B. General information

I. Scope and processing of personal data

As a matter of principle, we collect and use personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website and our contents and services. If this is not the case, personal data is regularly only used with the user's consent. An exception is made in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

II. Legal basis of the processing

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Article 6 (1) (a) of the EU Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis.

Article 6 paragraph 1 letter b DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

If vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6 paragraph 1 letter d DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing. The legitimate interest of our company lies in the performance of our business activities.

III. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

We process and store personal data of the person concerned only as long as this is necessary to achieve the purpose of storage. In addition, data may be stored for as long as the European or national legislator has provided for this in EU ordinances, laws or other regulations to which the person responsible for processing is subject. As soon as the storage purpose ceases to apply or a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned regulations expires, the personal data is routinely blocked or deleted.

IV. Security of your data

We use the common SSL (Secure Socket Layer) procedure within the website visit in connection with the highest encryption level supported by your browser. Usually this is a 256 bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. You can tell whether an individual page of our website is being transmitted in encrypted form by the closed display of the key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser.

We also use appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.

C. User data

I. Log-Files

1. Description and scope of data collection

Every time the website is accessed, we or the site provider collect data and information through an automated system. These are stored in the log files of the server.

The following data can be collected:

Information about the browser type and the version used
The user's operating system
The user's Internet service provider
The IP address of the user
Date and time of access
Websites from which the user's system reaches our website (referrer)
Web pages that are accessed by the user's system via our website

  •  

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest follows from the data collection purposes listed in the next subsection. Under no circumstances will we use the data collected for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person.

3. Purpose of data processing

Temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user's computer. For this purpose, the user's IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session.

The processing and storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website, to optimize our website, to ensure a comfortable use, to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

These purposes also include our legitimate interest in data processing in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 letter f DSG-VO.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose of their collection. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session is ended.

4. Duration of storage

In the case of data storage in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. A storage beyond that is possible. In this case the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

5. Possibility of objection and removal

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. There is therefore no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

II. Use of cookies

So-called cookies are used on our pages. Cookies are small text files that are stored for the duration of your browser session in the cache of your Internet browser (so-called session cookies) or for a fixed duration (so-called permanent cookies) on your hard drive. The cookies enable the recognition of the Internet browser, so that you can be provided with quicker and more targeted content tailored to your needs and wishes during future visits to our website. We therefore use technically necessary cookies in order to be able to offer our legitimate interest in providing a website tailored to the wishes of our visitors. The cookies do not store any personal data.

If we want to use marketing, tracking or analysis cookies in addition to the technically necessary cookies, your prior explicit consent is required. We request this via the cookie banner that appears on our website at the start of use, which informs you about our cookie policy and gives you the option of refusing or granting your consent for all or certain types of cookies.

If you give us your consent, the legal basis for the processing of personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

You can also use the following link to change your cookie settings or revoke the consent you have given:

Show Cookies Settings

We use the Content Management System (CMS) MODX. MODX uses session cookies, which should make the use of our offer more pleasant for you and enable us to understand that you have already visited individual pages of our website. These are automatically deleted after leaving our site.

The data processed by essential cookies are necessary for the above-mentioned purposes in order to safeguard our legitimate interests and those of third parties in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f DSGVO.

Furthermore, cookies are set on our website by Google Analytics, Google Adwords Conversion Tracking, Facebook, reCAPTCHA and Google Maps. Please read more about this in the corresponding sections.

How can I prevent the storage of cookies?

You can set your browser to only accept cookies if you agree to this. You can delete existing cookies. However, deactivating cookies may limit the usability of our website. You can find information on how to deactivate cookies under the following LINK (wikihow.com).

III. Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (hereinafter "Google"). Google (Universal) Analytics also uses cookies.

Their express consent is required for the use of Google (Universal) Analytics. For this purpose, you have the possibility at the beginning of the usage process to refuse or grant your consent via the cookie banner and to inform yourself about the data protection rules of our company.

