Liability for all contents, contents on health topics and links

Do not use information from opportYOUnity or other websites as a basis for health-related decisions and do not make self-diagnosis. The articles of opportYOUnity are intended to provide general information on the health of body, mind and soul, not to provide advice in the event of individual concerns. If you have health problems, please consult a doctor, alternative practitioner or therapist. Only an individual examination can lead to an appropriate diagnosis and therapeutic decision. Take medication only after consulting a doctor or pharmacist. The articles of opportYOUnity may contain individual errors, outdated or incomplete information.

We cannot accept any liability for the accuracy, completeness and topicality of the contents. However, the contents of our pages have been prepared with the greatest care. As a service provider, we are responsible for our own content on these pages in accordance with § 7 para.1 TMG (German Telemedia Act) and general laws. According to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, we are not obliged to monitor transmitted or stored external information or to investigate circumstances that indicate illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information according to general laws remain unaffected by this. 

However, liability in this respect is only possible from the time of knowledge of a concrete infringement. If we become aware of any such legal infringements, we will remove the content in question immediately.

Our website contains links to external websites of third parties over whose content we have no influence. Therefore, we cannot accept any liability for the contents of external websites. The respective provider or operator of the websites is always responsible for the content of the linked pages. The external websites linked on our website were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. Illegal contents were not identified at the time of linking. A permanent and repeated control of the content of the linked websites is not reasonable without concrete evidence of a violation of the law. If infringements of the law of linked external websites become known, such links will be removed immediately.

Copyright

The designations and brand names of external companies mentioned on our website are subject to the respective brand, patent or trademark protection. All logos and images shown and all brand names mentioned are the property of the respective companies and/or persons.

The contents and works available on the website are subject to German copyright law. The reproduction, editing, distribution and any kind of use outside the limits of copyright law require the written consent of the respective author or creator. Copies and downloads of this site – even in extracts – are only permitted for private, non-commercial use. Insofar as the content on this website was not created by the operator, the copyrights of third parties are observed. In particular, third-party content is identified as such. Should a copyright infringement nevertheless exist, we request that you inform us accordingly so that we can remove such content immediately.

All information on this website may contain inaccuracies or errors. Therefore, the information on this website can be changed or updated at any time and without prior notice.

Privacy policy

The responsible body within the meaning of the data protection laws, in particular the EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (DSGVO), is the person responsible for the website named above in the imprint.

Your rights of data subjects

You can exercise the following rights at any time by contacting our data protection officer:

Information about your data stored with us and how it is processed, correcting incorrect personal data, deletion of your data stored with us, restriction of data processing, provided that we are not yet allowed to delete your data due to legal obligations, opposition to the processing of your data by us and data transferability, if you have consented to data processing or have concluded a contract with us.

If you have given us your consent, you can revoke it at any time with effect for the future.

You can contact the supervisory authority responsible for you at any time with a complaint. Your competent supervisory authority depends on the federal state in which you live, work or are suspected of having committed an infringement.

A list of the regulatory authorities (for the non-public sector) with their addresses can be found at: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.

Purposes of data processing by the Controller and third parties

We process your personal data only for the purposes stated in this privacy policy. Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those mentioned. We will only pass on your personal data to third parties if:

you have given your express consent, the processing is necessary for the execution of a contract with you, the processing is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation, the processing is necessary to protect legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in not disclosing your data.

Deletion or blocking of data

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as this is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as required by the various storage periods provided for by law. After the respective purpose has ceased to exist or these periods have expired, the corresponding data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

Collection of general information when visiting our website

When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected using a cookie. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider and similar. This is exclusively information which does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.

This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the contents of websites requested by you and is mandatory when using the Internet. It is processed in particular for the following purposes:

Ensuring that the website can be connected without problems, ensuring a smooth use of our website, evaluation of system safety and stability, and for other administrative purposes.

The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest from the aforementioned purposes for data collection. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. The recipients of the data are only the responsible body and, if applicable, processors. Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us, if necessary, in order to optimise our Internet presence and the technology behind it. The data automatically collected in this way is not merged with other data sources. However, if concrete indications of illegal use of the website become known, the data collected can be checked subsequently, for example to determine the location of a website user.

Cookies

Like many other websites, we also use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are transferred to your hard drive from a website server. This automatically provides us with certain data such as IP address, browser used, operating system and your connection to the Internet.

Cookies cannot be used to start programs or transfer viruses to a computer. We can use the information contained in cookies to make navigation easier for you and to enable our websites to be displayed correctly.

