Your information may also be used to contact you when necessary (such as to assist you in your use of the Site). You may always choose not to provide us with this information; however, this may limit our ability to provide you with a specific service. You may opt-out of receiving future mailings at any time (see the Choice/Opt-Out section below); however, you may not opt-out of some administrative emails (such as emails about User Agreement changes) while you are a member of the Site.

Privacy, Data Protection and GDPR - Detail

pondz.co.uk, which is owned and operated by Standtech Systems Ltd., offers you the opportunity to use various services free of charge via our website.

We are the data controller in the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our contact details are as follows:

Standtech Systems Ltd.
254 Coggeshall Road
Little Tey
Colchester, CO6 1HT

E-Mail: webmaster (at) standtech.co.uk

In the following we provide you with comprehensive information about the purpose for which and scope within which we process your personal data during the use of this website.

Collection and processing of personal data

You can generally use our website - for which no payment or registration is required - without providing personal data. In certain cases, we will collect the personal data listed in Section 3. This fundamentally only occurs where necessary for the provision of a functional website or app, or for our content and services. We furthermore process personal data in connection with the use of our site where you provide this data voluntarily, e.g. in the context of registration, a competition, an enquiry sent to us, or because there is another legal basis for this (see Section 4).

Categories of data processed

As soon as you visit pondz.co.uk or use one of the apps, our system automatically collects certain technical information. This can include:

- Information about the browser type and version used

- Operating system of the device from which the request originates

- Mobile device ID

- Date and time of access

- Web analysis data / pseudonymised user profile (cookie ID, ad ID etc., see below for more information)

- Websites from which the user got to our website

- Websites accessed by the user from our website

Furthermore, we process the following personal data where a contractual relationship exists between you and us, or where you have communicated the data to us in another manner:

- Personal master data (name)

- Communication data (email address)

- Comments, submissions etc.

Reason, content and purposes of processing: The pondz.co.uk website and services in general

We always process your data on the basis of one or more legal permissions or with your consent.

a. Submission of evaluations and comments

Personal data is collected by pondz.co.uk when you as a site visitor submit your evaluation of a product, service, service provider or dealer (also referred to in the following as "online shop"), or participate in a survey. In this context, pondz.co.uk collects the data specified in the respective form and the IP address assigned to the device used by you at the relevant point in time.

Information about you will only be published on the affected pondz.co.uk website where this is marked in the field of the form. We collect and process the data you provide in order to be able to publish your evaluation or comment as desired (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR).

b. Shopping and direct booking function

Based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR,

pondz.co.uk

Unless otherwise indicated, it is pondz.co.uk itself that collects your data that you enter in the respective contact forms. Please note that data transmission via the internet may be unsecured, and that data may therefore be intercepted or even falsified by unauthorised parties.

When you enter data in contact forms, we will only use the data for the purpose of conducting the communication with you and/or to provide the service you request; this constitutes our legitimate interest. The processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

pondz.co.uk sometimes integrates original content from partners in comparison services. In this case, the data that you enter are collected not by us but by the respective partner. The partners are named on the respective pondz.co.uk websites. The partners have confirmed to us that they will handle your data in compliance with data protection requirements. Nevertheless, pondz.co.uk has no influence over the collection, processing and use of your data by the partners. For information on whether and in what scope the partners collect your personal data, and what they use them for, please read the privacy policy of the respective partner, which can be accessed from the corresponding pondz.co.uk website or the content of the partner.

d. E-Mails and Newsletter

We use your e-mail address to send you our newsletter, if you subscribed and consented to the receipt of it potentially including advertisements. In this case we process your e-mail address to be able to deliver the newsletter as requested (Art 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR). You may object to the use of your e-mail address for such purposes at any time in writing or via e-mail (webmaster@standtech.co.uk) effective for the future, without resulting in any costs other than the transmission costs according to basic tariffs.

