Privacy Policy

We respect and protect your privacy. In the following General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we would like to give you an overview of which data is collected and processed for which purpose. We also inform you about your rights.

If you have any questions about this privacy policy, please contact our data protection officer at angi@angi.de.

To whom does this privacy policy apply?

When we process personal information, it means that we collect, store, use, transmit or delete it.

Such is the personal data of:

  • interested parties, customers, investors or employees of Angi GmbH who appear to be natural persons

  • all other natural persons who are in contact with us, e.g. representatives of legal

  • visitors to our website

What personal data do we collect from you?

We collect personal information from you when you contact us, e.g. as an interested party or customer.

This means in particular:

  • you are interested in our offers,

  • you have contacted us through our web-site form,

  • you have contacted us via email or phone call,

  • you already use our products and services in the framework of an existing business relationship,

  • we already use your products and services in the framework of an existing business relationship

 

We process the following personal data:

  • personal contact data, full name, address, email address, phone number

  • personal contact data, full name, address, email address, phone number if you are a legal representative of the employee;

  • payment information;

  • information about your interests and wishes which you tell us about: e.g. via our customer dialogue or our website.

 

Data we receive over the Internet

  • General retrievable data / log files: For technical reasons, every time a website is accessed, data is transmitted from your computer to us, such as the date and time of you visiting one of our pages, your browser type, the browser settings and the operating system, the last page you visited, the amount of data transmitted and the access status (file transfer, file not found etc.). This data is considered to be regular non-personal data. In addition, however, your computer usually also sends us your IP address, which in individual cases may be personal. We use the log file data solely to ensure the functionality of our services (such as failure analysis, system security, and protection against misuse).

  • Cookies: To make visiting of our website easier, we transfer so-called cookies to your computer. Cookies are small text files that can be used to identify your computer. They do not interfere with the operating system of your computer. Among other things, we use cookies to measure and control the frequency of page views and general site navigation. You can block the use of cookies. Under certain circumstances, however, individual functions of our offer might not be used. To block the use of cookies, please also refer to the instructions for your browser software.

  • Details of your IP address: Your IP address, which in many cases is sent to us, is a globally valid identifier of your computer that is unique at the time of assignment by your internet service provider. An IP address consists of four numbered blocks separated by dots. In most cases, you as a private user will not use a consistent IP address, since you will only be assigned this temporarily by your provider (so-called „dynamic IP address“). Your provider can sort out which IP address was assigned to which of its clients at what time. For other people, including us, the recording of assignment of a dynamic IP address to a specific person is usually not possible. This is different only in the case of a permanently assigned IP address (so-called „static IP address“), which in principle makes possible a clear assignment of the user data via this feature. Except for the purpose of tracking unauthorized access to our offer on the Internet, we generally consider this data to be non-personal, but evaluate it only on an anonymous basis, to detect which of our sites are favoured, how many accesses are made daily and the like.

 

Statistics Assessment Tools

For individual services of our enterprise we collect additional data. These are partially used for statistical purposes. For example, it shows how often our pages are accessed so we can graph out the basics for our media data. In addition, we also want to get an overview of our online offers which are particularly in demand.

 

Plugins

  • Plugins are offers from third party companies such as Google. They help you to connect to these providers. Sometimes only data about the browser performance is transmitted. However, if you actively use plugins (for example, within your Google profile), this information will also be transferred. Below you can find out more about the individual plugins:

  • On our website we do not use any plugins.

Analytics Tools

This website is hosted by Wix (www.wix.com), which may collect usage data for this website. The visit analysis is completely anonymous.
The data on visitor behavior is collected to find out any problems such as pages not found, search engine problems or unpopular pages. Once the data (number of visitors who see error pages or only one page, etc.) is processed, Wix generates reports for website owners to act on. (layout changes, new content, etc.).
Such data can be:

  • Cookies

  • Anonymized IP addresses

  • Pseudo-anonymized location (based on the anonymized IP address

  • Date and time

  • Title of the accessed page

Embedded Google Maps

  • On our website the map service Google Maps is connected via an API. The provider of the service is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. In order to use the features of Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP address. This information is typically transmitted and stored at Google servers in the United States. As merely a provider of access to this site we have no influence on the data transmission.

Important: You can object to this form of personalization at any time.

  • Balance of interests (Article 6 1f GDPR)
    If necessary, we process your data beyond the actual fulfilment of the contract for the protection of legitimate interests of us or third parties. For example:
    • Data processing with your consent (Article 6 (1a) GDPR)
    If you have consented to the processing of your personal data for specific purposes, the processing of such data shall be considered legal. You can revoke your consent at any time. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent which you have submitted to us before the validity of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), i.e. before 25/05/18. The revocation of consent does not affect the legality of the data processed before the revocation.
    • Due to legal requirements (Art.6 Abs. 1c GDPR) or in the public interest (Art.6 Abs. 1e GDPR)
    As Angi GmbH we are subject to numerous legal obligations (e.g. commercial law, tax laws). Due to these laws, we are committed to store data and publish it in certain cases.

 

Where do we store your data and why?

Who receives your data and why?

In all these cases, we ensure that third parties only have access to personal data that is necessary for the performance of individual tasks.

For third parties outside the European Economic Space (EES), the protection of personal data is handled differently from in the EES. In such cases, we take precautionary measures (such as special contract clauses) to ensure that your personal information is treated with the same care as in the EES.

Very important: Under no circumstances will we sell personal information to third parties.
