Joinville never stores any personal data from Users visiting the site or that are exposed to Advertiser’s ads in the ad network. Personal data are protected by the data protection directive of the EU. Joinville observe these regulations and thus respects the individual‘s right of personality and his/her right to protection of privacy. Joinville wants to justify the confidence the Users have in its online services and makes the ascertainment, processing and use of personal data transparent for its Users by giving them the following information.
1. Whilst visiting our website(s)
You can visit our website without providing personal information.
As a standard procedure, our web servers temporarily record the connection data of the enquiring computer, which of our web pages you visit, the date and duration of the visit, the identification data of the browser and operating system used as well as the website from which you reach us.
We may use tracking software to determine the frequency of use and the number of Users of our website. This software is not used to collect personal data or IP addresses. The data is used exclusively in anonymous and summarized form for statistical purposes and for the development of the website. No other personal data – such as your name, your address, your telephone number or e-mail address – is collected, unless you provide this information voluntarily. We also collect further personal data if you conclude a contract with us and register via our website in this respect or in connection with any such contract. The personal data collected in this context can be seen from the registration form that we provide via our website.
2. Whilst interacting with advertising managed by us.
Joinville serve ads in favor of advertisers (clients) in various channels such as Google (Doubleclick) Ad Network(s) and in Joinville’s own network of associated websites. In mere advertising contacts with the User (e. g. serving banner impressions on a website) Joinville does not automatically collect or process any personal data. Only non-personal data – such as information on the server via which the User has logged on to the Internet, the browser which is used and if the User clicks on the banner – all this is recorded anonymously. No data is collected by Joinville to conduct online behavioral advertising.
However, the information is used to make real-time decisions on suitable ads for the User given our advertisers’ and medias’ preferences and advertising objectives.
The cookies might be used for:
- Frequency capping (limits the numbers of times a User gets exposed to a specific ad campaign).
All cookie-based targeting (except frequency capping) can be opted out from by following these links:
Please note, however, that when so doing you must reckon with restricted presentation of the site and limited User guidance. If you need any help with this, please contact us at the email address below.
THIRD PARTY WEB SITES
Joinville are bound by law to take the technical and organizational measures which are necessary to guarantee the protection of the personal data, i. e. in particular to protect these data from unauthorized access and unauthorized processing. All data processing programs and facilities have password protection and operate using encoding technology which is present state of the art.
If Joinville use any external server or service provider for the storage of the User data, Joinville will make sure that they are committed to at least the same data protection standard as Joinville themselves. The employees of Joinville are obligated to preserve data secrecy and data protection. This obligation includes, among other things, the fact that the employees may only process and use the personal data to such an extent which is necessary within the scope of contractual or quasi-contractual relationships, or in so far as the User has given his consent to the use of his/her data for the respective purposes. Any personal data which are no longer needed for the fulfillment of contractual obligations by Joinville and/or for the processing and use of which there is no (more) consent from User, will be deleted in such a way that any abuse can be ruled out. In certain cases prescribed by law (e.g. statutory periods of keeping), Users’ data can be blocked instead of being deleted.
