DATA PRIVACY POLICY

Badimals aims to balance the user’s privacy concerns with the need to monitor the site’s performance, protect against spam and other security risks and measure the impact of Google Ads. To achieve these objectives, badimals uses third-party cookies (see below for more details).

 

COOKIES

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that a website stores on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. Cookies are used to maintain state information as you navigate the site or return later. Cookies are a text-based data format that cannot contain any executable code and are not a potential security risk.

First-party cookies are loaded by a site when you visit; normally they are deleted when quitting the browser (session cookies). Third-party cookies are loaded by an external service that the site is using, such as Google Analytics; they are normally persistent and track your use of the site (tracking cookies); they are not deleted automatically when you quit your browser.

 

What does badimals use cookies for?

The badimals website uses:

 

Managing cookies

You can use your browser privacy preferences to manage acceptance and deletion of cookies. Incognito/private browser mode allows you to browse the web without recording webpages and files in your browser or account history. Cookies are deleted after you have closed all incognito/private windows; bookmarks and settings are stored until you delete them.

   To prevent your browser from automatically participating in Google Analytics, install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on (available for Microsoft Internet Explorer 11, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari and Opera).

Personal information (IP addresses, contact requests, meta & communication data, contract data, contact details, names and web pages accessed) collected on this website is processed and stored on the hoster’s server, conforming to GDPR Article 6 (1b and 1f). The hoster will only process your data as far as necessary to fulfill its performance obligations and to follow our instructions with respect to such data.

 

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS

Your data-protection rights

You have the right to:

 

Revoking consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your consent. You can revoke any given consent at any time by sending an email to badimals (GDPR Article 21). The legality of any data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation. Badimals will not use data for direct mailing or email marketing.

 

Your right of appeal

In the event of any GDPR Article 21 violations, you have a right of appeal to the relevant supervisory authority in the member state of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement. The right to complain is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedies.

 

Your right to data portability

You have the right to access your data that we process (on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract or to a third party) in a standard digital format.
