The legal basis for processing your personal data in order to perform a contract between you and it-novum is Article 6 paragraph 1 point (b) EU-GDPR. 1 lit. b EU-DSGVO as the legal basis. That also applies to processing activities required to take steps prior to entering into a contract.
If processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation on the part of it-novum, the legal basis for that is Article 6 paragraph 1 point (c) EU-GDPR. 1 lit. c EU-DSGVO as the legal basis.
If vital interests of the data subject or another natural person necessitate processing of personal data, the legal basis for that is Article 6 paragraph 1 point (d) EU-GDPR. 1 lit. d EU-DSGVO as the legal basis.

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

it-novum GmbH uses a chat software of the company Userlike UG, Probsteigasse 44-46, 50670 Cologne, Germany. You can use the chat like a contact form to chat with our staff in near real time. When starting the chat, the following personal data is collected:
- Date and time of the call,
- Browser type/version,
- IP address,
- used operating system,
- URL of the previously visited web page,
- Amount of data sent.
- And if specified: First name, last name, and email address.
Depending on the course of the conversation with our employees, further personal data may arise in the chat, which will be entered by you. The nature of this data depends heavily on your request or the problem you are describing to us. The purpose of processing all this data is to provide you with a quick and efficient way to contact us and thus improve our customer service.
All our employees have been and will be trained on the subject of data protection and taught how to handle customer data securely and confidentially. All our employees are bound to confidentiality and have accordingly signed an addendum in their employee contracts committing them to maintain confidentiality and observe data protection.
In addition, it-novum GmbH stores the history of the chats for a period of 100 days. This serves the purpose of sparing you extensive explanations about the history of your inquiry under certain circumstances as well as for the constant quality control of our chat offer. The processing is therefore necessary pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter f DSGVO allowed. If you do not wish to do so, please feel free to let us know. Saved chats will then be deleted by us immediately.
The storage of chat data also serves the purpose of ensuring the security of our information technology systems. This is also our legitimate interest, which is why the processing according to Art. 6 para. 1 letter f DSGVO is permissible.

Google Analytics Remarketing
Our websites use the features of Google Analytics Remarketing combined with the cross-device capabilities of Google AdWords and DoubleClick. This service is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
This feature makes it possible to link target audiences for promotional marketing created with Google Analytics Remarketing to the cross-device capabilities of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. This allows advertising to be displayed based on your personal interests, identified based on your previous usage and surfing behavior on one device (e.g. your mobile phone), on other devices (such as a tablet or computer).
Once you have given your consent, Google will associate your web and app browsing history with your Google Account for this purpose. That way, any device that signs in to your Google Account can use the same personalized promotional messaging.
To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated IDs of users that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create audiences for cross-device ad promotion.
You can permanently opt out of cross-device remarketing/targeting by turning off personalized advertising in your Google Account; follow this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.
The aggregation of the data collected in your Google Account data is based solely on your consent, which you may give or withdraw from Google per Art. 6 (1) letter (a) EU-GDPR. For data collection operations not merged into your Google Account (for example, because you do not have a Google Account or have objected to the merge), the collection of data is based on Art. 6 (1) letter (f) EU-GDPR. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing anonymous user behavior for promotional purposes.
Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking
This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).
As part of Google AdWords, we use so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad served by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is set. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser stores on your computer. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification of the user. Should the user visit certain pages of the website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the website can tell that the user clicked on the ad and proceeded to that page.
Each Google AdWords advertiser has a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked using the website of an AdWords advertiser. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for the AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, advertisers do not obtain any information that can be used to personally identify users. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can opt-out of this by easily disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie by changing your browser settings. In doing so, you will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
Conversion cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) letter (f) EU-GDPR. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising.
If you would like to receive our newsletter, we require a valid email address as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified email address and that you agree to receive this newsletter. No additional data is collected or is only collected on a voluntary basis. We only use this data to send the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.
We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1) letter (a) EU-GDPR. You can revoke consent to the storage of your data and email address as well as their use for sending the newsletter at any time, e.g. through the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.
The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be used to distribute the newsletter until you cancel your subscription when said data will be deleted. Data we have stored for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members area) remain unaffected.
8. Plugins and tools
Our website uses plugins from YouTube, which is operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
If you visit one of our pages featuring a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. Here the YouTube server is informed about which of our pages you have visited.
If you’re logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube allows you to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
YouTube is used to help make our website appealing. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) letter (f) EU-GDPR. 1 lit. f GDPR.
