Privacy Policy

Privacy policy

Pla­net of Love hand­les per­so­nal data respon­si­b­ly. We want our visi­tors to know what data is collec­ted and used by us and when. We have taken tech­ni­cal and orga­niz­a­tio­nal mea­su­res to ensu­re that every visi­tor is affor­ded the grea­test pos­si­ble degree of privacy.

This pri­va­cy poli­cy informs you about the natu­re, scope and pur­po­se of the collec­tion and use of per­so­nal data by the web­site ope­ra­tor. The fol­lowing notes pro­vi­de an over­view of what hap­pens to your per­so­nal data when you visit our website.

Responsible

The data pro­ces­sing on this web­site is car­ri­ed out by the web­site ope­ra­tor. His con­ta­ct details can be found in the legal noti­ce.

The con­tent of this web­site is loca­ted on the ser­vers of an exter­nal web hos­ter. The web hos­ter pro­ces­ses per­so­nal data collec­ted through our web­site only to the extent necessa­ry to ful­fill its ser­vice obli­ga­ti­ons and fol­lows our inst­ruc­tions regar­ding this data. In order to ensu­re data pro­tec­tion-com­pli­ant pro­ces­sing, a con­tract on com­mis­sio­ned pro­ces­sing has been con­clu­ded with the web hoster.

Collection and processing of personal data

Per­so­nal data are all data with which a user can be per­so­nal­ly iden­ti­fied. This can be con­ta­ct data (e.g. name, address, e‑mail address, tele­pho­ne num­ber), usa­ge data (e.g. IP address), meta and com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on data as well as other data, pro­vi­ded that the­se allow a con­clu­si­on to be drawn about the iden­ti­ty of the user. This does not inclu­de data that can­not be lin­ked to the iden­ti­ty of the user.

The use of our web­site is gene­ral­ly pos­si­ble without dis­clo­sing per­so­nal data. No per­so­nal data is collec­ted and pro­ces­sed by the web­site ope­ra­tor unless this is requi­red by law or the user has express­ly con­sen­ted to it.

a) What data is collected?

Part of the data is collec­ted to ensu­re error-free pro­vi­si­on of the web­site. Other data is collec­ted on the one hand by you pro­vi­ding it to us. This may be data that you enter in a con­ta­ct form.

Data is also collec­ted for secu­ri­ty rea­sons. This data is collec­ted auto­ma­ti­cal­ly and anony­mous­ly as soon as you visit our web­site. Only the data that your brow­ser trans­mits to our ser­ver is log­ged and stored. By anony­mi­zing this data, it is not pos­si­ble to draw con­clu­si­ons about your person.

The fol­lowing data is collected:

  • IP address (anony­mi­zed)
  • Date and time
  • Visi­ted website
  • brow­ser used
  • Ope­ra­ting sys­tem used
  • Amount of data sent
  • access dura­ti­on

On the ser­ver side, this data is stored for 10 days and then auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted. The data is stored for secu­ri­ty rea­sons, e.g. to be able to cla­ri­fy legal vio­la­ti­ons or cases of abuse.

If this data must be retai­ned for evi­den­tia­ry rea­sons, it will remain exempt from dele­ti­on until the inci­dent has been con­clu­si­ve­ly cla­ri­fied. This data will not be used for any other purpose.

Various secu­ri­ty tools are also used to pro­tect our web­site. The tools we use store IP addres­ses in anony­mi­zed form. The log­ged data has no per­so­nal refe­rence and is auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted after 10 days.

b) Personal data

When collec­ting and pro­ces­sing per­so­nal data based on your con­sent (e.g. pro­vi­ding an e‑mail address in the con­ta­ct form), this data is stored until you revo­ke your consent.

Unless other­wi­se sta­ted in this pri­va­cy poli­cy, per­so­nal data will be dele­ted when it is no lon­ger necessa­ry for the pur­po­ses for which it was collec­ted or other­wi­se processed.

c) Passing on data to third parties

No data will be pas­sed on to third par­ties by the web­site ope­ra­tor unless the­re is a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in doing so (e.g. by law enfor­ce­ment agencies).

Security through SSL encryption

Our web­site uses SSL encryp­ti­on. The SSL pro­to­col secu­res the trans­mis­si­on bet­ween a domain on a web ser­ver and the visi­tor of this domain.

SSL encryp­ti­on means that data trans­mit­ted to our web­site can­not be read by third par­ties. An encryp­ted con­nec­tion can be reco­gni­zed by the fact that a lock sym­bol appears in the browser’s address bar and the address bar begins with „htt­ps:”.

Installed fonts

Our web­site only uses fonts that are instal­led local­ly on our ser­ver. The­re is no con­nec­tion to third-par­ty servers.

