You can configure your browser settings yourself according to your own wishes and refuse the acceptance of third party cookies or all cookies, for example. Please note that you may not be able to use all functions of this website.

This website uses so-called transient cookies and persistent cookies:

4. Further features and offers on our website

If you are interested, you can use various functions and services beyond the purely informational use of our website. As a rule, you will have to provide additional personal data for this purpose. The aforementioned principles of data processing apply to these and we use them to provide the respective service. In some cases we use external service providers to process your data. These have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are bound by our instructions and are regularly checked.

Furthermore, we may pass on your personal data to third parties if we offer services as part of promotions, competitions or similar together with partners. You can obtain more detailed information on this by entering your personal data or in the description of the respective function or the respective offer.

If you have given your consent to the processing of your data, you can revoke this at any time. If you exercise this right, this will affect our ability to process your personal data after you have already given it to us.

If we base the processing of your personal data on a balance of interests and not on the fact that processing is necessary to fulfil a contract with you, you can object to the processing. If you wish to exercise such objection, we ask you to explain to us the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have done. In the event of your justified objection, we will examine the situation and either stop or adjust data processing or point out to you our compelling reasons worthy of protection on the basis of which we will continue processing.

Of course, you may object to the processing of your personal data for advertising and data analysis purposes at any time. You can inform us about your advertising objection by email at info@lemonaid.de or by using the contact details given in the imprint.

7. Web Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and facilitate analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, if IP anonymisation is enabled on this website, your IP address will first be abbreviated by Google within the member states of the European Union or other parties to the agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with further services associated with website and Internet use.

The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not brought together with other Google data.

You may refuse the saving of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. In this case, not all functions of this website may be fully usable. You can also prevent the data generated by cookies concerning your use of the website (incl. your IP address) from being passed to Google, and the processing of these data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. As a result, IP addresses are further processed in truncated form, so that reference to individuals can be ruled out. If the data collected about you is personally identifiable, it will be blocked immediately and the personal data deleted as soon as possible.

(5) We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. We can use the knowledge gained in this way to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework, for exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA.

The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f of the GDPR.

http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html, Overview of data security: http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/learn/privacy.html, and the Privacy Policy: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

This website also uses Google Analytics for an analysis of visitor flows across all devices that is carried out via a user ID (Google Universal Analytics). You can disable the device cross-analysis of your use in your account under “My data”, “personal data”.

8. Social plug-ins

We currently use social plug-ins from Facebook and Instagram and use the so-called two-click solution: when you visit our website, no personal data is initially passed on to the provider of the plug-ins, which you can recognize from the mark on the box above its initial letter or logo. Only if you click on the marked field and thereby activate it, the plug-in provider receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online offer. In addition, the provisions set out above under No. 3 of this declaration.  By activating the plug-in, personal data is transferred from you to the respective plug-in provider and stored there. Since the plug-in provider collects data mainly via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies before clicking on the greyed-out box using your browser’s security settings.

We have no influence on the data collected and data processing processes, nor are we aware of the full extent of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We also have no information on the deletion of the data collected by the plug-in provider. The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses these for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such evaluation is also made for users who are not logged in, to display customised advertising and to inform other users of the social network about activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, which you must exercise directly vis-à-vis the plug-in provider.

Through the plug-ins we offer you the possibility to interact with social networks and other users, so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.

The data transfer is independent of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and whether you are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, your data collected with us will be directly assigned to your existing account with the plug-in provider. When you click the activated button and link to the page, for example, the plug-in provider also stores this information in your user account and communicates this to your contacts in public.

We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, especially before activating the button, as this way you can avoid being assigned to your profile with the plug-in provider.

For more information on the purpose and extent of the data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the privacy statements of these providers provided below. Here, you will also find further information on your rights and the settings options for protecting your privacy.

When you visit this website, YouTube receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the provisions set out above under No. 3 of this declaration. This takes place regardless of whether YouTube makes available a user account via which you are logged in or no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your information will be directly associated with your account. If you do not wish to be associated with your profile when using YouTube, you must first log out before clicking the button. YouTube stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or requirements-oriented design of its website. Such evaluation also takes place (even for users who are not logged in) for the purposes of providing customised advertising and to inform other social network users about activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.
