Welcome to our website! We take the protection of your data and your privacy very seriously. The purpose of this document is to provide you with information about what types of data we process and when, for what purpose and on what legal basis we process data. In this document, we would like to explain to you how our services work and how we protect your personal data.

In accordance with Article 4 (1) of the GDPR, personal data means all information relating to an identified or identifiable individual. An identifiable natural person is someone who can be identified, either directly or indirectly. For further information, please refer to Article 4 (1) of the GDPR.

If we use our legitimate interest or the legitimate interest of a third party as the legal basis for processing your personal data (Article 6 (1) point f) of the GDPR), you have the right to object to this processing pursuant to Article 21 of the GDPR:

Under Article 21 of the GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time. We shall then no longer process your personal data for purposes of direct marketing or any related profiling.

Likewise, we shall then no longer process your personal data for any other purpose, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate reasons for processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or unless the processing serves to enforce, exercise or defend legal claims (see Article 21 (1) of the GDPR, the so-called ‘Limited right of objection’). In this case, you have to set out the reasons for the objection that relate to your particular situation.

Where personal data is processed for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89 (1) of the GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data for reasons relating to your particular situation, unless processing is required to carry out a task for reasons of public interest (see Article 21 (6) of the GDPR).

In the individual sections, we will point out the right to object separately to you (e.g. by saying: "You have the right to object") if this right applies. There you will also find further information on how to exercise your right to object.

In order to keep the following privacy policy transparent, we refer to information and privacy notices on external websites (see also the section "Social Networks & External Links" in this privacy policy) in various places via links.

These web beacons can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic to websites. The information generated by cookies and web beacons about the use of our website (including the user's IP address) is transmitted to a Google server, possibly in the USA or other third countries, and stored there. This information can be passed on by Google to Google's contractual partners.

If you register for our newsletter, we process the following information (also personal data) from you:

· Object and profile reference
· email address

With the help of the Mailchimp service, we analyse the success and reach of our newsletters (campaigns). We evaluate, for example, whether you open a newsletter or how you proceed with the newsletter.

For this purpose, Mailchimp uses and stores cookies, for example, to enable statistical surveys and to build up interest profiles. It is possible for us to understand how you react to individual newsletters from us (e.g. whether you have opened the newsletter).

By registering for the newsletter, you consent to the processing of your personal data (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR), whereby we secure the registration with a double opt-in procedure:

In a first step, you enter the mandatory information (e.g. e-mail address) and consent to the processing of your personal data by activating the appropriate box. In a second step, you will then automatically receive an e-mail with a confirmation or activation link, which you should also confirm or activate. This will ensure that the email address you enter on our website is yours.

The collection and processing of the user's e-mail address serves the purpose of delivering the newsletter. The collection and processing of further personal data as part of the registration process has the purpose of preventing misuse of our newsletter or the e-mail address used. In addition, the processing described above serves to enable us to prove that we have received your consent.

Fax-No.: please send an email
E-Mail: privacy@dvhventures.de

II. Responsibility with regard to the processing of Insights data

Facebook has assumed the primary responsibility (assumption of all obligations under the GDPR) for data processing. This means in particular:

• Facebook assumes the necessary duties to provide information (e.g. Art. 13 GDPR).
• Data subject rights can be asserted against Facebook (e.g. right to information or deletion, objection to data processing or revocation of any consent given; see also section "V. Data subject rights").
• Ensuring the technical and organizational measures of data processing

Facebook provides comprehensive information regarding data processing at www.facebook.com (Art. 13 GDPR). In order to provide you with an overview of the essential information, we also refer to the contents provided by Facebook within the framework of this data protection notice.

Regardless of Facebook's agreed primary responsibility, you can of course also assert your rights directly against us within the framework of the GDPR. We will immediately forward this request to Facebook using a form available for this purpose.

III. Legal basis for the processing

You can view the legal basis and the purposes of the processing of Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/legal_bases as well as https://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php.

Our legal basis for the processing of Insights data is our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in being able to track user behaviour on our Facebook fan page. In particular, this enables us to record the scope and effectiveness of our campaigns, postings and other activities through prepared statistics.

IV. Data processing on a Facebook fan page

In particular, Facebook may process the following data:

• User interaction (click behaviour, postings, likes, viewing videos, page views, etc.)
• Cookies
• Demographic characteristics (age, gender, state, etc.)
• IP address
• System and device information (e.g. browser type, operating system, etc.)

The exact processing of your data when you visit our Facebook fan page depends on whether you have a Facebook account or not. If you have a Facebook account, Facebook can permanently associate the information with your account to learn more about you.

Even if you do not have a Facebook account, Facebook can still store your information. This can be done through the use of cookies. These are usually small text files that are stored on your device. Various information is written into this text file, which can be read out again at a later point in time. This makes it possible for Facebook to store and process information about you even without you having a Facebook account. More detailed information about Facebook's cookies can be found at https://de-de.facebook.com/policies/cookies/.

As part of the Insights usage, we only receive anonymous statistics from Facebook about the use of our fan page. We can only see how many users have performed certain interactions, not which user has performed a certain action. The statistics of the Insights data do not allow us to draw any conclusions about a person.
