We at CSGOTrades UG (haftungsbeschränkt) care a lot about your data.
We always handle your data securely. The information below will give you a good understanding about it.
We have drawn up this data protection declaration (version 10.10.2020-311220524) to explain to you, in accordance with the provisions of the basic data protection regulation (EU) 2016/679, what information we collect, how we use data and what decision-making options you have as a visitor to this website.
Unfortunately, it is in the nature of things that these explanations sound very technical, but we have tried to describe the most important things as simply and clearly as possible.
Automatic data storage
When you visit websites today, certain information is automatically created and stored, including on this website.
When you visit our website as you are visiting it right now, our web server (the computer on which this website is stored) automatically stores information such as
- The address (URL) of the accessed web page
- Browser and browser version
- The operating system used
- The address (URL) of the previously visited page (referrer URL)
- The host name and IP address of the device being accessed
- Date and time
- In files (web server log files).
Usually web server log files are stored for two weeks and then automatically deleted. We do not pass on this data, but cannot exclude the possibility that this data may be viewed in the event of illegal behavior.
Our website uses HTTP cookies to store user-specific data.
Cookies store certain user data about you, such as language or personal page settings. When you return to our site, your browser transmits the "user-related" information back to our site. Thanks to the cookies, our website knows who you are and offers you your usual default settings. In some browsers, each cookie has its own file, in others, such as Firefox, all cookies are stored in a single file.
What about my privacy?
The so-called "cookie guidelines" have been in place since 2009. They state that the storage of cookies requires your consent. Within the EU countries, however, there are still very different reactions to these guidelines. In Germany, the cookie guidelines have not been implemented as national law. Instead, the implementation of this guideline was largely carried out in § 15 para.3 of the Telemediengesetz (TMG).
If you want to know more about cookies and are not afraid of technical documentation, we recommend https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6265, the Request for Comments of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) called "HTTP State Management Mechanism".
Storage of personal data
Personal information that you submit to us electronically on this website, such as your name, e-mail address, postal address or other personal information when submitting a form or comments on the blog, together with the time and IP address, will only be used by us for the purpose stated in each case, will be kept securely stored and will not be disclosed to third parties.
Thus, we use your personal data only for communication with those visitors who expressly request contact and for the processing of the services and products offered on this website. We will not pass on your personal data without your consent, but we cannot exclude the possibility that this data may be viewed in the event of unlawful behaviour.
If you send us personal data by e-mail - thus off this website - we cannot guarantee secure transmission and protection of your data. We recommend that you never send confidential data by e-mail without encryption.
According to article 6 paragraph 1 a DSGVO (legality of processing), the legal basis is that you give us your consent to process the data you have entered. You can revoke this consent at any time - an informal e-mail is sufficient, you will find our contact details in the imprint.
Rights according to the basic data protection regulation
In accordance with the provisions of the DSGVO, you are basically entitled to the following rights:
- Right of rectification (Article 16 DSGVO)
- Right of deletion ("right to be forgotten") (Article 17 DSGVO)
- Right to restrict processing (Article 18 DSGVO)
- Right of notification - Obligation to notify in connection with the correction or deletion of personal data or the restriction of processing (Article 19 DPA)
- Right to data transferability (Article 20 DSGVO)
- Right of objection (Article 21 DSGVO)
- Right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling (Article 22 DPA)
If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or your data protection rights have otherwise been violated in any way, you can contact the Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (BfDI).
Evaluation of visitor behavior
In the following data protection declaration, we inform you whether and how we evaluate data from your visit to this website. The evaluation of the collected data is usually anonymous and we cannot draw any conclusions about your personal behavior on this website.
You can find out more about how to object to this evaluation of visit data in the following data protection declaration.
TLS encryption with https
We use https to transmit data tap-proof on the Internet (data protection through technology design article 25 paragraph 1 DSGVO). By using TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transmission on the Internet, we can ensure the protection of confidential data. You can recognize the use of this data transmission security by the small lock symbol in the upper left corner of the browser and the use of the scheme https (instead of http) as part of our internet address.
