C. General information on data processing

I. Scope of processing of personal data

We only process personal data of our users if this is necessary to provide a functioning website  or to establish contact between the user and us via this website. The processing of personal data of our users usually only takes place with the user's consent. An exception applies in those cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and/or the processing of the data is permitted by provisions of statutory law.

II. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

To the extent we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 lit. a GDPR serves as a legal basis.
If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as a legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.
To the extent the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as a legal basis.
In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para.1 subpara. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as a legal basis.
If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first interest, Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as a legal basis.

III. Data erasure and storage time

The personal data of the data subject will be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for in EU or Member State regulations, laws or other provisions to which the data controller is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed in one of the aforementioned provisions expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

D. Data processing in detail

I. Provision of the website and creation of log files

1. Description and scope of data processing
Every time you visit our website (this basically refers to ihaus.com, ihaus.de, magazin.ihaus.com and support.ihaus.de), our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.
 
The following data is collected:
(1) Information about the browser type and version used
(2) The user's operating system and user interface
(3) Language and version of the browser software
(4) The user's internet service provider
(5) The IP address of the user
(6) Date and time of access
(7) Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
(8) Content of the request (specific page)
(9) Access Status/HTTP Status Code
(10) The amount of data transferred in each case
(11) Websites from which the user's system reaches our website
(12) Websites accessed by the user's system through our website
The data is also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user, unless the user is a registered user of our web shop (see Section VI.) or a user with an iHaus app account (see Section VII.).

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 lit. f GDPR.

3. Purpose of data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be made available to the user's computer. To that effect the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.
The data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data serves us to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.
Our legitimate interest in data processing therefore results from Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 lit. f GDPR.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.
If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Further storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an identification of the calling client is no longer possible.

5. Possibility of objection and removal

The collection of the data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

II. Use of cookies

1. Description and scope of data processing
Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in the internet browser or by the Internet browser on the user's computer system.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for analysis purposes is Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 lit. a GDPR.

3. Purpose of data processing

The purpose of using technically necessary cookies is to simplify the use of websites for users. Some functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. For this it is necessary that the browser is recognized even after a page change.

We need cookies for the following applications:
(1) Shopping cart
(2) Remembering language settings
(3) Remembering search terms

The user data collected by technically necessary cookies are not used to create user profiles.
The analysis cookies are used to improve the quality of our website and its content. Through the analysis cookies we learn how the website is used and can thus continuously optimize our offer.

4. Duration of storage / possibility of objection and removal

Cookies are stored on the user's computer and transmitted to our site. Therefore, users also have full control over the use of cookies. By changing the settings in his internet browser, the user can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies. Cookies that have already been saved can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may no longer be possible to use all functions of the website in full.

5. Possibility of objection and removal

The subscription to the newsletter can be cancelled by the user at any time. For this purpose, there is a corresponding link in every newsletter.
By doing so, it is also possible to revoke the consent to the storage of personal data collected during the technical registration process.

IV. Contact buttons/forms and email contact / telephone contact

1. Description and scope of data processing

On our website there are contact buttons (with "Mail-To"-function), which can be used by the user for the electronic contact to us by email. By pressing the contact button, the draft of an email is opened within the user's standard email client, in the address field of which the email address provided by us for the purpose of establishing contact is already entered.

When a contact button is pressed, the following data is collected:
(1) IP address of the calling computer
(2) Date and time of the call

In the event that the user subsequently sends an email to us, the user's personal data transmitted with the email will be stored.

Alternatively, it is also possible to contact us via one of the contact forms provided on our website, e.g. for the purpose of communicating about a possible cooperation as an iHaus Business Partner. In this case, the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us and stored.

This data is:
(1) First name
(2) Family name

For the processing of the data, the user's consent is obtained and reference is made to this privacy statement within the sending process.
In all the cases mentioned above, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data is used exclusively for processing the conversation.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

The legal basis for the processing of data is Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 lit. a GDPR to the extent the user has provided his or her consent.
The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an email or made known to us by telephone is Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 lit. f GDPR.
If the contact is aimed at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 lit. b GDPR.

