Thank you for choosing to visit our websites and applications (this applies to both the web-based application and an installed application downloaded from an application store; hereinafter simply referred to as “app” in abbreviation) and your interest in our company. The protection of your data and information is of the highest importance to us. With the following information on data protection, we would like to inform you for what purposes and to what extent we collect or process your personal data and information when you use our websites, apps or software, and how we protect your privacy when you provide us with your data.
Accountability and Reliability
Vaitego GmbH (Nussbergstr. 17, 38102 Braunschweig, phone: +49 531 224 337 60, e-mail: email@example.com) is the operator of these websites and apps, and is responsible for compliance with the applicable data protection regulations within the provisions of Art. 4 para. 7 GDPR. We store and process the personal data and information of our users in accordance with the relevant regulations, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR, according to EU-GDPR), the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG/FDPA) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG) in their current versions. All personal data will only be collected for specified, clear and legitimate purposes and will not be kept longer than necessary.
Personal data are individual details about personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person (e.g. name, date of birth and contact data).
In principle, you can use our websites and apps without providing your personal data and information. However, for certain applications of our websites and apps, it may become necessary for you to provide us with your data. Therefore, there may be restrictions on the use of our websites and apps without providing your data. As soon as you visit our websites and apps, our web servers temporarily store each access in a log file. The following data may be collected and stored until automated deletion: e.g. IP address, date and time of access, transferred data volumes, reports on the success of accessing the websites and apps, identification data of the browser and operating system used, the website used for access, and the IP address of your Internet access provider. This data is processed for the purpose of enabling the use of the websites and apps, system security, technical administration of the network infrastructure and optimization of the Internet offering. This is to be regarded as a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.
Acquisition of other Data
We collect, store and process your personal data and information (e.g. first name, surname, address, e-mail address, telephone number) if a business relationship exists or is to be established, e.g. within the scope of a subscription or an order, as well as with regard to the content and changes to the business relationship. In addition, we use your personal data regarding you having submitted it to us for registration on our website and having consented to the processing of your personal data. We also collect, store and process your personal data when you contact us via the contact form, blog function, the career page or by sending us an e-mail, this being necessary to process your enquiries and correspondence. The personal data and information collected by us will be deleted immediately as soon as they are no longer required for this purpose. This does not apply if there are legal retention periods. Providing your personal data is voluntary.
On our blog, we publish various articles on topics related to our activities. As a visitor, you have the possibility to make public comments. When you submit a comment, it will be displayed with the name you entered. We recommend using a pseudonym. Required for our blog function is the indication of the user name and the e-mail address. All other information is voluntary. The e-mail address is required since we have to contact you if a third party complains about your comments. The legality of this data processing results from Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b and f GDPR. Your IP address is stored when you make a comment. This is necessary for us to be able to take action against liability claims in cases of possible publication of illegal content. Your comments will be published after a review. We reserve the right to delete comments if they are objected to as unlawful by third parties.
On our website you can subscribe for a free newsletter. To transmit the newsletter the only mandatory information is your e-mail address. We will use your name, if provided, to personalise the newsletter. The provided data will not be given to third parties. For the newsletter subscription, we use a so-called double-opt-in-process. In detail this means, that after receiving your subscription, we send a confirmation e-mail to your provided e-mail address. There, we kindly ask you to approve, that you would like to receive the newsletter. Provided that you confirm your request of receiving the newsletter, we will store your data as long as you unsubscribe from the newsletter or revoke your approval. The storage is entered for the sole purpose of transmitting the newsletter to you. Furthermore, we save, in each case of subscription and approval, your IP-address and the time of approval to prevent abuse of your personal data. You can revoke your approval of transmission the newsletter at any time. To do so, click on the provided link in the bottom of the newsletter, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or a message to the contact that is mentioned in the imprint. In case of a withdrawal or cancellation of the newsletter, your data will be removed from the mailing list and subsequently deleted completely. As far as we raised your contact data (e-mail address and if available your name) in the course of further business relations, the related retention periods are valid.