For our newsletters, we also select the content partly based on your prior use of the pondz.co.uk pages and your expressed interests in products and content, so that we can tailor the respective newsletter to you and your interests. For example, if you looked for sporting goods on the pondz.co.uk pages in the past, we would rather present you sporting goods in our newsletter than other product groups. For this purpose, we also process data that we collected using our cookies (for these cookies, see paragraph 9 c. below), and link them to your e-mail address. The legal basis for this data processing and the display of content relevant to you is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, however you can object to the data processing at any time (see section 16 a).

e. IP addresses

On the internet, every device needs a clear address in order to transmit data, known as its IP address. It is a technical requirement for the IP address to be saved, at least temporarily, in order to facilitate the delivery of the internet page and app content to the device of the user.

aa) Log files

For security purposes, our servers save the IP address in what are known as log files for 14 days, e.g. in order to determine what happens if an attack (DoS) is made on pondz.co.uk websites, or if illegal analysis of our databases occurs. This is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

bb) Geolocalisation etc.

Before any further or other processing, we abbreviate the IP addresses before each processing step and then process them in an anonymised state. Unabbreviated IP addresses are not saved or processed further.

The processing of the (thus abbreviated) IP addresses allows us to display content with regional relevance on all pondz.co.uk websites that are accessed from within a certain region. This is known as geolocalisation, i.e. assigning an instance of website access to the location from which it is accessed, and takes place exclusively on the basis of anonymised IP addresses, and only to the geographical level of German federal states / regions. Based on the geographical information thus obtained, it is never possible to determine the specific location of a user.

Occasion, content and purposes of processing: My Wish List and price alert

pondz.co.uk also offers you the following functionalities:

a. My Wish List

You can "save" pondz.co.uk products and these are then available to you on your "My Wish List". You are identified as the owner of your "My Wish List" list by cookies that are used. The "My Wish List" list allows you to compare products with one another in terms of their characteristics, and to access the price alarm function. The "My Wish List" list is additionally filled by pondz.co.uk with any products for which you have not completed the purchase using the "shopping function" from pondz.co.uk. Based on your "My Wish List" list entries, you may receive product recommendations via email, for example if the prices of the products you have saved change.

The legal basis here is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR.

b. Price alert

You have the option of setting up a price alarm for products, e.g. if you wish to purchase them for a cheaper price. You then enter your respective target price using the price alarm function. When you use the price alarm, pondz.co.uk saves your products and target prices together with your email address, so that we can inform you in the event of price changes. At the same time, the local storage of your browser saves a value ("true" or "false"), which helps us to decide whether to offer you utilisation suggestions for the price alarm (as a pop-up). You can find an overview of the saved price alarms in your customer account. The legal basis here for processing is also Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR.

Location of processing

We ourselves do not transfer your personal data to countries outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"), except in cases where it is permitted under the GDPR. Whether third parties, with whom you have your own contractual relationship (such as with Facebook, if you have a Facebook account) transfer data to countries outside the EEA, is beyond our knowledge and influence.

Some of our contractual partners also process data in countries outside the EEA. In order to ensure the protection of your personal rights also in the context of these data transfers, we use the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission in structuring the contractual relationships with the recipients in third countries in accordance with Art. 46 para. 2 lit. c GDPR.

For the US, the European Commission decided on 12th July 2016, that under the regulations of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shields an appropriate level of data protection exists (adequacy decision, Art. 45 GDPR). Further information - including the certification of the service providers we use - is available at https://www.privacyshield.gov. We only use US service providers who are certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield.

Origin of data

In certain cases, we also receive data because you have consented to them being transmitted to us.

As you know, apps are regularly made available to download by third-party providers (e.g. iTunes, Google etc.). If under the applicable terms and conditions of use of such a provider Standtech Systems Ltd. becomes your contractual partner for the purchase of the app, we process the data that the third-party provider makes available, in whatever scope is necessary for the fulfilment of contract, so that you can download the app to your mobile device.

Disclosure of your data to third parties

We will only disclose your personal data to third parties where this is necessary in order to fulfil our legal obligations to you, and where this is visibly done by or together with another provider (e.g. in the case of cooperation agreements), where we are otherwise legally entitled or obliged to disclose the data, or where you have provided us with corresponding consent.

In certain cases, we also use external service providers or affiliated companies, which we have contracted to process data for us, and which are bound by instructions. Such service providers are contractually bound by us as data processors in accordance with the strict provisions of the GDPR, and are not permitted to use your data for any further purposes. Data processors used by us perform in particular the following services: data centre, newsletter distribution and web/app analysis.

