Data Privacy Statement According to GDPR as of 2022
Trust and reliability are of particular importance for our users. For us, this also includes the protection of personal data, which is one of our primary company principles. We therefore process personal data on our website strictly in accordance with the applicable legal provisions and, in particular, in accordance with the requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter: GDPR), applicable throughout Europe. We would like to inform you in the following about the processing of personal data carried out by us in accordance with this regulation (see Article 13 of the GDPR). Please read our data privacy statement carefully.
The following data protection information provides information on the type and scope of the processing of what is known as personal data. Personal data is information that is or can be directly or indirectly attributable to your person.
What is Personal Data?
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “data subject”). This includes information such as your name, address, IP address or email address. Information that is not directly associated with your real identity (such as favourite websites or the number of users of a site) is not included.
What is Anonymised Data?
Each time you access the content of our website, general information is automatically stored (e.g. number and duration of users of individual sites, etc.). This information is not personal because it does not relate to an identified or identifiable individual, i.e. there is no way we can associate the information with any particular individual. The data is therefore processed in an anonymised form. Information of this kind is gathered for purely statistical purposes, and is used by us for the optimisation of our Internet services.
The data processing via our services can essentially be divided into two categories:
- All necessary data will be processed by bestforexbonuses.org for the purpose of providing our services, in particular for the operation of our platform. In this way, we can ensure that we offer our visitors the best possible service. If third parties, e.g. partner sites, providers of online trading, subcontractors, etc. are involved in the provision, your data will be passed on to them to the extent necessary in each individual case.
- When the website is accessed, various pieces of information are exchanged between your device and our server. This may also involve personal data. The information collected in this way is used, among other things, to optimise our website or to display advertising in the browser of your device.
In accordance with the requirements of the GDPR, you have various rights which you are able to assert. This includes, among other things, the right to object to selected data processing, in particular data processing for advertising purposes. The ability to object is emphasised in the printing process. Should you have any questions regarding our data protection information, please feel free to contact us at any time. You will find our contact details below.
As a matter of principle, we process personal data only in accordance with the applicable statutory storage and safekeeping obligations or until the respective purpose ceases to apply, or if the processing is no longer required.
Purposes of Data Processing
When you access our website, the browser used on your device automatically sends information to our website’s server and temporarily stores it in what is known as a log file. We have no influence with respect to this. The following information is gathered without any action on your part and stored until it is automatically deleted:
- the IP address of the requesting Internet-enabled device,
- date and time of access,
- the website from which access was made (referrer URL),
- your own campaign ID,
- the browser you are using and, if applicable, the operating system of your internet-enabled computer, as well as the name of your access provider.
The legal basis for the processing of your IP address is Article 6, Paragraph 1, lit. f of the GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the purposes of data collection listed below. At this point we would like to point out that we cannot deduce your identity from the data collected and that we do not draw any conclusions about your identity.
The IP address of your device and the other data listed above are used by us for the following purposes:
- Ensuring a smooth connection setup,
- Ensuring our website is convenient to use,
- Evaluating the system’s security and stability, as well as
- further administrative purposes.
Cookies – General Information
When you visit our website, we use what are known as session cookies to identify that you have already visited individual pages on our website. These are deleted automatically after you leave our site. Most browsers automatically accept cookies. You can, however, configure your browser in such a way that cookies are not stored on your computer, or that a notification appears each time before a new cookie is set. The complete deactivation of cookies can, however, result in reduced functionality of our website, and you may not be able to use all functions on our website. How long cookies are stored for depends on their purpose, and is not the same for everyone.
Storage Duration and Deletion of Data
Your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies, or you revoke your consent. In addition, storage can take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator under EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject. If the storage purpose no longer applies, you revoke your consent, or a storage period prescribed by the European regulator or another responsible legislator expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted routinely and in accordance with the statutory provisions, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion of a contract or fulfilment of a contract.
All data transmitted by you personally, including payment data, is done so using the generally accepted and secure standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer). SSL is a secure and proven standard, which is also used for online banking, for example. You can identify a secure SSL connection, among other things, by the additional “s” on the http (https://…) in the address bar of your browser, or by the lock symbol at the bottom of your browser.
We also use suitable technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data stored by us against manipulation, partial or complete loss and against unauthorised access by third parties.
