If the processing of personal data relating to you has been restricted, this data – with the exception of storage – may only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.
If you have obtained restriction of processing in accordance with the above conditions, you will be notified by the controller before the restriction of processing is lifted.
1.7.4. Right to erasure
a) Erasure obligation
You can demand that the controller deletes your personal data relating to you without undue delay, and the controller shall have the obligation to erase this data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies:
(1) The personal data relating to you are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
(2) You withdraw consent on which the processing is based according to point (a) of Article 6(1), or point (a) of Article 9(2) GDPR, and there is no other legal ground for the processing.
(3) You object to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR, and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) GDPR.
(4) The personal data relating to you have been processed unlawfully.

The right to erasure does not apply to the extent that the processing is necessary
(1) for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information;
(2) for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in exercising official authority vested in the controller;
(3) for reasons of public interest in the area of public health in accordance with points (h) and (i) of Article 9(2) as well as Article 9(3) GDPR;
(4) for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89(1) of the GDPR, in so far as the law referred to in subparagraph a) is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing, or
(5) for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
1.7.5. Right to be informed
If you have exercised your right to obtain from the controller the rectification, erasure or restriction of processing, it is obliged to notify all recipients to whom your personal data have been disclosed about the rectification or erasure of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves to be impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.
You have the right to be informed by the controller about these recipients.
1.7.6. Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to the controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data have been provided, provided that
(1) the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) GDPR or point (a) of Article 9(2) GDPR or is based on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1) GDPR; and
(2) the processing is carried out by automated means.
In exercising this right you also have the right to have the personal data concerning you transmitted directly from one controller to another, provided that this is technically feasible. These rights should not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in exercising official authority vested in the controller.
1.7.7. Right to object
You have the right at any time, for reasons that arise from your particular situation, to object to the processing of personal data concerning you which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions. The controller will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If the personal data concerning you is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.
If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.
In the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you may exercise your right to object by automated means using technical specifications.
1.7.8. Right to revoke your declaration of consent concerning data privacy
If the processing of your personal data is based on your consent, you may revoke your consent to processing at any time with future effect. The relevant data will then be blocked or erased immediately in accordance with legal storage periods.
The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.
You can carry out your revocation in the same way as your consent. Alternatively you can send your revocation of consent, stating your full name and email address, to the following postal or email address:
Feld M GmbH
– Datenschutz –
Tel +49 (0) 89 / 60807600
1.7.9. Exclusion right in automated decisions on a case-by-case basis, including profiling
You have the right not to be subjected to a decision based solely on automated processing – including profiling – that will have legal effect or similarly affect you in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision
(1) is required for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the controller,
(2) is permitted by Union or Member State legislation to which the controller is subject, and where such legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or
(3) is made with your express consent.
However, these decisions must not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Article 9(1) GDPR, unless point (a) or (g) of Article 9(2) GDPR applies and reasonable measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.
With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the controller shall implement suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.
1.7.10. Right to complain to a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, place of work or place of alleged infringement, if you believe that the processing of the personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR.
The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been submitted shall inform the complainant of the status and results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy in accordance with Article 78 of the GDPR.

2. Provision of the website and creation of log files
2.1. Description and scope of the data processing
Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer.
The following data is collected in this regard:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the computer accessing the site
- Time of the server request
- IP address
- Device type
This data will not be merged with other data sources.
The data is also stored in our system’s log files. This data is not stored together with the user’s other personal data.
2.2. Purpose of the data processing
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. To achieve this, the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session.
Data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data is used to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.
2.3. Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Article 6(1) point (f) GDPR. The legitimate interest of the website operator lies in the trouble-free provision of the website and the associated website services for users.
2.4. Duration of storage
The data will be erased as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of its collection. In the case of collecting the data for providing the website, this is the case when the respective session is completed.
The data is erased after 14 days. The service provider uses script-based deletion.
2.5. Means of objection and termination
The collection of data for providing the website and the storage of data in log files is absolutely imperative for operating the website. Users therefore do not have any possibility to object.
The data subject can prevent our website from setting cookies at any time by accordingly adjusting the settings on the Internet browser used and thus permanently disabling the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time using an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all standard Internet browsers. However, not all the functions on our website may be fully usable if the data subject disables the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used.