3. Purpose of data processing

The processing of the personal data transmitted by the user serves us solely to process the establishment of a contact. This also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in the processing of the data.
The other personal data processed during the sending process serves to prevent misuse of the contact button/form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. This is the case for the personal data entered into the input mask of the contact form and the data transmitted by email or telephone, when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is terminated when it can be assumed according to the circumstances that the issues in question have been finally clarified.
The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.

5. Possibility of objection and removal

The user has the possibility to revoke his consent to the processing of personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued.
The user can revoke his consent and object to the storage of personal data at any time by sending an email to privacy@ihaus.com or by writing to our address (iHaus AG, Siedlerstr. 2, 85774 Unterföhring, Germany).
All personal data stored in the course of contacting us will be deleted in this case.
The foregoing does not apply on an exceptional basis if there is a concrete suspicion that the user in question might have acted illegally in the context of making contact (e.g. in the case of offensive or other statements that violate personal rights) and a continued storage of the data concerned is at least directly permitted by Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 lit. f GDPR.

V. Purchase of goods or services via the iHaus web shop

1. Description and scope of data processing

Our website contains a web shop through which users can carry out e-commerce transactions, i.e. obtain goods and services offered by us (in particular installation services for smart home devices).

  • In addition, we reserve the right – to the extent we allow for payment after delivery – to obtain credit information about the user on the basis of mathematical-statistical procedures from SCHUFA Holding AG, Kormoranweg 5, 65201 Wiesbaden, and for this purpose to pass on the user's data transmitted during registration to this business information agency in order to safeguard our legitimate interests. In this case we transmit the user's data collected during the registration process to SCHUFA Holding AG and use the information received about the statistical probability of non-payment for a balanced decision on the establishment, implementation or termination of the contractual relationship. The credit information can contain probability values (score values), which are calculated on the basis of scientifically recognized, mathematical-statistical procedures and in the calculation of which address data, among other things, are included.

Furthermore, we use the data transmitted by the user during the registration process to provide users who have already purchased goods or services from us with advertising information about other goods or services sold by us within the framework of advertising to existing customers - to the extent otherwise permitted by law.

These also constitute the necessary legitimate interests in the processing of the data.
The passing on of personal data to SCHUFA Holding AG and the obtaining of credit information is also carried out in order to minimize credit risks within the framework of the conclusion and implementation of the contractual relationship.
The other personal data processed during the technical sending process serve to prevent misuse of our web shop functionality and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. As already mentioned, we will continue to store the data collected beyond the actual processing of the eCommerce transaction for the purpose of providing advertising to existing customers. Data from users who have not purchased goods or services from us over a period of several years will be deleted by us unless an obligation to continue to store the data exists anyway due to contractual or statutory law obligations.
The additional personal data collected during the technical sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. This is the case for the data collected during the registration process if the registration for the web shop on our website is cancelled or changed.

If the data is required to fulfil a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures, early deletion of the data is only possible to the extent there are no contractual or statutory law obligations to the contrary.

VIII. Use of the iHaus app and the corresponding app account

1. Description and scope of data processing

a) Activity log

As long as the user is registered in his iHaus app account and/or visits as registered user our website, the iHaus server automatically collects data about how the iHaus app and iHaus website are used by the user in addition to the data mentioned in Section I. 1. in a so-called activity log. The following data is recorded:

(1) Functionalities used
(2) Number of registrations
(3) Cookie ID
(4) Amount of data transferred

b) Connecting the iHaus app with smart home systems

Further personal data of the registered user will only be collected by us if and to the extent that the user connects the iHaus services with certain smart home systems (SHS) of his choice. The user solely decides which SHS (devices or services) supported by the iHaus app he connects to the iHaus services. These can be, for example, cameras, smoke detectors, systems for controlling heating or roller shutters, lighting systems, consumer electronic devices or other services, such as traffic or weather information. The user selects the relevant SHS within the user interface of the iHaus app. The user alone is responsible for the lawful operation and configuration of these devices and services (see in particular sections 3.1 and 3.4 of our applicable general terms and conditions).
Depending on the functional scope of the SHS and the configuration selected by the user and possibly also determined by the user through the use of other applications, we therefore only collect the data that is collected and transmitted by the relevant SHS.

