DESIGNLOVR GmbH takes the protection of personal data very seriously and undertakes to observe and comply with all legal provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act and the Basic Data Protection Ordinance (DS-GVO) on data protection.
The DESIGNLOVR GmbH website can be used without providing any personal data. However, should a user wish to make use of special services, the processing of personal data may become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, DESIGNLOVR GmbH generally obtains the consent of the user concerned.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of an affected user, is always carried out in accordance with the Basic Data Protection Ordinance (DS-GVO) and in accordance with the Federal Data Protection Act applicable to DESIGNLOVR GmbH. DESIGNLOVR GmbH would like to use this data protection statement to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data it collects, uses and processes.
In this context, the terms used, such as “personal data” or their “processing”, refer to the definitions in Article 4 of the Basic Data Protection Ordinance (DS-GVO). The term “user” covers all categories of data subjects. These include the business partners of DESIGNLOVR GmbH, customers, interested parties and other visitors to the website.
The name and address of the controller
The person responsible within the meaning of the Federal Data Protection Act, the Basic Data Protection Ordinance (DS-GVO) and other data protection laws in force in the Member States of the European Union is:
CEO: Kim-Christopher Granz
Collection of general data and information
The DESIGNLOVR GmbH website collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by an affected user or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server.
It is possible to record (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches this website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-pages which are accessed via an accessing system to the DESIGNLOVR GmbH website, (5) the date and time of access to the Website, (6) an Internet Protocol (IP) address, (7) the Internet service providers of the accessing system, and (8) other similar data and information used for security purposes in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information DESIGNLOVR GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the user concerned. Rather, this information is required to (1) correctly deliver the contents of this website, (2) optimize the contents of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the permanent functionality of the information technology systems and the technology of this website, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.
These anonymously collected data and information are therefore evaluated by DESIGNLOVR GmbH statistically and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security within DESIGNLOVR GmbH in order ultimately to ensure an optimal level of protection for the processed personal data. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by an affected user.
Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as DESIGNLOVR GmbH obtains the consent of the user concerned for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (DS-GVO) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data. In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the user concerned is a party, Article 6.1 (b) DS-GVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which DESIGNLOVR GmbH is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DS-GVO serves as the legal basis. If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of DESIGNLOVR GmbH or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the user do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1 letter f DS-GVO serves as the legal basis for processing.
Security measures and data encryption
DESIGNLOVR GmbH takes organizational, contractual and technical security measures in accordance with the state of the art in order to ensure that the provisions of data protection laws are observed and thus to protect the data processed by DESIGNLOVR GmbH against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against access by unauthorized third parties.
The security measures include in particular the encrypted transmission of data between the user's browser and the DESIGNLOVR GmbH server.
By means of a cookie, the information and offers on this website can be optimized in the user's interest. Cookies enable DESIGNLOVR GmbH, as already mentioned, to recognize the user of this website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for the user to use this website.
The user concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by the DESIGNLOVR GmbH website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the affected user deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of this website may be fully usable.
Hosting of the website
The website operated by DESIGNLOVR GmbH is hosted on the servers of the service provider ALL-INKL.COM - Neue Medien Münnich, Hauptstraße 68, 02742 Friedersdorf, Germany. The service provider's computer centre is located in Dresden, so that all customer data is stored exclusively in Germany. DESIGNLOVR GmbH has concluded a contract for processing the stored data. Further information and the applicable data protection regulations can be found at https://all-inkl.com/datenschutz.
Contact us by e-mail or contact form
Due to legal regulations, the website operated by DESIGNLOVR GmbH contains information that enables fast, electronic contact and direct communication with its employees, which also includes a general address for so-called electronic mail (e-mail address).
If a user contacts DESIGNLOVR GmbH by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the user concerned will be processed for processing the contact request and its handling in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) DS-GVO. This personal data is not passed on to third parties on a voluntary basis.
Subscription to the newsletter
The following notice is intended to clarify the contents of the DESIGNLOVR GmbH newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedure and the rights of objection. By subscribing to this newsletter, the user agrees to the receipt and the described procedures.
Use of the mail service provider MailChimp
The DESIGNLOVR GmbH newsletter is sent via MailChimp, a newsletter distribution platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.
Both the e-mail addresses of the newsletter users, as well as their further data described in the context of these notes, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information for sending and evaluating the newsletter on behalf of DESIGNLOVR GmbH. Furthermore, MailChimp can use this data according to its own information to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimize the sending and presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes, in order to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of DESIGNLOVR GmbH newsletter users to write them down or pass them on to third parties.
