With this in mind, it goes without saying that all personal data processing activities are only carried out in strict compliance with the statutory data protection regulations.
In order to make you feel secure when visiting our websites and using our extranet, we would like to detail in this data privacy declaration how and why we perform these data processing activities. This data privacy declaration applies to the use of the //SEIBERT/MEDIA websites and to the //SEIBERT/MEDIA applications which can be accessed via our own or external websites and in app stores.
In general, you can use our website without providing personal data. We only receive concrete personal data when website visitors and customers provide us with data of their own volition, for example when making an enquiry via telephone, using an online contact form, logging into our extranet, or purchasing licenses via //SEIBERT/MEDIA.
The collection, processing and use of your data is only done for purely internal purposes, e.g. to process and deliver orders, offer services and to perform services, and further improve our offerings, as well as to carry out market research and advertising activities. Data will not be transmitted for purposes other than those mentioned above, in particular, for example, your data shall not be disclosed in return for payment.
Here is some more practical report about how we do privacy and GDPR in our company in a blog post: DSGVO and GDPR – How we seek and obtain customer consent.
This data privacy notice applies to the //SEIBERT/MEDIA and draw.io websites and to personal data collected via these websites.
For websites published by other providers, to which we have linked, in particular hyperlinks to social networks and YouTube content, the data privacy notices for those platforms and services apply.
The responsibility for the processing of personal data on these internet pages within the meaning of the general data protection regulation (GDPR) lies with:

You can contact our data protection officer by e-mail at email@example.com, by mail at the above address with the addressee „The Data Protection Officer“ or by telephone at +49 611 20570-110.
Personal data is anything that can be used to identify you, e.g. name, address, email.
5.1.1. //SEIBERT/MEDIA only accepts orders when provided with the full name of the ordering company’s contact person, a valid email address to establish and maintain our contractual relationship, and the company’s data and (invoice) address. We require personal data:
5.1.2. Personal data is stored by //SEIBERT/MEDIA in particular for the purpose of establishing and processing contracts. For this purpose, it may be necessary to pass on your personal data to third parties, such as a partner licensor of //SEIBERT/MEDIA, who acts on behalf of //SEIBERT/MEDIA. These third parties are not authorized to use any data shared with them for purposes other than those as stated in this declaration. Data processing activities are especially necessary in order to grant you access to the //SEIBERT/MEDIA „extranet“.
6.2.1. //SEIBERT/MEDIA uses information provided by people and companies in accordance with data protection regulations for the maintenance of customer relationships, e.g. by providing information about our similar products (product recommendations) by email, regardless of whether you have subscribed to our newsletter. All legal requirements are strictly observed. You can object to the use of your data at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the base rates.
6.2.2. The most effective way to prevent us from analyzing how you use our services is to use a cookie blocker. For example, the Ghostery browser extension provides a simple and effective way to deactivate cookies completely or selectively. If you send a request by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, we will delete all information about you from our CRM system. If you are using multiple email addresses, please specify all email addresses to be deleted. You can also instruct us to delete all data except stored email addresses. In this way, we can delete all personal information, but store a note with your profile containing only your email address, indicating that no emails should be sent to these email addresses in the future.
6.2.3. Anonymous tracking can help to improve our own software as well. For draw.io for Atlassian Confluence and Jira, we have decided that we will not transmit any data from the draw.io apps to reach an incredibly high level of data security and privacy. Learn more about the no tracking stance of draw.io here. For Linchpin Intranet, however, we do use the power of anonymous tracking with an opt-out mechanism. Learn more about anonymous tracking in Linchpin here.
As a visitor to our website, you have various rights under the GDPR, in particular, the following articles: 15-18, 20, 21, 77.
You can request access to your personal data that is stored and processed by us. In your request, you should specify your concern to make it easier for us to compile the data.
If the information we have stored about you is not or no longer correct, you can request it be corrected. If your data is incomplete, you can request it be completed.
You can request the deletion of your personal data under the conditions of §17 GDPR. Your claim for deletion depends, among other things, on whether the data concerning you is covered by a right of retention or is still needed for us to fulfill our statutory obligations.
Within the framework of §18 GDPR, you have the right to demand a restriction on the processing of your data.
You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. This applies, in particular, if we process your data because of a legitimate interest. However, we cannot always comply with this, e.g. if we are obliged to process and store your data in accordance with tax laws for auditing purposes. In this case, however, the data will be blocked for further use and deleted after the end of the statutory retention period.
If you have consented to let us process your data, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time. This does not affect the legality of any processing carried out based on your initial consent until it was revoked.
You have the right to receive the data concerning you that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format. If you provided your data with your explicit consent or with a contract, you have the right that we transfer the data to a responsible person specified by you.
If you believe that we have not complied with data protection regulations when processing your data, you can lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority, which will examine your complaint.
A list of the addresses of the German data protection supervisory authorities can be found at:

9.2. The information collected by these cookies does not allow us to draw conclusions about you. If our website is visited again using the device, the information in these cookies is accessed. The information is used to increase the usability and user experience on our websites.
9.3. Where the integration of cookies is not based on your consent, as per §6.1.1.a. of the GDPR, or to implement or conclude a contract as per §6.1.1.b. of the GDPR, the cookies are integrated based on our legitimate interests in providing modern and efficient applications that enhance the user’s experience as per §6.1.1.f. of the GDPR.

To improve your experience of our website and to better understand how you use our website, third-party content such as maps from Google Maps, videos from YouTube, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are embedded into //SEIBERT/MEDIA websites. The providers of this content must have access to your IP, because without this, the third-party providers would not be able to technically send the content to your device. We make every effort to use only service providers which use IP addresses solely to deliver content. However, we have no influence on whether the third-party provider also stores IP addresses for statistical purposes, for example. If we become aware of any additional use of the IP addresses, we will endeavor to inform you.
Where the integration of these third-party services is not based on your consent, as per §6.1.1.a. of the GDPR, or to implement or conclude a contract as per §6.1.1.b. of the GDPR, these third-party services are integrated based on our legitimate interests in providing modern and efficient applications that enhance the user’s experience as per §6.1.1.f. of the GDPR.
