The GDPR enters into force EU-wide on May 25, 2018. The GDPR is a regulation of the European Union which improves and harmonizes the regulations on data protection across the EU. The GDPR requires companies to disclose in an open and transparent way how personal data is collected, stored, and used.
We assume that the affiliate tracking can contain personal data and therefore the GDPR applies.
We see ourselves as order data processors
In the following, we would like to give you some recommendations for action. But we emphasize that this does not constitute legal advice and we take no responsibility for its correctness.
Verify if, where and how you process personal data on your site. Please note that the IP address of users is considered personal data..
The operators of this website use the service of adgoal. Adgoal is a service provider who develops marketing solutions and supports website operators to generate advertising revenue. The products of adgoal have no influence on the contents provided by the website operator. They work purely context-sensitive (content-related). If a user clicks a link to an external page, adgoal automatically checks whether an affiliate / partner link can be generated from this link where the website operator can earn money through advertising cost reimbursement. If this is the case, you will be forwarded to the advertiser via its affiliate program, who may operate it in an affiliate network. For this purpose, the advertiser or the affiliate network will install a cookie in order to trace the origin of the order. This allows the advertiser to recognize that you have clicked the partner link on this website.
Our recommendations are not complete and will be updated from time to time. The information published here is only an excerpt of what we consider relevant to us. You are neither entitled to completeness of the data nor can we guarantee its legal content. For questions about the GDPR please visit http://www.bvdw-datenschutz.de/ for a very good source of information. Alternatively, please contact your data protection officer or an attorney, as we cannot nor are permitted to provide legal advise.
