9. jameda seal and widget

Seals or widgets of jameda GmbH, St. Cajetan-Straße 41, 81669 Munich, Germany, are integrated on our website. A widget is a small window that displays variable information. Our seal also works in a similar way, i.e. it does not always look the same, but the display changes regularly. Although the corresponding content is displayed on our website, it is retrieved from the jameda servers at that moment. This is the only way to always show the current content, especially the current rating. To do this, a data connection must be established from this internet page to jameda and jameda receives certain technical data (date and time of the visit; the page from which the query is made; internet protocol address (IP address) used, browser type and version, device type, operating system and similar technical information) that is necessary for the content to be delivered. However, this data is only used to provide the content and is not stored or used in any other way. With the integration, we pursue the purpose and the legitimate interest to present current and correct contents on our homepage. The legal basis is Art 6 para. 1 f) DSGVO. We do not store the above-mentioned data due to this integration. Further information on data processing by jameda can be found in the data protection declaration on the https://www.jameda.de/jameda/datenschutz.php website.
