Privacy Policy Axel Springer hy GmbH

Thank you for your interest in Axel Springer hy GmbH. In order to be able to offer Axel Springer hy GmbH, we naturally need some data about you. In doing so, we take the protection of personal data very seriously and always process it in accordance with the applicable data protection regulations, in particular the EU General Data Protection Regulation. With this privacy policy, we would like to fully inform you about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data we process and your rights as a data subject.

1. person responsible and general information
Your data will be processed by Axel Springer hy GmbH, Axel-Springer-Str. 65, 10888 Berlin, phone: +49(0)30259178150, e-mail: info@hy.co (service provider in the sense of the German Telemedia Act (TMG) and responsible party in the sense of the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). We also mean these when we use phrases such as „we“ or „us“. In this document, „Axel Springer hy GmbH“ means www.hy.co, in each case including all sub-pages, content and functions available there (e.g. Internet forums, competitions). Individual parts of Axel Springer hy GmbH are also referred to below as „online services“. We also mean these insofar as the following refers to a website.
Our services are intended for the general public and not for children. We do not knowingly collect personal data from users who are considered children under the relevant national legislation.

2. collection and processing of personal data
As a rule, you can use online services that do not require payment or registration without providing personal data. In certain cases, however, we process the personal data listed in section 3. As a matter of principle, this is done only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services. Furthermore, we process personal data in connection with the use of Axel Springer hy GmbH if you provide it of your own accord, e.g. as part of a registration, a competition, an inquiry to us, an application or when taking out a subscription, or because there is another legal basis for doing so (see section 4.). If you do not wish to do so, you will unfortunately not be able to use our services or not to the full extent.

3. categories of processed data
As soon as you use Axel Springer hy GmbH, our system automatically collects information from the computer system of the calling computer. The following data, among others, may be collected in the process:

Information about the type of browser and the version used.
Operating system of the user
Date and time of access
Websites from which the user accesses our website
Websites that the user accesses via our website
In addition, we process the following personal data if a contractual relationship exists between you and us or you have otherwise transmitted the data to us:

Personal master data (name, address, date of birth)
Communication data (telephone number, e-mail address)
Contract master data (contractual relationship, product or contractual interest, order history)
Billing and payment data
Employee data (name, address and communication data, contract master and billing data, date of birth, marital status, nationality, religious denomination, area of activity, social benefits, payroll tax data, social data, bank details, personnel administration and control data, access and access control data)
Applicant data (name, address and communication data, application-relevant data)


4. legal basis and purposes of processing
We process your data exclusively on the basis of one or more of the possible legal bases.

According to the GDPR, personal data may be processed in particular on the basis of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, if consent has been given, on the basis of a legitimate interest or a law, and for the protection of vital or public interests.
When concluding a subscription or obtaining a service requiring payment, we use your contract master data, including contact data, for the execution and performance of the contract, as is the case, for example, for processing operations necessary for a delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, as well as the enforcement of legal claims or receivables (Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO). The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. In the case of paid services, we process certain data because we are subject to a legal obligation by which a processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO).

We also use your e-mail address collected in the course of registration or in the performance of the contract to inform you by e-mail about our own similar goods or services and about existing subscriptions or about Axel Springer hy GmbH in general. In this case, the processing of the e-mail address is based on our legitimate interest in advertising our goods and services (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO).
In addition, we use your e-mail address to send you our newsletter if you have given us your prior express consent to receive a newsletter or advertising. In this case, we process your e-mail address in order to send you the newsletter as requested (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO). You can object to the use of your e-mail address for such purposes at any time in writing or in text form to info@hy.co or Axel-Springer-Str. 65 in 10888 Berlin with effect for the future, without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates.
On the Internet, every device needs a unique address, the so-called IP address, to transmit data. The at least temporary storage of the IP address is technically necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. We shorten the IP addresses before any processing and only process them anonymously. No storage or further processing of the untruncated IP addresses takes place. Our servers also store your IP address for 14 days for our own security purposes.

