This Data Privacy Statement is valid for all domains, which belong to V2R:
v2r.de, v2r-reader.de, v2r-reader.com and pinme.de
Here's a dedicated privacy statement which explains how the V2R Business Card Reader treats your privacy and the data it collects from the business cards which you scan.
V2R GmbH and Bernd Mielke protect your personal information. Your data are always treated confidentially. All actions comply with the legal requirements.
GDPR (in Germany: DSGVO) requires to inform the visitors of one's site in plain text and comprehensively about what happens to their personal data. On the other hand, as a web site operator, you have to legally secure everything in a formally correct way. These two requirements are in fact contradicting each other - if you explain it easily understandable, you are not fully secured. And when you describe in a legally secure way how you are handling personal data, then it's far from easy to understand and requires a lot of text.
First, a version that describes in a (hopefully) easy-to-understand way who at V2R is your point of contact for all aspects, what is understood by private data, what V2R actually does and does not do with your private data, which rights do you have following the GDPR, how you can claim your rights if necessary and how you can complain to the competent supervisory authority - the state data protection officer of NRW - if you believe that the V2R is not behaving correctly.
It contains all the terminology definitions, provides the contact information of the controller, explains which data can be collected, erased and blocked, explains the rights of concerned persons following the GDPR, as well as some other definitions regarding the way V2R GmbH manages personal data, and provides in each case the appropriate paragraphs in the GDPR regulation. If these formulations are incomprehensible to you, please contact me for clarification.
Privacy policies regarding the use of Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Xing and other companies are not relevant in the case of V2R, as there is no integration at all with social networks on any of the websites of V2R. Therefore, you will find no related wording in this declaration.
Contact in V2R for any aspect:
Kurfürstenstr. 8, 45138 Essen, Germany
Tel. +49 201 3616661
Personal data may be collected in the following ways:
In log files among others the following information can be saved:
Your personal information will not be shared with any external entity; neither sold nor given away for free.
Exceptions may be requests for information by authorities (police, prosecutors, etc.).
There is no analysis by third parties.
On V2R there is no tracking of your activities, such as invisible 1-pixel graphics or links containing history information.
On V2R pages there is no advertising for third parties.
There is no statistical analysis by external service providers (such as Google Analytics, Matomo [formerly Piwik], …).
On V2R there is no integration with social networks (such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Google+, …) nor bookmark services (such as Pinterest or Pinboard).
As the DSGVO claims, I will of course inform you on request, free of charge, if and, if so, what data I have collected about you, as well as the reason / source of this data. Currently (May 2018) these are only e-mails and written inquiries and orders. Regarding such communication from your side, you should actually know yourself what and when you have emailed or mailed me …
Furthermore, I will comply with your requests regarding the correction or deletion of personal data, provided that no regulation, ordinances or laws require storing or providing of information.
I will not delete any mails in which you provide me with information regarding content of V2R, linking, permissions to use text, graphics, logos or other content, etc., because I would need these, if the legality of information, links etc. on V2R is doubted.
On V2R there is no processing of private data. Also, V2R is too small for being obliged to name a dedicated privacy officer. If necessary, please contact me with any questions by mail to Bernd Mielke.
In the case of data protection regulation violations, persons affected have the right of appeal to the responsible supervisory authority. The supervisory authority responsible for data protection issues is the state data protection officer of the federal state in which V2R is located; that is NRW.
The list of all data protection officers with their contact details can be found here, provided by the Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information ("Der Bundesbeauftragte für den Datenschutz und die Informationsfreiheit").
The V2R pages are hosted by deLink.
The use of the contact data published in the context of the imprint obligation for the transmission of not expressly requested advertising and other information materials is hereby rejected. One-time sending of information that is relevant for the company or certain V2R web pages is excluded from this requirement. The operator of the pages expressly reserves the right to take legal action in case of unsolicited promotional information, such as spam e-mails.
In the following the formally applicable privacy declaration of the V2R GmbH; the reason why this is here, is described above
Wir freuen uns sehr über Ihr Interesse an unserem Unternehmen. Datenschutz hat einen besonders hohen Stellenwert für die Geschäftsleitung der V2R GmbH. Eine Nutzung der Internetseiten der V2R GmbH ist grundsätzlich ohne jede Angabe personenbezogener Daten möglich. Sofern eine betroffene Person besondere Services unseres Unternehmens über unsere Internetseite in Anspruch nehmen möchte, könnte jedoch eine Verarbeitung personenbezogener Daten erforderlich werden. Ist die Verarbeitung personenbezogener Daten erforderlich und besteht für eine solche Verarbeitung keine gesetzliche Grundlage, holen wir generell eine Einwilligung der betroffenen Person ein.
Die Verarbeitung personenbezogener Daten, beispielsweise des Namens, der Anschrift, E-Mail-Adresse oder Telefonnummer einer betroffenen Person, erfolgt stets im Einklang mit der Datenschutz-Grundverordnung und in Übereinstimmung mit den für die V2R GmbH geltenden landesspezifischen Datenschutzbestimmungen. Mittels dieser Datenschutzerklärung möchte unser Unternehmen die Öffentlichkeit über Art, Umfang und Zweck der von uns erhobenen, genutzten und verarbeiteten personenbezogenen Daten informieren. Ferner werden betroffene Personen mittels dieser Datenschutzerklärung über die ihnen zustehenden Rechte aufgeklärt.
Die V2R GmbH hat als für die Verarbeitung Verantwortlicher zahlreiche technische und organisatorische Maßnahmen umgesetzt, um einen möglichst lückenlosen Schutz der über diese Internetseite verarbeiteten personenbezogenen Daten sicherzustellen. Dennoch können Internetbasierte Datenübertragungen grundsätzlich Sicherheitslücken aufweisen, sodass ein absoluter Schutz nicht gewährleistet werden kann. Aus diesem Grund steht es jeder betroffenen Person frei, personenbezogene Daten auch auf alternativen Wegen, beispielsweise telefonisch, an uns zu übermitteln.
The data protection declaration of the V2R GmbH is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be legible and understandable for the general public, as well as our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to first explain the terminology used.
In this data protection declaration, we use, inter alia, the following terms:

Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (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.
