II. General information about data processing

We collect and use personal data for our users only to the extent that this is necessary in order to provide a functional website as well as our content and services.

III. Presentation of the website and creation of log files

Every time our website is accessed, our system automatically records information from the computer system which accesses it, logging the following data:

  • information about browser type and version used
  • the user’s operating system
  • the user’s operating system
  • the user’s IP address
  • date and time of the user’s access to the website
  • websites from which the user’s system accesses our website
  • websites that are accessed by the user’s system through our website

The data are also stored in the log files of our system. These data are not stored together with the user’s other personal data.

IV. Use of cookies

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in the Internet browser or the Internet browser on the user’s computer system. When a user visits a website, a cookie may be stored on the user’s operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic string that allows the browser to be uniquely identified when the website is reopened.

We use cookies in the Partner Portal and Support Portal (support.maringo.de), both restricted areas of our website which can only be accessed by business partners. Those cookies allow for a user-friendly handling as the relevant areas of our website require the visiting browser to be identified even after a page break.

In this cookie, only login data are stored and transmitted.

In addition, our website uses cookies that allow us to analyze the user’s surfing behavior.

This way, the following data can be transmitted:

  • Search terms entered
  • Frequency of page views
  • Use of website features

The data of the users collected in this way are pseudonymized by technical precautions. Therefore it is no longer possible to assign the data to the visiting user. The data will not be stored together with other personal data of the users.

V. Newsletter

On our website you have the option to subscribe to a free newsletter. If you are interested in the newsletter, we require an email address as well as some information to make sure you are the owner of this email address. Any further disclosure of personal data is optional.

For the processing of the data, your consent is obtained during the registration process and reference is made to this privacy policy.

In connection with the processing of data for the sending of newsletters, there is no disclosure of the data to third parties. The data will be used exclusively for sending the newsletter.

VI. Contact form and email contact

On our website, there is a contact form which can be used to contact us electronically. If a user uses this option, the data entered in the input screen shall be transferred to us and stored. This data includes first name and surname, street address, postal code, town, country, phone number, email address, nature of request.

For the processing of the data, your consent is obtained during dispatch and reference is made to this privacy policy.

Alternatively, you can contact us via the email address provided. In this case, the user’s personal data transmitted by email will be stored.

There will be no disclosure of the data to third parties. The data will be used exclusively for processing the conversation.

VII. Web analysis by Matomo (formerly PIWIK)

On our website we use the open source software tool Matomo (formerly PIWIK) to analyze the surfing behavior of our users. The software sets a cookie on the user’s computer (see above for use of cookies).  If individual pages of our website are accessed, the following data is stored:

  • two bytes of the IP address of the user’s visiting system
  • the called up web page
  • the website from which the user has accessed the accessed website (referrer)
  • the subpages that are accessed from the accessed website
  • the duration of stay on the website
  • the frequency of visiting the website

The software runs exclusively on the servers of our website. The personal data of users is only stored there. The data will not be passed on to third parties.

The software is set so that the IP addresses are not completely stored, but 2 bytes of the IP address are masked (e.g.:  192.168.xxx.xxx). This way it is no longer possible to assign the shortened IP address to the visiting computer.

More information about the privacy settings of the Matomo software can be found under the following link:  https://matomo.org/docs/privacy/.

VIII. Inclusion of third party services and contents

It may happen that third-party contents or services are embedded in our website. This applies to YouTube videos in particular. Those videos have been embedded in an extended data protection mode. However, like most websites, YouTube also uses cookies to collect information on visitors to their website. They use them to track video statistics, avoid fraud and improve user-friendliness, amongst others. This also results in a connection being established with the Google DoubleClick network. This could initiate additional data processing operations when starting the video. We have no influence on that. Please refer to the YouTube privacy policy for further information on data protection:

IX. External links

If you use external links provided on our web pages, those links are not covered by this privacy policy. For the links provided, we aim to ensure compliance with our data protection and safety standards. However, we cannot influence how other providers comply with the regulations. We recommend that you review the other providers’ privacy policies on their respective websites. The following external links are currently accessible from www.maringo.de:

The linked sites were checked for possible infringements at the time they were linked.  At this time, there were no illegal contents discernible. As soon as we become aware of such infringements, we will remove the respective links immediately.

X. Change of privacy policy

To ensure that this privacy policy is always compliant with current legal requirements, we reserve the right to make changes at any time. This also applies in the event that the privacy policy needs to be changed due to new or revised services. The new privacy policy will then take effect on your next visit to our offer.