On our website we use the analysis tracking tool Google Analytics (GA) of the American company Google Inc. For the European area the company Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services. Google Analytics collects data about your actions on our website. For example, when you click on a link, this action is stored in a cookie and sent to Google Analytics. With the help of the reports we receive from Google Analytics, we can better tailor our website and services to your needs. In the following we will go into more detail about the tracking tool and inform you in particular about what data is stored and how you can prevent this.
What is Google Analytics?
Google Analytics is a tracking tool that is used for traffic analysis of our website. To make Google Analytics work, a tracking code is built into the code of our website. When you visit our website, this code records various actions that you perform on our website. As soon as you leave our website, this data is sent to the Google Analytics servers and stored there.
Google processes the data and we receive reports about your user behavior. These reports may include the following:
- Target group reports: Through target group reports we get to know our users better and know more precisely who is interested in our service.
- Advertising reports: Advertising reports help us to analyze and improve our online advertising.
- Acquisition reports: Acquisition reports give us helpful information on how we can get more people interested in our service.
- Behavioral Reports: Here we learn how you interact with our website. We can track which path you take on our site and which links you click on.
- Conversion reports: Conversion is the process by which you perform a desired action based on a marketing message. For example, when you go from a mere website visitor to a buyer or newsletter subscriber. We use these reports to learn more about how our marketing activities are received by you. This is how we want to increase our conversion rate.
- Real-time reports: Here we always know immediately what is happening on our website. For example, we can see how many users are currently reading this text.
Why do we use Google Analytics on our website?
Our goal with this website is clear: We want to offer you the best possible service. The statistics and data from Google Analytics help us to achieve this goal.
The statistically evaluated data give us a clear picture of the strengths and weaknesses of our website. On the one hand, we can optimize our site so that it can be found more easily by interested people on Google. On the other hand, the data helps us to better understand you as a visitor. We therefore know exactly what we need to improve on our website in order to offer you the best possible service. The data also helps us to carry out our advertising and marketing measures more individually and cost-effectively. After all, it only makes sense to show our products and services to people who are interested.
Which data is stored by Google Analytics?
Google Analytics uses a tracking code to create a random, unique ID associated with your browser cookie. This is how Google Analytics recognizes you as a new user. The next time you visit our site, you will be recognized as a "returning" user. All collected data is stored together with this user ID. This makes it possible to evaluate pseudonymous user profiles.
Through identifiers such as cookies and app instance IDs, your interactions on our website are measured. Interactions are all kinds of actions you perform on our website. If you also use other Google systems (such as a Google account), data generated by Google Analytics can be linked to third-party cookies. Google does not pass on any Google Analytics data unless we as the website operator authorize it. Exceptions may be made if required by law.
The following cookies are used by Google Analytics:
Purpose: By default, analytics.js uses the _ga cookie to store the user ID. Basically, it is used to differentiate between website visitors.
Expiration date: after 2 years
Purpose: The cookie is also used to differentiate between website visitors.
Expiration date: after 24 hours
Purpose: Used to lower the request rate. If Google Analytics is provided via the Google Tag Manager, this cookie is named _dc_gtm_ <property-id>.
Expiration date: after 1 minute
Value: not specified
Purpose: The cookie has a token with which a user ID can be retrieved from the AMP Client ID Service. Other possible values indicate a logout, a request or an error.
Expiration date: after 30 seconds up to one year
Purpose: This cookie allows us to track your behavior on the site and measure performance. The cookie is updated each time information is sent to Google Analytics.
Expiration date: after 2 years
Purpose: The cookie is used like _gat_gtag_UA_<property-id> to throttle the request rate.
Expiration date: after 10 minutes
Purpose: This cookie is used to determine new sessions. It is updated every time new data or information is sent to Google Analytics.
Expiration date: after 30 minutes
Purpose: This cookie is used to establish new sessions for returning visitors. This is a session cookie, and it is only stored until you close the browser.
Expiration date: After closing the browser
Purpose: The cookie is used to identify the source of traffic to our website. This means that the cookie stores where you came to our website from. This may have been another site or an advertising campaign.
Expiration date: after 6 months
Value: not specified
Purpose: The cookie is used to store user-defined user data. It is always updated when information is sent to Google Analytics.