3.1. Use of retargeting and remarketing technologies
We deploy technologies on our websites for so-called retargeting and remarketing. This is an online marketing tracking process in which visitors to a website are tagged and subsequently matched on other websites with targeted advertising. We use this new technology to make our offering even more attractive and to inform and remind you about current offers which you have already viewed in our online shop. The following retargeting or remarketing technologies are used:
– Google DoubleClick remarketing pixels
– Google Ads remarketing
– Google Ads conversion tracking
Technically, depending on the retargeting service, either an additional cookie is stored on your computer or cookies already set in your browser are used to identify you or your computer or browser as an internet user via the so-called cookie ID, usually anonymously, and to log your surfing behaviour, in particular which of our web pages you have accessed. The cookie can then be read and evaluated by the targeting providers with whom we cooperate (see below). As a result, you may also see advertisements for our products or recommendations for comparable third-party products on other websites, for example displayed as personalised banner ads.
For DoubleClick remarketing pixels, web bugs perform a similar function to cookies. Web bugs send your IP address, the Internet address (URL), the time the web bug was viewed, your browser type and previously set cookie information to a web server.
The data collected about your browsing behaviour through cookies or web bugs cannot be used to personally identify you as a visitor to our websites. We use the data only to improve our offering and to evaluate the user behaviour on our websites (e.g. responses to advertising promotions); there is no other use or disclosure to third parties. This information is anonymous and not associated with personal data on your computer or database.
3.1.1. Google DoubleClick remarketing pixels and Google Ads remarketing or similar audiences features
Description and scope of the data processing
On our websites, we use the DoubleClick remarketing pixels and Google Ads remarketing or similar audiences features, both services from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (“Google”). With the help of these services we can provide you with advertising messages relating to our online shop, e.g. interesting product offers, on the websites of other providers who also use these Google services (“partners” in the Google Display Network). In addition, we can use Google Ads remarketing to remind you on the websites of other providers in the Google Display Network to complete your order if you have recently placed an order in our online store. This is done using the cookie technology.
To do this Google stores a small file with a sequence of numbers (so-called cookie ID) in your browser to remember you as a visitor to our website and to collect further anonymous data about the use of our websites. The cookie ID is stored by us and is used only for clearly identifying your browser and not for identifying you as a person. Personal data about you will not be collected or stored through these services.
Purpose of the data processing
The purpose is to process and optimise information derived from marketing campaigns to further address the target group for Datacroft products.
Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the remarketing measures is Article 6(1) point (f) GDPR. The legitimate interest of the website operator lies in specifically addressing a very small, specific target group from the business sector who has already shown interest in the services offered by Datacroft.
Duration of storage
The storage period is 26 months.
Means of objection and termination
3.1.2. Google Ads conversion tracking
Description and scope of the data processing
Google Ads is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to place ads in both Google’s search engine results and the Google Advertising Network. Google Ads allows an advertiser to pre-define specific keywords that will only display an ad in Google’s search engine results when the user uses the search engine to retrieve a keyword-relevant search result. In the Google Network, ads are distributed to thematically relevant web pages using an automated algorithm and according to pre-defined keywords.
The operator for the Google AdWords service is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
If a data subject arrives on our website via a Google ad, a so-called conversion cookie will be stored by Google on the data subject’s information technology system. An explanation of what cookies are has already been provided above. Conversion cookies expire after thirty days and are not used to identify the data subject. If the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie is used to track whether certain sub-pages, such as the contact form, have been accessed on our website. The conversion cookie tells both us and Google whether a data subject who came to our website via a Google ad has submitted a request.
The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie are used by Google to collate visitor statistics for our website. These visitor statistics are then used by us to determine the total number of users who have been referred to us through Google ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of each Google ad in order to optimise our Google ads for the future. Neither our company nor other Google Ads advertisers will receive information from Google that could identify the data subject.
The conversion cookie stores personal information, such as the web pages visited by the data subject. Each time our website is visited, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may transfer such personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.
Purpose of the data processing
The purpose of Google Ads is to promote our website by displaying interest-based advertising on the websites of third-party companies and in the search engine results of the Google search engine.
Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the measures is Article 6(1) point (f) GDPR. The justified interest of the website operator lies in addressing, as specifically as possible, a small, specialist target group from the business sector who have already shown interest in Datacroft’s offerings.
Duration of storage
The storage period is 26 months.
Means of objection and termination
As described above, you can prevent our website from setting cookies at any time by correspondingly adjusting the settings on the Internet browser used and thus permanently disabling the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment of the Internet browser settings would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie on your information technology system. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Ads can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
In addition, you can opt out of Google’s interest-based advertising. To do this you must access the link www.google.com/settings/ads from each of the Internet browsers you use and make the desired settings there.
