The controller within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation and other national data protection legislation of the member states as well as other data protection provisions is:
We only process the personal data of our users if this is necessary to provide a functional website as well as our content and services. The personal data of our users are processed regularly only once the user has given consent. An exception applies in cases in which it is not possible to obtain consent in advance for practical reasons and data processing is permitted by law.
We generally only collect personal information about users of our website in connection with enquiries about our services, e.g. via the ‘Contact’ page or the ‘Online check’. As an Autoadmits customer, you also receive login details for our website to access your personal Autoadmits dashboard and user account. We will store your personal information in the user account, and only use this to provide contractually agreed services and to organise and manage our contractual relationship. In addition to the data above, this information may include the following: your private/business address; your private/business landline or mobile number; your password and the username you select; your payment information; your date of birth; All other information that you provide e.g. for publishing in search engines, online directory media and social networks; information about the services you purchase from Autoadmits. If you send us an email relating to an enquiry about a job offer on our ‘Career’ page, we can store your personal information relating to such an enquiry, including: Information about your education; Your professional experience; Your career; Your professional preferences.
If you contact us (e.g. using the contact form or by e-mail), we store your information to process the enquiry as well as in case any follow-up questions arise. We only store other personal data if you consent to this or this is permitted by law without explicit consent.
The applicant’s data will only be stored and used for longer than six months and passed on to other third party providers with the express consent of the applicant. This consent may be withdrawn at any time.
In the context of using the services offered by us as "AutoadmitsAds", "Local Ads" and "Near Me Ads", we use the customer data already provided by the customer as well as credit card data additionally provided by the customer.
The legal basis for obtaining the consent of the data subject to process personal data is point (a) of Art. 6 (1) EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The legal basis for processing personal data required to fulfil a contract, with the data subject being one of the contracting parties, is point (b) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR. This also applies to processing operations that are required to perform pre-contractual measures.
The legal basis for processing personal data required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject is point (c) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR. The legal basis for vital interests of the data subject or another natural person making the processing of personal data necessary is point (d) Art. 6 (1) GDPR. The legal basis for data processing being required to maintain a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and this not being outweighed by the interests, basic rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject is point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR.
The personal data of the data subject will be erased or blocked once the purpose of storage no longer applies. The data may be stored for longer if this is stipulated by European or national legislators in European regulations, laws and other provisions to which the controller is subject. The data are blocked or erased once a retention period prescribed by the stated regulations expires unless it is necessary to continue storing the data to enter into or fulfil a contract.
Every time our website is accessed, our system automatically records data and information from the accessing computer system. When accessing our website https://www.autoadmits.com, information is automatically sent to the server of our website by the browser used on your mobile device. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information will be recorded without any action on your part and stored until it is automatically erased:
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and the log files is point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR.
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to transmit the website to the user’s computer. The IP address of the user must stored for the duration of the session. These purposes are in line with our legitimate interest in data processing according to point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR.
The data will be erased once they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. This is the case when each session ends if data are collected to provide the website.
It is necessary to collect data to provide the website and to store data in log files to operate the website. The user cannot object to this.
The legal basis for processing personal data using cookies is point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR.
You can configure the settings in your browser to block either specific cookies or all cookies. However, if you set your browser to block all cookies (including essential cookies), you might not be able to access our website or parts thereof.
We use the open source software tool Matomo (formally PIWIK) on our website to analyse the surfing habits of our users. The software places a cookie on the user’s computer (see above for information on cookies). If individual pages of our website are accessed, the following data are stored:
The software runs exclusively on the servers of our website. The user’s personal data are only stored there. The data are not passed on to third parties.
You can object to the storage of a user profile and information concerning your visit to our website by Hotjar, as well as to the use of Hotjar tracking cookies on other websites, by clicking on this link: https://www.hotjar.com/legal/compliance/opt-out.
We use the Pardot Marketing Automation System (Pardot MAS), specialised software which records and evaluates how visitors use a website and also sends newsletters.
When you visit this website, the Pardot MAS records your click path and uses it to generate an individual usage profile under a pseudonym. Cookies that can recognise your browser if you visit the website again are used for this purpose. You can deactivate the generation of pseudonymised usage profiles at any time by setting your Internet browser to block cookies from the domain pardot.com. However, this might restrict certain features and the user-friendliness of our website.
