2c. Processing of Page Insights

Facebook provides us with anonymized statistics and insights for our Facebook page, which help us to understand the types of actions that people take on our Page (so-called “Page Insights”). These Page Insights are created based on specific information about individuals who have visited our Page. This processing of personal data is carried out by Facebook and by us as joint controllers. The processing serves our legitimate interest to evaluate the types of actions being taken on our Page and to improve our Page based on these findings. The legal basis for this processing is Article 6, paragraph 1, letter f of GDPR. We are in no case able to assign the information obtained via Page Insights to a specific Facebook profile using the “Like” data for our Page. We have reached an agreement with Facebook to share joint responsibility for the processing, in which the division of data protection obligations between ourselves and Facebook is set out. Details about the processing of personal data for creating Page Insights and the agreement entered into between ourselves and Facebook can be found at https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/information_about_page_insights_data.

 

2d. Processing Facebook page data

We also process data that you make available to us via our Facebook Pages. Such information might be your Facebook user name, your player name in one of our games, contact details or a communication to us. We only process this personal data if we have previously expressly asked you to share this data with us, for example as part of a survey or a competition. This processing will be done by us as the sole data controller. If you have communicated data to us because you are taking part in a contest, we will only process this if it is necessary to send you a prize. After delivery of the prize, or if you do not win, your data will be deleted. The legal basis for this processing is Article 6, paragraph 1, letter b, of GDPR. Personal data that we have collected through surveys will be processed in anonymized form, to ensure that customers are happy with our offers. This processing serves our legitimate interest of continuously improving our offers, and the legal basis therefore is Article 6, paragraph 1, letter f, of GDPR.

 

3. Google Privacy

Below is our privacy policy in association with Google products.

 

3a. Google Analytics

We use the Google Analytics service from Google USA 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043 ) to analyze our website visitors. Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the online product or service by users is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online products and services by users, to compile reports on the activities within these online products and services and to provide us with further services associated with the use of these online products and services and the use of the internet. Pseudonymous user profiles can be created from the processed data. We use Google Analytics only with IP anonymization enabled. This means that Google will truncate the IP address of users within Member States of the European Union or in other states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser is not merged with other Google data. Users can prevent cookies from being stored by adjusting the settings to their browser software accordingly. The legal basis for the use of this service is Article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, letter f, of GDPR. Users can prevent the collection of data generated by cookies by downloading and installing the browser plug-in that is available at the following link:  http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

 

3b. Google Marketing Services

We use the Google marketing and remarketing service from Google USA (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043) to analyze our website visitors.These services allow us to display advertisements in a more targeted manner in order to present advertisements of interest to users. Through remarketing ads and products are displayed to users relating to an interest established by activity on other websites within the Google Network. For these purposes, a code is used by Google when our website is accessed and what are referred to as (re)marketing tags are incorporated into the website. With their help, an individual cookie, i.e. a small file, is stored on the user’s device (comparable technologies may also be used instead of cookies). Cookies can be set by various domains, including google.com, doubleclick.net, invitemedia.com, admeld.com, googlesyndication.com or googleadservices.com. This file records which apps users have visited, which content they are interested in and which offers have been used. In addition, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, the length of the visit as well as any additional data about the use of the online products and services are stored. The IP address of users is also recorded, although we would like inform you that within the framework of Google Analytics, IP addresses within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area are truncated. All user data will only be processed as pseudonymous data. Google does not store any names or e-mail addresses. All displayed ads are therefore not displayed specifically for a person, but for the owner of the cookie. This information is collected by Google and transmitted to and stored by servers in the USA. One of the Google marketing services we use is the online advertising program Google AdWords. In the case of Google AdWords, each AdWords customer receives a different conversion cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked through the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected by the cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. AdWords customers see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they will not receive any information that personally identifies users. We may include third-party advertisements based on the Google Marketing Service called DoubleClick. DoubleClick uses cookies to enable Google and its partner websites to place ads based on users’ visits to this website or other websites on the Internet. Google services make use of Google’s Tag Manager.

6d. PocketLab Notebook Data

Within the PocketLab Notebook app, there are two types of student accounts. Standard PocketLab student accounts are created manually by the student’s teacher. The students are given a class code, a student code, and a username to log in provided by the teacher. We recommend the teacher use aliases for the students rather than student names when creating student accounts. Google PocketLab Student accounts are created through an integration with Google Classroom. If a teacher opts to use the Google Classroom integration when creating PocketLab Classes and student accounts, the student accounts are created using the student’s Google Classroom credentials. The student username in the PocketLab app will be generated by their display name in Google Classroom. Teachers can adjust this in their Google Classroom accounts. Teachers do not have to use the Google Classroom integration to use the PocketLab software with their students. The PocketLab app stores student usernames in the teacher’s roster and as avatars when students work on lesson assignments within the app. The purpose of this is to allow the teacher to see the work of their students within the app. 

 

6e. Location Privacy

Location data can enhance measurement data collected with the weather and climate sensors on PocketLab Air, PocketLab Weather, PocketLab Thermo, and PocketLab Voyager. The software gives users the option to allow permission to location data from their connected device. The location data does not come from the PocketLab sensor. The location data is graphed alongside weather and climate data from PocketLab sensors so that users can visualize that measurement data on a map. If a user saves this measurement data in their account, this data is stored by the app. This can be deleted at any time by the user and the user can always turn off the location data permission. 

PocketLab software does collect usage statistics to better understand how our software is used. We do not share this data with third parties. This data is anonymous with student accounts.