4. Web analysis by Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)
4.1. Description and scope of the data processing
Google Analytics (with an anonymisation function) is integrated on our website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis refers to the capturing, collection and analysis of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data about the website from which a data subject came to our website (so-called referrers), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often, and for how long the subpage was viewed. We use web analytics primarily for optimising our website and for conducting cost-benefit analyses of the internet advertising.
The operator for the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The controller uses the application “_gat._anonymizeIp” for web analytics through Google Analytics. 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 website from a Member State of the European Union or from another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Google Analytics sets a cookie on the data subject’s information technology system. An explanation of what cookies are has already been provided above. Setting this cookie enables Google to analyse the usage of our website. Each time one of the webpages is accessed on this website, which is operated by the controller and in which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data subject’s information technology system is automatically initiated by the respective Google Analytics component to submit data to Google for online analysis purposes. As part of this technical process, Google is provided with personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which among other things help Google to track the origin of the visitors and clicks, and subsequently enable the settlement of commissions.
The cookie stores personal information, such as the access time, the location from where the access was made, and the frequency with which our website is visited by the data subject. Each time you visit our website, your personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may transfer such personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.
4.2. Purpose of the data processing
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse visitor flows on our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, to compile for us online reports showing the activities on our websites, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.
4.3. Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the web analysis by Google Analytics is Article 6(1) point (f) GDPR. The legitimate interest of the website operator lies in tracking user interests through their use of our website. With the help of the data we would like to constantly optimise our website and our marketing measures, and make them more relevant for our users.
4.4. Duration of storage
The storage period is 26 months.
4.5. Means of objection and termination
As described above, the data subject can prevent our website from setting cookies at any time by accordingly adjusting the settings on the Internet browser used and thus permanently disabling the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment of the Internet browser settings would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the data subject’s information technology system. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
Furthermore, you can prevent Google from logging the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address), as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).
As an alternative to installing the browser plugin, especially on Internet browsers on mobile devices, you can prevent your data from being collected by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link:
This stores a so-called opt-out cookie on your device which prevents the future collection of your data by Google Analytics when visiting this website.
Please note that if you delete cookies in your browser settings, the opt-out cookie from Google Analytics could also be deleted, which would then have to be re-enabled by you.
5. Web analysis by Amplitude
5.1. Description and scope of the data processing

The controller applies Amplitude’s services by using “cookies”. Cookies are text files which are saved on your device, and which enable usage analysis of our websites and services. The cookies’ collated information regarding the usage of our website and services is transmitted and stored on an Amplitude server in the USA. We have activated IP-anonymizing on our websites and services. Therefore, your IP address is truncated beforehand.
We have tasked Amplitude with analysing the net usage data of our websites and services using web analytics, in order to generate reports about user’s activity on our website, and to give us additional information regarding the usage of our website, as well as the internet usage of related services. To reach that purpose Amplitude processes information obtained with the cookies set, that is especially the truncated IP address, a device ID, a randomly generated user ID as well as the data mentioned in the banner.
Amplitude therefore provides us with insights and statistics that help us to make our online presence, our communication and ultimately our services more interesting and relevant.
The user data processed through cookies is not used to create user profiles.
5.2. Purpose of the data processing
The use of Amplitude primarily serves the purpose of the improvement of security, quality, and content on our website. However, Amplitude may also be used to optimise advertising, and marketing measures and to improve customer services.
5.3. Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the processing of your data by using Amplitude is your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR).
5.4. Duration of storage
We will retain your consent for a period of six months. You may revoke your consent at any time without cause time by changing the applicable settings in your browser under User Settings. Conversely, you can deactivate your settings made via our banner – either by switching off the relevant cookies, or the use of tracking tools, by moving the slider under the tab “Marketing”.
Additional information regarding Amplitude’s operating procedures can be found here.
6. Contact form
6.1. Description and scope of the data processing
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored in order to process the enquiry and in case of follow-up questions.

The data is required to send you the associated documents in a personalised way.
The information you provide in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (for example, after your enquiry has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – especially retention periods – remain unaffected.
6.2. Purpose of the data processing
The personal data from the input mask is processed for the sole purpose of dealing with your enquiries. In the case of contact by email, we have a legitimate interest in processing the data since we as a company always strive to deal with your inquiries.
The other personal data processed during the sending process are used to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.
6.3. Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for processing the data when contacting us via the contact form for requesting further details about the Link Manager or TV2WEB offerings is the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures pursuant to Article 6(1) point (b) GDPR.
6.4. Duration of storage
The data will be erased as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of its collection. For personal data entered in the input mask in the contact form and personal data sent by email, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is ended when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the relevant facts have been finally clarified.
The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be erased at the latest after a period of 14 days.
6.5. Means of objection and termination
