Dax-Sport Berlin Andreas Polle, as the controller responsible for processing, has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for the personal data processed through this website. However, internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, each data subject is free to transmit personal data to us using alternative means, such as by telephone.
The data protection declaration of Dax-Sport Berlin Andreas Polle is based on the terms used by the European directive and regulatory authority in the enactment of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understandable for the public, as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.
We use the following terms in this data protection declaration, among others:
· a) Personal data
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "data subject"). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier, or one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural, or social identity of that natural person.
· b) Data subject
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the data controller.
· c) Processing
Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting its processing in the future.
· e) Profiling
Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects concerning that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or movements.
· f) Pseudonymisation
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
· g) Controller or data controller
Controller or data controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data.

However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients.
j) Third party
A third party is a natural or legal person, authority, institution, or other entity other than the data subject, the controller, the processor, and the persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorized to process personal data.
Consent is any freely given, specific, informed, and unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
2. Name and address of the controller
The controller within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation and other data protection laws applicable in the Member States of the European Union and other provisions of a data protection nature is:
Name and address of the data protection officer
The data protection officer of the controller is:
Any data subject may contact our data protection officer directly at any time with any questions or suggestions regarding data protection.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.
Collection of general data and information
With each access of the website of Dax-Sport Berlin Andreas Polle by a data subject or an automated system, a range of general data and information is collected and stored in the log files of the server. This includes (1) the types and versions of browsers used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-pages accessed on our website via an accessing system, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that serves to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
Dax-Sport Berlin Andreas Polle does not draw any conclusions about the data subject when using this general data and information. Rather, this information is required to (1) correctly deliver the contents of our website, (2) optimize the contents of our website as well as advertising for it, (3) ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the necessary information for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. These anonymously collected data and information are therefore evaluated statistically on the one hand and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company on the other, ultimately to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data from the server log files is stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
Registration on our website
The data subject has the option to register on the website of the data controller by providing personal data. The personal data transmitted to the data controller for processing is determined by the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject is collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the data controller and for its own purposes. The data controller may instruct one or more processors, such as a parcel delivery service, to use the personal data exclusively for internal use attributable to the data controller.
By registering on the website of the data controller, the IP address assigned by the internet service provider (ISP) to the data subject, as well as the date and time of registration, are also stored. The storage of this data is necessary to prevent misuse of our services and, if necessary, to investigate crimes committed. Therefore, the storage of this data is necessary to safeguard the data controller. In principle, this data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to pass it on or the disclosure serves criminal prosecution.
The registration of the data subject with voluntary provision of personal data serves the data controller to offer contents or services that can only be offered to registered users due to the nature of the matter. 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 data controller.
The data controller provides each data subject with information at any time upon request about which personal data about the data subject is stored. Furthermore, the data controller corrects or deletes personal data upon request or notice of the data subject, provided that there are no statutory storage obligations. The data controller's entire staff are available to the data subject as a contact person in this regard.
Subscription to our newsletter
On the website of Dax-Sport Berlin Andreas Polle, users are given the option to subscribe to our company's newsletter. The personal data transmitted to the data controller for processing when ordering the newsletter can be found in the input mask used for this purpose.
Dax-Sport Berlin Andreas Polle regularly informs its customers and business partners about the company's offers through a newsletter. The newsletter of our company can only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid email address and (2) the data subject has registered for the newsletter. A confirmation email will be sent in a double opt-in procedure to the email address provided by the data subject for the first time for newsletter distribution for legal reasons. This confirmation email is used to verify whether the owner of the email address as the data subject has authorized receipt of the newsletter.
When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address assigned by the internet service provider (ISP) of the computer system used by the data subject at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration. This data is collected to be able to trace any potential misuse of the data subject's email address at a later time and serves to legally protect the data controller.
The personal data collected during registration for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. Subscribers to the newsletter may also be informed by email if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or for registration, such as in the event of changes to the newsletter offer or changes in technical circumstances. Personal data collected within the framework of the newsletter service will not be disclosed to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter can be terminated by the data subject at any time. The consent to store personal data that the data subject has given us for sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking the consent, each newsletter contains a corresponding link. Furthermore, there is the possibility to unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on the website of the data controller or to communicate this to the data controller in other ways.
The newsletters of Dax-Sport Berlin Andreas Polle contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in HTML-formatted emails, which enables log file recording and log file analysis. This allows for a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, Dax-Sport Berlin Andreas Polle can determine whether and when an email was opened by a person concerned and which links contained in the email were accessed by the person concerned.
Such personal data collected through the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the data controller in order to optimize the newsletter distribution and to better adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the person concerned. These personal data are not disclosed to third parties. Affected persons are entitled at any time to revoke their consent given separately via the double-opt-in procedure. After revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the data controller. Unsubscribing from the newsletter will automatically be considered as revocation by Dax-Sport Berlin Andreas Polle.
