To ensure the needs-based configuration and continuous optimization of our websites, on the basis of Section Subsection 1 (f) of the GDPR (legitimate interest) we use Google Analytics—a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. of 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, hereinafter referred to as Google.This creates pseudonymized usage profiles and uses a specific form of cookies.The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, which provides a guarantee to comply with the EU data protection standard.
We draw your attention to the fact that Google Analytics is used only with activated IP anonymization, ‘_anonymizeIp()’, on our websites.This means that the IP address of users is truncated by Google within the territory of the European Union and in other members states that are party to the agreement on the European Economic Area in order to exclude any direct personal referability.The complete IP address will only be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and truncated there in exceptional cases.
Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online platform by our users, to compile reports on the activities within this online platform and to provide us with further services associated with the use of this online platform and of the Internet.Pseudonymous usage profiles of the users can be created from the data processed.
Google Analytics is not combined with any other Google data.If you, the user, would like to prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and relating to use of the website (incl. your IP address) by Google and the processing of this data by Google, you can do this by downloading and installing the add-on for disabling Google Analytics.138889 138890The browser add-on is available for Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari and Opera at: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl

Google Data Studio

This web tool does not require a local application and can be started via the web.Access is via a browser and the data sources are directly connected via Google Data Studio.

Integration of services and contents of third parties
We are an agile company, so it is extremely important to us to be present and attainable wherever our customers are.On the basis of Section Subsection 1 (f) of the GDPR (legitimate interest), social plug-ins and links of social networks (Facebook, LinkedIn, XING, Google+, YouTube) are therefore integrated elements on our websites.The underlying promotional purpose can be considered as a legitimate interest within the meaning of the GDPR.The responsibility for operation in compliance with data protection must be ensured by the respective providers of the social networks.
In addition, on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e.our interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online platform within the meaning of SectionSubsection 1 (f) of the GDPR) or on the basis of your consent within the meaning of Section Subsection 1 (a) of the GDPR, we use service platforms of third-party providers to integrate their contents and services into our online platform.
Before a connection to the provider can be made, you must expressly declare yourself in agreement with the process described below and with the data transmission:
You will recognize links to the Internet pages of the social media services by the respective corporate logo.If you follow a social link, you will reach the corporate online presence of BlackForxx on the respective social media service site. Please take into consideration that activating a link results in a connection being made to the servers of the social media service and consequently certain data may be transferred to the provider of the social media service. Such data is, for example:
• your name and e-mail address for authentication in the course of registration and the login process;
• the address of the website at which the activated link is located;
• the date and time when the website was accessed or when the link was activated;
• information about the browser used and the operating system used;
• the IP address of the enquiring Internet-enabled terminal device.

BlackForxx GmbH has no influence on the scope, nature or purpose of the data processing performed by the provider of the respective social media service. We have provided you below with detailed information about the social media channels used by us:

Furthermore, through integration of the plug-ins, Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the online platform.If the user is logged in on Facebook, Facebook can associate the visit with his Facebook account.If users interact with the plug-ins (e.g. by clicking the Like button or by submitting a comment), the corresponding information is transmitted by your device directly to Facebook and stored there.If a user is not a member of Facebook, the possibility BlackForxx exists that Facebook will recognize and store her/his IP address.According to information provided by Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is stored in Germany.
If a user is already a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about her/him via this online platform and links that data with her/his member data stored by Facebook, she/he must log out of Facebook and delete her/his cookies before using our online platform.Additional settings for using data for promotional purposes are available in the Facebook profile settings at: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads.

As soon as you activate the plug-in by making the first click, your browser connects directly to Google's servers.The content of the plug-in is transmitted by Google directly to your browser and is integrated into the page.Through this integration, Google obtains the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a profile on Google+ or are currently not logged in to Google+.This information, including your IP address, is transmitted by your browser directly to a Google server in the USA and stored there.If you are logged in to Google+, Google can instantly associate your visit to our website with your Google+ profile.If you interact with the plug-ins, for example, by pressing the ‘+1’ button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Google server and stored there.In addition, this information is published on Google+ and displayed there in your contacts.

Group data protection officer
KION GROUP AG
Frankfurt am Main
BlackForxx GmbH continuously applies appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data as comprehensively as possible against manipulation, partial or complete loss and unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continually being improved in line with technological development.
In addition to securing the operating environment, we use, for example, an encryption procedure on our entire web platform. All data personally transmitted by you, including your payment data, is transferred by means of the generally used and secure standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocol to prevent misuse of the data by third parties. SSL is a secure and proven standard that is also used in online banking. You can recognize a secure SSL connection, among other things, by the locked padlock symbol on the status bar of your browser and if the address line contains ‘https’.
Nevertheless, we draw your attention to the fact that Internet-based data transfers fundamentally have security vulnerabilities (e.g. when communicating by e-mail), so that absolute protection of the data against access by third parties cannot be guaranteed.
