Privacy Policy

Watcholdtimes shall comply with all regulations governing data protection. Watcholdtimes only uses personal data to the extent necessary for relevant technical purposes, for example for the processing of sales contracts. Any collected data shall in no way be used outside of Watcholdtimes, sold or otherwise be passed on to third parties, unless specifically required for the contract of sale. Watcholdtimes collects, processes and uses personal data of the user without further permission to the extent required to complete the contract of sale and invoicing/payment processes. Watcholdtimes collects and automatically saves information from the customer browser in its server log files. These include browser type and version, operating system, referrer URL, host name of the computer accessing the Watcholdtimes server and the time of the server request. Watcholdtimes will not associate or relate these data with data from other sources. In addition, the data is deleted immediately after a statistical analysis has been completed. Following completion of the sales contract and full payment thereof, customer data is stored only to comply with tax and commercial retention periods, but deleted upon expiry of the relevant periods unless the customer has indicated otherwise. Upon request, Watcholdtimes will provide the customer with information on all of his stored personal data. This information will be provided in text format (letter or e-mail).

Privacy Statement with Respect to the Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc, (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google"). The use includes the "Universal Analytics" operating mode. This facilitates the assignment of data, sessions and interactions across several devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus the analysis of a user’s activities across devices.

Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to allow the website operator to 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. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. 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 other services related to website and Internet use. Our legitimate interest in data processing also lies in these purposes. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is § 15 para. 3 TMG and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user-identifiers (e.g. User-IDs) or advertising-identifiers are automatically deleted after 14 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month.