Use of cookies

Coo­kies are small text files that are sent to a ter­mi­nal device (com­pu­ter, lap­top, smart­pho­ne, etc.) and stored in the brow­ser as soon as a web­site is acces­sed. The next time the web­site is visi­ted, it can reco­gni­ze the brow­ser based on the coo­kie. Whe­ther or not you allow coo­kies to be set in your brow­ser depends on what is important to you per­so­nal­ly and how you main­ly use the Internet.

a) General information about cookies

Coo­kies save lan­guage set­tings, form data or the con­tents of a shop­ping cart and can thus incre­a­se the user-friend­li­ness and secu­ri­ty of a web­site. The use of coo­kies enab­les the ope­ra­tor to opti­mi­ze its web­site, as the user’s selec­tions or pre­fe­ren­ces are avail­ab­le again on the next visit. Some func­tions of a web­site may not work pro­per­ly without cookies.

Coo­kies do not con­tain exe­cu­ta­ble code and the­re­fo­re do not initi­al­ly pose a secu­ri­ty risk. Howe­ver, coo­kies can also be used to record a visitor’s user beha­vi­or (tracking cookies).

Coo­kies are mana­ged by the brow­ser. The set­tings in the brow­ser deter­mi­ne whe­ther a coo­kie may be set and how long it may be stored. Howe­ver, cor­re­spon­ding infor­ma­ti­on can also be stored on the ser­ver, for examp­le, to gene­ra­te sta­tis­tics about the num­ber of times web pages are cal­led up.

Coo­kies are not bad or harm­ful per se, but a pro­ven means for web­site opti­miz­a­ti­on. Nevertheless, coo­kies can pose a secu­ri­ty risk if misus­ed. In par­ti­cu­lar, so-cal­led „tracking coo­kies” can com­pro­mi­se pri­va­cy and are ques­tion­ab­le from a data pro­tec­tion per­spec­ti­ve. Tracking coo­kies are used by some pro­vi­ders to moni­tor a user’s sur­fing beha­vi­or over a lon­ger peri­od of time and across pages.

Depen­ding on their life­time, a dis­tinc­tion is made bet­ween ses­si­on coo­kies and per­sis­tent coo­kies. Ses­si­on coo­kies are crea­ted for the dura­ti­on of a ses­si­on and are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted again as soon as the ses­si­on ends or the brow­ser is clo­sed. Ses­si­on coo­kies ful­fill basic func­tions and are indis­pensable in most cases to ensu­re the error-free ope­ra­ti­on of a web­site. Ses­si­on coo­kies are gene­ral­ly harm­less from a data pro­tec­tion point of view, as no per­so­nal refe­rence is estab­lis­hed through the­se cookies.

Per­sis­tent coo­kies extend the func­tio­n­a­li­ty or impro­ve the usa­bi­li­ty of a web­site. Per­sis­tent coo­kies are stored until the „life­time” spe­ci­fied by the web­site ope­ra­tor is reached or remain per­ma­nent­ly – at least until they are manu­al­ly dele­ted by the user.

Depen­ding on whe­ther coo­kies are set by the web­site ope­ra­tor its­elf or by a third par­ty, a dis­tinc­tion is made bet­ween first-par­ty coo­kies (coo­kies set by the web­site ope­ra­tor) and third-par­ty coo­kies (coo­kies set by a third par­ty). Coo­kies that are set by a third par­ty do not ori­gi­na­te from the web­site itself.

b) Cookies of the website operator

As a mat­ter of princip­le, the web­site ope­ra­tor does not use coo­kies that collect per­so­nal data or eva­lua­te the user’s behavior.

Ses­si­on coo­kies are used on our web­site. Ses­si­on coo­kies are first-par­ty coo­kies and do not requi­re con­sent. The sole pur­po­se of the­se coo­kies is to enab­le the func­tion and dis­play of our website.

Con­tent from You­Tube is inte­gra­ted on our web­site (see: third-par­ty coo­kies).). In order for this con­tent to be dis­play­ed in a user-friend­ly man­ner and in com­pli­an­ce with data pro­tec­tion laws, your con­sent is obtai­ned befo­re the first call. For this pur­po­se, we set a so-cal­led con­sent coo­kie. This has the func­tion of per­ma­nent­ly sto­ring your set­ting, so that the next time you visit our web­site, your con­sent does not have to be obtai­ned again.

The coo­kie has a lifespan of 30 days and is then auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted. Without your con­sent, the func­tio­n­a­li­ty remains limi­ted in that con­tent from You­Tube is not dis­play­ed on our website.

If this func­tion is no lon­ger requi­red or if the coo­kie is to be dele­ted from your brow­ser pre­ma­tu­re­ly, you can make this set­ting below.

c) Third-party cookies

On our web­site, con­tent is embed­ded that is loca­ted on the ser­vers of You­Tube. You­Tube is a video por­tal that belongs to Goog­le. The ope­ra­tor is Goog­le Ire­land Limi­ted, Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dub­lin 4, Ireland.

