17. Cookies 

(1) We use cookies on our website and in our mobile app. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard drive and are assigned to the browser used by you or your operating system and in doing so provide us with certain information.  

We also use so-called counting pixels. When you visit our website, image or text files are retrieved that allow us to obtain specific information and, in particular, to track your usage behaviour on our website. Counting pixels differ from cookies technically, in particular, but they also require consent, if necessary. In this respect, the term “cookies” in this Data Protection Declaration also includes pixels.

There are first-party and third-party cookies. They are first-party cookies if they are set by the operator of the website as the controller for the processing of data or by a data processor engaged by the controller. Third-party cookies are set and read by other controllers, i.e. not by the website operator or its data processors.

There are also transient and persistent cookies. Transient cookies are cookies that are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Persistent cookies remain on the device for a specific period of time even after the browser is closed.

Depending on the function, cookies are either consent-free or require consent. Consent-free cookies are those that are absolutely necessary so that the provider of a service can render the service desired by the user. Furthermore, cookies are also consent-free if they only serve to carry out the transfer of information within an electronic communication network. Other cookies are cookies that require consent.

If and to the extent to which consent is required for the use of certain cookies, these cookies will only be set if you have consented to this. We display a so-called “consent banner” to you on our website. By pressing the button provided, you can consent to the use of all cookies listed in this Data Protection Declaration. You can also perform a custom selection of cookies by checking the “Preferences”, “Statistics”, and “Marketing” boxes. You can also change the selections you have made at a later time.

18. Google Analytics 

On our website and in our mobile app, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”).

The information generated by the cookie about your use of our services is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Through the activation of IP anonymisation on our website and in our mobile app, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google, however, within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of WeWash, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our services in order to compile reports about the app and website activities and to provide additional services connected with the app and website use and internet use to WeWash.

To deactivate the collection within the mobile app, in the app after successful login, you can find a check box in the “My Profile” menu item in the “Settings” section, which allows you to switch the approval of anonymised usage statistics on or off to improve the app.

We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our services. We can improve our offering through the statistics obtained and make it more interesting for you as a user.

Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield for the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 lit. a GDPR.

For more information on terms of use and data protection, see https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or under https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/. We would like to point out that Google Analytics has expanded the code “ga(‘set’,‘anonymizeIp’,true)” to ensure an anonymous recording of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). As a result, IP addresses are processed further in shortened form and direct reference to persons can therefore be excluded.

The use of Google Analytics takes place in accordance with the prerequisites on which the German data protection authorities reached agreement with Google. Information from the third-party provider: Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001.

19. Use of Google RecAPTCHA

We use Google RecAPTCHA to review and avoid interactions on our website by automated or automatic access, in particular by so-called bots. This is a service of Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (Google).

For this, Google collects and analyses from which IP address a request is sent. In addition to your IP address, additional information, in particular for your location, may be collected by Google, which is necessary for this service.

Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield for the cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

20. Use of Google Adwords

(1) We use the service from Google Adwords to draw attention to our attractive offers by means of advertising media (so-called Google Adwords) on external websites. In relation to the data of the advertising campaigns, we can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are. We are therefore interested in displaying to you advertising that is of interest to you to make our website more interesting and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs.

(2) These advertising media are delivered by Google via so-called “ad servers”. For this purpose, we use ad server cookies to measure the specific parameters for success measurement, such as Display of the advertisements or clicks by the users. If you access our website via a Google ad, a cookie is stored on your PC by Google Adwords. These cookies generally lose their validity after 30 days and should not serve to identify you personally. As analysis values, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wants to be contacted) are usually stored for this cookie.

These cookies enable Google to recognise your internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of the website of an Adwords customer and the cookie stored on his computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognise that the user has clicked on the display and has been forwarded to this page. Each Adwords customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be traced across the websites of Adwords customers. We do not collect and process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures ourselves. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. Based on these evaluations, we can recognise which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive further data from the use of the advertising media, in particular we cannot identify users based on this information.

If you are registered with a Google service, Google can associate your visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is the possibility that the provider will find out and store your IP address.

(4) You can prevent participation in this tracking method in addition to the procedure described in Clause 17 (consent via the consent banner) in different ways a) by a corresponding setting of your browser software, in particular the suppression of third-party cookies results you not receiving any ads from third-party providers; b) by deactivating the cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser so that cookies from the domain “www.googleadservices.com”, https://www.google.de/settings/ads are blocked, wherein this setting is deleted if you delete your cookies; c) by disabling the interest-related display of the providers which are part of the self-regulatory campaign “About Ads”, via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices, wherein this setting is deleted if you delete your cookies; d) by permanent deactivation in your browsers Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome under the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin.

24. Use of Plista

We use the marketing service of the company plista GmbH, Torstraße 33, 10119 Berlin. With the aid of plista, we place advertising on websites within the plista network. In order to be able to exploit usage-based advertising, plista collects information on the usage behaviour of website visitors on all websites of the plista partner network (so-called usage data) using cookies and summarises these with a random identification sign assigned by plista (so-called cookie ID) into usage profiles. However, our website does not belong to the plista network, which is why no cookie is set to create an ID when our website is visited. However, in order to track the effectiveness of our advertising measures, we set a cookie (a pixel), which allows plista to collect information in order to send us aggregated and anonymous reports of advertising activities and information about how you interact with our website.

25. Newsletter 

If you opt for our newsletter service, we will inform you about our current offers via the email address you stipulated. You can only receive the newsletter if you specify a valid email address. For legal reasons, a confirmation email in the double opt-in procedure is sent to the e-mail address entered by you for the first time for the newsletter dispatch. This confirmation email serves to check whether you have actually authorised the receipt of the newsletter as the holder of the e-mail address.

When registering for the newsletter, we also save the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) to the computer system used by the data subject as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later point in time and therefore serves the legal protection of the person responsible for processing. The legal basis for the collection of your data and the sending of the newsletter is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

The personal data collected in the context of a registration to the newsletter will be used exclusively to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers of the newsletter may be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service, e.g. in the event of changes to the newsletter service or in the change of the technical circumstances.

The newsletter is sent via “MailChimp”, a newsletter dispatch platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. The e-mail addresses and data further described under this clause are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information for shipping and for the evaluation of the newsletter on our behalf. In addition, MailChimp can use this data to optimise or improve its own services, e.g. for technical optimisation of the shipping and presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes to determine from which countries the recipients come from. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them themselves or to forward them to third parties.

We trust the reliability and IT and data security of MailChimp. MailChimp is certified under the US EU data protection agreement “Privacy Shield” and agrees to comply with the EU data protection requirements. In addition, we have concluded a contract for order processing with MailChimp. This is a contract in which MailChimp is obliged to protect the data of our users in accordance with our data protection provisions on our behalf and in particular not to pass it on to third parties. You can view the data privacy policy of MailChimp view under the following link: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/

If you do not wish to receive any more newsletters from us later, you can object to this at any time without incurring any costs for this other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. A notification in text form (e.g. e-mail, letter) to datenschutz@we-wash.com or the contact data specified in Clause 27 is sufficient for this.

    • the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 lit. f GDPR is required for asserting, exercising or defending legal claims and is not a reason for which you have a disproportionate interest in the non-disclosure of your data,
    • in the case that there is a legal obligation for the disclosure under Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 lit. c GDPR, as well as