This disclosure of data to data processors takes place on the basis of Art. 28 Para. 1 GDPR, or alternatively on the basis of our legitimate interest in the economic and technical benefits associated with the use of specialised data processors, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Where we are legally obliged to do so, or where this is permitted under data protection law, we disclose personal data to public authorities, e.g. to police or the state prosecutor's office (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c GDPR). The disclosure of this data takes place on the basis of our legitimate interest in combating abuse, the prosecution of crimes, and in safeguarding, asserting and enforcing claims, which are not considered to be outweighed by your rights and interests in the protection of your personal data, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Cookies and other technologies

a. General

In order to ensure the full functionality of the pondz.co.uk websites, pondz.co.uk and the third parties named below save to your device files that serve amongst other things for collecting information regarding the use of a website or app, as well as additional data such as the IP address of the accessing computer and information about the software used (see above).

This typically involves the use of what are known as cookies. Cookies are small files that your browser saves on your device in a folder created for this purpose. These allow it to be determined, for example, whether you have ever visited a website before. If you have decided to stay logged into your customer account despite leaving the pondz.co.uk websites, cookies can also be used to save your login data e.g. for the customer account, so that you do not need to enter these data every time you access the site.

Many cookies contain what is known as a cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique code identifying the cookie. It consists of a sequence of characters that allow websites and servers to be mapped to the specific internet browser in which the cookie has been saved. This enables the websites visited to differentiate the individual browser of the data subject from other internet browsers that contain different cookies. This data is not collated with other data sources.

The use of cookies can also take place using what are known as web beacons (also called ClearGIFs or tracking pixels). These are small graphics (e.g. in emails and on websites) that are inserted in order to achieve a better understanding of the interaction between the visitor and the website.

We use different types of cookies: On the one hand, we use technical cookies, without which the functionality of the pondz.co.uk websites would be restricted, and on the other hand we use optional (see below) analysis and marketing cookies in order to make our services more user friendly. The analysis cookies are used for the purpose of improving the quality of both our content and yours. The analysis cookies tell us how pondz.co.uk is used, thus allowing us to continuously improve our services. Further information on the individual analysis cookies and services can be found in Section 10 of this privacy policy.

You can prevent us from using cookies at any time by adjusting the corresponding setting in your internet browser, and thus permanently opt out. Furthermore, you can delete existing cookies at any time using your internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all conventional internet browsers. If you deactivate cookies in the internet browser you use, you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of our website. In addition, you have the opportunity to object to analysis cookies and services (i.e. you can opt out; see Sections 10 and 11).

When using apps, a functionally comparable technology is used instead of cookies.

Cookies cannot identify you personally. In all cases, the use of cookies is justified on the basis of our legitimate interest in needs-oriented design, as well as for statistical analysis by pondz.co.uk (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR).

b. Web storage (session storage and local storage)

pondz.co.uk utilises web storage technology, a method for saving application data in your browser on your device, where your browser supports this technology and you have activated JavaScript. Web storage serves for optimising our website and our services. We use this technology for saving application data during the use of the pondz.co.uk websites, e.g. in order to make navigation when searching for products or services more convenient, and to provide the "Recently viewed" function.

Web storage provides two data objects, the session storage and the local storage. The entries in session storage are removed automatically after the browser or app is closed. You can delete the entries in local storage ("Recently viewed") at any time by deleting the history in your browser.

The session storage saves information in order to recognise your browser or device immediately, and thus provide you with easier access to our services. You can prevent the use of web storage by changing the corresponding setting in your browser, which may restrict the functionality of the pondz.co.uk websites.

