2. Gen­er­al in­form­a­tion and man­dat­ory in­form­a­tion

Pri­vacy

The op­er­at­ors of these pages take the pro­tec­tion of your per­son­al data very ser­i­ously. We treat your per­son­al data con­fid­en­tially and ac­cord­ing to the legal data pro­tec­tion reg­u­la­tions as well as this data pro­tec­tion ex­plan­a­tion.

If you use this web­site, vari­ous per­son­al data will be col­lec­ted. Per­son­al data is data with which you can be per­son­ally iden­ti­fied. This Pri­vacy Policy ex­plains what in­form­a­tion we col­lect and how we use it. It also ex­plains how and for what pur­pose this is done.

We would like to point out that data trans­mis­sion over the In­ter­net (e.g. com­mu­nic­a­tion by e-mail) can be sub­ject to se­cur­ity gaps. A com­plete pro­tec­tion of the data against ac­cess by third parties is not pos­sible.
Re­fer­ence to the re­spons­ible of­fice

The re­spons­ible body for data pro­cessing on this web­site is:

Siegmar Gerken
In­ter­­n­a­­tion­al In­sti­­tute of Core Evolu­­tion and CoreSoma
POBox 806
Men­­do­­cino
CA 95460, USA

E-mail: in­fo@­coree­volu­tion.com

The re­spons­ible body is the nat­ur­al or legal per­son who alone or jointly with oth­ers de­cides on the pur­poses and means of pro­cessing per­son­al data (e.g. names, e-mail ad­dresses, etc.).

Re­voc­a­tion of your con­sent to data pro­cessing

Many data pro­cessing op­er­a­tions are only pos­sible with your ex­press con­sent. You can re­voke your con­sent at any time. For this pur­pose, an in­form­al e-mail no­ti­fic­a­tion to us is suf­fi­cient. The leg­al­ity of the data pro­cessing car­ried out until the re­voc­a­tion re­mains un­af­fected by the re­voc­a­tion.

Right to ob­ject to data col­lec­tion in spe­cial cases and to dir­ect ad­vert­ising (Art. 21 DSGVO)

If data pro­cessing is car­ried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f DSGVO, you have the right at any time to ob­ject to the pro­cessing of your per­son­al data for reas­ons arising from your par­tic­u­lar situ­ation; this also ap­plies to pro­fil­ing based on these pro­vi­sions. The re­spect­ive legal basis on which a pro­cessing is based can be found in this data pro­tec­tion de­clar­a­tion. If you file an ob­jec­tion, we will no longer pro­cess your per­son­al data con­cerned un­less we can prove com­pel­ling reas­ons for the pro­cessing worthy of pro­tec­tion which out­weigh your in­terests, rights and freedoms or the pro­cessing serves the as­ser­tion, ex­er­cise or de­fence of legal claims (ob­jec­tion ac­cord­ing to Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO).

If your per­son­al data are pro­cessed for the pur­pose of dir­ect ad­vert­ising, you have the right to ob­ject at any time to the pro­cessing of your per­son­al data for the pur­pose of such ad­vert­ising; this also ap­plies to pro­fil­ing in­so­far as it is con­nec­ted with such dir­ect ad­vert­ising. If you ob­ject, your per­son­al data will no longer be used for dir­ect mar­ket­ing pur­poses (ob­jec­tion ac­cord­ing to Art. 21 para. 2 DSGVO).

Right of ap­peal to the com­pet­ent su­per­vis­ory au­thor­ity

In the event of in­fringe­ments of the DSGVO, the per­sons con­cerned have the right to ap­peal to a su­per­vis­ory au­thor­ity, in par­tic­u­lar in the Mem­ber State of their ha­bitu­al res­id­ence, work­place or place of pre­sumed in­fringe­ment. The right of ap­peal shall be without pre­ju­dice to other ad­min­is­trat­ive or ju­di­cial rem­ed­ies.
Right to data trans­fer­ab­il­ity

You have the right to have data which we pro­cess auto­mat­ic­ally on the basis of your con­sent or in ful­fil­ment of a con­tract handed over to you or to a third party in a com­mon, ma­chine-read­able format. If you re­quest the dir­ect trans­fer of the data to an­oth­er re­spons­ible per­son, this will only be done as far as it is tech­nic­ally feas­ible.

