Privacy Policy 

We are very delighted that you have shown interest in our enterprise. Data protection is of a  particularly high priority for the management of the Plan B Fitness Ltd.. The use of the Internet  pages of the Plan B Fitness Ltd. is possible without any indication of personal data; however, if a  data subject wants to use special enterprise services via our website, processing of personal  data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no  statutory basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent from the data subject. 

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone  number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation  (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the  Plan B Fitness Ltd.. By means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise would like to  inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use  and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this data protection  declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled. 

As the controller, the Plan B Fitness Ltd. has implemented numerous technical and  organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed  through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security  gaps, so absolute protection may not be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free  to transfer personal data to us via alternative means, e.g. by telephone. 

  1. Definitions 

The data protection declaration of the Plan B Fitness Ltd. is based on the terms used by the  European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our  data protection declaration should be legible and understandable for the general public, as well  as our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to first explain the  terminology used. 

In this data protection declaration, we use, inter alia, the following terms: 

  • a) Personal data

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“data  subject”). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by  reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to  one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social  identity of that natural person. 

  • b) Data subject

Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by the  controller responsible for the processing. 

  • c) Processing

Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal  data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage,  adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise  making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

  • d) Restriction of processing

Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in  the future. 

  • e) Profiling

Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data  to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects  concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences,  interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements. 

  • f) Pseudonymisation

Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer  be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such  additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure  that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person. 

  • g) Controller or controller responsible for the processing

Controller or controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, public authority,  agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the  processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or  Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union  or Member State law. 

  • h) Processor

Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data  on behalf of the controller. 

  • i) Recipient

Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data  are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in  the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded  

as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the  applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing. 

  • j) Third party

Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject,  controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are  authorised to process personal data. 

  • k) Consent

  1. Cookies 

The Internet pages of the Plan B Fitness Ltd. use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored  in a computer system via an Internet browser. 

Many Internet sites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A  cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which  Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie  was stored. This allows visited Internet sites and servers to differentiate the individual browser of  the dats subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet  browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID. 

Through the use of cookies, the Plan B Fitness Ltd. can provide the users of this website with  more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting. 

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized with the user  in mind. Cookies allow us, as previously mentioned, to recognize our website users. The purpose  of this recognition is to make it easier for users to utilize our website. The website user that uses  cookies, e.g. does not have to enter access data each time the website is accessed, because  this is taken over by the website, and the cookie is thus stored on the user’s computer system.  Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in an online shop. The online store remembers  the articles that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie. 

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means  of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the  setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet  browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the data  subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our  website may be entirely usable. 

  1. Collection of general data and information

The website of the Plan B Fitness Ltd. collects a series of general data and information when a  data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are  stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the  operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing  system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of  access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service  provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be  used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems. 

When using these general data and information, the Plan B Fitness Ltd. does not draw any  conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content  of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3)  ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and  (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in  case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, the Plan B Fitness Ltd. analyzes anonymously collected data  and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of  our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The  anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a  data subject. 

  1. Registration on our website 

The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the controller with the indication  of personal data. Which personal data are transmitted to the controller is determined by the  respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data subject  are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller, and for his own purposes.  The controller may request transfer to one or more processors (e.g. a parcel service) that also  uses personal data for an internal purpose which is attributable to the controller. 

By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address—assigned by the Internet service  provider (ISP) and used by the data subject—date, and time of the registration are also stored.  The storage of this data takes place against the background that this is the only way to prevent  

the misuse of our services, and, if necessary, to make it possible to investigate committed  offenses. Insofar, the storage of this data is necessary to secure the controller. This data is not  passed on to third parties unless there is a statutory obligation to pass on the data, or if the  transfer serves the aim of criminal prosecution. 

The registration of the data subject, with the voluntary indication of personal data, is intended to  enable the controller to offer the data subject contents or services that may only be offered to  registered users due to the nature of the matter in question. Registered persons are free to  change the personal data specified during the registration at any time, or to have them  completely deleted from the data stock of the controller. 

The data controller shall, at any time, provide information upon request to each data subject as  to what personal data are stored about the data subject. In addition, the data controller shall  correct or erase personal data at the request or indication of the data subject, insofar as there  are no statutory storage obligations. The entirety of the controller’s employees are available to  the data subject in this respect as contact persons. 

  1. Subscription to our newsletters 

On the website of the Plan B Fitness Ltd., users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our  enterprise’s newsletter. The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are  transmitted, as well as when the newsletter is ordered from the controller.

The Plan B Fitness Ltd. informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of a  newsletter about enterprise offers. The enterprise’s newsletter may only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject registers for the  newsletter shipping. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered by a data  subject for the first time for newsletter shipping, for legal reasons, in the double opt-in procedure.  This confirmation e-mail is used to prove whether the owner of the e-mail address as the data  subject is authorized to receive the newsletter. 

During the registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system  assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject at the time of the  registration, as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is  necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at  a later date, and it therefore serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller. 

