Status: 13.04.2018, published on 22.05.2018Introduction
NETSYNO Software GmbH (in short „NETSYNO“) takes the protection and confidentiality of your data very seriously. The collection and use of your personal data is carried out exclusively within the framework of the statutory provisions of the applicable data protection law. Under no circumstances will the collected data be sold, leased or otherwise commercially disposed of.
NETSYNO would like to inform you with this data protection declaration about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. In addition, you as a data subject will be informed about your rights by means of this data protection declaration. You can access this information at any time on our website.
NETSYNO, as the data controller, has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as completely as possible. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed.
This data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European legislator for directives and regulations when the basic data protection regulation (DS-GVO) was adopted. Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.
In this data protection declaration we use the following terms, among others (in alphabetical order:
a) contract processor
Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
(b) Data subject
Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.
(c) third party
Third party means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or the processor, are authorized to process the personal data.
(d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.
Consent shall mean any freely given and informed unequivocal expression of the data subject’s wishes in the specific case, in the form of a statement or any other unequivocal affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her consent to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
The recipient is any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not that person is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation mandate under Union or national law shall not be considered as recipients.
(g) Personal data
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (see „data subject“). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an on-line identifier or one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
Profiling is any automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to the performance of work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, location or change of location of that natural person.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the need for additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person
(j) Controller or controller
Controller or data controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or national law, provision may be made for the controller or for the specific criteria for his or her designation in accordance with Union or national law.
Processing is any operation or set of operations, performed with or without the aid of automated means, which is performed upon personal data, such as collection, recording, organisation, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
Name and address of the controller
The person responsible within the meaning of the basic data protection regulation, other data protection laws applicable in the member states of the European Union and other regulations of a data protection nature is the:
NETSYNO Software GmbH

Should you have any questions or suggestions regarding data protection, please feel free to contact us by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When accessing NETSYNO websites and services, your Internet browser automatically transmits data for technical reasons which are stored in the server log files for the proper operation and protection of our websites and services („access data“). This includes the operating system, browser type and version, referrer URL, the date and time of access. The IP address is only stored shortened by the last three digits. This data is at no time assigned to a specific or identifiable person and is deleted after one month of visiting our website at the latest.
By using cookies, NETSYNO can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services which would not be possible without the setting of cookies.
The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, it is possible that not all functions of our website can be fully used.
Collection of general data and information
NETSYNO’s Internet pages and also the service collect a number of general data and information with each call by a data subject or automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following can be recorded: (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet Protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information which serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
NETSYNO will not draw any conclusions about the person concerned when using this general data and information. Rather, this information is required in order (1) to deliver the contents of our Internet pages correctly, (2) to optimize the contents of our Internet page and the advertising for it, (3) to ensure the permanent operability of our information technology systems and the technology of our Internet page, and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated by NETSYNO on the one hand statistically and also with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company, in order to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data in the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned.
Data provided by users during registration
You have the option of registering on the NETSYNO website by providing personal data. Which personal data is transmitted to us in the process is determined by the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the person concerned will be collected and stored exclusively for internal use at NETSYNO and for our own purposes. NETSYNO may arrange for the transfer to one or more processors who will also use the personal data exclusively for internal use attributable to NETSYNO.
Your registration with voluntary provision of personal data serves NETSYNO to offer you content or services which, due to the nature of things, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to change the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have them completely deleted from the data stock of the data controller.
Furthermore, you register on the NETSYNO Internet site and/or the service, the IP address assigned to you by your Internet service provider (ISP), the date and time of registration are also saved. The storage of this data is carried out with the aim of preventing the misuse of our services and, if necessary, to enable the clarification of any criminal offences committed. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary to protect the person responsible for processing. As a matter of principle, this data will not be passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to do so or the passing on of the data serves criminal prosecution.