In the case of processing operations that are not covered by one or more of the aforementioned legal bases, processing takes place if it is necessary for the protection of a legitimate interest and, based on a comprehensive weighing of interests, does not override your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms (Art. 6 (1) f DSGVO). A legitimate interest can be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller. If the processing of personal data is based on this, our legitimate interest is in particular the conduct of our business for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

Our legitimate interest in being able to offer you customized products, to inform you about our products, innovations and quality features, as well as to continuously improve our services and products and thereby also increase our sales, is the legal basis for processing for the purpose of web/app analytics. For web analytics services in detail, see section 8.

Our legitimate interest in fraud prevention, ensuring network and information security and the reliability of our service provision or products also serves as the legal basis for processing certain data.
Another legitimate interest is the functionality of the company’s operations, on the basis of which processing is carried out for internal administrative purposes (e.g. address management / billing).
If you choose the payment method purchase on account when concluding a contract with costs, we will perform a credit check to verify your creditworthiness based on consent or our legitimate interest to avoid the risk of unpaid receivables.
You can object to the processing on the basis of a legitimate interest at any time (see section 10.).
In the event that the data is processed for a purpose other than that stated when the data was collected, a compatibility check is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (4) DSGVO. Further processing is then only permitted if the original purpose is compatible with the new purpose or is permitted on the basis of a separate legal basis. Recognized compatible purposes include the assertion, exercise or defense of civil claims unless there is an overriding interest of the data subject. In this case, we will inform you about the change of purpose. If the new purpose is not compatible with the purpose stated at the time of collection, a new collection will take place on the basis of a new legal basis. Here, too, we will inform you about the change of purpose.

5 Place of processing
We ourselves do not transfer your personal data to countries outside the European Economic Area, except in cases where it is permitted under the GDPR. Whether third parties with whom you have your own contractual relationship (such as with Facebook, if you have a Facebook account) transfer data to countries outside the European Economic Area is beyond our knowledge and control.

We also process data in countries outside the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). In order to ensure the protection of your personal rights also in the context of these data transfers, we make use of the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission pursuant to Art. 46 Para. 2 lit. c DSGVO when structuring such order processing relationships with the commissioned service providers. These are available at any time at https://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=OJ:L:2010:039:0005:0018:DE:PDF. Alternatively, you can also request these documents from us using the contact details below.

6. origin of data
In certain cases, we also receive data because you have consented to its transfer to us.

7. transfer of your data to third parties
We only transfer your personal data to third parties if the transfer is necessary to fulfill our contractual obligations to you and this is obviously done at or together with another provider (e.g. in the case of cooperations), we are otherwise legally entitled or obliged to transfer the data, or you have given us your consent to do so.
In order to provide our service, selected personal data may be communicated to certain departments within our company. This includes employees in the Accounting, Product Management, Marketing and IT departments.

In certain cases, we also use external service providers or affiliated companies that are commissioned by us to process data for us in accordance with instructions. Such service providers are contractually obligated by us as processors in accordance with the strict requirements of the GDPR and may not use your data for any other purposes. Processors used by us provide the following services for us in particular: Payment Service(s), Hosting, Collection / Receivables Management, Newsletter Dispatch, Maintenance and Support and Web/App Analysis.

The transfer of data to processors takes place on the basis of Art. 28 (1) DSGVO, alternatively on the basis of our legitimate interest in the economic and technical benefits associated with the use of specialized processors, Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.
If we are legally obliged to do so or if this is permitted under data protection law, we transmit personal data to authorities, for example the police or public prosecutor’s office (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO). The transfer of this data is based on our legitimate interest in combating abuse, prosecuting criminal offences and securing, asserting and enforcing claims and that your rights and interests in the protection of your personal data are not overridden, Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.

