Pursuant to our statutory obligations, we would like to inform you about the collection and use of your personal data when using our browser extension “Bookmark Sidebar”
When you use our extension, personal data about you will be collected. This may happen by you entering the data yourself, for example your e-mail address. But our system also collects your data automatically, for example information about our operating system. This happens irrespective of the device or the software that you use our extension.
All data that you enter in our extension is provided voluntarily; there are no disadvantages to you if you do not provide data. But without certain data, we are unable to provide services or to conclude contracts. Whenever such information is necessary, we will point it out to you.
This extension is only collecting user’s personal data within the framework of the existing data-protection law, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The legal terms used in the text are defined in Art. 4 of the GDPR.
The GDPR allows data processing in three cases in particular:
- in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR, when processing your personal data is necessary for negotiating, concluding or performing a contract;
- in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, if the balancing of interests leads to the conclusion that the processing is necessary to protect our legitimate interests; this means in particular our interests to analyse, optimise and secure the offers on our extension – meaning primarily the analysis of user behaviour and storage of access data as well as the use of third-party providers.

We collect inventory data (for example name, address and e-mail address, possibly services used) insofar as they are required for establishing, defining or amending a contract between us and the user.
We also collect usage data (for example visits to the pages of the extension, details about your configuration) in order to identify and implement possible improvements to the extension. The collection of this data requires your explicit consent.
The legal basis for this data processing are our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR in analysing the extension and your use, possibly also the statutory permission to store data as part of the negotiation of a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR.
Whenever we ask you for your consent for the processing of your data, we will inform you in clear language and in an easily accessible way about the cases for which you will be granting your consent. Any consent that we ask you for is voluntary. Any advantage that you wish to gain by granting consent is also available without consent; simply ask us.
Regarding any consent, you have the right to revoke any consent given to us for the processing of your personal data at any time. You just need to contact us without any particular formal requirement, for example through our contact form, an e-mail to the e-mail address indicated in the “About Us” section or a link to unsubscribe (if offered by us). Your withdrawal has no effect on the legality of the data processing carried out up to that point.
Your data will generally only remain stored for as long as the purpose of the relevant data processing requires it. Storage beyond that is mainly possible when it is still necessary for us to pursue our rights or for our other legitimate interests or if we are compelled by law to keep your data stored (for example based on tax-law requirements to maintain files, which is generally 6 years, but may last up to 10 years).
You may request us anytime to provide information about the personal data stored about you free of charge. To avoid misuse, this will require personal identification.
Deletion, Correction, Limitation
You may at any time demand from us that we correct (or complete) incorrect data as well as a limitation of the processing of data or deletion of your data. This applies in particular if the reason for processing the data is no longer valid, if a required consent has been revoked and there is no other legal basis or if our data processing is unlawful. We will then correct, block or even delete your personal data without delay as far as permitted by law.
The right to object to advertisement is governed by our text regarding consent:
Regarding any consent, you have the right to revoke any consent given to us for the processing of your personal data at any time. You just need to contact us without any particular formal requirement, for example through our contact form, an e-mail to the e-mail address indicated in the “Contact” section. Your withdrawal has no effect on the legality of the data processing carried out up to that point.
You may request us to transfer the data stored about you in machine-readable form.
If you feel that our data processing has violated any of your rights, you may file a complaint with the competent regulatory agency.
Encryption of Data Entry
When you enter data on one of the extension's pages, whether in a contact form, when submitting language variables in the translation overview or for payment purposes, the transfer of the data to our server is encrypted. Thus, third parties can not read what you enter.
When you fill out a contact form or when you send us an e-mail or another electronic message, your information will be stored for the processing of the request, for possible follow-up questions or for other related questions and will only be used to follow up with the request.
Your data will be transferred in an encrypted manner, preventing third parties from reading your data while it is being entered.
Basis for this storage is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR, which you grant us by filling in the contact form or by your other requests. You may revoke this consent at any time, you just need to contact us without any particular formal requirement (for example in the contact form or by e-mail). This withdrawal has no effect on the legality of the data processing that has occurred up to that point.
Your data remains stored for as long as the processing of the request requires, in particular as long as the storage is still necessary to perform the contract, to pursue our rights or for our other legitimate interests or we are compelled by law to keep your data stored (for example based on tax-law requirements to maintain files).
Google Web Fonts
The extension is using so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts for the offered languages. When using the extension, your browser loads the relevant web fonts into the browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.
For this purpose, the browser you are using needs to connect to Google's servers. This will give Google knowledge that the extension is being used via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a consistent and appealing presentation. This is a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font will be used by your computer.
You can prevent the use of web fonts in the extension via the offered settings. If you have any questions or require assistance with disabling them, please do not hesitate to contact us (contact details above).
The basis for the transfer of your data to our partners is primarily the processing of your contract data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR and our legitimate interest in a technologically perfect online offering and its design and optimisation in an economically efficient manner pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR.