In­form­a­tion, block­ing, de­le­tion and cor­rec­tion

With­in the frame­work of the ap­plic­able legal pro­vi­sions, you have the right at any time to free in­form­a­tion about your stored per­son­al data, their ori­gin and re­cip­i­ent and the pur­pose of data pro­cessing and, if ap­plic­able, a right to cor­rec­tion, block­ing or de­le­tion of this data. You can con­tact us at any time at the ad­dress given in the im­print for this and other ques­tions on the sub­ject of per­son­al data.
Right to lim­it­a­tion of pro­cessing

You have the right to re­quest the re­stric­tion of the pro­cessing of your per­son­al data. You can con­tact us at any time at the ad­dress given in the im­print. The right to re­stric­tion of the pro­cessing ex­ists in the fol­low­ing cases:

  • If you dis­pute the ac­cur­acy of your per­son­al data stored with us, we usu­ally need time to veri­fy this. For the dur­a­tion of the ex­am­in­a­tion you have the right to de­mand the re­stric­tion of the pro­cessing of your per­son­al data.
  • If the pro­cessing of your per­son­al data has taken place un­law­fully, you can de­mand the re­stric­tion of data pro­cessing in­stead of de­le­tion.
  • If we no longer need your per­son­al data, but you need it for the ex­er­cise, de­fence or as­ser­tion of legal claims, you have the right to de­mand the re­stric­tion of the pro­cessing of your per­son­al data in­stead of de­le­tion.
  • If you have lodged an ob­jec­tion pur­su­ant to Art. 21 Para. 1 DSGVO, a bal­ance must be struck between your and our in­terests. As long as it is not yet clear whose in­terests pre­dom­in­ate, you have the right to de­mand that the pro­cessing of your per­son­al data be re­stric­ted.

If you have re­stric­ted the pro­cessing of your per­son­al data, these data may only be pro­cessed - apart from their stor­age - with your con­sent or for the as­ser­tion, ex­er­cise or de­fence of legal claims or for the pro­tec­tion of the rights of an­oth­er nat­ur­al or legal per­son or for reas­ons of an im­port­ant pub­lic in­terest of the European Union or a Mem­ber State.

Ob­jec­tion to ad­vert­ising e-mails

We hereby ob­ject to the use of con­tact data pub­lished with­in the scope of the im­print ob­lig­a­tion to send un­so­li­cited ad­vert­ising and in­form­a­tion ma­ter­i­al. The op­er­at­ors of this web­site ex­pressly re­serve the right to take legal ac­tion against un­so­li­cited mail­ing or e-mail­ing of spam and other sim­il­ar ad­vert­ising ma­ter­i­als.

3. Data col­lec­tion on our web­site

Cook­ies

Some of the In­ter­net pages use so-called cook­ies. Cook­ies do not dam­age your com­puter and do not con­tain vir­uses. Cook­ies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more ef­fect­ive and safer. Cook­ies are small text files that are stored on your com­puter by your browser.

Most of the cook­ies we use are so-called "ses­sion cook­ies". They are auto­mat­ic­ally de­leted at the end of your visit. Other cook­ies re­main stored on your ter­min­al until you de­lete them. These cook­ies en­able us to re­cog­nize your browser dur­ing your next visit.

You can set your browser so that you are in­formed about the set­ting of cook­ies and only allow cook­ies in in­di­vidu­al cases, ac­cept cook­ies for cer­tain cases or gen­er­ally ex­clude them and ac­tiv­ate the auto­mat­ic de­le­tion of cook­ies when clos­ing the browser. If cook­ies are de­ac­tiv­ated, the func­tion­al­ity of this web­site may be re­stric­ted.