Contents of the newsletter
DESIGNLOVR GmbH only sends newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications containing advertising information (hereinafter “newsletters”) with the consent of the user or a legal permission. If the contents of a newsletter are specifically described within the scope of a registration, they are decisive for the consent of the users. Furthermore, this newsletter contains information about the digital economy and all its branches (this may include references to articles, advertisements, whitepapers or websites).
Double-Opt-In and logging
Registration for the DESIGNLOVR GmbH newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after registration the user receives an e-mail asking for confirmation of his registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can log in with other e-mail addresses. Subscriptions to the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with legal requirements. This includes the storage of the login and confirmation time, as well as the IP address. The user changes of the data stored in MailChimp are also logged.
To subscribe to the DESIGNLOVR GmbH newsletter, it is sufficient for the user to enter his e-mail address.
Statistical surveys and analyses
This newsletter contains a so-called “web-beacon”, i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the user's browser and system, as well as his IP address and time of retrieval are initially collected. This information is used to technically improve the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times.
The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither the ambition of DESIGNLOVR GmbH nor that of MailChimp to observe individual users. The evaluations serve much more to recognize the reading habits of the users and to adapt the contents of this newsletter to them or to send different contents according to the interests of the users.
Online access and data management
In this context, DESIGNLOVR GmbH points out that cookies are used on the websites of MailChimp and thus personal data by MailChimp, its partners and service providers (e.g. Google Analy
The use of external tools
On the website operated by DESIGNLOVR GmbH, external tools such as Google Analytics (with anonymisation function) or social media plugins are integrated in order to continuously improve this website and to give the user an opportunity to share good content with his network. In this respect DESIGNLOVR GmbH trusts the following external tools:
Use of Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)
Google Analytics (with anonymisation function) is integrated on the website operated by DESIGNLOVR GmbH. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data about the behavior of users of websites.
Among other things, a web analysis service collects data about the website from which an affected user came to a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for cost-benefit analysis of advertising.
The Google Analytics component is operated by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
DESIGNLOVR GmbH uses the suffix “_gat._anonymizeIp” for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, Google shortens and anonymizes the IP address of the Internet connection of the user concerned when accessing this website from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to this website. Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of this website in order to compile online reports for DESIGNLOVR GmbH which show the activities on these websites and to provide other services in connection with the use of this website.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the affected user. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of this website. Every time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the person responsible for processing and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the user concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the affected user, which serves Google, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission statements.
Cookies are used to store personal information, such as access time, the location from which access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the user concerned. Whenever you visit the DESIGNLOVR GmbH websites, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.
The affected user can prevent the setting of cookies by this website at any time, as already described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the user concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
Use of social media plugins
On the website operated by DESIGNLOVR GmbH so-called "sharing buttons" of social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Co. were integrated according to the "Shareiff method".
A social network is an Internet-based social meeting place, an online community that usually enables users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or enables the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. In general, a social network enables users to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friendship requests.
In contrast to the traditional integration of social media plugins, which meant that every user was immediately recorded by the social networks when visiting a website and, if necessary, his IP address and further browser behaviour were logged, DESIGNLOVR GmbH only uses shared buttons according to the Shareiff method on this website. This method ensures that no unconscious data transmission takes place between the social networks and the user concerned.
If an affected user clicks on a share button, a direct connection (in the form of a popup) is established with the respective network. DESIGNLOVR GmbH uses the following partial buttons on this website (including data protection declarations, which contain further information on the processing of data and, in some cases already mentioned here, possibilities of objection (so-called opt-out)):
The Share button of Facebook, Inc, 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA has been integrated into this website. The person responsible for the processing of personal data if a data subject lives outside the USA or Canada is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. The data policy published by Facebook, which is available at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook.
The Share button of Twitter, Inc, 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA has been integrated into this website. The data policy published by Twitter, which is available at https://twitter.com/privacy?lang=en, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Twitter.
The Share button of Google+, Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA has been integrated on this website. The data policy published by Google, which can be accessed at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Google. Further information from Google about the Google+1 button can be found at https://developers.google.com/+/web/buttons-policy.
The Share button of Pinterest, Inc, 808 Brannan Street, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA has been integrated into this website. The data policy published by Pinterest, which is available at https://about.pinterest.com/privacy-policy, provides information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by Pinterest.
