The legal basis of data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act of Germany and the Telemedia Act (TMG) of Germany.

Access data / server log files
WYRE (or our internet provider) collects data on each access to the offer (so-called server log files). This data includes: name of the website, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful retrieval, browser type along with version, the operating system of the user, referrer URL (previously visited), IP address and the requesting provider. WYRE uses the data only for statistical purposes, for the purpose of operation, security and the optimization of the offer. However WYRE reserves the right to log data to check later if there is reasonable suspicion of unlawful use due to concrete indications.

Cookies are small files that make it possible to store specific information related to the access device of the user on the device itself (PC, smartphone, etc.). They are used for the user-friendliness of websites and thus for the benefit of the user (for example, storing login data). Also, they serve to assess and analyze statistical data of the website in order to improve the provided offer. The user can influence the use of cookies. Most browsers have an option to limit or completely prevent the storage or usage of cookies. However, the use and comfort of use of the offer will be restricted without cookies.

Handling of personal data
Personal information is information that will help to identify a person, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes name, email address or phone number. Data on preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites were viewed by someone is also personal data.

In general the collection, use, or use of personal data is not required for the use of the offer. Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by WYRE if it is permitted by law or if the user consents to the collection of such data, which is given, for example, in the following cases:

  1. a) Registration function

The data entered during the registration will be used for the purpose of the use of the offer. Users can be notified via email regarding offer or registration related information, such as changes in the scope of the offer or technical circumstances. The data collected is the data the user provides during the registration process. These data include name, postal address, email address, IP address.

With the newsletter we inform you about us and our offers.

If you want to receive the newsletter, we require a valid e-mail address and information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the email address or that its owner agrees to receive the newsletter. Further data is not collected. These data are used only for sending the newsletter and will not be disclosed to third parties.

By registering for the newsletter, we store your IP address and the date of registration. Storing the data is done solely as evidence for the case that a third party uses an email address fraudulently and subscribes to the newsletter without the knowledge of the rightful owner of the email address.

Your consent to the storage of data and e-mail address as well as the use of this data for sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time. The revocation can be made via a link in the newsletter itself or via a message to the contact details stated herein.

  1. d) Contract

A registration is required for the conclusion of a contract between you and WYRE, which requires personal data. Personal data required include the last name, first name, postal address, email address, phone number.

  1. e) Order processing

As part of processing the order and fulfilling the contract between WYRE and the user it may be required to disclose your personal data to companies which WYRE uses to provide the service (e.g. logistics companies). No data other than that required to complete the business transaction will be passed on to third parties.

Submission of data to third parties and settlement data use
We transmit billing data to other service providers or third parties to the extent necessary to determine the billed amount and the settlement with the customer. Should WYRE have a contract in place with a respective third party for the collection of the payment, we will transmit data to this third party to the extent necessary for the purpose. For the purpose of market research of other service providers anonymous user data can be shared. We use data beyond the end of user activity as far as the data is required for purposes of the settlement with the customer (invoice data). We combine data about the user’s usage of different tele-media services to the extent necessary for billing. To comply with existing legal, statutory or contractual retention periods the service provider may block the data.

Usage of tele-media
WYRE uses and collects personal data to the extent necessary to permit the use of tele-media (usage data). Such usage data include in particular characteristics to identify the customer, information regarding the beginning and end and the scope of the respective usage and information about the tele-media used by the customer.

Advertising and Marketing
WYRE uses personal customer data for advertising purposes, however, only if the customer has given its consent.

Integration of services and content of third parties
Potentially, content of third parties might be included in the offer, for example YouTube videos, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics. This always assumes that the provider of such content is given the IP address of the user. Without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of each user. The IP address is therefore necessary for the presentation of such content. We strive to use only such services, where the respective providers are using the IP address only for the purpose of content delivery. However, we have no control over if a third part stores the IP address, for example, for statistical purposes.

Google Analytics
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies” which are text files that are stored in your browser and which enable an analysis to be carried out on your use of the website. The information about your visit to the website recorded by the cookie (including your IP address) is sent to a Google server in the USA. The anonymizing function “_anonymizeIp()” is used for the IP address on the website so that the IP address is stored and processed by Google only in an abbreviated form using the last 8 digits. Google will use the information recorded to evaluate your visit to the website, to compile reports about your browsing activity for the website administrators and to provide other services associated with the use of the website and the internet.

Google will also share this information with third parties as necessary if this is prescribed by law or where third parties process this data on Google’s behalf. Google will never link your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of cookies by changing the settings in your browser. Data recording and storage by Google Analytics in general can be prevented at any time using a browser extension available at, which will remain effective for the future.

Use of Facebook Social Plugins
Our website and offer uses plug-ins for the social networking site, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). If you access one of our webpages that uses one of these plug-ins, a link is created to the Facebook servers and the plug-in is shown on the page as a result of this information being reported to your browser. As a result, the Facebook server is sent information regarding which of our webpages you visited. If you are currently logged into Facebook, Facebook allocates this information to your personal Facebook user account. When you use the plug-in functions (e.g. clicking the “Like” button or adding a comment), this information is also allocated to your Facebook account. You can prevent this by logging out of Facebook before using the plug-in. You can find further information about the way Facebook stores and uses your data, about your rights in relation to this and the options for protecting your private sphere in Facebook’s data protection information.

This offer uses the Twitter buttons. These buttons are offered by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. They can be identified by terminology such as “Twitter” or a schematic blue bird. Using the buttons, it is possible to share a comment or a page of this offer on Twitter or to follow WYRE on Twitter.

When a user visits a web page of this website, which contains such a button, the browser will establish a direct connection with the servers of Twitter. The content of the Twitter buttons is transmitted from Twitter directly to the user’s browser. WYRE therefore has no impact on the amount of data that Twitter is using with the help of this plugin and informs the user according to its knowledge. According to this, only the IP address of the user is transmitted with the URL of the relevant website when the buttons are included, but not used for other purposes except for the representation of the buttons.
