c) Use of Google Analytics

What is Google Analytics and how is it used?

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. This website uses IP anonymisation and therefore your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before this happens. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened 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 the website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the internet.

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

How to refuse using cookies

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

How Google Analytics uses your data

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". This allows IP addresses to be further processed in a shortened form, thus excluding the possibility of personal references. If the data collected about you contains a personal reference, this is immediately excluded and the personal data is immediately deleted.

Why we use Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics to analyse the use of our website and to improve it regularly. We can use the statistics obtained to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has subjected itself to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DS-GVO.

d) Social Media Links

What social media links we use and how they work

We currently use the following social media links on our website: Linkedln and Instagram. When you visit our site, no personal data is initially passed on to the websites of the links. Only if you click on the marked link and thereby activate it, the link provider will receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online offer. In addition, the data mentioned under No 2 lit. a of this declaration will be transmitted. By clicking the link, your personal data is transmitted to the respective site and stored there (in the case of US providers in the USA).
Data Processing by those third parties
We have no influence on the collected data and data processing procedures, nor are we aware of the full scope of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We also have no information about the deletion of the collected data by the linked websites.

e) YouTube Video

We currently embed a video from YouTube in the privacy-enhanced mode. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is initially passed on to YouTube. You can recognize the provider of the Video by the logo of the provider on the video box. Only if you click on the marked box and thereby activate it and play the video, YouTube will receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online offer. In addition, the data mentioned under No. 2 lit. a of this declaration will be transmitted. By playing the video, your personal data is transmitted to YouTube and stored there (in the USA).

Data Processing by the providers

We have no influence on the collected data and data processing procedures, nor are we aware of the full scope of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We also have no information about the deletion of the collected data by the video provider.

The video provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the purpose of presenting need-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective video provider to exercise this right. Through the video we offer you the possibility to get to know us and our products, 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 video is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.

The data is passed on regardless of whether you have an account with the video provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the video provider, the data we collect from you will be directly assigned to your existing account with the video provider. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as you can then avoid being assigned to your profile with the video provider.

Where to find more information on the provider’s data protection

Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by the video provider can be found in the data protection declarations of the provider, which are provided below. There you will also find further information on your rights and settings options to protect your privacy.

f) CONTACT FORM

In addition to the purely informative use of our website, we offer other services which you can use if you are interested. For this purpose, you will generally have to provide additional personal data which we use to provide the respective service and to which the aforementioned data processing principles apply.

When you contact us via our contact form or e-mail the data you provide (e.g. your e-mail address, your name and the personal data you provide in the e-mail) will be stored by us in order to answer your questions. We will delete the data arising in this context after the storage is no longer necessary or we will limit the processing if statutory retention obligations exist.

3. USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

Personal information is never given to third parties, unless you have expressly given your permission for this, and we never collect personal data unless you have provided this data by registering, making a purchase or participating in a survey etc. In these cases we collect data such as name, address, postal code, email, telephone number and your interests.
Personal data is used to carry out the service in connection with which data is collected. The information is also used to gain more knowledge about you and other users of pistonpower.dk. This use can cover surveys and analyses aimed at improving our products, services and technologies, as well as the display of content and advertising adapted to your interests and hobbies.


Any of the information we collect may be used in one of the following ways:
• to display our website to you and to ensure its stability and security (Art. 6 para 1 p 1 lit. f GDPR)
• to improve customer service: your information helps us to respond to your requests and to support you with our services (the legal basis is Art. 6 para 1 p 1 lit. f GDPR);
• The email address you provide may be used to send you information and updates pertaining to your order, in addition to receiving occasional company news, updates, related product or service information, etc. (the legal basis is Art. 6 para 1 p 1 lit. a, b and f GDPR).

4. PROTECTION OF PERSONAL DATA

The Personal Data Act states that your personal data is confidential and must be stored securely. We store your personal data on computers with limited access, which are placed in controlled facilities. Furthermore, our security measures are regularly inspected in order to ensure that our user data is managed responsibly and in accordance with your rights as user. However, we cannot guarantee 100% security of data transfers over the Internet. This means that there can be a risk of others gaining unauthorised access to personal data when data is sent and stored electronically. You submit your personal data at your own risk.
Personal data is deleted or made anonymous once it has fulfilled the purpose for which it has been gathered.
The fast development of the Internet means that we might have to change our way of processing personal data. We therefore reserve the right to update and change the current guidelines for use of personal data. If we do this, we will of course change the ”last updated” date at the bottom of the page. In case of major changes, we will inform you by a visible notification on our website.

5. YOUR RIGHTS

Concerning your personal data you have the following rights toward PistonPower:
• right to access the personal data we process about you,
• right to rectification or erasure,
• right to restriction of processing,
• right to data portability,
• right to object to processing.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes the GDPR. Submit your complaint to the Danish Data Protection Agency.
If you have given your consent to the processing of your data, you can withdraw it at any time. Such a withdrawal does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
If we base the processing of your personal data on legitimate interests, you may object to the processing. This is the case if processing is not necessary in particular for the performance of a contract that you are a party of and if described by us in the following description of the functions. When objecting, we ask you to explain the grounds relating to your particular situation 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 compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, on the basis of which we will continue processing.
If you would like access to the data registered about you at PistonPower, please contact info@pistonpower.eu. Use the same point of contact if incorrect data has been registered, or if you have any objections or if you want to withdraw your consent.
