This includes taking contact details for the responsible person in your company in order to communicate with them. -Visitors to the website: We collect a limited amount of data from visitors to the website.

Please note that we may record our communication in order to better solve the issues raised by you. Certain legal rights apply (the "rights of the person affected"), which we will outline here. -Right to access information: At any time, you have the right to request us to confirm which information we have saved about you, and to request that this information be changed, updated, or deleted. We can then comply with your request. We also have the following options: We may ask you to confirm your identity, or request further information, and provided that this is permitted by law, we can decline your request. In this case, we will explain the reasons for doing so. -Right to objection: If we use your data because we believe this is in our legitimate interests and you do not agree, you have the right to object.

If we agree to your request, we will delete your data, but we will generally assume that you wish your name to be included in the list of persons that do not want to be contacted.

Use of cookies, Automatic Data Collection and Analytical Data Our websites/web services may use "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are saved on the hard drive of your PC (client) for a defined period. Most cookies we may use are deleted at the end of the browsing session (known as session cookies). Other cookies stay on your computer and allow us to recognize your computer on your next visit (permanent or persistent cookies). Cookies usually contain a "cookie ID". This is a pseudonymized date in the form of a unique cookie identification. It consists of a series of characters that can be used to associate websites and the servers with a specific Internet browser (client) in which the cookie is saved. Cookies are generally distinguished into first and third party cookies. First party cookies will only be assigned by the website that you are currently on (for example, the website under the domain acrovid.com). Acrovid may use first party cookies for essential website functions, like for storing website settings, restoring sessions and for securing your session data. For instance, this enables the Acrovid online Store to remember the items that a customer has placed in their shopping cart. However, most areas of our website essentially work without the use of cookies. Within this process, access only occurs in impersonalized form and exclusively when you visit our website. Other websites cannot access this information. To ensure the data security of our visitors, it is necessary to allow first party cookies in order to use the Acrovid Service Center. Third party cookies are set by a third party provider that has been authorized by Acrovid, i.e. not by the actual website that you are currently viewing. By using cookies, we can adjust our offers to best meet customer preferences and can make browsing our site as convenient as possible for you (advertising, conversion tracking and personalization). In addition, we may use third party providers in order to collect online statistics (for instance Google Analytics) as a basis for measuring the success of our advertising offers and subsequently improving them. Even when cookies from third party providers are used, data is only accessed in an anonymized form. Our website collect a variety of general data and information each time one of their pages is loaded. This general data and information is saved to our server log files. Data that may be collected includes (1) browser types used and their versions, (2) operating system used, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our websites (what is known as a "referrer"), (4) subpages on our websites that are accessed by an accessing system, (5) date and time of visit to websites, (6) an Internet Protocol Address (IP address) and (7) any other similar data and information, that could serve as hazard prevention in the event of an attack on our IT systems. No conclusions are drawn about the person concerned during the use of this general data and information. This information is required in order to (1) correctly transmit the content of our website, (2) optimize content of and advertising for our website, (3) guarantee the permanent functional operability of our information technology systems and technology for our website, and (4) in the event of a cyber attack, provide law enforcers with necessary information for prosecution. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated by us statistically and also with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company ultimately to ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us. Anonymous server log file data are stored separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned. 5. Newsletter and other promotional information If you request promotional information via any of the forms of the Site or the Store, or sign up for a newsletter or blog updates, then we will process your data, subject to your consent, for advertising, market research and tailoring electronic services. You can only receive our newsletter if you (1) have a valid email address and (2) have registered for newsletter distribution. When registering for the newsletter, the IP address provided by your Internet service provider (ISP), date and time of registration will also be stored. The collection of this data is necessary in order to track (potential) misuse of email addresses at a later point in time and therefore fulfils the purpose of legal protection for Acrovid. The data will be processed on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time. However, the lawfulness of the data processing already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation. Personal data stored within the scope of registration for newsletters will only be used in order to distribute our newsletter. This data may will solely be transmitted to a email service provider to send the newsletters. In addition, no data is disclosed to third parties. You can cancel the use of your email address for advertising purposes at any time by clicking "Unsubscribe" at the bottom of the newsletter or by sending us an email to privacy@acrovid.com . You can at any time revoke the consent you have granted for storing personal data in order to receive our newsletter. The Acrovid newsletters may contain what are known as tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in emails in HTML format for the purposes of recording and analyzing log files. This enables us to conduct a statistic evaluation of the success or failure of our online marketing campaigns. On the basis of the technology used, we can recognize whether and when an email was opened by you and whether you clicked on the links within the email. Data collected in this manner may be stored and evaluated in the email service provider account, in order to optimize newsletter distribution and modify the content of future newsletters further so that they match the interests of the person receiving the newsletter. Your data will not be disclosed to any third parties. You can revoke your declaration of consent for this, which you have granted separately, in this regard at any time. To do so, please contact us emailing to privacy@acrovid.com . 