NETSYNO services make it possible to collect personal information or data by means of forms or surveys. When you fill out a form or participate in a survey, NETSYNO stores the answers you send us. NETSYNO only provides the technical platform for such forms and surveys. The author of the form is responsible for this data, further processing and your use. If you have any questions regarding the form or survey, please contact the author of the form or survey directly, as NETSYNO is not responsible for the content or the answers.
If you send NETSYNO a message by e-mail or instant messaging, we need the above-mentioned and possibly additional information to be able to respond to your request, idea or criticism. When using paid services, NETSYNO also requires your account data to process payments.
NETSYNO will provide each person concerned with information at any time upon request as to what personal data is stored about the person concerned. Furthermore, NETSYNO will correct or delete personal data at the request or notification of the person concerned, provided that this does not conflict with any statutory storage obligations or other statutory regulations regarding deletion. A data protection officer named in this data protection declaration and all NETSYNO employees are available to the data subject as contact persons in this connection.
Passing on of data
NETSYNO will not pass on personal data without informing you in advance and having your consent. Data will only be passed on without your consent if there is legal permission to do so, especially if we are legally obliged to release data. A legal obligation may exist in particular in the event of inquiries from law enforcement authorities or third parties whose rights have been violated via one of our services.
Our service partners who NETSYNO commissions to process our services with the user (e.g. credit card institutes for processing payments or providers of software for support) will only receive those personal data from us which are necessary for the respective service.
NETSYNO uses the external hosting service providers Hetzner Online AG, Stuttgarter Str. 1, 91710 Gunzenhausen, Germany, and Tralios IT GmbH, Bannwaldallee 46, 76185 Karlsruhe, Germany, to provide the INOPAI service. NETSYNO and the hosting service providers have concluded an agreement on order processing that meets the legal requirements.
NETSYNO provides a free newsletter service. With the newsletter, we inform you about news regarding the services you have ordered and similar services as well as about our company. NETSYNO stores your name as well as your e-mail and IP addresses when you subscribe to the newsletter, as well as the date and time of your order. This data is deleted when you unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can unsubscribe at any time at email@example.com or by clicking on the corresponding link in the e-mail.
The newsletter contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a thumbnail graphic that is embedded in such e-mails sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. By means of the embedded pixel-code, NETSYNO can recognize whether and when an e-mail was opened by a person concerned and which links contained in the e-mail were called up by the person concerned.
Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters is stored and evaluated by NETSYNO in order to optimize the newsletter dispatch and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the person concerned. This personal data is not passed on to third parties. Affected persons are entitled to revoke the separate declaration of consent submitted in this regard via the double opt-in procedure at any time. After revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the data controller. NETSYNO automatically interprets a cancellation of receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.
Websites of external providers.
Our services include links to external third-party websites. NETSYNO is not responsible for the data protection or content of these websites.
Use of Google Analytics
NETSYNO has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) on the www.netsyno.com and www.inopai.com websites. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data on the behavior of visitors to Internet sites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data on which internet page a person concerned came to an internet page from (so-called referrers), which sub-pages of the internet page were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and to analyse the cost-benefit of internet advertising.
The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The data controller uses the addition „gat._anonymizeIp“ for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the data subject’s Internet connection is shortened and made anonymous by Google if our Internet pages are accessed from a member state of the European Union or from another state that is a party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website in order to compile online reports for us which show the activities on our website and to provide further services in connection with the use of our website.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is able to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, is called up, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Google receives knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission settlements.
By means of the cookie, personal information such as the access time, the place from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned is stored. Each time our website is visited, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.
The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

(d) Right of cancellation (right to be forgotten)
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain from the controller the immediate erasure of personal data relating to him/her, if one of the following reasons applies and provided that the processing is not necessary:
- the personal data have been collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which they are no longer necessary.

- The deletion of the personal data is necessary to comply with a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject.
- The personal data was collected in relation to information society services offered in accordance with Article 8 (1) of the DS-GVO.
If any of the above reasons apply and a data subject wishes to have personal data stored by NETSYNO deleted, he or she can contact our data protection officer or contact us at email@example.com at any time. The NETSYNO data protection officer or an employee will arrange for the deletion request to be complied with immediately.