Contact option via the website
Due to legal regulations, the website of Dax-Sport Berlin Andreas Polle contains information that enables rapid electronic contact with our company as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general electronic mail (e-mail) address. If an affected person contacts the data controller via e-mail or a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the affected person will be automatically stored. Such personal data voluntarily provided by an affected person to the data controller will be stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the affected person. No disclosure of this personal data to third parties will occur.
Comment function on the blog of the website
Dax-Sport Berlin Andreas Polle offers users the opportunity to leave individual comments on specific blog posts on the website of the data controller. A blog is a publicly accessible portal hosted on a website where one or more individuals, known as bloggers or web bloggers, can post articles or thoughts in blog posts. Blog posts can usually be commented on by third parties.
When an affected person leaves a comment on the published blog on this website, information about the time of the comment input and the username (pseudonym) chosen by the affected person is stored and published along with the comment. In addition, the IP address assigned by the internet service provider (ISP) of the affected person is logged. This storage of the IP address is for security reasons and in case the affected person violates the rights of third parties or posts unlawful content through a comment. Therefore, the storage of this personal data is in the interest of the data controller, so that they could possibly exculpate themselves in case of a legal violation. This collected personal data is not disclosed to third parties unless such disclosure is required by law or serves the defense of the data controller.
Routine erasure and blocking of personal data
The data controller only processes and stores personal data of the affected person for the period necessary to achieve the storage purpose, or as provided for by the European Directive and Regulation Maker or another legislator in laws or regulations to which the data controller is subject.
When the storage purpose is no longer applicable, or when a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Maker or another competent legislator expires, the personal data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with legal regulations.

If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by Dax-Sport Berlin Andreas Polle, they may at any time contact an employee of the controller. The employee of Dax-Sport Berlin Andreas Polle will arrange the restriction of processing.
f) Right to data portability
Any person whose personal data is being processed has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, to receive the personal data concerning themselves, which they have provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. They also have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, where the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) GDPR or Article 9(2)(a) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) GDPR, and the processing is carried out by automated means, provided that the processing is not necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
Furthermore, in exercising their right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) GDPR, the data subject has the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible and where this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
To exercise the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact an employee of Dax-Sport Berlin Andreas Polle.

Every person affected 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 their particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning them which is based on Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
Dax-Sport Berlin Andreas Polle will no longer process the personal data in the event of an 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 establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
If Dax-Sport Berlin Andreas Polle processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning them for such marketing. This also applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to Dax-Sport Berlin Andreas Polle's processing for direct marketing purposes, Dax-Sport Berlin Andreas Polle will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to their particular situation, to object to the processing of personal data concerning them which is carried out at Dax-Sport Berlin Andreas Polle for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.
To exercise the right to object, the data subject may directly contact any employee of Dax-Sport Berlin Andreas Polle or another employee. The data subject is also free to exercise their right to object in relation to the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by automated means using technical specifications.
h) Automated decisions on an individual basis including profiling
Any person whose personal data is being processed has the right, as granted by the European directive and regulation provider, 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 necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) is authorized by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is made with the data subject's explicit consent.

Data protection in job applications and during the application process
The data controller collects and processes personal data from job applicants for the purpose of handling the application process. Processing may also take place electronically. This is particularly the case when an applicant submits application documents electronically, for example, by email or via a web form on the controller's website. If the controller enters into an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of handling the employment relationship in compliance with legal provisions. If the controller does not enter into an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after the rejection decision is announced, unless there are other legitimate interests of the controller that would prevent deletion. Another legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a burden of proof in a proceeding under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
Data protection provisions on the use of Facebook
The controller has integrated components of the company Facebook on this website. Facebook is a social network.
A social network is an online social meeting place operated on the internet that usually allows users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for exchanging opinions and experiences or allow the internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Facebook enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos, and network through friend requests.
The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. The controller responsible for processing personal data is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland, if a data subject lives outside the USA or Canada.
By accessing any of the individual pages of this website operated by the controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the internet browser on the data subject's IT system is automatically prompted by the respective Facebook component to download a representation of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook. An overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be accessed at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_US. As part of this technical process, Facebook becomes aware of which specific subpage of our website is being visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes with each visit to our website by the data subject and during the entire duration of the respective stay on our website which specific subpage of our website the data subject is visiting. 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 clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, such as the "Like" button, or if the data subject comments, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and stores this personal data.
Facebook always receives information about the fact that the data subject has visited our website via the Facebook component if the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the time of accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the data subject does not want such information to be transmitted to Facebook, they can prevent this transmission by logging out of their Facebook account before accessing our website.