8. social networks
You can also find us in social networks of third-party companies, such as Facebook or Twitter. In addition, we have also integrated individual functions of these networks into our online services. However, you can only use both if you are registered and logged in to the respective social network. Please note that the use of the respective social network is subject to the terms of use and privacy policy of that company, over which we have no influence. However, we will be happy to explain to you how such networks process your personal data in this context:

Facebook
We have integrated components of the company Facebook on this website. Facebook is a social network.
A social network is a social meeting place operated on the Internet, an online community that generally allows users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for sharing opinions and experiences or enables the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Among other things, Facebook enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friend requests.
The operating company of Facebook is Facebook Inc, 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. The controller of personal data, if a data subject lives outside the USA or Canada, is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.
Each time one of the individual pages of this website operated by us and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective Facebook component to download a representation of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook. A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=de_DE. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Facebook receives knowledge of which specific sub-page of our website is visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes which specific sub-page of our website the data subject is visiting each time the data subject calls up our website and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject activates one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the „Like“ button, or if the data subject posts a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and stores this personal data.
Facebook always receives information via the Facebook component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is simultaneously logged into Facebook at the time of calling up our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If such transmission of this information to Facebook is not desired by the data subject, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her Facebook account before calling up our website.
The data policy published by Facebook, which can be accessed at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains which setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, various applications are available that make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Such applications can be used by the data subject to suppress data transmission to Facebook.

Google Analytics (with anonymization function)
We have integrated Google Analytics (with anonymization function). Google Analytics is a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited („Google“), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Web analytics is the collection, compilation and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data on which website a data subject came to a website from (so-called referrers), which sub-pages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a sub-page was viewed. A web analysis is predominantly used for the optimization of a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.

We use the addition „_gat._anonymizeIp“ for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this add-on, the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned is shortened and anonymized by Google if access to our websites takes place from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the flow of visitors to our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us showing the activities on our websites, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.

Google Analytics sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. By each call of one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by us and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission calculations.

By means of the cookie, personal information, for example the access time, the place from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject, is stored. Each time the data subject visits our websites, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose this personal data collected via the technical procedure to third parties.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the data subject has the possibility to object to the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and related to the use of this website as well as to the processing of this data by Google and to prevent such processing. For this purpose, the data subject must download and install a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. This browser add-on tells Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about website visits may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google as an objection. If the data subject’s information technology system is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later point in time, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics. Provided that the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the data subject or another person attributable to his or her sphere of control, there is the option of reinstalling or reactivating the browser add-on.

Further information and the applicable Google privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.

This information is collected by the LinkedIn component and assigned by LinkedIn to the respective LinkedIn account of the data subject. If the data subject activates a LinkedIn button integrated on our website, LinkedIn assigns this information to the personal LinkedIn user account of the data subject and stores this personal data.
LinkedIn always receives information via the LinkedIn component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is simultaneously logged into LinkedIn at the time of calling up our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the LinkedIn component or not.

These short messages can be accessed by anyone, including people who are not registered with Twitter. However, the tweets are also displayed to the so-called followers of the respective user. Followers are other Twitter users who follow the tweets of a user. Furthermore, Twitter makes it possible to address a broad audience via hashtags, links or retweets.
The operating company of Twitter is Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.
By each call of one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the for us and on which a Twitter component (Twitter button) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective Twitter component to download a representation of the corresponding Twitter component from Twitter. Further information on the Twitter buttons can be found at https://about.twitter.com/de/resources/buttons. As part of this technical procedure, Twitter receives knowledge of which specific sub-page of our website is visited by the data subject. The purpose of integrating the Twitter component is to enable our users to disseminate the content of this website, to make this website known in the digital world and to increase our visitor numbers.
If the data subject is logged into Twitter at the same time, Twitter recognizes which specific sub-page of our website the data subject is visiting with each call to our website by the data subject and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the Twitter component and assigned by Twitter to the respective Twitter account of the data subject.