The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will only be used to send  our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-mail, as long as  this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in question, as this  could be the case in the event of modifications to the newsletter offer, or in the event of a change  

in technical circumstances. There will be no transfer of personal data collected by the newsletter  service to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by the data subject  at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given for  shipping the newsletter, may be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revocation of consent, a  corresponding link is found in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the  newsletter at any time directly on the website of the controller, or to communicate this to the  controller in a different way. 

  1. Newsletter-Tracking 

The newsletter of the Plan B Fitness Ltd. contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a  miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file  recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online  marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, the Plan B Fitness Ltd. may see if  and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were called up  by data subjects. 

Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and  analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the shipping of the newsletter, as well as to adapt  the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. These personal  data will not be passed on to third parties. Data subjects are at any time entitled to revoke the  respective separate declaration of consent issued by means of the double-opt-in procedure. After  a revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the controller. The Plan B Fitness Ltd.  automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation. 

  1. Contact possibility via the website 

The website of the Plan B Fitness Ltd. contains information that enables a quick electronic  contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general  address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller  by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject are  automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to  the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There  is no transfer of this personal data to third parties. 

  1. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the  period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European  legislator or other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject to.

  1. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Facebook 

On this website, the controller has integrated components of the enterprise Facebook. Facebook  is a social network. 

A social network is a place for social meetings on the Internet, an online community, which  usually allows users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social  network may serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences, or enable the  Internet community to provide personal or business-related information. Facebook allows social  network users to include the creation of private profiles, upload photos, and network through  friend requests. 

The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025,  United States. If a person lives outside of the United States or Canada, the controller is the  Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. 

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet website, which is operated by the  controller and into which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-ins) was integrated, the web  browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to  download display of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook through the  Facebook component. An overview of all the Facebook Plug-ins may be accessed under  https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. During the course of this technical procedure,  Facebook is made aware of what specific sub-site of our website was visited by the data subject. 

If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook, Facebook detects with every call up to our website by the data subject—and for the entire duration of their stay on our Internet  site—which specific sub-site of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This  information is collected through the Facebook component and associated with the respective  Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Facebook buttons  integrated into our website, e.g. the “Like” button, or if the data subject submits a comment, then  Facebook matches this information with the personal Facebook user account of the data subject  and stores the personal data. 

Facebook always receives, through the Facebook component, information about a visit to our  website by the data subject, whenever the data subject is logged in at the same time on  Facebook during the time of the call-up to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the  data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If such a transmission of information to  Facebook is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off  from their Facebook account before a call-up to our website is made.

The data protection guideline published by Facebook, which is available at  https://facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and  use of personal data by Facebook. In addition, it is explained there what setting options  Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, different configuration  options are made available to allow the elimination of data transmission to Facebook. These  applications may be used by the data subject to eliminate a data transmission to Facebook. 

  1. Data protection provisions about the application and use of functions of the Amazon Partner program 

On this website, the controller has integrated Amazon components as a participant in the  Amazon partner program. The Amazon components were created by Amazon with the aim to  mediate customers through advertisements on various websites of the Amazon group, in  particular Amazon.co.uk, Local.Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.de, BuyVIP.com, Amazon.fr, Amazon.it  and Amazon.es in return for the payment of a commission. By using the Amazon components,  the controller may generate advertising revenue. 

The operating company of this Amazon component is Amazon EU S.à.r.l, 5 Rue Plaetis, L-2338  Luxembourg, Luxembourg. 

Amazon sets a cookie the information technology system of the data subject. The definition of  cookies is explained above. With each single call-up to one of the individual pages of this  Internet website, which is operated by the controller and in which an Amazon component was  integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will  automatically submit data for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of  commissions to Amazon through the respective Amazon component. During the course of this  technical procedure, Amazon receives personal information that is used to trace the origin of  orders from Amazon, and as a result, to allow the accounting of a commission. Among other  things, Amazon may understand that the data subject has clicked on an affiliate link on our  website. 

The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any  time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used, and thus permanently  deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent  Amazon from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In  addition, cookies already in use by Amazon may be deleted at anytime via a web browser or  other software programs. 

Further information and the actual data protection provisions of Amazon may be retrieved under  https://www.amazon.de/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=3312401&language=en_GB. 

  1. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Twitter 

On this website, the controller has integrated components of Twitter. Twitter is a multilingual,  publicly-accessible microblogging service on which users may publish and spread so-called  ‘tweets,’ e.g. short messages, which are limited to 280 characters. These short messages are  available for everyone, including those who are not logged on to Twitter. The tweets are also  displayed to so-called followers of the respective user. Followers are other Twitter users who  follow a user’s tweets. Furthermore, Twitter allows you to address a wide audience via hashtags,  links or retweets. 

The operating company of Twitter is Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco,  CA 94103, UNITED STATES.