Depen­ding on the set­tings in your brow­ser, You­Tube stores coo­kies on your ter­mi­nal device in order to reco­gni­ze you on your next visit. Play­ing this con­tent on our web­site is only pos­si­ble if you have given your con­sent (see: Coo­kies of the web­site ope­ra­tor).

You­Tube con­tent can­not be play­ed on our web­site without your con­sent. A con­nec­tion to You­Tube is only estab­lis­hed when the video is played.

d) Privacy policy

Accord­ing to their pri­va­cy poli­cy, Goog­le and thus also You­Tube use the collec­ted data pri­ma­ri­ly for the pro­vi­si­on and impro­ve­ment of their ser­vices. By „impro­ve­ment” is meant, abo­ve all, personalization.

By eva­lua­ting all avail­ab­le infor­ma­ti­on about its users, Goog­le can, on the one hand, pre­fe­ren­ti­al­ly dis­play con­tent of hig­her rele­van­ce and, on the other hand, offer tailo­red adver­ti­sing. Thus, data pro­tec­tion is to a cer­tain extent also oppo­sed to YouTube’s own busi­ness model.

If you are log­ged in to Goog­le when you visit our web­site, all data that is stored when you use You­Tube con­ver­ges in your Goog­le account. Sin­ce the video por­tal belongs to Goog­le, all pri­va­cy set­tings for You­Tube must be made in your Goog­le account. In the case of You­Tube, the acti­vi­ties on You­Tube are of par­ti­cu­lar impor­t­ance. For examp­le, what a user sear­ches for and which vide­os he or she wat­ches are recorded.

If you are log­ged in with your You­Tube account, it is pos­si­ble for You­Tube to assign your sur­fing beha­vi­or direct­ly to your per­so­nal pro­fi­le. You can pre­vent this by log­ging out of your You­Tube account beforehand.

Fur­ther­mo­re, You­Tube can save various coo­kies on your end device after you have view­ed a video or use com­pa­ra­ble reco­gni­ti­on tech­no­lo­gies. In this way, You­Tube can obtain infor­ma­ti­on about visi­tors to this website.

For more infor­ma­ti­on about YouTube’s pri­va­cy poli­cy, plea­se see their pri­va­cy poli­cy.

e) Deleting cookies

If you wish to remo­ve coo­kies from your brow­ser, you can do so in your browser’s coo­kie manage­ment set­tings. Plea­se note that each brow­ser dif­fers in how it mana­ges coo­kie settings.

With the fol­lowing set­ting, you can revo­ke your con­sent to the sto­rage of coo­kies by the web­site ope­ra­tor. The coo­kie set by the web­site ope­ra­tor will then be remo­ved from your brow­ser. Plea­se note that the con­tent of the media libra­ry will no lon­ger be available.

Contact form and e‑mail

If you send us inqui­ries via con­ta­ct form or e‑mail, your infor­ma­ti­on inclu­ding the resul­ting per­so­nal data will be stored and pro­ces­sed by us for the pur­po­se of pro­ces­sing your request. The pro­ces­sing of this data is based on your con­sent. This data will not be pas­sed on to third par­ties without your consent.

The data you pro­vi­de will remain with us until we are reques­ted by you to dele­te your data or you revo­ke your con­sent to sto­rage or the pur­po­se for sto­ring the data no lon­ger app­lies (e.g. after pro­ces­sing your request has been completed).

Comments

If you lea­ve a com­ment, it will be stored inclu­ding meta­da­ta for an unli­mi­ted peri­od of time. If you have writ­ten a com­ment, you can request the dele­ti­on of all per­so­nal data that we have stored about you. This does not inclu­de data that we need to keep due to admi­nis­tra­ti­ve, legal or secu­ri­ty needs.

Rights of the data subject

If you have given your con­sent to the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data, you can revo­ke this con­sent at any time for the future. You also have the right to obtain infor­ma­ti­on about what data has been stored about you, as well as the right to cor­rect, block or dele­te this data. To do this, you can con­ta­ct us via our con­ta­ct form or at the pos­tal address given in the legal noti­ce.

If dele­ti­on can­not be car­ri­ed out becau­se the data is requi­red for per­mis­si­ble legal pur­po­ses, data pro­ces­sing will be restric­ted. In this case, the data will be blo­cked and not pro­ces­sed for other purposes.

If you belie­ve that your data has been pro­ces­sed unlaw­ful­ly, you can file a com­p­laint with the com­pe­tent super­vi­so­ry authority.

Changes to the privacy policy

Due to the fur­ther deve­lo­p­ment of our web­site and adap­t­ati­on to newer tech­no­lo­gies, chan­ges to this pri­va­cy poli­cy may be necessa­ry. It is the­re­fo­re recom­men­ded that you read through this text at regu­lar intervals.