If you give us your consent, the legal basis for the processing of personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

You can revoke your consent at any time and without giving reasons. For this purpose, please send an e-mail to: mail@equus-design-products.com. In the imprint you will find further contact data to which you can send the revocation.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. On our website we use IP-anonymisation, which means that your IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states which are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google is committed to complying with the EU-US Privacy Shield Agreement on the collection, use and storage of personal data from EU member states, as published by the US Department of Commerce, and holds a Privacy Shield Certificate accordingly.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser software accordingly. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website to Google and the processing of the data by Google by using the browser plugin, which you can find under the following link

For more information about Google Analytics' terms of use and privacy policy, please visit http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or under https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/.

IV. Use of Adwords Conversion Tracking

In order to record the use of our website statistically and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our website for you, we also use Google Conversion Tracking. Google Adwords sets a cookie (see item II) on your computer, if you have reached our website via a Google ad. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If you visit one of our pages while the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that you have clicked on the ad and have been redirected to this page.

Every Adwords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked through the websites of Adwords clients. The information collected through the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for Adwords clients who have opted for conversion tracking. We learn the total number of users who clicked on our ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not receive information that personally identifies you as a user.

For the use of Google Conversion Tracking your explicit consent is required. For this purpose, you have the possibility at the beginning of the usage process to refuse or grant your consent via the cookie banner and to inform yourself about the data protection rules of our company.

If you give us your consent, the legal basis for the processing of personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

You can revoke your consent at any time and without giving reasons. For this purpose, please send an e-mail to: mail@equus-design-products.com. In the imprint you will find further contact data to which you can send the revocation.

V. Integration of reCAPTCHA

On this website we use the services of reCAPTCHA. This enables us to ensure that inquiries sent to us via the contact form come from real people and not from bots and to provide sufficient data security when submitting forms.

By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding subpage of our website. Irrespective of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists, this data is transmitted to Google. Google stores your data as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) for the purpose of providing need-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right.

For the use of reCAPTCHA your explicit consent is required. For this purpose, you have the possibility at the beginning of the usage process to refuse or grant your consent via the cookie banner and to inform yourself about the data protection rules of our company.

If you give us your consent, the legal basis for the processing of personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

You can revoke your consent at any time and without giving reasons. For this purpose, please send an e-mail to: mail@equus-design-products.com. In the imprint you will find further contact data to which you can send the revocation.

For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the provider's privacy policy. There you will also find further information about your rights and settings to protect your privacy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de. Google also processes your personal data in the USA and is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

VI. Integration of Google Maps

On this website we use the offer of Google Maps. This allows us to display interactive maps directly on the website and enables you to use the map function conveniently.

By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the data mentioned under § 3 of this declaration is transmitted. This happens regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in at Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not want the assignment with your profile at Google, you have to log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide need-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right.

Their express consent is required for the use of Google Maps. For this purpose, you have the possibility at the beginning of the usage process to refuse or grant your consent via the cookie banner and to inform yourself about the data protection rules of our company.

If you give us your consent, the legal basis for the processing of personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

You can revoke your consent at any time and without giving reasons. For this purpose, please send an e-mail to: mail@equus-design-products.com. In the imprint you will find further contact data to which you can send the revocation.

For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the provider's privacy policy. There you will also find further information about your rights and settings to protect your privacy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de. Google also processes your personal data in the USA and is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

VI. Use of social media plug-ins

We currently use a social media plug-in from Facebook. We use the so-called two-click solution. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is initially passed on to Facebook. You can recognize Facebook by the mark on the box, by its initial letter or logo. We give you the opportunity to communicate directly with Facebook via the button. Only if you click on the marked box and thereby activate it will Facebook receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online offer. According to its own information, Facebook in Germany anonymizes the IP address immediately after the survey. By activating the plug-in, personal data is transferred from you to Facebook and stored there (in the USA). Since Facebook uses cookies to collect data, we recommend that you delete all cookies via your browser's security settings before clicking on the grayed-out box.

