- Collection of general data and information
The website of the Spoontainable GmbH collects a series of general data and information with each call-up of the website by a data subject or automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following can be recorded
(1) browser types and versions used,
(2) the operating system used by the accessing system,
(3) the website from which an accessing system arrives at our website (so-called referrer),
(4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
(5) the date and time of an access to the Internet site,
(6) an Internet protocol address (IP address),
(7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and
(8) other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, the Spoontainable GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed in order to.
(1) to deliver the contents of our website correctly,
(2) optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it,
(3) ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and
(4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.
Therefore, the Spoontainable GmbH analyzes anonymously collected data and information on one hand, and on the other hand, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.
- Registration on our website
The data subject has the opportunity to register on the website of the controller by providing personal data. Which personal data are transmitted to the controller in the process results from the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller and for its own purposes. The controller may arrange for the data to be transferred to one or more processors, for example a parcel service provider, who will also use the personal data exclusively for an internal use attributable to the controller. By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the data subject, the date as well as the time of registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place against the background that only in this way can the misuse of our services be prevented and, if necessary, this data makes it possible to clarify committed crimes. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary for the protection of the data controller.
As a matter of principle, this data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to pass it on or the passing on serves the purpose of criminal prosecution. The registration of the data subject by voluntarily providing personal data serves the purpose of the controller to offer the data subject content or services which, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to modify the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have it completely deleted from the data stock of the controller. The controller shall provide any data subject at any time, upon request, with information about what personal data is stored about the data subject. Furthermore, the controller shall correct or delete personal data at the request or indication of the data subject, provided that this does not conflict with any statutory retention obligations. The entire staff of the controller shall be available to the data subject as contact persons in this context.
- Data processing of your user data by Google
Insofar as you have given your consent, Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC, is used on this website. The responsible service provider in the EU is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google").
- a) Scope of processing
- b) User ID
We use the User ID function. With the help of the User ID, we can assign a unique, permanent ID to one or more sessions (and the activities within these sessions) and analyze user behavior across devices.
- c) Google Signals
We use Google Signals. This allows Google Analytics to collect additional information about users who have enabled personalized ads (interests and demographics) and ads can be delivered to these users in cross-device remarketing campaigns.
- d) IP Masking
We use the function 'anonymizeIP' (so-called IP masking): due to the activation of IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google.
During your website visit, the following data is collected, among other things:
- The pages you visit, your "click path".
- achievement of "website goals" (conversions, e.g. newsletter sign-ups, downloads, purchases)
- Your user behavior (for example, clicks, dwell time, bounce rates)
- Your approximate location (region)
- Your IP address (in shortened form)
- Technical information about your browser and the end devices you use (e.g., language setting, screen resolution)
- your internet service provider
- the referrer URL (via which website/ via which advertising medium you came to this website)
Purposes of the processing
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your (pseudonymous [NOT USING USER ID]) use of the website and compiling reports on website activity. The reports provided by Google Analytics are used to analyze the performance of our website and the success of our marketing campaigns.
The recipient of the data is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland as a processor. We have concluded an order processing agreement with Google for this purpose. Google LLC, based in California, USA, and, if applicable, US authorities may access the data stored by Google.
Transmission to third countries
A transfer of data to the USA cannot be ruled out.

- Subscription to our newsletter
On the website of the Spoontainable GmbH, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our enterprise's newsletter. The personal data transmitted to the controller when the newsletter is subscribed to is specified in the input mask used for this purpose. The Spoontainable GmbH informs its customers and business partners at regular intervals by means of a newsletter about enterprise offers. The data subject may only receive our enterprise's newsletter if.
(1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address, and
(2) the data subject registers for the newsletter mailing.
For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address entered by a data subject for the first time for newsletter dispatch using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail serves to verify whether the owner of the e-mail address as the data subject has authorized the receipt of the newsletter. When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system used by the data subject at the time of registration, as assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP), as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of a data subject's e-mail address at a later point in time and therefore serves as a legal safeguard for the controller. The personal data collected in the context of a registration for the newsletter are used exclusively for sending our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a related registration, as could be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter offer or changes in the technical circumstances. No personal data collected as part of the newsletter service will be passed on to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data that the data subject has given us for the newsletter mailing can be revoked at any time.
For the purpose of revoking consent, a corresponding link can be found in each newsletter. Furthermore, it is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter mailing directly on the website of the controller at any time or to notify the controller of this in another way. 7. newsletter tracking The newsletters of the Spoontainable GmbH contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in such e-mails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This enables a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, the Spoontainable GmbH may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were called up by the data subject. Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the newsletter dispatch and to better tailor the content of future newsletters to the interests of the data subject. This personal data will not be disclosed to third parties. Data subjects are entitled at any time to revoke the separate declaration of consent given in this regard via the double opt-in procedure. After a revocation, this personal data will be deleted by the controller. The Spoontainable GmbH automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.
- Contact possibility via the website
Based on statutory provisions, the website of the Spoontainable GmbH contains data that enable a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or by using a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be stored automatically. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the controller will be used for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject.
- Routine erasure and blocking of personal data.
The controller shall process and store personal data of the data subject only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of the storage or where provided for by the European Directive and Regulation or other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject. If the storage purpose ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Maker or another competent legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

Each data subject concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and the Regulation, to obtain from the controller the restriction of processing if one of the following conditions is met:
- The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
- The processing is unlawful, the data subject objects to the erasure of the personal data and requests instead the restriction of the use of the personal data.

If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by the Spoontainable GmbH, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller. The employee of the Spoontainable GmbH will arrange the restriction of the processing.

- g) Right to object
Any data subject concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, to object at any time, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to processing of personal data concerning him or her carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DS-GVO. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The Spoontainable GmbH shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. If the Spoontainable GmbH processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data processed for such marketing. This also applies to the profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to the Spoontainabele GmbH to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the Spoontainable GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes. In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out by the Spoontainable GmbH for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the DS-GVO, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest. In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may directly contact any employee of the Spoontainable GmbH or another employee. The data subject is also free to exercise his/her right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.
- h) Automated decisions in individual cases, including profiling.
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him or her, unless the decision.
(1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller; or
(2) is permitted by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject, and that law contains suitable measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject; or
(3) is made with the explicit consent of the data subject.
If the decision is
(1) necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or
(2) it is made with the explicit consent of the data subject, the Spoontainable GmbH shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms of the data subject, and to protect the data subject's legitimate interests, which include at least the right to obtain the intervention of a data subject on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and contest the decision. If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated decisions, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
- i) Right to withdraw consent under data protection law.
Any data subject concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation-maker, to withdraw consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw consent, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
- Legal basis of the processing
Article 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for a delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which a processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).
- Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party.
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.
- duration for which the personal data are stored.
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfillment or initiation of the contract.
- Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision
We inform you that the provision of personal data is sometimes required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before providing personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will explain to the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be.
