Data Privacy

We, TATONKA GmbH (as operator of the website) take the protection of your personal data and your privacy very seriously. In general you can use our website without leaving any personal data. However, to the extent that such data is collected, saved or used, this happens in accordance with the EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (EU-DSGVO), Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), Telemedia Act (TMG) and other legal provisions. The following privacy statement describes the collection, storage and use of your personal data in connection with the use of the websites www.tatonka.com (
with https://blog.tatonka.com, https://the-trekkin-crew-stories.tatonka.com, https://openfactory.tatonka.com, http://alldaytough.tatonka.com, https://adventskalender.tatonka.com and https://fotowettbewerb.tatonka.com) as well as measures for the protection of this data.

We reserve the right to adapt the content of this data protection declaration from time to time in order to ensure protection in the future, particularly in line with new legal requirements or technical developments. It is therefore recommended that you read our information and notes on data processing at regular intervals. Should you have any questions in connection with the collection, storage or use of personal data, please feel free to contact our Data Protection Officer at any time. The contact details for our data protection officer can be found below.

Acquisition of general information
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider and similar. This is exclusively information that does not allow any conclusions about your person. This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the contents of websites requested by you and is mandatory when using the Internet. Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us in order to optimize our Internet presence and the technology behind it.

SSL Encryption
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

Contact form
If you contact us by e-mail or contact form, the information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your request and for possible follow-up questions.

Catalogue order
When ordering our catalogue, personal data (first and last name, address and email address) are collected and stored. In addition, at the time of ordering, the IP address including the time of order is collected. The collection and use of this data serves exclusively for the processing of the catalogue order. The cancellation of the catalogue is possible at any time by sending an e-mail to info@tatonka.com

Comments
On some of our websites we offer you the possibility to leave comments on the individual contributions. The IP address of the author/addressee will be saved. This storage is for our security in case the author’s comment encroaches on the rights of third parties and/or illegal content is posted. Thus, there is a legitimate interest on our part in the stored data of the author, especially since we may be prosecuted for such legal violations. The data will not be passed on to third parties. A comparison of the data collected in this way with data that may have been collected by other components of our site is also not carried out.

Raffles
If you take part in one of our competitions, we will use your details (e.g. name, e-mail address) to carry out the competition, in particular for information purposes and, if applicable, to send you a prize.

The legal basis for the processing is your consent given when you participate in the competition (Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO). Your data will be deleted when the respective competition has ended and the prizes have been distributed. Your data will only be used for other purposes, e.g. advertising, if you have given your explicit consent. Your data will only be passed on to third parties if a partner company is involved in the competition and needs your data e.g. for sending the prize. If a partner company is involved in the competition, we will clearly point this out in the conditions of participation in the competition.

Deletion or blocking of data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as required by the various storage periods provided for by law. After the respective purpose has ceased to exist or these periods have expired, the corresponding data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

Related Links
This privacy statement is only valid for our website and its subpages. Our website also contains links to other hosts, which are not covered by this privacy statement (e.g. Twitter). If you leave our website by clicking on a link, it is recommended that you carefully read the privacy statement of every website, which collects personal data.

Use of Matomo (formerly Piwik)
This website uses Piwik, a web analytics open-source software. Piwik uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address anonymized prior to its storage) will be stored on the server of the service provider in Germany. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)
In order to display our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this website. Google Web Fonts are transferred to your browser’s cache to avoid multiple downloads. If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts or prevents access, content will be displayed in a default font.

Calling up script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. It is theoretically possible – although it is currently unclear whether and for what purposes – that operators of such libraries collect data.

The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Use of Google Maps
This website uses Google Maps API to visually display geographic information. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data on the use of the map functions by visitors. You can find more detailed information about data processing by Google in the Google data protection information. There you can also change your personal data protection settings in the data protection centre.

You can find detailed instructions on how to manage your own data in connection with Google products here.

