The website of Eurosmart is hosted by a mutulalised cluster of servers located in France.
Cookies may contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited Internet sites to identify the internet browser used.
The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by setting the browser preferences accordingly, and may thus permanently avoid the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies already set may be deleted at any time in the browser preferences or by other software programs. If the user deactivates cookies in his internet browser, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.
4. Collection of general data and information
The website of Eurosmart collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, Eurosmart does not draw any conclusions in respect of the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, Eurosmart may analyse anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our organisation, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
5. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google Analytics
Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google Analytics On this website, the controller has integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the anonymiser function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimisation of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising. The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States. The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services concerning the use of our Internet site for us. Google Analytics places a cookie on your information technology system. The definition of cookies is explained above. You may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.
Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and under http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html Google Analytics is further explained under the following Link https://www.google.com/analytics
6. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Twitter
On this website, the controller has integrated components of Twitter. Twitter is a multilingual, publicly-accessible microblogging service on which users may publish and spread so-called ‘tweets,’ e.g. short messages. These short messages are available for everyone, including those who are not logged on to Twitter. The tweets are also displayed to so-called followers of the respective user. Followers are other Twitter users who follow a user’s tweets. Furthermore, Twitter allows you to address a wide audience via hashtags, links or retweets.
The operating company of Twitter is Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, UNITED STATES.
With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which a Twitter component (Twitter button) was integrated, the Internet browser on your information technology system is automatically prompted to download a display of the corresponding Twitter component of Twitter.
Further information about the Twitter buttons is available under https://about.twitter.com/de/resources/buttons The applicable data protection provisions of Twitter may be accessed under https://twitter.com/privacy?lang=en
7. Newsletter tracking

A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online diffusion, optimize the newsletter and adjust it to meet the readers’ interests. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, Eurosmart may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were clicked by data subjects. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Data subjects are at any time entitled to object this use of the data.

12. Legal basis for the processing
Art. 6(1) lit. a of GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose, such as our newsletter. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when we process data while you are visiting our website or send us a message via our contact form or by using our contact data, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR, as is the case, when we collect information about your visit at our website and store cookies. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Our legitimate interest is to improve our website and to make it more user-friendly.