Cook­ies which are ne­ces­sary for the elec­tron­ic com­mu­nic­a­tion pro­cess or for the pro­vi­sion of cer­tain func­tions re­ques­ted by you (e.g. shop­ping bas­ket func­tion) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The web­site op­er­at­or has a jus­ti­fied in­terest in the stor­age of cook­ies for the tech­nic­ally error-free and op­tim­ised pro­vi­sion of its ser­vices. In­so­far as other cook­ies (e.g. cook­ies for ana­lys­ing your surf­ing be­ha­viour) are stored, these are dealt with sep­ar­ately in this data pro­tec­tion de­clar­a­tion.

Serv­er log files

The pro­vider of the pages auto­mat­ic­ally col­lects and stores in­form­a­tion in so-called serv­er log files, which your browser auto­mat­ic­ally trans­mits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser ver­sion
  • used op­er­at­ing sys­tem
  • Re­fer­rer URL
  • Host­name of the ac­cess­ing com­puter
  • Time of the serv­er re­quest
  • IP ad­dress

This data will not be merged with other data sources.

This data is col­lec­ted on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The web­site op­er­at­or has a jus­ti­fied in­terest in the tech­nic­ally error-free present­a­tion and op­tim­isa­tion of his web­site - for this pur­pose the serv­er log files must be re­cor­ded.

Contact form

If you send us en­quir­ies via the con­tact form, your de­tails from the en­quiry form in­clud­ing the con­tact data you provided there will be stored by us for the pur­pose of pro­cessing the en­quiry and in the event of fol­low-up ques­tions. These data will not be passed on without your con­sent.

The pro­cessing of the data entered in the con­tact form is there­fore car­ried out ex­clus­ively on the basis of your con­sent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can re­voke this con­sent at any time. For this pur­pose, an in­form­al e-mail no­ti­fic­a­tion to us is suf­fi­cient. The leg­al­ity of the data pro­cessing op­er­a­tions car­ried out until the re­voc­a­tion re­mains un­af­fected by the re­voc­a­tion.

The data entered by you in the con­tact form will re­main with us until you re­quest de­le­tion, re­voke your con­sent to stor­age or the pur­pose for data stor­age no longer ap­plies (e.g. after your re­quest has been pro­cessed). Man­dat­ory legal pro­vi­sions - in par­tic­u­lar re­ten­tion peri­ods - re­main un­af­fected.
In­quiry by e-mail, tele­phone or fax

If you con­tact us by e-mail, tele­phone or fax, your re­quest in­clud­ing all per­son­al data (name, re­quest) will be stored and pro­cessed by us for the pur­pose of pro­cessing your re­quest. We do not pass on this data without your con­sent.

This data is pro­cessed on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO if your re­quest is re­lated to the per­form­ance of a con­tract or is ne­ces­sary for the im­ple­ment­a­tion of pre-con­trac­tu­al meas­ures. In all other cases, pro­cessing is based on your con­sent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO) and / or on our le­git­im­ate in­terests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO), as we have a le­git­im­ate in­terest in the ef­fect­ive pro­cessing of en­quir­ies ad­dressed to us.

The data you send us via con­tact re­quests will re­main with us until you re­quest de­le­tion, re­voke your con­sent to stor­age or the pur­pose for data stor­age no longer ap­plies (e.g. after your re­quest has been pro­cessed). Man­dat­ory stat­utory pro­vi­sions - in par­tic­u­lar stat­utory re­ten­tion peri­ods - re­main un­af­fected.

4. So­cial media

So­cial media plu­gins with Shar­iff

On our pages so­cial media plu­gins are used (e.g. Face­book, Twit­ter, Google+, In­s­tagram, Pin­terest, XING, LinkedIn, Tumblr).

You can usu­ally re­cog­nize the plu­gins by their re­spect­ive so­cial media logos. In order to guar­an­tee data pro­tec­tion on our web­site, we only use these plu­gins to­geth­er with the so-called "Shar­iff" solu­tion. This ap­plic­a­tion pre­vents the plu­gins in­teg­rated on our web­site from trans­fer­ring data to the re­spect­ive pro­vider the first time you enter the site.

