3.1 Calling up our website/application

When you access our website/application, the browser used on your end device automatically sends information to the server of our website/application and temporarily stores it in a so-called log file. In addition, data is automatically processed by our provider. We have no influence on this.

You can find detailed information on this here:

3.2 Online presence and website optimisation

3.2.1 Cookies – general information

We use so-called cookies on our website on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) DSGVO. Our interest in optimising our website is to be regarded as legitimate in the sense of the aforementioned provision. Cookies are small files that are automatically created by your browser and stored on your end device (laptop, tablet, smartphone or similar) when you visit our site. Cookies do not cause any damage to your end device and do not contain any viruses, Trojans or other malware. Information is stored in the cookie that is related to the specific end device used. However, this does not mean that we gain direct knowledge of your identity. The use of cookies serves, on the one hand, to make the use of our offer more pleasant for you. For example, we use so-called session cookies to recognise that you have already visited individual pages of our website or that you have already logged into your customer account. These are automatically deleted after you leave our site. Furthermore, we also use temporary cookies for the purpose of user-friendliness, which are stored on your end device for a certain fixed period of time. If you visit our site again to use our services, it is automatically recognised that you have already been with us and which entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.

3.2.2 Web fonts

We use Google Fonts on our website or integrate them on the server side. There is a link to Google Inc. for retrieving the fonts. A connection to Google Inc. in the USA is established. This procedure involves sending the IP address and information about previously visited websites. You can find Google’s data protection declaration on the following page:

The basis for the use of web fonts via Google is the legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO).

3.3 Option to object/opt out

You can prevent the targeting technologies explained by making the appropriate cookie setting in your browser. In addition, you have the option of deactivating preference-based advertising with the help of the preference manager [] available here.

3.4 Contact form

We carry out the following data processing: Contacting us via a contact form.

You are welcome to contact us via our contact form. The user thus declares his consent to the collection and storage of the data entered in each case. Apart from the data expressly entered, no further data is collected – without the user’s knowledge. The data collection is handled by the provider of the website (webgo GmbH, Heidenkampsweg 81, 20097 Hamburg). From there, the data is forwarded directly to the server and stored without intermediate storage. The data collection takes place within the legal framework for the following purpose: answering enquiries. The storage period depends on the purpose of the collection: the contact data is stored for a long period if a contractual relationship subsequently arises between deep forward and the contactor. Otherwise, enquiries will be deleted after 14 days at the latest. If you send us an e-mail, your e-mail address will only be used for correspondence with you. It will not be used for any other purpose or passed on to third parties. Your personal data collected herewith will not be passed on except due to possible legal obligation and will not be used for any other purposes than those mentioned above.

You can revoke your consent at any time until the data is deleted and we will then delete your data as soon as possible.

The basis for the data processing is as follows: Article 6(1)(a) DSGVO

4. Recipients outside the EU

We do not pass on data to recipients based outside the European Union or the European Economic Area. The processing mentioned under 3.2 results in a data transfer to the servers of the providers of tracking or targeting technologies commissioned by us. These servers are located in the USA. The data transfer takes place in accordance with the principles of the so-called Privacy Shield [] and on the basis of so-called standard contractual clauses [] of the EU Commission.      

5. Your rights

5.1 Overview

In addition to the right to revoke the consent you have given to us, you have the following further rights if the respective legal requirements are met:

  • Right to information about your personal data stored by us pursuant to Art. 15 DSGVO; in particular, you can obtain information about the processing purposes, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data have been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the origin of your data, unless it has been collected directly from you,
  • The right to have inaccurate data corrected or to have correct data completed in accordance with Art. 16 DSGVO,
  • Right to have your data stored by us deleted in accordance with Art. 17 DSGVO insofar as no legal or contractual retention periods or other legal obligations or rights to further storage are to be observed,
  • Right to restrict the processing of your data pursuant to Art. 18 DSGVO, insofar as the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, the processing is unlawful, but you object to its erasure; the controller no longer requires the data, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO,
  • Right to data portability pursuant to Art. 20 DSGVO, i.e. the right to have data we have stored about you transferred in a common, machine-readable format or to request that it be transferred to another controller,
  • the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. As a rule, you can contact the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence or workplace or our company headquarters for this purpose.

5.2 Right of objection

Under the conditions of Art. 21 (1) DSGVO, data processing may be objected to for reasons arising from the particular situation of the data subject.

The above general right to object applies to all processing purposes described in this privacy notice that are processed on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) DSGVO. Unlike the specific right of objection directed at data processing for advertising purposes, we are only obliged under the GDPR to implement such a general objection if you provide us with reasons of overriding importance for doing so (e.g. a possible risk to life or health). In addition, you have the option of contacting the supervisory authority responsible for deep forward.

6. Data security

All data transmitted by you personally, including your payment data, are transmitted using the generally accepted and secure standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer). SSL is a secure and proven standard that is also used, for example, for online banking. You can recognise a secure SSL connection by the s appended to the http (i.e. https://…) in the address bar of your browser or by the lock symbol in the lower area of your browser.

We also use appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data stored with us against manipulation, partial or complete loss and against unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in accordance with technological developments.

7. Profiling and automated decision making

We do not use automated decision making (also called profiling).
