What is PII? 

According to the Texas Privacy Act (TPA) and the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Personal Identifiable Information (PII) are “any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This is, for example, name or address data, telephone number, mobile number, bank details or insurance number. 

 

General information on data processing 

All PII that we obtain from you via the website will be processed for the purposes described in more detail below. This is done within the framework of the TPA and GDPR or with your consent. And of course, only when data processing is permitted and if: 

  • you have given your consent, 
  • the data is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract / pre-contractual measures, 
  • the data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation or 
  • the data is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of our company, provided that your interests are not overridden.  

We process and store your PII only for the period of time required to achieve the respective processing purpose or for as long as a legal retention period (in particular commercial and tax law) exists. Once the purpose has been achieved or the retention period has expired, the corresponding data is routinely deleted.

Integration of third-party services and content 

We use content or service offers of third-party providers on the basis of our legitimate interests in order to integrate their content and services (hereinafter uniformly referred to as “content”).  

This always requires that the third-party providers of this content are aware of the IP address of the user, as without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to their browser. The IP address is therefore necessary for the display of this content.  

 Third-party providers may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. The “pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of our website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and may contain, among other things, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, time of visit and other information about the use of our website, as well as being linked to such information from other sources. 

 The following provides an overview of third-party providers and their content, together with links to their privacy policies, which contain further information on the processing of data and so-called opt-out measures, if any: 

 

 The legal basis for the data processing is your consent and our legitimate interest. 

 

Analytics and Advertising 

We would like to show you interesting advertising outside of our website and use various third-party tools and cookies for this purpose. These collect and process information about your activities on our website – for example, which products you are interested in or which Vigilante pages you visit. By knowing what you are looking for and how you use our website, we can adapt our advertising to your needs. And thus increase the likelihood that you will also be shown suitable and interesting advertising outside our website. 

 We also analyze this data to evaluate the relevance of the advertisements and to optimize the advertisements for you. Through the tools, your browser regularly establishes a connection to the server of the tool provider when you visit our website. For some tools, we have no direct influence on what data is processed by the providers. The following PII may be processed by third-party providers: 

  • HTTP header information (e.g., IP address, web browser, website URL, date and time). 
  • measuring pixel-specific data (e.g., pixel ID and cookie ID) 
  • additional information about visits to our website (e.g., orders placed, products clicked on). 

 The legal bases for processing are our legitimate interest and your consent in case of cookies. For further information on Analytics and Cookies please refer to our Cookie Policy. 

 

Authorities and other third parties 

In the event of certain legal incidents, we are obliged to pass on our customers’ data to law enforcement authorities or other third parties. This may be the case, for example, for official and court decisions or for legal and criminal prosecution. 

 

How is my data protected? 

We want you to feel and be safe on our website. Therefore, we take various measures to meet both the legal requirements and our own very high standards of data protection and data security.  

 Vigilante takes the protection of your PII seriously. All data is handled and processed in accordance with the TPA and GDPR, which ensures the highest standards of data protection.  

 Our data processing is subject to the principle that we only process the PII that is necessary for the sensible and economic use of our offer. In doing so, we take great care to ensure that your privacy and the confidentiality of all PII are always guaranteed. 

 All transmitted data is protected by TLS encryption. Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a protocol used to ensure secure data transmission on the Internet. The public-private key procedure is used here. This means that data encrypted with a publicly accessible key can only be decrypted again with a separate private key. 

 We stand for high security when shopping online. Vigilante uses technical and organizational security measures (TOMs) throughout the company to protect the data we manage from you against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against access by unauthorized persons. For example, we regularly train all employees on current IT security topics. 

 Nonetheless, please note that databases or data sets that include PII may be breached inadvertently or through wrongful intrusion. Upon becoming aware of a data breach, we will notify all affected individuals whose PII may have been compromised, and the notice will be accompanied by a description of the action being taken to reconcile any damage as a result of the data breach. Notices will be provided as expeditiously as possible after which the breach was discovered. 

 

Duration of data storage 

We store PII on our secure server and only for as long as it is necessary for the purposes for which it is processed or for as long as any consent you have given us has been revoked by you. Insofar as statutory retention obligations must be observed, the storage period for certain data may be up to 6 years, irrespective of the processing purposes. 

 

Marketing 

Insofar as you have also given us your separate consent to process your data for marketing and advertising purposes, we are entitled to contact you for these purposes via the communication channels you have given your consent to. 

 You may give us your consent in a number of ways including by selecting a box on a form where we seek your permission to send you marketing information, or sometimes your consent is implied from your interactions or contractual relationship with us. Where your consent is implied, it is on the basis that you would have a reasonable expectation of receiving a marketing communication based on your interactions or contractual relationship with us. 

 Direct Marketing generally takes the form of e-mail but may also include other less traditional or emerging channels. These forms of contact will be managed by us, or by our contracted service providers. Every directly addressed marketing sent or made by us or on our behalf will include a means by which you may unsubscribe or opt out.  

 

Social Media 

We are present on LinkedIn, Twitter on the basis of our legitimate interest. If you contact us via those social media platforms, you should note that the chat history can neither be deleted by us nor by you. And that, in accordance with the TPA and the GDPR, the relevant social media platform and we are jointly responsible for the processing of your data and enter into a so-called joint controller agreement. A Joint Controller Agreement itself if very legalistic and lengthy, but in a nutshell, it clarifies how the jointly responsible parties will fulfil the obligations arising from data protection laws that are applicable to them.  

 Further, your use of the relevant social media platform and its functions is your own responsibility, this applies in particular to the use of the interactive functions (e.g., commenting, sharing, rating). In addition, the relevant social media platform may use your data for market research, advertising purposes and to create profiles about your usage behavior and your interests. This allows, for example, advertisements to be placed within and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to your interests. we, as the provider of this policy, do not collect and process any data from your use of the relevant social media platform beyond the point of responding to your requests and if so intended, entering into a contract with you. For further information about the relevant social media platforms use of your PII, please refer to the above linked Privacy Policies. 

 The legal basis for the use of the relevant social media platform is our legitimate interest, your consent or, in the case of a (pre) contractual relationship with us, the initiation of a contractual service.