The processing of data in web storage takes place on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the purposes of processing described above.

c. pondz.co.uk cookies

Cookies created by pondz.co.uk allow the collection of information regarding browser type/version, resolution, previous/new display variant, URL clickstream (order of the pages of our website that you have visited previously), time of visit(s) to the websites, the reference in the pondz.co.uk database for the products/services noted in your "My Wish List", and the cookie number, but not personal details such as name, address or email address. We use these cookies for purposes of advertising, market research and where required for the needs-oriented design of our services. The cookies of pondz.co.uk are valid for a maximum of six months, unless you delete them sooner. The processing of data is justified in this case by Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

Web/app analysis services

In order to continuously improve our content and adapt it to the interests of our users, and to display online advertising, we use a number of services that collect data on our website and in the app, and which analyse these data for us. Where these service providers are not themselves the data controller in the meaning of data protection legislation, they are always bound by instructions when processing the pseudonymised user data on the basis of a data processing agreement. The legal basis for this processing is always Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

You can deactivate the use of cookies by third-party providers, e.g. by accessing the deactivation page http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/ and acting on the information provided there on opting out.

Not all access to the pondz.co.uk pages is carried out via a web browser. In cases where users access using a mobile device, disabling cookies or changing web browser settings may not be possible.

In the following, you can find details of the analysis services we use:

h. Google Products

aa) Google AdSense

We have integrated Google AdSense on this website. Google AdSense is an online service that allows the mediation of advertising on third-party websites. Google AdSense is based on an algorithm that selects advertisements for third-party websites based on the content of the respective third-party website. Google AdSense permits interest-oriented targeting of internet users, which is implemented by generating individual user profiles.

The operating company of the Google AdSense component is Alphabet Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of the Google AdSense component is the integration of advertisements into our website. Google AdSense saves a cookie to the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. Saving the cookie allows Alphabet Inc. to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website, which we operate and on which a Google AdSense component has been integrated, is retrieved, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Google AdSense component to send data to Alphabet Inc. for purposes of online advertising and the invoicing of commissions. Within the framework of this technical process, Alphabet Inc. receives knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which is used by Alphabet Inc. amongst other things to understand the origin of the visitor and the clicks, and subsequently to facilitate commission invoicing.

The data subject can prevent cookies from being used by our website at any time, as already described above, by adjusting the corresponding setting in the internet browser used, and thus permanently opt out.

Such a setting in the internet browser would also prevent Alphabet Inc. from saving a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. Furthermore, you can delete any cookie saved by Alphabet Inc. at any time using your internet browser or other software programs.

Google AdSense additionally uses what are known as tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in websites in order to allow log file recording and log file analysis, which allows statistical analysis to be performed. Using the embedded tracking pixel, Alphabet Inc. can recognise when a website was opened by a data subject, and what links the data subject clicked. Tracking pixels are used amongst other things to analyse the visitor traffic of a website.

Google AdSense sends personal data and information to Alphabet Inc. in the USA, which includes the IP address and is required for the recording and invoicing of the advertisements displayed. These personal data are saved and processed in the USA. Alphabet Inc. never discloses the personal data collected using this technical process to third parties.

Google AdSense is explained in greater detail under this link https://www.google.de/intl/de/adsense/start/. More information and options for the deactivation of this advertising placement can be found at http://www.google.com/settings/u/0/ads/anonymous?hl=de (link "Ads setting", then "Deactivate").

bb) Google AdWords

We have integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an online advertising service that allows advertisers to place advertisements both in the search results of Google and in Google's advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to predefine certain keywords, by means of which an advertisement is displayed in the search results of Google exclusively when the user of the search engine accesses search results related to the keyword. In the Google advertising network, the advertisements are distributed to thematically relevant websites using an automated algorithm and following the predefined keywords. The operating company of the services of Google AdWords is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our website by displaying interest-related advertising on the websites of third-party companies and in the search results of the Google search engine, as well as displaying third-party advertising on our website. If a data subject comes to our website via a Google advertisement, Google saves what is known as a conversion cookie to the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. A conversion cookie becomes invalid after thirty days, and is not used to identify the data subject. Until the conversion cookie expires, it is used to determine whether certain sub-pages, for example the shopping basket of an online shop system, are accessed on our website. The conversion cookie allows both us and Google to track whether a data subject that comes to our website via an AdWords advertisement generates sales, i.e. whether a purchase has been completed or aborted.

The data and information collected using the conversion cookie are used by Google to prepare visitor statistics for our website. These in turn are used by us in order to determine the total number of users that are sent to us via AdWords advertisements, and thus to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords advertisement, and to optimise our AdWords advertisements for the future. Neither our company nor any other advertising customers from Google AdWords receive information from Google that could allow the data subject to be identified.

