Data protection

Privacy policy

Scope

This data protection declaration explains to users the nature, scope and purposes of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible provider Coffee Consulate, Inh.: Dr. Steffen Schwarz, Hans-Thoma-Stra├če 20, 68163 Mannheim, info[at]coffee-consulate.com, +49 612 40 17 10 73 on this website (hereinafter "offer").

The legal basis for data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).

Access data/ server log files

The provider (respectively his webspace provider) collects data about every access to the offer (so-called server log files). The access data includes:

Name of the accessed website, file, date and time of access, transferred data volume, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.

The provider uses the protocol data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of the offer. However, the provider reserves the right to check the protocol data subsequently if there is a justified suspicion of illegal use based on concrete evidence.

Handling of personal data

Personal data is information with the help of which a person can be determined, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, email address or telephone number. But also data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites have been viewed by someone else are considered personal data.

Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by the provider if this is permitted by law or if the users agree to the collection of data.

Upon completion of a coffeologist or roaster training, the name of the participant will be listed on the coffeologist and/or roaster list with country of origin. No other data will be made public or passed on to third parties. You can contradict the entry on these lists at any time by e-mail (info@coffee-consulate.com) or by telephone (0621 40171073).

Contact

When contacting the provider (e.g. via contact form or e-mail), the user's details are stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event that follow-up questions arise.

Comments and contributions

When users leave comments on the blog or other posts, their IP addresses are stored. This is done for the security of the provider in case someone writes illegal content in comments and posts (insults, prohibited political propaganda, etc.). In this case the provider can be prosecuted for the comment or contribution and is therefore interested in the identity of the author.

Newsletter

With the newsletter we inform you about us and our offers.

If you would like to receive the newsletter, we need a valid email address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided or that the owner agrees to receive the newsletter. Further data will not be collected. This data is only used for sending the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.

When you register for the newsletter, we save your IP address and the date of registration. This storage serves only as proof in the event that a third party misuses an email address and registers to receive the newsletter without the knowledge of the owner.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the email address and its use for sending the newsletter at any time. The revocation can be made via a link in the newsletter itself, in your profile area or by sending a message to the contact details above.

Integration of third party services and content

It can happen that within this online offer third party content, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated. This always presupposes that the providers of these contents (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") are aware of the IP address of the users. Without the IP address, they would not be able to send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore necessary for the display of this content. We make every effort to use only such content whose respective providers use the IP address only to deliver the content. However, we have no influence on this if the third-party providers store the IP address for statistical purposes, for example. As far as we are aware of this, we inform the users about it.

However, in the event that IP anonymisation is activated on this website, the IP address of Google's users within member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area will be shortened beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. IP anonymization is active on this website. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the website by the users, 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 within the scope of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting the settings of their browser software accordingly; however, this offer draws users' attention to the fact that in this case they may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent.

Use of Facebook Social Plugins

This offer uses social plugins ("Plugins") of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook"). The Plugins can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos (white "f" on blue tile, the words "Like", "Like" or a "Thumbs up" sign) or are marked with the addition "Facebook Social Plugin". The list and appearance of the Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

When a user calls up a website of this offer that contains such a plugin, his browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser, which integrates it into the website. The provider therefore has no influence on the scope of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs users according to its state of knowledge:

By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has called up the corresponding page of the offer. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his or her Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example, by pressing the Like button or making a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to find out his or her IP address and store it. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is stored in Germany.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as the relevant rights and setting options to protect the privacy of users, can be found in the Facebook privacy policy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him or her through this offer and link it to his or her membership data stored on Facebook, he or she must log out of Facebook before visiting the website. Further settings and objections to the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads.

Revocation, changes, corrections and updates

The user has the right to request information free of charge about the personal data stored about him/her. In addition, the user has the right to have incorrect data corrected, to block and delete his personal data, provided that this does not conflict with any legal obligation to preserve records.