This can include the following data in particular:
(1) Still images of a camera installed by the user in or on the building
(2) Contact details (e.g. email addresses or telephone numbers) for alarm calls
(3) Time information regarding the time of commissioning and decommissioning (e.g. activation or deactivation of alarm systems)
(4) Configurations and other device information
(5) Switching states
(6) Brightness or color values
(7) Level of noise
(8) Consumption data

The respective SHS is integrated into the user's home network via TCP/IP (Ethernet or Wi-Fi). The SHS in the home network are then addressed either directly, via third-party gateways or via a building bus system. The user profile, configuration and switching states of the user's home are synchronized with the iHaus cloud servers. Communication is conducted exclusively via SHA256-encrypted SSL/TLS connections and the connection can only be established from the user's home to the iHaus cloud, but not from the Internet to the user's home. To enable control from other TCP/IP networks (e.g. 3G / LTE), the user's smartphone or tablet is synchronized with the iHaus cloud via encrypted connections.
The data collected in this way is stored on a primary iHaus server and assigned to the app account of the user concerned.
The user can manage this data in his user account and delete it individually if necessary (e.g. camera still images no longer required). The user can also terminate the connection of individual devices or services with the iHaus services as a whole; the relevant data stored for an individual SHS will then be deleted by us without delay.

c) Pseudonymized user profiles

The so collected data is also encrypted by us and stored on another separate iHaus server without any personal reference, i.e. in a pseudonymized  manner. For purposes of non-personalized advertising, market research and demand-oriented design of the offer, we create user profiles on the basis of this data using pseudonyms. This data is not combined with other personal data, unless this would be indispensable for the provision of certain extended functionalities and services of the iHaus apps selected by the user (see below). This data will not be passed on to third parties.
The integration of certain SHS by the user enables the user to possibly use extended functionalities and services of the iHaus apps, e.g. automated proposal functions for energy optimization or comfort functions for other optimized use of the relevant SHS. If and as long as the user integrates such SHS and activates the relevant extended functionalities and services of the iHaus apps, their provision may also require that we access the user's device, consumption and usage data stored on a pseudonymized basis to the respective SHS for a limited purpose, analyze them and to this extent create a specific SHS usage profile. This data will not be passed on to third parties.
In this case, the user will be informed separately and his consent to the processing of the relevant personal data will be obtained. In this context, this privacy statement will also be referred to.

d) Individualization of usage profiles

Logged-in users who are also interested in a further analysis of the device, consumption and usage data stored by us in a pseudonymized manner in accordance with lit. c) above in order to receive appropriate usage recommendations based on an individualized usage profile and corresponding individualized advertising for products and services from our portfolio or such products and services that we sell via our web shop can register for this via dialogue fields provided within the iHaus apps.
  
This registration is voluntary. The user can revoke his consent to the extended data analysis by iHaus, the creation of an individualized user profile and the transmission of individualized advertising by us at any time.
The user can declare the revocation at any time by pressing a button provided for this purpose in the settings of the iHaus apps, by email to support@ihaus.de or by sending a message to the contact data stated in the imprint. The data provided will not be passed on to third parties. All data will be completely deleted upon revocation.

The consent given by the user has the following wording:

I would like to receive advertising about products and services of iHaus or such products and services that iHaus sells through the iHaus Store, as well as individualized usage recommendations for Smart Home systems, each based on an individual analysis of the device, consumption and usage data of the Smart Home systems I have connected to the iHaus app.
For this purpose, I hereby consent to iHaus analyzing these device, consumption and usage data individually and creating an individualized usage profile for my Smart Home systems. This consent may be revoked by me at any time.

I would like to be informed about individualized advertising and usage recommendations on the following channels using the contact data stored by me in my user account:
[Checkbox] Email
[Checkbox] Post
[Checkbox] Phone
[Checkbox] Telefax message
[Register here]

All information is voluntary. Consent to the additional data analysis described above by iHaus, the creation of an individualized usage profile and the transmission of individualized advertising and usage recommendations by iHaus is revocable at any time by pressing a button provided for this purpose in the settings of the iHaus apps or by email to support@ihaus.de or to the contact data specified in the imprint. The revocation takes place according to the privacy statement [Link] of iHaus.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

The legal basis for the processing of data collected within the framework of the activity log is Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 lit. b and f GDPR.
The legal basis for the processing of data collected by SHS and stored on the primary iHaus server is Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 lit. b GDPR.
The legal basis for the creation and use of pseudonymized user profiles is Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 lit. b and f GDPR, to the extent the user gives his consent, Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 lit. a GDPR.
The legal basis for the creation and use of individualized usage profiles is Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 lit. a GDPR.

