1. Subject of data protection
Personal data is defined as the individual details concerning the personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes information such as the name, postal address, email address and telephone number. Personal data does not include information that is not directly connected to a person’s actual identity (such as a user’s preferred websites or the number of users on a website). Company-related data is defined as any information and details that can be attributed specifically to your company, including information classed as confidential.
2. Collection and use of your data
2.1. Collection and use of personal and company-related data
We only use the personal data that you enter in order to provide you with the desired products and services, or for other purposes for which you have given your consent, insofar as there are no statutory obligations that stipulate otherwise.
Customers within the meaning of this Data Privacy Statement are all users who use squarelovin free of charge or for a fee.
Where there is the option of entering personal data on our website, we draw your attention to the fact that only the marked mandatory fields need to be completed in order to process enquiries and execute contracts. Any other information is given voluntarily and is used by us to optimise our offering and, where applicable, for analytical and statistical purposes.
2.1.1 Instagram functions
The purpose of Squarelovin is to optimise your Instagram profile. In order to use the functions of squarelovin, you must connect to your account with Instagram Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA via your user account. As with all your personal and company-related data, we treat the Instagram login details that you transmit to us in this way as strictly confidential and will on no account pass these details on to third parties.
When you subscribe to our newsletter, your email address will be used for our promotional purposes until such time as you unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time on our website or via a link in the newsletter.
Neither we nor persons commissioned by us will ever make your personal data available to third parties unless this is undertaken within the context of executing the contract, you have given your consent for us to do so or there is an official order to do so.
2.2 Automated data collection
You can generally use our website without having to disclose any personal data.
When accessing our website, your web browser automatically transmits data for technical reasons. The following data is stored separately from other data that you may send us:
- Date and time of access
- IP address
- Browser type/version
- Operating system used
- URL of the website visited previously
- Amount of data sent.
Although the aforementioned data may make it possible to identify you, we do not use the data to do so. The data is stored for technical reasons only, is used exclusively for statistical purposes as set out below and is at no point attributed to a specific person or company. Insofar as data is passed on to external service providers, we have put technical and organisational measures in place to ensure compliance with data protection provisions.
2.4 Google Analytics
2.5 Social plugins
We use the following social plugins on our website. They are usually identifiable by the relevant provider’s network logo, sometimes accompanied by a pictogram. The way social plugins normally work is that every visitor to a website is immediately recorded by these services, along with the visitor’s IP address, and any further activities undertaken by the visitor on the Internet are logged. This happens even if the user in question does not click on a relevant social plugin button.
2.5.1 Use of the Shariff application
In order to prevent this from happening, we use the application Shariff. With Shariff, the social plugins used on our website only establish direct contact between the operator of the social network and the visitor to our website if the website visitor actively clicks on the relevant social plugin button. Further information on Shariff is available at: http://m.heise.de/ct/artikel/Shariff-Social-Media-Buttons-mit-Datenschutz-2467514.html
2.5.2 Facebook plugin (Like button)
Plugins provided by social network Facebook (Facebook Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California, 94025, USA) are integrated on our website. You can identify the Facebook plugins on our website by the Facebook logo or the “Like” button. An overview of the Facebook plugins is available here: . When you visit our website, the plugin establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. In this way, Facebook receives the information that you have visited our website using your IP address. If you click the Facebook “Like” button while logged into your Facebook account, you can link the content on our website to your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to then assign the visit to our website to your user account. Please note that, as the provider of the website, we have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted or of Facebook’s use of said data. Further information on this subject can be found in Facebook’s Data Policy at . If you do not want Facebook to be able to assign the visit to our website to your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook user account.

Provided that the statutory requirements are met, you have the right to the correction, blocking or deletion of this data.