Expiration date: after 2 years
Note: This list cannot claim to be complete, as Google constantly changes the choice of its cookies.
Here we show you an overview of the most important data collected with Google Analytics:
- Heat maps: Google creates so-called heat maps. With Heatmaps you can see exactly those areas that you click on. This way we get information where you are "on the road" on our site.
- Session duration: Google defines session duration as the time you spend on our site without leaving the site. If you have been inactive for 20 minutes, the session ends automatically.
- Bouncerate: A bouncer is when you only view one page on our website and then leave our website.
- Account creation: When you create an account or place an order on our website, Google Analytics collects this data.
- IP address: The IP address is only shown in abbreviated form so that no clear assignment is possible.
- Location: The IP address can be used to determine the country and your approximate location. This process is also known as IP location determination.
- Technical Information: Technical information includes your browser type, your internet provider or your screen resolution.
- Source of origin: Google Analytics or us, is of course also interested in which website or which advertisement brought you to our site
- Other data includes contact information, any ratings, playing media (e.g. when you play a video on our site), sharing content via social media or adding to your favorites. This list does not claim to be exhaustive and serves only as a general orientation for data storage by Google Analytics.
How long and where is the Google Analytics data stored?
Google has distributed your servers around the world. Most servers are located in America and therefore your data is usually stored on American servers. Here you can find out exactly where the Google data centers are located: https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/?hl=de
Your data is distributed on different physical media. This has the advantage that the data can be retrieved more quickly and is better protected against manipulation. In every Google data center there are appropriate emergency programs for your data. If, for example, Google's hardware fails or natural disasters paralyze servers, the risk of a service interruption at Google remains low.
Google Analytics has a standard retention period of 26 months for your user data. Then your user data will be deleted. However, we do have the option to choose the retention period of user data ourselves. We have five options for this:
- Deletion after 14 months
- Deletion after 26 months
- Deletion after 38 months
- Deletion after 50 months
- No automatic deletion
When the specified period has expired, the data is deleted once a month. This retention period applies to your data associated with cookies, user recognition and advertising IDs (e.g., DoubleClick domain cookies). Reporting results are based on aggregated data and are stored independently of user data. Aggregated data is a fusion of individual data into a larger unit.
How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?
If you basically want to deactivate, delete or manage cookies (independent of Google Analytics), there are separate instructions for each browser:
- Chrome: Delete, activate and manage cookies in Chrome
- Safari: Manage cookies and website data with Safari
- Firefox: delete cookies to remove data that websites have placed on your computer
- Internet Explorer: Delete and manage cookies
- Microsoft Edge: Delete and manage cookies
Google Analytics is an active participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, which regulates the correct and secure transfer of personal data. You can find more information about this at https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&tid=311220524. We hope we were able to provide you with the most important information about data processing by Google Analytics. If you want to learn more about the tracking service, we recommend these two links: http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html and https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.
Google Analytics IP anonymization
We have implemented the IP address anonymization of Google Analytics on this website. This function was developed by Google so that this website can comply with the applicable data protection regulations and recommendations of local data protection authorities if they prohibit the storage of the complete IP address. IP addresses are anonymized or masked as soon as the IP addresses arrive in the Google Analytics data collection network and before the data is saved or processed.
More information about IP anonymization can be found at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2763052?hl=de.
If you register for our newsletter, you provide the above mentioned personal data and give us the right to contact you by e-mail. We use the data stored during the registration for the newsletter exclusively for our newsletter and do not pass them on.
If you unsubscribe from our newsletter - you will find the link for this at the bottom of every newsletter - we will delete all data that was saved when you subscribed to the newsletter.
We integrate elements of social media services on our website to display images, videos and text.
When you visit pages that display these elements, data is transferred from your browser to the respective social media service and stored there. We have no access to this data.
The following links will take you to the pages of the respective social media services where it is explained how they handle your data:
On our website we have integrated functions of Twitter. These are for example embedded tweets, timelines, buttons or hashtags. Twitter is a short message service and social media platform of the company Twitter Inc., One Cumberland Place, Fenian Street, Dublin 2 D02 AX07, Ireland.