We have no influence on the collected data and data processing procedures, nor are we aware of the full scope of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We also have no information about the deletion of the collected data by the plug-in provider.

The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the purpose of presenting need-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Facebook to exercise this right. Via the plug-ins we offer you the possibility to interact with us and other users via Facebook, so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. For us, the legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.

The data is passed on regardless of whether you have an account on Facebook and are logged in there. If you are logged in to Facebook, the data we collect from you will be assigned directly to your Facebook account. If you click on the activated button and, for example, link the page, Facebook will also store this information in your user account and publicly share it with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as this will allow you to avoid being assigned to your profile with the plug-in provider.

For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by Facebook, please refer to the privacy statement provided below. There you will also find further information about your rights and settings to protect your privacy.

Facebook Inc., 1601 S California Ave, Palo Alto, California 94304, USA; http://www.facebook.com/policy.php; further information on data collection: http://www.facebook.com/help/186325668085084 and https://www.facebook.com/about/basics. Facebook has submitted to the EU-US privacy shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework

 

D. Your personal data (inventory data)

I. What are "personal data"?

Personal data is information about your person which allows conclusions to be drawn about your identity or which relates directly or indirectly to your person, e.g. your name, your address or your telephone number. Information that does not allow conclusions to be drawn about a specific or determinable person is not included.

II. How to contact us

On the website there is a contact form that can be used for electronic contact. To use the contact form, please enter your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, subject and message so that we can process and answer your request accordingly. The provision of a contact form serves on the one hand to carry out pre-contractual measures, e.g. if you would like to arrange a consultation appointment for the planning of a riding facility or request a project analysis, and on the other hand it serves our legitimate interests, as it gives us more opportunities to get in contact with you. Alternatively, you can contact us via the provided e-mail address (mail@equus-design-products.com), possible by telephone or to our address. If the data subject contacts the controller through one of these channels, the personal data transmitted by the data subject shall be automatically recorded. The storage is solely for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. The data will not be passed on to third parties. The data is used to carry out pre-contractual measures (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DS-GVO) and on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f. DS-GVO). We have an interest in providing our visitors with as many contact channels as possible and in responding to them quickly.

 

III. Forwarding to other websites

In order to increase our range of services, you will find links on our website to other websites for which other providers are responsible. To what extent our advertising partners collect personal data, please refer to their data protection declarations. You can recognize the link by the fact that a new browser window opens and a new address is displayed in the browser line.

 

IV. Transfer of data to third parties

Apart from the circumstances already described, we will only pass on your personal data to third parties if:

you have given your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter a DSGVO,
in the event that there is a legal obligation for disclosure under Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c DSGVO,
this is required under Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter b DSGVO for the processing of contractual relationships or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures,
the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f DSGVO is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in not disclosing your data,

Your data will not be forwarded to third parties for advertising purposes.

in accordance with Art. 16 DSGVO, to immediately request the correction of incorrect or incomplete personal data stored by us;

pursuant to Art. 18 DSGVO, to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data, if the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, if the processing is unlawful but you refuse to have it deleted and we no longer require the data, but you require it for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims, or if, pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO; if the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, the data may be processed only with your consent or for the purpose of exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or a Member State, and you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted;
in accordance with Art. 20 DSGVO to receive your personal data that you have provided us with in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request that it be transferred to another responsible party, provided that the freedoms and rights of others are not affected thereby.

in accordance with Art. 7 Para. 3 DSGVO to revoke your once given consent to us at any time. As a result, we are not allowed to continue the data processing, which was based on this consent, for the future;
not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, pursuant to Art. 22 DSGVO, which has legal effect vis-à-vis you or significantly affects you in a similar way, unless the decision is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and us, is authorised by Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject and such law contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests or is taken with your express consent. These decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data according to Art. 9 Par. 1 DS-GVO, unless Art. 9 Par. 2 lit. a or g applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests;
complain to a supervisory authority in accordance with Art. 77 DSGVO. As a rule, you can turn to the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence or workplace or our headquarters.