Only when you ac­tiv­ate the re­spect­ive plu­gin by click­ing on the cor­res­pond­ing but­ton will a dir­ect con­nec­tion to the pro­vider's serv­er be es­tab­lished (con­sent). As soon as you ac­tiv­ate the plu­gin, the re­spect­ive pro­vider re­ceives the in­form­a­tion that you have vis­ited our site with your IP ad­dress. If you are logged into your re­spect­ive so­cial media ac­count (e.g. Face­book) at the same time, the re­spect­ive pro­vider can as­sign the visit to our pages to your user ac­count.

Activ­at­ing the plu­gin con­sti­tutes con­sent with­in the mean­ing of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. You can re­voke this con­sent at any time with ef­fect for the fu­ture.

5. News­let­ter

The fol­low­ing in­form­a­tion will in­form you about the con­tents of our news­let­ter as well as the re­gis­tra­tion, dis­patch and stat­ist­ic­al eval­u­ation pro­ced­ures and your rights of ob­jec­tion. By sub­scrib­ing to our news­let­ter, you de­clare your agree­ment with the re­ceipt and the de­scribed pro­ced­ures.

Con­tent of the news­let­ter

We send news­let­ters, e-mails and other elec­tron­ic no­ti­fic­a­tions con­tain­ing ad­vert­ising in­form­a­tion (here­in­after re­ferred to as "news­let­ters") only with the con­sent of the re­cip­i­ent or a legal per­mis­sion. If the con­tents of the news­let­ter are spe­cific­ally de­scribed with­in the scope of re­gis­tra­tion, they are de­cis­ive for the con­sent of the user.

Double opt-in and log­ging

The re­gis­tra­tion to our news­let­ter takes place in a so-called Double-Opt-In pro­ced­ure. This means that you will re­ceive an e-mail after your re­gis­tra­tion in which you will be asked to con­firm your re­gis­tra­tion. This con­firm­a­tion is ne­ces­sary so that nobody can re­gister with ex­tern­al e-mail ad­dresses.

The re­gis­tra­tions for the news­let­ter are logged in order to be able to prove the re­gis­tra­tion pro­cess ac­cord­ing to the legal re­quire­ments. This in­cludes the stor­age of the re­gis­tra­tion and con­firm­a­tion time, as well as the IP ad­dress. Like­wise the changes of your data stored with MailChimp are logged.

Use of the "MailChimp" ship­ping ser­vice

The news­let­ter is sent via "MailChimp", a news­let­ter dis­tri­bu­tion plat­form of the US pro­vider Rock­et Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, At­lanta, GA 30308, USA.

The e-mail ad­dresses of our news­let­ter re­cip­i­ents, as well as their other data de­scribed in the con­text of this no­tice, are stored on the serv­ers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this in­form­a­tion to send and eval­u­ate news­let­ters on our be­half. Fur­ther­more, ac­cord­ing to its own in­form­a­tion, MailChimp may use this data to op­tim­ise or im­prove its own ser­vices, e.g. for the tech­nic­al op­tim­isa­tion of the dis­patch and present­a­tion of the news­let­ter or for eco­nom­ic pur­poses in order to de­term­ine from which coun­tries the re­cip­i­ents come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our news­let­ter re­cip­i­ents to write to them or pass them on to third parties.

We trust in the re­li­ab­il­ity and IT and data se­cur­ity of MailChimp. MailChimp is cer­ti­fied under the US-EU data pro­tec­tion agree­ment "Pri­vacy Shield" and is there­fore com­mit­ted to com­ply­ing with EU data pro­tec­tion reg­u­la­tions. You can view the pri­vacy policy of MailChimp here.

Cre­den­tials

To sub­scribe to the news­let­ter, you must enter your e-mail ad­dress. We also need your first and last name. This in­form­a­tion is used to per­son­al­ize the news­let­ter.

