Data protection declaration for the website www.gearrilla.com
In this data protection declaration, we explain to you whether and how we collect, use and process personal data and to whom we pass such data on when you visit the website www.gearrilla.com or use Gearrilla.
“We” or “Gearrilla” are Gearalist UG (haftungsbeschränkt), Aribostrasse 12, 83700 Rottach-Egern, email address: firstname.lastname@example.org, Telefon: (0049) 151 / 425 47774, represented by Managing Director Bjorn Beyersdorff.
Data protection officer
Gearrilla’s data protection officer is Leonhard Weiß, who can be reached using the following contact data: email@example.com.
Collection and transfer of personal data
It is possible to merely visit our website www.gearrilla.com without providing personal data.
As explained separately below, different rules may apply to the use of individual functions on our website. Your personal data (e.g. name, address, email, telephone number, leased or rented items and comparable information) will only be processed and stored by us pursuant to the provisions of German data protection law. Data are considered “personal” if they can be clearly attributed to a specific natural person. The legal basis for data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz; BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz; TMG). The provisions below inform you about the type, scope and purpose of our collection, use and processing of personal data as well as about the criteria for determining the duration of the storage of personal data.
We would like to point out that Internet-based data transmission entails security gaps and therefore seamless protection against access by third parties is impossible.
We offer you the option to register on our website ("sign up"). The data entered in the course of this registration, which can be seen in the input mask of the registration form (email address, password), are collected and stored exclusively for the use of our offerings based on your corresponding consent. When you register on our site, we also store your IP address and the date and time of your registration. This serves as security for us in the case a third party misuses your data and registers with these data on our site without your knowledge. The data are not passed on to third parties. No reconciliation takes place of the data collected in this way with data possibly collected by other components of our site.
Letting and renting of articles
If you let or rent items via Gearrilla, we collect, based on your consent, the data necessary to process these transactions, namely your contact and address data, your payment information and the articles you have let or rented.
In order to enable a contract to be concluded in accordance with the General Rental Terms and User Information of www.gearrilla.com, we enable the exchange of lessor and tenant data in accordance with this data protection declaration.
We offer you the option on our website to contact us via email and/or a contact form ("Contact"). In this case, the information you provide will be stored based on your consent for the purpose of processing your contact. The data will not be passed on to third parties. No reconciliation takes place of the data collected in this way with data possibly collected by other components of our site.
We offer you the option to leave comments about the individual contributions on our website. The IP address of the author/connection owner is stored when doing so. This storage is undertaken for our security in the event the author infringes third-party rights and/or posts unlawful content. We therefore have a vested interest in the stored data of the author, especially since we may be prosecuted for any such rights infringements. No reconciliation takes place of the data collected in this way with data possibly collected by other components of our site.
Subscription to comments
We offer you the option on our website to subscribe to follow-up comments on contributions about which you comment. If you choose this option, you will receive a confirmation email verifying that you are the actual owner of the email address provided. The decision to subscribe to such follow-up comments can be cancelled at any time. Details can be found in the confirmation mail. The data thus obtained will not be passed on to third parties. No reconciliation takes place of the data collected in this way with data possibly collected by other components of our site.
Shipping of gear
If a lessor decides to ship an item, we will pass on the lessor’s address and the address of the tenant to the shipping company DHL.
Anonymized user profile
We reserve the right to create anonymous user profiles (e. g.: number of rented tents in Frankfurt broken down by month) from the information available to us and to process these anonymous profiles for statistical purposes, for example. If we have created an anonymous user profile, it is not possible for us or for third parties to reanonymize such profile.
Deletion of your data
We delete the personal data you have transmitted to us when such data no longer need to be stored (e.g. for the processing of a rental agreement) and when we are no longer legally obliged to do so.
In this way, we will delete the name and email address you entered when you registered, if you delete your account. If a contract has been concluded between users of Gearrilla for which a commission claim has arisen, we store the information on this concluded contract for 10 years, calculated from the end of the year in which the corresponding rental agreement was concluded. We also store other business correspondence for 10 years, calculated from the end of the year in which such business correspondence originates.
