(hereinafter “Provider”) on this website (hereinafter “Offer”).

The legal foundations of data protection can be found in Germany’s Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG)), Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz (TMG)) and DSGVO/GDPR (May 25th, 2018).  

Access data / Server log files
Provider (or its Webspace provider) collects data about every access to Offer (in server log files). The access data include: Name of the website accessed, file, date and time of the data retrieval, data volume transferred, notification of the retrieval, browser type and version, user’s operating system, referrer URL (the site visited previously), IP address and requesting provider.

Provider only uses the protocol data for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operating, optimizing and the security of Offer.    

Use of personal data
Personal data is information with the aid of which a person’s identity can be determined, i.e. personal details that can be traced back to a person. These include, for instance, the name, e-mail address or telephone number, but also data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or the websites a person visits.

Provider only gathers, uses and passes on personal data if this is permissible by law or the user consents to the collection of the data.  

Contacting
When contacting Provider (for example using a contact form or e-mail), the user’s information is stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case further inquiries follow.  

Newsletter
With the newsletter we inform you about us and our offerings. If you wish to receive the newsletter, we require a valid e-mail address from you as well as information that enable us to confirm that you are the owner of the stated e-mail address, or that its owner consents to receiving the newsletter. These data are only used for sending the newsletter and are not passed on to third parties.  

We record the registration for the newsletter electronically, storing in particular the date of the registration. This storing of data also serves as proof in the event that a third party misuses the e-mail address and registers to receive the newsletter without the knowledge of the authorized person or owner.  

You can revoke your consent to the storing of the data and e-mail address and their use for the sending of the newsletter, using the link in the newsletter itself, in your profile or by notifying us.

Terms and Conditions of Use for DXBe access service

Social plugins
DXBe uses so-called social plugins ('buttons') of social networks such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Twitter, Heap, Google Tag Manager, Poptin, Connecto, GetSiteControl, Drift and Hotjar.

When you visit our websites these buttons are deactivated by default, i.e. without your intervention they will not send any data to the respective social networks. Before you are able to use these buttons, you must activate them by clicking on them. They then remain active until you deactivate them again or delete your cookies (please refer to 'Cookies').

After their activation, a direct link to the server of the respective social network is established. The contents of the button are then transmitted from the social network directly to your browser and incorporated in the website by it.

After activation of a button, the social network can retrieve data, independently of whether you interact with the button or not. If you are logged on to a social network, the network can assign your visit to the website to your user account. A social network cannot assign a visit to other DXBe website unless and until you activate the respective button there as well.

If you are a member of a social network and do not wish it to combine data retrieved from your visit to our websites with your membership data, you must log out from the social network concerned before activating the buttons.

We have no influence on the scope of data that is collected by the social networks through their buttons. The data use policies of the social networks provide information on the purpose and extent of the data that they collect, how this data is processed and used, the rights available to you and the settings that you can use to protect your privacy.
