[Settings for use of my data]

Current as at: 2.0

By agreeing to the following Consent to the Use of Personal Data, I consent to poolworks Ltd, as operator of the Network, processing and using my personal information in accordance with the provisions set forth below and in compliance with the applicable statutory provisions, including, without limitation, the data protection laws.

  1. I consent to VZ Netzwerke Ltd collecting, processing and using my personal information for the purpose of setting up, implementing and processing my service agreement relating to the Network. The responsible office within the meaning of the applicable data protection laws is poolworks (Germany) Ltd, 5 New Street Square, EC4A3TW London/United Kingdom including the German branch of poolworks Ltd at Saarbrücker Straße 38, 10405 Berlin / Germany.

    Personal information means inventory data (e.g. first name and surname, date of birth etc. provided upon registration) and data concerning the use which is necessary in order to access and take part in the Network (e.g. the password to login to the Network).

    For further information please see the data protection information relating to use of the Network.

  2. I consent to the following information which I enter upon registration being accessible and viewable to all users of the Network:

    • first name and surname;
    • country and region

    I also agree to a picture which I upload and add to my profile (“My Profile”) being accessible and viewable to all users of the Network.

    I acknowledge that I can change my settings at any time via the Network by selecting “Privacy” from the menu and can thereby determine whether all registered users can view my profile or whether access to my profile is limited.

    The basic settings allow my profile to be viewed by all other users who have signed up to the Network. I can limit access to my profile at any time to:

    • all people in my own region, my friends and their friends;
    • my friends and their friends; or
    • only my friends.

    Members can select different settings for the meinVZ platform and studiVZ platform. For further information please see the data protection information relating to use of the Network.

  3. I agree to VZ Netzwerke Ltd using so-called cookies to collect, process and use my user data. These cookies are used to make the Network user-friendly and user-oriented as well as effective and secure. For example, the data requested to verify my identity when I login can be saved so that the login process is simplified. Cookies also allow personal greetings to be sent within the Network and allow the creation of applications which are specifically tailored to me as a user.

    Cookies are alphanumerical identification symbols which are temporarily saved in the browser memory (“session cookies”) or permanently saved on the hard drive (“permanent cookies”). When choosing the settings for your Internet browser you can choose whether to accept cookies, receive notification of cookies or block all cookies. However, the Network will not function or its functionality will be limited if application-related cookies are blocked. This is because certain applications are only available if and to the extent that application-related cookies are accepted.

    For further information please see the data protection information relating to use of the Network.

  4. I consent to the automatic transmission of information by the Internet browser to the Network when I have accessed the Network and to VZ Netzwerke Ltd storing such information for a maximum period of six months in so-called server-log files. Further details may be found in the information about our current policy on saving IP addresses.

    Further information on the information that is automatically stored in so-called server-log files in the event of Network access may be found at the data protection information relating to use of the VZ Netzwerke Ltd Network.

    I consent to VZ Netzwerke Ltd evaluating and analysing such data stored in so-called server-log files in order to optimise the Network and its applications and in order to present me with or arrange for the presentation in a targeted manner of personalised advertising and/or special offers and services via the Network.

    The purpose of evaluation of the so-called server-log files shall include, inter alia, optimisation of the Network and its Applications. Thus VZ Netzwerke Ltd may, for example, acquire an understanding of the times at which Network usage is particularly popular and what data volume is generated during use. Moreover, inter alia, other potential errors may be ascertained (e.g. broken links).

    In evaluating the so-called server-log files, the clickstream to, through and from the Network’s websites shall also be analysed and examined to establish which areas within the Network are visited and/or searched for and with what frequency. VZ Netzwerke Ltd may also use, inter alia, cookies and/or JavaScript during such clickstream analysis in order to collect and evaluate information. Having declared consent, the user may be presented with advertising and/or special offers and services via the Network, the content of which will be based on the information acquired in conjunction with the clickstream analysis (e.g. advertising oriented around a given user who visits groups for a particular type of sport).

    I acknowledge that, should I no longer desire such personalised advertising, I may refuse it and at any time object to use of my data. To this end, following successful login into the Network, I may call up and change my settings under “Settings for use of my data” under the heading “Data protection” at the end of this Consent to the Use of Personal Data.

  5. I consent to VZ Netzwerke Ltd using the data provided by me upon registration (e.g. sex and region etc.), the data voluntarily entered by me into my own profile (“My Profile”) (e.g. former course/study orientation, interests, clubs, musical orientation, bands, favourite books/films, etc.) and my membership in groups (“My Groups”) in order to present me with or arrange for the presentation in a targeted manner of personalised advertising and/or special offers and services via the Network (e.g. a book recommendation or product advertising oriented around my interests).

    I acknowledge that, should I no longer desire such personalised advertising, I may refuse it and at any time object to use of my data. To this end, following successful login into the Network, I may call up and change my settings under “Settings for use of my data” under the heading “Data protection” at the end of this Consent to the Use of Personal Data.

  6. I consent to VZ Netzwerke Ltd sending me information; this will include instructions and reports for Network users. I acknowledge that VZ Netzwerke Ltd will use my personal data in accordance with the settings selected by me. Messages shall be sent by email to the email address used by me to use the Network or via the messaging service.

    In addition, I consent to VZ Netzwerke Ltd using my personal data in order to send me marketing messages by way of electronic mail (to send emails to the email address used by me to use the Network and/or to send messages of an advertising nature via a messaging service).

    Further information on the extent to which electronic mail with advertising content will be sent by VZ Netzwerke Ltd is located in the data protection information relating to use of the Network.

    I acknowledge that, should I no longer wish to receive electronic mail of an advertising nature, I may refuse it and at any time object to receipt of such messages. To this end, following successful login into the Network, I may call up and change my settings under “Settings for use of my data” under the heading “Data protection” at the end of this Consent to the Use of Personal Data.

  7. I acknowledge that VZ Netzwerke Ltd is subject to a statutory obligation to disclose at the order of competent authorities member information and/or usage data of mine to investigative, criminal prosecution or supervisory authorities if and to the extent that this is necessary in order to avert risks for State and public safety and to prosecute criminal acts. This relates to the statutory power to issue information provided for under § 14 (2) and § 15 (5) sentence 4 of the German Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz).

    I acknowledge that I have the option to object to the foregoing consent to the processing of personal data at any time with future effect, in whole or in part, vis-à-vis to VZ Netzwerke Ltd. Such objection shall be sent by email to revoke@meinvz.net or to: poolworks Ltd, Saarbrücker Straße 38 in 10405 Berlin / Germany.

This Consent to the Use of Personal Data is an English translation of the German “Datenschutzerklärung”. All due care has been taken to translate the German “Datenschutzerklärung” from German to English. If despite of all care, there should be an inconsistency between the German and English text, the German “Datenschutzerklärung” prevails.