WWe use Google Ads Conversion to draw attention to our attractive products and services on third-party websites using adverts (known as Google Ads). We can determine how successful the individual advertising activities are in relation to the data from advertising campaigns. We want to show you advertising that interests you, to make our website more interesting for you and to enable the fair calculation of advertising costs. These adverts are supplied by Google using ad servers. They entail the use of ad server cookies, which measure certain parameters such as the number of times the adverts are displayed and clicked on by users. When you come to our website via a Google advert, Google Ads stores a cookie on your end device. These cookies generally expire after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. The metrics stored with this cookie are generally the unique cookie ID, the frequency of ad impressions, the last impression (relevant for post-view conversations) and opt-out information. These cookies enable Google to recognise your browser again. If a user visits certain pages on the website of an Ads customer and the cookie stored on their computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can see that the user has clicked on the advert and was redirected to this page. A different cookie is assigned to each Ads customer. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across the websites of Ads customers. We do not collect or process any personal data in the advertising activities mentioned. We only receive statistical analyses from Google. We can use these analyses to identify which of our advertising activities are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of advertising material; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information. Your browser uses the marketing tools that we deploy to establish a direct connection to the Google servers. We have no control over the scope and further use of the data that Google collects by means of this tool and so can only inform you to the best of our knowledge: through the use of Ads Conversion, Google is informed that you have accessed the corresponding section of our website or have clicked on one of our adverts. Insofar as you are registered with a Google service, Google can attribute the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible for the provider to find out and store your IP address.
WWe also use Google Ads Remarketing. With Remarketing, we can show interest-based adverts to users of our website on other websites within the Google advertising network (in a Google search or on YouTube, Google Ads or on other websites). The ways users interact with our website are therefore analysed, e.g. what users are interested in, in order to show interest-based adverts to users even after they have visited our website. For this purpose, Google stores a code on the browsers of users who visit certain Google services or websites in the Google Display Network. Known as a cookie, this code logs what websites these users visit. The code makes it possible to identify a browser on a certain end device, not to identify an individual; no personal data is stored.
You can opt out of this tracking procedure in various ways:
See here for more information on data protection at Google: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=us and https://services.google.com/sitestats/en.html.
Alternatively, you can visit the website of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) at http://www.networkadvertising.org.
Google complies with the EU–US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework .
We use the cookie ‘misc/ing’ from the website mathtag.com. This cookie collects data concerning the behaviour and interactions of visitors. We use this cookie to optimise our website and increase the relevance of adverts on the website. You can deactivate this cookie at any time by setting your Internet browser to block cookies from the domain mathtag.com. However, this might restrict certain features and the user-friendliness of our website.
The legal basis for processing the user’s personal data is point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR.
The processing of the user’s personal data allows us to analyse the surfing behaviour of our users. By analysing the data we obtain, we can compile information about the use of individual components of our website. This helps us to constantly improve our website and its user friendliness. These purposes are in line with our legitimate interest in data processing according to point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR. Anonymising the IP address adequately takes the user’s interest in protecting their personal data into account.
The data is erased once they are no longer required for our recording purposes.
On our website, we give you the option of using so-called ‘social plugins’ of the companies:
The plug-ins on the website are only shown as a graphic that contains a link to the corresponding website of the plug-in provider. Clicking on the graphic forwards you to the services of the provider. Only then will your data be sent to the respective service provider. If you do not click on the graphics, no data will be exchanged between you and the social networks above.
We also use the tracking pixel provided by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (Facebook). The pixel can be used to track the actions of users after they have been redirected to our website by clicking on a Facebook advert. This enables us to gauge the effectiveness of Facebook adverts for the purposes of statistics and market research. The data collected in this way is anonymous to us, i.e. we cannot see the personal data of individual users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook, and we will provide you with the information we have in this regard.
You can object to receiving adverts from Facebook and its partners. Click on the following link to change the settings for Facebook adverts: https://www.facebook.com/ads/website_custom_audiences/.

a) Erasure obligation
You shall have the right to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning you without undue delay and the controller shall have the obli- gation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies:
b) Information to third partiesWhere the controller has made the personal data public and is obliged pursuant to Art. 17 (1) GDPR to erase the personal data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform controllers which are processing the personal data that you as the data subject have requested the erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data.
The right to erasure shall not apply to the extent that processing is necessary:
If you have exercised your right to rectification, erasure or limitation of processing against the controller, the controller shall communicate any rectification or erasure of personal data or restriction of processing carried out to each recipient to whom the personal data have been disclosed, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort. The controller shall inform you about those recipients if you request it.
You shall have the right to receive your personal data, which you have provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, where:
In exercising this right to data portability, you shall have the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible.

Where personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes, you shall have the right to object at any time to processing of your personal data for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. Where you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, your personal data shall no longer be processed for such purposes. In the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you may exercise your right to object by automated means using technical specifications.
You shall have the right to withdraw you consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
You shall have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This shall not apply if the decision:
These decisions shall not be based on special categories of personal data referred to in Art. 9 (1) GDPR, unless point (a) or (g) of Art. 9 (2) GDPR applies and suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests are in place. In the cases referred to in points (1) and (3), the data controller shall implement suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you shall have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement if you consider that the processing of your personal data infringes the GDPR. The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant on the progress and the outcome of the complaint including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Art. 78 GDPR.