The data policy published by Facebook, which can be accessed at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information on the collection, processing, and use of personal data by Facebook. Furthermore, it explains the different privacy settings Facebook offers to protect the data subject's privacy. In addition, various applications are available that allow data transmission to Facebook to be suppressed. Such applications can be used by the data subject to suppress data transmission to Facebook.
Data protection provisions for the use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)
The data controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) into this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects data, among other things, about the website from which a data subject has come to a website (so-called referrers), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for which duration a subpage was viewed. Web analysis is mainly used for the optimization of a website and the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The data controller uses the "_gat._anonymizeIp" add-on for web analysis through Google Analytics. With this add-on, the IP address of the internet connection of the data subject is shortened and anonymized by Google if access to our website is from a member state of the European Union or another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze visitor traffic on our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports that show the activities on our website, and to provide further 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. Each time one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, is called up, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to submit data for the purpose of online analysis to Google. As part of this technical process, Google becomes aware of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission statements to be made.
Personal information, such as the access time, the location from which an access was made and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject, is stored by means of the cookie. Each time our website is visited, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred 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 through the technical process to third parties.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time, as already described above, by means of a corresponding 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.
The controller has integrated YouTube components on this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to freely post video clips and other users to view, rate, and comment on them for free. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why both complete film and television shows, as well as music videos, trailers, or videos created by users themselves, can be accessed through the Internet portal.
The operator of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
Whenever an individual page of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, is accessed, the Internet browser on the data subject's information technology system is automatically prompted by the respective YouTube component to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Further information on YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/. As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google become aware of which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is simultaneously logged into YouTube, YouTube recognizes which specific subpage of our website the data subject is visiting with each call-up of a subpage containing a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.
YouTube and Google receive information via the YouTube component every time the data subject visits our website, whether or not the data subject clicks on a YouTube video, as long as the data subject is logged into YouTube at the time of accessing our website. If the data subject does not want such information to be transmitted to YouTube and Google, they can prevent this transmission by logging out of their YouTube account before accessing our website.
The data protection provisions published by YouTube, which can be accessed at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/, provide information on the collection, processing, and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.
The controller has integrated components from PayPal on this website. PayPal is an online payment service provider. Payments are processed through so-called PayPal accounts, which represent virtual private or business accounts. In addition, PayPal offers the option of processing virtual payments through credit cards if a user does not have a PayPal account. A PayPal account is managed via an email address, which is why there is no classic account number. PayPal allows for initiating online payments to third parties or receiving payments. PayPal also assumes trustee functions and offers buyer protection services.
The European operating company of PayPal is PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. & Cie. S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, 2449 Luxembourg, Luxembourg.
If the data subject selects "PayPal" as the payment option during the ordering process in our online shop, data of the data subject will be automatically transmitted to PayPal. By selecting this payment option, the data subject consents to the transfer of personal data required for payment processing.
The personal data transmitted to PayPal usually consists of the first name, last name, address, email address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number, or other data necessary for payment processing. Personal data necessary for the processing of the purchase contract also includes data related to the respective order.
The transmission of data serves payment processing and fraud prevention. The controller will transmit personal data to PayPal, in particular, when there is a legitimate interest for the transmission. The personal data exchanged between PayPal and the controller may be transmitted to credit agencies under certain circumstances. This transmission serves identity and credit checks.
PayPal may pass on personal data to affiliated companies and service providers or subcontractors as far as this is necessary for fulfilling contractual obligations or the data is to be processed on behalf.
The data subject has the option to revoke consent for the handling of personal data at any time with PayPal. Revocation does not affect personal data that must be processed, used, or transmitted for (contractual) payment processing.
Legal basis for processing
Article 6 (1) (a) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for processing operations for 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, in processing operations necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of a service or consideration, processing is based on Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, processing is based on Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then processing would be based on Article 6 (1) (d) GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).
Legitimate interests pursued by the controller or a third party
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR, our legitimate interest is the conduct of our business activities for the benefit of all our employees and shareholders.
Period for which the personal data will be stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the period has expired, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment or initiation of a contract.
Legal or contractual requirements for the provision of personal data; necessity for contract conclusion; obligation of the data subject to provide personal data; possible consequences of non-provision.
We inform you that the provision of personal data may be required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may result from contractual arrangements (e.g. information about the contractual partner). In some cases, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that we will subsequently process in order to conclude a contract. For example, the data subject may be obligated to provide us with personal data when our company enters into a contract with them. Non-provision of personal data would result in the contract not being able to be concluded with the data subject. Before providing personal data, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is legally or contractually required, whether there is an obligation to provide personal data, and what consequences non-provision of personal data would have.