The Share button of WhatsApp, Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland has been integrated into this website. The Data Protection Policy published by WhatsApp and available at https://www.whatsapp.com/legal/#privacy-policy provides information about WhatsApp's collection, processing and use of personal data.
Integration of third-party services and content
DESIGNLOVR GmbH sets within this website on the basis of justified interest (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of this website within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DS-GMO) content or service offerings of third parties to incorporate their content and services, such as videos or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as "content"). This always presupposes that the third party providers of this content perceive the IP address of the affected user, as they would not be able to send the content to their browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the display of this content. DESIGNLOVR GmbH makes every effort to use only content whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the content.
Third-party providers may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as "web beacons") for statistical or marketing purposes. Pixel tags" can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user's device and may include technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, visiting time and other information about the use of this website, and may also be linked to such information from other sources.
DESIGNLOVR GmbH uses the contents of the following third party providers within the scope of this website (including data protection declarations, which contain further information on the processing of data and, in some cases already mentioned here, possibilities of objection (so-called opt-out)):
Integration of Google Fonts
Integration of YouTube videos
This website includes videos from the YouTube platform of third-party provider Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Further details can be found in the data protection declaration at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/ Details on the opt-out can be found here: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/.
Integration of Instagram content
Integration of Pinterest content
Integration of Twitter content
Integration of Getty Images content
This website incorporates content from Getty Images, offered by Getty Images International, 1st Floor, The Herbert Building, The Park, Carrickmines, Dublin 18, Ireland.
Getty Images is an American stock agency. An image agency is a company that offers images and other image material on the market. Picture agencies usually market photographs, illustrations and film material. Via an image agency, various customers, in particular website operators, editorial offices of print and TV media and advertising agencies, license the images they use.
Getty Images allows you to embed stock images (for free if necessary). Embedding is the integration or integration of certain external content, such as text, video or image data, which is provided by an external website and then appears on your own website. A so-called embed code is used for embedding. An embed code is an HTML code that is integrated into a website by a website operator. If an embed code has been integrated by a website operator, the external content of the other website is displayed immediately as soon as a website is visited by default. To display the external content, the external content is loaded directly from the other website. Getty Images provides more information about embedding content at http://www.gettyimages.de/resources/embed
Through the technical implementation of the embed code, which allows images from Getty Images to be displayed, the IP address of the Internet connection through which the user accesses this website is transmitted to Getty Images. Getty Images also collects information about our website, the type of browser used, the browser language, the time and length of access. In addition, Getty Images may collect navigation information, i.e. information about which of our websites the affected person has visited and which links have been clicked on, as well as other interactions that the affected user has carried out when visiting this website. This data can be stored and evaluated by Getty Images.
Information on the use of affiliate programs
The website operated by DESIGNLOVR GmbH includes various offers and services from various partner and advertising programs (affiliate partners).
Affiliate marketing" is an Internet-supported form of distribution that enables commercial operators of Internet sites, so-called merchants or advertisers, to display advertising, which is usually remunerated via click or sale commissions, on the websites of third parties, i.e. sales partners who are also called affiliates or publishers. The merchant provides an advertising medium via the affiliate network, i.e. an advertising banner or other suitable means of Internet advertising, which are subsequently integrated into an affiliate's own website or advertised via other channels, such as keyword advertising or e-mail marketing.
DESIGNLOVR GmbH relies on the following partners for its affiliate activities (including data protection declarations, which contain further information on the processing of data and, in some cases already mentioned here, possibilities of objection (so-called opt-out)):
The Amazon partner program is operated by Amazon EU S.à.r.l, 5 Rue Plaetis, L-2338 Luxembourg, Luxembourg. Further information and the applicable data protection regulations can be found at https://www.amazon.de/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=3312401.

The components developed by the affiliate and advertising programs were designed with the aim of referring customers via advertisements, e.g. in the form of links to different websites against payment of a commission. DESIGNLOVR GmbH can generate advertising revenue by using the components.
As part of their affiliate programs, the partners set a cookie on the information technology system of the affected user. What cookies are has already been explained above. The tracking cookie does not store any personal data. Only the identification number of the affiliate, i.e. the partner referring potential customers, as well as the order number of the visitor of a website and the clicked advertising material are stored. The purpose of storing this data is to process commission payments between a merchant and the affiliate, which are processed via the affiliate network.
The affected user can prevent the setting of cookies by the DESIGNLOVR GmbH website at any time, as already described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent the partners from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the user concerned. In addition, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs.
