Data protection declaration

 

Collection, processing and use of personal data. This privacy policy applies to the use of the INCREMENTUM website.

The website ingoldwetrust.report (hereinafter “Website”) is operated by INCREMENTUM AG, Im alten Riet 102, 9494 Schaan, Liechtenstein (hereinafter “INCREMENTUM” or “we”).

INCREMENTUM attaches great importance to the protection of your personal data and collects, processes and uses your personal data exclusively in accordance with the principles described below and in compliance with the applicable data protection laws.

Current information on the ECJ decision of 16.7.2020
 
The ECJ ruling declared the EU-US Privacy Shield Agreement to be invalid, as a result of which we have temporarily removed all scripts that carry out personal data transfer to third parties (see point B-V) pending a new ruling.

A. Your personal data

Personal data is all information that relates to an identified or identifiable person. This includes, for example, your name, your telephone number or your postal and e-mail address.

 

B. Collection, processing and use of personal data

INCREMENTUM collects, processes or uses your personal data exclusively to the extent described below.

 

I. Contact

You can contact INCREMENTUM directly by e-mail contact@incrementum.li, phone +423 237 26 66 or fax +423 237 26 67. INCREMENTUM collects, processes and uses the information you provide via the contact form (title, first and last name, e-mail address, subject and content of your message) solely for the purpose of processing your request.

 

II. INCREMENTUM Newsletter

On our website you can also register for our electronic newsletter. If you have agreed to this, INCREMENTUM will use the e-mail address you have provided exclusively to send you current product offers and information from INCREMENTUM. If you have opted for a personalized approach in the respective newsletters when registering for the newsletter, we will also use your first and last name as well as your date of birth for this purpose. After successful registration for the newsletter, you will automatically receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your e-mail address. As soon as you have confirmed your e-mail address by clicking on the link contained in the confirmation e-mail, you will regularly receive the newsletter you selected. In the newsletter email you can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time and revoke your consent (see also C). Technically the handling of the newsletter is done by Mailchimp (see point V).

 

III. Cookies

INCREMENTUM uses so-called cookies on the website. Cookies are small text files that are stored in the cache of your browser to enable recognition of your browser and to make your visit to our website even more attractive. We use so-called session cookies and so-called persistent cookies.

Session cookies automatically lose their validity when you leave the website. Persistent cookies remain on your terminal device for a longer period of time and enable us to save the contents of your shopping cart or the country settings, for example, and to use the tools described below for web analysis and individualized targeting. The cookie used enables us to display further suitable product suggestions based on the products selected by you on our website as part of the ordering process on our website. Of course you can also visit our website without cookies being stored on your browser. You can restrict or deactivate the storage of cookies in the settings of your browser at any time, but this can lead to restrictions in the functions and user-friendliness of our website.

 

IV. Advertising, market research and demand-oriented design of websites

On this website, usage data of your website visit (e.g. information about the beginning, end and extent of a website visit and click paths) may be collected, stored and used for the purposes of advertising, market research and the design of these websites to meet your needs. The data is stored under a pseudonym for a user profile. Cookies (i.e. small text files that are stored locally in the cache of the web browser) and/or a visitor ID that contains data from your terminal device used when visiting the web pages may be used. Cookies and visitor IDs allow your terminal device to be recognized with a certain probability. Without your explicit and separate consent (e.g. after consent according to the chapter “Consent to measures to prevent and detect misuse”), the collected data will not be used to identify you or to merge them with data about the bearer of the pseudonym. You can object to the collection, storage and use of your data for advertising, market research and needs-based design purposes at any time with effect for the future. The user profiles will then no longer be used for purposes of abuse prevention and detection, despite any consent that may have been given in accordance with the chapter “Consent to measures for abuse prevention and detection”.

 

V. Web analysis and targeting tools

1. Google Analytics

If you have given your consent, this website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google LLC (“Google”). The use includes the operating mode “Universal Analytics”. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus analyze the activities of a user across multiple devices.

Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, in the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before this happens. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by an IP-anonymization in order to guarantee an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so-called IP-Masking). The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google. More information on terms of use and data protection can be found at https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html and https://policies.google.com/?hl=de.

Purposes of processing

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the Internet.

Legal basis

The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is your consent in accordance to Art. 6 Abs. 1 S.1 lit. a DSGVO.

Recipients / categories of recipients

The recipient of the collected data is Google.

Transfer to third countries

The personal data will be transferred to the USA under the EU-US Privacy Shield based on the adequacy decision of the European Commission. You can download the certificate here

Duration of data storage

Data sent by us and linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. User ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 14 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month.

Rights of data subjects

You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by preventing the storage of cookies through a corresponding setting in your browser software; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the Browser-Add-on . Opt-out cookies prevent the future collection of your data when visiting this website. To prevent Universal Analytics from collecting data across multiple devices, you must opt-out on all systems in use.

2. Facebook Pixel

This website uses the Facebook Pixel of the social networks “Facebook” (Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, California 94304, USA). This serves the purpose of presenting interest-related advertisements to visitors to our website as part of their visit to the social network Facebook. The Facebook pixel is used to establish a direct connection to the Facebook servers when visiting our website. In the process, the Facebook server is informed that you have visited our website and Facebook assigns this information to your personal Facebook user account. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the website, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Facebook. You can find more information on the collection and use of data by Facebook and on your rights and options for protecting your privacy in this regard in Facebook’s privacy policy at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. We ourselves do not pass on customer data to Facebook. Further information about your respective data protection rights and setting options for protecting your privacy can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php, https://www.facebook.com/help/186325668085084.

3. Mailchimp

INCREMENTUM uses MailChimp as its marketing automation platform.

MailChimp is a newsletter distribution platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. The e-mail addresses of INCREMENTUM newsletter recipients as well as their other data described in the notes are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on behalf of INCREMENTUM. In addition, according to its own information, the dispatch service provider may use this data in pseudonymous form, i.e. without allocation to a user, to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimize the dispatch and presentation of the newsletters or for statistical purposes to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, the dispatch service provider does not use the data of INCREMENTUM newsletter recipients to write to them itself or pass them on to third parties. INCREMENTUM trusts in the reliability and IT and data security of MailChimp. MailChimp is certified under the Privacy-Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with the European data protection level. Furthermore, INCREMENTUM has concluded a “Data-Processing-Agreement” with MailChimp. This is a contract in which MailChimp commits itself to protect the data of INCREMENTUM newsletter subscribers, to process it according to their privacy policy on behalf of INCREMENTUM and especially not to pass it on to third parties.
