Purposes and legal basis of Processing

1. Scope of processing

In principle, we process personal data only insofar as this is necessary to provide a functioning website and our content and services.

GDPR art. 6(1)(a)-(b), (f).
If the processing is based on your consent, you may at any time withdraw your consent by contacting us using the contact information in clause 1.

Informative visit to our website

In cases of purely informational use of the website, in other words, if you do not register or otherwise submit information to us, we only collect the personal data that your browser sends to our server.
If you wish to look at our website, we process the following data, which are technically necessary for us to show you our website and ensure its stability and security.

3. Data processed

We collect such technical information in so-called “log files”, so that you can display our website correctly and we can identify the causes of any technical problems, for the technical optimization of our websites and for the purpose of the security of our computer systems and networks. For these purposes, the legal basis is legitimate interest in the processing of data according to GDPR art. 6(1)(f).
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of its collection. Typically, this technical information will be erased or rendered unrecognizable at the latest after seven days.

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is essential for the operation of the website.

This website uses various technologies to collect and save data for purposes of marketing and optimization.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google LLC (“Google”). The information produced by the cookie when you use this website is, as a rule, transmitted to a Google server and saved there. As part of the IP anonymization, your IP address will first be truncated by Google within an EU Member State or another country that is party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to put together reports about website activities, and to provide further services connected to use of the website and the Internet to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of using Google Analytics will not be combined with other data maintained by Google.

We use cookies on our websites. Cookies are small text files that can be placed on your hard drive when you visit a website. These text files are created and sent to you by the web server with which you have made a connection through your web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome). Cookies cannot run any programs or infect your computer with viruses. Their purpose is to make your whole Internet service more user-friendly and effective.

5. Recipients of personal data:

For the operation of our website and for the provision of personalized services, Sakata also employs subsidiaries from the Sakata group or external service providers who support us in processing orders, operating the website, providing personalized services and providing information to customers. These companies may only use your personal data in fulfilling their tasks on our behalf and are obligated to comply with the relevant data protection regulations.
Transmission of personal data to state institutions and authorities takes place only in accordance with binding national legal provisions or if legal or criminal proceedings require them to be passed on. They will not be passed on for any other purposes.

6. Transmission to third countries

Personal data that we process in the context of the procedures described above are also transmitted by us to recipients within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 9 GDPR, who process your personal data outside the territory of the European Union. In that regard, a transmission to and subsequent processing of your personal data takes place also in third countries, for which there is no adequacy decision of the European Commission. We have therefore ensured the appropriate protection of your personal data with the relevant recipients through “suitable guarantees” (Article 46 GDPR), by concluding standard contractual clauses, as far as no derogation applies. You can request a copy of these warranties from us (contact details under No. 1/2).

7. Retention period

In general, we will only store your data for as long as is necessary to perform a service that you have requested or to which you have consented. If there are statutory retention periods, your data will be stored in accordance with these legal specifications.

8. Your rights as a data subject

You have the following rights in relation to us regarding your personal data as far as the respective legal requirements are met:
  • Right of access,
  • Right to rectification,
  • Right to deletion,
  • Right to restriction of data processing,
  • Right to data portability.

Right to object

Individual right to object

You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning you which is based on Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions. We will then no longer process the personal data for those purposes unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Right to object to processing for direct marketing purposes

In some cases we may process your data for direct marketing. You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data for those purposes at any time. This applies to profiling as far as it is associated with such direct marketing. If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, your personal data will not be processed for those purposes any longer.
  • Withdrawal of consent: If you gave your consent to the processing of your personal data you can withdraw your consent at any time with future effect. The lawfulness of the processing of your personal data until your withdrawal will not be affected.
If you wish to exercise these rights, please contact us under the contact details mentioned above.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority, particularly one in the member state of your habitual residence, work place or the place of the suspected violation, if in your opinion the processing of your personal data is unlawful.

9. External Links

Our online service occasionally contains links that lead to the websites of third parties. If this is not easily recognizable, we indicate that it is an external link. Sakata has no influence on the content or form of the websites of external providers. This Privacy Policy therefore has no relevance there.

Storage and deletion of your data

We delete or block the personal data of the data subject as soon as the purpose of the storage is fulfilled. It may also be stored if provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or regulations to which our company is subject (see details in sections 3.1-3.3). Blocking or deletion of the data also takes place when a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for conclusion of a contract or fulfillment of the contract.

3.1. Data Retention Policy

Due to tax regulations, Account Data will be retained for up to five full fiscal years from your cancellation of your Cookiebot CMP account.
Configuration Data and System Generated Data will be erased immediately when you cancel the Cookiebot CMP account.
End User Data will be erased on an ongoing basis after 12 months from registration, and immediately when you cancel the Cookiebot CMP account.

3.2 Data Retention for Compliance with Legal Requirements

You may not require Usercentrics to change any of the default retention periods, except for the reasons for erasure pursuant to clause 3.3, but you may suggest changes for compliance with specific sector laws and regulations.

3.3 Data Restitution and/or Deletion

No data except Account Data will be retained after the termination of the Agreement. You may request a data copy before termination. You must not cancel the Cookiebot CMP account until the data copy has been delivered, as Usercentrics will not otherwise be able to deliver the data copy.

10. Amendments to this Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to change or revise this Privacy Policy from time to time. In this regard, please note the current version of our Privacy Policy.