Use of Google Analytics with anonymization function
We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (hereinafter, "Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer to help you analyze how users use the site.
The information generated by these cookies, such as the time, location and frequency of your website visits, including your IP address, is transmitted to and stored by Google in the United States.
We use Google Analytics on our website with the addition "_gat. _anonymizeIp". In this case, Google already shortens your IP address within EU member states or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, thus rendering it anonymous.
Google uses this information to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports on website activity for us and to provide other services relating to website and Internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if required by law or if third parties process these data on behalf of Google.
Use of Google+ recommendation components
On our site, we use the "G+" button of the provider Google+ from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (hereinafter, "Google").
Each time our website receives an access request equipped with such a "G+" component, this component prompts your browser to download a corresponding image of the component from Google. This process informs Google which specific page of our website is currently being visited.
According to Google, no further evaluation of your visit takes place if you are not logged into your Google account.
If you visit our site while logged into Google, Google may collect information about your Google account, the site you are recommending, your IP address and other browser-related information when you click the “G+” button.
In this way, your "G+" recommendation can be saved and made available to the public. Your Google "G+" recommendation submitted in this way can then be displayed as a notice along with your account name and, if applicable, your Google photo in Google services, e.g. in search results, in your Google account or at other locations such as websites and ads on the Internet. Furthermore, Google can link your visit to our site with your data stored on Google. Google also records this information to further improve its services.
If you want to prevent the Google from collecting data as described above, you must log out of your Google Account before you visit our website.
Use of Facebook components
We use components of the provider facebook.com on our site. Facebook is a service of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.
Each time our website receives an access request with such a component, this component prompts the browser you are using to download a corresponding image of the component from Facebook. Through this process, Facebook is informed about the specific page of our website you are currently visiting.
If you access our site while logged into Facebook, Facebook will recognize the specific page you are visiting through the information collected by the component and will allocate this information to your personal account on Facebook. For example, if you click on the "Like" button or make comments, this information will be transferred to your personal user account on Facebook and stored there. In addition, the information that you have visited our site will be passed on to Facebook. This happens regardless of whether you click on the component or not.
If you wish to prevent Facebook from transmitting and storing the data about you and your behaviour on our website, you must log out of Facebook before you visit our site. Facebook's privacy notices provide further information on this subject, particularly on the collection and use of data by Facebook, your rights in this regard and how to set options for privacy protection: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
There are also external tools available on the market that can be used to block Facebook social plug-ins with add-ons for all popular browsers.
You can find an overview of Facebook plug-ins at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
Use of Google AdSense
We use so-called “cookies” on our site to recognize multiple usages of our offerings by the same user/Internet connection owner. Cookies are small text files that your Internet browser places and stores on your computer. They serve to optimize our website and our offerings. These are usually so-called "session cookies", which are deleted at the end of your visit.
In some cases, however, these cookies provide information to recognize you automatically. This recognition is based on the IP address stored in the cookies. The information thus obtained is used to optimise our offerings and to facilitate your access to our site.
The following data, which your Internet browser transmits to us or to our web space provider, are collected for technical reasons (so-called “server logfiles”):
– browser type and version
– operating system used
– website form which you visit us (referrer URL)
– web page you are visiting
– date and time of your access
– your Internet protocol (IP) address
These anonymous data are stored separately from any personal data you may have entered and thus do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about a specific person. They are evaluated for statistical purposes in order to optimize our website and our offerings.
Information/withdrawal/deletion/data transmission/right to lodge complaints
Based on the Federal Data Protection Act, you may contact us free of charge if you have any questions regarding the collection, processing or use of your personal data or the correction, blocking or deletion thereof or the revocation of a granted consent. We would like to point out that you have the right to rectify incorrect data or to delete personal data, provided this claim does not run contrary to any legal obligation to keep such data.
You have the right to obtain the relevant personal data you provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format and you have the right to require us to transmit such data to another responsible entity.
Naturally, if you believe we have violated data protection regulations, you can lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority, the State Office for Data Protection Supervision, P.O. Box 606,91511 Ansbach, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