6. Disclosure of Personal Information to third parties Except as otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, or for legal reasons, we will not sell, share, or rent any of your Personal Information to third parties, except in these cases:     -your basic personal data like email and name, may be sent to providers of email delivery services, ONLY for the purpose to send newsletters or promotion emails.     -Tax authorities, audit authorities or other authorities, if we in good faith believe that we are required by law or other regulation to disclose such information (for example, because of a request from a tax authority or in connection with an anticipated legal dispute)     -External service providers that provide services in our name (auditors and accountants, technical support)     -Providers of external IT services and storage providers, if a corresponding arrangement (or similar assurance) exists     Marketing technology platforms and suppliers     -If in future we merge with or are acquired by another company (or should meaningful discussion about such a possibility take place), we may disclose your personal data to the (future) new company owners. In general, we reserve the right to also transmit your data to other countries outside of the EU or EEA. In this case, we will however ensure a minimum level of data protection corresponding to the GDPR level of protection, through the appropriate arrangements. 7.Data Security and Confidentiality In order to maintain the highest level of Customer and Supplier protection, we adhere to the applicable industry rules and regulations. Thus, we maintain commercially reasonable and appropriate physical, technical, and organizational measures and procedures to safeguard and secure your Personal Information during data processing, particularly collection, transmission, and storage. Your Personal Information is only accessible by specially authorized personnel familiar with Acrovid's data privacy policies. However, no company, including Acrovid, can fully eliminate security risks associated with Personal Information. In general, we delete your data as soon as it is no longer required for the above-mentioned purposes, unless temporary storage is still necessary. We store your data on the basis of legal proof and storage obligations, the legal storage periods may be up to ten full years. In addition, we keep your data for the period during which claims can be asserted against our company. Upon your request, we will block your personal information from further use based on applicable law. Once the statutory retention periods have expired, the data will be removed from our operative systems. You recognize that any deletion of your Personal Information extends only to the data related to you as a person stored in systems under our control. Acrovid will not have any liability whatsoever to you for any termination of your account or related deletion of your Personal Information or data as it is processed by Suppliers or resellers. When we delete Personal Information that we have collected from or about you, we will take appropriate and economically reasonable measures to delete such information from our active databases but it may remain in our archives. Our archives are strictly restricted to prevent unauthorized access and processing. 8. Functionality of our products and security of our intellectual property rights We are dependent on protecting our intellectual property rights, not least for the purposes of being able to offer you our products and services at their usual standard of quality and at attractive prices. In order to guarantee effective copy protection and enable you, depending on the product, to use our software on several computers, each installation of our software is linked to your user account, where certain data must be obligatorily saved (name, email address and country). It is only in this way that we can provide you with updates and patches for your software. To guarantee smooth operability of our products, you are therefore required to provide us with the above mentioned data Exercise or defence of legal rights: In unusual cases, we may also use your personal data in order to assert, exercise or defend legal rights. We may use your personal data for these purposes if it corresponds with our legitimate interests. 9. Registration on our website You can register your personal data on our website, for instance by signing up to our newsletter or setting up a user account. The specific personal data you submit to Acrovid is dependent on the type of input mask used for registration. The personal data submitted by the person concerned will be collected and stored for the sole purpose of internal use and purposes by Acrovid. We may arrange for disclosure to one or more contract processors, for example a email service provider, who also uses the personal data exclusively for an internal use that is attributable to us. When registering on an Acrovid website, the IP address provided by your Internet service provider (ISP), date and time of registration will also be stored. This data is stored against the background that the misuse of our services can only be prevented in this manner and that this data may enable committed criminal offences to be investigated. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary for Acrovid security reasons. This data will not be passed on to third parties unless required to do so by law or for the purpose of criminal prosecution. Registration by voluntarily submitting data also enables us to offer you content or services that may only be offered to registered users due to to the nature of the offer. Registered users are free to modify personal data submitted during registration or have them deleted in entirety from our database. Upon request, we will provide you at any time with information about which personal data we have stored about you. We will also correct or delete personal data upon your request or notification, as long as this does not conflict with any legal storage obligations. 10. Use and application of third party tools and services on our websites The Acrovid website may have embebed third party videos from youtube.com or vimeo.com . Like most websites, however, YouTube and Vimeo also uses cookies to collect information about the visitors to its website. They uses them, among other things, to collect video statistics, to prevent fraud, and to improve user-friendliness. This also leads to a connection with the Google DoubleClick network. Starting the video could trigger further data processing. We have no influence on this.