3. Purpose of data processing

The data collected within the scope of the activity log is used by us to provide the iHaus services, to create anonymous statistics and to check compliance with the contractual provisions (in particular the contractual use and the prohibition of the use of iHaus services by robots).
Data is collected and stored on the primary iHaus server in order to maintain the functionality and correct operation of the respective SHS, to ensure the functionalities and services of the iHaus apps and to create backup copies of the SHS configuration.
The creation and use of pseudonymized usage profiles is for the purposes of non-personalized advertising, market research and demand-oriented design of the offer, in order to enable the customer to use appropriate usage recommendations and corresponding individualized advertising for current goods and services from our portfolio.
Creation and use of individualized usage profiles is conducted to enable the customer to use appropriate usage recommendations and corresponding individualized advertising for current goods and services from our portfolio.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. This is the case at the latest when the customer deletes his app account (see Section VII. 5.), unless an obligation to continue to store individual data exists anyway due to contractual or statutory law obligations.

5. Possibility of objection and removal

The user can manage the data in his user account and delete it individually if necessary (e.g. camera stills no longer required). The user can also terminate the connection of individual devices or services with the iHaus services as a whole; the relevant data stored for a single SHS and any user profiles created will be deleted by us within seven days.
The user can object to the use of the data at any time by pressing a button provided for this purpose in the settings of the iHaus apps or by contacting support@ihaus.de or the address given in the imprint for this purpose.

IX. Disclosure of personal data to third parties: Hosting provider

1. Description and scope of data processing

Our website (including the central functions of the iHaus app) is hosted on the server of a hosting provider (currently: QSC AG) in the Federal Republic of Germany. The personal data processed by us and described in detail in sections I. to VIII. above is stored on this server. All our systems are encrypted according to the state of the art. Therefore, access to personal data by the hosting provider should normally hardly be possible.

X. Disclosure of personal data to third parties: active Java script content from Facebook, Google+ and Twitter

1. Description and scope of data processing

Active JavaScript content from external social media providers is used on our website. When accessing our website, these external providers may receive personal information about the user's visit (IP address of the user, time of access) to our website. The user can prevent this by installing a Java script blocker such as the browser plug-in "NoScript" (www.noscript.net) or by deactivating Java script in his browser. However, this may result in functional restrictions for the user within the scope of using our website. In detail, these are the following providers:

(a) Facebook
Java script code of the social network Facebook Inc. 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA, is downloaded from our website. If the user has activated Java-Script in his browser and has not installed a Java-Script-Blocker, his browser may transmit personal data to Facebook. We do not know what data Facebook links to the data received and for what purposes Facebook uses this data. For more information, please see Facebook's Privacy Policy. If the user does not want Facebook to be able to associate the visit to our website with his Facebook account, he can log out of his Facebook account to prevent this and deactivate the execution of Java Script in his browser.

Our website also uses the remarketing function "Custom Audiences" of Facebook Inc. This function is used to present interest-based ads ("Facebook Ads") to users of our website when they visit the social network Facebook. For this purpose, the Facebook remarketing tag has been implemented on our website. This day establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers when you visit our website.

A user’s +1s can be displayed together with his profile name and the image in Google services such as search results or in the user’s Google profile or in other places on websites and advertisements on the internet.
Google registers information on +1 activities.
A globally visible Google profile, which has to include at least the name chosen for the profile, is necessary in order to be able to use the +1 button. This name is used in all of Google’s services. In some cases this name can also replace another name which was used while sharing content via the Google account. The identity of the Google profile can be shown to third parties who know the user’s email address or have other identifying information on the user.
Details on Google’s approach to privacy as well as rights and settings for the protection of personal data can be found in the privacy policy of Google+ and the Google +1 button.
