§ 6 Using our free test access

(1) Aside from the purely informational function of our website, we also offer you the option to request free test access. We provide relevant information below pursuant to Art. 13 of the GDPR in relation to the collection of your personal data, which apply should you decide to request free test access. Personal data includes all data personally identifiable to you, e.g. name, address, and e-mail address.

(2) The party responsible for the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 4 (7) of the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is CPB Software (Germany) GmbH, Im Bruch 3, 63897 Miltenberg, Germany, germany@cpb-software.com.

(4) Our free test access allows you to try out our web application without obligation before you enter into a contract with us. If you would like to request free test access, you must enter your e-mail address and your first and last name. You must also create a password of your choice to complete the application. Once you have requested free test access, we will use your e-mail address to send you a username generated by our system. You can then use the password you chose before together with the user name generated and sent to you via e-mail to log into this website and test our web application without obligation and free of charge. The reason for this procedure is the need to detect and prevent abuse of our free test access, to ensure our paid service is not undermined by repeated applications for free test access. For this purpose, we use your first and last name and e-mail address to check for abuse. If this is the case, you will not receive an e-mail from us with the generated user name you would use to log in for free test access.

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is Art. 6 (1.1) (f) of the GDPR. The legitimate interest as provided for by this provision, which we follow here, is the recognition and prevention of misuse of our free test access service.

(5) We store your name and your e-mail address, which you provide when applying for a test account, for two years following the expiry of the test account. We will delete your data after two years.

(6) You have rights pursuant to Articles 15 to 21 of the GDPR.

  • Right of access (Art. 15 GDPR)
  • Right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR)
  • Right to erasure ('right to be forgotten') (Art. 17 GDPR)
  • Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR)
  • Right to object to processing (Art. 21 GDPR)

Please contact our Data Protection Officer regarding these matters.

If you believe that the processing of your personal data violates data protection law or your rights to data protection are otherwise violated in any way, you can submit a complaint to the following competent data supervisory authority:

E-Mail: poststelle@lda.bayern.de

(7) The connection is encrypted using TLS technology to prevent unauthorised access to your personal data by third parties.

(8) If you apply for free test access, you have the opportunity to provide us with your consent so that we may contact you once by e-mail after the expiration of your test access so that we may request your feedback. Consent for us to contact you for this purpose is purely voluntary. You can still apply for test access even if you do not wish to give us your consent to later request feedback. The decision over whether or not we will send you a username for you to access our site will not be affected by whether or not you decided to grant us this consent. As already explained above, we will only decide to not send you a username in the event we detect an abuse.

If you should give us your consent that we may contact you once by e-mail after your test access expires for the purpose of requesting feedback, you can still revoke your consent at any time in accordance with Art. 7 (3.1) of the GDPR. Such a revocation alters the permissibility of processing your personal data for this purpose after you have provided it to us. You also have the rights mentioned in paragraph (6).
