It is Threedy GmbH's practice to seek appropriate protection for information in these types of transactions.
Data transfer to third countries
The adoption of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has created a uniform basis for data protection in Europe. Your data is therefore predominantly processed by companies to which the GDPR applies. If, however, processing is carried out by services of third parties outside the European Union or the European Economic Area, these must meet the special requirements of Art. 44 et seq. GDPR. This means that the processing takes place based on special guarantees, such as the officially recognized determination by the EU Commission of a level of data protection corresponding to the EU or the observance of officially recognized special contractual obligations, the so-called "standard contractual clauses".
The tracking measures listed below and used by us are carried out based on Art. 6 Para. 1 Sent. 1 (f) GDPR. With the tracking measures used, we want to ensure a needs-based design and the continuous optimization of our website. Furthermore, we use tracking measures to statistically record the use of our website and to analyze it for the purpose of optimizing our website offerings. These interests are considered legitimate within the meaning of the afore mentioned provision. For the respective data processing purposes and data categories, please refer to the corresponding tracking tools described in detail below.
