b) Data Subject
Data Subject means any identified or identifiable person whose Personal Data are processed by the Controller.

d) Restriction of Processing
Restriction of Processing is the marking of stored Personal Data with the aim of limiting their future Processing.

Pseudonymisation means the Processing of Personal Data in such a way that Personal Data can no longer be related to a specific Data Subject without additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and is subject to technical and organisational measures that ensure that the Personal Data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable person.
The Controller is the person or entity, public authority, agency or other body that 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 Member State law, the Controller or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for under Union or Member State law.
Processor means a person or entity, public authority, agency or other body which Processes Personal Data on behalf of the Controller.
Recipient means a person or entity, public authority, agency or other body to whom Personal Data are disclosed, whether or not a Third Party. However, public authorities that may receive Personal Data in the context of a specific investigative task under Union or Member State law shall not be deemed Recipients.
j) Third Party
Third Party means any person or entity, public authority, agency or other body other than the Data Subject, the Controller, the Processor and the persons authorised to Process the Personal Data under the direct responsibility of the Controller or the Processor.

4. Collection of general data and information
DARCO’s website collects a series of general data and information every time a Data Subject or automated system calls up the website. These general data and information items are stored in the server’s log files. The following data may be collected: (1) the 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 invoked via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access to the website, (6) an internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems. When using these general data and information, DARCO does not draw any conclusions about the Data Subject. Rather, this information is needed (1) to deliver the contents of our website correctly, (2) to optimise the contents of our website and the advertising for these, (3) to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. Therefore, DARCO analyses anonymously collected data and information on one hand for statistical purposes and on the other hand for the purpose of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and ultimately 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 any Personal Data provided by a Data Subject.
5. Routine deletion and blocking of Personal Data
We process and store Personal Data only for the time necessary to achieve the purpose of the storage or if this has been provided for by the European legislator or another legislator in laws or regulations to which we are subject.

b) Subscription to our newsletter
If you wish to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified e-mail address and that you agree to receive the newsletter.
We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to ensure that the newsletter is sent with your consent. In the course of this, the potential recipient allows himself / herself to be included into a distribution list. Subsequently, the user is given the opportunity to confirm the registration in a legally secure manner by means of a confirmation e-mail. Only if the confirmation is received will the address be actively included in the distribution list.
We use these data exclusively for sending the requested information and offers.
Newsletter2Go is used as the newsletter software. Your data will be transmitted to Newsletter2Go GmbH.

Further information can be found here:
You can revoke your consent to the storage of data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter.
The newsletters contain a so-called “web beacon”, i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from our server when the newsletter is opened, or if we use a dispatch service provider, from their server. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information such as information on the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and the time of the retrieval are initially collected.
This information is used for the technical improvement of the services on the basis of the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour on the basis of their retrieval locations (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or the access times. Statistical surveys also include determining whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened, and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our intention nor, if used, that of the dispatch service provider to observe individual users. Rather, the analyses serve us to recognise the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