Google reCAPTCHA
To protect our Internet pages and forms, we use the reCAPTCHA service of the company Google Inc. (“Google”). The service includes sending your IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. This data is subject to Google’s different privacy policy. For more information about Google Captcha’s privacy policy, please visit http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

Embedded YouTube videos
On some of our websites we embed YouTube videos. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection is established to Youtube servers. This tells Youtube which pages you are visiting. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, Youtube can assign your surfing behavior to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your Youtube account first.

If a YouTube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behaviour.

If you’ve disabled cookies for the Google Ad program, you won’t be able to use cookies when watching Youtube videos. However, Youtube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block cookies from being stored in your browser.

You can find further information on data protection at “Youtube” in the provider’s privacy policy:https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/

Use of Google+ recommendation components
We use the “+1” button of the provider Google+ of the company Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter “Google”, on our site.

Each time you visit our website that has such a “+1” component, this component causes the browser you are using to download a corresponding representation of the component from Google. This process informs Google about which specific page of our website is currently being visited.

According to the information provided by Google, a further analysis of your visit will not be carried out if you are not logged in to your Google account.
If you visit our site and are logged in to Google while you are there, Google may collect information about your Google account, the website you are referring to, your IP address and other browser-related information when you click the “+1” button.

This allows your “+1” recommendation to be saved and made publicly available. Your Google “+1” recommendation can then be displayed as a hint in Google services, such as search results or your Google Account, or in other places such as web pages and ads on the Internet, along with your account name and, if applicable, your Google photo. Google may also link your visit to our site to the information we hold about you. Google also records this information to help us improve Google services.

If you wish to prevent Google from collecting the above-mentioned data in the best possible way, you must log out of your Google Account before visiting our website.

Google’s “+1” button privacy notice, which provides further information about Google’s collection, sharing, and use of information, your rights, and your profile options, is available here: https://developers.google.com/+/web/buttons-policy

Use of Facebook components
We use components of the provider facebook.com on our site. Facebook is a service of facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.

Each time you visit our website that is equipped with such a component, this component causes the browser you are using to download a corresponding representation of the component from facebook. This process informs facebook which specific page of our website you are currently visiting.

If you call up our page and are logged in to facebook during this time, facebook recognizes which specific page you are visiting through the information collected by the component and assigns this information to your personal account on facebook. For example, if you click on the “Like” button or post comments, this information is transmitted to your personal user account on facebook and stored there. In addition, the information that you have visited our site is passed on to facebook. This happens regardless of whether you click on the component or not.

If you want to prevent this transmission and storage of data about you and your behavior on our website by facebook, you must log out of facebook before you visit our site. The privacy policy of facebook provides more detailed information on this, in particular on the collection and use of data by facebook, your rights in this regard and the settings options to protect your privacy: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/ – You can find an overview of the Facebook plugins at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/

Use of the Twitter recommendation components
We use components of the provider Twitter on our site. Twitter is a service of Twitter Inc, 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA.

Each time you visit our website that is equipped with such a component, this component causes the browser you are using to download a corresponding display of the component from Twitter. This process informs Twitter which specific page of our website is currently being visited.
We have no influence on the data that Twitter collects in this way, nor on the extent of this data collected by Twitter. To the best of our knowledge, Twitter collects the URL of the respective website visited as well as the IP address of the user, but does not use it for any other purpose than to display the Twitter component. Further information on this can be found in the Twitter privacy policy at http://twitter.com/privacy.

You can change your privacy settings in the account settings at http://twitter.com/account/settings.

Use of Pinterest
We use the pinterest.com service on our website. Pinterest.com is a service provided by Pinterest, Inc, 808 Brannan St, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. The “Pin it” button on our site informs Pinterest that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged on to Pinterest, Pinterest can associate this visit to our site with your Pinterest account and thus link the data. Pinterest stores the data transmitted by clicking the “Pin it” button. The purpose and scope of the data collection, its processing and use, as well as your rights and settings to protect your privacy are described in the Pinterest privacy policy, which can be found at http://pinterest.com/about/privacy/.

To prevent Pinterest from associating your visit to our site with your Pinterest account, you must log out of your Pinterest account before visiting our site.