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the  controller and on which a Twitter component (Twitter button) was integrated, the Internet browser  on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to download  a display of the corresponding Twitter component of Twitter. Further information about the  Twitter buttons is available under https://about.twitter.com/de/resources/buttons. During the  course of this technical procedure, Twitter gains knowledge of what specific sub-page of our  website was visited by the data subject. The purpose of the integration of the Twitter component  is a retransmission of the contents of this website to allow our users to introduce this web page  to the digital world and increase our visitor numbers. 

If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Twitter, Twitter detects with every call-up to  our website by the data subject and for the entire duration of their stay on our Internet site which  specific sub-page of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This information is  collected through the Twitter component and associated with the respective Twitter account of  the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Twitter buttons integrated on our  website, then Twitter assigns this information to the personal Twitter user account of the data  subject and stores the personal data. 

Twitter receives information via the Twitter component that the data subject has visited our  website, provided that the data subject is logged in on Twitter at the time of the call-up to our  website. This occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on the Twitter component or not. If  such a transmission of information to Twitter is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she  may prevent this by logging off from their Twitter account before a call-up to our website is made. 

The applicable data protection provisions of Twitter may be accessed under  https://twitter.com/privacy?lang=en. 

  1. Data protection provisions about the application and use of YouTube 

On this website, the controller has integrated components of YouTube. YouTube is an Internet  video portal that enables video publishers to set video clips and other users free of charge, which  also provides free viewing, review and commenting on them. YouTube allows you to publish all  kinds of videos, so you can access both full movies and TV broadcasts, as well as music videos,  trailers, and videos made by users via the Internet portal. 

The operating company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066,  UNITED STATES. The YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy,  Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, UNITED STATES. 

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the  controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) was integrated, the Internet  browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to  download a display of the corresponding YouTube component. Further information about  YouTube may be obtained under https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/en/. During the course of this  technical procedure, YouTube and Google gain knowledge of what specific sub-page of our  website was visited by the data subject. 

If the data subject is logged in on YouTube, YouTube recognizes with each call-up to a sub-page  that contains a YouTube video, which specific sub-page of our Internet site was visited by the  data subject. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the  respective YouTube account of the data subject. 

YouTube and Google will receive information through the YouTube component that the data  subject has visited our website, if the data subject at the time of the call to our website is logged  in on YouTube; this occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on a YouTube video or not. If 

such a transmission of this information to YouTube and Google is not desirable for the data  subject, the delivery may be prevented if the data subject logs off from their own YouTube  account before a call-up to our website is made. 

YouTube’s data protection provisions, available at  

https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/, provide information about the collection,  processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google. 

  1. Payment Method: Data protection provisions about the use of PayPal as a payment processor 

On this website, the controller has integrated components of PayPal. PayPal is an online  payment service provider. Payments are processed via so-called PayPal accounts, which  represent virtual private or business accounts. PayPal is also able to process virtual payments  through credit cards when a user does not have a PayPal account. A PayPal account is  managed via an e-mail address, which is why there are no classic account numbers. PayPal  makes it possible to trigger online payments to third parties or to receive payments. PayPal also  accepts trustee functions and offers buyer protection services. 

The European operating company of PayPal is PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. & Cie. S.C.A., 22-24  Boulevard Royal, 2449 Luxembourg, Luxembourg. 

If the data subject chooses “PayPal” as the payment option in the online shop during the  ordering process, we automatically transmit the data of the data subject to PayPal. By selecting  this payment option, the data subject agrees to the transfer of personal data required for  payment processing. 

The personal data transmitted to PayPal is usually first name, last name, address, email  address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number, or other data necessary for  payment processing. The processing of the purchase contract also requires such personal data,  which are in connection with the respective order. 

The transmission of the data is aimed at payment processing and fraud prevention. The  controller will transfer personal data to PayPal, in particular, if a legitimate interest in the  transmission is given. The personal data exchanged between PayPal and the controller for the  processing of the data will be transmitted by PayPal to economic credit agencies. This  transmission is intended for identity and creditworthiness checks. 

PayPal will, if necessary, pass on personal data to affiliates and service providers or  subcontractors to the extent that this is necessary to fulfill contractual obligations or for data to be  processed in the order. 

The data subject has the possibility to revoke consent for the handling of personal data at any  time from PayPal. A revocation shall not have any effect on personal data which must be  processed, used or transmitted in accordance with (contractual) payment processing. 

The applicable data protection provisions of PayPal may be retrieved under  https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full. 

  1. Legal basis for the processing 

Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain  consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the  performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when 

processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the  processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations  which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of  inquiries concerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by  which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the  processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may  be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This  would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age,  health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital  or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally,  processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for  processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if  processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or  by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental  rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such  processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically  mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed  if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR). 

  1. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party 

Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate interest  is to carry out our business in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders. 

  1. Period for which the personal data will be stored 

The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory  retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as  long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract. 

  1. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; Requirement necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide such data 

We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or  can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner).  Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with  personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example,  obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The  non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data  subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data  subject must contact any employee. The employee clarifies to the data subject whether the  provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of  the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences  of non-provision of the personal data. 

  1. Existence of automated decision-making 

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
