3. Data processing for the demand-oriented design of the website

To make the use of our website as pleasant as possible for you, we use so-called web tracking systems.

Other cookies remain on your end device and enable us to recognize your end device at your next visit.

Most browsers are set in such a way that cookies are automatically accepted. You can deactivate the storage of cookies in your browser and have the option of deleting them from your hard drive at any time. However, you can also use your browser to prevent the setting of certain cookies only (e.g. cookies from third parties), for example if you wish to prevent web tracking.

Finally, please note that if you disable cookies, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to their full extent.

The legal basis for the processing of your data is, unless otherwise stated in the following provisions in section 3.1 ff., Article 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the design of the website to meet the needs of our customers.

3.1. Cookie consent with “GDPR Cookie Compliance” plugin for WordPress

In order to be able to administer your consent to the use of tracking tools, we use the cookie consent tool “ GDPR Cookie Compliance” from the provider Move Agency. In this context, in addition to the connection data, the granting or refusal of your consent or the revocation of a consent is processed. In order to be able to make the corresponding allocation, the cookie consent tool also sets a cookie in your browser.

4. Social media presence

4.1. Links to social networks

Our website contains links to social networks (Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn). These websites are operated exclusively by third parties. If you follow the links, the respective provider may process personal data about you. Please note the data protection information of the provider in this regard.

4.2. Data processing by Fjäll Connections and legal basis

Our social media sites (Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn) serve the purpose of informing you about Fjäll Connections and new developments, services and products from us. Depending on the offer of the respective providers, you have the possibility of different interaction (comments, recommendations etc.) e.g. in connection with our social media presence. The interaction of the users is an important criterion for us in order to carry out targeted marketing. For example, we can determine which articles are read preferentially. We therefore also use the statistics determined by the providers in this regard for our own purposes. Insofar as we process personal data of users in this context, the legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest then consists in particular in targeted information / advertising. The providers will inform you separately about the legal basis on which they process your data for their own purposes.

4.3. Joint controllers

In some cases, we are jointly responsible (joint controllers) with the social media providers for processing your personal data. In this case you can assert your rights (see section 9) generally either against us or against the social media provider. However, the social media provider is the first point of contact.

We have entered into a joint controller agreement with Facebook Inc, 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA (Facebook) regarding the processing of personal data. This agreement applies with regard to the processing of so-called “insights data”. These are page statistics, especially regarding the interactions of Facebook users. Details of the insights data can be found here: Our agreement with Facebook can be viewed at the following link:

With regard to the storage period of the data processed by us for our own purposes, we refer you to our explanations under section 7. In addition, please note the data protection regulations of the respective social media provider.


5. Data transfer

We will only transfer your personal data to third parties or other recipients if this is necessary for the provision of services, if you have given your consent, if there is a legal obligation to do so or if the transfer of data is permitted on another legal basis. For example, data is passed on to technical service providers or – in the case of a company transaction – to interested parties/buyers etc.


6. Data transfer to countries outside the EU

As far as necessary for our purposes, we will also transfer your data to recipients outside the EU if you have given your consent, if there is a legal obligation or if the transfer of data is permitted on another legal basis. Your data will also be transferred to recipients based in the USA within the scope of data processing. An adequate level of data protection is generally ensured by the conclusion of the so-called EU standard contract clauses. Please note, however, that according to a recent ruling of the European Court of Justice (ECJ), there is no adequate level of data protection in the USA and thus a risk to the protection of your data. For example, under certain circumstances your data may be processed by US authorities for control and monitoring purposes. In addition, we refer to Art. 49 GDPR with regard to the legal basis for the transfer of data.


7. Duration for which personal data are stored / criteria for determining the duration

Your personal data will be stored by us for as long as it is necessary for the aforementioned purposes of processing, in the event of an objection no compelling reasons worthy of protection oppose Fjäll Connections or in the event of a revocation no other legal basis for data processing exists. In certain cases, e.g. if there is a legal obligation to retain data, your personal data will not be deleted immediately, but blocked initially. Thus, the retention period for messages via the contact form with a business content can be ten years.


8. Security measures to protect your personal data

We protect your data against unauthorized access, loss or destruction by technical and organizational measures. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments. Our employees and all persons involved in data processing are obliged to comply with data protection laws and to handle personal data confidentially. Our colleagues are trained accordingly.

To protect your personal data on this website, we use a secure online transmission procedure, the so-called “Secure Socket Layer” (SSL) transmission. You can recognize this by the fact that a closed padlock symbol is displayed on the address https://. By clicking on the symbol, you will receive information about the SSL certificate used. The display of the symbol depends on the browser version you are using. The SSL encryption guarantees the encrypted and complete transmission of your data.

– confirmation as to whether personal data concerning you is processed by Fjäll Connections,
