1 General information on the collection of personal data and contact data of the responsible persons
Beacon Invest Group GmbH
In order to keep security holes as small as possible, the website uses SSL or rather TLS encryption. Nevertheless, we point out that Internet-based data transmission has security holes, and seamless protection against attacks by third parties is therefore impossible.
It is not possible to use our site without giving personal data. There may be different rules for using individual services of our website, which are explained separately in that case in the following. To that extent, the following rules inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the collection, use and processing of personal data by the responsible persons.
2 Server data
For technical reasons, the following data, among others, which is transmitted to us or alternatively our webspace provider by your Internet browser, is recorded (so-called server log files): - browser type and version
- operating system used
- website from which you visited us (referrer URL)
- website that you visited
- date and time of your access
- your Internet protocol (IP) address.
This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal data that you may give, the data therefore cannot be used to deduce information about a specific person. It is evaluated for statistical purposes to assure our Internet presence, the security, stability and functionality of the website and to be able to optimise our offers.
We use so-called cookies on our site to recognise the multiple use of our offer by the same user/Internet connection owner. Cookies are small text files that your Internet browser creates and stores on your computer. They are used to optimise our website and offers. They are mostly so-called “session cookies” that are deleted again at the end of your visit.
However, these cookies sometimes provide information in order to recognise you again automatically. This recognition is based on the IP address stored in the cookies. That way it is possible for us to optimise our offers and enable you to have easier access to our site. This partly also applies to our partner companies/advertising partners (cookies from third party providers) that help to make the Internet presence more interesting. Information on cookies from third party providers is provided in the following in individual paragraphs.
You can prevent the installation of cookies by configuring your browser accordingly; however, we point out that in this case you might not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. The settings differ from browser to browser, which is why we ask you to look this up in the help information of your browser.
4 Registration function
We offer you the possibility to register yourself on our website. Data entered during the course of this registration, which is evident from the input screen of the registration form, is collected and stored exclusively for the use of our offer. When you register on our site, we also store your IP address and the date as well as the time of your registration. This is used as protection on our part in case a third party misuses your data and registers on our website with this data without your knowledge. No data is forwarded to third parties. There is also no comparison of data collected that way to data that is possibly collected by us through other components of our site. Upon deletion of the registered account, your data is also deleted.
5 Web analysis services
We use Google Analytics on our website. It is a web analysis service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, subsequently referred to as “Google”. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer and that way enable an analysis of your use of the website.
The information generated by these cookies, for example the time, place and frequency of your website visit including your IP address, is transferred to Google in the USA where it is stored.
We use Google Analytics on our website with an IP anonymization function. In this case, your IP address is truncated and thereby anonymized by Google in member countries of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area,
Google will use this information for evaluating your usage of our website, for compiling reports about the website activities for us, and for providing further services in connection with website usage and Internet usage. Google may also supply this information to third parties, provided this is regulated by law, or to the extent that third parties process this data on behalf of Google.
According to its own information, in no event will Google associate your IP address with other data of Google. You can prevent installation of the cookies by configuring your browser software accordingly; however, we point out that you might not be able to use all the functions of our website to their full extent in this case.
Furthermore, Google provides a deactivation option for the most popular browsers, which gives you more control over which data Google records and processes. If you activate this option, no information on the website visit will be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, the activation does not prevent information being transmitted to us or other web analysis services possibly used by us. Additional information on the deactivation option provided by Google as well as on the activation of this option can be obtained using the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
As an alternative to this, there is the possibility of clicking the following link to save an “opt-out cookie”. This will ensure that there will be no recording and processing by Google Analytics in the future. It should be noted that this opt-out cookie applies exclusively to the browser and not to the domain. As soon as you delete cookies in your browser, this link has to be clicked again.
6 Use of Google-Maps
On our website, we use the Google Maps component of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, subsequently referred to as “Google”.
Each time the Google Maps component is called, Google saves a cookie in order to process the user settings and data when showing the page on which the Google Maps component is integrated. This cookie is usually not deleted when the browser is closed, but rather expires after a certain amount of time if it is not manually deleted by you first.
Use of Google Maps and the information obtained from using Google Maps are in accordance with Google’s terms and conditions of use http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/terms/regional.html as well as the terms and conditions of business for Google Maps https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/help/terms_maps.html.
7 Einsatz von reCAPTCHA
To protect input forms on our website, we use the reCAPTCHA service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, subsequently referred to as “Google”. By using this service, it can be differentiated whether the respective input has a human origin or is made abusively through automated machine processing.
According to our knowledge, the referrer URL, the IP address, behaviour of the website visitors, information on the operating system, browser and length of stay, cookies, presentation instructions and scripts, the input behaviour of the user as well as mouse movements in the area of the reCAPTCHA checkbox are transmitted to Google.
Google uses the information obtained that way in order to, among other things, digitise books and other printed products as well as to optimise services such as Google Street View and Google Maps (e.g. house numbers and street name recognition).
The IP address transmitted as part of reCAPTCHA is not combined with other data from Google, unless you are logged into your Google account at the time the reCAPTCHA plug-in is used. If you want to prevent this transfer and storage of data about you and your behaviour by Google on our website, you must logout of Google specifically before you visit our site or alternatively use the reCAPTCHA plug-in.
The information obtained by using the reCAPTCHA service is in accordance with Google’s terms and conditions of use:
You can contact us free of charge for questions related to the collection, processing or use of your personal data and its correction, blocking, deletion or a revocation of permission that has been granted. We point out that you have a right to correction of incorrect data or deletion of personal data, if this claim does not contradict any legal obligations to retain data.