The conversion cookie saves personal information, for example the websites visited by the data subject. For each subsequent visit to our websites, personal data are sent to Google in the USA, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject. These personal data are saved by Google in the USA. Google may disclose the personal data collected using this technical process to third parties.

The data subject can prevent cookies from being used by our website at any time, as already described above, by adjusting the corresponding setting in the internet browser used, and thus permanently opt out. Such a setting in the internet browser would also prevent Google from saving a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. Furthermore, you can delete any cookie saved by Google AdWords at any time using your internet browser or other software programs.

The data subject also has the option at any time of opting out of Google using interest-related advertising. To do this, the data subject must use each of their internet browsers to access the link https://www.google.de/settings/ads and then change the desired settings.

Further information and the applicable privacy policy of Google can be accessed at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

You can also deactivate or opt out of Google advertisements https://privacy.google.com/?hl=de#google-experience wholly or in part. You may also object to this processing of data with effect for the future by clicking here. The subsequently set opt-out cookie and your objection remain valid as long as you do not delete your browser cookies.

i. Opentracker

We have integrated Opentracker. Opentracker is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the recording, collection and evaluation of data regarding the behaviour of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects data, amongst other things, about which website a data subject came to a website from (known as the referrer), which sub-pages of the website are accessed, or how often and for how long a sub-page was viewed. A web analysis is predominantly used for optimisation of a website and for the cost/benefit analysis of online advertising.

The operating company of the Opentracker component is Opentracker, Torenallee 45 - 7.175617 BA Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

The purpose of the Opentracker component is the analysis of visitor traffic on our website. Opentracker uses the data and information obtained, amongst other things, in order to analyse the use of our website, in order to compile online reports for us identifying the activities on our websites, and in order to provide additional services relating to the use of our website.

Opentracker saves a cookie to the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. Saving the cookie allows Opentracker to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website, which we operate and on which an Opentracker component has been integrated, is retrieved, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Opentracker component to send data to Opentracker for purposes of online analysis. Within the framework of this technical process, Opentracker receives knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which is used by Opentracker amongst other things to understand the origin of the visitor and the clicks, and subsequently to facilitate commission invoicing.

The cookie allows personal information to be saved, such as the access time, the location from which the access originated, and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject. For each visit to our websites, these personal data are sent to Opentracker in The Netherlands, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject. These personal data are saved by Opentracker in The Netherlands.

The data subject can prevent cookies from being used by our website at any time, as already described above, by adjusting the corresponding setting in the internet browser used, and thus permanently opt out. Such a setting in the internet browser would also prevent Google from saving a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. Furthermore, you can delete any cookie saved by Opentracker at any time using your internet browser or other software programs.

We would like to explain to you how such networks process your personal data in this context:

a. Facebook

We have integrated components of Facebook on this website. Facebook is a social network.

A social network is a place for social meetings on the internet, an online community which usually allows users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network may serve as a platform for exchanging opinions and experiences, or enable the internet community to provide personal or business-related information. Facebook allows social network users to create private profiles, upload photos and socialise by making friend requests, amongst other things.

Facebook's operating company is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, United States. If a data subject lives outside of the United States or Canada, the controller responsible for processing personal data is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website - which we operate and on which a Facebook component (Facebook button) has been integrated - is accessed, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Facebook component to download a display of the corresponding Facebook component of Facebook. An overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=de_DE. During the course of this technical procedure, Facebook gains knowledge of what specific subpage of our website was visited by the data subject.

Every time a data subject accesses our website and is simultaneously logged into Facebook, Facebook detects which specific subpage of our website was visited by the data subject for the entire duration of each respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and associated with the data subject's respective Facebook account. If the data subject clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, e.g. the "Like" button, or if the data subject posts a comment, Facebook then assigns this data and information to the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and stores the personal data.

The Facebook component sends Facebook information that the data subject has visited our website, provided that the data subject is logged into Facebook at the time the website is accessed; this occurs regardless of whether the data subject clicks the Facebook component or not.