Stat­ist­ic­al sur­vey and ana­lyses

The news­let­ters con­tain a so-called "web-beacon", i.e. a pixel-sized file that is re­trieved from the MailChimp serv­er when the news­let­ter is opened. With­in the scope of this re­triev­al, tech­nic­al in­form­a­tion such as in­form­a­tion about the browser and your sys­tem, as well as your IP ad­dress and time of re­triev­al are first col­lec­ted. This in­form­a­tion is used to tech­nic­ally im­prove the ser­vices on the basis of the tech­nic­al data or the tar­get groups and their read­ing be­ha­viour on the basis of their re­triev­al loc­a­tions (which can be de­term­ined with the help of the IP ad­dress) or ac­cess times.

The stat­ist­ic­al sur­veys also in­clude de­term­in­ing wheth­er the news­let­ters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For tech­nic­al reas­ons, this in­form­a­tion can be as­signed to the in­di­vidu­al news­let­ter re­cip­i­ents. However, it is neither our nor MailChimp's aim to ob­serve in­di­vidu­al users. The eval­u­ations serve us much more to re­cog­nize the read­ing habits of our users and to adapt our con­tents to them or to send dif­fer­ent con­tents ac­cord­ing to the in­terests of our users.
On­line ac­cess and data man­age­ment

There are cases in which we dir­ect the news­let­ter re­cip­i­ents to the MailChimp web­sites. For ex­ample, our news­let­ters con­tain a link with which the news­let­ter re­cip­i­ents can call up the news­let­ters on­line (e.g. in the case of dis­play prob­lems in the e-mail pro­gram). Fur­ther­more, news­let­ter re­cip­i­ents can sub­sequently cor­rect their data, such as the e-mail ad­dress. Like­wise, the pri­vacy policy of MailChimp is only avail­able on their site.

In this con­text, we poin­ted out that cook­ies are used on the MailChimp web­sites and that per­son­al data is pro­cessed by MailChimp, its part­ners and ser­vice pro­viders (e.g. Google Ana­lyt­ics). We have no in­flu­ence on this data col­lec­tion. Fur­ther in­form­a­tion can be found in MailChimp's pri­vacy policy. In ad­di­tion, we draw your at­ten­tion to the pos­sib­il­it­ies of ob­jec­tion to the data col­lec­tion for ad­vert­ising pur­poses on the web­sites http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ and http://www.your­on­linechoices.com/ (for the European area).

Can­cel­la­tion/re­voc­a­tion

You can can­cel the re­ceipt of our news­let­ter at any time, i.e. re­voke your con­sent. At the same time, your con­sent to its dis­patch via MailChimp and the stat­ist­ic­al ana­lyses will ex­pire. A sep­ar­ate re­voc­a­tion of the dis­patch via MailChimp or the stat­ist­ic­al ana­lys­is is un­for­tu­nately not pos­sible.

You will find a link to can­cel the news­let­ter at the end of each news­let­ter.

Legal basis Basic data pro­tec­tion reg­u­la­tion

In ac­cord­ance with the pro­vi­sions of the Data Pro­tec­tion Ordin­ance (DSGVO), which came into force on 25 May 2018, we would like to in­form you that your con­sent to the send­ing of e-mail ad­dresses is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a, 7 DSGVO and § 7 Para. 2 No. 3 or Para. 3 UWG. The use of the MailChimp ship­ping ser­vice, the per­form­ance of stat­ist­ic­al sur­veys and ana­lyses as well as the log­ging of the re­gis­tra­tion pro­ced­ure are car­ried out on the basis of our le­git­im­ate in­terests pur­su­ant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our in­terest is dir­ec­ted to­wards the use of a user-friendly and se­cure news­let­ter sys­tem which serves our busi­ness in­terests as well as the ex­pect­a­tions of the users.

We would also like to point out that you may ob­ject at any time to the fu­ture pro­cessing of your per­son­al data in ac­cord­ance with the stat­utory pro­vi­sions pur­su­ant to Art. 21 DSGVO. In par­tic­u­lar, you may ob­ject to the pro­cessing of your per­son­al data for the pur­poses of dir­ect mar­ket­ing.

6. Plu­gins and tools

Google Web Fonts

This page uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uni­form dis­play of fonts. The Google Fonts are in­stalled loc­ally. There is no con­nec­tion to Google serv­ers.
