SKILINE USERS provide ALTUROS with personal data in order to use the free SKILINE service. In addition, data shall be processed for marketing purposes, disclosed to ALTUROS partners and used by ALTUROS or ALTUROS partners for sending further information to USERS. The USER’s declaration of consent to ALTUROS for using SKILINE services is used as the legal basis for the processing of data.

The following information is logged: name of the accessed file, data and time of access, transferred data amount, notice of successful access, web browser and IP address of the inquiring computer. The actions of USERS in the SKILINE app (iOS and Android) are also logged and disclosed to ALTUROS and ALTUROS partners.

4. Involvement of third-party suppliers
4.1 Google Analytics with anonymisation function
The information generated by these cookies, for example time, location and frequency of website visit, including IP address, is transmitted to Google in the USA and stored there.
ALTUROS uses Google Analytics on its website with an IP anonymisation function. In this case, the USER’s IP address is shortened and thus anonymised by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Google will use this information to analyse the use of our website, compile reports for us on website activity and to render further services related to website and Internet use. Google shall also pass on this information, if required, to third parties so far as this is legally required or so far as third parties process this data on behalf of Google.
Google shall, by its own account, never associate the USER’s IP address with other Google data. The USER may disable cookies in his/her corresponding browser settings. However, please note in this case that the USER will not be able to use all ALTUROS website functions to their full extent.
In addition, Google offers a deactivation option for the most common browsers. This gives the USER more control over what data is collected and processed by Google. In the event the USER activates this option, no information about the website visit shall be transmitted to Google Analytics. Activation, however, does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or other web-analysis service providers used by us. The USER can find out more about the deactivation option offered by Google and the activation of this option via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
4.2 Google Maps
ALTUROS uses the component “Google Maps” by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter “Google”.
If the USER does not agree to this processing, he/she may deactivate the “Google Maps” service and disable the transfer of data to Google. To do so, the USER must deactivate Java Script in his/her browser. Please note that in this case “Google Maps” cannot be used or may only be used with limited function.
4.3 Use of YouTube components
Components of YouTube, LLC 901 Cherry Ave., 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, a company by Google Inc., Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, are used on the ALTUROS website. When a website containing an embedded video is loaded, a connection to the YouTube servers is established and the content is transmitted to the USER’s browser and displayed on the Internet site. YouTube states that only data will be transmitted to the YouTube server, including what ALTUROS Internet sites were visited, when viewing the video. In the event you are simultaneously logged in to YouTube, this information shall be assigned to your YouTube account. You may prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account before visiting our websites.
You can find out more about YouTube’s data protection policy via the following link provided by Google: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en&gl=de
4.4 Use of AddThis
ALTUROS uses the addthis.com bookmark service on the website. AddThis is a service by Clearspring Technologies Inc., 8000 Westpark Drive, Suite 625, McLean, VA 2210, USA. Upon loading the website equipped with such AddThis components, these components prompt the browser used by the USER to download a corresponding display of the addthis.com components. Through this process, addthis.com is informed about which specific sites are currently being visited by the USER. Furthermore, addthis.com shall be informed about the IP address of the USER, browser type, browser language, previously loaded websites as well as the date and time of the website visit, in order to create anonymised user profiles using this data. This data enables AddThis and its partners to target website visitors with personalised, interest-related advertising. Advertising material is integrated based on browser cookies set by addthis.com which analyse the user behaviour of website visitors. The USER may permanently disable the addthis.com cookies setting by downloading and installing the Opt-Out-Cookie via the following link: http://www.addthis.com/privacy/opt-out.
5. Links to other websites and social media
5.1 Links to other websites
5.2 Social media
Some ALTUROS websites may contain third-party contents, applications or plug-ins which monitor or improve your use of the contents, applications or plug-ins. When a USER, for example, shares an article with another using a social media share button (e.g. Facebook, Twitter or Google Plus), this process will be recorded by the social network that created the button. More information on the use of USER data can be found in the privacy statement of the selected service provider.
6. USER obligations and liability
The USERS are obligated to use ALTUROS services lawfully. ALTUROS services must not be misused in order to illegally distribute relevant content or to defy the rights of third parties. The USER is liable for all contents (e.g. images, text) made available for or distributed to others. It is the responsibility of the USER to ensure that all contents are legal and do not defy the rights of third parties. Before uploading image files, USERS must ensure that they possess the relevant rights of use for the image or corresponding file and that the publication of such contents, in accordance with legal provisions, does not defy the rights of third parties or standards of public decency. ALTUROS is, in particular, not liable for the loss of user data. The USER is prohibited from using data with the aim of using contents for commercial purposes. USERS release ALTUROS from any third-party claims that arise through the fault of the USER as a result of the illegal use of ALTUROS services. USERS must inform ALTUROS immediately of claims by third parties as a result of illegal use.
7. Exemption from responsibility and liability
ALTUROS does not guarantee that the website and SKILINE app is free from irregularities or errors, nor that such irregularities or errors can be rectified. ALTUROS also does not guarantee that the website and SKILINE app will function without disruptions or faults. ALTUROS is in no way liable for damages, foreseeable or otherwise, that occur through the use of the website or through the partial or complete inability to use the website. ALTUROS shall not be liable for the failure to comply with the applicable provisions and laws of the customer’s respective country. The transmission of email messages via public networks is asynchronous, delicate, unprotected and may be intercepted, read and modified by third parties. Both email sender and recipient as well as the content of the email may be identified. This is also applicable for emails used as part of communication with ALTUROS. ALTUROS is authorised by the USER to send the USER emails. ALTUROS shall not be liable for any damages as a result of a defective or interrupted email transmission or transmission affected by spyware. Emails are considered as delivered when they have been sent to the address provided by the USER or when an email address is used that has previously been used successfully in correspondence with ALTUROS. Time of delivery for emails is deemed to be the time of sending from ALTUROS.
8. Changes to the General Terms & Conditions
The current version of the General Terms & Conditions is the version dated 1 May 2018. In the event of any important changes, a notice will be published on the website and app for a period of 30 days. By continuing to use SKILINE services and the SKILINE website and/or app, the USER agrees to and accepts the new version.