On our website we use the service of MailChimp (Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA) for the distribution of newsletters. In the course of these services, inter alia, the distribution of the newsletter is organised and analysed. Hence, the data provided in the course of the newsletter reception (i.e. your e-mail address or your name) is saved on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. Furthermore, our newsletter campaigns are analysed with MailChimp. Provided that you open the e-mails sent by MailChimp, data that is included in the e-mails connects with the MailChimp servers. With this process we can determine, whether newsletter messages have been opened and optionally which links have been clicked. Furthermore, in the course of the analysis technical information, i.e. time of demand, IP-address or browser type, are collected. This technical information only conduces the static analysis of the newsletter campaigns and cannot be associated with the recipient of the newsletter. The analysis is implemented to be able to customize to the interests of the recipients. In case you don’t agree to the described analysis, you have to unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, there is a corresponding link in each newsletter message, as described in the paragraph before. Furthermore, you can unsubscribe by sending an e-mail to email@example.com or sending a message to the contact given in the imprint. The data processing for the newsletter happens due to your permission pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. You can revoke your permission and thus unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time as described above. The withdrawal is valid for the future data processing. The legality of the data processing at the time before the withdrawal won’t be affected by the withdrawal. The personal data that is collected for the purpose of the newsletter will be saved until an incoming withdrawal. In case of a withdrawal the data, collected in the course of the newsletter distribution, will be deleted at vaitego GmbH and the servers of MailChimp. As far as we raised your contact data (e-mail address and if available your name) in the course of further business relations, the related retention periods are valid. MailChimp has a certification according to the “EU-US-Privacy-Shield“. This is an agreement between the European Union and the USA, that is designed to assure the compliance of the european, data protection perspective standards. Further information to the data processing of MailChimp can be found via the following link: https://mailchimp.com/legal/terms/.

Data Collection when Using the App
(1) Downloading the App
When you download our app from the App Store, the necessary information is sent to the App Store. This information includes the user name, the e-mail address and customer number of your account, the time of download and the individual device identification number. However, we have no influence over this procedure and are therefore not responsible for it. In principle, you can use our app without providing your personal data and information. However, for certain applications of our app it may be necessary for you to provide us with your data and information. Therefore, there may be restrictions on the use of our app without providing your data.
(2) Use of the App
As soon as you visit our app, our web servers temporarily store each access in a log file. This is necessary to be able to offer you the corresponding functions of our app. The following data may be collected and stored until it is automatically deleted: IP address, date and time of access, transferred data volumes, messages about the success of accessing the app, identification data of the browser and operating system used, the website from which access is made, and the IP address of your Internet access provider. This data is processed for the purpose of enabling the use of the app, system security, technical administration of the network infrastructure and optimization of the Internet offering. Vaitego GmbH processes personal data for the customer, which the customer enters within the scope of using the contractual software. The contractual software is offered by Vaitego GmbH as Software as a Service, i.e. hosting, maintenance and provision of the corresponding software. For this purpose, the customer processes personal data arising in connection with the use of school software, such as first name, surname, absences, grades, school subject, etc.. Furthermore, Vaitego GmbH stores customer data in order to establish the contractual relationship at all (including first name, surname, address data, birthday, telephone number, e-mail, account details). This is to be regarded as a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.
(3) Customer’s Control Rights
The customer has the right to check Vaitego GmbH’s compliance with the legal data protection regulations or the customer’s instructions at any time to the required extent. The customer can check the technical and organizational measures at the premises of Vaitego GmbH or any subcontractors during normal business hours after prior notification and within a reasonable period of time. The customer will ensure that the controls are only carried out to the necessary extent if the operational processes of Vaitego GmbH or subcontractors are disturbed by the controls.
(4) Deletion of Personal Data after the end of the Contract
After termination of the contractual relationship by deletion of the customer account, Vaitego GmbH will delete all data of the customer in conformity with the data protection. With the deletion of the account, the customer agrees to the deletion of the data. This does not apply to anonymous data on statistical use within the meaning of Section 7 (5), Sentence 3 of the TEGO.CLASS General Terms and Conditions. The customer must also independently secure their data before deleting their account.
(5) Passing on of Personal Data to Payment Service Providers
Vaitego GmbH uses a payment service provider to collect the remuneration for the use of TEGO.CLASS. The necessary data (surname, first name, address, telephone number, e-mail, bank account details) will therefore be transmitted to them for payment processing. The customer consents to this transfer by confirming these data protection provisions and the TEGO.CLASS General Terms and Conditions as part of the ordering process. The transmitted data will be used exclusively for the purpose of payment processing and will be deleted after complete deletion of the customer’s account. They have the possibility to revoke their consent towards Vaitego GmbH at any time with effect for the future. However, they will not be able to use TEGO.CLASS, as only direct debit or credit card payment is available.
