UnitedAds processes the collected and stored personal data exclusively for the purposes stated in this declaration. UnitedAds does not sell or lease any data for purposes of revenue generation. Disclosure to third parties or publication of data is only possible with the prior written consent of the person concerned. The data is either processed by UnitedAds itself or by selected processors. The data is always kept secret.
UnitedAds uses links to various social media services on its websites (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Xing, Youtube, Instagram) and other websites. By clicking on these links you will be forwarded directly to the social media service or website.
The collection and processing of personal data on the respective websites of third parties is the sole responsibility of the respective service provider. UnitedAds has no influence on this and is therefore not responsible for the data processing.
Collection and use of data
UnitedAds collects, stores and processes personal data for different purposes. This data will be deleted after the elimination of the respective legal basis, provided that no statutory provisions or legitimate interests contradict.
The websites of UnitedAds identify and collect access data from website visitors and save it in log files. Among other things, the following data is recorded: name of the website, date and time of the call, amount of data transferred, notification of successful retrieval, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (previously visited site), IP address and the requesting provider.
UnitedAds has a legitimate interest in knowing the users of its own websites in order to optimize the services offered and to further increase the user-friendliness. Therefore, UnitedAds collects this data for the purpose of statistical evaluation and constant optimization of the websites.
Furthermore, UnitedAds provides different contact forms on its websites to process inquiries of interested parties (for example about a product demo). Personal data (e.g. name, email address, telephone number) are also requested. This data is stored by UnitedAds in secure CRM systems in order to be able to answer the inquiries correctly and to have an overview of the requestors and those interested in follow-up inquiries or contacting.
With our newsletter we keep our customers and prospect up-to-date and inform them about new offers, services, and events. The newsletter serves to keep in constant communication with our customers, partners and interested parties.
In order to receive this service, we require the consent of the persons concerned. In doing so, general contact details (name and email address) are requested and stored for the purpose of sending the newsletter until further notice. The data will be used exclusively for this purpose and will not be passed on to third parties.
Furthermore, UnitedAds stores the IP address as well as the time stamp of the newsletter registration in order to check or, if necessary, to prove whether a third party has unauthorizedly used an email address without the knowledge and consent of the authorized person.
Newsletter recipients have the right to revoke the newsletter service at any time, simply by using the unsubscribe link provided in the newsletter or by sending a request to the contact details below. After that, no more newsletters will be sent to the specified email address and the stored data will be deleted immediately.
Cookies are small text files that a website stores on the respective device (PC, notebook, smartphone, tablet) of the visitor when visiting the website. These cookies contain information about the user himself (for example IP address and information about the hardware and software used) as well as the website visited.
As an alternative to the default browser settings, you can opt out of non-essential cookies, such as those used for traffic analysis, by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie will be set on your device, which prevents further data collection.
UnitedAds uses the analytics service Google Analytics provided by Google. In doing so, Google accesses the cookies of the user and uses them to analyze the use of the website. The data of the cookies is also regularly transmitted to the US and stored on Google’s own servers. This website has enabled the anonymization of IP addresses feature, which truncates the IP address before submitting it. Google uses this information for the detailed evaluation of the use of this website.
To ensure the required level of protection, Google is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. In addition, UnitedAds has entered into suitable agreements with Google to ensure a corresponding level of data protection. UnitedAds does no user profiling and therefore the IP address stored by means of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google products or services.
To prevent Google from collecting and processing the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website, you can simply download and install a browser add-on at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
Data transfer and submission
UntedAds has a great interest in protecting all data (in particular personal data) against unauthorized access and processing it in a manner that complies with the statutory provisions. In addition to its own infrastructure and systems, UnitedAds also uses various software providers and tools (such as Google, Stripe, PayPal), which enable secure and collaborative processing of data.
It may also be the case that data is stored or processed outside the territory of the European Union, in particular in the United States, whereby UnitedAds ensures that appropriate safeguards are in place for all third-party providers, which guarantee the necessary level of data protection. Most large and international software vendors (such as Google and others) are certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. Compliance with the requirements of the EU-US Privacy Shield complies with the level of data protection of the European Union, which allows data transmission to these companies.
With all processors without self-certification, UnitedAds has concluded corresponding agreements on data processing in accordance with Art. 28 (3) GDPR.
Data processing agreement
Data processing agreements have to be made, if personal data is processed by a third party (processor) on behalf of the controller. By doing so, the processor guarantees to comply with the applicable data protection rules. The processor may process personal data only in the context, scope and purpose specified in the agreement. In these cases, UnitedAds will be further responsible for the processing activities and the protection of the rights of the data subjects.
UnitedAds has entered into an agreement with all processors and therefore works exclusively with those processors and partners who provide reasonable guarantees that appropriate technical and organizational measures are taken to ensure that the processing complies with data protection requirements, so the required level of protection is being guaranteed.
Data protection measures
In order to protect personal data sufficiently, UnitedAds has taken appropriate technical and organizational measures. These measures ensure that personal data is not used, processed, copied, modified, deleted or published or used without authorization.
Different measures have been taken, such as the definition of a company-wide and cross-sectoral rights and deletion concept, control and monitoring of access to the data, extensive backup and restore options. Additional security is provided by comprehensive anti-virus programs and firewalls. These measures will ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of systems and data. In addition, organizational measures such as training and extended confidentiality arrangements for UnitedAds staff, the dual control approach and newly-developed processes to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk were taken.

Such requests have to be sent to the contact details below and will be processed and answered by UnitedAds immediately, but no later than after 30 days.