Under no circumstances will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.

Of course, you can always view our website without cookies. Internet browsers are regularly set to accept cookies. In general, you can deactivate the use of cookies at any time via the settings of your browser. Please use the help functions of your Internet browser to find out how to change these settings. Please note that individual functions of our website may not work if you have deactivated the use of cookies.

SSL encryption

In order to protect the security of your data during transmission, we may use a state-of-the-art encryption process (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS if data transmission is planned and possible at all, for example via a contact form or registration form.

Newsletter

On the basis of your expressly given consent, we may send you our newsletter or comparable information on a regular basis by e-mail to the e-mail address you have provided.

To receive the newsletter, it is sufficient to enter your e-mail address. If you register to receive our newsletter, the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers can also be informed by e-mail about circumstances that are relevant to the service or registration (for example changes to the newsletter offer or technical conditions).

For an effective registration we need a valid e-mail address. In order to verify that a registration is actually made by the owner of an e-mail address, we use the “double opt-in” procedure. For this purpose, we log the ordering of the newsletter, the sending of a confirmation e-mail and the receipt of the answer requested herewith. No further data is collected. The data will be used exclusively for sending the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of your personal data and its use for sending the newsletter at any time. There is a corresponding link in every newsletter. You can also unsubscribe directly on this website at any time or inform us of your wish to do so using the contact option at the end of this data protection notice.

E-mail and contact form

If you contact us by e-mail or contact form with regard to questions of any kind, you give us your voluntary consent for the purpose of contacting us. To do so, you must provide us with a valid e-mail address. This serves the purpose of assigning the enquiry and the subsequent response to it. The provision of further data is optional. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your enquiry and for possible follow-up questions. Personal data will be automatically deleted once the enquiry you have made has been dealt with.

Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts and Ajax Jquery)

In order to display our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Ajax and Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this website. Google Web Fonts are transferred to your browser’s cache to avoid multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Web Fonts or prevents access, content will be displayed in a default font.

Calling up script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. It is theoretically possible – although it is currently unclear whether and for what purposes – that operators of such libraries collect data.

The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Embedded YouTube videos

On some of our websites we embed Youtube videos. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection is established to servers of Youtube. This tells Youtube which pages you visit. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, Youtube can assign your surfing behaviour to you personally. You can prevent this by first logging out of your Youtube account.

If a YouTube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behaviour.

If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google Ad programme, you will not have to expect such cookies when watching Youtube videos. However, Youtube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in your browser.

Further information on data protection at “Youtube” can be found in the provider’s privacy policy at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/social plugins

We may offer you the possibility of using so-called “social media buttons” on our website. To protect your data, we rely on the “Hustle” solution for implementation. This means that these buttons are integrated on the website merely as a graphic, which contains a link to the corresponding website of the button provider. By clicking on the graphic, you will be forwarded to the services of the respective provider. Only then will your data be sent to the respective provider. If you do not click on the graphic, there will be no exchange between you and the social media button providers. Information on the collection and use of your data in the social networks can be found in the respective terms of use of the respective providers.

We include the following social networks on our website:

Instagram & Facebook Inc. (1601 S. California Ave – Palo Alto – CA 94304 – USA)

Twitter Inc. (795 Folsom St. – Suite 600 – San Francisco – CA 94107 – USA)

Youtbe & Google Plus/Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway – Mountain View – CA 94043 – USA)

LinkedIn Corporation (2029 Stierlin Court – Mountain View – CA 94043 – USA)

Guest contributions and partners

Some contributions are guest contributions. Furthermore, we are a member of the Amazon partner programme. If a purchase is made via a link, we receive a commission, but this does not affect the purchase price.

Change of our data protection regulations

We reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration so that it always meets the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection declaration then applies to your renewed visit.

Questions to the data protection officer

If you have any questions regarding data protection, please write us an e-mail or contact the responsible person named in the imprint.

Right of appeal to a supervisory authority

You also have the right to complain to a competent data protection supervisory authority about the processing of your personal data by us.

We reserve the right to change this data protection information. We will announce changes in good time on our website. We recommend that you visit the website regularly to keep yourself informed about the current status of the data protection information. Insofar as a certain type of data use is dependent on your consent and a change to this data protection notice affects the data use in question, we will – insofar as legally required – obtain your consent again for such changes.

The data protection declaration was created using the data protection declaration generator of activeMind AG.