If Twitter collects data from other websites, it will be deleted, aggregated or otherwise concealed after a maximum of 30 days. The Twitter servers are located at different server centers in the United States. It can therefore be assumed that collected data is collected and stored in America. After our research we could not clearly determine whether Twitter also has its own servers in Europe. In principle, Twitter can store the collected data until it is no longer useful to the company, you delete the data or a legal deadline for deletion exists.
reCAPTCHA collects personal data from users to determine whether the actions on our website are actually from humans. Thus, the IP address and other data that Google requires for the reCAPTCHA service can be sent to Google. IP addresses are almost always shortened within the member states of the EU or other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before the data lands on a server in the USA. The IP address is not combined with any other data held by Google unless you are logged into your Google Account while using reCAPTCHA. First, the reCAPTCHA algorithm checks whether Google cookies from other Google services (YouTube, Gmail, etc.) are already placed on your browser. Then reCAPTCHA sets an additional cookie in your browser and takes a snapshot of your browser window.
The following list of collected browser and user data is not complete. Rather, they are examples of data that, to our knowledge, are processed by Google:
- Referrer URL (the address of the page the visitor comes from)
- IP address (e.g. 2188.8.131.52)
- Information about the operating system (the software that allows your computer to run. Known operating systems are Windows, Mac OS X or Linux)
- Cookies (small text files that store data in your browser)
- Mouse and keyboard behavior (every action you perform with the mouse or keyboard is saved)
- Date and language settings (which language or date you have preset on your PC is saved)
- Screen resolution (shows how many pixels the image consists of)
It is indisputable that Google uses and analyzes this data even before you click on the checkbox "I am not a robot". With the Invisible reCAPTCHA version, even the ticking is omitted and the whole recognition process runs in the background. How much and what kind of data Google exactly stores, you will not learn from Google in detail.
The following cookies are used by reCAPTCHA: Here we refer to the reCAPTCHA demo version of Google at https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api2/demo. All these cookies require a unique identifier for tracking purposes. Here is a list of cookies that Google reCAPTCHA has set on the demo version:
Purpose: This cookie is set by the company DoubleClick (also owns Google) to register and report the actions of a user on the website in dealing with advertisements. In this way the advertising effectiveness can be measured and appropriate optimization measures can be taken. IDE is stored in browsers under the domain doubleclick.net.
Expiration date: after one year
Purpose: This cookie collects statistics about website usage and measures conversions. A conversion occurs, for example, when a user becomes a buyer. The cookie is also used to show users relevant advertisements. Furthermore, the cookie can be used to prevent a user from seeing the same ad more than once.
Expiration date: after one month
Expiration date: after 9 months
Purpose: The cookie stores the status of a user's consent to use various Google services. CONSENT is also used for security purposes, to verify users, to prevent fraudulent use of login information and to protect user data from unauthorized attacks.
Expiration date: after 19 years
Purpose: NID is used by Google to adapt advertisements to your Google search. Google uses the cookie to "remember" your most frequently entered search queries or your previous interaction with ads. So you always get customized ads. The cookie contains a unique ID in order to collect the user's personal settings for advertising purposes.
Expiration date: after 6 months
Purpose: As soon as you have checked the "I am not a robot" checkbox, this cookie is set. The cookie is used by Google Analytics for personalized advertising. DV collects information in an anonymous form and is also used to provide user feedback.
By inserting reCAPTCHA, data from you is transferred to the Google server. Where exactly this data is stored is not clearly shown by Google, even after repeated requests. Without having received confirmation from Google, it can be assumed that data such as mouse interaction, time spent on the website or language settings are stored on Google's European or American servers. The IP address that your browser transmits to Google is generally not merged with other Google data from other Google services. However, if you are logged into your Google account while using the reCAPTCHA plug-in, the data will be merged. For this purpose, the different privacy policies of Google apply.
If you do not want any data about you or your behavior to be transmitted to Google, you must log out completely from Google and delete all Google cookies before you visit our website or use the reCAPTCHA software. In principle, the data is automatically transmitted to Google as soon as you visit our website. To delete this data again, you must contact Google support at https://support.google.com/?hl=de&tid=311220524.
So when you use our website, you agree that Google LLC and its representatives automatically collect, process and use data.