If the personal data has been made public by NETSYNO and our company, as the responsible party, is obliged to delete the personal data in accordance with Art. 17 Para. 1 DS-GVO, NETSYNO will take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and implementation costs, to inform other persons responsible for data processing who process the published personal data, that the data subject has requested these other persons responsible for data processing to delete all links to these personal data or copies or replications of these personal data, insofar as the processing is not necessary. The NETSYNO data protection officer or an employee will arrange for the necessary action in individual cases.
e) Right to restrict processing
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain from the controller the restriction of processing if one of the following conditions is met:
the accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period of time sufficient to enable the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data
The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses to have the personal data deleted and instead requests the restriction of the use of the personal data.
The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data subject needs them in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
The data subject has lodged an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) of the DPA and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh those of the data subject.
If one of the above-mentioned conditions is met and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored at NETSYNO, he or she can contact our data protection officer or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org at any time. The data protection officer or an employee will arrange for the restriction of the processing.
f) Right to data transferability
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to receive the personal data concerning him/her which have been made available to a controller by the data subject in a structured, common and machine-readable format. He or she also has the right to have this data communicated to another controller without hindrance by the controller to whom the personal data has been made available, provided that the processing is based on the consent pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 letter a DPA or Article 9 paragraph 2 letter a DPA or on a contract pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 letter b DPA and that the processing is carried out by means of automated procedures, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
Furthermore, when exercising their right to data transfer pursuant to Art. 20 Para. 1 DPA, the data subject has the right to request that personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.
In order to assert the right to data transfer, the person concerned may at any time contact the data protection officer appointed by NETSYNO or contact us via email@example.com.
g) Right of objection

This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
NETSYNO will no longer process personal data in the event of an objection, unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing which are worthy of protection and which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or unless the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If NETSYNO processes personal data for the purpose of direct advertising, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to NETSYNO processing for the purposes of direct advertising, NETSYNO will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right to object, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her that is carried out at NETSYNO for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89 Para. 1 DS-GVO, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest.
To exercise the right of objection, the data subject may contact the NETSYNO data protection officer directly or contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org. The data subject is also free to exercise his/her right of objection in relation to the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures involving technical specifications.
(h) Automated case-by-case decisions, including profiling
Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European legislator, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him/her or significantly affects him/her in a similar way, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is authorised by Union or national legislation to which the controller is subject and such legislation provides for adequate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) is made with the explicit consent of the data subject.
If the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or (2) is made with the express consent of the data subject, NETSYNO will take reasonable steps to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person from the data controller, to express its views and to challenge the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise rights relating to automated decisions, he or she may contact our Data Protection Officer or contact us at email@example.com at any time.
i) Right to revoke consent under data protection law
Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation Giver, to revoke his or her consent to the processing of personal data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to exercise his or her right to revoke consent, he or she may contact our Data Protection Officer or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org at any time.
Routine deletion and blocking of personal data
NETSYNO processes and stores personal data of the data subject only for the period of time required to achieve the purpose of storage or if this has been provided for by the European Directive and Regulation Giver or another legislator in laws or regulations to which the data controller is subject.
If the purpose of storage ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directives and Regulations Giver or any other competent legislator expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with the statutory provisions.
The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted if it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.
Legal basis of the data processing
Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.
If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services.
If our company is subject to a legal obligation which makes it necessary to process personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO.
In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were to be injured and his or her name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be disclosed to a doctor, hospital or other third party. The processing would then be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO.
Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject prevail. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO). If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f of the DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.
NETSYNO is entitled to amend these data protection provisions at any time. NETSYNO shall notify the customer of such changes in writing three months in advance. The change shall be deemed to be agreed if the Customer does not object in writing within six weeks of receipt of the notification.
If the customer objects and the change affects the service, NETSYNO is entitled to terminate the contract for use of the service with effect from the end of the current billing month.
