Privacy Policy

diva-e Textprovider GmbH (“TP”) takes data protection very seriously and will only access and make use of personal data in accordance with prevailing data protection legislation. For TP, using personal data sensitively and responsibly is a fundamental part of professional company activity. TP guarantees that no data will be passed on to unauthorised third parties.

Your data will only be accessed and saved if you have given your consent to TP. You will be informed by TP by e-mail of any changes to data protection legislation. Should you not agree with the latest terms, you can revoke your consent within two weeks. During this period, the amendments will not affect you.

 

1. Registration data

If you would like to work on projects in our editing system, you must register as a member. During this process, TP will ask you for some personal information. The data that TP needs to accept you as member in our editing system are appropriately highlighted. You must provide an e-mail address as this is the primary means of communication. In addition, a telephone number is required for urgent queries and to facilitate the processing of tasks and communication between TP and users.

 

2. Use of your data

TP uses your personal data to make the chosen application available to you. TP is also permitted to use your personal data for its own marketing use (newsletter; credit notes; advertising etc.) as well as to ensure the quality and improvement of its service.

Your personal data will only be saved, processed and used if you expressly agree to this in writing. TP records your agreement to the processing and saving of data. If the usage or service is time limited, then TP will delete your data on completion. We do, however, under certain circumstances such as a legal dispute, investigation of errors or the fulfilment of our company’s conditions, reserve the right to retain personal data even if you have requested it be removed. In addition, for legal and technical reasons, old information will only be completely removed from our data bank twenty (20) years after initial saving, including storage in back-up systems.

 

3. The provision of data to third parties/credit rating

TP only uses your data directly or through related organisations defined by § 15 AktG and, apart from its own marketing purposes (newsletter; credit notes; advertising etc.), only in so far as is required to provide the internet platform or to carry out the contractual relationship. The use for marketing purposes will only occur after receipt of your express agreement to this.

In addition, data will be passed on to third parties so far as this serves the processing of completion of tasks through our editing system. This includes passing on contact data to persons or organisations, which provide parts or functions of the service portal, e.g. the processing of a payment system.

A few of our services are offered in partnership with other organisations. In order to offer this partnership arrangement, it is necessary for TP to inform these partner organisations of your personal data. The data will, however, only be used to carry out the application or service with TP’s partner. If data is collected by any organisation other than TP and/or administered by them, TP will inform you.

Every member of our editing system is required to use information provided only for processing the contract.

 

4. Use of cookies

A cookie is a small piece of data that a website or web server sends to your web browser to be stored there as an anonymous observer, which recognises your PC system, but not you personally.

Our editing system uses so-called session cookies, to accelerate the log-in process so that for every visit to the home page you do not have to log in again. The information is saved in the cookies, which allows us to recognise whether and with which user name your PC system is registered in our editing system. It is up to you whether you accept cookies. If not, you must enter your log-in information every time you visit.

 

5. Security of your data

TP makes every effort to protect your data from unauthorised interception. With the assistance of a system of access authorisation and technical protection measures, such as SSL-cryptographic protocols, the greatest possible data protection is guaranteed. The input of your registration details, your account details, your profile information as well as all other data for contact with other users only takes place within our editorial system after switching over to a particularly secure SSL connection.
