(1) provide our products and services, including this website, and improve them over time,
(2) deliver the content of our website correctly,
(3) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertising,
(4) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology,

The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

19. LEGAL BASIS FOR THE PROCESS OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Our legal bases for process under EEA Data Protection Law are described above. We may process your personal information if you consent to the processing, to satisfy our legal obligations, if it is necessary to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts we entered with you, or to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract with you, or for our legitimate interests to protect our property, rights or safety of Company our customers or others.
As it already has been described, GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. Process of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for processing operations of supply of goods or to provide any other service. The same applies to such operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, or any inquiries concerning our products or services.
The processing operations` legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the above-mentioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by Ivory or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller.
The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.
21. SOCIAL MEDIA
Registration on the Website
Users have the possibility to register on the Ivory’s website using personal data. Which personal data are transmitted to the controller is determined by the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller, and for his own purposes. The controller may request transfer to one or more processors that also use personal data for an internal purpose which is attributable to the controller. By registering on the website, the IP address, date, and time of the registration are also stored. The storage of this data is necessary to secure Ivory as controller. This data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a statutory obligation to pass on the data, or if the transfer serves the aim of criminal prosecution. Ivory provides information upon request to a natural person as to what personal data are stored. We also correct or erase personal data on request, insofar as there are no statutory storage obligations. The Data Protection Officer is available in such cases as the contact person.
Subscription to our newsletter
On the Ivory website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our newsletter. The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted, as well as when the newsletter is ordered from the controller. Ivory informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of a newsletter about enterprise offers. This newsletter may only be received if you have a valid e-mail address and you register for the newsletter. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered by you for the first time dispatch of the newsletter, for legal reasons, in the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to prove whether the owner of the e-mail address as the data subject is authorized to receive the newsletter. During the registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject at the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date, and it therefore serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller. The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-mail, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in question, as this could be the case in the event of modifications to the newsletter offer, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances. There will be no transfer of personal data collected by the newsletter service to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by you at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which you have given for sending the newsletter, may be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revocation of consent, a corresponding link is found in each newsletter.
Data protection provisions about the application and use of Twitter
On its website Ivory has integrated components of Twitter. Twitter is a multilingual, publicly-accessible microblogging service on which users may publish and spread tweets, i.e. short messages limited to 140 characters. These short messages are available for everyone, including those who are not logged on to Twitter. The tweets are also displayed to so-called followers of the respective user. Followers are other Twitter users who follow a user's tweets. Furthermore, Twitter allows you to address a wide audience via hashtags, links or retweets.
The operating Company of Twitter is Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, UNITED STATES.
Twitter receives information via the Twitter component that the data subject has visited our website, provided that the data subject is logged in on Twitter at the time of the call-up to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on the Twitter component or not. If such a transmission of information to Twitter is not desirable for the data subject, that he may prevent this by logging off from their Twitter account before a call-up to our website is made. The applicable data protection provisions of Twitter may be accessed under https://twitter.com/privacy?lang=en.
Data protection provisions about the application and use of Facebook
Data protection provisions about the application and use of LinkedIn
Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google Analytics
On this website, we have integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the anonymizer function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so- called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub- page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimization of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising. The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.
