.

SSL or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, this site offers an SSL or. TLS encryption. With most browsers, you can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http: //” to “https: //” and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated and correctly implemented by your software, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

IP Numbers

When you are sending a request for a web page to Webflow’s servers, you need to include the IP address that the website content should be sent to in return. This could be the IP address of your own computer or of a different computer that you are using to collect data for your browser (Proxy Server). Webflow is using this data to fulfill the website request that you initiated (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. A GDPR). Webflow might store the IP number you presented after completing your request for other purposes according to Webflow’s Privacy Policy. However, cronologic has no access to your IP number at any time.

Online Identifiers

Our website does not process any personal data.

However, in order for us to offer you the best possible experience on our websites, we need to collect and process certain information. This will contain anonymized usage data. For this purpose we use the open-source analysis tool Matomo Analytics (formerly Piwik) for statistical purposes, to improve our site, and to recognize and stop any misuse. 

We have configured Matomo in such a way that no cookies are used and IP addresses are anonymized (by six digits) so that no personal data is collected.

If you have any questions about this privacy policy, please contact the privacy team at <a href="javascript:linkTo_UnCryptMailto('nbjmup;qsjwbdzAnbupnp/psh');">privacy [at] matomo [dot] org</a>.

Depending on which software (browser) you are using to access the website and how you did configure it, a website request to Matomo and/or Webflow might also be accompanied by data. This can include:

• geolocation details

• Date and time in local timezone

• Title of the page being viewed

• URL of the page being viewed

• URL of the page that was viewed prior to the current page

• Link clicks to an outside domain

• Pages generation time

• Main Language of the browser

• User-Agent of the browser

• browser fingerprint

• operating system

• browser name and version

• screen size and size of the browser windows

• installed fonts and plug-ins

• the source of the link you followed to our site

• and more

If a lot of this data is transmitted, it often is sufficient to use it as a unique identifier to track your usage of the world wide web. We therefore encourage you to not send to Matomo or Webflow any data that is not required to use the website. However, we recommend that you provide the information on screen and window size as well as installed fonts so that the look of the website can be adjusted to your device.

According to Webflow’s Privacy Policy they might store online identifiers for various purposes. However, cronologic has no access to your online identifiers at any time and these will not be passed to any third parties.

Webflow uses online identifiers to create statistics on website usage and other aggregate information and presents them to us. There is no personal data contained in these presentations.

Form Content

When you fill out a form on our website, it is first sent to Webflow and stored on Webflow’s servers on our behalf. This storage is covered by the data protection contract that we have in place with Webflow.

It is also forwarded by e-mail to our mail servers where it is processed by one of our employees. When sending the form, you consent to the processing of the information provided for the purposes that you stated in the form (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR).

If you request that we contact a representative to help you with your request, we will forward the information that you provided to them (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR).

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies. Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

External Links

We link to external content on our website. When you klick on such a link, you instruct your software to start a new website request to the address given in the link. Neither we nor Webflow are part of this transaction.

In particular, we do not control whether the external website does respond to your request with the same content as it did when we reviewed the content. Therefore, we do not take any responsibility for any objectionable or inaccurate content served to you under the given address.

Please inform us about any issues with the links that we provided.

Included Content

In the future, we might add code to the website that suggest that your software contacts a third party server to download content and display in the context of our website. 
Whether your software does in fact send a request to the address provided by us or to a different address or to no address at all, is solely controlled by your software and the way you configured it. 
We also can’t control whether the third party server does provide you with the same content that it did serve to us when we reviewed the content.
